Sensory Marketing: Marketing to the 5 Senses
"Of your papers talked about this terminology. Sensory marketing so just like to give background to our listeners. What is that an is it at play in the world of beauty and personal care definitely so sensory marketing. It's it's kind of like not just color but this field of sensory marketing kind of exploded in the early two thousands Where people started to again. It's kind of like a low hanging fruit right. People weren't really studying. How the senses impact again. Our purchase behavior our consumption behaviour How we view brands and products. And people i guess a services So sensory marking basically looks at how to utilize the five senses to create again Experiences or products so I tend to focus on the visual. I like color There are people who kind of devote their research. Career looking at. How sent impacts Consumption behaviors in how you view certain products or people so all the five senses and like. It's very interesting because brands are doing it. Like brands are been doing this for the longest time But the academic world. I guess didn't really look into it in a systematic way up until like the early to mid two thousands in so for instance hotel brands right. Hotels want to have a consistent look and feel across all their their properties so if you go to marriott in chicago we go to marriott and paris when you walk in. You're going to have the same like sensory experience. The colors are going to be similar or the same You might even recognize the smell of a lobby right. These are always marketers. Used to create the sensory experience It's interesting because i found out is preparing for this podcast. That marriott actually has a signature scent they call the tune and you can actually buy like us little Sent diffusers candles all these things marriott sense you can make your house smell like the marriott which i found agreeing with like lesser news than like some positano hotel. I don't know i did not know marriott that one but okay. Yeah i got a link where i got a link. I couldn't believe it like there's all these marriott sent diffusers in candles. And i'm like okay i marriott smells like i haven't traveled in that in a bit. Yeah while allegedly it supposed to smell it it here like apple in grapefruit mixed with jasmine roses cedar so who the it sounds really nice does so that all that whole putting together a brand in the five senses that is sensory marketing. That is sensory marketing. Yes
Your Next Dive - Key Largo
"Last year my goal was to do a segment of your next dive where i featured key largo dive mecca here in the united states. I wanted to time this segment for just after we returned from key. Largo in april of two thousand and twenty. Well we all know how that turned out. We did not get there and again in two thousand and twenty one. We were not able to plan out an excursion as we would have hoped to. Two thousand and twenty two however is on the horizon. But i didn't wanna wait any longer to talk about key largo so here we go with your next dive where we travel to key largo florida. I think i've mentioned it before here on the podcast that my first is after getting a certification where with it's a dive located at the marriott hotel on the overland highway in key largo and it was fantastic. How about your first real dive being on a real historic wreck the city of washington a ship that was in havana harbor when the us main exploded and sank now. There are many reasons to choose key largo as your dive destination. Especially if you live in the eastern part of the united states first off. It's easy to get to. You can either fly into fort lauderdale. Which is my preferred airport. As i find it logistically navigate or miami which is a little closer to key Key largo you just hop in your rental car. That is if you can find one these days and head on down now. Let's talk a little bit about the dive. Operators in key largo as you can imagine being to dive. Mecca that it is. There are quite a number of operators to choose from it's a dive at the marriott is no longer operating but i will talk about two of the operators. I'm familiar with. They are horizon divers and rainbow reef now right after only a couple of months. After i did that first trip to key largo i returned and at that time. I drove with horizon divers back. Then they were located in marina at mile marker one hundred of the overseas highway and that was right next to the courtyard by marriott. Which at the time was a radison. It was very convenient to roll out of bed. Get a quick bite to eat and stroll over to the dive. Shot horizon has moved however and they are now located on the overseas highway at mile marker. One oh six. That's the dive shop in a retail store. Their boats are located about a half a mile up the road next to a place called shipwrecks oceanside now rainbow reef has taken over the old horizon diver facility at the mile marker one hundred marina additionally they also bought out ocean divers on the other side of the marina and have quite a large operation. Now the last time we were in key largo. We stayed at the courtyard and dove with horizon. We were going to go back to key. Largo in two thousand twenty and planned to die with rainbow reef. We didn't make it down there now. If you're looking to do more technical diving then. I think horizon divers maybe a better choice for the shallow reefs that i like rainbow reef might be a good option as they have those big forty six foot newton dive boats now. I have to admit that. I've never done the deeper wrecks down there like spiegel grove. Where the dwayne bid. But i love the shallow wrecks like the city of washington. The hanan bell. Also known as mike's wreck and especially the ben would. They are teeming with fish life and are great places to do fish identification and surveys. You can also experience of great dives on elbow reef molasses reef and french reef another great shallow dive through the book spurring grove. Karl is christ of the abyss. Dry rocks you can grit some great photo opportunities there. The water temperatures in key largo range from the mid seventies in the winter months to the mid eighties in the peak of the summer. When i dove in april of two thousand and nineteen. I was pretty comfortable on the shallow reefs with my three millimeter wetsuit. Only wanna do to morning dives. You can free up your afternoons for some topside adventures. A trip to reef headquarters Is interesting or you can take a tour of the coral restoration foundation and just down. The road is the history of diving museum in l. morada. I was really looking forward to getting to the museum last year and hope that i can make it down there next april. Talk about the dining. While if you're staying at the courtyard on the marina you don't have to get in your car and drive someplace you can just scroll stroll over skippers doc right on the marina. They have some great conch chowder. There and if you want a burger or some pub food than walk a little bit further down to dr sharpies shark bite grill. You'll probably run into some of the dive staff there hanging out now. Another great place to eat is the pilot house and that's located right near the coral restoration foundation very close by and and if you're in the mood for pizza then upper crust pizza at mile marker one zero one point six. Just make sure it's not. Wednesday is their closed. We made that mistake. So as i wrap up this segment. If you've been diving in key largo. I hope that you will agree that it is really a cool place to dive. And if you've never been there. I would encourage you to consider putting a trip there on your counter. I regret having taken fourteen years between visits. I'm not gonna make that mistake again.
"marriott" Discussed on Blazing Trails
"How much carbon emitting the fundamentally being able to do. The math rate is going to be important for the business right. Nobody wants to pay more taxes than they need to. So it's going to be really important to make sure that works you. Yeah and you know as much a lot of us have our gaze said on the regulatory and compliance base reporting. I actually think he's coming out our peripheral vision. There's this phenomenon with even greater speed which is going to be the need for all companies to have their greenhouse gas emissions data be negotiation grade to be ready for the customer conversations. That are coming to them when the pressure for them to do better on. Climate really starts to hit the procurement table. And so i think as much as the need for investor grade data is real and coming faster than we ever thought. I think this negotiation grade data that will really empower the customer relationship that we talked about earlier. That's going to be even faster to put pressure on this. Greenhouse gas data as i said i think some customers are already there right there already leveraging those pathways to make those decisions on at least for travel industry perspective right just to say yes. I'm gonna travel in this way. And i'm gonna make sure that this content is visible to my travelers and i'm going to use it as a way to make sure i'm driving more business to the right places and others are gonna look to those companies as leaders in this space and start kind of moving in that direction. But i totally agree with you. Patrick i think regulatory behind in push everybody along like the laggards but i think the leaders in this space are certainly there or they're getting there quickly and marriott is such a leader. I just have to say. It's why i'm so excited to have you to speak with today. Denise the quality of the data that you're able to deliver to all of your customers stay specific data for emissions energy water. Waste all of the ways you're able to break down the impact of choosing marriott. It's phenomenal. And i think the future and i think it will be for you a real competitive differentiator because as much as some of your customers are really focused on this topic right now. You fast forward just a few years and most of your customers are gonna look like those very vocal few that you have today so job. Well done thanks backtracking. its journey. Were all on it or trying to improve through time. Of course but i think again back to this idea of partnership it is the partnership that patrick and i and our peers at other companies. Have that help us. Move the needle in this space right..

