To me on Diana I'm looking forward to chatting with my fellow salesman. This is gonNA. Be a great conversation because we're we're both passionate about this subject i. Am really curious. You know we live in strange times. Some people could say that small businesses are perpetually in strange times but I'm curious about what what you think are like reasons why? Few companies survive fewer even than that flourish and most of them fail. Yeah Great Question. There are a few reasons. Why I think it happens I think the problem stems I from. The fact that we really never taught how to be leaders of teams. We've been taught. How To be good engineers or good finance people or maybe a good mathematician. Whatever it might be something marketing or or Business Administration. But never sort of leadership or leading teams, which is really I think what a great leader does. We do a lot of things that are that are wrong or. Mostly. Wrong Because, we've never been taught anything differently since most businesses fail over time. there's some stats out there. I was just looking at them in preparation for this yesterday and. I looked over I, think from the Bureau of Labor Statistics over a twenty five year period. You go from about a fifty percent chance of lasting five years to about a sixteen percent chance of lasting twenty five.
Fresh update on "one hundred million dollars" discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"In the third quarter shattering any previous American record, the great American comeback is on. Okay. So that should be the final pitch going into the election. As we will see, that is not the final pitch going into the election instead, it's a bunch of other sort of random things that people don't care about nearly as much. Not a great election strategy. However, the economists are already starting to try to play this. down. So NBC News says the strong GDP figure camouflages decay shape nature of the recovery that has caused economic sectors such as housing to rebound strongly while other industries like airlines and restaurants remained morbid. Okay. But exactly, how are we supposed to fix that I? Mean we're in the middle of covid still so yes, a lot of restaurants are shot because if they are indoor restaurants with a lot of recirculated air conditioning. People are afraid that they're going to get covid and it turns out that airlines have been hit really hard even though the studies tends to show that there's not transmission on airlines the there have been no serious outbreaks on any airline even though we are now up over a million passengers a day in the United States which is not nearly where it was but I've traveled in the recent past the planes are fairly full and there's been no outbreak on planes because planes do have these. Filters that it filtered the air. When they recycle the, they're actually taking out the virus when they recycle the air, basically somebody would have to sneeze directly on you in close quarters or you know leave their germs in the bathroom or something in or free to get it on a plane everybody on these planes nast up anyway, and they do have the power under the law to kick off a plane if you refuse to mask properly on a plane, so there's not been any outbreaks on planes. But the goal of media down play the recovery because again, what the recovery shows is that the measures that trump has been taking are actually successful. Not just because he wants to reopen, but also because president trump would would like to retain a lot of the economic base that made the economy. So strong leading up to the COVID depression. Remember before covert depression economy was going great guns me with the lowest unemployment rate in half a century wages were rising extraordinarily high they were rising mostly the bottom end of the spectrum. The median income in the United States had risen dramatically under president trump under the first three years of his administration. So the underlying fundamentals good and this should be the argument. Right the argument going into the election should be the underlying fundamentals of the economy under trump would be much much much stronger than the underlying fundamentals of an economy under Joe Biden who would seek to put restraints on the economy in the name of various other priorities ranging from a green. New Deal too late to big Labour's priorities to the attempt to create income equality, which of course is in article income equality should not be the goal prosperity should be the goal anybody who focuses on income equality as opposed to prosperity for everybody is missing the boat. You can have income equality in absolute poverty and you have income inequality in absolute wealth. Right. There's a lot of income inequality between me and Bill Gates thank God I do really well, the income inequality means nothing what matters is the absolute level of income and what kind of life people are able to lead prosperity is the important measure not income inequality. Okay but here's the thing Joe. Biden. Would like to actually harm the economy has his actual policy goals are likely to harm the economy apparently he's flirting with Elizabeth. Warren. Politico citing three Democratic officials who have spoken with wars inner circle reports that the Massachusetts senator and third-place Demo Demo third-place Democratic presidential candidate has set on the role of Treasury, Secretary and plans to advocate for herself. Starting next week should Democrat control of the White House she wanted to the officials told the News Agency of Warren's ambitions as political notes. The Treasury Secretary in the next President Administration will be tasked with steering US economy out of deep recession even as the country struggles to was struggles with the corona virus panic. This means presumably that Elizabeth Warren we'll be negotiating budgets. It means that Elizabeth Warren will be trying to cram down particular programs on business the Fed. Her plan, her economic plan was likely to really really have dire impact on the economy I mean she was calling for a full on wealth tax where she wanted wide scale wealth confiscation for people with Networth greater than fifty million dollars, and as I pointed out at the time, measuring people by their net worth is not actually a measure of their wealth. A net worth is what your stock is were. Let's say you're you're a private company was a private company. Is Worth two, hundred million dollars. Okay. Which means let's say it's a five times ebitda calculation that means that the company has forty million dollars in business every year. But your expenses are thirty, eight, million dollars or thirty nine, million dollars to forty million dollars forty million in gross every five times Ebitda means that you end up at two hundred million dollar valuation. Let's say you own fifty percents of that company while you are worth quote unquote one, hundred, million dollars the problem is you can't actually liquidate your. Asset in the company one, hundred, million dollars now she worked at. So if you're talking about a two percent tax on one hundred, million dollars a two percent wealth tax on one hundred, million dollars than what you would actually be talking about is a two million dollar tax every single year for a company that may not actually be earning two million dollars in profit. Okay. So none of this makes any sense but Elizabeth Warren plans didn't have to make sense they were just confiscatory that was all it was about. The goal of course would be to. Quash people who are the actual investors in the economy I know that we love to believe that would actually drives. The economy is low level spending. That is not what drives the economy what drives the economy is people creating new excellent products and services with heavy levels of investment that actually change your life..

So you know everyone knows that Kim just turned forty and she had this whole big party where she flew twenty thousand people or something to Tahiti in a pandemic and she'll she's got. Kicked back on that yet but the the story that kind of came out of that was the birthday gift she receives from Kanye. West. It was a Hologram of her dead father. So kanye resurrected the dead for Kim on her birthday with a Hologram of her father and not only did the Hologram show up. Now first of all, you know her father is the famed O. J. Simpson Attorney from that whole case. So the father comes back to Kim in a Hologram for her birthday and not only does it appear? It speaks it actually talks. Did Not Mention Oh. Yeah. Well. Yes he said well, here's what he didn't say I he did not mention Nicole Brown's murder or Ronald Goldman's murder thankfully but he did go on to speak and praise Kim, and then the Hologram onto praised Kim's husband choice and Hologram said that Kim you've married the most genius most most most genius man in the World Konya West and so came with the social media she says for my birthday county got me the most thoughtful gift undoing her voice. The Most The most fought thoughtful gift of a lifetime, a surprise from heaven, a Hologram of my dad. It was so lifelike. We watched it over and over filled with emotion. Now freaks me out a little bit. But the next part of the story is that many people at this party noticed that Kylie wasn't around Oh that's. Well, you know what they're just she told a source told. US Weekly that colleges had other plans. So she wasn't there. So there was speculation that maybe the girls had issues they had fallen out, sisters can sometimes do but no, there's no drama there. Apparently, let's get back to the Hologram That is the creepiest birthday at all I can think of is like when it spoke like it would have sounded like Vincent priced from thriller. Happy Birthday Him. Actually see it sounds strange. Isn't it? I mean a lot of us would give are left home to spend another minute or two with a loved one that is no longer with us. So I understand what it's like missing somebody terribly and wishing machine. You had another few moments with that. Whatever this is electrically put together and Connie I paid for it. So Connie, I put the words into Rob's married. My Dead Father Comes back and praises my husband and calls him a genius and my husband paid for it and wrote the script it. Yeah. So weird and even I'd love to see my grandparents game and taught to them but it's not possible although it is. If you close your eyes, you don't need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars sometimes, I, close my eyes and think about them and that's enough for me. In these holograms particularly when the gentlemen paying for it. Kanye West is writing the script. Yes. So so so weird for me all my Kim sources tell me she absolutely loved it. This is not something she surprised this is the man she loves yes. He's a bossy boots and she really likes that about him. So I guess all all well, that ends well interestingly to my sources. Tell me this birthday trip was planned quite carefully to get conway out of the country while the election was going on so on. Tuesday were not political show but on Tuesday, it is the big election. Let me remind everybody Kanye West is still running for president. I think he would be campaigning or at least in the country that he was trying to govern and he's not and this is a plots by the Kardashians to actually get Kanye out of America, which I think's a good thing. I'm also too. I'm not buying Kylie Jenner's excuse else's to has a fortieth birthday spends all this money. You call you put it in a dire night. You Midlands plans not like I just call you text.

