How the Pandemic is Imperiling Retirement
"That much. How much have average? Americans saved while TRANSAMERICA survey released in May provided estimated median retirement savings according to generation so for millennials, the median savings is twenty three thousand Gen X.. The median savings is sixty four thousand for the boomers. Median savings is one hundred and forty four thousand. and. That doesn't sound like very much, but here's the kicker. Those figures are as of the end of two thousand nineteen before the virus crisis turned the world upside down, so thanks to the pandemic panic. Many investors actually have less now. But possible lower portfolio value is just one way that retirement planning is more challenging. After one of the most sudden economic disruptions in history. In fact, there are five ways that America's overall retirement security has become even more imperilled over the past few months. Let's take a look at each one showy. Let's start with number one let's. CHECK REPLACE TO START? So number one. We all know this one. We actually know all these, but here we go number. One unemployment has skyrocketed over the past fifteen weeks. Almost fifty million Americans have filed for unemployment insurance. It's almost. Incomprehensible fortunately, many have gone back to work so last Thursday, the Labor Department announced that the unemployment rate dropped to eleven point two percent in June down from thirteen point three percent percent in May. So that's good news. However that eleven point two percent is still the highest rate since one thousand, nine, hundred forty. Now. When you lose your job, you obviously tend to stop saving for retirement. You have more important things. Take Care of plus you no longer have access to a 401k and people who have access to retirement plan at work are much more likely to say. But, even those who have jobs still are not saving as much because many workers have seen their pay cut and have reduced their savings as a consequence in many employers have reduced or eliminated their 401k matches, and finally a survey from bankrate found that fourteen percent of Americans have taken money from their retirement accounts during the crisis and another thirteen percent planned to do so many because the need the money due to losing their jobs. So. Many people are going to have much less saved for retirement. Just looking at the IRA's and 401k's let we just talk on the show about how people? Are actually saving more. So. It seems like this is another opportunity to just even more create even more of a divide between those who have a lot of money, and those who are just scraping by. There's no question so what you're talking about is the personal savings rate, which is a little different than what you save in your retirement accounts. Basically it was. It was a combination of. Looking at what people had their bank accounts for the people who lost their jobs for many people. In fact, most of those people unemployment benefits were actually higher. Than when they were working. And they weren't spending as much money, so you really look at what happened to people's bank accounts, but even those situations right? Let's say you're out of a job and your unemployment. Benefits are higher than when you were working. You're still not likely then. Put that money in an IRA when you can't put an 401K's. You're no longer working so despite the fact that some of these people. People actually up to now doing okay, they're probably not putting it towards the retirement savings, and they're possibly looking towards the end of July when the extra six hundred dollars from the federal government is going to stop their talk now about extending that probably not six hundred, maybe like three hundred or something like that. I certainly hope that will happen because if you ask me, I think. The gains we saw in jobs in last month I. Think some of those are going to go away. As some of the economy, especially, the south and the West start to realize that maybe they opened up a little too soon, and they're gonNA start shutting down. The? First one second reason why retirement planning is going to get more challenging is that many stocks are still down. So. Now. We're going to look at what's in all these accounts that we just talked about. Depending on the type of stocks you own this and this year. Surprisingly they could be very good for you. Especially, many of the Motley fool members to our services invested a lot of companies that have done very well, but for many other people. Your portfolio still could be in the red, so let's take a look at where some of the indexes are as of the close of the market on July Second Nasdaq star of the year up fourteen percent so far this year amazing. Every other index down even slightly so sap five hundred down three percent for the year the Dow and international stocks down about ten percent for the year small caps down fourteen percent value stocks getting. Still significantly down almost twenty percent partially, because when you look at a typical value index fund, they're more weighted towards energy and financial services which have been the two worst performing sectors this year. We all knew about energy, but even if you look at the banking stocks, banking stocks have taken a hit the federal reserved it. It's stress test. Last month told banks that can no longer buy these. The biggest banks of thirty biggest banks told him you can't buy back your shares, so you can't do any share buybacks now, and you can only pay your dividend according to a formula based on earnings. If you don't have enough earnings, you can't pay your dividends so. Bank stocks have been put on notice that things could get dicey there so again. Depending on how you've invested,

Supreme Court Allows Federal Executions to Proceed in Washington, DC
"Have been a number of the people on federal death row who have been involved in a lawsuit challenging the lethal injection protocol, so the method and the drugs used for lethal injections, which has the form of execution in that the federal government will use to carry. Carry these out so for a number of years that lethal injection those direction lawsuits have been under consideration by federal judges in Washington DC and the most recent judge who had an opportunity to examine the record on those decided that there should be no executions moving forward. Unfortunately, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals reversed her decision, and so at this point, there are a lot of questions concerning the safety of the drug used the method that they're planning to use a single drug. Now. Instead of a cocktail had been used in previous executions, and there have been botched executions at the state level, and so there are still major concerns about. The safety of the drug and obviously when we talk about safety, people might be thinking well. What are you talking about? The person's going to be killed with it. So why does it need to be safe? But the eighth amendment. Prohibits cruelty in the carrying out of a sentence. Now some of US believe that killing somebody is a cruel and unusual punishment in and of itself, but even if you don't hold that belief I think many people would agree that even if you're going to execute somebody, you don't want them to be tortured. As they are meeting their death, and unfortunately some of these botched executions witnesses who have attended them have described very disturbing physical reactions that appear to suggest that the people who are being executed are in great pain, excruciating pain and unable to express themselves verbally while the executions being carried out, so that's why the Federal Court had been permitting hearings and testimony and evidence on the issues related to the the method of the execution.
Oysters, Clambakes and Grilling Run Amok
"Omar welcome to milk street. Thank you, thank you for having me It's great to have you Let's talk about your popup dinners. A called honeysuckle. Could you just describe what you serve and what the pop ups are like? The honeysuckle. It's a concept that uses food as the nucleus to explore various ideas of nuances of blackness in America specifically. And I say America specifically because. Black people in this country have. Quite quite quite the hurdle in our search identity in that many of us can't trace back our heritage. More than two grandparents ago and what a what tends to happen at least in my experience as a bike person, this country is that. People will ask me. Hey, where are you from? What is your nationality? But if I tell them that I'm just a black person, from Philadelphia, and that I'm American. That's kind of where the conversation stops. You know Africans and West Indians have a heritage. They have a flag Michael. tweet talks a lot about having a flag and his book, the cooking teen and having a flag like if you point towards the flag of Jamaica. What do you think of food? Wise? You think of oxtail. You think of rice and peas when you tell someone that you're an African American, most people only ever associate that with pain and then stereotypes. Under the American flag. So honeysuckle to me is. ME. Generating a flag for myself. It's not it's not just pain. Pain is pain as always there, but there were plenty of joys as well. You write poetry and you were to poem. Call folger's which. I of read fifteen times since I. So, could you just read that? Because I I'm not gonNA. Read your poem. You're GonNa have to read your. Sure folders soldiers is is one of my favorite ones I don't write love. poems often, but. Can we have coffee. I mean like really. Can we put down our words and swallow our breasts and hints of Cocoa Cinnamon and clove. Can I stare into your Brown eyes while the do of God washes over your face by our window next to the lips. Disturbs spoons course in our hearts, just black. Don't sugar neither. Only you and silk from Madrid to toews. FRIZZ, baby hairs and a t shirt. That now belongs to us. Can we have it until it's done.

