Bitcoin tops $34,000 as record rally continues
"Quick look at Bitcoin right now a 3 33,093 in UK trading On Sunday, Bitcoin actually broke above 34 grand for the first time. I want to take a closer look now with Bloomberg's Joanna Haas singer. MMA Cross at team editor Joining us from Singapore. Joanna, I know this Bitcoin has been on quite the rally. I mean, we're up more than 40% over the last two weeks. So what are people saying about this quick rise? It's very impressive. You're right. And people are actually starting to talk about 50,000, which seemed unimaginable just a few months ago. But it was only in the December when it actually broke above 20,000 for the first time, and now we have this Of course, it's been somewhat been trading for the holidays. There are a lot of people who might have done their annual re evaluation and decided they wanted to get into crypto. And so that's been helping as well. But it is a pretty stunning game. Has there been a mine mind shift in terms of the adoption? I mean, are we seeing institutions now participate in a way that the retail trade had been doing before? Definitely, and they're coming in many times via something like the grayscale Bitcoin trust that allows them to have AH registered investment vehicle. But there are people like policy there. Jones Guggenheim is getting into the act and saying they're going tol they might buy Bitcoin with one of their funds. And you just have more and more institutions. At least things are going to consider it if not actually getting in themselves. Is anyone being a little cautious here? Or at least two sounding that alarm? I don't want to say alarm but at least raising the possibility that we may be on thin ice here. Yes, there were definitely people who have mentioned the volatility. For instance, B t i G, which does have a target for Bitcoin of 50,000. But we can still see a lot of downside. Volatility is well and it is just been such a runoff. You do wonder if it's the blow off top if you'll see a big move down. Like we did in December 2017 where it was just such a sudden move up. But then quite sudden move down is all. So we know that good coin is the largest crypto. I'm wondering whether the move that we're seeing in Bitcoin is inspiring interest in other crypto currencies that may not be as expensive. It is for sure. And ether, for instance, just its own record. As of yesterday, it hadn't beaten. It's February 2018 highs yet until yesterday, and now it's above the thousands. And you have even others like Bitcoin Cash, for instance, that are also coming up as people get interested in Kryptos. Whether asset class Joanna Good stuff. Thank you So much for being with us.

What Caused Californias Blackouts?
"What caused California's outages last week, short-term blackouts role the cross and overheated California as the grid operator said, there was not enough power to meet demand. This wasn't supposed to happen again not after the Enron scandal not after nineteen years of reforms we have a very different grid now and renewable skeptics including president trump are seizing on the. Incident what really happened then coal power in the US plunged thirty percent in just the first half of the year. What about Asia that's for eighty percent of gets burn. Now, what hope is there for a cold decline there and last the case for clean energy transition just keeps making itself when you look at new research on air pollution and combine it with cheap renewables turns out the health benefits alone pay for our energy changeover joining me to talk about these topics are my co hosts, Jigger Shah and Melissa Lot Jigger. Is the president of generate capital. Speaking of health benefits. How is your health today jigger? I'm feeling a lot better with the cool air of Deep Creek Lake in Maryland yeah, you have a new background behind you deep creek lake That's where you're vacationing. Yeah. You know it's still in Maryland. So I'm not violating quarantine issues with schools I mean it's crazy right? You can't actually leave the state you have to quarantine for fourteen days if you leave the state before your kid can go to school. Dr Melissa Lot is back with us. She's an Austin Texas. She's our guest co hosts in a senior research scholar at the center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University. How are you? You seem to be enjoying the conversation you're still back for a third week in a row. Scared me off yet. So let's get now I seriously enjoying this a lot also will enjoy hearing. Catherine back at the live event next week. So that will be fun but things are good here in Austin it's it's hot. I will admit to being very jealous of one of my colleagues Kirsten Smith who's up in Vancouver right now the pictures they just made me so jealous but it's good here in Austin. Well, it's brutal there in California for sure with wildfires raging in the north AH pandemic still gripping the stay in now blackouts last week It's a really dismal situation there in the state so you may have all heard about the blackouts in California. Last week. Now let's be clear. We're not talking about. Days or even a week without power like thousands of people who went through this in the Midwest last week after the show or the folks on Long Island after the recent tropical storm this was something else these were small-scale our blackouts the grid operator calls based on moment inability to meet demand. It's been super hot all across the West. So California couldn't just call an Oregon or Arizona to import power and the problem struck at the same time each day as the sun sank down below the horizon m solar power generation stopped or slowed. So that took several gigawatts along with it even with an intense large-scale. Heatwave was this. The Best California can do the state has dramatically built out new capacity much of it renewable since the energy crisis in two thousand one but it's been closing a lot of gas plants. What role did both play? Let's start off with the perspective of the California Grid Operator let's clip from Severin Bornstein who is on the case Oh board of directors. He's also a faculty director at the Energy Institute at the UC Berkeley Haas business school. Here he is talking on air talk from KPCC we have gone down the road of putting more and more renewables on the grid and have not taken as. As we need to the constraints on those renewables the fact that they can disappear. Well, they do disappear on the sun goes down the solar but that the wind can suddenly stopped blowing, which is what happened Saturday and caused what we thought was going to be an okay but close night actually require rolling blackouts. So we really need to look in a much more refined way at what can. We count on from these renewables and figure out how we can fill in when they're not there. So this is a slightly technical version of what people like president trump are claiming on twitter that Democrats are using energy green energy to bring down the grid and your way of life. Now, to be clear severin born scene is not claiming that but I think he's channeling an argument that lot of. People who are skeptical of renewables are making, which is the more nose we put on the grid, the more these blackouts or going to happen So let's talk about the actual nuance of what happened in California Melissa to the best of our understanding what did happen. Yes. So to what we understand right now and to just for a moment back up and say we're going to it's going to be. A while before we know exactly what happened we need to do a full postmortem of this to understand really what went wrong wear for this type of situation to occur.

