What Is Actually in the Infrastructure Bill?
"Let's talk about what's actually in the bill. It's two thousand seven hundred pages long. They read the whole bill. This infrastructure package is larger than the obama stimulus that almost every single one of these republicans said was too big so these republicans said obama's big spender. We don't like debts and deficits but then they go out of their way to go spend one point two trillion dollars by the way. That's you our children's and grandchildren's among this so let's what's in the bill. Let's go through five specifics. John salomon from just the news. Dot com has a great article on this. The bill includes a mandate for vehicle manufacturers to install drunk and impaired driving prevention technology as standard feature. Inside of the new vehicles might sound somewhat noncontroversial so basically the government can come in and turn off your car. if they think you're impaired. The legislation contains one hundred eighteen billion dollar bailout for the highway. Trust fund which is currently funded primarily through federal taxes on gas and diesel fuel. As the text of the bill does not specify a revenue source funds would just be transferred from the treasury treasury general fund to the highway trust fund. You do know that every single year as well we have infrastructure and transportation spending as part of the general fund of our budget senate. Republicans don't care about that senate. Republicans have decided to make buddha judge. The czar of a vehicle miles traveled tax. A pilot program will be created for a vehicle. Miles traveled tax which is a system for taxing drivers based on their annual vehicle. Mileage is hidden away in the bill. Section one three zero zero two titled the national motor vehicle per mile user fee. Pilot remember when pe- buddha judge flooded out that idea earlier this year during his confirmation process and republicans. Got very upset now again. I'm not an expert. But i do know that. North dakota has a fair amount of oil and natural gas. Do you think this will help oil. And natural gas exploration or hurt oil and natural gas exploration if you're taxing people driving by the mile
Weather experts: Lack of planning caused cold catastrophe
"I'm Julie Walker weather experts say a lack of planning because the cold catastrophe we lived through last week because that killer freeze was no surprise at least twenty people dead four million homes without power heat or water at some point insured damages so far estimated eighteen billion dollars meteorologist sounded the warning for weeks at a time to officials and on social media tweets like off the chart cold blogs about arctic air alerts warning of subfreezing temperatures but the head of the national weather service's behavioral insights unit says people may have heard the message but we're thinking cold is no big deal something disaster science professor Jeannette Sutton says it's human nature it is our communication with trusted people around us that influence the decisions we make even more so than the message another weather expert says of the utility and power companies left unprepared saying the storm was so big it wasn't planned for is not a great way to plan I'm Julie Walker
Democrats kick off process to fast-track COVID relief package
"There are now two proposals for the next covid. Nineteen relief package one from the democratic white house. One from republicans in congress and it seems lawmakers on both sides are now moving forward with their own. Plans without a lot of bipartisan support first. Let's talk about the republican plan. It's worth about six hundred. Eighteen billion dollars it includes money for covid nineteen vaccines testing treatment and medical equipment. Also more direct payments this time worth a thousand dollars for americans who make less than forty thousand a year and it also includes billions of dollars for small businesses schools and childcare. But it's not clear if this plan stands shot at passing since democrats who now hold the majority in congress say it's not enough overall. President biden wants to covid nineteen relief package three times the size of that one at one point nine trillion dollars but republicans have called his plan too costly on top of almost everything in the republican proposal. Biden also wants to see aid for state and local governments larger direct payments for more americans and a fifteen dollar an hour. Federal minimum wage just to name a few sticking points president biden met with some moderate republicans at the white house yesterday. Several of them left the meeting saying they got the impression biden was open to negotiating some elements of his plan. But it looks like some of his fellow. Democrats in congress are ready to move forward. Without their republican colleagues top dams in both the house and senate released a separate budget resolution. It basically unlocks special rules allowing biden's package to pass with a simple majority vote in the senate so that essentially means fifty one votes instead of sixty votes usually need it or another words. They can passage even if every republican votes against it. The ap says the goal is to have a relief deal approved by next month since. That's when extra unemployment assistance and other past pandemic aid

America’s Zombie Companies Have Racked Up $1.4 Trillion of Debt
"Zombie apocalypse on wall street. Hundreds of big name companies wants american icons are now among the walking dead names like boeing carnival delta exxon macy's. They aren't making enough money to pay the interest. On the mountains of debt they feasted on during the pandemic. Nearly two hundred companies have joined the zombie ranked since march and their numbers are growing total debt obligations now nearly one point four trillion dollars. So is there any hope for the walking dead here guy. I mean what's interesting. Is that a lot of these names. They are names that we talk about trading on this show. So how should we start thinking about this before we get in the walking dead. I just want to point out. That's a great job by our crack. staff leading. With of course the cranberries zombie which is a bit of an obvious choice in the great delors. Oh reared who lost too soon. She was obviously the founder of the band wonderful vocalist. I might have gone a different direction. And maybe we could've played something like this for example. Melissa leo the crack staff is listening into the show. Why the zombies. No it's important to point out the folks at home. It's more important than actually trading our first topic in what is known as the block of the. It's not it's not more important. And i and we'll talk about the black and we'll talk about zombie companies because i think it's important and last night we mentioned macy's and you talked about one hundred dollars table. Then tim said might be the thousand dollar table. And i think collectively. We thought there was a real good chance that with test that nine fifty five level which was the june high and i think it got up to nine twenty five today on two or three times normal volume. Now's the time to be taking profits. A lotta shorts have been squeezed other companies that you mentioned delta for example. I think that's a completely different ballgame. But what i will say. This counterintuitive is. This may seem if the economy starts to get better. You would think this is good for these companies but that means interest rates economic higher. And that's going to cripple some of these companies. We talked about it last night. And i'm sure one of our guests coming out. We'll talk about that again. Tim how do you start thinking about macy's and that debt that they apparently can't service. I mean when i think about dombi i think about that thriller video and i know guys got that red leather jacket with all the zippers on it. So just just to be clear. I think when i think about those companies you just mentioned they're all they're all different in terms of their Potential to be proper zombies a great band by the way. But i think you know boeing not assam company You know it's not Boeing is a company that has the ability to raise debt. But more importantly yes. Boeing's business has been totally disrupted boeing. His burned through so much cast in the last year. And it will burn through some castro most of twenty-one but it will be free cash flow positive by twenty two in probably be neutral by the fourth quarter so calling them assam company. I think is absurd. Calling macy's zombie company is something that's at least a fair analysis although again macy's showed that free cash flow with something that they expect they're going to have in twenty