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

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.

"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.

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

Apple to produce millions of AirPods in Vietnam amid pandemic

"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. Apple's online store went live on the subcontinent today tech crunch says for the first time in more than twenty years since apple began its operations in India, the iphone maker has started selling its products directly to consumers in the world's second largest smartphone market. I don't WANNA get too far ahead of things but moves like this. Could make apple a profitable company?

"What do they actually do well we are a global franchise with forty seven physical centers United States with seven centers internationally in what we do is we fly in professional traders from all over the globe to teach you how to trade how to look at the financial markets from the point of view of supply and demand in the institutional order flow where is the possibility of the big banks in a big big banks big institutions accumulating stock this is about gathering stocks initials price action on a chart so we kind of do things a little different than the average investor out there because a lot of times the average investor has the buy and hold mentality and if we go back in and we start looking at charts and graphs that's what we do here at the academy it's all about pictures and I like to say charts don't white people doing when you understand how to identify the charts and look and identify where prices going on charts it's taking away the motion instead of listening to the story a lot of times people go out there and they listen to the guy at work in the list and the gal that works there by the water cooler near listening to story of why they should buy buying a stock or how the stock market's reacting to president trump's tweets or how the markets are reacting to the fed rates and they're also backing the rise of telling a story but what we do here at the academy is we should we teach the students value in charts what does that look like one price it's a specific spot what should we do man how should we do it so making the right decisions we use a thing called a set a stop an entry in a target we know we're going to enter into our stock or investment we know that if it goes against you were gonna get stopped out for a small loss and then we know we're going to do we're take profit profit around of always not a dirty word a lot of things people on apologize for taking profits you don't have to apologize for taking profits if you done it the right way so going into the market is we kind of help people go through the cycle. article side of it but then other questions why is online training academy growing so fast you know we started off in nineteen ninety seven and we started off as a trading floor where we had over about a hundred and eighty two traders trading approximately five hundred million dollars a day and that was a trading floor back in nineteen ninety seven so what that meant was you had to go to a spot where they had the high speed internet and then the billeted to do what to buy and sell stocks freely so once again there was a training for it's kind of like the old day trading mines that were people are drinking a lot of mountain dew there smoking cigarettes they're all stressed out there yelling and screaming they're making money there belong there counts up and they they're they're doing all these different avenues of trading and it became the error of the day trader well at our academy we realized that what they were doing and that trading floors they were teaching people how to do it because every time we have that many people together not everybody's doing really well at it so what do you do that is you put in a mentoring program inside that platform inside the trading room to teach the people that are struggling because you can be sitting next to the the best trainer in the world and yet you still might not be successful because you don't understand the rules you don't have the emotional side to it and you don't have the skill set to it so what they did is they put in a mentoring program inside this trading floor and then they realized over a period of time that guess what eventually people will have the ability to do this at home so then they took the top traders out their name they started off this academy over this okay let's put let's set up permanent facilities around the United States and let's walk people through the process of training investing the right way according to supply and demand and how online trading came it looks at it giving people a proper strategy to make the right decisions because if this was easy everybody would be doing it and the thing is if you have a strategy put into place what does that look like for instance we have a perfect situation years with John to have that took a class about five years ago when he came back in because once again we have lifetime retakes for free and the question you have to ask yourself is why was John so happy John came in any realized they didn't have the time because we're gonna be talking about time how much to. nine does this take for you to be successful at this how much time does it take you to trade and invest in John had the time for the first class and he went through it any sad and it went up but with them with another student name time which happens to be in our instructor so Tom in John sat in the same class five years ago Tom now is an instructor but Tom had one thing that John didn't have in John didn't have all the time to spend to become a day trader to become it intraday trader so once again John goes to work but then utilize the tools they utilize and supply and demand to manage his retirement account to watch is retirement account to grow faster so the value for you for the value for John was he watches investments grow faster so now if you have the opportunity to watch your investments grow faster and you don't take those deep dives in the markets that they have no city virtually you might have the possibility of retiring