Let me go at my own pace. He answered all my questions, and there were a lot of questions inside. Just been through every fight 10 months before. Spencer was supportive of my need to know about every charge and took the time to explain everything. Sometimes more than once. I appreciate it appreciated that he would check in to see if I needed help. And watch the process closely, prompting me to act when I missed a call or email, Uh, he was incredibly attentive to details and personally saw them. My needs were taken care of at warp speed. This is my third home and about my eight or 935 experience, but it's been the best, usually in the middle of it. You get handed off to somebody else. He remained in the background guiding and checking in on me a total White Glove service. Ask for this guy. You will love the experience just to clarify No one paid me to write this When you get good or bad service, you tend to want the world to know.

I know from personal experience, having done four of them myself. I think Dina really nailed it. And obviously she loved working with Spencer Lupin. Yeah, The customers are amazing. Like I wish we were allowed to give them something to reward. It's actually illegal in our business. Now, because of the animal s is new rules. We can't give them something of value. Like we can't even send him a network capital HaTorah, nowhere capital. Anything so all we could do is just shout them out on the radio. And when we call him and tell him, Thank you like that's really all we could do. I wish we could do more. I'd fly out every single person that does a five star review and let them meet the people that they were working with. They have no idea how much this means, like these people were sacrificing so much Teresa to make sure they can get the job done in this 10 day clip, like there's a lot of pressure is a lot of stress. We really want to make sure we deliver. In this moment. We don't want to let us single family down as the thousands of calls poor, and we want to make sure that each person gets the opportunity to save money between Spencer Siegel and Spencer Lubin.

This is Bloomberg Daybreak and this is fed decision day investors waiting for clues on when the central bank will start tapering and whether there will be a shift to the hawkish side. Joining us now is Tom Porcelli, chief U S economist at RBC Capital Markets. Tom Thank you for taking the time. Always a pleasure. How important is this meeting? It's important. I mean, look, I think that this is you know, one of the one of the first meetings where we can say that there is real potential for the Fed to start to make more of a meaningful shift toward the idea of removing accommodation. I mean, I think we know from recent speeches. Excuse me that And certainly there's that conversation is now happening in the open with fed officials, right? I mean, I think we count no fewer than four Fed officials that have basically said, You know, we should start having that conversation. So in some ways, it would actually be weird if they didn't have the conversation at this meeting, right? I think the cat has already added bag on that one. So yeah, I think in the context of You know us beginning to shift away from extreme accommodation. I think that it's important. So while the Fed isn't really expected to change policy today, people are watching to see if and when they might. So, what are you listening for? Today? Yeah. You know, I I want to see there's a couple of things I think that will be sort of tells for for us, So you know, one of them is you know we're looking at the 2020. The 2023 median dot You know, Right now it's showing no hike. It only takes two more officials that think no hike in 23 4, the median to shift but again, these are not big things, right? I mean, these are all told part of this sort of the beginning part of the process. We'd want to see that happen, You know, maybe a couple of more Fed officials move into the 2022 camp again. We saw some shift occur last go around as well. So it's it's You know, it's more of an evolution right, as opposed to anything more more dramatic than that, And I think Powell's tone again. I think we'll be important Look, he has been incredibly cautious. Um, throughout, you know, even you know, in the face of incredibly strong growth, you know, inflationary pressures that are building you know, he has continued to maintain, you know, a generally cautious stance. Toward toward the backdrop. You know, we'll be watching closely to see if there's any if there's any, you know, even nuanced change in his tone. We've heard a lot about those inflationary pressures on the increase, but how much influence then with the next couple of, say, job reports have on these discussions. Yeah, I think I think it's a great question. Look, it's again the transitory question on inflation. I've said this many times. Now I think that it's um I think it's being, um, I think it's too simple, an idea for what we're going through, and I think the reality is it's incredibly hard to know if it is truly transitory. So I would love to hear a little more humility from the Fed on on that point. I mean, it's just it's too difficult to know It's a random guess. Right now, this this notion that it's going to be transitory, a I think a little more humility would be great. So, but I think you're right point. You know, I think it has been about the labour backdrop, right? I mean, we all know the Fed has a dual mandate. You know, That's obviously well known idea, but it's obviously also clear that the Fed is very focused on on the labour side of of the equation, and by the way if they dispute that idea, Then they should do a better job of making us all believe that they really are as concerned on the inflation side as as they are on the labour side, So yeah, I do. I think that the labor numbers are going to be important. You know, as we know that the BLS The folks that compiled that report. You know, they seem to be having their seemingly some challenges with that number right now on whether it's because of sampling or adjustments. The The reality is, it's not quite keeping up with the ADP report, which is printing now near a million jobs. So palace said many times that his You know, he well, he would love to see payrolls get back to the February 2020 level. I think that's a really high hurdle. I think that a larger percentage of people then it's probably appreciated how have simply retired over the pandemic window, so I don't know that you can get back to that level. So some fleshing out of that idea, I think would be very useful. But But again, if pals waiting for that that that number if that's one of the lines in the sand We could be waiting for quite some time. All right. Tom Parcel Lee, chief U. S economist at RBC Capital Markets. Always a pleasure.

