And almost to a woman they spoke of him in spite of the way he'd sometimes treated them. He spoke of they spoke of him with lasting affection.

It came back as not belonging to sue or her daughters or megan vast. The hair came back as belonging to another woman who had been arrested on the other side of town that same night. It was most likely that it had nothing to do with pods disappearance. If sue had hired a lawyer early on or just shut her mouth about the case she would likely have never gone to jail.

"Fraser, who filled in last week. Great topic If you missed it, talking about the solar energy, really, the industry And everything that's been affected with power. I know that's a big hot topic in Texas as well as other states. So if you miss that, make sure you go back and listen to the podcast. Today we're talking about real estate, Another topic that is on the minds of a lot of people in business as well as personally. And I want to introduce my guest. Today. It is. Her name is Debbie Boyd. She is the owner of D L B mortgage services located in Frisco, Texas. He's also the host of money strategies with Debbie, which would make sense because it would be awkward. If it was, it would be all critic. It was another name, and you have another show called the dollar diva with Debbie as well. We were just commenting that she is a University of Texas grad. So I'll say it. Hook em horns, Hook warns. That's coming from someone who's a Baylor bear, but so glad to have you here. You've got 25 years in the mortgage business. This is something that's been your passion, and I'm curious. What was it about real estate specifically on the funding side. That really got your attention that you wanted to dive into that you could have chosen a million different careers. What was it about? Real estate, Right? Well, you know, I started working in Houston for a home developer. And it was called life forms. I started the woodlands. He was the son of Mr Mitchell that started the Woodlands. And I was kind of the carol Merrill of homes. You know. So like these cabinets, do you like these floors ended up selling a gorgeous house to a vice president of a bank? And you know, the real estate world is heavily papered. We got tons of paperwork, and so I got him all this paperwork and he was real happy, and he's like, you know what you could do a lot better if you were a lender like I don't know what that means, And he's like, Well, why don't you just become a banker? And then you would fund these houses and you could sell anywhere in Houston? Not just in this neighborhood. And so I went a little loan Officers school. This was like, 25 years ago. I sound really old now, and I was like, six when I started. So I was thinking that Yeah. Yeah. So I went to loan officers school in ST Louis with the bank and they teach you how to take loan apps and how the information matters and what the information does, But you know, back then we had, like, six pieces of paper you had to fill out. Basically, if you were breathing, and you had decent credit, you could get a house. There wasn't all this qualifying and tax returns and all this stuff, so it's changed a lot. Now, you know, we had four piece of paper. Now we have 140 piece the paper and and so it evolved just because it was a way that I could make more money help more people and and I'm pretty savvy on the money side, so it was just an easy way I could deal with consumers. So I really liked it. I could I could help. A lot of people get into their dream homes. You know, I I have a great appreciation for people in the mortgage business. I will tell you. I stuck my toe in the water for about seven months. Tough. I did it and I worked for this, but you know what? I learned a lot. In fact, I credit I do a lot of cells in my career. Of course, it's been media. We have trained sales team. I learned shells in the mortgage business because that's one of those things. If you don't hunt, you don't eat. That's right. You gotta you gotta go get that meat and drag it back to the cave. Yeah, and it was exciting. It was like one of those things. It's like there is no base salary. When you get into that to that business is not sure you also help families with insurance. Long term gold. So you really just passionate about helping people. All around. I think that's cool. Yeah, I mean, my my parents divorced when I was younger, and I had to take care of my mom. My mom didn't know anything about money. And and I was in college, so I somebody had to help her and I was the only one. So I figured it out. And I really didn't like numbers enough to be a CPA like my dad. My dad was a C P A and and the numbers. I could get him close. I didn't really care if they balanced at the end. And evidently that's the thing If you're a CPA, they want those to balance zero and I got closed and they were like, you're not close enough. So I just stayed in the business school, But I just didn't get a C P A. I didn't become an accountant. And so I like the money world. It makes everything go round, and if you don't understand it, or you're not learn it in it. You can make a lot of mistakes and that has impact on not only your family, but generations to come. Lot of people, uh, you know, set that point when you realize that when you have a budget, you actually have freedom. When you don't have a budget, you don't have freedom. And until you realize that you there are a lot of families, even people listening to now that run businesses that still haven't figured that out. Having a budget actually helps you have freedom. Moving forward. People think it's like a diet. You know, it's so restrictive, and instead you can make a budget to where you say this is what I want to do. I get