Limits On Toilet Paper And Cleaning Supplies Are Back At Costco
"Go to costco or your local big box. Perhaps you got toilet paper on your list. Maybe some water cleaning supplies as well. But when you go to load up your car you see the signs that say two per customer or whatever. The limit is not as you might think. Thanks to reprise of the apocalyptic stockpiling early on in this thing. It's a supply chain again. But as marketplace's amanda peach reminds us limits on how much consumers can buy can backfire on retailers. Trying to sell it when there was a run on certain products in pandemic early days. The explanation was simple. Basically consumers freaked out. Ken boyer studies operations management at ohio state university and people heard. There's gonna be a shortage so they went to buy more but shortages now are much more about shipping delays and other supply chain constraints boyer says take toilet paper even if it's manufactured in the us the chemicals to make it might come from china or thailand. They're sitting on a boat. Offshore that becomes a delayed the toilet paper manufacturers sometimes. The shortage is in packaging or containers like cans for soda or bottles for water in melbourne. Florida alley strands. Saw a sign at the grocery store. At limiting the number of cases of water customers could purchase to to literally. My first thought was hurting. Strands checked her phone. No hurricane warnings so she thought what's going on with bottled water. She bought two cases and had her son. Do the same. You drink the bottle of water. But he was getting his shopping part for me. Because is there going to be a run on water. And that's why stores have to be careful about signaling. Shortages with product limits on we realize goods are scarce. They become more valuable to us. Care me. Burke is a behavioral economist with the university of southern california. I might not new toy right now. But i know toilet. Paper is scarce. So i may go stock up on it as much as i can at the moment. In burke says that unnecessary purchasing can add pressure to supply chains at exactly the wrong time. I'm amanda pitcher for
Jen Psaki Has No Idea If Joe Biden Has Ever Visited the US-Mexico Border
"Circle back. Pataki seem taken aback by peter. Ducey's question yesterday. I this is. You cannot make this up. Listen to this. Exchange has ever been to the southern border in his life. I will have to get look back in my history books and check the times. He's been to the southern been at morning and we cannot find any record of him. Visiting as president plays for instance senator or even as a concerned citizen. Why would that be. I can check and see when the last time or when he may have been. But tell me more about why you're asking because this is a president makes point when there are disasters in this country like wildfire or hurricane to go and see for himself firsthand what the needs are of the local communities so that he can have informed to make policy me do that why does he go real taxes and see what's going on well first of all peter i think. The situation at the border is the result of broken system and the president certainly relies on his experience so whether it was the work he did to address root causes as vice president his efforts when he was in the senate to support comprehensive immigration reform a steps that at a time or being done and work toward in a bipartisan way. Something that Certainly we think should be the case. Today he uses all of his experiences to inform how he governs. How approaches challenges and certainly he looks again at the last four years and the the separation of children who were ripped from the arms of their parents as a way he does not want to proceed. Gosh if they didn't have that image of parents having their children ripped from their arms. You notice they're never rip from anything other than their arms. They use the same tired talking point over and over and over and how about that. Joe biden has evidently. She said she'd get back to peter. Doocy circle back was gonna circle back. She's never circled back. She's still out in left field looking like oj looking for the real killers. She's on a search to find one time that joe biden has visited the border.
Border Crisis Sparks Calls for Change in Immigration Policy
"June twenty first two thousand nineteen jv pritzker signs measure to help protect illegal immigrants in illinois governor jv pritzker in june of two dozen nineteen signed three bills designed to protect illegal immigrants in illinois that would prohibit law enforcement agencies from coordinating with federal immigration authorities. Pritzker sign the keeping illinois families together. Act which prohibits local law enforcement from coordinating with immigration customs enforcement. Now this was two years ago. Why am i mentioning this. Because you have blue states by the way this is one of thirty examples of blue states that have been signing laws that prohibit police officers and local sheriffs in da's from coordinating with federal officials. That's an act of secession. That's an act of nullification saying we don't want any part of this. Federal compact and we as republicans and conservatives sat idly by like. Oh yeah that's bad. Let's keep going to the courts they've been ignoring the courts and ignoring the laws for years. And so then when one point eight million illegals come into the country to change the country permanently by the way what do we do. We beg joe biden for help. So what are the democrats do when things start to trend in a direction. They don't like they take action. The democrats have the willingness to reshape. Destroy the country. Republicans are getting there now. Some people emailed us and they said well. Charlie couldn't joe biden nationalize the national guard. It is very rare to do so usually only done with the consent of the governor and prayer pet presidents have rarely federalized a state or territory guard without the consent of the governor in the wake of hurricane katrina president. George w bush declined to take control of the louisiana's national guard due to the objection of governor kathleen blanco. But this is such an easy thing. First of all joe biden can't nationalize state troopers. Secondly he can't nationalize texas rangers. Thirdly the governor of texas would say i'm sorry what did you design a piece of paper. There's still our national guard. They're not gonna listen to you federalized nationalize i mean federalize. And so what should have been done. And what's still can be done. Is every single. Texas ranger national guard member state trooper that can be allocated should be deployed to the southern border with handcuffs and arrest authority and charter flights.

