Google Unit DeepMind Tried and Failed To Win AI Autonomy From Parent
"Back in twenty fourteen. Google bought a company. Called deep mind specializes in making advanced a it systems to mimic the way human brains work. It's an approach known. As deep learning now for years senior managers there had tried to negotiate more independence from the parent company. And now we report that last month. Google ended those talks. Permian basin broke the story for us. And she's here to talk about it. Parmi thanks for coming on the show. My pleasure so parmi. Let's talk about these negotiations over deep mind. You've been speaking with people close to this situation. What did you learn about what the people at deep mind wanted. so what. I learned from speaking to people who were familiar with what happened. Was that deep mind. Had been proposing for some time to google that they could have some measure of independence from the company and this went back actually quite a many years back to around the time of the acquisition so google bought deep mind in twenty fourteen for about five hundred million dollars and actually the year after that. Google restructured into alphabet. It became more of an umbrella company with so called bets that it was managing and that came up as kind of opportunity for deep mind to get a new measure of independence and it was from around that time onwards that deep minds founders started telling staff at the company that there was this possibility to become more independent from one of the reasons for doing that was relevant to deep mines long-term goal which is to create something called artificial general intelligence. Now you probably heard of artificial intelligence. Artificial general intelligence is like this next level of ai. Which is much much more humanlike. Ai right now is very good at doing things. Like nizing voices or a face or typing text for you but it can't do all the different things that the human brain can do. And that's what artificial general intelligence. The theory that it will be able to do that become almost sentient is almost as kind of science science fiction style. Way of looking at a i but the people at deep mind are seriously working on trying to build this. No one's done it yet. But they are they take it very seriously and they they call it solving intelligence and the view in the company of the founders was that hey if we actually built this should be controlled by a single corporate entity

It's it's i outta love it it's can we can agree. It's beautiful both. It's a corporate mausoleum. it's yeah grass. All right i'm ready to make an observation that you guys have clyde layer too low. The chiefs recognized And learned one of the most difficult ways a team can learn. The line needed to be addressed. They need protect their five hundred million dollar investment. first of all need to start making defenses. Guess what they're going to do more. They haven't added really any running back now. As of yet the chiefs made a first round investment in clyde edwards helaire. They haven't made any upgrades their defense. It seems the chiefs with the addition of long in tunisia. Now orlando brown. They're predicting mahomes and taking pressure off of their defense going to improve their run game. Good point also. Adam watched pulp fiction already and other good point. I'll try do that. But are you to heathrow you too. Low number one. She's fan on clyde edwards. Helaire am ranked. I thought that the the sentence. I really liked the most was the kansas city chiefs recognizing learn in one of the most difficult as a team can learn that they shouldn't have drafted a running back in the first route. You're right that. I have clyde twentieth. Twenty-first something like that are too low at Running back that like i. If get through the draft the first two days of draft without selecting a running back he will move up a little bit. But i'm i'm sorry. I've got an eighteenth npr. But i don't know why. I would rank him ahead of chris carson or james robinson or josh jacobs or david montgomery. There's there's that many good running backs and he's kind of right there on the border of the guys that i'm not sure if they're good running backs or not not sure if this is a good situation or not. They haven't added talent but they did. Bring back the guy who played more snaps than glide in the playoffs. Coming back from that injury ubale he looked was the guy. Yeah and it looked like like the fact that he came back at all from that injury was pretty surprising. He's totally did you say he was the guy in the super bowl. Item at running back was e- well they ran the ball four times in the first half but that i remember he hid has over probably immediately had a big run at the beginning of the second half looked pretty. Williams played more snaps in the rules. Will i mean maybe because they were trailing by so much but at half time they went right back to clyde edwards layer and he actually did some good things. I could be wrong. I i haven't a the number eleven running back. But there is like a a real glut between eleven and i don't know there's eleven and twenty in the rankings for me so the projections for me. So you know a touchdown here touchdown. There could move one guy up or down. But i kind of think he's going to have a pretty healthy role in the passing game..

