Challenging Microsoft, Salesforce to Purchase Slack for $27 Billion

"To be a leader of a company that brings virtual teams together since the pandemic emerged. Software companies. selling. Collaboration tools have found themselves in the corporate. Sweet spot the pandemic is made formerly useful tools utterly essential without videoconferencing document sharing the light corporate productivity would ground to a halt when we all began working from home now that more and more big companies are telling employees. They can work from home forever. It appears that teamwork may never go back to the way it was before remote teams. Could well be the new normal. A world view that both software vendors and investors are banking on. That's one obvious reason behind. Last week's blockbuster deal salesforce the two hundred. Twenty billion dollar sales and marketing. Software behemoth is acquiring work chat company slack the purchase price more than twenty-seven balloon dollars. That's with a b. Ceo's of both companies spared no hyperbole in describing the potential pairing salesforce eeo mark. Benny off described it as a match made in heaven slack. Founder and ceo stewart butterfield. Said he believes. This is the most strategic combination in the history of software with the purchase salesforce could expand beyond the realm of sales and marketing and into all corners of big companies according to observers like box ceo aaron levie and slack could expand its user base something. It's apparently been struggling to do. Despite remote workers needs for better communication tools slack has one of the best brand names in the business who in the corporate world hasn't been slacked at one point or another surprisingly though the brand may be bigger than the business itself last october. The company said it had twelve million active daily users but it has an updated those numbers sense slacks sales jumped almost fifty percent in the second quarter of the year but watching as the corporate world began laying off workers butterfield warned investors that sales growth was likely to cool down. It felt a forty percent of the third quarter the new york times reported. That's all in contrast to what's happening at slacks and sale forces biggest rival. That would be microsoft. Microsoft teams competes directly with slack. Some say microsoft copied slack when it debuted teams in late. Twenty sixteen but microsoft has a built in advantage it bundles teams for free with its office suite. Microsoft three sixty five that strategy was rocket fuel for teams taking it from zero to one hundred fifteen million users in four years. According to urge reporter. Casey newton that bundling is such an obstacle for slack that the smaller company filed a complaint against microsoft with the european commission in july according to the new york times quoted in the times edward jones analysts local perk observed that the salesforce deal is an admission that slack can no longer compete against the eight hundred pound gorilla that microsoft. This is more or less saying we need more firepower. Logan told the times under butterfield's leadership slack at previously spurned other suitors including google amazon and yes microsoft itself. Sales forces pending purchase of slack is the biggest in its twenty one year history. What it represents is nothing less than the potential reordering of the silicon valley universe with this move mark. Benef- is going after enterprise sales up against microsoft directly. That's a bold move and an interesting one given that. Benny off tried unsuccessfully to sell salesforce to microsoft five years ago. What happens next should be interesting for everyone involved especially employees simply trying to be productive in stressful remote interrupt driven circumstances as the pandemic rearranges. Our work lives. It's also rearranging challenges and opportunities for makers of collaboration software. This won't be the last matchup. We'll see for companies that help us get work done together. As common collaboration software appears to be only about ten percent of us. Use it today. Box seo erin. levy says there's a huge untapped market out and so there are likely to be many many more deals like this on the horizon

We're talking about twelve billion pounds and he has around. Four billion pounds of this is new money.

The shuttle business sexually. Ed milliband made this point. There is an urgency. That isn't enough ambition. That isn't a real plan. He's got to do better in all of our interests that he does better. We will keep pushing the government on ambition on jobs on appropriate plan to rise to the scale of the climate emergency. We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times. In fact what did you make of it and how much of it was new money and new policy okay so this was a very long awaited announcement. They were meant to originally Back in the summer and it slipped because of pressures on number ten prime minister announced twelve billion pounds states investment program when you went through the numbers at ten about three billion pounds this new at included five hundred million hydrogen one billion pounds insulation three hundred million pounds for nuclear industry.

What were your thoughts. When you saw this announcement here because johnson has talked a lot about green policy arisons locked summer but it fuses if that rhetoric has increase as jim said that is new money on some new policies to go with it to there is a but by i know about this was a. It's brilliant. Hear a british conservative prime minister coming up with a plan like this. Because although we've had david cameron promising the government ever and then we had theresa may actually legislating for a net zero twenty fifty which was very pioneering for a country the size of britain at the time. The thing is. We really haven't seen a prime minister set out in a speech or in a plan like this thing as visionary really and it is a great vision. Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty.

It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that.

