Is Zach Snyder's 'Justice League' a Good Movie?

"The very controversial for so many reasons for content reasons for formatting reasons i saw so many memes about the fact that it was reformatted. Four three zack zack. Snyder's justice league has officially dropped. We say dropped on the internet right. It's not like premiering a movie theater. It's just dropping on on. Streamers is fishy dropped on hbo. Max there's a complicated back story where zacks under had to leave mid production because of a family tragedy which is very sad judd app not try that patel just we took over just we apparently was a total asshole and there were all sorts of lawsuits. About what a dickey was and then you know. The film by many fans was not felt to reflects what zach snyder intended and there was long discussion of a zacks undercut image. Peo- max put in seventy million dollars to shoot a whole bunch more footage to make the zack snyder. Cut of justice league. Come out for years later. This is an interesting story because it is different. From a lot of directors cut stories. A lot of directors cut stories are ten years later. I'm grateful the studio give me access to the archive to rescan the negative and re-cut it is very rare in fact i can't think of an example where someone's like four years later. I got an extra seventy five million dollars to shoot additional footage to make an alternate movie like it is. Is there another example. That are missing where somebody got that. I don't know but what i do know. Is that in the history of film. There have been many many many directors cuts and extended editions and versions. That were revisited. We've talked about some of them here before. And most of our audience familiar with many of them It is not unheard of obviously for there to be something that prevents the original vision to be completed by the person who had it. And obviously there are many instances where somebody could go back and try and piece things together. Only orson welles. A number of times We even talked to. I talked to walter merch about going back in and recruiting and working on touch of evil. There are the magnificent emerson's with him as well. I think he's one of the early versions. Were early famous versions but bladerunner famously for anybody mir charles age And so much inbetween. It's such a common story but this one does stand apart because yeah he was given basically a massive feature film budget to make more of it his version of it and it is an interesting thing like will this happen more often. Will we get criminal. And saying actually i want to shoot a whole different ending too dark dark knight rises fifteen years later. Because i've rethought it. And i wanna go into a very complicated sort of relationship between the artists and the work when you remove the theatrical premiere and when you open up the idea of shooting original additional footage it is a it's vastly different so Full disclosure wasn't able to finish it have a two year olds. Get very sleepy very easily. Don't have four hours with two year. Old where i can watch the whole thing but universally in my social media of the people in my life everyone i know seems to have really enjoyed the new cup more than the last cut. I do not understand why people hate on sex neither so much. I genuinely enjoyed his dawn of the dead. I thought it was solid. I also am a like. I wanted to get into movies. Originally to make watchmen. When i was nice school. I don't hate his watchman. Cut like everyone else does. I don't understand whether so mad about it. I think people to hate sex. Neither for some reason that does not make sense to me. I'll also disclosed and then michelle. I know michelle is actually watched both right but so i have watched the new one. I watched the snyder cut. I did it. I made it through. Well di i not a big comic book movie fan. In general i have seen many of them though. And i did not see the original justice league so i had to do some research on what changed which was really interesting to me. I also actually really think highly of him from a visual standpoint. I find that even when he's not like a lot of the movies directed this one included. The material is just not great in my opinion but he's visually so committed to the bit that he does that his sequences really worked for me. And i think he's a great comic book movie director choice. Because i think he's really. His camera is like ballot. Check i think his action sequences are visually compelling. And i think his approach like to me the thing that felt the weakest about this. I mean obviously the some some major casting problems major script problems but all that aside i think it it mimicked. Some of what marvel does too much sometimes which i don't really like. They're some straight up. Like this is just an avenger. Seen but not as good. And i don't really love what it was in the first place personally but all my my personal take aside. I think filmmakers He is just he really doesn't. He's earnest he's not tongue in cheek and sometimes it gets a little silly and you might laugh. But i think his earnest approach to how dramatic he is with his camera like from dawn of the dead to the three hundred to a and tackling real quick charles before michelle I think that warner brothers is known to have some really tight released times. They don't have the same war chest that disney does for like they. They set these release dates. They they have to make them. I'm not going to get into the wise. And if sets really true but and that puts a lot of pressure on finishing something and delivering something. And i think that some of the the flaws in some of these dc comic book movies have to do with some of that some of us so anyway onto you. Michelle i f Well done on watching. The center is a endeavor. I i think i knew what the runtime was. But it doesn't click in my head until i was watching and the timeline at the bottom. It has like how long you've watched. And i miss read it. I thought it was much like when it said two and a half hours at the bottom. I thought that was a total Not they meant time that i had laughed and that was quite a surprise. So it's long. Don't don't kid yourself jack. Knifed mini series has parts could have been released in parts. My first input. If you will is i feel like i. Keep reading the quote snyder cut. That snyder wouldn't release in two thousand seventeen and i would argue that. I don't know this is i. Don't think this is at all what would have been released for so many reasons. It's a it's a post weeden post tragedy post. Hbo max snyder display. I don't think we would be able to release a for. I could be wrong. A four hour epic in a theater in twenty seventeen. I don't obviously say that. There are many teaser. There are changes are subtle there. Some people have pointed them out and in terms of very subtle and different. Like stolen changes. That i think are in there now. For example there's a billboard others billboard in the city at some point in the messages you're not alone and a lot of people have guessed that something that snyder put in in reference to his daughter. Like these little things that have been put in log away 'cause post years of reflection on it and i just don't think not content aside just the run time. I'm not sure how many people really yes for hours within a theatre. Let's do it. I don't know if we the same. i do. Think a really interesting experiment if anyone ever wants to ever play with this idea of same footage different story concept of how to edit something together. Because i started watching the josh sweden version the same evening. Don't do this same evening through off after watching case for a minute i thought you were. You said you meant side by side like you had to i. Four by three setup does allow you. I will say to have it on the side of my screen. As i was like doing some work so i will say the former three at least helpful in the arrangements of your browser window because like i'm not cutting anything off because it's not a letterbox or other format so the four by three is is is makes it easier to have the size. No i tried watching the conversion right. After some of the scenes giving away some of the scenes that feel pivotal in the story. Line are like thrown in the credits. The opening like oh i get with. This is going to do you. I don't know if i can sit through

