Two thousand five will share in the settlement. The faa has agreed to pay forty four million to resolve a long-standing lawsuit brought by former employees who alleged that their jobs were outsourced because of their ages. The case was filed in two thousand five when the faa decided to hand over the work of about two thousand employees notice flight services specialists to a private company faa officials including the head of the agency at the time were open about the aging specialised workforce being a factor in the outsourcing deal. According to evidence presented in the lawsuit but the case languished in the courts for years as one judge retired in the law firm that originally represented the employees was closed with the former employees reaching retirement age. A new team of lawyers began hashing out a settlement with the government last year. The faa did not admit wrongdoing and said in a statement that the settlement speaks for itself. The lawsuit initially sought to stop the privatization plan which involves giving a one point eight billion dollar contract to lockheed martin government services firm and weapons maker when that effort failed the specialist and support staff became lockheed employees their pay remained roughly the same but they lost out on lucrative air traffic control.

"And so there there are some enforcement mechanisms as part of the settlement itself, because when you're paying a premium, your wanting the best coverage, and it seems like there's a ton of games trying to prevent you from being evil. The utilize things properly, and this lawsuit is just for the silken shirt companies and the action. Will patients correct? Well, this one don't know this. Okay, so this this is for for these subscribers, and in some of them will be fit into the category of self insured. It's mostly it's gonna be mostly employers. Who buy health insurance for their employees, 31 of the Blues, and that's gonna be the majority the lion's share So most employers, it would be incoming upon them to go and try to track that down and try to figure out what kind of refund they get on. So it's gonna be mostly self insurance gonna be a small part of it, but but the providers themselves that's a different class. And the patients who knows whether the employers gonna allow that to trickle down. If he was taking out off when their benefits maybe they'll allow that put the patient or the employees to participate. And you feel that there will be a provider lawsuit as well, so they'll probably beginning double whammy for their behavior. Yeah, there's there is a provider lawsuit that also alleges a similar make similar allegations and I don't know the status of that, exactly, But I was I would suspect that it would be along the same track is this. It's gonna be a lot harder for that, though. Tonto, figure out how you get a refund. I mean, you know you pay they paid for him arrive versus cancer treatment versus that's a very difficult one. That's not really susceptible to class action payments. So that's got to be a lot longer. So 10. Supposedly it was in the agreement with the settlement that Blue Cross was going toe. I guess, change some of their policies and, you know, shape up or ship out type of thing. Do you know what changes they've made or are going to make And also do you think other insurance companies will also start toe? Be a little more above board. I guess if you will. Well, I don't have any hope that insurance. He's above it, So I'll address the last question first, you know, Look, it Z you Well, you don't want to get me started on Matt's a Anybody. Anybody who has who has tried Tomo fly for health insurance understands that it's a racket. It Z. It's fraught with peril. But in terms of, you know, other insurance companies and this sort of being a harbinger of bad bad behavior going checked or going corrected. You know, this is very, very unique to Blue Cross. The Blues really made a concerted effort if you go back all the way. 1987. That's when they sort of started these monopolistic practices and they kind of came out this way now whether it was sort of organic or whether it's intentional. Who knows? But the point is the Blue Cross, please chilled network. It's just a unique network and just in the health insurance field, But are they really because we're supposed to have insurance commissioners that are kind of that oversight committee to make sure they're doing the correct thing? But yet they're getting incentivized. By these insurance companies, right? So you know if you talk torus, but insurance commissioners and you try to figure out who appointed them and where they came from. Most of them are industry players. Right or or they're very, very close to the industry. So if you were a subscribe, right, you're an employee and you go out or you're just trying to see subscribe the insurance on the open market. You don't really have. You're not a constituent. See, Per se. There's no way you're gonna have the same voice in front of the insurance commissioner as, say, Blue Cross blue Shield or never anthem they lobby. Yes, right. They love me. And you know, they know the system and they're there all the time. You may be there, Kimberly. Maybe in front of the insurance commissioner wants on a complaint about they didn't pay for an M R. I Right. The anthem's gonna be there every day. So you know that's sort of a cynical way to look at it, but it's It's just It's just just human nature and politics. So maybe instead of being appointed to the position they should be elected into that oversight. Yeah, you know, sometimes I don't know why I stayed away. But you know, some are elected, someone appointed but Most most folks to get to that that position. Have an extensive background in the industry. They mean they just did. But we we've covered this in previous shows where they're also taking payoffs. And I don't know how you can receive an incentive from the person that you're supposed to be making sure don't pull things and that they're being on the path of the straight. Nero is possible. But this lawsuit seems very interesting. The historic $2.7 billion settlement Ah, blue car. Hospital. She'll thank you for shedding some light on it.

One of those lawsuits called the Shawn Watson, a serial predator. His lawyer, Rusty Hard, said in the statement that his law firm has strong evidence showing that one of the lawsuits alleging sexual assault against his client is false and that it calls into question the legitimacy of the other cases as well. NBC Houston sports reporter Vanessa Bridges and put on Twitter at Sports Vanessa. She reported details under Sean watching allegations and that multiple sources close to the situation told her the shot watching did have sexual counters with some of the accusers. But those sources insist those encounters were completely consensual. Ryan Smith, ESPN legal analysts in Angola Junior What is the timeline for when this becomes a legal process involving the Shawn Watson? All civil right now? For civil cases, it can take months or longer. We're talking about first, their service of process which I assume and some of these cases might have already happened. We don't know for sure, then typically to sort of watch inside will answer these claims. Then you go to the point where Norman. In many cases, you might see this. In this case, Shawn Watson's lawyers will ask to have the case dismissed. We'll see how judges view that then you go in the process of different like discovery. Proceed to trying to establish the jury or or otherwise. So these things take a long time. And typically, what you might say is well, maybe it settles. Maybe it goes away pretty quickly. It was pretty clear that John Watson said he wasn't Least initially was not interested in settling this. And now that you have such a large volume, it does seem like settlement is much more unlikely than it was in the beginning of this process. So this is the kind of thing that can take a very long time, months, if not longer. And now the NFL's also doing their own investigation here, Freddie I mean 16 civil suits now filed against the Shawn Watson from different 16 different miss uses. I reserve judgment until everything you know until everything it plays out. I guess that's the one the most responsible thing to do. Now, in the court of public opinion, that never happens. I mean to Shawn Watson is already you know it is brand. His name has been Just absolute tarnished by by most people across this country and in college, folk, college and pro football fans. Personally, I reserve judgment until I judgment has been rendered. One way or another. But pretty not talked about this briefly last night. Something just doesn't smell right. Don't know. I don't know what it is said that when they heard it, 12 and a very rapid escalation to 16, and no criminal charges have been brought against the Shawn Watson yet, right? Something isn't passing the smell test, but we'll figure out what that is. Why, Once a judgment in order 16 judgements have been rendered one way or
Supreme Court to Hear Appeal of Ruling That Overturned Boston Marathon Bomber's Death Sentence
"Radio boston. I'm donna deering and we start today with another major development in the country's largest drug lab scandal suffolk. County district attorney. Rachel rollins says that her office could vacate up to tens of thousands more criminal convictions. That were based on drug evidence tested at the now closed hinton lab. Wbu our senior correspondent. Deborah becker is reporting on the story. Deb joins us now dead. Welcome back to radio boston. Thanks for having me so deb. D. rollins is proposing to vacate any drug convictions based on results. From the hinton lab from may two thousand three to august two thousand twelve why that nine year time window will. That was the time period when two chemists worked at the hinton lab at the same time. Any dukan and sony ferrick you may remember. Both women were convicted on charges of tampering. With the drug evidence they were supposed to be testing fair conviction though stemmed from her work at the state lab in amherst but both women worked at the hinton lab. At one time. Eric worked there before she went to amherst. Rollin says what's needed is a more thorough review of all the drugs certifications that came from the hinton lab wild. Both women were working there. She calls the drug lab scandal. Systemic misconduct and a catastrophic failure of management that she says needs a complete review so all the testing done at that lab during that time should be looked at and we should point out that after both chemists were convicted tens of thousands of criminal drug convict. Convictions were dismissed because of their misconduct. We're talking about more. Give us a sense of scale here. Deb how many people might this effect will will. There's no precise number but rollins office says is that the hinton lab certified almost eighty three thousand drug samples for evidence during that time and that was in suffolk county and the massachusetts supreme judicial court which has reviewed various challenges and calls for a way to deal with all of the cases in both labs has vacated thousands of convictions based on the testing and hidden lab alone about eight thousand from hinton so the remaining seventy four thousand drug certifications that rollins talking about from suffolk county. She says her office is going to review all of those and they could be part of what she says is a global resolution to deal with these cases once and for all and thousands more convictions could be erased. But there's no exact number because one drug certification could have several drug certifications could have been done for one case so. The exact number is unclear. Got it got it. But it's it's a lot to review. So how does it work are they. Are they essentially starting deb with the assumption that all the convictions must be vacated and then working backward from there as they review the cases. How are they gonna do this well. She says she's going to convene robin says. She's going to convene a summit next month with the defense bar to start this review look at every affected case all the drugs certifications and determine next steps and she says any relief in what she's calling her hinton lab initiative is only for controlled substances convictions. And if someone was charged with something else along with drug use or possession or whatever the drug charges may have been those charges withstand this would only be drug charges in a particular case and then after that they would look at expunging records. If need be it would be a very lengthy complicated process. So our defense attorneys reacting to this well The aclu the american civil liberties union of massachusetts which was the agency really primarily involved in fighting with the s sjc to try to get some sort of resolution for many of these cases that were based on evidence tested at the hinton lab and at the amherst lab. It says it is. It's pleased that rollins has done. This here is matt siegel whose legal counsel for the aclu of massachusetts certainly would our preference and the preference of the public defenders are law firm partners for all of these cases have been dismissed when we first started calling for that step in twenty twelve. There's a saying about the arch of justice and At this point were very glad that seems to be bending in the right direction. I think as referring there to the you know the arc of the moral universals long but it bends toward justice but regardless also the State criminal defender agency. The committee for public counsel services released a statement after They heard about rachel rollins initiative the hidden lab and it also said that. It's pleased that this is happening. And it hopes that other district attorneys will do the same. So will they deb. Do you think we'll other. Da's follow suit. And i guess. I'm wondering if somehow this forces their hands if they have to. Now i don't think anyone necessarily

