"If you sign this deal. I will give you back your ip certain dates. And i want to say it was twelve months or something like that So she got her ip back and then boom she is gone now. What i can't figure out is because i don't really like her or this. Show that much. I get the interest in it and i would certainly put a show like that on our network place for it. There is absolutely the place for it. I just don't think she's that great. There's a ton of funny chicks out there. I just don't think she's in. Her co hosts. That left was funny. Yes and she has her own show as well and that does it does. Pretty well on the charts but sixty million for four years Is crazy town to me when you're only doing one show a week. But that is. That is where we're headed with podcasts. Like the my god man and then dax. Shepard is gone as well. He signed exclusively with podcasts. Spotify as well. I heard that number was was very similar. It's the name. I i can't stress. How important a good name and branding is and the amount of girls on tender who put hashtag caller daddy plagues swarm show anymore. It's like it's a it's an idea. It's a so an event where it's like with us like ours our listeners. We call the newness like dude. Everybody knows each other. They text each other. It's a community thing with drinking brose. It's the same way. And i think that is important and you're speaking to your audience is when you deviate from that. That's where you end up with a shitty show so look i'm not knocking. Call her daddy or her fan base. They're amazing. I just can't believe she has sixty million dollars for spotify for one show week. That is a lot of money so you're gonna you're gonna see some ramifications from this. It's going to be on. I tunes going to start buying out people next. And we'll see where this all heads up. But it's it's exciting to see to say the least know. It elevates the elevates the medium like an getting that makes it at least makes people look at podcasts in a different way so we all benefit from a legitimacy to podcasts. Right well to me. That stigma was gone a long time ago. When when rogan signed on for one hundred twenty a year. I was just like well. That's out the window. That's what stern gets for sirius. Xm and it was like all right. Bill simmons his was three hundred million dollars for the ringer. Fucking gnarly for those podcasts. On you guys to listen to bill simmons by the way no.

Or is it crypto. Well it's worth sixty nine million. Whatever it is it is the. He's the third largest price paid for living artists. People is up there now with jeff collins and david. Hockney sixty nine nine to be fair. Nine point three million dollars went to christie's which immediately i'm sure turned the theory him into american cold hard cash sixty million of it was a bid by an anonymous bidder using a pseudonym although we think we now know who it is and i'll explain that in just a second sixty million dollars what did you get for the sixty million. Did you get something you can hang on your wall. No did you get did you get. What did you get you got. You didn't even get the j. peg. You can have the j. peggy at address which would give you this. J peg which by the way consists of five thousand images that people has taken he. Does it daily art image.

You can print it. Anybody can print up but you own it only you can own it. And that's a. That's a affirmed on the blockchain. Sixty million dollars. Now the guy who bought it uses the name medic cova. But amy caster who i. I don't know from adam but wrote in the blog and i convinced me. That in fact is a crypto entrepreneurs. Been on the scene. For about seven years named vig. Nash some dorasan and furthermore amy caster kind of explained for the first time to me. What's really going on here. So it wasn't Medico vans own ethereal that he spent in effect he created a another crypto bundle called b twenty bought the painting with that and is selling shares. Bits fractional portions of the people artwork to other people in other words. Step three prophet fifty nine. He owns fifty nine percent of be dot twenty. Motta's who else owns it. Be people owns a two percent stake so in effect people bought his own painting or part of his own painting. I'm not that there's any conflict of interest there or is there. But really i think if there is if in your mind there is some question and i'll ask you guys now to comment but if they're in your mind some question about what the hell is. How could how could jay peg be worth sixty nine point three million dollars. And why would somebody a medico van. Spend that kind of money on jay peg. It now becomes clear. He's gonna make money on it
Rise above the cloud: Amazon's new chief executive
"Thank you for standing by good day. Everyone and welcome to the amazon dot com hugh thousand and twenty financial results yesterday as it does. Every three months amazon held an earnings call it detailed a record quarter. The firm reported more than one hundred billion dollars in sales for the first time then came another disclosure today. We announced our founder and ceo. Jeff jesus will transition to the role of executive chair in the third quarter of this year. Jeff bezos at one time. The richest man in the world will step away from the helm of the company. He founded we'll mostly. I will reiterate that jeff is not leaving. He is getting a new job. He's going to be executive chair of board super important. Rolled order super. His successor will be andy jesse. A twenty year amazon veteran and head of amazon web services the company's enormous cloud computing arm since its founding. Mr bezos has insisted amazon continued to act like a feisty startup and he reiterated his catchphrase in a letter announcing the transition saying it remains day. One in fact it's day nine. Thousand seven hundred or so company has a goodly handful of challenges. That weren't around on day. One were the news. That jeff bezos is stepping back from day to day management. Amazon is a complete surprise. Patrick fouls the economists business affairs editor before the pandemic taken a backseat role. Then he returned to day to day management to deal with the huge surge in business the amazon sore during twenty twenty. He had two successes on the table. One of whom signaled he would leave the company so it was all set up for management transition but the exact timing of that wasn't clear until we've just had an how did amazon whether the the huge surge in business that the challenges that the twenty twenty brought well it's obviously been at the absolute halt of the digital surge. We've seen in the economy in two ways. First of all the e commerce machine. It runs both selling it so in product directly and doing logistics for other firms seen an enormous boom and business but also critically it's cloud thing business is behind a lot of the digital services we've been using from zoom to streaming services on the tv. So it's been absolutely central really to the economists response to the lockdown pandemic. He's about to say that. Mr basis is going out on a high note. I think he is in several ways. I mean you can judge by the financial performance of the company and its valuation which is close to an all time high. I think you can judge it by a also the social contribution. The foams made i mean. It's very controversial business. People were accused of being monopoly of exploiting workers and so on. But i think you can say that over the last year it's also showing that it's really an essential part of many people's lives and i'm sure. Jeff bezos will be thinking about last as he talks his departure but the say threats out there for amazon regulators. Continue to scrutinize it more than ever yesterday. The ftc one of these regulators reached a settlement with amazon for sixty million dollars. It'd been accused of believable more shortchanging drivers over tips and this continual pushback on labor regulation conditions of workers and there's also actually some nascent signs of competition from big firms like walmart which are finally getting their act together on digital. Well you mentioned that regulatory scrutiny which is also been directed at the likes of google and apple mr base is was one of the last founders to still be leading the tech giant he founded. I mean how significant is it to you that he's stepping aside here us right. The big five tech companies in america the have come to dominate its stock market and to some degree. Corners of its economy is now only one founder. Left in the hot seat mark zuckerberg and he's in a very hot seat indeed given facebook's problems so it does feel like it marks. Perhaps in you era when these huge companies have reached a point of dominance and yet some of the big questions that that has created remain unanswered will government. Break them up will. New competitors eventually arise and will be able to keep the same spirit of dynamism the propelled them to the success going for decades to come.
