"David Weston. We just talked to gene sperling from The White House about that possible rail strike coming up midnight on Friday. And now we turn to our Washington correspondent Anne Marie horde at The White House. So Anne Marie, does The White House have a plan for how to deal with this? Well, they're trying to come up with one and very quickly, right? Because as you say, David, they only have till Friday. And what we do know is that they're working on what emergency powers, The White House, the president can use and enact, to make sure that really critical materials like healthcare, materials, medicines, food, energy, to make sure chlorine so that waste water could be cleaned so that coal can go to utility plants that all of this can continue if there is going to be this bright railway worker strike because obviously this is a huge issue for the administration that spent a ton of time. Remember last summer, it almost felt like every other week that president was either visiting a port or sending more money or aid to a port to make sure they can unclog some of these supply chains. So this would be just another issue of the supply chain issue that would add to potentially these concerns on inflation, which for the president is top of mind today, not only because he's going to have this with gene sperling called a celebration for the inflation reduction act at 3 p.m., but also the fact that it came in worse than what was expected. On the rail strike specifically, The White House may have to deal with the aftermath, but what about avoiding it all together? Marty Walsh at labor, what's going on across town? Yeah, they are. They have been in contact with everyone involved at the negotiation. That's what they would prefer, of course. So what they're doing at The White House is coming up with contingency plans if they don't get to that point, but what would they would like to see is that all of this be done by Friday? And now a number of unions were able to strike agreements, but there's really two at this moment that they are honing in on. So what the administration is hoping for, plan a would be that this gets wrapped up in terms of negotiations by Friday, but if that doesn't happen, they want to make sure they have a plan for plan B, which is to make sure that all these critical materials can get moved around the country. Yeah, just one quick one at the end here. If you've ever been involved in the labor negotiation, it always goes to the 11th hour of 59th minute. Is that the sense that The White House that this is going to get done or are they anxious? I would say the fact that they are coming out these contingency plans and, you know, we were able to report about them as well as some other outlets that there are probably is some sense of nervousness, but it's a good point, David. Everyone does realize that this is a huge tactic in terms of negotiation, waiting for that 11th hour. Yeah, I've done that a couple of times in my life. Thank you so much to Bloomberg's Washington course by Anne Marie horde

"Six president biden and congressional democrats want to extend the child tax credit expansion through twenty twenty five on sunday democratic. Senator joe manchin was asked about making it permanent do support making it permanent wash poor child tax credits shoreham trying since about this before you start saying this is going to be permanent this in that. Let's see how we're doing this. Make sure that we're getting into the right people. If a child tax credit you want to help the children and the parents. They're basically providing for their children. There's no work requirements whatsoever. there's no education requirements whatsoever. Better skill sets. Don't you think we're going to help. The children to people should make some effort joining us. Now is gene sperling white house coordinator for the american rescue plan gene. What's your response to what we just heard senator mansion say. Well listen. I think that in the long run it's going to be a tough negotiation as lawrence. You and i have been through together and ninety three other times. But i think we'll get there and i think the reason why is there will. There is a shared value here. If you look at this bill back better plan overall. It is so much about reinstating or tax fairness Making sure commies working four working families and that is giving the type of support that allows working families to work and raise their children with dignity now in terms of the issues that That senator manchin is raising. Who have great respect for We think when you look look at it we will all agree that it is getting to the children that that we want to do. First of all ninety seven percent of the children who receive the child tax credit ninety seven percent are in working families. That's number one number two many of those three percent who aren't are facing a disability and excessive health care challenge or disability challenge or excessive care for parents or children so we think it it is getting to the children we need our already seen that You know middle class families are overwhelmingly using this for back to school. Clothes for helping with dental costs for Paying down credit card debt but for lower income families It's a big boost. It's it's it is projected over time to have a major impact and could have a permanent impact on reducing child. Poverty reducing child hunger. So i think that you know. There's gonna be negotiations. There always are but i think in the end. People are going to see that this child tax credit is a unique and powerful proposal. Very much like social security in that as the laura says. It is a lifeline for middle class families. But it can be a lifeline for children out of poverty when you get all of that and one policy that is a powerful policy and if republicans oppose that then they're going to be supporting raising taxes on all of those working middle class families and making it that much harder for them to meet the cost of raising their families and their children. So is it the administration's position that you want to extend it to twenty twenty-five or is to make permanent. Our budget proposal in this reconciliation is to extend it for years and years to twenty twenty-five but our ultimate goal president biden's ultimate goal is that people will say that this does work that it is a major boom for middle economic security and for reducing child poverty so our ultimate goal is unquestionably that this will be a permanent part eventually will be a permanent part of our economic policy and in doing so it will be as president by says making sure that we're offering tax relief. That's helping hardworking. Middle class families meet the cost of raising their children and at the same time reflecting value deep for many of us and certainly president biden that every child deserves the basics in life. They deserve a chance to move up. And we've seen that. This people estimate the child tax credit alone could have a permanent decrease in child poverty by thirty five forty percent. Just that one policy alone. So i think this is a policy. We wanna get A extended for for several years now and that ultimately made a permanent part of our of our economic policy. And i think it will be an enormous leap positive legacy for all of the advocates. All of the senators And president biden himself in what they did during their time in twenty twenty one to make life better for hardworking families in our country. And how is it paid for in this reconciliation bill. Well this this important point you know a lot of people are like. Oh my god. This thing you know cost a lot or you know. We'll the re cost for inflation. You know lawrence it's funny discussion. i think normally when we've seen a budget plan you look at. What are the net cost. How much does it cost overall. This is a plan whether it's the child tax credit or the overall build back better on which has savings so the what it is is not that it's going to add cost or at cost to the deficit. It's about what budgets and tax proposals always our priorities values. Who you're fighting for this proposal. Es does ask our wealthiest Americans and corporations many of them who pays zero taxes on huge profits to pay their fair share in doing so the extra cost of having this child tax credit which is thirty six hundred dollars..

