"President joe biden will be in california today to support democratic governor gavin newsom. A day before his recall election recall efforts came after the governor faced stiff criticism over the past year for his handling of the corona virus pandemic and other issues. it's been well funded and supported by big name. Republicans like mike huckabee and newt gingrich but polling earlier. This month showed new. Some would likely remain in office. Numbers from the public policy institute of california found that thirty nine percent of likely voters in the recall would vote to remove some but fifty eight percent would not not surprisingly those opinions varied by party with eighty two percent of republicans in favor of ousting newsom compared to just seven percent of democrats that polling data mart day major change from earlier this summer a uc berkeley pool. As recently as late july found that fifty percent of likely voters wanted to keep new some compared with forty seven percent who supported the recall. This month's polling found that larry elder still lead the pack of potential replacements for newsome. The right wing talk show. Host led the field at twenty six percent this month. Primary remind people why they were angry enough. For one point. Seven million people signed the petition in the first place. A quarter of them were independence. Democrats voted for him. Two years earlier. Majority of hispanics. Now want him out. I think the majority of people are going to vote to recall gavin newsom. And i think the majority and i think i'll get the greatest number of votes to replace it. The next closest candidate was former san. Diego mayor kevin falkiner with just five percent of respondents.

Biden Announces Vaccine Plan for Employers

"Vaccine requirements just announced by president biden are not out of the blue. They're not even the first ones we had for. Covert nineteen as new york times notes today. We've already got experience with large employers starting to require vaccination at among other things. But we've learned from that experience so far. Is that the requirements work. They succeed at their goal of getting more people to get the shot last month. For example the pentagon announced that active duty military personnel would have to get vaccinated that has just been announced so far. They haven't hit a deadline for it yet. But already the proportion of active duty personnel. Who had the shot has gone from. Seventy six percent to eighty three percent. Same deal with the. Va seven weeks ago. The va told its frontline. Health workers they had to get the shot since then the number of va frontline workers who've been vaccinated has gone from seventy seven percent up to eighty two percent and still rising same deal at private sector employers like united airlines for example employees. There were told last month that they'd have until october. Twenty fifth to get vaccinated. Well s- only september tenth. Now there's still plenty of time before that deadline hits but already just since laying out that eventual requirement the majority of united airlines workers who weren't vaccinated before that announcement have since become vaccinated. We know it works and we've had plenty of other vaccine requirements throughout our history. That have also worked. But as the president indicated today we also know that republican governors and republican elected officials will sue and try to stop these new policies as if they're totally novel as if this is some brand new idea. The united states supreme court has ruled multiple times going back more than a century that it is not unconstitutional to require americans to get a vaccine. Even if a person doesn't want to in the context of a serious public health threat you can be required to be vaccinated. They ruled that way back in one thousand nine five in the context of mandatory smallpox vaccine requirement in massachusetts. They ruled that way in nineteen twenty two in the context of vaccines being required of students if they wanted to attend

Interview With Ethan Diamond Of Bandcamp

"And today my conversation with ethan diamond the ceo and co founder of band camp band camp describes itself as an online record store and music community. Any band or musician can post their music on the site sell it and also offer merchandise and tickets for live performances and the artists keep more than eighty percent of the profit band. Camp had been steadily growing since its launch in two thousand seven but last year was its biggest yet. Traffic to the site surged as concerts and festivals. Mostly shut down. You know as you said. We're essentially an online record store and use a community where fans connect with artists and directly. Support them and about half. The business is physical record. So vinyl cassettes cds. A lot of t-shirts as well and then half the business is a digital music. So people buying Digital and digital tracks directly from the artist and we also recently launched live streaming. So now tickets are part of it as well but You know. I would say that the thing that really sets us apart is that we just built the whole company and the welfare of the artist. So we don't we don't sell advertising. We don't really focus on subscriptions. We just help. Artists sell their music. And then we take a small revenue share on every sale. So what to say is that we only make money. If artists make a lot more money and sort of alignment of interest that we have built into our business model is really just everything about i would were. I would say an artist. I music company and something like eighty. Five percent on average of the revenue goes directly to the artist right. Yeah it's it ends up being There's payment processing fees Fee so on our and it varies by transactions is comes out to about eighty two percents that goes directly to the to the artist and then we pay that out every it usually takes about twenty four to forty eight hours. I've heard it described a little bit like esi for independent music. Is that a fair comparison. Totally yeah i and which i take is a complimentary.

Shares began trading at sixty four dollars. Fifty cents which represented a forty three percent increase from a private financing round just in january when the company sold shares for forty five dollars the reference price on tuesday of forty five dollars though no stock changed hands at those levels. The reference price tends to reflect private market trading and does not indicate where a stock will open road blocks hits the market coming off an explosive year of growth primarily from kids who were stuck at home because covid nineteen forced schools to close and sports leagues to shutdown within roadblocks which is one of the top grossing apps on apple and google devices users create.

Three million dollars from seventy one million dollars in two thousand nineteen as the company almost triple. The amount of money paid to develop through its revenue sharing program more than twelve hundred and fifty developers made at least ten thousand dollars last year through virtual sales in their roadblocks games and quote. Now i've said before that in the universe of unicorns among the companies investors. I'm friendly with our most. Enthused about roadblock has been at the top of that list the yardstick i'm using here to measure the level of investor. Excitement is basically when i hear investors. Say something like damn it. I wish i had gotten in early on that company. Roadblocks has been the name most mentioned in that context for about a year. Now the other one by the way is stripe which people have foam mode on forever but over the last year the frenzy around fintech has reached a fever. pitch so stripe has become the company. Everyone's still wishes they were in on early or still wants to get in on now if they can anyway back to roadblocks. You don't have to take my word for it in terms of people's excitement around this company. Here's ben thompson describing how by bringing disparate parts of gaming into one place. Roadblocks is basically created the conditions for interlocking feedback loops. That are very exciting. Quote by controlling. Everything roadblocks can bring all of the disparate parts of gaming into one place instead of one app for social interactions another app for purchases and a different app for every different game. Everything is all in the same place. This also makes roadblocks easier to develop for by constraining graphics to a consistent toolbox. It's very easy to build something new. This creates the conditions for the interlocking feedback loops that characterize transformational products by reducing the prominence and feature set of games. Roadblocks made it possible to create something. Bigger a micro verse. This actually fits the pattern of other transformational products. The feed for instance relies on reducing all types of content from post to photos to links to the same format such that they can all be incorporated into a greater whole. It's a reason why. I think that clubhouse being all audio actually gives it an advantage relative to twitter. That leaves more room for user entrepreneurship. Both in the kinds of rooms created and also norms around behavior twitter realize the same benefits relative to blogs with its one hundred forty character constraint. Similarly roadblocks games aren't really competitive with non roadblocks games. They're worse in any sort of traditional sense because the things that make them better are the parts that are enabled by imposing constraints and quote.

