But i think it should be more like he pays all the rent and i pay utilities when i brought it up. He says he's already being generous. Because we're sharing the exact same amount of space so it should really be even like god now. I feel like more of a roommate than a girlfriend. What do i do pay half what you do. Yeah i perceived them. I think you start selling him sexual favors and get it down a little of this. You're paying utilities the rent this. I think it's all just one pot. It's all money and it just comes out of the pot. I don't know if you it anymore. Business transaction. I don't get that when my girlfriend was living with me. We when we were living together.

"A jerk is like okay. People are like some different about this guy. Hey don't be a jerk. Actually give people specifically brothers and sisters in christ the benefit of the doubt. You like you teach. Second graders that but the church. We've lost her mind. Devouring one another benefit of the doubt wanting to kind of isolate in a tribe vilifying other churches and i'm saying let's not do that. Let's not let storyline be that place where we get into the outrage of our day but rather just determine by the grace of god to love one another serve one another bless one another give one another the benefit of the doubt champion in one another more with one. Another fifty. Nine one another's in the new testament. Call us to be the kind of people they won't give into that nonsense but shine a light in that darkness said and just the the point being. You don't have to be jerk. Show each other some grace and that goes with the employer employee situation right now to A lot of people angry with their employers over minutes a lot of employers frustrated with the employees who Everything is disrupted now and a lot of people. I i actually was talking to a friend of mine and he is. I gotta say this is a very good friend. I've known him for a long time and he so annoyed with his employees who are parents and because some of them they're have to reshuffling around because schools are closed. Like it'd be home with their kids. They can't leave their kids so annoyed. I'm like dude this is. We're in a time right now that none of us living have ever experienced. None of us have experienced. We all get frustrated with it. Just just calm down. Calm down your employees are the same good people. They were a year ago. We're just in uncharted territory. And all of us are trying to chart it. There's no good guidance. Nobody trusts anybody. So we've all got an advocate where arrive at a different solutions. Were all trying to go at it together. Just just show each other. Some grace be nice you don't have to be biblical donkey. You don't have to be a jerk. It is amazing to me how far you can go in life just by not being jerk and it's also amazing to me. How few people seem to have learned that lesson of late in these uncharted times. Nobody really knows what they're doing. They're all just trying to get through life in a muddled mess right now. Employers as well in the biden administration not to make a political point here but the by administration has just muddied the water further for everyone with his mandate. So thank you being able to stop by and give some clarity to it. Bottom line right now. Employers just focus on your business. Don't worry about this. The rules aren't written. Why hello there. I would love to have you on the program if you want to. The phone number is eight. Seven seven nine seven eric. Eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five. Y'all nobody's now. I i got to explain this to you. Because if you don't live in texas you may not know what is we have had now a couple of them open in georgia. I'm actually pulling up their website to figure out. Where are the bookies of america yacht to alabama to in florida to in georgia. You got a bunch in texas there. I mean they're they're in texas georgia florida and alabama. And even then. You've you've got one in leeds alabama when locks alabama one in daytona beach. Florida one in saint augustine. Puerto one in calhoun georgia worn on. Water robin georgia. The rest of them are texas so most of you listening right now have never experienced buggies. It is an experience. It is one of the few places on planet earth outside of ikya where i can get a panic attack because they are massive. I think the one near me has forty or fifty pumps for getting gas but it buggies you can get brisket and it's good brisk it. It is like your own little barbecue restaurant inside the gas station. And it's incredible and at bookies you can get a beaver nuggets which you eat one. You're going to eat the whole bag. Buggies is amazing. It is a colt in texas. When i go to texas. When i go to austin in particular i drive to buggies. There's a bookies and bastrop texas. And i drive there when i leave the airport because i love bugis. Bugis is wonderful. Well the problem is that the Owner of bucky gas stations arch appaling has given money to greg abbott and texas republicans. This is from the houston chronicle arch beaver appaling. The third owner of the texas based gestation jane buggies has back to the texas gop for some time. Progressive activists are coming for buggies. They are opposed to the owner of bugis giving to texas republicans. That's right. There is an organized backlash coming. A woman on facebook warned progressives that the owner of buddies is giving to republicans according to transparency. Usa appleans has given to twenty republican packs including two packs supporting dan. Patrick lieutenant governor governor greg abbott attorney general accident speaker of the house dade phelan Former speaker dennis. Bonnin unsurprisingly apple has given the most. Greg abbott am one point two five million dollars or so and he's donated since july fourteenth four hundred ninety thousand dollars towards greg abbott superpac and now progressives are upset. Y'all can't hate bugis. Bugis is the greatest gas station on planet earth. Even though i can have a panic attack there are so many people who go into bookies but it is incredible gas station and the left wants to destroy it because they're heretics you see. This is what happens when you replace religion with politics. You have to destroy the heretics and at buggies. The owner happens to be republican who cares. It's phenomenal shopping. Experience if you want great brisket and plenty of gas station pumps. It's just insane that this is happening and yet this we're gonna see more and more of this unless companies go to the left. Progressives are gonna boycott them..

"This is the ramsey call of the day. Part of the ramsey network joining me today is ramsey personality. Ken coleman john is with us in reno nevada. Hi john welcome to the ramsey show. Hey candidate thanks so much for news so on monday to try to summarize my question quite so i worked for a company. I'm a manager report to all of the corporate. Your ship equally and Right now i'm kind of struggling in my job because there's a lot of factors that basically on finding that my values are at odds with. There's now i want to my work The way that they have do my work. I'm not proud of it and it's really really highly stressing out my wife and i are on each east number two and we I we make hundred fifty about one hundred fifty thousand a year total together forty nine so my question. I make a hundred thousand myself. Okay and what is it that they're asking you to do that. You don't want to so it's just a. There's nothing immoral or unethical. It's it's kind of the way that they wanted to do my work for at project. I'll be almost ninety percent done with it. Then they trashed it and it happens over and over again. They're very disorganized. The corporate team is if this unified. They have cliques. That disagree with each other. And i'm caught in the middle and i i'll follow orders for this person and the other person that come stop so i have to stop. I've asked them to get unified but they it's just their modus operandi. It's it's the way they've always run this company and i don't see it changing. What do you do i'm a. I'm a medical clinic manager so give me an example of. They've asked you to do a project you do it. Or you're ninety percent done and then they trashed it. I wanna know the why they would trash it in that example. Yeah good example with the They wanted to start. Find a seat department. So i was lame groundwork for that complain. So is hiring wise We are in our final interview with the pharmacist. You're gonna hire and the next day. They cancelled the project. The reason was finances. And that's understandable to me. It's just a complete lack of planning and total disorganization. They don't really have. They don't really budget carefully. They don't really follow their plans. Okay so when they communicated that the finances weren't there you understood that but but the issue is they just kind of set you off on this path. And they didn't do the planning that irritates you. And you're getting to a point really frustrated so you're working for working for a group of medical people and your jobs to run the business. Yeah my job is to the clinic here. And it's a separate from where the corporate offices yeah So what was your question you about ready to get to the question. We asked you some questions. What was your big question. Yeah my big question is How quickly should i leave. 'cause i'm pretty sure i'm going to leave. I just don't know how hard to push it. I would like to leave right away. My heart's kind of left You know we're in. We're in step number two and We'll make really good money. And if i were to leave i want to get out of To get out of the state we're in and If i were to leave it it'd be a move and a pay cut at least at this point because i'm very inexperienced and i don't have a degree so entry level i basically the entry level manager at whatever position i take up well. This is a math thing so we don't leave until we've got a something good to leave to. I understand that you're in a really tough situation. Where your hearts left you and in a normal situation if you had no debt and you could just move quickly Then i'd say leave quickly. But i think that you've got keep this path going where you're paying off the debt. You guys are making really good money. I would challenge your assumption that you moving into another opportunity running a clinic that you'd have to start all over. I mean you've got some good experience running this clinic. Yeah year and a half the. Why couldn't you go run another clinic. Who says you can't go. Who says you have to take a pay cut. That's absolute bs. Yeah i guess the gulf my question is just how you know. The company really loves me. They're always telling me they love me. They're they're putting a lot of of trust need dependent on the. I don't think that matters. I think you laugh. Yeah you're you're sick and tired of their disorganization in the chaos and the disrespect of your work. Yeah it's only going to get worse for you unless they somehow they're not gonna fix this. You're gone so where are you getting this idea that you have to take a pay cut jobs. We're looking at in other areas. We'd wanna move. They usually start around sixty thousand up to eighty or ninety thousand and So i think you need to get an eighty or ninety thousand dollar job lined up and so you quit your hundred thousand dollar job. And the ninety thousand has an upside one hundred and twenty. Yep and you don't you don't think it's like i guess i'm really so you like out in it because the company's been so good to me other okay been good to you. There's some guilt you're dealing with because you think that they've done all this for you and you leaving them is going to make you a bad guy. That's simply not the case. You don't owe them a life of mediocrity their disaster. You're gonna end up presenting these people that you're worried about. This already. resent them well. Yeah so i mean. There's no reason for guilt. None none this is not your mama. It's your boss. Yeah i mean you know. Go get a job. Go get a position with somebody. That's organized and that has a game plan has a mission and you can lead the charge in the mission and gold land a job and then turn in your two week notice and move out of nevada to the place that you're going to go work. Yeah i have one other thing on this. My family is telling me. I need to stay because i'm the kind of person that will help them get organize. Your family is not in charge of your life. You are in charge of your life. Yeah i know. I just spent the last five minutes telling us how crummy place this is now. Stressed out you are and then you spent the next three minutes trying to talk us into how wonderful it is. How you're superman and you're there to save them. You're the savior. This is a bunch of crap man. You need to quit after we get the job dave. His family is not telling him to stay because they think he can turn it around his family's told him to because they don't want him to leave breaking news right there. I know i know they're in nevada. Family is saying. I think you should stay. Because you're the one guy who can turn these wildcats into properly trained felines. Oh they don't want you to leave. Forget these butterflies to fly in formation. Right family does want wanting to leave. Yeah that's so. Sorry or they're just afraid also and that's okay. Yeah so jon you need to go get another job making ninety with an upside of one twenty in a state that you want to live in and you need to take accept the position and then turn in your two week notice sir. That's the answer to you. You're not you're not gonna be happy five years from now if you stay in this job. It's not going there. Thanks for tuning into the ramsey call of the day.