How Thirsty Was the FBI for Michael Sussman's False Trump-Russia Claims?
"Just to kind of sum up where we are now. This break in the SPI geh case on Friday was important because it shows Hillary Clinton working with the FBI and a group of attorneys to fake these connections between Trump and Russia. And it shows an FBI more than willing to take the information in and eager and looking for an excuse to get in front of a judge and say it was real and the problem is, they kept flooding the zone. Hillary Clinton, with all of these sources say Trump's colluding with Russia whatever, and they kept telling the FBI they were working with the DNC and Hillary And it created a problem for the FBI because they couldn't tell a judge that So they needed a clean source. They needed a white knight to come in there. Someone clean as the driven snow with a clean C B. Oh, no, no. These people are just in here to tell us about Trump. They have no ulterior motives whatsoever. How do we know that? Because we know On September 19th of 2016 this white knight showed up. According to the allegations, the FBI and the indictment on Friday Michael Sussman, who is a lawyer working with Mrs Clinton, this is why I'm telling you, it's a bigger deal than you think. This guy is connected to everyone. There's no way John Door, um, locked him up for nothing. So he comes into the FBI office. And he says, I have information about Trump colluding with Russia. And according to the allegation, he says, Oh, I'm not working with anybody. I'm not here on behalf of any client. I'm just here giving you potential information about a criminal conspiracy. And the FBI is like yes, finally. Finally The FBI is like this is just great. We gotta sources clean. We can put his information down in a fight application. We can spy on Trump and we won't have to lie and tell a judge, you know, uh, cover up for Hillary Clinton or anything like that. So, it says. In the end I and the FBI's press release that suspects showed up September 19th 2016. Why is this suspicious? Because you learn later on If you watch my show today, the podcast you learn right now on the radio show. If you read the Inspector General Michael Horowitz report who looked at this entire story. There's a really interesting nugget in there again. Hat tip. Our friend full Nelson on social media is all over this stuff. Here it is. Remember, I want you to pay attention to something right here. The date The lawyer walks in. The FBI office is September 1920 16, where he meets with the FBI. And this is their clean source. Finally. They've been hearing all summer about Trump and the Russians and all the sources are dirty. They're telling people that working for Hillary, this is the one guy who said according to the indictment. No, no, I'm not working for anyone. They felt like they had it. How do I know the FBI is in on this? What I think. Let me read to you a piece of this footnote here. From the Horowitz report. The only express direction. We found that Andrew McCabe, who was the deputy director at the time gave regarding the use of a confidential human source concerned. A former confidential human source who contacted an FBI agent FBI Field office in late July. 2016 to report information from a colleague runs an investigative firm hired by two entities, the DNC as well as another individual to explore Donald Trump's long standing ties to Russian entities. So in of this part, one of the footnote, McCabe, the deputy director of the FBI knows that people are piling into FBI offices as early as July of 2016 who are working for Hillary and the DNC. Got it. Okay. Moving on. Good footnote goes on. The former confidential human source also gave the FBI agent a list of individuals and entities who surfaced in the firm's examination of Trump, which the former CHS described as mostly public source material. In mid September. 2016 Andrew McCabe told senior Special Agent one to instruct the FBI agent from the field office not to have any further contact with the former confidential human source and not to accept any information regarding the crossfire. Hurricane investigation Is it that timing Church lady
Michael Sussmann Met With Clinton Campaign Officials Two Days Before FBI Opened Investigation on Trump
"But folks make no mistake. Michael Sussman was not a low level player here. Michael Sussman was a mid to high level lawyer with deep connections in the DNC to Marc Elias to Jake Sullivan, who is the current national security advisor for Joe Biden used to work with the Clinton campaign. Oh, yeah. And with deep ties to Hillary Clinton herself. It's not a small level player. Yeah, I'd like to see Comey prosecuted. I'd like to see uh, the rest of the liars prosecuted as well. But don't brush this off either. Let's go through some of the take aways the indictment and I have to ask the question again. When does when does this guy flip Sussman and start giving up information on what the Clinton campaign knew? And what Hillary knew ourselves? Because when he does this is going to get grab your partner. Grab your popcorn, popcorn eating guy Giffey on social media. You know the Michael Jackson one they have from the thriller video. They see that you see that if you're on social media No, I'm talking about Let's go to take away number one from this indictment because it's these are some gemstones in here number one from the indictment from yesterday, for example, it says on or about July 29 2016. Sussman, the lawyer and another campaign lawyer from the Clinton campaign, met with personnel from the U. S investigative firm and their office. We're assuming that's fusion GPS. Sussman build this time to the Clinton campaign for this. Why is this interesting? And just said Sussman meant subsequent met on July 29th. With fusion, GPS and Clinton campaign lawyers July 29 2016. Why is that interesting? What about that date is interesting. Oh, yes. That's just two days before the FBI opens up the investigation at the Donald Trump called Crossfire Hurricane, which is open July 31st 2016. Just the just the big quickie dig,
Biden Plans to Confront Bad Weather by Spending a Lot of Money
"Your something else my plan. Does it confronts the crisis of extreme weather events there were seen all around us in around the world but just here in america we see everywhere. We know it's real infrastructure. If you just spend the money the bad weather goes away. They're gonna. We're going to confront bad weather. No more storms no more hurricanes no more tornadoes. If not gonna get too hot is. I'm going to give you a musical theater. Reference being the musical theater geek. That i am camelot. A law was made a distant moon ago here. july and august cannot be too hot. It's camelot camelot. Gonna get too hot not gonna get too cold. Only these three point five trillion dollars. Don't you know and you know who's gonna pay for it. Well any of us who have been blessed with financial success. Listen if you're struggling. And i hate that if you're making one thousand nine thousand dollars a year waiting tables. Don't worry you're not going to have to pay for the infrastructure plan but if you make four hundred thousand dollars a year or more you're screwed.