Former Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky Signs One-Year Deal With Bills
"Announced earlier today former bears quarterback mitch trubisky signing a one year deal with the buffalo bills presumably to backup josh allen. There it is a two and a half million dollar deal with some incentives tied into it. That's injury presumably would be the other scenario. He gets beat out for the backup and he's the third. Is that one. maybe it gets cut. It's a there's a chance he'll be the backup. Let me ask you this question though. Because it's easy and it's if we're making fun of mitchell way or mitchell and that's worthy of being made fun of i think but not this. He's okay right you know. He's making more than a lot of hardworking people. You know literally do in a lifetime in this bad year but they are in the end of these players these reaching the pinnacle of their profession. And it's a billion dollar profession. They make money. They're supposed to make. I mean to me. The beauty of the nfl's rev share agreement. Is they're saying okay. The players contribute fifty percent the infrastructure. The all legacy to have the trademarks team. You know however you want to think about that fifty percent we take the money in. We divvied up and go. I mean to me that means that you can't even debate if collectively that you were jones but collectively with the players deserve their millions and millions and billions ultimately. They do that said we can. Because they're making so much money. We can have some fun with it. But i gotta be honest. I think that trubisky getting resigned by the bears was closer than we thought. Because i would make the following case. Let me ask you joan. What you would have made the odds. I don't we didn't do it at the time but right when this season let's say the regular season ended and those that remember obviously foles got her trubisky came back in play statistically significantly. Better at that point. I would have guessed about thirty percent chance. The trubisky would've had been rinse we signed in some significant way. Not like a five hundred million dollar deal but a real deal. I think the odds weren't worse than thirty percent. What would you have guessed. The is debate. I yeah i would have said probably about the same because that was a lot of the discussions i know in and around chicago that day. Did he play himself back into consideration for the twenty twenty one quarterback job and when i see him getting beat out for the job. I don't mean that. As a slight m i actually think. He's a much better quarterback than people give him credit for. I think for that kind of money if somebody comes in and outplays him buffalo's not gonna be tied to that contract like if he would have signed for seven or eight million
Purdue Pharma proposes $10 billion plan to come out of bankruptcy
"Pharma the maker of oxycontin filed. Its long bankruptcy plan just before midnight last night in a federal court right. So here's the plan. The company itself will be dissolved. A new organization will be created that would direct profits to help people who were hurt by the opioid epidemic but two dozen states came right out and they rejected that plan. They say it doesn't hold the sackler family which owns purdue pharma accountable. Let's bring bringing. Npr's addiction correspondent. Brian man Brian what does purdue pharma savings. This plan will do the company's president a he's a guy named steve miller and he says this new company that will be created from the ashes of purdue farmable essentially exist to benefit the public. The sackler will have no role or ownership going forward and over time. This new firm will generate hundreds of millions of dollars much of it from selling oxycontin which they say they can do ethically and safely. They'll also produce other medicines that will help people with opioid addiction. According to purdue pharma the total value over time To thousands of creditors will be billions of dollars and members of the sackler family also issued a statement last night. They said this plan offers. And i'm quoting here. An important step forward helping those who suffer from addiction. Okay but wire so many states unhappy about this a lot of reasons but a big complaint is from state attorney general most of them democrats who say that purdue pharma and its owners the sackler only offering up about five hundred million dollars right up front the rest of the cash payments including four point. Two billion dollars promised by the sackler themselves. All that money would be spread out in installments. Paid over most of the next decade that really angers critics like more healey. She's attorney general in massachusetts. What the are offering essentially as a way for the payments to be structured. That makes it convenient for them. They get to keep their billions and bank accounts and make money and use the to pay. You know the states out over time while they're oxycontin or chin keeps growly and there's another row bay for critics and it's affected a lot of the ten billion dollars in value. Promise by purdue pharma in this deal doesn't actually come in the form of cash that communities desperately need to pay for things like addiction programs in public health instead. This plan would provide low cost addiction treatment drugs like buprenorphine and lock zone which the new spin off company would make and sell at a discount. Then what happens to the sackler here. Because if the federal bankruptcy court approves this plan i mean they feel any personal thing at all. This is a really big question. After launching oxycontin and claiming it was safer than opioids other opioids the sackler and their company hauled in more than thirty dollars in revenue. Purdue pharma has since pleaded guilty twice to federal criminal charges for their marketing of opioids researchers say oxycontin contributed to this explosion of opioid addiction and death. Now the actors have agreed to give up control of their company. But some critics point out that purdue pharma was already sinking under the crush of all these lawsuits. So it's not clear how big a financial sacrifice that really is. Members of the family also added about a billion dollars to the earlier settlement offer. They made but in this deal they will keep most of their personal fortunes and they'll admit no

Molly Fletcher On How To Negotiate With Confidence And Ask For What You Want
"Today's feature molly fletcher was named the female. Germ aguire on cnn. She represented some of the biggest names in sports and she's negotiated or five hundred million dollars in contracts. She negotiated contracts from hall of fame. Baseball players to golfers to professional coaches. Like doc rivers. she's in featured an espn forbes. And of course sports illustrated. She's the author of five bestselling books including her latest one. The energy clock and she's here today to make sure you feel confident. The knicks negotiate anything in business and for many of us. You're negotiating everyday all day. What i love about her approach is that it's simple. It's to the point so it's easy to implement so when wanna pass an awesome alibaba back to wrap up today's episode and give my takeaways but for now tick away molly. Hi it's molly fletcher. Founder of game changer negotiation training and author a few bucks that one. I want to talk a little bit about today. A winners guide to negotiate him. I was a sports agent for almost twenty years and worked with some incredible hundreds of professional athletes coaches and broadcasters and so