Grubhub Accused of Overcharging Restaurants Amid COVID Pandemic in New Lawsuits
"Ingram hub in new york city a lot of restaurants. We're finding that they were getting charged for phone calls. Now you think about that. And you're like that's kind of weird. How could grub charge a restaurant for a phone call. The way they do that is when you go to the grub up pitch for your favorite restaurant they generate a number that route routes through grub hub. I so you're actually calling the restaurant but not before grab the mafia daughter for you right. But like this is why they feel like it's mafia. They opened the door for you. They're not providing any service besides discovery. Personally i've done this. I i wanna call the restaurant directly order from them and reduced that mission costs so i go and they don't like maybe have a website or maybe grow is the first thing that shows up so i clicked on crop up. Call that phone number now. I know they are not getting a benefit from that. They're still being charged. And what's weird about it is. They can't determine the order that you've done so they do like an average so like they between like for this restaurant the hampel noodle the ex-pat in in harlem charging like five to eight dollars five to seven dollars about like approximately per order so like if i'm ordering like an eleven dollar noodles myself and now they're being charged five to seven dollars for that like that's a crazy amount of money. In a lot of cases it's an algorithm that was determining how charge because there's nobody on the phone listening. Actually i listening to the calls so the algorithm says this call last thirty seconds. It's an order but sometimes it wasn't an order. The person was like hey like do you have this dish like and they were like no and i actually hung up and drop hub was actually chart charging for that. Oh this is. there's a lawsuit actually a couple of lawsuits. That have happened outside of new york city or people have sued for group. Says like you're right. We should only charge for orders on the phone that resulted order so they still believe that like it should be able to get money also phone call orders but they basically saying there are a lot of fraudulent charge. There are some fraudulent charges that

Ted's Woodworking, Its a Scam
"Hello friends have. I got a deal for you. My name is doug. This is the thumb and hammer. Home improvement podcast. And if you're like me you have searched the internet looking for woodworking plans. Well what if. I told you that you could get thousand plans for the low low price of only sixty seven dollars while there's this guy. His name is ted. Woody mcgrath. Now you know. He's legit because after all his nickname is woody. So he's obviously a woodworker. Because every woodworker i know is nicknamed woody right any. He spent decades compiling woodworking plans that he is offering to sell for the low low price of only sixty seven dollars. Now consider the most plan self around five ten bucks each on the internet. How could you possibly go wrong. How indeed. you've no doubt seen the ads on facebook or other websites than i am. Of course talking about ted's woodworking. And like i said to have access to such a vast array of plans for under a hundred bucks seems like the best deal ever. Steve ramsey of woodworking for mere mortals posted several videos about this offer back in two thousand twelve. Other woodworkers woodworking sites and forums and youtube channels have reviewed and researched and warned against ted's woodworking. But it has never gone away and it seems to be flooding. My facebook feed now more than ever different website. You are of course but all leading to the same landing pages

I've seen a lot of one two and three games most of them.

Imagine it's much worse than seven dollars. Yeah hopper although the one the one thing about time rick at one three. Is that the one.

He remains at twenty bucks. I think that's solid I need depending on your image. You can like it can be interesting to really choose the pot in these types of arts and raise like twenty five to thirty or something but i think twenty definitely accomplishes our goal here which is to put more money than you typically would in the pot based on the situation
Here Comes Biden's Generous Tax Credit for Electric Vehicles
"Everybody robbing our here and stay. We've got a bit of an update from yuan on the next iteration of the model y at giga berlin and texas. We've got a press conference for president. Biden at ford advocating for his instructor plan some news on tests stock from renaissance technologies and new research and a couple other stories as well. We'll start off with the stock. You're quickly tesla today. Finishing up two tenths of a percent to five hundred seventy seven dollars. Eighty seven cents a rare over performance for the stock as of late outpacing. The nasdaq which was down. Six tenths of a percent but to again just kind of drive the point home from yesterday's episode where we talked about the influence of rotation things that art innovation. Etf today up one point four percent before we get into the updates from. I did just want to quickly talk about. Biden's press conference and updates today on them structure plan. I think this was probably the most discussed topic that i saw out there for tesla today and kind of for good reason. I think the concerns. That were heightened. Today around this infrastructure plan are threefold. The first two are in one line of release statement from the white house on the instructor plan to day sharing a couple of details about how a consumer electric vehicle tax credit might be structured. It says quote these incentives will not go towards expensive luxury models and will also incentivize manufacturers. Who use good labor practices and quote so the first concern. They're being okay. Expensive luxury models. What exactly does that mean. It's unclear at this point in time and in second they're also using good labor practices. What exactly does that mean. We know that is a big union guy. Self-proclaimed and tesla is of course not unionized which i think brings in the third amplification of concern which was biden's press conference itself in which he frequently and consistently emphasized unions so bringing those down for the first concern in terms of expensive luxury models. I don't share too much of a concern on that. I think if we see an exclusion it's going to be an a price ban that still accommodates tussles model three model. Why lots of the competition right now is sitting in that price band including offerings from ford. Which biden was presenting today. Both with the ford mckee and then presumably also with the ford f one fifty lightning which was actually onstage behind biden at his

