Lord of the Rings Series Will Cost Amazon $465m

"Over at amazon is worth from. It's a story from late last week. The retail giant's highly anticipated. Lord of the rings will cost an eye popping four hundred and sixty five million dollars for its first season. According to the new zealand government's official information act filing. Yeah i'm gonna say that again one more time just to let it sink. Four hundred sixty five million dollars for one season of television and we don't even know how many episodes it's going to be. My understanding is that that figure includes the acquisition of the rights. So i don't know that anyone really knows what that figure entails because we reported that the rights alone were north of two hundred and fifty million dollars just for global rights alone to the property. But that's still an awful lot for one season of television usually those rights. You amortize the cost. Over the life of the series so that the first season drops down cetera. The shows already been renewed for season two. I think it's already you know. The plan is for five seasons in spinoff. so are they trying to amortize. That cost over. Are they gonna shoot seasons one and two back to back and this is quote unquote one-season a television that stretches over into two seasons of of television and and and the budget is that for two full seasons. I don't know either way. That is an eye popping number and if it doesn't include global rights even if you take out that to fifty a crazy amount of money it's still like more than more than double the cost of what a season of game of thrones would cost it's astounding. It is a tremendous amount of money and a tremendous amount of money for a show which has no costly above the line talent. It's not like the eight hundred and fifty people who are starring in that show are making a million dollars per episode. They are being paid. One would presume a reasonable amount. Let's just say eight a non impressive amount because they're not stars. You're not spending this money on cast. You're spending this money on on rights and production sets and costumes and and the global rights like we talked about. You know like yeah this. This number doesn't make any sense to me. It's a lot of money this a lot

What if every animal could fly?

"If all animals could fly. Everything lamb can fly so this does include humans. I don't think any of us talked about humans because we really want to focus on the animal bits so he can fly. But we're just not going to talk about. Yeah that's an interesting part. I mean we've probably talked. 'but people find in the past sure i imagine so. Yeah i think we had opposite on actually did we. Actually i couldn't remember. It seems like something we've done but only because just so on brand that it feels like we've done it before. Like ben thought we did a shark question before we did a shark quit rate they feel like i remember making the thumbnail for it and pretty sure we did it. I can picture. The thumbnail may head so theoretically exists somewhere in our back catalogue. It's an early episode. So actually chris. You don't really have to go flat episode because you're going to be the first one answering this question. I am so up so twenty. One by the way found ended for me. Yes so yeah. When i was thinking of this question the first thought that popped in my head was like birds flying into windows lot so like if all animals could fly. This would probably be a problem with other animals as well. Not just birds silent. Look a little more into that. And i didn't want to look at every single animal. I just wanted to focus on one. So i looked at the most populous. Animals and cows are the most populous animal other than humans at one point. Four six billion cows and that after that herb pigs and sheep at one billion each But i just want with cows so what. What if what happens if a cow flies in doing. I imagine it's going to be a lot worse than bird. A bigger splash on. Yeah but before it gets. I went to like look at birds. Like birds fly into windows in general like the statistics behind it so smithsonian researchers studied this in twenty fourteen. They estimated that arranged they ran the give like a pretty big range but They said three hundred sixty five million to one billion birds per year die from Find a window

GameStop Announces Plan To Sell Up to $1bn in Stock

"Game stop is going to sell up to three three and a half million new shares and they say they'll they'll sell no more than three and a half million shares and they will raise no more than one billion dollars. And i can understand the limit three and a half million shares. They've got sixty five million roughly outstanding. So it's like just called five percent. Maximum dilution which is not too terrible. But the amazing thing here is this is a good lesson for investors and something. I learned from marty whitman. Who has like one of the old school value investors and he. He passed away a few years ago but he. He's a really brilliant guy. And i recommend his books. I've read a couple of his books. And what whitman wittman was. He told the story of one of his books. He was working with the ceo of a company called neighbors. I think it was neighbors. Industries an oil and gas company and. He finally convinced the ceo. He's you don't raise money when you need it. You raise money when you can when the market is offering such good terms that you just can't say no and that's what's happening with game stop now it just so happens that they need it right there. Revenue in the past. Three years is down almost half its down like forty five percent it was nine point two billion i think like five point one billion now and you know like maybe a billion five may not even a third of it is online sales saw the rest of his coming through their stores and of course in twenty eighteen they got rid of. They sold their their. At stores they had something like thirteen hundred. At t. stores and they sold that business. They sold his assets. So they're all they're left with this game stop stores

