Also, of course, you know, maybe people had a little extra money to invest because so many restaurants and shops were closed also, maybe people sense an opportunity to buy stocks cheap when the stock market collapsed in the first month of the pandemic, whatever the reason Robin Hood announced recently that the amount of money, it makes people trading on its APP doubled in the second quarter of the year two, one, hundred, eighty, million dollars.

And Robert also offers free stocks to people who sign up for a trial run into people who convince others to sign up. James. mccomb is twenty five lives in Long Island. New York he is a big robinhood user and there are several things he likes about Robin, Hood's design and how simple and seamless it is to keep track of what's happening for any company. He is interested in it's a great APP for easy information almost like a news feed but for stocks plus the Robin Hood. Shows a ranking the most popular stocks that other robinhood traders have been buying which. You know my convince new traders to join the party James. HIMSELF INVESTED MONEY IN UBER stock partly because it was number one on Robin Hoods popularity ranking I can kind of get a little bit of a sense of confidence like okay. People believe in this company because it's literally number one on the list currently James is what is known as a retail trader, which is basically anyone who buys and sells stocks for their own personal account not a professional investor who manages other people's money. In this year, it is retail traders like James who've really thrown themselves into the stock. Market. Because the US stock market has gone up in recent months, even hitting a new record high last week a lot of these retail traders have made quite a bit of money lately but other, maybe some reasons to worry that. So many retail traders have started buying and selling stocks using APPs like Robin Hood I would say two parts worried one part. Happy. This is Colin camerer. He's a behavioral economist at Caltech and he has studied the ways that people invest in the stock market collinses. One good thing about Robin Hood is it by making it so? Easy to start buying stocks. It might get people invested in the stock market who otherwise might never have bothered at all, and this can also help people learn more about how specific companies operate into to better understand how the economy works. Especially these days the digital age when it's so easy to find useful information. You know there's a lot of stuff under the hood, the economy, and it'd be good if people knew more about that and they may learn some by just buying selling shares of a particular stock and learning about what boards of directors do. You know how companies actually operate conn said, he was only one part happy and two parts worried about Robin Hoods popularity with retail traders. So here's why he's worried if there is one conclusion that the research about financial markets keeps arriving at again and again it's the individual traders who actively try to pick specific stocks buying stocks. They think we'll go up selling the stocks I think we'll go down are very likely to underperform the overall stock market and this does not just apply to retail traders it also applies. To professional money managers over the last five years eighty, two percent of mutual funds that tried to pick stocks underperformed the overall stock market, which means that most people are just better off investing in what they call an index fund that just tracks the performance at the stock market goes up and down with it over time and Collins says, retail traders are also vulnerable to psychological by sees lead them to make bad decisions when they invest especially, if they don't understand the risks that they're taking if you're buying somebody's selling. And you have to be confident that you're buying from someone who knows less than you about the future of the. So one of the elements in in retail trading is overconfidence. Everybody thinks they're above average also confetti. And? Just. Sucks right in. plus people fall victim to what's known as the disposition effect which makes people sell stocks that have gone up a little too soon missing out on making even more money people have a tendency to sell toxin went up and we think it's because there's a special kind of. Realization utility from actually locking gain and clicking and like seeing in your bank account. From your portfolio numbers on the screen into your bank account or something like would. So people so winners too soon and similarly they tend to hang onto losers typically in a kind of blind faith that it's GonNa Bounce back making these kinds of trading mistakes something that happens when people are actively and frequently buying and selling stocks, and of course, the ROBINHOOD APP is designed to get people to do just that and Robin Hood's business model actually depends on it.

