That's the bulk lead at us. And of course help other people to help other people their employees to to reach that the objectives. That's i don't. I don't hire leader to explain me. What is wrong in. It goes era if it is the big every excuse i can never forget calling heavy having a budget of six sixty eight percent occupancy in the hotel in boston at a time and we met fifty five percent and a call the leader.

I'm not going to the ritz. Carlton is not so we have no right to to move mitnick via. We have to find solutions. We have to say here's what happened. Here's what we're going to do next january. That's what has And you know there is no puberty is no revolt. There's no pleasure in the excuse. All lie in the objective. A you're managing a team. Let's say you are managing a team one of your companies and you have a manager that oversleep for a meeting shows. Up late you know has an excuse has a reason traffic. There's a lot of weather traffic traffic and weather you know. How many times do you put up with that before you fire the person i am clearly if that happens just don't problem of course find this illusion how we come to how you make sure that doesn't have name what you maybe leave little earlier but i understand that can happen and it runs into to create viable but it haven't but if the the dice every few months that doesn't work okay. So if it's like you know every once once a year maybe once every year to have been but if it's like once a month that's that you're gonna you're gonna move on.

But then doing it by by controlling and and forcing in or and and just control mostly in hierarchy alita in a mix sure that his employees one to do the job that means online. They want to shop also understand the value to them. If the trump has done well it has to be communicated lead knows the object is good for all concerned i said touched on earlier and but the diminish that doesn't really care about and by the way is to manage to make you use excuses. Not leaders diminishes also protecting themself. Things even if you ask how will the year the yeah it probably beclere create accepted always comes this. Excuse that hangs around there with miniatures but clearly manager. Don really don't really care how how it turns out for the employees as long as the bottom line is forced makes sense. That makes us. You know you you have said and one of your talks. You said that early on ritz-carlton you knew that if Somebody walked up to the front desk and as long as you greeted them helped them check them in within four minutes. They were okay. The check in time as long as it took about four minutes it was okay but now under four minutes. But now with the millennials it's about twenty seconds and if they're not greeted in twenty seconds they're upset. they're afraid of gluten. They're sharing cars and they're upset if it takes twenty seconds. Talk to me about how you are dealing with. That increased demand for efficiency with time with your newest ventures.

Out my friend. Why is repetition a good thing. Well and i'm i'm in my book i'm talking about. I'm mindy for your for the teaching of your organization because and in a way it's a typical thing of management be tell employees in the beginning when they come what should be done and done. We believe that they're not forever. Which is of course ludicrous. Don't not we don. I don't remember ever was told them to gaining whenever somewhere so how you cannot do that but we then defying. That's what i'm explained. The densify really do most important things in our organization and we teach that the first day in implies starts and then we repeat them we repeat them twenty four points and every day today. Maybe point eleven. Every they'd be be be teached. One point in every hotel in every department of the points one point is being taught the maybe point. Eleven if you complain you own it. If you'd complained about divorce room you own the washroom and you accept that you'll forgive you make amends. No point eleven will come up again. In in in twenty four days and sylvia repeat this point important in differentiate us from the competition day. one point is repeated. Repetition is regarded code. But when some people who rejected it in our in our company beginning. Well everybody knows that. That's kind of silly. So i asked the question of all general managers a sambath because they are the one who rejected it. Does everybody in the room know what coca cola is handy if you done no nobody stands so you all know it so the question is why do they still advertise because it has you have to keep it alive. You have to repeat that if it is important re european and he repeated make it simple and repeated and repeated and repeated windy. You do the repeating a set time where you cannot go to work today.

It's a pleasure to talk to you you. You don't know this but you revolutionized business as a cpa Back in the day for years. I was always taught the traditional client service customer service guests service. Whatever you that that is one aspect of business a separate completely separate part of businesses marketing and advertising and So i rocked along with traditional business traditional. Cpa in read multiple books. And and your the the way ritz. Carlton did it. Kept coming up. That basically the that they are one and in the same that that people the way they're treated and how they feel when they leave a ritz. Carlton that's marketing so it's not only customer service guests service but it's also working. So was that an intentional thing. Did you start with that. Or is that just kind of a byproduct absolutely. We clearly established when the guest leaves. We must if we asked the guest. What did you like you know. Tell and this set cheetah food or the room then we failed. They have to feel good. They have to set. It was just cr- over all great this way this way. We won that case to become an advocate. He won that case to one to come back and recommend us and in the case of ours manual you talk in a higher market segment menus guest. I'm not just just guessed the influence and some of them control other people. So that's not so we re segment said is shoot that every guy that that we convinced that got to us is truly marketing to every single marketing to every single individual horst. I got a follow up to that. It's not really question but just a confirmation of what you're doing. My wife and i were on a cruise one time and and you know the cruise was okay. You know they're they're vetted as being just the high end luxury everything you want there. And we got in the middle of this cruise and my wife said you get me off this boat.

"Three o'clock. That is powerful now. This next idea. I'm not sure were you raised in a christian background. More of a secular. What what your religious background institutional christian if you will we were lutherans pretty about In what today i would. I don't want to scare people get scared me. The i call myself a born again. Christian means i have accepted. That christ is higher than i am an accepting him to be my leader and anything awesome is arrogant to ask you this because there is a bible verse that speaks about this concept called work as unto the lord and. I didn't figure this out too. I was about nineteen years at target and my boss horse told me clay. Somebody is eating of the pretzels. And of course. I was eating all the pretzels. I'm like i don't know who it is. It has to be you or someone on the shift because someone's getting all the pretzels. Well long story short. I was always late. I was always eating all the pretzels. I was always getting all the criticism always being quote unquote micromanaged. Then someone introduced me to the book. Think and grow rich which is not in the bible but it's written by napoleon hill and i decided to name my son by the way after napoleon hill. His name is aubrey. Napoleon hill clark and after reading that book i started getting into this crazy book called the bible and there's a verse colossians. Three twenty three reads whatever you do work at it with all your heart. As working for the lord not for ritz-carlton customers work work as unto the lord not ask for shareholders work under the lord not unto your manager. Since you know that you'll receive an inheritance from the lord as a reward. It is the lord. Christ you are serving. I want to ask you where do where where where do you get that. Where did you get that idea to take customer service to the next level and to revolutionize the hospitality industry will tell about that maitre deal who the mccreadie who said. Don't come to work to work. Come democrat accident but then go on being a christian. I look Jesus said love your neighbors ourself. Why would you not think that your guest or your employees or your neighbors. My goodness what a what a what an amazing thing love your neighbor is what missing who can say something about christ in my opinion and and and so dot had very much impact on me. But if you read my book you will also see a tell. A story about by another christian is santo battle. Some telling me some benedict. I'm sorry benedict in year. Five hundred roads to his ministries to his to his Monasteries and said when the customer minute guest moved adot that time travel has stopped in monasteries. For showed this when a guest arrived receive him and women didn't travel on receive him as if it was christ himself. And not only that. If you're on a fast break your fast and didn't have them so that they're not alone. But but i wash their feet now. If that is that is hospital. I cannot come close to that. But that's the goal to be as close as possible to care. That much is caring. I mean everything christ. It was the greatest thing of all is is laugh. My goodness you mean. Only for some people know laugh is to create a thing. Why wouldn't you love your guest. Why wouldn't you love your employees inter book. which by the way excellence. Wins is a great read. It's a no nonsense guide to becoming the best in a world of compromise. You talk about these four you write about. I felt like you were talking to me. Because i've watched her youtube videos. I'm reading and it feels like you're talking to me Paul jones for that by the way but in your book you talk about these four supreme objectives objective number. One you write is to keep the customer. What does that mean. i. If if i'm looking at what is creek company. Kirk company mixing every effort to keep the christmas to have that mr after they have to say what is it that i have to do to keep those customers but is it well. What you have to do is give that customer. The customer and stuff means says they get in the head and understand what they want what. They're really not mother-in-law told your or somebody's set aside in the plane or you know what your market tells. Should they want. That's what you give them number one. What company does number two. You'll find new ones number three. You get us money much money from the cosmos. You can't wait a minute. If not the cost of losing the customer doesn't mean shaft. Give him bodily you. You have to give value for everything you charge. End defect is guests. That is loyal. That means you don't lose your customers a lot. That's a loyal guest. That guest wants to deal with you and by other things that you produce because loyalty means nothing else but they have develop trust in you so did trust you become loyal and so every what has to be sure you make sure that they don't lose them so their lawyer do number two. You're newmont's number three you get them charge and yourself number four your work efficiently company but the key element here and nothing can interfere and make sure to cause the customer wants to come back and his lawyer again. Loyalty is nothing else but to develop trust in what you're doing i i want to Tap into your brain on this because you said something there that i don't think the listeners quite understand what you're saying you are talking about.

