"Carmakers despite Tim having generated no sales revenue as of yet Meantime in General Motors plans to double its revenue by 2030 as it looks to ultimately convert to an all EV lineup and CEO Mary Barra recently said that she expects GM to catch up to Tesla in electric vehicle sales by as soon as 2025 Those efforts include GM's iconic luxury brand we're talking about Cadillac Now you might recall back in September GM open reservations for its 2023 Cadillac lyric electric SUV and after just ten minutes they were gone To find out what sets the first of its kind model apart what the future holds for its gas powered engines and how Cadillac is navigating supply chain constraints and labor shortages in a competitive car market we spoke with the brand's vice president Rory Harvey I think there's lots of different data sources I'm sure that you have access to many of them that extrapolate what is going to happen with EV adoption and from our perspective we think now that the time is right absolutely to put up on the accelerator We have a great portfolio today of ice vehicles but we think now is the time to complement that with switching to EV So Roy I'm going to ask a different question in that Why is it going to take to 2030 Why not sooner especially when you've got a company like Tesla that has definitely at this point is out front and center and has the first mover advantage they're now ranked as the world's most valuable car company by far you've got rivian sporting the second highest market cap among U.S. carmakers despite having no sales revenue yet That's a topic for another conversation So I'm just curious why not try and do it sooner rather than later Is it logistically it's just got to take this amount of time No I think it's basically what we need to do what we need to do in terms of market opportunity with our eyes vehicles what we need to do in terms of EVs So as an example if you looked at the lyric which will be the first EV in terms of luxury crossover from Cadillac we pulled that forward by 9 months So we bought that forward and accelerated it to the back end of March in 2022 That will be followed by the Celeste which will be an ultra luxury brand And indeed without giving the time and away of all of the product portfolio if you look at GM across the board we will have 30 products by 2025 that are EB variants with about 60% of those sold in the U.S. So there is a fairly aggressive introduction of the EVs moving forward I guess the 2030 time scale is the period of time when we were selling the last ice vehicles from the Cadillac perspective But we will certainly be in the market much earlier than that complementing our ice vehicle sales with easy vehicles You know Tim and I talk Rory a lot about wanting our next car to be an electric vehicle Tim lives in the city I live just outside the city In the urban environment you do wonder about okay how the heck am I going to charge this puppy How much of your timing also is thinking about the bigger broader infrastructure problems that I feel like we've been talking about for a few years that in order for EVs to really come you need to have the EV support network to be there as well especially when it comes to charging You're absolutely right Carol I mean that's fundamental And if you look at some of the metropolitan areas there's a big push in terms of infrastructure if you look at some of the legislation and some of the activities that the states are putting in place given that the momentum is really starting to build but it's a fundamental issue in terms of being able to facilitate demand with customer convenience And from that point of view there's a number of things that we're doing whether it be working with our dealer partners to put charging stations in place that we made and announced that the week before last in terms of that Whether it be our mobile app which basically gives customers the ability to be able to determine where to charge which targets are up and running minimum downtime et cetera But it is one of the challenges that the industry faces in terms of ensuring particularly in some of those densely populated areas that the infrastructure is there So again that's part of the reason that at the moment we have the need to be able to satisfy customers from an ice vehicle perspective but also from an EV perspective Hey Rory is when it comes to battery charging stations How much of it is the private sector responsibility How much is it public sector is it a little bit of both I think it's a little bit about I think it's down to be incentives that are available it's down to the distribution It's down to private companies because there's a business opportunity it's down to public I think this one is a team effort in terms of putting the infrastructure in place Hey Rory you know I'm thinking about GM and all in on electric vehicles Cadillac obviously a key part of that component I am curious about in the transitioning especially at a time where we're talking so much about supply chains Are you guys able at this point to get all the raw materials the minerals and things that you need to easily and continue to make this transition and keep to your timeline Yes So I guess there's a couple of parts to that So I will answer it first in terms of relating to semiconductors which is one of the challenges that the global automotive industry is facing today So that has been a challenge throughout the course of 2021 and it's still a challenge today Having said that I would say that we are seeing a better flow of chips now There's been a terrific amount of work that has been done with the supply chain Indeed getting more involved in deeper into the supply chain to be able to secure the right level of supply of chips from the board It is going to continue into 2022 But as an example if you look at North America and our plants in North America we've got the majority of them for General Motors back up and running And indeed as of Monday of this week every single Cadillac plant in North America is now operational So that's step one in terms of getting inventories to recover so that we can fulfill what is very strong customer demand at the moment So we're looking forward to some stability coming during the quarter of 2022 there Then in addition in terms of the materials that are required going forward in terms of batteries again we've made some recent announcements in terms of some of the ventures and infrastructures that we're putting in place to ensure that we can secure the right levels of supply to enable and support the transition as we need to and at this particular point in time there is absolutely no delays to our EV platforms in terms of rollout schedule indeed I mentioned earlier that we're looking to pull the Lyrica hedge by 9 months versus the original plan So we will start producing that vehicle in March of 2022 It's interesting As we move through this shift what is it that I guess is the major risk to it progressing as you hope When you look at your timeline and as you said you moved it up for the lyric But what is the biggest risk to all of this Yeah I think one of the challenges that