Google Photos Removed Unlimited Storage for Free
"June first today google photos. Free storage is over so that ship has sailed who rolled out the voters. Austin was it osterloh or was it the other guy. Who's the guy who was really excited about google photos. What was that guy's name remember. Was right right around google plus. Yeah no this was was it and notre maybe they say i can't remember trying to flex my google right now but yeah. Yeah yeah anyway. So let's maybe find that while talking about. But i think it was victim because writer runtime a google plus and google photos and it was great and it all worked together and all this stuff and a big part of it was that it was free. And as part of it being free you got. You got free high-quality uploads able to upload stuff at full res- and store there that's over so no more free high-quality uploads for most users upload begin to count against your google account storage. So those of you. Who if you look at the bottom left of your g mail and you see how much percentage storage you've taken up on. Google photos will count towards that and photos uploaded to your library prior to that today. Do not count against that quota only for new images going forward so there's not like retroactive billing or anything like that it just like this is the brave new world. You've got storage quota for google. That is g mail. G dr google photos all under one roof and if you need to expand that storage guess what you can pay like. Everybody else does so does this does this change. How much mu love google photos for you. Either view because google photos is one of those. Like right is one of those gems Yeah i consider it. Definitely one of the premium. Premier google services. I mean it's definitely one of the ones that i've used the most and valued the most.

"Say that. About two percent of the population lives in areas that they expect to be better off under warmer temperatures versus fifty percent in places that are set to be clearly worse off. And if you look at their maps. I mean particularly in mercator projections but even in better maps at this kind of far. Northern areas are not small. It's just that nobody lives in and so then a big question about adjustment has to do with. How much can people who've you other do. This presented as like climate change will lead to mass migration which is bad because people don't like immigrants. This is sort of a different way around it. Which is that. Climate change creates a very serious A bigger problem for people than for spaces and so if you could reallocate the people to different places you greatly mitigate the harms and then there's a lot of math about they put this migration frictions which is not how immigration policy works exactly But i guess it's h is a stylized bottle. It's like the harder you make it. To mu of climate change becomes much much much more costly because they're saying that like the the impact on productivity in brazil for example is incredibly severe. They predict a sixty percent. Fall in productivity related to to a baseline scenario there Is like a like a ton Whereas canada is mostly better off. The united states and japan are kind of similar and so if more people can can move. You know that's really good. I mean just like historically right like if everybody lived in the tundra like that would be terrible but like the they don't people historically have tried to locate themselves in places where the climate is congenial But there's a lot of issues in the way of that right. I mean what. I actually i mean. Of course it's stylized to talk about like raising the marginal cost of migration but it is at least an effort to talk about two important Truths in in research around the effects of climate change which is one like human beings have agency and can you know respond to changes in their environment and can try to adapt. It's easy to To hear that kind of think about the extreme geo engineering proposals or things like that like you know if we just if we just science our way through we can totally do an end run around to the worst impacts of climate change because we're humans and we were really really smart not necessarily at that level but even at the level of like if you are an individual in a place that is being threatened by sea level rise you have the opportunity to move elsewhere in the country to build a taller house cetera. For i appreciate that they first of all like look at that and then acknowledged that those human choices are themselves constrained in addition to barriers to migration they're talking about barriers to trade into innovation. Which you know to other things that you can think of is adaptation strategies but which also are at national and international organizations. Do have lovers to make those harder or easier and so if you think about okay you know tariffs potential way that the that response to climate change would be you know would would be constrained because changes in global trading patterns so that you're no longer you know looking to get your coffee from lake. The guatemalan highlands because they don't produce coffee there anymore because the because the combination of temperature and soil is no longer conducive to it like. If that were one hundred percent friction lists shift you would see a lower overall cost of climate change than you would if you know. Your trade regime was built. Assuming you're always going to be getting your coffee from guatemala. Into eternity and any attempt to import coffee from elsewhere rain you up against a a massive tariffs and quotas. So it's you know. This is all very speculative on their part but it is at least a stylized effort to think about human agency and in future climate change adaptation both of the kind of individual level and the level of how our national and international bodies facilitating or getting in the way of the human response. The the individual humans efforts to survive and thrive in unequally warming unequally threatened world and one thing that struck me about this paper also talk a lot about innovation as a adaptation tactic. And you know they talk about how innovation means that having less innovation means that hotter countries will be less be able to adapt overall have higher costs which also points towards basically investing more in research and development technology. Front as well right. Now to mitigate these other things and one thing that kinda jump out to me Was also that they pointed out that higher migration costs increased population growth. Basically people stay in the countries where they are in these They were they have higher fertility rates. They tend to have more children in the population on balance will continue to grow I'm not quite sure what they mean. By that though what that means for overhaul energy consumption and the overall emissions growth but i mean certainly i mean i do think that would probably have an impact as well so this could be a sort of a poll reason for decreasing friction for migration that essentially that if we can move people from high fertility rates regions to places where they're lower potentially like we could also you know mitigate impact on the planet the fertility question was was a little bit. I mean it struck me. Just how far removed. From kind of classical malthusian assumptions about population. This is right because like the you know. If your understanding of population economics is had to learn who mouth. This was a history class. Which is basically where i am like. The assumption is that more vulnerable populations are going to have population. Crashes that like people will in fact lower their fertility in response to greater vulnerability or just will be that like levels of child and infant mortality will be high enough and paper is is that like the is that things won't be so bad the it'll be dealing with national level population crashes like that but that everything we more generally understand about the higher carbon cost of a population will still remain true. So we'll kind of end up in a in the worst possible situation where we continue to. Have you know a human drain on the carrying capacity of the environment. Without having you know in the crude malthusian sense like course correcting ability. That nature is sometimes has. Yeah i mean. I mean i guess the way to sort of describe it right as you think about a country like brazil middle income country today they it can be really hard hit by by climate change but that doesn't mean an Like everybody will perish. It means that brazil will slip to like the living standards of bangladesh short nigeria. Or maybe a nicaragua. Right and then. Countries at those levels of economic development have less education angeles women's autonomy usually higher birth rates. I mean there's a lot of i. This whole paper is like an incredible like jenga of assumptions and modeling. You know like of modeling how different things interact with each other. You get to the end right. And they're like trying to show how a carbon tax impacts this and they're showing that it slows warming allot without necessarily a preventing. It gives you much more time to do these other kinds of adjustments which you know. I think that seems right to me But it is also true that if you chase like the logic of that argument it's like they're modeling. The impact of the tax on the climate and then the impact of that geography and mobility and like. Seventeen other. Saying this is like a footnote somewhere where it's like well. The pace of technological progress also matters app. It's it's very it's difficult problem. I did think that the core point that. Which is that like why this is so bad for people has to do mostly with where people live rather than with the increase in temperature like per se being so bad vitamin because i think he can seem a little counterintuitive right. It's like the temperature swings by much more than four degrees like all the time ransom rooms within a single week in so you know i know people who are not a hundred percent by. Denial lasts but are kind of skeptical. They they they don't quite see what's up right and it really does come down to the fact that the average change is still fairly large and that the population.

"Ways in which you know it can be hard to predict not only what future climate change will look like vet human response in. That's the difference between extreme weather events and like longer term consequences like sea level rise gradual rise in average temperature as opposed to kind of the increase in things lake droughts floods hurricanes. How does the social cost of carbon. And you know which you were saying. I think humor tends to focus more on the on the longer term kind of more gradual impacts. How does that relate to how we kind of think of the costs of climate change in the kind of you know more catastrophic potential impacts. I mean because the social cost of carbon dozen capture. That i mean we. We need to bear that in mind when we use this as the basis for calculation and and the other thing is like yeah the these more extreme impacts the step changes tend to be more regional and an geographically you know disaggregated and so we also need sort of a localized approach as well to measure the changes in the hearts and from climate. Change as well so In addition to the dice model of nordell develop a regional version of this as well called the rice model and so essentially that trying to basically get at that as well just essentially that you know how on a place to place basis how the social cost of carbon will change trying to factor into the these More extreme events vulnerability to these other kinds of changes. The problem is of course that it's really hard to set a more localized cost of carbon. Like the like. We were already having trouble doing this. At an international level if we wanna capture risk across the whole world and aggregated to certain countries but now imagine you know say illinois having a different social cost of carbon versus coastal florida You know how. How do you operate in a country when you're trying to build your energy and economic system and with these different kinds of prices and what kinds of weird incentives that will create. I mean certainly. This is something you can't overlook but like it's complicated. I don't really have a good answer as to how you would actually square the circle. I let's let's take a break and talk about talk about a second paper here. Yep after a whole lot of uncertainty we're finally getting better footing on the road ahead says feel a little more stable in certain about things especially when it comes to home and auto insurance with policy genius. You could be sure you're getting the best price on peace of mind. Ause genius helps you hunt down the best price for your home and auto.

"You do the cost benefit analysis it basically reaches an equilibrium temperature of about three point five degrees celsius warming. Now there are criticisms of just doing the cost benefit analysis at all to begin with that you know when it comes to the environment even with diminishing returns it still worthwhile that you know when we talk about human life. We shouldn't be necessarily pricing it with an economic value but But yeah and even north house. I think himself would probably acknowledged that you know. That's not necessarily the way you would want to do things. This is just basically a starting point for developing a price on carbon developing other policies. Starting today but if you were to again start from the finish line start from about the two degrees of warming is start with that cap and work backwards. You would probably arrive at a much higher. Social cost of carbon probably up to an order of magnitude more like in the four hundred dollar range and so the question is then. How do you square these two And that's really going to be a big policy fight. Essentially you know. And that is the fight between the environmental groups and the economist essentially you know which is what reflects the more feasible thing to do and the more optimal thing that we can actually in the present so i mean models like this obviously like. We're looking at a revision. Know the two sixteen revision of the twenty thirteen model. You know there have been subsequent like estimate since then how you know when nord house and others talked about the idea of this is like a starting point in developing policy. How is that actually worked out so far like you know. They have a bunch of inputs for this model in a bunch of assumptions. They come up with this. You know synthetic estimate of the cost of the social cost of a ton of carbon. How does that then get turned into an input in either kind of technocratic lake think tankeea here is what the us should put as a tax on carbon or indie like actual honest to goodness policy making processes we know it in terms of you know cbo and modeling. Well the important thing you know. Here's also we haven't been doing this for very long. Like the first social cost of carbon calculate by the us government was around two thousand ten so and so the model has had some time to evaluate. But it's still improving. These are all still works in progress. That said i mean we do use the social cost of carbon to do things like calculating the corporate average fuel economy standards basically when we do the economy-wide calculation for how efficient cars and trucks should be we use the social cost of carbon evaluating the open attentional damages from this and essentially how much of a burden financially is worth putting on auto companies today. And so that's one way we can do that You know you can also do this as a basis for developing a price on carbon. Now you don't necessarily want to translate your social cost of carbon to carbon tax because the social cost of carbon is the cost borne by society writ large whereas the carbon taxes what you watch put on polluters right now. There could an argument for setting the carbon tax lower. There could be an argument for sending the carbon tax higher than the social cost of carbon depending on how punitive you want to be in. What other things you wanna capture with it but having that as sort of an anchor point that lets you establish what counts as reasonable level of policy. What level of investment is justified. Now when it comes to things like building seawalls coast retreating or what kinds of homes should be insured or whether we should be a rebuilding in certain areas. Once you understand that these costs are there. Then you can sort of you know. Basically look at a spreadsheet and see whether it's worthwhile or not so you know one of the things you know your your article delves into right is that the cost of differ from from place to place because you know geography varies but then the other thing that that as i understand it keeps boiling. The debate is that emissions are global in their impact in a way that differs from a lot of other sort of pollution. Type thing so that you know if one country reduces its its emissions tech the deca you bear all the costs of whatever regulation you impose but the benefits are like two fused globally. So it seems like if you do as sort of rational analysis like everyone is gonna underage tax under regulator under invest. Whatever it is you're gonna do too little baby. Put it all into seawalls or or something like that and you know how this like globally integrated like like. How should we think about that. I mean that. That's a really difficult. And i think we'll get into that a little bit with some of the other papers we discussed but essentially the us calculates social cost of carbon. It does factor in damages to other countries to an extent One of the changes that the trump administration also made in their social cost of carbon calculation was that they stopped including damages to other countries. In harm's to you know low-lying countries that will be swallowed up by sea level rise and that's part of how they arrived at a much lower number so this is odd so the integrated assessment model does capture that but But but you're right that you know these are very very Divergent depending on geography of countries aren't gonna actually benefit from warming to a limited extent and others are going to suffer a lot worse and a single number is not going to capture that disparity and it tends to easily be overlooked. The other thing that another criticism of this has also just that wall. This does use climate models. It tends to assume presume a sort of a steady increase or steady change in climate. And that's not necessarily going to be the case. This doesn't necessarily capture a potential tipping points. Accelerations step changes. Are things like you know. Extreme weather events that can force large scale Relocations so some of the major changes that could potentially occur due to climate change that could be hugely economically. Devastating are not necessarily factored into this partly because the resolution of the model can't capture that like the physical models are just not good enough to be able to predict what we don't know but it is something worth keeping in mind that there's a fair amount of uncertainty around what the actual value should be and over time. You know we do expect the social cost of carbon to continue to rise. I mean this just seems like a you know if you if you care about policy but in political view right by the you know if you had sort of cozy elite politics right. Everybody could look at this and be like well okay. Objectively like the global costs are surreal. We can't ignore that we. I bet if you asked most Scientists and most people with phd's economics. They would all agree that we should consider the global cost. And then you can have this technocratic right but when you bring it kick it out into the domain of like bare knuckle politics that the trump view that american policy should only consider the impact on americans. Seems like pretty pretty strong and it's I think fortunate of i feel like the biden administration will probably provide this Social cost of carbon calculus along these ways but like probably doesn't want to like have a huge public argument about it. They you know it's much more comfortable to be on the level of like we stand by the science and like they are ignorant jackasses when like part of what standing by the science means here is like standing by like objective cosmopolitanism and the view that lives are worthy insignificant. But i feel like we also keep seeing that like. I is a pretty a pretty good slogan. Yeah and i mean the other thing i would just add to that is just you know even in our own self interest. It makes sense to care about other countries. Because we're an export-driven economy like other countries have to buy or stuff and if there have run out of money building sea walls or evacuating people from the coasts. I mean like we're not. We're going to run out of markets for our stuff and that's going to ripple back to us so it does pay to invest for our own benefit to help protect other countries. I mean i think the kind of the nature of geographic variation something that we're gonna get into a little bit like kind of fundamentally. I think we're we've kind of been in this episode of operating on the assumption that like because everyone knows that climate change is bad. You know or harm future global civilization like you know the idea of carbon having a social cost is a little bit like you know. Okay you can. You can just stipulate that but but what you guys were saying earlier gets to the one of the specific ways in which you know it can be hard to predict not only what future climate change will look like vet human response in. That's the difference between extreme weather events and like longer term consequences like sea level rise gradual rise in average temperature as opposed.