Frankly beyond just You know they're. They're the current environment so that they can pay their bills given that the lockdowns of had such a the capacity have had such a big effect of small business owners. There was a recent article published about small businesses that talks about how eighty two percent of small business owners are ready for digital payments and other digital methods of doing business as well. There was a study that was conducted by visa revealed. The eighty two percent of small business owners are shifting toward digital payments in response to the pandemic now. These small businesses are rolling out new forms of in-store contactless payments to meet the covid nineteen weary customers that are demanding their protection when they go to stores at the point of sale. And if you've gone to places like target recently or gone to places. Some big box retailers. Then you probably have seen some of the different methods that these stores have used to try to accommodate customers like putting barrier protections on the keypads of the payment like bacteria prevention or spread prevention bacteria. Microbe free plastic. Wrap things on the show what they're called but on the keys where you can punch in your code. I hope you still use sanitizer. Because those things say claim that they disinfect like all day which. I'm not too sure about not exactly sure how that works. But but anyways. Contactless payments in digitizing payments in digitizing business transactions is a big thing at the moment a small businesses or hopping onto you know and honestly there's some evidence that has shown that there are a lot of some big reasons. Why small business owners like yourself. Listening to this podcast. You consider this. The eighty two percent increase of small businesses using contactless payments was up according to the study from twenty percent in june. So now it's well. We're february i now january's over so you honestly at this sixty. Two percent increase in june is massive. It's absolutely massive and it. It absolutely shows no signs of slowing down in the new year since the pandemic small businesses have shifted in general digitizing their operation so if in the fitness industry which i know well of course because i have a stake in the fitness industry. Fitness companies have digitized their offerings. Of course everyone knows about some of the massive at home fitness companies. Like peleton have done. Really well and digitizing their brand and capitalizing on that digitize. They should of their brand and even with boutique studios fifty offered virtual studio classes to the members so that their members could have their workout still at home despite being off down and not able to come in so there have been a demonstration across the board in the us of many opportunities as small business. Owners have taken to digitize their small business and this includes at this point contactless payments. And if you're listening to this podcast. He don't contactless payment is think apple apple pay or amazon. Pay or pay pal. Basically you put your credit card into your smartphone and the wallet of your smartphone. When you get to the register you punch in your code or use your face. Ide- your fingerprint recognition and you are able to charge whatever you pay your buying at the register with your phone you just kinda hover it over the the payment system and it automatically takes your payment.

2021 Global Marketing Trends with Deloitte's Ashley Reichheld

"Let's let's talk business. We want to talk a little bit about this report. That deloitte has released the twenty twenty one global marketing trends report. What drove the report in went into it. Well this is our second annual report. But this one was really characterized by the challenges of twenty twenty and that level of uncertainty that we're seeing has really impacted all of us in some way myself my mom of three old trends and well. I thought i was a master at balancing working kids. I've learned a whole new set of work from home. Sales gotta really speedy mute. Button trigger finger pilot fisher price toys under my desk that bear testimony and this year. We really use the study to kind of help explorer and break down some of that uncertainty. We use subject matter expertise. We voices smithfield and two overarching surveys. From consumers up twenty five hundred and executives up just about four hundred of them to help break down that uncertainty in the report a believe it's unified seven trends overall and you go In detail on each of them. But can you tell me kinda just at a high level. Were the the major trends seven themselves are purpose agility human experience trust participation fusion and talent and i think in general agility trust talent participation are fairly straightforward largely those companies without. Do you trust them to do with the say they're gonna do. They have the talent to do it. Do they nibble participation with their stakeholders in the customers. The ones i usually get questions about not understanding are the other three so purpose and that's a company that knows what they exist and therefore can make choices a little bit more rapidly. That sense of purpose helps them particularly in times of uncertainty. Actually because they can they can make tough decisions right away. The second human experience and i often get asked. Hey so white you just call that. What is call it. A spur ends called employee experience. I'm sure we'll talk about this. But the reason we call it human experiences because you don't wake up as customer employees. You wake up as a human being. And if we want to elevate experience we have to understand you as a human and then fusion of course which is that art of bringing together new business partnerships early in the report. You identify this drop in confidence across the c. suite. And just curious. What do you feel drove that drop and this is the second time i've seen this question i guess from deloitte is working with the loye. The cmo team within delay and the cmo club on some prior research. We looked at confidence. Drop or confidence levels. I should say of cmo's in general and while this most recent snapshot shows the drop in confidence. I'm kind of pleased that cmo's aren't last on the list now. A small bright spot in the foreseeable ceelo's but tell us a little bit about this dropping confidence. Well at the start of our chat. I talked about this notion of uncertainty that feeling and basically the research suggests that c. suites are humans to and no exception to that rule so on a percentage basis. Cmos aren't last but they are second to last Within a percentage point of and you actually see the biggest declines with. Cio's an nco's. And i think really what you're seeing is that lots of executives have gone into survival mode and you see them by the way prioritizing things like improved efficiency and productivity over more human centric initiatives in that that instinct is is very common but unfortunately it does run counter to some consumer expectations. When we did this research. We learned that as times. Get tougher consumers. Expect more connection. Not less said consumers are really looking for companies to step up and you have c. suite executives who are uncertain and lacking confidence today. And not really sure the world is heading and it's making it very difficult environment. Operate them in these uncertain times to us over over used phrase currently but one of the other two data points stuck out. I think is a sign of the times potentially i'm gonna stay kotei stats and then we can discuss what we think they mean but fifty eight percent of respondents could recall at least one brand that quickly pivoted to better respond to their needs and eighty two percent said this led to them doing more business with that brand. Seems that these factors kind of together talk about one the agility that you've you mentioned before is one of the trends to this human experience component like are we actually delivering what people really want and value and purpose. I think alignment potentially of those two things like what's going on in the world and what do people really need am i. Do you think. I'm interpreting that right just based on the data and what the trends that you're seeing i do although. I think i'd argue that. The each of the trends has an impact there. If you think about an organization's ability to co create with people so fusion for example if your co creating with people rapidly you're able to respond to create address needs more rapidly if you're encouraging participation from your customers than your doing a good job or hopefully a better job at least of hearing what it is. They need to be able to adopt if customers trust. You more likely to tell you what they need a believe you when it comes out and then of course talent is critical. All these things without talent. You can't do any of them