Nearly one hundred percent actually and takes is really the political will to has some pretty basic laws.

White House Press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany and Biden and give insight into each camps. Thoughts about the counting president is very calm and taking in the news as they come and is resolute and looking at the votes and making sure that as he noted that legal votes are counted illegal votes.

"State of Pennsylvania As goes Philly. So goes the state of Pennsylvania. Now the general benchmark for Democrats to is to net about 500,000 votes out of Philadelphia. Several Democrats I've talked to today feel like they're going to hit that Mark. Of course, as you mentioned, The other part of the story in Pennsylvania is the relatively slow count of mail in ballots compared to other states. Several several Democrats are telling me to look to Allegheny County, though that's the county where Pittsburgh is that county counted. It's ballots very fast during the primary, and they feel like Allegheny County could have an early post of arc of a lot of valets early on this evening, compared to other parts of the state, and that could give a sense of where the Democratic vote is OK, A little update and snapshot there from the Biden Tour bus. Ah, you sure? Roscoe let me get you in here? How has President Trump spent his election day? It's been a bit of a reversal because for the last few days, Trump has been all over, and Biden has not hit as many places Last night. Trump wrapped up a rally in Michigan after midnight, And today he visited his campaign headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, where he gave some brief remarks. Then he headed back to the White House where he'll be tonight. Trump did call into Fox and friends this morning as he has been doing for the past few weeks. You know, both at the headquarters in on Fox Truck was a bit more circumspect and less bombastic about his chances on Fox, he was asked at what point he would declare victory, and here's what he said. When there's victory. If this victory I think I think we'll have victory. I think the Poles are You know, Suppression bowls, and I think we'll have victory, but only when there's mystery. There's no reason to play games. Trump has repeatedly pushed unfounded fears about the integrity of the election, and there have been some concerns raised that he would try to declare victory before all the results are counted. Just to drive home this point and make it really clear. No candidate can just declare victory races could be called tonight, but no state actually finishes counting on election night. Can't say it enough. No state is going to finish counting tonight. Scott Retro back to you. Where is Biden going to be watching from tonight? As results come in. He's going to be in Wilmington. It's going to be the same set up outside a minor league Baseball stadium, where he appeared at that mostly virtual Democratic national convention this summer. Campaign officials have told NPR we will likely hear from bite in one way or another tonight. I think the mood will be set early on for the Biden campaign, though Democrats feel really good about Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, But it's those Sunbelt states that will set the tone. Florida, Georgia, North Carolina also competitive so close and they all should Post votes relatively early in the night. If I didn't wins one of those places he has a very good chance of being president. If President Trump wins all three, Biden still has a path, but it's going to be a lot closer. And I think that would instantly put Democrats all over the country back into that 2016 election night brain space. If that does happen, I should. How about where does it look from? From the Trump campaign site of things have they indicated how they see the results unfolding tonight? Trump said today to reporters that he thinks that we're going to have a great night, but also quote it's elections. And you never know. You know. Trump predicted big victories in Texas and Arizona and said the results from Florida and Pennsylvania would be key. Obviously, his team has seen the public polls that mostly have trump down by narrow margins in key states. Eso his campaign manager, Bill Stepien, did this big 20 Twitter thread yesterday, talking about how they expect that today's votes will offset any democratic gains in early votes in these key states. What Stepien argued is that there is momentum on Trump's side. And that there are lots of those are lots of trump voters out there and that if they vote today than Trump can win, as we've talked about, it is a big, risky to bank one election day votes rather than banking votes ahead of time, But obviously Trump pulled off a win once and they believe he can do it again. Okay, quick question to each of you to close us out. What is the closing message tonight from the campaign? Scott the Biden campaign. It's the message that has been the opening message than the only message. The idea that Biden is battling for the soul of the nation trying to make President Trump one term aberration and bring more you do the country. That's how we started the race. That is what he was yelling into that bullhorn just a few hours ago on the last day I usedto 30 seconds, But what's the closing message from the president? Trump saying that he made America great. But then the pandemic took the country on track, and now he's going to make America great again again. Ah, that's the message. There. We are. NPR White House correspondent Aisha Roscoe and our political correspondent on the bus Got Metro. Thanks to you both. Sure, thank you. And a reminder. We will have live special coverage starting at seven Eastern tonight and you can find results. As we get them. We will share them with you. That'll be over at NPR dot or GE.