How streaming services and COVID-19 upended Hollywood
"Coronavirus is up ended. A lot of things about our lives but few industries has seen as drastic a change as the entertainment business with the ride streaming services and social begging the question. What happens the movie theaters a broader. Chang this is your daily charge joining us way to this. Transformation is our media expert johnson. Welcome john so let's start with a recap of the year. We saw the launch the number of streaming services peacock. Hbo max and then of course stalwarts like netflix. Continue to dominate. Pop culture with shows like tiger king in queen's gambit. How did the so-called street war shakeout in twenty twenty. We saw breakaway successes and truly epic failures over the course of the last year among all the new services that launched in the last fourteen months or so nothing compares to disney plus the subscribers that a service brings in that's the currency of success for streaming services. And no matter how you look at it. Disney plus blew away all other new competitors completely out of the water disney hoped to have between sixty million and ninety million subscribers within five years and it nearly hit the top of that. Its most obstacle optimistic expectation at nearly beat that within one year not five. It's at eighty six point eight million subscribers at the end of its first year and then on the flip side you had these failures quickly. Which entered twenty twenty swinging it was booking super bowl commercials. It was making it rain. All over hollywood paying stars tons of money to make these short form Cereal movies and chapters and Daily essentials and other things that if you could see me i'm making all these little air quotes but it totally flopped and it announced that it was completely shutting down just seven months after launching. So we've seen some really legendary story play out in the streaming world this year definitely and in between though we had a couple of those services. Hbo max peacock which all launched as well and lose a little bit quieter for them up until the end of the hbo. Max how did those two services fair out when they were they launched didn't do as well as disney plus but nothing has done is walls just pause. You really. nothing else compares to what they've been doing you know if if disney plus had it had the insane year that it did their launches would look you know pretty good all right. Hbo max is at you know. I have to check the numbers. But it's at i think. Eight point six million accounts and peacock has more than that because he got chasm free tier. Hbo max you have to pay fifteen dollars a month to access it or b a each b. o. l. subscriber That has a deal with. Hbo backs in order to get it. But the point is you know. They're doing fine sean. It's compared to a truly extraordinary. Unexpected success like disney plus that. It looks like they're really doing poorly and to be fair to you know. Hbo max with its high price. Point the fact that the fact that it was kind of a Confusing proposition two people and The fact that it wasn't on roku or fire tv the two most popular devices for months that also crimped it in particular its appeal. you know. They're like thirty some million people that can have. Hbo max basically for free because they are. They're already paying for hbo and of those were at or still at below ten million accounts. Right we are back so it's definitely struggled in some senses yet. It will disney plus held by a number of big cultural milestones the hamilton earlier this year. Of course mandalorian is back more baby love even new law which at that dollar premium charged pretty well. Hbo max is poised to have its potential big moment tomorrow with the release of what am nine hundred eighty four. I'm curious what you think. The impact is there and as we sort of look for. You know how that's going to help set the way movies are released. Well it cer- certainly gonna superchargers interest in hbo coupled with the fact that it max not only is releasing wonder woman On christmas day the same day that it's available to see in theaters on those that are open It's also making it. Its entire slate. The warner brothers. Entire slate of movies for the entirety of next year are going to be released the same way where there. It's available to stream on. Hbo max the same day. It's in theaters for a period of one month. So people have one month to to sign up for talks log into it if you already have. It watched like some of the you know wonder woman. Nineteen eighty-four dude matrix. Four tons of like huge movies and smaller ones that are also heading to spin. It looks like that's ever happened before people are really excited about it. It's gonna supercharge interest in the streaming service. But it also means that you know. It's kind of a crossing of the rubicon For decades theaters have had a seventy at least seventy five days where they get exclusive access to new movies and of course during the pandemic with these widespread theater closures senate as being closed a lot of companies have tried to figure out. How can you can't have a seventy five day window or something is only in theaters. When there aren't any theatres open and the ones that are people. Don't feel safe going to so we've seen a lot of experimentation about. What do we do in this situation. But this move by warner brothers. Hbo max are. They're making so many of these really big budget movies available. What's known as day and date or it's available for home video streaming the same day that it's in theaters. That's that's a point of no return like things are never. They might not look exactly like that once. The coronavirus and the pandemic are in our rear view window. But it's never going to be theaters and the transit. Never going to be exactly the same again. So the reaction will imagine for folks out there who are locked down this is. This is good news but not everyone has created this with open arms. Right number of directors filmmakers actors have been up in arms. Or who's been sort of speaking out against this. Practice will certainly christopher nolan. Who is a longtime warner brothers director. He's bamed all of his big films with warner brothers and most recently His tenant was released by warner brothers and not partly led to this decision. That warner brothers needed to figure out something other than purely theatrical premieres for films tenant was released it did tentative fine overseas it did reasonably well but in the us tanks. Like i he nolan is is a faint is fame Famously defensive of the theatrical experience. He's one of those ought autour filmmakers who treasures that big dark room and the hush crowd gasping all the same time like. That's that's is cocaine or whatever and he didn't want to give that up and they didn't make him and they released tenet where it had an exclusive period in theaters and it s than sixty million dollars at the box office. That you know. It's standard for one of his movies to make one hundred million plus in the us at the box office so the fact that they saw that it's just not tenable Just not tenable to have this sort of theatrical this preciousness around theatrical release at least during the pandemic they went a different route they. There's is the most extreme that any studio has announced so far a lot of other studios are trying to be a little more compromising and their decision was made largely without consultation with filmmakers. Which you know. It's one thing to up end. These long held norms. Some of which a lot of filmmakers really treasure like christopher nolan really treasures this theatrical the experience and protecting it but it's not always it's it's the medium not the message sometimes in the fact that they sort of dropped this bomb on these people without with wonder woman. There's a lot of consultation with those filmmakers but the entire slate like they couldn't reach out because people talk in hollywood if they reached out to some people get all over town so they basically maybe with a little bit of notice tried to get it out to some people but essentially shut. Drop this bomb on the filmmaker community and that in addition to the fact that it was such a dramatic change from what's baked into contracts and what people expected is it led to a really huge backlash and we're going to see if they're going to get sued or get sued. You might have to walk back many things. They might have to take something that were on the two thousand twenty one slate off the twenty twenty one slates and they don't fall under this so called hybrid strategy. That's something we're going to play out next year. Well curious if this is