A highlight from Unveiling the Allure of PK Lures with Curt Reeff
"Fish on! Hey, Radcast is on! And welcome to the show, Mr. Jim Zumbo. Gentlemen, I am pleased to be here and I use that term loosely when I say gentlemen. Al Winder. Just want to welcome you to the show. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. Hey, I'm looking forward to it. Nothing makes me happier than you'd be talking about. Hailing from Wisconsin, Janna Waller. Thanks so much for having me. It's Radcast. Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. Powered by Bowspider. Brought to you by PK Lures and High Mountain Seasonings. And now, here's your hosts, Patrick Edwards and David Merrow. Welcome to another episode of Radcast Outdoors. I'm one of your hosts, Patrick Edwards. And I'm David Merrow. It's good to be back in the studio and today we're because we get to have one of our sponsors on the show technically too because you're here as well. We get to have one of our sponsors on the show and of course one of my favorites just because I love the fishing side so much. So, Curt Reef, owner of PK Lures, welcome to the podcast, man. Hey, guys. It's always exciting to follow what PK Lures is doing because they're always innovating. Pat O 'Grady and the team that Curt has, they're always coming up with ideas and they're testing out things to help you catch more and bigger fish, which is one of the reasons I use PKs all the time. I'm a bigger fly fisherman. I always have been ever since I was young, but I have no problem picking up a rod and reel. I have no problem putting on bait. I have no problem grabbing a rifle when it's rifle season even though I'm a bow hunter, right? I don't discriminate. However, there's a couple rivers here in Wyoming that I tried fly fishing and tried fly fishing and asked the locals and asked the guides and asked the shops and got the flies and beat that water up and Patrick takes me down there and we throw a PK on and I'm killing some big trout, big fish, and having a blast doing it. He's working on converting me to typically the rod and reel and the fly rod now are always in the truck. And they're both great, but it is really cool. PK is always doing some cool stuff and I have a long history with PK, but still I got to say one of my favorites is the flutter fish. I catch fish everywhere on that thing. And guys ask me, me personally, friends, listeners of the show, and they, specifically the other two sponsors, which is High Mountain Seasoning and PK, they're like, you're paid to use it. You're paid to talk about it. You really like it. I'm like, I've told them several times. If I wasn't affiliated with him, I'd be using High Mountain Seasoning and just seeing the difference in putting any PK on, especially the Red Dot Glow, wherever we go, charge that thing up with a flashlight and catch some walleye at night. It's a blast. Yeah, exactly. So Kurt, it's really cool to have you on the show. Thanks again for sponsoring the show. We certainly love our PKs and we're using them quite often because we like to get out on the water. We're transitioning into that hard water season and PK has been known for a long time for the ice fishing gear. And so I was just wanting to have you on to talk about what's new and what's coming. But first, I think it's really cool for our audience to get to know you a little bit. So Kurt, tell us a little bit about where you're from and how you got into fishing. Yeah, I don't know. I'm a redneck country guy from North Dakota. I don't like being indoors. I got to be outside. That's what got me into this stuff. I graduated from this area. I'm out of Lytton, North Dakota. We're just north of the South Dakota state line. We are located on the waters of Lake Oahe. It's the heart of the Missouri River. It goes from down to the Mississippi. There's Lake Oahe, Lake Francis, Lake Sharp that all look up to it. We fish a lot of like structure, a little bit of everything. And right now there's still a good live bait like going on. These fish that we are targeting right now on the Lake Oahe portion are starting their fall migration from south of Mole Ridge down by Akaska, here in South Dakota. They start to transition to move up north around this mark where they're going to spawn next spring. We just did a big fishing tournament here on the Missouri called the Big Muddy. That was about two weeks ago. From then until now fishing has changed. There's been a good bite around the River Bay here. This last week there's been a ton of boats out. People are getting out. I'm looking to get down next Monday just to test out some different stuff and see what's going on. But if these fish keep migrating north, ice fish should be great. But yeah, I've got a construction business on the side that we do roofing gutters and siding. And as I spend my winters off, that's what got me going into PK. I met Pat here a couple of years ago. We took him up to Lake Whip and I was looking to do something as an investment I wanted to do. I had some ideas I to wanted do. And I ran him by Pat. I'm looking at maybe getting out of there. So we worked out a deal within a week or two. I basically bought the company. But from then PK started in 2009. Pat did a great job with it. He didn't have a lot of social media, internet skills. It was all basically word of mouth. Whatever he did, it was just word of mouth. I got into it and I'm not much better than Pat. I don't know a whole lot about computers and stuff, but we've been just testing out some new stuff. We started that ice fishing company. I fished the National Walleye tour competitively in the summertime. This year I got busy with my other job so I didn't get to do the whole schedule. I'm looking forward to doing the whole schedule at the end of the next year. We start out in Lake Erie and I'm actually going out there here in a couple of weeks to test out some new products. Now I really get an head start on pre -fishing. I'm just going to get out and do one more big open water trip, I guess. I'm going to be meeting my dad and brother out there. We're That's awesome. Sounds like a lot of fun. And one of the things that I've always enjoyed over the years is seeing some of the ideas that Pat has come up with. And I know you two collaborate quite a bit and Tim Jenny and all the guys. I'm like, what are we going to come up with next? It's going to be the new big thing. And I know the Ridge Rattler has been an important part of my arsenal over the last year and a half, two years. And I see that you're coming out with a smaller version of that for ice season, which is really exciting, especially for those of us like me who love to hammer the walleye and the trout through the ice. So can you tell us just a little bit more about that product? Yeah, being a competitive angler, I got a tie on a PTA, whatever I'm doing or for the pizza purpose of building a tackle company. I can go out and use what actually works and do as good as everybody else. But the idea was what PTA we're trying to do our own thing. We're trying to be unique in and making something that's not out there yet. If you go, I'm looking at something you think what's it's already been done. What can we do to make it better? Anything different