"So, most of the biggest restaurant chains started in small places McDonald's was born in San Bernardino California Domino's in Epsilon t Michigan Sonic Shawnee Oklahoma Arby's Boardman Ohio. There are a number of reasons why this is the case there's usually less competition. The rent is lower, and if white you're offering is new or different people will stand in line for it as they did at the original boardwalk fries in ocean city Maryland which is now a franchise company with more than one hundred locations nationwide they stood in line the chicken. Salad Chicken Auburn Alabama up which now has one hundred forty stores same with five guys in Arlington, Virginia and empire of more than fifteen hundred locations today, and as you will hear in the mid nineteen, ninety s people came from far and wide for some of the best pit barbecue they ever had and it wasn't in Texas Hill country or eastern North, Carolina. But rather in Hayward Wisconsin town of twenty three, hundred people in the northern reaches of the United States where in January he can get down to minus seventeen degrees. This is where Dave Anderson, after years of trying out different business ideas decided to open famous Dave's barbecue in nineteen, ninety four. Today famous Dave's has about one hundred and twenty five locations nationwide making it one of the largest barbecue chains in the country. But the story of Dave's is also a story of how a simple passion for serving smoked ribs chicken and brisket Kim grow too big and too fast and how a founder of can almost lose complete control of a good idea. Dave Anderson grew up in a working class family in Chicago in the nineteen fifties and sixties both his parents were native Americans who grew up on reservations in different parts of the country. My Dad's a full blood choctaw Indian from idol. Homa and if you were to look at a map, of Oklahoma, you'd see that I had a bell is in the southeast corner of Oklahoma, which is way down south, and then my mom is from the Likud array reservation wishes way up north she's. A member of the Likud Ray Lake Superior Band of Ojibway says she grew up in Wisconsin he grew up in Oklahoma and how did they meet both of my parents? I think is the unfortunate part of my story where taken by the Bureau of Indian affairs away from their families and stuck an Indian boarding schools basically making orphans out of them now fortunately for me, though my parents met at Haskell Institute, for Indians, Lawrence Kansas so both just to clarify. So both your parents grew up on Indian reservations they met at a boarding school that I guess was where Indian kids from across the country were brought to I. Don't know. Basically to mainstream because my dad when he was brought into a boarding school didn't speak English. She was A choctaw speaking Indian and When he got put into these boarding schools, he can remember. Being beat in having this mouthwash dot with soap and tell e would forget his language and only speak English didn't happen Abraham Lincoln's Day or George Washington's Day. But this generation my parents I think that's a story that sometimes people in America never here. No, they don't what did your dad do for a living when you were a kid? My Dad was electricity and My mom was a secretary she worked as a secretary. So I was like a lot of kids that lived in a working class neighborhood and we didn't have a lot but we always had food on the table I think growing up though I always knew that my family was different because when all the other kids are going out for pizza and hotdogs especially. In Chicago being a great pizza town. Chicago hotdogs, my dad would load us up into the family car and we're headed down to south side of Chicago. For rips and growing up I. Knew every black owned barbecue joint in Chicago and I can remember as early as nineteen fifty-nine, nine eating rip tips at Limbs Barbecue and fifty nine hundred state street. Yeah I mean Chicago became obviously hugely important. As Barbecue. Capital because of the great migration. So many African Americans who migrated out of the Jim Crow South moved to Chicago and brought them their culinary traditions you the also brought blues, what a great combination in. So Chicago throughout the years has always been known as a great blues town down also great, barbecue. Dave as a kid. Did your mom and dad instill strong. Indian values in you did you did you have a strong? Indian identity as a kid. You know growing up in a native American family we were cognizant that. We were America's first people. My Dad was very proud of his choctaw nation. My mom was proud to be from the Likud array reservation and for us that got carried over in that we ate Indian foods. My Dad was very insistent that he had his foods from the south my mom with growing up. She did a lot of fishing and she harvested wild rice. And so throughout years. My Dad would always. Make pilgrimages down to the south so he could get his banana. Corn. Type of bread almost like tamales wrapped up and corn us, and then my mom would always take fishing up north and we would harvest wild rice and but more importantly to raise money for the family. My parents would have a Indian. Freiburg stand and my dad would grilled and smoked cup venison mom would make Indian FRY bread and also wild rice soup but we would sell venison fried bread sandwiches along with balls of wild rice soup I think attending Indian powwows with my mom where we would have the Indian Freiburg stand really taught me a lot about cooking cooking outdoors but also the appreciation for foods that are harvested naturally being able to harvest wild rice.

But this generation my parents I think that's a story that sometimes people in America never here. No, they don't what did your dad do for a living when you were a kid? My Dad was electricity and My mom was a secretary she worked as a secretary. So I was like a lot of kids that lived in a working class neighborhood and we didn't have a lot but we always had food on the table I think growing up though I always knew that my family was different because when all the other kids are going out for pizza and hotdogs especially. In Chicago being a great pizza town. Chicago hotdogs, my dad would load us up into the family car and we're headed down to south side of Chicago. For rips and growing up I. Knew every black owned barbecue joint in Chicago and I can remember as early as nineteen fifty-nine, nine eating rip tips at Limbs Barbecue and fifty nine hundred state street. Yeah I mean Chicago became obviously hugely important. As Barbecue. Capital because of the great migration.