"ninety thousand dollars" Discussed on The Smoking Tire

"Eight hundred gs is a a good entry level adventure bike it's The the twelve hundred The are twelve hundred. Has big boxer twin. It's a lot more power. And i wouldn't. I wouldn't do that as a first bike. the f. Eight hundred has a parallel twin. It's a little narrower. It's it's as tall or almost as tall But it's a little lighter Easier to maneuver. So i might try something like that As far as an adventure bike. i mean the harley panamerican That i wrote recently and you could see my review of it It has a big powerful engine up to. I believe it's one hundred and seventy horsepower. But you can write it in a reduced power mode where drops the power down to one hundred fifteen horsepower so you can really It was not super heavy. it's pretty pretty maneuverable. pretty agile. The height adjustable suspension means that you come to a light and it you know it. Settles see santer flat foot and it has traction control in abs. and all those kinds of things so You're you wouldn't get into so much trouble. Alternatively you know something deeply used us us keilor a used forever. yeah Yeah pretty much Justin becker has a okay twenty thirteen. Bmw active hybrid three. It's a bmw. It's a three thirty five with an electric motor in the torque converter and i love the hybrid powertrain. Are there any hybrid performance cars. You're looking forward to at less than a thousand one hundred thousand dollars. No i'm looking forward to the aftermarket. Hybrid was that. Come on von leo. If more people try that that seems interesting and kind of exciting but I mean no. I'm sorry to say it's a it's a one word answer but but i mean no. I'm particularly impressed. I mean i'm pressed. But i'm not excited by you. Know we just put up the video of the accurate sex which is impressive. But i'm not excited by it by owning in. And i i don't i don't aspire to own it. We drove the sf ninety ferrari impressive. But i don't aspire to own that For me I'm not interested in performance hybrids. I like I liking it. And then i like engaging drivers cars and i think hybrids are great Especially extended range like the volt are great as appliances if you can't charge as much frequently But there's nothing about a hybrid powertrain that inspires me or makes me wanna spend my own money on one From sporting perspective. Because it will. We know it's gonna add weight. That's the problem you know. The cars are already getting too heavy. And then if you take something fun camaro or something and then add hybrid powertrain. You're adding even more way to which doesn't need miata like you're gonna ruin what makes it great or b. r. z. Right it adds weight. It doesn't need an ed power. It doesn't need You know right i don't. I don't think that that. The addition of that hybrid powertrain to go from a ferrari f eight to the sf. Ninety makes absolutely no difference in the real world. These cars are both insanely fast I know in the nfl. The hybrid powertrain is part of what makes the handling so magical. Well that's cool And it's and it's impressive. What it can do. But i don't i i don't want to own that i think has so many other flaws. That almost detract from how good it is to drive in in the performance that like the interior is so dull and an constraint like it feels small. There's not a lot of places to put things and it's very uninteresting to sit and look around your cabin in that right there. You're like well if being in the car is so much experience in addition to driving it. And you've just lost that. Yeah it it really reduces and i mean i know the first intersex was not the most interesting place to sit either but i think it moved this ball forward and we appreciate that more. But there's other options out there at that price point. Yeah brad has a twenty eleven range rover. Five point oh as hse. That just won't stop breaking. Should i keep fixing it and stay in the whole or replace it with four by pickup truck diesel. Well you're asking a financial financial question. This is not a car question. I mean there's literally nothing you're going to do with this rate and like your ranger is not going to stop breaking like if it's been breaking over and over like it ain't getting newer. The parts of the parts aren't Aren't going to be in any better condition You know you're talking about a ten year old vehicle that was designed with a ten year service life. You're at the end of the the intended service life. Like i've learned this press launches. What intended service. Life is Range rovers not have an intended service life beyond ten years. Do not have it intended service life beyond hundred thousand miles. Wow so if yours is older than that and works has more miles than that. And it works. You are the exception. You're not the rule The only vehicle that i know of that is designed with an intended service. Life over ten years is the land cruiser which is a twenty five year design. And that's why it's ninety thousand dollars toyota. Because the actual hardware is more robust. And the things that can break are simpler and durable in proven Old range rovers. I mean if you're dumping money into it now you're gonna keep dumping money into it forever. So i can't tell you to to replace it with an f to fifty because i don't know if you want to be driving around enough to fifty. I feel like the fact he's asking. It tells me that you don't love it anymore or as much as you need to keep throwing money at it like if you can get something especially a newer pickup truck this can have lots of new features ride. Nice be quiet They do a lot of things. Really well in twenty eleven. You might be just as happy with that as you would with the range rover and yeah you don't get to like pull up and be like range over but but range over years. It's broken all the time. I try to ask me how i know. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Having a having saying you have a luxury vehicle but the reality is your luxury vehicles. Never quite right That's not where is it. Let's in the shop again. You don't wanna do that. Yeah yeah let's see swerving eight wants to know. Where do we get our plane t shirts. Actually i've been buying the warri. what's it for. It's like one of these like it's almost like lululemon but they haven't figured out that it's lululemon yet. You know what i mean nice it's like technical fabrics it's vu. And i've been. I bought like ten shirts from them. Recently that's plain t shirts and bought on amazon. And once i found a pack i liked. I just bought twenty of them. They're twenty black t. shirts there. You go Kevin says with the next generation c. Sixty three moving to four cylinders In your opinion will eight c. Sixty three's is beginning to hold their value The model is the ninety two. Bmw look to the ninety-two bmw m. Three and it's it's it's residual values I think there's a floor will they. Will they begin their value. I mean there is a floor right. I and they will not go below that floor. Yeah and so. That's so yes. I mean look as i think too right now a manual gearbox ninety two m three is more desirable than it was when it was new Yeah probably because it sounds great You know the styling has aged very well. Well when it was new. I think it was also kind of king of the ring when it was new because at the time the c. Sixty three had such a shift transmission and was just like the. The attitude of the car was different right and now but the sixty that came out like two or three years ago also terminally well and shift quickly those. That's the sweet spot for the c sixty three. You're not like the box. He won the the the the current gen. Yeah yeah yeah. Those are fantastic. Those are very good Sean says thirty five k. Would you prefer veloce n or a new eighty-six for fun experience. I mean here's the question. I assume this person is not asking. The that's an only car question veloce a weekend toy The real question is do. You need a back seat or not. That's really more i mean. Do you want to drive the front wheels at the rear wheels. And do you need a back seat. That's much more important than which is fun. Both of those cars are leaders in their class currently but a front drive experience and a rear-drive experience and a car with a big trunk and an an real rear seats versus a car. That doesn't have those things has a real trunk. But it doesn't have real receipts. We're talking about real world practical differences so in a vacuum where it's just my fat ass and nothing else. I'd rather have the eighty-six because the steering is is a little better And a a rear-drive experience is preferable to me. Yeah all other things being equal. If i could only buy one car that i had to actually live with and carry stuff and carry people and get in and out of fifty times a day. I'd probably rather have the hyundai because it would probably be easier to live with it more..

"ninety thousand dollars" Discussed on Armstrong & Getty On Demand

"Groups that are willing to get vaccinated willing to get vaccinated are not as easy to predict as you would think but no i would agree yeah number. Healthcare companies are now insisting everybody get vaccinated entertainment companies in the rest. And i'm so tired of the whole argument. You know what i mean. Everybody's so agitated. This happened on friday around the whole covert thing is the white house announced. It would extend the moratorium on federal student. Loan payments synonymous only. Did they extend the candidate. Anybody no matter how long they'd gone without paying the rent student loan payments started under trump march of two thousand twenty. They've extended it through january of next year at some while. It's just it's forever isn't it. I mean you'll be coming up on two years of not making student loan payment based on. well nobody can work during covert. It's a help. Wanted sign every single place you go. There is a great editorial in the washington. Post over the weekend by david von drill. I think that's how you pronounce his name. But the headline is the eviction. Moratorium mess exposes the decay in american politics and he lays out the situation where you have a questionable program the eviction moratorium by a questionable agency. The supreme court steps up and in a very very adult compromise says look. You can do this till the end of the month but it cannot be continued unless there's a specific congress. Congress declines to act at all because they are arguing over whether the the minority leaders a moron or not or whether the speaker of the house ought to be battered with a gavel. Which was an exchange between kevin mccarthy and nancy pelosi change indices the armstrong and getty show but so they did absolutely nothing about it and then to quote the writer at which point members of congress hollered for the president texas is almost kingly powers in defiance of the supreme court to do the work the legislature had failed to do. That's pretty good description of our current state of politics sad. Would you rather hear about the most successful squatter in american history or the slowest pitch in baseball history. Now my squatter. He means somebody who lowered their arse toward the ground yet remained on their feet. No somebody living someplace. They shouldn't be living gurmit. Hans bull fifty two years old as previously filed a number of lawsuits and bankruptcy documents to remain in a home he bought for two hundred ninety thousand dollars in nineteen ninety eight. He bought the house in. Where is this. I can't tell where it is long island on nine hundred ninety eight. He's made only one mortgage payment before defaulting the new york post reports. He hasn't paid anything since we made one mortgage payment ninety nine eight. Hasn't paid cents the rent it's too damn. Three different owners have tried to kick him out of the house. But haven't been able to under the all the complicated laws that exist around this sort of stuff Hell how can that be. That's that's one of the most sacred rights is is the right to own and manage your own property. The best the breast movie around that the best educator about that was all has always been pacific heights. The movie at michael keaton squatting in that house and san francisco and all the crazy stuff he did in the they couldn't kick him out. Yeah that's pretty pretty true. Yeah they're usually not. You know like crazy Psychopath murderer person. But they just they just don't want to have to pay and the slowest pitch she'll be as a former pitcher. You'll be amazed by this. This is the record. Any went out there. He said he went out there. To see how slow we could throw it and still throw a strike. You have to throw stryker. Doesn't count major league baseball for the nationals. josh harrison. he threw a pitch. That was thirty. One point one miles per hour. Great scott and it was in a came in as the strike in new york jack out of the park. That's probably about as slowly as you can throw it into reaches home plate so i was. He a pitcher. i don't know from mr hamilton. Yeah is he one of those guys. Third baseman brought into mop up at the end of the veteran utility man. Joe yeah there. Yeah thirty one. That's low that's a that's bringing heat there. That is the super so coming up your race baiting story of the week the black real estate agents removed from a house at gun point the facts because many breathless stories are not repeating or not really reporting the facts. I know that shocking to you. But i a a word from our good friends at simplisafe beloved sponsor the armstrong and getty show. It's pretty cool.

Bill that got through the senate last week. Nancy pelosi still says that. Hey we ain't gonna take that up until the senate takes the three point five trillion dollar spending plan. That is really the whole. Green new deal remake america thing and that just passed the house or the house just introduced it The latest polling is a large majority of america does not approve this though. Fifty seven percent of voters do not want washington spending a total of four point seven trillion dollars on infrastructure. So the democrats are going to have some difficulty in making the argument again. That's a stretch saying it's going to be spent on infrastructure. I mean kind of the whole question. Ville one is infrastructure. Twenty three percent of it is what most people call infrastructure this human infrastructure bill the three point five trillion dollars dollar of it infrastructure by most people's view of what is infrastructure. It's making america france. Again yeah matha. So i don't. I don't think any of this stuff is going to pass. But anyway that's the headline on that and that's enough for now it's aspirational. They're just trying to say to their base. Look at what. We're trying to look lookie but it's garbage and would bankrupt the country so the big story the big race baiting story over the weekend Cam comes out of wyoming michigan. Where a black real estate agent was showing a home to a client in a son. Both of whom are also black men and the cops were called a neighbor thought it was a break in and these guys came out with guns pointing at them hands in the air etc center. It is terrifying. It's a horrible thing to happen to anyone and the clients involved or threatening to file lawsuits and say they wouldn't have been treated that way if it was a white woman and a couple of white clients and they're actually right just because of the part. That's being left out of the story in the most race baiting media outlets and that's a week prior the home had been broken into by a black suspect. Driving a black mercedes he'd parked in front broken with stealing stuff at cetera. Cops were called. The guy was apprehended and a neighbor called the cops in this instance and said that black car is out front of the house again. They're breaking in again. And so the cops showed up thinking they had some crazed repeat burglar even though the guy had been arrested and released of course because we've decriminalized crime And so these poor guys come out with their hands in the air with guns pointed at him. I just think it's incredibly unfortunate Akin i can't prosecute the cops for doing that. In these circumstances it doesn't sound race bady to me. Congratulations to the folks at hyundai. By the way it was a hyundai genesis and The neighbors thought looked like a black mercedes benz so hundai really getting their styling right. Congratulations i don't i don't know if you saw the washington post editorial board over the weekend blasted a biden. Which is the sort of thing that doesn't often happen. But the washington post editorial board. If the trump administration had ignored a direct warning the from the supreme court democrats would rightfully lineup to condemn the president. Mr biden does not get a pass on the rule of law because his heart is in the right place from the washington post That's when you know you've probably stepped in it on this whole you can't vic people thing. Yeah i wouldn't lately. Well in that editorial that i was talking about by another chapter in the washington. Post points out that. The federal government appropriated this money for mortgage relief and the rest of it or rent relief and then landlord relief and distributed it to the states. But it's not getting to anybody and so the new extension is not only well meaning to get it to people because there's no indication that anything's been fixed it's biden is violating the constitution and the orders of the supreme court to cover up for the failure of government. It's not going to reach people who need it even by this extension. So it's really awful. There's just no no justifying it at all just. Our government is so broken well. It's so giant and bloated. We've been trying to tell you that. For like twenty years. And if you're driving right now slow down. You're probably driving too fast. We've talked about this. Some this is from the l. a. times the latest data shows that the number of highway. Dead's twenty twenty was the greatest in more than a decade. Even though there were hardly any cars or trucks on the road at all early in the year. I mean that's really quite amazing. Traffic data indicates the higher death tolls related to higher average speeds in conjunction with more of those on the roads driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and a slight decline in seatbelt. use but That probably doesn't count too much. Tickets issued by the california highway patrol for speeding in excess of one hundred miles an hour from january to june. we're nearly double pre pandemic levels and the number of tickets for reckless driving. Citations grew as well so they gave it to whites as many going over a hundred than they had it anytime in pre pinnock levels. Now this is actually violating lot of say this this is a unim- using story told for your entertainment has no basis in fact but i always set my cruise control at seventy eight or seventy nine okay on the interstate and you know i've been going back and forth for fifteen years. I've never gotten well. I guess i have gotten pulled over once or twice. But it's been a long time. So that's my go-to speed eight. Seventy nine not just eighty. Because that's the mendoza line the cap cad on the radar gun. They pull you over michael. It's like pricing something. Nineteen nine hundred nine. You know you wanna keep that to off the board anyway. So normal driving. That's how fast you drive. If i'm in a hurry i'll drive that fast but my nor i've always. I've always thought that when the speed limit is sixty five where you're driving. Yes and you see. Seventy nine is okay. Has fourteen miles per hour will. And i'm i'm. I'm maybe in the fastest forty percent of drivers. I'm not in the right exactly. And the first six months a covert when the roads were pretty pretty empty and we just going in. Because we're were essential clearly passed by people going ninety to one hundred twenty times more often than i was in the congested. Pre cova period. I'm not surprised by these stats at all. That's the number of lunatics. Fine by me crazy. But that's incredible. You have way fewer miles driven but set the record for dads over recent years. That's just amazing. And if the idiots only killed themselves. I think ma- darwin. Yeah but unfortunately they frequently kill innocent as well idiots gooding me. I'm the one of the idiots. Facebook has got a new kind of like button. It's their new prayer tool. We should tell you about the sturgis. Motorcycle rally which i attended is running. And it's the biggest crowd. Maybe they've ever had and some are concerned it will be a super spreader event. Don't let a leather don't let a leather vested person coughing your face among other things that we need to tell you about what else. Oh the picks leaked out from obama's birthday parties. We have an idea of what the the swanky sophisticated were up to exactly partying late into the night over the weekend. And the way. I understand correctly that the foo fighters were heckling. The westboro baptist. Church lunatic yeah. We have audio from that. Which i guess he's pretty good. We'll hit you with that coming up to to show you how easy it is to file a claim with geico.

