Agency homing in on social media companies' data collection
"U. S Federal Trade Commission has issued orders to Amazon, YouTube and Facebook and six other social media companies to hand over information. But how they collect and use information from users, the country's top privacy regular, saying the firms use of consumer data is quote shrouded in secrecy. The sweeping demand comes after the agency sued Facebook for alleged violations of antitrust laws just last week. Discuss We're joined by Mark Mahoney, managing director at RBC Capital Markets. So Mark obviously the pressure from the U. S government on Big Tech in general has been ratcheting up. How much does this latest salvo from the U. S government changed the equation. Just write it just like your expression. Emily. It just cracks. It's up the pressure on these these companies, and it's become a clearly a bipartisan issue. You notice that, in the congressional hearings in the middle of the summer is what I called up opening of a congressional bipartisan can of whup ass on on Big Tak. It's Republicans and Democrats. So yeah, these these companies have planned to become very large, very powerful, and there are legitimate questions. So it's the weather. They become too large, too powerful both in terms of their acquisitions and then their internal practices. Privacy issues are a little bit separate. But you know the scrutiny is a super high and at that leased it very much limited ability of these companies to do any large scale acquisitions. This statement from the FTC today, the decisions that prominent online platforms make regarding consumer and customer data remains shrouded in secrecy. Critical questions about business models, algorithms data collection and use have gone on answered. Policymakers and the public are in the dark about what social media and video streaming services due to capture and sell user's data and attention. It is alarming that we still know so little. About companies that know so much about us. You know, as somebody who has covered these companies for so many years, you know, I'm sure this is probably the height of scrutiny that you have seen on these companies from the U. S government. How big a risk should investors take this into their calculations when they're thinking about whether to invest in these companies that already high Valuations. Well, let's see, I you know, we regulatory issues aren't necessarily new Google is paid. I think about $10 billion now and find space book is a those air European finds Facebook has paid about 5 to 6 billion to us to the FTC for violating a consent decree or acknowledging that may have violated a consent decree so investors were used to find Investors. They're used to this kind of scrutiny. So I don't think it changes the investment thesis on this name. You'd have to really have a required break up or required changing business practices. But Emily, you've tracked decision industry for a long time. A lot of these models. It's kind of a trade off for consumers. You you know, if you want a free service, you have to give up some of your privacy. You have to give information and by the way, in many ways, I think it actually makes the service a lot better. You get targeted ads rather than junk mail on. I think most consumers prefer the targeted ads, how, In fact, they get the information to target the ads. I mean, that's kind of a secret sauce for a lot of these businesses, and they probably not tell regulators or anybody that for competitive reasons, but they may be forced to now because of regulators, and so anyway, that's that's the new issue, but I don't think it changes the investment thesis on this name for good for for investors. What about the risk in particular of Facebook being broken up? Given that the FTC certainly it's not required, but the FCC has suggested that could be a remedy spinning off instagram spinning off. What's up? Well, it could be one of the smoking guns Emily that came out of this congressional hearings this summer and, by the way, was already brought up in a couple of really great books that have been published in the last year or two about Facebook and Instagram quickly. Several fires book is that there's no question that Facebook bought Instagram, in part to take on what they perceived as a potential future competitors. And so the those air those are the things that antitrust laws they're sort of meant to stop or to at least address why there was The dress. The first time the FTC looked at that acquisition is a little bit of a mystery. But anyway that Z it does. It does raise the issue that these will be forced breakup. I think break up of what's happens a little harder to see what the rationale for that would be. It's not clearly in the same industry as Facebook. That was kind of the more about our thought. Colonel acquisition, but the person's gonna be there. I think it's unlikely they'll be required spin offs, but it is possible. Now you just put out a note on uber and you are pretty bullish on how they come out of the pandemic. Why? Tuck. I'm sorry, Emily. Let's see the uber. This remains our topic in the group. We have snow dust this multi year rise in the interest of ride sharing what I found. Most interesting. This from this report in the survey was the finding that consumers are finding new use cases for ride sharing. Dark Custer shot. He talked about this on the last earnings call that New Yorkers you specifically pointing to. We're starting to use ridesharing during the middle of the date or non peak commute times. Our surveys show that people Start to use ride sharing to run errands. If that use case continues, post Cove it and then you have your general use cases rising for social events. First for airport runs. What it means is that the use cases for ridesharing for uber for lift all then they're gonna be greater post cold Whenever postponed. It is. I thought that was an unusually bullish take away, So we continue to like Cooper. It's our topic in large cap. Now interesting. Uber's Obviously one of the companies that has struggled in the midst of the pandemic. Stitch fix is another company that your look looking at that struggled early on as well made big job cuts but seems to be taking off like a rocket ship. What do you seeing in terms of the path ahead there? So that's gonna be a covert recovery. Play on that retail is a category Emily just accelerate like a rocket ship throughout Cove it except for fashion apparel because we didn't want to buy clothes to go out because we weren't going out. But now we starting to think about going out. There's been a lot of pent up dollars. Uh, I think people will be looking to refresh their wardrobes. And in the meantime, I think Stitch fix Katrina like that, that company, I think they've done a lot of product improvements. And to me, that's what innovation product groups really tried that you do these for these companies over time, and I think investors kind of made miss Mr Underappreciated. Some of the changes that they've made the side is more personalized. They figured out new features that kind of game ified to service a little bit on. I think that you come out of covert. You'll see a really nice sharp recovery in both new users and in revenue it stitch fix. This has been one of our topics and small cap. We've had a dramatic surge in the shares, so it's become a pretty small by force now, but fundamentally, it's a much stronger acid. It will be coming out of orbit and it was coming in. That's why investors are excited. Now even covering take a long time Mark, and I'm sure you follow the Airbnb and Gord Ash I pose last week, doubling their valuations. Even Brian Chesky. The CEO, seemed stunned when I told him live on air, where the shares were about to open at As we head into 2021. Are you concerned about froth in the market? We're already looking at a couple of companies affirm and road blocks that are postponing their I pose till next year. As as we they try to get a sense of what is happening in this market. Well, yeah, This is unusual What we're seeing, and I don't have been a formal opinion, either Airbnb and or door dash. I wanna look at names this year, which have risen a lot because their estimates have gone up. So I look at a good classic case like a Facebook or an Amazon. It's not so much the re rating. We haven't seen these multiples. Five the moon. What we've seen this. The numbers have gone up Amazons. Everybody's estimates on the street for Amazon of Ghana materially since the beginning of the year because their revenue growth accelerated. There were big winners off of advertising on the cloud computing business, even though all three of their agents of growth have actually benefited from Cove it so I think there's less risk in a good, solid name like that, and my guess is that you'll see kind of a recovery back or returned by investors back to kind of the standard Bears of tech. Especially those that benefited but also came up with new investment initiatives. During the course of the year again, M sounds the poster child here. They're increasing their distribution capacity by 50%. This year, they really leaned in the cove it and I think what's gonna come out of that for them accelerated market share gains, So I think investors can still stick with that name and continued output for perform for them despite already out performing this year.

