Pennsylvania Police Pursue Pierogies Pilferer

"Police in Pennsylvania pursue a pierogi pilferer. What? A burglar broke into a Pennsylvania home and stole a bag of pierogies. The pierogies valued at $10. What is a pierogi? Is it like a dumpling? Is that like a Polish dumpling? I believe so. All right, somebody should call us and explain what a pierogi is. The suspect, burglarized the apartment of Tyler white, who lives on trout run, the thief made off with a 5 pound bag of misses T's brand pierogies. Then we'll sell those at Kroger here. In addition to stealing the frozen pierogies, the burglar caused minor damage to drywall in the home's kitchen, did he break through like the Kool-Aid man? I have a definition. Oh, yeah. About this particular dish. Yes, please help. It's a filled dumpling made by wrapping the dough around a savory or sweet filling and cooking a bold water and it's originally from China. Thank you, grace baker. Founded in 1952, misses T's pierogies is the largest provider of pierogies in the country, offering many new flavor combinations as well as the original classics. This is all of the police report. Pierogies are equally amazing, boiled, baked, sauteed, grilled air fried or tossed in a slow cooker. All right, there you go.

"They want to get exposure into that. They want to be a part of that change. And again, it's such early days with this kind of movement of change. But shoppable moments is here forever. It's only going to get exacerbated and other experiential really exciting ways. We can drive inspiration in ways that we couldn't 5 years ago. And as we think about the evolution that's continuing to take shape appropriately from a technology standpoint with privacy legislation, this is our moment. This is a really important moment for customers first and foremost. The IAB, they released, I think it was roughly a year ago now. They did a release that talked about the lack of trust that exists within the advertiser ecosystem and back with companies and brands. And some of the data points that they published off of their research, 76% of consumers called sharing personal information and necessary evil. 36% were less comfortable sharing than they were your prior and 85% wish that more companies existed that they could trust their data with. That's a problem. That's a problem that no matter who you are within the industry, organizations need to step up and it goes back to that trusted value exchange, which we have decades of a relationship with with our consumers. It's all about driving change and creating experiences for a consumer for a customer. And again, when you do that right, advertisers line up publishers line up and ultimately, it's good for the ad ecosystem. And so that's our primary focus. And that's why we're engaged with brands directly. That's why we're engaged with agency agencies. Both the global agencies and commercial COEs, because they're a massive part of kind of unlocking and enabling this change, which is just so important for the industry. Yeah. And going back to that conversation and sort of funny how privacy like manifest 'cause I feel like, you know, if you have, okay, Kroger is like updates its grocers to have more self checkout or, you know, it's just a more like digital kind of screen experience..

"And advertisers ultimately can hold their media spend accountable to a very different grain that looks at transparent performance. And more productive ways. In terms of what, what Kroger looks for, I've listened to some earnings recently Macy's and target two and they've talked about Best Buy. They've talked about their ad business explicitly in ways that they haven't before, like really bring them up and discussing them. But it often feels like it isn't like a stand-alone revenue generator that's like the way you do are going out to agencies and building budgets. They really think of it as part of their profit margin management. It goes to like sales and administrative and Macy's really talks about how they're using it to limit their labor hours per sale per delivery or, you know, it's really about getting people to order to a store rather than to fulfill their door. Is that a big priority internally for Kroger two is like that's something that you think about or are you really focused more on the converged media opportunity? I hope that makes sense. We absolutely focus on driving and solving customer problems or opportunities. If you look at, you know, our focus is on helping customers making their lives easier. And we can do that through relevant content. So our focus is do the right thing for our customers drive productive change and the advertising ecosystem..

