But it will likely face all the same challenges that doomed president Donald Trump's bid in 2020 during which federal judges ruled the government had not provided proof that the app, which has more than a 100 million U.S. users presented enough of a national security risk to outweigh Americans First Amendment rights to free expression, and a stop number has and David Mackay bright for The New York Times, finding a buyer for TikTok may not be so easy. At a price of $50 billion or more, the value some analysts at TikTok could command, the social media platform would be too expensive for many companies, including competitors like snap. The tech giants that could afford it, such as Facebook owner meta, Google, and Microsoft are likely to shy away for fear of getting caught in years of antitrust scrutiny in the United States.

"Decide to merge. The easy thing is figuring out the numbers, figuring out all the legal issues that document, but then somebody's got to bring these two families together. How do you do it? Jack, you're hitting the hardest issue. When these mergers occur, the question is there a culture match and is there a mission match? I mentioned earlier medicine is my mission. Not all health systems have the same mission. So can you sit down on a piece of paper? And can you say how patients come first? Where that falls in your priority. And how you begin to approach it. And what your actual value systems are. I'll give you an example. We went through another individual who you know, you've interviewed both, I think, Jerry Fitzgerald and Brian Conley. And father hassler, too. George hassler. And George hassler. George has helped us build the culture at oakwood. And we work through a very long period of time. Where we had to build from the ground up, a belief system. And that blade system was based upon the oakwood credo, compassion respect, excellence diversity and ownership. I remember it today. And each one of those had line items of behaviors. And when we had embedded that into the culture, in terms of recruitment, we were kind of low end of the totem pole down a Dearborn trying to recruit people, and we had to kind of get what we could take. We could take what we could get. What we developed the oakwood credo and the word spread, we had more applicants for those jobs than we could count. And we could recruit superb people, because they believed in the oakwood credo. And every day when you'd start every meeting, whether you started at the board, whether it started at the executive meeting, or you're meeting on the floor with your nurses making rounds. You started by reciting the oakwood creative. So it's the belief system that counts. And I think that when you take two organizations and you can say, yeah, we can put that together and therefore the cultures will match. Then you're going to have a very good outcome. But it really depends upon making that commitment up front. And to me, that's part of the basics of what you do. And if you don't follow this basic, you have difficulty with the merger. And if you do follow the basics, none of these are ever easy, then one must remember it's something you have to work at extraordinarily actively because as I learned, negative cultures prevail. Unless you actively work at a positive culture. All right, you and your wife, your oldest son, Michael, special needs. Yes. And you mentioned Jerry Fitzgerald of awkward. Iconic. He and his wife also had a son special needs. And the two of the two groups, the two of you, where the four of you were instrumental in starting eaten academy. I believe in 1986, 26 years ago. Talk to us about eaten academy. So when Ginny and I moved back from Pennsylvania and we moved back to the Detroit area and we had a special needs kid. He was enrolled at the adventure school, which was the only school for kids like this in the state. And the fitzgeralds had been rolled their son Tom. That's where we met them. We became best friends. We realized that this school needed to have a resource base. It needed to have a permanent home. And it needed to have a stable management infrastructure dedicated to that mission. So with that, Jerry and his typical fashion went out and bought the old school and eaten avenue. The old Catholic school there. And said, okay, we got a school now. And Jerry was the first chair of the eating academy board. And after a surgery that I had had and I was really feeling not up to it, is Jenny put me in a car and we went down to Jerry's office, and at that point in time Jerry said to me, well, as he would, as Jerry was good at, he said, I'm going to step out of the academy board and they looked at me. So you're the next chair of the board. And I said, you got your while someone's down and you can't say no. That is a true story. But we started that and we put together a board of individuals and I would say the recruitment of Jenny and others, who are recognized the community need for this. And so we could put together a group of people who said, we need this in our community. That included originally pat Hartman, from Z Bart. Giuliani had been leaving. Nancy vlasic. And very, very importantly, mister mort Harris. Let's go. Okay, we're looking out the window to west grand boulevard. We got Henry Ford hospital on the right, but on the left is the Brigitte Harris. Cancer. Institute. $25 million donation from wart in her honor. He was an angel for you guys like it was an angel for so many. Tell us about more tears. I can't say the war was like a best friend. But mort mort was a man who could look forward. And a dent in new a community need when he saw it. And he was a man of action. And would try to make sure that happened. And the action that turned it around for us for eating academy. Was we decided we would make a kresge foundation grant application. And we're frankly told, sorry, we don't do things like this. Kresge only does bigger things. And we don't give out grants to folks like that. We wrote a $1 million grant and I was talking to Morton I said we can't get through the door. And Mark said, well, make an appointment, and just go make an appointment and we did that with the new headmistress. And he said, I'll go with you. So we went there, we met with the head of the kresge foundation at that time. And we presented our case. And he said, you have a good case. But we don't do this. But I'm here today because you're here with mister mort Harris. And he said this is worthy. He said, write the application for the grant, send it to me directly. We got a million bucks. And that's how we started our capital campaign. Thank you, mister Harris. Good for the community. He gave 25 million to Henry Ford. That's the largest gift Henry Ford ever got. He also gave 10 million bucks to Wayne state university in the school of medicine for scholarships for inner city kids who want to become doctors. Yes. At his funeral, a little more than a year ago, died at a 101, there were like 20 of these physicians in kids. Who have become doctors because of what errors. A mention. To say the least. All right. Whenever I've had somebody on the show that's had a special needs child, doctor. They refer to those people as their angel, their hero, their teacher, their gift from God. Why?

