Sam Darnold's Time Is Coming
"I'm gonna start with arguably my most controversial take of the day sam darnold. What's the heartache. And if he is he gonna go sir. Not darnold in slinging. Sam darnold three year career. He's never finished inside of the top. Twenty five at the quarterback position. He's also never thrown for over thirty one hundred yards or twenty touchdowns in a year his career completion percentage sits at fifty nine percent in addition if we look at last year specifically. It's his worst year of his career. Twenty two hundred yards through the air nine touchdowns and eleven interceptions in twelve games. If your take is that sam darnold is bad like you. Just prove that. He's bad like. I don't know where you're going with this but darnold is bad. You're trying to say is gonna finish outside of qb. Thirty two sam darnold careers. Been absolutely terrible. Nobody is going to argue that including myself. It would be pretty easy for somebody to up his career as of bust in move on and in fact. Almost everybody is already done that rightfully so sam. I am one of the few people that still truly believes in you. I'm here to tell you why showtime darnold is going to finish the season as a top twelve quarterback showtime where nicknames coming from you top twelve top twelve quarterback darnold the prospect in darnold product have been polar opposite so far. But let's remember that he was a number three overall pick in the two thousand eighteen draft. He went ahead of josh allen and lamar jackson. The reason he was drafted ahead of them is because scouts were drooling over his size his arm strength and his playmaking ability on the day of the two thousand eighteen draft dane brugge a well-known senior analyst for nfl draft scout listed darnold as the clear number one quarterback in the draft. Obviously that hasn't been the case but the point that i'm trying to make is a talent was there and i know space jam to just came out and unless the monster stolas talents. I'm confident in saying that. Those talents are still in that

Q1 Tesla Earnings Report and Shareholder Letter Analysis
"Our here and today we're going to go through with tesco's earnings report. They just reported earnings. They did deliver a beat reading through all the numbers here and then a couple of takeaways from the call and then we'll also after this livestream head into the earnings call and will livestream that as well. I'll take notes so make sure to check that out the link for that will be in the show notes but let's get into the numbers here so starting off with top line here we can see tussles. Total sales came in at just over ten point. Three billion ten point three eight nine billion as a little bit ahead of analysts consensus a little bit ahead of my numbers but basically in the right ballpark. We did see kind of a mixed. Though in between the categories automotive sales came in about where we expected but a lot of that was driven by regulatory credits. So tesla actually new record for regulatory credit sales. Quarter almost half. A billion dollars of fifty. Four percent more than expected for six percent higher than last year Fifty nine percent higher than what i had expected with three hundred twenty five million so that means that my average selling prices my forecast there were a little bit high. And tesla made up the difference there with regulatory credit sales energy sales so just about half a billion dollars there in revenue little bit below where the street had forecasted twelve percent below Thirty percent below where i had forecasted but still quite a bit of an improvement over year over year up seventy percent so if we look down here we can see that the reason i'm zoom in a little bit here. The reason that that happened was because tess only Four hundred and forty five megawatt hours of energy storage versus We look at you for almost three times more than three times that amount. So tesla definitely saw drop there in terms of energy storage That is leading to that lower revenue in energy sales. They also lost quite a bit of money on energy. You can see negative twenty percent gross margin there. That's definitely the lowest that we've ever seen from tesla and continues the down trend that we've been seeing for the last four quarters so not a great sign there but as we've seen tesla did raise the price on solar roof there now knowing solar with power wall. So they're doing a lot of things here to improve their profitability here. But we just haven't seen that come to fruition quite yet so hopefully over the next couple of quarters. Tessa can get that figured out. Because i was about one hundred million dollar drag on prophet which is pretty significant when we look at tesla's overall profitability
Deutsche Bank Is Still Hot for Apple Shares
"Deutsche. Bank is still hot for apple. Shares tip ranks has deutsche bank analyst sydney ho issuing a note offering iphone numbers about which i do not care. Okay that's not true. The numbers are interesting and notable. Though the part i find most interesting is his news around apple retail about half of apple store. Customers have come back like physically. According to mr ho wall store traffic bottomed out. In the spring of twenty twenty it has improved sense and is now at about forty percent of fifty percent of the volume seen pre pandemic. It's like the reverse of that. Nature is healing thing as for iphone. Those numbers are relatively consistent. In fact those are his words tip. Rank says since the pandemic's onset the iphone share of the us installed base and length of smartphone ownership has remained in hose words relatively consistent when looking to make a smartphone purchase. The beat goes on to say fifty seven percent of iphone users and tend to get the latest model just below the fifty nine percent. Who plan to do so. In december of twenty nineteen storage wise lesser inclined to get five hundred twelve gigabyte models the highest amount of bailable although sixty four gigabytes appears to be insufficient to most since december twenty nineteen consumers. Buying sixty four gigabyte models have dropped from percent to eight percent while in the same period those purchasing one hundred twenty eight gigabyte models grew from twelve percent to twenty four percent. Sounds like a better asap to me as for the five g super cycle. Ho doesn't seem to think it's here yet. Quoting his note. The launch of five g smartphones does not seem to have significantly change the length of smartphone ownership both iphone and other although we do expect a refresh cycle to accelerate when five g. infrastructure is more built out. Deutsche bank has by reading on apple shares. the firm's price target on the shares is one hundred sixty dollars

Or is it crypto. Well it's worth sixty nine million. Whatever it is it is the. He's the third largest price paid for living artists. People is up there now with jeff collins and david. Hockney sixty nine nine to be fair. Nine point three million dollars went to christie's which immediately i'm sure turned the theory him into american cold hard cash sixty million of it was a bid by an anonymous bidder using a pseudonym although we think we now know who it is and i'll explain that in just a second sixty million dollars what did you get for the sixty million. Did you get something you can hang on your wall. No did you get did you get. What did you get you got. You didn't even get the j. peg. You can have the j. peggy at address which would give you this. J peg which by the way consists of five thousand images that people has taken he. Does it daily art image.

You can print it. Anybody can print up but you own it only you can own it. And that's a. That's a affirmed on the blockchain. Sixty million dollars. Now the guy who bought it uses the name medic cova. But amy caster who i. I don't know from adam but wrote in the blog and i convinced me. That in fact is a crypto entrepreneurs. Been on the scene. For about seven years named vig. Nash some dorasan and furthermore amy caster kind of explained for the first time to me. What's really going on here.