This is the wrong master proposal. What is though okay proposal. That's a very upsetting. I'm your daddy. I am not a proposal. Have a proposal for you own.

Oh god see the president president rogan president rogan. Here's my thought on that. I also would like the tape of the p. to be out there. But here's the thing that consoles me either doesn't exist or doesn't exist in the way we think or etcetera etcetera etcetera. I think basically he paid some laying on a bed. But but i will say this and this is going to be one of those we've got in this time which is like you know time is not time in evidence are not the friend of the ex-president You know access. Hollywood charlottesville muslim ban. Sean spicer they're all of these things where you're like no ways it's gonna get stupid or and it always did get stupider and also in each instance. There's never a case. Well i say. Never but i bet there's almost never been a case where we go whoops. He wasn't as bad as we thought. No he's worse than we thought and it gets worse. We're gonna see a way worse. That's the thing i am saying. That is what i'm thinking. Maybe it's just really my hope. But i hope there's some super fucked up stuff. I've got that like that. Just a photo of him like i. Don king shame. But i don't like posing with that with that nine pound dildo or something like i like. I'd like to be something really really wild. You know find out that he likes to you know cnn. Wanna see anything. Because i don't want to get on. Somebody's young but he's gross and you're all just have to deal with that and you know somewhere out there. There's got to be some information on that guy. You know what. I'll even more of those molly haberman behind the scenes things about like how he gets sprayed hand. Take more those. That's all i can get but also it is nice. It is nice and it is weird to not have him be at the center of everything right now and our super worry that i'm pretre it's going to really be but i said that in passing but i e every became saying the same thing which is let's put this behind us but like what we mean by put this behind us really differs from person to person. I want joe biden to get all his cabinet people to give everybody all the money. I wanted to be able to do good things. And i don't. I don't want everybody to be distracted in a way. That isn't actually very. I don't want to be able to be distracted in a way. Where the shit's never going to happen. He's not going to get voted out. I mean in. you're not. I mean like okay. You're going to ban him. I mean he's an old dude like worst case like you takeaways benny's as features and benefits takeaways ability to fundraise against a you know a theoretical future presidential run. But i don't know. I mean that's the issue that i have is. I want so badly for this man to i. I want this man to be embarrassed. Suffered a suffer and be shunned from i want. I want him to be sad. I went on junior to be very very sad. I was like if he dies of covid. I will be so mad. I okay okay okay okay. Okay secret service. That didn't happen at queen has edited that out on him today. I said i didn't want him to die. That's always a how we're doing this. Never have i ever not what we were. I feel gross when people just dunk on the media for like playing into trump's hand and covering because it was freaky campaigning. But because everybody's got an e like maggie haberman at the i. I don't know it's it's really fucking hard and i hate it but donald trump is. I think the best entertainer. I've ever seen in my life like there is nothing more entertaining. Yeah i mean he's a kind of a classic. Las vegas act in a lot of ways like he's he's he's show he understands the proscenium effect. Look it up and But he's also really good at sleight of hand and as virtual classic misdirection. He's really. I don't know how the guy is still standing. I want to be extremely sad. I think he's already extremely sad. But i i have different sort of medieval ideas in my head about what i'd like to happen. Each family member that i will not share here but but it is a little bit saw. You just don't want them to die of cova. That's that's all we're saying no it has nothing to do with not dying you very good order. I'm talking. I'm talking about more. Like i would like jared to have a maybe a crescent moon shaped cold sore about three quarters of an inch on the side of his face for the rest of his life. And i wanted to not really ever totally scab over let alone. He'll i'd like it to be weeping a little bit him to be weeping and when his face to weep i want i want him to be a grotesquery. I would like me and thinking of thoughts. Saw me thinking of thinner. I i would like i would like to be as though he has. He has run over. America's digital woman. And i would like very bad rome roma day. I would like something very bad to happen to him. But i know i don't want anybody to just want people to be happy the wake up babe merlin's mad about something. We could also talk about pandas. One idea for a challenge. Is you talk to your therapist. About what your fucking problem with. Pandas is and. I talked to my therapist. About what my problem manatees. And how much. It is actually a bit or not okay. Okay you're like chile the cannot love. It just wants to fall to snowball. What the wrong with you. Maybe maybe pandas are to me. Like what trump was maggie..

