White House Vows To Have Something To Stick In Your Arm By October
"When will there be a vaccine that's been the question on everyone's mind since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. And today we may finally have a clearer picture of the timeline yesterday President Trump filed to definitely something to stick in your arms soon. And as ordered the rollout of some kind of sharp pointy medicine thing that will poke you by the end of October at the latest your CDC deputy director and shook it on the White House has promised thanks to our nation's doctors being at the Forefront of medical and scientific research and our American Ingenuity. The US will be the first country to distribute a stabby pointy pain a vile thingy designed to be jabbed directly into patients muscle or skin or something and it will have some effect on your body either good or bad joining us. Now with more is ope our health corporate agenda Resnick. So Jenna, it sounds like something that at least resembles a vaccine could be on the horizon exactly which phase of the process is it in well as of right now Leslie, we really don't know very much but what we do know is this President Trump has guaranteed that all Americans will get stuck with something in their arm by election day. Now so far Pfizer Moderne and AstraZeneca have all been able to develop some very promising poking methods extremely sharp long and wet take a listen after ten long months. We know Americans are ready and excited to get stabbed soon people just like you and me will be able to go to a pharmacy down pay money and get stabbed through the skin with a vial of goo in a very painful way. Well, I gotta say that can't come soon enough, but I have to admit Jenna I really wasn't expecting to get stabbed by our government until Twenty-One at the earliest. That's right. Some were even estimating 2024 is a more realistic time frame for having a stranger in Scrubs inject healing juices into your veins. But according to the CDC even with the accelerated schedule early trials are going well. So far. The devices have been very effective at going into and out of arms as well as shooting the liquid which has been amply moist. They are however still trying to work out some of the quote Peppa Pig. And deadly side effects, but that's not going to stop them from rolling this thing out and Walgreens and CVS Pharmacies across the country as soon as possible. Oh Walgreens, that's where I buy my little bottles of orange juice and large fish oil pills every morning so you can count me and but Jenna I have to assume people are going to be pretty excited to have their skin punctured once it's available and personally, I'd rather endanger everyone around me or even die myself rather than wait in line longer than 15 seconds. How does the government plan to roll this out in a way that meets the high demand? Well, it's certainly going to be difficult. But the plan as of now is to prioritize Suburban patients who are also undecided voters. The White House also wants to focus on high-risk patients like the elderly particularly in blue States and is planning to stab them all in the neck presumably so the serum can get to their brain faster interesting tactical. How much is it going to cost while there had certainly been talk of it being no cost to patients. The price has actually yet to be set according to the CDC so far they've estimated it could cost either $10 5 home. Dollars or even one hundred thousand dollars depending on how desperate we get small price to pay for a vaccine that may or may not work. Thanks Jenna when it comes out. I'll be first in line. Otherwise, I'm not getting it. I'm a busy man. Anyway, that's opr is Jenna Resnick back in a moment? You know even with a vaccine, I'm still not sure if I'll ever feel quite comfortable enough to go back to a restaurant again and hide in the big garbage can and the kitchen so that when the wait staff clears off the food left behind on both of those plates at lands right into my open mouth allowing me to eat a free meal with the people working at the restaurant being none the wiser, but who knows maybe one day we'll be able to get back to some sense of normalcy. Anyway, here's what I need to know today the far-right conspiracy theory dub qanon has gained an alarming amount of traction in the lead up to this year's presidential election. And today we may have more of an understanding as to why a new psychological study published this morning has found that the appeal of qanon can be attributed largely to it being one hundred percent true top psychiatric researchers have concluded that when a certain type of person is presented with the fact that our government is secretly run by a cabal of Satan worshipping pedophiles. They will have a tendency to believe these claims due to the fact that they're totally real and absolutely can be backed up with hard undeniable evidence if you just Just read between the lines interesting. They may have to dive into my Facebook feed and do a little research on this for myself and big news for bird lovers today is ornithologist from the University of Rhode Island have been founded a ten million dollar Grant to research whether that big bird up. There is a hawk researchers are hopeful that this newly secured funding will help them ascertain whether the burden question is indeed a hawk and not some kind of ego long possibly even a falcon in will allow them to expand their investigation by passing around the binoculars so they can all get a better look at that thing. And finally as we near the end of the month Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti has unveiled his plan to combat the city's growing homeless population brought on by the mass evictions plaguing his city mayor Garcetti announced today his administration stands committed to ensuring every Los angeleno has a roof over their head and that he would personally be sending around some pretty reasonable Zillow listings to those in need sounds like a great plan and if any homeless residents are listening take my advice if you see something you like on one of them. Listings hop on a quick anything under a million usually gets cooped up pretty fast. And that's the topical for today on Leslie Price.