Bits fractional portions of the people artwork to other people in other words. Step three prophet fifty nine. He owns fifty nine percent of be dot twenty. Motta's who else owns it. Be people owns a two percent stake so in effect people bought his own painting or part of his own painting. I'm not that there's any conflict of interest there or is there. But really i think if there is if in your mind there is some question and i'll ask you guys now to comment but if they're in your mind some question about what the hell is. How could how could jay peg be worth sixty nine point three million dollars. And why would somebody a medico van. Spend that kind of money on jay peg. It now becomes clear. He's gonna make money on it
State Trends In Employer Premiums And Deductibles
"Recently. The commonwealth fund examined the extent to which people with moderate incomes in employer health plans face high premium and deductible costs relative to their income to discuss the results of the study and the implications for policy holders going forward. I'm joined by sarah collins vice president of healthcare coverage and access at the commonwealth fund. Sarah welcome to the show. Thank you so much. Mike so sarah watches. Start out by telling us why you initiated this study and what you're looking for well employer health coverage is really the backbone of the us health insurance system more than half the population of the united states about one hundred sixty million people get their coverage through an employer so the purpose of this study was to look at trends over the last decade and the amount that workers and their families are paying for their employer health insurance and the size of their deductibles in all fifty states and the district of columbia and we compare these worker cost to median income in each state in order to get a sense of the economic burden of these costs on middle income families. And how did you go about conducting the research. We've been conducting the study nearly every year since twenty ten Using the latest data From what's known as the insurance components. Federal medical medical expenditure panel survey This survey is the most comprehensive national survey of use employer. health plans In twenty nineteen Which is the latest year of data. That's available This survey interviewed more than forty thousand business. Establishments With an overall response rate of fifty nine percent we computed from the survey reported statewide average premiums so we take the premiums reported by business establishments and average them across the state and we do the same deductibles and then we compared those averages to the median income in each state so this provides a rough measure of the affordability protectiveness of employer coverage and allows us to track changes over time. And what did you find after you conducted this study. We found that premium contributions and deductibles in employer plans took up a growing share of workers incomes over the past decade those costs together so premium contributions and deductibles accounted for eleven point five percent of meeting median household income and twenty nineteen. This is up from about nine point one percent a decade earlier the this cost burden in employer. Health plans has increased over the past decade because cumulative growth in median income has been slower growth in premium contributions deductibles. We also find that these contributions premium contributions deductibles as well as needing income vary considerably across the country the total cost of premiums and deductibles across single and family policies ranged from a low of about fifty. Five hundred dollars in hawaii. Too high of more than eighty five hundred dollars in nine states. Meet an income ranged from a low of about forty nine thousand and mississippi in mexico too highs around ninety thousand or more in massachusetts minnesota new hampshire new jersey what workers pay towards their premiums and deductibles comprised about ten percent or more of median income in thirty seven states in two thousand ten and twenty nineteen. This is up from about ten states Twenty ten in nine states workers combined costs were fourteen percent or more of meeting income workers in new mexico and louisiana face the highest potential cost relative to their income more than seventeen percent and we actually also find that people living in states that have lower meeting incomes like new mexico are doubly burdened on average workers in states where the median income is lower than the national median income face higher premiums and deductibles compared to people in states with higher median incomes. Also find that. Many people employer plans across. The country are insured Because their deductibles are high. Relative to their incomes tacoma fund has found that insured people who have high out of pocket costs and deductibles relative to their income are more likely to face problems accessing care or paying medical bills Than people who are not under insured. We've we've defined someone with insurance as under insert at their health plans. Deductibles deductible equals about five percent or more of income or if they're out of pocket costs reached similar thresholds in this study across the country. Many people employer plans are underinsured by this measure average deductibles relative median income or five percent or more in twenty states and ranged as high as seven percent in mexico.
Most Americans want to break up Big Tech
"Americans may be more divided by politics than ever. It feels that way but it also turns out there's one thing that most republicans and democrats can actually agree on and that is breaking up big tech. That's according to a new poll from vox and data progress. Vox pulled over a thousand voters this january for their thoughts on the big tech companies and recode. Ronnie mullah is you're talking about it. Hey ronnie hey tiny so. Give me the quick skinny on this poll. What did we ask and we find. We asked a lot of questions about people's opinions about big tech companies And turns out most americans tech companies the amount of power they have in the economy is a problem and also think that it would be a good idea to break up these tech companies. You know have facebook spinoff. What's apper or instagram. Make amazon not able to be both a marketplace and a seller on that marketplace. Okay so there are two questions question. One is is big tech too powerful or is it a problem for us economy. Is it a problem. And we've got Fifty nine percent of democrats seventy percent. Republicans think yet and then on the second question about whether we should break up big tax or the solution. We've got fifty five percent. Democrats saying that sixty one percent republicans saying so right and this is just so rare. This day and age to have bipartisan consensus on anything. Yeah it's interesting in this poll. That republicans are more anti-big tack than democrats on both questions. They are Both republicans and democrats are anti-big tech but for kind of different and almost opposing reasons. It has to do with their opinions of about speech. Democrats seem to think that these platforms aren't doing enough and then republicans are thinking that there's too much censorship on these platforms Okay so different reasons. Same solution. Yeah so this is starting to not just be a theoretical construct right. We have google and facebook being sued by the states or the ftc or the justice department. Nothing exist in a vacuum right. There are public opinion pressures. I wonder what this polling means four policy outcomes. I mean not. It's not as if the justice department. The ftc in the states are going to do something just because people wanted but you get more public officials that are elected based on advocating for this type of stuff There is a way in which the politics of this can affect policy outcomes. No right. i think it's just politically popular and this poll shows it. Surani you as a couple other questions to Talk to me about the question. You guys about banning trump on twitter and what democrats and republicans about them. So is one where we're back to normal and democrats and republicans had completely different responses republicans. Think it was a terrible idea that twitter band trump and democrats thought was good idea And obviously That's more normal Super fascinating poll has a lot of implications. This question is not pulled that much right. I mean. I haven't seen anything like this before we did a couple years ago and This is already once lawmakers. Were like looking into these antitrust actions. It's interesting there hasn't been antitrust action against the tech company for you know twenty years since microsoft so this hasn't really been on our minds now. There's five different antitrust actions against facebook and google alone so it's definitely on the public consciousness.
Still No Improvement for Patriots Against Impressive Bills
"What. I think of that game question. I just got done to tell you the truth and let you guys now. I only got through the defensive film. Before i did mass these night games like brutal. I'm getting too old for this stuff. It's it's tough for me to recover. So i just got done watching the offensive film pretty much. It pretty much hold true true. I just thought they got beaten all three phases of the game which highly unusual for team especially in a division. But i think. I think that's where the two teams are. I mean you look at the bills of the the the current the present and the future of the division right now and the patriots. Just aren't and i think i think the thing that look. I understand where the they are offensively. And they didn't quarterback play out of either the guys they ran the ball. Okay the offensive line play was just okay It wasn't as good as i thought upon closer inspection You know this is a team that offensively has a very small path to victory and they basically have to execute well and they have to make the most of all their opportunities and they just haven't been able to do that. Second half of the season including the opening possession when bird drops pass including a. I mean this is just where cam newton is i mean. Even that pass was late. The the sony did a great job of running the ball out and running the play fake. Because most of the time you get running backs who will pull up short or hurry up and they don't sucker in the defense. He suckered in the defense made a good run over to the right side. Threw it back to camp perfect. Then what does cam to he starts running. And then he pulls up and then he throws it was still a good throw. It was right there. Birsh caught it. But that's just like a little tiny thing where it's just those type of things just have built up in this offense where it just the execution level just there and then you look at the bills and you know look. Josh allen has improved a lot he has. I think some of it. You know tom. I don't know how you are but you know you. And i are sort of the same age. We're both were were old school. Fans were old school sort of sports guys. Where you know. My dad told me like if something's too good to be true. It usually is and for a guy like josh allen to go from fifty nine percent completion percentage to like sign percent in one year. That's just it's it's unheard of. It's unheard of what he's doing into me. Then i have in look. It might be true. He might be the exception to the rule that he has improved that much. And he's going to be a hall of fame quarterback. I mean that's very possible. I don't rule that out anymore because of what he's shown this year but to me. It's the combination of brian. Daboll step want digs all those weapons. You just look at the bills and everything they do on. Offense is easy for the patriots. Everything they do is hard. And now i think the most distressing thing in this game minutes been building for weeks. Is that the defense just is not. It's just not even close to being there the front seven. Just not good enough. You know chase winovich was a guy who we thought was he was going to need to start and be effective especially once a high tower was coming back and he's still just a sub package guy and in that just goes on and on for different guys who out there in a playing linebacker for the first time. He made a lot of bear. Stugotz made a lot of errors. He can't cover. He doesn't know how to play in space. He's good going forward. But that's about it like it's just you know they just. There's so many things wrong with this team right now and you need to look at the bills and so many things are right with that team. You're just like you know. I bet tom you're watching that game. And you probably got really depressed watching the building and the patriots. And i understand. It's hard not to feel that
What you need to know: Detroit Lions vs Houston Texans on Thanksgiving Day
"Let's go into tomorrow's games. The first game is the houston texans at the detroit lions detroit. Lions are plus three Let me check the money real quick here. The fifty nine percent of the bets are on the texans and percent of the money is on the texans. The line just got shut out. Texans had a big win against patriots. started you michael. What do you think well. I think i got the injury report for houston for the for the alliance because they weren't the same team. My mouth stafford was healthy in that game. I'm not saying there are good tv. You know there are three and three the last six games but i think that they weren't healthy. They didn't have golladay staffer. It wasn't healthy swift. Didn't play if those guys are playing and healthy. You know that you've gotta take that into consideration especially against a bat houston defense which you play run defense really well as we gave up a tiny arts but they were able to shut down the patriots from running the football. And you know and you look at it they. They've allowed one hundred thirty two points to houston in the last five games and only have created three turnovers houston doesn't create turnovers and allow points and mvp and the shawn watson is having an mvp type season. He's averaging over eight point five yards per attempt. He's only had one one point five interceptions. I mean percentage wise. I think he's been really good. The game doesn't set up good for detroit because houston's too fast on offense detroit too slow on defense the concern you have if you wanna play this game is is what good can use to do against the the lions defensively because if there if the lions aren't healthy they can play well so i think that's the concern is where is the lions helped the factor in this way is i think from talking to people around the league you know. I think it would have been other week. Besides thanksgiving patricia lost his job on after the after the carolina he may lose after this game. If they don't win. I mean i think that's how that's how tight it is. I'm not saying he's fired on friday. I'm not sick. Predicted sanders a lot of conversation about that. Yeah i mean that is obviously worried for the lines is as are they going to show up and play Away from texas. I saw cooks out Potentially i believe i still. Kenny stills has also out galled as probably going to be out for The lines it seems like jonah swift is going to be back who he played very very well the weekend before and the Houston texans are number thirty. Two in the league versus rush. That is my only reservation. Though for taking the texans talked about earlier like. Jj watt probably gonna wanna show up to sean lock. Primetime time game might be the last one you know. We'll fuller's ver- contract after the season potentially looking at shop and everybody's watching you know. Yep but look they had a big lead on you know a detroit out a big lead on on washington they left. Detroit is slow there to the worst two-minute defense at all football. According to the kid that they drafted the third overall pick played only twenty four plays last week. Why i don't know i think. The biggest indictment of matt patricia. Coaching staff is when adrian peterson comes out and says i don't know why he didn't meet three weeks ago. That kids me