Just when Mets thought they hired the right man, they fired Jared Porter as GM after harassing texts to female
"And is the new york. Mets general manager jared porter. He was one of the rising stars in major league baseball and now he is unemployed. Always good the mets looked like they were on their way. They're reinvesting in the team and now he's unemployed because he was doing some offensive things and this is Interestingly enough like almost five years ago that he did it and now it's come back to haunt him and it's So last month he was hired as the mets. Gm and jared porter was fired for sending sexually explicit uninvited text messages and images to a female reporter in two thousand sixteen when he was still in the cubs. Front-office espn reported late monday. That porter sent dozens of unanswered texts to the woman including a picture of quote an erect naked penis in. Espn said. It obtained a copy of the text history. Many of the messages and photos he said were displayed in the report online. And so new. Mets owner steve cohen terminated porter in my initial. Press conference spoke about the importance of integrity. And i meant it. There should be zero tolerance for this type of behavior. And it's a. It's it's saddens me to think about the woman in question because she was a foreign correspondent who had moved to the us to cover major league baseball. And i guess. She met porter at yankee stadium. They spoke briefly about international baseball. The exchange business cards now the only time they actually ever spoke but then ported starts with texts like text a palooza complimenting her looks inviting her to meet him in different cities that he was traveling to asking. Why are you ignoring me. And then after he sent a lewd picture she had to ignore sixty more messages and then a vote. The vulgar photo that was basically straw that broke camel's back and the woman actually went back to her home country and left her job. That i mean the whole thing is sad but to think that the woman With everything that was done by porter here allegedly that that contributed to her decision to leave journalism altogether and return to her home country at just so sad across the board.
A Big Day For Tech Earnings
"Yesterday was a big day for tech earnings. We got quarterly reports from Apple, Alphabet Amazon facebook and twitter like most tech companies. These five have done well throughout the pandemic. So the results were expected to be good but for the most part, all companies exceeded analysts, expectations, apple posted strong results, but took a hit to iphone sales after supply chain disruptions delayed the release of its own twelve models. Meanwhile, Google's parent company alphabet that it saw growth in its add revenue coming back from its first ever decline in the figure last quarter. Amazon brought in a record ninety, six point, two billion dollars in sales last quarter, even without its annual Prime Day shopping event, which usually holds in July but had to delay this year and CEO Jeff Bezos. said the company's already seeing a surge in early holiday shopping and Q. Four. FACEBOOK's at twelve percent uptick in daily active users from the same period. Last year with more than one point, eight billion people logging in every day. And even though analysts had expected a loss loss twitter surprised by posting a profit but the company saw its smallest increase in daily users since it began reporting the figure. All right I just threw a lot of information. You don't put it in perspective. Here's global checkout are decent dean I'd say the biggest takeaway is that in this pandemic era tech just keeps getting more important. Bigger since stronger, you know there are some exceptions to that but when you look at. How we live and how we work now everything from online sales Amazon to use social media and digital advertising in use of cloud computing, my corporations. It's all become more important at exactly the same time when the fears are at their highest among some people that tech is already too powerful despite the strong results several companies saw some volatility in after hours trading and Jason says, there's still a lot of uncertainty part of it is just how far the stocks have risen already, I mean there have been among the best performers across the market, the big tech stocks for the most part. Again, they're exceptions and so there's I think a lot of questions about how much of her the past present and future performance is. Built into the price already. So I think that's part of it but on the whole, the trend is is has been largely. Up into the right? By the way getting all these earnings reports all at once is typical, but there've been a few factors that play recently. Here's Jason Again. The past two quarters we've had these mega earnings Palooza days with four or five companies all reporting at once I think that's partly a function of the fact that there have been hearings pre the day before in both cases, and so that affects the ability of companies to schedule because obviously their CEO's have to prepare for the hearings and have to prepare for earnings and they don't want to have them same day. It's probably preferable for the companies also that they. ANNOUNCE THEIR Big. Numbers the day after they go in front of. Congressional hearings where the subject has been there outside power, and then of course you might have had some companies would typically report next week but we've got the election. They're concentrated by. Monday of next week. You know all eyes will be on on the election, and clearly there's a lot of questions about how that's going to go and when we'll get the results as well as obviously what the results would be, what that will mean for. The company's broadly speaking the tech sector specifically. So I, think they just would prefer to avoid
Chrome tackles Abusive Ads
"Chrome Fortunately will be getting tough on abusive ads. In a posting on get hub. Google's engineer John. Delaney has spelled out the chromium projects, intentions regarding abusive ads. So. First of all modern web pages are a jungle of stuff. So how does chromium the chromium engine determine? For itself what's an ad and what isn't It comes down to something known as add tagging. Chromium is able to detect some ads and the resources they load in the browser. This enables the browser to measure the size, the performance and the count of ads displayed. To its users, it also allows the browser to intervene on the user's behalf when ads run counter to what they decide is the users interest, for example, using crazy amount of resources engaging in some abusive behavior or whatever. So that add detection infrastructure, they call at tagging and it's not very inspired. It works by matching resource requests against a filter list to determine if they're ad requests and in there in a sample that they've got of some code, they show them you like importing the easy list, which of course, is a well known list that's being maintained by a community of a known domain names that are providing ads. So they said any requests. Matching the filter are tagged as adds further requests and some dom elements such as I frames made on behalf of previously tagged scripts are also tagged as ads by the AD tracker. So it's not just it's as images that match the filter. It's if scripts were coming from a a known add source than the things that are essentially descendents of those scripts would also be tagged as ads, which certainly you'd want to have happen. They said I pray will be marked as an ad I frame. If it's your L. matches the filter list if tagged. Is Involved in the creation of the I frame or if it's parent frame is an ad I frame. So you know you can't get can't sneak out of it by creating a frame within a frame and say look I'm not the original one. The mainframe on a page will never be tagged as an add good. and. Then they said any request made within an ad I frame is considered an ad resource request. So drilling down on this one level. We learned that this sub resource filter loads the filter list, and then perform this url matching of any requests against that list it's distributed. That is the filter list is distributed via the component update, which is just part of the chrome installation. So it's be main, it's being kept current constantly, and the same list and component is also used for blocking ads on abusive sites. And those that violate the better ads standard. they explained that each sub resource request in the render process is processed by the sub resource filter before the request is sent from the browser out. So it's not that it blocks things coming back. It never makes the request in the first place. It just you know denies denies it on the from the the page making the request. Okay so you get ads identified as such. How were they treated differently this is where John, explains what they they call the heavy add intervention. A small fraction of ads on the Web us and John Likes the word egregious will see there's a couple of times and egregious amount of system resources. He says these poorly performance ads whether intentional or not harm the user's browsing experience by making pages slow draining the device's battery and consuming mobile data. He says for those without unlimited plans and then he says, in these egregious cases, the browser can upload the offending adds. To, protect the individuals divide. I'm sorry that browser can unload saying wet the browser can unload the offending adds to protect the individuals device resources. He says, this is a strong intervention that's meant to safeguard the users resources with low risk because unloading and add is unlikely to result in loss of functionality of the pages main content. Is as examples of observed at behavior that are intended to be discouraged. Are Note no surprise adds that mine crypto currency. ADDS that load large poorly compressed into is So just sloppy ads ads that loge large video files before a user gesture. Or adds that perform expensive operations in Java script such as decoding video files or seat. CPU Timing Attacks Yeah we don't want those. So Google notes that is not their intention to discourage any specific ad creative formats such as display video ads. So they're trying to be as agnostic as possible. So the user agent, the Browser will unload ads that US and he says again and agreed amount of network bandwidth or CPU usage. We define reaches as using more of a resource than ninety nine point, nine percent of ads as measured by the browser. That's well, you know. So that sets a very high bar says he and he says only adds that have not been interacted with by the user will be unloaded. And here's what's interesting and this is some tech We've never talked about before that's therefore worth mentioning. All unloaded frames will be notified via an intervention report. That the intervention occurred. This feedback is necessary to help advertisers or their AD technology vendors to identify and fix ads that are triggering this intervention. So first of all, just a little bit a little last word on the classification of ads. He says that's left to the discretion of the user agent. For example, chrome detects ads using what we talked about the ad tagging feature. An advertisement is considered heavy if it has not been clicked on by the user and meets any of the following criteria. It uses the main thread for more than sixty seconds total. The or used the main thread for more than fifteen seconds in any thirty second window. So they they said and parental fifty percent utilization over thirty seconds. Or used more than four megabytes of network bandwidth to load resources. So any of those thresholds get crossed the that the new chrome technology will say, nope and just boot the ad it's you know, sorry, you're a bad. And he said that the thresholds above were inspired by the I. ABC's lean standard that's in caps but chosen to but has chosen by looking at crumbs metrics at the ninety nine point ninth percentile of network and CPU usage in ads so again. Most ads are not gonNa Cross that line but those that do, and there are some bye-bye.
"palooza" Discussed on Real Estate Coaching Radio
"Expire who is a for second we touched on this on the Friday normal podcast because we knew we were coming into expired Palooza weekend, which is even better you know here's the thing. The pricing of the property is so much easier number one. Number two the agent who otherwise would have competed with WHO might be from their center of influence has already failed. Okay. So you don't have that in your way and they probably don't have a plan B with another agent in mind by the way, your biggest competitor when you're calling expires is going to be the previous listing agent and the only reason Mr. Seller listen I appreciate the fact that you're considering listing with your old age. But let me ask you real quick question and guys. You don't have to use this question. I always liked using it. What exactly is your old agent do differently this time that they had already tried the first six months to get your property sold and then say nothing say nothing. and. Then because they've already had that thought and all you're doing basically is putting another thought in their head that maybe they need to lease, look up their alternatives permission to break up with the agent disappointed them for being honest, right? They did they other agent essentially they do feel even if it was best friend, they do feel disappointed and other agent probably was not they got it from social I'm sorry for because their center of influence a past client because they're their friend not because they actually were the most qualified to get the listing they're just the most convenient to get the NSF probably not the most qualified to price it correctly to be competitive. Or to advise them on things like negative feedback. Maybe you know I see this a lot when they're buddies buddy listings you don't tell them. How smells like Cat p? You don't you don't WanNa talk about that with your friend right? You know but somebody else can come in. That's a interested third party. So you've got a better CNA situation on your pricing..

