Google joins Hedera Hashgraphs Governing Council
"Man's. Thank you for joining us today for our listeners. Thank you great to be back. It is great to have you back and for our listeners. Who Haven't heard you on our previous podcast. Can you please give them a quick introduction on Yourself Asher So my name is harmon? I'm one of the CO founders of their Hash craft alongside Dr Leeman Baird We've been working together. Lehman I for twenty six years always in deep tack. The we've done reinforcement learning or machine learning research for the Air Force. We talked computer. Science at the Air Force Academy cybersecurity managed massive software program for the Missile Defense Agency and then decided we wanted to become entrepreneurs and this is our third startup we to prior startups in the space of identity and access management and sold one to Fortune. Five hundred the other private equity and Leman wanted to solve a really hard math problems specifically how you can achieve the limits in terms of security in a consensus algorithm distributed consensus algorithm simultaneous to maximizing performance. How you can do both at the same time. And after of hard work he invented the Hash. Graph which is consensus algorithm like blockchain is a consensus algorithm. Has Graph is an alternative approach that has fantastic properties again both in terms of security and performance and we decided to take that tha market and here. We are years later now with their hash graph. Brilliant end in that one answer. You've athlete answered the next two questions. All I can one so fishing deeper interested. Yeah Yeah I mean I think it will be useful is because one of our typical questions is please define what is blockchain and Like we did in the last podcast if you perhaps could have another go at it and at the same time point out the differences between Blockchain and a hash graph. Why Hash crowd is so much more efficient than Blockchain system sure well blockchain as a term refers to two things it refers to a data structure. Which is a chain of blocks of transactions? And it's very serious just like it sounds in the way it's created and it also the the term also refers to a consensus algorithm that enables a community of of participants each of which that holds a local copy of that chain of blocks to come to agreement or consensus on which block to put next on the top of that chain in their by everyone keeps a consistent chain of blocks and often. It's proof of work. You know the use of a really hard cryptographic puzzle into novel ways that makes it possible for the community to to come to consensus on on which blocks you go on top of of the chain. But it's designed to be slow and it. The use of proof of work causes it to be slow and The the fact that there is a single chain that everyone uses also limiting in terms of its architecture hash graph similarly is a term that refers to both a data structure in this case. It's a graph in the mathematical sense. It's a graph that is whose nodes are or verticals are linked together with Hashes gripped graphically in. So it's a data structure in there's also consensus algorithm. That makes it possible for those that have a copy of the Hash graph to calculate how each other how the other nodes in the network would vote on the order of transactions and so they come to to agreement on the order of transactions that get captured in this in this graph because it's a graph rather than a chain all of the transactions. They're flowing into the network can be processed simultaneously. There is no need for proof of work. This process that slows down blockchain to give the community time to come to agreement. There's no need for any of that and so we've basically eliminated the too constraining factors. Proof of work is no is not there. And it's a graph. Instead of a chain and the result of that is fantastic performance in it's got some great theoretical properties specifically it does achieve the limit in terms of security at something called a synchronous. Byzantine fault tolerance. It's the best one can do and in its novel in those ways Brilliant thank you very much for that and we had actually gymnasts or very recently. Come on our show. He's the CEO of core and he was telling us about how he build his colonel virus tracker using Darah Hash craft for exactly the same properties. You just described now. We've had you on this show for about ten ten eleven months ago. What industries and geographies are we seeing the most adoption of our has graph? Well I wouldn't say that there's geography necessarily. That is adopting. Maybe more than than another and the industry's when thinking about the industries. It's it's also it's more like this. It's not really that there is necessarily one industry. That is adopting faster than another but the way I would sort of segment the market or break it down in terms of what is adopting versus. Not Is that. There are a lot of enterprise use cases that are being presented in that. We're you know we're working on with partners and council members that are kind of boring in nature in some ways. What I find interesting is that while most of the market is looking for a really sexy killer. Commercial consumer focused use case. You know everybody's looking for that killer APP. That is primarily focused on building a big consumer focused use case. Our experience is just the opposite. It's for example as a category just audit based applications where you WANNA take some information in get a consensus time stamp on it and use that in various ways maybe their regulatory related. Maybe you need to be able to to just store information improve that it. It was what you claim. It was on a on a given date. There's just a whole broad range of business to business process optimization focused use cases that I think are the ones that are going to end up being the ones that take the whole market Mainstream or result in its mass adoption. And so that's the distinction that I'm seeing. It's it's not a one particular industry or one geography is more focused on B. Two B. process optimization versus consumer focused applications

Clean Energy's Ever-Changing Policy Risk