That second bit more complicated younger kids can just learn to double and just to get those ideas and because doubling his wit in you a big numbers really really fast as that old story about the guy who invented chest being given you know asking for a grain of rice on the first square and a second grade and two grains of rice on the second and four on the third and the emperor of china saying y'all do that and he was bankrupt by halfway across the board because it doubles facet.

"I think we will. I spent quite a lot of time with them. And i think they have great ideas. There's a there's a. There's a humility actually in i think particularly in the zuma generation you don't often see An and i think that there i find inspiring and i i you know last year the year before spent quite a bit of time working with a bunch of students here working on the thousand dollar general and there was just really really good fun. I'm getting ideas back from them. But i'm really glad you picked up on on. Why the word happy is in is in the title of the book because you know happy ever after is about security and just the idea of an and that's the happy that money can bring. I'm happy doesn't bring any other kind. Here's a money doesn't bring any other kind of of happy. The only thing that can bring is is the sense of okay. I don't need to worry about this right now. And that's a huge type of happy. They're kind of. It can enable the other kinds as well which as you said spending money it com bring. And i think that's some so much of what i i think. I had those conversations with my daughter for the idea to put it all into one place and i think you know you haven't seen the book yet. We'll try sure. Get a copy too soon as possible but so you can see it fun too. So that she's having a laugh and the characters in the book is a there's a princesses who's a bit spoiled and we don't talk about who she is based on that. Obviously it might be someone in my family and being talked to by her talking frog And all these various stories that would come through. We the emperor's new clothes but instead he had the emperor's new monday because he he works out that he could print money on paper because up until that is being magic gold coins. So we try. And we've stores all the way through it that i actually related to finance but in a way that kind of just get slows messages through in a slightly fun 'way rather than saying spend money because you know kids don't learn from what we say learned from what we do and they learn from the other combat the better conversations. We have and the things that they can see around. And that's why. I felt like writing it down and her seeing the way you know what i do and what you know what my wife and i do that would ring more true than just saying doug to this. Don't do this. don't do this because it just becomes kind of top beliefs. That they do want to do it. Yes i love that you mentioned the best.

"Yeah i mean. I look this. It's it's the standard index for the planet However what i would say is if you've got a if you can find something the makes you excited Then by all means have a look at that. But don't yet don't get into things that are too too far away from a risk you should take and what i mean by that is actually one of the stages we talk about in the book in investing is had to have integrity with your investing and that means a lot of things. One is integrating it to your life and that means you should. You should try to avoid risks. You don't need to take you if you don't need to be an options trader. Don't be an option trader. If you're an american and you're gonna live in america royal life the s. and p. five hundred index is exposing you to the bulk of your economy. That's a good place to get exposed as a place you should be exposed. And so that's integrating it into your life now if in a different way. Let's say you care about the environment and you want to invest in clean technologies. That's the kind of integrity you can have and say okay. This matches who i am alone. The invest in this and. That's where we think people should have integrity and match what they the way. They intend to live their lives. Just as we would a house you know. There's no need for you in in in the us to rush out and buy a house. In japan for example that would be taking a risk. You don't need even if it's incredibly cheap even if you think it's going to go up just a risky don't need and so that's one of the things we talked about through in in the investing segment trying to have integrity him in your vestment match it to who you are and things that you should do. So if we're talking to mainly americans then by all means yea it should be the s. and p. Five hundred is where stop. I love that michael. That is really empowering advice..

