"This organic Christmas truce, so well recorded by Graham Williams and others, doesn't happen everywhere on the Western Front. But I'm happy to say it isn't unique. Such scenes play out at various points across these war-torn lines. Most British sources credit the Germans in leading the way with carols at night and exiting the trenches in the morning. But the Germans likewise credit the Brits. I'm sure both are correct, all depending on the section. But whoever leads, be it the Brits, French, or other allies opposite the Germans, these spontaneous Christmas truces allow both sides to bury their dead, to make their trenches more livable, and to fraternize with one another. In one section, French poileux and German troops exchange champagne and cigarettes. Ernie Williams of the 6th Battalion, Cheshire Regiment, will later recall his astonishment when the Germans pull out a proper football. Sorry, soccer ball for American listeners. Only a 19-year-old British soldier at the time, Ernie is thrilled, and soon he's kicking the ball around with hundreds of other men, German and British alike. In some places, this truce will only last one day, in others weeks. But here, in Plugstert Wood, it will hold astonishingly well, enduring nearly until Easter. No matter how long their individual Christmas truces last, all the soldiers involved, be they British, French, Belgian, or German, will always remember this moment when they miraculously manage to pause the war to remember and celebrate their shared humanity. Indeed, the unique, transcendent Christmas truce of 1914 is just as Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle describes it in his history of the first year of the Great War. And I quote, one human episode amid all the atrocities which have stained the memory of the war. Welcome to History That Doesn't Suck. I'm your professor, Greg Jackson, and I'd like to tell you a story. Welcome to our sixth annual HTDS Christmas special, and after some 20 episodes focused on the Great War, it only feels right that this year's Christmas stories come from the 1914 was long before America's entry, but I couldn't very well skip this loving scene that only happened during World War I's first Christmas. While it's true that soldiers strike other unofficial truces in the years ahead, only this first holiday season brought the war such a unique silent night. But with that taste of the famous Christmas truce, we now pivot to spend a few Christmases with some of the people we've met in recent episodes serving over there in the American Expeditionary Force, or the AEF. We'll start with those brave New Yorkers we met in episode 138, the 15th New York, better known as the 369th, the Harlem Hellfighters, or as they preferred, the Harlem Rattlers. We'll meet them as they deploy for France, longing for their families and sweethearts just before Christmas in 1917. It's a stressful time, but they more than make the most of it. From there, we'll press into 1918 to take a brief glimpse of how the guns silencing Armistice of November 11th is driving some interfaith holiday celebrations back in the States. But since the AEF can't return home just yet, we'll stay in France for Christmas as President Woodrow Wilson meets some of the troops, and AEF Commander Blackjack Pershing throws a Christmas bash at which George Patton eats far too much. We'll then follow Blackjack's story to its end, to his death in 1948, because, well, although he passes in the summer, his death has a Christmas connection. But you have to wait for that. I'm not giving that part away. Sounds like our path is set, so let's get to some bittersweet Great War American Christmases, starting with the Atlantic. It's November 11th, 1917. We're at the armory on the corner of 92nd Street and Park Avenue, New York City, where the 15th New York, also known by their federalized designation as a 369th, but better known as the Harlem Rattlers or Hellfighters, are packing it up and moving out, again. Yes, the Rattlers have moved quite a bit of late. Only last month, these Black Doughboys began training at a camp in Spartanburg, South Carolina, but the realities and tensions of the Jim Crow South put an end to that in a matter of two weeks. There were no complaints when the regiment came back north, neither from the troops nor local residents. But now, as a result of that uncomfortable situation and lack of facilities in which they can train without facing discrimination, the Rattlers are once again moving out. They're heading straight to France and will finish their training there. Colonel William Hayward bellows out, the words send a shiver down the spine of the gifted Harlem musician, Sergeant Noble Sissel, aka Sis, as the reality of going overseas hits him. This is so abrupt. He's not alone in his life. Another exclaims, what kind of army is this? Here I got to leave that brown skinned gal of mine without last goodbye. Another Rattler answers him sarcastically, sing them blues brother. But nothing hits Sis harder than the words of his fellow musician, Lieutenant Jim Europe. Leaning in close, Jim whispers to Sis, I'm sure sorry I sent you in after those papers in France. Oh, Jim meant no harm in the comment. On the contrary, he's joking around. But Sis had clean forgotten the humiliation of that day when that Spartansburg hotelier literally kicked his backside, driving him from the establishment for daring to try to buy a newspaper. Suddenly, all the shame and embarrassment of those kicks come crashing back down on Sis's memory. But then the bugle sounds as the colonel calls out, forward march. Sis tries to let it all go as he raises his blue corded brass knob hickory stick high in the air, then brings it down signaling forward march to the whole regiment. Simultaneously, the more than 3,000 well disciplined black doughboys step forward in lockstep, marching down 92nd street toward the East River, where city excursion boats await, ready to transport them to Hoboken, New Jersey. From there, the Rattlers will ship out to the 564 foot long, 17 year old seized German steamer, now known as the Pocahontas, and head to France. The Rattlers secretly board the Pocahontas that night. They had the first black troops to out to sea. One of the ship's engines throws a piston rod, forcing the ship to return to port in Hoboken. And so, the Harlem Rattlers wait, but without complaint, as this means getting to say those last goodbyes after all, even if that means going AWOL to do so. But finally, come December 2nd, it's time. These Harlem doughboys climb aboard the repaired Pocahontas, ready to sail for France and take part in the Great War. Or so they would, if coal stored deep in the ship's hull didn't somehow combust the next day. This explosion destroys the coal bunkers, forcing their ship back to New Jersey yet again for repairs. The repairs are made. A new coal supply is loaded. On December 12th, 1917, a week and a half after their last failed departure, the Harlem Rattlers take part of the American Expeditionary Force and do their part in the Great War. And they would, if not for the blizzard that strikes that very night. Again, the Harlem Rattlers find their ship forced back to the dock. And if that isn't enough, a British oil tanker drifts into the Pocahontas during the night, tearing metal plates off of the starboard side. So once again, the ship undergoes repairs. But there's no way these men are going back yet again. So soldiers and sailors with experience in the trades take up the work themselves. Working in the freezing cold of 10 degrees and above an ice-chunk laden ocean, the men complete the necessary repairs, allowing the ship to leave with a convoy that night. This time, it's for real. But if you thought their troubles at sea were over, think again. Because no American vessel is without troubles when German U-boats are in the waters.

"Well, port and starboard you patted one another on the back. Because the radio works sometimes and sometimes most of the times it didn't, and the noise from where we were. We had four engines. The engines, so you couldn't hear anything. You could barely hear your 50 calibers going. That's the reason they were hearing aids. What was that like day after day? I didn't pay attention to it. Nobody talked about hearing problems. And I never worried about it until later on in life, and it Carol my wife did you hear me? No. Fortunately, I went to the VA and ended up getting some hearing aids. Well, mister Hansen, let's take a quick break. We'll be right back with much more of your story here on veterans chronicles.