you've got are not sure if I describe it as a risk is the pace of change at the rate of adoption the rate of infrastructure the range anxiety customers ability to be able to charge et cetera So I think as a number of elements that piece together in terms of digits or I wouldn't say that it's a risk overall in terms of the change I would say it's a time and impact in terms of how aggressive is the adoption rate of EVs going to be So I think it's more in terms of a question as to when rather than if That was kind of like vice president Rory Harvey Your next car an electric one I think so And then we talk about infrastructure especially in the city right Plugging in That's the thing Carol And I got flack for this People who I've talked about this before on our program because I've said it's difficult for people who live in cities who park on streets which is a lot of people people who live in apartment buildings who don't have garages like me Where would we charge it No it's a really good point You have to figure that out It's so rare in New York City to walk down the street and actually see a place where you can charge a car We have a couple of my neighborhood in Brooklyn but they're always being used We got to figure that one out Still to come on Bloomberg businessweek build a bear workshop it's a small cap company

Interview With Rapper, Ruby Ibarra
"Thanks so much for joining us. Ruby johanna hi jan. Thank you so much for having me. it really is an honor for me to be in this conversation especially with asian american pacific islander heritage month coming up. I'm pretty sure you know the conversation that we're about to have is is gonna be relevant to what's been going on in this country. Yeah definitely. we're really excited to have you here. speaking of being asian american. You know you're known around the world as rapper rubio barra you know ruby bar in the belleek. Byron's that's the name of your band and so much of your music is centered on not just your philippine identity but this concept of being a and for listeners. Who don't know what that is. It's it's basically generally speaking of a filipino. Ex pat but there is this sort of larger obligation to feeling the need to give back to your home country or your family because you've left the country and sought out you know better economic opportunities and things like that but you came here when you were really young. At what point did you decide that this was something that you wanted to focus your music gone. And and what is being a buy into you. Those are really great questions to start for conversation to. I answer how. I got to the point in my artistry where i knew that i wanted to discuss or focus on you. Know my background and my heritage. My culture honestly. I don't think that really became a thought until my cirque ninety one album i think prior to that when i was making music a lot of it really involved just me trying to find my voice when we think about identity a lot of it really gets muddled and these thoughts of who am i and how. How do i belong in the space. That i'm in these her constant thoughts that i had in my head even as a young child. I never really felt that. I belonged in the us and at the same time. I never really felt that i belonged in the philippines because i grew up over here and so i think my journey in finding my voice. It's really started in college. I attended uc davis. And even though i majored in biochemistry i took it on myself to take classes that were outside of the scientists and one of them being asian american studies.

Apple and Hyundai-Kia pushing toward deal on Apple Car
"Apple close to finalizing a deal with the honda kia to manufacture an apple branded self driving electric car. Wanna get straight to the man who has the news With exclusive details the lebow fill great reporter andrew it yes it would be an understatement to say that this would be huge early for the auto industry but also for apple when you look at what is possible here the multiple sources who tell me that they are working towards a deal all make it clear that these are talks that have been going on for some time and that they are moving towards a deal now whether or not it gets finalized that remains to be seen. They're keying in on production at the key plant in west point georgia. That's about ninety miles. Southwest of atlanta. It would be autonomous electric vehicle scheduled for release in twenty twenty four. But the people i talk with say look that could get pushed back to twenty twenty five twenty twenty four. They're going to have to start making steps fairly quickly if they're gonna meet that timeline and here's the most important part. It would have apple hardware and software in other words. This would be an apple car. This would not be apple software underneath a key a model. This would be an apple car. They're keenly focused on making sure that the user experience by the way it fits in with the apple ecosystem. That's a big part of this. The georgia plant by the way. It does have capacity available. And there is the key escape. Skateboard hyundai kia has an ev skateboard. But basically think about that as the platform underneath the vehicle it can be adapted depending on what the top hat of the vehicle would be that could be utilized by apple as they're working on this apple car. We reached out to apple yesterday. It declined to comment on this report or the questions we had for them. We also reached out to hyundai kia hyundai kia. Spokesperson declined to comment on the questions that we put to them regarding finalizing deal with apple one other stock or a couple of others. I wanna focus on here general motors. Why take a look at general motors. Well clearly if apple does develop an apple car and gets into this ecosystem with let's say a vehicle that is for robo taxis or for package delivery firms. Eventually it would also be a vehicle that perhaps or their vehicles that perhaps people would buy as part of their own personal buying vehicle. I'm going to buy an apple car. What are the implications for general motors. And all of the automaker's. We talked to mary barra about three weeks ago when some of these i reports were first bubbling up and we asked her this specific question. What does it mean if apple gets into this game. Here's what she had to say. I'm probably not the right person to ask what apple's plans are. We consider them to be a formidable competitor. So that's why we're working with all the capability. We have with our technology to go as fast as we can to To really satisfy in delight the customer in our vehicles and create that relationship and just incredible overall ownership experience. And guys i. I'm sure there will be some questions during the analyst called for ceo. Jim farley about the landscape in terms of competition maybe not a specific question on apple getting into the auto business as an automaker but clearly This is a space that is developing quickly and again we have talked with multiple sources who say that apple and hyundai kia. They are moving down the path towards finalizing a deal for production of an apple car in georgia.