Finding Your Marketing Mentor
"Welcome to marketing trends I mean phase on host of marketing trends, and today we are joined by special guests mark. How're you doing fantastic cited to be here, marketing, Trans and hang out with you guys. Yeah. Excited to to chat with you. You Know You have your serial entrepreneur. You have a bunch of really cool stuff going on you have a book coming out that we're. GonNa. Talk about and everything in between. So let's get started. How did you get into marketing in the first place? Yeah. Well, you know I actually went to school and I thought I was going to study economics and then I took a marketing class and said man, this is for me and I took every marketing class I could take an it's so funny because when I went. To school and not trying to age myself here. But then even have a marketing degree. That's so crazy when I look back and think of it. But I literally took every marketing class that I could take from the universities that I was at and I just loved it. In fact, before it became an entrepreneur, I actually was the director of marketing for U. S.. A. Today. That's. A little known fact that people don't don't know talk about a product that changes every single day was fascinating and really cut my teeth on the pace at which marketing can happen. But it led me to being an entrepreneur, the entrepreneurial today, and I, have to tell you that marketing is at the core of every single business that I get involved in if I don't believe in. The product if I don't have passionate around the marketing, then I don't do it. Yes. So flush forward to today tell us a little bit about the companies that that you're involved with what you're working on. Yeah. You know often I get introduces a serial entrepreneur and what what is that that just means it's an entrepreneur that has his hands and multiple businesses I early on I. Would have won business and I started selling those businesses and I've actually sold seven businesses and so and I just there's nothing more validating than to start a business and it becomes of such value that someone is willing to pay you for it and so I got in the phase where I I was looking for more businesses that I could do that and I found myself involved. In multiple businesses now, I will tell you that that can be a detriment because you lack some focus that sometimes your business needs I can tell you right now it was a massive positive to me because when everything when the world changed earlier this year I had multiple businesses going and I'm here to tell you to my businesses within five days like five days of changes in. The world and those two businesses were literally done and I'm not sure I'm going to start him back up. They were more of physical presence stage based event based businesses and I think they're just done and so but I had some other businesses that were not in that way. In fact, one business that was in e-commerce and we started noticing that business started driving before the. World, kind of figured out what was going on, and by the time we were in the full-scale quarantine that business was up over five hundred percent year over year and what I love about business is that I've got this little philosophy that I learned from my mentor Kevin Harrington who I co wrote the Book Mentor to Millions and I would I would study him and say how? Do. You pick businesses to get involved in and he goes mark I just follow the eyeballs and I'm like follow the eyeballs and he's like, yeah I mean when I was in as seen on TV are when I was in infomercials, people watching TV and then they started moving to the Internet. So I created as seen on TV, DOT COM 'cause that's where the eyeballs were going. And now he's in a lot of businesses that are relying on social media and more modern means of of media because that's where the eyeballs are. So while I was sitting there with a business that was you know any commerce and also that for all the eyeballs went everybody's sitting at home and their their shopping from home in I've got this business that all of a sudden. Just blows up and I'm like boom to businesses have just stalled out and I've reallocated all my staff at NF leading anybody go and I read purpose them and pointed them towards the eyeballs which was ECOMMERCE and now I'm here to tell you that you know I chose Kevin Hearings as a mentor because I wasn't scaling businesses to a level that I thought I was capable. Of and come to find out it was me that was holding them back. He taught me what real scale looks like and I'm actually on my way to my first one, hundred, million dollar business all because I followed the eyeballs I was in the swim lane where everybody showed up and started swimming, and that's advice that I give all the time to people as they're trying to. Decide where to start a business what businesses start and I just say where are the eyeballs pointed where people looking if you start a business in the path of that, it has a reasonably good chance of being successful. So my principal business right now is ecommerce and then I also have a business I love physical products, and so I, try digital product and I just wasn't that Good at it and so physical product i. know I understand I like it. I can touch it. I know how to produce it another maximize it, and so I started taking what I learned in funnel marketing and applying it to physical products and found that physical products are just powerful inside a funnel marketing. So I have an Amazon Slash e commerce business that that sells products on. Twenty nine different virtual channels, and then I have a funnel based business that sells products through marketing funnels, all throughout different social media and wherever all's traffic is at. So those are my two principal businesses. They are deeply rooted in marketing and they are thriving right now even during these kind of crazy times
Dept. of Justice Accuses Google of Illegally Protecting Monopoly
"We we turn turn today today to to title title fifteen fifteen of of the the United United States States code code section section two, two, which which reads reads in in relevant relevant part part every every person person who who shall shall monopolize or attempt to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several states shall be deemed of a felony and unconvicted thereof shall be punished by fine not exceeding one hundred, million dollars if a corporation. So, if you don't know now, you know the corporation and question of course, is Google which found itself on the receiving end of an antitrust lawsuit today filed by the Department of Justice and eleven state of general. So as we do when technology leads the news we've gotten molly would the host marketplace tech on the phone to make a smart? Hey, molly. AK So So many questions number one is who's been around for a long time. It's been John Norma's for longtime dominant for a very long time what took so long for this to happen. Yeah, well, it's really interesting because, and in fact, the Department of Justice notes this in their filing. There is legally a difference between being really really really big and really dominant as you know and between maintaining that dominance in a way that crosses over into illegality, and so it takes a while to make that case basically that maintaining the dominance is the illegal part whereas it's fine to just be gigantic route What's The counterargument? What's Guna say? We're we're just doing our businessmen nobody here, but US chickens. I mean, yes Google counter argument is that this is a flawed lawsuit and that there are plenty of options out there for search their official blog post rebutting the filing of this lawsuit included a lot of gifts in which people use being Microsoft's having. So if you know anybody who does definitely, let me know I want to talk to them. And then they counterargument to kind of the lawsuit itself which a lot of pundits said. N Even. Legal Scholars people who worked on for example, Microsoft case in the nineties said you know this? This case could have been bigger. There were suggestions that it was being rushed even over the objection of some career lawyers and state attorneys general in order to get out before the election. And the scope of it is very limited to search the counter to all of that. Of course, as you gotta start somewhere and these cases are a big deal right an and searches is kind of the low hanging fruit. Let me just back up a minute to that to that bing thing you are, and we've talked about this on making me smarter our podcast, your devoted user of Duct Dot Gov for its privacy implications. Of course, it's more protective than usual, but also the point being. How many really good options are there if you want comprehensive search, it's got to be Google right because they've got all the data and everything. Well, there are a couple arguments around that. One is that people perceive ruled have better search results because it's filter bubble because who knows a lot about you? So it will say Oh if you the example, actually that lawyer I talked to today gave was that maybe there's a plumber in your area and a lot of people have used that plumber before and so they'll search they'll service give you that search option I. But in fact, you might not want that you might want somebody who's better vetted or something along those lines. The Art. The core of the argument that the Department of Justice is making here is that Google has paid a ton and a ton of money to device makers, including apple and using its own android platform to make sure that Google is the default so that every time I, for example, want to use duck duck. Oh, in a browser or on my apple device I have to. Find the setting that lets me change that default and most people don't write and let the whole thing was what got Microsoft in trouble right with back low these many years ago. The last time we had an antitrust thing was they were put s right, right? Yeah. This lawsuit impact is very, very similar to the Microsoft case someone on twitter referred to it as almost a cut paste. Well you know they can. They can do that at the Justice Department. We got a half a minute tops what now happens inside Google. They fight this thing because I imagine even though they can afford a lot of lawyers it's going to suck the life out of them. It's a big deal. It's a really big deal even if you quibble about the scope and whether they should have included advertising and data, the fact is that these cases have major impacts at it set Microsoft. Back a decade of innovation. It's at IBM back a decade back in starting nineteen, sixty, nine at and T.. So Google spends a lot of money a lot of time and is very, very distracted trying to fight this thing. Molly would the host of marketplace tech thanks. Thanks.