Dallas Cowboys Reach Multi-Year Deal With Star Quarterback Dak Prescott

"Salary cabin number for two thousand and twenty one is going to be twenty two point two million dollars all right now. Head dak prescott. In franchise tag again this will happen in a procedural sense but had to cow tried to go at this with dak prescott on the franchise tag for the two thousand and twenty one season. We've talked about this a number of times. That value would have been thirty. Seven point seven million dollars so the fact that the cow is now have him onto the books. We're talking about the value that is on the books in the books. However you want to look at the books whether they're e books or physical books whatever the case may be that value is now twenty two point two million dollars now. I know that we have all said some things about the dallas cowboys but they are not complete dummies. They surely budgeted for the franchise tag value. Because let's be honest. They came about twenty four hours. We think you know. Close to having the actually placed the franchise tag and maybe carried out with that prescott. So the cowboys have room for the franchise tag at the very least so you look at that quake matt that adam schefter was kind enough to do for you. That is fifteen point. Five million dollars that the dallas cowboys suddenly have because they've got this long term deal with that prescott. This is something that we've been saying for two years now. If you do this you can. You can kick this down the road. You can prorate it you can extended you can whatever term you want to put on it. You can spread the impact of the deal out of the signing bonus of the overall guaranteed money out over the lives of the contract so it doesn't hit you all at once. That's the one killer about the franchise tag is that it is fully and completely guaranteed in franchise tag is a one year deal so the value of it last year and dak prescott was on the tag for thirty one point. Four million dollars. The two thousand twenty dallas cowboys had to absorb that value all at once and they would have had to have done it again. Here in two thousand and twenty one but because they have adjusted that they now have fifteen and a half million dollars that they were seemingly budgeting for dak prescott that now they can apply to different areas. Maybe it is a safety. Maybe it's a defensive end. Maybe it's a defensive tackle. Maybe it's you know an offensive tackle. But they want swing tackled death whatever the case may be. We know that the cowboys obviously hold the tenth overall. Pick in the draft. They could go a number of different directions there. They wanna cornerback kayla farther patrick's retain do wanna take one of the tackles and rashawn slater as all this is. This is setting up and this is an important thing. I want you to hear me here and watch me here. You cannot waste this money. If dallas cowboys the whole point and getting this done with thac prescott besides obviously establishing having the best player on your team for the foreseeable future the point in doing this is to alleviate the salary cap space now. And i don't like the term when now if you watch us often you know that but you look state of the nfc east. It is by sudha. I mean the philadelphia. Eagles are a disaster. The new york giants doping daniel jones is legitimate. The washington football team has a great team but is void of the most important position of the game and a quarterback. Maybe they'd get somebody this cycle as we all expect quarterbacks to change teams at a higher rate than usual but the case in point is at the dallas cowboys are now. We're going to see this all day on tuesday by the way and we'll talk about it of course but they're going to be overwhelming favorites to win the nfc streit and you think about the conference that they plan is really a contender in the nfc. And i mean that with all due respect to the reigning champion tampa bay buccaneers. But you've got the bucks you've got the green bay packers and then who scares you. May maybe the rams you believe in matthew stafford but the point is thinking about the afc. I mean the. Afc has the bills and the ravens and the chiefs and the titans and the steelers and the browns. I mean you could go. A number of different ways. Did the colts have carson. Wentz ends up getting his act together and so the cowboys play in the weakest division in the weaker conference and so now they have this opportunity to really kind of take their future in the here and now they have fifteen and a half million dollars that they weren't necessarily planning on having use it and if they don't use it it is all for not so i mean we are all imploring the dallas cowboys to ultimately use this salary cap space. This is a very very very luxurious gift. That they now have been afforded that they didn't previously have so shattered of course to the dallas cowboys. Let's see here let's move. I'm i wanna talk of course about the bonus the dak prescott because well. It's stupid large. I mean it's amazing. Dak prescott has now the largest signing bonus in the nfl. You look at joe flacco. Once upon a time. Got forty million. Dollars matt ryan forty six and a half. Remember if you're on the fence about this value. We've talked about this before as well. Matt ryan became the first quarterback in nfl history to average over. He had thirty but to average at least thirty million dollars per year with his new contract that he signed with the atlanta falcons in two thousand and eighteen. That was three years ago. Dak prescott signed a four six year. Deal whatever you wanna call it. That was three years ago. They matt ryan signed that he was the first quarterback to hit the thirty million dollars a year. Mark prescott just hit forty but the reality and we've been saying this forever is that there are so many deals coming around the bend. Josh allens gotta get paid. Lamar jackson's gotta get paid. Baker mayfield's got to get paid extra calories. He's going to get paid the year after that. It's going to be time for joe burrow to finally get paid and when all of those players get paid this forty million dollars a year. Mark the dak prescott got this one hundred twenty six million dollar. Total guaranteed is sixty six million dollar signing bonus all these things that are currently the top of the nfl. The most in nfl history. That's the verbiage in determining that you're hearing associated with this and it's all literally true but it's all going to get pushed down because all of these players on this list. Joe flacco matt ryan matthew stafford at fifty million signing bonus. Aaron rodgers fifty. Seven and a half russell wilson not going to be a dallas cowboy now by the way sixty five million dollars. Dak prescott topped that all of these quarterbacks in all likelihood we'll top that that's the reality of the nfl things are always moving in one direction. It is up