to spend as much money going out to eat. I get to spend this much money on closer. I get to spend this much money all my kids events and and then you you have a spending budget rather than a constrictive diet. I mean, I can't eat everything if you're on a diet, but look at all the things you can eat, So I think if we just flipped it around, people don't like being told what to do. That's true. And if you get to make it yourself Then you feel responsible. It's like setting your own goals for a sales team, right? If this is my goal, and I said it, then I made it. I invested in it. So what we try to do is make people understand. This is your money. You need to control it rather than it control you. Lot of people When they go to college. They come out doing something completely different. But looking at your background is perfect communication, journalism and business. I didn't mean to. I mean, it just it just happened by accident. So what I think most happens to people is that they find what they're passionate and I liked always helping people thought it would be more in Public relations and creating campaigns and old school advertising. Um, it just didn't work out like that. When I got out of college in the eighties, there was not a good environment to to get a job. So I ended up becoming a waitress and getting into sales. And then, like you said in sales, you can take it anywhere. I used to work for a Nabisco at an Arizona and so I saw cookies. And you saw cookie displays and you put up cookie displays. But you have budgets and you have you know you get commission if you go so much over your budget and how to do that, and how to do, um, communications with store managers and consumers. And so it all kind of goes together. And it's kind of like the perfect storm. Yeah, I just added to it as I Group because I'd find something I'm like. Oh, I can do that. Oh, that looks fun. I bet you I could do that. And now I've got this weird resume. That doesn't really make sense. But it makes sense to me. No, it makes sense. And so, of course, you know, we're content marketing agency that owns the show and this talk radio. So we preach all the time you use content for your business. You have.

He said the Supreme Court quote really let us down. No wisdom, no courage. Trump had called the lawsuit filed by Texas against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, the big one that would end with the Supreme Court undoing Biden substantial Electoral college majority. But the court said Texas does not have the legal standing under the constitution to soup. For the past five weeks, federal and state courts rejected nearly all of Trump's attempts at overturning the election court. Electoral College meets Monday to formally elect Biden.

Los Angeles - OC District Attorney investigating potential Election Day ballot harvesting operation
"Investigators in Orange County are looking into a possible ballot harvesting operation. At the campaign headquarters of a candidate for City Council in Westminster. The D. A's office started an investigation on election day after a video surfaced showing a handmade sign reading quote VOTEHERE posted outside the campaign office. Or in this different KCR. W's Matt Gillom, the slap Dash sign says Vote here in what looks like black marker. It was hanging on the telephone pole just outside the reelection office of Republican Westminster Vice Mayor Kimberly Ho. In a video posted online by Clarity OSI, a grassroots group pushing for political transparency. The sign was documented hanging outside the office, Justin Fraser, a member of clarity, OSI called the Orange County registrar to make sure Ho's office was not being used as an unauthorized polling place. All members of the group stayed at the scene. They claim Ho and others swarmed their vehicles in an effort to intimidate them. The politician and her assistance went back inside and started moving boxes to the back while several people were seen discarding what Fraser said appeared to be envelopes. A lawyer representing host campaign told the Orange County Register ballots were being collected at the site. But no actual voting was taking
China postpones Ant’s colossal IPO after closed-door talk with Jack Ma
"American markets are not, of course, the on ly markets and Chinese investors had been planning something of a celebration this week, the world's biggest initial public offering ever. To be set in Shanghai and Hong Kong, the company going public and I think we mentioned this last week is Ant Financial, a giant in Chinese fintech financial technology. That was the case until this morning. That is Chinese regulators kind of out of nowhere suspended. The I P o not happening at all. Not clear what's going on. But his marketplaces Scott Tongue reports. What we do know is that the Chinese government is still very much in charge of the world's second largest economy. Aunt group is no small insect in the Chinese economy. It's phone APP is used by 700 million people. Martin Short's MPA is with the Peterson Institute for International Economics in China. They don't use credit cards. They link their bank account into this digital wallet, and then they scan barcodes everywhere to pay for things. They can also shop online through it taken by gold and investment products. Get loans get insurance two weeks ago and controlling stake holder Jack Ma blasted Chinese financial regulators for red tape and for not understanding companies like his into many, Jack Ma crossed a line and the government is assumed to have struck back by freezing the AIPO for now. China market analyst Fraser Howie is the author of Red Capitalism. The status pattern made by the party is proud of me. Even though Jack's