We start every episode with what we call the warm up here on the show. You know it well. Can you please tell everyone listening. Who you are where you live and what this cool job is that you have absolutely so. My name is victoria. See geese. I was warning raised in toronto ontario canada. So many big city girl. Right over here. I always have it in always will be right now. I live in ottawa ontario. Canada are lovely beautiful finalists nation's capital just about two years ago. I moved here. So i've been living here since the spring of two thousand and nineteen non small town but definitely not as huge overbearing as toronto. So i kind of went to paul it a midsize city not too big not too saul. Guess right. I am proud alumnus of university of toronto where i received my honors bachelor of arts degree in english history and filming two thousand eleven and also proud alumnus of the university of windsor in windsor ontario. Where i received my juris doctor law degree out winds rely and i am aware i was called to the ontario bar in two thousand sixteen. And i've been working as a lawyer ever since right now. I am proudly working in the advertising and products regulatory group at dowling wwl g. canada l. key a large multinational law firm. We have offices really all across the world. And i am currently working out of the office here in ottawa ontario canada. I started here almost two years ago with the fabulous team in ottawa My focus is primarily on regulatory compliance for food and beverage products working with really large worldwide food and beverage companies on which. I'm sure we'll absolutely dive into at my work. Also touches on regulatory compliance were a lot of other consumer products that includes cosmetics so like now premium shampoo conditioner Not health products and other general consumer products which to range from textiles clothing costume veterans bang jewelry electronics toys. Meg devices toothbrushes everything. Honestly you name it and it's probably probably regulated and there are probably rules around its marketing and advertising saying and my group where the people that do that kind of stuff and gas there are in fact warriors their lives to doing this myself included. It's so interesting because when you first post it and you said. I'm a food lawyer in my mind. I'm like okay. She goes to court in defense of like broccoli and bucatini goes like defense these foods. I don't know what against but that's the cartoon image. I had in my mind which i realize is not correct. Don't worry you break down a little bit more. I know you just kind of explained top level but give us a scenario of an example of what you're doing who are you defending. Who are your clients. And who are you kind of. I always imagined layers are fighting which i know is all of them. But who are you fighting for. And who are you fighting against louis. So it's actually really interesting. You should say that my job is not a job on. And i actually. I listened to the first on the job series episode. This season. I know you will. You will be talking to somebody. Who i think is really like a trial attorney. Kind of like getting really into the weeds there. We don't go to court. At least we hope never talk award for it Really for us it's side. It's a matter of ensuring regulatory compliance for all of these companies. And they're so. Let me give you an example. A client who is like a big. Let's say like snack. Company will send us a proposed labelled. Let's say it's a label for. They want to release like a brand new chocolate chip cookie on the market. They'll send us a label and they'll say this is our label maka. Let us know what it is that the authority problems with It like what we need to do in order to be playing that sort of thing so essentially the the. What's your walking in the grocery store you pass by a a basic. Is you picked up the box. You look at the label at some point in time in all likelihood somebody whether it's regulatory lawyer or a regulatory compliance works in regulatory compliance has read out late all and either told a food and beverage company that they have to change it or die. There's a certain risk with making a certain statement on a label. Anything and everything that is on that particular food label probably has a roll around it especially here in canada. Things are quite highly regulated. A so firewall wall. Send us a copy of a label. We need to review it for compliance. And i mean we nice. Every single thing about these product labels down to like interest tax table down to be ingredient. This what are the ingredients. Are you allowed to have these ingredients in the product. And if there's a particular ingredient that has that's not allowed to be in a product up to a certain level. Are they excessive this level. Where are they putting their nets. T. statement so those of insect ninety liters or ten grams or one and a half ounce how does it look on the label of the way that it looks on a food. Label has eroded Why where is there. Ingredients statement whereas the nutrition All of these matters. And that is literally what i do. I will get us label for a grand products. And i will have to date and pick it apart and what's hostage is grocery shopping fun for you. Are you like. I'm at work now hilarious. I love loud grocery shopping. I mean i. I could spend hours hours out of Link so an. And i mean like everywhere my my husband and i went to italy. Who read before. I started working at outline so this would have been in two thousand nineteen. He wanted to go to like about that again and he wanted to go to like museums and i just bar square walking around understanding like international food labels like before i started this job like what are what are they intricacies of these food labels and how big difference when i started especially when i started working on my husband we hated rivers resolving with because i would i would just spend hours in the grocery store just like labels and looking at new products and it's interesting though because it kind of ends up being pretty good opportunity to kind of understand where different companies are going in terms of food so you know what are the new and emerging products. That are coming out dr getting a lot of traction on and we talked to a lot of guests on i think. Is it star. Starlight us tonight issue now. She's amazing. I love all representatives and that a lot of people ask questions on about like. Oh what does it mean what is cheeto mean or what is like up spam based food or you know what is all of this stuff about like oatmeal oatmeal mill. What almond milk and all this other kind of milk all that stuff. I like to kind of keep my eye on those kinds of products because the claims that they're making for products like by In canada especially are are all regulated.

The Texans is something's that back away. But you know this pretty. They're gonna want these issues resolved. It was NFL investigate. And that could take a long time. Antonio Brown's has still not been resolved since last off season. So there's so much out there, Freddy about which direction it could go. And right now, nobody has any idea when I say the word timing regarding all of this. What do you say? Bad, bad timing for everybody all around bad for the Texans when they want to maximize what they can get from Watson. I've been saying they should pick the Jets and the Dolphins 2nd 3rd in the first round against each other. I have seized rivals and get the maximum deal. You know their stories about Carolina willing toe. Sacrifice the farm to get into the problem with the Panthers. There's eight overall pick, and there's no guarantee of getting a franchise quarterback that general measure necessary a likes. And so there's other reports. He wants to go to Denver. I don't know why. And then San Francisco. I can't understand wanting to play for Palestinian, but they got Jimmy Garoppolo. For while there was talk of Washington, But Washington has solved this problem, at least with free agents. So This to me is not good for watching and it's not good for the Texans.
Riot Games Loses Alienware as LoL Partner, Denies Allegations Towards CEO
"So we need to talk about Ride game CEO and the allegations against him on the dreams and the sports minute from E Sports Network have to say my last two weeks in the show. Certainly haven't been overly wage doesn't and today is no different. Here's the background on January 7th. Former Ride Games employees Sharon O'donnell filed a lawsuit against her former boss right game CEO Nicola rent in that lawsuit O'Donnell alleged that Lorenz had created a hostile work environment and had fired her after she denied his sexual advances among other issues that lawsuit is still ongoing but this week sought a big piece of news around it. The first was Alienware a major partner of the Legends Esports cutting its deal with Riot games short. According to Jacob Wolfe now at. E sports that deal was set to continue through January 8th 2022, but Alienware wanted to terminated ten months early wolf also has reported that ride games image impacted by allegations like the ones with the rent as well as the ongoing discrimination lawsuit home. And the neon controversy of the last summer played an important part in Alien, we're leaving the deal early right games is still in that lawsuit with many former female employees around sex discrimination in the workplace is an issue that came to light with the Kotaku article from 2018 Ride Games is currently focusing legal efforts in that case on pushing the lawsuit to arbitration the neon controversy centered around right about accepting a sponsorship from a new city in Saudi Arabia at faced immediate backlash from fans casters and parts of the community do to Saudi Arabia's poor record on human rights in a variety of different areas.

"Hi I'm Anthony. Vernon managing partner Vernal law where our team focuses on intellectual property in Advertising Law? So we're starting at the beginning of Patent Law for this series that matches up at the Faq's on our website. Let's start at the beginning because it's very good place to start. What is a patent well? A patent is granted protection for an invention. I want you to think about a patent as a contract right. The government give you a grant to protect your invention. You have to tell the government effectively the public. What your invention. It's that grant by the US patent and Trademark Office depending on the type of patent. That's granted could last between fifteen and twenty years. Not Understand that this doesn't allow you to sell your product. You're always allowed to sell your product. Even if you don't WanNa get a pat on it you can sell it. What the patent grants you is the ability to stop others for copying your The invention in your patent from selling the invention in your hat. That's the key with patent law. It's a fifteen to twenty year monopoly. On what's described in the patent. Now we have three types of patents here in the United States utility patents. A utility patent covers anyone who invents a new and useful process a new unuseful article of manufacture a newer useful Scene or composition of matter. Also anything that improves upon any of that will also qualify as a utility patent. We always say build a better mousetrap. Well that's what a utility patent is. Also there are design patents now in other countries we might have other definitions for that. But in the United States a design patent includes original new an ornamental design for a manufactured product. That's the key. It's just design. Also the third type of pattern that you can receive our plant patents. That's right if you're a DNA engineer. Yeah I know there aren't a lot of out there but if you're engineering DNA and you create a new plant or you cross read you cross a hybrid plance. Well that'll be a new plant production. Discover invention of a new kind of plant capable of reproduction. You'll get a plant patent. So that's the basic overview of what a patent is again. I'm Anthony Vernon managing partner. Verna law you can find us at vernal dot com and I'll see you for the next part of our Faq.