"Guest his name is horst schultz. And i'm sure you're familiar with the company that he co founded in the company that he was once. The former president of the company is called ritz. Carlton hotel company horse scholtz. Welcome onto the thrive time show. How are you sir. I'm create and delighted. To be sir the ritz carlton hotel company has set so many benchmarks for excellence in customer service. Your name has been publicized and people know you for the success you achieved but could you start off at the bottom and share with us where you're from and cutting your background be cut before becoming the king of hotels ho- king of kings good. I'm actually not looking at all. I'm i come from a very small background. Small village in germany lived Individual was fourteen. And then i left and worked in a hotel. I had back my parents to work in a hotel which was very unpopular at the time but They've found the best job that could find the finest hotel which unfortunately was about one hundred kilometers away from home. But i so. I left a lift here in a dorm room with other kids. Starting to work a busboy. Meant everything at the time cleaning. Washing dishes It cetera et cetera. Helping for three and a half year half yes worked in the kitchen worked in a restaurant wrote in the in the housekeeping and so on and after that i left and brockton the truly i mean i'm not etcetera finest hotels in europe in paris and in switzerland or the american line from new england. And after that. I came to the us in nine hundred. Sixty four Some francisco working in the hilton hilton private club and and so on worked started. Ended up it hi-hit in and worked for ten years in high end. Start as a director food and beverage operations director rooms chin miniature vice-president regional vice president corporate vice president and then i was offered to start a job to start a new company to tell span construction both in atlanta and so the headquarters was not lanta about developers and and Financial people and needed somebody to run this new company. Tell business to run the credit with the promise. Dmed me to promise it the that could go top end and so i left say at the time my credit company hit and moved to atlanta and started a new company a year. Later your first tower and that the cameras caused and that's the story that is a lot that is your you. You just flew through incredible career. Let me reset your age fourteen. You just said that at age fourteen. You started working. Is that correct. That's correct yeah correct. Well it's not an untypical german way way of getting into a profession. You walk in that profession and once a week or two the to school relative to that profession down smart idea. That's a typical Trade korea in germany. I saw a talk you gave on youtube by the way. I've been watching way too many of your videos so i apologize for cyber stalking you so much but i want you deliver a talk and i was out. My kids had a cheerleading event and in kansas city and so the way shooting events goes kids perform for about three minutes and then the rest of the weekend. You're kind of you know hanging out at this arena. So i went back to the hotel while i was waiting for them to perform and i watched videos and one of the things that you said and i had to play it back over and over and over as you were comparing you were comparing your commitment to having excellence in work with your commitment to staying married. If i'm getting that correct could you please explain the parallels between committing to bring excellence and committing to stay married while it it. It's all i believe. Everything we do is a decision that we make not not not a pipedream clear decision. I met in marriage. I met a clear decision. When i got merit i will be in love with that woman for the rest of my life not just lover but be in love and i can tell you unequivocally i'm married. Forty years am totally in love with that woman but it takes work. It's not different than when you take a job jamaica decision to be excellent in that job job or whatever is in life decisions i can either just go to work or go to work to create excellence. I always say. I got a for two reasons. One is to create. Excellence in what i'm doing too is to be with my friends if they like it or not tim o. Friends if i have that attitude. I enjoy going there and create something. Why are we to eight hours. Whatever we are at work now you know in a leadership position as much more dollars but what it is eight hours wasted and just do function rather than whatever. The function is good. Excellent the dish washing or whatever. It is could excellence in that but the well how does a cop out well. It's a decision and decision on which you on neutral work on which you which you remind yourself all the time and this deal so it is not different mid anything ounce horse. I don't want you to Throw anything over the phone here. And i'm not. I'm not that satan needs an advocate. But i'm going to be the devil's advocate. Because i grew up really poor. I didn't start working on his fourteen but really sixteen is when i started my first thing and i am not a stranger of the sixty hour the seventy hour work week. I'm not afraid to get to work at for five or whatever. I'm also going to take care of my body and get sleep and also style five kids. I've been married eighteen years. So many people i see they say well the reason why i didn't get to work on time. They just didn't feel like it. And so they have so talk to me about your mindset of committing the excellence versus other people saying i just don't feel yeah but this is no different. I have friends of friends. A couple of years ago is good. Good friends and getting divorced. I mean of course when people who've been divorced it is a total friends and everybody gets divorces. It's import fall. And when i had to sit down i didn't understand their were for to purely for people. Good looking people. Friendly people won't be ba honorable people so i had to sit down with us from johnson. Said why why why it'd be fuelling. What are you waiting for feeling. I rather mega decision. What my feeling is wrong. Make it make a feeling make my decisions. Can you repeat that against sir. That was great. Yeah well i'm saying i really are that. Make the decision. What i feel rather than have to feeling decide what i what i do. How how who i am et cetera. Is this is. This is so unreasonable to even allow that to happen. You make a decision on them. You communicate with the the decision you have to fight against the feelings that. Try to interfere with your decision but it has to still your decision and the and the feeling. It's your decision and not did you. Your decision is it driven by your feelings that right. There is a a knowledge nugget that somebody needs to write down to put that on a t shirt. Many people today should consider getting a tattoo tattoo that as a tattoo. Now i want to ask you this because you worked very hard for fourteen. You work your way up. At hyatt and then my understanding is at gerald w blakeley he owned the one individual. Ritz carlton in boston. And he sold the the trademark. And the brand. To william b johnson who i believe was the largest owner of the waffle house franchises.

How to Achieve an Epic Customer Focused Culture in 6 Steps

"Every one of these steps Works in any size organization. It's just the small ones have an advantage of being able to turn on a dime and really, you know work closely with everybody maybe you know in a short period of time where a large organization, you know to roll it out to thousands and thousands dead. It's difficult. But here it is number one. And by the way, this is separate from your vision and mission statements and values statements create a customer service vision statement or a customer experience vision, and it should be one sentence long or less can even be just several words. For example. My favorite is the Ritz-Carlton what are ladies and gentlemen serving lunch and gentlemen, that's nine words long and mine at my company is 3 words long always be amazing. We want to be amazing for a client's we want to teach your clients to be amazing for their customers and clients guests, whatever they want to call them. So this is our Mantra. I call it a mantra. It's a defining statement about what your service and experience looks like number two is to communicate wage so that everybody knows it and they if you walked up to them and you say what's our service statement or experience statement, they would know without hesitation what it is number three is too true. Two people two at you train everybody like those baggage handlers. They've got to know what their job is that it's beyond just handling bags. It's taking care of the customer or the passenger. So you train everybody else. You don't just do it. Once you don't do it when they're on boarded or just have one event and then don't do it again four years. It's on going to reinforce the importance of making this, you know, really odd cultural not just you know, an event and lip service. So that's number three is training number four. Is that management leadership, especially you need to be the role models. They need to treat people internally with the way they went their customers treated they need to show as they deal with customers to everyone else the right way to do. It number five is to defend the culture if somebody goes out of alignment on this vision, and or maybe it's a department maybe in a large large company. It could be a region or even a country is out of alignment with what that that vision statement is dead. You've got to get them back in and I once interviewed a number of CEOs. And one of the questions I asked is what's your most important job and the gentleman that in my opinion would have won a prize said God send the culture of our company. That's one of my biggest jobs. He helped create it and he wants to defend it number 6 is to celebrate it when it works let people know they're doing a great job and wage and that's it. So you've got Define it communicate it Train everybody to it be the role model for it. If you're a leader and defend it if it goes out of alignment with anybody or any group of people and number six celebrate it when it works.

Think there is that I also think though you know eventually in in in. We saw you know when the when the The lockdown was being lifted, and people started returning to the beaches, and you could point to the millennials that we're all gathering in bars and didn't really care, but I think in general, though and you can, you can tell me about this really a trust and confidence at some point in time that the brands have to communicate that their hotel or their cruise liner. Whatever it happens to be is is safe as safer. 'cause there's always I would imagine some kind of lingering in the back of people's minds, you know. Is this really stamped out, or is it just? They're just waiting to the hit us again. Like, the cruise industry I got hit with that norovirus all the time. How do you see? From? A brand perspective on what's GonNa? What's it? GonNa take to build that confidence back. Well, it's an interesting. Dilemma because brand. You can't go out with the marketing campaign saying my rooms more sanitized than the other guy.

Everybody's saying? How do we say something? It's that differentiates us from everybody else in everybody leads with a were sanitized and we're clean. Then then there is really no separation, and then also I I also get concerned. When I see some of the things happening with my clients in in the people that I talked to that. They're diluting their brands. In the short term because I need short term revenue been in the long term they're doing. Which always concerns me a great point you know you don't want to.

You've got healthcare systems that have vice presidents of hospitality as a as a position, just solely focused on increasing the patient experience. You've got education. Organizations that are hiring. People in hospitality because they realized the student is a customer. And so when I'm visiting your college most visiting three more will. Why are you losing? Why are you not getting every single student and mom and dad that are coming looking at you? Where's the data? That says us why they said now. What are you doin- what changes?

