"A student walked into a Portland area high school with a gun But that gun was never fired thanks to the actions of a coach Brian Calvert shares what's happened since Football has been ingrained in Keenan Lowe Who is a game that you know my dad introducing you to and that was our special bond when I was a young young kid and so I grew up with football football really became my mentor and where I really learned how to become a young man and how to literally and figuratively pick myself up off the dirt and get back up and keep going forward as he played high school and college ball of a lessons he took away opened his mind You get a chance to really learn people through the sport just because by nature the team is just so big and there's just so many different type of people and you become brothers with them and really the only thing that matters is the colors of your Jersey That's where he says he developed his sense of empathy a trait that would serve him well once he became a football coach and security officer at park rose high school May 17th 2019 The Friday and it was kind of just a day like any other day and I work security in the school and so I get a call And go down to that classroom and the kids not in that classroom as soon as I kind of go to leave that classroom a student pops open the door and he's holding the shotgun When the video was played on TV a reporter from KOI N described what he saw It's just an absolute stunning situation together This is after he's been disarmed Yes he's taking the shotgun away You see the far end of the hallway where the other teacher has the shotgun So coach Keenan Lowe the former organ ducks football player is just holding on to him And they're talking And you can tell the emotions that are going on I was able to give him a hug and we shared some pretty special moments that was caught on that security film that most people have seen So again it was just a moment in my life That's the way I look at it It was just a moment in his life too but you know people wonder why I reacted that way and why I gave the kid a hug and why I was so empathetic to the kid A lot of us may never be prepared for a moment so intense Keenan Lowe says his time coaching at park rose opened his heart You know I was coaching kids that were homeless I was coaching kids with anger issues I was coaching kids that were hungry that had divorced parents that had parents that passed away That was coaching kids that didn't have much at all And through that experience I really learned kind of the struggle of what some kids go through and I really gave a true understanding of what their lives are Today Keenan is still coaching different school but same values and he's written a book titled hometown victory a coach's story of football fate and coming home You know personal thoughts on what happened in the hallways there at that studio But it's just so much more It's my life A life that at age 32 seems to have the wisdom of someone who's been around twice as long and Keenan Lowe credits football for the hope he has today And finding that positivity and putting out that positivity So I'm hopeful for that I'm hopeful

"Andy Warhol's shot sage blue Maryland becomes the most expensive work by a U.S. artist sold at auction. By The Associated Press, New York. Andy Warhol's shot sage blue Maryland sold for a cool $195 million on Monday, making the iconic portrait of Marilyn Monroe, the most expensive work by a U.S. artist, ever sold at auction. The 1964 silk screen image shows Monroe and vibrant close up. Hair yellow, eyeshadow blue and lips red on a rich blue background. It's almost the most expensive piece from the 20th century ever auctioned, according to Christie's auction house in New York, where the sale took place. The Warhol sale unseated the previous record holder and another modern master, Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose 1982 painting untitled of a skull like face sold for a record 110 and a half $1 million at Sotheby's in 2017. Christie's said an unnamed buyer made the purchase Monday night. When the auction was announced earlier this year, they estimated it could go for as much as $200 million. It's an amazing price, said Alex rotter, chairman of Christie's 20th and 21st century arts department. Let it sink in. It's quite something. This is where we wanted to be clearly, said Guillaume ceruti, CEO of Christie's. It proves we are in a very resilient art market. The proceeds of the sale will go to the Thomas and Doris ammon foundation Zürich, which put the painting up for auction, the foundation aims to help children with healthcare and educational programs. Warhol created more than one image of Monroe, this particular painting has been exhibited in museums around the world..