The True Cost of Sustainable Skincare with Tata Harper
"I feel like there's so many misconceptions in the beauty industry really in the luxury industry in general too. But you know Clean beauty is not elevated enough or clean. Beauty doesn't work as well. And i think what's interesting. Is that you kind of saw those challenges. Or you heard those misconceptions and you're like no. I'm gonna change this right like i love that i'm gonna i'm gonna give it a try because enough you know because i think that now what we need is a lot of consumer products that make our life better deal you know not just like superficially better but like really that they They elevate our quality of life. And from that lance. It's what really kept me motivated and really like we spent like five years creating the harper because the formulas didn't exist. No one knew how to use like natural ingredients to preserve or to a mall. Sify or to again or to stabilize those were not like raw materials were used just for like marketing and And there was not a lot of science around like the formulation aspect of natural skincare and took a really long time to make them happen and also formulate from a different point of view because a lot of natural skinner was always formulated with this idea of minimalism and and a lot of like the first gen natural products. They were created a lot. I by the low hus movement remember that movement that lifestyle movement that is being natural so the fact that the product was natural was actually more important than the even that the product worked ben and data no for skin care. Because you only buy skin care too because it works right exactly. Why you don't like by this moisturizer to save the planet like you buy this moisture is great moisturizer and then you have your charities and other things to do other things but But yeah no i was. I was really challenging. It was almost like with the creation of our company. We talent almost every aspect of being a maker of skin-care not only from the ingredients and the formulas but also by having our farm like what you were saying before the farm has been such a special place for us because a lot of skin care is outsource. The majority of the companies are outsource. They outsource almost every piece of their of their Of their business to third parties whether it's the formulation to labs that a lot of times abusing tons of basis and just you know the smell or the color or the incentive vitamin seen our. We're going to add. Hulo renege on jason or you know things like that but you find a lot of companies that have very unique products and formulas that are really unique so for us it was always very clear that we needed to have our own our end and our own formulation Our own chemists and our own lab so that we can really formulate products from scratch like we like doing and that every ingredient has a purpose and also every single one of our formulas doesn't rely on just one ingredient like we're not like on one ingredient type of company where company that by ingredients from all over the world and use them in the you know in different formulas in very high concentrations. So no i mean. I think it makes so much sense. And i love that you guys and your approach is truly like farm to beauty right. I feel like that's such a Sort of a marketing term that you hear thrown around alongside clean beauty etc. But you're literally you know harvesting in growing ingredients on your farm for some of your formulas So can you explain a little bit more about how that process works in terms of You know like organic farming and how you guys are actively working milan. I mean. I think that's fascinating kodaly so just to clarify one thing. We do bring ingredients from all over the world. Sure yeah we bring ingredients from like eighty four different countries. Okay we have like no self and post limit on like we're just gonna talk about vitamins where we are see company we really curate technologies from all over the world whether it's green tag or you know things from tradit- you know from a lot of tradition traditional chinese medicine you're also bringing a lot of and butters from amazon but anyway so we In the farm. There's a couple of things happening so number one. We have a garden where we grow a lot of Not even a lot. We grow specifically five herbs that grow really well in our soil in vermont in our farm which is a clay soil and those are calendar. La barra sweet alfalfa and kolenda and we grow them in our farm in in our organic farm and we make one ingredient that that That we produce at the farm every single month that basically captures all of the oil soluble nutrition from all of those herbs. And the and it's done in a very temperature controlled process that it's very specific and that ingredient that is called our farm beauty complex goes into almost every single one of our formulas but in the farm. We also have a lot of barnes because it was an old dairy farm converted into a skincare farm. Now i love
Guest Teacher Janel Dyan on How to Invest in Womens Leadership in Your Company
"Today. We'll be talking about why in these unprecedented times. Women in leadership are essential to your company. Short-term growth and long term survival gender and racial equality are certainly hot topics of conversation right now but there are some organizations that are ahead of the curve and like me have been focusing on the equality of women and women of color for years and these are my clients women in leadership women on the rise women entrepreneurs and women at the helm of fortune five hundred companies today such so what lincoln and ford motor company and helping them grow as leaders. What i do best over the past seven years. I've worked with females of all colors and varied backgrounds from the bay area to new york. They are not only having a huge impact today but they are paving the way for all future female leaders industries historically dominated by men. And here's what i see. The companies who have made it a part of their core tenants to support an invest in diversity programs for the leadership development of women are the companies who are now today's industry leaders and it's not only for the products and services they provide but more importantly as a brand that people want to work for by from remained loyal to the shifted their measurable for success to include strong corporate culture of innovation employed growth customer loyalty and diverse leadership team who focus on purpose. And not just on the bottom line. They understand that their greatest assets are their employees and they have dedicated their efforts to be a brand that is people focused and purpose driven during our time together. Today we will focus on three lessons. You can walk away with first because women are. Today's largest and fastest growing global consumer companies need to shift their brand strategy to recognize the powerful role that women in leadership play driving economic growth. Next we'll take a look at why the greatest leaders are master storytellers and how powerful story can be and finally will cover some tips for building a culture with equality in its foundation including ways to establish promote an invest in fema leadership. So let's get started less than one. Women are the fastest growing global consumer and it's imperative that companies adjust according to. Brigitte brennan author. Why she buys and winning her business. Women make or heavily influence. Seventy to eighty percent of all purchases across all industries which means women are every company's largest target customer to truly capitalize on this customer trend companies. Must do a better job creating products and services with female buyers in mind. Companies must create a brand that women will buy from advocate foreign remain loyal to the companies who are most equipped to connect with women are led by other women and their leadership results have a positive impact. On company performance. The profits higher margins add more returns for