"Eric say what's up to fire nation and sure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know aright. Well, yeah. What's up fire nation how excited to be here? This is this is an easy one about ten years ago. I was boarding a return flight to London, and shortly after the cabin doors closed I sent something wasn't right and as the plane descended I had a lot of pressure building in my chest. It soon became pain. Went through the my left arm my whole left arm went completely ice cold by colleague. Next to me he touched my my arm and I remember he said Jesus feels like it's been hanging in a meat locker. Let's Yeah I said too. I said to my I said Lewis. Like something's up man this. This is I'm scared Can You? Can you get some help? And? Louis jumps over runs to a flight attendant. And flight attendant comes overseas on I'm sweating at this point you know feeling really nauseous and she she asks us there's a doctor on board and. at I'm just you know feeling worse and worse doctor comes running over luckily I. Hopefully, there's always a doctor aboard flight nominee knocking lucky. There was one for me he came over. Took my vital signs and he just said immediately he is he said we got to land the plane like a sap i. think he's having a heart attack and when I when I heard those words, you had a heart attack. When you're when you're thirty, five, thousand feet up in the air these are not the words you want to hear. No. You're about as far away from help as you can get and I remember when that plane. On the movies when they talk about something like feeling in an eternity like life is going in slow motion I mean that was exactly what it felt like. Because at the sense, it probably didn't take that long but it felt like forever and I was just terrified on the way down that. My heart was gonNA stop completely I kept having to stop my head like James I'm going to get so close to say the in it's going to be lights out and obviously. I mean, you'd be an absolute magician if you had invited someone to your show who had actually died, right so That wasn't the case we a pain emergency lands. By the way out of a quick side note here I was just too curious to not Google this so. Apparently, it costs about one hundred and fifty thousand dollars to emergency land applying for the airline and I think my ticket costs like one, hundred, fifty bucks. So they did it. They did really poorly with me on that flight man, but you know what I will say to make you feel better if you need it, they likely have insurance for that. So the people who got screwed are the people who should get screwed, which are the insurance companies. Are True. So so plane touches down -mergency response team Russia's on board takes me into a waiting ambulance administered nitrates right away to open up the arteries. And then the ambulance sped off to a local hospital. Did you even know where you are like? Did you even know like what city you're in? No, I had no idea. Yeah. I knew when I got into the ambulance because everyone was speaking trench. Man Because that's the thing about flying over Europe. You're like I I literally have no idea where we're going to descend so that Eric is super interesting my friend I'm gonNA share something else that people don't know about you actually as you might be moving to Puerto Rico at some point in the future the I'll day unconscious. So that'd be super cool as well. So man what a way to kick off this interview of three simple phone alarms that changed Eric's health wealth and relationships, and we already can see that he needed a little change in his health. So talk to us about these three phone alarms that are going to elevate our health work in home fronts. So this is dead simple. And it was driven by that story. I just shared 'cause I have been obsessed with achievement prior to that point for ten years while at Skype Bill we we sold skype to Ebay I two thousand five for about four billion dollars at McKinsey and company. And then a few of my own businesses, but it was like achievement at all costs, right? So including the cost of my health and relationships and And after that, I need any something had to change a new. I needed some some balance and I literally I took my phone one day and I said, okay I'm GONNA put in some alarms and I'm going to label each alarm to reflect what like the best version of me would look like to power the relevant segment of the day and so let me give an example and when you're setting alarm on your phone, for example, if you have, I found, you go into the alarm. And you'll see a section called label and you can actually name the alarm whatever you want, and if you have android, you can go in it's called name you can label it whatever you want so. So for years. Now at six thirty, am the first alarm goes off and it says world fitness champion and I'm not a will fit as champion I never will be but like that's not the point, the point is that for me, that's the phrase that expresses my best on the health front, which is one of the key three areas you get your health, your wealth, or if you want to refer to it as work and your relationships.
