This is four purchases of fifty dollars or more and then those customers can if they want split. Those purchases up into smaller monthly installments shares of affirm.

I'm sure there are a bunch of things that go into a stock spiked like this. But ultimately that's where i start with this like. How good is this for a firm. Well i mean it is really. It's very important news. I mean this isn't something that results in immediate tangible financial impact right. I mean there is still okay. Show me that this actually is gonna work. Show me the money so to speak. But for a business in a firm which generated around seven hundred fifty million dollars essentially in revenue over the last twelve months. It's a big deal in part of the part of the concern with firming. There'd been a couple of things with a firm that if you know they've been worth worth discussing a little bit right. I mean we saw the recent acquisition with school with the square buying after pay to get that presence into the buy now pay later and that's what a firm is known for two right. Buy now pay later in. The criticism has been that it more or less is a feature in not necessarily a business on its own

Major disagreements over the next decade will worsen so off forty four percent. People say it's gonna get worse. That's up five percent from a year ago. So i hope i think they're probably right now boy so yesterday james carville democratic strategist going way back. And he's old. I mean he. He helped bill clinton get elected ninety. Two which is now dang near thirty years ago. Well there's thirty years ago for the president's award so he's an old man but he did in an interview yesterday day with axios and And had some interesting stuff to say. It's hard to talk to anybody today. I won't do the the whole thing in his. Oh come on. He said it's hard to talk to anybody today. And i talked to lots of people democratic party. Who don't say this but they don't want to say it out loud that there's too much woke ism because get clobbered or cancelled. So he's saying all everybody the top noses the just keeping their mouths shut Honestly if we're just talking about biden it's difficult to find something to complain about. His biggest attribute that he's not into faculty lounge politics. And the interviewer. Sean ailing of. I'm sorry it's vox. That did this of. Vox said what's faculty lounge politics carcasses. You ever get the sense that people in faculty lounges and fancy. Colleges use a different language and ordinary people.

I don't know anyone who lives in a community of color. I know lots of people that are black and white and brown who live in neighborhoods any any and the agreement outside of politicians who ever uses terms like that. There's nothing wrong with these phrases but this is not how people talk. This is not how voters talk and doing it anyway. A signal that you're talking one language and the people that you want to vote for your speak another language. This stuff is harmless in one sense but in another sense. It's really not sean. Ailing ask is the problem. The language or the fact that there are lots of voters who just don't want to hear about race and racial injustice. Well we have to talk about race. James carville says we should talk about racial injustice. What i'm saying is we need to do without using jargon language that's unrecognizable the most people including the most people this to do too cool for school s doesn't work and we need to stop it and i like this season We gotta quit. Saying republicans are calling his socialists. Anyway so we might as well run out out and out socialist..

Sixers are hawks bucks forty four percent the nats down twenty four percent. In second place yeah. I just don't know the severity of chris paul and sometimes when you suffered a sprained ankle it doesn't feel as bad when you sprain it and then starts to swell and then when you're not able to be walking on it then that's where you start to get that pain. I don't know he was in a walking boot. Kyri was after the game. But i i don't know he's got two days to try to rehab that but that is an injury that won't go away not this year during the postseason and the same thing with james harden not gonna go away we know that joel embiid is gonna need surgery on his knee net in the off season. That's not going away either. This is this is a battle of attrition. you look at the lakers. It wasn't a question of if but when one of the two was going to get hurt and it turned out to be anthony davis and that costs them being healthy trying to stay healthy. How many of your players are healthy. If the milwaukee bucks can beat brooklyn nets then they're going to be changes in milwaukee. You can pretty much guarantee that and that usually starts with the head coach. Yep oh here's paul paul. If you were steve nash. Who would you prefer to have healthy for the rest of the playoffs. And you can't the other one's not healthy. They don't come back kyrie irving or james harden you get them fully healthy for the rest of the other ones out. It's weird but i think kyri and durant play well together better together. Their friends hardened to me is a better player. But i would probably go with with kyri with durant because i think they sort of stand each other a little bit better. Yes and i think too because kyrie's one before which is just players always talk about like you don't know what it takes to get over that hump or like what it takes to be a champion and pushing that extra level so they have kyrie inc and durant doing that together. Make sense you know. Milwaukee played really good defense. They four seventeen turnovers that matches brooklyn's total turnovers in the previous two games combined stat.