"In the summer of two thousand eight Britta von Essen took an internship with a major investment bank after wrapping up business school. It was considered at the time one of the top places to work it was with a company called Lehman Brothers and it was actually a fascinating summer. I was working in their global power group but focused on renewable energy and you know there was a lot going on at the time. Tax Equity was really ramping up. People were figuring out how the structuring was going to work with that. There are a couple. IPO's that were right on the horizon so it was a fascinating summer from renewables perspective and also what was going on at Leeman. It's been an unnerving week for US financial markets and now the potential collapse of Lehman Brothers once the fourth largest investment firm in the US at at that time. Lehman Brothers was the top investor in renewables it had bought big portfolios of wind and solar projects. It was a leading equity investor and it was helping take companies public it was an exciting time but as the summer war on market conditions worsened investors got nervous in things got grim for Leman analysts say the bank's future is in doubt out afterward reported a loss of nearly four billion dollars in the last quarter. Leman brothers is suffered heavy losses as a result of the US housing slump while I was there. It was just constant reassurance that that these cycles are normal and and you know financial markets go through this occasionally and everything was going behind of course it was not fine be one of the watershed days in financial markets histories. He was a manic manic Monday in the financial markets. The Dow tumbled more than five hundred points after two pillars of the street tumbled over the weekend leman brothers or one hundred and fifty eight-year-old firm filed for bankruptcy in the lead up to the Leeann bankruptcy in the fall. IPO's fell apart project financing dried up and cleantech companies beneath loans underwritten by the bank were suddenly exposed to risks. They didn't foresee. BRITTA had a front row seat to all of it. After leaving lemon she picked up and moved to Italy where she helped build wind and solar projects for a German developer soon after she witnessed yet another period of chaos the swift rollback of feed in tariffs the Italian market came to a screeching screeching halt. It did teach me a lot about developer resiliency the fundamental optimism that is required to be of renewable energy developer and and taking the long view on a lot of these projects so British took those lessons and apply them to the next chapter of her career. She now advises clean energy companies knees on how to manage risk so you've managed to witness the collapse of one of the biggest investment banks and one of the biggest European renewable energy markets back to back. That's quite an entrance into the industry well. I swear it's not me I'm not the not the driver and all of this but I think what it taught me was that things change and the markets move and those that are resilient and those that figure out how to work in the new paradigms that they're given are the ones who are successful so I've taken a huge amount of those lessons into my current job and into my current business where I'm basically advising folks how to roll with the ever changing markets that we see in wind and solar. I'm Stephen Lacey in this episode produced in partnership with Cohnresnick and cohnresnick capital talking talking with British Ivano sin about those ever changing market conditions today Britta's a managing director at cohnresnick capital over the last decade. She's seen all kinds of market risk mostly expiring or changing policies that create financial risk you know I it was the sixteen o three grant expiring then it was. ITC expiring PTC's stepping down. What are the safe harbor policies we we didn't even get the IT safe safe harbor policies until fairly recently. I think it's just a fundamental aspect of this industry. It's Salat about planning for the unexpected in British. Job is to help figure out how to get renewable energy deals done in the face of those challenges so I sat down with her to unpack some of those policy uncertainties and what they mean for renewables and I wanted to know how often does policy change derail projects so I have. You've worked on project many projects that were potentially derailed that we manage to work around various policy changes. I think change in tax law was a really interesting time where we had to figure out how to keep the investors active of an investing in two projects that would probably not be commissioned for another twelve months and how to get around the fact that there was a very likely change in tax law to be passed at that time and yet nobody knew exactly what that was going to look like. I think this PG bankruptcy recently and the California I think it was a be ten fifty four the wildfire response bill that has been high in the mind of a lot of California developers at the moment who were focused on contracts with sce NASD Johnnie and whether or not those credit ratings. We're GONNA take ahead that policy was passed and I think both of those organizations are are quite secure and short up and that was that was great news for California winging developers across the board with or without contracts well. Let's walk through some of the big drivers and uncertainties around them so you mentioned. PG Ag any I'd like to talk about PG and understand. What are you now looking for in a bankruptcy proceeding what kind of risks to contracts tracks are there currently what has been sorted out and what's still left to be sorted out that would impact renewable energy developers so I believe there is still still quite a bit of uncertainty as far as the potential for PG any to cancel contracts that are considered out out of market today so these would be some of the earlier vintage. PPA's there are several conversations and I know cohnresnick has been a part of several several of these about trying to restructure this through bilateral negotiations with pg any and kind of nipping in the bud lead and coming to a good solution for all parties but otherwise I think there is still a strong degree of uncertainty here there there are investors who are then making plays in this and trying to pick up these assets making a bet as to whether or not there will be restructuring of the contracts are not as as well as you know. It's an unfortunate situation but it's certainly a very active group of projects and sponsors that are figuring out working working through how to navigate that uncertainty. Let's go to tax equity. The solar investment tax credit is now facing the beginning of its step down schedule this is obviously going to impact the economics of project development but we have had some clarity on this step down unscheduled for for years now how is facing down the IDC GONNA change the way projects are financed and does it present any risks that were not there previously so you're right. There is a very clear step down schedule which I think has been helpful for folks trying to new forecasts what this looks like that being said given the safe harbor provision. I would venture that there is a generic assumption option from those who are procuring. PPA's at the moment that their assets that their projects will be safe harbored many of the major. I pee pees Jason. Strategic are making significant safe harbor place. They are you know doing this both for their own projects jags and under the assumption that there will be Ebony advantages over the next few years which I agree with. I think a lot of these developers that are procuring making this assumption are going to limit themselves to buyers of the assets that can then