"nike" Discussed on Squawk Pod

"I'm CNBC producer Cameron Costa, and this is squawk pod. A crypto crisis exchange FTX is on the brink of collapse and investors want their money. It's insane that this is an area that's not regulated. We'll hear from the top regulator SEC chair, Gary gensler, with a warning to crypto companies. Come in and talk to us, the runway is getting shorter. The laws are clear. And Nike founder Phil knight poured millions into one 2022 race. Spoiler, it's at odds with Nike itself. Nike's got a lot of diverse opinions that it's a creative place. So I don't expect everybody to agree with me and I'm finding a way things off. Becky quick has a rare sit down with the shoe dog on politics and his first comments on Nike's split with NBA star Kyrie Irving. Kyrie stepped over the line to kind of that simple. Plus, what else got us squawking? We're the CEOs of this show. The battle of the blue check marks rages on. Whether I have a blue check mark or not, I don't really care about it. Really? It's Thursday, November 10th, 2022, and squawk pod begins right now. Stan Becky bye in three, two, one, kill the police. Good morning, everybody. Welcome to squawk box here on CNBC. We're live from the NASDAQ market site in Times Square. I'm Becky quick, along with Joe kernan and Andrew Ross Sorkin. A little the latest on the midterm elections, Republicans appear on track now to secure a slim majority in the House. Control the Senate is so far is far from decided and that Georgia Senate race now headed for a runoff in December votes are still being counted in Arizona, Nevada with the results too early to call. The Wall Street Journal editorial board isn't pulling its punches calling former president Trump, quote the Republican Party is the biggest loser after his preferred Senate candidates in New Hampshire and Pennsylvania lost his Arizona Senate candidate is trailing in the current polls and his Georgia candidate heading for a runoff. So that's what The Wall Street Journal said. Here's what the New York Post said, Trump de dumpty. Trump's big fail. It's kind of, again, and again. Murdoch land is, it's desantis land now. And it's not just Murdoch. There's a lot of just normal conservatives and Republicans are I described that cat has 9 lives. He's definitely hit 9, and I'm just wondering, what's going to be interesting is November 15th. You mean what he says? Whether he's still does that. He's in a box. Because he said he's going to do it. If he doesn't do it, it means that he senses that there's been damage. You think you're right. And if he does do it, it's going to be, there might be, it might not be very exciting event for anyone. I have a hard time seeing him back. Trump de dumpty is but isn't the good news of all of this and this is based on some of the conversations I had had just yesterday with CEOs and other things. But investors too. And conversations we've had. We're the CEOs of this show. So you don't need to talk. We don't have to talk to them. No, but I'm saying in terms of what the look, everybody likes stability, right? Right. And I think there's, and I think that if you're taking that off the table, which is what I think is you could be done here to the two parties talking to each other. And you might at some point you might be able to a guy like young kid or something, or desantis. And then the question is, does desantis actually move more towards the middle? Have you been trying to take that populist? I may be populous, but I wouldn't call him ultra maga. And in his results show that you can win a swing state, which used to be a swing state like Florida. You can win in a landslide through being an effective governor. And everything that he did down there was effective. That's his record. Hurricane pandemic, whatever you want to look at. You saw his speech. He's not backing off either he says, this is where woke comes to die. We reject woke ideology. We fight the woke in the legislature. We fight the woke in the schools. We fight the woke in the corporations. We will never, ever surrender to the woke mob, Florida is where woe goes to die. Florida, and it's going to stay that way. So I don't know. I knew this morning Bloomberg, not the guy. I guess the new services reporting that Elon Musk emailed Twitter workers for the first time late yesterday to prepare them for difficult times ahead. What is it that they've had for the past 6 months? He also abandoned remote work unless he personally approves it. Wow. That's going to be hard for you to teach in place. Saying he expects some employees to be in the office for at least 40 hours a week. Musk said there was no way to sugarcoat this message. About the economic outlook and how it would affect the company like Twitter that relies on advertising. Meantime, Twitter's new pay for verification system already facing a wave of fake accounts for high profile people in brands, the platform rolled out the $8 a month version of its blue subscription service yesterday, but so far spoof accounts several high athletes including LeBron James have all been suspended. As well as one account a claiming to be Nintendo of America, spokesperson for Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment by NBC News. That's the issue. Anybody can pretend for 8 bucks that they are anyone or any place else. Crazy. Yeah. There's still Joe kernan's hair still tweets. There are several others. Of interesting, like people's ties, people's yeah. You gotta, you got some, don't you? No? There's a whole bunch of those. There's a whole bunch of those, but those aren't. Those are parody accounts. Your hair doesn't specifically have an account. I don't know. Sure someone will be making one right now. Mark Cuban was tweeting last night saying, hey, just as one entrepreneur to another when you're wearing your Twitter complaint hat and looking at things. He said he spent like the last couple of hours going through and trying to mute all these people who have these new blue check marks for when he when you put it over to authenticate or verified users when you're looking at things that had totally jumped that up and made it very hard for them to kind of get through and listen to any of those things. He said it in a nice way. Well, no, the conundrum with this new system is I used to look at the blue check mark as some kind of verification. Not just that they were a real human being. But ostensibly, somebody had said, now again, this is part of what Elon Musk is trying to get at, that once I've sort of flattened the world between experts and non experts and people who are of a certain ill get of this into that, and I get it. But I actually enjoyed, especially during certain times, you're looking for trying to figure out which doctors are actually saying stuff that could either be real or not or what's going on. And again, I know people have debates about that too, but knowing that somebody has said, yeah, that's actually somebody because it sounds terrible, but somebody rather than the muck. Can you imagine some of the greatest experts are right in there? No, but that's why I say I understand the idea of trying to flatten the system and whether I have a blue check mark or not. I don't really care about what I'm saying. I don't care personally at all. What I'm saying is you just don't want somebody else. I don't care about someone. Well, you want somebody else to have a blue check market says they're you. No, I wouldn't be able to I actually enjoy being able to read through the things and be able to spot not who's who, but what's what? And I think it actually helps give you a little bit, it's like a signifier that something's going on here. And by the way, you may not care if you have a blue check mark. You don't want somebody else having a blue check mark impersonating you and running around and saying crazy things. I just don't think you want people impersonating you. Can you imagine asking Elon Musk if you could work from home? There is there is someone that's at Joe squawk with a check marker under the crazy things. There is. Yeah. It would actually be me, but that's definitely happening on a pretty consistent basis. As you have pointed out. Up next on squawk pod news for the crypto exchange, FTX

