C L, A medical center, a level one Trauma center. Here's the phrase Polly come Communist. Did C O m m I I n u t e d have never seen this word Commune. You did open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia and a rod down his leg. Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins. This is trauma to the muscle and soft tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure do this swelling. He is currently awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital. Really all right. Say We'll get well, Tiger man, just Murph. I don't know, but he I hope he recovers. I hope he has a full recovery. And I don't even know like that. It's hard to even think about playing again. I don't know It is hard to think about it. Most people are saying right now is focus on a walking again be being with his family and then down the road golf. But do let me tell you one of the mean and I'm not trying to minimize this thing at all. It was very traumatic and I was very concerned. That something had gone wrong. I was concerned. They said he was so far there's judgment was they was not impaired. Yeah, I believe that. So that's huge. Um, but three idea. I mean, I'm just looking down the road here. Alex Smith came back and played football. So I am not writing tiger off here, man about Brian Young to remember because I was at the stick tonight. He hurt his leg and e. If he's remember the images of that, how like grotesque? It looked. Yeah, and he came back and played and did well, once a pro bowls After that, it was 25 years ago. Surgeries 25 years later, Yeah. So I mean, in the world of golf, there's very famous incident where Ben Hogan, the mystical, magical Ben Hogan, who some people think is that is like Is still even with Nicklaus and Tiger the most mystical figures. Ben Hogan on he was He was T boned by a drunk driver and all in 1949 and unbelievably devastating car wreck. Damn near killed him, and he had a huge years long recovery. He came back in 1953 and 13 frickin majors. It's considered one of the greatest comebacks in sports history. So I mean, it's out there. I mean, listen, Zoe from watching that thing that for me, that was totally, uh, you know, very informative because I didn't know half of that stuff about Tiger until I saw the HBO special. So I'm really glad I did, but more if I was going to say it sounds, it seemed like he had already worked so incredibly hard to come back from the back. Problem He was having right like that was a major achievement. The fact that he went back out there and even just played it all sounds like that was a major accomplishment very true, and that's why you know be. Let's say he doesn't even have this accident. Yesterday, he had a back concern. Like there was a concern about whether or not he was going to play in the Masters. How was he could play going forward, But I always I've learned you never. I always say this. I'm always say he's the greatest winner I've ever seen, is the greatest winner I've ever seen. And that's why I would eat me. Even at this point in time. We're concerned about his health and his recovery, But I actually I would not right. I I would not write him off the way I gotta break the tension here because it's such a it. Is that such a heavy story We want Tiger to get well, But I just gotta tell you more if that's exactly what I was saying to you the week leading up to the Super Bowl. And then you went with my home's. Anyway, I was going. This guy's the greatest winner of all time. This guy's not losing this game because not lose this game works like yeah, like my homes in this one, so little defense out there doing a few things I'm just saying. I said the same thing about Brady. I'm going back to Brady just to break the tension. That's all. That's all I had for the show had to go with my homes further show Polly You know, it's crazy show.

Intel Pops, VMWare Drops (For The Same Reason)
"We're going to start with some surprising news from intel. Ceo bob swan is stepping down. In mid february in june of twenty eighteen he was appointed interim ceo of intel in late january of twenty. Nine thousand nine. The interim tag was removed but suffice to say swan has faced a number of challenges over the ensuing two years and he is on his way out. Moving into the corner. Office is pat gelsinger. Who is currently the ceo of vm. Ware and for anyone wondering what. The investing world thinks of all of these moves. Shares of vm. Ware down six percent this morning and shares of intel up eight percent. Yeah so you've got gelsinger who previously had been at intel As the chief technology officer and of course swan came up and was promoted interim and then permanency. Oh having been the cfo. So i think one of the Takeaways that one can take here is that this is perceived to be a technology issue And the solution comes into Comes from technology Not from financial expertise I don't think there's any accusations that that's one wasn't getting the job done from you. Know the numbers point. It's day are falling behind on the technology and it's time to make a change. Yeah i mean you think about everything. That's happened with them. Over the last couple of years we've talked on this show about. Amd continuing to eat into intel's market share. You know apple though. The longtime partnership that intel apple ended after fifteen years. So i understand why shares of intel would be up on bob swan leaving. That said i d. Do you think there's maybe a little like when you take these two together when you take the let's just call it. Fifteen percent difference between the rise in intel and the drop vm. Where do you think it's a little overstated. And the reason. I ask that is because guessing was. Ceo of vm. Ware for eight. Plus years the stock up about thirty percent over the entire. Let's call it eight and a quarter span of his tenure as ceo. So it's not like vm. Ware shares were setting the world on fire under the tenure of pat gelsinger. Yeah i don't know that The world is looking at vm. Ware and saying how they ever replicate What they've been able to accomplish with with anybody else in that role But it may be a look. He's a commodity value enough that intel which despite going not not going nowhere as a stock for twenty years but going down and then most of the way back up. But that's that's what you're talking about twenty years of long-term buy and hold nothingness if you got in sort of at the top back in two thousand and i think that it's fair. Question to ask. Is whether vm. Ware is losing nearly as much as intel is hopefully gaining here I think that they change is being made at all is going to be. Maybe the lion's share of the stock movement today on intel if i had to just wildly guests Through the markets actions. You've got third point having been pushing for changes From intel intel says. It's got nothing to do with that nothing to do with you. Know the pressure. We've been getting from third point. This is this is all independent of that pressure. I don't think that's the case. And i think that Any change is going to going to explain a bump in intel at this point
The Rise Of Gig Work: Companies Turn To On-Demand CEOS