twenty one two and a company that raised a lot of money To to at least be able to fight another day including having a three billion dollar asset back facility is something you don't do cartwheels over macy's position right now but the recovery there and i'm long so i've made this clear. I actually think there's more of a recovery story even though i don't think macy's gets better overnight. Delta relative to other airlines is not even close to his ambi- story dealt is actually going to start to make money towards the fourth quarter of next year and we're not talking about a normalized business. We're talking about a business where odyssey international comes under a lot of pressure. So i also just think that the fed and the role that the fed is playing here and the role that the fed will play just through talking About the bazooka in their pocket means a lot of these debt markets. Don't have a whole lot of an impact in the next six months To what people think they're gonna do. I really don't expect it so it doesn't matter that these companies zombie companies it doesn't matter that delta added twenty four billion dollars in debt since the pandemic started by baldwin. At what point do we start getting worried about that. Debt load and these companies guy made the point that if the economy gets better you would think that that'd be better for these companies that can make more money they can etc said sell more whatever they make but then interest rates go higher. So how do you weigh that. Yeah those are all interesting. Factors that keep into To keep in the front of your mind. And tim did a good job of laying out the differences of these companies. But speaking to your question right the commonality of all these of these companies that they have as you have looted to have added significant portions of the balance sheet this year and they're burning through cash at a rate and their revenues are down at rates that we just haven't seen we're talking about you know seven and a half billion dollars of cash burn and eighteen billion dollars of casper burn boeing's example seven and a half carnivals example. So you have this push pushing pull situation. What i will say is that you've seen across the board. All these companies put one thing. I right and that is runway. And so they've taken on this debts that they have enough cash to get them to their next stop in order for them to continue to be able to operate what we've seen is them trying to achieve operating leverage by reducing staff count. And that is what. I think the topic that we're kind of trying to speak to. Here's when you start slashing human capital when you stop investing in capital expenditures when you stop innovating that is what leads you to being somewhat of a dead zombie company even after you've getting on the other side of this debt service coverage ratio also something to keep in mind. You can't meet your interest. Can't meet your debt service coverage ratio. You got serious problems dan. Yeah i think bond would makes a great point there and just look at our auto industry over the last ten years and obviously gm came out of bankruptcy ten years and wiped out a lot of that debt but they had a huge government interests that was really carried along and probably hurt them a lot of different ways as far as innovation and the way the bhawan just described it. It's clearly hurt for a lot of ways and look at the auto companies are doing really well right now so i think that's a great point. The other point on this make about this is that this is the world that we live in. It's the world that a lot of parts of our planet have been looking at japan over the last thirty years or whatever and then we are going to be saddled with debt whether it's consumers whether it's sovereign balance-sheets whatever the heck it is corporates. That's just the way it is. And that's why interest rates are really never gonna meaningfully. Go up again. Because we can't service all the debt and just make one other point if you think about twenty twenty and what's happened here. Obviously the fed has done their job. They hit this crisis early to make sure that we did not have large-scale bankruptcies right of some major corporations which would really snowball the unemployment situation here but let me just tell you this here. We are now four months out from expanded unemployment benefits. Were heading into the holiday season. We're in a very rocky transition and a lame duck. Congress and there is no more fiscal stimulus for small businesses and consumers. That need it really bad. So the fact that we have a trillion dollars for a bunch of companies that were buying eighty five percent using their free cash flow to eighty five percent of their free cash flow to buy back their stock over the last five years. The airlines and we can't bail out restaurants so we can't bail out consumers that is really troubling to me. Yeah we're really tough spot right now in terms of that bridge to the other side waiting for that other side for the vaccines actually be distributed and as well as injected into the arms of americans
Despite the Pandemic, Airbnb Will Take the Company Public
"I'm Elaine Appleton grant and this is business worse daily on this Tuesday August Eighteenth David Brown is on vacation. There's no other way to say, this twenty twenty is a weird year and yeah, that's a whopping understatement particularly for the travel sector, the latest news and the beleaguered lodging industry. It looks like AIRBNB will go public before the end of the year. The multibillion dollar home sharing company has long been eyeing the public markets. Early, this year AIRBNB was planning its IPO even though twenty nineteen. had been a rough year to in the first nine months of that year and the company lost more than three hundred and thirty million dollars growth was slowing competition already rough was increasing from aggressive rival Expedia, which owns short term rental brands. We are be O- and home away as we reported here, last year the entry of Marriott into the luxury home sharing business didn't help either. When the pandemic hit things took a dramatic turn for the worse the company faced a Billion Dollars in cancellations its valuation dropped from thirty one, billion dollars in twenty seventeen to eighteen billion dollars. This April, the next month airbnb laid off. Two, hundred people a quarter of its staff. It also slowed down plans to expand into TV and transportation the verge reported. Things were looking dire enough that even though it had plenty of cash on hand airbnb chose to borrow money and take on new investment to get through the crisis in total. The company raised two billion dollars at what the verge called. The steep interest rate top executives cut their pay and the eight hundred million dollar marketing budget was slashed the New York Times reported. It all seemed like one gigantic headache I say O'Brien Chessy in his crew. And yet AIRBNB still plans to go public by the end of August. AIRBNB could file IPO paperwork with the SEC if it does shares could trade before New Year's. At first glance that sounds crazy. But it actually reflects a little good news for the travel business along with some dramatically new patterns of travel behavior both here and abroad what do I mean? We'll think about it if you were stuck in the middle of a crowded city, this spring or summer working at your dining room table, would you stay put? Beginning in May a certain number of US said Hell? No. They had a Derulo areas where they could rent other people's homes, AIRBNB bookings, both in America and overseas began climbing back from their black hole for the three weeks starting around Memorial Day vacationers reserved twenty percent more homes than they did a year earlier according to Bloomberg business was best far from the madding crowds in. June. Reservations in the countryside jumped twenty five percent hosts in rural areas earned more than two hundred, million dollars in that month alone payments DOT COM reported international travel is virtually impossible and of course many. Of US are still avoiding airplanes so more and more of us are taking vacations within two hundred miles of our homes about one tank of gas in many cases were also staying longer after all many people no longer have to get back by Monday to go to the office we just take our work with us in a meeting in July CEO Chesty expressed amazement at the rebound in bookings. There is something I never would have imagined telling you the New York Times reported a kind of defies logic, but in June reservations also grew at rival Vr be oh, the Motley fool reported. Optimists see these numbers as a sign of life for the travel industry as a whole but predicting the future of travel right now is best left to gambling halls AIRBNB is fortunes could change suddenly depending on the course of