interview With Elisha Hall

"To have you on so we love starting off with this question because it's a great way to get into the show. What would you say is one of the craziest things you have experienced while on the road question because it's been so many i remember okay. So it's it's funny that this just popped in my mind. And i didn't even tell you about this before but My family and my dad was marines growing up so we used to travel around the united states all the time and several times. He drove cross country. And i remember one time. We were driving from the east coast to the west wintertime. And we're all in the minivan. Something happened where we hit some black ice on the road it was nighttime and our cars yet across the lane and did like a circle bend in the road and hit an embankment out on the side. And i remember thinking you know for me. I'm gonna adrenaline junkies. I it was fine with me. It just was what it was and nobody was hurt but that was good. My brother slept through the whole thing. and we it was interesting how we have. There's so many nice driver that drove island. Oh you okay. We'll call totara for yo. You call twitter. And then finally some guy came by the actually had a witch on his truck and pulled us out and it just. It's it's situations like that shows you know often is humanity but bad also shows you gotta be on your ps accuser and driving the middle of the night in the snow but it was that was one of the craziest but it was definitely interesting. Experienced having one driving at night in the snow is a thing of itself and then hitting black ice in the dark. I feel like that's more scarier and you don't know what you're in less control. I feel like because you can't see where you're going exactly and then you just the good thing. The snow is soft but then damage the car anything but it was. It was really interesting. I had another situation. I was driving. It was me driving and we were driving down the one freeway out here in los angeles and it was raining and i'm just driving fifty miles an hour. Not the speed limit. Sixty five seventy and our car just starts to spend like literally i know are some driving straight as rain. It's daytime and then the car slowly like slow motion starts to fit. I'm just like oh my god. What happened right. Yeah it literally just just starts to do a circle in the. I'm i'm so motion spinning around all the other cars. I could see the driver staring like what is about to happen right now. And then when we finally get all the way around to the three sixty where we're facing forward again you just start going straight talk like this is the weirdest thing and i. I literally had to pull off the freeway just to get my mind straight as the what just happened so weird your car just like all right time to have some fun like exactly one slow spin and then so wearied. Story i gotta. I've never heard that happened before. We car just like all right time to spend right. Yeah and i didn't turn the wheel. Anything just drive straight down the freeway with my hands. Will it was crazy. Man what would you say is your least favorite weather to drive in Leaf favorite to drive in. I would have to be happy. The first rain right. So i've driven a snow Driving up through the mountains with snow chains the four by four of driven and rain Driven my motorcycle and rain. I think the the scariest is when it first ranked. Because that's when it's like. The new rain mixes with the oil on the on the freeway and the street and it makes me than normal five. Say that would have to be it. That's the scariest. That and i feel like i i think you said you've been to maryland before so here people as soon as it starts sprinkling just can't drive and they just slow down so much that you're like okay. Come on it's just a couple drops exactly and you and the funny thing happens everywhere but they say that out here like california's don't know how to drive in the rain. Right where the draft super fast and we drive super slow but the thing that happens everywhere right like you said in mara's like we don't know what do drive super slow. It's it's crazy speaking of your motorcycle. I know you mentioned her earlier. An interesting experience you had when you're writing it. Let's see i've had a few. I don't even remember what we talked about before. But i said to you guys oh man. So there's this Like if you know anything motorcycle my people that are listening right motorcycles. Bet they'll know what i'm talking about. But you can control the the front and the rear brakes right separate and i remember driving down the freeway and this car like it's kinda rush hours not going too fast. But i'm able to go in between the language problem and this car changing lanes in front of me. The thing about when you hit your brakes is if you hit the rear brakes then life. Think about bicycle a lock up your bicycle skid right but the thing the motorcycle it's like eight hundred pounds what's gonna scare but it's gonna keep going the thing about if you hit the fred breaks then the fourth of just the front brakes locking. Actually 'cause the the entire motorcycle to flip forward up onto the front wheels or the the motorcycle is themselves will will flip over the handlebars so i try to hit both breaks but i ended up hitting more of the front brakes in the rear. And so i go up on just my front tire. And i'm just kind of a little bit getting forward. I didn't hit hard enough to lock it and fly forward by hit enough that my motorcycles now up standing on one wheel and then i'm able to it just you know i'm releasing the break a little bit and then it comes back down on the back with a hit the car and that was probably one of the scariest because all the free win so many cars around but yeah it's you have to be very

Bilibili Moves on Fall Guys Mobile

"Fry Billy. This was from the south. China Morning Post and the article is Billy Billy Ratchets Up China gaming drive with publishing rights for fog is. Fall guys could become the first non animated anime style hit game to be published by Billy Billy and the article goes on to say that Billy Billy plans to release fall guys. As a or plans to publish a mobile version of the title. So. This is their plan. So to make mobile fog is essentially. The Chinese market at. Like that. To me that's that that's interesting. Right at the perfect. It makes a lot of sense to have it on mobile. It's a very natural fit for mobile and honestly like it goes with I, think the aesthetic that goes with the dry by the the motivating factor but find Paul guys as accessibility getting it on a more accessible device fits well into that strategy. I think the news here though sorry Paul is not about fall guys billy, billy. Talk to me about. Agree Billy Billy has been new. Yeah. Out of I mean versus the League rights, right? We talked about two or three podcasts ago where they had they bought the rights to the League of legends like finals a few of like almost all the competitions in China and Indonesia, right? Yeah. That was their first big move. Yup and then, and now they have full guys pickup, which is really substantial pickup given. The success of the title could threaten pub mobile style sort of numbers in China and Russia. There's a place for it to do well for sure and what's more interesting to me as less they got it and more who beat together right now because they be ten cents, a Nazis I'm guessing that is that right? I think I read something or your new girl Yo you would assume who are their competitors which is basically tell sent pulling the strings in both places for sure for the localization publishing, it's Netease tencent would have beat for this. Those were those wouldn't be direct billy billy competitors necessarily right compatibility bit more of a streaming platform. Yeah. Yeah. That's But. But this is I think publishing rights, right? It is crazy. But so is streaming platform moving into publishing rights which I think in and of itself is interesting. Moving into which again goes back to our whole thesis of Watch out streaming platforms when it control the Games for Exclusivity Yup, right? So that's what's going on here billy now has to in their another belt or get into good ones a hyper casual even if it doesn't last long I think it'll last long enough for them to get their to to to do some jobs for them and then league and the thing is like basically everything you WanNa, do in Asia's published by ten Cincinnati's and these guys beating them out you have to wonder was it did this come up so quickly and they just move faster. Did were the other guys asleep at the wheel is this now a pricing war right? Or is there something else a streaming platform can offer? That pure publishing play cat you know so that last one I think is the most interesting. Let me add one more. That's why I ended on it Paul. That's why I I wanted the dialogue. Let me throw out. One more is ten cents just too distracted at this point because we we're big fans of ten cent raise we've been saying are making all the right moves, all the right investments it seems like the the the guys can't be stopped, but at some point, they're so big. Right there. So dominant their their hands are in everything. Now at some point, do you go maybe they just are distracted they're gonna Miss Things because they. As much as they want to be everywhere they have so many things to worry about now. So many plates to Juggle One's going get dropped here and there. Yeah I suspect that a little bit because this like this game was on nobody's radar until it blew up, right. So like I suspect that they might be a little slower, a little less nimble have some other deals in the works they're trying to merge their streaming platforms and all of a sudden you have a more motivated competitor that may be you know gave extremely is by the way probably financially driven to enter the market and maybe very flattering terms this public why not you know why bill is maybe outspending tencent Right. Wow because because M- maybe ten cents has the legal right where ten cents yeah. You come do business with us. Here's why and you don't want the biggest guy. You want the eight hundred pound gorilla in your corner. Okay. Go go play with the small guys. We know. There may be something arrogance