earlier or making better life choices for yourself so John did that and I was sitting in a class and he's very excited he said back you as I did a really good job of managing my retirement account of managing managing my four oh one K. account to give me the opportunity to come into the cat me a couple years earlier so now that I can get into the day trading salary can get into more of the income style of trading so what we have here at the cabin we have multiple versions of classes we've got a swing trading group we've got a long term proactive investor group was where a lot of people start listening to words for some it has five hundred thousand dollars or more in this pro active investor class is something that's actually good for the investor and that's what John was doing he was managing is four oh one K. his retirement accounts by utilizing supply demand on a longer time frame because he didn't have the time to do this so then we're all set any he watches investments grow faster in by managing investments it was worth the time for him to can now come in because he knows there is the opportunity to do what to do some day trading and do some income strategies so but he also the cool part was that he was in class with Tom and now toms the instructor in John remembers it but the. thing was Tom sold his business and Tom had time to invest his time into it to get to the trading status a lot faster so the question is you know how much time are you willing to give us and then the other point is what does that time give you back you know what's what is gonna do it you have the opportunity to avoid the major losses the rest of your life and then hopefully your retirement account will get to the to get to the number that you need faster because you're not taking these deep swings in the market so like we don't stop back in January of two we saw back in December two thousand eighteen. did you did the average investor lose money back in December of two thousand eighteen if you lost money what would have looked like if you did not lose that money what would that give you that would probably give you more time back because I do remember some people coming in and saying oh my gosh I'm retired right now or I might have to go back to work because I watch my portfolio drop so much in those markets well we're hitting all time highs were in the biggest Bull Run in stock market history in the question is what are you going to do about that so what our students receive is the value they receive is the opportunity to gain back all the time they want a clear answer to where they need to go and how to manage their investment so you know how much time do you need to learn to trade how much time do you need to manage your investments what is worth it well it's worth three hours or two to three hours of your time to come into the academy and register for one of our free three to two of two to three hour classes it depends on the size of the room we like to keep it to two hours sometimes it goes a little longer and pretending this this class this week you're going to receive a free kindle fire just pretending because we're going to spend money on you we're gonna vesting you because we know you're giving up some.

"Single day. The department of energy has now built, a five hundred million dollars super computer. It's called Aurora. It's the first American machine that can reach excess scale performance, that's a Quinton, calculations per second, it seven times faster than the most powerful system built today. It's a thousand times faster this computer than the computers, were ten years ago. It's going to let researchers create significantly more accurate simulations of phenomena such as drugged responses climate change the inner workings of combustion engines solar panels, weapons design, and code breaking the faster the computers can operate, the more complex the calculations are that they can solve and one of the key abilities. So these computers to operate so quickly is that the distance? That the electrons have to travel from one transistor to another shrinks, because clearly the closer, you are to someone the more quickly, you can communicate with them and it's true for humans, and it's also true for computer trips. Now MIT has invented a way to shrink any simple structure, and reduce it to one thousand it's original size. It's miniature rising technology that they call implosion fabrication, it can be applied to anything from developing smaller microscopes and cell phone lenses to creating tiny robots that can travel in your bloodstream robotic particles that seek out cancerous cells. Forget about microchips MIT says they can develop Nanno chips, techniques, simply requires a laser and an absorbent gel that you find in baby diapers. It's not real high tech. It's just high development historically. This is what's fascinating computers of used chips that made. Yes. No decisions called. Binary IBM's original PC back in the nineteen eighties. It had twenty nine thousand transistors your smartphone has more than four billion and had is it fit in the palm of your hand. When the IBM PC sat on a desktop. It's because they're shrinking the size of those transistors fitting, more and more onto smaller and smaller platforms. Now what's coming next in the world of computer technology instead of binary decisions where a computer is choosing between? Yes. No. They're moving to computers that can choose both or and in other words, you could be. Yes and no. At the same time, it's called quantum computing. And scientists believe that this is going to be the next level of massive innovation and computer technology, just give you an idea of how things are already being developed at Rice University. Scientists have developed tiny spheres. That can destroy BPA. That's a toxic chemical. And these tiny can catch and destroy it at UC San Diego. Researchers have measured blood pressure with a patch. That's the size of a postage stamp. What is all this translate to in the real world for you? And I have practical application how long will be before we see some of these nifty opportunities in our daily lives. Well, all of this is being used to provide artificial intelligence.