"Experienced executives of doing gig work do is, some companies are turning to on demand Workers to be CEO Zen Piers Yuki Noguchi explains why Duncan Thomas has served a CEO of a medical practice a Russian software firm and logistics company, each stint lasting a few months. It really suits how I like to work, and it suits how I like to engage people and, you know, it gives me tremendous work life flexibility, Thomas fell into temporary executive work by way of a traumatic experience. Six years ago, he was working long hours as the CEO of a vocational college. I came back from a vacation and I was feeling unwell on Guy went to the doctor that day. And that day, they said, You better go down and get an ultrasound. The doctor returned head hanging advanced melanoma, he told Thomas left him about seven months to live. Nine chambers of my lungs and I have three of my liver, and the biggest ones were nine a half centimeters in size, so it was pretty overwhelming. Thomas was trained as a veterinarian and found a clinical trial. A test drug eliminated the cancer from his body. It was almost like a rebirth. Thomas, a native Australian living in Los Angeles, reevaluated what he wanted out of life and work. Working as an itinerant CEO, he says, leaves him time between gigs to recharge with his family. The pandemic increase the popularity of gig work for CEOs. It's left Cos in turmoil and more leaders are willing to trade in a higher salary for short term stints and greater flexibility. Jody Greenstone. Miller is co CEO of the business talent group. It matches experienced executives with interim CEO jobs. Mello says she started her firm because companies in transition or crisis often need temporary expertise. But they don't want the multiyear commitment of a long term CEO. And the notion that I could just, you know, need somebody for three or four months to come in and solve a problem or help me, you know, build a new business just didn't exist in a formal way. The fact that so many people Are now no longer community to an office, she says, brought in the pool of temporary executives and the companies wanting to hire them. And what that did is it really opened up the world of talent, but succeeding as a gig CEO isn't easy. High end temps are often flown in to handle crises and scandals. Duncan Thomas has seen his share. The challenges can be very real. Thomas has taken over at firms that were cooking their books or the previous CEO sexually assaulted an employee. Writing. Such ships isn't easy. For starters, Thomas says. Workers often this trust leaders who parachuted in they're suspicious of their motives. And no, they won't stick around. Ah, lot of the stigma that I've come across is that you are changed around. You're a mercenary. That you are only into the money that you don't really don't give a damn about people these days. There's the added challenge of managing teams you've on Lee met online. But Peter woke with says there are also some advantages of coming in fresh make really comment as an outsider, independent don't have favorites that often helps also Well quits lives in Chicago. He's currently juggling two separate executive gigs at a robotics company and an e commerce firm. One of the benefits is never getting that rut of being in one company for a long time. So he says, it never gets boring. You can Noguchi NPR news
US banning use of WeChat, TikTok for national security
"All right. I'm sorry I didn't mean to be flip it but here's an example of what you're talking about Shannon. Possibly earlier than I expected the US Commerce Department announced the details of what qualifies for band transactions under the two executive orders affecting we chat and Tiktok I thought we wouldn't get until Sunday, but we got them today both we chat and Tiktok APPS will not be legal to distribute in the United States as of September twentieth. So APP stores will need to remove them just like apple decided to remove fortnight, they'll have to remove tiktok and we chat as we'll google play or. Any other APP store. Now, these executive orders can be rescinded if the Oracle deal is acceptable to the administration, keep an eye out. This isn't the final word but if condition stay as they are now that has to happen as of Sunday additionally on September twentieth taking payments through the we chat APP will be illegal. So stores in the US can't accept we chat that is often done for Chinese tourists to make it easier for them to pay. So that will not be allowed. For we chat in particular on September twentieth the US is forbidding the following any US company hosting any part of the we chat APP, a cdn service providing service to we chat any contracted transit or peering services doesn't mean that they can't transit the service but any agreement that says we'll give you peering as long as you give us peering back right or we'll. We'll give transit service if you pay us this much US companies can't. Do that anymore and any use of we check code in other APPS or services in the US. Lot Of folks think this is a first amendment violation because code is considered speech under a lot of precedents. But the idea here is stop clones to say, well, you can't just go take the we check code, put it in a different APP called something else under a different company. So you can't use the we check code in other services. This one's tricky. A dozen seemed mean we chat has to be actively blocked from the Internet. They're not asking ISP's block the we chat service they're slow down it means cdn's and transit providers can't work with ten cents on the we chat service, which would greatly reduce its reliability and availability possibly to make it almost useless. Those same prohibitions will not apply to tick Tock until November twelfth. So basically Oracle's got until November twelfth to get the deal done or tick tock becomes unusable as well. In summary As of September twentieth you won't be able to down the we chat download. We had dot from APPs stores in the US but if you have them already, you can keep them. They won't get security updates though. And we chat won't work very well but tick tock will still work as normal if you've got it until November twelfth. A couple other notes here, US Magistrate Judge Laura Bieler ruled Friday that she would not issue a preliminary injunction against this we chat order she previously had said she might be willing to because the original executive order issued in. August was a little vague but said, Friday hey. Now we have the details not vegas anymore. So. She says, this complaint is now moot. Further filings from the we at user alliance are expected to argue that it's not moot. We'll see if those come. Also instagram head at a Maseri tweeted that quote a US Tock Band would be quite bad for Instagram facebook and the Internet more broadly and in response Tiktok interim CEO Vanessa Pappas the head of tiktok in Santa Monica. Asked facebook and instagram quote publicly join our challenge and support our litigation in other words like fine. If you believe that we need your help. Of course, the president as of this recording has not yet issued his decision on the proposed deal for Oracle. It's expected at any moment oracle wants to become a trusted tech partner and minority owner in new us-based tech. Company. Owned by Bite Dance. The. Saga continues I imagine we might. Have this all solved by Monday but of course, then it's onto the next thing. How your feeling about this. Well Shannon I don't know about you but I am I was laid to the TIKTOK game but an enthusiastic TIKTOK USER I don't make stuff but I I watch other things and I really liked the APP and I'm not alone it's a very, very popular up and I can't really think of I've thought of I was trying to think of has this ever happened before some some time where there was something that I liked technology wise. That was then you kind of taken from me based on where I live a lot of other countries and regions in the world are very used to this I can't think of one I really can't. I can think of APPs or services that were available somewhere else and then they came to the US. Eventually, we're never did but not something that was sort of taken away. So I just wondered what the Creator Backlash all this is going to be like. There's a big creator backlash I. I'm sure that it's going to happen quite soon