You know we live in strange times. Some people could say that small businesses are perpetually in strange times but I'm curious about what what you think are like reasons why? Few companies survive fewer even than that flourish and most of them fail. Yeah Great Question. There are a few reasons. Why I think it happens I think the problem stems I from. The fact that we really never taught how to be leaders of teams. We've been taught. How To be good engineers or good finance people or maybe a good mathematician. Whatever it might be something marketing or or Business Administration. But never sort of leadership or leading teams, which is really I think what a great leader does. We do a lot of things that are that are wrong or. Mostly. Wrong Because, we've never been taught anything differently since most businesses fail over time. there's some stats out there. I was just looking at them in preparation for this yesterday and. I looked over I, think from the Bureau of Labor Statistics over a twenty five year period. You go from about a fifty percent chance of lasting five years to about a sixteen percent chance of lasting twenty five.

With Prop. 22, Uber and Lyft hope to keep drivers as contractors in California
"Proposition. Twenty two is on the ballot in California right now, it's an initiative sponsored by Uber Lift Jordache and other Gig work platforms that would exempt at based ride hailing companies, Uber and lift basically and food delivery companies from a new state law that requires them to classify drivers as employees. Instead of independent contractors give companies have poured nearly two hundred million dollars into the yes on prop twenty. Two campaign that makes it the most expensive ballot initiative in state history they also threatened to leave California or dramatically raise prices. If it doesn't pass a loss loss, though could embolden other states to insist that APP companies hire their drivers. So let's dig into this fight in quality assurance. The Friday segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story Sam Harnett is a reporter for. In San Francisco. The good companies are saying if this doesn't pass, we're going to have to potentially suspend service in California and if it passes Uber lift and the rest of the companies will be able to continue operating. The way they were we're operating before their workers would be contractors that means they wouldn't have basic employee protections, unemployment shirts, workers, compensation, and the way this proposition is written, that will be pretty much locked in. There's this seven eighths provisions, which means if it takes seven days of the Senate and assembly in California to make any changes to this proposition and local jurisdictions, cities and counties couldn't make any changes to give gig workers more benefits. Do these sort of same restrictions. This kind of like overturn ability does that apply even if the companies are forced to classify their workers as employees? Well, if you know if proposition twenty, two dozen pass workers will become employees but you know these companies still have billions of dollars and they're gonNA, keep fighting this to claw I mean they see this as an existential threat to their business model so on the one side, if prop twenty passes, the gig model looks pretty solid I mean maybe something federally could lead to a change maybe there could be a lawsuit over procedurally in in the proposition like maybe that seven as provision I mentioned. But it's going to be there on the flip side. If proposition twenty, two dozen pass, you can expect another self of the GIG. Companies. Pretty Pretty. quickly I mean. This is a California ballot proposition but I wonder what implications could it have if it doesn't pass for the GIG, economy nationally Oh huge. I think everybody nationally and internationally is looking at this case you know over the last couple years, you've seen the California Supreme Court the California legislature, and now the attorney general go after these companies and tell them that you know your workers are actually employees and they need basic protections, and if the GIG companies are successful and using the ballot box to defy the three branches of government and maintain their business model I, think a lot of other states and a lot of other countries are going to see that as well the companies they want right

Finding Your Marketing Mentor
"Welcome to marketing trends I mean phase on host of marketing trends, and today we are joined by special guests mark. How're you doing fantastic cited to be here, marketing, Trans and hang out with you guys. Yeah. Excited to to chat with you. You Know You have your serial entrepreneur. You have a bunch of really cool stuff going on you have a book coming out that we're. GonNa. Talk about and everything in between. So let's get started. How did you get into marketing in the first place? Yeah. Well, you know I actually went to school and I thought I was going to study economics and then I took a marketing class and said man, this is for me and I took every marketing class I could take an it's so funny because when I went. To school and not trying to age myself here. But then even have a marketing degree. That's so crazy when I look back and think of it. But I literally took every marketing class that I could take from the universities that I was at and I just loved it. In fact, before it became an entrepreneur, I actually was the director of marketing for U. S.. A. Today. That's. A little known fact that people don't don't know talk about a product that changes every single day was fascinating and really cut my teeth on the pace at which marketing can happen. But it led me to being an entrepreneur, the entrepreneurial today, and I, have to tell you that marketing is at the core of every single business that I get involved in if I don't believe in. The product if I don't have passionate around the marketing, then I don't do it. Yes. So flush forward to today tell us a little bit about the companies that that you're involved with what you're working on. Yeah. You know often I get introduces a serial entrepreneur and what what is that that just means it's an entrepreneur that has his hands and multiple businesses I early on I. Would have won business and I started selling those businesses and I've actually sold seven businesses and so and I just there's nothing more validating than to start a business and it becomes of such value that someone is willing to pay you for it and so I got in the phase where I I was looking for more businesses that I could do that and I found myself involved. In multiple businesses now, I will tell you that that can be a detriment because you lack some focus that sometimes your business needs I can tell you right now it was a massive positive to me because when everything when the world changed earlier this year I had multiple businesses going and I'm here to tell you to my businesses within five days like five days of changes in. The world and those two businesses were literally done and I'm not sure I'm going to start him back up. They were more of physical presence stage based event based businesses and I think they're just done and so but I had some other businesses that were not in that way. In fact, one business that was in e-commerce and we started noticing that business started driving before the. World, kind of figured out what was going on, and by the time we were in the full-scale quarantine that business was up over five hundred percent year over year and what I love about business is that I've got this little philosophy that I learned from my mentor Kevin Harrington who I co wrote the Book Mentor to Millions and I would I would study him and say how? Do. You pick businesses to get involved in and he goes mark I just follow the eyeballs and I'm like follow the eyeballs and he's like, yeah I mean when I was in as seen on TV are when I was in infomercials, people watching TV and then they started moving to the Internet. So I created as seen on TV, DOT COM 'cause that's where the eyeballs were going. And now he's in a lot of businesses that are relying on social media and more modern means of of media because that's where the eyeballs are. So while I was sitting there with a business that was you know any commerce and also that for all the eyeballs went everybody's sitting at home and their their shopping from home in I've got this business that all of a sudden. Just blows up and I'm like boom to businesses have just stalled out and I've reallocated all my staff at NF leading anybody go and I read purpose them and pointed them towards the eyeballs which was ECOMMERCE and now I'm here to tell you that you know I chose Kevin Hearings as a mentor because I wasn't scaling businesses to a level that I thought I was capable. Of and come to find out it was me that was holding them back. He taught me what real scale looks like and I'm actually on my way to my first one, hundred, million dollar business all because I followed the eyeballs I was in the swim lane where everybody showed up and started swimming, and that's advice that I give all the time to people as they're trying to. Decide where to start a business what businesses start and I just say where are the eyeballs pointed where people looking if you start a business in the path of that, it has a reasonably good chance of being successful. So my principal business right now is ecommerce and then I also have a business I love physical products, and so I, try digital product and I just wasn't that Good at it and so physical product i. know I understand I like it. I can touch it. I know how to produce it another maximize it, and so I started taking what I learned in funnel marketing and applying it to physical products and found that physical products are just powerful inside a funnel marketing. So I have an Amazon Slash e commerce business that that sells products on. Twenty nine different virtual channels, and then I have a funnel based business that sells products through marketing funnels, all throughout different social media and wherever all's traffic is at. So those are my two principal businesses. They are deeply rooted in marketing and they are thriving right now even during these kind of crazy times
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Unveils "Pandemic Budget"
