"Sneezy for what we're about to talk to you already. Let's do it. Not grumpy. Yes. Yeah. I'm not sneezy. Well. Becky Lynn, Snow White. I don't know. I don't know. I'm not there yet. It's like a cruise ship in the sky. But is it worth maybe paying the extra money for? There's this new. There's a there's a firm that said we're going to redesign the way people fly we're gonna put sports bars dining booze wish shops. On a plane shops planes like a mall in the air. Like kiosks in the sky is on that was islands in the stream. Have that song either? Thank god. I only got. They say playing cabins will resemble a cross between a restaurant sports bar living room and a shop. If a certain British firm gets the go-ahead to design these planes, wouldn't you love to sit on this plane. What do you know that the histamine talking or what? No, no, this is. This is me not being able to imagine do you realize the size, the behemoth of a of something that has to get off the ground and get up to like thirty five thirty eight thousand feet. There's no way in a modern airport could accommodate that kind of that kind of bird. Okay. So you're talking about. I'm talking about just the physics of getting it off the ground. Let's say they get it off the ground in the actually come up with this plan. You don't want to be on it. Now. Now, are you talking about being seated or you talking about walking around in a sports bar and a plane because that scares the crap out I'm not gonna pretend that I'm Peavey mall, or whatever. And walk around going. Oh, we're fine. We're a little bit turbulence. No big. No, no. I would be sitting with my seatbelt. Strap firmly across my your lap my head from my lap. And I I would not want to get up and walk around. And if it's a sports bar on this plane, like go up to the bar stools, are you strap like, right? You have to point harness or if you're walking around the plane, or they're going to have like, you know, when you go on a train or light rail or I don't I don't know anything about. I know I've never go online. You have those bars or those strata held onto right? Would go on Phoenix light rail. You kidding me? Come on seeing. Now, this is an invention light rail hot garbage. This is something new a revolutionize way to travel dining boots shop sports bars. This is what I'm talking about. These would this. They said this would be for a flight like over ten to twelve hours wonderful. So if you're flying, let's say all. Australia or something. Long flight, right? But how how on earth are you going to afford this? How what is the ticket price on where you have shops and a sports bar and all this overhead. Alley and. Sandwiches. Fifty dollars a pop and an exercise station. See why why bother with that? Listen to this. In standard setup mode. It has two seats facing each other with a table in between perfect for meetings or cozy meal for two well that could be a private jet right there, hunting, Lido cunningly the table and seats can be folded away transforming the booth into a quiet place for yoga or prayer. That's not what's going to be used for, you know. Yeah. All right mile here in the second three word. This is where you ruin this now. All right. So I'm just telling you what the people are going to do. You've lost your mind. What is they're not gonna use it for yoga. Let me tell you yoga is fantastic. If it's please I've done it once once and you passed out, I did I passed out. It was hot yoga. And you doing it was hot garbage. Don't steal my lines. I'm just describing the way it was. So if you if if this was affordable, and it was a ten hour flight, and you could get it for. Let's say you're flying here to London, right? Same as British Airways. You wouldn't do it? Yeah. I would if I could afford it. I mean, I can't imagine. What the what the cost of the ticket would be. Okay. I I don't know either. But I can't just do it for one percenters. They I, but there may be enough one percenters who could afford the Concorde Concorde was for one percenters. Right. But then it went away because the overhead was just too much. Are you leaking out of your left nostril? I know what I'm doing. She's would you get a lot. Don't you? Go have a snack get up. Why don't you get a blanket and put it hundred hibernate cheese? All right. We'll continue along if we can. Yeah. Coming up next. You will never guess ever ever. Never ever never what the number one cause of death is at the Grand Canyon. You're also breathing.