Election Security is (mostly) Solvable

"This is solvable. I'm Jacob Weisberg. So you can talk about fake news and propaganda and ASTROTURF ING. All of those things hacked the greater process that conversation around the election. Election meddling undermines with sits at the foundation of American. Democracy confidence in our voting system. Whether hacking takes the form of masking the original source of a campaign message to make it seem like it comes from the grass roots, so called ASTROTURF. For disseminating intentionally false. It all leads Americans to question the legitimacy of the democratic process. In Two thousand sixteen, we discovered russian-backed hackers will responsible for disinformation campaigns in response Congress directed three hundred eighty million dollars to the fifty states to boost election security, but did it really help. Is it useful to compare electoral outcomes to poll results? You're not gonNA believe it right. The problem of voting as opposed to any other computer security mechanism. Is that after the fact? It's part. Is there a problem with the expectation? We have then that the a winner of election ought to be declared immediately, so yes, a slower process would enable us to do more checking before announcing anything. The American people don't like that. Even going to sleep before knowing is bad. With increasingly long election fees I'd sleep better on election hearing the Mike candidate one, but wouldn't we all sleep better knowing that whatever the result it was guaranteed to be accurate. The tech is real tech assault. None of what you've described is exotic or untried. Why is it been so difficult to convince other states to to put in place some of these already available voting techniques. Cause the problems are not technical, the problems or political. Elections security is mostly solvable. Bruce Schneier is an internationally renowned security technologists. He teaches cybersecurity at the Harvard Kennedy School. I Co host Malcolm Bradwell talked with Schneier about the threats that loom over the vote this fall when we talk about elections being hacked. What does that mean I'm assuming that there are fifty different things that fall into that category. So we'll talk about the hacking the voting process. It's a process by which you cast your vote. We also talk about hacking the broader electoral process so when the Hack Democratic National Committee and posted a dump a lot of information online. They weren't hacking the vote. They were hacking the overall election process, so you can talk about fake news and propaganda and Astroturf, and those things hacked the greater process that conversation around the election. And that's one very separate branch, the other branches hacking the vote itself or the process by which you and I go to vote and there you have four places where you can affect things sort of affect the outcome. The first registration process. And we've read about and seen different hacks on the voting rolls so that when you go to vote, you can't at that point. This particular kind of hacking. Is it really about taking people off the rolls? A couple of things in California some years ago, people had their party. Affiliation changed from Republican to Democrat. You can change the address of somebody, so they go to vote. And they were told to go to a different Pole, and some of these are easy. Many states have. Online systems to change your registration aren't well indicated. Others is to Pull people off the voting rolls. Others are to erase the voting rolls. What happens if we get to election day? In a certain state in the voting rolls don't work, and we don't know why, so a lot of things against the voting rolls. The second is the thing we talk about all the time. which is vote itself. Is Your vote recorded accurately? The third. Is the tabulation process matter how you vote? There's this sort of automated sort of manual process by which the numbers out of each machine get increasingly aggregated the numbers in the the building the numbers in the precinct, the numbers in the town of the city, the state all the way up to the national, if if that matters. And then the last which I think people don't think about a lot is the reporting process and we have seen, and this was something that we think was thwarted in in twenty eighteen. Erroneous reporting. where the number right, but the press release says the opposite.