"Lightfoot the budget proposal includes a ninety four, million dollar property tax hike gas tax hike and layoffs as well as eliminating unfilled positions carol it seems like there are not that many maybe just a few good choices to turn to when you've got a one point two, billion dollar deficit. Brandis I think you don't even want to say good choices. Because, there are none. And you could route around for crop corporate head tax for transaction tax neither of which is going to pass muster of for most of the city council, a a number of other remedies that would need state legislative approval. There are no good choices, and then you say, do we go deeper into the rainy day fund immediately in the answer probably is no not right now because the pandemic is going to bring us maybe third wave of emergencies. So there's nothing cheerful about this only bad options. The mayor also stressed quote. Congress do your job to urge funding for cities towns. People are going to be receiving layoff notices on March first heather city employees. I would imagine between now and then a pretty anxious wondering whether or not they're going to be on the chopping block when that happens. That's right. It's a really a between a rock and a hard place and I think the mayor said, well, at least we can. We can. We have enough money in the bank to sort of put off this pain in the hopes that it something does pass the Senate and get signed either by a press, a president trump or future president biden and potentially But that's that's really hard on families and we heard mayor like talk. About that saying she knew she grew up in a family that lived paycheck to paycheck and that had to rely on food thinks giveaways when her father lost her job and I think that wears on her but it will not blunt criticism from progressive groups and others who say that this budget will really land hardest on the poorest chicagoans because of course, if you're living paycheck to paycheck and you might not have a job come. March. Second. That's very difficult place to be especially at a time were really high unemployment and the mayor also emphasized that there would be no reduction of service despite requiring furlough days for Non Union employees. Here's what she said sees and layoffs. We are also seeking five furlough days from all non union workers and I will lead by example and take those five furlough days myself. And we have worked with every city department to make sure that these personnel reductions will not result an immaterial decrease in the delivery of services to our residents. Amanda isn't going to be hard for residents and taxpayers to believe that services will remain the same under these difficult circumstances if you if you don't have some influence on the job some days. Well. There are rules around what can and can't be done in somebody is on furlough I'm going to guess that Mayor Lori lightfoot leading by example will still be working as mayor. There is no time off. So many of these are high level positions I don't think that you're going to see a dramatic cut or of the many things that we're going to worry about in the in the budget that that is going to be, and I will add that it's sort of difficult to measure these. Days, anyways, some departments presumably have a little bit less going on because of COVID nineteen end less demand for those services. Others are needed more than ever because residents are dependent on that but you're also giving services to residents in different ways again, because many people are staying at home. So it's all just going to be difficult to measure, but I think a choice that the mayor had to make particularly issues looking to these other choices of layoffs and raising property taxes she had to do some furloughed. Parents the mayor also says that she does not support so-called defunding the police, but she does support. Changing which first responders answer calls? How big is changing the first responder model while she's talking about a pilot program, which we don't know the specifics of yet. But this is something that is united people on both sides of this quote unquote defunding police battle. I've had so many police, officers and first responders tell me over the years that they don't want to be responding to. These certain types of calls, domestic issues, mental health people having a breakdown equipped to do it. They want to do police work, and they believe that work should be left up to mental health providers. So there is a program in Los, Angeles they've been doing this in Los Angeles where those calls go to there's a psychiatric mobile unit that runs around the city and offers services. And I've had first responders here. Tell me we need to do what L. A. is doing. So maybe this is what the mayor's talking about and it's it's so strange that you know defunding police engender so many emotions on both sides and yet this is actually something that police officers and activists actually agree on something. Yeah. Community agrees on this as well. Heather what's next? We're going to see a very tough battle in city. Council. I think we are So I think the biggest sticking point is going to be not only the ninety four, million dollar total property tax side but the mayor also wants to change the way the city levies property tax every year by changing it to an automatic increase, which is tied to the increase, the cost of living which is set by the federal government every year, and she says that that will avoid big property tax hike sort of on it every so often basis but I think that there are going to be some older minute we're GONNA have to. Sort of take a deep breath before they decide whether to vote for that because, of course, the municipal elections are just around the river bend at in two thousand and twenty three, and that could make winning reelection and more difficult. I. WanNa follow up here because I'm confused, we've got the one point two billion dollar budget gap, but there's also hundred million dollar budget gap this year because a revenues came in so much lower than what intimidated obviously because of covid how is that? Does that money just get sweeped into the next year I don't understand how that works. For the stint as might what I do right now. Is being filled by refinancing city data. So essentially, they're taking debt that it is at a higher interest rate. They're sort of refinancing it hoping to get a lower interest rate and they're taking those savings and then using that to cover the
Dept. of Justice Accuses Google of Illegally Protecting Monopoly
"We we turn turn today today to to title title fifteen fifteen of of the the United United States States code code section section two, two, which which reads reads in in relevant relevant part part every every person person who who shall shall monopolize or attempt to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several states shall be deemed of a felony and unconvicted thereof shall be punished by fine not exceeding one hundred, million dollars if a corporation. So, if you don't know now, you know the corporation and question of course, is Google which found itself on the receiving end of an antitrust lawsuit today filed by the Department of Justice and eleven state of general. So as we do when technology leads the news we've gotten molly would the host marketplace tech on the phone to make a smart? Hey, molly. AK So So many questions number one is who's been around for a long time. It's been John Norma's for longtime dominant for a very long time what took so long for this to happen. Yeah, well, it's really interesting because, and in fact, the Department of Justice notes this in their filing. There is legally a difference between being really really really big and really dominant as you know and between maintaining that dominance in a way that crosses over into illegality, and so it takes a while to make that case basically that maintaining the dominance is the illegal part whereas it's fine to just be gigantic route What's The counterargument? What's Guna say? We're we're just doing our businessmen nobody here, but US chickens. I mean, yes Google counter argument is that this is a flawed lawsuit and that there are plenty of options out there for search their official blog post rebutting the filing of this lawsuit included a lot of gifts in which people use being Microsoft's having. So if you know anybody who does definitely, let me know I want to talk to them. And then they counterargument to kind of the lawsuit itself which a lot of pundits said. N Even. Legal Scholars people who worked on for example, Microsoft case in the nineties said you know this? This case could have been bigger. There were suggestions that it was being rushed even over the objection of some career lawyers and state attorneys general in order to get out before the election. And the scope of it is very limited to search the counter to all of that. Of course, as you gotta start somewhere and these cases are a big deal right an and searches is kind of the low hanging fruit. Let me just back up a minute to that to that bing thing you are, and we've talked about this on making me smarter our podcast, your devoted user of Duct Dot Gov for its privacy implications. Of course, it's more protective than usual, but also the point being. How many really good options are there if you want comprehensive search, it's got to be Google right because they've got all the data and everything. Well, there are a couple arguments around that. One is that people perceive ruled have better search results because it's filter bubble because who knows a lot about you? So it will say Oh if you the example, actually that lawyer I talked to today gave was that maybe there's a plumber in your area and a lot of people have used that plumber before and so they'll search they'll service give you that search option I. But in fact, you might not want that you might want somebody who's better vetted or something along those lines. The Art. The core of the argument that the Department of Justice is making here is that Google has paid a ton and a ton of money to device makers, including apple and using its own android platform to make sure that Google is the default so that every time I, for example, want to use duck duck. Oh, in a browser or on my apple device I have to. Find the setting that lets me change that default and most people don't write and let the whole thing was what got Microsoft in trouble right with back low these many years ago. The last time we had an antitrust thing was they were put s right, right? Yeah. This lawsuit impact is very, very similar to the Microsoft case someone on twitter referred to it as almost a cut paste. Well you know they can. They can do that at the Justice Department. We got a half a minute tops what now happens inside Google. They fight this thing because I imagine even though they can afford a lot of lawyers it's going to suck the life out of them. It's a big deal. It's a really big deal even if you quibble about the scope and whether they should have included advertising and data, the fact is that these cases have major impacts at it set Microsoft. Back a decade of innovation. It's at IBM back a decade back in starting nineteen, sixty, nine at and T.. So Google spends a lot of money a lot of time and is very, very distracted trying to fight this thing. Molly would the host of marketplace tech thanks. Thanks.