"ninety thousand dollars" Discussed on Ramsey Call of the Day

"If you got rid of thirteen thousand dollars in debt and had an extra ten thousand dollars income mathematically it helps. Your whole situation agreed yes. That's what i'm trying to get you to. But i don't wanna do that interfere with your walk here because because here's the thing if we if we got you making ninety thousand dollars a year by by september and it costs you your sobriety. It's gonna cost you all that money. It's because your money's gonna go away so as your job is your life because you're black. Sobriety eats all of that up. It kills it all at trump's so you you already know that but i'm just i'm saying it out loud i know it to okay so all of that to say I want you to stay volunteering somehow. But the faster you can get this debt off of you and you can raise your income a little bit while doing that while staying plugged into that community the less stress. You're going to have in your life. And i thought i heard you say zanex. Yeah okay so i. I like getting stress out of your life agreed in money money. Dead and tight budget living on your own for the first time letting longtime is is stretch and we don't need that here either. So that's that's an enemy to your sobriety in your case too so I think you're doing great. I think you're a rockstar. I think you're absolutely going to win. but let's balance between the extra income we can create and getting the money stress off versus staying plugged into making sure you're going to meetings and plugged into the the sobriety community that you love and that you're volunteering with it. Saved your life okay. So maybe you're not the treasurer for a year though. Maybe you're something else that stays home. Okay does that make sense. Does that make sense. Am i hearing you to put all these pieces together right. Did i miss something. No i think you're pretty incredible. I think you're gonna do some big stuff. You fought one of the biggest battles people can fight and you did it before you're twenty. Twenty-three pretty incredible. Thanks for tuning into the ramsey.

"He's not going to be the captain. Here's one i'm gonna ask you this question. 'cause i someone that i thought about. I'm not going to do it. But it's my answer to this question for you jordan. Dangerfield's gun yes. Who do you think and they talking about. This would be really important that it is. Who do you think is going to be the up man on the punt team that is the guy causes formation calls in guys sets them if they have to come into block rather than be outlined. And everything else. If there's gonna be fake he's gonna call it or things like that. Who do you think is gonna fill that role who is mainly one of your most important special teamers other than your specialists for the steelers this year. You know what. I was trying to think about the idea to make this list and i wasn't sure if i had anybody picked out for that i do. I do and it's someone that i thought about. I'm like you just. I just don't see someone being a captain their first year in pittsburgh. I think it's good to be mouse gilbert who they signed on the lines. That's what i think is going to be there. I think he's he was basically. In my opinion he was brought in in the jordan dangerfield role. He's special teams ace but they could probably use them more on defense. That's just what i think. I think that's a guy that that could be there and do that. A cre- thinks is going to be derek. What that he could be the guy as as the up man. So if that's the case then i could very well see what being being the the especially in captain. I dismissed him right away. Because i thought we had one year in pittsburgh and he missed a lot of time there and you know which is a shame because part of the reason i said. Hey i'm okay with steelers signing him because his best abilities is availability because he had never missed a game in his career and then he comes to pittsburgh in four game last year so all. Yeah i guess that's an honestly that was probably why he was brought in in place of roosevelt mix because of thinking he was going to be more available so if he's not available this year this will be his last year in pittsburgh or he honestly because he'll be going into his last the last year of his deal so but i'm hoping he can really be a good special teams guy anything else you wanna say about the subject he rich. You know what there was. Another person out. There are actually considered becoming forty forty percent of the snaps. And kind of and you. And i we love this guy forty percent snaps. I'm looking okay. i'm ready okay. Go ahead. what mine in favorites. Okay and that would be henry monday henry. I know these theme. I mean he brings a lot on special teams so he goes. But there's i mean there are so line see another guy that played a lot of snaps. If someone like marcus allen yes you know so that was. That one's tough. I mean james played a lot of of special teams snaps last year. But he playing more corner whether in some package or not. He might not have many snaps. I don't know Here's someone that i thought about. But i didn't say it because he didn't have very many special teams snaps last year but he might end up with more this year. Do you think. Because of the return of one devon bush in the emergence of one roberts splaine that one vince williams vinicio. I think it's it's williams. Then ev- ichi key might be playing more special team snaps. Because i think if that's the plan he could be your special teams captain. I just don't know that that's going to be. I don't know if that's going to be the plan or not. And that's i thought about him. And i was going to have him high because i'm like he would be a great special teams captain if they're going to relegate him to playing special teams and. I don't know that they're going to do that. So yeah and then. There's right here like chris and live chat and i would be okay with this. He says i want jordan dangerfield back just as give. I'm confession. i finally deleted it a few weeks ago. I wrote two articles before the start of the league year in march two have already written so we had to do is throw it a little bit of data slap in a tweet hit publish will be get up there. Quick of players that the steelers were were going to sign for the twenty twenty one season. One of those articles published zach. Banner the other one. I had to delete because it was jordan. Dangerfield thought for sure he was one of those guys that they were going to bring back. Veteran minimum. Wouldn't even really be counting. You know where they get the the the break towards the salary cap of this psalm. One year deal where even though he's making nine hundred ninety thousand dollars. He's only counting eight hundred fifty. That's that veteran salary. Benefit is what that's called but then they signed miles killer bruin that kind of right there just told we talked about it on staff even with with. Bts's were like. I think the killebrew kind of nixed. The whole jordan dangerfield return so interesting so that's just one of those things. A lot of people were giving some some comments is the first ever lived. That the live chat that much but he breached. You want to take a few minutes questions or do you want see some oil. Well mention inter wilbur. Put up their ass about antoine brooks. You know yeah. And how much he he. He only played two percent of the special teams snaps last year. He didn't play very many games remember. he didn't even team. He was on the practice squad. Crackhead he did make some appearances. We'll see what he has to do this year right now. is there. yeah. I would expect those numbers for him to pick up. I don't know if they're going to pick up to forty plus percent or not. We'll see we'll see we're going to think about five minutes of questions here. I just put it out there in the in the live chat. If someone has a question would if you wanna make sure you can use the super chat feature just drop whatever amount in there and put your question. Don't feel like you need to do it. we're not here.

"I think it'll be reliable. But i would try to do it. Cheaper i try to buy twenty five and sell it for fifty to keep it for two years or three. Ask if it's diesel and you you maintain it maybe you can put two hundred thousand fifty thousand miles on it in two years and and then see what it's worth and see how much you lose but the bottom line is how we run this formula where you lose the least money and still get the job done and don't get into the rationalization of this Because this is a business expenses all it is and the problem. Is you spend so stinking much time in it. That every little thing that goes wrong with it every little tiny thing is going to be magnified in your emotions and and it's going to cause you to lose your judgement but just pretend like you are running a fleet. You are a fleet manager. How can i run this business for the least possible expense thereby increasing my profit the most and so the most. You oughta spinach thirty. I can tell you that. And i try to get the job done for less than that. Dave helped me with this. So i can imagine being a fifty year old man and i'm just making up an umbrella hold. This guy is Looking for work.

"Well it wouldn't be a show and it wouldn't be the six o'clock hour if we didn't mention aaron rodgers by name but there is something really interesting going on aaron rodgers. That is kinda funny. Let's bring in. Mike tannenbaum are espn front office. Inst- insider who joins us on the goodyear hotline brought to you by goodyear. Helping you discover the road ahead. Goodyear more driven. Mike good morning so in the world it in the world of nfl media in the way we like to cover things and react to things if you're in a front office and you hear that aaron rodgers has renewed his membership to green bay country club for the rest of the year. Are you thinking. Oh okay he's coming back or you just laughing at the fact that we're looking for anything to react. Maybe a little bit of each but you know. I think something did happen last week. That could be an opportunity which is if the packers ultimately agreed to waive the fines about ninety three thousand dollars it is a way to hopefully rejuvenate talks on the packers. And when you're in the situation i've been there. You're looking for any sort of creative way to sort of reinvigorate things. So i would call up and say hey look ninety three thousand dollars. That's a lot of money and most people we know that's not a lot to our but symbolically we would like to sit back down and see if we get things figured out. Ninety thousand dollars is not going to figure it out if mayor roj. That's not that's not now. Never mind you keep your little ninety three thousand not talking. He's not picking up the phone. Ninety three thousand can't kid. I've had soler conversations over three thousand dollars so i am not surprised by his response. It look if aaron rodgers. Okay so right now you got jordan love you have blake bortles and i don't even know who the three and four guide that they would have in camp would be. Is there somebody else. That's out there. If aaron rodgers decide decide to stick to his guns and and you know. Stay in california hawaii wherever he's vacationing. Is there another guy at the quarterback position that they may look to you. Bring up a great point. Which is this. If on the packers doing everything i can to get him to come back including hopefully seeing that country club membership being renewed however i have to scour the packers the verb. I'm using. I'm scouring for any quarterback that can include nick foles on the monitor that russell wilson situation. I don't think that's going to happen. Is jimmy garoppolo. Is gardner mint you. Whatever could be out there. I'm going to look at all possibilities as joe flacco. Because i have a really good football team. And if jordan love just isn't ready which is no fault of jordan love. He basically you get a chance to practice last year because of covid we know bortles isn't good enough so i'm going to scour any alternatives. I can get to give ourselves a chance to win this year. They just need somebody to manage a game at this point. Right if you defenses good enough if you have enough weapons there offensively and that division. You don't know what you're gonna get. Division speaking of divisions mike. The nfc east had an interesting year last year. As we know the way things ended there. But with dak prescott coming back to the cowboys. What are you expecting from offense and do you think it's enough to overcome what's going to be a fairly young still defense. That has a lot to prove in that division. Should they be the favorite synopsis. Win the division but be that team that that could make.