What's the word I'm looking for? Who Shot Up Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida? Killing three and wounding eight. According to a bar evidence on the phone ties this. What's the word I'm looking for to the terrorist group? Al-qaeda mission accomplished right. Well sure but how much easier would have been for the DOJ if apple had you know snuck him in the back way that had bar saying thanks to the great work of the FBI and no thanks to apple? We were able to unlock the individuals phones. The bottom line national security cannot remain in the hands of big corporations who but dollars over lawful access and public safety. The time has come for a legislative solution. The piece from the verge had bar saying Apple's decision has dangerous consequences for the public safety and the national security and is in my judgment unacceptable. Apples desire to provide privacy for its customers is understandable but not at all costs. There is no reason why companies like apple cannot design their consumer products and APPs to allow for court authorized access by law enforcement while maintaining very high standards of data security striking. This balance should not be left to corporate boardrooms in Grip Palooza Twenty Sixteen Magadan Gate. The twenty twenty addition. This is something the DOJ has wanted for years going so far as to sue apple back in two thousand sixteen when the FBI was having trouble breaking into iphone. Used by those. What's the word I'm looking for craven? Cowards who shot up an office in San Bernardino in late twenty fifteen eventually the FBI found a way N and they did this time too but you know had to work for it or spend money on it. Maybe the piece from Apple and CIDER on the issue points out that Rhodium which buys bats and sells exploits to law enforcement and other officials announced last week that it was done buying IOS exploits for a while because it has too many of them. But there Oughta be a law in the opinion of the Department of Justice that makes breaking into iphones like yours. Mine and everyone else's easier not everybody agrees quoting the C net piece tech companies including facebook and Google have argued that the same protection keeps millions of people safe from hackers and criminals and shield political dissidents and oppressive countries experts on encryption of also pointed out that if companies oblige and create lawful access that can only be used in criminal investigations. It would create a vulnerability that hackers could potentially exploit. Sounds like the same soup warmed over to the American civil liberties. Union and Gadget Had A. C. L. U. Senior Staff Attorney Brett Max Kaufmann responding to the comment saying every time there's a traumatic event requiring investigation into digital devices. The Justice Department loudly claims claims. It needs back doors to encryption and then quietly announces and actually found a way to access information without threatening the security and privacy of the entire world. The boy who cried. Wolf has nothing on the Agency. They cried encryption. Of course having been called out specifically apple took umbrage at the DOJ's portrayal was probably the part when G. Bar said no thanks to apple apple insider had apple responding to the DOJ's characterization after expressing in no uncertain terms how devastating and heinous last December's terrorist attack was apple pointed out that it began helping the FBI that day. According to the company statement we provided every piece of information available to US including cloud backups account information and transactional data for multiple accounts and we lent continuous and ongoing technical and investigative support to FBI offices in Jacksonville Pensacola and New York. Over the months. Since on this and many thousands of other cases we continue to work around the clock with the FBI and other investigators who keep Americans safe and bring criminals to justice as a proud American company apple continued. We consider supporting law enforcement. Important work our responsibility. The false claims made about our company or an excuse to weaken encryption and other security measures that protect millions of users and our national security. It is because we take our responsibility to national security so seriously that we do not believe in the creation of a back door one which will make every device vulnerable to bad actors who threaten our national security and the data security our customers. There is no such thing as a back door. Just for the good guy says apple and the American people do not have to choose between weakening encryption and effective investigations.

Creative ways to sell your knowledge without creating a course
"Talking about the creative ways to sell your knowledge without keywords without creating a course because we've seen it. I hope you've seen it. There's a massive shift happening the self education world and if you can identify number one your area of expertise a number to learn how to craft your perfect offer. You are going to be able to go places and I mean we've been watching we've been talking to people. We've been seeing some unbelievably creative ways from our very own students. Joe We're wrapping about this just about fifteen minutes ago. So why don't you share with fire nation? And the screw family a couple of those. Thanks just a quick overview. Because I know we're going to get into it and even deeper way but we're talking online workshops. Virtual workshops in person workshops live events mastermind group. Trainings there really is an abundance of ways to creatively. Sell your knowledge without having to create a course because I've seen it you've seen it. Some people feel really overwhelmed at the idea of creating a course. How do I structure what I wanted to break up my modules? How do I structure my lessons with this process that we're going to be sharing? You don't even have to worry. I'll worry about that at all all you have to do. Is You know. Set An intention to share the knowledge. You do have whether that's your experience. Your Skills Hobby Passion. Something that you're really good at all you have to do is figure out a way to package and sell that and it does not have to be through. A Course Josh. Do WanNA share one that we've seen in our own business. Ns with some of our students. Yeah I would say that sometimes is not always necessary to create a course in fact a lot of people get more value out of luck with Joe. Kind of said. Like more in person workshops like Even like virtual workshops that kind of stuff as opposed to a cost. A lot of people don't end up following through and completing it. And so when you have like these more shorter workshops it's like there's people have committed to show up to a the data that day whatever however long ago spoil and they're gonNA make sure they get older value out of during that time and so one really good example of that is a student allows science. Magnus Magnus is a mandolin. Plays really good Mandolin. Plan by the way you're not on the Mandolin is kind of like A. It's like an either. He's like a cross between a guitar and like a ukulele basically And so when I met Magnus. He started a membership. Saad and the membership side is just people pay monthly. And I think it's about like twenty dollars a month and they paid to like get access to like you know some of these lessons. He does like live car chain within that membership and then I told Magnus I said look. I think it's fantastic. You have this membership. But also I think there's a way you also highest Longa and more indepth virtual workshops. So he's a really good execute and so he went out and he just went out to his audience and he said. Hey WanNa hurt is this virtual workshop. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa teach you guys like these codes on the Mandolin. Over the course of a couple of hours drive and so from that straightaway at eleven people sign up to that virtual workshop and so he's a really good example of someone who's just taken the skill right. He's not he's not like outbid getting paid he's the top Mandolin player in the world. And he's getting paid like millions of dollars. That's not the case Ryan. So we had to create this himself so he took knowledge any. Put it together package it together sci-fi right now in the palm of monthly membership and this incredible virtual workshop. Which he's GonNa he's GonNa do. Rn Arbor again. So I know on a you have some examples to of of some people that you guys have worked with Incisa creating some unique ways of packaging and selling their knowledge to but endo but to button. Quick it's okay you still warthogs is all good. Do you want to build this one thing? That Josh touched on that. I think is so clutch That not a lot of people talk about his with online courses. We all know that course. Completion rates can be pretty abysmal in our space. But what I love about. These virtual workshops and Josh only told the example of Magnus but we also hosted a workshop called ship to six workshop. We just wanted a way to get this content out there and we did not want to create a whole course at this point in our business. We're kind of over creating courses. It's not something that were hell bent on. And but we wanted a way to get this out there and Josh said well I'm just GONNA host virtual workshop and it. Was you know three plus hours but the beauty of that was everyone completed it? Everyone showed her like. We have like ninety. Something percent show operate. Most people stayed to the end which means they consumed the whole thing which means you had the captive attention of people for three hours straight plus and they got the maximum value out of it plus they got replacing all that stuff. They got to ask questions. That just doesn't happen inside an online course. You know what I mean. Most people are like. Oh you know I'll get to it when I have more time or when I have space to actually focus on this and so they shelve it and it sits in their inbox collecting dust. But what I love about these virtual workshops. Is You get real time interaction with these people and you get to teach them your knowledge and you get answered their questions and you get to keep their captive attention ways that you just can't do with that of course. Of course you have to do in your. Pj's as well how you know by the way Joe Button I get to button for a second too because I do want to bring up a point on this topic as we used to have two courses. We used to be running podcasts as parents who flagship course and Webinar on fire and we did webinars fire for a couple of years and then canine looked each other. We're like man. It is so much work running two different courses right now having to updates and all this different stuff we really feel like this is through six and a half years of experience now of running podcasts paradise. If you're GONNA do a course right. You're really capped at once. You're capped at one if you want to do a course right so then even if you do have of course you've got explored different ways. And that's why can't I have been doing things like Porto Palooza having hosting masterminds down here which actually does lead to kate coming in here insurance pretty soon kate. No more buttons are promised. You're up do you even understand the amount of patients that I have. I think we understand it next level. That was okay jinx. You guys can't talk until I'm finished. No I'm just teasing. I'm actually like so anxious to jump any or just because you guys have been saying so many things where I'm like those things like Josh. You made mention of how you know. The the impact on worshiped and stuff. It doesn't have to create like massive millions of dollars right like when you think about the type of business that you want to run and that involves like being in person watching transformations happen within a couple of hours like that is so incredibly powerful and so I mean if you really take a step back and you think like how can I make the biggest impact in the shortest amount of time. We've seen it over and over and over in person. John you mentioned Puerto Palooza. I'm even thinking of like so. We have podcasters paradise rate us. Incredible online courses amazing facebook community. We did a one day workshop on the beginning part of podcast movement. When you're we had a room full of sixty people that signed up for that podcasting workshop and it was so amazing to have people in the room where we're literally walking through stops being able to answer questions lifetime and we were literally just taking the knowledge that we already have around podcasting and getting to share that with people together in a room dot space create so much magic and so much maps of impact for the people who are there. We've seen this with a ton of our students and I'll go back to Porto Palooza again. We've had We've had a couple of repeats. Quarter Palooza the very first year that we hold out mastermind down here in Puerto Rico Travis. Came down and traveled. Travis was talking about S- amazing idea that he had for a podcast about networking how to build your network and he has not only successfully built that podcast and a community around it. But he's now branched out into hosting in-person mastermind. I think it was like a year and a half ago and Travis got a couple of handfuls of people to join him for an IM- person mastermind John in Bali where he created this platform this space for people to come together to talk about different ideas that they want to implement in their business how to up their networking game. How you know what honestly sometimes as just about giving people exactly that space because when you're at home and you're like diving into all these different projects and life is happening. Of course every single day giving people the space where they can kind of disconnect from that in order to really reconnect with their business and their mission and our vision that can be so super powerful too so Chavez is not only not mastermind down in Bali he continues to create new masterminds where he picks different spots around the world to bring people together for these in person events he has other in person masterminds where he does a build your network dynasty mastermind where he helps people learn how to connect with people how to you know get the heroes in the mentors in their lives like into their world in a way that they can then take that and go impact other people. I mean John You talk about the ripple effect all the time and dot is just the beauty of something like this when you take the knowledge that you already have share it with a group of people and either a virtual or impersonal setting. Then you equip those people to go teach that to other people too. Yeah can I jump in here is while I wanNA share another really good example because what I what I really want to get across here? Is that? It's actually really easy to get going with this as well right like you know. Magnus for example. He decided Youtube Channel. I'm playing songs on the Mandolin. And people started following him and they were like teach me how to play and he was like okay. Cool he is how to play and then he is much. It cost to join ride and other good example. That is Caitlin and Jessica There were they were teaches than Ilunga teach anymore because they're earning a lot more from their knowledge business but they were literary teaches and so during the summer break on and if you guys noticed teachers don't really get paid a lot and over the summer break. They don't get paid at all and so they would put on these In person workshops with teaches and they would teach them essentially like how to teach their kids literary class writing like writing and stuff like that and so that was how they first got started and it was great for them like they just bought in like ten fifteen twenty different teaches at a time that would high like one hundred dollars two hundred dollars like bay there and they would teach them and then from there. That will like wow like. I wonder if we can take this on the Internet on if you can take this on the road and really really exploited and like they just launched a program Earlier this year off and they made like a one hundred. Fifteen thousand dollars Where they're selling like a program to teaches online is actually really incredible. What's happening sound lesson plans so lesson plan? Yeah it's just so or another couple that comes to mind yakult Serena from the grape unknown and they host virtual wine tastings like. There's just so much that is a grave
"palooza" Discussed on Motley Fool Money
