"It should be an equal price and we can see you know who did it and there's a certain rules about you know equal price, etc. then you let facebook Gobble up eleven election advertising that area the attention economy. Without any regulation and suddenly it's an auction and suddenly it's like wait who decided that why are they the government of how now two billion right elections In Moreover, even if they have good intentions or they hire ethicists, it'd be like, do you want coca-cola governing? The Public Square but then they hire some emphasis to be better. It's like no don't want coca-cola. Part is that they become the defacto public squares without being public their private, exactly that private public squares, and then they get to hide behind First Amendment. Like. You're not public, right? You're not a government. This is where the metaphor of urban planning. So important because it shows that they are environments, we inhabit their environments, they're not products. This is the thing we're trying to say years ago was people say, Oh, it's just a tool. It's just as neutral thing I can use it to post to my friends. It's like no when you're creating the habitat, that two billion people live, we spent about a fourth of our days of our lives now in artificial social systems, meaning these digital environments and that's just onscreen offscreen. You're still thinking thoughts came from that artificial social environment. So, we have to govern them as public spaces they they're taking over. Or they have to be governed exactly and this is a challenge and there's no just to be clear. It's not like there's easy answers of well, it's easy just to do x Y and Z I mean there's different governments. Attaran governments developing countries in different languages, and we've never had a problem like this before. But that's the conversation we need to have is how do we govern? Authoritarians love social media they don't WanNa shut them down democracies WANNA. Shut down which is kind of. It's a fascinating. Listening to my may two thousand, nineteen interview with Tristan. Harris, we're GONNA take another break now and we'll be back after this. So let's talk about what you need. What we need to do because like you talked about everything has been so disparate whether it's technology addiction or or or political unrest or hate speech they don't get linked together. Right linking them together as critical. I just read an essay talking about that they were all linked together. It's not one problem. And they all inform each other. And they're all part of self reinforcing feedback loops much like climate change carbon has the self reinforcing feedback loop with methane oceans, etc. So similarly in the attention economy is it easier to say short brief somebody things or long complex nuanced things short somebody thinks when you say short things what tends to work better is outrage gets seventeen percent higher retreat weights so that if outraged gets more often than we polarize people more often pull more polarization means more more isolated living in our own chambers when we're more more vulnerable to conspiracy theory and thinking, and so these things yourself. So we need a name for this connected system we just use this phrase human downgrading because it it gets at the heart, which is that while our. Our data and are are. Are used upgrade the machines to build better and better models of us. It's. It's downgrading mental health children need to transmit. The immediate term I would needs to be obviously the realization is happening I think there's tech lashes here and going strong. What has to happen on the tech clutch thing I I would like to see us get calmer and more nuanced about let's just let us solve the problem I mean there's clearly as you said, there's a lot of rain frustration about the past I agree with a lot of that these issues were not hidden. It was not impossible to foresee some of these consequences but now. We are, we are and we have to talk about we can fix it. So the thing that we're most trying to say is we have to have a common language and framework for addressing these problems. So human downgrading we said comes from three things. One is undergoing or artificial social environment. So that's what I mean by we're we're like contorted ourselves to fit right into this. Product, as opposed to the product, wanting to fit around our friendships fit around our society, our public square civility it should be asking, how do I fit and strengthen those things not how do I d. base them and replace it with my synthetic version? That's the first diagnosis. The second one is from these overpowering is where they have a Voodoo doll avatar version of each of us. That's more powerful. They can use that to manipulate us by the way that's will. Smith movie about to come out. Gemini. Man. But go ahead. Oh. They build a clone of himself, and then he goes back try to they're both assassins and so he can't kill himself because he knows all his moves anyway. Interesting. I'm very excited to see this this. This gets really dangerous when you realize that again, everyone is looking out. This is a big point made at the beginning of our new agenda last week and it's big presentation we think of it as like the inconvenient truth for Tech and the point we made his up until now the biggest sort of milestone point that people talk about in the future of tech is one, is it get better than human intelligence? When is it get better than humans? Often right. Yeah exactly. So when when are they you know taking our jobs because there can do everything we can do better than us, but there's a much earlier point. Imagine there's that timeline. Here's the graph of technological progress going up up up up and there's an earlier point before it crosses human strengths all it has to do is cross human weaknesses and from that it's like. A magician if you're a PhD as a magician, I don't care I. Don't know that I just need to know your weaknesses, not your strengths right and when technology exploits our weaknesses, it gains control. So the point of the second diagnosis of going from these overpowering a is Avatar Voodoo dolls of each of us those have to be a fiduciary our interests because that's dangerous kind of symmetric power. Model for this, every other form of asymmetric power lawyers who you hand all of your personal information over to so they can best represent you right doctors..
Obituary: Herman Cain
"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats

Is the textbooks to yeah so and you know what the truth is maybe we're in your to it because we've all known this has been going on all along. These are not news reasons news people were so freaked out but everyone of these stories that come out before just seeing the receipts that was so damning we knew we're just now seeing this smoking gun emails, but we knew this was happening so i. I understand everybody's reluctance to get government to weigh in on these things. But at the same time I, think there is a there is a place for it and there is a history of this being beneficial. I don't know if you can use the at and T. Case I don't know if you use the US, their case they're flying. Railroad people are saying the railroads because railroads it made sense for the person who was selling Coca Cola on the the train at the station. That eventually, the train would sell Coca Cola on the train, but they got into every business over everything until they until these laws came up. So it's very interesting, but it's going to be a year at least a half a year before we see any outcome of this I actually. I was prepared for the worst having seen the Mark Zuckerberg Senate testimony. I was prepared for the worst. It wasn't quite as bad as I thought, it would be these guys have been and gals have been working on this for a long time. Yeah. There with a Jim Jordan's and the Jim Sensenbrenner is that were the you know sensenbrenner accused Mark Zuckerberg of taking down Donald trump junior's Kovic posted and mark said, well, actually that was twitter but. So there was that that happened but there, but I was actually impressed by the depth of knowledge I think this? or The people who made the cockamamie conspiracy theories for the first three rounds and then asked questions the last round which meant they could have asked questions. And that was just an act. But that's the other thing with these televised hearings. There's a lot of grandstanding you. We've come to expect that this is just the way the sausage gets made in the United States. I think it would actually I thought it was better than I thought it was gonNA be, but we'll wait and see what the upshot of it is. It's tough. It's tough thing to do. Yeah. Watched, all.

And at one point. an astronaut reading out an error message on his mini. he said. Time line application on my APP. A tablet gives me an era says. See. If you've ever heard this one safari cannot open the page. And then it's got an html address because your ipad is not connected to the Internet. coach. Can you confirm the Wi fi is often the airplane Mona's is on asks. Basics, command. And then the the astronaut. this is my favorite part. Let's see. It's Bob Bob it was doug and Bob. The McKenzie Brothers were up there. No, it was Bob Benkin the astronaut says Yeah. The WIFI is often the airplane mode is on if you have display cameras up, I'll try to show it to you. So they try to show it to the cameras. when you're coming up on the ground station, we have this play. camp. Dragon. Space X. can you bring that a little closer? got a good image of that WE'RE GONNA get back to you just to be clear. Is this just happening on your tablet Bob not on Doug yet just online. eventually. This. Bob used airdrop. To fix it. SPACEX command requested that Doug. Tame screen shots of his day line is back case his APP experienced the same caching issue. Then each astronaut was instructed to briefly turn on Wifi to enable, airdrop. So they could wirelessly share the screen sites between IPADS. Apparently. They're storing the mission critical documentation in Adobe Acrobat. Somebody's gotta use it. For. Them. I. Mean. Come on. Yeah. Starlink would have been helpful. So, that's that was. The. Year they announced airdrop of friend of Mine Martin It's safe solvent. We were flying back and WBZ was our camera percent wbz and we were on a plane but opposite sides of it and we needed to get some work done and we figured out we try it. We didn't think it would work because we were in the air but we didn't realize it's just Wifi Bluetooth, and we were close enough that we were sending stuff back in forth that. It was it was workflow changing I. Just glad to know airdrop works even in the crew dragon. Talking about made it back. They're safe. They're healthy and it sure was fun to watch. Airdrop. Work.

So I'm really curious to know what your response is going to be to this game. We have men peasant, but the one thing that a lot of people don't know about me is I actually have a blue belt in taekwondo. I actually wish that I had no before because you know sometimes i. Go a little overboard on my teasing and I'm kind of picturing the time. War where I was kind of making fun of a little bit like you could have kicked. My Butt. Yeah just watch out John. Luckily, we are now half a world away from each other. So even a blue belt, I'm feeling a little safe, but that is something I did not know about you. But yes, fire nation Hollywood part of an incredible mastermind, the kate knife through about six months ago it was awesome to welcome her and some other amazing entrepreneurs to the lovely island of Puerto Rico and specifically Palmist Mar I got to learn A. Lot about what she has going on, and that's why I'm fired up fire nation for you to hear from. Holly today. We're GONNA talk about how to hit six figures with a list of six hundred and tell you right now holly somebody who does more with what she has almost anybody I know and I love that about her. So Holly, let's break this down a little bit. You've had an unconventional start in entrepreneurship. Breakdown for fire nation how did you first begin your Biz Show? The reality is I didn't actually set out to start my business in the beginning it just became the only way I could actually do I want it. So my business background is as a marketing and brand strategist I walked almost a decade for leading fortune five hundred companies in the fast moving consumer goods industry, which basically just means multimillion billion dollar global brands such as Gillette pantene shampoo bus perfume, and one of your favorites, Jon Benet, Jerry's ice cream. So, that was kind of my weld and I always in my most recent role, there is leading a two hundred million dollar brand portfolio whereas basically just tossed with how do I grow this brand in that market? How do I execute on amazing media campaigns get to know my consumers so that was that was the world I knew and on paper I was successful I got the absolute dream role that I could possibly have wanted ahead a view of the mountains in Switzerland bring out of his window. And then Ireland never forget this. Awful moment when I was having dinner with friends of a pizza unwind and I had this mind numbing thought that I guess I'll just be happy when I'm retired. Like Oh, I'm in my mid twenties that's quite a long way. Years. Away. That's like twice as long as you've been alive. Exactly. Exactly. So that was kind of like something for me to finally attention to and the reality was I've been really bent out for quite a period of time I'd got caught up in. Comparison Trabzon. Myself in fast-moving corporate space and I was massive perfectionist which did not help so I kind of went through that somewhat obligatory quarter life crisis that we all seem to experience today's in there. And that really ignited. I kind of Ray into Paseo development I'd never been exposed to anything to pass on development up until that moment when I realized I need a way to calm the flip down and so my first thing was I'm going to go to a meditation colas and then I became an P. Practitioner and then I certified as courage and it just kind of my obsession grew as I implemented all the things I was learning that will having literally life changing impact on me. So when I moved from London to Sydney a few. Years later I was like I want to do more of this because it's so amazing I'm going to try and get a job in eight Shaw Orlando Development and it's going to be amazing. I have these qualifications. I'm so passionate enthusiastic and bear in mind I just moved to the other side of the world with zero networks. No one knew my name and I'm going to recruitment agents saying, Hey, this is what I can do like yet. That's not going to happen because you'll see visas marketing and everyone gave crap that I. Wanted to ECHINACEA it was really soul destroying and I was just banging my head against a brick wall time and time and time again, and then I recognize that honestly the only way could explore this New Passion for coaching and personal. Development and see how I could support people in similar quarter live crises was to start my own business. So I the very unconventional step of actually negotiating a pot time senior marketing role in which five hundred company that gave me one precious day to just my Tories in the water. Of, what could be if I took this further over time? I was then to grow my business I negotiated two days a week on that with three days in my corporate role, and then I went on maternity leave to have my daughter and today I'm three days a week in my business around her. So it was a very a out of the way to do it, and as probably not the same story that a lot of other people have. But since that moment I've had people ask me how did he do that? And so that was what started everything off and today I. Am so grateful and so blessed I didn't just. You know accept that Acadia get nine to five just put his dreams draw. We'll come back to Atlanta but I, really followed that banning fi and my belly and I found a way to make it happen because today I have all the flexibility I could possibly want around my daughter while doing the work

McDonald's customers changed their behavior during pandemic, but some trends could endure
"Of McDonald's down a little bit today. Despite the fact, same store sales in the second quarter only down two point three percent. That's better than what we have been seeing from a lot of big restaurant companies out there. And Jason similar to the comments that we got from Coca Cola's CEO. Chris Kempinski saying he thinks this quarter represents bottom for McDonald's. Do you think he's right? Yeah. That's a it's an interesting perspective to hear from him, and actually think in McDonald's case could be right. I mean I think. When you look at this quarter when you look at. These? Numbers look pretty darn good. All things considered I. Mean I think that what we're going to see. As as discerning season rolls out, it's it's going to be the expenses that really separate the kids from the grownups here eventually, they're going to be companies that can deal with the with the ramp up in costs due to the pandemic. Way better than others. The McDonald's is one that is going to be able to deal that I think pretty pretty pretty good fashion, I mean it's obviously a huge concept. I mean being franchise means. You've got a lot of partners out there with a lot of expertise in their particular geographies. I don't think you can dismiss that I don't think you can discount that interviews remember not all that long ago. starbucks actually pivoted in their strategy. Going away from company owned stores in foreign markets to back to licensed stores. Because they wanted to rely on that expertise that boots on the ground. Expertise that locals have in McDonald's has that, too, so I mean I think that. This is a company that's going to always benefit from this move towards. Contactless drive-thrus. Always a part of the concept for the most part, and then they've certainly noted that. I think it's very. Interesting to note how dependent they are in some markets, though on their dining room segment, and if you look at their international operated market segment, which is a a large piece of the business pre Kovic, nearly seventy percent of customer orders were in restaurant across those larger markets when they close those dining rooms. Even for a limited time. It makes a big deal. It makes a big. Big Impact on on their financials even though they have the drive through to fall back on, so it's not all sunshine and lollipops, but given the situation. This is a restaurant company that's going to be able to deal a lot better than most well. You talked about the expenses, and that was one of the things Kim Ski was talking about on the call just sort of. In particularly their marketing how they have pulled back on the marketing, spend rightly so, but he was talking about it almost in the same way that Warren Buffet talks about his elephant gun. Like Hey, we've. We've cut back on marketing over the past four months or so. We think as our operations rebound in the second half of this year. We're going to be able to ramp up our marketing to a degree that we have in for a while. I'm assuming at least part of that would be aimed at first because. That was one of the things I was reminded of with. This report is. McDonald's, needs breakfast to be successful. They do you're right and I'm glad you mentioned breakfast because that's that's where I was going to go with this as well. They make Donald's. They don't need to mark it as much as others. Maybe I mean. It's obviously very well known brand already. With large presence at their, in despite the fact that they have recovered a lot of lost sales, like in other words, the the the the fall off in June, for example they've recovered essentially ninety percent of their two thousand nineteen tales from junior. The things are looking a lot better than they were just a few months ago, but that is the one sore point. I think for them. His breakfast in. It's not just. People aren't eating breakfast for dinner or lunch as much anymore. It's this idea that a lot of just aren't commuting anymore and so they're not selling breakfast for breakfast. And that that is a bit of a problem because McDonald's. You know I'm not the biggest. McDonald's in the world, but if if I had to go for for one meal I think it would probably be breakfast, they do it pretty well. And they're just that. That's fallen off a cliff, and that's not gonNA. Come back as quickly even though they had that lever to pull in serving breakfast brilliant essentially as long as they want. But, you know what that's. It I mean I it'll be. It'll be a slow recovery. It's it's. I don't want to say it's going to be a lost year, but it's GonNa, be, there's there's going to be a lot of growth that is lost this year, but but again I think McDonald's a company, and in a very admirable position they will be able to play offense while a lot of other companies were playing defense in that ultimately I think a workout well in their favor.
