Boston Dynamics has a new robot

"It might remember that. Robots spot the one. That kind of looks like a dog. Yeah pretty freaky looking contraption and blew up the internet a little bit too. Yeah definitely so the company behind it. Boston dynamics just announced their latest robot. It's likely not as creepy in his weirdest spot. It's called stretch. And it was designed to work. In warehouses and fulfillment centers stretch features a small omni directional mobile base. A custom designed lightweight arm in a gripper with advanced sensing and controls to handle a variety of packages. There's a video of this in action which you can watch on tech dot usa today dot com and you can actually see how it works. It picks up. Different boxes of varying sizes moves them different places. It actually opens up a box. There's one part which is kind of weird where they the stretch actually grabs one of those spot- robots the dog looking one and picks it up out of a box and then the legs popout which kind of scary. But anyway. But anyway mike it gets to this though it points to a future where we're gonna see a lot more tasks in the workplace and beyond that are automated thanks to robots. Yeah i watched that video and it's really cool. It puts an another point that actually puts in place a conveyor belt. That isn't there and then moves it to the right spot and empties. What looks like a boxcar boxes on that conveyor belt shootout wherever. It's go next. And like you said. I could see where the development of robots stretch you know. Make sense Robots can work any shift. And they don't get injured with a sore back from listen to me box right but the possible downside is this means more jobs possibly dispirit for people so there's some give and take there you know i mean i can see there's almost always got to be a human element but it could be done remotely watching a bunch of cameras because you've got. I saw. It picks up a box if someone didn't pie. Pack that bucks properly and it comes undone you've got stuff flying everywhere so somebody's gotta be prepared to take care of that. But very futuristic. I can see couples like amazon and walmart. You know costco's and places like that definitely in the market for stretch.

'Dedicated' ravens stealing groceries from Alaska Costco

"Costco shoppers and Anchorage, Alaska say they're being blindsided by Ravens who hang out in the parking lot waiting to picket people's packages. The birds are making off with food in the store parking lot, according to shoppers. One man told the Anchorage Daily News that two Ravens struck fast while he was packing his groceries in the car. He told the newspaper he was just 10 steps away when the birds came down and pluck the short rib from the card. When he got home, he noticed one of the birds actually pulled through the packaging of another rib. Lucky for him. He got Costco to take it back and got another one. The Ravens stealing as much a topic of conversation from other people on community Facebook pages, But the manager of the Costco didn't

Despite Delivery Service Concerns, Instacart Doubles Valuation Again

"If you feel like you've been throwing a lot of money grocery delivery services of late. You're not the only one instacart just got well. Many cartfuls of money from its existing investors. This latest round of funding marks the second time the company has doubled its valuation since the beginning of the pandemic instacart is now estimated at a whopping forty billion dollars. Not hard to figure out. Why investors are betting on the service. Instacart was a lifeline. For many when everything started shutting down because of the covid nineteen pandemic the service was away from any to avoid going to the grocery store and the inherent risk of that formerly mundane chore and others got hooked on the convenience of it all. Why go to the store when you could just order up the groceries on your phone and have them delivered to your house within a couple of hours before those benefits consumers were willing to pay quite the premium instacart charges as much as nine dollars per delivery or you can pay one hundred bucks a year for unlimited free delivery on top of that grocers pay ten percent per order which is no small amount in an industry where margins usually average two percent or less according to forbes grocers like acne costco wegman's and others have formed instacart partnerships even kerfuffle over the service firing employees. Who wanted to unionize wasn't enough to stop this carts momentum speculation about the company going public and when is swirling with one reuters reports saying instacart might even avoid a traditional ipo an opt for direct listing in which companies go public without raising money through a stock sale but going public is always a bed of roses just ask competitor jordache which went through an ipo in december. Even though the company has agreements with mega retailers. Like seven eleven and cbs. In addition to its restaurant partners and beat its fourth quarter revenue estimates to boot jordache stock dropped because of its big losses due to ipo costs and stock related compensation according to cnbc citron research called door dashes ipo. Quote the most ridiculous of twenty twenty and said the stock was not worth a fraction of its price. The main concern about the valuations around these delivery. Service companies is. What happens after the pandemic with vaccinations. Well underway hopeful new. Cdc guideline saying that we can hug mom and dad again with caution will consumers still be willing to pay more for convenience on a recent earnings call. Jordache leaders reported still seeing growth in areas where covid restrictions have been eased a hopeful sign for the future at instacart the companies using its windfall to secure deals with a broader retail base. It has recently struck deals with big lots staples and walgreens to name a few. So even if you do wanna head back to the store to pick out your own meat and produce you just might keep turning to the delivery service to bring you that.