"Couple more earning stories pay pals fourth quarter quarter profits came in higher than expected but shares. Were flat this week Jason Executing at paypal. look at the money they're spending on acquisitions and yeah. I get why. That has an effect on their garden. Sure I think it was interesting to see. The market's reaction right. After the release the stock was down six seven percent but he came back and I actually think finished positive On on on the day one thing. That's very clear after going through their call is the focus that this management team has on incorporating their solutions networks. All over the world would really big partners in. I think that matters a lot particularly because mobile which is now forty. Four percent of total painted team at volume. A mobile is a big part of why their value add in a lot of these networks. I'm GonNa talk about these networks. I mean you talk about how the factor cozying up with China's Union Bay. I I mean there are one hundred thirty million cards alone. Issued outside of mainland China in Union pays now except the by over twenty eight million merchants across the globe saddling Mocatta Lebron. I mean there's just just a lot of partnerships that they're forming obviously the honey acquisition Is is appointed focus that they mentioned that quite a number of times in the call. And this really is about about jockeying for an earlier position. The life of the consumers commerce transaction. And that's fine that makes sense. I mean pay pal for all intents and purposes to this point. It's just been a payment solution. They want to become more. You know they WANNA be commerce solution and so you're going to see them integrate that honey technology in to pay pal into then Mo I suspect that will over time boost the business. They're talking about the honey. Acquisition we'll be accretive to earnings in twenty twenty one so yeah it's easy to be a little bit concerned. Perhaps in the short run but when you look at some of the numbers are chalking up total payment volume was up twenty two percent for the quarter then mo volume was up fifty six percent to twenty nine billion with one hundred and two billion dollars for the year going through that network. Now I mean this is a business doing a lot of really good things I think he got to hang onto these shares. Well it's also a great example of what you can accomplish when you make things easy for people when you think about pay pal itself and also then no those are two platforms that are incredibly. I usually use results tell you I was on was driving my daughter to school Friday warning and she needed six dollars for p. e. thing they're doing bowling and I'm like all right six the bucks. I'm scrounging around trying to find six dollars. I've got no cash because I've got no kids and I'm like is there not a pay pal. They're not showing no. I mean you got people get with the program these platforms exist to make our lives easier so use them last week show we talked about. IBM's latest earnings report art. Ibm Back in the headlines. This week with the news. The CEO Ginny Rometty is stepping down. She will stay on executive chairman through the end of the year. But Arvin Krishna Richner becomes the new. CEO Ibm Stock Up. Five percent. On this news Ron. What do we know about this guy? We know that last week you asked me if the stock would benefit from I'm from Johnny leaving and I wasn't so sure but you you very kershaw regard slasher on This does actually make perfect percents. It seems like it was time to go for her to go. It seems like it's time for new management Arvind Krishna is the vice president for cloud and cognitive software. He was the principal the architect of the company's acquisition red hat which is basically the future of IBM at least they're hoping it is the future of IBM. That's where all the growth is coming. That's they're kind of pivot to the cloud Very much like a Microsoft did One section the Della took took the reigns. It will be interesting to see if they can pull off a Microsoft Christoph kind of a turnaround James Whitehurst the CEO of Red Hat will step in. And we'll take over as the IBM president. So you really see a doubling down here of management men and investments in this cloud infrastructure business Listen the stocks ten times if they can do anything even remotely close to. What Microsoft did the stock is extremely dreamily cheap? But I'm not so sure they can the interesting separation or or the creation of that president title with Jim. Whitehurst taking over. I think that's very interesting and Good sign for where or they're going to put a lot of their emphasis because they have to mean. Sales are down of the past. Few years the stocks clearly underperformed the likes of their other large-cap cap Brethren so the invigoration of having this change in the leadership level and bringing in Jim as the President I think is a good sign for IBM shareholder. So we have a new. CEO at IBM we have a new CEO at Wellsfargo. Why the questions at the Berkshire hathaway annual meeting particularly interesting this and they just unloaded loaded the newspapers? You saw that right so that that is. That's I mean it's another interesting point. Berkshire I mean starting to see some cracks. Well not cracks. Maybe but maybe they're just kinda shoring orange things up for the inevitable transition slash more apple buying Atari known for its video games announced this week is getting into the hotel business. Atari announced a deal to build video game themed hotels in eight cities across America starting with Phoenix groundbreaking. Teaching takes place later this year with an eye towards opening the first hotel in twenty twenty two. Am I the only one at this table who thinks this could actually work. Maybe yeah I think there's enough nostalgie here for for it to work. I mean I. I'm not a big Gamer by today's standards. But these are the games that really resonate with meat. I can actually see having fun and just to be clear for longtime listeners. This is not a situation like we talked about previously with Taco Bell having a Taco Bell Themed Hotel and resort for a couple of weeks. No this is going to be a free standing ongoing business so it's not nineteen eighties video game technology. They're GONNA have updated technology in in their hotels and it will appeal to people who are into gaming now folks younger than us. Don't even know what Atari is. So I'm not sh- I don't know the combination of that brand name and now new technologies. I Dunno sounds like a lot of yarn. Ar Stuff there and we don't jump in for you know an AR VR Donkey Kong. That'd be cool real quick. Though to the article I read your by Christopher Livingston. He concluded included within. Remember if you're electrons room key doesn't work try pulling it out and blowing on it now. If you just really read that really quick you think what the hell is he talking about. But do you guys remember. I 'cause I got this. You remember the Atari Machines de the dust out of it to get it to work. I was like lever. Got Chris well and just one more reason. I think this could work. And this is from the Atari press release. Select hotels will also feature state of the art venues and studios to accommodate Eh East sports events. Sports Gamers. I don't know this this could work for them all right. Let's get to the stocks on our radar. Our man behind the glass seabright Zebra was GonNa hit you with a question wrong gross. You're up first. What are you looking at this week? A company I'm looking at it as a potential recommendation for our total income services Walker Dunlop lab. WD PROVIDER OF COMMERCIAL real estate financial services in the US primary focus on multifamily lending one of the top originators of multifamily home mortgages and they also have a ninety billion dollar mortgage servicing portfolio nine years since its IPO wondering dunlap revenue expanded at an annualized rate of twenty five percent percent still led by members of the founding family that founded at eighty years ago. Willie Walker the grandson of one of the founders owns. Nearly six percent of the company they started paying the dividend in two thousand eighteen and the yield said about one point eight percent. Steve Question About Walker. Dunlop isn't just a total commodity. Play mean everyone does mortgages what wipe walk around a lot. Well they have a great reputation. Size size matters here Scale matters in terms of profitability And but but you're right the cushman and Wakefield Cbre Marcus in mill chop all very large companies. That well eat as well each competing for for that mortgage Jason knows. What are you looking at? Oh we've covered visa. We've covered pay pal. Square aware. Hasn't announced earnings yet. MasterCard dip stick with Mastercard Kennedy Without War on cash theme here Ticker is is m a reported a good quarter recently gross dollar volume up twelve percent cross-border up sixteen percent kind of kind of thrown at the visa. There I think But really this was like this was a racist peanut Butter Cup moment here here recently for me and you remember the commercials were like you know the the to the to collide chocolate falls into the peanut butter. So did you read recently. That MasterCard is rolling out in augmented mentioned reality APP for their benefits program. I mean I immediately thought. Oh my word. I actually have the opportunity to get mastercard into the. My world's worlds are colliding. Chris is very exciting decision. Going to be rolling out in q two on IOS and then a little bit further down the road for android and whatnot. I I just think he was is a clever engaging. Play to bring people more into the benefits that they get from these cards. I wouldn't be surprised to see other car providers of mimic this down the line. But I'm really excited to see how this looks in a couple of years. You know where you can use that card. Where an Atari Hotel? Steve Question about. Mastercard does a MasterCard Carter visa for that matter need to do a better job providing me the tangible benefits like I don't feel like there's a benefit of owning a mastercard versus visa credit card. What what's the benefit? I actually totally agree. I think they do need to do a better job of that. Anything that is that is part of the point behind. This APP is figuring out new ways to engage with cardholders Based on the tools that we had a date obviously the smartphone. Being the most obvious choice. Everyone has one I I do think this is going to be a way to to create engagement. Make you more aware of the benefits deficient. You have so that you can actually put them to good use and he cross when you looking at Chris. I'm looking at Pinterest. A recent recommendation of both Tom.

Just about a balking walking and that's mostly Driven by the US internationals a bigger opportunity for them.

Well we don't have to end the puns. They're a really really good Jambalaya recipe and I got the the McCormick Cajun seasoning and that stuff is spicy and delicious. So with that said Yeah. It wasn't the sexiest quarter in the world. But it's not the sexiest business in the world. Either right they just keep on doing what they do in. This was one of those steady as she goes quarters. The stock has had a great last twelve months up over thirty five percent. So seeing a little bit of a pullback on these results isn't surprising. Sales grew two percent earnings. Were down a little bit. Part of that was due to some some tax issues but the thirty fourth consecutive year with a dividend increased. He's full year operating cash flow of nine hundred.

It's like something out of a James Bond movie management continues to consider. Acquisitions is a little bolt on or substantial deals but they don't see anything in the pipeline blind right now So we'll we'll keep an eye on that for the year but but I suspect it's going to be just The same old same old for the rest of the year for this company. And that's not a bad thing for investors. I'm probably going to focus on the wrong thing here. But when you say it's like a James Bond lab are you talking about like Q.. Like they have my six like the good guys or like an evil layer kind of lab. Well I didn't see the evil side of it so I'm focusing only on the good stuff but it was just really impressive to see now. I will say a little bit CIS right. They're air keeping some of that stuff under wraps. They wouldn't let us know some of the things they were working on but what we saw. I was really impressed. Shares of starbucks down a bit this week despite the fact that first quarter profits offers came in higher than expected and global comps for starbucks. Look pretty good to really Nice quarter for starbucks. Unfortunately the corona virus situation over in China's Kenya Kenya lots of the headlines and there were a lot of questions on the call about this. They have about forty three hundred stores in China that was up sixteen percent for the quarter but they announced the close rose more than half of them During this time now some of that was because of the China New Year but obviously the corona virus situation in China the quickly evolving situation that they are watching very closely is affecting investor sentiment but the quarter was really nice. Revenues were up seven percent U. S. nine percent driven by that com- growth. Chris as you mentioned up six percent three percent from the pricing and two percent on the volume side around you in about their China three percent on the COMP growth so really starbucks continuing to do really well driving their mobile business driving their mobile memberships in the mobile ordering driving. A lot of the growth for starbucks so overall stock is down a a little bit on on that news. We'll see how that all plays out but the company itself getting done Let's talk about this for a second because starbucks is not the the only US consumer brand Over in China that is dealing with this. We saw a similar reports out of companies like McDonald's which we'll talk about the second yum brands Google in terms of their employees in terms of the potential customer base and that sort of thing This really seems like one of those time whereas you said Andy. It's a quickly evolving situation. But I think for us as investors more so than usual now now is the time to pay attention to how are companies are communicating As a starbucks shareholder. I was happy about the way that they communicated the results assaults here and also what's going on in China even going so far as to say look as soon as we can update the guidance for the current quarter. We're going to do that but at this point. We don't really have any more information than we've already shared a good point Chris. They suspended their guidance. They were GONNA updated. They had said that they expected to increase their operating margins. A little bit in Busan Superior Guidance but they decided to withhold that until they saw what was going or learn more about. What's going on with this situation? China it's ten to thirteen percent of their overall sales But on the margin that's impactful so and obviously just the health concerns for the people who work there so so I liked the way they communicated. I'm glad they did that way. Well also sales that they're not going to get back. This is not you know An auto dealership. Where if you don't buy your car right now but maybe you buy next month? The still the sale of the car just gets delayed delayed a little bit once. The stores are reopened in the province for starbucks. It's not like people are going to be tripling on the amount of coffee they buy right now. That's but but hopefully hopefully obviously all the so much of the work they've done inside of China on the operating fund A brand they've built so powerful into China and with their consumers will allow allow them to be able to The stores at least be able to return to some growth they had before the The virus hit. They're really good about pulling those levers. Though I mean that treat receive for example. I mean you don't think they can get those sales back. They may not get them all back but they can get some of 'em back with things like the treat received one not. I mean they just are very very good about that. Ah Let's call it engagement right. I mean they just. They can stoke sales that they lost McDonald's doing a little bit better Fourth quarter profits higher than expected and shares of McDonald's up three percent at this week run. Nice to see Mickey D's rebounding a bit rough second half of twenty nineteen but since November a bit of a rebound on the stock. They'd beat expectations here. Top line was strong global global comparable sales up five point nine percent. That's the highest in more than ten years strengthen both the international and the US segments are really good to see. McDonald's has has been very very focused on investing technology both consumer facing and in the restaurants and let's face it they really had to so they have self ordering kiosks Mobile Ordering Delivery Partnership ownership with Uber Eats Technology both in the stores and the drive through to get people through quicker and upsell people into other products based on the time of the day. The weather a really interesting things going on at McDonalds so far it appears to be bearing fruit. They've got to continue. It's not inexpensive to build all these things but I like what they're doing well and give them credit because In addition to everything else in the past quarter They changed. CEO's very suddenly day very suddenly had to obviously Steve easterbrook left Quickly Lee and Chris Kempson Ski. I believe it's pronounced took the helm All indications are that he will continue what easterbrook had started in terms of the technological logical investments. And hopefully we'll see Sales continue to benefit from it doubling down on the chicken sandwich speaking of chickens. Ron Gross. Sir Someone I enjoy following on twitter for a number of reasons one of which is he doesn't tweet very often but you did tweet a couple of weeks ago. You tested did the Popeye's chicken sandwich. It's like if you're listening to it. Seems like you're you're not a fan of that. It was crunchy. It was greasy and it did not have a lot of flavor ever now. I don't like mayonnaise so that could be the problem. But if the whole thing relies on mayonnaise than Blab. Because you know what Chick-fil-a doesn't have any mayonnaise and it still delicious so it should people on twitter like myself. Expect a similar review of McDonald's chicken sandwich at some point if the hype is there yes otherwise. No what the hype for your twitter feed you know from the hype is so big. I had had to see for myself up next. We've got a couple more headlines than few stocks on our radar. Stay right here. You're you're listening to Motley Fool Motley. Fool Money Chris Sale in studio with Jason Moser. Andy Cross US and Ron Gross. Hey if you're just starting out or you know someone who is.
