We bought to get right show. Come on Man die on Boden Aka our height with real world another episode another another avenue to speak truth truth so I know we wanted to nine ain't never think about this world to be real. Go so you some stuff that you wanted to get off your chest last week. I also have some stuff that I wanna get off my chest. It's a lot going on Honestly people are going to hear some stuff in the background. It'll be a little different than I normally normally do. This a lot of creative people around shots going around people editing photos. People are having conversations. I mean it's it's it's good energy so I wanNA use that energy to pour into this so I'm alleged start. I know where I want this to go but you specifically. He told me I was hoping that you will pull up so we could record stuff so what's on your mind. You know man we really you know we really got a one of the biggest things I've just been on. My mind is support. Why because I feel like we've touched on this topic before yeah but I feel like the climate has changed but the dialogue is continuous when you think about when you think about support as we're getting older what was important to you in the past changes and you start realizing you know who this person in who that person is who I need around me. What kind of energy do I need and it's it's when you start realizing and looking and feeling that support you really feel feel more engaged you more inspired feel the love and I think I just wish Murphy Bob took shots at home is over of Blackman. Smile Boy Brian Summers With we love you project. You know projects that are there to change the perception of black men. I mean when you think of a brother with locks on the street the white beater on in a beanie. You might immediately the bank. Oh snap is thug. What do you know I got to be a poet nurse. He'll be a a deacon irreverend but we already have these stereotypes so if we operate in love and looking at people from from a clear perspective you know I think the more we can all benefit because it's not a competition so get so when I talk about support and expanding it so last week me Yogi talked about well something a little similar specifically when we were over by the mirror. You're snapping photos. One of the things he asked was like Oh Unum Sam my my parents come from a background where you're supposed to do certain things and my success might not match with their success happens to be if they worked in the government for thirty years. They expect you to have a job with the same company one family member after the other goes in that successive if you step outside of that maybe you're a lawyer doctor success if you happen to be artistic but let's say you make the same exact amount of money. You're not successful in there is there's no tangible thing that they can say hey. My son has been in here fifteen years at this great. This is how they justify. I think there's a sense of there's a sense of celebrity and grandeur you know when I first went into you know creating photons it was it was like okay. This is dope. I see what you have going on but it wasn't until I got really big clients that were not world known over that people. I know like my old heads. Uncles parents really understood okay snapped life. You're doing something that's on a global level. You know just the fact that able to create to capture. There's no limit to what kind of exposure you from that or or Business Wise. It just depends on your efforts so that's that's a poor comes especially in our culture. Once People See oh snap. You've made slightly thing about the real world people in your close circle or I don't know like real world's pop you get moving numbers but from outside perspective expected when people are looking for social standing by okay how many followers having a what can I see who's out here doing what with it. They don't understand that so in the end. It's not until you eventually get that. One person on the show who is world renowned then all of a sudden these random people are gonna come and appreciate what you've already had in flakes because sometimes it takes that moment but what what's what feels event this whole big support the big support success in the end or the original support from home for people that were there from the beginning so. I'll keep it a buck with you. I think one of the things I struggle with. I don't have a lot of instagram followers especially with me not having a visual visual medium but I can say that you know I'm getting three thousand four thousand streams in that also people don't really look at it that way. It's like Oh you know. Who are you when I look at. It's a presence we don't. We don't really know about you so we don't know that you can have actually have something. That's either impactful or it's good. We just think that you know maybe this is just what you've done and so for me. Here's what the supports for me. I've literally had a circle of friends who I don't ask them to listen to my podcast. I tell them to listen to my podcast in a check in with me every so often y'all. I was listening to something that you did. I think it's dope just tuning in and giving me their time that they don't have to do that. Support the me and that means the world like I'd love for one hundred thousand people to hear episode that I did who doesn't but it means so much more to me that the people that are started with Jeff are literally still here on that journey with me what I'm saying like. It's it's the people that I don't know that retard semi that listen every episode that support