investors leaders such as saffir cats of oracle and mary barra of general motors. it seems like commonsense. But it's actually not common practice. Facts are that only. Eighteen percent of global firms are led by women and according to this year's forbes annual report the number of women. Ceo's running fortune five hundred companies since it just seven point four percent so clearly. There are strong logical ethical and financial reasons to put more women at the helm according to study by mackenzie if we can close the gender gap by twenty twenty five twenty. Eight trillion dollars would be added to the global economy and to put that in perspective that is the size of the economies of the united states in china combined. Right now during covid and racial injustices at the forefront we find ourselves in a global economy with the future unknown. These challenges are now calling for new leadership no longer one of command and control but one of collaboration community one of the biggest actions that any leader can do right now is be transparent and empathetic to their team members and customers because anxiety and uncertainty are heightened during this time of crisis emotional connection on a basic human level between the leader and employee has never been more important than right now a recent study done in two thousand nineteen by mit sought to determine the makeup of the most effective leadership teams and those are the teams with the most women especially women of color as they are leaders who bring a deeper understanding of resilience. Women are also more likely to have empathy for those struggling to deal with change or lack of inclusion become role models for the change that they seek and are willing to share inspirational stories to motivate to embrace change they are in general more inclusive and collaborative making in leadership style which is a combination that continues to prove to be effective in getting companies to move faster in times of change lesson to the power of story. Why greatest leaders are master storytellers. We all love stories. In fact stories are what differentiates us as human beings. It is highly forged connections among each other and they'll trust as a community each stories an emotional journey that reinforces shared beliefs values and vision that we can all relate to from drawings on the walls of cave with stories of heroism folktales. That are full of more lessons to generational family tales. That remind us of our roots. Human beings need to feel that we are part of something greater than ourselves stories. Reminders that through tough times we will come out to the other side stronger wiser and more unified than ever stories. Bring us back to the beginning and remind us of who we are and what we do in stories creek clarity in our purpose and vision to get their. The greatest leaders are master storytellers. Simon sinek author of the power of y in infinite game says beautifully leaders aren't responsible for the results. Leaders are responsible for the people who are responsible for the results. It is during these times of crisis that provide an excellent opportunity for leaders to communicate stories of incredible vision for the future showing empathy advising with humility and providing optimism. For what lies ahead. They also understand marketing at its core is simply about storytelling. and it is the stories. They choose to tell that can differentiate brand as an industry leader communicating the values of the brand with the product and services they sell. I mean who wasn't choked up watching google's tearjerking super bowl ad of a love story that began with a simple question how not to forget. So tying back to what we learn in less than one about women being the largest and fastest growing global consumer with the understanding that stories have power companies must give their products and services a story that women now can relate to and what better way to do that than with women at the helm leading the way finally lesson three building corporate culture with gender equality in its foundation companies with strong female leadership such as new york stock exchange. Pwg and google are continuing to create more equitable inclusive and fulfilling workplaces for all women and the investments are already proving to return tenfold to their bottom line.

Coronavirus Surge Prompts California To Implement Strict Measures
"The situation in california is now so serious. Most of the state is under a stay at home order. Thirty three million people in a state of forty million or impacted by the strict dick strict measures taken since march and this is because hospitals are filling up very quickly with coronavirus patients. Nicole nixon with cap radio joins us this morning from sacramento nicole. Good morning morning so explain how this stay at home orders working because it sounds like it's it doesn't apply to everyone in the state right right so these new orders type. Two intensive care unit capacity. They'll go into effect when an area has less than fifteen percent of its. Icu beds available. And it's not just the bed sitter the issue here at staff to work those beds that are feeling tight too. So the southern california region and the central valley region went under these new. Stay at home orders yesterday when the available. Icu beds there. Dip below that fifteen percent and also given how things are going here. It's expected that the rest of the state will hit that. Icu trigger in the next week. Or two here on some counties are not even waiting. They're just saying we're going to preemptively. Implement this order but before we even have to. Yeah five counties in the bay area said that. They're not gonna wait for their used to get to that. Point here is san francisco health officer. Dr tomasz aragon explaining why unlike previous searches. Every hospital in california is under stress. There is no place to transfer people if we run out of beds. Three quarters of the states hospital beds are currently fool. These area counties actually implemented the very first day at home order back in march even before the state did so. This strategy is in line with how they've been handling the pandemic from the beginning when we all remember california taking some of the strictest approaches of anywhere in the country early on so does it just feel like we're going back in time to march now in california a little bit the these. These new orders are not as sweeping as the march. Stay at home order for example schools. That are already open can stay open on the other hand. Businesses like hair and nail salons movie theaters bars and wineries have to close again restaurants. Have to go take out or delivery. Only in churches have to conduct worship services outdoors retail. Stores can stay open this time but at a very limited capacity and these orders will be in effect for at least three weeks however business owners reacting will. Many business owners are angry. Small businesses have already been through so much this year and some see the ban on outdoor dining and things like that as arbitrary. I've been talking with small business owner rosy barra. She's a hairstylist. In temecula in southern california and she told me that she does not intend to comply with this new round of restrictions. I am not closing. I feel confident to properly and safely. Take care of my clients. None of my clients have rescheduled. None of them. Feel that coming to. My salon is going to be unsafe for them at this time. Barra says that for months. She's been following the health guidelines from the state the county and the state cosmetology board and she says that those things are working so resistant that i can make it hard for the state to enforce this. Yeah well the state doesn't have an easy way to enforce it without relying on local police in some local sheriff's have have been reluctant to shut down individual businesses and in saying they'll go education. I instead so in effect. The governor's counting on persuading people to stay home.