"palooza" Discussed on Motley Fool Money
"Senior analyst Jason Measure and Cross and Ron Gross CONC- was always gentlemen earnings Palooza. We have so many earning stories stories. We don't even have a guest. Sorry Ron but as always we do have a few stocks on our radar. We're going to begin with Amazon getting back into club club. Trillion Amazon's fourth quarter profits blew away Wall Street's expectations on Friday Amazon stock had best day in over a year pushing the company company over the trillion dollar market Cap Jason. Yeah I mean a very impressive holiday quarter not surprising. We certainly sit here and riff on concerns regarding shipping and costs. It's as bears to do. We are not going to do that though Chris because they think they they are valid concerns but take a back seat to all of the positives that the company continues to bring in. You know we talk a lot about Amazon web services in the importance of that side of the business in just so that listeners. UNDERSTAND WHY WE HARP on that every quarter if if you look at the actual quarter's results Amazon's North American segment generated one point nine billion dollars and operating profit on fifty three point seven billion dollars in sales the AWS segment generated two point six billion dollars operating profit on just ten billion dollars in sales. So you can see how profitable that side of the businesses. Why it's so important in in why we continue to focus on it? There's a really great results now not gonna be nothing but but roses here because we we can certainly flip it over and look at their operate margin there was down more than three percentage points from a year ago and that is investing into that to that infrastructure that makes perfect sense but they continue to grow the customer customer base their Fascinating to see that they now have more than one hundred and fifty million paid prime members now globally and that really is yes. That's what we've been talking about for so many years right. That's that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. You just keep growing that membership base and they can do all sorts of things with his business in international is coming coming along that will click in the profitability At some point down the road but given the success in North America in aws rocking to worry about that too much right now. Aws clearly lead the market leader. I love this company I love the stock's performance I don't think. AWS increases market share. Going forward though I think competition is there and if anything they'RE GONNA lose market share so just something to keep an eye on. I think it's a fair point especially given what we've seen with Microsoft results. We'll talk about those later Alphabet obviously a very strong competitors faces worn. IBM coming up on the outside. You talk about them. And it's nice to see him back above the one trillion dollar mark. I feel like we're missing. Something when they get back below that now we have those those big behemoth in there too but what. I'm really interested in with Amazon. Continues to be watching the advertising business takeoff they are probably now the third largest one when it comes to compete against facebook and Google are still the the big giants but this new volving opportunity for for Amazon. They're continuing to grow that business. It's one of the fastest asser growing businesses. I think based on what some analysts are saying. That's real exciting evolution of the Amazon Com ecosystem. I think it'll be a nice growth angle for them. Going forward if Amazon did not have the quarter it did. We would probably be leaving the show with apple because all apple did in its first quarter was sell fifty-six billion dollars worth of phones pushing apple stock to another all time high end. That's an awesome number Chris. It was up seven point six percent and that was real. It's really nice to see because there's been a lot of concerns about the about the iphone business and and the sales and will that continue to be a growth angle for the business and clearly. This quarter was a really nice one especially she When thinking about where they were a year ago when the iphone sales were just kind of struggling so iphone continuing to be a really nice part of the business a big driver of why they now have one and a half billion apple devices in circulation? That was up seven percent from a year ago. wearables home accessories. Continue to be a really nice growth part of the Apple Story That's now Ten billion that's was up thirty seven percent in the quarters has a really nice area and can't forget about services to you. Think about APP store arcade. I cloud that was up seventeen percent in the quarter so apple really getting it done across all the divisions my family I purchased four or pairs of air pods in January. And that's because they're each thirty dollars off and I'm wondering is a are. They being forced to be promotional because things are not selling as as they would like at full price or are they cleaning inventory because there's next generations that have come online. Have they said anything about pricing. I didn't see that they're the wearables business. Just by itself was forty four percent so you contributed to that last year order so I didn't see any kind of conversation around that I think the wearables is really an exciting part of where that businesses going. The MAC in the IPAD. Continue to struggle on those continue not to be as the the growth angles to it. So it's really really pushing to those other devices as well as the services section. I mean I think you're seeing also with apple I mean especially in the wearables. They're tinkering with pricing a little bit because they're still relatively we new markets. We've certainly seen all the watch. I mean that that prices come down considerably over earlier versions in air pods. Maybe see right which you would imagine. I mean apple. Apple has been a little bit little bit insulated from that because of that that brand cachet and their pricing power. But Yeah I mean they've they've even had to the pricing on the phone right. I mean you can't price those things to the moon it at some point consumer start pushing back a little bit. Maybe there are running into a little bit of that. I will say their gross margin for the products. I was up a little bit To thirty four point two percent that was up slightly from me. Nice Nice growth in the gross margins on Microsoft's second quarter profits came in much higher than expected. Maybe not fifty six billion. But Ron can I interest you. Thirty seven billion dollars in revenue in the quarter and one point three trillion and market cap. I love this report. Both revenue and expectations profit expectations. -TATIONS revenue fourteen percent at the ten th straight quarter of double digit sales growth. As you're up sixty two percent as we talk about that. Aws Market share sure being pressured Microsoft coming on strong office three sixty five sales a twenty-seven percent that sells to businesses Personal computing as you. You might expect a little lackluster. That's the window surface and xbox business only up two percent but still up what was really nice to see. Is that cloud gross margin as that business scales does the gross margin increases and and that really brings dollars down to the bottom line so you saw operating income for the entire company up thirty five percent and earnings per share up forty percent. These are phenomenal. Growth rates that this company is putting up returned eight point five billion dollars to shareholders and Cherry purchases and dividends companies continuing to really execute under SACHIN. Adela when you look at what Microsoft and apple have done over the past year in terms of their stock performance. It really flies in the face of something we've been told over and over for years about sort of the the law of big numbers and I'm wondering to what what extent you surprised. By the fact that Microsoft is up sixty percent in the past year very surprised I would say when they hit a trillion. I'm like well. They're not going to get to two trillion anytime soon. And how long is a third of the way there for you. It's unbelievable the numbers and and how these numbers compound the billions of dollars of cash flow generation. Agent is so impressive and I'd love to see stocks go up on billions of dollars of cash flow generation rather than seeing stocks. Go up when they're not even profitable apple also. The stock was a lot of multiple multiple expansion. Really cheap like eighteen months ago. Microsoft has been executing on the earnings side not just the revenue side on the earnings size. So now we're starting to see a little bit of that. Come from apple but most of the stock was really multiple expansion of the past eighteen months now around thirty times forward earnings from Microsoft not cheap but if they continue to put up earnings per share numbers of forty forty percent increases maybe reasonable. They're picking up that share and in cloud like you're talking about Azure of the. It's very sticky right. The switching costs with that kind of stuff. They they get get higher as those relationships continue which is I think? You can't discount that when you look at these companies like alphabet and Google Apple and Microsoft. I mean they're just really is is a lot of opportunity there beyond what they grow those businesses on to this point well not every big tech company had a good week facebook shares down despite the fact that fourth quarter the profits and revenue both came in higher than expected. Jason as Mark Zuckerberg has said for a couple of years. Now they are actually spending a lot more money they are I mean they. May they have ninety nine problems. But I'll tell you Chris one they're closing three billion using one of their four big platforms on a monthly basis in two point. Three billion daily. Aley now I mean they can't monetize what's APP and that we could sit here and make fun of them for that and criticize them for that but ultimately it doesn't matter because that let's stop. That deal was mostly stock anyway. So ultimately really shareholders paid for not facebook. The stock is up one hundred eighty percent over the last five years so it just. It doesn't really matter what we're seeing that the core business the core facebook platform is still performing very well and I know there are concerns out there regarding the family average revenue per user being lower than the core app average revenue per user again. I just don't think that matters as much because you have to look beyond. I think the person to person connections on facebook think about the businesses that relying on facebook platform to get out there and grow their one hundred and forty million small businesses that use facebook today they are inextricably tied to facebook and the longer they use the more dependent they become on it now. It's not to say facebook's the only game in town yeah. This is L. Y.. Go shop by that. Are Changing the ECOMMERCE space on their own But I think that facebook is going to continue to be an important part of the value chain for the foreseeable future. I mean I'm not the biggest fan of leadership there. I think they can do things a lot better her. But the business is still ron final cylinders and even the expenses are are bumping up a little bit. That's still okay. Business can can handle it and I talked about the advertising business earlier with Amazon. The Advertising Impressions Ads facebook serves up continues to grow. I think it was up more than thirty.

"And I'm just like what like crazy. I somebody somebody who used to be in my life. I'M NOT GONNA say it was okay but this person is literally I I. I almost laugh at now because it's so ridiculous and the scary thing is people. No no no. This person is literally a pathological liar. That's from my life and literally makes up like sometimes people lie or exaggerate or they take kind of true unlike the bill. It's almost like a half truth but like I know a couple people who literally just lie out of literally thin air is out of nowhere and it's a scary shit in the woods as because you because you don't WanNa fuck with somebody who just makes it may supplies because people don't think people are capable of just making things out of thin air and so the guy that I know he he literally is a pathological liar and anybody that knows him as well as I do. I'm like we laugh about his life and it's like I'm like he has a serious condition because he literally makes things up out of nowhere. Yeah and it's like the craziest thing norm. We catch them all the time when we make fun of them to his face. It's only a secret but unlike you you are about glare it is a real condition. Do you think doc in your opinion Daniel of logical liar. So this is where I feel I have matured in a sense is as much as I hate that that woman. I really hate her. Like a true hate. I don't hate people but I hate her. She only put new. Hey yes truly hate. Yeah there's other people I don't like but I truly hate her but I I also feel like do I genuinely believe that. She thinks what she said that happened. I do yes I think that she she I think she is mentally ill that she believes that things that she tells people. So it's like Oh. She doesn't think she's lying. She really telling the that's what I I don't know that's what I think. I think she thinks that's the truth. So it's like I could argue with fighting about like who are they fighting over over. It was right and with the text message. Who's like and she's like? I did shoot and she's like. Oh yes you did like. She remembers basically accused. Delors of like using Theresa for or like money or fame or something that was crazy or like don't trust Theresa or Oh yes I remember that. Yeah it was basically and Delors and trees have been friends for so long and Delors is is like fucking salted the earth's endorse. I wouldn't fuck and say that but like I remember watching it thinking well. Why would they just make that up out of thin air? But it's like we'll maybe and she was so resolute in it and it was like it's like well it's also like Dolores and Theresa have been friends since they were like young like yeah younger and then Dolores has then on the show. Even when the seasons like Danielle wasn't on like she was always around and Sta like it just doesn't but that if anything dolores if anything you think the ways that Dolores would make me angry that she's nice to everybody in about everybody right that's how she would make me angry when they when my mom was going through all this stuff with leg theresa it's like she would still be all like theresa but then she was like coming to my house for my like gender. Reveal party that we did and stuff like that and like she set up the whole thing. And I'm just like put your fucking hanging out with Theresa. I was getting mad but then again that was my hormones. I call them downsides and our good so. I don't think Dolores would do that you know but I but she is crazy. I really she so so then I put out a tweet saying like if anyone else has. DMZ from her send them my way. I felt that was curious so people started in doing that and so one recently from literally a week ago. Now the story is she had thirteen. herniated discs. Oh God the time I read. It was six and but three of them were you. Oh well now. It's thirteen. So how many of those are you all of that. I don't know I still. Oh Yeah Oh and she needed stitches yet so it went from yes she needed. The lots of stitches pitches. So yeah. It's just crazy how it's changing so I the hair pole than it was. You know I'll read you the whole mess leave then. It was beads than it was as you know her. Scalp hadn't need stitches than it was herniated disk and then her her head hit the pavement. That was a new development. The happened right in twenty twenty So I'm just like why wouldn't that be mentioned at the reunion if the you know what I'm saying it's like but this is the thing I mean I mean I actually think you're right. I think she actually believes that thing that she's saying aim because she is so resolute and that is scary. That's a scary thing to be dealing with. Yeah this episode of taste of Taylor is brought to you by Copari. I've been using COPARI. Actually thirty third yoder it for a while now and now. They're really stepping up their game.

Danielle staub allegedly right now. Not allegedly. It's it is I mean I deal you have to say alleged. Okay protect yourself because somebody somebody like who knows what people can do technologies and we. I think we all know when you're in the public eye that like sometimes the fans loves to stir shit up or take things out of context context and start drama right. I've experienced that from radio. Yeah like I've literally been invites people on different radio shows because something it's like a game of telephone and what are the listeners owners music to start shit or not take these context or not they do. That's all I'll yes. I agree with you so okay. So allegedly on December six twenty nineteen Allegedly Danielle basically said Ashley should tell the whole story. Not The one. She conjured up truth be told I sustained serious injuries. And then she started she did bullet points. Okay okay. Bullet points drove Ashley to school. Every morning after dropping my daughters off at their private schools we went to the by the way her daughter daughter was in the same school as me also not private school but no it was. It was a private school which I don't know why. She's being like at their private school. Is She saying like you guys in school. Yeah yeah she goes she goes she was she being me she would call me. Panicking Jack would slap Ashley for missing the bus. So I'd secretly pick pick her up and drop her off at Depaul Catholic and you will say that no I will say this. I will say this fucking hater. She drove drove me to school. One time had nothing to do with the bus. I don't fully remember the reason why it happened. I think she was over having like coffee with my mom one morning or something thing and look when things were good right is when that happened. That was when I was a junior in high school and after I got my license I drove myself. Seems like a real life drives ashes. School wants yeah and this is what we seriously really she goes. Ashley stayed at my house when her mom threw her out at age. Sixteen first of all I didn't we didn't know Danielle when I was sixteen. So that right there is is like what are you talking about. She's talking about on the show and my mom had kicked me out. But I definitely wasn't staying with Danielle Staub. I was staying with my boyfriend and his family. And that was a very brief thing she said I was wild. She said wildly promiscuous and was caught giving BJ's to boy we caught giving BJ's two boys this way sorry it's all different Screaming wildly promiscuous and was caught giving BJ's to the boys in the locker room. I happen and to be a huge donator at the parish in the parochial school so I had a good relationship with the priest Father Michael and sister and I got her out of trouble all but once because she hit another girl in in the face with her laptop oh assigned like crazy and for the record and all of let's talk about blow jobs for second. Isn't she the one who on national television. Yeah talked about this guy. She was digging in how she would give him the best blowjobs. I cannot like I mean. In my opinion she's wildly promiscuous. It was and we fucking watch at all that. Yeah and like listen. I'm comfortable enough in my sexuality to talk about this. I didn't even have my first kiss until I was seventeen gene so I definitely wasn't caught giving blow jobs at school because I was already tuner. I had braces until I was like a junior in high school and then I was just way too insecurity even do anything thing like that. So again. She's fucking crazy but okay Let me see. And then she said Jacqueline shipped Ashley off to live in Vegas with her dad. My Dad does not live in Vegas. Have Other family in Vegas. My Dad lives in Texas. Okay she I did go to Vegas but anyway she said Such a rebel bowl. Jacqueline claimed Ashley Ashley committed arson and burnt the house down so much more. Quincy send this. I can't uh-huh okay fine. Why why okay? So if you can't tell me who why would she send this to nursery so mystery person was could quote unquote non anonymous. Yeah mystery person was defending Danielle in some comments. So Danielle felt comfortable enough to send this tirade of messages to had this person then the says during do thinks about you. Oh my God I have a question for real. Yes us in like what do you think. Why is she so fixated on you like what happened? Ten years ago that she felt so wrong. Because the thing is you hey people like the opposite of love is indifference right like to not care and trust me. There's somebody in my life. Actually that I hate so much I her hater I hate her beat her and I wish wish bad things and that makes me feel like shit. I mean yeah and she warned me not the way you Danielle have like it actually makes me feel ridiculous about my hate towards this girl but so you know what I mean. It's like someday I hope to get over the. Hey because then she really then it's then I'm really over it. You know the then. I've really moved on because to allow her to get to me. Still like semi semi important to me. I understand why you hate Daniel because it's scary to have somebody tell Lou is about you but why do you think Daniel clearly has such an issue with you still like what did what did Ashley due to yell. That makes not let this go. I genuinely have take a guess I.