Drug Addiction In America
"Woken to Mentally Yours Metro could ikaes weekly podcast about all things mental health. Today we're talking to Dave. Marlon, he was the CEO of crossroads of Southern Nevada, which was the largest addiction and Rehab Center in the area, the psychotherapist drug and alcohol counselor, and he basically knows everything about addiction and mental health issues in the US and beyond. Making me talking tim today about how the pandemic has been affected addiction issues to get help if you're struggling and how to recognize if you might have a problem with drugs or alcohol. Bruce Dave. Thanks so much for joining us on mental yours and welcome from across the pond. My first question was basically because obviously as I mentioned, we're in London. You're in the US, it such different situation in terms of addiction, mental health, and obviously the pandemic to get started. Could you give kind of a brief overview of the reality of addiction in the US? How serious the problem is that how widespread is a? The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation calls addiction the number one health problem in the US. If we look at the the number of prescription opiates that are consumed in the entire world The United States consumes more than eighty percent of them. We. have. You know we've always had an alcohol problem for a percentage of our population. we we developed enough and phetamine mean and a cocaine problem over the last. Twenty years, and in the last five, six years Oh actually even a little longer. An opiate problem has has become. Our most serious addiction challenge. Kind of the most common addiction issue that you see people coming into your center with. It it's interesting. I've run Iran the largest treatment center in Las. Vegas of. Gene. Years. And now as a private center and they're absolutely opiates or over my last three, four years, they're opiates was the number one drug of choice that clients had presented to solutions recovery without the opiate use disorder their primary. Primary substance. Now I work at an indigent facility in in downtown. Las Vegas where. More than half of our clients are homeless. And what's interesting is with this demographic, there's a much higher methamphetamine use. Would say my number one. Substance of for clients is nothin vitamin with opiates and alcohol running for a close second place. That's really interesting I. Think What was interesting that you said kind of opiates have been coming up over the lost six years because for me, it's felt like the coverage has been really recent like only in the last couple of years, we taught it to the opioid crisis this being a sudden kind of unexpected issue but you're saying it's been building for a long time. It has. Interestingly, fourteen years ago I was running the largest health insurance company in the state. And I remember in my last. My last year or two I remember looking at pharmacy reports and we were all scratching our heads saying what is this Oxycontin and why did it not show up two years ago and now I remember when across the ten million dollar mark at the Insurance Company for monthly use so it really begins began spiking. Thirteen fourteen years ago. It became. Newsworthy in fashionable. Six seven years ago, and now we're a were still squarely in an opiate epidemic.