Motorsport Games CEO on Going Public, Growth of SimRacing as Esports Genre

"Hello and welcome into another episode of the E Sports Network podcast home ownership with Reuters. As always. I'm your host my dreams. And today we're talking to Motorsport games CEO Dimitri Costco. Once again, you remember Dimitri from our episode recorded off summer talking about Lamont Dimitri. Welcome back to the show. Thanks, man. Child was a pleasure to speak to you. I'm so happy to have you back for people who miss that first episode merseburg games is a leading developer publisher a t Sports ecosystem creator for titles like NASCAR Lamont and more r a c e Sports had a massive explosion back in Spring as they were the first sports him to get virtual competitions running after the Sportage. No doubt. They were also the most popular NASCAR events consistently do over 1 million viewers on linear TV a mark very few if any Esports competitions have ever reached in January motor sport games with live on NASDAQ. Be trading under the ticker msgm the company opened up for trading in a share price of $20 and climbed all the way up to 35 on the day of the IPO. The stock is currently trading for a price of about $27 as I look at it off Wednesday, February 21st on the show. We're going to be talking about y r a c e Sports have worked out so well by now made sense to take the company public and how they'll affect the company's goals going forward, but first to meet you you took me on this, so I want to make sure this is clear to the audience as well. What is the difference between iRacing and what motor sport games does sure. Thank thanks so much for bringing that up. I think it is an important differentiation to put out there. So I racing is a is a great platform somebody we will regard but they are very very different than what motor sport games does home. So I racing is essentially not really a video game. It's it's more of a training simulation a lot of drivers professional drivers on their downtime wage. Not actually racing they're brushing up their skills using this type of simulation. So this is not a game that has essentially licensed content. This is not the game where all skill levels are welcome. So I racing is is literally easiest way to put it is is a training simulation. If you're trying to become a driver learn a track and so on Motorsport games focuses on all skill levels, right? We're not just on gaming PCs. We are on regular PCS on consoles on a mobile. So that means we are the official games for example for NASCAR. So when you do go to your local store and you pick up a NASCAR brand the game that's motor sport games. That is something that we're putting out their accessible to all skill levels of all ages. All our games are rated E, and I think important differentiation between a In something that's accessible to all versus something that's accessible to something to train on is that the equipment that you use right training simulation you need steering. Will you need pedal you need a seat you need all types of stuff you need to do a set-up of it as you get going. When you pick up a motor sport games game, you literally just either download it on your Xbox or put it this and you play station and just run on a on a controller have fun with your family. Right? It's more of a fun type of mass-market product compared to something that that folks used as a as a serious training tool. So I would say that that's the quickest differentiation and there's a bunch more that we could get into if you like them. I think that makes a lot of sense. I see those two complained that I was even complaining about. I tell you told me hey, this is what this is. And here's what we do. Yeah, basically sound of the difference of like this is what a tech goalie simulator looks like it menus offices versus here's FIFA so a big difference there when you really break it down exactly exactly and and I told the different stories right our products bring out kind of the soul of the of let's keep using NASCAR just for for example, right so we focus on life on gameplay environment the things that surround you as you race, right, so it's not more than just going on a track and replicating, you know, proper physics and things like that. That's what training simulations for ours as you go out there on the track you have fun before you get on the track you experience what Nascar world is like write something that off. Training simulation platforms don't focus on don't care for cuz they really only focus on bettering driving skills. We don't focus on bettering driving skills. We're focused on bringing fun to the masses them for the gameplay is is actually different there for the surrounding environment is very different. Therefore. We're available on all types of platforms including mobile, right? You're not necessarily going to get a better driver by driving the racing game in Mobile. So

"For the past six and a half years more or less weekly museum. People gather on twitter for something called museum our together. These people form a peer to peer community supporting discussion and debate between those who work in enjoy and challenge museums society. That's the beauty of museum. Our is entirely independent. It is not an organization is just about holding a space so other people can talk with each other. This is dr to meena car who co-founded museum our back in october. Twenty fourteen gosper also founded the curatorial research center. Hello my name is to mean a costco. And i am the director and curator of the curatorial research center and that's an organization. I started back in two thousand eighteen very much to support fellow curator's from around the world and also to make progress in modernizing curatorial practice this month gosper officially steps back from her role in museum. Our i wanted this to serve as both exit interview and a chance to highlight other projects that she has founded based on her curatorial. Philosophies museum i started can october two thousand fourteen sophie balancer. Who was the co founder with me got together over twitter. We've never met in real life. Goodness knows whether we ever will. Sophie was based up in the north of england. I'm based in the far west of cornwall. That we both decided we'd give the idea of the discussion based hours that were kind of finding their feet on twitter at that time so we decided to give it a go and it's grown and grown and grown and changed a lot since then of course twitches also changed hugely in terms of who participates. Who feels confident about speaking out. Who likes in the background. There is a lot of polarization on the platform. Now and so we've changed adapted museum iowa to all of those trends that we've seen happen including it's growing politicize ation as well. If i'm being honest i've kind of treated the whole thing. Even six and a half years own as an ongoing experiment in trying to understand how it is people like to communicate with each other and how it is that you can provide some kind of support for this peer to pay contact is what we're really after on museum archipelago. We look at museums as a medium and twitter is also a medium one that has changed since museum. Our started six and a half years ago since then. Twitter has shifted from a simple subscriber model. One we you see all the tweets from the people you follow the order that they tweeted to a system that uses algorithms that optimize for other factors such as engagement with the tweets. This can make a global conversation about museums. Difficult with the change in. How twitter is managed. And how the concept of driving engagement and algorithms are dictating. What we see on our timelines. There has absolutely been an impact on museum our because of that. We've got to work much harder to try and get ideas for topics for example people's ideas out to as broad an interested audience participation group that we can and that has proven very difficult in fact particularly of late because people's timelines also manipulated by twitter's algorithms and because they're so much more noise on twitter than there was so. I'm kind of glad that museum. Our has managed to hold its own. It retains a light structure. It does support those intimate conversations as well as supporting bigger thoughts and opinions and even ones that people disagree about in one space. I've participated in even hosted a few museum hours. And the thing that reminds me of the most is a museum conference or at least the conversations that you might have at museum conference which is yet another medium but interestingly docker says that museum our has never been about recreating that experience. That certainly isn't the kind of experience you usually get unless you Fortunate enough to be able to afford to go to very expensive. Large international museum conferences. For example like the newseum association conference in the uk or any of items conferences but we've never really perceived if museum hours to fill that kind of gap with still kind of exploring what it is that we think we're doing and that's just by way of being very honest about no having an agenda and letting sort of the emergent process of museum our happened

Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?

Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?