"And fifty five episodes of the lawn business podcast right here. You already knew that Melissa. From Washington's crossing Pennsylvania asked me to do a little comparison about copyright and Trademark Law. So okay let's take this right back to the beginning a little basic but that's okay not everybody understands. Ip Law Copyright Law Traditionally tax works of art so books magazines newspapers we call those literary works and in Modern Times. We shoved computer programs into literary works. Because you write code somehow like you write a book. At least. That's the fiction. Beat we provide trademark. Law is all about branding. So there's GonNa be a product goods were services and there has to be something related to that slogan the name of the brand the name of the business. Advertising slogans sounds maybe the The distinctive shape of the products colors tastes touch motions. All of those could be trademarks. But it's about the relationship between the brand however we want to define the brand and the product now. Copyright law does require some kind of registration in order to be enforceable. Trademark Law may not require registration but Federal Trademark Law. Certainly does require registration. Otherwise you have a common law paperbark. There's no research to undo it. There's no due diligence done do it. So it's there and you will make the claim on the trademark. If you walk into court but you will not be able to receive damages under Federal Trademark Law. You might be able to trick the LANHAM act into having what we call a famous trademark and therefore there are some other rights in there but again. It's very very tricky. Copyright Law lasts for seventy years after the life of an author or for one hundred twenty years if a corporation owns the tree of the Copyright Trademark Law has a fought after registration has a five or six year requirement for filing and is renewable every ten years until the company actually stops using the trademark. The both our business assets and both act very differently so I hope this little reminder helps you understand. Copyright Law traditionally art trademark traditionally brands. And that's really the big difference.

"Several years ago I had a client who Well did something that you shouldn't do once. The company went into bankruptcy number one. The trademark was not actually listed on the set of assets that the company hat all registered trademarks should be on this set of assets wants a company goes into bankruptcy whenever chapter is being filed number. Two once that company went into bankruptcy the trademarks were transferred to the wives of the business owners. Are we call that a fraudulent transfer because the wives aren't actually running the business also number three? There was an agreement. One of the creditors of the company had a the ability to take the assets of any particular part of the company. And of course sell it in order to get money back so therefore at the end of the bankruptcy none of the debt was discharged. And I'm coming from the other end looking at it as well. What can what can happen if somebody senior to that particular company comes around in Trademark? Use An calls. It trademark infringement. Which is exactly what happened in. Today's tough times for economic activity. We need to keep this in mind. Trademarks aren't specifically mentioned in the bankruptcy code and therefore there are some special. They work differently than other types of intellectual property but we do need to remember their assets of a company so registered trademark need to be listed on the asset sheet when a company files bankruptcy and two if those trademarks are subject to any other agreement that the company has there can be treated with the same type of of property rights that any creditor would have for any other piece of property in that particular business trademarks are treated special when there's a license agreement and that that's a topic for another time apart from that their assets of the business treat them like they're the assets of the business and therefore if your company goes into bankruptcy during this particularly tough five they can be adjudicated properly just like every other acid business. I'm Anthony Bernard managing partner burn law. We'll be focused on IP and advertising lawsuit. Chances are you already knew that by clicking on this video. Thanks very much and I'll speak to you soon..
"I've it's not like risk but it's you know short of a different level. I but your micro interactions in the same people. That same ticket taker every day. You get to know him or her. You get to know all of the same people that we recognize the same faces. You're part of a community a part of something bigger and that's difficult to do and difficult to remember when you don't leave your house right But even as even as a business owner I have those routines Tuesday morning group the Thursday morning group and like right now my Tuesday morning group isn't meeting and nobody in that particular group seems to want to. I shouldn't say nobody but but very few people Want to make that group into a virtual videoconference group. So that one's taking taking time off but you know that was a routine that I have and and that routine is missing. Now Yeah and we have to find out our new routines So you've got your regular Noah. Most of our networking has done a person who was working as but as you think about opportunities and change and it's going on right now and where we're GONNA come out. I mean this could potentially be very reminiscent very similar to the to what happened. Two Thousand Eight two thousand nine. We don't know a lot of uncertainty. The taking the time to implement a new routine you can network in person but reaching out to the People. Either you work with or used to work with to keep up these relationships that is going to put you light years ahead of anybody else as things come back to normal because the relationships that you have are the ones who are going to bring you business if you're a business owner. They're the ones who are going to get you a new job if you're looking for a new job and so maintaining and just wellness checks on all of these people just to say. Hey I'm still here. You're still here. Is Everything going on Is just a good way for you to stay front and center? It's a great way to to add into that routine D- do you do. We like the Like the way. A lot of people having virtual Happy hour video conferencing happy hour. You know I look. I one of my favorite hobbies judge people. I'm asking you to judge. I think it is but it's look it's people seem to be enjoying right and if you could get a good group of four people in your checking in. You're having a cocktail why not. I mean it's it's great. It's a good way to check in with people. It's it's not gonNA fully replaced the the in person kind a happy hour interaction stuff But if it's a more relaxed way for you to check in with other people and get your social fix then I say I say go for it for for the for the business owner. Who's worried about cash flow and Yeah I'll I'll certainly say that I've noticed a couple claims turtle and I mean I have a bit of a carrot and stick situation because I can say well you've got a deadline and and you lose intellectual property if you're deadline's not not particularly met Or at least use a filing fee What what you know. So I've got that carrot and stick but not every business owner has that's for this business owners worrying about cash flow and worrying about the business. How how are you? How are you helping them? Focus on on the fact that. Hey they're still here. They're business can still continue and gathered about cash flow. But that part's temporary. It's Yeah and it's a heavy question because everybody's got a different. It's a different situation Depending on your level of cash flow needs The conversation kind of changes But what I would say to someone who doesn't have new business coming in. This is a lot of opportunity if you don't have work right now is create work If work isn't filling your day you can find things to do. And so we all get into business for a certain reason. Whatever the reason is is completely. I got into coaching. Because I like to help people. It sounds cheesy. But that's the way that it is and and you do it. When easy answers are acceptable here? They're acceptable and so what I'm doing. Now my focus is yeah. I've got my clients with my clients. Virtually and everything else but this is an opportunity for me to help people and so while while jobs are changing functions of changing and everything is changing. When you keep your focus on your why you got into business you can then find additional things to do. It goes back to find value and thinking hard about. What are you doing to provide value outside of that? There's all these administrative things that you've you've wanted to do you know how much can you do to say that you know? When was the last time you have data website? Is the language up to date on your website Have you filed your taxes is? This is a good time to just keep busy while we're waiting to see what everything else is happening And then you start to think about that reason. Ugandan to doing whatever it is that you're doing. And how can you pivot in the short term? So if you are a a writer and nobody's hiring you to do writing. Where else can you right? And what else can? Maybe you can focus on writing a book and you write some blog posts for somebody else. Can you edit Communications for people who are trying to reach out to clients and new communications swap. There are all kinds of different ways. the challenges and the difficult part and the thing that we don't like that it's hard and that short. That's that's nobody likes to do hard. Thanks and it's it's as blunt as I can be That's that's what sucks about. This is that we have to figure out difficult ways to pivot and some of the things maybe a little a shot to the EGO But we have to find the work and there is work out there. We just have to look for it and we can't be too proud to do it. And when things get back to normal this goes into our quiver of things that we've learned and things that we can draw on from experience that we can showcase off to to clients later one of the One of the items and I've done now I've I've been. I've been busy because I've litigated. So I have had I have had work to do but one of the things that I've done on on my off time is I went into the back end of my website because there are a couple. I won't say errors but but mistakes that SEO calculations don't seem to search engine optimization calculations don't seem to like and I went into the back end and I just started fixing them and I was kind of surprised how quickly some of my keyboard ranking went up after I fixed those errors so what. I was one of the things that I started to do when I was like well. I don't feel like moving from one big project to the next so but instead of taking two hours to do nothing what can I do to be productive style So I started working on on the back end of my website. And that's a perfect example. I mean when we think about whatever types of business we do. Our circles are pretty small because we operate in the same circles all the time. So what we're doing these normal little circles you know whatever networking groups do in front of the same people. We've got the types of clients and we go around circle circle circle same communities commuting route. We've got our community friends. Everyone's we've got our little little bubbles right an excellent time to pop that bubble and changing your SEO and trying to get in front of New People in different ways. That's you know this is a perfect time to do something like that. And when you're looking and you have another two hour block if you WanNa fix the SEO my website. I would love you should do that. There's a side Gig I just got to one. I don't know that I'm that good. But that is one of the things that I've that that I I've been working on That was one of my twenty twenty goals. Anyway it might. Website has has gone straight up in the last In the last few months but But yeah that was one of the things and there's one other really tedious task that I haven't done on the website that I need to do. So the more board we get these things become. It's odd and when we have the most time in the world we don't want to do the boring thanks. We just want to sit in front of the TV. And that's why I never gets done. I'm not going to disagree with that statement. A bizarre thing isn't it but well no but but even from a regular work standpoint I had yesterday. I just filed a response to a motion The opposing counsel in this one case filed a motion asking the court to vacate the judgment. I'll let you guess which one of us one in which one of us lost on the judgment and the giants fan. I don't think he's a giant but but basically the first off. His first problem was that the court yelled at him for not serving on me properly Or at least not telling the court that he served it on me properly so so he even made a second mistake after after his loss and I'm sitting there and I'm looking at this and and I'm like this is such a simple response to put together and I mean it'll take time to do but from a from a mental standpoint. It really wasn't all that difficult and I just kept staring at it and staring at it and staring at it and I finally got it in But yeah I mean it wasn't the work it was billable. It was billable hours worked. But it wasn't the most It wasn't wasn't the most difficult thing I had to do. And I just kept putting it off and You know I was doing other actually much more difficult work instead of that right. And it's it's odd that we could procrastinate