"Contract was dissolved because he got injured. Not even during mini camp. Not even during training camp. He was injured and they let him go. So why would you risk your body for mandatory minicamp which the season doesn't start for another three months. Why would you risk everything on the line for mandatory minicamp. I commend those people who are standing up for what they believe in and holding out for mandatory minicamp plus the fine his like pocket change for them. It's like pocket change for these guys. It's like ninety thousand dollar fine for aaron rodgers. That's nothing that's nothing to these guys like. Aaron rodgers and stefan gilmore. Who are going to hold out for these mini camps. And it's interesting to see that how this all plays out because this is going to be the first time anybody who's a superstar talent is going to hold out for many camp. We're going to be talking later on down the road. How people who are injured during mini camps are going to be affected during the regular season. I rather have you be injured during the regular season instead of being injured during mini camp. That just me. I don't like how they try to make minicamp mandatory and make you have fine for not showing up. Why would these players show up if they have a chance of getting injured on a camp at practice. That doesn't even really get them ready to play the game. They're not even wearing pads out there. So just doesn't make sense to me especially if you're a big time name like i don't know patch mahomes or odell beckham junior or george kittle. You're a superstar and you're going to many camp. You have a major risk of injuring yourself. And it doesn't make sense to me. Because not only are there risking losing their jobs. But they're also lists risking losing their lifestyle losing baron -dorsements and losing all of money from endorsements by injuring themselves and not being able to show what they have and their talent on the field and that endorsement money and all those commercials they do is go away when they're not on the field. So why don't you injure yourself in a practice. That's not even patted. It just doesn't make sense to me now. I mentioned something about endorsements. And i don't know if you'll solve this but gridiron police report. Gridiron had a really interesting graphic when it comes to the -dorsements in the nfl and the teams that who's the top teams when it comes to endorsements now when i'm talking about endorsement don't talk about players who actually wear these types of brands like nike adidas under armor like jordan. Because there's a really the people that they had on their lists for endorsements and brands. There's some really tightened teams like superstar talents wearing all other sorts of endorsements. Now we all know how that is a huge brand when it comes to having players wear their shoes whether whether jerseys so t nike they divided it out of fourteens nike adidas under armor and short jordan bring michael jordan but the teams they had and the people. They had wearing nike their superstar talent. So i'm i'm just gonna give you the list of teams that they have who are wearing these brands and i don't. I'm gonna leave it up to you to tell you the names. Nagy has odell beckham junior russell wilson. Aaron darnold cuyler. Murray saquon barkley terry mclaughlin khalil. Mack in mari cooper team nike. That's those have some deep lineups. Those are star studded. Lineups loser superstars. Not only on the offense of side but the defensive side of the ball to now. If you think team nike's good just wayne t here team. Adidas patrick mahomes aaron rodgers jalen ramsey. Alvin kamara adam. Felim travis kelsey trevor lawrence and a guy like name deondraye hopkins one of the best one receivers in the game. If not the best. That squad to nike adidas. They have a bunch of playmakers on their squads. Now i'm not sure if you know jordan brand as well but there's a lot of great players on the jordan brand squad to jordan has dak prescott to find eight atoms. Michael thomas stefan digs stefan gilmore likely previous mentioned tyron matthew devon white and a guy who i think is so underrated right now. We're going to light up the league. And kyle pits everybody's talking about the julio jones move but not everyone is talking about how atlanta still has to great wide receivers in kyle pits. Or he's a tight end but he's going to be wide receiver flex spot and calvin ridley who is maintained and who is going to have a huge year this year if he stays healthy. So that's the jordan brand squad now under armor they also have a squad to don't sleep on the under armor squad. Now you've got cam. Newton leonard for net. Tk metcalf justin jefferson who might be a good addition for a fancy. Football team has a number two one. Receiver chase young. Patrick peterson and the goat. Tom brady the greatest time. Those are just some of the names that are wrapping these brands on the field. And those are just some of the endorsements that these players are wrapping on the field. Now there's some of these teams. I would go with the under armor team. I'm always going to go tom brady. Tk metcalf justin jefferson leonard. Fournette almost gonna go with nike team. That's huge too. He got the best defensive player in the league. Aaron donald you got one of the best. Quarterbacks do it for quarterbacks if he stays healthy and russell wilson and you have one of the better running backs who i think might be the best running back in the league with saquon barkley. But don't also sleep on the adidas team with patrick mahomes. Alvin kamara and deondraye hopkins. If i had to rank them. I'd probably rank the team. The under armor team the nike team and the jordan team one through four. Because there are. I mean i look at looking guys on adidas. Patrick mahomes aaron rodgers. Chelan ramsey deandre hopkins. Alvin kamara. Adam feeling who might might be very underrated the year when it comes to the wide receiver spot agency football yet. The best tight end receiving tight. End up there with darren. Waller and george kittle. And you have one of the better upcoming quarterbacks in trevor lawrence that just crazy to me to see that all these players from different organizations who are superstar players have endorsements from adidas from nike from jordan from under armor. And it's just it's interesting. It's a good bar. Still debate in honestly is like oh which endorsement in which brand has the best team. And that's what i love to talk about. I love to talk about all of this barstool debate because that's one thing that really is. It's exciting as a sports fan to come together and to say oh some people might think..

"ninety thousand dollars" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"Operation that led to more than eight hundred arrests in eighteen countries. We'll to find out how it works on joined by mark galliotti senior associate fellow at the royal united services institute an expert on transnational crime and for an australian take on that elements of the operation. Karen middleton the saturday papers chief political correspondent in canberra is here to give us the lowdown mark if we could begin with you the fbi and other international forces have been working on this for some time. What was the idea behind the sting. Well we've known for some time. Criminals have been taking to various anonymous messaging services to coordinate their operations trying to find ways in which they can talk without law enforcement being over to overhear them and therefore when the fbi had an opportunity for an extraordinary chief. Product was one hundred ninety thousand dollars to basically by this company that was setting up something which is exactly an anonymous messaging service and they had someone who was already involved in organized crime who was basically willing to work with them in return for a reduced sentence. So they just had this. Extraordinarily bright ideas will wide. We set ourselves sell in in effect. This anonymous criminals messaging service and let it run for long enough that we can actually basically be able to watch their communications in real time until we're ready to do these kind of mass arrests which we've seen across the world karen. Can you tell us about the australian and of the operation. You sterling ended the operation as we understand it from the descriptions of it for the last twenty four hours. What they did when they sit that took over. That company was that they built a k effectively into Into the software so that every message that was passed through this encrypted where was decrypted and copied so in real time as you just heard the message is passed and it was australian expertise in an april Bet to occur in australian law enforcement agencies particularly strident federal police were involved in monitoring activities at this end. They've announced that they've arrested charge. Twenty four two hundred and twenty four offenders they say have shutdown seeks clandestine drug laboratories seized seventy two firearms hundreds of kilograms of drugs. Forty five million dollars and swatted. They say twenty-one threats to kill so it was a pretty massive operation and that's just in one country and of course across the tasman he. The new zealanders have arrested another fifty five people and not bought other were involved. Essentially what we have case which nineteen different countries really. It was so seriously involved in operations and guess t to move on. I mean in terms of everything from outlaw motorcycle gang wars in sweden to drug lamps in the netherlands. We've seen this this wrapped up but you're right to raise the issue the geographic spread. Because what's quite interesting is. There are some organized crime grouping similar to talking about the chinese and the russian who all really represented nothing because they had their own particular ways of communication and their own in some cases anonymous messaging. So i mean the risk is that we actually ended up doing is creating little vacuums in which other gangs. We'll basically move in. But why stop. Now i mean if this was so successful and and the fbi on the australian forces and so on could drop in on these compensation solely it's useful to keep it going for awhile. What was the tipping point that said right now. We're going to move in for the arrests. Well this is interesting thing and although we have been certain statements on this nothing yet to me that has been entirely convincing. It suggests to me that either. They felt that there was the risk is operation was was actually going to be blown one way or the other or there was a particular crime which they definitely felt they could not just turn a blind eye to because this is the thing to an extent you can disrupt operations and this is the new buzzwords disruption In ways that don't make utopias is going to be some kind of gang rumble where people are going to die. And they can just happen to be some police. 'cause pulsing at the time. The no one immediately thinks hang on. This must mean that our system has been compromised but sometimes their operations. When the only way you can actually stop going down is by rating them and it could. Well have been one of those situations where they felt. Okay we've had our fun but now we actually have to show our a current. I wonder how this will impact on overnight crime in australia is it indeed. A watershed moment as scott morrison described. It that's certainly the way the prime minister's describing it he's saying that it will put put a big dent in organized crime operations He's been pointing to outlaw biker. Gangs agent crime syndicates. Australian mafia a whole lot of organizations or working in smuggling drugs and firearms and of a criminal activity. So he's hoping that that's the case he's also using it. Interesting to make a political point is a rough more national security legislation before our strike in parliament and also being considered the watchdog committee here examines these things before they get voted on in parliament and the labor. Opposition is a little bit hesitant about some of that legislation. There are concerns that it's too draconian and too intrusive so the prime minister is making a political point with these drug bust effectively and saying look woolcock we can. Do you really going to stand in the way of that. And previous point that he's a mock is correct to say that there was hesitation as i understand it about being blocked the operation being blown. I think there was some nervousness that it was getting dangerous and getting close to the possibility that it would be blind. And as i understand it. The fbi had specific authorization for a period of time for these and that was coming to an end as well as i understand it. So the combination of those two teams will what made the move on it now rather than just stay listening forever and just to pick up on something you said earlier. Are we likely. Then to see a worldwide lessening of this type of criminality following the operation or will the criminals. Just find another way. Oh i wish. I could be short term and i don't want in any way to underplay which has been a stupendous trump against organized crime. But we have to realize that the reason why there is organized crime is depressing enough because there is a demand for their services. There are people who want the drugs. There are people who want the traffic victims and such like and yes unfortunately in the medium to long term those market says underground markets will reassert themselves and others will will come in and they will use new technologies new new ways of working to get round. This most recent Success and they will satisfy that market so long as we concentrate purely on the supply side which is important but unfortunately it's the demand side that keeps a supply side constantly regenerating itself mark. Thank you. that's not galliotti. And karen middleton thanks to both now still to come on the program the genocide conviction as the former bosnia serb military leader. Ratko mladic the butcher of bosnia has been held. We'll hear from a survivor. I was very emotional watching this judgment. Finally after twenty. Five years. I can go back to seventy because.

"I think some folks listening goes well. What i'm working on is just not that important. Nobody's going to target me. That's not true everybody's get some dollars to share So so up look ransomware could could Everybody end if someone. Maybe i shouldn't do inside but eventually if someone like for someone five hundred dollars for survival. It's enough yet. Been if you target hundred thousand people regular people that work at home or whatever then basically it will be enough ford person He doesn't have to be ninety thousand dollars. It could be five hundred and That might be you. It's very possible that the other part of realized with the backups is sometimes ransomware guys are smart enough that they encrypt the backups. To like you've gotta make sure you've got an air gap between your backups. And your primary says yeah so backup management system absolutely important. That's actually not the trio case. They are first party solutions. That are actually allowing you to store backups. In the way that is like almost storing the certificates the root Organization so that you have to exited only by two out of five feet goal in that kind of stuff so Longer protest but eventually backup by one manage all can be can be managed breeding. I in way while they still get into doing the math it says. How long does it take to recover from backup. And how much did are we gonna lose. Tha say suddenly. The ransom is reasonable. If it's avoids having to do all of that work yes yes interesting. Balancing act between those things to what makes sense economically. How grandma franklin ever going to protect herself from ransomware grandma franklin needs to rip it only websites stat That she trusts boy. There's the problem right there. You can implement some controls that i think's like occur and so on so that she can run the stuff that she doesn't know even blind not knowing that she's doing this similar actually to the enterprise at the end and microsoft keeps threatening to make secure version of windows like the windows accent so forth that the defaults to the white model not allowing foreign software to run automatically. They never seem to ship it. I think it's just people everything always to the customer doesn't want it. It's an it's an interesting ruth and at the same time they go and say. Hey i'll get pixelbook right or chrome mission. I don't have those problems because it doesn't run anything right and same for ipad back in the day. I don't think it's true for ipad anymore that there's now there are attackers going after ipads in as an attack factor to right because it's popular right but as long as the popular infrastructure. You're gonna run into the the popular. You're going to be a tax write obscenity. So today doesn't matter. Of course there are some more steps indicating that sets windows of course because it's more used within to enterprises and so on butts up suitably any operating system here nowadays is a target. Does any of windows historical api is that they keep around for backward compatibility pose a threat or pose an attack vector now that People may not be aware of. I wonder out be to so much. I mean the netflix thing. Net bios things certainly. Smb one fresh. You know because there's a reason be wanted still on the two day you can still go to a a best. Buy and buy a piece of network year that depends on snb b. one. And if you have to be one turned off which is a brutally. Ill protocol incredibly vulnerable. Literally insecure -able but that device won't work unless it's on and it's on by default and you default unless you run the lockdown script which will turn it off ably a defending part about that is that you've got also auditions that are currently allowed in the infrastructure. That are with that problem so it doesn't have to be from the past. You've got to end in aversion to which is an attentive protocol. That's in line with carbon. Has a big deal because it civil to their relax kerber us as well you can do corp rose think attack where you request for the ticket and then you tried to crack it so it it. It's completely not dependent on time. You can crockett for the next couple of weeks and then you come back. You perform the attack. So i like that. It's quote end. You've got a tabular data stream. Communication protocol insecure server. That thrones declared text and nobody freely attorneys on encryption on the database servers. So think of things like this nowadays. Don't even have to look into the past saw you just connect to infrastructure and uc to brooklyn mmediately. This lockdown powershell script. Check to see if there are any applications that are using these services and tell you hey you you have some dependencies on the services you sure you want to disable them outside Configuration slash vulnerability management assessment systems. Something i bet but the thing is that these myths configurations that we mentioning here. This is not really considered vulnerability. It's more of like thing that's running out there like like we really said it is a problem but again it's a it's a miss conflagration rather than Eventually and we'll system tell you like hey you're using that bias may want to use not bias so like the same for version two you will you have to use it. Actually when you're out alternating using local accounts across the editor like machine. So there's no other choice you have to use it so therefore cannot be considered vulnerability so sometimes it's hard to spell these conflagrations. 'cause they're very dependent on things so it's like when you connect the dots this is when it becomes a problem by the when it's like working as a single thing it doesn't so until version two could be help with a little bit with that. Smb being signed smb will Signed were not able to relay attack that easily and one. Yeah yeah yeah i mean. Is this pushes to fix. All these things are dead pile has been maintaining the smb one clearinghouse or forever whereas essentially shaming vendors saying. These guys still depend on smb one and bit by bit. Some of them are actually starting to retire it. But you know the vendor also pushed back so my customer doesn't care i it's like you're gonna care if they get exploited and then it's too late and it's literally a recompiled kids like just run b. Three library eight rocket science. Wow so much to think about what paula. It's been great to have you on the show. Thanks his lot. Think about.

