"It's here and now Have you been to calls the department store lately The one near me in the Virginia burbs not a lot of foot traffic But something interesting is happening there And if you look closely there's a line of potential buyers for the discount chain Why Well Mark Stewart covers business and economics for us and Mark what's the buzzer recalls Why is it attractive First of all location It's a big part of it Kohl's has more than 1000 stores in 49 states You know you often see them in strip malls or on the way to a larger mall So they're easy to get to But in addition Scott these are stores that are only one story tall just one big floor And that's actually a very big deal according to Joshua Williams He's an assistant Professor of fashion management at Parsons school of design here in New York We just find that customers aren't going up to the floor two or three or four And in many cases that means a lot of product is just not being seen by the customer So Kohl's is all on one floor which means that when you walk in you can scan very quickly You can see things and know if what you're looking for is available So Cole seems to be doing something right here Mark If the company gets sold to a buyer is a regular coal is going to look the same or might it be different That is to be determined There's been a lot of talk about JCPenney having interest in the store that was initially reported by the New York Post I've not independently verified that or heard back from them but broadly speaking I mean there's always the potential for change Kohl's has had some successful partnerships with Sephora the big cosmetics chain It's been a place where you can return your Amazon purchases So what would all of that look like in the future Also if you go to a coal store I mean in the past there's been a lot of brand names but there's also been a shift in retail to create private labels Those are some of the questions that could come up if there is a shift in ownership or leadership And it's interesting chapter at Kohl's does it tell us anything more broadly about where the American department store is headed Well clearly things are changing to an extent especially post pandemic but department stores I think Scott will be a part of our lives in some form Take a listen to retail analyst Stacy woodlands The consumer loves a treasure hunt They love to physically be out there and discover I think online will kind of settle in the 35 40% range for apparel maybe 50% for some brands So Scott I think there will be some kind of compliment between a traditional store and then the online shopping experience at home We'll see Mark Stewart is business and economics.

"Carter, huge jessamine, Dustin Brown, Brent seabrook, Robert Nielsen, Steve bernier, Zach parisi, Eric Farr, Ryan gets left, Brent burns, Mark Stewart, Mark Antoine, Ryan Kessler, Mike Richards, Anthony Stewart Brian Boyle, Jeff tambling, Corey Perry, Patrick keefe, and Sean bell. You know who I would take if I had to redo this draft first overall? Patrice bergeron. Take it in the second. Really? Taken in the second round, 45th overall by Boston. Okay, fair. And gets off number two. You wouldn't pick flurry first? No. Oh man. The goaltending is such a, that's such a good base. And he went on to win three cups, not saying he factored in two of them. For reason my top three still, but I don't know. It's like personal. I guess you could really argue bergeron or get stuff. And I think if you could redo it, most people would say, or Weber, Weber shut down as well. Boom, that's how I was going to say webby, man. They had big D, you build around Jared type fucking demon. Absolutely weba. Wow. Well, that was a fun little game. Yeah, all right, moving right along. Another Hall of Fame. Marion hos, his number 81 is going to be retired by the Chicago Blackhawks sometime next season, a date has not been announced yet. He officially retired on Thursday as a Blackhawk after signing that one day deal so he didn't have to retire as an Arizona coyote. I think that's where they shipped this car. He's the 8th Black Hawk to have his number retired 1134 points in 1309 games played, of course, he won three cups in Chicago, also played in three straight cup finals with three different teams. A trophy is the only guy that did that, but that's a pretty distinctive thing. Do you have any coyote? Jersey retirement night as well. They should match the pronger, datsyuk. Yeah, that we should just, we should put the statues up to now, get a good deal, like a three pack combo. You know, get a little bargain on it. Maybe it's one of those statues where it's like a horse bottom and they come out as like the different heads. What do you call those things? I have no idea. Do you know what I'm talking about? What like a person in the top and horse legs in the back? Yes. I think is it a minotaur? Am I sure I think? I think I'm in a tour. Let's do a mentor. There's another Hall of Famer that kind of just calling it quits. Do we got that? Doug Wilson, San Jose. After 19 years, Doug Wilson stepped down as general manager of the San Jose shocks. He's not retiring, so he may pop up elsewhere. He's just the fourth guy in NHL history with 1000 games played in 1000 games as a general manager. Even though they haven't won a cop, he definitely built the hell of a contender there for a long stretch. Only Pittsburgh and Boston have won more games and have more points than San Jose while under Doug Wilson. Only the pens