Planned Parenthood Improperly Claimed $80 Million in Coronavirus-Relief Loans

"Morning which organizations should get money from the federal government's coronavirus relief programs like many Planned Parenthood chapters around this country received funds from the paycheck protection program several Republican senators now want Planned Parenthood to return the money NPR national correspondent Jeremy cameras on the story Sarah good morning good morning Steve what did the Planned Parenthood chapters receive exactly so what we're talking about is the federal loan program under what's known as the cares act the one meant to keep small business workers on the payroll during this crisis so small businesses and small nonprofits with fewer than five hundred employees can apply for forgivable loans and it's important to note that while Planned Parenthood federation of America is a big national organization the national groups as they did not apply for these funds instead it's the local Planned Parenthood organizations that operate clinics around the country that received the money I talked with Stephanie frame the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of southwest and central Florida she says they got a little over two million dollars mostly to cover employee paychecks economic uncertainty at that moment was profound and the two weeks while we waited for this loan we spent having some very tough conversations about what we do we didn't get a strong so it's not clear how much Planned Parenthood or its affiliated groups have applied for or received nation wide fox news has reported and some Republican senators have repeated a figure of eighty million dollars combined nationally but the small business administration which administrates these loans would only say that the agency doesn't comment on individual borrowers okay but in any case the money was loaned to these Planned Parenthood chapters loans that they may not have to pay back if they keep people on the payroll like a lot of other businesses and non profits but this particular nonprofit does work that some Republican lawmakers are ideologically opposed to what they say right a Florida senator Marco Rubio who's chairman of the Senate small business committee says that Planned Parenthood isn't eligible for these funds under the program's rules he wants the money returned immediately he wants the SBA the small business administration to investigate why and how Planned Parenthood got the money and I talked with Republican senator James Lankford of Oklahoma who's also objected to this he also wants Planned Parenthood to send the money back that's what the Los Angeles Lakers are done that's what check check is done that's where risk Chris is done so other organizations arms exposed that they should not taken the money have returned the money so that would be the reasonable thing for them to be able to beat and Lankford says because Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide have many more than five hundred employees combined they don't qualify so Steve there's some dispute about how to interpret these rules but let's not forget there is a big political element to this I mean currently it is illegal in most cases for federal funds to pay for abortion but there is a long standing political debate about any federal funds going to Planned Parenthood because of what it has come to represent about the national debate around abortion and of course Planned Parenthood has argued they do a whole lot more than that perform abortions how is Planned Parenthood responding to the specific criticism here well they say they haven't received word from the SBA small business administration about this they only know what Republican senators are saying and what's been reported by fox which says that the SBA has sent a letter to Planned Parenthood affiliates informing them that they're not eligible for this money and instructing them to return it but again SBA isn't commenting on this are you able to figure out what the rules actually say and how they actually apply to this particular organization it's hard to say for sure Steve I talked to a few lawyers about this and I'm hearing that there is just a lot of confusion Republican senators insists Planned Parenthood doesn't qualify under the rules Planned Parenthood says each local affiliate looked at the program decided whether to apply for this paycheck support but a lot of lawyers say the rules are unclear and they've been