"Meaning. How strong they become. Hurricane is a technically something we call a tropical cyclone. Frank marks has been a research meteorologist for forty two years. At noah the national oceanic and atmospheric administration he directs the hurricane research division for noah's atlantic oceanographic and meteorological laboratory the kind of form over oceans in the pacific and atlantic and the indian ocean typically in the summer art of the year for that hemisphere when the oceans are the warmest day are relatively rare typically on the globe any year. There's between ninety and one hundred tropical. Cyclones that varies very little. It hasn't changed much over the time i've been studying. In mark says that though north atlantic hurricanes are causing more damage than in the past. That's not necessarily because they're more intense. You know we've had very intense tropical. Cyclones almost back to our wreckage. Go back to the eighteen fifties. And so there's been immense storms doing a lot of damage. The problem is that population has shifted and so our risk of damage has gone up tremendously. Plus there's been a demographic population shift towards the coastlines. The warmer climates as we develop things like air conditioning and got rid of malaria. You know people have migrated towards the tropics so even though there is no noticeable change in the actual storms. If there is it's very slight. I haven't seen it in forty years. We have made a dramatic change in the way we live which has made us extremely vulnerable. You know the lifestyle we have the amount of property we put it into the storms potential pats. The areas of the most growth in the united states has been in hurricane. Marriage is universal agreement because the date is absolutely uncontroversial that there's huge increases in hurricane damage. All around the world here again is kerry emanuel. But there's also universal agreement that most were maybe all of that signal is demographic it's not meteorological climatological. It's just that the the world's population expos to hurricanes has tripled since nineteen seventy. That's not just in the us. It's all around the world so you have more people living in places with hurricanes. You're going to get more damage. But what about the idea that climate change is making a storms more intense and dangerous is such a change actually showing up in our observations of real storms over the last few decades carry manual thinks. This kind of change could be hard to see. Because compared to models real world data are noisy the theoretical prediction of increase. Intensity is such that we would only expect the signal to emerge from the noise about now wouldn't have emerged twenty years ago for example the fact that we haven't unequivocally seen a signal compared to the noise is no reason to disregard the risks. That were a long ago predicted and rely on very very solid physics. Most of our observations come from the north atlantic but that only accounts for about twelve percent of the world's hurricanes it's not like scientists decided by vote but there are some things that we feel. We know very well like hurricanes ought to produce more ring and other kinds of storms as the temperature increases. It's just such simple physics. It's very hard to argue against it. There is a tendency among some people dealing with this problem to treat. Climate change is a problem of signal detection and attribution would. It isn't the whole story by any means. I'd like to say that if we had ten years of climate records which would be horrible we would still be fairly confident about stating that we are putting ourselves at rick's of worse damage from hurricanes just based on simple theory and models but despite all the noise some studies are seeing a clear signal like one published last year based on satellite data from nineteen seventy nine to two thousand seventeen. It's very tricky. Because satellites have improved over time as part of this study atmospheric research scientists james p. khasan along with other researchers actually degraded the quality of the modern satellites to match that of the older satellites. And when he looked at that what he found specifically was that the proportion of hurricanes that reach high category i- saffir-simpson category three four five has been increasing over time in a statistically significant way. The skill that's generally used to characterize hurricane strength was developed in the nineteen seventies by engineer. Herbert saffir in meteorologist robert simpson henson's name the saffir-simpson scale and it is exclusively based on the maximum sustained wind speed and hurricane. Daniel swain is a climate scientist with the institute of the environment and sustainability at ucla. So you get a category one. Two three four or five storm based only on what the maximum sustained wind in that particular storm is but a hurricane strength is more than its wind speed so the current scale says swain isn't perfect okay. Back to carry manual and that study showing that the proportion of hurricanes reaching high category number on the saffir-simpson scale is increasing. And i think that's an important results the first time we've seen that signal we didn't really expect to see it until about now in this very noisy and in somewhat deficient data but again it was it is coupled with a strong theoretical prediction. That that is what we should see and so when you take them together. It's a pretty strong case that we have a pretty high risk of more intense hurricanes so the physics is pretty clear. According to everything we know about how the atmosphere and the oceans work as the planet's temperature rises hurricanes are supposed to get more intense but when it comes to knowing exactly how much that's already happening. The current data are messier are telling a less obvious story. What we do know is hurricanes are causing more damage to us we. Humans interacting with these disasters are what caused the suffering. Catherine heyhoe again. So if a hurricane never hit land would it be disaster. If we didn't live along the coastline would a hurricane be a disaster. No we'd be like oh a hurricane hit hundred miles over there but we live over here putting ourselves in harm's way is what causes the suffering and often for many people. They don't have a choice. it's not like they can choose where they live. And whether it's in houston or miami or new york or whether it's in mumbai or madagascar it's always the people who already have the short end of the stick who are suffering the most from these impacts and these vulnerabilities says heyhoe will intensify with climate. Change we've had hurricanes on this planet before we had humans so it isn't that climate change is creating hurricanes. It's taking something that already exists and making it a lot worse. Climate change is what the us military now calls a threat multiplier. It takes every other.