"That way in the states in general everyone mean not everyone but in general more brainstorming goes on here. So that's the downside of the downside of it is that people are afraid to break up the group harmony. So when you look at. Using this in the states obviously, the point of your book is to teach people about this practice and how they can use it, and as you've noted in an illustrator just in the stories that you've told, the way that they interact is very different. If I go into a meeting right now and they ask for an opinion and I just sit there, they're going to be like what's going on over there like this she on gauge. So how does someone then start learning these principles and using them? In our current environment, I find that integration of the best of both cultures works. So in the one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety s the Japanese sent around a delegation to all over the world all over the world because they did not have scientific institutions they did not have advanced universities they did not have a modern military all that stuff. So they sent around this delegation all over the world and came back this delegation from the states they came up with only goodness public transportation. In Washington DC, they have trolleys, and in England went a parliamentary monarchy. How cool is that? We can have a king or emperor, but we can also a parliament came back from Prussia and they said, wow, scientific institutions based on evidence and observation we can. We can do that. So my argument with Japan is we should cherry pick their culture to so when I go to a meeting in the states. I try to integrate what they have to say. So for example. I will do the very best. I. Can to let everyone talk and then I'll say something like I, wonder if I can offer an opinion would that be useful at this time or if I'm interrupting someone particularly because guy and there's a lot of man's planning that goes on, I live with. Wife is a physician, my daughter's a physician. So they kind of broke me in here and so they the ideas you don't want to interrupt the woman in the room. So I will. It's not like I'm such a bad guy or something, but it just comes naturally. That's how I was raised..

VCs and Startups Consider HaaS Model for Consumer Devices
"All familiar with software as a service right in a way. SAS has taken over the world. For software and all sorts of enterprise and consumer settings, but even increasingly. In all consumer settings as consumers have gotten used to. You know paying for digital things. I mean you can think of Netflix. As software as a service in a way. Well, are you ready for hardware as a service? Let me give you an example. Noura is a company that makes high. End earphones the NRA phone. For example is what the company calls the world's smartest headphones. You can buy the neuro phones today for three hundred ninety nine dollars, or if you pay ninety nine dollars, ninety nine cents up front and subscribed to pay nine dollars ninety nine cents a month. You can also own the near Afon. This is not rent to own. This is subscribed to us. As long as you keep paying, you can get a new neuro phone device every twenty four months. You can get the over the air software updates that keep the device improving, and Oh, yeah, keep the device working because if you stop paying, the device shuts off. Remember when there was that whole Brouhaha about Sonos end of lifing support for their earliest speaker systems. Yeah, get ready to hear a lot more about hardware service quoting techcrunch. In a recent email exchange Duncan Turner general partner at the x accelerator, which backed Noura described Hass hardware as a service as a great way to keep in contact with your customers and up sell them on new features most importantly for startups, recurring revenue is critical for scaling business with venture capital, and we'll help appeal to a broad set of investors, Haas also often has a low churn as easier to put. Put onto long term contracts and quote the upside to consumers clear. Don't pay for everything all up front, and your freer to experiment with new devices in ways you wouldn't have been otherwise. This is especially important in a world where brick and mortar experience is increasingly rare, even before retail ground to a halt courtesy of covid nineteen. There's also a clear appeal for those who are inclined to frequently upgrade devices quote. It's providing continuous value than it should be worth paying for Y combinator partner Eric Makovsky, tells tech crunch, if not stop using it and move on, it also is more sustainable hardware.

Eighteen study analysts parks associates noted a potential hurdle, however quote while a consumer reluctance to pay subscription fees is well documented. Haas models may get more traction. Where more value can be offered at less financial risk to the consumer, the challenges to create a service bundle with clear value that consumers find attractive consumers will pay for services that they perceive as valuable and complete tasks that they cannot or prefer not to do themselves unquote. As another VC is quoted, saying in the peace and I've seen myself over the last few months, startups don't have to be talked into Haas into this new sort of business model. Providing consumers can be talked into buying in as well if there is a new hotness right now in startup pitches at the moment it is basically subscription, but for x that sort of the new uber, but for X, and it's easy to see why this is so attractive to start ups. We've spoken endlessly before about how reliable and easily anticipated revenue is provided by subscriptions. But also if you have a subscription business, consider that you could achieve scale, not at the end of some years long slog through the Dark Valley of losing, money.