How a 22 Year-Old Company Pivoted During COVID
"Meredith. Welcome to the show. Great lakes wrap very. So how are you doing during covid six months and i can't believe we're six months in. I was saying just six months ago. Oh probably over next month right right. Now we're doing good have left the house really We did mu so. That was a little bit stressful. But all good so tell us about. The salesforce is small and medium business trends report. Why do you do this. And what can we learn from it. Sure we'll be. We just have published our fourth edition of the smb transport where we surveyed twenty three hundred global smb leaders and we actually got a really unique experience this time around because we published one back in march and the pandemic hat. And we're like we got we got. We gotta redo this. We want to get before and after so we just did another survey in august so we have a really interesting perspective of kind of before. And after i wouldn't say after i say now we're not quite after yet right. I guess that's wishful thinking right But during i think you know we're we didn't publish it on salesforce dot com slash. Fm be trends but he wants to see the details but you touches on things like how the pandemic racial injustice have affected motivation. What challenges and gold are happening with. Smb leaders how demographics shape the entrepreneurial experience in the outlook You know the role of digital transformation and driving resiliency in small businesses and really how small business leaders are planning to recover and to grow from that. They're really seven insights that stood out to me the first and not surprising we asked what are the top areas of focus during co bit in back in august sixty. Four percent of our smb leaders said safety and sanitation policies. Like i'm thankful for that to too as consumer next was fifty. Nine percent of leader said local public health mandates contact with service a out of physical space. That's top of mind You know second because we have the before an effort after that. Continue to be challenges. That didn't really change Keeping up with demand Forty seven percent ranked it very high in march forty six said the same in in august providing quality products still challenge on still one of their top challenges. Smb leaders but what was new and what really became more difficult for these three things which was bringing innovative products to market. You see a lot of companies have done so much to the word pivot now is being overused. But you see you know that the stock company now making ppe Howard folks getting innovative in delivering services to homes right versus navy in person You've seen i've seen in san francisco restaurants pairing up with the wine shop and delivering date. Night meals But really getting creative on the market but another area that was personalized customer engagement. I think it's become more important To engage with your customers and that's it became more difficult. You know something. Many small business owners had it really thought about the personalization and then third was the connected experienced How do i stay connected during these times. The thirteen that came out to me. Was you know we we ask. Vod survey respondents. Are you a growing business or you. Can you know Growing meaning our or your revenues growing Those are are growing. Were actually much more likely to offer flexibility to things like payment policies return policy maybe giving extended payment terms instead of paying. You know in thirty days you can pay forty five days but this really highlighted the importance of prioritizing developing a relationship versus a one time transaction about all the time and i think even more so in the last six months has been loyalty right. Returning customers You know the more flexible you are with these customers. Warned loyalty recreate. You create an honest. That's your recurring revenue. Are you wanna find your recurring revenue. The fourth thing. That really came out before you go on. I just want to discuss a couple of elements. Because i don't wanna lose them very important threads. You talked about the personalization of the customer gauge being so important. And we've seen that for a long time. Ever since burger king said you know you can have it your way people want a personalized one on one experience but it really is becoming much more difficult because on one hand you have the personalized experience on the other hand. You have contactless delivery right. So what do you think. Some of the best ways are for small business owners to actually keep that personalized connection with their customers at time. When they're not supposed to be contact lists right. You know i get about knowing who your customer is. And this is where i think. Technology actually can play a huge part. It's a huge advantage to small businesses. There's technology out there. Of course we've got some. But i think there's lots of great companies it's not affordable and it's easy to use but a great crm tool which is customer relationship and a lot of opposites. Don't go searching for a crm. They're like how do i talk to my customers. How do i connect. This is about putting the customer in the center of everything you do. And you want to get off spreadsheet or off the piece of paper and you know you as the owner of the business may know mrs smith very well. She has two dogs. she likes to be. She likes the color red She lied roses but you may not know her as well. When that person carl's intimate make an order. Wouldn't it be great if all your employees knew everything about that. Customer data is about personalization when fact that together and share that data with your company right so we call it just force. We call it the three hundred sixty degree view of the customer. We wanna know their likes their preferences their orders. What business have they done with us. What have they done the past. So you really have that personalized Interaction no matter who they're talking to when they call you or when they email you. Or when nate tweet you get. We're seeing growing channels is also about the personalization and it sounds like channel so many channels out there now. We don't just walk into a store. We can't really walk into a store. So you gotta be listening everywhere and meeting your customer where they're out