7 Laws of Podcasting
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm the orbital and today we are going to be talking about the seven laws of podcasting. So Neil that I've been podcasting for about been four years now a little over four years for marketing longer if you think about your growth everywhere yeah. Longer will leveling off for for seven years on that one. So it's been a long time. So seven years. For seven laws. Right. But I guess I'll kick it off I. so before I could get off meal and I did it no this podcast was going to go and we've realized that we caught onto a trend that is still taking off right now and podcasting is just going to get bigger and bigger last year the number was about seven hundred, thousand podcast in the world has probably got a lot bigger since. Then, and there's a lot of advertising dollars going into podcasting Joe, Rogan's podcast. They did a deal as spotify for over one hundred, million dollars. So it's just going to continue to be good times. It's a nice medium for people and you know the first law will say about podcasting is you know you've got to be consistent and share story around that my leveling up podcast for the first year only nine dollars. A day off of their first year after second year only thirty downloads a day, and then from there, it started compound, and then that led to that podcast is still there and now we have the mark podcast but we've been very consistent with it on the same lesson that goes over to if you're doing youtube if you're doing blogging if you're doing any type of content at all, it just it just consistency. Number two, you need half quantity the more quantity you have the more episodes you have the more listens yoga time it really does stacking compound. So don't just think that you're GONNA do well, even if you're consistent and you're pretty senior episodes every quarter or even weekly, you're not gonNA do as well as if you just did a daily with people like us John Lee Dumas, there's quite a few players who just Do daily a is more work, but you get the listens in the Dallas away quicker if you just quit way more quantity number three. So if you look at the Joe Rogan's of the world when he does video podcast, it actually gets chopped up into a lot of different pieces. So we've often talked about Omni channel and hasn't changed air if you do a video podcast like we're doing right now and you. Can make a bunch of different pieces. One sixty minute long form interview can become six mini pieces and you can put it onto youtube. You can put onto podcast whilst now you have thirteen pieces right there and then you can make little micro content for social. There's just a lot that you can do chopping things up and you can use a service like repurpose house dot io, the adding Babbit two, hundred, fifty. Dollars a month find on a five, hundred, dollar a month plan. Eventually, you can have your own team, do it for you, but that's a good way to get started with repurposing number four. You GotTa do Keyword Research. It doesn't matter what you end up talking about. If you don't have the right keywords with the title of your podcast and your descriptions, you won't get as many listens in Dallas. So Do Keyword Research. Number five seems like a dust and but still a lot of people fail in this. I, remember back in the day I was using Blue Yeti microphone and the problem with that one was I plugged it into my USB port. What you should be doing is you should be using a mixer so both nearly have a mixer read one called focus right and you can use focus right and then we both have higher pr forty microphones and so these are high quality microphones route four, hundred dollars from the Mike and the mixer. I believes anywhere from one hundred, one, hundred, fifty dollars or so you don't need a start with anything crazy but. If, you're going to be using a blue Yeti, which one hundred dollars still make sure you have a mixer because you sound a lot better and a very important thing is the quality of your sound 'cause when Neil I used to record next each other when we first started this ambiguous when we had to turn off the air conditioner, it would get really hot but also more importantly, it was really echoey and done a terrible because we're right next to each other and people said, oh you guys sound like you're recording from the bathroom Blah Blah Blah and we started getting bad rating from it it just it's not a good user experience. Number six aspirations. If you don't ask for ratings, you won't climb the charts and you won't get as many new listeners and downloads. So at the end of each podcast, there's nothing wrong with asking for ratings. Yeah and on top of that, if you're GONNA ask for the ratings, we haven't done the best job of this incentivizing people to put a rating. You'll probably get a lot more exotic just neil haven't done a good job about it number. Seven, you gotTa know your numbers. You can use look at the apple podcasts analytics look at spotify analytics as we look at where retention is and you can see retention will tell you what episode you should be doing more of. So for example, what we do episodes Seo retention might be ninety, five percent but if we start talking about how we like to plant tomatoes than our retention might be forty percent or so so it might not do as. Well, the other thing too is when we use chargeable chart able, that's how you spell it. They will show you your thirty day performance or your seven day performance for new content that you have coming out. So now I've been looking at them like, oh, well, people really latch on what we talk about certain things and they just they totally get disinterested when we talk about other things such as I don't know whether I'm just making things up.