I'm Greg Columbus, honored to be joined today by Al Hansen, a U.S. Navy veteran of World War II. Served as a gunner, aboard B-24s during World War II. He was also a back seater on a dive bomber prior to that. And so one of the things I've noticed in speaking with members of bomber crews is the cohesiveness of the bomb crew itself from the pilot all the way down to what are usually I think ten members of the crew. Talk to me about the men on your crew and how often you're able to work together and what kind of bond you built. Well, pretty much when we were on land and not flying, we were all together in one quantity hut for the all enlisted officers had their own. But we were pretty tight. We had water near us, so we were in the ocean, swimming, relaxing, playing cards, checkers, whatever. But when we did fly, it was pretty much port and starboard we didn't talk to the tail gunner because he had his responsibilities belly going to add his. Up here and there's bombardier doing his own thing. So it was to each his own type thing and the only two that really got to talk to one another. It was important to start with waste gunners. Do you feel like you all kind of had an understanding of each other and just knew what each other was going to do in a given situation? Pretty much so and when you think about it, we came from the east coast to the West Coast to the middle, states what have you and so we were from all over the United States.

"Rightly upset. At the same time, he's serving as a little bit of a meat shield here, John, because very conspicuously, I mean, we've heard from another son's minority owner. I don't mean to say that this man is an opportunist or anything like that. I think his statement is what we need. We need more of. He said something along the lines of this weird owners are just temporary stewards. These teams belong to the community. It's a fantastic point. The sons are going to last way longer than Robert starboard. So I commend that owner that minority owner for saying something, but very conspicuously the league's 30 majority owners, you know, we haven't heard from Mark Cuban Mark Cuban who loves to win on seemingly everything. We haven't learned from Mickey arison. We haven't heard from James Dolan. We haven't heard from jeanie buss. Go down the list. We haven't heard from the other owners in the league, and I wonder how much of this is, I think the question asked for is, how much of this is the other owners protecting themselves? A 100%, I mean, they rally around, look, it's a select group, right? There's only so many. There's only 30 teams. It's very difficult to get one of these teams. And who knows what kind of skeletons that other owners might have in their closet. But I think that people of a very select group, whether it be NBA owners or some other elite entity, are often reluctant to criticize each other. And that's what I think we have in this situation. I will say, though, that in the absence and it's a deafening absence of other owners standing up and speaking out about this and saying, this is unacceptable. We don't want him in our group. We should push him out of our group. You've got somebody like LeBron James, and everybody has an opinion on LeBron. I think it's unimpeachable to say that when there are issues of social import, the LeBron almost always steps forward. I remember, I forget what year it was, it was his last year in Cleveland. They were playing the warriors again in the finals. And the day before the finals were in Cleveland and the warriors had come out and said, listen, if we win, we're not going to The White House with Trump there. And LeBron came out and said, listen, nobody's going to The White House as long as Trump is there. And he made the entire day about not the finals that were happening. But about we're not because the eagles had just won the Super Bowl shots to Philadelphia Eagles for making the right decision and saying, they weren't going to go. And so the whole day was about political and social justice and injustice. And it was all built around this conversation of LeBron stepping forward. So yet again, here in this instance, in the absence of real leadership from other NBA owners, he stepped up and tweeted out that he had read through the stories a few times, and he's got to be honest, our league definitely got this wrong. I don't need to explain why. You all read the stories and decide for yourself. I said it before and I'm gonna say it again, there's no place in this league for that kind of behavior. I love this league and I deeply respect our leadership, but this isn't it. There is no place for misogyny sexism and racism in any workplace. Don't matter if you own the team or play for the team, we hold our league up as an example of our values and this ain't it. Bravo, 'cause I didn't hear that from anybody else. Yeah. And I will say, just to say, Chris Paul also released a statement and Chris Paul plays for Robert sarver and I thought this was another really strong statement. Chris Paul, like many others, I reviewed the report. I was an am horrified and disappointed by what I've read. This conduct especially towards women is unacceptable and must never be repeated. Paul continued, I'm of the view that the sanctions fell short and truly addressing what we can all agree was atrocious behavior. My heart goes out to all the people that were affected. This leads me to our next question, John. Do you think I think was the question why is Chris Paul always on the team where this happens? I was talking to another NBA reporter the other day over some tacos and Chris Paul, I know a lot of people hate him and he's very annoying to watch for some people has truly had in many ways one of the unluckiest careers for someone as good as Chris Paul and his detractors do not want me to make excuses for him but the man has been very unlucky. No question. I would like to ask you, John, do you think there's also an element of this and this is dumb. This is objectively done that this is how our society works. I think in an ideal situation, Adam silver does not work for the owners and is an actual steward of the league and has the power to get rid of someone like Robert sarver or there's some kind of independent third party made up of different representatives, maybe people from the union league that review incidents like this and decide on the punishment. But it's obvious that the person who works for the owners should not be deciding these punishments. But do you think that there is a public pressure campaign that can be mounted here because I think one thing that separates the situation from the Sterling situation because the Sterling situation was so lurid it had this, you know, there was a mistress involved Magic Johnson was involved. It was cutting through just sports talk, right? It was on CNN. You had this great national attention on it. You had the players protesting on the court. It happens during the playoffs. Do you think that there's a public pressure aspect that can maybe change this? I don't know. I'm skeptical because I think that the world burns and we have shown or been shown time and time again that people of real power and wealth and privilege are very rarely held to account for their misdeeds. However, I do believe that the pressure campaign will be mounted. I mean, I don't think that this is going to get any less hot for the suns in the NBA. And it's certainly not going to get less hot if they do in fact attempt to bring Robert sarver back. I mean, imagine if you're a Robert sarver. And all of this has come out. You got to go back to work. You got to go back into that building. You got to see all these people. You've got to face questions from the press. The minute he steps back in the building, there won't be a single question about basketball every single thing will be about. How can you have this guy around? And it won't end. Now, whether or not he can withstand and weather that, and whether or not the NBA can withstand whether that, I mean, maybe, right? The goalpost, the overton window on what's allowable and acceptable has really, really changed in the last 8 to ten years. So I wonder, I wonder if he could just throw up his hands and be like, yeah, I'll take the heat, I don't care I own an NBA team. But it doesn't make it right. You know, like it's pretty pretty evident to anybody who's right thinking and not a complete knuckle dragon Cretan that this guy's got to go. Yeah, and again, it's so shocking to me that I'm asking all these questions like, did the NBA purposefully knowing that the Sterling thing blew up in the playoffs, released this, you know, during the off season and the start of the NFL season, like, what is going on here? It's just so ridiculous that it happened this way. I think it's obvious that this kind of situation, it's not really tenable moving forward, right? I mean, you mentioned it. There's people of a certain class, the way our societies will have been built up, that frankly can escape. A lot of the consequences that people like you and I would have to face, I promise you, if I did literally one of the things Robert sarver has done, that's where it's illustrated, I would not be doing this podcast anymore. What's the fix here in your idea? How do we.