When by the Lake seasons like seasonal wine it was like like my story line was basically I never did my homework ever and I went to summer school yet And then I did okay and summer school and I got a car cool so that was fun to put out to the world. I did it you know and twitter was like brand new then. Twitter was like I had like three thousand followers and it was like figures so much everyone one for my fans and.
"palooza" Discussed on The Solid Verbal: Living College Football
"We had Louisville Louisville thirty eight Lawville Mississippi State Twenty eight. We already mentioned that. Jomo got fired After this game but Mikhail cutting through four to seventy nine and two touchdowns he added another eighty one on the ground Louisville stepped on the gas ass in the second half. They got their eighth win of the season. which if you would've said before the season that we'd be talking about an eight win low Ville law goal that would have been held story? That would have been bid craziness. preseason say Eight Win Louisville especially where they were last year but the way that Scott Satterfield. Come in and made such a dramatic and immediate impact on. This program is not to be understated. Louisville could be back in whatever legal context that is Before one very exciting to see them win this ball game. Yeah you know I feel about McKell county man Cunningham. He's full no. I'm good Mississippi state after going up fourteen. Nothing to give up what they did into the fourth quarter thirty one straight. It's it's just a rough watch. If you're I'm sure. Mississippi State Fan we saw Louisville get pushed around by Kentucky on the ground and the bulldogs really not get much going from. I Know Kahlil was hurt. He tried and he was within reach of a record. But you know client not being able to run it at all against this level defense which is not good. This is not a good karnal defense. I think eventually it should be but this is you should be able to score more And good for the cardinals taking advantage of state mistakes and turnovers and everything like that and finish the this season you know. It's the seven and five year with a bowl win. That's how I tend to view these things but it's not unique to too low of I think there is at least going into the early off season and spring in ball every reason to be pretty excited. If you're a loyal fan agree one hundred percent nice win. Four Louisville Thirty eight twenty again in the Music City Bowl L. D. let's Let's talk about the Tony. The Tiger Sun Bowl. Now if we could yet time as I prepare for this recap recap and I'm not making this up. Swear to God okay. It's a windy day here. In eastern Pennsylvania. There is a giant barrel of garbage blowing going across my backyard tie. If that's not a metaphor for this game I don't know what the Hell is Arizona State Twenty Florida State. Fourteen gene eight total turnovers in this football game. That includes six by Florida state. So if you've got the cold sweats it's thinking back to the two thousand eight Sun Bowl. You weren't alone three nothing after one. Quarter nine nothing at half in favor of a s S. U.. The Knowles to their credit came back. They made it fourteen two nine after three quarters but then they gave up fuel goal through a pick six early in the fourth quarter. And that's what did him in did not a not a particularly fun Sun Bowl to watch. Sometimes it's really good when the most extreme Weirdo in your life finds another extreme Weirdo to start a life with and get married or whatever it was nice to have these two offense of lines and case we made offenses is quarantined in the same place during bowl season this was ugly. Yeah what doesn't score doesn't get into the end zone until the very end of the game. Yeah what ten minutes left in the fourth quarter and still look like the clear better team with what James Blackman was throwing out into the universe and the offensive line. Play in this game. I guess good phrase as you finished with a strong recruiting class. There's reason for optimism with Florida state moving forward and Mike Novell era and what they've been able to do recruiting and you know what their offense should look like and what they return on defense but good that we could get these two teams together to have their little party in El Paso and just move for move forward. All Right Gator Bowl Tennessee. twenty-three Indiana twenty two weird game. Here weird closed this game definitely. Let's say because Tennessee scored twice within thirty seconds late in the fourth quarter. They were down twenty two to nine nine they steal this one off the back of a truck and win a twenty three to twenty two score. Tennessee got bad. Jared guarantee no at the start they had opportunities and he just couldn't connect To a takeaway from Tennessee is how excited people should be for Eric Gray who looked sensational on the ground. Like a new era of Tennessee offense We'll see if guarantee no can develop or Tennessee. Goes after somebody in the the transfer portal. This offseason. Who knows what happens there but yeah I thought also the story was Tennessee's defense doing a good enough job against A strong Indian offense losing their offense offensive coordinator in Kaelin to bore back to Fresno State They did a good job against Indiana on the ground. They did a good job against you in the air through the air whatever and still needed everything in the world to come back in this game. So yeah we're Game Fun game strange ending and Good good for the Valls. Who have the pieces? If they can get good quarterback play wherever they should improve upon. What would they seven and five season Tennyson? At the end they should get eight or nine wins next year presumably. You're Jeremy PRUITT. I'm I have a unhealthy amount of optimism. Not a crazy amount a healthy amount. The Red Box bowl. I really hate that. I can't make this joke about Oregon. Yeah where's my rose. Rose Bowl championship hat. Cow Arriving Thirty Five Illinois twenty four touchdown passes for chase gardeners makes you wonder about cal season. What it would have looked like if chase garbage didn't get hurt? I think it would have taken on a much different feel but yeah a good story for Illinois to get to this game and both like Cala great deal going into it not gonNA lie and say I watched a whole lot of this game but my main takeaway is nice win for cal nice cap on the season and really a story of what could have been if their quarterback did not get hurt if their quarterback doesn't get hurt they beat. Asu probably beat Oregon and they definitely BEAT OREGON STATE THEY LOSE TO UTAH THEY LOSE TO SC because they lost both those games demonstrably. Who knows knows where they end up bull wise but yes cal has an had a competent offense if not a pretty good offense balanced offense with chase carvers and let what Chris Brown and the backfield's when everybody was healthy there? And it's a bummer. But you gotTa Get Illinois in the Red Box bowl and beat up Illinois down a number of players players on both sides of the ball but this wasn't a lion I team who was putting a ton of points on teams are completely shutting them down. It was a nice improved story for the lion. I and CAL does a great job on Defense Ivan. Weaver set some records and it was expected I guess would be what I would say. Cal Scoring. Thirty five is new. That's sort of a new sensation to me but I I don't think Illinois could expect much given you know who they are and who they were missing so good for cal Phil Annoy. Hey Hey sometimes. It's just a good story in the Liberty Ball. We had navy twenty two seventeen over case State Fun Weird Game Yeah Weird game very weird game. We had Cincinnati all over Boston College. We all saw this one coming a mile away but thirty. Eight to six in the Birmingham Bowl. Cincinnati wins and Western Kentucky by three over Western Michigan Twenty three to twenty in the First Responder Bowl and Wyoming by twenty one. Thirty eight to seventeen over Georgia state in the oft forgotten Arizona Bull. Yeah let's start there car Invalidate they built the whole thing out of him for Wyoming his sensational both through the air. big-play dude and on the ground goes over two hundred yards Wyoming. We I think we both likes this one in the Nova home loans. That's right Arizona Bal You mentioned what messed Western Michigan Western Kentucky. As good a game as the hilltop has had on offense the job they did in coming back and winning against Levante Bellamy and this western offense western Michigan offense. I thought was was pretty admirable Kansas state did a whole lot of bending but actually didn't break too often against a navy team that ran all over them but navy with that late suffocating. Drive that ends as the clock DOC ID Zero Field Goal Nice Win for them. They have some missed opportunities. Very early on Schuyler Thompson really struggled against this navy defense and Kansas taste really struggled between I guess the twenties against this navy offense so eleven wins Navy after a pretty down two thousand eighteen. I color me impressed. Tie Yeah Color. Me impressed pressure. The the final game you mentioned was what Cincinnati and Boston College. Cincinnati Boston College. Yeah BBC AJ Dylan. Sitting out. They lose they fired their coach without without coordinator It's just not going to happen for BBC but Cincinnati a relatively easy way to get to what they finished with eleven wins. Eleven wins only losing to a playoff team and a new year. Sixteen in Ohio State in Memphis A Nice Complete Win for Cincinnati as they head into next year with a lot of promising young talents I don't think you mentioned Ohio. Nevada Ohio I guess weather's a late comeback effort but they jump out to a pretty big lead here. I think they're up thirty two nine going into to the fourth quarter and the end of Nathan rocks career ends with a win and the end of Frank. Solich and Nathan works time together ends with Frank. Solich being doused post in French fries. Oh Yeah right in in the famous Idaho Potato Bowl To Lane Monster Third Quarter after a sluggish first half F- comfortably beating southern miss and as of recording. I think that those are all the games. Those are all the Games we got two left. We've got the lending Tree Bowl Bowl Louisiana against Miami Ohio again. We talked about that one before Louisiana. A pretty big favourite will have to wait and see if billy napier has ties so that Mississippi state job and then. There's the Big Tamale now next Monday January the thirteenth it is number one. LSU At fourteen you know it is number three Clemson also at fourteen to know. They're playing the championship game in New Orleans so bit of a home crowd for Lsu. I'd say so in the superdome. I'm currently there are five and a half point favorite over clemson over under about sixty nine and one half here is our plan. We're going to preview this game about mid week or so. We can't do it yet because all the fun little props that we like to include as part of the coverage they're not out yet okay so got to give it a few days. What the bookmakers do their thing? So we can have fun with it.