"A big part of the continuum that's going to influence behavior. Yeah, no, that's true. And I think people probably don't appreciate in the online ad world where money has come from newspaper and magazine and TV, how crazy much is spent on in store marketing like just coupons and where you sit on the shelf and in store placements is just such a massive pool of budgets within some of these big CPGs. Yeah, it's sometimes I get a peek into it and it's like, oh my God, that's crazy. Like I had no idea that like a proctor and gamble was spending more on in store kind of stuff like that, then online until fairly recently. So yeah, just a bit of sticker shock. And in terms of, in terms of getting into new categories, you've brought up CTV, I know Kroger works with Roku. We've discussed that. You know, are you doing more sort of like video CTV? Is like a partnership like with Roku, where you're sort of the, you know, the measurement data provider and Roku is the serving this campaign. Is that going to be like the primary way in there? Yeah, you know, where we're going to focus on creating continued bridges is based off of content publishers where consumers have a lot of energy and interest. And we announced our relationship with Roku, a little shy of two years ago, and that's where we can bring the same level of addressability into the TV space and look at what's happening within streaming TV relative to linear TV. And then the optionality that that provides for brand marketers is they expose different content and creative in a more precise way. We have a relationship with the likes of Pinterest and Pandora and we're nesting content under Kroger's Facebook and Instagram handles. And that this is an opportunity to bring more precision and relevance to consumers as they're on these heavy content engaged platforms and publisher networks. And that is part of the opportunity that we provide as we think about the opportunity to influence these buying behaviors more traditional awareness type channels. And then you think about many of those channels are becoming more performant in their own, where, again, through a click you're moving right into buy mode. And recently we were piloting QR codes within Roku's platform for some of our own products to capture this bi moment when somebody sitting in front of their screen. And engaging in that content where they can then move into commerce immediately based off of the content they just got exposed to. So that's going to continue to play out. And when you're going to see us continue to engage in those different elements is more through relationships with known publishers that are driving, driving interest, driving engagement, and where we can make that content work even harder for them. And typically when we run those relationships, the role that we can play is kind of sandwiched across that publisher ecosystem. We can identify the appropriate audience to expose different creative content to. We get long files back and we can measure the performance nature of that media..

"Connect and engage with people. Thank you, Shea. Welcome back. And I wanted to follow up on Kara, you were talking about retailers rethinking their position in advertising technology as an alternative or sort of a way to as a way to sort of substantiate viewability and these kind of other click through rate, the ingrained metrics that people that people use in the space and what it got me thinking about was how these grocer platforms Kroger target Walmart, even the very biggest ones, most established players in the space, often they're dealing with the retail media organization within marketing for that brand. It's a very specific and really purchase based store based group and here you are talking to really like the ad tech community, a very ad tech conversation, and a much broader part of the advertiser category. So yeah, how is that happening? Where are we? Where is Kroger in this transition? And where is where is brand shopper marketing organizations too with this transition? Yeah, it's a great question, James. I think the whole industry is still in the early innings for kind of structural and operational kind of influence and change that they're navigating through. And the projections for retail media and the scale and the influence of investment growth for the future is high marketers. They've declared retail media being a third wave of digital advertising following search and social. And when you look at their breakdown, retail media investment is tagged right now across a two year time horizon to influence over 30% of the total incremental dollars that are fueling into total media investment choices for brands. Look at what's happening with agencies where they're creating different commerce COEs appropriately. You can't.

"We've baked performance within the entire end to end cycle of identifying who brands want to expose based off of different activation tactics, kind of awareness and awareness objective versus conversion. Consideration wherever they may sit within that proverbial funnel, the performant nature of media is baked in through really direct and distinct KPIs. Gone are the days where, you know, focusing on efficiency, just kind of from a CPM perspective or assumptions on click through rate, assimilating to sales performance impact. Or viewability standards set the tone as a good media dollar invested. We really have to focus in more cleanly, more consistently across channels on the performance nature of media, meaning specifically the brand outcomes that they're unlocking. And that's what our conversation was. And continuing to drive that dialog of brands are passionate about it. The pressure that's sitting around where brands invest their dollars and the return that each of those dollars delivered is high, appropriately. We think about the change that's happening within the industry with respect to shoppable media and shoppable moments and the ability to influence a purchase with a click. That means that we can create more actionability and ultimately accountability to those media dollars and consumers are passionate for relevant content too. And so these start to come together in a really nice way to influence media buying practices as we look forward. So it's great that retail media is continuing to be at the table and set the stage. I think that, frankly, it takes all parties buy side sell side tech to come together to kind of cement these new practices. And Kroger is going to be at that table with other players as well. I do have a follow-up that I want to jump into, but we'll do that after the break. We're going to have a quick word from the sponsor..