Bill Barnwell Breaks Down NFL Quarterback Moves

"So bill. We gave you do the math a whole month away from this podcast before our dependency bio chemically kicked back in so i just hope the last four weeks have been everything that you personally needed. Pablo got on many vacations. I turned around my life after six months of just staying watching football now. Bill barn wells weekly column on. Espn plus and he hosts the bill. Barnwell show podcast realistically. I have done something that few human beings have accomplished. I managed to get one pack of moments from nba. top shot. yeah. We share that same addiction. You are far deeper into the game than me. I realized over the weekend. I just want there to be an nfl top shot. Because i feel like that's going to happen right. It has to. i mean. Imagine the things you could do. You could send somebody that colts fake punt from years ago or or if you wanted to try some of your friends. Perhaps you could send the russell wilson interception from the nfl top shot to a certain person with the initials m used to host the show. Yeah just randomly picking in that example in those initials absolutely but bill. We dragged you back here. Speaking of a certain quarterback who threw a certain interception emotionally terrorized ours. Because this is an especially dramatic. Nfl offseason. they're all these big name. Quarterbacks who want out of these relationships that seemed from a distance at least pretty broken and russell wilson and the seahawks. I need to ask you about that. I because i know russ isn't feeling respected by head coach. Pete carroll reporting. I know that carol wants to revoke all of his cooking privileges. We've heard now. Russell wilson like storming out of meetings which is kind of funny to imagine like door very lightly slamming so this particular soap opera. What is all of it. Feel like to you much ado about nothing really. I mean i just i. Just don't buy russell wilson drama. I go back to his contract. Negotiations this is the same player in the same agent. Who wants imply that he would leave football in the middle of these negotiations entering the final year of his deal to try professional baseball. Where russell wilson once for the iraqis and the organization he hit to twenty eight in the low minors before returning to college football. It was not a realistic threat. But if that way does he want the seahawks to give him more helpful on the offensive line which has been sort of the crux of his public complaints. Yeah i do believe that. And i think that the seahawks could benefit from giving him more help. They relied on russell wilson to run his way out of sacks and free pressures from unblock players which has worked for that stretch buddies also taken a ton of hits cuss russell. Wilson plays the way he plays. He is going to take a ton of sacks regardless of how good his protection is the best way honestly pablo to get him. Hitless frequently would be to run the ball more. Which is the exact thing. Russell wilson was trying to get the seahawks do lasso last offseason. So there is something here but i very much doubt that leads to a trade. My favorite thing about this new cycle i think is that russell wilson has relayed via his wrapped. Adam schefter that he is not demanding a trade but if he were there are these four specific teams that he'd like to go to the bears. The cowboys the saints. The raiders does any of that make sense to you know not at all i mean the classic russell wilson tropez that ciara was going to pick teams him in new york in los angeles which this is the opposite that list even the teams he chose are so strange. Maybe you'd argue that. He chose teams with great offensive. Lions triumph of the seahawks. But the trade doesn't really add up the same. Stu have agreed offensive line. But they're like sixty five million dollars over the salary cap. The cowboys have a great line. Whenever everyone's healthy but they also have back prescott. that's not gonna work either the bears. I don't understand. They don't have a great line or any cap space. That one makes no sense to me on either. Level the raiders. Maybe are the most interesting and plausible candidate of the bunch with a great line and some cap space to work with. But when i think about jon. Gruden as raiders coach. He wants quarterbacks to do exactly what jon gruden wants on every single play. I don't think any if it really adds up to meaningful trae dialogue. I don't think there's going to be a conversation between the seahawks and another team about trying to make a trade for russell wilson work but this is twenty twenty one anything is possible