Discussing Dota 2 & Team League Models - With John Yao - CEO at Team Secret
"So can you talk about like the you know the foundation of take grit out is different to say traditionally sports organization you know how the how the play is kind of at the center of everything. Sure sure you know when I look out in the ecosystem and not everything is like this right but a lot of teams are It's a it's kind of split where a lot of teams are player own operated in lead right which which is really good for content creation engaging with the community that kind of thing but usually like on the business side economy falters. And then you know you have a lot of new entrance into east sportswear. It's a very traditional business executive-led right whether it's you know a private Equity Company that invests eastwards. Put say a leader in place or someone from traditional. Traditional. Media The comes in place and weeds on these sports team. Where connection to the fan base in the audience is not so great. And generalizing here, right there's all different kinds of other other models I'm for us. We kind of saw this happening and what we wanted to do was to say, okay, you know, I, come from a background of traditional business. I can come run the business, build the business, but we wanted to also have very authentic and have a huge amount of player lead influence into how we build the brand into how he engaged with the fan base and the community and so that's why you know working with the DOE team has kind of foundation we said, let's build out team secret originally adopted team, but we can expand the business. We can build it into an actual business rather than just a, you know a player T-. Even today you know we. on the business side, you know run the business but on the ownership front we have some players that have ownership in the business and are also involved in the day today activities. You know we've been lucky enough to have on the PODCAST and scraped content with a few kind of like OJ's is the industry especially you know you had. We've had God's. All the you know he's being paramount in in a lot of commentary and building the same globally and we had pay p day kind like the shining light out of trying to build anymore it's America We've had unloader from Sweden as well and I guess you guys have another one especially, which is in the interim with poppy. So I'd love to I'd love to talk from your perspective around a lot of my discussion with paper day especially was around the business structure of the way that daughter to works versus are other Games. So there's like an article that came out about a Singapore tame, which is just disbanded was like the the shining stuff out of that region and. One of the major reasons they said that it that it disbanded his Ju to just a lack of understanding or the lack of support from valve in the to infrastructure it's it's you know it's great presence and cradle content around how you know the DOJ to international is the largest single single price police boats tournament. You know thirty plus million dollars in the first place team will often walk away with ten million dollars in the pocket and it's fantastic. You Ajay and you win those inter but it's it's not great if you don't qualify for the international or you know if you want to rely on something other than simply pros money so be interested in talking about. How do you say that the dietary market obviously guys legal agents Tuesday say by Candidate that franchise very strict model of detaining applying onset and Thomson indicts. You've got all that structure heady. This is done until you, which is just really all over the place but but massive priciples. Yeah I mean I think there are pros and cons of both models I think in. League of legends at the the model tends to be more Even across more equitable across tons of opportunities where all the teams and I think in Doda, it's very much like feast or famine I if you know. If you look at all the teams right from previously is it's like. Either you're a top four team and you. kind of break even or slash make a small profit or you're not a top four team and you're just like losing money all the time. Basically note right and it's like the the price was a little bit of a Mirage because. In Doda, the majority, the vast majority of the price will go to the players and this is not knock on the players because I think the players are super telling that they deserve everything that they that they earn right But outside of price full, there's not a huge amount of other opportunities except for direct sponsorship. For teams actually drive right and you need teams because you know. Not every player is like some players are very mental to be in contact creators influences on all that stuff but the vast majority players I know just WanNa, play I. WanNa play, and so in order for Doda and Doda brands to to build into sort of products. And to market the players into engage and build the audience and do all these things. You'd Orquesta do that right? Because the players are not going to do it themselves and they didn't WanNa do themselves they want to they want they WANNA play right? They want to figure out strategies they want perfect game. And so you need to have an ecosystem around as supporting structure around that to be able to enable them to do that as well as. Create this product around Doda so that the fans can engage in consume it. And I think the I think the finances did the structure Doda is is dangerous because you know the the the kitchen seen not not super well supported even in the tier one scene beyond top four teams I don't think you're doing too well. and you'd see you know teams exit. You see teams go in and out. I'm for these reasons because it's like you either you're winning all the time and you're kind of stable from that because you have some price earnings or. You know you're just like middle of the pack number seven, number, eight, I, I don't think you're doing too well. You're really relying on brand sponsorships and things
Online therapy is thriving now, but can it remain viable?