"So first of all. Let's talk about how you get money in the first place and that is earn it right and according to the pew research center Women earned eighty five percent of what men earned in two thousand eighteen That pay gap is shrinking Particularly for younger workers which is a positive trend but that is still a meaningful hurdle to overcome. The pay. Gap is partly due to to work history. You know like having kids great you know. But as we mentioned with the fidelity study earlier taking time off to have quetta's like it often leads to job offers in worse income prospects not to mention the years of not generating any income which often reflects years of not investing in a workplace retirement account in particular. If there's a match there right and those are some big disadvantages to overcome yell like you said at the beginning matt that stat also reflects some structural issues when it comes to male and female pay. But here's another thing to matt When we're talking about pay women are actually often averse to asking for more money than their male counterparts. There was a survey from ron saad. Last year the found that sixty percent of women have never negotiated with employer. Overpay women are also more likely to stay at a lower wage job to according to The personal finance web site the balance. And that's not good right because even just a small bump in pay with a new employer or in a job that been in for years can have just a massive impact on your ability to earn more throughout the years and then also save more for retirement. So i think of all of the things in this episode where we see. Maybe you know women as sex falling short. It is in in the ability to ask for more at knowing what they're worth again. This is another instance where you might be listening and you're thinking i've never had a problem negotiating a race like i've never had a problem asking for more money so again. It's important to keep in mind that though the research shows us like we know any totally doesn't apply to everyone. I'm specifically thinking of two conversations with Kirstin and julian saunders. The couple behind rich and regular that was episode. Eighty six and julianne was just bragging. About how great pearson is at negotiating. Evidently she's just like the queen negotiating more. Pay if you had to listen to that upset go back and listen to that one. Is that regardless of your gender. Earning more it's just so important right and all of us could stand to our abilities on that front And we've had lots of different conversations on the show that specifically cover you know not just stories of individuals negotiating but just how to go about doing that. I'm of Ramiz sadie that was Backing up said one ten and he outlined a great process a great method You know when it comes to wanting to up your salary. You know what steps you need to take. In order to negotiate a solid race gam thinking to matt had far new darabi on the show. She is just awesome personal finance expert and at the same time. She is someone who has made a killing as a small business owner. She knows her worth. she knows. how to negotiate. Yes so like you said there are many women out. there are crushing it. Who don't have a problem and asking for what they're worth. Who don't have a problem asking for a raise. It's just when you read those statistics. There are obviously a number of women who do though. And i wanna see. That number changed for the benefit of women as a whole absolutely. Let's about spending to do women spend more. That's an interesting question. My wife personally met hates to shop. I really. She just defies the stereotypes. And actually i don't know i don't mind shopping. A little bit roles are a little bit reverse exactly but there was a study by the wharton school of business that found that women are more likely to view shopping as a recreational activity. My mom definitely fits that bill Most men wanna leave the store with their purchases quickly as possible but even though women enjoy shopping more it turns out men still spend more than women in a typical year so while men might not enjoy the process of shopping as much. They still shopping. Just from a utilitarian standpoint sure yeah also that increase spending with the stats as well. There's there's a survey from wallet hub earlier this year. They showed that men are more likely to max out a credit card. Women are apparently seven percent less likely than men to have maxed out credit card at least once in so while women they might enjoy the shopping experience. More than men do a lot of different stats. Show that women are more cost conscious. They're more likely to shop at alice. Stores more likely to to wait till something they want is actually on sale The store brands more than men. And so you know when it comes to spending this this is definitely a win in this category for sure And so i i of see this as a call to min to stop spending so much money on neighboring items fan. Yeah i feel like. I'm totally guilty of this. I totally fall into the study. I don't like to go looking for the best deal. I do because i'm spending less but like i'll look at maybe two or three different sites and then i just purchase right whereas for you like i feel you are so good at hunting and making sure you're keeping your eyes on the best deals out there making sure that you're spending the the least amount of money possible. I feel that's something that we all need to make sure that we're doing right. And so you know regardless of who you are. We should all work to just become a little more conscious and how it is that we spend our money. I gotta say mets. I don't care whether you're man or woman but store brands should be high on your list because they're going to save you a ton of money it's just like in savings when you go for the storebrand over the name brand equivalent unless it's your craft beer equivalent And you're wanting to spend a little bit more on the because it makes you feel nice. Can't name brand everything though. I think i think sometimes that's a tendency here. Maybe that men have The men just gravitate towards the name brand no matter what it is without thinking about it and that's where we need to shake things up right and we we need to consider storebrand's more frequently also too. I think we've talked about this. The quality of store brand items has gone up a whole lot in recent years. Her kirkland signature brag. There's other ones too man. Like target has some great Store brands that are better than their name brand equivalent. Sometimes so yeah. It's not just costco yeah costco rockstar Let's see let's talk about saving as well. There's more good news here. It turns out that the the savings rate for women is actually higher than their male counterparts. They save a higher percentage of their pay. They spend less of what they bring in and much of. That is due to the more frugal. Tendencies that we just highlighted when we talked about spending differences but even the women are saving a higher percentage of their income on average. They've actually got less than thirty percent of what men have in savings accounts according to data from the federal reserve from a few years ago That is likely due to the fact that overall they're still making less like we discussed earlier which means a smaller amounts of money saved overall. Yeah one of the reasons. Women have a higher savings rate as well Is that according to a survey by. Us bank women of all ages value financial security more than men do. But here's the thing than that. Focus on financial. Security can often backfire. If you keep more of your overall assets and savings and cds instead of invested in the stock market right like savings for saving for long-term goals is really important but so is investing For the really long

You are not the lowest common denominator

"Warehouse members and as such every month. We get a magazine now. Several years ago this costco magazine was the only magazine. I read cover to cover. The articles were brilliant in depth filled with great information and advice and then a couple of years ago. They made an announcement that they were changing the focus of the magazine and change a lot of the staff. Unfortunately in my opinion the quality of the magazine went downhill. The articles just art that dynamic not helpful and recently there was the magazine the issue that had a couple of different articles. That really clarified for me. What i think their problem is why. I'm not drawn to this magazine into the articles. This particular issue had two different articles one on leaders which of course i'm going to be drawn to and another one on setting up your home gym which is obviously very pertinent for the times that were in sight. Read these articles. Evidently i still read the magazine almost from cover to cover. Like i used to because they still have something inside me that just says oh there's gotta be good stuff in here. There was for so many years. So i think i'm a die hard loyal fan. That just can't give it up so yes. I read these articles. What i found in both of these articles and probably some of the other ones that i didn't necessarily read thoroughly was that they are writing to the lowest common denominator. And that's what it felt like. It felt like some of the advice in some of the information they were talking about was really common sense that most people would know this and it would only be that lowest common denominator. That wouldn't some examples so in this article on leadership and how you can be successful as a leader without feeling like you have to be perfect. Some of the advice was you. Don't have to expect yourself to never make a mistake or as a leader. You don't have to expect yourself to know everything and as a leader. You don't have to try to be perfect because that must mean you're not sharp now. My work involves a lot about leadership. It's what we consult on and train on. We work with leadership teams in organizations helping them be better leaders through communication engagement feedback processes. And this just felt like. How will this article help anyone. If you are a leader in an organization any organization whether that is your company or it is your volunteer organization. It's a networking organization. It's the pta. whatever it is. How is this article actually going to help you. And the article on setting up your home. Gym fell very similar. their tips were determine. Your goals create a budget by the right equipment. I'm sorry if i'm setting up my home. Gem isn't all of that already the process. I'm going through. So is this article really for the person who is on the verge or getting ready to or is already in the middle of setting up their home gym or is it for that lowest common denominator audience of someone who might be some day in the far future.

