"Record. Numbers of women are getting jobs as truckers demand for new drivers and higher pay are big factors. Here's stephen basan with the gulf states. Newsroom it's worth remembering that. Trucking is a pretty rough job for long hauls. It means sleeping in a caught behind the front seats. All those hours of sitting behind the wheel can lead the blood clots. Plus you're driving around the seventy foot long vehicle dangerous enough leads to different horns. Pamela williams is a truck driving instructor with dnc training academy in jackson mississippi.

They'll work forty hours and bring home four hundred dollars. I could go out here in a week and make a thousand dollars a quick thousand dollars doing something that i like to do. That's good a lot of the retail and restaurant. Jobs typically held by women were much more likely to vanish during the pandemic. Some trucking jobs also disappeared early last year. When everyone went on lockdown but demand for drivers started skyrocketing soon after as online shopping surged. That's led to higher pay which is attracted a lot more people including women. The number of female truck drivers has jumped almost double digits in the last year. According to the us labor department's

Wagering Strategies in Final Jeopardy!

"Wanted to talk about a final jeopardy about a week and a half ago right. The one episode. You watch was officially. The season now is on august. Thirteen right right. And there's a guy who's been on it for a while. He's very good right matt man. Yeah it's very knowledgeable. He does rub you a little the wrong way people have. I'm okay twitter and stuff. Just his attitude and my girls don't like it because he never says what is or who is he always says. What's her who's funny. Because you know the answer is you know you can bet on that. He'll say what's you can bet on that. Okay just uses contractual uses contractual. It's he's very kurt me. Does it in his regular speech when he's talking to if you've noticed okay so it's just kind of his attitude. He's just an odd kind of character. Right well tell us about. This city's a bad guy. Okay just a little different to tell us about this final jeopardy you had some. I guess we're talking. But this is a gambling podcasts. Folks so there is some game theory here. maybe. I think you're gonna talk to them. Basically my point is. I'm talking about how emotion plays into how you risk. Okay and we all see that when we gamble when we play craps. I'm very emotional. You're less emotional but you know people are emotional. They even even on slot machines right casino kind of counts on that so sure they get somebody gets down and they'll pull out another hundred because they just sure they can get it back right in the next thing you know. They've lost four hundred instead of the two hundred that they thought they were gonna lose and the casino kind of on that but this episode at the end was particularly fascinating to me and my wife and our daughters we all four watched it and we talked about it for like a half hour after it in. Okay yeah well it came down to final jeopardy met the champion had twenty seven thousand two hundred dollars. Okay and then there was a lady and she had thirteen thousand six hundred so exactly exactly how going into final jeopardy. So that doesn't happen too right and she was actually a very good player. Okay she had actually been in the lead ahead of him at one point but then she got a double jeopardy question wrong and she lost a bunch of money and so she ended up with exactly. Half of the third contestant was virtually out of the pitch right he had like twenty four hundred dollars. He had a very small amount. I mean the only way he could actually win as if they both busted and that wasn't going to happen because then would would have to bet at all right now if you haven't watched he's a little aggressive not like james wholesaler was in that he'll bets it all every time but the first time he gets a double jeopardy he bets it all okay. The second time usually he has a big lead and so he'll just bet a smaller amount like two thousand or something. Okay sure so you know. He strategizes pretty well and he's very sure of himself because he's a good player so it gets down to the final question. I don't remember what the question it was a question. We won't go into it. Was it was a question that had three possible answers and you had to come up with two of them to the right right. And so based on their bedding strategy we assumed that this woman would bet at all right because if she gets it right she double surmount she has the same as him yes and then. We assumed that he would bat some amount less than half will. Why wouldn't you just zero zero. It would be tie and now that's a legitimate mood. That's what i would have thought. Then he has to face her in a one question playoff and it really comes down to. Who's quicker with the buzzer. No i understand that. But if he gets anything right and wrong and she gets it right he ludens right. So but i can understand him not betting zero because she was very quick with the buzzer. Because he was a very good contestant and he might have thought. Look i need to beater now. Because i might not beat her in. You know the one question because it really boils down to that. That tiebreaker is just who's quicker with the buzzer. Okay all right. So i see what you're saying. Is this since this is not a time based thing right you know you have plenty of time to write your answer and everyone can answer right. And he's confident. So this is the category i thought. Okay i know enough about this category or whatever so all right really bad but it turns out she did bed at all and she missed it right so she ended up with zero zero but then what was interesting to me is in he. Bet one dollar okay. So if he bets one dollar and gets it wrong and she by chance had gotten it right he would lost if he that's one dollar and she gets it wrong whether he gets it right or wrong. These still wins right. So why wouldn't he bet like two thousand or three thousand only a dollar. And that's what we talked about roy who i do l. dollars thousand doesn't make any difference. Because he gets a wrong he loses. Gets a righty wins. Yeah right if she gets it right if he gets it wrong loses if he she gets it right he gets it right. He wins if she gets it wrong. He wins anyway doesn't matter what he bet. Okay so and so. I'm sorry to interrupt you but you know the more i'm thinking about it. Now is yeah. Why didn't he like thirteen thousand. Something like that right. Because that's money in his wallet right. That's my point. I mean why we a- dollar why we need that two thousand five thousand five. He could have bet money good about thirteen thousand five hundred ninety nine ninety right. I mean easily could have done that and he's still would've won. Yeah if you're right. He gets way more money okay. And he's pretty aggressive guy as his play shows but he only a dollar and my wife immediately turned to me and said because his personality it's more satisfying to win by dollar than to win by ten

