I remember telling my husband that i was just kind of getting exhausted of having to always be out there right like i feel like i have to be active on twitter and have to be at all the conferences because i have to source mound work like a keep my pipeline of clients full. That's so interesting. And i do see you on twitter of course listeners. We will definitely link. Call him in the show notes and she does. Share some really great insights. You make it look easy but you're right that's a lot of work in the background and one thing that you had mentioned to me before is that you are the entire pipeline who've so like you had a customer with a very complicated devops situation and you are on call for that devops situation which which is a lot. Yes yes it. Is you a single point failure. So being a singapore to failure meads. You can't always take the time off that you want to take and you know now that i'm more mature in this business. I have a couple of other people that i've routinely will kind of they'll back me up if i want to take a vacation and i'll back them up but it's kinda hard i mean really like there have been times even now where i'm like man. I should just get like a nine to five because this is ridiculous. It's a lot of hustle. And the other thing. I didn't really understand as you think. Like in your head if you're sitting at home listening to this thinking. Ooh i want to become a consultant. So you think. Oh i'm gonna charge one hundred and fifty dollars an hour. I'm going to bill.

"The pandemic has devastated demand for air travel in response. Many airlines have pulled back offering fewer flights cutting jobs and rewriting the route maps yet. During all of this upheaval one carrier stands out. Southwest airlines is taking aggressive steps to expand. It's a high stakes gamble but southwest is betting. It'll help the company emerged from the pandemic stronger than before. Let's take a look at the company. Strategy and wide sky competitor's talking with the journals ala's insider who covers the airline industry for us. Hi allison it's always good to have you here. Thanks for having me so. Allison we should be clear. Southwest is facing plenty of struggles revenue in the third. Quarter is down. It's burning cash and it still dealing with the seven. Three seven max which won't return to service for a while yet but at the same time it's adding cities like palm springs. California steamboat springs colorado. It's also moving into big airports like chicago. O'hare is well. how can this be. yes definitely. there's no airline that has really escaped. The devastating impact of the pandemic and south west is no exception on track to lose money this year. You know really for the first time in in other breaking a forty seven year streak. It's a huge deal for the company. And they're talking about and seriously considering furloughs also for the first time in their history so you know. This is really unprecedented for them. But the strategy of being opportunistic a downturn. That's not that's not unusual for them. That's something they've done time and again in the past in sort of how they've grown throughout their history so in some ways it's it's not surprising to see them doing that again. Okay let's get into specifics. What's the strategy. What opportunity does southwest see here how they explained it was that the way their network is now. They have multiple flights day all of these cities. And that's been you know offering. That kind of schedule is sort of a big advantage for them but now that demand is down so much they just don't need to be offering five six seven flights a day in some of these places so they it means they have extra planes in extra people they need to deploy somewhere else so they sort of looked all over the country in thought like work and we really quickly move. That would kind of help bring in revenue right away for us. And that's how they picked some of these new cities as you mentioned. Southwest may break its profitability streak yet. It does have a lot of things working in its favor. It has less debt and lower costs compared to its rivals southwest. It's hard to say. Any airline is well positioned right now but southwest came into this crisis with a lot of advantages and they had a lot less debt than some of their biggest rivals so even though they've taken on a lot of debt during the pandemic they still they still have more cash than debt which is pretty rare position to be in for an and that's something that sort of gives them a little bit of a cushion and a little bit of flexibility to try things or the rivals like spirit and allegiant watching they offer low fares and find opportunities at empty your airports and is this. A big risk for south west. I was definitely watching. United executive sort of said at o'hare you know. They said we have the high grounds and they're not too worried from from what they said. But you know there are so few people traveling right now in the recovery expected to be so rocky. I i really think airlines are just competing over every passenger one. Great example of that is how the big airlines like united and american delta. Have done away with cheney's or most domestic changes. Anyway you know. That was a huge selling point for south west for years. So that's something that's going to make the competition even more heated. So what could that mean for travelers more options more competitive fares. Yes i mean over the course of its history. Southwest going into a market often brought fares down significantly and sort of got new people brought new people into traveling and something that the department of transportation once called the southwest effect. So i always tends to increase competition and bring down fares when a new entrant jumps into a market alison insider covers the airline industry for the wall street journal. Allison thanks so much. Thank you and finally. it's not just public. Health officials warning about the risks of large gatherings ahead of thanksgiving employers are also eager to get their message across. But just how far can companies go to restrict what their employees do chip cutter covers workplace issues for the journal and has been investigating what employers are doing. Companies are really going all out to encourage employees to stay safe releasing a flurry of memos and videos and guidance. Just telling people to largely stay in their homes to not gather with other people if they if possible but they really can only do so much. Employers can't really dictate how people spend their personal time and so while employers can put guidance and recommendations out there they really can't force people to do anything and some employment lawyers. We talked to also said that there are legal liabilities raised if employers monitor people social media activity for example or our punitive and their actions based on what people might do on the thanksgiving holiday.