a a one off thing or is this this pandemic related that twenty one is like twenty twenty a bit of a lost year as be struggled to kind of get back enormously but once you get past it go back to normal. You mentioned the crossing the rubicon. How do you think things the changes that were saying. Now my kind of play out the long term or will there be more of a hybrid approach like what one of the things look like once we get to some semblance of normalcy again. It's never going back to the way. It was like the way the seventy five day ninety day window. That theaters get new movies. That's not coming back even after the pandemic because i think consumers for a really long time have wanted more options. Especially i mean. Young consumers don't understand even older consumers. Don't understand why you have to wait that long to choose where you get to watch your movie you know. Like the seventy five and ninety day window and theater followed by the dvd followed by online vod online rentals followed by a pay one window followed by a pay to win. Like there's going it's going to change but we can say for sure. Theaters are not going to be able to count on that sort of cushion. Seventy five day to ninety day window getting all new movies. They can't count on that because too many of these studios are owned by media companies that are also launching streaming services. I'm really want them to succeed. It's not just warner brothers on by. At and t. and also owns hbo. Max that is playing and experimenting with these new formats like you mentioned milan. That's disney disney decided disney of all studios. They build their franchises on theatrical release. That means a lots of them. But they're still even toying with things like you said they released hamilton which is supposed to be a big screen movie. Next year they released it more than a year in advance and put a totally free on disney plus for their big budget stuff. They're putting it on disney plus with this. What's not calling premier access which is basically when you pay a thirty dollar extra fee and you get movies like milan that you can stream day and date same day as in theaters next year. They're going to do that with riot. Dragon but even with dizzy. They've said they haven't defined what they're gonna do with marvel movies. It looks like they're gonna give marvel movies. Which are you know. Some of their biggest blockbusters that they still have on the slate coming up. They're going to give them some time in the theaters because they know how important that is to building a franchise having that sort of mythic proportion in a theater is really important to a marvel movie whether or not black widow comes to streaming a lot earlier than it would have before in previous you know. In the olden days. A year ago it would've taken about six months to nine months for any theatrical disney movie to make the disney plus. Maybe that'll shrink. What we do know is that theaters are not going to be able to count on a seventy five day. Window consumers are going to have a lot more options about win and where they get to watch new movies and the theatrical spirits is going to have to change you know without having that really special treatment that kid gloves treatment of getting seventy five day window. You're going to see theaters having to adapt offering more food upgrading. The experience of going there They're gonna have to experiment with a lot of different payment models even maybe The point is movie. Theaters haven't really had to adapt or innovate for decades. Because i've had this protected window and that protected window is going to change. But it's never coming back the way it was and the theater. Experience is going to change too so that change is thrust upon them and they're forced to adapt. Do you think theaters are doomed to failure are they are they they are they screwed ultimately. Because i frankly i missed the theater experience but i can't see myself going back for while and so we'll we'll theater survive long enough to be able to adapt and change. Yeah the are going to survive like they just won't be as many and they won't look the same as they did. Which you know a natural thing movies have been around cinemas have been around for a really long time. It's one of. Its basically the first mass mass visual audio visual media You don't have theaters like the depression-era people's palaces anymore. we don't go to theaters. That look like someplace that would have a metropolitan opera in. That's what happened in the twenties thirties. We don't have that anymore because things change television happened. So that's going to be another change but what you're gonna see the the gigantic megaplexes. Amc's the cinemark probably going to get smaller because they can't if you don't have that exclusive access to something that people can choose whether or not they're watching it on that big screen or watching on their home screen where people are going to be able to. They're going to choose to watch it on their home screen and so you don't just need as many movie screens in america anymore. So we're going to see theaters close. We might see some chains completely. Go out of business. The thing that will be interesting to see is how smaller chains mom-and-pop theaters you know the local art house theater. The smaller chains like alamo draft house. We're already seeing that. Those are those are the theaters in cinemas that are more likely to adopt because they don't have a sort of mcdonald's mass market Happy meal mentality. they're catering to a local community. They're more likely to know the sort of things that would bring people into their theater if it's more than just movies it's easier for them to pivot in. Adopting alamo draft house was one of the first chains so to speak. That offered this rent a whole theater option. Which has become more popular during the pandemic instead of having to spend three hundred to a thousand two more dollars to rent entire theater. It's like look we can't can barely show this to people because of restrictions. Why don't you rent the theater for a hundred bucks and you can bring fifteen of your closest friends and you can all like sit apart from each other and you can be pretty confident that we're going to be sanitizing it because we don't or trying to stuff seats because we have to stuff seats. They were the first ones to innovate in that sense. And we start to adopt adapt that model so no like theaters. Theaters aren't going to die. They're just gonna look a lot different in the future
Activision Blizzard Reportedly in Talks with Team Owners to Reduce Franchise Buy-Ins
"Blizzard's franchise leagues buy-ins raised a ton of eyebrows around Esports. It's the o w l kicked it off with franchise fees to the original 12 teams at twenty million dollars each. The aid expansion teams that came after the first season paid even more according to various reports about some reports said that those binds might get up to sixty million dollars. The Call of Duty League was similar all the start of branches paid 25 million bucks for a spot and they haven't had any expansion teams yet. Well that investment has not been recouped and is in danger of crippling franchises the pandemic cause massive turmoil, of course, but the declining popularity of OverWatch is also a key concern according to this report. Western Road, Tony Petty the former Dem will be Deputy Commissioner hired by a be over the summer has been in talks to teens about how to make their organization successful long-term. Nothing has been decided yet. But cutting down those lofty Pines would go a long way and removing the heartfelt by the team's very few e Sports organizations are profitable even the ones with the massive content machines quite a few of the organizations that compete in one foul or both of the CDL and o w l only compete in the CDL or owo. Those are the ones most in danger of folding without an Roi soon. Now, nothing has been decided hear. These are just box but these are talks that have happened for a while and they're incredibly important conversations. The fact that team owners are now less bullish on these leagues, especially the o w l than they were a few years ago is pretty telling if not entirely surprising the main selling point for the o w l was the Geo localized nature of the league and while that hasn't been entirely the fault of a b it hasn't been able to take off. There are no guarantees that even when cope with this model will be song. Either it had never been tried before guess we'll have to wait and see but if anybody wants to keep these leagues around especially the o w l they should be offering discounts on those by ends.
