His Digital Marketing Agency is focused on getting people, new clients, new leads through Google ads, facebook ads, Lincoln, facebook Instagram, you name it. This is why I'm so excited to have him here today as a guest teacher because we're GONNA get some. Free Consulting. This is a really good lesson on the importance of paid advertising right now in growing your business. Even if you have a small budget that small budget can go a long way right now and you should not miss this opportunity tyler Jordan's GonNa, teach you pass it onto him. Now, we'll be back with my takeaways to wrap up the episode, but for now, takeaway? Tyler Everyone, this is tyler. Over Jordan digital marketing. We've put together a six point plan for how to run paid acquisition marketing. Even in the midst of pandemic, the world has profoundly changed over the last two months. People are staying home at a drastically higher rate even as things start to open up even with restrictions being lifted fewer people are going to go out pure people are going to restaurants a lot fewer people are going to be commuting twitter square are two of the biggest companies to announce new work from home policies that. Allow people to work from home indefinitely in a recent Gallup poll more than fifty percent of Americans said they'd like to continue to work from home even after the restrictions are lifted, that means fewer people commuting, which means fewer people listening to radio listening to streaming services, seeing billboards or out of home media. So outdoor marketing opportunities have all but dried up, but it also means that there's a ton more people sitting in their houses searching and scrolling all day long in front of their computers. This leaves a huge opportunity for those who. Are Willing to take it. We've seen massive pullbacks and marking spin, but the people who have stayed the course with their digital spend are seeing major benefits. We've put together a six point plan to explain how you can restart or improve on your current paid marketing strategies. The first point businesses down right now, but it's not going to be gone forever this also down for everyone a lot of people have pulled spin really dramatically if you have the money to continue advertising, this is the time for you to take over your space. Even if your product is dependent on people being out and about you can spend this time to position yourself for the rebound when business comes back those who spend the time and money to stay in front of people right now will continue to be in their consideration set those who poll their marketing will be lost and forgotten, and right now CPM's CPC's are at all time lows in March. The average see pm in the United States fellow three dollars for the first time in two years and the lowest amount globally ever they've increased. About four dollars since then but that's still thirty percent cheaper than what they were towards the end of February. The second point think about the channels you running billboard. Or dead print is struggling in has been struggling for a while TV is hot right now because everybody's took it home and digital is is pure fire right now even as things open up their millions of more people staying home and scrolling their timelines searching from their phones than normal, we're getting finally to see the true capability of the Internet during his time, which is weirdly exciting. NETFLIX's who lives social feeds and Youtube are quickly becoming the go-to entertainment sources for the vast majority of America. If your business typically relies on out of home media or events, look into Ott, youtube bands, and think about runs video on facebook. The third point we'd like to make is think about Tom don't forget the situation that people are facing right now but also try not to be overly cliche. The number of companies that are talking about navigating these uncertain times ridden risen by an astronomical amount you need to care and be mindful of the situation, but don't default to being too scared to have a real message. Make sure you're still telling people who you are and what you do if you can share the story of how your business is helping in the. Current situation or how the company is making changes to ensure that things remain safe when life goes back to normal the goal here is to remain top of mind for your ideal customer segment because if you don't someone else will we have an education based client advertising Kobe coming resources guide as a way to fill the top of the funnel for when their program starts. Gets back to normal. They're gonNA have thousands of new leads in their crm that they can go and attack right away they in cost relieves right now dropped to less than half of their normal rate, and while they're not converting any users right now, they're perfectly set up for the rebound. The fourth point, the noise has been cleared out. CPM's are lower than ever, but that's because no one else has advertising. So that means you have an opportunity to own the conversation personally I've only seen masterclass ads on youtube for like the last two months and I, actually finally just signed up to learn how to cook Mexican food. David able to own the airwaves because so many people have been scared and pulled out of the market. We've seen this sort of result, a lot of times from companies that we work with two. We've seen one of our fintech clients had a sixty five percent increase in conversions with only a thirty, five percent increase in spend on their top competitor campaigns during lockdown their competition pulled back and they stayed strong and stay true to their paid strategy, and they're reaping the benefits for another client of ours has been able to see a sixty one point five percent jump in numbering conversions even after social distancing quarantining started to happen, they've only increased spend about forty six percent. Outside jump in nombre and conversions, versus the spend they put forward simply because there's fewer people in the space another client was able to see a sixty one percents jump in non brand conversions after stay home orders and social distancing. They've only put together a forty five percent increase in spencer seeing outside his jump in overall conversions. The benefit here is that the audience that you're getting in front of right now is one that has more time on his hand and his testing out more tools during their downtime. So people who are getting in front of them are having an opportunity to get leads that maybe wouldn't be so to jump on a demo or get on a call with you. But if you're able to continue to spend that money and own your niche, you have a really unique opportunity to get in front of more of the right people and it might not pay off right now but it will pay off when business starts to get back to normal. And this brings us to our fifth point people are shopping around dramatically more people have more time on their hands. Money needs a stretch further. So people are taking the time to test out multiple different tools whereas they used to just focus in on one and do the easiest thing we're seeing a lot of people sign up for leads, download content and request demos in the SAS face embedded these space, and it's our job to go capture that interest. We're also seeing a lot of people buying a lot more on e commerce sites because they're stuck at home and they need fix their shopping addiction anyway. So we're seeing a lot of huge increases in ECON sector as well. If you're running an ECOMMERCE site, the best place for you to go and find that traffic and convert those users is GonNa be through digital through search social and display. So make sure that you're getting out there in front of people with the right message and using right audience the sixth and. Final point is one that we harp on regularly all of our audits and that's you need to speak to people at different stages of the funnel. Differently this is important at all times the year but especially right now, make sure that you're using the right tone to introduce yourself to new customers be a little bit more mindful of the situation those interactions but once you've introduced yourself, make sure that you let them know why you're different and why they should go with you over the other companies are shopping around with. Once they become accustomed to make sure that you asked her promote you to their friends. One of the big ways that people find business normally is they ask their friends recommendations. So if you can facilitate that with paid marketing that'll put you in a position right now with all your new customers that you bring in today to really allow that to snowball on top of itself. Once the economy starts and things start to get back to normal.