How Much Does a Wedding Actually Cost?

"Experts project that twenty twenty one wedding costs will rebound what they were in two thousand nineteen if not higher so let's take a look at the twenty nineteen numbers. According to wedding wire the average cost of a wedding reception per couple was around. Twenty eight thousand dollars. Although i'd venture to say it was probably a little higher. Because according to the not here are the average costs involved with a wedding reception. Buckle up because it's a long one ten thousand five hundred dollars for a reception. Venue two thousand four hundred dollars for a photographer. Eighteen hundred dollars for a video for two thousand dollars for florist sixteen hundred dollars for a wedding dress. Three thousand seven hundred dollars for a wedding band twelve hundred dollars for a reception. Dj seventy dollars per person for catering and the average wedding in two thousand nineteen had one hundred and thirty one guests. I guess it's an odd number because of all the singles who want to go home or at least go to bed with a new plus one and that brings the total cost of food to nine thousand one hundred and seventy dollars. The rehearsal dinner costs on average eighteen. Hundred dollars five hundred ninety dollars for the invitations. One hundred dollars for the hairstylist hundred bucks for the makeup artist. Four hundred bucks for the party favors and last but certainly not least five hundred dollars for the cake that is a total of thirty five thousand nine hundred and seventy dollars to put that into perspective that the lot more than the down payment on one hundred and seventy five thousand dollar house or tuition for a year and a half at florida state university. It's a huge chunk of change. And again i would still argue that. Those estimates are probably low. I mean shout out to the bride. Who's spending one hundred ten bucks on a hairstylist. But if you're living in la you're probably spending five times that amount which brings me to an important point of course. These averages vary widely depending on factors like location. What time of year and even what day of the week it is. You're tying the

"Talk about some poker Flop we've got pocket tens to lamps. We raised twenty and we got called. The flop is nine for deuce rainbow. So there's a forty seven going in In the from law what do you think about the spot here. I think i would probably go ahead in bet large. I do think check raises kind of fun and it can be effective against players. Who c- who does too much in this situation. Bud one three limber. I just don't trust as player to bet enough. So i think we should be putting ourselves now a little bit bigger because i think that this is not this is not a hand benefits as much from like keeping over card type hans in play so if we had. Let's say queens making bit smaller because let's opponent has like king jack Votes that there's some downside obviously with king but there's also some serious upside with jack With hens that doesn't that dynamic doesn't exist in the same way so i would be targeting just our opponents pairs mostly expecting quite a few unpaid hands to fold and then having a high confidence in us having the best hand going forward. I do think we have to be a little careful about like not sure that i'm trying to over bet turning river in member. Dvr four hundred effective so Of ten ultimately. I think we can probably just size to get all in. There's not much much better to do Like i do think if we were a little bit deeper we might want to size up on the flop and then better a more conservative amount on the turn and river mike. Let's say fifty percent pop. Just because i think if we four hundred one. Three games like can't be a lot. I mean it's philly. So i guess that players are a little bit looser. Her used Losing four hundred dollars in these environments. It depends a little bit. You're playing against like are getting stacks in here is a huge pot or is that like one of the mental. Like if you're in the casino in dc the mgm. That seems to be a game where this would be a big pot to get here. But it like the jack in cleveland. You know getting four hundred dollars in in this situation in like a one three game. A lot of the reds there in recreational players are not that rich porn stars think took change end. You might expect like a nine or a pair of aids or something like that to fold At some point the hand in if you are all in as the aggressor you might be facing calling range which has been pretty bad shape.

