After rise and covert cases in July and early August. Our case numbers have begun to plant home. So we're not out of the woods and this crisis is far from over. But we appear to have stopped the incline, but we're now playing told and we want to see that become a decline. To get through this and to ensure the safety of our kids, educators and support staff this fall. Everyone's got to continue to do their part. We also need the Trump Administration and Congress to step up and provide additional support. Two states like Michigan, so we can send more resource is to our classrooms to keep our kids and our educators and all of their families safe. I want to end by thanking the thousands of Michiganders on the front lines of this crisis, while people everywhere have made tremendous sacrifices to protect their families from this virus. Those on the front lines have put their own health at risk to take care of the rest of us. Every day for the past five months. Gruelling, stressful work. You've ever listened. Tio this American life on NPR. They've highlighted some stories of people on the front line in Detroit. You might want to check it out. I was proud, but also it was an eye opener. And I hope maybe you might listen. Nurses and doctors working 18 hour shifts and giving up time with their families to keep them safe. You stood by the side of a bed where someone lost their battle with covert 19 and their family couldn't be there. Grocery store workers, especially in the beginning of this pandemic, worked around the clock to keep ourselves stocked to ensure people could buy groceries safely. Child care workers who've been instrumental in helping our frontline workers save lives every day. These air truly the real heroes of this crisis, truck drivers and mail carriers. People who mask up every day for hours on end to ensure our safety. They deserve our gratitude and respect and the best way we can show it is by masking up.

California King Salmon is not only my favorite fish. It's an abundant supply right now and is doing very well. Unfortunately, sales are actually off a little bit because the closure of so many restaurants but by golly people like the Monterey Fish Company in San Francisco really have plenty of it to distribute. I talked to Tom Worthington, the manager of Monterey Fish out on Pier 33 truly 90% of the fish they're selling is local local local fish these days. First of all with the transportation and the covert thing being such a problem. Getting things here from other parts of the country or other parts of the world has proved to be almost impossible. Well, for those of us that like to eat great fresh fish. It could not be better than it is right now the salmon is rich and flavorful. And King Salmon is not like any other kind of Sam and I'll tell you it's in a class by itself. Now there is something very rare. That's happening as the waters of warming up there been getting a fair amount of the classic blue fin tuna here on the West Coast.

Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak
"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time

The congresswoman for the Bronx is an ardent socialist who runs around spouting sympathy and support for the poor and working class. Because of her far left posture. She has become a media darling, Wait a minute. Can I use that word? If not, she's promoted constantly by the leftist press as a force for good. But it is just the opposite, at least where the folks are concerned. You may have heard New York Governor Andrew Cuomo last week, almost begging affluent New Yorkers to return to the city. Homo is a smart guy who knows a Gotham in the entire state is on the verge of financial collapse because of Cove it and the vicious, violent crime wave that Cuomo himself. Enabled by signing the insane Nobel law. The governor did that to pander to the radical left, which has become a hobby of hits. Rich New Yorkers in many businesses are fleeing the city, taking their considerable tax dollars with them. Many will not return. Because who wants to live in the now dangerous place that has marginalized what was once the most effective police force in the nation.

Throughout the pandemic, the Amazon company has prospered as Americans are ordering products from home. Amazon is expanding and hiring. While many Americans were out of a job, Amazon workers are getting paid and have security. You may remember. Back in 2018 Amazon wanted to build a plant in a working class section of Queens. It was estimated that 40,000 jobs would eventually be associated with that plan. Not to mention the huge financial benefits to the surrounding neighborhoods and small business. But Ocasio Cortez in all her righteous indignation raised hell. Saying New York City was giving Amazon to money tax breaks, which was absurd. Even de Blasio. So the economic benefit of the corporation coming to town? Tired of being attacked by the far left Amazon kill the deal. Knowing thousands of other municipalities would be thrilled to have the plant.

