"In the hospital in El Centro California are battling the virus tenser being brought in to handle even more cases. Correspondent Sara Sidner tells us how it's spreading through the hardest head county in Los Angeles County, which is the most populous county not only of the state But of America as a whole, with more than 10 million people, the mayor says, is partly due to younger people. People between the ages of 18 and 40 are those who are really helping to spread this virus because now they're looking at the rate they're doing positive. More than 50% of the people who are testing positive for this virus are in that group. She's reporting that they are out of ICU beds in YOLO County. San Francisco Mayor London Breed and supervisor Sherman Walton have tested negative for covert 19 after attending an event with a person who was aware that they had tested positive nonetheless from that end of the event anyway, despite her negative test breed, says she will continue to take precautions, which includes taking a second test next week. As California heads into the peak of the fire season. Jim Roop reports, officials are warning of a more difficult fight ahead of us. Thanks to the pandemic, Officials urge all residents within or near a wildfire to where they're mad. Asks in an effort to keep the firefighters safe and themselves. Also, evacuations will be more difficult. Officials were trying to figure out how in traditional evacuation shelter situations to ensure physical distancing. Evacuees will have their temperatures check. I'll have to wear masks and meals will no longer be buffet style from volunteers. More like memories, meals ready to eat similar to the military. All this is all the more reason, say officials to be extra vigilant to prevent fires.

"The flavor of parfait flavors are going to be hello areas absurdity and incredibly troubling disunity now I go back and forth enjoying their the chaos in the ugliness in the pettiness everything like that last night and this morning I was in a mood of of probably being a grown up of just the you know this is not good this is this is not good I actually you know I'm raising my kids in this country now wants to be strong and successful in free and that sector at Centro and and and I believe government is necessary but it should be barely involved in my life and it's just so freaking dysfunctional I want everybody's acting like children if your kids are acting like this you know yeah you give a lecture about getting their act together right and it's just it's just it's it's it's not good it's hilarious and I will make jokes about it but it's just it's not good there are several trends the ones you mentioned that are going in the wrong direction yes the I I will tell you this the nation has indoor worse and come out the other side a wiser for the experience here's a difference though thinking about this how does open there wasn't a deaf we've gone through some we've gone through some times are people really at each other both sides really at at each other over some serious questions though and you know easy to mail down you can't continue to be a country if half the country thinks labor's okay and half doesn't right in on the civil rights movement K. kind of similar if if you got a big chunks of the country that don't want to give a group of people the right to be citizens in a you know that those are this is just this moon to ours is just personal padding is the inability for grown ups to think well we work here we're all trying to accomplish something let's just put this aside and go forward right we can't have open animosity and screeching and fights here in the office just a you know to decide a metaphor everybody can understand you've got at least keep it cool part of it is the age of this mark phone and the internet we are in it is impossible to get our attention unless you go over the top we won't look up from our phones and I think that's due in large measure why the politics of today are the politics of the day some trouble often if you didn't see the speech last night and I didn't buy the wedding March I just can't do state of the union addresses every second of it I wanna paces to swell all right lasted about three applause breaks when they were brought pausing after every two words this at all all yeah I can't do this the real I'm like you with like but still like crackling of bags I just can't do it I love my country and care about my job so I watched every second and would be happy to explain it to you but having said that but so trump walked in he didn't look at Nancy handed or the speech and didn't shake her hand when she stuck her hand right yeah she rolled her eyes at various times through the holes all my goal please rolled her eyes she rolled her eyes she threw her head back she mouths the words the people in the audience at one point she went with her angry school marm act and was shot Xing somebody like up in and back to the right her right my life and and like kept at it like as the president speaking she isn't quite property you quiet up it was hello S. crazy then at the end she tore up the speech yes what a little over a year standing needed to see it I wish you the scene it because what would his reaction about ha ha ha ha well he certainly send it by now and that has access to a Twitter account the being her handshake thing was I believe it he only glance halfway adder for the purpose of seeing where she was because he knew we had to handle if you don't run into the podium and like hand the speech to the to nobody yeah it was a precaution to from a bag on his knee he handed it to her but never