a.m. Eastern Time I'm Brian schuch This is Bloomberg law with June Grosjean from Bloomberg radio You're listening to Bloomberg law Bloomberg radio I'm Joe short sleeve When pushing for change at an organization one can push for a takeover and pursue a costly path to making management changes Or one can become an activist investor using equity in a corporation to push the organization at a particular direction but there are legal implications that come with that type of action And that's what's happening at the company GoDaddy A headline on the Bloomberg terminal activist starboard discloses go daddy stick pushes for changes story written by Bloomberg reporter Scott duva activist investor starboard value disclosed a stake in a website services company GoDaddy Inc and said it may push for changes to improve the stock's performance The New York based hedge fund said in a regulatory filing that it held a 6.5% stake in a technology company which it believes is undervalued Now starboard said in the filing that it may meet with management and the board as part of the investment to discuss ways to improve shareholder value including potential board and operational changes as well as business combinations A representative for GoDaddy didn't immediately respond to or quest for comment Now shares and GoDaddy had fallen 8.2% a year to date given the company's market valuation of roughly 12.7 billion It shares rose 7% to $81 a share on Monday Starboard has a history of pushing for changes at companies in the technology sector to explore this a little bit further We want to bring in an expert in the field This is Kai Li cafe He is a partner in the law firm sidley Austin and he co chairs Sydney's shareholder activism practice Thank you Kai for joining us Let's start a little bit with what happened Starboard's a 13 D filing which means they're basically buying more than 5% of the equity here Is noteworthy because the activist $800 million is one of the largest stakes it's ever taken Are there any regulatory hurdles for an activist to clear when they take such a large position That's a great question Thanks for having me on your program Joe Yes there are a number of regulatory hurdles for an activist to address when they take such a big stake One filing regime is with the SEC and they already cleared it by finding a so called schedule 13 D with your required to file and you have a 5% or larger stake in a public company But they are also antitrust considerations when an activist acquired a stake that is worth more than $92 million and a public company They also need to make a filing with the FTC and the DoJ from antitrust perspective to get cleared Talking with Kai leaf that he is a partner with simply Austin law firm in New York a 5th largest in the country All right now one of the interesting things is that starboard apparently gave the scoop to the media before filing that 13 D form Are there any legal issues with that maneuver It's just a little bit of a gray area of the law but that is something that activists do frequently that they get a scoop to one media outlet very often actually you're very own Scott devoe from Bloomberg and only afterwards and hour later 30 minutes later sometimes even 5 minutes later they issued their press release or make their as we see filing The SEC has not taken any action against this kind of maneuver in the past and I doubt that the SEC is focused on the but it is interesting that activists like to do that Now the stock traded up significantly following the news What is the significance of this stock price increase legally or otherwise Well it shows me that the activist probably did not give a heads up to other apps and hedge funds investors Because if you have such a large ride in the stock price following following the news it means that no one else or few outside the activist knew beforehand that this would happen So from a legal perspective it probably clears the activist from any wrongdoing It is also interesting though that a lot of outside advisers read more into the stock price increase when an activist go public A lot of outside observers feel that if the stock price increases significantly that is a core DIA validation of the accuracy I'm a little bit skeptical of that argument To me it just means that there are a lot of apps and hedge funds pouring into the stock And they oftentimes just follow the name without any larger investigation as to whether or not the activist thesis which is not even publicly disclosed in our case as any validity or not And what are the typical next legal steps for the activists after filing this schedule of 13 D Well typically activists start engaging with the public with the company privately not in public after they file a schedule 13 But at some point or another they have to make a decision whether they put up or shut up that is meaning whether or not they run approximately contest to replace all or portion of the board of the target company And at most companies there are certain deadlines to observe when making a step of running a proxy context It's called the nomination deadline The nomination demanded most companies is somewhere between February and March So that would be the next legal step in this kind of situation for an activist Leca Fett is our guest He's a partner at sidley Austin in New York He also courtiers a Sydney's shareholder activism practice Are there any illegal defenses a company can use against an activist after the filing of a schedule 13 day That's a question I always get from clients and many of my clients would like to take the activists to call to send them to jail get some beaten up but the unfortunate truth is that they have few legal defenses that have an immediate effect against an activist One of the defenses that a lot of companies explore is whether or not to adopt a so called poison pill a poison pill is a legal instrument that allows a company to limit the maximum amount of shares investor can buy typically that is a ten or 15% threshold of the outstanding shares So that's something a company can do However the poison pill just as many other sales has certain side effects and decide the fact of a poison pill is via the board can do that without shareholder approval a lot of shareholders view positive relatively negatively and tend to vote against the incumbent bought unless the board can demonstrate a very good justification for the adoption of the poison So it does legal maneuver that at some times used sometimes it makes sense to use it but there are a lot of cases the disadvantages at very outweigh the advantages of the positive Final question for me So how do you size up this activist investor starboard value and the actions they took as it relates to go daddy Well I can not speak to God daddy But generally speaking starboard is one of the most well-known activist investors either the number one of the number two act investor in the world they have a lot of credibility in the market They have a lot of capital as a disposal They have very sophisticated advisers So when they decide to go public against the company it's typically it's typically a sign of confidence on their end that they got it right That they are right He is.

classic in 22 years I'm Scott Carr I'm Barry riddles you're listening to masters and business on Bloomberg radio My special guest this week is a kinder sing Cassidy She is a tech exec and serial entrepreneur as well as the former president of StubHub Her new book choose possibility take risks and thrive even when you fail is out and is getting excellent reviews Let's talk a little bit starting with your role as president of StubHub what was that like Did you have any surprising challenges you had to deal with in that role I feel like that's the leading question Just a touch But certainly I'm happy to share So I ran StubHub from 2018 to 2020 in that time There's a lot of surprises Some I could have anticipated in some I couldn't First of all just a phenomenal and fun experience If you've ever been in a business of live experiences and giving that gift to people of live there's just really nothing like it And I'm also happy to be a big sports entertainment fan So that doesn't hurt But when I think about the things that we're surprises number one StubHub if you know the history was bought by eBay over ten years ago And so was an eBay subsidiary And I could have anticipated that eBay would continue to face shareholder pressure because it wasn't growing at the same rate as Amazon and its margins were declining And in fact that shareholder pressure came to pass and activist Elliot two activists joined the board Starboard and Elliott in 2020 Yes No no in 19 my goodness In January of 2019 and put pressure on the CEO the then CEO to sell stuff hub as opposed to hold it So midway I was only a year into my tenure when an activist joined eBay board and quickly became apparent that we were going to end up selling the company and I was going to be leading a sale process which is not necessarily what I personally wanted But so that I could have anticipated in sense that eBay had an activist was before And certainly when I took the StubHub job it did occur to me that that would be one potential risk that eBay self my parents got me to face pressure I expected more earnings pressure pressure to deliver our numbers every quarter There was an outside possibility of an activist that that came