CAA Signs Esports/Lifestyle Organization 100 Thieves
"A Signs East sports lifestyle Org, a hundred thieves gaming lifestyle entertainment an entertainment organization hundred thieves has signed with Ca. founded in twenty seventeen by made shot hundred thieves comprises nearly fifty digital creators and sports. Professionals they've raised sixty million dollars from people like scooter, Braun, and Drake and I mean, they don't operate in that many sports anymore. I. Think they dropped counterstrike. So they've got fortnight Valeriy pretty much I think. neither of which I think are competitive like hundred thieves is not in the top valor roster rankings for at least I. Think they're not I have that big cash up compounds. Yeah. The cash-out compound is I mean I that's just a different level and yeah, let me just really. Like. Quote the article directly here because and then I'll let you give your opinion here William. But it says ca says it plans to help hundred thieves, expand its content and media interest into new areas in revenue streams through opportunities in digital content, talent, film, television podcasts, and more. So. So you know. The reason why I know and I know you thought it was a bit weird why I wanted to put this on the show. Okay. Yeah, I did I did but. Explain to me how like hundred thieves especially has been backing out of e sports right there. Sports Org that doesn't participate in many sports. They sell a lot of hoodies and there's a lot of fans of the merch right Good Great March but the big I like. As they've been pulling out of more and more e sports, I've been led to believe that this is because they want to move towards more and more content creation I assume. But now it seems they've also outsource that to see a basically this was my reaction would destroy. It was like it's sort of like giving away your own job like I thought if you weren't like there's two ways to be competitive east sports team, you can be all about you know winning right the stats, the numbers, the player recruitment strategy, the trophies right or you can be all about you know the eyeballs, the digital content, the talent, the film podcasts, and Incremental Revenue Opportunities Right. The article literally says ca will help with content talent film podcasts than incremental. Like. That is literally the business model they're on and all ready. Already E. Sports teams are somewhat at risk of becoming talent agencies. If you look at what they do many sports or skirt, the line of literally just being tat like they might just be better off on a talent agency business fundamentally with hundred thieves is right a talent agency. So why does the talent agency exactly meet a tolliday he and then doesn't your talent also have tellier telling you need shot doesn't have so you're telling me. Valkyrie doesn't have a talent agent like attached to be true. So like so what is it like you agent signs you to a team? So you consigned to an agent who will it's This. Unless, there is some real strategic reason why see a has better industry connectivity than hundred thieves right that there's just access points and opportunities they can insert the town until. But if that's the case I would say CIA should launch a sports and have their own team and do it themselves. You know what I mean like it really doesn't add up to me unless an last and I'm kinda calling this. My DIGNAM ISRAELIS MAY BE CA will buy one hundred thieves like maybe this is prep for a purchase or sale or something. 'cause let's see it make strategic i. don't think that's having it all but that's the only way. It makes strategic sense because the only reason why you would take this over is if you may be planned on folding at an and this was an interim step, but it's weird
Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line In Flux Due To Injuries
"Have lots of talk about as it relates the cowboys I just what I think of this team this year and the expectations after Jerry Jones finally made the gutting decision that led to Jason Garrett showing up the building every day with a binder underneath his arm and dutifully hoping that he would. Get a stay of execution cowboy fan celebrated not only the draft pick a CD lamb but a coach was skins. Mike McCarthy hasn't exactly translated into the season that they had hoped for, and we're expecting some of it has to do with injuries bobby and we'll get to those in a second but a lot of teams are having to deal with injuries this year. Yeah. I, mean, the team the cowboys have up here the browns they've got a lot of injuries to deal with I. Mean The seahawks had you know a lot of patchwork stuff that they were doing last Sunday against the cowboys and so injuries are an excuse they're not necessarily a good excuse though for this cowboys team I think they, they definitely are missing some guys. They probably feel a little bit like we're not gonNA know who we are for real until probably mid October when randy gets reinstated fully you get hopefully late and vander aeschbacher. Corner start getting healthy so. It may be a situation where the cowboys are kind of you know we're GONNA fight and we're GONNA get as best we can until we get healthy and that's not necessarily an excuse that they're giving. It's just this is the way it's gotta be, and we kind of make do a little bit because they are decimated in the secondary. They've had issues at linebacker they've you know had the issues along the offensive line they lost jar when they're starting tight end and So I, mean they've definitely. Had those issues the thing that they don't want. You, you can't really do anything about injuries. You just adapt as best. You can the thing they don't want his they can't have. Three drops and you know two and a half yards per touch from Zeke Elliott. They can't have Jalen Smith missing tackles consistently and still be sixty million dollar guy they can't have. Dak Prescott turning the ball over. They need to have him protecting the ball. They can't have you know some of these. Occasional Amari Cooper focus drops. You expect injuries you deal with those. What you can have is all of that and then along in the secondary, you can't have guys just making really low I q reads and busted covered just stuff that doesn't seem to be a factor of trying to learn a new defense. This just seems like flat out low I q stuff of not recognizing who's assignment is who's You know I think back to Jalen Smith's comment to a about. Throwing it out through a little bit. Maybe they need to simplify the playbook if our fans aren't familiar with that one, let's play that one real quick. People, find beams the defense could innocent the group. Absolutely. Absolutely. I. Believe. Allowing more allowing US more opportunities to Hound in on what? We're actually going to run in in our game plan. I believe it's important. That each and every player knows in and out what they have to do. With a smaller playbook, you you know gives us better opportunity to do that. And like I said this about as growing each and every week. On coaches are the same page, the players on the same page and we're just trying to do whatever it takes to get that much better. Each and everyone is that players that aren't capable of learning the playbook or is it possibly too complicated? I don't know but I, got to tell you for all the people that wanted Rod. Marinelli Outta here have been overly impressed with Mike Nolan's defense. Again, injuries are an issue, I mean you lose Gerald McCoy loosely Van Deresh. You lose your to starting Corner Anthony Brown, and Lucy, but even they were healthy in that first game. I didn't think this team look that good. No, and you know it's again it's one of those things where not even a mention he's been healthy for the season but Jordan Lewis missed all the camp. I. Sale. Yeah. Exotic Woods was a big part of your problem last Sunday against the seahawks but I think overall everybody's got to step up. You know it's funny. We had Had the funny line during training camp. When asked him do you think about opting out at all and he said, Nope, contract to your baby and there's a lot of guys back there right now in contractors Jordan Lewis Cheeto you've got exertive your woods is another one. And it's fascinating that they're seeming to have these issues not just with again, the adjustment or or or skill players opposite them it's they're just dropping the ball in terms of. Knowing really basic fundamental stuff that that should have been all ironed out already and and you can say, maybe that's a a an issue with you didn't have some of the same lead up time or some of the same work that you would normally get but everybody had those same sort of issues and and not everybody is having these same sorts of just busted coverage touchdowns. I. Think there's four already on the year that were just left wide open by somebody not knowing an assignment including three last week against the
Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?
