COVID-19 Relief Package Includes Billions For Transportation Sector
"All right how often did you fly. Or maybe the trainer buster in the pandemic. Yeah the transportation sector has been hit hard but anyone who rides in trains planes or automobile should benefit from the one point nine trillion dollar cove relief package. Npr's david schaper reports. It was a year ago this week. The us what unlocked down highways and airports were suddenly almost deserted. People travelling overseas scrambled to get flights home at mass transit. Trains ran nearly empty in the virginia. Suburbs of washington. Dc forty six year old. Sandra vigil had been driving buses packed. with sixty. to seventy people are more. We ended up taking towards the end of march. He was like one two people per ride. If you had any people at all last march twenty ninth vigil says she about ninety five percent of her loudon county. Transit co workers were furloughed. Her's lasted four and a half months and unemployment wasn't enough to make ends meet. A lot of fail behind are not rental car payments. Because he was either eating or paint a car or paying the rent and thing they lakeville transit systems across the country so ridership plummet ninety percent or more in revenue fell with it yet. Mass transit is essential especially for many low wage workers. Again bus driver. Sandra vigil in order to keep the buses running and to keep us working. We needed this money. The relief bill includes thirty billion dollars for transit. It also includes one point seven billion dollars for amtrak enough to bring twelve hundred furloughed employees back to work and restore daily service on long distance routes and there's funding to help states continue fixing crumbling roads and bridges offsetting. They're lost gas tax revenue as for airlines. I have fantastic news year. That's american airline ceo. Doug parker in a video message to employees about the plan which includes another fourteen billion dollars payroll support. That's good news for the thirteen thousand american employees who were facing furloughs april. First so if you have one of those worn out notices we sit out in february. Tear it up. There aren't going to be any furloughs at american airlines in april and with vaccinations on the rise. Hopefully never again. Ceo parker says the last three weeks have been the airlines best. Since the pandemic hit with bookings and passenger volumes up that's happening at other airlines too so much so that after months of hemorrhaging tens of millions of dollars a day the ceo's of delta and united now expect to reduce their daily cash. Burn two zero this month or next while southwest is on track to break even by june. Of course that's relatively easy to do. When tax payers are essentially covering much of your payroll airlines have now received more than fifty billion dollars in federal payroll grants since the start of the pandemic. This was hugely important. And as a pilot for american airlines at spokesman for the pilot's union. The last thing i wanted to be is on our heels when everybody was ready to get back. Flying tiger says if pilots had been furloughed. They need weeks. If not months of training before being able to fly passengers again. You do not want to be staring at the recovery and turning around and seeing the flight deck empty. Because you weren't able to train. The pilots quickly. Enough joe sweet. Herman transportation professor at chicago's depaul university. Says this government aid is crucial is pretty clear that the airlines were such a desire straight federal assistance and a big way we would have lost an airliner to sweden and says the federal aid helps airlines amtrak transit agencies and highway departments continue critical operations while adapting to a post covid world a world that will likely lead to more operational changes in the near.
Inside Biden’s $1.9 Trillion Stimulus Bill
"Start right there with a pass of that. Covid stimulus bill in the senate on saturday night. I do need to preface this by saying it does have to pass the house again because there were some changes made by the senate so it's not passed into law just yet but we'll go for what this bill will include when it goes through the house and i'm going to try my best to sound like i'm not rattling off just a bunch of dollar amounts but there's a danger. It might sound like that but just bear with me. There might be something in there that would be useful for you. Your family someone. So for helping the unemployed it extends that three hundred dollars a week plus the state unemployment end it makes the first ten thousand two hundred dollars of that non taxable for households making less than a hundred and fifty thousand dollars it also fully funds cobra. Health insurance premiums so that employees who have been laid off can remain on their employer plan for free. There's also going to be another round of checks fourteen hundred dollars for a single taxpayer. Twenty eight hundred couples indy. Get fourteen hundred dollars per dependent now the starts to taper off at seventy five thousand for individuals or one hundred and fifty thousand dollars for couples ended completely gets phased out at eighty thousand dollars for a single tax payer and one hundred and sixty thousand dollars for a couple it gives state and local governments three hundred fifty billion dollars to cover expenses related to covid through twenty twenty four gives schools one hundred and thirty billion for k. Through twelve in forty billion dollars for colleges and that's to help them reopen safely so parents can get back to work for businesses. they'll be twenty five billion dollars going to restaurants and bars. This max out at ten million dollars per company in five million dollars per location additionally there will be seven point two five billion for the paycheck protection program once again forty. Six billion dollars will be going to state local and federal governments to help with testing and contact tracing as well as fourteen billion dollars to help speed up. The vaccine distribution for healthcare there will be financial assistance for aca affordable care act premiums and this is just looking to get the number of people covered by insurance to increase into further incentivize. The south to expand medicaid since they're sort of the holdouts town there. The republicans are blocking that there are also increases in tax breaks to parents who have kids up to three thousand dollars per kid if their age six to seventeen and thirty six hundred dollars per kid if they're under six years old and that spread out over the twelve months according to analysis this plus the fourteen hundred dollar check would cut the number of kids in poverty by more than half. In addition there's changes to the earned income tax credit for this year in extends to people without children. And if you're looking for how much that would be for low to moderate income folks. It'll be somewhere between five hundred and forty three dollars in one thousand five hundred and two dollars. Lastly in the rental and homeowner category it gives thirty billion dollars to help low income and unemployed folks afford rent and utilities and at the state level states and tribes get ten billion dollars per homeowners. So all in all. I think thing that really struck me. Was this tweet that i saw saying that. Isn't it kind of crazy. That biden asked for a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal and he got a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal like i think that makes biden a pretty good politician. One of the main criticisms of obama was at he started out by compromising with republicans and gave them the compromise offer in the first place instead of starting out high. You can't say that for biden so far in this could be a sign of good things to come but like. I said they're hoping that this gets signed into law by the end of the week after the house passes it sometime this week.