How Jessi Hempel Went from Poet to Podcast Host

"Let's start at the beginning. I as I said you've had an extraordinary career as a journalist but I'd love to know how you ought the writing bog were you. You know. Extremely curious a child yeah. It was extremely curious as a child but I also just was always a writer just from the beginning of time I was a writer I wanted to grow up and write poetry and science fiction and I went to college and I got a degree in poetry and remember coming out of college in going into the Barnes and noble which was Believe it or not the big corporate media of bookstores back then. Because that's how old I am and I looked in the big book of First Year. Salary is and I looked up poet. Remember 'cause I was with a friend and that friend was a nurse and she looked up nursing. It said fifty thousand dollars a year and she thought sweet. I'm set and I looked. Poyton said twelve dollars a year. Yeah and I knew I could not survive on twelve dollars a year and I was going to have to take the writing and do something with it. That was going to help me pay the rent. And that's really how I got turned in the direction of journalism. My mother is going to enjoy this because she is a poet and she can vouch. that You can't really make a living which is a shame. Do you still write poetry You know I don't. I still read a lot of poetry. I feel like my work is colored by the early work. I did around the construction of language but no I don't like a lot of poetry. I hope your mom's still. She does your mom she does. She doesn't she's she's published books and she was actually a poem. I was in a textbook at my arrival. High School so She's once in prizes and things like that. That's the only time you really make any money. So so when you made this move did you. What was your first job? Not Business Week somewhere else. No so I did a lot of different things in my early twenty S I. I ended up going to graduate school at Berkeley for Journalism. Had A great program and I came out when I was about twenty eight and at first I wanted to be a foreign correspondent and I went to Hong Kong and I did some writing for time time Asia and then I discovered business and I discovered business journalism and I got extremely passionate about it because I quickly I learned that if you want to understand how the world is working and you understand how business works he will. You will do a lot better at understanding how everything else worked. And so I went to Business Week and while I was at business. Week I met a very young mark Zuckerberg. Wow and that is really the start of how I started. Writing about technology I started writing about social networking in two thousand four and two thousand five. So we're you just assigned to detail you gotta go talk to the sky or like. How did that all happen? And what was he like Well so I'm embarrassed to tell you this because it's not gonNa make me out to sound like the smartest lady in the room by. I was a huge user of friendster and Earl Ya Ya Ya Ma and mice space and I thought that my space was really innovative. Was just something that I hadn't seen before in two thousand five at that time. Most of my colleagues were much older than me and none of them were actually using services like this and so I asked well. Can I write a little story about my space? And my editors honestly probably at the time just to give me something that was a passion project so I would keep doing the sort of grunt work that I was doing as an intern. Then said sure you can write a story about my space and I did. And then Rupert Murdoch did me a solid and paid five hundred and eighty million dollars for it and everybody looked up and it was my goodness. That must be a business. Didn't Jesse wouldn't you going to write something on that? And we quickly pulled out that story and made a bigger that became my first sort of big story and it was called the mice base generation. And why that slightly embarrassing is because as part of the big story on my space. I made a phone call to this other website that no one was paying attention to call facebook And of course my bet at that point that facebook was just you know the boring version of my space. Did you say something like that in the story? I don't think that of course many many more stories later I did. I chronicled really the rise of facebook in the rise of all of those Social software companies that served to connect to each other so that we could talk to each other on the web. The way that we didn't have you continued to talk to mark Zuckerberg over the years about how things have progressed willow. In a reporting capacity I continued to report on facebook during my time in the profession up until I guess the last big story I did on. Facebook was in probably twenty sixteen and a haven't spoken to him at all in the last couple of years so then of course we know that you go to Fortune I fortune. I and Ben Wired to have that right. Yeah so yep that's right. So as a writer I went from BusinessWeek to Fortune. I spent a lot of years at fortune. Had A great time there on really learned the craft and then I went to wired and I was at wired for the five years really until I came here to Lincoln. How fulfilled were you by that work? Oh Gosh that's a doesn't the truth. Is that the thing that mattered to me. Most was to become a better writer and better storyteller and become better at telling other people story so K. Sky I feel like it is almost more than a job is calling for me. I love the the whole process of figuring out how to tell a story and I love the trust that someone else puts in you when they invite you to tell them their story and really most of the time that I was a writer writing for magazines. I have been able to do that But you know sky as well as I know that that industry has changed so much over the last decade. It's so much So I definitely got to a point where I was looking to grow and I was looking around me and I had written a lot of magazines. Stories are a lot more magazines stories to be written but I was like well. What can I add to this like when I look forward ten years at this company that I'm at which at that point was Conde Nast? Is there a job for me that I can see that? I can't do today but I could grow into and I did stop being able to see things in my own industry. That excited me. Does that mean that you would have been eventually doing less writing and more managing or would it have taken it away from the core of what? You're enjoying yes. There were managing the you know as a as somebody working as a sort of early to mid stage writer and reporter in the sort of more traditional media industry. Often you get to a place in your career where there are two doors. There is the editor door in there as the writer door. And if you choose the editor door then you may go into a series of roles that involves Making other people's work beautiful and also managing people on and I chose the writers door I wanted to remain an independent contributor telling stories in doing that kind of work I guess when I say like ways that I could grow I meant sort of exactly what I'm doing now. Opportunities to try storytelling and other mediums on an opportunity to have bigger and better stages to do that.