Cmo ring dna here with my colleagues howard brown. Founder and ceo vring dna ryan vallon court senior director sales. We're here to talk about strategies for revenue growth so really important time to talk about that because buyer behaviors completely changed and bb. Sales teams are totally failing so just as some examples just to kind of frame the conversation we know that sellers are engaged in only about seventeen percent of the total buyer journey. Right now which is astonishing further. We know that forty four percent of millennial buyers want a totally seller free experience. That's really amazing. In by the way they're okay with that for purchases in excess of fifty thousand dollars to serious problem out there sellers expect to take buyers along linegar track that's not really working for buyers buyers one stars to understand their needs. They want personalized experience. At about two thirds. Say that's not even close to happen. So howard like to go to you. I just say. Why is this happening where our sellers. Totally missing it. It's happening for a lottery. I think buyer expectations have completely changed all been affected by digital transformation. That's happening the consumer space. So in many ways we've all been primed amazon to expect a friction free buying experience. We expect the service to know what we want when we want it to understand preferences and to deliver just in time that information to make that sales process to make buying experience the best possible and which really fascinating is..

"And if you're talking to a customer they already know why they chose you know why they either like or don't like working with you. They don't need to hear that same sales conversation with someone that doesn't know your is not as familiar with you. They need to know why they should continue working with you. What you've done with them and not just that we. We did abc. We need to know they don't care really so much about activities they care about how those you know how you feel their gaps. How those gaps that you did feel how. They impacted parts of the organization. Not just maybe that one to our benefit you can say that. You had an impact on operations or an impact on finance as well as that department. Then it's a different conversation and a different story and it's much easier to get that buying internal buying consensus. Okay okay. i love l. So another thing we talked about woods. You mentioned there's a huge decrease in the response rate to email messages How our can sales teams adapt to that. Because you know that's traditionally how people for the last wild than getting hold of his san email. Send you a message only thin. Let's get a conversation started yet. I think the you know. I think i saw a stat that it was like a drop of in responsiveness like forty four percent and then i think it was like from lincoln. That did the study and they said it was because of kobe. And i really don't think that's the only reason i think it's because a lot of sales of marketers kind of forget that it's all about connecting with people so obviously face meetings worn a thing. Luckily they're coming back But we were ford to force to build. You know relationships in digital platforms. Some of us were used to that some of us had already honed in on that and were doing really well so it wasn't that big a deal but a lot of people were just kind of pushed into it With no training with no etiquette with no like. How do i do this. And i think they thought because a different platform it had a different way of navigating. And it's really not because traditional says marketing is all about leading with value in showing value. And that's the same thing when it comes to digital and especially linked in you know We trying all recover from a lot of people. Companies had stalled quarters stalled pipelines or deals that kind of just fell through the cracks But a lot of buyers don't wanna go back to the way that it was or pre covid buyer seller relationships according to mckinsey that something that they found.

Afc that out and that there would be at the tension for trees. Decent legislation passed. And that's the happenings first. Big track with china bill that humorous pushing and basically say three nonpartisan bill that allocates a couple of billion dollars. And maybe the train or something like that much to science and research to say have been chinese or tissue intelligence robotics and little spat over whether you think the department or the national science foundation the certain that they split the difference and it passed i think eighty and all about twenty republicans going along with and that was really fresh i. I didn't feel since by became president of the motions with journalism. Like that and Now that now the infrastructure bill. They're apparently of ten senators five couple. Type democrat pepsico and chops the spending things other than infrastructure like colleges infrastructure. And stuff like that but the guilt problem is always have you paid for. The left wanted tax increases just because they wanted tactic and envious vengeful. And that's what they wanted to do. And the republicans came and they said why should we wave taxes and we have six billion dollars just in stimulus as it hasn't been spent most of the year marks for state and local aid facing localities. Don't need us. They're making a lot of money. And it was a also apply. I still said that they were going to increase unemployment benefits but then task the rejected the english.

Do you think president biden whispered in the senators era and told them You know why don't you do that for so was i really don't want to do exactly. What the extreme left wants to do yeah. I think that's what it possible. I think that I think the next big compromise that's gonna come is on voting rights You know there's so much crap in the pelosi bill hope and stuff like brick your white g. but just some stuffing bad and mentioned said he'd go along with some variant of the john lewis voting rights act because of my moderate piece of legislation provisions.

I think we can replace the since you rarer minerals that china that gives them that monopoly with americans From increased rare earth mineral production by forty four percent in this last year's driven and will continue to do that will ultimately make those battery here I think they're like time that money spent.

A fee of thirty thousand dollars so that the banner ad would be placed at the top of hot wired's pages for the duration of three months during that time according to one source. At least i could not verify this. It's widely reported.