And that's where our christmas stuff. And i'm like and that was the case. Then it will be so much easier to get that stuff alibaba but in reality this is my house. This is what i have. That's the space that i have and that stuff is accessible because it is an event to bring that stuff down what i don't use my attic four or are things that i know. I'm going to need. But i don't know what i'm going to need it like. Here's what i picture and you guys can tell me. I'm wrong but like i picture new england having an attic where you can actually stand up in it and like its its own door and you go into it or it has special stairs. No ours is like you poll there. There's this square thing in the ceiling. We've got one In the hallway next to the master bedroom and the kitchen and then we have one. That's in the garage and so there are these two different things. And it's got this cord hanging down and you pull on it and it makes this. Very distinct squeak. Okay and then. It has a ladder. That's like folded up onto that door and you like don't don't that latter day on and then it's sturdy but it doesn't look sturdy anyway and then you climb up into the attic in the attic. One of the reasons. We can do christmas stuff up. There is because at christmas time you can actually in the attic and in the summer in texas. It is like it's horrible up there. The heat is unbelievable in the attic in the summer. So you can't put anything out there that could melt or anything like that but you know and then there are boards across a few places in the attic. That are right. just right inside That that little thing when you go up on this ladder and have to pull things down but you can't just walk around in the attic First of all. It's not tall enough in most places and second of all there's just installation and so there are certain places where they're boards on top of that installation to give you a little bit of storage but it is not this like being dusty is not the issue with the attic okay so but it's accessible for what we store up there but that accent that level of accessibility is a big part of what determines what can be stored up there which is helpful to me because i know it's not just every random thing go put in the attic because it is a huge pain to go up there and i i have been there maybe twice in fifteen years but i please don't be offended when i say this. It's really just one of those things that i choose like a mike. If my husband is willing to believe that that's the man's job to go up there. Of course i could do it. Y'all but if he's willing to believe the man's job to go up there then i am not going to argue with kinda like willing to believe that it's his job to take out the trash which he is amazing at and i'm so thankful for Yeah i've never going to argue with that. Like why would i argue that anyway. So he goes up there. He gets the stuff day on and it is kind of hard to get things down out of that. Not that i couldn't do it. But you know what i mean but it might determine how heavy things can be. You know how big things can be our christmas tree box. We had a new christmas tree at costco last year. Which i love but it is right at the edge of being too big for our house because it's too big to fit in the attic. Okay and that so. We're probably going to buy one of those christmas tree bags. I don't know. I shouldn't say probably i because when i say there's something i'm going to do. I try to avoid that okay. i'll just admit it. I bought those pillow covers. I think i said last time that we were gonna sit down on has a family and decorate them. It didn't happen now. It's still might happen. And i hope it does. There's also a chance that somebody is going to be thrilled at the thrift store to find brand new pillow covers and anyway But yeah so. That's why. When i said it i went. I'm really going to do that. And then i thought dana you know better. You know better you. I always try to tell you guys things after. I did it not in my plans because i've

Amazon opens online pharmacy that delivers prescriptions

"Amazon launching an online pharmacy customers will be able to buy prescription medications through a new store on its platform code amazon pharmacy. So now when you're at the doctor you can ask them to send prescriptions to amazon pharmacy. Just like any other retail pharmacy. Like you did before. It accepts quote unquote. Most insurance plans poll amazon launching. An online pharmacy was the points. What could possibly go wrong. There are two aspects of the recode article that used santos marcus that i thought were interesting. One is the fact that a lot of things that we didn't anticipate buying through amazon. Now we do so routinely. So i think that bodes well for prescription drugs being part of that but the other part that concerns me quite a bit is the just the number of knockoffs and how unregulated the amazon marketplace. Seems to be at times mock I would never bet against amazon in anything possible. Hitch in this. Is that the prescription. Drug markets skews toward older consumers. They they're the ones who who need this stuff more and that on average somewhat less comfortable with ecommerce younger people had the a lot of The pandemic learn to deal the e. Oh so that that's favor. But i'd be astonished if this flops blake yet had mark's got it exactly right. It's sort of the logical next step for amazon. Now that the pandemic has gotten older generations. Used to shopping for essentials online so sort of the next step beyond grocery in every other day household essentials and this is the age group that they're going to need if they want this to be successful so i think the time is right. Context on this story is comes about two years after amazon com susan company pill pack for seven hundred million dollars is also made other moves into the health space. Health insurance space amazon. Berkshire hathaway and j. p. morgan chase in twenty. Eighteen launched a joint health care venture code haven. We've yet to see where that's going to go. I'm was prime. Members will of course be able to save money paying for medications generic and off brands without using health insurance which is interesting. that's just chace took hit following the news. Drugstore companies like cvs and drug distributors like cardinal health. This will no doubt as well as vice out of walmart target costco's pharmacy businesses to joe this album praying and sharon tell up the wall street journal noting quote. Most americans still prescriptions at the traditional drugstore. Us prescription drug sales at pharmacies was over three hundred billion dollars in two thousand eighteen coins health research firm. A via nearly four billion prescriptions filled each year in the us in march. Mail order prescriptions. Mail order prescriptions. Were up twenty one percent from the previous giving them a six percent slice of the prescription drug market. Hi shannon lost two years. According to suntrust robinson humphrey. Wasn't there a time not long ago when there were a lot of rumors about amazon getting into not the prescription drug business but healthcare coverage insurance coverage. Am i imagining that. Or i might be the time with the two companies haven joint venture with halfway and j. p. morgan chase. So they got together to basically trying to put together some kind of umbrella coverage for all three companies. And somehow i pulled on everybody's sources provide coverage for all of their employees. I think that might be the thing. Maybe i i guess. I was on the impression that it was more comprehensive than just those companies and that they were basically going to try to roll out like you know obamacare. You know amazon care but yeah whether they were going to roll the roll that out to other companies as some kind of a model yet to be seen but i think with their own folks