Interview With Steve Ells
"So there's a famous ted talk by a guy named barry schwartz. It's called the paradox of choice and in it very explains that virtually all kern research on human behavior supports this idea that we humans we don't really like to have too many choices. Anything beyond four to six actually makes us anxious and unhappy which could help explain the success of kepala. Because if you've ever been in one you can probably tell me the menu by heart burrito bowl salad tacos four options. That is it. There isn't a whole lot to agonize over. And it's one of the reasons why you put late just exploded in the two thousands on the eve of the millennium the company had just been more than twenty stores and today cipolla has nearly twenty three hundred locations across the us and in four other countries and its value is around fourteen billion dollars now aaa as you will hear was never meant to become what it became. It was supposed to be a one off burrito joint in denver a joint that would generate enough cash to finance a high end restaurant that was developed as plan. He's actually a classically trained chef and he wanted to make michelin starred food. Not foil wrapped burritos into the earliest recollection. I have of in being in the kitchen and cooking was in the third grave and we lived in germany. And i remember cooking scrambled eggs. Had you make them. Did you scramble the digital crack the eggs into the panel scramble him or did you scrambling before no ice. Scrambled them for With a fork in a bowl. Thank and then. My mom had a a very well. Seasoned cast iron skillet. Nice i mean it was very very smooth and almost nonstick and i used to push the kurds into the center in a square shape. A perfect square. Maybe three by three or three and a half by three and a half something like that and then and then when it was just set enough i would flip it over and I mean it was very controlling. My can says a lot about me. Because i'm a i'm a little bit of a control freak and of course i had no idea then but I was just. It's an interesting. It's an interesting memory. Like what point did you start to a. I've read like stories about you in college where you'd dinner parties and and people like. What is this that you butter you. You'd make like duck con feet and stuff like how did you even know about this. How did you get into foods at such a young age in it well. My mom was a very adventurous cook and a really good one And she had a garden. She got all the cooking magazines and had a lot of cookbooks. And i used to. I used to spend time in the kitchen and And follow along. And at some point. I started watching cooking shows a julia child and graham on the galloping. Gourmet and the pbs series.

Evofem To Launch On-Demand Contraceptive
"Today we're GonNa talk about a company that is trying to commercialize a female contraceptive and the company's called Yvo FEM and their product is called sexy and it's going to be launched actually in the next few days. So I wanNA talk about them as the main story, and then we're going to start with some updates from Gilead O'Donnell as well as bio Merrin and actually we got some news from Amarin today that I'm GonNa touch on just very very briefly because I haven't. Totally incorporated it into my portfolio yet, but we did see some dramatic news from them. So with that, let's get going and the first thing I want to talk about is the Gilead, news that we heard and what we found out is that they were issued a complete response letter for the approval of Phil God's Nib, which was their treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. So, this is a bit of a surprise I would say and Phil God was going to be something that replaces revenue streams that are slowly starting to fall off a patent for Gilliat and they're gonNA start to feel that in the form of loss of revenue and forgotten it was kind of shoe into get approved by the FDA issued them this complete response letter saying that they will not approve the drug unless certain conditions are met and usually when companies receive Sierra L. either it's unconditional in the sense that they don't have any recourse or it has conditions on it and hear what we. Found out that the FDA wanted more data from their face, three Manta and Manta Ray studies before completing its reviewed, the NBA and they're specifically concerned about issues in male sex organs. So Gilead is going to have to provide this data, the FDA before they will approve it, and it looks like from what I looked very briefly on the clinical trials dot Gov site is that the primary completion date isn't until early twenty, twenty one where they final completion date of twenty, twenty four. Now Juliette is pre savvy. So I feel like they'll be able to eventually overcome these hurdles once they provide some data. So I. don't see it being long long-term hindrance of the company, but we've seen the stock get hammered pretty hard since the glory days of remedy severe and in general has been kind of slow to adopt new therapies to their pipeline in order to maintain that growth that people expect. So hopefully, with the approval of Fil gone, they'll be able to replace those drugs that are falling off of patent and be able to maintain their value that way. But personally no position for me from Gilead but I thought it was interesting to point this APP. Nasr Company. I WanNa talk about is by Merrin, and they are trading at a fourteen billion dollar market cap now, and they were also issued a complete response letter for Rock Avian and this was their hemophilia, a gene therapy and I've touched on Hemophilia A and. A number of different videos but I haven't touched the topic in a while. I did notice the CRO though and it's interesting because the conditions that the FDA wanted in order to approve the drug was evidence from two years of data for its ongoing phase three trial to support the durability of the gene therapy. So this is obviously kind of rough for the company because the bar is rarely set this high for other companies that two year window of therapy is going to be maintained. This has me questioning the gene therapy space as a whole that you know other companies that have invested in say route Jenex bio if they're going to have to show two years of data to show that it is a Gerbil effect, this obviously plays into the models and delays the time at which it's GonNa take for them to get revenue. So kind of. makes. Me Nervous about the gene therapy space but you know different diseases seem to have different thresholds for what the FDA wants and it's tough to predict. So thought it was worth bringing up and just for those who are actually following by man, their last phase three patient will complete two years of follow up in November twenty, twenty, one, serve you're expecting revenue from this drug. Now you're GonNa have to wait until twenty, twenty two proudly see any revenue. So that's a disappointment even though the drug does help us significant number of patients. All right. Moving on I WANNA touch on otani therapeutics ticker symbol od T, and they're trading now at around five hundred, seventy, four, million dollar market cap for those that don't remember I, touched on this a while ago they were short candidate that I had once I seemed like they had a run up in the stock for no obvious reason, and then I sold it off in anticipation of run up to this event that we just saw news to, and they're commercializing a tax seen that is given orally. So right now has to be given IV in a lot of complications surrounding that a lot of hurdles that patients he'd go through to get this. Treatment and it's Kinda tedious. So if he can come up with an oral version, it would be much better for patients and that's what Oh Donald Trump do here. So what we heard is that their face three contessa trial achieved primary endpoint and what they were looking at is test attacks will their drug plus bean compared to just capital being alone, and the results showed that the progression free survival was significantly better in the tax will plus Kapustin group rather than just cap aside to being alone nine point eight months versus six point nine months with a hazard ratio of zero point seven to just pretty good and value point zero, zero three.