All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today or go to talk about how to ten x conversions on your order form. So what do we mean by order for him first and foremost Neil order form sting bite your checkout process whether you're selling ecommerce products or even assassin description it doesn't matter what you're selling your order form isn't where someone Azam's their car or picks a plan if you're in software it's more. So they're on the page where they're putting in their credit card details that paid they're clicking charge me or start my free trial or that page when they're cooking on complete order a complete checkout whatever it may be that's. What we mean by order form. So the first recommendation I have for you, I had a guy on the podcast last week. His name is guy has is his guy. He runs a company called Intel Mayes and he was just telling me across his platform, their personalization platform. They do a lot more than that but overall forty, six percent lift in conversions and what they do. For example, let's say you're trying to buy a dress and Yulon order form. So for example, let's Neil. Nine both women. All right. Maybe I'm Chinese and they think I like red dresses or whatever I just making things up right now but the keeping this at your persona and they'll be like, hey, that. Just looks really good on you or maybe that just looks beautiful on your right little language like that I'm making it super simple right now but they can hyper optimized for each person. The key takeaway here's you need US televised. That's an extreme example where if you have a lot of money you spend on that but if you're able to personalise on the order form, you are able to lift conversions even a little bit. I'm just giving an extreme example and then the other thing you can do all the little small tweaks from testimonials to having logos to testing the copy like start my free trial or anything benefit based like if I sell a premium version uber suggests. I. May End up trying out call to actions I get started or more. So related to the product like grow my traffic or boost my rankings, things like that. So little tweaks what you'll end up finding as they can really drastically make a big difference in your conversions if you add them up and those on the free trial badges, money back guarantee badges if you add a lot of them up and you can check out just look at the big companies that have checkout pages or order forms look at some of the things that they include you get ideas from there. You can also get a lot of ideas from conversion accelerate the excel dot com as well as conversion rate experts. And one other thing you can do, you can use a tool like often monster you can put an exit pop up on the order form page. So if they're about to abandoned while you might as well try to pick that abandoned up because they're about to leave. So simple enough to do one key thing is I think with a lot of pages you start to see a lot of bloat on one sites 'cause you're listening. To this podcast, we're always talking about new tools and a lot of these tools require you to add pixels of the site but that bogs down you want to make sure your checkout page is not bogging people down as if it's really slow as bad experience for people, they are gonNA leave just because you have all the bells and whistles it's good for you but not necessarily good for conversions at the end of the day. And look at your competitor is the ones that are also begging that'll give ideas of what's working for them on their order foams. Well, yeah. Just to go a little deeper on the conversion xl recommendation for Neil. So they actually have a lot of examples of order
The Indicator checks in on our junk bond named Becky
"Back in December, which, of course seems like a lifetime ago we the indicator made an investment. You might remember that was my Christmas present was your Christmas present we bought a junk bond. But you wanted this actually. Says only as you would wanNA junk bond, but we should explain what a junk bond is. So a junk bond is like a little loan that you give company. If you buy a bond, you're essentially blending the company or or the government. You can buy government bond to your lending the money, and eventually you get paid back with some interests them little extra yet and how much interest well, that kind of depends. So. If the company is in great financial shape, then they don't have to pay too much interest because there is not that much real risk to lending that company money. But at the company's a little shaky, not doing too great. Then they have to pay more interest because lending them money is risky. It's sort of like lending money to you know you're flaky friend or something where it's like, Hey, flaky friend who? Can you spot me for dinner? Yeah and like if you're give that person money you Kinda WanNa reward for taking on that risk. So yeah, that's a junk pot. Yes. So when companies have a lot of debt or are in shaky financial shape, they have to pay a lot of interest on their bonds and those bonds are called yield bonds or in the more fun term junk bonds Y- like your junk friends. Oh Yeah. Well that far. there's bad news about junk bonds though which is that they are riskier than other kinds of bonds and the company that you are lending money to is not considered a super safe bet the good news though they pay a lot of interest also good news they're relatively affordable mean bonds in general are pretty expensive like thousands of dollars per bond it's big money and the indicator we are on a budget. So we bought the cheapest bond that we could find and it was. For a company called hornbeck offshore services, this is a family run company out of Louisiana and Hornbeck is an oil services company and has all these big ships and they bring supplies and equipment to drilling rigs way out in the ocean. So we bought to bonds the absolute minimum for total cost of about six hundred dollars, and we named the Bond Becky for Hornbeck, and we called the bond becky with the good yield because the interest rate on our bond was huge also beyond say. He better. Caldbeck you with the good. and. Just to give you some context, a government bond back at the time back in December treasury notes the yield. As they call, it would be about one percents. One little over one percent the yield on becky hundred and forty six percents. That is a good yields. So we bought our bonds and we sat back and we waited for the money to roll in the sweet sweet money or not. When I first heard that you purchased Hornbeck I was honestly kind of scared for you. This is clear. Boston covers the bond market for Bloomberg way back when you did that it was pre-coded at the company was already having some serious struggles and Had started to do things that looked like perhaps it was going to file for bankruptcy. Then of course, like the world fell apart in couvet happened and we kind of forgot about back I did stop paying attention. Yes and so now I have some updates for you I checked in on becky feeling this day was coming. Yes. Okay. So I update Hornbeck is bankrupt. Yeah. That's very sad. I actually tried not to look up Hornbeck. Did come across my screen at one point. So I, I knew it I just didn't want to know what it meant for. So I've avoided looking too much into it. I mean in a Lotta ways it's not that surprising over the last six months thousands of US companies have filed for bankruptcy. It has been a really brutal time. Yeah, and I mean. Hornbeck I remember was struggling before the covid pandemic came along already couldn't pay its debts back then yes. So hornbeck declared bankruptcy but you know even if a company declared bankruptcy, if you have a bond, you will typically get paid back in the bankruptcy settlement right at least in part. So you know we're not necessarily in terrible shape I asked Claire. Okay. Please look into this for us. Tell us what happened to Becky. So I am inert I pulled the restructuring plan out of the bankruptcy documents and they will not learn summit. Yes. Would they say give the new like like do you want the good news or the bad news because actually I think it's it's actually mostly bad unfortunately. Okay okay. But but that means there is some good