How I Built Resilience With Brian Chesky of Airbnb
"Hey everyone and welcome to how I built. This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and business leaders about how they're adapting to these difficult economic times and today show we're going to hear from Brian Chess the CEO and Co founder of Airbnb back in twenty sixteen, we spoke with Brian's Co founder Joe Gebbie at, and he told the amazing story of how they founded and built the company, and if you haven't heard it, be sure to check it out. Now, of course, we are in a very different time and a few months ago Brian wrote a letter to the entire staff. AIRBNB letting them know that twenty five percent of the company was going to be laid off. This has been by far for us. The most difficult thing that we've experienced since we started the company a dozen years ago and I think join us to talk about how starting airbnb basically this idea that like strange who live each other live with each other like that was the hardest thing we were ever GonNa do it was like pushing a rock hill and it turned out that trying to run a company that does travel preparing to go public in the middle of pandemic is about as hard. And then doing all via Zoom Ios, even more difficult. I think that what people want right now just more fundamentally is connection is like the thing that we've always wanted we want connection to each other and now you have to fight for it. You know you have to make a conscious effort for it get on the one hand I'm closer to some people I've ever been in my life probably closer to my life co-founders donate we talk all the time and when you're going through crazy periods of time, it has a way of bringing you closer together but also has a way of making your bubble a little bit smaller and that's probably what's happened for me. Yeah. You you wrote a letter to your employees that is posted publicly that letter is was remarkable. It was so transparent. You had to lay off a quarter of your employees in May and you could see how painful it was for you to write that letter it was extremely transparent. You described the process for how you had to make the hard decision But also you know that every employee would receive fourteen weeks of of pay plus Severinsen insurance for a year and they keep their laptops and there were resources to help the employees Kind of walk me through how you how you came to to write that letter and How you kind of dealt with that just emotionally. Yeah there is no playbook. To lay people off in that's the kind of thing that if there was a playbook, you should never use it because the thing that people want more than anything. They want humanity they want compassion and that means that you need to treat people like like people like individually not robotically you know when the crisis happened, we felt in mid March it was pretty serious. We spent twelve years building airbnb in the we lost eighty percent of business in eight weeks. You know we're one of the success stories right and then suddenly eight weeks there's. All sorts of concerns articles willer survive never thought. I'd read an article like that. And we made a lot of hard decisions. We I cut enormous cost. We cut over a billion dollars plan marketing spend. We quickly raised two billion dollars. It's not easy to raise two billion dollars. It's more difficult to raise two billion dollars from your travel company. It's a pandemic and you've lost eighty percent business eight weeks. The people get nervous thankfully we had some great investors step up but we had to do that deal that was like over the course of seventy two hours still like get the deal done it was the. Fastest deal thing from have ever done and they've ever done. So before that layup even happened, I wrote a couple principals and I said, we have a hunt handful of stakeholders we have to I. Make sure that we act quickly in with all stakeholders. Remind we're going to be remembered probably for how he handled this crisis Andy Grove this famous entrepreneur said bad comes destroyed by crisis good company survive crisis in great companies thrive or are defined by crisis I said, we're not going to be the kind of company will be destroyed by this. We're GONNA try to take each of our stack holders and when we got to the employees, we basically had exhausted options having raised two billion dollars. We came to the conclusion that we would have to lay off when we confronted to hard truth the hard truth number one was this that we did not know when trouble would return nobody did and the second thing we knew is that when travel would return, it would look fundamentally different than the travel before the pandemic and so our business would have to look different and we'd have. To change the shape of our business that we focused on, and so then we just realized that we had to approach this with a sense of humanity said we should be as generous as we possibly could be in not less generous than that. Why would you do that until we came up with a handful of things that we did to try to help people in this very difficult time We did a fourteen sevens puts a week pre or service we felt like well, this is a health crisis people need health insurance, and so we made sure that everyone had at least one year of health insurance even after ever getting laid off one of the things that I'm most proud of that our team came up with Joe in the team came to me and they said, you know what? We have a recruiting team maybe we dedicate a percentage of the recruiting team to outplacement for the people

Insider trading issues raised after Kodak's stock gets hot