"If you've ever been in the market for a new therapist, you know the drill I ask your doctor or a trusted friend for some recommendations next search online to verify they take your health insurance. Then when you finally find someone hope that there is don't get wide with horror once you start talking about your childhood otherwise he gets weird and you have to start the process all over again. But like most things. These days a combination of technology and covid nineteen have disrupted mental healthcare. Only this time that disruption may have actually made things better now that in-person counseling is largely lockdown online therapy. APPS. With their simplified pipelines and virtual options are looking more appealing than ever in May popular option talk space told The Washington Post that it's volume was up sixty five percent since the beginning of the pandemic rival better help told Mashal the business has doubled during the shutdown and that more than ten thousand people per day sign up for it service. Deciding which services right for you depends on what you're looking for better help offers unlimited therapy sessions while talk spaces offerings while not unlimited include psychiatric help in addition to traditional talk therapy, the online therapy landscape has changed significantly from the beginning of the year in March. The federal government issued waivers allowing insurance programs like Medicare and Medicaid to cover telehealth services for a variety of treatments including for mental health care and many private insurers lined up to allow coverage to the combination of lower cost online therapy sessions, and. Expanded Insurance Coverage helped more people afford the help they needed during an anxious time but success is not without its obstacles. The companies that create these APPS aren't just altruistic healthcare providers. Their tech companies to that means they need to be able to scale their software for growth and they need to do it fast for that they need funding talk spaces raised one, hundred, ten, million dollars to fuel its growth better help was acquired by Telemedicine Tele Doc in twenty fifteen even so each company is facing some growing pains. First, there's the issue of the industry's uncertain future. The relaxed regulations in Medicare waivers that allowed this growth may not be long-term wants the pandemic has passed will the regulations remain in place maybe Maybe, not the other issue is finding enough therapists to keep up with demand. Each platform is actively recruiting mental health professionals through its website and employment advertising. But the hiring bar is high therapists must be licensed in their state and have at least three years of experience. They're paid as independent contractors by the platform verge reports and the competition is tough. There are dozens of online therapy. APPS now, competitor Ginger has raised one hundred, twenty million in its latest round of funding secured in August CIGNA ventures. In Kaiser, permanente ventures both participated giving the startup, some important insurance and healthcare provider muscle in the Mex- online therapy does make mental health care more affordable and accessible, but questions remain about how the highly regulated world of Healthcare Meshes with the grow grow world of technology companies. One thing is certain demand for mental health care is only growing between the pandemic, the recession social unrest in a slew of natural disasters. Now, there's plenty of anxiety around.

His Liquor Brand Aviation American gin is being acquired by the world's largest spirits business on Monday. Reynolds. Announced that Dr. Joe is buying the Startup Jim. Maker for up to six hundred, ten, million dollars the the fourteen billion dollar owner of brands like Johnnie Walker Whisky Tanqueray Gin and Guinness Al among others. The deal is a coup for Reynolds a Rakish forty-three-year-old celebrity actor best known for his performances a superhero with a twisted sense of humor in the twenty sixteen movie deadpool. It's also a testament to reynolds star turn as a copywriter. Reynolds bought an ownership stake in aviation in two thousand eighteen and became its brand ambassador. He applied his quirky provocative sense of humor to the task to here's just one example remember the Peleton ad that went viral in a bad way the one where the poor Peleton wife played by actress Monica, Rees appear to be exercising against her will to satisfy her sexist tons desire for skinny spouse. Well, Reynolds decided to help his career and Tro Peleton at the same time he cast releasing an ad for. In it, she in two friends are sitting at a bar, their nursing MARTINIS. She looked downcast while her two friends look on with concern. The peleton wife then downs, the entire Martini and the friends pass there's to her the implication of course, is that she has left the suddenly abusive husband on social media just to make sure we all got the joke Reynolds wrote Hashtag exercise bike not included naturally that ad went viral in a good way. It was cheeky ads like these along with Reynolds thirty, six, million instagram followers. And fans on other social media platforms that helped aviation sales skyrocket revenues grew in triple digits in both twenty, eighteen and twenty nineteen making it what Fast Company called the fastest growing super premium gin and the World Diario who's Gordon's?