"The story here is from yahoo sports. The headline is e sports exacts launch certification exam to drive industry hires so in short. It's a it's a company that they've launched a there's not a non profit for profit corporation and and basically they're charging four hundred dollars. You study for this test. They give you this test if you pass the test you get e sports certified and their idea here or at least the premise was. This would be a way to know that people have some base of knowledge. I guess and are therefore more high rable about a word but you know more employable as a consequence in the industry. I will say the conversation around. This has been very much polarized people either like are very much for this and backing them up or are really very much against and i would say probably. The large majority are against it this time. Where do you fall on this spectrum. Willing how do you feel about this. Well let me start by saying like in general certifications or a good thing right like and many industries need certifications for example. I think you would be scared. If you went to your dentist and discovered that there was no certification required to be a dentist. You would say oh dear like that your like something that maybe someone should be setting some minimum standards and checking up on know like that would make me feel a lot better so we should be worried if there are no no papers on the wall is what you're saying exactly so certifications are like important. They're important to many many many industries. I will say. They tend to be more important in professions. Like the one. I cited like dentistry right or like medical professions or things like that. Where there's you know really a baseline level of knowledge you have to have you have to keep those baseline level of knowledge current and achieving that baseline level of knowledge. There's usually consequences that are potentially more severe than say making the wrong business decision right but in principle like certifications or something that seem great to me and you know like i think you should always look at them with an open.

