"Through the full hour ba talking to two of the candidates running to be the men or the people who watch over the city's billions of dollars in spending an assets and debt people running for the job of city comptroller as i mentioned at the outset. We're talking about Who we're going to trust to keep watch over. The city's billions of dollars. The city's number three job is that of city comptroller and sure it sounds boring. Nobody grows dreaming to be controller. But i've often thought that it's about the best job in the city because of the kind of vast powers has that particular kinds of authorities and interest the comptroller can exercise so the comptroller is like the city's official accounted he or she can audit all the agencies in the city of remember the agencies in the city. Spend some eighty eight billion dollars a year. So that's a lot to audit. Those audits can raise. Financial questions can also raise policy questions about you. Know the efficiency and effectiveness of the steps that the city is taking. It's an important very important check on the mayor's power in that way the comptroller also registers contract so as you know a lot of the city's work is not done by but by contractors whether it's human services or building a road or doing consulting work to figure out how the board of elections run better. Or what have you and those contracts total seventeen billion dollars a year seventeen thousand contracts. The controller can register those or not register. Those can block contracts to a degree. That's a tremendous amount of power also overseeing. The city's pension funds the five funds for police and firefighters and teachers and everybody else together compose one of the largest investment funds in the world has a lot of power as an investor deduce shareholder activism Divests from something like firearms or tobacco or fossil fuel related industries. It's a big deal. That's twenty five billion dollars under control in the comptroller's day to day. Overseer of those has a lot to do with the priorities that those pension funds pursue economic forecasting managing the debt if more than seven hundred employees and he operated big policy shop to recent lists of weighed in a different policy issues suggested plans for housing for childcare for dealing with homelessness. You name it of the council is in a position to make those suggestions and frankly not actually execute them. Because they're not. The mayor said they get to kind of sit back. And critique and suggest improvements and use the power of the city's pursestrings to achieve his or her own policy ends And that's a reason why the job is coveted by many people who are seeking a step up from the city council or borough presidency or other offices and it's also why many people who seek that office end up becoming mayor or running for mayor a beam was a comptroller Jay golden who ran for mayor. Alan have the see bill thompson and of course the current comptroller scott stringer's running for mayor the only one in that mix who did not was halston and she ran for the. Us set it. So that's pretty important office too so it say A big big job and an important one and one of the jobs that is on the docket for twenty twenty. One scott stringer as i mentioned running for mayor that's because he is term limited and so there are four people in the race as of now democratic primary in june which as you know in many races in new york city is tacit election. We don't know if there will be republican race if they did run. It's unlikely they would have much of a chance of winning. But the people will be hearing from today. Our senator kevin parker of brooklyn and city council member. Brad lander also of brooklyn They are joined in the race. By state senator bryan benjamin and has been david weapon. Those two candidates have been booked for our show on january twenty seven so two weeks from today and we'll be hearing from them then and obviously next week on the twentieth. Focusing more on inauguration stops which hopefully it will be peaceful and smooth. But we'll be ready for whatever comes our way. So we're hearing from senator kevin parker He is a democrat. He's represented the twenty first district in brooklyn since two thousand three so a veteran of albany veteran of the years too many years in the wilderness when democrats were in the minority than briefly in the majority Particularly well Back the minority now. Of course our very strong and fairly progressive supermajority in the state senate but kevin parker's looking to leave office and become the city's number three official. He is the chairman of the committee on energy and telecommunications and we'll be hearing a few moments switching to get him on the phone. Kevin parker senator from brooklyn is on the line. So welcome to maximum murphy. Hey mackey murphy you just murphy today but thanks for how are you. I'm good glad to hear that Let's dig into a den because we don't have too much time with you and it's a big job and he's got a lengthy career lot to dig into You are a state senator. You have been for many years. What do you feel about this job of comptroller. Do you feel it requires a set of qualifications. Different from other offices foam from being a mayor. Desert require some level of financial savvy. And that's something you bring to the table. Yeah you know a number of years. I've actually been in the state. Senate eighteen years. And i'm the majority whip involved the seminar energy and communications committee and i absolutely think that being city controller does bring a responsibility around a specific set of understanding about finances and and and you know understanding of finances the municipal finance her particular. Anybody who knows finance necessary understand municipal finance You know before. I got elected to the state senate work for paying whatever Doing both government affairs and ms will finance worked worked in the state office. Macomer call As that'd be direct their government affairs. And since i've been in state senate. I've been eighteen years in the finance committee Over ten years on the banking committee the insurance committee and so the issues around revenue. Projections around auditing Around managing the pension fund. Things that in my wheelhouse talk about your time in albany as you mentioned almost two decades much of that time in the minority when obviously it was difficult i'm sure to get legislation passed but when you look at your time there. What do you see as your top accomplishments. Well what do we begin right. i think i think some of it has been you know my top accomplishment the political accomplishments. I'm i'm part of literally. Four people whipped. I've been on the minority. The majority and i think that political understanding Of what it takes to us tweet place where people thinking leading into. When i got elected you know eighteen years ago of senator. You're fading in and out a bit. i don't know if you're if you're traveling or donna. Our end center we may have lost the senator.