"It makes the experience better and more efficient like an Uber or lift not not really no no this app is is about security this app is about the non emergencies that somebody needs to know like that whole comment box. Yeah. Nobody ever reads the comments, so they're taking it into an app form. They're bringing it into today's day and age. So there's going to be an app available for free. All right. Yeah. Apple users. You're going to be able to use this. And then the riders of light rail are going to be able to report in-incident via the app or text message. So which are gonna be able to do is alert security personnel. Something's going down. And then they can respond. So let me get this straight. You gotta drunk passenger on the light rail. Phoenix light rail created an app to help you knock out the homeless people on trains. Okay. Bill drinks on trade has nothing to do with actually being more efficient getting anywhere. They created an app so that you could discreetly secretly complain about things on the train their goal doesn't that say a hell of a lot about train ridership? We need an app so you can secretly complain about the things you don't like on the train the goal, Bruce. And the object is just ridiculous. Atta time is to make everyone have a safe and comfortable ride on the light rail system land. So if somebody is making you uncomfortable. You can discreetly contact security. I would argue that you probably wouldn't be on the light rail. If that was your issue to begin with. The light rail is another boondoggle just a complete boondoggle billions of dollars wasted on something. That is not the way we are going to get around in the future full stop period. What's ridership like on? I've never ridden. The light rail full stop. There you go. But by the way, never will. Well, I live in Gilbert. It doesn't come to Gilbert. There's doesn't go where you are to where you wanna go like for the vast majority of people, but what's ridership Ben like on it, would you mean is a popular do a lot of people use it as ridership and increasing year-over-year no no ridership was actually down is that just a blip on the radar though ridership in buses and light rail. We're both down year over year over year over year. Okay. All right. Well, you say buses I'm glad you brought up buses because this app that discreet, discreet, complain about. What you see on the light rail? Something makes you uncomfortable right now. It's only available on the light rail. I can't complain about the bus soon though, you might. Yup. Yup. They're gonna see how it works on the light rail first. And then wait a second. If you want to discreetly complain about non-emergencies on the bus. Yes, you may be able to do that in the future. Will they have enough people to respond? I mean can't. Okay. So let me get this straight valley metro has created an app for me to complain about things. I see on the train am I to believe that there's like this team like like the seal team six for valley metro and they're standing in an office, and I type in in my non-emergency. There's a spill drink or there's somebody passed out on the train, right? And I hit send on. The app the new app that they've created. And there's somebody's sitting there, and it's like go train five. Are they're going to run out the dog. Geez. You just thought that's not going to while. I have never ridden. The light rail will. I did have to ride in Denver earlier this year. And it was my first time ever. And I've ridden the subway in New York or the metro and DC, but I wrote a light rail in Denver, and it was with my husband and one of his buddies, and they were sitting to the right, and I was sitting across from them on the left doors open guy comes on guy sits right down beside me. He's got blood coming down his arm standard. He's all day on the train some sort of like turning get wrapped, he's bleeding up on something. Like what the heck do? I do. I I wish there was an app for that. You could have reported bleeding guy on. I'm like I to get up and away from this guy. My husband is about ready to pounds. I'm like what is going on? And reason why I took an Uber home, and I didn't get back on investing in trading technology. I I really think that is the wave of the future, by the way, the only people who believe that. Or the folks that sell trains who believe it is a wave of the future should the cardinals are the cardinals. Arizona Cardinals already at the point. That they may have to fire their first year coach. We're going to bring in one of our experts from Arizona's sports next to talk about a miserable cardinals weekend. That's coming up right after Bob McClay checks in with our top stories..

"News. Arizona's news station. KTAR news on ninety two three FM. Bruce St James and Pamela Hughes. So we've got Tempe, Pamela. Announcing that they are going to begin laying track along mill avenue for a new streetcar not to be confused with Phoenix light rail when you see street card, I actually think of like San Francisco like, you know, you hop on the streetcar, and is that what they're doing. Or is it more of a light rail kind of thing? I if I understand it correctly the difference between light rail and streetcar is merely what you choose to call it. That's clear. It's like the difference between an automobile in a car or a vehicle. But I mean, do you understand like when I think of when the is a streetcar streetcar named desire? Yes, you think of you think of San Francisco anyway, not that that's important to this discussion. But I'm trying to like at least paint a visual picture for folks. Driving in their cars right now because here in Phoenix, we are kind of married to our cars and are huge fans of public transportation. The fact nobody rides a lot of it in Tempe is getting a variety of different funds and grants and partnerships to come up with the two hundred million dollar streak card other streetcar is going to run three miles. It's going to loop through downtown Tempe right around the university their head up Rio Solano Parkway over to Apache boulevard and down ash avenue. Okay. Hoping to ease. Some traffic congestion taking up lanes. For streetcars Snorrasson, some more development. Yes. Because everyone's going to come to get on the end of the streetcar and write it through the rest of the it's it's you love this idea. Don't you? It's asinine. It's just as asinine as the as the light rail argument, and I have a fundamental argument for this condiment. Condiment? Argument whatever you wanna call light rail, streetcar, or whatever you want to refer to it as. Trains of which these are all fit into the can we acknowledged during the train category. Family of vehicles trains. I think totally then. Schratt going along. We need to point b they can't go wherever you want. Eighteen ninety eight thousand nine hundred ninety year eighteen ninety five how was that year? Awesome for I gotta tell you. They were they were chugging along. And and you know, what people were using trains to get everywhere. As a matter of fact might have been the only way to get anywhere, and then we evolved, and then we moved forward we invented things. Like, oh, the automobile automobiles airplanes a variety of other ways to get around that don't involve trains..