A New Path to the NBA: Woj on the G League's Program

"Woge? It has now been three weeks since number. One ranked high school recruit Jalen Green announced on instagram. That he'd be passing on numerous college offers to instead. Become part of the new improved G. League professional pathway program. That's what it's called Q. Explain what it is and how it began Meena. It's it's really a bridge between the end of the wounded done era in college basketball in the NBA and what had existed which was really limited options for an elite high school player to do anything but go to college basketball. They put this program place. Two years ago and they started off with players they fell would be first. Round picks were highly regarded coming out of high school. One hundred twenty five thousand dollars a year would be assigned to League team and then you would enter the following years draft. They could not get anybody in that. I really year year and a half to commit to that program. A couple reasons. I think even more than the money agents and those who would advise high school players advised against the idea of going to the G. League where it seven. Let's say eighteen years old. You're going to be playing against grown men in there who played college who played overseas who've been in the NBA back and forth maybe mid twenties late twenties and they would hurt your intentionally hurt your draft stock where you be physically overmatched. It is a difficult lifestyle especially for young person. It's not charter. Flights it's not four seasons and Ritz. Carlton's it's the southwest flight connecting it midway Chicago to get the Iowa City. Adam silver was very moved by the fact that Lamelo Ball in R J Hampton to the top players in this two thousand twenty draft when to Australia next year take my talents to the NBA. Laura Hawks next year I will be going overseas to play an Australian basketball even with the New Zealand. Breaking choke deals in that five hundred thousand dollar a year range and there was not really an option for them. Here there are things we should be doing differently. So that for an American player who decides college isn't for me and I want to spend fulltime devoted to the game of basketball. That's my best chance to be in the NBA. There should be an alternative opportunity in the US spurred silver to push ref- Abderrahim. Who is the president of the G. League she and Rod Strickland Former all-star Mba guard who also works for the G. League in the NBA as part of this program? They've been out in the field. They've been out talking the families players and coaches and they certainly explained to Adam silver. We've got to change this program. So they updated this program specifically for players like Jalen Green. What exactly does it look like now. This is essentially a select team that will be comprised of the players coming out of high school and then veteran players who might otherwise be in the G. League who would get paid comparable salary to come play here. Play a mentor. Ship role to these players. Perhaps players on the back end of their career might like to who might have an I- already on coaching or working in a fraud office will working for the League and also realize that. There's going to be a great deal of scouting attention paid to this group of players. Nba and that. This might not be a bad place for them to still be seen as viable players right now. So that's the makeup of a roster. The coaches will be coaches that people have heard of with NBA coaching experience. Some of them former head coaches and they'll play a schedule that will include G. League teams but not a fulltime jelly schedule. So they'll play perhaps exhibitions against G. League teams. They might play national teams. Who might be touring from different countries? Different parts of the year. I was told they might go to Australia. Where there's an NBA Academy maybe play some Exhibition Games? There and stay there for awhile and train and move around and now the program became more appealing for the top level player. And you've seen now if you players make that leap when you say. It's more appealing in the financial. Incentives are better. How much better we talking? Well Jalen Greens deal with the G. League is around. Five hundred thousand dollars that includes incentives. I'm told that there's a base salary and then there's incentives for essentially just completing. Maybe it's a community service program or a life skills program things that are part of it that they disincentivize financially now. Every player is not going to get five hundred thousand dollars. Jalen green was a number one player in his class. And if you listen to John Devonian Mike. Schmitz are dropping analysts. And I listen to those guys. They tell me that he would have competed to be the number one. Pick in this coming draft and right now he's you know projected to be that in the two thousand twenty one draft so there was. I think a great credibility for the NBA The G. League to get a player that caliber come into this program that he might be a little bit of a Pied Piper for others but they're not going to pay all these guys five hundred thousand some of them the pay more than the one twenty five but they're really negotiating that and remember that. Those players inside endorsement deals. If there's somebody who wants to pay them to wear shoes jailing green again is is a player who see your companies have great interested Not all the players are going to get big endorsement deals and then there is a component that they will go back. There's a partnership with Arizona State and with the NBA. And you could go back and get your degree hate for by the League later on at some point and so those are the benefits of this for players who decide. They don't want to go to college or meetings. In some instances where players become eligible and can't go play college basketball. You mentioned that players. Who Do this can also get endorsement deals? Which at the same time this is happening the NC Double A. Just came out and said were exploring the idea of letting our college players also have endorsements with of course many caveats and limitations this being the NCW TC. All of this is being connected while the shaves but exploring for quite a long time. They always seem to sort of stay in exploration mode. And when you start to dig down into the fine print of what they talk about doing. It isn't what maybe the headline was of of trust. Release or a report about it. I will say this being a part of the. Nba's thinking was that they were reacting. I think a little bit to the Condoleeza Rice commission slash report which a couple years ago essentially said the NBA should do away with one and done. We must separate the college track from the professional track by ending one and done the NCAA stance was that the players who do not want to be in college. There should be an avenue for them to bypass college and that we should take them in here if they don't want be here and so the NCAA on one level has encouraged this of the NBA. Now part of the problem is the NBA and the Players Association. They have not been able to agree on the terms of ending one and done we call on the NBA and the N. Bpa power here to once again make eighteen year old eligible for the NBA draft so that high school players who were drafted may proceed directly to the NBA in theory. Both of them both sides the union. The League would like to end one and done. There was a sense that that this would have gotten done last year. But there are terms of an agreement that they can't come to to end it. And this may be shelved now all the way until the next collective bargaining agreement two thousand twenty four twenty five so for the NCAA right now like this is what they asked for and whether or not they loosen the ability for players to earn money in college or off lightness or however that happens then. I think that will impact this. But let's I still think there's going to be a lot of players who would rather go to college because by the way meaner if you WANNA get paid. There are plenty of places in college basketball that you can go and make money equivalent to what the Julius paying. And that's that's just a fact you're referring of course to the fact that it's an open secret that college kids get paid under the table. Me Knock. I've broken a few stories along the way.

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, backed by the king, moves for absolute power

"It is easy to forget that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz. Al Sowed is not actually technically ruler of Saudi Arabia. That title belongs formerly to his elderly Father King Salman however since his appointment as crown prince in two thousand seventeen. It has been widely understood that. Nbs often known is the heir designate. Power behind the throne and at the age of thirty four very much the future of Saudi Arabia in this unofficial role mb has furnished considerable cause for concern he has overseen a terrible onslaught against Yemen and a blockade of Qatar. Neither of which appear to have accomplished much. He has interred dozens of his fellow royalty. For a time in a Ritz hotel and more or less kidnapped the prime minister of Lebanon perhaps most infamously. Nbs is widely supposed responsible for the murder of Washington. Post columnist. Jamal Khashoggi even by those standards. This week's palace intrigue in Riyadh is remarkable. Several members of the court appear to have been arrested at MBA's instruction including one of his uncles and one of his cousins dozens more army officers and civil servants are also reported to have been rounded up east this NBA swatting a coup. D'etat conducting one of his own. If he does manage to reach the throne when King Solomon's time comes. What does he want to do with it and is in BS? Perhaps not quite the Mariah Carey loving modernizer. He would have us believe. This is the foreign desk when you bring in Mariah Carey and all these singers and pay them views amount of money but you do not have an any universities anyplace to learn music. There is no department in any Saudi university to learn. Play ride to a drama making this these other forms that you should look for. And whether this massive youth constituency what she has to some extent manage to bring behind him is still behind him in five years time because young people need to get jobs. They need to be able to get married. They can't subsistence promises forever. So I think Basch is going to be the key determinant his credibility rather than some of the things that I looked with more interested in the book. We must remember that. Donald Trump has given unequivocal support. D'amato Vince on who is heavily implicated in the killing of the journalist. Jamal Hasha he. Trump has had his back on that one and I think as as long as trump remains in power that this relationship will continue quite strongly. You're listening to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today show. I'm joined by Ali Al Ahmed and Laura James Ali. Ahmed is a Saudi Scala. The Institute for Gulf Affairs joins us from Washington DC. Laura James is senior Middle East analyst at the Global Advisory Firm Oxford Analytica Ali. Al Start with you and I'll start with well it's not always an easy question to answer with Saudi Arabia's concerned which is the the pretty basic one of as far as we know what has been going on this week Mohammed bin Salman the heir apparent of King. Solomon who has a lot of political ambitions obviously has members of the ruling family who are his rivals and they do not want to see him become king if they would like to see him ousted some just by talking and some by plotting so what has happened is Hamad discernment is extremely insecure about that and he took measures to stop any attempt to remove him. We have two groups here those who are talking and then the sort of speaking ill of Like his uncle Ahmad but Abdelaziz who who thinks that he has better in terms of becoming king and you have his cousin especially the younger ones who rallied around the his main rival. Hamad bin naive to try to dislodge him for power by by force even and that is why we have seen these steps of arrest and monitoring hundreds of members on family who are eyeing the throne Laura to bring you in his they one fundamental thing looking behind this extraordinary shakespeare in intrigue. Is it a reasonable assumption that MBBS is trying to nail down his future in anticipation that King Mohammed who is eighty four years old and not in good health? Con- last forever. I think he's done really since he became Crown Princeton before has been based on that assumption. It's been about shoring up his position within the family and I think if when his father succeeded nobody would have predicted that he could have done it. This effectively. He is essentially unchallenged. Do we understand. If the differences between the rival factions are actually political or is this basically a more atavistic. Instinctual family feud. I'm not sure that you can draw the distinction very clearly in Saudi Arabia between family in politics the two very much Banda with each other. I would say one difference between Mohammed bin Salman. His rivals is that he thinks that the anyway food. Saudi Arabia is essentially for one person to be in clear charging for that person to him whereas some of the people who oppose him wants to get back to a more consensual style family managed rule and Schering of resources and consensus in enslave change whereas if a political as well family reasons bin Salman says no that model work for Saudi Arabia. Dunga all these possible to be clear on rich factions of the house of sowed supporting. Nbs this point. Does he actually have the numbers? I think? So the most important in Saudi government and the ruling. Saudi Arabia is not even the ruling family anymore. It was about power previously. The model like Laura speaking about the there were centers of power at King. Abdullah had the national guard was his own militia guns so he can force his His agenda and his position and so on the delayed crown prince was also minister of defense so he had the army under his control so he can push his agenda and most importantly then the ministry of the interior with late conference knife had the interior ministry. Which has the largest number of security personnel and across the country and so he can use that to push himself to the throne in all of these people reach the throne. Some some did some died before they they got to to become king now all of these powers the Army National Guard and the Interior Ministry has been gutted and removed. Everything that's powerful about. It has been moved to something called the State Security Agency and the control of bin Salman so our bin Salman controls all the military and security apparatus in the country. So who is his real challenge? No one they can speak. They can talk about. They cannot do very much. There are members of the family who want to see him out. This is not strange to the Saudi ruling family King Faysal was shot and killed by his own nephew. King Salad was overthrown by his brothers. And also there was an assassination attempt on his life after he was deposed and expelled. This is nothing new in the history of the family so I expect to see some harsh measures against some of those younger princess like Nawaf bin Ni- F- Who was arrested and Mohammed bin? Naif who is basically the boss the boss of this of this of these people because he has the best chance in rivaling Ahmed bin Salman let us remember. It was the Obama Administration C. i. a. A and Obama who brought Hamad Knife as the future king and gave him a lot of accolades And supported him and tell trump came and push 'em B. S. INSTEAD AND MR. I'm mad but was pushed out and he still. Mr Benign has a lot of support in Washington in day democratic side. So that was the fear that MBBS had Laura how much might MB S.'s? Stature in court or credibility in the court of being damaged by his own somewhat petulant impulsive behavior over the years whether that's launching this war in Yemen his involvement? In the murder of Jamal Khashoggi would there be a concern in the rest of the court that he might be quite the loose cannon concerns among some parts of the ruling family and very strong concerns internationally. I think there are two distinct issues. One is about foreign policy mistakes. And as you've said in terms of Yemen in terms of Qatar in terms of the confrontation with Iran and particularly in Lebanon. It seemed that. His foreign policy initiatives haven't worked very well. I think within the country that's less important like the Ritz Carlton and this latest. Crackdown are actually less important than the nuts and bolts of vision twenty thirty which is his transformation plan so Mohammed bin Salman has stepped forward and said we know we need to change. The oil is going to run out. We've got to move into a new era. Diversify the economy. Be ready for this. Get Jokes Young People Change Society? I need a huge amounts woods that intensive transforming the way in which Saudi Arabia

