"A little automotive darwinism always focuses the mind. I'm Eddie alterman, and this is car show. My podcast about why we drive what we drive. I'm with my friend and fellow kargi, Malcolm gladwell. We're on the pockmarked slushy switchback roads of upstate New York. I first met Malcolm back in 2013 when he chided me about something I'd written in car and driver. We've been friends ever since. And today we are on a vision quest. We are looking for the soul of a sports sedan. We are also looking for lunch. And we're doing it at the wheel of gladwell zone 2003, BMW M 5. This is a car that is fully accepted by me, and most other car geeks, as the best sports sedan of all time. Not just of its generation, not just the best sports sedan that BMW ever made. No, the best fast forward door that ever was. And it's no wonder BMW made it. BMW built its reputation on sports sedans and kooks, not sports cars. Going back to the 60s, BMW made upright little bricks, harboring dark souls. Fast, terrible goblins from the black forest of Germany. With names like 2002 and three 25 IX. They would sneak up behind your Mustang on a moonlit tulane road and terrorize you for however long it took them to pass. There are many jokes about the people who own them. What's the difference between a porcupine and a BMW? Porcupines have their pricks on the outside. BMW sports sedans were always better than their sports cars. They didn't make flying pizza slices like Ferrari or pantera did. They made cars that flew under the radar. Which is why many people, cops included, might look at this high performance version of the respectable 5 series and see just another country club car. But to those in the know, the stealth factor is a huge part of the appeal. It's what makes the M 5 so exotic. And it is why we are somewhat comfortable doing extra legal speeds on the back roads of the cop infested, Hudson valley. This is no flying pizza slice. On its surface, it's just a middle of the pack BMW. But underneath, that's where the magic happens. This version of the BMW M 5 is the most responsive sports sedan ever built. The most poised. The most sensitive. Oh, we've got to put it in the sport. Oh yeah, it's got the sport. Sport is real. Yeah, definitely. The throttle response is dramatically quicker. Yeah. With sports. I'm offended they have a sports setting. It should just be tuned to sports. Right. I don't understand who would drive this car and not want it to sport mode. It's kind of like 11 Nigel tufnel stamp. Yeah, exactly. You need that little extra push over the edge. You can push the sport button, but it's just like alive in your hands in a way that modern cars aren't. And yet it still feels totally modern. That's why I think this is such a high water mark for cars in general. This version of the M 5 hit the market 23 years ago. A few sports sedans came before it, and many came after it. But it is widely accepted in the car community as the goat. The peak never bettered I know you're thinking, no way this can be true. Those of us who canonized it must just be nostalgic for the time it represented. A time of tamagotchis and beanie babies. Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys. Who wouldn't pine for those days? But just as Backstreet Boys become backstreet middle aged men, no car can remain at the peak for 20 years. If you look at the numbers, acceleration, breaking, road holding, cars don't peak, really. They keep getting faster, grippier, quieter, more comfortable, more reliable, better, better, better. They are quite literally vehicles of progress. Today's cars are digitally remastered to perfection, with all kinds of automated wizardry. All kinds of management software, and with all the flaws removed. Whereas pre millennial cars are mostly just straightforward mechanical parts. Straight up analog. By the sheer empirical evidence, like acceleration and fuel economy, the notion that the newer digital car is better than the old analog one, is manifestly true. And yet, here we are behind the wheel of a 2003 BMW M 5. And here I am with the claim that it's still almost 20 years later, the best sports sedan of all time. How can this be? How can a car that came out two decades ago still be the top of the mountain? On this episode of car show, we're going to try to answer that burning question. We'll put old versus new. The 2003 E 39 M 5 versus the 2022 M 5 competition. We are going to see if my assertion holds up or if I'm just nostalgic for that time I tread out to.

