We're definitely not out of the woods yet. We have this successful vaccine burlap continuing so there's some anxiety for people who say wait. Wait too quickly. Or i was expecting it this much. There's not managing that money as well. I also people who said this is my shot. This is money. I never expected to have the money and never expected to have the. I don't want to mess it up. I don't wanna see it disappear. Taxes taxes is such an important component to this and the experts say should start setting aside money for that immediately. That's something that has to be one of the first line deduction because especially we've we've now seen the last tax season pass but especially for people who were trading in the last year or maybe had never traded previously. You're going to be unfamiliar with things like the capital gains tax. They're not going to understand. How the profits on these assets You know how long they've had them what we're taxed. How all of that comes to the other. So something especially with crypto currency. That people recommend that you go ahead and set aside the money on the front end when your tax bill comes not going to be shocked. You're not going to be surprised. You won't have to borrow from other parts of your portfolio. You'll be able to handle it and try to minimize next year. Even paying quarterly. They said might be smart that way. You just get ahead of it and you don't have to do it. All at once at the end mall said you may even have to take quarterly. Might be something that's mandatory. It depends on your own personal situation but in quarterly also allows us to not find yourself with a huge bill at the end of the year.

That way you know you have a little bit less money to play with the other worries lingering around and that i think obviously comes pretty naturally to people tax stuff is confusing for people thinking long term can be scary for people thinking immediately understanding that for example you could wipe out and student love or you could prepay right because another suggestion or all of a sudden own your home outright even things that handling them immediately think of them as some of the more pressing needs actually gives you more flexibility and freedom to tackle the other things on the list one of these tips that is so important is seeking advice in the right places for a lot of people that were at home during the pandemic and just kind of investing their money playing a little bit so to speak right investing in cryptocurrency as volatile as it is and you know you kinda hit it big with certain things you know maybe you were doing it by yourself. Maybe you didn't have any financial assistance advice at least going on at that time but if you do come into money it's important to get the right kind of advice you know. My wife was playing some of these stocks during it and she asked me question. I'm like i don't know what i'm doing with this.

As far as jbs goes what the cyber attack seems to have done is effect systems that it needs to run its meat. Plants and jbs is one of the biggest producers of meat in the us. It is the biggest beef processor in terms of cattle processed on any given day. It's one of the biggest processes of pork and then is the majority owner of pilgrim's pride which is the second-biggest chicken company so the affects a huge part of the us food chain here and jbs was effectively left to tell its workers late monday that they would not be able to show up to the plants in places due to fall out from this cyberattack and we should note that. Jbs hasn't commented on the ransomware aspect. Or where the attack originated jacob. What are you hearing from the company. What is jbs saying about when operations will return to normal. Jimmy is trying to get back up to speed here today wednesday. They've told workers at the majority of the plants in the us that they'll be coming into work as per usual today. There are some plants that are not running early shifts. There's some plans that are not doing particular types of processing today. A lot of this has to do with this sort of chain of events that's required in meat processing where you initially need to slaughter the animals than start to take part. You can do finer sorts of processing to make different products. And so there's a sequence of events that needs to happen to do different sorts of processing in the plants but they say they're getting back up and running. Jbs said last night in a statement from their chief executive that they expect the majority of their plans to be operational today. They said they still shipped product from most of their plants in the us yesterday to buyers like restaurants and retailers for example however we have spoken here in the last twenty four hours to a number of food distributors who have tried to make contingency plans here their deliveries from jbs or not coming. They're trying to figure out where they can buy poultry beef and so on from sources. Wait let's talk about those smaller suppliers. How has this attack. Impacted the food supply chain which we know was already under pressure from the pandemic and other factors. How does this attack. Now complicate matters well. That's exactly right. The meat industry in particular has been dealing with really tight supplies these last few months and that's driven partly by production challenges just all of the companies are dealing with staffing challenges that their plans trying to get enough people in there to do these jobs. The demand from the food service world in particular has really taken off as restaurants reopen. They wanna serve more meat than so. The demand for things like chicken wings and chicken breasts in particular has just shot higher and what we've heard from some of these food service distributors that act as middlemen between meat processors like jbs restaurants and grocery stores and so on. They're having to scramble to make sure that they can fill orders and that there will still be meet that ordinarily would have come from. Jbs going to these buyers. Jbs might seem like an unlikely target. But jacob we're seeing these types of attacks on a broad range of businesses now is this changing conversations about what's considered critical infrastructure. The around the meat packing industry in particular changed with the pandemic last spring. President trump at the time had put in place an executive order that designated these meat packing plants as critical infrastructure for the us and therefore shielded them from state and local pressure to close down on account of the pandemic. now something like this exposes Different side but this is really spotlighting. The fact that the digitization of the agriculture and food supply chain is made companies. Like jbs more vulnerable to these sorts of taxes Computer systems now grain processing for feed monitor conditions for livestock and poultry measure productivity in plants and control processing systems and logistics. And you know these systems affect not only production and transport of the meat itself but also the management of live poultry cattle and hogs. And so this really is a core risk that these companies face right now. That's wall street journal. Agriculture reporter jacob bungee jacob. Thank you so much for your time today. Thank you and.