July Mailbag with Jason Moser
"The. Multiple answers I'm out Southwick and I'm joined, is always by broke camp. Personal Finance expert here at the Motley Fool. Hey, BRO, well! Hello Alison. It's the July mailbag where we answer your questions and this month it's with the help of multiple analyst Jason Moser. Should you buy a house now? What is modern portfolio theory and also here Jason's thoughts on a lot of stocks all that and more on this week's episode of Molly fully answers. Jason thanks coming back. you know I mean i. told you you invite me. I'M GONNA. Be here every single time. Thanks for having me back. I mean we appreciate it because we know you're a busy man, and so we do appreciate that you carve out time for us in our little show, don't. Always always make time for those important people in my life rule number one make time for allison and Bro I love. It sounds like a good one to me. Everybody wins. All right well, I guess we should just get into it, so the first question comes from Darren I've subscribed to the full for over a year and I'm really pleased with the service. I would like to know your thoughts about my holdings in Shop Affi- I've bought several times over the last three years, and it's now over thirty five percent of my portfolio and I. Don't know if I should continue holding or trimmed down. What would you advise a good problem to have I was gonna say that exact same thing? That's a good problem have? In a very glad, you have subscribed to our services in your really pleased. That's that's what we aim to to do. We aim to please help you make money and so yeah. This is one of those situations that we will find ourselves in from time to time as investors. A nice problem to have but something you do need to address at some point because it is going to be a little bit different for everybody. In so coming from the perspective of I, also own shop, a Fi stock in it's it's a wonderful investment. It certainly is taking up a bigger. Part of my portfolio a not at thirty five percent where you are. I think for me. It really does boil down to. That sleeping at night test in other words, you need to be able to go to sleep at night without worrying about this kind of stuff, and if you feel like shop, a Fi represents too much. Of your portfolio if you feel like you're overly allocated their, then, you may need to consider pulling it back a little, but now I mean it's. It's I think it's always important. Note you know. It's a big difference between building up a position buying a position to make this size to make this type of allocation in your portfolio. It's another thing entirely to have position grow into beat into becoming that size i. mean that that is that is in a little bit of a different dynamic there, so people all the different ways, some sometimes folks will, they will just sort of looking at it from the house money, concept or you. You just sell enough shares to recoup your initial investment, and then you let the rest of it go. Some people are perfectly fine with thirty five percent. Some people are not. They want a pair back so i. do think you need to kind of figure out what helps you sleep at night I do think that shop by a great business. I think the biggest risk in only shop, if I right now is valuation, just because it's dominating, it's space, but it's not making any money yet, and it's probably going to be a little while until they do so that valuation risk is there, but ultimately yeah I think determine. Where you feel most comfortable with it, and if you feel like you need to put a little bit of that money off the table, and he thirty five percents a lot, certainly very understandable. If they've said something you need to do if you do decide to pair it back a little bit. You've made multiple purchases, so you can identify the shares to sell to manage the tax consequence if this isn't a brokerage account and not an IRA. All right next question comes from Steven. If you are forced into unemployment, you are paying federal income taxes on unemployment payments are not contributing to social security nor to Medicare. How does this affect your future calculation of social security benefits and can one contribute to the social security fund during unemployment to mitigate any adverse effects on benefits, it is a little bit adding insult to injury, but you do owe federal income taxes on your unemployment benefits, and if your state charges has a state income tax, you probably have to pay state tax on that, although there are a handful of states that exempt unemployment benefits, so that's good news. And by the way you, you could have taxes withheld from your unemployment benefits you file. This form called form w four V. if you want, they withhold ten percent, or you can do quarterly estimated payments if you wanNA avoid that big tax bill at the end of the year, but if you're strapped for cash is probably just better to get the money now worried about your taxes later Eh. Stephen notes out. You do not pay payroll taxes. Those are the things that go into social security and Medicare so. So. It could result in a lower social security benefit, however, keep in mind that social security is based on your thirty five highest earning years, so if you enter the workforce at say twenty two and you work until you're mid to late sixties. That's more than forty years where the working so hopefully. If you miss out, if this year is not so good somewhere among those other forty, five or so years, you've had thirty five really good year so that this year won't be that big of a deal. So it probably will be okay. And then to address the last question. Unfortunately, no, you cannot make voluntary contributions to social security. There is at least one academic working paper out there. That suggested that people could buy into social security by like extra credits as opposed to contributing to your 401k, but so far that has not been passed by Congress I had an ex. Question comes from Sam. I heard to stocks discussed on another full podcast. When I read articles about them, it mentions they are thinly traded. I have two questions one I'm sure my position would still be quite small so I think I'd still be able to get in and out, but are there other things I should think about when it's a thinly traded stock and question number two. Is there a certain amount of? Daily volume you like to look for when considering a stock foreign investment. What volume do you want to see to not be? Quote thinly traded stock. Yes very good question in thinly traded stock just refers to the either the amount of shares or the dollar volume of shares that would trade on any given. Market Day and so. The. Thinly traded stock. The the problem is that you may not necessarily able to buy and or sell at the prices. You necessarily think you might be able to in other words when you look at a stock's price and you're looking through the. What what's going on throughout the day on the market, you'll see that did ask spread, which is essentially the bid. Ask spread is it's what someone's willing to pay for the stock versus what someone is asking to be paid for the stock? Because you know you have a buyer and a seller on on in every transaction they're. Normally most cases, these business business bread is very tiny, the couple of pennies maybe for most stocks because they're. They're heavily traded right there. There are plenty of dollar volume. But there are a lot of smaller companies small caps in particular in in you know a micro cap, specifically that don't necessarily meet these kinds of thresholds, and so you definitely have to be aware of that now I'll go back in time just a little bit, too. When we were running the service here at the fool called million dollar portfolios Roman Romani portfolio that we help manage members, and it was never really a problem, but we did have a condition in there. We were always looking for at least ten million dollars in average. Trading volume total daily volume now understand I'm not saying the number of shares saying the amount of money so basically shares times price, but we're always looking for at least ten million dollars. That wasn't set in stone it. It was an idea for us. It wasn't ever really a problem because we had a very diversified portfolio with a number of different types of companies, but when you're looking for smaller companies, you would've just keep that in mind that did ask. Spread is is something that just because it says the stock is twenty dollars. That doesn't necessarily mean you'll pay twenty dollars if there is a a big spread there between the bid, and the ask in so I think whenever you're considering stocks that have any lighter trading volume or thinly traded stock. Just be sure to use limit orders. Limit Orders of let us stipulate the price that you are willing to pay for or that you're willing to. To accept a if you're selling a limit, order is just a really good way to protect yourself from any unwanted surprise thinly traded stocks. You might not always necessarily get them when you want them, so you might have to lead that limited are in there for a little while, but but a limit order is a great way to protect you from any unwanted surprises. Next question comes from Randall. I'm in my late thirties now, but earlier in my life. I was very very bad with my money. Collection Calls Welfare and bankruptcy or not strangers to me. I've been at the bottom then I met the love of my life, and she convinced me to turn things around ten, and a half years later and I have done a complete one eighty, I took control of our finances rebuilt my credit and started investing and listening to all you find folks all. I opened it investing account with the goal of saving and building enough a down payment on a home. I'm happy to say we've now reached that goal. I recently sold at a profit because I didn't want that. Money tied up in the market. If we are close to needing it for a house, but now that we're here, I'm not sure what to do. We currently rent a basement apartment and our neighbors general living situation are less than ideal to put it mildly. So, we're champing at the bit to jump into the housing market that being said the experts have been calling for a drop in the housing market for a while, and that was before the pandemic hit now I'm worried that if we buy right away a year or two or three from now, interest rates will spike, and we could be put in a difficult situation. I live near Toronto. Canada or the housing market is already highly inflated in relation to the rest of the country should I be worried? While Randall first of all congrats on turning your financial life around love hearing success stories like that so good job on that. So I'll start with my standard answer with the rent versus buy decision, and that is just pull up spreadsheet and compare the all in cost of renting, including what you could earn on the money that use for down payment versus the all in cost of buying including the opportunity cost of putting down payment as opposed to having invested as well as insurance and taxes and maintenance, and all that stuff and project, where you might be in five to ten years based on various scenarios on what happens to stocks, if you. Rent an invest the down payment versus what happens to? What you'd look like depending on where home prices go. Generally speaking. If mortgage rates go up, that could way down on real estate prices we did see mortgage rates. Go Up for a bit a few years ago, but the housing market did find, but you could certainly envision a scenario where rates went much much higher, making houses, much less affordable and prices would have to adjust. But I don't expect that to happen anytime soon. I think we're. GonNa have low rates for awhile, but beyond that I don't know I've given up trying to predict where interest rates are going or even paying attention to people who try to predict where interest rates are going, so who knows? That said since you live in Canada. I thought I'd check. In where rates are these days and I and I got a brief reminder that things are actually different in Canada so I did a little bit of research. And then realize I had reach out to someone who knows, I reached out to Canadian Motley fool analysts Jim Gillies, and he had some thoughts so first of all just for you non-canadians out there. It is really different so in America. We get this thirty year mortgage than we have the same payment for thirty years. It's fixed. They don't have that in Canada. What's the most common is a twenty five year? But only the first few years or fixed. And then adjusts so in that context you can understand why Randall is worried about interest rates going up because over the next depending on which alone he gets the most popular is a five year fixed, and then you basically have to go get a new loan probably. So that put that in context, a little more, but also Toronto, really is crazy expensive. Vs from the end of last year that put it as the most overvalued real estate market in the world behind Munich. As Jim pointed out in our call here in the US we had our housing peak in two, thousand, six, two, thousand seven, and then we had what he called a reset, which is basically prices came down significantly candidate and have that slight downturn at home prices, but then they just kept on going up, so it really is different there, so when Jim explain all this to me, the difference in mortgages and the difference in home prices. Frankly he was inclined to say to this guy. You Might WanNa rent for while more and see what happens, but he also had the good advice of okay. What if you buy in prices? Come Down Fifteen percent twenty percent. What if they come down to a point where he upside down? You owe more than the home is worth. Are you okay with that? If. You're okay with that. Maybe it's okay to do that. But it certainly sounds like dicey situation than if someone were telling me like I'm thinking of do this in Dubuque Iowa or something like that. couple of other differences. In case you're curious about Canada in the US. Your mortgage is portable in Canada south. You Buy A. Get the five year mortgage, but then move get to take the mortgage with you for the next house and interest is not tax deductible. US Look at you, Robert, broke? Camp Can Canadian real estate experts there you go. Next! Question comes from Chris. I was on twitter the other day and saw that one of your contributors Brian Feroldi tweeted that he doesn't believe in a long list of technical trading terms and then modern portfolio theory. Can you help me understand what not believing an MP? T with mean this? He believed that diversification doesn't reduce risk. Also every financial adviser I've ever talked to his preached empty, so I would love to hear the counterargument. Jason you're not Brian for all the. Question I am not Brian for all the do get the talk of