have appeared more playoff rounds, 31 to 30. They had 5 Western Conference final appearances. They got to these 2016 Stanley Cup before they lost the Pittsburgh. The team, they said they're going to take their time finding a new GM owner hassel plattner. He doesn't want a full rebuild. He wants someone to come in and take over this team right now. They have cap isn't tough shape though. I sent the link over to you guys. He's going to have some work to do, whoever the new GM is, but any words on Doug Wilson stepping down. Well, I think it was Eliot Friedman was saying that John Ferguson junior, who's the assistant with the coyotes might be one of the frontrunners. And I think the comments from ownership were, they want somebody who's maybe a little bit more vocal and more of a presence and maybe talks to the media more. I think Doug Wilson, first of all, unreal job during his entire time there. I would say probably one of the top GMs found it fascinating that they've only had two GMs in the whole length of the franchise. I don't know if you mentioned that off the hop and you talk about the sustained success. Western Conference Finals you had 5 of them, one Stanley Cup finals, you had one president's trophy and they'd be playoffs 14 times during his 19 years. So a very, very impressive run. I think that the some of the deals maybe as of late would have, you know, we're still going to see how that ends up transpiring, but overall body of work fucking hell of a job man sustained excellence and enjoy retirement, well deserved. I don't know if you would say a Hall of Famer as a general manager too. Is that fair to say what you need to win a Stanley Cup to get that consideration? Probably, but I mean, I think the run he added to be that good of a player 8 time all star Hall of Famer Norris trophy winner and to turn it into being able to build the team that successfully it's just an amazing run by him and I hope everything's going on going well. I know he took a step back and nobody really knew what was going on. I think he's pretty private, but yeah, it's just a hell of a career on both business side and playing side because he's been able to really kind of figure it out and build a team that so many people picked up to win Stanley cups. They couldn't get over the hump at socks, but it is interesting, but it's like where they go from here because they've handed out they usually didn't hand out long-term deals and then they gave 8 years to burns. They gave 8 years to Carlson they gave 8 years to get sure they just gave 8 years to hurdle. They gave 8 years to vlasic. So they were chucking them around constantly and it's been a tough little goal, but like the owner mentioned in terms of not wanting a full rebuild, I wouldn't expect that because I don't think if hurdle heard that that was the plan, he would have resigned. So they're going to have to open up cap space to probably going to have to buy out vlasic. They're going to have to make some tough decisions there personnel wise because there needs to be a turnover and a quick turnover if they don't want to have a full complete rebuild and talk about a fucking man rocket, too..

"Are reinforcing safety and prioritizing it or even prioritizing life work balance it's a tight labor market employers really have to listen to what their employees want and where they're gonna feel more comfortable with so much concern from employees wilder workplaces. Look even more different than they already are. We're already used to social distancing and mask policies if you're going into an office that's a really good question and companies did already invest in retrofitting. Their offices. Everything from sanitizer to barriers plastic barriers and social distancing as you said and what we're going to see upon return is even hyper vigilance about that. Maybe companies will who had plans for a certain amount of workers and certain days may even be more restrictive about that mask in the offices. A really big debate right now on social media especially with vaccinated people and now with the recent guidance about wearing masks indoors. Employees are really wondering. Am i going to have to wear a mask on the office. And in fact we did see some companies yesterday including facebook target and home depot. Say they'll start requiring some workers to wear masks regardless of their vaccination status ray. It seems like this whole idea of uncertainty and change could be an ongoing part of participating in the workforce. That's right it could really be more so now than before primarily because the delta variant has thrown in basically a wrench into the previous plans and companies employees have learned a lot about how productive people can be when they're working remotely and questioning whether they really have to be in person in the office. But it's going to be a challenge to those companies again in a tight labor market. Especially if you're not offering lots of flexibility for employees to work wherever they want to work from or what what days they wanna come in. So i think we'll continue to see just based on interviews that i've had with experts hybrid more flexibility and maybe those tools in terms of the in person safety guidelines and layouts may not be enough for some employees comfort. So that's a long way of saying. That flexibility is going to be a key word on the minds of employers for the foreseeable future until we got this under control. Ray smith joining us this morning.

