So yeah, I mean it's really just continue to watch and see how this sort of plays out and if the dominoes start falling in other states and other countries, Mike Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks for. Welcome back. What we're watching today as Madeira. which just inked. Deal with the US government to the tune of one point, five, billion dollars for one hundred, million doses of the covid nineteen vaccine it's been developing. The vaccine is currently in a phase three clinical trial, which involves thirty thousand volunteers and is widely considered to be among the vaccines farthest along in development. As, we've discussed on the show previously, the company has published results showing that the vaccine has produced an immune response in forty five volunteers. That's not a lot but this latest deal is a big vote of confidence from the US government and even Maderna's CEO essentially described it as that. That said the US has now spent over nine billion dollars unsecured vaccines from different developers with promising candidates. Madonna is the latest deal. We're also watching TIKTOK. My colleague enough read reported this morning that if trump's order to ban TIKTOK takes effect it would threaten the company's plans to hire ten thousand workers in the US. The APP drew fresh scrutiny earlier this week when the Wall Street Journal broke that it had been collecting data using a technique that Google had banned. axios was not able to learn why it stopped. All of those jobs are big incentive to let the deal go through. That would allow a company to buy TIKTOK. Microsoft is still working on their bed. The Wall Street Journal Report However adds fodder for critics who say it remains an unacceptable security risk. And we're. Big, thanks for listening and to producers.

Dr. J. Mario Molina Discusses Medicaid Program Financing in Light of the On-Going COVID-19 Pandemic

"On background, the ongoing Kobe nineteen pandemic has caused the worst unemployment rates since the Great Depression. Since Medicaid and the economy are negatively correlated when one's up the others down. Recent Kaiser family. Foundation study concluded that by January, seventeen million people could be newly eligible for the Medicaid. Program that would represent a twenty four percent increase in current program participation. As state. Which Medicaid funding is typically the second largest state expense after education they've cratered largely since two thirds of state income is generated via income and sales taxes. One month ago, the C. P. P. estimated states that are required to bounce their budgets. Each year are looking at revenue shortfalls totally accumulative five, hundred, fifty, five, billion dollars over fiscal years twenty through twenty two. In an effort to short state Medicaid programs and mitigate the economic fall back fall out in mid-march. The congress increased the federal government's Medicaid match termed eth- map by six point two percent in late. May The house further up the match to fourteen percent under the Heroes Act. The here act would also provide more than one train to state and local governments including nine, hundred, fifty, billion flexible aid. The Senate Majority leader however failed to refuse to take the house bill. As of today, it appears the presence executive steps taken Saturday to address four non healthcare. Related issues has caused Congress to journey until September seventeenth that is another code relief package will at best not be considered until late that month. With Megan and discussed the pandemics effects on the Medicaid. Program is Dr. Mario. Molina. So that document as a somewhat lengthy background introduction, let me begin by asking you generally what's your assessment? Of the Kobe nineteen pandemic effect on the Medicaid population I asked particularly in context of the fact that Medicaid is largely responsible for covering long term care facility a healthcare, and we've seen of course disproportion effect on long-term facility residents. I think that Medicaid patients are going to be disproportionately affected for a couple of reasons as Medicaid, the biggest pair of long-term care in the country. and clearly those patients have been hard hit. But we're also seeing that it disproportionately affects people who are lower income who are working as essential workers in essential businesses. Most Medicaid patients work, but they're working in low income jobs often without. Health Insurance paid for by the employer. So they are probably greater risk and we've certainly seen that black and Latino. Are More affected by. Colbert Dan. Caucasian population. Okay. Thank you. Yes. Definitely the case. Before. I ask about the Congress and state responses. Let me ask you this question. There's a lot of discussion and speculation regarding healthcare utilization. meaning that covid nineteen will will cause comparatively an increase in utilization. Interestingly enough I looked at some statistics that showed because of elective surgeries being canceled or postponed. Data showing then April. Healthcare expenditures were down almost forty percent and were still down ten percent or ten percent lower your year this past June. So this question obviously very much relates who pressure on state budget. What's your understanding of what will see relative arm balanced utilization in the Medicaid program? This year and going into next year. Well it's going to have different effects in different areas clearly, hospitalization and physician visits are down. in part because people are afraid to go to the doctor or the hospital. In. Part because Kobe has crowded patience out of elective surgeries. So those things are all down. Testing is going to be up testing expenses are up. and I think that overall you're going to see that utilization is lower in the second quarter and probably the third quarter and expected and from previous years. and I think that it's going to remain that way for a while people are still afraid to go to the doctor for many things and there is concerned that as a result, things like cancer screenings and treatments will be deferred. So we could see some pent-up demand perhaps next year but I do think that for the remainder of this year. Overall Service utilization will be lower than expected. Some areas, it'll be higher. But overall it'll be. It'll be down from previous years.