He applied his quirky provocative sense of humor to the task to here's just one example remember the Peleton ad that went viral in a bad way the one where the poor Peleton wife played by actress Monica, Rees appear to be exercising against her will to satisfy her sexist tons desire for skinny spouse. Well, Reynolds decided to help his career and Tro Peleton at the same time he cast releasing an ad for. In it, she in two friends are sitting at a bar, their nursing MARTINIS.

As Grocery Deliveries Soar, Startup Raises $10 Million to Unseat Giant Instacart
"As a result of COVID, nineteen instinct cart has become the Goliath of grocery delivery businesses as virus fears. Keep us out of grocery stores. We've been relying on food delivery mainly, INSTA- carts GIG workers called shoppers to keep a stocked up. This April INSTA- cart sales were five times greater than a year ago the Financial Times reported that I've popping growth hardly escaped. Investors Notice INSTA-. Cart raised another two hundred twenty five million dollars earlier this month that evaluation, approaching fourteen billion dollars. That's nearly double its valuation only eighteen months ago, perhaps needless to say instant carts thirty-three-year-old. A poor va mater is now a billionaire. But less you jump to the conclusion that Mehta can sit back and relax safe in his seat at the top of this rapidly growing industry. Thank again. A small startup called Ling is coming rich share of the grocery delivery business, though tiny compared to Insta- card investors are also taking notice last week dumpling raise six point five million dollars for a total of ten million dollars in funding so far founded in two thousand seventeen dumpling helps people create independent delivery businesses, the difference between shopping for instance card and dumpling is simple, but fundamental dumpling delivery workers own their own businesses Insta- cart workers are subcontractors paid by the shopping trip. Dumplings Co CEO's Joel. Shapiro Innate Danna make no bones about what motivated them to create dumpling. They felt sharing economy companies like Insta- card were treating workers on fairly so they created an APP that helps perspective entrepreneurs go into business for themselves to create a new business users pay a ten dollar fee for access to dumplings services and listing on the company's site where customers can search for shoppers. Bhai Zip Code. Shoppers paid dumpling a five dollar fee for each job or when they get busy enough switched to a monthly payment of thirty nine dollars. Dumplings model is not unlike Amazon's two year old partner delivery service, which also helps people start their own businesses in their case exclusively delivering Amazon packages supporters of the independent model say self employment in the delivery industry offers a number of advantages including higher revenue and insulation from the anti-god worker legislation that's cropping up all over the country so far fueled in part by the pandemic. The models seems to be working dumplings. Founders say customers or ordering twenty times more groceries than they were before in nineteen, and the company says it has helped. Two thousand people start their own delivery companies people. People like Kelly Vilchez in Orange County California. Vilchez operates under the business name shop girl. Oh, see. She told the L. A. Times that she's earning three to five thousand dollars a month. She's clearly a dumpling success story. According to the shop girl OC facebook page villages is featured in dumplings advertising campaign in contrast Insta- card has been plagued by shopper complaints since the onset of the coronavirus in March and April, many walked off the job, demanding better protection against Covid, nineteen higher tips and sick leave the Winston card initially claimed the strikes made no impact. Courts reporter Michelle Chang Rights. That's debatable on June. Fifteenth the Seattle. City Council voted unanimously to require that. GIG were companies like Insta- card and Grub pay their workers an extra two dollars and fifty cents hazard pay per order. That requirement is intended to last through the end of the COVID nineteen civil emergency declared by Seattle's mayor. Insecure has vowed a legal fight. Similar legislation is pending in Philadelphia New York and San Francisco Chang writes. It is these sorts of ills shortages of personal protective equipment, low pay and lack of sickly. The dumpling claimed self employment solves, but entrepreneurship isn't easy dumpling delivery workers have to do their own marketing and find their own customers, and they're on the hook. If grocery buyers failed to pay, which dumpling says is rare, that said any platform that helps the millions of unemployed grow their own wealth. Is appealing to investors, and it's interesting to note that dumplings mission says nothing specifically about the grocery business rather they say. We WanNA. Make dumpling trusted partner that helps anyone launched running grow their own service based business. Sure dumpling starting groceries. Be Questions. Where will they go next?
Tractor Supply stock jumps after company forecasts 'record-breaking' sales, profit
"We're GONNA start with tractor supply tractor supply which is one of those businesses just like it sounds there in the farm supply business and shares of tractor supply up this morning basically because they they updated their guidance for the second quarter. This is you tell me is was the guidance that good or is part of what we're seeing with the stock just enthusiasm from some institutional investors who are thrilled that accompany any company is actually updating guidance. When we're in this period of time when so many companies are withdrawing it all together It could be a little bit of the ladder Giving updated guidance this earlier still a month ago in in the second quarter so To give the guidance that they expect tractor supply expects Same store sales growth of twenty to twenty five percent With the two thirds of time period down but It's you know it's an extraordinarily big number and caused as everything is right now by The environment Covid and they're just in the right place at the right time. Also they did a number of things Before this all started that put them in position to take advantage of Of this time Having gone further on their The buy buy online. Pick UP IN STORE program which is one which more and more people are using Not only attractors but other places and just twenty to twenty five percent. Same store sales growth for the quarter is The reason the stock's up five percent. Today this is not a particularly big company Just if you look at the overall market cap around thirteen fourteen billion dollars is tractor supply one of those businesses because there had been stretches of time where this has been a great stock to own d look at tractor supply as one of those operators that is an acquisition candidate. Would it make sense for like a Walmart to just go out and make them an offer? They seem to do a pretty good job of serving their base of customers. Yeah they've got a great record with customer focus and I don't know that they the plenty of places I I suppose could work their operations into their own but I don't think that their identity Would do well under that. They they are Advertising themselves serving the the lifestyle out there are out here. I guess and it's of course. More people are spending more time away from cities and our maybe planning on spending large chunks of of the summer
How are colleges spending their relief money from the CARES act?