Trump impeachment: What you need to know about the Senate trial

"Today. The big news coming out of Washington should have been the presentation of the articles of impeachment. Went to the Senate. The swearing in the chief justice to preside over the trial and of senators to serve impartial. Justice list was eclipsed however by new revelations revelations about trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine policy. Well we've Geoffrey Howard professor of political science at UC L. to come in and bring us up to date with the fast moving eating events have US domestic politics. Thanks so much for joining us. Jeffrey set who is left Pon us and what does he said. So let's partners is an associate of Rudolph Giuliani. Most people remember. Rudy Giuliani as the mayor of New York City. During nine eleven many thought he would go down in American history as one of its most storied figures. Someone who inspired brought the city together but this is a very different Rudolph. Giuliani we see before us in twenty twenty. He is the personal lawyer to the president of the United United States and by all accounts spent the last couple of years going around the world doing the president's bidding doing the president's alleged dirty work and life partners ukrainian-american American is one of his associates. One of his henchmen some have put it Who It seems has been spending quite a bit of time in Ukraine meeting with Ukrainian officials playing playing a key role in trying to pressure The Ukrainian government to fabricator find dirt on Joe Biden which the president could then use to smear near him with if Joe Biden turns out to be his opponent in the upcoming general election? And he's given this this huge interview where he absolutely says that trump knew exactly what it was going on. How credible is he? Well I think he certainly deserves a good amount of skepticism. He is himself under indictment partly for participation in he's very allegedly nefarious activities But what he's saying is corroborated by everything else. We've learned over the past few months. So this trove of voicemail as mail messages and texts in calendar entries demonstrates that there has been a concerted effort by trump's associates by Rudolph Giuliani and and his men To try to pressure the Ukrainian government to cook up this investigation Into into the former vice president Joe Biden That the president has known about it all along that the Attorney General Bill Bar has known about it all along the so many people have suggested that well maybe rudy. Giuliani has been up to no good but maybe the top people in the White House weren't totally sure that he was doing all this. He was just doing it on his own initiative well of left parties right The president has known about this all along then absolutely vital and orchestrating it and some of the elements of this evidence are really striking. Some of them are are handwritten notes scrawled on sheets of paper from the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Vienna And they demonstrate that there was a wide range of tactics that were deployed by eh trump's or rudy Giuliani's men including left in Ukraine. It looks like there may have been in operation to Sir Vail then American ambassador acid to the Ukraine by Rudy Giuliani's own men. So I mean this really is the stuff of a of a movie plot. You really couldn't make it up and inevitably they will be a movie about about the We also heard yesterday that an independent nonpartisan office that works for Congress says the trump administration broke the law when it withheld held military assistance to Ukraine. So what has the Government Accountability Office said. Why does it matter so will it matter that is the question for the US Senate as we approached this This trial So the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office. It's a it's a national watchdog organization and it did indeed find that the decision to withhold military aid for Ukraine dangling over the government in exchange for a promise to look into a Abidin was indeed a violation of the law. Now as we know the president cannot be prosecuted as part of a traditional Legal investigation it. There is a special process. The founding fathers of the United States for better or worse put into place with respect to holding the president legally accountable and that is the the impeachment process. Which of course begins with the House of Representatives? The Lower Chamber of the Congress deciding whether to charge the president with a particular offense Which has done that is why he's been impeached? And then it goes to the Senate to decide Whether to convict him the offense and if they do convict him of the events he will be the I president. US history removed from office. And that is where we are now the opening formalities of the Senate trial of happened. We've had the swearing in of jurors as we know the Senate is controlled told by Donald Trump's party the Republicans will the jurors be impartial. Well that's the big question. We're learning to find out so A month ago Mitch. McConnell the the leader of the Republicans in the Senate said that he didn't intend to be an impartial juror and he emphasized that this is a political process And of course there's a sense of what she's he's right that it is a political process. This isn't a standard ordinary legal process. It is a a decision that the senators get to make for themselves. They get to ask themselves. Do we think that this conduct that the president has engaged in amounts to what the constitution refers to as high crimes in misdemeanors has the president by allegedly abusing. His power demonstrated that he is fundamentally unfit for office such that he ought to be removed. That is not a matter of showing that the president violated highlighted some particular law on the books. It's it is a political judgement but that doesn't mean it has to be a a a narrow minded self interested partisan judgment political judgments can still be moral judgments and so when the chief justice of the United States who very intriguingly to preside over. This whole process swore the senators in in yesterday He got them to swear that they would do impartial. Justice in this context with that means I would argue is that they need to Genuinely we look at the evidence. Look at the facts And that really goes to the question of whether this will be a fair trial because we do not know for sure yet whether there will actually be witnesses called or or whether it will be a very quick process where they have opening statements And then basically closing statements and then it ends because trump had originally said he wanted witnesses. Nice Nice seems to be tons of them. Well it's it's not exactly clear what the president wants here One thing we know for sure is that if the president if we do have witnesses in this process For example the former national security adviser of the United States John Bolton long celebrated and regarded as a very important vigour by Republicans but who is said to have referred to Rudy Giuliani's little inquiry in Ukraine as a as a drug deal that he didn't have anything apart a part of he has said that if he's subpoenaed he'll be willing to testify. No doubt if left parnassus subpoenas. He would testify Now it could be that some of the more. Moderate Republicans pins people like Susan Collins from Maine who are going to rely in their next reelection. On more moderate members of their state voting for them will want to be seen as not just in the tank for trump as somewhat more independently minded Someone like Mitt Romney. For example the senator from Utah also wants to be seen as an indeed is more independently hundley minded. They may well go with Democrats in supporting calling witnesses. You might even get more Republicans than that to support calling pulling witnesses. But then they'll perhaps want include witnesses. That don't seem to have much particularly to do with whether trump is guilty not such as Hunter Biden and so if we start seeing people like Hunter Biden called in this thing could degenerate into a circus quite quickly and I mean such a huge week ahead then for the US and not just for the Republicans for the Democrats. Not Because of course we have Iowa coming up on one of the unintended consequences of this. Trial is the fact that two senators who are also running for the Democratic nomination not table to get on that campaign trail so Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders both needing to be in Washington to actually be at this trial absolutely absolutely and so then. They're going to have to go so there. Of course the two most important ones given their rankings in the polls Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota also needs to participate cle Bennett a senator from Colorado running for president. I saw the other day. He's still running for Pres- wasn't aware that he was still in the race. He hasn't been in the limelight bat. Much of that's four senators that have to Interrupt their campaigns and go back and so might that given a slight edge to South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buddha judge and the former former vice president Joe Biden it probably will and just indulge me here in a in a best case justice doing its job no partisan interest Outcome where trump is simply judged on whether he broke the Laura or not and we know he did really How soon could he be gone? Well it could happen quite quickly. So the Clinton trial took just over a month. Um that was in nineteen ninety nine. The previous impeachment was the impeachment of Andrew Johnson in nineteen sixty eight and that took about two months So if you manage to get so there are fifty three Republicans in the Senate. They're forty five Democrats there to independence any two two thirds of the Senate to convict and remove the president from office. Which means you'd need to get the forty five Democrats which you'd get you get the to independence and then you need to get Twenty or so little more more than twenty Republicans To sign on as well and that seems extremely extremely unlikely Because you can get someone like Susan Collins who will be able to say. Well we broaden auden witnesses. We looked at all the evidence and we just decided he was bad with the president. Had but it didn't rise quite to the level of an offense such that we should remove him from office and that might be a way. She's able to save face but if for some reason the political winds change dramatically. Maybe John Bolton gives a dramatic testimony that shifts public opinion radically medically and you do get that twenty those twenty or so senators. Well then trump could be gone within a couple of months Jeffrey. I'm holding my breath. Thank you very much indeed. That's Jeffrey free. How it

The highest corporate office gave back office support hordes got some advice from a Labor lawyer. He literally called me every day to remind me take three steps for ones. Take TWO TREE CORNER. Think and maybe gain one inch. Never be Richard and with your employees keep on being deleted not the manager. The high it also felt horse could use port marketing. Npr But horse struggled to buy into marketing until one lady named Sherry proved him wrong. There wasn't a carpet program marketing program which I didn't like I hit that program and I didn't institute it of course I didn't like it so the corporate office the Vice President Marketing Kim Indotel and applied it himself. He hired a young lady to do this program so consequently I thoroughly disliked her because she was forced on me by carbon copies and issued that Marketing Program. Oria liked it a lot instituted this letter. I've believe told me. And of course everybody from from Carbon Ken to train with her and she was very honorable person. She was extremely successful. She became salesperson of the company. Number one in the company and so I started to respect her a lot little too. He know how important it would be to have marketing on his side. How the Union wirt and went on strikes was unpredictable horse recalls. What happened on Christmas Day in Nineteen seventy-six is hard to believe today? This sounds like a fairytale was ridiculous. Hired philosophy was the Christmas. Every employee gets a gift over Turkey. Christmas be started giving Turkeys. Guess what this stopped us? The Union stop doubts. He said you cannot prescribe our people and they went on strike. And then what? How did you respond as general man a cinnamon chip in front distract me a few times but the first time they struck as we've been immediately outside it was very very cold and afternoon late afternoon? Vary call so we've been right outside served hot SIDA and hot tea for the employees and and sweet rolls it so long because frankly a new TV crews would come the TV crews. Kim said well what you're doing serving your employees even Dole misunderstanding. There still my. My employer is eleven and of course every new ship and and at the time in suffice it to say to hotel became extremely successful so it was at thirty percents off bridge occupancy before you joined what was the occupancy after you eighty percent and the average rate tripled.