The US will pay up to $10 million if you can ID a foreign election hacker
"Provide information on a foreign hackers who's been meddling with the US election and you could receive up to ten million US dollars as a reward. The US State Department says the reward will go to and I quote information leading to the identification of or location of any person who works with or for a foreign government for the purpose of interfering with US elections through certain illegal cyber activities well to explain that and tell us more. Let's hear from Elizabeth Bro. She leads modern deterrence program at here in London. Welcome back to the program Elizabeth and just describe what exactly the US State Department is doing. A good money on at. This is really fascinating program. So but the State Department is doing is essentially offering the same sort of rewards for people who Reports. People who who who are planning to interfere with elections in the same way that's the US government does with people who report terrorist. So it's it's essentially bounty on election interferes information. So how do you go about catching? A Hacker D I mean who we talking about here I mean he's he's going to be claiming the prize to begin to look at counter hackers. Is it a large authorities large private sector organizations or even a teenager in his bedroom? I think it may well be teenager in his bedroom so I think the most likely. Recipient of this money is somebody working with hackers who? May have been who who are in the process of interfering with US elections and we should remember it's not just hackers. It's people who are Spreading this information as well. It aimed at undermining confidence in elections and we should remember the people who are doing it are. Oprah are often operating on behalf of another government but they don't work for the government and that is the problem in the Western governments have it's so hard to to catch them because they are can relive just be people in their bedrooms. Working survivor freelance arrangement with a country, and so people like me have long been thinking about how D- How do we deter how how can we make sure that they don't engage in that behaviour I must say as a European. I just never thought of of the option of offer offering a bounty to to people willing to turn them in. But here this is what? We are getting or this is what what US government is proposing exactly. What does it suggest about the way that the Americans are actually trying to catch these people who who are trying to meddle with the elections. There is some suggestion that you know given the large amount of money ten million dollars, and that the United States might not quite be up to the job themselves. But so this is the interesting thing right I mean when you offer bounded it sort of indicates that you've tried other means and you're not getting anywhere and that's why. Are So often used by the governments to to catch terrorists because it's The government has failed them tend to catch him in other ways, but with election interference to fear of the ways that have usually been sought about the cyber. Cyber defender. Let's say in in in our Western countries. Keeping the country safe and also signaling to to perpetrators would be prepetrators if they commit their offensive acts that would be punishment but clearly, it's not the now for the recent, we can see it's not enough is that These activities continue. So clearly the the the the would be attackers and they and their is don't feel deterred by what's currently happening in the the problem was for the defender is that if you? If you're too heavy handed if you attack back than Jose escalates. It could it could really get out of control. So this is a completely different. Take on and I think it's it's one those Soviet uniquely American with this long tradition of of bounties and something that the property ripping countries won't engage in but but it has worked with with in some cases with terrorists that the US government was was trying to find. So I mean it sounds frankly it sounds completely crazy. Let's see they even Be Able to locate a few hackers. This way Elizabeth, how much evidence is said that the current US elections has already seen some international involvement and interference. So it's It's it's hard to quantify and the the reason that this is so difficult to serve you don't even need to. Successfully interfere with an election in order for that election to be to be tainted or poisoned or compromised. What's it's enough for people to have the impression that that's the election is being. Tinkered with by somebody and and that's the really frightening thing. So that was They've been very service both. Opponents both in the US and elsewhere that people whether such and such election in that country. was interfered with, for example, by the Russians, and and for something in here in UK, there was a recent poll where. Forty nine percent of people in the UK thought that rushing to with the brexit referendum. So it doesn't really matter whether Russia defeated with Brexit Brentford with mattresses at half of the population in the UK thanks that rushing to fit and then the referendum is already tainted by that and that is that makes this whole thing so difficult. So it's it and that's why program like this may not have much. Effect because what matters is people think in other countries interfering
US offers up to $10 million reward for info on foreign hackers interfering in upcoming election
"The US State Department is also offering bounties of up to ten million dollars under its rewards for justice. Program for information leading to the identification or location of any person who works with or for a foreign government for the purpose of interfering with US elections through certain illegal cyber activities. The tone of the announcement suggests that foggy bottom is more interested in hackers than it is in influencers. The text says quote persons engaged in certain militias, cyber operations targeting election or campaign infrastructure may be subject to prosecution under the computer fraud and Abuse Act which criminalizes unauthorized computer intrusions and other forms of fraud related to computers among other offenses. The statute prohibits unauthorized accessing of computers to obtain information and transmitted to unauthorized recipients. So they've got their eye on dachshund more than they do on trolling although one imagines that if you had a hot tip that someone was working for a troll farm in Saint Petersburg or Shenzhen, they'd be willing to listen to you.