Music from Russian Operas
"Hello I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to classics, for? Kids That's the pollen is from Modesto oxy's Opera Boris, Godunov, today music from operas by some other Russian composers. They call me Kyle Glinka, the father of Russian classical music. You hardly ever see Glinka opera Muslim and Ludmilla, but you hear the overture all the time. Well at least loosely, Ludmila has been performed. That's more than you can say for some operas. Lada flopped twice the first time a Russian theatre s four different composers to collaborate writing a combination opera ballet that Malaysia was never performed. Then rimsky-korsakov who was one of the four composers recycled the music he'd written into a Milonga of his own that Lada lasted all of six performances. If you've been Mada is a funny title. Sergei Prokofiev opera called the love for three oranges. The love for three oranges is about a prince who finds the princess he loves inside an orange one of three oranges. Love is a big problem for the title character in an opera by Tchaikovsky called Eugene on Yagan. A girl named Tatyana in love with you gene on Yagan but he doesn't fall in love with her until it's too late and she's married to someone else the two of them always seemed to be meeting up at a ball. So Tchaikovsky put plenty of dance music including this waltz into his author. Part of Modesto Resorts Skis Opera Boris good enough takes place in a Polish court where they do a Polish dance, the pullen his. Another Russian opera with famous dances in it is by Alexander Barra Dean Borodino was a professor of chemistry who only got to write music in his spare time. His only opera was prince eager in which the prince eager gets captured while fighting the pile-up Ziems. The best known part of the opera is when the Pelosi enslaves entertain prince e core by singing. Dancing. Ardine died before he could finish prints eager. But two of his friends who knew how he wanted it to sound finished it for him. One of those friends was Nikolai rimsky-korsakov whose flight of the Bumblebee is far more famous than the tale of Czar Sultan, the opera for which he wrote it. You can definitely hear a flying insect in the flight of the Bumblebee. From flying bees to dancing pelotons, I hope you've enjoyed this week's music from Russian operas.
Modest Mussorgsky: The Mighty Handful
"Hello welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. The mighty handful may sound like a rock band or a bad babysitting job and the mighty five may sound like a basketball team. But both of those were nicknames for a group of Nineteenth Century Russian composers interested in developing a Russian sound for classical music. Obviously, there were five of them. Mighty handful refers to five fingers. The ringleader of the mighty handful was mealy Bollock, a pianist and composer who wanted to promote nationalism in Russian music in music nationalism refers to a south. That's distinct Taylor country. Sometimes, that's done by using folk tunes, rhythms, or dance forms and a piece of music, but it can also mean including historical characters or legend from a region. While Akira, wrote an overture in which he put pieces of three Russian folk songs. Eventually Bala of became director of the Russian Court Orchestra. But for a while he quipped music and went to work for the Russian railroad in fact, every member of the mighty five held a nonmusical job at one time or another. Alexander Borodino was never a professional musician. He was a professor of chemistry. From the time he was a kid Borodino was very musical but he decided to study science instead he wound up founding the first Russian School of Medicine for women. After he met Bollock. The great cheerleader for Russian Music Borodino. Began composing. But since science and medicine took up most of his time, he didn't get a chance to finish very many pieces. One of the other members of the mighty hand full wound up putting Borodin's opera Prince Ebor into its final form, the man who cleaned up Laura Dean's music and music by quite a few other composers was Nikolai rimsky-korsakov. Rimouski. Korsakov was in the navy when he met up with Mealy, Bollock Kiro and decided that. Should be his life rimsky-korsakov quit the maybe to study composition after teaching himself to compose he wound up as a professor of composition at the new conservatory. In Saint Petersburg Russia rimsky-korsakov was great at orchestration knowing what instruments to assign to which lines of music in order to get the best sound. He finished a lot of pieces that some of his fellow Russians left unfinished and he also rearranged a lot of music some of which didn't necessarily rearranging. The. Last member of the mighty five was Cesar. Has An unusually UN Russian sounding last name because his father was French. In fact, he was a French military officer who decided to stay in Russia after being taken prisoner there while fighting with Napoleon's army. says. We started out in the military too but you guessed it after he met Mealy Bala. Cesar qe became a composer. Even, though he had no Russian ancestors, his mother was Lithuanian qe became a big champion of Russian music just like the other members of the mighty handful.

