The relationship between the princess of pop and her father coming under renewed scrutiny as the freebritney movement continues calling for an end to her conservatorship functioning woman.

He has collaborated with her to help her regain custody of her children. He has brought her finances back from disaster in his created a safe environment for her to live her life the way she wants away from the media that caused her so much pain. Britney spears was only sixteen years old when she catapulted to stardom in nineteen ninety eight with their multi. Platinum hit baby one more time. She came across his strong young high school in her first video. She's very pretty and sexy a late teenager and that was an image that she built on over the next several years and she became one of the biggest stars in the world.

Visiting kevin feather line at his home. The kids meant the world to britney and she wanted us here. Kids and kevin said no part of the reason we wanted to do. The film was to to pull back from that frame and show you show you. What's outside of it. And one of the things we found is that she was going through a custody battle during this time. That following year after two hospitalizations brittany's father jamie assumed control over his daughter's estate along with an outside trust think people really know conservatorship as much as attention. It's gotten in recent months. I don't think people knew that it was weird for a young person to be under one. Let alone be under one for thirteen years. Thirteen years later the court mandated conservatorship. Still in effect denying the thirty nine year old control of her estate. Prompting the question. Why if britney through her lawyer though is asking that jamie. Her father not be a part of her conservatorship. Why does jamie then still insist on being her conservative.

I pulled out all of my jackets in the next day. It was really hot. It was very confusing and last november. Her attorney telling a judge. My client has informed me that she is afraid of her father adding she will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career. Can you explain why britney's lawyer is saying. She doesn't want her dad in charge of her finances anymore. Throughout twenty twenty brittany and her father had many conversations and in fact early on in the pandemic they spent two weeks with other family members. Hunker down in louisiana and they spend a lot of time together and in that time brittany never expressed those words to her father. She's never asked him to step aside. Why she then wouldn't just go onto social media and say hey guys. I don't need to be freed. Any time britney wishes to enter conservatorship. She can have her attorney file a petition to terminate it. She's never exercised this right in the past thirteen years. But for the of the freebritney movement like dustin strand the question remains what really is happening in britney's life tomorrow. We have our free pretty rally for years. Strand has traveled from phoenix to los angeles. Bree support you. We've known for a long time as conservative has been just. The next conservatorship hearing is expected in march a fight about which britney herself remains publicly
Philadelphia Eagles trade QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts for two draft picks
"Story of the day. The Eagles have traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts and oh my goodness. It made me very happy. I was so excited. There's a lot to unpack. I want to start though by mentioning a weird thing first. In the 2016 NFL draft the number and overall pick was Jared Goff. The number two overall pick was Carson Wentz. And both have been traded away from the teams. They were drafted by 19 days apart. Just a weird quick doesn't happen very often the guy a number and overall pick a number 2 overall pick gets traded away. Especially not the quarterback position. Let alone almost in just over two weeks apart from each other. That's crazy. Pretty wild now after the trade the Eagles have a 33.8 Million Dead money. Salary cap charge for the 2021 NFL season what that means I will get into that in a minute. First of all, that's actually by the way the most ever to have dead money cap. I guess charge or penalties by an NFL team. It's so much that I actually thought that might keep the Eagles from trading cars and stuff like that might be so much of a penalty. They're not even getting rid of the guy sounds like they did. I thought it's good for everybody Carson Wentz wanted out they I think we're you know, we'll talk about Jalen hurts in a minute, but I thought it was good to get Carson out of there. It is also kind of weird and interesting I talked about Jared Goff previously very briefly the other the the record for the most amount of dead money against the salary cap was Jared Goff. The Rams amount is 22.2 million dollars off. Beat 19 days later by the Carson Wentz trade what is dead money? You may ask it's basically all the guaranteed money the Eagles still owe Carson Wentz after the trade. So even though Carson is no longer on their team. He still creates a thirty three point eight million dollar cap hit for next year. So over thirty-three million dollars off of the salary cap has taken up for Philadelphia. They cannot use that money for other players. It's weird. It's interesting. It's never that's again the most ever pretty interesting. I was surprised that you know, they still trade off a given that but in the trade the Colts got Carson Wentz so the cold they get their quarterback that the replacement Philip Rivers the replacement for Andrew Luck. I'm happy for the Colts man. They've they've Way to make it work. They lost in Turlock. They had to scramble the Mage Jacoby Brissett work for a year. They made Philip Rivers work for a year. Now. They've got what they believe is their franchise guide Carson Wentz good for them. The Eagles got a 2001 third-round pick for the upcoming NFL draft and a conditional 2022 second-round pick and here's what's really cool. The condition. Is that if Carson Wentz plays 75% off Kohls offensive snaps for next year if it stays healthy place the whole year or you know, it's good enough to be the starter all years and get benched. Then that draft pick goes from a second round pick in 2022 to a first-round picks. Oh, wow. I like about that. People are saying the Eagles got a horrible trade. They got fleeced. It's terrible. Oh my goodness. You gotta realize this is probably the best trade they could possibly find the Eagles traded away Carson Wentz a guy who has an injury history has been injured repeatedly over the years. He's coming off of a horrible season where he was so bad the dude got benched for Jalen hurts a rookie quarterback Club. So the fact that Philadelphia made a trade where they have an opportunity to get a first-round pick that's impressive to me. I think people realize that's the best they were going to get so anybody criticizing Philadelphia you did not realize how I think how little value Carson Wentz really had on the market people like nobody really wants him. I think JJ Watts getting a ton of attention Carson Wentz people are very wary. And I think it's really what's really disappointed me. Is that the Bears didn't get him. What did the Bears did the Bears not want him? I don't understand. Maybe they're trying to John Watson feel like the Bears really lost here. They still got home key who Carson Wentz has problems I think is way better than Mitchell trubisky. So debate that all you want. I don't know how you go. Like. Oh the Bears they got a great quarterback still trubisky. I like it. I think another thing people got realize is that I love the trade for Carson Wentz. He's going to a way better team he gets to play for his former offensive coordinator Frank back in 2017 the best year Carson Wentz ever had in the NFL. He was a before he got hurt. He was an MVP candidate playing under Frank Reich. He's reuniting with that guy that's going to be awesome to got a great relationship and EM the Colts have a great offensive line. They've got to get running game. They've got a great defense Carson Wentz is being put into a great situation. If he does not do well then there's no excuse. You can make he's got great great team around him good support good people. He's getting helped.