Ritchie Torres: From The Bronx to Congress
"Something, I was thinking about wall preparing to talk to you is about how everything and politics and our country right now is just trump obsessed. Does it feel to you like we are paying less attention to congressional races like yours? Yes, and no Donald Trump represents an existential threat to our planet and our democracy in our social contract. So naturally, he's going to be the focus of our politics, but you know the two not mutually exclusive Donald Trump is a racist relic of the past. And the new generation of leadership the rainbow wave that has swept United States represents the future. You can think about both because when represents the past than the other represents the future and the next election is essentially a choice between the two. Do we want to turn the clock back? Would we want to move forward with the terminology describing the Rainbow Wave? I get frustrated with that personally because I think the current congressional group has nine or ten out queer people when it comes like nine or ten to me doesn't make up a wave will by wave referring analytic congress immediate t buddha. Judges the first openly LGBTQ, Bible presidential candidate. You're about to have the highest congress industry of the United States and you have nearly a thousand openly, Algebra, two candidates for public office. At every level of government we've never seen a greater quantity or diverse to the LGBTQ representation among candidates running for public office, and that's a sign of Paris and these city and state legislators like yourself. Well, hopefully feed into these more national roles as well. Look I got my start as as a volunteer community board. And then I became a volunteer in the city council. So you have to start somewhere you growing up could not look at Congress and see someone like you somebody gay so an Afro Latino you also dropped out of college. About your biography do not make the quote, unquote typical politician and so i WanNa know did you know that there was a place for you in politics and if not when did that change I never thought as poor lgbtq kit of color from the Bronx that I will ever become a United States Congress I never had LGBTQ role models growing up by rope in public housing had no conception of a world beyond the immediate boundaries of my neighborhood. The first time I met in openly lgbtq person a teacher. Is the moment that inspired me to acknowledge my sexuality for the first time for the first seventeen years of my life I had no openly lgbtq role models in my life in the Bronx I led a sheltered life and so that was somebody you knew intimately teacher what about looking into like politics and saying L. politicians there. There were no real role models for me I saw no one. No I did not see myself in the people running for public office or holding public office. There was certainly no elegantly lgbtq people of color at the congressional level that I know of and and so I felt largely unrepresented and you know my my story begins with the poverty in the Bronx spent almost my life poverty raised by a single mother way to raise three children on minimum wage. which in the nineteen nineties was four dollars and twenty five cents an hour and I grew up in public housing in conditions of bold and mildew leaks lead without reliable. He didn't have water in the winter in my life something of a metaphor grubbing a public housing development right across the street from trump golf course. So as I saw the conditions in my own home, get worse every day the government had invested more than one hundred million dollars to construct the golf in honor of Donald Trump and I remember wondering to myself at the time. What is it say that our society is willing to invest more in a gated Gilded Golf Course Donald From Then in the homes of black and brown low income Americans, and so that experience has been quality is what inspired me to become housing organizer. And then eventually took the leap of faith and ran for public office was twenty four openly gay at no ties to the political machine no ties to the dynasties of Bronx politics but I wish young and energetic with the fighting spirit. And I knocked on thousands of doors went into people's homes. I heard their stories, it was one voter who said to me in the forty years I've been living in the Bronx. I've never had a candidate for public office knocked on my door. was those kinds of interactions at led me to win my first race in two thousand thirteen I became the first openly Q. elected official from the Bronx at several years before then I was at the lowest point I had dropped out of college. I was abusing substances struggling with depression or struggling with sexual identity crisis. I had lost my best friend to inaugurate overdose. They were moments when I even thought of taking my own life I felt as the world around me had collapsed. And then seven years. Later, I became the youngest elected official in the largest city in America, and now I'm about to become a United States congressman. For. The only home I've ever known the Bronx and so I often tell people, my story is the story of the rocks. It's a story of struggle, but also one of overcoming.
Pandemic Economy is Making Revenues a Lot Better for Better.com
"Linked in just named better dot com number one on its list of top fifty startups, which means they're hiring like mad. The company is the sleeper success of the mortgage world. Undoubtedly, you've heard of its huge rival quicken loans, the largest mortgage lender in the US, but despite the eight billion dollars in loans, better dot com issued. Since March, you may not be familiar with the four year old company founder and CEO this. Shaw Garg tells a classic origin story in two, thousand, thirteen he and his wife were shopping for an apartment in New York City finding the right place at the right price was hard enough. Then they applied for a mortgage it was so much harder than it should be like horrendously bad guard told linked in writer Devon boundary. Their mortgage processor was so slow that they lost the apartment and get this. They weren't exactly slouches when it came to understanding Finance Guard was professionally managing billions of dollars in mortgage backed securities in his wife was a banker as battery reported guard thought if it's so bad for us, we'll how bad is it for everybody else? That's when he decided to start his own mortgage company one that would do things better. BETTER DOT COM launched publicly in two thousand sixteen like quicken loans better is an online firm that allows customers to apply for a mortgage and complete the entire process without speaking to a human being. Choose for the most part algorithms decide whether you get that loan or not, and what it will cost better. Dot Com sells the loans to institutional lenders a common mortgage industry practice. The big piece that guard changed industry-wide loan officers operate on a commission not. So at better, the company says its model freeze it up to match the right loan with a customer rather than incentivizing staffers to sell you the most expensive they can in addition customers say that commission fees as well as some other fees that guard wrung out of the process once launched better dot com did fairly well given the scads of competition out there, but it's the pandemic economy that. Shot better to prominence not to mention made it profitable as we've reported here before refinancings hit record highs after the federal.

The bottom line revenues were about one hundred, million dollars. Last year this year better expects to take in eight hundred million dollars in revenues. A newsletter called the information reported. The information also reported that better is trying to raise another one hundred million dollars in advance of a possible IPO. If it succeeds, the company will be valued at about four billion dollars. That's an insane amount of money for someone who used his apartment down payment to fund his business launch. That's right and his wife never bought that New York apartment. We're betting that they're glad they didn't, but and there's always a but right as high flying is this startup is it's a mosquito on the back of quicken loans and rocket mortgage both owned by the rocket companies together those two companies earned almost six and a half billion dollars in revenue just in the first half of this year both are household names unlike their smaller rival rocket companies went public in August in what the information says was the second largest IPO of the year, it rocketed to almost two billion dollars. With the economy faltering again though rocket share prices down ten dollars from its high of thirty dollars at the end of last month questions abound about how long the housing boom will last.
