"You can't music you have to go to your browser by their exactly. And that's what Spotify is done. And that's what Netflix is is doing now. Netflix says we paid this could save was eight or nine billion dollars a year, but not paying the apple thirty percent. You know, what's fascinating to me. Is that in this sense? Apple is they're playing two roles. One. Is there a payments processor? So they're sort of like MasterCard and visa, although they have MasterCard and visa as their partners as well. So they're layered on top of that. And they're also running the some of the infrastructure for selling and servicing and updating the apps. They're so they're so those are two things that are of value to any provider. The real problem seems to be the the the arbitrary nature of the thirty percent fee and how it's thirty percent or or nothing and it goes down. If this is a recent change down the fifteen percent now after the second year in this, right? And that's and that I think is to bring it back to what tomorrow's thing is going to be this is. Yet another way for them to sort of ease off on the the thirty percent still make you know, still make significant revenue on it. But allow some of the the other players to participate more fully here's in the dream. I'm going to watch for tomorrow, and it will be a little side note. But it might be the most important thing apple announces tomorrow apple is doing a credit card with Goldman Sachs. And I think that's the real play here because it's one thing to sell music or rent storage space or offer TV shows. It's another thing entirely to take a cut of every transaction on the platform. And that's ultimately what apple is going to do. In fact, apple Goldman Sachs, their partner in this also has a Bank and online Bank, right? And I would not be at all surprised for apple to do financial services. And at that point that if we're really is a walled garden. Net is absolute locking. I mean it fits their business model. They're always they've always been about owning the core technologies behind the products. And if if they are now a financial services company. Yeah. The I mean, it doesn't make sense for them to be paying that percents. Apple pay. They get a smaller cut than they would as a credit card. Right. They get a bigger cut. Of course, if you get Apple Pay, plus the credit card, you get even more. I think that's the announcement to watch for does that will make my I get an April full story about apple into the health insurer to if a number of years ago. I would have ice shirts. And the the reason it would work if because the demographic of people who own apple are actually, probably one you could fill the insurance to a little bit cheaper and still make money, but it was a joke. But now, you're telling me it may not be a joke. Yeah. And I I'm not talking about Google. Did this a branded credit card? Yeah. Somebody else's running the credit card. It's minor standing we'll see tomorrow, and maybe it won't become clear, but they will announce a credit card tomorrow. And I think it will not be a brand credit card, but it will actually be apple financial, you get you get apple goodies..
"nine billion dollars" Discussed on Yep. I Did That
"Hitting ninety nine billion dollars in two thousand eighteen which is from thirty five percent from two thousand or up thirty five percent from two thousand you. Yeah. That's a huge jump ninety nine billion dollars in two thousand fifteen and I can only imagine from two thousand fifteen to two thousand nineteen. Yeah. What that is. That's come out. Yeah. Is the same for year gap in that was at thirty five percent increase. So that's yeah. From two thousand to two thousand fourteen pet food sales doubled to twenty two. Billion dollars and is expected to grow. And according to Mattel, seventy nine percent of US pet owners say the quality of pet food is as important as their own. And so it's the association that dog's food needs to be at up to par like what we would be eating near the fourteenth century going back to like, where pet food kind of, like started or how we've been thought to take care of our pets. A. Huntsman. Remember what he was called her Snow White. No. We entered beauty and the beast. His his name was guest on the third. And he actually wrote a book on how to take care of his greyhounds and say how they should be cared for. And they used them for hunting and things like that. And I was like seriously this who guest on was like based off of good. And he said like what he should eat. So that was kind of the first, like, print where people were talking about, like, what dog should eat in the middle ages to the nineteenth century very little concern was given to what tugs were eating. Most of them were eating whatever scraps Romans didn't eat. So it was a lot of things that I was reading that it was like onions onions, Kilda. So maybe don't give your dog ins. They probably were fine. They had test of steel xactly that's true. And then the desire for prepared dog food. Became more popular because of veil ability owners protecting investments because at the time dogs were an investment or pets were an investment and then marketing so marketing came around saying, like, hey, this packaged food is out, you need this. You don't need to be feeding your dog table food. You'd be feeding them this food. And then the twentieth century foods specifically formulated for nutritional needs started to be found. And then the veterinary services was actually stab wished within the twentieth century. And that's whenever they had specific like this is much protein. And then it became regulated that these companies had to have these things in their foods. Whatever food companies are now jumping on the pet trends, and it's actually where most of them are getting their money from because it's such a viable thing and Colgate. Palmolive smucker's Nestle and Mars are one of the actually biggest companies that have pet products at all of us are most Americans are purchasing. Wow. That's crazy. Yeah. And like we for a while. Like we had to give Corey like a special food. But then we went to we chose Merrick. We're like it's a good one. It's from Amarillo. We actually