People are going less or or people are hungry in that leaving the home what's happening. Well you pretty much nailed. Near description of the restaurant. Landscape is changing their seven hundred thousand thousand brick and mortar restaurants here in the u._s. And every restaurant is now faced with this challenge. It's an opportunity but it's a challenge to adapt their business for or delivery and what that means is drivers showing up to pick up food. That's placed on ordering apps like ubereats and post meets endured ash and consumer behavior is shifting and people are eating from restaurants more often but it's not always in person it's through these apps and the replacing cooking at home home with opening up grub pressing one button and having food come to the door come to their office just a more convenient way way to connect with your favorite restaurant and it's it's a challenge that canter's deli. My family's restaurant has been faced away and really in two thousand nine when the recession hit us. Our foot traffic was down ten percent. We were forced to figure out new ways to reach customers. I experimented and signed up with all these different online ordering platforms starting with grub hub in the twenty four and fourteen online ordering platforms later thirty percent of our business. Today is now on these delivery companies as a restaurant. That's open twenty four hours. A day canter's i elliott it's been been around since nineteen thirty one started by my great grandfather. Ben kanner and it's been in my family for four generations. My grandfather worked there sixty five five years. My dad pretty much dropped out of high school to take over the family business and he hasn't looked back since and his sister does the hiring and firing his cousin does the accounting really a family business and i grew up working. They're very young age as well. My job was to adapt the business just like everyone else in my family family and along the way we discovered that there's a lot of technology that we needed to bring into the business including our first point of sale sale system having a mobile friendly website just minor updates to bring it into the next generation and delivery was a big component of that but it was very very challenging as a restaurant actually operate fulfill those orders. We're messing up. Orders left and right drivers were showing up to pick up food that that hadn't even been made yet and ultimately we realized we needed a better way to plug into these revenue streams and get the order information information flowing directly into the kitchen rather than to the tablets that were in the front of the house. We had a wall of technology nine tablets laptops laptops and a fax machine just to manage all these incoming orders so you have a company called order bark. We're hearing culver city at your offices order. Mark is the piece of hardware that goes into the restaurants. Tell everybody yes so. I started order mark in january of twenty seventeen with my co founders to solve the exact problem and what we do is we built consolidation device. It's a one tablet and one printer that can go into a kitchen that takes orders from different online ordering platform standardizes the incoming data and feeds it into a single flow directly into the kitchen so today we work with thousands of restaurants nationwide from mom and pops up to very large chains like sonic subway and what we're doing is we're giving them. We're shipping them a single device that they can receive all of these different orders from anwr actually beyond consolidating the orders were plugging them in to all of the online ordering companies that are relevant and the zip code from a restaurant owner listening right now and i say that sounds great how much so this so we charge just a fixed fixed monthly fee on how many locations you have and where you're located. It's about one hundred bucks a month. Per location is where it starts and it it really allows you to receive additional orders because you're being plug into more revenue streams and most of our restaurants actually make out that one hundred bucks a month on the first day of each month alex kanter order marc canter family.

I let me ask you about these criminal charges that were brought yesterday. How important are they in the broader fight against opioid addiction? Well, if you think that to make people accountable for practices that are not correct. That actually have generated so much offering. So I do believe that we have a responsibility society to make those people that did wrong doing I recognize on. So all those kind deter from doing it again. How would you describe the Trump administration's approach to combating the opioid crisis? Because I mentioned the president talks a lot about it. But what are the actions behind those words, and how they made a different approaches multibrand abroad that have components that relate to actually providing and expanding that treatment of individuals that are suffering from my Opio choosy sorter started things to watch any change the brackets on how we handle thank on dishes on patients. So that rather than just relying on opioids we can utilize other strategies on when we need opiates for. Patients don't respond to something else. Properly.

But at the same time, the Trump administration has advocated a rollback of the Medicaid expansion the came with the Affordable Care Act which included mental health care, which Utah too many drug experts addiction experts say that's critical to helping addicts who are suffering from opioid addiction. What effect has that rollback had key component is actually providing why evidence scared to people that that is the main point. I think we argue one way or the other is not just about saying bills. He's about drug fiving care dieting, it's going to be like saving on for example. We know that medications for the treatment of future disorder the most affected intervention that we have to prevent them from overdosing and dying and did not providing these medications. So that the essence of the challenge that we have we're kind. Another important components strategies to expand Richards. So that we have new they're not treatment that can help those that don't respond classical intervention. So is not that. Sometimes we want simple solutions.

