GM to offer car insurance based on driving habits
"There's a change happening in automobile ownership. That is big time significant for your wallet. It started as so many other innovative things seemed to do. And the vehicle business. With tesla that has experimented with selling vehicle insurance along with your ownership or lease of a tesla and they only do it in a more limited fashion but something that maybe eventually they will roll out is a national thing. The reason tesla is so keen on this. Is that traditional auto. Insurers seem completely unprepared for an era where the vehicle will do the driving and and think about that. Thought you just sit there while the vehicle drives you to your destination so then if something happens in your in iraq. Whose fault is the car or is it you or is it. Some combination of which traditional auto insurers have fallen flat on their faces responding to the technological change in the market will general motors which is also installing. More and more vehicles with autonomous systems is now launching a car insurance business that they're planning to offer across the fifty states so they're only going to do it in a slow rollout 'til sometime in twenty one when they'll have the legal right to sell auto insurance in the whole country and they've not said when in twenty one it will be available but what they're doing at gm is you know forever. Even before tesla was cool. They've really pushed their onstar connected. Data service that's become steadily more sophisticated. So when you sign up if you choose to if you're a gm vehicle owner chevy Gmc truck buick. Whatever cadillac when you sign up you are giving them permission to figure out. Are you driving or is vehicle driving itself and if you're driving how are you driving. What speed are you going at. Are you doing jack. Rabbits stops and starts and stops. Are you doing rapid lane changes in other words. They're going to collect all the data on how you are operating your vehicle and whether you're operating it or the vehicles operating itself one of the penalty box things is if you don't have your tires properly inflated which increases the chances of you being in an accident when your tires or under inflated note to self if you don't have your tires properly inflated just generally not just about the premature wear and tear of your tires it can put you in danger. Get air in those tires. What i do is i have An air pump at home. That's a really good one that i can just Hook it up to the to the cigarette lighter. They're still is such a thing in the car and hook it up the tire and just watch the meter to see when he's got the right. Psi the right Number of pounds of air in the tire. And then i know that tire is right and safe but the idea of vehicle insurance changing like this is this is only the beginning where we will be judged based on who who's driving how we're driving and where we're driving and the traditional idea of auto insurance is not over but it's definitely at the beginning of the end in how we pay will be completely different potentially per mile of variety of ways that we will pay for vehicle insurance and if you are a gm vehicle owner and you have on star when this coverage is available. Look at it and see if it would be a money saver for you instead of being with a traditional vehicle insurer.
Nature: Disconnect to Reconnect
"We are your host. This is how we came here. My name is real Vin and this is a podcast about Brown men talking about issues that matter to you. We talk about things that we don't usually talk about in home and communities were just three regular Compass sharing our experiences to inspire positive change. Compa pull up a seat. We have one ready for you. Welcome back to Los compas Lowndes and we have yet another topic. It's almost it's interesting. The the last the last topic was brown men in the ITP and you know, sometimes you got you got to just get away from that screen, you know, and you gotta get away from just everything that's going on, you know going on in the neighborhood man, and and I know off for for the school psaki, you know, one big one way that we do it is by just going out into nature man. It's a way to disconnect and Thursday at least for me to recharge and reconnect, you know, so but one thing that I always see, you know that I that I always observe is that I'm usually the only Chicano out them, you know, usually the only brown man out out there in nature, you know, whether whether it's going to ston a you know, a little four hour hike or going camping, you know, yep. Going for the Deep ones like, you know going, you know going into the national parks and everything. It seems like I'm usually the only brown person there or you know, the the small brown community that I go with, you know home and that's always hurt me, you know, and I don't know if about you guys if you noticed that or you know, if you even you know, if you know, but that's a good what do you guys think about? Yeah, that's a good way to look at this stuff. It's like very interesting kind of twist our topic on the outdoors experience for for all people, right? And then sometimes you don't think about it. But but yeah, that's something we can dig into in terms of like why are there so few of us, you know, maybe maybe there's a secret place that we're not aware of and we're not invited but but you know, I certainly like to think that the outdoors experience is open to all people regardless of your shade of Cutler, but that's that's certainly something that I've experienced and