with the PTA Ridge Rattler? We took our crankbait. We have what's called a Ridgeline Gen 2 crankbait. It's got ridges on the outside. Those ridges give it a different vibration as it travels through the water. And if you want to trigger fish, you basically need three elements. You need noise, flash and vibration. If you can get one of those elements into something that's probably going to catch fish. Although, a bare hook will catch fish. Don't get me wrong. You don't always have to have something pretty and crazy out there. It can be very simple. But we took that design of the PK Ridgeline crankbait and downsized it into a lipless crankbait. In doing so, I like to use a lot of lipless cranks. Like I started off with Live Target and those are very light. They're hard to use during open water because they don't have a lot of direction of going down. They kind of jig and they do their thing. It's a cool product. They almost got some cool stuff with the light. They just don't drop fast. I was looking for something I can use for open water and ice fishing. So what we did, we added extra weight to the front. We called it a weight forward design. By doing so, that creates a fast drop alert. And we kept those ridges on the side. Those ridges cause vibration. When I'm out there jigging it or ripping it or throwing it back to me, I'm going to jig it up. And as I jig it up, I can feel vibration in my rod. That vibration lets me know that alert isn't followed up. It's actually working. And as it's doing that, it's triggering the strike. The idea is you want to rip it up, get it to vibrate and let it swim down and sink and hit the bottom. It's going to stir things up. But if it's a great lure for open water, cast like a bullet. We use it a lot up in say Devil's Lake and Sakakawea or Castle of Weedlines. Perfect lure for up there. Doesn't matter if it's windy out or not, you can cast that. Where some of the other ones you just can't cast into the wind, it's too light. But it works great for ice fishing, great for open water. And then this year we come out with three new products. The ideal is we're going for the Finicky Bite. We're downsizing things on the Ridge Rider. This one here we come out with, it's called the Mini. I didn't see it or not, but it basically weighs just under a quarter ounce. And we already have a quarter ounce one, but this is about half the size. Some of that weight, it's just a nice fast dropping lure. It's got smaller hooks on it. It's designed to catch crappie and perch and all this. But when we were testing it up in Devil's Lake last year, it isn't just up in Devil's Lake, but we have a bunch of areas down here where we have nice walleye and nice perch that share the same water. So you can be targeting perch for an hour and next thing you'll get a six ball walleye come. So this lure is great for that because it's got the small hooks on it for the perch crappie. But when a walleye bites it, it doesn't just nibble on it. It basically inhales. If you're going to use this for a walleye, bring fires with you because they're going to have to try on a small. Just something cool. And there's a lot of similar products out there, but the big difference on this, it's the weight forward design and the ribs. It's going to vibrate and it's going to have a fast drop with the other one. Just don't ask. Yeah. I've fished before you guys came out with the Ridge Rattler, I used some of the smaller lipless cranks and they just don't have the weight. You were talking about those like the rattle trap is one I think about. It was okay, but I can cast the PK Ridge Rattler almost twice as far. It's going to dive deeper. Yes, much deeper. And it's fun. I took it last year out off of this. We have this gravel point that would drop off and I was running that Ridge Rattler right up, right up that gravel drop off and just catching walleye after walleye off that drop. And I've noticed those predatory fish. They really want to be low in the water column and watch that bait fish. And when that bait fish is getting close to the surface and close the bank, that's when they want to run up and strike and eat that thing. So if you can mimic that where, where bait fish are, you know, running away, but they're running out of basically maneuverable room, that's when those big fish are like, okay, I've got you. I'm going for it. And they can corral you. Yeah. And Kurt, I was going to say those smaller ones are going to be really awesome for trout here in the West because a lot of our lakes, we have predator and believe me, they are predatory brook trout, splake, browns, fishing that smaller version through the ice and mid winter is going to be great because some of those bigger ones sometimes turn them off, right? Like it's a little too much for them, but downsizing a little bit, I think is going to be just killer for the trout through the ice here in Wyoming, Montana, and the Western States. It's going to be fun to put them to use for sure. Well, one key element on catching fish is that I can be using a Renway dinner devil, right? And it's, I can have one size and it just doesn't work. Sometimes you just go to a smaller size. That's all you really need to do. You can have the right color and everything else, but sometimes it's going to a smaller size. It's all you need to do. So that's why we come out with this mini rig browser, just a different option of what already works great. Yeah. Just as a business owner, what are some tips and tricks you found? You have two companies you've talked about you're running. You've got your competitive fishing. What are some things you've done to bring balance into? Cause obviously R and D new products, bringing that to the market. I know personally what is behind that and the amount of energy work, stress, strife goes into launching a new product, but you're also running another existing company. And then you talked about, you're getting to go do competitive fishing, which is your kind of sounds like your bread and butter, what you like to do. So how do you balance all this to keep a holistic schedule and keep you motivated to keep producing new products? Yeah, no, that's a great question. I don't even know where to start. How do you balance not just one job, but basically two. And for one, you gotta have a good foundation at home. You gotta have a good support group. You gotta have good friends and family that help you out. I can't do this on my own. There's no way. I probably talk to Pat once a week. You just kick around different ideals, but then there's the financial part of this too, where it just, in this story, you got a couple million dollars worth of product, which we're just sitting on, waiting to go. And some of it sells better than the other stuff, but to be a weird tiny company we're competing against Rapalas and Berkleys and Northlands that we're not there, but hopefully someday we'll, we'll get a little bit closer. I was just uptown on the other day at Shields in Bismarck and what started out being just a two by two area of PK is we always got an eight foot section up there right now. So that's a big store. That's a good store for us, but it's not one of our biggest. Hopefully every year we keep gaining tech