Famous Dave's: Dave Anderson

"Did you. Give it the name famous Dave's as kind of a joke because you weren't get famous, right Well on the road out of town, there's Dave's guns, Dave's antiques, Dave's boats so. was going to name my place Dave's famous barbecue shop. I get my business cards and it said famous Dave's barbecue. I imagine I can't believe the printer messed up my business cards and my wife's a dave calm down when she just leave it. So famous Dave's. History. From NPR, it's how I built this show about innovators, entrepreneurs, idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. I'm guy rise and on the show today our passion for smoked ribs lead Dave Anderson open a barbecue. In the middle of nowhere and how it grew into famous Dave's one of the biggest barbecue chains in the country. Are. So, most of the biggest restaurant chains started in small places McDonald's was born in San Bernardino California Domino's in Epsilon t Michigan Sonic Shawnee Oklahoma Arby's Boardman Ohio. There are a number of reasons why this is the case there's usually less competition. The rent is lower, and if white you're offering is new or different people will stand in line for it as they did at the original boardwalk fries in ocean city Maryland which is now a franchise company with more than one hundred locations nationwide they stood in line the chicken. Salad Chicken Auburn Alabama up which now has one hundred forty stores same with five guys in Arlington, Virginia and empire of more than fifteen hundred locations today, and as you will hear in the mid nineteen, ninety s people came from far and wide for some of the best pit barbecue they ever had and it wasn't in Texas Hill country or eastern North, Carolina. But rather in Hayward Wisconsin town of twenty three, hundred people in the northern reaches of the United States where in January he can get down to minus seventeen degrees. This is where Dave Anderson, after years of trying out different business ideas decided to open famous Dave's barbecue in nineteen, ninety four. Today famous Dave's has about one hundred and twenty five locations nationwide making it one of the largest barbecue chains in the country. But the story of Dave's is also a story of how a simple passion for serving smoked ribs chicken and brisket Kim grow too big and too fast and how a founder of can almost lose complete control of a good idea. Dave Anderson grew up in a working class family in Chicago in the nineteen fifties and sixties both his parents were native Americans who grew up on reservations in different parts of the country. My Dad's a full blood choctaw Indian from idol. Homa and if you were to look at a map, of Oklahoma, you'd see that I had a bell is in the southeast corner of Oklahoma, which is way down south, and then my mom is from the Likud array reservation wishes way up north she's. A member of the Likud Ray Lake Superior Band of Ojibway says she grew up in Wisconsin he grew up in Oklahoma and how did they meet both of my parents? I think is the unfortunate part of my story where taken by the Bureau of Indian affairs away from their families and stuck an Indian boarding schools basically making orphans out of them now fortunately for me, though my parents met at Haskell Institute, for Indians, Lawrence Kansas so both just to clarify. So both your parents grew up on Indian reservations they met at a boarding school that I guess was where Indian kids from across the country were brought to I. Don't know. Basically to mainstream because my dad when he was brought into a boarding school didn't speak English. She was A choctaw speaking Indian and When he got put into these boarding schools, he can remember. Being beat in having this mouthwash dot with soap and tell e would forget his language and only speak English didn't happen Abraham Lincoln's Day or George Washington's Day. But this generation my parents I think that's a story that sometimes people in America never here. No, they don't what did your dad do for a living when you were a kid?