looked fully adder she extended her hand it's my belief he didn't see that now it's entirely possible here's the snob if you like to watch it it's entirely possible that that he what have snubbed her given the opportunity but it's it's not clear to me are you always approaching he's walking he's try Anthony's adjusting his jacket he's looking out of the crowd thank you hell yeah year reaches down he's got a couple of copies of the speech you Rooney grabs it minor minor offenses nodding along with a pleasant smile here's a copy depends governor pelo see the novel I'm startling towards snob yeah looks like it's nothing to me yeah I don't think number eight I I I don't think if you did see it he would have necessarily engaged in it anyway so how yeah well it's a tradition anyway and surely the well you should be aware of that's also a tradition for her to say it's my grand honor and supreme dignity or whatever it is right and she she left that out just said here's a president exactly open animosity well what are you know way more money is hot the headline there her cat like a beauty the hash tag easily distracted it's it's interesting and were watchin we got the video rolling of the state of the union address it's interesting because she's in a room full of normal people if you were in a Hollywood you'd be painting the crowd and she just be another person yes it when you're painting the crowd full of regular pale on made up normal looking people asymmetrical would you come to hurt like hell beauty what was I going to say there she is sandwiched between the wife and mom of a service family and Rush Limbaugh yeah which will have to talk about that later the Rush Limbaugh part of the speech so it how do you end this I've seen this happen with families I've seen it happen with coworkers I've seen it happen with like brothers and sisters and stuff like that it becomes a will you did this you did this you did this you can trace it back years right so until both sides are willing to say okay let's stop because trump can say what you called me insane and a Russian agent right white and look at you and shake your hand there enough when she would say you know you just you just keep going back further and further and further right right well I believe there will be a reconciliation is in in January at the inauguration it will last seven or eight minutes at most and on we will go and so there are true you know here's what you must never forget Sir and this is why both of us are small government guys there are so many trillions of dollars at stake all these people care about is whether they're in control of the trillions of dollars yeah they'll get rich off of it that's right that's for certain they get to play this game in people jab about it like a soap opera mail get rich I'll tell you this though from the point of view of the president and his party he healed it last night absolutely Slade it could not have gone better those who hated made it at the persuaded bulls in the Middle vow it was a winner so is the archive the keeps those signed copies the speeches are gonna take the torn apart and put it in a museum somewhere half too yes that be great let's introduce serving a squad there's our board operator Michelangelo pressing buttons Flippen toggles pulling levers are this morning with a good you know Nancy Pelosi was in the background as a present was speaking I was hoping she was gonna make like a shovel in motion or a you know put a finger in her throat or quotes and it was you at some point you just puts a fake moustache and glasses on and just stand Michael hold on to those lines they they fashioning but didn't quite go there put on a fake mustache glasses and cross your arms I'm asking start given sums up and as a side that's what I think of the entire C. span we can line up it's different who who there is positive schon whose smile lights up the room are you shown doing very well my favorite character from the SO two last night was I didn't know his name at the time but representative Billy long and he had the distinction of he was the one with a water of cash sticking up the top of his pocket I didn't notice that yeah let's see here but yeah apparently this is a movie he's pulled before when he knows he is you know when you have those I like the presence of the podium and you got like six people behind them very often just has a it it's a lot of cash I don't know if it's a twenty on front and then just pad never they're not going to pull in but what's he trying to accomplish yeah what's his message I don't know who's got money is given thumbs up the whole time I just thought that was a that was a that was a bold look hello me money might I don't know what the prices are the concessions at these SO two speeches are not if it's like arena beer prices and stuff so you just need to twenty is because you know it Hey it's at least a twenty every time you go to concerts are made to go out and and and check out strippers afterward I don't know we reached

And according to the company any it's a feature some users have been requesting for a long time. UPDATES have a wave sneaking up on APPs some Netflix subscribers notice the appearance of variable. We'll play back. In mid October accompanying a slate of more mundane updates that improve brightness language and audio controls the idea some viewers like to speed beat up slow documentaries or watch old favourite faster. Alternatively viewers learning languages are watching instructional videos say exercise or cooking king often wish they could slow things down just a little bit but net flicks must not have thoroughly anticipated.