for almost two decades. I pretty much negotiated every day almost all day. And what is you know a pretty competitive environment like most of of our worlds. And so you know i. It's doing that for almost two decades. You begin to see a process that works. And i transitioned out of that business about ten years ago and now speak and write books and of course we have this training company game changer negotiation training. And and what. I've learned is that most people assume negotiation is really just reserved for certain jobs. Sports agents were lawyers are sales people or whatever but negotiation is increasingly. Part of everyone's job and and the reality is we must master the skill to be able to grow in business to be successful and continue to evolve in our own business careers. And you'll yes. You may or may not negotiate deals. But i would encourage you to sort of expand the thinking around the word negotiation and recognize that it's about negotiating resources and vendor contracts. It's about our time our energy. Who's on your team and not on your team. What projects you choose to take on or not take on you and then of course things. Yes like your package and the list goes on and on but to me. The opportunity to negotiate exists all day. You know it's all around us several opportunities every day irregardless of the roller regardless of the role that you're in so you know but but here's the problem. Most people aren't trained in negotiation and so they're laughed with kind of anecdotes and gut feelings to guide them through the negotiation process. And you know as a result. I think people lack confidence and leave negotiations feeling frustrated because maybe they didn't get what they want and what i wanna do is walk through the some of the mistakes that i often see. I'm gonna give you guys three today. Some of the most common mistakes. I see people make and and really what to do instead. I have a list of about five if you go to five negotiation mistakes dot com. There's there's more. But i'm breakdown three today so you know to me want number one is not knowing who you're negotiating with not knowing who you're negotiating with. Most people think and spend a lot of time thinking about how they show up and what matters most to them and not enough time worried about how the other side shows up and what matters most to to the other side and so you know i'll give you an example. I negotiated for decades with a general manager. And every time we did he was always really difficult to connect with he was just. It was tough. And i'm sure there are people listening that that have people in your life that you negotiate with it or tough to deal with it and this guy was that way and every time we'd have these conversations i just felt like we were missing each other and we were a little bit disconnected. And you know. In retrospect after doing the work that we do now and looking back what i realized as he came to the table kind of as a financial guy right. That was the way he showed up. He was only worried about the financials. All he cared about was what was his payroll. Look like right now and what he was going to have to pay my guy and what we were worried about. Ucs that matter tusk but matters even more at this stage in and this clients career in this athletes career was direction of the club. That you who who was going to be the manager of the club. I mean there was things like that that we were a little bit more worried about an and and so we kind of found ourselves disconnected particularly in this one particular negotiation that i remember so vividly and that was because he was showing up worried about one thing and we were showing up worried about another and and and when we can better prepare better understand what matters most to the person that we're negotiating with the more that we can drive connection and the truth is the more that we can connect the more that we can keep the conversation going at hopefully come to a resolution and what we've learned what we teach is that there's four styles negotiators. There's financial strategic logistical relational. So we all show up one of those four primary types all have a little bit of all of them but but no different than you didn't decide to be left or right handed. This is right or wrong. It's just maybe default sat up so you know the financial persons worried about money in the bottom line. The strategic is kind of worried about the long term benefits. The logistical worried really about terms and conditions. Right the relations worried about the people and so you probably can recognize in think. Yeah you know what. I'm i'm pretty much show up in one certain way and maybe spend some time thinking about some of the people that you most often negotiate with. And what what do you think. They're sort of common default mind says and so understanding how you show up in what your default if you will. Are you want one way or the other more one way or the other and then learning to listen for the things that matter. Most to the other person that can create Find kind of common ground inside of these conversations. Go back to what matters most to them but also be fully prepared to to navigate the conversation and adapt at times to drive connection based on the person you're negotiating with to me. The best negotiators are really curious problem solvers and they know who their negotiating with and they know what the other side values show spending time and energy getting clear on on how the other person shows how to adapt to drive connection. How you show up. Polygraphed dapitan dr connection. So i would encourage challenge to pull back and say you know what do you think your default setup as an and how you show up and then think about some of the people you negotiate with most commonly and how do they often show up negotiation mistake number. Two is not knowing what you want. I mean this crazy right but too. Many people go into negotiations without really being clear on what they want and the result is they ask for what they think they can get not for what they want and they end up with a deal. They didn't even want show. So we have to spend time and energy getting really really clear what we want. And you know your ass doesn't need to be a big issue. You consider everything that's on the table and and know what you would be happy getting in what you would be fine walking away from you. Ask for what you want. Not what you think you can get or what you what you think the other side will give and the only thing that i think is incredibly important you ask for what you want and given. Hopefully you've built a strong relationship in advance of your ask but is make your ask and then pause you know one of the mistakes people make because they they don't pause so ask for what you want and then sort of zip it right but the worst thing that that can happen is the other side says now but if you build a strong relationship it's okay they're not gonna walk away right. Think about no as maybe the start. Not the end of the negotiation if you go to gain changer. Three sixty dot com. We have a resource. There tab resource tab and there's a tool. They're called the e walk and it's not the star wars character but it's ewc and it stands for everything what we want whatever options and what are we willing to concede but you can go there. Download the tool. It's a deal preparation tool really and what will allow you to do. Is to get really clear on everything. That's in play. what do you want. What our actions. What are you willing to let go off.