"palooza" Discussed on The Solid Verbal: Living College Football
"Wisconsin certainly had all of the opportunity in this game to put it away and came up short. I want to give credit to Chris Fowler. Yeah I could for a second here if we could take a knee. He worked so hard so hard to make this game. Feel and sound more exciting than it was. That's job it is his job and he did a masterful job of it. Aside the fact that it's the Rose Bowl and there's a beautiful setting as as they pan the southern California sunset He worked so hard to make it. Sound exciting. I loved his quote on Jack. Cohn did you hear this. Let's see here. It says check on I have I have this Zach pulled out quote not flashy but certainly more than a game match. Is that a compliment. What is that? What's the bar for a game manager? Then to Chris Fowler Wisconsin. All all of. Its good this year when they were really on. It was Jack. Cohn taking advantage of great rushing attack. And Quintet See being legitimately the only downfield threat. That Wisconsin has on the Rocinha but Yeah it was. I feel for Wisconsin fans because that offense if Jonathan Taylor is not busting testing things out and it was not an explosive offense even with him as much more efficient than explosive Was Not a fun. Watch was not a fun watch and you know Oregon did a good job Harassing a lot of Wisconsin. And what they're trying to do on offense and swarming to the ball and forcing turnovers but not in terms of offensive football and TV. This was not a remarkable watch fair to say fair to say I love Chris Fowler Good Dollar Oregon in the hunt for new offense coordinator which hopefully can take take things in a more consistent explosive creative direction. Maybe Joe Moorhead who knows would hate it. Sugar Ball Georgia Twenty six. The Baylor bears fourteen a monster game here four freshman wide receiver. George Pickens for Georgia. He was the player of the game because he had twelve grabs for one hundred and seventy five yards and a touchdown so big game for him. Also Nice game for Zamir White who who had ninety two yards and a score on the ground and Jake from doing more Jake frahm things twentieth thirty two hundred and fifty yards passing two touchdowns again n no interceptions had some really nice throws in this game. Really Nice. Diane's that he was just dropping in onto those touchdown passes and outside died of that a really efficient performance route by the Georgia offense. Baylor's offense held mostly in check. Georgia took away the run almost entirely. Yeah something like two point point two yards per carry for the bears offense. They put a lot of the pressure on Charlie brewer and as a result the offense held mostly in check under three hundred yards. Brewer actually got dinged up in the fourth quarter. He wasn't concussed thankfully he was couple of weeks ago but made it through concussion Russian protocol. They took him out of an abundance of caution. Jacob Zeno came in couldn't really get much going and I kind of felt like this game went almost entirely the way we expected it did. Yeah probably I mean. Baylor doesn't score in the first half they take away the ground game they take away. Some of the short passes and for as good as Taylor's been this year it's been because of their defense and that defense can only hold on for so long if they're on the field constantly and Georgia can say look we we know Denzel mims is a threat and they're good enough to be able to take him out as often as possible. Take him away from the offense and Baylor doesn't have counterpunch if Charlie Brewer Denzel mems aren't connecting and Charlie brewers not scrambling for first downs. And they're able to keep them in the pocket and confuse him and take advantage of his mistakes. There's not much baylor can do. Not at this point in their progression under Matt Rule on offense. We'll see what happens in the. I guess he passed concussion protocol. But he's still he's taking these hits and he's leaving names and precaution like I don't know how long this this can go on for Charlie brewer and Baylor at a certain point like just. It's a health concern. It's Helen Weston on a much more positive front Georgia looked very good young. Yeah and they cared so much more. In this game it appeared just with the spirits and what Joie de vivre that they played with that they didn't fully have last last year against Texas in this spot. I thought the offensive line did a lot better job protecting jake fromm. We saw that. That flea flicker workout very strange to see Matt Lucas already prowling prowling the sidelines. Taking over for Sam Pittman as the offensive line coach for Georgia. Whatever he did perhaps in bowl preparation or in keeping the heads? Ads of the offensive lineman on straight especially given the new look offensive. Line that Georgia had given the guys that were sitting out Good job good job. I mean Zamir White Look brand strong ran confidently good for him with all that the health issues he's had in the past. He looks like a future dude for for Georgia D- Andrea Swift is has declared for the NFL draft. So that's a new look and I think you're right to lead off with George Pickens Especially if he can get the sort of mental aspect of football on controlling his temper on the field in check. He is as talented Receiver as the SEC has moving forward for sure for sure and you know what to his credit he. He called all that out. He said you know I've got. I've got some maturing growing. Do and we all do tyler. Don't we all know y'all ain't that the truth man but good game for him a nice story to see him succeed in the way he did get that trophy at the end of the game. Georgia wins the sugarbowl by twelve elsewhere. The Orange Bowl. We had Florida thirty six WCHS Virginia. Twenty eight now look I think there is a tendency to gloss over this one for Florida because they were pretty heavy favorite because they didn't win the East right but five hundred forty nine yards thirty six points that is not insignificant. Because because it wasn't all that long ago we were singing a much much different tune about Florida's offense what they did this year with a backup quarterback for the majority the season having a recalibrate. The Way that Dan Mullen did for my money one of the better stories in college football basically no success on the ground. No Not Bob Michael P Ryan in this game against Virginia. Yes well Michael. P Ron in this game had had a very good very good effort here. One thirty but to your point I think that's entirely accurate. It Yeah No. They struggle to sort of put forth a complete offense this year and they still won games. They still exclusively lost two really good teams in what Lsu Sue in Georgia and took care of business with a backup quarterback who we'd not so blatantly called come- com- throw kyle whatever we call them And he got the job. Done hit a nice season Going into Virginia team. That certainly beat up on defense and has its own questions in terms of how high level they could be. They were in this game the whole time. They were well they were but they weren't like Florida kept him at arm's length for the entire second half they pulled within one score four early in the fourth but then Florida answered quickly and just sort of coasted to victory so they weren't out of it. I don't know if they were ever truly within striking distance. It didn't feel that that way. I mean a six points with what twelve thirteen minutes I know I know I know. It's just not a runaway. Wasn't runaway train. You're right it was the the final. All score is not as Accurate as the comfort with which Florida's seem to pull away from this game but a nice show because bryce perkins has to. Who Do it all for Virginia and continuously did all season long? I mean not necessarily against Clemson but you know this is a good Florida defense that Bryce Perkins Gins was able to find whoever has seized whoever in this game and just at a certain point. He just you couldn't do everything right but I I I liked the performance. I like the season and I liked watching my father-in-law roam across south Florida. Seeing Virginia Fan after Virginia. Fan after asking me. What do Virginia Fan say to Louis? Each other like Texas fans say hook him he would just go up to strangers at tables wearing whose gear and go up to them and say. Hey why who are. Good luck like the mayor ear of Virginia fandom because he likes having met secret in jokes having met your father in law yeah. Didn't he do magic tricks for people at an Italian Alien Restaurant in Chicago. Yeah absolutely loves going up to two strangers tables and just being friendly awesome dude. Yeah love the Guy All Alright Citrus Bowl Alabama thirty five Michigan Sixteen. I like we knew going into this. There were some interesting match to watch and that Michigan had enough talent. I think to offer resistance The question was how much and for how long and that's kind of been the story of coaching against Nick. Saban in this one Michigan played really well for half. They led by two sixteen in fourteen. After two quarters. Yeah ran well ran. Well sure second half more of the same from Alabama. They rip off twenty one unanswered. They win going away mack. Act Jones a really nice game. Three twenty seven and three touchdowns no picks nausea Harris one thirty six in two touchdowns on the ground. Jerry Judy. Virtually virtually unstoppable six for two four and a touchdown through the air It's really just a matter of Alabama has a machine they've got all the talent in the world and it sucks that they lost to to injury but the other parts don't stop working simply because he's not on the field they knew how to recalibrate the game plan. Mack Jones played really well Against good defense and Yeah Alabama. Dan just keeps doing Alabama things. This is very true We've talked about what it takes to beat. Alabama even down Alabama Defense Michigan again was able to find some some success on the ground. Some creative play to as Giles Jackson had a nice day for Michigan. Sort of an all purpose. Type back at a couple of carries in a a few receptions but you need more than shape patterson you need more than you need that fearless guide connecting with tall physical receivers which Michigan has Donovan People's Jones Nico Collins Tree Black. These are talented dudes. But this Michigan offense just wasn't consistent enough from the top to get John and I think you were. We're going in the right direction. Mack Jones is just a good quarterback. I mean he has these incredible weapons in an incredible. I know all the advantages he has but he made plays he made throws. And that's that's all you can really ask for and didn't throw pick and the Alabama war machine is Toko and strong and they opened the game up. With what an eighty five yard touchdown catch Jerry Jones Jerry. Judy and you know we talk about the scores. Misleading what the actual game look like. And I know Alabama pulled away late. That's what good teams do. So it was what twenty one sixteen into the fourth quarter deeper into the fourth quarter Alabama Road Nausea Harris to shore and and it worked out really well for them they got that late. Pick and Alabama in a game where you would understand if they weren't fully motivated against a good Michigan team dug deep and found a way to win at the end very comfortably. It helps to have Alabama's offensive line definitely does but that being said whenever for a backup comes in.
Snap Shares Jump As Returning Users Boost Revenue
"Chris L. Joining me in studio in the heat of earnings. Palooza is the one and only Abby Mellon thanks for being here is my favorite week of the year and it comes four times a year. I love it. We got like seven hundred companies reporting this week things to talk about all the things to talk about and we're not gonNA talk about all of them. Although there are the huge companies reporting that we're just not going to be able to get to we will talk about the latest from Visa and Chapel we gotTa Start Though with snap shares up sixteen percent this morning after snap lost money in the second quarter just just not as much as everyone was expecting them to lose. What do you think when you look at this company? I mean the the stock has just been insane this year. It has basically tripled in twenty nineteen so we'll we'll get to this quarter in a second but when you look at just that shares of snap tripling in basically six months and change does that get you excited or is this one of those things that you look at anything. Oh my God you you can buy that if you want but I'm not <hes> probably more of the ladder not the former but I do think a little bit of that is that snap was punished pretty pretty harshly I would say in their <hes> market debut and so people were kind of taking their hands off of it fell significantly <hes> I think maybe that was a little bit of an overreaction but I do think it's interesting given the environment that we're currently in with large tech and specifically large social media companies sort of the more scrutinized and you're seeing regulators get involved a little bit more than normal. I do think it's very <hes> a little bit counterintuitive. That snap would be doing this well so we've talked before. For about advertisers essentially looking at Google and facebook as must have is snap moving into that category if only for a certain segment segment of the consumer base out there is this is snap now. If you have a product that you're selling and your target market is people thirteen to thirty four years old a snap now an automatic go-to for you. It's interesting you ask that so I think this turnaround <hes> was Spiegel's idea to stop trying to attract all users and really just focus on engaging specifically with that sort of younger demographic base. I think if you look at pinterest it's maybe kind of a similar idea where it's very wean niche in that. It's <hes> majority women <hes> So do you think focusing rather than fighting. That trend is helpful so you saw their average revenue per user increase to a dollar ninety one versus a dollar eighty four it was expected so pretty significant growth in that and I think maybe a little bit of that is that less advertisers are interested but the ones who are have to be there. You mentioned Evan Spiegel the C._E._O.. It is interesting to see and sort of his tenure as he continues to lead this company and I think you're you're probably right. When you look at the the full like one year chart of this stock I mean it's tripled in two thousand nineteen but really over the past twelve months? It's basically up thirty percent. I mean really got hit hard at the end of last year and it does seem like at least part of what we're seeing in. Two Thousand Nineteen

Celia And Hundred Years discussed on Motley Fool Money
"This now a must have for these types of businesses. Like, what is your meatless strategy? I don't know, but I'm getting hungry first. And second of all that I heard also that I ki- is thinking about trying to find a meatless substitute for this week's meatballs at their stores. Yeah. So it is I just considering the the as consumer trends are volving growing more towards healthier options the restaurant companies have to compete. Yeah. I do think the restaurants that offer these types of options other restaurant, you'd think about Celia, for example, where you, you know, you need to go somewhere where there's no gluten involved right in in. There are some restaurants that really cater to that audience. I think if you're a restaurant, and you're catering to all of those audiences that definitely gives you a leg up because you're expanding yourself to really the biggest customer base. And also the customers they'll give you that loyalty, there's there's a trust this established there that I don't think customers will will dismiss so quickly. This has to the future. Whether it's p protein or actually genetically creating animal light products in the laboratory, it's got to be the future. I think of how you men's eat. I can't imagine fifty certainly a hundred years from now that we're still in the business of raising animals Laurie animals and eating animals in the same way that. We are now
Beyond Meat fattens up as shares more than double in IPO
"Thursday beyond meat when public twenty five dollars a share. And while Wall Street has plenty of carnivores clearly has an appetite for the producer of plant based meat substitutes because at the closing bell on Thursday shares of beyond meat closed at more than sixty eight dollars a share Jason what is this? Because this looks like madness. Well, I was gonna say mania. I mean, there is a mania going on right now with these IPO's this was even a bit more than I think any of us expected on certain that the underwriters of Zaia peo- didn't expect this kind of pop either. Because in theory, you're looking at that thing, and they left a lot of money on the table. I mean beyond meat is an interesting business. We took a look through the one with industry, focus, a few months back. It is a massive market opportunity. They're not targeting vegetarians vegans. They're actually targeting the one and a half trillion dollars. Global meat industry thinking folks that eat meat. Maybe we'll look at beyond me as something they could add to their menu. If they're looking to cut back on the meat that they're eating one of the bigger risks with this business today, though, we're not gonna know as much about this until what we see them report at least one or two quarters is there's a very concentrated supply chain right now, they the key ingredient for what they make is p protein. They have a core supplier for that in the ideal with the IPO was to be able to build out that supply chain that's gonna have to happen in order for them to sell more stuff. And they're going to have to sell a whole heck of a lot more stuff to value selling forty times sales today. Same store sales for shake shack came in much higher than expected in the first quarter helped understand what happened here on because the report came out Thursday evening in the stock pup nearly ten percent and then Friday morning, it gave all that back and a little bit more. We'll this ain't pea protein protein protein. Now, I think what happened is that the tough. I number was really strong. But once you delve in you, see that. Margins were actually week which could be trouble for stock price. Ninety four times earnings so revenue up thirty four percent, thirty four new store openings same shack says God, I hate it's It's much. much. Same shack. Sales three point six percent. So those are good numbers right shack level operating profit up twelve and a half percent, but shack level operating profit, by the way, I think is what we used to call four wall contribution. You know, what happens within the four walls of each store those operating margins fail increase promotional costs higher commodity costs higher labor costs. I think that's what we really have to be careful to keep an eye on here. Because if those continue to fall, and there's no way ninety four times earnings can be sustainable.
Facebook's version of privacy still collects plenty of data
"What Facebook actually means when it says privacy from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. We've heard a lot lately about Facebook's big pivot to privacy. In fact, this week's Facebook developer's conference f eight was referred to by some as privacy palooza. But there are different kinds of privacy. Facebook is talking about moving from a big messy news feed into a messaging platform that combines Facebook messenger. What's app and Instagram and lets you chat one on one or with smaller groups instead of broadcasting to so many people it is private in the sense that the messages themselves will be encrypted. So no one can read them. But that does not mean, we're not gonna have some data about you in order to utilize our platform. Caroline Iverson is vice president of Facebook's global marketing solutions, she works with advertisers. And she told me they'll still get data. We know your basic profile information to the extent you fill that out. We might know your name and your birthday and where you're from. And maybe where you went to school or where you work. All of that information can be utilized to help advertisers reach their target audience. But never personally identifiable information. We are giving people the opportunity to tell us whether or not they want Facebook to use their off of Facebook activity. What that is sensually is going to allow people to do is tell Facebook, I do not want you to to utilize any information about a website or an app that I have been to or I'm actually comfortable with you utilizing that information from Uber or lift because by you having that information, I will get a more relevant advertising. Experience just to be super clear, I will still have to go and change those settings. So that I'm not sharing by default. You would have to go in and go to your office book and clear that history. Correct. You would have to go into do that isn't going to be confusing to people if the message from Facebook now is that the company is focused on privacy. When really what you mean is just private messaging and all of the sharing defaults are going to say the same and behavioral economists say we tend to adopt the default is that a bit of a mixed message for people, I think our message is very clear, which is we are going to build messaging services that people will be able to keep their their their messages private. I think we're going to continue to evolve our privacy, tools and controls, and we understand the importance of this to people across the board. And in in every country we operate in. You know, the foundation of trust that we have or we have to earn back in certain places is predicated upon people feeling comfortable that what they do on our platforms is safe and secure. And that is the number one most important strategy of the company. Yes, you're right at the execution of it at know, the next Aleutian is around private messaging. But that does not mean that we're not focused on privacy across the board in. In terms of giving consumers, more control.