a member of the party business cannot be devolved from politics in China. Social media in China is now filled with cracks about Aunt's getting crushed in this old movie clip of Jack Ma, playing a kung fu master apologizing to the cops always says The lesson for international investors is beware of the China market in the interference of the state. Imagine, he says, You're like the risk manager at some $100 billion Midwest Pence and fund and last week, someone said, we've got again to China. Look what's happening. You're gonna turn around and say, turn around and say no way. Another cautionary message has to do with Chinese innovation, Martin Zampa says in the US it's normal for a tech CEO to tell Washington bureaucrats to back off. But when Jack Ma says that in China he's put in this place. The pendulum continues to swing towards control and away from the freedom. Which encourages innovation, he says Chinese authorities fear that Aunt group could make borrowing too easy and put the financial system and risk. I'm Scott Tongue for marketplace.

"Welcome Carla to the CMO podcast and congratulations the new city CMO. So happy to have you on his, you're just promote it and you were promoted about the time city named its first woman CEO. Jane Fraser did you to celebrate in any interesting or unusual way during Cova? We didn't well, we we We did celebrate over over a phone call. I am a huge fan of Jane's ever since I met her a couple of years ago. I just and I'm so thrilled for her I really really enthralled for her and I'm I'm honored to be working for her and alongside her and. And Look I think. This is just one of those times when you just really proud to to work at the company that you work at bright because the the the. The fact that we are putting our values to action by you know by by appointing Jane the CEO of the company is just such a huge huge nod to the wonderful leader that she is the greatest compliments that she's had and then also values we have as a company around diversity inclusion. I couldn't be more thrilled. I. Couldn't be more thrilled. We're going to get into that later but did you do any celebration with your family or friends? Yeah. Well, you know it's funny I actually. Back to your first question about whether I celebrated with Jane. So my announcement came out a believe it was on publicly on Wednesday and then hers was on Thursday and I wanted to email her and say, you couldn't give me twenty four hours to like celebrating. I. I thought that would be the right thing to do. But anyway she would have she would have gotten a kick out of if I'd actually said that you know we did celebrate at home we have a thirteen year old and I think for her it was a moment of pride in fact, I'll tell you. The week before that, we were driving in the car I was with her and I? And I saw the note that came out the president that came out to to the company about promotion and I. I kind of choked up a little bit and I handed her the phone. She said, Mama. What's wrong and I said nothing's wrong north and sometimes you know your life you know things happen in your life in a good way after you've worked so hard and I had her the phone and she read it and she said she just kind of looked at me. She said, you know Mama I am really proud of you and that was. Honestly, enough celebration for I mean. Obviously, we've got another marketer in the household who was also a very, very happy for me. So we just kind of had it real a quiet. Celebration at home. Sweet story what what? What was it about the letter that moved you? You know I think we all worked so hard right I mean we all just worked so hard and some days we we slug it out and leadership is hard and marketing his hard and. You know I've. I've had ups and downs my career I mean I started off at Kellogg's it at Pepsico and I took very traditional consumer packaged goods, marketing routes, and I kinda knew really where I was headed and then I decided to the one time in my life that I actually made a took a risk in my career. It was such a public failure right and so for me it. Took a long time for me to get when you went to toys R. us. That's when I went to are. Yeah and you know I would not change it for the world. It has opened up so many doors for me and it has taught me so much about the kind of leader I want to be the kind of team I want to be around and the kind of. The way I want to I, want to sort of lead teams in and Dr Visions but. Say was hard right I. Mean it was hard and you know in in the at the risk of being vulnerable, that was not a not a not an easy time for me personally for my daughter to see that and for my my parents who live in Lebanon to see that you know for me it was it just it wasn't a fun moment in my life, and so I've worked really hard to kind of come back from that and so I think it wasn't necessarily the. The words, per se but it really was kind of the moment for me. That was just like all right. You know what a few years after that happened. I worked hard and you know and here I am and so I think that that's more what it was from than than than specific words. Yeah. We're in a very big role now internally externally but that decision of Toys R. US to me is one of the more interesting decisions you made in your life so I wanna come back to that. The podcast. So I've got a lot to say about that. Super before we get too much further into this, this podcast is a first. You're the second member of your family to be interviewed by me. We released their husband Tareq podcast in July. Of course is a CMO at PETCO and our viewers or listeners can hear this but you have a beautiful dog taking a nap behind you on this new. So it's a dog starts to make some noise just bring him in. No, forgive me if he does I, guess. So, did you listen to your husband's podcast? I did I thought he did a really nice job. You know it's funny Jim. I. Don't know if you well, you did you did have conversation about this. You know we tend not. We have in our entire career tended not to talk about. The fact that we're married and in fact, I would tell you that there are so many people in. That will will hear me you mentioned my husband's name not saying who he is and and will will say wait a minute what that Tareq is your husband hold on a second. So we been pretty deliberate about. You know not. Not, sort of mean public about it but I do you know we follow each other? We do. We do love to hear what each other stay and and so I thought that was actually a really thought. He did a really nice