Tahinis Restaurants Puts It's Entire Cash Reserves Into Bitcoin
"I think is this. Is chris coney speaking welcome back so you guys might have seen michael salo over the news media outlets recently. The ceo micro strategy You might be familiar with this already. So i'm not going to reiterate. The whole thing is about micro strategy put in most of that corporate cash reserves into bitcoin and then they make a business case for that so yes. We all familiar with that. We were just waiting for that first. Domino to start hitting and snowballing to other companies which is now happening. I was just browsing the old twitter as i do and chemicals this tweet from to heaney's restaurants who basically have just done the same thing and they have this tweet storms. I'm going to read out to you as to why they've done. What's microsoft's don as well now to heaney's restaurants. I've never headed them. But as far as i can tell. A canadian based company is a franchise of mediterranean restaurants. So that we go thus thus who. Who's talking here. So if you want to follow these guys check the tweets out. It's at the real to heaney's which ta h- h. I n i s to heaney's the real to heaney's that's the twitter handle so check this out. This is from the first of december. This was yesterday at five pm. Uk time so it says we converted our entire reserves to bitcoin in august. Twenty twenty. and since then we've been ridiculed and cold irresponsible fools in our community our reserves in dollah. Tam's doubled since then. Here's why we continue to buy bitcoin forever. Time for a threat. So festival says right that they did in august. Why is it took me this long to hear about it. Have you guys head about this already. Let me know if you already had about this book. This is the first. I've heard about it. And that's what august. September october november four five months ago. They did this. Maybe they just didn't say anything and didn't wanna say anything but it sounds like 'cause we've been ridiculed for it. Well they must've told somebody that follow is all the clients customers knew about it but i didn't say that we got so he goes the tweet storm the first thing they say is our current macroeconomic environment implies that there's going to be a ten to fifteen percent expansion twala monetary supply every year for the next three to five years in breakfast or more assets are going to inflate. Bitcoin is digital gold. And it's going to have the highest real yield because tween You can't pick any more of it old. The other investments are overvalued trades bonds our ethical stocks are grossly valued. Gold is a shitty says shitty store value that debases by two percent a year. Gold is a twenty twenty scam. You'll see governments and institutions pumping it to dump on retail investors who are misinformed because bitcoin is a thousand times better across all aspects. All these investments have some upside and more downside. In our opinion there is no way for the average person to get an etch. Bitcoin hasn't asymmetric proposition. You can get an edge here because it has a history that scared most people away. It hasn't been embraced by all the institutional community. That's changing fast. Now if you confront run this will this shift. Then you have an edge. It's being traditionally difficult to buy an old people can't pick up the phone and buy it if you go through the trouble of how to acquire insecure. It's that will give you an edge. It has all the technology upside of apple. Google facebook and amazon combined from a decade ago. And you saw what they did over the last decade. I get tweet namik says bitcoin is the so. That's a that's a combination. The fast fiber didn't i didn't segment in the b- go twenty six as they go on. Bitcoin is the successful successful digital monetary network. If you come into it right now you'll coming in at least so you're coming in at three hundred and fifty billion market cap. And it's unstoppable at this point so it makes sense to be at the ailey to this threat. Trend bowed pony trend. No threat as the price goes up. The value of the offering goes up because liquidity is the value proposition. This is an example of something where the higher the price the mo- value. We get the more people want to have it. And the more robust against this is not true with a stock as the price of a stock goes up it dilemma from its cash flow and it's p. price-to-earnings ratio goes from twenty to forty to sixty to a hundred as with many things as the price goes up. The risk gets higher with bitcoin. As the price goes up the gets lower. It's such a simple beautifully engineered. Winder that doesn't have all the competitive risks that so many other things have because it is so very simple is just twenty one million gold coins in cyberspace which divide all of the competitors. Bitcoin is the winner. They go on by one or a fraction of one and as people adopt the network value proposition increases as the technology gets better. The value proposition increases and his people like get more productive. They'll swap more cash flows into it and the value proposition increases. They go on to say and essential banks print more money. The value proposition increases again. That's just an elevator pitch. The bitcoin rabbit hole goes a lot deeper. If you're interested dilemma. Let us know we would like to thank the cyber hornets. The honey badges the huddle as the maximalists the developers and the good economists without them we would still be in the duck. Educate yourself look is when knowledge meets opportunity also followers for some amazing content. So they we got. They don't specify in this tweet stone. Exactly how much money into has millions of dollars they put into. Bitcoin as reserves micro strategy did actually say how much they put in. All this says in the fest we is. We've converted our entire reserves to bitcoin. So you know. One hundred percent of their reserves. So i suppose that means more doesn't it. What proportion of the company's assets will preserve the cash reserves. They put into bitcoin not the amount. 'cause if micro strategy said we've bought five hundred million dollars worth of bitcoin and that was only ten or twenty percent of their their reserves. It would make me less than putting all right. So i think that's a good metric. What proportion of the companies reserves not. How much money do they invest in it. Because that's more this objective risk that the company is taking rather than the objective value placed on the stack of money right so that we got restaurants the next company to put all of the business currency reserves into bitcoin. Who's going to be next. Who do you think's going to be next. Let me know.
