"On Dr Phil Knight. We're back here. We're talking about heroes in our own food banks, seven food banks that serve all of Michigan. They were the ones that have really been moving the food, Jerry. I mean, I know everybody has a role to play, and it's important from fun development people and marketing people and communications people. But and these folks that are moving so much food. Where would we be without him? Yeah, That's right. You know, when we talk about pounds, it's an idea. When they talk about pounds, it's their back their legs and their art. Right. It's easy for me to say the network increased by £2 million every week during the you know, through the course of the pandemic. Yes, an entirely different thing. If you're loading that semi, that's exactly right pounds feel a lot different when they're attached to your arms and your move of somewhere. God bless him for sure. So, Jerry, you know, under blue skies, transportation Of food to two across the state. Whether it's so a rural area or um, or concentrated urban area, eyes a challenge. It's a challenge for food banks is the challenge for food bankers to keep drivers and have drivers and enough drivers and qualified drivers and, um Drivers who are mature and understand the work and are willing to do just that. Um, I'm gonna tell you a story about a driver. His name's Chuck. And he works at feeding America, West Michigan, which covers about half of our state and has some long drives Esso. He's a truck driver from for a mobile distribution. He's not been in the position very long. He retired. And then he came to this position, and I think that happens quite a bit in our network. So this was his first experience with food and security. So he drives his truck and he pulls up to the distribution site, which is in new Buffalo. You know, it occurs to Chuck that, um,.
Business Insights You Should Take Away from 2020
"Powerful insights. You should take away from twenty twenty here. We go number one and this might sound obvious. But we're going to go down a deeper level and that's you can't control everything that's probably the biggest thing we saw in our face every day is that you cannot control everything around you okay. You're on a coffee shop. You can't control a global pandemic right if you're on a software company you can't control if some of your staff members are infected with covid nineteen and you're down manpower. These are things out of your realm of influence. You cannot control it so you might be singled kilmore ghetto. But what's the point. The point is is that you have to recognize come to terms of the fact that in business those things you cannot control and you have to be ready for that. You have to be ready for the inevitable. There's a great book called the black swan by necessity nicklaus talip- the subtitle is the impact of the highly inflammable. If you don't know the author to lab is an investor and he's made all his wealth off the fact that bad things will happen. We assume being sometimes ignore the fact that the disastrous things like the covid nineteen pandemic is bound to happen in our lifetime. Now i know. Tala specifically considers cova to be something we could have avoided rather than an unpredictable disaster but for business owners. The principle still applies for those you in your thirties or forties. You have a pretty good actually We've had a pretty good run without any disasters. Most people go through a lifetime where they've seen multiple wars. They've had to serve pandemics disasters huge national disasters or even environmental disasters but the human brain is not wired to always anticipate this. If you really want to understand how the pandemic really affected economies has really affected your own business and how you could have benefited. If you haven't already read the book black swan it will allow you to put everything in perspective and allow you to utilize this experience so in the future when this happens again because it will happen again. It's just a matter of time when another thing like this happens again. How can you make sure that it doesn't affect your business your personal life but in fact you'll be prepared and you'll be ready and that leads me to number two. You can't control everything but you can control how you prepare and react a lot of people when this pandemic hit they kinda just put their hands up in the air and said you know what There's nothing i can do. No there's plenty can do. Let me give you an example. Many businesses actually saw an uptick during the covid nineteen pandemic because they prepared and they react properly nicole founder and wife has a personal trainer. Her name is amy mitchell and she runs goddess fitness shrines. He's outdoor boot camps for women and anybody who's in any business that is a physical business in person business that has people congregating. You would think kovic would just totally anomaly that business. No amy had the foresight and said hey. I got a pivot. I gotta change. I gotta have other offerings on my site. And she offered online training people training with her Via calls shows the helps them with their nutrition and diet plan and recently Amy shared with nicole that twenty one of her best years for business because she made that change because she had the revenue stream from online