Failed governing model on the virus breaking his own administration CDC guidelines featuring a medically contagious person that will be addressing a crowd which reinforces the largest problem facing trump's reelection. What Nicole, and I were just discussing fifty-nine percent of voters disapproved straight up how he handles cove it. This is a substantive soon on me, it's hitting Donald Trump's reelection. It has bringing as well. Another moment I'm going to show you right now that many politicos thought they'd never see. I'm talking about the moment when Donald Trump's cove evasions get so secretive. So extreme. So basically, information ridiculous there too much for even his ally. Sean Hannity a trump supporter who literally spoke at a trump rally while working as a Fox News anchor who defends trump nightly, but who felt compelled to press the basic question on the president's health about testing, which of course, informs the medical risk trump poses to others right now. And here it is the moment when Sean Hannity asked if trump's been tested and trump ducks and hannity follows up and trump ducks again and handy even goes there a third time and trump talks again. Have you been tested recently. Too. So the doctors today they think I'm in great shape I'm in great shape. and. I'll tell you it took regenerate. It's phenomenal. Have you had a test since your diagnosis a week ago? Well, what we're doing is probably the tests will be tomorrow the actual task because there's no reason to test all the time. There you have it. Have you tested negative won't say. Did you have a test won't say, when did you have your last test won't say. This. Is a tell. Everyone knows trump has covert so it is hard to see a benign reason to hide a negative new tests while the interview itself featured trump understandably showing some signs of the virus. With three debates with Hillary and Or I think I debate They. They. Related the Mike, but I will say this absentee is okay. Because absentee ballots. Excuse me absentee ballots. It's okay to cough. It's okay to have symptoms. It's okay to feel medically week. The problem is the president denying this going forward. To, pose a risk to others he spent the week in hiding while releasing these videos I'm not playing much of them, but they're government-controlled videos designed to suggest the opposite they are edited by your government, a tax payer accents, public appearances we can't journalistically or information to get much out of them but this morning trump did contradict White House claims by saying he might not have recovered at all. And I recovered immediately almost immediately, I might not have recovered at all. From Gobert. That may be another lie and maybe an exaggeration, but it is very different from the story. That we got from Donald Trump's doctor who now claims that not only is he doing great, but it's completely safe for him to return early to public engagements. If this doctor has medical evidence to prove that claim he must release. He's not. and Donald Trump was literally been caught lying more than any politician in history facts won't even say to Sean Hannity that he has tested negative. Now, that alone wouldn't even be evidence because it could be another lie, but it is something it is telling. That he didn't even do that, it would be something. But in the White House where at least thirty four people have been infected and the public's business at stake on this matter of public health as Donald Trump plows towards government campaign gatherings, he is offering absolutely nothing.

Great Great Resource for you the American worker survey of nearly a thousand people conducted by hosting website who is hosting this dot com found that nearly one in ten workers have already experienced their social media persona being used against them in the workplace.

Admitted to not hiring people based on their online content. Photos. Were at the top of employers concerned lists. Sixty six percent of managers admitting. That a photo. dissuaded. Them, from hiring.

Stop doing boneheaded things and posting things that if a potential employer saw, you would feel like. I don't want to see that. Don't explain it away stop doing clean it up.
Under Trump, US reputation hits rock-bottom: Pew global survey
"For the past three and a half years the united. States has not been very favorably viewed by other Western countries that's according to survey results from the Pew Research Center but a new study they paula shows that our reputation has taken even deeper nosedive just over the past year Jacob poster is at Pugh in Washington Jacob Pugh does a lot of surveys and this is not the first one about America's image what made this survey nick. Well, we've actually been doing surveys for twenty years now, and we've been tracking the international image of the US during that time period and in the current survey in two thousand and twenty, we're finding some the lowest ratings we've ever found among traditional allies of the United States in terms of US favorability including in Japan, the UK Canada you know more than four in ten have positive views of the United States and these are some of the lowest levels of favorability we've ever measured for the United States. The title of the survey says a lot. I think US image plummets internationally as most say country's handled corona virus badly. So how did your survey respondents about the US and the corona virus like what was one of the questions? Where we ask people on whether various countries including their own were doing a good job of dealing with the corona virus outbreak and on that question when we asked about it for the United States, no more than twenty percent and any of the thirteen countries that we surveyed said, the United States was doing a good job of dealing with the krona virus outbreak and that's different from what people told us about their own countries and most of the. Countries we surveyed people were actually fairly happy with how their own country had dealt with the outbreak. The there are places where the US image is seen more positively than other places. What country had the most people who thought the US was responding well to the coronavirus in terms of response to the coronavirus no country was over twenty percent. But when it comes to the US favorability, there are countries were a majority still have a favorable view of. The US, but that number has shrunk dramatically in the last year. South. Korea's one country where fifty nine percent have a favorable view of the US. But even there that's down almost twenty points from two thousand nineteen when seventy seven percent favourable view of the US

