What Every Business Owner Needs to Know About Healthcare with Saul Marquez
"Saul say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know fire nation is a pleasure to be here and I know all of you are on fire. I'm on fire to John. One thing that most people don't know is that I went through the J. L. D. podcasting Boob Ham. I invested in your last kickstarter book campaign and spent some valuable time with you and kate over in Puerto Rico. And let me just tell you? I'm putting everything in the practice and I am on fire The podcast is rocking on all cylinders. And I'm excited to share some of the things we're a healthcare focus podcast and now a media company Happy to share the areas of success that we've had the challenges but most importantly you know the the the opportunities for for your listeners. That are that are Providing healthcare benefits to them their employees or to themselves how to be smart about it so appreciate the The opportunity to be here John and excited for our time together. We'll I'm fired up because it really feels like a full circle moments to me because like when I saw your name come across when I offered up the day with jail D. I was like yeah well. I'm spending a day with this guy. He's cool. We know we got on our little pre call all right. This is going to be a fun day. He came down to Puerto Rico. We had a great time. Just made it happen from morning 'til nights in you know when that happens. Fire nation invest in yourself at that level. Because let's just be honest a day with jail de ain't cheap. I just knew that saw was going to go off and do some great things. Of course he is doing and I just really love that whole process of seeing somebody come down here form. Just the concept of what they're going to create and then go off actually creates awesomeness. And as I mentioned in the intro. Today we're GONNA be talking all about what you need to know about healthcare and how it can literally make or break your business fire nation because one thing when I was going over. You know what we're going to chat about today. Saw The blew me away is that the healthcare economy is three point. Four not million not billion trillion dollars in you found a way to grow your business by tapping into this. So how have you done that? And how can fire nation maybe get a little pieces of Pie to John? A great way to start this trillion with a t fire nation. So the thing that matters here is that so one day I was So by the way. Three years into the PODCAST. I've done over five hundred interviews so cool. I've had an incredible experience and through the process. Have become a thought leader in the in the healthcare space in one of my interviews With Gavin Tayo. He's a venture capitalist in in healthcare devices Wellness he he. He helped me realize this insight John and fire nation. That healthcare is an economy. It's not just a vertical. It's three point four trillion dollars. And and here's the deal. There's three things you have to know about it. And it's riddled with opportunity. It's that number one. It's highly inefficient. Their silos everywhere. And it's highly complex so so with these three things in mind you have to understand with highly inefficient systems. There's an opportunity for you to simplify. And if you are not in healthcare. Think about what. Your solution is whether you be in digital marketing or it or software. Think about the solution that you have today. There's an opportunity for us that and purpose it for healthcare The silos that exist everywhere. That's an area that I was able to tap into and and add value so not only is data silos from hospitals to clinics to to public healthcare institutions. The communication is silent. Nobody talks to anybody and when I started the the PODCAST and Alan over with John to learn how to do it like a master I was able to actually Bring back some some some massive improvements in the way that health care leaders share their information their best practices now. Everybody taps into the outcomes rocket the outcomes rocket podcast is the name of my podcast to find out what's going on in healthcare and and I mean today as I said over. Five hundred interviews. Wow are we nowhere near the site of John's of course but we're doing fifty thousand plus downloads a month job. And it's so niche though. I mean that's what I love. Is that area fifty thousand downloads. A month on apart. Gas In that Niche. That you've carved out for yourself is equivalent to hundreds of thousands of listens a month in a vigor niche and. That's why I always tell people that. Let me listen to my podcast level. I'm like well. It all depends like if you're doing a ballet podcast just for people that do do ballet. Then guess what a hundred listeners per episode could be a wonderful business because now you have such a core audience right there. There's tuning in specifically in that. Little tiny niche. So the Richardson. The niches obviously three point four trillion dollars. Which is the healthcare economy is not this tiny niche. But just he's focus on healthcare. He's not just like I'm going to interview successful entrepreneurs I've done fire nation which worked by the way back in two thousand twelve. He launched a podcast here in two thousand nineteen. And beyond. When you're listening to this. I mean you've really got to choose something and go with it and that's why when saw was down here in Puerto Rico. I was like dude. You're got his rights like you need to become the person in this niche in this vertical in this industry. He's done that in three years. And five hundred plus episodes and he keeps on going and one thing before I pass it back over to you so I want to mention because you use this word master fire nation. Every single master was a disaster. I was a disaster. I saw was disaster. Every human being was a disaster before they were a master. So when you're hearing salt talk about getting a piece of this three before trillion dollars and you're like but I don't even have a clue yet. We'll of course you yet because you're a disaster right now in that area because you haven't done anything but you will become a massive by putting the work by putting the time by listening to people like myself and Saul who are doing things in our respective niches so saul takeaway brother. Yeah Yeah and just to add to that John is is the when I when when I first sat down with you remember being in the in the in your living room white boarding you blew my mind with funnels. You blew my mind with that with batching. I mean all these things I'm doing now and and I'll be honest with you. Most people think I'm crazy. They're like you're not you're doing four to five episodes a week you're nuts and I'll be honest Because of the time we spent together. I'm like you know what I mean. I'm doing a great job but there's more could be done. There's this crazy friend of mine his name. And what's crazy about that? Those soldiers to break in for a second is people. Louis assume on the busiest person the world they always say that. And I'm like I hate to break. It's because this might like kind of make you feel a little bit bad but I am so not busy like today. I'm really busy. I am doing like seven. Am to nine PM. I'm working essentially every day. I have multiple working every hour multiple multiple interviews back to backs. But this is the one day this week that I'm putting in any kind of work like this. The other four five six days this week I literally have this open schedule worship me creating doing what I WANNA do. Exercising on the pelt on the talking about during our pre interview chat like so you can produce like Saul