Makeover: Oil Giant BP Promises to Cut Oil Production, Invest in Renewables

"Somebody had to go I. It's no surprise that Covid Nineteen Delta Draconian blow to the oil and gas industry stay at home orders and line shutdowns of dramatically reduced the need for oil and gas prices and earnings plunged well. Now at least one giant oil company says demand for fossil fuels will never be the same again and it's taking steps not just to pivot, but to make itself over entirely. That business is BP the london-based behemoth last week, the one, hundred, ten year, old company announced a seventeen billion dollar quarterly loss and multibillion dollar writedown of its assets. But what generated headlines was its announcement that over the next decade, it intends to discard its identity as a fossil fuel business. Instead, it'll invest heavily in a wide variety of renewable energy technologies on its way to achieving net zero emissions by twenty fifty. Specifically bb says it will cut oil and gas production by forty percent over the next decade. At the same time, it plans to put ten times as much money into renewable energy investments as it currently does with a goal of investing five billion dollars a year by twenty thirty bio-energy hydrogen, carbon, capture and storage investments in electric vehicle charging stations are all said to be on the menu as our wind and solar. From. A business perspective the move does make some sense BP expects demand for oil to fall between fifty and seventy five percent over the next thirty years as the world attempts to slow global warming. In June BP officials acknowledged that the pain caused to the oil business by the pandemic isn't temporary. It's permanent. They say in a statement, they said covid nineteen would accelerate an existing transition to a lower carbon economy as country seek to quote, build back better meaning in ways less harmful to the environment. The shift is taking a toll on BP's employees. The company announced in June that it plans to lay off ten thousand people. BP's dismal second quarter didn't seem to faze investors instead they embrace the company's new renewable energy shift its share price leapt seven percent on the news stuart joyner an analyst at the market research firm redburn remarked that the move was major positive, thoughtful, and largely unexpected the New York Times reported. Unexpected too many perhaps, but close observers of the company may not have been that surprised. BP has spent the last decade clawing back from its disastrous deepwater horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. For obvious reasons, the company hasn't exactly been a darling of environmentalists, but quickly after becoming CEO in February Bernard Looney made a pledge for BP to achieve net zero emissions by twenty fifty it was the first of giant global oil companies to do so. At the time both socially conscious and traditional investors applauded BP's pledge Andrew Logan and oil and gas director at series a climate change advocacy organization said EP was setting a new standard for leadership in the oil industry CNN reported and Barclays analysts called the plan both fundamental and radical. Last week. Looney. said in a statement quote. This coming decade is critical for the world in the fight against climate change and to drive the necessary change in global energy systems will require action from everyone but so far oil giants. Exxon and Chevron have not followed suit indeed mobile continues to expand oil exploration and production around the world despite its own sharp drop in earnings. The Washington Post reported BP has attempted and failed at other eco, friendly initiatives over the years and BP will continue to invest in and make most of its money from fossil fuels for at least another five years. Still observers agree that this is the company's most transformative move yet, and the realities of business may give BP's ecoconscious strategy more momentum than has existed in the past. As reporter Steven muffs wrote in. The Washington Post for. BP. Is trying to get ahead of what climate change might forced the industry to do. Anyway.

Big Music Deal for Spotify

"Going to begin with spotify. Latest partnership. And it's not a podcast which has been sort of the trend for a while with spotify when they come out with material news. But today it's the fact that spotify has a new long-term licensing deal with universal music group. Help me understand this I. It seems like spotify is going to provide not just marketing, but also data and analytics from their platform so that they can give universal music group, a sense of who is listening to what? Exactly, so I actually when we talk this morning to topics, I chose this topic because I just yesterday. Actually we were having sort of an investor roundtable about spotify and I am. Well I think that the platform is great. I kind of have a couple of questions. Particularly Round the valuation that there to ban demanding right now. It's almost fifty five billion dollar company and I just. For a little bit of. backstory or history on that market, so Ford Music labels actually owned about ninety percent of the market and so. Historically what we've seen is that pricing power is solidly in the hands of the labels within spotify so. They've struggled to really turn. Or demonstrate a consistent level of profitability and so You mentioned that they've pursued podcast. One thing I think that's a great idea because. You know if we think about exclusive content, so then pursuing a strategy similar to say Disney or Netflix or Hulu. It's not really possible music again for music labels on about ninety percent market. They tried to start their own label and actually backed off from an initiative because it was sort of Put them in at odds with their suppliers in some respect right so podcast is one way that they have tried to get that exclusive content deal, but I remained a little bit hesitant about this platform, just given I think podcasts are sort of a secondary offering that spotify particularly right now and people are still going there for the music and I think. Valuation today didn't necessarily Justify, With their music offering, but today's deal like you mentioned is the game changer for spotify, so they've signed this agreement with Vivendi's Universal Music Group. And for background, universal owns about forty percent of all US music for straightening and so. You're right the agreement right now. Is that you I'm Jay will provide their sort of massive music, Cadillac restraining and in return you J is becoming a spotify testing and development partner for new tools, services marketing products. So like you've mentioned there is a couple of things that have already been started on. It is part of what they're calling. Their two sided platform so. For example what they've been doing that, labels cannot pay to deliver push notifications that promote new music to user is either previously listened to that promoted artists added to their library and what they've seen. Is that Spending in marketing in this way is actually more effective than other options so I'm hopefully more agreements like that will come into play. Is Yet another way for spotify to get a little bit more margin on their core music streaming business. So this is what I actually think is could be a very strong game changer for spotify. For All the headlines that spotify has made and rightfully so for the acquisitions. They've made in the podcast space. My first thought when I saw this was. Oh, they're getting back to their bread and butter. Like this. This this is this is the main reason. People are going to spotify and signing up for it. You mentioned the valuation. A stock is up five six percent on this deal. It's nearly doubled in two thousand, nine, hundred twenty I mean you're not wrong when you say by the valuation of spotify you can, you can make bullish on this business and still look at what it has done over the last six, and a half months and sort of shake your head and say it's. Not a cheap stock right I mean I would say you know I think they've had a strong year. They have demonstrated stickiness to this platform that was certainly tested during Kovic. Pre Cove about fifty percent of their listening hours for spent outside the home, so assumed that was sort of commuting commuting time so either on A. smartphone or In the auto things like that, and so as covert happened. People were worried that you know people you don't have that those same anymore and so on. Are People really going to stick with? Continue to pay for this premium platform, and the answer actually was yes, so rather than listening out of the home. He blurted shifting where they're listening and what they're listening to you, so they talked a lot about. SMART. Connected, devices so gaming consoles. Things like that have seen an uptick in usage, also sort of these wellness or calming playlist, rather than they're commuting sort of upbeat things, but I mean that was one significant test of this platform that I think you know pre pandemic to necessarily seen or known that data, so it was encouraging. They've had a good year.