Big Bat, Loud Music: The Marcell Ozuna Experience

"Well david the braves made a run all the way to the last season and marcelo soon. It was a huge part of that. Can you remind us just how productive he was for the braves throughout this shortened season extremely productive at three thirty eight with a one thousand sixty seven opie s led the al in both homers with eighteen and rb is with fifty six high towering. Fly ball tepe center. Make it a three hundred night over. The batter's i straightaway center. I don't know if i've ever seen a ball go up there at fenway. I was saying the same thing up with the cameras are. He's a threat to win the triple crown. The last weekend in the season when his average fell back just a little bit still finished third batting average so he led the league in total bases. One hundred forty five was tied for second next since with thirty two and was third both obt at four thirty one and slugging percentage six thirty six so like i said extremely productive. If you watch a braves game you don't have to look too far for some marcelo. Zona antics was oona. Hits this ball eight hundred feet after he hits it he does a nice little stroll towards first and then he decides you know what. I'm just going to take a selfie right here. Tell us a little bit about his personality. What it meant for the clubhouse this past season. I can't think of another player that they could have signed to a one year deal like they did him a year ago in january and still have had in a year of kovin to have somebody come in and have the kind of profound impact he had on a team. You had to have a personality like he has which was really outgoing. He's a kind of gregarious guy. Everybody on the team lights. Not just what he does on the field but in the club house the energy the zone as a total package in every plays he's revered is kind of guy that he's so likable that he can play at boombox with salsa music at three in the morning on the team bus from the airport hotel. Crank it up and everybody just smiles instead of going turn off. That's the kind of personality has everybody loves. it was gonna signed a one year deal with atlanta. Just before last season he became a free agent and after months of uncertainty he finally decided to resign with atlanta. Recently four years sixty five million dollars for a guy that brought incredible protection to freddie freeman in his mvp year he exceeded expectations in atlanta. As you wrote david. His personality was on display during a recent zoom. Call with some reporters. What did you learn about his philosophy. Well he kind of put it specifically he said. I cannot have a bad day on the field as person. War is still happy because no everyday you will not be perfect day. You will not you. When i made they walk there. Were right so you had to be like in in in google. Not every day. You're going to make the world right so you have to be like always in a good mood.

That's the way you put it at the kirby cross. Everybody was just laughing as perfect. That's you. He refuses to let disappointments during the day whether they be over. Four day with three strikeouts or somebody on another team acting like an ass. It just doesn't let any of that. Get to take a person. Let's all roll off his back and kind of sees his role as always being there to bring everybody else up be energetic and spread that everybody

"about sixty five million" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence

"Once every five years with much pomp and pageantry the bombs communist leadership convenes in a national party congress thirteenth. One again in the capital hanoi. This week the expectation is that there will be a raft of stamp policies and new party leaders john despite the country's relatively low kobe numbers and positive economic performance. The party's position outside. The national conference center is weaker than it seems at the national party congress. They discuss issues confronting vietnam. They set policy and they elect the central committee. Politburo and the four top jobs. Charlie mccann is our southeast asia correspondent among them the most powerful job in the country. That is the party. Secretary-general and what's the overall tone at the congress. This time around pretty self. Congratulatory parties had a good year. They've handled the pandemic pretty well. Had just over fifteen hundred cases and fewer than fifty deaths and the economy actually grew by three percent but there's still a lot of disquiet and the party and indeed in the public disquiet in the party in the form of some kind of opposition. There's no organized opposition. Nobody's going to supplant the communist party anytime soon and ever since the nineteen eighties. When the country embarked on the transition from a century planned economy to market one the party has state its legitimacy on rising incomes on his ability to increase prosperity. And it's done that over. Four decades vietnam has transformed from one of the poorest countries in the world to middle income manufacturing powerhouse. But if you look beyond. Those headline figures are causes for concern. The economy has been growing at about seven percent. The last several years and the economy needs to reach that level of growth to keep the labor market. It's not clear that it can do so however at the same time as you have this depressed. Economic growth inequality is rising and social mobility is declining. okay that's about formal opposition parties but you mentioned disquiet among the public as well. What's happening. They're vietnamese can't express their discontent through politics. Because opposition parties are banned but informal criticism is growing. There are a lot of vietnamese. Social media users about sixty five million out of a total population of one hundred million according to our social british firm as level of education has improved in the country and more and more people have access to the internet. they've been exposed to values that are antithetical to the communist paradise that the regime is trying to build these values like democracy and human rights and they can express views on social media and so it's that disquiet than in the public that's causing the disquiet in the party. I mean how is the house. The party dealt with that space for criticism harshly. They have cracked down over the past five years. They've arrested two hundred eighty people for quote anti-state activities up from sixty eight in the previous five year period instructed the serum press to scrub phrases like civil society and human rights from their pages and in the months leading up to the national congress. This crackdown has intensified earlier. This month day sentenced three freelance journalists famous for criticizing the government to between eleven and fifteen years in prison. It's a lot easier to shoot off an angry tweet or facebook post than it is to organize in vietnam where protest is technically illegal but actually there have been a lot of protests in real life over the last several years so in two thousand eighteen for instance tens of thousands of vietnamese took to the streets. Because they're angry about a proposed law that they were worried would allow chinese companies to lease special economic zones for a ninety nine years as a lot of anti chinese sentiment in vietnam. Because there's a lot of concern that chinese infringing on their offering sovereignty and the protests so violent angry there were clashes between the police and protesters. The government eventually abandoned this law so a good pandemic response and the economic growth. That comes with that somewhat offset by this discontent. What else is on party leaders minds. Ironically trade is going to be a worry as well and i say -ironically because trade is a is a massive driver of economic growth. It is through trade. That vietnam has been able to transform itself into manufacturing powerhouse and yet at the same time it gives its export markets leverage over the government. So for instance in order to get the eu to agree to free trade deal last year. Vietnam had to agree to abolish forced labor and allow the creation of independent labor unions which was a massive concession but surely concerns such as that aren't limited to the you know means the party officials have to think very carefully about their relations with both china its biggest trade partner and the us biggest export market. The trump administration came down really hard on vietnam labeled it. A currency manipulator late last year and trump has described vietnam quote. Almost a single worst abuser of everybody for that reason. So the party will be very keen to rebuild the relationship with the biden administration. But at the same time i can't be seen to cozy up too closely to the us for fear of offending china. With whom it has an incredibly important relationship you know. Shares ideology shares along land border and they have an important trade relationship you know. China is largest source of materials and equipment for vietnam manufacturing industry so that it's a tricky balancing act required of party officials to get that relationship right so whoever emerges from the congress secretary general. There won't be much time for celebrating. He's gonna have a lengthy to do list.