But overall revenues fell sixty percent year over year during that quarter, most of their stores were closed. For Up to ten weeks at a time there, so like you said the e commerce sales just really couldn't make up for the for the lack of of the regular retail sales. Lots of just worries about what was happening leave. They entered the the year of actually doing doing pretty pretty well. They were pretty excited that they're they're. They're a CEO chipper talked about how the the beginning of the year looked pretty positive, but then obviously they committed pandemic, really hit them, and then they ran a net loss of three, hundred and sixty, four, million, most of that was two hundred and forty, two million, due to a restructuring inventory, costs and other costs tied directly to the pandemic, so the good news is now that most of their stores North Ninety percent are. Are Now back open. However, one of the things that has many of us worried is just that the resurgence of some of the cases, the covid nineteen cases were seen around the country in the US cases spike gene on a per day level has them has leave is looking at up to forty of their stores and wondering how do we have to kind of re shut those down for the time? Being similar to what apple is, so? They suspended their share repurchase. They did pay a dividend, but they they. They are not going to pay that in the third quarter. And so, and they suspended their guidance for the year so. Tough Times leave is and other retailers Chris that came public about a year ago little over a year ago. They raised. Their money at seven dollars stock price and had a really nice day. ONE JUMP UP TO I! Think as high as twenty three, and now the stocks back down to thirteen, so we're really tough ride for Levi shareholders over the past year. And laying off somewhere in the neighborhood of fifteen percent of corporate positions, so that's one more cost saving measures. They're. They're trying to pull in terms of levers. twenty-five percent ecommerce jump, you know. Under normal circumstances that would be seen as really good, but we've seen plenty of other retailers. Come Out, andy and maybe their online sales don't make up for stores being closed, but they come a lot closer. We've seen any number of retailers, not just the the big ones like target and Walmart, but smaller niche players whether ECOMMERCE is in some cases doubling so I mean that's that's one thing that Levi's has to do an even better job of. Of over the next six to twelve months. Chris you got that right, so it's fifteen percent of their sales that's up from five percent last year, but only five percent so five percent was really ECOMMERCE, so so unlike I think so many the other companies you mentioned Walmart for example with what Doug Macmillan's been doing and target and Home Depot, and so many of these companies that are making these big investments in in the in the Omni Channel. Efforts to be able to sell directly to consumers through their channels online as well as retail whatever strategy it may be leave is obviously has a lot of work to do, and they're. They're talking all the right language now, but you know I think there's some some some hesitations doubt there. I mean the Haas family is still largest shareholder in the Levi's. Shareholder base by far. Across their their family, the on large amounts of steak, so so they have a very stable shareholder base. Maybe wither the weather this storm, but on the margin It's you know the the cost reduction. Chris you mentioned from the seven hundred positions or fifteen percent of their workforce that maybe as a savings of one hundred million per year. That's about two percent of their annual cost structure, so so it's it's meaningful in the margin I. Think, but it's not like game changer. They're really. They gotta make sure. They have a new strategy for how to sell her

Hey Audrey Cooper here editor in chief of the San Francisco Chronicle and we've ramped up the news coming at you from fifth emission except not the physical the mission since we're all working at home the fifth and mission. That is our flagship. Podcast were interviewing anyone with anything to say about the corona virus so that you have the latest information as soon as we know it so check it out at the mission wherever you get your podcasts. If you're running a team I don't know if we necessarily you can have favorite. But did you have any favorite players that do you a minute now because no one can get really mad at me right? And he's still. My favorite player would be Stewart and I can give you more stories about that. Just because he was such a great. Obviously I love to see him pitch to me. He was one of the UNSUNG big game. Pitchers of all time Bobby what else was a dear dear. I I just I was a fan of Bob Wells. Even though it wasn't a dodger fan. I just always was intrigued by Bob. Wells I was thrilled when that trae came and he was such a need a unique guy they I mean I like all these guys but those who stand out Dennis Eckersley. I loved his honesty as a human being So direct and and So I was very fortunate to have those kind of guys around if you will. They were just really great guys like us. Oh yeah one of the things I really liked most about those teams were some of the most key players and memorable players are local Eckersley. Rickey Stu you know those The kind of guys you know by just one one name though. Those were all East Bay guys right right no I. I'll never you know you talk to you. Just remind me as I mean who can forget that whole Toronto series in the play offs of Ricky Henderson taking over that series as a player and there are very few players could in baseball could do that. And I remember h-has appreciation day. Which was a very tough time and it was a very hard you know wonderful thing that the staff and the players did instead of fan appreciation that they named they call. It has appreciation day in Ricky. Who who is now? You know not in. The prime of his career took over that game. Yeah and I remember seeing them after the game and I said Ricky that was pretty special. This had to do it for for your dad and it was it was. It was very sweet. Oh that's wonderful. That's wonderful now. Obviously stay in touch with the some of the people Certainly stays who. Who Do you try to keep in touch with Besides the obvious I voice brother-in-law's. I'm assuming right well. I'm certainly well from the front office. It's been so that's the other part. That's so special about that time. Is that we really much. As it's this overuse. It did feel like a family in the front office. We on the team for fifteen years. And I'm guessing the average tenure of our front office had to be at least twelve those fifteen years People didn't leave. They liked working. There was obviously special being in sports but it was. There was a real life really wonderful culture and so as you know thanks to the eighty nine team there has been a reason for on reunions and I do appreciate that this current ownership of the as has brought back you know and wanted to make the Oakland as part of the the as history. Something that people remember and they've they've honored teams from the seventies and eighties and nineties and two thousand. So we've had many eighty nine reunions On the for the team but we also had a few for our front office so those are always been very special but certainly obviously my brother-in-law but sandy's we stayed in touch and I mean I just he he was obviously. He rebelled helped revolutionized how people view baseball