"Hey car lovers, we're shaking things up a bit, bringing you a preview of a new car podcast. We can't stop listening to. It's named rather aptly car show. It's hosted by Eddie alterman, a longtime editor at car and driver and the chief brand officer at her autos. Like past gas, it takes a look at how our favorite cars came to be and how they've impacted society. So if you love past gas, we're sure you're going to enjoy car show. So Eddie's thing is that he thinks all cars are great, even the truly awful ones. But some cars, he says, transcend their car Ness. Some cars are a rolling anthropology. On car show, Eddie tells the stories of the vital cars that have changed how we drive and live, the ones whose significance lies outside the scope of horsepower or miles per gallon. Cars like the Jeep Wrangler and why it's considered the most American car of all time and the Bugatti veyron and its quest to outrun gravity. In this preview, Eddie is joined by fellow car fanatic Malcolm gladwell to share an ode to the last great sports sedan. They take a ride to the winding roads of upstate New York and Malcolm silver, BMW M 5, praising its purity before automation and excessive trim went and ruined everything. Okay, here's the preview of car show. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. You can hear the full episode and more of car show wherever you get your podcasts. I'm super nervous driving your car. Oh, no, don't be. It's like, you know, it's funny. In my old golf R I felt it vulnerable. And in the same thing in the Kazakh CTS-V, I feel like I really feel like they're going to cover up any errors you make. Yeah. This card is a little hint of danger. I feel like you're a little bit on your own. You know, you know, they send you off and they say, you know, be well, my son..

So so we've avoided them and also an ultraman in particular the older alterman they didn't even have an arc to them of any kind. They were just like monster of the week. Beat him up off.

I'm like wait. This is different. They're actually trying to do the outer limits the the x. files they are obviously they're not trying to do the x. files but they're they're trying to do something a little bit different than than the ultraman story they're looking at the condition that causes these situations and so i said well then this is one we could actually do. Also it's only twenty some episodes long. Yep which is another big another big. Plus so that is that is why we are doing looking at ultra q Even though i didn't think whole heck of a lot of this episode also just ramble on here give for people who are inclined to like ultraman and ultraman does have a fan base here. But you know they've been making alterman since nineteen sixty seven ma every year but the last decade or so every year maybe twice a year every year and This is generally not available and a company. This is not a plug but this is a shoutout to mill creek. Entertainment has received the rights to purchase cpa to release all ultraman series on blu ray in in the us.

Very, lastly, I'll just quickly I, think this might be possibly the article with the most artists associated with it on rocks back pages with over forty artists and is Simon, Reynolds Guide to parody in popular music. So on a sort of funny, he goes Israel eight out of power from. Alberto. Lost three hours, Paranoia Zodiac mind and the love reaction. But he goes through and he talks about all these different forms of music party from nineteen sixty full right up to present day and seven hundred thousand words of the very first found I ever saw will but with the baron lights but from the circus and I think about. Sixty four and they will be very, very early party band. That's exactly what they did. I mean little deep young funding I mean even eight-year-old a ton. Shit. I suspect Simon, didn't choose the Barron Knights. No one of his executive. It's not good enough. It's a worthwhile piece to have a look for pitchfork and. FEMORAL Jasper of the names if you kinda fascinates it just a random selection I mean obviously the Bonzo dog by the dukes of stratosphere. Yes. Mothers of invention even if it's not just sort of niche stuff, it's it's a real mixture of very neat stuff. Mean but lights baronets now I'm sorry I'm sorry. Alvin. Stardust. Yes.

So They didn't quite know what to do with the team page. So they put me in the women in those days. Newspapers have women's sections. So I was in the women's section with women who were going to society tease wearing white gloves and stuff like that, and so all of a sudden this record promoter walks in the office unannounced this very bizarre looking robes it was the mothers of invention date was their first record I never heard of them. He was introducing them and there's all these people freaking out and Frank Zappa comes heads to me insists on my lap. I. Shit. What am I gonNa do what? I can a that was my introduction to the mothers of invention. Probably. Best. Thanks defy. You don't take them off to some society gathering with women and black gloves. Freak out was the name of that fast. Very. Yeah. Well, that's A. In costume and then I remained in touch with crank over the years and I remember visiting in when I was back in. New York and he lived in the village in Moon Unit was just born and he was so excited. You know they were so thrilled about the baby without that was a really sad loss I. Think Zappa I mean, he really was talented. Children changed their names back to something more Russia. I think you're right? Yeah. I think three. Eighty. I'm right.