RH Profits With Travel Spending Shifted to High-End Home Decor
"The company formerly known as restoration hardware. Honey Monster second quarter profits much higher than expected strong overall sales. And shares of RH are up more than twenty, two percent today in the stock sitting in all time high. Are you just kind of interesting because a lot of what we're talking about right now is people will look at revenue growth look at dooms growth in the quarter or all of these different companies and are each only increased revenue less than a percent. But the really impressive thing was like you said, Christie increase in their gross margin, they're operating margin and. They're not march and their earnings per share. So I think it's kind of a different look than a different response than we've been seeing a lot for these high growth tech stocks. This is more of a company that showing they have a lot of pricing power and they are growing in a less a way that we haven't seen very a lot recently. Yeah RH is. For anyone who's ever been in the restoration hardware you it's one of those stores you walk in. It's like. Well, it's it's clearly nice stuff. It's quality merchandise. Some of it is exceptionally pricey, but I think this. This probably goes along with the narrative. In the same direction as the narrative that we've seen in the last six months with companies like wayfair and Home Depot and Lowe's where. More people are looking around the homes that they are trapped in and saying all right I'm if I'm not going to go on a vacation I'm gonNA spend money improving this place that I live in. Yeah and that was called out in the share holder letter for this quarter, they talk about the elevated level of spending in the home. So yet the booming real estate activity accelerated shift for moving to your home. A lot of people are leaving the city's moving to the suburbs and then taken homebuilding trying to renovate to make sure their workplace is the best place they can have possible and because you're talking about it, I did spend a good chunk of my morning on the restoration hardware look book website, and I now want to buy a five thousand dollar couch. Well I'll be look I'd like to buy A. New Couch. It costs five thousand dollars in. That's why I'm just gonNa stick with couch that I have. The last check what's on craigslist for one hundred dollars? For the growth that this stock has seen and look, we've seen a lot of stocks you mentioned Zoom Zoom in this category, even with the recent drop over the past week or so Tesla, which started out the year at around eighty five dollars a share is still. Around I don't know this morning before the market opened it was close to three ninety. Restoration hardware is up roughly five times in value. Since late March, I, Know Cherry picking the bottom, but it's a reminder that it's not just the. Sexy tech companies that can have these kinds of returns. where I'm going with this Maria, is that for all of this growth restoration hardware and I can't call it h I'm sorry. This company still seven and a half billion dollar company. This is not huge. Do you think? This is still an acquisition target because it seems like sort of thing in the same way that people have said about wayfair despite wayfair growth. You know someone could still come in and make them an offer. Restoration hardware is. Not a very big company and it appears to be very well run, and as you said, they're really doing good things with their margins. I think it's a possibility. So wayfair is about twenty four, billion dollars right now I? Think it has a niche within the luxury market and that's what in their earnings call. They also talk about how they. Have elevated their shift to a luxury brand with luxury market with luxury margins at a higher pace than they anticipated and so I think that if you're looking to expand into this niche, it would be a really interesting acquisition target for them. They do in their letter also talk about all of their long-term growth plans and some of them are kind of lofty they're planning. To Open hotels, they have a luxury yacht called the h three that is available for charter in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. So they have pretty lofty goals of what they want to be. So I wonder if they don't think they want to be acquired but I think if I was a company looking to grow into that luxury niche, this would be something I'd be considering.
GM acquires stake in electric truck maker Nikola, will help make the company’s first vehicle
"Big tech was falling today. There were some big jumps in two automakers not named Tesla shares of General Motors and Nicholas Surging? After the two into two billion dollar partnership for the details it's got to fill about Chicago Phil Melissa Nice Move Higher Not only for General Motors. But also for Nikola, which is back over fifty dollars a share and this agreement between the two companies really is a win win situation. Why do we say? That this is a case where both companies are going to benefit general motors getting size and scale Nikola no longer has to think about Sh- shelling of billions of dollars to start up manufacturing. Here's what each of them get GM expects at least four billion dollars in benefits in will have another customer that it will be supplying its battery technology to its fuel cells to that is important as they looked for size and scale Nikola gains the access to GM's. And as much as some people want to knock. General. Motors they have vast experience and knowledge when it comes to electric vehicles. Nikola. Also will save about four billion dollars in development costs and the Nikola Badger. Electric all electric pickup truck that comes out and twenty twenty two that will be built by General Motors I. Know Some people are saying well, is it GonNa look just like? The GM pickup trucks that are going to be electric? No the top of it will be different. The interior will be