7 Laws of Podcasting
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm the orbital and today we are going to be talking about the seven laws of podcasting. So Neil that I've been podcasting for about been four years now a little over four years for marketing longer if you think about your growth everywhere yeah. Longer will leveling off for for seven years on that one. So it's been a long time. So seven years. For seven laws. Right. But I guess I'll kick it off I. so before I could get off meal and I did it no this podcast was going to go and we've realized that we caught onto a trend that is still taking off right now and podcasting is just going to get bigger and bigger last year the number was about seven hundred, thousand podcast in the world has probably got a lot bigger since. Then, and there's a lot of advertising dollars going into podcasting Joe, Rogan's podcast. They did a deal as spotify for over one hundred, million dollars. So it's just going to continue to be good times. It's a nice medium for people and you know the first law will say about podcasting is you know you've got to be consistent and share story around that my leveling up podcast for the first year only nine dollars. A day off of their first year after second year only thirty downloads a day, and then from there, it started compound, and then that led to that podcast is still there and now we have the mark podcast but we've been very consistent with it on the same lesson that goes over to if you're doing youtube if you're doing blogging if you're doing any type of content at all, it just it just consistency. Number two, you need half quantity the more quantity you have the more episodes you have the more listens yoga time it really does stacking compound. So don't just think that you're GONNA do well, even if you're consistent and you're pretty senior episodes every quarter or even weekly, you're not gonNA do as well as if you just did a daily with people like us John Lee Dumas, there's quite a few players who just Do daily a is more work, but you get the listens in the Dallas away quicker if you just quit way more quantity number three. So if you look at the Joe Rogan's of the world when he does video podcast, it actually gets chopped up into a lot of different pieces. So we've often talked about Omni channel and hasn't changed air if you do a video podcast like we're doing right now and you. Can make a bunch of different pieces. One sixty minute long form interview can become six mini pieces and you can put it onto youtube. You can put onto podcast whilst now you have thirteen pieces right there and then you can make little micro content for social. There's just a lot that you can do chopping things up and you can use a service like repurpose house dot io, the adding Babbit two, hundred, fifty. Dollars a month find on a five, hundred, dollar a month plan. Eventually, you can have your own team, do it for you, but that's a good way to get started with repurposing number four. You GotTa do Keyword Research. It doesn't matter what you end up talking about. If you don't have the right keywords with the title of your podcast and your descriptions, you won't get as many listens in Dallas. So Do Keyword Research. Number five seems like a dust and but still a lot of people fail in this. I, remember back in the day I was using Blue Yeti microphone and the problem with that one was I plugged it into my USB port. What you should be doing is you should be using a mixer so both nearly have a mixer read one called focus right and you can use focus right and then we both have higher pr forty microphones and so these are high quality microphones route four, hundred dollars from the Mike and the mixer. I believes anywhere from one hundred, one, hundred, fifty dollars or so you don't need a start with anything crazy but. If, you're going to be using a blue Yeti, which one hundred dollars still make sure you have a mixer because you sound a lot better and a very important thing is the quality of your sound 'cause when Neil I used to record next each other when we first started this ambiguous when we had to turn off the air conditioner, it would get really hot but also more importantly, it was really echoey and done a terrible because we're right next to each other and people said, oh you guys sound like you're recording from the bathroom Blah Blah Blah and we started getting bad rating from it it just it's not a good user experience. Number six aspirations. If you don't ask for ratings, you won't climb the charts and you won't get as many new listeners and downloads. So at the end of each podcast, there's nothing wrong with asking for ratings. Yeah and on top of that, if you're GONNA ask for the ratings, we haven't done the best job of this incentivizing people to put a rating. You'll probably get a lot more exotic just neil haven't done a good job about it number. Seven, you gotTa know your numbers. You can use look at the apple podcasts analytics look at spotify analytics as we look at where retention is and you can see retention will tell you what episode you should be doing more of. So for example, what we do episodes Seo retention might be ninety, five percent but if we start talking about how we like to plant tomatoes than our retention might be forty percent or so so it might not do as. Well, the other thing too is when we use chargeable chart able, that's how you spell it. They will show you your thirty day performance or your seven day performance for new content that you have coming out. So now I've been looking at them like, oh, well, people really latch on what we talk about certain things and they just they totally get disinterested when we talk about other things such as I don't know whether I'm just making things up. So, use chargeable has a lot of different features. It's probably the most complete podcast analytics tool out there were not affiliated and we just use the free version, but she's been really good for us.

On Monday, Driscoll's America's biggest strawberry provider said, it will start growing some of it strawberries in an indoor vertical farm that farm is run by San. Francisco AG Tech. Company. Plenty. Unlimited. Driscoll's new huge greenhouse will be in Laramie Wyoming hardly the nation's strawberry capital anticipating consumers possible objections driscoll says strawberries grown vertically without dirt or fresh air or just as tasty. Perhaps tastier than those grown on its California farms founded in twenty fourteen plenty unlimited began growing mountains of leafy Greens in a San Francisco vertical greenhouse last year. It now supplies leafy Greens to hundreds of Safeway, and Albertson's grocery stores in California. If you were to walk into its High Tech Greenhouse, you'd look up and up and up at endless walls of Kale a regular lettuce in Missoula. Mix. The company is green in more ways than one. They say, they use no GMO's and no pesticides because they don't spray for bugs plenty makes the startling claim that you don't even need to wash their produce and like other vertical farms plenty claims to use a tiny fraction of and water compared to traditional farming about one percent of land in less than five percent of water. Most vertical farms launched with Greens which grow well hydroponically and aeroponics not to mention they take less space than say tomatoes and strawberries. Moreover, local Greens are popular. They're also delicate which makes them great candidates for one of the purported benefits offered by tech indoor farms. That is if you can use controlled indoor conditions including led lights, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and recycled water to grow food on a large scale, you can put these greenhouses anywhere whether it be damned, and if you can grow strawberries in frozen Laramie Wyoming year round, you can shrink food miles the average. Plate of food travels fifteen hundred miles before it winds up on our table shrinking those food miles is good for the environment. It's also good for most produce great for grains. But now that vertical Greens have been proven, it's time to expand into other fruits and vegetables which brings us back to driscoll's the strawberry giant. It supplies a third of all strawberries in America and it's making a big investment in plenty. The Financial Times reports that high profile deal is only one of a flurry of investments signaling the news that high tech indoor farming is here to stay. Recently revel Greens. Minnesota startup raised almost seventy million dollars growing. It's total investment to two hundred million dollars using rainwater and snow. Melt. Company grows lettuce in mammoth greenhouses in California Texas and of course, it home in Minnesota with its new money rebel Greens plans to expand its Texas footprint according to the Star Tribune newspaper.