And people who are in a relationship, the person that you love is the best part of Waking Up. When you when you wake up and you, you see that person next to you. and so in this in this poem, the car the coffee the STIMULI IS IS PARTNER You've had a very successful career. You ended up doing these pop ups. Something really believed in now. You're essentially back home. In Philadelphia you say there isn't much in my room, but a mattress leaning Bookshelf Eucalyptus plant that I found in a public flowerpot. It's Blue Gray and brings joy when the days are down so. What happens next you know? I, wrote the and I know soundly somber I think. The the communist comes from everything coming to a screeching halt, it was huge full. Stop at around March fifteenth when when I moved to Philadelphia, but all the. Things that I was doing prior to this pandemic. Was All leading me back to Philadelphia, and so I'm I'm in the place where I'm supposed to be. What's next is what I WANNA do is open. honeysuckle here the art that I do create. Speaks to the African American community and I would like to spread that over several different. Avenues such as a grocer, a coffee space, and still do dinners, but have it be a community center. The idea in the past was to open honeysuckle downtown, but What I want to do now is bring down to hood like that's. I would love to see the economy spread outward into into the pockets of those who need it. If you look forward five or ten years. In take a best case scenario. What would you like to see happen as a result of what we're going through now? What would be the best case for you? In terms of community or the way people think about food and culture. Restaurants were never about food. And I think that people. Don't understand that restaurants were always about people people I that needed food. So if we can. Start looking at that again. Everything else will fall into
Why Do Ladybugs Have Spots? Do Dragonflies Bite?
"This week, we're getting out our bug nets to look at something considerably smaller than us. We're talking about dragonflies and ladybugs. And we're going to be joined by someone. We've talked to before on an episode. We did about moths. I'm kept McFarland with a Remote Center Frigo Studies Research Biologist and I like to study insects and all kinds of other flying things. Why in the world do you like to study insects of all the creatures you could study? Well you know. I've studied birds and I've studied mammals, but insects to in my world. Everything you can think of. That's in the movies insects do it. They do strange things that we'd never imagined possible, and and it just excites me to go out there and find out what they're doing. Strange things like what lift something that would be like US lifting a car or leap tall buildings that kind of thing. Yeah. They're like the Superman the animal world, they can do all of things that we couldn't dream of Fahd of the sky for hundreds of feet. Fly Long distances. Long distances like three thousand mile sometimes longer than we never imagined swim underwater for long periods of time. I mean you name it. They do it so. The water and walk on the ceilings. Yeah, so it's just crazy things they do. There are so many kinds of insects estimates range between two million and thirty million different types of insects. If you count up the total number of these animals themselves, scientists think there are ten Quintillo individual insects on our planet. But we can't do an episode about all of them. Just think how long that would be. We're going to focus on to cool types of insects. You have sent us questions about dragonflies and ladybugs, but even those are categories of insects with lots of different species within them, as we'll find out more about later, but first. Let's dive into some of your questions. My Name's illegal. I live in Seattle Washington in my question is. Why do ladybugs have spots? Claire. I am six years old. I live in rent. Would Missouri and My question is how do ladybugs get their spots I Aria that result I live grateful or Kaleida it by question is how to ladybugs have spots well. Here's the interesting thing about ladybugs. There's a lot of different kinds of ladybugs and the ones that we usually think of are the ones that are red with black spots or sometimes a little white spots on them. And that represents maybe you. A quarter of the species of ladybugs, there's a whole bunch of other ladybugs that are black, Brown, red white, even some kind of other colors mixed in like yellows, and so the traditional thing we think of the ladybugs of the ones that are black and red, but there's all kinds of others that have all kinds of other patterns and colors associated with them how they get their spots. I'm not really sure how they exactly get their spouse, but one of the things is spots. Spots are the patterns are probably on them, so that is a warning to other insects or even birds that they might not want to eat them, because they might taste poorly, and so it's a way to defend themselves against being eaten by birds or other insects to some types of ladybugs have a certain number of spots and others have a different number, or could you know the same kind of lady bug lined up ten different individual bugs. You'd get ten different spot patterns. The answer is yes. It happens, both so there are lady bugs that have certain number of spots in evac through even named after that, so there's a native lady bug in North America called. The nine spotted lady bug, and it has nine actually, and there's the seven spotted lady bug, and it usually has seven spots. There's a twenty spotted lady bug, and you get the picture. There's different kinds of ladybugs that have different amount of spots, but sometimes within those groups they can have a variety of spots, so there's one. One kind of Lady Bug comes from Asia called the Asian ladybugs that's been introduced. It's been brought here in an outlives. North America and sometimes it can have almost no spots, and sometimes it can have maybe a dozen or more spots on it, so it's really variable. Compared to say, the nine spotted lady bug, which almost always has nine spots, and we have listeners and I think every continent. EXCEPT ANTARCTICA, we haven't gotten a question from Antarctica and do ladybugs also live on every continent except Antarctica. I'm pretty sure they are on every continent, except Antarctica. Yes, and that brings us to this question. Hello, my name is Hallelujah I live in. Rwanda CA golly. My question is. How many different types of ladybugs are there? There are over five thousand different species or types of ladybugs in the world. And as Kent said, it's not just the spots that vary, their colors can vary, too, but those colors are basically always there to warn predators that the lady bug will taste terrible now. Some of you are probably wondering why they're called ladybugs. Anyway or maybe you aren't even sure what insect were actually talking about. Not everyone calls them ladybugs for example. If you live in the United Kingdom you might call them, lady, birds or Ladybird Beetles and Kent says he actually doesn't like the name Lady Bug because they're Beatles, not bugs, so that's right now and they're not all ladies.
Patchwork Junkie with Kyle Dean Houston
"Hello everyone welcome to the addicted mind podcast, my guest today is Kyle Anderson author of Patchwork, Junkie and Kyle. Why don't you introduce yourself? -Ture Brown first of all I just want to thank you, this is. It's always great. People do their best to give a platform for conversations like this, so I really appreciate, it's connected to you and your audience just really quickly first and foremost I, my husband, a father and proud of both of those things I'm also a sales executive and a coach and a spear as well as an author and spach were. Yeah, thank you so much for coming on. And we were just talking earlier about being DADS and and fatherhood, and the beauty that comes with that so I'm excited to hear about your story. And why don't we just start at the beginning? How how did this all start? And then we'll get to how you ended up writing the book, but tell me a little bit about the beginning sure. I'm assuming you don't WanNa know that was born in the seventies or any of that stuff, so we'll just start with the addiction. We'll just leap into it if you don't mind. Yeah Yeah, so, what ended up happening I was a young entrepreneur in Missouri Twenty, four twenty five years old, and I had my own carpet store and some strange fate I got addicted to meth amphetamine in a very short period of my life I started using needles. The only way I'm ever going to quit. I mean I just spiraled into a deep depression and was convinced the only way I was ever going to get sober was an overdose and I tried my best had. I ended up teaching myself how to Cook Meth as an act of survival, and ended up becoming one of the biggest meth cooks Kansas City in the early nineties, instead of having an overdose I got arrested was facing. Thirty years of my life ended up in a cell by myself for twenty three hours a day for almost a year. I'm going to read this story tremendously, but ended up getting a nine year sentence from that, and then when I went off to do my nine years when I was about to get ruled out, ended up, getting indicted by the fans and I was facing life, so a lot of this is in the book. Don't want to ruin any of the story. Then ended up doing seven years by the grace of God it. A total of seven years behind bars walked at the age of thirty five scared to death, no college degree, no network I'd never even sent an email and I went from a ten dollar an hour employee at a call center I was the guy that used to call up. Issue to take a brief clip for your to your engine on your verizon, but went from that to a decade later, becoming a vice president cited two billion dollars of trade. And Bat Artemije story is very complex and difficult side lights. That's it in a very small concise nutshell, so really going through all of it right right from the very beginning to finding a place for yourself. That feels right at at the end. And you are able to to find your way well. I think just like everybody. The answer's Yes. Of course it is, it's a it's a glorious story right living. It was not as fun as failing it I promise you, but the baggage not so obvious. Is that ten years that I spent? Climbing. The ladder of Gordon America was ten years, shame ills and fear that I would wish on anybody so my story with the exception of my beautiful wife, and all of the great things that happened in those in years, but romy. My story really starts when I. Sit down the right book, which was a couple of years ago. Because that's when I let go of the. The baggage that's when I started the healing process as when I stopped white, knuckling everything in life