fulfill the safe harbor in order to meet the Economics Amax. What do you think the chances of an extension of the investment tax credit are. I know that the Solar Energy Industries Association has all of a sudden and put this back on their priorities list. They think maybe there's an opening to extend the federal tax credit. What do you think the chances of that arc given what you know so there's a couple a couple aspects of this that are important absolutely it would be beneficial to the industry right that being said we are months away from the step down last time this extension happened. I think we had a good twelve months of lead time so it allowed loud folks to plan at least partially accordingly in this case you would actually jam up probably some more some of the more major players who have made significant safe harbor plays that would have been capital that was not necessary to deploy a and potentially at pricing that is not beneficial to their assets so there are mixed mixed feelings throughout the industry about this. I think there is a decent chance I also think it's interesting giving kind of the economic markets at the moment and the potential for a downturn. Let's call it in the next twelve to eighteen months renewable such a critical component of job security and job growth in the US economy at the moment that especially if we're facing some type of downturn it may increase congressional and government support for some type of extension here. What about the storage tax credit. That's been floating around Congress for for a long time if there is this renewed push for potential solar. It see where does the storage. I T C fit in there would would it be something separate. Would it be wrapped together. And what do you think the chances of getting this thing finally pastor. I think the storage credit is actually much more critical critical than the than the solar one in the in the near term here I think with Alda we will continue to have murkiness around trying trying to loop storage into either wind or solar tax credits which is is just messy. It's hard for investors to get their heads around it. Just adds a lot of confusion and it also limits what you can do from adding storage onto existing renewable energy projects objects. I think throughout the energy community there is a consensus that storage is a critical component that needs to be deployed on a large scale will in order for renewables to continue on the growth. It is an in order to hit. Some of these are targets hundred percent in California boring. If for example you you have to have the storage component there otherwise you're facing you know a variety of issues on you know intermittent see or demand or any variety of aspects so. I am a little more bullish on the storage tax credit. I I think a standalone tax credit does a lot to simplify and streamline financing aspects for storage whether or not it connected to renewables and whether or not commissioned at the same time as the

"We spend on this show as you know a fair amount of time parsing all the different economic indicators out there retail sales those jobs numbers trade figures home sales most of that data comes from government sources or trade groups but corporate earnings season gives us a chance to peek at the books of some of the biggest companies in our economy.

There are a lot of forces pulling at U._S.. Companies Right now on the one hand. You've got slower global growth. You've got trade issues on the other hand. There are positive things like the Fed might lower interest rates. The big question is how are companies coping with it all. Are we GONNA see generalized growth in here over. Are we going to see the companies are meeting lowered expectations in spite simply doing more with less Max Wolf is managing partner at financial consulting for multi variant companies can adapt they can cut costs. They can finesse their accounting. Some economists are worrying specifically about industrial firms BURBS IT produce things Steve Blitz is chief economist with T._e._S.. Lombard industrials include companies from Boeing to homebuilders because that's the area the macro data. That's curated the most and second quarter and so you WanNa see what's happening there. Meanwhile companies with international footprints will continue to tell us how the president's trade conflicts are trickling into the economy. Mark Leeman is president of J._N._p..

Where are musicians making money
"Ninety nine was a peak year for the music industry with sales reaching fourteen point six billion dollars in the US. And then, you know, the story Napster happened I tunes happened and the CD store died twenty years later. The music business is back to, quote one writer it's back like a zombie prime to devour the world on a massive scale because of streaming services, some projection show that music, revenue may soon surpass the benchmark set in the late nineties, here's pitchforks, senior, staff writer, Marc HOGAN, basically, your for years and years as has been widely publicized, the industry was doing really badly. But now has been finally growing again recently, thanks to the expected growth from a streaming. Goldman Sachs says forty one billion dollars annually by twenty thirty. Right. I mean, unless bear in mind that Leeman brothers in nineteen ninety nine also. Had these really rosy upbeat predictions for industry and the industry crashed and then leading others is now gone. So these, these predictions should all be taken with a grain of salt, but people seem to expect the industry to be healthy again. So that's the labels how Spotify doing Spotify. They keep growing. They have more and more users, they're expected to keep growing around the world, the revenues are pretty big, but they generally lose money. So Spotify struggling to turn all of these users into actual profits in your article, you do really great breakdown of where the revenue goes. So break it down for sure. Well, according to deutchebanks report, the earlier this year, for everyone hundred dollars consumer spending on CDs or vinyl of the labels profit is eight dollars for every one hundred dollars spent on down those on, I tunes, that's nine dollars. And for every one hundred dollars spent on streaming the labels profit is. Thirteen dollars. So the share that goes, the labels is actually bigger under your streaming than it was under the old physical formats, is that simply because of logistics cost of production. They don't have to make a thing cutting out the middleman. Yes, exactly, where's the rest of the money, go to well, I think, for musician it varies based on what they're deal is what I found the more people I talked with is just it really depends. And it's it's difficult to come up with a single simple number for what -sition gets now. Let's talk about musicians. How is this boom affecting, you know, the people who are actually, making the music the way, the boom, seems to be musicians is similar to what we're seeing across the economy, really where the upper echelon Hughes doing better and better, and the middle income, and lower income is issues are not doing this. Well, I talked to one you leibel head who said that the middle class for musicians has dried up. That's not really there anymore. What's the average musician making no days? Well, according to one survey, it was around. Around thirty five thousand dollars in two thousand seventeen but only about twenty one thousand three hundred dollars that came from activity related to music. So that's live gigs that streams merge live for the most common source of income. So these are professional musicians, who are not able to make a living doing music. Exactly. Yeah. I mean, that's kind of what we're seeing is getting harder and harder for the vast majority of people who actually make music to make living on the other hand, though. You've had some really interesting conversations with the indie rapper, Jay pick, Maffia what he tell you. Well, he's a very interesting guy all