With Films and Audiences Scarce, Regal Cinemas Shuts its Doors
"From wondering I'm David Brown in this business wars daily on this Friday October night some sad news this week about the film industry. One of the biggest movie theater chains in America is Shutting Down Indefinitely Regal Cinemas is rolling up the red carpet at it's five hundred plus theaters in America last Sunday Regal's parent company sent a world announced it would suspend operations beginning yesterday cinna world has also closing more than one hundred, twenty, five theaters in the UK it's the largest. Movie Theater Operator there in the second largest in the world after rival AMC entertainment holdings according to the Wall Street. Journal the suspension could last two months or a little longer according to send a world's CEO speaking with New York Times the suspension. The second one for the company since the pandemic started affects forty thousand US employees and fifty five hundred in Britain and Ireland. Industry Trade. Paper variety call last weekend decision to suspend operations sudden and shocking officials made the choice after. MGM On Friday postponed the release of its next James Bond movie no time to die. MGM had planned to release the double o seven Caper in November. Now it's planned tentatively, we assume for next April even pre pandemic theaters depended on blockbuster films to fill seats since March studios have been postponing releases and in many cases moving them to streamers instead. But postponement of the twenty seventh bond film was a crippling blow to theaters counting on the release to make some money. This year according to variety the decision was so abrupt that Cinta world didn't even tell employees about the suspensions rather the company left thousands to learn about their fates in newspaper headlines and tweets workers who belong to the Cinema World Action, group and employee collective tweeted that the company gave them. No warning workers have been left out of discussions that should have included our voices they stated adding that to find out you may no longer have a job from the media is awful. Sin A world lost more than one and a half billion dollars in the first half of the year. The New York Times reports AMC theaters is also struggling AMC stock dropped ten percent Monday morning after cinema world's news analysts say it will have trouble staying afloat in six months unless film attendance jumps or the company raises more capital according to CNBC. With. The movie industry in Dire Straits, there's a whole lot of finger pointing as you might imagine, the CEO of Cinema World told The Wall Street Journal. Movie. Studios. Just aren't supplying films theaters need to keep operating he compared to a grocery shop without anything on the shelves but studio executives say they're postponing big releases because they can't turn a profit as because American viewers are still avoiding the theaters that have been open. All eyes have been on the Christopher Nolan action. Adventure movie tenant to jump start the more of an industry as we reported right Here, in August in normal times, pulled a couple of billion dollars billion with a B. Nolan is the most people director in Hollywood but tenants September release was lackluster to date. The movie has earned only forty five million dollars in ticket sales across the US NEW YORK. Times reports it's performed better overseas global receipts currently total three, hundred, million dollars, but the movie cost two, hundred million to make and millions more to promote for studio executives. Those numbers just don't add up and to reason enough for them to postpone the potential blockbusters like no time to die. So what will save the movie business it depends on whom you ask cinema world's chief is waging a PR war against New, York Governor Andrew Cuomo for not reopening theaters new. York. In Los Angeles are the two most important American markets for theater chains that they both remained closed as contributing to the weakness of the film business but with Covid nineteen cases climbing again in places like Brooklyn and Queens Governor Cuomo is standing firm.

Ritchie Torres: From The Bronx to Congress
"Something, I was thinking about wall preparing to talk to you is about how everything and politics and our country right now is just trump obsessed. Does it feel to you like we are paying less attention to congressional races like yours? Yes, and no Donald Trump represents an existential threat to our planet and our democracy in our social contract. So naturally, he's going to be the focus of our politics, but you know the two not mutually exclusive Donald Trump is a racist relic of the past. And the new generation of leadership the rainbow wave that has swept United States represents the future. You can think about both because when represents the past than the other represents the future and the next election is essentially a choice between the two. Do we want to turn the clock back? Would we want to move forward with the terminology describing the Rainbow Wave? I get frustrated with that personally because I think the current congressional group has nine or ten out queer people when it comes like nine or ten to me doesn't make up a wave will by wave referring analytic congress immediate t buddha. Judges the first openly LGBTQ, Bible presidential candidate. You're about to have the highest congress industry of the United States and you have nearly a thousand openly, Algebra, two candidates for public office. At every level of government we've never seen a greater quantity or diverse to the LGBTQ representation among candidates running for public office, and that's a sign of Paris and these city and state legislators like yourself. Well, hopefully feed into these more national roles as well. Look I got my start as as a volunteer community board. And then I became a volunteer in the city council. So you have to start somewhere you growing up could not look at Congress and see someone like you somebody gay so an Afro Latino you also dropped out of college. About your biography do not make the quote, unquote typical politician and so i WanNa know did you know that there was a place for you in politics and if not when did that change I never thought as poor lgbtq kit of color from the Bronx that I will ever become a United States Congress I never had LGBTQ role models growing up by rope in public housing had no conception of a world beyond the immediate boundaries of my neighborhood. The first time I met in openly lgbtq person a teacher. Is the moment that inspired me to acknowledge my sexuality for the first time for the first seventeen years of my life I had no openly lgbtq role models in my life in the Bronx I led a sheltered life and so that was somebody you knew intimately teacher what about looking into like politics and saying L. politicians there. There were no real role models for me I saw no one. No I did not see myself in the people running for public office or holding public office. There was certainly no elegantly lgbtq people of color at the congressional level that I know of and and so I felt largely unrepresented and you know my my story begins with the poverty in the Bronx spent almost my life poverty raised by a single mother way to raise three children on minimum wage. which in the nineteen nineties was four dollars and twenty five cents an hour and I grew up in public housing in conditions of bold and mildew leaks lead without reliable. He didn't have water in the winter in my life something of a metaphor grubbing a public housing development right across the street from trump golf course. So as I saw the conditions in my own home, get worse every day the government had invested more than one hundred million dollars to construct the golf in honor of Donald Trump and I remember wondering to myself at the time. What is it say that our society is willing to invest more in a gated Gilded Golf Course Donald From Then in the homes of black and brown low income Americans, and so that experience has been quality is what inspired me to become housing organizer. And then eventually took the leap of faith and ran for public office was twenty four openly gay at no ties to the political machine no ties to the dynasties of Bronx politics but I wish young and energetic with the fighting spirit. And I knocked on thousands of doors went into people's homes. I heard their stories, it was one voter who said to me in the forty years I've been living in the Bronx. I've never had a candidate for public office knocked on my door. was those kinds of interactions at led me to win my first race in two thousand thirteen I became the first openly Q. elected official from the Bronx at several years before then I was at the lowest point I had dropped out of college. I was abusing substances struggling with depression or struggling with sexual identity crisis. I had lost my best friend to inaugurate overdose. They were moments when I even thought of taking my own life I felt as the world around me had collapsed. And then seven years. Later, I became the youngest elected official in the largest city in America, and now I'm about to become a United States congressman. For. The only home I've ever known the Bronx and so I often tell people, my story is the story of the rocks. It's a story of struggle, but also one of overcoming.