When do you think the Innovation Gurus must be running out of ideas and other one comes along. That's enough to make you shake your head and wonder who approve this. Such is the case with a new line of flavored spirits from the folks at Pickering's Gin in Edinburgh. The craziest of these new drinks will make you either head right to the liquor store or or hold your nose. Brussels sprouts flavored Jen. Yep you heard me right. Pickering's has made a gin based on what am I favored veggies. The Brussels flavored Jin is for the holiday season and we'll be sold in six packs of clear Christmas ornaments. According to the industry publication food dive each ornament it will hold about a shot of gin once you down it. You can hang that ornament on your tree or not pickering's was appropriately self deprecating almost almost sheepish in this statement released about the new spirit we know it sounds bonkers they said but the humbled sprout delivers a pleasantly sweet slightly. Nettie Jen Perfect for mixing they posted on their website but if the idea of mixing gin with the trendiest of cruciferous veggies just isn't your cup of tea well pickering's knows that to they'll also offer jenn spiked with cranberry spiced pear and cinnamon and plumbing ginger all in ornaments of course beyond the fact that the weirdness was enough to catch the eye of many editors face it we laughed what's up all the concept is part of a trend by Jean makers just to add plant-based flavors to their concoctions in an effort to persuade non gin drinkers that the juniper spirit is worth their while and you know it's. Working Fortune magazine reports that worldwide Jin sales rose eight percent from twenty seventeen to last year as people sipped on varieties tinted with rose citrus citrus grapefruit even rhubarb and Basil Not Kidding inspiring these editions the intensely crowded Jin Space. It's hard to stand out when the number of finalists in the best Scottish Jen competition numbers more than sixty companies in almost one hundred twenty Jin's and that doesn't even take into account count Jen's from around the world including the old British giant beefeater that company alone sold almost three million cases of Jin last year so so how does a start up break through the noise with attention getting innovations if you're marcus pickering and Mat Gamel two friends who launched pickering's things in a former dog Kennel and twenty thirteen and followed up by refurbishing an old fire engine to dispense cocktails through its hoses of course they did but Brussel Al- sprouts Brussels sprouts according to one survey by Catcher brand hinds. We don't know why they are the single most hated vegetable in America but pickering's is Scottish. You say while their neighboring Brits put the sprouts at the top of their most detested list to now he was truly yeah. I loved them roasted. Maybe with some garlic in balsamic vinegar or Bacon for the last few years. They've been huge on restaurant menus. That's apparently because like pickering's brings. Restaurateurs also get that yes.

The maximum penalty allowed by law. The fine was a disappointment to star Kist which should complain to financial hardship and asked to pay only fifty million but the hardship argument didn't sway. US District Court Judge Edward Chen who said in effect sorry sorry Charlie. It's possible that greed was the motivation for the price fixing scheme but desperation may have also played a row remember when tuna sandwiches were almost as popular populars. PB and J. in school lunches will not so much anymore. Over the three decades that ended in twenty-six tuna sales declined by almost forty percent according to the Wall Street Journal title the paper reports that millennials are turning away from processed foods in droves last year star Kist Marketing and Innovation Executive told the journal a lot of millennials. Don't don't even own can openers with no can openers and millennials kitchen doors both star-kist the industry leader and Bumblebee are struggling Bumblebee which earlier paid twenty five million dollars in fines is reported to be considering bankruptcy. Both companies were allowed to pay their penalties interest free over five years but star. Kist which is a subsidiary of a Korean company called Dongwon group has also warned that it may lay off some of its twenty six hundred employees. It's also weighing whether to move a plant from American Samoa to Thailand Star. Kist says the investigation is now officially over but it is hardly the end of high profile price-fixing vice fixing investigations in the food business in July. The Department of Justice launched a criminal investigation into alleged price-fixing in the chicken industry. It is investigating instigating whether poultry giant Tyson foods and pilgrim's pride among others colluded to keep those prices artificially high if the allegations turn out to be true you the chicken industry doesn't have its tuna compatriots possible reasons for pushing prices higher chickens after all aren't processed food and so the poultry poultry providers can't blame their problems on the dearth of can openers and millennials kitchens.