like, Pat, our friend knows the family like started Merrick dog food. We're like, okay we're cool. And then we were buying in the like shop in Burbank. They're like, you know, pedigree bought this, right? And they changed the formula. There was only a two year contract that said you had to keep the formula the way we make it so that it's like actually all natural alrea, Nick products. And then once that contract ended which ended this year, a change Merrick is no longer the same as what it was his pedigree. Yeah. And so all these big companies are buying these smaller ones, because we have this mentality that our dog's food should be up to par of what we would eat rightly so because we know what food does to us, right? It does to animals as well. And so all these big companies are actually purchasing little ones as an take. Their quality way down so sad because it's becoming mass marketed at that, right? That's happening to our food to lily out of like, oh my God. A lot of the good brands get bought up by bigger Han. Then they change. I know whenever I was looking this up. It was like all the things that you think are small brands are actually owned by this. And it was like Annie's. It's actually owned by whatever cautiously is owned by Nestle here encapsulation, which was like around supplement. Come they got bought by Nestle? I think that's one I used always tell a lot of people to take. I don't so much anymore. I know I don't know what to think about it. I mean it's like they're just trying to get it on that in on the money is the same as like to buying water. You're still like feeding Pepsi or coke? Yes, they own all the water companies, our water bottles, and stuff like that, too, which is a whole nother conversation. But yes. So that's kind of just a history very quick, one an interesting area. Oh where like there's a lot of money going into the pet industry, and there's a big shift right now, especially going into, like raw food, and can be and all that stuff. And so we just wanted to talk about what we've done John. It's been on a huge journey with penny and I've had some things with my dogs over the so perfect. Yeah. I'm just going to start this off with. So when we got we've had two dogs since being married. Nora and penny nor. Do you need to say her full name your own? She lives with my parents now 'cause she hated living in our apartment so much. She was the saddest dog ever and she wanted a room to run. Yes and Penny's always been an apartment dog. So she doesn't know anybody doesn't even know that her life. But both of them have like allergy they're highly allergic, dogs aren't necessarily allergic to them, but yeah, they have a lot of their breeds have a lot of allergies, their sense. Yeah. So the first time I started even thinking about dog food was with Nora back in the day when we first got her, she's a little pup. She was itching so bad. So I knew get her on our didn't know but I researched and was like, I'll try grain free and, like not chicken because apparently, those are the two to the top offenders, 'cause usually chicken byproducts, so it's not like chicken. Yeah. And taking her that her coat got super soft and she's like way better. So I knew that coming in my little Nora shout out now coming with penny. When we got her, she had something called Dima, Dima, Dedic, DHEC, mange d mode tick, demon decks. Is what it's called deem it. I think it's deemed deck mange, okay? That's my so good. There's different types of Maine in this is one that is not necessarily contagious. One that happens to dogs, that are immuno-compromised. She was four months old. She'd already been on round of antibiotics still had it had. I don't think she had been dipped yet they have chemical dips, that do do on them. Took her to the vet. They recommended that we do some dips, and maybe another course of antibiotics EMMY being me was all, I'm going to try to fix. I'll fix it on my own date without chemicals. Because if I was like, applying the same rules to her life, that I would to mind. Yeah. Like if I'm immuno-compromised in. That's why have something popping up. I feel like throwing a bunch of chemicals and antibiotics into that mix is potentially going to just compromise me more. Especially considering, like, yeah. Everything read about all that. So I took her home immediately. She came to us on a bad dog food. So I knew right then like let's change that. Yes. So we got her on a grain free chicken free dog food. Again, we're using taste of the wild. There's like a lot of mixed reviews on it. But I with Nora she was a small dog, and we bought origin, which is like ninety dollars a bag or the big bags, but it would last forever because the tiny dog, but pennies a big dog, so we can't buy big bags to panga, if like the food at all gets, like dry or like old. She vomits really I have like a thing that I like seal it in. I put it in a sealed container now. And so now it's fine. But like we can buy a bigger bag now, but it was like if yet but if it like got all like towards the bottom of the bag, she would just bomb is so high maintenance, she so sensitive, and so ridiculous. Tasted wildlife later, fifty bucks. It's like forty seven bucks for big bag. So that usually a month and a half say, that's all we get we get Zignachor the salmon doing the high prairie. I think it's like bison. Nice high-fat that makes more sense for penny yet. Your dog. Yeah. So I got her on that, and I was like reading all about mange in how much you're like immune compromised in, like your gut can be affected by that. So I was like, I'm going to give you bone breath. So I started putting bone broth on her food. Yeah. And from there, I was like I don't wanna do this chemical, but I don't want to do her skin was like patchy a little flaky like so sad. Looking. Patchy. I mean, she didn't have hair, a lot of places her skin wasn't patchy her hair was patchy here was patching and her skin was patchy it was a little bit of hotness. Mange's little HAMAs. Yeah. Yeah. So I started looking up like what could I put on her besides chemicals that could maybe do the job? And I started researching essential oils. Yeah. And there was a decent amount of reviews of one