I'm laying on the couch looking at my ipad. And she had to be here for the first. I remember the first day the first day of the new semester and the first over thirty minutes in the colleagues. I think it was forty four minutes into the call. I texted her twenty feet away. And i said be honest. Is it like this all the time. Because thirty of those forty four minutes were mostly talking about zoom and was talking about like who i'm going to get into the breakout room. And if you get thrown out you can come back. And i'm waiting now. I see. it's like out of yourself romper room when you're a kid but there's just at the end of every episode. The woman holds up this mirror with no glass in it and looks through it at the audiences that says romper bumper stop boo. I see alex. And i see matthew and i see in the names of a bunch of kids. If that's what this was like it was like the furlough. Okay ziya generis. Wendy go like i need you to get to the break up of change. That breakout room because two of the three people in the breakout room are here today. This is going on. And i peak around. She's a gap now. It's like this all the time i understand. They've already been through a full semester of this. This is merely just after a couple of weeks off off. You come back and this is so this. Is you know half over a semester into the process of doing this and that's still where they are and subsequent times she's been here. It's equally bad. It's not the teachers fault on. Abc's fault it's excruciating would say it's the fault of certain people in the united states government. But oh no. That's i mean i. There's those kinds of things during corn where it seems pointless even say because we said it so many times but i mean people like tony. Sindelar my friends of mine. Who are teachers like no this. It's like you know you can't just slap an adjective in front of a noun and act like it's the same thing as the original now so there's education what kind of education. Well in this case. It's you know. Middle school education in a you know semi urban area it et cetera et. Cetera you can add those kinds of attitudes and you can have a specialty. But i'm here to tell you but education is not the same thing online education s. He trained to do this. They had the cobbled together the equipment the curriculum alex. I've wanted to cancel well paying talks just because i'm not allowed to use my computer for the presentation. You know what i mean like. I'm crazy picky about that stuff. I know many people who do that. It's is a wild. Well it's like. Yeah i mean like you know. We talked about this in the back to work episode million years ago called. I think it's called no. You can't have a candle and like how we you know. Thank god we're not all good. Nice guy nice guy friend of the show but like you know what you're not gonna come out there and like bus balloons onstage and spin plates into the bullet trick and stuff like that. It's just. I don't know where i'm going with this but it may may my heart so heavy because i was like. Oh god and i'm just going to be that guy. I'm going to be that bad for my kids. pretty smart. she's pretty quick and she's a leader like she's the one who helps keep on track. She help people with their tech problems. She is as i said one time after a teacher call teacher said like my big concern right. Now is the emma's having to do so much of the leadership in the rooms. When i'm not around and i know how it can help make. That was difficult moral off and so that it just goes on like that. And i said you know i know. This is absolutely no constellation. But i said i am really deeply. Sorry that you are in your. You know peers are going through this. It's utterly unacceptable in every single one of you deserve better and like what do we know when you got class. Were know every kid has different needs right. I'm here to tell you. I'm a second thing because it's always two things with my kit you if you're the kid who's like doing okay and you are the key with resources and you. Are the kid cut with their own room. And you do okay on homework and stuff like that. You're not going to get a ton of attention. Or when i say attention i don't mean as in like you're dancing monkey but i mean as in like how. How can i make this twenty percent better for you like you're going to have to spend that time because of resource and time reputations. You're going to have to spend that time the kid who needs it today. If you're not kidding needs that you're gonna have to make your own way and and paste a lot of john mullany.

You just can't really over emphasize the role that donor Play in the current political calculation, and it's unusual to see so many companies on their own without a campaign to pressure them publicly address how they contribute to the current political state.

Airbnb is larger than all hotel stocks after its IPO
"One of these things is not like the other awards sesame street. Just take a look at the travel sox. Airbnb is market. Cap now. Stands at eighty six and a half billion dollars that is bigger than booking holdings marriott hilton and expedia and it goes beyond travel with. Today's gains. Airbnb is now bigger than target and goldman sachs. We could talk about money being left on the table. We talk about the huge. I stay pop but the question that we need to answer tonight is simply. Does that make sense. That i mean what you say. They're into four billion dollars in revenue. They're expecting double digit revenue growth. At least the analysts are start doing the math. I mean it's going to take in my opinion five years to deserve this valuation. And maybe that's the way the world is right now. Maybe people don't care maybe this sort of the grey fool theory thing but when you sort of look at this and look at jordache yesterday and save yourself. What am i missing i. It doesn't make any sense to me. It takes a long time to grow in these evaluations. And oh by the way we didn't even talk about but the employment Situation this country is not getting better. As a matter of fact that seems to be getting worse and although we can talk about know the summer of next year things getting back to normal a long time from here to there so in my world. It's ridiculously expensive melissa.
What if its You thats the Difficult One?
"Hand kelly as marriott person diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder comes into the first session. And says you know it's been really bugging me. I don't like to do things for other people if it's a inconvenience for me. I'm not interested. And that it's because i'm kind of super sensitive. And that's why i take it out on my partner and kind of blame and externalize and i'd really like some help getting A little more empathic aware and being able to do that in a reliable way because in reality. I'm pretty selfish. What do you think. I think my heart rate would go up and i'd go. Oh my god. This is awesome. But i i would say what's the catch. I think this does not feel real. Say that is a rare to never has never happened in the history of the human race however this is super cool. Many of our listeners have contacted us. We've gotten a lot of feedback about the course. Thank you. And one of the themes of the feedback is what i is. A covert nurses identifies. I do and vice. Grandiose like people very much have an ear for what if it's me that's difficult person and i love that and i want to compliment everyone for that. I think it's wonderful our wrap up session today. This is the sixth in a series of six. We're going to try to do the takeaways and really pull things together. But we'll have it kind of in the context of if it's you now if it's not you it's still your partner and that's what you're listening. It's easy translation. First of all for those that have reached out. We just have an amazing listener base and said you know what i can recognize myself in this. What do i do if i do. I just the fact that one can ask that question. Basically also means that there's so much great going on in new because the reason why that doesn't happen especially if you have a really deep seated narcissistic tendency is it's very threatening sometimes to slow down and take a look at ourselves. That's why we have these. Great things called defenses the come up and they protect us from self reflection but they also get in the way of so much so if you have the ability to walk in ago i think i'm still centered. I think guy. I see people in a way what they can do for me rather than what i can give to them and you can really recognize that yourself. There's so much self reflection going on. I mean by definition. It means you're not that narcissistic you're probably any of you. That are struggling with this and seeing yourself in this and asking for help with it like reaching out that way. You're more secure than you think right. And like and saying this is great. Because that's one of the big things is like i even being aware that there's a problem remember. On some of the other episodes we talked about where the hope and it has to do with. I you have to be aware it's a problem to you've got to want to change it and three you've got to actively be working on actually making that change and not. Just kind of saying yeah. I kind of wish that was different. But so we mentioned our community and how much we love our community and how smart an awesome. They are in particular for this episode. We want to dedicate it to. All of our patrons are neuro nerd community that has above and beyond by supporting us through patriarch dot com slash therapists uncensored. You guys are awesome. And we'll say more about that at the end but the specifically dedicated to you guys so in the example that we started with right somebody walking in going. I think i'm struggling with narcissistic traits. Which by the way people ever come in and say well. That's not true. That's true but we'll come in and say like a diagnosed myself is borderline or right. Like i think people do i in and i think not with this and i'll do. It doesn't start there though really really sometimes. It's we get there. Through the process of therapy. People will actually do think. I struggle with that. Yeah the more. Typical scenario is that someone drags someone by the ear into therapy to work on the relationship which is good because it's through distress. If you're sick you're not a distress. You're pretty happy typically and you're not aware of other people's distress around you so by causing distress relational distress. You can get some hope of like. Oh now they're motivated to make their marriage a little better so regardless of the kind of narcissism that you have there are some key features not very well developed that. If we could just do those things your relationship would probably improve your relationships in general and we've got the serious and if you haven't yet heard them feel free to go back and catch up. This might be more meaningful to you with that but one of the things we do know is that empathy is present. There's a new study out. That really looks at empathy and listening skills and things like that are very weak and narcissistic people with high narcissism. The question is can they be learned and this new study is very hopeful about

