Joining us now is a man who I appreciated everything that he was doing on the Internet this weekend, man who obviously knows his stuff, Ladies and gentlemen. From ESPN. NFL insider feel you okay? What's going on, my man. Hey, I appreciate you putting some of those videos up there and also not putting my loss on the Internet. I appreciate that a lot. You put all the good stuff, not the bad stuff. That's good man right there. Let me ask you. How much and I Fanboy, right. Are you gonna try to play modest here? You're going to be humble or can I just like empty the tank on what I thought about Saturday night. I gotta empty the tank. I'm sure you guys did not want me to come on the show and just talk about Saturday night, but My apologies, Dude, that was I am a huge WWF and a huge fan of sports entertainment. As you know, have been for my entire life. We have done something at a paper view and Hartford when people could actually go to events. Together for W. W E digital Saturday night. Was the most impressive debut. For a wrestler that I can think of. In quite some time. I was not nervous for first of all, they introduced us to £140. Either You're carrying that weight better than anybody I've ever seen where that was just something they asked for, Like, six weeks. There's nowhere to put it on the right was that I I was actually 2 65 like, uh, Like 2.5. 3 months ago. I got real fat this fall real comfortable. No, Peter was safe. It did. It happens anyways. First of all this want on it. You hit. I thought that would be the apex. I thought that was your moment that night. What will you go back? Flip back onto the top Turn buckle and super plex Adam Cole, arguably, in my opinion, the best pound for pound wrestler and sports entertainment on the planet right now. I was like, Are you kidding me? So huge ups to you? That was incredible. I thought the Internet needed to see that. And I don't care if you are a fan or not A fan of wrestling didn't appreciate what you accomplished man. That was really cool. I can only imagine the rush that you felt Or in any moment of that match, whether it was the swan on whether it was the super plex even moves where you're ending up on your back, but really cool and really appreciate it. And I love what you do for David W. E. And I love that industry. Sounds awesome. See filled. I appreciate you. That means a lot. I really appreciate that. What I did not account for in the push off. Oh, my God. Let's backflip here. Jump up Super plex. Was boy, that super plex you don't read about how bad that hurt like. I mean, nothing hurt. Like a son of a bitch. You don't eat all town for that. It was a it was quite a ride there. I mean, I mean last night, watching Oscar taking one under the two the apron that was like, Geez, I can only imagine how that one felt. But do not. You're right. I guess I underestimated how it probably felt for you, by the way, Great performance by a J Hawk to like, really solid. He's got us. He's got a career there, I think in world class table tennis enthusiast Nick Marotta. Let's not let's not forget about him. Very impressive. Darius Butler was ready to go. I mean, it was a very, very, very cool Saturday. I talked about in the first hour, but how It's like 20 years of me wondering if I was ever supposed to be in there, and I enjoyed the hell out of it. I'm very thankful for everything you just said there and for posting about it because that conversation, especially with you being a part of it got massive. So thank you. Field. Let's move on. Now. Let's talk about why, whenever field Yates talks about something, ah lot of people listening because you're very good at what you do NFL insider for ESPN. You and chef here obviously running stuff over there. Let's talk about the NFL's biggest story right now. It is Earl Thomas. But for me, the bigger story is this lab in New Jersey was 77 tests for 11 NFL teams that have all come back as a false positive and there's entire cluster truck of everything that happened in there. How is the NFL and I know the labs come back and said, We figured out what it was. We got that out of there. How is the NFL handling us? Eternally ice internally? I assume there is some people that are very, very worried about this happening in the middle of the season and causing quite a problem in a workflow for everybody. So Sunday morning. Was this really interesting dichotomy on the one hand? Well, there are three players three in the entire league who are on the reserve Kobe list there about 2600 players on rosters right now, and only three of them around the reserve Kobe list, which either accounts for guys who have tested positive or have been exposed to somebody who may Of themselves have been, so That's a really good number three out of 2600. On the other hand as you illuminated, there's a really fine line here. Right now. I know the NFL. There were some anxious moments yesterday morning and also Saturday because this did also involved the testing. From Saturday. Now it happened to be that there were decent number of teams that had scheduled days off on Saturday. So it didn't necessarily cease operations surrounding practice or other work inside the facility on Saturday, But Sunday morning was a tenuous moment for the NFL. It was a reminder that as much progress as we've made, and as good of a job is the NFL has done That there is no margin for error with it doesn't take a bunch of people acting irresponsibly or a bunch of people contracted the virus. It takes one person to contract the virus for a lot of things to go haywire. And it asked this question without actually intending to do. So. What happens if it wasn't Saturday night before August? 23rd? Oh, yeah. It was. What if it's Saturday night before week for or something of that nature and that the NFL feels fortunate weeks ago? Yeah, totally. I mean, who it could be the Super Bowl. For all we know, the NFL feels fortunate that Timing was maybe in his favor in this regard, and I do think is much as it's going to suck to have to go through a lot of these things. The NFL is probably going to find some silver lining in sort of working through some of the issues before the season begins kind of a test trial that actually being a test trial, So if there was any positive coming from this, it's not just that. All those tassels. 77 of them were false positives. But also the NFL has a chance to refine its lab work and its systems and figure out some of the issues that might be diagnosed his errors right now. What was that word? You use early Die? Economy dichotomy. Yeah, You like that one, huh? What is it? What does that mean? What kind of meat or like, you know, two opposite sides of the spectrum, right? So like hole Hey, I'm just a d I C h, which is the tricky part. Oh, you're like a spelling bee master as well Highs that you're some of us are made to be super W future WWD champions and some of us were made to be spelling bee. I actually enjoy my spelling capabilities, but that one I would have got wrong. Okay, so let's just go ahead and assume that there's going to be a season and what's act like even if the NFL in the players, the coaches, the equip managers athletic Trainers, the film people, everybody that involves a football does their part. Let's assume that the scientists also do their party were testing people, and they don't bring Tova 19 into the testing sites. So let's just assume everybody is that there is a season Earl Thomas the way it was phrases. His release from Baltimore Ravens seems like the end of the Baltimore Ravens are setting up to not have to pay him conduct detrimental to the team. Which is this shield that every team hides behind. So they confined people. However, they want Teo. The NFLPA should not have let it into C B. A. It's in the C B. It's still in C B. A It's a big deal is probably meant for something, but it's used for other things like finding people for tweets and for other stuff like that, which I have learned about Earl Thomas. So now Seattle on him did not end. Well, bullets mourn him. Obviously not ending. Well. Are there teams that are going to be interested in Earl? And is he going to get paid anywhere near what he was supposed to get paid next year?.