Garmin reportedly paid millions to resolve its recent ransomware attack
"Garment Hack. Lawrence Abrams bleeping computer as we know, as always had a strong interest in ransomware. So I'm not surprised that his coverage of the Garmin ransomware attack was the most detailed of any I've seen nor that he's had access to some. Insiders who have reached out to provide him some extra tasty bits. Among. Other things an employee inside Garmon informed him that the initial ransom demand was for ten million dollars. Oh. Yeah. Holy Moly. Dead. Dead million dollars. Okay. We don't know what ransom was finally paid. But it seems more certain than ever. That Garmon did pay up Lawrence wrote. After a four day outage, Garmon suddenly announced that they were starting to restore services and it made us suspect that they paid the ransom to receive a decrypt her. then. Last Saturday. Lawrence posted today bleeping computer gained access to an execute, -able created by the garment it department to Decrypt a workstation and then install a variety of security software on the machine. Since wasted locker. That's the ransomware is an enterprise targeting ransomware with no known weaknesses in their encryption algorithm. Decrypt, her cannot be made for free. And remember that bleeping computer has has been sort of a focal point four. The less than well designed ransom. Where mistakes were found in the encryption which allowed for the creation of a no charge, dijk crypt door and those have been organized and are are and can be found through bleeping computer. So he said to obtain a working decryption key Garmon must have paid the ransom to the attackers and he said this is where he said is not known how much was paid, but as previously stated, an employee told bleeping computer that the original ransom demand was for ten million dollars. When extracted this restoration package? This is the one that they that they received. A copy of that had been prepared by garments it department. This. Restoration package includes various security software installers, a decryption key, a wasted locker decrypt door, and a script to run them all. When executed the restoration package, decrypt the computer and then preps the machine with security software. Garments stripped contains a time stamp of July Twenty Fifth Twenty Twenty, which indicates that the ransom was paid either on the twenty fourth or twenty fifth. Using the sample of wasted locker from the garment attack, that is the actual. The actual ransomware from the garment attack bleeping computer encrypted did a virtual machine. And tested the decrypt her to see if it would decrypt their files. He said in our test, the decrypt. Decrypt files. So Interesting was that the package received by bleeping computer included references to both the cyber security firm Ms Soft E.. M.. S., I S O. F T. R. M, m cysts, soft sorry. Emphasis soft, and the ransomware negotiations service cove wear. When bleeping computer subsequently reached out to cove where they were told that they do not comment on any ransomware incidents reported in the media. And similarly emphasise soft toll bleeping computer that they could not comment on any cases that they create decryption tools and are not involved in ransom payments. Brett callow a threat analyst at. Mc Soft said, I cannot comment on specific cases, but generally speaking emphasis soft has no involvement whatsoever in negotiating or transacting ransom payments. We simply create decryption tools. Okay. Now, that's interesting news. So it might seem odd for a reputable security firms such as m soft to to have anything to do with ransomware, but they have an interesting angle. As we know, the decryption side of the ransomware mess sometimes receives much less attention from the bad guys who need to create the decrypt her Dan, the encryption side. Consequently. The decrypt have tended historically to be buggy to crash or to for some reason, fail to fully undo the damage that they had originally done despite. Having, received a valid key. So that's where M soft comes in. They reverse engineer questionable ransomware decrypt. There's for which the decryption key is known. To create a more robust and reliable decrypt her for a victims systems. Emphasis soft ransomware recovery services, page states if the ransomware. If the ransom has been paid, but the attacker provided decrypt is slow or faulty. We can extract the decryption code and create a custom built solution that decrypt up to fifty percent faster with less risk of data damage or loss. So. This also explains why the decryption package garment finally used also contained legitimate security software. That extra security software along with improved decrypt, her may have been provided by emphasis soft or may have been. Put together by garments it. And of course, as we mentioned last week, now that evil corporate has been attributed as the creator of wasted locker and has been placed on the US sanctions list for using dry decks to cause more than one hundred, million dollars in financial damages. Paying this ransom could lead to hefty fines from the government. So do these sanctions sources familiar with cove where have told bleeping computer that the negotiation company has placed wasted locker on their own restricted list starting in early July and will not be handed handling negotiations for related attacks.