"A lot of US never get around to creating a will to make it easier. The APP free will would like to invite you to use their free online tools. co-founder Jenny Chia sprawling is here to tell us about it hi Jenny. So free will is a website that anyone can make a free state plan on, so that includes a will help care directive and a power of attorney. It's really easy process. You just go to www dot, free dot com, and you answer a series of questions very similar to when attorney might ask you in person, and our software takes those answers and populates a form a legal document that you can then print inside with witnesses and your gotten so on average it takes users about twenty minutes to get a completely free estate plan set up. Already your called free will so this is a totally one hundred percent free will. That's right. It's only possible through the support of nonprofits, so we get one hundred percent of revenue from nonprofits that WanNa make it easy for people to not only set up their estate plans, but also potentially, but you're not required to leave money for charities. Okay because I know people spend a lot of money to lawyers to get will's made. That's right and we think it should be very different access to lies a huge problem in the United States today instead, so we see that you know underrepresented communities have half the rate of will writing than majority communities, and that ends up being a huge barrier to wealth transfer from generation to generation. Some people just never get around to it, aretha. Franklin died without a will. Acting, right and princess well. Wow crazy. So, how long has the been out? It's been out for about three years, and we're actually experiencing a huge spike in demand right now since Kovic started booth, because people are actually able to or think about mortality for the first time, and having really important conversations with their family about what their hopes and dreams are if they were to pass away. How long does it take to create a will on the APP? On average less than twenty minutes. Okay what what motivated to start the at. I the big motivation. Is that you know we talked to a lot of people about their charitable giving and realized a lot of people don't have the ability to gave large amounts of money while. They're saving for their mortgage. Their kids educations things like that, but when they pass away, they might own a home and be willing to share a kind of five or ten percent of that with charity, and it turns out. This kind of charitable giving is actually the largest type of giving. On average in a person's life, so we started free well with the promise of making Book Estate Planning on charitable, giving in not really easy, and we've now raised over one point five billion dollars in commitments attorneys.

What will out-of-work Americans do without that extra $600 per week?

"We begin this week at the end of July in a year. Ain't none of us. GonNa Forget by pointing out the enduring reality of vis economy, thirty two and a half million Americans aren't working. They are trying to get by on expanded federal unemployment benefits expanded in who can get him gig workers, the self-employed people who can't go to work because school is closed, or because somebody in their household is sick. They all get them. Those benefits are also expanded in how much people can get the extra six hundred dollars a week? You've been hearing so much about here and elsewhere. You've also been hearing. I'm sure that the last of those checks go out in like a week. Unless Congress and the White House decide to do something. Marketplace's Mitchell Hartman gets is going. Back, in March Austin, Texas was gearing up for the annual south by southwest. Festival and everyone theater folks waiters, bartenders car share drivers was about to be working round the clock for a whole month, and making a significant chunk of their annual pay, then covid nineteen hit, the city announced that was going to be shut down. It just pulled the plug out from under every day Stephen Pruitt's lighting, designer and videography. videography he had gigs setup for south by southwest, and then he was going to China with Texas, tap dance troupe, instead myself and everyone else just lost every job that we've had before the pandemic. He'd been out of luck. Freelance workers aren't typically eligible for jobless benefits. But Washington made them eligible and added six hundred dollars. A week to everybody's on employment checks. It's been the difference between you know my rant. Versus, not if Washington doesn't extend the six hundred dollar week, pandemic payments come August pruitt will be getting a Texas sized unemployment check of two hundred a week. Like at that point. I'm probably still paying my rent, but I may have to talk to my bank about Can I defer my car loan? Okay? I can still survive, but now I'm going to be figuring out how to prioritize which bills to. To pay all over the country, people in states with comparatively low jobless benefits like taxes will face a fifty to seventy five percent. Pay Cut at a time when getting a new job isn't necessarily easy or safe. Says Andrew Staedtler at the century. Foundation, and that means people worried about losing their housing having to move in with relatives. You're not really be able to get by on unemployment benefits. Staedtler says. The federal supplement will suck twenty five billion dollars a week out of the economy. Money people spend right away on essentials. Rent food transportation. The money is also keeping some small businesses alive like an assemblies bakery in Kansas City. where she is cooked server and businessmen. When the state shutdown she got on pandemic on employment. It's gone towards shop expenses I. Mean I still have to pay rent? Even when I'm close and utilities, and all that I haven't had any revenue really when the state re opened, she was no longer eligible for unemployment, so she reopened fully masked takeout only and then Monday I woke up with flu symptoms and went to the doctor I'm presumptive positives shows quarantining now and her shop. Shop is closed if she doesn't start getting unemployment payments soon. She's not sure she'll be able to reopen. I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace exactly how much spending power that extra six hundred bucks gets. It varies a whole lot of course depending on where you are colleagues at the APM. Research labs of in Saint Paul of built an interactive map that will give you some sense of it. You can check that out at marketplace dot ord.

Followed by Alibaba tencent facebook McDonald's. And Mastercard rounding out the top ten. Maybe, the weirdest part of the story. Besides this, actually being a thing is how the brands are categorized. Apple is actually the top tech company according to brands that's because the organization classifies Amazon in retail. Even while noting the hardware, it makes the e book video. Music Services. It offers and Amazon. Web Services. which is about as tack as you can get?