All Your Genes Are Belong To Us
"The story of gene patenting kind of starts in the nineteen seventies when scientists figured out how to modify genes in a lab until nineteen eighty living. Things mostly couldn't be patented but that year the supreme court said i guess. These new modified genes are inventions. And pretty soon after that the patent office started granting patents not just on those modified genes but even on genes that scientists had just managed to isolate an extract from the body which started this huge genetic goldrush hundreds of new biotech companies popped up and suddenly the human genome started to look kind of like an uncharted surveyors map with hidden treasure. Worth millions of dollars just lurking out there in the genetic code by the early nineties. One of the biggest genetic treasures was the gene responsible for most cases of inherited breast and ovarian cancer the b. r. c. h. Gene and women with the brca gene have up to a seventy percent chance of getting breast cancer. Compared to about just ten percent for the general population. There was an enormous international race to find this gene and when myriad genetics was founded in one thousand nine hundred one winning the race to find the brca gene was a top priority geneticists. Sean teigen was one of the first people hired at myriad genetics. I had never heard of myriad. In fact i was roughly employee number. Ten sean and myriad hoped that if they could find this gene they could diagnose people at risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer and create tests and treatments for it nasa whereafter in the end is to add years to the lives of the people who buy you know unfortunate chance inherited a mutation in one of these genes. The trick to locating this gene is to identify families where breast cancer clusters. And then if you compare the dna of the people in those families who got cancer versus older people in the family who never got it. It will probably lead you to the gene and in the race to find this gene. Mary has a huge head. Start mostly because of its location in salt lake city. Utah has this comprehensive database of anyone who's developed cancer in the state. It is also home to the mormon church which famously keeps extensive genealogical records show. They're thinking when if just cross-referenced reference those two databases they'd have themselves a ready made pool of promising dna candidates and then they could get straight to mining for mutations sean and his team at myriad get to work. They are working around the clock all hands on deck. How did you guys think about what the stakes were for you. Guys you know in this race returned to arrive there. I i was merely an existential question for the company. There wasn't any doubt about that. It was like if we can find this than the company is going to be successful. And if we don't find it we're probably gonna shrivel up and go hundreds of other scientists around the world were also looking for this gene if myriad doesn't want to shrivel up and go away they have to get to it i after four long years of mining. Dna myriad finally strikes gold they find the mutated gene living on chromosome seventeen from what is now known to be base pair. Forty three million forty four thousand two hundred ninety five to base pair forty three million one hundred twenty five thousand three hundred and sixty four myriad extracts and isolates gene and almost immediately stakes its claim on it by filing a patent but profiting off of that patent turns out to be a whole other problem. There's just no good way to make a drug or treatment based on this gene so instead they focused solely on making a test that would tell people if they have the gene. Though even tasked will be hard to make money off of because brca is like say cova testing where you might get tested over and over or a drug the take every day you know the same person will use a particular patent drug again and again and again and again but they get the information that they are mutations carrier wanted to. They don't need to have that test again. It's done so. The prophet situation is different. Myriad cooks up a solution to this profit problem i. They will make the cadillac of tests the very best cancer gene test of all time and they will charge a premium for it then myriad starts using. Its patent to do what happens. Do best to create a monopoly if anyone else tries to make comprehensive diagnostic test based on their brca genes including some researchers myriad says kindly cease and desist last piece of the prophet puzzle. They get to work driving up demand. Genetic testing for breast cancer was relatively new thing. People didn't really know about it yet. So myriad launched a big marketing campaign aimed mostly at doctors and clinics. But then they test out something that hadn't really been done before with genetic testing breast cancer runs in my family. My mother my dad's sisters. I wondered if it would be inevitable. The trade marketing their test directly to consumers talk to your doctor or visit brac now dot com myriad says they invested around five hundred million dollars to develop and market the test and that they didn't even turn a profit until two thousand eight and says patenting. The gene was the key. That's the only way myriad could get the time and money needed to create what they deemed one of the most sophisticated genetic tests to date attest that gave more than a million people information about their risk for breast and ovarian cancer. But as you may remember not everyone saw myriads business model in the same positive light first of all that direct marketing to a broad swath of consumers less than ten percent of women are even good candidates for this test so there were concerns that myriad was encouraging all of these people to try to get a test that most of them don't even need that cost thousands of dollars before insurance and back at the. Aclu that lawyer. Chris hansen by the mid-2000s he'd spent a few years learning all about gene patenting and looking into the ways myriad was doing business and he had a few concerns of his own for example. Chris says people who did take myriads test might have been getting a false sense of security because his cadillac of tests. The original version of that test did not screen for several dangerous mutations in the gene which came to light after they'd gone to market so that even if you are a result back from myriad saying you're fine you weren't necessarily fine which you know. Science is a process of learning but once myriad realized its mistake and fix the test if customers wanted to take their new and improved. Test that identifies mutations that was gonna cost extra and chris says myriad police it's gene patents so aggressively that no other comprehensive. Brca test was available. So if you were worried that myriad had missed something. There was no way to get a second opinion myriad. Genetics was the only place in the country. You could go if you wanted to be tested other labs could could technically do be. Rca screening were not allowed to do so because of Myriads hat myriad told us. Look we only actually filed two lawsuits against our patent but scientists. We spoke with told us that myriad also sent out a ton of letters that threatened legal action which had basically the same effect of shutting down testing efforts and many scientists were already frustrated with myriad because the race define these genes in the first place had been largely collaborative among scientists around the world and yes myriad had found the gene i but they've done it with the help of everyone else's published work and then they used their patent rights to essentially claim testing for it all to themselves and because really only myriad could test for these genes only they could gather certain kinds of really valuable new data about inherited breast cancer they collected and years of data most of which they also didn't share with the rest of the breast cancer research community. They had this gigantic database of brca one jeans and the various variations of the brca jeans myriad refused to share that database with the scientific community. We spoke to the folks at myriad and they told us that they didn't want to share their genetic database with the broader scientific community out of a concern for patient privacy. They say the pricing of tests has always been proportionate to the costs of developing and bringing them to market and they say they're patent strategy was in line with others in the industry. But chris's concerns went. Far beyond myriads business model far beyond myriad used it's gene patents for him myriad was just a symptom of a much more fundamental issue. The real problem to chris was that genes could even be patented at all. The notion that some private company to own a part of my body and i can't look at it without paying a royalty to some private company seemed to me blindingly obviously a civilization and when chris hansen sees a civil liberties issue. He knows what to

Supreme Sells to VF Corp. Will it Sell Out?