to pass and that led to the sale of the company to step up sales The Onyx the other unexpected event was COVID And ironically StubHub sold for a record job $4 billion we led a process that led to a successful transaction that closed on February 13th 2020 And I thought as much as I was personally disappointed you know I recognize it as a very successful business outcome And I was going to go have to find a new job because very rarely does the acquired company get to have a CEO around the combined company And I certainly was not getting that job The original founders that have bought back the company and he wanted to run the combined company There's a thing with you and founders coming back to run companies That's the keep in mind I've also been a founder three times Right right So I do understand that founder CEO dynamic and as I said I mean founders have an affinity for their companies that is really hard to I don't know It's just hard to put any price tag or any Sure Let's jump to our favorite questions that we ask all of our guests starting with Tell us what you've been streaming these days Give us your favorite Netflix or Amazon Prime or podcast whatever's keeping you entertained during the pandemic Sure Well I probably have three that are at the top of my list these days First of all Ted Lasso I know that my family loves so good So that's the feel good funny funny show So well done Season two not so good at season one but I will just say we're still Ted lots of diehards On Amazon a girlfriend of mine recommended mcmafia which is actually a pretty interesting for those of you who like I would say finance or financial services and the mob It's a fictional series on a British Russian financier who gets involved with the wrong folks That's a really niche one and an interesting one It's been a great series to watch Succession I'm waiting for season two I mean we all watch the session And then I would say on the podcast side right now actually I am listening to two separate podcasts about Elizabeth Holmes trial ones to drop out from ABC and the other one is out for a bad blood from John kiryu who as you know the original kind of journalist on this story So I like listening to smart people It is just keeping your breath done On the trail Really interesting stuff Tell us about some of your mentors who helped shape your career Well first of all my dad I always talk about the fact that he was a doctor but he was also an entrepreneur And he really loved working for himself And I think he made the idea of entrepreneurship so accessible for me Remember he's also the guy who told me to take that trade trip down to New York that led to the job with Merrill Lynch If there was ever a champion of possibilities even small ones all the time it was my father So he is my preeminent mentor for sure And then I think the other group I had point to is you know I've been lucky to have a lot of great people I worked for They often are my best mentors because they know me well And I know that I'm well All the tried jungly We talked about those four Indian entrepreneurs who started that company that I joined I mean my God they became an angel investors in yodeling My next company they introduced me that opportunity one of them raw I'm sharing around with the first investor in Google So when I made the decision to go to Google and they called me with because rob pushed both of us he pushed them to call me and me to consider it And you know when the situation went awry as polyvore the number one person I called was a guy named thank you Harry and I and one of those jungly founders and the one I was closest to to continue to know me and invested in all the companies I founded And I just said what do I do here And he was the one who sort of gave me the look me straight in the eye are these people you tried Do they have your values advice and tell me to get the hell out I really consider thank you probably the closest among that group But all four have been very instrumental in my career Let's talk a little bit about books What are some of your favorites and what are you reading right now Well one of my favorites I'm like a very kind of sneaky business person sometimes I don't like to read all business books but there's some I really love One of my favorites is McKinsey's gross beyond the hockey stick So if you're a leader or CEO who's ever grappling with how to get your company to grow faster and obviously it's stub hub I was trying to accelerate growth.

The 2020 Virus Crash, the world is shutting down, keep healthy, cheer up, we will beat this
"Lots of change of course since the last time you were with me on the show as after news for you wonder what will make you very happy. United. I know. You don't fly united but if you were to fly again united as asked cabin crew to controlling to dimming windows of the liner essentially say allow the passengers do whatever they want these goal. I mean I understand why they dim them at certain points of a flight on mass. So the whole cabinet atmosphere changes especially when it's supposed to be time to to sleep what? I get frustrated by than when they're locked that's what management that it has to do not lock the system. Essentially I wonder if they're able to restrict the DIM nece. So if you say you can. They're unlocked but they can't be fully open which I would kind of understand. That would certainly a piece people like me. But that's interesting that they've had such volume of feedback that they've made that change exactly or they just listened to layovers. That's that's more likely exactly the second news I hinted at it in the intro did about you is that. Berlin seems to be happening actually happening because thunder as actually scheduled flights on October thirty first. Which is the opening. Apparently the soft opening date for a full opening November eighth. It's pretty unbelievable. You set yourself that you were not believing and I wasn't believing it either but it seems stupid will open I. I don't know why it is changed times. It's interesting. There is a third party setting a date for their moving as opposed to the airport authority or anybody on behalf of the airport saying this is going to be the open day. It's it's an airline saying this is when we're going to shift and it's all their operation right. It's not it's not just a test. It's this is when we're GONNA start flying out of that airport and remember when we did both of the airports of berlin-tegel and Schoenfeld lift as it doesn't fly there. They send eurowings. I mean does Fi of course but I'm wondering now if we will actually have proper operations as Frankfurt in they don't they don't really so far so I I still cannot believe it. I mean I don't watch. I just can't believe that he's going to happen. And you know we running Joe too was was going to arrive. I Will Italia Fail I. It seems that they will never fail. Will the Max Awry? I A berliner. After these two are still in contention the Mexico to arrive before Berlin. I duNNo. It's very because with strange times. We'RE LIVING. I don't lie about answer window. So there on office and depends on Crete where you sit and Jeez. I want to give up to Andrew. Curran is a writer for a site that we both read quite often called simple flying and so quoted us like mentioned us which is very nice. Exactly that okay. Because we were saying like who's going to be I you know the Max or and well. He said that we did. Put our money onto Max coming. I was still have a shot of that Andrew. You're basing northern New South Wales in Australia. I I'll show her friends will maybe having a strap. Is it coming up at some point this year? Maybe maybe so into you will have it. His favourite airline is a Singapore Airlines. Here you have very taste I was gonNA say fair enough. I'm just wondering what's Your airport. Because you say northern New South Wales Brisbane is probably close to you. But that's already Queensland believe so which one is it Andrew? Just reach out to us and thank you for for listening. And since I'm on simple flying they also have a podcast. It's a very cool podcast as well. Everybody's doing podcasts Alex. We're we're the okay boomers podcast now because we're like the og in like everybody does podcast. It's very close. The I think they started like early. Feb they also have like these kinds of thirty minutes once a week. Type of Schedule which is really cool for those who don't want to listen to US venture for two hours every odd weeks that we we. Do we do this? So simple flying. You can find it on apple podcasts and everywhere and this is Super Cool Bravo guys. Congratulations more the merrier. Since we're talking about okay boomer of Aggie podcasts. Ourselves to reviews I on apple podcasts. Five stars thank you. The title is where has this? Been all my life from BIG CASTS. Eleven from the. Us These guys are awesome. Content is always amazing. Well thank you so much. They really open up the world to people through their travels. I'm not traveling and personal experiences. I love their personalities. Spot guests is great for any AV geeks such as myself or someone who loves travel. Thank you so much and the second one is from already in MS ready in MSP. Of course Minneapolis which we now covered as you heard. Alex great details on Global Airlines Five Stars Great Show. I always enjoy your shows and look forward to the next one is interesting to hear where you