What to Expect From the Dodgers and Rays in World Series
"And the World Series Tonight Clayton Kershaw in game one will tell the rubber for keys dodgers against Tyler glass. Now at the brand new home gonNA turn him in the grass for sure. We'll see if that glass will shatter or maybe the Raizal. Ceiling and win their first world series. It'll be played at the brand new home of the Texas Rangers Globe. Life Field expect about twelve thousand fans or so in attendance, and as you know, it has been a tale of two different halves for Clayton Kershaw, a regular season is dominant. A dominant gets postseason has certainly been that way obviously most of the dodger defenders we'll tell you when you take on somebody in the postseason, the quality competition certainly ratchets up. Game. Tonight pre game coverage ESPN, radio seven, thirty eastern, and every single night that we have the world series every ball every strike pre-game radio seven, thirty, eastern. I just. In the world series is not very good because like five or something five point four, zero in the world series, which is not going to bring it down tonight though we'll see we'll see. The rays have some guys you've never heard of but by this time tomorrow, that's certainly may change including the great rookie randy arose arena. If you see him tonight, he is one of the greatest splashes onto the postseason seen we have seen in many years. All right. So put your dodger cap your cap on literally, and figuratively, what do you think in tonight? One of the biggest moments in the managerial career Dave Roberts who's been feeling the strain I think since day once we first of all, it's going to start with the. Pitching Right Kershaw has to come out and he has to deal and we have to back him up and support him. We're runs the last several outings for him. We really haven't done anything with our bats for whatever reason that's the struggling part of it. If you remember several days ago I had mark to share on our show. Yeah we have more share on our show in in question I asked him about the pressure of a pitcher in those innings you get to the fifth sixth inning and you're still battling in a one. To one situation, we've gotTA give him some room to play with and I think it starts with him on the mound. But also, what are bats the guys like Bellenger even though something maybe a little wrong with his shoulder you gotta hope that a guy like that comes through in J. T. and seger stays hot that way we can get some runs and now kershaw could relax at the mile it pitch like he's capable of pitching can appreciate the fact that even though the dodgers of the second highest payroll and the rays have the twenty eighth highest payroll. At Twenty, eight, million dollars highest she'd player. D. appreciate the fact that they they are. They're frugal when she talked about their payroll all the time. That's the first thing he go to talk about the raise the payroll. We're saving money over here. You can still compass a championship. Would you can. You gotta tip your cap to them as a former pro athlete that's played in a variety of organizations with a variety of different approaches. The fact that they're at this stage for the second time in franchise history utilizing the exact same plan. Let's spend less and win more. Plan works to raise and Andrew Freeman certainly put plan in place for them and they've taken over and they've done well with it. The dodgers aren't doing tell Andrew Friedman is the guy that's leading the dodgers essentially got the job because he put the in such great position in his tenure there from two thousand, six to two, thousand, fourteen, four playoff appearances, two division titles, and now he wants to do as much as he can to make sure he can squash that raised team he built and the culture he formed

The Positives and Negatives of Investing Your Money in gold
"The positives and negatives of investing your money in gold by Robert Farrington of the college investor Dot Com. Do you remember all the hype around gold in the not. So distant past from two thousand, seven to two thousand eleven. The value of an ounce of gold went from about five hundred dollars to eighteen hundred dollars. If you would have purchased gold in two, thousand seven, you would have nearly quadrupled your investment in just five years. Now, that is one heck of an investment. Around this time I also pronounced that you shouldn't buy gold and it received a lot of criticism in more recent years. Gold has settled back down to around thirteen hundred dollars and sometimes slightly less than that. So hopefully, you took my advice, but the question still remains in the back of people's minds. Would it be wise to invest in gold right now? At, its current price gold is worth five hundred dollars less than its previous high. So one would think that an increase in value could be on the horizon. Here's what you really need to know about the pros and cons of investing in gold. Pros of investing in gold. In my opinion, there are three major pros when it comes to gold investment one, it's equality hedge against a down market to it will still have value of paper currency inflates and three. There is an apparent upside to its value versus years. One Gold is a quality hedge against a down market. As we all saw in two thousand seven when the stock market took a dive everyone began putting their faith in gold instead with the higher demand in gold and with a limited supply. The price of gold went up massively within the next couple of years we may witness another steep downmarket, which may again increase the value of gold. Two Gold we'll still have. Value Paper currency inflates. Local currencies constantly fluctuate against foreign currencies. It's the way of the world policies are in place to hold currency steady, but they're not always foolproof once a currency begins to make a downward spiral it can be very difficult to stop severe inflation, which of course, decreases our purchasing power. Is often the more solid option for currency since there's a finite amount of this precious metal if you have gold, then you're likely to hold on to more of your overall worth than someone that is put all of their faith in the banks and paper currency. Three, there is an apparent upside to the value of gold. As I stated before gold was once at eighteen hundred dollars but now rests at value of less than thirteen hundred. If there's a slight blip in our economy that sends fear through the nation, then gold could easily spike back to eighteen hundred mark. It no longer seems