How Women of Color Are Shaping Our Democracy

"So I always like to start with everyone introduce do some cells but of course I also had to ask everyone a question along with that. So can you tell everyone your name where you work which you do and what has has been one of your favorite moments from this election cycle so far. I know there's so many to choose from because even though it's only January sorry this thing has been long. But what's one of the things that has been in the forefront of your mind. Hi everyone thanks so much for having me on the show My name is unleashes saying I am the Director of Judiciary Democracy Affairs at planned. Parenthood Action Fund. My main role is to make sure that we are linking and connecting the dots on why reproductive healthcare is so important and why the courts and democracy reform or so crucial for protecting our rights when it comes to reproductive health. Care one of the things I mean. There's so many things that have been I feel like monumental in this cycle but one of them is the fact that there are and have been so many women who were running for presidency and what that really means for communities of color what that means for communities across the board what that means for young people who are looking and seeing people represented on the screen when watching these debates when watching the campaign trail and seeing that reflection and then what that has meant for the conversation as well right. We've seen all the Democratic candidates. Come out in favour and support of reproductive rights in repealing the Hyde amendment all of which I truly truly believe we can pay tribute to the fact that there are so many diverse voices that are pushing each other to be bolder and vocally boulder in their policies. Hey you too often. I'm Richard from Los Angeles. California live here in the area. I'm the national director for the college. Division at the National Association for the events and of color people for now referred to as P and I have to so one of the last night when Elizabeth Warren said or she made the awareness known that all the women have not lost an election but all over to elections. I thought that was pretty. Shed asked I was like I think she's had a lot of iconic moments. Yeah I love the very visible presence and leadership of black woman the campaigns I love the chief of staff from Leon Castro's Camp I love watching Black Women for Warren and love watching black woman for Bernie. I mean this this notion that like there needs to be a special emphasis that is very public and other public for black women. So it doesn't matter you've ever moments in this campaign so far yes I do not like how many debates we're having and how late they are and how they they they are late imile. I'm emily career and I am the one of the national national campaigns directors at the League of Conservation Voters Lcd. We elect environmental champions At all levels of government and hold them accountable in two thousand. Eighteen were One of the top outside spenders in electoral politics spinning over eighty million dollars to help get environmental champions elected on the ballot I actually actually have to favorite moments I would say.

I would say the second. One is similar in terms of a diversity of of staff on these campaigns and the height. How hyped highlighted They are. It's very tough to be a minority as a political and to have that standard and to have that bar and feel like Minorities have an opportunity to work in this business. is huge It's really changing. The face of how campaigns are being put together and who's clean the lovers our next question talking talking about women of Color voters. We know that will be crucial to this election cycle. You can't win without us. That's just how it is and we are one at every four voters in Florida Texas Arizona and Georgia. How have you already seen women of color shape? This election cycle particularly the work that you do. I think this is like like such a crucial moment. And we've really seen this wave of engagement and energy and progress being made when you look at the Reproductive Justice Movement and special shout Out to groups like all above all and others that have really paved the way for reproductive health care and reproductive freedom reproductive justice issues and legislative policies. I mean they are responsible for the fact that we're seeing all these Democratic candidates saying that. They're they want to repeal the Hyde amendment though the push of the conversation and the narrative of in that direction has been particularly helpful with because of the leadership coming from reproductive justice organizations. And I would say I'm just to piggyback on that much planned. Parenthood you know we have seen affiliates as well and we were huge in the Virginia Sweep in November and Virginia affiliate Elliot endorsed sixty two candidates. That were pro-climate. Three of them were women. More than a dozen were women of color so you have folks like delegate Hashmi who who and also folks like Jinro Tucson who won their races Who ran on climate?

Who wants and to really advanced certain issues like climate change in everyday you know I guess highlight it at a level that necessarily may not be through the Lens of of a minority female now and especially in communities where they are Less not less equal.

Are Super Bowl Ads Really Worth $30 Million?

Are Super Bowl Ads Really Worth $30 Million?