Airbnb Headed for Confidential IPO Filing This Month
"This is something that I would normally wait until the news was official before reporting on, but AIRBNB is the biggest Unicorn we've been anticipating, Mike Public, all year, its path to an IPO has so perilous what with covert and everything, and frankly we've discussed how very desperately the company needs to go public soon mostly for internal morale. So worth noting that sources are telling the Wall Street Journal that AIRBNB plans to confidentially filed for an IPO, this month with the aim of May getting the listing out the door by the end of the year. Let me let the Wall Street. Journal. Reminds you of how he got here quote. The long-awaited move, we'll bring one of the stalwarts of the sharing economy into the public domain alongside ride sharing platforms uber and Lyft, and sets up the next few months to be especially busy time for big IPO's AIRBNB was recently valued at eighteen billion dollars down from an earlier evaluation of thirty, one billion an imminent debut would mark a turnaround for airbnb which was founded in two thousand eight and allows people to list their homes for rent for years. The company shied away from the public markets as it grew into. One of the most highly valued startups with four point eight, billion in revenue in two, thousand, nineteen alone. It also spent big however prompting it. To swing to a loss in the first nine months of twenty nineteen compared with a two hundred dollar profit a year earlier, The Wall Street Journal reported its woes deepened late last year after issues emerged involving crime and safety problems on its platform and as the pandemic spread across the globe. So did the company's headaches people stopped traveling causing bookings to plummet airbnb three years ago valued at more than thirty billion dollars rush to secure financing from private equity firms, Silverlake, and sixty partners at a high interest rate and with warrants that when exercise would value the company at eighteen billion dollars in May. AIRBNB. said it was laying off a quarter of its staff and
Honeybees Need Your Help
"Today, a non coronavirus. You about honeybees from a guy who knows all about. Them Sami Ramsey Aka Dr Bugs. First of all can i. just ask you how you got that nickname, so actually got that title Doctor. Bugs while working at the Supreme Court of the United States I work with the Supreme Court in. I know, I know I was the only intern some measure and the deputy clerk of the court referred to me as bugs, and then told him that I was going for my doctor. He's like Oh, Dr Bugs so honestly, the Supreme Court just did not know how to handle your entomologist and all they could do was just yell but. They really did not know what to do with that. And of course, nickname stuck, which is perfect for savvy. A honeybee researcher at the US Department of Agriculture also props to the Supreme Court for taking an entomology and turn the best science. Yeah, I, said it. Okay. So how is play an important role in our ecosystem and for our economy, but the cells as you might have heard are not doing so hot. we lost. About forty percent of our honeybee colonies left with deeply concerning and unfortunately, as continued a trend over the past decade, or so of US losing close to thirty percent of our bees every year. And that could have huge consequences for all of us. So today the show what's killing the Bees Sammy Ramsey tells us what's driving these die-offs including a wild critter straight out of a horror movie. And he tells us what we can do to help the base. Two semi your friends, the honeybees. They're not doing well. Can you give us a quick snapshot of Why that matters Honeybees are dramatically importance to the environment in a number of different ways We could survive without them. We would just be really really bummed out because we would lose things like coffee. Avocados lemons limes oranges. Fruits and vegetables are pollinated by Honeybees, and while they wouldn't disappear entirely the huge amounts that we produce them in with simply be unsustainable, and they will become incredibly expensive prohibitively, so honeybees are worth more than eighteen billion dollars to the US economy every single year, primarily because of their pollination services in the night off that you mentioned earlier. Is this at all related to you know news reports that came out a few years back about bees kind of vanishing. Is that related to this dollars that a different thing? Who Okay here we go, so? We were talking about the colony collapse disorder. The defining quality was really that would open a colony that had been fairly productive, and just days before, and there would be pretty much nobis there. We have not seen that particular set of issues in more than half a decade now. We don't know whether it was a virus. Weather is a novel parasite whether it was just the confluence of. Of all of these different issues all coming together that the bees been dealing with stress climate change because it disappeared so sharply that we still haven't had the time to fully flesh out what occurred there. Okay, so so that is not what's going on now. That has subsided. We're not exactly sure what caused it. We're not exactly sure what ended it, but we're glad it's gone. So let's talk about the actual issues. That's making it hard for the bees to survive now so there's a triangle. Factors called the three piece, and that stands for parasites, pesticides and poor nutrition. These are the three main issues currently impacting honeybees now while colony collapse disorder is not still e problem. It did open our eyes to the fact that our bees are really unhealthy. What is? Is potentially the case. Is that colony collapse disorder isn't the issue. The bees were dealing with, but just sort of the punctuation mark at the end of a very long and very concerning sentenced about the state of honeybees around the world, so let's talk about the I p. the parasites you study that one that sounds like honestly to me a transformer. Tell me about that one. Varroa destructor does sound like a transformer, and while you might think that name is melodramatic, it's not I mean this parasite is off the wall wacky this parasite small about one point two millimeters long it climbs onto a be, and it will actually wedge itself between the exoskeletal plates that make up the bee's body so pretty much the be skin. It wedges itself under their. Their kinda levers one of the plates up and breaks through the skin under that with this mouse parts, and it releases this cocktail of digestive enzymes that break down the tissue in that region into a slurry, is literally turning the beasant cream of honeybees soup, and then sucking that out of their body so deeply concerned. You didn't have to say that with the Soup Yeah Sorry I you. It's a very good metaphor, but you didn't have to do. Well I. Want People to understand the horror story that honeybees are living through on a regular basis. It gives us more of a respect for them. You know. Yeah, okay, so let me get this right so this particular parasite this in. Might you know the way that it acts on the bees is extremely destructive in an also kind of them up suffer even more from poor nutrition exactly so let's talk about poor nutrition. What does food for a be look like in in? Why aren't they having much access to it? As they need great question so honeybees, the visit tons and tons of. Of Flowers, and they drink the nectar from these flowers. They transported back to the colony They regurgitate it into the cells. at they dehydrate it and turned it into honey they also collect pollen from these flowers, and all that pollen is used as a source of protein to then rear their offspring. So when these BS don't have a lot of pollen or nectar, they begin to starve, and they go into this stressed out sort of crisis mode. There's a lot of stress that they deal with as a result of that, and unfortunately, it's not just the matter of starvation. Them having a diet that is not. That can be really problematic. An individual, who is constantly eating French fries isn't starving, but they don't have the full complement of nutrition that they need in order to be healthy, and that's sort of the scenario that we have the bees in at this point and that doesn't allow the bees the sort of diversity that they need when they're feeding. Of Our land has been turned over for of course, the development for. So. There's a lot of monocultures out there of plants producing the exact