to like there's a lot of people that have that are creators on. TIKTOK. That had not diversified and just thinking of it from that Creator side there's a lot of people that are going to lose income just specifically with tiktok but also with we chat because we chat has always been. So internationally friendly where people can use it across borders. So there's a lot of like developers. There's a lot of companies that use we chat for business. So this is not only going to be hurting TIKTOK and we chat but. It's also going to be hurting the people that use it as well for their own businesses and I. Don't know if if this was considered when they decided to put in put this ban in place, and that's very very concerning not just because you know that that freedom of the Internet as I was mentioning earlier with the previous story but also from the whole income aspect of like at all times in in twenty twenty when we have a pandemic and they're going to remove the these applications because they're based in a different country and we're going to be losing the opportunities to conduct business because of that. Keep in mind folks when you're forming your opinion about this and I'm not telling you what opinion to have when I say this that. It is not against the rules for the United States to ban an APP we ban all kinds. Of APPS. There are APPs that we all agree should be gone child pornography fraud. Those kinds of APPS. What's at issue here is the administration is saying these two APPS are just as dangerous to our national security and to more personal data as a fraud APP and therefore yes, it's going to have fallout, but it's because they're dangerous apps like they pretend to give you something good but they're really. Supporting an enemy and we can't allow that seem that. That is the argument that is being made. And we can stay the same argument about a lot of social media platforms. I mean we we have American platforms that do dangerous things, but they are not under the supervision of the Chinese government. So there is a difference. It's a definitive difference and you can decide yes you want to think about it. I'm glad you added that comment that there needs to be a definitive difference. There needs to be proof and evidence. real quickly before we wrap this up yesterday, we reported that the Oracle deals term sheet would create a company called Tick Tock global based in the US with its own board of directors. We got a few more details on that term sheet axios llosa's INA freed has more detail saying the term sheet describes three boards. A board approved by the US government would oversee TIKTOK US and include a security director and an independent data security expert. With national security credentials, which is pretty much the description of a former CIA or NSA officials. So the US government would put a board to oversee the operations of tiktok in the US while Oracle would operate it. A security subcommittee of that board would be composed of US citizens with veto power over Tick Tock Global Security data privacy decisions in the US, and then there would be a board of directors independent of Bite dance over tiktok global. So Little more detail there for you to consider.
"We are going to start with some earnings. and honestly, this is one of those situations where you put earnings in air quotes. Because we're talking about groupon and the first quarter results. They actually weren't as bad as wall. Street was fearing. groupon still lost a lot of money and shares down about ten percent today. Yeah, it was not a great quarter for groupon. The shares the sales fell thirty five percent. Gross profit was down thirty four percent they laid off or furloughed about twenty seven hundred employees out of their sixty three hundred employees, and they also have a new CEO and coo left, so it's been a wild couple of months for your opponent hasn't been great. I'm glad you mentioned the management change because that was something I. SORTA noticed this morning when I was reading about this quarterly report and one of the statements was from interim CEO Aaron Cooper Aaron. Cooper's Bennett groupon for a decade or so, but I was like well. Wait a minute. What's the interim and yeah, as you mentioned a couple of months ago? The board basically said that the CEO the chief operating officer and the. Oh, yeah you. You're both Outta here. So. I'm not even sure where the silver lining is right now with group on because on top of everything else last week they executed the dreaded reverse stock split, and in this case it was a one for twenty. Stock splits so for those unfamiliar. Regular stock split is you sometimes companies will come out and say hit a two one split. If you own it for every one share you own your now going to have to, but of course the prices cut in half the reverse split is the opposite because they're trying to boost their stock price, and so they came out and said forever twenty shares you own. You'RE GONNA. Get One so I mean the management shake-up. The fact that Aaron Cooper has been there a decade and still has the interim tag on his CEO Title I. Don't Know Him, but I think it'd be a little miffed if that were the case. You have to wonder what the board is up to there. And then you know you and I were talking about this earlier today. Maria I. Mean this is we're in the middle of a pandemic. I think of group on I know. They have several business lines, but I think of them as more of like the experience company for a long time that's been their marketing like. Hey, go out and take a hot air balloon ride and we're going to get you a discount on that and that sort of thing and. Know again. It's not all of their business, but they are really taking a hit in this environment. Yeah, I think that the experiences is really where they get their bread and butter. That's what they're known for they are trying to look they break out their revenues in terms of their local and their travel revenue travel revenues less than ten percent local revenues, almost ninety one percent of that revenue, but a good chunk of local revenues experiences within that local space and so i. don't think that. That will bounce back anytime soon. I guess the only silver lining would be that as state start reopening, people and companies will be so desperate for anyone to come. have really good deals in the TRI news utilized. groupon and people will try to utilize it if they don't have. That steady income that they're used to, but it's still not a great outlook for groupon. It's a good point and I think that. One of the things they talk about active customer base. It'll be interesting to see if they're able to grow that in the next three to six months. I'm wondering if you think I mean. They have between North America where they have about twenty five million active customers and an international of of North America another sixteen million, so they got about forty forty, two million active customers. This is not a big company. The market cap is about seven hundred fifty million dollars. Do you think? Do. You think someone's going to swoop in and by group on just so they can get that active customer base, or do you think that there are still enough question marks that? That's not in the cards right now I. think it would be kind of a smart acquisition for some people to get you that bigger customer base, and for people to continue to implement deals. Everyone everyone. I love a good deal. I know a lot of people who have a good deal so having those options are pretty smart. If you're a big retailer or you want exposure into at a growing customer base of people who are generally live in cities, like deals like experiences I feel like it's pretty uh smart to grow that customer base if you need to.