space. It all starts with having a good support group and my other company is doing very well where we can take some money out of put in with something new. Like we talked about earlier, we come out with some different stuff this year. We're also an open water company. I got to keep coming out with Oakland water products. And I think we're on the right track. We've got stuff that's unique again, and then I can catch a fish, but trying to balance everything. Yeah. It's a chaos sometimes. There's nothing worse than being a competitive fisherman. That's probably the most stressful job you can have. So that's going to keep moving forward and doing the best we can. I picked this one up the other day and as an entrepreneur, business owner, if the things you do in your downtime don't revitalize and re -energize, you're not going to make it very long. It's just, you know, it sounds like fishing, even though it causes some stress, it's your getaway from the fishing lure company, right? Yeah. No, I just love the outdoor part about being a competitive ranger. If we get to go somewhere and we'll be up in Green Bay, we'll be on Erie. This August here, we took a couple of net views off the port packing. We just changed trout, lake trout. That was a blast. If you want to go to a cook catch 25 to 30 inch wakers, four pack is it, and it's only six hours only, but it's six hours from us. And we ice fish big in the last mountain, plus all around here. Going to the different bides of water, you think it's a little vacation, but it's really not. Everywhere I might go, I pick up different things I need to do, where I do with DK, where it's different colors, different bides of water, fish react differently to certain things. So as we're going around ice fishing, open water fishing, I'm picking up things. I might go to somewhere to just tank and just do terrible, but yet I picked up some skills there or I learned something new that I can take somewhere else. So it was very beneficial to actually go to this event. It's just, we're always learning and that's something we got to do to keep things moving forward. I was going to ask you this later in the podcast, but I think I'll ask it now is if you're talking to somebody who's looking at the market and looking at different options, so you talked about Northland, you talked about Berkeley, Rapala, all those big companies, and then PKs, tell them just if you were to tell them one thing about why they should buy a PK, what would that be? What is the one thing you'd say, this is why you got to have PKs, this is why you should try this? I'm not one to say that PK is a catch -all. It isn't. Should PK be in someone's arsenal? Why not? We've got something for everybody, water, we've got something for every water type, almost every species of fish. We're a North Dakota, better known, why not give it a try? I know some guys are stuck on certain things, that's the hardest thing that this little industry is to get people to try something new. A lot of older guys have a talk box that's full, right? They don't have any need or any desire to buy anything new. They've got what works, they've got what's got them their biggest fish. We're targeting the younger generation, where we sponsor the high school fishing league in our state here. It's basically like, you know, the bass circuit, but we try to target, or we try to cater to the younger generation. That's the guys that have a tackle box that's empty, they're looking to fill it up, and they're more eager to try it, and they might not have as much experience on the water, so if we can get them a PK in their hand and they can catch their first big fish on it, they're hooked. And that's a lot of guys' big mistake, is that they're not willing to try something new, where they might try a certain crankbait, where they might try a particular crankbait that they like, and they'll put that crankbait on for six, seven hours, and if they don't catch a fish, they'll just, at the end of that fishing trip, they'll say the fish just didn't bite. That probably isn't the case, because they were open to try something new. It can be a benefit with something new, and I would say try it, you got something for basically everybody. Yeah, and I would echo that for sure, like this summer we were, I took my family up to Keyhole, and I did a podcast on that, and my son and my dad and I, so it was three generations of boys in the boat, and we wanted to go out and get after the walleye. The wind blew for a couple of days, where we couldn't get out to where I knew the walleye would probably be, so we focused on crappie and pike and other things, and then when we were able to get out to where the walleye were, that PK Dakota Disc was awesome, and my dad's kind of that older guy you're talking about, Kurt, where he's 80 years old, and he has the one thing that's always worked for him. He's got one of those crawler harnesses that Northland made that he loved, and Ben's on the other side of the boat with this PK Dakota Disc out fishing grandpa, so that was pretty cool. He was having fun, he's catching fish after fish, and we were done pretty quickly. It didn't take very long once we could get out to where they were at, but that Dakota Disc shines, and that PK Wobbler, a lot of your open water stuff, man, I'm just like, you have as a fisherman, you're like, okay, it's a crawler harness. It's not just a crawler harness, and what's really cool is, for me, I've been able to put a lot of fish in the boat this year using that, and I was going to tell you this story too. I have a nephew, he lives in like the Denver metro area, right, so real busy part of Denver, doesn't go fishing, mostly plays video games. I had him come up here to Boyson Reservoir with me, and we went out, and we were pulling a PK Wobbler, and I like the one that's got the pink with the kind of silvery look to it, and we were using that, and we were, seriously, we were going about a half a mile an hour to three quarters of a mile an hour, and about three foot of water right off the edges, some weeds, and some kind of dirty water, and we had our limit in 45 minutes. It was so much fun, he had a blast, and so I would just echo that, why not try something different? It is fun to, especially in the summer, you don't have to use the same crawler harness you've been using for 25 years. You can try some of these new things that give off a different vibration, a different flash, have a little different action to them, and they work really well. Thank you for putting those out, because they certainly helped us this summer quite a bit. That PK Wobbler and that Dakota Disc, and go over some cool products that pull on live beads. That's all I ever did. Back then, there was a Colorado blade, and there was an Indiana blade, and you would put on different beads, different colored beads, different colors, and just mix and match until you got something that was this cool. When Pat first designed that PK Wobbler, it was basically out of a piece of balsa wood, and he had filed that out, and there's one side that's flat, one side's round, and when we tested it, it was the rounded side, which is the opposite side that it is now. It's the rounded side, it's your fishing