same nutritive in their pollen. Okay, so final P. Pesticides. What are we talking about exactly? And what's kind of the problem? pesticides win used responsibly can be very effective at reducing the numbers of destructive insects that are destroying crops and keeping the cost of producing these crops down Now we have a lot of pesticides that are systemic there absorbed by the seed, and they ended up in different parts of the plant, such as the pollen or the nectar that has been collected by the bees and brought back. Back to the colony, and it moves all through the colony in addition to that there are chemicals like my decides mixed in with the herbicides and weed killers. People sprayed on their lawn, mixed with the Agricultural Insecticides while those chemicals may be used responsibly. We actually don't know what the interacting impact is for all of those different chemicals together. We've found that colonies on average have between three and four different chemicals in the colony anyone point and upwards of fourteen times, which can be really concerning, because we just can't account for all of the different effects that can have Gotcha Gotcha. So Okay Sammy if we as humans don't take actions to intervene. What. Do People that study? These think is going to happen. ooh, okay. We don't take action to intervene. I can tell you very clearly. There's going to be a dramatic economic impact without the bees. To produce those plants and native pollinators would take up some of the slack, but we would not be able to produce them nearly the large amounts that we produce them in. But I do want to say. Very clearly that this is being blown out of proportion by the magic of the Internet, people think that everyone will die if the B.'s disappear, but there are plenty of wind pollinated plants, corn rice, that cultures have lived off of for ages, and they've been fine. The problem is we will lose so much diversity in our diet and food would be a lot more expensive because there would be a massive drop in supply. Gotcha, so okay, what kind of solutions or things you know that we can do as a society would have the most impact in helping the Honeybee. Wonderful that Anyone can do. leave those dandelions alone. Don't mow the lawn in a way that is getting rid of all of the the difference Dandelions and things that we typically considered to be weeds, the wildflowers that spring up in your lawn. Bees love them. Leave them alone nowhere. We killer on those. And if you really want to be a huge help, plant tons of flowers and your front and backyard make a be sanctuary out of your living space. If more people did that, the issues that the bees deal with in terms of poor nutrition would be mitigated in a number of different ways, because bees are capable of self medicating if they can get a lot of resin and different kinds of nectar and pollen from flowers, able to medicate themselves, but they can't do that when they only have the offerings of that one plant. Okay Sammy I appreciate you and I appreciate the bees hall. That, warms my heart to hear I think. B.'s actually really love being appreciated. Well. Don't we? All I'm going to go home and not kill any dandelions implant some flowers. My Work here is done. Sammy Ramsey Aka Dr. Bucks and Tamala just with the US Department
Marathon in Talks With Potential Buyers of Speedway Unit
"We've got a mark flash on marathon petroleum. Let's get to, too. Melissa it's up roughly about three percents on six hundred thousand shares of. Volume and this is on some Dow Jones headline saying that Marathon. Petroleum the twenty five billion dollar oil refiner, not to be confused with the exploration and production company. He's looking to proceed with potential buyers of its speedway gas station unit. They're trying to sell it. It could have held evaluation about fifteen billion dollars to eighteen billion dollars in the pre covid, nineteen kind of estimate, but right now they're also looking at a possible spin off of the company, so it looks like it's restarting things trying to get this speedway. speedway units sold or spun off to shareholders or to the public in some way shape or form, but that's what's moving the stock right now, and that's the reason why it's up again about three and a half percent right now. Six hundred sixteen thousand shares after hours volumes will let you know if anything else happens with this story, but that's the reason why Melissa back over to you guys all
What COVID-19 Portends for Defense, Now and in the Future
"Steve. What changes are being proposed to fiscal? Twenty twenty what can we expect in that kind of supplementaries requests? That's being debated right now. The department offense is not particularly exposed or a beneficiary. If you will on of the emergency appropriations that are being made right now on. There may be some effect on. Dod Indeed the Twenty Twenty the total of twenty twenty appropriations all of a sudden on will surely be larger than the Seven hundred and eighteen billion dollars. That has been appropriated here to four but but I don't think it'll be a lot unless The administration comes up with new missions for the Department of Defense and its constituent elements the military departments primarily that that we hadn't you know that we haven't envision yet I think There's a little bit of money in one of the first bills that's already been asked to lead a poison forces or change the allocation or accelerate the allocation of some equipment to National Guard units. The details of those. I'll confess I'm not quite straight up on. But it's not a big impact as compared to the monies that are being allocated to the National Institutes of health. Hhs Department Obam Homeland. Security are the bigger recipients of money in the emergency supplemental. That were passed last weekend over the weekend. Michael did you have anything to add to that About some relief that might become in the way of the aerospace defense industry in some of the legislation. That's being occurred. Not maybe straight Appropriations but policy wise. Yeah absolutely I get to that in a moment but first Steve I gotta ask you. Is this the first known Emergency Appropriations bill that you can remember. That doesn't have the DOD at the center of it. I mean I'm just struck by the fact that we're talking about an emergency bill and Dod Really. The center of attention is just amazing to me. Yeah probably not the first one. I certainly believe there was a for example when when Hurricane Katrina if the Gulf coast that there was an emergency supplemental. Bill passed them. That had probably also had some dod money's in it but most about was federal monies to domestic. Let's call them agency so it's not it's not the first but but it's it's it's not often that we see a big supplemental come down the Pike with with dispatch like this one did that doesn't indeed feature the Department of Defense in this one does not want. It does not feature the Department of Defense. Let's say let's right. That's a good clarification over the other thing. I would say about it the other thing. Sorry now that you've got me rolling Michael Allen that I would say about. It is that Unlike some other supplemental appropriations. They're not really trading off or supplementing truly supplementing base appropriations Parisian's already been made in in the case of the twenty twenty budget on these are true incremental emergency expenses. You know as as we know and as our friend like Todd Harrison. Csis's painstakingly analyzed. There's a lot of stuff that ends up in a dod emergency supplemental. That are are really not true incremental responses to an emergency. This bill that they passed last week is is is true. You know authentic incremental expenses which but for the advent of the Cronin virus would not have made their way into Ud's budget and probably other agencies budgets as well. That's that's a good point. Excellent so Jen going back to your original question to me. So as we sit here and record this podcast were waiting to see what the Senate may came. Come up with in regards to any kind of specific stimulus for the aerospace and defense manufacturing sector as most people have probably heard by now. Boeing is leading the charge for a potential sixty billion. What I will call bailout? Bid that ostensibly Boeing is requesting for itself in its suppliers but as far as I can tell it would be money that would be going through Boeing as a clearinghouse Mainly for its commercial suppliers and we're going to more on that in a moment but there's that has to be determined because We only have the first of two chambers of Congress dealing with Bill Right now at its Senate and so far they can't they can't