Lilly antibody drug fails in a COVID-19 study; others go on
"In the vaccine rays come into focus a minute slew of farmer earnings this week the healthcare sector as much at stake in the US election. I'm facing immediate policy scrutiny in a potential blue sweep. The first batch of former earnings showed largely makes result amid the virus, with Eli Lilly tumbling after flagging a $400 million expands related to covet research and development. CEO Daybreak so glum back. He expects key data on the vaccine front soon. In our business. We need data. I don't think it makes sense to guess which would would be the most effective. The good news is we'll know that and we'll know that pretty soon. The early ones. As you pointed out of the Marine A Ah new technology that's never produced a human vaccine before, but looks pretty promising in terms of the ability to generate our own antibody response, and that's a good sign. I think for defeating the virus or preventing infection spread. We don't know how long that will last. There's other approaches that have produced vaccines. Modified virus, taking different viruses and mounting elements of the covert virus on them, And those are more proven. They're a little harder to scale, but they also may produce a good response. Mostly, I'm confident because we have so many shots on goal really unprecedented number so quickly. Yeah, So I think science a win. In the end. It's just hard to pick the winner at this point in the horse race, John That's a hockey phrase there. That's not a soccer phrase because there's so fresh. So did soccer. That's a hockey Fraser from is. You don't know what Dave men I'm just going to interpret it as a soccer phrase. It still makes me think you mentioned the word. Scale scale and I want to return to antibody therapies and Please help me understand how difficult it is to scale something cup quickly. In large amounts a Sunni to get the green light. It's difficult because it's so difficult. We actually started commercial manufacturing in the first week in July, so we had to basically aimed at a target that hadn't arrived at its point yet we didn't know the dose. We didn't know whether the drug could work We didn't know in which setting it would work. And today or yesterday we announced Ah, study we'd been conducting with the N H. We're going pause because it's in a later stage of the disease. Probably these antibodies won't be as effective. Where is an early stage of disease looks highly effective, So we already started that process. It's about four months from beginning to end Best case to start manufacturing and have output. And then on top of all that the global infrastructure to make monoclonal antibodies, which is some of the most complicated and expensive type of medicines to make is limited. We've harnessed actually five different sites within our network, collaborating with Anjin and working with a large contract manufacturer owned by Samsung, actually in Korea. To sequester a significant amount of volume. Even then, we know it won't be enough for all the needs based on the current infection rates, so we need to work on lower doses and then concentrating these important therapy's where they can make the biggest impact for us right now. We think that's high risk patients right Is there diagnosed? There's also a question of profitability and your latest earnings report which just came out and said that you expect to spend $400 million On Cove in therapy is exploring what could potentially work and there's natural cap to whatever you can charge for these remedies because there is a public health need and benefit right now. How profitable can these therapies actually be based on the human interest here? So today we announced her knees. That's a good point it so I'm on which showed another solid quarter. We grew revenue and profit amidst this pandemic or in and well, I think it shows the resilience of a company like ours. A CZ. We think about pricing and access. Our first priority is that patients pay nothing. We know that if there's a out of pocket costs that economics will start to differentiate who gets the drug and we think that health status should be the only factor considered, so we're working with governments to procure and sell our medicines and distribute within their markets. In terms of pricing. What we're thinking about carefully is is to shoot, create a price that immediately creates value, not just for us, but for the system, meaning it saves money. Direct costs very quickly, and we've demonstrated we can reduce hospitalization risk in high risk patients between 17 80% in the U. S. A hospitalization state for covert is about $22,000 per person. So there's ample room to share that value, assuming the drug is approved, So we're working on the exact price. It won't be as profitable as other products. Certainly, we expect of a modest return for shareholders based on our modeling today.