GM-Nikola Deal in Flux
"Three weeks ago on this show, we talked about Nikola, the electric truckmaker because. On Day, shares of Nikola were more than thirty five percent on the news of its partnership with General Motors. That was a lifetime ago. The deal was supposed to close today. That's not going to happen in terms of closing today and. This seems like a story in Flux Maria because a couple of hours ago I was looking at that. The available information and thinking to myself well, I think I. THINK GM is backing out of this deal. We had the whole thing with Nikola and the founder Chairman of the board resigning immediately. Deleting his social media accounts, allegations coming out and it, and it seemed like. A couple of hours ago. Maybe Chan was just backing off altogether. Now it looks like they might be just negotiating better terms because shares of Nikola were down first thing this morning. then. All of a sudden. They spiked up eleven twelve percent Where do you think this is going? It's really interesting. So Nicola is has ambitious to make electric and hydrogen powered trucks. They want us and lease battering hydrogen-powered semi trucks, tip businesses for anyone who wasn't sure what the company did. So what this deal was supposed to be was GM would get two billion and Meka ls stock paid for with services and various. GM. Parts and components and GM engineer and manufactory manufacturer the manufacturer, the battery and Fuel Cell Versions of Nicholas Badger track. So at that time when they were talking about three weeks ago. which. Feels like a lifetime ago two billion dollars was an eleven percent stake because Nikola at one point, their values over thirty billion, which is larger than Ford and now the market cap is less than seven billion. So that two billion went from an eleven percent stake toe mustard over a twenty percent stake. So it's interesting if they're negotiating different terms, what that will look like going forward because two billion is now a much more sizeable chunk of that company than it was a week or two weeks ago. Yeah I mean just in terms of Nicholas stock three weeks ago on the show we when we were talking about it, it was fifty dollars a share today it's below twenty even with this little bump up. That we're seeing and it just. I want to give the benefit of the doubt Mary Barra the CEO of General Motors and her team. Because she's a very experienced you know for for whatever you think of GM, the company and whatever you think of the stock and from a stock perspective, it has not been a particularly great place to be over the last five to ten years. That being said, she's an experienced professional in this business. So I wanNA give her and her team to benefit of the doubt. I I look at. Everything that is unfolding. And I have the thought that I've had at various points in my life as an investor I look at a either an individual company or just an evolving situation and I just conclude there too many question marks here. There are just there are too many unknowns there too many question marks I kind of want to wait for the dust to settle to see what the new terms are. If the deal actually closes and then see where think shakeout. Yeah I think Nikolas definitely more of a speculative investment since a cart and they haven't actually manufactured car yet but I will say, I, am on the side of I really want them to do. Well, I hope that a deal works out with GM, because I think the future of electric powered vehicles is one that we're moving towards I think it's one that I would like to invest in I. Think Right now betting on them is completely speculative because you have no idea what they can produce but I do think it's important to note that within all of this is shown that there is a. Demand, they had an order for over twenty five, hundred electric garbage trucks from public services they there was an order I over fourteen thousand tracks from Ab Inbev which are planning to use them for long haul deliveries from breweries to distributors. So I think it's important to note that no matter what happens with this company specifically I think this trend is one that's going to have a lot of tailwind. So if I was working at GM and I wanted to be a part of that I, don't think this is a bad option I. Don't think that this deal is necessarily completely a bad idea for GM.

We put them through the training. We also explain the why. Why do you need to wear a mask? Why are we sanitizing? Why are we screening? And all those processes are working for us right now and you know people as I visited our facilities. People tell me I feel safer at work.

This Crisis Changed Consumer Habits? Will it change the way people live? Will it change what they want? I'm just wondering if this pandemic has shifted how you're looking at the future and how you're predicting what your consumers are going to actually want. We we've seen this as an are trying to accelerate our move to electric vehicles, because we think that is the big part of the solution, even though it will happen over a period of time, the sooner we provide affordable desirable. Electric vehicles. We think we can start at transformation, so that's one of the things we've tried to accelerate. As we go through this process, I think there's also an interest with customers wanting to have their own vehicle, not being sure of public transportation, and then we've also been listening to customers and doing customer clinics to has what has changed. What are they looking for in their vehicle and it's early days in that I. Think it will drive some. I think people will still WanNa have vehicles I think a Thomas offers solutions even in in ridesharing, because it's one less dimension of another person being the vehicle, so we see the transformation that we see happening in mobility with special electrified vehicles at autonomous vehicles.

Again when I when I, look at General Motors, we've always said we want to be known as a values. Based Company and so as we have spoken out in the past is has been to make sure our employees understood what we believe in what we stood for. As it relates to our values, and I think it is to a tipping point now where it would be inconsistent with our values, not to speak out, and not to work with others and challenge ourselves and challenge others when I when I said in the note, we want to be the most inclusive company in the world I don't want to. I, mean I want every company to be the most inclusive in the world. Because it's not something we should compete on. It's something we have to dedicate ourselves to do so. To me, it's values based, and you can't stay silent when something is just fundamentally happening. That is so inconsistent with your values you. You have a responsibility to act. That's that is quite a radical. Statement? It really is to say that it's not just about general. Motors being the most inclusive company in the world that you want every company I have to pause there because I. Don't know that I've ever heard that before. I'm curious, Bose. Do you think that's starting to happen? Obviously Mary is a real leader in this. Do you think that more and more people will follow Mary Barra's? Barra's lead I hope that more people follow Mary's lead but I. do think that this is a change. I again I have never felt the kind of movement and the kind of personal responsibility that leaders are taking in this very moment I've never seen this before. Yes, this type of thing has happened a lot. This is not the first video we've seen. It actually makes me quite enraged. When we think about. The countless people who don't have video, but I do believe that there are several things that are adding to this moment, I mean obviously we cannot ignore covid nineteen right, and so when you see something like George Floyd's video of his murder. I think it is shocking. It is shocking and it makes us all. Wake up and so I i. do believe that this is a turning point for all of us. and I've also said that I wish more companies would make more statements like Mary as making. but I do wonder about the some of the mixed reactions. That the getting, perhaps, there are some fear. From. Business leaders to make the kind of bold statements that Mary and others were making You know because there's there's GonNa. Be Mixed reaction. Sometimes people won't believe you. Right right that. I was going to ask you. Mary, about sort of you know we live in such senecal age and I'm wondering if if if you're worried on behalf of other leaders like yourself that that some will view this as sort of flagrant brand opportunism. You know that they are jumping on the bandwagon that they. They're not really that sincere in their commitment and I'm curious how you feel about that. I would say I've had the opportunity over the last couple of weeks to talk to a lot of CEO's and. It's real it there I mean it's a it's a deep concern, and from that comes a strong commitment and so. From all the CEO's that I've talked to I, believe