White House Refuses to Acknowledge We're in a Recession

"46, Montage of CNN and MSNBC saying that a recession is two consecutive quarters of falling GDP, and yet The White House refuses to acknowledge we're in a recession, play tape. Two consecutive quarters of negative growth, the definition of a recession is a decline in output for two consecutive quarters or about 6 months. A recession is just two consecutive quarters of economic decline. When we talk about the possibility of a recession, what is a recession? A recession is two consecutive quarters. Two consecutive quarters. Two consecutive quarters, two consecutive quarters of declining GDP because as you know, it's two consecutive quarters of down GDP. That signals it is actually a definition of a recession. Now, that was all when Trump was president, and now they refuse to say this on TV. This is Biden's press release. Quote, coming off last year's historic economic growth. Let's pause. Last year did not have historic economic growth. It was fake growth, brought to you by a potemkin village House of Cards, a sugar high. You know what that's like saying? It's like saying, boy, I ran really far after chugging an entire leader of Coca-Cola. Yeah, but good luck running a marathon on that. You don't have any sort of nutritional basis to keep the fire going, man. It's like trying to build a campfire in the wild. I'm just kindling. You're going to need some firewood, you're going to need some sustainability. Go eat a bunch of sugars, go eat a bunch of kit kats, M and ms and skittles and try to play a basketball game. You'll have a lot of energy for about 5 minutes. Biden continues and regaining all the private sector jobs lost during the pandemic crisis. It's no surprise that the economy is slowing down. Oh, it's slowing down. As the Federal Reserve acts to bring down inflation, but even as we face historic global challenges, we're on the right path. We'll continue through this transition stronger and more secure. They love that word transition.

How Should We Approach Big Business? Newt Gingrich Explains

"I want to ask you, it's not just about government power, though, that gives people anxiety. It's also the amount of cultural and corporate power that the left has been able to assume. You talk about this in the book, but how are we to approach Google that could arguably be just as or even more powerful than parts of our government, or Disney that has control over our children's, what their consuming. Big government socialism is it also incorporate cultural and economic power? Yeah, it has to and also, let me take those two examples. We clearly are going to have to ultimately set some kind of rules of the road for these big Internet companies. I mean, we would not allow AT&T or Verizon to have the kind of control over our communication, our conversations, that these companies now exercise. In terms of Disney, I think somebody ought to be following a stockholder lawsuit. Yes. The Disney president made a decision, which has cost Disney and enormous amount of money in the collapse of a stock. And they ought to be held accountable for the when you start making on economic policies. You know, the same thing happened in Atlanta with the Major League Baseball All-Star Game where Coca-Cola and Delta two of the biggest corporations in Georgia, both of them acted against their own economic interest by siding on a totally false lie. Siding with the left and demanding that they All-Star Game being moved.

Instead of Boycotting Walmart, Host a Buycott of MyPillow

"But what do you do about the walmarts of the world? What do you do about the Disney's of the world? What do you do about Coca-Cola? Major League Baseball. The NFL. What do you do? Do you just say I can not, and here's my argument, here's the Disney example. My Disney argument is this. Why should I let those bastards deprive me of taking my granddaughter to Disney World? You know what I mean? Am I cowardly? Is that wrong of me? Is that the wrong approach? Instead of a boycott, I submit, we do buy cuts. We do a buy cut and we lift my pillow up on a day like today and in the days and weeks and months to come so that my pillow survives everything that's being thrown their way. But and if you choose not to shop at Walmart, if you choose not to go visit Disney World, if you choose not to watch another Major League Baseball game, I get it. But what do you say?

"coca cola" Discussed on The Final Lap

"What's going on, everybody? Rowdy dragon back again with this week's final up weekly fantasy update. Well, how about that all star race? Yeah. I got nothing. And we don't have any stage leaders or stage winners or winners or anything to talk about. So I'm just going to jump in here real quick like and give you some picks, some guys to look at for your team builds this weekend. It's a long 600 mile race. So we got to look at drivers that can do the distance. So starting with the first car a Chevy. The 9 car chase Elliott, he's got ten races run here at Charlotte Motor Speedway with an average finish of 11.9. He's got 5 top 5 finishes in that time. That's 50% chance at a top 5 finish for you. He's got 6 top tens. That's 60% chance at a top ten. So that's pretty good odds there of getting a top ten, but those top tens don't do you a whole lot without stage points. Chase has collected stage points in 13 out of the 20 stages he's run here. He doesn't have any stage wins, but he does have four second place. In those ten races, chase also has two DNFs. Now with those 246 laps led that gives Elliot 24.6 laps led per race and looking at the last three races, he hasn't finished outside the top two. Looking at the last four races, Chase has an average finish of 2.3. So Chase's recent numbers are the best for him. Let's see if he can keep that average up for you this weekend. Moving on to the Toyota territory, I got two drivers coming, not sure how the Fords are going to look this weekend. They did have a Ford come up and win the all star race, but I think that was just due to a lot of misfortune by the other drivers ahead of them. I'm still looking at the Toyota's. It is approaching summer, the Toyota's run good in the summertime and that hot weather. The Toyota's are starting to come in to their own right now. They may have figured something out. So I think it's a good opportunity to take them in your lineups once again this week, starting with the 19 car, Martin Truex Junior, he's got 30 races run here, with an average finish of 14.1. He's finished in the top 5 7 times there in the top ten, 13 times. And Martin Truex does like to lead laps here at Charlotte. He's got a 1059 laps led, which yields about 35.3 laps led per race. And he's got three wins to his credit here at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Martin's stage point picture, he's got 9 out of 20 stages run one stage win and four second place finishes in those stages. Looking back to 2016 tricks is when garnered him a perfect driver rating of one 50. He led 392 laps out of 400 that year. Also, he has zero DNFs at this track as well. So Truex does have these staying power to get it done on these long races. Going back to his one 50 driver rating. That was also put up by Kyle Larson in the last race. Here at this track, Kyle Larson led all the stages one two and three, keeping in mind that there are four stages here, and don't forget you can wait up until the end of the third stage this week to make your garage driver change out. Okay, so now that's true X we've got the next Toyota, the 18 car Kyle Busch. He's got 33 races run. 14.3 is his average finish here at the track. He's got 15 top 5 in those 33 races. 20 top ten. That's about a 45% chance at a top 5. He's got 20 finishes in the top ten spot as well. And looking at his laps led average it stands just below 44 laps per race at Charlotte. That's the best out of all the drivers. Currently, looking at Kyle's stage point picture, he has 13 of 20 stages completed and four stage wins to his credit. Now, if you plan on using the 18 be aware that he has 6 DNFs. But imagine if he had none, like his teammate in the 19 car, who both have over 30 races here. Imagine what Kyle's average finish would look like here. So Martin's average finishes 14.1 with zero DNFs. Kyle's 14.3 with 6 DNFs. If he can patiently survive the 600 miles, bush should have a great finish on Sunday. So there you have it. Real quick, real easy. So everyone go out there and enjoy your weekend the long weekend holiday weekend to get that barbecue fired up and let's go out there and chase down dugong our current points leader. All right guys, thanks again for hanging out and listening to the final app quickly fantasy segment of the show. I am rowdy dragon with talk to you again next week..