"Degrade Steve Cortes a man I am pleased to call a friend one of the strongest advocates for conservatism out there Steve Cortes welcome to the show my friend. Dan You're a great. American thanks for having me. Let's together with the audience. Make America great again, a listen man fingers across toes across legs or everything that can be crossed is cross. The alternative is disastrous. Love you on television Cable News and radio I really believe you are one of the strongest advocates for the President is growth agenda out there. It's why I wanted to have you on for our election special here. Let me get right to it. Listen obviously the media sucks I mean we can just get past that. Now we need to you know they're terrible but what are the things that really bothers me about them as they haven't nailed down yet Joe Biden on his cataclysmic middle-class tax bomb coming. He said Steve Repeatedly he's going to repeal the trump tax cuts. Now, anyone can go to the Internet and look up the trump tax cuts. It's not hard and you could see that the middle class got a huge tax cut. So if Biden's go to repeal them, doesn't that mean by default that Joe Biden is going to high taxes on the middle class. Right where you don't have to be a mathematician to follow that logic a lot right eighty, two percent of American people got a tax cut got tax. Because of the momentous 2017 tax cuts, and by the way, let's talk about just how effective those tax cuts have been twenty thousand nineteen. So those tax cuts were in two thousand seventeen didn't really start to take effect until twenty eighteen and really kicked in by twenty thousand nine, which was also the last full year that thank goodness we were free of China virus before we were invaded with this terrible virus and in Twenty nineteen what happened? Well, it was the best year in American history for workers literally now, my opinion, that's what the numbers tell us six point eight percent wage growth an all time record by a mile even. Better than that Dan for the deplorables for blue collar people, nine percent wage growth minorities did better than the average everyone did well, okay. Look we. We don't WanNa put people in the silos and only view that way by identity politics. Everyone did well the wealthy to the most modest earners but the point is this strivers the economic underdogs, the people who had languished so badly lagged behind during the slow growth years that Biden was in the White House those are the people of who leaked to the front because of those tax cuts and I don't want just brag about the past it's happening again right now for example to. Bore your audience with my data but I spent twenty five years on Wall Street. So I spent a lot of time watching the numbers and these numbers lately they are defying Wall Street expectations by the way to define all of the Scottish who thought that we could never get this much ground back this quickly, we know we still have work to do. There are still too many people who are out of work right now because of what the Chinese Communist Party did to the world, but we can also rightly celebrate the amazing economic progress right now in this country and it's particularly due to the open states, i. Call them the Liberty States places like Florida which has opened aggressively, and smartly an economy economy is absolutely humming. So because of this, for example, manufacturing wages just in September, most recent report, hit a new all-time high there up eleven percent so far average hourly earnings for production people not the managers production people in manufacturing that rate, and that's including the pandemic eleven percent so far in the trump presidency and and that rate is fifty percent better than the last four years of Obama Biden and I I say the last four years because I'm trying to be fair here and not Cherry picking penalize them for the Nine recession so. They won't be fair to you I that's very nice. You a noble man I, give them nothing I screw them tired of them but that's very generous. You're a more noble guy than me in that respect but Steve doesn't it infuriated listen my listeners here this every day on my show on my daily show this. The media drives me nuts but this one thing drives me crazy because it's such a simple question that you know I'll be fair from it at Biden could clear up right away. Biden could say, Hey, I'm not gonNA repeal the trump tax cuts because they are tax cuts for the middle class and I'm just GONNA high taxes on the rich with a new bill. You know why he won't say that because they'll have to acknowledge that the media that trump cut taxes for. The middle class that's why he won't answer Becua- that's what I want to pull my hair just ask them the damn question. So you're not going to repeal the taxes just say it right and the media look unfortunately they are all too willing to be complicit in Joe Biden's lies. Let's face it Joe. Biden. Started his entire campaign on a lie on the I think the most malicious lie in American public life, which is the fine people hopes the lie of Charlottesville the. That president trump praised violent bigots in Charlottesville when in fact he said the exact opposite he condemned them totally an explicit terms. So he has been spreading that lie with the media's assistance since the very beginning of his campaign. So unfortunately, if they're willing to spread that live that toxic lie is so divisive and untrue just totally proven untrue. Then of course, they're willing to also help him spa spread lies that probably aren't quite as bad regarding taxes. It's very clear unfortunately that we don't really have. A journalism very much in this country certainly, not in the legacy outlets we do in in platforms like yours but not in the legacy outlets, they're completely corrupted. They're completely on the tank for Joe Biden, and we see it nowhere of more exemplified unfortunately than their intent to completely ignore the biggest story of this entire campaign, which is, of course, the revelations about the Biden cartel selling us out to communist

So they definitely beats on both the top and the bottom lines and depending on how you read this earnings report and the story that you're telling you can paint two very different pictures for Nike. Here skeptics will tell you that their total revenue year-over-year still fell eight percent despite the fact that it was up on a quarterly basis. So this was by no means a blowout quarter in terms of their top line, but if you. Look at the bigger picture, Nike has been changing their distribution strategy, and so the fact that sales weren't down more when they cut so many large distribution partners over the past few months is actually pretty astounding and what we're seeing the market react to here in my opinion is actually the stellar growth online sales online sales grew eighty two percent more than doubling in certain regions of the world. So this is really a testament not only to renewed demand for Nike's products, but it's a good first step in a changing distribution strategy. We also saw that show up in in their inventory and the way they're managing their inventory. It was a little bit of a challenge last quarter they brought some of that down this quarter so nice to see that improvement. Also, seems like Nike is optimistic about the holidays is that fair to say Definitely. Fair to say what's notable about where you saw their sales come in this quarters is that despite the overall contraction compared to the year ago period sales for footwear, their footwear division, which is really core Nike still grew. So I think they're optimistic about renewed demand especially heading into the holiday season but more importantly especially because they put so much emphasis on to their digital sales, which is really going to be what catalyze people to order people. I think it's safe. Assumption are not going to be traveling as much. This holiday season potentially not going to be giving gifts that they aren't able to order online as much as they were last. Year. So the fact that Nike has reinvested so much money into really connecting direct to consumers and a manner that establishes a more of a relationship between Nike and consumers is potentially going to be good for them and holiday sales. But what's worth pointing out here is that they did cut a lot of partners we talked about it previously, but they cut ZAPPA's they cut dillard's so their foot traffic, the people walking into a store and buying a pair of Nikes that's probably going to be down for the foreseeable future they're going to need to prove that they can pull those customers back in to their digital sales to make it worth it. And this is something they've been investing a lot in over the last few years. So I mean this this is one of those quarters where you see those investments pay off but to your point, this is. When you when you cut off partnerships like that. Then, you're doing so with the confidence that you're going to be able to make it up on your own. and. That wasn't an a political decision in the sense that. Seemed like Nike shareholders were split down the middle about whether or not they believed cutting their partners and their distribution wholesalers really were was the best move for the company I tend to be on the side of I like Nike controlling more of their line controlling their relationship with consumers I. Think long term that can give them some pricing power but I have no doubt in. My mind that short term, you're going to see the impact in terms of their top line growth at the margin profile long-term improves as a result but let's be clear here cutting out what they deemed to be lower tier wholesalers to focus on specialized partnerships that was not a move that was universally perceived to be beneficial to the company. It really was a change interest Egypt. Direction.

Robinhood has lured young traders

"And selling stocks on the smartphone. App Robin Hood has become incredibly popular this year especially since the covert pandemic started and there are a few possible reasons why I of everybody's home and has lots of spare time that's got to be part of it maybe. 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. It's a lot of traits. In the hood is also become kind of famous for the clever ways that it entices people to use. It's apt to and sell stocks. So Digital Confetti or some other animation might fall across the screen when you first deposit money into the APP, we are simple. Take away from that hard to get us in here. Yeah. 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.