Brian Pretty good bit though. I I must admit I. Don't know what he said here in regard to modern portfolio theory and all of these technical trading arms. But I think I can take a guess. Generally speaking I agree with them, and I think you could sit there and look up the portfolio theory in you know read about it as much as you want. Just go to google modern portfolio theory, and you can dig right in there, but in a nutshell ultimately, what modern portfolio theory is the intention behind it? It's meant to reduce risk while maximizing returns. It assumes that investors don't like risk. They prefer less risky portfolios to riskier ones in order to achieve a certain level of return so right there. I kind of kind of lost me right there because I don't believe that every ever investors risk averse I think some investors have a very. Healthy, appetite for risk, and frankly I would say I got a pretty high tolerance for risk when it comes to investing, made it just because of what I do for a living but I. You know to me I like having that trade off least unhappy. Happy to take some risks there. If I feel like that upside, it's going to be potentially worth. So with modern portfolio theory, it introduces a lot of fancy math in the form of variances and correlations in order to come up with this. Quantifiable, investing strategy that ultimately helps reduce risk while allowing the investor to achieve. Certain returns in. Maybe it works for some not I'm not dismissing it personally I. Don't use it, I don't personally subscribe to it I. Don't need it. I think honestly for us. In a really believe it's extends to to most people in our full universe is that is individual investors I think a more meaningful way to reduce risk. is to just extend your timeline like invest longer. So like Tom Gardner said a number of years back when we were. Working on Motley, fool one basically take your take the time line that you think you want to own any individual stocks you buy shares of starbucks and I plan on owning it for you know five years. Okay, we'll just double it. Cloning it for ten in all of a sudden right there. You've given yourself more time. Time is one of the big advantages we have is individual investors. Money managers don't have that advantage, Wall Street done generally handed abandoned, either, but if you can be patient and just invest in good businesses. That risk really starts to come down over time. There are plenty of studies out there. That show that risk comes down the longer you hold onto those stocks, which into me, just renders modern portfolio, theory, more or less not useful mean on things, not useful for everybody, but it's not useful for me and based on Chris. Question It sounds like a agree with what Brian was saying there. We think I'll add to. That is I agree that risk is really not that much of a consideration if you are saving for retirement. But once you are in retirement man, and just say like you know what the market's not I'm going to extend my time highs in ten years. Because you need to spend money in that situation, I think diversification is important. It's important to have assets that don't always move the same direction at the same time. For some fools. That's just as simple as keeping any money need the next five years in cash, so you're right out any ups and downs, and that can be fine. But I. do think it makes sense to have. A mix of investment so that right now, technology stocks are doing very well, and we hope that continues to do well, but we remember was that happened in two thousand from two thousand to two, and there were down for quite a while anyone who retired in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, or so it was very happy to have some small caps value maybe a. A little international, some reits to ride out the storm Yeah I think we talk about that often like recognizing where you are as an investor in life, are you in the grow your wealth stage, or are you in the protector stage, because they are two very different strategies, and we're all hopefully going to be in both of them at one point or another right? I personally and still on the grow your wealth stage I. Think we all probably are, but you will at some point get to where you need to focus on protecting the wealth that you've made so that you can then have that money to spend, and that definitely will dictate your investment strategy things that you're invested in and whatnot. Generally speaking I do like the idea for people who are just risk averse and have this notion that investing is just too risky. I mean the fact of the matter is not investing as far away greater risk like not investing. You will never grow your money if you don't the best, so if if if risk is a problem, I think generally speaking. Along the lines of diversification idea that that bros. talking about him, he just invest in invest in SNP index fund is something that just follows the progress and p. you know you're going to be participating in and if you look at that over the over the stretch of time, their five ten twenty thirty years, I mean that trend does go one way. It, but clearly the older you get, the more you need to start focusing on protecting your wealth, and that will change the way you view things. Right next question comes from Alex from Alexandria if I buy Muny bonds from another state in my IRA. Is it still taxable and Alexander with who we have a bond on and we do have a bunch. I know Alex up super excited about having a bunch on in Alexandria to I can't believe I haven't been there. It's like two miles from my house, but we still haven't been oh i. know because there's a global pandemic going on and we. saw. Alyx if we buy me bonds from another state in my IRA is still taxable. Bro, help him out or her or so Muny Barnes. People Invest Immunity bonds because they're free of federal taxes and in many cases. If you're buying bonds issued by the place you live, they might be free of state and local taxes, so that can be doubly triply tax free. That's why people buy 'em. There are some times, however that if you own immune, abound outside of an IRA. Pay Taxes and this surprises some people. There's something called the minimum tax. If you buy immunity bond at a discount, and then it matures at par. If you buy a distress, Muny bond for like you put an eight thousand dollars, and you sell it later for ten thousand dollars as a capital gain. You'll be taxed on that. So, there are some times when you would pay taxes on media. Now, Alex is asking what if it's an IRA? Do I have to worry about paying tax interest. If it comes from another state and the answer is no, you won't have to worry about that. The only thing I would say is. Generally speaking immune bond already has built in tax advantages, so you wouldn't keep it in an IRA, unless there's the example of the stuff I was saying previously like for. It's one of those exceptions when him UNIBOND would result in taxes than you might WanNa keep it an IRA, but generally speaking. If you're going to buy Muny Bond, keep it out of an IRA. Next question comes from Boone. I just did my first. Roth conversion and looked at that old account for the first time in. There was the expected dividend producing fund I remembered, but there was a stock chesapeake energy that I had completely forgotten about since I purchased the stock in two thousand, six fifteen. It's down way down like eight point five percent off the purchase price. What should I do with it now? It's in a tax deferred accounts so I. Don't think the loss is realized until I. Start to pull money out of the account and that might not. Not Be for fifteen years current value of all my shares will be about one percent of the value of the account after the conversion. Do I sell in the very little value? I had left and depend on E. Trade to keep up with lost for me or should I hold on based on the slim chance. The stock will be worth more in the next ten years. Oil Stocks do act unusually on occasion, only oil stocks. Stock everything else makes that usually. Chesapeake has been really. Interesting Story to follow and frankly. I don't I. Don't know that I would look at it today. As a business that I'd WANNA own so typically if I. You know I think it was yet idea. Didn't sound like a position are actively building united investment didn't work out. I mean that that happens to all of us. We don't get them all right. We have a philosophy here at the full. A lot of do we like to? Water flowers and pull the weeds, and that's just a nice way of saying. Add to our winners in to get rid of losers in. This I think is more than likely slated to continue being a loser I mean. Chesapeake has lost a lot of value. In it does sound like based on when you purchased this, these is absolutely busted I mean. There there are all sorts of reasons to sell one of them is if you thesis busted and the reason why you invest in the company is is no longer the case, and I would he probably is the case with Chesapeake so to me like you know, you could sit there and let it go, but but what's the goal trying to get back to even, or are you trying to get back a couple of bucks for me a lot of times? I'll I'll take a little opportunity here and there to just go ahead and pull those weeds sell it. Be Done with it. In even though it's just unique out a little bit value there, you can still take that money and do something more productive with it. So. Yeah T to me. I can't tell you to buy or sell obviously, but I can certainly understand. Selling in this case, but I you know. As as oil and natural gas energy can can turn around. This is going to be one that has a lot of headwinds in in. You might be waiting a very long time to to get any of this money back. I point out here that I it seems that maybe boone has a slight misunderstanding of how taxes in aries work because he talked about realizing the loss when he takes the money out and trade keeping track of the loss for him, it sounds to me that he thinks that he can write the loss off whence he takes the money out. That may not be the case, but just to be clear. One of the great benefits of an IRA is you don't pay taxes on the gains, interest and dividends from year to year. But. One of the drawbacks is. You can't take a capital loss on that as well so there's really no no way to benefit on your tax return from this loss. Next question comes from Benjamin. You recommend seeing a fee. Only financial adviser for check in every so often I know there is the Garrett planning network and others to help find an advisor. But what questions do you ask? And what answers do you listen for when trying to find one that is worth his or her one hundred fifty to two hundred fifty per hour. So I would say start first with asking yourself some questions. What are you looking for? You could go for the whole launch. Lada where someone is managing your money analyzing retirement plan helping new save and a five twenty nine. Maybe even doing your taxes with some financial planners do help with the state planning, or are you looking for something more targeted? You just want advice about am I saving enough for retirement, or are you close to retirement? You're like I just WanNa make sure that I'm doing right when terms like choosing my Medicare plan and claiming social security at the right time, so first of all just be very clear of what you're looking for. Then if it involves investments in any way, you WanNa, make sure that you find someone who is at least in the general same area philosophically and I say this, because many financial planners are hardcore index. And if you come to them as a motley fool, listener member with a lot of individual stocks. They may say okay. I'll give you some general asset allocation guidance, or they'll say I don't care if you like to pick. Stocks are not my advises, sell the stocks and go to index funds, so you want to make sure that if you're gonNA, ask for any sort of investment. Advice that you wanna find someone who's someone somewhat at least aligned for what you're looking for. Once, you've got that then. Just asked some of the typical stuff. You might expect so credentials certified financial planner. Are they a CPA either their personal financial specialist. How long they've been in the business. There are lots of people who. have not been in the business very long. Even though they're not young people, a lot of people choose financial planning as a second career, which I think is great, but just because someone may be look like they're in their forties or fifties. Sixties doesn't mean they've been in the business that long, and you WANNA. See if they've worked with someone like you right so if you have. Maybe. You have a large amount of wealth large income huge portfolio. You WanNa make sure that they have experienced with dealing with those issues, but on the flip side to if if you have, are you know middle income, decent size portfolio, but nothing too complicated. You don't WanNa. Go to someone who's used to dealing with someone who's wealthier partially because those people charge a lot more. You want to find someone who's kind of a little more lined up with what you're doing. Then make appointments with three folks. All of them will do get do free. Get acquainted means, and you're just looking for someone who you feel comfortable with. Since, you mentioned Garrett Big Fan of the Gary Planning Network and other is is not for the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers. But Garrett on their website has a how to choose an adviser section. Just Google attitude visor Garrett Planet Network has a great chapter from a dummies book that they wrote about how to choose adviser, and they have a good questionnaire that you can print out in US asking lots of good questions of financial planner. It's tough. Choosing a financial planner like my mom just went through that Bro! Is You know and she didn't really have a lot of options in Boise Idaho. Maybe two and one of them, she I never called her back, and never got back her, and the other one was just so busy just so busy, and just she just never. It's it can be rough. Finding a financial planner can be I. Think what we'll see is one of the consequences of this. Of the coronavirus pandemic. Just, like we are all used to working from home, many financial advisors and financial planners an now working from home. So in what they're doing is they're becoming licensed in more states. So, if you are more comfortable, working with someone over zoom remotely I think you don't have to stick with someone in your area. You can go beyond your locations, but you know some people don't feel comfortable that if if they're going to have someone managing their life savings, they want to be able to meet them in person. That's just a personal choice. All right next question comes from twitter. Is that right from sully what I hear? Okay? I just listened