"Know there's a feeling that you can't have this mood of excitement expressed so much in a sort of big show Lots of razzle-dazzle. You know they're going to make it there's going to be fewer people involved less of the sort of masquerade graft dancing so they'll be more of a feeling of you know sort of almost like a somber mood in in a way or they do tell us that they'll be fun parts of the show as well so they're trying to kind of pitch it at the right level so that people feel that it's not kind of over the top when you know average people are oversee still feeling that their lives are impacted by the pandemic but they want people to have a good time so it's quite a struggle really to find that balance. I want to talk about the economics of the games for a moment. Japan had high hopes Hoping to see a return on its investment. Now it's proving to be very costly. Just how expensive has this become. And who is paying for all of this or the original bid for the olympics said it was going to cost around seven billion dollars. The official budget now is over fifteen and the government board of audit here in japan. Says it's probably more like twenty billion so it's you know it's increased sharply Most of that is being funded by the japanese payer. Also japanese businesses have chipped in as well They spent more than three billion in sponsorship of the olympics. So it has been very costly. You know the return on investment investment was meant to be mainly from foreign spectators coming in and spending money in hotels and restaurants and places like that. Of course there will. There will be no foreign spectators here. They'll be almost no spectators tool because the japanese allowed to go to almost all of the events. So you know the cost really is something that the tax payer has to bear and probably will for several years to come and finally allaster. We know how fragile things can be during the pandemic. Is there a contingency plan if things deteriorate during the games we've already seen a number of athletes test positive that's right. We have seen athletes test positive. There is a still a rising count the daily infection rate here in japan amongst the public so there is some concern that things are heading in the wrong direction. However the organizers of the event say that the plans that they have in place will ensure that there isn't a spread from these cases that are popping up in places like the olympic village. They say that once cases have found athletes quickly quarantined. There's testing every day. So the hope is that this won't spread. Even though they say look we are going to have these positive cases but we think it can be controlled and that's really all. They've said they haven't said what they will do. If it does get out of control. There really isn't a plan b. for this. Of course you know things were to get really bad. You would have to think that the games couldn't continue but no one is willing to discuss that right now. Allaster gail in tokyo. Take care and we'll look for your reporting in the days ahead. Thanks back and finally cove in nineteen shutdowns forced olympians everywhere to rethink and redesign their elaborate training conditioning and practicing regimens in many places gyms were shuttered for months and social distancing was strict so the best athletes in the world had to figure out how to still stay in shape and prepare for the biggest moments of their lives on the fly. Here's journal sports reporter louise radnofsky. They heard about wrestlers who were practising in a police station. We heard about an artistic swimmer. Who was using a kiddie pool to not lose her familiarity with water wearing a nose clip just to make sure she still remembered how that felt. We heard a lot of stories of people who were doing trainings over zoom particularly for group events that you couldn't get together in person to practice we heard of olympians who were running on freeways pretty much everything and that's what's news on a friday morning.