Why Pros Can't Beat the Market, but You Can by Chris Reining

"Why pros can't beat the market, but you can buy Chris rining of Chris. rining. Dot Com. A small part of my investment portfolio is an index fund tracking the market, and apparently I'm not alone over the past few years. Trillions of dollars have flowed into index funds as people realize highly paid professional money managers seldom beat the market. Bill. Man after spending eight years running active funds explained why that's a difficult task. Quote Fund, managers are under pressure to be predictable by showing low tracking error, which essentially means funds have to try to beat their benchmarks while tracking their benchmarks closely. Does that remotely make sense? End Quote? To say that another way fund managers become closet indexes. For instance, if they say they're benchmark is the S. and P. Five hundred they need to assemble a portfolio of stocks that closely resembles the S. and P. Five hundred because if they're fund underperforms its benchmark investors pull their money out. And that's the game fund managers are playing to attract and keep the most money because fees are percentage based the fund with ten billion dollars under management rakes in more than the three billion dollar one. But. Here's what took me years to realize saying that professional money managers can't beat the market has. Nothing to do with what you can or can't do please listen to that again. Here's why small-time investors like you and me have an enormous advantage over any professional. One you're a speedboat there a battleship. You're investing small amounts of money, not many hundreds of millions or billions. What do you think happens when a fund manager finds an underpriced stock and starts buying millions worth it causes the price to go up and there goes the advantage. To No one's looking over your shoulder. Fund managers have bosses breathing down their neck making sure they're tracking their benchmarked prevent withdrawals. It's the old nobody ever got fired for investing in IBM, or now Apple Syndrome. It's very hard to get market beating results when you're forced to invest conventionally. Three you didn't study investing. The SMART, people with Mba's who study modern portfolio theory and understand those squiggly lines on technical charts have been conditioned to believe investing can be broken down into some science like engineering or physics. So neat and tidy. nope. It can't markets involve messy people. Anyone can pick stocks trying to beat the market that doesn't mean everyone should stocks take a certain set that outlined before in my blog and it helps to have help which is why I use Motley fool stock advisor. Speaking of them, there's no question there. Stock Picking Methods beats the market because they're picking better than average docs from their website as of today five return up sixty percent S. and P. Five, hundred up thirty seven, percent seventeen year return up three hundred, eighty, two percent S&P Five, hundred up ninety, one percent over the past five years they've eaten the market by twenty, three percent. And so if you're interested in picking stocks, it might be as simple as buying and holding their latest recommendations for years to come sure you'll get some picks wrong and that's okay. The idea is your winners will more than make up for the losers and I know because I've picked some duds but my returns still beat the market. This is similar to how Jeff bezos thanks. Quote we've made doozy's like the fire phone and many other things that just didn't work out. We don't have enough time to list all of our field experiments, but the big winners pay for thousands of field experiments and quote. anyways, one of the most phenomenal small-time investors I know is Saul. Rosenthal. He's been compounding money at thirty percent or so for thirty some years but also works harder at it than anyone. He currently owns nine stocks only his very best ideas and always thinks deeply about them trying to find his blind spots. You might think having your life savings in nine stocks is nuts but I've learned it's better to have a small portfolio where you know a lot about a few companies than some gigantic portfolio were you know little about lots? I've trimmed my portfolio to fifteen stocks and at index fund it feels good of course, running a concentrated portfolio like that takes more work when all your eggs are in one basket, you watch that basket. But if you find the work enjoyable like it's a game for you, the results can be life changing. Does all this make sense I bet you'll always hear things like if professional money managers can't beat the market with their huge budgets and computing resources then neither can you Again just because they can't beat the market has absolutely nothing to do with what you can or can't do value investor monae per Bri. said it best quote investing is a peculiar business. The larger one gets the worst one is likely to do. So this is a field where the individual investor has a huge leg up on the professionals and large investors and quote.

Can Your Brand Afford NOT To Have A Social Point Of View

Can Your Brand Afford NOT To Have A Social Point Of View

"Whether it's a movement like black lives matter all the metoo movement or Lgbtq issues or the good old stole war environment and sustainability. There's no shortage of social and political issues dominating both the mainstream media and the social media streams these days the question is as a brandon as a business. What are you GonNa, do you GonNa make a statement on it? You're going to state your position on these issues or I just kind of keep quiet. Well the study by Nielsen's a couple of years ago suggested that seventy three percent of millennials want to work for companies that have a strong social point of view. But more interesting than that I think is that eighty two percent of millennials expected the brands to make public statements and commitments to those social and political point of views. So if you have a customer base market base, which is millennial, which let's face it. Most of us do they expect you to not only have a point of view but to make public statements and commitments to it so you actually can't just keep quiet anymore. And I'm not sure what the right answer is to be perfectly honest. I. Think the same rules apply to personal brands as well, and you would think it's easier for personal brand to actually make those statements because it is you but still I think a lot of personal brands. Now particularly, as they influences, they want to also sort of sometimes sit on the fence. My personal opinion is I don't think you necessarily need to he my opinion on these issues. In a general sense, I support all forms of equality. But do you need my specific statement on black lives matter or is a general statement about me just supporting equality of everything? Is that enough. I think it's a little bit different maybe if your personal brand to a product or brand but not a lot. Can a public brand can a public product brand? Just, say that we support all forms of equality have to come out and say we support the metoo movement or we support black lives matter. I'm not sure what the issues I. I honestly don't know but I think what I do know is that if you're relying on a millennial market or a millennial customer base, then you need to think very seriously about not only having a social point of view that's clearly stated bought being prepared to make public statements about it and commitments to it.

Bed Bath and Beyond to close 200 stores over 2 years as sales fall almost 50% during pandemic

"First quarter sales for bed bath and beyond fell nearly fifty percent. On yesterday's show, we talked about the number of store closings so far in twenty twenty. We can add bed bath and beyond the list because they're going to be closing two hundred locations over the next few years and they should Brian. Yes they should. This was a pretty rough report. Although to be fair, it was over. March April and May, so it's kind of hard for a retailer to report good results during that period, but it's hard to find really any good news in this report, Chris, as you noted, sales fell forty nine percent to one point three billion. That's quite drop when you dig into that a little bit more, you see that store sales dropped seventy seven percent. On the plus side, digital sales actually grew eighty two percent, and this actually blew me away. Digital sales at this company represents two-thirds of sales this quarter. That's far harder than I. thought it was going to be Chris. Me as well and We've been saying this for months. With all kinds of retailers, you look at the results for the quarter. Not Surprising to see digital sales skyrocketing. To try and counterbalance the store closings. Unfortunately that's not the case here with bed, bath and beyond. You know when you talk about sort of. Where is the silver lining? If there is one? I think it's actually in the announcement of the store closings. Mark Trittin, who really made his bones at target as an executive vice president. Targets. Move into private label. Brands. Trittin was the guy behind that. So there was a lot of enthusiasm at the end of two thousand nineteen when he took over this company. And he made some pretty swift moves in the C. Suite like he basically. Cut Most of the executives. And, it's clear that you know for for whatever was happening with the company today in the stock today and it's down about twenty percent today. Trittin is a guy who has a clear vision. He knows what he wants to accomplish. He cleaned house at the end of twenty, nine, thousand, nine hundred and they've got. Nine hundred fifty bed bath and beyond location. They're going to be closing. Two hundred of them over the next two years. You know just on a percentage basis. That's you know we've seen. Retailers Nibble around the edges edges were store closings before, and so as someone who actually owns a few share, a bed bath, and beyond like that's the silver lining to me is that Trittin is doing with the store closings what he did with the executive ranks?