far fetched because after all the value has already been there before. Cons of investing in gold. I used to be a huge advocate of gold and silver investing but my opinions on this investment technique have changed largely because of these cons. One Gold has a terrible historical return. If you went back two hundred years and put ten thousand dollars in gold ten, thousand in bonds and ten thousand stocks, which of these investments would come out on top. Well, if you're smart, you would probably not choose gold to be the top investment but the astonishing part about this is how poorly it actually performed versus the stocks and bonds. Here are the values of your investments after two hundred. Years. Old Twenty six thousand dollars bonds eight million dollars stocks five point six, billion dollars. Based on the historical returns gold is a lousy investment. To Gold is worthless if things get really bad. As a pro, we stated that gold is a great hedge against the dollar inflating, which causes us to lose our purchasing power. This is true. But what if the currency becomes absolutely worthless and we all have to resort to trading goods to survive what value is gold at that point? Well, let's see me certainly can't eat gold. So it is of little value for that purpose and you really can't make anything easily out of gold either. So there really isn't any value they're pretty much at this point your gold nuggets in bars are only as valuable as Iraq because he might be able to throw it at something and kill it. Three gold only earns you money when you sell it. The biggest con of investing in gold in my opinion. Oh and Warren Buffett's is that it produces you absolutely nothing when you own it. If you want to grow truly wealthy than you want to buy an asset that produces a passive income while you own it so that you can then by other assets that make you even more wealthy. Warren started doing this as a boy. When he bought a hunk of land, he knew the land would increase in value but the truly great part is investment was that he could earn an income each year from the local farmer that wanted to rent his land after a few years of Rental Income Warren Kundun reinvest his money into even more land and do this over and over again, this method allowed him to buy assets that gained in value, but also gave him income while he owned them.
Long Haul Trucking Means Better Prices For Consumers, But Drivers Suffer Low Wages
"The stuff that you buy in stores, close food electronics almost all of it got there on a truck long haul trucking is getting cheaper and that's good for consumers. It means stuff is cheaper, but it's not so good for truck drivers because this is happening at their expense. Here's Keith Romer from planet money. In two thousand, seventeen Kimberly Sikorski decided she was going to become a trucker she called Prime Inc. no relation to Amazon prime because they offered free training prime seemed eager to have her literally I think I called on Thursday night and they were ready to buy me a greyhound ticket for Sunday to start on Monday Sikorsky took classes and drove with a trainer for three months. But before she could go out on her own, she had a choice to make your given the option to either be accompanied driver or a lease operator option one she's a regular old. Employees. Paid based on how many miles she drives option to. She gets to be her own boss. She'd have to lease a truck through prime but then after expenses she would share of whatever her loads brought in in the form of a weekly check from prime. They say if you're not stupid and you're not lazy then you make a lot more money being released operator and you're Kinda dumb if you pass that up. So Secorski chose option to she picked out her truck finance through prime a brand new blue freightliner that she named Sapphire. Then she hit the road. But when she started receiving her weekly checks, something didn't seem right a lot of times when I'm expecting to see a check for a couple of thousand dollars, I'm getting a bill for like two hundred dollars or five hundred dollars or fifteen hundred dollars a bill before Secorski got her cut prime deducted truck payment's insurance equipment cost and primes percentage as a broker also for an independent contractor it sure felt like she worked for prime. So they say that you're not their employees but you're. Completely bound to them. You're not allowed to take loads from anyone else. You're not allowed to ask for different loads than what they're giving you. Secorski works seventy hour weeks for six months at the end of it. She had earned just nine thousand dollars. It got to the point where I would be sitting in my truck crying because I'd be afraid to buy a hotdog when it gets to the point of your electricity being shut off and your grocery bill not being able to be paid. There has to be something better finally she quit. Steve Sally a sociologist at the University of Pennsylvania specializes in the industry. He says that four higher long haul trucking has become a commodity and customers only really care about price. The way that the market has been constructed requires that you compete on the cost of labor getting Sikorsky to lease a truck from prime and then work as an independent contractor. That's a standard part of the business model for a lot of trucking companies. Now, like having a, you know a truck for free an paying the driver less than you would have to pay an employee. Some of those drivers though have started to push back in recent years there's been a wave of class actions lawsuits against some of the. Biggest long-haul companies in July Kimberly Sikorsky's old company prime settled a lawsuit in which it was accused of Miss classifying its employees and violating minimum wage laws. Prime did not admit wrongdoing as part of its settlement and they declined to be interviewed for this story. But in an emailed statement, a lawyer for prime wrote quote, we have thousands of highly successful independent contractors and company drivers who thrive within our business model. The class action that was settled is completely unrelated to Miss Sikorsky's allegations. The litigation was seemingly endless and was best resolved as part of that settlement forty thousand former drivers for prime are eligible for a share of twenty, eight, million dollars, which means it's like seven hundred dollars a person. Does that seem like enough? No Honestly It's kind of laughable. Kimberly Sikorski is driving for a different company now and this time she's an employee Keith Romer NPR news.