Sen. Tommy Tuberville Shuts Down the Idea of Reparations

"Senator Tommy tuberville made some comments over the weekend that have really triggered the left. The senator was speaking at a Trump rally and here's what he had to say about the Democrats and reparations. Some people say, well, they're soft on crime. No, they're not soft on crime. They're program. They won't cry. They won't cry because they want to take over what you got. They want to control what you have. They want reparation because they think the people that do the crime are owed that. Bull. They are not old that. So now they're out there accusing tuberville a being a racist and CNN MSNBC among those that are out there saying, well, we all know that's just code. We know, well, did you hear the word black? Did you hear any skin color referenced in that in that sound bite? No, of course not. Because it's not true. Now you say Todd, how can you say that? How can you say it's not true? Well, it's very clear to me it's not true because we went back and again on this program we have a vast vault, where we store these incredible little audio nuggets. And we know for a fact that Black Lives Matter back in the year 2020, actually said that looting is reparations cut number 8. If somebody decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy's or a Nike, because that makes sure that that person eats. That makes sure that that person has clothes. That's reparations. That is reparations. Anything they want to take, take it because these businesses have insurance. They're going to get their money back. My people aren't getting anything. There you go. That was the leader of the Chicago Black Lives Matter. Back in 2020, those

How "the Big Guy" Supports Democrats

"Everything the left touches it ruins schools are a perfect example. And parents will then vote Democrat. I don't know what to say with regard to that. Is it that they don't think about what is happening, is it that they believe that voting Republican is an act of evil? I think it's that more than anything else it has been so drummed into them, Republicans are for the big guy. Of course, the big guys overwhelmingly support Democrats. Maybe a big corporation that supports conservatism. I'm serious. Can you think of one? See, just think American Express, Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, Google. Nike, Disney, they'll always give her an oil companies. The answer they'll always give is oil companies. Okay, fine. So let's say it's true. Okay. Oil company. There's a war on oil companies.

BYU Says Investigation Did Not Find Evidence of Racist Heckling

"Back to the subject at hand. I really want to talk about other stuff, but this is just bothering me. I just, I feel like that, how do we combat this as a nation this false sense of racism that goes on? And let me say fossils of racism. I feel like that the racism that people are crying about isn't even real. I just told you about the girl that duke that's on full scholarship. I'm sure she's on a full scholarship. She's getting paid to go to school at duke and get an education. And she made up a hate crime. I mean, I made up somebody saying a racial slur. How far does this go? You got the world in front of you. They're paying you to play a sport and go to school. I was a scholarship athlete. They treat you like a king and a queen. We didn't worry about clothes. They gave us a close statement. We got all the Nike gear. We got fed all you can eat meals every night. All you can eat from Boston market from all of these places, all you can eat, steak and shrimp, all you can eat. Every night, they fed us so much that people were mad that they have to even eat. We were so full we didn't want to eat no more. They made us eat. You got the world ahead of you, man. We go to the week book our classes. They don't come with class you pick. We ain't not one time thought about a price. And then the players that come out of state, they don't have to pay out of state tuition. It doesn't matter. So this young girl is privileged amongst other black people. She didn't have to pay for school. And even a person in that predicament on a team full of white people, which probably they love her and they treat a whale. They are all good friends. And even a person like that in our society makes up a lie about somebody using a racial slur against her.

"Family and I had a delicious dinner last night at an authentic Greek restaurant. It was our first time eating there. I want to go back someday, but I don't want to embarrass myself by mispronouncing menu items. I'd like to hear you say saga naki, moussaka, and soca lot P top. Would you be willing to do so? Let me just be honest with you. I don't need this kind of harassment or harassment from anybody, much less from you, Kurt Schmidt and Tucson, Arizona. But I'm going to take it. I'm going to take it because that's what I signed up for, man, okay? So I'm going to try to pronounce these words correctly. I may fail, but okay, the first one, and Alvin, you did a pretty good job. Oh, thank you. And you're a non Greek as far as I know. But the first one is didi saga Nike. Is cheese. That's where you get diet or pita, didi is cheese and pita is like pie or whatever or spanakopita spinach pie. Didi is cheese. Saga Nike is the type of cheese. It's the kind of cheese that they put some alcohol on it and they light it on fire. And it's really, really dramatic, unless you actually get burned by it, in which case it will have failed to be entertaining. But it's called didi saganaki. Most people just say saganaki, 'cause it's the type of cheese. Okay, then we have the very simple moussaka. People also say moussaka because we're in America and we twist things a little bit. But the good people are saying, Musa, Musa. So we have DD saganaki and moussaka. And then the last one. I actually, I'm not familiar with this, and I think this is, I think, in Tucson, Arizona, where Kurt Schmidt lives. There's some Greek restaurant and they're kind of going off the grid and they're doing kind of American Greek stuff because I think this is chocolate pie.