Thank you, sir, I have looked forward to this and been looking forward to this for at least a year probably two years now and we have a mutual friend Robert Rodriguez. Who's certainly a fixture here in Austin longtime resident and I thought we would start. This might seem like a strange place to start, but start with text exchange that I was having with him not long ago where I was asking him about topics or questions that we might. Off The beaten path, and one thing that stood out, and that he highlighted was that he saw a picture of you. Show your wife. From last December at Christmas party where you and smokey Robinson were showing feats of physicality and. Robert said that his mind was blonde, because it looked like you were doing full planche and moves that you might only see at the top levels of gymnastics. I, could you speak to fitness in your life? You Bet. You Bet you in fact, smokey by the way I'm seventy, five seventy six here in a few months or a few more weeks. smokey's about eighty and he's unbelievably fit now. What people have to know? Is this and I'm GonNA quote an old blues, friend of Mine Blue Singer. He died about a decade ago was at his funeral. That's John Lee Hooker. I knew John Lee for maybe forty years before he passed on and John Lee would call me for the last seven years on my birthday every year as well as my wife calls on her birthday, and he make up some blues rift and sing it to us, and for those last seven years. My daughter Alexis race car driver and I went to his house whether it was this Long Beach House or San. Jose House Tango with him on his birthday, so he called his JP wants you to record this. I said okay. You never asked me record anything, so we went on bought when he's twenty nine. Nine dollar recorders, you plug into your telephone, you could record the conversation on a cassette tape Louis debt, so he made up. A blues ripped a really cool Blues Rep. he kind of made it up as he went along the way singing, and then he stopped in the middle of it now. What I'm GonNa tell you is quite amazing because John. Lee Hooker was illiterate until the day he died could even write out his own name. Just as initials illiterate that he died in the middle of this blues rift, he stopped and said remember. You will always be as old as your mind. Lead you to believe. And it went right back to the blues rift again, smoking my dear buddy smokey. Robinson knew that he wants to be on stage and he's one of the best performers the best singers in the world. The world's ever known smokey knows he's got to be fit, so smoking learned along the time in his life. No matter what she is that if he were to do. Not only sit ups, but raises feet up in the air, lay flat. Raise your feet up in the air, which really tightens up your entire core if he keeps on doing that by Gosh, he's going to do it for a long time. He's eighty.

"Of the newspapers. But when I was a boy I used to believe that. If we've been in the newspaper it was true but you know newspapers have slants to and then importantly we have to be very aware of our own slants and You know we tend to. We have what's called confirmation bias and we all tend to read the things we agree with more than the things we disagree with and believe the things that support our viist physician more than the thinks. It's own into question and this This is a great challenge So we we should try to read. Broadly we should try to read the newspaper whose editorial slant we agree with and the one we disagree with We should try to appreciate all the input. But I think it's this is a great challenge and You know if you if you if you read broadly and everybody on on the Internet every every brokerage and securities houses putting out its own coalpit report nowadays an see such disparage mission. By the way. There are probably. I don't know we've been you've been talking to me about question. Sedates him. There are probably a hundred or two hundred three hundred questions to bear on the future and nobody can take them all into account. So which ones do you think about well number one? Your selection of the questions to ponder will be shaped by. You're biased because you can't do them all so you know it's it's a terribly challenging thing and I think a lot about bias And says let's go back to what I said earlier quoting professional lips itch of Harvard. Facts analogies guesses You know when I read flaming investment people talking about the likely nedical course of you know I say well. Where's their expertise? But you know everybody has an opinion and you can't argue you're right but on the other hand you can't say. I am not an expert so I'm not GonNa have an opinion and You know it's very very difficult to decide these things in a uniquely uncertain environment like today's Howard. I A really appreciate you carving time for the conversation I think that We cover thousand additional topics. But I'll ask one more or maybe two more and that is what would you hope people would think more about Or what aren't people paying enough attention to in your mind is does anything. Does anything occurred you. Well in in the narrow field is investing You know most people want to hear somebody like niece. Buy or sell But it's it's a much more nuanced question than that You know you. The person who was advice has to think for themselves. Do I want to put a lot of emphasis on making sure? I don't lose money or I WANNA make a lot of put a lot of emphasis on making sure that I take advantage of the opportunities and those two things work in opposite directions as I explained before so the the person has to decide for themselves. how they feel about these things now they can. They can ask her advice. But everybody has a decide this on a personal basis and The other thing is I should buy or sell has a lot to do with Number One your current position so I mentioned that oak tree became more aggressive because we had been very defensive aggressive on so now that doesn't mean you should necessarily become even more aggressive so you know what's what's becoming increasing aggressiveness for us. They not the right for everybody and then the other thing is is the investor has to ask themselves and the tough on themselves to Spec out what their timeframe this. Because you know if you say to me how. How are we going to look in five years? I think in five years? We're going to be okay. And so you know if you if you said to me I'm GONNA put on a physician today and I'm not gonNA look at it for five years. I'd say okay. Well then you you should have a free normal. Non Defensive Investment Posture. If you'RE GONNA look every day and if you're going to get upset if the market goes down then you might want to have a little more defensiveness than normal so again. The same answer is not right for everybody because it depends on their ability to take a long-term view rather than short and their ability to live with the agenda of short-term ups and downs. Thank you very much Howard. People can find you on twitter at Howard marks book Certainly I'll link to your writing to yearbook and everything else in the show including any of the memos and references that we've made in this conversation.