Our resident company is the San Francisco Ballet the San Francisco Opera the San Francisco Symphony and then San Francisco performances, of course is off the primary users of the Herbst theater, and we've had a long partnership with them as well.

So we're really big site for history. A lot of folks don't understand wage.

Yeah, we host a lot of history here and still continue to provide a meeting space to Veterans groups and a number of other non-profits working on behalf of veterans causes here in San Francisco. So

"Hey Terry here with your flash briefing for Monday. Hope you're off to a good start for your week as I promised a last week I've been diving into a little bit of the jobs that are available with Amazon particularly in Canada and there are a number of jobs particularly in Vancouver and Toronto that are currently available. And apart from yes you may be interested in applying for those jobs and by the way you can see those at Amazon dot jobs I was interested to see what kind of jobs are being posted because that may give us a little bit of a clue in terms of what features maybe seeing soon and one of the first jobs that came up on this list was. A development. Manager for Lexi Guard so you don't know guard is one of the features that is available in united. States. But it's not here in Canada. So what does that mean? Well, it does mean that Amazon obviously is trying to bring that to Canada but if they're looking to hire someone to work on it, it probably means that it's not quite ready yet for prime time here in Canada. So that's a little bit on the Lexi Guard. Some of the other jobs that I'm seeing posted include and these are all in Canada. Areas of applied scientists software development engineers, a quality assurance engineers, solutions, architects applied scientists.