People were just roaming everywhere. There were no real rules. People would come in and out things where you know, you obviously had to be quiet on the set when the cameras were rolling, but there was a lot of activity at all times. And what they've done is really shut that down and they've limited the number of people who could be on the set to just the crucial key cast and crew who needs to make the actual shot work. In addition to that, in order to actually make a production successful They had to quarantine all the people that we're gonna be on camera with each other prior to getting there because They're obviously going to interact without masks on right, so they have to do they have to quarantine him ahead of time. They're testing them, the cast and the crew members three times a week. I mean, it's pretty intense to get something of this scale back up and running. Nicole. My assumption here would be that with all these different precautions and new Ah, you know new ways of kind of handling this. It probably ads cost to these films. Is that fair to say, And do we know what the additional cost ends up being? It's definitely fair to say so. The production that we focus on is Jurassic World Dominion, which is the third movie and they're rebooted Jurassic World franchise, and so it's a huge production. Already the cost of Teepee and the additional testing and the cleaning of the sets and the additional crew members that are cleaning the said all that stuff. They've attributed that number to about $5 million. And then if you add in the fact that they rented out an entire hotel kind of sequester The cast and the key crew members. It was a 40 to 50 Grand Hotel. They had to do so for a good 20 weeks very long period of time that put the whole cost of the covert precautions which they threw the hotel into at about $9 million. These productions that are ongoing, then that have additional costs because of Cove it on the front end. Are they also changing release dates on the back in to try to be available to time when they can make those up through, you know, wide availability and theaters and things like that. Well for Jurassic world. It's set for June 2021. I think everyone is crossing their fingers that by then All theaters will be open and all will be back to business as usual. I mean, we've obviously seen a huge change in the calendar 20 funny with most of the big movies moving into 2021 because of the fear that They won't be opening their theatres. Although we are Beginning at the end of this month. We will start to see that reopening begin. Hopefully it will stick we don't know is if cases keep going up if that will be the case, but I know that the theater's air Very anxious to get back up and running. Nicole, Have you seen any cases where either for movies or for TV productions are directors and writers changing anything to account for the fact that Cove it is now president. We're going to see actors and actresses in masks, actually, or is it still a were this never happened? And we're sticking with what was going on before. Well, I think it's A case by case basis. I mean, we've seen some productions announced that they're going to be making shows that you know, take place in a zoom world and address Cove it head on. But for something like Jurassic World, which is a fantasy and Well, the dinosaurs roaming on the earth with us. They're not going to be throwing any masks out there. You won't be seeing any Loved actors interacting with with dinosaurs, So we're not going to be seeing Raptor and 90. Five's is what you're telling me. Yeah. Wouldn't that be so depressing? Let's escape for a minute. From what we're dealing with reality. Nicole. Thanks for joining us. We appreciate you coming on and thanks again for putting this article together. Thanks for having me appreciate it cures with with both of you in terms of, you know, movie theaters. I know Tucker. We've talked an awful lot about the Christopher Nolan production Tenet, which has been delayed What, like five times Now. I think there's some more of that ballpark right around. Do we have a really stayed on that? Nope. Okay. When? At what point? Do the two of you say? I'm comfortable going into a full movie theater again. Full, full, full movie theater when they've got the vaccine. That's kind of where I am on that it's not a big I mean, I wasn't a movie theatergoer before all this Now, if they're doing like 25% capacity, and the movie's out, and I want to take my kids to Yeah, I probably get comfortable with that, depending on the safety precautions, so I think it's just a matter of Candies. Movie theaters make any money at these levels. My the big question is Once the vaccine does come out, right, and people do return back to theaters. How many months are we goingto have just no big movies coming out? Raise all these filming. What ways are going to be serious? They're going really add up. I actually don't think it's going to be as big a problem As you say it is. Because there's so many movies already done, and in the can. That is. I mean, we just talked about tenants. You know, top gun is still lingering out there sure are plenty stolen the horizon. Did you see, by the way along these lines what AMC is going to be doing for their reopening now, so they're planning on reopening now, a week from today on August 20th They're going to adjust and what they're going to be doing. I think it's in all the theatres that they're going to be reopening, and I think it's a limited, you know, scale. It's only gonna be 100 theaters, but they're going to be charging for tickets. The price from 100 years ago in 1920 15 cents a ticket. I still won't go. No, no shot. You know, I found that interesting. Yeah, I won't go everything they can, but it's I found it interesting. They're doing that. They're also after that, So that's only for one day afterwards. They are going to be doing what I thought would be a fantastic thing, which is like a lot of these movies that you know are 10 2030 years old. Put him back on the big screen for people didn't get the chance to see them then. On a big screen, actually, so they've got empire strikes back that they're going to be having back to the future. Black Panther. Inception theory Journal Ghostbusters, So I think something like that's kind of cool and granted. I'm probably not going right now, but I think that's a fantastic idea. Hey, yeah, five bucks to go and see this sure, like.

"You must remember it as well. I certainly do It was an example of of rigorous opinion where there was division on the economic team and Ron Bloom and Brian decent. I the three of US kind of bill. They were running the auto task force. And they with me were were among Lee champions for the idea. We should save Chrysler and so we divided up the arguments that we were going to say to President Obama when my turn came. I said that you know this could be like the manufacturing equivalent of Lehman Brothers that it could be a downward cycle. That would what I knew would take not just the Chrysler with it but the supply but all the suppliers all the people created businesses. Their whole lives all the people who relied on them and it could be a downward spiral that we could never recover from. And you know I mean again you know I do have that that elevated view of public service because you know it was frustrating times but when you had a moment to affect the president night states on decision like that when I had moments where I could win the fight for expanding the IDC with President Clinton or Win The fight with President Obama of extending emergency unemployment insurance for another year. Those are those moments where you realize that you being there. You're passion and working together. You may have made millions of people's lives better and I do think that whether it's the fake west wing or the real west wing. I think that is what we all live for. Thank you most of the people I've worked with. What they that's what they're their aspirations. Were it was in some form? Their vision of economic justice of being able to say they made a difference. Would you go in again? I have a more complicated family. The situation with my wife Doing so well out here and my daughter in school but you know never say never because I think that that type of public service again you know. Sometimes when you're when you're in those type of jobs you know maybe you're fighting for head start funding and you win the fight and you think wow that was just one day and three hundred million dollars. Morris going to go to poor children's education and I have to admit you can write a lot of op eds That will never do. Sometimes the good you can do one really good day of advocacy and a White House. Well listen I wept. I wept the night. The affordable care act passed a wept as the father of a child who has a chronic illness epilepsy and we almost went bankrupt and In it because of it when I was a young reporter and just thinking about the families who wouldn't have to go through what we went through because of that law was overwhelming and it made it very. It made it very real. They're also