"This week began with tropical storm. Nicholas reaching category one hurricane force right before making landfall along the texas gulf coast and last week hurricane larry reached category three and then weakened but not before causing power outages as a category one in newfoundland canada. The atlantic hurricane season runs from june first through november thirtieth and. This has already been record-setting hurricane henry alone produced the rainiest our on record in new york city a record that was broken again less than two weeks later by hurricane ida here just a few of the recent headlines hide i made landfall off the coast of louisiana packing winds of up to one hundred and fifty miles per hour extremely dangerous cat. Four storm unleashing damaging winds torrential rains and of life threatening storm surge. The remnants of hurricane ida delivering a historic soaking in the northeast. Potential wrath is bringing up the issue of climate change and its effect on hurricane. So here's what. I'm wondering about hurricanes getting more frequent stronger more destructive and his any of this connected to climate change his nova now where we look for the answers behind a stormy headlines. I'm a look patel. All right sorry i guess we lost communications. We are looking at imminent landfall. Abyss store if you're watching the news on august twenty ninth. You might have seen al roker getting soaked by hurricane ida as barreled through new orleans one hundred fifty miles per hour are are like are right now forecast storm surges upwards of fifty to sixty feet twenty eight inches of rain or bore with this system. Ida is the latest storm to at the us as a category four hurricane but even after it was downgraded to a tropical storm. It wasn't finished what people didn't expect. Was that as it kept on going. It stayed strong enough and it swept up enough water vapor to dump record amounts of rain in the new york area and some places. The highest one hour rainfall total ever recorded. Catherine heyhoe is an atmospheric scientist and the chief scientist for the nature conservancy. She's also the author of saving us a climate scientists case for hope and healing in a divided world in the states. Dozens died in. Ida's wake it goes without saying that hurricanes are some of the most powerful natural phenomena on our planet floods and rip currents can result from a hurricane strong winds heavy rainfall in storm surge which is went coastal waters rice abnormally high levels. Heyhoe is convinced that the data shows that hurricanes are getting stronger and that it's because of climate change. Here's the thinking. Climate scientists estimate that ninety three percent of the excess heat trapped in the atmosphere by greenhouse gases finds its way into the ocean and warm water is hurricane fuel. What we're seeing is when they formed because there's so much more energy available to them. More of them are stronger. They're slower so they move slower and they don't more rain on us and it's very simple reason that as you warm the air its capacity to hold water vapor goes up goes quite fast seven percent for one degrees celsius increase in air. Temperature kerry emanuel is a professor of atmospheric science at the massachusetts institute of technology. Then this means that extreme rainstorms not just hurricanes but any kind of strong thunderstorm or or other kinds of storms. That rain will generally rain more so as they storms move along. There's more water vapor for them to speak up and dump on us for example with hurricane harvey that hit the city of houston back in august. Two thousand seventeen. We know that it had about forty percent more rain than it would have. If the same hurricane had happened one hundred years ago also. The warmer ocean water evaporates quicker and that makes more water vapor. So there's this whole feedback effect going on where the warmer gets the stronger and more damaging the hurricanes get and then there's also the fact that warmer water takes up more space so sea levels rising for two reasons reason number one is because land-based ice in greenland and antarctica. Smelting and that water is going into the ocean. But the second reason is simply because as the ocean gets warmer and actually literally takes up more space so when a hurricane comes along a lot of the damages due to hurricanes along the coast because of storm surges well as sea level rises. Those searches can reach further and further inland flooding. More and more areas. That wouldn't ordinarily be flooded. And as we destroy our coastal wetlands and as we build more and more valuable infrastructure rate along the coast. We're putting ourselves even more at risk. It's a lose lose loose. You may think hey hurricanes mainly affect coastal areas but that's not as true as it once was when hurricanes move over land you know they. We can pretty quickly right. You're unplugging them from the ocean so they're not plugged into their energy source anymore but because there's warmer air and more water vapor in the air and because they're getting stronger to begin with. We're also seeing that. Hurricanes are lasting longer at higher intensities over land than they used to and catherine heyhoe says hurricanes and tropical storms are moving farther north before they dissipate. And that's because warmer water is spreading further po word so they can maintain the hurricane status further northward than they used to so. It isn't like hurricanes have never made it to candidate before. Well now though hurricanes are moving up the coast in along halifax neva newfoundland. They're getting storms. That are still at hurricane strength because the warm ocean water is warm enough to keep them going further. North warmer conditions also can cause wind speeds to go up as you add greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. You increase the upper limit of wind. Speed that you can have thermo dynamically in a hurricane now. A very tiny percentage of actual storms reach this speed limit. But a few do and it's very important to recognize that that goes up so that in the future we expect to see and we're beginning to see records. being broken on wind speed in hurricanes. Climate scientists can model or atmosphere and oceans over vast scales. Dial different factors upper down on the computer model and a bunch of consequences fallout and they see all of this as temperatures get warmer. The models don't necessarily show hurricanes getting more frequent at least not in the north atlantic but they predict that hurricanes get stronger and more intense and extreme storms generally dumped more rain but how accurate are these climate models does nature actually behaved the way computers predict what do the observations on the ground. Tell us that after the break. Okay let's take a look at what these look like on the ground. When we think about hurricanes there are few important features to consider their frequency. How many of them. We see in a season there track so their location and.