have been and the airlines. You flown on question receive people. I love it that people use reviews. Us question looking at booking a trip to Rome on American Airlines with miles and seem to be able to get much better rate if I had to stop in either Madrid on you barrier or London. Nba would you recommend this? And if so which city in our line? Well Man Rudy going to Rome today not sure. I don't think that here experience. If you quite what you hoped it would be the. What would you do for when if all this stops because Italy for those? Who Don't keep track of isn't a full lockdown. So I mean I know that Ryan ourselves fly Suzanne set from Rome but besides that I think no one flies there. Would you if you weren't? Us would you fly direct with a? Would you prefer a barrier via Madrid? I know our love for Narnia and or we e throw with. I don't know the long haul product. I don't really know the shorthaul product either so I don't know but between the two I would still go a in premium an above but be a in economy. Yeah and if you really want to stop so meaning if as out of the question be. I think it's still a better choice in because you will not be changing terminal in Saudi throw. You'll be fine. Yeah passing so I. I know some people might disagree. But and it's not that we don't pay you better. I think the whole product I've done because I've done to Madrid three forty I think. Yeah it's okay. There's ochre like looking at each other as the be a business for instance but it's it's okay. I think still better. So how's your flu Alex? Well just waiting for the inevitable. I can't do this all any of us can do anything. Yeah exactly it's it's so strange man. Up China Eastern has introduced a new coronavirus glass. Oh on top of visas. Glass preemies coronavirus. The last three row after starboard side off their aircraft will be reserved for those who show potential signs of sickness. Now it's not called the coronavirus. Plus that's me actually making that up but they are actually segregating a bit of the aircraft for people that might have signs of sickness. I I don't know how it works but yeah people that develop the symptoms during the flight. Surely you shouldn't be traveling if you already have this and maybe an epidemiologist would be able to tell us if this is complete waste of time it feels like a complete waste of time. Yeah I said in my very long intro in the previous episode I'm sorry guys it was thirty minutes of renting that Yeah you should be flying if you if you're sick even James Von for crying out loud is my God. I'm like I'm so unhappy about that. That was you. Were not traveling. At least seeing James Bond like a month would have been called but no we don't even get get oil. You can't go. I mean people are not supposed to the movie theater anyway. That's what we're doing right now. Alex Social Distance. What exactly I don't know man. I I think I have a lot less apocalyptic view than this or more A. There's very little I can do about it. That's true however I think that's that's very true. I'm being mindful as not being panicky and I. I see people being panicky. I think that I mean we'll come to that. Actually know what planes it becoming the safest place for social distancing because they're at and the prices are dropping some of the. I mean I think what we see on. Social media is the extreme cases where there's four people on a flight to wherever it may be but the data is now emerging to that showing that these these flights are tanking. And you know now. These reports are coming out. That airlines are running virgin. Nba running empty flights. Just to keep the slots alive gump to that. Yeah Yeah it's not. I mean I think it was of all of the industries that could suffer the most initially. Who knows what the future holds travel and particularly airlines. We're going to be the ones that got hit
Atomic Waste in the Pacific Ocean
"Today nuclear waste in Marine Sanctuary in nineteen eighteen. Forty six ninety military class vessels were gathered around the tiny Pacific Toll Bikini for operation crossroads tests of the atomic bomb one. All these ships was the aircraft carrier. US Independence of the few vessels to survive the blast independence was towed the nearly five thousand miles miles from Bikini to the hunters point naval shipyard outside of San Francisco for five years from nineteen forty six to nineteen fifty one. The independence was the heart of the Naval Radiological Defence Laboratory. US military's largest facility for applied nuclear research. After the war. The ship yard was is used to investigate methods of decontaminating ships including the independence. The survived operation crossroads but they were also testing for effects is on animals. That evidence is surface that they may have experimented on prisoners from nearby penitentiary. All the ships independence remained at the shipyard longest finally in nineteen fifty one when it was on the verge of sinking it was towed out scuttled. It's finally wrestled in place in three thousand feet of water and her gunners made John classmen. John spent his post on lesson. Jeers one thousand nine hundred fifty five to nineteen fifty-nine stationed on the USS Tug Topeka shipped out of San Francisco Naval Shipyard at hunters point. Part of his regular job was to tow a barge carried radioactive waste under the Golden Gate Bridge Bridge and out into the Gulf of the Pharaoh on their the bottom of the barge would open to release containers barrels of radioactive waste into the sea. The routine was always the same barrels were collected on the barge until it was full and then it was towed out to the Gulf of the fairlawn where they were dropped into the sea on several occasions glassman recalls a member of the Atomic Energy Commission came on board the ship and told him that the measurements showed the radiation levels. Were too hi. This ship should be cleaned up before the next load but there was another part of glassman's job. He was to shoot holes in the barrels of didn't immediately sync. He says he did his job shooting. Ten to twenty barrels once or twice a week this would lead one to believe that many of the Navy's radioactive waste containers -tainer or barrels were breached before they ever reached the bottom of the sea and became part of what is known as the Farallon Island nuclear waste site glassman notes the carcasses of dead animals mainly dogs and castes constitute much of the cargo barge is tug regularly towed and those animals had been used in experiments Aramis with the naval radiological defence lab. He said there were other kinds of waste in the barrel. Also that from security surrounding certain barrels visitors from from various correctional facilities. He concluded that those barrels were filled. Possibly with human remains. The Farrell's waist side is a triangle. Shape a piece of seascape that sits about thirty miles west of San Francisco it encompasses most of the Gulf of fairlawn National Marine Sanctuary gorgeous just refuge read and other wildlife that includes some of the most fertile commercial fishing waters in the Pacific. As for glassman he no longer live. Awesome San Francisco. His speech is slurred. He has a rare form multiple sclerosis which is often brought on by exposure to radiation in a recent interview where his wife had to translate what he was saying. He describes sleepy on the starboard side of the ship aside next to the barges loading gate where for over five five years of his tour of duty. Hundreds of barrels containing radioactive wastes. Were
The Ghost Ship Jenny
"If you scan the Internet you'll find numerous references to go ships. But what is a ghost ship. Exactly curious I did a little digging. It turns out that any vessel without crew or living crews considered a ghost ship. This could be the flying Dutchman or schooner caught by a rogue wave that becomes a victim at the moment. Lock down where the ship literally rolls over losing her killing the crew in the process. You might not have heard of the ship Jenny. She was found in eighteen. Eighteen forty inside the frozen region. So the drake passage. It disappeared in eighteen twenty three. Could it be that the Jenny remained in a giant ice barrier. Never crushed simply frozen for seventeen years. The last entry in the captain's log was haunting. Date may may four eighteen. Twenty three no food for seventy one days. I'm the only one left alive. The chimney was discovered by the whaling ship. Hope it was reported that the Captain Jenny was found sitting in a chair. Frozen solid the story of the discovery of the Chinese submitted to German geographical. Oh magazine the detail of the story. Explains that the crew of the hope spotted what appeared to be a ship in trouble and although as they approached it looked battered. They counted half a dozen men on the deck but when they pulled up on the starboard side. They discovered a grisly sight. All six men were frozen solid. The captain of the hope was the first board the Jenny. It was below and the captain's quarters that he came across the frozen body of the captain of the Jenny. Pen still in hand. There were reports that the captain is frozen dog and wife and the entire crew were buried at sea but there are others of that shipping error. The state of captain and the crew of the Jenny were left untouched and the only item taken was the ship's log and that the Jenny still sales the Arctic Ocean.