The Nasty Sting in Nike's Sponsorship Bonuses

"This is a fun fact about Nike that I had no idea about until a couple of years ago. Yeah, their bonuses are massive. Huge, best, best. Rest of apparel company and all the PGA Tour, but if you backtrack, say you're say your bonus for the years, a $1 million if you finish inside the top 50, all right? In the world. And you go to like 75 for each spot that you lose, you have to pay it back. Really? I don't believe that. That's true. It's true. I was told that by an Asian. By actually my old agent, told me that. So isn't that crazy? They're the only people that do that. So that's why they pay so much money is because if you backtrack, you owe it back to them. Not the whole thing, but a percentage. Of your big bonus, you owe it back to them. So it's kind of keeps those guys honest to a point. But yeah, I mean, you can obviously if you play well, you're gonna kick ass and make a shitload of money. So you don't worry about it, but if you backtrack, you pay back.

Mall of America Locked Down After Shooting

"Breaking news developing right now in the mall of America is on lockdown due to a shooting. Now, I know some people would like to imagine that this is another active shooter situation with rifles so they can ban guns, but it seems like it's an isolated situation to be confirmed as an isolated situation according to the mall. There's a short video that they posted on Twitter that shows a man walking into the Nike store while shouting and a sound of three apparent gunshots can be heard. Danny, I don't know how this is probably not the person here. Danny raining 22 Minneapolis student was at the mall with friends when announcer came out. Okay, so I don't think that that was him. This probably was a witness. This person said that about 75 people were at the small room, they did not hear any gunshots fired, but saw people running away, the mall marked the 30th anniversary of his opening on August the 11th. And was placed on lockdown New Year's Eve last year when two people were shot during a fight. One man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and another was grazed. So right now it's developing, but it appears to be a isolated situation.

The Real Reason Companies are Taking a Stand on Abortion Rights

"Sign as Tucker Carlson beautifully put it last evening in his monologue, a woman is less likely to quickly respond to an email about some sort of internal issue happening in the company if she has to put her kids down to sleep, or she has to feed them dinner, or pick them up at soccer practice. Moms do not make as good of corporate loyalists as Goldman Sachs, Nike or Netflix would like them to be. Now, I still think they make phenomenal workers, but they need to be moms first. That's what actually matters for your society and your civilization. Now, one of the kind of circumstances we're seeing is a generation of millennial women that are in their late 20s and early 30s that have pursued their career first. I'll get married later. I'll find a boyfriend or a husband later in life. And that very well might work out for you. Who am I to say differently? But I am one to look at generational trends and trajectory that largely as more of a generalization than a rule that has created a deeply unhappy demographic of hyper successful corporate women. Of women that are in corporate life, I should say, but they're deeply unhappy. Why? It's because they've been told to just get the next paycheck, stick with cats and dogs, get an above Azure part above average apartment, live in a very expensive urban center in metropolis, focus on your career at all costs and do not whatever it takes. Get married or have children. Now, some women get fine fulfillment in that for the rest of their life, fine. Most do not. And so make no mistake that corporate America that is pushing forward these I'm going to pay you to go get an abortion. I'm going to pay you if I'm Amazon to go out of state or even Tesla deeply disappointed to hear that from Elon Musk's company. I'm going to pay you to go out of the state to go basically remain loyal to our company. It's not about abortion, it's about profit

Watching a lot of the NCAA tournament this year don't know why particularly. And I've noticed every uniform has multiple logos on them now. The NASCAR you got logos all over the uniform. Everybody's used to that. In the NBA, we now have one corporate sponsor, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been good year because they're nearby. A lot of teams have different sponsors. I think FedEx is on the Memphis Grizzlies uniforms. But this year in the NCAA, you've got the NCAA logo. You've got the logo of the manufacturing company, whether it's Nike or Adidas or whoever is making the uniform. And then you've got the American flag or some kind of logo on there. And one of the schools, I think, has their 75th anniversary logo. And then you've got the team conference logo. So you've got four logos right about the stirrup area and all these uniforms. And I got to wonder why. And what's next? Advertising logos on these uniforms? I understand wanting to brand a school, but I don't understand why the NCAA needs their logo on the uniform. I'm not making a lot of sense to me. The American flag logo, wonderful idea, but do we really need that?

Is Systemic Racism a Fact?

Is Systemic Racism a Fact?