"It's an entrepreneur's classic dilemma. Can we keep the culture that makes us unique and made a successful and still sell our company. Nowhere is this dilemma more stark. Then with underground street where companies supreme which recently announced that it selling to fashion conglomerate. Vhf corp you know. Vf the ten billion dollar company that owns nineteen brands including north face vans and timberland well in case she were doomed scrolling in miss the big news last week. Vf announced its deal to acquire supreme. For a couple billion dollars it's bs big acquisitions since it bought timberland and twenty eleven also for just over two billion dollars bloomberg reported. Now you've probably heard of supreme but just in case it's a streetwear company. It sells branded. T shirts hoodies hats and their fashion. Ain't cheap. The label launched with a single skateboard shop. In new york city in nineteen ninety-four the brainchild fashion designer. James jeb jeb. Lia will remain at the helm of the brand supreme at big by doing everything. Mass market brands don't do it. Amplified scarcity in a big way. Supreme spent almost nothing on marketing building. Up word of mouth instead. According to cnbc it opened brick and mortar stores. So slowly that. Today there are only twelve around the world and you couldn't just walk in to make a purchase. No the only way to get supreme. Fashion was to follow them on social media like a hawk waiting for them to announce random drops of merchandise. Today those drops our weekly getting a spot in line for the privilege of buying anything was intentionally almost impossible at the height of their popularity. Wannabe customers would camp out in tents or sleep on the street to get a spot in line. The next morning teens also commonly spent a couple of hundred dollars to purchase online bots that notified in the second clothing dropped but that notification guaranteed nothing products could be sold out in less than a minute that strategy in turn created hot resale market t shirts and hoodies that originally so for sixty to eighty dollars could fetch up to a thousand bucks on ebay and other resale sites. The supreme red and white brand became so magnetic that the company seemingly could sell just about anything by slapping the logo on it from kayaks to a pyrex measuring cup to a brick literally. You can still buy a supreme branded brick resale sites stock x. It'll set you back. One hundred and thirty dollars though according to cnbc and just for fun and unbranded brick currently cost sixty six cents. At lowe's the company also pursued its famous collapse strategy. Working in tandem with the f. Corpse vans timberland. North face to create supreme branded footwear and apparel partners included designers like gucci and louis vuitton even colgate toothpaste has a partnership with supreme for vf. The deal signals a strategic. Step forward in what it is called a transformation plan in recent years. Bef has begun. Divesting less edgy products. Like work. where it's off wrangler into its own company and is building on its prowess in athletic streetwear. Its stock price surged on the supreme announcement. Its biggest gain in more than thirty years according to bloomberg. But here's the really big question. Can supreme keep expanding by making its products. Hard to get under the umbrella of a fortune five hundred company with its eye on global growth. Bfce's the street where market is a fifty billion dollar opportunity. Supreme reportedly earned half a billion in revenues last year the f. plans to add new supreme stores around the world. The new york times asked kent supreme. Stay cool while going corporate seemingly. The answer is yes. After all one of the country's biggest private equity firms the carlyle group bought about half of supreme for five hundred million dollars in two thousand seventeen that deal prompted the same kinds of questions about authenticity but supreme continued to grow. Not everyone sees a smooth path forward. However matt powell is a senior industry advisory at retail consultancy npd group. He told the website high snow by the streetwear market is based on scarcity scarcity and growth are oppositional. Oh and one other challenge ahead for vs. It'll continue to allow supreme to do its famous collapse with partners outside the f- like for instance the f. rivals levi's and nike from the outside. That looks like letting your new spouse still collab- with other partners does it. Not and of course we all know how well that can work out in the end. Success will rest on whether the acquisition will juice revenues and profits for both partners. The f. is confident that supreme can become a billion dollar brand. If that is supreme can hang onto the cool rebellious image it's cultivated since his unassuming launch or than twenty five years ago

"More of apple supply chain may be leaving the Middle Kingdom. Apple insider says Peggy Tron. One of the Cupertino companies manufacturing partners is looking to build in Vietnam in a pretty big way. Like one billion dollars beg. Looking to target computing communication and consumer electronics. Plan, involves three phases. The first is a relatively small nineteen, million dollar initiative followed by four, hundred, eighty, one, million, dollar second-phase and five hundred, million dollars for a third phase all set to wrap up by twenty, twenty seven. Insider says Petron is the fourth of apple's manufacturing partners to make the move to Vietnam. Foxconn. And Tag all have manufacturing setup there. It's worth noting that while the apple manufacturer will be going to be at. Phnom. Petron won't necessarily be, making, anything for apple in Vietnam. That said the piece points out that apple has been encouraging suppliers to move production out of China to avoid costly tariffs.