"How're colleges spending their relief money from the federal government Congress set aside fourteen billion dollars for colleges universities and their students and it matters a lot how to use that money colleges not only shut down this spring but face uncertainty about the fall semester the president of Brown University told us recently that some universities could go out of business if they fail to reopen this fall NPR's listen that warning is been following the money good morning good morning what our education leaders saying about that fourteen billion dollars that they received so from the beginning if they said fourteen billion was not enough the American council on education hired lobbying group called the money willfully inadequate we're seeing colleges with massive budget shortfalls there's hiring freezes and furloughs and cuts to programs although there is a fourteen billion dollars where is the money going so the majority of that money was in a bucket of about twelve point five billion dollars that went directly to college as the law requires that each school give half that money directly to students whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic they're facing financial challenges struggling to make ends meet and will not as interesting so the universities don't necessarily get a lot for teacher salaries or something like that the students get a lot of what seems like a lot are they benefiting so it really depends on what school you go to whether or not you've seen that money yet so it's been up to the schools to distribute the money which means they make an application they decide who gets that and there's a lot of need right now in college campuses and there's only so much money in the pot and then there's this larger question about eligibility so several weeks ago that department said only students who are eligible for federal student aid were allowed to get the coronavirus relief that essentially in excludes international students and undocumented students including those protected under daca mmhm and the community college system in California has actually sued education secretary Betsy to boss over those restrictions calling them arbitrary and unlawful but the entertainment told NPR in a statement that if Congress wanted to include non US citizens they would have explicitly said so I'm glad you mentioned education education secretary device because she's been a subject of some of your other reporting on a portion of the cures act this relief bill that is used to have been used to boost small private colleges what's the news there that's right so there was a bucket of money a smaller back about three hundred and fifty million for it the secretary to top of schools that haven't gotten much relief from other parts of the bill and we now know that money went mostly to small private schools many of them religious so one example is wind Brenner theological seminary in Ohio they have about a hundred fifty students certificates and graduate degrees they're in the process of receiving about half a million dollars prince please when the president there told me it'll be about a third of their budget for next year and they plan to use that to offset tuition we are smaller school we have a very focused mission it's too quick leaders for service in god's kingdom which is not a shared mission however possibility in the number of students we could reach through eight seventy that these fungal while you know this comes at a time when public colleges especially community colleges are really hurting these are tens of thousands of students and that's in comparison to the smaller some schools that serve you know in some cases a hundred students okay so questions about the distribution of the money and the amount as well and we'll surely hear more on this subject listen thanks

Lululemon Athletica: Chip Wilson (2018)
"So it used to be that the clothes you wore to the gym. Were like the absolute worst clothes you owned. You know the radio T. shirt. You got for free at some event sweatpants with your high school logo. You know the kind of short shorts Dr J. would have worn on the basketball court anyway. Most of this apparel was cotton-based Baggy. Didn't look so great in honestly. Nobody really cared. You had one job to do which was to sweat at the gym but at some point in the past ten or fifteen years all of that changed because suddenly the clothes you wore to work out. We're also the clothes you can wear to the grocery store or at a restaurant or even at work so for better or worse people were wearing their gym clothes outside of the gym on purpose and this trend it was called at leisure and chip Wilson. He was one of its pioneers. The brand he built out of his house in Vancouver is now worth more than fourteen billion dollars. Now before I go on let me just address. The elephant in the room chip has said some things that are well. How do I put this rude and Borish? He's put his foot in his mouth on several occasions. He's embarrassed the company and you will hear about some of that later on in the show. But he's also an open book and open to getting grilled all about his life. He's not a cautious media. Trains soundbites guy which is in part. What makes him interesting? Because that's sort of how chip grew up without any pretension middle class. Kid and Calgary. Canada chip was athletic. He played hockey and football. His Dad taught phys ed at the local high school and his mom was a seamstress she lived for it. It's were total passion was. She tried to make clothing for the kids. But of course we didn't. We'd never liked what she made for us. But you know if I want to spend time with my mom. It had to be editor foot in the sewing room. Until did you learn how to sew like from an early age. I can definitely so but more so I think it was working with the butterick patterns and watching my mum lay them down on the fabric and then and then how she moved them and twisted them in order to save fabric. I always say how important that is because once I got into big production and you'd lay fifty to one hundred layers of fabric down when you can save even five six seven inches a fabric that can mean thousands of dollars now before chip would go onto so and designed clothes for a living. He actually got his first real job at an oil company working a grueling incredibly lucrative job on the Alaska oil pipeline for almost two years. How much did you walk away with? How much cash interesting in? Today's dollars probably about six hundred thousand one hundred seventy five thousand. American is amazing amazing. Nineteen you were just given this cash. And that's simply because there was all this money to work on the Alaska oil by blood. I guess right and trade my life in for money I mean there was no girls. There was nothing there except for work so I also wonder you know if everyone got that opportunity with they have made the same thing out of it. I did a pretty good use your eighteen nineteen or twenty with a bunch of cash. So what did you? What did you do with the money? Well it all had three goals in Alaska when stolen my own house by the age of twenty To be in my own business by the age of thirty and retired by forty and retirement meaning that I was doing exactly what I wanted to do so so I did. I bought a house and then I Finished up my degree and I worked for an oil company. And this is an oil company Second in Calgary right because you you moved back there some Roy right and I guess in like the late seventies right Pretty much at around the time you graduate college or you start to make shorts like baggy shorts for men year. Because I didn't have to get it what it was like. At that time. Men were very short shorts. That were very very tight. You know you only have to look at movies from from the late seventies to get that kind of picture and And they made a lot of sense to me because I had very big legs and I was. I think because I was working out three times a day. I was always in a constant sweat and the idea of wearing shorts. Full-time was very appealing to me. Yeah and so you and these were like flower printed like loud Hawaiian like trader. Joe's like those shirts like that's what the shorts looked like. Yeah exactly but we have to see it in context that there was