"I love it I love it. I want to hit one other area before we wrap up conversation today. And and this this notion that it's it's happens now people kind of get into. Malays or depression about how state of the world is one thing but have again motivated and how to turn the corner in how we feel about sales and AL futures those kinds of things and I know you. Congratulations on your success. With the coaching certification. It's huge. It's huge and I know you're working with with all a range of business people. You just talked about a work mom you want to sell on the tip. Soukhanov for about clicking on yell you re turn it on a light again. The say there's hope. This is a possibility. We took a opened up the conversation about possibility. And I want to other some cues tips strategies that you offer folks to kind of get them. You re engage with their own lives and the community especially. Yeah you know what? This is a normal. This is not what we know to be normal and it's a crisis. It is something that has taken an emotional toll on all of this. The first thing that I share with my clients is you should allow yourself to remote in other words feel it. If one day you will wake up and you're mad and you can't explain why go outside scream if you need to punch a pillow. Don't punch anybody but get it out. Then think through what it is that made you feel that way. Okay if you journal write it down but the point is to get it out and move forward okay and once you are able to move forward and it's not to say that it will happen to three or four times in this old process that we're in but the idea is that you take the baby steps forward and move through it. The next thing that I say to my clients is I ask them. What can you be grateful for? What are you sure of in this moment? Right now again. We're talking about finding certainty inside of uncertainty so you can start with the basics. I know that L. Woke up this morning. I don't have covert nineteen practice gratitude. That's not the case for millions of Americans out there right now with thousands of Americans I should say for ten thousand cases two million cases now. Ten thousand deaths have something to be grateful for sitting in front of this technology doing higher education when some people. Your Age aren't even in college so what you need to do again. Think of what you know to be true for. Sure that you have a roof over your head you have caring parents whatever it might be that you have this technology that you have the school in the training. Then ask yourself. What will you do with the things you know to be true? Okay now that you know that you have this technology and you know that you have this wonderful higher education that you're going to be able to wield what are you gonna do with it. That's the way to get yourself out of the slump and get you to move forward. Then it becomes. How can I innovate? How can I be creative with the tools that I have right now? And that's going to open a door that you probably haven't even begun to think about because suddenly we have this white space on our hands. We call it white space. We have time you know. Some people are on instagram twitter. I'm board you know there's nothing to do. You can use this time to create so that business that you're working on that idea. That was kind of a business that you haven't started now your time to think through those things when you have that quiet space to move things forward no telling if you're consistent with where you'll be a year from now. Great Advice. I I think that being grateful is so important because we think about all the things that we tend not to have or want to have when we have to be so grateful about things that we do have the other point I would add to that is looking to those people who inspire you who whether that's authors whether that's family members could be friends could be the movie bet just every time you look at it you. Leon fired up. It could be a podcast. I mean you know many Wales. Finding Kit please and I give you one that was historic that I think your students can relate to would deny S-. Dj Denies Did on Instagram. Two weeks ago. Two weeks that was a case study in Rockstar leadership and I have to tell you why was playing music in it. Seems like there's nothing to that and yeah hundred. Thousand people showed up and Oprah the OBAMAS yet. It was huge. But let's peel back the onion just a bit. Leaders are always thinking about things three and four steps ahead okay. And they're thinking about the people who they solve problems for what they need and what they're paying points are. Dj Denies Sat there and said you know what maybe I can go on. Instagram live is my biggest platform. And maybe the people in my community to this need to be uplifted. Maybe they need to be inspired. And what do I have in my tool kit? I can spend so he gets on instagram. Something that we know he starts to. Dj another thing that we know and by the way this is the definition of disruption. Taking two things that people to a three things that people already know and making something totally new. That's what the day nights did and guess what happened like a day or two later every. Dj on the planet was on social media trying to spin. And that's not a bad thing you know you might say. Oh they're copycatting but no this leadership he now has followers. That's how that works. So how can you innovate? How can you do? Something is pretty smart. Then take a you boiling the ocean. Just just something little an incremental to help the people that you're put on this planet to help nc you were takes you through 'em and I think each and everyone of us has passion that's either it's tied to media and journalism cool leads great but it could be something that's completely different could could be. You know poetry could be singing. Could be writing could be you know You know helping your kids with their homework because you discover that in the last three weeks. Wow I can actually do this. Pretty well So I think that's I think those those among things I think we have to find those instruments and we thought little that actually a big things right now because they're kind of the skill set. I think you said another key phrase. There's like what's in your to get right. What can you use to get that that? If you do some of the steps that you just identified in the last several minutes then you gotTa Bene- five things in your to get that you can use that only to help advance your career of potential help others and most importantly which is feel good about yourself because every day when you wake up and look in the mirror that's who you gotta inspire then if you can inspire yourself and then everyone else yeah you can. You can make that happen in your family with your friends and everyone else absolutely absolutely good staff. Where can we find? We're can folks find you Michelle. I didn't and I- admonish you to get a profile and start getting active only thin. I meant Lincoln Dot com slash in slash L Michelle Smith. Very simple and then. I'm on instagram twitter.