Those headline figures are causes for concern. The economy has been growing at about seven percent. The last several years and the economy needs to reach that level of growth to keep the labor market. It's not clear that it can do so however at the same time as you have this depressed. Economic growth inequality is rising and social mobility is declining. okay that's about formal opposition parties but you mentioned disquiet among the public as well. What's happening. They're vietnamese can't express their discontent through politics. Because opposition parties are banned but informal criticism is growing. There are a lot of vietnamese. Social media users about sixty five million out of a total population of one hundred million according to our social british firm as level of education has improved in the country and more and more people have access to the internet. they've been exposed to values that are antithetical to the communist paradise that the regime is trying to build these values like democracy and human rights and they can express views on social media and so it's that disquiet than in the public that's causing the disquiet in the party. I mean how is the house. The party dealt with that space for criticism harshly. They have cracked down over the past five years. They've arrested two hundred eighty people for quote anti-state activities up from sixty eight in the previous five year period instructed the serum press to scrub phrases like civil society and human rights from their pages and in the months leading up to the national congress. This crackdown has intensified earlier. This month day sentenced three freelance journalists famous for criticizing the government to between eleven and fifteen years in prison. It's a lot easier to shoot off an angry tweet or facebook post than it is to organize in vietnam where protest is technically illegal but actually there have been a lot of protests in real life over the last several years so in two thousand eighteen for instance tens of thousands of vietnamese took to the streets. Because they're angry about a proposed law that they were worried would allow chinese companies to lease special economic zones for a ninety nine years as a lot of anti chinese sentiment in vietnam. Because there's a lot of concern that chinese infringing on their offering sovereignty and the protests so violent angry there were clashes between the police and protesters. The government eventually abandoned this law so a good pandemic response and the economic growth. That comes with that somewhat offset by this discontent. What else is on party leaders minds. Ironically trade is going to be a worry as well and i say -ironically because trade is a is a massive driver of economic growth. It is through trade. That vietnam has been able to transform itself into manufacturing powerhouse and yet at the same time it gives its export markets leverage over the government. So for instance in order to get the eu to agree to free trade deal last year. Vietnam had to agree to abolish forced labor and allow the creation of independent labor unions which was a massive concession but surely concerns such as that aren't limited to the you know means the party officials have to think very carefully about their relations with both china its biggest trade partner and the us biggest export market. The trump administration came down really hard on vietnam labeled it. A currency manipulator late last year and trump has described vietnam quote. Almost a single worst abuser of everybody for that reason. So the party will be very keen to rebuild the relationship with the biden administration. But at the same time i can't be seen to cozy up too closely to the us for fear of offending china. With whom it has an incredibly important relationship you know. Shares ideology shares along land border and they have an important trade relationship you know. China is largest source of materials and equipment for vietnam manufacturing industry so that it's a tricky balancing act required of party officials to get that relationship right so whoever emerges from the congress secretary general. There won't be much time for celebrating. He's gonna have a lengthy to do list.

"about sixty five million" Discussed on Talking Biotech Podcast

"Welcome to the talking biotech. podcast cast. It's the weekly podcast about agriculture. In medicine with an emphasis on biotechnology and the good things we can do for people and a planet kevin fulda. I'm a professor podcast host. Who really cares about science communication and wants you to know the current events that are happening in the field of biotechnology. Today we're going to venture into some space that we have not yet ventured into. And i i really feel neglected because one of the coolest organisms in the world in terms of <hes>. Being kind of at the front edge of a lot of different processes is algae from its potential use in animal feed to its ability to sequester carbon to be able to produce biofuels and many other different products. Algae has been an organism that people have looked at very carefully for quite a few years now. And it's completely inexcusable. That i have not covered here yet so with that in mind. We have an expert. Dr steven mayfield. Who's a professor at the university of california san diego and the director of the california center for lg biotechnology. Welcome to the podcast. Steve thanks for having me kevin. This is great. Because i really appreciate you as a scientist but i really enjoyed all the time. We've gotten the hang out in the last few years and i've learned so much from you. So thank you for doing this. Yeah can i. Can i start podcast by correcting you on something. Sure no you said. We haven't discussed algiere thought too much about algae every single one of us. Every day has an algae product that we use. Guess what that is <hes>. Let me see day. Algae either agressor ice cream or something will. It could be as goes but it turns out. It's gasoline so one hundred percent of our petroleum is ancient fossil algae. It's not melting dinosaurs. It's not plant. Those became coal. All crude oil comes from algae so every time you drive a car every time you pick up a plastic spoon every time you have touch any chemical. You're touching ancient algae oil. Wow that's really cool. I'd say i was one of those <hes>. firm believers that. When i was putting gas in the car i was putting in cycads and weird weird old dinosaur plants and that you know where i thought i was doing. Everyone thinks it's melted dinosaurs and in fact all fossil fuel is much older than the dinosaurs. They're only go back about sixty five million years and some of the crude oil that pull out of the ground goes back three hundred and fifty million years. Wow that was only algae back then. It was only algae. Yeah there wasn't any kind of dinosaur or any there weren't there weren't any large or so let let's really start there with the fundamentals and that's a great point that you make and if we were to describe what algae is to somebody what is it in. Why is it an attractive system to harness for the production of useful bio-molecules well so the little liberal definition of it is really simple. It is just aquatic photosynthetic organisms. So it's just plants that live one hundred percent. Water both micro algae. That's the ones. I primarily work with a little tiny guys that you can barely see and then we have macro algae or kelp and both of those fallen algae and the reason they are cool things in the reason we think about him is because they are the most efficient photosynthetic organisms on the planet much more efficient than terrestrial plants like corn or sugarcane etc. And because they dominate the oceans. There's just a lot of stuff that they make that we use you mentioned ice cream. That's just one of them. Sushi the wrapping on sushi nutraceutical. Of course the list goes on and on so you say. They're very efficient photosynthesis. What is it that makes them so efficient. Well so even though we worry about. Climate change now in the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in fact photosynthesis evolved as when the carbon levels. The co two levels were much higher in the atmosphere than they are today <hes>. So when cyanobacteria showed up about three and a half billion years ago twenty percent of the atmosphere was co two animals could not live. Not not only us microorganisms. Couldn't live back then. There was no oxygen oxygen. A huge amount of co two cyanobacteria showed up. They turned all of that co two into fixed carbon. That's why we have petroleum and oxygen and once that oxygen became available. Then the rest of the world you know the rest of the animals could show up in survive right. So what does that mean. What that means is that the enzymes that fix carbon evolved had a time when the co two levels were much higher so plants are actually inefficient at the level of co two. We have in the atmosphere today. Four hundred parts per million at one time it was twenty thousand parts per million so believe it or not the enzymes that fix co to do much better at higher. Co two levels. Well in water you can saturate water much higher. Concentrations of co two than four hundred parts per million and that's commonly what happens right. The co two levels are much higher in the oceans. They're hiring aquatic than they are in the air and therefore algae grow. There are more efficient than plants. So it's not that the enzymes are different. It's not that the sunlight is different or any of the rest of the parts of photosynthesis. It's simply that there's higher levels of c o two so