Pardons Granted by President Donald Trump

"But as I pointed out it was a pardon frenzy yesterday that was all the talk all the rage across the national airwaves and of course local airwaves as to president trump and his decision to pardon and or commute sentences for a lot of prominent people in some not so proud and we want your thoughts as well to hear on the phone line seven oh two two five seven five three nine six as we discuss the president and his decision to pardon these die and grant clemency on Tuesday to eleven people who serve prison sentences for crimes in high profile cases ranging from gaming fraud and tax evasion to drug related charges now trump who has a broad clemency powers granted by the constitution we understand this right grand full pardons our full legal forgiveness for a crime to seven people commuted and shorten the sentences of four others now obviously presents seven party people for years and we acknowledge that we understand that and occasionally there's been situations where presidents across the board at pardon people that are controversial right that are you take a look at you said you now I don't necessarily think that was the right thing to do wasn't it I don't understand why you decided pardon this person over it over another and the eight calls into question credibility of the individual but with Donald Trump it it is interesting take a look at the individuals that he has decided to partner can either sense and of course when you talk about high profile maybe nobody more high profile than rob boy it bubble ball go eight H. and this obviously rob luggage was a prominent politician in Illinois for a for a number of years Abbas the governor of Illinois and there is this perception out there of politics in that state and it's not a good one okay it's a it's a it's a reputation that corruption runs wild that it's the wild wild west even though its Illinois in the Midwest and that are you that is you know more so maybe than any other state in the country it has a bad reputation so the fact that the president would decide on robin we'll go live H. to be one of the people pardon I I think is a prize is a lot of people now to give you the details basically rob all I get is it is a formula governor sort of forty eight was serving a fourteen year presents for federal charges that uses powers as governor to extract campaign money and other favors for potential contenders for the Illinois Senate seat that was left open by president Obama when when he be actually took office now troubles previously asserted that but boy that should Democrat who appeared as a guest on the president's program he's not slip your prince was treated very very unfairly there's a there's a running theme here with president trump is it's when when he discusses the reasoning behind these pardons it always is these people around you know these people have suffered these people are you know they're getting railroaded they've been wronged as people at by the way the convicted felons okay this isn't it a pity party for people that are you know serving hard time for crimes a day they had been convicted of committing all right so you've got blue eyes itch you also have obviously high profile a person in Bernard Kerik he's the former police commissioner in New York a lot of this remember him as a really one of the prominent people along with governor jewelery she's the mayor Giuliani in New York City during nine eleven he was the New York City police commissioner who was very lauded for his response the nine eleven attacks rightly so in my opinion apparently but unfortunately for him he was sent to four years in prison after he pleaded guilty to felony charges of tax fraud and lying to White House officials while being interviewed to head the department of homeland security he served three years in federal prison before his release in two thousand thirteen there's also another I'm not a number of other prominent people that have been pardon we talk about Eduardo junior form on the same school forty Niners a lot of people in sports obviously no he is he was fined one million as part of the gambling fraud case in Louisiana like nineties you got Michael Milken a rope funny it's here talked about as the junk bond king pleaded guilty in nineteen ninety to several counts of securities in tax violations an announcement of his pardon the White House described him as one of America's greatest financiers and credit is work fighting prostate cancer I'm you also have our you'll free lawyer he's a founder and chief executive officer ET understands that there's kind of a pattern going on here free learner will you know was the CEO of an Arlington Virginia based software company pleaded guilty in two thousand fourteen serve two months in prison for conspiring to hack into your computer system the two competitors yeah Paul Paul pope who is a the owner of a Texas construction company plead guilty and sense of three years in prison in two thousand ten for filing a false federal tax return and there's there's David survey Safavian Viet Safavian's give me and a I enjoy stand also who has been part enlisting was an author Dr a reality TV star served time in prison for her part in a stolen car ring and I so I don't I guess you would characterize Angela Stanton necessarily as a white collar criminal but does she is now a trump supporter advocate for criminal justice reform and the goddaughter of Martin Luther king junior's politically conservative niece L. B. two K. and she spoke also at the two thousand eighteen women for trump conference and frankly post pro trump messages or Twitter account so there is a there's kind of running pattern here when it comes to these Florio pardons that the president has decided to engage and the funny thing would be white collar crime for the most part right and criminals who have been convicted of crimes obviously nonviolent crimes they are not talking about you know serial rapist here not talking about mass murderers by any stretch but there is a there's kind of a running theme here as JT shop judges your lives to and I don't think I'm online G. by pointing this out that well it is very very it's very intriguing to say the least right that the president of the United States is decided to pardon these types of individuals in any of these individuals spend time in el Chapo cell in NC si I would suspect not I think that does want one of those the the person you're talking about I'm to my glove not is getting a raw deal on that with that situation six does not at least I don't I don't expect they did have to deal with that with with that type of

here is Osiris my name is a sire soil I'm from New Mexico I pretty much grew up in in a farm where I had to do a lot of things on my own when I was I think maybe eleven years old I was selling newspapers popsicles flowers on my bicycle and of course helping my dad farm and I learned how to cook with my mom pretty much every single day she will wake me up and asked me what I wanted to eat but of course a active helper in a way that I need to cook it with her but I need to get the radius for her my my mom she's extremely picky but that's why her food is so delicious she's the same age to the yard right and and I'll pick tomatoes how the narrows anything that she needed for her meal and I'll come with tomatoes and initial fields them and she's like no this is not right and I like what it means that you look scared and you feel it and she's like feel like you know and so soft and for may look fine you know the same thing with lines she would just see it and feel it and she's like well it's not good that they will get more the standards were so high and sees them my standards are in Mexico you cannot choose what kind of life you want to leave you know I mean I remember they didn't know I was poor and tell a man you know rich kids when I went to my friends pro when I was maybe fourteen thirty years old I realize that the they had the toys and games or they have a better bathrooms thing we did and then I was like man I think you know we struggle so when I came to United States yeah I came with a tourist visa and and I decided to stay when I was two thousand I was working as a dishwasher you know I was making minimum wage at that point and I met my wife to work things she was the waitress and I need to learn English so I can ask her out right so I decided to learn the system and I used to work at this restaurant bar in Denver Colorado and even though was on their age they let me stay at the bar right because I was helping them with via the K. you know and bring in a and I wasn't drinking by I stay at the bar talking to drunk people it would be my best features I remember you know I was asking questions like how do you say there is NO and then I'll write it down if for some reason they I think they feel important yeah I mean I don't know if you're drinking every day at the bard something's going on right so they feel important I think they they liked the way that I was asking them questions and and they were my best features yeah I mean the first week I thought of it and I hated them and now it's I was very welcome and I did it for several