"All their early access forecasts as soon as the race is over. You've got next week's early forecast on Toby Chris dot com slash race weather and we keep updating their forecast throughout the week for NASCAR, IndyCar, Formula One, supposed to be doing some NHRA and msa stuff as well. Whatever kind of weather you need for what other racing event you're wanting to watch What a very cool niche, by the way, or is it niche? I don't know. Having meteorologists that love NASCAR and racing so much that that's what they choose to do. Yeah, that's really cool and they're really good at what they do. Literally they give you odds of what you think the chances are of racing and stuff like that when there's weather in the area and they're usually pretty spot on. And weather is a huge factor in racing for the most part. Certainly, certainly, even if it's not, whether it be rain or anything like that, temperatures are a huge impact on the performance of the cars and things like that. So there's a lot of impact with the weather. Yeah, nicely done with that partnership very cool. Yeah. So let's get into the 2022 NASCAR all star race from Texas Motor Speedway. We begin with the all star open and advancing from that thing are Ricky Stenhouse junior, Chris buscher, Daniel Suarez, and Eric Jones was the fan voted in driver. Those were all the stage winners. Yeah. Yeah, so that was interesting. I was shocked kind of to see the 43 car get voted and I know they've got a huge fan base. They're the panty fans and stuff like that, but sing Eric Jones get in by the way the fan vote was kind of shocking to me. Was it sympathy for the ridiculously long pit stop with the lug nut? You know, that might have played into it, honestly. That might have gotten him a few extra votes that they wouldn't have gotten. Right, all those poor guys, let's put them in the all star race. Right, come on, let's give them something to be happy about. Could be, it could be 24 race, 24 cars raced for the $1 million prize money. And as we called last week, this was probably the worst all star race in the history of mankind. We did kind of call it. Yeah, we did. We knew. Much like your race weather people. We called that this was not going to be good. Yeah. The next gen car's performed great at mile and a half this year, but not even the next gen car can save this just abysmal show at Texas Mars B way. Can Texas survive bad showing after bad showing like this? At some point, it gets to be too much. It wants people stop showing up, which it's getting closer to that happening there at that track. This was the all star race and it was dismal. It was. Yeah, I mean, it was bad. You know, I mean, they globed everybody to the center of the track and try to do tight camera shots. But you saw ends of it were empty. Nobody there is no longer used for seating. It's just what happened. What happened is just the racing? Well, the racing product has gotten bad, obviously. There's no real promotions happening in the local area anymore because I used to live in Texas. And I used to see how much it was promoted everywhere, every radio station would talk about it. There'd be billboards everywhere, and there's just so much less of that nowadays. So as much as we made in front of Eddie gossage, is that the reason? Well, I mean, it was still kind of dwindling towards the end of his tenure there, but you kind of have to wonder if maybe some of the things he did early on is the reason that that track was successful. All right, let's get into the stages. Stage one, Kyle Busch was the pollster for this event, and won the stage, leading every single app. Right. But that was it for Kyle, really. Because things would change shortly after that, wouldn't it? Yeah, in the next stage, he wrecked from a flat tire.

Charlie Breaks Down Unique Characteristics of the Georgia Electorate

"A fan of Brian Kemp, I've spoke about it openly and I believe that David perdue would be a great governor. Now, Donald Trump has endorsed David perdue as David perdue was mounting a primary challenge against Brian Kemp. But you must understand that the political landscape of Georgia is very much a good old boys network. It's a lot of local counties back slapping. Did you come to the local high school football game? Did you get good tickets at the university of Georgia football game? And I don't want to accuse Brian Kemp of anything illegal. That's not what I'm doing here, but it definitely is a patronage system in Georgia. Now, some states that really isn't the case. I can tell you right now, Arizona is not a good old boys network. There is that kind of McCain group in Arizona, but in Arizona, if you haven't lived here, if you just kind of moved here, you can, excuse me, you can kind of upstart and you can kind of run. Now you've got, of course, there's an establishment you have to navigate. But Georgia, it's a very much of a, who were you? Did you check the boxes? You know, were you able to take care of the right people? So Brian Kemp made a brilliant political move where he basically metaphorically neutered David perdue, where he put the more powerful Purdue, which was sunny perdue, I believe his name, which was, I think they're relatives on that mistake. I think their cousins and he appointed them to some sort of university board, which all but basically destroyed the fundraising ability of the entire Purdue network. So Kemp took care of a fellow Purdue in the family, which kind of, let's say, blunt was thwarted a lot of David perdue's ability to be able to continue to raise capital. Now, David perdue made a decision not to run for the United States Senate. That looks like it's going to be the great Herschel Walker. But Kemp worked the state, Kemp was able to maximize corporate donations. There's a lot of, there's a lot of powerful corporations in Georgia, CNN, obviously, is headquartered in Atlanta. I don't think they gave money to Purdue. Coca-Cola is headquartered in Atlanta, at least they said they hated Brian Kemp, Home Depot, was headquartered for quite a while in Atlanta, Delta Air Lines for a while was headquartered in Atlanta. There's a lot of there's a lot of companies that have a significant presence in the state of Georgia. It's a, it's always kind of prided itself on being a quote unquote, pro business state. To a fault, by the way, where Georgia invited Hollywood liberals for years via this phony and crony tax credit system where you bring in the Will Ferrell's and the Kevin Hart's of the world where they become like pseudo citizens of Georgia and they overly finance these elections. One of the many reasons why Georgia has become a battleground state which never should have become a battleground state. But