J who we first met in like barcelona. Oh it was a speaker idle. Yes exactly. yeah but that was a quiz. That was richard washed doing. Yeah we remove the tour speaker. Lytle we did that. Remember used to do the game show quiz. We're we're giving away swag. Yeah and she was a contestant on the game show. And i asked her a question about dos from before he was born was created or something. Like that for three eighty. But you also did. You also did speaker speak right. I remember that. Is that how you broke into tech ed yet pretty much. That was in los angeles right. That was the first time. Remember that recharge that was vic. The famous thing about politics is she never want speaker auto. Yeah came in second more. She came in second in europe. I barcelona and speaking and then although ultimate she did and then competed in us which was completely the only rules. You hadn't spoken a tech. Ed you hadn't and came in second again and that was that one we did in. La where we were in. They didn't do the that was like two thousand eight where they didn't do the attendee party so we were part of the attendee party and rescinded which was one of the one of the judges. The judges yeah. I got back up a little bit and just tell people with speaker. I live because i think they do it anymore tech ed. They used to hire richard in me to do to run the show. Like pop idol in the uk or american idol in the us. You get five minutes to do a presentation and you have judges and so they've they're judging you on obviously your your approach your mannerisms how how much they're paying attention. Your presentation style your content. You know how many ums per second use hey that kind of stuff and they were recording it so that the people who were picking speakers for tech ed would review this stuff and say. Hey that person's pretty good or we ought to get that person as a speaker and even if you didn't win as testament with pala The they saw her and said we have to. We have to have. I remember very clearly at the end of that speak in l. a. the head of check in europe. Who knew me knew us. You know came to me and said who is that young woman. She needs to be speaking of the show right. I know but was fun. I was so much fish bring. That was a long time ago. Your congress kids. It's it's an issue thing. Well you know we sort of the rules like listen. I got pretty good tasted speakers right. I got it all the content selection and and fairly consistently. If you may speak arado you were going to get a slot. Tackett sooner or later. So the winner guaranteed one but some other people other people who came through speaker idle jeff. Fritz david gerard Who else am i thinking. Missing here pete colleague. Was there a peach peach from australia. Which calvert yuppie calvert bark desmet well as the thing is that top four. It's be grotto. They're all astonishingly good speakers and a five minute talk is one of the hardest things you can do like an hour is easy in comparison to you know. It's very tough to put together a crisp five minutes. The communicates effectively. It's really quite tough to smet was in barcelona and he was a wild card in other words he just came up while we were doing it and said i can do presentation and it was all code and it was console reviving its app. He just type for five minutes and he nailed it and he ended up winning. Yeah well it's also that's sort of a flying close to the sun kind of thing like it works. you'll be fine and if it does you know you are going to crash and burn you know the other one i was thinking of was rhonda layfield. Oh yeah around queen of deployment and she also she one tech it in the us. Yeah and then applied to tech europe. saying hey i've just won t i'm gonna speaking tech and got declined. Yeah and so then reached out to me and said. Hey i'm going i couldn't pay your way to tackett right like i. I didn't have any. We didn't have any budget for that. You had to go to check it anyway. And this is one of the things. I found in common with all of the successful cadets on on speaker auto was they were so dedicated to the craft that even when they didn't get a speaking slot and essentially a ride detect they would fall in tier and pay their own way and be there anyway and like pala. Rhonda did the same thing and then came on speaker idle and I was killing at kasese. Amazed and the organizers in europe came at me and said listen. She's a ringer like you shouldn't have in speaker idle. This is wrong. And i'm like she's never. She followed falls the qualifications. Anyway it gets escalated. I'm sitting in the room with the head of tech ed europe and these folks and the and the you know the track chairs complaining like this person they shouldn't be in the contest and the and the over honest as well if she's that good why is to be exactly and then she wants speaker idol of europe as well all right. Let's maybe we should get back to work. Yeah well we've we've done a half a dozen shows on on run as about this as well. The last one is called. How black hats profit from From this whole thing and it clearly. This seems to be true right back. People are paying these ransoms even if they bought. It's this is a profitable enterprise. How what are we going to do to stop that part. Oh you know it's it's really hard because it starts with the atak eventually and run. These are on the increase on dan. Basically people in general will pay so what would be important. I think to stop it if we look at it from the bigger picture perspective would gate people more anti over security so they don't become victims of that so that they don't have to pay in order to recover day or day and On average by the way within stutz hawker florida successful run somewhere campaign earns like ninety thousand dollars nine zero thousand dollars monthly. So it's a pretty good salary to have for months for many people. That's quite to if you're listening.

Caffeinated drinks sugary like super aggressive label labels on them. and it's like this sort of like very like macho. Frankly bro beverage and the stock has done phenomenally well but depending on exactly what Settings you use. it's it might be the single best performing stock in history or certainly over the last twenty or so years.

Although i am very aware of the branding and advertising strategy has been a big part of their success. And i'm sure we're going to get into that on the podcast. But i have to say in the course of doing some research for this episode. I found the most amazing anecdote on read it. Of course it came from read. It changes that perfect. What what what the anecdote. So i think it was on the financial independence retirement early board but it was some guy who said he invested ninety thousand dollars in monster energy drinks I think this was in two thousand ten. He posted and he said he'd invested five years ago so basically he had a five hundred percent increase on that ninety thousand dollar position which made him a millionaire in the space of five years and the best part of it was he wrote that in two thousand ten everyone on the message board basically said you are absolutely crazy. I can't believe you have this huge chunk. Appoint foley of your portfolio in a single stock. You need to sell it right now. And of course had he held onto it at.

Why Nursing Homes' COVID-19 Legal Shields May Interfere With Other Cases

NPR's Business Story of the Day

Why Nursing Homes' COVID-19 Legal Shields May Interfere With Other Cases

"You listen to podcasts. In twenty seven states nursing homes have gotten special legal protections during the covid nineteen pandemic that means in most cases families can't sue if someone they love got sick or died at one the nursing home say they're doing the best they can and they need those legal shields but that also may stop people whose injuries have nothing to do with covid from seeking justice in the courts. Noel talked with. Npr's jaffe been looking into this. Why were these laws passed in the first place. You remember that. The corona virus outbreak started as far as most people were aware in a nursing home and currently long term care facilities account for more than a third of all deaths from covid nineteen nursing homes were caught scrambling for personal protective equipment. They were shifting recommendations of how contagious disease was and the industry made a case that they shouldn't be held responsible for dealing with this moving target. Are there any lawsuits pending against nursing homes relating to covid or did these immunity laws. Basically finish them off. While there is one in durham north carolina. It's questioned whether it's related to covid. Possibly it's the first of its kind involves the death of a woman named palestine house. Her daughter lisa set her. Mother's death had nothing to do with corona virus. Her mother had a pressure ulcer or bedsores there commonly known she'd had it since december of twenty eighteen and it just got worse. It became infected. Lisa how said she begged traber and rehabilitation center. Send her mother to the emergency room but they assured us that they could handle it. Lisa house and her three sisters had their doubts and their experience traber and rehabilitation center. Didn't seem to be able to handle much on a scale of one to five stars. The federal government gives traber and just one it also gets below average ratings on the ratio of nurses to residence. The government has find traber. Almost one hundred ninety thousand dollars in the past three years. We were there a lot and we found ourselves having to bathe her just general things they were supposed to do. We'd come in several times when she hadn't been fed her just sitting there. The house sisters hadn't had a lot of luck with nursing homes. In general trae burn was the third one they tried. It was close to where they live so the sisters could visit often but it hardly mattered. One families were locked out of nursing homes in march. Everything got harder and took longer. Palestine house needed specialists in wound care and iv antibiotics. Lisa house had her mother's power of attorney again. She begged trae burn rehabilitation to send her mother to the emergency room where they could find the specialists. She needed again. She was turned down their excuses. Were well the hospitals not taking new patients because of covert and she would be safer she stayed here and the facility is equipped to take care of your mother and none of those things turned out to be true. Palestine house died a train rehabilitation center on april fourteenth. Twenty twenty one month later. North carolina passed a sweeping liability shield for long term care facilities. The nursing homes with rare exceptions were immune from lawsuits. The measure was made retroactive to march tenth. Lisa house and her sisters decided to suit rayburn. Anyway elizabeth todd is their attorney. Palestine house did not have to die in that way or at that time and for the legislature to say that the nursing homes need protection in the middle of a pandemic not the nursing. Home patients is outrageous and it's unjust north carolina's immunity law lasts until the pandemic is over. Todd is especially worried that the law gives the free past nursing homes with low staffing trayvon and so literally the nursing homes can take their own understaffing their chronic understaffing and use it as a shield to prevent any liability at all during the covid pandemic through their attorneys train. Rehabilitation center declined comment but for many in the long term care industry. These immunity measures are welcome. Relief says dave voelpel. Ceo of the zona healthcare association. Arizona governor doug ducey was among the first to sign an executive order granting nursing homes and assisted living facilities legal immunity and for that we apart him. Because that just takes a little bit of pressure off. Though paul says it allows facilities to focus on what's most important we need to worry about. Keeping covert out of the building that sometimes that cuts into the bottom line says bubble take for instance one hundred bed building and they really have fifty rooms two beds per room that to keep infection from spreading those double rooms may have to be converted to private rooms. So revenue is cut in half. It really takes its toll on the business side of the ledger. Long term care facilities face a crisis if existential proportions says mark reagan the attorney for the california association of health facilities that's because liability insurance are excluding things covert when they renew policies which would mean that any claims made regarding covert infection would be subject to exclusion and no insurance coverage congressional. Republicans wanted a national immunity law but dropped as part of the deal for the latest coronavirus. Relief package reagan. Still has hopes what we're merely asking for is stats caregivers. And their employers. Don't get punished for doing the best that they could. Under the circumstances. I imagine that the family of palestine house doesn't in fact the nursing home was doing the best it could for their mother. Well right there attorney. Elizabeth todd points out that one of north carolina's immunity criteria is that facility must be acting in good faith and she doesn't see how can argue that they did that. So where does