Trump and Biden's Diverging Visions for American Foreign Policy
"In our ongoing election coverage were taking a deep look at how president trump and democratic. Presidential nominee Joe Biden differ on major policy issues. Today, we're going examine foreign affairs mark. Stewart spoke with the journals national, security reporter Warren Strobel. A lot of attention in recent days to the Middle East obviously president trump is touting success with peace accords with Israel. Let's talk about the trump approach versus the biden approach. Yeah I mean in the waning weeks of the campaign here Mr Trump has secured really historic agreements from the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to make peace with Israel and recognize it diplomatically big achievement. No. Matter how you count it. I think most people would agree but there are fundamental differences between the Republican Democratic candidates particularly when it comes to Saudi Arabia Mr Biden has said that he would review relations with Saudi Arabia, which is probably the most important US ally in the Middle East that he would consider stopping arms sales he's been very critical of their killing of the journalist dissident. Jamal Kashogi Mr Trump on the other hand has declined to put pressure on Saudi Arabia. Really. In any significant way he sort of dismissed defining by the CIA that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman probably ordered the killing of Mr. Kashogi and he has vetoed congressional moves to limit arms sales to Riyadh. Saudi Arabia obviously issues in the Middle East but also Iran. Let's talk about the different approaches there. Yeah. Here again, that's quite a stark difference Mr Trump. Two thousand seventeen withdrew from the Iran nuclear accord known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on. He has launched a campaign of maximum pressure designed to limit Iran's ability to cause trouble in the region and try to force it back into talks. He's also by the way in recent days Mr Trump has said get reelected around will come to the table and we can make a deal real quickly. Mr Biden has said he would go back into the nuclear agreement. He would get the United States back into that agreement if Iran also returns to compliance. So again, Joe Biden is tough on Iran but he is much more. I think looking at diplomatic track to try and halt their nuclear program. Another region of interest is certainly Europe. Obviously there are economic issues, their political as well as military issues. When we look at Europe, how big of a role does the relationship with NATO play in this discussion? You know I think it plays a significant role. NATO's the probably the most important and one of the longest standing alliances that the United States has. Important economically in terms of the trade between the United States and Europe, and important strategically given its role in sort of countering Russia Russia intervention in places like Ukraine Belarus. Again there's differences here though Mr Trump has been pretty critical of NATO. He demanded that all the countries live up to. A promise they made to spend two percent of their GDP. Self. Defense, and there have been rumors that he might withdraw from NATO entirely or want to. This is Chris from Mr Biden who again stressing the importance of good alliances with Europe and other parts of the world. You. Briefly mentioned Russia, where are the distinctions in viewpoint and policy between the two candidates? That's a good question. I think the trump administration has been in terms of my reporting and analysis sort of a weird bee's when it comes to Russia Mr Trump himself. No has been quite friendly with and trying to strike a good relationship with Vladimir Putin, but the people in the middle and. Upper levels of US government agencies are taking much more dim view, Mr Putin, and actually you know the US has done a lot of sanctions and other actions against Putin during Mr Trump's terms. So there's sort of a kind of a bipolar aspect to his administration's dealings with Russia Mr. Biden. I think has been more critical. Putin personally and has said he would stand up to Mr Putin on things such as election interference the Russian incursion into Ukraine and other things like that.