different the software that goes inside of it in terms of the infotainment system that'll be different. Yeah. The guts will be the same the batteries, the motor that that's all going to be the same, but it's the top that's going to differentiate the badger pickup truck from. The GM electric pickup trucks is you take a look at these two stocks. One more time. Remember that General Motors also is getting a board seat with Nicholas. So look at the end of the day Melissa you're going to see more of these types of deals within the auto industry. It's unrealistic to think that all of these startups as well as every single automaker is going to come. Up with their own battery platform, their own tech platform, you're GONNA start to see them coalesce around large platforms like this. You Got Ford and Volkswagen together you might see some startups going with them. You've got Tesla and it's GonNa, continue to sell its technology, and then you've got whatever Toyota decides to do. That's
Tesla Rivals are Moving Into High Gear -- and Going Public
"From wondering I'm Elaine Appleton grant and this is business words daily on this Wednesday August Nineteenth David Brown's on vacation. Tesla has long had an image of being in both good and less good ways without comparison. CEO? Elon Musk stands out for his big vision and sometimes quirky behavior, and until now anyway, Tesla's all electric vehicles have stood head and shoulders above the competition coming from traditional automakers. Competition what competition I can almost imagine musk saying. Oh, but there is plenty coming tesla shares soared two, hundred, fifty percent this year. The company is now the most valuable automaker in the world according to. CNN. That's because Tesla which went public ten years ago is finally profitable. Tesla had a record twenty nineteen in posted its first annual profit last year despite the pandemic it's been profitable this year as well and that kind of performance and the stock market's reward for it is convincing more and more electric vehicle makers to go public and to try to woo customers away from Tesla last week, Ohio Electric Startup, Lordstown Motors Corporation, or L. M. C. said, it plans to go public by the end of the year. It's ticker symbol ride. If the deal goes through, the company will be valued at close to one point five, billion dollars. So who is Lordstown Motors to burst on the scene this way? L. LLC is a spinoff of another electric truckmaker called Workhorse. GROUP LORDS DOWN CEO Steve Burns is the former CEO of workhorse with LLC Burns resurrecting a project that we're course didn't have the money to do the company plans to release an all electric full-size pickup truck the Lordstown endurance in the second half of twenty twenty one that's according to journalist Alan. Adler, writing for trade publication freight waves. The truck will have a range of about two hundred fifty miles on a charge the same as Tesla's sci-fi looking cyber truck it'll toes seventy five hundred pounds alums. He says again, just like the chuck, the endurance will start at fifty two thousand dollars a good deal more than the cyber forty thousand dollar base price. But UNLIKE TESLA LLC plans to sell the endurance to commercial customers buying fleets of trucks since revealing the prototype on June twenty-fifth Ellen Mc says it's received more than twenty seven, thousand pre orders. That's one point four, billion dollars worth of trucks. NCO Burns says its first years worth of trucks are now sold out. That is if it can raise the money, it needs to actually make them l.. AMC. Bought the Lordstown Ohio GM plant that shutdown last year when GM killed the last Chevy Cruz that six million square foot plant needs retooling, which is costly MC plans to raise about six hundred and seventy five million dollars through its IPO. That boatload of cash could help it come through on its boast to be first to market among a group of EV pickup truck competitors in addition to Tesla that group includes Ford GM Nikola and Arabian a company backed by Ford and Amazon. So, here's the obvious L.. He doesn't yet have a product just a prototype if you're wondering how the young startup can go public without a product you should be. L. EMC is one of a handful of electric vehicle makers employing what's called a reverse merger that means the company that plans to make a product like LLC hooks up with the so-called blank check business. It's also called a special purpose acquisition company. SPAC. Is doing the reverse merger with a blank check company called Diamond Peak Holdings. Diamond peak is already publicly traded that means when the merger occurs. LLC. MC becomes public sort of like easing into a coat someone else has been wearing. This back door IPO method is easier for companies to do. They don't have to produce expensive roadshow's. Also, avoid a great deal of financial scrutiny by the SEC. One of the most famous reverse murders was Richard Branson's space company Virgin Galactic, Holdings and Fantasy Sports Company draftkings went public in a three billion dollar reverse merger. Last year according to the A. Times. The number of reverse mergers hit a record high last year. That's because the IPO market was volatile and high profile IPO's like Uber Fared. Poorly. It ain't cheap to build a new car company but Tesla's successes inspiring other entrepreneurs to try and they need oodles of money that helps to explain why another electric truckmaker nickel motors used a reverse merger to go public in June and vehicle-maker. FISKER has a reverse merger in the works. The is green truckmakers may see these back door IPO's as the speediest way to raise the cash needed to fight he'll in musk and rapidly launched their new products. Tesla's promising to deliver the cyber took by late twenty, twenty one which means that the deadline to beat yes. It may be tough to knock Tesla on it's pedestal, but LLC and a raft arrivals are sure going to try.