Changes in thinking about blood pressure
"Or high blood pressure is a common condition. It's the most common reason that adults visit their doctor's office. There is considerable debate about what constitutes normal blood pressure, and depending on whose data is cited roughly half the people with high blood pressure. Do not have adequate blood pressure control, but in part this is because in 2017, the American Heart Association lowered the threshold for. For what defines hypertension from one forty over ninety to one thirty over eighty before the new definition, thirty percent of Americans had high blood pressure after the new definition, the number jumped to forty six percent, the same population of people, just a new definition of what constitutes the disease. This is an additional thirty. One Million Americans labeled as diseased for a total of one hundred and three million Americans with high blood pressure. It used to be that the ideal blood pressure was simply the average of all adult blood pressure's, but then came autopsy studies of soldiers who died in the Korean War those revealed that about two-thirds of these young Americans already had early signs of heart disease. Then the Framingham study revealed that there was an association between elevated blood pressure and heart disease, and then came studies showing that if you lowered blood pressure, you also lowered the risk of heart disease, and that sort of where we are today. Hypertension is more common in older people compare to younger people, which brings me to an interesting article published in Jama. The so-called optimize study included only people older than eighty who were being treated for high blood pressure with at least two different medications. We know that older people who take more than one blood, pressure, medicine, or prone to dizziness and falls and other side effects, so do these people really need this cocktail of different high blood pressure pills, so these researchers asked when people stopped taking one blood pressure medicine did they have dangerous increases in blood pressure? Half of the group had one medication de prescribed in other words discontinued the other continued on with their usual medications. They were followed for about three months for those who had one medication stopped. It turned out that eighty six percent of the patients blood pressure remained under control now in contrast, eighty eight percent of people who had no changes made to their blood pressure also had their blood pressure under control, so there really was no difference between the two groups. The study lasted only three months, which is too short to see if the changes in the drugs had any impact on the length of life or the quality of life, but reducing unnecessary, second or third blood pressure medications may both decrease dangerous side effects, which can lead to decrease, falls and fractures and head injuries and reduce the cost of medications for the elderly.

Big Banks, Airlines, March Retail Report
"It's Wednesday April fifteenth. Welcome to mark. I'm Chris Sale with me today. The one and only Andy Cross could see my friend. Hey Chris how're you doing in there? I got coffee. I'm good good to we got. We got a lot going retail. We've got airlines. We'VE GOT ENTERTAINMENT. But we're GONNA start today with the big banks because it's earning season and the as an industry. The big banks sort of lead the way Goldman Sachs and Bank of America both out with first-quarter reports Goldman Sachs profits down. Forty Nine Percent Bank of America can take some small solace in the fact that their first quarter profits. Were only down forty five. Yeah it's it's the real headline I think from the banks. Chris is just the reserve the loan loss reserves. They're taking now in this quarter so when you look across almost all the banks. That's been the biggest hit to the prophet picture. The revenues were somewhere in the flat. Picture for example Goldman revenues were flat. Gp Morgan's revenues were down like three percent wells. Fargo was down down about eighteen percent so the revenue lines weren't such the concern. It was really much more profit picture as you mentioned. And we're just seeing that show up in the earnings per share of these companies but the biggest part for that or these loan loss reserves that these companies have to the banks have to set aside in the expectation that the economic crisis. The pandemic that we're facing is going to cause some of their clients both on the consumer side and the commercial side to not pay their bills and so they had to set aside reserves for that. So when you just look at like what happened with with Goldman their earnings down forty six percent and they set aside nine hundred thirty seven million dollars this quarter. That's almost as much as they sent. Set aside for all of two thousand nineteen and that's four times the amount that aside in the first quarter of two thousand nineteen and you see the same thing across all of the the big banks. Gps set aside an additional six point. Eight billion dollars. It's four point. Four billion in the consumer side mostly for cardholders and the rest on the on the commercial side and across the entire company. That say this is ten billion more in reserves than a year ago. So you're seeing these banks really start to ramp up their preparation for what they expect to be. A very tough market of the next year I would also think in the case for every one of these banks has an investment banking arm. Goldman Sachs is the clubhouse leader and I would think that as we are in this environment where it's really hard to imagine any company going public in the next say at least two months Probably closer to four to six months That's one more thing that a bank like Goldman Sachs has to worry about. Yeah Chris absolutely right. So there's just these very high margin parts of their business that are going to start to see. Oh the fluctuations if not complete drops because that market has really started to soften. What's interesting on the Goldman side and Goldman's really going through this this reform under the new? Ceo Their new their new CEO. The bank is really kind of struggled. It's such A. It's such such known as such a class name in the banking space but the stock has actually struggled and the returns on equity have actually trailed their peers over the last few years. There's a real push by the new. Ceo David Salman to