I'll raise the tone again with a great review of Dangelo van God's Black Messiah. The album that Dangelo. Cut Out in twenty four t entry teen. This is in. Penman writing about it for the wire in two thousand fifteen. And is really interesting review because impediment is a huge fan of Jan, jlo's WHO's really split about this album I really rate the album, but he kind of thinks it's is caught between wanting to do something new and also being very revivalist and he makes interesting points about how Dan shows kind of stock. You'll find out more of the same stuff that made them found in the first place but better. So you find yourself having to do a better impersonation of yourself. The someone who by all accounts already have major hangups about his public persona you can imagine what? This might Ingende. and. I think it's a very interesting point about the nature of particularly when there was a big break. In time between one album and the next that it can cause. A problem for not on the one hundred suspect to do something even better but people just want one of the same. So your final for big fun. Yeah I should be not the reason is.

Was the last one he did but I, my favorite of his goose introduced me to him actually. Yeah. I mean. I duNNo. Again I I think he's symbolized the way certain songwriting methods of. Sort of evaporate p basic things too lazy to write a middle and they're he's he's. He's just like Jj Kobe's Choice the choice to jam together and they were just too lazy to get together just lives interesting 'cause penman kind of ends on the note of that he could be wrong about Black Messiah check back with me in time. So in I'm curious to hear if you still feel the same about this. Let us know. Just coal in Penman right now law..

"The Rain It's a joy to see on zoom today we're GonNa talk about your long career as a writer editor and producer will also be discussing Stevie Wonder Spencer Davis and a nine hundred ninety, five audio interview with Elvis. Costello. But why don't we start in Detroit were you ball or? Am I right in assuming porn in the motor city no no. I'm from New Jersey just like Bruce springsteen. Does ago a Jersey girl exactly no. I actually moved there because I was briefly married to a lawyer who got a job with a federal judge in Detroit and I had been working for a year after college at scholastic magazines which I don't think you have the mayor but they're magazines that go into schools. There's a junior scholastic senior scholastic et Cetera. So the Detroit free press just happened to be looking for a teen page editor because there was no. Internet, in those as an imagine, nine, nineteen, sixty five. So they wanted to reach a teenage audience to get them actually read the newspaper. So every Friday, we did a teen beat page. So 'cause I of the scholastic experience are. So anyway, it was supposed to be about you know local doings at schools why MCI that kind of thing, and then I, realized thanks to some record promoters that the way to reach kids was to have some features about rock music. This is nineteen, sixty five and it just so happened that it was the height of motown in Detroit. So it was like a very exciting scene there, and then there was the underground rock scene. There was the MC five in there. A lot of local groups, some of whom like Mitch Ryder and the Detroit wheels who made it nationally but. I actually. Was Not a rock fan I was always jazz fan when I was a teenager. I was different than the other children. So my actual first celebrity interview. When I was in college, I wanNA contest with seventeen magazine was with Dave Brubeck who was my idol And that was my first experience interviewing a celebrity so that that really set me off. I mean you say you want to come rock fan but you're very convincing writing about rock and roll in sixty, five, sixty, sixty, seven you know I think problem with a Lotta the writers at that time they were big fans and they weren't. I think to be a journalist you have to be a little. Removed in disinterested. I. Mean I got to like a lot of the music and musicians and all that more like I ll loved. Soul music closer to jazz I guess and folk music because of the poetry in the riding in all hard rock. Okay. But So I think you have to maintain a perspective when you're writing about this? Not not be a fan girl. So we're featuring three of your pieces from the Detroit free press to from the Detroit free press on the homepage. This weekend. Well, love is that one of them's with the MC five and one of them is with smokey Robinson space of about three or four months. So that's that's Detroit in a nutshell isn't it? Exactly? Exactly I mean motown I went to his full USA a lot a lot of the artists and I guess it's come full circle because now I'm a co-producer of the temptations musical on Broadway Broadway ever starts up again. This pandemic well I. Thought it was lovely. Does bring the story full circle ain't too proud. We will come to that but Yang. Company many people who actually saw these amazing officer close in you you went to the hits Ville studios interviewed pretty much I. Guess All of the the the motown roster with up to say I mean I I remember also there was a nightclub called the twenty grand in Detroit in a lot of those artists played there. So I would go there to see them in hang out. Until the riots of sixty seven happened in. The van of couse you're in this was I was air I actually wasn't there when the rise started I happened to be visiting my mother in New Jersey which I guess was lucky 'cause I live downtown and when I came back a few days later, there were tanks in the street and it was very scary. Yeah Yeah The NFC five. So cool the mood of of those times. I mean, this is this is great interview. February sixty seven. So long before we at least a year before kick out the jams, you're talking to them about Psychedelia and the that kind of funny crevices many young kids who come play the guitar very well, just turn up the volume and think that playing psychedelic. Is True. I've found what must be the first ever mentioned them in print you reporting on a student or school Passi I'm one of the bonds listed as playing this party and this is the year before the MC five. Dogs. Yet. I probably ran across him at one of these small clubs that was around the grand ballroom or whatever. The the clubs were the chess maiden different small clubs in the suburbs. But yeah, I mean it was it was also while I was in Detroit. Jimi Hendrix for the first. Time. We have three be paid. We do. Yeah. Yeah. I mean now was thrilling that was like Oh my God. What is this? This is really amazing. Fantastic something else. It's a fantastic piece. The other thing is that it gave me a clue west look feel stuff turns out the website newspapers dot com now have vast quantities of Detroit free press. Yes, and so I've been undermine it for just loads of your stuff. Oh, good. Yeah. Been It's been brilliant. Be No shortage of that. But as Hendrix piece was terrific. Yeah. an interview. The smoke is really really nice as well.