I've looked at as well and it's funny how you said, you know, we lost one passes all about connecting. But sometimes we need to disconnect to connect right, you know connecting in a different format. So I think that's really awesome. So for me for sure getting out there, it's beautiful. I think blogging I haven't done it in a while and especially during this pandemic, you know, there's no way we're getting out there with the kids. But you know, I think about hiking or I think about the outdoors as just an odd been space and opportunity to reconnect with nature, right or reconnect with Earth. What what is out there for us and what can we take advantage as individuals and as fathers and husbands and family men to get out there with our kids and expose them to all the beauty that nature has to offer. So when I think about that I think about it long terms of an opportunity to get out and opportunity to disconnect an opportunity to expose my children to something very beautiful, you know, whether it's the mountains the beaches or off. Or any other outdoor activity when I really like when I go up there is there's no even if you want to use your phone sometimes I mean, you can't change it. So nobody's going to interrupt you, you know, like there's this this place. I like to go camping and it's like it's in a canyon, you know, so you're surrounded by mountains and there's no way that you could call anybody. You know, you're just you're just strep right there. But I mean actually right now as I'm saying that I was able to hack the system one time when how long in there because my car has OnStar, you know, and I started that satellite and then I remember when time just just to see if I could do it, you know, I was actually able to make a call from from my OnStar in my truck, you know, but other than that when I take like my kids and then all of a sudden they're they're phone stopped stopped working wage. You know that my phone. Yep, that's how it is. You know, I mean, it's like well we'll go deep into the I like going like deep into where where it's like deep in the mountains, you know, cuz I was going to say that like I've noticed right now. Okay. I'm thinking of this one place in particular in Azusa where there's a like a creek and I do notice that there's a lot of a lot of us are a lot of Latinos right there, you know along the creek in the other example, you know, like they go right there and and you know, take their food and right there, you know, and that's a big choice because we were kids. I remember my uncle used to take us to the radio was called to say that I remember to somebody real little too will take your Hibachi Little Grill and then and it's funny really, we would my my father and my uncles and they will get the six packs back. You know, they had the six packs of a Bud Light or Budweiser and it put them inside there. He'll cuz a while so cold. Yeah, that was dead. Journeymen and you know it was cool. It would be in the Real by you know, taking nice little cold dip in there and then the the senioritis and the seals and the father's would be like cracking the sword the beers and I thought yeah, there's cool. You know, it's family you brings you bait. They they they they took an opportunity to expose us as little kids to you know, something like that are six packs on put on a river.

"Is no object, and you're in the market for something like this, obviously, we're giving it a thumbs up along the lines of BMW guys there doing something But I'm not so sure that it's going to work. Mark Jim, I want you guys to jump in here, but they're offering features that you can pay for more or less as you go. They could be taken away or you can Adam on As you continue on down the line. Explain that to us. Cursed today can be updated over the error, which you know anyone who has a cell phone. You realize Hey, I woke up in my phone looks a little different. It updated overnight, Right? Well, cars could do that to know on And there's this big fear in the community that carmakers will start making us pay extra for things like heated seats, or, you know, power this or power that or whatever. I don't know that that's exactly what they're going. After I think probably what they're going to do is say, Hey, you know, remember, OnStar used to pay for a month like that? Well, there may be some other features that are built into the vehicle that you can pay monthly and might make sense to pay for some months and not other months and it could actually save people money, I think, but but there's a lot of hand wringing going on that people are worried that there That car companies are going to turn off features on vehicles because you can't afford to pay for one thing or another, even though you already paid for it up front with the purchase of the vehicle. So if I'm in the BMW, you know made, for instance, and I want my bum warning in January. Does that mean I'm paying 15 extra bucks for a heated seat in January? And I don't have to pay for it in June. It could it could and think about it, though you might say okay seat heaters. I need in the cold weather months, but I don't need in the world Mother months. Maybe that's something I can turn off. I don't know. I mean, that might be a little further down the road. I think what we're talking about more like services that you can add to the vehicle like the concierge that BMW offers initially and maybe in the future. It'll get to actual functions in the car like driver assist pilot system or Or maybe a rear seat, entertainment things like that. All right, Jim..