"We are going to start with some earnings. and honestly, this is one of those situations where you put earnings in air quotes. Because we're talking about groupon and the first quarter results. They actually weren't as bad as wall. Street was fearing. groupon still lost a lot of money and shares down about ten percent today. Yeah, it was not a great quarter for groupon. The shares the sales fell thirty five percent. Gross profit was down thirty four percent they laid off or furloughed about twenty seven hundred employees out of their sixty three hundred employees, and they also have a new CEO and coo left, so it's been a wild couple of months for your opponent hasn't been great. I'm glad you mentioned the management change because that was something I. SORTA noticed this morning when I was reading about this quarterly report and one of the statements was from interim CEO Aaron Cooper Aaron. Cooper's Bennett groupon for a decade or so, but I was like well. Wait a minute. What's the interim and yeah, as you mentioned a couple of months ago? The board basically said that the CEO the chief operating officer and the. Oh, yeah you. You're both Outta here. So. I'm not even sure where the silver lining is right now with group on because on top of everything else last week they executed the dreaded reverse stock split, and in this case it was a one for twenty. Stock splits so for those unfamiliar. Regular stock split is you sometimes companies will come out and say hit a two one split. If you own it for every one share you own your now going to have to, but of course the prices cut in half the reverse split is the opposite because they're trying to boost their stock price, and so they came out and said forever twenty shares you own. You'RE GONNA. Get One so I mean the management shake-up. The fact that Aaron Cooper has been there a decade and still has the interim tag on his CEO Title I. Don't Know Him, but I think it'd be a little miffed if that were the case. You have to wonder what the board is up to there. And then you know you and I were talking about this earlier today. Maria I. Mean this is we're in the middle of a pandemic. I think of group on I know. They have several business lines, but I think of them as more of like the experience company for a long time that's been their marketing like. Hey, go out and take a hot air balloon ride and we're going to get you a discount on that and that sort of thing and. Know again. It's not all of their business, but they are really taking a hit in this environment. Yeah, I think that the experiences is really where they get their bread and butter. That's what they're known for they are trying to look they break out their revenues in terms of their local and their travel revenue travel revenues less than ten percent local revenues, almost ninety one percent of that revenue, but a good chunk of local revenues experiences within that local space and so i. don't think that. That will bounce back anytime soon. I guess the only silver lining would be that as state start reopening, people and companies will be so desperate for anyone to come. have really good deals in the TRI news utilized. groupon and people will try to utilize it if they don't have. That steady income that they're used to, but it's still not a great outlook for groupon. It's a good point and I think that. One of the things they talk about active customer base. It'll be interesting to see if they're able to grow that in the next three to six months. I'm wondering if you think I mean. They have between North America where they have about twenty five million active customers and an international of of North America another sixteen million, so they got about forty forty, two million active customers. This is not a big company. The market cap is about seven hundred fifty million dollars. Do you think? Do. You think someone's going to swoop in and by group on just so they can get that active customer base, or do you think that there are still enough question marks that? That's not in the cards right now I. think it would be kind of a smart acquisition for some people to get you that bigger customer base, and for people to continue to implement deals. Everyone everyone. I love a good deal. I know a lot of people who have a good deal so having those options are pretty smart. If you're a big retailer or you want exposure into at a growing customer base of people who are generally live in cities, like deals like experiences I feel like it's pretty uh smart to grow that customer base if you need to.