Vernon Lockhart: Art On the Loose
"All right. So tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Vernon Lockhart. I am a designer. I call myself a creative therapist. I am a exhibit designer, a brand developer interactive designer. Artist. and. I. Am the executive. Director of a program project called project as Moses out of Chicago. Now. One thing that I've been doing for everyone kind of just the start of these interviews during this pandemic kind of just doing a check in to see how folks are doing. So how are you holding up? You know we're given the space in times we're in we're I'm holding up pretty well I think one of the saving grace for me in a lot of this is. When you grow up on from the lane of saying boo as I grew up in a very rough area in Saint Louis and you know we faced adversity every day so. You know you have the coronavirus in things like that now. But for me growing up, you had to face all kinds of threats, potential adversaries so Well given the circumstances, I I commute back and forth caring for my mother who affectionately call a baby girl just can't for. So that's probably one of the key challenges but as far as. Things go we still have a lot of clients that we work with online and for project ASS? Moses alive things virtually with the students given the circumstances I'm I'm very grateful and feel very blessed to will be functioning at full capacity. What does a regular day look like for you now? So for me, a regular day would be getting up one thing that I don't have to do as much in. Okay. With this is not commuting back and forth so much. But getting up saying my prayers getting some breakfast getting on my laptop, looking at emails checking the circumference of the day clients. Immediate needs doing those usually that takes me up until about mid day I usually try to schedule any meetings I have around thirty two noon referee and then any errands I have to run out of usually do air early evening I'm a southern boy living in a city. CHICAGO. So I still have a yard and in a house and things like that. So you I'm out cutting. And things like that towards the evening. So I would call it a pretty normal southern boy day usually my average day but I'm a businessman at the same time. So you know it's a balance between the two but that's an advocate from. So speaking up about business you have a design firm called art on the loose is that right? That's correct. Tell me about it. When did you first start that? So are Donna loose very interesting. We been in operation. Now for about twenty three years I started in the late nineteen I'd say about ninety six and tonight six roughly. And we I was actually working at northwestern university in their at their center for Public Safety Division and we will working on a lot of. Copro shears and things like that in. So it was kind of mundane just no adventure knitted all in myself in one of. Colleagues that I work with addicts Ner we had conversation as I wonder do more I want to be free. I would have some creative freedom here in we started talking about doing our own design work. And in our conversation start playing with name ideas in that I mentioned you know I wanna be free I want to be loose in a good way right as a heart let's let's and so we kinda because we were both artist and he says so let's just call the artem loose in. That's how the name was born in banding Hannah came from this whole Superhero Ultra N-. Staying that I was called as a key going up still combat to this day and so we use kind of empowering. The word artem lose but also with the whole color Palettes, we used our background is how we grew up to create the the business name and I have to just this quick story about ultraman lousy key kids were were calling me ultra because my it was pointed they call me the football hero Alterman. I was like you know and I came home from school I'm I'm one of ten kids, right so I came home from school that I was upset and I start crying to my mother baby girl and I told her what the key is will call him the main she say at wait a minute isn't all tremendous food bureau SABA come home from school to watch ultraman every. Day, and she said I thought he was a superhero say he is. He says we'll take that negative and make it a positive and so I literally went up to my room and start designing year Alterman on and I, went back to school they pop my collar and was like they were like ultimate success right on alternate and so at three sixty beds. So it started all Japan. And took that negative in Medan deposited but also is one of my personal experiences and Brandy. In power of branding, and so I took that icon and symbol. Even. If you look on our business site, you'll see that iconic symbol for for ultra mass I knew. To this day in and I got my design in artistry from my mother, my mother went to design marks.