"And blue jeans, if you ever miss a show, and you want to go back and listen to something we said, we post everything there as well. As just the audio to if you don't feel like looking at me. But if if you do happen to catch the show on Facebook, and you want to ask a question there you can do so as well. So this this first case that we're going to start off with is. There was a obviously everyone remembers the college admission scandal that is a very recent thing. There is a mother who has just recently filed a five hundred million dollar lawsuit based on this emission scandal. And her son had a four point two GPA and wasn't admitted to. To some colleges, which I say that because I read this case, and I thought, oh, this is a little too vague, and she's probably going to lose. But she she said, I'm outraged in hurt because I felt that my son was denied access to college not because he failed to work and study hard enough, but because wealthy individuals felt that it was okay to lie cheat steal and bribe and she intends to go after every single person who's involved. Now, we've already had a couple of people who pleaded guilty in this college emission scandal. Which they if you're with the scandal, it was where a bunch of wealthy parents were paying a lot of money to some kind of middleman to get them into very prestigious schools or two high-ranking schools instead of them getting in on their own merit. It's an interesting, it's very interesting story in general, but the five hundred million dollar lawsuit. A how did you come up with that number be year? Probably not gonna win. I don't I don't think that you're gonna win because you're gonna have a really hard time proving that they were that her son was denied access to college. Because of these people getting in that, isn't that? I don't imagine she's going to be able to prove that very definitively and the five hundred million immediately. The judge is going to be on notice that this is probably just a little bit of a frivolous losses. So a couple of weeks ago when we talked about this collagen mission scandal, I told everyone we will keep you up today on things that are coming up with that. So a couple of people have have pleaded guilty. And now we have this five hundred million dollar lawsuit. I don't think we're going to hear the end of this. I think we're going to hear a little bit more about it. So remains to be seen exactly what will happen next. But I just thought that was very interesting one and the title is a mother filed the lawsuit. So I figured out. You know, what I figured this is a good thing to talk about start off the show, we have another mother's loss. This. Directly relates to discrimination possible discrimination pregnancy discrimination too. So. Amazon has fired seven pregnant women and is now facing lawsuits. So if you see this is what I'd like to know is anyone out there who's listening. Have you do know someone who's worked for an Masan or do you work for Amazon yourself because I've heard other really bad things about Amazon. So if you want to chime in one eight hundred seven fifty K F and B one eight hundred seven sixty five three six to find this very interesting because Amazon is one of the the wealthiest companies in the world. It's the the one of the biggest companies Jeff Bezos, he is the richest man, but not for too long because he got a divorce. And now he has to give out a lot of money to his wife because obviously they're getting divorced, and they didn't have pre-nup, which is a whole another topic. But anyways, I've heard pretty bad things about Amazon, and this is probably how you get to be number one. This is how you get to be such a big companies that he kinda don't treat your employees that great. And same thing goes for apple ever members. Apple had the the suicide nets in their factories in China. Because people would would go crazy making these little phones for all of us. So I know I'm going to little bit off topic there, but it's kind of related because this is. It's a pretty shocking allegation Beverly rosellas found out she was pregnant this past October. And she worked at Amazon's Golden State fulfillment center in San Bernardino, during her ten hour shift as a tote auditor should scan items and Philip the bag and then sent him onto a next person. So already the the work isn't like labor intensive as it is. But she alleges that her bosses hassled her about how much time she was taking use the bathroom and how our work pace slow during her pregnancy. Well, I think we all understand that someone who is pregnant doesn't have the same abilities as someone who is not. That's just kind of common sense. And obviously, you don't wanna hurt the baby. So you can't work very strenuously or too hard to in cause potential damage or harm. So nearly after a week after cyber Monday cyber Monday, anyone is unaware is the day. The Monday after black Friday so few days after thanksgiving where the biggest deals online, but. A week after cyber Monday rush in November Amazon fired results after two years of employment, and she was making about fifteen dollars an hour, and she's now suing Amazon claiming she was discriminated against because of her pregnancy. And this case actually has