Mirati to Rival Amgen in Solid Tumors
"So to start I wanNA talk about exact sciences ticker symbol e x a s, and they are now trading at around twelve billion dollar market cap, and what they announced is liquid biopsy testing data in six different cancer types showing a sensitivity of eighty six percent and a specificity of ninety five percent, and they did kind of a grab bag of cancer types. We have lung ovarian, liver pancreatic, and Alpha Jill. And so I did video on exact sciences quite a while ago I thought their evaluation was a little bit toppy back then and was waiting for dipped to buy, and that's what I did during the Cova crisis I took a small position and then I sold just recently at around ninety four and I think is trading just over one hundred dollars right now but this. Is Nice to see them kind of moving into new areas because I think one of the things that they're struggling with is leaning on their old testing kit the colours guard while all these other companies are trying to get into things like liquid biopsy, which it's going to be a real game changer in the space. Once these treatments get validated and approved by the FDA. Now. They're not alone doing this exact sciences is kind of just finally getting into this because other big players like alumina through grail they just acquired this private company called grail officially officially. We've garden health personalisation of been floating around and invitations. Well, who just acquired archer DSL there's a lot of companies in the space, but exact scientists has shown some pretty good success in their previous testing kits. So it just makes sense them to jump into this new area and be a good competitor. So I think right now probably a little bit toppy with the price around one hundred but I'm pretty pleased with the small profit. I made given the number shares that I have. So that's exact sciences. Want to move now into regeneration ticker symbol. And they're trading at a sixty billion dollar market CAP. I did a video on them also a few months ago, looking at kind of their staples in terms of the different products that they offer and I concluded that they were relatively over-valued back. Then I think now also a little bit overvalued, but it does depend on how well their product. So and the kind of revenue they can bring in obviously but the news that we heard is that they released data on their antibody cocktail for covid nineteen. and. What we saw is that it reduced viral loads and symptoms versus placebo in non. Patients who are infected with SARS co to and what they shared our results from initial cohort of two hundred and seventy five patients, and they also have nine hundred or more patients enrolled. So this is kind of a preliminary analysis that they're showing US and they've called it a phase one, two, three trials. So they're doing the PK the safety along with the efficacy and other sorts of secondary outcomes all at once and when I look through their stuff, they started off by kind of categorizing patients based. On Sarah Negative or zero positive and I, think it's important that they do this because we're looking at a treatment for covid nineteen and if people are already sero-positive in their bodies, already mounted an antibody response in order to bring down viral loads. So what regeneration is trying to pose here is that the negative patients which means they have not mount that antibody response have significantly higher viral load and they make a better target for most treatments probably also their antibody cocktail that they're gonNA share data with. So. Then the data that they show here shows a range of efficacy based off of viral load. So we have tended the power of four copies, parallel all the way to tend to the seven copies personnel. So quite a big range in viral load here and I just blew this up on the screen. What we're seeing is that at the higher viral load, the treatment and there two different doses here in the green and the red line, we see that much more dramatic decrease in the amount of viral load in. These patients and it does kind of make sense because if your body's already mounted an antibody response, the window of efficacy is just going to be a bit smaller than if it's before the at which your body's manning response. So I think for these patients, it's definitely positive data. They also looked at other other metrics as well and I'm not going to get into everything but they did look at a day to alleviation of symptoms and they looked at the overall population of patients. It's the difference of nine with Placebo. To between six and eight, depending on the dose that they gave the antibody cocktail with the negative group alone, the placebo was thirteen days and then the low and high dose was six and eight respectively. So obviously a big difference when it comes to whether or not the patient is zero negative or positive. So that's probably going to inform the FDA when it comes to approving the drug or giving some kind of guidance on which patients should take the drug and who are likely to see more positive outcomes from that. So overall. I think it's good. It gets a step ahead of the Gilead data where I don't think we've even seen a placebo group yet. So it's nice to see regenerate actually do this placebo controlled trial. We can see whether or not there is efficacy and I, look forward to seeing the rest of the data I'm not if this merits taking a position regenerate here given that they're such a large company already and they have so many different assets that are I would say more likely to contribute to their bottom line. This doesn't entice me to take a position, but it's nice to see that we're getting all these therapies are starting to see vaccine data, and this just makes me feel better in general that we're going to move towards being able to treat this disease and hopefully get out from under this and then Kinda recover with the economy. With that, let's talk about the main story for today, and that is morality Therapeutics Ticker Symbol M rt ex, and they're trading at a price of one sixty, two point zero five per share giving them a market cap of seven point two, billion dollars. Their Q. Two, twenty, twenty, net loss was eighty, three, million dollars, and this represents an eighty percent increase year over year there their q two net current cash is six, hundred million dollars giving them a runway of about until twenty twenty two I would say but let's also be careful that if they see positive data. This year or next year is a good chance that they're going to raise again. And what Morad is trying to do is develop targeted cancer treatments and they're specifically looking at solid tumors and even more specific than that are K. Rasa inhibitors, and so they have to compounds Marta six, eight, four, nine, and x, one, three, three. They're also looking at checkpoint inhibitor resistance with their compound sicher Vance it, and I'll talk about that in a bit later. To start though we gotta talk about chaos and the reason why this is so important is that chaos mutations are present in a large population of cancer patients. The first thing it's important to note is that chaos is pretty ubiquitous. It's a critical part of the map kinase signaling pathway, and this is very important in basically every single cell. This pathways involved in Cell Proliferation Cell Survival had differentiation here. There's a whole bunch of other stuff and it makes a little bit confusing because it is involved in. So many different pathways that if you were just to inhibit this molecule non specifically, you're likely to see significant side effects with patients. It's for this reason that it's important that we can come up with a targeted therapy that will only target cells that have a mutation in chaos rather than the healthy normal. KS. To talk a little bit more about its function, it works as a GT as and what this means is that it takes a molecule GDP converts it to GDP using that phosphate group to continue the signaling pathway. The next step is Raff or something like that mutations in. A company twenty, one point, six percent of all human cancers, and then I have here that chaos the predominant or exclusive Rask's mutated in three of the top four neoplasms that account for cancer deaths in the US lung colon and pancreatic. Cancer.
Pandemic Economy is Making Revenues a Lot Better for Better.com
"Linked in just named better dot com number one on its list of top fifty startups, which means they're hiring like mad. The company is the sleeper success of the mortgage world. Undoubtedly, you've heard of its huge rival quicken loans, the largest mortgage lender in the US, but despite the eight billion dollars in loans, better dot com issued. Since March, you may not be familiar with the four year old company founder and CEO this. Shaw Garg tells a classic origin story in two, thousand, thirteen he and his wife were shopping for an apartment in New York City finding the right place at the right price was hard enough. Then they applied for a mortgage it was so much harder than it should be like horrendously bad guard told linked in writer Devon boundary. Their mortgage processor was so slow that they lost the apartment and get this. They weren't exactly slouches when it came to understanding Finance Guard was professionally managing billions of dollars in mortgage backed securities in his wife was a banker as battery reported guard thought if it's so bad for us, we'll how bad is it for everybody else? That's when he decided to start his own mortgage company one that would do things better. BETTER DOT COM launched publicly in two thousand sixteen like quicken loans better is an online firm that allows customers to apply for a mortgage and complete the entire process without speaking to a human being. Choose for the most part algorithms decide whether you get that loan or not, and what it will cost better. Dot Com sells the loans to institutional lenders a common mortgage industry practice. The big piece that guard changed industry-wide loan officers operate on a commission not. So at better, the company says its model freeze it up to match the right loan with a customer rather than incentivizing staffers to sell you the most expensive they can in addition customers say that commission fees as well as some other fees that guard wrung out of the process once launched better dot com did fairly well given the scads of competition out there, but it's the pandemic economy that. Shot better to prominence not to mention made it profitable as we've reported here before refinancings hit record highs after the federal. Reserve, dropped its interest rate to zero in March in an effort to save the sputtering economy additionally social distancing made online mortgages far more appealing to customers who previously may have walked into a bank or at least met with mortgage broker over coffee. The bottom line revenues were about one hundred, million dollars. Last year this year better expects to take in eight hundred million dollars in revenues. A newsletter called the information reported. The information also reported that better is trying to raise another one hundred million dollars in advance of a possible IPO. If it succeeds, the company will be valued at about four billion dollars. That's an insane amount of money for someone who used his apartment down payment to fund his business launch. That's right and his wife never bought that New York apartment. We're betting that they're glad they didn't, but and there's always a but right as high flying is this startup is it's a mosquito on the back of quicken loans and rocket mortgage both owned by the rocket companies together those two companies earned almost six and a half billion dollars in revenue just in the first half of this year both are household names unlike their smaller rival rocket companies went public in August in what the information says was the second largest IPO of the year, it rocketed to almost two billion dollars. With the economy faltering again though rocket share prices down ten dollars from its high of thirty dollars at the end of last month questions abound about how long the housing boom will last.