Direct Connections - Chuck & Matt McMurray

"All right introducing my guests for the first edition of direct connections. Chuck mcmurray and his son. Matthew mcmurray guys. Are you doing good good and happy Easter by the way Yeah Happy Easter? Do you guys to before we get into your current mo par endeavors. Let's rewind time a little bit and chocolate start with you. What got you into Mope ours. So it's an interesting thing. There was a A nineteen eighty eight hot rod magazine. Maybe it was car craft and they had the the top ten fastest cars of all time and they were measuring the cars in various road courses in quarter miles and things like that and so you know at the age of thirteen. I was really into like Lamborghini. Coon Tauch Ferraris did not the cars and car that owned the quarter mile for that particular top. Ten that they did was a sixty two Max Wedge Dart Right which is the opposite looking of a Lamborghini coon touch and I was just completely floored that something that was that ugly could be that fast and so that kind of caught my eye and from then on I just started picking up reading magazines and kind of following the Mo par story and of course once you get into the four twenty six Hemi content and you realize how many engines they own in straight line racing. They've been pretty much the dominant force when it comes to top fuel and those types of engines and things and so I stuck with it then Got Into my own cars. When I was fourteen. My Dad let me by a seventy four valiant with three hundred bucks out of a walgreens parking lot in Chicago knew nothing about it. You know toward the slant six out and and learned the hard way and After that got into a sixty six cornet and from then on it was it became pretty natural to me to be able to fix stuff was always kind of good with my hands and just fell in love with the brand which was weird because in the early nineties you know. Mo- par didn't have nearly what they have today. Or what the late sixties so sure it was definitely a hard time to be the underdogs so to speak. Definitely Matthew. What about you? Obviously your dad had to have some sort of influence on you and your love of no go ahead. Go ahead and tell your side of the story. Yes so I mean I've actually got two different peaks Because I'm interested in both old offers annual And the the new generation are and actually both have to drexel cars that he's bought so that goes twelve years old. My Dad Decides to tell me. Hey we're going up to Wisconsin and we're GONNA TALK HUNDRED DOLLAR. Nineteen Sixty six dodge. Coronet THE ROAD. Kill the road kill influence. We actually did have a pretty big influence. And I can't leave that part out because I started watching roadkill with him and that definitely sparked the interest in him to want to go and fight in this car. So it's kind of whole cycle on. We started with them. And so when up to Wisconsin? We bought this car and drove at six hours home and it was incredible. That was we almost did. Maybe almost didn't make it. We ended up. You ended up getting home all right and we spent six months with that car before we decided to try it out for our newest nineteen seventy-three Dodge coronet which we still have today. But then so that's my interest in Olmo parts. That's how it all started and now since day. I'm actually driving a nineteen seventy seven plymouth. Which we bought on Saint Patrick's Day this year green current Saint Patrick's Day in and right around the same time my dad decides to get a two thousand ten dodge challenger Archie. And I'll be honest at first I was not kind of it. I was Kinda weird new car. He's always had cars around and then we decided to take it out to route. Sixty six raceway out here. Julia took it down the track. And I for some reason to seeing the car out on the track comparing its other cars. My Dad was out there I was like this is so awesome just the track experience everything about it and pretty much that moment on just seeing the cargo down the track during during a testing tune into it was awesome. Was that your first time at the drag strip. No I've been since I was like three dragged him out every summer and spring we would go down there and go to the MCA events and took him to the Shows when he was so young. The only thing you wanted to do is by matchbox cars and free ice cream. I think the influence of seeing enough of it you know. He started to kind of pick up the hobby and took to it. Pretty naturally right on right on well now that we have a little bit of your background. Let let me ask you a couple of questions. We get into your businesses journey. What do you guys think about? The current mopey marketplace as far as where pricing is for not only project mopeds that are classics but also fully restored Mo- parse. How do you feel about that? You know it's interesting Because you know we've done worked for retailers in the automotive market we've kind of followed where the investment Moped level cars have gone since you know after the economy crashed in two thousand nine and it really got inflated right. It was almost frightening to think that if you wanted to go out and get a four forty four a barrel automatic body that you're GONNA be spending at least forty thousand dollars for something so that was crazy but I am happy that the market is recognized that these cars important enough to put the money into them and take care of them because so many of them just got left out in the weeds and crushed and everything else. So it's been interesting to see kind of how that's continued to change over time but what? I found what I found really interesting where you know. The price of the aftermarket is gone. It's actually a lot cheaper now than it was so many years ago to be able to build engines and get parts. There's you know we went to. Sima last Fall and you know you go to the Diamond Piston booth. And there's four different piston types just for the four hundred in a low deck engines. There was stuff we dreamt of twenty five years ago so I think that's great and the new stuff has certainly respond generation in the market You know it's challenging that hell cats. Are you know to get into one now? If you're going to get into a used one you're probably looking at forty forty five thousand but the demons you know. They're still at that inflated price is you know even with all the incentives you're still looking at a seventy thousand dollars. Eighty thousand carbajal are also buying a ten second. Turnkey Quebec killer so I guess that does make sense. But it's it's really exciting time and I think It has never been good to be a mope or guys it is at least in the last couple of years and my personal. I definitely agree. What about you matthew? What do you think about? These prices are the crazy. Or what for me definitely barely for anything that any of these cars I see him? I'll go on facebook marketplace a lot. Just dream you know. Look at Ebadi's I'll look at peabody charters and stuff and I'm just thinking to myself like if it weren't for the fact that he was into the stuff I would just continue to dream and but I think that it's words at is pretty good because if you look at the comparison of other domestic vehicles New prices used prices. They're they're pretty expensive and I mean it's when you're in the restoration market alone. You're looking at expensive prices anyways. When you're going to get into a project you know you're GONNA be spending money but I would definitely say that. For where things are you know. Where the economy is. I think that the prices are very reasonable and and for some cars for some. I feel like you know the demon. The inflation should go down. I'm hoping it goes down as I just I mean. It's an incredible carbon. I just one hundred and thirty nine hundred now. Let me ask you both this. Do you think that 'cause I I've been seeing almost a divide between modern moped enthusiasts and the the old school guys for lack of a better term. Do you think it takes a little bit of fun out of the equation when you go out him by say a demon or even a hell cat or a hell cat red eye because they're already fast out of the box so like you know you dump will say fifty thousand or a hundred thousand plus on a car you know unless your pockets are really deep. I mean how much modification are you really going to do? How much fun are you really going to have aside from just turning the key in going? Do you think that those cars take the fun out of it you know? It's it's a twenty to say that because we've we've really Invested in in both old and new and having a two thousand fourteen thirty eight that ran he got an eleven ninety. Three out of it with soft tires out of the box mods and It was neat. Because you know out of the box you can go that fast but at the same time. There really wasn't a lot that you could touch easily. If you'RE GONNA make one modification you need at least a tune and with a tune in a few modifications if you put the Karni Eleven's then you need to start trason Dr Line making improvements and so it's really never just a bolt on. It's a few thousand bucks so you know I'd say that it's reinvigorated the market but I would agree that there seems to be kind of a divide between the folks that did restoration and were part of this for thirty or forty years and what the new market has done but in some ways it has kind of taken the fun out of. I think you know when when you can get in a red eye in run ten teens or high nines to do that in a body would require a lot more. Yeah so it makes it easier if you are not mechanically inclined and you don't have tools but at the same time it has reset the bar for. What is a fast car? So it's a it's interesting right but they're also forty six hundred pounds. So you know the safety equipment. My concern with a lot of those cars. What happens if you do have something happen at the end? I mean forty six hundred pound car versus twenty. Eight hundred pound. Cars is a lot more inertia