"What else I'm excited I'm ready to talk to the man. Yeah. Here's our talk with Mike Fraser. Your credits listing is is pretty insane. I mean you you've really worked on tons of stuff going back to the early eighties that Aaron and I both grew up listening to and some of our favor records. So a very prolific career and Obviously. This is kind of getting to know you episode. So we definitely want have you back in the future to kind of maybe breakdown and a particular album you know track by track. Does it fun to. Resume that's like a mile long just full of amazing stuff pieces of rock and roll history and. I mean I, guess to start I mean a lot of our listeners. We've got listeners that are you know musicians have done very well for themselves. We've got listeners that are kind of like me. They're just fans of rock music. So for you somebody that's done all three can you could you break it down in the simplest terms the difference between a producer and engineer and a mixer? All right. Well, producers kind of the captain of the ship if you would. And in the music industry is I guess a lot of your this is would know producers kind of like the director of a film so He's directing things. You know he's kind liaisons with the band. Picture sure they have the the songs written. That they WANNA do some producers help a lot with the writing or co writing of the songs So he's got the bigger picture. With what the band wants what the where the direction the producer wants to take them to to achieve those goals So the engineer is is the guy that you know fiddles all the knobs and gets the sounds and and captures the band. Out The studio, and if you like that to the movie industry, he the engineers, the cameraman. So he's he's capturing everything. According to the producers directives and you know when you work a lot with the same producers, you become a team of those lions Kinda get blurred you know as a as an engineer. Young experienced engineer. You know I can pipe in two. Hey, how about we try this or havens? Walking on the producers Toes or anything. and. A mixture is basically the same as engineers mixers. The guy that takes all the colors that you recorded, guitars, drums, vocals, everything, and the mixer blends it all in together into what you guys here is the final product so you try and really. Make sure that painting is. Comes out sparkles and does everything that song supposed to do he knows a mix a year. You still gotta think of what a song is. It doesn't matter what instruments is there. What's the core of the song? Some songs a very sort of vocal driven of the instruments have to be more of a background pulled in that that those vocals up some oriental riff orientated to those GonNa be louder. The vocals are just the lyrics over top of that. You know I mean there's different perspective. So the responsibility is to find. What he feels is the perspective of the song and then hopefully the producer and the band agree with. It. In a nutshell. Right. Well the U. yeah so Just go onto your credits going you know at the beginning I and I I saw another interview with you with the Australian fellow on Youtube and and you know you Kinda went through your story about high. You took a janitor job at little mountain to Kinda get your foot in the door over there and that's That place is so historically amazing because you know so many amazing records came out but also.