The self driving feature that they say is from on ramp right to offramp. In other words, don't use it on city streets. But you can go ahead and put your car into self driving mode on the highways, right and the cost of what experts the software, and then they eventually they say that coming soon with a software change will be the ability to do that on city streets. Instead just highly question it's not a joke as series, how many people do you think about Tesla's? So they could drink and drive. Honestly, I talked to Pipo who said that they did that because the tesla drive straight. Yeah. Those buses if get pulled over I if they get pulled over, but if the car's driving perfectly straight the whole time some people want to eat seriously. I've seen people don't make up reading the paper all that. But but honestly, I think that there's a subset of folks. And it's not just all right? Let's say any car that has the self-driving stay in your lane. Kind of stuff Nissan's habit. I mean, it's great. It's beneficial. It's probably good that the cars driving at that point.

"And Hearst, just south of the northeast small wheels is broadcast live before a prerecorded studio audience. From Dallas, Texas, breathing once again, the FCC doesn't care what goes out on the nation their waves. We with. Wallace the talk show that makes you inside of the automotive industry. Special guests this week. Actress Lori Loughlin with her new book when you're animal house kids Goethe Farber college, plus the colors. And now the man who paid someone to take his SAT test. So he would get into Tarrant county college. It's more. And good morning everybody. This said Wallace. Welcome to wheels for this Saturday morning. So. S six in row. Six pete. Yeah. Look out. Lebron Michael Jordan. It's me all I all I had to do with simplified the openings make the text bigger. I think it was the text bigger. Six words helps to. Yeah. That and you watched animal house. So you know, I've been practicing for the next time. You tricked me into that to Medina, John? I knew gonna practice. God. Okay. He didn't get any how good morning everybody. Welcome to Wales for the Saturday morning. And I was talking to my buddy David Welsh up at Bloomberg BusinessWeek couple of days ago, and he had just gotten back from San Francisco where he took a ride in a self driving taxi, the Zoot self driving taxi, and the first thing he said was wow, it is so far advanced compared to GM system. It's amazing. Now understand it's no not very fast as he pointed out at least we're doing twenty to twenty five miles an hour is still a geo fenced area. But he and I started talking about why are all the car companies doing this. And what's the ultimate plan? Now upfront you always hear the PR stuff. Well, if we make self-driving cars driving will become much safer. Yeah. Here's why that doesn't really wash the car companies are spending so many billions of dollars. Investors are now flipping out a why they're spending so much money on self driving cars, and the car company has been car companies have been known to fight over putting the most moderate safety device it costs virtually nothing on a car blind spot warning indicators lot of car companies use that now we still have cars being sold in America that don't have blindspot warning indicators, and it's relatively inexpensive. So if you believe the car companies are willing to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to make self driving cars that so far. Nobody's even asked for. And there's no end to how much you're gonna spend before they're perfected. And the by the way, they'll probably never be perfect it as such. But then they won't spend the money on some car companies. Put blind spot warning indicators on a car makes again, no sense whatsoever. But then we started talking about what's really at play here. And I said, I think. It's the advancement of the onstar model. And David added to it. I think you're going to have to put in the data money. And that I think is where we're going with all this the onstar model for those of you don't know GM came up with it back in the nineties, and it was a service in fact when I had the first vehicle with an onstar service way back when they wanted me to go over to the GM zone office. So they could show me how the onstar button work, and you push the button operated Kim on they said, well, you can make hotel reservations for restaurant. And I said that's great in Dallas. I don't know any restaurant. I'd want to go to where the takes reservations, you can just walk in those seats you. Well, you can get directions. Well, we have navigation navigation system in cars now what's that good for alternately? When it was all said and done, they said, well, if you have an accident, it will automatically notify the operator. Well, maybe that's good in an accident where you're unconscious, but past that as I pointed out, I have a cell phone still onstar became popular and the more popular became the more money GM made and the more they wanted to get into that into the business because the margin of profit was twenty five percent. You know, it's like the apple iphone. I'm not. So sure apple is made as much money making an iphone as they get paid on a cut of the action on the cellphone fees. And it's worth billions, and we're entering into what's known as the surveillance economy. I mean right now, even with your iphone, you go someplace iphone, or your I guess you galaxy whatever you have for a phone. And attracts you wherever wherever you go. And you turn on apps. They said we want to know where you're at. Uber was following their their passengers after they left their ride to see where if they went shopping and something. Then they compile all this data on you. And you can sell it. This is how Facebook has made their fortune. They follow you not just when you're on Facebook. They follow you around the internet to see what you're doing. And they compile all the data and they sell it off. It's become what's known as the surveillance economy that all of our habits is as.