because if I don't know you for anything and you take your time and you give me a time. That's something you can't get back. That's that means the world so whether I'm you now is huge as you are and having the chance to work with like these brands that are world renown in people will recognize them and think that made it or if I stay as a small platform former never leaves the DMV frankly yes. I mean it's all about creative expression. So you think your it is a phrase right. It's like be happy with the small winds so are you A. I'm making an impact on a level type person like back at this level no matter like you said if it never reached a bigger audience or when across the country that he'd still be okay because it got to somebody. I'd be okay because I accomplished something that I never thought that I'd be able to. We're two and a half going on three years in. I've never done something this long long in my life that would you know that was optional. You know what I'm saying like having that commitment to stay with something means much to me as any support that I'll ever get so. Let's one of does things backpack rapper in you. Keep putting on albums and music. People don't really see Iraq would maybe that's how it is. I'm cool with that because typically. It allows me to get my stuff with Mike if I'm going through something mentally and my head's not great again. It allows me to get that off so I'm good whatever would got to my win win me. Being as long as I had Yelich podcast will people go to die like many podcasts started something and then you never hear from again. They go ten ten episodes in six episodes in then they stop. I'm like eighty six episodes amber. So what do you do not drive yourself. Mad coming out with this content over and over and over and over again or is that your goal or how do you expand and so that like you said podcast is where some ideas go to die. So how do you then one thirty had the podcast learn how to uh continue continue expand. You know what I mean. I think the most important thing.

"It's five eleven in the morning. Thanks for tuning in this morning for another addition of the opening bell business day getting underway. And it's going to be a busy day in the business world. It is jobs report Friday, we'll see what happens on the stock market as well after another up and down mostly down day yesterday and more trade concerns. We're going to talk about it all this morning. Paul Nolte is here for our Friday edition of the opening bell from kings, you asset management in Chicago, Paul, and I will get into some of the discussion of market news market overview. We'll also talk a little bit about the jobs report later today, and he'll be first up this morning. A little bit later in the program. Brian summers will be here from skiff dot com. Brian has been speaking with the CEO of Southwest Airlines, and Brian will share some of what that conversation entailed, and what's happening at southwest these days and all of that is coming up at about five. Forty on the opening bell this morning, but first let's begin on the WGN associated big market. Where futures are pointing toward a week. Open on Wall Street a little bit later this morning with the Dow Dow futures off nearly a third NASDAQ futures off nearly a half a percent s&p futures are off about a third as well. Dow futures down ninety one points as we look around the rest of the world this morning. Markets are generally higher in London. Germany and France in London by about a percent and three quarters and in Asia markets are generally mixed. The Nikkei is going to finish the day up. The Hang Seng down about a third. The Shanghai is up just a fraction and oil is trading at about fifty one fifty five a barrel, which is up about a tenth of a percent yesterday on the stock market. The Dow dropping nearly seven hundred points at one point during the day, but coming back to recover some of that at the end of the day only finishing off about seventy nine point. It's concerns again about international trade of investors. This morning's we mentioned Dow futures are a little bit lower economic reports today include the jobs report for November analysts forecasting somewhere around one hundred ninety thousand jobs. The big question is how is trade impacting all of this? Let's bring in Paul Nolte this morning from kingsview asset management right off the bat to kind of get us up to date Paul yesterday. What a ride from seven hundred points lower to back to seventy nine just down seventy nine points. That was a pretty good comeback. But can we keep it going today? That'd be the big question. And really when you look at it when we take a look at how the markets reacted yesterday. We actually like to see the markets do poorly early in the day because it tends to be a reaction to whatever. The overnight news is in finish strong, which is certainly did yesterday. We're seeing a little bit of weakness. Here this morning, we'd like to see the market finish strong at the end of the day today. Very different than what we saw earlier in the week where the markets opened up Monday four hundred points higher in finished significantly lower on the tail of the g twenty meeting between Trump and g that commentary out of it was everything went well until Monday when everybody took a look at the reports that commentary afterwards, and we're very disappointed in what really didn't happen at that dinner. What what is the feeling all this? What do you think are the reason we're I don't even think back to square one? We may be zero point with trade in certainly all the