PBA DOT com slash B W daily they from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily happy Friday everyone we've made it. I don't know about where you are but it's still awfully hot down here. In Austin the kind of heat that's best treated with the day the movies or a nice cool dip in the swimming pool boy. Does that sound good. The problem is most of us. Don't have swimming pools and most public pools get drained after Labor Day. So finding a spot to swim hasn't been the easiest task ask until recently when a startup named swiftly decided to take the airbnb approached pools using the swiftly APP. If you have a pool in your backyard and you want to make a little extra money you can offer strangers the opportunity to rent it out by the hour for feet considerate the sharing economy underwater order in a good way since I'm actively looking for weekend swim spot I thought at tested out went to the website plugged in my city Austin Texas and chose the same day hey to see what I could find. At the last minute. My search turned up seven pools ranging in price from twenty dollars an hour at the east side country club to one hundred dollars an hour or for a private pool with a hot tub in someone subdivision at it'd be fair. The Country Club looked pretty stark and that hundred dollar an hour pool looked clean and peaceful but all this begs the question. Do you trust swimming in a stranger's pool. How clean is it and who else might be there the CO founders twenty-two-year-old CEO Benhamlat skin and his business partner Asher Weinberger say they thought of that they contract with local pool maintenance companies to make sure you won't find anything Hickey in your rented pool as for Privacy in the New Yorker writer Bruce Handy reported that simply tries to ensure that is well L. for instance handy says owners are supposed to keep their window shades down no spying allowed but when handy made a test visit in Long Island the owner was laws peering out the window. That's pretty creepy but it could be worse. We imagine for those pools that are labeled. Nude friendly swim please. Origins is our humble more like a teenager snow shoveling or lawn mowing business than a Silicon Valley Gig Economy Startup home from college in Lakewood New Jersey a couple of summers ago last skin got the idea while swimming in a neighbor's unused pool his family had been paying the neighbor for the privilege as Handy writes in The New Yorker Alaskan thought it could be a real business using Google Earth lasker found eighty pools nearby and contacted their owners all but four refused to talk to him but those four will they agreed to list their APU for rent and swiftly was born though at the time last game had no idea that it would eventually be a real business with pools in so far thirty thirty six states swiftly took off fast on the back of a homemade website and a newspaper at the business grew more than thirty pools in just a couple of weeks and and then lastly told Handy. MSNBC mentioned simply and Alaskans website crashed a year later. Alaskan dropped out of college to go full time with the new business today he and Weinberger have a professional website liability insurance for hosts and even rental Porta potties for hosts who are really busy to afford all of this simply charges the pool owners commissions and takes a small fee from swimmers. The metrics around the business seem a little loosey Goosey in one of the many articles covering simply the founders say some hosts. You're making four thousand dollars a month renting out their pools in other that number climbed to ten thousand to fifteen thousand dollars a month regardless of what the true earnings really are one thing is most likely true for many families. The backyard Dr Pool begins as an enthusiasm and winds up as a wasteland swiftly turns it back into something thoroughly useful. How long will it take for a rival pool. Sharing during company to pop up possibly not very long but for now swiftly doesn't appear to have a head to head or should we say a pooled pool competitor but within the wider recreation industry will there are more and more airbnb like apps for almost anything you want to do you could choose a different recreation creation sharing.

PBA DOT com slash B W daily they uh from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business worse daily on this Thursday September twelfth. You know that Ole joke someone goes to a Cadillac Shin raises her hand to scratch your nose and all of a sudden she finds she's bid on and won a cow. That actually happened to my producer years ago. Although luckily she didn't have to take it home well think about that while you think about this. Amazon is testing out a system that would allow you to well will raise your hand to pay for stuff at the checkout counter instead of Swiping your credit card or waving your phone at a scanner you just hold up your hand nearest scanner without actually truly touching it. No you might not buy a cow by mistake but I can imagine a few things that could go wrong but let's get serious for a second the system. Amazon John is experimenting with his code named Orville. Maybe after one of the Wright brothers who knows according to popular mechanics hand geometry was first patented in Nineteen eighty-five five making it ancient by high tech innovation standards the F. B. I. Says Hand Geometry has been widely used for things like employee attendance and access excess to protected places from the residential village at the nineteen ninety six summer Olympics to Walt Disneyworld to create a profile you lay your hand down on on a flat surface and a camera captures several photos of your hand and the shadows it casts the system then analyzes thirty one thousand data points and ninety measurements and translates them into a new Miracle Algorithm and while Ah an in-depth geometric hand profile this biometric technology technology is currently accurate to within one ten thousand of one percent but that's not good enough for Amazon which is trying to tune it up and make it accurate for it to within a millionth of one percent. Amazon is hoping to Roll Orville out at whole foods within months to use it an Amazon prime customer would create a hand profile and link it to their Amazon account once that's done to check out. You'd hold up your hand to a special scanner. Checking out would take only three three hundred milliseconds. Give or take a millisecond. If you're truly time starved you'll appreciate the dramatic improvement. A typical checkout now takes a full three to four seconds. According to the New York Post right now. Amazon workers are testing out old Orville by hand scanning snacks from a handful of vending machines in Amazon's John's New York offices why use hand geometry rather than say facial recognition concerns over surveillance make most consumers rather rather wary of being tracked that way but Amazon may be banking on the notion that we've gotten so used to using our fingerprints to unlock our phones or access APPs. We won't worry about sharing our hand. Profiles still a privacy expert interviewed by The New York Post warned that if someone hacks stores system they they could steal the stored hand profiles solving that identity theft problem would be an even greater nightmare than the ones. We're already familiar with. She said dead according to an email newsletter called the Hustle Amazon is far from the only tech company interested in using our physical bodies to make shopping easier this week apple patented a watch strap that can identify US via the skin on our wrists and use that skin data to speed up the checkout process as the hustled says it's all part of a plan to take all of the friction out of paying for things the easier and faster it is to check out of a store. The less we feel the pain of paying they tell us and when we don't feel the pain of paying you guessed it we spend more money. I'm wondering this business daily would pay raise your hands. Would you use your hand to check out a whole foods or any other store. Why or why not tweet at business we'd love to hear from. I'm David Brown back back with you tomorrow.