similarities to six other lawsuits that were filed against Amazon who were warehouse workers of the last eight years. So one of the things you need to do if you can't necessarily prove exactly the discrimination or the intent of discrimination. If you prove a pattern that can substitute. So that's a little bit of a legal tidbit right there. But. Amazon denied the discrimination against the pregnant women and six cases were settled out of court cases were all based around too many bathroom breaks long hours on their feet. According to the lawsuits Amazon workers were only given thirty minutes a day for a ten hour shift for bathrooms. So that's about three minutes what per hour or so. And I know if you know someone who's been pregnant or I've been pregnant yourself, I think you would attest to the fact that it's you have to go the bathroom more. You have another person inside of you. It's kind of I don't know. I think that they need to be a little bit more understanding, and yes work, obviously needs to get done. But if they can't fulfill their job duties that they had before maybe transfer them to something else. That that would become insensitive. And this has happened six times before how Amazon not having meetings about this. And hey, this is what we need to do in this type of situation one eight hundred seven sixty cave and be one eight hundred seven sixty five three six two if you work for John let me know I want to hear because I've heard bad things. I've heard some. Discrimination and unsafe and the not great working conditions. So if you can personally tested, this I would really like to hear from you. But anyways, back to the lawsuit in two thousand fifteen one of the lawsuits said that amber sergeant told her bosses that the doctors warned against climbing ladders lifting anything weighing more than twenty pounds, probably pretty hard. If she's working in a warehouse. She claims that ams up her on a working freeze until they can make proper changes and told her to wait for a call. She must have gotten lost in the shuffle. Because she claims she didn't get paid for more than a month in every time. She called her managers told her to keep on waiting. She returned December of that year and found that she was in the same department required to do everything that our doctor said she couldn't do. And then she was filed fired a month later. And then there was another one of the suits to Trudy Martinez. She worked at a fulfillment center in Florence New Jersey and had the flu wall. Pregnant in January seventeen so Martinez went to the emergency room where doctors told her that they were having difficulties detecting her baby's heart rate. She was advised to take three days off of work to rest and lo and behold, according to her lawsuit and Amazon HR director told the company does not accept doctor's notes and fired her four days later, so they probably said that it was an unexcused absence or no show. No caller, or some kind of reason that that is pretty agrees. If he asked me, how can you how can you be so kind of cold to someone where you you allow them or they're working as a pregnant person, you know, that they're pregnant you have notice of this. And then when they go to the doctor because they had the flu do they not accept doctor's notes from anybody. That's ridiculous or do people not get sick and M's on. I know they have a bunch of robots. They don't have a bunch of robot workers. That's for sure. So I find. And that to be pretty agreed. And that's probably why these suits a lot of them were settled out of court because Amazon new they're gonna lose. I would love to know how much they actually shelled out for this. Because you when you have something in law, you can receive punitive damages and punitive damages are a means to punish big companies for wrong, flax or intentional wrong, flax, and they keep on doing this in a lawsuit. They can usually think punitive damages are trouble three times. So someone was awarded a couple of million dollars. Well, they could say what triple that just to just to punish Amazon because of their wrongful acts that might be that might be the case in this scenario to six times over they've already paid out. So obviously, they're not learning their lesson and upper management is just who knows what they're thinking. So there was one more to that. We that I found that Britney Hagman told her bosses she was. Pregnant November sixteen offering a note saying that she couldn't lift heavy objects run up and down stairs. She still had to do these duties and was fired two months later after calling in sick because of the high fever, so this obviously this this shows a pattern and the pregnancy Discrimination Act might come into play here. And I am not a labor law attorney, but I've been doing a little bit of reading on this. And I I think that they're going to have a hard time defending their actions, Amazon, they're they're definitely acting in their own self interests, not acting on their employees or their employees interest. And I think that this is not gonna look good for him this this lawsuit probably won't hurt the stock, but it's going to hurt the company, and how many people want to keep on shopping with Amazon if they know they treat.