Looking Ahead After Kentucky Speedway
"Beli go to the all-star racist of course midweek. We're excited for that, but then on the next points race Texas in points. Were there a premium now? Kyle because Cole custer winning this race taking a playoff position only nine races to go before the cut-off yet you know we talked about it a couple years ago when Chris Butcher won at Pocono when you're outside the top twenty five or back in points far enough, and then all of a sudden you leapfrog into that top. Top Sixteen, and you don't just leapfrog into that top sixteen you leapfrog into the playoffs. You leapfrog all the way that's how simple it is with that win, so I think when we look at that that puts a lot of pressure on sixteen, Seventeen, eighteen, also on fifteenth fourteenth. Thirteenth twelve these guys. It tightens up it again I'm back to the musical chairs, analogy, the music just stop for somebody and that top fifteen and they got bumped out. They went into this race thinking. They were only a few points in or a few points now and now they're out completely. They've to figure out how to find their way back into it, so that is the amazing part, and that is the exciting part for me about watching these next eight or ten races leading up to that bump leading up to that playoff situation, because there's so many things so many strategies that go into it and you've always got to be looking behind you at a team that can jump. Jump in and win a race. Yeah, so yet. Pressure is mounting now so when this season started. What feels like two and a half years ago? It's hard to imagine that we're talking about just non-racist until we get to the play offs, so I think that because of everything that's been happening. I'm not sure how many people have even been paying attention to those playoff standings that much, but with coal customers win. That is open. Everyone's ass is open. The eyes of those people that are. Back to sixteenth Jimmy Johnson sitting in that sixteenth spa is the eyes of some rookies and some other teams that haven't won yet, but see that. Coq Gun win a race. That says that this is open to anybody and everybody could possibly do that, so the the pressure's GonNa. GonNa, amount here and we've. We've got racist coming up as some very difficult tracks, a coupla double header weekends that Never GonNa come along so many things happening that we can see a lot of shakeup in display off standings as we look at, it might not look anything like what we see right now, but cold customers proved to the world that is out there for the.
‘The Outpost’: A War Film Remembers the Fallen
"There's a lot of talk about this film That's based on a book that was written by Jake Tapper called the Outpost and the Holy Moly. I mean, for those of us looking for a molecular altering war drama in this age of sheltering in place. Isn't this movie The outpost? It's an Afghanistan war drama film directed by the always reliable and former film critic Rod Laurie. And, as you said, Based on the 2012 nonfiction book, The Outpost and Untold Story of American Valor by Jake Tapper. And It's about the Battle of Cam Desh, which I knew nothing about which happened in 2009 in northern Afghanistan when 300 Taliban attacked the American outpost, Keating Which was built in a remote valley that was completely surrounded by the Hindu Kush mountains. And this was one of several outposts that the I learned this from watching. The movie is one of several outposts of the US Army established in 2006 in northern Afghanistan, whose purpose was to connect with the locals and stop the flow of weapons and Taliban fighters from Pakistan. So, but this outpost was literally at low ground. It was surrounded by mountains, so in a way the American soldiers who were stationed there We're sitting ducks for the Taliban. In fact, as the movie says, in the beginning of one analyst maintains that this particular outpost must might just as well have been called Camp Custer because everyone at the outpost was probably going to die. So at least you the viewer right from the get go because they Tell you a lot of this. In the beginning, you know the kind of war story you're going to be in for and what's going to follow, and this movie was anti war and anti war movies. They come very powerful, very visceral, very intense. And in one sense, it's nothing we haven't seen before. When I was watching it. I thought of movies like Paths of Glory in all quiet on the western Front of Gallipoli. But that doesn't take away from the fact that from the You know this story and the power and the intensity of what is an extremely well crafted and well acted movie. In a way it's torturing us having to sit through. This is kind of like Black Hawk down. It kind of reminded me of that, too, because you know, it ain't going to turn out well for these soldiers. There's a slow burning build up and the seeds are slowly sewn to a build up of what amounts to a 45 on screen. Massacre, but it's awfully good. I mean this movie if you have the stomach for it, and it brings, you know brings with it. A message seems to have to repeat it constantly and books and in movies and in history books you know before humanity decides it wants nothing more to do with wars and alternative. The conflict. It's It's a powerful anti war statement that says war is Hell. War's pointless wars. Ridiculous and you know, but we seem to Be constantly involved in them. And anyway, the movie was scheduled to premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival this year, but it was canceled because of the cove it on 19 pandemic, But it's going to be released via video undermanned beginning today. So happy for the July everybody, holy cows. We put you through the wringer. You know, it's funny to remember you were you were talking earlier We were talking What? We have been talking about this about missing the big screen experience. Yes, yes and When this When this length came to review, there was a letter attached to it. I'm sure everybody got this all the critics, but I just wanted to read because the cracks because, Hey, hey, this is Rob Laurie, the director of the outpost. I am excited. You're going to be one of the first people to see our film, on the other hand is, I am sure doesn't surprise you. It's a bit of a bummer that I am unable to show this to you. The way was originally intended on the big ass screen with the full visual scope and sound every inch of this film was designed to make it a fully immersive experience. Dance boy Waas mean I even on the small screen. It was particularly the battle, which takes up the second half of the film. So from the person who made this film to a fellow film lover, I would ask you to please try and replicate the theater experience as much as possible.

Black Sparrow and Buffalo Soldiers
"Since colonial times African Americans have fought in America's wars. In every war in fact, The first person to die in the revolutionary. War Christmas attics was black. Black soldiers have put their lives on the line for a country that for centuries enslaved segregated and discriminated against them. Until the Korean War black served in segregated units under racist leadership and often relegated to labor and service units. Despite the continuous discriminatory treatment that denied blacks full participation in America's military efforts, these brave men and women lived lives that deserve to be remembered. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Possibly the best known all black military unit comes with a bit of mystery in its history. They were called Buffalo soldiers, though there are competing reasons as to why. In eighteen, sixty, six and active congress created six all black peacetime regiments later consolidated into four, the ninth and Tenth Cavalry and the Twenty Fourth and twenty fifth infantry. Initially the Buffalo soldier regiments were commanded by whites with being forbidden from holding the ranks officers. These. Troops often faced extreme racial prejudice from the army establishment. Many officers including George Armstrong custer of boo and a his there. Refused to command black regiments, even though it costs them promotions. Further black troops could only serve west of the Mississippi. River, because many whites didn't want to see armed black men near their communities. It even sometimes happened that the buffalo soldiers suffered deadly violence at the hands of civilians. The Buffalo soldiers main duty was to support the nation's westward expansion by protecting settlers, building roads and other infrastructure and guarding the US mail. They served a variety of posts in the southwestern great planes, taking part in most of the military campaigns during the decades long Indian wars during which they compiled a distinguished record with eighteen buffalo soldiers awarded the Medal of honor. We don't have time today to dwell on the irony of African American soldiers, fighting native people on behalf of government that accepted neither group as equals. The exceptional performance of these soldiers helped to overcome resistance to the idea of black officers paving the way for the first african-american graduate from West Point Henry O flipper. Who will hear more about later? But. Fellow soldiers played significant roles in many other military actions. They took part in defusing the little known eighteen, ninety two Johnson County war in Wyoming, which pitted small farmers against wealthy ranchers and a band of hired gunmen. They also fought in the Spanish American and Philippine American wars and played a key role in maintaining border security during the high intensity, military conflict along the US Mexico border during the Mexican revolution. In Nineteen Eighteen, the tenth cavalry fought at the Battle of ambos Nogales where they assisted enforcing the of the Mexican federal and militia forces. Discrimination played a role in diminishing the buffalo soldiers involvement in upcoming major conflicts. During world. War One the racist policies of President Woodrow Wilson among whose claims to infamy include segregating federal offices led to black regiments, being excluded from the American Expeditionary Force, and placed under French command for the duration of the war. The first time ever that American troops were placed under the command of a foreign power. Then prior to World War Two, the ninth and Tenth Cavalry Regiments were essentially disbanded, and most of their troops moved to service roles. However the Ninety Second Infantry Division known as the Buffalo Division did see combat during the invasion of Italy while another division that included the original Buffalo Soldiers of the twenty fifth infantry. Regiment fought in the Pacific theater. The last segregated. US Army regiments were disbanded in nineteen,