"ninety thousand dollars" Discussed on Tiny House Lifestyle Podcast

"It's it seems to me that you know people. Nothing against people who are in the trades But you know you look at a tiny house and you kind of think that much easier to build. But in my opinion it's actually a lot harder because you've got very complicated and of interface between the house and the trailer and then you've got all these systems that you still have to fit in and have worked correctly in a much smaller space. No i i think that issue comes from early in the movement because i think this movement really started as diy move bent. It was a way to build hung on your own for cheap and in some ways the movement is really coming to terms with that like is it still a diy movement. I it might not be anymore. And the fact that people are thinking that they can still do it on their own. They think it's easy you know and in reality it's not and there are builders who say. I'm a construction worker. I build homes all the time traditional homes. Yes sure some of those skills will carry over but it doesn't necessarily mean you know how to build a tiny home for the same reasons you just mentioned so i think the tiny house movement has to come to terms with the fact that it might not i not longer be may no longer be a diy movement and it's not an easy thing to do is on your own or that builders any builder that has any construction. Experience can just build a tiny house. Because it's anyone can do it. 'cause it's as easy as yeah. That's that's great advice. I'm curious about you. Mentioned the agreement. I know that nondisclosure agreements of also there's something that are on way more people's radar after learning about the me too movement and just the way that nondisclosures were used to cover up abuses there. Have you heard of tiny house builders and enforcing nondisclosure agreements. As of right now. I have not heard of that. Have you heard of that. Have you heard them. I'm not sure. I i have a group of of an online community that iran and i i do have one member who has had some issues with their builder and it'll be interesting to hear if there have been any non. Yeah no that'd be fascinating. I would love to look into that more I haven't heard. I haven't heard of as being signed. I would say that if you're working with the builder that makes you sign an nda upfront. I would say definitely be wary of that You know push further like wise. It's needed like what's going to happen in the process that i need to say yeah quiet about but yeah i would say. Just be wary of fat. That situation does arise yeah. I'm curious if a good friend of yours that. Hey frank i'm gonna. I'm gonna buy a tiny house. I'm gonna hire a builder to build a tiny house. What advice would you have. The most important pieces of advice i would have is definitely do. Your research and i cannot emphasize this enough. Do your research do your research and do your research more You know like. I said earlier. There are hundreds of tiny house. Builders on the market right now you just do a quick. Google search so many will come up. some are more experienced summer newer I think what you need to do is find a builder that you like really do your research on that builder itself. If you're just looking through their website in reading their testimony there no that that's cure heavily curated. They're only using their positive reviews there So do your research beyond that. You know there are a ton of tiny house. Facebook groups drop that builders name into the into one of those facebook groups and be like. Hey guys anyone uses builder before and if so what was that process like when you do that you may get a time for people like super positive. That was super great. We had a great experience. You may get people who like. I've never heard i built or no one's ever used builder. I'd be hesitant to go ahead with that builder just because you want to trust builder and you don't want to just choose. A builder is their new. And cheap. 'cause you're gonna get what you got you're gonna get what you paid for. Also keep in mind that if it's too good to be true it probably is too good to be true lake. Lindsey said to me that you know they agreed on a rooftop deck a rock climbing wall and high end amenities were ninety thousand dollars. She's like in hindsight that price tag. Did it what we were asking for. so think about that. Just remember that if you get a price tag. That doesn't really make sense. But you're excited about it because it is cheaper than what you expect it. You should really stop and question. Also if you do all those things and you find out that this builders really great and has really great people. I would also recommend going back to their website and finding past customer and even if it's a glowing review i recommend reaching out dot com password. Find them on social media and ask them more in what their experience was like because they may have left something out in their review. They may have been like. Oh it was great but this one thing happened or this relationship with. The builder may have been odd because of x. y. and z. And remember that building a relationship with your builder is important you know. I've spoken to tiny house owners. were like. this was a really great experience. However my builder kind of left me out of the process. You know day chose the color of the year of my home without even really talking to me about it. So when you choose a builder that you like and have great reviews. Sit down with them and make sure. The expectations are in line with each other. So make sure that you're going to be involved as much or as little as you want because remember this is the relationship So once so. I just repeat that you know. Just make sure you do your research and make sure you're building a relationship that you end. The builder are full. Yeah that's that is great advice especially like find a past customer. Get in touch with them directly exactly. I think that's my best piece of advice because you know they people have been through this before. Well actually one of my favorite things. Other tiny house movement is that everybody is in it to help other people. I feel like it's such a tight knit community because there hasn't everybody. There is such a small amount of people who have been through the process. And if you fall back on people who have gone through this process before as with the builder that you're gonna go where the rewards from that is endless limitless. I highly recommend it. Yeah curious what advice you have so you. You've given us great advice in terms of you know if you're starting from scratch finding a builder what about somebody. Who's currently working with a builder. And they're feeling like not going so well or you know they've had there've been some red flags there have been some burns. There might not really be universal advice. But but what would you say to somebody at..

Kelly Loeffler's Atlanta mansion 'Descante' mysteriously dropped in value by millions of dollars, giving her a tax cut of roughly $88,000

"Republican senator kelly law flers multimillion dollar home rapidly depreciated in value resulting in a much lower property tax bill. Now no one can explain why especially at a time when all of her neighbors property values went up She and her husband had pumped money into remodeling this extravagant mansion. And usually when you do that the property value goes up. But i'll give you the details and you decide for yourselves. If something shady is going on leffler in her husband. Jeffrey sprecher bought a fifteen thousand square foot atlanta mansion known as discount for ten point five million dollars in two thousand nine the value of the estate as praise by fulton county government officials for the purpose of calculating annual property tax stews. Remain the same for the next seven years but then something weird happen in two thousand sixteen. The praise value suddenly plunged to four point. One five million sixty percent decline. So how does that translate to lower property tax while property taxes of course are calculated based on the value of the home and if the value of the home goes up your property tax bill goes up and if it goes down of course your property tax bill goes down now. Originally they were paying two hundred thousand dollars annually to the city and county governments in property taxes. That in two thousand sixteen after their home's value dropped. They paid ninety thousand dollars since then. The appraised value of their home has risen to roughly five million. But they're still paying about eighty thousand dollars less a year than they did when they first bought their home

Debt Is Never the Answer with Dave Ramsey

"My twenties, I believed what a lot of people believe. The borrow money to make money. I got a degree in finance and the power of leverage and the simplistic formula that if you borrow at one interest rate by percent, four percent, and you reinvested, and you make ten or twelve percent that you're making the spread. That is simplistic, primitive wrong, but I believe that lots of people quote that to me on twitter. to show how ignorant I am that I just don't understand the power of leverage, but I do understand the power of leverage and. Four million dollars worth of real estate until I was twenty four and twenty five years old, and I bought it right so I had a net worth of a million dollars, which means only owed three million on the four million and make a couple of hundred thousand dollars a year flip in properties and doing things, but leverage is a two edged sword, and people never talk about the other edge of it. They always. It only works when it works. Marring money only works when it works. And so, what happened to us was we went broke because the bank called her notes, and we didn't have any liquid. We didn't mean money. We weren't laid on the notes. They just panicked. hysteria tax climate that we were in the presidential climate that we were in and called. You know, look around. Song is ninety short-term notes for flips, and they call them, so we spent two and a half years losing everything we own well in that process I had a an existential crisis. And everything that I believed evidently was wrong. Yeah, and so I went through this whole thing of my intellect, being crushed and questioning and as a Christian I was met God on the way up I got to know him on the way down, and so I started studying biblical finance, and I found the borrowers slave to the lender, and I found one hundred percent of the references in the Bible to dead or negative. And so as a believer that puts a challenge against your finance degree. Yeah, no kidding and you go okay. Somebody's wrong and somebody's right because they're two polar opposites, and you can't just say well, you know sometimes. It's not sometimes in the Bible. And it's all the time in the finance classroom. That's right that you borrow, and so I had to really took me why at first I was in a position and that I just bought it based on my faith. Okay, I don't borrow money. God said. Don't borrow money on. Borrow money period. And then over time I've started understand the intellectual reasons for that the mathematical reasons for that and so I don't borrow money by basically when you borrow money, you increase risk. and. When business people say zero. Five hundred thousand dollars to buy this piece of equipment. They do not. Ascertain risk. They say I can borrows money at six percent and I can put the piece of equipment to work and I can make twelve or fourteen percent on my money, but that's only if everything goes perfectly as it did in your head, and it never goes perfectly business about ninety percent of my ideas that I think are brilliant that I bring to the market. It suck. And borrow on them. It destroys. My life doesn't work, but I think this is a pretty everyone sees you as the guy on the cover of the book cutting up the credit card and the guy that's yell at people for taking car payments, but we don't always address the topic of debt for business. What you're saying is that the same principles apply to how you run your business as how you and your personal absolutely, and if you to look at it through the faith lands, you can't find it in scripture if you WANNA look at it through an intellectual Lens. Let's actually do real math in a real business case. Okay, if you get a finance degree and you get licensed. Licensed in securities like I have been, and you've been in that world. We know in that world that we do not compare a high risk. Mutual Fund apples to apples with a low risk mutual fund. There is a measure of risk mathematically. It's the height of the valley, the height of mountain if you graph it if you see the waves graph in your mind right now, the ones that are straight up straight down have a higher Beta. A Beta is a mathematical statistical measure of risk Okay, and so we know that you can take the bait drop it under the line, meaning an inverse mathematical formula and being complicated here, but the point is, you can intellectually look at this. So when you add risk when you adjust for risk, you can compare these two mutual funds apples to apples. By putting the Beta, underline yeah, inverse relationship, so you're adding risk into your math formula so that you can accurately look at the situation. Most people ninety eight percent of the business cases that entree leaders have brought to me and supposedly sophisticated people who criticize me on blocks. They do not have any measure of risk in their formula. They're not saying what happens if this happens, what happens if there's a move in the marketplace what happens if a customer doesn't pay me, what happens if it doesn't sell like? I think it's going to sell, and it can be something as simple as that guy borrowing ninety thousand dollars to buy a dump truck. And it's GonNa work out I'm GONNA saw him on a whole lot of stuff dump truck. We can't get loads. Fuel prices go up insurance prices. Go Up. He has wreck here about any of those things, and so he says I'm GonNa make money by borrowing money, but there's no mathematical measure of risk in that formula, and when you insert risk into your leverage formula, the benefits of Leverage go away. They dissipate. So turns out. We can mathematically prove that God was right. socking. I mean that's what it comes down to so present this. A bunch of MBA's at Vanderbilt spoke to him. Ba Group over there and they were looking at me like German shepherds Oh. That's what I was GONNA say. Lou because nowhere in academia. Does anybody talk about this?

John Redman of Viper Aviation on How to Build Your Own Plane

"John You got a new aircraft company. So tell me a little bit about it. Yes, it's Viper Aviation. We custom build. Rans s twenty s twenty one experimental aircraft customers as well as painter place for people. We also have an ECOMMERCE store that delivers five fiber fiberglass air mid materials to fix your cowlings wheel pants, wing taps wingtips. Excuse me any art of your. Crap sell everything that as well. So basically, if I was some rich dude or semi rich dude, I wanted to build aircraft I can do myself, and then probably crash into the ground or I can call someone like us at right. Hopefully, not but the the experimental aircraft. The kids out there. Understand they're pretty much designed to be built by the guy who can change the brakes on his car. You can follow instructions. You can build your airplane. Were a lot of people. It becomes a daunting task in the electrical part of it and the paint because you're gonNA drop seventy or eighty or ninety thousand dollars on an airplane. You want it to look good the FBI but the lipstick on a pig as they call it very well, and the other one is people. Sit Down and ten to find very daunting situations. They're putting something together and they train reengineer it in their head. You need to understand that the manufacturer has done that trust what he did in. Just put it together as a set. All too often. People tend to go a little overboard. Yeah, so let's talk about the experimental aircraft sector general because. You know you're a crew chief in the air force on F16's in F. One seventeens How Complex are these planes? So you say like someone who can change their breaks can build their own aircraft. There's no. There's failsafe like when you're up in the air. I mean seems like a very different like you said daunting task. So what? What is the the climate of the experimental aircraft sector? It's it's. Very large continues to grow everybody who's flown in airplane? It's amazing. Most of intend to start in modeling. It's children whether it was building. Plastic models are flying radio, controlled models or control line type models, and it's interesting. How many people had the desire to once possibly build their own airplane? Experimental world is a world of about ten million. Customers out there. and. They just they wanted they to take the plunge. This I can do this I can change the brakes on my car and I really build the airplane, and of course the Mansoni kisses. Absolutely. We got the best instruction manual out there while we offer, you is a builder. Assist Program where you come and spend three weeks with US and build. You're playing with a team of MSA highly trained professionals. Learn processes in programs in the military that taught me how to maintain fighters at five hundred knots five hundred feet above the ground. In nine Jesus put bombs on target never lost a pilot end. Don't intend doing today. It's not difficult at. It is different than the standard processes somewhat.