to the episode mentioning Your Weakness Two. Shopping carts and Tj, Maxx that me or you Jason. Accused me. Thoughts on the stock. If I had a war on Amazon, basket would be Costco TJ maxx Home Depot tractor supply. What would be your basket against online retail? That's funny. Well okay, listen I wouldn't have basket against online retail, because online retails where it's at. The whole idea. The whole idea behind the basket approaches to find a long term trend that you feel like the world is headed toward and so the war on cash basket, for example that was always one about people using cash war, traffic payments now with that said I get the spirit of the question some going to answer it because I do like some of these ideas. And I I would definitely include Costco in their in Home Depot's well. Home Depot gets a lot of my money. Doesn't, but they have a very loyal fan base of customers that just are happy to renew year in year out. So I love those membership models there, so costco and a Home Depot for sure you know I'm going to give a little shout at my wife Robin I. Know that she would approve of my adding target to the mixer. She hasn't been raving about targets APP and ordering on the APP the able to go to the store. Just pick it up right there I've talked with Ron Gross on more than one occasion about target and how this really has. Become a twenty first century resale right they're doing. They're doing everything online and in physical stores. What they call Alma Channel and then my fourth and I'm GONNA. Take this. You probably aren't expecting this when Alison. I'm GonNa Shock and all you. I'm ready. I'm ready Alta. We're going. Make up my I know my daughter's love. It ugly ugly Mug like this. What do I know about makeup? Tell you what. Get! A House with two daughters and a wife. That's what I know about make. There's a lot of it in an Ulta is a really really good business. They actually have a very nice diversified revenue stream. They've got the salon a`dynamic of the business which encourages people to go there they do have an online business. They have an augmented reality function there at where you can actually like. Try things on makeup to see how it looks. Mary Dillon just a phenomenal other adults of that's my fourth, their Ulta but they I appreciate the spirit of the question I like the idea I'm not saying this is the basket. I'm not tracking this basket in a not a not backing this basket, but in the spirit of the question if I had to develop. A basket, such as this one I think it'd go with those four. Yeah, I mean I guess you just have to think about what retail out there is something that you would still physically go to. Because the actual retail experience is being in the space is the experience and what you're there for? And I know I mean before Corona virus we I would go to target and just just couldn't believe how much money I had spent from walking through a few of the aisles. TJ Max is just a phenomenal business I mean what they've done through the years. Is really capitalized on the nature of the business, the advantage they have in that treasure hunt kind of nature like you go to TJ Max, maybe not necessarily looking for something, and then you end up finding a lot of things, and it can be a little bit lumping at times, but but generally speaking like management's a very good job of running that business, and they know how to exploit the advantage of experience. I think they're online game. Though I think they could probably get something going with online, and they just have not have not yet and so I. Haven't since Corona Virus for example. I haven't spent a single dollar there, but I continue to still shop at. Home Depot I. Think Yeah! We still shopping at home depot because we're doing. You know you gotta buy lumber somewhere. And I know my grandparents out in my my inlaws out in rural Virginia. They love tractor supply store, but that's not. That's not in where we live, but. Still New deck at the house there allison. I mean you, can you see? A big exposed beam behind me and some drywall work that needs to happen. Have lots of drywall work that needs to happen now though. Yeah Anyway get to that. All right next question comes from Matthew. I got married to my amazing wife nine days ago in a small Kobe nineteen wedding in our front yard after we postponed it from its original date in April all. It was definitely different, but still very special. My question is in relation to this wonderful event. My salary has been at a level that has allowed me to fund a roth. Ira I love the optionality of it, but after marrying my bad ass, wife are combined. Salaries are now over the limit that would allow me to fund the Roth. IRA does this affect occur immediately? Do I need to now open up a traditional. IRA and begin funding it or do I have until the end of the year. Matthew wants a Roth Bachelor party one last. Well Matthew I have bad news. When it comes to most things in taxes, your status and your age and things like that depends on where you are on the last day of the year, said if you're married on the last day of the year, you were considered married for the whole year. So that means if you contributed started contributing to a Roth IRA for twenty twenty. You need to call up your brokerage. Firm and re characterize that as a traditional. Now don't have any other traditional IRA, as it's very easy to do the back door, Ross which we've talked about before you can just google it or even when you call the brokerage, just say I want to do the backdoor. Roth and they'll tell you what to do. If, you have other traditional IRA as you can still do. It just becomes more complicated and you'll probably pay more taxes. So you, but you may not be totally out of luck and I should say that's only if you have a traditional IRA doesn't matter if your wife has traditional areas. One exception by the way of of what I just said. In terms of tax status and last day of the year is distributions from retirement accounts before it's age fifty nine and a half, you actually have to be age fifty nine and a half to avoid that ten percent early distribution penalty, unless some of the many exceptions that are out there exist. Right next question comes from Warren Warren Buffett. Maybe I don't know that's why I was thinking. He's asking about coq, so maybe maybe. Once James Opinion on coke. By? Or hold? Wants to now. I'd give buffet night give. Kiesel Warren of the same advice and I would say. For some I'm not buying it. Not Buying it I'm not holding it if I own it. I guess that means sell it. Even Atlanta Georgia person like you i. feel like it's almost sacrilege. I am pretty close to probably not being ever even invited back. But the facts are the facts. Okay, I mean you do have to look at the stock itself has been ain't bad stockton for the last five years. I mean I do understand why when you look at it what they do, I mean they have. Four hundred master brands, and less than fifty percent of them are the big global brands that are actually responsible for almost all of their revenue when I say almost only ninety eight percent, so it's a business. It's very reliant on on. You know a small portfolio of really successful grants. The problem is now. We've always talked about cocoa beans such a great distribution story and that's true. They've got a distribution network. It's just phenomenal, but the problem is now. They're what they're distributing is is being seen as not so good for you in so you're seeing them. Have it into to essentially pivot away from what you know brought them all of the success for all these years. Years in soda and that that's not going to change I. Mean you're always GonNa have people to drink soda? People are not to drinking as much soda going forward in the numbers of just kind of the kind of shown that through that through the quarters in the years of Coca, Cola and Pepsi Pepsi. Has the salty snacks division, which I've always been very. Impressed by I, mean I love a good Cheeto, and so I mean anytime you can throw a bag of those cheetos in my Patriot Amok GonNa, turn it their coq. Interrupting, but I think this is also very important point. You tried the Jalapeno White Cheddar crunchy cheetos. The White Shit or so. I've tried to Jalapeno ones but I've not seen the white Cheddar White Cheddar Jalapeno crunchy cheetos. Don't get the puffy. The poofy ones are not as good, but the crunchy white Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetahs. them by them. They're amazing. I have to back. Pain you. I'll get those next time. I promise I, mean Eh. One. crunchy wants the puffy ones, so that people won't you're not? You're not seeing poopie. Who using poofy Joe Copy? We'll be Coca doesn't have that dynamic of their business. They don't have that dynamic to their business, and they've suffered from that Pepsi's Pepsi's outperform coca-cola over the last several years. It's not safe. Pepsi or coke get it back. I'm sure they probably can. But what I am saying is I think there are a lot of better ideas out there, and so I wouldn't be putting new money into Coca Cola and frankly if I did own it. I probably would look at selling it and you know if you've got a beverage company, maybe own starbucks. It seems like the science coming out in support of coffee, right? It's coming and telling you that these sodas. They're gonNA. Make you fat. Coffee, it could extend your life. It could help you live longer. SMART Mexican looking this a starbucks as well is. That sounds like study from the copy roasters of America. Do! Something that Chris Hill sent me the other day. that. We sleep at night. I'm glad I've been drinking coffee as long as I have God knows what I would look like otherwise. You're a good looking man. Rick. good-looking next question comes from. A. I'm trying to save money for my kid's College. Fund while the five nine is a great option. I'm limited to investing in mutual funds, which means at best I'm going to get what the market gets assuming I do some sort of low cost index fund and I be a capital F. Fool investor have been doing much better than the market in the last three years of being a member of. Of Stock Advisor Enroll breakers, even during this pandemic mess by listening to every full podcast and following David and Tom's and yours and every one else's in the full universe. My portfolio of about one hundred stocks is up here today. Thirty percent to the market's down five percent as of day as of today weighed down by three sluggish five to nine plants that are also down five percent each. I feel like throwing away money by using the five to nine, and not being allowed to select my own great companies in which to invest. What's more, my understanding is that the five to nine does not count as an asset for the kid when applying for student aid, but the coverdale does. So I come to you with a simple question. Can I have my cake and eat it, too? What if I wanted to use the coverdell to buy individual stocks? Until the child is nearing college? At which point I then converted to a five to nine. This allows me to get better returns and avoid it being an asset for financial aid and get the favorable tax benefit. So, chose this question, because first of all Dune does a good job explaining the benefits of the coverdell over the five twenty nine, you can buy individual stocks. You can buy and sell them all day long. We recommend that, but you can. Whereas with the five twenty nine, you can only make two changes to the investments a year, and it's all mutual funds. So. That's you did a good job of explaining that. I will point out with the coverdell. It's gotta low contribution limit of only two thousand dollars a year, so for some people save more for college, but they can max out to cover it out, but then put the rest in a five twenty nine. One thing that doomed does not have quite right. Is The financial aid treatment the financial aid treatment? Coverdale's and five twenty nine is identical. They're treated as assets of the parent, not the kid that is favourable from a financial aid perspective. It's not negligible doesn't mean it doesn't have any effect on financial aid, but it's better than an asset that is owned. By the kid. He can. Transfer money from the Coverdell to the five twenty nine. If for some reason, he decides to do that, but you can't transfer it. The other way around so were convinced to try out the covered. You have money in a five twenty nine. You can't move it from the five twenty nine. To the coverdale. What other interesting thing that he pointed out is that he is doing very well with his investments, and he owns about one hundred stocks. We get this question a lot. Either on the show, or on the full live that we run every day for members of full services, and that is how many stocks should I own, and if I owned too many are not just owning index fund watering down my returns, but here's an example if someone owns a one hundred stocks is still crushing the market. Idol last question comes from Cameron thoughts on the valuation of Stone Co in light of the corona virus for a fragile country like Brazil. This could be the tipping point after so many other headwinds. But how does that affect stone? coz Business Jason I. Don't even know what Stone Co is. What is still business? Yes, don't Coz a payments company that's focused on Latin American markets in Brazil and particular in so I guess it could be. Draw you can draw a parallel to to a with square through pay pal at, but generally speaking I mean it's payments. Company focused on Latin America. Primarily Brazil. Is the big money making market kind of like Marco Libra, they're. In I, I, it's a it's. A NEAT opportunity, gained a lot of headline recently, when and it was, it was seen that Berkshire hathaway. Warren Buffett's company Berkshire hathaway taken a five percent position in the company, which is pretty considerable i. Think in the near term. You have to acknowledge the fact that. They're gonNA, be some real headwinds in in Brazil particularly because of the pandemic I mean. The flip side of that is role in same boat kind of in that regard. The entire world is dealing with it, so it's not specifically you know it's. It's not particular to one economy or one country some. To get hit harder than others I, do feel like Brazil. Be at a place where they can recover from this given You know some of the other businesses in the area. I mean that that that I think is. Who knows ultimately how? That's GONNA shake, but generally speaking. I think the move away from cash towards cashless. Transactions in and financial software that's not stopping if anything, this hastens that which which is what I think, Cameron's talking about there and for a company like stone. Co, neither are other companies in the space pags bureau in roquetas libra to but you know moving money around is a big big market opportunity, and there's nothing that says they won't be able to expand well beyond the Latin American markets, too, so I I'd say cautiously optimistic I mean I