events this week point to the fact that there were no closer to a trade agreement with China than we were a week ago a month ago, three months ago. In the markets are are taking very poorly because certainly we rallied on the hopes that were starting to make progress. And and eventually we'll have a deal the comments this week. They indicate that we're really not all that close at all. There's also the story. Two of the executive with wall way technologies arrested in Canada. Is is the situation that shaping up there? We're going to arrest one of your executives and force you to the table to negotiate about trade is that what's happening to certain extent. You could look at it that way, I mean, why is the number two producer behind Samsung of all kinds of electronics. They've been at the heart of a lot of some of the issues that we are accusing China of doing in taking technology, and proprietary information in using that selling it to Iran and Iraq against law. So there what the US is accusing the company of is illegal activities, and breaking trade agreements that are in place. So that that's really the heart of what what the the reason for the arrest of us. You can look at it very deeply and say, yes, this is one of the strong arm tactics. But the practicality is they were breaking the law, and this is an opportunity to to kind of bring bring a lot of this to ahead. And that's really the heart of the discussion with China is the technology proprietary information. Yeah. The Washington Post and Wall Street Journal says that this tech company this one this woman, specifically tech company under investigation for an alleged scheme to use the global banking system to dodge US sanctions against Iran. It feels like though, there's all kinds of shady activity that happens in the world of business like it or not. China could come back and arrest one of our people now, right? Under under what law in what did what was broken? And that's really the discussion here. Somebody made the comment that it would be this is the equivalent and given her position she is the daughter of the founder of wow way. So this would have been like arresting Steve Jobs daughter who happened to be the CFO of of apple that level. I don't know if we get to that tit for tat you arrest one of ours. Well, one yours. It's going. But again, this has created a much bigger rift between the US and China that unless we can get some people to the table and start discussions will continue to be very fractious. And certainly no help to either economy. How much does the Federal Reserve on interest rates potential decisions about that way into what we're seeing in the markets as well a lot. And that was really what attributed the gains that we saw from mid morning to the close yesterday that huge rally that we saw the expectation now is that the fed may not raise rates, but maybe one time next year. And even that is maybe a thirty percent chance. The expectation for a rate increase in two weeks has come from nearly one hundred percent to about sixty percent. And the thought is that, you know, maybe the economy isn't doing so hot inflation, certainly not an issue with a lot of the reports that we've seen it. So inflation is is not looking to be a problem. So there's not that reason to raise rates the flip side of that though is if the fed is not raising rates in the economy can't all be that can't be all that strong. Which means the corporate earnings may not be all that good going forward in that should ultimately put downward pressure on stock prices. The fed doesn't raise rates or does not cut rates or leave rates alone. If the economy is going full bore Paul we're going gonna continue this conversation with Paul Nolte this morning from kingsview asset management in Chicago. We'll bring into the conversation. Today's jobs report and some other economic data from the week. But first we need to take a quick break here in the opening bell at five nineteen to update WGN traffic.

"This week, including news on the seven thirty seven investigation from Indonesia and how it's impacting the United States and food on airlines. Let's bring in Brian summers. This morning is he's the business editor for Skift dot com, and Brian is with us via Skype from Los Angeles. Brian let's begin with the seven thirty seven investigation in Indonesia, the lion. Aircrash Boeing and the FAA now have issued bulletins about this year, the United States sure as people probably remember on October twenty ninth lion air and Indonesia. Low cost airline had a crash on a seven thirty seven. Max it killed one hundred eighty nine people and we've learned a little bit more about what happened. Investigators in Indonesia have said the plane's computers may have commanded a steep dive of the airplane. So that computers may have essentially forced this crash. And from what they're saying. It sounds like the airplane may have thought it was in a stall. Of course, that was incorrect, and then an automated system, which didn't want it to be in the stall would have commanded it to dive to regain speed, according to Bloomberg and some other outlets. There may have been a problem with something called the angle of attack sensor on the aircraft. And I guess this had been replaced the day before. So as you mentioned Boeing has issued an alert to its customers and those customers in the United States for the seven thirty seven backs include American United and southwest. And Boeing said, basically, you know, we know that this could happen pilots are trained sometimes the airplane wants to do certain things in auto