start to really invigorate Goldman Sachs again. So we had this whole plan when he became. Ceo after Lloyd Blankfein just recently and then obviously the pandemic hit so but a bright spot to Goldman or big part. Their business has always been there. Trading revenues and. That's actually been kind of a little bit of an Albatross for them over the past couple years but that actually was a bright spot in the first quarter of the same thing with J. P. Morgan Goldman's trading revenues were up twenty eight percent and JP Morgan is trading revenues. Were up thirty two percent so because of all the volatility because of all the frenetic trading activity were seen in the markets from both institutional clients and consumer clients for the big banks. It's mostly institutions were. We saw these results pop up for some of these. Larger banks like Goldman G. P. M. So that's that was one small bright spot in a quarter. That obviously is showing a lot of pain. Jp MORGAN LONG-SERVING CEO. Probably the most respected name and finances. We've talked about Jimmy Diamond. Chris who had suffered a emergency heart surgery a few months ago and came back to the job right in the middle of the as the pandemic starting to really get going. He put out his earning his his His annual letter. He talks about every year and really try to set the tone for the market ahead of what we the financial institutions and banks will see over the next year because there's obviously a lot of concern With just the just the plumbing and the financial picture of US banks. Let's move on to the airline industry because several airlines including Delta American jet blue and southwest have said that they have reached agreements with the US Treasury Department on part of that twenty five billion dollar plan for payroll grants. Obviously this is Good news for those airlines and The people who work there but it really does seem like this. I don't WanNa call it a band aid but it seems like it is a A relatively short bridge. That'll get them through the next couple of months. Hopefully but all the airlines really seemed like they have their work cut out for them Chris. I think I think bridge a bridge. If not band aid bridge I think is a good term apropos because So of the two point two trillion dollar in the stainless package that was signed into law. Last week were in late March. Now the the airlines are starting to work with the Treasury Department to figure out how they can access that and both in grants and loans and as you mentioned a pretty much all of the airlines all the major ones are going to start tapping into this and this is obviously Anita step for businesses. That are really struggling. You're seen bookings that are downed. Seventy ninety percent capacity in the company these companies have they have taken capacity out from their business both domestic and international. So it's really started. There's a heavy fixed cost and these businesses and when they have nobody flying and nobody buying tickets especially business travel which is really slow down. You're starting to see it now. Show up in the potential future of these businesses. But back to your bridge comment. I think these the airlines when I look at almost all the industries that operate and you think about the recovery patterns. I don't know if we're going to be in a v-shaped recovery or more of a U. shape slow growth recovery of both in the US and worldwide. But I do think. The airlines travel companies of all the industries. They will really be in the most flat shape recovery and I think it'll take a while for consumers to be able to come back into the travel mode get used to going back into airplanes. Get used to going back into airports. Airports Basically over the last ten twenty years have become big retail destinations. And you're seeing now foot traffic in the airports drop off a cliff and that's hurting the retail establish establishments inside these airports so that industry is just going to go along a long way to recover. They they needed this. They needed to be a tap the US government to help them support their business. Because without that you would see massive bankruptcies in the Industry Savan to the retail industry because we got the march retail report. And it was. I think every bit as bad as we were all expecting retail across the board down eight point seven percent in the month of March. That is the worst in history. Worst drop in history and context third on the list is the drop in retail that we saw in November. Two thousand eight and this was more than twice as bad in terms of percentages. And you start going through this. And the and of course the lone bright spot is grocery stores up around twenty seven percent but some of these other numbers in here you look at clothing and clothing accessory down. Fifty percent motor vehicles down twenty five percent. These are not but I kind of like we saw with the monthly jobs report for March and we knew that it was much worse because it really the only started They stopped collecting that data mid month. Same thing with retail. I mean I'm looking at one of my thoughts when I was going through. The march retail report was my God. How much worse is April GonNa? Because then we'll have a full month of this crazy was really devastating report. I guess not too surprising considering what we had seen in in late February and obviously there's our own consumer behavior but just for some context first of all that eight point seven percent number. Chris you mentioned is just a drop from February. So it's a month over month seasonally-adjusted number but historically that if you go back. They've collected this data since nineteen ninety-two if you go back. Usually that month-on-month change is in a small less than a percent change so the average is about point three five percents. So it's it's pretty tight. It's a very tight range. You're talking an average of point. Three percent with a standard deviation so changed from an average of less than a percent. So you really talking a very tight range here. You're talking last month. We saw a drop of eight point seven percent so it's significant compared to the average and not in way outside this the norm of what we see the last few decades so like you mentioned the worst number before this was in the great financial crisis when it was when when the number of fell three point eight and three point nine percent back to back. So we're talking twice as much as that drops it just context that about how significant this was just knowing wh- how we have changed as consumers. It's really pretty. It's evident and now we're seeing a show up in the number so as you mentioned some of the areas really got hit just really just a very significantly and then you see you see spots like grocery stores actually have a very significant ramp because as we continue to spend more and more at the groceries try to stock up in preparation for the quarantine that we are all facing and now still face and then you see things like food services and drinking places down twenty six percent from the month before and obviously just showing there that the real impact and that's having ripple effects because when you talk about ten to twenty percent of the global of the US employment is somehow tied to entertainment travel that area getting back to our airlines business.