gene does days that are not That good were you were you were. You're facing really really tough. decisions You know one one and you involved in these discussions about the had a keep the financial system running and still exact some penalty from those who at act irresponsibly during the run-up to the financial crisis. And there's still debates now about well why why aren't more people prosecuted. Why didn't more people pay a price? I'm sure you get those questions all the time and I have a lot of sympathy for them. Obviously you and I don't you know didn't didn't have and shouldn't have had any control over what was done in the Justice Department but it was hard we knew it at the time. We knew you were somewhat had to stabilize the guilty and unlike right now you did not have Republicans who were willing to work with you when I see right now. Democrats willing to give trillions of dollars To to help save this economy. They're not worried. Who's in the White House? I think of what could have been done if we had had that kind of willingness of the other side to put politics aside and give the economic power so that we could have gotten another trillion dollars instead of having everybody watching over our shoulders on every penny that we were spending and I think everybody there is amiss understanding the in. I saw just the other day. Someone saying well you know they were. They wanted to get Republican votes. So they didn't have a bigger recovery. Act Actually it was Democratic Votes. That were holding things up. There were Democrats who insisted on A smaller Package back then And you need sixty votes in the Senate but be that as it may. Do I remember you guys particularly Secretary Geithner Larry Summers and many others arguing about the importance of getting those deficits down of the deficits being I guess the formula was three percent of of GDP that became sort of Orthodoxy and We're facing a situation now where we're entering a self imposed almost second grade depression And the money is going out the door two and a half trillion already three trillion in this. How should people think about deficits in this context? Right now I think that there has probably never been a case stronger for not worrying about deficits at all in responding to this crisis. I think that The world has really changed in the last Seven eight years. We have seen the ability for deficits to go up with a with interest rates not rising and now if you right now the always should care about is how we keep our economy whole. These are one time huge amounts of money that will do. If we don't do them we will. have a longer recession or depression. That will be worse fiscal but even greater than that will be worse for our humanity. Our economic dignity. How well we take care of people and I think you've seen The Federal Reserve chairman almost really encouraging speaker. Pelosi to go bid that you can borrow a huge amount right now at the lowest interest rates so things like deficits people shouldn't be four deficit reduction or against US reduction. They should look at the the economic times. I think ninety three a mattered. I think right now it should be zero focus. I think that We probably thought it mattered. More than it did. Of course the time that we were doing that deficits were ten percent and there was an overwhelming political emphasis to do something but I think that we have learned right now. That is not having the impact the people thought and as Kane said when you see different information you ought to change and right now there has never been a stronger case for doing whatever is.

"But you know I used to read all Clinton's speeches and there were things I did start to really admire. Which is that. He knew how to speak. He knew to do policy in value based way he would talk about these values community responsibility opportunity and then he would use policies like national to support them and what I really found was that he was quite liberal quite progressive but he but at that time David. It's hard to describe to people after twelve years of Republican rule. You really wondered whether we'd ever have a Democratic White House and you know the sense that there was someone who had a bit of a strategy a plan And he was quite good. I think ultimately at bringing the whole Democratic Party with them so you know I think that for the moment and the Times he really did help bring Democrats back to the White House. We wouldn't have had justice GINSBURG and Stephen Brier without them and it was very important but yes it was tough but when I first joined the campaign And really my first year. I mean you know. I was always looked a little bit as the old Democrat big spender and was often Bob Rice. Shen George Stephanopoulos and I arguing you know at times to focus less on the deficit and invest more But you know Clinton liked that tension. He he believed the so much public investment that that I never really felt that were decisions made during eight years six of those when you all Republican Congress which. I didn't always agree with but I always felt he had a very very progressive heart. Still do it's interesting to hear you talk about this because one of the things that people And you we should point out you. I worthy deputy director of the National Economic Council. During the first years of the Clinton administration and ultimately you became the director of the National Economic Council and very much involved in negotiating with the Congress of and by the time. You've got to the to the NEC with a Republican Congress over these economic issues but the the critique of Clinton and by Extension. You is that you were very politically. Agile politically adroit. Some people call it a compliment. But what was meant by was you. Did you know incremental things that you and Clinton's Clinton's address to Congress his State of the Union address in which he said. The era of big government is over and everybody interpreted that as a dagger through the heart of progressivism. And so on. I I wanted to ask you about that because good things came out of all of these negotiations that you're involved in but they involve compromise and Talk a little bit about governance. And what progress requires yeah? You know you know. It's interesting one of the reasons I write a book. Like economic dignity is. I wanted to keep people's eye on the ball because I do think David that a lot of times we go back and we debate. Was something a right or wrong decision when a lot of times. It's so constrained by the political constraints the control of Congress. And you can kind of believe that what you doing was the best thing you can do at the time and still believe with new information and evolving trends. There's a better way and you know for me We came in at a time when the deficit was like the number one issue in the country on both sides. And you know President Clinton brought down in a way that was quite progressive just to give example of something on the income tax credit. And this isn't just him but he won that battle. He won that battle for the value. That if you work full time you shouldn't have to raise your children with poverty. And He. He won the battle that that wasn't welfare that that was a tax incentive that was helping people work and that helped pass the torch to Pelosi and ultimately Obama if you look right now today a single parent with two kids making seventeen thousand gets an extra seven thousand dollars. That's a huge change. It was done more by you. Know fighting in the trenches Clinton loses a lot his power because he goes for a very very progressive healthcare plan that was disruptive than the first year the first two years so you know Bill Clinton was out there somewhat loss control because in in some ways He was seen as going too far. I wish we had done it better but I think that when we were there. I wish he hadn't said the era of big government was over but remember what happened. The Republicans had just taken control seventy eight months later. He shuts down the government rhetoric. Rather than block grant Medicaid. Cut Medicare back the block. Grant food stamps. He stands up and actually protects the great society programs. So you look over eight years you looking at six years. We went six years with all Republican Congress. Nonetheless new markets tax credit the chip program that provided universal healthcare For Children A. He was ahead on Kyoto. Climate change when the rest of the Democrats in Congress were behind him. So you know you were dealing with the constraints at the time. I do think that said there are a lot of things that we learned sense than that you would do differently. You've seen that during the next decade. The era of globalisation led to a complete I think weakening of worker power domination of economic concentration. And whether or not Bill Clinton should've sense that in nineteen ninety seven or not. We can have a debate about but I would take progressive since when we can all see. Were in the same place now. Let's joined let's unify. Let's agree where we can agree instead of you know re-litigating every.