How to Become Successful in Sales
"Today. I've got another clip from my ninety minute long conversation with Dana Leeman from Wiley in episode thirty seven of the sales success stories podcast here. She is again talking about how to become successful in sales. I would I tell them to be patient to be extremely hungry. And really a big win that I think a lot of people forget about Scott is to be humble, and to really look at other people not just where they work, but other people that they know whether it's an assails job or something else about how they gained their success and to talk to those people and walk right up to them. That was one of the things I did early on when I started Wiley is I found out who were the leaders and the drivers of sales success in our company and I walked right up to them. And I just said and one of them is Mary Jo maxi. She's absolutely amazing. She's been with Wiley a long time. I said I wanna be around you. I wanna know what you do. And I wanna know how you do it. And she was kind enough for many occasions that we've had great conversations and were personal friends to this day but to seat those people out, even if it's uncomfortable for you,

"Good morning, Dr Leeman. Hey, good morning. How are you guys? We're we're doing great. You know, we always look forward to speaking with you because you're hilarious, your informative and you're a popular author as well. Well, I'll tell you the truth. I went to the dock and he said Lima new too fat. I said, I want a second opinion ISA. You're not good. Lookin' eater. Oh, that's not true. Chicks. Follow me. So we'll cheers of in walkers. Very embarrassing. So security once a month. So so Dr Kevin I I saw you on Oprah Winfrey. Show. It was about your book the birth order book, and this is many years ago. But I I'm watching you you you called up I'm guessing like six or maybe eight people onto the stage you interviewed them for about fifteen seconds. And you just went through the line and said, okay, your first born your a middle child. You're the baby and the family your firstborn male. And it was incredible at I went out your book right away. How did you come upon this birth order stuff? Tell us a little bit about the origins of this. Well, the origins comes guy named Alfred Adler who was actually in Vienna and studied with Freud and they found out in public debate. They were very different, but Elvis Adler talked about this striving for superiority analogous to when we were kids we'd be on a pilot standard Gertie idea was a stay on top of the pile and throw the other people off. So that striving for superiority that the birth order emerged from and I was year smart enough or dumb enough to take the work could ever talked about and westernized it into something was very palatable for the North American families families around the world because the more traditional the society, the more pronounced the impact the firstborn has upon the rest of us peons. So let's talk about some of the traits of the firstborn and the only child as well because I just what what you say. Just the light bulbs go off. And in my mind, I'm thinking ok this makes total sense. I've seen this all over my life. Go ahead. Well, older children are a class by themselves. Okay. To the ones that do things. Just over the top little Dulce. They do logarithms in their head eight. I mean, they're just they read voraciously they're not great with other kids their age their prefer adult company. Firstborn children are reliable conscientious list makers, call our first born daughter. Well, her real name is Holly. We call her judge Judy. She could run your life mine as well. Good job of it. By the way. She's a superintendent assistant superintendent a huge school district. So tells you some of her organizational skills, so first born Windsor, astronauts and daughter space, the first twenty three twenty one were first born the other two are only children. So how their remarkable people there the movers and shakers, but they can be critical lied. They can be perfectionist, dick. They can be a little suckers. In fact, I worked up enough nerve one day to tell my wife, this is up into the first born. I said, you know, you're Bossie. She said to muscle beach. Bauchi ideas are just better than yours. I four the lab rat of the family parents practice on them. That's important feature middle children. We don't curb on Middleton. Let's go to the babies. Gregarious outgoing never met a stranger are entertainers of activity will name a comedian those clowns on late night. Jimmy Kimmel Jimmy Fallon. Stephen Colbert, all babies Ellen will be Jim Carey Martin short Chevy. Chase delay Joan rivers. Jay Leno, all baby of the family. Wow. So the forty one is the ones that got attention got in trouble that was cupping Lehman maybe middle children. I know you feel slighted but get a grip on yourself. You're used to it your mediators negotiators and actually you're the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You get a bad rap. But you don't get a bad rap from the other than I make funny once in a while because you go is about everybody in a relationship. You're a good match for first born a good match for only a good match for baby. Speaking of matches the best matches are the extremes. The only child of the baby the first born and the baby. And then you have people that we all know, including for example, my wife, she's the baby in the family. But there's a there's about ten years between her and the next siblings. So she has the the baby tendencies, but also she's like a firstborn or even an only child does that make sense to you Dr Lehman, I would call her a baby with a whip. That's it. That's it. You describe it. Her position when you're in that position because your parents have practiced on one or more kids. You know, I worry about everything they eat by the time. Your wife came along your in-laws, grab some food through it on the floor and.