S. for the virus has been swift and forceful he has said that says more policy help may be needed to pull the US out of this economic excuse me downturn and I suspect that he's also said that forty percent of households making under forty thousand dollars or lost their jobs in March that is huge he made it very clear so far still speaking but he made it very clear that says a satellite me tell you the truth Hey this is a and the fact of the calls and he said the usual suspects have not been the cause of this problem so it called for unusual measures to be taken I thought that was very well stated very spot on so exercise more than once so far that this is about a virus and nothing else is also indicated that there is significant downside risk as we moved on he is concerned about a prolonged recovery during a very weak recession and again emphasizing that additional help additional relief as he puts it may be needed liquidity issues can become our sovereignty issues I'm sure he is saying that leading up to the fact that he's gonna talk about what he did to relieve that and what has been done the federal reserve has done an amazing job as I've been saying for a very long time and continues to do an amazing job with our fiscal support to avoid any real long term damage in the economy that might not ever be recovered from so very wise to get out in front of so much I am hoping I'm not going to be able to hear it obviously I'm on the air by I am hoping that he is going to indicate or at least mention or talk about the exit and exit strategy for all this be it way down the road but none the less at least hoping that he will speak about that I will on may to some of this on our conference call today if you are a partner of the ministry we have a conference call today

common sense that we all use now here's your host Dan Celia good morning welcome back to financial issues dancer it's great to be here six ten three six three excuse me snuck up on me I sure appreciate all of you there with us thank you for your emails what a blessing that was holy mackerel I no idea there was going to that many people are involved I I didn't obviously any get emails from everybody but I got a lot of them I gotta believe that if I got that many there were a lot of other people that your didn't bother saying anything Sir thank you for that I sure appreciate I'm glad you were there and I'm glad you had a chance to participate that I hope you had a chance to participate in the national day of prayer through a number of other ways as well and I hope you did that I appreciate all of you being with us of its rapid fires Friday so it's rapid fire Friday you might want to keep your call right now I know a lot of you have questions now would be the time to ask at six ten three six three eleven ten it is Friday if you're new to the program we ask you that you are get right to the point keep your question short and to the point or your comment and I'll get right to it and we will do the same this is not a day to be dissecting an entire portfolio it is rapid fire we ask you to be considered of those that are trying to get through and I are on the line so if you would do that that would be great that would help us out and we will do our best to try to get to as many calls as we possibly can and again our phone lines are open six ten three six three eleven ten six ten three six three eleven ten if you want your number up well the April job numbers came out this morning obviously these were staggering numbers prostate even try to digest very very hard to try to digest these kinds of numbers by as we look through them I shouldn't say Winnie I should say as I looked through them there were a number of things right jumped out that I think were rather positive so by the way these numbers are probably historical numbers in almost regardless of how old you are whether you're nineteen or ninety you are not likely to ever see a number like this again in your lifetime I would expect that the month of may number is not going to be a good number either but I don't think it's going to be twenty point five million people in one month twenty point five million people lost their job now this is you know proved if nothing else that our switch was turned off on the economy you can't have this many losses all at one time in a gradual on something that's not in a gradual fashion over a period of months and months maybe even years this kind of stani number without it B. as a result of a switch being turned off and all of a sudden everything goes dark or everything goes light at one at one time and that's exactly what has happened so people unemployed rose to a unemployment are on record in the record books as millions of people shared their job is evidence of the economic destruction that is been brought about as a result of the corona virus it is evidence of the fact of a global pandemic and a national health crisis it's okay for us to remember that and not take for granted that everybody knows that we are suffering from a cause and the effect of that suffering is a loss and one month of twenty point five million jobs so hourly wages went up four point seven percent which you can imagine health care workers grocery workers and so many other people on the front lines of this obviously there are wages went up the biggest number of people I think it was forty seven percent come out of the leisure are the hotel business to travel business and leisure markets forty seven percent of this number comes from that construction lost about a million jobs that really wasn't that bad considering the unemployment rate is up to fourteen point seven percent I gotta believe it's higher than that but that's what they're calling right now fourteen point seven percent so that is a significant number I'm trying to remember the last time I saw fourteen point seven percent unemployment rate I should have looked it up and I don't have time the numbers just came out I had a half an hour to try to digest the numbers and get ready final notes and thought for the start of the program it was interesting the markets were up the Dow was up to under fifty points thirty seconds before the number came out the gal continue to go up was up six hundred and fifty points at one point after the numbers came out these are the Dow futures the futures now are still in positive territory but nowhere near those numbers so they finally did back down a little bit off of that we always opt three percent twenty four thirty per barrel of oil the real good news in this is a couple of things the first thing is that we are barely over five hundred thousand jobs that are considered permanent losses in the job market now over out of twenty point five million that is not even close to being a bad number as a matter of fact we could look at that and say well that's a very very good number so only I half a million people are considering to have gone through permanent job loss obviously labor participation rate went down but it only went down to sixty from sixty two was still higher than where it was in two thousand and nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen and fifteen and sixty so I didn't go down now what what might be expected the other thing that we need to know is out of that twenty million people eighteen million of those people that have lost their jobs listen to this eighteen million of those people who lost her job but I'll leave that their job is not permanently lost they believe that this is in the end of their employment they believe that as we sat all in that we will have our job back that's what they believe eighteen million I believe that that is an amazing number and another reason to think very positively about these numbers I said there were two reasons as a third the third reason wage I love the.