COVID-19 cases surge across US

COVID-19 cases surge across US

"That. Let's talk about the latest on these numbers and the surge across the country as we bring in Wi OD National Court. Spawned that Michael Bauer. You could follow him on Twitter at the Bower show. Good morning, Michael. Good morning, Maddie. Yeah, I hadn't thought about the making fun of Dr Fauci part, but I definitely member the Pearl clutching that one time when we crested that 100,000 Day mark, and now we have added a million cases just over the past week alone. And if you do the math on that, just 13 days of over 100,000 new cases a day will simply add that up very easily. So that's where we are. Yesterday. We crested 133,000 new coronavirus cases. We're now up to 11/11 million cases in this country and that last million coming over the past week. This is an alarming acceleration and spread. Yeah, we're seeing I mean, look, it's the spread is everywhere. It's not you have used to be. We go. Hey, Manny, where the hot spots in this country? No, no, The country is the hot spot. Yeah, There's no question about it. You're starting to see some. Even North Dakota, whose governor, throughout this entire thing has refused to order mass mandate has now ordered a mask mandate. Ask people to wear the mask everywhere indoors and you're certain you're starting to see other restrictions. The city of Chicago, the state Of Michigan and elsewhere because it is literally spreading uncontrollably and much of the country. You got 70,000 people in U. S hospitals being treated for severe cases of covert 19 Let that sink in 70,000 people in U. S hospitals being treated. That's more than we've ever had going back even to win. This thing kicked off in March more so when we had that when we had the Sunbelt States infections That's the kind of numbers we're looking at here. The overwhelming hospitals is going on right now, right under our noses. We're trying to figure out who the next president is going to be or what the lawsuit that the president has filed is going to look like There are overwhelming hospital bed scenes. There are numbers of in some cases hospital losing 30% of their staff to Cove It like literally having them either have to quarantine or they're in ICU right now. Not doing well because they have caught Cove in 19 those of the kinds of overwhelming numbers we're looking about, and that's the key here. 38 different states reporting more than 1000 new cases on Saturday. And this surge is deadly. That's the big thing here. We haven't seen those death numbers climb just yet. But that's not the way the pacing works. Pacing goes infection than you have hospitalizations. Then you have the death numbers coming through and we're hearing Zero from the federal government. We're hearing zero from the coronavirus task force that President Trump set up. We're hearing it's been five months or more. Since President Trump has been a part of any of those meetings, which is why Michigan Washington The state of Washington, laid out a slew of new rules prohibiting indoor social gatherings and dining. We're seeing that in places like New York, Connecticut, Minnesota and New Jersey. They've all got curfews and play. New Mexico banned in person services for non essential workers. Maryland ordered restaurants to reduce indoor dining by 50% in Oregon is just saying we're cutting out restaurant dining altogether. We're putting it on pause with all of this. That's because we're not hearing anything, and the country is looking at this states are looking at this watching their numbers grown going. We've got to do something, and we're hearing absolutely nothing on the higher level right now. Yeah, yeah. I mean, it seemed like a lifetime ago that President Trump said that he declared himself a wartime president because the country was at war against this virus. I guess he got tired of because he hasn't met with his generals or anybody else. You also remember a lot of people saying this whole thing this this pandemic this corona virus thing on November 4th. It was going to be over the media wasn't going to talk about it anymore. It wasn't going to exist. Nobody was going to get sick. Turns out that wasn't true, either. Well, and there was a part of that. That seems like a pretty self fulfilling prophecy from President Trump like and on November 4. They're going to stop talking about it because all we're gonna talk about it in the election because all we're going to care about is what states did somebody win and where the lawsuits coming from, So I guess, theoretically, that's true. And while that's all happening The numbers are growing exponentially, and that the health experts are very concerned that Dr Fauci said yesterday that when you start to look at what's going on here, the fact that President elect Joe Biden's transition team is not getting any information on national security or coronavirus cases. We're gonna have a massive gap here before anything gets an opportunity. To be done even before you get to look at a possible vaccine being on the market on some level those air very large cases that could become overwhelming. We could get up to 200,000 cases a day 250. What's the number? That's going to shock Americans into thinking they should wear masks and socially distance Because so far the policy of play has been. Hey, we trust the American people to do what they need to do. If they feel that they need to be safe and wear a mask, they'll do it. How's that working out for us? That's not going particularly well right now. So until something comes from the higher ups and work its way down, and then works in unison with what states are seeing because of tests, and they're seeing a rise in positivity here, there where they can kind of shut down little areas of the state and go into quarantine. That's when we get control over it. Right now. We are so far from control that the light from control take 10,000 years to reach in, and you're starting to see where we're going backwards. I mean that you're starting to see now what is that? Wal Mart is now star. Eating the count customers coming into their stores. That's a national mandate like company. Now you're seeing other stores, Costco has changed their mass policy. Everyone has. First of all. Costco had this policy that if you had health problems, you could wear a face shield. It's been proven that there's no health problem that would preclude you from wearing a mask. To begin with. It's a good 117 days now, since World Health Organization declared this thing a pandemic. You remember that second Thursday in March? We're all of a sudden you walked into the grocery store. There's no toilet paper. There's no lice off 117 days we've been dealing with and every single expert tells us you know we can control this. If we just do the little things where the mass wash your hands stay socially mistaken 1170.2 countries that have done exactly that that have seen that taken control and in the meantime, we're in 36 states now that have mandated the wearing a face masks in public. That should and probably will grow. But what's going to have to happen between then and now? That's the big question. And what is something like if you've got 36, which is clearly the majority of states that are calling for that mask mandate? What happened if you had the whole country in the masked man it What would that theoretically do to us other than possibly slow this thing down a little bit? Keep the economy like that's it? Yeah. Michael, I was a pleasure. We will talk tomorrow morning, sir. You gotta stay safe.

"I mean. It's that restaurateurs. Are they getting? Are THEY SHOPPING COSTCO? You know it's funny. You ask that because the the original premise of costco was supposed to be kind of this B. Two B. Model that sold to other restaurant tours and Food operators a goes all the way back to the fifties with SOA price who started this store called Fed Mart which eventually became the price club. One of his employees was Jim Senegal. He broke off and started costco but over time they realize this business to business model selling restaurant. Tours wasn't working. The business only really worked when they opened it up to individual people who kind of had this sudden novelty of going in and seeing these crates for themselves. It's a great question. Who The hell buys the seventy two pounds of cheese right? I don't actually know I've never seen any I`Ma Costco customer myself. I go in there. God knows he buys that but someone does out there and They have incentive to sell anything on their shelf because they're incredibly selective about what they do sell so this is a bit like trader. Joe's right they have a very low number of skews that actual items that they say. Oh yes so average supermarket. You're looking at forty or fifty thousand SKEWS WALMART. You're looking at one. Hundred thousand. Costco has thirty seven hundred skews. They're incredibly selective very small number of items relatively you know in any given category. You're going to have one or two selections rather than like fifteen or twenty. It's very low skew. Very high volume. So you know you're not gonNA buy one jar of tomato sauce. You're going to buy a six pack. You're going to buy a four pack of toilet paper you know seven pound. Tub of new Tele. That's the kind of all we're talking about here but it does raise the question. No if they only have three and a half thousand skews and each one is very carefully. Paik town because you know they've managed to negotiate some great deal with the manufacturer and they know that hits the sweet spot how on Earth they managed wind up with seventy two pound wheel of Parmesan. Like it's like is that really in the top three and a half thousand things that anyone wants. That's a great question. I mean someone out. There is buying these seven pound type of Miss Hellas in. A lot of a lot of big families will stock up. I I think one interesting thing you just raised. Is You know right? Now if corona virus all of all this panic buying. We're seeing the costco to some small level. I don't WANNA say they're contributing to that but the by design they are stockpiling store in some small way right like a family is going to go in there. Maybe once a and by enough rations to last a month you know the the prepping community for instance loves COSTCO COSTCO. Once at one time sold a six thousand dollar Doomsday Kit That gave you rations. That would last four years dehydrated meats and such so if you go on these doomsday communities like these bunker communities Very active right now online.