"And that's the reason he declared a national emergency. So Harvey was to real situation on the border and also the situation regarding illegal immigrants. Well, what you said those are Trumpy and fantasies the US measures the numbers of migrants who are caught between legal ports of entry not at ports of entry. And so you'd never know it from Trump, but the number is comparable to the lows of the nineteen seventies. So the number of people coming across trying to get around walls or unmarked borders is very low and also one of the things that Trump wants to do here is to take money from the defense department and repurpose that for the wall, but the money ironically that he's trying to take from the defense department or the drug entry is going. To be wasted. Because most of the drugs that come into the United States, actually, come through the legal ports of entry. So this is either another set of fake Trump facts. So Mr. Leeman, what's your observation? You know, I think I mean for critics in for for for supporters alike. I think this whole thing is really problematic not because of the so-called declaration of emergency on the southern border and not on anyone's opinion with regards to immigration. But you know, it's it's the situation where those that live by the sword will die by the sword..
Will ex-NHLers take the leagues money and go away?
"Sport. Tennyson and he's in and he is hurt. Nobody force these guys to play some people might sit lucky to get any money considering the court already throughout their lawsuit. A lot of pain right now. But over the next two weeks, hundreds of former NHL hockey players will each have a decision to make. Dangling in front of them is a cash settlement from the NHL. It's not huge. But it's not nothing either. It's the result of negotiation after the lawsuit. I mentioned was dismissed that lawsuit alleged that the league failed to warn or protect its players from the head injuries. That are you know, part of hockey, but in order to get that money. The players will have to sign away a list of things including chief among them their right to pursue legal action against the league for any claim of head trauma or else. They can reject the settlement keep their rights and go it alone taking on the league in court, depending on how many players take this deal, and how much noise the remaining hold-outs can make many of them have spoken loudly already. This is either the final chapter of hockey's legal battle over brain injuries or just the latest in a long and unwinding saga. I'm Jordan heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Dan, Robson is a senior writer and head of features at the Atlantic. Canada is also the author of several books about players current and former Dan first of all tell me where the class action suit came from. We'll basically back in twenty thirteen a group of players sort of in line with what was happening with the NFL came forward with a council to sort of set of claims thing that they're that alleged that the NHL had information about the the effects of concussions on future neurological disorders that had been kept from them in their playing days, and they were not properly informed. Therefore, they believed that the NFL was sort of liable for the effects that they were facing later on in life, and what happened to that suit over the last few years. So it's it was a heavily contentious debate that battled back and forth sort of ferociously the NHL didn't budget all in any in any capacity and basically after. Five years of of going back and forth in court this summer. The the class action proposal was dismissed by coordin-, Minnesota Australian Saint Paul's because basically the the legal claim that they were trying to make just wasn't going to stand up in class act certification, and they had an uphill battle is very difficult to to sort of gain class action certification, and they sort of fought and fought and fought, but the same time the NHL fought and fought and fought as well. And so now there are three hundred players three hundred some players soon in eighteen hundred and eighteen who were hoping to be part of a class action suit. What were their options when the suit was tossed, basically, they had nothing. I mean, really when the when these suits is tossed the they're on their own, right? So in terms of the the group, which they had, you know, you've been able to have sort of that that force be able to go at it as a whole now, it's sort of individual cases, in some cases that might be beneficial for some of the players, but as a whole they were they were basically sunk and so. So the NHL really didn't have to do anything beyond that. But but I mean, they just then they decided that they'd come forward when in agreement with the council of the players with the plaintiffs the, and and th the judge also sort of nudged them in this direction encouraged them to find some sort of resolution, the NHL came for with a concussion settlement proposal that that came forward in November of this year, basically, it outlines a payment to the players involved, which comes to approximately between two thousand dollars US per player as well as a promise of neurological testing, and then beyond that there was a fund that would allow players who are deemed, you know, in need of more support in this way, they will be given up to seventy five thousand dollars in care. Now that comes from a limited pot of about one point one million dollars, though. So every player now has to decide on their own whether or not they want to be part of this. Right. So they're given a initially a date of seventy five a timeline of seventy five days in which there. We're going to be able to decide if they were gonna opt in or opt out that has since been extended that expired last Friday that