Is your daily charge pretty discussed. This is our editor in charge of breaking news. Came welcome kerry. Hey thanks for having me so what happened to jbs. Gps which is one of the world's largest food companies was hit by ransomware attack That impacted some of its plants in north america in australia as a result it sort of had to shut down operations at a lot of its meat processing packaging plants. The white house said these attacks were likely carried out by criminal organization based in russia. We don't have a ton of details there and we're still sort of waiting to see what the full impact is gonna be officials from the united food and commercial workers union which represents a lot of workers at. Gps plants said all of the company's beef plants in the us shutdown guy. Okay so this is. This is a pretty big problem and say the sounds very similar to what happened to colonial pipeline last month right. There's a ransomware tax. That's basically taken systems offline just for a quick refresher for our listeners Even though we we did discuss this a month ago it's gifts. Quick description of what ransomware is and why it's so easy so shutdown system because of it right so read somewhere is type of malware that will scramble a company's data and computer data and they will hold it hostage until the ransom is paid in theory. If you pay the ransom you might get your data back. But there's also no guarantees in these situations. You might not get all your data back. Some of the data might get stolen on. Hackers might sort of threaten to publish it later. The nakimora money But basically it's it software that scrambles your computer and makes its. They can't use it right. The idea of sort of a double impact there with with some ransomware cases where they not only hold your data hostage but also threatened to expose it to the public and basically seeking twice the payout. I i know you know. Federal officials law enforcement officials recommend that. You've not pay ransomware. But there are obviously a lot of pressure to get businesses back online companies. Have to walk that fine line. Here's the colonial tack exposed the vulnerability on gas supply. Obviously we saw in some of the shortage or at least the perceived shortage of gas a gas station throughout the east coast. I'm curious how this attack..

"Need to go a little bit out of order of what we were planning on talking about here. Because i've been teasing this Jbs cyber attack. It seems for like the last hour haven't been able to get to it. So let's talk about this This cyber attack and what's going on and others limited information right now. Yeah there definitely is but Jbs did reveal over the weekend that it has been the subject of a cyber attack. There is not a lot of information out yet i love her. They have closed several of their packing plants including In canada And in australia as well and A number of other plants Have either either shut down or have had shifts cancel we're we're hearing that Pilgrim's pride which is owned by jbs. has closed Meat processing facilities in utah texas and wisconsin and has cancelled some shifts at plants in iowa and and here in in colorado so We're the the the hack Appears to be a very serious hack and the effects of it. are seem to be spreading right now from plant to plant. And as you know Tyler tanner rather We've had A major attack on different infrastructure in the us with the pipeline Most recently that caused that re taback on the east coast and gas prices soaring and It was almost reminiscent of one thousand. Nine hundred seventy s fuel shortages Back in in the southeast and east here a few weeks ago and now another attack on The the meat supply meat processing facilities for one of the nation's largest meat processing companies and. I think that's why another reason i you watch this. This will probably pick up some steam here and of course the jbs is is going to be able to control this situation at least for the media aspect because they were the one who recognize internally i is why are we i. Is this turning into a trend. Or what are we seeing here. Well i think it definitely is turning into a trend and you know the the oil pipeline hack was traced to bad actors in russia and the the company actually paid them. Four point four million dollars as ransom for for To get their back up and running. We don't know. I've not seen any reports yet on. Wear this hat originated. But they're clearly a bad actors around the world that You know it's not how the possibility that they are. Testing various aspects of major parts of the of the us economy From energy supply the now food supply and jbs is as. You're probably aware accounts for about a quarter of all beef capacity in the us alone and of course they are a global company Jbs usa based in greeley as well as their pilgrim's pride unit based in greeley but their their main headquarters is in brazil Another major beef producer And with major operations in australia so they are a global company and this could have very a wide reaching. It's already having very wide reaching Ramifications be futures of Have gone down at slumped Here with word of this and we're still waiting on A lot more information as to how severe it is. But when they're shutting down plants Around the world You know it's a. It's a significant hack. Yeah it's just crazy to think about how this this is the new way to to really affect the economy but really affect businesses to. Do you think that these big corporations these big companies are. They going to start spending even more money