"During the pandemic state unemployment systems have become a target for organized crime rings, they steal money through fraudulent claims but arguably a bigger problem is that some of the systems in place to prevent fraud like that have been hurting millions of innocent people. NPR's Chris Arnold reports when Sevi- guas lost his job as a food and beverage manager. Marriott Hotel near San. Jose he figured locale apply for unemployment. This was back in March he went online put in his info waited for weeks couldn't get through on the phone after more than a month he was told to mail and more proof of his identity mind driver's license picture of my past poor copy of my w. two she said the more documentation that I could put.

A lot of this was completely unnecessary.
Oscars Best Picture Contenders Required to Meet Diversity Standards
"Since we're gonna talk about since we're going to talk about movies, this movie debuted 40 years ago. I don't not sure never won any Oscars. We can talk about a different kind of odds. And that is the odds that will be in your favor when you exhibit Perhaps the greatest comedy motion picture of all time. This is going to make it look like Raiders of the Lost Ark. This is gonna be the kind of thing that your Children because they did. I could look up to you now. I never could before. I mean, we made a lot of cheap movies for you guys that made a lot of money. But now we have spent a little more than we're supposed to. Columbia Pictures has spared no expense to make this fine science fiction comedy So they're talking about is that's Dan Ackroyd and Bill Murray talking about ghost workers that they put that out to theaters to convince them to show the movie it was. It was something they set out to particularly independent theaters saying, Hey, this is Ah, a little something you might want to consider it your little Arthouse cinema. Now you had one guy was one of the Ghostbusters was a black guy. So there okay. Winston was black. And and then one day I was Jewish. I believe Well, Rick Moranis was in the movies, but I don't think I guess later on. He was kind of an ancillary ghostbuster, the Reynolds Jewish Council's a minority. For some reason. Reason this is important is and I'm reading for The Times. New Oscar standards require best picture contenders must be inclusive to compete if you wanna win. The Oscar for best picture, and I Do You have tohave you meet need to meet certain quotas to do it, Which is the way all great art is made. Certainly we all know Novels, songs movies television shows on the best artist made with quotas. So they came up with this a couple of months ago. This is AH attempt to be more divers to be eligible for best picture of film must meet at least two standards on across four categories of diversity on screen representation. Themes and narratives. So the theme of the movie has to be inclusive of a variety of groups. And it's under representative groups, including women, People of color LGBTQ, plus people and those with cognitive or physical disabilities. You have to touch on at least some of those not only in the cast and they're talking about the main cast. Um I'll read from what it says in The New York Times those standards record, one of the least one of the lead actors were significant supporting actors is from unrepresented, underrepresented racial or ethnic group. One of the lead actors are significant supporting actor. So in that group of people that the movie is all about, you can't have if it's World War, one movie a bunch of white guys, No. No. You gotta have. I don't know, eh? A black guy funded through the trench er. At least Marriott cheap and at least 30 books. They've sent a mariachi band with clearly Mexican people to entertain the troops. Shut them up, or we're going to be bombed by the Germans. Then the mariachis district and you never see them again. Ugo. There's your Oscar bait. Joe Getty Hollywood Quota consultant from No problem I got this. You gotta touch in coming of age story sitting in Norwegian filming Fishing Village, a 16 year old boy and girl and love trying to confront their Nazi past. Let's see. Let's have the Globetrotters come to town and play an exhibition game And on one of the dates they go See the Globetrotters check. $100,000 at least 30% of all actors in secondary in minor roles air from certain underrepresented groups and the main Jenny called the Globetrotters again, and the main storyline, theme or narrative of the movie has to be centred on an under representative group to qualify for a best picture Oscar nomination, And they went through the list of a bunch of movies that might not have made it that have one. You know lots of Oscars, including 1917, the World War. In film or the Irishman that came out last year and was a piece of crap, But in very was a great movie. It was bad, but it was long. I just I just Go and find this. Absolutely amazing. Yeah, on this is from liberals. People who think art is important people who send their kids to expensive colleges to get our degrees. They want to have constraints on art. The Liberals do? Yeah. Yeah, quotas. Good luck with that. My loathing of Hollywood. Well, it could get a little more intense as it turns out, but just If if if it didn't Indicate what James Lindsay has been talking about that this is coming on hard in society as a whole. I could just roll my eyes and move on said Good, Eat yourselves. You're cannibalizing yourselves, And I think it's hilarious. But it does mean that that sort of racialist thinking where everything is broken down to your identity group. You could only get a job if you're this or you can only be fired. If you're not that, or You know, you can only move into a neighborhood. We have quotas and neighborhoods quotas that everything that's dangerous. Is there any chance that any of the older liberals because always talking about the liberals over 50 seem to have a different view of these things? Like a Rob Reiner makes a movie with like what you're talking about here, man. Just those Like, really stick his thumb in the eye of the O R. You got something, you know, three hour long Goodfellow State movie, and then then you turns out Henry Hill's wife, at the end of it says Not only am I leaving you but I'm a lesbian check. We're down here getting a Hollywood quota consultant further preceding three hours. She's been a lesbian. You just didn't know that was your biases. There you go
Despite the Pandemic, Airbnb Will Take the Company Public
"I'm Elaine Appleton grant and this is business worse daily on this Tuesday August Eighteenth David Brown is on vacation. There's no other way to say, this twenty twenty is a weird year and yeah, that's a whopping understatement particularly for the travel sector, the latest news and the beleaguered lodging industry. It looks like AIRBNB will go public before the end of the year. The multibillion dollar home sharing company has long been eyeing the public markets. Early, this year AIRBNB was planning its IPO even though twenty nineteen. had been a rough year to in the first nine months of that year and the company lost more than three hundred and thirty million dollars growth was slowing competition already rough was increasing from aggressive rival Expedia, which owns short term rental brands. We are be O- and home away as we reported here, last year the entry of Marriott into the luxury home sharing business didn't help either. When the pandemic hit things took a dramatic turn for the worse the company faced a Billion Dollars in cancellations its valuation dropped from thirty one, billion dollars in twenty seventeen to eighteen billion dollars. This April, the next month airbnb laid off. Two, hundred people a quarter of its staff. It also slowed down plans to expand into TV and transportation the verge reported. Things were looking dire enough that even though it had plenty of cash on hand airbnb chose to borrow money and take on new investment to get through the crisis in total. The company raised two billion dollars at what the verge called. The steep interest rate top executives cut their pay and the eight hundred million dollar marketing budget was slashed the New York Times reported. It all seemed like one gigantic headache I say O'Brien Chessy in his crew. And yet AIRBNB still plans to go public by the end of August. AIRBNB could file IPO paperwork with the SEC if it does shares could trade before New Year's. At first glance that sounds crazy. But it actually reflects a little good news for the travel business along with some dramatically new patterns of travel behavior both here and abroad what do I mean? We'll think about it if you were stuck in the middle of a crowded city, this spring or summer working at your dining room table, would you stay put? Beginning in May a certain number of US said Hell? No. They had a Derulo areas where they could rent other people's homes, AIRBNB bookings, both in America and overseas began climbing back from their black hole for the three weeks starting around Memorial Day vacationers reserved twenty percent more homes than they did a year earlier according to Bloomberg business was best far from the madding crowds in. June. Reservations in the countryside jumped twenty five percent hosts in rural areas earned more than two hundred, million dollars in that month alone payments DOT COM reported international travel is virtually impossible and of course many. Of US are still avoiding airplanes so more and more of us are taking vacations within two hundred miles of our homes about one tank of gas in many cases were also staying longer after all many people no longer have to get back by Monday to go to the office we just take our work with us in a meeting in July CEO Chesty expressed amazement at the rebound in bookings. There is something I never would have imagined telling you the New York Times reported a kind of defies logic, but in June reservations also grew at rival Vr be oh, the Motley fool reported. Optimists see these numbers as a sign of life for the travel industry as a whole but predicting the future of travel right now is best left to gambling halls AIRBNB is fortunes could change suddenly depending on the course of
When will the unwanted robocalls stop
"I'm curious. If you've noticed any improvement in spam calls, Robo calls all of that. Supposedly, it's been taking care of. And I think it kind of has now get ready because the silly season is upon us. You may remember a couple of years ago and four years ago six years ago when. you know all the campaigns spun up. And you would get calls every day from the political campaigns and so forth. I think. My guess is at least it's been my experience of curious if it's yours, they're not calling as much as they are texting. Now I get texts like crazy tons of texts. all the time many of them panicky. Money, we're running out of money got to send US money a lot of that. You can only laugh there's no as far as a way to block text I guess you could say stop. The FCC has implemented this technology called stir and shaken, which sounds like a james bond recipe for Martinez is in fact. What they call a caller ID authentication protocol. And They have till June, thirtieth the next year to to implement it but I think some of the carriers are already starting to implement the idea is. When a call is made. It stirred. That is the originating network attached authentication information to it, and then when received by the receiving network could be the same network could be a different one. it shaken. Both. Which means they verify? It's it's It's origination. See if you're GONNA DO SPAM Robo calls or spam calls of any kind you don't really same with spam email. You know really want anybody to know who was the real origination because then they could block you. Notice has spammers changed a phone number all the time. They usually these days try to use your area code sometimes even your local exchange. So the first six digits are the ones you recognize which is I think designed to make you think maybe it's your kid calling or the kids school calling or your doctor or somebody you know you just don't know that number. So they're hoping you'll pick up and then it goes you've just won a trip to. Nowhere. Going, maybe that's what's killing them. The timeshares and the trips. That's no good anymore is maybe that's what's killing them. There's also most of the carriers now are implementing A. Spam blocking technology I. Know T mobile just turned there's on. And and I've been using for some time apple has a feature which like the iphone I think that you can do this on Android to. Seem to remember where you say if I if that phone call is not coming from a number I, know. From my phonebook. Just. Send it to voicemail. You know and if it's important, they'll leave a message and then you can add them to your phone book if you want to hear from them from now, I like that feature. So my phone hardly rings anymore. But then I'm also I'm not a big phone caller either. I prefer other means of communication mostly none. Don't bother be it. I won't bother you how about that? What is that a deal? Okay. I call my mom once a week she's hard to get a hold of now. To mom you WANNA facetime because we usually facetime. That's the other thing. I don't use a phone as much as I'll use facetime or on Google side duo, or of course, we're all using zoom in meet in teams and all the different video calling things. That's not really a phone call. That's you know that's like a data connection. I feel like it's close to Funke plus phone call with pictures. But Mom doesn't really answer when I. A texture I because you know I, don't want to surprise her. And then you know I did, yes I'm feeling sad now. She's getting me back for all the Times I didn't call her. Mom You WANNA facetime. Crickets. So the chat room. So you saying you're still getting calls from the Marriott at least every other week says Burke. I feel like I feel like the call screenings gotten good.