pole, and that just wobbled back and forth. Probably went about 20 degrees, that you sped up, it just wobbled faster, and you go, oh, that's cool. It's a float that has action, so let's just call it the PK Wobbler. It just made sense, but then when it goes into production, it goes from balsa wood into fork, and it totally chunks the action, and I panicked, because I got this piece of foam back, and I think I was out in Green Bay or somewhere, and I was just putting some on, and it basically wasn't doing anything. It was like, pulling around a box, and I'm like, God, I got a lot of these, I don't know what I'm going to do with them. So we peed out around, and I got this idea, let's just flip it around, so now we have the part that's flat, that face of the fishing pole, and that turned it into a multi -directional floating spinner. That was by accident. Now we got stuff that's in multi -directional, multi -directional. Whoever thought of that, I wasn't thinking of that, but that's what it does, and we got the patent for that, and that's ours, when it all happened by a lot, but as a kid growing up floating spinner, I thought, how else can we do a spinner? It's been done before, and then after, I ended up sitting, and then we kind of worked together to make what it is, but that PK Wobbler, I cashed two checks on the National Walleye Tour with it, plus a bunch of other checks of fishing, different other fish tournaments, but what a cooler. I think it does better in mid -summer, more on the Great Lakes. It just covers a bigger body of, as it spins, it displaces water in a bigger area, where say you go out to Lake Erie, it's always big blade, big stuff, right? As it spins, it's covering an area that's bigger than an actual spinner would, if that makes any sense, and then my dad and brother were out here two years ago, and they were messing around. When you go up here, it's always crankbaits, big stickbaits, reef runners, bandits, baglies, those, you're graded out there, so if you're going to go to Erie, if you're going to drive 14 hours, it's going to put the whole world up, it just makes sense. Why do you want to go out there and mess around with something that probably isn't going to catch a fish, when you only have a couple days to fish? So they went out there, and they're pulling big big bait bandits around, and then my dad being sad, he puts on the PK Wobbler in front of it, or whatever, let's see what it does. That first day, they went out, they've had a one pull, my dad outfished my brother like five to one, with a wobbler in front of a six -bait bandit, right? I don't know if it turns it into a scatter wrap, where it's got a little different action, or something, but by the end of their trip, they had a wobbler in front of every bandit, so that was just super cool. That's why we're going to go out there next week, we're going to play around with this some more, and we're going to put wobbler in front of cranks, and then we have a different rattle float coming out next year, we're going to play around with that, and then we got a Kaleidote we're working on for next year, and we're going to play around with that, and see what comes of it, but that PK Wobbler is super cool, we pretty much sell them all year around, even in February, we got wobbler's going out the door, which I think is just neat, and then that PK decoded this, it's just a round disc, about little, about a quarter, we got the idea, that's the full flapping around, it just goes side to side, and it causes vibration, it's kind of a swimming action, killer lure up on Devil's Lake, I don't think it goes by a fish that it doesn't catch, it just really does very well up in Devil's Lake, Lake Oahu out here, I think, I think almost anywhere I've ever put that on, I've caught fish, super cooler, deep, doesn't cost a lot, but if you want to tie your own, we have all the parts, you can buy them online, and you get a pack of 12 discs, very effective lure, and the get up and done often make it different, and we did it again with the PK decoded disc. Yeah, like I said, it worked great for me this summer, but I want to go back to this, you've got some new micro stuff coming out for this winter season, besides the Ridge Rattler, can you talk about those other two products, because I think those, especially around here, because we've got, we got the trout that I know will eat them, we've got the walleye, the crappie, the perch, all those different things, just highlight some of those new micros that you got coming out. Oh, this starts out now, about two years ago, I fished, called the NAIFC, I think it's still having a lure, but it's basically a special panfish ice fishing circuit, where they target bluegills, the area where I'm at, we don't have any bluegills, I don't, I think I caught my first one here probably three years ago, they're a very aggressive fish, like a crappie, but a lot smaller, but anyway, we were fishing Lake Oahu in Iowa, went down there, and I brought the PK predator tungsten, it's a one ounce tungsten, got a blade on it, a treble hook, we were fishing, and I could see them on my livestock, and there was a bunch of them down there, they wouldn't fight, and so I go online, and I'm trying to figure out how to catch a bluegill, and first thing I said is, lighten up your line, you know, go like a two pound test, and I did that, and I think our PK predator tungsten was a little too big, so you can come up with the idea of, let's drop the hook from the actual lure, to get like space out there, and then that seemed to work, started catching fish, that came up with the idea of, let's just make a real small tungsten, how small can we go, we got it down to a one thirty second out tungsten, and this is called the metagoshi rig, that all came from the idea of bluegill bite eat, bug bite eat, so the idea, this is this lure, bait chasing bait, when you stick something on the hook, it's basically, that hook is going to be following that lure, like bait chasing bait down there, real cool idea, we used a little bit last fall on Devil's Lake, we were catching blue jumbo perch with this, and then we would have walleye come through, I think our biggest walleye we caught was about three pounds, the chain did not break, I'm like, I'm sold, this is an awesome lure, bluegill, crappie, perch, and walleye, but I'm not saying this is a walleye lure, but if you have one come through, you're going to be okay with it, you know, that's the hook, right, and then as I'm going around, different sporting shows, I'm thinking, hey, I got this cool small spoon with a drop chain, and I'm showing guys, and they're like, you know what would be cooler than that, a treble hook on it, and I'm like, I can't breathe these guys, so what I did, I come out with a TK micro spoon, same one 30 second tongues in, but we put a size 20 treble hook on it, that way I got all the anglers happy, I think, I covered every bait, yeah, we got six colors of each, real cool lures, shield was down in Kirkwood Chasm, and here's a bunch of other stores that are slowly picking them up, but it's something new, so if you don't have it at your store, ask as far as that they order it, or check it out on our website, where we're fully stocked.