the things that we're always thinking about it so it's cloud over our head that we know we have to do and we just don't want to do it And then we'll board on other things to do we. Just don't WanNa get up off our butts and do it anyway but that goes back to the the conversation routine and everything else you know saying I have to work for this. Set Our thing done and then you go away and you do whatever you want to come back. Maybe it's to set hours whatever. It is Setting your time aside and having that routine will help you get through all those those little things that you want to get done speaking speaking of routine how about how we dress as we're not now working at home it is is that as a an important part of the routine. It depends on who you talk. You're talking to the wrong person. I like. You know me know that I wear you know because I work from home a lot and if I'm not meeting a client and I don't have to wear a suit. I will literally put on a bathing suit and a button-down shirt because it's comfortable. I like to think I'm living in Hawaii but I'm not and there is a balance. I think there are some people who do really really well with the routine of getting ready in the morning getting prepared putting a suit on or were close or whatever it is that you WANNA do And then there are others who want to be comfortable as they're doing their work. I think it depends on the type of work that you have to do I do think getting dressed put you in a certain type of professional mindset But that's GonNa be that's GonNa be bespoke to you and what you need to accomplish that day if you find that you're not being productive for a few days and that's because you're in your Pajama Pants. And everything else. Maybe do need a shock to go in Take a nice big shower. Do your hair do everything Put on your your full work year and set yourself up to do some productive work. Then that's that that may help some of your your mindset in your productivity for sure Jim Let me Let me thank you here. And and end on the and and on any wrap-up advice that you might have for everybody who's now working at home who is feeling that change My father used to always say flexibility is our greatest strength so we are adaptable people And you know there are problems in their circumstances and we could fix problems but circumstances we have to respond to and there's a lot of what we're dealing with this just circumstance that we have to respond to so when we think about the stress of what we're dealing with and everything else Know that a lot of it we we really can't solve and we have to focus on on the hand that's in front of us right now. And how are we looking at the chips that are on the table? And what are the best next steps that we can do day to day and at the end of this? Hopefully we will have a lot of good lessons that we can draw on for for future business..
"Welcome to the law and business. Podcast the least creatively named podcast out there in podcast land with me. Jim Fraleigh in just fantastic. I love being on such a creatively titled Show. Thank you very much and give your from from bellwether where you do a lot of business and executive coaching. Yeah we do We work a lot with Senior executives teams and organizations and then we work a lot with with small businesses on their strategic direction. And figuring out what it is that they want to do to to get to the next level. Excellent will thank you for for for being on an end for all of you out there who have forgotten what podcast you're listening to. I'm Anthony Vernon managing partner VERNA law and so so JEB. A lot of businesses of course are adjusting to the current new normal. I hesitate a little bit to call it anything more than the current new normal. Because I think we'll get back to normal at some point even if it's in three or four months. I think we'll get back to normal. But maybe that's my positive thinking well active. Let's true as well. It's GonNa be interesting to see what that normal actually is. That's true as well so so from a coaching standpoint. What are some of the some of the steps? What are some of the hot button items? That that your your clients are coming to you about right now. A lot of the small business owners especially the ones who are sole proprietors They're they're probably freaking out in panicking right incredibly For good reason right Proprietors can't file for unemployment Mo- sole proprietors This is their sole income for their family And business has just dried up overnight for a lot of other than other businesses are completely overwhelmed with the type of work. So it's really dependent on the type of business that you're in and where you're shaking out on it So cash flow is obviously one of the big challenges that that most of them are are focused on of course But the other one that they're really interested in and the one that I like to talk to most of my clients bow is remaining relevant. And it's a lot of the one of the big tokens of advice. I give to my clients while you may not have revenue coming in. There is still an opportunity to not be forgotten from a business perspective so we WanNa make sure that you'll people's attention is everywhere right now And how do you put your service and Product Front and Center It's probably just noise at this point. So how do you do it and you have to do it in a selfless way where you're not trying to sell something we speak aren't really buying anything? So how are you positioning your business to provide value for your clients So that you are remembered when these things do get back to normal. It's it's a little reminiscent of the advertising Mantra of needing to you know needing to advertise in good times is important. Well at meeting advertise in bad times is twice as that's right. That's right and look if if I'm buying your product I have so many things going across my desk right now. I'm not paying attention to pitch and so advertising it and and being specific and intentional in the way that you're communicating your value. You're not selling people right now but your advertising and showcasing your value and there's a bit of nuance in how you do that So so I mean. I'm inundated with emails all the time about people trying to give me a discount. I'll tell you this and I I'm not I'm not interested in what you're selling right now But we have to create the at work and showcase value for people So that they're going to be calling you when when the revenue the till's open up a little bit later. Yeah I mean I feel as if the two emails I'm currently being inundated with as a as a consumer are well. Here's how our company is Is Adjusting to the Kobe. Nineteen a pandemic way for the most part. I don't actually care about how your company is adjusting. Because I'm kind of assuming well you told your employees to go home and work from home and they're probably employees that you know if you're a bigger company employees you can't have ideally we have business continuity processes in place so that everybody should be working riding service and to if you're if you're a product that I like we'll chances are. I'm if I'm able to order you. Well that hasn't changed that much either and and hopefully it comes to me in well. There are so many people in between when I bought it and my house. That what you've done it your places and all that doesn't matter all that much when it gets to our house so I'm I'm not. Yeah a lot of these these emails about right now Feel IRRELEVANT YEAH. There are and and you said it perfectly. You're they're already using it or you know you're gonNA You know you're GONNA use it in the future like the the relationships already there and so you've got it so if you're trying to build business right now with new people trying to get someone to focus on you to try and build up new businesses as the pine sky. It's very difficult thing to do. Sure let me Let me analogize this with myself. Because I do that way. Too often but He did a video blog About the fact that the intellectual property system is open so my messaging from the very beginning has been hi. We're open because the courts while you might not be able to walk into a court if your client of ours your deadlines all apply and whether that court is a Federal District Court or others in the patent and trademark office or whether your application is in the patent trademark office Everybody's working remotely and our system is still running so you can't really turtle and hide right now if you're one of our clients for example that's kind of been my steady message messaging to them and it's an important message to give because you've got you know we're so focused on isolating and our houses and our particular situation and You Know How am I going to work from home? I've got kids running around the House and I've got you know deliverables to give to everything and we're so focused on us. There is a big picture and when you take a step back from a macro perspective yet. The economy is slowing down but lots of businesses are still going on. Lots of people are still working So there are still deadlines. There are still things that need to get done and things that will get on. The world is going on We just need to look past. Our twitter feeds in order to see that I appreciate the knock at twitter right there on facebook man. It's going to be even a wild wild. The small business is is hunkering down his dealing with kids at home What are some of the? What are some of the thoughts and ideas to keep that business not just front of mine in in in in their clients and customers spent but how to keep that rolling how to keep the how to keep the business owners focus rolling? Yes it's This is new for a lot of people to be working from home and so Just thinking back to my experience when I first started working from a few years ago One of my biggest challenges wasn't necessarily productivity. Wasn't really you know. I'm not a T. V. Person or anything could focus on my work. My challenge was lack of social interaction. Okay Which is a big challenge for everybody right now because we are So while we need you. Work gives us a lot of things. Yes it gives us a paycheck. Work gives us a sense of purpose. It gives us these micro interactions when we're community into the office. We talked to people in the kitchen or we have our in person meanings. It gives us a time. Management and routine so work really provides a lot of different things that we need to re incorporate into our lives at home and the most important of those in my opinion is social micro and our actions so if you have the ability to go out for a walk if you have the ability to say hi to a few neighbors keep pretend feet whatever you have to do We need to remember that. Were part of something bigger and we can't just do that. The Rubio Screen So so the big things for for everybody is To to focus on that mental health focused on on depressions a very real thing But create that routine create the micro interactions and force yourself to get outside a little bit Just to get that type of interaction. It is funny. How many Work Friends. I made like when I first moved to to New York City From philly and my friends were at I for the most part work friends. And so just funny with you talking about the social interactions that make makes me reflect upon the fact that hey when I did work at bigger firms I had worked friends and right now I mean. Obviously my team are friends of mine It works it works in that direction. I have other people affiliated with the firm that are friends of mine but It is it still isn't quite the same because obviously I'm not running into them everyday anyway. It's not like we sit around that at at the copy machine are or or just the walking around the office or the the jokes that I had I I. I did a lot of a lot of eagles. Giants football jokes. You know when I was working at big firms so one right side to be on that equation by the way not the giants. I'm it's interesting. Most of your work friends is because most of your life is work. You Work Eight to ten twelve hours a day So that's your your forty two to sixty hours a week and on top of that. Your hour commute each way. It's another ten hours and you're looking at like fifty to ninety hours a week That you have to fill up and so that's where you're spending. Most of your time is where you're meeting most of the people we've just put everybody at home you've gained effectively. If don't know what everyone's commute is but if you work commute to the city let's say it's an hour door to door You've just gained two hours in your day that you have to fill up and the question is how are you going to fill? It are filling it with work. Or are you filling it with what you need personally to get through your day to make yourself more productive? Is it a walk with you? Know just a half hour walk for social interaction or whatever. It is the kind of check out. My sister in law used to Travel from here in Westchester. All the way down to lower Manhattan. So that that was multiple train rides in a couple of times. I would run into her going home. 'cause I was never getting the five fifty eight train into New York City though the way she yet now but there will be times when I ran into her going home and I would wind up saying hi to her commute. Fred's like like it was a fascinating phenomenon that I had never had before was the commute friend. No look at you know the five fifty a train Or any of the early transit I take in the morning For my stop. Is these people their pockets of people. I know some people get on in the scarsdale train station and they come with A. I don't know what game they play. But they set up a board among the four of them and they play these this board game..