"Live from Culver city. I'm Brian done in studio with my brother, James, oats. And we're talking about that most divisive of issues abortion, but more specifically the battle lines into which this concept is being raised. Now in light of the recent vacancies on the supreme court. Many of the groups that have championed what has been dubbed the right to life have taken on a new viability new life, and for lack of better words, they are influencing the legislatures too. Do some things that are going to redefine the concepts that we're I take late in versus Wade's. Specifically, the concept of viability the internal battle that the supreme court waged in Roe versus Wade was a woman's right to privacy as as related by the fourteenth amendment to the United States constitution as weighed against the states right in that case, Texas to the to the life of the unborn. And it's kind of interesting to talk about these concepts because you're literally talking about a medical procedure that affects only one gender yet. It's almost always men that are making these decisions. And in thinking about the way that the battle lines are currently being drawn. We are seeing laws in many conservative states that are articulating the concept of viability not in terms of win. The child can can survive outside the womb. But in terms of when the child heart starts to beat and that is a concept of you know, six weeks versus twenty four. Or twenty eight weeks. Mike we were talking to you about this concept. Do you think that it should be when the child is able to survive outside the womb when the child heartbeats or something else? What do you think in your heart, Mike? Okay. I'll answer it very simply and even on Jewish just pizza may God from a Christian radio show. Sometimes Christner your excite here views on important issues. Elsewhere and the only difference between the baby and born Curson is their size their location their level development and their capability for independent living there, many people who are born who are not capable of independent living too old. They're too young their import they're sick. They have some deformity from birth even. So if we look at that point of view as a wonderful way of analyzing it, we do not allow killing or murdering people ased on their size location inside or outside. Birth canal, for example, or you're in this city that city their level of development or their capability for independent living. Very rational logical. And I do understand that. And when we're talking about rationing rational and logical thought why do you think Mike if you can articulate it because Jim, and I would just scratching our heads about this. Why is this such a divisive issue in our nation? What what is it about this particular topic that seemed to just rip us through through in terms of what side you're on? Are you on this you on that side? Why why don't you think it's that way? My very simple answer to that. The reason is it was made into a divisive issue by the democrat party as a campaign issue. So you don't have to run on real issues such as levels of taxation, blaming the dims blaming the dams. I think it's going to be more complicated pain issue. They claim this a women's right is no more woman's right to kill another person happens. It'd be inside or body or to do what she wants her own body. Then is a man's right. To rape women. Do what he wants with his body or to punch someone out and do what he wants to understand the son Mike, let me posit briefly. Folks, we want to hear what you think at one eight hundred.

Joe Biden says he never "acted inappropriately" with Lucy Flores

"We're going to start our program today with a conversation about an alleged encounter between former vice president Joe Biden and former Nevada democratic assemblywoman Lucy Flores in an article for New York magazine Flores details and alleged encounter in two thousand fourteen with then vice president Biden, she calls the encounter awkward and says he grabbed her shoulders from behind sniffed her hair and kissed the back of her head before a campaign event. At the time says she felt embarrassed and powerless former vice president Biden responded with a statement that said quote in my many years on the campaign trail and in public life. I have offered countless handshakes hugs expressions of affection support and comfort and not once never did. I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested that I did. So I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention Lucy. Flora's is here to speak with us about this alleged encounter from our studios in Culver City, California. We should also say we have invited the former vice president to respond to the allegations in an interview, and we have not yet received a response Lucy. Flores thank you for being with us. Thank you. My pleasure. Miss flora, can you describe the encounter in your own words? Share will. I mean, it's just as I described it happened. Very suddenly I was on expecting it. It was a campaign rally setting. So there was a lot of chaos a lot of people a lot of energy. We were all kind of in public vice president Biden, and I were never alone together. So as we were waiting to be called up to the stage. The rally had already started people were already speaking. We were waiting in line. Even Gloria was in front of me, Joe Biden was behind me. And you know, I just all of a sudden feel his hands. And I feel him get up really close to me. And i'm. Just you know, at that point processing, and I'm thinking, okay. This is really weird. But then he leans in. And then he like inhales, and and then he proceeds to plant this long kiss on the top of my head and the entire time. And just kinda like what is happening as we mentioned, former vice president Biden has released a statement and says if he did behave this way, he doesn't believe he acted inappropriately. What is your response to his statement? I need the vice president and all men and all people who are in positions of power to understand that in that setting in that situation that kind of behavior is absolutely inappropriate. A big part of the reason why I'm also speaking out now is because he has a history of this. This is not in unknown issue. There have been stories. There are pictures. There are videos, I think that there is a very severe disconnect and lack of empathy for what the women on the receiving end are feeling I understand that he's trying to clear his his intention, but it's not about your intention. Whether it was an innocent gesture whether it was a sexual gesture none of that matters. It is about the person on the receiving end of that inappropriate behavior by someone who is very very clearly. More powerful than you that power dynamic is important to recognize the organizer of the event, you describe is Henry Munoz the co founder of the Latino victory project and he released a statement Saturday night, and he says quote at no time were these two leaders alone together. And I and the organization I co-founded and those in attendance, do not believe that circumstances. Support allegations that such an event took place. What is your response to Mr. Munoz, Mr. boondocks saints took oh and read my ass because clearly he didn't read it or if he read it he didn't comprehend it he specifically inquired about whether or not we were ever alone. And I never ever stated that we were alone. In fact, I've been very clear that this was always out in public. You said in your article that you're not suggesting that Joe Biden broke any laws. Why did you wish to come forward? Over the years. I have seen that this type of inappropriate behavior by Joe bye. Heiden? But also by others has not been taken seriously. And in many ways, if the media did talk about it. They kind of talked about it jokingly and kind of giving him a pass like this is just Biden being Biden boys will be boys while I'm saying, no, so former vice president Joe Biden is mulling a presidential run. Do you think he should run for president? I don't believe he should run for president that being said, I'm not supporting any other candidate. I'm not saying these things because I'm trying to lift up anybody else. We have many many qualified candidates including women, and I want to continue hearing from all of them. And as far as it relates to president Biden. No, I don't believe that he should run. There's a reaction to Joe Biden generally that his behavior is possibly a generational misunderstanding. That went vitamin considers quote expressions of affection others, consider completely inappropriate. And and what is your view about this there? Very well could be that aspect in the same way that you have folks who are serving who up until recently, you had people who were against the Civil Rights Act and were pro segregationists. And those people were still serving in our government. I think that culture is changing and it's changing for the better. And that's what we