"Call the Colonel Colonel Sanders did an interview this morning. And once again, he was not asked about the cost of Medicare for all where does the money come. From simply says that we have twice the cost of other developed nations when it comes to medical care and treatment, and the reason that is because the American consumer pays for all the miracle drugs and pharmaceuticals all the research and development on new medical procedures and the rest of the world cherry picks, the knowledge of our medical professionals, and researchers than us that generally no cost the reason our cost or higher is because we fund all the research and development for brand new pharmaceuticals that in the long, run were cure Alzheimer's, thank care of cancer cancer. Now in many forms is not a death sentence because the American consumer funded research into cancer. We have wonderful pharmaceuticals that the rest of the world takes advantage of. But the American consumers the one who funds the nine out of ten farm. Calls at a cost of five hundred million dollars each that do not come to market. So the one that does hit the market is very expensive. And I don't like that. I wish the western Europeans, and some Asians would take up the idea of our day when it comes to pharmaceutical there's very little research done all over the world all the research is right here in America. So we fund all that and the cost and the form of higher prices. But Colonel Sanders is not asked the cost thought to be three trillion dollars a year, which is three fourths of the federal budget every year. Plus, it would put out of work. There's at least one to one and a half million Americans with very good high paying jobs with good benefits working in the medical industry of one type or another millions. In fact, the great majority of Americans have private insurance like it instead of governmental run system like the via your Medicaid, which you want to be on Medicaid tater. Would you like to be on Medicaid a government program for medical care? Hell, no. I don't want to be on Medicaid. I don't get as. Much as good medical care as I get right now. Would you like to be betrayed the VA your entire life and get in line for that? Nobody would that's the system that Colonel Sanders is advocating for the rest of us. Let's all go and Medicaid together. What do you think? Do you think anybody over the age ages sixty or sixty five would have a knee replacement the hip replacement? Bill Cunningham would have a valve replacement. The government would say when the money we can't afford it. They would tell what would be covered. What would not be covered? It would put out of work literally millions of people we'd have terrible healthcare that would be no pharmaceutical discoveries or medical procedures. Taber trans catheter valve replacement that I had thirty days ago would not exist except for medical research because of the profit motive if there's a motive to create and Alzheimer drug that takes care of that ravaging. Terrible disease has got to be discovered, by brilliant. Scientists working on the on the problem and not been discovered by government bureaucrat into building in Washington DC. The reason cancer is largely survivable now is because the medical research based upon the profit motive the best and the brightest wanna go into that field because there's money in it. You can't take away the profit motive. But Bernie Sanders says get rid of all that let the government handle it. Would you want to be on Medicaid or being the private insurance system? You're in today. The answer is obvious. Nobody wants to be on Medicaid doesn't work. It's terrible bad medical care. He wants to take good medical care that most of us have and make it all bad and give free medical care. To legals to those not in this country when they shouldn't be here at all. He does not discriminate between citizens and non-citizens. Do you want to take care of the health care of all Doorns at your cost? The reason our premiums are high is because we're paying for thirty five million Americans on Medicaid that don't pay for also paying for all the people getting medical care from different foreign countries that they shouldn't be here in the first place. That's why our premiums are high has anyone asked Colonel Sanders that question..

"Seven hundred mil because people don't care about the model three now. I personally the model three is. I think it's a good looking car both inside and out. But and it goes from anywhere from I think the basis forty two, and if you get all the options, it's like sixty three I think. But what's really interesting is? There's a lot of competition out there right now. I mean, I've I saw this electric vehicle being made by Porsche. And I'm a sucker for a Porsche. And I'm thinking, okay. That's that's a pretty cool car Ford right now Ford is investing five hundred million dollars in an electric truck startup called Riviera now Trump is Trump Ford is already committed eleven billion dollars eleven billion. Ford is already committed eleven billion dollars to electric vehicles. But they're partnering with Riviera because it's this just proves how difficult difficult. It is to do this and do this profitably, and fiscally responsibly Ford is partnering with a startup in order to do this. And they're investing five hundred million dollars in this electric truck startup, so ribian they're doing a pickup truck in an SUV, and they're gonna start at about sixty eight thousand dollars each. So there's just so much competition in that space, and you know, some of these manufacturers have deeper pockets. They can weather financial. They can weather the financial costs much easier. They've got the manufacturing the ability to expand. And then they've got something else that tesla doesn't have which I think is. Is really kind of interesting. When I go to let's say, just take take the car, you drive whatever that car, maybe. With my cars. I can take them down the street about about within a mile of my house. I can take them to a shop where they can be worked on for anything. Right. He made a Joe's auto body, and they can figure it out. I go to glens go. We're talking body. I'm talking for you know, the engine. I'm talking about all the stuff Glenn can fix anything. Right. Right. I can take any one of my cars to a dealership the dealership's by large. Now are so well equipped, you know, back in the old days, you go to an oil change your dealership it take all day nowadays. It's like, boom, boom that get you in and out for anything because the competition is such with tesla. What are you gotta do? Where's the tesla service? Where's the tesla service operation? I mean, if you're in Wyoming. I don't know where you gotta take that car to get it fixed. So there in lies another prop. Tesla. Also, they don't even have they don't even have. Stores to buy the vehicles any longer. Everything's done online. So some might say that's the future. But it's not the future for the other manufacturers at least just yet. So interesting thoughts on case Afo. Let's go ahead. Go to fill in San Mateo. Phil, thanks for joining us. You want to pop up on this topic? Thanks for calling. Yeah. I think about all of this is everybody should look up the stock called race, which is. Ferrari, and I bought it in when it was right around. When I started about twenty five thirty dollars a share now two hundred thirty eight. Okay. Probably free half years later. It's got a nine point two five, and it's real car. Not a phony one that's subsidized by the government. Thank you. There's our stock tip of the day race. I love it. I love it. Man, I'm looking at this poor electric vehicle. That's the they're calling. Tesla rival the it's the Porsche mission E has the equivalent of six hundred horsepower, it is so cool looking. I'm a I'm a I'm a big sucker for the Porsche. And I think that the there's just there's so much competition. Now, there's some of these manufacturers that are coming out with easy cars, and we'll just have to see what happens here nothing against any view that have tesla fits the car. You like you go do your thing. I'm I'm fine with it. Nothing gets you guys at work for tesla. Because they hear from me all the time you got a job and it's a good job for right now. But.