"Tony shay was a rarity a business. Executive who was almost universally beloved shade died november twenty seventh at the age of forty six following injuries sustained in a house. Fire connecticut home. His death prompted outpourings of stories about shay's unusual and unusually successful approach to business for twenty years. he was. ceo zappa dot com the online shoe and clothing retailer. He let it with philosophy summed up in the two word title of his best selling book delivering happiness in two thousand ten. He told cbs news. He believed it was possible to make customers. Employees and investors happy while still turning a profit which he did in spades amazon acquired zappa's dot com in two thousand nine for one point two billion dollars shea invested in the online shoe cite zappa's dot com. Then call shoe site dot com in nineteen ninety nine a young entrepreneur. He had already founded in grown and online. Advertising site called link exchange a year earlier at the age of twenty four. He sold link exchange to microsoft for two hundred sixty five million dollars shortly after investing in shusei dot com. He became ceo and the company changed. Its name to zappa's taken from the spanish word for shoes ocado when she was initially pitched on investing in shoe site dot com. He was skeptical in nineteen ninety nine. The beginning of the internet bubble ecommerce was still young and untested. conventional wisdom. Was that you couldn't sell shoes online. Because customers were used to try on shoes before buying them but then she learned that five percent of shoe buyers already purchase shoes from catalogs. That's five percent of what was then a forty billion dollar market that persuaded shea to take a crack at online shoe sales even though he later told cbs news. I'm not a shoe person at all. Rather he would wear one pair for two years until they wore out and then by another to conquer the hurdle that customers needed to try on shoes shape pioneer to custom. We take for granted today. Zappa's would ship for free and allow returns for a year. It was not uncommon for customers to order five pairs of shoes in return for. That was okay with shay. He wanted customers for life to that end. He invested in domestic call center workforce rather than outsourcing to countries with cheaper labour famously. He empowered those customer support employees to do whatever they needed to make customers happy. There are no time limits on phone calls one. Possibly apocryphal story was that a worker stayed on the phone with one customer. For more than five hours. Critics wondered how zappa's could make money by investing so much in the people who answered the phones after all only about five percent of customers ordered on the phone the rest purchased online shea. Believe however that the phone was branding opportunity customer service by workers who bent over backwards to help them would be customers forever and of course they tell others about their experiences in addition he wanted his employees to be so happy that they would consider working at zappa's a calling not a career. He went so far as to offer to pay new employees to quit. The offer received a few weeks into a new job. Ranged from about one thousand to three thousand dollars the idea. He didn't want employees to stay if they weren't passionate about the job and the culture his quirky management technique became widely known simply as the offer growth was swift in two thousand revenues. Were about one point. Six million dollars by the time of the sale nine years later revenues had reached a billion dollars after the amazon acquisition shea. Stayed on as ceo. He retired last summer. Devoting himself to an economic development project in las vegas where he lived under shays. Leadership amazon is said to have allowed zappa's to remain as independent as an amazon acquisition. Could be recently. However the company's begun integrating it more fully offering prime rewards to zappa's customers the idea to help it. Maintain competitiveness against chains like dsw owned by conglomerate designer brands with several hundred warehouse stores. Nationwide dsw's one of the largest shoe retailers in america it consistently plies customers with loyalty discounts and coupons in an effort to get them to return to its brick and mortar stores again and again but cova closures hit designer brands. Hard in the second quarter which offers first sales fell. Almost in half third quarter results will be released next week. Twenty years after a young tony shay became convinced that yes you could sell shoes online. He turned out to be not only unconventional but prescient in a pandemic. it may be about the only place to sell them in a statement following shays death zappa. Ceo kadosh dish.