TV, arcade an I cloud. Now companies love this stuff because it's consistent steady income and if you're dealing with subscription overload now, how many services are on the hook for a monthly? Well, I know investor and analyst Gene Munster from loop adventures. Who thinks that apple's actually going to go beyond subscriptions to hardware subscriptions as well
How the Sperm Donation Industry is Breaking Families
"Last month a wired magazine story described a storm that's brewing in the world of sperm donation as at home. DNA, test kits become more popular people all over the world are making unexpected family discoveries. These discoveries apparently have a name NPR. Or Non Parental events at home DNA test takers are discovering DADS or half siblings or dozens of kids that they never knew about, and they're mostly not happy about it. In fact, a growing subculture complete with lobbying organizations self help literature and support groups is emerging for people making these unwelcomed genetic discoveries. One therapist juice developed a podcast dedicated to helping people walk through these kinds of situations told wired that people who uncover hidden family secrets through DNA. Testing often exhibit the classic cycle of grief after the initial shock comes anger and. Depression, their stories are all the reasons we need to take a sober minded look at sperm donation a practice that goes largely unquestioned in Western societies. The four billion dollar sperm donation industry is shockingly unregulated especially in the US children born from sperm donors are among the victims of the bad ideas of the sexual revolution. They do not have the legal right to request information about their biological fathers on the turn eighteen, which means that in most states, these children don't even have a right to their own family medical histories, of course, anyone. Who opposes or even questions assisted reproduction technologies like sperm donation are often called prudish cast his grumpy old GRANDPA huffing about a teenager blue hair after all we're told it's not really harming anyone in reality. However, there are plenty of reasons to oppose sperm donation even if we don't find the practice achey first of all, the industry dehumanizes men god-given ability to procreate transformed into a crude financial transaction as is the case with egg donation. The way the product is marketed dehumanizes image bearers, reducing them to a list of so-called desirable qualities. Like. Height hair-color supposed athletic ability or where they went to college. This isn't some enlighten new way to make babies. It's rebranded eugenics. Sperm donation also dehumanizes children robbing them the right to know who their dad is and leaving them in the dark as to whether or not. Their Dad even knows they exist in fact, the industry relies on such secrecy. The FDA places no rules on how many children a sperm bank allows to be born from just one donor while some banks might impose their own limits the country's largest sperm bank which. Is in California limits to twenty five to thirty family units per man I family unit by the way could include multiples meaning that a set of twins or triplets only counts as one unit while some activists have been calling for more regulation on the sperm donation industry for years the problems inherent to the system that's corrupt from the ground up won't be regulated away the corruption and the sperm donation industries rooted in its very warped view of human sexuality and the Family God's designed for family is baked into the very nature of. Reality like gravity children hunger for connection with your parents. For example, study suggests that many adoptees do better emotionally and socially when they know who their biological parents are and understand the adoption process. But of course, sperm donation doesn't repair a fracture like adoption does rather it creates the fracture permitting even incentivizing a view of children as products and this country eighty percent of customers who use sperm banks are either same sex couples who've intentionally chosen a sterile union only demand children or women intentionally pursuing single motherhood despite the overwhelming scientific literature that. Shows kids do best with both a mom and a dad or as the headline of a New Yorker article. Put It years ago Dan Quayle was right. This wired article just tells what is in fact in old story just with new variables of people who long for family but are suffering in a culture where the family has become. So broken whenever children and family building turned into big business trails of grieving people are left behind reeling from what we now call non parental events the broken us at the heart of the sperm. Donation Industry begins with the man who've used pornography to sell genetic product and it ends with a child shocked to learn that his dad isn't really his dad olive which serves to remind us that just because something is culturally normal does not mean that it should be true moral clarity cannot come from whether or not we find something weird or icky that kind of thing changes it can only come from God's created intent for the world for his image bearers, which is in his own words and is proven time after time to be.