"The Super Bowl is literally the Super Bowl of advertising. The twenty fifth super bowl broadcast drew a record breaking TV audience of one hundred and fourteen point four million viewers. It's since dropped a bit to ninety eight point two million viewers whereas of two thousand nineteen but still there is no other United States televised event but even comes close to the drawing power of the big game making it the ultimate platform for advertisers answers to pitch their pickup trucks beer and misogynist web hosting services. Exactly how much is it worth to them. Up to five point six million dollars dollars. That's the highest going rate for a single thirty second commercial during Super Bowl. Fifty four broadcast on Fox but five million is only the tip of the iceberg most super bowl advertisers drain their budgets on. CGI Talking Animals and big name celebrity endorsements making the real cost of producing a super bowl ad. Close for thirty million dollars. I but how is it possible. That spending thirty million dollars in thirty seconds is a brilliant marketing plan. For that price. You could buy sixty commercials at five hundred thousand thousand dollars. A pop during the highest rated shows on television does the Super Bowl offer a super return on investment that can't be matched by mere mortal TV broadcasts. There's some serious math involved. In answering that question marketing professors Wesley Hartman of these Stanford Graduate School of Business and Daniel Clapper of Berlin's Humboldt University conducted an in-depth economic analysis of the return on investment of Super Bowl ads and their results seemed confirm. What Madison Avenue has been selling for years Super Bowl ads? ADS deliver a significant boost in revenue between ten to fifteen percent per household in the weeks following the broadcast. That's an Roi of one hundred fifty to one hundred seventy percent can't Hartman and clapper focused their research on beer and soda brands. That advertise during multiple super bowls the researchers compared TV ratings information and for more than fifty US markets with detailed beer and Soda Sales Data from stores in those same geographical areas when Budweiser Pepsi ran ads. During the Super Bowl it was like dropping a fat stone in a pond with the ripple effect boosting sales for weeks to come some super bowl advertisers. Don't even have to wait for the ripple effect remember go go. Daddy Dot Com the aforementioned controversial web hosting company. The Monday after reading. It's twenty twelve super bowl ad in which a supermodel kisses a nerd go daddy dot com recorded. Its it's best sales day ever so case closed five million or even thirty million dollars on thirty seconds money well spent If it were only that simple symbol like all good stories. This one has a twist it turns out that the super bowl boost only goes into effect if a single beer or soda brand advertisers during the game if a competitor also plays an ad those gains become losses the researchers call it. A CLASSIC PRISONER'S DILEMMA. Here's how it works. If for example both coke and Pepsi do not advertise during the Super Bowl. They will both still earn over a billion dollars in profit over the eight weeks following the game if if either coke or Pepsi advertises but not both the brand advertisers gets twenty seven million bump in profit but if both coke and Pepsi advertise advertise during the same game. Each brand earns eighty million dollars less than if they hadn't advertised at all so to advertise or not to advertise according to Hartman and clapper's calculations for industries with just two or three major players. You might get a better pay off by sitting out the super bowl but again there. Research focused exclusively on beer and soda. Not trucks insurance shoes restaurants in all the other stuff pedaled during the Super Bowl and let's not forget that advertising is not just about immediate boosts and revenue it's also about brand recognition. There's no bigger stage. Debut Your brand then the Super Bowl in two thousand fourteen survey seventy eight percent. Central Americans said they looked forward to the super bowl more for the commercials than for the actual football game. The ads not only played the game but are re posted online and shared via social media a great super bowl. Ad Really can make your brand and a bad one can rake it. Let's take a moment to appreciate arguably the worst super bowl commercial ever. You're in one thousand nine hundred nine. These start-up shoe retailer just for feet hired at agencies the patchy and patchy produce an unforgettable spot for the big game and that's that's exactly what they did the commercial which depicts four white guys in a Humvee hunting down and dragging an African barefoot runner and then fitting his unconscious body was shoes which she hates is certainly unforgettable. Just for feet ended up. Suing Touchy Touchy for ten million dollars and then filing for bankruptcy a few months later while well the discovery of accounting fraud was the main reason you can bet that super bowl ad didn't help the bottom line and that's quite a return on investment.

It's totally sneaky if it costs extra for them to put a safe in your room built that let me know upfront I won't feel so taken advantage of consumer reports. Readers shared hundreds of similar stories people feel held hostage by hidden fees. When they travel not only fees for an end room safe, but towel fees resort fees beach chair fees, some hotels even charge recycling fees for tells no the consumers are shopping for hotel rooms by price. So they try to keep their advertised prices low, but then still make up the revenue on the back end the best way to avoid sticker shock from unexpected hotel charges. Consumer reports says reach out to the hotel directly is specially if you plan to book through a third party ask about specific additional charges for anything other than the room and taxes. If you plan on checking in early or checking out late, you might have to pay extra parking fees can be another budget BUSTER even in outdoor or unsecured. Lots. You joy. Join a hotel loyalty program something a lot of hotels.