"Shares of Kodak taking another leg lower today as the drama around the company Continues Swirl. The latest twist. Kodak. Significantly up to its lobbying spending before being awarded seven hundred and sixty five million dollar government loan according to Reuters Kodak Spent Eight hundred seventy thousand dollars in lobbying efforts between April and June. Compare that to less than five thousand dollars it spent in Q. One of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred now as. We've been reporting here on fast money. The rise in Kodak's years before news officially broke of that government loans, concerns of insider trading and an SEC broke the company's earnings call last night Kodak CEO said, he supports the government's decision to put the loan on hold until I'd investigation is complete. Karen you have puts in this stock. What is remarkable is that it's nowhere near the level it was trading at prior to the win the loan was announced. Right. Five hundred percent more than that. It's interesting to me that that's a great return on those lobbying dollars, right? I mean eight, hundred, thousand. Seven hundred sixty, million dollar loan or whatever. It might be I think the CEO had to say that I don't really know what else he can say like does disregard those that all that option noise give us the money anyway I think that this I think it's sort of become an embarrassment of to the trump administration and they probably should just. Speaking now someone who's long puts right that they should just let this one go and not not fun this loan it's too noisy. Ten and Every part of that option is just terrible right Tim. What it gets back to you know even if they get the loan, are they the right company to be producing the pharmaceutical? Talk. Once upon a time, try to be a blockchain company. Now back to photography company trying to be a generic drugmaker ingredient maker is right company. I mean. This is a company that has tried to reinvent itself Multiple Times since twenty twelve bankruptcy. And so I just it's hard for me to understand. We don't have enough of a show to talk about the what lobbying efforts or like and the impact and how the shouldn't happen anyway even with real companies. But I think if you look at the trading volume volume on the stock, it went from trading by appointment to trading two hundred and fifty million shares at its peak two weeks ago It's still trading about nine million shares to about eating a million dollars of turnover which tells you there's just an extraordinary backdrop still I agree with Karen, I think there's more to go here.

Israel Says It Foiled Hackers Targeting Defense Industry
"Israel says a foiled cyber attack targeting its defense industry by a shadowy group that the US has linked to North Korea. The Israeli defence Ministry says hackers with the Lazarus group posed as the CEOs and senior officials of international companies. They then offer job opportunities to employees as defense firms in an attempt to gain access to their networks to steal information. And the U. S. Blamed the group for the Wannacry Ransomware, which froze 300,000 computers across 150 countries in 2017 and the cyber attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2014.
Understanding How And Why Your Market Makes Decisions
"We all know that knowledge is power of course, data about Customer Habits and Consumer Habits is power as well more than ever. When we shift in business, it's key to understand how and why your market makes decisions. So Jonathan Silver he is the founder and CEO of affinity solutions. Now, affinity is the authoritative source for truth for news outlets not for profits research firms and businesses in the US and the only source for purchase insights that can be analyzed by demographic geographic lifestyle segment and political affiliation affinities mission is to. Transform data insights into experiences that improve people's lives. Jonathan I'm excited to have you here and talk to our Nice Guy. Community. Welcome to the show Ed. Great to meet you doug thanks for having me on I. AM happy that I'm happy to have you here and you know a guy that wrote a book called Nice Guys Finish First. I was completely attracted to the the data for good. So tell me a little bit about what data for good is and how that might affect those that might be listening to our show today. Sure so It's great to be on and I wanted to Start by saying a little bit more about sort of the vision of affinity solutions which for me, we've been running the business now for about Fifteen years, but we've had much more clarity of vision crystallize over the last year, which is. To. Use data to improve people's lives and You alluded to kind of what our business is about. But we have detail purchase behavior on about one hundred, million consumers ninety million in the US A- ten million in other countries. we have that data by the way because we run a kind of loyalty program, we dented that we provide to over three thousand banks the reward customers when shop at. We tell depot wallgreens. So data for good is an extension of the vision of. Using data to improve people's lives that we launched during the coronavirus. During this crisis and we we started by giving away some of our data to scientists to academics researchers. Some. Not for profits to help government agencies with policy making and it was Kinda shocking to me that government entities how much they fly blind. They don't have the information on how their towns cities. Counties are doing. Early and I was like well, their sales tax I mean why? Why wouldn't they get that quickly but apparently, even sales tax information takes a couple of months for a for them to get information. So data data for good was first about helping government policymakers by giving them the information they need to navigate their own decisions, but then it quickly expanded on to provide businesses visibility they need themselves to navigate this crisis and so. you know insights on. What customers are doing outside of businesses own four walls. That's been our mantra for for a long time that's always been important. But it's become absolutely critical during Cova. This sort of outside in view of consumer behavior has become essential especially now because you know during particularly in the march, April. But even even now, you know where there's been a hole punched in their own data that the businesses were looking at you know the purchases in their own stores. On. Their own websites because people just stop coming in coming in a lot less. So businesses have been flying completely blind kind of like A. analogy is like a fighter pilot flying between two Kanye walls that instrumentation So right now, we're delivering through partnerships with companies like Deloitte, accenture and bane and McKinsey weekly updates to businesses to help them navigate. We're also providing the press in our website affinity solutions, dot COM and weekly updates on what's happening in the economy to call it a business recovery scorecard. which looks at bellwether categories like. Grocery and and home delivery and. You know as people come out of their homes So it'll be interesting. You know that data, which is for the good of not for profit scientists. It's for the good of businesses for the good of consumers We're going to be looking very closely at how consumer behavior will change permanently. As a result of this crisis, we're seeing a lot more purchases on the web. So data for good is really about providing that level of insight to a broader community.