"I try and convince people that a lot of people think they come to finance because they think they're not good with a and there's a lot of insecurity around the number side of of finance personal finance as a lot of maths in really important parts of finance. The really important parts of financed are actually psychological. They're actually do this. Developed the habit understand this Believe you can do it and then do it. And that's really so much what we aim for him in. The book is saying overcome. Those insecurities overcome those doubts. Start doing things now. And you'll see him enormous changes and i'll give you one example when we talk about investments. We don't talk any about very specific investments. We talk about in general ways trying to encourage people to just get started. Because if i talk about something specific next week it will be different and the week after that. It'll be different again. What we really want people to understand that if you're not investing you're taking the most enormous rescue can by not being exposed to capital markets buying it being exposed to them over sudden. You're actually taking less risk. You're putting your money to to grow with the rest of the capital base of the planet. And that's actually where your capital should be. It's where you'll saving should be and to move to that one step. Once you've taken that step you'll learn so much more you're on a journey then and that journey will end up paying paying for the rest of your life if you keep pushing the money way and all of that is psychological. Not numeracy not finance not theory. Just practical psychology So where do you suggest that if you're a young adult or even a middle aged woman in maybe even the moms listening. Maybe they already have a financial adviser but they wanna start kind of practicing this on their own learning themselves instead of just handing over to an expert. Where do you suggest people that are in that situation star as far as you know finding out which investments are the best. Is there specific apps or websites. You recommend i think the best place to start is actually vanguard huge organization. The guy who who founded it jack bogle. That's there's a wonderful thing bogle heads who are his followers who track So many of the indices the are very important And you're in particularly if you're in the us it's harder and the rest of the world because the index is that we invest in the rest of the world a much smaller than the american indexes. But if you're looking to the us you go things like the s. and p. five hundred which five hundred amazing amazing companies if you buy if you put whatever the smallest increment is you can buy that. That's maybe it's twenty dollars or thirty dollars into an s. and p. five hundred index. That is all of a sudden. You've now got a five hundred stock portfolio. That's an amazing. Starting position and those are not just any oh companies. These are some of the best companies in the world if you build it up over time and you stop doing it. Seeing which companies make you more which companies haven't done so well you may have times dot wanting to individually get more exposure to it but i you know you don't have to take my word for that bidding good idea. The warren buffett's will states that you know after his death his family will have ninety percent of their money put into the s. and p. five hundred index. Run by van god. And so if it's if it's good enough. Warren buffett to right into his will..

"I don't think there's a lot of resources out there. These days that are marketed towards teenagers in being a parent that just sent her oldest daughter off to college. I understand what you were wondering if she even knew what money is because basically it's always there for them as they're growing up and as they launched into the world they'd have to start realizing that that's just not gonna fall off a tree somewhere. They're going to have to earn it. So i think the timing is perfect. I honestly can't wait to get a copy for my daughter You know. And i think that one thing is apparent that was sending my daughter out into the world. That scared me as a night. Several times as many people are going to tell you to get a credit card and i kept saying. Do not get into it. Because you're gonna feel like you have more money than you actually have So scary because once they go to college. You're not always there to protect them from berar mistake Did you have similar kinds of conversations with your daughter as you are sending her out to college. I what we did was. We worked around the book and that was for me. It was really handy that she's a kind of person rather than a finance person. So i i kind of used to have used the book to have all those conversations with her. We had talks about credit cards. We had she. She got a debit cont. I i was fine with doing that to you. Know make some spending a little bit easier rather than the credit cut But yet might my biggest worry was the fact and let's be fair. I was almost angry. No almost actually angry.