and how they Look at players and evaluate players. But he's just one of the great human being so I felt very fortunate to work with him as my partner for those years and I was so pleased to see him. Come back as a consultant with the as I know that when he left the as he Went to MLB was great and overseeing the umpires and all of that. But I got ahead to believe that when you don't have a team to root for and just sort of be emotionally attached to. It's not quite the same so I get why he went to the mets. And I'm just so pleased that he's doing something with the again. Yeah it's great having them around as a I first and foremost trumpet from reporter standpoint. He's a phenomenal talker. In various he has a wonderful dry sense of humor. That you'd never would think somebody who can be so so sort of buttoned-down at times and disciplined can have no. I'm biased for sure. Oh He's absolutely hysterical Now tell us what you've been doing. Since the sale the team ninety year involved with A couple of different charitable endeavors foundations Starting of course Evelyn Walter Haas Junior Fund which you write my number of. Here's my share the board. I don't run it But I share the board and it's been a great but there's been a wonderful opportunity to to try to get back And so I've done that and I took over the chairmanship when my mom passed away but I was been involved as a trustee and a share up to that point and We try to do good things like others but it's it's You Know I. It's a foundation that my mom and dad founded so I always we always have their legacy and their values at at our heart as we try to do good and you know frankly try to pretty much even the playing field for a lot of people And it was through that work that I got very involved in creating a nonprofit which you're aware of coaching corps and It was initially funded and spill is funded in part by the Haas junior fund but now many others. Fortunately see the that it. It's it's worth getting behind. And and what? The idea for. Coaching Corps really did come out of our experience with the as and seeing how the power sports could bring a community together just and Particularly get a kid's attention and really captivate them and certainly when you're successful on the field even more so than not that the psychic list that you see in a community when a sports team has success. You've seen it most recently obviously with the warriors and before that with the giants and one had our our moments too so that was important but with centrally. What Coaching Corps does is you know Susan as we recruit and train volunteers to become coaches. So that more boys and girls and low income communities can connect with the great coach coach. You can serve as a mentor. A friend or even in some cases their most important teacher. It's amazing to me how many times I've gone to talk to somebody who has been successful. And if I asked him if they ever had a meaningful coach really changed their lives. How many people raise their hands or had a child? It had that experience and I say well what would your life have been like if you didn't have it so this is sort of where we've landed with coaching corps and we also landed there because when we on the as we saw that there was a growing really difference of opportunity for kids to even play sports. Let alone have a great coach depending on what Zip Code. They lived in and so we saw that there. Was this really growing. Need for for this and coaches being the impact point. And it's been it's been phenomenal the impact and as you know it is you've experienced through this. We partnered every year with NBC Sports Bay area and they put on this incredible dinner which they've televised and through their their relationships with professional sports team. Every professional sports team in northern California has supported this dinner and had a player common honor that coach person that was made a difference in their lives from Steph Curry Honoring Bob. Mckendrick from Davidson to dream on green and Tom Izzo from Michigan State. To Stephen Piscotty offering is dad. Who was as incredible literally coach? He was a great he he he was the as representative this this year earlier this year when you could get together in a room with other people and I his father coached all three of his sons who all went and signed contracts with with professional baseball teams all graduated from college. It was phenomenal story. So it's been given us this opportunity to honor our volunteer coach of the year. That always usually brings the house down. So that's been very special as a way of sort of really being able to share what we do with with a larger audience. And what would you know so obviously right now? We're in the situation where up to that point. We were reaching almost forty thousand kids a year mostly in California but also in other states who otherwise wouldn't have a coach and be able to play sports through coaching corps and then Cova nineteen hit. And what's been so kind of gratifying? These very difficult times that our our staff has been redeployed. What we do well as we have the.

"You know before Tony it was kind of a I remember. An eighty one heck was as funny year. 'cause it was strike shortened. What we made the playoffs and my dad didn't even go to Kansas City for the first round thinking. Well we're going to be in the play-offs every year well. He learned the hard way. That isn't that easy And so there was this sort of period of of fallow period after that. Where are parm system had not gotten very good yet and we weren't that good and we sort of came back down to probably not playing over our heads and so bright before. Tony we were. We weren't very good at all and so one of the your point. One of the key factors was Tony. Saying yes. One of the key factors with Jerry. Reinsdorf what he said was the worst baseball decision he ever made which was firing tawny and right and I think one of the reasons Tony did come was the fact that he knew that our farm system was about to become one of the best. And start churning out rookies of the year and I remember that winter meeting before I WANNA say. It was. Eighty seven eighty six. Where just a bunch of things worked and you know from signing a Dave Henderson and Dave. That didn't create a lot of bells and whistles but as he turned out to be one of our very you know and just everything we did from that to the we ended up. This is baseball ball carte stuff but trading for Bobby Welch Radio Griffin and a three team trade which was kind of a new thing at the time and just everything fell in place and from there it just built to then to nineteen eighty eight and we were. We were really pretty good. You might say pretty good pretty good at this. Those were such fun. Teams really must have been a to be part of them do what? What are your favorite memories are or moments from from some of those years? Well Gosh I there too many frankly but well again and speaking of things falling in place how? `Bout you know this guy who was Kinda released day Stewart coming from the scrap heap and we weren't very good and he coming to us. And then Tony. You know pitches him. In his first verse. Game as a manager at Fenway Park against Roger Clemens. He wins that and he never loses a game against Roger. Clements is in Oakland. I think and he went. I think nine and one or eight and one lifetime against clements and the only loss was I think when he was with Texas before that? So that's a memory. I'll never forget. Was that opening game at Tony. Larussa