Genevieve's custer weeks is a former ballet dancer a founder and CEO of the two school franchises. Welcome genevieve thank you so much for joining us Why don't you tell our listeners? A little bit about yourself. Thank you for having me excited to be here. Yeah I will you kind of summed it up in a nutshell. I am a retired ballet dancer and now the CEO of to school which is a collection of teak schools for young children. We have forty five locations that are open are opening Across the country and will soon be expanding into Canada to wow. That's incredible so really excited because I feel like there's there's still much we can talk about with you and learn from you both as ballet dancer and as a business owner and Entrepreneur. So maybe just tell us how you're star story starts you know. How did you even get into ballet? Yeah I think my story. It's interesting where my story started as a ballet dancer is very tied to a Lebanese. Want to search school now as a business. I was just that kid who was always. You know whatever music my parents had on in the living room I was dipped into it. I was moving to it so formative for me. It was idea that I could have space. Right could just explore new movement to name. It wasn't something I thought about. It was it was just natural impulse ways and something that brought me a lot of joy and something that later as adults I reflect on. Wow that was really pretty. You've found Mental kind of helping me figure out who is in to getting in touch with creativity impossibility so I think I was just. I was always moving in my parents. Naturally in dance lessons then and then it it It became clear pretty quickly bit. I wanted to do it seriously. You so I grip Madison Wisconsin. And at the time. There weren't really there were there weren't moving opportunities. Their first serious valley studied. There's more now so when I was fifteen I moved to Chicago I would be there during the week a home in the weekends so I could study Valley Chicago Did most formal training there and then A few years on from that got a job with Oakland Valley in California and moved out there today ends with them. They unfortunately ran into some Financial Difficulty Sell I end up staying in San Francisco where I was living in Oakland ballet but freelancing for for the bulk of my career freelancing around the country and while I was doing that that was sort of when I had this this realization. Bet I it was in between gigs immersing. For Different Jobs I was teaching at different schools. I really realized that a a loved loved loved working with the youngest answers of these schools. It just it was magical but then from a business perspective that they were really neglected so it was kind of like a traditional dance schools even though a lot of us think of adorable three year olds to us in a traditional all allies times. It's just sort of like. Hey somebody teach your own the Saturday morning. There isn't a ton of thought put into the curriculum for them. Mark how you might be approaching working with them and to looking at that you even say could see pretty easily but it was like typically the studios were kind of intimidating young dancers Big Cavernous warehouse spaces with a lot of older dancers on the curriculum with older dancers was really focused on like pretty intense strafing on sometimes a lot of different styles and I had this idea like what if we could have not Kelly's full where every aspect of the program would really be tailored to young dancers where you could really folk every single thing you did on you know. I'm using the three listen example but maybe even starting younger than that as we do not to school eighteen months and we're up to eight years old. Which is when if you're going to study more seriously you need to. You need to start on that and then you could really make sure that everything from the teacher. Training to the environment in the studio The curriculum all of the branding Would initially invite people in that. Every single part of the The poll program. The whole package would really be focused. Young Dancers as opposed to just sort of stick somewhere and the other key part of that thing. Was those glasses that were pretty neglected. Traditional schools were the ones that were full. They were the ones who were on waiting lists. They were actually a huge draw. They just weren't focus out most of the schools and so that was really where the idea to school was worn. I started the first one while I was still dancing professionally tap dancing for years afterwards. Still Doing GIG worker while I was opening the first two to squalls and and I'm so glad that they did. Because it was a really amazing way to transition out of a performing ballet instill Permit I love. That is awesome and it's going to be very cool to kind of profile out your story as a ballet dancer yourself and then think about what now looks like a as a business owner in franchise owner with take us back way at the beginning. What age did you actually start dancing up? I mean so I took. I was taking classes. That were not formal training but exploring movement starting in San has two or three And then more serious study started around eight kind of like I was saying instead he really would Because of where I was it was really a matter of trying to piece together. Our classes my parents. Some other parents of students were trying to study seriously area. Would like coordinate. These carpools to drive you know fairly long distances to get us the classes that we needed for those of us that we're trying to study more seriously than it was when I when I went to Chicago amounts know really when Mike. My formal training was starting in the summer. It's typical for for for professional professional valley. Students also go off to summer programs at different companies and institutions. That do not while I said he had the Kennedy Center for two Summers Suzanne Farrell in American theater new in San Francisco ballots for a couple of summers. So that was. It was a combination of all those things that making up my formal training but the bulk of it was was in Chicago which is now what when you think about that timing from. Let's let's start. I guess with kind of when you start when you initially started to when you start taking it seriously. What stands out about what your experience was like or what you were thinking at that time. Yeah interesting I think a lot of what I think about now to school and are sort of our mission and what we try and route everything in is how to keep its first of all how the tap into that inherent joy that children feel when they are connected with music and movement because it is something that as the training more serious You know from that period of like eight in Alaska's in starting in your teenagers and hopefully you're getting to start rehearsing for things in some performance experience to which is very natural way to experience that again but the training part of it could be pretty growing and can sometimes you know whether it's it's. I don't think it's intentional. That can sometimes really sort of almost trained out of these kids joy. I hold them in. So that's something that I feel very fiercely protective of now it's useful. Is You know 'cause there. Is this whole sort of impulse. I think just in society and you know we could go off on a tangent about helicopter parents and everything to understand the idea that we all WanNa make. Our children are getting everything. They need achieving all these things. It's interesting to see how young starts that parents are sort of wondering like are they gonNa Technical Instruction made an era day focusing in the right waves. When it's like will you know what a five year olds job in a dance is really themselves these Tchaykovsky work on proper alignment and turnout leaner? And it's not that we don't introduce work on those things but that that that truly isn't the most important thing and I do think that when I look back on those years for myself certified Of giving from initial falling in love with ballet to what took me into having a career. It went their way censor constant tension with that with the idea of. It's really hard when you get into the formal training and maintain a connection to what is I need you fall in love with it to make sure that it stays worth it. Did you know early on? Was the goal. Even at that age eventually become professional or did that come at a later phase. I remember becoming pretty clearly still for me at the ground thirteen like I remember kind of feeling like I was making that choice in it. That was never really felt like an age working you a lot was happening socially for at school and and things like that you were there are something beginning getting to be lots of polls on my time in times where. I would have to choose to go to La instead of going hanging out with friends and that it did even though that sounds like such a young point which say admitting Joe Career that I did sort of feel that it was like okay. I know that if I wanted to do this business at the point at which it really has to continue full throttle a handy.