produces you can produce content like I produce on this high quantity level without killing yourself. You just gotTa have these batching situations that we're talking about you can have the system to the automation that again take time. It's going to be a disaster for your first but over time you can become a master. So salt back to you rather. Yeah no it's great great great Chad and and you know so so as we as we discuss Podcast and I think we'll John because this is a lot of fun. Now we'll go back and forth from podcast And the business stuff and the healthcare stuff. If that's cool with you definitely awesome so so really you know taking a dip back into the into the healthcare. You know your your your employees health benefits. They keep rising your personal benefits. Keep Rising I. I had a partnership with the with the benefits company that I met through an interview on the podcast It turned into a business partnership and I and I learned through that partnership the nature of the insurance business and and I was. I was flabbergasted number one Because and it's an honest there's truth here so so just so you know the nature is that healthcare in the US is a business insurance in the US is a business businesses seek to grow and that means that your costs are GonNa rise as a consumer of them. And if you if you if you think about it for a second you know. There are a large portion of hospitals in the United States that are publicly owned companies insurance companies that are publicly owned companies and the way that that they improve their revenue and profits is by reducing costs and increasing their revenue which is your premiums and the costs that it costs all of us to get healthcare.

Plans To Develop High-Tech 'Smart City' In Toronto Met With Resistance
"In Toronto a plan to develop waterfront property along Lake Ontario is meeting resistance the area is supposed to become a so called smart city with high tech sensors and data collectors baked into the infrastructure as David McGovern reports many in Canada's biggest city are concerned about the company chosen to develop the site the company's name is sidewalk labs that may not ring a bell but it's a spin off of a corporation whose name is much more instantly recognizable Google here's prime minister Justin Trudeau announcing the plan to develop the twelve acre block of public lands called key side on Toronto's Lake Ontario waterfront back in twenty seventeen a world leader in Irvine innovation sidewalk labs will create a test bed for new technologies in kisai technologies will help us build smarter greener more inclusive cities which we hope to see scaled across to Rogers eastern waterfront and eventually in other parts of Canada and around the world just the shape and is the sidewalk labs director of urban design and digital innovation he's especially excited about the green aspects of the project like plans to build the world's tallest timber buildings soaring thirty five story curve structures of glass and high density would in the benefits of that are that stealing concrete which is the primary materials for buildings there are some of the most significant contributors to greenhouse gas emissions would itself obviously renewable resource in itself actually embodied carbon innovative plans also include roads and sidewalks made of modular concrete slabs fitted with heating systems to melt snow and ice and the project involves thousands of monitors sensors and cameras on streets inside buildings and embedded in the infrastructure the monitoring of people's movements is intended to improve the efficiency of traffic flow energy use garbage collection and more so we're concerned about creating essentially a neighborhood in the city that's fundamentally based on a model of surveillance friend McPhail is a lawyer with the Canadian civil liberties association it is suing to block the development saying it is full of potential privacy breach is that violate Canadian constitutional rights particularly because betting technologies if the infrastructure that people don't have any choice about whether or not they're there don't have any control over what date it is or isn't being collected and have no meaningful way to consent to the information being collected bill says the only way to prevent that from happening is to completely avoid going to that part of the city she says that's just not fair but just the chiffons of sidewalk labs says this project is not about data harvesting or surveillance that's just not the business that we're in there's only data collected when it is truly in service of achieving a public benefit for example he says if there are sensors to improve pedestrian safety that would all be collected by the city of Toronto and since its initial proposal sidewalk labs has made a number of concessions including agreeing to hand over any of the data it collects to a government agency for safe keeping Torben widgets who heads the community organization block sidewalks remain skeptical the notion that we allow will sister company access to publicly owned land in the city of Toronto and allow them to develop you know new forms of delivering the services I think it's something that sort of strikes a nerve among a lot of people in front of so many people that the final approval date for the development has just been pushed from March until may this year to allow for more public

The Dublin Digital Identity Project
"For this week's podcast. We'll be discussing discussing the very interesting project called the Dublin Digital Identity Project and I'm very pleased to have doug McCullough chief information officer her for the city of Dublin in Ohio USA. Doug thank you for joining us today. Could you please give our listeners. Quick introduction on yourself sure so my name is Doug McCullough chief information officer for the city of Dublin Ohio. It is a small city really a suburb on the North West Corner of Columbus Ohio which is in the middle of the state I am a private sector guy and I may government guy. I've worked for four different state of Ohio agencies and two cities in the united estates and I really love municipalities into innovation into smart cities. I'm into smart ability obviously into blockchain. A it just really interested in sort of emerging technologies and how I can help public sector organizations integrate them into their daily operations Excellent excellent and I think also inside you're going to be able to share with our audience later in this podcast so straight off the bat as it has cost me here in Intra entre blocks. Could you please explain to our listeners. What is blockchain? And how does it work. Well I'm sure that many have gone before me and failed. I probably will fail as well and I take no credit for getting it right but I will say that I can tell you what it is to me and from my perspective because this is one of the most simple technologies while also being one of the most complex and I don't want to oversimplify it but you Kinda have to a small Description I see. blockchain obtain is a technology infrastructure innovation that combines existing technologies like databases peer to peer networks encryption distributed computing algorithms to form a different way of distributing compute data storage and data security so in its most basic form it works by recording pieces pieces of data into structures. We've taken to calling blocks. The definition of these structures is such that they exist within a chain in that if they do not not come after another block or not part of another block they by definition do not exist. This structural definition allows the existence of