nothing like that before everything else. Was that era of Brown rust off color. Okra yellow like solid colors. There was no brightness in the world at all that time so that was a radical. Look so I started because I couldn't get loud flowered prints in two thousand meters which is kind of what a person needs to go into business. I started doing what my mom did. She quilted fabric so I would get masses of different types of patterns of fabric and then cut them into squares and then I would quilt them and then in order to keep the stability that I put up packing on it of black fabric. And then I realized I had reversible shorts so normally were they long and Begi and reversible. They just really revolutionized shorts. And then the skateboarder started taking them on because it kind of covers their knees even know about them. Did you start to sell them somewhere? Well I mean that's the invention of vertical retailing because I made about three hundred pairs of shorts up in nineteen eighty and I went to the big department stores here in Canada and they would have nothing to do with them so I had my first inventory problem so I thought what am I going to do so I basically set up a lemonade. Stand for the shorts. And in in Calgary in the downtown mall at Calgary and I had a partner girlfriend at the time and so we did that together and we would lay all the shorts out and then they would make like a thousand dollars a day selling the shorts and has making like a hundred and twenty dollars the oil company so it was tough to figure out the math of that and what these will not swimming shorts. What who would wear the shorts? What would you be doing while wearing shorts? Well these particular shorts you know. I couldn't release. It was tough in the oil business of conservative Calgary where people were practice suits and cowboy boots to them on loud begi shorts and so I originally called them barbecue shorts because I needed to give men needed an excuse to wear them. I knew they wanted to wear them. But as you know a couple of years went on and that's again that's when the skateboarding market took over from the surf market and the young boys you know like tend to eighteen started wearing them so this is this is one thousand. Nine hundred eighty. You've got barbecue shorts by the way the barbecue season in Calgary fairly short like a couple of weeks again forty days forty days. You've forty days or these shorts. And Calgary I mean not a brilliant marketing move but it worked people were like our barbecue and so nineteen eighty and then but at the same time you were still working for this oil company on the side or or. You're doing this and how long before you quit the oil company. Well ahead my goal of quitting being in my own business by thirty so I worked through company for five years and quit on my birthday. Your thirtieth birthday exactly. Did you create brand? Around around the barbecue shorts. Yeah I I called it. West Beach Which at the time was I think it's probably from being in San Diego whereas young and probably the the incredible feeling I had from living on the beach every day minute a little bit. Yeah when I was a little kid. And I being in Calgary. All's wanted to get back to the beach. I want to get back to the west coast. I think that's where I felt best. So that was the brand I built up around
What's Next for Bombardier?
"It's been a big month not just for Birdie but for business aviation in general. By months I mean. Basically since January sixteenth until February seventeenth. There was all kinds of speculation. About what bombard he was GONNA do. Because January sixteenth. They came out with a warning to Wall Street and they said first of all our twenty one thousand nine financial results are going to be so great. But that's not the biggest news. The biggest news is we're going to do something to our business portfolio. We just don't know yet and that got everybody going. As to what the possibilities or in the possibilities were bombarded currently exists with two divisions a business aviation division and in bigger train related division of trade related they make everything from actual trains to signaling products that go along with the railway system and so turned out. They were shopping. Both of them out to see which one could get the better deal and on February thirteenth. We heard the actual financial results for the year. And they of course. We're not as great as once hoped but more importantly what the. Marta announced that it was selling the rest of it. Eight to twenty stake to Airbus the eight to twenty is the series that Bernier originally developed and they were going to sell this now. They're remaining speak. They'd already sold part of it. They're going to sell the remaining of it for about five hundred fifty million dollars in cash and what that means is Airbus gets to walk away with the whole former C. series. Now the eight to twenty is entirely in its control and then four days later on February seventeen bombard. Ea announced it had reached a deal to sell its train. Division notice bombarded transportation to also come of France also is one of the two big train makers based in Europe Siemens being the other one and long story short. They're going to sell this for. They're going to sell the training division for up to four and a half billion dollars which does sound like a lot of money but then again you're talking about businesses that have more than fourteen billion dollars backlog or annual work and so it's it was a pretty much a fair deal all around and for Bardy what it does is it brings a desperately needed money. That bombarda was running out of Because it has a major debt payment next year and had to make the more importantly it had this huge debt pile of more than nine billion dollars that it faced with no real great business plan to help to pay it off now to getting out of the train business. And it's getting out of eight to twenty. It's going to be business aviation only and it's GonNa have half the that it used to have. So what does that mean for bombarding going forward? Let's say some big space so this money going trump's ideas trouble having trouble wild -veloping because he went way over. Budget and and Airbus Boeing basically were playing competitive games so they couldn't get a huge hole so they brought in a new CEO about Bellemare and they launched a five year plan and they've been sort of on that plan selling everything everything. They've acquired over the last three decades. They've been selling off to judge as part of this plan. How quick can you name them? All CR J sold off candidates. They've sold off the Canada's down view PLA. They've sold off. Sra Damn Cameras Downfield. They've sold of Canada. They sold off the would bomb. They sold off the out. J. Them Nestled on twenty with pupils. One hundred hundred let themselves with the business championships. Actually with you. Get back to nine hundred eighty six. I started when the quad candidate. And they're still making the challenge but anyway southern this strategy this five year turnaround plan and the idea was by the end of twenty twenty. They would have they'd be you know they'd be back into having SPEC CASH. They could use to pay down the debt right. So we're all tracking along this way. And of course the rail business going to ride together just contractual delivery troubles so they have all of a sudden at twenty twenty figgers way. Wonky and it was so fun to read the Michael Story because the apple is so McCall was saying he segment strategy. This is not strategy. Ain't just has been almost fire sale. Just keep so to say that. I've been thinking about this philosophy days sadly I've been thinking this philosophy and it's like watching a horror movie right. We have saved these. Don't go into that darkened room with taps which don't turn your back on the camera. Don't gain that car in the history of bodies don't stretch the J. develop a new airborne. Don't leave your regional airline customer base behind to develop an airliner. Don't try to yourself that you're not competing with the HIP Hustler. Unless you all of this thinking I really still don't WanNa get in that car bombarded. They are now very focused on business. Va Shin. But I'm this is not the end of the store.