We're we're gonna teach how to use your smart from his game and this is. This is gonna be really cool jim. I know. I don't know if you've checked this out but i'd use it before it. It's pretty amazing. Espec- i mean i'm just amazed just the quality that you get from your smartphone so i'm gonna aiden and Let's let's learn more about heating and how he got into live streaming and thanks for joining us. He's thinking he's pleasure to be here. So you know i know you're you're the co founder. Right so is it get it right. Co-founder probably got a partner. There that helps. That's right. that's right. It is two of us me and my you said ten years ago. Now fantastic ten years. Wow i got to save and you're probably in the right place at the right time right now obviously with people wanting to get into live streaming in terms of your story though. When did you first get it and live streaming will fit recently so i have something i've had an interest in for a while and i have a long list of things that i want to build and explore. The idea by cameras was one that i've had sort of predating lockdown times covid. It was actually really much last year. That i started to get into. This spicing will detail fantastic. So you have some questions for for aden. Yeah aidan so. Why should someone actually used their smartphone over. You know we've got these amazing mirrorless and dsl our cameras or even sometimes people wanna use like their webcam. I i never thought why should we use the smartphone. A good question so tooth started last year. We sent a whole team. A covid happened and people need to to stay at home. Mother things we found is that it's very hard to see people. Clearly on webcams. They had no out of windows. Computers hella webcams but none of them really seem to give very good quality. I was quite frustrated by that. I set out find what the experts us talk to some experts. It seemed like the sort of danzig was to get a camera. Professional carries bro big unit. Bad generally a couple of thousand bucks and i to say frustrates me. I didn't want to have to outfit my colleagues. Dsm answers very few of them had one just like go to thinking about other approaches and i remembered that couple of people that lady gaga fairly recently filmed stupid. Love music video using tyler. The iphone eleven. I'm so we started to experiment and try to see what sort of image quality we could get an realities. These things are broadcast quality. Low that is down to apple's investment in our day but some of the destruction economics just what you can afford to put in a fun. So if you're going to sell a webcam three to four hundred dollars and make profit on that you can't afford to put a sensory. Did that is good enough. And what comes. Just it just never really gonna be broadcast quality. Good enough you where you actually do whereas your webcam can so. That's that was for the start point for trying to come up with a product that let you tap into that broadcast quality camera. The probably already have fantastic. Yeah i mean this is. I will say this i mean i started you know when you mentioned that. It cost a few thousand dollars to get started. I mean here's the thing you buy. Even if the camera is five to six hundred dollars you also want to have the right kind of lens to go with it. You've got to have really good lighting in addition to that you know and then in some cases if you're using a murless dsl. Are you need a capture card and a lot of these. Things aren't cheap. I mean you're talking six hundred dollars camera. Four hundred dollars for lens minimum. You know and then you're talking to capture card talking well over one thousand dollars right there at the start in chances early. We've already paid that thousand dollars for that phone. Which does some really amazing things. I mean i will say love the advancements that I phone for example an android has taken you know with the for example. A three camera system. Now i can. Have you know the the wide angle photo for example. You know. I get the standard lens as well as i think it's a macro lens on their. You know and it's fantastic being able to utilize those when i'm taking photos out and about of things so now being able to bring that to my computer for example my life shrinks up is just to me. It's fantastic to be able to do that. So we basically briefly beginning you create cammo But you know what we all. What were you doing before came. I guess since you said there's been like ten years yes sure so. We had to bunch of products. The is on the the big product. We've we spent a lot of time on his iphone backup extracted and that's essentially probably pay helps you recover lost to delete data from my phone's been very successful at the is still something that were very actively working and yet it's it's thundering has hasn't good recognition but we tend to experiment with building a couple of products each year. We do little scott works experiments. They way see the light of day built many more things than launched. Thai chemical launched fantastic. And it's really cool by the way because you know i probably by the way have used her iphone. Backups extractor software at some point But what's really cool about the fact that you've worked with building for example for iphone at one point now when you move into watching cam. Oh you're already know for the most part hal. The apple ecosystem works. You know what you can get access to what you can't get access to things like that. So i love the idea of just of testing things before you're playing to actually watch something because you never really know where like you could have shipped ten products and now you find the point where at this one product this. Wow this one really you know hits the mark versus the other ones that like you know. They worked great but like the timing. For example like now livestreaming. Everybody wants to use their smartphones. A webcam so this is really cool so Jump over to you. Yeah so Eight what exactly is ranked incubate cammo Why did you create it and What do you think is the problem that that you've really helped solve for live streamers by creating it. Well i think the problem is helping them look like they really look a helping them capture high fidelity video without having to go out and really by anything so at the moment. Of course your your views will see us listeners. Want time and eleven pro. Max not the legacy fund. This one is a little little out at night Let me fairly well environment. I i can do now is i.

How Much Should You Spend on Marketing?

How Much Should You Spend on Marketing?