"We're here and today. We're going to be talking about tesla stock because tesla did just have its best day in more than two months so we'll spend some time on that we've also got a couple of studies on adoption of electric vehicles. News out of china a really cool new accolade for the model three and a couple of stories as well all right. So tesla stock finishing up five point three percent today to six hundred and fifty six dollars. Fifty seven cents that compared to the nasdaq up just one tenth of a percent so actually a really strong over performance by tesla today in a relatively mixed macro market in fact tesla was actually the best performing stock out of the entire s and p five hundred or nasdaq one hundred today now even though tussles over performance today only brought the stock back to the level that it was five weeks ago. Still nice to see. An alex like the strength has continued in after hours. Tesla almost another full percent in after australian azam recording as often as the case there is no clear indicator of what was driving that performance today and in those cases we kinda tend to look for something that may have of course. We had those updates yesterday. From both. Adam johnson morgan stanley and alex rotter piper sandler. Today there was some positive commentary around tesla appearing on cnbc. So joe terranova one of the frequent contributors there. He's these senior managing director of virtus investment. Partners they manage around hundred sixty six billion dollars and he announced that he's been buying tusla's seemed to present it as more of a trade than a long-term investment saying that he was quote trying to capture an opportunity and mega cap technology where there has been under performance and so he mentioned tesla and netflix. As being a couple of those high market cap underperformers as of late so he seems to expect a rebound there and he's trying to capture that he did note that he does have a stop loss at five ninety. Three fifty. I believe so. That's why i say. Probably just a trade. But i think the comments there could give some insight into just sentiment perception of tesla right now on the street and of course his comments on cnbc could further perpetuate that sentiment. So i think tussles up a little bit before that but that could have helped with sustaining or furthering the rally today then another item that i saw getting a lot of attention. Lot of coverage today was a new study from consulting accounting firm ernst and young in ny unexpected rates of electric vehicle adoption previously. Eny had forecast electric vehicle sales to surpass internal combustion engine vehicle sales in twenty thirty eight..

"Everybody robbing our here. And today we're gonna be talking a little bit about tesla stock. We have notes from alex rotter at piper sandler and adam. Jones born morgan stanley. Then we've got an update on bitcoin which hit a quarterly low today. So that'll affect tesla's second quarter results and we've got some news out of china does a stock flattening out for the week today finishing up about half a percent to six hundred twenty three dollars. Seventy one cents. That compared to the nasdaq up. Eight tenths of a percent. I will start off here with the new. No from alex potter. Alex has been on the podcast a few times in the past there definitely recommend checking those episodes out but the update a note from piper sandler today is forecasting out electric vehicle sales through twenty forty globally. And by brandt. I was really liked this kind of stuff. Because as i've talked about i have a really long term perspective hand. Sometimes we see analysts notes that are only valuing hustle on a couple of years out. And that's just not going to capture. Y investors are owning the stock or all the changes that are going to happen in the automotive industry over the next couple of decades. Obviously any forecast for that kind of time. Horizon is going to be off but even the act of having to think through those things as helpful and the forecast itself put some numbers around us scenario that could materialize anyway. They've gone through brand by brand region by region to forecast like fecal sales through twenty forty. This pure be none of that plug in hybrid stuff and headline numbers. They're saying about two and a quarter million b. e. v. sold in twenty twenty so actual market share of about three percent. They forecast that to increase to about eighteen. Million vehicles and twenty twenty five about eighteen percent market share forty five million vehicles in twenty thirty forty five percent share seventy million by twenty thirty five seventy five percent and eighty one million by twenty forty or ninety four percent share so taking a look at how they break that down by brand. I think this chart is organized by today's volume levels for total automotives receive. Vw group toyota at the top..

"It's so we were just an analysis. Your question chris but we were just talking to david maryland. Scott who's one of our investors because we were on with mitch jackson too. So i love hearing. That you guys are to be with mitch and clubhouse. He's amazing he's such a good clubhouse host to which is that's hard i mean i have a male learning from him so anyways In david wrote the fan accuracy book right so the neuroscience of fandom and we were just talking about What what is the magical thing that makes makes people love and support you. You know whether it's music or a brand that you buy or a piece of software. Whatever it is and i don't i don't really know i mean like we all spark for different things you know but it's my job as the ceo to know how to we'll we'll just park right and no-one delighted up so lately what we do is two things happen number one. You connect your social channels to our brain and the brain examines everything you've ever published for the last year across