zero with Dave Stewart and And on and on and Bobby Welsh's twenty something game wins in nineteen that ninety? I think it was where and and I remember a game that day Stewart. I mean I remember some of the ones that aren't as obvious. Frankly Susan but there was a game against the red sox a home game that Dave Stewart pitched and he prided himself in. You know pitching complete games and I think that game. It was one nothing game. Somebody like Glenn Hubbard. It hit home. Run or something. And and he. He struck out the side in the ninth inning against the Boston. Red Sox I think one of the strike us with somebody like Jim Rice and I think he threw ten pitches and that and it was electric so those are kind of obscure memories but Or how Dennis Eckersley help us not get too old too fast because whatever the outcome was which was almost always something positive. It happened really fast. Strike one strike. Two one outs two outs So there's just so many it was it was. They were special teams with a really special group of guys. I mean they're you know. I know that Joan Ryan has a new book coming out about team chemistry which I can't wait to read But and they some people will say well if you win. That's you're GonNa have good team chemistry but there's more I believe there's more to that. And they were a bunch of really good guys and think Bob Melvin would tell you right now. He's got to going to. These are really bunch of good guys. Yeah big personalities on on those eighty obviously go there were. Saco and Ricky and they were you know. Here's an interesting facts. We broke the all time. Wrote Attendance Record Record in the American League during that era and eclipsing a New York Yankee team. I don't remember what year that they had the the road attendance record in the American league but we broke it. So as we ended up those guys had swagger they were Kinda rockstars if you will and In some of those games I think they're just when they they. They went on the field. They they had a better chance of winning because the other team felt like they. Didn't you know we've heard the phrase a lot where pitchers when I know this guy's pitching we we? We think we have a good chance to win. It felt that way a lot for many of those games and we have you know. We broke the bay area. I think attendance record at the time before the giants built our beautiful new stadium. Two point nine million. But that's not terrible in the old Oakland Coliseum right and it was because a credit that these these guys were you know people wanted.

"Hello and welcome to as plus the San Francisco Chronicle's podcast on the Oakland A.'s. And Major League Baseball. I'm your host chronicle as beat writer Susan's lesser and today. We welcome Walter Jay Haas the as former CEO. Wally will tell us what he's been doing since his family sold the team in one thousand nine Hundred Five his involvement with coaching corps. And he'll talk about his unique perspective on the current work stoppage in baseball coming up next on as plus today on the as plus podcast we continue our as gone by series with a former as CEO. Walter Jay Haas better known to most of us during the as Wally Haas son of former owner. Walter Haas Wally was an interesting time to be talking to you. There are seemed like some some current parallels with some of the situations that you're ownership group Dealt WITH YOU GUYS. Sold the team in one thousand nine hundred five to the shot Hoffman Group. How difficult a decision was that at the time because Baseball was coming off of the second. Strike you guys had to deal with as owners. Well at least I think it was more than the second strike. But you're right. I mean we were just talking about it. In eighty one. First year the players went on strike an interesting. That was our first year. Billy Ball with Billy Martin and if we played a full year I believe we would have had the largest increase in attendance. Obviously the bar is pretty low and we inherited the team from Charlie Finley in in in sports in any sport between one thousand nine hundred and eighty one but of course losing eighty games sorta make that go away but in ninety five when we sold the team it was difficult We were just coming off a very difficult time with baseball terrible acrimony with the players which fortunately since then I think ownership is in players have kind of learned particularly honors that we need to somehow partner better than we did which there's But we you know ninety four they cancel the world series and what really was the the motivating factor behind the sale. Was that my father was getting very ill and There wasn't enough interest in the family to continue to own the team. So for me personally. It was a double loss. Having to go through very difficult sale of the team that unlike most businesses you get pretty emotionally attached. Or You shouldn't be involved in sports I think frankly And then even more so knowing that my father was was not going to be around for much longer so it was it was. It was a tough time but it was the the decision. That wasn't a hard decision. I knew we had to do it and I think what it took. It was commendable that my father put as one of the preconditions that The team needed to stay in in Oakland and hurry for the community but it made it even more difficult negotiation. You might say. Yeah Kinda limits here. The Group of people tackling in the in the overused word of leverage. There wasn't much of it but I think the best news has been that here. We are in twenty twenty although right now is a very unusual time. Obviously in the as are still in Oakland But I think it's a it's just another example for me. Frankly and I said this when the as were good enough to induct my father into their hall of fame last summer that I believe in obviously I'm not the most objective person that I thought that Walter Highs Junior was truly the gold standard for what a community could hope for an an owner of a professional sports team. I do believe that yeah. There's so much love your your whole family especially your dad. Among as fans it was such a great time in as history and one of the things that has struck me recently During this time bill baseball is again going through very difficult. Stretch again not having games of course new and in this case no one. No one's at fault. It's the current a virus shut down And there are some more difficult financial decisions among the things. Your Dad decided during that Ninety four strike when things were were When play was stopping was to continue to pay everyone there were no layoffs. There were no furloughs Ridiculously expensive undertaking with no games going on But what do you recall of those talks because that's a difficult decision But in the end you guys took care of all your people. We did You know it's I can't I can't give you all of the specifics 'cause I don't remember them. Frankly but it. It's very much in line. With just the way he ran Levi Strauss and company and is caring for people and believing in people and I honestly when I think the thing back way back. In those days he took the greatest pride with Levi's booth. We were manufacturing all of our jeans and pretty much in the United States and the factory workers the distribution centers very south of the Earth. Caring blue collar workers. They gave him the most joy. And they're Levi's has been around for over one hundred sixty years and we've gone through in the company's gone through world wars depressions pandemics and in many of those times. They they did everything