He moved to where the opportunities were to get experience working in different countries different states and work cultures. He used his vacation days for education. He solved problems for the company like they were his own. He even rejected a dream job to gain more skills and after three years in Pittsburgh horse was promoted to go to Detroit but he wanted to take someone with him. Remember the young lady from marketing. And I've worked with him over two years and I must be crazy so I asked for date and she said Oh my goodness be back. Good friends why do I have to do that to me? How can you destroy our friendship? She she kept on saying knowns and finding a center Sherry. I understand that. But one dave when you're old and create you will remember this moment and I know you believe credits. And and and ask it against alright monitoring Greek on the hands and done and eight months later.

GonNa get excited and I tell you right now. Drive into my home like every day. I will thank God for my wife. For Horst. Meeting Sherry changed his life. He says he was in previous failed relationships but something about Sherri stood out. Sheri's pursuit of excellence at work didn't just stemmed from herself but from genuine faith in God this would eventually give horse the anchor he needed to make major decisions later on in life for Horst. He saw how seeing everything in life as a decision allowed him to commit to excellence. Raise everything and live and people don't seem to get everything is decision this man even if you believe in God on on. It's a decision. Doug decision may evolve so and I have a very good friend who is a route.

I tell you I was very good and bring some ninety one four ahead problem and as soon as it was gone I sheltered again at Director Level Horst started getting head hunted and when he was thirty four he got an offer from the height group and by the time he finished his degree at Cornell. He proved himself to be a top performer as an FBI director. So much so that he didn't expect with the high it was going to offer him next went to Chicago. I and wrote us a foot in Barrington limit over here. They want to promote me. The channel miniature manager. That's high up. Everybody dances on the on the table and they can promote general manager. I didn't accept it. And he called from San Francisco. Our headquarters was in San Francisco and a time to know. Are you leaving the company? No and he said.

I didn't think I could be a great general manager on create excellent tournament since I had never worked rooms. That's a that's right. And so he said it doesn't mean that we keep you create rooms minister help you. I said I don't care. And he actually flew to Chicago to talk to him. You saw that would leave the company as it. Let Me Work. As Roma's mentioned for a year. And after that give me the Gerster telling the company Horst says. He only emphasized working at the worst Hyatt Hotel because the president emphasized how they were offering him to be GM at the finest hotel in the company where they felt he would be a good fit but still hort still didn't feel he was ready to be an excellent GM without any experience and rooms. Banishment and horse was convinced. If he got that experience he would really be ready to be the best.

Major hotel chains like Hyatt. Were buying up old hotels. That had low occupancies renovating and turning them around so it wouldn't be an easy task for the general manager to not only manage the hotel operations and its employees but to also bring in a culture of change and improvement on top of that. Pittsburgh had another challenge. I was warned before I got to have from Genesis and other companies. All crying out loud. Don't go to Pittsburgh. This is the worst. Nobody can do a good job.

We're going to dive deep into your platform and all the things that inspired you to make it and all the wonderful things that are coming up but first give us a little background who you are in kind of what drew you to. WHO The crypto currency and blockchain industry? Yes so me. I came to Crypto in around two thousand eleven. Two thousand twelve when oh seventeen years old. It was based on friends a little bit older than myself. Actually Mining Crypto in the bedrooms full at helping three university on it was something that instantly became attractive. It was a way to gain from Nathan essentially on it the whole concept behind it. The whole block chain concept the over the FE- is following not actually came to me on something that we rent on In research searched on it it was something that was like. Wow this is really going to take off Throughout University again. trading crypto to people. Ebola didn't didn't buy it from didn't know where to get it from from those people who in mind in it and then yet just sort of went from there really my knowledge of Blockchain Ainun crypto developed in development. Obviously than we still therion come come to lie on the rest of the crypto spacious has begun to Then obviously while I was in my final year of university I just decided you know to sort of take the leap of faith on trolley Concept was so itself was bowing because of atrophy troubling because the founders passion for traveling Stevo founder. Hugh I conceptualize this idea with. Actually he was. He's been in the travel industry for over twenty five years so it was something that was really clicked with those on we. We reform survived. Come from that around two and a half years ago now. One of the problems that I always have. I'm travelling is they WANNA have An actual credit card in order to check in and I feel like that's the most ridiculous thing in the world. That's the problem that I'm having. But what problems are you trying to solve with. Travolta were trying to create a globally accessible hotel and travel booking marketplace on by that we mean is provide a a option for everybody to pay whatever means they desire so for example they could pay with Bitcoin With Syria they could pay with a native token. Aba and we want to provide that gateway to all those people in this uses in the Christian space now on what will come to space over time. we housing site libra potential and the reach of that tool those billions of people facebook. They have a platform where they could spend the cryptocurrency on. We've got to make sure that leading the way in tens of economists Payment solutions full plot phones on especially hotels on a combination. Let's amazing and kind of pizza minds point. How do we like so I buy thing by a hotel or rent a hotel with Through Travolta generally speaking. They're going to need a credit card in order to handle like you know Potential Room damages. So is your platform the same way where I could suspend bitcoin. But then I get to the hotel in order to check and I'll still need to put down credit and depend a really depends on the hotel and the value the hotel itself. You know the highest value hotel's rich in for example. Yes you will have to do. You will also lead into the hotel a lower three star to star hotel. You probably probably house to it. All depends on the hotel specific. Needs at where you're specifically at the hotel. Now that saying we do have potential plans plunged at rollouts of halo system which can be used in hotels so that would lead potential. People's pay with Crypto Chris in the M in the long term vision of trauma awesome and not to get too technical. But you know what's going on in the back end when I pay. Travolta Crypto is travel is taking kind of inventory risk of holding onto that Crypto long-term and pain out to the Ritz Carlton and cash. What's going on so how it works? Is We take a crypto payment and we instantly liquidate so we have a number of moving paw. Aw that are in play at one specific moment in time and they problematically released the CRYPTO. Making sure that we don't lose anything when we don't Miss It. And we mitigate the risk of volatility completely that means the way say safe is a business where able to grow it. It would be great if we could pull crypto for a long period of time but in the sense in a business sense that is not a is no small news so yet we liquidate straightaway on. We actually accomplishing institutional money. And we pay the hotels so Whistle of the. Let's call the offer another problem trauman having is you know when I'm working for different companies and even here Crypto WanNa one you know we go to different conferences and the company will book my travel travel accommodations. But sometimes my name won't be on the room or you know whatever the case is and even though someone booked a room for me if they're not out there even though the rooms already been paid for not allowed to go in. And I think to myself Ma'am block could really solve this if I had some kind of Nafta token that says this room his mind you know until it expires four days you know I could simply just walk past. Walk Straight to the door and get my roommate's completely bypass the whole check in thing. How do you think that besides that you know maybe blockchain can help the hotel industries one day and what needs to happen before they're ready to fully get on board with blockchain? I think what's GonNa what happens. Is Payments Payments. Stop and I once. They see the payments all secure. They don't lose. They don't elise capital from it because what we did see a few years ago was expedia expedia or go to try crypto payments. Try bitcoin payments and they continue can you to after short period of time because they could not handle the risk of volatility and they lost capsule. Now that's obviously put people in the travel industry off from mainstream sharing perspective but then the allows innovators to commend showcase. Actually make it work. I think that's the fish For hotels themselves paints finance at once they get payments than they could obviously look the areas. Why the hotel itself? The whole supply chain management systems. They could come into play on then yet. Like you mentioned a individual hotel bookings full people Making sure about systems systems correct on. MFT Tokens that. Would I guess that would come into play if a hotel specifically its own. Unique and T- tokens is like single into the network of hotels on. That could be what that would come into play in the future again Looking at it from his point of view at this specific assistant member in time

2019: The year business went 'woke'