Erics Favorite New Growth Strategy of 2020 (So Far)

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about Eric's favourite new growth strategy of twenty twenty so far so what we're in April of twenty twenty? We haven't really been through a lot in terms of business so far in the year but Y- let's talk about it. So what do you enjoying so far? What's your favorite strategy this year? I think you know the favorite strategy for me is continually testing with podcast. Right giving example. I'll use the other podcast leveling up as an example. So you know. We've talked about the power of subscription. You know. We talked about how we monetize this podcast. We have ads. We have our event. And then there's other elements that we're testing in the future as well such as potential educational component to it but also a subscription component that. I'm testing myself to see if the number actually workout so I am seeing promising results so far we have about six customers. Which is it doesn't seem like much. Break down the numbers for you. So on the leveling up podcast. Let's say I have eighty thousand eighty to ninety thousand dollars a month and we'll say about ten percent of those downloads are my true audience right. We're trying to be conservative here. So ten percent of eighty thousand eight hundred correct so on eight hundred what I'm trying to convert people into a subscription is. I'm trying to prove that one to two percent of my audience will convert into becoming a paying subscriber if those numbers proved to be right because those are the numbers that were shared to me from a company called Super cast they say most of their podcasters subscriptions about one to seven percent of their audience. They're true audience will convert into paying subscriber. So I'm just trying to map out from a business perspective if this actually works right so far what I'm saying is we're approaching about one percent of the eight hundred and I think we're going to get beyond that because I have about seventeen days to go and this month so I think the macro strategy here is this. You think about craters. A lot of people are talking about the creator economy. A lot of these venture capital firms are trying to invest into influencers. You look at the Kylie Jenner's of the world. They have a very big platform. People can argue that sure. She's famous for being famous. Her mom propped her up. Whatever what you can't argue with his she worked her butt off to get to where she is which is billionaire status but she's leverage influencers status to get out there and so a lot of these see firms are looking at you. Know She's a good example like you know. I really want to invest in influencers. Figure OUT HOW TO BETTER HELP THEM. Add value to their audience and also better monetize at the same time so description economy if that works out on the the leveling upside then we might consider rolling out a subscription potentially for marketing school as well wishes basically. We might be like fifteen dollars a month and we might say. Hey we'll give you an ad free podcast. We will also give you some courses and we'll give you a monthly. Asked me anything where you can ask? Neil night anything for an hour or so and you know for fifteen bucks a month. If that's valuable to you what you do it question for you guys is if you find that valuable tweet at me at Erico sue because we're still testing this right now but so far. The results are promising. I'm seeing everyone else do it? I want to make sure double check if it works on my end before we even think about it here

Solvable Presents: Help in a Crisis

"Hi It's Michael Lewis here. I'm nearly finished with the next season of against the rules. It's like last season in some ways. I'm talking with people about inequality in American society and what it's doing to our idea of fairness but this time only telling the story through the Lens of coaching and coaches the edge that coaches can give people and who doesn't get that edge in our society as we all know things are not normal right now. That's why we're bringing you this extra bonus episode. I guess I should. I say I'm still alive and so far disease-free but I've been doing a lot of interviews lately with people who dedicated their careers to helping other people. This is an especially good time to be talking to people like this. So you're GONNA get to hear a couple of their conversations right now. Here's a guy whose work is also really relevant right now. His name is Jimmy Chen and he left behind a fancy career in Silicon Valley to build an APP which is called fresh E. bt it helps people on food stamps. Well let's actually formerly known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program there about forty million Americans who accesses program. They get funds once a month on a car that looks more like a gift card than an ATM card. And most of the state programs don't have an easy way to let people know how much is left on their car. They don't even know their balances. So it's it's hard to budget and make smart decisions. That's a problem at anytime but it's a huge problem right now with so much food insecurity in our economy and Jimmy's got a solution. Jimmy thanks for joining me so Are there peculiar anxieties? That you sort of saying in response to this virus in the population that you serve. Well we've seen a lot of people concerned about not being able to purchase more toilet paper and I think that's the thing that You know people are often cracking jokes about in the general population. Why are you stocking up on toilet paper right now but when we talk to our users about that specific situation they actually have a very real need there for a lot of our users. They can't afford to purchase things like toilet paper in bulk and so they are purchasing toilet paper every time they go grocery shopping or on a very frequent cadence and so if the grocery store is sold out of toilet paper. That's a real problem because they don't have a backup supply that they can use and so a lot of people are really worried about that. So it's interesting because no one has explained to me why the that shelf and no other shelf in the grocery store. Except maybe the disinfectant shelf is empty. Yeah I mean. I don't know which way the flywheel started on this particular one but I know that for low income folks who maybe haven't had the resources to go out and stock up on Toilet Paper. It is a different level of scary. Okay so let me back up a minute. Let's just start a little bit about you and what you do like what your company is short. So I'm the founder and CEO of propel were technology company that aims to help people who are low income. The United States to navigate safety net programs like the food stamp program to improve their overall financial health. We build a free smartphone. App called the fresh UBT APP. That helps somebody who gets food stamp benefits or snap benefits on an e bt card to see how much they have left in benefits but also to connect to a variety of different social services to save money and to find different ways that they can earn more cash. Are you already seeing an uptick in users in response to what's going on in the economy right now we are seeing about thirty percent more usage each day than we normally do and to be clear those are for people who are already using fresh bts so we have also seen a lot of stats about how enrollment in the food? Stamp Program has gone up dramatically over the past week but the weight of the Food Stamp Program has actually structured. Those enrollments don't become actual cases usually for about a month and so we would see that a month later as people enroll in the program. So you're always seeing. What are you imagine is going to happen over the next few months? Well I think there are a couple of different populations that are worth thinking about here. The first are the people that are already getting food stamps. Now so you know there are forty million Americans priors took ovid and all of this crazy pandemic stuff there. A forty million Americans that were already struggling to make ends meet in a normal economy These are the folks that are already using the food stamp program. The majority of them are working and have children Just trying to pay the bills so those are the people who use fresh. Et now and they're facing a very specific set of challenges as this is kind of the financial shock that is really putting the behind. There's a separate set of Americans that we can also talk about the the people that are probably one or two tiers of income higher than that Maybe have a little bit of savings cushion but not a ton and as a result of the economic shock. Here they're the ones who are newly applying for the program so I think those two groups are GonNa have different types of outcomes but face the same challenges but how big is that kind of food stamp adjacent population. Well there's that popular stat. That forty percent of Americans can't afford four hundred dollars shock right now. These are all of the Americans that are living paycheck to paycheck. And it's not necessarily the case that those folks are all very low income you could be making seventy or eighty or ninety thousand dollars a year and still be in that population of not being able to afford a four hundred dollar shock as we've spoken to our user base about what the past week has been like We have heard from people that eighty eight percent of people who get food stamp benefits. And we're working have had their hours cut or lost their jobs entirely and of those eighty eight percent the average amount in job earnings. That has been lost is five hundred dollars. So we're talking about this. Four hundred dollars shock. That was going to send people over the cliff. That shock has happened right so it makes what you do even more important. Yeah that's right I think broader than propel the reason I started propel. Was this notion that we have a safety net here in the United States. That people who go through financial hardship have a variety of resources provided by the public sector and the private sector and those resources are aimed to help people in financial need to get back on their feet and more broadly. I think you know this whole Kobe. One thousand nine mass is a real test of our safety. Net in the United States of NACHOS programs like food stamps or programs like Medicaid and unemployment. And so on that also have to pick up the slack and are seeing tons of more traffic these days as people are looking to these safety net programs to help them to get through this really unusual time. Alan good you start the company. I started the company about five and a half years ago. How did this happen? Well I grew up in a loving and supportive family that also experienced a financial shock and had trouble putting food on the table. I think most American families we were sort of on the edge financially and then when my dad lost his job when I was about ten we had a few years of just really tough Financial Times. I was fortunate to go to college on a full scholarship on financial need and then spent a few years working in different software companies in Silicon Valley after I graduated from college and one of the things that just really struck me after spending years working in Silicon Valley and these companies. Just how people solve the problems that they understand. And that's by enlarge the reason why so many products that come out of Silicon Valley are solving the problems of twenty to thirty year. Old Men. Yes who live in cities and have gone to College? Are there's a demographic biased to the software that we create due to the problems that tech entrepreneurs

Hi-Performance Heritage - The 1968 Dodge Scat Pack

"WELCOME TO TALKING. Mo- parts high-performance heritage man. The world is crazy right now folks. And if you're like me you're probably sick of hearing about the worldwide. Corona virus pandemic. Here's the good news. There will be absolutely no fear. Mongering Kovic nineteen talk here today. I hope you're staying healthy and safe and I'm here to give you a little escape from the chaos by talking Mo- parts with you together. We'll try to get our minds off of all this craziness. Twenty twenty and talk about what I believe to be the greatest year in mopey history nineteen sixty eight. The year that Dodge introduced the scat pack to an entire generation of horsepower junkies and change. The world of MOPE ARE FOREVER. There are just certain aspects of Mope our history that truly made a significant impact and the scat pack of nineteen. Sixty eight is one of those things but before we get started with project carved the week rev up the show with high performance parts get moving with listeners stories and shut down the show with high-performance. Heritage. There are two things you need to know number one Chris at talking Mo- Parts Dot Com. That's my email number two two zero nine. Twenty eight Mo par. That's my voicemail. Your voicemails will be shared on this show so please keep them appropriate. And so will anymo- par stories sent in for listener stories. I'll even share the emails that I think would make fun conversation on the show now that we took care that business. Let's get this show on the road. This week's project car of the week was the nineteen sixty nine. Plymouth road runner posted on the moped. Hunter Page Friday March twentieth at nine. Am here is the at Nineteen Sixty Nine Plymouth. Road runner numbers matching Bucket Seats Center Council. Hearst four-speed three eighty three and ninety six package original rims and build sheet runs dry scraper. Twenty five thousand. Five hundred or best offer not interested in low ballers condition is listed as good an title status listed as clean located in Webster. New York. Here's the thing folks. I like this car. It's numbers matching. It's got you know some desirable options the bucket seats center console. It's a four speed. It's got the end ninety six package and the guy's got to build sheet. He claims that it runs and drives. Great those are all good things and for twenty five thousand you know. I think he may be a little bit high on the price. The color of the car is kind of like a dark Emerald Green which? I don't believe it was a factory color looking in the engine bay. I see that it's kind of like a flat black. So that's one thing that annoys a lot of people for me. It doesn't bother me that much unless it's a fully restored car and they cheered out on the pain on the engine bay and they went black. I don't really like that. But you know a driver quality card no big deal. That can always be changed later on down the road. The car is cool. It's got the factory tack you know. Obviously bucket seats the console. Those are all great options and ninety six. Who who doesn't love the Air Grabber Hood? Come on and it's got that coyote duster air cleaner. The car looks to be in reasonable shape. If you look at the pictures of the guy posted the car does not look like a rob box. So that's a good thing. I think that this car has a really good bones and for twenty five thousand five hundred. I think there's a little bit of room to work there. I would like to see the price around eighteen thousand. So that's seventy five hundred off which is a fat chunk of change. Let's be honest so you know around. Twenty two is probably realistic. Twenty three twenty four. Maybe I don't know but for me. I think it's a great idea to spend low to mid twenties for running and driving car that you can enjoy so this is definitely a car that I think would be a good car to consider if you have that kind of money to throw around in a moped project because running and Driving Project. Cars are amazing. Why because you can enjoy while you're restoring them or modifying them. Whatever the case may be so. I think this is a great example of a you know reasonably priced project car and it is numbers matching which is desirable. And it's got to build sheets so that's cool so you know. It does have a picture of the fender tag here in the fender tag. Looks rotted so. Hopefully you know with the information on the build sheet and the original fender tag may get a re- pop vendor tag made and enjoy the cars restore it. He's got some pictures of the underside. The underside looks pretty clean. Doesn't look like there's any cancer. Even the trump pam looks really good. So I think this is a solid car to start with especially if you don't want to invest ninety thousand dollars on a restoration this has really good bones and it's always a good thing to start with a project that has good bones because then you're not doing a bunch of metalwork on it and you can focus on the things that really matter getting it running and driving tiptop condition. You know this guy says it runs drives great numbers matching. You WANNA preserve that. Engine so Mike for me. If I wasn't going for a Oh e quality restoration and I just wanted to drive the thing. I just drive the thing you know maybe pull the original engine out and put something else in. That's von and maybe just start with restoring the engine you know if what you're looking for is an OEM quality build start with the engine get that restored and then slowly work your way to the point where maybe it's time to tear apart the car and do the paint and body work. That's necessary to get it. In Primo condition. I liked that the seller shared the Haggerty Vehicle Valuation report that says Twenty eight thousand two hundred on in very tiny apprentices average value. He shared that as like a selling point that prices based on opinion desire ability. And all that stuff. He's asking twenty five five haggerty's average values twenty eight to I still think. Lower Twenties would be a great price for this car. But I also wouldn't have a problem paying you know around mid twenties for it just because it is numbers matching. That's Kinda hard to find in today's market for a reasonable price. And you know some people say you know twenty five thousand dollars. That's not a reasonable price. Okay that kind of money. Well then maybe you should look at something a little bit lesser than a sixty nine road runner decent quality roadrunners and any decent quality be body. That's somewhat desirable. 's GonNa Fetch a lot of money in this kind of condition and you know that's another thing what what is a lot of money you know is five thousand dollars a lot of money because I see a lot of cars that probably were ten grand that people are listening for fifteen to twenty and the potential buyers are lookie Loos. What have you will say? Oh that's a thousand dollar car. Well is it. Is it a thousand dollar car? Do you know what I mean. So pricing and the Mo par market right now is kind of iffy. You see a lot of different people that say vehicles are worth a tenth of what they're actually worth and then you see guys that will say you know. I pay that for car. That's clearly not worth the amount that is being asked. So there's a for every seat folks and you know. Some people got fatter wallets than others. My Wallet is Slim Pickens. It's gone on a series diet as of you know and I say Oh yeah. I would buy that if I had the money. I don't have the money so me saying that. It's kind of like saying yeah. I'd I'd buy a charger Daytona with a Hemi. If I had the money you know what I mean so take what I say with a grain of salt but I've seen you know hundreds maybe even thousands of these cars were sales since two thousand fifteen when I really started doing a deep dive into posting all these cars and finding them and seeing the values and you'll hear stories about guys that go and pull you know roadrunners out barnes. You'll see oh. They paid five thousand dollars for it and restored. The car is worth fifty thousand or whatever? I'm just throwing numbers out here. But that's uncommon. That doesn't happen every day. So you can't really base values of cars on prices from back in the eighties and nineties. Okay it's not the eighties and nineties anymore. We need to stop thinking like that. These cars the numbers are dwindling. Every time a car is found in a barn in a field in a old garage. That's one less to be found. The market's really interesting and it really is hard to predict but I will say that they're never gonna be as low as what the eighties and nineties were. I don't care what happens in the economy. This economy could tank six feet in the ground. And you're never gonNA find a charger for five hundred bucks and if you do get on the show. Let's talk about all right because I like hearing those stories too. I have buddies that have paid crazy prices for really cool. Be Bodies and bodies. You know. They're out there. I'm not saying that they're not out there. But the chances of you running into one for that cheap pretty slim and if you do there's a lot of guys that will triple your money right away. You know what I mean. So if you're looking for a quick investment car. Let's say you find this car that I'm talking about here on project car the week and once five grand for it. Well I'm looking at the car and I'm saying you know eighteen grand would be steel. In my opinion you get this car for thousand and you could easily flip it for fifteen. That's a ten thousand dollar come up. That's ten grand right in your pocket. It is what it is. So that's project of the week. Nineteen sixty-nine Plymouth road runner for twenty five five air. Grabber car numbers matching three eighty. Three four speed. What do you want consul? This things got it all. Let's try to get it for less than twenty all right. That's project car of the