"With the latest and greatest of executives in advertising technology, interesting people from across the space this week, you have me, James hirsch, filling in for Allison Schiff, our usual stalwart host, who's taken a well earned vacation. With me this week is Kara Pratt, a retail media, longtime veteran, current SVP at Kroger precision marketing, 84 51°, a lot of you know it as. Welcome Karen. Thanks for joining us. Thanks, James. Happy to be here. Great. So let's take a bit of a walk down memory lane. There's a lot of a lot of news and activity to talk about, but you have been in the category a while. Kroger's been Kroger's been added a while by the retail standards now, now everybody is really heavily invested in advertising. But yeah, so maybe like a quick, quick historical take. Like you were at dun humvee, which was acquired by Kroger in 2015, I think. Were you part of that transition? Yeah, I've been connected to the Kroger business for well over a decade and a half. Was with Nielsen early days and then came to the dun humvee family. For over 15 years or so, Don humvee USA was half owned by Kroger and half owned by Don humvee limited based in London. And in 2015, Kroger created their own wholly owned subsidiary called 84 51 to drive the analytics and activation for the Kroger company. I stayed with Don humvee at the time and have found my way back and back in close knit to the Kroger family and it's just a fantastic organization, fantastic leadership, fantastic impact across all of the communities that we serve across the United States. And obviously, as the advertising ecosystem continues to evolve, it's a great time to be in the industry and be with the leading grocer and driving some of that change. So what was the sort of the mission or almost like the day to day.

"Is what Kroger is doing here marking a shift in the discourse and policy around that, kind of a harder line here? Yeah, although it'll be tough to see how widespread this becomes. Surcharges are certainly a more novel approach. Companies have done such things in the past, such as charging, smokers, more for certain coverage, all in an attempt to encourage workers to adopt a healthier lifestyle and lower their healthcare costs. But such a move often requires employee support and getting that support isn't always easy, especially when you need to be involved. Let's talk about that. What does this mean for employees in this industry? Grocery workers, of course, can't do their work from home after all. And what role have unions played in terms of vaccine mandates? Well, it is important to note that most of the moves that Kroger is doing is for employees who are not part of the union, such as managers and other non union employees. Another company that has made such a move is delta, they started charging unvaccinated employees with an extra $200 a month for health insurance. And they were able to do that in part because they have fewer unions that they deal with than other major airlines. So it was easier for them to make such a move. For companies, though, like Kroger, they're in a difficult position. On the one hand, they want to protect their workers and keep them healthy. And they also want to show customers that they are on top of this situation and that their locations are healthy to visit. But companies also don't want to alienate a percentage of employees who may have concerns about vaccines, especially what is a tight labor market and they are mindful of the potential healthcare costs related to treating a COVID outbreak amid their workforce. So this could be a big risk for Kroger on the one hand, meaning they won't have to pay out those certain benefits on the other might alienate employees as you say. Yeah, I mean, it's a delicate balance that these companies are facing. Croker is saying that the changes are designed to create a healthier workplace and workforce. But they're also in a business where there is employee turnover and they face the risk of losing some employees at a time when it's difficult for many companies to hire needed workers. And stores like Kroger are also competing here with city and state rules as well. Especially for a company like Kroger that's an issue because Kroger's got supermarkets around the country and they have to deal with different laws in different regions of the country, complicating their ability to put together any sort of nationwide rules and regulations regarding COVID and vaccinations. That's Wall Street Journal, deputy corporate editor, George stahl, George, thanks so much for joining me today. Thank you. And finally, boardwalk, park place, Marvin gardens. Those original monopoly properties were taken from street names and Atlantic City, New Jersey for free. Now, there are many versions of monopoly, and the company top Trump games has licensed the rights from Hasbro to create some hyperlocal versions. In places from Worcester, Massachusetts, to Palm Springs, California. But getting a spot on these boards doesn't come cheap. Our reporter Jennifer levitz says some businesses have to pay real money. There was a bronze package, 21,000 for a square on the board. A silver package for 36,000 that you also got a community chess card, and then the 60,000 over three years was the higher package. And then for each package you would get a varying number of free monopoly games, which retail for around $40. But Jennifer says those prices and the game boards have sparked feuds between the makers and some of the more iconic local businesses. In Worcester, one pub owner who didn't make it on the board actually launched a protest. What he did is he held a monopoly demolition party at the tavern, and he borrowed a wood chipper, set it out back, and he fed monopoly games into the wood chipper in protest, and people brought in their monopoly games from home and fed them into there. And they had a mister monopoly mascot who had a black eye and was singing songs about monopoly and they just kind of had fun with it. And that's what's news for this Tuesday afternoon. We'll be back tomorrow morning..