"I looked? At Amazon, fresh whole foods cart posts. Posts, mates, target and Walmart. Let me fill you in Amazon fresh the promises same-day delivery when you visit the website as long as you were prime member, which caused one hundred nineteen dollars a year, and you order a minimum amount, usually thirty five or forty dollars when I made by order on Tuesday, morning I was promised a delivery by one thirty, and then when I tried later on again they're all gone. Gone, but they had free delivery on Wednesday and Thursday that made me happy. Whole Foods, which is also owned by Amazon their promises free two hour delivery again with prime membership I ordered it five minutes to two, and they put a four ninety nine delivery attached to it to have the food derived by four or free. If I could wait till six, which of course I could fill out better than waiting a week. Week, which is what it took me when I was trying to do it locally from some of the markets around La target tacked ten dollar delivery fee onto a forty dollar order unless I paid him one hundred bucks for the shipped service, which is owned by target. Now they did agree to get the order over to me within two hours, which is great, but it didn't like that hundred dollars and furthermore folks. Target has a feature where they will meet you outside and put all the food into your trunk. The only problem is. If you order on your computer, you can't get that service. You have to do it on the APP, so order on the APP. Instant card instant is the biggest of all of them, and they do food delivery for a lot of local markets. But the results are different when I ordered from Ralph's, which is part of the Kroger chain? I was ordered a two hour window when I ordered from Vancouver, which is part of the Albertson's chain. There were many hours, so they said I could get it that evening. FONS wanted to charge me ten dollars. Ralph's did not so that's a little weird, and of course on top of those fees is a big tip. You WanNa. Give a tip for.

Incontinence Problems at Any Age

"Welcomed addition of nutrition today's show is brought to you by a nutritional weight and wellness. My Name Is Kara Harper and I'm a licensed nutritious I also have a masters degree in holistic health, and I'm very excited to be here this morning with my co-host Melanie Beasley Melanie registered and licensed Dietitian. She's been practicing nutrition for three decades. I think in a variety of settings bono. Okay sorry. You would never know by looking at you mail, but. Both Mellon I. We've personally had our share of health challenges over the years. Some of you maybe have even heard some of our personal stories. If you've tuned in for many years, and if you also have health challenges, we understand we know what you're going through. We also understand the importance of eating real food to conquer those health challenges, so we want to welcome you and welcome all of our listeners to today's show and the topic of our show today is incontinence problems at any age, and isn't that interesting because he always thinking continents is just you know someone's getting older, but it really kinda fact. Yeah from bed-wetting that wedding from the time you're little you know up until end of life it can affect. People ran. It affects quality of life so I'm really excited that we're talking about this and putting things out on the table for people to think about good morning. Everyone, I bet some of you are thinking. What is my diet and nutrition have to do with incontinence or lack of bladder control? Control well, many of our clients have said to us I thought my problem was structural problem and only doctor could help me certainly not a Dietitian nutritionist I know by UCAR, but they fill out a lengthy wellness form to come in for us. Look at in. That's of the questions on there, so some of you may also be thinking the exact same thing, so it may be surprising to know that. A number of our clients ask us for help with incontinence, which is defined as involuntary loss of urine. But car you and I were talking about. It's more than just you know. Expand a little bit on what you were saying that you had listened to that matter. I was just listening to a doctor. She was a urologist and she was just discussing kind of the criteria for diagnosing incontinence. And you know it's the involuntary loss, but it's also the frequency that urgency you know I have to get to the. The bathroom right away. I can't wait also night. You know nighttime frequency is one of the diagnosis as well you know if people are getting up two or more times per eight, that would fall under incontinence as well. Yes, and it affects it affects sleep which we've talked about before. Definitely yeah, and because continents is such a very personal topic, it can also be rather embarrassing to a significant number of people. Many, people feel uncomfortable talking about it even to their doctor. And when we bring it up I, think they they're almost relieved to have someone to discuss that issue with For that reason, we wanna get into the topic. Get it up and out in the open as a dietician WHO's helped numerous people overcoming continents I, believe your food choices can work magic on the symptoms of incontinence, coronary artery and talk about the foods that are certainly considered bladder irritants. We will also talk about foods that helped strengthen and maintain certain key muscles that are necessary for bladder control. And incontinence it's a really common problem like we already mentioned for both men and for women, and in fact, twenty five million adults in our country suffer from incontinence, seventy five to eighty percent are women. That's probably not a surprise in reality in a one in four women over the age of eighteen will experience episodes of leaking urine, and and this is the statistic that Kinda got me. Is that half of women over sixty struggle with this, but again it can happen to under sixty as well absolutely. And Stress Urinary incontinence that that's just kind of a data separate diagnosis, but kind of a subcategory that usually shows up. You know after childbirth, and after menopause for women, and then some prostate cancer treatment can also trigger incontinence for men, yes, and getting men to talk about it in clinic. I find too, that they're. They're happy to bring it up, but you have to bring it up I because people just assume well, this is just who I am. I'm getting older. This is my portion. That I have to deal with now. Not knowing that could, there can be some help well. Have you noticed the number of TV ads for disposable incontinent products? Now? Yes, I have some people. Call them adult diapers. I don't like that I. Think it's In two thousand eighteen five billion dollars were spent on the purchase of incontinence products. The cost of these incontinence supplies can easily beat two hundred to three hundred per month. The National Association for Continents Reports that. The psychological cost of urinary incontinence can be depression. Isolation decreased self esteem and work related difficulties. Yeah I mean even the sleep piece to think about how lack of sleep. If you're getting up several times at night, you don't get that quality or length of sleep. That can affect mood that can affect work performance immune system, so it's you know it's a big issue. And why isn't continent so prevalent? Well one reason it could be from following a low fat, low calorie style of eating in addition to not eating enough protein, and often those will go together. And a lot of. We say women because I think a lot of women are. Wanting to lose weight and. They're working. They're trying to do this by going fat, free low calorie, and that automatically sort of cuts out a lot of protein in the Diet because if they're trying to avoid fat, you're. You're not getting a lot of protein so. Following a low fat, low protein diet has left some people with weak pelvic floor, muscles and thin fragile tissues in the urethra, so it's a lack of beneficial healthy fats, and then short changing the amount of protein that you're getting that could really have a direct influence on incontinence, and I always tell clients how important it is to eat. Sufficient amounts of beneficial healing fats I mean feel like we're always kind of trying to promote the healthy fats right now we are. We're trying to overcome decades of it is. It's fear fat forty to fifty