Ruminating on Food

"We start with an interview. Anthony Davis now guest today on the sustainable futures report you'll the CEO of big bomb which is a not for profit organization which is being trading for some twenty years. As I understand that your role is to encourage healthy eating and sustainable agriculture correct. So how do you do that? Well we when I first set up. I'm a fifth generation farmer and set up the side. Because we were growing onions in Norfolk at them. Every time we went to sell them we could get about one hundred pounds a tonne and two days later. We'd see the onions on the TESCO shelved for about eight hundred pounds a tonne Food supply chain has is giving as Dale and consumes about Dale because If anyone turned out femme Australians we'd be happy to sell them off the process signet so the big bomb is all about reconnecting. People buy that through came from at helping to sell directing consumers by right and we're hoping that process that people would find us about three day on eight health late because they buy fresh local food. You've been doing quantitative what with schools leave. That's right we say that To change people to cooking and buying food we really need to act on the influences and we say the main influences as children because if you can get children eighteen lane that parents wanting healthy fade away. It'll encourage parents to eat better food as well. So what you're doing with the children in the schools well we ran a project in Leicester where we went in every week to help the kid. Some grow seats In plant pulse and that we built some raise bets implanted fruit trees and these children lentil about growing food and when it was ready they were really enthused to taste it and Actually Cook with it and we had this added incentives that they could then take. Will they'd grown to the local shop and the local shop and sell it for them and says cool crop for the shop and it was really brilliant way of introducing children about food and growing only plans to roll it out further into other schools across the country. We absolutely love to because We Got Twenty six thousand schools in this country and we found out that fourteen thousand of them will go to veg. Patch and a m Or Garden as would actually quite easy the mold getting both but unfortunately it's not on the curriculum and at the end of the year with the School Esta. We went to the teacher. Teaching nights as the VEGGIE PATCH. We managed to get a lot of them. Academic Subjects Fetch. So are you going to do it? And she said On anything what's on the creation and unfortunately waving running petition for a long time about getting school food growing grant and cookie on the curriculum and The the government with allstate only measure scope foments on a level massive English and. That's a big mistake. So we all lobbying and we'd love to do more but we're restricted by government mind. That's a dead end for the moment. Unfortunately them while there is a new food and farming policy coming out at the moment and being worked on and we hope that with the evidence week with another number of other organizations that it will change and the government will say the opportunity. Because if you can if you can change able to eat healthy food I think at the moment. Twenty percent of energy as spend is on food related disease so we can get paid eighteen healthy food and if we get infants at school eating healthy food we could see some massive savings Indiana chess. I just told me that again. Twenty percent direction of. Nhs expenditure is on food related disease. Yeah and I think ten percent diabetes and the rest is Be St in Hop. Z's and Allah food related problems. So Yeah Yeah. That's a lot can be done. And I think the time is ripe with Brexit and with people about mole and with the The massive amounts of food aid programs on TV like Brexit. To this will start thinking about whether food comes from and We have kind of news of out sanctions and import duties on some products. Hopefully things like Kim American. None cheap food chlorinated chicken and processed pool come from low animal welfare factories in America said that they will be on. The tariffs kept type thing. Yeah okay Ob some GT but Mr Trump doesn't want much self-aware going to have to look into domestic food production. We're GONNA have to and hopefully when people see this. Trait will happening with cheat American food. They'll stop thinking about will feed they should buy and when they to seek market. They'll think about whether three comes from clear. Labelling which will be really good at. But the I need Kinda Is someone who is produced locally. And he's a he's reputations in state which is where all Lakewood food map comes in. Not Yes I was gonNA come onto that single food map. Tell us about not because it seems to be a cover the whole country. I looked at my lug layer. Your canoe got five or six produces listed so tell me more about it well. It's constantly evolving constantly. Updating map that Tim at eight and a half thousand local food outlets on it and every outlet has a username password to add pictures video description and even build themselves online shop if they want to do now is we share all matt with many websites we can so we'd love Yorkshire Websites to have on that and actually be adding to it and the idea. Is that when you have it? Looks like it's you'll 's and the mole websites have the map the mold as who will not benefit because they can update page updates. Don't allow the websites so I'm to help that process we becoming am a co-op community benefit society. We're sending a message that everyone can deposits and if its success. We share in the SUCCESS FOR ALL RANDOM. A lot of these companies that Backed by venture capitalists Orem investors. Who saw cancel the money?