Those hurricanes have affected more than five million people with the new york times reported earlier this month and at least one point five million of them are children so now we have this new class of refugees climate refugees and i don't really think that it's in the american consciousness because obviously there's a lot of focus on corona virus and everything that's going on and my first because we're gonna have two guests but my first guest is from the bronx we have fennell. Hey tsia welcome to latino roles radio you want to introduce yourself and to say what you do and why. This story matters to you so much absolutely. Yeah thank you so much for having me.

It's a very rich community in the bronx. And what got you involved in paying attention to this. What's going on in central america because me is a puerto rican you know. I feel like we have like the hurricane stamp ever since maria and right and it felt like everyone was talking about puerto rico and then almost kind of like why is nobody talking about central america in honduras and guatemalan and salvadoran. That just happened about a month ago. So what exactly are you doing specifically and share some of that. Because i think it's important absolutely so you know there. There's a lot of stuff happening here in the us right like we were right up against the election when all of this stuff was breaking about the category four storms in the hurricane and everything and so i stand that a lot of folks is attention was really pull towards that. I don't wanna like discount that because that was super important for us but at the same time to your point when all of these other countries were being hit with hurricanes. I feel like so. Many people rallied together. Talk about the puerto rican community like you know fantastic community right there in how everyone came together and obviously non latinos also wanted to like contribute and donate and so i'm sitting here grappling with everything happening with the election and then of course more terrible news coming. You know about honduras in central america with these hurricanes and i was just so upset in so i shut down and became silent and just sort of like what's watching. The media was watching what was happening on social media in house. Like no one is talking about this though. I got really upset right. And i have many <unk>. Influencers in entrepreneurship.

"The the the really big part of that is not only the we've had some very in hintz hurricane seasons as of late and the storms are staying on track a little a bit longer than what they historically have and about two years ago I I did will leave are really starting to get into having more and more and more and more clients traveling on a very regular basis because when we first started when when when I first started with Pixie we may be traveled I don't know eight to ten clients a year but then once our client count we started to take up where where we had clients travelling at least every month that was kind of where I started to do a little bit of research on how much hurricane the impact central Florida and what the seasons are and what I what I found was peak season in the Atlantic Basin for hurricanes is September tenth so you go in like the two to three weeks prior to September knbr ten or the two to three weeks after September tenth what you're most likely going to find is that you're going to have at least East one named storm in the Atlantic Basin at that time whether it's a tropical depression whether it's just something that's kind of loosely forming or whether it's a bona fide hurricane but over the last Hundred Years on September tenth there have been fifty storms within that hundred years that have been active in the Atlantic Basin as a hurricane on September tenth so you really that September tenth week you're looking at a fifty fifty shot as to whether there's going to be a hurricane in the Atlantic basin not saying it's headed toward central Florida but an active hurricane in the Atlantic basin or not so fifty fifty percent shot as you get closer in to that November range you read more of a ten percent shot and if you back up into the very early part of hurricane season is say for instance between July tenth and August first you run less than less than five percent chance so that really ticks up beyond a twenty percent chance beginning August twentieth and ending about October Twentieth So August Twentieth October twentieth you run anywhere between the twenty to fifty percent chance of having an active hurricane in the Atlantic basin so and that's my meteorology report but what you have to realize to with that is that that doesn't necessarily mean that you shouldn't travel during that time absolute Louis it just means you need to be prepared for a possibility of something to happen in all the years that we've been doing this I think I've only really encountered where Disney has closed three times in ten years so that's something that can that are too because in reality it means that the storm doesn't actually hit the Orlando era airport air area so with the fifty percent Mansa doesn't mean it's going to hit Florida it means it could hit somewhere out in the Caribbean it means a lot of.