"Is a relatively small proportion of of the Costco customers at large most. Tosto customers our families who buy these big bulk orders or just people in the suburbs stocking up on stuff you see. These retail arbitrage guys going in and buying big bulk packages of stuff and reselling it on Amazon for a prophet. And you also see You know the doomsday community. Going full scale on on their Costco binges lately buying out the toilet paper aisle and so forth. But I think that's actually a a relatively small portion. What's going on right now because this is one of the things which I find super fascinating about Costco which you are an expert in and which is one of the most amazing businesses in America is that people don't go there very often. The whole business model is basically that you have some monster suburban SUV tank type vehicle and you drive it into the parking lot of Costco. And then you go and you do. Some massive shopping by pallets live goods. And then you load them into your in the SUV. Oyo Pickup truck or whatever and you drive them into your four car garage and you just let them sit there and you can basically live off your garage for the next three months until you have to rinse and repeat If I got that right because I mean I live in Manhattan. I don't really understand this. So that's pretty much it. I mean the first thing you have to understand is most of these stores are in suburban areas. The average Costco Shopper is a pretty well off like we're talking like hundred K. so for discount store. That's that's pretty high and you know you have to have the space to store this stuff like you said but very much by design the average Costco Shopper. Probably only goes in once a month. Compared to the average supermarket shopper goes in once a week so That is very much by design That also comes with an economic benefit to Costco. You know the less a customer has to go shop. That's less resources for the store. Less restocking resources less cashier resources less people taking up space in the parking lots to some more efficient operation which is very court their model. It is super efficient right in typical supermarket. They you know a pallet of goods will come in and they will spend a huge amount of effort unpacking everything and so everyone can buy these bottles of shampoo individually or something and then at Costco People. I'll just buy a dozen bottles of shampoo at a time and then I'd know who thinks that it makes sense to buy a dozen bottles temperature time but people do that right. Yeah I mean look like you walk into one of these stores and it's it's really the the anti store in every way it's like the ugliest place in the world you have these bare concrete floors. There's no sign edge us. There's these giant pallets. There's forklift operators by you as you're buying your rotisserie chicken you know. And actually shockingly. It's actually expensive for Costco. Design their stores that way. It costs about eighty million dollars per store just because they're so large but all of this minimal operation. It's both by design it. Ultimately bitstream is the operations makes things a little bit cheaper for consumers. But it's also kind of just experiential in this weird way but I was wondering about that like how much of that is theater. How much of that is is is like putting on a show of being cheap as opposed to actually being efficient. Some of it is absolutely a show. Costco is is some weird form of capitalistic theater. In in some ways it's Jim Senegal the founder and CEO Of Costco who stepped down. Twenty twelve has admitted as much but to be fair. Some of it is practical and operational avid say. Actually most of it is bringing things. In on the Palate by forklift reduces the the backlog of stuff they have in in storerooms? It reduces touch costs which essentially. There's this idea in retail that anytime an employee has to touch a good adds to the cost and cost very low touch costs. It's coming straight off the truck in basically going right into the store. There's no fancy displays that you might see in whole foods. There's no stocking little cans on shelves. You see what you get and they have a bunch of like super high end steaks. Lobsters thousand dollars bottles of wine and that kind of stuff as well right they trying to be all things will people. Yeah I mean you can walk into a Costco and you can buy an eighteen karat white gold diamond necklace for five hundred thousand dollars. You can buy a seventy two pound wheel of.