clients and when restrictions. Ease a little bit in australia. And things got back on track. She still had her physical boot camps and the line clients didn't leave. They still kept on going. This is a perfect example of being prepared and reacting properly understanding. That things are changing. Something happened something is different now in the world. I can't just do the same things i got change. I gotta react got adapt number three those who make it when it's tough. They thrive on the other end and this became very apparent in countries where the vid pandemic was under control and things started to open up and economies started to kind of go back to normal. There are many businesses. That just threw in the towel. Just didn't adapt didn't change the people that survived that rough patch. The actually now are market leaders are now really thriving because there's a whole lot less competition. There's a whole lot less noise and people who made it. When it's tough can really go on and succeed when things are back to normal when things are easier for the business owner going through something like this is like going through a war. People can't just be business as normal when bombs are falling from the sky. It's a rough time but those who survived and its peacetime again. They're going to become the market leaders for the next foreseeable future. So people that do the first to really benefit those who know they can't control everything so therefore they prepare and they adapt and react properly. The survived that rough patch and they come out superstrong so even if you're in a country where things are still locked down. Things are tough and covert hang in there trying to lower your expenses as much as possible servive because you wanna see daylight. You wanna be there when this is all over you want to still be in business because then it's going to be a whole lot easier for you not only because you know. The challenges are over from the pandemic but because it weeds out the weak. It's like what phil knight says in his autobiography shoe dog. And i'm paraphrasing here. The cowards and never tried the week died along the way that leaves us

What phil knight did by again is waffle maker machine and making his own shoe by hand in those early days and putting up nike to being what it is now is completely different to the susan. Going and buying again replica. Trainers taking up the solution. Adding his own insignia side of it. That isn't that. There's nothing transformative about that. That's just him buying ready-made stalk and importantly solution side. I if you it as s no no shame no game.

"All your life you are told the things you cannot do all your life they will tell you. You're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough. They'll say you're the wrong height or the wrong type to play this or this or achieve this sometimes the ads featured female athletes but often there were no sports picture at all. Instead there would be a picture of marilyn monroe or an antique photo of a mother and daughter or just toward. No they will tell you know a thousand times no until all the other knows become meaningless all your life they will tell you know quite firmly and quite quickly they will tell you know and you will tell them yes after. Decades of explicitly masculine advertising. This was a seismic change in approach. But contrary to what it might seem. It wasn't a change in identity. These new ads weren't soft and flowery. They were tough and direct. It sent a signal to women. Written a woman's authentic voice our shoes of for athletes and you are athletes to nike. Started getting letters for women again this time. Praise of the ads. The campaign was over zoning. Success and pave the way to endorsement deals with superstar. Female athletes from cheryl swoops to michelle we. To the goat of tennis serena williams they started with athletes and they have all the best athletes in the world. And it's funny. because a lot of athletes. They could get paid a lot more to work with other brands but they stick with nike because of the level of excellence in performance and the brand value that night he has once more eddie lieu of goat with nike they stuck to their core values and becoming truthful to what they stand for and having that point of view is very important remember. Great branding is about matchmaking riskier. Not there's actually a benefit to letting your brand story defined not only who your audience is but who it isn't. He took a risk by making colin kaepernick. The anchor celebrity of just to its thirtieth anniversary campaign in two thousand eighteen. Kapernick had been the quarterback for the san francisco. Forty niners until he started kneeling during the national anthem to protest police violence and racial inequality in america when he signed on a nike's campaign he and still is unsigned by any. Nfl team. And nike's add spoke to that believe in something kapernick said even if it means sacrificing everything the ad i air during the nfl season opener a not so subtle dig at capp's former employer by making him. The face of just do it. Nike wasn't just during controversy there. We're taking a clear stand in a moment. Extreme political division. They were picking a side. It sounds easy but it. It's hard for a lot of companies. Right but