Thunderhead mountainous situated between Custer and hill city upon completion. The head of crazy worse will be the world's largest sculpture of the human head during approximately eighty seven feet tall more than twenty seven feet taller than the sixty foot. High faces of the US presidents to picked it on mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse memorial. As a whole will be the largest sculpture in the world. There is no target completion date that this time, but in one thousand nine hundred the face of Crazy Horse was completed and dedicated so this is a completely private project. It's based completely on volunteer contributions. So there, you know, there's no time. They're just working working on as they can. But so it's still being worked on they worked on today. Pretty interesting. So the Crazy Horse. But after fleeing to Canada sitting bull eventually surrendered in eighteen eighty one he toward with buffalo. Bill cody's buffalo bill's wild west.

We'll lived on standing rock reservation until he was killed by a native American agent policemen during a conflict at his house in eighteen ninety. So the dead at the battle of little bit corn were given a quick burial. Where they fell by the first soldiers who arrived at the scene Custer was later disinterred and reburied at West Point other troops who were also disinterred for private burials after that in eighteen eighty one memorial was erected in honor of those who lost their lives. A trench was below the memorial to rebury. The remaining battlefield remains in a marker was erected where each soldier had fallen in battle. While Custer never had the chance to defend his own actions at the battle of the little Bighorn. His widow Libby campaign for his legacy and promoted him as a brave hero cut down in the prime of his life while defending his country, the deaths of Custer and his troops became the best known episode in the history of the American and native American wars due in part to the painting commissioned by the brewery Anheuser-Busch as part of an advertising campaign. All good. Yes. I know the city. This thirty. Yes. The company had ordered reprints of dramatic work. That depicted Custer's last stand and had them framed and hung in many US saloons, and this created lasting impressions of the battle in the Burris products in the minds of many bar patrons. So it was just essentially what Libby bacon did or. Or Libby bacon. She just really branded him to hell like just really made him out great marketing campaign left right and center, and that's why we know Custer's last because for all intensive purposes. I mean, granted it was very it was a very dramatic thing. But the fact that it's still like lasts to today considering that this wasn't like a m- a major like say war revolutionary war anything like that event that it's still able to say that it's Custer's last stand it sound like he was on the defense. Exactly that like they were under attack. You know, he and his men bravely fought to the end. Yeah. When actually yeah. Layaway were eighty one attacking someone else's an interesting. I imagine that the context by which Custer's last stand is not super well known by like, oh, yeah. It was last Dan less and against to. I dunno.