"lincoln dot" Discussed on The Bacon Podcast | Brian Basilico - Marketing Strategy Expert Interviews to CURE Your Marketing
"A lot of smaller businesses do not understand finance. They don't understand marketing. They might understand the product they might understand sales but they don't understand the other elements that are required to run a sustainable scalable profitable ultimately salable business. So you have to understand business act next is you have to be a great communicator. You are the communicator. In chief the CIC of your organization you have to know how to package information so that everybody understands clearly what you are trying to communicate. That takes a lot of work. You're communicating all the time with your employees with your customers with your accountant with your attorney with your vendors with your spouse and so your capacity to communicate is critical aspect of your leadership skills. The skill is negotiation strategies. You must be a great negotiator to be a leader because you are negotiating one hundred percent of the time with all those people you're communicating with past. Murs your vendors your employees yourself your spouse so you must have solid negotiating and persuasion skills and the final thing is that you have be able to make decisions. Most of those decisions will be made without adequate data so you have to be able to extrapolate and make decisions incrementally and I want to give you one little secret to decision making okay. Great executives will make a decision. Only when the decision is do they will not aside early. They determine when the decisions be made and decide then and only then. And you WANNA know why they do that. Brian was most confusing to me to begin with but now now that I understand. I know why okay. It's because if you make a decision to early then you're going to have cognitive bias. Cognitive bias means that you're going to find dated. It's going to reinforce decision you've already made versus if you hold off you're not going to be impacted by that cognitive bias. Confirmation bias as real problem so instead you're GONNA be gathering lots of data before making the decision versus making decision and gathering data. Support the decision which may be wrong. Awesome so those are the seven those seven skills that you must develop as a CEO. And when you do that you're going to have a business plan because that's part of your discipline part of your forecasting. You're going to have a marketing plan. Because that's part of your business accurate you know how to create a culture because that's part of business admin and leadership skills and and presence. You're going to have time to work on your strategy. Because that's how you're going to put foresight into action and when you work on these leadership skills you will be a successful executive. It is inevitable. Well my friend once again you have delivered a plate of Bacon with a height of big on top by tacking on those seven. You know tactics that you were talking about. Yeah seven skill.

American Airlines Delays Boeing 737 MAX Once Again
"March. A seven thirty seven Max crashed in Ethiopia killing one hundred fifty seven people and shocking the world Regulators started grounding the plane and within days. The Max was completely out of the air. Boeing began working with authorities to figure out what happened and airlines also had to reckon with the fallout American airline CEO. Doug Parker said the company was ready to work closely with Boeing to get the planes back in the air. Your is your tragic events And what we care about is safety and we will work together as this industry always does to ensure that safety. He's number one focus. But at the same time American Airlines and other carriers needed to figure out how to cope with grounding of the Max while still operating their businesses Mrs it was really something of a scramble for them to figure out what to do. Reporter Alley cider covers the aviation industry industry. They looked at what would be the least disruptive way to cut flights the Max mostly flew between the New York area and Miami. You you know that's where most of the Max's were being used. Obviously Kansas stop flying between the Florida so they had to kind of spread it out and look at their network and look okay. We're flights that we we have multiple frequencies a day where we could cut one. So we're not just ending travel between two cities trimming a couple of frequencies looked at long haul flights where you can cancel one long haul flight instead of a bunch of short flights where you've suddenly inconvenienced a lot of people. At the time of the grounding. You had people who were already scheduled to travel in. Their plans. Had to be sort of offended at the last minute you know. We talked to passengers who were sort of already on vacation. And then they get a call from their airline airline that says actually your flight home has been cancelled. Then we've re booked you and maybe on a flight that's not on the day. He wanted to travel or has a stopover when he wanted to direct act. Can you tell me what all of this flight rescheduling looked like so most of the stuff they do software. A lot of it is automated. And they're still using using that software you know they're not just like using crayons and colored pencils on a big map of the US or the world but there is a lot of thoughts and analysis and expertise expertise that has to go into figuring out. What's the best way or the least inconvenient way to basically redraw so I spoke to Vasu Raja? He works the network planning at American Airlines. And from what you told me there is a lot of late nights like imagining correctly. Like people at the office office really laid and lots of empty pizza boxes and he said yeah pretty much and all. This scrambling wasn't just causing headaches and late nights for the planning team. Once they make a decision about their network is sort of ripples throughout the company there's people on Revenue Management hoped to decide what the availability should be in making sure to keep some mhm seats open so anyone. Who's Max flight got canceled? You know has the place to go. You know they tell everyone. Don't worry you'll get an email if your schedule has been changed but if you're worried about your vacation you're definitely going to call so they have to staff up on customer service and make sure there are people there to answer those calls and explain the situation so it really is this huge logistical challenge talents. That kind of ripples throughout the airline at the time I think there was a sense that could be pretty temporary but that delay would not be temporary as the Federal Aviation Administration investigated. Boeing's Max Fleet. They uncovered more and more safety concerns. I think what initially seem to some some people like it would be a pretty straightforward fixed. That could be done. Relatively quickly started to just take longer and longer as new issues were discovered and just amid a heightened scrutiny by the FAA but also regulators all over the world. You know bullying was saying it was going to provide all this information to regulators to take a look at and that kind of kept getting pushed back again and again and you know the process just kind of kept getting delayed over and over again regulators flagged problems with pilot training emergency safety st procedures and some of the planes software and as the safety inquiry stretched. On for months Boeing's estimate on the Max would return to service kept moving back I Boeing pushed it into the summer of twenty nineteen and then bowing pushed back again until the end of the year. With each month that the Max's return was delayed. American Airlines had to go into scramble mode all over again canceling more flights. They're kind of just on the receiving and here you know all they can do is wait for Boeing and the FAA to work out the process. And there's really not a lot they can do to speed things along and airlines have to make decisions decisions about the Max you know way before they really having clarity about what's going on with the Max. They have to decide over two months like seventy days before her their schedule. That's when they really have to finalize things so they can get their flight attendants in their pilots scheduled beyond that point just gets harder and harder to make changes. So you know. They've had to kind of looking to the future and think. How likely is it that the Max is going to be back? And allie says the ongoing wing uncertainty put Americans growth plans on hold. It wasn't flying the twenty four Max planes. It had and it wouldn't be getting the sixteen more it had ordered for the rest of the year. American patients with Boeing was wearing thin. The airlines have gotten pretty frustrated with the number of delays that they've seen You know I don't want to suggest that they want to rush the process along but I think you know they're just unhappy with the way. Expectations have been managed. And just how long this has gone on. Those mismanaged edged expectations were costing American and it wanted bowing to pay.