i think nike's done a great job saying what our core values that stick to them and let's have a point of and that's how people really create more affinity for the brand. They work with a lot of athletes and the people in the community that are affected by things that happen in this world. So i think it was great to see nike share their point of view on important topics that affect their audience. And i think this next generation of consumers are really in tune with social justice. And like you did a great job of supporting them. In that way nike decided it was important a double down on their values including the one that told him never to play it safe. They trusted that a love. It would generate an athletes and fans would far away the anger it would raise and others. And if you're wondering if this risk paid off. Nike saw thirty one percent increase in online sales in the ads. Immediate wake it was basically system where we said we don't care how many people dislike it as long as enough people like us. The nike of today looks a lot different than the nike of nine hundred eighty eight or nineteen seventy-one including the fact that phil is no longer. Ceo and now chairman emeritus but despite all the changes. The core of the company seems intact. Nike is still associated with high level. Performance us above all in fact one of the most recent products. The nike vapor was almost banned from the olympics forgiving. It's runners too much of an edge of that innovation Has gone a long way in making us appreciate that. Nike pushes the envelope even to now the the vapor flies and allowing people to run the marathon under two hours. It's it's amazing through iq's innovation that has allowed them to get there. I asked phil knight up the lessons. He's learned and trying to keep the identity of the company crisp had aligned with its audience while continuing to grow. What are some of the areas where you found that the mistakes taught you about the brand so like i know that one of the things was. Well we're before we're very focused on sports then maybe weren't apparel company. Maybe we'll have casual shoes. You named two of the real good failures absolutely. We had a brand of casual shoes called i e and it wasn't very successful and then we bought a company called cole haan which really was successful. We sold it not because it wasn't successful because we thought our resources were better served in the other areas. Those experiments may have fizzled but nikes. Active where lines have thrived especially as they've continued to expand their definition of who and athlete is and what she might look like. Recently they launched nike m their first maternity collection. Saying mothers are the ultimate endurance. Athletes phil knight may not have envisioned. This product market fit back in nineteen sixty four but in nineteen sixty four. Our vision of who an elite athlete is was probably too narrow. even as nike has evolved. Its understanding of its core. Customer match between customer and it's branded entity has.

"If you don't take your training seriously who cares what you wear. But there was a flaw in that plan to go all in on the serious runner. The number of people who aren't they had defined their target audience so narrowly. They made themselves vulnerable to the competition. The eighties we got a brain speed out by upstart company called reebok and they basically focused on women and they focused on what the shoes looked like and we hadn't really focused on the appearance of issues. We said if she performs and a great athlete or is it it'll sell and so all of a sudden designed became important to us because we are losing market share for bad design if you will by the nineteen eighties sneakers or well. Integrated into everyday fashion. Men wore them with suits to look a little rebellious. Women wore them in place of high heels on their way to the office. And it wasn't just reebok mike. His old nemesis adidas were also surging in popularity in clout after performing their song. My adidas at madison square garden the rap group run dmc a million dollar endorsement deal on the spot. Nike was bleeding market share and there was no sign of it. Stopping speaking only to the driven market was not going to deliver a win. So nike pivoted back to the swoosh talking precisely to everything surrounding it. We went back and and got an emphasis on design. We had a young designer that we kind of put in charge of all those design. His name was more parker freshening. The look of their shoes was a good start and style has been an integral part of nike strategy. Ever since but it wasn't enough they also had to pivot their sales strategy. They needed to inform the non elite athlete. The nike was for them to and we said well. Maybe we should try some advertising after all. If this seems like it should have been a no brainer. Keep in mind would fill told us at the start of his episode. I never thought. I was sales personality to fill. Their shoes. shouldn't have to pass the fashion test. If nike was trusted by world champions. What else did you need to know. But even he had to admit was time to connect the reputation of their branding and their branding to a wider audience. What they did next would soon change. Everything will be back in a moment after a word from our sponsor.