"The great Sioux nation retained offers a region hunting rights to a much larger area south to the Republican and Platte rivers in east of the big horn mountains and under article twelve no cessation of land would be valid unless approved by three fourths of the adult males. Okay. However after gold was discovered in those of South Dakota in eighteen seventy four the government had a change of heart, and they decided to break the treaty and take back the land. Gosh, Hoster was tasked with relocating all native Americans in the area to reservations by January. Thirty first eighteen seventy six any native American who didn't comply would be considered hostile. She's the eight of Americans. However, did not take this deception. Line down those that could let the reservations and travelled on Tanna to join forces with sitting bull and Crazy Horse at their fast-growing camp thousand-strong the group eventually settled on the banks of the little Bighorn river. All right. You get there the scene it's happening Montana. Let's so the US army dispatched three calms of soldiers including Custer in his seventh cavalry to round up, the native Americans and return them to the reservations, the plan was for Custer's cavalry inventory of Brigadier. General Alfred Terry to meet up with the troops under the command of Colonel John gibbon in Brigadier General, George crook. They would then find the native Americans, surround them and force their surrender, obviously. Yeah. Okay. One of the generals. Crook was delayed, but Terry Custer in gibbon Ronnie viewed in mid June scouting party found native American trail headed toward the little Bighorn valley and the group decided Custer should move in surround the native Americans and await reinforcements. So they're like you do it. Yeah. Okay. Good rail there. Yeah. Go ahead. So. Oh, meanwhile, at little Bighorn valley Villacorta leader sitting will division in which she saw many soldiers falling upside down into the Lakota camp, which his people took as a foreshadowing of a major victory in which a large number of American soldiers would be killed yet. So this is documented that he had this vision or any of this happened that they would they were good way. We're going to be victorious. And so this actually helped to propel like the, you know, the jazz amid tippety and what would happen at the event. Gosh, that's cool. So Custer forged ahead. But things didn't go quite as planned around midday on June twenty fifth eighteen seventy six his scouts located sitting bull's camp near the little big horn river in the crow Indian reservation in southeastern Montana territory instead of waiting for reinforcements Custer planned a surprise attack for the next day. He moved it up though, when he thought the native Americans had discovered his position so poster divided his six hundred men into four routes. He ordered one small battalion to stay with the supply train and the other two. Led by captain, Frederick, Ben teen and major Marcus Reno to attack from the south and prevent the native Americans. From escaping cluster would lead the final group about two hundred ten men and plan to attack from the north Reno's group attack, the native Americans I but swiftly retreated after discovering they were completely outnumbered. And by the time, they'd regrouped at least thirty troops were dead while captain Ben teens droops came to major Reno's aid and the combined battalions joined forces on. What is now known as Reno hill. They remain there. Despite Custer's order, which said bend teen come on big village. Be quick bring packs PS bring packs. PS important part of that lay. Bring those. The exact events of Custer's last stand are unclear what is known as that. Neither benching nor Reno were able to help Custer despite admitting later, they'd heard heavy gunfire coming from Custer's position to the north way to segue to segue. Segue. Do you think that they hated him? They're like this guy is such a pain in my ass. What if they were like? Someone help us. They're like, I don't hear anything to you benzine.

"Custer's low class rank would result in like an obscure posting in the army Custer was lucky enough to graduate as the civil war broke out. And that was basically all hands on deck. Sure show. He just pressed him out there. So in April eighteen sixty one Custer joined the union army's cavalry and actually proved himself there a competent reliable soldier in battle such as the first battle of bull run Manassas Virginia in the battle of Gettysburg. I'm gonna do a future topic on the battle of Gettysburg just saying that shows up a lot, but keep this so customers to several times despite having no direct command experience, but Custer did become one of the youngest generals in the union army at age twenty three his relentless pursuit of the army. Northern Virginia is often partially credited for helping to end the civil war. Okay. So Custer twos. Credit? He wasn't afraid of getting his hands dirty. Unlike many other generals, he led his men from the front instead of from Bihar. Hind and was often the first to plunge into battle in February eighteen sixty four Custer, married. Elizabeth or Libby bacon. She wasn't initially impressed with him and her father judge Dana bacon, disapproved of Custer as a match because he was just the son of a blacksmith. It wasn't until well after Custer had been promoted to the rank of Brigadier General that he gained the approval of judge bacon and the go ahead to marry Libby. Join six yeah. In eighteen sixty six he was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in charge of the seventh cavalry unit and went with liberty Kansas to fight in the plains Indian wars. So the Great Plains and the mid nineteenth century. They were last real native American holdout in America. So settlers were colonizing the far west before this award happen, but not too many actually settled in the planes due to its weather, and, you know, large native American population. Sure, they were scared of them at that point. But after the civil war far west became scarcer and the US government granted ten percent of planes land to settlers and railroads. So basically a confrontation between the plains Indians. Against the settlers and the government forces beat was inevitable. Yeah. Of course. And I'm saying plains Indians because they referred to themselves as the plains Indians as group, otherwise I'm trying to say Americans this. It's excellent. We try and be respectful of all all people places and things. Yes. So by the eighteen sixties most native Americans had been forced onto reservations or outright killed vowing to avoid the same fate the plains Indians settled in for a long fierce hold out in hopes of squashing, the native Americans livelihood. The government allowed the roads to kill scores of buffalo herds in order to lay railroad tracks. They also urged hunters to kill as many buffalo as possible without any oversight. And they encourage trains to stop. So passengers could get off and massacre. Buffalo work. Yeah. Yeah. The more that the whites needlessly slaughtered the buffalo the anger the native Americans grew. Yeah. Some stage brutal tax on settlers in railroad workers without regard to age your gender and to the native Americans the railroad represented an end to their livelihood since from Linnea. They'd relied on the free roaming buffalo to surf. Oh my gosh. So by the time Custer arrived on the scene in eighteen sixty six the war between the army and the plains Indians was like really in full force Custer's first assignment was helping Major General Winfield. Scott Hancock carry out. What was essentially a shock-and-awe campaign to overwhelm the native Americans at the end of the campaign custard. Deserted his post and join his wife at Fort Riley, Kansas like like he was out there fighting, and then he was like, I'm gonna head home..