Cincinnati's extended three weeks. So in the next few weeks, you're going to find players that they'll be players only deserted decide if they're going to be joining or not, and it's been a in a player with the players have chatted with. I mean, there's been a difficult decision. There's a large legal document in front of them, and they have to sort of decide what exactly they're signing off to. So who are these players who are we talking about here? What era any names we recognize? Well, I mean, it's it's kind of a wide range of names. I mean, some of the younger players the ones that are more recent recognize it'd be a Dan Castillo was obviously one of the most vocal proponents of short to take action against the league and trying to create a more awareness of of the realities of head injuries. And what they do other players. I mean, you go back in the air as to know, Gary Leeman was part of this right and Gary Leeman played through the eighties. Nineties is a great player at that time. He was one of the bigger names involved. There's players like that go further back that people may not even recognize a quite actually. Quite a bunch that people. I recognize that played through the seventies and eighties and nineties, and that I guess she was sort of classify as no marginal players, right? And guys the didn't make a ton of money presumably, and that's key. Yeah. A lot of players who you know, you see people sort of on the one angle sort of criticizing the sort of a money grab will there are a lot of players who wouldn't have made the kind of salaries that that we sort of frame a professional hockey player within today. So I think you know, there's a lot of players that for example, twenty two thousand dollars. It sounds like nothing to today's h well, Well, it is it nothing. is nothing nothing them. And, but it's nothing it's something that they can't just sort of sniff at and and some of the players, I've chatted with acknowledged that they said, you know, I I'm not entirely comfortable with where we stand, but I have an option of either taking something or nothing you talked to a bunch of these guys. Well, I guess I you mentioned Dan Carso. So tell me historian tell me what he's doing about this settlement. Well, we'll Dan is as I said one of the more vocal personalities of their who suffered greatly in his career and has been quite open about the the trauma that he's sort of face through. Obviously he believes injuries on the ice that carried into his life through neurological disease at a lot of research on it, and he sort of created a sort of an ongoing campaigns that challenge the NHL in the status quo. Abo-, you know, the culture of just accepting head injury. As a part of the game and denying the realities that down the road this causes. Neurological disorders. So Dan has been one of those guys who's been sort of front and center in in the case. And he's a person that I think is attempting to you know, help educate other players the the best he can. So he's not taking the settlement. He is vehemently not taking the settlement. No, he's urging others, and I should say he's he's urging others to make the best Asian for themselves. You know, he would say he would say don't take the settlement. But at the same time, you have to knowledge that, you know, it's it's it's presumptuous to assume that somebody can say no to something like twenty two thousand dollars. So he's saying read through the settlement. Make sure you're checking with council, maybe not necessarily your own council within the case because within the case, the plaintiff's council have agreed to this concussion settlement, they they were negotiated it. Yeah. And they're suggesting that the players take it, obviously is important to note that within the settlement to the NHL is covering the attorney's fees. Now, the attorneys aren't coming

"So we talked about how we might make some predictions to renar interesting chat today, and I wanna just mention a couple of things number one year absentee rate that there is a Wall Street economy. There is a main street economy, and they are very different. You know, there are financial assets in their real assets. In what the said, that's interesting. I talked about this a lot of my show is that the day before Mike, you know, most people consider the great recession beginning with the fall of Leman brothers. Okay. Tenure just over ten years ago and the day before Leeman fell or whatever you consider the great recession to have begun. Right. The day before that you looked around the world and everything had everything was there. Right. All the real estate. Was there? All gold. Was there all the silver? Was there all the companies were there all the copper was there every commodity earth? Was there the day after that when the recession started and even at its worst point all those assets were still there. Well, set the only thing that destroys them is war. Right. Mike was looting earlier. So the real wealth is still there. But it definitely changes hands the title of that wealth definitely moves around a lot. And that's what everybody listening wants to protect themselves from and so one of the things I would say is own real assets. Financial assets are much more volatile in one reason they're much more volatile will number one. They're not real and number two there. Easily tradable when things are easily tradable value change, very quickly cemented the cryptocurrency markets, obviously in the stock market real assets. That are they have a lot more friction to the trade. They don't move with so much volatility, and I'm a real estate fan, right? It has a lot of friction to trade it high cost trading a slow process of trading that kind of thing. So you can you have a little more time to react. Whereas if you're investing in a.