Marriott swings to loss as coronavirus devastates bookings
"But we're going to start with Marriott because Marriott's second quarter featured the first loss for the company in almost nine years and yet. Shares in Marietta up about two percent. This morning is this optimism or is this The stock's already been beaten down enough, and we don't need a lot of optimism to bid up just a bit. I think it's the latter. I think it has been plenty beaten down. Let's call it forty percent for the year or something like that and. The maybe the worst is is behind it a hotel occupancy was off ninety percent in April and only seventy percent in July. So that is in one sense, a big improvement and in another sense shows just how far things still have to go particularly in this country it's got international operations largest Of Hotels and hotel rooms in the world and China is is a bright spot but the US is not and can continue to be lagging Is the expectation although the company put try to put good spin on what it could. To what extent if any did the company on the Conference Hall Talk? About Sort of what they learned in China and the way that they can. To. What's happening here in the US on starbucks most recent? Quarterly. report that was something that Kevin Johnson this CEO had talked a little bit about I'm wondering if the same applies to Marriott or Are these businesses different enough. that it doesn't really apply. Why was in and out of the call so I I can't be sure that that was covered there definitely was coverage that China I think the terminology was that Cova was not yet a thing of the past, but you know it was almost in the category of back to normal and in certain segments of the China travel normal or even better than pre cove it. So it's an entirely different story and I'm not sure that Marriott addressed what it could do what it had learned from China I certainly got the feeling that it was hinting that. the US government could learn from China and the lack of a strategy and the lack of you know the lack of strategy for how to deal with. was certainly impacting their business and they regretted that that was the case.