Trump's Taxes Show He's a National Security Threat
"On Sunday The New York Times published he blockbuster scoop detailing decades of trump's tax returns. You guys probably have some of the big headlines like the fact that he paid no income taxes at all in ten fifteen years examined that must be incredible. He only paid seven hundred fifty bucks in federal income taxes in two thousand, fifteen minute trump might face a one, hundred million dollars tax penalty depending on the results. Of An audit that is brutal but there are also some troubling foreign policy elements that we're GONNA cover today. So a couple specifics in trump's first two years as president he made seventy three million dollars from foreign sources that includes a million bucks from deals in Turkey three, million from the Philippines two point three, million from India those numbers are way bigger. When you look at decades of returns, he's got tons more money out of those places. He also paid more taxes of Robin did at home. So twenty seventeen, right the seven, hundred, fifty, year trump paid one, hundred, forty, five, thousand in India over one hundred, fifty, six, thousand taxes in the Philippines. So that feels a little bit un-american. So a couple of things you guys need to listeners accepting these foreign payments is illegal to violation of the emoluments. Clause feels like a more innocent time when we used to talk about that, it's also not the only way that these foreign countries can steer money into his pocket there've been countless stories of a government's and rooms at trump. In an effort to buy them off. But what's also now clear is that the he is just under a mountain of debt we don't really know who trump os four, hundred, twenty, some odd million dollars to. But we also know that he desperately needs any revenue he can get to stay afloat. So then as many people have pointed out a massive debt, like this will prevent you or me from getting a security clearance and having access to classified information in some ways you could argue that. This disclosure by the Times makes it even easier for these countries to find ways to bribe trump but I think they probably knew Venal to begin with. So ben anything jump out of you in this reporting especially in terms of potential for foreign influence the his financial challenges. Yeah. I mean I think there are two basic things that need to be really driven home here and they may be obvious people that it's worth really putting point on them. I who does he owe this money to and and does that give them leverage over him right and so presumably owns if he does tens or hundreds of millions of dollars to some foreign interest well, then the press, the United States is. Terribly compromise in terms of standing up to that interests let's say the Russian interests let's say it's a Turkish interest or whatever it may be. That's the problem and that's why the rest of us when we go to these jobs have to disclose all of those kinds of conflicts and that's why if we disclose too much leverage from a foreign source, we wouldn't get a security
The beauty hall for 2020 is here
"All right. So normally, we always start out with skincare. We know that you guys are huge skin care junkies, but there's so much news make up that. Honestly we have to give it some love straight off the top, and we're going to start with none other than rare beauty, the new line by Selena. Gomez. Okay. So I did not get my package a curly, and so I'm very excited to hear what you thought of the line and what you think the winners are and just definitely part of this bigger trend we're seeing right of so many celebrities launching makeup lines right now. Yeah it's. True I feel like they used to be kind of like on the poster to represent like a new lipstick or something in these big campaigns, and now it's as though they've stepped out of the frame and they're really owning their own lines it really you know with Selena Gomez I know that health is a topic that's really close to her heart. So we know that one percent of the proceeds from this whole line is going toward increasing access to mental health services. So I, think just having like so much more integrity behind his lines as what makes them not just a flash in the pan. Committed to one hundred, million dollars over the next ten years. So that's a pretty big deal that's super exciting, and of course, we know that Sephora, is behind this line as well. It's exclusive to Sephora so although it's not one of the Kendo brands. So to speak I, feel like you know Sephora they get all that Intel from their customers they know what they want and they really brought a lot of I would say like. Thoughtfulness, to these formulations, I think that's where a rare beauty really wins. Okay. So let's hear about it because I know a lot of people were kind of comparing it to fantasy like one what's been your experience so far? What's what have you been? Loving. So my favorite product from the lot is the rare beauty liquid touch weightless foundation, and so that's the one everyone's going to compare it Fendi. It has forty eight shades except this one is only twenty nine dollars, which is cheaper than the fence is thirty eight dollars Canadian, and of course, it launched just at the beginning of September I really love it. So first of. All just tell you like what it is. It's meant to be a lightweight valuation that goes on Super. Naturally but it has quite a bit of pigment to it. So it will give you a medium to full coverage finish and I think we're all familiar with the bottle. We've probably seen it on instagram. It's as beautiful like it's got the sculptural shape to it. So it then bottle and then it has like this white ball on the top definitely GonNa look good on your shelf e and when you open it, what's really unique is its got this gigantic doe foot applicator like it almost reminds me of the applicators of those. Big Conceal that were coming ask chair. Yeah. Yeah and it's meant to be like a Serum Foundation. So you actually shake it and you can hear that click, click click inside and I'll be honest I've tried serum foundations in the past and I don't typically like them usually they come with a dropper and although there really lightweight there's like a slickness and an oiliness to it that I just do not like I I feel like that was like a a flash in the pan kind of a gimmick that I don't think those are going to last but this one goes on and it feels more just like a very lightweight almost. Watery Foundation without having any oiliness to it, but it is quite pigmented. So what you're going to do is you're gonNA put dots on your face like in the main areas where you won't coverage for me that would all over my tease own and then I, just used my beauty blender and blended in as usual and I really found it had a very natural second skin effect. So it's not particularly Matt it's not particularly Dewey it just looks Berry Notch, draw it kind of reminded me of the Bite Beauty Foundation that I really fell in love with lots year that all clocks right because it likes under Sephora I'm sure they definitely Yeah, armed each other. Well, I mean Sephora. So as an example, Nour's launched a soft Matte Foundation this fall as well, and the publicis actually told me that that was in collaboration with Sephora and that they were using all of the feedback from their customers to tell them what they wanted So that was a very different foundation. It's quite matt more like the Charlotte Tilbury airbrush break by yes. A We know that they're kind of feeding into that and that just makes sense I mean Celinas. Not a makeup artist. Maybe, she has van Gogh helping our, but obviously, they're going to be using the power of their knowledge to create these formulas. So I love this foundation I think it's so natural. This is like a new favorite for me but I think it's really representative of the line like what I noticed just having tried quite a few products is that it's like taking existing ideas like for example, the lip souffle Matt lip cream we all know a liquid matlab color, but this one just went on, it gives you a soft finish. And it's so comfortable. But what I liked is it wasn't thick. So they managed to get that pigment without having that thickness like I can never get a clean line with a Matt liquid color. I always have to use my finger to blended then and then you don't get that that nice shape to it. So this when you do so everything was like, yes already out there but this is so thoughtful and it's just slightly better
Analyzing The NY Times Trump Tax Return Story (In Depth)