Leveraged finance group at associated? Bank rod good morning welcome back to? The opening bell thanks good morning Steve? You're all smiles this morning like a lot of folks you must be very happy with the way things are going with the economy right now right now nothing to complain about on the present state what's the future look. Like are, the unknowns and the uncertain pieces what are people happy about right now Unemployment or lack thereof the GDP numbers were obviously. Strong you still have some? Availability of credit that is in a? An abundance and you know in general You can't find something. That you can point to and say gee it's going to turn tomorrow, it's just yeah, tomorrow's tomorrow As we speak the Federal Reserve decision has just. Been. Down no new rate hike? This, time around but they still say we're on track for. One every couple of months right how would that impact things well I think that the markets have already built that in so unless there's a change in their either the verbiage that's behind. The, rate increases or or something happens that they increase it by more or less than what the markets are currently predicting otherwise I. Think that the yield curve has built that into both the. Both the market in the interest rate sensitivity and the pricing I bet you? Get. To talk. With. Some CEO's on occasion what are they telling you about their long range plans and their long-range. Concerns shirt CEO's CFO's right, the c. suite their their long range plans are that they. Are talking about. Spending more money they are looking. At a they are looking at, continuing best invest, in their own businesses that's really great so those are the, good, pieces their concerns are the. Labor market, especially, if they're Serving the skilled in under skilled labor market. That there's a big shortage, right now you know to find help because of what we. Just talked about. On the unemployment rate is so. Low everybody that wants a job, pre much has Are there any solutions for that the rest of. The crowd that maybe out there that we. Could pull from for employment is retraining is it are there other solutions that. We can find you get, more people working. And there's, been some interesting things in talking to to your point some some. Of our clients is different things one, is you're seeing, apprenticeship programs come back and you're seeing them look hard it just their overall wage peace and emirate I mean we all we all work for a reason which is a. Living so looking hard at what the wages the wage growth and it was one of the things. We didn't, touch on that. Hasn't grown at the pace at the cheap s. so those are some things that, they're, doing more creative something that we've seen that I think is is also brilliant is going back to the co ops I mean. Think, about you I are close to the same age about how popular the co-op system. Was for, again invest in our young people and and get them interested and get them skilled and looking. For a skill at a younger age yeah Let's talk? About a couple of topics that we've been following we've had conversations before? Here on the thought leader about syntax financial tech firms financial technical. Firms or the technology financial technology and this. New report says that the mid west is is increasingly the place where they. Are coming to to start, up to plant. Their seeds, and grow that's kind of exciting that is exciting and we'll touch. On there was an article just this, week as well, from the treasury department that is really going to feed this in a little bit more but yeah in the mid west there's a cost of living component that's down there's. Definitely a talent pool here in the mid west people are here and people want to be here. So the, fact that it's. Coming in or or they're starting in a little more is is that's bullish where, the, issue is is on the capital that's what they need to do and as we read in that article there's a plentiful venture. Capital But seventy five. Percent of it is centered and three, states California New York Massachusetts And we've heard too just outside of fintech a lot of startups complaining. About this that the? Money, in the midwest doesn't, seem to be, as plentiful elsewhere how does that change well you know. The again, the treasury. Department what they, just released this week. That could change things you know we'll see I think, they they released eighty recommendations some of which will could help, spur, that including, some The ability to regulate or other things deregulate kind of calling it I think the term. That, they used is creating. A sandbox for these fintech startups so that's a way you could change it still could, have some issues with the state's. On certain components of that on what the states are going to fight it but a few of. These things of the. Eighty what number of them go through that might open, up some capital and open up some growth in the fintech space rod hang on. With us we're gonna continue with rod Murray. Here on the thought leader conversation on the opening bell Thursday. Edition, of our. Program continues but. First we need to take. A quick break to check traffic and a couple of.