"In Bitcoin, is Bitcoin a generic like down from the south. If you order, if you want a Coke, you're getting Coca-Cola. It ain't a generic for perhaps or anything else. Is Bitcoin a generic term or is there a Bitcoin and you got Ethereum? You got others out there as well. Let's start off with a basics. Sure. Those are fantastic questions. And these are complicated topics. So I think sometimes people are almost scared to ask these questions, but it's great to start from the basics. And so for a while, people were trying to create a currency for the Internet. That would allow for commerce to be done, particularly international friction free. And one of the innovations of Bitcoin by this guy named Satoshi Nakamoto, it's not his real name, but what we call him that. Was to create a decentralized system. So there's no entity in charge. There's no CEO. There's no bank. There's no Federal Reserve. But yet through math, we're able to have a system that has now become known as Bitcoin with millions of users and holders. And so that was really the first and the only entity that was operating and doing this. And they've been around the longest. They have the highest market cap, the highest number of users, the most number of transactions. I should add that the technology has grown and changed over time. It's not like it stayed static. But all the other names that you've heard as well, such as Ethereum or other silly names sometimes like Dogecoin. They're not all silly, but a lot of them are named after dogs. Some of those have interesting different ways of solving similar problems. Ethereum in particular has grown quite large, so not as large as Bitcoin. Now those are more modern products in this ecosystem that generally have slightly different ways of solving a similar problem. But Bitcoin still remains the largest player. And we would argue that the number of users using this technology provides a bit more stability and concreteness to it having value for the future. But I'm not trying to give investment advice. As you noted, this is somewhat of a speculative asset. The prices go up, the prices go down. But I would know that actually the fluctuations have become a bit more constant than in the past.

How Biden and the Left Overreacted to Georgia's Mild Voting Reform

"Marched on and Georgia did the right thing to respond from all the irregularities and audits from the 2020 election and decided to pass a very kosher and mild voting law. Joe Biden responded to the Georgia voting law calling it Jim Crow two and says this makes Jim Crow look like Jim eagle, whatever that means. Play cut 59. And so I'm convinced that we'll be able to stop this because it is the most pernicious thing. This makes Jim Crow look like Jim eagle. Minister gigantic, what they're trying to do. And it can not be sustained. And do everything on my power, along with my friends in the house and the Senate to keep that from becoming the law. And then we saw the continuation of the alliance between people that run the government and people that run private corporations. We saw that foreshadowing on January 8th when they kicked Donald Trump off of Twitter and they destroyed a private company parlor. But then all of a sudden we saw delta, which you can not board a delta airline that voter right without an ID, then we saw Coca-Cola, which is a soft drink company which all of you should still be boycotting Coca-Cola, worthless company. And to go together where they decided to boycott the Georgia voting law and boycott George, even though their headquartered in Georgia, play cut 58. It is reassuring to see that for profit operations and businesses are speaking up about how these new Jim Crow laws are just antithetical who we are. And

Aligning Your Brand and Personal Values to Stand out in the Marketplace

"Today's world we have to stand out. We must stand out. So how can we align both our brands and our personal values that will allow us to stand out in the marketplace. Today i love that question. John you know. I've spent realistically the majority of my life being an entrepreneur at eight years old. I was knocking on doors selling boy scout stuff so i can fun trips by ten. I was taking candy from the candy store and selling it on the streets like literature survive at thirteen. Even though it's not great. I did sell drugs because i had to survive. And i've always been thinking about branding and marketing and you stand out in the marketplace. Ever since i was little because literally meant survival. And today i've been very very fortunate to work with companies like coca cola red bull for roses lynn's baby and tons other and of course my own brand think unbroken when you understand this about branding and marketing and standing out in the marketplace that your values can be the cornerstone for what people cradle alignment with. Then you can stand above those who do not have them. Values are everything. My values personally also correspond with the brand values of my business honesty kindness leadership self. Because i'm always thinking about who. I am every single day that allows me to parlay at with the brand that way when i'm approaching the ford facing marketing. I know exactly the message that i'm delivering if you do not know your values my challenge for us to figure that out as soon as humanly possible. I wouldn't even go to bed tonight unless you can decide. Who am i. And what do i stand for. Why because it's the old adage if you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything and having values individual and whether or not they correspond with your brand give you the ability to put your feet down in cement. The beginning of a legacy. Because what i'm always thinking about is when you look back and you think about the choices and decisions you made over the course of the last six months john. Were they alignment with your values. Were they in alignment with the brand. Were they in alignment with your mission because if you filter everything through your values i whatever that value may be for you and for your brand then you know that you will always be making the right choices the right decisions and choosing right actions.

Mexican Coke (MM #3755)

"The Maison with Kevin Nation. If you live anywhere with a growing Hispanic population, when you hear Mexican Coke, you get excited. I don't mean cocaine talking about Coca Cola because there's a difference between a Mexican Coca-Cola and a regular American Coca-Cola. It's all about the sugar that is used in America. They use high fructose corn syrup to sweeten a Coca-Cola in Mexico, bottle down there. It's all about pure cane sugar. It's the way Coca-Cola used to be back in the olden days but we switched to corn syrup. I think in the 1960s and 1970s and I used to think for sure it didn't matter. It was about the same thing. Really what, what is the Mexican Coke? Always comes in a glass bottle, which does make it colder, allows it to be colder than the plastic bottles of the cans. But when I had my first Mexican Coke a few years back, I was sold. It's not quite as sweet as the high fructose, corn syrup Americanized version of Coca-Cola, but there's something special, there's something refreshing and yes, it's the combination of being in the bottle and being the right temperature, and being just the right sweetness, Mexican Coca-Cola. If you ever see one on a menu, it's worth the extra money. Trust me on this month.

"A really Specific effort to to go to work in every department and get after whether that was simulation or downforce or chassis built or whatever it was we made improvements across. The board has shown up in better finishes at every racetrack. We've gone to other than just a very small handful of last year's results so we've definitely made gains and we're better The mile and a half have more than others And i think the road courses have picked up a little bit more than other so we think that we're in a good spot We're not done yet. We still got more work to go in. you know. we'll all be greedy in that sense that till you're winning every race and leading every lap. You're not done but there's been a definite gain in momentum and really proud of that as we've been been able to get through these first fifteen races now we gotta keep going and keep tweaking on it but some of it has come from getting past the initial struggles of last season without practice in finding ourselves with a good baseline starting point for every week. Something that's been able to carry over to a lot of different tracks And finding that baseline not only for our mountain half's but for road courses in four short tracks nor superspeedway cars has always been really good so we know we got speed there so it's all coming together in in a pretty good way here so we're we're pretty happy. We got got work yet but Definitely progress so. Chris six hundred and was watching from the stands that had a really good seed up top. And you guys are crazy like i. You know i didn't do that like i don't think our generation had to restart the way you guys do. We have. we have coming up. Explain how intense it is and how important those restarts are. Don't know. I don't think it was was me at first either. I think i was definitely in more in the boat with you that i felt like you. You kinda get through that initial fire off and then you sort it out but You've had to change that. You've had to get the point where more aggressive and the it's A look back at research from the six hundred and in half of them went really good and in two of them went really bad. So it's it's a toss of his trying to figure out how to make it really good every time whether that's Dive into the top and making it three wide running up there in. Pj one that nobody running yet Or wrapping the bottom and not leaving the white line down the straightaway. It was interesting to see way. Different lines workout. They are. they're crazy everywhere. We go right now. It feels like michigan or pocono It's it's all the time it's three or four wide just as soon as you get past start. Finish line up very wild Surprisingly clean through all of that. I feel like we've For the most part they would get out of them without any Any major incident so that's A bit surprising to me for for as wild as they've been from where i'm sitting. Well maybe that changes this sunday at cinema. Two road course on a restart is interesting and you said something christmas now. The kind of caught my eye. You said that you think saddam good opportunity for you and your team. I didn't really think there's a row course racer but it sounds like you've got some confidence there. Is that something that happened recently.