"And this is a very key part of their new initiative to watch a lot of services to augment slowed sales of the iPhone in other hardware products and so what we're reporting now was a launch between the end of October and November so the next few months or so and one of the price points even considering internally is nine ninety nine a month which would line up with apple music an apple news plus but I actually think it's going to come in quite below that in the end given they really don't have the content library like Netflix Amazon Disney half which would be less than that flexing Disney's starting out low as while seven ninety seven dollars about right so about the price the ten A. B. square in the middle but I think it's going to come in quite a bit lower in there's going to be discounts free trials and bundles in all sorts of stuff to offset that you know apple services really right now at least not up to par with the likes of Netflix Amazon and dizzy yes he's reporting that apple is spending about six billion dollars set setting aside six billion dollars to spend on original content and that you know two seasons of the morning show this you know much anticipated show with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon that's three hundred million dollars a lot what we know about how much apples really right if we knew initially and this was as of a couple of years ago apple set aside at least a billion dollars to pursue this but what they found out during the development of the show's needing the top talent from folk rock Steven Spielberg of course like you said Jennifer Aniston Reese Witherspoon that costs a lot of money it SO three hundred million dollars on two seasons you do the math getting to six and should not be you know so difficult and I've seen a few people being skeptical about that number but it does make sense it also makes sense why apple one want that number out there because it sets extremely high expectations what bush as cuties Dan I'm joining us on the phone who of course covers apple Dan would make of some of these new details in a way that a possible price the unveiling of the service in November and apple spending six billion dollars on original content compared to Netflix which is about fourteen billion dollars of course for apple this is you could say just experiment still or or a side business while as well that's Netflix's bread and butter I'm no doubt a minute thing right now apple needed to signify a step up content and I think this is all about the drum roll in for me for a week earlier this year I mean we believe either the services business but we think the opportunity here the hundred million consumers the next three to four years and that's really the golden goose for cooking Cupertino five point out this is the median to cater for right now and services that he did the group can you please really feel on the engine for apple going forward meantime mark apple card now available I know some folks who've already signed up they say a super simple straightforward process maybe that's only if you have good credit I don't know yeah the you've got yours but how has the rollout band so this is this is the model car everyone is asking about that you know the cash back today it was an interesting announcement three percent back on Hoover which makes it very competitive and if they're going to do more of these deals that's what I mean this is a great card and no annual fee for a lot of people so to mystic are you about apple cart I apple cart.

Unpacking DoorDash's $410M Caviar acquisition
"Some big drop that we couldn't help but dig into which is that door dash which we talked about a long show is buying caviar which we haven't from square which never mentioned so I have a lot of questions gate but what is the gist of this deal yeah. Unfortunately I think I have more questions than answers at this point but I do love and we get to talk about breaking news is very exciting. Okay so about an hour ago. Jordache announced it had reached an agreement with square to purchase caviar which is the on on-demand food delivery and catering business from square for four hundred ten million in cash and stock so right now. We don't know how much of that deal is cash. And how much are that dealer Stock Alex. Do you have a guess as to which would be the majority will I would always say in a situation like this. The majority is going to be stock because every company to conserve cash as much as they can't. They lose money and we know Jordache does but we also know that door. Dash has raised a kind of astounding amount of private capital in the last twelve months. It's raised. I think goods one point two five billion in the last twelve months give or take so if they had to be more cash kate they could but I believe the original sale of caviar to square was all stock doc so I wouldn't be surprised if stock was the majority of the transaction yeah I agree. I mean Jordache has to be one of the most well capitalized private businesses that there is in the market today so you know they certainly are sitting on just mountains and mountains of cash so they have the ability to do that so the acquisition isn't surprising but you know I think and people were surprised and I know I was by them purchasing caviar because it already was owned by square and there are plenty of other businesses that it could have acquired in this food delivery space and I. I think we all expect consolidation. That just wasn't really the deal that I saw coming. I mean we're you surprised by this. I hadn't even heard the demers rumor that square wanted to get rid of caviar. Let alone that it was going to sell it for this amount of money because if you go back in time to two thousand sixteen square one and to off load caviar but it couldn't find a buyer even at a one hundred million dollars price tag so three years ago they were going to drop it for a quarter of what it so thwarts day and they couldn't find someone to pick it off their hands here comes door dash and okay so gently with a whole bunch of respect to people who have numbers that I don't it feels a bit like the overpaid yeah. I think we're in agreement. I'm a bit skeptical as to why they would pay four hundred ten million dollars. It's funny so you know going back in time. A Little Bit Square bought caviar five years ago and what you mentioned ninety ninety million dollars stockdale caviar emerged around same time. A lot of companies were were launching in the food delivery space like I was just doing some research you know a few minutes ago and caviar our sold square only a couple of months after they raised. I think it was like a thirteen million dollars series and just in that same couple of months post mates raised a six till sixteen million dollars series B so very interesting choosing to see like how both caviar on post may have evolved now post mates is getting ready to go public on its own at least that's what we're expecting and caviar is now changing hands with the second time will well. I mean ironically. I think we're GONNA see Caviar. Go public via door dash when Dora she eventually does go public and we were talking a little bit before the show in the question was when and so when I'm thinking I._P._O.. Timing I kind of consider like market conditions are favorable which could try people in the company raised. A lot of money. Recently can push an I._P._O.. <music> out or if you bought something that can also delay <unk> kind of an I._P._O.. And sorry well you can digest the acquisition but in this case I don't actually know how the three things triangulate into figuring you're not wind Jordache will eventually go but it has to worth twelve point six billion dollars right so it's one of the most valuable companies will go public. I'm guessing next year but so they just raised. I know you mentioned. They'd raised over a billion dollars in the last year alone but I was there. Last round was at a series G. I know we're working our way through the alphabet. At this point I think it was serious. Gene they as a two hundred and fifty million dollar round about a year ago there is a fourteen billion dollar round in February if memory holds up and is six hundred million dollar round in May so it's been bonkers <unk> over a door dash yeah and I mean I'm sure a lot of that. Capital raising is as a result of the fact that there's so much money in the market. They know they can bring it in there like let's do all they can but like you Dash May or may not be and just get a sense of like how much money they've been throwing out the window yeah well they would say invest they would quibble with your investing in growth. Here's here's one last year we should move onto the next story but <hes> do you recall when we were talking about actually even before you run the show Heck luck and coffee when they were first blowing up and raising piles house of money they were growing like you wouldn't believe they're growing. It feels Jordache is now and the mcgarth E. S. one and it was super unprofitable because it was so expensive zip and so I'm curious it. We'll see this company end up having a similar looking document other with different expenses because luck was stores one yeah yeah. I don't know I mean door. Dash is one of those companies is that I feel like behind closed doors. V._C.'s are like you wouldn't believe the growth and so all you hear is that and you're like wow they must have must have so many customers they they must be making so much money but then yeah I think when you end up actually looking at the year like okay so this is what people were so excited about like these thought that Uber was going to be doomed without Travis Stratos all right. They're not always correct so many many things but they're not always correct so perhaps in this case will be

Is that the Star Wars galaxy edge could pump fourteen billion dollars into the region's economy, over forty years. Which okay, I, although I don't know how much fourteen additional. I don't know. Because here's the thing isn't Disneyland packed all the time, anyway. And the money is spent although maybe they're talking about the sales tax on a two hundred dollar lightsaber, and affording dollar flight of beer as the Nathan Jason Jason Nathanson said earlier when he's at Disneyland for us. Well for him and then reported but I so it's, it's, it's crazy making it really is. I'm not gonna go just too crowded. John is going. He'll be there Sunday morning. I think he's shows up at four AM.