product in particular, that I actually ordered and then didn't end up needing to use because I made. I ended up working out before it. Yes. But I would recommend it if somebody didn't want to do this. So what I ended up doing was getting co about a Cup of coconut oil in, then I put hold on. I wrote this down twenty drops of, lavender, five drops of peppermint, ten drops of frankencense, and ten jobs of lemon crat. Lemongrass lemon crafts and either through just once in like her civic acid shampoo is what you have to use on pumped about, but it kinda made sense to me that you need to like you to clean surface to put all this stuff back on. Yeah. Well, because what means is actually little might, so there little, like, living, organisms on you. So reading about all this. I found out that you by using the coconut oil. It actually suffocates the mites. Likely, she didn't have the contagious. Well, I was just thinking about you remember the thing awhile back where like people zoomed in on, like someone's allegis was no, like just everything, like there's little things alive on you and so just thinking about thinking about it. And it was making me. Sad grossed out at my like I thought of it. I think a lot of people like when people get it in there. I lash is usual. Yeah. Though, this is I think, like there's just always organization, there's always something on you. Yeah. Bacteria. Where it's like bad. It's just it's the natural things that are on. You. Gross. It is gross this, especially grossed me, out, coconut oil, though, like suffocates them. So if you coat them in this oil. Like they can't breath Dahbi a-. And it was like, why would I chemical Dipper? Yeah. So I was pretty faithful like once or twice a day, I would her whole body down with this mixture. I did it for. They say you need that usually will take like, sometimes a couple of months, and I was good within. Two weeks. It was like completely gone, and, and I kept going about two weeks. More and nothing has ever come back. That's awesome. And I really attribute it to the food, and then the take your back to the vet. No. I was hoping that you would they'd be like. Well, the vet that I took her to was like the person she had been her shots. And then I took her to our new vet who only saw her after she was healthy. Yes. But they were like there's no mange. Yep. Then there you go. See, that's the that's the verification for science. Yeah. People that are like it worked. It's on a saying, hey, she looks better. There's no main yet. And I really think a huge part of, it's the food in her gut problem. Yeah. But topically the lavender peppermint frankencense lemongrass all of those huge part in it, too, and using the high quality essential oils matters used young living for all of these. I like Edens garden. But I say young living for all of these. And I'm just going to.

"Twenty nine billion dollars in fees. Expenses. Crazy twenty nine billion dollars. That is quite a bit of money. So all right. Anything more that you want that before you move on? Nah. I wrote a piece of I don't last week about all the things I learned up post that. But I think it was great to see just the total outpouring of support for him and kind of get the recognition that he definitely deserved. You know, there are a lot of seniors in investing that are. I don't want to say any day now. But certainly over the next ten fifteen years like Buffett and Munger and Markowitz still alive and Malki land. I don't think any of them will receive the unanimous outpouring of support as okay, it's moving on a friend. Dan, Egan wrote a post about how he budgets his personal cash flow in this actually came about part of the way through one of our back slack channels where Jake mechanism picking myself asked him because he talked about this. How he gets his money coming in any fairies it outright await for all these different expenses in investment accounts in he has it all automated, so he wrote his whole he's called how one behavioral scientists optimizes his monthly cash flow. And this is really interesting because I think this is one of the personal finance areas. Where people probably have the hardest time because a lot of people. Don't have household budget. I don't think about this intelligently. What did you think about Dan's budget here? I thought it was great. I like the way he described he said his budget is inspired by golf balls and beer method of prioritization, where he gets the big things done. I this is like that idea where you pour the rocks into a jar. And it looks like it's full. And then you pour some sand in there. It looks like it's still fall many pour some beer over the top of it. It still keeps filling up so that he has to get the big stuff done. I which is kind of the way that I think about my budget to is getting those expenses right out of the way and automating them. And I think the best thing he doesn't. Here's he says that the approaches saving to be ability to pay and then the spending his gospel part. That's basically, I approach it too. So that was the method advocated by that wealthy Barbara book. And I think it's simple. But it's so powerful that you have to automate your savings. Whether it's ten percent, or whatever it is. You have to pay yourself first. And if you don't do that automatically which is so easy to do these days. It's very hard to do that. Because as Dan said, one of the hardest lessons, I've learned is that I should bet it gets my own self control. So as far as what Dan is doing exactly with having such minimal amount in savings because he is pretty meticulous about where? Spending is going. There's obviously a lot of ways to skin the cat. But he has found something that clearly works for him. Which is great. They automation is the keep you're never going to save. What's leftover because what's leftover almost always gets spent? That's the way it was Jerry Seinfeld routine. Like, it's amazing how the amount of news in a single day fits perfectly into a newspaper every single day. That's the same thing with your spending. If it's there, you're gonna spend it. So it's not there. It's much easier. Prioritize what's left over in figure out what really matters to you..