"Twenty. Nine hundred was the year when Saudi Arabia launched changed long-awaited share offering in state oil company. Aramco D- when Softbank lost its gloss when accounting giant tighten belts and when capitalism went woke. I'm I'm joined to discuss the corporate year with our companies editor. Tom Breath weight and Brooke. Masters are comment and Analysis Edison. Tom Can start with you. Can you tell L. is what happened with the Saudi Aramco IPO. Well it happened. Finally which is serve some progress because it took months and months of delay and eventually This massive oil company floated in Riyadh and now does have the two trillion dollar valuation that was so coveted by Prince. Mohammad bin Salman. Why did it take so long investor skepticism in short? I think one problem was that the Saudis would have liked to have listed this in New York which is the the biggest steepest capital market in the world but the main problem there was that they could have been sued for their alleged role in the nine eleven terrorist attack ax which Saudi Arabia has always denied it opens the window to litigation in the US which they desperately wanted to avoid so. That was one problem that the other problem was that most international investors did not think this oil company which is still fairly. Oh pay can still very much. Under the control of the Kingdom could justify the valuation valuation particularly at a time when oil prices have fallen. And when there is great concern about global companies in a world where carbon one is considered toxic change. They Saudis raise the money. Yeah well it got its public oil company to the local market in Riyadh. What it couldn't do was securer hefty amount of international investors so there was a lot of pressure on local Saudi investors? Some of whom were the same people. Who'll who were held against their will at a hotel the Ritz Carlton Reminders? What happened then? Back in two thousand seventeen. Several of Saudi Arabia's richest families were held old at the Ritz Carlton Hotel People like Prince. Alwaleed who is quite knows. International investor ended up with an enforced stay whilst their assets assets were probed by the state and ultimately some of those assets were confiscated by the state so these same people Saudi Arabia and knocked on their door and and said we'd really like you to buy into the Saudi Aramco. IPO and these people generally said yes. Yes we would very much like everyone else. We would like to buy the shares and so they did and it is floated and this little sliver of equity has been sold. And that is what justifies the two-trillion-dollar evaluation. Now it's not really like apple apple of a massive mega capps who's stock as freely traded. So if and when that ever happens we might get a more realistic assessment of what it's worth. Burke Saudis been a big investor in South Bank and the Vision Fund which. We've had corsage about this year. How Will Scaling Down with the IPO effect Saudi Arabia's ability ability to continue money into what I think we now call the troubled Japanese fund presumably? It might make it more difficult. I mean Saudis already having having to raise more money to diversify the economy and so presumably. They're not going to want to be quite to free with their cash. And of course Softbank is probably not the place that they I would like to put their money anymore. Anyway because Softbank itself by Maceo she son has taken some really big bets on companies that have not so far come good specifically specifically. I think we work would be the most obvious one. which is the shared office? Space Company tried to list and failed to at which point not only did it not sell equity but but it's lenders decided not to lend any money and Softbank had to go rescue it and its valuation has been cut significantly. I'm sure Tom knows exactly by how much he's about. Tell us I think I think from forty seven billion dollars. They tried various levels down but ultimately ends up with a sub ten billion dollar evaluation as you say failed to go public. Can they continue each trade. Yeah I mean as long as Softbank and others are willing to continue to pour cash into it because it is still heavily loss-making but the other thing they've done is scaled back their a growth strategy. So they are not spending as much money on new builds so they think they can get to somewhere near break even in the coming months. They've also filed a lot of people which helps so frank's image of takes quite a battering its credibility. How does that affect its ability to keep them investing well they have been trying to raise a second fund and it has not worked worked as well as one would hope? It's particularly problematic because as you may remember. Their first fund has an extremely unusual structure where it's not just people putting in cash. It's people putting in cash and then also they had to put in loans basically so they don't have as much cash as your classic Private Equity Fund. What have they actually have to pay interest on the money? They've got so I think if they don't have success relatively soon the way it's structured means that the lack of success will be magnified and make it that much harder for them. Son has apologized already. Instead he was to credible and he has also started putting a new governance requirements on the companies that the fund invests in food for them. I've always always been skeptical about some of the companies have invested in some of the valuations. They've invested at. They seem to have got quite late into the private tech game and got into in a massive way EH. One of the most ridiculous investments was wag this company that walks you dock for you which they've just finally pulled out of we. Work is the big characteristic Batson if that went well then or would be fine. But it hasn't so I mean Masan has this ability really proven alibaba to pick one winner that has generated a massive amounts of return. So if there's just one company within this portfolio then it could be judged a success but if you look at companies like Uber which I showed this year and his now full and a third in value if you look obviously we work and the marginal bets like y than as little really to say that this thing is going to be success for the big four. They've had quite the twelve months with so many scandals. What would you say? What did they end up this year? What's interesting is it hasn't been as bad? That is you think I mean. They have been criticized and find record fines record discipline for dreadful audits of companies that leader went bust but in an actual practical level. Their revenues are up and their dominance of the auditing business of the footsie. One hundred is up. They have taken taking a lot of terrible press. And they're probably. I'm guessing having a harder. Time recruiting best in the brightest. But I would not cry for them. The thing to remember is this time last year. The kingman kingman review was suggesting that they ought to be separating audit from other other businesses. Maybe broken up do all this stuff and then the CMA. The competition and Markets Authority authority in April said the same thing and they're going to move forward but nothing has actually happened so in fact life continues for them they still make a lot of money. KPMG I'M G. which is the one that has struggled more than the others has been involved in more of the scandals and also it has had prophets problems and so it has had to do meaningful cutbacks? Axum TRIMs They had famous where they stopped paying for people's phone calls and they took a lot of bad press. But I think it's worth remembering that. If you go back maybe a dozen years. You could've made exactly the same argument. Lots of concern about their dominance of the auditing market. Lots of concern. That audits weren't going well. This is remember post Enron and all that sort of thing and there were four them and there are four now so could they to relax a bit and feel that they've survived the structure phone calls over. This will come back. It's not clear. Their regulator has a new person. WHO's in charge of WHO is actually a serious guy and it is possible? He will try to do more at the moment. There's no legislation giving power to him to do more. It will really depend on how much Boris Johnson government cares about this stuff. I mean it was on the agenda of the previous government. Is it now. We don't

"ritz carlton" Discussed on WTVN

"And I was this girl right that's it I didn't expect anybody to do anything with this I was a lot of this is kind of like bar talk we're all laughing about it what hookers in a in a Moscow Ritz Carlton urinating on trump's bed by the way anybody that does president trump before he became president not exactly the type of guy that wants to be around germs let's put it nicely just a fact it was never a real star but that got out before the election look at what that look at how exposed conspiracy theorist hacks like is a cough and David corn are and Dave and and is a call takes a shot at me I'm laughing I'm like oh so you basically took the propaganda fed to you so you could be second sourcing but it was really all original sourcing because they just gave it to you here to make a phone call and sources anyway on the backside of it because there was nobody for him to call so he took it as gospel truth he did it is good duty as a propagandist in the mob and he just prints it so again Russian dossier Russian why is Hillary Clinton bought and paid for Russian why these are disseminated to the American people before the election why to influence the outcome of the election what what what is far been telling us that once once they why do they want Carter page so badly why were they willing to alter a document confirming that he was he working and cooperative and a source for the CIA now I'm reading into this and this is based on my numerous interviews and you might recall a couple of them I'm Mike Carter you not answer my question Carter you're not Carter Carter come on Carter because I I'd figured out at some point along time ago that he was working for the CIA that he was not only a source is an operative for the CIA likely paid he hasn't told me that part I'm I'm just guessing that part but so now we've got Horowitz making it very clear today the Obama FBI likely broke the law now why would that be because if they used an unverifiable document as I have been saying for two and a half years which is the Clinton bought and paid for Russian dossier and its unverifiable because steel said it's unreliable and inspector general horror which goes to the one subsoil worse not even a real source of bar talk source that never thought to be used this way and he says oh my gosh we none of this is true either nobody verified it but James call me took it and the liar that he is he signed it and and at the top of the pies application and has the words verified on it so that would be illegal and that's called spying because once they got once they denied Carter pages civil liberties in his constitutional rights which they don't have any problem doing as we know look at general Flynn odd deputy FBI director McCabe hears from what do I need a lawyer for this all no no no nothing like that at all not one bit call me yeah well I took advantage of the chaos Sunday I I'd never do or get away with and I bomb all bush years wow what a great way to treat a thirty three year veteran of our country way to pay him back is it now is bankrupt now years of his life for gone they threaten to put his kid in jail if he didn't sign something that even the FBI officials didn't believe to be true that he lied to the FBI our city power alerting city Powell I'll three city Powell but anyway but back to my point here Horowitz is explaining today that the FBI gave fi's the FISA court unverifiable fraudulent evidence and they knew what was on verified call me new now in October of twenty sixteen call me signs off on that warrant as it is it well I I just to so much of the people below me were terrier told me was true that's not gonna fly ignorance doesn't fly is a defense stand here's the other part knowledge of what he did is false well let's let's leap forward from October ninety six the first five application full of dot CA Russian bought and paid for Liza Hillary all right then he goes to see then president elect trump trump tower and then he asked for that private moment where he says now I just want you to know those very salacious document exists but it's unverified the opposite of what he said in October before the FISA court in the FISA application with the sign now here's another lie when after he sees trump resigned to more applications renewal applications were no warrants based again on the same thirty dot CA so Horowitz in this hearing earlier today is pointing out that the surveillance without a legal foundation is illegal surveillance being being being being being that means they all broke the law all of them let me take another step further his comment comes after he accused the top officials at the FBI of mis handling this flawed effort with the FISA court to get the authority to surveil Carter page why Carter page because Carter page of the trump campaign associate soul even alter documents that show that he actually loved our country and work for one of our intelligence agencies because once we get the Carter page well then we get into Kerr pages emails once again it was emails we back toward our way into all things trump campaign later transition and then deep into the trump presidency it sounds complicated really is it anyway is an American foreign policy adviser and die he worked on the president's election effort Haaretz was asked today by Lindsey Graham about whether there was a point when surveilling page became unlawful are which first said that is report was sent to the courts to make a decision on whether charges should be filed against anyone at the FBI if you don't have a legal foundation to surveil somebody and you keep doing it is that bad that's the exact wording of the question Graham mass Horowitz absolutely he replied and then he added these magical words basically could have said before and Hannity was right all along but he didn't I don't know why it's not a out maybe it's illegal surveillance it's illegal surveillance he said those are with his words it's not court authorized surveillance and you know everyone was shocked the bar yesterday stating the obvious yeah he was spotted on now senator Ted Cruz today it literally torched the F. B. I.'s handling of this investigation saying that it was based on fraudulent evidence provided by a lawyer at the department of justice a lawyer at the FBI create fraudulent have evidence alters an email that is in turn used as the basis for the sworn statement to the court that the court relies on only the court really expected the gym call me the FBI director would be handing them all on verifiable evidence anyway and then by the way am I stating that accurately cruise says that is correct that is what occurred Harwood said quote if a private citizen did this fabricated evidence with that private citizen be prosecuted they'd certainly be considered for that let's play it so the men women home need to know what's happening a lawyer at the F. B. I. creates fraudulent evidence altars at email that is in turn used as the basis for a sworn statement to the court that the court realized am I stating that accurately that's correct that is what occurred now you have worked in in law enforcement a long time is the pattern of the department of justice employee altering evidence and submitting fraudulent evidence that ultimately gets submitted to the court is that common places that typical I have not seen an alteration of an email and impacting a court document like this any in any ordinary circumstances the private citizen did this fabricated Evans and by the way what he inserted was not just slightly wrong it was a hundred eighty degrees opposite what the evidence sent so the intelligence agency said this guy is a source and he inserted this guy is not a source if a private citizen did that in any law enforcement investigation if they fabricated evidence amber versed what it said in your experience with that private citizen be prosecuted for fabricating evidence be prosecuted for obstruction of justice be prosecuted for perjury they certainly would be considered for that if there was an intentional effort to deceive the court about I'd say check bait senator Ted Cruz good jobs are well done and this is about what's been going on all day here today you know that that this this data you got out of fake fraud journalism yeah they're actually out there in the mob trying to like spend this fake news CNN actually said hurriedly was wrong I'm like are you how are you what are you smoking what do you what whatever it is your whole loosening eating because you are reporting that the dirty bought and paid for Clinton Russian dossier full of rush shouldn't lie is that was on verify a bull was the information used to obtain the warrant on the FISA court what Paul what world are these people living in our what's actually says the FBI is used as the fence a briefing to set up general plan that happened today yeah be I never brief trump's campaign about this fear of the Russians that they might be attempting to infiltrate is can't pay but branded an Obama called Russian stat inspector general testified today that the bureau used an intelligence briefing to gather evidence against trump and general Flynn by the way what's that judges name and the Flinn case all I think this guy's about to beat them down bad because he was the guy that was also said the power wrote about this guy in our book license to lie this guy was the one that that fix the entire mess with that Alaska senator Ted Stevens yeah by the way after was all over for him our which told lawmakers that if it was a strategic counter intelligence briefing I mention that because it's precisely it precisely wasn't a defense a briefing it was an intelligence briefing they were treating they were treated differently and that the agent wrote it up to the file and put the information in the file and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton's campaign got an identical briefing he said but ours was not used by the FBI to collect information on the candidate or on her team and Clinton's campaign was not the subject of the counterintelligence investigation so yeah I'd call maze gang now you got to go back and remember only member that we we had a rate investigation member they changed the wording in may of twenty sixteen to get away from the legal standard in the case of the email server yeah member that member that hello everyone she's finally interviewed by Peter struck July second two thousand and sixteen she has two other people that were involved in the case which is unprecedented in an interrogation and then three days later called me comes out with us you know fifteen minutes statement fourteen of which sounds like holy crap is going to do it but never mind but then again then they you know they ignored the the you know everything involving Clinton the espionage act every subsection of such act and then of course the obstruction of justice issue with the deleted subpoenaed emails and bleach Britain hammers and sim cards and all the above you know seventeen significant errors this was all by design all by design this is so deep and wide I am here's the worst part this is.