"So that add a little closer in the newspaper to the front page or instead of advertising in daytime. Tv Nape there is an opening in the today. Show late night. You know that kind of thing So there's little little benefits to actually keeping your advertising going. There's definitely not as much clutter going on right now so you can have a great opportunity to cut through all the clutter not too many. The commercial breaks little shorter So it's a great way to stay top of mind and on the flip side if you cut your advertising during a time like this and we are probably looking at reopening businesses again You know come maybe maybe as early as end of April You're GONNA have all that time lapse for people. Just forget about you when they are in the market for your product or service. You're going to have to start from scratch all over again. Are You finding those upgrades for for your particular clients is? Are there any in mind that that that you have with those upgrades with spy? Even right now spending the same amount that they were. I'm doing that right now. For All of my clients still taking full advantage of that. Because you know it's the way I look at it really is. It's a win win for everyone. Involved the media outlet is thrilled that they have a loyal customer. That is in a position where they don't have to cancel right now And a lot of their advertisers are canceling and then the client thrilled because hey they get to keep advertising but now they get to pay the same price and get better placement. So we're definitely doing that right now. for our hospital client and our lending client Getting them moved up a little bit closer newspapers in front page Got Just recently got one of our clients on page two so that was really nice and then you know also when it comes to like TV advertising You start to notice that a lot of the prime time news shows they have some openings now and this is a really weird situation in general this year because this was supposed to be a very bad time to advertise on TV because it's a political year right so twenty twenty noon advanced going into the stat. We'd be seeing a ton of preemption 's our spots probably wouldn't air because they buy out all the inventory and It's makes it very challenging for small businesses to find available airtime but now political advertising's on hold we haven't seen nearly as much of that if any For now and then we've had a lot of cancellations from advertisers. That don't really want to commit because it's uncertain as to what's going to happen when they're going to reopen so now we're seeing open inventory and this is a great opportunity. I mean the TV ratings are like increasing crazy. Everyone's glued to their screens every day. There's a new update. Everyone wants to know what's happening. So when they're taking a break from net flicks or working from home. They're checking out the news and there are actually Spots available in newscasts to advertise so those little opportunities are really working out. Really well for us right now I find I find that I mean it is logical. It makes perfect sense. I still find that to be absolutely amazing that. What kind of availability? There is right now for the advertiser. Yeah and I mean really. This is unheard of right now in twenty twenty with an election year but These are very unpredictable. Odd Weird Times what are you? What are you finding like? You just said you got you. Were able to claim looped onto page to assuming obviously in a in a printed newspaper. I would assume that that there's been a. I mean maybe right now there. There's some Eyeballs going back to it but I would assume that print feels dead right now or again. Is that that s a space where you can find bargains to get an for for eyeballs full. So here's the thing on the free publications the free newspapers that you see on the way into the subway or something like Fat George. Pick one up in the morning Those are actually on hold right now they they are not printing them anymore because of germs People don't WanNa touch in it just involves on the production side and on the consumer side. It's a little risky right now. So with these newspapers have done. Is they've adjusted by going into a digital mode so they still publish them. But they're now in a digital version. C can go and look online and he gets the only latest headlines However with the publications that are paid subscriptions those are actually still getting mailed out to the individuals homes so those businesses are still thriving. And it's not as risky because it's not touching as many aunts and also The free ones that you get on the subway subway ridership is way down. So yeah but the the printed ones that are sent to homes. Those are still doing well in general In general even aside from this whole pan down this whole pandemic is the newspaper. Industry is actually surprisingly still doing fairly. Well it is still a viable place to advertise depending on the type of industry. Your and your target audience. It does tend to skew older so If we're trying to reach baby boomers and up Newspapers can actually be still a good viable place to place advertising But younger people as you see like Gen X. Millennials Gen Z. They're all on screens all the time. So it really just depends on. Who you're advertiser is but It's still out there. It's still alive and it's still kicking is there With with this particular time right now are as the advertisers can continue to advertise those. That are I knew said some industries are looking Strong right now for the advertising but are there. Are there demographics that are stronger than others? Right now We've seen pretty much an increase across the board in terms of TV With all the different demographics so like every that we've seen definitely a higher increase in TV ratings For adults thirty five and up But we have seen a little bit of an uptick to with eighteen plus So I think really the younger generations are really going more towards social and digital to get their news sure but we are definitely still seeing like a major increase in adults thirty five plus online or on TV. Because everybody was supposed to be going to Netflix by now and cutting the court. I think they're doing both. Actually I think I agree with you completely on that. Sorry Oh no no no. I think I think they're doing In terms of viewing habits. I think they're doing both at this time. I think there's a lot of everyone's days or comprised of news and entertainment But you can. Even you know we we do. We can reach the younger generations to now with What we call over the top advertising which is streaming TV. Be Like your who lose of the world and that Kinda stuff So that's another way to try to reach the younger demographics with TV advertising. I mean I never really thought the TV would would completely go away mainly because when you take your cable. Subscription cable subscription is oh. I don't know one hundred hundred fifty dollars a month. You still have to pay for Internet. So you're Internet's going to be at least fifty dollars a month and then if you start adding five subscriptions onto that well you're not really saving. You're not really saving money. Exactly the same can cherry pick selection of what you wanted but at the same rate right because if everything goes all a cart. Yeah we're the savings right exactly. Yeah yeah basically You know it's it's a great. It's nice to have all these options but the cable companies are actually adapting fairly well to all of this They now have their own applications on phones where you can live stream anything from wherever on your mobile device your IPAD so You know everything's all included in that too so even still like broadcasts people who've just never had cable. They've never wanted it out. Broadcast is essentially free over the air regional antenna so Broadcast is still. That's available through like Hulu and other streaming platforms too. So you know. We haven't really seen an with all the new content out there too. Haven't really seen any kind of a dip in TV. I think what the adaptions that these companies are making. I think everything is just getting better. And now they're telling us in an hour being forced to stay home and watch television you know. Don't stay home at work in your business. Stay home and watch TV. Just go. Watch more television. Now's a great time to catch up on all that binge-watching Eli which then of course means more eyeballs site your appreciative of that top lately. We've actually seen like even web track web. Traffic in general has been going up to. I mean I think people really want to stay in the know. What's the latest like when they're going back to work and what's happening outside now like it's all such a big question mark that we're all glued to screens constantly? But which means that. If if you're looking to advertise you need to be advertising on a on a new site at the very needs to be advertising where your customer is so like for example if you are trying to reach like agenda demographic then Maybe we would want to reach them through like a streaming TV channel and we can actually play or TV commercial for them in between breaks of the show that they're watching just hypothetically but You know then there's also like news clips online that we can play a video pre roll ad that will show. It's like fifteen second ad for five seconds that can show before the news clip lays right Or if there's somebody that's just glued to their TV and it's They fall within the demographic than we can just advertise the show. So there's depending on who you're trying to reach. There's definitely way we can reach them. Especially during this time with a video ad let me let me Since believe it or not we are. We are beginning to hit the end. So let me ask you this. Which I didn't prepare you for is podcast advertising worth it. Yeah podcast. Advertising is pretty good at depending on. Now keep in mind that anybody can listen to your podcast from national so we would consider that more of like national advertising So it depends on your type of company. It for example if it's an e commerce company that they can ship anywhere within the United States and then that makes perfect sense But if it's like you know for an attorney whose license only in the state of New York or New Jersey let's say It might not be the most cost effective way to advertise. Sure I I I actually do. Listen to a podcast that comes out of southern New Jersey. And there's a dentist advertising's practice and I'm like like you're wasting your money. Maybe because of all the people that podcast reaches yeah I mean it depends too I think now like Geo targeting might be coming available soon for podcast so depending on the podcast format in who you buy it through. You might actually be able to Geo target. And I think that's going to become more readily available in the future. I I agree with you on. Geo Targeting I. I do see that in a couple. There's one another podcast that I listen to that. I noticed that the Ads were were radically different when I was at my parents house outside Philly as compared to the as it. I get when I downloaded it here. North of New York City so I am beginning to see that but not for not for a lot of them only for. There's only one that I can think of that does that. I think that's going to become the new normal soon but Podcast advertising is still. It's not really I wouldn't say it's like a new thing but this fairly new in the world of online advertising so We'll start to probably get into that geofencing or Geo targeting a little bit more soon. I always found that that the traditional radio.