Concepts of a Psychedelic Trip P. 2
"All right. Welcome to the dirt show. I'm higher peaks Innocent Lady Sativa and welcome to part two of components of a psychedelic trip. I hope you enjoyed the first part. Like I said before. We're GONNA go into some really crazy stuff now. Last time we finished off with geometry Which is my favorite and I think that the eight levels kind of explains in eight B. I guess nine levels nine said nine eight plus but yeah I? I think that explains kind of the profound part of the trip. Which is I feel like the most important. But this time we're going to start off with actually fractionals. That's another common component in this visual geometry. These are a concept that exists within mathematics and can be described as complex patterns that repeat infinitely into themselves allowing for the same self similar image to be found no matter how far you zoom into any of the image. I think most commonly. That's what I see the geometry that I see as fractionals if you look that up online Google images. Those are pretty similar. Now good but really creepy is about an hour ago. I opened my phone and I was on a Frac Dole geometry page and I don't know how it got there. Is that not creepy? Yeah see there watching and listening always you know but hopefully maybe they'll raise our our stats right all right. All right specialties in law enforcement out there you know we hope you're inflating our stats for us. We appreciate it. Good looking out to your friends but fractionals. Yaffe look those up and actually I just want to make a point here. I hope I do. Not messes word up. But I believe it's ship bows ship. He Bows Arch Abell Shiva. Bows that the first one if you look that up that is there's I bleeding. It's an Amazon try or it's a tribal group that has been known to use. Iowa for a long time not like Amazon. Like you go online and buy something like actual Amazon guys. Maybe I don't quote me on that. I know you've been stuck inside for a long time but there's other things called like the Amazon. This is this is not mail order. I O Oscar right but if you look that up on Google that art diffraction images that kind of artwork is almost dead on so if you looked at At sperling cool too yeah and those tribes. They are Like I said well known for a long long long time of doing Iowa and they have. That's their artwork. And so it but if you look at it they've really kind of nailed it how it looks. Yeah good examples there. They had good notebooks in their head in their head. And I guess the stick in a piece of wood. I don't know I don't know. Yeah all right. A hallucinatory state. The fourth century effect is perhaps the most profound subjective sensory effect that the psychedelic experience has to offer there manifested as two distinct affects which come in a variety of different intensities external hallucinations. Right which we know. That self explanatory internal hallucinations. Which again is a self explanatory? Well it's closed. I think it's open Iverson's closed is where we're getting at here Maybe why I didn't put the definitions in. But maybe internal like I could see like I was building an insane asylum with my eyes open staring at something. Yeah so I still building stuff but my eyes were opened. I will see it. That's why I said it was at the ocean. Because the glow stick I was going back and forth and staring at anyways Enron experience. Yep exactly transforming hallucinations internal external the and the transforming hallucinations. Remember are things changing shape from one thing to another so it could be from a solid object to geometry or could be you know from solid object to another solid object But that could be both internal and external and I don't know but a lot of times they separate the transforming part from the other hallucinations right and I don't know why other than the fact that it's maybe it's more of a true hallucination in the sense that you can something can change into something else. That's real like a table. Could turn into a chair. Say Yeah Okay. Go ahead as these states of imagery become increasingly elaborate proportional to dosage of course They eventually become all encompassing full-fledged. Three D. Hallucinations which surround the person in fashion similar to dreams. This creates a feeling that one has broken through quote unquote into another reality. The things which occur within this perceived alternate reality can be anything but generally fall under common archetypes such as contact with Automata not automaton autonomen. I don't know what the fuck I was auto bought. It is not an Autobahn Thomas. Entities imagined landscapes and scenarios. That can seem so. Unlike anything previously experienced that they are in all probability untranslatable into English so in other words we wouldn't understand them. It would only be something. Our Mind could understand yen. Unfortunately I think a good portion of upper doses of psychedelics are like that even I cannot describe the geometry that I see does a really good job. But it doesn't you don't you don't really understand the complexity and just like your whole don't you don't understand imagery just like a book. Anybody who reads the book will get something different out of it. Everybody will picture a person in the book differently. Good analogy I'm sorry but here's a good example twilight to me. I don't think the characters matched up as the movies. So there we go. I me mentally. I thought of somebody completely different for everybody in there. It's just you know the way. The book explains something compared to what somebody else season their minds. I you can't make somebody see what you see. No you can't explain what you see to somebody exactly the way you see it. No imagination is so I mean that's just it. It's imagination. That could be anything. Some people have it. Some people don't And I think like what we're talking about. Here's what you've experienced you'd have to either be high doses of You know acid. Lsd Or say mushrooms. But you know like emt trip this will be common in regular EMT trip and the Thomas entities which we're GonNa get into seems to be really common with DMC and again all. These things are so abstract right but not only is the person who's under the influence comprehending it in their own way. I mean there's got to be so much influence on how they comprehend that vision. Yeah it'd be again like use like looking at a painting. What you see is going to be different than what I see Even though we're looking at the same colors in the same picture yeah. We're going to comprehend in two different ways. It might be pleasing to you and I think it's shit this is. This is so Gordon Ramsay shutout. The content of these experiences are often described to fill transcendental mystical spiritual and religious in nature regardless of the trippers theistic beliefs. And that's important to realize because it's saying that it basically supersedes anything that may have been there before The tripper demis each individual person. There you go. Yeah but also to like I had said in this geometry plus Dosages these are the transcendental so for a lot of people they might take an eighth and not necessarily hit that point epiphany of any sorts. They might not see an insane asylum like yes time. Yeah so that's you. My immunity was apparently a lot lower than because I cannot do that now. I can barely last time last time we did do it like actually solidly tried to do. It was when I was watching Harry Potter. And it took me until you were almost out of your trip in order to get into mine well again. That's the thing it's you can try to time things. It's it pissed me off and the only reason why you continue to trip is because I turned on Harry Potter. And you're like oh I just remember. You were tripping out next to me like the blanket all the way up to your chin staring at the TV. And I was all sitting up with the pillows in my arms crying because it was so cool. Yeah just because you're crying in the corner doesn't mean it's a bad trip.