"You already have your Senate. You don't wanna pay for reordering hardware? You just want to get your stuff when you need it. So one of our most important design considerations was just. We can give this away to people for free and make money off of the actual coffee in the subscription. So we kept it purposefully exemple, and I don't think in the future we're going to add any bells and whistles this just one button to do the wifi sink. And that's it. And I think that's how it should be. We've got this process where you are creating a really interesting disintermediation marketplace kind of model it's like a lot of the modern technologies all at once and one side of this is is roasters. So I'm curious what you've learned about that side of the business, and what kind of receptivity you've gotten when you go and say, you know, I wanna sign you up for this thing like all you'll have to do is ship directly, and we're just going to be like a customer acquisition vehicle for you for free. Like, it sounds like a good pitch. Well, they do give us wholesale price for the most part. So you do have to sort of convince him a little bit. But it's been surprisingly easy for a couple of reasons. First of all all of these roasters are e commerce enabled already if you look up a random. Mm coffee roaster that you like onstar. They're going to be selling online already. And that's thanks to shop a fi. So we're kind of riding on top of some waves of ecommerce fully penetrating into the economy. They're already shipping individual bags. So it's not that hard to convince them to ship our individual bags and also they're very familiar with this problem. They see their customers turn out a subscriptions all the time. They see people complain saying, hey, I have five bags and I want a refund for four of them because they're all going stale. And so that when we go, and we tell them about this. They're very excited and a lot of them really want to get on board because they want their coffee to be super fresh. They don't want people having multiple banks piling up because it doesn't present their coffee. Well, and part of our value proposition is that we actually ship at the right time and people can select whether they care more about freshness or not running out and a lot of our customers do care about freshness. So the roasters love that they want people to enjoy their their coffee. Add like, the optimal time one of the things. I'm always interested in in any of these like strategic power frameworks, whether it's porters or. Or Hellmers or whomever is is is supplier power. And I'm curious how you think about supplier power right now. And maybe prospectively I would love to say that suppliers. Don't have a lot of power in this model. But in reality, they kind of do because people are very brand sensitive. So could put a cherry on top of that. But we do own the customer relationship and calf of customers pick just like rotating product like a pen Dora. Yeah. Exactly. And so we can ship whatever we want, and that's a massive amount of leverage for us. So there's some supplier power you see a lot of very valuable businesses just own the customer relationship. And I think that's something that is sort of underexplored from a business strategy perspective. I have been thinking about why that is. And I don't think I really know. Exactly..