right well that's enough that's out that's all I can hear from you now that's it I thank you to majors everyone thank you next week all right thank you guys use on location somewhere for the you know they do there right they they send all of the the weather guys out to stand in the cold they used to send to killing at the same the call right then and now they said Dimitrius at the stand they are dealing is too valuable if skilling gets a cold is off the air for like four days you do you know what that cost this company yeah I know the ideal it's a big big he's a big guy all right let's talk about the other stuff is having in Chicago there's a story that way life it is announced as she is going to look into she is going to propose an audit of the red light camera system here didn't we already do that yeah they've done a couple of times Rahm Emanuel commission to study that he claimed backed up his rationale for speed like cameras speed cameras and red light cameras in this study found that you know dangerous right angle crashes decreased by sixty four percent at intersections with cameras all crashes intersections with cameras went down fifty nine percent but we all know this is much about safety is it is a much about income as it is about safety in the city of Chicago guess how much just just red light cameras guess how much money the city collects in a year just read like not speedlight not speed cameras just on a red light people going through a red light you know with his by the twenty nine to eight sixty million box wow the only policy institute actually added it all up for red light cameras and speed cameras six hundred and seventy two million dollars over the decade from two thousand eight to twenty money in this deal if that's enough to just be a one of the companies are putting those up have to steal them it was what they were doing so the the the company that that has been named for paying bribes to get Martin sand of all the state senator degreaser legislation for suburban for cameras that safelite they operate in the suburbs about sixty years so suburbs I believe that when I went to jail in Ohio and Illinois right Chicago is a different red light camera and speed camera vendor but now because of all this your life for today said that you know she wants an audit to determine that yeah are the intersection where these cameras are is it just about safety or is it also about revenue but look we all know that grams politicians get addicted to the revenue yes exactly that's going to happen they're getting all the lotteries for education if it's if it's one percent better in terms of the crash statistics and it was only for one month of the year no point to that and they know what it's working why give up the money if it's working it's about five six seven years ago your pride remember row the story I did this is when Rahm Emanuel wagged his finger at me at a press conference where he had brought out like a teenager who had a broken leg or something because they have been you know unfortunately hit by a car and had an intersection he's all about safety and then they're rolling out speed cameras in part your parks and schools etcetera because it's about safety in throughout the children anyone who questions the motives well you're obviously for little children being maimed and then after that you remember what we what I did after that every wagged his finger at me I wouldn't got his license plate numbers and ran the license plate numbers for his two car motorcade and you know we found did you find out who's running the red light speed cameras right now and I remember that now I also wonder when they have the little kid with the broken leg didn't did Ron make eye contact with them after use him as a prop right about a year rom push the kid over to the front of the camera away okay do not balance on one leg so well sorry kid well I think I don't think they're going to go anywhere I think they are probably going to stay but it did thing is that the they got to be fair the yellow light has to be the same time as the yellow lights everywhere else they sure in the yellow light to the get ten more tickets the city says the it's standard is three seconds yet there are standards for this sort of thing what's stunning to me is that these cameras make so much money all by themselves what why don't why do you have a state senator to get get even more out there you know that's that's what Sandoval did is he grease the wheels to get one at route eighty three there in Oakbrook terrace and it is allegedly no he pled guilty alright fine my client may have played guilty but he had a head injury uran for sure exactly who he is might have been referring to another to another politician is Daytona

"fifty nine percent" Discussed on KFI AM 640
"Fifty nine percent voted against rent control in California proposition two remember whence have risen sixty five percent over the last ten years you voted against rent control the rent is directly connected to the homelessness problem here in California you don't want wages to rise at least not by minimum wage standards all sorts of resistance so that but you don't want homelessness either no no no you just don't want to see homeless people hear something else remember when governor Gavin Newsom signed into law I think was AB fourteen eighty two which would restrict or cap increases at five percent a year five percent you know what landlords did in response to that they started even thing more people even quicker and raising the rent before the law would take effect January first twenty twenty you have nothing to say about that you complained about Gavin Newsom not addressing the homelessness issue in California something needs to be done we have all these homeless people he does that it was initiative on the ballot you voted against residents sixty five percent I told you didn't matter what control voted against it but you don't want homeless people you know you don't want to see homeless people and that's a real rough for me because the things that we can control this thing so we can do but instead we want to make it a political issue as opposed to a people issue you don't want us to be to build more homeless encampments or you don't want homeless people around you you don't want necessarily to build an expense of a low income shelter in your backyard but you don't want to see homeless people you don't want there to be an increase in wages as far as state minimum wage but you act surprised when they're more homeless people because they can't afford to live in California let's not forget the unemployment rate in California is three point nine percent what does that tell you what does that tell me it means that people have jobs they have jobs the unemployment rate is not going to get much better so they have jobs and we still have out of control homelessness which means wages are not keeping up rhet you don't want rent control so rents are out of control we've had landlords who are easy victim people left and right in the in advance of governor Gavin Newsom's law which is going to cap rate increases a five percent which takes effect January one you don't want that you criticize him for that you know what weight control you know what salary increases by a minimum wage and you don't want homelessness this is a simple math equation if people had more money they would be less hopelessness if people have jobs I just gave you the unemployment rate people have jobs but the jobs are insufficient the jobs are inadequate the jobs are not paying enough in terms of cost of living when it's gone up sixty five percent wages have gone up thirty six percent do the math do the math I'm quite sure that your rent your cost of living has gone up more than what you're making that's why we have the gig economy is people are having to win three jobs they have to supplement their income you have working homeless people who live in their car people who can not afford a place to stay because a two bedroom in LA oftentimes cost more than a two bedroom house mortgage and that's the on funny truth but you don't really care about homelessness you want to politicize it you want to blame someone is if the Democrats fall or is Gavin Newsom's fall when in actuality you as a voter had an opportunity to do something about the rising rents here in LA proper which will which would have helped stem the flow and increase of homelessness here in the LA area or even state why but you voted against that it's almost like no it is like that you want it both ways you want to be able to complain about homelessness you want to be able to blame Gavin Newsom and at the same time take zero responsibility for voting against those things which will directly impact and help the homelessness problem sometimes people are just more comfortable with complaining some people just want to be able to point and say look at all that homelessness and not actually point at themselves and say look at what I have done to abrogate my own responsibility my responsibility personal responsibility to help the issue there are some things that we can do on a community level a civic level which can counteract some of the issues in our community and the argument historically against rent control as well if you if you let me read control is going to send red price is out of control well they're already out of control so what do you want and then he gets into well I don't believe in socialism people have to pull themselves up by the bootstraps and you can't have it both ways what's more important when the finger or helping people and yes I'm going to talk about this during the holiday season because why not what is a better time to talk about why we have homelessness here it's such a disproportionate rate in California it's not a political issue it's eight people issue and if you're more concerned about pointing at the wide variety of homelessness in can't miss whether it's in Santa Ana or harbour city or in your neighborhood and not willing to have a very honest conversation about the things that we've not done here as a state on an individual level on a community in social civic level to help address the problem then you really don't care about homelessness you just don't want to see homeless people this is the time come when