any social channel it's looking for the highest engaging. Post the stuff your customers. Your audience likes they respond to the request and comment on and then we build the writing model based on what we know that we apply that model to anything. You give the brain so if you gave a brain of video like this the podcast video we will automatically transcribe the video. And then we will apply the writing model to that transcription and looking for those hot words. Keys key phrases and Idea is basically that we already know your customer. They're gonna respond to and it gets smarter. The more you put in more it learns and like you. You mentioned chris you can curate tweak it and give it some guidance which you should because it's it is a robot in the end and the human as displaying here is what matters the human nose to leave space right that kind of thing and so essentially in a matter of seconds or minutes depending on how long your video we do this with any audio we do with any written content as well you push a button and boom you'll get forty eight hundred social posts and they're not just it's not just social posts. It's like the best ones that we already know. People wanna like creator. Watch are here right. Yeah and it's not. You guys use the analogy all the time. And that is Let me make sure. I get this right we to third base and then you bring it. Home is that right. Yeah the bases and then we bumped for you. Or i don't know that's that's pretty much the analogy but it's it's a key point and i think a lot of people in terms of a if they think that it's automated you just said it and forget it and that is absolutely not the case and it's it's ineffective as content creator. Maybe a little lazy. Especially if you know. When i i'll take this video right here and i'll i'll throw it in lately off to chop it into bits because it can only take so. Many words at a time nudge nudge to the year developers. I can tell you by the way okay. That's that's for the after show you have so many users it'll break. That's why okay. Well hey nice problem to have right. So i'll throw this video in there and you know it'll be split up and if i were to just you know select all my social media platforms for deal casters for myself for jim and then just whatever it gives me. Turn around and shoot it out. Not that it wouldn't make sense it. There's just no human contact's around it and it's not like you gotta spend an inordinate amount of time you can program your typical hashtags. Your your typical at your typical. You know you put in a link. You just have to kind of nudge it to give it some space like you talk about. But sometimes what you say and what the transcript is is not. I would actually say most of the time for me is not what you're actually putting in that message and so it may be at a point where you're talking about something and you're maybe you're talking about your history at you know with the boys club or whatever might take nothing that you say but it will be some sort of summers ation under four hundred are under two hundred eighty characters that really pulls people in and the video clip alongside of it is what gets people there. It's it's the pattern interrupt and it's that attention for for content creators lately. Just it's just next level in terms of being able to do that stuff thank you. And that's the idea right. It's just to find we're talking about finding the spark right so like let the i find the spark like you said it's the same thing so i actually don't even believe this. Of course we use lately to market lately and we use nothing else and we have a ninety eight percent conversion because the ai is smart. But i also and so. I let my team do that. So i will. I'll ask you for this file. Is you know and a give it to alex. Alex rotter generate. Alex puts the human touch on it. Because i don't have time to do this. And then katie schedules right. That's how we do it. But i also go back and listen to everyone that i do and i try to find five. I wanna see how. I'm doing to the ira. And i try to find five or so spark moments where i personally published and then they i learned from what i published two right. So there's a reason to also do your own fully manual post because it gets smart that way and it's been interesting to were behind the scenes. We're like loading the brain up with best practices content across all of our database. Now and looking for these human elements and how to better find a better job of highlighting them for you or even even in some cases doing the summary for you so you wouldn't even have to do it exciting. Because people they stockman they get an. It's not big. Had just you know some people can see through the mire and pull out the nuggets up. People can't some of the same rules still apply right so you know what it's helped me do as well as understand twitter better. It's helped me. Because i think not too long ago. I'm like i mean. Do i even try to lean into this now. I mean really twitter. I mean there's so many other things but it's really helped me understand some of these platforms more because at the pulled. Some of those clouds away and You know eased up some of that stuff and set some things and made it. You know so that you know. You're setting the ball on the tee so to speak to us baseball sort of talk to europe. They're like what exactly data talk like know soccer. Whatever yeah yes soccer. i'll tell you 'cause 'cause i introduced krista the lately and and what. It was chris bro when he did the demo for me and he just like. Oh you got a block. I actually had a blog post and he put it in lately. And i'm and i'm not kidding. Literally three minutes later it had taken this blog post. I had written a few years ago. And it created a one hundred fifty unique pieces of content and i was just like my mind was blown and i was like that would've taken me forever to even think.