A battle known as Custer's last stand it began with a vision during a Sundance ceremony in the spring of eighteen seventy six in it chief sitting bull. So American soldiers falling from the sky upside down and prophesized a great victory for his Lakota tribe over the US army, the whites want war he said, and we will give it to them a few years before the US government had discovered gold in the nearby black hills and one of the tribes to sell their land. When they refuse the US government was determined to round them up and move them to the great Sioux reservation in. What was then Dakota territory. Eighteen seventy six general. Alfred Terry said out eight hundred seventy nine men to force them to surrender members of the Lakota Cheyenne and arapaho tribes gathered here at little Bighorn river ready to defend their home and hunting ground when he found signs of a large tribal encampment the general divided his troops. He ordered Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer and his seventh cavalry to flank the Lakota and Cheyenne from the south to keep them from escaping the larger military attack from the north. But soon after Custer heard that his troops had been spotted afraid that the tribes would scatter before the rest of the army arrived. He decided to attack even though he had no backup. Custer divided. His cavalry into three battalions. While his own battalion of two hundred ten men at at north. He was hoping you could surround and force the tribes into submission. But Custer's plan was about to go horribly wrong. Little is known about what happened next. But it's believed that hundreds of Cheyenne and Loko to Frickley overwhelmed Custer's troops. Many were killed as native warriors pursued them across these dry hills. It was in this ravine that the last of Custer's men met their fate taken down by clubs arrows and bullets. Not a single one survived. Colonel Custer was found near the top of last stand hill with a shot to his head and one was just legend has it that Lakota warrior Crazy Horse personally killed Custer. But no one knows for sure. Historians believe that the battle of little Bighorn lasted about an hour. Not a single one of the soldiers in Custer's battalion live to tell the tale. Today, a granite monument stands on the site where Custer and the last of his men were surrounded. Most of the soldiers were buried where they fell today, they're marble gravestone still dot the landscape is small groups revealing their frenzied attempt to retreat from certain death. The soldiers bodies related moved nearby to Custer national cemetery. It's estimated that at least eighty native Americans died during the battle. A memorial by native artist marks their loss. The Lakota and Cheyenne may have won the battle. But also they lost the war the United States succeeded in forcing the tribes into reservations and settlers soon moved in to claim the land for themselves..

So I reached out to him and during our conversation, he pointed out the different sides to Custer, including the fact that it really was a very curious medic person. Of course, he was lucky to be married at his funeral woman. The Jackie Kennedy of her time. And so it was a nice flamboyant kind of couple of the American people, you know, kind of look up to him when working on stories that go way back I go to libraries or newspaper databases to track down old papers. I kept reading about Custer grabbing the attention of the media. But where was the proof? It didn't take long to find during the civil war. Harper's weekly was the most widely read journal in the United States on the cover of the March nineteenth eighteen sixty four addition I discovered none other than Custer himself. He's leading a charge with a group of men behind him men might I add that don't look to thrilled to be with him, but not Custer his hair blowing in the wind a neatly combed mustache, he has his sword pointed out towards the distance in one direction the direction he seems intent on going his horse, perhaps more sensible is trying to go in the other direction the direction that is likely more safe even as men and their horses in the backdrop once you look closely our position towards the safer direction. Historian, Michael a Elliott said one of the things that is remarkable about Custer is the number of photos of him. He understood there was a new kind of visual imagery. At work in society. And that it could be manipulated. But make no mistake Custer was a great strategist and soldier. If he wasn't good at what he did. No number of photos would place him in the history books while soldiers would get mad at him for unnecessarily putting their lives on the line. It should also be noted that in many of the history books. I read it was pointed out that Custer never asked anyone to do anything. He would not George Armstrong Custer wanted to be remembered, and he succeeded perhaps beyond his wildest imagination me, Chris Flannery, executive producer of the show. He has an incredible beard. He's a tough New Yorker. He has that raspy. Ed burns type of voice women love him. Although he's married to a beautiful woman. But his security is vital. He's an important guy. But in all seriousness security is important not just Christmas. And so is your families and your own ring? Mission is to make neighborhoods safer..