"I'm doing well. Thank you for having me on your show. Hey not not not a problem. It's the least showy show in all of podcast world. So it's also the least creatively titled Show All podcast Villas. Well guess right to the point so innovation advertising is a what I would define as a as an advertising placement agency. How am I doing? That's correct yeah. Yeah okay. Specialize in media buying and media planning. We don't do the creative in house but we can certainly advise clients who've advertising strategy work with the creative team to make the messages best and most effective as it can possibly be but our internal specialty is negotiating meteorites and placing the media for clients determining where they should be advertising to see an investment or return on their investment writer. So in in a time like this I would assume that everybody's first instinct is to especially those who are running. Businesses is to stop their advertising. Yes there are that is usually the first thing when panic kits people always think of advertising as something that's not really a necessity depending on the type of business. You're in that actually could be true or it. Most of the time actually isn't so yes. It's a sometimes is one of the first things to get caught in a recession. How have you been seeing that over the last two to three weeks We have it just. Depends on the industry There are certain businesses that are struggling right now and there are certain businesses that are actually thriving right now Some of the clients that we work with that were seeing the had to make cuts are particularly in retail plastic surgery Salons restaurants events in particular sure And Automotive and anything in the luxury sector as well travel. But we don't work with a lot of entertainment clients but we have seen a lot of people. Shying away to from Broadway shows. They can't go to movie theaters anymore. So TV productions have been on hold so we are seeing that however There are some businesses that are actually thriving in this type of environment who we work with like healthcare providers of course lenders and particular Grocery stores accountants auto repairs. Everyone still needs to get their cars repaired and then of course technology companies like zoom. I'm sure are doing phenomenally. Well at this time you know I Speaking of of grocery stores of a couple of the podcast that I listen to or specifically from Philadelphia and one of the grocery store chains there has started advertising for employees and they are blunt to the point in this time of need we have developed a need for more people to come and work for us and I I mean I was really shocked and surprised at how quickly the messaging changed. Yeah I I mean. Messaging is one hundred percent key in this situation. If you are a business it's going to keep advertising It's very important that you tailor your message. So in this in the case you're speaking of what the grocery store they're looking for recruitment at this time that's great They definitely have to get that message out there. But there's other companies that rather than holding back on advertising. All may really need to do is ship their message so like people are. They're taking this as their living in. You know it's uncertain times so they don't WanNa make huge commitment to anything so if you are a business that has the ability to show. Some flexibility like maybe no cancellation fees or some promoted. A risk free opportunity for people so that they don't feel like they're locked in and that they're gonNA spend too much money on something and then not be able to return it or not. Be able to cancel if they need to so definitely tailoring the message at a time like this is critical. What happens when a an advertiser begins to pull back? I know you said that some are thriving. Some are not thriving right about now but the advertisers that are pulling back. I mean logically as somebody who has done advertising from from a legal standpoint of of the contracts and reviews and budgets. I would sit here and say well. If they're not message is not getting out then. It's not they're not advertising. It's not worked right There was actually a lot of benefits to continue with your advertising during a difficult time. Like Sir during a recession Essentially you have this opportunity now to have a leg up on your competition. Your competition might actually be Stopping all of their advertising. So if your front and center to your.
"That's an that's a great question Justin and as one that you'll be hit with a little bit later but you know it's always been the mantra of people I work with and certainly my mantra that As we said in a previous episode if you want to attract the attention of large distributors of you want to attract the attention of other would be licensees than I always suggest you start out by generating a track record yourself with that and saying the limited that I've learned from from this product and the company and the Founder Story to be told there's a narrative round wide this was created and the benefits of doing so and online content. Online sales will probably be as you just said you best mechanism to get started. Yeah there's a website that's already in production at it. It's not a open for the public to see at this particular point only because we are waiting for the first set of orders To come in from our manufacturers so we want to kind of time it properly not get too much head one of the advantages of course of this toy. Is that since? We're talking about children and losing teeth that it's evergreen in children are born every month and they lose teeth every month and so it's not tied to a particular holiday. It's not tied to a particular time of year. It is You know a a kind of evergreen product that's being sold Year round so we have the freedom and the option to kind of introduce the toy to the market. You know from a marketing perspective. The analytic set facebook and instagram provide. You is a gold mine terms of people reporting when they're pregnant having kids to d decades birthdays. You know how the how old they are. You know that a kid around x number of age old is GonNa start losing teeth and you can really refine your marketing and be super targeted to reach them. The NASA group will be working with the news. I think we'll be Scott. Let me what you have a one to twelve model. You mean from from one year to to twelve years old one to twelve years old. I think would be a reasonable thing but I think hey. Here's my first year tooth which still look back on and say no. I want a five year tooth. Put My too thin at his fifth year. When they're getting changed in the mountains getting form you know and as I look at the bear. Did you refuse to go? He's my different things. Come to my mind. What are the other uses other ideas you come up with with the same mechanism? Yes and they I I think there is a slew of that that can go on and it doesn't have to be for kids. I'm thinking Valentine's Day. What is it that you can cleverly do Valentine's with a heart and all that kind of stuff that you're thinking about? How would that work? And what can you put into it? There's a whole bunch of yes there are there are other uses which actually goes back to our previous episode and talking about you know if you want to be a license. Or what are some of those thoughts that you had in there as well? Scott let me let me ask you this. If if a company like this came to you and said they they're looking for vc because they need to fund the purchase orders that are coming in. They've got this grady. Obviously there's a little market traction because of that What are some of the questions that you're asking them in order to help them set up properly? In order to keep growing? The real question is become uses of capital so I would want them because obviously when you raise more money. There's a dilution effect to the current owners. So you really want to think about what is the amount of capital you need to get to the next stage? And and what are those uses going to be at this point? I think it's just was saying is going to be a lot of marketing and sort of sales channels to look at that. You're going to have to build out probably your sales team and look at your different Sort of online apps and things like that where people can sell product and and that would be where you'd want most efficiently work with and and frankly you know until you have some decent traction in the market you're going to get diluted a little bit more but you're going to certainly be able to raise money and and be able to push this to market pretty easily. I would think go ahead Justin. You raise a very good point. I think we touched upon this in the last two episodes which is the need for business planning to understand what to find success Any business young or old has limited has resources that have termination date the not properly used as a startup will who you're working with. They have limited resources with those resources with the.