Trump's Taxes Show He's a National Security Threat
"On Sunday The New York Times published he blockbuster scoop detailing decades of trump's tax returns. You guys probably have some of the big headlines like the fact that he paid no income taxes at all in ten fifteen years examined that must be incredible. He only paid seven hundred fifty bucks in federal income taxes in two thousand, fifteen minute trump might face a one, hundred million dollars tax penalty depending on the results. Of An audit that is brutal but there are also some troubling foreign policy elements that we're GONNA cover today. So a couple specifics in trump's first two years as president he made seventy three million dollars from foreign sources that includes a million bucks from deals in Turkey three, million from the Philippines two point three, million from India those numbers are way bigger. When you look at decades of returns, he's got tons more money out of those places. He also paid more taxes of Robin did at home. So twenty seventeen, right the seven, hundred, fifty, year trump paid one, hundred, forty, five, thousand in India over one hundred, fifty, six, thousand taxes in the Philippines. So that feels a little bit un-american. So a couple of things you guys need to listeners accepting these foreign payments is illegal to violation of the emoluments. Clause feels like a more innocent time when we used to talk about that, it's also not the only way that these foreign countries can steer money into his pocket there've been countless stories of a government's and rooms at trump. In an effort to buy them off. But what's also now clear is that the he is just under a mountain of debt we don't really know who trump os four, hundred, twenty, some odd million dollars to. But we also know that he desperately needs any revenue he can get to stay afloat. So then as many people have pointed out a massive debt, like this will prevent you or me from getting a security clearance and having access to classified information in some ways you could argue that. This disclosure by the Times makes it even easier for these countries to find ways to bribe trump but I think they probably knew Venal to begin with. So ben anything jump out of you in this reporting especially in terms of potential for foreign influence the his financial challenges. Yeah. I mean I think there are two basic things that need to be really driven home here and they may be obvious people that it's worth really putting point on them. I who does he owe this money to and and does that give them leverage over him right and so presumably owns if he does tens or hundreds of millions of dollars to some foreign interest well, then the press, the United States is. Terribly compromise in terms of standing up to that interests let's say the Russian interests let's say it's a Turkish interest or whatever it may be. That's the problem and that's why the rest of us when we go to these jobs have to disclose all of those kinds of conflicts and that's why if we disclose too much leverage from a foreign source, we wouldn't get a security
The beauty hall for 2020 is here
"All right. So normally, we always start out with skincare. We know that you guys are huge skin care junkies, but there's so much news make up that. Honestly we have to give it some love straight off the top, and we're going to start with none other than rare beauty, the new line by Selena. Gomez. Okay. So I did not get my package a curly, and so I'm very excited to hear what you thought of the line and what you think the winners are and just definitely part of this bigger trend we're seeing right of so many celebrities launching makeup lines right now. Yeah it's. True I feel like they used to be kind of like on the poster to represent like a new lipstick or something in these big campaigns, and now it's as though they've stepped out of the frame and they're really owning their own lines it really you know with Selena Gomez I know that health is a topic that's really close to her heart. So we know that one percent of the proceeds from this whole line is going toward increasing access to mental health services. So I, think just having like so much more integrity behind his lines as what makes them not just a flash in the pan. Committed to one hundred, million dollars over the next ten years. So that's a pretty big deal that's super exciting, and of course, we know that Sephora, is behind this line as well. It's exclusive to Sephora so although it's not one of the Kendo brands. So to speak I, feel like you know Sephora they get all that Intel from their customers they know what they want and they really brought a lot of I would say like. Thoughtfulness, to these formulations, I think that's where a rare beauty really wins. Okay. So let's hear about it because I know a lot of people were kind of comparing it to fantasy like one what's been your experience so far? What's what have you been? Loving. So my favorite product from the lot is the rare beauty liquid touch weightless foundation, and so that's the one everyone's going to compare it Fendi. It has forty eight shades except this one is only twenty nine dollars, which is cheaper than the fence is thirty eight dollars Canadian, and of course, it launched just at the beginning of September I really love it. So first of. All just tell you like what it is. It's meant to be a lightweight valuation that goes on Super. Naturally but it has quite a bit of pigment to it. So it will give you a medium to full coverage finish and I think we're all familiar with the bottle. We've probably seen it on instagram. It's as beautiful like it's got the sculptural shape to it. So it then bottle and then it has like this white ball on the top definitely GonNa look good on your shelf e and when you open it, what's really unique is its got this gigantic doe foot applicator like it almost reminds me of the applicators of those. Big Conceal that were coming ask chair. Yeah. Yeah and it's meant to be like a Serum Foundation. So you actually shake it and you can hear that click, click click inside and I'll be honest I've tried serum foundations in the past and I don't typically like them usually they come with a dropper and although there really lightweight there's like a slickness and an oiliness to it that I just do not like I I feel like that was like a a flash in the pan kind of a gimmick that I don't think those are going to last but this one goes on and it feels more just like a very lightweight almost. Watery Foundation without having any oiliness to it, but it is quite pigmented. So what you're going to do is you're gonNA put dots on your face like in the main areas where you won't coverage for me that would all over my tease own and then I, just used my beauty blender and blended in as usual and I really found it had a very natural second skin effect. So it's not particularly Matt it's not particularly Dewey it just looks Berry Notch, draw it kind of reminded me of the Bite Beauty Foundation that I really fell in love with lots year that all clocks right because it likes under Sephora I'm sure they definitely Yeah, armed each other. Well, I mean Sephora. So as an example, Nour's launched a soft Matte Foundation this fall as well, and the publicis actually told me that that was in collaboration with Sephora and that they were using all of the feedback from their customers to tell them what they wanted So that was a very different foundation. It's quite matt more like the Charlotte Tilbury airbrush break by yes. A We know that they're kind of feeding into that and that just makes sense I mean Celinas. Not a makeup artist. Maybe, she has van Gogh helping our, but obviously, they're going to be using the power of their knowledge to create these formulas. So I love this foundation I think it's so natural. This is like a new favorite for me but I think it's really representative of the line like what I noticed just having tried quite a few products is that it's like taking existing ideas like for example, the lip souffle Matt lip cream we all know a liquid matlab color, but this one just went on, it gives you a soft finish. And it's so comfortable. But what I liked is it wasn't thick. So they managed to get that pigment without having that thickness like I can never get a clean line with a Matt liquid color. I always have to use my finger to blended then and then you don't get that that nice shape to it. So this when you do so everything was like, yes already out there but this is so thoughtful and it's just slightly better