A Look Inside The World's Biggest Vaccine Maker

"So rosa palm trees here green lawns. A little bit like a college campus riding in a golf cart up to the factory. Your some of these are the migos month. Rubella reviews vaccine serum institute of india was already the world's biggest vaccine manufacturer even before this pandemic the company says two thirds of all children in the world. Get its vaccines and most of them are made here. At a sprawling factory complex in western india inside conveyor belts with all these tiny little vial weasing going for automatic resilience section automatic. Visual inspection is inspecting me europe machine. It's a high tech operation but look outside the factory window and you see a reminder of this companies more humble roots horses in the nineteen sixties. This was a farm breeding race horses and one day. One of the horses got bitten by a snake. Suresh giada serums executive director. Explains what happened next. Bimbos do the lanes. Were not working great in india so he could not get their disney. We could not get anti snake venom serum in time the horse died but it's owner had an idea you said yesterday why not start making it ourselves. So the serum institute of india was born. It began making serums against tetanus and snake venom and leader added vaccines against all sorts of childhood diseases. They specialize in generic versions at low profit margins and export to one hundred and seventy different countries last spring. A tiny package arrived here by career from oxford university in england to the very small. While is one in chief scientist. Shali graham describes what was inside components of a viral vector vaccine against the corona virus serum scrambled to start mass producing them immediately in huge floor to ceiling stainless steel vats of the one. Embryonic human embryonic kidney selling yeah scientists petty ready recalls how he was developing other vaccines these fats when his supervisor told him to quickly convert everything over to the corona virus vaccine while under lockdown as the pandemic exploded it was difficult to follow very strict rules of solution during this People to do overtime. This was before. Clinical trials showed that the oxford astrazeneca vaccine would work. It was a gamble with so much at stake. He says everybody's waiting for the all mankind waiting. The whole world is waiting for it to this winter. When trials finally proved this vaccine did indeed work is celebrated internally. Not like party or something but we had that moment of joy gonna champagne. No no serum hopes to soon be churning out a hundred million doses per month of this one vaccine on top of all the other vaccines they're still producing here. The oxford astra zeneca. Formula is particularly attractive to india and other low and middle income countries. Because it needs just regular refrigeration not subzero temperatures. This is for storage area. The capacity of seventy million dollars. So what we're looking at here is enough to vaccinate. Whole countries is ongoing process of building out of cold storage along these conveyor belts and out to sixty eight country so far racing against russia china. In what some are calling vaccine. Diplomacy india's huge capacity is attracted interest from the so called quad. The us japan. Australia and india. They announced financing to help another indian producer make a billion more doses of another co vaccine but while indian manufacturers are partnering with global pharmaceutical companies. The indian government is challenging pam at the world trade organization. There is an agreement that binds all wto members to certain levels of protection for intellectual property. Twenty year patents. Regional thrashers legal scholar at the global development policy center in boston. She explains how india and south africa are asking the wto to suspend those patents. Cova vaccines so that companies like serum can crank out generic versions quickly and in certain countries the majority of the population won't be vaccinated for something like five years that gives those viruses a long time to mutate. So the argument they're making is not. Hey look out for us but more this is in the interest of all of us. Everyone serums executive director. John says he supports that effort at the wto watery required is a vaccine today. Not tomorrow you want to stop the disease and stop it sprayed and that can happen. Only if there is no restriction on using technology many global health experts agree. The pope has said he does too but some companies including astrazeneca have pledged to sell vaccines at cost without profit and suspending. their patents. They say is not the answer it would kill innovation and would not speed up distribution bottlenecks more to do with supply chains than access to the vaccine technology itself. Both sides of this debate are over emphasizing. The role of patents. Daniel hamill is a law professor at the university of chicago. He says the serum institute success chose a middle path. It got a license from astrazeneca. It's been able to mass produce vaccines within the current regulatory environment ensures the potential licensing arrangements without cancelling patents ceremonies if you're disabled to gain rights to make vaccines on a large scale.