Loopholes In Small Business Relief Program Allowed Thriving Companies To Cash In
"Here is the harsh math of the paycheck protection program. Hundreds of billions of dollars in USA government loans are not nearly enough for every small business in need so in one company gets alone. It that others may not. That's why it matters that accompany received millions at the very moment that it's business was booming. Npr An investigative correspondent Cheryl W Thompson reports. If there's one sector of the economy that's in high demand right now. It's medical testing earlier this month. Long island-based Kim Bio Diagnostics was one of the first companies to get emergency. Fda approval for blood tests to detect covert nineteen antibodies and says board member and former interim CEO Gil page. They're looking to grow and order. I the ramp and as the things we need to do to increase Armenia factoring capabilities. You know we felt like having the supplemental a dollar amount or law is very helpful in helping. Us employs people alone. She's referring to the SBA paycheck protection. Program Kim biometrics diagnostic tests for all kinds of infectious diseases. They worked on HIV EBOLA ZEKA and others. Fda approval of companies fingerprint cove in nineteen tests created a huge opportunity. Their stock price averaged about five dollars a share over the last year and yesterday it closed at about eleven dollars the paycheck protection loan would give them the liquidity to help them grow. They applied for and got nearly three million dollars. When you get these pandemics and there's all of a sudden this big rush and you need to be able to supply the problem is. That's not what the paycheck protection program is designed to do. The goal here isn't to expand the size of companies. The goal here is to kind of keep them alive while we get through this crisis. Margot D- wine is the senior policy director for the Committee for Responsible Federal Budget in Washington. Dc He says the program is for companies that are struggling losing customers laying off employees on the brink of shutting down companies. Have to self certify that they need this money because they are experiencing adverse effects if they are not experiencing adverse effects. It's probably inappropriate. Gilpin says it was totally proper for Kim Bio which has gotten government grants over the years to work on diagnostic testing to take the paycheck protection. Money when you have a crisis locked it a lot of the customer base that you dependent upon your revenue Kinda slip. Serve here to the side so another. I stay viable and we felt like we needed to participate in stock. Price doesn't represent necessarily cash in the bank. One issue with the first round of disbursements. Was that the law was murky. Florida Republican senator. Rick Scott expressed concern last week. The company's not heard by the pandemic found loopholes and got millions of dollars and remember even though they're giving us loans. Most of the money will be forgiven by the government. As long as it's used appropriately earlier this week officials began issuing a second round of loans. Three hundred and eleven billion dollars. The question is whether mistakes will be repeated. Go Wind says in fact in this next round of funds it looks like the SBA. We'll be doing some more oversight Treasury Secretary. Steve MNUCHIN has tow companies that received money but may not have qualified that they have a grace period to return it the SBA told NPR. That two billion dollars has been declined to return so far that money will now be available in the current application process. Geico page the board member at Kim Bio says the company hasn't decided whether to return the nearly three million dollar loan it

Des Moines Water Works Shelters-In-Place to Respond to Coronavirus
"Are in the midst of the corona virus pandemic and the water utility sectors. Incredible response to the situation I'm very happy to be joined by Some folks from Moines waterworks. I have Ted Corrigan. He is interim CEO and general manager. Ted How're you doing? I'm doing just fine travis. Thank you great and I have Kyle Danley. He is director of water production. Kyle how are you doing good? Thanks troves great. Thank you both for coming on so the reason I wanted to talk to you is because I I saw an article in the media about steps you all have taken to continue your operations which includes having some staff shelter in place at the facility there And this just shows the incredible dedication of people in our sector. It shows how we are really on the front lines of public health protection. And how you all are first responders really out there when there is a a situation like this so just big appreciation your way for it. Could you just described this approach that Moines waterworks has taken to continuing its operations? Sure you know we have had a contagious disease. Response Plan in place for many years. And as the co Ed. Nineteen things started to unfold. We realized that this particular virus appear to be very contagious. Much more contagious than other things we dealt with so we thought it was important to consider sheltering in place that was part of our plan but we thought we were going to need shelter people in place for a longer period of time We settled on two weeks as the appropriate length of time. Just based on things we had heard coming from the health community and whatnot and then when we still thought about sheltering people for two weeks. We thought we'd better do this right. We'd better make sure that they're comfortable. Better make sure they have food. Eat laundry facilities shower facilities really just couldn't imagine asking our folks to sleep on cots in the break room for two weeks so we did And up deciding that we would rent. Some campers. Some some Nicer Campers so the folks would have a place to get away at night. they are working twelve hour shifts Seven days a week for two weeks straight wanted them to have a decent place to get away and get cleaned up and have some privacy if they wanted it and we've set up a quite a pantry down there Cow Can probably talk more about what's going on inside he's are inside Guy But we really thought we needed to get the folks setup and in a way that would be sustainable for a two week period. How many how many people are involved in that that sheltering in place they're being onsite. Currently we have twenty one people sequestered across the three water treatment plants. Okay so you have three different locations than and when you put this plant plan into action. Was it something where the staff were pre identified? Did THEY HAVE TO VOLUNTEER. Where they how did that? Go about from a personnel standpoint. Well we knew what skill sets we needed. We needed operators. Obviously we needed maintenance and repair folks We wanted some support folks in some supervisors so as more a case of just identifying the skill and then I would let kyle walk through how they actually identified the individual people within those skill sets. We did look at the skill sets that we had and we. We tried to limit the amount of staff that had to be here as much as we could. We have typically about sixty staff members and water production operate that three plants of sixty remote sites. I we got down to about twenty or a little over twenty people so about a third of our staff being here again. It's a mix of operators maintenance staff laboratory staff and Fab shop staff to help make repairs on things so we scaled down as small as we possibly could annoying that. This thing is probably going to go on for weeks at a time. We're GONNA need other people to come in and trying to give some staff to get home to their families for a few weeks before their call back in against Looking at the smallest amount of group we could to meet our regulatory needs to continue to operate the plants and maintain them As we need to continue to serve water and serve Central Iowa down. That was one of my questions was. What'S THE PLAN FOR Kind of medium term long term here. So you're going to the ideas that every two weeks the team will kind of rotate out? Yes every two weeks we will rotate out or on our fourth day. Right now. On the verse. Two Week period staff has been extremely supportive They understand that during their public health role and that they need to take time away from their family and friends to make sure that the community is served Getting clean drinking water. So we've had great staff support in order to help out to to come in and spend their two weeks here so we were greatly appreciative of that on the inside their kyle. Talk a little