a block to carry certain certain cities simply by the fact that they exist in other words to bear Fi. The data of a block one needs to verify its position in a chain that contains other defined blocks each addition to this chain makes the entire structure more and more difficult to invalidating. But if you did and there is a press process process for invalidating a chain the fact that a change to this basic infrastructure would invalidate the whole further makes scenario more trustworthy so that certainly is over technical and quite possibly wrong But the important thing to me and from my perspective is that as an infrastructure it is superior to other databases databases networks or distributing distributed computing models for certain uses and the High find it to be superior for is data transactions injections not necessarily data storage but data transactions. What happened when where and with perfect while if this was was an incorrect or definition what correct one is so thank you so much for that it was it was really good definition? I'm GonNa will definitely always As he knows. So well you know. There are many different schools of thought when it comes to blockchain and different tribes who who liked to defend their view of it right so so could you tell us a little bit about the city of Dublin and just in our Irish listeners where referring here to the city of Dublin in Ohio USA. Not Dublin. Orlands so I love to hear more about your lovely city. There are folks in Ohio. We know Dublin wealth and the rest of the world who have heard about it but for a lot of the world people people are like. I don't know what you're talking about. Here's a bunch of Dublin's in the United States as well But as I said we're a small community of around fifty thousand and up apply. Some years ago started along the path towards innovation through fiber optics in developing one of the first publicly-owned city owned fiber optic networks networks. And so we're kind of a techno-centric kind of a place that has embraced using technology to advance its economic development interests from air. We've been kind of a leader or innovator when it comes to smart cities up whether it be a sitting next to smart Columbus on being part of that same region or being being a part of the Intelligence Communities Forum in which we compete and go for awards where that is the city has an institute the Global Institute for the study the of the intelligence community to help share some of what we've learned about intelligent communities in smart city development and derive more from around the world and share those lessons since with other communities so we kind of want to be a conduit and in a light in showing how communities can use technology to improve the lives absorb their citizens. And that's kind of our brand at this point. I mean it's fascinating because you know just to remind him what the point is said of the city of fifty thousand people and you are quite forefront of developing new technology and. I'm sharing your best practice. What you've learned for me you know you sound very much like a city similar to Silicon Valley and also what is amazing because as it is a subject of our podcast that you've managed to develop a digital identity project based blockchain technology? Why how did your city managed to get to this point to be so tax heavy? Well well there are a few advantages and a few good moves some investments that the city of Dublin made that strategically placed us in a different position. So if there's there's any other cities out there listening you'll recognize some of this first of all. We did introduce me as a chief information officer. and honestly if you're not a very large arch city like a Boston or New York or Los Angeles or Atlanta or a London. You don't have a chief information officer you have an. It director director whose job it is to keep the technology running. Not necessarily to envision. What's next in what's new and so- Dublin Did that they invested in that in part because we're small there's less to run and there's a lot of innovation happening here in our region. We've got a great research institution Asian in in Ohio University and the Ohio State University. And there's just a lot of resources here that make it possible for us to do it. But if you're another city Anderson later saying it. We're not doing that it in part. It's because it's difficult for a city to hire someone in give them that job so hello. Dublin is benefiting from brilliant brilliant now so you've developed a digital identity project based on blockchain technology. What problem were you looking to address? This is interesting Because I WANNA put you in your listeners in the in the stance of considering what a city is we tend to look look at cities and say Stay in your lane plows. Snow Mow the grass. Fix The potholes and cut my taxes. And I'll be happy happy. And we don't think about all the various services and things that a city doesn't in has been doing but if cities do not innovate than we are going to be disrupted roughed it just like any other business. If he didn't think that the United States post office could be disrupted and of course. It is being disrupted because we always thought that we will deliver letters in boxes and Amazon changed all that you know taxes are being disrupted. Everybody's being disrupted cities can be disrupted and I think that that could be devastating for us. So it's my job to try and stay ahead of that and to continue to. Innovate we are candidates for innovation. Just like anybody else. I do believe that there's going to be a new distributed data environment just as the web changed to everything Blockchain the distributed data environment is going to change everything and we don't want to get caught off guard We were concerned about and remained concerned about preparing for kind of leaner government. government As it is now may not look the way. It is automation boxer. We're subject to impact by those as well. So what happens if we have far fewer people in a lot more automation. They're a how're we going to build the service model that serves people I mentioned you know sort of a digital disruption Russian of government just like anybody else right. Now I'm out in the Wilderness crying about this. Nobody believes it but I think we're going to see it happen Also mentioned sort of a declining in degrading trust in a sort of a more dangerous data privacy in firemen for people and we expect this to have but negative impact on citizens in public transactions. If we don't prepare for that Mrs all before thinking about blockchain as a potential solution But then also generally just as a person who uses technology I desire new level control or autonomy Regarding my data and I think that cities are local governments or even national governments can play a role in providing that security and privacy to citizens perhaps through some sort of a service but then finally there's a huge amount of pressure for cities to become smart cities to become programmable to use data to make decisions and I'm afraid that we're all gonna run into a big brick wall if we can't identify people or other private things that need to be identified in order to program around them We're all very excited about cars. Driving down the street being automated but if we don't have a mechanism for identity that's going to be a problem so should have government Create a new identity Regime I feel that blockchain gives a lot of control and privacy obviously back to citizens so that if we do need to program aspects of our lives that we would control of privacy back into citizens hands Eh.