Ford reveals the redesign of its biggest moneymaker, the F-150 pickup

"For nearly forty years the Ford F. series pickup has been America's best selling vehicle not just trucks all vehicles now the ever popular F. one fifty is about to undergo a major redesign Keith Norton tracking the story for Bloomberg and he's on the KRLD news line from Detroit Keith what are you hearing from Ford Motor Company yes Ford is completely redesigning the F. one fifty which is its top seller and and the the biggest biggest changes changes are are really really in in the the interior interior the the exterior exterior looks looks pretty pretty similar similar to to what what we've we've had had for for the the last last five five years years but but on on the the inside inside things things are are very very different different because because the the big big twelve twelve inch inch touch touch screen screen in in the the middle middle of of the the dashboard dashboard which which is is put put support support on on equal equal footing footing with with the the ram ram that that has has gotten gotten a a lot lot of of sales to having a high tech interior they also put in these seats that fold all the way back like you're on a in a first class airline seats so you can sleep in your house one fifty that when you're driving obviously but apparently owners told them that they like to take power naps and wanted seats to accommodate that they've also put in a workspace in the center console the the shifter actually folds away at this laptop desk essentially in the center of the truck where you complete your laptop to your lunch or whatever and they have added a lot of driver assist features there's even a hands free driving future after debuting the electric Mustang marquis and the F. one fifty that'll be coming in twenty twenty one but you'll be able to go down the road without your hands on the steering wheel as long as you keep your eyes on the road so there are a number of features like this that that really takes the F. one fifty to the next level and into the new century N. Keith Ford has had some financial issues of late certainly the pandemic hasn't helped how crucial is it that they get it right with this redesigned pickup the F. one fifty is the franchise player for Ford so it's absolutely crucial that they keep this money maker willing they are going to lose five billion dollars this quarter because of the coronavirus should shut downs they had all of their factories for two months and they were already struggling financially before that they had a very botched launch last year of a redesigned version of its explorer sport utility vehicle so they're really trying to get back on their footing and there's nothing that can help the more than the F. series pickup they sell almost nine hundred thousand of these things each year it represents forty two billion in annual revenue from Jess that product so this is how Ford makes most of its money they've got to get this