"c n. j water company" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"I'll tell you a quick anecdote in 2010 when we wanted to launch the first ETF, the global X lithium and battery tech ETF, we actually went through the process of calling all of the index providers to see if they wanted to work with us on the development of this idea. And pretty much they laughed at us. What are you guys trying to do? Like a lithium ETF, what is that? So because of that, we actually had to pretty much do a lot of that heavy lifting in house, which back in the day we saw as a challenge by quite frankly it was the best thing that ever happened to us because it forced us to develop our own product and research capabilities that right now we're still benefiting from 14 years later. All right, so you mentioned lithium and battery tech, which is about $4 billion. Let's talk about two others that are sort of sustainable investing related. Again, back to the ticker. Clean water, aqua, AQ, WA. How is the clean water ETF doing? And what sort of companies do you hold in a clean water? I think it's one of our newer themes. And what we are seeing particularly with clean water or think about a clean tech, renewable energy producers, there is a significant shift towards a more sustainable world. And I think as many of these things are benefiting from that transition and clean water is definitely one. And we've seen massive water supply issues in the United States. But when you look at what took place in Flint, Michigan and a whole bunch of other cities whose water infrastructure has fallen apart, there has to be an immense demand for clean water going forward. A 100%, we have seen already some policy coming from The White House in the last whatever we do think many of these companies are basically dedicated to a process in more effective ways. Are definitely going to be benefiting from this trend. And how about wind energy or windy? What sort of companies do you hold in that sort of ETF? All combat are basically involved in the production of the protein in the production of wind energy. Are there that many public companies in that space? I know GE used to do stuff. I'd be hard pressed to name 40 companies in that space.

I put a lincoln in the in the The chat room there for you know the the documentary on called bottled life and it deals with the abuses by the nestle water company. Okay so while we have challenges like for navajo nation and just simply getting water and they don't have water to Many of the homes. All right you have this company. That's doing massive massive amounts of water extraction. This has been going on for years and years and years okay and so on their website. They publish ten things. You should know about this company now. Maybe you did or did not know these things but But i wanted to share the show those with you if that's okay brother. You're all right so number one. They write bottled. Water is one of the company's key strategic moneymakers. Now again if you think necessarily most people think of nestle crunch candy bars. Chocolate bars right okay. That's not their number one business. There number one businesses bottling water so says nestle has an annual turnover of the c. h. f. one hundred ten billion of which almost ten percent is derived from the bottled water business. Okay number two nestle has achieved. World dominance in the bottled water business by taking over such leading brands as perrier. And i think we we had somebody do some research for the show and they they own over thirty two different water brands. That you're probably familiar with another one is Poland spring number. Three nestle is constantly buying up additional valuable groundwater resources in order to satisfy the massive demanded has created for bottled water. Now if you think about what. My brother said about You know a water is a new oil That should make the hairs in the back of your neck. Stand up because if if you cannot get access to groundwater any longer the only resources you're going to be able to turn to companies like nestle number. Four nestle is taking advantage of the often sought out of date water rights in many locations by operating To the limit of legality not only in developing countries but also in the united states and elsewhere in the industrialized world number five nationally spares no effort in exerting financial legal and political pressure on anyone campaigning for water ownership as public property and human rights number. Six nestle is using up precious natural water resources to create and commercialize quote new water number seven nestle promotes bottled water with an extensive global marketing and advertising campaigns undermining awareness for the necessity of a functioning public water supply system. That's very key Asked the folks up in fredericksburg main about that. Who watching year. After year there the lake levels go down from that area and that's again the bottle to filter in bottled water for the poland. Spring brand back with an i team. Investigation water is a precious resource and it has also become one of the most profitable companies are making billions of dollars selling bottled water in connecticut. There's an intense fight to stop niagara. That's a california based company from pumping water from town reservoirs and building a bottling plant caddick. It's not the first state to see a water awards but going on all over the united states for a while in maine the battle to stop a water company made its way all the way to the supreme course channel. Three and susan raff traveled to that little town in maine to see what we could expect here in connecticut. Freiburg maine a small town. Only about thirty five hundred people live there by all accounts. It's a quaint main town except for the battle waged between a big water company and those trying to block what some call profiting from a natural resource just last week. Opponents were delta blow when the high court ruled against their repeal but years of legal wrangling has left a bad taste. Store shelves are stocked with lots of bottled water. It's become the new trend. A healthy alternative to soda companies like nestle which owns poland. Spring are making millions. Who does on the water. That's immoral conundrum. And that we really need to look at now because the futures certain nikki akara lives in freiburg main poland. Spring is pumping out more than one hundred million gallons a year. She is a strong opponent of public water for profit. She's also a member of the town's water district but feels the district has little control because of a deal. That was made a deal that could last for decades. This forty five year contract which they're touting to the public as a twenty five year contract for instance is really a forty five year contract. Nestle tells us that after twenty years they can extend for another twenty five more. Bruce taylor worries about the future. It's very hard to find the resources. And there's another concern that people in maine have about all of this pumping and that is surface-water take round pond. It used to be a very popular spot for swimming. But now the water levels have gone way down monitoring ponds and all that data is fully public and available for over a decade around for ten thousand years. Mark dubois is the natural resource manager for nestle which owns poland spring. He says round pond is hard to monitor because people disturbed the pond and the monitoring equipment jobs at value to the rural economy in maine. He says the company's bottling plant employs about eight hundred people. Although nestle doesn't pay tax payers for their water they do pay the fiber water company for what they take. We've been able to keep costs down for our ratepayers. Because of the subsidized monies received from poland springs. Gene injures says corporate money has also helped make improvements to their infrastructure. And some who get the water favor the deal. We pay very little water at the time this started. There weren't many ground rules now. There are the state of maine regulates. How much water is withdrawn. Plus nestle is required to have permits on what they take out and transport but the freiburg water company is completely private and some town have a problem with two private companies making a deal with public water where fighting the and pennsylvania and california where there's a drought in oregon and a lot in the global south. So they're not just an issue. That's going down in maine. It's an issue that's going. I mean nited states are two home. Construction has already started on bottling plant in bloomfield niagara.