A JPEG Sells for $70 Million, Creating a New Era of Digital Art Auctions

"From wondering. I'm david brown in this business. Wars daily on this tuesday march twenty third. If you're an art collector with a spare seventy million lying around a rembrandt says on may be out of your reach. But you just might be able to score yourself. A lesser van gogh picasso or like someone last week. You own your own people digital montage. Oh you've never heard of people that's okay. He's not one of those guys. They teach art history class. Which makes it all the more remarkable one of his electronic art pieces just sold at auction at christie's for nearly seventy million dollars even though it only exists in pixels is the third highest price ever commanded by a living artist. According to the new york times people is a digital artist from south carolina. Whose given name. Is mike thirteen years. He's created a drawing every day. He started with pen and paper but now creates art. Digitally the record breaking piece titled everyday's the five thousand days is a composite of the first five thousand days of that project. This was also the first time christie's sold a piece of digital only artwork. It was purchased with the cryptocurrency ether. Another first for christie's something tells me you won't be the last either. So you're probably wondering why in the world someone would pay seventy million dollars for a pack a reproducible. Virtual file right. Something you can't touch or even hang on your wall. yeah. I know. That's what i was wondering. Turns out every day is is in just another pretty j. peg. It's what's called a non fungible token or nfc and if you're thinking is so tell me why that matters. Well you're going to need to stick with me for a moment. On this one in tease us blockchain technology for authentication. Now this blockchain is the same sort of thing that you find in bitcoin right. It captures information and shares it with a network of computers and once shared. There's a digital ledger. That records the data across thousands of computers. Making it impossible to manipulate or so goes the theory. So when you buy an nf it's quote minted to you. Meaning an ownership record is created across thousands of computers around the world. You own the original one of a kind file. I know it may seem complicated on the surface but it really is pretty straightforward essentially techie. Way of making a digital file one of a kind like a physical object even if others tried to make a copy. It's taking a photo of a famous painting. It's not worth what the original is worth. Entities allow users to own bits of video songs or images. Their popularity actually began years ago with a game. Called crypto kitties where people could buy in trade animated cats after attracting top venture. Capital firm says investors some crypto. Kitty sold well into the six figures. Lately they've turned into a blazing hot sector in art and collectibles. Sports stars like lebron. James and rob gronkowski have even gotten in on the action selling. Nfc video clips. In digital trading cards people has been at the forefront of this craze in february a short video clip he created sold for nearly seven million dollars in one weekend in december he made more than three million dollars selling his t's bad for a guy who calls some of his own work crap according to the times not to be outdone.

Why Square Stock Dropped Today

"Came in solidly higher-than-expected shares of square though are down seven percent this morning. Because growth is slowing. There's always a lot to get to with square so when you look at all the numbers. Tell me what stood out to you. Yes for me. I really focused. When i swear on really their burgeoning business which you know is the cash shop. It's funny you mentioned the war on cash and they have this kind of conveniently named cash app so it was really some of the numbers that the shop drew in the quarter and for that matter the fiscal year one of them is one hundred sixty two percent. Increase your ear. Gross profit of the cash up In a lot of that is being fueled by new users and specifically cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. So i think one number is not in throughout the entire twenty twenty fiscal year over three million people transacted bitcoin in some regard which was a two hundred fifty percent increase in volume compared to fiscal year. Nineteen and then they also even gave some gave some information on january twenty twenty one st year with over one million new buyers of bitcoin so really just interesting kind of figures throughout the entire report. Kind of the bitcoin. Being such an important part of that cash app is what really stood out to me. Yeah and that was certainly part of the headline squares square announcing it had purchased one hundred seventy million dollars worth of bitcoin during the quarter so cash app is squares version of ven. Mo- it's interesting to see the reaction from the start because on the one hand. This is a stock. Even factoring in the drop today. The stock is up almost two hundred percent in the past year so i understand particularly traders on wall street with a shorter term mentality saying alright. It's been a good year. Let's let's take a little money off the table. That sort of thing on the other hand. I don't know the overall market cap of square is just over one hundred billion dollars. It seems like a business with a lot of room to run. And i was listening to some of the comments the. Cfo made around what they are. Seeing it square in terms of how sticky the cash app is in terms of the other parts of squares business. How it's this thing that sort of bringing people in and once they're in the square ecosystem. They they start trying other parts of the business. So i don't know like would you look i get the. Pe ratio is somewhere north of five hundred. But when you when you look at everything that square has going on do you look at today as a buying opportunity for people who maybe had square on their watchlist and thought well okay. It's it's seven percent cheaper than it was yesterday. Yeah actually i was looking at. You know over the last couple of weeks how it's performed and through last week year to date. I think it was up. Something like twenty seven percent and then you have over the last couple of days. You know ten percent or so pullback and these are always the days as as a long term investor that i look for you know have a business. That's in my opinion burgeoning. Having fiscal year revenue grow over one hundred percent granted excluding bitcoin. That's only about fifteen or twenty percent but as long term investor. I do think this is an opportunity. I'm not personally a shareholder of square. But it's a fascinating business to me and we've seen so much traction and really their largest growing business in terms of bitcoin transaction cryptocurrency and things like that which really doesn't seem to be dying the craze three or four years ago now. And you know it's all of a sudden habit a two year hiatus and it's got right back in the thick of things you know which squares really benefiting from. So you know. I think if you're a long term investor willing to hold for a couple of years and not too worried about a lot of volatility which has realizing probably will continue to experience over the coming months over coming quarters over the coming years I think this is an opportunity to dip your feet in or maybe increase your position a little bit lows.