"West to southwest Ford fourth highway off interstate twenty and Weatherford. And we're back. We're talking today would dictator intern. And that's actually Dick's first time come down to a whole first hour with this. But he's along the audience deals with Ritz Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram over in Fort Worth. And Jim heartache the general manager there plus this year now, the chairman of the greater metropolitan dealers of Dallas Fort Worth whatever it's called the car dealers, North, Texas. So a story came across my desk this week that I can locked guys flying from L A to Sydney, that's not the part I liked and he's being asked to fill out a survey. And he said the survey was so big would've taken the entire thirteen hour flight to do it. But he talks about how America is being surveyed to death today. It doesn't matter whether it's over hotel room, you go into the dealership for service, if you make a purchase online even hospital emergency rooms like you're doing surveys now on I soon only if you live, but then they would ask you how was your treatment? All that. And the guy makes the point. Why does management of a major corporation think? Answering a survey of specific questions is the same thing as actually talking with people where you'll actually get a much broader view of everything in play without ever answering a survey question and actually want to start with you dick because in your position 'cause you're overseeing all the Chrysler sales. All that stuff. How many times a day? Are you actually talking with customers on your at your dealership somewhere between ten and twenty? Always meeting people. And if there's a problem, how quick can a customer finds you. Well, if I'm close probably within five minutes, I would almost say instantaneously because they're mad enough. They you can hear them. Yeah. We usually don't get too many men on worth. Yeah. It's nothing. Well, when Jim would should go back when you first came out of Arlington because you've been at buzz post, and he came to Fort Worth I came over to meet you. It's first time we met I remember. And I heard about you because I was work right down the street from me for years, but we'd never met. And I said, Jim you're gonna like Fort Worth because everybody in this town knows everybody and. All you have to do is like treat them. Nice. And they're loyal like crazy. Yeah. That's that's the truth. You know, it was very refreshing. You know people. I mean, they they keep their word you could do business on a handshake. I mean, and this is nothing against people Arlington, Dallas. But that business was far more transitory. It was and it knows nothing against that. It's just it was a whole completely different climate in more. Like what I grew up around which was a small town northern Oklahoma. Yeah. Stillwater? Yeah. And I it was a lot more like that. Even though Fort Worth a lot bigger than the Stillwater. But the the people were more like what I grew up with again, you were talking about when you first got there. Right. Traffic patterns were not as big as Arlington. No, not at all. And you called Rick can Leany because record worked at the Ford store in town forever and ever Randy highly used to work together, and I called kind of panicked, and he said, yeah, they don't bring in truckloads busloads customers, but when they show up they tend to buy that's right? Uh-huh. And he said you're going to end up loving. I know it doesn't look that way right now. But just just hang in there and embrace it. And you'll end up calling me. I'm telling me how much you love it. And he was right. I told you every time you sell somebody in Fort Worth that, you know, their name over years time they're gonna to know about twenty of the friends true. I know it really is true. But that goes back to the point the car companies, and I'm not picking on them. But everybody loves these surveys all started with JD powers literally almost forty years ago. And I pointed out his very first customer satisfaction survey. Literally had a I was satisfied or very satisfied rate of eighty five percent launder eighty five percent here. It is forty years later, we've made all these changes to the car business. You know, nobody sewing keys on the roof anymore as if we ever did we did not do that. But some dealers did just not around here. Well, not around here after nineteen sixty. Let's say, but my point is it was like right at eighty five percent. And today. It's right at eighty five percent. And I'm wondering how the car companies are spending these hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars on surveys, and they haven't moved the Mark in forty years in spite of the fact that on the ground were really the people responsible for these customers and we've done lots of things differently. I notice you waiting room when I come to see you Jim has always back there with the service department. Right. I mean, it's a it's a whole different business. But again, I want to almost comparative standardized tests, you know, in schools, it's like, you're you're coaching people to pass the tests, and I'm not sure that you're giving teachers the ability to really teach the student in. Yeah. Well, in my case, I was on teachable. You know, so I I felt sorry for any of my teachers are going to get bonuses based on have MS a student and gun happen. Right. So I mean survey is just that. I mean, I I don't know. I don't know why. That's a great question. I mean, you can find a lot more about people just talking to him in a very nice weather experience in a very nice way. When I would see people come into the dealership with the factory. I can't remember any time in my career, including the very beginning. When Bill Buxton was general manager voles mobile he'd come into Sam idols mobile all the time. He would talk to us sales people, but I've never seen a factory person. Engage with customers just for the sake of engaging with them. Well, I'm not sure that's their scope. I mean in in I've been in this business thirty six years. And I I don't remember any factory people really engaging customers unless it's through like a one eight hundred help line when somebody's got an issue. The it's more the dealer