"Has shown that we have a system that the flaws have been exposed in their flaws in this system. The flaws are between your ears pow. There's no flaws in this system whatsoever. Does a great piece believe it's today and national review, and there are a lot of great pieces on the subject of the electoral college. And. Jeez. I wish I knew the guy who wrote it. Let me look at the bottom. Give me a second. I wanna give credit where Credit's due because I believe in that. But I can't see his name. Dan, mclaughlin. That's it. And he says points all these Democrats now. Who support getting rid of the electoral college? Points out the electoral college has been with us since the founding and in its present form since the election of eighteen four some of the reasons for its creation may be obsolete now on the original concept of the electors themselves as important actors in presidential selection process has long since left us, but the fundamental system of electing presidents by fifty Sahil Tena statewide elections, plus TC. Rather than a raw national popular vote has long served America. Well, it isn't going anywhere, and it shouldn't. And the reason he says that is tell me how are you going to amend the constitution to change this? You're not gonna get two thirds out of the Senate. Two senators from every state they're smaller states was small or large states with small populations. And you're not gonna get thirty eight states to ratify. But this fights worth having folks just see the tyranny were face. So what would American politics look like without the electoral college changing. Our current system would unsettle so many this sumptious and incentives that drive presidential politics at the outcomes could easily be unpredictable. But I consider the immediate changes. The core function of the electoral college is to require presidential candidates to appeal to the voters of a sufficient number of large and smaller states rather than just try to run up big margins and a handful the biggest state cities and regions. Critics ignores the important value, sir by having a president who's base of support is spread over a broad diverse array regions of the country. They nation is wide and varied as ours. It would destabilize to have a president elected over the objections of most of the states are American system as a whole both by design and experience demands the patient building a broad diverse political coalitions over time to affect significant change. The presidency works together with the Senate and the house to make that in the city the Senate, of course. Is also a target of elector college critics, but eliminating the equal suffrage of states requires the support of every single state a president elected without regard to state support is more likely to face a dysfunctional level of opposition in the Senate. Here's an example. Most of us would agree that fifty four percent of the vote is pretty good benchmark for a decisive election victory not a landslide. But no questions asked comfortable majority. That's bigger than Donald Trump's victory in Texas and 2016 Trump won eighteen states with fifty four percent or more of the vote in two thousand sixteen Hillary Clinton won ten plus the and the other twenty two states were closer than that. Nationally, just sixteen elections since eighteen twenty four have been won by a candidate who cleared fifty four percent of the vote. The last was Reagan at Eighty-four, and all of them were regarded as decisive wins at the time. Picture a two candidate election with twenty sixteen turn up the Republican wins. Fifty four percent of the vote in forty eight states, losing only, California, New York and DC that's a landslide. Right. But then imagine that the Republican nominee who managed this feat was so unpopular in California, New York and DC that he or she loses all three by seventy five percent to twenty five percent margin. That four hundred fifty one to eighty seven landslide, and they Lectoure college on eight point wins and forty eight states would also be a popular vote defeat. With fifty point seven percent of the vote for the democrat to forty nine point three percent of the vote for Republicans. What he's pointing out is. If you really drive up the vote really really big in these dark blue states with big populations. California and New York, and then you had the city of Washington DC. He saying that Consuegra then attire election. And you can see the problem with that. We're a big country. They say one man one vote what we believe in one man one vote. But the issue is how do you organize it? It's not whether one man one vote is play. It's not how do you organize it state by state or national popular election, and the point is if you have a national popular election, you could have regions of the country that sway the entirety of the rest of the country. That's why they're pushing this not because of one man one vote, but because they think they can have a permanent majority. So out of a total of about one hundred and thirty seven million votes under his example, that's a popular vote margin of victory of one point nine five million votes for candidate who was decisively rejected in forty eight of the fifty states. I'll give you more realistic example, the ever looked at the map of the country. See how many states are red versus blue. And you see how often a presidential candidate wins. All these red states. And the democrat wins blue states, but less blue states red states, but they're much more heavily populated. This is why you have an electoral college. They never wanted a national popular vote when Reagan one two massive popular vote landslides. They never talked about. Now, he says this scenario extreme, but the problem is not elections where some places are overwhelmingly for or against a candidate while the rest of the country's competitive. That's the issue. The most extreme example happened in eighteen sixty please listen. Abraham LINCOLN won eighteen of the thirty three states all the free states except New Jersey giving him fifty nine percent of the electoral college across the states. He one leg got fifty four percent of the popular vote. Just as in our example in the two states that gave electoral votes to Stephen Douglas, New Jersey, which split it's between Lincoln and Douglas and Missouri. Lincoln one just twenty six percent, and he was not even on the ballot. Elsewhere. He got just point nine percent in eleven states. Carried by vice president John Breckenridge and point seven percent in three states carried by John Bell. Lincoln popular paraly- the with a little over thirty nine percent of the vote. And it is true that eighteen sixty is unique case, but the point is the electoral college works against the United regional minority such as the antebellum self that seeks to impose its will in the majority regions of the country, simply by virtue of superior unity. Now, this gets complicated. I know. But the electoral college is the glue that holds he presidential elections together. That makes us a nation. That makes us a nation. You vote in your state, whatever candidate wins in your state gets reelected college votes. Can you imagine? If you vote in your state. Donald Trump wins your state, but Hillary Clinton won the popular vote because of the enormous turn out in California, a blue state in the enormous population in California. And your state has decided that your vote for Trump. Doesn't count that. It's more important that California control all the votes of the states. Does that make sense to you, Mr. producer? But you get my example. So the point is you can have close elections and forty states thirty five states, thirty states, the Republican candidate winning as an example, thirty five states and yet lose the presidency. The national popular vote. Is the greatest fraud of the mall for the reason? I just told you. Let's say it's a very close election. And then the vote start coming in in California. And then after the election, you recall in California more votes start coming they count more and more of all of a sudden, there's one hundred thousand two hundred million votes. And as California goes so goes your vote in every state. Is that what you want? Is that what you want because that's where we're going with the national popular vote which seeks to go around the constitution. The electoral college was not created because of slavery. It is about the dumbest argument that exists. And it's a lie. But throw around the word slavery throw around the word racism, and you can basically eliminate anything. You can eliminate anything. It had nothing to do with slavery. The would not be a country, but for some of the compromises they made like the electoral college, the small states weren't going to join the union or the states with small populations weren't going to join the union they were trying to.