Jack Dorsey's Square has reportedly expressed interest in buying Jay-Z's music streaming platform, Tidal

"We're gonna talk financials. And i'm going to go broad in a minute but first i wanted to get your thoughts on this story involving square which are reports. The jack dorsey is interested in buying title. Which is a music music streaming service. I never heard of before today. Look jack dorsey has said in the past. He's interested in building on the square platform to offer other services. Music streaming doesn't strike me as an obvious natural fit. But what was your reaction when you saw this story. I mean my initial reaction is probably right on right on par with yours there. It doesn't seem like the doesn't seem like the first place. I would go if we're looking to build out this this square commerce ecosystem. I appreciate what he's saying what he's thinking about wanting to do longer term with with the business and with with the platform with with what square offers and i think a lot of this kind of around the cash maybe but yeah i mean it title is is. I've heard that before never subscribed to it just as a music streaming service. They it was built on the idea that high fidelity sound in artists owning the music would perhaps be a differentiator and maybe a time ago that was at least the high fidelity but not anymore. I mean you're seeing companies from amazon and spotify to apple all investing in that same level of level of delivery there so You know there's anything with title that makes me think. Oh wow that's some big differentiator that makes me wanna consider dropping my spotify subscription. Because they don't have even anywhere close to the catalog spotify as or apple for that matter. In when you look at the actual business i mean they. They don't have anywhere near the subscribers. Man i think that number around two thousand and sixteen title reported somewhere in the neighborhood of three million subscribers which is just a fraction just as a just a fraction of what you'd find on spotify and apple and really that is one of the biggest advantages with with that line of work and music streaming as the size of your customer base But i mean the economics of music streaming are still very difficult so to me this. This reminded me a lot of mean a little while back if you recall twitter in this matters because jack dorsey is also the ceo twitter and understand the two very different businesses but same leader Twitter invested soundcloud. And they were actually kicking around acquiring soundcloud at one point and they decided not to do that instead through their twitter ventures They made i think. Seventy million dollar investment in soundcloud which quickly evaporated two zero. They pretty much and they just wrote the whole thing off because it was just nothing you could really do with that and in regard to square. I mean you remember. They had the caviar side of business a little. While back in food delivery they decided to go ahead and sell that to door dash in order to focus more on investing in its core payments business and at the time that made a lot of sense and that actually is a pretty good investment foursquare given that. They bought caviar for just under fifty million dollars and sold at the door dash for just a little over four hundred million so so that worked at. I agreed selling caviar just made sense. It wasn't something that really lined up with the rest of squares business at the time and there were clearly companies out there. That are doing it better. This kind of seems the same thing to me. It just doesn't really line up with squares. Business companies out there. That are doing it way. Better die worse is a thing. You gotta be really careful. It's gonna be interesting to see if they proceed with this because there's a price at which it's worth. The risk square is a one hundred billion dollar company. They have access to all kinds of capital. I don't a particular price in mind but there is probably less than five hundred million probably a good place to start. I mean there's there's a price at which dorsey overpays and it spooks investors and there's a price at which is a reasonable amount of money and if it pays off great and if not well we write it down. Yeah i the biggest risk here is. It's not a financial one. I don't think i mean to me. I would imagine this has to be far far under five hundred million. I think if i recall correctly. Jay z bought title at some point for fifty six million dollars in five years. So i mean it would be very hard pressed to argue that they've been witnessing some just exponential growth that would just pump that valuation up to new heights today. Give an even even with everything we've seen in the market where it seems like the more. The more money company loses the higher. The market wants to bid up at stock price. I don't know that would necessarily be the same case with title at imagine. The the biggest risk is not a financial one squares. Got the balance sheet. Pretty much do whatever they want. They can certainly afford it to me. It's really more about taking your eye off the ball and making bad investments.

Driscolls Will Grow Strawberries Vertically, Year-Round

"Wonder I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Thursday October fifteenth. What's on your plate for lunch today a salad some fruit. Since, the pandemic began many of us are eating healthier or at least trying to and all those additional leafy Greens and Berries on your plate have to come from somewhere preferably somewhere that reduces long distance food miles and maybe improves the taste over those deadly dull hothouse tomatoes. Our Appetite for fresh produce is fueling big growth in hot new industry vertical farming. On Monday, Driscoll's America's biggest strawberry provider said, it will start growing some of it strawberries in an indoor vertical farm that farm is run by San. Francisco AG Tech. Company. Plenty. Unlimited. Driscoll's new huge greenhouse will be in Laramie Wyoming hardly the nation's strawberry capital anticipating consumers possible objections driscoll says strawberries grown vertically without dirt or fresh air or just as tasty. Perhaps tastier than those grown on its California farms founded in twenty fourteen plenty unlimited began growing mountains of leafy Greens in a San Francisco vertical greenhouse last year. It now supplies leafy Greens to hundreds of Safeway, and Albertson's grocery stores in California. If you were to walk into its High Tech Greenhouse, you'd look up and up and up at endless walls of Kale a regular lettuce in Missoula. Mix. The company is green in more ways than one. They say, they use no GMO's and no pesticides because they don't spray for bugs plenty makes the startling claim that you don't even need to wash their produce and like other vertical farms plenty claims to use a tiny fraction of and water compared to traditional farming about one percent of land in less than five percent of water. Most vertical farms launched with Greens which grow well hydroponically and aeroponics not to mention they take less space than say tomatoes and strawberries. Moreover, local Greens are popular. They're also delicate which makes them great candidates for one of the purported benefits offered by tech indoor farms. That is if you can use controlled indoor conditions including led lights, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and recycled water to grow food on a large scale, you can put these greenhouses anywhere whether it be damned, and if you can grow strawberries in frozen Laramie Wyoming year round, you can shrink food miles the average. Plate of food travels fifteen hundred miles before it winds up on our table shrinking those food miles is good for the environment. It's also good for most produce great for grains. But now that vertical Greens have been proven, it's time to expand into other fruits and vegetables which brings us back to driscoll's the strawberry giant. It supplies a third of all strawberries in America and it's making a big investment in plenty. The Financial Times reports that high profile deal is only one of a flurry of investments signaling the news that high tech indoor farming is here to stay. Recently revel Greens. Minnesota startup raised almost seventy million dollars growing. It's total investment to two hundred million dollars using rainwater and snow. Melt. Company grows lettuce in mammoth greenhouses in California Texas and of course, it home in Minnesota with its new money rebel Greens plans to expand its Texas footprint according to the Star Tribune newspaper.