"But I would even push back on the idea that systemic racism is a fact because I would argue that the definition of that is confusing. We have always had sin in not just an American life everywhere in the world. There's sin. If you are attractive, people will respond to you differently than they will to somebody less attractive. If you're tall, they respond to you. These are the kinds of things that if you make it your thing, this is our thing that people are treating attractive people and that we have to talk about this. We have to have forums about this. We have to talk about this in our churches. I think by talking about it, you don't help. And I actually think you make it worse. Because unless you're an idiot, you know that you're a sinner and that you judge people wrongly and you have to work on that constantly and somehow the church I believe has bought into this lie that we've got to talk about this. We've got this is the most important thing. And I think to myself, you care about racism really. So then you should care that Uyghur Muslims are being murdered for their organs by the Chinese communists who are atheists and who are doing this to them because they want to cling to their ethnic and religious identity and the Chinese communists say no. We don't believe in liberty. Now if the churches would get behind that would say that we are serious about real racism and we're going to do everything we can. We're going to boycott companies that are doing business with China that are turning a blind eye to this, whether it's the NBA or Nike. We're going to take this seriously. I then think people would say, you know, those people in the church, they really do care about strangers that look different than they do. That's beautiful. That's kind of amazing. But we have folks even like campus crusade crew and whatever. And they're acting like this is the issue that somebody got their feelings hurt and they walk around with this. And it kind of reminds me of if somebody is feeling self pity, I feel like I want to say to them, hey, God loves you. Don't think about what that idiot said to you or what that guy who didn't hire you because he's a racist or that don't think about that jerk pray for him and God wants to bless you. It's a completely different view

"Okay, so well, cafa held Senate hearings on organized crime that really turned heads. I would like to see those sorts of hearings on the Chinese Communist Party influence in the United States. On the NBA, on Disney, on Nike, on everybody, because the CCP is influencing the United States culture in profoundly horrible ways. Do you agree with that? I do think that CCP by determining what different companies are going to do with making their products in China with broadcasting as they are shows in China that they are having that impact. And I agree with you that they are ought to be something done about this and it is frustrating to me when there is a lot of willingness by some of my colleagues to call them out.

"Friday, everyone. Nike wants to sell digital shoes. There's a sentence I never thought I'd say. But it is 2021 and the Xu giant did just file trademark applications that make their plans apparent. The trademark protections will act a lot like they do in the real world when companies try to sell knock off Nike shoes or clothing. But here we're talking about the digital world. Shoes and apparel worn by characters in virtual games. That means that if developers of video games or other online platforms ever have a hankering to outfit a character with a swoosh or use the phrase just do it, well, they're out of luck. Beyond protecting their brand in the digital world, the applications also make clear Nike's intent to eventually sell virtual goods. Some games like Fortnite already allow players to spend actual money on what their avatars in the game were. Soon, we could be seeing a whole bunch of video game characters and air Jordans. And that's expected to be a pretty sweet deal for the company. As trademark attorney Josh gerben told The Wall Street Journal, the selling of virtual goods will quote probably become a revenue stream for Nike. Because, of course, it will. Nike is by far the world's largest manufacturer of athletic shoes with an estimated market share of 50%. They dominate in the real world and they'll likely dominate in the not so real world. Sorry gamers I had to say it. Speaking of shoes that aren't grounded in reality, there's another company that's also dealing in digital footwear. If you can believe it, artifact studios is making shoes with NFTs, those are blockchain cryptocurrency tokens that can't be replicated. If you buy an NFT shoe from artifact, it's exclusively yours and can't be copied or duplicated. The shoes exist solely in the digital universe where your avatars can wear them, but alas, you can not, but now really, who would pay real money for shoes that would never in a million years touch their actual feet. Well, it turns out a lot of people. In March, artifact released a series of kicks that sold out in just 7 minutes for $3.1 million. Yes, that's the amount of real money the digital shoes brought in. Artifact has previously partnered with game makers to adorn video game characters in their storied footwear, like Atari. Yes, that Atari, which manages a portfolio of around 200 games, artifact created a high end fashion spread for Atari complete with a pair of shiny purplish sneakers. A virtual sneakers. Nowhere on artifacts designs a Nike swoosh because, of course, that would be copyright infringement. Folks, the metaverse, that's what the endless world of interconnected digital communities is called well, the metaverse is only growing. And if you don't want to be caught barefoot in the metaverse, both Nike and artifact want to make sure you're covered. At least your virtual feet are that is.