two years three years I think a an engineer to separate for some reason problem because my English was not good but I was trying right in sees band we got merry and now we have three kids it was great okay and the thousand six we moved to the city you know because things were going well and I was excited to try something new and I found this construction job that was paying a lot more than if I was just a cook so that was great you know I took the job even though I did have I have that much experience but the construction companies sell my potential they they saw that I could do more than just be a service dye your so the same need to school so I can learn how to read blueprints and for me I start seeing the potential to be something else than just a cook in the kitchen something professional where I can be the superintendent of the company and I can run projects and I feel good everything was going well you know I thank the projects where I actually was Phoenician before schedule on the budget working my **** off and I felt like yeah bonuses were coming in this is great so we bought our house in two thousand seven Aaron and then you know we had a baby everything was

insurance right my wife she's pregnant we'll we'll figure out later and they just couldn't give me on on their payroll I took my truck drove away and I had to park in a parking lot I was actually

'Curbside Pickup' Gains Steam In Grocery Shopping

'Curbside Pickup' Gains Steam In Grocery Shopping

"There is a war going going on in the grocery store. The grocery industry is huge sales in the US in two thousand seventeen or six hundred seventy four billion dollars but the margins margins are razor thin so retailers have to do whatever they can to get your business and one of the ways. They're trying to do that is by offering something called curbside side pick-up. That's when you order your groceries either online or by the phone and then you go to the store to pick them up and more and more stores are offering this service there there are about twenty three billion dollars of orders for groceries pleased online each year that is according to research and right now that twenty three billion is evenly thinly split between curbside pickup and delivery they are neck and neck but grocery stores would so much rather that their customers use curbside pickup for so many any reasons in big cities. Stores are desperately trying to stay ahead by offering you delivery but there's another battle front. The smaller cities the suburbs places with a lot of sprawl and parking lots and rural areas. That is where curbside pickup is increasingly. The weapon of choice. So that's where we are headed to the battlefront to the grocery store parking lot. Where in Arlington Virginia at a Harris Teeter is? This is where Jenny Ross tiled is about to pick up her groceries. She works fulltime as is a public librarian. She also was three kids. Two of whom are under the age of five. It's been a long day. They're hungry but we need to get the food so he can eat it. There's no there's already an employee out here. He has a clipboard and he asks Jenny for her name in her family. Uses curbside pickup about once a month. The first time I ever used this was because the kids were sick and he don't WanNa bring kids into a grocery store so the guy appears then he put the groceries and Jenny's trunk and that's it she just has to sign her receipt and leave. Jenny loves curbside pickup. It's just super convenient but retailers. LERS also love it for so many reasons. One of the most important is because delivering groceries is expensive even if it seems like it's not think about all. The costs costs that go into delivery. There's the cost of hiring a human being to walk down the aisles. Push a cart pick out the groceries that you order it online then take them outside outside and load them into a truck and then the driving there's gas and tolls and insurance add it all up and it's expensive so nope delivery doesn't always make economic sense in a lot of places but curbside pickup can have its problems to the economics for retailers. Haven't been totally elite figured out yet. A lot of stores charged just four or five dollars for pickup. But just like with delivery. They still have to pay a human employees to walk up and down the aisle and Philip Cart art so curbside. Pickup is cheaper than delivery but it is still an added cost

How Could Hypersonic Missiles Work?