Not Every New Habit Needs To Be For Life
"Welcome to day fifteen off the lock down here in Malaysia. And of course they fifteen of not shaving decided to get out of the house a little bit today down around the pool area in our apartment complex. We're not land in the pool but at least at this stage we're allowed outside so I thought I'd get a little bit of fresh air and that quote the idea that not every new habit needs to be for life is from a guy called Sam sperling now. Sam is a partner at the radio which is an organization. I've spoken to you about a few times. Before and it's the organization led by Aaron Digman. Who wrote the Book Brave New Work? And it's all about basically organizational change. That's what the radio is there. An organizational change consultancy. I guess and the interesting thing is when I spoke to Sam about that quote. He said he didn't really made it in the context of what we're going through today but the truth is of course. It's actually really relevant today for many people because a lot of us have been told that during these times of lockdowns isolation's and limited movement. You should stick your old routine. Stick your old habits as much as you can to maintain a sense of normality. So you get up at the same time. You have the same breakfast. You Shave every morning. You put on the same clothes. Sticky normal routes stick to your normal habits. But there's another school of thought. Of course which is why not try new habits because now is a great time to test those new habits out and maybe they might stick but maybe they don't. It doesn't really matter you don't have to stick to those new habits. You try so. It's actually a great time right now. I think to try out new habits
A Check-Up On California's Efforts To Combat Climate Change
"You A checkup now. On attempts to address Climate Change California is the fifth largest economy in the world. And it has some of the most aggressive climate policies in the country. It passed landmark law. Fourteen years ago to slash greenhouse gas emissions is also one of the first states to set a goal of going completely carbon neutral for many. California has been held up as a model but is it. Npr's Hannah Haeggman joins us now to take a closer look. Hi Hannah Halo all right. Let's tick through a couple of things look at energy. How is California doing so? The big emission cuts. We've seen there so far. Those have mostly come from getting off coal from two thousand four to two thousand. Six Cole was about twenty percent of the total electricity mix and in two thousand eighteen. It was only a little more than three percent. That's good yup. And that happened for a couple of reasons. California committed to this huge goal of getting greenhouse gas emissions below nineteen ninety levels. There was support from the Obama administration and wind and solar prices came way down. So because of all that Danny Colon word a researcher at Stanford Law School told me that. There's a clearer path to decarbonising electricity versus other industries. The technologies that cut the emissions are things we have and we know how to work with. That's installing solar plants. That's installing wind plants. That's putting battery energy storage systems and we have the right policies in tools to get it done and that's less true in some of the other sectors so energy good but he's mentioning these other sectors and I'm assuming one of those is transportation I'm thinking of electric cars. I Know California's done a lot. What's going on there? Actually over the last years vehicle emissions have inched up up. Yeah and that's because the number of people super commuting up to ninety minutes each way that's increase that's one part of the equation and another thing to a record number of Californians have cars about eighty out of every hundred all right. You mentioned commuting this week. It's all about telecommuting. People try to slow the spread of the corona virus. Yeah that's true and we don't know how long this will last but there's other issues at hand. I talked with Daniel sperling. He's a member of the California Air Resources Board about this thing. He called the Amazon prime effect What is that wanting more things delivered fast that means lots of trips from warehouses to neighborhoods and at the end of the day? That's meant an uptick in truck emissions. Which are the worst for the environment? So what about just putting people closer to work so that they don't have to supercomuter. Yeah that's easier said than done. And lawmakers have tried to address that by putting through various policies to build housing closer to city centers. They haven't been successful so far. Though there's also the question of people even really want to live in high rises and cities even if it does mean shorter commutes so kind of back to where we started Lou. The state is really pushing for people to buy more electric vehicles. Here's sperling we're kind of on the path. We just need to add a lot more urgency and move faster so California. Has this goal of getting five million zero emission vehicles on the road and ten years and in October of last year? There are about six hundred fifty five thousand of these cars on the road. Sperling has there are some state level incentives but there needs to be more to get more people to buy vs. Last thing is thirty to be a lot more charging infrastructure But if you put all these incentives in is that really enough to widely motivate Californians to buy vs yet Gets at the heart of the challenge. I talked to Havi Air Casinos. He's a native Californian and he commutes from Whittier California to Santa Ana about an hour and a half each way he drives a Honda. Civic that runs on natural gas he bought it a couple years ago to try and reduces impact but now the card doesn't meet the State's Clean Car Standards. He wants to buy a newer EV. But it's still too much for him at this point and he feels like people like him are being left behind Latinos and people of Color. We're the guys that drive all the way from east. La Too West La and we're not getting any love in terms of getting support to get in these cars so this is really about the environment which it's supposed to be about. Then why are you ostracizing your big majority of people that are on the road more than anyone else? So what's your big takeaway here when you look at? How a state like California? Which really has made this front and center is struggling so much. I mean with a state like California. They put up a lot of money to try and make these things happen at the same time. There's been a real slowdown a federal effort so now California's making progress to meet goals. But it might be going too slow that's NPR's Hannah Haeggman. Thank you so

"But off people okay and yes so but the idea that the trump administration has already failed it's already too late was hammered home again and again and again last night gene Sperling an economist he was on president Obama's economic team said look the president's address was disappointing I was so disappointed to see the president just looking like he was reading talking points instead of talking about how he's going to be paid sick leave an appointment that's going to help everybody care givers drivers gig economy workers domestic workers everybody cry so many people are going to be heard here and we need real confidence real credibility real mobilization and what he's saying is the president wasn't empathetic enough he didn't show that he cares enough unlike implicitly someone like Barack Obama who could feel the nation's pain unlike someone say like Bill Clinton who could feel the nation's pain and according to the idea also breast president trump didn't do enough to assuage concerns it was again failure in this idea that he wasn't warm and fuzzy enough that he wasn't empathetic enough was echoed by Frank brooding the context of that people need more than they got from the president tonight I mean let let's be grateful he did not flat out minimize the crisis which is done before he did not bash the media or bash Democrats and is a pretty low bar friend to clear he didn't do those things but I didn't hear in that speech that I didn't hear real empathy for what American support for the rest of the world is going through you see there wasn't enough empathy there wasn't enough feeling he may have done everything right technically but there's still a response that's lacking this was the sort of coverage that you just did not get a decade ago with the swine flu outbreak this was coverage that was designed to shake faith in the trump administration coverage that all night and really for the last several weeks coverage that has been designed to convince Americans that their government is incompetent and therefore incapable.

Whats driving the explosion in Lyme Disease in Canada?