they could to keep the factories open and keep the workers working So maybe in small ways certainly a much smaller business as word and is that it was the right thing to do for us at the time and Tried to focus people and our and our staff at the time in towards the community and in in giving back. Yeah it was. It was a real back. I think if you will for for baseball you know the the perception of rich players and richer owners not being able to figure out a way to play. The Games has never played well in the public. Frankly there are no winners there. This is a whole different deal right now. Obviously that would be chartered. Unchartered waters for sure having rented a club. as CEO. How do you kind of feel for everybody in this situation because there are potentially very tough decisions that have to be made? The longer you know games go without being played or potentially not being played in home stadiums and moving elsewhere refunds having to be given no. Tv Army coming in very much. I I think the thing that where it's not the same is this is. There's so much unknowns here right the I mean eventually know in a strike or a work stoppage that people will come back. But you don't know how long you know there's just a lot of unknowns about you know there's obviously still bait in the country is is we being too safe not being safe enough and in so the unknowns of when and how I think make this issue this you know cove in nineteen even more complicated and difficult for sports teams companies to try to figure out. Yeah Yeah it's It's definitely so I do feel for I is is we were discussing beforehand from my sense baseball. Maybe is the toughest just from the sheer timing of it. All sort of hitting pretty much two weeks before the season start was going to start in and that's always sort of that moment of hope where all of the teams feel. Okay you know. Hope Springs eternal like in spring and everything. It's so it's all just a very difficult situation baseball. Such a so ingrained in the fabric of society and especially Spring and then it goes away completely. It seems like a just and Susan are you and I have been so involved with it but spring training is just part of that sort of hope right. There's something that's very very positive and hopeful about it. So Yeah Yeah. It's tough stuff. Now let's Let's talk a little bit about some of those great teams in the of the eighties early nineties. Obviously you're ownership came. You came in and you hired really top notch people at the very top Tony Larussa Sandy Alderson. And then things started to take off. What was your view like as as things were sort of on the upward trend maybe before championships started. Well I want to take even farther back. You know way back when and it is we were kidding about how much how long ago it was but we really did inherit a more of enfranchised. Charlie just let it go to the bone and so we. We inherited something that had no scouts and no coaches and it's a credit OBVI- starting with my father who was willing to give us the resources to do this. But it's a real credit to my brother-in-law Roy's and heart who was running the team initially to to build a world class organization and My Dad had this saying. That was a moniker. Levi's that was a tagline for many years it said quality never goes out of style and I really think he sort of took the the piece around quality with him as almost a mission statement for us and building the organization. And sure enough to your point. One of the first hires Roy made was his law partner in Sandy. And you know. Here's this guy. What does he know about baseball? Look what he was became a pioneer for baseball. And how baseball is looked upon now and so yes and they built this farm system and and Sandy did to. The you know three rookies of the year. And.

S. were of switching out of the KCBS ring central New Zealand joined by doctor Amesha dolls a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins center for health security so Dr what does this tell us given the understanding that if somebody died from the C. probably picked it up well before that right we know that deaths usually occur in the second week of illness or even longer so if there is individual dying in early February in Santa Clara county likely were infected in January and then there's an incubation period so they're likely were exposed even before that so it's clear now that the first U. S. case that was the email on January fifteenth in the state of Washington likely wasn't the first case and we all knew that based on what we what we knew about the virus being able to spread efficiently from human to human being present in China since November so we clearly missed some of the early cases coming in you know there's been this sort of an anecdotal buzz going around among people to sail you know I feel kind of weird back in filling the blank November December maybe I had it does this give more credence to that kind of thinking it does give it some more credence but I wouldn't probably take it all the way back to November November I think likely definitely in January I would have a lot of suspicion and maybe late December as well because you have to look at how this outbreak was holding and when it got to a point where there was enough critical mass of infections in China to start sending cases other places and I think that probably late December it would likely hear and it certainly was here by the beginning of the beginning of January you know there's this other emerging knowledge that the deaths that we're attributing her scribing to covert nineteen at this point must not be the full number because there been so many more deaths in many places in the world than there were a year ago in the same month what what do you think that the delta is that we'll have the the factory should be applying it's hard to say because there are going to be death like these in Santa Clara county that work it should be to terracotta virus that would direct their direct result of coronavirus infections in our testing protocols made it hard to come up with that many answer at the time of death but it's also the case that people are likely going to die from heart attacks and strokes that directors that are gonna be indirectly attributed to the virus because Haas people are not going to the hospital hospitals are in places that are hot spots are basically barren so there is definitely going to be a bigger toll that that that just the pandemic numbers itself and and there is going to have to be a multiplier because we are going to see except that because of the pandemic but maybe not directly because of infection in this ocean going back and and re examining previous debts what more will it tell us I mean is it just an academic exercise purely or does it add to something we can use going forward well it does help us understand when this virus first appeared in the United States which will give us a better idea of how widespread it is and where we are on the epidemic curve which helps us predict the future and understand what our planning needs might be understand what they're not denominator people infected are which then influences what we use for hospitalization rates and we're putting those into models and what we look at a case fatality rate in there with those in the model so we can help us if we go back and find more and more evidence of earlier spread that helps us know where we are where we're going with this