Winter Baltimore resident Adam Richardson found a six inch long crack in the windshield of his twenty seventeen Ford fusion, I didn't think it was gonna be that big of a deal. He thought a couple hundred bucks. But then he called an auto glass company. I said, hey, I've got this crack here's the make mama my car, and they said, oh, not a great sound seat. Richardson's car has front collision sensors behind the windshield replacement glass, that's different thickness or clarity can cause them to malfunction. So Richardson had to buy manufacturer approved glass, and then have sensors recalibrated to work properly. It ended up being somewhere north at seven hundred.

"Network. Lungs part of your weekend. You're tuned into Tennessee matters. I'm Robert wan as we get into the new year. There are lots of people that might be thinking about new paths for their careers, of course, in economy in which the job market and different opportunities are always seemingly influx. It also seems so too are some of the things that people are looking for in their next employment opportunities that's part of what we're talking about. With the guest joining us on the phone this morning. He is the director of permanent placement services for Robert Half Nashville that stands show-me. Oh, dan. Good morning to you. Happy new year to you. Hey, good morning. Robert and happy new year to you as well. Talking a little bit about the way things are going in the economy and people looking perhaps for their next opportunities whether or not they're in a position or they're just between their different opportunities. But your company put together a study. Recently, looking at some of the dynamics surrounding some of the job search is what do we know? Well, there's actually some new with with the new year starting a lot of people are making new resolutions. And our office team division has done a survey. That's quite a few people here locally as well. And and we found that forty six percent of local employees are are looking for things like fitness facilities and programs and health and wellness offered by local employers here in Nashville, which is is greater than the national average pretty significantly as well when you're talking about some of these things I ve lived here in the mid state for almost four years now, but I spent a lot of time in the on the west coast and in the bay area. And so the things you're mentioning I hear things that that I guess maybe. A lot of high tech companies were the first to really make a conscious effort not only making these opportunities available to employees really making them a highlight in a in a prominent feature to employment in these particular companies one is this what we're talking about predominantly as far as the companies that were were mentioning, and is it is it is it does go beyond. Absolutely. It is. But it does go beyond just technology. Nashville Scott, one of the lowest employment unemployment numbers in the country. So because of that it's giving employees opportunities to to find things other than just salaries that are important to them. So I as as the market titans and NS as tight as it's ever been here locally, their employees are looking for other things that are more valuable such as work life balance and health and wellness, facilities, end or providing discount. Free gym memberships in those types of things when you're looking at some of the companies that have been I guess, maybe looking at whether they're adding these things or or supplementing some of these benefits that they already have. What's your sense of how the dynamic is shifting in Nashville? Are we talking about companies that are new to Nashville that where we see? That's our running joke in the mid state, right? The the unofficial bird here is the crane because of all the construction there's so many high rises and buildings that are coming in the newer opportunities that are provided by new companies coming to Tennessee, or we talking about existing companies that are maybe just trying to keep up actually think we're talking a little about a little bit of both. I think as so many new employers are coming into the city employers are realizing that to keep your top talent right now, you have to have you have to come up with creative ways to to keep them engaged in happy. And thriving in the workplace, and and health and wellness has become that much more of a staple in this environment. So if you're a lot of times these employers, and it can be your new companies, and you're well established companies as well. A lot of times the reason they promote these opportunities as they may not I mean for one it costs them significantly less than healthcare expense. If your employees are healthy. When we're talking about some of these benefits, and and some of these perks, obviously, the fact is that for some industries and some companies these are still worlds away from a reality for for for a lot of workers. But understanding that the probably more and more companies are going to have to provide some of these these different opportunities and features and benefits. What are maybe the hot items that you you suspect people are looking for most well from an employer perspective, some of what's being offered, and and employees potential employees as well are discounted gym memberships or I played golf earlier or last week, and I played golf, and I what one of my the friends that I was playing golf with. He's rewarded substantially from his healthcare provider from an from his employer for for keeping an elevated heart rate for. For for tracking his steps those types of things. So those are some of the things that are provided fitness discount on gym. Memberships is one area that's done. Sometimes it's it's doing a company sports team or a company jogging club or walking club. Those types of things that sometimes they don't cost a lot the employer a lot of money to to get those things started within a workplace, and it really helps overall productivity from employees as well. If you're just joining us Dan show from Robert Half nationals joining us as we discuss some of the dynamics that are going on in modern day