Social Media And Free Speech During A Polarizing Time
"Moves that net neutrality is brought that the FCC has reason to be proud of, but But let me ask you this. Through the root of our conversation two years ago and to the next several minutes of this interview The Internet is even more now than it was two years ago, right because the kids are going to school and everybody's working from home. We all need it as we need electricity and plumbing. Why should it not be regulated as such? So I do believe that the debate is no longer a debate over whether Internet access is a luxury or a necessity. It's a necessity. To me. It's clear that the utility style regulation that would be imposed of net neutrality. Does not serve the consumer at the end of the day. Perhaps the best evidence comes from abroad in Europe, which has disease till the style regulations treats the Internet. Like the water company, the electric company regulators had to go hat in hand to companies like Netflix and YouTube at the beginning of the pandemic and ask them to proactively throttle content to consumers because they had not had the infrastructure investment needed. To keep up more over. There are parts of the digital divide in Europe that are not getting addressed because there's simply not an incentive to build those networks. So let's talk about private companies here and some of the power they have in this economy. And I need to turn the page to section 2 30 of the Communications Decency Act, which is in the waning days of your chairmanship has become the net neutrality of 2020 and 2021, right. The The provisions of the law that gives immunity for social media companies and many others for what people say on that site. Um do you think I'm just gonna go straight for the £800 gorillas? First? Do you think Twitter and Facebook have too much power? I do think that those companies, among others in the social media space do not operate by the same principles that other companies in the Internet economy do. For example, with respect to Twitter, who makes the decisions about content moderation, why is one actor not allowed to post but the supreme leader if Iran is These are the types of things that with respect to Internet service providers, the FCC's instituted regulations and I think that's part of the reason why in the halls of Congress is a growing bipartisan consensus that we need to re examine the regulatory framework for these companies. Now the FCC doesn't have authority here. That's a decision for Congress and the next administration to make. But I do think that there is a growing questions about transparency and consistency. If the FCC doesn't have authority here, why did you say a number of months ago You were going to take a look at a new rule. Teofilo out how to implement to 30 at one might reasonably assume the behest of the president. United States who has not been shy about his feelings about this law. What we don't have authority to change the law, which is what's many elected officials are talking about with respect to this section, 2 13 ounce and I made the Department of Commerce submitted a petition to us and we made it into print dependent determination that we had legal authority to interpret that their immunity provisions and that narrow provision only. That's one of the things that we were considering, and we decided that there wasn't time to move forward. But Do you think this is an issue that's going to grow as the social media increasingly becomes the public square when it comes to political discourse? Well, just pause to note Children screaming the background and random thuds Because we're on a roll world. We're all making radio from our living rooms. Sorry about that. Now, look, it's the way it is. It's the way it is. Let me let me actually just just pick up on what you just said and ask you sort of the following question, right? Because in in a matter of six or seven days or whatever it is, you will no longer be the chairman of the FCC. There will be somebody else. Who will be a Democrat approved by the Democratic Senate now On by wonder about this idea that you and I talked about last time Regulatory ping pong Because net neutrality is going to come back up section 2 30 is going to come up. And whoever chairs the FCC is probably gonna have an opposite point of view as to you. What What is the role of Congress in these decisions? And, um I guess why? Why? Why do our regulatory agencies have to do this kind of ping Pong? Congress needs to put on the page exactly what the rules should be so that administrative agencies don't swing back and forth, depending on the political affiliation of its leader. Now, you mentioned that neutrality that I think it's an actual, relatively simple fix. No blocking, no throttling any competitive Honda. Sorry, I can't see I can't help but laugh When you say it's a simple fix. I mean, come on. It is no. I think it is in terms of the substance now the politics of course, there are much more difficult. But even beyond that, for example, my first major speeches chairman, I urged Congress To think about infrastructure legislation. This is back in 2017, allocating 50, or even $60 billion for broadband. And if they had done that, in a bipartisan way back, then think about how much better off would be today. And so I think that it's important for Congress to update the rules to tell the American people you've elected us to make this judgment about the digital economy. Here is our judgment, and then agencies have a little more certainty, and so would consumers of the end of the day.