A year after Khashoggi's slaying, Saudi clampdown persists

"Wednesday marks a year since Jamal Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. the idea that Saudi operative for plot to kill a man a US journalist inside their own consulate shocked the world after the gruesome details that emerged Mr Shoji was a critic of the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Selmon who is suspected of involvement of the killing NPR checking north of looks at whether he and his kingdom. ice exactly three weeks after the death of Jamal Khashoggi Saudi Arabia held its second annual international investment conference the glittering of van dubbed Davos in the desert was meant to showcase business opportunities in the kingdom a year earlier it brought in some of the biggest names in international banking and investment but not this time a lot of people a lot of phone investors stayed away Christian coats Gourock sin is a Middle East specialist at rice university's Baker institute he says dozens of investors and government officials quickly dropped out of the conference after could show she's killing that was when they were daily revelations about Saudi hit squads and dismemberment but now those horrors have faded and lower expenses Saudi Arabia still has so much oil wealth it's your resistible for many investors they started to come back over the past few months so it's initial outcry and a quiet year few began to go back into Saudi Arabia tempted by the Congress of contracts the Muhammad somebody's trying to push through these young friends was says Nick with the Middle East institute says many investments are being delayed in large part out of concern over crown prince Mohammed bin Selmon the crown prince is widely suspected English oak trees killing despite his repeated denials says Nick says the prince's autocratic tendencies such as detaining hundreds of wealthy Saudis at the Ritz Carlton hotel for several months had already worried foreign investors says Nick says the could show G. killing reinforce those concerns the fight that now the country's a one man show you know means that you're at the mercy of preaching this one person and if you are going to put many millions of dollars in investment and a lot of management time and so on you don't want to be at the mercy of one person that's too dangerous that's on the business side there's also been a political toll at a G. twenty meeting earlier this year picture showed the crown. prince isolated from world leaders accept Russia's Vladimir Putin who gave him a hearty handshake Saudi Arabia has lost arms sales from Germany Denmark and Finland the US Congress his efforts to block arms sales to Saudi Arabia increased after could show she's death the crown prince still has one key supporter president trump who is even cast doubt on the CIA's assessment that the crown prince played a role in could show she's death they have nothing definitive and the fact is maybe he did maybe he did Ben Friedman the director of the foreign influence transparency initiative at the nonpartisan center for international policy says trump is effectively allowing Saudi Arabia to get away with crucial trees killing the Saudis haven't actually paid a large price for the murder of your market share gains insure we can look at what Congress is nine terms of legislation that they've been working on related to arms sales to Saudi Arabia but at the end of the day trump has vetoed every single bill that would have hurt the Saudis in this regard but the race institutes all works in believes ultimately Saudi Arabia will pay a price and I think for the first time. recent history there's no bipartisan support in the Congress in the US political spectrum for for Saudi Arabia and that's going to be concerned because trump will be there forever to protect the crown prince still only works and believes the crown prince will become king because he still has the blessing of his father king someone despite what the rest of the world

"But if that was likely Russian disinformation from the beginning in the dossier and then we see what they did with it I mean just all right to hookers urinating in a bed in in the Ritz Carlton in Moscow Donald trumps bad which you know that's why they had the spreadsheet John Solomon reported ninety some odd percent of this is all garbage the about new was all garbage but in spite of warnings multiple warnings Kathleen calve like Bruce or everybody else steel hates trump Hillary paid for it it's not verified now we know what's on verifiable the dossiers author Christopher steal those same by it okay but you use it any way you use it it gets disseminated to the American people of the poker is hearing it urinating in the bed story that's it doesn't sound like the Russians if it was if it was Russian disinformation likely from the beginning it sounds like the Russians weren't trying to hold Donald Trump which is banned one of the main points and main conspiracies a mainline is from the get go anyway joining us now good friend of the program is done great work all boy do we have news coming next week isn't it great when you know something awesome is come then you can't share with everybody to tell your audience your he's like you jerk you know only because we we are very careful I am you know I said this last night on TV we we double check triple check every source we don't want to get a story wrong thankfully we have not on this big you know two and a half years above I'm feeling layers of an onion but let me start with this you're the executive vice president investigative columnist at the hill right and you broken so many of these stories but I think what you really hit on just this week prior to Mahler could be the biggest piece of the puzzle and that is about George Mitchell said is a guy that well didn't the mother reports suggest he was part of Russian intelligence and the person he's a he's a flash point the start of the entire Russia collusion narrative if you don't have Joseph miss through writing out reaching out to George Papadopoulos in March of twenty sixteen and offering to introduce him to the Russians you don't have a predicate because as we know it was that conversation sort of conversations in March and April that the F. B. I. said prompted them to open up a investigation that became known as operation crossfire hurricane in which gave us this whole bogus Russian collusion narrative for two and a half years so he is the starting point of this entire investigation and in the great lawmakers who questions director Mahler drew out some very important information during the hearing which is they kept asking why didn't you charge Mister if you believe he lied the man who starts the entire investigation you don't charge come in but you can use them of lying and director Mahler could not provide an answer why you charged everybody else of lying but but not miss you and of course that predated by one day the story I had which in which missions lawyer says John there on the new turn US attorney rubber investigating the Russia collusion misbehavior that abuses by the potential boosted by the F. B. I. has reached out and sought an interview with Missy what does that tell us it means that the justice department isn't confident with Mahler's conclusions about Mr into we know from Mister lawyer that Mister lawyer is prepared to provide evidence of the justice department said back but here's the bell for this that his client wasn't some Russians dudes he was a long term western intelligence cooperators collaborator who was passed passed directed to approach George Papadopoulos an offer to make introductions in Russia meaning it could be a set up a western intelligence set up that would flip the entire case on its head okay now it's listed in and it goes to the heart of the issue something we have discussed from the get go to eat where people talk about it as the five buys an alliance our intelligence with United States Great Britain Italy and Australia Australian right and by the way interestingly did we out source some intelligence gathering in ways that would circumvent American law but our friends do it for us but basically ordering it done for us is how big a story is that likely to become here that's a great Russian this I think is a multiple fairy throwing a first off we don't know Mifsud or is water telling the truth and I've seen some documentation which I put in my store you can go to and download the actual documents that would suggest that there's some credence to what they're saying there's some clear evidence that misty was being directed to you introduced Papadopoulos too the Russians and secondly there was some trickery chicanery going on remember everyone in the media was gasping couple years ago the Papadopoulos might have met with Russia with what Amir Putin's needs a woman who is is supposed to be Vladimir people's needs I have seen clear and convincing evidence that the woman who was introduced by Mifsud too Papadopoulos with not a niece but in fact a student posing as a niece that that Mr took off of his campus that's the sort of trickery or OR undercover work and often goes on and either private intelligence ops or government ops I think one of the theories here it could be a government run MI six America who knows another theory was a private intelligence up someone had paid to have this dirty tricks states we don't know yet but the fact that John during his looking at it tells us the answers mother gave the justice department don't seem to be satisfying enough to be Attorney General let me ask you this I was recently got a call from somebody and I've always felt the George Papadopoulos you know he even said and it was reported that he said just the opposite of what people accused him of saying when they use them of lying he said I would I would find a traitorous if somebody alluded with the Russian column that was your column John Simon correct ball and a friend and so many reasons no don't trust this guy don't trust this guy and I looked at them and I said well it arm I have no reason to doubt what he said here and I've been told that there might actually be exculpatory evidence that proves him right that's exactly right remember we've heard multiple times on your show about lawmakers are come on your show referencing transcripts John and I as I many times before you have called for the release of those transcripts they exist I think those are in the process of being declassified I think we're gonna see some news on that the next few weeks but if there are transcripts before the FISA warrant was issued in which the FBI knew that George Papadopoulos not only was was not interested in in getting a Russian dirt and email for the Russians he actually said of doing it the campaign will consider to trees and they would never do that if you use those words it would have undercut the entire allegation they're asking the court for permission to to investigate it's the sort of information you're required under the law to tell the court we think something went on here but we have some evidence it goes the other way we need to show that to you we've heard from deafening as we've heard from John Radcliffe said there's a belief that some of this evidence was not given to the court if that gets the classified in we see really what the FBI knew about Papadopoulos it could really go to the heart of abuse by the FBI and the justice department in the fall of twenty