"eighty two percent" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader

"There was a full listen well most of the desert but as a character but a situation that they were one of the most fun game I. Leri so and allow myself to the phones or the motion snow with the the last thing will have as well as your big store the day he has been indefinitely suspended by the league so the rest of the year six games as an eagle about one point four million dollars is that enough should be more should go into next year anyway came BR few want to get into that others have been suspended and I have not seen anything on Mason road off although I did see a tweet that said that he is going to get some sort of punishment does not sure what the punishment is I understand that he was part of instigating that whole thing I don't know who started what but to it's kind of hard to tell who is pushing who whatever but I don't know I'm not sure that I would do that but okay eight we came we already did that conversation as well we are open until twelve fifteen at Mayo because gonna join us then Tom Bella cera is going to help us decide for all of what happened last night between the US dealers in the Browns at the end of that thing from NFL network NFL dot com at twelve forty five and a good friend Cynthia Freeman's gonna join is at one fifteen you know I was digging up some numbers on the receivers just because I know we're gonna have our on today and I want to ask about it you just give me a reference point of catch percentage a catch rate for receivers the leading receiver in the league for catch rate is Michael Thomas eighty three percent for receivers George kills catch rate is eighty one percent other words when they go to a guy that could be a drop it could be miss pass anything big George kills it eighty one percent years versus targets exactly so leader in the league is Michael Thomas at eighty three percent Tyler Lockett is second eighty two percent George Kittle is it eighty one percent leader for the receivers in this is pretty impressive he's dropped a few but to devote will catch you share he's at seventy percent which is a pretty good number the other guys this is where the issue comes in born is it sixty percent good ones at fifty eight percent Richey James is at fifty six percent Dante passes of forty six percent which is near the bottom of the league for those that qualify so those guys are all last sixty percent or less on targets that's not good well and there's there's many components to that yet you know the throw should the fall of gone there was there or not separation so you have to look like Greg Cosell said when I asked about Christian Kirk and I I was just making a general statement but yeah you don't it's like the warriors offense when they were good the guy who shoots the ball as a guy that's most open the guy that gets the ball is the guy that's most open and I think the forty Niners run the routes that way so that's also up you know to Jimmy and where is throwing the ball and don't throw the ball that Scott edge to the guy that's covered throw the got the ball to the guy that's on top but do they have the ability to one cover do they have the ability to make the tough catch I think the one thing is sure I look back on the game I can report it too bad drops that Kendrick born played really well early in the game caught that first third down I caught a touchdown he wired and out of the two point conversion so overall I give him a decent grade in the game marquise good what I know we got hurt with a forearm what do you to drop early in the game and the bottom line is because he's a high traffic everybody wants to talk and ask and write about Dante fetish and I I I think he has become unreliable to throw him the ball because she will not complete the tough catch I'm not even you know I I he won't even necessarily catch the easy one and he has amazing physical tools I mean his his father Gerry Pat is was one of the great flyball catchers ever seen any he was just you know effortless but Dante he has that those jeans on that scale but I don't think it's a lack of concentration with them I I think football's not for everybody and it's a vicious violent game and I think he's just he does not like you have sought the odd cut that he got when he did not possess the ball the way to the ground when McDougal had a I thought he caught that ball I I thought when I saw it was he caught the ball the way to the ground but when he went to the ground he lost possession of the ball obviously the one over the middle on the second down which basically cost you you would have had a tie had he caught that ball they would not have lost because the clock what a run I think it's safe to say if he catches that second ten there at the very least eight on one yeah I have routed one so that I mean so there's a point where you just can't from the ball you just can't you just not but they have I mean it's the the catch verses the target yes but there's so many components to that is Jimmy going in the right spot with the ball and look in the at the game back more closely there were several times Jimmy did not throw the ball where it was supposed to be thrown or should have been thrown but to his defense he was getting his **** beat the tackles played horribly horribly both of them like when she answered daily just poor games and I don't have Staley and just in school started to struggle yeah he's got a dealer Chandler Jones if you recall there was a safety in that game against them so you got to deal with that as well so I just a was a safety against him nose against Carolina but he gave that you gave up a safety against Carolina but I think you give up a sack as well to Chandler Johnson trailer Jones jumped on Jamie's back but so there's so many components to whether or not a guy called catches a football is that line blocking for the quarterback the quarterback for the ball the right spot that's why I I I I understand the numbers job but I think football is just too complicated of a sport to break down individual numbers on a play and I go to the pro football focus people they do amazing job and I think we're teams and sent the we've asked her about this before I think what they're really valuable to teams and I know James used them including I think the forty Niners USM but it's more like with Arizona's offense when they're on the left hand sh mark and they have this personal group on the field one of the most inclined to do that use data but when you're trying to grade a player I think they're player grades are just toddle they now unless they know the play call a blocking a sign medic I may be blocking down and so it's just it's it's hard to judge them and I think it's also hard to judge wide receivers just based on raw data the forty Niners don't throw the ball as much as other teams they run the ball so all their numbers are going to be down and then you know Dick in this particular game there are so many different elements to the pitch in the catch it's not just the picture the catcher it's L. everything so my my my Morris chestnut of the forty niner wide receiving corps is I I don't know if I would trust on tape that is anymore that's just the end of it I I just think there's a point where he's not making the contested cat she's not making the uncontested catch and I understand his ability and his is viewed as odd runner but he's just you know he's he's effective as a runner he's got the jeans obviously from his dad but the production is just not there and there's a point now and I you know a manual Sanders well I think he's got a chance to play in this game but I heard it was ripped cartilage fracture not rib fracture when Matt barrows join does say you know George played with this injury all last year George cattle you can take a shot and deal with that if it's ribs that may be different so he's a tough guy but the bottom line is you you know you have six wide receivers are up on game day Hey marquees good ones one of them and they're not you know Kim was mentioning yesterday you may see a flip in the roles yeah when Richey James junior and Dante palace you may have Dante pedis go back as a punt returner now if you don't trust him to catch the ball from scrimmage dear lord to catch the ball and punch so that's a huge flip it feel position cost your points but he's a great punt return from you dub nine touchdowns most ever college football I get it but I I I'm almost at the point where I I want to see more Richey James junior from scrimmage and I want to see less of Dante pedis I'd boards fine born just add a couple of bad breaks Devo is tough Dave dropped one but he has not run perfect routes she runs sloppy routes you might be a little bit Tim brown it is a sloppy route runner I think sometimes he runs a wrong routes but I I'd rather throw him the ball because that sucker's gonna fight for it there's no doubt and I think there's a point where you just don't trust the guy anymore right I just crew crying wolf and I keep thrown a tia and it's just not coming through so I think they're almost at that stage it on tape that is known it I I think you're right in look Kyle is come out and set it I think he's tried the tough love with them I think you tried to embrace some of these tried just about everything you could possibly do when you hit it right on the head Dante pedis is kind of a different kind of a guy but they so far they haven't gotten through to a man one of the reasons I'm gonna bring this following thing up and look this is this is not entirely fair absolutely not beauty is in the eye of the beholder but they traded up to get him in two thousand eighteen to forty four three picks later gonna see Christian Kerr come for the Arizona Cardinals inner and he's a nice player who look I'm not saying this because he had three touchdowns last week he did beat of that poster out last year when a dream Colbert took the bat route but he's a nice player James Washington we seen what he'd done he got taken at sixty DJ chart as a nice player sixty one Michael Gallup was a few pics after that there there were quality receivers in that draft and you chose this guy that's a high to that's a big time pick the you've got hit on now I do think that Devo is gonna be nice player who they take a look in the second round but for example as you just put it out Richey James is taken in the seventh round of the draft I think they should flip the positions and I agree with you I'm a little bit nervous about that is but they got to see what they can do and has had an NC double a record nine returns for touchdowns in Washington that's one of the reasons Kyle said when they drafted him why they draft him is because he had those skills will see if he can regain some confidence there because when Richey James is have the opportunities he's made bigger plays and more consistent plays then what Penn says I agree with you I don't trust them anymore and if I don't trust me you don't trust him disturbing rob Lowe trust them well I was trying I mean eight hours Kyle as Wes Welker and smiles Austin there's just a point where you don't put a chain on the field anymore and I I don't think they'll have a man active because you know if you get a big if you to switch roles Richie then you gonna need them all up but they have all six up on game day again on this Sunday I you know I don't know but I guess the bottom line is she's unreliable and they've date they have given I make that second chance was a big time play some talked about enough yes everyone with their you've got to catch it so the.