"Today disease a complicated disease that we are having trouble testing for a disease. We never expected to see with any regularity in Canada only to realize perhaps too late. Maybe that was Donald. No this is not a new virus from across the world world. It's not some weird superbug. It's not particularly contagious illness. You probably don't think much about until it makes headlines because somebody famous something was wrong with Justin Bieber last year and we saw him with visas. Arm We we now know what was going on here. Justin Bieber has lime disease but it is a mistake to think of lyme disease as a rare illness because all of the data we have and we still don't have enough shows that it is exploding in Canada with numbers of confirmed cases spiking every year. Get One guess as to why but even that is not the key problem here what we need to figure out and fast is a comprehensive way to test for your dial and treat lyme disease because that's where we lag behind almost everybody else. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Janet sperling is a PhD candidate at the University of Alberta. She is also a board member number on the Canadian lyme Disease Foundation. Hello Janna why. Don't you just start I think all of us the term but maybe just explain what what lime disease is sure. Lime disease is one of the more complicated things you would hope that I should be able to say. Oh lime disease is You know a bacterial curiel owners and it's transmitted by tick but unfortunately when you peek under the covers it gets a little more complicated so if you go to the government of Canada website. And you'll see that lyme disease is Berea Bergdorf Ri- and you say Oh. Okay that's nice and easy I can follow what they're trying to say but now if we just step over the border a little bit to Minnesota and we look up the male clinic they say lyme disease is four main species of bacteria and then they list four types of Berea so now you know your head is spinning you say okay. Well what do they say in Europe so if we go due to Europe and we go for example to Germany we see lyme disease is caused by spy. Rookie Berea Bergdorf. Wry sense allow to which means it's a whole bunch of different Burrito So this is part of the reason that we're ending up with a really complicated answer to what ought not be a very simple question. Why do various countries disagree so much on precisely what it is? That's not the case with most of viruses or diseases. I assume right and I think this is one of the things when I first started like you know back in the nineteen eighties and I took my medical entomology. They said lime disease is a disease it happens in North America. It's transmitted by so I wrote that down on my exam tonight. Got One hundred percent and everybody said great and I said to myself boy. I'm caught. I live in Canada. 'cause I don't need to worry about lyme disease but the more we started to find out notable lime disease and the more we realized it is actually in Europe. It's been in Europe for a very very long time for example You know it sees the iceman man who was found You know he's Bronze Age. I think you know we back in a gleese your those fraud. He had evidence of lime disease. So we know you you know. We've had lyme disease around for a long time. People just didn't recognize it as lime disease so the more you look into it. The more you see that this is something that's called us a Nautica Kasese so it's found circulating in the wildlife and then he kinda jumps over to the people although the disease itself Rigas and aiming for are people so this isn't something like measles measles something that goes from one person to the other person. This is something that's circulating in. It's got Birds is involved in this cycle. It's got animals. You know deer mice all sorts of things so this is why it just becomes more and more complicated. The more you look at it and and of course as a person who's suffering from lung disease you really don't care about all that background just saying I'm sick. Just get better and that advantage of being a bacteria tirrenia is that means we can use antibiotics so I think previously people were being treated for lyme disease without even actually recognizing was lime disease. assise they had antibiotics for some other reasons. They got better. Everybody said okay. I don't know what it was but they're better now. We're very concerned that we want want to make sure that we don't over use the antibiotics so that ends up making it even more complicated so we have the people we know they're sick. We know that got got bit by a tick. We know that something is wrong so some of the doctors are saying okay. We'll give them the antibiotic conceive to get better so those people all say. I think it's lyme disease and other people say I don't think it was on disease at all. It was something else it was transmitted by tick. But it wasn't lime disease so now we've taken a really complicated problem and we've really muddied the waters. We have people who say I have lime disease and other people who say whatever it was. It wasn't lime disease but I'm glad they got better so if the waters are so muddy and to your point the description you gave about learning about lyme disease in the eighties was precisely as much much as I knew about. LYME disease period Why are we discussing it so much more frequently right now? Are we seeing spike. Absolutely and I think it's certainly only with the global climate change we're getting the tick has expanded its range so you know back in the nineteen eighties. Certainly ticks. Albertus stopped about sort of middle. The problems you didn't have to go very far. Well now. They're all the way out into the Yukon. So this is something that's changed. It's it's new. I think we've always had you know a a couple of topics here and there and the other place but now it's much bigger. We know that most Canadians live right along the US border so we know most of our population is sort of super at risk as the ticks start moving north. Do we have a sense of how quickly the problem is getting worse like. Do you guys have have numbers on no matter how quickly the number of cases arising well we don't we don't have numbers because the numbers are set to be very very specific to Berea Maria br door fry and then it's particular string thirty one that somebody described in Boston Massachusetts lyme Connecticut down in that end so for Canada. It's kind of difficult to say can say you know if you're looking very strictly for one type of Lyme disease we know that the numbers have increased hugely sleep but we also know it would be kind of unlikely that we're just Columbia would have exactly the same type of lime disease as Boston Massachusetts. You know there's a latta kilometers in between the two and then also There's huge mountain range and then to make at one stage more complicated the even have different species of tick so this is where people get annoyed because they say I'm sick. I think I have lime disease because you treated me as though I have lime disease but still it's been denied as being lined disease or even anything like lyme disease. Why don't we have a simple test that can categorize it as one of what may be many kinds of lyme disease for instance right? Well we do if your dog so if your dog your jet can in Cohen tests the dog and say okay you have a sick dog. The dog is Being picked up to have this general sense of this says lyme disease lyme Berea of some sort so your vet will probably just treat your dog and say I'm calling lime disease good enough for me taking antibiotics and get better. Okay but humans but humans don't have exactly the same immune response so a dog has a much stronger immune response so it makes it easier when you're a VAT and and also with the humans. People are so readable antibiotics that you have to absolutely meal the diagnosis before they're willing to give you the antibiotics in the first place and that makes sense because we have talked on this podcast in the past about the need to not use antibiotics. Unless it's serious I guess what's flung meal. A little bit is that this can be a disease. That's it's on the rise that's diagnosed in many places around the world and they're still not the same kind of credible test that can determine like okay. You need antibiotics. Let's go right and I think partly it's because it circulates among birds. It circulates among various little mice and small rooms all the way up to deer and that each one of these animals. This part of this really complicated cycle the deer can actually clear the infection so for example if I had a tick and I knew that that had most recently fed on a bird I would be quite worried or if I knew had most recently said on a most but if I knew knew that the last thing that tick fed on was a dear I wouldn't be very worried at all I would say. Oh okay. Fortunately that's very low risk from that particular tech so this is where I think people especially if your doctor and you've got somebody and they have very nonspecific symptoms because that's one of the problems. There's nothing that's really obviously. This is exactly lime disease. You know you can't stand the front of the room and say okay. People have lime disease and these people don't have lime disease so oh you look people. They've got these nonspecific symptoms. And you're saying I know they're sick but I just don't know what it is. We're going to start looking at a lot of different things. So there's this a big list of differential diagnoses. You need to go through. And then when it gets the bottom of the list you always have lime disease. And that's something that was missed for for many many decades and for example I live in Alberta. And we're still