"He moved onto Morgan Stanley whereas Wall Street collapsed during two thousand seven and eight he and his colleagues, watched the company's stock price plunged lower and lower people he knew who worked at Lehman Brothers Bear Stearns. And Morgan more and more of them, lost their jobs but he held onto his until two thousand eleven when his. Entire division at Morgan was moved to India Bob didn't, want to move to India. But he did realize the. Getting another, job on Wall Street would be tough only people getting hired, with those, right out of college and it is early fifties Bob wasn't getting. Any nibbles in fact he says it was a realization kinda just hit. Me like you know I don't think I'm going to be working in this industry anymore Emily was the one at the time that made a suggestion to me, she had, been shopping. At trader Joe's and Paramus every once in a while taking trips, up Up there and she noticed that they were hiring Back to me she says you, know what do you think about trader Joe's I I was like really That's, so out of my realm so not? Leeman, absolutely it's not, anybody But. We. Were looking into it and they have like the most amazing package overall. The insurance is just. Terrific if you're lucky enough to to get it I'm not everyone does. You have to be a fulltime employees making. A certain amount of hours I went there for the heck of it, an interview with? With them came back the following day and they said you know what there's actually a trader Joe's that's being built right now due to open. Up in about a month and it's much closer to where you live so he went there this Wall Street trader traded in his suit and. Tie to work at trader Joe's on route three. In Clifton, New Jersey you went from working a top Wall. Street job you know you were trader and then you went to traders that's pretty amazing because I'm not. A lot of people would have. The courage to. Do. Something like that Yeah. And it, was tough it's I mean I guess I believe. In myself enough and I can only imagine some of the outside chatter from friends of ours or whatever And I'm? Sure they probably still do and in fact I got you know people, say like, they're. Always on top of me are getting another job you know, how's it, working out and then after a few, months, owned by and I. Haven't gotten, anything they're like okay are. You thinking of of of looking outside of, New Jersey you know moving somewhere and I was always like no I like it here you know this is where we're, happy I'm not gonna, have? Any plans on moving and then it hit me that because the, Molder because maybe. More stylish than some others? Because I, worked thirty years already I thought to myself why why can't I be in. A position where I can accept, less but less salary you know what I mean I mean I spent my whole life in a way, preparing. For a situation like this all that preparation comes with again the crucial thing that Bob and Emily. Needed, health insurance for the. Two. Of them, and their teenage son Brandon one of the main reasons for needing benefits is because I knew coming down the pike for me I, was going to need major heart surgery and I had, actually been, offered a few consulting? Jobs during that year from when I left Morgan to before I started, Joe's but, I. Turn them down because those consulting jobs do not come with, benefits it's, strictly salary and I needed more than, that, so anyway so and. I knew, the my surgery was coming. Down the line and as it turned out, two years ago in two thousand sixteen is when it had my heart surgery and so not only did I have heart, surgery then Emily also, had? Major surgery of her own just a few months before I did, I mean in. That one year I mean? If I, were to come up with them we probably had three hundred thousand dollars worth. Of medical expenses and if we, didn't have insurance you know that would have hurt us significantly just proves how important health insurance is you, know. For any kind of a job I mean I'll take this one I can let me tell you Leans up let me tell you let. Me? Tell you sister the here's what happened I thought. About that all the time when people try to quantify his job with the salary I'm like oh no no no his job, is the benefits if the salary went away I would still ask him to. Stay at that job the benefits are where everything. I don't, know how we would have gotten through that year financial it really one more thing to note I have known Bob and Emily for about a decade now their son and. My son were in pre k. together and this, is without a doubt the most relaxed I have ever seen Bob Lutz the suit entire. Gone he answered the door and, a sweatshirt, jeez Villanova ball cap and he's smiling a, lot trader Joe's is actually a very physical job I don't. Know that I could work at, trader Joe's, he wears the he keeps track of his steps the fifth that wears. And he, takes an average of during a. Regular workday, sixteen thousand sixteen thousand. Steps during the shift right that's Not when I make him like come home and mow the lawn so Bob lost he didn't. Have a lot of weight to lose, but, he lost you. Know and he's. Just it's a it's a it was a very big. Change I don't know that I could have done that. And I don't, know I think Bob's looking forward. To the day where he can slow that down as well but in the, meantime it's been great for me for my. Physical. Wellbeing You know what. I mean to be acted like that I mean. You know sitting me say me how to desk at a desk job is not that great for me I have to, be active and. Just, going to work I get that activity so how important, is that, idea of truly being happy I'm someone who. Has taken, that training to New York plenty of times, the six, zero five or the seven. Fifteen seven twenty-seven and then get home again. On the seven fifteen the eight fifteen get long hours into New York. It takes a toll on you and there's there is something to. Be said for. Just being happy where you are now it's very, zen yes if, you can, do it and I totally, understand that, you know this is a very. Expensive place to live I mean even with our, little tiny two bedroom. House you know our property taxes are tremendous like it's a very expensive place to live. So I get that, people have to do that commute into the city For us it's it's. Just been wonderful it's so nice it's we have Bob Homer often which, is just you know him and my son our. Wonderful friends and they spend a lot of time. Together and if if you're able to make it work somehow I think it's just the greatest thing so resiliency changing world, faith in each. Other, and happiness those seem to be the keys new reality, for this, former investment.