"Fifth Formula One car that it hopes for better than troublesome machine which is last year one time that was immediately obvious is delivery. Is it new. The old get to that shortly but first of all I want to introduce sports technical editor Jake books who lake now. You've already been taking an in depth. Look at the images that are available today. So what did you make it passes new creation. Well first of all I just want to say I'm really happy seasons back with us With this mass hoster sorry hysteria. This time yeah. And we've got new cars finally talk about so I think the main thing to take away is apart from it's rather lovely. livery is very similar. The Ferrari from last year isn't it. That's a good thing for have come any worse than last year. Let's be honest. The car was incredibly problematic. Arctic last year and there was this huge problem with guessing the ties within a window. The you know they could work and worked for a sustained period of time so in qualifying there would be absolutely fine fine In low conditions like temperature conditions. That would be absolutely fine but when it was twenty five thirty degree race get five laps and they were falling through the failed. So this is A bit of a new concept for them And hopefully it will work a little bit better now if you had to figure data on how much of this Nico Nico is. The Old Ferrario. Looks like the old Ferrari. Whatever you think Well let's go through each individual so the front wing for example is incredibly for our ask now. They trout something like this in Brazil practice last year number other races as well to try to determine come in by the problems lay in their car last year it seemed to be with the front wing. So they've come. This far design tested it in practice. And they've kind of stuck with it. The House one in doing things as well at least looking for are we doing. Yeah so a couple of others so for example Williams or something a little bit similar which actually raced In Brazil rebel brought something similar as well so that seems to be almost a theme I don't know if we'll see The coming days whether that is actually a recurring theme that we'll see but how certainly kicked off There's a number of other Ferrari hallmarks as well for example so the engine cover that we can see that if you look at it straight. They told me that was very specific to the Ferrari last year This little cut the engine cover and all that sort of something had lost year. But they've kept. I thought they've managed to shrink it down a little bit. Ferrari deadlocked yet The plate designed as well in particular very similar to Ferrari say this theme head the Little Bits and say this is very similar Ferrari. They've changed the nose design as well. So there's like Singapore Ferrari star designs. Say again this homos going on here and it's definitely more Ferrari. This seems to be one very specific taking. Why is the Triangle Abbott? So unique the Ferrario white wife. Ravi Jane Okay. So what a number of teams have started with try and take out some of the radiates from within the side poets and bring them above the errands hake towards the engine power unit components and that seems to be trying to reduce the overall draft disciples. Jason Shrink them in a little bit further and you see a lot of teams doing that and up here. It's often be fear in this area. You like but far as decided to stick with more conventional if you keep the radiators in here so you can kind of see the bulge hair with radiators of slumped down wits and so this triangle shape possible Usually have an here and here and like kind of although it's keeping so center of gravity down as well as streamlining the flow to the rare or if the car but obviously the other design wouldn't be you know wouldn't be good if if everybody's using it so it's kind of like a split kind of design hair and oversee this kind of design west. Ferrari I guess now from what we've seen so far because they're seeming the house will be bringing so maybe extra parts of things. Things are visible on these pictures to testing for the star of the season to being. It's GonNa kill the problems that plagued the team Austria. I mean looking at a picture. It's kind of hard to you. See it can't be any worse than lost yet not only in terms of performance but for long term operations for the team as well because if they can pick it up turn the car around take the bad taste of twenty nineteen out of their mouths of create something. That's a little bit more like the House. We used to saying. Then it should absolutely fine but if they can't turn around that's when gene has says okay is survival. LONG-TERM OPTION CAMERA KEEP investing into a team. That's not performing and so I think a lot hinges on this. I think it has to be better if everyone is gonNA keep. Their jobs has to be better very good. Now just put you on the spot again. JBL D think we've seen any cues or clues what we see. What about the Ferrari because either rules are stay with? This should be no changes. We can be about evolution. Not Revolution Russian. Any clues from what has released stories. You just catching that team up to where the team is so closely linked to was. I think usually we've always looked at the house and gone is. Is this going back many hormones to Ferrari but there were few parts of last year's car similar to the car before rather than providing a clue into what the you know that protects our team is going to produce Pops I think the rare is miss telling example A couple of tests for I did last. Austria was with the exhaust pipe. Waste Gate Position and they've gone for waste gave of the exhaust and that's presumably what they're gonNA run trout season so they presumed scrapped scrapped. The waste gate design. They tested last year. But I think the rest of the body work again houses just sort of following in the footsteps of Ferrari audit will ever be on level hugging but I think the just trying to keep up it worked for Ferrari last year. So they'll do the same this year. obviously twenty twenty one. That's going to be very very different date but I think for this year at least will provide some degree of free performance joining us today as a sports reporter. Luke Smith welcome Louis thank me. Hey who could get you. You see what we're doing with season and analyzing everything in depth as we can and You know things are coming thick and fast get into in the coming weeks coming into twenty twenty how to how to Tubby year. Last year we had the the rich energy fiasco. Bt's young awards call it there and all the things that came around that Let's go ahead owns. It must be said but Jose that drivers here and there is obviously the problems with the correlation with that with the floors and the technical things not working as team. Say Do you think the twenty twenty is all about having a smooth year for the team festival on the on the driving from the sporting side but also the business side of things as well. It's about Gene Haas Canes Future. Is this a viable project for the future commercially. Can it work and basically why does he want to race in Formula One and I think last year the honeymoon period really ended for us they went from being punching above their weight facing the front in the midfields who really really struggling That reality will bite foot. Everyone at some point is going to happen. They've just got to get through. The ablest possible Romain Grosjean like Kevin Magnussen. It's been made very clear to them that they cannot have a repeat of the clashes from lost. Yeah we talked about this. Little Ferrari Crossover I think some of the tensions that