his you know, that we're the face. I mean, we're we're they're doing business were. Well, dick, actually may have the best answer at all. Because when you moved to Texas all those years ago, your wife was working for General Motors. Dick's looking at be funny where. What she was. Absolutely. She had a fairly good job with General Motors. Absolutely. Any regional office and overrun star. Right. How often would she talked to potentially a to onstar users versus looking simply at the surveys of what they thought about the onstar system. Well, unless it was a family member who loved us onstar, generally never she dealt with the dealers sales management teams, and you know, tried to integrate whatever improvements they could make with the dealers themselves. I mean, it was still a fairly new system, but everybody's improving and really they didn't work. Ever talking to customers the onstar people at home office were I mean over the phone through the car, but that's far as God. And that was the closest it's gotten a lot of cases, all the car companies have those eight hundred numbers, right, particularly if you're upset and a lot of cases, they're they're literally hiring high school kids out of D, E classes who scripts I'm not quite sure that's a sign in fact, dick when when there's an issue on a car not saying there is with the Chrysler. But if an issue comes up, how often do you find out about the issue weeks before the car company will even acknowledge it because customers the company and said, hey, I have this little problem. And then it happens in weeks time two or three times. And you know, there's a problem long before the manufacturer picks up on it. Well, we've does that not happen? Yeah. The show up in the service department or call and until it becomes repetitive issue. You know, we generally try nip it in the bud and take care of their needs immediate. Everybody's there for a car. They need something to drive, and we take it from there. And then if becomes a transient issue nationwide, then generally gets the attention to the OEM. Yeah. And meaning the original equipment manufacturers, but what we're dealing with as they have to have a lot of warranty claims actually come in. And then somebody will look at a deal and say, hey, we're having to replace this quite often. But a Cardi little know about it the first week if two or three things go wrong immediately. Yeah. And yet we really don't have access to the car companies necessarily to tell them that. Well, we need their help. I mean, we're partners with them. That's that is what they say, dick. And that was a very nice thing for you to say, I may. I sometimes wonder for the partners. We used to be with the car companies give and take marriage. You know, I was with one of the guys on the show this week, and we were discussing that as we were recording his add in office, but has a particular color on the back wall because that is the particular color that the manufacturer said that back wall house be painted the sidewalls had to be painted a different particular color and the drapery on the upstairs had to be taken down. So you could see that color from the showroom floor. That dad that like a partnership to me, but it's just me you guys much nicer than I am. We're talking today with dictator intern. Who for the most part is who the public talks you when they go out and get Chrysler's over merits in Fort Worth. And Jim heartache the general manager there and now chairman of our Dealers Association here in Texas this year. Well, let me add some on that franchise. I look at all these franchises in most of the time. Yes. Like, the it's the it's the actual business. That's the franchisee that really is the face and speaks with the customer, and that's all it is m answer. That's pretty much. All it is. So I mean, I I. On this show. I have names like Marites, right? How fines? Soule? I mean, I can go right down the list, and it's like the who's who of the car industry people that have been here in Dallas forty and fifty years, they know these names, and they have a reputation behind the name, the car companies would like everything to be like Chrysler Fort Worth of whatever everybody's stores look the same because they want the public to believe there's no fundamental difference in the service. In fact, they can often get the surveys read that there's no fundamental difference. When we kind of know better. I'm proud of the fact of the names that are on this show, and the people been in Dallas fifty years understand it will move to town last week. They may not know. But that's what happened in. And I am too. I'm very proud of that in you know, the dealers you've mentioned are no different than us. I mean, dick, and I both make ourselves very accessible to customers. I know. Well, we we all we all do we we don't I don't screen my calls. None of a screener calls. We take all our calls. We call people back. We we have an open door policy, not just with customers, both employees. I mean, it's and I think the dealers that you're talking about on this show. They are the who's who of the business are they're no different. I I did get tickled though, when I was young pop. I was only about nineteen seventy five March seventy five I was twenty one when I moved to Dallas about to be twenty two nd went to work for Henry butts and from day one I heard from guys because we with Oldsmobile what a prince Dave Ritz was. And I've heard this for like forty years, I'm Jim's office not that long ago gentleman comes and he's talking to Jim. And all that it looks me says, I am Dave. I said Dave who merits forty years later. I finally met Dave Marites in your office. What prince of a guy is he's that way. All the time in I've never known him any different. I mean, he is a literally a role model. So it's it's easy to go to work every day. Yeah. And he had bought Henry butts his place in Arlington. When Henry went to north Dallas only there was an animator meteorology. And I asked about in your. Office. I said I always heard that Henry soul to the McNabb family out of Greenville. And like six months later. You bought it? He said that's not right. It was guy out of New Mexico named Ed. Wallace reverend. I do remember the,.