Microgrids can help us be more energy resilient
"There is for the moment of brief respite in California from blackouts imposed by the state's biggest utility. PG Anne and from dangerous fire weather are but climate change means extreme fire seasons are the new normal PGA has said it could take a decade to upgrade it's infrastructure so it's less likely to spark deadly fires on Thursday. The utility reported a one point six billion dollar loss in the third quarter related to fire charges and a group of California mayors think thank. PGE should be turned into a publicly owned cooperative utility. But what if the answer in California and elsewhere is just to get off the grid or for for utilities to split up into lots of smaller micro grids. That's the topic for this week's Quality Assurance David Roberts covers climate change and energy for vox micro grid is a little miniature grid that can at least temporarily cut itself off from the larger grid in the case of a blackout or something like that and micro grids sort sort of can manage You know there can be lots of different resources. Within a micro grid there can be your rooftop. Solar panels on homes or businesses their home batteries. Like the Tesla Power Wall basically becomes a miniature utility of its own and there are communities in California installing these things already because they have a lot of benefits even outside of emergency power but obviously now the interest in these things is spiking in California and you see you know lots of like solar companies. He's in battery. Companies just being inundated with requests for the stuff. Let's the long-term business impact of that if you start to see this grid grid defection at a high level whether it's individuals or entire communities does that really reduce reliance on utility and frankly could weaken weakened even more well yes. The basic tension here is that investor owned utilities like PG any make their money by investing in things so they invest in grid infrastructure and then they get a guaranteed rate of return on those investments so naturally they want to invest best in grid infrastructure. Right that's where they make their bones but micro grids and sort of local power reduce reliance on this this big centralized grid which puts them sort of directly at odds with the financial interests of investor owned utilities as currently constituted. So we're in this situation now. Where the interests of California communities in becoming more self reliant In terms of electrical power is just sort of by structure. Structurally at odds with the interests of the big utility and that tension needs to be resolved are their existing utilities or states or cities that you know of that have that structure that are more open to this kind of micro grid and or different compensation instructor idea sure. I mean this conversation about investor owned utilities and how to restructure their incentives is going on all over the country. This is a huge hot topic in the energy world even even before this sort of interesting to kind of come out in the open and watch the public to engage in it but yes it's called performance based East Regulation Pbr's acronym and the whole idea. Is You tie compensation to performance metrics. Like how much renewables have you integrated or how how much Heating of you electrified and the utility performs against those metrics and has variable compensation depending on how it's doing so there are experiments in that kind of thing going on in New York in Massachusetts and other states. It's not a completely new thing but California for all its sort of reputation as kind of a cutting edge state in terms of its utility utility structures. It's very old fashioned very sort of behind the times in these things so it would be a scramble to do it now. Can Technology help here. Could Apple use some of its hoard to create a really good-looking home solar battery restorage energy storage system so there are very sophisticated systems available now. What's needed now is just bulq? which drives the costs down right? We need the market to be able to scale up efficiencies of scale will will set in naturally. So that's where California could step in right now. Just like set a couple of billion dollars aside aside for subsidies for vulnerable and low income homeowners to afford these systems. That seems to me like just a no brainer. The very first thing California. You should do David. Roberts writes about energy and climate change at
California Governor Threatens State Takeover of PG&E
"Governor Gavin Newsom is now threatening P. Jeannie with the possibility of taking over a V. utility if it doesn't emerge from bankruptcy next year with the strength and planned for safety this KCBS is keeping Coney reports even before the latest threat many were already calling for big changes to the utility so should we take P. Jeannie public or maybe make it into a customer owned co op or perhaps we should shave off portions of the grade to be run locally all of these ideas have been very seriously considered in recent weeks I think it's critically important to get the management and culture of the organization right seven born scene is the faculty director at the energy institute at UC Berkeley's Haas school of business but I also don't think that we are going to magically solve this problem by simply going to a publicly owned utility he cautions that many public utilities actually have pretty lousy safety track records meantime he also warns that if some cities do take control of their own grades that could leave more expensive of rural areas in a difficult situation that creates some real equity issues with easy solutions in short supply P. genie is expected to meet with stakeholders at a meeting called for by the governor in the coming week
The Future Of PG&E