"My thanks charlie film court for that report next we head to the united states we all know like as one of the world's most famous sportswear brands. That clothing can be found on late athletes competing in a number of sports from basketball to golf and escape boarding at the race in tokyo olympics. Part of the crew charged with developing team uniforms donovan harris knocks uniform innovation design late. I was joined by donovan down the line from the company's headquarters in oregon to discuss no extras on process. One that always starts with the athletes. He reflects here on having needs of competitors changed drastically from sport to sport when it comes to performance and styling is the interaction with the athletes. Every sport has its own distinct needs right working with nba like really old up the innovation behind the materials and the stuff that we did but then also realizing it's not all about one hundred percent performance. You have to make sure that one at nike. It was all about lightweight. Have in zero distraction but at the same time you have to remember that athletes themselves want the fuel special when they wear this stuff. Some of the athletes actually felt like they wanted more weight because it meant something to them. Select the deal the jersey. That was a great example. Nba nfl was all about durability with zero distraction they they have so much gear on sometimes. Less is more when it comes to design malecki learning to with nfl Was when we stuff on our athletes and models did you know basically the create the styles. Make sure we get the right. Look in Ranger movement alive. Times would do it when they're standing right but with nfl one of the things we learned. What's the the form or the the the stance that the actual athlete is in most. Let's fit according to that. You know that way. When they're in their optimal state they have zero distraction versus just standing just standing. You know that's just you know situation. You're in when you're performing your. That's not your prime positioning. I mean it sounds like nfl. There's a focus on performance in the nba. I maybe there's more of a focus on feeling good. How does this translate to sell your skateboarding range. I mean to me. they're athletes. That seem to combine style with performance more so than any other sport. There's history and distinct style around not only performance but then also comfort so being able to look at traditional materials but then bring him performance to that it's more covert technology versus over. You know where you have in basketball and other sports we do like global football and stuff like that being able to pull elements for that with huge for skateboarding specifically in the olympics. When we first met with our team the first thing we did was asked them. What's the first thing they think of with olympics and skateboarding. I want to ask as well and continuing with that. Skateboarding thread you. You design the olympic uniforms for a number of countries notably japan the usa and brazil. Who'll meddled but given that so much skating. Fashion is about individuality. How's that translate into designing uniforms. And how athletes respond to you. I guess been uniformed a lot of immoral worried that we were just gonna make it very homogenized cookie cutter everyone looking distinctly the same. And that's not what skateboarding is about. Skateboarding is all about individuality style. And being able to celebrate that now with what you wear and how you look but the nassir escape a someone. Skating can do one trick but five different skaters could do that trick completely different even though it's the same trick just based on the style how they do it and i think it's the same with outfits and i think it was very representative at the olympics where you saw all the writers do their own little twist to it and that was the whole intention of the reforms that we created the olympics. And that's why we offered so many pieces so they could you know basically highlight what they wanted to stand for so it was huge That makes that makes perfect sense. I mean you talked earlier about basketball as wanting to feel special. They wanted to feel the white when they put on that jersey and it sounds like skaters have similar considerations when choosing their uniforms. But i'm curious. What else are you taking into consideration when you're designing these garments outside of the physical performance of the actual clothing things that we realized at iky i think working there we've kind of evolved through different stages at one point we were all about performance innovation like i said ultralight way. What has the most range of motion what is gonna get you there quicker and faster but then we after talking athletes. It's more than that. It's that mental state too of having that advantage. You know because if you have something that's super performance oriented and innovative that it's going to get you above and beyond but your confidence level of how you look is not there like if you feel like you've look hokey and almost embarrassed is getting heavier performance and so we realized that and so when we dive into each sport we dive into each athlete on what really matters to them and really focus on that and it's different for every athlete but we want highlight that and enhance it to the point where they feel special. They haven't advantage not only from a performance standpoint. But just confidence. That's a huge part. I mean it's just as important as the performance innovation side. And i mean what do those discussions look like with the athletes. So you're asking them what feels cool. What makes them feel good or is it much more you as a designer thinking about looking for inspiration elsewhere. Yeah i.

Something clearly demonstrated by the lights won the bronze recent foray into the mobile phone markets. His jane sway global director of mobile at like to tell us a little bit more. No no one phone. Which i have. My hand is our first smartphone that like has introduced into the world. There are three key differentiations that we have implemented number one. It is the industrial design. Number two is really the you x. Where we have simplified the user interface to make it really concentrate and focus on taking pictures and number three is really through a a software experience that we will continue. Innovate on a phone. That will deliver like us optical an image capabilities we use a single lens is because what we do imaging the software we have implemented and user is able to take images. Whether it's on street photographer war they want to take a close shot or escape. Eight performs very well. Aside from performance lakers also known for its strong design with an esthetic builds up over many years based on classical shapes strong materials and simplicity of use according to mark chipper head of design at laker. This approach continues to define the brand to this day. When you get to work for such a legendary brand look like a you never working from blank sheet of paper. You always have to reflect on the past and what's happened in the history of the product development and of course al al most conic product the like m. it's an iconic object in in in today's world. It's really has many elements that we can carry over in terms of its simplistic approach to design these very clear extreme form when you look at what the different interface elements doom before i even touch the camera and these these types of things. We can carry over onto other devices such as a smartphone. That's what we we believe. We've done quite well in this first product. When we started to work on the first concept that he was very clear to us that the device we were going to design has to be instantly recognized as a like a product through the field. The look and how it works for us. It was just really about staying to our values that we've been carrying on for decades now through the evolutionary perched design and looking for elements from design heritage of his car design designed naved work on on such a simple device like a smartphone and i guess the simplicity is probably the key if you look at the overall smartphone markets Segment today. it's all pretty much same same. And we also want to make a device that really stands out in this world but at the same time yeah once instantly recognizes that like a product as well as ensuring that the new smartphone was clearly still parts of the lika family. The design team also worked hard on ensuring that the digital user interface remained logical and uncluttered his mark. Shephard again yes. It's pretty much the same design and it's looking at how to once again. Simplify which is complexity of digital worlds and particularly. You is quite overwhelming. It's l. constant philosophy just to reduced functionality. And how you interact with with a divisive product into away. That's easy to use. You should really understand it by looking at what you press how it works and remove basically superfluous functions particularly in the camera. You know you don't actually need that many parameters to adjust to make great photos. And i think i lost smartphone world. These days is so complex relief to people who take lights funding the hand and they realized that action doesn't have to be loved that it's about celebrating the purest aspect of like is designed in the digital design as well as industrial design. Being a camera. Brown first and foremost the move into a new market is undoubtedly daunting one however according to dr andreas kaufmann chairman and majority shareholder of like a camera. It was an obvious decision to make considering the changing behavior of photographers and like his engineering expertise. Simple you know nowadays. Everybody's target bug because enron is wearing a floating around and everybody's taking pictures and the second time we decided we have to boost something there because it's the consumer camera everybody carries it around. I think it was a an when said the best camera you have is the one you have iran with you because otherwise so it was quite simple. We head to go there. I think we're on a certain way. create something which for the consumer means. That's a great beta taking pictures. And then sharing we doing digital cameras since ninety ninety six so we have the suspects years we have the optically experience. The sense expense an all that. And you know the smart you the same thing. Only with a tiny little elephants smaller sensor optics little bit tricky etc. So it can be combined quite nicely when you understand what you're doing. I think we understand this. One which is currently only available in japan was also an opportunity to bring the brown to a whole new range of customers. Outside of their traditional remits of photography his jane swagger and explaining strategy as a imaging camera company as our heritage. We live to be able to extend our experience and to the smartphone users as well as introducing our brands to these what we call a smartphone photographers. So you know. One of the key areas of making this phone is really to re- to the audience. A broader set of audience. Today may not have experience with a like a camera or the brand and picked. Japanese market is because japanese consumers has the highest requirement for quality. So if we can make it in the japanese market and we believe we're going to be successful in the rest of the world and we are happy to report out. The result has been quite positive where able to exceed our expectations of reaching younger demographics. As well as more female users as a boy i looked at my father's like a like a sacred object heart was beating fast when i was allowed to use it for the first time having integrated like as long developed expertise in design and engineering. The lights one is clearly looking like a success. In japan considering this it of course begs the question when we to see it's available elsewhere in the world his undress coffman on what we can expect in the future is a very interesting market for testing these kinds of things we would offer that so what would be the next steps.