The controversy over 'Kylie Jenner, self-made billionaire,' explained
"Lot too much and vitamins for sale and body brushing and dieting, and the afterlife and crystals. And I swear to God something called psychic vampire repellent, which is a spray -able elixir that uses gem healing to something something bad vibes. Clearly we could all use one. Well, it obviously works because we're empires, Zoe. So my like button this week is. A response pen in the New Yorker by a writer that I admired Shia Tolentino to a couple of different pieces that have emerged in recent weeks that have gotten a lot of backlash including the Kylie Jenner cover of Forbes, in which she is lauded as a quote self made near-billionaire now as well as a piece published in refinery twenty nine th money diary section that originally had the headline. This millennial gets by on twenty five dollars an hour in New York City and neglected to mention the fact that she gets eight hundred dollars a month from her parents, three hundred dollars a month, wired to her from her grandfather and her parents. Yes, pay her rent and her phone Bill and her healthcare, right? So, but I thought that GM's responses was really interesting because she sort of looked at the reasons why we were so incensed by this, and it's not so much that you know these people are, are you know, handed at all. So it's not fair to call them sort of self made or or hard. Workers is that like we've gotten to a point economically where it's conceivable that somebody could be wealthy and still not be wealthy enough to to to have it easy like you can still like the language of struggling is still acceptable to somebody who has say, a trust fund or their parents subsidizing their rent in New York City. And I thought that was a really compelling argument. I also like to point about the fact that all of these stories were about young women. Young women are supposed to show the effort. They're supposed to be likable and they're not supposed to own the fact that they have money and they have privilege. There is a grand tradition of these pieces. When I remember from the nineties in Harper's by Vince Pizarro in which he said, you know, I make a hundred thousand dollars a year in New York City, and I'm still poor because he has four children and that caused a similar kind of like what the fuck, right outrage. And then there was two, two years ago, a piece in the Atlantic by a guy who'd like, you know, had gone into tremendous debt and. It turned out he had a house in the Hamptons, four hundred thousand dollars. And yeah, I mean, I, I, I like Jesus take on it too, but I think the the whole genre is designed to to kind of troll us in precisely this manner. My my like biting this week is a New York Times story about robot waiters in China, which is something of a sensation. There are a lot of restaurants. You can go to now where the robots come out and bring you the food and it doesn't even matter whether the robots work or not, which I think would kind of be important if they're carrying say soup like any spilled on you. But there's this scene in the in the story that is the opening of the global intelligence and world business summit in Shanghai in June. And the idea was that these kind of tech guys and academics, we're going to kick off the conference by controlling this robot with their mind. Donning black headbands that looked like implements of electroshock therapy. The. Seven men and two women on stage were told to envision themselves. Pressing a button. The headbands would transmit their brain activity to the robotic hand sharing the stage, which would then push a button to officially start the conference. A countdown began a camera, put the robotic hand onto a huge screen of the stage. The people on t. onstage seem to concentrate, and then nothing happened. The hand remain motionless. The Ken repent away. All I can think of is they need this at Gwyneth Paltrow's next week. That's it for this week's income centered. I want to thank my colleagues, Maria Aspen, panky, Jim and for the last time. So we had it matters because the world is ending tomorrow and blood moon explosion there is that I also special thanks to Jonathan Leeman and Keach

Oil falls on OPEC's deal to raise output, but markets to remain tight
"Let's talk about oil as well christine brent crude is down almost two percent right now as investors kind of assess how much more supply will flow into the market after the opec and friends meeting on over the last week and into the weekend yeah you had huge moves in the oil market on friday and that was because that was the initial opec meeting of just the opec cartel members will they were they had come to an initial agreement with many ministers saying that it would translate this agreement would translate into a real increase of somewhere between six hundred thousand barrels a day in eight hundred thousand barrels a day to the market then what happened over the weekend was opec went out and met with its allies russia included and they ratified that deal but they took out some of the key agreements that would have shared the output increase among a number of members and then saudi arabia came out and said actually the real increase that we're going to see is going to be closer to a million barrels a day and what that really suggests is that opec or saudi arabia rather may increase beyond some of the expectations towards the end of last week at the beginning of last week we are expecting something like one and a half million barrels at he's still not that high but if you just look from friday to today and what's changed you would have left the day friday assuming that you'd see something like six hundred zero eight hundred and then now coming in on monday you're expecting something like one million and not something that's gonna hit those barrels are going to hit the markets starting in july so would be a little bit bearish this morning yeah it seems as if the market is sort of recalibrating what they're expecting in terms of real output hike here by by opec in friends we also need to talk a little bit about the banks as we often do christine this morning because mount banks may be using a lien style trick repurchase agreements to be specific to disguise their debt this is according to the bank of international settlements what's the latest on on this well it'd be i as high as pointed to some data out there that suggest that banks baby trying to game the system a little bit here through the use of of those repurchase agreements the idea being that banks tend to close out reverse repos toward the end of the quarter when they're preparing to report on their finances and what this does is it shrinks their balance she and reduces leverage now this is something that leeman did a back before it collapsed in two thousand eight it used these riposte to disguise borrowings and what the bs has observed in data is that we're seeing trends that suggest the same kind of thing is going on and is warning that this kind of practice is a negative risk for financial stability and is warning that this should not continue to go on from here dr christine thanks very much bloomberg daybreak editor christine harvey coming to us live from dubai by the way you can get a look at all the stories you need to start your day just type d a y b go on the bloomberg terminal let's say some more headlines now from around the world here's bloomberg's sandra kilhof good morning markus isn't his new government is cooling on all the eu countries to accept more migrants entering the block or risk zones free border travel spain's prime minister pedro sanchez says yesterday's talks where constructive despite leaders not reaching any firm conclusion was a good step forward we share many ideas many reflections indian but what i can share with you is that there are many things in common you heads of state will meet in brussels on thursday for their highly anticipated june summit results from the second round of municipal voting in italy have been announced showing a surge in support for populist parties center right mayoral candidates from the league and traditional allies for italian brothers of italy have emerged as winners in the second round of local votes in most time cities according to the interior ministry's website candidates from the centreleft democratic party have lost in runoffs including an historic tuscan strongholds such a sienna pisa and massa meanwhile us president trump has ramped up his rhetoric on immigration by demanding the end of.