A Song For Peace
"This is the story of a song that is in a way the story of this country in the spring of Nineteen, sixty-nine at a sidewalk cafe on Richmond Street tucked in from the corner of Dizengoff. Street in Tel Aviv a twenty four year old poet named Yakov or Janka wrote Blit met a twenty five year old musician and arranger named yet year Rosenbloom and the two men became friends the cafe was called California and the. Place, itself said something about the people who made a habit of spending their days especially, their long nights there. The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat. It had been in operation since nineteen, thirty five, and since then it was the place where you can find some of Jewish palestines and then Israel's greatest poets and writers. On Alterman and Lebron's Sean Ski. Lay. Goldberg. Alexander Penn great writers who had been young and who grew old drinking coffee in the afternoon and vodka in Iraq at night at the simple spare tables of cassette alongside these luminaries in the nineteen sixties. New Generation staked claims at the table, the actor or.

Then that had lived a good deal of life. Netanyahu was born in nineteen twenty seven in the southwest corner of what is now Iran in a place called Abedin on the Persian Gulf just. Across the border from Bosra not far from Kuwait at six he was sent to board at Saint. Mary's a Jesuit School in Mumbai where you had an aunt, his parents abandoned. Persia.

"Talking to you I love exploring life especially this we don't have Alterman issues education any longer with Sir very it's for it's it's one way of summarizing one of the great crises of our country those of those of us who had the traditional religious educations were steeped in ultimate issues education what is good and evil is the we have a soul what happens after death why are we here what are we supposed to do the these are the great questions and if they are much greater than carbon emissions and plastic in the ocean I'm not saying that those are not issues I'm saying that there are incomparably insignificant compared to the great issues hello you'll save up because you feel of carbon emissions presented existential threat to to biological life I don't today's ultimate issue is part of a series that I've been engage them for years Klay I will take a verse from the Bible that is it causes people who hate the Bible in there or millions and millions of them just look at the look at the comments of hatred and ridicule or mockery of any of the preview videos that are thought to our site the Bible positively it was astonishing thing to have gone to generations from veneration of the Bible in America to degradation of the Bible in America and the results are all there for you to see including fecal matter in the San Francisco street so here's the verse okay with you in a few translations then the new King James version people always ask me my favorite version like totally understand why they would I'm involved deep in the Bible commentary but I don't know if I have one it's like my favorite cigar I don't have a favorite cigar unlike a lot of them anyway here is of the the new King James version he who spares his rod eight system but he who loves him disciplines him promptly King James from the seventeenth century the famous King James translation he that spare with his rod Hey fifth his son but he that loveth him chasing with him the times the times is gone we don't use but times anymore what's the new English version new international version whoever spares the wrought hates their children but the one who loves their children as careful as careful to discipline them all right anyway the entity in people people have summarized the sentence with spare the rod spoil the child they're just not in not inaccurate but it's not the sentence so that's the sentence I agree with it now what let me say something having a bit involved in Bible commentary and study my whole life this this can be a literal and is not necessarily literal he who spares the Rog he who loves his child does not spare the rod but rather the the discipline their children see it see it says whoever spares the rod hates their chill at trial but the one who loves their child is careful to discipline him right so it it it out I can't tell you something simply by logic it's not necessarily literal because if it were literally would be whoever spares the rod hates his child whoever loves his child uses the rod right hits him that would make sense correct that would make the set this balanced so is it it's a figure of speech it can be literal I am not all right I do not shy away from a literal translations and and meanings fact I actually rely on them but it is clear from the sentence that the issue was disappointing not that every time your child is wrong you hit him with the raw get it he who spares the rod spoils his child Bob hates their church hates their children that's the interesting part it's not spoils their child it's that it's that the you don't love your child if you don't discipline your child you don't love your child see this is what I mean by wisdom everybody you know people there's an old saying kids don't come out with an instruction manual well they don't but adults of written instruction manuals summer stupid summer mix summer Weiss this is why he's this to put your child if you love them you don't if you if you don't discipline your child you don't love them that's a very powerful statement because they're people spoil their children who think they love them but the issue isn't here emotion that the Bible's not interested in your emotions if you if you really love your child you will do what is best for them best for them is to discipline them if it's late is not is not saying all if you don't hit your child with the rod you don't love your child I'm I'm I'm not trying to change the text I'm simply trying to be honest through it that's the way I believe life works disciplining your child now there are some kids who don't need a lot of discipline admit it but it basically most kids do and they're better human beings for the discipline that you have engaged him in the raising of them eight seven seven two four three triple seven six one eight Praeger seven seven six so many people know kids who've been spoiled I think that the a big part of the American problem serious American problem is that my generation the baby boomers were spoiled I wasn't not at all of us were and I certainly wasn't I was brought up in a sort of quite a quite disciplined home and sometimes excessively so although I was only spring once respect we were we deliver a corporately punished what what exactly with the duty or who which parent it's always on who is always your mother spike you when your rear yeah your bare rear or covered rare right see our arm against bear rare that the that's humiliating I am totally opposed to humiliating trial but I may you turn out to be a truly good person and I'm