Do Brill's for Classic Summer Barbecue. We take a look inside that most mysterious of meets the hotdog. What's inside is the stuff of legend, but when it comes to one in particular, the one sold at Nathan's famous, it's got a lot to do with America underdogs and huckster international rivalries and good old fashioned American dreams the good, the bad and the ugly of this country stuff through me grinder organs and all. Today producer Julia press checks out the hot dog stand and the country that she did. Stay with us. Each fourth of July, as fireworks light up the night sky, red, white and blue flags fly overhead Americans scarf down hotdogs, one hundred and fifty million of them to be exact. That's if you take the national hot dog and Sausage Council at its word, but like most American traditions. In fact like America itself, the hot dog is what it is because of immigrants, and it really made its name. Thanks to one man in particular. Here's producer Julia Press. Nathan's famous hot dogs was started by one Guy Nathan hand worker. He's not alive anymore, so I spoke to his grandson. My grandfather had no schooling whatsoever. You didn't spend one day in his life. In a school Lloyd hand worker has made a documentary and a book about Nathan's famous and the story of the guy who started. Mazen, hand worker was. Extremely poor immigrant from Poland who lived the American dream? He was one of thirteen kids. They were extremely poor. To add. When he was growing up. Only you know how to add two plus two Nathan. Story is about as classic as they come as a kid back in Poland. He'd worked in a bakery for a couple of years and he'd learned that food service jobs were pretty smart. Move if you didn't WANNA. Go hungry so when he arrived in New York in nineteen twelve. Is this right and nineteen year old? He Got A. A job as a dishwasher at a restaurant in the city called Max's busy, he learn English and maxes by repeating what the customer said, basically just hearing what they said, and just trying to repeat it without even knowing what it meant soon, he started working weekends as a role slicer at a place called Feldman's this enormous restaurant on the coney island boardwalk, even back then coney island was the sort of urban escape. For the cost of just a subway ride, immigrants could get away from the tenements of the industrializing city and find themselves at a beach, an amusement parks. Many of them set up small businesses. They're hoping to make it big. Dog Is an immigrant foot, right? Immigrants sold lamb grits. Bruce Crag is an emeritus Professor at Roosevelt University who specializes in food history in particular, the history of the Hotdog, the earliest written evidence we have for his from New York Cody.