"About university of kentucky basketball and has grown is going to launch his own candidacy for the democratic nomination for senate in kentucky. He just announced he's putting together a set an exploratory committee. There's been lots of controversy about matt losing his job bob on a couple of state television shows and whether or not amy mcgrath's campaign had anything to do with it which they absolutely deny matt's writing a book about mitch mcconnell. It's drama filled and so here's a fun fact. Beth and i went into college with matt jones. I've known match since i was seventeen years old and he is very smart and he is very driven and i still still believe that amy mcgrath is the right candidate for kentucky. I think that this drama <hes> will do no favors for the kentucky democratic party. Freddie also matt has been in this sort of long narrative about will-he-won't-he run every time. There's a race house race. I think there was talk about it. Last time. Mitch mcconnell was up for re election or maybe ran policy. It's an ongoing thing i get it. I get the appeal but i wish we can move on desperately really trying to speak very carefully. If you can't tell i respect the really media empire that jones has built <hes> and i think they do really get an interesting work listed in the field of like recovering attorneys that we both participate in he's a star he's really are absolutely he took that they took that law degree and transferred it into the career that he always wanted good for him. I think in kentucky we have a history of taking are celebrated celebrated figures who are sports stars or sports adjacent stars and putting them in political office and i would like us to change that it i think if you consider what a united states senator does it is just not close for me in thinking that amy mcgrath is the right handed it and here's what this really pulls out if name sarah you've spoken to this a number of times we all all walk around repeating things like a woman. It can't be president yet. 'cause the country's not ready. Aiming mcgrath can't meet mitch mcconnell but maybe matt jones could and we repeat them as that. We have no agency on process. We've agency in the process. I i think that the more amy mcgrath travels the state of kentucky and she is out there doing it far western kentucky far eastern kentucky northern in kentucky. If you follow her on instagram she is hustling all over the state and really spending time with voters and having really spent time with her in person ourselves. I can tell you that she sits across from you. She looks you in the eye. She listens to you. She disagrees with you to your face in a respectful way. I think i have a lot of difference with amy over the role of the federal government and i also think that i could roll up my sleeves next to her and we could get things done because amy is about not doing what is straight and honest and good and what makes progress she will not let the perfect get in the way of doing better and i think in that way she is so representative of kentucky values statewide and so if i worked for her right now i would just keep matt jones jones name out of my mouth and i would keep doing what i'm doing. I would really follow the joe. Biden model like i'm running against mitch mcconnell the end <hes> mhm and and i would hold onto that what worries me too is just because we have people in california saying i've given her money. We've traveled recently and we had so so many people tell us oh yeah i like already given her money and she is gonna need a law of money to defeat mitch mcconnell. I don't wanna lose use those people you know we've we've captured the nation's attention. She's captured that donor information. They're giving her money. Some people already giving her money monthly and i don't want to be like oh. Will we hold on. We're gonna have a primary..

"An amicus brief means friend of the court so in these cases the united states is not a party. They did not have to say anything here but they chose to say something because the attorney general and the equal employment opportunity commission enforce title seven seven entitled seven applies to the federal government as an employer so that's their interest in coming into these cases and saying high court. Here's our opinion. The the two cases are altitude express versus zarka and bostock versus clayton county georgia in <unk> express an employee says he was fired fired because he was gay and he says that violates title seven the district court in that case the first court that heard it dismissed that claim but on appeal to the second circuit hit the court reversed and said that sexual orientation is a subset of sex discrimination in the second case out of georgia a child welfare services coordinator said that once the county learned he was gay it falsely accused him of mismanaging public money as a pretense for firing him because he's gay i mentioned mentioned those facts because in addition to arguing in this brief that sexual orientation is not part of title seven and the government basically accepts the employers reasons for firing these plaintiffs on their face and it's kind of offensive. I think the way it's worded and the briefs. We'll put a link so that you can read them yourself. If you have that interest but government says sex doesn't mean sexual orientation it didn't win. Title seven was passed it. It hasn't since then that discriminating because of sexual orientation doesn't involve treating members of one sex less favourably than similarly situated members of the other. They say it's not that he's gay. It's that you have to compare how they treat a gay man to how they treat a gay woman and then here's where things get really interesting interesting in the briefs and you can really see where the government is coming from. The court has protected interracial relationships for a very long time mm-hmm and has said that if you're discriminating against people for being an interracial relationship that counts as as racial discrimination and the government has to differentiate that associational discrimination from same sex relationships here and they say here's why those those two things are different because the difference in race. I'm quoting from the government brief here. This is not my statement because a difference in race rarely makes to otherwise similarly situated individuals dissimilar nearly all race-based distinctions constitute unlawful race based discrimination by contrast sex based distinctions are not invariably invidious because they can reflect physiological differences between men and women as the lawfulness of sex-specific bathrooms athems makes clear an employer discriminates against employees in same sex relationships. Thus does not violate title seven as long as it treats men in same sex relationships in the same way as women in same sex relationships and so i feel like that couple of sentences illustrates that what the government wants is for the a court to interpret title seven through a really traditional view of relationships chips gender sex marriage and i think that's important to understand and the final point of the government is that congress has basically ratified ride the understanding that title seven doesn't include sexual orientation because every congress since nineteen seventy five.