"The eighty two percent of workers have a deductible the plan which is an increase from sixty three percent just ten years ago yeah I remember the no deductible health insurance plan all those were nice. gosh those were nice so I don't have a deductible features kicks in right away. those are nice those are the two thousand four days. but over the last decade the vessels of rising of course deductibles are the insurance companies way out they'll give you insurance they'll do an AC eight you know approved plan. they'll have all the essential benefits. but if you want anything else covered you got to meet a twenty five hundred dollar deductible or ten thousand dollar deductible. so basically you don't have insurance unless you have a major issue. so this is for a single person the average deductible was sixteen hundred dollars compared to eight hundred dollars in two thousand nine. I remember the days of toward a fifty dollar deductible the survey also found the lower wage workers defined as those earning twenty five thousand let's see here face of the greatest challenges when it came to employer provided insurance among friends a covered benefits lower wage employers on average were required to contribute about forty percent towards premiums. they say because workers at lower which companies had an annual family contribution of seven thousand fewer employees took up employer health benefits yeah unfortunately that's what's happening employer sponsored coverage it's still so expensive. that the average employee office out. they're like don't be taking money out of my paycheck. I need that money for rent and food. hopefully many of them could go on Medicaid. and a lot of people do a lot of people can still be on Medicaid. but now what we're doing is we have a population more more more people need the government they need government insurance and this is why the Democrats are saying well then why don't we just do Medicare for all. or a public option. because that's where we're going it's just I'm frustrated because within half the goal there we really didn't. sorry my back hurts. they say many who work at low wage firms are small business likely find it too costly to cover the families. so what is the plan. what is the are you know what how are we going to fix this. I mean we all can bet on we're gonna need a doctor nurse practitioner PA at some point in our lives we also plan on that this could be something that happens to us whether be an ammonia heart disease cancer. the issue accident it's it's a negative thing to say but you know the idea of one good now I've never needed it before I'll be fine you never know. I've seen the healthiest people. yeah with cancer and I'm like what the hell people who did everything right to avoid sugar exercised eight well avoid radiation that doesn't matter. so you will need insurance you well and so. or you'll need to be able to have affordable healthcare. and you know I keep getting asked them why don't we just do Medicare for all wheel because Medicare. one has a lot of problems with it it is not ideal number two is it's a very very weak program as it is now. and you start to triple the number of people on it. quadruple. take a break the system. and then who's going to pay for. and my. action is Medicare is going to become something that is unrecognizable. maybe we'll also have the doctor was river Medicare's deductible still. there's a lot of out of pocket costs when you have Medicare and Medicare doesn't cover it you've got to pay right out the gate. so. dean well it's government insurance I won't have to pay premiums don't fall for that. if there's not enough money to keep it and remember once you make it happen there's no reversal there is no way to reverse the ACA. look out we thought we could. and we're never happened. so once you promise.