It is that's the theatrical experience to me if it's one person. I mean, I think that the experience is the definition of it has changed. It's going to have to that's the world we live. Yeah. And your movie to you you have movie stars. And it has the feeling of kind of like an event movie in some ways from the eighties of the ninety s very sort of mid budget. Hi, Jan rutta, and that we were talking about others movies have disappeared from the Cineplex. And Netflix says obviously making strides to bring a lot of those kinds of movies back. Is there any part of you that will miss the kind of like boxoffice quality around some of this stuff or just sort of the pomp and circumstance that comes with the theatrical. It's to me it's always enjoyable to watch a film in theater or other people are laughing and join in crying, but we live in a world where where the traditional studios have centered much of their energy on Brandon, entertainment and. I'm not judging. That's what they're doing. That's their business model. And I think as you just sorta pointed out they've left behind an enormous narrative entertainment world that many people want and Netflix, God bless them have stepped in. And with great care and love has are fostering Roma. It's my favorite film of the year. Yeah. I I'm going to vote for the award people may not agree. But I feel it is. And I would like to think that when they win the Academy Award. This argument of whether net flicks makes films or not will be put the bed. It's that arguments over they make films they make films that are worthy of any award. That people are giving you this. I'm you know, if Roma wins and other films win, I think in the year two is this not even argument discussion is going to be ancient history, which it should be at this point. There's other aspect of this too. So interesting to me, I feel like there's a new part of the equation with a Netflix movie where I don't know how much of the bird box kind of phenomenon valid, but is it is it relevant to you. If you're movie kind of becomes like a mean or something on the internet that is significant because I feel like one. Felt buzzsaw has a lot of things that people could pull out and could become very memorable moments. But to is that like a new barometer for success in a way, if people have creep are creating content around the story that you've told I certainly I'm aware of the marketing of a film in these days memes. And and things taken from films are part of the marketing, so it's relevant on that way. I would like to see that for Netflix sick. They they entrusted me with some of money. And and and I respect that. And I hope it does. Well for them. I'm not really that interested in it. I hope people like it. I at this point, I'm sort of making movies as much for myself as for other people, and I've sort of turned a corner a little bit for better or worse. Hopefully, I don't stray too far that sounds like a really peaceful place to be in while you know, where it came from. I dive discussed this few times before but I worked on superman lives, which was the debacle of all time. So so epic that they made a documentary about it. I've seen it as fascinating. Right. So I I worked for a year and a half on Soumailla's. And as we getting down the wire they pull the plug two weeks before. A lot of money. But I went into the office. They pull the plug and it was living. My worst nightmare for a year. Like, this was gonna happen. I got my car job down Zanu Monica. I'm sitting on the beach, and I'm just processing everything that just happened over the last year. And I'm and I suddenly realized watching the ways that I could have written the words on the sand and the waves could have just washed away. That's how relevant was. And that was a shocking concept. And then I don't know a half hour later. I'm still singing I thought it doesn't matter. I got something that is process. I this was something I did as much for myself. This was not an invalid thing that just happened. And when I finally stood up its onset, I resolved. I was in at this point doing this as much for myself as for other people in these notions are in velvet buzzsaw the end of valid buzzsaw ends with Jewish John Malkovich. Which is literally what I experienced the idea that there is an outsider artist who's who's who's creating art as a cathartic experience for childhood trauma. Art can be as much for the artist as it can be for the audience. And I think in this film, I was really interested in the relationship between commerce and art in today's world. And the relationship is a very rocky won the quality of a work can't be judged by the number of clicks, reviews or dollar paid. I'm not saying that success diminishes the work. But it didn't no way defines it some. I'm sort of speaking to two different groups are speaking of people monetize art, saying art is more than a commodity assign ever forget that. Because I think sometimes we do. And I'm also speaking artists if you can become a brand you can beat yourself become a brand. God bless you. If that's what you want. That's fine. I don't judge that at all. But I think they're I I look at creativity as sort of a knife edge, and you can blunt it if you're not careful with repetition, and these are themes that are in the film. So I'm sort of I'm throwing ideas at their amidst the satire that you've experienced. Yeah. It's so interesting. I wonder if you have heard from anyone in the art world since you've started showing the film to people and what their reaction to it is. I haven't heard yet. I feel very secure in our research and all the almonds, and I'll tell you last week. I finally watched the price of everything on HBO. I was gonna ask you if you've seen it. I saw it a week ago and everything that these titans in the industry talk about are things that are in our film. I find that. I really asked down in my notes here. I it's so. Eerie how so much of what you are hitting on, you know, essentially, mocking there are people doing in real time in this documentary. It's fascinating. And Jake's character one point says when Toni Collette is asking about money, and where where it's all going in Texas on the money question. It's on everybody's talking about it. And in my research. Everybody is talking about what they're time at the present anything. Everybody knows that something's wrong is somehow it's not like they don't know what I don't think it can be stopped when he can't be stopped the more money the more fuel. It's like trying to stop a bonfire. It's not gonna stop. But people are trying to figure out where it's going. What is it? What does it mean? Does it diminish? Does it do this? It's a very interesting time for contemporary, art, anything. Yeah. I mean, do you see some of the same struggles for yourself as a filmmaker do feel any kind of crunch, even though you're in this peaceful moment, the only the crunch. I feel is is is that I'm an industry, which is which is in a transition phase because of the traditional studios going one way, and Netflix and other people coming in Philly that that's interesting to me it the idea as as as somebody who creates. It's that like I said I'm trying to create more for myself now than for other people. I'm trying to turn my back a little bit on all the noise, and China, I feel that if you create if look night took me a long time, but a night Carl I feel like I've found my voice, whatever my voice is a night crawler. I believe it's enrollment. I believe it's an so I'm just trying to follow my voice, I'm trying to create things that that that are relevant to me. And that brings its own piece it at this point, tell me a little bit about Roman because I don't think that there is enough conversation about it. I think it was a little bit overlooked, even though Denzel was acknowledged. And he's really interesting movie. Really well made what's your sort of? How do you look back on it? Now a few years removed from it on tremendously proud of it for myself and for all the people who worked on particularly for Denzel. I mean, I mean, I discuss this when it was out, but really Roman to me is is the story of the burden of of belief. It's it's it's he's a character. Who's carried a a sort of symbolic cross for so long, and he can't hold it up anymore, and he's going to drop it into me. That is the most of all things we are all going to not meet our standards at some point. And the ultimate message Roman is about redemption. It's it's not about failure. It's about finding a way out of out of something when you can turn when you turn your back on everything you believe in and you suddenly say, oh my God. How could this have happened? Where can you go and forgiving yourself and forgiving circumstances? That is an elevating experience that I was interested in. It's I'm very proud of the film when you're writing does the theme comforters. Does the the idea this setup confide? He always comes. First father is a writer told us from a very early age never bore you cannot bore. So I honestly think the first and foremost job of any artist on some level is to engage you can put slash entertain. But you have to engage people, and I'm looking for vehicles at engaging audience, and that become sort of Christmas trees that I can hang ideas on let me ask you a it struck me as I was watching this movie, you have a real knack for name. Tmz you your character names are very creative in this film in particular, they're sort of really elevated, but we're does stuff like that. Come from. Do you spend a lot of time trying to grab something that will really while people or puts, you know, kind of knocked him off their feet. The idea comes from. I I am an enormous Charles Dickens fan and one of the things I loved about dickens was he saw he saw a name as a vehicle to tell you something about the character. So I could spend a day on a character's name, and I have spent eight is been days on a character's name. I have lists of names. I have files of names, I'm put names one name. And I'm always experimenting looking more Vanderbilt. John Don, Don, reduce your Hayes. I just these these are names that I like, I just love names yen. I find the characters are saying those names frequently in the film, you know, it's so much fun. Not to have to ring out in some way. I find that you miss. That's great Dan couple more questions one. I'm curious. What's the last movie you've seen that you're jealous of I am jealous? Of roma. Yeah. What what was it about that? He is reminded Koran reminded us that there's nothing more dramatic than human small events framed in the right way that threw me there are scenes in Roma that rival any spectacle being made on any budget level. It just I was grossed in that film as it went as anything that I've ever seen. And and these are these are these are deep undercurrents that are not evident. They seem like they shouldn't be so important. But, but when you frame them the way he's framed them, so masterfully they become so powerful. And I just think it's it's it's a reminder of of the of of the potential for drama among people away from spectacle. And I'm only jealous in the sense that I'm not jealous. I I I'm at Meyer that he picked up the mantle and said look people life. This is this is this is really dynamite stuff if you can look at it the right way. Don't forget about it. Do you have a checklist of the kinds of films that you want to be able to make future in your career? None. Do you figure out where to go it all just an idea it just suddenly ideas on these seems really relevant? I have ideas for really dumb broad comedies that that. I once in a while I threatened to do I haven't I should write an action film. I wanna do I have I it's just an idea comes to you. I like I remember watching Slumdog millionaire, and I thought man that writer 'cause I based on a book, I must have been so excited the day. They came up with the idea of the game show quiz that became a vehicle to tell a story in flashback. That's like if I come up with that idea. I just wouldn't. That's just too cool. An idea ideas are have the shapes to them, and and you and if you look at them relevant to us on the you can see them other people can't see them. But but ideas, suddenly just leap out and go look at me, they sort of have structured to them, and and you become on my God. That's just like cool little thing. I could it's like a toy you can play with. So what are you doing next? I'm writing in original spec. Another one set in Los Angeles. At night. God help me at night s another night move in LA thought you would have learned by now. I will you. It's funny shooting at night in LA's fantastic after ten o'clock. There's no traffic. I noticed there were a couple of very good LA moments in in the new film as well. Yeah, we we shot, but I love shooting Elliott night. It's empty it's deserted. It's got this cool energy to it. It's cooler, literally, cooler, it's really interesting wild energy. Let's get dinner. I end every show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing they've seen. So maybe not that you're jealous of. But just a great thing that you saw I am an enormous fan of Ben Stiller as as gave him down tomorrow. Yeah. Guy was blown away. I I heard that he took two years on it. Then if you're listening, it was a really well spent two years, it's an incredible piece Patricia and Paul and Benito these performances are one of the writing was great to six six or seven parts on the did you see it? I did on the fifth or sixth episode when that thing happens, and you all my God, this was because it structurally, so brilliant to put that they're not in the front where it would have so differently affect. The peace, and I would have been so proud to do that piece. I thought it was remarkable. That's a great answer. I had so much fun watching Belva bus ident-. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate. Thanks so much, Dan Gilroy. And thank you to you.

Amazon Makes HQ2 Decision, Snubs Pittsburgh
"We're going to go back to the Amazon H Q two palooza here for a minute. And talk about one of the cities that didn't make it to the big dance. You know, one of the cities that spent all that money and all those hours gathering all that data to put together a pitch that as we learned today officially went nowhere or did it from W E essay in Pittsburgh, one of Amazon's top twenty by the way, but not one of its top to marketplace's Eric embarrassed takes a look at what might be the real payoff. Am with Pittsburgh city councilwoman, Deborah grows. Then we're driving through what's known as robotics row. Apple. Facebook. An Uber are just a few of the big names in this fifteen block stretch close to downtown Pittsburgh. There's probably not a place where this many technology innovators in competition with each other our next door. Neighbors all those companies have taken up residents in the past decade or so transforming empty warehouses into offices in laps. The city didn't have to do much to court them. They came to take advantage of the area's highly skilled labor force. And bro says not much improved since the company's showed up. There's not even sidewalk space. So there's no pedestrian infrastructure. There's no safety infrastructure. There were no street lights Amazon has an office here too. But when the company announced it was looking for a second headquarters, Pittsburgh realized it was going to take a lot to learn Amazon a second time so more than four hundred people from government business in higher Ed along with a team of highly paid consultants studied every aspect of the region to prepare the three hundred page proposal for H Q to if it takes a catalyst like that to bring people together in a room to really assess what our needs are what are social needs. Are what our infrastructure needs are and how we can do better to meet them. That's not a bad thing. What did they learn the city schools? Not that great the transportation system hard to get from here to there. And when it comes to ethnic diversity the region is lacking David Rupert. Burger with the Pittsburgh reasonable alliance. Worked on the proposal we've recognized that the odds for long, but we also recognized early on that there was going to be benefit to this regardless of whether we are selected or not, and we feel like we've already won one because Pittsburgh now has a detailed and data rich profile of itself that it can use to drive improvement and since making it onto Amazon shortlist of finalists other companies have come calling, but I would call mini Amazon's like affirm a financial tech company that said last month that will set up a big office in Pittsburgh. There was also this by connection free to Seattle. It's the real deal. Pittsburgh get from the steel city to the emerald city in just a few hours on a new nonstop flight. Pittsburgh was already in line for the flight, but Christina because it's hostess CEO at the Pittsburgh airport set. The timing looked good nonetheless and made it easier to court other airlines and flights Amazon gave us a great platform. Say see look, we're in contention for this and. And that was really that was a fantastic Colin card for us as some cities have learned. Sometimes just being a contender is enough. Let's go back to the nineties. United Airlines was looking to build a new maintenance facility that would create five thousand jobs the finalists were Indianapolis and Oklahoma City when Indianapolis one Oklahoma City pressed United to reveal why former mayor Mick cornet. So they finally disclosed that they had sent in some mid level executives and their spouses and ask them to spend a weekend in Oklahoma City and report back to the board of directors and Chicago. And when the board looked at that report, they just decided they couldn't imagine their employees living there. It was hard to hear. But it spurred the city to improve its downtown and outdoor space with hotels and restaurants and bring in sports teams, and those changes attracted new companies cornet says the United facility was the best thing that that didn't happen years from now some cities maybe saying. The same thing about Amazon H Q, two infants Berg. I'm Eric embarrassed for marketplace.