The months numbers were helped by two huge events, the Democratic convention, which is Essentially A. Four, night commercial or telethon, and then announcing Comma Harris has his choice for VP, which apparently led to the campaign racing forty, eight million dollars in the forty eight hours after the announcement not to be outdone trump in the RNC said they raised about seventy, six, million dollars during last week's convention whereas Biden raised seventy million during the Democrat convention. But this huge month from Joe definitely cut into trump's fundraising
Joe Biden leads President Trump in national poll
"His past week the Democratic National Convention took place this coming week Republican convention will be happening as well and with both of these happening, we are firmly into the general election. But what do the polls show about the state of the Presidential Race Joe Biden continues to maintain lead but that is narrowing and while Biden, has his supporters. Voters are really more united opposition against President trump for more on what all the polls are saying right now, we'll speak to Stephen Shepherd politics editor. At politico. We got a boatload of polling over the past few days leading into the two conventions here and but it shows is some slight tightening from earlier in the summer when Joe Biden was up routinely around ten or twelve points in the polls over president trump that now averages out just seven or eight points in a number of those polls tightening slightly one poll tightened a lot more. But that looks like more of an out wire a couple of polls actually showed Biden's lead. Widening those look a little bit like out lighters overall, it shows a slightly tighter raising. You're absolutely right about this being the kickoff really for the general election, we have the two party conventions. By the following week you first absentee ballots and a swing state North Carolina, go out to voters in the mail the week after the Republican convention. So we're talking about really the election is as we are going to know it in this sort of pinned era really being on our once we. Get through these conventions and it's GonNa be interesting to see because usually when we have a convention that party gets a bump and with the Democrats Convention being virtual and who knows how exactly how the Republican convention is GonNa play out are those bumps going to be comparable? Another thing that we're seeing is that or Joe Biden it's not necessarily hey, we support Joe. Biden. We Love Joe Biden. There's some of that but most of his vote is coming in as opposition to president trump. This is something that I think. We've looked at over the course of the past few months where you see a relative enthusiasm gap when you ask people how enthusiastic they are to don't folded ended it president trump's supporters and. Whether it's in parentheses or on social media are very active here his rallies or about him horror. So Biden, it is more about for his voters seems to be more about kicking out the incumbent president and NBC News Wall Street Journal poll out on Sunday Fifty, eight percent Biden supporters said there was more about opposing trump just thirty six percents that it was about voting for Biden for. Trump voters, seventy four percents they were voting for trump because they meant it as a vote for trump only twenty percent of trump voters they meant more as against Joe by. So you have this kind of asymmetry where go Biden's voters are enthusiastic about voting. They're just a disaster about voting against president trump not necessarily copilot and it'll be his challenge over the next couple of months to keep. Those voters in the fold one point I wanNA make on Convention bounces is Democrats as may recall or initially supposed to hold their convention in the middle of July five weeks ago. The idea was having an earlier convention would give them momentum through the summer carry through the Olympic Games would have been in the early part of this month would be ending right around now and that would set. Their nominee up well, even going into the Republican convention. In late August, obviously, they put back hoping that they could buy some time and still have an inverse invention with that didn't happen. We're stuck with these back to back virtual conventions and I think that's going to blunt both the virtual nature of the conventions, and also the timing factor Republican convention begins just four days after the Democrats conclude. Limit what kind of momentum each party I think can get out of this four-day infomercial that part looking to put on over the next couple of weeks. What kind of bump did the naming of Kama Harris as the running mate for Joe Biden? What kind of bump did that provide I know and the first forty eight hours they got forty, eight, million dollars. So the fundraising part of it was kind of their but polls, what were they saying about it? Well we see only a few polls conducted after Joe Biden named his running mate and they're pretty consistent with the polls that were conducted right before earlier last week. So I don't know that it changed the race a lot but what we saw is overall voters telling pollsters that they approve of the choice Joe Biden made arguably a safe choice choosing an experienced candidate who has exposure on the national stage voters got to know her during her presidential campaign in twenty nineteen CBS News of a Washington. Post. CNN. SRS sound maturities practices choice to that's not uncommon majorities approved of John. McCain's choice of Sarah Palin in two thousand eight in the first days. Obviously. Whereas well with voters over the closing couple of months of that campaign. So it's not unusual for there to be enthusiasm around the right after it's made the Salads or Democrats and for Kamo houses to keep that going the her momentum going through the convention this week, and obviously the other key moment for her and for Vice President Mike Pence Day or debate in early October
Final Derby Dress Rehearsals