Sudan floods: UN calls for urgent funding,asfood insecuritymounts

"While Sudan has been hit by devastating floods the worst seen in decades impacting more than six hundred, thousand people across seventeen of the country's eighteen states with homes destroyed and farmland damage. Just ahead of the harvest season, he's been another shock amid multiple crises according to the Food and Agriculture Organization FAO urgent funding is needed to support a country already facing alarmingly high rates of hunger and food insecurity. Dominique Bergin FAO's director of emergency resilience has just returned from a mission to sedan. He told Charlotte Lomas how dire the situation really is for people there. They're just returned from Sudan couple of days ago where I wasn't a mission already to the floods which have been affecting the countries over the last couple of these floods are truly devastating down the largest thinking the country in over seventy years who have conducted happy assessments with the me of coacher and found that up to six hundred thousand households have been affected by the impact. Of the floods more than two point, two million actors have been damaged. So it's quite serious but the problem here is that this comes at the top of an already difficult situation for millions of paper as a matter of fact, before these, let's nine point six million people were already in acute food insecurity ready a very difficult situation related to a variety of of issues social economic crying he's covid crises and even know in some part of the country the issues already locust. So quite serious situation that therefore Esguerra, our full attention. You travel to two of the affected sites what were your impressions? So we went to two of the most affected states we undertook mission with government officials as a matter of. Factly culture was with us and we spend today's in blue, Nile State, and in Sennar state, and they're what we could see is the variety of the damaged. We saw the impact on commercial farmers, and with few damage, they will be very little employment opportunities for the people. So one of the things we saw. We saw. Livestock owners, Pasta list being severely affected. By doing of the floods having lost for some of them up to seventy five percent of their livestock, which in turn is a problem for them because this is their main source of livelihood we saw that forty two percent of those affected by by the floods are women and it all sorts. So we went to the field we we spend time with them, and what we saw is that I mean situation is very, very severe. This time of the year they should have sorghum that is one meter and a half I ready to our best. Instead, we could see field full of. wheats with sorghum and that will not be honest. So in talking to these women, we understand they're already struggling. They're adopting what we call negative coping strategies, which means that they are cutting the number of the means to quantity of them is and what we found is that at this point of the ready, they're only having one meal per day and very basic meal. So very T- tuition and therefore these people need our assistance. How will this floods affect food security across the country? The food security situation prior to the floods was already severe nine point six, million people in acute insecurity. Two point two million people in emergency face. When we visited the blue states, what was clear is that we were in a state where twenty seven percent of the population prior to the plots was already in acute with with insecurity. So it is clear that with the impact of the ways, the fact that people not be able to harvest with the fact that they have been losing animals with the fact that prices are extremely volatile and ever tendency to increase significantly. The estimate is that the food security situation will further. And therefore, we need to be ready to provide at scale. Livelihood Saving Assistance. In collaboration, of course, we other agencies what is doing to assist Sadan since the beginning of the year I feel despite the covid situation has been able to provide assistance who about nine, hundred, twenty, thousand people, which is quite significant in this context. Now, what we are doing is that we are appealing for additional resources innovation essentially to the floods, but the flood. Being one more driver of accurate with insecurity. So, what we are doing is essentially appealing for seventy million dollars additional. To basically cover the needs of the people for the coming season in terms of cash assistance for people to meet the most immediate needs press agricultural inputs for the coming season so that immediately they can go back to their productivity. Always bearing in nine FAO wide providing humanitarian livelihood saving activities is very keen to build the zillions of populations which as we know are essential when people face regular shocks.

Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak

"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time

So should we explain why we're? We're driving through sunset radio. There's a bunch of billboards here, right? That's what we're. Getting at. Less Ronnie our producers, etc piled, a newborn, took a drive down Hollywood's main drag. It's a traffic jam packed with billboards promoting new TV shows and movies. I've been covering the business of media for a long time, so I served as tour guide for this trip, but Ronnie is a data reporter who mainly writes about tech companies. She doesn't typically pay a lot of attention to what's going on in Hollywood. Here, we have a a the crown net flicks up on the right. Have you watched any of the crown yet? I have not.

Someone like hermetically sealed raising. A drive down, sunset isn't just a chance for Ronnie to see what's coming on. TV, it's a way to watch Hollywood talking to itself, these billboards are messages which are very much directed at Hollywood except now. netflix's doing most of the talking. Stranger things net flix. The politician. Net flicks, one billboard tuna flexible work three Netflix. Netflix well years ago when Netflix was first getting into its own programming. Executive there told me that because they were tech company. They didn't have to do things that traditional media companies do like renting billboards, so it could show big-name talented netflix serious about Hollywood. That guy turns out was wrong. Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix. Even though that time was just a few years ago. If you didn't know any better, you'd think. Netflix's has always been a huge part of Hollywood. Syphilis can be fatal to your baby free.