"Look at. What's been happening another week? In the pandemic another round of unemployment data this week's Labor Department report of initial jobless claims revealed an additional four point four million Americans have newly filed for unemployment benefits. That brings the five week total to well over. Twenty six million people completely erasing job gains for the last decade since the recession four point four million is actually lower than the number from last week which could be a sign that the corona virus impact on the real economy may have hit its peak but the curve differs state by state in New York for example claims. This week were about half of what they were week before in Florida. Though new findings were nearly double while the number of American signing up for unemployment benefits grows states. Like Florida are setting near-term timelines to reopen their economies earlier. This week Georgia governor. Brian Kemp announced his plan to partially reopened his State's economy as soon as tomorrow governors of Ohio Tennessee and Florida as I mentioned have also tested the waters with opening plans. The announcement prompted a backlash from some public health officials. Lawmakers and the President Hears Becky quick the Virginia senator. Mark Warner is here and obviously he's been watching all of this play out. Senator Warner thanks for joining us today. If people are home aren't getting paid can open their businesses. They're getting more and more frustrated with this. How do we handle this? How do we kind of figure out where it's okay to open up again where it's not all? I think two things one clearly people are frustrated. My concern is you reopening should be a priority but it's got to be data driven. I think the president's own recommendations have been you need to see fourteen days of declining cases and my concern is if we send back people and only half the workforce goes back because people were concerned or God forbid they go back and you get another spike in the virus and then you may lose. The confidence of your folks entirely I know is a former governor. I would be having this data driven as possible. The president did ask me to serve on his on his taskforce. And I'm my contribution I hope will be. We need more testing testing testing testing. And the fact that we don't even have a common information data site out there that can say what are all the tests that have been approved. What's in the pipeline? What does the FDA about to approve that might give us all a little more guidance? On what the schedule might look like because if we can do the testing in an efficient way do the contact tracing then. I think we can move. As we've seen the cases come down into a reopening face and just wonder how long before we get some of those things testing ability and and the data ability based on everything you know well the FDA has been in the process of approving both additional swab type tests and the antibody tests. I think they're both proceeding on a parallel track in the bill. That's passed to. Hopefully we'll be past today. There's twenty five billion dollars for testing. That's a remarkable investment and clearly testing has to be coordinated on a national level. The one thing I hope the president would not try to impose similar to I think the mistaken he's approached. Ppi which is every state for themselves simply driving up the cost of this equipment. The testing level has to be coordinated at the national level. The fact that there's already a national information site out there. I've actually started to work with Johns Hopkins University who created the definitive site on tracking the virus. There now trying to create. And I think we'll be going live shortly with the the definitive site on testing. We have that information that will be a great guide to governors and others on reopening senator. Sorry about that having technical issues here today. Let me just ask you though. I were doing the state by state because it's hard to come up with the federal plan when there's so many differences between the states but even within the states there are huge differences. cases obviously are much higher in the cities and congested areas and in states where you have lots rural areas Right outside some of those cities. That may be a big part of the problem. Too Do you. Do you think this needs to go almost by a on a county by county basis or is that problematic? I think we need to look at it. Both state and region-wide. You know my state Virginia very very large state you know. I live up in the greater Washington area. You know you can't just open northern Virginia without dealing with DC and Maryland on the other hand. We've got parts of our state. Southern Virginia South side South West Virginia. Eight or nine hours away. They might have a different reopening schedule. But even some of those rural communities we've seen counties with a dramatic spike so I do think you need flexibility. Here there will be some regional reopenings. But you gotTa have that testing equipment and one of the other things. I hope we can get to. We're also going to try to do in terms of restarting the economy in terms of federal support. Because I've got some different ideas there as well and I want you to explain that to us ways of trying to reach out and help small businesses as well as what we've already seen what we've what we've got right now is we've we've got kind of a barbell approach where we've done a very generous program for the airlines and parts of air cargo and even with the challenges with small businesses five hundred and under we've got the eight weeks of of payroll and a little bit of overhead. We've done frankly nothing for the middle market the so-called mainstream facility. I don't think the take-up rates going to be very great. There's no loan forgiveness. We've got this cliff affect if you're under five hundred you get everything