"In the united states the death toll from corona virus surpassed two hundred fifty thousand a grim milestone with just a week ago until thanksgiving the us third significant surge of cases with fifty thousand deaths linked to covid nineteen reported in the past sixty days based on data from johns hopkins. University aviation is an industry. That's been hit particularly hard by the pandemic and norwegian air shuttle has filed for bankruptcy protection for two of its core units. This marked europe's biggest airline casualty yet from the pandemic. The airline is well known for offering budget travel options between the us and europe. It's chief executive said. The carrier is seeking reorganization as it hopes to emerge as a financially stronger and secure airline a bit later in the podcast. A closer look at the strategy by southwest airlines which is trying to position itself for growth amid all of this economic uncertainty. The audit results of georgia's election are expected later today. As the secretary of state there is required to certify results by friday a manual recount was ordered after the initial count show. Joe biden narrowly winning the state. Five million votes across the state had to be recounted by hand the journals. Alexa course has more. We know that president elect joe biden is leading in the state and georgia's secretary of state. Who's a republican. He's seeing this process. He said he doesn't think that will change. He thinks biden will still be declared the winner of the state. But what we could be seeing is kind of baller changes in vote totals. There are a lot of humans involved in this process. People sometimes make mistakes especially when they're working really long hours weekly. Unemployment claims are later this morning and are expected to remain high at around seven hundred thousand. We asked the wsj's labor economics reporter. Eric marafe of what could shape. This week's data specifically looking for this week and in the coming weeks is if there's an uptick in people seeking benefits and people being laid off as we see the krona virus surge parts of the country and most importantly see states at a new restrictions. we've typically seen. it's not necessarily the infection rate. But the restrictions that correlate with increased layoffs and we certainly saw places like michigan and ohio. Put on new restrictions in recent days. We'll have coverage of the unemployment claims coming up on the evening edition of what's news with the recent advances surrounding covid nineteen vaccines. There is hope the economy will accelerate its recovery in the medium term and investors are wondering when will see inflation. Pick up again. Joining me now. From london is the journalists and i heard stein. She's part of our market team and glad you're here hold on so. Is there any evidence that prices are rising on products. We use every day. So it's an interesting question because earlier in the year there was a lot of concern that we could see. Inflation really started picking up maybe even rising to levels that we haven't seen in years that was because the huge amount of stimulus from central banks and governments to try to deal with the pandemic but in reality there's all there's been no inflation in europe. We've actually seen several months. Deflation and the latest data in the us showed that prices are actually flat. So essentially the panamax blow to the economy. People's spending habits changing from the lockdowns from higher levels of unemployment and all the non essential source. Having to close this is actually outweighing. Any inflationary pressures from stimulus. So let's take a long-term view because eventually vaccines are expected to be distributed. Does that change the picture when it comes to pricing at all. Yes going forward. This is expected to change. And you're right back. Scenes are probably the key to this. Once they're widely distributed and life returns more or less than normal. Economists are generally expecting a big round and growth and inflation. Findings are picking up earlier this week. The fed chairman jerome powell so that he sees a this news on vaccines is something that will be great in the medium term but today and tomorrow it's all about this better the virus and that means low inflation and hurts instead in london many. Thanks thanks so much. One sector of the market. Getting a lot of attention is the airline industry will look at one carriers bold approach toward the future after the break..