NY Steve guild reported that Brody bandwagon does not own a pair of sweatpants what I mean what do you wear on weekends how do you not old a pair of sweatpants now I know why I don't trust you to make the right moves you don't own sweats Bruiser please give you ever heard of such a thing somebody does an old sweat pants what do you wear when you're lounging you wear jeans around the house I do not own sweats I mean I've heard rumors of guys who do that wear jeans to relax I I can't imagine that and here's my question to Brody have you ever own sweats like what did you wear sweats as a can you didn't like them who doesn't love sweatpants I compared first always I mean I am Swanson who do you all the time unless I have to be in something else but I mean what what the guy doesn't own a pair look it's all the you don't want to wear the sweats I can understand that I mean I probably overdo it with this weapon I'm more I get my fashion sometimes from Adam Sandler who by the way was on sixty minutes on Sunday was great to watch the same man who is to me the gold but anyway I mean I can understand if your band wagon and you don't be seen in public with sweat pants on okay maybe it's a bad look for the former agent turned GM well to not older pair of sweatpants what bands are co come in not to mention some of the stuff that he talks about with the actual ball club that is running saying there are more answers than questions with the Mets really I mean I look around see a lot of questions I got a question for you maybe the maybe you can answer this who's the closer on this team because because I don't see one another question if I may who's the center fielder on this team because I don't see an everyday center fielder on this team and I knew it was so predictable yet so disappointing you just knew what the Mets plan was going to be coming in this off season and that was going to be they're going to evaluate their team based on what they saw in the second half and just fix the bull pen thinking that that was the only problem wrong that is not the right way to go about things here I don't even mind letting we'll walk although I would trade them at the deadline last year but I don't mind not paying Wheeler a hundred eighty million like the Phillies did they do need to do something now and there you know Sello that's gonna be the answer maybe we'll get another arm of the pack in the pan or two they need a closer they need a center fielder really they need a second baseman probably shortstop as well and every day left fielder although says but is was running so maybe you have that to look forward to their to me there are a lot more questions than answers and unfortunately bandwagon and and the Mets think otherwise rob is in Brooklyn was abroad how you doing well good rob how are you man I'm right I just answer your questions earlier yes you are definitely going to live long enough to see a fifty million dollar play in baseball I mean it's crazy right fifty here at work within five years you said within five years that you have that move about the sixty year yeah in a five hundred million dollar guarantee courage and then see that within five to seven years well in my lifetime I can see billion well you forty is being.

B. S. almost none of them make money on football on average they lose at least two and a half million dollars attendance is down eleven percent over the last decade all different wine seem to give you examples of other schools of just so people can get engaged what are some of the other schools because I I'd really follow in FCS yeah yeah so the Ivy League is in there so Princeton Harvard Yale etcetera Buck Mel for them out of the west coast Portland Portland state eastern Washington down south Sam Houston state got hurt the cause state is that is the giant in that war I'm not saying this Saturday afternoon on ABC no you're not exactly so and and that's part of the problem right there there's no there's no massive media rights money which is you know the thing that drives a lot of these schools you're not selling out a hundred thousand seats like Michigan is there every day the money coming in is is almost nonexistent and you know Jackson to look at all the numbers and said we need to do this anymore and the man the myth out there that I think a lot of schools you know espouses that you you need to have a football team or a competitive football team to be recognizable to people around the country and I think I'm porch yeah when you reach a certain level of Lowell us enough level and in college football that's just not true was in your just chasing something that that is not it wasn't there a university not long ago that made this decision but then there was like massive outcry and they reversed the decision SO you a B. Alabama Birmingham they were at the top level so if I'm not I don't know if you would be but how about that thank you they they announced they were going to suspend their football team and then the the outpouring of you know support and financial I came back in the team actually a pretty good year this year so they're back and active I would imagine this is probably a more final decision if you're Jacksonville university than than you a B. but we'll see of Max it looks like Carolina Panthers owner David temper is on the verge of being approved for a new major league soccer team guess how much bar what do you think you'd pay I bet you it's going to be dirt cheap compared to other I'm glad you well compared to other teams you mean and others for yes okay three hundred million dollars see that that is cheap but we're seeing Meg Whitman buying into the F. C. Cincinnati at a five hundred million dollar valuation there are there are some other teens selling stakes at higher valuations than that were you were seeing them was joining some serious number club here and you're going to start needing owners like David temper who can cut the check if they want the franchise this is not ten million dollars anymore but we went to the Pocatello MLS team start and feel like we we aren't we're adding cities left and right here right this this would be the thirtieth MLS franchise they were they were stored fourteen I think five or six years ago the expansion there is is is huge and the expenses or what do you know when they bring the other league and that's how many teams like sixty five sixty five remember we've we've talked about this on the show before we back in two thousand seven winter on a jointly ten million dollars expansion fee I I just wanted a jungle L.