You're like one of the big one of those big new media disruptors. Why did the entertainment industry need to be disrupted? Just for the fun of it. On this happened really quickly. We talked to Kim Masters veteran show business journalist at the Hollywood reporter who said that a decade ago Netflix's was an afterthought for big media companies newcomers from Silicon Valley or anywhere else did not strike fear in the hearts of moguls. There's a thing that happens in Hollywood. Which is the outsiders come in, and they think boy. There's a lot of stupid rules in Hollywood and people sure do dumb stuff, but we're going to be much smarter than these idiots, and then they get kilt. It turns out that Netflix was the exception to the rule. It didn't get killed at one. And NETFLIX's did it with Hollywood's help. You can trace all this back to two thousand eight, which is when Netflix's really broken into streaming by getting his hands on a bunch of blockbuster movies for a bargain, Ben, price, it had made a deal with stars premium cable channel. Let netflix's stream always rate movies from Sony and Disney so stars had created the service called Vong which nobody listening to this podcast is GonNa Remember, but there was a service before Netflix's.

Leaving the World Health Organization

"This is Dr Michael Wilks with. The pinion over the past few years. Our President has made some incredibly ill informed policy decisions even in the face of clear evidence to the contrary, these decisions have negatively impacted people's lives through policies around covid climate change, immigration health care women's rights, lgbt rights education, and of course, our relationship with foreign countries, but the president's recent decision to leave the sixty year. Old World Health Organization is among the very most irresponsible decision will. Will hurt the US every bit as much as it will hurt the rest of the world the W. H.. O. Is not a perfect organization. It is plagued by politics and infighting and a low budget, but it's still serves a super important function. The whol plays a key role in many decisions that directly or indirectly affect our lives more than ever before our global interconnected world create great risks particularly with regard to the spreading. Spreading of diseases, it is the WHO that is. Our First Line of defense the WHO. I alerted the world to the infection that came to be called covid in early January, and it advised healthcare workers how to protect themselves from the spread. Perhaps it could have been more aggressive with its policies, but if there is a problem, conduct an audit help improve the organization. Don't be a baby and take your toys and walk away. Away and it's not just covid were who plays a vital role. It coordinates the global response to diseases like polio Ebola Malaria HIV TB and yellow fever. The near nation of diseases like polio has saved the US tens of billions of dollars in treatment costs, and the WHO isn't the only Health Organization the US refuses to work with as the US decided to focus inwardly. We have already stopped funding the pan. American Health Organization. Pan. America is the area that is currently home to half of the top ten countries with co Vid. Now aside from helping ourselves, we also have a social responsibility to help resource poor countries by helping to provide education laboratory training tools like p. p. e. and clinical trials drugs to treat emerging and reemerging diseases. When we step back from these responsibilities, China steps in, and they're now in our backyard, working with countries that will old them a big favor. The WHO also directly benefits the US for example each year influenza virus mutates resulting in new variants around the world. It is the W. H. O. that leads the. The flu vaccine development process each year which includes several American researchers and organizations like our FDA and CDC. The US depends on data from the WHO to predict which strain of the flu will spread to the US so that we can make ineffective vaccination in the end the total US funding for the WHO is equivalent to the overhead of about one ass hospital about three hundred seventy million dollars. It would be very hard to get better value for that

Whale Protections Need Not Cause Lobstering Losses

"There's a lot of cash crawling on the sea floor. American lobsters, bringing more money than any other US Fisher, a record, six hundred and seventy million dollars in two, thousand, sixteen, mostly through Maine Massachusetts. The fishery relies on traditional lobster harvest techniques. A series of traps is drops to the ocean floor with a long rope attached to a floating buoy during peak fishing season. There's over nine hundred thousand vertical lines right in the middle of right whale habitat graduate student, Hannah Myers. Myers from the University of Alaska Fairbanks College of fisheries and ocean sciences, those vertical lines entangle and kill endangered sea turtles and multiple whale species, including the North Atlantic right whales, only about four hundred individuals remain, and recent analyses show that the species won't survive if humans kill an average of one whale each year, some estimates indicate that lobster in gear kills more than three whales each year on average management problems. Problems surrounding the north? Atlantic right whale and entanglements are pretty significant and have been really challenging to move forward, and a large part of that is due to expected negative economic impact in the lobster fishery, but right we'll protections don't have to mean lobster losses, Canada's lobster harvest operates with fewer traps and a shorter six-month-long season. The US lobster fishery in Maine expense, approximately seven and a half times as much as. As, the Canadian fishery to catch the same amount, and Canadians are catching almost four times more lobster protract. They're putting less effort into it and spending less on fuel and equipment, but they're still gathering nearly the same amount of lobster overall, and there are stateside examples in Massachusetts areas that have had a seasonal closure. In recent years have reached a record high landings. The study was published in the Journal. Marine policy. Restrictions could actually mean a healthier lobster population overall it paradoxical, but it is consistent with a lot of fisheries research that shows that when you fish with too much effort and too many traps in the water. The stock itself isn't as robust so one thing we might expected that you would either have you know more or larger lobsters if there if fewer. Fewer traps into water, coming into each trap, and therefore able to haul up more lobster trap, and that's kind of what we see on the Canadian side, taking some of those ropes out of the water could benefit both the whales and the Fisher. Our main takeaways that a negative economic impact should not be assumed with effort reduction in the US fishery.