"So it's definitely have as much water and you can how much do you think you lose on an average race? I haven't weighed myself. I would say somewhere little under ten pounds. I think I've heard before, but I'm not honestly positive. So fan saying that you just sitting around turning steering wheel, they're pretty much wrong. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's I mean, pretty it's pretty much much like. like you're sitting in Saen all for about four hours. So it's, it's definitely gets you by the end of the race. Would you like to see more short tracks on the NASCAR schedule? For sure. I mean, I think that'd be huge thing for this series. It kinda mix up the schedule and do some more short tracks in some more road courses and things like that. So if they could, I think w to the series a couple of the races on the schedule coming up for the playoffs that might be land mines or wildcards or whatever. The Charlotte robo comes to mind first and foremost, what are your thoughts? It's going to be interesting. Definitely. Nobody really knows what to expect. I think it's just the race is going to be crazy. I think it's gonna be really hard to pass. So you might have to, you know, route and gouge buys people, and just it's going to be probably probably survive survival race. So you got to be there thin. So it's going to be interesting. I don't know what to expect now for Phoenix, I'm I'm interested to see all the renovations, but you guys have the start finish line in a different place now. Yeah, didn't think about that, but that's going to be interesting. So definitely change restarts I don't know whether that's going to do, but it's definitely going to be something you have to think about going there. Have you had a chance to catch Dale Jr. on on the broadcast and what are your thoughts on his coverage? I think it's been awesome. I think he's definitely made the broadcast better and I think really helped it. So I think it's cool to have him on the broadcast and bring that kind of insight. If you were to build a track, what we're what would be some of the features that you'd like to bring to it? I don't know. I think I would build short-track maybe probably half mile or five eight or something like that. And then fairly fairly banked I would say and I don't know somewhere in the cross between Richmond and I I would say is probably a good detract. All right, very cool. And last question, couple years down the road, you're huge, massive. NASCAR fan Hollywood comes knocking, say wanna make a movie about you which accurate you like to play. You. I have no idea. I don't know. I like Mark Wahlberg a lot. He's one of my favorite actors, but I don't know how do play be playing me, but it's I have no idea. That's what Daniel Henrik said. Really. I don't know. Like on the same page, I guess. Right. All right. Well, I guess good choice co Custer. Thanks so much for being on the final app and good luck this weekend and throughout the playoffs. Thank you. All right there you have Cole Custer. Thanks so much for him for taking time out to talk to.

So the you had some rain at India. Notice you became a monopoly expert. Did you pick up any tips for anybody? Not really. I, I one I want our game monopoly, so I got that going for me, but. It took forever. It's like a four hour game. So it's, I don't know. It was fun though. You got to do something during the rain delay. That's true. I haven't seen a driver do that. Usually it's video games or movies or anything like that. It's a little creative. Yeah. Things he played as a kid. So I mean they had it. They added on the on the bus, so we start playing it. I've been following the saga of your facial hair and your your hair on your head and your smooth now. Yeah, I had to get rid of it. It was. It was. It was fun to do for that weekend, but it was definitely something I don't wanna walk around with so it it was fun to do for the fans, but I'm happy that my whole old hair bag, you kind of have to document everything these days. We're social media, right? Every little thing you do. You have to put up there. Let's post this. Yeah. I mean, it's definitely social is the place to be right now. So it's uniform. I gotta have your game together there, but it's, you know, it's just part of it. Did you see the Cup cars in the playoffs? They have to have the emojis on their cars of seeing those. I have seen those. Yeah, it's it's interesting. It's like. Like the idea that they have gone by. They may look a little bit better, but I do like the idea that they're going. You wish you guys had that for here and the extended series. I think it would be cool. I think if they tried to blend it in the Carl, we'll better. I think that would work though. All right. You got a chance to bowl with a professional recently. How was that? It was cool that I mean, it was really cool. I walked Glenn to get the bowl them and try and show my skills off. Actually, when I get to both of them, I played pretty good. So it was it was pretty fun. So go bowling's a new. I'm looking forward to Richmond having them on the car. So. We give them a good around. They give you any pointers. Not much. I think I'm not. I'm I'm so bad that they, I'm, I'm not gonna make any gains even if they tried to help me. So it's definitely it's fun. Get go out bolo don't they get strikes almost every time pretty much. I mean it was pretty impressive. How meticulous and everything they can be with hitting the pins and the right angles and everything. So it was definitely impressive with Casey. Cain, having to sit out due to dehydration last few races and possibly beyond knows you've got your bottle of water, their fans wanna know exactly. How long in advance do you have to get ready? Usually gotta start Wednesday, let's say highgrading. Especially for the hall weekends. I mean, the the cooler weekends, it's not really that big Benicia, but you don't wanna make sure you're gonna end of the race and definitely sweat a lot..

And we did a really good job of of the strategy of being able to win that second stage and you know stretching on fuel. And when that when that stage that was really big, four, second of setup are all day. Even though we had to go to the back and pit again. You know, we're able to kind of put ourselves spot where towards end of the day, we were just racing eight and fourteen and we were just riding, you know, right in front or behind the eight just because we didn't wanna let him out of our sight. So when he paid it towards the end of the race, we pitted just to stay on the same strategies with fourteen, but we put ourselves in a spots. Kep lies on something happening and we did, but you know, really big to be able to win for Roger. You know, obviously that's not the way I'd want to do it. I want to go out and dominate the race, these these whenever you went something like this, it's weird feeling. I don't really want to call it an undeserved feeling, but I it's just kind of an odd feeling. We put ourselves into get spot, but now it was worked out for us. But yeah, we were trying to third, I was just thinking about points. You know, we were. We were on points and I was just cool with riding around in third. But then that situation happened. We happened to be there kerchief guy, Jeremy bulletins that too. Yeah, you know, for us the the race keet a lot off the stage points, you know, being what our situation was coming in. We need to get every point we could today. And so we made a play to to win stage two and knew we had our work cut out for us to get back to the front because of that. But it just worked out, you know, the, the play that we made panned out in the last age. We had. Rush tires at the end. And the cautions were working out for us to gain some track position. And we were in position when those guys got together on the last lap that you know, I think since we everybody, I saw the the track map..