U. general court overturn an order from the European Commission that it pay a record fourteen billion dollars in back taxes to Ireland Bloomberg three today reports from Luxembourg apple is coming face to face with the European regulators on the biggest tax case and the world right now the company has appealed a thirteen billion euro fine that was dictated by the European Commission in twenty sixteen and now the idea behind as according to the Europeans as the apple received special tax treatment from the Irish government which allowed the company to pay artificially low taxes apple says this was not the case and has appealed that decision and if you were hoping to get a sorry moment from the company that was certainly not the case here apple said it is the company that pays the most tax and the world they actually claim to the decision from the Europeans lacked any logic or sands and they also believe the numbers here were tweet in a way that presented apple and a bad light in front of the public opinion essentially goal was to portray the company is paying almost no taxes when you look at the European sides to the store they'll tell you they still believe their right to the still believe it's pretty obvious by now that apple has sent out a tax structure and Europe to pay the least amount possible and they do believe that if the arguments are validated and their vindicated by the court they can continue to get tough on American tech companies to make them pay more in Europe of course this tax cases happening as tensions continue to play out between the United States of America and Europe over big American tag the president of the United States of America Donald Trump has that many times this is only happening because the Europeans simply cannot compete on the innovation so they copied on the taxation when it. comes to the E. U. they denied this is the case they just want everyone to pay their fair share and Luxembourg Maria today Bloomberg news. and for more on apple's talks is viewed in the E. U. I'm joined now by ten by Herron president of creative strategies as an analyst he has covered the field of personal computers and consumer technology since nineteen eighty one and has served as a consultant to companies like apple IBM and Microsoft to teams are give me your thoughts on this case and what do you think of the fact that apple is set for the biggest tax care in the world. well it from a from an actual number standpoint they probably are apple also was one of the. just in the sense of their overall market a market value and the amount of money they bring in every year but to understand this case you've got to go back a little bit to the beginning where apple actually. did this deal as a part of a partnership with the Irish government back in nineteen eighty eight eighty nine when the Irish government was very concerned about what they called the brain drain they were they were literally graduating hundreds of engineering students and and and business students but they were not enough jobs in Ireland to to fill the needs or to to to fill the job for these kids so they went to Europe the ticket to Germany and France in the U. K. and even in the U. S. and the government was quite concerned that it did the only way they were going to be able to get a lot of these kids kids to stay in was to lower or to bring other companies especially tech companies into Ireland and create jobs over this time apple his demeanor built up over six thousand jobs over there and he's contributed greatly to the Irish Irish economy and so forth so that original tax structure was based on those breaks to bring apple in and that was what basically they continue to do until about twenty fifteen so ten like you said negotiating in good faith and now have something that some of that potentially over first on them what does that mean then for apple in future dealings with Ireland with the E. U.. well that's the part of the problem in this way I believe apple and other companies tech companies who could could be in the cross hairs here are going to fight this because number one what do you what do you did is they changed the laws and they changed the rules in twenty twenty ten and they're now. fine tuning them around this to try to go back and take these data to apply this tax structure and. think of yourself as an American company if you win a hand with a series of agreements and then all of a sudden the agreements got changed in over seventy years later that puts you off if I'm an American company I would be really concerned about investing in Europe and that's why if the these American companies who really are looking at trying to expand into Europe because it's great for distribution is great first customer service etcetera. at this point it's it's a very bad precedent. yeah ten any thoughts on what companies could really start to feel the ripple effects if this does go throw. I'm sorry repeat that. what companies would be next in terms of filling the rebel a fax if this fight does continue between apple in the email. well at this stage of the game it's a little unclear moon but there are other companies including H. P. Microsoft others who might want to do better X. more expansions that's not exactly clear but I know from talking to the the companies a lot of different companies here they're watching this particular case in year very closely because it will be factored into whether they actually do expand into Europe in the future. well I'm just saying like he said perhaps even not concerned about that at least from this a lawsuits perspective that was tame the hair and president of creative strategies thank you for joining me and coming out more.