And how has life been for you after the lead. It's so exciting to be back. It's so great to meet you in person tiff. I love what you've done with the show. It's been really great to see the show grow from this little thing that we all kind of built together more than a year ago. It's really cool to be back. It's weird being on this side of of the mic so to speak but yeah hopefully hopefully some of my experience on your side of the mike will make this an easy go. Yeah definitely let's get right to it so we're here to talk about. Us track and field star allyson felix and her incredible journey to her fifth olympics which will also be her first olympics. Azam mom so i can. You just remind us of her background and her accomplishments as a spinner. Yes so i mean. Allyson felix is the most decorated athlete in track and field history. She's won ten national titles eighteen world championship medals including thirteen golds. That's more golds at world's than any track and field athlete ever including you sane bolt nine olympic medals six golds three silvers two world records. She's currently tied for the most olympic medals and track and field and one more in tokyo would make her the most decorated woman in olympic track and field history. That's so exciting. She's quite the athlete that i don't think people realize how would you say that. She was known to fans of the us olympic team or the american public in the earlier part of her career. Yeah i mean her. Reputation was really for coming on scene. Super yacht maybe as the successor sprint star for the united states allyson felix. He's only eighteen years old. She already has been on the cover. Sports illustrated how about that at eighteen years old. You know she. She burst onto the scene as a senior in high school In two thousand three. She broke marion. Jones is national school record In the two hundred meter she was in high school athlete of the year that year she was known for being this kind of revolutionary athlete by forgoing a track and field scholarship at usc in order to sign pro with adidas and allyson felix has been running with more confidence each round here and she's really rounding in the shape of a first female or male athlete to go straight from high school right into the pros up until recently. She's been an eyes on the prize. Kind of athlete. Where i think a lot of people will tell you you know she. She really had a one pun. Intended one track mind to get those olympic gold. There is a rising star. alison feelings. Soon wins the two hundred meter competition. The eighteen year old leads the us contingent to athens well in two thousand nineteen. She sort of exploded on the national radar in a way that i think transcended sports. So can you walk us through. How things unfolded with her and nike. So after the twenty six th olympics in rio she announced that for twenty eight teams should be taking some time off and at the time she said. I've never really taken a break. I just wanna take some time for myself. I'm still going to raise but don't be alarmed if you don't see me out there. We now know that she was pregnant at the time and she had already begun. Contract renegotiations with nike. Apparently nike had already offered her a seventy percent pay-cut without knowing that she was pregnant but knowing that she was going to scale back her running. At the time. I was thirty two years old. That's where they felt. My value was and so i already didn't have a great feeling moving forward. You know thinking about starting a family with she and her brother who was also agent decided at the time that they were going to hide her pregnancy from nike out of fear that they would end those negotiations. Now there was precedent for that nike had done that before. Two other runners. So it wasn't an unfounded fear. Generally your contract is held. So it's place on a hold in when you return to competition then your contract with resume. She started to show when she was in the later stages of her pregnancy she trained before dawn so that nobody would see her baby bump she were backing clothes. She you know. She didn't invite a ton of people to her baby shower and she said it was really isolating time and during that time she developed severe pre eclampsia which is A condition marked by high blood pressure that causes childbirth complications and is far more prevalent among african american women.

Just do it quite often when we push back on boss who wants to take on more work we're told to just do it or sometimes when we raise risks issues fig lost over and ignored and we're told to just do it given that the wolves leading athletic brand has the tagline. Just do it all. I took to calling these people nike bosses. I think we've all experienced anarchy boss at some point correze and even though it seems like it should be fairly simple problem to solve. It's not the dynamics can be quite complex. And the underlying drivers. Make it difficult for nike bosses to change.