"The favourite for Saturday's travers stakes is the Belmont stakes winner Tis the law, the owners of the law, a group of fairly regular guys from the Saratoga area they go by Saka. Toga stables are the same guys who owned funny side the winner of the two, thousand, three, Kentucky Derby and preakness they showed up to each triple crown race in a yellow school bus, not a limo. It was a scene to which many of us could relate but I'm going to give you a comparison of two other. Owners of horses running in Saturday's travers they are and Lori Hall who owned the Third Place Finisher in the Belmont Max Player and Orlando and Jonathan Noda who liked their travers entrant I line are the longest of longshots George Hall is the founder of a Hedge Fund, the Clinton Group that company's assets reached a high of five and a half billion dollars in two thousand, sixteen. Orlando Noda is a thirty one year old trainer who co all of his horses with his brother. Jonathan who's in the car business? George Hall and his wife Lori sold a six level. Manhattan penthouse in two thousand seventeen for somewhere around thirty eight million dollars. Orlando notice biggest return on investment so far has been the horse not loves a fight who not claimed for ten thousand dollars in May of two, thousand nineteen and whose win a month later represented his trainers I ever. T loves a fight won four races for his trainer and finished second last week in the John Morrissey at Saratoga. You. Get the idea Max player for George and Lori. Hall won the withers stakes back in February and finished third in the Belmont. STAKES IN JUNE FIRST LINE FOR ORLANDO. Noda just earned his first win in four tries and he's returning on only ten days rest to take on an imposing field. But if his trainers story is any harbinger, don't count first line out and we are pleased to welcome to win the game for the first time the trainer of First Line Orlando Noda what went into the decision to turn this horse around in just ten days. The horse came out of it good and I nominated him prior to even run especially. Like figure that especially wasn't GonNa go I was I was GONNA test my luck there and restaurant him because. The horse had shown me talent ever since I had him and I think got strike while the iron is hot right now and everything is just clicking on all cylinders. So I. Think we're just going to give it a go is not every day that we can have a three year old peak at the right time via because of this corona virus that maybe I might might just be able to pull off the upset and get my derby points that that I high horse up about the beginning. You would said to a couple of racing aficionados over the winter that you had a derby horse and first line what made you think that then Oh no the horses super talented it from the first time that we breathed him. We knew we had something special. I'm not the lightest of riders and horses just noting on track with me and I just can't picture it. Any other way because everything has played out to where it should as he broke his. Maiden here in Saratoga and I think the past two races, six furlongs, it was just the the too short for him for his long strident. He just went comfortable and those fractions buying the mollering Nathan not many horses hold up biting the whole time that they are at the top of the stretch hometown in first line and they've been at it. Right from the START I line on the outside pokes ahead and front hometown continues to battle down at the rail. Now, they're at the eighth bowl it is first line and hometown go to battle for a mile and a furlong here first line hud and front hometown not giving up they come for the finish and first line is first under the wire. Race I'm wondering if he's even cooled out yet from that race, I mean that was affirmed and Alydar Rier Dan Against Jaipur was neck and neck for a mile and an eighth I mean, how do you think that part of a racist going to affect him the ten days notwithstanding? Even fresh I'm not doing much with him and. Keep Afresh to the to the race. Then you gotta show up on the race checking in, and that's how he is all game once it gets onto the track. IS A. Very level-headed. Once once he gets into training just like train I'm just giving just. Keep them -freshing raider fire. For for the drivers.
Coronavirus Impact on the Food Industry: Cameron Mitchell Restaurants CEO
"Joining us right now on the topic of small business and what he's seeing is Cameron Mitchell. He's the founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which owns nearly sixty establishments across the United States and Cameron. It's great to see you. It's been a while since we've spoken good morning break plagiary back with you today. So. The first time we talked to you was in the midst of the shutdown when all of your restaurants had been closed down and you laid out a plan for what you were hoping to see. Two weeks ago on March third, I was in Washington DC to meet with my bankers and I expressed them what a great start year we had were up seven percent same store sales record profitability for the first two months of the year. This was March third tomorrow I believe March Eighteenth we will be completely shut down I laid off forty, two hundred people on Monday. The last time we talked to you things we're looking pretty good business was was back and was booming. I think we're going to survive, but it's going to be a while before we get to the hospital we expect to be open in hopefully back to full employment by the end of June or into or end of July somewhere in that neighborhood. So what's happening right now? The best way equate it to is we're in a hurricane in the first. Landfall, the hurricane was back in March fifteenth and. It was is detrimental as it was terrible. It's was We end up getting the money and we're able to get out and get open and it was a lifeline. We would not be here today if it wasn't for the original P P P loan and June came and sales, we're doing pretty good. We're about seventy five percent of last year sales were feeling very optimistic and and when I came to realize is we are really just in the eye of the storm and then July the beginning July head and and the case counts rising. Across the country and met, metropolitan. Areas Rolling back opening guidelines and in further restrictions on our business and sales fell down to now fifty percent of last year and that is