Some degree started the dynamic pricing trend way back when when they got rid of their charts and even before that when they started doing ranges for their top your properties yes and I know I mean Hilton. Technically doesn't have a word sharp. But it has some actual fourteen categories ranging and five thousand points to ninety five thousand points a night with one single exception so for standard room rewards. That's really what you're looking at. If you'RE GONNA go premium rewards I suggest you look elsewhere but for the most part you can look at a Hilton property in pay specific acidic mount even though it's not a published award when it comes to high at we already know of one major change that we talked about in twenty twenty. What else do you see coming down the pike? Yeah I think that this peak off peak pricing is probably heights biggest. Change certainly from the earning in this case burning side of the equation. I'd love to see how it acquired more properties. It's certainly we also been a big play for them in the last year and I wouldn't be surprised to see more acquisitions there. Do you think we'll see more hotels tells creep into that category eight to great question Hi It's been pretty good about keeping their properties in category seven and I'm hopeful that they'll stay there for the next year and when it comes to Marriott in twenty twenty summer you'll be you'll be staying at the Saint Regis again. I hope I think twenty twenty is going to be smooth sailing for Marriott. I think the last a couple of years have been marked with a lot of change and some waves but I think twenty twenty is going to be a relatively stable year for them. I'm excited that. They're getting more into the all inclusive market. which can be fun on for an easy bake so I think twenty twenty s looking good for all right? We're going to have to leave it there for today.

"Mean yeah I don't buy points because I have a bunch of transferable credit card points that I earn on my chase cards and the ability to actually get my points instantly from jas any time if there's award. Availability is incredible. You cannot transfer Amex points to hotels nearly as efficiently as you can trace too high it and and the highest award chart at the moment Max out at around thirty thousand Point four categories seven. There is this kind of category eight for some of their newer partner. Hotels tells but to transfer thirty thousand chase points for a night at a park. Hyatt in the Caribbean is incredible. Can you clarify what you mean by. Ethanol the minutes yet for sure. So starting March twenty twenty high. It will be introducing off peak and peak pricing. That's something that Marriott's done for about the year ish now and obviously Hilton doesn't have a word charge so I don't know how many points a Hilton would be ever and so what is doing is kind of what the other big boys are doing. They are introducing. This charter and award nights are going to vary based on the season of the date. But it's awesome is that its height. Who Setting those award rates so the peak and off peak determined by the corporate headquarters not by hotels themselves hotels go rogue as we've seen with Marriott bond boy the whole merger hotels can Kinda do what they want but high? It's going to try to stop that by having the corporate headquarters determine those dates and they're set once a year so high it will say. Hey this is how we predict are seasonality to be peak. Dates will be Christmas new years. You know spring break and stuff and that doesn't change so with Marriott. I make my my reservation now for six months from now and I check every two weeks to see what happens because you never know what's going to happen. It's more dynamic Marriott's peak off peak system is it's difficult to navigate because it changes constantly as much about constantly constantly said monthly Fli. Well we'll see regularly but I'll tell you so yes I don't like peak and off peak pricing and Marriott for that were it not for the fact that you know essentially all programs are doing it or about to do it so it's not really a unique negative. Excuse me is she does not have Pecan off-peak Pricey I think they are moving toward dynamic though aren't they. Hey we've heard some things that is in the works. There's been rumors but not out yet. So you can still redeem seventy K.. Points for the ENSCONCE Central Times Square for new New Year's Eve. My points three hundred fifty dollars a night for Times Square New Year's Eve. I don't WanNa buy points. I WanNa just like earn them from my cards and use them at the fancy places. So I'll say with pecan he can off-peak with Marriott. I wish they didn't have liked it when they didn't but I have found some surprisingly good deals on some peak dates left for example. We're hosting our inlaws for Christmas. Smith's and you know we live in the middle of nowhere Texas but the Marriott. There's off peak around Christmas and so it costs even fewer points than I expected. So I don't like that but but sometimes you do come out on the upside. And I'm sure we'll see the same with high when they when they transitioned to the P can offer pricing later this year. We're still guessing in. I'm still guessing every time I make a reservation because if it's at a standard or peak price chances are something's GonNa Change before So maybe it'll go down and you get some points back and you're a winner winter and it has but too often goes up there. You go all right all right folks we're GonNa take a quick break and then we will be back with continuation of the battle of hotels here on talking points that's right Julianne td staffers. We'll be back to duke it out right after this they were back and boy things getting heated. And we haven't even heard about co branded cards yet. I'M GONNA throw back to Jillian right now. Take it away. Welcome back the battle of the hotels here on talking points. I'm Julian Keel Director of credit cards and points in miles here at TB g with me today Zach griff defending Hyatt jt enter defending. I H. G. Chris Rawson with Hilton and Summer Hall with Marriott. Let's talk a little bit about the CO branded credit cards with these for brands Chrissa. We talked a little bit about out. The aspire card and a comes automatically with Hilton's highest level status it. Also if you're into Hilton points comes with some terrific airing rates. Yeah it's got some really really excellent. I think think unparalleled benefits compared to any other large hotel chains On the Hilton. Aspire you get an automatic fourteen times points per dollar but that doesn't also you didn't count the fact that did you are diamond status. So you're actually four points per door at Hilton Hilton Properties specifically. That's great but as a Hilton diamond. You're also getting twenty points per dollar so every dollar you spend with your spire card at a Hilton property. You're earning thirty four points per dollar which is just incredible in addition to airline credits resort. I could go on for days about all the benefits that the Hilton Aspera card. We'll give you you know. Two hundred fifty dollars an incidental airline fees Two hundred fifty dollar resort credit at Hilton properties. Things like that at some unparalleled. Maria Korea has a similar premium credit card the Marriott brilliant card and It's good I would argue. It's not quite as good when it comes to the credits and such. I think that's fair right. I think one of the huge values though from this card is the the fifty K.. Award night you're going to get each year. Because the properties you can book within the Marriott System for fifty K.. Points are are pretty impressive and so that alone is a chunk of the value for me but I would agree. It's not exactly the same type of card is the aspire high doesn't have a premium card. I would argue. They should lead but they did revamp their base card just within the last year or so. So what's Nice about height is it's kind of simple. You got one card. You got the world of high credit card so kind of mid tier here card has a ninety five dollar annual fee. It got a little bit of quirkiness to it and that the first thing is you can earn elite status just by having the card hard. It's not as easy as the helping aspire card so you don't just hold the card and get top tier or elite status. If you hold the card you get the lowest level of leads. Data's discovery But you can spend your way pretty easily to globalist to top to your highest status ready easily six figures. You have to charge per year to do that so I'm thinking being a of a situation where you have a small business or you're putting you know renovating a house or something or have some over the course of a year. A hundred thousand one dollars of credit card expenses you will earn a two elite qualifying nights for every five thousand dollars. You spend And you know that sounds like a lot but think about about someone who spends forty nights at a hotel in needs twenty extra or fifteen extra to augment and to supplement on that and get top tier elite status. So Zack. Let me tell you about Marianne got with. You've gotTa have fifty nights to hit platinum which they do have some higher tiers but lost it platinum and I would argue I would. Are you get more titanium titanium though. Oh okay but we're with the real world we're not. Everyone has six figures of things so to get platinum. You Need Fifty Nine Year award nights count and having in pretty much any of the main Marriott card. You're going to get fifteen elite nights credit just by having the cardinal under one hundred dollars or around one hundred dollars a year so that leaves. He's just thirty five and then they'll have double Sta- promos. I've been targeted for those at least once or twice the last several years. So when you're picking up two nights at a time and award nights nights count. Thirty five is a really reasonable number. That argue is much more within range than charging six figures on your card to get top tier status. That's totally true. But can you know look at 'em that calculation for soft that this the tiered status is probably between platinum and world of high levels aren't necessarily equal Marriott. Platinum is definitely not nearly as rewarding as globalist. But let's just take it. You know just easy calculation here assume globalist platinum or the same. You're spending thirty nights at a hotel and end with HIATT. You need an additional depend. If you re qualifying you'll only needed additional twenty five nights that you'd need charger way to you. Divide twenty five and two. That's like twelve and a half. Let's go with twelve So then you're needing sixty thousand dollars in credit card spend over the course of a year to supplement and get you to that globalist here status. There's more flexibility. It's not all or nothing exact right. That's still sounds like a lot and I'd rather put my earnings are mice expenditures on a car. That's going to be more rewarding and flexible than block it all onto one hotel program that there are enough. Let's talk for a second about the I.. H. G. Premier which I know. Jt is literally one of your favorite cars. Probably your favorite hotel card. It is my favorite hotel. It's all card. The spire is is pretty close but it's incredible to be able to pay just eighty nine dollars a year get platinum status which comes with a number of benefits yet at least twenty point. Five X Points when we used at I g hotels and chartered a card at ten on the card and then ten base at I achieve plus since you'll have have platinum status you have five more and get a free anniversary night each year which is capped but it's unlimited cap it right that's right and while it's captain at forty thousand points per night that's that's a hotel that we would value two hundred dollars to be G. Evaluations just eighty nine dollars a year. It's hard that I can easily defend and your favorite benefit probably the fourth night free. Exactly talk that I say Yeah I. I should've actually added up. How many four nine freeze? I've done this year but it it is a lot. I spent many nights for free thanks to this card. Fourth Award Redemption in the Award Redemption floating point break hotels are promotions oceans It's incredible you save tons of points on that. I want to talk for a second about what we each. See Coming in. Twenty twenty on the hotel front and and I actually want to start with. I achieved because I recently did an HD rewards stay in Frankfort at a points break hotel one of the fifteen thousand ones. And I had never seen this before but maybe you have the room. I was assigned was specifically marked literally on the door. I H G rewards club room meaning that they had put aside about about half a dozen rooms in the hotel specifically for redemptions. And when I walked in it was one of the nicer rooms in the hotel and I thought I'd never seen that before and the reason I'm bringing up as I feel that as hotels are competing as it is getting tougher to compete when it comes to loyalty programs because there have been a lot of evaluations nations that sort of individual attention. That's rewarding of loyalty I think is going to become more of a factor. Simple touch like that. Yeah why give the free redemption the worst room when you're rewarding your most loyal customer and unfortunately I've had that with Iot she In Bora Bora Seemingly the worst room which is is still over water villa. So it's hard to complain about but Yeah I haven't seen that spent about ninety nine so far itchy. You probably more than half of those were nights and I haven't seen that yet. What what you're planning twenty twenty Friday? It's going to probably do another ninety nights. Do you think probably yeah. I've have been a spike Lee. This is my second year. I'll probably requalify again next year. I'll be rolling over some nights. Thanks to surpassing the seventy five. That's needed all-star next year with a few in the bank are you concerned about dynamic pricing. Yes I am I feel like it's gotta come eventually. I'm hoping that it wants as some points points out. The pricing can be raising great value. If you're flexible and you're traveling those off peak times I liked. Simplicity of you know exactly how much you pay for a Hotel Caruso Hilton in twenty twenty. What do you think do you think? There's any changes on the horizon. What your plans? I actually do know that. Hilton is launching more luxury three properties they. It's been on their radar and the hard Bush Stu so can kind of be on the lakes of Saint Regis or apart guy. So I'm really looking forward to that as long as I'm a the hill.