Naturally he came in with the years under his belt cup experience with everything that kind of took place with his twenty twenty season In let him go kind of pursue a passion that he hadn't erasing and kind of rejuvenate is drives To come back to nas cards earned his way back to nascar In go you know do all the right things at other right arts to compete at a high level every week. so his mindset's in a great place Obviously his skills are razor sharp. You proves that might lead of when he goes to the race all over the country and certainly in the cup series our team. We've been through a lot. The last few seasons certainly had some ups and downs. The last few seasons on the forty eight with a with jimmy. And and that was kind of the process of inter motorsports getting itself built back to germany to be And of course eight. We didn't close out. Some of the good runs that we had gone with jimmy So we kinda got seasoned along the way and we learned how to deal with adversity We learned how to you know app or finish a week before or something crazy happens bad luck and input another fast car on the racetrack. So now Through that kind of process of meath. We've learned how to kind of o'hanlon on what we need to do to prepare fast race cars every week. very thank all the guys here at the shop. They do such a great job. All the folks motor sports So i think there's a lot of different factors from kyle seidman from our side on the team that The timing of this just worked out really well cliff obviously on what hand things really couldn't go better through fifteen races. I think you guys have a clear championship favorites. You got two victories. But on the other hand kyle was on the show a couple of weeks ago and he said that we probably have four victories. If things had fallen right when you look back at their twenty twenty one so far four runner up finishes yet three in a row. Coming into the six hundred victory could have won the daytona road. Course race i do. You allow yourself to think at all like if this wasn't the first year together you guys might even have. I don't know four or five or six victories. If you were seems like there's a little bit of an acclimation process allow yourself to think about what could have been. Is that some of that circumstantial. How do you look at all that. Yeah i think that's a great question in really we've done So daytona recourse. You know we were the first running card that had the freshest ours at the end Spun out inside of kurt. Busch socal and i learned how to communicate to him who's pressuring him from behind knowing how many laps are left so that he doesn't feel so pressured in that situation to force himself into a mistake. led the most laps in atlanta. Got past late in the race lead. The most laps of kansas got asked late in the race at two speeding penalties at phoenix and You know came from the back pass. A lot of cars got back up into the top five So so the theme and to answer your question is every week after. He had a challenge. So beat face where. We didn't capitalize on the strong performance that we had a. We came back on monday morning. We both looked in the mirror. They're certainly things that i needed to do better to help them. Execute raised. There's things we don't. The car communication all the little up just a finesse and via the nuance that goes into making our cars fast and executing a good race i had to learn and improve the at to work on a few things with with the team but for the most team the strong and then kyle wanted to understand how to communicate through things that he could do better so we didn't waste each time and looking in the mirror making sure we learned from the mistakes that are going to be inevitable with any new pairing of a driver and crunchy of a coach player. Argument to say it in a competitive sport So you know facing those challenges learning from them I think really set us up for what we saw at charlotte the other night where thankfully we had a fast car. Kyle made a lot of you know well time moves on the track to you know have good injuries and impasse when he needed to We did you know. Fortunately keep up with a car throughout the night. We had to make some adjustments at the end and things came together. Where all those lessons that we've learned You know king to pay off. And now i think hopefully that that cadence amount rhythm of doing for the justice whereas the end they were right. I ain't off.

"And so they adopt these things, because in reality, it's a dumb company, and they don't actually care about any of this. They want to act as if they are doing the right thing, and they can check these boxes. And then they go down these roads because I will say a lot of people. Some people do not. Do not. Do you know the difference, but a lot of people don't you know to the point of like when you know you have a situation like my wife on Instagram. She's at Lisa Paige made me do it. And she was kind of just doing a little video where she the anti races. Baby book was there and she covered it up with another book because she's just making the point that he Bram Candy should not be teaching your baby's at. And if you should not be able to buy that book, a target, probably. Considering buying conservative books. The target is not an easy task. And when she did that the reaction by people who are attacking her was largely Hey, um, e. I can't believe this white woman doesn't even met imagining so offended that you're, um that your kid might not be a racist that you have to hide a book. Uh, because they don't even understand the difference between this left wing nutjob ideology. All of this woke nous times 10 crap that everyone has to deal with now is now being promoted as just the opposite of racism. She does not. It actually is racism. Racism is built into the book written into the book Discrimination is in the book by race. And now these companies are advocating racism and Glenn to to take it to another step here. This is why the California Constitution has things like well, we used to say we're not going to discriminate based on race and create and sex and gender and all those things. Now they took that out because to execute this philosophy, they have to discriminate on race, So they took it out of the constitution. So Tell me, Do you think that it's Coca Cola, saying We're stupid. We don't know what this is or we don't want the backlash from the left. Yes, And yes, And there's more, huh? Because when you're over in Davos, and you are looking to put together a corporate coalition for workplace racial justice. And there's explaining to you at the World Economic Forum. This this new world order that is coming this new great reset. Where corporations are going to be partnered with this global entity and your your governments. Wouldn't it make sense? To you if I said Yeah, we're only doing that. Because if we don't, we will probably only be able to sell Coca Cola in America, maybe for a limited time. But then if we don't jump on this bandwagon, we're going to start losing. All of these companies are all these countries because they're part of the great reset and if we're not part of the great reset We won't be able to do business. We won't be able to get banking. We won't be able to sell our product around the world. So the choices Yeah. We take a hit in America for a while because people are upset about it. But we win in the long run because and those other markets are so much more powerful now. Yep, and just Justus. Coca Cola knows the first time around. Being on the boat and the first on the boat. Is so much more profitable than being second or third or fifth on the boat, And in this case, you may not survive. If you're third in the boat.

But the christmas before when we were all able to move around that coca cola plant explicit narrow. The home of christmas done right. That's where the name comes from all these beautiful.