Takeaways from the NYT report on Trump's tax returns
"Never give a tax return when being audited. They're extremely complex people wouldn't understand him now the house goes and such defending they WANNA know every deal. I've ever done since declaring his candidacy for President Donald? Trump. Has refused to share his tax returns and gone to court to stop them being released. On Sunday The New York Times published an investigation into more than twenty years worth of Mr Trump's taxes, but not the documents behind them to protect its sources. The New York Times an explosive report despite receiving over four hundred, million dollars through two thousand eighteen report showed he paid paltry amounts of federal tax in recent years. The report claims that Mr Trump paid remarkably little tax since the turn of the Millennium. It suggests that many of the president's businesses are chronically loss-making. and it puts numbers to just how deeply personally indebted the president is. The revelations prompted a familiar retorted. News it's totally fake news made up fake. We went through the same store as you could ask me the same questions for years ago had a litigated this and talk about it. They are the same questions questions that arose in the presidential debates between Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton almost exactly for years ago maybe he doesn't want the American people. All of you watching tonight to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes because trump's rebuttal at the time that makes me smart smart. Tonight another set of presidential debates this time between Mr Trump and Joe Biden. It seems certain that once again, Mr Trump's accounting practices will figure into the discussion. The big headline takeaways on that he paid. No federal income tax whatsoever intended the fifteen years through two, thousand seventeen and in twenty sixteen seventeen the year that he ran for the presidency his first year old in the presidency he paid any seven hundred fifty dollars in federal Income Tax James. Ashville economists, Washington bureau chief. His company's myriad companies were making truly enormous losses over these years. Presidents companies have been losing hundreds of millions of dollars. He's heavily indebted at the same time, and the the record also show us that hundreds of millions of debt. In fact, around four hundred millions of data he's personally on the hook for his liable to fall due mostly within the next couple of years. So it creates a picture of a heavily heavily indebted loss-making businessman on a truly Gargantuan scale who's been paying little or no federal income tax and has serious debt worries ahead of him as he faces a cash crunch meanwhile. But how can it be? He's paid. So little tax over all of that time. I guess two main ways one is that he appears to be setting a large amount of personal family expenditure against his business revenues. For example, he is setting his family home expenses, his plane expenses, even his apparently also colossal head writing expenses against VAT revenue but by far, the biggest means that he's avoiding paying large amounts of tax walls taking in hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue is by setting those revenues against the enormous losses that he's making overall to give you just some taste of the scale of that loss making it. Seems that the president has lost more than three, hundred, million dollars since the turn of the century on his golf courses alone he's lost more than fifty five, million dollars on his Washington DC hotel, which has become a sort of symbol for trump world of the president's firm hold on the capital, and yet it seems it's losing money hand over fist, and all of that is above board. He may already been some difficulty over the scale of losses that he's claiming to set against his revenues. The long trailed audit that his tax affairs. From the IRS we learn relate to attacks refunded that he received decade or so ago of seventy-three million dollars related, it appears to loss-making casinos in Atlantic city a business that he walked away from though we don't know it appears that there is an least an allegation or suspicion that he may have profited from those casinos even as he walked away from. Them if that is the case, he's not liable that tax refund that tax refund plus subsequent interest would now mean a hundred million dollar bill for the president. From the IRS, are you yourself surprised I mean that the president has been fighting so hard to keep this under wraps I just wonder how much you're surprised by what you see in these files. I don't think we're surprised by any of this. We already knew something of the scale of the president's loss-making. He declared a loss of nearly a billion dollars back in the ninety s sufficient to avoid paying any federal income tax for around a couple of decades that was in the sense is remarkable as anything that we've learned from this latest enormous cache of additional detail. But there are a couple of really significant scoops and then the fact that he could be on the. Hook for so much money from the IRS. If the audit goes against him in the fact that he's personally liable for so many hundreds of millions of dollars of loan that will fall due in the next few years. That also is a very significant detail in for those that worry that the president may be compromised that his indebtedness could lead him to make judgements that the American people might have calls to question for those worries. This is I think sort of additionally inflaming. But I mean the picture that emerges here regardless of the creativity of the accounting is somebody who is not running businesses very well. So. Donald Trump entered politics back in twenty fifteen claiming to things that he would bring his business genius to the Serbs the American people make government work better, and that he would sort of right the wrongs that lofty elite were habitually visiting upon the hardworking vulnerable American people and I think the of broad takeaway from this trove of tax information is either Donald Trump is an absolutely appalling businessman in which case is I claim is hard to support or he's bilking the treasury of millions of dollars of avoided tax that he should be paying in which case his second contention is also rather heart support. And do you think either I if either can be parched or or stood up, we'll have any influence on the election on the debates this week. Let's let's break that down Jason I. Think this is not going to be a sort of major vote moving scandal. We've had equivalent scandals that have that have not moved the president's support up or down much a tool and I. think there's no reason to expect this to do so and yet it's significant significant. Because the president opinion polls consistently tell us is substantially behind Joe Biden in this race with only little more than a month to go before the election. What this does is put yet another hurdle in front of his trying to re come on the news cycle get on the front foot, take the attack to Mr Biden nine. We may see some of that in the first presidential debate tonight where Joe Biden has really been handed the script by the New York Times as it of opening attack on a president who loses so much money in his business of as pays such little taxes and result.