"So they can focus on what they should be focused on, which is caring for their patients. So we're trying to do all that for them. And we've now partnered with the national association of community health centers that oversees all 15,000 of these across the country. So that they know who to come to. And we're now amazingly being inundated with interest from health centers across the country who want to look into this. So that's the turnkey part of this. The financing part of this is solar has proliferated in our country as you well know over the 30 years through the use of tax credits. And so, well, let's say up until the inflation reduction act, the way that a nonprofit municipality school university would typically put solar on their building or campus was through a power purchase agreement and that's where you have an investor who wants to take advantage of the tax credits that that nonprofit is not eligible for, financing the system for the tax credits. Which is 30%, but they also get the depreciation of the asset biscuits a little convoluted and complicated, but many people know about this structure. And then that entity then that got the solar on their building has now reduced power costs because they're producing much of their power through solar. So they're paying less to their electricity company because they're getting their power from the solar panels that were put on their building for them. So now they take that savings from their energy bill from the electricity bill and they use it to pay off the balance of the system after the tax credits and depreciation. So that's the structure we can do for health centers because they're all nonprofits. We have socially minded tax investors who believe in this mission and we're able to also get pretty low cost of debt from foundations, the kresge foundation just gave us a program related investment because they care about this issue of climate change and health. And so we can pay for the systems through the use of tax investors, low cost of debt, no upfront cost to the health center, and then they just pay it off through the savings they're now getting on their electric bill. And we try to do it for a short of a term as possible so that they can own it with in 5 years if they want to. Okay, so in my writings, beyond so just let me ask you, and I realize this is hard to average because the size of community health centers and providers vary. They're building sizes vary. But can you answer this question that generally what amount of consumption

The Great Fail

"Started over a century ago when Pennsylvania native SS kresge, a young traveling salesman, met retail store pioneer Frank Winfield woolworth. Mister woolworth and his woolworth stores were already very well known back then turning impressive profits selling nickel and dime items. So young kresge would sell to all of woolworth's 19 stores and over those two years developed a strong rapport with mister woolworth, who became like a mentor to him and helped him understand the variety store business model. Kresge caught the entrepreneurial bug and within years invested 6700 from his savings and started his very own nickel and dime store in Memphis. These stores would sell everyday items like stuff for the house, toys, clothing, kitchen items, and it would be offered at low prices, and it was so successful that he added a second store the following year by 1912 krusty had 85 locations, but what really set it over the edge was that kresge took on a more daring approach than that of woolworth during World War I, kresge experimented with his prices raising them as high as a buck, and that really catapulted his success. The company was listed on the prestigious New York Stock Exchange, and by 1924, kresge was worth $375 million, owning real estate for many of his stores, which at one time was as many as 600 across the nation. He went on to retire a year later and was succeeded by Harry Cunningham, who opened what was considered the first official Kmart store in San Fernando, California in 1962. It was supposed to be another kresky store, but for whatever reason, very late in the planning process, it was then named Kmart with the K presumably standing for kresge. And some consider this to be where the keyboard story really began in this 27,000 ft² store. Kmart was the first mover in the national discount retailer channel. They were originally kresge company, which was more or less a World War slash 5 and Tencent retailer. And they created a format called Kmart, which offered a broad array of apparel and consumables and accessories. And some hard lines in a largely suburban format. That smart Cohen, he's a professor at the Columbia University's graduate school of business teaching retail leadership and fundamentals. He's had over 20 years experience as president chairman and CEO. Most notably chairman and CEO of Sears Canada. So as professor Cohen puts it, Kmart had first mover advantage and as such, they were so popular that its doors continued to multiply through the 70s and 80s, opening its 2000th store by 1981 and.