I surprised by the two thirds help being held by women number women go to school more often than men now but it's not like snot to these are actually has not two thirds. yeah what is the reason is for that I think it might I don't know my guess though I think they're still a trend for women to be picking lower due to be. going into lower paying jobs than men so maybe it's the rate of pay off of those loans it takes a longer time. I've got around the this is when they graduate. so yes so that's a that's a good question the ratio that you have is fifty six female fifty six percent female forty four doubt two thirds of outstanding education that is held by women that would that would actually back up my point okay as okay or if if that makes sense they're graduating at a higher rate but going to lower paying jobs they would have a tougher time paying off that that makes sense the good yeah you have a natural built in it's a fifty six percent of college students or women forty four percent are men and then that pay difference makes up the rest of that would make perfect sense actually little. well greens is testing drone delivery service with a company from alphabet called wing. so that I read this story and the first thing that came to mind was somebody at Walgreens screaming please somebody may be relevant again please anyone. what would you make this. I'm not sure I think it's been Walgreens attempting to be relevant here and really failing to do so I I think it's an interesting test for Google and for alphabet after students for alphabet not Google and testing out something for them I don't think it's going to do anything for Walgreens. one of the things that I find interesting what when you hear about like drone delivery from anything from like weather Taco Bell Walgreens or anything else. it will do this the trigger seem to be do you think that when you hear that that this is just on auto pilot. yes but drones are not automatically piloted they have to be controlled manually right now and I I have the same thing that you to talk to when I hear drone when I hear drone delivery I think which is going to fly on its own I just assumed it was gonna be auto pilot you're not allowed to you can't have auto pilot a drone really but they're very close with as as talking to a building inspector the other day who uses drugs pretty freaked yeah yeah you're saying that it's all GPS corn based so like when they're controlling these drones like yeah they have to be manned but that's only because of the law like they can put in a GPS cornet they can as I also out there will do it but you have to be monitoring interest so it sounds like the laws just need to catch up a little bit best case scenario for Walgreens right let's say this works perfectly which we know it will not work perfectly they'll be issues but if it works perfectly then Walgreens will have like three months were the only person delivering drones the last three months of higher sales and then everyone else will do it. does this seem like delivering prescriptions via dry out just like that what I was going to say is a no because that's their not do that they're gonna do like kids formula and snacks and everything get a aisles or not I mean they're not going to deliver Percocet V. via drone that has tried to fly he shot out of the sky. yeah I I doubt they would be sending prescriptions up in these drones now absolutely so you think this yet so this. our Medicaid yeah you get like a letter is gonna be fly by yeah it was actually like okay which I mean in all fairness yeah that would be very nice if I could get my I don't know Serra flew delivered to your parents within two hours that would be great but again Walgreens. is this really into anything for your business now you just have to do something to get in the news I still like the idea of crowded skies. I like it better than crowded roads I don't I don't have to go on the roads I have to look at the sky you do have to go on the road we're talking about what I can choose not to at any given point you have work if I'm in my backyard I just have drones flying by. get out your backyard then. yes my back yard exactly. get off my lawn I have guards parent company Darden restaurants they reported earnings after the bell and the stock was down about three percent immediately after Mike was a moving right now stand only about half percent right now so is it just yeah I was I know you know it sorry it was it was down big in Thursday's trading session yeah about three percent yesterday and this will have today yeah Darden by the way in addition to all guards the biggest. branch okay about about half of the total sale they have a yard house right yeah they got yard house seasons fifty two Bahama breeze capital grille Eddie vis prime seafood cheddars scratch kitchen all garden longhorn steakhouse yeah I mean the two that really just. bad fortune is nothing Darden can do about the two that I really wouldn't want to visit would be longhorn and olive garden yeah was that would be open to yep yeah I mean your house I think puts a really good product on the table I think capital grille does a really nice job stick even have been Bahama breeze I haven't seen any I haven't either well that any vis prime seafood I don't know any V. is. Eddie Van Halen that's him. okay yeah I know is that the same as what about any better Eddie Vedder none that's another possibility so what what all of got I mean again it all comes down to all of garden for Darden restaurants and they saw same store sales growth but that was entirely because of higher prices and higher basin menu items for the people coming in the same store sales were actually down traffic was down a centrist ales were up traffic was down so. I am I'm not sure what to make of that that less people are going out to the people that are going on are spending more all of garden would you say that's primarily a dinner restaurant. yeah definitely does not being impacted by like a Pinera or chipotle which been haven't you know really hot streak. so in any case and as many people going to all of card for you take a break and we're gonna be talking about inheritance is as well as American Airlines why they.

"Me so this is a new way of evaluating endangered species different from what we already have in place right right so historically the process of adding animals into the endangered species protection act list has been really all about scientific evidence you know what data suggests that the species is in danger how endangered is it how important is it to the functioning of the ecosystem that kind of thing but now under these new rules the regulators are also be allowed to consider cold hard cash like the money that a timber company might not make it they can't cut trees and a certain patch of forest and these regulations they also now change the time lines so that the risks have to be in need quote unquote foreseeable future which is this kind of bag designation that could really be used to prevent protection from longer term risks so I imagine that scientists are not very happy about no as some of the scientists have said that under these new timelines for instance it would be almost impossible to designate the polar bears endangered because the sea ice loss in the arctic is a longer term problem than a short term one details details let's move on to the next one the first human crisper clinical trials are starting in the west tell us about that yeah so this week scientists announced the beginning of these first official clinical trials they're gonna be using crisper to treat blood disease cancer and inherited blindness and you probably are remembering that last year there was a Chinese scientist who announced that he'd edited the genes of embryos using crisper technology these trials are different than that for one thing they're being done in adults and children not embryos so these changes that are being made aren't things that could be inherited or passed on to future generations and of course there's also the whole like legitimacy aspect of this is having ethics oversight and transparency it's not secret under the table experiments but we still don't know how well this is going to work science news is Tina husband say had a really good article where she pointed out that you know other kinds of promising genetic therapy's haven't turned out to be useful in practices they were in theory you know people have died during gene therapy trials and in one case treatment seem to help when people see better but then the effects didn't last so this is gonna be targeted at Perth from from blindness one of the things can be targeted as blindness and also blood disease and cancer any concerns about that there may be off target you know the the express had problems with that yeah that is definitely a concern and it's something where there's a lot of experimentation you know we have a lot of these things that work pretty well in theory work pretty well in mice and then you get into humans and it's something else entirely but let's move on to Columbia this is a this is a story we've been talking about for years it seems to be finally happening that Columbia as a national state of national emergency about bananas right so the past is prologue in the food industry back in nineteen fifties we'd lost nearly the entire banana industry when a fungus came through and killed off old plantations it completely shifted the way we eat bananas we use a different variety now than your grandparents did and it seems like the same thing is happening there is this fungus called tropical race for that his killed trees all over Asia and Africa and it was first reported in Latin America in Colombia in June and now those infections have been confirmed and if you like bananas this should be a pretty scary thing there is no known resistant variety to replace the current banana that we use and this tropical race for fungus it can live in soil for decades so once a plantation is infested it's pretty much done for this we all use one banana right just about everybody seats this yeah the same banana this is this is a function of mono culture another have started to be different other varieties of bananas that turned up in stores in recent years but predominantly we are using one variety of banana that is growing on hundreds of thousands of acres of land and that makes it kind of an easy target for and for illness and there's no way to really stop the fungus no there's not it spreads incredibly easily this is kind of one of those things where even walking and an infected plantation and then going to a different plantation could spread at the Cavendish banana may be soon gun well I am me will get some of those little bananas I like the little yeah this can be very tasty and bill heats the whole than anything okay I'm moving on is that right there was an article from life science that said the communities with the oldest people in the world like Sardinia in Italy and okay now might not actually be as old as we think they are what's going on there so I'm sure you've heard about the blue zones into these places where lots of exceptionally old people live and there's been all of the studies about what are they eating how are they living how can we replicate what they do and there's this recent study that came out that was finding that these blues owns these places not only have some of the oldest people in the world they also have lower than average life expectancy is for everybody else so you have this combination of a few extremely old people and a lot of people who aren't living as long as other places that don't have the extremely old people and that certain string to make some researchers sort of wonder what's going on and one of the theories is that this could be initial faulty recordkeeping or even outright fraud so the examples of the sort of bringing up around this are that you know in the United States we used to have a ton of super centenarians like these people lived past a hundred but as we got better record keeping state by state the number of super centurions dropped dramatically in soho in each state the number of people over the age of a hundred and ten dropped by sixty nine to eighty two percent when birth records started being kept better for those states and that could be part of what's going on because when you're talking about super centurions right now you're still talking about people born before modern record keeping there's also transcription errors that could be happening there's also front could be happening so earlier this year for instance there was an investigation that looked into the story of John comment who was supposedly a hundred and twenty two when she died in France and has kind of long held this record as the oldest living human but this new research suggests that she might have actually been the daughter of the real gem come that who took over her mother's identity to get a pension so there are lots of reasons why they might be reporting people as older than they actually are and so a lot of this research into blue zones may or may not actually be all that useful one as I say details details thank you thank you Maggie curve Baker is senior science reporter at five thirty eight now it's time to play good thing bad thing because