"Was revealed but fillon his friend still tried to unload the free merchandise selling. A cyclopes door to door is a bit of an overstatement. Since i didn't sell a single one. But i did try it for a week before i quit. It wasn't by choice. But phil learned a valuable lesson. Selling by deception is harder than it looks. It feels bad to trick people into buying a product. You don't believe in and they don't want to give selling a bad reputation it places customer and salesperson in zero-some match that only one of them can win and frequently. They both lose luckily fills. Brief foray into the encyclopedic arts was merely a side to his main mission. That had started back when he was a student at the university of oregon ran on the track team coached by bill armony hall of fame coach and he was always experimenting with shoes in those days. All the really great runners were either adidas or puma shoes and it was a real eye opener for me when davis won the pacific coast conference championship and a pair of barman homemade shoes. If you're having a hard time picturing pair of homemade track shoes they're little frankenstein ish with leather operas. Cut by hand and glued to rubber and metal souls. Bilbao woman was so obsessed with making lightweight racing spikes for his runners. He even studied with a cobbler. Each new prototype was an experiment. Often performed unfil- himself. He tried it out on his as he called his hamburgers before. I put it on his elite athletes. He felt that getting lighter shoes was important. Those bauer men homemade shoes left their imprint. On phil's mind it stayed there when he went on to business school at stanford. I wrote a paper in the entrepreneurship class. Japanese shoes do german shoes with japanese cameras. Did a german cameras. The teacher a game a good grade. And i got kind of excited about it and away. We go fill wasn't trying to build shoes like his old track coach. He just wanted to sell them and he had an idea of where the innovation was happening. He headed to japan with one. Brief encyclopaedia field stop in hawaii. Along the way phil managed to score a meeting with executives from the nitsa company who manufactured an exciting new running shoe called the tiger was the kind of lightweight performance. Shoe bilbao woman had been trying to make from scratch. Phil wanted to sell it in the us. Now he needed to sell nitsa on himself. At the end of the day it was a sales experience. Right i got sell them. On letting me be a distributor of the tiger shoes fill improvise the name for his existent company. Right there on the spot. Blue ribbon sports. The name might have been made up but his enthusiasm for the tiger was honest. So is diligent market research and strategy to capture market share from adidas his passion and preparedness convinced nigga to make blue ribbon sports. They're american distributor. His sales pitch had worked now. He needed make good on his promises. He returned to the united states. Got himself some samples and got to work. One of his first calls was to his old track coach. I don't remember how many samples got in but it was probably twenty pair. Maybe i sent a couple of them down barmen and hoping that he would buy some for his team he called me up and he said i'm going to be up in portland for an indoor meet. Let's have lunch. That's when he proposed that we partners and i was thrilled. We shook hands in the agreed to put in five hundred dollars. And that's what i had put in as there. We go fill had come to the table looking to make a sale instead. He got a founding partner. Without even having the pitch baron had immediately recognized what is former runner was offering. It was a chance to create a future. They both believed in full of featherweight sneakers. That would help people run fast. The idea sold itself. His deal was the world needs better running shoe and these were people that made good shoes and were really responsive to ideas on making better shoes but as much improved as the tiger shoes were. It didn't take long fulfill and co-chairman to start tinkering with the design. They said this is a great high. Jump training shoe and it had some cushioning in it. And i says well that's sort of silly for the high jump shoe but cushioning for a running shoe makes perfect sense and it didn't make that much sense of japan where they average runaway about one hundred twenty five pounds but in the united states were the one hundred sixty pound runner running on the streets. Cushioning men a lot barmen was tearing us apart which ultimately led to a shoe called cortez. Which was the first cushioned. Mid-sole running shoe which really kind of got us going. The partnership between phil knight bill bauer and own nitsa tiger clicked because of a shared goal improve functionality and quality while keeping their price point below that of puma and adidas fill the value of the product was obvious if the shoe performed it would sell period and the proof was in the receipts. We went eight years as it. Sugar and we got sales up to two million dollars. Which in modern times doesn't seem like much but their total sales in japan were twenty two million dollars so it was not bad. It wasn't bad but soon other distributors started noticing and they wanted in a nitsa was fielding competitive offers to help sell their shoes to american athletes. They got besieged by different distributors. United states..
TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations
"And Tick Tock recently made headlines Everywhere when Resin Donald Trump signed an executive order. That would essentially ban the Chinese owned APP in the US for national security reasons. Unless it sells its operations here to an American company. And of course, if that were to happen. We would have nowhere to go to see a million potatoes singing. To Adele. And that would be a national tragedy. This week deal actually emerged between TIKTOK and American company Oracle but some people like Zachary say trump's tiktok policy effectively changes. Nothing. The argument goes like this. It will do little to protect Americans data from the Chinese government because there are still plenty of other ways China could get that data that this move is just a new kind of security theater basically. The hard work of data security according to this actually lies elsewhere. So, Zachary TIKTOK has been banned in Indiana a few other countries, but it's still pretty popular for now it's the most popular video sharing app i. can see why it seems like fun and there are mental creative. They're short I mean the whole nature of the medium has their time limited. What happened with Tiktok this week what happened this week? Should be clear but isn't. Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target. We'll be right back. Everyone wants to become a better leader this groundbreaking new book how to lead shows you how David M Rubenstein is one of the visionary founders of the Carlisle Group and host of the David Rubenstein Show where he speaks to leaders from every walk of life about who they are, how they define success and what it means to lead.

Effective innovative leaders. Walter Isaacson proclaims reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets, pick up a copy of how to lead wisdom from the world's greatest CEOS founders and Game Changers Bhai David Rubenstein available in Hardcover e book or audio, and we're back I get the kind of general personal security aspect of it. Where does the national security aspect of it come in? Is it because there's concern about people who worked at the Defense Department or the military whoever having to talk in in use in their households or people in the Defense Department are not allowed to use tiktok certainly not on their phones. For before this although they may have teenagers who That's vulnerability as well. So it wasn't primarily about like US government employees who might have sensitive data that tiktok would be the back door way that the Chinese government would spy on them but it was generalized sense of any foreign government that is using private American citizen data potentially for nefarious purposes represents a national security threat. Now, it clearly has not represented the kind of national security threat in the estimation of the White House right now when it's Russian. Manipulation of social media accounts the same principle should or would apply right. If you'RE GONNA ban, Tiktok you'd probably want to take action against the a variety of Russian media enterprises that are attempting to manipulate and hoover up American user data. Some of that data's you mentioned earlier in terms of third party is available to anybody for a price just because there's a marketplace for data. Which I think either most of us aren't aware of or frankly most probably don't care if politicos data on this podcast gets sold to fourteen vendors so that it can sell you and me products based on our other computer activity most people. Either like that, or don't care about that. But the national security concern is simply because it's a foreign government that could potentially. Use, our search history or browsing history nefarious. And again a, that might be true but be it's likely that all this kind of data is obtainable irrespective of whether or not a company called TIKTOK. Happens to have access to a lot of it. It's really interesting. So into this whole story comes oracle, you know huge hardware software firm but how did they get involved here? Yes. Oracle is is a multibillion dollar firm that has had the same public profile as Microsoft or Amazon or facebook or apple because most of its business is to other large companies, you know you and I don't tend to go out and buy Oracle piece of hardware because we don't need a hundred and fifty thousand dollars server or. Network system for our employees. They're largely corporate provider throw a huge provider to the Defense Department in terms of cheer equipment and material, and they're huge software company. They're one of the early Silicon Valley success stories and the billionaire founder Larry Ellison has been probably more conservative than not I don't know that I buy into the whole. This is a reward versus. A snub to the other potential main acquirer or partner for Tiktok, which was rumored to be Microsoft but this is an unusual. This doesn't usually fit oracle's business model. Well, that's that's interesting. So what is their interest in getting involved here perceived to be I'm not one hundred percent clear about that I mean look at could allow