I'm David Brown and this is business awards daily on this Monday September ninth while you probably heard the headlines Walmart will no longer sell handgun ammunition in announced the change one month after twenty two people were shot and killed in a Walmart store in El Paso Texas. You'll also stop selling certain kinds of ammunition intended for hunting rifles but which can be used so-called assault style rifles as well. USA Today reported Walmart Mart currently sells about twenty percent of all ammunition sold in the US these actions it says will reduce that percentage to somewhere between six and nine percent. Walmart sells far fewer handguns ammunition. Currently the chain sells handguns only in Alaska. Those sales will end as well. The company stopped selling selling assault style rifles in two thousand fifteen and raise the age of all gun buyers to twenty one last year following the mass shooting in Parkland Florida in a memo to employees posted the Walmart website last Tuesday. CEO Doug McMillan said that he was moved to action by the El Paso shooting but also by numerous other events just in the past month alone own a few days before to employees were fatally shot by another employee in a Walmart in South Haven Mississippi since El Paso there urban mass shootings in Dayton Ohio and Midland and Odessa Texas all of which CEO McMillan referenced in his memo Social Media Lit up with calls for Walmart to get out of the firearms business immediately. After the passer shooting Walmart employees organized a walkout protesting Walmart's business and an employee led change dot org petition calling for Walmart restrict firearm sales and and both open and concealed carry in its stores received one hundred forty thousand signatures the Washington and Post reported Walmart is now asking customers not to carry guns into both Walmart and Sam's clubs in the twenty two states that have open carry laws in the memo. McMillan says it's doing so because workers and customers have been frightened by quoting here multiple incidents since El Paso where individuals attempting to make a statement and test are responsive responsive entered our stores carrying weapons close quote. He added that some customers carrying lawfully unintentionally created situations where employees call all law enforcement and evacuated stores by asking customers not to carry openly. Walmart is hoping to avoid future incidents. McMillan said the chain will continue to to allow people with permits to carry concealed weapons where concealed carry is lawful. Walmart said it will sell out its current inventory of ammunition. It didn't specify the size is or value of that inventory nor long expects to take before it runs out the chain is attempting to balance the new policies while still serving hunters and other sportsmen and keeping gun rights advocates in mind it will continue to sell long barrel deer rifles and shotguns along with hunting apparel and accessories gun control and gun rights advocates advocates reacted predictably with gun control activists welcoming these moves by the country's largest retail chain and pressuring Walmart to go further on the other hand the the NRA called Walmart's policy changes quote shameful still CEO Doug Macmillan wrote to the White House and Congress advocating for stronger background checks he called on Congress to renew debates on the assault weapons ban stopping short of endorsing the ban outright hours after Walmart made its announcement cement kroger the country's largest grocer also announced it would ask customers not to carry openly in its doors. The supermarket chain ended gun and ammunition sales in the months following the Parkland shooting. Walmart's biggest brick and mortar competitor target has been called the quote Liberal Walmart mostly for its stance on guns runs. It doesn't sell firearms or ammunition. In the early nineteen nineties it stopped selling toy guns designed to look like the real thing and it asked customers not to carry firearms arms into its stores five years ago in twenty fourteen. CEO McMillan says Walmart serves more than sixty percent of America's consumers in any given month month have given Walmart's pervasiveness. It's new gun. Policies may cause real change in part by spurring other companies like Kroger to follow its lead. One thing is for sure. These moves are certain to inspire even more intense debates between gun control and gun rights advocates. Hello from one this business Wednesday.