"It's going to be a minute before the contours of an actual collective bargaining agreement come into focus for workers at the Amazon fulfillment center in Staten Island who voted to unionize last Friday. Amazon says it's evaluating options to contest the election, but the drive has put workplace conditions in the spotlight again. Like how the company uses technology to monitor its warehouse employees. Lisa kresge is a researcher at the UC Berkeley labor center. She said, there's a long history of unions negotiating over tech in the workplace, and Amazon warehouses use plenty of it. They all operate a general warehouse management system that manages the inventory orders and day to today operations. Workers will use radio frequency scanners that connect to that management systems software. And the data collected from these scanners enables Amazon to track the amount of time it takes a worker to pick and scan an item, their scanners, and the lag time between scans. And you've spoken to warehouse employees who've worked under these conditions, I have one worker explained to me that managers can basically just pull up a computer and see exactly how many minutes have passed since their last scan. And if they fall behind the scan on their rate or have too many scan errors, which is exhausting to be under that level of scrutiny all day long. So as tech like this being adopted at other companies, I mean, this is a common system in other warehouses. Some are much more advanced than others. Some warehouses are still using paper and clipboards. But across multiple industries, employers are adopting electronic monitoring and managing technologies. Are there any recent examples of workers sort of using union contracts to create guidelines or restrict this kind of tech and how it's integrated into their jobs? Sure, unions have a really long history of bargaining over technology and the specific types of issues that Amazon workers face. Back in the 1950s and 60s, unions bargained over productivity gains derived from assembly line automation and manufacturing. They were bargaining over concerns about job displacement and layoffs. And they negotiated for notice, advanced notice and information about the technologies, job security, job training. Starting in the 1980s and picking up in the 1990s with computer and Internet technologies, unions started bargaining over electronic monitoring. So the teamsters, for example, have negotiated multiple provisions related to electronic monitoring technologies that are embedded in their trucks or in their handheld devices to prohibit from that data being used to discipline workers or as the sole basis for evaluating workers. And in the last few years, the national sports leagues, for example, have negotiated around the sensors and wearable technologies that they wear recent NFL agreement prohibits data collection from sensors. And the NBA recently negotiated to have a provision that allows players union to retain experts who can actually validate the devices and set cybersecurity standards. What's been the upshot of these kinds of efforts? Because I can hear the management argument of this is going to slow down innovation, is up in the case. There's a lot of research out there about user design, user focused design and the technology world. And when you don't involve the people who actually use the systems in the design and development of them, they are not as effective. There are many examples where unions have actually negotiated for the introduction of new technology. So for example, you might hear negotiated for panic buttons for hotel housekeepers and this same technology can be used to track workers on a micro level as they move throughout the hotel, but the union placed limits on how the technology can be used by managers. And so it's really less about the technology itself and more about how.