Herbs seasonings stock has been on a tear this year up thirty percent, but I still like it at twenty five times forward earnings market leader by far with a twenty percent market share love their recent RB foods acquisition with broadened Franks hot sauce who doesn't love Frank's hot sauce. If you're a buffalo wings fan, paid a dividend for ninety four consecutive years. McCormack ninety four consecutive years St., broader question about McCormick. What is your favorite spice Ron. I make a lot of chilly, so it would be a Kumon. It's not pronounced human is now Jason Moser. What are you looking at? Well, this rarely happens of Ron, and I did not put our heads together on this one, but I too am going with a while. Hey, see, you know, I was a little disappointed in myself. A few weeks back because I realized that I talk about this company all the time yet I owned no shares, but Chris, that has changed. I opened up a position in this company dividend aristocrat. I love how the Rb foods deals working out. Earnings are coming up in a couple of weeks, and you know another side note heroes, making some ribs. The other night, seasoning them up with his dizzy. Pig dizzy does now dizzy. Pig is just based out of Manassas Virginia here I can't help, but wonder just small little owner operated place. I can't, but wonder if maybe McCormack wouldn't be interested in some point because they have one heck of a brand and they make a lot of really good products. Check it out, dizzy pig. I'm in favor of that acquisition as long as the keep the dizzy pay that would be that would be crossing the acquisition right? To really keep that brand and spread it Steve. Do you have a second question according to govern how take the favorite spice questions? Steve? I do have a question. It's not that one is, is there really room for two McCormick recommendations or spices that big of a deal that we care this much to recommend it? Hey, listen, ninety percent of the flavor, ten percent of. Cost, and I'm going to give you a freebie here. Steve. I just found the merits of putting old bay on your popcorn. Give it a shot, maybe a cold beer. You may be later quick follow. Are you Kumon or cumin? I have always said cumin, old habits die hard. I think we're going to get some emails to radio at full dot com. As I say Cuba to for radio, I changed. I watch a lot of diners drive ins and dash and they say human in Kumon. I think both are acceptable like data and data. There you go, Matt, Arkansas, or what are you looking at? Well, like McCormick. I know everyone's sitting at this table or behind this glass has used this company multiple times. Docu sign ticker, DO, see you. I feel earlier this year open for training and thirty eight dollars a share shot up quickly, almost seventy now back to around fifty five. I think this is one of those can't miss brands making easier for individuals and corporations to transact legal agreements, great subscription model, huge market opportunity. Docu sign. Steve question about Dr sign is the Fokker signature really necessary. I mean, clearly a dig dig. Digital signature. I'm not using a pen on my screen. Come on.

But I mean, Microsoft is the company of Dr evil style freaking underwater data centers that operate on salt water.

You need to solve chances are. If you're a developer, you'll go check it hub z. of somebody's posted something up there and Microsoft was able to convince the founders that they should go with them. Instead of with Google. I thought that was an extraordinary thing. And then I looked into it a little bit more. Microsoft happens to be the biggest contributor by far to get hub, they're doing a lot more in development stays yet. You know, some of our listeners might remember a sweaty, Steve bomber dancing around on stage, saying developers, developers, developers, developers, a really is all about developers again at Microsoft, and they're creating a lot of value.