What's something simple that the moms listening today can implement to kind of change kind of make sure that they're they're covering this topic in their home Especially if you was you know as well as i did when you send a child after college you start to get panicky feeling. Teach them everything they need to know. But we're still teaching them even when there are out of the home so what can be something. Specific moms can do today the kind of headed in this direction. I think it's opening in an investment account a savings account in an investment account and showing the money going from there before it goes anywhere else. That's the most important thing if you can work out what it is you need to say even a month and you can separate that and you can before it goes anywhere else when when the money's just come in to take it out and to send it to the investment account before anything else and you can do that with the kids either with your money if the kid's too young or if you're giving the kids pocket money send it to that workout with them. How much they can save and how much they should be saving and make sure when you talk to the kids about saving that it's not about saving to spent it's about saving for longtime get that idea into the head those value in that really touches on the things that the book is all about. That's about getting that long-term approach thinking getting the idea. Saving an investing happens before any kind of spending. I think the last thing i do with you got a young kid is. I'd play with them. Around compounding just a little bit of maths around compounding because compounding is is the thing that tons you know the seven dollars into a million you know it. It's you money becomes if you if you save a dollar today and it just makes some temporal turns it becomes thirty two dollars by the time you're fifty that's the the impact of compounding and i it's useful for kids to even youngest kids to learn.

"In one other thing that i really love that you said a little bit earlier That i am passionate about is the fact that you're telling you know your daughter or other young adults in the book about the difference between buying things become happy and true happiness which is something. I teach all the time because i'm a professional organizer. It's just the fact of the matter. Is you have a marketing company constantly. Tell you spend your money over here because these things will make you happy but the truth of the matter is that happiness that you get from. Those things only lasts a short amount of time. I mean sometimes it could be over within a few days. So that i think true happy not only comes from you know things like giving being a good steward helping others but also contentment. With what we in. There's a lot to be said with hammocks security gives us happiness and this year yet takes me that warren stress from your life and you're teaching your daughter and other you know kids around the world that that stuff is not going to last for a long period of time especially not fifty years. Think about the amount of stuff that you had on your seventeen that you don't have any more in canada. Remember what it was in. No not only would you not remember. You don't need it or want anymore. So i think that's really really important here. In the one thing. I do notice is i do think that these kids nowadays are maybe a little smarter in how they spend is because i i i also own a business has to deal with Consignment and i've heard that you know the young adults now. They're unsocial They're not as interested in buying brand new outfits in spending. You know five times. The cost really into consignment or thrift shopping because they want to get more closed for less money. And it's when. I hear things like that. It just helps me feel confident about today's youth. That maybe not going to.

"Who are his followers who track So many of the indices the are very important And you're in particularly if you're in the us it's harder and the rest of the world because the index is that we invest in the rest of the world a much smaller than the american indexes. But if you're looking to the us you go things like the s. and p. five hundred which five hundred amazing amazing companies if you buy if you put whatever the smallest increment is you can buy that. That's maybe it's twenty dollars or thirty dollars into an s. and p. five hundred index. That is all of a sudden. You've now got a five hundred stock portfolio. That's an amazing. Starting position and those are not just any oh companies. These are some of the best companies in the world. And if you build it up over time and you stop watching it seeing which companies make you more. Which companies haven't done so well you may have times dot wanting to individually get more exposure to it but i you know you don't have to take my word for that bidding good idea. The warren buffett's will states that you know. After his death his family will have ninety percent of their money put into the s. and p. five hundred index. Run by van god. And so if it's if it's good enough. Warren buffett to right into his will. It's really good enough for the rest of us until we learn a lot more head to i love that. So that's something simple they can do. They can go to vanguard checkout the s. and p. five hundred and they can figure out what is the minimum investment and then keep an eye on the companies and then start to get not only a feel for where to direct more money or less money but also get some passion behind it right when you start to see what maybe these companies are doing what they stand for I think that's executor.