"five billion dollar" Discussed on Marketing Over Coffee

"It was picked over two million followers on that lincoln account. We saw kinds the traffic from that so congratulations on getting that in there yeah that shadowed also goes to ashley's <unk> over top rank marketing. They're the folks. Were doing that campaign managing that campaign on behalf of lincoln so it was with their assistance that we will to draft this up. It's funny though and we. I think we did that like february. Just the nature of <unk> calendars a multi-billion dollar corporations with massive legal departments. It takes a while but thanks to trickle out. You know stuff doesn't just trump right away. It's nice to finally have something with a long tail like like that. You get to life and get out the door. That's that's a great thing and you so again. We thank them for their service. Before the show lincoln dot com slash mc going over there to grab your credit use. I use it for any projects you've gone on. He really appreciate their support of the show. So you had a bunch of data crunching it looking at youtube an instagram engagements what's going on there. The things that i've been experimenting with is is there some other some data points that would be useful to marketers that you could almost fully automate and make ak- part of a newsletter because one of the things you as a marketer show is doing. How can i continue to add value how can make newsletter so good that no one would dare skip it so there are a whole bunch of different. A._p._i.'s data sources out there in the when i was playing with this week was using both talk walker which is social media monitoring software and and then crowd tangle which is <hes> facebook's account level social media monitoring software pulling out a couple of different data points about what's working for youtube. We polled hold thirty three thousand five hundred ninety five videos that had more than one hundred views so that was the criteria has to have had at least a hundred views and had to have been published within the last asked seven days and said okay what of those videos what was the the median engagement rate and the media engagement rate was about thirty nine so thirty nine nine likes on a video of at least a one hundred views. The media number of us was nine hundred eighty one in that data set so that's pretty good when you think about it. It's you know the the folks who can get juicer getting the juice and that engagement rate is four point three nine percent which is astonishingly good so if you've got a hit <hes> it's gonna it's gonna deliver for at least in terms of engagement for instagram. We looked at instagram for brand pages. This crowd tangled and this was thirty one two thousand posts <hes> engagement there is a like or comment and that engagement for brands on paid posts was half a percent and <hes> for unpaid post. I was point four percent so the big takeaway there was that if you are if you've got the juice and you can make something happen on youtube at least in terms of engagement. It's you gotta have deliver ten x what instagram seems to be able to deliver these days yeah. That's crazy youtube so much more engaging way. We also have to shout out katie who won the analytics community contest you had asked everybody to place their bets back on tuesday to see who could hit that number and katie was closest at thirty one so she she has her finger on the pulse which that's totally expected of the ceo of the data science company to get on the market congrats to her. We'll have to get a a humana baseball baseball cap. I'll send up from the swag bag. Yeah i say if there are things that data points you would find useful and maybe not every week but you know may once a month to what happened on instagram or facebook for brand pages for b. two b. b. two c. <hes> let us know because a lot of this stuff is stuff that like okay how once the software is bill and it's running as ingesting data. It's not like a ten hour project just all the numbers. That's one of the reasons why we're doing it for a newsletter so defined i if there's something that you like oh gosh if only i could tell you how many clicks top performing headlines of the week were let us know and we'll see if it's feasible with my throat in the newsletter yeah and then i mean as far as actionable advice two hundred now. Is there any reason why someone would not start with youtube. Like why would you not start there as opposed you know i. It just seems like i will videos more work of course but i just think with ten x leverage. You'd videos gotta be an youtube. There's gotta be head of instagram yeah. You know it's interesting that people think of instagram is like we're all the people in conversation is but they forget that youtube is three things it is is a video platform but it is also a social network which people completely forget about <hes> until you read the comments. You realize most of humanity deserves. It's the second largest search engine on the planet. People forget that youtube busy search engine powered by google parent company and so in terms of your takeaways think think about the things that resonate on social because social network think about the things that people search for maybe do some predictive analytics on on what people are going to search for and then make make the video and put it up there and as long as it is useful or help all or entertaining. It's gonna do okay yeah run yeah and of course that's the phrase as you are. Your own worst critic then expunged youtube comments so that's when the world works these days exactly i would also. Let's say that if you're not cross pollinating you're missing an opportunity so one of the things that i do every week in my newsletter and i recommend everybody does in all of their social channels as well as let people know what else you like so schedule a bunch of tweets saying hey. I'm on lincoln here on facebook your arm on youtube here on instagram here. It doesn't have to be like every day but remind people that you are in more than one place and what they'll get if they go to places like if you subscribe to the youtube channel you'll get daily videos about this if subscribe to the blog you'll get this but that reminder will help. You build a little bit of insurance. If one platform just takes a nosedive facebook then you got a backup plan yeah yeah you're you're hedging your bets and spreading the audience out on multiple channels. That's definitely smart. Move to it to get you on track and keep you on track. I had a straight talking about twitter offering more context unavailable tweets deleted protected in muted. I thought that was just kind of interesting so you could kinda see what happened to the history of a tweet and i didn't have in the show notes but there was an interesting one last week i had seen about a very clear line between donald trump tweets i if view analyze the data there's the i._o._s. Tweets versus the ones that come from the android phone pretty obvious to see which one is the p._r. Team with the photographs in which one is the angry guy at night painfully obvious what's going on there which is kind of fun to see the data point that clearly what's going on. Oh totally you could actually it's interesting think of bunch of oats have done machine learning modelling with that content and when you use the two different language models you do get very different amish when you when you generate new tweets and things so it's ah that's true also of almost everybody unless you're the only person who has access to your twitter account if you've got if your corporation you're doing. You know you've got a p._r. Team liam an ad team in a social team and stuff. You can very very easily pick out whose voice who's right. I have some stuff about joost doing more podcast indexing a lot of stuff going on the ios tron. I have to catch up with that because there was an exploit that you had to patch and we had some weirdness with the the client site that we've been doing some stuff with we fix so i have to dig into that hopefully for next show. I'll have more going in on that also in the back pile. I had comments add. We talking about the general mills r._f._p. Which i think included hundred and twenty day terms as part of the deal just seems like the classic frog boiling beating on the vendor uh anything else surprise you out of that one the big one that a lot of agencies rightfully objected to is that anything you create for their pitch becomes. Was there intellectual property. So if you come up with a great idea they can take that idea and run with it and not pay you a dime which is a clean enter to have the intern right because you want the lowest value. All you ideas going into the pitch sitting sort of get ripped off. It's it's not a huge deal but that's one of those were the big agencies are like don't wanna touch it so they're gonna end up the oh. Someone will want that work because they want the logo on their powerpoint deck but it's definitely when you do stuff like that. You're not gonna get the best of the best yeah yeah you get what you pay for it. It's just funny. I had something in the town here. Somebody was talking about having a design contest for i am architectural stuff in the town and like oh yeah farmed out to people who are willing to do it for free. That's definitely definitely the working to get some good stuff with that. Our town ends up looking like willy wonka factory. I'll know where that came from. I would love for everybody who is a creative role in your company to print out. Mike lipton's quote hang everywhere in your office his great quote which i have to remind myself how frequently which is i would do this for free but i make you pay so you understand the value of what you're receiving yeah. We tend to forget that we love what we're doing and so you make it too easy for it to be sold cheaply and yeah and then hopefully you always get to that prime real estate where you need the price there air because you've got too many people interested in what you've got going on and he needs something to separate the demand and get them queued up so hopefully we can help you get to the point where you have to deal with that and in fact if you need help getting on task to get there you can accomplish more every day with omni focus.