Results are back from the first large real world study of COVID-19 vaccine efficacy against the omicron variant conducted by South Africa's largest private health insurer, the study found that two doses of the Pfizer and BioNTech shot provided less protection against Omar Khan that against delta. But the two doses still lowered the risk of hospitalization by 70% for infected people. The two dose regimen only prevented infection in one third of omicron cases compared to 80% of those with Delta. However, drawing broad conclusions from the results may be difficult, South Africa's population is much younger than that of Europe and the U.S.. There are also different levels of immunity. South Africa has higher numbers of prior infections and lower vaccination rates. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention home acron only accounts for about 3% of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. at the moment with higher concentrations about 13% in New York and New Jersey. In the UK, authorities say the number of omicron cases is doubling every two to three days. The strain now accounts for more than one in 5 cases of COVID-19 there. The producer price index a measure of the prices suppliers charge businesses and other customers rose 9.6% in November from a year ago. The latest data from the Labor Department suggests that consumer inflation will remain elevated into the new year.

The District of Columbia is suing too far right groups, the Proud Boys and the oath keepers alleging that they conspired to attack the capitol on January 6th to disrupt President Biden's election certification. The civil suit cites affidavits brought against defendants in federal criminal cases connected to the attack. The district is seeking compensatory statutory and punitive damages, including for its police department, which the district estimates incurred millions of dollars in cost during the week of January 6th. A lawyer for the oath keepers said the D.C. attorney general hadn't been duly appointed, a representative of the Proud Boys couldn't immediately be identified, an attorney for two of the defendants said the lawsuit was misguided and that his clients weren't responsible for any damages. And former New York governor Andrew Cuomo has been ordered to relinquish millions of dollars he received from his memoir on handling the COVID-19 pandemic.

But does Kroger's decision mark a shift in vaccination policy that others may follow, joining me now is deputy corporate editor George stahl, hi George, thanks for being here. Thank you. So George, can you give us some more details about what benefits Kroger is actually pulling back on? And what message this sends not only to the company's employees, but perhaps other businesses.

Notice that i take back what i said because previous in style reporting of this. Also the captions. Say credit amy graves. They don't actually label the people in them.

A famous person currently relevant went to this party and is photographed at this party and is not mentioned once in the copy. You heard the people mentioned in this. Everyone's mentioned in this appeal has mentioned. There's right like it's not like there's a real standard here. Everyone's mentioned lindsey.

That's alexander daryl. I'm sorry that's alexandra outing myself. On this one. Why wouldn't they mentioned her. I think it's because they literally didn't recognize her stop stop.