it's it's real, and it's sincere, and they're being very offensive, and I would also say with the the response that I received from the letter we shared at general. Motors not only did we have hundreds? In one day we had almost six hundred responses from our employees on our internal site, but I've had dealers reach out to me. Suppliers reach out to me saying thank you. We believe in this too, and we want to work with you and so. We expected there would be some pushback or some negativity and other than some skepticism, which I think is fair in some of our employees, said. Hey, yeah I, hear you i. read what you said. I WanNa see what you're going to do and I think that's a very fair response, and that's why we're taking steps with the the. Set up the initial donation made to the N. W. CPA in the fact that we're already starting lists as it happens to be my first listening session, there have been other leaders that have already been having. Discussions to to learn and to also provide a a resource to to their employees. Because this is such a difficult time, was talking to one of our leaders today and she said you know people are exhausted on. This issue has been so troubling and so so difficult. I'm wondering Mary how much you've learned. About, how to tackle this challenge through your work on gender equality, GM has been consistently recognized as one of the world's leading corporations in establishing gender equality. First of all. How do you get other people to follow suit? And what lessons have you learned from those efforts that could be applied to creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace and company. Well I would say one of the big lessons I learned. Because as I mentioned you know. There was work going on over twenty years ago. That allowed me to have the chances the opportunities that. Know allowed me to be ready in considered for the position I'm in now. You know as the company in the late Nine time from his went through the bankruptcy I realized as we survived. We had to start again so I think. What am I mindset people have to have is this has never done. This is something of or I guess I. Look for the day when it doesn't need special focus, but I think we're a long way off from having leaders very deliberate about creating a diverse groups diverse opportunities. And and you know it really gets to say I'm an engineer and so what I've had to challenge myself to do is. I think I would sometimes pick people like me because I was like okay well I know I'll get it done, so if I pick someone like me, they'll get it done. And recognizing you get a really narrow slice when you do that, and so we've worked really hard to have our leadership team. Not only have you know I'll say gender race from a diversity perspective, but also experiences other companies and Ben Because that you know very diverse thinking I think. Think is allowed us to make better decisions than challenge each other and so I I really think that we it's something you have to continually focus and and make sure again. It's a business imperative, just as much as you know wanting our next set of electric vehicles, and that's the mindset that we have to have, and that's one of the learnings. I had because I think at some point. People said okay well. We've got that doing well. It's it's a continual focus.

Apple podcasts were wherever you get your podcasts. I everyone I'm Katie, couric and I'm Bozeman Saint John and this is back to Biz with Kadian boast. This week, those we have been really exciting and very inspiring gas. She's such a trailblazer, such an inspiration in the business world I. Know You haven't met her, but you know all about her, so take it away. Those tell us about our guests Mary Barra. ooh, Katie. I am excited. Head about Mary, Barra? She is all of my corporate goals. She is the CEO of General Motors one of the Big Three Detroit automakers. Has One of the largest and historically important companies, so the American economy and I mean talk about male dominated. You can't get more of a swaggering boys club than the car industry that's for sure. And when Mary was appointed bows and two thousand fourteen, only twenty of the fortune, five hundred chief execs were women, and now we're up to thirty seven, which we should note is still impossibly infuriatingly small, but is more women. Take over those executive positions. We really have to thank leaders like Mary Barra. Barra absolutely, She's incredible, and it was such a pleasure to meet her over zoom and have this meaty wonderful conversation you know. She shared her path to leadership, and how she was able to make such a massive company like GM act nimbly in a time of crisis, but of course we had to start in the here and now we have to talk about this letter. She wrote toward nearly two hundred thousand employees in response to our current racial unrest. I've to tell you Katie. I was. Really impressed, you know the company let her express some fiery sentiments that I really haven't heard seen presented by mini. CEO's at all and a lot of people. Hopefully, bose will follow suit and I've got a quote from that letter. She says she is impatient and disgusted. By the fact, that is a nation. We seem to be placated by the passive discussion of why we wanted to know where her head was that when she wrote that letter, and how she plans on turning those words into action, so we started there. Yup let's get into it. I think. There was this sense of sadness and frustration that I had as I learned what was happening and processed it and a human level. It was just unconscionable of what happened. And I'm an engineer. By degree and so I, I'm a problem solver. You know I think we just became very clear to me. There's been to many others that we can't just know talk about why and then you know something else replaces the news cycle in nothing gets done became really important to me that we do something that we find solutions, and we drive for lasting change and I'm really A. Week I'm just passionate about. Really making changes in stop talking. Let's start doing. That is that's a that's so true and refreshing to hear I know that your letter also announced the formation of an advisory board. As you said which has the intention of making GM and more inclusive company in the world What do you think that the company and perhaps like? Yourself and the others who are leading the company How do you actually get their account? You make it a more inclusive company. Because that's really the operative word here you're diversity is one thing. Certainly you know, we can have people of all types of backgrounds and cultures MRIs etc.. but inclusion is what actually makes it. Workable. It's what creates the success. So what? What is it that you intend to do by creating this advisory board? Why can't we been talking about for a while? Now that we WANNA have a culture in an environment where everybody can bring their true selves to work, because if you can be your true south, you can be at your best, and so that's been our goal. We recognize. We have more work to do and so with the. Inclusion Advisory Board. One of the first things we know we need to do is listen. Because we don't have all the answers, and so actually I'm excited because this evening we have one of our first listening sessions with several members of the senior leader team, and we believe we need to listen. We need to talk. We need to learn together. you know as I said in in no? You know listening and talking will lead to the dialog that will lead to change and so. That's one of the areas we need to work on I'm also personally very pleased. That I get to be a part of the Bart a group that is going to work on four areas of the area of from a finance perspective, healthcare perspective, education workforce, which is the committee I chair and Ben Criminal Justice because I. do think we need systemic change, and when you a company like General Motors. We feel a responsibility to drive change within our environment and what we can do, with our dealers and our suppliers we, we have a pretty wide footprint, but then in addition to working with the Business Roundtable and all of those companies I think together we can. Really we can really start to dismantle and change. Systems for the better so again. We have much work to do to build on things that we've already done. We have much more work to do, and we're going to be working both as a company, and then as a collection of companies, it seems to me that we've reached this new era where it's not really. To stay silent on some of these issues. We've seen people like you. Mary, speaking out Jeff's. Basically, told the customer from Amazon that if he didn't like it, you know he could lump it and he didn't mind losing him as a customer, which is a real shift for Jeff Bezos and we see you know people like Ken Frazier the CEO of Merck saying George Floyd could have been him and. I think that that we're hearing from these corporate leaders in a much.