Analyzing The NY Times Trump Tax Return Story (In Depth)
"The president's taxes long concealed records show trump's chronic losses and years of tax avoidance. I'M GONNA go through this story with you in an extremely detailed way I'm going to give you an overview. Tell you what's in the article was not in the article, and then we'll go through it in a an extremely detailed ways that you can get an idea of Some lessons that you can learn and apply to your own life, and I'll talk to you about what's behind the scenes so that you can feel much more competent when discussing this or really any other kind of of article this article in the New York Times is going to read I. Guess I should say, obviously, it's GONNA re differently depending on the political back on that you come. But it's going to be read very differently based upon whether you have any knowledge or familiarity with tax code in general how taxes work in the United States how business works etc or if you don't and. For that reason, it's really fascinating to look at People's responses to this article because the responses dramatically depending on. I guess somebody's exposure to it. So I, let me give you Joshua's summary of the article begin with Lead The New York Times Obtained Donald Trump tax information extending over more than two decades revealing struggling properties vast right offs an audit battle and hundreds of millions in debt coming due in short the New York Times of tained evidently all of trump's tax returns over the last fifteen years or so including returns from the business organizations that he is involved in. They've evidently analyzed those returns and they basically wanted to make a few basic statements number one. There was no evidence of malfeasance uncovered with regard to Russia or other kinds of of basic Allegations that have been been being made the basic arguments that they that they tried to advance in this article or number one that president trump has lost lots and lots of money over the years and I think that's the probably when the authors were riding trying to say, what do we talk about? They were basically trying to say, well, let's prove that. President trump is not a very good businessman because he's lost lots of money that would be number one with regard to potential areas of misdeeds. They talk extensively about a few basic things. Number one is the use of business losses across the organization including a seventy something million dollar tax deduction that had been claimed for and filed for from A. Number of years ago, talking to that number a little in a little bit consulting fees and also deductions whether deductions are are valid or not. Now I think for the anti-trump crowd. Unfortunately, there's no smoking gun in the taxes and this is hard hard to overstate how important this story is in political terms have been many political consultants who for many years been saying well, if we could just get a hold of the tax returns, then we could prove all of these things about president. Trump's crookedness and all the things that he's done wrong and then we'll. We'll be able to make that case as a slam dunk case that does not seem to be the case or at least if that is the case, the New York Times did not choose to profile anything in this initial story as a financial planner story and I said, Yep okay. That makes sense. Yup that makes sense. No surprise there. Yup. That sense that makes sense. That's make sense. Explain all the details of how. How that is but I don't see this is not a bombshell story for a financial planner and so I think that was that's one thing that's worth pointing out most of the techniques and and things discussed here is exactly what I would understand. In fact, much of what I teach radical personal finance. When I teach tax planning, the techniques are just simply a little bit grander in scale than what a lot of people do but there's not really any fundamental difference that I can see from what president trump has. been doing over the years versus what I teach people to do to save on their taxes. So let's begin and I'm going to give you a detailed analysis and I'm doing this just. So you can think about my brain of how I read articles like this I I'm I'm not I don't have a political horse in the race. I'm not trying to make go on where the other, but it is really interesting to read an article like this and think about the challenge of writing it I'm not. I'm not an anti, New York Times Guy I'm not a Pro New York Times guy probably read and and respect newspapers much more than I do many other many other forms of of news and I think that the Arctic the authors of this of this story. Russ boot Suzanne Craig Mike MacIntyre is the story of their lives right where they've been working hard to get it just right and you see that carefulness in the writing, but we'll still analyze A. Little bit of the land is a little bit of the details along the way through as well. So we begin with a with the lead. Donald J, trump paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency in his first year in the White House he paid another seven hundred fifty dollars. He had paid no income taxes at all in ten of the previous fifteen years largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. As the president wages reelection campaign that polls say he is in danger of losing his finances are under stress beset by losses and hundreds of millions of dollars in debt are coming do that he has personally guaranteed also hanging over him as a decade-long audit battle with the Internal Revenue Service over the legitimacy of the seventy two point nine, million dollar tax refund that he claimed and received after declaring huge losses, an adverse ruling could cost him more than one hundred, million dollars. Now in that lead, we see these these themes that I've talked about and I just I give you my reactions to what it says here most of this is designed to have a good news hook, which is true, and that's what a new newspaper should do. It's pretty amazing that somebody who is renowned and purported to be a billionaire would only pay seven hundred fifty dollars in income taxes and to the average person. Who doesn't understand taxes that will sound like a shocking reality. A shocking number

But the United States has already appealed that ruling and it may end up going to the supreme. Court. So data extension is far from certain and counting could come to an end as soon as thirtieth.

I love this Martha idea so much because it is so out there. And I I would this is one of those things that would be a legendary moment in comic book movie history. We would still be talking about this and and having huge arguments over it. And I kind of love the idea of like, so, you know, sack Snyder as as a misguided as he can be sometimes this reminds me a little bit of like the old superman fly by concept where it's just like it changes. What we know your character talking about the script that Jj Abrams road that eventually like the big third act reveal was that lex Luther was also from krypton. Yes. Yes. And so, you know, something like that would change what we know so fundamentally about these characters that I would find it really really interesting. You know? Say what you will about it. But the way that Snyder could've used this twist to play with the dynamic between Batman and superman would have been something that we've never seen before. And I, you know in a world where we're seeing a lot of sort of literal adaptations of stuff in like, sometimes we sort of feel like we know what the movie is going to be before it even comes out something like that would have certainly like flipped the table on on what we know about that man and superman, so I kind of wish he would have done that. But yeah, I I guess alas. It was not to be Jacob say what you will about the logic of this idea. But at least it would be a more reasonable moment than them bonding over the fact that their mothers are both named the same name.

"He likes it. When you talk back. Tom sullivan. All right, creative. The most creative tweet in a long time. A tap tweet and says I can see now if things stop working in a Microsoft dome, just go outside and cycle the circuit breakers. An apple homeworks all the time. But you can't have visitors unless apple approves and the home cost twice as much as the Microsoft home. It's very funny. I like your humor tap very much. Mark louisville. We were talking to you in in some brought up Louisville Ken did saying why not while these big companies build out in like FedEx and UPS they went to Memphis and Louisville. So. Why there? Well for them. It was logistics. Right. Oh, yeah. Both Memphis and Louisville gas is the largest employer here. And it's because it's centrally located right? And you know, but for these companies they want to be near talent. And they also want. Everybody should have known that apple is going to locate your Washington DC because that's going to be their biggest client. But you know, if they talent they have to attract talent by having a certain level of school systems there and other things, but the problem is these tech companies are really an abomination when you compare them to. You know, traditional business. If if a Ford was another big employer here, they they have high people they have just like you get they've got people that throw packages and people that fly planes, right? And they're totally different. Right. Yeah. When you look at these tech companies, you're talking sixty seventy percent of the employees are high income earners? Yes. And the infrastructure does not exist to absorb it would be no different than if you inserted an animal species into an environment that you know, that they they consume all of the real estate to the point where the species, they can't exist. I e low income people they're either pushed out or they go state like I said, my parents house it it's all it's all a gentrified neighborhood. When I grew up there. It was all a bunch of poor people sitting around so it, but it's close in. So that is the benefit why they paid more money and more money and more money as as the homes been bought and sold and bought and sold because high price people wanna live close to where they work Bengo up. It went. I don't know what the answer for it is other than like any other species. If you look at it from, you know, each each city has its carrying capacity, just like any environment has a carrying capacity. And I think at some point these tech companies are going to have to spread their workers out because they're going to kill. Cities if they go into because the only option is going to you know, like like you said, what is what is the fast food worker? What is the firemen you can't tax and support all the people that work for industries that are low margin? So how do you see this five hundred million dollar investment by Microsoft where they're going to build? They say they will build affordable housing. They're going to have to make it. So that it's in close to the city. They're going to have to make it. So that only certain people can buy the home, not everybody. Can I don't care how much money you have you? Don't qualify. It's going to be a different qualification. Than what we normally. It's kind of like corporate section eight. And you know, the promise offered a million dollars with nothing. He talked about developing housing. It doesn't go very true. It is the biggest gift in Microsoft's history. Five hundred million dollar pledge part of it is is homelessness. Don't get me started on that. Because I think that the more they give to the homeless more homeless. You will get. But the affordable housing, I do get. I get that. In a big big way. I don't understand what. Well, I mean, I'm I'm living right in the heart of where once upon a time a long long time ago there were middle class people living in Manhattan, and they scattered. They went over and Fred Trump, build a bunch of homes over queens that were affordable in the people flocked to queens. I'd go for the commute. Yeah. Suburbia? Exactly, exactly. I think I think instead of spending five hundred million dollars, Tom, they should they should diversify their workforce and spread them out and others. Court. They're just proportionate salaries. Don't negatively impact those communities from a cost standpoint as much. You would have to spread them way way out way way out because. I have you seen the new apple headquarters building, the big spaceship? In in Silicon Valley massive is this big circular building. But silicon valley's gone it belongs to the techies, and it has for a long long time. Sure. I remember one of the real estate every day. Hey, I can't imagine dealing with that. And and look at those costs. I guess my point is if these companies really wanted to to be good steward of these cities. They wouldn't build these monster campuses. But they wanna have the March because that's what the that's what the high paid engineers one be a monster campus where they. No. Well, look at national. I mean Nashville is exploded. Because a lot of a lot of companies went there because of those lower costs, right? But there's only so many, I know. There's double edged sword where all the politicians and the people who live in those days want high paying jobs, but the problem is if you get too many they destroy. Yeah. Yeah. That that.