When other companies results are better at the top of their search because they want to promote their own version of that business, and they because before it was all about has to be the best result will do anything the best result. But over time that gets compromised because you're like, well, we can't build our business that we don't get more people to it. So we'll just push this. Here's a data the data. Point in that data point is nine billion dollars. Which is what Google pays apple paid apple last year for all of the data from safari searches at the biggest hole with all four of these is is that is the Google search inside of the iphone? Yeah. Or the minute. You put a Facebook app on the iphone? So what happens does? Other people are doing with their hardware. They may not be collecting it. But it's a little bit hands. Wh if Google gave us nine billion dollars in supposedly twelve billion dollars this year. It's. Make an argument you can make an argument that an adult should be allowed early. Anybody should be allowed to install a Facebook app or Google app if they want that's right. But the search thing is the one that's bothersome. No choice box it flashes up and says you want Google to be default search engine or if apple which ones do you want to duck duck, go up Shen, right? Yeah. At least give us that browser roulette thing that they did in the EU lets you choose the second the right to knowledge, and I like this the to know what data's being collected in why how forthright is apple about that. Do they tell us? We know Google does by the way, Google's dashboards very good in. This regard. Apple has download you. Download a big binary blob that it has things like you made an items purchase on January. PR though. Right. That's new. Yeah. Yes. Because they were required to do it. And because they never collected enough to actually never did it internally. They had no interest in his view looking down on how to structure for what? They're. Yeah. It wasn't. It looks like downloaded his very much stuff because they don't want. It like apples reciprocally doesn't want to. They don't want the accountable. That's the first one minimize right? And they just I point and apples trying to they're trying to burn the all the bridges behind them, as they you know, because they're because they're trying to get into situation where like if you look at this this fight, which I still think it's going to be a big deal from Australia is Apple's trying to basically cut know break everything. So that it would take a long time. It'd be really hard to even get back to get in your data. You know, they're they're going as far the opposite direction of the search companies in social companies as you can third point the right to access, and that's that download that apple offers Google offers the same thing. I don't know how completed is Facebook. Now does too I think that's GDP are requiring learn so it's not like they had any choice so everybody I now thanks to you. And this is why a national law.

But they're definitely these musical geniuses of these students that need to be developed that need to be inspired. If we are cutting our resources, right? If we are overcrowding our classrooms, I can't help. But to call that out. We'll Gloria Martinez and Nick Melvoin stand by here for a second. Howard bloom education reporter for the Elliott times you've been waiting so patiently on the line. They're very much. Appreciate it B R B R arbiter here. I mean, we're hearing very passionate specific arguments from both Gloria Nick here that seemed pretty diametrically opposed. I mean, how how do you read it? How do you see it? Well, one thing here that we see is an and they are passionate advocates for their sides. I know them both. But the the there's a lack of trust here, and there's a lack of trust because of the past history. The there were big. Her battles for control the school board between supporters of charter schools. And and the union was the other major funding source in these elections, the most expensive elections in any school board in in the nation's history, and these bitter divisions have created a lack of trust. And you know, part of what glory is referring to in her fears about the worst that could come from the school board and the superintendent is that the district hasn't shared its reorganization plan. You know, they they've been developing this plan with consultants for months and the unions, assuming the worst about it. Now in the district side, I think Austin buehner the superintendent would say that he doesn't feel that he's a good faith partner in the district. I the union all the union wants to do is criticize him and you'd make target out of him. So maybe he's reluctant to put this plan forward because he feels the union would just try to shoot it down. And this lack of trust has has colored these negotiate. Nations. I, and you know, the union in striking now. Yes, they the target of the source of money is Sacramento. But one reason the union is striking now is because this is when they have their leverage, right. This is their contract. They have a bully pulpit here. So in some ways the district is not the target of the union action. It's lawmakers and Sacramento, but the strike can't go on forever at some point has to be solved and people who have a lack of trust have to start talking to each other. We'll Howard bloom education reporter for the Los Angeles Times. Thank you so much for joining us. And I'll let you go..