twenty nineteen job searches. And and I guess for that for that matter job retention is a lot of what we're discussing. I think it's still safe to say you're free to correct me or expound on. This is the fact that a lot of some of what we've just discussed with some of these these benefits that go with these competitive. Lisa after jobs. There's we're still talking predominantly white collar jobs. We're not talking about a lot of a lot of blue collar opportunities, and maybe even service industry type positions that that that's still a fair assessment. Yeah. These are mostly office related jobs at I'm referring to from from our study. What are remember when I was in the bay area? And a lot of this was becoming like, hey, wow. Yes. It gets to do this kind of stuff the ones that were at that point. They were new where opportunities like you get your laundry done onsite. You just had to bring it. And they would you know, they'd bring it back to you. By the end of the day, kind of thing the transportation where you can get on the bus that would take you anywhere from within like an hour ninety minute radius away that it would come pick you up. Those were the ones that were were knew what are some of? Maybe the things that people aren't thinking of that. That are I guess. Maybe the things that are the jewel benefits these days. Well, those are certainly still things that are offered as well. And if you go outside of the healthcare, flexible, flexible scheduling is now kind of important as Nashville continues to grow, and the traffic is getting worse than it was it's nothing like some of the other major cities, but it's continuing to get worse. And and more and more people are moving here. So so flexible scheduling parking downtown a few years ago, it was pretty easy. And now it's become a pretty expensive to employees es and four employers to handle in terms of assistance with their employees. So oftentimes there there's there's some partnerships with the downtown with national national downtown partnership where they provide free parking at titan stadium and shuttles or so part, but parking reimbursement for for parking can be valuable in the downtown area and other areas that's not as sizeable but back to the healthcare. Side. A lot of employers are offering desks now that are more advantageous such as sitting standing even some we've heard are offering like walking treadmill type of desks that people can work out as well. As we wrap this up ten maybe put a button on this. Because the fact is that while companies in general their their people to be happy. There's clearly a financial dynamic to this financial benefit to all of this. Not just ahead. So cool that they're serving lasagna on Tuesdays. That's the that's not what they're getting that. There are financial benefits for companies that provide all these things that might sound like they're their financial luxuries talk just generally about how that how those numbers are are going as far as, you know, why companies want to continue to do these kinds of things then for our listeners that are interested in finding out more about what your team found out in in this study where can they go online to learn more about some of the. The things that you've discovered. I absolutely. So in in this environment where Nashville unemployment rate, I believe in the one that just came out in January set for December the unemployment rate Nashville, I believe it was two point five or two point six percent. And so because of that employees are having to compete outside of just a straight salary in and to do that some of these things sound expensive, but replacing current employees where you have to go back in you have to try and find a talent as this not this not extensively out there right now, and to retrain and and to cover that the area when when you're short, and and your staff with other people that are over taxed as well. It's difficult. So it's a lot less expensive for employers to create a workplace or an environment where their employees right now are have a better work life balance or. Able to to stay healthy it costs employers less on insurance as well. In in terms of expenses from please that have health issues if they're able to keep their their overall workplace healthy, so in this environment, some of these things might sound menial, but they really are important to a lot of employees in this environment. And so in order to keep that, it's very important for employers to think outside the box, and sometimes they can be wasted aren't that expensive to to have a sports team for your for your -ployees or to offer a walking running club, or, you know, have a professional come in to do to do some health assessments or something like that it costs a lot less than than to dilute the employee, and then spent time trying to replace in retrain that employees. So it's Robert Half dot com is a is a great place for people to go, Dan. She joining us today. Hey, Dan, thanks for your time. And it's good insights on some pretty important to a lot of people. So thanks for spending some time with us this more, Robert thank you very much for having me. Really? Appreciate it in.

These guys like he's been great. And he's a lot of fun to watch. But people go nuts. But it won't really it won't matter because that's why they did this. Now, this little checks and balances here, I think it was a smart move. Honestly, some people say that stupid if the fans want Dirk rose or Luca in there, then it's just an exhibition game why not put them in there. Would you guys agree with that or fan zone necessarily know how much their vote counts for I don't I don't think they're not talking about the mathematics the percentages behind it? So they see the bow. They should be able to vote. It's their game. Right. But no, I agree that you shouldn't get as Pachulia in the game. I think that's so you think it was a smart move here by silver and the NBA to put the last call. I it's a nice like forget forget talking about the math. But when it gets down to the the math it actually, the ratios are pretty good pretty smart into in terms of getting guys that are deserved into the game. Okay.