"five billion dollar" Discussed on Marketing Over Coffee

"And good morning welcome to marketing over coffee. I'm john wall bresser ben and in the heart heard of the summer here. I just have to say facebook having to pay five billion dollars in fines for what has gone down. I don't know it's just amazing to me such a huge chunk of money and then the other thing that was insane. Was you just threw me this article about facebook looking at a brain interface where you could type with your mind. It's just which i can't make this stuff up. It's just yeah. I five billion dollars. I mean when you look at them. As a company is not that big a deal the thing thing that's interesting to me about the brain interface stuff is that if you've ever done or tried to do any voice recognition <hes> where you speak into an app but it transcribes mealtime you realize just how scattered and unfocused your speeches now. Try to imagine what would come out of your brain typing hyping wise if you're directly connected to thoughts because we know most people's minds mine included are not that focused so can you only imagine the stuff. It's gonna yeah. I mean not to geek out too much but like i always remember the character of troy on star trek. Who could read reminds. I was like oh my god. I never would wanna run into that. Can you imagine somebody that can read your mind as you walk in the room. You're just like it's just such a bag of disaster can't believe leave it would work there have been some actual toys as some star wars toys where you can use your mind control this or that and yet it seems seems more kind of like alternative interface of muscle control. You know it's more like controlling muscles around your head. It's not as if you're projecting your mind out there to do things so i don't know maybe we can get a test version of the i guess. As much as i think it's hilarious you know literally the tin foil hat crowd worrying about mind control but it still would be kinda cool to see if it works and how it works so we'll keep an eye on that yeah. I don't even know where to go with all right so related with the machines coming to take our jobs chase using a i to generate copy for ads so you know people have always said while operating will never go away in here's chase doing something on that this no surprise to you of course no matter what so ever so they're using a relatively straight form of natural language processing to build and test subject lines for a lot of their marketing and when you look at the way they're doing it. They're actually using vendors do it and and what it is at the vendors doing this is not cutting edge stuff. This is pretty well tests and stuff. That's probably about four or five years old right now but they're finding <unk> outperforming their humans so there's definitely a clear trend for what i would classify as relatively low value creative work being easily outsourced to a machine and what they're doing. This is the part of the fascinates me what they're doing again is is relatively low tech in the sense of it's it's. It's not a very advanced machine learning. It doesn't have to be for this use case but if you were ambitious enough if and and skilled enough you could take the idea of what they're doing and kick it up like a hundred notches with what's available on the market today so for example. If you were to take all the the library subject lines you have or or something very similar to that and feed it to something like opening is g._p. To you could do that like today generate some pretty incredible stuff. I was doing this recently with <hes> with g._p. To with <hes> twitter chat questions i took the all the questions from content chat and sam rush rush chattanooga all the major <hes> twitter chats and i fed that in an i said okay. I want you to generate new chat questions and it came up with a couple of thousand. They were really good like reading going. <hes> these are questions that i could legitimately somebody asking and you would get decent answers from them. Yet actually works in. It runs on it as far as this stuff being done. This is one of those things i've never met anyone. That's actually doing this work. That didn't hate to do it. You know this is not writing the the great american novel. This is some of the most painful copywriting you can do to staying within word count and trying to get on the mark so yeah i think most people will be very happy to build the roll this concept of and the other thing is you can spend more time focusing on you know what is actually the offer as opposed to the sixty five different ways to word it and bidding strategies reason other things in managing the software that does this which is all fulltime job. Now is some of the you know. Programmatic systems are so complicated yeah plenty more to do well. This is yeah. There's there's a lot going went on with that makes me think we should do like a like a special hang out of something like may at the next a conference. Were all at grab some folks head to the bar fire of g._p. To and and a libraries from kind of like show an example of just how easy it is to do because if you think about subject lines and things that are not like a huge data set you'd you'd get a couple of thousand of them just from any any major reputable data system and fire of g._p. To gluco lab and after by probably by the second round of drinks has on the work of oh well heck first week in september. I don't think there's anything going on that week. It'd be perfect time for so if you did not detect the note of sarcasm is just insane. There's inbound content marketing world. There's a big magenta has got their thing going on that same week so that all this crazy stuff going on so yeah a chance for us to catch up though if you're going to be at any of those shows be sure to give the album a lot going on there. Would we just have to passer moment to wanna think linked within marketing solutions for their support of marketing over coffee. What if you could reach the right professionals the right way imagine the best place for marketers place where you stand out against a backdrop of standup brands a place that has exactly the people.

This is every step of the way here has been fantastic. And it's worth standing up and cheering, but the house now has to go the Republicans still run the house. And that's why this has to be done now to put this off until February is absurd when Nancy Pelosi and the rest of her crowd run the place. It's it's impossible. Then. So they're going to try to pass an amendment five billion dollar amendment for border wall. Then it'll go to the turtle over to Mitch McConnell in the Senate. And then they deal with it. And then if it doesn't survive either place if this same Bill would know five billion dollars goes back to Trump. He's on record as having said is going to veto it.

"Looks like there may be. Possibility that they could exist pasta December thirty first because they need a serious amount of money. Yeah. So what's going on is that deslize a number of debt payments coming up? They have a little over two hundred million coming do here in the beginning of November. They have another nine hundred twenty million coming due at the end of March money actually has to be in the Bank by December thirty first for the agreements. So the issue here is that we last week. Saturday afternoon. We heard about the settlement with the SEC this Saturday afternoon. We've got a very interesting. So potentially breaking news from Charlie Gaspar, Reno he's one of the most experienced reporters on Wall Street who has worked at the Wall Street Journal is reporting from CNBC these days, he's at FOX business news by the ES spoken to a lot of the bankers that seem to be pitching test lie for how to deal with a situation where there are simply not going to be able to pay back. The outstanding debts that are coming do. So the idea would be that there would be willing to interviews. A net of five billion dollars into the company essentially, it would be a form of a short sale. You put it in the homeowner ship terms. So for example, today Tesla's about ten billion dollars worth of outstanding debt. They would actually find a way to refinance data put that under their own wings and then an ad. Other five billion dollars in fresh deck capital to the company, and the idea would be that they believe that. As of today, the company would be worth about ten billion dollars in a bankruptcy. And you add five billion dollars in fresh cash from top of that that basically means that the enterprise is would be worth fifteen billion. But that of course, leaves no money for the equity holders. So essentially the equity would be worth zero. That's why I'm saying it sounds a lot like short sale. The Bank takes over your house declare your bankrupt. They just take the house from you, basically. And then they have somebody coming to fix it up painted up renovate a few minor items. And then either put it on back on the market or are they or they lease it out. So that would be the proposal that he is describing in terms of his conversations with many of the banks that are allegedly here pitching attached lie as to how to just avoid a chapter seven bankruptcy. So that's part of this. Right. So what happened? Is that the convertible that comes at the end of March, which is nine hundred twenty million dollars. If the stock. Doc has traded for a certain period of time before March thirty first at an average price of higher than three hundred sixty dollars. Then you can settle that loan in by issuing stock. But if it hasn't traded at an average of three hundred and sixty dollars for a certain period of time leading up to that moment in time, then you actually have to cough up the cash and right now, of course, it's doctors at about one hundred dollars below that level. And so the company's looking like they're going to have to cough up the cash, it's nothing dramatically changes here in the next day. Handful the months so that is part of the problem here that is all integral to the difficulty that all the parties are trying to resolve here behind the scenes and. You know, we'll see here to what extent that his reporting on this issue is correct. And whether it is only one of many other types of proposals that are on the table somehow..