"Marketing. It's money we have to spend to bring in new customers. It's one of the things a lot of entrepreneurs neglect and they wonder why they're not making enough revenue one. Today's episode. i'm gonna give you a simple formula to know how much to spend to acquire customer. And how much and told to spend every single month on marketing a lot. We will go around doing this the wrong way. They kind of just think. I want to acquire customer in the cheapest way possible or i want to acquire as many customers as possible with the least amount of money. No no no okay. I'm going to save a lot of headaches a lot of time and especially money so this is what you're going through. Your first step is need to understand the ltv of your customer. The lifetime value. How much money on average does each customer spend at your business now. You might be using some sort of Data or revenue analytics tool like profit well or burr. Metrics or chart mogul but to keep things simple. If you don't have one of those tools about the way propolis freeze if you want to check them out. They can integrate with your payment processor. but an easy to figure out. The ltv is to kelly all the revenue you've ever made in your business and divide that by the number of customers you've had so the make things simple. Let's just say. I made one hundred thousand dollars in revenue in my business so far and had a hundred customers if i divide that that means my. Ltv per customer is thousand dollars on average. The amount of money i take from each customer in total is a thousand so some customers will spend more. Some customers will spend less but this is on average thousand dollars per customer. Now this could be because some customers are buying more of your stuff or coming back are staying longer. If it's a subscription service or Are buying up upsells. This all is factored in the ltv. It's an average of how much money you make per customer so this number is really important. Your ltv why because now you know how much you make per customer so every time you get a customer on average you're gonna make a thousand dollars from them in the lifetime of customers rating with you so now you know you need to acquire this customer for less money. You have to factor in how much it costs you to get this customer. Not only in terms of you know maybe add dollars of running facebook ads. But if there's somebody that's on your team that's hired to do this marketing person or using service you have to include that cost too but if you're doing it yourself then we're gonna go straight up the cost to acquire this customer so if you spent two thousand dollars to have a booth at a conference and you got four customers out of conference it costs you five hundred dollars each customer. If you're ltv's thousand that's not bad okay. You doubled but tv's three hundred. You lost the money on acquiring that customer. This why you're ltv is so important to know. How much money are you going to get by acquiring this customer so once you know your ltv you know you have this much wiggle room on acquiring that customer now. I like to at least start by spending twenty five percent of my ltv on the customer. Why because i have other expenses of my business. And i want to be able to skill this as much as possible so if my ltv one thousand. I don't want to spend more than two hundred fifty dollars to acquire that customer. Ltv is four hundred dollars. Then you spend more than one hundred dollars obviously the lower the caq. The customer acquisition cost the better. That means you are getting a tremendous amount of upside tremendous value from that customer with very little cost in your into acquire them. So that's a next thing you need to figure out. How much does it cost you to acquire a customer. Not every channel that you try to Market is gonna get you the same cac so you might run facebook ads and let's say for example. It costs you ten dollars per lead to get A lead and you can convert those into customer at a twenty five percent conversion rate. I mean it cost you. Forty dollars to acquire customer on facebook at you might sponsor a podcast and you have a unique link and that unique link tells you how many customers do get and this is why when it comes to something like sponsorships it's good to experiment and see With a few episodes how well it does. You can understand the caq so that you can double or triple down on this medium on this avenue of marketing.

And she can also weigh in on oprah in the world of two as well. good morning. well angie. I didn't get a chance to watch the interview. Because i was so busy. Following all the ins and outs of this relief package as you would've now headed for. That's my drama. That's my job. The bill is now headed to a final vote in the house. After some last minute. Haggling in the senate over the weekend. Democratic senator joe manchin held up this process for nearly twelve hours as he pushed scale back that boost and jobless benefits the amount will now be three hundred dollars a week instead of four hundred dollars but the last one week longer ending on september the six in addition the first ten thousand two hundred dollars in benefits will be tax free for households. Earning less than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year. Now in the end democrats did hold the line. Pass the bill saturday afternoon. Republicans they also stuck together with every gop. Senator voting against it at the white house later. President biden acknowledged that the politics weren't always pretty but he said the relief was urgently needed. This plant puts us on a path to beating the virus. This plan gives those families who are struggling the most help and the breathing room. They need to get through this moment.