Ghost Kitchens See Light of Day During Pandemic

"Of ghost kitchens is expanding exponentially, as is investment in the concept. What's a ghost kitchen and then those? No, It's not a place where ghost is the chef Michelle Romano, Tech entrepreneur and co founder of Clear Coat. These are very small kitchens that are designed to serve only customers. That order from them from platforms like seamless or uber eats. And so there's no need for a storefront. There's no need for guests eating, Romano says. That means you don't have to invest a million dollars to start up a ghost kitchen like you would a regular restaurant. You can set up a ghost kitchen now. $50,000. Now This isn't just about startups and entrepreneurs. Grocery giant Kroger will begin preparing restaurant meals from Ralph's location in Los Angeles this fall. More kitchens will be added in stores later this year in a joint venture with Kitchen United, which specializes in ghost kitchens. As many as six different restaurant companies, including local, regional and national brands will be featured. Gregg

Uscca and a lot of these entities needs to be getting into that paywall pay to play and they need to go out to build entities like yours that have built themselves up and built a community a true community. I'm using the community word right. People should try it sometime. That's different than a following a fucking community and you're building that up and they should be harnessing that and it should be in hand in hand we should want to do it on the cheap to make it work and you should want to do it because they should be coming back to you and understand your value and you're worth you know what i mean.

The most humbling thing to me is when i talked to. Someone have no idea who i am. And i'd say i'm you know i'm blood origins on the guy who built on all.

"And i'm going to tie this in when i b. I can't not bring it up. You got a lot of people that became die hard irs. Some people call them trumpers. Some people call them red staters. Some people. just just call them. You know conservatives. The conservative movement got that huge jolt which was a good thing right and in many ways i was pulling in wishing don jr. at some point would have slid into to the secretary of interior gig. You know there was there. Was that talk for a while. And at the highest highs was such great support for the right side of the movement whether you agree with it or not there was momentum. There was real momentum. The problem is you got some people that came out really strong and you just got a lot of people that went into the closet. 'cause they were afraid they were going to become like marked correct so even on the hunting site like you said and that's smaller microcosm that we we live in breathing slick the to eight community really small outspoken group.

This can't do this in front of a camera. I don't wanna talk. You're absolutely right if you had if you asked me. The question is if you could have anything in this world when it has ties to hunting what would it be. Limited bows but i would say from my perspective i would say i want one hundred celebrities Who come out and say. I'm a hunter at the same time. And they can say it in such a way through us through our medium through origins doesn't even have to be to us. You know what. I think it is right with some of them you know how and i'm just speculating. I want to get your thoughts. I think some celebrities and some influence highly influential people. They come out because they feel. They need to use their platform to do it. And then some don't come because they just feel like they don't have to like i don't feel like i have to broadcast the world that i do jujitsu. I sucked but i've been doing it a while okay. I've been doing a long time. But i still broadcast. It's like my. You'd know if you listen to this show. I get it guys. Because i'll get people that'll come and blow like you can tell people you hire but you know what i'm saying like there there. There's this group of people that i think feel like they don't need to and it just takes more of less invasive conversation so part direct part of the reason i started the podcast was that reason less invasive Less brash lists chess browbeating. Whatever you wanna call it Less jaakko in it up. I mean just just a little just little softer and that's okay because you're right. Hunting is in the closet right now because we have a problem and unfortunately when the closet door gets.