A Brief History Of The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

"Rain stuff lauren. Boko bomb here on the fourth Thursday of the month the same day that most Americans gather around the dining table to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. The macy's Thanksgiving Day parade marches through the streets of New York City city elaborate floats giant helium balloons marching bands acrobats and celebrities create a carnival atmosphere for more than eighty years. The parade has has drawn spectators who lined the streets cheer on the participants covering two and a half miles. A three hour spectacle runs from nine. AM to noon. The holiday event has grown and grown over time from a small parade of floats and live animals organized by macy's employees into large-scale annual tradition to this day though apart from performing coming talent all other parade participants such as balloon handlers are macy's employees and their family and friends. The parade showcases more than eight thousand participants pence and crowds of more than three point. Five million spectators crammed Manhattan streets for close up view. Another fifty million watch the prayed on TV. So how did we you get here. macy's department store celebrates its one hundred and sixty first anniversary in two thousand nineteen store staged. Its first Thanksgiving Day parade in nineteen twenty twenty four that year it was called the macy's Christmas parade and it featured three floats pulled by horses. Four bands and zoo animals from the central park zoo including camels donkeys elephants and goats. Santa Claus was last in the lineup. A tradition that continues to this day it was all staged by end at the request. Request of macy's employees many of whom had just emigrated to America from Europe along to celebrate their new home in nineteen twenty seven the gigantic balloons. That are now. The signature element of the parade made their first appearance with the help of helium. The balloon replaced the zoo animals. That were frightening to some children and the first balloons included cartoon tune characters like Felix the cat at the conclusion of the parade. The giant balloons were released into the air in nineteen twenty eight. macy's began offering the one hundred dollar reward for any returned balloons which were fixed with the return address label in nineteen thirty one pilot. Colonel Clarence e chamberlain snagged a balloon with his airplanes wings leading to a ban on retrieval by airplanes the following year and after the nineteen thirty two parade another pilot attempted to capture a balloon in nearly crashed leading macy's to discontinue releasing the balloon loons at the parade's end in nineteen thirty four celebrities became an important element of the parade but senior actor. Eddie Cantor joining the event that year. The the Mickey Mouse Helium Balloon was also introduced that you're parade goers from nineteen forty two to nineteen forty four. The prey was cancelled because of the shortage of helium and rubber during world world. War Two those three years. The only time that the celebration has ever been called off when the prey returned nineteen forty five. It was broadcast on television for the first time time and was bigger than earlier versions. But the floats didn't achieve their current spectacle status until nineteen sixty nine when Manfred Bass began creating them best asked designed to them so that they could be flattened their trip through the Holland tunnel they were then reassembled during the predawn hours of the parade. Today macy's begins planning planning for the parade at least a year in advance and includes float and balloon creation celebrity booking volunteer coordination and training for clowns and balloon handlers. As the prayed it grows closer. The preparations get more intense in two thousand. Nineteen macy's celebrating. Its Ninety Third Parade with twenty six floats sixteen giant helium character balloons and forty heritage and novelty balloons and eleven marching bands. But let's talk about those balloons a former tootsie roll factory in Hoboken New Jersey just across the river from New York City. The balloons are created by the macy's parade studio. It all starts with a pencil sketch. Aerodynamic and engineering consultants assist calculations to make sure the balloon will fly properly exact scale replicas. One made out of clay and one painted model are fashioned before the actual balloon is cut out fabric. Each balloon. has several chambers and includes a zipper and inflation device and a high pressure valve flight. Inflation and deflation tests are run and cosmetic adjustments are made. Finally finally the balloon can appear in the parade up to a year after the process began balloons. These days are constructed of polyurethane though they used to be made of rubber since the switch from air to helium these behemoth balloons have coasted along with a big dose of help from Volunteer Balloon Wrangler. But it hasn't always been that easy to keep the balloons afloat. In nineteen fifty-eight the balloons were filled with air and hoisted by cranes onto trucks. Due to a helium shortage and poor weather conditions kept the balloon from being inflated at all in nineteen seventy one the balloons dimensions vary but most are about five six stories high and somewhere around sixty feet long and thirty feet wide. Each balloon needs around Ninety D.. Handlers in all their around two three thousand balloon handlers for the prayed these handlers must weigh at least one hundred and twenty pounds and be in good health of those only a few hundred team leaders are required to attend training though all are invited. Training includes lessons on dynamics geometry and physics then Blantyre's practice handling one of the big balloons on a field. The team leaders include an overall leader pilot captain and two drivers a police officer marches with each balloon own handlers. Hold the ropes to guide the balloon and each balloon is also tethered to two eight hundred pound. Utility vehicles instruments that measure the speed of wind. called called a Momma's I think are mounted on Poles at key points along the route and each one is monitored with a portable computer by a police officer in a New York City office of Emergency Management Representative. Well before the prayed begins objects that could obstruct balloons including arms of lamp posts traffic signal. Polls streetlights and trees are either altered or removed on the eve of the parade. The balloons and floats are brought. To New York City. Setup begins by six. AM Thanksgiving Day. The balloons and floats are ready to go. And prayed. Great participants take their places for the nine. AM prayed start. After the parade floats are mmediately disassembled. Balloons deflated. An all returned to their warehouse in hoboken again.

Will artificial scarcity of library e-books push sales?

"Ninety four percent of libraries offer evokes borrowers but now Macmillan one of the five five biggest book publishers in the. US says it's going to limit each library to just one copy for the first eight weeks after publication so get ready for longer waits to borrow awesome libraries and their users a protesting the move when I last checked nearly two hundred thousand people had signed an online petition against it. Just men west is a librarian in Vermont. She says the move is reflective of a lot of upheaval in the book. World Right now I think publishers are wondering what to do about their revenue model As more and more people go many more different places for content than just the Bookstore Amazon encourages them to lower their prices and lower their prices. Because they're kind of the eight eight hundred pound gorilla in this whole thing and so they're looking at ways. They can serve recoup some of the money they lose and in many ways some publishers. Look at libraries if we're sort of taking money from them by lending the books instead of making people buy them and so it McMillan is basically taking a risk that if they enforce this artificial scarcity by not letting libraries lend their books more people will gotten by their books. Macmillan CEO has said in interviews that the e book marketplace's kind of like that for motion pictures in the new releases. Have all this excitement around them for the first few weeks. And that's when they make most money through sales and they need that money to reinvest in new e books on new authors and illustrators in the whole ecosystem isn't that fair Libraries are willing to pay for these books. I don't understand why they are looking to libraries and saying oh well we know you want to buy dozens if not hundreds of copies of these books right after they come out but instead we think we're going to put the squeeze he's on your patrons and in fact one of our sources of free advertising now that there's fewer bookstores and not take your money in order to try to make it this other way way. Can you suggest a change. That would keep everybody happy. That would give libraries enough copies of the books but also keep publishers happy. I don't understand what the problem was originally sell. L. Books to libraries they are free advertising. McMillan is trying to get patrons to buy books from them directly and I actually number one. Don't think it's GonNa work out that way for them. And number two think it puts a squeeze specifically on more disadvantage patrons in libraries people. The WHO maybe can't read a print book for various reasons. Those people are not necessarily going to be the people that are going to go and purchase those books and so it's really doing is denying certain readerships access to their books. Who would otherwise be happy to have them through the library? Who would be happy to pay for them? And just give us tonight. Era of how important a publisher Macmillan is. I mean how much will patrons of a lab refill this change. Well it's GonNa be really interesting right now. Libraries are just kind of I'm sitting in waiting this thing The embargo basically went into effect. A week ago Some major library systems can county notably in Washington state has decided added to just not purchase McMillan books. Because they're grumpy about this and I don't blame them but we're not sure. I think if you asked most patrons you know what does McMillan publish us who their authors. They wouldn't necessarily know and it puts libraries in this really awkward position of having to explain this relatively complicated situation about the marketplace to patrons who really just want a good book. I'm hoping libraries can react especially by buying more print materials. But we're really not sure how it's going to affect affect readership and attitude towards Macmillan or the other publishers or e books genuinely until we see how this plays out. Do you think there's a chance here that Macmillan might end up backpedaling on this. I do I think it's entirely possible Sergeant the CEO of Macmillan was recently speaking at a meeting of the heads of state libraries. OBREE's like every state has a state library or department of Libraries within the state and the heads of those state. Libraries are kind of grumpy about this too. I mean really what it's about is access right. And this withholding access from the public in a general sense so he kinda trotted out his old. Like this. Why it's a better deal and we're totally trying to help libraries and You know that first copy we let you have is cheap. And it doesn't expire so that's super cool like restating his statement statement and I think the state librarians in many cases weren't having it they pushed back in their kind of friendly mannerly way and sergeant did kind of open the door for. We'll maybe this isn't the right way to do things which is not anything we've heard him say previously. And so I see that as kind for a ray of hope. They basically Based this embargo on kind of an experiment they did with one of their imprints which was tore books. They tried to smaller. Smaller embargo is kind of a test but tore books also publishes a lot of science fiction. Fantasy they have a rabid fan base. Who may be would purchase those books out if they couldn't borrow them at the library but realistically I don't think that's GonNa Happen for the rest of Macmillan's front list and so I think what we're hoping is this? Also also embargo experiment will not go the way they want and maybe they can sort of dial it back to having something. That's more in line with the way other. Publishers appear to be making this happen and also making it work for them from a business perspective. So it'll work for us from a library