In MegaMerger, Teladoc Buys Diabetes Coaching Company for $18 Billion
"Yesterday we told you about one industry that appears to be forever changed by the pandemic, the oil and gas business. Well, here's another healthcare. These days make a doctor's appointment and it says likely to occur on your screen as in an office maybe even more likely virtual appointments were on the rise before covid nineteen but the pandemic put this trend on steroids telehealth use tripled as the virus spread around the globe according to a healthcare research firm called. Robo Global. Half of adults age twenty five and older have virtually visited a healthcare provider over the last few painful months. The firm says music to the ears of anyone who runs a telehealth company more than half of those patients were brand new to telemedicine can handle one more statistic well, nine out of ten of those patients told Robo. that. They'd be happy to see Dr Virtual again most likely that include you. So why am I telling you all this or because at least two companies are making big hey from this socially distanced phenomenon last week telemedicine leader Tele Doc announced it's buying Digital Health, coaching? Company. Forget this eighteen and a half billion dollars. It's rare to see those kinds of numbers. Even in Silicon Valley acquisitions, although there are many privately owned telemedicine companies, Tele Doc which was founded in two thousand and two is the only publicly traded one because of the pandemic business is booming in early March, the company was conducting about ten thousand remote medical appointments a day just a month. Later, that number had doubled. The company told The Wall Street Journal. Tele Doc is purchasing a company called the von. Go using Technology Levin go remotely monitors and coaches patients with chronic illnesses. CEO Glenn Tolman founded the company after his young son was diagnosed with type one diabetes. The Condition Levin go is best known for the publicly traded company later expanded to help care for people suffering from chronic problems like high blood, pressure, anxiety, and depression. According to CNBC Tele Doc had long planned to add services for remotely managing chronic conditions and La. bongos leaders had been thinking about moving into telehealth. The two companies quote were either on a path of convergence or collision Tele Doc CEO Jason Gora Vic told. CNBC. Industry publication healthcare dive calls the do the country's first digital health megamerger and by far the largest consider this Google is working on an acquisition a fitbit for what now looks like a meager two billion dollars the trade publication points out. The TALLADEGA deal is set to close by the end of the year proved it'll create an entity worth thirty, seven, billion dollars expected revenues in its first year with top a billion dollars or almost double the two companies sales this year sound promising well, not so fast Wall Street dinged both company's stock prices saying the price was inflated and that telehealth might be an covert bubble. which wants the pandemic finally, Wayne's could pop furthermore there are plenty of challenges on both sides. Tell dot faces a host of telemedicine rivals such as privately held doctor on demand but perhaps the bigger issue is that the eye-popping size of the deal could create copycats other big healthcare companies both virtual and traditional have probably already started shopping for their own remote chronic care management acquisitions. The stock price of Levine go rival Barrio health, which also manages chronic illnesses spiked almost thirty percent following the news. But let's get real. What could all this mean for most of us? One Stop Virtual healthcare management that's at least part of the answer, your blood pressure spikes you'll see it on your digital sensor and maybe through that same device, your virtual doctor will be contacted automatically if it gets bad enough, it's a future that could be more convenient, less personal, not very private and very lucrative for digital health entrepreneurs.