Delays in the safety assessment of the seven thirty seven MACs were piling up and American Airlines was juggling the fallout its pilots were upset because they we're losing money and peak. Holiday travel was on the horizon in an October investor. Call American CEO. Doug Parker expressed his aggravation with Boeing. They believe the F. B. certified in or quarter. It's probably best. It's that information is best case given what we've all seen. Ah over the over the course of this process so we're prostrate bullying American have been in touch throughout the year. You know American American and other airlines have made it clear that they don't believe they should be on the hook financially for this That they're expecting bowing to make them whole James extended grounding her customers or members enter. Cheryl's we're working to ensure that Boeing shareholders bear the cost of Boeing's failures not American Airlines American Airlines basically said they believed the grounding would result in a five hundred and forty million dollar reduction their full year or twenty nineteen and profits. So that's pretty significant and it's like a big step up from what they thought originally like in the first effort their first quarter earnings. They were predicting a three hundred. Fifty million dollar impact so it's been much more expensive than they were anticipating on. That call Parker said that American was in talks with Boeing about compensating. The airline for about five hundred forty million dollar hit and last week. American said it reached a settlement with Boeing for an undisclosed amount but that deal just applies applies to two thousand nineteen and the Max grounding is still ongoing meaning American Airlines is facing more costs twenty twenty. Where does this leave? American Airlines going into twenty twenty so going into two thousand twenty American Airlines has said that getting the Max flying again. It's sort of one of the biggest I think it needs to do to get on track. American is currently planning for the Max to return by June more than a year after the initial grounding but even even if the Max is clear to fly all the headaches and additional costs for American will be far from over for one thing. It'll take weeks of maintenance to get the planes ready to fly I again after they sat on the ground for more than a year. And then there's the issue of flight simulator training. I think the biggest thing in terms of time and money is that recently. It's starting to become more and more likely it sounds stats pilots. Who need to go through some kind of training before? They're allowed to fly the Mexican. Why would it pose such a high cost for American Airlines pilots would need to go through this training so first of all it was unexpected? It's not really budgeted time time for a simulator. It's just in one place so all the pilots have to come from wherever they're based all around the country and spend time in it. Can you describe bribe. What a flight simulator is like? What does it look like? They kind of look like Like in Star Wars those like like robots on skinny long legs that kind of what are they called At yeah that's sort of what they look like. Yeah Yeah I just googled it to me. That's what they look like. I'M GONNA get a lot of trouble with like a lot of people who are really knowledgeable trouble about aviation. Who aren't going to be like? No that's not what they look like so like a full motion flight simulator. They're sophisticated piece of equipment and they're very expensive and the process of getting everyone to wear the simulator is and scheduling them all for time in the simulator. You know it's just a big another logistical challenge. You know after a year. That's been full of challenges. Do you have a sense. That American Airlines is okay with some of this this delay because it's so much needs the restoration of customer confidence. I do think that safety is the highest priority for the airlines. Sort sort of making sure that everyone is confident in the plane is their top priority so they are planning to do a lot you know. There will likely be a period between when regulators liters allowed the plane to fly again and when it enters commercial service. And they're planning to sort of do as much as they can to put

"Seth Jason thanks for being here. I'm in my full don't run me over callers with my greasy sweaty guy who biked in a look. So for those of you who can't see me look for the video, that's, that's almost ever this is. Yeah. This is when the people are like, no we're happy that it's an audio podcast, we're thrilled. We don't need. We don't need to see you in the bright, orange biking shirt. I don't even have a handsome voice. Nice speaking voice. Let's move along. We've got we've got a bunch of news. And we're going to we're going to preview some earnings that are coming after the closing bell. Let's start with Dave, and Buster's, though, because first quarter profits came in lower than expected. And that's actually the first time in five years, that's happened for them. Shares of Dave and Buster's are down more than twenty percent this morning. I know they lowered guidance how much did they lower it? I mean they didn't they didn't miss by something. It wasn't a whole much that full year guidance to and they missed by a penny or something. But people are freaking out. I think once you've set up the expectation that you're going to do better than than people. Expect all the time than the minute, you don't all heck breaks loose. Hey, I on a stock that's done fifty percent or something. And he's a very clever tech company. So if you really want to know how to lose money come to me twenty twenty some percent and a day or a week, nothing but Dave and Buster's to me is one of those businesses seems odd to me that sort of still exists because you've. You've so much restaurant competition. And then you on game and food. I mean how is everybody not at home? Getting door dash food delivered while they play eight packs legends on their on their XBox. Can I answer that because you don't always want sixty your friends coming over to do that? You sometimes you just want to get out of the house. I suppose a comp comp suggests that the a slightly slightly negative flat. People aren't all add excited at least the last quarter, or so they've been getting a little growth over the years by opening new locations. The margins I was like, in the margin been kind of creeping downward for several years now. So this is not my idea of a super awesome, opportunity that free cash flow isn't really there. So unfortunately, you know, sitting there at a price earnings ratio of seventeen sounds like a bargain today. But I think it might need to be more of a bargain before it's a before it's a real deal. Glad you mentioned the cops because that was one of the things that leaped out at me when I was looking at this quarter was that they're, they're comps really. Aren't that great? The new locations. And by definition for those who are new to this podcast or new investing. When we talk about comps, same store sales by definition. Those are locations that have been open for at least a year, the new location. I mean, this, this is one of those things that is maybe not a red flag. But maybe it's a pink flag. Not just for Dave and Buster's. But for any, whether it's a grocery store, just a basic retail operation, or in this case, Dave and busters where it is a little bit of a pink flag where you go wait. So the new locations, there's the initial excitement. Dave and Buster's has opened up in your town or your city or whatever it's like, oh, let's go there. But if they can't sustain those people, and I'm wondering how much of the gross margins creeping down has to do with an increased marketing spent because it does seem like they are doing a lot of promotional stuff. Yeah. While the margin I mean, all the margins are on the way down. So I mean their food prices were going up for a while. And then we had labour and other costs going