They're going to meet with Durant. What are they gonna do you know in case they get? Yes, but also with those two guys in particular their free agency. We can't only say they're picking a team where they can. Win. Because these are the guys that drive winning number one. And number two, if Katie was only picking a team to win. His stay goes steak. And of course he's still. All right. We'll take a quick break here.

"You know, this is why he got the seventy million dollars stanchion because he was playing so well really seem like he was unleashed in this booth knows or offense plane. With more pace, I even I when they signed him that extension, I thought it was good deal. I thought he had kind of come into his own. And I just think you know, this is something resilin, I talked about last June and something a good thing for us to remember when we're betting stuff next year. There such a dramatic difference now between the regular season. The play-offs said it just is seems to be a chasm that's growing each year. And you almost have to go into these playoffs try to unlearn just about. Everything you learn from the regular season. I think one of the things that has held up. Is this bucks team is just really good? And even when they don't play well they can still hang around these games. I didn't think they played one game one. They're put together one quarter. They won then today. Nobody played well the bucks who played well and they and they get double overtime Toronto. So, you know, I think I think you can look at stuff like if team is up fifteen twenty a lot during the season. I think that means something. But man went when it slows down, like it did today, how Toronto running pick rose vanfleet the right? I know I just think collide just got a little too cool for school. Right. In those carnival rooms that dealt with. Hey, so don't don't do any favors taking the clock down of the game clock four before you making a move. You know, it's going to be a terrible shot. And maybe it's shot that doesn't go in like last Sunday. But so what do you think happens? So we we got game foreign Toronto. We just put double-o T miles on walkie. I, we should mention I thought they were some really shaky 'cause in this game, most of them went against Milwaukee the the weirdest one they didn't even replay it. I think it was in Z there at the end of rig in the last minute regulation, though. Asman OT, Janas got his fifth FAO quiet. Just made a shot then he came down. And he missed another shot. And they called Jaanus for like a foul off the ball like the fight for the rebound. And I, I was rewinding it trying to find what the foul is Scott foster, just immediately was like, I'm calling this was super fishy, and so that happened. That was the fifth foul and then the. Thou- was Siachen just put his head down and just rammed into him. And, and they, they've found him out on that which brings me to my point. It reminds me of shack back way back when where you kind of call a lot of fouls or call. No foul on Janas in the game on both ends. You know, when he goes to the basket, you could it seems like he's fouled almost every time, and they call it, you know, when it whatever they want, and then defensively, he's challenging everything. He's all over the place. He's usually doing the right things and they can decide on that. All right. Well he went over the back on that one next time. No, he didn't go over the back that time and it I ki- they're very few guys in the league that, that can be kind of interpreted. And that's what I notice today, especially with those last two fouls. I just felt like they were bad calls. But that's what happens with the s probably I watched a little money in the Bank, and it was, you know what the referee was more consistent in that I think. Even ladies matches..

"So this week Purdue pharmaceuticals and its owners, the Sackler family settled a case that the state of Oklahoma had brought against them for two hundred seventy million dollars pretty large sum of money, but kind of a drop in the bucket for this company because they're insanely profitable. The reason why Oklahoma head, you know, made a case against them was because there is evidence that this company in this family had a pretty vital role in the overdose epidemic in America. There is documentation that the company deliberately misled people about how addictive their drugs, including Oxycontin were. In order to make more money. So it's pretty despicable. So that influence doctors to over prescribe opiates, and it also, you know, the sort of pushed this message that they weren't as addictive or dangerous as they were. And all of this fueled a massive wave of addiction in America that has killed hundreds of thousands of people when you talk about misleading about how addictive overhaul long of a period of time. Are we talking about? I have to look at the documentation. But it was for it was like when the drug was introduced until recently they eventually made. The medications tamper proof in response to criticism that they are like too easy to be abused. But they pushed the line that it was pretty safe. And you know, doctors should just be prescribing these these medications they took a a letter to the editor from a medical journal, and sort of us that even though it was later re like debunked. They use that as evidence that they claimed that it wasn't addictive. It was a whole like they clearly knew what they were doing. Which is why holding this company in this family accountable mean so much to so many people I was talking to some friends about this. We were saying like one of the defining things about being a millennial one of the actual ones and of being of the younger generation is that you probably know someone who died of. Overdose. So seeing this family. I don't know when I saw that this settlement had happened. I felt angry that they were able to throw money at this problem. But this is just the beginning. Like, there are thirty five other state cases that are still remaining. And then there are federal cases that are combining sixteen hundred other suits against them. So this might be the beginning of like, basically, a financial blood-letting for this company because how much money I mean, I don't know what to two hundred seventy million times like all that is. I don't know how much money exactly they have. They might end up being in a situation where to not have all of this evidence presented against them publicly. They end up bankrupting themselves. I don't I don't know the financials. But I don't know. I feel I still wish it had gone to trial. Even though the like this two hundred seventy million is being used. Set up like a center to study addiction. They're gonna be good things that come from this settlement. But I feel like they only settled because they knew they were going to lose. And so it's kind of frustrating to see. Them not be able to to lose it. It's it is weird to me hearing so frequently from politicians, for instance, about the opioid crisis and it nonetheless feeling like a very low energy diffused political priority. And they don't really understand. Why that is because it's not like it's a public health in commercial crisis that there is some grand partisan disagreement over right? Yeah. And so you would think that the channels of accountability in case like this would be more clear than they are than they seem. But maybe I'm dislike misreading politics as a nomination for addressing urgent problems in America. I don't know. I think the fact that there are now so many lawsuits against this company is definitely a really good sign that the legal system is trying to hold the people who are actually. Responsible accountable instead of like the war on drugs on sense where they're focusing on low level. Dealers who are addicts themselves. Like, it is it is good..