"The president's taxes long concealed records show trump's chronic losses and years of tax avoidance. I'M GONNA go through this story with you in an extremely detailed way I'm going to give you an overview. Tell you what's in the article was not in the article, and then we'll go through it in a an extremely detailed ways that you can get an idea of Some lessons that you can learn and apply to your own life, and I'll talk to you about what's behind the scenes so that you can feel much more competent when discussing this or really any other kind of of article this article in the New York Times is going to read I. Guess I should say, obviously, it's GONNA re differently depending on the political back on that you come. But it's going to be read very differently based upon whether you have any knowledge or familiarity with tax code in general how taxes work in the United States how business works etc or if you don't and. For that reason, it's really fascinating to look at People's responses to this article because the responses dramatically depending on. I guess somebody's exposure to it. So I, let me give you Joshua's summary of the article begin with Lead The New York Times Obtained Donald Trump tax information extending over more than two decades revealing struggling properties vast right offs an audit battle and hundreds of millions in debt coming due in short the New York Times of tained evidently all of trump's tax returns over the last fifteen years or so including returns from the business organizations that he is involved in. They've evidently analyzed those returns and they basically wanted to make a few basic statements number one. There was no evidence of malfeasance uncovered with regard to Russia or other kinds of of basic Allegations that have been been being made the basic arguments that they that they tried to advance in this article or number one that president trump has lost lots and lots of money over the years and I think that's the probably when the authors were riding trying to say, what do we talk about? They were basically trying to say, well, let's prove that. President trump is not a very good businessman because he's lost lots of money that would be number one with regard to potential areas of misdeeds. They talk extensively about a few basic things. Number one is the use of business losses across the organization including a seventy something million dollar tax deduction that had been claimed for and filed for from A. Number of years ago, talking to that number a little in a little bit consulting fees and also deductions whether deductions are are valid or not. Now I think for the anti-trump crowd. Unfortunately, there's no smoking gun in the taxes and this is hard hard to overstate how important this story is in political terms have been many political consultants who for many years been saying well, if we could just get a hold of the tax returns, then we could prove all of these things about president. Trump's crookedness and all the things that he's done wrong and then we'll. We'll be able to make that case as a slam dunk case that does not seem to be the case or at least if that is the case, the New York Times did not choose to profile anything in this initial story as a financial planner story and I said, Yep okay. That makes sense. Yup that makes sense. No surprise there. Yup. That sense that makes sense. That's make sense. Explain all the details of how. How that is but I don't see this is not a bombshell story for a financial planner and so I think that was that's one thing that's worth pointing out most of the techniques and and things discussed here is exactly what I would understand. In fact, much of what I teach radical personal finance. When I teach tax planning, the techniques are just simply a little bit grander in scale than what a lot of people do but there's not really any fundamental difference that I can see from what president trump has. been doing over the years versus what I teach people to do to save on their taxes. So let's begin and I'm going to give you a detailed analysis and I'm doing this just. So you can think about my brain of how I read articles like this I I'm I'm not I don't have a political horse in the race. I'm not trying to make go on where the other, but it is really interesting to read an article like this and think about the challenge of writing it I'm not. I'm not an anti, New York Times Guy I'm not a Pro New York Times guy probably read and and respect newspapers much more than I do many other many other forms of of news and I think that the Arctic the authors of this of this story. Russ boot Suzanne Craig Mike MacIntyre is the story of their lives right where they've been working hard to get it just right and you see that carefulness in the writing, but we'll still analyze A. Little bit of the land is a little bit of the details along the way through as well. So we begin with a with the lead. Donald J, trump paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency in his first year in the White House he paid another seven hundred fifty dollars. He had paid no income taxes at all in ten of the previous fifteen years largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. As the president wages reelection campaign that polls say he is in danger of losing his finances are under stress beset by losses and hundreds of millions of dollars in debt are coming do that he has personally guaranteed also hanging over him as a decade-long audit battle with the Internal Revenue Service over the legitimacy of the seventy two point nine, million dollar tax refund that he claimed and received after declaring huge losses, an adverse ruling could cost him more than one hundred, million dollars. Now in that lead, we see these these themes that I've talked about and I just I give you my reactions to what it says here most of this is designed to have a good news hook, which is true, and that's what a new newspaper should do. It's pretty amazing that somebody who is renowned and purported to be a billionaire would only pay seven hundred fifty dollars in income taxes and to the average person. Who doesn't understand taxes that will sound like a shocking reality. A shocking number
Texans Bid Goodbye to the LuAnn Platter: Lubys is Liquidating
"Wondering, I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this. Friday. September eighteenth some sad news from my home state Texas. Luby's is shutting down on the surface. It's another casualty of the pandemic. Now, if you're not a Texan or haven't spent much time here, Luby's cafeteria chain and an institution. It's an understatement to say that for decades it's been beloved at one time. There were more than two hundred. Luby's Cafeterias in eleven states. Now, there are fewer than eighty left all in the lone star state. The restaurant chains shut its doors back in. March the loss of Luby's goes far beyond the financial implications for the business itself significant enough and even beyond the jobs of its workers the liquidation of Luby's marks something of a cultural shift one that began years ago. The birth of Belugas we know today is the subject of many. Texas. Squabbles was founded when Bob Lou be opened a cafeteria in San Antonio in nineteen forty seven as the company's corporate history claims or did it get it start even earlier with cafeterias run by Bob's Ancestor Harry Lubi? In Twenty Nineteen Texas Observer Writer Andrea Valdez felt the question was so vexing that she wrote I leave the Arcane Texas history quibbles to the more about Asli knowledgeable of our readers. Regardless Luby's was one of many postwar restaurant institutions that sprouted up to serve suddenly sprawling suburbs in the late forties and early fifties. Once upon a time, the announcement of a Luby's coming to town conferred to kind of signal that this place is on the rise in meant heaping helpings of chicken, Fried Steak Square Fish Fried of course, creamy macaroni and cheese and Jalapeno corn bread all at modest prices and serve with a bit of Texas style. You want more you got it. How's your mom and him with Y'all be able to come back next. Sunday after church you get the picture. Its old fashioned meals, liver and onions and Jello cubes became both famous and famously addictive. It was comfort food for sure. But in a fast changing ever more complex world that bright red Luby's sign was. A comfort in another way to sort of reassurance that simple things endure friendly servers, sensible prices, and the luanne platter half an entree two sides in a row. When a character named Luanne platter appeared on the TV show King of the hill. It was one of the coolest knowing winks ever broadcast in the lone star state. Some might say. The fact that you didn't have to dress up for a Sunday dinner at Luby's made it even cooler until Luby's wasn't cool anymore. By the nineteen eighty s he to become the cool equivalent of driving a fleetwood Brougham something grandparents did. By the two thousands Luby's was suffering at the hands of fast casual chains serving fresher healthier food like mad, Greens, and chipotle. By last year, it appeared that Luby's could be on the way out in June. The pompous family which owns Luby's which in turn owns fudd truckers thirty store hamburger chain attempted to sell it. The takers however, last week Luby's announced that it is dissolving the chain and fudd rutgers to the pompous family plans. To return the money to investors, it could amount to some one hundred million dollars. For the moment, the website proclaims that they're still open. So. Perhaps, some might want to run in and get one last Luanne platter while you still can nothing lasts forever. Alas, Lassen it's too bad that in the case of Luby's most people are okay with.