Stone tools suggest earlier human presence in North America
"Coming up I, though he's been looking into some stone tools, new muddling analyses suggest humans may have lived in the Americas thousands of years earlier. The many people bolts. Now the of when humans first arrived in the Americas is a hot debate for archaeologists. Well, it's actually a long debated topic as well. This is an issue that arose in the Americas in the eighteen seventies. This is David Meltzer an archeologist who investigates when humans arrived the Americas. Of the past hundred years, or so since archaeologists have gone back and forth on when this might have happened. More recently, thanks to additional archaeological, Ngoma evidence research, his off, starting to converge, go window from when humans first stepped foot on the America's. What we have coming out of archaeology is a number of sites that are sort of in the fifteen thousand years ago range. And so that gives us a minimum age. We know the people were here by that date the ancient. Is pointing to a split. Between Northeast Asian populations and those groups that would come into the Americas happening around Oh twenty, three twenty four thousand years ago, and that kind of gives us a maximum age so somewhere between that twenty, three, twenty four and fifteen is probably the window within which we got people leaving Northeast Asia crossing the Land Bridge and coming into the Americas within this window for many archaeologists. Archaeologists is most likely. The people entered the America's around sixteen thousand years ago. This is due to the prevailing well-established archaeological evidence, which is also backed up by climatic conditions before this time between sixteen thousand and twenty thousand years ago, it would have been difficult for humans to migrate across the Land Bridge from Asia Ju to the presence of giant bowls of ice in North America. This was a time period within the last ice age known as the last glacial maximum or L. GM. If you get to Alaska during the last glacial maximum your in a cola SAC, and so you've got basically two massive ice sheets better blocking your way out, but this week in nature there are two papers that pushed the date of human arrival back thousands of years before sixteen thousand years ago. One has examined the cave deep in the desert Mexico known as cheeky to the oldest dates. We have our somewhere around thirty thousand years ago. This is sipping our delion, the lead archaeologist examining the cave. Hundred years ago would push back human arrival to well before the last glacial maximum when blocked entry into North America. There were some clues that that cave have something. In those layers belonging to the GM that seemed to suggest humans and I was very skeptical, bought Chiquita Cave. If you go deeper and deeper into excavations without stopping when you hit. The Marker. Of the fourteen thousand orbiting thousand, you may get lucky. You may get into something that's been invisible for quite a while with evidence of human during the last glacial maximum, Ciprian was encouraged to look beyond the SPIRA and dig deeper to older sediments. By taking. SCIPION found an array of unusual stone tools that he thinks made by people that inhabited the cave. flaked stone tools made a very peculiar material, which is re crystallized green limestone. So they searched for this particular kinds of stone around the cave, and they consistently picked the Greens variety and used it to to make very good. Looking artifacts that are already shaped, so it's not the typical flint or obsidian. He would find many places during the Now this isn't the first evidence suggested that humans have been in the Americas this early. That oversights weather have been claims of human occupation born twenty thousand years ago, but these are being disputed by some archaeologists. Also there are comparatively few sites of this age in the US or Canada so far. If, we seem that people initially crossed into Alaska across the lumberjack known as Berangere, and then migrated south would expect to find more traces of them. Well. That's where the second paper in nature this week comes in is offered by one of the researchers who's been investigating Cheeky Wheaty Loretta Devia so we were looking at archaeological and colonel metric, so that's essentially radiocarbon dates, luminescence dates from forty two archaeological sides from north, America and Brinda by collecting and analyzing Archaeological Evidence News Associated Dates Loretta, and her co author were able to build a model of human dispersal as populations found out from Alaska across North America. Whilst? This model doesn't find new dates for out of fax. It uses known dice to suggest when people would have I reached the different sites across North America. We were able to see that. Humans were present in North America before during and after the. Maximum, but that human expansion didn't actually occur until later during a period of abrupt sort of global warming, this only did the populations were low during the last glacial maximum, and then rapidly expanded once things go warmer is also backed up by scipion archaeological evidence from the cave in Mexico as soon as you reach the layers in the deposits of the case that day to about. Eighteen, sixteen thousand you the number forty facts just. triplicated number scipion also things this could help explain what was so little evidence of humans during before the last glacial maximum. It's almost impossible to find them I. mean you have such a huge chunk of our planet with just a few footsteps on it? That's that's how I looked like I mean you can barely coli to. populated, continent, but do these papers roll back the daytime when humans were present in the Americas. Well. It may be too early to tell for David. Meltzer you heard from earlier. It wasn't involved in this research. When it comes to the cave, he thinks of a still questions be asked about the tools that were found based on radiocarbon dates that they have I think the radiocarbon dates look awfully solid. It appears as though this technology lasted for minimally according to the dates around sixteen thousand years with a stone tool tradition bat, long lasting one would expect it to have been far more widespread in the region instead of being localized to this this one cave David. Perhaps archaeologist just haven't found stone tools like this. Unless could account for why they don't appear to be widespread. He did have questions as well regarding wind don't to change over the sixteen thousand year period. They were found. The him is quite strange. CIPRIAN however argues the. Maybe that isn't so unusual. If you look at other places in the world during the Ice Age, the stone technologies did the remain the same for many thousands of years without significant changes. So that's what happens that she reach. It behaves more like stone tool industries in the old world where they remain unchanged for thousands of years for the second. Paper David Vote, but Laurynas analysis was sound. He did have some questions regarding some the sites that were included in the analysis. In some cases, these sites themselves, the data is highly ambiguous, so you've got a well dated site, but the artifacts or the indications of a human presence may just be shattered, bone or cut mark bone, and those of us that do field work that deal with this kind of thing know that there are a lot of natural processes that can mimic human actions on bone or stone, the debate surrounding when humans first came to the Americas is far from solved this newspapers at evidence to it been many ways. They raise a lot of questions as well. Perhaps though they will inspire archaeologist to dig deeper to find the first Americans at the moment subject to change if you look at the converging genomic and archaeological evidence, it looks as though people are coming in soon after the less maximum. So Sixteen fifteen and a half thousand years ago. Could they have been there earlier? Absolutely? But if you're going to make the argument, it's going to require you know well laid out case. That was David Meltzer. From Southern Methodist University in the US you also heard from Cipriani Audet Leeann from the University of Texas in Mexico and Lorena, Sarah Devia from the University of Oxford here in the UK and the University of New South, Wales in Australia, we'll put a link to the papers.

Coca-Cola's stock surges, after profit beats expectations while revenue falls a bit shy
"Quarter results for Coca Cola Kate volume down profits down thirty three percent, the biggest drop in quarterly revenue. In, twenty five years and yet. Shares of Coca. Cola op couple of percent this morning. Jason Because CEO James Quincy says basically, the worst is over and so I guess optimism carries the day. I mean yeah, hopefully that is, that is the case you're right. They did note in the called that they felt like the second quarter of the quarter. This is reported was going to be the most impacted quarter. Further year in. You know it's interesting to think about the impact of this business because you would kind of think. Maybe it shouldn't be that bad, but that's only if you. Are Thinking about grocery store aspect right I mean. There's a tremendous F. and B.. Restaurant dynamic to this business in when you look at it from a global perspective that obviously. is going to make a big deal given all of all of the shutdowns in the restaurant sector over the past several months, and it does feel like. I! Say this only partly tongue-in-cheek. It really does kind of feel like coca-cola needs to do something. Different they need to change and I think that you know. We've always been really high on Coca Cola as distribution playwright. We've always talked about that. It's real competitive advantage so let's take that. Let's go one step further because clearly I mean if you determine that you are a SAS business if you call yourself as SAS business, no matter whether you're a SAS Iran. The market is going to give you a little love for that. A COCA COLA'S BEEN A. A very very bad stock known for the last five years. It just has the returns aren't there Pepsi's been a little bit better, but really cocoa has been falling short on a number of fronts, but soda as a service Chris Sas I. Mean Maybe we've had this discussion on the show before. I can't remember old confused but soda as a service. Maybe that's something that could at least helped light a fire, some optimism under the stock because you're right. Even with. The performance today I mean it seems it seems to us to be material, but when you look at the performance over the last five years it actually it is kind of meaningful, because this is not a, it's not not a company that's performing A. Liking it once used to, and I think that has to do with lot just the fact that they're selling. Drink. That is becoming. More and more obviously not good for us.

Top Anti-Aging & Longevity Expert Brian Vaszily Shares All
"I'm here with Brian Vase Lee who is a popular and outspoken advocate, author and researcher with over two decades of experience in natural health who opposes the widespread perception that likens getting older to getting a disease, and who instead supports the truth that your forties, fifties sixties, and beyond can and should be the best years of your. Life Brian is hosting the worldwide release of his second major online summit called the little known. life-changing Health Summit The relaunches tomorrow July twenty second. This is really the pinnacle of his missions I'm really excited to have you Brian here on the show to tell us a little more about that welcome. Welcome Paul Thank you for having me Samantha. How are you an Perry well very well? I can't wait to dive in. I mean you've been in the health and wellness field for such a long time. You were really key to building more cola dot, com, and so many other organizations that we've all admired for years. You really could have done anything with your background and your expertise so I'm curious. How did you end up becoming such a leading voice for anti aging and longevity? Really for two decades, you know I've been both in front of the scenes and behind the scenes in this space if you will And indeed like you said I was at a crossroad, so I grew up in a rather rough Chicago neighborhood and you know there were challenges there for sure, but I guess we'll just take it to the heart of the matter. My Dad was a really good man until age nine, and then he became severely alcoholic, quite abusive to me and to my sister, and to my mother, and it was rough. It was a really really rough time to his credit. We finally did manage to kick the alcohol on the other hand. He still stayed quite bitter really at himself because. He had one heck of an interesting life I'll tell you that I mean he was a spy belief for the US during world. War Two saw some things in Germany. You know that he was. To his dying day was not able to share you know his sworn oath, not to share certain things, but he was previously married. He had a my half brother. His one of his sons was killed, and he had a first wife before that even who they got into an argument, she stepped out of the car, and she was killed on the spot by a truck, heading your, so he faced a lot of things and. And Samantha back in those days I. Think you know an older folks? Listening here might recognize especially you didn't go to counseling or eating. Go to therapy just wasn't nearly as normal or accepted as it is today, so he dealt with it, saying the wrong way big point being as you can hear my heart right now I totally long ago forgave all that he did, but it was rough. I mean when I was younger. When I'm twenty, and he's on finally on his death, but after suffering for years from some serious diseases in a horrible way, I myself got my girlfriend pregnant at that age twenty so very poor myself. Finally he did pass away, so I had it rough continuing on from that point, too. You know I sold my piece. That comes to mind. Remember US I sold my entire CD collections to keep our heat on one month, and you know face all kinds of stuff like that, but this is not a sad story. I'm Kinda. My tissue. Brian Combined Calgary. because. Even know through depression, and and you know certain addictions myself but. The one thing that kept me literally the reason I'm alive. Today still is because of strong women, strong women I had saints have a saint. Still you know for a mother, wonderful strong's older sister, certain teachers who all you know in my case where female and these people kept me on my toes, cut me some cases alive and going through a lot of severe depression and hardship and things like that so. Eternal gratitude for