"forty six percent" Discussed on NBC Meet the Press
"It looked as if twenty sixteen was repeating itself. Democratic house victories were Amir trickle in the first couple of hours Republicans were winning big marquee racists. And we wondered whether Democrats would have to waive their wave goodbye, but five days later the election. Looks a lot like what we expected nationally. Democrats won fifty two percent of the house vote to forty six percent for Republicans and that forty six percent exactly matches President Trump's popular vote toll in two thousand sixteen by the way, the president's job approval rating and our final NBC news Wall Street Journal poll on Sunday forty six percent, which is likely to be it looks like the number in the exit poll itself store posters as of this hour. NBC news projects Democrats will win two hundred thirty one seats in the house, plus or minus five Democrats should end up netting somewhere between thirty five and forty seats. When all the votes are can we have about ten or eleven races still on call in the Senate Republicans. So far netted two seats in Florida too close to call with Florida headed for recount. And of course, there's that Mississippi run off later this month, President Trump reacted with a combination of concern confidence concern that House Democrats can now block agenda use their newfound subpoena power to investigate Russian election interference. And perhaps look to see if he's profiting off the presidency, and then confidence that Republican Senate will now have his back on those issues and approve his judicial appointments. Meanwhile, Mr Trump signal that he has no intention of is slowing his assault on the Muller investigation sacking immediately. His attorney general Jeff Sessions within hours after the polls closed and choosing as his acting Jeanette Whitaker who oversee an investigation he's openly attacked, but it was the growing realization that Democrats at one a sizable victory on Tuesday that seemed to have the president rattled. Couple of seats. Doesn't matter. It doesn't matter President Trump acting embolden but newly vulnerable is attacking the institutions which could hold him in check claiming election fraud in Florida without any evidence. And all of a sudden they're finding votes out of nowhere. Although I hear you tell me accusing zone of electoral corruption and even asking whether it is time to call for a new election. Mr. Trump Banda CNN correspondent from the White House while threatening to pull access from other reporters could be others. Also, when you're in the White House, this is a very sacred place. He also threaten House Democrats who made their biggest gain since the post Watergate elections of nineteen seventy four and will now we'll subpoena power in investigations into his personal finances and contacts with Russia. They can play that game. But we can play better because we have a thing called the United States Senate, Andy. Mocked Republicans who refuse to embrace him. Carlos Bella, Mike Kaufman. Too bad, Mike Mia love gave me no love and she lost most consequentially less than twenty four hours after polls closed. Mr. Trump fired is attorney general replacing Jeff Sessions with loyalist Matt Whitaker lashing out at reporters who asked if he wants his new acting attorney general to rein in Robert Muller's Russia probe stupid question that is what a stupid question the president denied is relationship with Whittaker on Friday Whitaker, but just a month ago. Whitaker's great guy, I know Medwick as a political pundit on TV Winokur is said Mr. Muller's investigation could be turning into a witch hunt and floated ways to weaken it, it's a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced it with a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn't fire Bob Muller. But he just reduces the budget so low that his his investigation grinds to absolutely almost Missy Wittig..
"forty six percent" Discussed on CRYPTO 101
"Yeah, I think you know, we, we have a real problem with that wild west approach. I mean, even earlier in Hugh one of this year, there was a report out that forty six percent of the ICO's from two thousand seventeen had already failed. So for the most part in our fund, we do not invest in ICU house were on a secondary market looking for exchange traded liquid assets. You know, we're taking the Goldilocks approach to to crypto assets were not looking for the ICO latest project. That's gonna give a thousand Bagger. We see that as to risk a, you're too hot. They don't have a. Product built yet. And yet we don't wanna take that passive index approach where we're just buying the top ten crypto assets. You know, we really see that as too cold and not capturing enough of the upside. So our model is that mid cap, Goldilocks approach where we're looking at network value or market cap of crypto assets between one hundred million dollars and two billion dollars, and that's really our our sweet spot. And we think that gives the best risk adjusted returns from the blockchain space, Aaron, Paul, what do you think men like? Look, you have companies that raise one hundred million if they might have been ICO's and they could be liquid now that could be exchanged traded, but they still have no project and they have one hundred million of the investors dollars that they might call contributors do. Do you think that this? I don't think this is wild west anymore. I think that the wild west was there because everybody was greedy. But what we have is a lot of people that did, I would say borderline illegal fundraising practices. What do you think Erin? Well, I'm not. Lawyer. I think that one of the things that excited me about the space is that I had a rare opportunity in time to invest in something. I'm old enough that I remember the dot com bubble. I'm old enough that I remember friends getting into building a website and and I was like, man, I missed that shit. I missed it and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss the next tack, the next wave. And I'd have a little bit in investing before crypto currencies. And when I was talking to my friend, Matthew Erin about getting into investing and you said, hey, man, check this out. And so I did. And I said, wow, this is, you know, 'cause as an investor, you learn at an institutional way as a retail investor, the difference between, oh, you're just a retail investor, and this is an institutional investor and they have access to all the candy, and you have to sit here with, you know, broccoli. Right? You gotta eat your broccoli, I. Yeah. And and so I came in to the space and I said, wow, I get a chance to be like an angel investor and then money's disappearing. Right? And you're, you're sitting there going oldest, decentralized, anarchic kind of thing. You know, the thing that brings people over to not government, ran the people get the run it, and there's bad actors and they take your shit, and they took people shed as a just a normal dude. I ask myself. Yeah, I mean, and you talked a really smart guys like Richard Burton, right? Remember we had Richard Burton on. He said, why are people trying to build rocket ships when I haven't even built a skateboard normally how this works is you get a little bit of money, you better prototype, you build the skateboard then you build a bicycle. You make sure the bicycle works and he put a little motor on it. Call it a motorcycle, and you keep getting more money as you scale. You can have a vision, but you just get a little bit. It as you perform, you know, I guess I kind of feel like what you're saying Matthew as there's there are pitfalls between a decentralized organization in a centralized organization, a centralized organization being all these rules and governance, etc. Etc. In the allure of a decentralized way that anybody can make money. Right. So who's in charge, right? That's a really good point..