"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.
Biden shatters record with $364.5 million haul in August
"Eye catching news is the fundraising numbers that Biden is reporting for the month of August according to the new. York Times his campaign received more than hundred sixty, million dollars for the entire month, which would blow pass Barack Obama's previous record set in two thousand eight. The months numbers were helped by two huge events, the Democratic convention, which is Essentially A. Four, night commercial or telethon, and then announcing Comma Harris has his choice for VP, which apparently led to the campaign racing forty, eight million dollars in the forty eight hours after the announcement not to be outdone trump in the RNC said they raised about seventy, six, million dollars during last week's convention whereas Biden raised seventy million during the Democrat convention. But this huge month from Joe definitely cut into trump's fundraising
Insider trading issues raised after Kodak's stock gets hot
"Shares of Kodak taking another leg lower today as the drama around the company Continues Swirl. The latest twist. Kodak. Significantly up to its lobbying spending before being awarded seven hundred and sixty five million dollar government loan according to Reuters Kodak Spent Eight hundred seventy thousand dollars in lobbying efforts between April and June. Compare that to less than five thousand dollars it spent in Q. One of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred now as. We've been reporting here on fast money. The rise in Kodak's years before news officially broke of that government loans, concerns of insider trading and an SEC broke the company's earnings call last night Kodak CEO said, he supports the government's decision to put the loan on hold until I'd investigation is complete. Karen you have puts in this stock. What is remarkable is that it's nowhere near the level it was trading at prior to the win the loan was announced. Right. Five hundred percent more than that. It's interesting to me that that's a great return on those lobbying dollars, right? I mean eight, hundred, thousand. Seven hundred sixty, million dollar loan or whatever. It might be I think the CEO had to say that I don't really know what else he can say like does disregard those that all that option noise give us the money anyway I think that this I think it's sort of become an embarrassment of to the trump administration and they probably should just. Speaking now someone who's long puts right that they should just let this one go and not not fun this loan it's too noisy. Ten and Every part of that option is just terrible right Tim. What it gets back to you know even if they get the loan, are they the right company to be producing the pharmaceutical? Talk. Once upon a time, try to be a blockchain company. Now back to photography company trying to be a generic drugmaker ingredient maker is right company. I mean. This is a company that has tried to reinvent itself Multiple Times since twenty twelve bankruptcy. And so I just it's hard for me to understand. We don't have enough of a show to talk about the what lobbying efforts or like and the impact and how the shouldn't happen anyway even with real companies. But I think if you look at the trading volume volume on the stock, it went from trading by appointment to trading two hundred and fifty million shares at its peak two weeks ago It's still trading about nine million shares to about eating a million dollars of turnover which tells you there's just an extraordinary backdrop still I agree with Karen, I think there's more to go here.

WanNa make sure they don't get saddled with too much. Unpaid debt pre pandemic discover had been growing steadily and profitably twenty. Nineteen was a good year and the company was expecting twenty twenty to be even better instead. Discover lost about sixty million dollars in the first quarter of this year and its future like the future of so many other businesses is clearly uncertain which is to say things may not be any easier at the other major credit card companies both city and capital. One say they are also tightening up credit requirements C net reports. Okay so maybe you can't get a new card and you haven't seen one of those zero balanced transfer offers that to flood your mailbox in months but that's not all. Some companies are reducing credit limits for existing customers. It's happening a lot one out of four American credit card users. That's fifty million.

The Public Transit Problem in San Francisco
"As cities across the US. Start opening backup. There is a question looming over many of the country's biggest economies public transit trains. Subways and bus lines are crucial to cities like New York. Chicago and San Francisco but public transit tends to pack people together. It is basically a social distancing. Maher Jeffrey Tomlin is the director of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency right now. Streetcars and rail systems in the city are not running and many bus routes have been shut down but as San Francisco starts to re-open Jeffery has to find a way to safely restart public transit. We call Jeffrey at his home. Or by the way it's a little spotty in places But if we are so thrilled to have you with US thank you for joining us So how long have you been with the San Francisco? Mta I started on December sixteenth was pretty intense first one hundred days. Oh my gosh you just started yes. I'm sorry that's A. That's a lot really fast. So Jeffrey. What steps did you take? The pandemic started Soon as the emergency order was issued a cut of military style strategic war room council gets formed and we formed that quickly knowing that the issues around the virus. We're going to hit our department. I so we put all that together at the end of February and then in a worm style. Like like in the movies really. Yeah I mean you know you're spaced out in a big conference room with whiteboards trying to figure out what on three going to so from what I understand. There are some cities that have opened up. And you've been kind of taking some inspiration from from cities like Taipei that have gotten their public transportation system up in running And I think I read that you had like a zoom call with the transit director in. Taipei's that right that's right in fact the mayor of Taipei Join US Which was a special treat Not only as a city are they reducing dramatically but they are having a very very low transmission rate on their public transit and they're public transit ridership is nearly back to a pre covet level. Oh so what are they doing? They have rigidly enforced Wearing a face coverings. They put up temperature checking stations at the fare gates before you get on the subway. Little infrared pens that like basically it goes near your forehead and it's an infrared reader off of your forehead so mask requirements temperature checks. What else are they doing? Contact tracing is a really really big deal and this is another area where we're going to struggle in the United States the the intensity of the contact tracing that they do in part because of the public surveillance cameras. How do you feel about the prospect of getting San Francisco Public Transit? Like ready for you know to have like it's normal. Seven hundred thousand people writing it. We know more now about how to protect our workers and so more workers are coming back to work on. That is the first step and then the second step is having that uncomfortable conversation with our city leaders. About how much are we prepared to enforce the rules so Jeffrey? A lot of the changes you're talking about would be quite expensive What is the San Francisco? Mta's budget situation so back in January separate Cisco's at the peak of a boom economy wealthier than it has ever been one of the wealthiest cities in the world and the Transportation Agency had a sixty million dollar structural deficit meaning. Our expenses were rising significantly faster than our revenue and we were going to have to cut something or find new revenue just in order to be able to keep swimming in place by the time shelter in place was ordered in mid March. Our primary revenue streams were down eighty to one hundred percent so the city is devastated economically and the transportation department more so at the moment than most other agencies because we are so dependent upon transit fares and parking fees and fines and all of those went zero. So that's the other thing that keeps me awake at night. How on Earth do I deliver service to the public in this time of intense need at the same time our revenue has completely collapsed and the absolute last thing that I want to do is to lay off a single worker in a time of economic crisis unprecedented since the Great Depression? We have to figure out what what gets cut a Ford to deliver the service that we had been delivering back in January and it will be a while before the city's economy comes back

"sixty million dollars" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA
"Loans whether it's the state bridge loan program or the programs that came out of the carriage act at the federal level they are just not enough what are your thoughts on the federal response the government response to what we've seen what could potentially be sad and this is one of those things where I think that honestly policy makers kind of regardless of what they do are not going to make everybody happy and it's a very general sense I mean you're talking about an economy of I think twenty two trillion dollars and so when you're talking about that magnitude of trade of wealth and then you're talking about in a the only affecting it three hundred and sixty million dollars for that paycheck protection program is frankly a drop in the bucket in terms of if these policies are likely to have a long term effect I don't think so and I don't think that most economists would argue that there is long term or there are long term solution in the current plans that are being implemented they are intended to be short term relief measures and then of course the issue becomes as it continued on an active goes longer and longer and as we're seeing very quickly on that three hundred and sixty billion dollars for the P.