"Today's episode is brought to you by the capital one venture card the capital one venture card you earn unlimited double miles every purchase every day and you can use those miles toward travel expenses like flights hotels rental cars and more just book and pay for your travel using your venture card and redeem your miles toward the cost capital one. What's in your wallet? Credit approval required capital one bank U._S._A.. An welcome to brain stuff production of iheartradio Hebron stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here at a meeting in Arlington Virginia in late two thousand eighteen. One of the Pentagon's top officials told an audience of defense executives that the U._S. is locked in a tight race with Russia and China to develop a new game changing weapon the could fly at many times the speed of sound in could be used to launch devastating attack upon an emmy in a matter of minutes these which was told by Michael de Griffin the Department of Defense Undersecretary for Research at engineering that of all of the technological marvels at the Pentagon hoped to create developing a hypersonic missile Dole was his highest priority. It's hard to understand why hypersonic missiles technology that could be deployed as soon as the mid twenty twenty s sounds like the sort of exotic menace that villain would dream up in James Bond thriller. We could get them to work. Hypersonic missiles could have the ability to fly and maneuver it speeds between five and twenty five thousand kilometers per hour at a range of altitudes up to one hundred kilometers above earth surface for our non-metric friends. That's about three to fifteen thousand miles per hour at up to. Sixty two miles high at the edge of orbital space these capabilities could make a nightmare to defend against them because they would be moving so fast that it would be difficult to predict where they were about to strike until the last few minutes before impact end because the missiles travel. It's such a high speed their sheer kinetic energy alone would enable them to wreak destruction without carrying any conventional explosives or nuclear warheads. There are different potential methods of attaining fantastic speed what approaches to fire conventional missile that would in turn release smaller hypersonic glide vehicle which would fly up into the upper layers of the atmosphere another approach would utilize a rocket or advanced jet engines such as a scrammed jet military visionaries have in contemplating hypersonic weapons for decades but it wasn't until recently the concept begin to see him close to fruition not due to anyone specific breakthrough in technology but rather due to a combination of progresses and political motivation. We spoke by email with Eon de buoyed a professor of airspace engineering at the University of Michigan. He explained to develop a missile. You I have to show that the platform can fly emission of interest that was demonstrated in the U._S.. In Two thousand ten to twenty fourteen by scrammed jet powered demonstration Asian flights while the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or Darpa to flight tests of their H.. T. V. to boost glide vehicle ended in failure. Significant progress was demonstrated an important lessons learned in an overlapping time period the Pentagon and demonstrated longer range hypersonic vehicle capabilities and their conventional prompt strike program Darpa in the Air Force then partnered to mature many of the systems needed on a platform to make into a weapon as such as the guidance navigation and control materials. Dell's structures and rocket boosters but the U._S. wasn't alone. Interest in developing hypersonic capabilities Boyd said China was watching and learning and at some point started investing hyper sonics since two thousand fifteen it became evident that significant progress was being made that at least in numbers of flight tests conducted appeared to show China Outpacing U._S. efforts and in Russia where they've worked on hypersonic for decades like the U._S. also seem to have had recent successes but test flights in response to the Chinese and Russian progress the trump administration is pushing to develop hypersonic weapons as soon as possible and is requesting funding of two point six billion dollars for hypersonic research by the Air Force Navy Army and Darpa in its budget request for the twenty thousand financial all year the managing editor for National Security for the Center for Public Integrity. One are Jeffrey Smith reported in The New York Times magazine that spending on developing hypersonic weapons could rise to five billion dollars a year as the U._S. pushes to develop a deployable hypersonic or Sonic Missile System in the next two to three years though hypersonic missiles could carry nuclear warheads the missiles being developed by the U._S. will only be equipped with conventional explosives but they'll still be plenty fearsome as Smith wrote in The Times of quote the missiles function like nearly invisible power drills at smash holes in their targets to catastrophic affect. They'll impact their targets with a force equivalent to three to four tons of T._N._T.. According to Speth in some ways hypersonic. Like missiles presented different and perhaps even scarier threat to peace than present nuclear arsenals because they could enable a nation to launch a surprise attack and crippling enemies ability to retaliate leaving it helpless against the threat of nuclear attack. They'd be difficult to defend against I for a number of reasons their speed the fact that they fly in an area between aviation and spaceflight that we've never had to defend in and they're maneuverable meaning that have to be tracked throughout their flight with accuracy Boyd explained another issue quote put this class of missiles is not covered by any currently valid weapons treaty. This poses a number of concerns including the fact that the nation's primarily involved the U._S.. China and Russia do not have established protocols in place for the use of these systems finally only the potential for a hypersonic weapon to carry either a conventional warhead or a nuclear warhead means that a nation under threat wouldn't know whether a nuclear response should be considered that all means that in the near future hypersonic missiles could lead to a continuous atmosphere of hyper anxiety in which nations might be afraid to not strike first or to instantly launch a counter attack at the first hint of trouble or at the very least it could prompt nations to spend even more money on not just counter-attacks but defense measures.