"That have not fully disclosed the depth of the problems at the organization for a variety of reasons. Does this just sort of confirmed that nothing on that front has dramatically changed and that these surprises will keep coming? Well that that is. Is part of it. People are hanging their hat on. You know, this is this is a, you know, an honest guy a really good operator. He's going to he's going to give us the details. And this was like dropping a bomb, and but the second one is power power. You know, it's gonna it's taking longer to get his arms around it. I don't have any doubt that he will. But power is going to be worse this year. And again, some of that could is disclosed they these are very long term contracts. They did very bad contracts over the last few years just to get orders on the books, and guess what? Now, they've got to ship them, and they're shipping. Very probably some some deals at at losses, and that's going to be a multi year workout, you know, kinda like an engineering construction company a bad contract and takes years to work through the backlog. Right. But then also, you know, the cost structure is not anywhere near in line with where revenues revenue today, and that's ongoing. He they laid off twenty four thousand people not divisional almost year. They've cut a number of plant. It's not enough. So that's what he's telling us. They have to do more. Okay. So let's now they've done. That in terms of the the the restructuring and the company, do you think that they are done with that in terms of selling I guess people call non-core assets are the assets that GE has today is that it now they still have about fourteen billion in stock ownership of Baker Hughes that businesses already off line. It's being run independently. But they have a fourteen billion dollar ownership there. They have about another four billion that they can get out of the web tech business that they sold and then it's going to be smaller units. I think from here, but even in the power division. There's two pieces now that the the non gas piece their stuff in there that they can sell. But I think the big stuff is is probably behind us. So all right. So I, of course, I'm sorry. I I'm very focused on the debt side of this just because that is the nature of my DNA. That is I'm sorry. It is who I am. I'm looking right now General Electric perpetual, bonds five percent debt is the biggest loser. Among the investment grade universe today. Another decline in price that means higher. Implied borrowing costs how crucial is it. The General Electric gets its act together, and is able to give better disclosure, and frankly, a better view into just how much more Consol in the valuations that'll be able to achieve in order to avoid paying criminally high interest rates are prohibitively high interest rates and potential downgrade. Well, I think they bought some time with that twenty billion dollar asset sale that they announced last week that will significantly help the debt burden..

If you could if you could make that arrangement. I think a lot of people would before it. Thanks, larry. Dishes that nobody you can't stuggling to happen. But it would be great. It would be great. If you could if you could allow these states that choose to do this. To suffer the consequences. All right. If that's what you wanna do.

It's just that that arrangements never going to be made. But I agree with your initial statement. Thanks for the call, by the way, Larry that the Democrats aren't ever going to they're never gonna vote for border security. So how is this ever going to happen? What is the actual solution? Is there an actual solution to this? Is there something that we can actually do something that will be done in order to rectify the situation? It looks like to me the only way and I'm not in favor of it. The only way to do this is through executive order because. Yeah, Democrats aren't gonna they're not gonna do it. Trump's talking about reallocating money moving at around. Oh, you know, what another possibility is this is kind of weird then I think they could do this. They seized fourteen billion dollars from El Chapo, okay? Yeah. Drug kingpin of the Sinoloa. Cartel. They took a fourteen billion that he had in the Bank and seized it. Well, couldn't you use that to build the wall. You got one point three seven five billion allocated. So you're talking about almost sixteen billion dollars. That'll get you two thirds of the way. They're do it. Do it. What would be wrong with that? We use drug money to build the wall, and that somebody who uses for gone through due process, right beating another country, but still. I'm no you went through the process here. That was here. I'm sorry. Yeah. No. Let's do this to New York it happened. That's frightening thinking, okay. So he's been sentenced to life in prison. You need the money must he's going to buy a lot of cigarettes. They do they do the soom. He's going to continue to run the cartel from prison. I don't know how these guys do that.