A Look Inside The COVID-19 relief bill Passed By Senate

"The senate passed a one point nine trillion dollar covid nineteen relief. Bill here's what senate by elena abramson the senate on saturday afternoon narrowly passed a one point nine trillion dollar cove nineteen relief package a key milestone for president joe biden to ink his first legislative priority into law the avalanche of federal dollars which clock in at approximately nine percent of the country's gross domestic product includes fourteen hundred dollar checks for middle and lower income. Americans extend unemployment insurance through much of the summer and provides seventy billion dollars to increase vaccine distribution and coronavirus testing. The bill was passed entirely along party. Lines with all senate. Democrats supporting it and all republicans opposing. This nation has suffered too much for much. Too long biden said in remarks from the white house on saturday. Everything in this package is designed to relieve the suffering and to meet the most urgent needs of the nation and put us in a better position to prevail starting with beating this virus and vaccinating the country. The house which already passed version of the bill on february. twenty seventh is slated to vote on the amended. Text on tuesday before sending it to biden's desk so he can sign it into law. Here is a look at six major components of the bill direct payments for millions of americans under the senate plan individuals making up to seventy five thousand dollars in couples. Making up to one hundred. Fifty thousand dollars per year are eligible to receive a fourteen hundred dollar check individuals. Earning between seventy five thousand and eighty thousand dollars and couples. Earning between one hundred fifty thousand dollars. One hundred sixty thousand dollars will receive some of that money but not the full amount. The eligibility thresholds are a change from the house's initial version which kept the threshold at one hundred thousand dollars for individuals and two hundred thousand dollars for couples senate. Democrats lowered the eligibility for the stimulus checks to get all democrats onboard after resistance from some moderates in their party. The decision means that an estimated seventeen million americans who received a check under former president. Donald trump won't get one under biden. According to a study from a nonpartisan institute on taxation and economic policy biden said on saturday that the government will begin sending the checks to eligible americans. This month extended unemployment insurance current federal unemployment benefits. Which a lot an additional three hundred dollars per week on top of state benefits are set to expire on march fourteenth. The senate bill extends the program through september sixth at three hundred dollars per week for households. Earning under one hundred fifty thousand dollars. The first ten thousand two hundred dollars of the unemployment benefits are non taxable to prevent surprise billing at the end of the year. These were also changes from the house version of the bill which provided four hundred dollars per week through all twenty ninth. The reduction in unemployment insurance in the senate version was implemented to ensure moderate senator. Joe manchin a democrat from west. Virginia would not break with his party. According to a democratic aide expanded tax credits for families. The bill raises the child tax credit for most families in the coming year by one thousand dollars to three thousand dollars per child. It's even more for families with young children. Many can receive credit of three thousand six hundred dollars for each child under age six. All of these credits are fully refundable and some researchers say these measures could potentially help cut child poverty and half funding for state and local governments and public schools. The bill delivers a three hundred fifty billion dollar cash infusion to state and local governments and one hundred thirty billion dollars to elementary middle and high schools to help them reopen safely. Local budgets have faced steep declines in revenue as businesses remain shuttered during the pandemic last september. The brookings institute estimated that state and local revenues would decline by one hundred fifty five billion dollars in twenty twenty one hundred sixty seven billion dollars in twenty twenty one and one hundred forty five billion dollars in twenty twenty two. The money for schools is designed to help them improve their ventilation systems. Hire more janitors and reduced class sizes to conform with social distancing protocols. Democrats argued that this money was necessary to save public sector jobs and enable teachers and students to return to classrooms without risking their health. Republicans said that the funding already allocated through. Last year's relief bills was sufficient and that sending more money the state and local governments was superfluous relief for restaurants. The bill includes traditional fifty billion dollars in assistance for small businesses including more than seven billion dollars for the troubled payment protection program and a break from previous relief packages. This bill provides twenty eight point. Six billion dollars in grant relief specifically for restaurants which have been particularly decimated by the pandemic