even get through the Senate in the two procedural vote. That have happened so far. So we'll we'll see what gets included in the end. In the meantime there is a there have been movements on a regulatory agency level of that the dod and that's the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security. Have an active where they're trying to help. Speed money to the aerospace and defense manufacturing sector through little Kind of unknown outside of the beltway but very important methods One of which is to try to raise What are called progress payment levels That contractors would be paid in the amount that they are build what that refers to is. let's say you make Doesn't F thirty five's and you send the bill over to the government you deliver them. The Government accepts them. You'd send the bill and the government says okay. Normally we would only pay you eighty percent of this bill up front because we WANNA make sure that these after work and we'll give you the other twenty percent leader. Well what's happened is the DOD has said were immediately raising that to ninety percent for the large companies and ninety five percent for smaller companies that get paid directly by DOD and so. That's just more money in the pockets of contractors. That's going to help a cushion. And he kind of liquidity crisis that may experience elsewhere in getting the funds needed to stay operating the other way that The government is trying to help. The manufacturing sector is by getting it declared and it has done so getting it declared any central part of the nation's critical infrastructure. And what that does is it formally provides guidance to state governors that when governor come along and they say hey we need to issue a shelter in place mandate so that people stay on their own and they certainly don't go to factories little on restaurants and things like that If however you work for a critical infrastructure like the electric grid or Potentially food processing or here now. The defense industry government still wants you to go. And so it's it's a it's a bit of policy making but it's important guidance coming on Washington office. That's good so With that said how is this likely to affect What's planned already for fiscal twenty twenty one Given you know this is kind of a crowded year already. There's a major presidential election underway. And we've got to get through on. Congres in Congress Legislation on all of these emergency bills at a at time when at least three members of Congress have corona virus. So how do you see that? Impacting this year schedule. And then beyond that into a feature years right so Just a couple of points of by way like a baseline The defense budget requests that was submitted for twenty twenty one in February for the Department of Defense Oh Five Oh if I may Speak in Arcane Parlin so But Jimmy accounts total seven hundred thirteen and a half billion dollars And then the end the out years associated with that request when he two three four and five Are for pretty slow too. You know depending on what you're talking about nominal dollars or constant dollars. It is either slow to even negative growth. Once you've taken in negative real growth once you've taken into account the effect of inflation such that we in my trade anyway are are are referring to the outlook for defense spending as flat Off Of the twenty twenty and frankly off of twenty twenty it even might be a little bit down Depending on how these supplementals turn out So even before corona virus captured the attention of The policy We were we. Were looking at an outlook for defense spending. That was flat. I think now with the advent of of the krona virus in the crisis that has created a in in all aspects health economic Difficult Policy That outlook is nominally. None Changed Right. The arm defense hasn't changed its budget requests out your program yet but politically and in our minds The minds of planners for these things I certainly think it has changed
Reset at Boeing
"Hello and welcome to this week's check six podcast. I'm Joanne. SOMO aviation weeks editor editor in chief. And this week we're talking. About all things Boeing joining us from. Washington is aviation week senior business editor. Michael Bruno who's here to talk about Boeings dismal earnings report and its first annual loss since nineteen ninety-seven due to the Max crisis and joining us from Los Angeles is senior. Your Guy Norris. Who's going to talk about Boeing's anime pullback and what its next move might be guy also has some good news to discuss? The first flight of Boeing triple all seven X so Michael. Let's talk with you. That earnings report yesterday was pretty ugly. It was in fact. It was the ugliest in a generation if a few assume a generation is about a twenty year long span People really hadn't seen this much reading from Boeing since one thousand nine hundred ninety seven and as you said in the setup this was the first annual loss that Boeing has reported since the time that President Clinton was in office and so people knew it was going to be bad. Nobody quite knew how bad. And we might get into this a little bit. But just some figures to to throw out to to show where Boeing actually came in at the end of twenty nine thousand nine hundred They reported a net loss of six hundred and thirty six million dollars dollars compared to earnings of ten billion dollars last year which were a record in and of themselves for the hundred three year old company company and then on the revenue side Boeing reported about seventy six billion dollars in revenue. which you might think is kind of amazing that all things is considered with the Max ebay companies still raked in seventy six billion dollars and that is kind of amazing but they were supposed to rake can about one hundred and ten billion that was their original forecast for last year? And it's certainly also below the one point something being billion that. They raked in the year before in regards to revenue. So there's no good way to look at it but analysts weren't surprised as I said Said but there were a couple of other things that they were surprised and we can get into that when we talk more about the Max okay and one of the things that also came out. Michael is that the potential attentional cost of the maximum. Boeing is up to eighteen billion dollars more than eighteen billion dollars so one of the big things everybody nobody was watching for yesterday during the teleconference with new CEO. Dave Calhoun was to figure out. Exactly how much more Boeing in was going to have to set aside to pay for the Max in many different ways and what I mean by that. Is We already know that Boeing up. Until until yesterday Boeing had set aside five point six billion dollars last year as part of a kitty of money a little treasury three of money that they had set aside that they said that's what it's going to be worth to compensate airlines and lessors and all of the customers of the Max so that was five point six billion originally. Yesterday they added two point six billion more to that at the same time as everybody might remember the way that at Boeing accounts for the seven three seven is through what's called in accounting block basis. This isn't a year in year out. Money spent money made kind kind of accounting. It's looking at the total development of the seven three seven through a large swath of aircraft. And in this case it's over a roughly three thousand one hundred aircraft accounting block and originally up until yesterday Boeing had said that they were going to add three point six billion dollars dollars in cost to that accounting basis. Well then yesterday morning they added another two point six billion and so already there. You know you've got five point. A two billion being added but wait there's more Boeing introduced a new charge that they said we'll be incurred starting starting this year and it could be worth up to about four billion dollars or at least four billion dollars initially. And that's what it's GONNA cost to pay for the Max halt the production halt. That's going on as well as any support to suppliers and any other costs that are incurred from the fact that production action. I got ramp down to forty two last year. Now has been halted altogether in January. So you put that all together and it comes out to at least eighteen billion dollars and that stuck out to me for one. Big reason which is eighteen billion dollars is probably on the high end of what people had thought might might have been the cost of developing the enemy. The new mid-size aircraft Boeing went ahead and spent that money. But they don't have a new aircraft. They're trying they get the Max back in the air.