"Find out more about how that works and. Yours truly, you know, about the the new vehicle that I've been telling you about pro while I have my GM rewards. But I need to know how they work to Julie Heisel. Joining us on the other end of our line director of retail innovation for GM. Good morning. Julie. Morning frank. Thank you for having us. Well, nice to have you with us. So exactly what is GM rewards. Well, Jim rewards is a points based loyalty system where members can earn points for all the things that they need for their vehicles products or services. It could be the onstar subscription you have or it could be taking your vehicle to the dealer for service. And this is our way of telling our owners that we really appreciate them. And it's much more than just at the time of delivery. Then in turn our members can use those points for those same products and services, they love and need. Yeah. Get him down the road. And now, you got points build up, and that that reduces the price and the amount that comes out of your pocket by exactly yeah. So how did the points accumulate then? And what are they worth give me an idea? So members can join at the time they by vehicle or even if they have a current vehicle, whether it be GM or not, and they earn points when they joined, and if you buy a vehicle, you earn a hundred dollars worth of point. So we put those right into your account, and you can use those for excess Sary's or even for a service that's needed on another vehicle in your household and appoint is worth half a penny. And every time you spend money at our dealerships or with our brands beyond a purchase for every dollar. You spend you get six points. So it starts to accumulate pretty quickly. And then you decide down the road where you can best. Put those to use is about a wine. Right. So you earn points. Anywhere with our dealers or us, and you can use those points in again with our dealers or with our brands most interesting to me was what you just said about you. You don't have to have a GM vehicle to to load up the points. You can take another vehicle into a GM dealership have work done, and you get credit for the points on whatever competing vehicle that might be right there there. I read that correctly. You did. And then as customers take their vehicle to the dealership the dealers are very interested in cement that relationship. Not only for the service that the customer may get now, but for other services in the future and eventually potentially another vehicle. Julie what's what's the long range outlook, though, in in the planning for for GM rewards, is it is it to just introduce the General Motors dealerships to more customers who who may not have purchased GM products in the past what what's the goal? Well, that's certainly one goal. But primarily we're doing it to tell our owners how important they are to us. And it's our way to say, thank you. We just hit a million members last quarter and programs only been up for eight months and having strong owner loyalty is very important to GM. And in fact, just last week GM won the top loyalty award for the fourth year in a row as awarded by IHS market for the top automaker. So it is very important. For us to introduce new customers to the family, but it is even more important for us to retain customers in the GM family. Yeah. Good point out that you know, because if you can retain those customers you've got to come back over and over and over again, and if you're giving them great service and good rewards like that. And you know, an incentive to come back. It's good for you too. So you know, it it it's a double edged sword. It works both ways. And it's it's good for both sides, which is terrific. But it's been the reaction from from customers to it. Customers are very excited about it. It it. It's like most loyalty programs where you get something of value, and you can use it. And we've also incorporated some surprising delights. So we give points for your birthday as well. As if you tell us that you're interested, for example in racing. We have a lot of partnerships and sponsorships in racing. And we can men invite you to participate in various events, and what better way to say. We appreciate you. Then giving you something that you really care about that makes a difference in your life. Okay. Before I get too excited here you're talking about inviting me to come watch racing events. Not partaken them. Right. I just wanna be sure. Well, we do have a few opportunities like Cadillac has v racing. That's very limited. But yes for the most part, it is as a spectator dot got it. I was hoping you'd give you the other answer say, no, you're wrong, Frank. We want. That'd be so cool. Well, listen, I it's it's often running with GM rewards. What's the response been like it'd be getting a lot of Pete back yet? Yes, customers are thrilled with it. The dealers are very excited because the first response to the customer is is to come back to the dealership, and that's really critical helps our customers helps our dealers, and it certainly helps up Julie thanks for stopping by and spending some time and explaining to everybody this morning. All automakers are looking for ways to draw people into the showrooms, give them incentives to buy their vehicles and GM reward. Certainly sounds like a great step in that direction. Thanks for joining us. Thank.