told. Oh you can't have lime disease because you live in Berta but the silly thing is to people travel awful and when people are traveling. It doesn't matter where I live. Where my house addresses if I live in Alberta maybe got it in California maybe I got it in Toronto? Well in speaking of California you probably knew at some point in this interview. I was going to mention Justin Bieber. Indeed and it gets back to kind of the problem that you're describing reading because when celebrities like that come out and announced that they've been battling lyme disease it often seems like he has the best medical care in the world right. He compay millions of dollars for the very best doctors and yet still People were worrying about him for months before he came forward. Exactly and that's I think it's actually shiver common story and if you were to take your average Canadian. Generally they're healthy people. They're living their lives eating wells sleeping well plenty of exercise and and then suddenly something happens. They get sick and they don't even necessarily associated with tick bite and especially in a place where you're not expecting to run into ticks like downtown Toronto. You might not think about it and as you get. sicker and sicker and sicker. Lime disease isn't even on the radar so it takes long time to figure out what it is and the problem with lyme disease is if you catch it early. It's very easy to treat. Take your antibiotics into the story. But if you don't catch catch it and it goes on for a long time like weeks or months or sometimes even years. It's really hard to treat people were saying and this is why I wanted to ask you about like how it presents. How the disease presents because people were saying that it looked like Justin had lapsed and that he was an addict and that he was really struggling with substance abuse? Right you and and I think that that's actually remarkably common and a lot of people find that obviously really hurtful and you can certainly understand and why if you've been
Netflix and Theater Owners Go To The Mattresses Over Scorsese's Irishman
"Welcome to the frame and Stephen cliff us filling in for John horn Martin Scorsese's highly awaited mob boss drama the Irishman hits theaters today well you know what is the situation going on now for big business and the government they're trying to pull us down you might be demonstrating the failure to show appreciation seems the the Netflix film stars Robert deniro Al Pacino and Joe Pesci but seeing the three and a half hour long at beginning theater will take some effort Scorsese had hoped for a wide release but after negotiations stalled between Netflix and movie theater owners the film will only be seen in eight theaters in New York and Los Angeles before heading to the streaming service on November twenty seventh Nicole Sperling is media reporter for The New York Times covering Hollywood and streaming and she has the backstory on how things fell apart hi Nicole hi how are you Steve good good Nicole good you first please explain what theater owners were hoping for in terms of the Irishman's release I mean I think with what theater owners were hoping for was that Netflix was going to get in line and follow the rules that the traditional studios have with the theater chains and you know that is asking a lot for a company that doesn't necessarily believe in a theatrical window that is a subscriber first company that wants to make their subscribers happy by bringing them their content as soon as possible so what they wanted them to do was agreed to a seventy two day release which means that not necessarily the movie would play in theaters for seventy two days but that there would be an exclusivity period for that long before they would put it on their streaming service and that's really asking a lot for a company like Netflix I mean what ideally what Netflix like to see I mean no theatrical release at all no I mean I think Netflix is coming around to the idea of some limited theatrical release some of their consumers want to go see their movies on the big screen in a Martin scorcese gangster movie seems to fall into that category but they don't spend a lot on marketing so what happens in the traditional studio model is you have to put your movie into theaters you have to spend you know thirty five million dollars at least on a wide release to get people attention so they will know it's in theaters to go see it and then if you have to wait these seventy two to ninety days that are required by the theater chains when it does hit the next window whether that's a streaming platform or pay TV or whatever it is often times studios have to pay again to market the movie so it's really a lot of money but it also there is a requirement for Oscars is you have to have a movie in a theater for a week to be eligible that is part of the rules well after the Irishman start streaming on Netflix on November twenty seventh will there be the option for theater chains to give it a more wider release and and show it in theaters then for for those of us who may want to have that cinematic experience Netflix will keep it in theaters once it opens on their service as long as the chains want to keep it in it's just a limited number of theater chains that will play the movie the big giants AMC regal Cinemark those are the guys who are refusing to play by Netflix's rules which are much more truncated release windows and they're accustomed to Nicole Sperling is media reporter for The New York Times covering Hollywood and streaming with Irishman showing now at the Belasco in New York and the Egyptian here in Los Angeles before expanding to a handful of others what can you tell us about why those specific theaters were selected as far as the Belasco that's a Broadway theater that shows Broadway plays this is actually one of the first times that a movie is going to be debuting in that theater and it's kind of terrific in a sense that like it's a big palace in there it has a thousand seats in it it makes you feel like you're in this you know old timey kind of environment there's not a lot of single screens left in New York City so they're kind of recreating the old time Hollywood feel on that screen as for the Egyptian in Los Angeles that theater is currently owned by American Cinematheque it's a his work location but Netflix is actually in the process of trying to buy that theater it's an independent movie house they want to own it so that on week nights they can put their movies in and have a vents and do whatever they want and then on the weekends American Cinematheque would still program their films as they see fit and they're kind of retrospectives and the repertory theatre that they are well fear owners were trying to make the case to Netflix that you know if you truncate the theatrical release you're gonna lose out how much money are are are we talking about potentially well they use the departed as their example which was Scorsese's two thousand six movie and that made three hundred million dollars worldwide now the studio doesn't get all three hundred million dollars they split that evenly with the theaters and then when you add in marketing costs it goes lower than that as well but there's still a you know a significant profit that could be made it's a could be because it's also a three and a half hour movie so how many people are going to be rushing to the theater to see it I mean the film has received rapturous reviews critics are loving it so that interest to see I think is high but there's also the risk factor that's involved too and I think Netflix has been less interested in getting involved in that business because it is so risky and it's much safer to put it on your service and then a month from now tell everybody how many people and watched it right there were similar release negotiations last year over the theatrical run of another major Netflix project and that's all fine so quite owns Roma can you remind us how that agreement check out and how it may or may not have influenced how this deal over the Irishman was hammered out it was the same kind of situation where the big chains refused to play at the smaller ones the landmarks the Alamo they played the movie and for some of those theater chains the movie did really well for them and it stayed in theaters for a long time well as streaming giants become more powerful in the big budget feature film industry will movie theaters become secondary venues you know for special films well it depends on who you're talking to I mean at this moment in time Disney who is you know launching their service in two weeks is a huge proponent of the theatrical window probably most of the movies that you went and saw most of Americans when Sonya last year were Disney movies whether they came from Pixar or Lucasfilm or Marvel those are the movies that make a ton of money at the box office and they stay in theaters for a very long time so Disney is a big fan of the of the theatrical window now how that changes we'll see there also putting a lot of money behind their Disney plus service so that needs to work out really well for them as well and who knows if product will be shifting to the service and hopes to you know bolster their subscriber numbers a lot of the streamers are backed by a traditional studios so they're gonna have to figure that out as it may go forward Nicole Sperling is media reporter for The New York Times covering Hollywood hand streaming the call thanks is a is a pleasure thank you for your time I appreciate
Nike, ServiceNow and SAP CEOs play a game of musical chairs