CVS CEO Larry Merlo: We are a health-care company today
"CVS Health the drugstore. Giant is one year into its merger with Aetna creating a one hundred ninety five billion dollar healthcare company. That's the eighth largest in the fortune. Five hundred although it runs more than nine thousand stores the new CVS CVS health is no longer just retail. It's also a pharmacy benefits manager. One of the nation's largest insurers and runs a burgeoning chain of healthcare clinics and as is so often the case with the big companies. CBS has held talks with an activist. Investor starboard value has taken a stake in the company. We'll talk about all that. Here's Larry Merlo and yes he started as is a pharmacist. CEO OF CVS health. Larry it's great to see you right to be here becky. So where are you just over a year end you know what has been a terrific year. The Integration Gratien of the two companies has gone very. Well I in many respects. Were ahead of schedule. On many of the integration activities and as a result the synergy dollars associated associated with integration is ahead of plan and at the same time we begun. The transformation journey were bringing innovative products and services to market The most visible side of that the health clubs They've gotten off to a great start in Houston and we've laid a solid foundation for growth in in the years to come in The credit for this goes to our three three hundred thousand colleagues. They're absolutely committed to our vision or strategy and they're working hard to bring it to life. Where are you ahead of expectations? In terms of in terms of the combination factors factors into what the there were many many synergy activities in terms of combining the companies as it relates to the back office pharmacy programs and priorities. And those are the things that have garnered A lot of momentum and ahead of ahead of plan there and again. We're excited with With what's happening with the health clubs and in some of the other products that That we have in pilot and In the response we're getting from our customers. The stock over the course of the year has is not performed strongly but you have picked up pretty sharply over the last nine months and if we compared to what's been happening with walgreens shares. It's a much different story. They've been under quite a bit of pressure as there's been concerns concerns about what's happening in the pharmacy so it does look from that relative perspective like you guys made the right move by pivoting. What have you heard from starboard when they came in what? What are the conversations that they've started? Well Becky I'm not gonNA comment on market speculation. What I will say is we have a regular dialogue with our investors? We certainly appreciate Their their input and You know in their feedback and look I think. Investors see the momentum in the business. We've had three consecutive quarters where we've where we beat expectations and they're seeing tangible signs of our vision coming to life with things like the health ups and you know we had an investor. Yesterday in early June we laid out our strategy and more important the path forward over the next three years and the stock spin up about forty percent since that meeting. Larry when I I look at your stock your trading more with the AETNA purchase your trading more like a united healthcare trading as as opposed to a drugstore company. How should investors at home think about your company and how to value well Tom? We are a healthcare company. Today that journey began many years ago and we celebrated five years. Here's this past September of eliminating the sale of tobacco. was there with you. I was on the Stock Exchange for third. We rang the bell. It was it was a great day and at a day day that made us all proud was fun and we look back. You know five years ago. It was absolutely the right decision. It's open doors for partnership for acquisitions. Obviously Asleep the pinnacle of that is the acquisition and We are healthcare company today and and we have an opportunity putting the consumer at the center of our strategy you to transform the way healthcare is delivered in our country of of CVS moved very quickly in terms of saying they weren't going to sell tobacco. I remember at the time that was a little bit of a controversial move although so it has seemed to pay dividends for. Cvs what do you think about. What's happening with vaping right now becky? It's a great question and I can remember the question we got back then was well. Will you carry the e cigarettes and yeah I remember going into A A retail establishment that was selling the products and and I saw the device vice with the Hello Kitty logo in the bubble gum flavored liquid. And you know it it absolutely raise the question in terms of we'll wait a minute. What are we doing here and five years later we see what has happened? post the tobacco announcement. We started a campaign. We are working with community partners. Be the first create the first tobacco free generation. We've made a lot of progress. We have more than two hundred college and university campuses that are tobacco free today as a result of that program. But you vaping is taking us backwards you see some of the statistics vaping up more than seventy percent with school aged children and I saw some stats recently. That more within seventy percent of high school students that are vaping will turn to tobacco upon graduation. So we've got a reverse try
Domino's climbs despite earnings and revenue miss
"We're going to start with Domino's pizza third quarter profits and revenue came in lower than expected they cut their revenue guidance why is the stock up four percent this was not a this is a company that has I'm so well for so long this was not a great quarter and anytime you're cutting revenue guidance that's that doesn't go in the plus column so it's interesting you say that because the last I looked at the stock it was actually down so it must have rebounded for reasons unbeknownst to me this is like a personal to one for me I know we're not supposed to get him ocean about our stocks but I've been with this company both professionally and personally no really time for a decade and what what a wonderful story they really did everything you would wanNA company to do right Everything from being honest about the menu and revamping the choices too Oh embracing the digital world and and just great leadership over the years and the stock reacted I mean really great formats but now lately we're seeing through no fault of their own competition come in to to play and it's the folks like Uber eats endure dash in let's mates grandpa those guys and so what do you do when you're doing everything right and through no fault of euro and something comes into shock the system and either disarray intermediates or disrupts what you've been doing pretty darn well and so I actually feel bad even though you're not supposed to get emotional about your stocks I feel bad that this is impacting domino's business and it is and it will continue to do so because pizza and perhaps Chinese food is not the only game in town now when you WanNa get food delivered and that really will impact the business I feel like it's almost like a new normal the company will continue to do well they will continue to innovate can you to make pizza that I don't think is amazing but that people like it's just not going to be the the robust growth that they had over the last let's call it three six years because competition has come in I think the growth is goes back even before that and then th the person leading all that was Patrick Doyle and did a phenomenal final job over really the past decade as you said starting with the whole campaign where they came out and basically said Yeah Pizza's not that good we're gonNA work to make it under the digital revolution embracing all of that Patrick Doyle's no longer running the company rich allison took over in July doc it's early days for him as a CEO but it's off to a great start and and this is probably a little unfair but still no fun if you're if you're it's the combination of it's really tough act to follow because oil did an mazing job leaving leading this company as you said and maybe doyle that's part of his brilliant is deciding to leave at the right time but the next couple of quarters if they look like this where it's yes we're growing same store sales quarter over quarter year-over-year but not to the degree that we didn't have passed we're doing good not great then rich allison first year is probably going to be frowned upon yeah and looking into my crystal ball I think that is what we're going to see in fact the company is kind of telling us that with it with their guidance they replaced their three to five year forecast with the shorter term outlook. I guess you know kind of saying we it's harder for us to actually look out that far so we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA look out next two to three years but they've they've reigned in their growth there's going to look at too have percents same store sales in the next two to three years rather than three to six over the longer term so there signaling to us that the writing is on wall competition is real and that will impact numbers is two point four percent US ourselves which they just did this quarter is that a bad that's not a bad number it's just not as good as it was and the looks like the days of the four or five or six percent same store sales numbers could be behind them unless they come pull a rabbit out of a hat and come up with something that's pretty exciting and what those things usually are promotion will for example they offered half off online orders for a week in August they lost a twenty percent offer for late night orders in September you can do do that but what that ends up doing is impacting your margins because you're you're making less per pizza per unit of food that impacts your margins that impacts your profitability so you might get a boost in revenue but it'll be less profitable revenue per dollar it's interesting that a lot of the talk and I I think you're right in this regard