"Assets They're already a member of me Matt Miller They're already a number of really wealthy people Think about the wealth that Jay Leno has created or Jerry Seinfeld Nick Mason who I'm sure you know is the drummer from Pink Floyd has amassed more than $1 billion portfolio of cars including a $250 million Ferrari two 50 gig I want to see you I want to hear about all I'm being told to wrap you And it's really upsetting because you're in the middle of a fantastic spiel about this podcast that you're going to let I want to listen to you We're all going to download I do want to listen to I think this is going to be a great workout I will say spurred by this is a little bit of inside baseball for listeners behind the scenes crystal grant works tirelessly every morning to produce or to direct your show Yes she's an unsung hero and she and I were just talking about this before I came on so that's why I thought for that reason that reason alone we should be downloading this future podcast Matt Miller Thank you so much as ever Bloomberg surveillance early edition up next Here on London DAB digital radio Now it is time to talk about the big take this morning which also is really interesting topic at long last women are starting to make waves in the hedge fund world 9 recently opened or soon to launch funds of staff been started by women which does signal a change to come perhaps progress has been pretty slow though of the thousands of hedge funds only about 80 are led by women today That's according to the kresge foundation which tracks the diversity of managers of more on this Bloomberg's hedge fund reporter nishan Kumar is here to tell us a bit more How about is female representation then in terms of risk-taking roles in the hedge fund industry It's terrible That's the only word to describe it And here are some statistics that will surprise you More you can visual funds are run by managers named David than by women And that's mutual funds and representations there is much higher Hedge fund industry is even worse In the U.S. which is the world's biggest investment management industry Only about 11% of funds are managed by women That compares with 37% of lawyers 49% of judges 35% of economists 26% of chiefs So this is a problem which is very unique to the asset management industry Well maybe the why is a very big question so tell me what is actually changing mission So that's where and that's why we wrote this story although this number 9 portfolio managed that we have profile may not look great because obviously every year hundreds of new hedge funds get target But in the context of the industry you mentioned there are only 80 hedge fund managers management firms led by exist in the world So this is a pretty sizable number And the more important thing is that some of these managers are going to get substantial capital At least two should get more than $1 billion Maybe three So that's changing in a big way It's quite a historic moment And partly the reason why it's happening is there is now more debate on diversity and ESG related stuff in the industry There is an improving demand for those products So we are hoping that this statistics will improve dramatically and why it's important is that although by number representation of women in at least mutual fund investment slightly better But if you look at from point of view of how much money they manage just about 1.3% of assets in the investment management industry which has about $73 trillion is managed by women led bonds So it's terrible So any debate on diversity ESG that improving prospects is going to lead to more pros which is really important for the industry And this is also happening at a moment when there is a generational shift going on in the industry especially in the hedge fund industry Many of the.

"You're listening to Bloomberg daybreak here We track the markets for you We give you an update on where we are Every 15 minutes so let's get to that The stock 600 up by four tenths of a percent the FTSE up four tenths The cac irons on the set acts up by half a percent The ibex in the foots you may both up by just over half a percent as well But really this is catch up from yesterday the U.S. equity markets managed to hold onto earlier gains and were pricing that in here in our European hours this morning U.S. futures the moves there look more muted Evenings and Dow futures look fairly flat NASDAQ futures actually losing a bit of steam losing some ground down by three tenths of 1% this morning MSCI Asia Pacific flats a positive upper tenth of a percent as the Asian equity markets deal with that news around DD that weighs on some of the tech stocks but it doesn't seem to be having too much of an impact on the broader picture for Asian equities Oil price is a little more solid this morning up 3% despite that release from all that going ahead with the planned increase in production at OPEC plus 71 76 is where we trade on Brent The U.S. ten year yield one 45 the dollar trades flat to positive up a tenth of a percent on the dollar index the Euro is flat to negative one 1296 right now and the pound loses around a quarter of 1% one 32 75 on cable So that is a look at where we are on the markets Let's get to some of our top stories And I mentioned that the Asian equity session was dealing with the DD story while the Chinese ride hailer didi global has begun preparations to withdraw from U.S. stock exchanges and will start work on a Hong Kong share sale Bloomberg reported last week that Chinese regulators had asked Dede's top executives to devise a plan to de list in the United States over concerns about data security sources say it aims to file for a Hong Kong listing around March We're also hearing about the U.S. getting tougher on their disclosure rules from Chinese and Hong Kong based companies So there's going to be two different strands to that same story Now in the United States we'll get the jobs report today with economists predicting a 550,000 increase in non farm payrolls Meanwhile more fed officials laid out the case for speeding up the removal of policy support amid higher inflation governor Randy qualls said he would support moving the end of the taper forward If we get to next spring and inflation is still over 4% and we've ended our taper and that's where we are I think the fed I will not be on the committee at that time but I think the fed would have to say seriously this has run too high for too long And we need to start using other tools So job report today could add to the case that for a more hawkish fed move Let's get to the news out of turkey and Fitch ratings has cut the outlook on turkey's sovereign credit rating to negative The credit assessor cited a deterioration in domestic confidence as a result of monetary easing it called premature the outlook change comes a day after president Recep Tay perdo one abruptly replaced his finance minister So those are some of the top stories we are covering this morning Now to our big take story of the morning at long last women are starting to make waves in the hedge fund world 9 recently opened or soon to launch funds started by women signal changes coming But progress remains slow All of the thousands of hedge funds around the world only about 80 are led by women today That is according to the kresge foundation which tracks the diversity of managers for more on this we're joined by Bloomberg hedge fund reporter nishant Kumar who's put together this morning's big take Nisha I'm very good to speak to you So how bad is female representation then in risk-taking roles in the hedge fund industry Well by any measure it's terrible and hedge funds diversity track record has been given poorer But that's about to undergo and extraordinary change But to give you some context more UK mutual funds are run by managers named David than by women In the U.S. the world's biggest investment management industry Only about 11% of the funds are managed by women And it's particularly a problem in the asset management industry because there are 37.5% of lowers are women 49% of judges in U.S. 34.5% of the economists are women 26% of chief executives are women So it's a problem that is concentrated in the investment management industry Okay so even compared to some other industries where you might expect to still and do see a bit of a bias towards mail managers even compared to those sectors the hedge fund industry performs badly but your piece is quite celebratory of some women who are managing to make it So what is changing So one thing that is changing dramatically over the last few years is the demand for diverse and ESG related products is booming So that's contributing to the debate investors are looking at these managers So that's a good thing And that's very important Because one is that the number of women fund managers are less But if you look at S 8 points of view only 1.3% of assets in the investment management industry which manages $70 trillion in the world is led by the men in minority fund managers So when there is more debate around diversity ESG that will eventually lead to more a.m. flowing into these managers The second thing is that data and performance over the long period of time has showed that diverse managers are better You are not losing out in performance In fact their performing even better And broadly there is a gene Richmond change going on in business Women portfolio managers with decades of experience at some of the most sophisticated investment firms in the world are striking out there on their own We have profiled 9 of them and you mentioned 80 that exist today This data might look very tiny because they are obviously hundreds of new husbands start every year But since the turn of the century we have only managed to get 80 And we have profiled 9 of them I think something extraordinary change is going on It's probably a story moment this year Nishan thank you very much for bringing us your story Bit by catch fund reporter nishan Kumar really interesting big take and I big take is the function to use on your Bloomberg if you want to get more details on that story and read the profiles that nishan has put together Let us get a look at the global news headlines.