"Biggest debt burdens. This comes after Qatar pledged to buy five hundred million dollars in government bonds last month more with emerging markets team leader, Donald. Initially after the cutter commitment, and the cutout pledge the thinking in the feeling in the market was this story can now be put aside the yields are improving, but now it's back up on the radar and the need more money is that right? Oh, absolutely. They could they they could use all the money that they could get because what they need is more time. So what we're finding right now is they're trying to avoid a immediate crisis. They wanna be able to have the time in order to implement the reforms that everyone knows Lebanon needs to implement the central Bank governor has been at the at the helm or and his and his in his role as crews position for quite some time. He's seen these crises or these periods of volatility over and over again, and sort of long drawn-out cycles. But even though he does call for a plan and a clear guidance from the government, there is still a lack of a plan that maybe makes the call for more funds a lot more difficult that is actually a very important point. Because we have seen Lebanon in these points of crisis. Of course, we haven't seen it this bad. What people really want to know is. Okay. You have these reforms, but how are you going to implement them? Because in Lebanon, we have seen basic issues that haven't been resolved because of the underlying disagreements among politicians. So where's the story likely to go next? So we always try to get a bit of a bit of a sense of how this could develop by clearly investors are alarmed what's going to be the next benchmark. I mean, judging by the reaction in the bond market yesterday. Investors are obviously seeing some sort of comfort from this. They also got comfort from the statement by cutter. And of course, Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia followed through with its own statements. However, even though they know that there's going to be support from Lebanon's allies, they are very cautious about. Increasing their exposure to Lebanese debt that I thank you very much. For those insights, that's Bloomberg emerging markets teen leader Donald balti- coming up next Middle East markets have had a great start to the year.

"Firmly lodged in your backside. Yeah. That's. What this is about. That's this is all about. I mean last night. I was I was looking online. We know where we always scour for for stories and everything, and you know, Democrats they funded a wall a tutored eighty seven mile wall in Jordan last year. Yeah. Democrats did this now GOP did it too. But we're fine with walls two hundred seventy four miles of Jordan on the Jordan Iraq border. This was turned eighty seven. Seventy four. That's this is according to two hundred something miles long. Yeah. Okay. It's almost three hundred miles. Yeah. And we paid for this board does American taxpayers five hundred million dollars. Yeah. That's fine with so Democrats are fine with walls in Jordan. What do they think those walls are going to do? And why are they not immoral? They're keeping jihad right? That's what they're saying. They want to protect those people. So they're fine with using our money to protect people in other countries and walls are not immoral and other countries, and they're fine with taking our tax money and paying for those walls. But then all of a sudden it's immoral when it's for us when is for our country. That's immoral. I don't get it. It's a crock of crap. Is what it is. It's all about Trump. It's all about trying to that right now. Mexico is busy like sending more police more military to its southern border. Because there's another caravan right now fifteen thousand more people from Honduras, and wherever trying to come up, and you know, why? And they're they're building up their southern border. And no democrat is criticizing you know, why because it's not manufactured. That's actually what you're talking about this. It's the no one wants to his not manufactured. But it's it's amazing to me that other country. We're all about other countries protecting their border course, we so we send the money to to for Jordan. We were fine with Mexico doing what it needs to do to Tunisia. There was another one, Tunisia. Why are we not doing this for ourselves because they hate Trump? It's all about hating, whatever he wants to do all of a sudden, what's immoral? Totally immoral really Nancy because you're full of crap and so much other stuff like chemicals. Yeah. And like something's in her mouth. Yeah. She's gotta spit that out. Here's the thing. If somebody needs to ask them shocking Nancy about this about the wall and Jordan that was totally. I dunno. I guess moral that was fine. And