Conviction politics: Floridas disenfranchised felons
"Joe Biden took to the campaign trail in Florida, this week. As a rally for Hispanic voters Mr. Biden emphasized seemed like a eight point. Getting people out to vote. So please. This election. Make your vote her. Through your vote, your voices her. Make a plan to vote has been pointed out. Make your plan to help your community for. But the very act of voting in this year's election has become contentious. President trump has been railing against mailing voting is having little evidence of fraud this whole ballot system where you can send it in. and. It's not even requested. We're not talking about it solicited. They're unsolicited ballots and they're sent in is very dangerous or our country and in Florida a fight over voting rights for former felons could see hundreds of thousands of people disenfranchised. So. In Two thousand eighteen voters in Florida approved a constitutional amendment allowing felons who had served their time except for murderers at certain sex related offenders to vote in elections. After that amendment passed Florida's Republican legislature passed a law saying, that's fine. They can vote but they have to pay back all the fines, fees and restitution costs of their incarceration. John Facile is economists. Washington correspondent. So that's the sort of thing that sounds quite reasonable. Right if you stole one hundred bucks from someone, you gotta pay back what you stole before you can vote but Florida's criminal justice system is unusually reliant on fines and fees from offenders. So you have people who had been convicted of felonies poor people who had to pay fifty dollars to get a public defender or one hundred bucks for some sort of fee to file a complaint. then. You also had fines levied on them that were quite heavy. So I spoke to one woman who was convicted of her part in a fraud scheme that she says was unwitting, but she was ordered to pay back fifty, nine, million dollars and no. One's ever going to be able to do that. I spent time with another young man who was convicted of a felony while he was basically just out of school and it turns out that when he went to registered to vote, he owed four thousand dollars to the county where he was arrested nobody had ever told him. That and other courts allowing this law to stand the courts have let it stand on Friday the last court in Florida weighed in and they've let the stand the court said the fines and fees were part of the criminal sentence. So they couldn't be said to a fully completed their full sentence until they had paid off everything they were told to pay off. So it looks as though almost eight hundred thousand people who thought they would be able to vote may not be able to vote and so is the supreme court likely to weigh in at this point now again? It's probably not going to go to the supreme. Court again, they declined to hear it in July, before that last appeal they declined over the strong objections of Justice Sotomayor who accused her colleagues of continuing trend of condoning disenfranchisement that's in Florida is this happening else? Well, the rules regarding where and how felons can vote changed dramatically from state to state you have some states like for mountain main where people can vote while in. Prison and you have some states like Florida used to be where if you've been convicted of a felony anytime, you never have the right to vote. So it's a Patchwork of laws regarding felony and franchise, but the trend has been over the past decade or so to loosen restrictions rather than strengthen them. But as we've seen in Florida sometimes that involves bats lighting sometimes the loosening isn't as loosened practice as it appears it should be. Felons aside, how easy or hard is it in general for people who exercise their right to vote in America? It's harder than I think it should be it's harder than most people think it should be it used to be the case that the Voting Rights Act which was passed in nineteen sixty five required jurisdictions with a history of voter discrimination. To submit any changes to how they conduct elections to the Justice Department in two, thousand, thirteen, the supreme court basically gutted it. The Voting Rights Act they said that requirements should no longer apply since then around seventeen hundred polling places have closed and previously covered jurisdictions, the largest numbers were in Texas Arizona and and most of those places are in heavily minority district. There's also the problem of long lines often what I found that I was recovering Super Tuesday in Texas before everything shutdown is that in suburban precincts. White it was much easier to vote than in inner city precincts, which were which were heavily African American of the Tino. In two, thousand, sixteen around half a million voters failed to cast ballots at their polling places because of problems at those polling locations. So I think people tend to think of voter suppression as as physically keeping people away from the polls that really doesn't happen. What does happen is that the exercise the franchise is likely to be much more onerous if you're a non white than if you're white, are we seeing any of those problems this round this time round for the election that's coming up. Yeah. We saw them in full force in Wisconsin in their primary earlier this spring in April. Shortage of poll workers as much of America does as result, they're only five precincts total in the city of Milwaukee, which is the state's biggest city in which had one hundred, eighty precincts in two, thousand sixteen. There are a lot of places that are really concerned about having enough poll workers to have all the polling place that should be open poll workers tend to be retirees, which puts them at high risk of Covid, and so a lot of them understandably don't WanNa come out and and sit in the crowded place for long hours. But there's a fear that this shortage of poll workers is GONNA lead to a lot fewer polling places in there should be. Perhaps. It's a naive question but why would anyone want to make harder for people to vote? So there are those who say that because Republicans are so dependent on older white voters who tend to be the most reliable voters that is in their interest to make it harder for non white and young voters to vote. Donald Trump. When he was talking about expanding postal voting essentially gave the game away. He said they had things levels of voting that if you ever agree to it, you'd never have a republican elected in this country again. So it seems as though Republicans rather than trying to appeal to as many voters as possible regardless of race color creed or. Are really trying to tailor the electric to best suit themselves. What about voting by mail something that would seem obvious into pandemic but that's been hugely divisive. This round hasn't it. Yeah Donald Trump has been inveighing against it, which is odd because there's a ton of research that shows that voting by mail tends to improve turnout but not for any particular political party more recently, he has been encouraging his supporters to vote by mail I. Think he has got nervous that if Democrats vote by mail and huge numbers and Republicans don't vote by mail at all then this may lead to an imbalance in the results that doesn't favor him. There have been polls that have showed that as many as fifty percent of Democrats, more plan to vote by mail whereas only one in five Republicans do you can imagine it sort of pandemic situation in red states where Republicans don't want to go to the polls but think that voting by mail is corrupt is now trying to walk back some of the damage you may have caused. How do all these trends impact the election this year? Do you think John? I think that between the president inveighing against the election warning that it's going to be rigged concerns about foreign interference. There is an alarming number of Americans people on both sides of the aisle who thinks that this year's election won't be free and fair I. Think there are concerns that people may be less likely to vote and that once they vote, they'll be less likely. To accept the results of the elections that is going to lead people to lose faith in democracy itself for those who do want get the vote out what are they doing about it? Well, people can check their registration status early, they could make sure that their friends and neighbors are all registered. I think there's a lot of worry among Democrats because traditional touch points that. They use to register voters you know the DMV or college voter registration drives those aren't happening now because of the pandemic and there are fears that young people are not registering at the numbers they should be.

America, why would you downplay a pandemic? That is not disproportionately harm low income families minority communities. Well I didn't downplay it I actually in many ways I played in terms of action. My accent was very strong. Necklace what I did was a with China I put a ban on with Europe I, put a ban on and we would have lost thousands of more people had not put the ban on. So that was called action not with the mouth, but in actual fact. We did a very, very good job when we put that ban on whether you call the talent or luck, it was very important. So we saved a lot of lives when we did that there were holes in the ban in the European bandon come for another month while they were Americans the holes in where if you have somebody in China, that's an American citizen we had to let him in president is campaigning as if the pandemic is a thing of the past summoning large crowds of supporters packed shoulder to shoulder most not wearing masks in an interview in Nevada he said he wasn't personally worried about getting corona virus but didn't say anything about the threat to his supporters.

Bloomberg Comes Up Big with $100M Cash Infusion in Florida
"So this was another big story from over the weekend was the announcement by Mike Bloomberg that he's going to spend at least one hundred, million dollars in the state of Florida to help Joe Biden win the state. This Washington Post story says that Bloomberg made the decision last week after seeing those numbers on Florida in seeing that Oh may be Biden's a little underperforming there. It's a little closer than we thought official. Voting starts on September twenty fourth in Florida. So the need to inject real capital in that state quickly is an urgent need. This is Bloomberg Adviser Kevin Cheeky he continues Mike believes that by investing in Florida, it will allow campaign resources in other democratic resources to be used in other states in particular the state of Pennsylvania. So there was always this fear of, Oh, where's Bloomberg's money? He got to speak at the convention, but he's not gonNA fork any over even after he said, he made this promise to keep his campaign employed in put all this money into help be trump. Personally, I was really never worried by didn't didn't really come after Mike to personally at least for too long also because they were both from New York I'm sure trump gave Bloomberg his fair share of grief during the couple of terms that Mike was the mayor of New York. City. You can tell when Bloomberg speaks whenever he goes on TV his ads were also pretty devastating, but you can just feel the vitriol contempt for Donald Trump Mike. Bloomberg is obviously a big money guy. You know he's a billionaire but even he trust Joe Biden more than Donald Trump So that should really be a warning to everyone and as Rick. Wilson always says Mike Bloomberg has more money in his couch cushions than Donald Trump has at all I think alluding to the fact that Donald Donaldson, shady loans, and he's probably not even a billionaire really when you get down to went off topic but thank goodness that is a breath of fresh air some good news for Joe Biden on the money side to with an even better August and by the way, the Biden campaign pointed out that since Calvin Coolidge in nineteen, twenty four, no Republican has won if they don't win Florida. And this year, it really is all about Florida because of trump doesn't get that one he's got to pick up a couple from either Minnesota Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania Arizona in those are looking shaky I mean that's really really generous because he's behind in all of them. So He needs Florida to have any chance and that's a little note to yourself if you're watching. On election night tour as the votes come in the days after in the mail. Well, we're GONNA know pretty quickly because Florida starts counting there's early. So we'll know on election night mostly with the vote is going to be. So a Florida starts going Biden were going to be in really good shape. That's when you know. Okay we might have this one.