up. So, but a lot of restaurants are experienced. It's just plain old competition. You have to match prices or in, in some way or another, to bring people in the door. One of I guess, one of the challenges, I would guess, exists for Dave and Buster's is hey, it's a it's super small location without much stuff in it, right. No, it's, it's not it's a place where you play stuff. So it's not like cranking out another one of those poll as with the wrought iron furniture made out of black pipe from from the, the plumbing store. It probably costs, a little more money to build these locations, if they're not paying back so quickly. Your financial start to their other way. So I think on the plus side over the next couple of years, Dave and Buster's to the extent that they're looking open up new locations. We'll probably have more options as commercial real estate continues to face some challenges on the flip side, whenever the conversation turns to well, we think of recession is coming next year or two. You know, when I think about stocks that are recession proof, Dave and Buster's. It's at the other end of the spectrum, this is this is a business. That's done. Well for a bunch of years, but it seems like one of the ultimate discretionary income stocks. Yeah. I guess we'll find out someday. I'll predicting recessions has been a bad business. Yes. In a while. So the fact that the stock is at a two and a half year low, you're not looking at this ain't no. Yeah. By on this dip now. Yeah, I got I got a long history with with value, finger, quotes value stocks like this, that continue becoming more, and more of a value, but less and less of a value, if you know what I mean. Tesla had its annual shareholder meeting on Tuesday. Shares were up briefly this morning in part because Alon musk made comments at the meetings at the meeting. He said he say anything positive. Well, I can hardly imagine, you know what? Let's, let's be clear if he's not any CEO, who's not saying positive things that their shareholder meeting is doing a bad job of being the c. So I don't knock him for that. He said, among other things, it won't be long before we have a four hundred mile range car talked about in twenty twenty Tessa drivers will be able to use self driving features without intervention. I it seems like you just look at the stock chart today, there was some initial enthusiasm stock. Doc was briefly it's now down a couple of percents of problem. If you if you say things that don't turn out to be true often enough, sometimes people stopped believing you it was more than two years ago that Elon Musk promised us that you'd be able to sleep in your tesla while at drove across the country. And everyone believed it then, and then, you know that never happened, and then he kinda dials things back and then a couple of months ago, he doubt things if he said, four sure there will be a million robo tesla robo taxes on the road, you'd be stupid, not to buy any other car, which is just laughable. I mean, consumer reports a couple of weeks later rated autopilot, as dangerous and more difficult to drive with than just driving yourself because it was so erotic. And now we have a couple of months after that autonomy day, which to me, seemed like a smokescreen designed entirely to try to shift, the sentiment of the, the company away from financials and towards, you know, hey, we're going to become an Uber competitor and now. Now, a sort of walking things back and saying self driving without user intervention. But also at the same time supervised robo taxi, which, by the way like Waymo is doing that right now in that exists in other forms? And he just makes these promises that don't match up that don't line up with the reality of what other self driving car leaders are saying and what they're doing. This is a really difficult task and it's not just a matter of getting a couple hundred thousand or a couple of million more miles. There's real diminishing returns for machine learning for doing this, and they have not cracked, this not yet in Tesla's doing it with more. Limited hardware than other companies is nobody else trying to do it their way, which tesla true believers would say, well, that just shows a genius. Mosque is I tend to think that if he's the only one doing it this way, and all these other really smart people are seeing you probably can't do it that way that he's probably the one who has it wrong. So very interesting shareholder meeting. There were some other comments that stood out. To me, Tesla's shareholders are obsessed with the idea that there of being victims. They love this idea that they're victims of a media conspiracy, which is hilarious because they are the, the beneficiaries of so much media incredulity for years. I mean nobody nobody looked at mosque and said, can you really do all those things until recently, now, of course they don't like it. I one of the remarks of something about, you know, it's crazy. The media talks about you is if you're about to go bankrupt, and he says, you know, of course, we're not that's just insane. Except not too long ago, everyone thought they would need to do that. They were running on a cash and must claim they weren't. And then after they had a quarter or they got some free cash flow. He came out and said, yeah, we were only a couple of weeks away from running out of cash. So they wanna have it both ways. It's really nutty. And to me, it's the kind of stock where I wouldn't take a real position in it either way. Because on the one hand you have a CEO who's very comfortable saying things that are not true. And you have a lot of other executives leaving the company probably related to that on the other hand, you have this rabid shareholder fan base. That makes the stock whip Cy it's completely detached from fundamentals. It's all about this crazy personality, not for me. You just reminded me of. The Alex give new documentary that was on HBO and for for those who haven't seen it. It's a it's a fabulous bit of documentary filmmaking about theranos, and Elizabeth homes. And one of the things that. Was noteworthy to me in that was the opening of the documentary. That was a decent bit of information about Thomas, Edison, and sort of, you know, sort of tracing the line of the Silicon Valley, fake to you make it mentality back to Thomas Edison, and saying, you know, Edison did a fair amount of that. Like, there's, you know and, and, and that's, that's a tried and true practice that, you know, didn't didn't start with Elizabeth homes. It didn't start with the Elon Musk. And you know that, that kind of thing goes on all that being said they report earnings second quarter report is scheduled to come at the end of July. It really seems like on the times when tesla has come out with, like a legitimately, encouraging slash great earnings report. A lot of that other stuff just disappear. So and by the way, I'm like you, I don't own shares. I would never know millionaire short stock. I'm on the sidelines just watching all of this play out Noddy and. I just sort of think, to myself. Well, you know, no one ever gotten trouble for walking up to bat and hitting home run. And if they don't, if they come out at the end of July and have some blog quarter, and that, then that helps. Well, of course you have to do it. Yeah, but, you know, the miracle quarter was it was to a large degree, and it wasn't really spoken about at the time. The cash flow quarter was was a artifact of really massaging working capital and calling in some favors. And so you wonder can actually keep doing that. They raised money following the miracle quarter because they needed it. So the suggests that they couldn't keep doing that. It's not easy to build cars. It's not easy to build cars, and you also tell everyone you're going to build self driving electric trucks and all of this other stuff. So maybe they pull it off. I really hope the industry goes, but they have a lot more competition, coming from all the other manufacturers, and those manufacturers are not stupid.