"So we haven't really talked about this guy yet. But I've been following the story and he's totally gross. His name is Steven. Manashi he's slated for a confirmation vote today. Thursday to the Appeals Appeals Court for a lifetime appointment and he's drawn criticism in prior hearings and in life in general for being a huge dick his in his past writings. Things he's denounced. Women's marches against sexual assault. He's dismissed education about multi multicultural awareness. And he's accused major a major. LGBTQ plus group of exploiting the murder of a gay student for political ad for political ends. That's Matthew Shepard. He clerked for Alito. WHO's a giant asshole? He's just super gross. He has no experience So much so that Republicans are even giving him a tough time in the hearings including John Kennedy. Who's a total dick well as it turns out? This guy was involved in the education department's Illegal Collection Collection of student. Debt from people who attended predatory for profit colleges specifically Carinthian colleges in this case Menashe devised a plan and wrote a memo to collect the debt when he was the acting general counsel under the education. Secretary Betsy Devos how it was his plan. That was ruled a violation of privacy laws by the federal judge and the department was ordered to stop up collecting the debts. They did not and the judge almost jailed devos for it instead. They find her one hundred thousand dollars in held her in contempt. I wish she blamed that guy. She was trying to blame their firms that they employed. Yeah apparently he's the firm. The acting general counsel and Legal Counsel of the Department of Education the firm deck so menagerie wrote a plan memo That would use earnings data from the Social Security Administration to forgive only small percentages of debts by borrowers who attended grinchey colleges a for profit school that the Obama Administration found misled. THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS CORINTHIANS BANKRUPTCY left graduates with worthless degrees stories and huge student loan debts. He wrote that basically. If these folks made any money at all that they benefited from their college and shouldn't get their debts forgiven. They would have to pay like he like one lady. I think Matto used this example. She went to school and as it turns out she graduated but the when she tried to get a job in her field in the healthcare field. She wasn't properly trained and they didn't give her the right credits that she needed to do it. So she couldn't get that job but because she had a different job and was making some sort of money they gave they forgive twenty percent of our loans and made her pay the other eighty even though the Obama administration discharged these loans and said they all had to be forgiven. Wow people that are unaware of those other actions. Apparently by people like Obama and the hour just trying to erase it And as of this recording we are still waiting to hear if he's he's been confirmed for a lifetime. Appointment on appeals court. Confirmation hearing was today I haven't seen anything on IT Mandy. Would you mind googling that have Wifi to see if Menashe E. M. A. N. A S H. I was confirmed today. They've had to postpone his confirmation twice now because he's just such Dick. How can you is? He not like somehow tied up in that ongoing legal action and that device in. Apparently you think you'd be named in the documents or something. Yeah well they just got. Well the They configure Oh the judiciary committee advanced. It goes to the full house. A full Senate wait on party lines Thursday so so it already nominations okay. So confirmation hearing wasn't today or confirmation vote wasn't today it was just the the committee the and so now it will go to the full Senate so that started in the Senate judges confirmed in the Senate. That's right isn't it. Yeah Yeah that's why we have to take the Senate back this time interesting yet will yes definitely. Because that's where judges get confirmed so no no judge appointees originate in the house judiciary now does any do any appointees originally in house judiciary not for federal courts. Cool I unless I'm wrong. In which case law lemon. Oh yeah yeah and it used to be used to have more use to need more votes. But then they McConnell the Republicans went nuclear on federal judges not Scottish judges So there we are and the trial of the Bobby Duke continues. That's stone. Oh show me a tweet. where he just he looks like? Oh my God. Yes with the hat. Yup Yup The FBI agent. Michelle Taylor Baba Duck. She is so the FBI agent. Michelle Taylor the one that testified all day yesterday continued this morning Today the government began going over where the rules of the Intel Committee that he lied to. And you're not supposed to lie. And then they played a recording of stone taking his oath and promising not to lie and then they played a recording according of stone telling Info wars and a GOP group that he had a back channel to assange and they played recordings of stone lying to the committee to the Intel Intel Committee Inbetween allies. The government would show documentary evidence proving. He was lying for example telling Congress he had no intermediary showing emails that Credit Co was his intermediary then they would play a recording where stone said he had no texter documents with credit card and then the prosecutors would hit pause and show a bunch of texts and documents where he was talking to craddock. Oh then they even even show a chart of stones one hundred fifty to written communications with Credit Co.. This went on for most of the morning. Just playing audio mediums and the sound fighting burn and providing the evidence that he lied. Thank God and he's sitting there reveling in it. Just you Maury like the lie detector test shows that was alive over and over again and they also showed all the documentary evidence that stone intimidated Krecko telling him to take the fifth and mentioned mentioning Tangibly Multiple Times. He's The guy from the godfather part to Yes a funny part is all of his texts where he was threatening Krecko using Tanjile at auto corrected multiple times in his threatening text messages. Like don't you better pull a Frank Panton. Geel you don't WanNa be frank pants ans- Gaulle or just like all these funny like misspellings tangibly then the former. FBI Agent Walked the court through the scene from the Godfather to to where Frankie five fingers Pantano forgets a bunch of stuff just forgets it magically in front of when he testified to Congress rather than implicate the corleones own family all in all they reenacted the scene because they couldn't the judge Amy Berman Jackson Jesse Jackson. If you're nasty decided they couldn't show the movie clip and court because it would be prejudicial so again stone but stone was the one right you living in gotta calling him fantastically so they can talk about it in that sense. I guess they just can't bring it. Ms Yeah the implant. Yeah so all in all stone told Credit Co seven times to take the fifth referenced. Pantano twice and told him not to speak speak to law enforcement three times and they have all the emails and texts even though stone told Congress he never texted her any documents with Krecko so the prosecution will continue presenting their case until mid next week is what they're figuring so we we should hear from gates and bannon before them and it seems like stones main defense with all of those things that he was doing sketchy cover at behaviors years not because he was covering up actual crimes because he was trying to cover up the appearance of a crime. I've seen that. Is that what he said. I've seen that that will that out that reasoning I saw Outlined in one of the reportings of I think it was like Natasha or something but there are thing right. They're trying to do that in the now. That's another thing that the GOP is saying in the impeachment meant things that you know. It's not just that you I mean it is that you know extorted Ukraine by withholding four hundred million dollars in military military aid to get investigations into Biden. Get dirt on a political opponent and to have them. You know publicly questioned the to the findings of your own intelligence communities in two thousand sixteen gene but now they're saying You know but all of the efforts to cover that up to lie about it to put it. You know it's Ju- you don't that shows consciousness of guilt. It's so obvious right. And that's what I think I was reading. That's for sure what I was reading in. The defense opening statement reporting that was coming out. Yesterday was talking about stuff like if he had conversations with trump or not saying that saying that he didn't is because he was trying to cover up the appearance of there being some sort of criminal colluding behavior because there wasn't a crime it just looks bad yes exactly n because it looked looked bad. That's why he was trying to cover it up and that's why he was doing all of these. Like sketchy looking things. Okay right so I don't know it doesn't really change the fact that you still tampered and lied. I know that's just weird What's now what's now Chu? Yeah Okay this is apparently at that Another rally John Kennedy. Who is one of the senators? I mentioned that was questioning the Menagerie. So so he this guy thinks menagerie is is a piece of shit basically insulted Nancy Pelosi. What did he say called her? It must suck to be that does suck to be that dumb. They can only speak in four letters. Look at that. It doesn't exceed none of those words for letters to suck to be that dumb ironic as fuck not one multi celebic home in the sentence must talk to dumb. It doesn't even. It makes a last line of a Haiku. There's not even a noble's now yep and that's what gets them the win there it is. Gop Strategy Adage letter words. Really you went in with that is it.

"Because he's I mean he was a foreigner former. US US attorney at Suny headed this NY office You think you would've plenty of connections and maybe you want. But yeah maybe you would have. If he he had not become one of the most Li- spewing vampire sets ever come out of that office but there was also according to reporting from the Wall Street Journal. There's apparently concerns that he it would be really difficult client because he would try to lead his own case constantly. I would not want to represent rudy. Giuliani yeah a little crazy in his cases nuts. He's got a loud mouth. It'd be like who wants to be Roger Stone's lawyer God just babysitter. Slash lawyer is what that role becomes at that point. Yeah and it's no surprise that this announcement of councils coming in the days following signals that may be willing to cooperate. I think because for a while Giuliani's like I don't need council online and and Giuliani actually tweeted like was only defending my client from charges and Blah Blah Blah and due to do and I just tweeted out. I'm like sounds like somebody's about to be indicted So I think it could. We could be close to that. Yeah yeah he said this on twitter which I think kind of serves as his opening statement to the public says he says the evidence when revealed fully will show that this present farces as much a frame up in hoax as Russian collusion may be worse and will prove the president don't is innocent. That's the one that's says the man about to be a Yeah until then. Some other Giuliani News We now know more for details about the five hundred thousand dollar payment actually received from left Harnesses Company fraud guarantee based in Florida. What up as a reminder Guiliani was paid the five hundred thousand dollars from Partners Company for consulting fees and we now know the name of the man who ultimately funded that transaction? This is a personal L. injury attorney for a Long Island from the law firm apartment. Yeah exactly named Charles Gucci Ardo Gucci Gucci. Ardoz lawyer says that this money was just alone to fred guarantee in Gutierrez who is also a man who separately donated fifty thousand dollars to a trump supporting pack. So I think the arguments could definitely be made that this was just another person getting in on some effort to influence the presidency's politics so many of them. Yeah so many of them. Yeah I get it you make big donations. You expect to be able to get a meeting with the president but when you're funding this kind of breath yeah like conspiracy to help the president get dirt on a political opponent from unregistered foreign entity or directly from a foreign actor is absolutely ridiculous. all right we we have. We seen oddity audited do bareback hey everybody ag here. And I found that when life gets really really busy exercise can take a back seat but I still want to get off my back seat and stay on on top of my health and my fitness goals and mental wellbeing. Which is why I love Les Mills? Les Mills is a global fitness leader. That has been creating safe and effective fitness programs. For fifty years. The coolest thing is they have less meals on demand which is considered the.