"Night from Walter Reed Medical Center and image is standing by with more on his message to America about the corona virus aim and we heard plenty from the president yet. We absolutely did Kelly and it was really striking and dramatic scenes. Yesterday we saw the president walking out of Walter Reed under his own power, which was a good sign, the president dressed in a suit and tie. Walking to Marine One and taking off for the short flight from Walter Reed down to the white. House, once he arrived at the White House, we saw this dramatic moment where the president actually walked up the steps to the White House balcony and then stood and posed for pictures at the top of the balcony allowing Americans to see that he's standing on his own feed. He appears to be fine although doctors say he's not out of the woods. Just yet, they say he's going to have his fifth those of Rim Disappear White House today and he's going to be monitored by white. House physicians they've a top notch medical team at the White House all that will be happening over the next five days or so they say it won't be until Monday they'll be able to breathe that final sigh of relief as they call it. So something to watch their the president recording short video. That Americans shouldn't be afraid of the corona virus that he has seen it and he understands it and he doesn't want to dominate Americans lives and one thing that's for certain. Don't let it dominate you. Don't be afraid of it. Meanwhile, how is all of this affecting the presidential campaign? Well, we put a poll in the field on Friday night. This was right after the president was admitted to Walter Reed we we started polling Americans in battleground states. This is between October second and October four. So a couple of days in the wake of the President's hospital is hospitalization to get a sense of how this is impacting. Here's the headline number if you look at the support for the two candidates. In these battleground states fifty percent biden forty, five percent donald trump's. So that's a substantial lead there for Joe Biden in these battleground states at smaller than his lead nationally, which is about ten points in our polling. Five points in the battleground states that are going to be hard spot. Take a look at serious concerns about cove in those are jumping higher up to seventy two percent now by October third, and you see that spike up since September third, that's an interesting. Move Bit of movement there because it's not what the president necessarily would want ahead of the election, and then in terms of WHO's taking more appropriate personal precautions This is overwhelmingly Joe Biden seventy five percent Biden thirty, nine percent trump so as you look at this. What you're seeing is a race where Joe Biden is consolidating a lead in the wake of the president's hospitalization, and in the wake of that debate last week we'll see whether there are other events over the next month here that in the final stretch can change the calculus. The president's going to hope that he can do that by displaying strength and recovery from the virus, and then we're gonNA see that vice presidential debate on Wednesday night. So a lot more still to come there still some time here for the president, but the trend line is not where the president's people would like it to be right now guys back. View and we've been focused a lot on the president's personal health for obvious reasons. But there are so many people in his inner orbit now have come down with the corona virus in what does that mean in the final weeks of this campaign when people like hope Hicks when the press secretary when I'm sure other sort of trusted confidants aren't around look I mean the stark reality Kelly is that the president returned last night to a White House that is a hot zone for the corona virus. The first lady has been in isolation inside the White House residents with the corona virus the president infected return to the White House yesterday. First thing he did was take off his mask and pose for pictures of the top of the balcony. The residents is clearly an area where the corona virus is active. The the West Wing is also an area where the corona virus is active. We saw the press secretary and a number of press AIDS testing positive for the coronavirus just over the past twenty, four hours or so a number of staffers We're told inside the White House staff in terms of valets and housekeepers, and those sorts of employees have also tested positive for the coronavirus. It is going to be an enormous challenge to get the virus out of the. White House. That's something that presidents going to have to focus on in the days and weeks to come. It's a big daunting challenge because the White House is not a place that you can just evacuate and quarantine but that's the reality of the situation right now it's GonNa mean the president's GonNa have depleted manpower as he moves forward here toward the tail end of this campaign and the can you speak to what is adviser telling him about messaging about how he articulates message both of strength you're talking about but obviously, he made this comment in his in his tweet last night to say, don't let don't let Cova dominate your life. A lot of people looked at that statement and said, it dominated two hundred, ten thousand people's lives who died and how how he speak about the disease going forward. Look the jarring thing here is that the president received World Class Healthcare Right. He had a team of physicians. You could see the battalion physicians in the White Coats at Walter Reed who were treating him he had his own suite