"Big time has a pr problem and a perception problem. So what can i do to change that. And so there's two things i could do. Number one could explain to a non hunter on anti-junta who has an opinion about who you are as a hunter but they've never met you. They've never met a hunter. So how do i communicate one-humped his hot to that audience. That's how we started Then we've morphed the message to being well this so much more that goes into what hunting is and what hunting benefits wildlife around the world communities around the world people's lifestyles around the world. That people just don't know about and the reason they don't know about it is because unfortunately a lot of stuff in the hunting will ego driven and home and so if you don't put your ego out there you forget about the good stuff and so. I just decided let's do that. They should focus on the consequences. Focus on the good. Let's focus on our heart and that's what you tapped into now. You know where. I can go with this very easily. And everybody knows i can't stand the marketing and not only the to a community in the hunting community. This is universally known thing. I sat up here last week. And i said you wanna know the fucking problem with the gun. Industry the biggest problem with the gun industry when the biggest problem that plagued. It's an identity issue. Okay we all eat meat. Ama- simplify things. This is a thousand feet from my listeners. We all eat meat but it is kind of funny that some people wanna question the manner in in how it's provided or or have the these issues with hunting versus. I'll go order a pound bacon and it's the same thing i oversimplified it there guys but we're just for the sake of my conversation with you. We have this issue in the firearms business. Where for whatever reason whenever a gun rights issue comes up. It's a gun rights issue right. We put a navy seal on tv or we put a special. What the fuck does that have to do. a gun. rights is their paycheck affected by gun rights. No so we don't tap into the nfl's the gun owners. The ceo's be one because fox news doesn't then get sexy to give them the mike to it's. There's a lot of reasons right because it's obviously sounds more official. But i'll ask you the question. You know the second amendment in general carrying a gun in general has a fucking identity issue. Because we're the largest gun buyers. The last six eight twelve months based on the data minorities and women okay minorities and women but yet whenever a gun issue comes up right. It'd be like we have a navy. Seal michael o'malley on tv to talk about gun rights to do doing it. So i don't know anything about operating in a in a theater. A war right claimed from hunting perspective. That's what i really. Pride led origins in You look at our institute grandma social media or anything like that. You're gonna find people from all walks alive right. You're gonna find from the gym. Schalke of the world to the south korean who was adopted in michigan. Who's now a late adult onset. Hunter Right it's it's joe blow down the street. Credibility can understand what hunting means to them. One hundred percents across one hundred percent. And i agree with you. The problem is the marketing gurus are gods of our industries. Don't look so hold on from from hunting perspective. The marketing component of hunting.

"Kroger. There's there are tons of them down there in Florida. Don't I didn't know Kroger until I went down to clear water and watch the Phillies play. Then I saw Kroger's everywhere. Here's the headline. Kroger Drops Coconut milk Amid monkey allegations Now I immediately I I know you're laughing in there. I did, too. I was like, What is Kroger done? And how have they misconstrued coconut milk? Do you know what I immediately thought? What did I immediately think? Come on. And something racist, Of course. Yeah, because monkey Now we learned this with the Santas. When you say monkey around with monkey up something that's immediately racist. You can't even say monkey now without being a bigot. Right. So now the word monkey. It's just a trip word like you can't even say the word because it's immediately now you're racist. So when I read headline Kroger drops coconut milk amid monkey allegations I was like There were a couple of questions to my mind. What does that mean? How do you get coconut milk The monkey to Kroger. What's the What's the racial angler it for Once, folks, it's not racist. It has nothing to do with race. To my surprise. The selection of coconut milk for sale at Kroger is shrinking, and that's because they operate several regional supermarket changed 35 states. But they're pledging not to stock coconut products from Thai suppliers who have been accused of using monkeys as forced labor. Now I don't know why I find that entertaining. I know animal rights people won't I just think it's hilarious to imagine monkeys doing work like clock in and clocking out and having a smoke break. You know, like a Like a loony tunes. Cartoon morning, Ralph. Morning, Sam. I'm picturing monkeys and Fedor is showing up and hanging their coat and hat up and At the Coconut factory. I immediately think of what The Simpsons had a smoking monkey and big bang theory. No will, isn't it? Uh, family guy has the angry monkey that's right for the monkey under the closet or in the closet and debate. Peter has been pushing Kroger to stop selling coconut milk. From coconuts they say are made with coconuts harvested by monkeys since the Began investigating the alleged animal exploitation in 2019. Well, I mean, why don't you just give them a a minimum banana raise? Uh, come on. Just all they want is a living banana wage. Every can of coconut milk purchased from Chico A represents the misery of a chained up monkey. Any grocery store still buying from this brand after Peter exposed coconut cruelty. That's I don't think the phraseology sounds a little off. It's not coconuts. Monkey cruelty, isn't it? I'm coconut cruelty. Yeah, being cruel to the coconut, although Give people time. I'm sure they'll figure out how to get there. Peter says its members sent thousands of emails to Kroger. Held protests with people dressed as monkeys, and I see that now you're getting That's starting to get dangerous. It also dumped hundreds of what it says were humanly picked humanely picked coconuts that's well. I know that when I go coconut shopping. I don't know who's buying coconuts. Can we talk about that for a minute? Who's actually out there? Shopping for coconut? When was the last time you bought a coconut? And if so, why? I've never bought a coconut because it's a pain in the butt. Think the meat of the coconut out. I don't even know. Like what do you use a coconut? I'm not a fan anyway. But like what do you Who's buying whole coconuts. What do you do with them? That I don't know for cooking, I guess yes, that you can use a coconut like to. I know some people that do use coconut in the recipe. Cook, But I have no idea I would not buy a full coconut. I just think of mounds and almond joy. When I think a coconut any mind cracked and peeled and ready to go Given ongoing disruptions in our farm audits due to Covid 19. We were unable to confirm or refute the allegations, Kroger said. And as a result Can you imagine that in the world in all that's going on at this time in human history. There are people who are consumed with monkeys harvesting coconuts in Thailand. There. There are America. I want you to just just stop and consider this for a minute. There are Americans who go to the extent. Of gathering up quote humanely picked coconuts, setting them on sidewalks, dressing up in monkey suits. And picketing Kroger. That's what's going on in their life. Is that the sign of somebody that's got very little trouble in their world. A lot of money. Maybe none. Or maybe the American rescue plan is that it? The Thailand based maker of Chico, a coconut milk did not respond. They have denied using monkeys said they randomly selected coconut plantations to audit using a third party and did not find the use of monkey for coconut harvesting. Oh, okay. By the way, coconut milk just for just for your edification coconut milk products market has been expanding because of the increase in demand for dairy alternatives. So apparently, a lot of people are using coconut milk. My father in law was a vegan. He used almond.