We recently lost another music superstar Aretha Franklin the Queen of soul was she was called regarded as one of the finest singers and even piano players in the world for nearly five decades. But even super. For stars can make mistakes and Aretha Franklin made one of the worst and most easily prevented mistakes, she died without an estate plan. Did you hear about this Aretha Franklin left behind four sons and no plan for how they're going to distribute her assets and avoid estate taxes? This is just so sad to me. Because it's preventable. A few hours of planning. What have addressed this? Because here's what's going to happen her private assets are now going to become public. Everybody's gonna know about it. It's going to be printed in the newspaper for you. Anybody to read? And a process known as probate is going to make sure that that happens. Now, she died in the state of Michigan and Michigan state law state that her assets will be distributed evenly between her four sons. But complicating this is the fact that her niece, and I'm not exactly sure why this is happening. But her niece is asking the court to appoint her as the personal Representative of Aretha 's estate. So again, I'm not sure why one of her sons is not maybe there's some family dynamics there. There are always family issues going on. Apparently her attorney, Don Wilson for years had asked her to create a will or trust. But she just never took the time. And now her eighty million dollar estate is going to be subject to taxation and possibly family infighting, and it's all going to be decided by a judge who has no vested interest in any of this a judge in a courtroom a bottom line to all of this..

"The pressure playing and then you went through the eighties and dry drugs are big issue in the eighties then you went to the nineties and guys are nineteen get eighty million dollar contracts just handling bab like the generation then the lebron generation comes in and now everybody handles her business well i was talking to donovan mitchell at the at the finals the guys like he's thirty five years old and he's twenty two tatum's the same way tatum already knows how to be boring and interviews if he's not gonna say anything no and but it's this whole generation i think they learned from the lebron wade bosch generation of kind of how to handle their business and that's my theory so you know i agree with i agree with it i think that we all try to individually create our own like we're we all try to be a trailblazer one way or another in terms of how we view our business the opportunities that were afforded how do we take advantage of that i don't think necessarily you know athletes are just trying to position themselves with with just a brand as just getting paid for it now you know you start looking into the deal itself if you were looking for equity like we're not we we actually want to be part of this if we're going to try to grow this busy rare you like you can use my likeness you can use who i am you know it comes with a lot but the value adding to this is just a lot more than just maybe here take this amount x amount of money to promote his brand cool but now it's like on the back in like what are you what about what am i actually getting from it like what are we getting from wanna cut from two k basically extra tip your fun to k guys is there anything they got wrong with your cake character is there anything that that they did they've could've added that you don't have career my hair man they gave me like that was losing my hair like in the back of my bro i'm not losing my hair so i think you know and then also they completely disrespected me like in terms of giving me a ninety bro how am i going to be the cover athlete and i'm a ninety i was like come on man you know after a while i told him i was gonna work for in the nominee three so i was cool i could go higher that i'm humbly ninety three i don't mind it i just wouldn't love to be over ninety i was hovering around eighty nine ninety the hundred handle a bit for sure you have to the handle them come on when did you start working on the endo would age like six i've been drooling since i was eighteen months really you didn't really start really i didn't start getting creative with it until maybe high school my school always had like i tried to emulate alan iverson's crossover but instead of left to right right to left and then i started kinda working on combinations than it just took off from there yet because watching you especially during some of the more boring games it seems like you were experimenting in the game go onto the rim and be like i know i could this be conventional but i'm going to do a double pump left instead of just goes in it's fun yeah it's fun one on this this is the game is for i know i get the probably the situation may not be right all the time in terms of china but like i think that's kind of wood would separates me as like or a cool you know we we can have the normal stuff mid bull up but then let's throw like a little post up like fade shimmy baseline shooting over the kind of over the side of the glass or the let's get this bank shot going left like floater from the free throw line just try it like a practice it so wanna try it it seems like he does that too sometimes yes i wonder if i could make this thirty seven feet away from the basket and then it goes you can make ends like he confidently shoots that because he practice he works on shoot half course out before he for warm up that's ridiculous right like i've never seen i've never seen a crowd i mean in his the guy who passes the those balls.