"Soon because Tuesday morning under armor announced Kevin Plank is stepping down as CEO in January and then later in the day on Tuesday sort of late after a new Nike announced that CEO Mark Parker also stepping down in January he's going to be replaced by John Donahoe who is a Ward member at Nike he is also the CEO of Software Company called service now so he'll be he's been CEO there for nearly three years he's going to be leaving and and Bill McDermott who a couple of weeks ago stepped down or was forced out depending on which version of events you decide to believe he left sap after being CEO for nearly a decade he's now going to be the CEO service now so the musical chairs continuous. Let's let's start with Nike and shares down a little bit on the news and probably not a surprise when you consider Parker's been running this company since two thousand six and if you're a shareholder her under his tenure you have done very very well Oh yeah you're you're quite happy so parker was the second CEO at at Nike following tonight and he took over in two thousand six but there's probably been some I know there have been rumors at least that CEO succession at Nike is Being Thought About for instance three years ago after China chief Michael Sperling was promoted to President Product Marketing and that was his fifth promotion in ninety here so he's moving up the ranks pretty quickly people were wondering Oh is he being groomed as as the next successor but there was also C. C. O. exp Bronx and Brand President Trevor Edwards and the latter man gentleman especially with seen as as the primary contender but then a couple of years ago Edwards was forced out in March of two thousand eighteen amid amid allegations of inappropriate behavior and will leave it at that so Parker's a comment yes Yesterday during an interview that hey this has been months in the planning you don't do this just a couple of weeks is probably true but I'm I'm kind of wondering what the timing has to do with I mean under armor announces a plank stepping down and he says Oh maybe we want to get on that news to or is it more related to the drug doping thing that's I've been coming out and whether Parker knew about it or not and the speculation there or is it just hey today just happen to be the same day that all this other stuff was coming up yeah and and the drug doping thing that you mentioned that's a relief to Alberta Salazar coach ty did Nike over the last few weeks some stories have come out about that and then and then and the extent to which Parker knew about that so some some questions around that I find the timing fascinating because I just thought there's no way or you're going to have a very our time convincing me that this is a coincidence I mean all things being equal because Nike has been the clear leader in the category for so long and even plank has been very clear in his time at under armor you know running the company he was gunning for Nike the whole time right in most situations I would believe that under armor maybe got wind of this and they moved up their announcement and actually think in this situation I think it's the reverse I think that Nike may have just decided you know what we're gonNA announce this later this week or maybe we're we're going to tie to our earnings report you know what let's just do this right now so maybe when plank says okay I'm out in Percocet yes score column win column there we go so let's talk about Donohoe for a second I don't know a ton about him what I do We know is that his experience as an executive is very much in the tech space as I may have service now software company he was an executive at Ebay who is the CEO of EIB. Yeah the chief executive for years and made a bunch of acquisitions onto there so I think if you are a Nike shareholder again it's only down a couple of percentage points I don't think that's necessarily a knock on Donohoe I think that's more just Parker's done such a great job it's it's it's natural to see a trump a little bit but I think if you're if you're looking at the elevations donohoe it's it's with an eye towards his tech experience and Nike increasingly relying on technology to move product right and and and I think again the narrative is that that's why the White was named he has been a director for a couple of years at Nike who was the CEO of Ebay for seven eight years until Twenty fifteen is been the chairman pal he oversaw the spinoff of pay pal from Ebay but that was kind of forced upon him and Ebay by Carl ICAHN activision activision active what what's the word activism activism thank you but he's expected to come into Nike and use his tech savvy to probably continue the digital transformation that has really been driving some good results for Nike They've got their Nike plus membership they're getting being able to get more personalized in their advertising for that and they're seeing some big up responses to that and along with that awesome product tracking and inventory management a lot a lot of good things are happening with Nike from a Tech Perspective and I think Donna who's GonNa continue that maybe a better indicator Keke shareholders is what's happening with shares of service now because that's down about ten percent since it was announced go the donnas leaving let's move on to another great quarter for AAA same store sales such a crucial metric for any restaurant out there up eleven percent rent nearly two percentage points higher than expected the stock is down close to five percent today is that just because of the run that it has had to this point because it's been on an amazing tear it could be that well let me hit some of the points and then connect to that there were other numbers so cops I think that was the big I number and really kind of surprised eleven percent is huge when your restaurant seven and a half percent of that was on transactions that's more people buy more stuff three and a half percent was on average check with about two and a half of that coming from price increases last year but the fact that they're getting more digital orders and digital orders tend to be larger sized checks for that and that's the the present com is higher than what they've had all year q one ten percent Kutu now eleven present Q. Three though this little certainly make next to your harder harder to beat but that aside the digital thing is really going up they sought eighty eight percent increase in sales of digital orders and now there's like eighteen percent of total sales so that's pretty good and the rewards club is is really beginning to play into that and so they also said they're going to Open some more of there drive through and literally that's drive through you don't stop to order you just try to go and pick up pick up the stuff and that's tied into their didn't digital sales as well but why are the shares down five percent maybe it's well the the the the company's shares have had a fantastic runner up twenty percent since the any of June maybe investors saying hey that was a great quarter thank you very much and could take some money off the table maybe it's a bunch of the analyst not raising their their expectations AH bunch of analysts came out with higher price targets but nobody actually moved there from hold to outperform or market perform. to overweight or whatever the languages but you look at the job that Brian Nickel has done as CEO and Yeah quarter after quarter Cipolla has delivered under his leadership and it may be that the stock has entered that territory that we see from time to time when businesses have a great the three year run and it's essentially this was a phenomenal quarter but it wasn't perfect because now because we're greedy we wanna see you beating on everything and Radi race and guidance headed almost did meet on everything but actually I think I know why the shares were down it was announced that they're limited time Carne Asada meat product it is going to run off November so everyone's disappointed angry and where do you think and again let me just catch Thanks I don't think there's any pressure whatsoever on Brian Nichols given the job that he's done but I'm curious where you think the growth for AAA comes over the next three years because there was a point in this business history when they were doing so well with the namesake concept that people were looking to the shop house Asian cuisine concept as that's where future growth is gonNA come from we're not going to get as many locations as we have AAA but we're going to get you know a few hundred those have essentially been closed down so do they begin to resurrect some of those ideas or do you think it's just more digital more locations and finding ways to bump up the average ticket price I don't think they're going to go into other concepts quite yet of given their experience they're probably a little gun shy right there that might come down that might come to pass down the road I think they're going to push more into digital and get more people ordering in so they can just walk in and walk out and pick up their stuff that as well as the drive through what they call chip Elaine get terrible name right actually it's kind of funny but I mean reaction it's it's it's it's no worse than the estimate forces on us getting the name aside I think that's going to be a really good driver for the company and that means they can open a second product line of just fulfilling orders through that go through more digital sales and as well as having more customers come through the doors so I think that's where the growth is going to be trial various things Carne Asada apparently did very well well are they going to bring in some breakfast at some point probably so I think they're going to continue expanding what they're working on focusing on their cordial police thing and then maybe a few years down the road might start thinking about other concept's