P. they ran out of money today within two weeks and so the the policies are these stop gap measures are are a bandaid on something that is much much bigger that requires something a lot more that being said I don't know what the solution is necessarily and I don't think that the solution is spending more and more and more money on this issue because it's not alternately going to fix the problem the way that will come out of this economically is when we start re opening the economy of course the issue there is that what people have been concerned about is that if the economy is re opened our people are saying if the three open to early then what do we wind up being happening in terms of people getting infected with the virus of hospital capacity and things like that so there are tradeoffs involved yeah I and these trade offs are very very difficult for us to quantify their apparently difficult for us to talk about I noticed a lot of its role going back and forth when people are talking about these these different costs and they're saying that as a social science social scientists and economists and then things that policy makers need to be thinking about it while last question for you how much of our recovery is going to depend on how other countries handle their outbreaks were obviously very focused and concerned on what we're doing here but we've seen how this disease spreads how it disrupts supply chains and really every aspect of the global economy even if we get it right here how important is it gonna be that other regions of the world get right to I mean other countries responses are certainly important I think one of the things that's really critical to highlight is that for some people the response to the pandemic has been to behave kind of like a total of like well everything else like we're so connected internationally we need to be producing everything domestically and that is the exact opposite of what what we should be thinking about it what we should be doing if anything we should be expanding it where it is that we are looking to get our resources look for the people who are best able and capable of providing with those resources and engaging in extensive trade so while it's important for you to think about and to look at how other countries handle their mitigation efforts I think particularly if people are concerned about maybe people from other countries bringing in the virus although the data on that definitely does not bear out the idea that people coming from other countries offer disproportionately bringing in the virus compared to you it's Brenda medically I'm engaging in trade is going to be critically important for economic recovery university of Tampa assistant professor of economics Dr Abby Blanco Dr Blanco always great to talk to great to have you back on and I'm look I'm sure will be catching up again real soon because the economics of this or just you know such a huge part of the story anytime thanks for having me all right coming up in a moment I'm gonna talk to the community foundation of Tampa Bay they're doing some really great work connecting again.

the cheating scandal the Houston Astros any impact whatsoever on Carlos Beltran and also look at the championships Sunday in the National Football League it's Mousa Maggie ten AM this morning right here on sports radio one oh one nine FM in sports radio sixty six WFAN WFAN FM New York this call for Iran is Wednesday morning at JJ after died Jan two Stransky giving Germany right here all the fan of course you want to listen to WFAN and HM anyway download the radio dot com app and favorite us today and if you have a small speaker just say Pelee WFAN and chill borrow coming off a season three ages at LSU I think the questions are going to be can al he translate moving forward into the NFL I would argue that again I think he's got the leadership qualities you're looking for the mobility that you're looking for the alarm is good enough it's the sudden rise to being a guy coming out and aware and now all of a sudden being the four wanted to be the top pick in the draft but when Heisman Trophy you win the national championship you throw sixteen touchdowns in a year I mean that's gonna be impossible overlook but said to Brooklyn is but wait patiently Davis up next on a phallus out days Jay I just wanted to throw a little perspective out here when the when the whole thing happened the unspeakable crimes of the Penn state child sex abuse scandal they were fined sixty million dollars a four year post season ban and the vacated older victories from nineteen ninety eight to twenty eleven okay and when you know I understand what you're saying when you say that the Astros you know we still with the did a twenty seventeen we you know we also so what Lance Armstrong did we also so let mark McGwire did but just because we so if he did it we also have the now we know how they did it largely in part because of this incredible advantage of knowing the difference between when a fast balls coming and then off speed pitch which is night and day it's everything hitter to adjust his body and to me these these punishments are ridiculously well I mean I understand that there's a limit with a five million dollars comes down a days of we're talking about the money Major League Baseball cannot find the Astros more finally dollars is the Max and we're going to disagree on the idea vacating wins to me it means absolutely nothing because my older watch then we'll win this what the Houston Astros Rabal do like let me ask you a question Louisville won the national championship in two thousand thirteen I don't like to go down the Penn state road because that situation is so disgusting it so despicable with Jerry Sandusky I don't want to even like equate that to something that's going on the field as for somebody looking to get a competitive edge because it's just apples and oranges type of comparison but wolf all right they're a team that had a scandal going on Rick Pitino all that good stuff okay whatever did they win a title in twenty thirteen and did they not right I understand what you're saying but my response to that is there's a reason why there's a reason why the ashes to detention because it didn't help that they cheated only because it helped them so in the grand scheme of things I don't think anybody would argue that day that's fair a warning World Series this help them get to where they wanted to go they said they still won the World Series each circle on record it's impossible to kind of Kuwait how much of a difference okay okay did it give him an extra wind may be against the Yankees maybe it did maybe it didn't but ultimately the Yankees didn't hit nat series the Astors that really good starting pitching soldiers they're penalized they will so overtime wins is I just can't look at it and say well guess what that championship never happened I just okay with that way and I I agree with you there for I believe the only legitimate compromised is to put in a visual asterisk I know I know you're saying it doesn't mean much to you but I I just want it to be official in the history book that it has to be tainted if it's not already tainted your readers may like if we talk five years from now ten years from now about the Astros in two thousand seventeen what is the conversation that you and I gonna have the fact that they had these journals sign stealing cheating scandal it's on record for me that's good enough the fact that you want I can have that conversation in five years going into now I need to vacate the title I need to put an asterisk next to a title we always gonna I fully that it that it said to Long Island Mike is out next the joins us on a phallus out might JJ I use their own body been talking to your around a mall but by my eyelids Utah you Mike you must be a very very happy camper I really

and I just want to go back and say listen I think it what is the best how season I'm not gonna say team the best college season ever because if you look at who they beat a top ten team the top five teams defending national champion from last year and your ball Heisman Trophy winner coach Judea for born when our political off when a to me I'm this is what I think I'm right that's never happened before although the war the one theme I control P. one and a national champion A.