of rooms at Walter Reed he had access to experimental medicine the most Americans could never get I mean this president is not the average case here in terms of the coronavirus that said what he's telling Americans is don't worry about this thing it's it shouldn't be something to dominate your life. There's a risk yes but it'll be fine. We'll see how that plays on the campaign trail what the polling shows here. Is it the poll the election is moving away from the president not toward him and one of the things that is not clear going forward is exactly who his advisors are going to be. We don't know who is going to be able to talk to certainly physically it's going to be very limited at the White House. They're telling us that only very few AIDS are going to be able to have physical based to face conversations with the president those are going to be. Happy to have to be under very strict P. E. Mask wearing scenario. So physically, he'll be limited on the phone. How much energy will he have to be reaching out and talking to various people who can advise him on all of this that's not clear over the days and weeks to come to the president is saying he's back and he's feeling good and says, he's feel he feels as good as is felt in twenty years. So hopefully, he can reach out to a wider. Array of advisors, but there is that sense that he is in a bubble. As any president is normally and now that bubble is a lot smaller. Because Virus REMM. Desa very decks and methods owner are standard care. So he did get that I'm I'm hoping the regeneration drug is as great as you know, headlines life on yesterday and obviously that that was the one therapeutic that he got the person couldn't get, but that's the only one. Method zone are our standards of care and one of the reasons why the mortality rate we've got a much better handle in the last three or four months five months on the mortality rate, and that's gone down as far as the age old question from from people on one side that worry about the damage to the economy and what that does the. People's lives and the other side. They point to that horrific number of two hundred and ten thousand but twenty to forty, nine year olds ninety, nine, point nine, eight, survival fifty to sixty, nine, ninety, nine, point five, and it would go over seventy to ninety four point six lot of co Morbidity. Is there a lot of things that that into that so? In, terms of of all the businesses that are going to be permanently gone all the jobs permanently lost all their lives permanently affected. It's going GonNa be an argument that we have not an argument, but it's going to be two sides.

They they were not fun to fly on. Now. I will say this is I mean is silly. I grew up in Oklahoma. And I moved to Minnesota about the age of twelve and I remember, saving all my money, all my money. Kevin when I was thirteen years old to fly from Minnesota back to also to visit my friends and the tickets VIN. We're more than they are now true story. So I have a big appreciation for south west because they have dramatically lowered the the cost of traveling everywhere. I mean, the the the prices of flying are so low now, I mean, it used to be something that only the elite. It could do. And now, it's very very affordable. Could you share with from your perspective looking at it and looking at all the data and spinning years researching about the impact you think southwest has made on just the mobility of the average American and the lowering the costs of flying. Yeah. It's one of the things that totally impressed this early on with them. And they you know, they they have really taken that whole cost structure low fares and are low cost to create row fares and made it a cause a noble heroic. 'cause and they would call it the business of freedom. And I'll tell you what that looks like when we were doing research for this. We had a twenty something year old rampage and probably didn't have more than a high school education. I don't remember exactly. But he said Kevin. We don't have statistical significance on this show on. He's looking at the research or right? He's statistical significance, but I can tell you on average that about one out of every seven or eight of these little Disney pull on bags that we put on a belt roader and load the plane comes from a child in a broken home in if we. We don't put these bags on the airplane on time. And we don't turn this airplane back in those days. It was ten minutes. Now, it's more like twenty five. We don't turn this airplane on time. That means that we're going to put more airplanes in the system, which means we're gonna have to find the money to pay for those airplanes, which is going to come out of ticket increases the cost and tickets, and that little boy or little girl is not gonna be able to fly between mom and dad who's geographically separated. And that's an affront to the business of freedom. And I thought my gosh, if the twenty year old rampage in gets it at that level, and they create a critical mass of employees who understand the movement and the cons behind the movement. That is their secret sauce. The that's a very powerful concept. Ten minute turn want to get it on a deep passionate level. That's one thing. That's that's getting a twenty year old employ to being gauge. Yeah. I mean, according to Gallup, they say what sixty seven percent of American employees are not engaged at work you the research. So to get somebody twelve years old to be engaged. That's that's powerful. But then to pull it off. Can you explain how the ten minute turn? I don't think maybe some of the listeners are familiar with that terminology..