"You know that it's always great to have you back. Just just an amazing week to be honest with you, I want to get to these stories that we have played apple let's start with the state of the union, if you don't mind. I watched I watched the state of the union, and I think the president did what you wanted him to do what I wanted to do. He was concise. He was factual. He got right to the point. And he he actually made the opposing side stand up and applaud which I thought was masterful. And then you had this responses rebuttal from Stacey Abrams that basically said Trump is a racist that he's already caused a shutdown in America's going Helena Handbasket when we just had this really great uplifting speech CBS, their viewers, say seventy six percent of them say great speech, they loved it. Didn't wanna report that CNN fifty nine percent of their viewers said it was great. I got to know though, Abigail. I have to know what are your contemporaries on college campuses, saying about the speech? Did they get in line with what we saw for the networks or do? They still hate Trump. Well, as you pointed out most people who watched the speech credit complain on the same for my liberal curious on college campuses, President Trump's state of the union speech with honestly, one of the best speeches. I've seen him give us president. And you're right. He did exactly what I wanted to do. And what America really wanted to hear his speech hit on a lot of bipartisan policy point, specifically criminal Justice reform, which was awesome for both the right and the left. He talked about infrastructure, which is something everyone on both sides of the aisle can get behind any talk about a lot of different other things that people couldn't admit that. They didn't like even if they didn't offer him even if they do identify us liberal. But I think the important thing you brought up that is I'm seeing on college on my college campus, and with my liberal is that instead of engaging with the speech, which was awesome. Go back to the liberal talking points that Donald Trump is a terrible person. Because x y and z Stacey Abrams do that in her response. And you know, she didn't even watch President Trump's speech. I'm not checking for that report. But it's pretty obvious from her quote unquote response he didn't watch it at all. And my peers are taking a cue from the mainstream media, which has rushed a speech aside, because they know the great speech, and instead they're just focusing on the same old same old talking points about why Trump is a terrible percents. It's a great point. And you're right. Stacey Abrams did not listen to the speech that speech that he did was written. Well, before the state of the union was ever delivered again you and I talked about this off air all the time. I'm not that smart. But for three hours a day. I can go on my show, and no notes, no anything and just observe and talk about what it is that life is thrown at me today. Why can't the left do that? I mean, Nancy and Chuck did the same exact thing. The last time he gave a speech, and they look like idiots standing there in like American gothic. What is it about the left that they're so scripted there? So teleprompter. Do you think just asking your opinion here? Do you think it's because Obama wouldn't go talk to a kindergarten class that it's Ella? Prompter is that why they're so hooked to it? Because if she just gave me an honest response to what he just said, I would respect her so much more. I agree with you. And as a former debater it bothers me to no end that the left cannot listen to an argument and engage in the argument, they just have to focus on their talking points that they came up with two years ago. To move on from. And I think it's because the left especially on universities. They don't need to learn how to debate and to deal backs in statistics and policy proposals. Because they're just the idea that's accepted in the mainstream media on college campuses. And conservatives are really the ones you need to arm themselves with facts and be able to defend themselves. So I am many my conservative ears on campus are ready to have a debate on the second of an engaged with a conversation and how to debate, but the left can't do the same. Because so rarely are they challenged whether it be politicians being challenged by the media or left-leaning students being challenged by their professors. He just doesn't happen. I think Stacy April probably expose the left more than two left wanted to be exposed because you're right. She didn't listen to a word. He said it wasn't really a response to debate. And then you've got to Alexandria, Cossio Cortez who's crying about ice? And and she wants the green new deal. We'll talk about that next time. Let's get into the university of New Mexico was offering up I guess some sort of a getaway to a Trump hotel. And by the way, I've been to the Trump International in Washington. These hotels are amazing. You should want to stay in these hotels. But I guess they're no longer going to do that why what's the issue? So this goes along with what we were just talking left can't get overlooked back that they think Trump is a bad person and the university of New Mexico was offering a giveaway like you said to a three nights day in one of eleven Trump properties is an awesome prize. I would love that prize. Students were upset because of the name Trump. They saw it advertised online they thought on their news feed, and they took to social media to demonstrate their discussed with the university that they would even think of supporting or working with an organization which share the same name as president. So the university pulled it they said there was a problem with the lake and they also didn't like backlash. They receive select cancelled the contest for everyone because a few people were angry that Trump was mentioned on the ad. And what's interesting is that this wasn't even promoting a political candidate wasn't saying President Trump it literally just had the same name. You know, I it's not like he's done it because Barack Obama never really worked a real job and hadn't developed anything and hasn't created jobs. But let's let's pretend for a minute that there was an Obama hotel. Those people would have been thrilled to win a chance to go. Stay at the hotel. That's the kind of delusion that we deal with daily. Don't we right? Yeah. You're exactly right. And what's interesting is this is just the same pattern on college campuses. When leftists don't like something. They try to ruin it for everyone. If a conservative didn't like the contest prize. They wanna try to get the contest cancel they would not enter the contests. No one's forcing these students participate. Just let it beep. But instead they go on ruin it for everyone. All right. So last weekend was Super Bowl Sunday. I don't watch football during the season or the playoffs because of the ridiculous disrespect for our flag anthem, but the Super Bowl we have a party at my house, my family's done it since they've been around my my eldest daughter will be twenty eight this year. And we've always done I can't not do it. So we had the party we had to get together. You're telling me that university of Pennsylvania the same. Weekend as the Super Bowl where the mainly est man on earth. Allegedly you're playing a game and millions upon tens of millions of people are watching it. They decided that was a good time for what kind of a conference hosted a toxic masculinity. Conrad. Now, what does that even look like what does that mean? And who goes to this? So I'm assuming the very left leaning students at the university of Pennsylvania. We're more than happy to attend. But they had a speaker. Come and talk about performance of toxic masculinity. Whatever that means. Yeah. Me neither. Honestly, I'm sure very long boring. Seminar would have talked to you what that meant and leftist speak. But it's really not even worth trying to understand in my opinion. And it's just another example of the laughed looking at something that name stay in American culture football, something that men watch a winning love to participate in and to distract from it with this idea that masculinity somehow is toxic. And I think that's really dangerous. There's nothing wrong with a boy who likes to put on a helmet each Sunday and tackle is friends and play a sport by hosting at the same weekend. I don't think it's any coincidence. And I think that, you know, the trend in culture today, and especially on college campuses is saying that if you like to be attritional man, or if you're a woman likes Manu value strength masculinity. That's somehow bad thing. Suddenly, it's very strange because as you alluded to this is something that we celebrate. We love watching it. We love. Playing it. We we love gathering and and rooting for our team. What's interesting about sports is you and I can disagree politically. And we cannot have the same favorite color. We might like different foods. But if we're cheering for the same team, we're on the same team that we get along at least for a few hours on a Sunday. I don't know why people don't see a positive out of that. And it's using football as the political football pun intended is so stupid in this day and age, do you think that their endgame is? Let's get rid of anything that has muscular or masculinity or mail attached to it. Because mean, we live in this alleged gender fluid society now, and of course, football is not gender fluid at all. I sure hope that's not the end game value traditional masculinity. I think it's awesome. Bad men have a different role in society, and they enjoy doing different things than women do per se. And I think that you're right. It is a dangerous trend that we're seeing where they try to take away anything that is muscle e or manly or even just unites us on something. That's not politics. At the end of the day. It's a bad thing opinion, and it should stop. I agree with you. It's own from chemistry reform dot org campus, reform dot org. Get their go read these great stories everyday quickly. The last one we have to go to this. Because it's an enlightening story is one that sounds like a no brainer. But I guess the the president of Purdue had to had to push for this to happen. What's going on there? So I did want to talk about this. Because I think too often I come on and other people from cannabis reform come on and talk about all the bad things are happening our college campuses. But this did give me a little bit of the president of the university said that all students in order to graduate should pass some sort of civic tests to prove that they know the constitution, and they know the way our government works, and they know different things that happen in American civil society. And I think this is an awesome idea that should be implemented. Not only not Purdue universities across the United States. If Alexandria Cortez had to pass this, of course. You wouldn't be on Instagram livestream talking about three chambers of congress. I could not agree with you more. But I mean, the story says and this makes me nuts. There are some people are actually against us learning about how our government works who's against this. I don't know if it's because they're against a celebration of American government and understanding and appreciating American, unfortunately, sometimes the life is unpredictable in in what they say they want and what they're meaning is behind it. But I do think that this is something we should definitely pursue props to the president of Purdue University for saying this. I'm sure he knew that it would not be popularly accepted on college campuses where it's considered cool to hate America. I've got a theory. Tell me if you agree with me, I think that the leftists on campus the hippies or their or their children that are now the professors don't want people to learn the constitution because they're teaching them an alternative reality in America. And if people actually knew have the country works, and how was founded where a value system is based upon they might not have this far leftist ideology, where they they think socialism is great. Do you agree with that? I mean, you can't if you teach them which really going on we can't control them anymore. Yes. I completely agree with that assessment. I mean, the reason why it's so popular to try to ban guns and take guns away from everyone else. Because people don't understand the second amendment. And why it was created maybe a students understood that they wouldn't be so gung ho on taking everyone's God's way. So you're right with with knowledge comes the inability to brainwash college students into promoting a leftist agenda, and I think that's really what they are. Scared of I love what you do. I love having you on its campus reforms chemistry formed at org. Abigail Marrone Abigail. Thanks a million. Let's see this again, very soon. We'll we'll we'll tweet this out.