"Will the democratic presidential candidates will debate tonight in Westerville Ohio for a race that seems static for a long time suddenly there is a lot going on here's NPR national political correspondent Mara license for the first time since he entered the race Joe Biden has lost his clear front runner position Elizabeth Warren is on the rise and Bernie Sanders just had a heart attack so you wouldn't blame Democrats of their heads are spinning if you look at the democratic race now you'd have to say that Elizabeth Warren is the stock that you would buy five may be stock that you hold on to for a while longer but you're getting nervous that's David Axelrod who is Barack Obama's top strategist Democrats are nervous because Biden is being pummeled by millions of dollars of trump attack ads pushing a false narrative that Biden and his son did something illegal in Ukraine when Biden was the vice president that says axle rod is the eight hundred pound gorilla that will certainly come up in Ohio tonight most of what the president has said has been widely debunked but there is this question of you know why his son was on the role of this Ukrainian company while he was vice president I don't know that he can get away with swatting that question aside as he has Democrats are worried that even though the trump charges are false the president will get a kind of liars dividend his multi million dollars worth of attack ads on TV and social media amplify the charges and so doubt among Democrats not that Biden is guilty but that he'll be weakened as a candidate still the attacks or an opportunity for Biden says terra McAllen the founder of acronym and democratic digital advocacy organization I think that this provides biting potentially the best opportunity they're ever going to get to that after this real fight between him and frowned and demonstrate his strength and electability against trump in the general election after wrestling with how best to handle trump's attacks last week Biden decided to get more aggressive we all laughed when he said he could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoots someone and get away with it it's no joke the shooting holes in the constitution and we can not let him get away with it well my name has been figuring out how to handle trump Elizabeth Warren has continued her steady rise and not just because she's run a really good primary campaign with money organization and grassroots enthusiasm but also says democratic pollster Stan Greenberg because she tapped into a pent up desire among Democrats for government action to solve big problems like corporate corruption income inequality and climate change he is constantly talking about things government can do Democrats want an activist government and they're looking for after being suppressed by a decade of tea party dominance and now trump dominance Warren stands to benefit if Biden can't jujitsu trump's attacks to strengthen his own position she also stands to benefit of Sanders heart condition keeps him on the sidelines but with warns rise comes scrutiny which she has not had to face so far as one centrist Democrat quipped Warren has a plan for everything except how she'll be Donald Trump and that's another thing Democrats are worried about says terra McAllen how she is going to get the most voters including independence and swing voters who who don't want to see another four years of trump but maybe aren't as excited about the more progressive policies that she champions that really is is the challenge worries among Democrats that Warren is too far left to win a general election spiked last week when Warren gave this flip response on CNN when asked by an L. G. B. T. Q. activist what she would say to someone who believes marriage is between one man and one woman I don't wanna say than just merry one one she waited a bit and then headed this snarky comment you can find one sounds like he was saying anyone with those beliefs is a loser or maybe just deplorable in addition to worries about warrants electability and Biden's ability to perform Democrats are also watching an intramural primary going on you could call it the Biden understudy battle that's where Peter the judges the candidate to watch says David Axelrod but the judges still pulling in the single digits but he came in third in last quarter's fundraising behind Warren and Sanders but ahead of Biden if Biden were to stumble who could take up that late people to church is clearly now angling for that now he is more moderate in temperament and in policy then certainly than Warren or Sanders and he's been more pronounced about his differences with them lately so tonight's debate takes place against a backdrop of a lot of churn in the democratic race with three and a half months before any Democrat votes or caucuses a lot can still change Mar Eliason NPR news Washington