Ferrari can see a similar thing in house. Maybe even both drivers know that they've got to really this just tidy up their acts. Make sure there's no repeat of that because it costs the team a lot of opportunities and when they had Chances score points to a few and far between than instant such a system and they hit each other. That was a really big setback. So yeah I think they need to. They need sought that out. I post rich energy that saga being the boss now is a very good thing. I think it's very very stable for the team now. I think Jean House has made clear from day one. He's not enough one to be traveling around in fourteenth being fifteenth place. He wants to be a fighting his greatest possible. How these stabilizing to was the whole rich energy saga I think very much We had a primary of the netflix sneeze. He's areas coming out and not allow talk much about the rich energy. Saga is a big part of that. And you see more than I think came out the time about how much of an impact pat on the hottest team because it didn't look good and there were a lot of things said of social media as we know about about what happened and I think it just didn't give the team image for a good news story. I think Hocine and F one up to last year coming in American same. That's good liberty as well. I'm being successful from day one. It's then have I think twenty nine Lee really really solid site. You still think that was a big setback. Definitely Magnusson invasion the constant contact and to be having through the middle. She was that much of a surprise to see that happen. Or was it just a natural consequence of the situation that team found itself surprising that happens so regularly and that it was sort of really running story through the season I think. Ah the host didn't jump on it quickly enough. No see you always want to manage your drive as well. We don't want to sort of say one strike and you're right you want to give them a chance but they keep happening and I think that you've got to drivers who are very Very passionate very determined and I think they if they were with any other team they would be seen is the more fiery member of that team. Scott let's Supply is going to happen. I think they both quick drive isn't moccasins. Proven that in particular with the last few years I think then grown will know eat does need to up his game coming this season. The team said they couldn't pin the biomonitoring policies on the drivers. The call was fundamentally flawed. They know that I and I think the hope is that the stability and the regulations into this means that the mistakes laskey will be avoided now the before guy. That's twenty eight team finished fifth and they construct Its best result so far on real high water mark for the knee squad. Didn't you can get back. There has too much happened. First of all The team itself. But who are making steps forward. I think probably the the second half lies more the concern. Everyone else's made this big progress forward and we soar McLaren lost. I think that proves that you can't have a really difficult year and signed everything being around him really make that big. Step up the grid But I think is is in a very different position. I mean doesn't have all the experience and know the history clarin dozen I think consistency more So I think it's GonNa be a big offer them but we've seen that midfielders been so so so tight on occasion last year. Was the midfield spe in Australia. It was in front of the Midfield Austria Austria Kevin Maximum qualifying. That was proof of that. They could produce on occasion so Yeah I think they just need.

"Energy twitter account hosts publicly that they are canceling their contract with Haas and it is because <hes> Haas was has beaten so badly by rebel at Austria and the team turned inside your bad performance that Austria that the position of the of the rich energy tweeter was basically we aren't we're here to beet red ball and performance like we saw at Austria is unacceptable and also we want to get out of F. One anyway because it is getting so P._C.. Bring back the grid girls yeah so they went like they want full Gamer Gate or at least Lord <hes> in in this in this notice on twitter but then things get really strange everyone under reacts Haas basically like kind of play dumb about the entire situation that like <hes> we've got far as we know sponsors ship is still on contract. It's still good <hes> we're not sure what's going on with with like they don't pay every race. I'm sure I'm sure it's like the type of deal that has paid upfront. I've got some quotes here from Steiner team. Principal of Haas Quo Gunter Jesus is what kind of this race fans dot net who I think dita rank in here has been asking him questions over the British Grand Prix weekend signer says quote. There's a clear line they pay us for advertising thing and we do our job. I don't really care about that stuff. If somebody goes on twitter you know there is a point where I'm like. I'm over fifty years old not in kindergarten anymore. <hes> there's more problems than that for him to be honest he should focus on that and not how we start secured. Even he knows something was going on in the background. Maybe led him to do that tweets. I don't know yeah I mean I think something is probably going on that. <hes> <hes> story was trying to get ahead of or distract from but so in the wake of this post you haas saying yeah we don't know what what what the deal is. It's not our problem and and then the rich energy account starts tweeting some more basically alleging now that whatever hoster saying whatever the rich energy spokespeople folks people elsewhere in the company are saying the sponsorship has done <hes> rich and <hes> an hoster are finished and it's William Stories Company and the other shareholders can't do anything <hes> but they're trying trying to and there's sort of this allegation that they're trying to oust William Story and take his company away and then the rich energy also starts posting like really explicit basically just unredacted like wheel memos from lawyers claiming to represent Haas and where this so hard that we're not even close as to the end so yeah so Haass's pointing out a couple of things first of all that if rich is ending the sponsorship with Haas they are in breach of contract. They are <hes>. They're obligated there. Sponsorship deal runs through. I December twenty twenty two. Oh my God oh my God I did not know that yeah and so there was a payment schedule and then haase's lawyers basically said but you know what fine we're not gonNA hold you to that. We're just going to make you pay the lump sum up front as part of breaching the green trash yeah so and that would have come to forty four million upfront by the way in background of all this white bikes is saying by the we haven't been paid like they are not the right by this point they have been ordered to pay damages and court fees to white bikes and white is out there saying that that money hasn't shown up which is like forty the grand right yeah so even small amounts are not coming through forty four million seems tough to get from this from this company so then basically like story makes clear it is him behind the twitter account so now he is like the true voice of rich energy and he is also saying now that the Haas team was involved in trying to oust him from rich energy so now he's saying that like Haas was plotting plotting against him along with his former business partners and so that you know basically accusing them of well actually.