making sure. They've got top of the line software. Because when i think of jbs one of the first things that o or lack thereof rather. I don't think about their website. Or i don't think about. Oh how could you know hacking. That's just how it worked. But do you think these corporations are going to start spending more money on having top of the line. People making sure their stuff is secure. Well i think you will. I i think that there are certain sectors and and energy one One of them For certain I saw an article over the weekend that the federal government may take a greater role in ensuring the security cyber security of the energy infrastructure In the us. So i think the federal government likely will take a greater role and certainly private companies are going to have to get much more Serious about this threat It is a very significant threat. mentioned Jbs accounting for a quarter of beef production but it is a. It's actually the number one producer in the us. It accounts for about twenty three percent of the The nation's capacity So it's a very significant thing and we've had Cyber-attacks mini cyber-attacks in our region. she was victim of of cyber attack and a lot of its data was lost. We've had data That was lost with different healthcare providers in the region Over the years so it really doesn't matter what industry it is but It's a very severe threat In the case of the energy the oil pipeline This was a ransomware attack. Where bad actors in russia Basically took control and and The the pipeline company could not do anything without a getting without paying that ransomware to get the Get the information. They needed to to get back up and running again. We don't know what this hacking tales we don't know if it's a ransomware attack or or some other form of attack but with the pipeline was the colonial pipeline That that stopped Fuel flow for several days. Here in may and you remember the the gas shortages and the the soaring prices and the gas lines that we experienced so it's it's a significant thing and whether there Bad actors that might be domestic Here in the us or Foreign in russia or china or north korea or elsewhere It's a very significant Significant and and disconcerting trend right. Now hopefully they get it figured out quicker sooner rather than later so that we don't see that that trend that downward trend in the markets continue on. We're talking with. Chris would editor publisher of all right. Let's let's talk specs. Shall we Chris yeah why don't we go back of course as we've talked about before backs are At stands for special purpose acquisition company and essentially these are companies that have No operations of their own their foreign with the intent of going public so they go public with the intent of then merging with or acquiring other companies. That actually have products. We've seen this with lightning. E motors merged with a back and therefore Became a publicly traded company on the new york. Stock exchange The lightning motors out of london. we're seeing a company in boulder some logic planning to go public by merging with a back and here lately and we have Several some new back news to report There is a new that is launching in fort collins This is the ceo of a company called site com- which is a a a biotech company They are working on some Clinical trials right now for small doses of An opioid overdose medicine but their ceo has won a spac Seeking to raise one hundred. Fifteen million dollars They are going to be joining. The nasdaq capital market The see the spac is called. Sparta healthcare acquisition corporation and So they have filed to go public with this hundred fifteen million dollars back. We don't know whether this is tied to Siakam plans to go public or or if it would seek some other Acquisition target but a very significant new back in fort collins and and meanwhile Some of the facts that we have talked about including in the boulder market. There's a company called. Gore's group geo ari s that has about six packs And they have received a delisting notices from nasdaq because they were unable to file their quarterly reports on time They're saying we have some new requirements that That the sec has imposed for how stock warrants are treated so They have until july twentieth To Regain compliance with nasdaq And vile those reports They could receive an exemption Going to mid november to file the quarterly reports. But the sec. Did issues of new rules. here in the last month or so as to how some of these house backs treat Some of the stock warrants and Got derivative so it has caused some a little bit of upheaval in the stock market And gorge group is seen that with these delisting notices from nasdaq will and that's what i was just gonna ask. We're talking with chris. Would of biz west When you when you see this go on. I would have to imagine that the public trust in banks it. It has to take a hit. I mean it's not good. Pr to get that delisting notice. Yeah and You know we talked in the past about the out. Chips soared and popularly here The last year. And this year. And i think it might have caught the sec. Off guard a little bit so they had to put some new rules in place for how How some of the The stock warrants were treated and other other factors So it could be just growing pains. I had talked to people who say you know this is just a blip and Specs are here to stay so we'll have to see. I did see we're reporting today. That one of gore's groups specs Has announced its acquisition. Target now the state company that they're looking to acquire