"Today we had the honor to talk to Nana Xanthi. She is an attorney and the executive director of the Black Alliance for justice immigration or. She's also the founder of the Community Legal Clinic and Transform Justice Center in legal these workshops as well as the founder of Justice Warriors Black Lives I. Hope you enjoy this conversation. Nana how are you today? I am well well, as can be expected in during these times and hoping you're well as well you know I am well despite everything, but one of the reasons that I'm grateful is because of the great work that women like you do in this country so excited to talk about the Black Alliance for just immigration, which is one of the organizations that the BG and wonder me a network which produces the BG podcast has been encouraging our audiences to support, so thank you. These organizations are critical in times like this. Thank you so very much? We appreciate that support and the support that we've gotten from black folks all over the globe. Appreciate it. Tell us a little bit more about the Black Alliance for just immigration, and what brought you to the organization? So the black lines for just immigration is a national black lead Immigration Rights Human Rights Racial Justice Organization. We are the largest of our kind in the United States. We educate we advocate. We organized on behalf of the. The roughly ten million Black Refugee and immigrant families in this country as well as black folks who are trying to come into the country, whether it be permanently or temporarily, and those who are seeking asylum. We have our headquarters in New York, but we also have offices in DC. Miami Atlanta Los Angeles and Oakland and we have staff in Houston, and in Minneapolis, so we pretty much are all over the place as well as doing work on the. Episode of the border in Mexico, at the northern border with Tijuana, and also we've been doing some work the southern border of Mexico in Chula where you have black asylum seekers coming to the United States through Mexico. In that way and the work that we do is national in many cases in terms of policy, and you know we've been very busy in that regard, especially in with this administration, we also do national work with respect to racial justice our. Former executive director open committee was one of the big three that started black lives matter, and so by has been involved in black lives matter since the beginning and we do that work, and then we also do local work regional work. I'm both on the policy side, but as well as more, and with even more vigor on the organizing side to make sure that we are pushing for racial. Economic and social justice with an right alongside our multigenerational African American siblings. So much work, such powerful work. As. You said you've been very busy with this administration echo, they're just keeping everyone busy with their foolishness, but I definitely do a suit top about Daca so for our listeners, who may not be familiar Dhaka's stands for deferred action for childhood arrivals and the Supreme. Court decision around Dhaka now allows immigrants who ever see Daca status sometimes referred to as dreamers so if you seen the Hashtag is sandwiched dreamers. That's what that means. It allows them. them to stay in the country safely without a threat of deportation, but one the things that we've been really seeing missing from mainstream conversation over Daca was that it also impacts not Hispanic and Latino communities that there are black and brown communities impacted by this as well other black communities that are impacted by this as well. So, what was your reaction when you hurt the decision? And what are our next steps in the Dreamer, movement so? It is really important in think I really WanNa, thank you for lifting up the fact that yes, there are dreamers who are not Brown folks. That are not Latin next folks. That are not black right that we have black Latino next folks as well as black dreamers from the continent of Africa from the Caribbean from Europe right we think about. Twenty, one savage right and how this came up? And he actually falls in the category that is equally as important that we need to advocate for a person who isn't a Dhaka recipient, but who happens to be undocumented, and obviously we're looking for permanent protections, not just for Dr Recipients because everyone. Coming to this country is dreaming. No one's coming to this country to be a nightmare. Faces are looking at the Supreme Court decision. I also happen to be an attorney of twenty six years. Doing movement work is it's a temporary relief. It is not the permanent protection that we want our people to have and that our people need to have in order to thrive, basically what the Supreme Court said is that the way that the administration got rid of Dhaka? Had No basis. They got rid of it that they have to have a reason. They have to show that they've thought about everything before. They come to that conclusion and they did not. And so, what does that mean? It means that just like the Muslim ban if you remember, the court ruled against the Supreme Court ruled against the administration on the Muslim ban, and said he pointed out what was wrong and. And so they just instituted a new Muslim bad adjusting themselves to what the court had pointed out, and that Muslim ban remains not struck down,

You can raise some kind of doing race review coming into this weekend looking back to twenty eighteen. I've forgotten how much better it was versus.

"An eventful field playoff awesome chase Elliott traffic all and they come back and win an just a really really good place. Yeah it really was so many different stories is and these races. I mean just when you thought you knew who had the momentum and what might happen in a race something totally different would happen. I know that true had a lot in raising danny dominated at Phoenix but still there were compelling stories throughout the racist and some drivers that made the playoffs. Kyle Larson got back to Victory Lane. You mentioned Chase Elliott Elliot Ryan Blaney. So some guys that you know we talk about the big names. Well some of the guys that maybe we didn't have going to victory lane prove they deserve to be in the playoffs by winning advancing dancing. Yeah perhaps the move of the play. Offs is somebody who is a lot of people. Don't know their name Caitlyn Larson. She Victory Lane. She brought a whole `nother level level down to the bare victory lane. Carl said he couldn't do it but she could so I love this because she is a racer. She comes from a racing family. She appreciates being in Victory Lane. And why we're here to have fun right well that's JP Kyle Larson's PR man in the blue there. And I was saying that he spilled more and took longer than Caitlyn license. So she's even the All star of that duo right there absolutely. I think she gained a whole another set of fans for Kyle Larson right there that afternoon. Okay we're going to do what we shouldn't do we're going to. We already were. They let us do it at. What's one more? So we're the GO-TO thick going to championship next year. Like the way too early predictions that I'll start it out. I'll give surprise you. Yes I'm surprise you I'm GonNa take ours. I think the winner is coming from Joe. Gibbs racing rule changes coming for twenty twenty one that to me means a major injured vantage two teams. That are running. Well now. Look at Joe Gibbs racing I feel like they are the best team and I think that helps me more next year. Not many. You're going to have to kind of split your attention attention getting ready for twenty twenty one and twenty twenty. I think Kyle Larson. I'm sorry I think Martin Checks Junior. His team bring the most amount of speed that racetrack every week. I'M GONNA go with Martin Ex. You know we were going to have to do this can i. I how about this is my too early prediction. Then I'm not gonNA pick a champion but I'm Emma predict a guy is going to go and join the multiple winner column and at Somebody Who's not even in the winter column. I Have William buyer and not only breaking through in two thousand twenty breaking through and winning more than one rates. Yeah talking to multiple winning season for William Byron drive twenty four just too good the second half of the season season Chad canals. Coming back top of the box first time in four or five years or have any consistency. Too early predicts that has not WanNa race multiple civil win that moving them young guys. They've show enough and showing that they deserve to be there. And so I like that idea. I'm going to give you a champion. And he's back-back Kyle Busch but my big news is is that the wood brothers get win number one hundred for them and it's Matt to Benedetto. That gets them there and they might win more than one race. Also I believe but I believe that he gets at least that number one hundred for the wood brothers I. I'm not sure there'll be anybody more enthused to be in their car in Daytona that Mattie and it could be the Daytona five hundred where he gets done how. `Bout that we're brothers back is they're making me feel bad. y'All take two drivers that have no wins between the two of them and said they're both going to win. Multiple races here picks martan-chu rex. I mean the low hanging fruit and you want a crazy one. I'm going to go back to back back. We'll be no rain. No Rain racetracks until twenty. Didn't we hear that earlier. This you hope it works. It's time to see did you. Ah Money Nascar America because he is the last time you buy Joy Gordon. Sorry your first.

This season This is there something you'd like to save. I know I know what you on the spot. I think you said it best performance is really think. This is a performance driven decision. If this turns out to be true and I know there was financial ramifications with what swears is bringing that sense but I think for Haas. It's just one of those things where you say. Hey here's someone who's really performing well lower series. We want to give them a chance to move up.