Caregiving & Employment Make It All Work
"Welcome to fading memories a supportive podcast for those caring for a loved one with memory loss. Me Day is Larry Nice Nsen actually got that right for a JJ me. and. He is with Care Jen we're GonNa talk about caregiving and employment, and some of the things we need to do. So that, we can care for our loved ones and still work and earn a living and keep our economy goings. Thanks for joining me Larry. You gotTA. Jennifer. It's my pleasure. So tell me a little bit about yourself I within we've been chatting for half an hour and I don't think I know how you got into the care end of things. Absolutely and Like like you I am a caregiver I was thrust into it. With the the typical call right? We all get the call that says. I know your life was on a path. But it's now going to go in a completely different direction and you may or may not recover on that path but here's what's happening the way it happened for me. I'm actually has a good ending to it. So I'll I'll give you the the end of the book as I give you the beginning of the book and my father I was driving down the road with my mother he was in his mid seventies and. Started to drive radically in his turned out my mother who is much smarter than medically anyway than she should be said, doesn't look right and drove my father to the hospital where they found out he had an advanced brain tumor. and. Everything was fine until it wasn't right and so he had a brain surgery. And a hundred percent recovery from the brain surgery except for one little problem. Is paralyzed from the neck down. And Yeah didn't expect that to happen either they stocked her said there's no reason it should happen but here we were planning. Just, a normal Tuesday afternoon we were planning on a normal Tuesday we're going to do whatever. We really do the rest of the week and working and see each other and that will get time and now. Instead my mother and my brother and I were trying to figure out. What do you do with somebody who is paralyzed from the neck down who can't speak WHO's basically in a coma and they don't know what the prognosis is. Now fortunately for us I told you the story ends well. My father. After about nine months of having to learn how to speak again and walk again and all that stuff. About Ninety eight percent. None of the only thing that he had as a residual was he had what they call it drop foot right? His his right foot doesn't pick up all the way and so he ends up wearing a brace on to help him keep his foot up because otherwise he'd have the second biggest problem, which is what most older folks have, which they trip and fall and hurt themselves right But. He was really fortunate because he had a long term care insurance policy. So. When I talk about caregiving. One of the first things I say to people is we were incredibly fortunate were incredibly fortunate that the outcome was positive as I said, he's now my father turned eighty five in May and he is. As cantankerous Z. was. For my whole life, and so he's everything he should be and we didn't have to worry at no point. Did we have to worry like most caregivers do on how to pay for things? He had a long term care insurance policy. So money wasn't the issue it was just a matter of emergency care and what to do and so. I broke into this industry twenty five years ago in the insurance business. And came to genuine. To. Help them build out a portfolio of products and services around caregiving and the financing of aging in so. It's something that's near and dear to my heart is near and dear to most of the folks including our CEO. And all of our senior leaders were all caregivers in one way or another, and so we bring to the idea in the solution, not just the technical or academic end. But we're all We bring the empathy of people who provide care on an ongoing basis to, and so we think we we kinda understand what the average caregiver GOSTA.

Tackling Systemic Racism in the Fashion Industry
"I everybody and welcome to today's be O. F. Live event. I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal. I one hundred percent agree into because of that I think about what the solutions, all the problem. I always come back to equity. And that's ultimately I think about risk driving for and I think what makes this time so ready Angry special in many ways, is that the asking leadership to support us with? Of. Traditional tax. Supporting. Mental. Internships I think already doing now is we're actually asking our structures like quite literally reopen is themselves to include us and then from where all collectively dying today. Tearing structures, things I. think that's really the only way that detained from a call out that house structure best is the Cha I'm. Deploying mechanisms to. Erase. Racism, I I think it is about equity. Entering do you have anything to add to that? Now I think this are. Really great points. I. It's definitely. A lot of things that Lindsey and my style and the executive or have been working on in terms of. What our goals out of its in having a long term strategy with friends is really essential. There's no way you can teach someone to unlearn something that was you know systematically in place for all of this time. So it's essential for us to not only educate work alongside people who are really willing and ready to make those changes. Over time in for us, it's a three to five year period with benchmarks and timelines and touch points. To see where are in how they are evolving
Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis
"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in.

The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.

We use that kid at school that would grab a sheet and jump off things to see if he could fly all the alternate route from the outset. I don't remember anything else at flow or made noise.