bit more about What daily life is like now? I mean obviously you're doing everything with the operations and the facility and keeping keeping the treatment going but What's it like just as a person being in this situation? That's pretty unprecedented right. Sure it's we always spend a lotta time here anyway but never twenty four seven so being on the fourth day Things have been pretty good. The first day was a little hectic. Just getting everybody settled into the campers. it's very cold. Still appeared campers had been on winterized. We have a lot of folks that are not campers just having to understand how to operate the campers and things like that that a challenge the first couple of days and trying to get all the food in here for everybody's needs that was a challenge when we first started setting this up a couple of weeks ago that was a lot of the supermarkets were having limited supply of food so we were challenged trying to get food. Come in here We purchased xtra refrigerators and deep freezers. Now that we've got power Full hookups all. The Campers Setup which was a chore itself trying to get Water and sewer and power to all these campers onsite and refrigeration and all the campers were a little more refrigeration storage here but Food was certainly a challenge as we were planning this and trying to get things. Set up so Things are Set up nicely now kind of getting back to our normal Work schedule At least getting bill do normal work duties and things like that but Long days twelve hour days. That's a little adjustment some for some employees but again they've had a great attitude and they realized that they have a big role in helping the community and we just have outstanding staff. Yeah do you. Does it look like you will have two different waves of people that just kind of keep coming back two weeks on two weeks off or do you have more staff than that. Or what's kind of the numbers game look like? Well we again. We have about sixty staff members but I'm guessing the Sun will be here for two weeks off in the back for two weeks. Others may be every six weeks shifts are coming in it. All depends on their their health. We're checking in with staff daily. Make sure if they're home. Are you healthy? And Are you able to come back in you know? I always assuming that we're could get some staff members. They get sick. That's going to mix up the schedule And others are willing to come in and they have to do a backpack shift. We already have plenty of people that are volunteering to do that. If necessary. If they're co workers are getting sick they're not able to come back in so I think the schedule is going to be very dynamic. Is we see how how the community is doing. And how our staff is doing outside the Levy and making sure they're staying healthy and things like that so Hopefully we'll get most of them will the get two weeks off and be able to be back with their families for a couple of weeks but We shall see how things play forward. Yeah so how? How else are you keeping the morale up then Given the twelve weeks and the campers and you know I mean you got everybody works together but yeah how he how. He keeps things as light as you can well. Certainly the campers were a big help as Ted mentioned. No one wants to sleep on air mattresses and the plant plant is a very noisy place trying to sleep here With backwash is and everything else Pumps motors running would just not be a very comfortable place. A staff is very grateful to have campers bill to get away We've also been working with our it department. They are helping to set up. Better Wifi In the campground area so to speak where we have the camper. So that folks can get to these campers and be able to skype their family and friends. have some communication autry all to watch TV or keep up on the news and stuff like that. So we understand that technologies of wouldn't for our staff so they do have a few hours off before the end of their shift. They could reach out to their family and and have some normalcy to to watch the shows that they want to and things like that. That has been important. Certainly food is always important. Keeping a raise. Got What they wanted with. A need to So yeah it's it's been very positive so
Groupon axes CEO and COO as company looks to mount a recovery during a crisis
"Before we get into the mailbag. Let's talk about groupon because shares of groupon are up ten percent on the news that rich Williams who's the CEO and Steve Krizner. Who's the chief operating officer are leaving immediately? Yeah and we don't really have a lot of other details other than groupon is saying both remain employed by the company. There's no comment from groupon at this point on the reason for the changes. I'm I've never been more interested in groupon I mean the the CEO and the CEO are walking out the door or are leaving those jobs immediately and the stock goes up ten percent. Well I mean you can certainly make the argument that they weren't really getting the job done right. I mean if you look at groupon usually just the fundamentals of the business. I mean we've talked about groupon ever since they went public in. What was it alphabet offered? Was it around. Three billion was it six billion dollars that they that they offered groupon back in the day. It was some unusual things I when we when we look at the state of groupon. Now I mean clearly in hindsight they should have taken that deal Because I'm Nina. Revenue is is is winding down right. I mean we're revenue growth is non-existent. It's it's It's not a profitable company. I mean there's a company that's facing a lot of challenges and so I don't really know why Management Lee's I'm sure this is probably a bit of a response do just to the greater market reaction. We've had over here Over the past several days in you know we've seen this play out before with other companies I mean. Jc Penney obviously has gone through a lot of leadership changes. And we've seen when former leader step down in new leader step in. I mean there is some enthusiasm because maybe there's a light at the end of the tunnel there I I don't know in case that's really something. Investors should expect. I do think it's really fascinating to look at so so the Aaron Cooper is going to step in as the interim CEO while the company ultimately looks for a permanency. Yoda's possible that Mr Cooper gets that job at the end of the day. But it you know he. He was awarded in. He's going to receive an award of four million restricted restricted share units For this enemy vests over over time. It four million restricted share unit. Sounds like a lot but but then you look at we're groupon stock is today at just under a dollar and well. Maybe that doesn't look is is great as it sounds On paper and I mean he's going to obviously get a salary and bonus In in an extremely challenging role in trying to figure out this company's place in our world because I think before there was maybe at least the argument the groupon possesses some brand equity that maybe a bigger network out there could exploit and benefit from. I'm not so sure that's really even the case now And so I you know I mean a market pop today. Notwithstanding not sure this really should should Make you feel any better about either owning shares or potentially owning shares. But but you know hey listen if you could certainly be wrong. I mean Mr Cooper could have a plan in place in you know. Bring MORE VALUE TO THE

It seems that the big plans that Mazzola had last year to diversify its revenue stream beyond simply cashing big checks from Google for their share of the search revenue. Those blades not exactly panned out quoting tech crunch in an internal memo Mozilla chairwoman and interim CEO Mitchell Baker specifically Wrigley mentioned the slow roll out of the organization's new revenue generating products as the reason.

You may recall that we expect it to be earning revenue in two thousand nine hundred and twenty thousand from new subscription products as well as higher revenue from sources outside outside of search. This did not happen. Baker writes in her memo are twenty nineteen plan underestimated how long it would take to build and ship new revenue generating products given that and all we learned in two thousand nineteen about the pace of innovation. We decided to take a more conservative approach to projecting our revenue for twenty twenty. We also agreed to a principle of living within within our means of not spending more than we earn for the foreseeable future and quote Mozilla had been testing a bunch of subscription based services like the Fire Fox private network and a device level.