pilot, mode pilots can overrule that apparently it's not that difficult. But they have to know what they're doing. The FAA also was set to issue an air worthiness directives. So all that really does. It says say, you know, going had this idea airlines were probably gonna follow it anyways. But now they have to follow it and just a reminder to people this is a brand new airplane, essentially, the first one came out in twenty seventeen it is still a seven thirty seven. But it is very updated version with lots of new technology. And so it'll be interesting to see what happens here, if maybe if technology fails or something happened, we we just don't know at this point. But it is interesting to see this airworthiness directive. Yeah. And so in layman's terms, really, I think just to sum summarize, it basically pilots can get familiar again with this system in this particular device. So that they know what to do in case this happens. Exactly. Yeah. Brian. Let's talk about another story that I find just absolutely interesting. How airlines? No. How much food they're going to need for each flight? This is a cool story that you wrote about just how sort of prepared the airlines are but not so much in a way. You want a certain sandwich or salad and the airline is out of it. And you get very upset hate to say it, but often that's by design one of the reasons is it's very hard to keep food fresh on an airplane. And so at the end of every flight mostly the US carriers are throwing out everything that had been cold. So you're salads sandwiches, your things like that. They really don't want to throw out that food right because that's cost going into the carbon. And so they're doing their absolute best to sell everything. Of course, they fail at that lot. But at least they're trying. So that's why airlines run out. You know, it's twenty eighteen and I've been talking to a lot of airlines about this. And a few of them have data scientists and data scientists are hired to fix problems like this. So I was dealing with a UK airline European airline called EasyJet. They put their data science team on this. And they found that on average flight they were throwing out three pieces of fresh food at the end of it. Freia flight and over the course of the year. That's a lot of food that they were throwing out. I think they said eight hundred thousand fresh items. Airlines are trying to get much smarter about this little bit different with drinks because obviously drinks are perishable. You can carry twelve extra cokes. And you know, you just use them for the next flight, but twelve extra cokes add up in terms of weight. We know that weight means that airlines have to carry more fuel fuel is expensive. And that's the type of thing that adds up across six thousand flights a day as well. For the data people that are trying to get a handle on this. It's not as simple as it sounds because as you write in your story, you may have somebody who's on a mid west flight that wants a coke in a burger and somebody on the Los Angeles flight who wants water and kale salad. So there are individual tastes of people come into play here too. Don't they? Absolutely. So, you know, as you say, I live in Los Angeles, and we have fun with this. But apparently, the stereotypes are true. At least according to jet blue people on flights to Los Angeles are drinking a lot less coke. And a lot more water. Another thing that every airline tells me, it's kind of hilarious is they sell far more alcohol on flights to Las Vegas than anywhere else. And so Lou has a pretty standard way of catering the airplanes they've just decided that fishing is best standardization is best. And basically every flight is going to have the same makeup of drinks. They try. By doing that with Las Vegas. And after a while they learned you know, what we can't disappoint these people. We cannot run out of beer every single time. So Las Vegas is an outlier and it gets different catering than everywhere else. Brian. There's another story that we were following here. In Chicago this week about gogo. They reported earnings over the past week and not so good in terms of how they're faring these days. Yeah, go go has had a tough time over the last few years. I think people remember that Chicago based gogo was really the first company to put a sustainable wifi on airplanes, American Airlines and delta had it has recently is about two thousand eight and two thousand nine, but we're a decade later now and gogo has fallen behind a little bit the technology that they used early on was something called air to ground at wasn't a satellite based system. People know that it was slow. It wasn't always reliable and people blame gogo for this. It probably wasn't entirely go-goes fault. Gogo could've moved to satellite earlier. But airlines are their customers. And I don't think that and twenty twelve two thousand thirteen twenty fourteen all airlines were convinced that they needed a high speed internet on their planes. Now. Of course, it's twenty eighteen people expect wifi to be exactly the same on the airplane. As it is everywhere else, there's some technological reasons why that's very difficult. But a lot of airlines are moving toward that. And I wrote this week that gogo had had American as I mentioned as a customer for a long time American is still sort of a customer, but they've move planes to a gogo called bias at. They might be a little bit faster. They might be a little bit more reliable, and that's hurt. Oh, go after initially quite a bit. All right. Brian good conversation. We'll see you again next week.