I mean, what's the precedent has been set? And let's just say this that.

"Great don't even write anything. It's great. Finally, there's a woman at Texas is very upset about Southwest Airlines. And there's a lot of reasons to be upset of Southwest Airlines. If you've ever flown Southwest Airlines, but she is upset because the gate agent made fun of her daughter's name her daughter's name is ABC D E. Now, I will not make fun of a child's name because they did not pick their own name. But if you were a gate agent, could you say that name without kind of making fun of it? Yeah. I mean, look part of the deal there. I always think it's funny looks certain airlines like there's one airline in particular always tries to say everybody's last name, and you go like, why would you even put yourself through that kind of challenge, you know, about forty percent of if you're gonna have no shot on but the girl's name was obscenity. So it is a different name. I saw this on social media. I think there are plenty of times and social media. I'll see things where I go. Hey, you know, what that's getting me thinking about something different. I saw like twenty thousand retweets on this. You know, how many retweets it should've had zero. Okay. Now, you shouldn't make fun of a kid's name. But I didn't need the awareness factor here. This wasn't some outrageous social issue, someone buying a counter said something, maybe they shouldn't have said you overheard it, and that's fine. But you gave your kid your name. You gave your name. Hey, I have an e in the Ryan I've dealt with that my whole life people actually act like I did it and I go. Hey, yeah. And people are like people are like, oh, that's cooler at stupid. I'm like, you know, what it's crazy when you're born. Usually don't have a voice like you. Don't get the raise your hand and go, you know, what can we just? So to avoid confusion like people don't really want to hear from you minutes after your born. So I get the part where it's a mom who's upset. There's nothing you're more protective of than your kids. It's the fact that I don't have any. But this is not something that we need to have on the Ellen show. All right. This fish got a little bit too much play. It's very fair also app. City sounds like a place that charges through two hundred dollars a month to like work out. Yeah. I mean if I if I named my kid Thor. The Celtics are broken Gordon Hayward. It's been over a year since his injury. And he's still isn't right. Kyrie Irving had this to say about his team mate. He said, quote, honestly, I think that he's passing a little too much for Gordon's potential and his talent. I think coming up in the next few games. He'll be able to show some different things that he's been on for the start of the season just being more aggressive offensively. And looking for his shot more. We had practice yesterday. And I told him look for look for your shot. More get aggressive and get yourself going because you are great talent in this league. And I don't want you to forget that. Ryan russillo. What do you think about Kyrie's assessment of Gordon Hayward? He's right on man. I mean, Kyrie's really good with this stuff. And when I watched the Celtics the positive of their struggles is that I think they're really easy to see you see guys hesitate because I think really good players in the beginning of the season. Do this thing where they want to be unselfish? They wanna make sure that everybody's fitting in and they don't want to be the guy saying shots. But now this game is an aggressive game. And when you start to be playing it at a passive level when you're as good as a Hayward or sometimes even them, and I've seen it from Kyrie you really only hurting yourself in the team. So you can't have everybody out of control and all being aggressive and never passing anyone. But when I watched them, I see everyone kind of processing too much or thinking about how the other guys playing off of them. So Kyrie's one hundred percent on point here. The problem for Gordon, though, is that he's not now closing games. And he may be seeing less minutes because it's been such a slow start for him. So I don't know if that's part of it..