or merge with and thereby take that company public and i believe they have They have filed one of the quarterly reports For for one of the backs so A lot of A lot of changes into how house backs after report. Certain aspects of their financials with the sec and book certain things But i could be growing pains But we'll we'll have to see you know stats have a A limited amount of time to find their merger targets. I believe it's Two years I i'm pretty certain of that but anyway of back activities. Still and we will. We'll see what happens with these gorgeous backs here in the in the next couple of months. It's interesting to keep an eye on the trend to see if this is something that that is here to stay or if it could be a flash in the pan chris. Let's elevations credit union opening a new branch. Yeah elevations great. Unit course as based in boulder. It's the old university of colorado credit union Going back in time but they have now opened their third branch in fort collins. They they have a branch on east harmony road. That will be relocating A little bit further east here soon and they have a branch on south college but This one as a very significant project. It is a seventy eight thousand square foot building that they have built in old town at two twenty one east mountain avenue and The credit union is occupying a three thousand square feet. That branch opened on friday. The other aspects of that property are It's a it's multi. Use the office and retail as well as residential so elevations credit union which is Has about two and a half billion dollars in assets so very significant organization Now opening a third branch in fort collins well continued. Growth continued Well interesting questions coming out of this chris. What are some things that you're going to be keeping an eye on. Obviously i would imagine the jbs cyber attack. That's going to be at the top of the list for you. Watch and how that impacts you know because specifically here northern colorado. I mean. that's a lot of people that are working today and just at the plant or you know the truck drivers and stuff in there What do you. How do you expect that to play out. What else are you looking at watching. Well we're gonna we're gonna keep an eye on that and see if What they reveal in terms of the scope of that hack As a as we said it's obviously very significant thing but We want to know what what it will mean you know. How long will it take Four the plants get fully up and running again Not only in colorado but also globally so It has a lot of ramifications for our our entire economy. I mean just look at how much the Jbs and that industry How much of an impact. They have on the northern colorado and the colorado economy so very very significant. So we'll be watching that and Always lots of tracking to on action public companies as. Well also keep an eye on all of those things here chris. Thank you so much for your time as always enjoy catching up within. We'll talk with the next week. All right good thanks. Chris would editor publisher of biz. West magazine appreciate chris's insight on jbs and that's obviously a story. We're going to be continuing to track as well ten fifty one the time. Let's.

B. S. what has happened to them since this pandemic began how many have gotten sick so we have had seven deaths in the Greenlee put facility so I believe we have the largest death toll for the entire country total for our plant we have three hundred sixteen positive cases but we have not had testing for all of the workers so they did not until this week even offer testing for a symptomatic workers is so the plant was closed back in April after the third death at the plant so they are back in operating again but yes we've had several deaths since the plan was re opened and what are the conditions like at this point in the plan is the facility save how close together or the workers were kind of protection do they have so while the plant was closed the company did make some improvements to the plant like in the lunch rooms break rooms they put plexi glass dividers that on the fabrication side of the floor they did put metal dividers that they have markings on the floor to identify six foot of social distancing their staggering breaks also they do not have the highest level of personal protective equipment like respirators but without daily testing and they opened up that plant without testing all of the workers we've seen the numbers start to move up again you know the plant was about a hundred and twenty somewhere around there positive cases those were workers that were had symptoms that were tested at yesterday's numbers that we have three hundred and sixteen and they just started offering voluntary testing but out of sight that's not on the plant you know on the plant site you have to drop five to a community college and get tested and they also have the testing during work hours so they are going to have to do something about that personal protective equipment and areas in the plant where you just can't social distance well what do workers tell you are they glad to be going back into work or they're afraid you know a lot of workers are scared they need to be able to pay their rent and provide you know a living for their families a lot of workers are still grieving the death of their co workers and as well as their family members that died so we still have workers that are on ventilators you know we know of one family that soon have to make it to the you know the most horrible decision to take their family member there JB it's a J.