Been Caught Stealing
"Thankful faults jewelry and fine art. Maybe a casino carefully organized plans by people dressed in black turtlenecks with lots of cool gadgets close calls. What we remember as the daring heist of one of the world's most famous paintings. was really neither of those things. The heist wasn't particularly daring and the theft of Leonardo DAVINCI's Mona Lisa. Wasn't even noticed until well after it had happened. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. These days the Mona Lisa also called in Italy login Kanda and her famous enigmatic smile hang in a prominent place in the Louvre in Paris. It holds the Guinness World Record for the highest known insurance valuation in History at one, hundred, million dollars in nineteen, sixty two. So. That would be about eight hundred million dollars today. Over six million people go to see it each year. It's so popular that you can't even snap a quick Selfie of it without having a few dozen other strangers, hands, and cell phones in the frame. This popularity certainly wasn't the case when the painting was I hung in the Leuven eighteen o four or for the century subsequent. Neither was popular with critics when the artistic elite who often relegated it to the low end of DAVINCI's work it was basically just another painting. It was so unsocial in fact that it took the better part of twenty four hours before staff even noticed the painting was missing in Nineteen. Eleven. A handyman named Vincenzo Perrugia was working in the museum and he simply waited in a closet until after the museum had closed. Tuck to the painting under his smock walked on out. He was unwittingly aided by a plumber also working in the museum who unlocked a for Peruta when he found himself stuck inside. The police were called and they searched the museum. The only sign they found the Japan Kanda was frame laying on a staircase. Though police did find some twenty one other paintings in the museum. The curator's had previously reported missing. The. Search went citywide then national then international. Ships were searched before they left France or after arriving in their port of call. A reward of over half a million dollars in today's money was offered. The Mona Lisa's picture was printed in newspapers all over the world. It became a of Mona Lisa Mania. The theft of this single painting served a spawn multiple criminal enterprises. People on the wrong side of the law knew that those with more money than morals would want to buy. LEGITIM- Kanda. A pair of confidence men from Belgium hired a small army of forgers to make quality fakes, which they then sold to select around the globe. They made sure their buyers were unlikely to ever meet and rested soundly knowing that no one would let on that they had purchased the most famous stolen painting in the world. Though today, one of them would probably take a selfie with it. The huge reward and the number of fakes in circulation meant the police were inundated with leads. For two years they searched tirelessly. But Fruitlessly The sixty man strong force even interviewed, Peruta Twice. But decided, he couldn't be the criminal mastermind they were looking for. Not only did those two years not yield the Mona Lisa the police didn't even find the forgeries. The head of the Paris police retired in shame. Did, peruse, you get an enormous payday for the stolen painting. People were soon to learn that he didn't steal it for money. When ferruccio approached museum in Florence to sell them the painting, the museum's director called the police instead. After. His arrest Russia's stated. I worked in the Louvre making frames for paintings stolen from Italy by France every day I pass login Kanda and swore I would return it to its rightful home. He seemed convinced he would be heralded as a hero. This was sadly not the case but the Italian courts were sympathetic giving him only a year in prison for the world famous theft.

Will Australia have access to a vaccine if/when it is discovered?
"This is corona cost a podcast all about the coronavirus I'm health report a Teigen Taylor on physician and Journalists Alter Norman Swan it's Tuesday the eighteenth of August. So No, we're hearing that the government seen advanced negotiations with a couple of different companies about a vaccine securing a supply of vaccine for. STRATEGIA. Even though don't actually know which accents GonNa work yet what's involved in this process of making sure that we can get it once we know what works well, there are two ways of getting one is to enter into events purchase deal. Which is what America has done with several manufacturers. So for example, with the Oxford Vaccine I think they've pre-booked three hundred million dollars is the European Communities pre-booked four, hundred, million doses. Then there's does is they've got to give to Garvey for low income countries. It doesn't leave much in Britain's got to get. Some doesn't much out of their first billion doses. So you know and that's the front of the queue. There is an Indian manufacturer sending up to manufacture some of these vaccines particularly the Oxford one. Last week on seven thirty, the telling Nolan from the University of Melbourne was saying that he's reasonably optimistic going to be more than one vaccine available in a reasonably short space of time in other words this year sometime towards the end of this year. And therefore, there probably will be plenty of doors to go around. But that doesn't mean to say that we're home and hosed with that. Now, it's believed that the negotiations the government's doing are with the Oxford Group, but we don't have manufacturing capacity for that kind of vaccine in Australia. Sort of vaccines that CSL US but we have got expertise in vaccine production and the easiest way to do this is to license the technology and manufacturing in Australia so that we can guarantee that. So so in other words taking supply away from anywhere else we would be manufacturing the vaccine for our own use. It does mean, of course that if it doesn't work, we've got to find. Vaccine from elsewhere but it's quite likely that what are the vaccines which will be fun to? We'll be the vaccine, but it's not guaranteed right. So like scientists got a lot of different irons in the fire here and some companies have decided to back a particular one and stop making that. So that one that you mentioned the Oxford one has a billion orders already in what if it doesn't work Tip It all down the drain just closed because of the junk heap that's taking. So the so the least risk for Ustralia is to license the technology and pay a license fee vaccine. Without pre purchasing vaccine so that we can produce it if it works. And in the hope that we can tool up pretty quickly. Probably even test that in advance and you might want WanNa, take a risk and produce vaccine. Ahead of time we they're doing in the United Kingdom or the other way that the the government can do to pre purchase vaccines and what Americans do with some scenes saying, well, we will guarantee you x billion dollars ranks one, hundred, million dollars if your vaccine is approved for registration so there's a caveat on it as well, but it does give those companies the ability to borrow money or. Gain grants or other things because they've got guaranteed income should it be successful? Can we take a step for a second and talk about what it actually takes to get a vaccine from the lead benchtop into the little glass vial that you see at the pharmacy, which is what they didn't stick in your arm. The problem is that was the vaccines that are most likely to be successful. Initially, it's novel technology and the novel technology is on both sides of the equation there's this edge of. And there's the actual bit of the virus itself. So with the Oxford vaccine, the event that's going to amplify the immune response is actually an admiral virus from a chimpanzee. The Russian and Chinese vaccines are also adenovirus vaccines. Now, that requires new technology development, develop it safely, and then you go to the technology to produce the the bit of the Corona virus that you're gonNA use to stimulate the specific immune response with the Madeira no one in America, the vaccine, which is a little packet of. Genetic messaging which goes into the cell to produce. A bit of the virus to stimulate the immune response. There's no Ativan. But. That requires special manufacturing technology as well. So Australia acquiring, the latest technology would be acquiring, know how that's going to be very handy for into the future and makes us independent of other supplies overseas Rava van necessarily pre purchasing large numbers of the doses from overseas in the hope that they were going to be approved. Now, America's done a couple of things that they're they've pre purchased unconditionally some vaccine and they've pre purchased some vaccines. On the basis of them having been approved and they're just hedging their bets and Some money might well be wasted in this and some vaccines which are being pre manufactured such as Oxford vaccine may have to be junked if it doesn't work one hopes not.