"eighteen billion dollars" Discussed on KFI AM 640
"This will think about this he is a world leader in temperate she never loses her cool she prosecuted sex predators he is one of the key shut down for profit colleges the swindled Americans he was a for profit college drop University we teach success literally is owned by the big banks she's the Attorney General who beat the biggest banks in America and force them to pay homeowners eighteen billion dollars these tearing us apart alright so catchy catchy tune you kind of want to tap your foot to it I think this is our best spot I think she shading the truth in this body does fail to mention that when she sued the big banks the money that was supposed to go to homeowners just went to buttress the California state budget yeah well that she forgot yes you've got to put that I need but but look credit goes where credit's due here I think it was a beautiful juxtaposition of you know she's the anti trop they did the name of the spiders antidote which which I think turns off I think the majority of voters probably don't care about that or maybe even turned off by it but she's appealing to hard core democratic voters can trying to win the primary so to them it might actually be ineffective yeah I think the ads effective but I think the ship has sailed but the bigger problem she's got okay she's committed so many other problems up she's got Ding for being Kamel of the cop because she was too aggressive on locking up people with marijuana use she got got dean because she she glided invade about saying how she led the charge for body camper cop sees body cameras actually that's wrong as Attorney General she fought the use of body cameras because you're trying to make nice to the police union so she's she's gotten I mean this all these would fly him Scott in the Senate is actually someone in the Senate who champion that right she what co authored the Medicare for all bill and then she ran she she ran from it so I think the ship a sale but the bigger problem she might be able to rebound from all of those mistakes and burn they sat in but here's the problem she's broke she's cut the ad and the delivering on the internet is not getting in front of Iowa wins in new people from New Hampshire and South Carolina and so there's a real internet play actually cost money too that's right if people think of it as being really cheap and maybe it is by comparison but you got to spend I think trump has spent more than all the other Democrats Cambodia has any online yeah in fact this story if trump gets reelected and if you have a gun to my head I would say he likely does although lots of things can change between now election day if trump gets reelected I think what people are gonna look back besides it no trump did it go a good economy and Democrats nominated a loser I think the real story we're gonna look at is on the digital front and it's gonna be that trump is not just advertising for donors he's doing persuasion ads in the key seven swing states in a general election using digital and cable but mostly digital any spending tens of millions of dollars she's been doing that for months and he's the only one in a general election mode advertising to those swing voters and he's framing the contest he's framing the the general election between socialism and economic opportunity and freedom because generally is due no because your comms expert the candidate who frames the issue in the election and the voters mind first winds really I like to say and and look I found that the same bucket we're lazy right yeah once I made up my mind about something it's going to take a lot to turn it around and so I think they're gonna look at trump's use of digital spend as perhaps the thing that set his reelection in motion yeah he sort of the first real digital president I think Obama has a little bit I think trump take it to another level and when people when when reporters can get around to it they'll probably right about how what a genius digital campaign he ran right now by comparison Bloomberg he said he's going to spend a hundred million in negative purely negative anti trump digital assets separate from his TV dollars which is which is up I think Bloomberg's thought of effect is a Bloomberg ad on TV right right is that in the studio here our but betting Bloomberg's concern is that the Democrats are leading trump had an open runway talking to general election voters when the Democrats are are are bickering amongst themselves but anyway Comillas add I'd given the seven and a half out of ten for primary at I think it's good it's he she should put this out out six months ago yeah I frame it frames her campaign which year I should on a long time ago but a frames route it it really pitches the case she's been trying to she's been trying out another out I want to get into is from Toms dire he is the California or California and climate activists a billionaire hedge fund manager she until bloomer guided I think was the one of the richest guys in the race he's rolling ads he spent a couple billion to billion I wanna say for billing something like that and he spent the most of any of the field particularly in Iowa he's the spending leader yet he's only about three percent of poles let's say listen to this ad cut for Donald Trump is.
Pentagon Awards $10 Billion Contract To Microsoft Over Front-Runner Amazon
"But let's begin with Microsoft shares opening at a new high on Monday after Microsoft was award eighteen billion dollar Pentagon contract for its cloud computing services now Jason and may shock you to know that there may be a political layer this Amazon's the market leader in cloud computing they already provide cloud services for the CIA and they are considering challenging the awarding of the contract citing president trump's interference in the bidding process now we will let the politics sort itself out but in terms of the business locations what does it mean for investor. Yeah I mean very good point there regarding the political nature this who knows we don't obviously but from a business perspective I think it's really important we talk a lot about cloud these days and aws has always been the I think that the number one Amazon right services us the number one company in the space for a number of reasons they are but you Microsoft clearly is doing very well in the space it's very they think to to know that it's not just cloud business and then that's it right there there there's nuance to each company's cloud business and what the you do what I mean by that we look at Amazon for example you look at Amazon's ten K. and they refer to aws Amazon web services as the segment which offers abroad head of global compute storage database and other service offerings now in two thousand eighteen aws recorded about twenty six billion dollars in sales now if you look at Microsoft Microsoft Commercial Cloud in two thousand eighteen actually recorded thirty eight billion dollars in sales so thirty eight billion is more than twenty six billion yen yet Amazon's the cloud leader right how can this be Mac if you look in in Microsoft's Ten k the way they define their commercial cloud is commercial revenue includes Microsoft Office three sixty five commercial Microsoft Azure or Azure however you prefer to pronounce getting we know it's Azure the commercial of linked in Microsoft Dynamics three sixty five other cloud property so my point being is when when Microsoft talks about cloud they're defining thing it a little bit more broadly and so that's why you see Microsoft with that thirty eight billion versus Obama San's twenty-six playing but really what we're talking about is this infrastructure as a service that's what Azure is Microsoft is I mean Amazon is really it's the building blocks of the cloud there in so while Amazon is the leader in that space with basically half market share fifty percent of that market share in it's about the same it's actually more than the next four players combine Microsoft is wrong number two player in the space and they're gaining market share so political motives aside I mean there is a business case to be made forgiving Microsoft this contract is is my ultimate points we shouldn't be surprised by this yeah Jason Cheer Point this is a rumored to be about ten billion dollar contracts when you think about the size of the businesses this is huge and with aws like you mentioned having about fifty percent of the market share in Azure being much further behind was sixteen percent according to partner this contract moves a lot of needles for these companies so I think Microsoft even though this is great for them but they were very clearly surprised hi this earlier this year they're the ones beating the table saying that a ten billion dollar contract was way too big just to give to one company in the DOJ should look into using multiple providers I think it's clear that they definitely were surprised by this news as well because even earlier this year they may be by making that comment felt kind of behind aws nothing a lot of people were surprised maybe it is I think most people think because of Amazon's experience in the space in the contracts they've locked up to this point it's probably the most sensible fit again I mean it is a matter of of what the services are needed for in in what you're ultimately trying to do with those services Microsoft cloud services they've placed a big assist on a and analytics it's not to say that Amazon doesn't have those capabilities but Microsoft has been investing more in that so perhaps this Djeddai contract is they're going to benefit more from the A. and the analytics and they felt like Microsoft was a better fit but at the end of the day again I mean I think it makes sense from a customer's perspective you look at Amazon and you okay they've got basically fifty percent market share but you also don't want to be signing up and putting all of your eggs essentially in that one basket I mean you get into that the point of failure risk there and if something happens to Amazon your entire cloud infrastructure he gets kind of flushed down the toilets you have to be very careful how you're picking this and in so being customers being very deliberate about how they choose their providers and then also diversifying as being a single provider I I think makes a lot of sense and emily Eh to your point I assume that Microsoft will no longer be complaining about the size of the ten billion and say
Drug Makers Consider $18 Billion Settlement in Opioid Crisis