"States across the US air lifting coronavirus mask mandates following new guidance from the CDC. A major turning point I can breathe again. I think that's fantastic. I think that's what everyone was waiting to hear the CDC saying fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks or practice social distancing indoors. In most places. I feel like a sense of freedom right now. I've already planned a mask burning party. So President Biden entering his Rose Garden briefing mask list, the White House confirming vaccinated staffers are no longer required to wear them A great milestone. Great day. Has been made possible. The extraordinary success we've had in vaccinated so many Americans so quickly on Capitol Hill. Some senators mid vote when the news came down, gleefully taking off their masks. But there are exceptions, the CDC saying fully vaccinated people should still wear masks in hospitals on Busses, trains, planes and if required by a state county employer or business in California. L. A County officials will not immediately follow the relaxed rules in Massachusetts. The mask mandate is staying in place for now. And there are still questions about what this means for places like schools, one of the nation's largest teachers unions planning to follow the guidance if everyone is vaccinated. In a classroom, Ben. It sounds like Everybody in that classroom could go massless, but you have to make sure everybody's vaccinated and you also have to make sure everybody's comfortable with it. The union representing retailing grocery store workers, saying in a statement it's confusing and fails to consider how it will impact essential workers who face frequent exposure to individuals who are not vaccinated and refused to wear masks. Kroger, the nation's second largest grocery chain, will continue to require everyone in their stores to wear a mask. Indoor mass mandates should go At some point, but not right away. We should just wait a little longer for more people to get vaccinated, also raising concerns news of a so called breakthrough outbreak among the New York Yankees at least eight fully vaccinated members, including Star shortstop Glaber Torrez testing

"Chain is betting big on robots. Kroger is building gigantic automated warehouses to catch I've been online grocery delivery. The robots made by Britain's Ocado, retrieve online orders and bring the items to human workers who begged them and make the deliveries. Critics Warren these pricey new facilities could be costly mistakes that food industry analyst Phil Lempert says. This is a smart move by Kroger. When we look at delivery when we look at clicking collect retailers are losing money on those Kroger's automated warehouse can pick a 50 item order and less than five minutes. One of the big advantages having these larger centers around the U. S. Is that they can enter markets that they don't have stores in right now, With automation comes the threat to jobs, Lempert says. His hope is that the grocery industry re trains displaced workers for service oriented jobs inside stores who does very emotional, and it's really human beings that bring the emotion to that shopping experience.