It's a it's a really. It's it's an amazing industry in amazing life and creator of to have had to be still having. Yeah look at an all time when of jumped out of planes and you just kind of. There's something about this being up in the sky and wither. It's actually an appliance or or outside the PLANO. It's just a fascinating experience to sing the world's getting out of the view and the security of being in them and I think I think what boils down to and it's something that is getting more traction in the business world now but this whole concept of a fresh set of is a different perspective and I think it gives you that different perspective. Because you're bob everything and and you say context and I think one of the really unique things about aviation is you're you're really see the fragility of the world and really how many people there and perhaps some of the things that way Tyke on board a little personally really meant that Y. That world is small pots of a very very big machine. That is humanity differently so going back to your younger years you know. Did you fit into the picking order school? When and how was that time fee? I think because I had this sense of purpose and vision and on a Ni- from going to school reunions and saying a friends and colleagues from school now that they are much more much older just always the normally just they just knew that that attack. Chris just wanted to be the autopilot. Wanted to be a pilot and everything. I did shapes my school years I studied size. Not because good at it in fact I was terribly terribly terrible academic and everything really but everything I did was always about becoming a pilot and in my part time I read everything about. Ib reading books about wool. Two when I was eight years old and my entire bedroom was just coveting I I should pastas and every minute could get away out to. Ambulance would work experience on. Go to an army base fly helicopters. My uncles were helicopter. Pilots gone spent time with them. Everything I did was amazing myself innovation so I was not in the cool school also not bad at school probably define myself as being the most average human being on the planet. A the most average at everything can do sport. I KAI academics a flu. Ak jack-of-all-trades so I think School was formed. I didn't have any real bad experiences. They But but I definitely I definitely productized sport school. I Ice Iran Plays volleyball a below was also in in my spare time at Taif Learning ISOLATION THEORY. And just yet wanting to accelerate that. Janney to being a pilot as fast as I possibly could until Spain. Oh all kind- from school stripe poss- Recruiting Center for the Air Force and once a week on popping. I'm sure like it's got so I seek of me walking in that door every day just to say saying what you post were available. What's what's the latest and greatest came first name basis with mice of the recording stuff? They so you moved into the rule aviation so the air force Aaron Australia and what was involved in preparing yourself for that sole I fly in a fodder plant and you know what was going through your head when you sit on the runway preparing to launch on your look. I think that's the realization of a dream that moment and twenty two at the time to realize that dream then and there is pretty amazing. A lot of people diner ceva the law. Ambition look a lot of people. Don't really get what they want out of life. I think statistically hype people that shave will they want to achieve in Lhasa so I took shape that at twenty today was pretty cool? Note that I had that full price in my mind but I definitely had the emotion inside of the didn't get to enjoy too much because the speed of the aircraft and the amount of information I had to retain get the damn thing able and back again without having an accident in the office all with was particularly battles are saying you're always is a Fatah pot and as a pilot in general I think you just always have this degree of apprehension you. You're in this flying machine. You hurdling above the earth. So you always have this very respectful relationship with the aircraft. Because if you're not on your game but can you? Yeah it was. It was super amazing But if is very clever and what it does is an incremental price so by the time you guys. I all in Hornet. You're already done it in the simulated I. You've got hundreds of hours flying Mike mackey a small legit pacey nine the whole process from the planning the briefing the execution of the mission that debriefing the whole methodology. In the why of why we think as autopilots was imbued into us from from Taiwan so it was really just the next step like it's probably the biggest one that e the biggest small. Step that you Mike. But it's something that you're quite comfortable in doing that. I just have a mess. It's every fiber of your being so you really you really just get on with it and you can feel the passion passion in your voice. The lie that that ruled love flying. And there's nothing nothing like it and as a coach now an executive level conscience and people that that do really amazing things when you see a lot of the world working with football teams first grade a football teams when you look back on it. You'd still realize no one's ever done it. No one else has done this. Four hundred Fatah pilots flew the Hornet in. Its in its in its whole history. It's more people play test cricket for Australia than a flying as fodder pilots in the Air Force. And and you really do look back fondly now and appreciate that. How lucky walls to have that opportunity? It's a very grateful and has shown as a as a person so yeah I do feel and emotional visceral attachment with flying fodder jets. And how what? It's done the doors at subsequently I've for me as well