NYC to Be First US City to Use Congestion Pricing: How does it work?
"On the show congestion pricing. This is basically the idea of taking one part of a city, you know, maybe the most crowded part of the city and charging people to go there today on the show. Does it work who's doing it and is coming to a city near you? Also, how long is it gonna take me to get across town? Okay. So we should try to hail a cab. Oh looks like there's some Cavs. Oh my gosh, right away. Hi. We're just going all the way across town to the west side. No. He just looked at us. Like, we were insane.

Today's indicator is to that is how many miles it is from one side of forty second street to the other so across Manhattan, the horizontally, so this is deep midtown. The beating heart of overcrowded New York, forty second street goes by Grand Central station time square port authority bus terminal. It is one of the most heavily traffic streets in the. Yeah. This two miles roughly twelve blocks is a treacherous stretch. So treacherous as Dr I discovered some calves will not even drive it. It's a nonstarter for some cabs. But we finally did find a heroic cabdriver who would take us Muhammed Sharif. He's been driving taxi in Manhattan for about six months. Now, what is it like driving a New York? It's. Restarting time, we're gonna see how long it takes us to get cross town, and it is four thirty five pm definitely rush hour. So this congestion pricing plan was passed by the New York legislature. But it won't be put in place for a couple of years. We asked Muhammad if he'd heard about it. What do you think about that? I'm not sure you would say would lectured us at fake or that like to make more money. How much? Actually, it's both. According to Bruce Schaller, he's a public transportation consultant here in New York. Do you think it's a good idea for New York? Yes. Reduced congestion the city because charge people some people will decide to take the bus to come in and said driving, and the Secondly, it raises very badly needed revenue for public transportation. We've had what we call a subway crisis for the trains are overcrowded. There's a lot of work to be done. And we need the funding to do that a lot of funding. It's estimated that New York will need to spend tens of billions of dollars to fix the subway system and congestion pricing has proven itself to be a really fast effective way to raise money says Bruce places like Singapore, and Stockholm do it London rolled out congestion pricing. And they've seen speeds increased by thirty percent checking in were just passing Grand Central station. We have been in. Cam for six minutes, not bad. It's been a nice, right? Honestly, making pretty good time. There's still plenty of details that need to get ironed out. Not least of which is just how much is this toll going to cost New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo suggested a flat fee per car per day of about eleven or twelve bucks and twenty five dollars for trucks. But there will be some exemptions. The state has already approved breaks for emergency vehicles for people with disabilities and other groups are asking for exemptions. As well delivery truck drivers, livery cab drivers motorcyclists police officers, and that could really affect how much money the congestion pricing plan brings in and at least in Muhammad's view. If all these guys get exemptions. It's not gonna help traffic at all or raise much money. Right now, we're in a very familiar part of town right by the new York Public Library and Bryant park where the New York office of NPR's high indicate high NPR IMP are. Yeah. There's the shut the place the terrible music. Salad place. It has been fourteen minutes on the doc. Okay. Okay. In a we're making

I'm Ali would. In twenty eighteen ICO's or initial coin offerings were the hot new thing in startup fundraising. Accompany could raise money by selling you, a little bit of value or equity in the form of digital coin. That is kind of like a bitcoin but specific to that company ICO's raised something like twenty two billion dollars in two thousand eighteen we think it's hard to know because the whole practice was totally unregulated. A lot of ICO's turned out to be scams. The SEC started finding celebrities like Floyd, Mayweather and DJ Calot over sketchy paid promotions for ICO's. It got a little weird. And now, it's regulation time. And that means that future ICO's and their digital coins might start to look a lot more like good old fashioned stock except traded on the blockchain, and that has big ramifications for Wall Street, Kristen howls, a partner with the law firm, FOX Rothschild. She helps companies create an ICO the SEC started to really crack down on this last year large. Really, I think because of massive fraud and theft and with this action people that have had to shift their pro choice to this ICO two point. Oh, also called a security token offering where they split this token idea into two things they issue stock as part one of this. And then part two is they may be they don't have to go. Have this token that does everything but stock and so on the first part of that it's issuing stock in blockchain form, and then it will trade on the blockchain. So that you would buy and sell it as though you were buying bitcoin. But in this case, it would be, you know, Kristen coin. Yes. And no, so yes, in the sense that you will buy and sell on an exchange, but you won't buy and sell these on the current exchanges that trade, for instance, bitcoin and all these other tokens that are still out there because those exchanges are not licensed trade securities. So a lot of really big players, including Goldman Sachs, and NASDAQ and a whole bunch of other people are in the process of building token security exchanges. Interesting. So I'm hearing you say this, and it sounds like there's functionally no difference between trading secure token and trading. A stock accept the possibility that the company itself is not technically public. There's a couple of things there. So on the trading side. I would go out on a limb to predict that all-stock will be traded in some way related to blockchain or or whatever the next best technology is because it's superior to what we're. Doing. Now, you can have a lot better transparency in the market in two stock pricing volume. You could also potentially eliminate some of the metal people where you don't actually need all these these folks in the middle, which of course, brings the resistance to change because broker dealers and others have a vested interest in a system, but we can have a much more seamless actually transparent stock trading mechanism using blockchain Kristen howls partner with the law firm, FOX Rothschild. Now, the SEC has clearly said it thinks digital tokens from companies are securities, but it hasn't issued any formal rules. Just yet. And now for some related links. What's kind of doubly interesting about this idea of ICO's going legit as these so-called security tokens and potentially changing the way Wall Street works, and maybe even becoming the future of stock trading. Is that kind of everything about bitcoin and the blockchain was conceived to be just the opposite of all of that. And the bitcoin community feels that part of what really killed the ICO. Yes. In addition to the scams and the fraud, which everyone admits where a problem was the threat of regulation, which is what we're now seeing and that in fact, that's kind of a bad thing because I see os were a much more democratic way for potential startups to raise money, they didn't have to go through venture capital, which has all these problems with access and diversity geography, and of course, centralization and now the same old gatekeepers get to keep all the power.