He dismissed several preferring to rely for direction on Google and Olympics and other metrics in twenty sixteen he called creative executives.

"How startups are run and they approach Diversey it's increasingly in the spotlight we work is the highest profile example last month co founder Adam Newman was forced out as CEO in the company's shelved its plans for an IPO both actions were taken partly to calm investors corporate governance concerns joining me to discuss the importance of diversity and ethics at start ups is Ellen pao founder and CEO of project include she's also the former interim CEO of reddit on Friday Ellen will speak at tack crunch disrupt making the case that running an ethical tech company means a better bottom line Ellen thanks for joining me I first wanted to start with sort of corporate governance problem that's come up so much recently particularly in the example of we work how do you measure of boards corporate governance is that the fact that they need a female on the board what is good corporate governance look like to you it's an interesting question because I think we stray very far from what it started out when I was in law school we talked a lot about all the people that you're supposed to treat as her constituents and that includes not test them the nesters but also employees and your community and the public at large and I think we've moved from serving the public and taking care of employees to justice focus on block generation a lot of that comes from some changes that started with Google when they started their corporate formation the founders had a huge super vote for each share of stock that they had that gave them control of the company I don't know if it still goes on to this day but they've had a super voting control of all sorts of different issues and that has come down to a lot of start ups and that have formed sense so my understanding as we work had maybe twenty votes per share. for the founder and CEO which made him the ultimate decider of of many things and when you have a board that can't really do that much because of its founder has so much control you wonder if that's actually going to be effective at all are the markets for companies and doing a good enough job of making boards diverse enough early on you can't just do it right before you're about to go public what's happening five years previously. I think there's a problem both at the board level and at the executive level where you know yeah this is ongoing problem in tech were VC firms have very few women they have very few people of color and they have a tiny tiny fraction you can count the number of women of color especially from underrepresented groups and a lot of time since early boards are formed by investors and it's the senior partners and managing partners who get to sit on the boards and make these decisions and often they are very homogeneous they are talking to people who look like them and who don't experience a lot of the things that people from different groups experience they don't have the exposure they live in a bubble and when you have a board that is very homogeneous they often miss big things and if you look at a lot of companies and the problems that they are in because they don't have other voices they don't have other perspectives they don't understand that Hey people who are renting on Airbnb might be from different groups and there might be some racism if you have pictures and there are you know how we can address that and they end up addressing it much leaders is a like five years later when they start getting scale and it and then they have to rebuild the whole system so then why doesn't apple tech companies look like to you know it starts from the very beginning when you're hiring the first engineers when you're hiring the first marketing people when you're hiring the first when you're building your company you have to think about like am I looking at all the right places for my team and my only hiring from my friends and my only hiring people who look like me and my only harm people like from my fraternity in the early days so like finding people who are coming from different experiences finding people who are coming from different backgrounds so they have different perspectives is really porn from the very early days so a project include we have programs to help encourage early stage startups to really. look in measure and you know hold themselves accountable for the diversity on their teams and to make sure that they're including those people from different groups in a way that everybody's having a good experience what do the numbers actually show you about the bottom line of companies that have diverse and inclusion versus those that do not I think what mackenzie and and we need to have done a lot of work to show that companies that have racial and gender diversity I think our thirty five percent more likely to have better financial results so that's a huge percentage if I'm if I'm running a company I would much rather have those odds be better by thirty five percent than not and I just don't understand why companies are not. in reading the research and internalizing it and bringing together more diverse boards and more diverse management people you are part of that change you're an investor it yourself as you take a look at the companies in which you're investing and the VC pipeline how diverse doesn't look how involved are you in the day to day to make sure that's included it's for me it starts at the investment level like when I am thinking about investing I talked to the founders about diversity and inclusion and whether it's a party especially if the team doesn't have much diversity in the founder group to start and I only work with people who are interested if there are you know planning on going the way that we've gone for the past five six decades intact great they're twenty people can help you and there are plenty of people who would be happy to for me it's less interesting he knew just from a broader perspective we take a look at a lot of the IPOs that have gone south this year what's the pressure to be profitable especially the start up these days. how I don't I think with the recent IPOs kind of imploding or you're not being able to get out or going down a significant amount people are all the sudden realizing the markets are not rewarding you know are not rewarding our customer base me for your customer base they're actually looking for a long term strategy and long term business model and that is driving more more investors I think to look earlier like we can't just write out a big. set of broke numbers we actually need to look at the dollars and the cash flow and the actual profitability and that is changing how I think it I think I don't see the whole swath of investments but from my perspective people are getting a little bit more focused on like what are your revenue numbers what is your business plan for getting to profitability and how are you going to be able to be a long term business as well and a lot of the other concerns have been about valuation as you take a look at the investing landscape do things fell over valued Teo river valley for a long time and I think you know you look at these last companies for the raising him billions and billions of dollars it's incredibly it's just a very frothy but I think it's been like on this pace of growing valuation for many many years so it doesn't feel like it there was a sudden jump to like this hugely frothy evaluation it's been like this on going climb and now I think it's finally come to the point where the maybe the bubble's going to burst finally here are companies like softbank big money coming in I think structurally change the environment or can you still compete. that's a good question so I ness of the very early stage when it might be just two founders or it might just be like five employees and. I think everybody's kind of. trying to expand what they cover so you know people at my level are trying to raise funds so that they can invest in the next stage when they see like which of the early early stage startups are actually making huge gains and I can double down and put more money in because I wasn't able to get that much ownership because the valuations are so high I and now you see firm saying no you shouldn't work with individual investors you should only work with firms because firms are going earlier and earlier so they can have that in a kind of birds eye view into what's working sooner and get into them you know with with an advantage because they have the relationship so I things are still changing so it's not clear I hope there's still room for people like me because the firms that are out there today are very homogeneous and if you don't allow new players to come in it's the same that way well we look forward to your panel tomorrow at techcrunch disrupt thinking that was project include founder and CEO Ellen pao. coming up Amazon is.