These insurers are protected by other insurance companies known as reinsurers and their rates go up so it all it all sort of plays out his just higher costs of doing business in those costs eventually can be recouped. But then if you look on the other side of the Quin look at the. Those companies, those restaurants, retail operations that will never gain those sales back. I mean, those everyday that they're closed, those are sales are never going to get back. And you know as looking here bojangles and godspeed little Jiang. You've got forty percent of their stores or in North Carolina might my guess is we will see bojangles in particular. That's a good example of a company that is probably going to witness a good ding to their revenue here for at least a quarter. If not more this week. Apple held in van to unveil the latest versions of various gadgets, including its largest and highest priced iphone ever. The iphone ten s max, which starts at eleven hundred dollars and Ron. The new apple watch out, comes with the ability to take an electrocardiogram. That's FDA approved. That's a little scary. You know, when I first read the headline here, I was underwhelmed and I am an unabashed apple enthusiast. I on the stock, the phones, the ipads, the computers, like I'm all in. But this didn't excite me. I was wondering what the impact would be on the stock, but I dug a little deeper and I got a little more comfort here. I actually think the larger excess max, which you know is the most expensive is going to be attractive to a certain subset of folk. Who really love that the phone, getting bigger and bigger and bigger. But I think the bigger opportunities actually the lower priced x. are which is at seven hundred and forty nine dollars, and I expect that will do well, you give up a little little functionality. It's made of aluminum, for example, but it's actually a larger screen than the iphone ten was at a price point of seven hundred and forty nine dollars, and I think that will do well. Yeah, I agree. I think we've seen where there are people out there that will pay that really high price point for a phone. The majority of people though we're not looking to do that. We've seen units unit sales to stagnate a little bit, but I think that seven hundred forty nine dollar price point is pretty encouraging yet. I'm still sitting here on my iphone six and I'm trying to get everything I can out of that and and I did that twenty nine dollar battery replacement. It really extended the life of this phone. So I'm not in the market to upgrade, but I have to imagine when I am ready I would be focused more on that seven hundred forty, nine dollar phone. Not that thousand dollar plus phone. The apple watch and the FDA approved electro cardio. Program. I mean, if your Fitbit and you're watching this, are you just, you know how disconsolate are you if your fit bit? Because it really seems like even if they don't have the upper watch flying off the shelves, they've absolutely raised the bar in terms of what people can and possibly should expect out of that kind of device. Yeah. If your fit bit, you're saying they're coming for us and they're here, and I don't think this particular watches is a game changer, but it's the beginning of apple really a moving forward with with the health functionality of that watch in a pretty big way and probably get better and better and his once once doctors start to kind of rely approve it. I think it'll be even more of a game changer. We've talked plenty of times in the past about Intel, the two hundred billion dollar chipmaker. We rarely talk about its competitor, Advanced Micro Devices and maybe not should change. Mattie, because shares of AMD are up two hundred percent in just. The past five months, what is going on with AMD? I know I couldn't believe that number when you said it, but so get ready for me to talk about things. I know very little. Oh, no. This happens quite often. Actually. You know AMD I think this was for a lot of investors, a crypto currency play, kind of early on, go back six to nine months and Egypt's kind of powered the computers and servers that were doing all this heavy number crunching behind bitcoin,.

"It. Mine. Robe pool, global headquarters. This is motley fool money. It's the motley fool money radio show. I'm Chris Owen joining me in studio senior analyst, Jason Moser, Matt ARGUS singer, and Ron gross. Good see was always gentlemen, they, we've got the latest headlines from Wall Street. We will dip into the full mail bag. And as always we'll give you an inside look at the stocks on our radar. But we begin with mother nature. As we are recording. This hurricane Florence has made landfall in North Carolina, an estimated ten million people are in the storm's path. So first and foremost, hope everyone is going to be okay and is just hunkering down for to ride out this storm Jason. But this is also a story with business implications. It is. Yeah. I mean, my heart goes out, I went through and eighty nine in Charleston, and it was just a nightmare. So it's a tough thing to recover from, but recovery does happen in their companies out there that help that happen. Certainly they can present opportunities for investors. I think the first thing to remember we. Always talk about insurance companies. I think that's the main exposure here. These insurance companies are not taken by surprise when it comes to catastrophic losses like these man, that's the nature of their business in. So they plan for these kinds of things. With that said, it does seem like there have been a lot of natural disasters more recently that are costing these insurers a little bit more than they have been planning for a look at traveler's insurance. For example, the most recent quarter here they reported catastrophic losses, a four hundred eighty eight million versus four hundred million from a year ago, but they did note that they had not planned for this high of a loss, it it sort of out outpaced they are expectations. And so that's something to note. I mean, they said in the call, even that tornado hail, nor'easters, hurricanes, wildfires and mudslides. We haven't seen a string length that in the last decade it makes a difference. And so I think you're gonna see more and more insurance start to plan a little bit more conservatively are going forward because it does seem like there's a trend building and that frequency has. To impact premium prices and if you don't get it right than by the way, it's hard to get it right. Then you start to take hits in your combined ratio your profitability. And that's where can get a little dicey as more of a longer term trend where insurance companies do not have their pricing structures, correct. And then you could see hit the stock and really impact business. You mentioned the the combined ratio. I think that's an important point to note because with travelers, the combined ratio of ninety seven point, nine percent in two thousand seventeen was five point. Nine percent percentage points higher than in two thousand sixteen cloth in ninety two point zero in just for people out there too FRA context. You're you like that number the under one hundred percent. That means you are underwriting profit is occurring if it's over one hundred percent than you're, then you're losing. And we do see sometimes those insurance companies turn in those combined ratios over one hundred percent. I wonder how much of the story here is the fact that over the last fifty years. I mean, it's just been so much development, right? On the coastline. And so you know, marinas resorts condos, people like to live near the beach. Near the ocean. I understand that, but the so the amount of insured property in one, the dangerous parts of the country, which is the coast when if we have we're gonna have more hurricanes. I even read a story over the summer where a lot of these coastal towns have actually spent millions of dollars replacing their beaches, rebuilding the dunes, the sandbars just to hold onto the beach. And so even small hurricanes. And I think Florence, it's a big storm, but I think it hits shores a hurricane a category once yet. Got downgraded to category one. Right. So even that storm which you know you wouldn't think looking back, you know, how much damage could this really cause, but even storm like that then 'cause is probably causing tens of billions of dollars worth of damage given all the development we've seen in past decades..