According to a two thousand nine hundred study published in the lancet planetary health some scientists have linked this to climate change finding the pollen counts across the northern hemisphere have increased over the last twenty years and the pollen season is increasing by about one day every year worldwide. I was curious to how many people suffer from allergies. Because i know some friends some family. Fifty million five zero fifty million. Americans experience various types of allergies each year. Yeah family who who struggled with. It seems miserable but yeah finally absolutely fascinating anyway. Today's real topic amazon's emergence as the third digital ad giant. Eric amazon and their advertising business. Today we talked about amazon more broadly. The retail side of things as well as the avatar well. We touched on advertising business quickly and the cloud business quickly. But we cover them during that we're going to zoom in on the advertising portion of amazon as it continues to grow in significance. I really making some noise particularly advertising space so just to give the quick one line in the high level numbers for amazon one hundred. Ten billion dollars total net sales. I was mentioning before. That's the size of ukraine's gdp sixtieth highest gdp in the wild. so amazon. made a love money. That's just in one quarter. They made that much money and that was up that one zero nine that one hundred ten billion dollars in q one was up. Forty four percent year on amazon hall. The doing pretty well other is one of their line items and other kind of code for advertising mainly appetizing when it comes to amazon. That's the fifth largest slice accounts for six percent of the share of money that they make the highest growth of any segment that they saw seventy seven. Percents is up from forty four percent in q on twenty twenty seven eric zooming in on the advertising. Push this biggest takeaway from amazon's advertising performance in q. one well ultimately it's continued to grow. This is one of those segments at has shown incredibly strong growth over the past couple of years and they've very quickly went from you know a medium size digiland seller to having ten percent of the market and just to put that in perspective the overall digital ad mark in the us is roughly hundred fifty billion dollars. So that's roughly fifteen billion dollars last year in ad revenue that they made and there is still growing at you know. Insane percentage rate year on year amazon advertising. You mentioned eleven percent ten point seven eleven percent this year twelve next year. Thirteen the year after that so they continues to take up. Where those coming from. Eric are they coming from google and they coming from facebook and they coming from other. Are they brand new dulles. It's a couple of different things. So first off. Amazon's ad businesses mainly payments for promotion on their e commerce site. That's actually about ninety percent. The ad business when the remaining ten percent is twitch and their video ad business and they're offsite dsp. But when you look at what's happening with e commerce side of the business first off it's really just an increase on the take rate. It's variable take rate so for sellers on amazon increasingly. You're going to want to advertise to make sure that you get sales. The second thing is that it is taking share from other players in the market. Google search to certain extent tv advertising to certain extent since this is such a measurable form of advertising has closed loop attribution if you modern add. You basically know how well they're doing. And the are the return on your ad. Ben's going be very high there because you're essentially reaching people as they're in the process of either researching a product or making a decision to buy a specific product So yeah eleven percent chance today. Compared to facebook's twenty-five google twenty nine of amazon's is three times a higher there than fourth place which is microsoft three and a half percent. today we estimate amazon's use ad. Revenues will grow thirty percents this year to just over twenty billion dollars eric. There's a lot of noise being made in the retail media while the love competitors investing in this space which ones to you the most well when we publish our digital ad spending estimates break out about twenty individual companies and these are all very large companies. Who are selling a lot of digital advertising. We're not really breaking any small companies. The fastest growing company last year on a percentage basis was walmart. Who doubled their ad. Business year on year to roughly billion dollars in digital advertising specifically in this is running the exact same playbook as amazon sponsor products and brands its payments to appear higher in search results on walmart dot com and the app and also enters across the home screen. And you know keep in mind. This isn't something. That's brand new. Trade marketing shopper. Marketing has existed in brick and mortar retail. For a very long time and this is the kind of digital equivalent. It's those dollars shifting online for walmart. They you said the wasn't a mistake. One percents so walmart reached a little over a billion dollars in digital ad sales last year in the us. And that's roughly doubling your on your and we are expecting incredible growth as well from this company reaching about three billion dollars in two years in digital ad revenues. Oh okay that was exactly. I was wondering yeah. Where are they going next. Who else comes to mind. There's a there's a lot of folks who else has impressed you in this retail space. Yeah so ultimately. This is a pretty big space in getting bigger. Different retailers are creating new products you know. Investing in products have existed for a while so target has a fairly large business. Kroger has a fairly large business. But what. I really want to bring up. Is that when he looked towards these marketplaces this very key area of revenue growth for them. So marketplaces like ebay. Instacart things of that nature where you have different people selling on a platform. That's always going to be really good. Then you for advertising or at least payments to appear higher in search results so insecure is building out this capability quite a bit. They're in quite a bit in it and they actually were one of the major beneficiaries of the pandemic as people shop more online. They shop grocery online. That sort of thing and while these guys aren't necessarily as well. I know he spoke about this last week. Jordache uber are also investing in this with their restaurant.