"Many of us get the stock of nike so wrong. Making capitalization companies don't usually see their stock spike more than fifteen percent on grade earnings unless a lot of people were very very wrong or of course very very short going into the quarter. I know because i was one of those. People used to own nike for the child. Trust but over the course of the last three months. We unloaded yarn tire position. That's how word was about these numbers now. Of course i'm kicking myself from that stickiness. When even as we ended up making lots of money early on for charity with so what happens you what one one what. Bogus worry scare people away from something. That turned out to be terrific. First and foremost. There's china back in march. We learned that a handful of apparel companies like nike. and h m. we're facing boycotts. in china. after they public vowed not to source any cotton from the region. That's a northwestern. Most part of the country where the communist party is viciously persecuting the local muslim population. They've got a million people in internment camps and these companies don't want to profit from their forced labor response to chinese government an example out of h inam not nike the big swedish pouching. The brands basically disappeared from china's internet and their landlords forcing store closures. All over the country. After that you had to worry that they cracked nike to what it that would be. A huge problem. Getting nike gets to twenty percent of its sales from to china. And it's also the copies growth engine. Sure alienating the chinese government would be very bad for business but nike has recently demonstrated a willingness to stand up for controversial causes member. They signed colin capital to an endorsement deal after he got blackpool by the nfl. Wouldn't they stand with political prisoners in china to what if some analysts ask them about jingzhang on the consul and management needs some big pronouncement about religious freedom. That was really what was keeping me up at night. Well then we had a bunch of other concerns. The last time that reported their sales came in weaker-than-expected not great on top of that winter storm. Yuri 'cause you ge- domestic shipping delays in february which crept in march and caused major port congestion or the world. What else last year. We saw a massive ath- leisure boom because millions of people no longer had to dress up for work. There was a widespread sense that this'll be rolled. Back is the world returns to normal and then for a while there. You had to worry at the tokyo olympics. Which is a big nike wake. Up call would ended up being cancelled rather than just reschedule remember. He's a major sponsor in a lot of the athletes wear nike megi matters worse when footlocker reported late. May the company gave you a tap and forecast talking about ongoing pandemic related store closures in europe and canada. Well that make you feel like nike. Their bestseller might not be doing so. Well finally thanks to all these issues. Nike had an increasingly ugly chart going into the quarter. This was the worst charting. The dow jones industrials sometimes that's meaningless. But you had to wonder if maybe the bears knew something about this quarter that the rest of us didn't but then he reported last it totally knocked it out of the park. We're talking about a monster. Forty two cents earnings beef off of a fifty one basis with much higher than expected sales up at incredible ninety six percent year bureau. Top magic gave excellent guidance for the next fiscal year and then they did something that all us about they gave you a forecast all the way through to twenty twenty five. So how did they do it. Well let's start with china because that was the biggest worry. Well nike's chinese numbers weren't great much better than feared sales up nine percent on a constant currency basis as cfo. Matt friend explained on the conference. Call the boycotts. Hurt them in april but most of the pain vanished in may and by our goal. They're pretty much over it. I feel like i was too paranoid here. See sure h. And m. dig it obliterated for defined chinese government but nike nike's not ancient him some that's because nyc he's got a much bigger popular brand some of it's probably political h. m. is swedish. Okay china can make an example out of them and there's nothing sweet and can do about it but nike's he's huge american operation. Well governments not on great terms of beijing right now. They still have to think twice before they start cracking down on iconic. Us companies so well h products got purged from the internet and china nike. Still the number one brand on team. All the big chinese e commerce poverty in fact they've added another million numbers on t. mobile through the june eighteenth. Shopping holiday a mess. Incredible when you're john donahoe was asked about china and the cops school. He didn't pontificate anticipate about human rights. Abuses now instead. He sounds like kevin johnson the starbucks who told us a great story about how it was companies strong relations with the chinese customer base. Daro pointed nike's got a long history in china. His founder phil knight started making stickers. They're over forty years ago. The country's created tons of jobs here cleaning jobs new digital technology center that they're opening in chen's in so there to look at this. Maybe he's too so big that transcends politics deploy cost just couldn't stick because nike's in a class of its own. It's not like boycotting a cell phone maker or empowered company. If on jordan's you're gonna get yours. I'm not michael jordan's more powerful than presidency unless we're talking about one on one. I think there's some truth to this. If any brand can transcend politics. it is nike. But if you had another way maybe nike. The company is just very good at politics before they took a stand against human rights abuses engineers airing. They had a great relationship with the people's republic and even nike took a stand. They did it in the least inflammatory.