Michael covers apple for the Wall Street Journal in joins us from San Francisco trip. Apple is also announced plans to add hundreds of jobs in cities where it already has offices know New York, Boston Portland, Oregon was the news about a new campus in Austin a surprise. And what about the other locations? The news was a surprise earlier this year apple announced that it would name new campus a new facility by the year's end and in doing so it said that it would it would name the facility in a state other than California and Texas where it has existing operations. So today's announcement was surprise in the sense that this new campus that wasn't else is in Texas where. For Apple's already operating. And also as I mentioned these other locations that was a surprise to me. There was no beauty contest about any of these locations. You know, San Diego Seattle Culver city. It's a surprise unless you're a close follower of apple in the case of Culliver city apples been adding jobs to support its Hollywood operations there and its expansion into video streaming programming in the case of Seattle.

From HQ2 to Trump, Amazon to face a lot of challenges in 2019 (The 3:59, Ep. 504)

"To three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX urban Joni Sussman twenty nine team. It's shaping up to be a challenging one for Amazon with critic seemingly coming out of the woodwork in New York City against its h q to project their plus the company faces potential troubles from President Trump. And it's controversial facial recognition software. So Joan what I wanted to ask you about this is do you think that Amazon's really strong reputation with his customers will continue to help insulating. It from some of these issues seems like people consumers have sort of bifurcated their understanding of Amazon like I feel like even like we were chatting before this. I'm New Yorker year. You're earning Johnny live in this area. We're talking about reasons that it's. The reasons that some people are annoyed with the issue decision to move here. But even though I am one of the people it's kind of annoyed by still use Amazon constantly, so as like a consumer as a service, I think that people will continue to judge Amazon the service different than Amazon as a company. Yeah. I totally agree. I was at a council hearing that ran for like three hours yesterday where a bunch of council members where beating up Amazon about the age to process how they're being cut out of it. And that this is going to be a state process that in like the fact that Amazon was going to get three billion dollars in incentives for building. What are the council members? I thought really crystallized a lot of what we're talking about. Really? Well, and he specifically said we we love you. And we hate you. And it wasn't or whatever it was like, we're we kinda feel the same two things about Amazon at the exact time. So I was kind of in the story that I wrote today though, I was kinda. Curious to see people really like a lot of Google services. People use a lot of Google services. People really like Facebook to there's a reason why social media company out there. So I was curious to see if with all this tech backlash that was going on directed at both of those companies whether Amazon would start to face some of those similar issues there there are like a lot of those issues that have been simmering with the company, but at the same time, I really don't think that they've been hit the same way as Facebook and Google, I if you agree with that. Yeah. But I think that's because most of the tech backlash or we're talking about it's mostly been centered on Facebook, really like is Facebook has been the locus of all that animosity. And I think Google and YouTube are pulled into that vortex because they have services that are very similar like they have these user generated. Eh social based things where this abuse all kind of able to. It's like a little crackling fire all able to the fuel each other Amazon isn't really operating in those spaces. And so it's been insulated in a way. Yes. But I think that that doesn't mean that it the next tech backlash twenty nineteen might be like rate in the sweet spot for Amazon. Might be related to facial recognition software or might be related to President Trump bringing up more issue's about postal service. There's a lot. Either way next up apple is building its own hue to project in Austin, Texas. The company today unveiled plans for a one billion dollar campus there along with new offices in Seattle Cindy ago, Culver City, California as well as expanding operations in Pittsburgh, New York and Boulder, Colorado. So my question for you is should we go work for Amazon or apple my gosh, come on? Wow. That's why would we do that? But yeah, I mean, even though it's fun to kind of compare it to an H Q two idea. But it's really not. I mean, this is kind of different expansion of their workforce than the whole like dog and pony show around HQ to addition to this. You know, it's a lot the number of people that are going to be bringing jobs. They're going to be bringing to Austin is a lot smaller than either of the. Yeah. It's not nearly as big as sprinkling it around different other places that touch on initiatives that apple is increasing so related to that. Do you think apple is likely to face like similar criticisms aim is on with HQ to now? So I know and partly because of everything you said treating completely differently either way if you want to read more about these stories, check them out on CNN, Ben FOX or event Joni salesman. Thanks for listening.