these really powerful women's now you know I made it through. I made it beyond I'm certainly thriving in the most important ways today, but as I moved along there, we talked twenty some years experiences now in natural health and research, and all this good stuff I acquired so much worthwhile. I guess we'll say knowledge from so many wonderful people so many not only factor, certainly a lot of the doctors who who are in this field and experts like yourself and others you know in different aspects of natural health herbalism, certainly essential oils, your expertise, and all these different areas and. Did come to that crosser and two things are happening, said. Wow, there's so much information Samantha that so many people don't realize. Don't have at their fingertips. It's not easily accessible to them. Because we live in the society where the powers that be get to define what health means you know for example in the powers that be you know we all know. These drug companies in the you know the conventional healthcare system as the phrase goes I I'm like wow, people don't realize there's so much they can do when it comes to helping themselves. Helping is prolonging their lives, not just prolonging is but increasing the joy. In the process in other words, not just living longer, but living well doing it, and by the way looking amazing to in the what I call the real way and the other thing that was happening while realize. Wow, have access to all these amazing people as well who I want to share their message and all they're not now just out. All these doctors and others have I also looked it was. was kind of sad because I'm like. Wow, these powerful women that saved me. My Mom's in her. You know Middle Seventies. My sister's in her fifties. My wife is in her forties, and they're all confronting this big gigantic myth, and it hits men, too. Don't get me wrong. We're challenged by this, too, but it. It really impacts women in a much harder way, which is getting older is equated to getting. A disease that getting older equals suffering, and it must equal. Go being over the hill, so to speak Saying goes when you hit your forty, and this is such a pervasive myth out there. That especially impacts women and their psychology almost Samantha that it just drags their whole being down. It's hard not to let it because that's the message out there. If you're twenty one, you're at the pinnacle of the world, and you know if you're in your forty s or beyond, it's all downhill from there. Guess what that contradicted everything that I was an had been. been learning for years from all these natural health docs and others in in this wonderful space, and like that's not true, and it's sad to me to see these super powerful women that saved my life, even impacted by this so I almost had no choice. You know what I'm going to bring forward this message about true deeper, anti aging and longevity to people. And hence the art of anti-aging, and hence you know like you noted, and I appreciate that really the pinnacle of our mission, and all were about. Is this summit on? That's coming up the little known
Fizz Fizz, with Fantastic History of Food
"Dating back at least the seventeen hundreds people of Europe drank natural mineral water believed to cure of variety of illnesses like gallstones scurvy. Even bathing from these natural springs was seen as therapeutic. People literally went for the waters, though that freezes only hanging on its fingernails through the expression I'm not here for the water's usually set of someplace. You don't want to be like work. Many people tried to sell the water off site, but packaging and transportation at the time were prohibitively difficult and expensive, so they went with the next best thing. They'd manufacture their own water. Fine I'll make my own mineral water with blackjack and hookers. Most y'all are confused, but one person just snorted coffee through their nose. Mark my words. In seventeen sixty seven British chemist Joseph priestley tried carbonated water as you would beer by fermentation with yeast. The results were weak, but they worked in seventeen, seventy two. He published a paper entitled impregnating water with Fixed Air. priestley's apparatus, which featured a bladder between the generator and the absorption tank to regulate the flow of carbon dioxide was soon joined by a wide range of variants. However, it wasn't until seventeen eighty one that carbonated water could be produced on a large enough scale with the establishment of companies specializing in producing artificial mineral water. Others improved on Priestley's work, and while he did get respect from the scientific community, he didn't make anything for the invention that made possible a four hundred billion dollar a year industry. American, Inventor John Matthews designed a Soda Fountain that Could Produce Enough carbonated water for all his customers all day in eighteen, thirty, two, leading to the opening of the First Soda Fountain. In Their Heyday Soda Fountains were elaborately decorated places for rejuvenation more like a walk-through health retreat a snack counter and they were usually found in pharmacies. Pharmacists already used sweet tasting flavor syrups like lemon lime to mask the taste of bitter medicines like Quinine, an iron liquid medicine, being the standard form time rather than pills. At some sparkling water and you've got something new on your hands. Sas Parrilla for example was used to treat syphilis, supposedly and phosphoric acid and ingredient in most colas was thought to help with hypertension. The oldest major soft drink America Dr Pepper was created by Pharmacist Charles Alderson in eighteen, eighty, five and marketed as an energy, drink and brain tonic. Soda, the Effervescent News Hadn't medicine. We might be frustrated by. It takes a new medication to get to the market or top of mine a new vaccine, but it beats the old way of doing things at least from the consumer side from the manufacturer's side. The late nineteenth century, the era of the patent medicine was the best time to be alive. You could put anything you wanted in a bottle and call it medicine. You could still go around calling yourself doctor without having to prove it. Mix Up some tap water. Whatever's handy something bitter to make? It tastes like medicine, and then something sweet, so it's not too bitter, and of course if you can booze and hard drugs. Have Pretty printed with filigree and vague, sometimes contradictory claims and watch the money roll in. Behold the age of the patent medicine. Patent medicines are named after the letters patent probably letters patent since it was granted by the English crown. The first letters patent given to an inventor of a secret remedy was issued in the late seventeenth century. The patent granted the medicine maker a monopoly on his particular formula. The term patient medicine came to describe all prepackaged medicine sold over the counter without a doctor's prescription early English patent medicines sold like Jordan's in the colonies like dice Dr Bateman drops, whose original patent was granted by King George, the I in seventeen, twenty six, and was still available into the twentieth century. Not About to let the Brits make off with all the Lucre America began to cultivate their own patent medicines, an industry that boomed in the decades leading up to the civil war in the US very few patent medicines actually had a patent. You could get yourself a bottle. Love hosters celebrated stomach. Bidders Phero China John cleese Kella CEO. Bark and iron tonic reaches embrocations Emerson's Rheumatic Cure. Brooks's Barefoot Appointment SP Goff's magic oil, ligament or something just called salvation oil patent medicine actually played its own small part in the war. The government tax their sale along with the sales of matches, playing cards perfumes at L. to fund the war effort and repay military debt. Just like cigarettes today, patent medicines had to have a tax stamp on them for decades. Thirty years after the civil war, the government returned to Patent Medicine Taxation to fund the Spanish American war, which ran from eighteen, ninety eight to nineteen o two using a distinctive battleship stamp. The second half of the nineteenth century with the rapid growth of industrialization and populations in American cities was a high point for such hokum. Literacy was also improving with meant that they were more magazines and newspapers for patent medicine makers to advertise in and more people who could actually read the ads. There was also a pervasive and widespread distrust for medicine of the day. This was the era of heroic, medicine. Doctors went to extremes like bloodletting and purgatory gives to cure disease. We. Know now that making it already sick person poop their brains out or cutting them with a blade that you didn't know you needed to wash between.

Procter & Gamble: Let's #TalkAboutBias
"Companies combating bias many American. Corporations are taking a closer look at their impact on employees and customers when it comes to issues of diversity and inclusion one of the most visible examples, the stop hate for profit campaign, encouraging advertisers to boycott facebook amid calls for the social media giant to better moderate racist content. We've discussed this initiative at length here on squawk. SQUAWK pod check out Wednesday's episode for our most recent conversation with one of the campaign's organizers, but one of facebook's and Google's biggest advertisers has remained uninvolved in the boycott. That's proctor and gamble the consumer-goods Giant that owns household brands like Gillette. Bounty tied down vicks crest. The list goes on, but while fellow consumer giants like Pepsico Coca Cola and Unilever have pulled or paused their advertising. Advertising with facebook being Jay has not even though PNG has a history of calling out big tech platforms about this very issue in twenty nineteen, the company spoke out against digital media platforms. SUGGESTING PNG could move its aunt. Dollars to services do a better job at keeping their platforms free of offensive content, and they weren't kidding. In two thousand, seventeen and eighteen proctor and gamble had boycotted. Boycotted Youtube for over a year after its ads showed up next to terrorist content, so why his PSG remained on sidelines in this boycott, the company's strategy has instead been to double down on its own approach to combat racism with ads like the look and the talk about conversations. Black parents have with their children in this country. The talk actually won an emmy a few years ago. You were not pretty slow blood. Beautiful period. Okay. I'll never forget that. This week proctor and gamble released another short video choice encouraging white Americans to speak up and stand up against racial bias as well as the Hashtag. Let's talk about bias fostering conversation about race between strangers. Everyone has bias as might be uncomfortable. Can you imagine that officer having his knee on a white woman's neck like that for ten minutes it all starts with biased. Each video is a powerful watch. Damon Jones chief communications officer at proctor and gamble joined squawk box this morning to discuss the strategy. Here's Andrew, Ross Sorkin Damn Good morning to you. The morning before we get into some before we get into some of the details, just just tell us how this came about and I'm curious about what kind of debate there may or may not have been inside the company about how to approach this. Will for years we've been using our voice and position as a leading advertiser to spark these constructive conversation on race and unbiased. You know back in twenty fourteen. We launched a campaign called like a girl to talk about gender bias and twenty seven be launched a campaign all the talk that really shine the light on the conversations that black mothers were having with their children. Children to prepare them last year, bid on a campaign called the load, and recently with the choice we wanted to catalyze even more conversation, giving all that was happening in the world so we know that a lot of the core evil that we're facing right now. Racism sexism than up over. They all start with biased and we can't tackle these problems until we begin. Begin to talk about them, so the challenge is always. How do you do that in an accurate way? How do you do that in a way? That really brings people voices by invite them into really become part of solution. That's our objective with the talk about bias campaign. You know it's an important message, but we're. We're living in contentious time, and amid what some people. People might describe a cancel culture and I. Don't know if you remember when starbucks many years ago, put together their race together program, which immediately drew criticism despite I think it's well intentioned, and my question to you is how you think about that sort of a mix in terms of how you approach this issue, and what kind of feedback you've gotten us for. Sure well I think what we know because we're all about serving consumers, consumers want to know the values behind the brands they buy everyday and as we consider these types of programs, we do it in a fear and accurate in a respectful manner, and we're very clear on our goals, and we want a society that fosters great public discourse, even when we disagree, so we bring multiple views to the table, and we handle those using a very responsible way were clear on the objectives were clear on the outcomes, and we acknowledged that eight. Not everyone's a disagree, but we want everyone to come to the table, bringing their lived experience, but also bringing perspective that are beyond. Beyond their own, so what we did talk about bias. Perish Rangers together right. People who were different have different lived experiences, White, black gay shrink all these dimensions of diversity, and we said let's talk about these things right and sometimes disagree sometimes you'll get a little hurt, but that's the proper process of learning. We've actually taken that same process within the wall to P. and G. writes. The were walking the talk when it comes to bringing people together and getting through some of those difficult conversations at the end of the day. It's not about a popularity contest, but it's about getting to the culture of respect and understanding that we all want to live in.

"Burns not happy. It's gotten issue. Stop Hate for profit campaign just started up a couple weeks ago. Now more than 400 companies. Coca Cola Adidas Ford Lego have evolved, have vowed to halt advertising on Facebook. It's AH growing protest over how Facebook handles hate speech, another harmful content.

The goal of this campaign stop paid for campaign to force Mark Zuckerberg to address the effect that Facebook has had on our society. Mark Zuckerberg, finally this morning and said, You know what?