The first costco in china open just as the trade war between the u._s. and china reached new heights but none of the tension between the two countries was evident on opening day. Tariffs didn't stop chinese customers from scooping up everything from giant teddy bears to pizza ovens luxury handbags maine lobster multi chinese alcohol and costco's store branded signature nuts. Indeed shoppers were so frenzied that some got physical to get what they wanted. The washington post reported that customers were grabbing for portions of pork while the butcher was still slicing it new stores overwhelming popularity may not have come as a surprise to costco leadership however which planned the launched launched religiously and took their time but its magnitude came as a surprise to observers of the chinese grocery business say foreign operators have struggled there until until recently chinese shoppers preferred local stores forcing foreign supermarket chains to concede defeat britain's tesco spain's dea and france's dances carrefour have all left china according to the financial times. Germany's metro is in the process of pulling out costco competitors.

Chinese shoppers have very specific needs so merchandising for costco's. I store was key to a successful launch for instance. They want both local products like the salted duck eggs alley and heavily discounted luxury. Sorry goods from abroad like costco's maine lobsters and luxury handbags. They also like to see new products offered often might golden and american branding executive who's slipped in shanghai for almost twenty years managed costco's pre launch promotion. He says costco sold more membership cards pre-opening then in any other market and chalk that up in part to costco's careful merchandising with thousands of memberships presold golden new opening day would be we crowded but he added that the members exuberance was surprising especially in shanghai where people tend to play it cool cool they they were not so many shoppers stream to costco for miles around that the traffic outside came to a standstill local officials demanded that kosco osco closed the store early for safety sake beginning on the stores second day.

Dot com slash b w daily in <music> from wondering i'm david brown and this is business wars daily on this tuesday september third. I just can't help what myself a twitter war between popeye's and chick-fil-a is made some people just as bad as wet hands okay now. That's off my chest seriously. If you haven't heard about this twitter award. Let me get you caught up on august twelve popeye's debuted a new chicken sandwich called simply the sandwich. It was the fast food chains biggest launch of a new menu a new item in thirty years and as many observers have noted popeye's chicken sandwich seemed an awful lot like chick fil a.'s classic delicacy crunchy batter fried chicken pickles and spicy or bland mayonnaise squished you know brioche bun to some it was outright fast food plagiarism and two others. The popeye sandwich was just <hes> finger licking good on twitter one. This jato tweeted popeye's spicy chicken. Sandwich is the best thing i've ever had in my entire life. Clearly that couldn't stand not if you're chick-fil-a in a very mild case of poultry peak aac chick-fil-a reminded the twitter verse which fast food chain rightfully owns the chicken sandwiches storied legacy. The company posted a math problem bun plus. The chicken plus pickles equals all the love for the original. Get it you saw it here. First chick-fil-a wanted to remind everyone politely of course since since chick-fil-a must protect its reputation for stellar customer service it wouldn't do to be snarky well as twitter wars do this one blew up feeling thing henpecked twitter's had to respond and they did in huge flocks so popeye's which originated in louisiana and is now headquartered in florida fought back with just two carefully chosen southern words words which in other circumstances could inside a schoolyard brawl over a re tweet of chick-fil-a fillets math problem popeye's asked y'all good and with that as buzzfeed wrote the gauntlet was thrown twitter became a buzz as it is wont to do and for a few minutes there the heat was not about political fights but about who makes the best fried chicken sandwich naturally lesser chicken sandwich sellers wendy's shake shack rush to join the fight and every poultry player benefited gaining likes re tweets and followers but none more so ban popeye's which picked up twenty five thousand new followers in just a few days c._n._b._c. reported in the real world popeye's was loving this twitter war and the sales it spurred knowing that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Some customers tried to sell their sandwiches for hundreds of dollars. The washington post reported popeye's ran out of chicken sandwiches in some locations and began warning that they could soon become as scarce as hen's teeth then had happened. They ran out store by store and they had to post handwritten signs on their windows. Telling anxious diners that there were no more of the sandwiches by august twenty six six just fourteen days after launch there was nary a popeye sandwich to be found from coast to coast and that of course spark yet more tweets by customers clucking clucking their disapproval to that popeye's tweeted it will soon bring back the sandwich permanently this time now this being twitter in two thousand nineteen the controversy he did spark a lot of serious discussion and a superbly written piece in vox about the health of factory farmed poultry the labor conditions on those farms and in fast food restaurants and the exhaustion of popeye's workers toiling sixty hours a week because of our love of batter fried birds and it spawned a lot of other political talk to along with discussion about the racial racial differences in the markets for chick-fil-a popeye's but we won't get any of that here instead for the final say or we should call it the final cluck perhaps we'll turn to food writer and soul food scholar adrienne miller who says i thought it was a very fun food fight and nothing deeper than that although like the thousands on twitter miller miller couldn't resist weighing in i've had both sandwiches. He says and i give a slight nod to popeye's from what i've read. This is business wars daily. Now we cannot resist which sandwiches your favorite tweet us business wars. We really want to know hey.