It's a chance to see it all coca cola plant and to see some great crossley ship in la dean displays wonderful place. That's actually a great segue to one of my other notes. Something that i felt like was a theme for this book more so even than the last one was the different places that were repurposing the coca cola buildings typically the bottling plants for concert venues and i know another one for like wedding venues a gathering hall which i really liked because again. It's one of these ways to bring people to a specific history but it's made relevant for today's social scene community. Whatever you wanna call it.

An art professor at the university of georgia got his students together and they formed a little group called the color of the world bright and they have gone around the state contracting making a ringlets with communities that have these signs that need to be restored and the that chapter tells about the different communities. Were they've gone. What the sign looked like before it was restored what it looks like now and and wyatt was restored. That and it's amazing. The effort is communities have gone to save our signs. You know it's a. Here's a the university. Professor this got his students involve as a learning process and then pick up a few bucks in the process. It's a great into into a wonderful thing to have the coca cola bureau zelter. I also picked out the very end of the section with georgia and specifically for columbus georgia. There's the picture of birthplace of coca cola so it sounds like there's well. Let's hope a friendly competition between columbus in atlanta claiming the birthplace of coca-cola. Can you tell me a little bit about that. In who wins f i. I'm a underdog guy. So i'm pulling for columbus. Well actually i guess it depends who you listen to. the supposedly. the truth of the matter is pemberton. invented the cer- created the surf's when he was in fact a druggist in calm. Okay and he went to. He moved to atlanta. Took the formula with him. And that's where it was actually produced. I think the backup the underdog story here One of the x. Archivist from coca cola on mr mooney goes with the theory that yes it was not in the developed in atlanta. It wasn't vetted in columbia and columbus that here that says that's why story up stick to it so i guess it was. I probably put on sale in atlanta and that little drugstore where it was sold for medicinal purposes supposedly and it went from there so let them both fight over. They both have monuments and statues to to the birth of coca cola. Long as we've got it in the right state. I guess that's another task for people that are following your book and trying to go on the coca cola trail maybe they can go to atlanta. They can go to columbus and decide for themselves who gets which piece of the pie. And i in turn will get to see a good amount of the state of georgia so that that's a good point. At least they're not too far from each other that you could do that. Comparison in columbus to while they're there. There's a lot of pemberton memorabilia. They're supposedly worked in his home. And there's a lot of coca cola industry in columbus georgia trip. And i i know i keep referencing. It's a theme that we talked about before. That's another one of the things i like about. The book is these are towns that people might not have on their bucket lists otherwise but there are a lot of historical items to appreciate in again especially with what we face this last year. It's a better time than any other time to realize. There's a lot of cool stuff in your backyard again. I'm in virginia. So there are certainly towns that get into the western side of the state that i need to put on my list and we were just in the smoky mountains for me the first time actually this past year as kind of stay and clearly there are some tennessee. Towns that are highlighted. plenty of tennessee. Towns that you can find out a lot more and what their history is one piece..

We're all going to be for a little while. I'm all about so larry. Thanks for taking the time to join me again today. Well we appreciate the opportunity to come back. Could you talk about travel.

Wh- i know when you and i connected before this book was already in the works. Did cove it and lockdowns mess with your timeline. Or anything like that. Too bad because By that point.

"This week's scholarship tip the coca cola. Scholars program is one of the more common scholarship programs. That high school seniors know about it is an achievement bay. Scholarship awarded to graduating high school. Seniors and students are recognized for their ability to serve and to lead It really focuses on student Contributions their commitment to their communities and their impacts In their school so this is for current high school seniors that includes homeschool students as well. who reside in the us and will be completing high school and that in this particular academic year and will be attending school in the fall. Now this is a scholarship. That's really desired by students. Because it does have an award amount of twenty thousand dollars and let me just talk with you. A little bit about What's inside of this scholarship and What you can do. Especially if you're in the ninth tenth and eleventh grade to really set yourself up well for this scholarship so there are Two maybe three rounds so too big rounds and then the final round so the big round and this scholarship Typically does have a deadline of october thirty first. So it's been that way for the last few years and will probably be that way in the future but what what students do when they Create an account. They will answer a bunch of questions so the first round there is no essay at all. It's just a questionnaire Students talk about school community activities. They're volunteering You know awards honors all all of that information. And here's how students advance to the next round the way this scholarship is Evaluated on the first round is purely quantitative so students who are highly involved highly. active Have won national scholarships or even regional scholarships tend to move on to the next phase of the application process So it's pretty much a computer that it's an algorithm that goes through and takes a look at it and will then decide whether or not you move onto the next wral if a student is selected to move onto the next round then they have a series of essays with a short responses and they are typically do that first week in january so They pick so many winners or so. Many semifinalists from each state and then The high school guidance counselors notified the students notified in a published that on their website. And that is a great accomplishment. If you've made it to the next round that's something to be proud of. But after that. In addition to the essays then students are also going to submit their high school transcripts information about their school school report recommendation letters and then financial information so they will include information from their student aid report and This now makes the next round a little bit more of a need based Focus so it starts off where it's purely merit in terms of the awards activities accomplishments involvement of the student but the next round then also does focus on essays grades but there is that need based component. So i still tell students. Go ahead and apply It's worth it.

"Asia students make major life decisions about where to go to college and what to do when they get there even without having spent time learning about themselves to make informed decisions in today's episode. I'm going to talk about how personality tests can be used in. The college admissions process and in our scholarship segment. I'm gonna talk about the coca cola scholars foundation scholarship welcome to the scholarship shark. Podcast i'm pam andrews. Your host as a college admissions consultant. I believe that getting into college does not need to be complicated or confusing and paying for it doesn't need to be costly and you're here because you believe the same. Join me each week. As i shared advice on the college admissions process as well as scholarship tips. So let's get started with today's episode. Welcome back to the scholarship shark podcast. I'm pam andrews your host and in today's episode. I'm gonna talk about personality in. The college admissions process really focusing on personality tests and in our scholarship segment. I'm gonna talk about the coca cola. Scholarship so now while it's great for you to showcase your grades standardized test scores and other accomplishments in your college admissions application. Colleges are not only concerned with stats. They wanna be able to get a feel for who you are and what your character is and whether or not you're a good fit for their university so in other words they wanna see your personality shine through your application and there are plenty of opportunities to do just that but before you start applying to college. You really have to start with discovering who you are what interests you and your personality type. You really should go through a process of self discovery now. There are many ways to do this. you can talk to others people who know you you trust their opinion. They can provide a very objective opinion. You can journal and capture your ideas and your thoughts down in a notebook. You can try new experiences things that challenge you but another way you can go through. This process of self-discovery is with a personality test and a personality test is an assessment designed to measure the characteristics patterns or traits that you exhibit across various situations. Now it's so toll that's used to help you out to help you gain a better understanding of yourself so that you can make decisions that are right for you now. There are many different types of personality tests. But i'm going to focus on a common one. Called the myers briggs. It's also called the myers briggs type indicator or the m b. ti. Now this is made up of sixteen different combinations of four letters with each of the possible letters representing a psychological preference so the letters represent one preference from each of the following four types. So number one. You're either an introvert or an extrovert number. Two you're either. Intuition are sensing number three. You're either thinking or feeling and number four you're either judging or perceiving and the way it works is that for a number one introvert or extrovert. It's where do you prefer to direct your focus. Are you more inward or outward number..