Which Companies Won't Survive the Pandemic
"Which companies are least likely to survive the financial fallout from the corona virus and Bro recounts yet another painful and baffling week in the global economy and stock market. All that and more on this week's episode of Molly Glances Bro. What's up the stock market? Of course make any well. Let's review what happened during the first week of May ending on May eighth so the S&P five hundred was up three point five percent for the week so at this point it's only down nine point. Three percent for the year. Nasdaq even better up. Six percent for the week that puts in positive territory for the year so during one of the worst economic downturns ever. The Nasdaq is up. Almost two percent small caps also had a good week. Five point seven percent but they're still down sixty percent of the year international stocks up three percent but down eighteen percent of the year and boring old bonds or down slowly stat. Were down slightly last week but up five percent for the year so if you're looking at your portfolio it's mostly all good news. The badge news from last week came from the monthly employment report. So we've been talking every week about job losses. Those are actually figures of the number of Americans filing for unemployment with the state's the last Friday the US Bureau of Labor statistics otherwise known as the B. L. S. announced the official employment numbers for April and these figures are based on surveys of tens of thousands of households and employers. Just to get an idea of how many people are working how people how many people are not working and let me tell you. It Ain't pretty for the month or twenty million. Americans lost their jobs. Driving the unemployment rate up to fourteen point seven percent now. At least that's the figure you probably saw if you pay attention to the financial media however the actually releases six unemployment rates every month the one that most of us here about in the media that fourteen point seven percent in April is technically known as the Youth Three. It measures the number of people out of work and the people looking for a job. But think about that second part and ask yourself how many unemployed people are looking for a job right now. The fact of the matter is millions of Americans have put their job searches on hold because know they probably wouldn't be able to find a job or they don't feel like it's safe to look for a job and then there the Americans who've had hours cut back so essentially there are millions of Americans who are working part time. They wish they could work fulltime but they can't actually. Uncle Sam has a number that captures all of these people as well it's known as the U. Six and it led to twenty two point eight percent. Wow last month. So it's the highest just about the highest ever when you look back at the great recession of two thousand to two thousand nine. The highest rate was just seventeen point six percent and it took more than a year to get there yet during this pandemic panic and only took two months to get there and it's really the worst we've seen since the Great Depression. Add to that. Another five percent of the workforce that was categorized as quote employed but absent from work and some people are furloughed but some of those people probably should have been considered unemployed. You add that and you can see why Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Fox News this weekend that the real unemployment rate is likely closer to twenty five percent. It's probably going to be even higher in May. Now if you dig a little bit more into the report every major sector lost jobs with the heaviest losses coming from leisure and hospitality where forty seven percent of the people were laid off that wipes out all the jobs created in that industry since nineteen eighty eight according to the Washington Post the sector of the fair. The best were utilities. Lost thousand so if you want job security contact the water company or the electric company or something like that. There was some good news that least seemingly good news on the surface in the report and that was average hourly earnings increased. Five percent believe it or not people making more money but the report pointed out. The reason that is true is because most of the people who are losing their jobs and not calculated in that are lower income employees so the reason it earnings went up is because it took out all the lower income folks at least the lower income folks who lost their jobs. How are American households reacting to all this gloomy employment news? While they're here is some genuine good news in March. The personal savings rate jumped thirteen point one percent that is the highest rate since the nineteen eighties. Americans are borrowing last. According to Federal Reserve Total. Consumer credit fell three point. Four percent on an annualized rate. That's the first decline since two thousand and eleven so good job America doing the smart thing and then finally despite the downturn in the economy Goldman Sachs predicts that disposable income will go up this year. Thanks in large part to the government stepping in to make up for what many people have lost sell from their research. Report quote combining forecasts of Labor income corporate dividends proprietors income interest rental income and tax cuts and government payments. We project that total disposable personal income will increase by zero point five percent in two thousand twenty which is pretty remarkable. You think about it.

She's One of our most avid listeners. So we always like to hear from her okay so we have a California beer. I've never picked on.

Well let's open it up okay so I was really surprised. This is your first Sierra Nevada. Ah Let's take it down to the quiet end. I don't know how I've missed Sierra Nevada. Anyway I had a ton of Beers from that company so if we have other California cases you'll probably more of them great so until the case this is a just a fascinating case to me. It really yes yes. Yeah so by John. Moore's own description. His childhood growing up in the nineteen fifties was a happy one. He lived in a two bedroom middle-class home home behind his grandparents house. He had two older brothers who moved away when John was a teenager. Went to join the navy and the other start his own family Alan China's sixteen his mother left him and his father alone with no explanation. She just took off one day. She called after few days but John didn't see her again for three years and she had moved back to her hometown of Missouri and she never did reconcile John's father. That's kind of a strange thing to happen when you're a teen share I'm sure it was pretty weird and a little disheartening for him. Definitely one Sunday. She's there the next day she's not and no real explanation. Though in nineteen sixty seven John. Join the airforce. After he completed basic training training he was in jet mechanics training then he transferred to firefighting school. He had wanted to be a firefighter for some time. So he's happy to learn. Learn how to operate the equipment as he put out training fires yet. He married his high school girlfriend. Jodi in nineteen sixty eight and they were shipped off to an air air force base in Spain which was near Commercial Airport and they were there for two years but John was kind of bored. He only got to respond to to air-crashes during that time and he really wanted to be more in on the action. When John was transferred to great falls Montana he fought only one fire then when he he was twenty two he was honorably discharged at this time? Jodi was pregnant with their first child. John was insecure and he came across as a bit of a Bragar in order to compensate for this he really wanted to become a policeman or a firefighter. The Los Angeles Police Department invited him to test for position mission and he passed the written tests the medical exam and the fitness test but he failed the psychological test. He was sent a letter telling him that he he was unsuitable. So this was a big thing for him. He had wanted to be a policeman very badly. Your that was his main goal to be a cop. Yeah so this'll be pointed back to. As a really huge disappointment mitch merely might have had an effect on who he became as a man or your. I think you could look at it. That we could also look at it as there is something in his psychological makeup that made him on high rable. Oh sure yeah I think it went both ways after getting past feeling hurt. He was very angry. The rejection letter suggested that he consult another psychologist so so he hired one that he found in the yellow pages. This psychologist didn't evaluation and found him suitable but