"Hot notes all right updates on the impeachment mm-hmm it prob- first of all dropping last night after we recorded trump asked bill bar to hold a press conference to say publicly that there was nothing wrong with his phone call with Zilenski. INSKEEP bar apparently refused to hold that press conference. Though the Department of Justice did put out a statement publicly that the criminal division prosecutors found nothing wrong with the call criminally as far as federal criminal laws surrounding just campaign finance laws and they actually didn't find that through an investigation. They decided they were not going to investigate. Because because their initial read of the call told them there wasn't enough to go on a criminal investigation into just campaign. Finance laws was very narrow so like abuse of power though is not a crime right there are a lot of impeachable offenses are not crimes. So that's weird weird. But that's where he stopped short he's like. I'll say that this wasn't a crime under campaign finance laws that we didn't investigate. We won't investigate but I'm not gonNA come out and say your phone call was perfect. Trump has tweeted vehemently denying that he asked bar for this press conference though the story is well. Sourced trump tweeted quote the Amazon Washington Post and three life reporters Matt ZAPPA Taskey Josh. Doc- and Carol Lennon wrote another fake news story without without any sources about bill. Barn myself we both deny this story which they knew before they wrote it garbage newspaper and then tweeted the degenerate Washington Post. Made up up the story about me asking bill bar to hold a news. Conference never happened and there was no sources and Bill Barr. This is the last tweet. Bill Bar did not decline my request to talk about Ukraine rain. The story was a fake Washington. Post con job with anonymous sources. That don't exist. Just read the transcript. The Justice Department already ruled the call was good. We don't have freedom the press so that last tweet Dan. The last week says Bill Bar did not decline my request. So you did didn't ask. You would think your own self released transcript of the call would have spoken enough for itself you need to call them the Department of Justice to come in re say what you already said. I guess but I. I didn't ask him to but I did. And he didn't say no fake news. what And he said the Justice Department already ruled the call was good good. That's under two harms up. Then who good. They didn't do that. they just said that they weren't going to investigate it because they didn't feel that there was enough 'cause there let's better than good. They never even got the chance to to say yeah so they didn't say the call was good. They said we weren't going to investigate it. About specifically in the framework of campaign finance violation feeling upon further investigation. That hopefully will happen. Suny or something. I don't know someone I don't know they don't have jurisdiction over that though. Probably I think it'd be the next. Ag Yeah That would investigate bar. Yeah because I would have to be just like a DOJ thing on just like a federal like like from DC. I would think so. I put out on twitter. I was calling for him to recused from the Ukraine from the Ukraine case. Because I mean obviously now he's a fact witness us which he has not but a lot of people are like indict him indict him? Unfortunately it's him that he's the indictor. Yeah so it does seem though so like I mean with the hush money payments that can happen in New York obviously but then with something that's dealing with a foreign entity. How does that work if you how would you investigate campaign finance events violation for it would just have to be the DOJ house levels of federal crime? Yeah so only the federal the feds can. Ns knocking to happen. So yeah like you said that's why for example Manafort's tar charges that he's facing a New Yorker all real estate fraud based yeah and tax fraud base. Yeah just the New York specifically exactly. Yeah and also we've forget. Well we don't forget I should just mention trump has a pattern of doing this. He asked Komi to publicly exonerated. He asked mcgann DASCOMB E he has to ask Komi sessions DAS- previous to ask him. He asks everybody ready to get anyone to make a public statement saying he did nothing wrong and they all refused they all refuse to and he asked Zilenski to publicly announced investigations. Gatien's he wanted to put them in a box quote unquote so trump. Totally did this and Bartolo told him no. So why isn't trump pistole bar. The way he was pissed at sessions will well. I think it's because he needs him. Still embar knows it. Bar has leverage against trump because trump needs him for his investigation into the oranges of the Muller probe so that he can try. Try to discredit what happened in two thousand sixteen hopes either lifting Russian sanctions or just discrediting the muller findings altogether because he might be facing those obstruction of justice. Charges is when the impeachment come when impeachment articles drafted. Boris set to deliver a report on his investigation into our intelligence community. Says he's GonNa drop it right right. After thanksgiving I put beans on more whistleblowers coming out of the Department of Justice in the intelligence community when that report comes out unless unless the report just totally is true and says there's Russians interfered in our election. I've said it before I'll say it again. Don't fuck with the CIA. Yeah that's about enemy to make. This is. This is the overarching report on the whole molar. Investigation itself basically. Yeah this radio conduct of the FBI or the origins why they started it. What the FIFA rapist do all that Shit McCabe struck page steele dossier matter in their Baker? The Komi Five Live steele dossier you know bar has a real opportunity here to come out and be on the right side of history. He does his last chance. I can see it now. We had comas homies. My homie stickers. We could have bar is my star. It's not too late. It's not too late it hurts. But I'm I'm willing to dangle that sticker front his face like with Tommy Lauren when she made that one good comment about abortion rights. Right like right. That's what it was back. I think so something like that. But Bolton didn't appear today but I don't think we expected him to because Bolton had said he would go by way of Kupperman and government. Berman as as you know the his subpoena was pulled. And because they are gonNA wait instead of putting that through the courts and have judge Leon decide and and possibly possibly face appeals from the Department of Justice on that a more porta-pottys coming up. Oh come in come in. And now they're suspicious. I think we're GONNA come down because that's an empty hook going. Oh Darn it. You're going get something. I'm easily entertained like cat sitting there watching. So what what what was I talking about. Bolton copper men So they're going to win. I think you're saying he has indicated that he's GonNa wait for For the mcgann incision which could be any day now and we'll find out if even mcgann has to come and testify. But I don't know if I don't know if they're past that I it. It feels like they're not going to open that up to you. KNOW UNLESS THEY WANNA get him on the record in this impeachment inquiry for Obstruction Auction and include the articles of -struction of justice from the Mullahs report. which are laid bare clearly? Laid Out I'm just not sure and then also so you know we're still waiting for the the grand jury materials which which could take awhile We still haven't heard on whether or not the appellate court Has is going to grant the stay the administrative temporary stay. We know judge. Hal denied the stay in the DC circuit court but the DC appellate court it's three Obama appointees but they gave until Tuesday the fifth for replies and they may or may not want to hear arguments in that case or they may just rule but they they haven't said that's why we have no indication yet. That's coming out but you know there are three ways that we can get that knowledge. That documentary evidence. That trump lied to muller. And that's from the three zero. Two's which have come out but they're heavily redacted and they're rolling on a rolling basis and the grand jury materials. which we just explain where we're at with that case but then there's also Roger Stone trial which will go over in a minute and that's laying bare all of the contacts that stone had with trump uh-huh and it could come out especially with guilty verdict That he did lie about telling discussing wikileaks. Time dumps with with the trump campaign But trump specifically so. That could happen there too. I think that would be a good articles of impeachment. Because that's what Clinton was impeached each for lying to Congress whereas trump lied to muller And then what what are you have. Jordan Giuliani some Juliani stuff. Jeff today So after weeks of him trying to find a legal team he finally found himself a few lawyers to advise him presumably eventually represent him in Ukraine Gate and everything that he is all wrapped up in. He'll be represented by three attorneys. One of them's a longtime friend of his named Robert Cross. Stella Costello used actually intern for Giuliani New York so that must be pretty sweet for him satisfying metric of his career back interning and now presenting me yes. Exactly actually the crime in T- becomes the Crime Pierson Yeah And then there's two other lawyers Eric Em- Christman Christman and Melissa Magical. And they're from the law firm Pierce Bainbridge which we have heard that law firm's name before I don't remember where we've definitely heard that before for I can look it up. Sorry I should have before. You're mad I last night. And there's like ten guys that are willing to represent these folks like in the entire world. We've done that so how many times. There's like eight lawyers. Yeah Yeah we'll take him so long but He did find these people in Castelo is probably going to be his closest right hand dude throughout all this it seems Costello almost represented Michael Cohen officially but him and Cohen's professional relationship kind of fell through What happened was before or Cohen turned on? Trump Costello apparently offered to reach out to Giuliani on behalf of Kellen and after Costello gave Giuliani called to say that he might represent Cohen Costello austell apparently e mailed Cohen saying quote Rudy. was thrilled and said this could not be a better situation for the president or you And then Mr through Giuliani apparently wrote back saying he said thank you for opening this back channel of communication. The president loves you. You have friends in hi places right. Yeah Okay knows again But yes he. This email made an appearance in the Muller reports. With just like way said Costello told told Cohen that he could sleep well tonight. Oh that's right because he had friends in high places which just screams pardon obviously yeah. That's a pardon dangle. But then Cohen wind up not going going with him and then winds up switch flipping on trump. So that's that's a big. Those are big points in my book for coming you know. Where do those points? But that a pardon was dangled and he said no interesting. Yeah and and it's also a about that motto peace last night a friend of ours who was the previous guest on the show. She's she's an attorney. Defense Criminal Defense defender she. Earnings can Philip. She was talking about how it struck her as odd that motto would say why. Why would you want to hire a lawyer? You know who represented a guy. WHO's in prison? And she brought up a really good point that you know. Criminal Defenders are great people. Amazing using people and to say that you wouldn't hire a criminal defender just because they at one point had one of their clients go to jail or prison me found guilty is. I don't think I think that's a little ridiculous. Because their job is to defend these folks these these are people these are Americans they have rights they have earned the right to a defense and you know. We don't know how much the the you know. These attorneys have shorten their sentences or maybe helped them in other ways as or help to have a more fair trial etc so. I think that that was a little. I wouldn't use that as a criteria for hiring criminal defender whether to jail nature Hartman Dave fans to pardon dangle you could say like okay. Why would you WanNa hire a guy who made a debut in the molar? Report for pardoning for for dangling. Pardon yeah that okay but just because they're the I just wanted to bring that up because their client went to jail doesn't mean airbag criminal defender but for Giuliani any. That's like a lighthouse pecan right. Oh you dangle pardon Singh who are the same offer offer of pardon ending the fact that Giuliani could not find someone to represent them for this long though I think is amazing..

"And part of what was happening in the map room was computer modelling and regression analyses that allowed the matmaker craissati okay what if it's a wave election what if democrats win by a lot more than they have historically house safe will we be based on all these different potential configurations up the map or what if the way of republican election or what if it's more standard and so when you have that kind of data available to you and that kind of modeling you can make a really safe the close prediction about how to distribute your voters to maximum partisan advantage and when you look back at the mapmaking process and wisconsin and the maximum number of seats that republicans hoped their new maps would produce was fifty nine who they were right almost they are they almost predicted exactly what would happen in 2012 with these new maps and it sounds like it kept happening right it worked in 2012 and importantly it continued to work in 2014 and 2016 they have now been three elections for a state assembly in wisconsin senses new maps and in each of them republicans have won a significantly disproportionate share of seats based on their vote total just thinking about the image that you have a folks here of lawmaker is going into a law firm sign is confidentiality agreements and getting the districts that they want in order to win and then a year or so leader that's exactly what happens in election i mean there's no smoke and cigars in the room but it it feels like some kind of dark fantasy of gerrymandering.