taken care of if you've got seven hundred employees you've got nothing so looking at how our reaction has been with the numbers which. I'm sure we'll see a little bit later this morning. Four or five additional million additional unemployed. Maybe we ought to take a step back since this is probably not going to be v-shaped recovery and look at actually what Europe has done and actually put together a paycheck support program paycheck security program. I've laid out some ideas there and we've got support on this idea ranging from Bernie Sanders on the left to Josh. Holly a very conservative senator from Missouri. On the right and a whole series of kind of opinion pages from left to right the Europeans have only seen a two to four percent increase in unemployment. Because they've had this direct payroll support Our plan would get rid of some of the problems around the P P P program. You'd have to actually show a twenty percent revenue decline. So you wouldn't have some of the abuses taking place we would use the payroll processors to provide direct payroll support for folks up and down the food chain and might be a chance as we look at this covert four package. Then we'll come up in a couple of weeks to step back and say if this is going to continue this level of support for the next few months we may learn from what's happening What better approaches from abroad candidly right now with six trillion dollars that we've already put out before the five hundred billion today when you add into thirteen three fed lending facility. You know there may be a smarter. Way To distribute those resources senator some interesting ideas and ways of refining this We hope you'll come back as we move closer towards Kind of addressing the nest factions package. Tim Thank you for your time today
"more than seven hundred employees" Discussed on Gaming Ride Home
"Ubisoft is getting a new. Managing director can be a little confusing to track all the various ubisoft studios. And What Games. They individually work on. Especially when they all seem to at one point or another. Have their hands in some facet of assassin's creed but UBISOFT? Paris is known predominantly for its work on the ghost recon series and the just dance series and it is getting a new managing director Marie. Sophia Wahlberg has been with Ubisoft for more than twenty five years. Patrick Shanley for the Hollywood reporter reported on to Bert's new role writing to Aubert has been with the company for more than twenty years most recently serving as VP corporate affairs. She also was a director of human resources and communications for various ubisoft studios throughout France Ubisoft. Paris studio has been a pillar of Ubisoft for the last twenty seven years developing many of Ubisoft most well known games and flagship technologies. I'm extremely proud to lead this talented group of people as we look ahead towards new opportunities and projects to Walberg said Thursday in a statement. You we saw. Paris is the company's leading in house studio boasting more than seven hundred employees. It was launched in nineteen ninety two and is currently the largest game studio in France outside of D. Ghost recon and just dance series. The studio also developed Zyuganov's rabbits and Raymond Franchises. I think it's interesting. That things are being shaken up at ubisoft. Paris UBISOFT. Co Ms Gmo spoke last year. About how ghost RECON was disappointment in an earnings release and how it has led the company to reevaluate. How delivers live service games like ghost RECON and division and it looks like this might be an early indicator of how it is trying to change things. I do think the release cadence of Yousof Games will begin to look different over the course of the next five or so years in that they will generally slow down. Assassin's creed is already no longer and annual franchise which is frankly something. I am personally happy about and I hope the company will take that approach with. Its other big franchises in the future. The NINTENDO playstation sells for more than three hundred thousand dollars in an earlier episode of gaming ride home. I talked about a hyper rare intendo playstation console that was up for auction on the bidding website heritage auctions. Well the system has officially sold and it went for about three hundred thousand dollars on the site. I say about because the anonymous buyer apparently paid about three hundred eighty thousand dollars after some various premium editions. Eddie Macoutes reported on the sale for Gamespot writing the three hundred thousand dollar sale prices far and away the highest ever price paid for a single gaming item. The previous record belonged to a sealed unopened copy of Super Mario Brothers for any s that sold in two thousand nineteen four one hundred thousand one hundred and fifty dollars according to a report from the website. Us Gamer the identity of the winner was not revealed. Oculus VR founder Palmer lucky previously revealed himself to be the highest bidder at one point earlier in the auction period. But it's unclear if he was the winner in the end it totally could have been lucky. Who secured the sale but on? March sixth when the sale was completed lucky tweeted a picture of a double rainbow with the comment so intense. So I don't. I don't know how much we can really read into that. I'm guessing we pretty much shouldn't read anything into that at all. The nintendo playstation which is the colloquial term. The Internet has assigned to the rare hardware is the product of a failed partnership between Nintendo and Sony to potentially create a console with a cd-rom attachment. Those in the works prior to the release of the original playstation that partnership obviously never panned out but it did produce a handful of these prototypes which are very hard to come by. Which is why this thing sold for so much. I'm very curious to learn who bought it..