they threw money at it. Yeah. Why isn't a CASA asking about that? Oh cousin. Not gonna ask about. I not because they're not real reporters. He's going to be like how Stompie was Trump when he left you're meeting in the situation room? Did he like stop extra loud? Take all the candy back because they're too busy providing cover for these ya. His so Chuck Schumer can get on the air and say he threw a tantrum. It wasn't a tantrum. I mean, he just left a meeting that was completely unproductive and made out to be from the moment. He stepped in the room good. They were like we will not give you anything that you want. And he said goodbye because business people do is this a wasting my time, it's a waste of my time. Also, I don't know if he said Bye-bye or bub by not clear on that. I don't know if we've got confirmation on whether it was by buyer buys is getting so ridiculous. Did you see by the way, this Email that we got from Janet Murphy who gave permission this morning for me to share this Email because she as a good citizen. Does she she called Pelosi's office to make her thoughts known? She used to be able to do this. Well, she did it. But here's what happened. So she said, and I'm quoting her Email. I called Pelosi's office guy answered speaker's office. I had a very courteous voice. I said hi just wanted to give my two cents about the border wall. I want it very much. I was prepared to say. But more speakers office said you can want all you want. You aren't going to get a single thing. Goodbye. He hung up. I was stunned. I have called congress people so many times over the years, both my representatives and others. Those I agreed and disagreed with. And have never heard anything like this. I called Susan Brooks is office and told them they confirmed the speakers offices. Everyone's office house of the people and everyone should be treated courteously can still hear that angry voice in my head. I mean, really is it everybody's office. I mean, do we really feel that way? Well, clearly not. Yeah. I mean, that's the tone that you're gonna get from Pelosi stabbed. Do you really think that Pelosi represents, you know? Yeah. She doesn't represent you. I mean that was that. Well, that's just unbelievable. And by the way, we've got you know, as as we mentioned there's this additional caravan forming, right? This isn't over there continuing to calm are they gonna demand fifty grand to start businesses. Back in their home country. I mean, I can't believe Democrats aren't writing bills saying that we need to do that. Yeah. So border patrol agents apprehended twenty seven thousand five hundred eighteen members of family units in December. This is the highest monthly total on record. So CNN was just showing a graphic on the TV in our studios saying look over time, you know, like since the year two thousand the people that have been apprehended has gone steadily down. So this is a totally made up problem. Yeah. If you see pictures this people, I'm surprised, invasion, manufactured. It's just. Yeah. This people are just they're they're they're Photoshop. Yeah. They must be photos. Well, you know, Trump's going to the border today. And he's there's going to be camera crews, and I hope that there's some good footage taken some good interviews shot of border patrol people who are saying we are here where it matters where it's I, you know, first hand knowledge of what's going on. This is what the American people need to. I really want Republicans are Republican. I want our. So representatives Republicans out there to start asking questions about you know, walls like the one in Jordan. I want them to start asking these questions. This is where I get really irritated with Republicans. Yeah. You know, because wherever here I'm like, but but we wanna wall. But but but okay. Well, then start asking these questions. Why is it that? It's okay for them to to say, okay to a wall, and Jordan, Tunisia and places like that. But yet, it's we just sit back. When Nancy Pelosi says wells are immoral their immoral. Hold on the meat you something in my mouth for ten minutes. Somebody needs to call these people out, and it can't just be us right on the air, and has to be people that Trump should say this. He should say this stuff. And why is it? Call them out. Everybody needs to call them out. We need to get better at this stuff. Don't just sit back call them out, so irritated. I mean, you're going to get somebody route on the phone when you do, but just FYI you should still do it. Call him out so over this also bays us. We know. There's a big story about him. We should talk about. Jeremy talking to my basis Mukasa all sorts of stuff about New York City in their health plans. And I'm just you know, we have so much stuff going on today. So you guys.