remember. This is the person he was paying but now he had a second opinion so he took that back to the LAPD psychologist for an appeal of that decision. You know the LAPD psychologist couldn't couldn't tell John Anything specific about why he had been rejected other than the say that he might have been too passive. Police officers needed to be assertive but then the psychologist left John Alone in his office with the file. He said I'm going to go out and get a cup of coffee. I think he kind of intentionally left the father so John read the file and so that one of his co workers had been interviewed and told the psychologist that John was laid to work lazy and resentful eventful of another man being promoted over him so I can't see any other way that this happened. Then the psychologist was really giving him an opportunity to look at his file. Were were absolutely the final evaluation stated that John Needed a few years to mature. And then maybe he could reapply to the force now. John Though would never admit to seeing his diagnosis in that file but he had actually been diagnosed with a personality trait disturbance and emotionally unstable personality. His former supervisors had described him as both irresponsible and immature as well. So this time John was working for Sparkletts marklets bottled water company. He quit that job and entered the management program at a fast food restaurant. It was nineteen seventy three and John was going going from one fast food job to another before he quit and he applied next to the Los Angeles Fire Department. He was couldn't be a policeman. He can be a fireman. Yeah I think it was as backup plan. And he was really thrilled when he was accepted to the academy for training but it turns out he was out of shape and he wasn't up to the rigors of the academy physically. He was told that he'd also done poorly on the written test so he was just given the option to resign or he. It's going to be fired so he was very angry and upset when this happened. Yeah and part of his problem was probably his attitude his after all had been a firefighter for four years in air force so he felt like he didn't need to study your practice now his time in the air force vote. He's half a couple fires Chris couple crashes and he. It didn't have much training. But he thought he did. So he didn't participate in study sessions with other recruits and he hadn't practice handling the heavy ladders and equipment and they were heavy. These big wooden ladders. He apparently in the service they had the light aluminum ladders. So this was a whole all different ballgame per handed so after that failure John was absolutely despondent and by this time he had two young daughters and his marriage was on the rocks. That's when he applied to the Glendale Fire Department and they accepted him in their fire academy in the spring of seventy four. He completed eight weeks of training and he graduated with twelve other guys. He was starting his career as a firefighter and he was super happy about it. Even though the Pay Glendale was a lot at less than it would have been at the L. A. P. D. or the L. A. F. D. wasn't it Glendale lowest paying in the state or something like that at the the time it was. Yeah maybe that's why I got hired. Nobody wanted to work for them. I'm sure that was part of it. Because he really wasn't. The top of the picks no her psychological report from earlier says a lot doesn't it it really does and also at home things weren't improving. He was really bored on his days off so he ended up taking a part time job at a seven eleven as a clerk then he bought himself pickup truck and went on camping and in hunting trips on his own without his family he ended up befriending a woman at the seven eleven and other employees who is also unhappy in her marriage and the two of them decided to be roommates leave their spouses and apparently this was Not a sexual thing at all it was just a friendship allegedly anyway yes so. John left his wife Jodi leaving her just note as an explanation for what is doing a lot like what his mother did. He pay child support and he also began taking classes in fire science in police science. John believed that. The police didn't show enough respect for firefighters fighters and he examined the conflicts between the two groups and a writing assignment is still working at the seven eleven and he used what he was learning to help him spot shoplifters in the store yeah he got really into that his boss at the seven eleven was impressed at how good he got at catching shoplifters John would would watch kids who came into the store after school and he catch them making them empty their pockets and return things so this was a big thing for John. I mean to the point of weirdness really yeah very weird when example in nineteen seventy six. While he was out shopping he saw men running toward a car with his arms full of suits from Montgomery wards store so John or chased. The man knocked him down and helped the store security guard hold the man until the police arrived yet. He and he was clearly thrilled with this moment. He talked to the security guards and he actually asked them if he could get a part time job working in mall security but the mall said they only hired off-duty policeman and not firefighters. So there's another bruise to his ego. That's right he's already been told his second class this anyway. Because he's a Fire Department Dinata Police Department guy. Yeah and I don't know if that's really a thing but he definitely saw that way. He saw a lot of things in a slightly slightly off center. Way That's true he did. He wasn't quite right. We know that so. John was disappointed that he couldn't get a mall. Security John but that didn't deter them from doing other good deeds the same day. He saw an older man. Shoplifting hand tools. He told the cashier got the man arrested. So he asked at the sears store about getting a part time job with security
Privatised water: should the UK reconsider?
"Years of steady and rising bills have raided the decades-long consensus in Britain, the private companies run things more efficiently than the state privatized. Water utilities have come in for particular criticism and are among the companies targeted for nationalization by the opposition labor party, but would cost prohibitive. Joe Plymouth discusses this question with Jonathan Ford. The question of The Wilshire industry's future in Britain has become a very very heated one with labor promising to nationalize industry. It comes to power claiming this will make things better for customers. And obviously the industry extremely anxious and cross about the way in which its future has been put into question in this way. I suppose the first thing Joe is correct. Say that customers pay more when water services are in private hands. Well, it depends peel comparing too but a study that compared water prices in England and Wales with Scotland where it was nationalized shows that they more expensive in England miles nothing bills or seventy pounds higher in England. And according to the national orders office water prices, and then Linda wells with forty percent higher in twenty. Twelve than they were privatization. So there's something behind the analysis that the privatization took place hasn't been overwhelmingly of benefit to the customer. I mean, obviously, the industry itself talks about the large amount of investment, it's Putin. But let's turn now to the story that you've written which is about the question of how much it would cost to privatize the industry. Your story contains some calculations from Moody's the credit rating agency, which says that the cost to the government of nationalizing water would be about fourteen and a half billion pounds. Now that significantly lower than the forty four billion pounds, which was cited in a pretty well circulated paper from a think tank called the social market foundation last year. Now, what it counts for that big difference? I mean have water shares collapsed in value since the SMS came out with their number about the mechanism that you used labor. Isn't proposing to make takeover bids for companies in the stock market at stock market prices what they're planning to do is to buy out. The regulated company that owns the S and delivers the water from the holding company. So labor has said that it would by the water companies on the basis of the book failure, which is essentially the value of the minus the did and the calculation by Moody's food. The if t has is to Mason that that's around fourteen point five billion, of course, that only a starting point because what labor is also saying is that they would look at some of the costs that have been incurred since privatization.