Dot com slash b w daily <hes> <hes> uh from wondering i'm david brown and this is business wars daily at the start of a new week happy labor day friends for those of you who have a smart watch. We have a question. How necessary do you find. We're betting that you just might leave the house without it sometimes but that your smartphone phone is always with you that sound familiar well the makers of smart watches or on a quest to make them just as essential to our everyday lives as our smartphones are and to do that apple and rival fit have been transforming their watches from relatively simple fitness trackers into potentially life-saving digital health devices. You may have heard our story in february about fitbit and apple watch users who said their lives were saved when they're smart watches alerted them to very fast or very slow heartbeats and they sought medical help will now fit bid is transforming its devices into accessories that do everything from tracking your heart rate to your weight loss to your sleep and beyond last week it announced a new ten dollars a month subscription service called fitbit premium. The service offers workouts access to health coaches and personalized health reports but you can and bring to your doctor. The company also announced the next version of its smartwatch the versa too in a humorous ad campaign called. What else could they do. Fit bit implied that diversity versity can do pretty much anything. One of the most significant changes is that you can now talk to the versa using amazon's alexa voice technology the fitbit ad campaign shows users ranging from herod workers to sweaty exercisers commanding the versa to to delay a meeting call up a spotify playlist ensured that they're entree really is begin even provide conversation fodder for a first date. The implication is that the verse two is essential to helping you get through your days as the campaigns punchline. The versa too can do virtually everything you could want but it can't predict whether you'll get a second date. The two hundred dollar our watch will go on sale. September fifteenth behind the humor is a serious likely painful transformation of fitbit strategy for the last couple of years the price your apple watch soared word in sales while fitbit's business struggled analysts say shoppers were willing to pay higher prices for more features including apples e._k._g. App and a fall detector hector up against such tough competition fitbit has had a tough time. Its stock price was down to less than three dollars. A share prior to this announcement so fitbit's bits leaders are attempting to morph the device maker into a software and services company that will generate profits from subscriptions starting with the new fitbit premium sure sure the initial service offers consumer wellness services but i wonder whether fitbit's devices and future smart watches from all companies will continue to be seen as fun consumer boomer trackers or were they'll cross the line and become outright medical devices after all fitbit promises that subscription service will eventually help you manage of chronic conditions like diabetes heart disease high blood pressure and sleep apnea and fitbit claims all of the data you'll be able to track will help your physician improve. Move your care as fit transformed from a hardware company into a software services maker. It's prophets are taking a hit but overtime. Fitbit won't just just be more help centric business. It's likely to become financially healthier too <music> from wondering this is business wars daily. Hey listen if you like our show.