Texas set to reopen as health officials issue dire warning

"People in Texas are now able to walk around in public without a face mask to help curb the spread of covert 19. Businesses are also able to open at 100% capacity. Governor Greg Abbott says in light of the recent dip in covert 19 cases, he sees no reason the state can't get back to normal well for more on the implications of this decision there in Texas we have with us Dr Joel Mullen. She's a public health expert and epidemiologist at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas in Austin. Doctor Mullen Welcome. Thank you for having me Yes. So some stores like Kroger are still going to require masks. But others won't. How concerned are you about the spread of the virus without this mask mandate and with businesses at full capacity. I share the concern that releasing people from the mandates now is actually going to slow down progress and maybe even set us backwards in the response to the pandemic. Can we talk a little bit about what's happening across the state cases are down since the winter surge, But in Houston, specifically, death still average around 200 a day. Yes, we hear the story of Houston, where we've also learned that all of the known covert variants are being found, which once again means we worry about ongoing spread. That's the kind of warning sign that has officials they're concerned and that we should be paying attention to across the state. Yes. What you're talking about. There is Thies variants that have been found in Houston, the first one found in the UK, South Africa and Brazil. Those have shown to infect people more easily. How much could the spread of those actually complicate this recovery? One of the things that we've been trying to help people understand is that the fewer precautions that take the greater the risk there is for those variants to emerge and spread further. So could we be seeing the beginning of the next snowball forming? That would be one thing that I would worry about. And there's no such thing as a fixed border even inside of a state, which means that we would not expect that issue to remain just in Houston. I would like to add that Texas remains near the bottom ranking among states that have vaccinated their population. You were than one in 10. Texans have been fully vaccinated for covert thus far. So we have one of the most populous states in the US with one of the least vaccinated populations compared to other states. But Governor Abbott is actually pointing to the Oh the vaccine rollout is one of the reasons for lifting the mandate. I mean, what I'm hearing from you is that doesn't justify this latest order. So as a public health official, I always want to be able to tell people where there's optimism that the vaccines are rolling out is something to be optimistic about. That they are not rolling out as efficiently effectively and equitably as they ought to is a reason for us to be more motivated to do better. And to keep our guard up at the same time. Do you think, though with governor Abbott is saying, I mean, essentially that the rollout is happening. We're going to see a ramp up that that could offset what we're seeing in in terms of numbers and the potential for increase with this lifting of the mass mandate in the context of our saying herd immunity where we can really feel confident about Protection of the population being maybe 70 or 80%, but nobody can say the exact percentage says there's a long road to travel from where we are now to where we need to be even with vaccinations. Ah, lot of Texas is rural, and I remain concerned about what we're not hearing about communities there. Some of whom have not seen any vaccine yet, And we're also talking about a state where many people are still reeling in the aftermath off the power and water outages. That's right, because Texas is still recovering from those water outages and flooding. Before we let you go. I want to ask you about the implications of mixed messaging around the virus in your personal thoughts about all of this. Here's Houston police chief Art as a veto on MSNBC last week after the governor's announcement, we'll get what the governor says. Forget what the law says. What does our own humanity call upon us to do, and that's to be Cognisant that this is one of the best things we could do is wear masks. I mean, the chief is a high ranking official giving a very different plea than the governor with all of the experience you have in this crisis in the data available. What's your takeaway message for those who live in Texas who are now hearing all of these messages who understand that there is no mass mandate. And really just want some direction, moving forward. Would encourage people to think less about the sound bites and oppositional language. We can fight forever and in some places we probably will, because not everybody's always going to agree. But if we could organize around a shared desire to truly get to the other side of this together We could share some strategies that everybody ought to buy into and