My advertising. All right, Alison. gotta hire more moderators. And then who decides what is hate speech like we all know. Don't know. Some hate speech. We all know. Okay, way over here. That's that's hate speech. And then there's some stuff in the middle. Where I mean, I I would consider that hateful. Disgusting speech. But what would a moderator Feel it the same way. To say Well, is that Who's Who's that directed at Is that borderline like there's a lot of borderline. Hate speech is a lot of underlying code that gets through to I suppose if you were to clean out just Is other the He really The garbage. That gets through That would help. And so it's to stop a for profit campaign. And now, Zuckerberg what you talking about my revenue. You know who else

Facebook frustrates advertisers as boycott over hate speech kicks off
"America and multinationals really getting in politically. Starbucks, Coca Cola McDonald's corporate advertisers who are now pressuring Facebook and Twitter. Just censor. Post that Don't tow get Thiss, the Democrat Party line political insider Christmas Gala, says The far left has control of the media. It's a scary time for freedom. And freedom of speech in this country, and this is just yet another alarming example. Mikaela says many corporations hate President Trump and their primary goal is to remove him from office. Hershey's Coca Cola and other brands are putting pressure on Facebook, saying, We will not advertise with you until you start censoring. Just like Twitter. Facebook says it's caving to the pressure and will start labeling political speech that Violates its rules. And those rules, of course, favor Democrat points of view. Scott
Facebook shares suffer 8% loss due to boycott campaign aimed at removing hate speech from the platform
"Is our stock in the hour is coming back from some worst losses. Today. It's on the heel of 8% loss back Friday. And then, of course, because a number of several major advertisers now are pulling out of Facebook here to report on. It is candy lines, Kaylie. They're having some struggles. There they are. Interestingly, the shares are now positive on the day that that's probably just in tandem with the games. We're seeing. In the broader market because the list of advertisers pulling out a Facebook is getting longer and longer. It started with Unilever on Friday now includes the likes of Coca Cola, Starbucks, Bro. She's even Pepsico. These air. All companies that spend some $20 billion annually on advertising that are no longer doing so on Facebook and other social media platforms is part of an effort to get the company. To further crackdown on hate speech and post with disinformation on Mark Zuckerberg, in response to this on Friday made some moves on labeling voting related post expanding its prohibition on th beach in advertising, but apparently it's doing nothing to stem the tide. You have to keep in mind David that this is already going to be a difficult year for Facebook from the top line standpoint, given that advertisers are pulling back because of the pandemic, analysts only expect sales growth of about 1% this quarter, which would be the slowest in the company went public by far and these Pullbacks add some risk to that beauty. Accio, for example, one of the top advertiser spent more than $100 million on the Facebook platform last year, and it is not going to do so. For the time being, David. You can do as you suggest, is a little hard to figure out how much just advertisers pulling back period on by the way may be making a point of this to really make a point on civil rights in doing it and how much you really specifically something Facebook's doing. Great. That's a very good point. I will say that this does seem to be a more targeted boycott. And there is some concern on the part of civil rights groups, for example, that are not concerned, but they suspect that other companies will be kind of pure pressured into doing this, as there are these growing calls for social justice issues, just a question of how much of an impact it's really going to have, because even if half of the top 100 Advertisers on Facebook pull out. That's only an impact about half a $1,000,000,000. They're expected to make more than $18 billion this quarter. David

Mike what do you got on Garrick compared to the hockey suspensions. Yeah so I mean I think you guys are right on the ten versus impact and the fact that You know him getting right after getting hit. We'll we'll be different than if he were to be down in a space with smashed in but when you think about the hockey examples And yes those were bad outcomes but you know you so you see sticks to the head into the all the time to me. It's like an hockey. If some guy were to you know do the Happy Gilmore and take your state off and try and stab someone. It's just at a different level with the helmet. Being used as a weapon guys get kicked in the nuts all the time and football. But it's just agreed to use as a weapon so same. Ah Yeah when you are when you are doing something that gets the Internet to provide pretty valid comparisons to happen. You're more uh-huh you fucked up like that is actually a pretty sound a as my favorite thing about Gore the first player take a skate off and try and stop by my fucked up brain. The first thing I thought of was this scene from stepbrothers. That's what I tweeted was like I saw whenever will Farrell is using a bicycle as a weapon and his mom is like I saw my own son. Use a bicycle as a weapon. I tweeted out. I saw my own aggie a helmet. That's what I I was just like. Oh I can get a set brothers reference in here it is one one of those like as bad as some of the takes were and is going this morning some of them are great and obviously if we say this again and again if he was actually hurt word if something actually happened him nobody is making me. He's like that's more of a happy ending and a happy ending but like a safe ending because then we all get to blog about and laugh about it. The the perfect Internet serendipity to have the the banking Neem from the Astros story collide with the football story being like the CHANGEUPS coming Astros bench. Now it is like that is why we have jobs. That is why I love doing this. As one of those moments where it's like this is all worth it. What did you bucks about A? Brian says that Joe Bucks an idiot. I actually didn't even really pay attention. What Buck was saying? What was his stake? That's okay So he if you listen his call on it it would sound to you like he pulled the fucking acts out and Chop Mason Rudolph Pedal he over blew it to the Max and I sat there and laughed as curious situation. Choice was just goes to show. I'm not a huge fan. But he sounded like a Canadian. It when you watch the video well I am a Joe Buck Fan but I mean we all can remember when he you know almost fucking in passed out on air because of Randy Moss. Mooning the crowd so you know he's he's been known to. Maybe overreacted semantics. But again this time as much as I am rallying against the overreaction crowd the in the moment I don't think there was an inappropriate overreaction like in the moment I think as an announcer you have to be like. Oh my fucking God because it is just a moment in history. It's it's an ugly one but like if Joe Buck was just just like well. You know the Joe Buck gets criticized. Both directions like his helmet. Call has catch. Call wasn't good enough. His helmet swing calls too over the top just wanting we forgot when Roger Clemens try to kill Mike Piazza yeah sure. Multiple multiple with the ball hit him square in the forehead with a fastball. Aw and then Piazza breaks back. Clemens fielded it like a ground ball and then through the wooden come get some get some after the game clemens and says I thought it was the ball. Why would that excuse it? Why would you be throwing the ball at him? That's not no. It's not an excuse by ah the ball like it would have been worse like you would have been accurate and probably wouldn't hit him again at point-blank range yeah. What a wild thing to say? I thought it was the ball that I was throwing this short I would I I want every reporter in the room. I WanNa talk to them about this twenty year old incident. How was there not a follow up question like what? What the fuck does that mean? Roger why what you meant to throw the ball at him rocket straight up. I'm afraid of him to they. Don't want this royd eight monkeys GonNa do to me. I mean that had to have been just a moment where an athlete he saw ready just went black myles Garrett. Roger Clemens had the same thing happened in their brain last night which was nothing but puree even mad in the first place. It would've made sense if like like clemens had gotten thrown run out of something like that like he hit piazza in the forehead and then got pissed that he got pissed about it through wooden dagger at Piazza. Grab the Shard and through back. That would make a one hundred percent percents. I'm just trying to play baseball. and You keep throwing things at just keep throwing projectiles at their balls or spears. I don't stop it. Stop it back to the announcer thing like I said earlier I was watching it in a bar full of people and the entire bar reacted like holy shit. If you're an announcer you're going to react now. Is that normal everyday people were. I don't know if he what else he said if he was one of these people like you know like give them a call but yeah but as an announcer you do you have to convey like some people are probably thinking at home so I don't think there was any wrong way to react. I would err on the side of like being like Holy Shit as opposed to trying to keep calm and just won't keep it moving here take a couple more calls before we hit our first break. We got a guy who got hit in the head Mike from Chicago. You get your brain smashed into one point. No actually I was married myles Garrett in this situation Oh you guys I I'm not backing up or or anything so you're a criminal okay so I'm an man barely hockey league on Thursday nights and never play court. You're getting back on defense guys like forty years old fucking i. It's a non check'll you got. Check him he gets up and we're going at it for like two minutes and then Alexa fucking sets me off. He's like learn how to skate. Big Retard like dad just sent me off and I saw red. I took my sick. I cracked him over the top of that I I thought I thought I was GonNa tact by the whole team like but the thing is I wasn't thinking about it just kind of it. Just kinda happened and right after I did it I like. I mean I've got sent out AH took on. My criminal. Wants to their locker room. I Apologize I felt like a piece of shit I go I like got. I got suspended indefinitely. Had to go to a hockey court in front of a whole committee. Committee's reinstated at the end of the day. I got reinstated. You know but well I mean the guy hurt was he. He was he was. We're in a cage. You've learnt a full cage. I mean was picking up for sure I mean he comes up to me. You know I got a wife and kids at home grown member playing against you know I mean. Here's the thing you're a bad person. I mean here's here's the thing you don't sound like a bad person but it. It is scary that there are some people. And I don't know about you or Myles myles Garrett. I don't know if you've got like some anger issues or some shit but some people when they reached their breaking point they might throw a punch or something. It's scary when someone reaches the breaking point when the weapon in their hands and you know what if what if what if you know what the kid bike what if what if your wife one day pissed you off and you. I saw read what I hope. You don't hit her you you. You can't jump into these reactions. No I know exactly. I know exactly what you're saying but it's at the different when you're playing a sport like I agree it's different if you're okay me and like oh I don't have a wife right now and that's completely different. I have self control like that but again I was younger playing a sport. I wasn't exactly sure I didn't really know the rules by no. You can't. It's on how to fix that but it's pretty standard. I I mean you're right. I mean it's good that you should showed remorse and whatnot. I understand yeah I understand but not right what he did but what should happen. Well sometimes. Yeah it's tough to say Shit happens oh when you potentially could merce funk cracking with a stick. There's not it's not an excuse six. There's a difference between it's not an excuse. It is like a reason. You know it's like there is different circumstances when you're playing sports. You're in the heat of the moment you're trying to be violent. Physical someone's coming at you. It is different than your everyday life so it doesn't excuse it but you can't make some of these comparisons because they don't hold weight myles. Garrett has officially made a statement recite last last night. I made a terrible mistake. Lost my cool and what I did was selfish and unacceptable. I know that we are all responsible for our actions and I can only prove my true character through my actions moving forward word. I want to apologize to Mason. Rudolph my teammates the entire organization our fans into the NFL. I know I have to be accountable for what happened. Learn from my mistake and I fully intend to do see okay. Here's here's the problem. That is all well and good that you should have been able to say at your locker without your PR team. Like that was as generic work as not not in a bad way like that we should have been what he said right away at the locker. I'm in he obviously didn't write that. But that's what I'm saying like. He should should have been able you. Don't you don't need you shouldn't write that. That was as basic as it gets. I lost my cool. I was selfish. That was crazy. I'm sorry to everyone that I hurt you needed. Just wait twelve hours eighteen hours and have someone right there for you. I think that makes it seem pretty disingenuous. But obviously he wasn't others. That is right right right right. You're talking about murdering some pretty much but I don't even. I don't know that would be one time where I would be like. WHOA I got crazy? Their hand up he. That's why I say maybe he just hadn't processed it yet. Yeah I guess if he's still media's coming at you. Yeah maybe obviously Ashley swinging a helmet at Somebody's head. I feel like you kind of know you're doing that. But maybe he didn't at some point like no matter what the circumstances are something Kinda sober you up and snap you out of it and that should be it. I just. It's ridiculous to me that people think that I should defend him or anybody should defend him like you cannot swing a helmet at somebody said into it. Pretty Basic Buydell Burgh but I would love to smash that Fat Bitch Fuck in brick. Yeah he's going to take over from me because I gotta get Outta here. I've done the unnecessary show.

Now we're GONNA try to get you through to happy hour going to get you through the chicks in the awesome Barcelo radio and high haters take you through the rest of the night. I gotTA dip out in a little bit. I wasn't even going to do radio at all but I wanted to get some thoughts off on the number one story in the world right now. We'll talk about the Astros right baseball talk myles Garrett there it was in bioethics now. They're I'm all over the map on this myles Garrett thing because the takes are flying flying. They're flying. I mean this is one of those days. One of those instances incidents where like twitter is good bad and ugly all all at once. It's flaky. There's some interesting stuff. There's some stupid stuff but there's nothing quite like those moments and it's crazy that happened like so late in the game so late at night there was a chance that they were few seconds away from just not even happening at all because the game would have been fucking over and instead it's A. It's a like a a play that will live in infamy and be talked about forever so it just is suspended indefinitely. Guaranteed the rest of the season and postseason which is like honestly. If this happened like week two I think is a different story. Because you're gonNA spend fifteen games but the fact is I think it was an easy an an easy decision given that there was only a handful of games left because like all right well. Why don't we just say it's the rest of the season you get almost credit for being you know swift and decisive? When in reality I feel like if it was was much earlier in the season they would've had a more difficult decision on their hands? but I don't We will I think eleven so you'll be missing six games and then the play offs. I don't think they're making the phones lit up. We already got one call. I want to stand up for Garrett so we'll get to those vines lunatics and second we gotta get our thoughts in I but that's I mean listen. The rational take here is like that was one of the fucking craziest plays you'll ever see. It's not a football play. It's not within the scope of play. It happened during a game but it it becomes so much worse when you use something something like that which is basically a weapon. You hit someone in the head and you should be suspended indefinitely but we're also not gonNA act like he tried to shoot someone in the face with a gun. That would be the rational take I feel like the. That's kind of what normal people are thinking but there are people who are a going insane over this like he actually like murdered the person and then there are people on the other side of it who already the browns fans or I guess you said an fans or or some people are making this like political where it's like okay Lib okay pussies like this is not like a conservative or liberal thing. It's just like someone got smashed in the fucking head with a blunt object so this has another to do with like your politics but there are the those are the two things on either end the other spectrum but I feel like more normal people are all going to be on the same page now. Yeah I mean it's pretty down on the middle of understanding like you can't do that. You just cannot do that. It is unacceptable that