Jimmy was involved in last year's memorable finish at the rose bowl by he hopes this time around. He'll be in victory lane peaceful with our gave birth for years. Jimmy Johnson and his wife Sandra had been giving back to public education in today's no different although it has a little bit different spin on Jimmy. What are we doing here today. Yeah this is largely allies initiative where they really want to teach financial responsibility to kids all around the country we're here today at. Hendrick motorsports went a high school. Students are here and not only learn about financial responsibility but also you know the career paths that exist in a place like Hendrick motorsports where you'd think was just racing but when you really break it down there's engineering and marketing and public relations in a variety of different things that hopefully we can inspire here today at in their stem students so they're interested interested in engineering but but to get that financial element obviously allies bank main focus that'll be key for managing your money to me right way to learn that yeah we had to learn the hardware bravo in typical fashion they want to do it right and and it's a big initiative for them and so it's really important to them to teach that financial responsibility and and I'm taking some notes because I have a nine and a a six year old coming along and we're trying to take care of allowance right now notes from them back to you. Perhaps on the road this weekend because there's not a lot of the data. What did someone call it a subset of one. We have right for one race but going back to this place now. What's your forecast this year. I just need to make that last. yeah that'd be a very important part and not crash morten but it it just a really technical and demanding track and then. I think the changes made we're going to add add another layer of that. the garage area smart you know so. I think our cars are just naturally going to be quicker. We're in around there. Faster Pace plus the higher downforce force. We have on issues package. I think the higher downforce should bring some comfort to us. We're really on its last year so I'm hopeful at least that the higher downforce Coleman cars out a little bit and you mentioned the exit that was that last lab. That's where you nailed it right and you had an incite. You're under a lot more pressure last year I would think because it was a transfer race for story this year a little bit more free and easy and maybe that much more dangerous yeah. I think for a couple reasons one. You're absolutely right with the transfer. Although I wasn't thinking of it it was all about a win I could've finished second transferred and moved on but I was thinking of the wind and then you know just in a rebuilding phase right now. We're trying to rebuild the forty forty eight and make it into what it would will be known as from from this point forward clearly. We have a huge history which had canal the helm car. the history of the car is all about but but we're in a building face in two thousand nineteen really has been a building face. I think we're in a good spot now and we're really looking to these final eight races to set aside for two thousand twenty okay so let's go ahead and talk about the fact obviously looking for redemption this year at the Rosebowl. Can it happen. I mean when you're not in the playoffs. Jimmy Johnson I mean he had a shot last year. It was going for that win. You just said I think it really can happen last year at the robot me from the time that they designed the racetrack. When we started testing testing there he was just on it and you know he's got a road course win but you wouldn't consider Jimmy Johnson the best road course driver out there but I mean he showed up. They were quick from the moment. They got in the race track. During the weekend he was fast and and obviously right here. He had an opportunity to go for the win and now I know I know some people at the time when like why didn't you just settle to make it to the next round the let's not Jimmy Johnson style. You don't win seven championships settling he hasn't won for a while so I don't see now this weekend if they have that same type of speed where he's got no pressure trying to make it to the play. He's trying to spoil everybody to go out there and why he can't do that. Yeah well first of well. He sent it in there which I thought was awesome to watch and I think one of the things I remember from last year was how fast he was actress Chicane. We've completely changed that he was just incredible. Bill meth remade made that huge run on Martin tricks junior coming to that final chicane was that batch when he just got an amazing run through it he was so faster through there all day so I think that was was something that's maybe been taken away from them in terms of what was so good there but he mentioned having higher downforce having more security in the car sorts of things. I think all that's just going to play if you had you were comfortable last year. You're probably going to be more in terms of just having more downforce. The cars could be a little bit more underneath us. Hopefully I'm hoping we'll find out and I think it just having that second year of knowing it's not such an unknown all that through winds up and I think there's an air amongst that team and from Jimmy of confidence I sense you know I know they've mentioned to me a couple of times about having good vibes within that race team and I just think that right now they're in a zone of seen like hey we don't have much to lose at this point so everything serval positive and they he mentioned you building towards next season. I absolutely think that race team is in that positioning okay. We're not gonNA give them to the changes that they made to the track layout. That's coming up later in the show but Jimmy did have a quote last week on racing as a non playoff driver he said I saw quite a few situations where drivers in the playoffs took. Some desperate moves out there. It's not having to other drivers. I have a a few make a move on me as well. It's a tricky situation to be and I know they're going after every point they need but I am i. We currently plan to not allow myself to be used up as I was in Vegas a a couple of times so right there shows that aggression I mean you guys have both been there. You know like in the sense of your racing for something to even if you're not in the playoffs I both situations I made the playoffs and I've been the guy that that has been in the playoffs and no driver wants to be that guy that goes out there in REX playoff contender tender but at the same point they the people that are in the playoffs left understand that like hey the people out of the playoffs. They're quite upset. Jimmy Johnson's. He's never been in this position before so he somewhat forgets hey. He is that guy that used to do that. Every year and you know you take somebody like Daniel Suarez where oh he's he's bouncing off his teammate on the I lab where he got into Joey Logano. He's at an organization that has cautioned the playoff set of one races. He says he was at an organization. The previous couple years that headquarters in the playoffs in one reason he hasn't Wanna racing so he has a lot of pressure for him. Whether maybe he's fight for job or just trying to go out there and win his first interest rates the Austin Dillon thing in bowman at Richmond no or CR they've had struggling year. They're not happy so the drivers that aren't in the playoffs or frustrated straighted and I always looked at it is I don't WanNa be that guy that causes an issue with the playoff drivers have a lot more to lose than I do. So how much risk are are they willing to take and there's a fine line there so that's been my point and I find that some really interesting question. I get asked a lot especially this season driving in a part time capacity. You don't Indy. Just a couple of weeks. Ago was really awkward for me. In terms of I know for my race team. I owe it to them. That are out there looks the same to me doesn't matter what situation there and I've got to beat beat him because as a part time team every finish so much to us or not running there for points. It's literally what that finishes the end of the day matters most and I'll tell you though that no matter what when I was racing around gale swerves in Indy I couldn't help but think man. This guy is a lot to lose today. You know this guy.