"Drug companies are trying desperately to reach a settlement on thousands of opioid lawsuits that's because they'll be in federal court on Monday in Cleveland if they don't NPR has learned that the judge handling the case has already rejected one proposed deal that was valued at about eighteen billion dollars and the New York Times reported late yesterday that a new settlement proposal is now on the table it is worth as much as fifty billion Brian man with north country public radio covers opioid litigation for NPR good morning Brian I know so a lot up in the air here we're do things stand right now yeah we know the talks are intense there is this deadline looming because of Monday start of the trial judge Dan pollster who's running the show is keeping a very tight lid on these negotiations so none of the companies involved are confirming those dollar figures what they have said is that they want to deal big drug distributors like McKesson AmerisourceBergen and cardinal health and also drug makers like tavern and Johnson and Johnson they want some kind of global settlement it'll end this seemingly endless wave of opioid lawsuits more than twenty three hundred suits have been filed okay so they want to deal just to get out of this to get through this so far no deal yet not yet we heard from attorneys representing a lot of these local governments that are suing late last night they said no deal has happened yet one wrinkled no well is that the drug industry seems to want a lot of control over how settlement money would be spent what programs the dollars would find and they also won a lot of the payout to come in the form of medication addiction relief drugs and product that they would give not actual cash and a lot of these companies communities I should say say they need money they've spent billions of dollars on law enforcement and we have programs in foster care so they want money another big issue in these talks is whether or not firms will admit to any wrongdoing at the deal that we heard about last month with Purdue pharma they refused to have college any wrongdoing in the opioid epidemic and and that failure to admit responsibility has driven some states to reject the deal alright so while these talks are under way with tens of billions of dollars on the line what is happening with this trial so far it's still moving forward all the machinery of jury selection is going on that took place yesterday and will happen again today so the pressure gets more intense day by day to reach some kind of deal before those opening arguments happen at nine AM Monday I understand this is supposed to be a big test case no well I mean the trial if it goes forward would establish the full scope of the drug industry's liability for this epidemic and interestingly the judge overseeing the trial judge poster has said to openly he prefers a settlement he'd like for this to get resolved why why not why not go to trial well I think the big thing is for everyone involved a trial equals uncertainty and a lot of risk companies that made and distributed opioids have been losing in court Johnson and Johnson lost a big civil trial this summer in Oklahoma valued at hundreds of millions of dollars in back in may a jury found executives with insist therapeutics guilty on criminal charges so the liability could be massive if this jury in Cleveland fines against the industry and forces it to pay to clean up this opioid epidemic there's also just a lot of bad PR that could come from this so that's something these companies want to avoid all right Bryan man thanks so much thank you know well Brian man with north country public radio covers opioid litigation for NPR and he will be in

"eighteen billion dollars" Discussed on KDWN 720AM
"Whole CS go thing really. it was just so much in so many places as as Rick said and also I think when you have delta door would delta was doing all the sources are going near causes make you eighteen billion dollars every year Jody is clearly the favored child a valve so when it comes to the professionals this is a big deal because guess someone dreamhack are two of let's say arguably the larger leagues that operate for CS go both of them trying to combine their efforts into a single for kids that's pretty important for like the narrative of CS go not only is it important for the narrative of C. as go the bigger thing that they're really trying to do is create forward momentum when you have lots of these large events that seem to pop off you can't tell me which one is the one the one right like you can never say okay well maybe I can't make this one but I know that the next one's gonna be much bigger right now what they're trying to do is they're trying to use all the smaller qualifiers building to the to like large championships every single you right in the same way where you have like you know in college basketball you got like the big ten tournament in our SEC turned me Dan if you were a scrub you get to go to an I. T. right why do you get to go to the the big day I found on the like put together so it sounds to me like you know where is we've got things with like the league of legends where that's kind of an hour's the NFL is a season of play okay and over watch the same way this sounds a lot more like golf tennis where there was a smattering of tournaments you can earn some points and maybe you qualify for some bigger tournaments at the end of the year with those points the fighting game community's kinda yeah same way phones is actually the same way they all majors and then a super major I evil acts of the idea of the S. all pro tours were gonna take it baseball the major ESL and dreamhack events we're gonna smash them together into one collaborative event and of those twenty tournaments will basically form a season SO also record does this do for you know places like refresh entertainment that have really tried to make a go of you know getting. you know getting their foot in the door or or you know dipping their toe in the water of turning in organizing or what is this due to the star ladder series which seem to be left on the outskirts of this yes go open circuit really what is going to be doing is opening a few more doors to not only some different organizations but also the people that are where the teams that were just never invited as it's been so far it's essentially been very clicky it's been you know you either get the invite you don't get the invite and bass it there's no way to get into the cool kids club what they're trying to do as I said where they're trying to push forward to all these different larger events what they're wanting to do is just have more bodies and more **** in seats which means that they're going to be say Hey you're organizing a teammate you want to organize an event called on a and yeah they're just trying to make it so it's more accessible to more people because as of right now she is go is one of the largest and oldest gaming communities but when it comes to like an actual E. sports organization dead last out of you know just really when it stacks up to most other places well it and I think a part of that is the narrative challenge right like when you're so fractured and spread among so many different events you know we have a great narrative in astrology last year and you know for them to kind of be taken out by having to compete in in refresh entertainment events this year you know it really damages the ongoing narrative that ends up forming around some of these teams it is it is for someone like me who's a C. as gold lame and I don't know how to make heads or tails of who is actually good over a period of time outside of team liquid right now who lives beat everybody so outside of that I don't know how to look at you know a separate teams at all while their third place in the standings in the you read some stuff he's all man I really like I want to check them out they seem like they be a fun team to watch it's very hard for Rick as you said for new people to penetrate into CS going I think this is really intelligent for them to move forward to get more people involved in the. sports so I think I guess my question is. is the game better served as trying to create that singular narrative you know what it's gonna run throughout the entire season are throughout a you know a year or does it lose some of the prestige that some of these tournaments have by doing this because if you're not one of those two big tournaments at the end of the year your kind of be relegated to the kids table are true and that's how I did it like the feeling to me is like those two events now that our must see are the other one still worth watching I still think the other ones are worth watching just only because this isn't gonna be at next year all of a sudden everything's totally different right like the narratives to years and years and years to sort of build and especially with a lot of the teams the issue of having the fracture different finals and what not it has really been one of those things to wear just because you win a giant star ladder or you win the giant you know a vent that doesn't make you the I team liquid Israeli you know right now yes they may be on top but for a long long time he was a ninja pajamas or is a straw as there is these different teams and what not and just because they didn't go to a tournament and somebody else one it did it mean that all thought and it S. Rolland right so really I think this is going to be while it may relegate some people to the kids table I think they were already at the kids table but I reject that notion though Joe because that's like saying do you think dad you know combo breaker is the kids table and a FDC it's not people still love to watch a lot of the other events people still love CEO people still. people still love you know faster by the shopping get the hundred dollar price man. Robbie that stings only because it's very partially true. but the thing is is that you know in one of the things that was so difficult to find a foothold in to watching C. Osco is you didn't have these kind of like ten poll vents right leg for over watch you got to grand finals if you can pay attention and no other part of the series watch the grand finals and still be able to walk away from it you know for legal world for league of legends right where you got the summer split in the spring split finals. you have to tune it exactly there was no you must tune in moments like there are great you know there are great tournaments that I know of that I I like watching in that I enjoy but I think that this makes some serious ten pulled tournaments that make for must watch tournaments so let me ask you recommend does this help CS go I don't think it's not popular here but if we think of worse yes because popular Europe is like the hot bed it's the hot bed of of of kind of strike does this help it catch on more in North America where viewers are more used to watching a narrative driven leave or a seasoned style way of presenting the the games no I I don't believe that it's actually going to lead towards penetrating North America and really the big reason why is that the reason has a call as much in North America from my understanding is not the lack of narrative but really kind of the the complexity of the actual like the game itself right what are you so I mean we're too dumb to understand. I'm.