Amazon Still Grows Without New York HQ2
"Amazon's decision to abandon its two point five billion dollar plan for a New York City headquarters, you may have heard about it could disrupt redevelopment and dash hopes for a surge in hiring in the neighborhood of Long Island city. However, one entity unlikely to suffer that much Amazon. That's according to the Wall Street Journal's Jay green. He joins us now via Skype in Seattle to explain hey, Jay China. So we've been talking so much as has everyone about, you know, the New York headquarters Amazon pulling out of its regional plans to establish one there too big tech hub for Amazon, but that's just one of many. So what other tech hubs out there are gaining traction as of late in terms of attention in terms of places Amazon wants to make sure it is established. What you know? So Amazon has would it close tech hubs which are eighty or more Louise in seventeen locations in North America? And so the biggest maybe. Not surprising. That's out of Seattle would be the bay area. There are a lot of tech employees. They I think Amazon has about seven thousand employees. They are you know, they they have facilities with pretty large staffs in Boston in Los Angeles. In Austin, Texas, New York remains one of the biggest locations for employees in the company absolutely intends to continue hiring in New York. It's just not going to build that that massive second headquarters or maybe third headquarters there, right? And the the fight for technology workers among these big tech companies. You know, it's always been incredibly competitive. I can't imagine that. That's changed. Yeah. I think it's even more. So it certainly is competitive among, you know, the big tech company is like being on addition to Amazon, Google, Microsoft and others. The thing that's going on a lot of non tech companies are really racing to build up their text app. So you see, you know, these these multinational corporations that. Have money to spend. They went to have good strong text apps as well. And so they're competing for those workers to and despite these big plans to hire, you know, the announcement to pull out of the York brought a lot of attention on the pushback from politicians and the community, you know, Amazon's public retreat in such a way, some some say didn't look very good to say, the least is they're concerned that this could hinder progress in development in hiring. Is this not a setback? And if you know how how big of a setback is it I should say it's clearly going to be a setback when a company says it's going to do something. And then decides it's not going to the question really that. I think some folks are asking is what does that mean? You know, what is the damn sense brand not just brand for consumers, but brand for potential workers, and I've talked to some folks who say, you know, could could hurt on the margins. I don't know that it's a big massive blemish. But there may be folks who look at this in and give second thought I don't know how big that number is. I don't even know how to measure it. But I think there's some. You know, some folks out there in in tech industry, or at least raising that question. Right. And you know that this expansion is a long game that will play out over decades. You know, hiring is going to be quite slow. We're still in the very early stages of a very big project here, there are a lot of you know, scores to settle and this is not exactly going to happen tomorrow. Yeah. And and even Amazon head added the H Q two in New York, they were only planning to hire about seven hundred employees in two thousand nine hundred. So it was going to take some time to build up the twenty five thousand target that that the company had an -ticipant did. So, you know, listen Amazon's gonna keep hiring. They're going to keep hiring in New York. Probably not at the pace that they had anticipated just a couple of weeks ago, but you know, Amazon's gonna continue to grow in. It's going to continue to need a more employee's for the foreseeable future in that probably happened in New York and elsewhere,