"On Nascar America here with AJ Almudena and Parker clergyman both of whom are racing this weekend. Aj and the xfinity series Parker in the Cup series so this Thursday shows really just like a warm up act for the main event each other. That's probably we could be nice erased. Were both going to be on victory lap as well so that he's got game. They give me tips. This gives me no not going to happen to watch but you can watch him on Saturday. Yeah Jack. We're GONNA have to on the show today. We have a lot to get to Jimmy. Johnson does miss part to hold local students and also explains the challenges. You of the Charlottesville involved in the big finish facing a must win situation. We go behind the driver. When Eric Jones reveals the biggest influence his racing career and if another edition of his tail time we take a trip to a short back in North Carolina the tax a lot of fun but we are. I still breaking down the big news from yesterday. Ralston racing announced that it will part ways with Ricky stenhouse junior at the end of the two thousand eighteen season and the Chris Buscher will rejoined organization and drive the number Seventeen Ford Mustang next year and I know social media going crazy with everything someone. Aj reached out to you already said they had maybe the answer that you should be. You should be in the car and he responded with this. I mean I had I had my time and yeah and I'm happy here at the NBC. You See sports family. That's not Mr tickle your cat. Okay no posture yes before we do start this discussion. If you do want to try to follow along there's a lot of moving pieces log on to NBC Sports Dot Com Nate Ryan just posting today the latest it kind of helps sort of break everything down and I guess that's what we have to do here Parker because any time time in any sport an athlete changes address moves teams. You always want us. Okay who who wins in this you know what rush fenway racing does this move. They needed to make for the organization. Are they now on the better side of things. I think you need to look at this organization from what they've been trying to achieve the last couple of years to see how they won here how they cheat with maybe they're trying to achieve and therefore for what I go back to is over the last couple of years. We've watched this organization continue be fringe playoff organizations. They've tried to manipulate ways into the playoffs. They have always called them the team. That's it's money bowling their way into the piles whether it's really focusing on the super speedways with Ricky stenhouse junior and putting a lot of resources on those races in trying to get a win to get in the playoffs house or trying to look at points late in the season say okay. What do we need to do. Average finish wise to make sure we're in the playoffs but what Ryan Newman expose this season was that there there's a path for this team outside the top twenty in fastest cars they could point their way into the playoffs and I think this was. Maybe one of the worst things ricky in that. He's not the type of drive. It really buys into that point situation. He wants to just go out there and rates for wins. He's going to go out there and try to get just the absolute best performance out racecar. He's very aggressive driver. Whereas Newman showed there was the path by being maybe a little bit more consistent a little bit more focus on the point situation so when you look at that and you look at what Chris Butcher does and what he's achieved this season at jt with with numerous top twenty s I mean the best in that organization's history you have to think they looked at those numbers and said all right if we're truly looking at this moneyball situation how can we manipulate the system to make sure that were in the playoffs the best chance they have is someone like Bush over Ricky stenhouse junior because what newman showed them this year and call what it it is. If you look at Chris Butcher he's just a younger version of Ryan Newman. I mean I mean that's essentially what you're saying is. He goes out there and does the same thing he maximizes the race car. He never tears up equipment and I saw this firsthand. He doesn't tariff equipment on his own. I think I count on one hand by himself something that he did the couple of years that I raised with them. He didn't tear up any equipment he maybe had three or four wrecked by himself and he goes out there and make sure that he gets all the points possible. which is what he's doing right now? That's how he's got. The thirty seven car inside the top twenty points had sixteen top twenty in a row up until Richmond this past weekend so so he is a version of Newman now the only thing we've never seen Chris Butcher because he hasn't had the equipment in the Cup series is if they get the cars close enough. Can you go out there and win races in my opinion seen it firsthand being with him every weekend seen how he gets everything out of the race car if they get those cars close enough to to go out there and contend for winds. Maybe not a weekend basis but you picked tracks like Bristol certain places like that and there's so many Chris Amazing at Michigan Kansas. You get cars snuff there. He can go win race so I think this is a great move for row fenway and a great move for Chris Butcher himself. I would like to go back to I think a lot of people overlook the fact of okay for Ricky stenhouse one of the things that I love watching him race cars is that he is so aggressive but he is someone who puts it all on the line. It doesn't matter if it's practice qualifying or the race. He's GonNa give it one hundred ten percent. I love that about him. I love watching him drive race cars for what row Ben Racing trying to achieve though he probably has proven not to be the driver for them and what they're trying to do and that's what I believe. Steve Mo- new Mark Really alluded to in his comments insane. They've started to see a path and he just doesn't align with that path but there is an organization out there possibly that his driving style and the ways we can. San How's it goes about driving that would work for them. It just wasn't right for times. He made those cars look faster gas. Ask actually were but we saw time. He just didn't get the finishes because of being a little too aggressive so you guys are saying I mean I liken it to a quarterback with a great arm but you're playing for a team that likes to run. The ball is just not the right strategy major that fit for that team but there's always sides to every story so we're talking if Rao Fenway is a winner in this situation. What does that mean for? NJIT racing and you're saying you know Kristie well. You raised with him. let's go ahead listened before you get into this discussion a little audio clip from Brad daugherty. Ah About everything went down. Yeah totally caught US off guard because we're we were already building stuff the next season. If everybody else does and getting ready and preparing and you know we do our business a little bit different than a few other folks we really drive you know small packets salk talk to package good product placement stuff really really hard with our partners at Kroger and so yeah we were in the full throes trying to put something significant together and thought we had it done on and pretty close to it and things change. It's like this sketches you off. You know really by surprise this late in the year especially you know you're trying to be a professional as you possibly can. about how you handle these situations i. I don't ever blame any athlete if he thinks he's putting himself in the situation. It's going to be better for him. His family got no no problem with that. It's just for us. It's always the timing and and getting this late into the season when you have commitments it makes it very difficult to swallow this easily so listening to that it sounds like Brad Tatton Jody Scheckter. They were blindsided by this move. I really do think they were blindsided by it. But what the Info that I've gathered in enough people I've talked to in wait somewhat knew it worked is there was a deadline and create. He was not a row fenway driver anymore. When it per se the first year he was at the race is team. He was on loan so he was still route fenway driver that they were alone and after that he became a JT driver but there was a clause in the contract that when Chris was having basically to resign or if the team wanted to resign them it had to be done by a certain date if that date passed Chris and his management team. They let routes fenway no hey they don't they didn't sign so that was a couple of months ago. I don't think anything was really happening until about two weeks ago. It sounds like back and then all of a sudden the wheels in motion started happening and Tuesday night sound like the deal was like this is going to happen Wednesday morning. Everybody knew so to be perfectly honest. I think it was almost a mistake in the sense. There's not a Lotta rides out there so maybe they just thought well. We can kind of just delay this. Take our time because we're GONNA go. There's no rides out there. Where's he going to go next to no ride opened up and he's gone and it's a shame for that race team because he's been doing a fantastic fantastic job and he's made that car inside the top twenty in look strong every weekend so it's going to be interesting they find replace it. We you bring up a good point and that's that AH relationship but crispus your has with Russia and I'm glad you explained that because it sort of puts the pieces in motion or the timeline of the fact that oh wait. There's this kind of contingency. Let's see I guess kind of floating out there. I mean he gave fenway their first or their last and most recent extending series championships and he was with them since he was sixteen years old back all the way to the orchestra series wins achieved champion there for the rule of brothers with being around family relevant driver he didn't get to any inexperienced series takes full holdout. Opportu wins the championship you know they invested in Chris Bush Bush or as a driver vested in his career to bring him up through the ranks and teams will do this. We saw this for numerous years over the last ten or fifteen years. I was a penske development driver. They invested in my hi career and one thing you do if you were to leave them a point and I remember this with Penske was always sort of an unwritten thing. Hey if there's ever a chance for us to join back together you look forward to that because this is the team that took you as a young kid and gave you the opportunity and they thought highly enough of you then and they think highly enough of you in the future to say hey. We want you to come back so that's great situation so. I think you look at it and say okay. He's been gone for a little bit from our tramway but he was always there with them in some respects and they did so much for him to get to this point that he almost went into opportunity come back together like this to benefit both parties then it's a no brainer in that sense so I think it's a cool story in that sense to see teams who have invested young talent to be rewarded in in sort of roundabout way to come back and say okay this guy we invested and now he's come back to hopefully help bus continue our march forward to be more in the playoffs and he's far better off being being in that car now that he was he got out of it right out of the extremely series the experience level having what now four years and that he's been in he knows how to get the job. Bob Dunne and you know I'm a huge fan of Chris. I love being his teammate. We got along great and I learned so much from home and I think as I said rush fenway. They're getting in closer. I mean Heck Ryan. Newman's got a chance to make it to the next round of the playoffs so they're getting closer. They just get it close enough. Both those drivers we know can go win races all right. Let's not right off that thirty-seven still that missing domino of what happens next so we look forward to seeing what happens there but you mentioned making that next round of the playoffs we're GonNa talk about. The role gives us a big race coming.