I don't expect people to be saints. I have little problem with the vices, that don't really do a lot of harm. I don't want people to be saints. I want people to be good. I understand all that. The he was awakened were to this issue, because his wife is interest, who works for the criminally insane and found at this proportionate amount of use of marijuana among these people. Is that correct summary? You have it. Absolutely correct. Okay. That's very important that you understand why he even has done this research, and he had a piece in the New York was it yesterday or the day before I try peace in actually my journal about ten days ago. You know, just funny. I read them both every day one one for joy. And one for misery. I won't tell you which I don't want to. But I was wondering, I said to my producer, why would the New York Times publish this? Times credit, they did actually published a piece by me when the book came out in the times, and the journal have have cleverly enough allowed me to put my head in the noose. And, and declare what I think about cannabis now what they have done is reviewed a book by the regular book viewers. But I will say this for the time journal at least, they let me, yes, I agree. Yes. I think that's terrific LA times, these places they will not let me discussed the book, they, they pretend book, not exist, except the bash I we don't wanna talk about the media anymore. Well, no, I do I do actually one second. I missed a couple of words who will not review it. The Washington Post has totally the book, and when they allow somebody to write something bashes is that right? It's an. With the LA times, which is the largest newspaper in the war, just, you know aren't legal cans, legal state in, in the country has simply ignored the book the Boston Globe, which is Massachusetts north, the book these places they end. It's amazing to me, given my credentials as a as a writer of nonfiction that they simply the book, but they have. You know, I never really believed in this constantly internet of the of intellectual dark web, another. They're conservative, intellectual out. There are promoting positions that you just don't hear in the mainstream elite media. But it turns out, this is a real thing. I know is now I'm part of this. That's well, believe me. I know I totally know about it. I'll tell my listeners and other time because of my book that just came out last week, which is one of the bestselling books in the United States, and its, again, same thing happened last year. And it was number two on Amazon was not even on the peseta list, because they don't care about religion and the book is a bible commentary. But anyway, it is what I don't lose any sleep over it. I do sleep over the effects of cannabis, so you have seen and that the scholarly literature. Is that there was a relationship between a pot smoking and schizophrenia and violence? Is that correct? So, so, yes. Yes there, there's a very, very association that really dates back. The very good paper was probably in nineteen eighty seven people were talking about this in the Lancet, which is one of the best, medical journals, the world, that's in Brown. Showing that people who use cannabis in their teens, had had depending on how heavily they use between the two and a six fold increased risk of developing schizophrenia. And then what you have to do when you look at this Japan, make sure you're factoring. In other possible causes for example, we know that schizophrenia has a genetic component to it. We know that, you know, the correct other methamphetamine use can also coast. And so you have to try to account for those things are called contractors and good. Scientists are constantly trying to figure out how you know how to do the research in the best way possible to tease out the effect of the variable looking at but, but once even after you do that. Even if you look at factors other truck upset for complicated many other things that are known to cause or, or increase the risk of schizophrenia, you find very, very strong and clear association between the. Between candidates use schizophrenia. There's, there's other, you know, issues associated with canvas that are less serious. It's still serious oppression and bipolar disorder, which is which is no fun but not quite as severe schizophrenia. So, so we have this clear sociation between canvas Kanter condition. Let me let me throw a wild one out. And I, I wanna say to my listeners it is a wild one. I don't claim anything but I think it's worth asking all of these young murderers, the Colt shooters, I prefer the word, but it doesn't matter these young shooter slash murderers has any studies been done on the correlation between them and, and marijuana or severe marijuana use. You're talking about mass shootings at school. Yes. So so short answer is there. There's some I haven't really anecdotal, for example, nNcholas cruise was a pretty heavy canvas. He, he told the police that after he was arrested Gerald Lautner who shot Gabby giffords and killed six other people in Arizona, with, with a pretty heavy user, the, the, the shooter the policy, murder, the murder in Texas. I believe in twenty seventeen who killed will be twenty eight people and then killed himself in that church. He he's autopsy show cannabis, it did not show. It showed a couple of other dogs, but it didn't show cocaine or methamphetamine being drug of abuse. I believe it was Canada. So, so the problem is I mean it's not probably good. She or these murders still relatively infrequent. And so you can't really draw any fair and I just. I wanted to know if anything had been even analyze. Yes. Sure. Okay. All right. Hold on.