"O'neil at the editor's desk. Taylor van Cise now that the redacted version of the mole report is out Democrats in congress are hoping to take a look at the unredacted version of the report and some are wondering if it's congress that should decide on the obstruction of Justice question. Matt sabotage is a national security reporter for the Washington Post, and the author of the posts new book, the Muller report any joins me on the KOMO Newsline. Good afternoon. Thank you for having me. This is not an easy question for for many to answer. I don't think. But is there a clear path forward for congress to take the reins and the role of prosecutor in this situation? Gosh, there really isn't. I mean, they're in kind of a tough spot as as attorney general bar was when Muller decided he wasn't going to decide on the question of obstruction. He sort of lays out in his report all kinds of possibly obstructive. Episode. But then he doesn't do what a prosecutor normally does which is say, and we should prosecute or and we shouldn't prosecute Bill bar. The attorney general has stepped into heat doesn't think the evidence is there. But because Muller himself doesn't do that many people in congress think that should be on them. But there doesn't seem to be a great consensus among even Democrats about what to do next summer kind of walking right up to the line of initiating impeachment. Talks others are trying to tamp that down. No Republicans that I've seen so far have really been moved off of their position by this report. But it is still very early. This is voluminous document. I'm sure congressional offices are still digesting this they're still working to get the unredacted version of this report, and we're only on day two here. So a lot more to come while many pundits were wondering if his staffers could be fired for speaking to the special counsel in many ways, they actually kind of saved him from expli-. Obstructing Justice yet. So interesting that's almost one of the conclusions. That Muller comes to write that Trump tried to order these really dramatic things. One of the most notable to me was he told Don Mcgann White House counsel, then to essentially buy your Muller Muller fired by the acting attorney general over the Russia investigation, rod Rosenstein and began just doesn't do it in their other episodes like this. So the staff really do save him from taking the dramatic steps that would push the country to kind of a constitutional crisis considering the reductions that are there in the report, would you anticipate any big bombshell findings? If an unredacted version never comes out or less redacted version, of course, tough to say because you don't know what you don't know. But this is a very very complete picture. I was stunned by how they seem to consider almost no one peripheral. This named names. You know, what people told the special counsel? In ways that were unflattering sometimes those witnesses, and and especially to the president. And especially in the obstruction section really lays out a compelling narrative. It's always possible. There's something behind redaction that's explosive. But I think we have the gist here. And we'll see what congress does with that. As we mentioned. You are the author of the new book the mullahs report from the Washington Post, what could readers expect there. I mean, I've I've been following your coverage, you know, as as you publish online, but what's going to be in the book. So we're publishing the Muller report, that's one. But what we've also done is put together a variety of the key court documents of from investigation and added kind of our own commentary those and then wrote a pretty expansive. I would call it an introduction to the mall report just to kind of set the scene for people. And and get them thinking about how this investigation came about kind of setting the narrative that the report itself doesn't of course anyone. Can get the Muller report for free, right? But we'll we'll package it up for you like a nice book. And and I hope people will read the a report whether it's because they buy it from author just download it from the special counsels website. It's a really important document that kind of belongs in people's houses. Madsen Pataki with us on KOMO news. National security reporter for the Washington Post.

So that's unsurprising earnings miss is substantial particularly in one q. So again when you step back and look at it is causing a disproportionate amount of harm. We hope that it comes back in the second half of the year. That's where all the other companies in the space. They're saying they also missed but the expectations in their cases TI esky ki-hyon slum research where low enough that they were the stocks rallied right in this case that is not the case because the bar was low, but they went lower. What's what what I was just going to say because we saw those other results as we go into tomorrow. Is there a little bit of a contagion that goes through the rest of the chips? So this this sort of rights itself, right? Don't let we are not in the last few weeks. We've been taken aback way the strength of the of the rally, and we're we are setup into Allie. The chip Rodney and are set up into twenty nineteen is we we want this love hate relationship with semiconductors to go way. We weren't apathy. Right. When people don't care about semiconductors anymore. That's when it's an interesting time to look at it. Right. When companies are still trading adroitly fifteen times, it's a median multiple the large gap semiconductor group from Bloomberg intelligence and earnings have been cut only seven percent or twenty nine hundred then earnings needs to be cut far more dramatically in multiple needs to come down a little bit more. But more importantly, we warned expectations to going, right? And I just want to point out some other players Texas Instruments down point three percent as a.