Coronavirus Impact on the Food Industry: Cameron Mitchell Restaurants CEO
"Joining us right now on the topic of small business and what he's seeing is Cameron Mitchell. He's the founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which owns nearly sixty establishments across the United States and Cameron. It's great to see you. It's been a while since we've spoken good morning break plagiary back with you today. So. The first time we talked to you was in the midst of the shutdown when all of your restaurants had been closed down and you laid out a plan for what you were hoping to see. Two weeks ago on March third, I was in Washington DC to meet with my bankers and I expressed them what a great start year we had were up seven percent same store sales record profitability for the first two months of the year. This was March third tomorrow I believe March Eighteenth we will be completely shut down I laid off forty, two hundred people on Monday. The last time we talked to you things we're looking pretty good business was was back and was booming. I think we're going to survive, but it's going to be a while before we get to the hospital we expect to be open in hopefully back to full employment by the end of June or into or end of July somewhere in that neighborhood. So what's happening right now? The best way equate it to is we're in a hurricane in the first. Landfall, the hurricane was back in March fifteenth and. It was is detrimental as it was terrible. It's was We end up getting the money and we're able to get out and get open and it was a lifeline. We would not be here today if it wasn't for the original P P P loan and June came and sales, we're doing pretty good. We're about seventy five percent of last year sales were feeling very optimistic and and when I came to realize is we are really just in the eye of the storm and then July the beginning July head and and the case counts rising. Across the country and met, metropolitan. Areas Rolling back opening guidelines and in further restrictions on our business and sales fell down to now fifty percent of last year and that is just not sustainable. So here we are today you know August second and I feel just as nervous about the future as I did back in the beginning of March when Corona virus was coming over the horizon. So we're looking for a second round of P P P to help us get through the other side and and help us sustain for the future so. And the thing that we're hearing mostly Congress is about the stimulus checks, the unemployment but there are thousands and thousands of businesses like ours out there in the country they're hurting terribly at fifty percent decline a forty percent decline sales we cannot survive. We're losing between five, hundred thousand and a million dollars a month, and we need the additional P P P dolorous in a in a terrible way and you know the the curb puzzle is for a two million dollar cap on that which. last time was ten million dollars and so for a company like ours and many others that reduction of eight million dollars just when we need it, the most is is very difficult for us. Camera now is the decline in your business coming mostly because states or local municipalities have have forced you to not open as much into close things down or much of the decline is coming from people who Are, afraid to go out what and how would you measure that a difference while it's both clearly when you have a reduction in capacity from use spell. Example Beverly Hills we were closed all restaurants California closed for indoor. New York City we were not allowed to open our whole restaurant that was just for the Patio Philadelphia. We're not allowed to open that was got rolled back from August I now to September first. So some of our businesses are not even open yet So but the main driver of that reduction of sales is the increase case cow corona virus around the country and people becoming more and more nervous about going to restaurants even though there's no science dates that that says inherently restaurants, Kobe case outbreaks, her Dr Been Driven by restaurants