"And i told my daughter that i just saw her eyes light up like she got it. She could be a millionaire. She never thought she could xix seven dollars at a time. And what is i think. Some important rather than kind of teaching lessons is finding inspiration and if we can inspire kids to live in a in a healthy way then it takes an inner the really yes. I love that. I love the fact that you use the word inspiration because when these kids go off to college you know of course. They all think they're going to become millionaires. They think that they're all going to end up bridge because they went to college. But you're giving them specific practical steps. That are quite simple. The even a college student can afford seven dollars a day. It's just one less. You know latte at starbucks and they can actually start implementing this earlier than they think so without giving everything in the book away. Can you kind of talk about some of the steps that discussing the book on how to get these kids thinking this way. Actual actionable steps that they can start taking if maybe they're listening to the show today. Yes so what. The book is structured along a used the an acronym of mission just to come to keep it really simple. The mission is obviously to become financially free but mission stands for money income staving spending investing honing then the most important one. Now which is when you start because you can start some of these things right now. There are things to begin wherever you are on that journey. There is something you can do today. And so for when we when we talked about money when money and income. One thing things i wanted to do with my daughter was to give her the idea that you don't have to go and get a job if you want to intern and there is no good internships. Do you want to start something. Start side gig stott some kind of business because there's no there's no limits on it and in many ways in to open yourself to becoming an entrepreneur when you're seventeen eighteen and you can take that kind of risk and you can learn lessons about what what a business actually does. I thought that would be inspirational for her to to have triumphed that. So that's one of the things we engage within in high for for income saying there isn't just one way of getting money. There's there's two you worked for other people or you work for yourself. But then i mean something like saving. That was really important. Because it's there's a phrase that we use in the thousand dollar journals which is very very simple version of this and that's just saving becomes before spending and if you can learn at four letter forward phrase.

"You need to get money in. You need to keep it. You don't have to spend like everybody else. And then you can start investing. That can change your life. I love well first of all. Congratulations on the success of the book. I love that you row. Happy ever after Because you want it to be simple or a a teenager to understand. I don't think there's a lot of resources out there. These days that are marketed towards teenagers in being a parent that just sent her oldest daughter off to college. I understand what you were wondering if she even knew what money is because basically it's always there for them as they're growing up and as they launched into the world they'd have to start realizing that that's just not gonna fall off a tree somewhere. They're going to have to earn it. So i think the timing is perfect. I can't wait to get a copy for my daughter You know. And i think that one thing is apparent that was sending my daughter out into the world. That scared me as a night. Several times as many people are going to tell you to get a credit card and i kept saying. Do not get into it. Because you're gonna feel like you have more money than you actually have So it's scary. Because once they go to college. You're not always there to protect them from berar mistake Did you have similar kinds of conversations with your daughter as you are sending her out to college. I what we did was. We worked around the book and that was for me. It was really handy that she's a kind of bookish person rather than a finance person. So i i kind of used to have used the book to have all those conversations with her. We had talks about credit cards. We had she. She got a debit cont. I i was fine with doing that to you. Know make some spending a little bit easier rather than the credit cut But yet might my biggest worry was the fact and let's be fair. I was almost angry. No almost actually angry. The my kids have spent twelve plus years in education and no point. Had anyone bother to mention money and you know it from where i live you know. I had that. They had to get a private education. Because i live overseas and he was an expensive private education. It still wasn't mentioned it just isn't taught. I think world people say that parents can teach this. Who's teaching the parents. How are we supposed to know how to teach kids as well to me i do. I work in finance. I've worked in finance for over twenty years. And so a lot of the things i could bring to it. It's kind of bizarre. Because i had to had to simplify. I didn't want to dumb it down because it's not dumbing it down but it's just taking things from the very beginning like you said there's lots of we all have different specific worries like credit cards or like investing just kinda getting caught up in overall consumers right thinking that you must buy things to make yourself happy and it and the goal of the book is really to take every single one of those one simple step at a time and say this is have money comes in. This is how you keep it before you do anything else. You save your money before you spend..

Twenty twenty four missing in june. Okay missing in september fine but the amount he missed nine months into the pandemic look. I'm not saying i could do it. But i'm also not getting paid. Who knows how many tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars to do it. Apple's read auto in part of a note whole wrote according to his firm's data. Pc shipments for the december quarter hit eighty nine point seven million units up twenty six percent year on year beating the bank's expectation by twenty one percent consumer side sales. Were up twenty. Seven percent beating their expectation by eighteen commercial. Sales were up. Twenty five percent beating their expectation by twenty four percent while he's apparently good at being wrong about computers. in general. We've come to know hall over the past couple of years for being wrong about apple in particular. Didn't used to be that way. Not sure what changed whatever it was. He doesn't appear to be changing back quoting his note. Apple rose thirty five percent year on year. End up with the sheriff fifteen percent up. One percentage point year-on-year that we note that. I'm wanting max where likely in short supply in the corridor. Quoting another part of his note. Hp lost share due to supply constraints while apple grew slightly faster than the market driven. In part by. Its new am one. Max looking ahead. We expect this general p strength to persist in the first half but we can in the second half driven by reopening as well as tougher compares to be fair hall said basically the same thing in a note back in december still do atypically typically apple three dot did not list halls rating and price target on apple shares. The last mentioned the boat was in the wake of apple's last call when hall stuck to his cell rating on apple shares. He did up as priced at that time.