Voi- and fact, you'll find that married bond. Voi- is everywhere Todd to actually find just married branding and the bond boy program. Really, I think is just that loyalty program. It's actually not the the rebranding such but what they've done in an attempt to basically saturate the market with this message about Mary bond voi- is that they've kind of confused their own branding. And so now all of a sudden, I go to every Mary website. And all I see is Mary Bon voyage. And look we can have a whole separate conversation about the merits of that particular branding. I mean, they say on the mayor. Bon Voici that they talk about. I think sort of enhancing your travel experience something which funny way, kind of precludes those people that aren't necessarily going to marry for travel. So if you're just walking down the road, your local Mariot for dinner, then this program's, really not for you. And of course, Bon voyage is really what they've done. They've sort of gone bond voice. Shortened version of bond voyage, which might not make sense. I mean to me, and I think most people Bon voyage is kind of happy journey safe journey have good trip and that Miceli associated really with holidays as opposed as opposed to business. And of course, a huge part of Marriot's guests are going to be obviously corporate guests. So again, we can have an argument about with the bond brand is the right brand for loyalty program different conversation. But I do think that regardless what they're doing right now with trying to shove this bond. Boy message down throat is actually confusing the Marriott branding as well. So marriott. Bon voyage. As far as we know is not the new name for Mariot. It's just the name of their loyalty program. It's just that. They've decided you should be saturated with that message or or right. That's it for