"Hey, it's the best advice show. I'm Zach, today I'm so excited to get off of zoom and into the real world. Yeah. Yeah. Surely with some shares and art studio with her son. It's right off the highway on the west side of Detroit. But once you step inside, it's peaceful and warm. Her work covers the walls and it's stacked in piles on the floor. That's a collage of recent one. Wow. It's about I did a whole series on my family. Miss Woodson has been in Detroit since 1938 when her parents moved the family from Tennessee. She was just a baby. My great aunt. Today she's one of Detroit's most celebrated and beloved artists. She makes big colorful figurative paintings. And she's kind of obsessed with horses. I do a lot of horses with writers, women, writers, writers. After I leave, she's going to get back to one of her paintings. She's going to work on the front right leg of a burnt orange horse, galloping alongside a short haired woman dressed in white. But each one is a challenge, you know, and because you want to get another. Attitude. Within the work. Her work is part of permanent collections at the Detroit institute of arts and the Charles H Wright museum of African American history. Gretzky arts recently named her their eminent artist of 2021. They wrote about her, quote, decades of success as an artist, paired with her exceptional, and tireless commitment to ensure educational and career opportunities for all artists have ensured the story of art in Detroit is far more inclusive and honest than it would have been without her efforts. It is also insured her place as a revered and renowned pillar of Detroit's creative community. Miss Woodson has offered creative advice to students for decades. And perhaps the most foundational art lesson she teaches is this. Well, there are no wrong answers in your seeking to express an idea. And there's more than one way to get your idea. Across. Three plus three is 6, four plus two is 6. And 12 -6 is 6. And since there are no wrong answers, when we're starting out drawing as kids or adult beginners, miss Woodson teaches us, we don't need erasers on our pencils, and we do not throw our work away. So occasionally, I would hear a crumple crumple crumple of paper. Can I have another sheet of paper? What happened to the last sheet of paper? I messed up. You weren't pleased with that. No. Did you turn it over on the other side? I just want another sheet of paper. Said, well, let's say we're going to use all of it. I said, and remember, you have to keep all your drawings because we want to see the improvement. Can't see the improvement if it's in the wastebasket. Before we go, I'm going to leave you with a lesson. You can try at home today. You need 5 sheets of I was going to say typing. But nobody takes anything more. 5 sheets of paper. And draw a circle, freehand, hold your pencil so that your hand is not touching the paper. So your pencil see your hand is up. And then place the pencil point on the paper and using your shoulder in the motion in the whole motion, draw the circle and it can be big to take up the whole paper and go around. As many times as it takes you to see the circle come out. And remember if your hand is making the motion. And you do that. And then you do four more. And then you can put something inside of each of those circles. And now we're racing is that right? No, oh, do not erase. Sign it and date it. And put it in a little put it in a folder. This may be your beginning. My name is Shirley. Let's syn and I'm an artist. I'm a painter. I do collage work. And mixed media. And some new things on board. Always new things, huh? Yes, always. If you're in Detroit, it's not too late to catch Shirley Woodson's solo show at the Detroit artists market. It's called why do I delight? And it's running until October 23rd. I put a link to it in our show notes. To see some of miss Woodson's paintings, you should follow us at best advice show on Instagram. I posted a bunch of them there. The kresge foundation just put out a beautiful new monograph called a palette for the people, the vibrant world of Shirley Woodson. You can download it or order it at no cost while supplies last, I put a link to that in our show notes as well. What a joy it was to spend some time with miss Shirley Woodson. I hope it was for you.