psyche let's check in with resident psychiatrist Dr Peter Breck and Peter what's happening around the planet well first your exist so much fake news that is really hard to figure it out and even what gets selected you know you mentioned several I mean there are hundreds of hot spots around the world so we have that suspected bye bye who gets hit but there are some issues going on when I might also say George this is one of the most peaceful here is the world has ever had now World War one World War two or Vietnam or North Korea and we've even managed to reduce a lot of the violence in the Middle East and stomped came in so I don't think it's the worst of times but they're a good like three issues that I think come up independence we want to be independent who wants to be independent Barcelona once he independent one of these about trump is he's addressing all of these in terms of America he's saying America needs to be free American needs to be in the and then another big issue is the resentment he's corrupt regimes everywhere almost everywhere and trump is saying kicked him out check out the people who've been you know find none on the left and the right from all the parties that you know been bilking us and then supporting their own families their own kids their own cronies so I think that's and not the universal theme and then as these religious conflicts and trump is saying no we're not going to happen in this country no you know you're not going to just stare up you know violent religious hatred towards becoming the dominant religion so I think that we've seen a lot of stuff in the world is being reflected in in America and I think trump is doing a very interesting job echo Romeo a looking at this and it's also says you know why should he take all this hatred for saying all right you know we calm down things and at least but it's not our fight between the Turks and the Kurds it's not that that fight going on forever that fights going on everywhere forever so America be glad we here because we have strong traditions we got the rule of law we got the constitution there are heavy attacks against all those going on and if they if they

"Is thirty five thousand dollars tonight hi wait a minute where do you stay though they have a hotel up there there whether certain to make it is that there's a big deal say the logistics are not one hundred percent planned out which no you don't exactly as next year to from in space on hope that's planned yeah I know that seems like it's coming right up yep and it's private companies NASA says they will not participate in that also thirty five thousand dollars and if you have it you have a tons and tons of money and you're guaranteed to be safe I might do that can they make that guarantee no they can't well then forget it is that include the flight that no that's fine on average will cost sixty million dollars like well they live part out all my god for one night plus sixty million to get there and back thanks I will pay it Jacqueline flew now called no not at all tip twenty percent of sixty million dollars which you do it though if you could tell you would not know I would raise that are it to all right yeah I mean first of all when NASA who has gone I know Gerry doesn't believe it but when they have gone to places like the moon and they have spent nights in space when NASA says they're not going to have anything to do with it I think well no I don't yeah I don't know man that NASA saying they don't want anything to do it if you just say that they don't let me finish or not yet they don't want to be apart the necessarily because it is always totally over the safety it might be that it's not in their interests of getting involved a private company when they're investigating other things like Mars and stuff why would NASA start opening up hotels that doesn't make sense I guess that they haven't even started building said hotel who's first of all let's say you get to space K. you're able you have a sixty million dollars was gonna wait on you when you get to the hotel take your bag Elaine's obviously was that check you in you're worried about somebody that yeah who's gonna feed me and give me drinks like what yes go there and you just hang out your room that's boring it was the thing might be that you just stay on the shuttle but they just orbit since nine just spend the night there that could be another what's the point of the hotel you can't do like versions that's later that's a huge experience that does that that's an experience of what I do what I would consider it if I had the money sixteen free I I mean I would have to have some beers before I when I think I would do it or if like all my kids were grown functioning adults not like in my seventies if you die you die now now now cancel yeah can I ever want to die and but I think I would be less worried then like okay I've lived a good life if something were to happen right now it we live the good life in comparison of what's happening now but in in the full scope of things seventy as an adult but I will say the one I would not do that they have already a line of applications is a trip to Mars and you can actually stay at Mars there's no return flight back no thank you is numb lance bass if you try to do that use spaces yeah the Mars like literally you think who would do that they have tons of people that have applied to go to Mars without a return flight back I want to sign up for it knowing that it's probably never going to happen that's also in your lifetime and I would only do that I wouldn't want to be the first wave of going to Mars and staying there I wanna see how it goes for a couple decades would you even consider staying there this one thing on the on the space flight that is my bill dangers but you're coming back is a man who the president as maybe they'll be the new thing I'm a go to my it was there in Canada they don't go only so many things you could possibly do and Marcel it's not like you got a PF Changs down the street that's my point about the hotel in Spain I would think that may be an experience I may lose one night although it's a long way to go for one night I won't drive for hours and was a summer for one night out but let one fly to space we're we're gonna be looking at the earth from outer space I think I would be up on my way home I guess this is incredible credible although you know people are about ten mins look at earth from space like this boring then you're on your phone this is boring get someone give their own no reception great thirty six I don't know I don't think either I don't go scuba diving field to death as a means to me how long does it take to get to space I don't think it takes that long to get to the first like into orbit that's mean in it no not when you're not going to Mars is one thing but just getting into initial space I don't think it's that big of a talking like couple hours yeah yeah maybe less it might be minutes yeah further interview to come a little bit annoyed because it is just you know just when you're no I got an answer what we're not the actual time but you can do the math which we won't do live there because of the stupid there is for last two decades astronauts from eighteen countries have lived aboard a research facility which orbits the earth at an altitude of