A Quick Guide to Multipliers
"If you play one hundred dollars through a slot and there's a seven times multiplier going on that day. It's as if you played seven hundred dollars through the slot as far as your comps goes. That doesn't mean getting seven dollars worth of let. Let's take an example. Let's say that. Normally if you play one hundred dollars to a slot machine you would get ten cents in comps that you could spend. Somehow if there's a seven times multiplier going on you'll get seventy cents for that hundred dollars that you played through. So that's basically what it is right. They multiply your reward points right now. They're different kinds of multipliers. Sometimes they're multipliers on your tier points. You know as far as your tier status goes other times. The multiplier is on wealth for caesar's anyway they're called reward credits the credits that you can actually spend like cash and julio actually followed up with an email to he was wondering in this case it sounded like it was only slots and he wondered if it ever happens with table games. Yes definitely in fact. I'd say most of the time when multipliers are offered it applies to any game that you're playing in the casino that's the way it is at harris southern california right now there may be some little rules here and there for example at harris southern california. If there's a ten times multiplier day on reward credits that will apply to every game except if you look at the small print except video poker. It's usually half and it only be five times. 'cause they figure well there's not as high a house edge on video poker is there are onslaught so sometimes you know depend on the game that you're playing but yeah you always watch out for these promotions because sometimes it can really pay off. I think right now. Sunday's are the multiplier every week at harrah's and it's hard for me to get out there. Mike on sundays on days when we've gone from multipliers. Oh my gosh we have gotten so many reward credits that we can use to spend
The Personal Chef Chris Spear On What The Job Entails
"You tell us a bit more of what. These job consists of what's What's your role sure. There's a couple of different ways that people do the personal chef thing. I think most commonly a lot of personal chefs do the in-home weekly meal. Prep type things. But what. I really wanted to focus on giving people a restaurant experience in their home so i don't do any meal prep i don't have like recurring clients. I mean i definitely have repeat clients. But what i do. Is i build a customized menu preferences of my guests. So i send them a questionnaire. Find out what they like. And don't like any diet preferences. And then i show up with everything. I bring my china all the cooking pots and pans. All the food and i make everything for them there and then i go set the table and serve it to them and we do afford a six course meal and it's really similar to going out to a restaurant so and you said that this is something that you do customized in and as you have a null like repeat customer so it must be very. It's must be like a tough set up in business as well one of your Be bingoing ease always to look for you know for new customers one hundred percent. That's the biggest thing is this week. I'm good but next week. I'm still struggling. As of this point. Like i have to events and i probably need to get to more. And you know you're always hustling every single day just to get another dinner. And that is the exhausting part of it. It's not like. I have a set thing where i know. I'm cooking for three or four families every week. It's just the same as if you in a restaurant you don't know from one day to the next business is going to be like. And so you attended like culinary school traditional canary school while only on so you made a decision. I think in your career that union wanting to work at the restaurant betsy you work on Food service companies like decks. So so what made you take the decision. A couple of things. I think one culinary school is ridiculously expensive. I went to johnson wales. I got a four year bachelor's degree and came out with student loan debt remaining of either pay four hundred and four dollars a month for ten years. That was what i had left after already paying for some and you know i graduated ninety eight and when you got out what the