"What seventy million dollars does. And that is dangerous. That means every liberal they can find anywhere in the state of Texas. They're all showing up now, Texas, they're still a lot more conservatives, but the danger is that that folks who are going to work going to church raising their kids who have good conservative values, but are not living and breathing politics. The danger is if too many of them stay home, we could lose the state of Texas, and it's why turnout turnout turnout. Let me urge every one of your viewers. That's in Texas number one come out and vote tomorrow. But number to bring your friends bring your family, bring your neighbors set a target of getting five other people to vote tomorrow because it really is. It's all about turnout, and if we know the crazy leftist showing up we gotta make sure the rest of us show up. So we don't see the country lurch in a very dangerous direction. You look at the money that spin. I mean, you look at the map in Texas is traditionally a very conservative state yet all this money coming in here. I someone say it's almost a badge of honor that their this, many, Democrats that can't stand you. They want you out so desperately out of the Senate, your voice to be silent to not be there defend people like Brent cavenaugh, which I think you did brilliantly. Thank you. Oh, you at this. Why do you think they came after you so hard? Well, several things number one as we talked about before the left is already in rage. They're filled with with hatred for the president there still in denial about the two thousand sixteen election there, frankly, angry at the American people for electing President Trump electing Republican majorities and that rage is manifest now. It's clear for national Democrats if they could defeat one Republican on the ballot in two thousand eighteen it'd be me they'd rather defeat President Trump, but he's not on the ballot. And an so nationally if you're a Hollywood liberal, if if you're in New York City, the Republican you most want to take out as me, and they're on and everything they got now. I I do take it as a badge of honor. Yeah. You know, the old line that if you're not if you're not taking any any gunfire you're not over the target. Listen, I had been proud every day in the Senate to stand up and fight for the people of Texas to fight for low taxes to fight for low regulation to fight for lots and lots of jobs to defend the constitution. Oh, you look at at at Justice. Neal Gorsuch Justice, Brent Cavanaugh. I was honored to lead the fight to confirm both of them and the hard left doesn't like that. They don't like conservatives that don't apologize that aren't mealy mouth to don't just curl up in a ball and say never mind, but actually come back at them and say, look your policies, don't work. Listen, Liberal, Democrats hate it when we point out that we've got right now. The lowest African American unemployment ever recorded liberal Democrat numbers with the lowest Hispanic unemployment ever recorded lowest Asian American unemployment ever recorded Liberal Democrats have no answer to that said to call you racist. That's exactly it. It look the the left tries to make the case to young people. Young people should be so excited. We have the lowest youth unemployment fifty two years. You wanna talk about bad for young people. The beta rock socialist agenda is bad for young people ObamaCare. Obamacare was a massive wealth transfer from young healthy people. Everyone else jacked up. The premiums of young people enormously, and yet the media is all invested in pulling the wool over people's eyes. Our job is to be happy warriors while the left is screaming and angry and bitter. We shouldn't respond in kind. We should be joyful warriors. Because we're speaking the truth. Let's talk about your relationship with Donald Trump. I think there's a lot of people thought that after the election. You guys would be enemies you'd be fighting in DC that's been completely the opposite. You guys talk often down you seem to like each other. You seem to work really well with one another. This election is very much about the agenda. The president's. Well, your champion of that. You guys are working hand in hand. Are you surprised how well you guys have worked together? You know? I'm not the President Trump, and I worked very closely together. And and there's a reason we got a job to do. The stakes are too high. Listen when the two thousand sixteen election happened I faced a choice. I mean, the twenty sixteen primary it was bare knuckle there were some hard shots thrown on every side. Some of that's the nature of politics. But my choice in November of two thousand sixteen. I could either say my feelings are hurt. And I'm gonna take my marbles and go home, I'm gonna go nurse grudge. Look, I think that would have been really selfish to do. I have a job to do which is to represent twenty eight million Texans. And if I had put my hurt feelings ahead of the interests of the people, I'm representing I think that would have been an irresponsible decisions. I made a very deliberate decision. I'm gonna work hand in hand with this president to deliver on our promises. I gotta say Ben two years ago. Nobody imagined we would achieve as many victories for the people of Texas as we've seen in the last two years an historic tax cut that is that is unleashed incredible economic growth four million new jobs, four million people off of food stamps. Rebuilding our military moving our embassy to Jerusalem in Israel, pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal. The victories had been big have been substantial, and I've been proud to work very very closely with the president in. In winning every one of those victory. All right.

"Times out. And then maybe I'll get right. And you you win your share is seventy million dollars. Do you go to work? Do you? Do you? Do you continue to work at that place?