"Piles of trash on the curb and the summer sun it's a distinct odor and in some cities, , the problem is getting worse during the pandemic trash has been stacking faster than usual the Wall Street Journal Scott Calvert has been looking into it and he joins us now. . Hey, , there Scott I'm mark. How . are you doing? ? Well, , let's first talk about the size and the scope of this problem. . How much extra trash are we talking about and is this happening in big cities? ? Small cities? ? Where's the issue? ? Sure. . So it really happening all over the place big cities, , small cities, , and the scale really varies. . I mean I'm in Baltimore and in July for example, the , city picked up fifty. . percent more trash in terms of tonnage compared to July of two, , thousand nineteen. . So that's a huge increase and I think a lot of cities are are seeing pretty big jumps compared to what they're used to, , and it's sort of obvious why? ? Because you know since the pandemic began in March people have been staying home and when you're at home, , you're generating a lot of trash tracks. . It might have otherwise generated at the office is now coming out of people's homes. . It's one of those issues you may not think of instinctively what is the challenge here? ? Why is it such a challenge? ? Wise it's such a struggle to haul away the trash why I think it'll be a challenge. . Even if the only issue they had was this increased tonnage to deal with the increased volume, , but it's actually a double whammy not only do they have more trash to Holloway, , but they have fewer sanitation workers to do the work in a lot of these cities, , and the issue is that you have a lot of sanitation workers who have come down with the coronavirus or they're quarantining because they've been possibly exposed or some people are simply afraid to come to work, , and so the absenteeism essentially is people being out sick is higher than usual. . So it's really a double hit more trash fewer workers, , haul it away and not only is this an issue of cleanliness and sanitation I. . mean, , it really underscores the importance of essential workers during the time such as pandemic. . That's right. . I mean I, , think this is one of those areas that people may take for granted. . You know you put the trash out on the appoint today and they come and they take it away and you bring the trash can back in and you do it again the next week. . So I spoke to to Joan she's a sanitation supervisor in Philadelphia. She's . been with the city for thirty three years and you know she takes a lot of pride in the job and she says, , she understands the frustration on the part of residents because you know people expect that trash will be picked up. . Today and but she said it's too. . It's frustrating for them that they that they can't quite deliver. . But she said, , you know at some point, , their bodies have to shutdown, , take a breather and then get back up is how she put it. . So they're they're doing their best but a lot of people are also scared of the virus worried that they might bring it home to their families. . So there's a lot going on for these workers and you know to hear her talent they really are doing their best under extremely difficult circumstances. . I think we've all been in our own neighborhood and we see some litter here and they're willing to pick it up. . Our community groups or neighborhood associations or even just individuals. . Are they doing their part to try to the trash away? ? If that's even a possibility I don't think there's a lot of that but we definitely found instances where that had been happening. . So I talked to the President of a Neighborhood Association in South Philadelphia and on two occasions so far they have rented pick-up trucks and gone around and take in. . The trash that should have been hauled away by the municipal sanitation workers and taken that to a city facility basically taking matters into their own hands because they're not sure when it's going to get picked up and the longer it stays out on the street you know the smellier it is the more likely. . You are going to attract rodents, , things like that. . Scott Calvert, , thanks for bringing this to light. . Thanks for having. . Me Mark. .
Older Workers Grapple With Risk of Getting Covid-19 on the Job
"Around eighty percent of COVID, nineteen deaths in the US, are people sixty five, an older that same group represents seven percent of our overall workforce as businesses reopened. There's a special challenge for these workers and the companies where they work. And some older Americans had to keep working even through lockdowns. The Wall Street Journal's Jacob. Bungee is covering this and spoke to our Mark Stewart. Are Any professions or any careers more at risk well, we looked at a lot of the essential functions, the jobs that needed to keep getting done through the height of the pandemic here over the last couple of months, and in a number of these people over the age of sixty five made up a substantial portion of these professions, workers and look at. At something like transit bus drivers for example, the city mass transit system is about sixteen percent of bus. Drivers were sixty five and older and other professions like ambulance, drivers or personal care also had a fairly significant number of people this age, so these are frontline individuals. That's right. These are people that needed to show up to work in some cases. You know it's a range of experiences of these folks. Some of them need to keep doing their job to pay their bills. The pension systems broadly speaking of weakens over the last ten twenty years, and so there's increased need for some people keep working just to make ends meet as they get older ages, but there's also a fair number of people that just want to work and remain engaged in their job and feel like they have an obligation. If they can work to continue doing so, so you see a lot of that as well and these people, this age group, continuing to clock in even though the risk to them, contracting the corona virus on the job is fairly substantial.

But if you lived in Los Angeles, and I know you have I mean this is what the Lakers do they chase stars? And they needed another star to put alongside LeBron James for whatever time they have him. Yeah.