market was looking like is at seven dollars an hour cooking jobs and i couldn't live on that but i found a job working in a retirement community and they were offering me eleven fifty an hour but i also got you know. Two weeks paid vacation medical benefits for a one k. All that stuff and it sounded great. So i definitely the finances were a big part of that but i also say just. I never really loved that restaurant. Experience the kitchen life though working till two in the morning just kind of i think a lot of the attitudes of the chefs working in restaurants. I applied for jobs out of culinary school in. Wisconsin turned off by the attitude of many of the hiring executive chefs. I just thought these guys sound alike jerks. And i don't really want to work for them
T-Mobile has a new 5G wireless plan
"You're obviously going to hear a lot more about five g this year as the major wireless carriers continue to make those networks available to more consumers among them is t mobile which just revealed details on a new plan coming up. Yes indeed yet. T. mobile's announce a new magenta. Max plan which takes place of the magenta plus plan and it will cost about the same that that plan had which was about fifty four dollars per line a month for three line plan but for a limited time you can sign up for a three line plan. That is about forty seven dollars per line per month that includes all taxes fees when you use auto pay now a single line under the magenta mex plan costs eighty dollars but each additional added brings down the overall auto pay costs forty seven dollars under the current promotion and this plan is also available for small businesses can cover up the twelve employees. Now why would you wanna do this. If you already have a plan or on another carrier t mobile says its new unlimited five g and four g premium data plan. That data will not be slowed. No matter how much data you use. Now why would you wanna do that. If you already have a plan or on another carrier t mobile says its new unlimited five g and four g premium data will not be slowed. No matter how much data you use under this new plant competing unlimited plans may temporarily slow data after certain milestones reached. Now with this new plan. You also get more hotspot data forty gigabytes up from twenty gigabytes of the current plan. You get the stream. Four k video and previously hd and several other features including free scam blocking and caller. Id new customers who do not have a five g phone can trade in the current phone and get a new five g. Won t mobile's twenty four month interest. Free plan t will also let customers on other plans bring their five g phone over and pay off up to six hundred and fifty dollars of existing payments for that phone without any switching costs. So can i just say if i hear another service that uses the word plus max to describe itself. I'm probably gonna pull what's left of my hair out. I feel like every single service of late is a plus max. There have to be other words but anyway so we're seeing five g roll out. Obviously how good is it right now. So bread is still far from being available everywhere. Here in northern. Virginia i get five g connectivity on on the verizon iphone have and also on the samsung t mobile phone i use but around the us t mobile currently covers more than two hundred and eighty million americans with its five g network but just more than one hundred million with the super fast speeds that get you to the three hundred gigabytes per second range now in comparison with traditional phones. Use four g lt. You're lucky to get fifty megabits per second. Now t mobile said it plans to reach two hundred million this year with the super fast speeds in recent tests run by open signal from for the month of january t mobile users connected to five g. Almost one third of the time thirty percent eighteen five g users connected eighteen percent of the time and verizon connected nine point five percent now. These are all improvements for the month of january according open signal. What's tests five g around the country. The good news is that typically t. mobile's actions lead to movement by the competition so all consumers might be seen better deals and kind of in the days ahead. I'll
Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground
"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