And don't buy anything that anybody tells you is going to jeer or prevent the corona virus that you don't get from the CDC is basically the best advice writer. You'RE GONNA see a lot of emails about a supposed of vaccines that people have already that pronouncing time so the other ones We're seeing our Calls for donations. So fake red crosses those sorts of things We're seeing someone. Put up a fake version of Johns Hopkins. Heat Map Now Yep so when you go to that you get yourself a little I forget what you get an email. Download something to your machine. That is bad. The allows you to exfiltrated wear. Yeah exactly But it looks just like the Johns Hopkins Heat Map. Which is you if you hadn't if you have not yet checked out is excellent. The Actual Johns Hopkins. One is one of the best out there So you have that sort of thing And absolutely we're seeing fishing already Just taking care taking advantage of people's anxiety near ear. Yep Yep Interesting comment I saw swinging back to The president's speech about all this someone on twitter said the soothing parts weren't true and the true parts weren't soothing. Yeah it's funny. The my favorite tweet about it was This guy said my daughter is learning final cut pro and she just made a video of Donald. Trump's labored breathing during During the speech in I couldn't be more proud. Yeah I did. That was uncomfortable in many ways was uncomfortable because he didn't want to read it because he didn't believe it right. You know his. His people made him read that. And you could tell I think he brings a tooth because his jaw was clinch. So hard the only thing missing was someone holding up the front page of a newspaper so he knew that what data was when it was actually recorded like they do in those hostage video. That was the only thing missing. I was actually looking at the edges of his face to see if it was a deep fake. That's like weird and uncomfortable and I'm like is this real or is this a deep fake. Because and then he did the thing with his hands and I'm like oh no that's still him. That's still him when he had his hands clenched. You knew that he was the one reading it and then when he did the or you didn't know but when he just flipped his hands over. It's a beautiful thing we've got beautiful tested the most. Oh wait I have to get back on script. You know right right. Who's WHO's the guy behind the camera. That has the gun on him telling him to read verbatim you know. Is it the Bilderberg group right right? And it also reminds me of Just how I must remember back. When President Obama was in office? How how much. Hey the the Republicans made over him being the teleprompter president. You know that he was only he can only perform with a teleprompter. Oh what we wouldn't give to have a president with a teleprompter skills that other presidents have had just made up for him coming off Air Force One with a cup of coffee peak. For Christ's sake come on right. Yeah it's tough These are the times when he really want leadership at the top. Actually to that point I have a friend who is An expert in disaster recovery. Planning in like she. That's what she does and fire by the administration. No no I mean her. Her work Happens more at the state level but She's just apoplectic over the federal response to all this just how it every single turn from the communications to the organization just every bit of it is just the allows it of what you're trained to do and there's just no one guiding the ship. It seems knows what they're doing anyway. So we'll on how long? How long do you guys think is going to last three months personally three months? Okay well I think the grocery stores are going to be fine in three days there. We're GONNA teepee shortage. Everybody's going to be restocked. I talked to the girls today at checkout because I'm friends with all the people at my grocery store and they're like we're getting the best overtime we've ever gotten because we're all working in an one girl pulled out the tub of Clorox sanitizers wipe down the self checkout machines in her friend. She left it on the counter. Interference had put that away? Because somebody's going to steal that store But they're like you know they're they're okay with it at this point because you know people like you and me. Dave who come and coughing are pretty rare. Apparently I I still think three months for this whole thing to recover just just because of the the duration of the station of the virus. And you know the the fourteen to twenty one days people still gonNA start getting sick I'm probably going to get sick. My roommate's probably GONNA get sick. I think I think a lot of people are going to really get sick and it's going to be. I think at least three to four months. Personally I agree with Jason about the groceries for sure. I think everybody's already got everything that they possibly need to. The supply chains haven't been screwed up yet. So I'll everything's going to be restocked in the next couple days. So that's not going to be an issue anymore. I think I don't know I don't know how long people are going to be able to work from home because as we know it's very difficult. People are being very optimistic about how that's all to happen. I'd imagine within the next month will see numbers going down and I think people will start to go back to schools. Start to go back to work but I think the social aspect of it and the the repercussions of everything. We're going through right now. We're going to linger for months of linger for years. Now I think I think the economic damage that's going to be done by this is GonNa last for years Personally just because there's so many because you know Baristas can't work from home. There are a lot of people like the girls. Checkout Line can't work from home. It's there are a lot of jobs that are going to be really messed up and that comes back to what we've been talking about for the rest of the show is just like you know. Show empathy to your your local friends and not. Everybody needs to get through this together and don't be a Dick Yeah. I saw a good suggestion. Somebody said Go Online and buy a gift card for your favorite local restaurant That way they get the money. Now you'll you'll have a nice meal whenever things get better. You can go out. But it'll help them ride this storm. No one's going to the restaurant. That's a good idea. Not a bad idea. It's not a bad idea at all. Actually that's a that's a really good. It's better than my idea which was just go in and get ten bucks for the meal that you're GonNa get for the But yeah actually gift cards are. That's that's a really smart idea because yeah then you can just use it after everything goes and keep them in business right right exactly exactly leave on a good note that let's let's end on that positive all right well. Let's all cross our fingers that all three of us are able to to be back here next week right. That'll be the way it goes for the time being well. Brian are going to be here because we don't go anywhere. Well the way it works. We're we're used to this. This is this is our wheelhouse right now. Yeah that may be you but I have a family and I'm the one that goes out to do the foraging so when you have kids gathering yes yes. All things are kids. Go around yeah. The kids go roll around in the Petri dish and then come home and roll around all over everything at home. I was thinking about this. Brian has been sick so many times in the past two years or three years since he got Lucas that his immune system has to be like fucking iron man in that. This might work. I'm the one that's actually. I'm just coming off shingles so I've had a viral infection for the past month. So if anybody dies it's GonNa be me so there will be no show because nobody else knows how to record this properly. But I I know how to record right. We can start our star. Wars podcast there you go. It's the opportunity we've been looking for here on a very old geeks. Yeah Yeah that's right. That's right all right guys will Chins UP YEP MOVE. Talk to you soon. Upset seems a little weird to talk about anything. Not Corona virus related. But I did have two things in here before the proverbial fan. I saw a new three in one doc charger for your nightstand. That logitech has launched already have one. But this also includes you know the wireless charging and it looks sexy. It's really good looking. I might actually get that one. Yeah I'm considering it. It's a good Lookin' little pad and it can charge everything All at once so you can put your watch on their your phone your air pods. It's it's Nice I might grab it to at some point. Yeah the problem is is the speakers on the bottom because I use my phone at night to listen to podcasts. To keep the voices in my head at bay speakers on the bottom it might not work too well but the it. It's a good look in a little piece of Kit. Maybe I'll just get that for the office when I'm sitting here recording. 'cause that's there you go. You can keep everything charged up and you don't let it sit there. Do you have An Air POD charging case for years. No no I I have to do. A couple upgrades before. This is a complete used to me. So I gotTa tell you man when I when I got the Air POD twos remember. I didn't get the pros. I just went with the twos. Jim in I do the wireless charging those now on the same pad that one of the ones I gave you and these new airport twos. It's ridiculous it's like. I'm so used to my air pods dying in ten minutes that these these things seem to last forever. I like get three hundred three or four hours out of him and I'm like I haven't had to charge..