Buy now, save later: financing vaccine candidates
"Up dumb. Right. Now, more than one hundred, seventy vaccines for covid nineteen or being developed across the world. Of, those six are in final large scale clinical trials. While the races on policy policymakers are. With two questions how much to spend on vaccines that may or may not win and how to ensure the winner or winners are distributed fairly, you cannot be no world where some people are saved another. Anglesey conjure a whaler is the chair of the Global Alliance for vaccines and aviation or Gabby. It's an alliance that funds vaccines for poor countries the steps that need to be taken to ensure vaccines that distributed fairly Require. Collaboration and solidarity of the world governing has set up what's called Kovacs purchasing pool for several late stage vaccine candidates is that facility it has ninety two developing countries in it low and middle income countries, and it also has seventy seven rich countries that have expressed interest by bringing them all together we will have an affordable price of vaccines for all. We have risk sharing in the facility for all, and this will ensure that so many more people in the world who would not have had access will have access so to. Be Equitable I need to be fair but equitable fair division is just one problem I for needs to be enough given vaccine to divide up governments around the world have invested so far at least ten billion dollars on Covid nineteen vaccines they have made forward purchases of about four billion doses so far more companies have essentially already started making some vaccines even before they have been proven to work Slovakia chunk of his or healthcare correspondent the contracts governments have cut with Pharma companies are for about four billion dollars of various vaccines. Now that may look like a lot when my think it's enough to cover most of the world, but it's actually nowhere near enough. Why not to begin with of these vaccines may turn out to be ineffective when the clinical trials are all done. A typical vaccine at this stage has about the twenty percent chance of payer, and some of these vaccines also use novell technologies that haven't been used in any other approved vaccine before. So the risk of failure could be even higher. The biggest issue is that manufacturing capacity globally is limited and there would be shortages, the files and the ingredients that are used in vaccines once manufacturing begins on a large. So I'm experts think that the feasible amount of covid nineteen vaccine the will have by the end of next year is just about two billion dollars. In some vaccines actually are likely to require of course of dolls to work. So we're talking about nowhere near enough to cover even a minority, the world's population. So how much would be enough? How many those should countries be buying up at this stage? Just think that given the current mix of Seo game to the there is a ninety percent chance that there will be. Actually works. Now. One of I've seen is proven to be effective billions of dollars will, of course, need to be distributed very quickly, but it's impossible to know in advance which candidate will succeed. And setting up manufacturing lines takes time a new vaccine factory can take anywhere to three years to get up and running. So government should actually help pharmaceutical companies to produce vast quantities, a range of different vaccines, and ideally economists think Thaksin's numbering in the tens of billions of dollars long before regulatory provides transit but if everybody makes all of the at the same time, there will be. Some some losers right a lot will come to be wasted that way. Yes. Of course absolutely, and that's actually the hard part for politicians because this idea of deliberately overproducing something does not sit easily with politicians or voters indeed bud you have to think about the economic costs even boosting vaccine funding ten times to about the hundred billion or more, which is what many economists are advocating for. Pales in comparison with the seven trillion dollars which governments across the world have spent or pledge to preserve income and jobs that are being lost as a result of the pandemic. So in other words, if we just think of economic output alone a took make sense for the world to spend as much as two hundred, billion on bringing forward ineffective Covid nineteen vaccine. Just fun week to the way things are headed. It seems inevitable that there will be a shortage of supplies. How will they be distributed? Once a good candidate is found i. mean we we saw when the pandemic began this rush for personal protective equipment was not a pretty scene. Right experience was quite telling by the end of April. There were probably around eighty countries that had banned or restricted exports. Youth defend America especially things like medical masks, thermometers, disinfect thens. And even if we look at pandemics the during the swine flu pandemic and you thousand nine rich countries, basically corner the global supplies of the vaccine and they offer some of it to developing countries only after they had more than asked to cover their own citizens and by then if endemic was over. So, what we really seeing now as many commentators are calling vaccine nationalism rich countries are reserving most of the potential global supply of covid nineteen vaccines. And additions countries where these vaccines can be made have the manufacturing capacities are very likely to put their own people first. So what's being done to try to mitigate that global scramble. There are several mechanisms that have been put together for countries to join forces and agree to a more equitable distribution also may end. Make much faster. So the World Health Organization has grown up guidelines of how that might look quite and according to these guidelines. The first supplies of covid nineteen vaccines should call to healthcare workers and social. Care Workers First. Then, the next batch should go to the fifteen or twenty percent of people in each country who are most vulnerable, most likely to from covid nineteen if they're infected. And then laces that are at the highest risk of outbreaks will we prioritized now whether these guidelines will be followed is a different story. It's unclear how many countries will sign up may have expressed interest, but nothing has been signed so far. So all told, what's your prognosis at this stage? Do you think the world will produce enough quantities of candidate vaccines and that they will be distributed in a way? That's even a little bit fair. Just likely that there won't be not vaccine to go around in the first year. Whether it will be distributed equitably depends on where the winning vaccine is made. If the vaccine is part of the portfolio, which is controlled by the global coalition backed up by the World Health Organization than we will see supply being distributed marsh equitably on the other hand if the vaccine turns out to be made in a country that doesn't want to share, it supplies before covering its own citizens. And it's a big country. We won't expect most of the world be covered equitably for a time. Now the solution perhaps is just to spend. More money on the current candidate vaccines, the Waza rating late stage clinical trials. Set of manufacturing, start making them in large quantities that will ensure that there is more to go around with trevor. Vaccine turns out successful. Thanks very much for joining us. Thank you. Jason.