"A new wildfire has broken out in southern California in San Bernadino where officials ordered evacuations in the middle of the night as that brush fire quickly grew to a Gulf hundreds of acres the massive king K. fire in northern California is up to sixty percent contained but that first been burning for more than a week and has damaged or destroyed more than three hundred structures as we continue to follow these wildfires were taken to ask about the future of the company it could be on the hook for the Kincaid fire California's biggest utility Pacific gas and electric or P. Jeannie California governor Gavin Newsom once Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway to make a bid for the company which filed for bankruptcy earlier this year and the city of San Jose is proposed a public takeover of its lower local power system from P. Jeannie but would that look like and what it bring relief to Californians anxious about a future where wildfires are predicted to get even more severe seven born stain is professor at the Haas school of business at the university of California Berkeley director of the energy institute at Haas professor welcome thank you so let's start with San Jose the mayor there wants to make PGA any a nonprofit customer owned utility this model is out there you know publicly owned utilities as well as co ops but P. Jeannie would be the country's largest customer owned utility if this happens would you think this will work and how would it work well I think the first thing we have to recognize is that this isn't going to change anything over the next year or two California is facing severe wildfire risk and we have system that is not been maintained well enough so when these heavy winds command they're starting fires and none of that is addressed by the potential sale of P. Jeannie or reforming and into any other type of utility well in you mention these big wins a lot of these big winds blow branches on two wires P. Jeannie utility wires that are above ground and they spark fires in that way and there's some anger we understand because you know utilities in California until for years but those wires underground so when you say it's not going to be changed immediately well you know unless all the wires go underground or or these areas are better maintain you know the freshest cut back in the trees trimmed by the utility companies things are going to be pretty much the same is that what you're saying well utilities there has been some discussion of underground in but it would be massively expensive way but there are many other things they could do to reduce the risk of wildfire better vegetation management around the line so there fewer trees that can blow in the lines hardening degree at one of the major fire started when a tower just collapsed in the wind and better monitoring so that there are technologies that as soon as the line breaks and the powers no no longer flowing it automatically shuts the power off even before the line hits the ground so all of those can be used as well as just better visual monitoring for wildfires to reduce the risk of the sort of wildfires and particularly to reduce their growing into massive destructive wild so back to these plans and the mayor of San Jose wanting to make it a non profit customer owned company you know will that change any of these major problems you've described I don't think it will necessarily chain we do have a problem at P. Jeannie and we need better management that's more focused on safety that may come to a for profit and make them through a non profit neither is a magic bullet it's easy to come up with examples of utilities that are non profits and have done a very bad job for instance rape the Puerto Rican utility that really was a disaster after the hurricane is a publicly owned utility and they're also some pretty good investor owned utilities so I don't think either is an ideal model it's a question of who the management is and what the culture of the company is one of the issues that's come up is originally San Francisco and San Jose both proposed cutting off they are part of the system and just making that into a public utility and the problem with that is there are large parts of P. Jeannie territory like paradise that burned that are being subsidized by the more urban areas and nobody's going to want to be the public utility or the investor owned utility for those rural areas if their stand alone well that raises other questions people who want a public takeover point out that as a non profit P. Jeannie wouldn't have to pay federal taxes or the shareholder dividends and that would mean it it would devote more money to these infrastructure upgrades do you think that's a possibility well it's a possibility but there are lots of for profit companies that do in this business who do have a good safety culture so I don't think it necessarily follows and even a nonprofit company has a cost of raising capital they still have to pay interest on the bonds there are some tax advantages to being non profit but most of our economy is made up of for profit companies because we think that actually helps the incentives for reducing costs and maintaining reliability so I don't think it's necessarily going to solve the problem the real shin is can a government agency essentially that was running the grid do a better job than having a private company do
Central District eviction sparks anti-gentrification protests

To the private development. So I if I was going to try part of this has to do with something called the capital improvement board. And some of the ways things are set up here the stadium itself, even though it was built by by you guys ends up being the property of us. That's the skin in the game. Your putting into this talking to our saw Ozdemir owner of the Indy. Eleven the head of the keystone group. That's the skin in the game. That's the twist that you're putting into this. You guys are going to build it. But the stadium then goes to basically, we the people becomes part of us, and is managing trolled that way, and you want part of the tax revenue of that to be able to cover those those stadium needs. And that's what the state is looking for as well. Correct. So the taxes that is gonna be generated to build a stadium public stadium will be from the private investment that we will do that currently doesn't exist.