GameStop Stock Down on Q3 Loss

"Here's my question about game. Stop and I will preface this with a couple of data points. This is now this is now needed. An extra brass steel myself for what is about to come. Despite the overwhelming and growing popularity of video games game stop is a retailer with more than fifty seven hundred physical locations worldwide worldwide and a market cap. That is now under five hundred million dollars. So we're valuing this business at roughly ninety thousand dollars per location and under unlike children's place which you can look at five year chart of children's place and say okay. It's not a great great stock but it's basically flat over a five year period. Game Stop is down. Eighty five percent over the last five years. Here's my question. Is this still. Is this a business. That is so odious that even activists investors want no part of it whatsoever because I'm not an activist activist investor. But I could just say right off the bat. Hey you might wanna close some more locations you might WanNa get to say. Let's just call it under four thousand. Yeah I think an activist investor. I'd have to take a closer look at the balance sheet because There's not a tremendous amount of debt here And they've been paying down they've also At first blush I think confusingly been buying back. Shares of now that is literally returning money to shareholders. There's Gerald are giving their shares back to the company that companies giving shareholders money for those shares and that supports the price of everybody who remains a shareholder to a degree. I don't know I think I'd rather you know dividend that money out if if if that's what you're going to do Because that gives more money to all shareholders rather than the departing once I don't know what the best version of the future of this company any is is so they're they're suffering right now. and and I really loathe Using the the Metaphor of a perfect storm. So I'm not going to. I'm just going to point out that I lo that metaphor duly noted there confronting a number of things simultaneously multi-nationally which do not add up to perfection but add up to a big challenge? One is There in malls of course That's already known. There's something new to that. So the gaming consoles are turning over next year. So we're a year away and they're going through a period right now. Wow which is when they need to make a whole lot of their sales. which is the Christmas season and they're not going to because people aren't buying new consoles this year so there Team sales are off. You know in in the hardware category was like forty percent because nobody's going to buy the old versions of things when something new is coming up but it's not coming out for another nearly a year so they've got to wait around hope that next fourth fourth quarter Christmas season they get saved by this. That's a long time to wait around And in the meantime The probably the biggest part is that that people just aren't going to be buying physical Games the way they have. They're they're turning more and more to streaming them so they're they're challenged by where the business model is going which is toward streaming where they are which is malls and also what might be a one time thing which is a gap in in the hardware where sales at drive a lot of new sales. So we're basically seeing what played out with blockbuster video and movies over the past twenty twenty years play out in the gaming space and I'm wondering if I don't expect you to have an answer to this but I'll

The Illegal Business of Smuggling Animals

"Smuggling illegally taking things into or out of a country. We hear stories about smuggling all the time smuggling drugs cash weapons diamonds. But one of the biggest categories of items smuggled is a little bit more exotic so to speak animals earlier this year, a suitcase was intercepted in the Philippines that contain fifteen hundred little turtles that had been smuggled in from China. They're estimated worth nearly ninety thousand dollars. Were they ninja turtles? No not. That was reported but I don't know. They were wrapped in duct tape in, like stuffed in shoes and stuff. They're so cute. They were like little, little guys, like the size of a hockey puck and also a man was caught smuggling seventy live birds through JFK in hair rollers and just a few weeks ago. There was this big bust in the Philippines. A man was caught trying to smuggle seven hundred and fifty tarantulas estimated value around six thousand dollars in a box of cook. Ke's by the way, I'm not gonna eat cookies now. Right spider cooking opening a box. Scrawl scout cookies tarantulas Papa that he's not a thing you can get over. This is indicated from planet money. I'm garcia. And I'm Stacey Vanik Smith today on the show, animal smuggling the market for animal smuggling is actually pretty new, but it's not really big really fast, and it's having a major impact on species survival.

So how do you feel about spiders? I feel great. I only ask, because I feel like I have mixed feelings about spiders, might looking at them in the wrong way, people feel that an Arthur, bud life being an insect life or spider life isn't as valuable. So you don't appreciate its right to live as much, but I don't think cuddling sore Fluck Innis should be a criteria for conservation. What do you do? When you see a spider in your apartment recently, I found in my bedroom. I give it a drink at a little bowl of water for it. Yes, I did. I. Dehydrated. So she was very happy. And she was a female. She was very happy to drink from it. I thought about, you know, should I find insect and give it food, but it looked well, put outside and bent on its way. And I think it's doing well now how do you recognize when spidery dehydrates training for an upcoming fight or something like that? And it's like, hey, Waterberg water break and being a spider insurgence apartment is good fighter less good. We wanted to talk to Sergio about the cookie Bach seizure. The seven hundred and fifty tarantulas, which were worth apparently six thousand dollars. Is this something that happens, like, people sm- like that many people want spiders, as pets, and, and we know this happens like daily not only with spiders, though, no scorpions as well? Centipedes beetles, but you're flies of the whole range of animals. That people if there's an interest in buying them people will find a way to get them for me like business as usual. Yeah. How big is this market is at, like multi million dollars a year? Yes worldwide. Yes. Definitely into the multi millions. I mean valuable specimens can easily go into thousands. So a seizure of a few that's twenty tarantulas you be conceived, spiders, that values already thousands of dollars. It is committed that the animal smuggling market is worth about twenty million dollars a year call that today's planet money, indicator twenty million dollars or twenty million dollars. We don't really know because animal smuggling is illegal Sergio says animal smuggling has grown astronomically in recent years for couple of reasons first, deforestation and development has made even really remote areas, much more accessible to people so species that used to be extremely hard to get to are now far easier to catch second Syria says the internet makes it much easier to sell the animals using everything from Facebook to specialty sites to chat rooms, and to find buyers in all. Places, and it all price ranges. Sergio says one of the most smuggled animals on earth is thought to be abalone. It's a cease nail that lives, mainly off the coast of South Africa is apparently very tasty kind of a gourmet thing. Also, the abalone shell is really beautiful and strong. The abalone is protected, but there's just a huge trade in it. That's why smuggling muggings right Scott so popular smugly market, another, one of the most smuggled animals is the penguin sort of looks like an Armadillo, and it's covered with these big scales that are thought to have magical properties and the pangolin is sort of popular in, like, what would you call it homey ethic met homeopathic medicine. Yeah. And as a result of smuggling the penguin is now endangered when it comes to insects Sergio specialty they are typically caught for a few different reasons sometimes as pets, but there are a lot of other reasons to some people want for splaying. So there been the dried maybe you've seen them. Sometimes I've seen shops. Oh, yeah. Yeah. With the insect displays. Sure. Yeah. Exactly. Some people will kill the spider and put them in a sort of blasting. And then they just have them as a keychain sometime in Asia, they're fried and use snack or as sort of a jurist gimmicky thing where the will take Instagram photo of them eating tarantula ninjas throw the body away. So the animals actually wasted after all those years growing after all those efforts than his just nobody eats, sir. Here says the most popular insects to smuggle tend to have three major characteristics that combination of factors usually being big being colorful, and being rare is like the treat some of the things people look for if it combines all three than yeah. Prices skyrocket. So a lot of butterflies some Beatles, and the emperor scorpion. Yes, it's this big black, scorpion from west Africa. It's the size of your hand. Sergio says people like them as pets because they looked so terrifying. But apparently, according to Sergio, they're pretty gentle little guys, as far as spiders, the red kneed tarantula, which is found in Mexico. Ago is really popular. It's a large tarantula with red and yellow stripes on its legs. And Sergio says the red knee. Tarantula is also now threatened is smuggling partly responsible for them being at risk. Yeah. Definitely. Yeah. Relocate seems it would be such a small dent. You know what I mean something like four station, seems like I could see how that would put us species at risk. But smugly it's gotta be pretty little like a couple hundred spiders. They were only if you hundred I can see how to be fairly sustainable. But the numbers are higher are much higher really talking about few thousand every year. But the things that the spiders were studied, the red news one, they take that case to grow. They grow in a year or even to take decades to become adults even being able to read. So if let's say we harvest out of good colony a healthy colony, and they have a hundred have one hundred specimens spread about this little spider town, you will, and you take off of their numbers. That city that spider colony won't bow back very quickly. And what's the problem? Mm-hmm. With with an insect becoming extinct. Yeah. Well, that's, that's a that is the million dollar question, sort of that is the same question people phrase about all sorts of things going extinct. So if we were to disappear as humans the earth would do pretty well without us actually probably better than it's doing now. Well, if you wear to remove spiders, however, the world, wouldn't last very well, not as we know it, it wouldn't last long at all the number of insects, they every single days, just Astra nominal if that predation exist, and you balance would have to be in number of insects just explode. And then, of course, another predator have to take over and than we'd be filled of that. So you see, so we're messing with this delicate balance, not being completely aware, not aware at all. What on quences will be Sergio says that the animal smuggling trade seems to be getting bigger all the time. So he and his team, try to track the people that they suspect of selling smuggled animals, for example by watching online vendors and they also educate buyers about, where they should get animals and how to avoid buying animals that have been smuggled, but he says, even a lot of pet stores have illegally, harvested animals, because so many people just don't know. The problem we often faces that Esam is in takes hold of most people working in a field. We see too many destruction. Species appearing to quickly and we feel helpless to do anything about it. But as I see it as long as we try really hard. I'm okay with failing really well. So you're trying really hard. Yeah. That's all I can do really if you wanna buy spider really any animal. Sergio says you should ask for the documents that show. It was captive bred. What do you think Cardiff should the or get red knee tarantula to we have a mascot as long as it doesn't come in a box of cookies?