Maria cantwell spoke about the impact that some washington tribes of experienced because of the lack of service for the caulfield tribe in north central washington. Many of the households don't have access to the internet. This means many of thousands don't have access to emergency service. Notifications connectivity is critically important during fire season especially this year as fires have forced evacuations from homes and businesses. It's absolutely unacceptable for these tribes and many others living on tribal lands throughout the state of washington to not have access to basic reliable broadband. Cantwell cosponsored the legislation. Which would require technical assistance be provided to the under served native communities and set aside fcc and usda funding for broadband deployment. The bill passed in a bipartisan voice. Vote wednesday and now heads to the full senate for consideration for national native news. I'm steve jackson reporting from spokane. A group made up of five.

Gaming league of legends team is happening. The content creator said the team won't be created until at least after the upcoming season however And so he's tweeted that he wants to own his own league of legends team And the us something in the works and it's not clear in which you know which region or anything like that but It's funny he says since his initial post industry voices raisch ranging from tsm to fanatic co saint matthews have reached out and expressed interest in collaborating with the creator was nearly forty six million subscribers on his main youtube channel right so we've talked a lot about celebrities going and starting sports teams right We have david beckham with guild and you have a bunch of nba stars who have all invested this is.

I'm curious if you guys are looking at this as a unique occurrence or is just more of what's been happening lindsay ugo i. I don't want to jump down this one. What do you think i to be a paul thought. 'cause you have the most feelings about celebrities in the east space so now that it's a gaming celebrities at different so he's not really a gaming celebrity right duke celebrity. Get but he gave to. There's a simple reason why i like this better right. The guy has forty six million captive eyeballs. Right when this is your starting point.

Trump says he'll use his own cash to fund his campaign if needed

"Finally, there's some talk of. A cash crunch. Now for the trump campaign incumbents generally have a financial advantage but there's reporting that that the trump campaign has raised one point one billion dollars since the beginning of twenty, eight nineteen and has spent more than eight hundred million of that already, and some questioning of why the trump campaign for example, spent money at a super ad long before average voters are tuned. In and meanwhile Jason the Biden campaign raised three, hundred, sixty, five, million dollars in August alone, which is a new one month record for fundraising like that and I. Mean obviously money is not everything trump was outspent in in two thousand sixteen but it's it's interesting to wonder whether the management of these campaigns could play play a role in the dynamic in these last few weeks to. Share and I think you know the Biden people. They have a lot of support in among wealthy people. I think Kamala Harris has been probably a good fundraiser among California's well to do, and so I think you know a lot of a lot of people have decided. that you people who run companies and so on. Have decided that you know they don't want any more of the trump show and I do think that they're going to give Biden a fundraising advantage I saw that the president is thinking about spending. Hundred million dollars of his own money by. You know I think I think that that's that that's a red flag for him. If he doesn't have enough if they don't have enough, for example, the contest in Michigan Nafta books on other states and that's also. Going back to what Kim said about the Senate not just going to hurt the president but hurt Republican chances in the Senate if the trump campaign has to pull back in be more selective about where they're spending.

Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak

"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time