Senate Holds Longest Vote in History as Democrats Scramble To Save Relief Bill

"Was quite a bit of drama in the senate yesterday where democrats were sort of scrambling to make sure that they had the votes over unemployment benefits and what happened. I think shows right. The slim majority the democrats hold in the power of certain senators. Yeah i mean. Essentially democrats went to the floor and they didn't have the votes and that really rarely happens. Senator joe manchin of west virginia. He's a democrat was an entirely on board with the party's plan for these extended unemployment benefits and he was threatening to vote with republicans on a competing proposal. Dr rail the entire process for about twelve hours yesterday until they finally came up with deal to tweak unemployment benefits to shorten how long they're going to be available for about a month now a lot of republicans just as the benefits were too generous especially with the economy turning around and the mass availability of vaccines expected likely by early summer. The senate did make some significant changes to the version that the house passed. What were those. I think most notably they scrapped the house plan for a fifteen dollar federal minimum wage violated senate budget rules but also it just didn't have enough support among democrats in the senate to pass joe mansion and kirsten cinema arizona. Were both against it. They also tighten the income limits for those fourteen hundred dollar stimulus checks and they'll start phasing out for folks making over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year. They lowered the income threshold. The house bill was more generous and they also made those extended unemployment benefits less generous. They reduce the benefit from an additional four hundred dollars a week to three hundred dollars a week. And they're going to expire now just after labor day instead of the end of september. Do you want to know what the white house has signed off on all these changes that they don't have a problem with it and again. I think it's always important to remind people that the broader contours of this bill is. It's still two trillion dollars nearly in very popular democratic spending proposals. So it's also one of the largest standalone spending bills in history and i think democrats overall see. This is a pretty big victory. Those changes though do me in the house will have to vote again before this gets sent over to the white house for biden signature. When will that happen. it should happen next week. They wanna get this done and send it to president biden by march fourteenth because that's when current extended unemployment benefits expire. It should be able to pass the house leaders. There have been looped in on all these changes. They've been looped in with communications with the white house but there is some frustration among house democrats especially progressive democrats that the benefits in this bill. Were basically cut down because of other democrats new jersey congresswoman bonnie watson said that she was quote disgusted by some of her senate democratic colleagues. She questioned whether she could support the reworked version of the bill. I think that's important because house. Democrats have essentially no margin for error. They can only lose three votes on any party. Line vote and still have it passed so there could be some more drama next week Again bottom line from the democrats. I've talked to you. No one thinks the party itself is going to derail major-party legislation that the top priority for the president and also remember. This bill is hugely popular with the public in recent polling. It's not bipartisan in congress. But it is to voters. And that's a message. That biden has been pressing

The Biden Relief Bill: Who Gets What

"Okay. Who is getting. What in the biden. Bill perio first up is what most adults in. The country are going to get a one time payment of up to fourteen hundred dollars. This is the single biggest part of the bill. And here's where the bill stands. Now if you made less than seventy five thousand dollars either last year or the year before you will get the full amount fourteen hundred bucks beyond that if you made between five thousand and eighty thousand dollars you get a smaller amount and if you made more than eighty thousand dollars you will not get one of these checks for married couples who file their taxes together. The cutoff for getting a check is a combined. Income of one hundred and sixty thousand dollars in these checks are both the biggest and the most universal part of the bill. The exact amount of money that your household will get does depend on a few things in addition to your income. Like whether you have kids or other dependents but even so roughly eighty to ninety percent of all households in the us are gonna get checks for some amount of money and the hope is that people will spend that money to help boost the economy so next step people who are getting money in the stimulus bill. The unemployed four hundred dollars per week on top of what they would normally get from their state in unemployment benefits when there isn't a pandemic and that extra four hundred dollars. A week will last until nearly the end of august and there's a lot of people still claiming unemployment benefits each week almost nine times as many people as a year ago right before the pandemic started. That's more than nineteen million people claiming those benefits right now and a big part of the reason why there are so many is the government has expanded the range of people who can qualify for these benefits during the pandemic and the reason unemployment benefits matter for the overall economy. Is that the allow people to continue spending money while they are between jobs paying their rent buying groceries buying school supplies for their kids yet without the extra four hundred dollars. Unemployment benefits would only replace less than half of a workers lost income on average but with the extra four hundred dollars from the stimulus bill. These benefits will be replacing more than eighty five percent of the lost income for the average unemployed worker up state and local governments. What they're going to get from the bill so tax revenues for a lot of state and local governments have just deride pandemic and some of them have been forced to cut back on services that they typically provide like garbage collection law enforcement mental health and addiction treatment services and a bunch of others state and local governments have also had to lay off one point three million workers especially a lot of workers in public schools teachers administrators janitors. It's one of the hardest hit sectors of the labor market so this bill provides three hundred and fifty billion dollars for state and local governments. And actually that might end up more money than state and local governments lost during the pandemic three hundred and fifty billion dollars is above the range of estimates for how much money state and local governments will have lost through next year. But it's also true that some states and local governments are in worse shape than others and so one of the big debates in the senate is over just how to allocate this money between different states and cities. And we're gonna pass here for a second because if we stop right here just right now out of the cost of those three things that we have discussed the checks that go out to almost everybody. Stimulus checks the bigger unemployment insurance benefits and the money that goes to state and local governments. That is the biggest part of the bill. Roughly half of it around a trillion dollars is going to go to those three things combined yet and there's all kinds of interesting and important stuff and the rest of the bill to so. Here's a few more that we definitely think are worth mentioning. Starting with what parents are gonna get. Yes so parents are going to get an extra fourteen hundred dollars for each of their children and this includes adult children who parents list as their dependence. Yeah so if you are. A family of four people say to spouses and two kids. The total amount. You're gonna get in those one time. Checks is up to fifty six hundred dollars. But that's not all. The bill also increases the size of the child tax credit for one year. So parents will now be able to offset their tax bills by thirty six hundred dollars for each kid under the age of six the really young ones and by three thousand dollars for other kids who are not yet adults bottom line take that same family of four and let's say both parents make less than seventy five thousand dollars each year and let's say their two kids are very young. They're toddlers that family could get a total of nearly thirteen thousand dollars in checks and tax credits because of this bill. Okay and now. Let's look at what schools are going to get kindergarten to twelfth grade. Schools are gonna get roughly one hundred and thirty billion dollars but maybe what's most interesting is what that money is intended for. Yes so this money is not for textbooks. It is for things that make it easier for schools to reopen and operate during the pandemic. So things like improving ventilation buying more personal protective equipment and even changing the shape of a classroom so that social distancing between students is easier next up. The bill includes tens of billions of dollars for loans and grants to businesses and the industry. That's going to get the single biggest amount in grants. So that's money that does not have to be paid back is bars and restaurants yup bars and restaurants. They can prove they lost money. Last year will be eligible for up to ten million dollars each in grants and the bill has set aside a total of twenty five billion dollars for eateries and watering holes and restaurants. And though that is the most any industry is getting in this bill. Some perspective is important here last year. Bars and restaurants lost about a hundred and forty five billion dollars sales from the year before. It's a twenty percent decline and there are still nearly two and a half million fewer jobs in bars and restaurants than before the pandemic and this year knock on wood will not be as bad because people are getting vaccinated. Covid cases are coming down and more of the country is reopening still. That is a huge hole to dig out of