"On that? They don't even know about. I had I had to licenses. Through coca-cola which was not a problem they looked at it and said, yeah, you're harmless and they licensed it. You know. So in the front page of the book in the I, call the Gobbledygook page where all the legal stuff is it'll tell you the the the book has been licensed Michael. But I tried to throughout the book. Not to go to coca-cola archives for information. You know I I wanted information that. I wanted to try to the bottlers you know and. The few times that I went to the archives. It was just verify something that I've been told by somebody else. So it loaded with information that. They provided. Some of the information that is sold to Coca Cola archives. Wow, very cool stuff. So they're getting information from you. That's great stuff Are you familiar with with? The? Conspiracy Theory Club Mandela Effect Not Okay. basically but. The reason I'm asking you about it. It's basically the theory is that there is a glitch in the Matrix in where we live in a messed up of version of of reality and that a lot of things have changed from the world we knew before it's it's a ridiculous play the out there conspiracy theory. But part of the thing they talk about his logos change from we were complicated and they talk about the phone afford logo and they talk about the Oscar Mayer Wiener and have the name change and not spelled what it was but one of the things they talk about it the Coca Cola logo has it changed it changed. And the story is in my second book. Okay. A world famous international save us. He's now deceased wildlife artists for Minnesota Les Kouba. Les Kouba started out his. Career Painting Gogol on the sides of buildings at on trucks at whatever to make dollar. He's not true good at it that he could paint the Coca Cola logo upside down and backwards. But he he knew that logo at one point this is back in one thousand, nine, hundred, twenty s he went to. Georgia. To paint a coca-cola sign on a Ballpark, you know the ballpark background. and. The local bottler had brought him in and he tool bottler he said I can do it. He said, you know the WHO SOME HELP It needs a little more depth and eight just handsome ideas and the bomber said, we'll Glenn do it. He did it. He created just A. Slight change the Coca Cola logo. The bottler was so impressed. He's an Tiffany Georgia. He called Coca Cola corporate in. Atlanta he's got to come see this. Way said some of the marketing box up to tiffany. To look at what what Cola had done. They were so impressed with that. They came back two days later with a check and bought the rights. to His design of the Coca Cola logo. So yeah, has changed a little. we're, GONNA sell a lot of books. The conspiracy theorists people are now because I'm Gonna I'M GONNA share cut that clip outweighed talked about the logo changing because that's been a huge. People buy into all sorts of crazy ideas, these days, and so that one is out that it's called the Mandela effective if you ever have. To just waste on on meaningless lap. But there are a lot of people who believe in it and one of the things they point out is that Coca Cola's logo changed and I it must be something nefarious. It's like a glitch in a matrix when you just pointed out factually that it, there's a good reason behind the chains. And so Only if you had to really know what you're looking add. To see the difference, right? Right. Well, they do they. You know the Ford. Logo to the Ford logo has a little bit of a change in the to a little squiggly line and they like that and but I guess they don't bother checking with the companies because that information has to be pretty easy to find out that that. Yes indeed. We did change the logo slightly at some point and this had happened but they they don't bother to go that far I guess. What about the Ford logo the about three years ago when I got started on the book, the gentleman who is in charge of the archives in Atlanta. Went. About two years ago, he went to work as archivist and Ford. So it went from the Red Oval to Okay Very step and ironically when he went to work at coca-cola says This is a great place. And Great. American companies though Henry Ford, from what I tell this was a real jerk but to great American companies informed Coca Cola iconic companies of a what made America great right. Good good stuff. Larry's been a pleasure to get to know you. The book is called the coca-cola trail and the website is the Coca Cola trail dot com is that the only place it's available on your on that website or you have it available on Amazon and it's on Amazon and also You go into country whistle over eight thousand copies of this book. Wow. You go into a country store. You may see it sitting on the counter there. was asking you if coke is behind it because it would be good wherever they sold coke to kind of put that book out there and You know I think it would be good for them and good for you. Now that that's an effort we've tried and haven't gotten over, we're going to try and. The MOM and pop stores whether we have it. I would think if you had it on display in a little store where they have those bottles that I get the old fashioned bottles and had the book right next to it, I would pick up the book with a six pack. And there's places. Gives good good example there's a place in Oklahoma? And say, they have a very large soda bottle outside the as a fifties restaurants.