is about the expanded competition in the world of anything can be delivered Jordache Uber et Cetera that being said Charleston also has the misfortune of taking the top job at domino's at a time when you're too of Pizza Hut's sponsorship with the NFL kick it's an Papa John's maybe turning the corner when maybe is the key over the next six months it'll be interesting to watch those two as betters and this whole issue of third party delivery where domino's continues to toe the line and say look we don't think the economics work that's why we're not doing it it'll be interesting to see six to twelve months from now if they're holding the line on that and in fact it works out for them or decide to maybe strike a deal with someone and then they can't fight the tide yet remains to be seen I have a feeling the answer is no but we'll see you know companies like McDonalds I think McDonald's might be the number one uber eats brand and I guess it's not surprising it's cheap you know I guess good if you like that kind of thing and and and people just want their their burgers and fries and and but again there are so many offerings how you want barbecue barbecue you want Indian food to get into you have anything you want so it has really changed the game it would be complete Lee surprising if that didn't take a bite out of market share or revenue from companies like like the traditional pizza companies so we'll have to see what the new normal is and and what stock price makes sense for the new normal the stock on the face of it is not necessarily expensive here even with the reduced insist turned twenty three times forward earnings look at Papa John's which is forty two times Papas struggling obviously stubborn values cummings forty two times forward earnings starbucks coming in the during those hearings are depressed so that you know that's Kinda why and we'll see if starboard can the ship there they have a great track record I wouldn't sleep on them they're going to get stuff done but the twenty three times of of Domino's is more in line with McDonald's twenty five times on the other end of the of the coin together at Tripoli that's over fifty times that that's pretty expensive here so not such an expensive stock but it's hard to get excited about a company that is signaling to you that weaknesses coming
Why Box is one of the most under appreciated companies out there
"Not all sas companies have the best of luck on the stock exchanges so we want to talk a little bit about box because there were some very interesting news about the company this week so box went public years ago. I believe it was twenty twenty fifteen and this week it was reported that starboard value <hes> had taken a seven and a half percent stake in box and starboard is a company that tends since to invest largely and underperforming stocks. That's right so i'm in the last couple of years. Boxes had huge swings evaluation. I know jason i. I think you were the lead investor for emergencies or investors. Since two thousand eleven that's great and we actually have aaron levie hopefully on stage. I think this is the i public appearance posted the starboard value news but <hes> boxes had a huge kind of a roller coaster. I mean we've had some really good years. In the last six months is also declined quite a bit. What are you sort of. Take the stock of the company. Today you know what sort of the future for them honestly i think boxes one of the most under appreciated companies out there and i think some of it is deserved served because they they have the growth rate hasn't been quite as high as they would have liked and they haven't been as capitol efficient <hes> there are one of the first task companies to really go after the enterprise is and it's a very expensive proposition so they had dropbox at the low end microsoft. Obviously you know competition as well and so they put a lot of energy gene resources into executing well in the enterprise which they have done and we invested there was a ten million dollar revenue business and we're going to be over seven hundred million in revenue this year well. I mean they. They've grown tremendously <hes>. They have a stellar team. Aaron is a truly exceptional leader. I think <hes> but we are entering in this new era of activist. I investors in south and cloud companies. I think that's the first time i've heard of that happening. It'll be very interesting to see what the impact is and you expect to see more of that. I hope not explain to our listeners. Why that's bad well. I mean these guys are not known necessarily for long term investing. They're known for getting in and to cut costs and and find ways of generating a quick return. I mean that's the way they tend to to run so in a business. That ed requires a lot of upfront investment for a lot of long term value creation. I think they're not necessarily the best it. This is my own opinion but <hes> but we'll see. It'll be interesting to see what they what they do.
Are we talking about GE or GM?
"That Tuesday, April nights. Welcome to Mark Tillery. I'm Chris joining me in studio today from fam- fund, a proud graduate of the university of Virginia law school Bill Barker. Congratulations to your Cavaliers. Thank you. Thank you very much. It was good run heck of a run and we've got condolences to our colleague, Mike Robinson whose Texas Tech grad who's at the basketball game last night. But congrats to. Metropolitan our colleague, and the many UVA graduates who worked here at headquarters. Lot of lot of orange and blue around the office today a lot of people fly in the colors. Why not they should? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, we're is a Virginia company. That's true. That's true. People don't know that. And let's face it. When it comes to major college sports, you're probably going to have a better shot at winning national title with your law school than your undergraduate alma mater, time will tell I guess, I guess we'll say we're going to dip into the full mailbag. We've got news from the healthcare industry the packaged foods industry. Let's start with this get the popcorn ready because on Wednesday. The CEO of the biggest banks in America are heading to Capitol Hill to testify before the House Financial Services committee. The rundown is Jamie diamond from J P Morgan Michael bat from city, David Solomon from Goldman Sachs, Jim Gorman from Morgan Stanley, Brian moynahan from Bank of America will get to Wells Fargo in a second coincidentally or maybe not coincidentally Bank of America announcing today that the company is raising the minimum wage at its company to twenty dollars an hour. And if nothing else the timing of that announcement makes Wednesday probably a little less painful for Brian moynahan hand testifying on Capitol Hill. Yeah, I think so I don't think there's much coincidence about it. I think it's. We'll see it seems like a smart political play at the moment getting the headlines that that they want and positioning, and they'll know expound on that a bit in front of the cameras. So I think that it takes some of the wind out of the sales of of those that are going to attack at least Bank of American. I, you know, I think every everybody is going to be under pressure to to respond. So in terms of Wells Fargo. At the moment. If someone from Wells Fargo is on the list to testify I haven't seen it yet. Doesn't mean. It's not going to happen. We've still got time before the hearing. But I'm reminded of a conversation. I had couple years back with Paul liner. Who's covered the automotive industry for thirty plus years, and we have him on motley. Fool money pretty much every year around the North American International auto show in January and talking to Paul about how. About the ripple effect of. Automaker X having some sort of large failure. And failure to disclose. The failure of whatever the technology is whether you know, it's Volkswagen in the emission standard and just sort of the ripple effect. Like, if you're if you're any of the other automakers you like 'cause they they all pay for it in some small way. And by the same token Wells Fargo just continuing to screw up in terms of their own culture the fake account scandal. Tim Sloan who was there when the scandal? Happing happened not being the right person to try and clean up the mess. And then you know, he is shown the door. If you're any of these other CEO's, I have to believe in the back of their mind at some point tomorrow. They want to say, hey, at least, we're not Wells Fargo. I mean, it just it. It's one of those things where yes, it's a Wells Fargo problem. But it really does spread to the other. Banks. Yeah. I I think that they'll probably to the extent they can sort of redirect the questioning toward. Oh, well, Wells Fargo. You probably would've enjoyed having them here to kick around. And I was I was looking up some of the data on what's been paid. So far post. Oh, eight oh nine and there have been about a about a quarter of a trillion dollars in fines against the banks and not all that cash. Some of that is as been settled in by loan forgiveness, and and some other credits, but it's a, you know, in terms of there was a bail out of the banks true enough, and they paid back the money that they were in some cases forced to borrow from from the federal government. But but that was paid back and they have paid fines. And I don't know that that it is a strong thing to say, hey, look, we've already paid a quarter of a trillion, you know, combined in fine. So don't act like we. Haven't you know, already been punished? That's that's not going to get them anywhere. But you know, they can talk bleakly I guess about having made amends at times, well and one difference between now and five years ago eight years ago that sort of thing is you can make a pretty strong case that big banks are no longer number one on capitol Hill's enemy list in terms of the business world. I think the big tech has probably supplanted them. So for any CEO who wants to try out there? Well, hey, at least we're not Wells Fargo. They could just as easily and by the way, we're also not Facebook. Yeah. Well, and I don't know if that's