"costco" Discussed on Grumpy Old Geeks

"Podcast hacking humans with Joe Kerrigan as well as the CO host of caveat with Ben Yellen where they discussed law and policy as well as surveillance and privacy and we were just talking off air about how when we hit our mid forties. We both came down with allergies which we've had and in this day and age. That might get you killed. I know don't often in the streets right now. Do you know people scatter they. Just you dirty looks and you know people look at you. They they pull their children close to them and run away in. Fear so yeah. I guess we're mistrial very good very good. Yeah Yeah so how's it going over there Dave in in DC? I'm sorry Baltimore Maryland. Yeah in our offices are smack DAB right in the middle between Baltimore and Washington Most people might be familiar with Columbia Maryland. That's pretty much where are It's okay We're closing schools for two weeks Were there no more gatherings so for the time being? The governor has declared has declared a state of emergency They're going to be using the national guard to come clean things including the schools I found out to kill terrorists and all I got was his clorox. Wipe Yeah Yeah Yeah It's good that they're still keeping meals available for kids who need meals through their schools. So that's something I think is going right. but The stores have that look that they usually typically have before a blizzard where everything's kind of picked through. There's still stuff but most of the good stuff is gone and I ran up the store today just to grab something for lunch in long lines. I know I know I. There's long lines and and just I mean if people are buying giant packs of paper towels and toilet paper in all these the one place where there are large gatherings right now our grocery stores. Yeah that's right that's right so Razi Here at the cyber wire we have gone to a mandatory work from home scenario so Today I'm the one person at the studio safe there for now. There's nobody else here. So it's probably the best place to be But so fortunately we're in a situation where we can do that Really without a whole lot of impact. But this week has been we've had meetings talking about continuity plans you know. What do we do if people are unavailable or out of Commission Because really most of our plans have been around a person getting sick or you know typical type things but so In in a way that's good. Go through that exercise But I have to say it's a little disconcerting. Yeah well we really screwed this one up. Didn't we who would have thought that Gutting important government agencies would have repercussions yeah. He's a lot of this could have been avoided or it certainly could have mitigated a lot of things that are currently happening right now. Who Needs Social Safety Nets right when we have. Ai Yeah Yeah. I was thinking Through earlier this week of ood different scenarios and I wonder what would happen if ten percent of Congress died from this. You know so. Many of them are in the danger zone in terms of their age I don't think it. I don't know how realistic that would be but What would be the effect of that because I I? We talked about here many times. I think until things affect them directly. It's very difficult for them to make changes that. That may trickle down to the rest of us when it comes to many things when it comes to many things so as they all have healthcare. They do they do. But as we're seeing as we're recording this many people in Congress are self quarantining because they've been exposed and you know this is the thing that money can't really buy you immunity from Tom. Hanks got it. I mean if Tom Hanks can get it anybody. Yeah we're all screwed. Well a friend of mine who Was going down the conspiracy theory lines so much of that out. There said he said if he wanted to have somebody who who was calm. Put people at ease when it comes to getting the disease. Who'd you ask? That's right Tom. Hanks yeah so that kind of leads me into some thoughts that I've been having an and we were discussing just a little bit before. We started recording that that you know having an I mentioned this earlier in the show as well having lived through so many large events in in my life the LA riots. The earthquake here. That was so massive. Obviously nine eleven. I've never felt anything quite like this. This different And I don't really I mean obviously it's a different thing. It's it's global. It's it's something everybody has to worry about. But it feels weirder or out there than I remember anything else being and I I wonder how much of that is social media and the sped up nature of news and fake news now because nine eleven. You know you talked around the proverbial water cooler with your office people and that was about and then you didn't get any news until you went home and Tom. Brokaw came on and laid it out in thirty minutes. Now it's constant and everywhere and too fast. I beg to differ on the nine eleven thing because we had CNN on in my house. And I watch those planes go into the tower every thirty seconds and it noon created a it created a national. Ptsd now with this. There's no such event where you have that repetitive visual over and over and over again we have Sanjay Gupta saying really stupid shit. Sometimes he's like. Oh why why are you going to close Harvard? Because they're the kids are not going to be affected by this. I mean if they get it. They're going to be fine. I'm like do you know who teaches at Harvard for look through the catalog at Harvard. I mean again. It's the same thing that we've been screaming about the Anti Vaccine. It's not it's not about you stupid. It's about rather people. Yeah right so yeah to me. The the closest feeling that this matches up to is the feeling I had the days after nine. Eleven when there was this anxious uncertainty because we didn't know what was coming next. What could becoming next was going to get better was going to get worse. We're hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. I feel like that's where we are now. But you're right. There's no there was no big event where easing into this more slowly watching it sort of creep around the world and But that information is coming at a so fast on social media you're right. I think it's our planes hitting the Tower was the Donald Trump press conference because that was much of a train wreck that was a disaster and that relates directly to what you were saying Dave in those couple of days after nine. Eleven when you didn't know what was going on and there was no plan and to have our president come up and basically just tried to rebrand this thing rather than giving to pivot the virus. Well he that's what he did. He tried to pivot the virus to being an immigration thing. There was there was no plan set forth and it was so telling that both both Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden gave press conferences the very next day that put out good plans salted did I have. I have to go with you on that day. It's like when I went to the grocery store this morning and it did have that same. Feel that post nine eleven. Feel it was dead quiet. Nobody was making eye contact. Except the I as I previously mentioned in the show the couple that saw the empty P. I'll just started breaking up laughing but there was definitely a weird weird energy everywhere. Yeah I think what's making it worse. Is that for a lot of us? We do not have faith that our government has the ability to take care of things right now certainly not at the federal level I do feel much better about my state government. My local government So that's good And they're able to do a lot of things. You know I I'm I'm I'm fortunate enough to live in an area that has good healthcare systems. You know my local hospital is part of Johns Hopkins and so that's reassuring but it still doesn't mean they're not going to be overwhelmed and and you just simply won't be able to get any service. I think he got an in with Joe Kerrigan right. He works for Johns Hopkins. You can kinda get a hall pass. Yeah right exactly. I'll just go in disguised as him into the problem is Joe Kerrigan. Different deals with different types of viruses. That's right that's right exactly. Yeah here's your copy of Norton Antivirus. Please be on your way Sir. You gotta go in and do a in person podcast. When you're at the door should get. That's right that's right. That's right the thing that I notice today when I was at the store is that and this relates to the social media. Thing is that I'm really exhausted from all the small. Talk about it I'm tired I'm tired of all the all of the armchair experts I'm tired of the while pandemic just means that it's shortened. Saw Charmian pandemics happen all the time. Shot Yeah it is not helping and it's not has it. Yeah Stop Better. Watch out washing your hands without show that show was made in China. Ha ha ha ha ha ha shot Not Helping I was. I was talking to a friend yesterday. And he is like maybe we should have shut down social media instead of all the other things were shutting down and we might all be feeling a little bit better right now. Yeah Yeah I was talking to a friend earlier today. And she was saying that She basically muted all the corona virus words on twitter. Twitter basically went away. There's nothing left in her feet now. That's exactly the problem we had putting the show together. We didn't want to do a second show about the corona virus. But that's the only news that's out there is we. We were ahead of the curve again and did the last show about it now is the thing. I saw some San we. I saw someone say on twitter. That the great thing about Krona viruses. Now every podcast is a corona virus podcasts and that is true that is true. So I'm I'm wondering. What do you guys think about to get actually back on topic for a second here? The these scams that are going to start coming out. I mean we know start. They've already started that stupid people posting stupid shit. That's that's a given right. We talked about earlier with the vitamin C. Thing and all that when it comes to the scams what kind of scams do you guys think. We're going to start seeing like I buy my shit scams not just the go take phone see scale..