just not sustainable. So here we are today you know August second and I feel just as nervous about the future as I did back in the beginning of March when Corona virus was coming over the horizon. So we're looking for a second round of P P P to help us get through the other side and and help us sustain for the future so. And the thing that we're hearing mostly Congress is about the stimulus checks, the unemployment but there are thousands and thousands of businesses like ours out there in the country they're hurting terribly at fifty percent decline a forty percent decline sales we cannot survive. We're losing between five, hundred thousand and a million dollars a month, and we need the additional P P P dolorous in a in a terrible way and you know the the curb puzzle is for a two million dollar cap on that which. last time was ten million dollars and so for a company like ours and many others that reduction of eight million dollars just when we need it, the most is is very difficult for us. Camera now is the decline in your business coming mostly because states or local municipalities have have forced you to not open as much into close things down or much of the decline is coming from people who Are, afraid to go out what and how would you measure that a difference while it's both clearly when you have a reduction in capacity from use spell. Example Beverly Hills we were closed all restaurants California closed for indoor. New York City we were not allowed to open our whole restaurant that was just for the Patio Philadelphia. We're not allowed to open that was got rolled back from August I now to September first. So some of our businesses are not even open yet So but the main driver of that reduction of sales is the increase case cow corona virus around the country and people becoming more and more nervous about going to restaurants even though there's no science dates that that says inherently restaurants, Kobe case outbreaks, her Dr Been Driven by restaurants seating. Indoor and outdoor see. Cameron. What? What are you doing in terms of your relationship with your landlords? particularly in some of those places, the restaurants haven't even reopened yet. Are you getting any forgiveness or any easing of things from them? Well, that's the thing becky you know we had almost all of our landlords help out in some way or another not all but some or most they should say, but that money is just a simple deferral that's So we have an additional three, million dollars we got deferred in. April May and June but that money has to be paid back over various schedules over the next two years. That's just additional debt on the balance sheet, and we come out of this without P P p. one of the things cameras restaurants we built three or four restaurants a year, and if we're saddled with millions of dollars debt if and when we get out of this I don't see a building an aiding the economic rebound in the country in Twenty One and twenty two point further were saddled with all this debt. What have you heard from the the senators you've spoken with on this? I've spoken. Personally to both are centers in the state of Ohio and. They understand our plate and and but I, think they're. All. The negotiation right now over the six hundred, a week stimulus for unemployment benefits. So I don't think it's getting much attention that it needs right now and I hope by the time we get this bill and some sort of agreement between both parties on this bill that we can get this P P P round two stimulus, which has one hundred and ninety billion dollars earmarked for it, which should be more than enough for these companies passed the stress test that show they actually needed. To keep with the original PCP levels P P one camera I want to thank you for the update We we have to check in with you again soon, but we appreciate your time and wish you good

And my boys boys boys, put it on the pole. You slide and softball. I am media regretted it it was honestly, it was one of those things I made a bad decision ago. I was like, oh, this guy is never good arm and heading the second, and he had a shoot. And I'm like, wow, this has to be a perfect throw own. It was and I had to slide. Luckily, the second baseman dropped it. So. You've spent all season long saying that this guy's in athletic freak. You've never seen. Anybody put together at this age quite legs. I on Williamson them stepping on the court. I mean, even look what it took for him to get hurt something that we've never seen before really in college athletics shoe exploding. You have them out there being like Mr. glass, it's not gonna happen. And if it does he still gonna be taken within the first three picks? I mean, I don't think you could say that with one hundred percent certainty. I understand what you're saying. Even if he got hurt because people were saying that right after he actually did get hurt in the Carolina game at Cameron indoor that, hey, even if it was a bad injury. He'd still be the number one. I I know that there's some good players in the strap maybe RJ Barrett is taken ahead of injured Zayn willing cams better than both. How about that? That's one of the hotter takes I think that maybe there are some GM's in the NBA that look at Zion. Williamson that's going to be out for his first season in the NBA. But knowing that gets I on Williamson, and they get all. Those bird rights, and they have them on that rookie deal. I still think they take Zion. Williamson over ready to go Cam reddish.

Right. I mean, what what what way to make a great statement? Right. And you're here saying all he's risking is that NBA contract and potentially shoe deal. He's also standing to gain so many millions in his shoe deal say's ion Williamson. Yeah. Well, or a I think there's a there's another Adidas there's an Dita's relationship.

Choose to go to college at to go to college to be had to go to college for a year to get himself to the NBA fixed. The only ones who who's gonna profit off this of him coming back and playing against Syracuse is coach K is Duke, and the NC double light, not Zion zions already getting into shoe deal. He's already going to be the number one overall pick, regardless of what he does the rest of the way here.