them to. Have a little bit more of a consumer facing brand. Again, I mean Oracle's. Primarily a software company primarily a database company. Maybe this could help them increase their databases. There's no way that this is a natural fit for goal. But at the same time north this a huge cost for Oracle, maybe it'll produce some American jobs. I mean. They're looking for growth just like everybody's looking for growth, and once you get to be the size of Oracle. Growth gets harder some of they're also looking for a DIFFERENT INDUSTRY TO BE President Chore? So. What exactly did they given? What did they get here that as of this conversation is not one hundred percent clear off so it was presented as or go by tiktok. That is not the case or at least it's not the case now and as possible. The deal will be scuttled or change given that all of this has to be approved by the government has to be approved by committee. Called Syfy S, which is the committee in charge of looking at global deals in terms of US national security, but it would seem that right now. The parent company of Tiktok saw own TIKTOK and get some of the economic benefits of TIKTOK. This Chinese company called by dance and that Oracle in turn will get a massive licensing deal to house Tiktok data and information on its own. Servers and using its own software. So the concern that the Chinese government would have access to that data would be allayed meeting under this agreement arrangement because the data would be managed by and it's housing would be arranged by a US company. The Chinese government could order by dance to turn over but by dance itself wouldn't actually have access to that data. It's interesting I mean based on what you said before it's they're they're they're moving this data from place a, it's not going to be in a different place and I guess the Chinese government will no longer have a key to the door. But as you said before there's many different ways that either the Chinese government or a lot of other. State or private actors can get hold on more or less any data they want to these days right? which kind of raises the question for point of all, this is ENA. It's certainly true. It would make it a little more challenging to get that data under that kind of arrangement. It seems like this a big fight over a big company. That's not actually really about. The literal subject of the conflict here. Yeah. It is totally fair to say that whatever the imbroglio about tiktok has very little to do with tiktok. And everything to do with US policy toward China. And the trump administration looking for some High profile optic to be able to say we're we're being tough on China and protecting American citizens. Again, the oddity of Tiktok is given that so many of its users or young adults. Who Don't vote although who would be? Extremely, Acetate it. If they woke up tomorrow and there's no TIKTOK meeting, it's probably not. The most popular move if what you're trying to do is gain support during a presidential election. So it's not entirely clear what constituency the served there wasn't like a huge congressional clamor for Oh my God. We're all big imperilled by these fifteen second videos. So where do you think things go from here in terms of into in terms of the real story behind all this in terms of the U., S., China relationship and the increasing in. them of that. So I think to some degree regardless of who wins the presidential election. there. Is a train that's left the proverbial station of increasing. Distrust and animosity between the United States and China. But within the context of an incredible amount of economic interdependence that you cannot just snap your fingers and several or at least not without massive massive harm to each part of that equation both the United States and China, and that's that's pretty unprecedented. Right? Right. That's like the Cold War analogy doesn't work because there was no economic relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union nineteen. Fifty S

T. to be able to hold shut off notices and cancel those are a lot of patience to be able to create some sort of payment plan so they can get both things and we also are working to try and ensure that they're able to get their medical supplies many of our patients don't have access or don't have the ability to get the medical supplies that we need they need in order to care for themselves and so we're working on those things all the time we brought in legal services and in a partnership with a legal services of southwestern Michigan and the old attorneys coming here and they help us support to help our.

And there's people that know you from. But at the end of the day, it's like it doesn't have to necessarily still be that way. And I just thought that was a good thing for me to chew on. Because I just thought it had to be that way to the greatest example. So who owns Nike outside of shareholders who's the main person Phil Knight, Phil Knight? How often do you sail? Very rarely at game or two right? From. That's just really with the past several years because he's like ju just such a g because he put his book out yet that that's right.