"This smile knowing that dad is hugging, Robin. And holding moms hand again. So farewell, forty one. And now we move forward. Of observations. First of all it is. I think an interesting reflection on character to see how people behave in that kind of situation. And I say this because I watched the behavior of Hillary, Rodham Clinton and thought, wow, bitter, bitter bitter. I'll bet she could not put her ego aside her disappointment at losing the presidency. In two thousand sixteen aside for this event and behave and a grownup, and courteous fashion. To watch her ignore Malania. And then ignore the president as each of them offer their hand to her. Was just I think a reflection on who she is as a human being. And. They're thinking I'm so close to the presidency. So close sitting with all these ex presidents and with Donald Trump, I got so close and that bitterness and that anger showed through and she couldn't even put a good face on it and say, basically, look I lost. But we're here to be respectful of a man who has died, no, matter or policy differences. We're here to give a final farewell. And she decided instead to be Hillary. And for those of you who think that she would have been a better president. I ask you please to consider her behavior yesterday. Because if there's if there's anything that would define petty in that kind of circumstance, I would think this would be right up there on the list. Don't you? The other news from the Clintons by the way is so far half of the events for the stadium tour biller Bill and Hillary Clinton have been cancelled half of them. Both of the two of the four events. Cancel were in the US the conversations over to audiences were both in Canada. Advance ticket sales was ensure land for Sherwin Texas last night. There were so dismal. The prices were slashed by ninety percent nine zero percent now after all. Eighty three percent of the seats in Toronto were empty. Sugarland gig was cancelled must've been face-saving we've described as postponed in order to attend funeral services for president George H W Bush the funeral honoring the forty I was taking place yesterday. It takes around three hours to fly to Houston from Washington DC. I suspect the Clintons contract with live nation. Does not have them flying. Commercial soy post-presidential departure from the very nice executive terminal terminal at their Sugarland airport, which is very pleasant into Reagan national would have given them a full night's sleep before attending the state funeral. They chose not to do this. So with all the American sites so far cancelled the presentation Las Vegas was cancelled without explanation. There was no skews for that one. It's possible that the entire tour or certainly up to half of it's going to be deep sex. It's kind of a mercy killing me the contract between the Clintons and the tour promoter live nation, which is a polar company over ten billion dollars a year in sales is confidential. I don't know if they have a guaranteed minimum compensation. Pretty safe guess that poor attendance and deep discounts for ticket prices mean the tours losing money for live nation. And it's not cheap to rent auditory hire staff provide security charter jets for the Clintons and make sure they have just the right color jelly beans, or whatever it is. They want in their green room. So how much money will it publicly owned company willing to lose in order for the Clintons to save face? Now that they're both very unlikely to ever see the Oval Office except as tourists. So on the Upper West side of Manhattan, you have the beacon theater. The beacon is scheduled to be next that is an April so months from now in April. And brimstone survive but watch for continuing cancellations because after this rather small venue in New York, the beacon theater, then you have some larger. Places like Philadelphia. The Boston opera house of the Seattle. Wamu theater the forum in Los Angeles, which is larger houses, they if they through this tour, which ends purportedly in may of next year. If through this tour. They continue to see losses. Like, this is of course, embarrassing for them. Embarrassing for the entire political left. Many of whom simply want Hillary to go away. Please just go away. Please stop, please. You're not going to be the nominee twenty twenty. You are very much yesterday's newspaper. You're good for covering the bottom of birdcage. And that's about it. But their egos. I think are going to be difficult to deal with my bet is that the tour is cancelled due to. Medical issues or family concerns. One of those are more kinds of things that Hillary realizes she has to cure, more people's pneumonia. So she'll be escorting them into Chelsea's home. So they can play with Hillary's grandchild for an hour afterwards, there will be cured which is what she did during the campaign. Just an hour is amazing. She's she's a miracle woman. She's all about it. So there you have it the Clinton stadium tour going bust and live nation because it is a publicly traded company. They won't discuss exactly how much these people are being paid. However their books will be available sooner or later because they are a publicly traded company. The shareholders want to see how much money was made on these things at the very least you're gonna have bullet points. Well on live nation. The stones did this much money. We have step off the there were earth this much money and Bill and Hillary world they lost money, but gosh, darn it. It was so swell to him along so swell along. So there you have it. Hillary being Hillary yesterday. And for those who have any interest whatsoever. In hearing what she had to say they're going to have to retool that whole tour in order to give them a chance to have any audience whatsoever. It does not break, my heart to see this happen. Not at all. It does not break, my heart, so far they've cancel Vegas. Cancelled the. Sugarland Texas smart financial center. They did of the Scotia arena in Toronto. That's the one that I believe they had only seventeen percent of the seats filled. How they did Monreale. What are now we go to the beacon theater in New York, and that is next April. And I hope not to have to say Hillary very much between on them. And I hope to be able to be on Mike when they cancel. So I can cackle. Uncontrollably. Some kind of unpleasant kettle because she deserves a chemical from each of us. Kevin is in his car. He is I got this morning on talk radio. Six eighty WCBS. Good morning. Bruce. I just wanna make a quick comment. Us here response. I wanted to urge all fellow conservative. Support Hillary store go there, even if the Democrats won't show up because we need Hillary Clinton ruling in twenty twenty s a guaranteed. Trump win. Thanks. I see the point you're making. I think that the the twenty twenty election is going to be somebody probably two or three generations younger than her. But yeah, I think there's some logic to that thanksgiving. Appreciate the call four one zero WCBS eighty those are my observations on yesterday's events. No matter what you feel about George H W Bush's policies while in office. Yesterday was handled with style. And it was not a John McCain was not take the opportunity during the funeral ceremony to attack Donald Trump. It was not a Paul Wellstone which turned into a democrat rally of of Minnesota when that guy dot heavily years ago. This was restrained appropriate completely appropriate. I think that's the best where to use. It was completely appropriate. Some of the tributes to him from Simpson from his son were truly wonderful and the crowd behaved in a marvelous fashion the congregation with the exception of Hillary Clinton who really couldn't be bothered.