But we'll drivers cash in on the stock to from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Uber is going public tomorrow listing its shares on the new York Stock Exchange some employees of the company stand to make millions even billions of dollars and Uber is giving drivers with more than twenty five hundred rides on the platform. Cash bonuses that they can use to buy stock at the initial public offering price the amounts ranged from one hundred bucks two maybe up to forty thousand dollars depending on how many rides at driver has. But how much of a benefit is that two drivers who are already unhappy with their pay Shaly Ramirez, drives for Uber. She's eligible for the stock. But says I don't think it's enough. I think they're China throw crumbs at us at the end of the day. What we need is something that is guaranteed on a weekly basis on a daily basis on a yearly basis. On Wednesday in New York City Ramirez and other drivers protested outside Uber's headquarters calling for higher wages from Uber, and lift and better treatment, they were similar protests all over the country Ramirez drivers simply need to make more money. That stock is not going to stop us from becoming homeless that stock is not going to have that help pay our rent and care for our children. So they need to come up with something a little bit better than that. One academic says the ideal scenario would be for companies to give drivers equity before the company goes public as if they were engineers or product managers designers. A Cinderella Zhang is an NYU professor who wrote a book on gig employment and how it's changing the economy. He says securities law hasn't really caught up with the gig economy. The challenge for the privately held company is that it's extremely complicated to have hundreds of even thousands of people who don't have sort of a strong relationship or an employment relationship or onto credited investors to own sort of small numbers of shares in a private company, but he says he thinks the law will involve to allow private companies to give equity to their part time workers that would be a nice outcome. It would be sort of reflective of the fact that the made important. Tribulations to lake you know, the evolution and success of the company. Now, of course, having stock in a company doesn't mean you'll actually make money when it goes public lift also led drivers by shares when it went public, but its stock price has fallen since its public debut. Some drivers like J crater who also writes about the rideshare industry are pragmatic. You know, I think if you have the right mindset, it's it's not a problem. I mean, this is the relationship we have I am an expense. And they're gonna try and do everything they can to pay me as little as possible when Burgos public this week. It says it will reserve five point four million shares about three percent of its offering for drivers to buy with their cash. Bonuses, anything they don't buy. We'll be returned to the public market. Related links lift reported its first earnings as a public company on Tuesday. And although it gave a generally encouraging report it also held back some information that it used to give investors like the number of total rides and bookings. It had in the previous quarter, which is obviously fairly useful indicator of whether the service is growing, and I mean lift also lost over a billion dollars last quarter, which is more than it lost an all twenty eighteen, but okay, investors were mostly worried about the lack of data lift shares closed at an all time low on Wednesday, but lift did in partnership with Waymo the self driving car company owned by alphabet, which investors do like because they don't wanna see the company get put out of business by someone else's army of self driving cars, although obviously long-term that's not great news for drivers either. Because if the cars drive themselves who needs a human. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace. Tech. This is a PM. Hi, I'm Zach and I listened to marketplace in Arlington Virginia. I think what I appreciate the most about marketplace's their ability to take the economic news of the day issues such as tariffs rate hikes and tax reform cut through the political noise, and clearly and concisely explained not only how these issues affect our country and the rest of the world, but how they impact people like me.

All right, next one Kerzner's just getting started. There's another one right across the street to easy tonight. Is the perfect krizner picks up electric scooters from two companies lime and bird scooters are hot. These companies are both valued at billions of dollars. And they rely on gig economy workers like him to charge their scooters, and it should be in five four three two one beep. Some people charge. Few scooters night, others charge dozens all right? So that's three. So we have. Twelve bucks back in the car. Kerzner puts on his Goto scooter charging song escrow fire next bird. This. Kerzner says that over the last six months, he's made more than nine thousand dollars at the side hustle from the scooter company's perspective Kerzner's, not just charging scooters.

Let's go buddy a few months ago. There was fierce competition to pick up these scooters, but it's cold and windy tonight. And the companies are paying less per scooter than they used to. So there aren't as many rivals to contend with after collecting a dozen scooters and wrestling the last one into position. Kerzner heads home and starts to carry the scooters to his patio.

What's the big deal from American public media? This is marketplace tech. I'm Tracey Samuelson in for Molly would. This week trade talks continue between the US and China. US officials complain that China has long failed to protect US intellectual property rights, a charge China rejects in particular, the US wants China to put an end to what's known as forced technology transfers, that's when US companies have to share their valuable tech secrets with local partners in order to access. China's much coveted market finding a solution has been a big sticking point in trade negotiations and the history of countries sparring over IP issues, actually goes back centuries. Greg Clark is a professor of economics at the university of California Davis. He says in its infancy, even the US took advantage of some stolen tech v was the norm throughout history old ways since the industrial revolution and the British stole a bunch of their technology from the Italians and and turn the American stole most of their textile technology from the British Samuel sleigh. After a British apprentice in textile mill carefully memorized, the plans and set sail from Erica and became the father of the American textile industry and indeed the kind of father of the American industrial revolution. And so how do you think we should be thinking about this today? If those were sort of celebrated figures for the technology that they they brought back home a yeah. No, I think you you all in that perspective what the Chinese are. Now attempting to do is absolutely the pattern of history. And there's actually a lot of debate about whether such property rights hinder or advance technological progress. Yeah. I suppose if your whether or not you think someone's the hero of the struggle depends on whether you're on the receiving end of that technology or whether you're on the theft. Then yes, though, the one thing I should say is that the British act. Actually by eighteen forty two abolished all attempts to restrict the flow of technology out of Britain. They just sort of gave up. Yes. Because by then the Riveria significant equipment manufacturing firms that wanted to profit by the export of the machines that embodied the new technology, and the other reason that the British change their attitude was that the British actually had such an efficient manufacturing system that they actually didn't need to worry about other people getting the technology. But the thing is I think now that is not going to be the case that in manufacturing Chinese labor costs will allow them to undercut America. And so you're not going to be able to say, well, it doesn't matter if they get our technology, we can still actually compete. Greg Clark is an economics professor at the university of California Davis if the US and China don't reach an agreement by March first. Tariffs on two hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese imports will jump from ten percent to twenty five percent. The Trump administration wants enforceable commitments from China on intellectual property and other structural trade issues. But what that looks like for either side isn't yet clear. I'm Tracey Samuelson. And that's marketplace tech. This is APN. Hi, I'm Zach and I listened to marketplace in Arlington Virginia.