Antonio Brown's dispute with the NFL over a helmet, explained

"One of the things they enjoy your brown had said we've heard other players to Tom Brady talk about having to change how much food on comfortable but one of the things that brown said specifically with about limiting peripheral vision is it really that different when you're talking about switching from one model of a helmet and and you mentioned using it for a long time he used it his entire career now almost a decade to now another one yeah absolutely I mean he's gonna I would if I were him I'd try on you know fifty different helmets making sure I found what I could see if it is that you're right it is a completely different feeling I remember I remember when I I got pulled off special teams for short time to play wide receiver is going to be a regular thing I had to change face masks they couldn't see well enough out of the bottom of my face mask to catch the ball or track and it's like so and even that was the kind of bothered me yep vision is the rock this the thing it's fit how it feels and how much it weighs is a big thing for a lot of guys and also division is critical you've got to be able to see out of it and if there's a blind spot in it or if you can't you know can't see is already in your peripheral D. at your vision field as you want or if you have been able to in the past really makes you feel vulnerable because you really feel like you can't see everybody and that's the that's not a comfortable feeling when you're running down the field so yeah I mean Asian and fit our critical elements for it how much it weighs plus even if you get one that fits in it and it feels good it's light enough to make sure that doesn't make you feel like it's too heavy even then there's a breaking in process for most helmets guys feel like you got where the think three weeks before it actually feels like your helmet and nobody wants to go through that maybe like breaking into a new baseball or softball glove it feels so strange when you first put it on yeah if you'll stick height and there's you know some parts of it she is your stolen and if you take it off and you got you know a believes marks on your forehead your temples in the back of your head it goes back to you know it it just takes a long time for your body to get used to it and for that helmet to feel like it's yours it's it's like any other new thing and it would close gonna have to get used to it no question but in in the long run it's it beat the benefit is obvious other precaution is obvious and it's going to be as it's going to be a balance for the helmet companies to make one the players love to wear an as yet it's safe because it can be Steve Tasker along time bill with us here after hours on CBS sports radio so I I think a lot of us laughed we heard the stories about Antonio brown trying to repaint his old helmet and sneak it onto the field during O. T. A.'s he did have some time to try to get adjusted to it and and instead was trying to sneak is old helmet on to the field but as someone who played you mention guys really not liking to adjust does that surprise you then that he would tend to do whatever he could to get back on the field yeah I mean that you're not going to get it done I mean it can be you can paint it you know go from black to silver that kind of thing to get paid it give it a coat of paint not too much gets by the equipment guys because what players don't understand is when the when the stadiums empty and they're off doing their thing the equipment guys are hanging to help with the put them up on the racks they examine every piece of equipment to make sure it's okay in fact a lot of equipment guys will examine the help was so close that they find a hairline crack or a screw or of sitting that is broken they'll replace it without ever telling the player you know and so yeah there there's no way Antonio was going to get on the field with anything other than that and then a regulation at home and it just doesn't happen one of the things that the NFL special especially this commissioner Roger Goodell has has made his platform in the last ten years has been about fifty with a new research the regulations that have come out the rules changes for sure and so I'm glad that the arbitrator drew up a hard line here and didn't make an exception for Antonio brown I'm not even sure if that would have been possible but how different is that from when you played in the nineties and a retired in late ninety but how different is it to have the league so vocal about this kind of stuff very different hi I don't remember in my career played thirteen years I don't remember ever having a situation where the the league was vocal about player safety like that I can't remember any instance where the leak took a stance outwardly or publicly that of that nature it's a different climate no question they have their thinking to Inc and does the league for thinking that long term when you got kids do you want to start playing the game so they can funnel into your league and keep you supplied with great players they got to start with their kids and moms don't want their kids play in in a game that is unsafe fundamentally and so when the league and and it's true to that when the NFL atop the stands and starts to take safety seriously it trickles very quickly down through the lower ranks in football and and it'll get down to kids leagues and and high school college and and and the like very quickly so I think the league's doing the right thing but you're you're correct in in stating it's it's of late it has not been a life long observation of mine in the league interested at all in favor say do this is a recent development and but I do think it's for the best do you think it's sincere I think so I think the league I think the league also feels like it it's as many black guys in the league takes because they're the the the eight hundred pound gorilla be nobody's cheer for you know I mean everybody they like to players the players and what does that they they don't appreciate the discipline that the league hands out they don't appreciate the no fun league there appreciate the lack of spontaneity they think it's a little bit too but that most people do generally speaking but I think on this part I think is one place where the leak could do this and not take a black eye for it and I think that acted it down some levels got if you've got the commissioner doing something that even the fans like in in even if the players

So a lot of people root against Alabama. I get that. I understand it. Guess what about Alabama's eight hundred pound gorilla? Clemson's about seventy seventy five. Alabama doesn't win a dead some championship. Clemson does. They were number one and two coming into the year. They were number one and two at the end of the year. They flopped too for one and one for two with clemson's big win. They will be number one and two going into next year as well.

The goal of this mission is to understand more about the interior of Mars NPR's. Joe palca is gonna be at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory here in southern California for the landing right now joins us from Pasadena. Good morning, Joe. Good morning, David. All right. So what's the latest on this mission here? Well, the latest seems to be that yesterday afternoon. There was a tiny course correction now, this probe has traveled more than three hundred million miles. And it was about eleven miles off target, which I'd say is pretty good. That's not bad. No. It's not bad. But not good enough for NASA. So they had one tiny burst of the engine. They called it actually a burp. And now, they're estimating. After tracking the. And its consequences of this of this rocket firing. They think they're about a mile or two away from the target. So pretty close. I just learned something from your that burp is a space term. That's that's very clearly. So make a distinction for me. This is not a Rover mission. Right. I mean, that's something we often hear about. No once this puppy lands at staying. It's not going anywhere. Okay. So it lands on the surface of this planet. And as I mentioned the goal is to study the interior of Mars. What are we actually talking about? Well, yeah, it's kind of I think it's kind of strange that you have I think sitting on the surface yet. It's gonna tell you all about the interior of Mars. But here's the deal, it it has onboard very sensitive seismometers and in southern California. I'm sure you know, what a seismometers is a device for measuring grip quakes. Yeah. These are going to measure Mars quakes are the equivalent of earthquakes, and the thing is that you can tell from the shape of the waves that these quakes generate what kind of rocks or what kind of materials they're going through and something about the core of the planet and the interior structure of the planet. And so literally this mission looks into the planet. Whereas all the other missions have pretty much scratched the surface as it were. So that's the big difference here learning potentially a lot about this planet, which could be really important. So when is this actually landing actually set for when is this all going to happen? So it's eleven fifty seven Pacific time this morning and before it lands. It has to go through this six and a half minutes of of a torturous land. Landing sequence it comes in. It has a heat shield. That's gonna take off most of the speed than a parachute that opens up when it's still going supersonic than twelve small rockets will combine and the whole process takes about six and a half minutes, and it goes. From twelve thousand three hundred miles an hour when it hits the top of the atmosphere to five miles an hour. And then it drops the laughs last few feet at five miles per hour. But you know, that's not so bad. It's not gonna break anything. This sounds really dramatic though. I mean is there going to be a moment when you'll actually be able to report that this thing is safely there and beginning its work. Well, yeah, I mean, in fact that well there's a couple of ways one is that about seven minutes they say after it lands. It will send out a tone. That says I'm here all is. Well, you know, I'll check back with you later. But there's something interesting on this mission that they've never had before when insight launched back in may the rocket. Also carried too small spacecraft called cube sets and these cubesats were designed to relay the telemetry from insight back to earth. So they're gonna fly over as inside his landing. And it's possible that will get you know, moment to moment. Updates on how the craft is doing awesome. Stuff. Then peers.