"Health business for five billion dollars and. Coast now finish digesting that aquisition. But this division was never going to get the valuation deserved as long as it was berry within a massive, one hundred and five billion dollar drug company. Now that along cousin independent entity, at least the reticent practice, he still owns eighty percent of the stock. They're focused on investing heavily in their fastest growing categories. Three quarters, the companies aren't de budget's going to companion, animal disease prevention companion, animals therapeutics, and what they call the future protein business meeting, yummy, chicken and fish. In theory, I like how this company looks, but what about the practice then you lied on the actual numbers. Here is a little rough because along coast financials are hopelessly entangled with you. I will. He's in the perspectives they flat out tell you that I quote it is impractical to estimate what are stand alone. Cost would have been for the stork periods presented end quote, I found that baffling I mean, but with that caveat mine, the numbers don't look that great. Lanka sales have pretty much been flat for the past three years, which is suppressing company that's got exposure to both the humans ation. Pets and the world's veracious appetite for after tight for protein in comparison wettest has high single digit sales growth, and I'd x. is consistent livered low, double digit growth, art. How about Rx when you get the gap number Ceuta speak a long, been losing money for the last three years on her just a basis that problem. Even those adjusted metrics have been all over the place, but investing is all about the future not to pass. So how things look for long going forward? I gotta tell you. Well, I liked it. They're investing companion, animals and the fish poultry segment of the livestock business also little worrisome. Why? Because the one area that along doesn't call out as growth categories. Actually, the largest business ruminants and swine, think pigs cows, goats, sheep, that division accounts for forty percent of their sales this year. It sounds like even the long coz not exactly enamoured of their core business. So where do I come down on this one? Give it a long search, fifty, percents. I trading put back. I just a hair over dollars. I think it all comes and evaluation. I liked it. This vetinary drug company is doubling down on the unionisation of pets and absolutely be buyer, no doubt about it came down the right level. So what is the right level? Okay. Before we talk about valuation need to reiterate that these are all back of the envelope calculations. We're still in the quiet period following the IPO meaning analysts who work for the investment banks that took a long co public can't come on for another four weeks. Normally value stocks, consensus earnings us. But there's no consensus here because there's no coverage. However, if we double along pro forma earnings from the first half of the year to get an annual number stock selling for about thirty six times this year's earnings, getting very rough calculation even. So if it's even little accurate along co is more expensive than the wettest that's puzzling. What is less than twenty nine times earnings and it's much cheaper though than either x at almost fifty seven times or any sort. Of course, I'd have scissors that valuation got wrapping growth. I don't think that the along Kovalev can really be justified unless the company stagnant revenue growth really starts picking up here. Maybe that'll happen. Maybe once the analysts don't rolling out coverage, expensive, see something I didn't see give the company's much higher estimates, make it stock. Look a heck of a lot cheaper. It's possible, but there's something else that worries me here. Alot Lewis stones, eighty percent of a long co and they're eventually going to tribute that stock to their own shareholders. When that happens early next year. Well, it could create some real volatility that you've got to be ready for it. So here's the bottom on as much as I liked corporate breakup in humans. Ation pets and and the rising popularity of chicken other proteins. I can't recommend Longo health right here..

"A million dollars a month and it was it was one of those things that i think today like over five billion dollar company i don't even think the company would be in business today if we hadn't if we hadn't really optimized that full customer journey rather than just just marketing channels you say at the standard value heard stick where we both sort of laugh at that but isn't part of the thinks spend a lot of time there too that they actually often confused marketing advertising and branding right right so yeah exactly if if if you define marketing in a way where you are where you're including product as part of that definition then i think growth hacking as kind of a term doesn't really matter that much it's it's it's not adding a whole lot of value it it might be a little bit more emphasis on a process of rapid experimentation but i most marketers aren't experimenting at quite the level that they should be but that that would be probably the only sort of minor knit on on the difference between marketing done the right way versus marketing the way that most people do it has this concept of hacking growth growth have marketing has it transcended the sort of tech marketing issue john like have you seen people deploy this like maybe a bad example large cpg or small mom and pop or do you really see the nuts and bolts of how you get velocity happened purely when it's sort of the best way i would explain to sort of like a digital product or service yeah i think the most obvious place for it is is a sassy product software is a subscription product where you if you can't retain customers in a subscription based business you're not gonna be able to grow that business and it becomes very obvious so that's leads people to manage the customer life cycle a lot more so that's where i think it most obvious where it applies but even l'oreal in in february they they brought a lot of their country managers to los angeles and silicon valley with a whole week of focus on learning growth hacking learning what it was all about so i think the interest is there i think that larger more stabbed companies are having a hard time actually applying it in their companies because of the way they're organized in in individual silos and super early stage company like when i was at dropbox less than ten employees much easier to bake it into the culture in the process from from the beginning but a lot harder when you're when you're trying to get disparate teams the work together across that customer journey to to experiment improve improve growth that's interesting so you're confident that that it works more organizational team not what it is that you're selling part of the thing that i got you got new book called hacking growth was it just felt to me as i was reading it and looking for the examples that when you shift out of that sort of sas silicon valley ephemeral digital thing that that's where the hurdle was but you seem to believe it's happens and the organization team yeah i think it's in both places so a company like l'oreal or any any company that works through distribution channel it's now you have not just across teams but across organizations across actual companies that are managing different parts of that that customer journey that becomes really hard but i think the i think for for a lot of companies it's just literally that customer journey sits in different silos in the business and what facebook is really the pioneer with with figuring out this cross functional growth team that manages experimentation across that full customer life cycle journey and i think there's there's a ton of power in that and one other piece with that is that they come down to a single metric of value metric that everyone in the organization is evaluating their efforts on how it impacts growth of that metric and so when you find a single success metric it helps to align teams a lot more as well so you have lori l or someone else looking at this you and i think both have similar life in terms of go in we speak do our key knows we're very excited i might be in a more mature world in terms of broad digital marketing but they're interested in it but against the deployment and the implementation like i've had this conversation with eric reese from the lean startup the organizations.