We Finally Know Exactly How Bad The Pandemic Has Been for Airline Pilots
"We see in plane and pilot magazine. We finally know exactly how bad the pandemic has been for. Airline pilots and the numbers here are pretty staggering and eliminating max indeed. I was really quite stunned to take a look and see. Just how bad things are. I mean we all know that the airlines have been hit disproportionately hard here during the pandemic that know some pilots have been out of work. This was a survey done by goose. Which is a pilot. Recruitment firm not for birds but for a and they found that nearly half of all pilots worldwide. Either looking for work or on furlough which was shocking to me. They said that thirty percent of the people surveyed were out of work and looking and other seventeen percents that they were furloughed awaiting further news and additional. Six percents said they were still employed with their airline. But we're doing non-flying works pretty stunning. Half half the pilots Basically out of work or looking for work in this comes from a survey of two thousand five hundred ninety eight pilots. This survey was open for four weeks just to kind of set. The timeframe in it closed october thirtieth twenty twenty and it was anonymous survey thirty questions and the survey was designed for pilots of all ranks. First officers second officers and cadets in some of the data in this is just really really fascinating and we'll have a link to the survey report which was done in conjunction with flake global. And a you just peruse some of this and find some really really interesting interesting things but By way of demographics of those almost twenty six hundred pilots forty-three percent of the respondents were in europe. Nineteen percent from the middle east and africa eighteen from asia pacific Twelve percent from north. America six percent from south america and two percent from china. So it's pretty Pretty global in the survey touches on things like pilot retention pilot job security employee engagement even Stress mental health wellbeing things like that so Some really really interesting statistics Couple of the ones that i like. Maybe if you guys saw some things that piqued your interest but one of the questions was when do you think aviation will make a full recovery to pre covid levels and not. Surprisingly only ten percent said up to one year the biggest spike was up to two years. Thirty four percent of the pilots thought up to two years but twenty eight percent up to three years and longer than that twelve percent four years. Ten percent five years and six percent said they thought it would never never be the same So that's the pilot's perspective. No one was. Do you think your mental health has been affected by the pandemic and here there is a direct correlation between the age of the pilot and the pursuit pilots that group in In how many of them thought that their mental health had been a acted for those pilots. Fifty five to sixty four years old thirty. Two percent thought their mental health had been affected for pilots forty five to fifty four years old but younger thirty six percent when we go down to thirty five to forty four year olds forty four percent of them thought. Their mental health has affected in the twenty five to thirty four year old group forty-nine percent and pilots under twenty four years old fifty eight percent of them thought their mental health had been affected by the pandemic so. I thought that was a really interesting result. I wasn't totally surprised by the The differences once. You mentioned the difference. I thought okay but it's the younger folks are having a tougher time. Think about someone who's twenty four years old this may be the first In a bad thing that's happened to them in their in their career folks are in their mid fifty s have probably gone through multiple things in the past and probably a better able to to ride through a downturn whereas you know young folks just not have that cushion of You know savings built up to right through. Its doesn't surprise me but still it's a large large number folks nearly six percent under a twenty-four saying mental health. Been impacted the the demographics of the respondents in terms of gender. Was you know the numbers are kind like the same numbers we've seen for a long time. Almost all male four percent female in one percent preferred not to say. I'm not sure why they would prefer not to say in. An anonymous survey but four percent identified themselves as female Which really kind of hope that that number would be coming up. Ron wouldn't when you're looking at programs With youth today. do you see more. young girls. Becoming interested involve is that number higher than four percent. I hope well Here were making a concerted effort to make sure it's higher than four percent Right now we're preparing for Air venture and we've got A program within the air venture program called girl venture We've also got One for adults named Women's sore And between those two we really want to invite women to get more involved and engaged in aviation and so We see a higher than i would say.

It happened but there Sewer system there dump station actually froze and the pipe wrote and you couldn't use their dump station usually that holds up to code. And it's usually just your fresh water pipes that break but there sewer pipe broke so it's no fun which leads us to the next thing.

We both know people that that never use the bathroom in their. Rv's out to me. It's like maybe not even a luxury. It's just minority. I guess though. I wonder if a lot of people will start using their people that had in the past. I wonder if they'll start using their bathrooms in their rv's because of covid. I would think so. Yeah i know. I know people that their showers for a closet they route and then they just use the campground a rather used a shower as storage and actually as a shower. So yeah everybody's different sean.