Here for sure can quick numbers pseudoscience. What do you think. I'm gonna give this a eight okay mine. Too events are was seven okay. What about the pendulum story definitely influenced me there. Sure yeah you to a young mind. Someone who's interested in science. Yeah of this talk about testing and performing experiments. that's a good counterpoint. To to the argument you often hear of well. Maybe this is bad time so at least it gets kids interested. It gets people thinking about these things right. Someone got turned off but didn't up be eventually coming to rational perspective. Yeah except for about climate change. How 'bout creepy nece craziness. Yeah i mean this. Is this the best thing about the. Yeah it's creepy very fun creepy.

I would say at least seventy eight on craziness because just listening to kweskin describing what you're supposed to do with this kid.

It wasn't very expensive. I want to say it was like thirty bucks plus shipping. And what would you give this on a danger rating Ciro okay i'll give it slightly higher again thinking of pendulum. Anyone who took this really seriously as a child. I'll say three and if that started to think that climate change wasn't caused in part by human activity that's dangerous. Maybe he's evolved on that in that. Actually i think that is true. There's been us plenty of time in evidence.

"You had a long relationship with bruce. And his days at angelo. Gordon and i'd love to just start talking about. How do you think about someone who was an instructional manager. Now is doing something on his own. That's a completely different strategy in some sense. Great question probably something. I spent a lot of time on what interests me most about. Bruce is less about the product that he's managing and more the way he thinks i love to surround myself with people who are smarter than me people who think differently than me and even when he was at angelo gordon the thing that attracted me to him when i was investing with him in ceelo space was his willingness to be different from everybody else. I mean we all know in our industry like fomento israel and he is one person who nobody would ever be able to see queues being swayed by foam. Oh and when he left. Angelo gordon to do this pretty different thing. There was no concern. No i'm going to be out of the information flow of new york city. I'm going to be out of the information flow of a big institution. I'm going to be out of the information. Flow of all the broker dealers. It was just the opposite. He was like. I'm finally going to be able to go and think clearly without all the noise and that is what made me stay in touch with him at kresge. Even after he left angelo gordon and we spent some time evaluating the opportunity there he was just getting set up and just getting started and here at hackensack meridian. I've personally maintained a relationship with bruce since he laughed but then when i started here at hackensack meridian clearly reached out and let him know what i was doing. And explain kind of what i've inherited and how i'm thinking about building the portfolio for the long term and now with three plus years under his belt very curious to learn how has it been i think we even bruce talked in the podcast. Like timing couldn't have been worse launching a value shop in the last five years as bad timing and so just to get a check on his mental. Like where are you. And he talked pretty openly about that in the podcast and also in a recent letter that he wrote just really questioning a lot of different things and so checking in with him watching what he's building making sure he still is convicted in what he's doing as he was on day. One that's what i've been monitoring closely. There's a non-institutional element to what he's doing. Which is both endearing and in instances in an institution a risk. Hurry thinking about underwriting that and then how you might go about pulling the trigger. That's a great question so as an individual like look at his education his career background. He's clearly grown up in institutional firms and he knows what it means to be institutional. I want him to develop into that at still ache. That takes a lot of investment. You know what it takes to invest in back office and all the systems and support that you'll need. That's going to be critical. I think to gain institutional money and it's something that i'm watching. I haven't had that specific conversation with him. Like all right. Bruce if you really want institutional checks let's go through this kind of list because that view is a very easy to solve. Problem is going to invest it. They don't believe in the person in the process in the portfolio. Once we get that right then we say okay. Are we gonna invest in all the back office..