Actinium Pharma's Transformative Radiation Treatment
"So today. We're GONNA talk about a couple of things. COUPLE UPDATES we've seen in the last couple of weeks related to Jin Amarin, as well as Kerio farm that we heard today and I'm recording this on the twenty second of June. And, then the main story today we're GONNA, talk about actinium pharmaceuticals, and I think if everything goes well with them. They could be a big play now. This weird stuff around the stocks or we're GONNA touch a little bit on that, but I think that if the data continues to look as good as it has so far, they could really make a big change in the targeted radiation space, so we'll touch a little bit on that as well. But. Yeah, for me on a personal note. It's it's been busy. Things are kind of getting back to normal here. In San Diego, a lot of businesses have been opening up. So I've noticed that actually have a bit more of a social life now, so that's definitely been entertaining. Take me away from the market's a little bit, but you know I'm here today to talk about some awesome biotech company so with that. Let's get into it. And the first piece of news I wanted to touch on is biogenic and what we heard. Is that biogen's Tech Videira pen? Five one four was ruled invalid us. District, judge, and they closed Friday at two seventy one, and they did see a little bit more of a dip this week. As we've dealt with this already with Amarin we're hearing that Bison does plan on filing an appeal, but that appeal process can. Can take up to a year, but what's different here is that we're actually expecting at risk launch, so mylan has made it clear. Myelin the company sued by John. Over this patent made it clear that they're aiming for a November sixteenth approval day for Generic Tech. FIDORA, and they have already filed an da with the FDA which is the normal process by which a generic company has to get their medicine approved. By, June did kind of expect this to some capacity because they did launch a competing drug to tech Videira, called vulgarity and a little bit of a better safety profile, and they launched this just in case, the tech texture patent battle did go south because I believe there's other lawsuits coming up against this patent, but biogen launched Romerike parity in the hopes that they'll be able to shift the revenue. They've been getting from. Tech Fidora onto American and then maintain this juggernaut status since tech for their is their biggest selling medication, and it's about four billion dollars. Dollars per year they generate in this medicine, so they're going to hope to replace that with something and the loss of this patent protection means the generics are gonNA. Come on the market pretty soon and when I did mine. Alice's using a model that I had created. If I have the tech revenue, their stock price would go down to run to thirty, so I think what's going on here is investors are pricing in the potential of America to take a lot of that revenue from Tech Videira, which would help Jin, either that or the odds of winning? Winning an appeal are there so the stock is pricing in some upside? Despite the loss they suffered, and the other thing that's going on with biogen is they are planning to file the advocating B-. Be La in two three, twenty twenty and advocate the indication being Alzheimer's disease, which is a very very big patient population, so I think there is also some support for the stock given that biding could potentially get an Alzheimer's drug approved. If not late issue than early next year and I know there's a lot of controversy over the added Keenum data I think. Think personally. It's a coin flip whether or not the FDA is going to approve it. I think the the date is very shady and it shouldn't be approved, but strange things happened with the FDA before, so it is possible that they could lobby the FDA enough to get it approved the next company, and wanted to touch on is Amarin and just a little piece of news that we heard. Is that Amarin settled with the generic company called appetites, Apex Appetites, and this settlement would keep them from launching a CPA generic until August ninth of twenty twenty nine. And I saw a lot of excitement around this just because the logic being that if apex fought that ammon was going to lose the appeal, they wouldn't bother going through the motion to do the Selman agreement keeping Aptex from going to the mark until twenty, twenty nine. But, if I were to think about it logically, I assume that the lawyers between Amarin and APP attacks have been in discussions for months by now and that the failure of Amer to defend its patents just happened to go against Amarin APTEX was not expecting that, so they ended up filing the settlement agreement anyway, but I think that if Amazon is not successful in their appeal process I imagine appetites, April tax is going to be able to file a generic before this twenty twenty nine days, so to me this neither a positive thing, negative thing, but you know I'm still holding all my shares and will look forward to that appeal decision coming up later this year.