"The political this hour Sunland a crucial get flawed witness could abandon the impeachment probe his credibility is likely to come under fire yeah we'll get into that a little bit later this morning the US ambassador to the European Union has been cast as a potentially don't you know decisive witness to the allegations that president trump pressure the Ukraine's president to investigate his democratic rivals and possibly condition of four hundred million dollar package of military aid on his counterparts agreements we'll get into that someone sent to testify a little bit later today and I will join it in progress it is seven nineteen let's give them some business that this how about this pretty interesting story about Airbnb has into a reported five hundred million dollar deal to sponsor the Olympic Games until twenty twenty eight like a sun soaked two bedroom rental in Williamsburg this one promises a whole lot and a lot of people in the business were wondering can they deliver Airbnb will support the next five Olympics in Tokyo Beijing Paris Milan in Los Angeles with housing for visitors and workers yeah the storied Olympic village won't be replaced with Airbnb housing because being and all right Friskies Super athletes is not as fun as it sounds and now for the cities of so when it's a big win the of the international Olympic committee the IOC requires candidate cities to guaranteed forty thousand rooms to house the influx of visitors then if they are selected means billions of dollars spent on infrastructure projects to go unused once the games are over right now for twenty eighteen games local governments in South Korea eighteen billion dollars almost double the original projection per council of foreign relations Beijing and twenty eight cost forty five billion so she twenty fourteen fifty billion cities to get top you know quick tourism bows from hosting but they rarely actually are rarely cancel out those hi popping expenses Airbnb plans to lighten the load by marshalling in two hundred thousand combined host in five cities you know I can see this really working well I can see this being a hit because obviously when people go to it with the Olympics for example and events like that usually it's not like they're going for a couple days they're going to be there for you know some might go for the whole two weeks but most of the stage I can imagine her probably long stays in people want more of a home atmosphere I can imagine that because they're trying to save money the some of them aren't going to save money on food you know be able to cook at home and it's got more home atmosphere is more conducive now for Airbnb is prepping to go public next year here's here's here's what they get out of its one it was short but you know supporting the five biggest markets to it again Erin BB's brand out in front of tens of millions nightly as part of the world wide sponsorship of programming yeah along side you know the big boys coca Cola Ali Baba PNG but like race walking there's only a drama with Airbnb Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo alerted the IOC to the risk and consequences of working with Airbnb accompany Paris took legal action against this year for accusing it of of driving city rent higher wow well yeah okay it it's there's that but I think it all all in all it's probably gonna be hit I think the demand is going to be there and I think it's going to work well for them now what speaking of housing yeah at seven twenty two up from an Austin attorney is now trying to get Austin city council to reverse itself on zoning protest in the upcoming land development code rewrites wanna you know plans to zone the entire ship me explain up song I mean currently your home's probably residential housing but the city wants to up is on it change the zoning so that you other things can be built on that property yeah they're gonna is on it Becker gray his partner in Doug backer **** in a letter to mayor Steve Adler the Austin city council citing state law that says property owners can protesters zoning change that includes amendments repealed and others owning changes some vote to federally licensed Meryl this round one here we go they want to do a comprehensive rezoning well you can't replace the existing zoning with that repealing it simply means something news so to me the statue clearly applies yeah I know this is pretty interesting I mean some people want to fight the zoning change of their property that's obvious and according to Doug backer nobody's gonna have a chance to do that but if you rezone everything in the city or ninety percent of the city you don't have to give any notice and you don't have to have the three fourths majority that doesn't make sense to us and it's not fair we don't think it's fair and we don't think this legal it kind of takes a shot at your property right said does sectors with the firm gray backer sent that letter to the mayor demanding that the Saudi city council recognized state mandated protest right Sam said that they think they're acting within their legal rights in that there are authorities to support them but they haven't said what those of sorties are back this is the city doesn't believe that it and says it's a story that they they have the authority they believe so I guess the thinking is if if if ninety percent of the city is is up zone and they look at it as everybody's pretty much on the same playing field and so therefore there's no point in protesting because everybody has same problem so you should just suck it up like everybody else I guess thank you but it is it is not it is not fair I mean it's sort it's it's like what what is the point of of owning your own property you know you should have the right to to protest you should have the right to to protect that or at least to try to protect that and and it's yours it's your property show yeah the I'm I'm I'm with him that does not make a fair within reason I mean you should be able to do what you want with your property within reason within reason yeah I mean you you use you should watch a neighbor open up a slaughter house no no but rather that not happen sure and I hope no one in our neighborhoods thinking of that I can think of one never though that might be considering but but yeah I I I got that as far as protecting the the costs though the cost of living on that you should have a shot at it jump in.