"Think not. Long. They did bring it back sort of as a memory thing in a very limited amount and who knows it was sold or whatever but it was. It was a promotion didn't last long. So. I. Don't know a there. You got into this part of it, but cocaine within an IT originally at some point, right when it will. Vest verify started there was cocaine or trace amounts of cocaine and. That's a slightly exaggerated version of what happened but you know the competition likes spread that the Coca Cola formula is made from the Kola nut. and the coca. Leaf. Leaf is in fact processed. To get the flavor out of it, but it is not highly processed as they do to make cocaine. And now, because of that in the early, very early stages of Coca Cola there was that sleight. Of Hint whatever you WANNA call it of cocaine which came from the coca leaf being processed the way it was it got to be such a hassle. The owner of Coca Cola as candler. Who knows how much money our chemists and research people want to make sure there was no trace of that ever ever again because it was starting to get some bad rap and it wasn't really cocaine it was an ingredient for McAleese Won't insure. gave him a lot of grief for awhile. Wow and so when when did they actually start marketing it like where you can buy it and six packs and all that kind of stuff was that wasn't right away right I guess you would buy a single bottle at at one point and then some somewhere along the line somebody said we. Do this six packs in cases and that kind of stuff always that immediate. Well almost immediate, not quite but Chattanooga were these two lawyers would back that became the first licensed approved bottler for Coca Cola, and to this day the operation there is one of the biggest N Coca-cola and they started fairly soon looking at other ways the market one of them. In Chattanooga, there's a company that was successful for many many years making the old wooden cartons member, the the one Ray, and ironically there was also in Chattanooga, a company that made the bottles and the license from Indiana to make the bottles will the salesman from the from the Carton. Company. Wouldn't carton company and the salesman from the bottle company. They take off other road together and they'd go visit bottlers around the country and they would sell them coca cola bottles. Well, they have to come in a case. To sail. So it was pretty pretty quick that they got into ways of multiple marketing in the wooden cases I one and that came fairly soon. And a bottle pretty much stayed the same bright for for the first fifty, sixty years whatever it was. lutely. Bottles got a light green color to it. Yeah. Why Because when the company Indiana. The Root Glass Company, when they made the bottle, they had A. A sand. Quarry about fifty miles away. In a town called Greencastle, which has nothing to do with the color, but it's ironic the town is greencastle. So they brought the sand by rail to Tara hold and made the bottle while as it turned out, there was copper and other minerals in that sand that created the green color. Global Coal I did so much at first they called a German green and they said, no, that's not a good idea. Then they called a Georgia greed but consequently after that, any glassmaker that made a coca cola bottle. If there are sand did not contain the minerals they were required to get them and make sure that they made green bottles to. Wow interesting stuff that said that copper in the bottle affect the taste at all. No. No it was the the comper was you know in the sand and the sand is they make glass they built the sand and it had no no affect on the taste of the product and all but it it certainly added in a fake. Incurs old. It strikes me as my one of my memories is my brother and I arguing about bottles versus cans and it does infect the taste and does it taste different in a bottle and the candidate? We I think we had that argument several times When did they start canning it? Actually. They started canning it. About in the eighties nineteen eighties as well. They really got into it because we become a throwaway society. And coca-cola actually sent out a memo to their bottlers about ten fifteen before that in the sixties that said canning is coming get ready for it. Okay. Because we have become a throwaway society of people didn't WANNA take bottles back to the store and. Consequently, the bottle manufacturers came up with the throwaway bottle. Well, you say, well, what what's the difference? There's a big difference in the construction of it made. Okay but yeah. So in any case they. They a lot of to change over to canning. For a lot of these small bottlers that was an expensive proposition and many of them would get together and form a Canon cooperatives where what they were known a canning plant that would can coca-cola for all and then it would go the different bottlers, some somebody's and Zach. Are Independent bothers to this day. Aren't some Phil can as well as vital in their their companies but most of them have gone to the Cooper project. So. I never have lots of different kinds of bottles out but there is a place near me where I can get like what looks like the classic bottle but somebody told me the Mickens in Mexico are they still making him in the US? Not to my knowledge, they're not making him in the US, but they are selling still selling a lot of because it's an astounding. ironically, the last bottler to actually bottle the six and a half ounce Coca Cola. was about three years ago in one own Minnesota. And he bottled the six and a half obser- for the last time, and he actually had to go to sources to get another bottles to new the bond leg I think they ran like two thousand and some bottles. became sort of collectors thing. In fact, A bottler from Saint, Cloud Minnesota bought the last one for two thousand dollars and the other ones all sold for ten dollars each and the money would to improve the trail system in will not Minnesota. So there's no money that I'm aware of in the United States bobbling.

"Exciting whether adventure Manetti Al So. There's to newseum. Private museums. For coca-cola, certainly nearby and would be a great travel feature. So I went to the first one in Vicksburg did little information on them. Then I went to the next one, which is in Monroe Louisiana and as I got talking to the people at that museum and the family is History Coca Cola history. I realized there is so much more to this than just a little feature. There's a book it's all over the place and that inspired me to go after it and to create the book and and there are so many interesting places to visit that are coca-cola history. We're not talking about Atlanta everybody written about it Atlanta Ghetto we're talking about, for example, Vicksburg Mississippi. were. Coca Cola I modeled bottled in VICKSBURG MISSISSIPPI NOT IN ATLANTA. It was bottled there by a gentleman that had a a sort of phone and an ice cream store and a candy store, and he was selling Coca, Cola? Fountain drinks he was also the distributor for the Coca Cola Syrup so he'd get it for his store and Sell it to other stores to make Fountain Cokes Yanni thought this was eighteen, ninety five. And he's not. You know it's a long walk into Vicksburg from wherever you are. If we put this stuff in bottles, we bring it to you and that's how it started. He actually was bottling for five years before coca-cola said Yeah it's okay to bottle. You just. Did it you know and? The family at the beaten orange they became anyone who follows coca-cola role know that the beaten of the pioneer coca-cola families, bottling families, and they're still bottling today and. It's just typical of what's in the book. It's all kinds of places where you could go and see coca-cola history and wire looking at it. We're going to tell you what you're looking at. Right. It's an American phenomenon, but now it since eighteen ninety-five, it's grown into a worldwide phenomenon. I mean you can't go anywhere in the world with the brand. coca-cola is not known, right? It is the world's best known brand. Best. It is also the world's best collected brand people coca cola, Idol Care coca-cola whatever got Coca Cola on it in collectible. There's an organization of coca-cola collectors several thousand of them they made and have rallies and trade. events where they swamp and they have an annual convention is a big deal and these people are into Coca Cola, collectible. But you know it was and I think what we try to say what the book. It was those little Coca Cola bottlers who thought. This might be worse something and they started bottling it and they're the ones really that created the Coca Cola Empire as we know it today, it's little guys who took a chance opera. For new, Orleans, you know said, we're going to try it. You know. Coca Cola. Bottling was a good idea. Yeah. I was just going to ask you about that. was that something that the the corporation the company supported or were these guys in working independently and coming up with their own bottling techniques, him a bottle styles and all that kind of stuff. It's A. Story again on unsuccess-. Two young lawyers from Chattanooga. Fought you know if we could get the rights to bottle Coca Cola we could probably make some money. Her make a trip to Atlanta and they meet with the gentleman as candler who was making the Coca Cola Syrup. And they said to him Mr Candler. We want exclusive rights to bottle. Coca Cola in the United States and he said that's a pretty dumb idea. Is Arnold Arnold that idea It took them to wings to Jim to at least look the idea. So he said, all right go back drama contract. Let me take a look at it which they did. He looked at it and he said I don't think this is makes any central. He said I'm worried about the quality of the product being maintained bottling. He said it's a quote a dumb idea, and if it doesn't work dot com calling back to me with it and he charged them one dollar for the home or the exclusive rights to bottle Coca Cola and every place. But Mississippi because that's where joe was already doing gay. So they go back to Chattanooga. You Know Matt you know the story about the the dog chasing the car what do you do with it when you can't you? We these guys were the same way. They go back to Chattanooga the got the rights to bottle Coca Cola over the united. States, and between the two of them have got fifteen hundred dollars you know. So like what are we going to? So what they did after setting up their own little bottling plant and realizing that wasn't going to make. They said, wait a minute. We've got the rights and they started selling territories. You WanNa bottle, Coca Cola, and Paducah. Great. A fifty mile radius for X. amount of money and you could follow Coca Cola. However, you must use the Coca Cola, Syrup, which comes from Atlanta and when you get the syrup. We being the ones who sold you the rights also got a commission on every gallon of Syrup that you buy. So they sold have been cut. You know kept their fingers in the pie to speak and it was that initial franchising what it was that created the coca-cola. Empire, people said, let's try it and it wasn't easy you. There were a lot of obstacles and coca-cola were so different that People were afraid to try it just there's a lot of stories in the book as to how the bottlers convince the customer to try the drink. Well Yeah. Let's talk about that. So it wasn't really a marketed to kids as it started out. Right? It was an adult drank. Right and you know it through meridia originally developed the syrup was developed by Pemberton. Who thought he had a civil war injury and he was looking for some worries some way to get relief. So it was developed from medicinal purposes as they say well. You know one of the ways unique ways is like that a bodmer out in Santa. Fe. decided to do it. He bottled his first case coca-cola took it to his local grocery store the man there was his friend and he said, I'll leave you the case and I'll be back in a week to pick up my money. Well he came back at a week and the case,.