"Eight hundred pounds. There's always some some catch. So the the simplicity of doing that. And I love the fact that they didn't go out and build an app and say we have to engage with customers every day. They came out with simple terms, a good interest rate a well-known brands that have some prestige to it. And I'm sure they just turning the tap and lending because most flow flowing, I completely agree. And I think that it's backed by Goldman Sachs gives people that security to put them on the end. But I think that simplicity of that of the way that they've done at is is is the reason why the by the getting. Attraction, and it's just an really easily understood value propositions delivering value using the going signs brands like translates to sort of normal people on the street because I'm not sure there as recognized as Santan diary, loyal because it's backed by a Bank and people just feel save with putting them on. And I think it helps I don't so your hundred thousand customers may not be the mass market. It may be your finance notes who have heard of Goldman who would be picking that up and finding out about it. And also, the people that have sort of the nodes on the kind of the price comparison websites, but they will tell their friends, and then it will draw. What I'd like about this is it's an example of a really big Bank using that brunt. Well, so they went off the col- brand. They did something that was close, but not that was different. And the only other example, that I could think of immediately all the one that came to my mind was in the sixties when Barclays BarclayCard like a massive roaring successes sub. Brand that gave them permission to do something different that they call business didn't do. And so this should be a case study for others to learn from. Yeah, I can definitely see that. It's going to be interesting as the I wonder if people flex a little bit of see we've we've seen over the last couple of weeks months. Oh, come out with one percent savings. Right. I haven't seen any statistics coming out of how well let's doing yet. But I wonder if you know, a more sort of mainstream high street Bank matches this rate in terms of the doing because for me, I still feel like instant access savings accounts is sort of nothing new in for a pound did come in match it. But they it was the catchers. Right. So they said we'll give you the same rate. If you put in a minimum of X, and you have this term of y before you can take it out so much ING it isn't as easy as it seems. It's not just having the rate. It's those three variables that I think a key. And we've not seen anybody much yet. I don't know if they can. Frankly, the on boarding experience is brutally simple. Well, marcus. Let's see what happens next on this one. Alright for account right now. He's a little bit distracted over the next next hour on this one, then we'll decide to five minute account opening process. This episode. Back to you in a second. All right. Well, while Allie applies from office account. Let's move onto the next story. So this is one in finance. This is rule Bank of Scotland to launch digital Bank for SME's. You know, something about this big Bank. The Royal Bank of Scotland. Tiny little organization up in Scotland somewhere. I think you know, something about today. Please tell us about it. All right. We'll the story says that Ruben Casse Cullen has become the first of the UK's big on street Bank. Glenda's lenders are not sure why it's references lenders to open standalone digital account. So we know quite a lot about this eleven s and we've been reasonably busy and probably me and Jason of been reasonably absent from this podcast for for some time because we've been up to no good over there. Sorting this out which has been fun. So Alison rose the RBS head of commercial and private banking has actually spent a little bit of time with explaining what she wanted to leave this and she where she sees coming.

"The top one hundred independent financial advisers and actually now for the seventh year in a row. My goodness. But you know, what without our clients. We would be nowhere. So I give that one to them. We have a great show lined up for you. We're gonna talk about of course, the eight hundred pound gorilla in the room. Right. The big drop in the market that we saw on Wednesday and Thursday, and boy did that illustrate how quickly the market can change its mind how quickly it can turn. And how far it can. Fall in very short order, and there are lessons to be learned about that. And in fact, I was talking to a relatively new client. And they were asking me. How does this? How is this feel right now versus two thousand seven, you know, before the big drop that came in two thousand and eight and as you guys know, we told everyone listening to this show and our clients everybody in November of oh seven to sell to get out of the stock market. And so he was asking me is this different now than it was back, then and and I thought you know, what that's actually a great question to talk about on the radio show. So I'm gonna Asser his question to with you is this two thousand and eight all over again precursor. Well, you know, what those of you who are old enough to remember Matt Dillon from gun smoke. There was an episode that I'll never forget and the famous line, or at least for me that he said he said man, who's not afraid he's a fool. Okay. So you don't want to be a fool. So we'll talk about that. Now, also as I said, you know, we specialize in working with people who are retired or retiring soon. Most of our clients are over fifty. And so we talk about risks that you face one of the things as a financial planner. You know, we want you to enjoy the best retirement that you can't we want you to have your second childhood without parental supervision. We want you to go play. Enjoy whatever it is that you want your retirement to look like at the same time though to make that happen. I believe we have to protect you from the risks that could take it away from you. Okay. So this week I want to talk about where we we're on a series of the eighteen risks faced in retirement. And I wanna talk about number six which is called frailty risk, which is essentially the risk that your cognitive skills deteriorate as you get older. And how do you plan ahead for that? And unfortunately, it is something you need to plan for now. Speaking of planning for stuff, one of the most foundational basic question that you have to think about if you haven't started collecting social security already is when do you apply? And so we're going to talk about that. This week. We're going to have a segment on when to apply for social security, and we may not be able to get through all the questions that I've lined up that I think you might be interested in. So if we don't we'll continue it next week as well. Now, one of the things I mentioned at the top of this show was that, you know, we work as I said with people who are retired or retiring soon for the most part. And so we believe that maintaining what you spent your life building your investments your your net worth is job number one. If we're going to be able to generate the income to give you the lifestyle that you want. Okay. So therefore, we believe that by hold which is you buy a bunch of investments, high quality staff, and you create.

And the second is if people wanna Google, Dan Gable on gresh. In there's a short video I put on my blog that hits this point exactly. And I'm giving examples from different disciplines because I is cross disciplinary. It's not just investing startups. Dan Gable is the the most legendary wrestling coach. Certainly of the last I would say hundred years in the United States also won a gold medal in the nineteen seventy two Munich Olympics without having a single point scored on him that just does not happen. And this video will show you a lecture that he's giving one of his athletes after his athlete tied. And he said, you lost him twice before you just didn't want to lose. He said, you never win that way. You gotta tie, and that's that's exactly why you gotta tie and the differences is just so powerful. It's worth. I just thought taking a second to to underscore because I think. It's really critical distinction that you brought up. It's like, I think about it. I love to ski and I, I had this instructor once I was complaining about going through powder and I was I was saying how it really hurt my my thought is he's like, my thighs are burning and he looks at me.

Suddenly you're just gliding and it's scary in that moment when you lean forward because you feel like you're gonna fall, and yet it gives you so much more control and it gives you so much.