You think in, you know, even think practitioners medical doctors even natural practitioners. It's even think about allergy and the gut, you think about algae. And the sinus, you think about allergy in the lungs, but the gut where's the connection? Yeah. It's a little counter intuitive for a lot of people, but the national institutes of health funded a study reported that the microbiome adults with allergies is significantly different than the micro vitamin B without allergies. So there's the late between the gut and the allergies, and we find out that when you have poor microbiome or an imbalance in your gut bacteria, you have leaky gut, you have increased inflammation, and that really exacerbates increases the risk for allergies. When you talk about micro by on can you explain a little bit to our audience on any new people who've not, you know, been informed about what that quickly.

"eighteen billion dollars" Discussed on KOMO
"Station. Komo news one thousand FM ninety seven seven the US and China are still tied up in a trade war with hundreds of billions of dollars in tariffs in play. Now a Twitter threat from President Trump with talk of new tariffs on eleven billion dollars worth of European Union goods. Komo's Lisa Jaffe tells us the president says e you subsidies to Airbus hurt the US ABC's Mark Remillard joins us on the KOMO Newsline. We've already got this issue with China market. Now, the US and a you have been involved in this going on for years, but break it down for us. And how might this affect us this possible retaliation? Yes. So this stems from litigation essentially between the US, and he you've been going on for fourteen years over what the US said were illegal subsidies to Airbus which helped gain a competitive air edge for Airbus. Undercutting Boeing, the US says it costs a eleven billion dollars in in eventual cost here in the US because of those subsidies, and I say that from nineteen sixty eight to two thousand six Airbus received eighteen billion dollars in subsidies from NEC particularly targeting France, Germany, Spain in the UK, so what the US and now says is they've put out a list of thousands of products that they say could potentially receive tariffs that the in retaliation a eleven point two billion dollars worth. So almost an equal amount of retaliatory tariffs over this. Now, the World Trade Organization will kind of have the final say over to how much relief the US is is legally given in response to those illegal subsidies. But it does signal a breakdown in the talks between the US and EU at a time. When the EU economy is struggling, and then manage you mentioned there is still an ongoing trade dispute between the US and China now. Eleven billion dollars in tariffs is relatively small compared to the tariffs between the US and China. But again, it a more signal strategy here from President Trump as to how he wants to deal with trade between the US and other countries. These tit for tat tariffs, then you know, the going on with the EU. What's it gonna do to us? How might affect us here in the US? Yeah. You might. Yeah. Number of goods, consumer goods could be affected by this. So on one end, you know, there's the tariffs would target helicopters airplanes. Air air related products because this certainly involved Airbus. However, also looking at other things like famous cheeses wines from France and other countries. That could be affected by this. So consumer products that we buy an import from the European Union ceramics, knives pajamas seafood. Oysters. I it's a very wide ranging list. And it's rare that these things are publicly put out this way. And perhaps that's part of the strategy. Here was to essentially signal to the EU hears. It all the things that we're looking at that we may put tariffs on and that could force a you to choose to settle this rather than to really go through the process with the World Trade Organization who knows obviously that'll be up to them. But a very wide ranging list of products here that could result in higher prices for consumers in the US any reaction from lawmakers today. Marcano the calls for a halt to tariffs were extremely loud. After the hundreds of billions of dollars in tariffs were put in place with China. What about with the smaller amount? I haven't seen too much reaction on this side of the Atlantic. However over in the EU in Germany, for example, German Chancellor of commerce, essentially said, you know, there are enough tariffs in that. In the US shouldn't be making further escalating threats, and that both sides should keep a cool head ABC's. Mark Remillard, thanks so much. Mark. That's komo's Lisa Jaffe..

Probably grossing significantly less in Adra nil or netting significantly listen Ed revenue than that. And yet it the different viewer right at the different demographic. And so I mean that that's immediately. What comes to mind? Awesome advice. Trevor that's really good stuff because you were involved so much remarketing. I have to ask you this. Is there a strategy to portraying the father as the dope or the family man that kinda guy who just has seemed to have given up on life because the way dads are presented on TV and in the movies, even the advertisements? It doesn't really match up most of the dads that I know I always call it an attack on fatherhood in the sense. Is there anything to that? From a marketing standpoint, a little difference between marketing and entertainment, and in the entertainment realm that is absolutely eight marketing is an image of what could be and undertain -ment is painting image of something that is in an extreme manner. And so in marketing, you know. If you're going to sell something to a dad, then you you paint the image of what could be in a desire to make that a reality for them. They then buy it. And our problem right now is with entertainment, and you know to be somewhat blunt. Thing is is with and I have no problem with this. I love my girls more than anything on the planet, and my wife, but it's someone is Asian of our culture where these masculine traits. We look at as inherently wrong that it's almost the caveman side of us, and that we we should not want to be masculine. We we need to seminars everything and in doing so. It creates a Poletti that is hard to reconcile. And so when you see this dose of dad on TV at cetera almost Austin. He's either extremely. Feminizing or extremely masculine. And there's very few people who fit into one of those two extremes. You know, the the curve in the middle is a balance between the two, but a ballast doesn't spell nor do people want to watch a balance because that's boring that curve right in the middle is is the boring area. And so we seek for these extremes. I think that as we come to accept as disasters occur internally. And externally we start to kind of embody more and more. What what we really are? And when we do that. We will look it's been over ten years since last crisis people who weren't affected by two thousand eight when they are quickly find that to per flew things don't matter while they're trying to just simply survive, and you know, it's been how many years since nine eleven the next time. We have something domestically as as registered that. Again, there won't be. Time for all the the superfluous. I d is like I wanna be careful I say, you don't want to don't wanna paint the wrong opinion. But in moments of real life. Not just kind of the fairy tales that were able to live in right now. Because of. The state of of reality. Once we hit realize again, I think that a lot of that will and should change at least on an individual level entertainment. But you know, but but in our actual realities. Yeah. Very good points..