Kevin Durant helps his brand Serena Williams, and the list of Nike athlete goes on and on and on and on and on. But had he said I have to be the face of this running shoe because I think they start off as light rummaging. You know saying? And it needs to be about me. You wanna suffocated the growth, right? And that mentality starts at the beginning. When it's too guy who is not accepting anybody give him helping anything. There's just not it just doesn't get to the branding part is to suffocating of the the process of allowing people to come and help you make this thing was supposed to be. So that's all after saying closed. I love it though. And so because I always say the statement, but it's not about you. It's about what you can do. It's about what you can control about the business. So yeah, eliminate your name yourself from the idea and say what can I do? Okay. I can okay. So I need other people to do this too. Many people think about them factual store we move to question of this. This is a factual store to listeners is whatever date is as I started our thing. I was running our thing.

Hip hop is this place in in order to in order to be one of the great like you have to respect this place, and this and this low box that we box hip hop in it as I as I grew. I don't think it's a healthy way. To think of that. I think hip hop was more like a tree, and it has branches and they're going to branch off and sometimes those branches don't coincide with other branches. But it's just it's more. If it's it's the it's the macro of what hip hop was. And for that, I respect it. I it was you enable kids to get in a in a room on free loops in being beaten, three minutes. Right. And make a platinum record. Like the the found foundation. Late. And so for that I respect and so I get upset at the kids to fuck is this what is this? But it's like, it's not my way, I know for us.

I mean, anyone who's making music is going to end up Phil Knight that sooner or later, and it's about what point it takes him to get there. I think and that's why I think being young shit. And that's why I really like Jayco songs, I think he was really addressing it in a very fair way. He's talking about people being young. And he was just informing them on. What is actually happening? Right. I mean, he's like not hating on them. Because he's like when you're young this type of you, do you know, what I mean, that's one thing that like when I said on Twitter some shit, like, I'm I'm going to make a video actually really talk about drugs and really talk about why you shouldn't do drugs, and what blah, blah, and I just didn't get around to doing it because I just it's it's much harder. To talk about something serious than just to sort of be sarcastic and have fun and just be joking around about shit. And that's like. I don't know to be honest like talking to you in this conversation, or like certain conversations, I've had in recent memory of like sort of giving me that that urge again to be like unit to articulate like what's wrong with like certain things in our cultures particularly the drug thing. Like, you need to just be as explicit as possible about your real opinion about that shit because you can joke around about partying and stuff, and it's fine. But like young kids in particular need to have the truth spoon-fed than they do now. And that's the thing that's their young. So you have to guide them on the right path. And I'm gonna go there. They're going to be young and done. And like, yeah. But the thing is not going to get there unless they really get the real about it. You know what I mean? Like for me. I got to see what I'm saying drug addiction at a very drug out a super young age. You know what I mean? And then for whatever reason, you know, shouts out to guide for giving me like at least enough intelligence to see that is not what I wanna be like, you know, what I'm saying. I'm like, you know, whether it's like different family members had that were just completely strung out on drugs. Just like seeing them do really weird shit that I just not funny this weird because drug addicts do we're shit. Like, you know what I mean? Seeing a lot of that early. Just gave me the preparation it'd be like whatever it takes do that. I'm not going to. And ended up making me somebody that tells that to kids, but yeah, like you have to tell real stories about that type of shit in order for kids to be like fuck, I don't wanna do that. You know what I mean? But then again, I feel like people have had this problem for so long, man. Like, you know, I mean, but do you think it's happened question? Do you think you think drug problems have become more of an issue now, and they were in the past? Yeah. You think more kids are doing drugs now than we're doing drugs I- in the fucking. Eighties like from myself on my own personal analysis of it is like I didn't know about any of the pills or what they did when I was like in high school. Yeah. Because it was like harder to find information about stuff and everything. And now, it's like you listen to any song, you could probably never took a partisan. I know what it's like because I listened enough rappers talk about it. It's like, you know, just feel like there's much more access to information granted. Yeah. A lot of that information should be able to guide you to not do drugs, but realistically, people didn't know about shit more. And I I don't know. I mean, I would I would be hesitant to say. Like, yes, kids are doing way more drugs now. But there are way more drugs. There's less jobs. There's less opportunities on average. I would say so I would like to see, but I feel like probably more..