Did Bill Gates Seriously Short TSLA Stock
"Robbed our here and today we're going to be talking about bill gates response to on musk's claims the oregon podcast a couple of weeks. Back that get heard. That bill gates had been shorting stock. We've also got some news on the broader electric vehicle automotive market an interesting response from yvonne on an article from the washington post. And of course. We've gotta talk about tesla stock. It's about wild couple of days. We had the interview yesterday with alex rotter so we didn't get a chance to talk about it. But of course yesterday. Tuesday february twenty. Third tesla dropped to a low of six hundred nineteen dollars per share. That was down more than thirteen percent from the prior. Close then of course. We saw us swift recovery in the market. And from tesla tesla finishing down just two percent yesterday on the biggest volume day that we've seen in over a month and a half with sixty six million shares trading hands yesterday. So i talked about on monday and we briefly talked about yesterday in the interview as well. A lot of this is tied to expectation on interest rates. So yesterday fed chairman. Jerome powell made comments to congress. Indicating the current monetary policy is expected to continue for some time as economic uncertainty remains so not to get too deep into that. We've talked about that. Of course in the past but as far as tussles yesterday certainly was not isolated to tesla. Those sort of concerns were broadly extended to high growth. Stocks tussle obviously falls in that category. And i think the volatility there serves as a nice quarterly reminder that you have to be very very careful with stop losses on a volatile stock like tussle as for today tesla continue to rebound finishing up six point two percent to seven hundred and forty dollars two cents. That compared to the nasdaq up one percent. All right so i up today. I want to continue a conversation that we began a couple of weeks back after yvonne. Musk went on joe. Rogan's podcast for the third time and said that he had heard from people he believes would know that bill gates had shorted tesla. Yvonne brought that up in response to a question from joe rogan on the tesla semi citing that bill gates in a blog. Post a few months back had said that eighteen wheel electric semi is probably would never work so allen's claim here understand. We drawing a lot of attention not the first time something like this has happened between musk and gates last year. He did by his first electric vehicle. The porsche ticon. Which at the time. Maybe it wasn't so clear why he didn't by ordering vehicle up until that point. Well now we might have a better answer for that. But he talked about the decision in an interview with marquez brownlee and it seemed to be a relatively tepid endorsement of electric vehicles gatesville right up ranging anxiety as a problem and elon. Musk responded to that interview. Not necessarily gives purchase of tycoon but those comments in general by saying that quote my conversations with gates have been underwhelming to be honest and so that catches us up to today and then we have launched claiming that he heard gates which tesla now in the last week. We've had both cnbc and bloomberg asked gates directly about that claim. I think gates tone is important these responses so i will play the actual clip. The i wanna hear from andrew. Ross sorkin cnbc asking gates so so you're not sure tesla's stock were clear. Yeah i'm not. I don't talk about my investment. But i think he should be very proud of what he's done. Okay so technically there. He did say yeah. I'm not but it sounded like he was more starting a sentence of saying yeah. I'm not going to talk about my investments not yet. I'm not sure tesla because he interrupts himself and says i don't want to talk about my investments so to me. That's a no comment. Rather than a denial. What's interesting here is his reason saying he doesn't wanna talk about his investments but in the exact same interview. He talks about his investments multiple times. He says quote when i invested in impossible foods or beyond me or quantum scape. I was doing that just to help their own climate. Now it looks like those three will be very successful companies. And so i'll have more money to put into the tough areas a climate like cement and steel and quote. Okay so he says he doesn't want to talk about his investments but then he in response to another question talks about his investments in impossible foods beyond me quantum scape and then how does investments are doing and that i'll have more money to then go on an invest in other stuff. I mean how much more could you talk about your investments. And he uses the first person tense. You're saying i invested. He's asked about bitcoin and he says quote. I don't own bitcoin. I'm not short bitcoin. So i've taken a neutral view and quote so for bitcoin. Perfectly fine to say i'm not short bitcoin. Same question for tesla. oh. I don't want to talk about my investments that we just spent a bunch of time talking about. If you're not going to answer the question at least come up with a better non answer. That doesn't immediately contradict yourself. He has to have known that he'll be asked about that and yet seems completely content guard answer so that was last week if there was any doubt left after that because he did start off. By saying yeah. I'm not before interrupting himself as we said. Here's gates on bloomberg yesterday so we had five days to think about this answering the same question from emily. Chang yuan has in the past claimed you shorted tesla and i wonder if there's any truth to that Well you know i think. Test us on amazed seen company I wish you know own. Been more on the long side. But i it's it's great And you know i have. Lots of relatives won't tassels Helped by for them. So you know nothing. But positive thoughts about tesla role. Okay so if the answer to the cnbc question was a bit of a flood. There was a clear opportunity to just say. Hey i'm not sure. Tesla was jor tesla and again gates passes and he sure doesn't look comfortable to me answering the question. Belief is that it looks pretty clear. That bill gates was short. Tesla who knows if he's still is it'd be surprised but come on. How are you going to be all about climate change and then short the one company that's doing more than any other company on earth to combat it. If you don't think it's a good investment you think it's overvalued you can just not invest in it. No one has any problem with that but too short it push the stock price down. Make it more difficult for tesla to raise capital. That's something else entirely.