"The last three years year two years i guess with this package edge they've been fantastic and we had really good cars before that before this package but but just solely on this particular arrow injured package junior murray sports has done a fantastic antacid job of making sure that we're as fast as we can be the hendrickson shabas done a fantastic job of making sure where we need to be and and we'll load it and i mean i. I told jason on the radio i said man. I'm easy wide open. It's i don't know what to do any better. It's really good and when you can unload that way and your teammates can unload oh that way even though they never been here i mean jeb and noah both were faster than i were in. The first practice never been here before. That's that's really impressive so as you look ahead to the play offs and and you would like to change tomorrow that you don't win at this point in time even if you don't get that win these next two races and head into the playoffs you still don't feel like that that you and your team or a championship caliber that you can be a one of those ford homestead. I feel like the last two months we've made huge strides. You know our program agenda sports. We obviously didn't get out of the boxes strong as he wanted to this question we we. We all talked about it. We know it <hes> but the guys went back to work. They worked hard. They've done a fantastic job the last two two and a half months we've we've kinda righted the ship. I feel like we've done a lot. Better job and you know yeah. I wanna win race. I want to win two races before the starter arta but last year we won five races including this race and went on to the playoffs and it was his lacklustre his is disappointing playoffs as you possibly i mean we had fifty or sixty points going into the going into the playoffs and still didn't make the final four you know we were. We were in jeopardy or not even making the final eight yeah you know and so i i look at it for us. We have to go to the playoffs and have momentum so these reasons obviously important but i don't believe at this point. We need a win. We need five wins in the playoffs. Including home said we'll be in great shape. We're we're almost out of time but what would to a romain here. I don't think there's words. They're gonna try but you know. This place is his historic. It's incredible and it would be it would mean a lot. I think i think i would actually do the second one more because at first when you saw the emotion i it was so emotional when i got done i was like man i. I don't remember half the stuff i did. I really don't i got pictures of all of it but it was just an emotional event. I feel like if you do that again. It would be way more emotional all right. We appreciate your taking thanks to all the drivers who stopped by by the way. What did we learn today. In the show kyle rut to drummer. I didn't know dirt rudder.

I'm fired up ready to go down one of my favorite race tracks of all time and now what has quickly become come one of my favorite weekends with all the history and the throwback this year the from nineteen ninety to ninety four era so i'll give you a little sneak that both you guys are in the throwback so i don't know how you feel about that. What's it like down darlington so i i loved arlington. I grew up my dad used to take us to watch races and used to sit in the grandstands which now is used to turn for covered grandstands your ears ringing for a week you know to me. The history is so rich there <hes> that track means so much to the history of racing and very few fluke winners have happened at darlington. You know whether it's this other five hundred or the four hundred they're both big races and they're hard to win. This one might have been a little bit of luke but but yeah we'll tell the story. Why are you so excited. The right front is knocked completely off well. We we'd gone there little laughs in the past and couldn't win a race their life beating lassie last we find a way to screw it up and every the time and then we're coming. We're driving and terror. Three starts pouring down rain and i knocked down. I'm one of four or five that hit the wall. I'm leading the race as senate. It's destroy needs a fronts now like so i kept shoved in third and second the gas to it and kept going around. Eventually you know had the red for the rain and they never quit raining so that's how we won the lead dollars laps and they've been found a way to win some kind of way like that very strange yeah well anyway you you can win at darlington is a good way such a tough track and probably doudou respect a david pearson being the one and only that might attained it more than bitch you as a driver. I think the rest of us were were in the negative side of that no matter how many we might have one or or how much fun but it was always such the cia think that's just the best thing is driver is that you knew what you had there and it was still so very difficult and as suspense have gone up there because of how the technology technology and the tires have gotten better. It's even made it even more difficult. We're looking forward to this weekend a lot of great paint schemes so you mentioned the speeds going up. Imagine turn to with this package how fast they are going to be going for. Turn to i mean the darwin's is one of the racetracks in the world where you drive in the corner. Go wide wide open and a gas in one and then lift off the gas over to turn to like that's crazy. You don't know where else but with the package run this year. I mean they are going to be rolling alternative. It's gonna be fascinating to watch and with that speed. I think it's going to be an interesting mix because you talk about darlington how challenging it was. I don't think it's completely the inaccurate to say when they had to repay their force to repave. You took a little bit of that kind of bite out of the lady in black. The pavement was new. You kinda run tires ars long time. You saw some interesting strategies. Well that is dawn when you look at the last couple races there the old asphalt even the look of the old asphalt is back. The tires are going aware but where does that match up with all this downforce. I expect the fall off to even be bigger because they'll go so fast start. I wanna do is going to be close to wide. Open may not exit a two but across the top one two then you get down in three. We're gonna see more fraud carried than we ever have so. When you talk about the difficulty of darlington the track conditions conditions i think are back to historic garden. We've always seen. I think a little.