"No. Is that going to happen? Almost? Certainly not because Jerry's been the strongest against kneeling, and he's, I think he's a President Trump confidante. Can I go that far? They've had phone conversations and yet he's also very close. This is where the mixed emotions come in to one Phil Knight owner and operator of one, Nike. Phil Knight specially made Jerry a pair of Jerry Jones memorial sneakers. Remember that wear for his hall of fame induction and proudly wore them on stage for that. Yes, straight from Phil Knight. So they are very close and have been closed for a long time. So there are a lot of cross ties here that that are very interesting, no matter the issue to one major Joan love more than.

Skill set will be used quote in the future, say, even use both quarterbacks in their blowout win last Saturday, but he came under fire. I post game interview with ESPN's, Maria Taylor, save got testy when the QB situation was brought up, then he called Taylor directly to apologize for joined by FOX college football analyst. Joel Klatt and ledger. Here for this job. I've been wanting to ask what you thought of it but has been been mishandling. The quarterback situation will. Yes and no, right. I think that his interactions with the press have been less than positive. However, I think he's been fair to both guys and I think that's what he needed to do. You can say what you want about what happened last year in the national championship game, but it remains to only played for one half and their chips were in the middle of the table. He had to play too, because what was going on in that game having to throw the football and to made a couple of really bad mistakes on the interception took the sack right before he threw the touchdown and overtime. So I think Nick in the back of his mind thought to himself, I believe that we're going to need to have this battle carry out into the beginning of the season, even though all of us at their and thought, boy, you've got a different dynamic skill set with two than you do. Jalen hurts. Now, having said that, I think he was fair to jail because Jalen had just led him to two straight national championship games now to may of one one of them, but Jalen let them their only two losses as a starter and as a player, that's all I can ask for is a coach to be fair to the opportunity that I feel like I deserve. Serve, and I think hurts deserve the opportunity to start and now moving forward to earn the opportunity to start. And I think that can be a distinction between the two. He's handling it okay publicly not very well behind closed doors as a player. I actually appreciate the way that he's handled it. You've handled is well, if you could a part of a part of me thinks that he handled this way because he didn't want Jane hers to transfer right. And he knows that he, he, they hit away on of quarterback, Jalen hurts being back into ballgame. But what coach they was able to that tonight on five of the six drive to let them to touchdown the only time that he didn't wide receiver fumbled the ball in the red zone. He was great and any saw Jalen hurts..

And even the white hats, they do blow people away and it's kinda like we'll do. I really what I really wanted to. You know, that's something I would really want to experience. I don't know anyway, it's very should watch it. Check it out, see what you think. Maybe I will deal. I'm being it's about the whole thing, but, but I find it very disturbing that very thought that people would want to interact with something that seems like a human being and and treat it that way. And anyway, this this research is encouraging because it seems to indicate against that. Now, are there downsides to this finding offering. So. Yeah, ample. What do you got? Well, if we're that easily manipulated by things that we know are not real, you know how, how difficult would it be to create a bought the conscious and various ways. Right. I mean, and these things already are really have to speculate boss con people all the time internet. So absolutely think about machine learning algorithms. If you've got one focused on getting better and better at getting what it wants out of a human interaction, would you want that on a robot that you're already predisposed to be sympathetic towards? Right because to your point already online, just interacting with them there they can. They can recall kinds of havoc in our lives. Yeah, I think that you might find in person robots equipped with that kind of technology might be really good at getting us to donate the causes that are bogus right, or buying a timeshare in Florida that we don't need, or you know, spending money that we that we don't ever doing all the kind of sleazy.