I'm like, let's get the end, bud. She's like this ADS gets hit three tickets there. But that's all you get out far. Will this do the same thing? But I spent twenty bucks I by five Powerball in five making millions go, but I don't buy I should buy. I never by the Florida Lottery one, really. Yeah. And those scratch off once my youngest every time she gets when she wins. I never win them. Neither do I. So I just I I'll give her five bucks and say you pick it out. Go ahead and look. I went to visit her in Jacksonville. I gave her five bucks. She picked when she won twenty five. She kept the money. So wait a minute. You bought the ticket with my money. That's my money. Get back. Oh there for a while somebody told us, well, you're going to do that the more expensive scratch offs the five and ten dollar ones that don't win those. I mean raged they got twenty five dollar wants to scratch it off. I'm like, I spent twenty dollars on his stupid thing. Literally nothing, and it's like you might as well just flushed down the toilet. I agree with you on that one. But anyway, so that's and then tonight three hundred forty five million for powerful. So either way you get a good shot. Just go spend a couple of bucks. All right. You can afford. All right. Breaking news today. Bloomberg credible news worthy organization source reporting that Bobby Muller member special counsel more. Yeah. Ready to deliver the key findings of his investigation into Russian interference in two thousand sixteen took a long enough time. Yeah. Well, they figures now all the, you know interest in the world is on Saudi Arabia. Whether or not this journalist inside the consulate right bull Pompeo just landed in Turkey. He landed overnight. So he's going to meet with all of them today met with all the Saudi officials yesterday and Trump had a very, you know, give credit to Trump for what he said yesterday. He said from you know, I've talked to the crown prince I talked to the king of Saudi they all say, they they had no involvement. No knowledge of what's going on. He said, let's not make this another Brett Cavanaugh. Yes. Where you're going to accuse in, you know. Commit to being guilty before you get the evidence streak. He's right. I mean, you're saying the Saudis are guilty without any proof where they get the proof. Then we'll say they're guilty on all the headlines even this morning Trump. Once again denies any Saudi Arabia involvement, and I gotta tell you to and I hate to be this is a bit of a twisted angle on this whole thing. But but hear me out because there's a point to it. We don't know anything about this journalist. I'm sorry. Somebody lost his life. Okay. The only reason why this is getting any attention whatsoever. And the media cares at all is because he's one of them because he worked for house. It all spun now Washington Post journalist in they're all up in arms, and this is a loss of a life. This is the most horrible thing. They did not give a rat's ass about four Americans killed in Benghazi. They didn't cover it. They ignored it. They covered for Hillary who ignored it a damn. But this is a Washington Post journalist, who's not an American, by the way, and all of a sudden we're supposed to care so much. And this is something that's so important. He dominates all of the headlines. We're all supposed to stop our daily lives for a journalist. Who's not American who got killed who? Sorry. Yeah. Well, he's ready Arabian. And apparently the reason he was killed was he wrote articles against the crown prince and against the king. Oh, well, okay. That Saudi Arabia. They cut your hand off. If you steal a loaf of bread. Yeah. So, you know. They letting women drive and that was thanks to the crown prince, but the king and the prince are both saying they had nothing to do with it. And they're telling the president United States that we're going gonna call 'em liars. So again, actually want us to kill our business deals again into the tens of billions of dollars hundreds of billions of dollars right under ten billion for military supplies alone to ruin this new relationship. We're building with them to get better oil deals and create more peace in that region and have an actual friend instead of an enemy. They're over a journalist. That's one of theirs. This is what they actually want. And they're probably going to get the media trying to spin policy. I'm sick of them. I think what's going to end up happening is they're going to say that it was an accident. In palm pales in Turkey, right now, talking the Turkish officials they say there was evidence that he was murdered Saudi Arabia says it was a deterioration that went wrong. So, hey, we'll see what happens it's their country their roles this guy. I'd be right to Saito. Turn this into a cavenaugh situation. Slowdown. To make this guy out to be some kind of an angel. We don't know whether he is or isn't. I agree. I agree. He could've been you know, again, it's Saudi Arabia rules. It's not ours. A out of it. He we lost a friend of the show owing. And the first thing I thought about did you get your buddy bucks or whatever it's called never. Now. I'm sorry has Dennis off. Isn't that terrible? Conspiracy theory already. Twelve hours. Ricky pundits into. Oh, please laugh we got that. And some other headlines to coming up.

"The thirty eight million dollars raised by US Senate candidate Beto Aurora from July through September is a record for a non self funded Senate campaign, we ask you when T political science professor doctor Kimmy king if she believes congressman Rourke is a unique case or if other Democrats running for statewide office can learn something from his campaign.

Since about two thousand the Republicans have pretty much been able to count on a solid base to turn out for them in the statewide elections. And what a ethic that is the conventional wisdom is wrong that if you create a grassroots campaign based on a charismatic leader who have experienced that can qualify him to be on the state like ballot. Then you can make a difference. And it might be a way to get a tow in that red door to be able to put some sort of Mark on a possible future Blue Wave, I know the the number thirty eight million may not turn a lot of heads in today's environment. But for a grassroots political campaign in a state to raise thirty eight million dollars in a quarter that has to be pretty impressive.