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. A Molly would. All this week. We're partnering with seen it reviews. Talking about the big trends in consumer technology as we head into the holiday shopping season. And it appears that the smart home is finally a thing for a lot more people in two thousand seventeen almost twenty five million smart speakers were sold, according to the consumer Technology Association. So far this year nineteen million more smart speakers have already shipped and holiday shopping has just begun. And once these gadgets are in a house they can act like a gateway drug people buy more connected devices. So they can have Alexa, or Google control everything in the house. Rich Brown is an executive editor at c net reviews, covering appliances, and smart homes. He said this year smart devices are migrating into the kitchen now that WI FIS a little bit more ubiquitous, and that frankly that technology's better on on the side there may be a little more for real. You know, I'm not sure how many people are actually using these voices systems. To help out in the kitchen beyond basic stuff like set a timer or make a shopping list, but we have found that the recipe function with Google speakers. Especially in the Google smart. Displays is actually really good. Like the way it responds to your voice commands is actually pretty intuitive or it can pause when you're working through a recipe can pick up where you left off when you resume the conversation is actually very a very natural way to work with the machine to make something in the kitchen. What about the the privacy debate are seen it users coming and saying, okay, sure. But I'm only going to buy the one that doesn't have a camera built in all the time privacy is huge. And that's probably the thing we hear about most and reader comments. Right. So the Facebook portal video chat device that one. I mean, come on Facebook put that out there. I'm not sure what they were hoping for. But anybody who's sort of predicted that there would be a lot of consumer resistance, and the reviews would be critical given Facebook's own privacy issues me, I think they call that one. Interestingly Google has that that can. Free display like all the home hub that just put out a month or two ago. And that one has all the functions of the other smart displays, but no camera. But you know, the privacy concerns, we only have these companies for the most part at their word in terms of what they do with your data, and how will they protect it. So it's leap of faith for consumers for sure. How about some of these other sort of nascent parts of the smart home, like smart locks is that something that is appealing to the mainstream. Consumer or does it just mean, you're also giving tech support along with your gift? Yeah. I would be really wary about giving anybody a smart lock as a gift unless you're you're pretty good at installing that kind of thing. If you're thinking about other smart, home, stuff, smart security, and smart cameras. Those are pretty popular as a category in general, and the cameras are really pretty easy us kind of plugged them in get them on the internet. And then you can view it over your phone. There's no real installation that needs to go unless you want to attach to a fixed point on your wall or something. You know, it sort of depends on how much screwdriver time you want to take on or how ready you are to hire. A contractor to come in for somebody. Rich Brown is an executive editor at c net reviews.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. It is thanksgiving week and the official start of the twenty eighteen holiday shopping season. So all this week. We're partnering with the online tech reviews and news sites c net to talk about the big trends in consumer technology this year net did a holiday survey asking its users what they're thinking about when it comes to tech. And this year the research bears out what the retail industry has already been saying it's going to be a big year for shopping, especially in tech Lindsey Turrentine is the editor in chief of c net reviews. She said it's not just about giving gifts. Either sixty percent of the survey's respondants plan to shop for themselves. Why all the self gifting well in a word sales things are cheap. I mean, that's really it. You know, what you want? Everybody knows what they want. And then you see this parade of cyber week. Black Friday cyber Monday deals. It's really hard. Not to be like, well, actually, I kind of want that expensive television. And I'm not gonna ask mom and dad for that. This is the moment. It's never going to be less expensive so nominal buy it for myself. Yep. The survey also found that twenty five percent of shoppers plan to spend more on tech this year is that do you think also because tech is getting cheaper. Or is it just more mainstream? I think it's just more mainstream. So we found that more than ever people want to receive for instance, smart watches, it used to be that cell phones were the top of our list now smart watches or at the top of our list. And we're finally reaching a point especially with apple watch. Let's be honest where it has reached mass adoption lots of people have them. It seems like a, you know, a quote unquote, normal gift not necessarily a nerdy gift. It's just a gift. Was there? Anything in the survey that particularly surprised you. I think that it is interesting how many people want to give or do give subscriptions to Amazon prime. It's a very specific surprise. But it's also a very specific thing. And we it's not uncommon to give subscriptions to things. An easy gift to give especially at the last minute. But we found that the most common subscription gift for people in our survey to give is a subscription to Amazon prime. So it's very meta. Like, oh, give you a subscription to something that allows you to give to other people. Let's talk about this sort of the industry broadly. Are there any surprising shakeouts with manufacturers? Are there brands that are pulling ahead that you didn't see coming or or companies that you're looking at the survey results and saying like, maybe you need to worry more than you thought. You know, I would say that in the smart home category. Google is catching up to Amazon, maybe even faster than we expected to Alexa, really was the stand in for smart home speakers in the past Google's catching up really quickly. We've seen them named. I think that apple well, obviously, a common gift brand. We are seeing a lot of interest in non apple phones, Google pixels. Getting a lot of attention. So we're seeing some up and comers. Start to pull ahead a little bit. Lindsey Turrentine is the editor in chief of C net reviews, you can find links to that holiday shopping survey at our website marketplace, tech dot org tomorrow.