"Supremacy the sinister ideologies must be defeated Hey it has no place in American hatred warps the mind ravages the heart end of ours the soul trump called Saturday's attack in a possible domestic terrorism it might well be trump's strongest condemnation of racist violence today but it follows several years of this sort of thing the US has become a dumping ground bringing drugs they're bringing crime they're rapists you also had people that were very fine people on both sides this interaction third reason trump rally directed at congresswoman Ilan Omar it's a kind of rhetoric from the president that many see empowering a white nationalist friends in this country will avoid quoting the shooters hateful manifesto but it does reflect a world view shared by other young white supremacist extremists from Norway to New Zealand they believe their national identity is under threat from changing demographics that's how Monica Duffy tosses it she's a professor at Tufts University and a leading expert on the roots of civil conflict and civil war let me start Monica with the question you asked in an article early this year what happens when a country's core national identity no longer matches its demographic reality well what it does is it leased to quite a bit of anxiety and trepidation among those some segment of those who were formerly in the majority they feel as if they're gonna lose political and or economic power and so they sort of you know react to what they see is you know what they feel as if dramatic changes within their country and what they think should be the make up of that country they have an ideal in their head what they think the country is supposed to look like in the case the United States is largely white Christian and I would go so far as is a Protestant Christian all in and also with males in charge and so we've seen a lot of dramatic changes in the country and only now are we seeing it reflected much more publicly in the open and I would say politically as well so it you would argue that white Christian as America's core national identity I mean what what about nation of value I wouldn't make that argument what I would say is there some segments of the population that believes that that is what the core of the United States narrative its history is and has been forgetting that of course the United States has largely been a melting pot since its inception since the founding of the country so you also can put this in context because you studied over hundred civil conflicts around the globe what is the worst example of this pattern that the worst example is probably former Yugoslavia in the early nineties where you store shift particularly in Kosovo that led to Europe with in Kosovo feeling as if the course of our Albanians had taken over there what they saw as their homeland territory and leading to you know first of all of the civil war and then of course to the break up of former Yugoslavia but we also so similar dynamics in the Soviet Union I would go so far as to say you can tell a pretty basic demographic historical narrative story for the break of the Soviet Union which is that the Slavic population particularly the Russian Slavic population was becoming a minority and so there was a sense that okay we can let the non slow parts of the country go but we want to hang on to the score and so today now Russians upwards of eighty two percent ethnically Russian but in the late nineteen seventies it was going to be a minority in other parts of the union were growing having higher birthrates another paramedic kicking is Lebanon and the break up of Lebanon where you had different parts of the population sort of cooking the books actually not giving proper senses accounts in order to maintain control over the political system and if you control the political system to a large extent you can control a lot of the economics of markets as well so in the case of Russia you mention that today it's eighty two percent ethnic Russian what what does that tell us about about this kind of push back what it tells you is is that if it's allowed to sort of faster that it can lead to you know large scale violence it can it doesn't have to or it can lead to you know civil war and so what I've been starting and finishing up a book on this is is looking at these sorts of dynamics about how in the political arena once this becomes public and gets vocalize like this one of the dampers order the institutional mechanisms resources washing and I'm a bit nervous right now in the United States because at the highest levels you are seeing this sort of antipathy this sentiment this a hostile sentiment against non whites in the country and and you know they're being label criminals and and you're using language about them being insects and invading the country and to me this is the beginning of you know what I have seen in other cases where you may end up having pushed back right by those populations if they're strong enough and you can lead to large scale violence and already what you could see this is it's a slow moving revolution that's happening and the question is is it going to be violent or not are you going to see the majority of whites than the majority of the country by the way a you know let's not even talk about race that actually supports immigration I can actually get their voice heard and get it put into the political arena that we have some immigration reform so that we can move away from these levels of hostility but the concern is as we know I I know that president trump today that was his largest denunciation of weight nativism and and and this sort of extremist rhetoric in action but it I don't think it's too late to dampen it but we we we need this to be the story from now on in order to dampen the level of violence because you know now or tens of not hundreds of people dying as a result of these kinds of sentiments Monica Duffy toft professor of international politics at Tufts University thanks for being with us today you very much.

"But for me if you're going to have the game as wide open as nails and you're gonna put Michael Jordan with no handshake. He'd average forty five. You put Kobe in today's game. Like right now he'd averaged forty two. Okay. So Jane hard, he is in that discussion. And if there are more against it. This is not GM speak. This is not coach speak. He's that good. That was well said, and I agree with that. He that he's that good. But like I said skip his visas up-to-date he'd be traveling. But they don't call it and beginning of. Can you imagine? If they call fouls for Michael Jordan like they did James hard. He was literature twenty three dollars a night. It just wouldn't be exactly. So he I think might water eighty eighty two percent a career shooter. He would shoot twenty free throws tonight. Sign for Kobe. But he is in the discussion on the on the on what he's been able to do. When watching win six man of the year in an okay, see, a pretty it's getting nobody thought this James harden now, I did not see the I did not think he would ever be this. And now, he's even gone up a level from Winnie won the MVP, and you can make the case he could have won to MVP, but not this not this. So I will agree with your conclusion. As of last night. I am I'm ready to put him in the conversation. And that's a lot for me because I didn't use to go that far. I will also say this for this stretch December into January. These eleven games are twelve if you want to go back and twelve he shooting forty two percent from three. Well, if he could sustain that at some point you'd have to say, yeah, you. He might average forty four. He he would because that's unstoppable. Yes. Because as great as Steph was through his to run there were nights when I thought Steph was the greatest offensive ever seen because it's just if you're gonna make forty foot three point shots, you're gonna shoot forty seven percent, right. Then nobody can stop that. But James is a little taller than staff. He's six five and he has a little better. What I call slither through traffic in the lane. I don't know. How does it? But he just has that he makes himself small so now, and then he can go left hand or right hand at the basket. And he's not a dunk Rica just lay it up off the glass, and the whistle is going to blow and he's going to go the free throw line, and he's going to make most of those for. Yes. Because through these eleven games he's making eighty eight percent. Well, if he shoots a whole bunch of free throws twenty seven hundred night. Okay. I got you. But the reason I can't go Jordan is as you know, not even want to start into this. Get Michael Jordan was a cold blooded killer of a score and win the stakes were the highest. He's really. Going to squire and too often. I've seen James have no playoff backbone. Right. You can't trust him that grows out game two years ago at Houston versus my Spurs by hunt. Yeah, he got two for eleven to for nine from three and they got wiped out. And there was no number two or Tony Parker on the Spurs at night. Well, and then how about last year game six and seven against Golden State. They had them and James was he had fourteen turnovers. Those two games combined. He was a minus thirty two shots six for twenty five from three in those two games. Well, you got Golden State on the ropes, and you can't close that deal. And the thing is Jordan and Kobe you think I think they would have been scores than anybody system. Yeah. I don't know how good James harden. You'd be in the basketball without Dan. Tony b see. I'll be open it up and everybody can get point. I hear you once upon a time harden, Westbrook and Durant were all in the same..