She should check her online. Brokerage catch you hadn't done in a while. And they said or your password changed yesterday you called in. In fact, you asked for all the paperwork to transfer your money out. Fortunately, you called them. I mean, had you, you know, did you not get an Email from them saying this had happened? Usually, that's what happened to me. They told me that the call came from my number and that they sent a letter to my Email address. And I never got it. And this is basically why unquote adds a cause for concern your numbers easy. It's easy to spoof your number. I can spoof your number right now. If I know it, by the way, this is the worst kind of attack because this is a targeted attack at you. They know about you see most tacking most malware is a, you know, a will cast a wide net. But somebody probably from one of these breaches that I was talking about earlier on the show. Got some critical information about you. Maybe you were Marriott Starwood member. And remember that big Marriott hack that half a billion accounts got out. We'll had name address phone. Oh number. Maybe they didn't know who your brokerage was. But they called around till they found the one that was right. And they had you know, they spoofed your number. So that's by the way, if the brokerages using that to verify you that's terrible. Get a new brokerage. They should do a lot more than that. Care about security measures that I thought I got I checked everything else, and it didn't appear that I they had done anything else me on my computer, Bank, or whatever, you know. They got the goal. They got the gold mine. Who cares? What else they got the money? But Leo, here's the main reason, I'm calling you know, you can explain, but I ask them how they finally verified and allowed this person to do this. They said we gave him poor multiple choice questions that were taken from public records. I think we've all had these questions that are sort of like, which these banks did you have a mortgage with eight years ago or what would? Yeah. They use. They use your credit report for that. So how they that's how they got it so answered every question correctly. And that's the thing that I just can't understand. Yeah. That's how they got it. So whoever did this to you got information about you, probably got your social. And what they asked for. They went to this was a bit of a project. But they knew there was there was a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow..

"This office of personnel management database. It's opium. It's basically like the HR department for the US government, so massive database of files on Americans who have security clearances. All right. So you have these three hacks. It seems like they're all done by the same group, and that group is China hackers working for the Chinese government, specifically the ministry of state security, which is the country's civilians by agency. It's all like everything else in China controlled by the Chinese communist party. So it looks like according to cybersecurity experts and officials who are kind of familiar with the investigations that China was behind all three of these in cybersecurity terms. This is called attribute. Trying to identify who the source of a hack is an attribution is notoriously difficult. It's really hard oftentimes to figure out who conducted anonymous attack on the internet 'cause they can mask their presence in a lot of ways especially telling for like one hundred percents certainty like you can feel like it seems like it's probably this person. But it could be this other person right now in this case, according to the New York Times private firms who had assessed the Marriott hack identified code that had been used in other recent hacks than it also been attributed to the Chinese government. So it's sort of a secondary way of doing attribution for the times. Right. You link this code to code that was used elsewhere. It's very hard to imagine anyone else using the exact same code in this case, therefore probably China on top of that. There's news this week that the Trump administration is expected to announce soon massive sanctions on China related to things including cybersecurity and they plan to actually decline. I intelligence reports that will reveal Chinese efforts to compromise American security dating back to at least twenty fourteen and that's when that big opium. Hack was secretary of state Mike Pompeo went on FOX and friends on Wednesday morning actually talked about this issue. They're conducting espionage an influence operations here in the United States. The latest one was the Marriott. Five hundred million guests there have been security breach. That they they have committed cyber across the world our effort from department of homeland security in the FBI and the State Department is to push back against these threats to America from China. Okay. So when he kind of says, that's right. It seemed almost a lot of people interpreted this way that Pompeo was like as secretary of state officially confirming that China was behind that Marianne hack. Would you actually listen to it? It's a little squishy air. Because it's like he could be like. Yeah, that's right that happened. So it's not totally clear if the US government is like officially attributed this to China, but according to like, the cyber security experts who. Investigated this and officials at the New York Times spoke to on background seemed to confirm that all fingers are basically pointing at China for this. So I mean, this raises a big question. Why would China do this because it's such an odd? Grab bag of things steel, or at least it seems like it. Right. Marriott information personnel records from the federal government and healthcare information like the seems almost random, but it's not right? So if you think about this from an intelligence collection standpoint, right from spying standpoint, if you put all of that information together. So you have a list of all the business executives and American government officials in the US who have security clearances, right? Meaning they have access to sensitive classified information. That's important. Those are people that you as the Chinese government would like to target in terms of I'm gonna go talk to them and see if I can convince them to spy for me, the Chinese government. But if you have that information now add. You have somebody's anthem insurance information..

Marriott officials could not rule out the possibility that the hackers were able to the creeped these details. Well, they did hack you for five hundred million people. I suspect they might be able to decrypt a credit card number. I'm just thinking. I don't know. I mean, it's possible. Wow. So. If you're Zander, identity theft customer, and this is you. It's.

I I do that with American Express, for example, just keep on top of your information and understand what your credit record looks like I think that keep you safe. I we'll just say than Newark New York turning generals going to open up an investigation. So I think this does you know, the fact that they disc- I got wind of this in September took them a while to kind of figure it out. You're still you mentioned, Chris there's still working on some things, I it isn't knocked to Marriott. And I do agree with Jason. I think long. Hermit probably will not matter as much the customers that continue to use Marianna, especially the rewards program. But if we start to see more and more of these things it does start to have a compound effect. We certainly saw that with Facebook over the last year. Big question for me is next time you go to book, a hotel do shy away from area Marriott or Starwood property because you are concerned about the data breach. I think a very small percentage of folks will will pass and move onto to a different hotel chain. I don't think it will have a huge impact. Maybe a blip. Biggest problem with Maryanne is that they only have double beds in their rooms. We or king. So if they really, you know, focus on that. And then we'll move them a little extra room to stretch out. Right. To the loyalty program. I mean, it does seem like Jason this is an opportunity for Marriott and particularly their management team and their communications team because I agree with everything you guys said, but it seems like if they don't manage this from a communication standpoint if they don't reach out to their loyalty members than they could have a self inflicted wound. Yeah. I mean, I'm not a may be a loyalty member. I honestly don't know whenever I brought his clearly clearly not. But I mean it. Yeah. Anytime I ever book it goes through booking dot com. And I just go over the, you know, giving the best deal usually. But yeah, I do agree that in this case they have the opportunity because they have the information on all their loyalty fled members. They can reach out and really really take control of the narrative here, which is important because we've seen in other cases with breaches. Like equifax, for example. I mean, it could be argued that it didn't exactly handle that one with as much grace as they should have. So a big opportunity for them to get a little bit more high touch with consumers in that that obviously does matter to. A lot of those loyalists. Speaking of the loyalty program that I am not a member of the Starwood credit card is a very very popular card. Probably the one or two top cards of that. I see of people that that that I hang with. The question is are people going to be shy about using that card or they're going to have to get a new card because their number has been compromised. That's never fun to do. And that's that creates a whole big chain of events and a problem for both the credit card company and Marriott.