"If you don't have the ability to know prices in the future which you don't wide variation what prices can be. You know what the strip is today but you also know that this does prices in stripped change and oil and gas you have a portfolio of assets you develop at a certain point in time so The common practice in oil and gas. Was you go evaluate your undeveloped territory. And you say. I know that i can have these mini locations. This is subjective. But you know you put in this database. M- mainly is used by areas nate phd when for as evaluation tool and it's with i called her terminate. You set your drilling schedule to to determine the pace of development in those assets to good thing. Exxon hasn't had any problems with this. Yeah exactly right. And on prices you assume prices are going to be some viewpoints. A bias is very much an important part of oil and gas value as your current form of august valuation. So you say. I know the pace of my development. I know what prices are going to be. An i invest on that basis and so in other words you you kind of predict or you mean what the future cash flows of the total. Acid is going to be given a long list of assumption. You make a decision now for a lot of things that you set in stone and say that's how it's going to work out right and like in real life. Nothing works out how you planned. Yeah so my approach to valuing assets with something. I picked up early in my career Which is emerging energy. Was that you when you have a commodity based business you take. You don't know prices ever. But you try to find embedded optionality and by that i mean if you have a quality base business and you have the right to develop a right to do something. It represents an option and everybody's stock option in their portfolio work. Or whatever knows if you have the right but not obligation to do something creates more value than the price that option trades at intrinsically meaning five apple stock at four hundred dollars a share and i have a strike at four dollars a share..

You might have to make some hard decisions and then you know you start running. Well it's it's important. And i feel like from from kind of a faith kingdom mindset that the enemy will use finances in so many ways. I mean statistically they say that half of the divorces in this country could be saved by an additional five hundred dollars a month in income because its finances are such a big deal. And it's the same similar situation with bankruptcies it's like four hundred an extra four hundred dollars a month would save you know like half of the bankruptcies and in this country and so finances are a big deal. It's a huge stressor. We've created it right. We have all these things that we require monthly things and yet you know I mean this is. This is not a for me. This is not a frivolous thing.