"Update the server based on what's being communicated to specific to any type of IT. And even though there's for whatever reason there was a delay in creating that update at equifax, and as a result this hacker and the penetration into their server. So there were a number of reasons a number of changing stories probably the bigger story after the hat. Reality. There's a reality of identity and a reality of. Information security and governance for businesses, and the reality is you cannot stop or prevent you can mitigate your exposure by doing certain things, including best practices like updating your, sir. And for whatever reason there was a delay. And the irony Kerry to to you. And I talking today is I wanted to focus to be on. The one year anniversary of the announcement the equifax data breach event, but isn't it ironic that just two days ago three days ago, a one hundred forty eight million dollar fine for their data breach event and Facebook based on their recent data breach event estimate for their finds a regulatory fines and penalties is going to be one point six billion dollars. And how embarrassing for Facebook for all? But particularly for Facebook, very embarrassing. And here's the thing. Here's what's happening. When you look at the reality of identity theft and data breach. Fiber thieves, ID theft, criminals are counting on complacency. Third counting on both consumers on businesses especially small to medium businesses to be complacent and one of the contributors tobacco. Complacency is what we call breach fatigue where consumers and businesses are so sick and tired of the news headlines about data breach. The beginning, I ignore the headlines in second ignore the problem and that complacency. Contributing to all the data breach headlines continue, and they're not going away anytime soon, and if I recall right target was like equifax as well, they experienced a data breach event and what happened to their CEO their CFO's. What happened pretty much nothing that I remember. Well, the interesting thing with target and equifax the same exact thing happened to both CEO's on boat. CIO's chief information officers both were forced to resign. And they weren't forced to resign at target or equifax they were hacked or because they experienced a data breach event. They were forced to resign because of their failed management in response to their data breach event, and that'll probably the single largest challenge that businesses and organizations app today, if you are talking and believe me. Target. When after they learned they were hacked. They were talking about it the next day. What are we going to do about it? And if any business organization is talking today about what are we going to do based on something that happened yesterday? It's already too late. So it's the failed management response that typically gets companies in trouble Uber had a major field management response. Facebook is a little more proactive being open and transparent, but they still have issues. So does experience and trans union have issues. It's amazing that as we mentioned these major companies, and all of these major companies that are supposed to be protecting the consumer in particular experience trend junior their major credit bureaus, and they can't seem to get this together. Or is it just getting tired of the constant security? Are they're not hiring enough IT people. What is the problem where are they lacks? The biggest challenge is. Is. And I'm not a group experience to answer your question. Yes. Experience.
"eight million dollar" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"Reason why I wanted to bring it up and why wanted to have Terry mcaulay on the show today is because I think that the NFL is so paranoid about getting people hurt, especially quarterbacks, they're so incredibly paranoid about the twenty eight million dollar quarterback on Minnesota and the thirty three million dollar quarterback on Green Bay. They're paranoid about the backups coming into play and the TV ratings being in the toilet. If Aaron Rodgers doesn't play and you have to play schon Kaiser, I get that. I understand that. That and I know where the sentiment is coming from. You wanna keep the quarterbacks healthy. You wanna keep them playing, but I think what bothers me more than anything else about seeing this play is that there's absolutely nothing else that clay Matthews could have done on this play then what he did. First of all, he did not involve his helmet in the hit on on Kirk cousins. Second of all, he did not hit him late. Third, he did not drive him into the ground. If you watch the replay and I've watched it many times you see that clay Matthews at some personal risk to him, actually put his left arm out to brace the fall of both him and Kirk cousins on the ground. So you have almost. A perfect storm of competitive caution. Being taken being taken up by clay Matthews and here comes Tony, Karenni, the referee who I like. And I think he's one of the best referees in the league, and I don't know why he made this call he. He said, afterwards that Matthews lifted them off the ground, you know, in drove him backwards. Well, I, it's possible possible that Kirk cousins was an inch. His foot came an inch off the ground momentarily possible, but I don't even think that is clearly defined on this replay the bottom line in this whole thing and and again is going to, this is what I'm gonna talk to Terry mcaulay about momentarily. The bottom line in this is the officiating in the NFL has simply gone too far. It has, and I am not one of these people who say, come on it was a lot better game when guys were were hitting people in the head. And when you know they were closed lining people, I'm not one of those guys. I love football. I love the the the way that the NFL right now, at least until Sunday, I love the way the NFL is attempting to try the best possible way the league can to make this game as safe as possible and to take a lot of the concussive facts out of the game..

"I think that's an ideology move, but we will say, I, I wanna make one other commonplace. Khalil Mack. All of the practice then at the rate is didn't know what they were doing. Letting go Khalil Mack, I wanna ask you, David, I would. You rather have to mid first round draft picks. 'cause that's all we can expect. You know, we don't know where they'll be in the first round affect your pay, who average three and a half million dollars a year over that life. So their five year rookie contracts including the Fethi Robson that you get with the first time. Eight million dollar a year player. Would you all under the twenty three to twenty four million dollars that Khalil Mack is going to get paid each year with a Chicago. Best with your fleet is one of them's getting paid sixty million. You can get a phenomenal prayed to four. It that way call to my point is, is that you're trying to win or not. Number one number two. I'm looking at a guy like Jon Gruden. You've been out of the game for a decade, their six previous years. You coached in the National Football League. You went to the playoffs just twice that you didn't want a single playoff game there. That's sixteen years that you haven't even wanna playoff games as one in the Super Bowl in two thousand and three for the two thousand and two season that as and you go there yet your buffer year, offensive line, you've got your quarterback and what have you, but you're not really spaying any attention to the defensive side of the ball. I'm like, look at, listen. If you're not trying to do anything with your defense, you know you don't pay him. But if you're trying to win, you're drafting the get your hands on somebody of this magnitude. And I think for you for raider nation and people like that, and then you gotta pay guys like this Caulton. And both on the defense and go hire somebody for sixty million dollars a year to be in my second, and they will waive make more of an impact in Khalil alone. Will he the great player? He's Jack not want Bagai money. I got to call it the great to hear from you, man. I appreciate your call back. I'm back to stay buddy. Thanks so much to call it.