The floor manager hustled off to placate another other anxious entrepreneur as wally glanced at chip and shook his head. You never been nervous day in your life have you chip didn't respond but he didn't have to while he knew his every thought that'll happen. I guess when you you represent the same client for fifty years once upon a time as the first black agent in the history of William Morris Wally had represented lots of remarkable talent Marvin Gaye Helen Reddy Sam Cooke Diana Hannah Ross Simon and Garfunkel too many to name really but when wally saul chips potential everything changed while he left his clients and the agency behind and put all his energy into making chip a household name and how are we feeling while we are be ready for our close up the segment producer talked to wally like he was nervous eighty year old man trying to pull a rabbit out of a hat which in fact he was we're feeling good good Carol right as rain. It's okay to be nervous wally. Just remember to take your time out there. Talk Slow just like we rehearsed when the sharks ask you questions. Don't get too cute. Just give them the facts have fun and be yourself only way I know how to be Carol. It's the only way I know how to be Carol walked away and now it was just the two of them waiting in the shadows while Ian chip chip and wally had it really been half a century had while he really built a business that turned out sixty million dollars a year and revolutionized an industry. Had He really let that business slip through his fingers of course he had that's why he brought to the shark tank to raise some capital to start from scratch one more time the Mahogany doors swung opened without a sound carol whispered action and while he smiled his famous smile. It was a long walk longer than it looks on television. The Bald Guy in the middle wasn't smiling but that's okay. He never smiled mark. What's his name looked friendly enough and the blonde girl from the home shopping channel seem nice to while he wasn't sure about the real estate lady or the man on the far right with the unpronounceable last name he wondered if any of them might remember him? He wondered if any of them would still invest in his famous client. The way so many others had in the past while his mark smiled at the sharks and began the speech he'd rehearsed all month. He talked about his love of business his joy in living he talked about his beloved aunt Della who actually introduced him to chip years before wally became an agent then he played his famous Kazoo flashed his famous smile and hit the sharks with both barrels of charm. Finally he stepped back and turn the presentation over to chip as always chip was a sensation he wowed the audience in fact according to the sharks chips unique appeal was enough to close the deal almost as the main ingredient in Walis elise new line of gourmet cookies the small but delicious chocolate chip had always been the secret to wally success. Unfortunately while the sharks loved his home baked cookies there was there was something missing from Walis pitch something that looked a lot like deal breaker you see forty years ago while he created the very first gourmet chocolate chip cookie and promoted it like one of his famous clients clients but when while he needed cash to fend off the competition he began to sell off pieces of his company and when there were no more pieces left to sell while he sold his aunt dulles recipe along with the rights to his name name and that's a pity because forty years later when the chips were down once again the sharks didn't care how delicious is new cookies tasted or how many extra chocolate chips he jammed into each one or how much charm the eighty year-old promoter could still summon up on national television. They just wanted to invest in Walis name a name he no longer controlled consequently while he entered the shark tank with nothing but a story Ori and the plate full of chocolate chip cookies for the sharks that made for a delicious snack but allows the investment so they passed and for Wally Amos famous Amos to those who remember that's the way the cookie crumbled anyway. That's the way I heard it.

"Visit with Mike OPEC from the Pierre. Appel Capac cast got so much on the docket here, almost don't know where to start but I do. And that would be the deputy Scott Peterson. Former school safety officer at Marjory stoneman Douglas, high school arrested and charged with multiple counts of child neglect. Culpable negligence and perjury. Yeah. Charlie this one? This one is going to bring a lot of bad horrible memories back to the forefront as we have to remember how many of these children died while this, this guy stood outside and the time city talked about hearing, the gunfire in thinking it was outside or believing it was not in the building. That's part of what the, the perjury charges. But this is just a it's just bringing back the horrific situation at Marjory stoneman Douglas school. I don't know how to feel about this, Charlie. I'm conflicted because it's like, well, yeah, I guess if it's the law, you have to enforce the law, but is this going to bring back any of those kids, or we in all those families back through that horrible day? Again, bring him back. But the argument on the other side of that would be that you wouldn't have to be concerned, maybe of having to bring back some of them had he. Done his job. And I'm just playing devil's advocate. Yeah. You're you're a hundred percent. Right. But it's one of those ones where I saw an initially I went good. And then I went okay, now I start hearing, the, the comments from the parents, who still, you don't never get over that. So it's a it's a tough one, but the law has to be enforced. So I automatically side with the law. And the local police union says they are in the word. They use was concerned about Peterson being charged. What do you think? They mean by that. Well, you know, so often we see the patrolman's union or the lawyers for these union standing up and saying is this going to open the doors for certain prosecution. So we're going to question everyone who delayed or didn't go to a respond to a situation quickly enough. So they're gonna play that game they have to defend their membership. And he was a member of good standing at the time. So this is one of those things I guess when you watch. People defending those, you know, might be bad guys. You wonder how can they do that? But it is their job. We all know we've all heard it before you're not supposed to complain about something and makes you have a solution for it. There are some NBA players who are asking that owners of team stop calling themselves owners will. What are they supposed to call them? Yeah. Dream on green a guy who makes a base salary of sixteen and a half million dollars a year. Yeah, you can own me. Own Bob, but all day long at sixty million dollars a year. Well, he doesn't like the term says it brings up a thoughts of slavery, and I started thinking, well, what about the homeowners and store odors and dog owners what are we going to do? So they want the name change the title change to, like chairman or CEO. But Mark Cuban God bless him. He's the one who stood up initially and said, no. We own the team you're now owned by you're not owned. You're a player you're an employee but we own the team. What else are you gonna call? This is one of the craziest ones. I love this one. Well, let's add another crazy to it. Apparently, dodgeball is out as a matter of fact, most playground games. These days are considered a problem. Yeah. Thank God, this came out of Canada. And, you know, the playground is the microcosm of the real world. At least it was for me. You'll learn about survival, you learn about pecking orders and everything else. And now these, these offended nieces are saying that we can have dodgeball in a matter of fact, tag is really a problem too, because it, it, it makes the slowest person in the group depict him. So this is just another bit of silliness. But thank God, it's only in Canada right now build the wall up there, too. And speaking of slow people and lastly, here, there are rumors running around that both Megan McCain and joy Behar are going to be out at the view. If either or both disappear you're gonna cry. Well, you know, like anybody losing their job. The ironically named joy Behar always gets my hackle up and Meghan. Mccain is sometimes a little too tough on, on the president in my opinion. But she's a good conservative in most cases I think this is a time out for both of them. This is the network saying alright you to sit on the bench for a week or so. And I think they'll both be back. But yeah it's just. I don't want anybody fired from a media job chart. You can you can take it easy because it's not gonna happen. I'm here to tell you the whole story is just about increasing. What few ratings they have at the view? Nobody's going anywhere. Good point. Yes. Of course. That's all I do is make good points. Well, at.