Airbnb and Marriott Each Want What the Other Has

"Is a little bit of point counterpoint in the hospitality industry to report on today. First of all Airbnb says it's thinking about getting into more formal hoteling it's going to take commercial properties and rent them out at the same time. The Wall Street Journal reports that Marriott is going to start its own Airbnb like thing for renting out vacation homes, cozy atmosphere neighborhood vibe without the sometimes dodgy wildfire clogged sink when confined in an Airbnb. Marketplace's Megan McCurdy Krino has more on what am I take for Marianne to compete in the home sharing market that is so disrupting its business Marianne it's been pointing out in a recent commercial that there are a lot of ways to spend the night with them. Homeboy for Tony. There's Ritz-Carlton for hip. There's w for family friendly, they're Springfield sweets, and for a plain old hotel room there Sheraton thirty hotel brands, endless experiences. Adding home rentals tha that ecosystem makes a lot of sense says Howard Adler, a professor of hotel management at Purdue University really benefits them because they're expanding their their network already. Adler says home rentals could allow travelers to stay under Marriott roof for every trip. They take for business or pleasure and get loyalty points. But there's a catch much of Maryanto. Tell business is independently owned MorningStar analyst, Dan wa- select says home sharing may cannibalize some of that business. There is some, you know, risk vats alienating the traditional hotel franchisees that are joining the Maryanne brand renting out private houses. Even high end ones. Also, poses risks homes and hotels are built with different safety standards. Aroon soon Dhiraj on a professor of business at NYU says that's one example of why it's going to be difficult for Marriott in another hotel chains to compete head on with Airbnb. I think Airbnb has made depot. Inroads into the hotel business than any of the hotel chains will into the home shedding business. Andy says Mary interest in the market makes the home sharing business. Look more attractive as Airbnb prepares for its IPO later this year.

Although although he is staying at Trump International in Washington, and he does approve of Trump International we are going to the White House late today. And I think I'll tell the president that Horst likes Trump International horse. Will you tell us the story of this amazing brand Ritz Carlton? How was it? Born. I was I was working. Chop by that was offered to start his new company that develop as an money people had to adults in construction and wonder credit on brand I got the offer to somebody that I knew very well. And what's recommended them? They hired me. I moved to Atlanta from Chicago. And started this new company we acquire the Ritz Carlton in Boston, which was the dilapidated hotel at the time. And it gave us an end up because name was richest. And so on we close it for invasion and the next to tell that was an Atlanta. What happened we had? We had I was able to hire great people and together, we created some excellent. But it started with us establishing vision and purpose and even the bible says you will perish without purpose. And and in fact, are startled said the greatest fulfillment. Live is if you have purpose and belonging. So I developed a purpose we've to create the finest brand in the world that was and people laughed at me. Wait a minute. We don't even have hotel still. That's still dot somewhere. That's still a decision. We make route one to accomplish that. It's like a mustard seed doesn't. So we started with that in mind. And we made sure that we hire the right people be selected people to join us not to work for us. But join our joy, not listen, ladies and gentlemen. Join us sewing, we'd be told them who VR and said don't come here to join us to creating excellence in order to accomplish that we did we told them the vision, it's not different Adam Smith three hundred years ago said the wealth of nations, but he wrote another book and vici determined that human being cannot relate to orders and direction. And what we do in business. We give autism direction. Instead, he said people can relate to objective and motive without about for a purpose and a motive of that purpose. So clearly established on objective and the motive for it in the connected be short everybody here. This is our motive that together we will create excellence that together we we will get recognition we grow. We have opportunity we have honor and respect because of what we do to get. And we -ccomplish that many people. I in fact, I was and a half ago. I saw was in a five star dinner all the create hotel years of the world. And it was mentioned that I'm in the room, and they stood up and applauded wait. A second whom to applaud me. No, no, no, no. The applauded the image that Ritz Carlton accomplished because of create mates and create postpone create doorman crew cooks. Craig miniature creek vice-presidents. That's what applauded not me because it will not me. So but said I would like to applaud them altuve today, and as part of the book to honor them, and and what what else? What how did they benefit from it? But its employees looked for a job, and they were one hundred others applying. They got it because of the image that we created to get because we made a decision to create excellence. Explain this story told last night how whatever your job in the hotel. You understood the other things then how if the chambermaid was asked what time does the restaurant open. She knew it was key. Everybody knew everything right key everybody. Everybody has to be aligned my goodness. And so what we what we did unlike most people in the high appeal, I will be selected employees Sweden just hired kit. Elect not hire these words are so important. Join join the T V asked the join us and on the first day. We didn't tell them what their function is. We told them what we think what we believe we asked him to be part of this belief system of caring for people respecting people unimpeachable honoring each other at work. Come to work for excellence, we explained that the first day, and we explained. Dan, we explained all in the first days the whole functional foretell being Biden be short short him going on their part. And then what we did. And that was a key be redeveloped twenty points that would make a successful and day repeat one of those points. Nobody can go to the all learned today, for example point eleven if you get a complaint you own it. Whoever gets the gets a complaint owns it. Like in the morning. The guest comes to work comes to do to breakfast. The waiter says a hope get a nice night. And he said, no, my TV change. It didn't work. That moment the way the owns the TV change. Wow. And you should send now please forgive me. And is empowered. I will buy your breakfast because of bad that's in parliament. And it's teamwork and the CBA, but everybody's talks about two things today every business and alignment and empowerment gone. Find out they're not empowered to make any decisions. No, you're talking about real. Haven't in fact in Ritz Carlton and Capella, which is the company created after every employee was empowered to mega decision up to two thousand dollars to keep the guest any employee any employees, keep the guest. Now. That's how you that's how you build a reputation with the customer. That's it. And that's how I taught my employees that we respect them. Then they can make a decision that they're part of us and the trust that they feel because you have expressed to them you have given them that power. It sounds so simple. It sounds so common sense. But you just know it's not happening across thousands of businesses in America today. I see it all the time. They're not even know. But when the company goes on even know what is the objective of the company. I wanna be fifty years. One five years this supposed to belong if you don't.

Of the late Anthony bourdain she was also one of the very first women to come forward and say that. Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted her I think. She said he raped her I. Think she did as well so there is a story that came out today that is getting a lot of attention and she is now denying the allegations. That. Were made against her okay so this bombshell report that just came out over the weekend said that, she paid, actor and musician Jimmy Bennett three hundred eighty thousand dollars last year after he accused her of giving him a whole lot of booze and molesting him years earlier when he was a teenager Now she's. Saying. Okay she paid the hush money only to stave off negative publicity so Harvey Weinstein's attorney was all, over the, place this morning talking about this saying essentially okay isn't this interesting she's accusing Harvey Weinstein of assaulting her when she leaves he's not being charged for an assault No no no that's right right right, right Louis arena back to manage the Yeah. Absolutely and she she. Was really part of the beginning of the metoo move talked about this yesterday she gave the fiery speech at the Cannes film festival in, the first payment of one hundred thousand dollars went to this kid in April and she says that.

Wealth and had his own reputation as. A beloved figure public figure to protect. Anthony insisted the matter be handled privately and this was also what Bennett wanted Anthony was afraid of the possible negative publicity that, such a person whom he considered, dangerous. Could have brought, upon, us yesterday said I wonder how Anthony bourdain figures individual why? Would she hey, why would why would she like you be, face, of, this, but you, know, the, cycle.

Deal compassionately, with Bennett's demand for helping. Give it to him Anthony personally undertook to help Bennett economically upon the condition that we would no longer suffer any further instructions. In our life Harvey Weinstein's lawyer of course saying that this settlement shows that are Cento is hypocrites well.