"Got to charter. This is a weekly chart going back to. This was a really basically went from nothing in two dozen seventeen to a high of essentially ninety five and then plunged almost out of business saved by covert. If you will but what you can see there is that were. Basically plus minus. We keep trying to get above that key level of two thousand seventeen and so the final chart another way to draw the lines. Basically you have converging. Trend lines caught a web. And call it in a symmetrical trial doesn't matter it represents a massive standoff ninety. You my bet. Is it breaks out to the carter. Thank you will see a few minutes on carter. Braxton worth a cornerstone see grassle you have been in overstock. I have been in currently and if you look at that chart. There's a reason why i'm not in it. It's too volatile for me it's up. I think it's ninety percent or whatever that number number was. It's an atrocious number. I'd rather go with five below only up thirteen percent year to date. Maybe that one's more conservative. Take your pick. Karen urban five or over. I know none of them are your style. Overstock overstock highly coordinated with crypto. That that was really a the overlay of the very volatile. Exactly yeah so that sort of removed that that's a separate bed. You're taking on crypto and overstock at the same time probably urban. I think you know consumers flush with cash. Young people flush with cash stimulus checks for the short term expensive. It's not crazy expensive at all. Gem i- dollar tree which we're going to talk about i think soon but i but five in that category is of the charts. Carter just showed is is the most interesting to me. I'm actually worried about that. Rt because i think the rt is read it. And i still believe that there's a lot of froth in that even though he's right That spike from jan twenty et cetera is something that that clearly. It's begun to work off. But i still think if you look at the trading action in that name. It's too highly correlated to names. That i don't think fundamentally make sense. So again i think the five below and that type of trade and that segment fundamentally i think the evaluations that are actually quite interesting for where we are in the cycle. We've talked many times on this show. About how our team may not be the retailers that you think should be in the x. Rt and they're actually smaller more specialty names. That do tend these days at least to be read at names delano. Which ones do you like. The ones card urban five overstock as well. But you know. I think i agree with karen. On urban outfitters we have people flush with cash. We still have no impending further reopening. I believe that's still second apple. Becoming urban outfitters would be great play for investors at this point coming up. We're just a few days.

"Welcome back ball court. I am your host coach drew and this is the world of basketball now. If you remember season one during tyler sees a while we used to have this little segment of calmness this kick it when we spoke about how you basketball sneakers and everything match up and make sure that it actually mingled that branched out and started his own podcast. Besides that right now. I definitely had a basketball topic that has spilled over into the sneak. A world yes. Nike just heard words about the out and is possibly for the final tom according to reports. Yes on april thirteen. The contract that night had with the kobe bryant state has now. A lot of people are speculating. That the reason why it has ended is because vanessa bryant wanted actually a lifetime contract. And i could definitely go ahead and see that being for the fact that copious a lifetime brain. That is something that would actually be financially financially. Successful throughout but nike was looking for that nike was actually going to put a couple years. The contract of that that on the contract to go ahead and Go ahead and mendon to see where things go but as was also unhappy with some of the some of the hiding being released as much adding where as available as possibly could be so due to that the the Collaboration of kobe bryant kobe. Bryant is eight and nike company has going in so a lot of people are now like in a frenzy in a way. 'cause we don't know where it's gonna go. That's what's gonna happen as far as the kobe brand. So that means a lot of kobe's now extremely valuable so if you are holding onto a pair of ventures and especially if it's the original branches that they're never going to be coming out again so it's something that you definitely want to go onto the resale value on that is going to be absolutely novel so with this happen. As far as nike goes is gonna is gonna actually help nike out. Because just 'cause they're resale value is going to make all the dough sneakers very very of exclusive the purchase. So as mike. If i would if i was them i would definitely hold some back. You buy stock for later. Go ahead and them released as a collector's edition and dissuade. They can make more money off of it. The sad part about it is that the cobra bright state probably will see very little funds due to that down nike did release a statement stated that they are going to going to do everything to make sure that they preserve the memory of kobe bryant and as well as With the with the final release they all going to go ahead and try and maintain that i. I really am kind of scared. Because i speculate possibly going to be good thing. That can be thing. But i've no when it comes to corporations and it comes to athletes especially when they're not in control and unable to manage the control of being in never really works out positively the end so this could possibly be. I will split between nike kobe. Bryant state all right so let's go ahead and jump into a coach's look right. I want to go ahead. And take the coaches look at dick's first of all you know. I want to jump into. I want to talk about the steph. Curry alive steph. Curry has been playing. Pretty good basketball. You know. I'm talking really good basketball over these last twelve game and what. I mean by really good basketball. I'm talking about really good basketball. He's averaging roughly thirty nine points over this time as well as lighten is up in the old left right and left. he's making it very difficult for for opponents to really even be in. This situation will be in his in his area because he puts them in places that they cannot actually beat him. So what. I want to go ahead and do right now is i want to actually jump in and i wanted to take a closer look at some of the place that he has actually done over this time as a matter of fact the one that i really wanna talk about is justice. Last week he actually went off on his own brother. You know he was absolutely phenomenal in this one. And let's go ahead and take a look right here all right now steph. Curry is a different kind of breed. He just starts it all right when the clip starts off comes off in a big and both gary wright with his shot. he's shooting back and forth. He was he shot a forty nine points. Now step was actually going against us now. This is the thing that i liked it. Start off kinda slow for him. You know went opus it. I'm sorry went over. Three over the first couple of points and dan as and then he had a turnover but as you can clearly see here. He kept on turn it on. It was turned it up three point after three pointer and a shot up the and got harder and harder as the game went on. He was a man possessed played out there on the hardest level and he was actually catching a break catch issue. You know he was actually making points and doing things that when you look at it. You're saying okay. But this is the stuff that we remember. This is the stuff that we saw previously. And of course the cloud your judgment when you watch things like this and these highlights thank to yourself. Maybe an here but reminded this is just a small sample size of what stuff to do. And this is record breaking step at that. I'm talking to is the most three pointers that was actually scored in in nba history. Nobody's ever scored that many three pointers. I understand i agree is has been phenomenal to watch as absolutely amazing and has brought up the to once again we take a look at these images. Bought absolves once again. Is he ruining basketball. Is he ruining a. You is ruining youth basketball because now every kid is taking up your shots and pulling because that has an amazing gift to go ahead and hit de shots. Let me go ahead and tell you this. I think personally if people could just watch his workout.