"Well, let's actually find out what's going on, especially in children. There's that there's panda's which is a brain encephalitis caused by strip that has children are susceptible to which can cause like immediate behavioral changes. Right. I wonder if there was something like a strip outbreak. I think it was just fragile masculinity, but what possibly. Just to just depend fear of witching Zack. Aki wants to know is antibiotic resistance, a critical issue, heck yes. Okay. Oh, I can say hell hell yet even say yes. We don't cuss on our guests. So this is new the microphone? Fuck. Yes. It's a huge problem. Oh my God. It is. It is one of the scariest problems for sure. Like antibiotic-resistant strep in or staff in hospitals is massively huge antibiotic resistant. My dad got sepsis from antibiotic resistant UTI infection. It was awful antibiotic resistant to rookie Lucy's is Terry. XT RTD. It's what they call it. And what about Mercer Mercer. Exactly. That's staphylococcus aureus in. So now the the fixed that is stopped taking antibiotics, medium viruses. Yeah. So there's definitely like the the doctors shouldn't be prescribing antibiotics for things that they don't know our bacterial. But a large part of the problem too is like the agriculture industry and they're, they use antibiotics profile prophylactically. So we're just going to give all of our cows antibiotics so they don't get sick. And so- prophylactic antibiotic uses a huge issue a well that is helped driving it. So it's not. It's kind of the same thing when you talk about like, how can we solve climate change or stop putting trash everywhere like, yes, we have personal responsibilities, but there's also this systemic responsibility that is not being addressed as much. Right. So on the personal side of things, if you are prescribed antibiotic for something, take the entire course of it, don't don't save a few pills for own case. Next time I have us do that lady that people will do that all the time. Don't do that. Take. Every single pill because that what that does is it basically when you take, let's say, three quarters of your antibiotics, you're gonna kill. This is very basic, but three quarters of the bacteria in your body and your your, your body will fight off the rest of it, but those or it might just be selecting the ones that are resistant. Strongest ones are like, yeah. Oh my God. It's the people who are left at your party at like two in the morning and the worst people go home. Oh, yeah, exactly. I should've left forever ago. Yeah. Yeah. So, okay. So keep kicking him out. It's funny in our healthcare system is such a beautiful thing that I have friends who are like actors who don't have health insurance who are like, oh, if I get strep throat, I just order fish antibiotics online, and you're like, oh, America. You use them in fish tanks, but you can also take him for like, yes, people do that. Like there are whole read at sub threat. Like it's about like this is such a good learning extreme like veterinary antibiotics that you can get for your dogs and cats that are China remind. Yep, don't Don't do do it. it. Well, okay.

And do you think there's a possibility that the Lone Star take is Evelyn's way of helping with global warming moving to a red meat produced society? Oh, that's a fun thing to think about, but it's that's just not how evolution works, but you can answer this. Take one. I actually do love every time. It's always brought up as like, oh, every time that someone says, oh, the red meat allergy from onstar. They're like, maybe that's a and I'm like, well, yeah, it's kind of a good thing. I mean, it could be a good thing. So the almost dying part and not a good plus I have. I have some anecdotal evidence, not not personally, but so it seems that the strength of the allergy varies depending on who you are and it might depend on what tick bit you, but some people, it seems to be last decades or even a lifetime. And anytime they re expose themselves from red meat, it's a really bad reaction like NFL axis at cetera..