And the Bob says have you ever seen a guilty person? Have I contact with a rightful person? Yeah. I think you're gonna read that way. I do glory isn't stevensville, Gloria good morning. Are you? I disagree with your comment about Hillary. I think she's like tonight we were watching a different picture of her. I mean, I did see I did see somewhat of a smile and even in Bill I thought. What a smile I mean. I don't I don't get that. You're so it was an obvious. Facto, Hillary style. I just didn't get that. Did you see when Trump's came in and sat down? I did I am. I am now. Like, I said, it's you know, I think so you saw her deliberately ignore the president refuse to return refused to offer her hand when he offered when he offered his you saw her decide to not shake hands with Malania, although everybody else narrow the Obamas. Everybody else, they all were cordial and collegial, and you still think somehow that she behaved appropriately, I don't think he behaved appropriately. I think we have to give her the benefit that that she did aknowledge, and it was probably in her mind. She was intending to be not to be cordial. But she was intending to be extending. And maybe it just didn't work out or something. You know, you have to give her the benefit in this case. I don't that. I think it was a deliberate snub. And I think that it's right to call her on it. I think it is simply a reflection of who she is. And that's that's my observation is is there are others on that row. Who would have worn some ill-will toward Donald Trump the Bush family, they're over it. They're fine that they were cordially him that Obama took a number of body shots from Donald Trump over the years. They exchanged greetings, both Michelle and bologna us at hi to each other and so forth. And so on it came only the Hillary to see the kind of discourtesy than I think we saw yesterday.

But are we too late to the party from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Kimberly Adams in four Molly would. If you're shopping for holiday tech, you'll probably see a bunch of devices being marketed as five G ready five G is the next generation of super fast internet, but it needs infrastructure. More bandwidth for streaming videos games and connecting the ever-growing internet of things. The Federal Communications Commission is trying to open up that bandwith by auctioning off little used parts of publicly owned airwaves portions that may not have been useful for three or four G, but are now in high demand FCC Commissioner, Jessica Rosenthal explains. Why well what's really cool about these airwaves and this spectrum is it's high band spectrum? And that means it has a lot of capacity for broadband, though, that capacity is limited because the propagation characteristics of this spectrum are not that great. And what that means is. Is that we can pump lots of video on lots of activity over it. It's just the signal won't carry very far. But that's a new mix of technologies that were exploring with five G, and I'm excited to see it in market and at use in any kind of transition to a new technology. There are winners and losers as you're watching the results of this auction come in are you seeing kind of who's coming out on top. And and who may be losing out. Well, we don't have the results all in yet. But one of the things that I think we have to be mindful of is that we can't just sat aside. Our wireless airwaves for licensed uses sold at auction. We also have to keep some airwaves unlicensed and most people don't know what unlicensed airwaves are they might sound illicit or legal. But in fact, those are the airwaves were WI fi takes place. So we all use them every day kind of public property in the skies. And we gotta make sure that as we push more of our wireless airwaves to market. We keep some for unlicensed in WI fi as well. Some other countries have already done this are we behind where we should be in picking up this technology and rolling it out. I think we're at risk of falling behind, you know, the United States lead in the last generation of wireless technology known as four g we have about five percent of the world's population. But there was a point at which we had half the world's for G deployment. And what happened with that? Leadership role is amazing because the applications economy grew up here on our shores, the operating systems for smartphones all came from here, and you know, what other nations saw that leadership, and they're chomping at the bit to get ahead of us in this next generation. What's the consequence of that for us? Well, we'll have to see we are rounding the bend now about to hold many more auctions, which is a good thing. But we're going to be mindful of the fact that other nations watched our leadership in four G and are quite interested in making sure they're at the front of the pack for five G that was Jessica Rosenthal. Purcell one of four commissioners at the FCC and worth noting. Currently the only democrat the other recently retired. This is the first five G auction. There are more coming.

"I ask you to use that phone number. If you would be in favor of a small surcharge in your ticket to pay for likes. Let's say the nationwide arena when you're going to an actual event there. And and there's a a, quote unquote maintenance charge in there of a couple of bucks for the next however, many years, if they set up, however long, it would be for this would you would you support something like that as opposed to this seven percent tax that's surfaced again in the talks not surface again, but the talks have begun again. And they're they're saying in this article that fans going to nature ride arena. Obviously supporting the blue jackets could be paying a higher price to stave off. They're saying that possibility in the near future of a leaky roof or new scoreboards, and upgrade sweets, and obviously opponents of this proposed seven percent tax on tickets for some sports and cultural events. Here in Columbus. They're saying that isn't a problem, but taxing the tickets for events at competing venues to to benefit the publicly-owned arena. That's where the problem is. So how about if the if the arena actually just began kind of creating its own revenue revenue like through through the ticket, for instance. Like, you think about this for a second if that arena just kind of goes away, clearly the blue jackets couldn't let it happen. But if it began to go away, do do you lose like the big concerts that are coming here or a lot of the events that come here to help us compete like to be a big city. I gotta tell you me personally. I would not have a problem if I went to pay for a ticket there, and there was a couple extra bucks on it. And it said, it was a maintenance charge or whatever. But it actually has to be that it has to actually be the maintenance charge. So there needs to be a way that that is somehow policed. Would you would you seriously be okay? If you're going there to benefit or do use that facility and it's in peril or it's in danger of going away. Would you be okay with this? And I have to say that. I absolutely would be okay with it. And for whatever reason there. Those the money that is in you know, that they need to make these repairs. Clearly, you know, they're trying to propose the seven percent tax to help with this. But it's not just benefiting the arena. So that's where some of the problem comes with people saying, look, you know, the seven percent tax there actually against that. So what would that actually be crazy? Would you be okay with that? I don't think it would be that big of a deal. I I would be completely fine with that. I I don't know. Maybe I'm crazy. But then again, people always say that traffic.