Netflix Raises Prices on All of Its Subscription Plans
"The. This is tech news briefing im Tanya boost dose reporting from the newsroom in New York net flicks and not kill net. Flicks. Raise prices for all of its subscription plans. How much and how will your binge sensibilities be impacted that's after these headlines. And there is even more coming down the stream Comcast's NBC, universal said it has plans to launch another ad supported streaming video service for the world that will be free to pay TV subscribers adding to a plethora of coming options for consumers from big media companies the currently unnamed service, which NBC plans to launch in twenty twenty will include content from the company's TV and film franchises. In addition to original and acquired programming. At Intel board members are still in search of one certain CEO it needs to fill the open position left by Brian Cranach ousted in June after the board discovered he had an affair with an employee. According to the journal CEO blog Intel's board has indicated that a CEO from outside. The company is a possibility CFO Bob swan. It's currently serving as interim CEO. And if you're tired of the buzzing sound currently keeping you awake. You may have one new one to contend with soon federal air safety regulators for the first time proposed allowing small drones to routinely fly over crowds of people and at night. The Wall Street Journal's Andy pastor says the preliminary rules released this week, call for enhanced training of ground operators and separate categories of drones based on weight and other criteria coming up that binge will cost you even more money every month. Netflix raises prices on all of its subscription plans. Details after this. Net. Flicks has raised prices for all of its subscription plans. It will increase the price of its most popular plan. Eighteen percent to thirteen dollars a month. That's no longer eleven dollars. That plan allows users to stream from two screens at the same time. The most basic plan which allows a single stream in standard Finnish. In will go up one dollar to nine dollars a month. The new rates will go into effect immediately for new customers and be applied to the accounts of existing customers in the next few months. So get ready for that. Let's talk about it more. Joining us now from Los Angeles is Wall Street Journal reporter Joe Flint Joe, thanks for having me. Of course. So you know to see what Netflix was back in the day. And to look at where it is. Now, it's this huge Hollywood heavy hitter. That's represented through its big projects. It's successful content. The award show success and with the rest of the country, I paused in grimace when I heard that my subscription fee was gonna go up. But realistically, this was only a matter of time. Right. Turns out you need a lot of money to keep that going wooing Hollywood is not cheap. And that's what net flicks is doing a lot of lately. Correct. And Netflix is the first time they've raised their rates in almost a year year and a half or so and not to sound like a net flicks pitchman, but it is still in terms of entertainment dollars, a relative bargain compared to the typical monthly cable Bill, even the it's still cheaper than HBO's direct to consumer streaming service. So it is still a lower price option for a lot of people this new landscape that we're in there's so much new competition from what one might call overwhelming streaming options and no end in sight. So how does net flicks? Look at that. And is that driving up costs even further? Well that is going to face a challenge in the coming years. And in clearly, I think I think that's what's motivating in part, their they're increase the ability to create new content and acquire popular reruns is going to be challenged because three of the major producers of content are launching their own services. We have Walt Disney company, which is acquiring twenty per Century, Fox. So really they're taking to people out of the out of the ballgame. Comcast yesterday said NBC universal will launch an advertiser supported streaming site and Warner media which is used to be Time Warner is now owned by AT and T is also planning it service. So that means that the hit shows in their library, many of which appear on Netflix, like friends like scandal, like sons of anarchy like the office that drive people to Netflix and are very popular there. Some will be leaving for sure. And that is will be a big challenge for for Netflix is much. It's noise they make with their original shows, it's these older reruns that really keep people there, and he's companies also create a lot of original content for Netflix. And and they're all saying, well, Disney is not but Comcast. And and more media are saying, hey, we still wanna make original shows for net flicks. But I do wonder going forward how much of that will be just talk versus what they really want to do which is get their own services going we've discussed how some of the digital consume in public might feel about it. How does Wall Street Phil what does any market action of this news? Tell us. I have a feeling I know the answer. Well, I think you into a lot of people on Wall Street. Netflix is still an undervalued under undervalued in terms of its subscriber fees. So I don't think it's being necessarily reviewed negatively their stock is up. They're going to have earnings on Thurs. Thursday, where it's expected though again, and that's a lot of strong global subscriber growth. So I think there's a general consensus here that there's still room for Netflix to go in terms of its subscriber fees before they have to really worry about alienating customers not end on Joe, Flint. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me techniques briefing, im Tanya boost reporting from the newsroom in New York. Thanks for listening.

They did get there from the Associated Press apple has become the world's first publicly traded company to be valued at one, trillion dollars the financial fruit of silence technology that has, redefined what we expect from our assets the, milestone reached yesterday marks the latest, triumph of a trend setting company that to Mavericks named Steve started in silicone valley Silicon Valley. Eisold silicone valley garage forty two years ago Two things do things on this one I remember there was a quote, I love the quote unquote was that that Steve Jobs Created technology that you didn't know you couldn't live without right whether that was great yeah the second one, is my own in that apple has created technology that forces you to have to replace it after a certain number of. Years which is why they become, the first trillion dollar company, because we had to replace Crimen that we, buy because we now can't live without it even though we didn't know that beforehand Devious and the weird thing. Is we're always eager to replace them the new. One I'm in the middle of that. With my I'm in, that cycle with my ipad right now it's starting to, do the same thing the last one did but when I got this one is just, slowing down the websites aren't loading and I and I know you're not supposed to do the updates but I can't stand having a little notification Seniority I. Don't I don't have that. Problem the achievement seemed unimaginable in nineteen Ninety-seven when apple teetered on the edge of bankruptcy with stock trading for less than one dollar on a split adjusted basis and its market value dropping below two billion dollars to. Survive Applebrook bought back its once exiled, co founder Steve Jobs as interim CEO and turned turned to its archival Microsoft for a one hundred and fifty million dollar cash infusion to help pay its. Bills inter from Microsoft is, like we shouldn't have done that That was a mistake if someone had dared to buy ten ten thousand dollars worth of stock at that point of desperation the investment. Would now be worth about, two point six million dollars You, know, it's it's it's great news I saw people trying to sort of politicize this and make it. You know, you get, a left right thing you know crediting Trump and you know, I I I'm not gonna say that the uptick in the economy doesn't have, something to do with it but really I mean this is just a, testament to to apple being very innovative providing like John said products that you didn't know you wanted. And now you we've all sort of become dependent on not maybe not an, apple, product but that type of technology that apple led the way I'm like, as partisan, as they come in I, didn't for a second even take it to a to a Trump left right softening yesterday I was more surprised, because I know that after jobs died you know there was a lot of and, I think I think most of that was I don't wanna put it. In the category of. Fake news but I think most of, that was just the media trying. To find an angle but, I remember all the talk around whether or not, they could remain As relevant as they were because jobs, was such a unique visionary so, when actually. What I, saw, this, I was like. I was like genuine like whoa okay yeah and then I remembered. We hadn't, really had those stories in in. In quite, a long time and it's, it's, also, a testament to the power of failure I mean the you know the not everything apple has. Put out, there not, everything apple has created has been a success but they've never, been afraid to innovate they've never been afraid to offer something different and and, and when the ones that that work work you see they they turned, into the world's first trillion dollar company well and the thing is about it about apple is that. It was such a it still is maybe less so now because so many. People? Have them. So it's it's more obviously mainstream but you know my dad, was one, of the first two to, hop on board with with apple with with the small that tiny PC I think he actually still has it. For crying out loud but I remember when you saw the little apple logo on, the back of a car it was very much a cult a cult Thing when it when it started there were two very. Distinct camps and I know it's still carry somewhat of that, but again it's a lot more mainstream than it was back then we will continue with, SAM's top five coming up right, after this Justice and drew.