It's only twenty seven dollars, and you can schedule an appointment, come in, and we'll get you going on the road to health and on the road to possibly shopping different petites. So I got you beat on that one. What were you what was your number your number was sixty days and Bruce was sixty days, fifty six pounds and six feet on that one? I got I'm ashamed to say, well, I'm not ashamed to say I don't really know his first name because he's in the Brooklyn office this gentleman. And so I believe that his pictures, his before, and after is actually on our website, already, sixty four pounds in sixty days. Oh, yeah. No. You're talking about sixty four pounds in sixty days. And he took a great profile picture of himself. This gentleman is wearing a white shirt and a tie. And so the profound pictures fantastic. So if you guys get a chance, definitely go to nj diet dot com. And take a look at that profile picture, sixty four pounds in sixty days is very impressive. Man woman. It doesn't matter how old you are. I mean it really is. It's an an astronomical number in my opinion, police officers, something, I think something to this effect. Again, I don't know the patient, personally because I don't go to the Brooklyn office, but, you know, this is just a staggering number and really just the health benefits officer, and he's chasing criminals around a bit. You can do it much easier sixty four pounds down. I would think so, so we improve the safety of our cities. Yes, that's correct. If you can chase down criminals. Listen. When win win win one at a time. Right. So, but, you know, the pounds of great, but I think that a lot of what we see in our office is really the health benefits of what happens and. You know, just losing ten twelve or fifteen pounds can make such a huge difference in how you feel and what your blood tests are where your numbers are. So we had stand who just was in, and he's on day, thirty three of the program. He went from two seventy two to forty four which is twenty seven pounds in thirty three days, which, by the way is not a tremendous number for a man. Typically, you know for a man that has a lot of weight to lose in thirty three days. We'll see anywhere probably anywhere between thirty six to forty pounds, however will overcome. However his health results or hit overall health benefits have been ridiculous. So his blood pressure is now one oh, four over sixty four which I would say, probably a little low apply right? His cholesterol. Paul. Went down to one oh, nine from from two twenty eight. Well, so his HDL is at forty six and his LDL is at forty two down from ninety seven. His triglycerides are now one hundred seven down from two fifty eight. This is day thirty three of the program. Well, I mean, I would think, well, that's basically what his doctor actually said to, because I guess he had a doctor's appointment, like thirty three day into the program, which we usually tell people, you know, wait until you're done with the program, and then go to your primary care physician and kind of do the blood work and all that other stuff. But his appointment was already scheduled. So he figured he'd go right? So his primary care fell off the chair. Absolutely just blown away. He asked him what he was doing. He was like I don't understand. He's like, you'll hear a couple of months ago, you know, your numbers were a disaster, basically, you know, and his case like Yaar asked how much energy I'm doing this doing that feel so good. Put that. That's really what's cool. I think right. Thirty three days in and literally he's basically almost off all of his medications. It's, it's tremendous tremendous. So I think that those are the coolest results. Right. And we talk about that in the office of time the health, part of it is the best part night, and we're able to do that, because of the personalization of the of the of the system, people come in with his hair and saliva. We use bloodwork analysis. We used DNA analysis as well and from saliva, and we were able to look at, you know, blood work in a functional level and, and see what's up laments. What support people need? And it's so everybody gains weight in different areas. For reason, the bodies, generally trying to protect those areas because of errors hormone disruption. And so you've got the different body types. You've got the, the flappy overhanging belly fat could be an internal issue protruding hard belly fat deliver, the that, that thyroid issue with the apple shape, apple shape, generally thyroid imbalances. The pear shape reproductive, imbalances doesn't really matter. Could be. Any number of things. And so we're able to use the bio energetic scans that we use from hereon, saliva, used bloodwork assessment tool to see when a functional level to keep to keep keep the body functioning better, not so much diagnosing disease. And so then personalized, the system personalized, the supplements for each individual to help get that one person into fat burning and able to basically, get people into the cellular state of fat burning, and then the body starts bouncing self out body starts detoxifying itself to hypothetical, which is the, the main hormone controller and the main thermostat of the body starts resetting itself. So when people are done, they're not going to put the weight back on because the thermostat is basically reset at a new number just like a house, thermostat you punch in seventy two say seventy two so that's what we were able to do. The problem is that the reason a lot of times people can't lose any weight is their thermostat is set to. Fifty and no matter what they do, they're going to stay to fifty so then we get them, their bodies balancing get him down to. Let's say to ten then reset the thermostat to ten you're gonna stay to ten and then we give everybody tools going forward as well. So if you're going to give you ten different ways to eat, if your wait, even pops up by two three pounds, we tell you how to what to eat that day drops the weight back down. So you should never really be above two, three pounds over your day, forty or day six year end of program. Wait. So. You know it's the system it's personalized in the beginning. It's personalized at the end at the end, we also use DNA tools. We do a DNA test. And so the DNA shows different eating types, exercise for each individual essential, the need for central vitamins and minerals different. Metabolic factors are assessed. So we're looking at over forty different genetic factors to help people not only help keep a lose the weight, but also how to keep it off going forward. So it's basically all encompassing from beginning to end. It's personalized to each individual because everybody's going to be a little different. You can't be one can't be one. One thing that fits everybody. So it's got to be a little bit different not one-size-fits-all. We're able to switch these things up and get the people. Get people working get their bodies work in the right way. And then when you lose the weight and bodies bouncing than health problems start to go away as well. So it's really it's all it's all about getting that weight off, it's all about getting healthier.