so that we all agree on now. Where do you fall on? The idea that like this vis could be tried criminally as a crime a- a- I mean probably not because it's like fighting thing in hockey is near assaulting someone punching someone in the face with an malicious Lou Yi arm them right scrambled their brains. So I guess like when you're when you're in Sports it's kind of off the table but yeah there were some serious damage to the team in the League wasn't gonNA cover and it's like if if who is the quarterback Mason Rudolph so that's the dinks of so fucking Big Ben's backup. He's a fucking. That's the other thing too is like someone a lot of meam accounts or three in the same thing like this happened to Tom. Brady eighty someone's going to jail and then you know what that's probably true but it is what it is just circumstances. These are the people my favorite taker. The whole thing is like well. I can't go to work and smash someone in the head of I. Why did that I go to jail for twenty years guests? Always your job at the accounting firm is not the same as going to a football L. literal like modern day coliseum where there is organized violence for entertainment. You know it's like oh I can't watch this guy smashes head. Let's get back to the football game where that's all right argument ever. It's like they are actually tackling the shit out of each other. They're hitting each other another level that you cannot pass but has nothing entity with your accounting firm Karen right and I mean you can say that while you're tackling and hitting and that's within the game trying to win and that's all true but those you guys are also like in the heat of the moment. They're trying hurt. You like old school football players would tell you yeah. We're trying to hit him in the head. We're trying to him in his injured knee. We're trying to hurt the other team because we want to win so this is not the first time they've been dirty playing football and anybody WHO's trying to say that it's just ridiculous I just done specifically this and also like made contact with in the head. It was kind of like the perfect storm of we've seen helmets be ripped off. We've seen punches thrown. We've seen a lot of crazy shit but never like this direct directly and with like he made contact swings and misses. It's a whole and that. That's I went online crazy this morning. I was losing my fucking mind on the commute because people start comparing bring it to toddler choosy and God and Marty mcsorley. NHL Per Tuesay's sucker punch the guy from behind drove his head and face into the ice. This broke his neck and ended his career Marty mcsorley smashed Guy with his stick he fucking convulsed and went into a seizure on the Ice Mason. Rudolph stood up and complained to the refs. He was completely fine and that matters. It does matter it. It's it's like it's everyones cues it at all but it matters punishment it absolutely matters that there are basically no damages. It's almost as if he swung swung and missed in the sense that like if he shattered his face and he was bleeding or he went unconscious or something like that he would probably be banned for life or if he if he he ended his career. Somehow they're probably really would be criminal charges the same way there was people. Were saying Wilbur Tuesday and mcsorley both colleague probation in a court of law so this should to again one guy broke his neck and end his career. The other guy had a seizure. The third guy he got up and was totally fine. If you want to take it to the level where we're talking about legal procedures and legal ramifications two things matter the intent and the damages and in this case there was Shit Donovan Ten and no damages. So you can't you can't say the yeah right no no not no damages but but in comparison to the NHL one bring up basically no damages so all the sudden everybody is putting everything into intent and not results like what if you if you swung and and missed. What would you be saying? Well the intent was still there. Yeah I mean I you know visual there was some damage is so we're talking about suspension. But there wasn't enough damage to talk about fucking jail. Time is just such a crazy visual especially because myles Garrett is a massive human being. It's not like he's just like like the fact that he was just like overhand swinging winging a football helmet because we always talk about one football players get in fights it's like why are you punching each other in the helmet. It's not gonNA hurt. He physically used the helmet as a weapon. I don't know even if he didn't make contact at all he still so it's GonNa get suspended right but I'm saying like if you missed it would have been like Whoa. That was crazy. You know suspended like a couple of games for like intente hurt or some shit. He made contact. So it's like this is a use of a weapon and you get suspended but if he's not knocked out if he's not bleeding if he's not you know visibly because all that shit matters if you're going to look at the ramifications need to look at the results of the act and the really just kind of was my how how differently would you feel if the suspension was Six Games which ends up being the rest of the season verses we spend the rest of the season and saying it was yeah. Can they get to look like we drop the hammer on this because like the reality because you're talking about like a tape showing up of assaulting a woman. Two Games deflating footballs four-game smoking weed. Read out for the season attempted murder the rest of the season and the playoffs. A team that you only had six games left in the team's not going to be the play. They actually finally handled something right. I think they had to. I mean no because they won four domestic by and and they don't have to and they don't do that but in this case they they finally learned their lesson and the fact that it was done on with the big difference. There's not the subjective like Oh this is like off the field. He's not at work where this was on primetime television. The entire sports world was watching. And you just cannot do I. I don't know how people are defending the middle of the second quarter to. I think it would be even crazier because I feel like viewership was probably down by that point. I mean at this point on the Internet. Everybody sees things anyway but had had it been you know like the entire bar just erupted when that happened it was I mean. Raise the fucking like sick. You know selfish viewers. Grammy was like this is awesome. This is pretty gladiator and again. That's the thing. If if Mason Rudolph was like the fucking ground seizing and was like he'll never play again. It would would be you know much more tragic story and we would be talking about sending this guy to court case but it didn't happen so I think football penalty of football punishment. Schmidt is probably more in line with the legal punishment and the other thing. I guess we'll take a call here in a minute was equally well so a lot of people being like. Ah I have one guy today. Say Are we going to ignore the fact that Mason Rudolph attacked him. I attacked has strong kind of trying trying to rip US off which is not supposed to do that. That was a football scuffle. He has every right to respond in kind. And especially. If you're a little bit a lot bigger fucking rag dolls guy in thrown on the ground but there's no yeah with everything else fucking head else was dirty everybody was wrong and myles Garrett went lake or a over the top. It's like if I punch you in the face and you pull out a gun and shot me. It's like well. I instigated but God damn. You can't do that so don't talk to me about attacking. We're talking about a backup quarterback coming out of fucking freak of nature who scuffled applicable little actual freak of nature when he was a recruit in highschool coming to an he looked. Looks like he'd been playing in the NFL for like ten years and you said that he was like he's Com. Super mild-mannered goes to just like say like when those guys iser between the lines..

"cola" Discussed on The Dave Ramsey Show
"We're glad you are here. Open phones. Triple eight eight to five five two two five Brooks is whether it's in Pensacola, Florida, hyper ups, welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. I date how are you better than I deserve. How can I help, sir? Thanks for taking my call. My wife, and I were moving up to a San Diego getting stationed out there. We have a paid for health here cola. And I know you normally say not to buy a house if you're in the military, but made good money last two times, I've done it. And I I'm uncomfortable with having my whole net worth and. In the stock market, basically because we'd be looking at this house stuff. Three hundred fifty K we have three hundred fifteen K retirement already, and I would have to take out two hundred twenty five K and non retirement investments in order to be able to afford a house up there in San Diego. So, you know, I don't want anything stock market us. Don't want everything you didn't one house, especially if I'm only going to live their short time. And I wanted to know your advice. I don't have a problem with not wanting everything the stock market. I would not long distance landlord in order to accomplish my goals. The you're talking about keeping the home that's paid for in. Pensacola when you moved to San Diego is that what you're telling me. No, we have it on the market. I gonna cash out of this now is gonna sell for. Yeah. About three fifty. Okay. And you're not going to be able to buy anything in San Diego for three fifty. Well, not unless I catch up on retirement investments, you know, at two twenty five K and now I can afford something there. Do you have in on retirement? Is that all you've got two point five k non retirement talking about buying a half million dollar house then? Yes, sir. What's your household income? About one eighty okay? The reason we tell folks to not buy in the military in most cases is because you're not in the home long enough for it to appreciate enough. To sell it and make a profit. And also sometimes some military markets have an oversupply of homes on the market. They're hard to resale. So you get stuck in it. And you lose money on it in some markets. Pensacola would not be one of those markets, usually, and certainly San Diego would not be one of those markets, you're going to see incredible appreciation and incredible market activity in both of those markets. You should so so you should be able to get out of this and make a profit on the one you bought there. And that's what you're doing. And you should be able to do the same in San Diego. And I do agree real estate prices are up substantially. I'm not sure that you have to use all of that. I would probably if I were in your shoes. What would I do if I woke up in your shoes? I would either a rant or be? I would pay cash for whatever I bought in San Diego. And that would mean one of two things that neither one of which are going to be comfortable one is not going to. I'm not going to spend as much as you're talking about spending instead of spending five hundred maybe four hundred one hundred and non retirement or. I'm just going to get comfortable in order to have a house like that with having no non retirement investing until I resell this house now if you resell this house, let's say you bought it for five seventy five or five fifty.
"cola" Discussed on Business Wars
"To help the company get its way in the Carters power. He's not the typical Coca Cola man. Most Coca Cola executives are straightforward thinkers, but alert well, he's got a contrarian streak people in Coca Cola still talk about the day over. Got his first bonus. Older wrote a thank you letter, but ended it with a plea for the company to stop handing out bonuses because he felt they were an unfair way to reward employees that raised a few eyebrows, but not as many eyebrows is over its latest idea at a meeting of Coca Cola executives. He suggests finding a way to get Coca-Cola to the front lines. You want us to do. Why run that past me again, over new, they'd react. Like this. So he takes breath. Nudges spectacles. Backup is nose and runs through his vision. Once more, as we know, Europe is at war Hitler's troops are pushing into France as we speak for now, the US is not involved, but I think we all know that if this conflict continues, there's a very good chance that our nation will end up joining the fight against the Third Reich to the executives listening to Oehler not the news from Europe is certainly grim. Belgium fell to the Nazis just days ago. So if when that day comes, what does that mean for Coca Cola? It needs sugar rationing, and other restrictions restrictions. That'll Kerr Taylor profits, our revenues, even our ability to produce Coca-Cola. That's what happened in the last war. Okay, we get it. We get it. War would be bad for business, but it's not as if we can do anything about it. We're soft drink manufacturer. I disagree we can do something. The thing is we're time rationing only applies to non essential product. Therefore, we need to convince the government and the military that Coca-Cola is a wartime necessity. We need to show them that Coca-Cola boosts morale that are drink, improves worker productivity. We need to convince them that Coca-Cola is integral to the American way of life. There are troops will be fighting for the executives. Dismiss alerts plan is crazy. Talk. But a year later, the telegram from the Associated Press in London arrives after seeing that plea. Some in Coca-Cola, think maybe just maybe overt scheme isn't so crazy after all, and then comes the clincher. Early in the war, the British invaded Iceland to make sure it didn't fall into Nazi hands. But now the US has agreed to take over the task of protecting the island. And shortly after the American troops arrive in Iceland, the US war department orders, one hundred thousand bottles of Coca Cola for the troops stationed there. That order convinces the entire company that older tes onto something in the months that follow Coca-Cola bills ever closer ties with the US military. It's rights deal to supply Coca-Cola to military bases in the Pacific. It gathers endorsements from commanding officers who referred troops to unwind with a coke instead of beer liquor, and the company makes a bold promise to the military to it will provide five cent bottles of Coca Cola to US troops wherever they are in the world, no matter what it costs the company step by step Coca-Cola's, getting ready, ready for war. On December seventh nineteen forty one. Japan. Like it's infamous access partners start. I and declared war December nineteen. Forty one America's still reeling from Japan. Surprise strike on Pearl Harbor, but the federal government is wasting no time. Just six days after the attack. The government imposes tough limits on the use of sugar in the production of non essential goods. It's the moment of truth for over its plan. Can he convince Washington to exempt Coca-Cola from the sugar down. In meeting after meeting in Washington overt makes his case to bureaucrats and politicians. They send him packing. He gets a Coca Cola executive appointed to the war production board, but even having a man on the inside doesn't help. Olert even takes his campaign all the way to the office of the vice president. But the answer's still the same. No. By spring nineteen forty two. The impact of the sugar curbs are already showing. Coca-Cola is now in short supply throughout America, much to the annoyance of millions of cola guzzlers for Coca Cola. It seems a disastrous situation, but then alert spots a loophole in the sugar restrictions. The rules only apply to products made for civilians. If Coca-Cola makes its drink for the military, then there's no limit on the amount of sugar. It can use Coca-Cola, wastes no time in exploiting that loophole it steps up production to meet the swelling demand for military training camps. It starts shipping Coca-Cola to troops stationed all over the world, but that's easier said than done. Coca Cola has to fight for shipping space would otherwise be used for guns munitions and other military supplies, and then there's the problem of how to get all those empty bottles back to the US for refilling. It's a logistical nightmare colas getting through, but barely. But Coca-Cola has a five star fan General Dwight Eisenhower. The supreme commander of allied forces in North Africa, guzzles Coca Cola. He wants the troops to enjoy the drink too. And he hits on a solution Eisenhower, asks the Coca Cola company, descendants people to the battlefront to Bill bottling plants that can keep the co of flowing dozens of Coca Cola engineers, head to North Africa to build those plants. Coca-Cola's people even follow the troops as they fight their way up the leg of Italy dishing out bottles of Colo between the firefights for the troops, the arrival of Coca Cola taste of home in a foreign land as US fighter pilot. Robert Scott wrote in his memoir God is my co pilot. If anyone asked us what we're fighting for, we think half of us would answer the right to buy Coca Cola. And for the people those coke swigging GI's liberate. Coca-Cola becomes a symbol of hope. Coca Cola might not have been popular in Europe before, but it certainly is now why it's the sweet taste of freedom. Pepsi can only watch all this unfold from the sidelines when Pepsi president. Walter MAC learns about coca Cola's military deals, he asked the Pentagon of Pepsi can get involved too MAC. We don't need Pepsi. We've already got Coca-Cola. That's the drink, the troops wine. We don't need the hassle of two cola companies fighting over shipping space. Coca Cola is winning the loyalty of millions of US troops around the world troops who will one day return home as committed Coca Cola drinkers, Pepsi finds its market trapped on the home front, wherever tighter sugar quotas are slowly squeezing the life out of the company. Pepsi is losing the gains it made before the war. MAC knows he has to score a source of sugar or Pepsi will fade away. So he does the only thing he can do. He plays dirty.