"Only new influx of talent, but those are the guys that are going to stay on your team long-term 'cause they're not getting replaced with free, not as fair to the coaching staff because these other coaching staff, not only did they have a chance to develop their draft picks, but every once in a while you get that guy in the room, you just pay for him to be in the room and how it helps develop those other younger players. Absolutely. Also considering the draft as your best opportunity to get down to players that controllable cost. When you're paying your quarterback thirty three and a half million dollars, you might wanna have some young guys that you don't have to pay for a while. But in looking at the Green Bay Packers situation, this organization has done to an Rogers which should be considered the equivalent of franchise malpractice. Absolutely ridiculous. The fact that this guy is only been in the big game one time in his career to have the most talented quarterback that the game has ever seen. Arguably only be able to have one chance at winning a championship that's an indictment on what they've done around him. Can please explain to me why they do not want to participate in phrases offi he's gone now like it's not like that. He's the Green Bay Packers because they're publicly owned. It's the rules. And you got to keep in mind, vary early on in Aaron Rodgers tenure, they won the Super Bowl and so and I think instead of doing the math, we now doing retrospect and say, you know, one of the big reasons you one that Super Bowl was because yet Charles Speight and you had you had a key player and the your after one of the Super Bowl, they went fifteen one. And then Tom Coughlin purple face in the New York Giants beat them, and they went on to beat the patriots in that Super Bowl, but so they haven't had. It's not like they've had no success. And for most teams, they would take the level of success the Packers fad, but most things don't have twelve who is in Chris has a higher standard than I do is saying the best I've ever seen, probably because you've seen more than me, you've been watching longer and even you think he's the best thrower of the football you've is the best throw him in Dan Marino. I mean, they can throw the football like people that we've never seen. Now, the thing about Dan, the difference between him and Dan. Is if you watch the highlights Aaron Rodgers, not like any quarterback we have ever seen. You'll never see a quarterback who does not need to take a step so you can rush me. You can be right in my face. He can deliver the ball from anywhere on the field with his feet. Almost parallel other quarterbacks have to launch it. They have to push off in go, Aaron doesn't. He makes most of his throws were his feet. His left foot is basically moving out away because this is the steer leg is moving out of the way compared to other guys who have to push in trying to drive the football, Aaron, he can do it like no quarterback that I've ever seen before. And that's one of several things that he does own on a high level when you have a quarterback like that as a defender would it does is it lets me know that the complexion of the game is probably going to change sooner rather than later. Meaning I'm not going to have to play both be honest with the audit opposing offense and terms of being to play the run and the past. He's going to make sure that that that defense is probably playing more pass defense just because the score is going to be one sided vendor on the Packer on the Packer. Seining him. Okay, exactly. That's what I'm saying. Rogers makes opposing offenses one dimensional just because they have to score so many points in order to stay in the game. So as a defendant, it should make your job a whole lot easier..

Of its kind, really, that future of future contract for him should be based. On exactly a percentage of the. Revenue that he brings in I don't know that we would ever see that it would be unique novel I don't know I'm sure I'm sure it would work out well for the. Player I don't know about the precedent that it would feel like the other if they ever gave Rogers that deal the other owners would rain down holy. Fire upon the Packers and saying why are you doing now we all have. To do this Yeah Peter had some other interesting things in this. Com Ben mcadoo is he trying to get a? Job I guess we've seen them all over the place. Lately Ben macaroni exactly a media darling as giants, coach but he didn't expansive thing with Peter about regrets that he had as giants. Coach and the one thing he kept talking, about, well I'm going to get another chance in some. Day I'm gonna be handed that Super, Bowl, trophy whoa pump the brakes. Hairband now he's only forty one years old and he was considered a good offensive mine many years in Green. Bay there's no reason why he shouldn't get a job. Somewhere assuming he's willing to go back to being an, assistant which I think he's going to have to. Do he's not gonna get into the head coaching job of what we saw last year in New, York but he definitely has some. Regrets you probably have some regrets about the suit he wore when he got. Introduced he has some regrets and handling Odell Beckham about handling the New York. Media, look it wasn't a good higher to begin. With I, mean it didn't make any. Sense he didn't have a lot of these. Fears you just become a coordinator for the first. Time remember what? Happened He had, a, at a very good year. In twenty fifteen when he became the offensive coordinator and then he interviews for the head coaching job in Philadelphia. And the giants have been haunted by losing assistant coaches. Vince Lombardi left them Tom Landry left them and Bill, Belichick left talking about three of the greatest coaches. In the history of the sport and they were all New York Giants assistance and none of them, became your China head coaches so. God forbid we're gonna lose Ben mcadoo now which doesn't belong in Lombardy Landry. Bellichik mcadoo but they gave him the job it was not a good higher. It, didn't work out hopefully I don't want him. To see, his career ended age forty. One he should go get a a coordinator's. Job or even a quarterback coaching job somewhere and.