It's every manager's nightmare chimaera public mistake one so obvious factually inaccurate but there's just no hiding it. That's exactly what happened to the marketing department. At mountain dew the iconic connick soda brand owned by pepsico back in june. The brand launched a campaign called the do nited states intending to celebrate the uniqueness of all fifty states is it designed bottle specific to each state and promised prizes to soda drinkers who collected all fifty but it made one glaring geographical error over on one map. It mistakenly assigned ownership of the upper peninsula to wisconsin for the record. The upper peninsula belongs to michigan. That's the twenty six thousand thousand acres of land that separates lakes michigan and superior as fast company notes yeah. It's hardly a priority for most fortune five hundred companies but not surprisingly residents of the upper peninsula or the u._p. Is the call. The region were quite miffed. The guy who runs the u._p._s. twitter handle a man named bugsy sailor triple triple dog dared the brand to come out with a special upper peninsula branded mountain dew and to give a free case to every u._p. Resident well. We wouldn't be too surprised to find business schools using this case as an example of what to do when you're caught in a blender pepsico took bugsy sailor seriously asli that's right within a day mountain dew vice president of marketing nico- portwood got in touch with sailor assured him the brand would make a special upper peninsula salah bottle now. They needed suggestions for what to put on it. Portwood asked residents of the u._p. They're called uber's to tell pepsi co. What was special about the remote region then the brand designed new label and plastered on nine hundred six bottles of mountain dew gave the sodas away at the upper peninsula state fair where by the way they also gave the ninety thousand attendees chance to dunk mountain dew employees in a dunk tank talk about eating crow more seriously. The brand also redid digital t._v. commercials commercials giving the upper peninsula back to its rightful state on the map. What pepsico couldn't do was to sell the branded soda to come out with quickly one thing to navigate the tricky approval processes and regulations necessary to put it on store shelves well that would have taken too long portwood told fast company in the process mountain dew grew hundreds of thousands of new fans on social media mostly from the u._p. And got a boatload of publicity so what could have been an embarrassing flop turned into a refreshing win for a brand that unlike most sodas is still doing well rival coke as the country's most popular soda but surprisingly mountain dew is the fourth most popular soda in the country.

He began shake shacks international expansion early on opening a restaurant in moscow after launching only three or four in the u._s.

Got you interested in the whole idea of there being and lack of medical facilities doctors in rural communities, so Laura Mico director, and I were both a children of doctors ourselves. So we have a long standing interest in health and healthcare issues, and we were reading in two thousand fourteen about communities that after the passage of the Affordable Care Act. They were still struggling to meet the needs of the communities because there weren't enough doctors. And so we set out on a six month journey of talking to people all around the country involved in rural medicine and primary care and trying to find out what is today's country doctor so to speak look like in rural America, it's face. Seeing so many challenges. I know that a lot of people talk about food desert's in parts of the country where they can't get healthy groceries. They've been talking about now news desert's where you can't get local news. It sounds like you've come up with the same thing when it comes to healthcare and doctors sort of a medical desert for people who are in areas. How far do some people have to drive to find a facility that will help treat? What the have? Yes. So we definitely have discovered medical desert's. We see patients in our clinics that in the film that have to travel an hour to go to their primary care practitioner, and especially when you're looking at communities that are strained financially. That can be a real challenge not just in terms of the cost of the gas to get to the doctor. But also the time taking time from work. And juggling. So many different things tells a little bit about the communities, and then were there any that really stood out to you that this is a real problem in this particular area of the country. So are filmed the providers is set in northern New Mexico in the towns of last Vegas, New Mexico. The other last Vegas and espe- in Yola New Mexico and the clinic that we set the film at El Centro family health. They have a number of sites and they cover over twenty two thousand square miles of northern New Mexico, which is about the size of West Virginia. And so their clinics are really serving a need in the community for healthcare and people otherwise wouldn't be able to access care and. El Centro family health. The clinic where the film is set is a federally qualified health center, and it really serves as the safety net in these small town communities in northern New Mexico. How big a deal is the opioid crisis, and these places the opioid crisis is really damaging communities, and what we've found particularly in northern New Mexico, which actually before the current opioid crisis has a long history of heroin use dating back to the Vietnam war that what we see a lot is intergenerational use and really a cycle of addiction trauma, and poverty and the stories in the film show that healthcare can really be a point of intervention in that. Cycle the doctor in that you profiled in the documentary his father died of an opioid overdose. While you were filming. Yes. So first of all, he's actually not an MD. He's a physician assistant. And so we're seeing in rural America advanced practitioners, so nurse practitioners and physician assistants really becoming the workforce. And yes, over the course of us making the film is father dies of an overdose. Which was absolutely devastating in the film. You also see his sister struggling with addiction repealing the Affordable Care Act is that a big deal to people in these areas. Are they on that kind of healthcare? Do they have their own insurance in New Mexico did expand, Medicaid, and that has really dramatically impacted how many? People can access care in the community. And the clinic that our film is set at the vast majority of the people at the clinic are on Medicaid or Medicare and without that expanded access to Medicaid. They would really be in trouble. Really what we see often in rural communities is practitioners come for a few years, and then leave and that lack of continuity of care is really damaging because patients than don't trust the medical system. Really, those long term relationships are absolutely critical to patients health doesn't sound like people are moving into reviews rural communities drastic pace, but any solutions. Absolutely. So the research shows that the best way to get more healthcare providers into. To rural communities is to grow your own..