"Need to know where Fraser for our children this is the last best hope of man on earth I will sentence them to take that last step and one thousand years we five the government that common sense that we all use now here's your host Dan Celia well good morning welcome back to financial issues on the issue it is great to be with you about it I took a day off first time that I can remember other than a holiday or season you know Christmas good Friday that kind of thing but took a day off Friday and it was nice I didn't do anything just relax playing some grass seed I did some things on the website early morning as you heard but other than that was great I hope you I checked out the website this morning I did put I just put up a little recap this morning I also did a little something for somebody church website so I'll maybe I'll put that up on our website later on today or tomorrow well it looks like all the Dow future all the futures are positive territory the Dow is up about the eight hundred points right now it's about where it's been all morning since about three o'clock so we're looking at about four in a point optic which is three point eight percent the S. and P. is up in the same and so was the nasdaq so everything's up significantly we'll see it with its back on hold I'm not really because of any major economic data that's coming out that has got anybody overly enthusiastic that's for sure well taking a big hit this morning apparently there was a scheduled meeting with el pack that was canceled this morning cancel this morning and that puts some negative reaction obviously into the oil sector we see well down four and a half percent so we're twenty seven oh nine looks like it's going to keep on dropping less something happening happens fairly quick R. corona virus updates Germany is drafting its plan to unlock down Spain's daily death toll declined that's good news for Germany who has done a pretty good job in containment is drawing up plans that they're going to take to lock down apparently the SBA loans and I've already started near about ten percent of the allotted money the Congress has already approved that is a lot of money that is over well over a billion dollars they are right now so making those loans a lot of people are filing for that on Friday there was a lot of activity on that that is good news we need to see our small businesses in particular get through that and get it done if it's going to help them so I think there are some unintended consequences of that one is that obviously if you take that loan and you end up not being able to keep people on the payroll beyond that then you're gonna have to pay it back it's things continue down this road that we're on right now and get worse you won't be paying it back could you be declaring bankruptcy but I wonder if there's SBA loans are still going to be R. X. Inc excluded from bankruptcy something you might want to think of remember you can get a SBA loan for a barrel up to about two and a half times your monthly pay roll so that's about the maximum you can get show if between your cash reserves and this alone you you don't feel you can make it for four or five months you know or you don't make it if this thing lingers on then that could be a problem they're already talking about a second surgery all of this so anyway that's what that's what is happening right now so that money is getting in to circulation oil prices as I mentioned turned lower despite hints that Russia and Saudi Arabia are very close to a deal well they can't be too close because they canceled the meeting today and that's the problem with the oil right now is that they canceled the meeting that is not good news obviously as we think about what what is going on yet last week we look at the Dow of course we are up to about ten thousand or near ten thousand in and deaths here in America alone three hundred and thirty seven thousand Paul in the United States the global campus about one point two eight million cases U. S. stock futures obviously op as I already mentioned this morning considerably as we are seeing some of the mortality rate began to drop in and New York state so that's good news Surgeon General Jerome Adams warned this is going to be the hardest and the saddest week for most Americans lives are going to be on the line this is going to be they are anticipating that this week is going to be a week of chic mortality peak def in in the country I don't know how they can say that it may be in New York City but we see Chicago coming on strong we see Detroit coming on strong I we haven't really seen much in Florida so far it looks like they haven't contained but remember there are three weeks behind us Florida so I you know you have to think that it's going to continue there are rumors because we don't know for sure because the government is not reported accurately in China but we do know this much when we look at it Shanghai and Wuhan in other areas where they have it contained they are closing movie theaters that they re opened so they re open movie theaters now they're closing it so they don't really have to tell us we can get the picture that it's picking back up again and the same thing is happening in Singapore Singapore did a great job containing this and now they are beginning to close things again I don't think we can jump the gun here and president trump already indicated that the last thing we should be doing is trying to quickly to claim victory over this virus and China did that obviously and it looks like Singapore did that and I hope that countries around the globe well take heed of that let's not get too are too anxious to get things open again so that has happened that is not good news you saw on the Dow Jones on Friday or let's just talk about for the week and when we look at the major indices over the week the third weekly decline in four so three of the four hi this is the third weekly decline the Dow slid two point seven percent on the week the S. and P. was down two point one and the nasdaq down one point seven so stocks continue to be deep in bear market territory again as the concerns continue globally and as this is going to dramatically impact the economy companies that are using this as an excuse not to pay the rent and do certain things and have plenty of.