going to go anywhere either. As I so they've got to create the accentuate the positive part of the story in this twenty dollar minimum pay which Monahan is said, look anybody who works here is going to be making at least forty one thousand dollars. A year. That sounds pretty good as if you're thinking in terms of a minimum wage job of which there are essentially none INA back, right? You've got Bank tellers to the degree that that's a major part of the employment. Banks. I don't know how much that's the case. But you don't have a lot of employees who are probably, you know, competing with at any of these banks who are thinking, what are the other minimum wage jobs that I would be comparing this against, but I think it is a positive, and they're pointing to it in part as something that they are doing their they're connecting the dots between the tax cut and making this sort of passing on some of the profits that they have they're sitting on from from the massive tax cut. So you know, that will get them some of the way with maybe about. You know, one half of the aisle one side of the aisle will will allow them to talk about that and the other half, probably less. So. Like, I said get the popcorn ready. Let's move onto Cerna Corp, which is healthcare. Technology firm, sir has reached an agreement with starboard value. Well, known activist investors to add four members to the board of directors Cerna is also buying back. One point two billion dollars worth of stock. Which of these two things is pushing shares of sir up ten percent today. Because my assumption is just based on the fact that shares of Sern are have sort of treaded water over the last five years or so I'm assuming it's the board seats, I think, yes. Wing along in the the line that starboard is is recommending it's remarkable starved really doesn't have that much of Cerna. I think a red by one percent of Cerna stock, but there's whole laundry list of changes that are going to be made including the strategic business unit being eliminated. I think that. Dividend was just recently, the started by sir. And it looks like they are going to be forced to change some of their capital allocation, including at least authorization to buy back up to one point two billion whether that gets follow through or not we'll see. But I think the board search is, you know, that's that's all part of the equation. I don't know how you can separate a twelve percent move when it opened now it's maybe eight or nine percent. And you know, what part of that is scribe to what part of this whole package. I'm not looking knock starboard value. But I am curious about something that you just said, which is that start value only has a one percent of Cerna Stott. How are they getting four seats on the board? If they only have one percent of the stock. The seems like something you get when you have at least five percent of the stock and really closer. To ten percent of the stock. I agree. I was surprised when when I read that. And so I want to admit that I need to make sure that that's the case before going too far. But if it is the case, you can you can guess that they have some other shares that they are in communication with that are on their side because. Yeah, one percent is one percent. If that's all that. It means is hey, sell your one percent if you know that unhappy. I mean, we we don't you don't have as much power as you think. But if they have plenty of people on their Rolodex, and you know, nowhere to push the buttons and organize the the votes that proxy time than that. That's a different story. Yeah. I was gonna say if in fact, it's only one percent then that opens up a whole world of opportunity for activist investors, potentially. Our Email address is market fully at full dot com. Questioned from dang who's writing from China, dang rights. I've been listening to market fuller since I started investing in stocks and twenty fourteen lately, I've been looking at some large cap stocks, which may not grow that fast and cites as examples Kroger General Motors and some airlines docks. Goes on to I'm considering their p values which are below ten making them cheaper than the market average. Are they bargain or are they potential traps? The age old question dang value play or value trap. Because that is always the thing that sucks in. I was gonna say value investors. But really a lot of investors just, you know, their growth investors who just see a stock. Get knocked down twenty percent in one day and immediately start thinking. Well, look, it's it's on sale twenty percent. So you know, maybe I should be jumping in here. How do you help people think about solving this question because we're talking about more than one stock here, and we're not gonna go through like Kroger. General, you know, we're not gonna go through all of them. But what do you sort of look for once once you've made that initial calculation of? Okay. Here's a large cap, it's not going away. And sometimes we're looking at large companies that are paying dividend. So there's some reason to buy them, maybe the businesses and setting the world on fire, but you've done the math. And you say we'll look from peace stamp this significantly cheaper than the overall market. Why should I buy a few shares? Yeah. Is a good question. And to take the p so it's I'm looking at data that right now in comparison to its forward earnings GE for instances at five point eight times forward earnings. And boy that sounds street at is cheap over the last five years. The average is six point two. So usually for the market for the last five years for GE over g so g is not it's maybe, you know, five percent cheaper than its five-year average in comparison to the forward earnings expectations. And why is it so cheap one the Ford earnings tend to be overly optimistic not only for GE, but for everybody at this time of the year, you're still going out one quarter ninth and yet reported, and so there is the typical enthusiasm about the year ahead, and as the year goes down and companies report, and they say, you know, we're gonna we're not gonna Aaron quite as much as we may be thought we did. Or as you thought we did. Additionally, just it's a highly cyclical industry autos and auto sales of begun to level in decline, and

'Avengers: Infinity War' Writer Explains Why Thanos Waited So Long to Execute His Plan
"And I think this might be the next one with the men in black spin off which already stars, Chris Hemsworth, antenna Thomson, a deadline. She's been cast in a mysterious role in the film. We don't know yet, but she'll be joining the film which already stars house with Thomson as well as Liam. Niessen non Johnny race fall an Thompson. I didn't think I wanted a minimum black spin off the, but so far the casting in this has been pretty great. I dunno, I, it's, it's, it's kind of making me curious in excited even though I know it's probably not going to be good, but Ben, do you have any thoughts? I'm sort of right there with you. I, I am a big fan of Rebecca Ferguson. I feel like we've seen a lot of, you know, in our internal slash film slack channels. There's been a lot of speculation about what this means do we think do you think that maybe she's playing a villain. I think that was one of Jacob's theories, Hugh put any any stock in that. I would really like to see her play villain. Just personally, I think she could act hell out of a role like that, and it would be fun to steer sort of amp it up on screen opposite hamsters and Thompson. So I think that that could possibly be the case. I mean, it's totally also plausible that she would be playing nother MIB agent because she kind of. Fits the Bill. Having played a a spy in the mission, impossible films, we know that this one's going to go international so they might have other bureaus from around the world of the the men in black. She could definitely be like someone from the Cape bureau. Yeah, exactly. Yeah. Okay. Our last and final story is a bit of a spoiler. No, it is right for ventures, Infinity war. So if you have not seen a vendor Infinity war, you can tune out now because we're about to get into spoilers, and that is the writer for of injuries and finish. The war has finally explained why they knows waited so long to execute his plan in that movie then tell us about it. Yeah. So it was six years between when audiences I saw fan and the mid credit scene of the avengers to win. He basically destroyed half of the universe in vendors and finish this year. So why did it take that long? Stephen mcfeely who is one of the co writers according to the. Ventures. Infinity war commentary explained Thanos his timetable, and he said, the catalyst for the whole movie was when Thanos figuring out where the soul stone was because he captured nebula on his ship after she went after him at the end of guardians with galaxy volume two, and it around in her brain and found out that Comoran knew where the soul stone was. So basically all boils down to Santos wanted to know where all of the Infinity stones were. So he could just, you know, bounce from one location to the next and gather all of them instead of getting them one at a time and maybe having to potentially fight off other people who might be looking for them or anything like that. I, I mean, I think this is one of those things that we kind of assumed, but I guess it's nice to have somebody in like an official capacity confirm this, and the whole thing just really makes me feel bad for nebula because she's basically a torture victim. I mean that that scene in Infinity warrior, where the camera moves to the side and you see that she's being, you know, stretch. Out against her will and sort of physically broken f as she as phantoms is trying to pump. Her for information is is pretty horrifying. So I mean, I guess she cracked and there's not. I mean, I certainly don't blame nebula for that. You know, I was sort of in this article wondering like who is ultimately responsible for this like, do you blame nebula? Probably not. Do you blame 'camorra for sharing the secret information with nebula in the first place? I don't know about that. I think we all star ward starboard blame..