North Korea says it's preparing for a second meeting with President Trump, although no data's been set. And does AP's Charles de LA desma reports the two countries remain at odds over several issues. Let's say a major sticking point is what denuclearization steps Kim should take. To move forward stalled nuclear negotiations, and what rewards President Donald Trump should provide to push him to take those measures nuclear negotiations have been stuck since Kim and Trump met in Singapore last June for the first summit which ended with big denuclearization pledges from Kim. I'm charleston.

Report finds a quarter of all jobs in the US could be mostly performed by machines using current technology. The study's lead author says such automation could come in the next few years or take decades. But the next economic downturn is likely to accelerate it and with new advances in artificial intelligence. It's not just industrial and warehouse. Robots? Settle alter the American workforce self checkout kiosks and computerized hotel concierges will do their part, however as machines takeover routine tasks the report suggests a majority of workers will be able to adapt to this.

One of the ideas suggested as they open it, they pay a pro rated down payment for the wall that Dow payments suggestion immediately shot down by house speaker Nancy Pelosi. Not.
"fifty nine percent" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"And Barry Bonds up to fifty nine percent. Basically what they need is another sixty five to seventy. Votes over the next three years and the increments they've been going up. Many don't feel they're going to make it at that point. So we'll have to wait and see on that as far as those who are out to one of the other things you have to the milestones. You have to hit. Here's you have to be at least at five percent or above to stay on the ballot. These five people were not. So they'll be off the ballot for good Michael young, Lance Berkman, Miguel Tejada royals while and possible Polanco all under five percent of the vote in what's really interesting about this class is the people that got in and how they got it. Let's start with Mariano Rivera goes in as the first unanimous selection in the history of the game that has the longest history, by the way in this country. There's no doubt about that. But he goes in as a reliever, and obviously Mike a lot of people whether they want to admit it to admit to it or not had a thing against relievers on a lot of levels. Like, okay, it's not the same as being a starting pitcher. Right. You're not out there as long so for him to be the first one to go in and go in unanimously as a reliever says something then you have Edgar Martinez, essentially, he was a designated hitter, occasionally, he would play in the field and a lot of purists will scoff especially in the National League not a complete player. Can't do all of this can't do that. He went in as a designated hitter. Which tells you that's no longer a stigma. Right. What we saw those in NFL. I mean for the punter Ray guy. Finally, would certainly don't have a whole lot of placekicker Zooey to too pure placekicker Morten Andersen. Right. And you'll get another one and Adam Viteri five years after he's done. We don't have a special teams player in the hall of fame. You wonder if that will ever happen? He tasks play before the great Stephen was drafted with the Oilers. I believe it was around after I was with the Houston Oilers. To be an unbelievable special teamer self. There are some of those specialty positions in some sports that just take more time than others. Exactly. And then there's the case of Mike Mussina, Mike Mussina didn't win twenty games in his career until his last year in the bigs, Mike Mussina never wanna say young award. I think he was a he received votes for the Cy Young nine times. But he never received a asi- young. So people will look at your pitching while did you win Cy youngs. How many times did you win twenty games? I think those things are being taken out of the sport. We saw that with Jacob degrom. Yeah. Winning this waiting what eleven wins sabermetrics has taken that out. A bit Messina has eighty three wins. He's Eighty-three war Windsor. Bob replacement perfect replacement that ranks fifty eighth all time. It's ahead of first ballot hall of fame pitchers Nolan Ryan and Tom glavin by away his three sixty eight era will be the third highest in Coopers. Town behind Jack Morris and read roughing so again sabermetrics coming into play as a numbers the numbers didn't really meet those statistical milestones that we see a lot of hall of Famer foot by but they're gonna go by the wayside as we've seen that three hundred where you're not going to get another one three thousand hits doesn't mean at times doesn't meet automatic. And obviously at times doesn't also mean that you have to actually obviously get there to get into the hall of fame and ROY halladay the same way was a late bloomer. Now, the back half of his career on believable from two thousand three to two thousand eleven he might have been the best pitcher in the major leagues at that time, but only two hundred wins, and you're right Messina had two hundred seventy wins. My two hundred seventy are we ever going to see another three hundred game pitcher three hundred win pitcher. I don't know. You're trying to think who is going to be right now is the closest, but I don't think he's going to get there. Now. I mean, honestly if that if that three hundred pitcher three and win pitcher is there he might not be playing in the big. Well, yeah. I mean, listen, we'll see how the game changing. These guys are just aren't aren't going as long. I mean, it's just it's just a way. It was I mean, they just don't pitch the innings that were pitch another make some of the people kind of spit in their grave a little bit. But. It's just the way it is right now. So again, congratulations to all those going into the hall of fame that again Lee Smith and Harold Baines also going in along those those lines we talk about incredible.