"Worldly, fellow Fred Weintraub who is sitting in studio with me as well. Joining us now on the phone, author of the book, entitled the Coca Cola trail is Larry Jorgensen. Thank you Larry for for your time tonight. I know it's the middle of the night. All right. Thank you. Glad to be here. We are. We are big fans of Coca Cola around the studio. There are lots of them around here. But what what possessed you, I know this this product has been around for literally more than one hundred years what possessed you to write a book about it. Well, we have two very interesting places in Coca Cola history nearby, and I started out by investigating those. And I realized there was much more to this than just those places. My book is called people and places in the history of Coca Cola, and we go all the way back to eighteen ninety four was some unique stories and primarily what we try to do. The book is not only the history, but places where the reader can still go and see some of this history. You know, whether it's a Coca Cola bland us. Now something else or a Coca Cola museum or or whatever. Did it does have a very storied history. I remember growing up, and my mom would say that my her aunt. So my great aunt had been addicted to it because of cocaine, and I was like what that's just crazy mom is that factor fix it. That's primarily should. But I do know a lot of people that are addicted to it because it's a it's a fabulous beverage. But the that comes from the fact that the original formula for the syrup use coca leaves, which ultimately if you wanna do like the boys. Do. Yeah. You could make but cocoa leaves? No. So the formula had coca leaves added had the coal. That's. Gradients in the original Coca Cola formula. All right. The other thing that I have to check with you. Because nobody remember Fred Fred Weintraub who sitting in studio with me tonight as well. He claims to remember this. But I think he's just being nice when I was little my grandmother who was a nurse used to if I had a upset stomach like every little kid gets all the time. She would go out here have some coke syrup, and she would go to this medicine bottle that she'd gotten at the pharmacy, and it was what I believe was the syrup from Coca Cola. Do you remember this? I I am not had crystal memory of that. And I think today it would be extremely difficult to buy. Although you can if you go on read, you could find it. The Coca Cola syrup. That is used in the bottling of Coca Cola. I purchased some one time it comes in a very large bag, and we had it made into. Coca-cola jelly for Christmas. But normally it would not be available. I say at a pharmacy. Whether it was in those days who knows that's, but I know there are people that do count on Coca Cola. Because gradients and the carbonation. Give them some relief from stomach problems or you could have a coup believer. Absolutely. It just in part of that. Phase that sells your stomach when you've got a problem when you don't feel well. Well, I think it's psychosomatic because I remember having my grandma gift syrup whatever is tiny. So I'm like, oh that always makes me feel better so leery, would you would you consider yourself a coke a Coca-Cola connoisseur? I'm afraid not. I'm an old news dog who got interested in this story and decided to make a book out of it. I know a lot of Coca Cola concerts said I'd met some wonderful Coca Cola people in doing the book. But unfortunately, I am not a connoisseur of Coca Cola. I like it. It's good beverage. It's not a mustard on my list. So as you were writing the book, what were the what were the couple of things that absolutely shocked you business mistakes. They Coca-Cola made sold something for a dollar that they should have sold for a million dollars. Right, right. That's to me. Fascinating story. Well, you know, Coca Cola was first bottled the very first time in eighteen ninety four in Vicksburg, Mississippi was a gentleman by the name of Joe Biden iron who was had a a Felton soda fountain. And was getting the syrup for his salt. And he was also a distributor of the syrup and out of frustration. Not being able to get the beverage to people in the country. He decided he would try to bottle it. He did. And Coca-Cola said. Yeah, that's what I was. So what you know, you're right on the dollar. It was five years ago. Five years later, the attorneys Chattanooga. Ben Thomas ago, white held one to Atlanta and convince the owner of Coca Cola syrup that time was Acer candler. They wanted to bottle Coca Cola, and he said to them. This is ridiculous. He said he does. And so I saw syrup and they wore down to the point where he signed over the rights to bottle Coca Cola in the United States every place, but Mississippi for a dollar, and he never collected the dollar. So Mr Thomas. Mr Whitehead, go back to Chattanooga. And it's what are we gonna do? Now. Maybe maybe they needed to go take an MBA class. They probably didn't make the right business decision. But as you look globally in as you did all this research is kind of interesting to just realize how much Coca Cola whether you're a fan of the drink and not a fan of the drink. How it so in bedded threaded in our entire society from the jingles Coca-Cola's come I'd like to. Teach the world to see there's not a single person who who doesn't know that. And whether you're at a grocery store in London or Yugoslavia, or Singapore, you go down the beverage. I l and you see that the way you see that logo. You see that logo? And in many ways that logo that drink that branding. It really does bring us all together. Does it has special memories for a lot of people and the book, I'm very fortunate that I take those memories have come out in in people that have wanted to read the book, there's thirty chapters about all sorts of interesting things, I know GM gets down into Indiana. And you've got this story of the bottle starting in Indiana wires, the bottle green the we we have that out of greencastle, Indiana, and so forth that made it just Coca Cola history is all over the country and the book is a tribute to those independent bottlers at really they're the ones that made Coca Cola wasn't Atlanta. It was all about others. Who said, yeah, I'd best fifty two hundred dollars in this project, and I have a fifty mile territory, I'm gonna make Coca Cola. It is fascinating. How is such a simple decision by by one man just to help his his? His his people out in the country get to enjoy the same beverage. Those in town were drinking has really changed so much of our culture because I can't imagine people walk down the street. We have the cans we have the bottles really, really interesting.