I think bells didn't really good job with the courses and <hes> but but our road course races always have some sort of a curve ball thrown at us. You know you got to be in the top five if you don't runoff the racetrack road america so i'm looking forward to it i it's it's gonna be fun.

What what do you face this weekend. One the tracks a lot longer so i think it plays different roles for the strategies you can play <hes> tired aggregations a lot longer but are a lot more but you can do more with with when you pay versus versus restarts stored in trying to dissipate those things and there's more passing zones american because you have the really big breaks owns a intern five candidates so i think there's more opportunities for a lot a lot of different things but there's fourteen of the racetrack so there's a lot more opportunity to screw it up at the same. Time is such an exciting race to watch. We're going to go back to the phones. Oh happy birthday anthony. Since you're a month apart <hes> james is our next caller james. What's on your mind.

"In a beautiful day here in the irish of michigan marty schneider steel del jared and jeff burton join you for a nascar america fan friday and tell you what guys qualifying session was fun i mean and kept seeming meaning as it went on another guy atop another guy and then the last guy goes out brand kazlauskiene wins the pole. Yeah i think the question was who would find something from practice. There are so many cars. I don't think we expect it in the speeds compared to the first time here. We're talking over half a second faster in the poll that just shows this was a non impound. Give those crew chiefs cars and say hey run. Whatever whatever set up you want to make a faster for one yeah the drivers like that too if you can have that car set up just for that one lap instead of having to try to go out and take a ray setup and go as fast as you possibly can with just a few adjustments there incredible at what we watch. They're just as the speeds continued to get a little bit better there but i don't think anybody was surprised at the car that ended up in driver <unk> oscar winning the pole and there is walking to our set. We'll have him on the set in mere moments two hundred one hundred ninety miles an hour for him steve but i have to the team that impressed me. The most was motorsports. I mean we talked about them this. They were a second off this morning. How did they find a second qualify up in the top five when the nine made his first lap but i thought it was going to be a bad day for the nine car as you mentioned one second off that is light years when it comes to nascar racing and a two mile racetrack. I haven't talked to allen gusts in the garage area. He said it's it's been a struggle. We're not bad. We're just too slow. We've made some changes but i think he played a pretty good handle poker because i was still concerned form and and i don't think he had any reason to be concerned improving greatly early in their qualifying round yeah and they've made great strides throughout this entire year and i think that was probably something that they came here. Maybe with one idea and made some changes because there's not a ton you can do but i think they knew exactly where they needed to go if they didn't have the speed that they were looking for but they found that in qualifying see if that translates into some good race cars formal sunday so we mentioned one hundred ninety miles our qualifying d._j. But when you get into the race and your wide open as long as he's drivers are how much of a challenge is the race of. They're gonna a face on sunday. Yeah becomes more of a challenge than when they were running around here a little over two hundred miles per hour. You're backing out of the gas and let nicole role for a while. You just have to hustle these car for so much anymore and if you're going to get speed out of them they can't be what a driver would like to feel which would be a little bit of a tug on the wheel as you go through the corner you just that describes rubs off too much now and so you have to drive these things on the edge all the time and a pack of cars where the air is just knocking you around and i think that's the biggest issue these drivers average face yeah when i talked to kuchis on what the goal is tomorrow in race practice the concern is they don't know because you could go out there and it's so circumstantial you can be in one pack of cards and your cars. There's a little tight the same setup two laps later in a different area of the race track behind a different group of cars can be loose so a lot of it is a big educated guess on how much downforce you need for sunday day how comfortable your driver can be and as d._j. Said he can't be too comfortable. He's too comfortable by itself is going to be nowhere near close enough to get a pack so he talked about the fact that this is a non impound weekend weekend they get practice tomorrow and then they'll get tech the cars before the race on sunday and everybody.

No not at all dangerous man uh-huh you've already signed up for a couple of businesses. Haven't you sent me up right so that's that's so let's start there. I guess I guess that would be the most important thing. Is You know we we live in America. This is called everyday America the podcast so so first and foremost just made from your perspective as how important is entrepreneurship for our country. That's a great question. I had no idea what Russia we'd be heading but that's <hes> that's a great question in my opinion in my opinion that entrepreneurism is is it's highly highly important when it comes to the economy in general because entrepreneurs to create opportunity entrepreneurs create jobs opportunity or entrepreneurs creek a that drain. Everyone is looking for but if you're looking for capital flood if you're looking for financial stability <hes> most times people are getting out from jail be from a job and and they're usually working for somebody who had created a business ahead of event had a vision had a concept brought it into fruition and then boom they got a business and the individuals who are working for that business so entrepreneurism. The importance is what helped make America what it is today well. I mean that's what people don't maybe realizes that every person the has a job work for entrepreneur have some sort correct every every job out there weren't entre is created by an entrepreneur. I mean at least initially but I mean there's a lot of publicly holded <hes> companies out there right now that have win a different route <hes> <hes> I mean I think probably most of them started out that way. Yeah I would venture to guess all of them. Have I'm the professional stock trader so I deal with the publicly traded stocks and if you look at the genesis of every major business that's out there. Apple is with Steve Jobs. I mean you can go on and on with with <hes> Microsoft too. I mean you all the big blue chip companies that are out there Coca Cola Pepsi G._E.. They all started with an individual that had a dream in started a business and it becomes so large a lot of them become conglomerates so I did you say that you won't have a business without somebody with a vision in in his taken the wrist and taking the steps for you know spawning that I did and foolish into a tangible item that that <hes> commerce has created so does you you mentioned a dream. I gotta ask you. This might be a little bit deep early on but what does this dream kick over the world. Well now my dad. That's a great question which one of you just outside. That's Travis Jones yeah. That's the could be <hes> well. My dream is family. Guy Is having the freedom that everybody hopes for having the financial security assure you that will give me peace of mind and the ability