"When i was at training mark and you know this is kind of hard to gauge just because it's the first one but there were regular times during drills during scrimmages in which fraser fraser would just completely blow the whistle completely interrupt the face of play and everything that was going on and talk for three or four minutes straight engaging a bunch of different players talking about about things in really detail from what i could tell you know and normally some of the other coaches we've seen i won't go through. What every single one of them does you know. They might talk to an they might stop things to talk to to the individual. They might stop things to at the end of the drill to talk about things that was going on. Frazier immediately stopped things okay. This isn't right. You guys aren't understanding something. Let's actually talk about there. Were tactical. Teaching moments and frazier talked about wanting to have those tactical teaching moments for those young players and you know having them be more about progress progress so apply. If i were to apply this to an educational standpoint mark that you might be able to relate to you know he was focusing on growth more so than what's the other one in the context of like standardized tests growth versus acumen. I think i guess <laughter> okay yeah so he focused more on growth and so he didn't talk a lot about the rapids d._a. Specifically typically just because he was new and who knows how many times he's actually spoken to brian crookham so far but besides hi my name's robyn frazier hi my name's brian crookham but you know he said that he recognized denies the talent that's there. He says that even just in the first couple of training sessions he sees a lot of potential in all the homegrown players and you know that he thinks that he can put authentic to be successful and i think is track record working under greg vanney <hes> with all the homegrown toronto f._c. Had from <hes> suba endo to <hes> come to jonathan her story. Oh i think is a good you know a good track record or show that i think that you know young coal and young savon sam combines are in good hands from that standpoint for the rapids and you know he's going to be a lot more pragmatic and i think careful with them and made we've seen from other coaches <hes> and then i also had there was one question that we have and also address mark <hes> conor casey was not at training and it's since been confirmed by portsmouth smith that conor casey was offered the opportunity to stay as an assistant with the club robin fraser my understanding had given that blessing and then also he was was offered the opportunity to be the new head manager for the rest of the season and then into twenty twenty with colorado springs switchback and casey turn both of those down so o'connor casey is now officially no longer affiliated with the colorado rapids and i guess for all intents and all intent and purpose is unemployed at this point and who knows you know you might be able to speak better mark as far as a u._s. L. team that might would you might be able to fit in with what conor casey's done for the last two or three months but that's at least disappointing for me. 'cause that tells me mark that you know casey didn't want to sit around to be assistant under a new third head manager manager and i think clearly maybe he thought that he had done enough to steady the ship. I don't want to speak for conor casey. I think he certainly i. I would be willing to bet money that he left the club on better terms than certainly pablo mastroeni did the day that he was fired her certainly paul bravo the day that he quit this kind kind of just the fact that he didn't want to hang around and maybe the club shortchanged him or you know maybe secretly. We're gonna find out in the next couple of weeks as the u._s. L. season you know winds lines down that you know somebody else. Give him an opportunity and it's an opportunity that frankly is better than what the switch backs are.