After telling houston matters last week they were going to create the policy. Ceo dr david calendar officially made the announcement yesterday in a statement memorial. Hermann says the decision is due to the current status of the pandemic with the delta variant showing quote no mercy on unvaccinated individuals memorial. Hermann says that more than eighty three percent of its workforce is already fully vaccinated that includes eighty seven percent of bedside staff ninety five percent of managers and one hundred percent of their executive team. Houston methodist was the first houston hospital to mandate the shots. Now a new report shows women and people of color in texas are disproportionately impacted from losing pandemic related unemployment benefits as are pulled. Benedetto tells us many people will actually make less money as they go back to work. Governor greg abbott halted pandemic on employment assistance for texans last month. Those were the federal benefits that paid out three hundred dollars a week. A report from january advisors shows that just under two hundred thousand. Texans were receiving those payments and without it they estimate seven thousand will actually lose money by going back to work. January advisers says two thirds of that population are women and eighty six percent of people of color. And that's paul di benedetto reporting there. Now that now that the cdc's moratorium on a fiction has expired more than twenty four hundred renters. In harris county are left vulnerable but as sara will ernst explains that only represents a sliver of people program was supposed to protect. According to the data firm january advisors only thirteen percent of harris county defendants saw the national moratorium delay or prevent eviction from happening. That's because the vast majority of households do not have attorneys representing them. In order to benefit from the ban. Defendant must fill out an affidavit and file it in court there currently is no state or local ordinance banning evictions despite rising cases caused by the delta variant meaning locally some twenty four hundred households who were protected by the policy could see their eviction cases now resume about sarah will ernst reporting there houston mayor sylvester turner issued a statement.

The promise -- and perceived peril -- of bringing green amenities to low-income communities
"Support for climate cast comes from bank of america financing clean energy initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets.

The minneapolis foundation has awarded its first round of grants designed to involve involve low income diverse communities in climate change initiatives. One of those is an effort from the city of saint paul x._l. Energy and our car to bring <unk> shared electric cars and charging stations to lower income communities but what will it take to get buy in from residents. Shomar givens is senior program officer at the kresge foundation and she just wrapped up a nationwide effort to bring climate solutions to fifteen low income communities. She joins me via skype shomar. Thanks for taking the time to talk with us on climate cast today but thank you for having me. I really appreciate it. Correct me if i'm wrong but i think i've seen some polls that show people of color and low income communities is are really strong advocates of climate solutions so i'm wondering what are the best methods that we can use to engage that support absolutely as poll well after poll after poll instead you have to study that shows that communities of color in particular are some of our strongest environmental advocates. I think the challenge is that these communities for a very long time have not been engaged in a way that connects the dots to their lived experiences communities of color low income communities are are disproportionately impacted by environmental hazards cumulative hazard and are often you know the first and worst hit by climate change however there's been a framing of climate that has not necessarily resonated with these communities but when you engage these communities and really connect that to the economic social public the health issues that they're facing every day. It's like a high of course and they become your strongest advocates. There's a project here in the twin cities. He's called our car that would bring shared electric vehicles into low income neighborhoods and i'm curious how your view that kind of green infrastructure structure project in a neighborhood versus more of a policy initiative at a broader level. I think that having electric infrastructure along communities is a good good thing. I do think that <hes> there is a tension right across the country about how we do i. I think it's not what we do. Right is how we do it. I think it's important martin to really get their voice around the best way right that we're deploying this type of electric vehicle infrastructure and we know that in this real estate had an income scenario that we live in these days you know it's hard for a lot of people to find affordable places to live so if we bring it infrastructure into low income home neighborhoods does the issue of gentrification become something we need to consider. There are communities that worry and are actually afraid to bring green.