so going into battle was is a whole different ballgame then doing tastes flights other emissions that really stand out as executed. They're perfectly and the outcome was favorable interesting. Use of the word perfect because we don't use that word as fought applause way fundamentally understand for fictions unattainable but we'll get as we get as close to Pacific as we can and we we like our execution right around that ninety eight percents whatever we say we will achieve at times. That's as close as we can get On Him affliate. Crafty battled the questions. I'll go up to that. Was Up flying a Hornets tonight. I when I was in the disip some Russian in Crush Mike. I Guess Battle Experience Move to Afghanistan a civilian when medically discharged from the air force. We have the sighing trying to fight. I think it's something we don't do very well in business in business. We treat every day every meeting every opportunity as I was the first one we had. But we always knew that if we trained the way that we were. GonNA EXECUTE IN BATTLE. It would guy fairly seamlessly and and the guys that did fly combat operations so that they generally said flying. Combat operations is easier than the training missions. Because of the amount of pressure. We put ourselves on on the expectation we said in China. I think that's very telling and it's a very fought upon culture is it doesn't matter what the environment you always try to full to the best of your individual ability and when you're up writing as a formation and his team that everyone is everyone is is ultimately trying to achieve and when you do it collectively as a team than amazing things happen and really. That's the crux of a high performing team. Whether it's a full same executive time off performing team is still about individual accountability and when the age individual and the team takes ultimate accountability. You're able to work much more effectively as a tame particularly when it comes to trust integrity credibility and really understanding that when someone says they're going to do something going to do it and and for me. That was the biggest surprise. When I when I moved into the business was how often people say something that never gets done. It's mind blowing even today on still struggle with because from where we came from. If you said you do something you do it. And it was just a given so since the long the short version of that story is whether it's battle whether it's training it doesn't matter up the keys you treated exactly the same. You put the same amount of IFFY. And it's Gordon seeing you kind of touched on something there that took a lot of. Ceo's around as well as your in performance with your dancer singer actor athletes That you spend more than ninety five percent of your time planning training preparing and listened five percents time actually performing or executing in for real outcome. And when you look at see yours is complete opposite the kind of own the whole time as though they're trying to perform ninety five percent of the time but they're not really preparing planning for syncing to hear that you've got that same Since when you're working in that executive oh another thing is they fault. It's that old saying that. Not Emit businesses is totally reactive and there is an element of of being reactive. Obviously where the world is very fluid a bedlam oi plan the betty arrivals to react and take advantage of that. I think organizations that are very Haka. Formats very adaptive very agile. They're able to do that because they assistance. In prices a very established but the site not very onerous that they provide or a framework in which to move and maneuver up the business. And when I do my embedded coaching where I worked for a minimum of ninety days with with an executive team. It's amazing that within it actually takes organizations up to ninety days to really figure out what they're trying to achieve and by default. You realize how over optimistic mystic The average leadership team with setting goals and I think that's the real challenge goals that are unrealistic People LOSE INTEREST. Then we become reactive because we create an excuse matrix where we say. Well Hi. It's no my fault. That account achieved the goal someone else's Some created this problem not may now which is the complete opposite way in which politics think which is well. The weather was bad. The talk was covered but did I did the best them ability to deal with that situation and did we have a policy and procedure in place which we call that standard operating procedures. Did we already have something in place that enable up to us to deal with that when it happens and when it happened even though we weren't expecting it with Conon you ought to do gonNA comes out of your memory and you figure out what to do so I think that's that's the cane in business is understanding everyday? Is the same business essays. How he prepared for the seasonal fluctuations that is is business Do we pay for the for the talk Tom. That is pick season for us as a business. And that's inevitably in retail spice. You Christmas as you've father's Dimas die. Valentine's dies or gear and in the offscreen industry at some say anything we call it the execution read the battle rhythm and and organizations often fantastic at that only make assumptions around that rhythm which is all every Christmas at slice. I let's not putting if it but when you when you sit down and you do the analytics on that you realize well actually it's different These ingrained behind it starts to become a more obvious. It's like people believe the story of how the business works. Not The facts so so again. As as a fighter pilot very uniquely thought Apollo it's create the strategy that they then go out and execute..