Once A Regional Stabilizer, Saudi Arabia Becomes A Disrupter

Get started today by visiting jet dot com or downloading the jet app. Now for generations, Saudi Arabia's monarchs have based their rule on tradition and caution and above. All stability, crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman represents a break from that and his actions have some wondering whether Saudi Arabia may be destabilizing the Gulf region. Here's NPR national security correspondent Greg Mary. The old Saudi Arabia was a place. The United States often turn to in times of turbulence. When oil prices were spiking or political tensions were spiraling out of control. The new Saudi Arabia under crown prince. Mohammad bin Salman is now a key actor and sometimes an instigator in some of the region's most combustible events, Mohammed bin Salman as. Straighted recklessness and impulsiveness in decision making that has been very costly to the kingdom. That's Bruce ridell of the Brookings Institution who keeps a close watch on the kingdom. The crown prince is just thirty three. He rose to prominence three years ago when his father king Salman. Now AJ to became the most recent of seven brothers to take the Saudi throne since then the Saudis have embarked on a war in Yemen. They've blockaded their neighbor Qatar, and now they're under intense scrutiny for the disappearance and apparent death of journalist, Jamal kashogi. I think that the difference between Mohammed bin soman and and his uncles who ruled Saudi Arabia previously is that he might not have a sense of the limits of Saudi power. That's Gregory GAAS, a professor at Texas AM in an expert on Saudi Arabia. He says these episodes raise questions about the crown prince's judgment. He. Doesn't appreciate the the second and third order consequences and risks of some of these actions that he's taken the Warren Yemen where the US supports the Saudis. It's become a military stalemate and humanitarian. Catastrophe, the US Saudi relationship which dates to World War Two has often been bumpy you. Saudi relationship has always been about interested in non values. So says Jon Alterman of the center for strategic and international studies. Those interests include stability in world. Oil markets countering and expansive Iran, and keeping the Gulf comb. US presidents have come to understand by the end of their term that a lot of things in the Middle East and around the world are much easier to do with the Saudis on board and much more difficult if the Saudis are fighting you. This battle with Iran for preeminence in the region, Dr Saudi policy. But before Muhammad, the Saudis rely. Lied more on diplomacy and their financial clout. The crown prince has a more confrontational approach. Says Gregory gauze. He sees a Ron throwing its weight around in the region, and I think he, he says, why can't? Why can't Saudi Arabia do that? Well, I think that that Saudi Arabia hasn't been able to do it successfully. Donald Trump made his first foreign trip as president to Saudi Arabia, and he's a staunch supporter of the kingdom. This may have encouraged the Saudis to be more aggressive, but the international outcry over the disappearance of Jamal kashogi may change the equation says, Bruce ridell. The kashogi affair has now really raised a Pandora's box for the administration. The congress and the American media are not going to let the kashogi fair just go away as Mohammed bin Salman continues to disrupt the status quo. His critics are growing Greg, Mary NPR news, Washington support for NPR.