"Of our neighbors are living in or near poverty and struggling to get by i have to ask if we're talking about two thousand sixteen data what stands out to me or to significant flooding episodes that we had that affected in some way shape or form almost every parish in our state and so we know at home we were affected here particularly hard on the north shore so how how how of those events those natural disasters affected families that are living either as you said right there at the middle class and able to get by now have fallen in or those who were in allison perhaps our into poverty our friends up intangible hall paris's example because the twenty sixteen august floods just decimated ten thousand households so forty six percent of the families eleven towns ball perish live below the alice threshold and so when ten thousand homes are affected that suggests that a number of those households are alice families and so when we talk about allison what can affect alice many folks are just one harsh storm away from falling into poverty and so we've seen it firsthand the folks that were just barely getting by meeting their basic needs but barely get thrown into a tailspin that's caused by natural disaster that they couldn't control that didn't have a savings didn't have the wherewithal to be able to recover owned their own and so you're not a way in our community partners have been trying to help but it suggests that as long as we have folks that are struggling day to day and they're exposed the natural disasters there are always going to have folks are going to spiral into this poverty or alice demographic and so and we know also means a couple that not only do we have the flooding events but we know we're facing some economic changes both here at home and on the national level and that's affecting you know this large percentage of folks that are struggling to get by i guess my other question that ties into that is we as americans are so used to looking at jobs reports are unemployment rates to understand or or maybe not to understand but to get a feeling for how our local economy is doing and i think that you know when we hero we're hitting all time record low unemployment rates it sounds like we're doing particularly well but the reality is we've got almost fifty percent of folks in southeast louisiana that are struggling to make ends meet and so maybe they're working but they're not making enough the you know in in particular you know we see it in the hospitality and service industries you know the lower wage jobs dominate the economy and while there's great we all rely so heavily on individuals that work in those industries that make our experiences in the city fantastic and pretty much everybody that comes to southeast or new orleans feels you know the benefit of a really strong tally industry but it's unfortunate that many of those folks are making lower wages and so we're trying to take approaches at united way that help a folk figure out how to increase their wages you know because you got to grow your wages to be able to meet your needs but also how do we help you begin to manage and lemonade expenses and most of all manage your resources effectively as you possibly can to stretch those dollars as far as you possibly can i want to touch on the specifics of what's going on at united way in the way that you're helping folks living under the alice special the little later in the show but you just mentioned that you talked about the fact that folks that are working in the hospitality industry are more likely to be alice or how to who is also in our community majors in general is particular group that we see a particular race a particular age we know in interestingly enough we didn't break the study down by race or gender i'm but we do know is the alice population there are no no there are no boundaries it doesn't discriminate and so we know that these are our friends and family members and so if you walk into.

"And others hid under their desks from the gunman and we will update you as we learn more as the divide deepens between republicans and democrats in today's heated political climate the two parties appeared to no less and less about each other very bake in junior is a political writer for fivethirtyeight he's into recent research about the partisan divide his story is called democrats are wrong about republicans republicans are wrong about democrats perry bacon junior welcome to the studio thanks for having me you looked primarily at a study published in the journal of politics and these two researchers tried to suss out the misperceptions that voters have about people in the other party how did this research work so what they did was they did a poll where they asked people about kind of stereotypical groups in each party for example how many blacks and the democratic party and how many evangelical in the republican party about twenty five percent of democrats are black republicans think about forty six percent of democrats are black about six percent of democrats are gay lesbian or bisexual republicans thought about thirty eight percent of them are on the republican side about two percent of republicans make more than two hundred thousand dollars a year democrats thought forty four percent of republicans made that much about thirty six percent of republicans are southerners democrats thought the number was forty four percent now why do you think that is i think there are to us relations one is i think people are just not great at math for example it is true that most blacks vote democratic but this is not true that therefore most democrats are black the second factor here i would say is media coverage and what i mean by that is the stereotypes of the parties in the media are really deep the media every four years maybe every two years says democrat ex can only win if blacks vote for them in huge numbers and republican ex can only win if evangelical over them in huge numbers so i'm not surprised that people have internalized deeply those stereotypes and maybe over internalize them another way to think of this is the idea that just like advertising or commercial branding now we kind of see party identity as part of our own identity which makes it really high stakes if you're arguing about the old days it used to be you know the parties were about like text balls republicans want lower texas democrats higher texas but now you have the parties that are not just divided on policy but also on identity like when party has become j not just about policy but also about who you are that makes it much harder to resolve conflicts is why when people say they want to go to thanksgiving dinner but they don't wanna see their friends and support the the party that's why because they're now not is arguing over politics they're arguing over race and religion and geography and all these like deeply personal things did any of these researchers tell you how this might be solved they did not tell me there's not a lot of optimism about solving this problem in part because although one of my colleagues do some work with the new america foundation and his name is leads redmond one of his ideas is if we have more parties a bernie sanders party a hillary clinton party a jon huntsman party and a donald trump party and those are different views in the party so there are a lot of republicans for example who are uncomfortable the way trump talks about racial issues but their view is if i vote for democrats i lose on texas and i lose on other things that i care about but if you had more parties in it and it was easier for like us a third or fourth party to win you might not have the polarization where every person who's like deeply religious faith like they have been there hogan party even if on taxes they grew the democrats that's perry bacon junior he's a political writer for five thirty eight thanks so much for speaking with us thank you really you're listening to all things considered from npr news in a in atlantic city casino after casino have shut down in recent years they've left thousands of people out of work now there's some good news two of the big casinos have reopened under new owners npr's jeff brady reports many atlantic city hope this is the start of a turnaround atlantic city is trying to remake itself from simply a gambling destination to.