"Welcome back half, my brain tied behind my back just to make it. And here is Vincent in Al gun. Quin illinois. Vincent, welcome. Great to have you here with us. Thank you Roche. I appreciate that. Listen, why are we not putting more Otis Mexico for these drug problems and the immigration problems? The president has enormous power and he can act I think without congress. You know, the drug problem is a. It is a fascinating thing. Let's I ask you a question about leaning on Mexico to do something about it. I have some thoughts on that. But you know, you look at. El Chapo, fourteen billion dollars seized when you stop and think of the. I don't I don't think we can. I don't think we have the ability to visualize the amount of drugs that are pouring into the country. And let's be honest about something. This is a demand side problem, then you can sit there and blame the El Chapo is of the world. All you want the Esco bars and all that. But if there weren't a demand and the demand is directly related to addiction. And more and more people are are becoming addicted to this stuff, and it is literally destroying. The major cities of California, Los Angeles. And this is not spoken of publicly in respectable media. San Francisco somewhat. But San Francisco people who live there, I think I'm just become immune to him. It's it's part of walking around town every day to see. Homeless people shooting up doing whatever they do to take drugs sleeping on the streets, and so forth the piles of human feces. The cops have given up arresting people for defecating and urinating in public. It's become common in many parts of the city. The upscale areas the financial district the hotels, they do their best to keep the area's clean. But in the rest of the city's Los Angeles city hall has a rat. Infestation problem that nobody talks about. Rats homeless problem. San francisco. Same thing in these reach cities are wealthy wealthy. California's a wealthy state. But it is a bifurcation that state. It's you talk about the gap between the haves and have nots California would lead the league here. Maybe New York neck and neck with them. And what are they have in common? They have been run by liberal socialists for at least a generation. And they are hell holes in many spots of these really wants beautiful cities. And drugs is one of the primary problems homelessness is another. The cost of housing. I've got a story here in the stack about people leaving Los Angeles people leaving California the numbers of people leaving it huge. And it's led by millennials because they can't find affordable places to live, and there's a picture of a millennial couple walking up the steps of a house that's for sale, and it is a veritable shack. And it's it's it's been trending this way. It's it hasn't been cheap to buy a house in California since the eighties, but the gap has been widening and the the possibility the ability to get into any kind of starter home young people it isn't there. And so people aren't leaving California in droves, California doesn't like to talk about it. One of the reasons is taxes the overall high cost of living, but you cannot you cannot remove from that equation the effects of wants an illegal immigration combined with homelessness and the drug problem and the overall breakdown of any kind of economic order. I it's. Serious problems. So what role do you want to assign to Mexico here? What what responsibility? Do they have in stopping it? The question. I would have is. And don't get mad at this. Because I'm sure some of you would be shouting an answer. But when you get right down what what about it is their problem? Yeah. That's where the drug cartels are. And they have a responsibility for keeping them in check and putting them in jail and so forth, and they don't do that very well. But to take us out of the equation. It'd be a mistake to we've we've got responsibility for dealing with this. And I think all of this is directly related to what? Daniel Patrick Moynihan said way way back in the nineteen seventies came up with this full Lhasa fee that describes our inability to maintain standards. It's called defining deviancy down. You try as hard as you can you have a set of laws and a and a moral code, and you have right and wrong, and legal and illegal, and as more and more people start engaging in what society says is wrong and illegal. You finally give up trying to stop it. Because so many people are doing it. So you just you declare that aborate behavior normal, and you have just defined deviancy down. You have just expanded the legal aspects of deviant behavior, and you keep doing this over and over and over you. Now, you get to the point where the cops don't even address people shooting up don't even arrest them. Might be looking for suppliers in this kind of thing. But the users oftentimes are are ignored. The the idea to to get Mexico to participate misses something I think has. Probably been part of foreign policy efforts for who knows how long but not much progress is being made. I just don't know how much you know, how how long can something like this degradation. Go on before it starts to have a natural impact on the country at large in terms of societal decline. Morality decline economic decline. And they're never appears to be any kind of a political price to pay for it. The people who have presided over. Rampant increases in homelessness and. All of this other public behavior to simply unacceptable continue to get reelected. And in these liberal outposts, we extend sympathy and excuses and understanding for this behavior, and we exonerate people are actually perpetrators are under the premise that they're victims of something. And so we look elsewhere to fix blame. And that elsewhere usually it's way to Republicans and conservatives it'd be too rigid too inflexible. Not enough compassion. But it's a serious serious problem that really gets it's gets swept under the rug or its jets joked about but for crying out loud. There are maps in San Francisco for tourists. So that they can void the massive piles of human feces, we laugh at this stop and think about this in real terms. I still laugh about okay? So laugh about it. Look easy. Rush on the network.

I know I know especially if he was like doing drugs to which who knows to them. I feel like if you're selling of you're doing them to most often. Yeah. Yeah. Who knows unless I feel like there's always eighty of like, you don't get into your own exactly the, but who knows allegedly here and duly fourteen billion dollars as the kingpin of this drug cartel. Wow. He of the cartel, and he is being accused of doing this employed planes boats and submarines to move hundreds of tons of Colombian coke. Cain into Mexico before then shipping it into the US and distribution hubs in the US. He's as submarine. Yes. Votes in planes, like everybody else has those no private Paul the normal cartels. Right. They says Some Marines. Wow. Yeah. That's insane. That oh. Strategy. I mean, he obviously had a flair for style. Right. Exactly. He apparently oversaw the smuggling of cocaine heroin, meth, methamphetamines and not talk today. Peta means marijuana and all of that wholesale distribution into Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, New York, Arizona in Los Angeles. So, of course, all the main city, and he is also accused of taking part in at least thirty killings as he reigned over one of the oldest and most influential cartels. Wow. Yeah. Yeah. Oh my gosh. So as we stated like he his defense trying to say that he is now responsible since it's gone on since he's been in prison as the defense is trying to place the blame on the continuing drug trade on. It's my l l miles umbanda who was actually Guzman's right hand, man. And then I also read that it's my l it's been told that after he steps down his sons, we'll take over. Okay. Did he has four sons and people have wondered if it would be Guzman sons says guthman son or is mile sons, but they say that right now since this my L is controlling it would probably be his sons right because they're like they've been raised in the business as long as goose been out. Yeah. Well, I feel like guthman would have probably, you know, showed his sons how to do that. So yeah, they might even be working with this Ishmail guy. I wouldn't be surprised if they are family business just past. Yeah. Exactly. Normal store. Right now, though. So it's mile has four sons, and I believe three of them are in custody in Mexico. Oh, no. So we'll see. But I mean guthman escaped prison. So I right. I don't know what they can do. Yeah. All makes me nervous fells who is the US attorney in this case setting in court on Tuesday that the government will prove that Guzman is guilty. They apparently have audio and video evidence also text messages and testimony from law enforcement officials and former associates of guthman, so we'll see they seem pretty convinced that they can do it. But. I don't know. I'm sure I'm sure in goose wins mind. He has a good shot. Yeah. But it all just kind of comes down to how. Well, they present. Right. Exactly. You know, and how the jury decides to look at that. Right. Because even those that can be like, well, these people were paid off. How do you know, it's not just like some story. They're making up because somebody's paying them to write like people to either got crazy, people fudge evidence all the time. So I'm sure they're going to try and make that argument. Yeah. We'll see we're going to get quick break. And then we're gonna come back and keep talking about this case.