seating. Indoor and outdoor see. Cameron. What? What are you doing in terms of your relationship with your landlords? particularly in some of those places, the restaurants haven't even reopened yet. Are you getting any forgiveness or any easing of things from them? Well, that's the thing becky you know we had almost all of our landlords help out in some way or another not all but some or most they should say, but that money is just a simple deferral that's So we have an additional three, million dollars we got deferred in. April May and June but that money has to be paid back over various schedules over the next two years. That's just additional debt on the balance sheet, and we come out of this without P P p. one of the things cameras restaurants we built three or four restaurants a year, and if we're saddled with millions of dollars debt if and when we get out of this I don't see a building an aiding the economic rebound in the country in Twenty One and twenty two point further were saddled with all this debt. What have you heard from the the senators you've spoken with on this? I've spoken. Personally to both are centers in the state of Ohio and. They understand our plate and and but I, think they're. All. The negotiation right now over the six hundred, a week stimulus for unemployment benefits. So I don't think it's getting much attention that it needs right now and I hope by the time we get this bill and some sort of agreement between both parties on this bill that we can get this P P P round two stimulus, which has one hundred and ninety billion dollars earmarked for it, which should be more than enough for these companies passed the stress test that show they actually needed. To keep with the original PCP levels P P one camera I want to thank you for the update We we have to check in with you again soon, but we appreciate your time and wish you good
What's Hype, What's Real on the Latest in AI
"Hi Everyone. Welcome to this week's. Sixteen minutes I'm zonal your host, and this is our show where we talk about the headlines what's in the news and where we are on the long arc of tech trends were back from our holiday break, and so this we're covering all the reasons and ongoing as around the topic, of GP, three, the natural language processing based text predictor from the San. Francisco Research and Development Company opened ai the actually released their paper on. GPT three in late May. But only released their broader commercial API a couple of weeks ago. So we're seeing a lot of excitement and activity around that in particular although it's all being called GP T. Three. So we're going to do one of our explainer episodes of the two x explainer. Going into what it really is how it works why it matters broader implications and questions while teasing apart, what type, what's real as is the premise of the show but before I introduce our expert, let me just quickly summarize some of the highlights. So while Gpt, three is technically a text predictor that actually reduces what's possible because of course, words and software are simply coding of Human Thought to borrow a phrase from. Chris. Dickson which means a lot more things are possible. So we're seeing a note these are all cherry picked examples believable forum pose comments, press releases poetry. screenplays, articles somebody who wrote an entire article headlined open is GP Three may be the biggest thing since bitcoin and then revealed midway that he didn't actually write the article but that gpt three did we're also seeing strategy documents like for business CEO's and advice written entirely gpt three and not just words. But we're seeing people design using words to write code for designing websites and other designs. Someone even built a plugin again, all of it showing the Trans mutability of thoughts to words to code to design and so on, and then someone made a search engine that can return. Answers and you are ells in response to quote ask me anything which has anyone who's been in NLP space knows I was at park when we spun off powers that back in the day, and that's always been sort of a holy grail of question answering which you know all about to having worked in this world frank on thou let me introduce you are expert in this episode Frank Chances written a lot about ai including a primer on ai deep learning and machine learning a pulse check on ai what's working what's not a micro site with resources for how to Get started practically and do something with your own product and your own company, and then reflecting on jobs and humanity and working together. You can find all of that on our website frank to start things off. What's your favorite example of gpt three so far mine is founding principles for a religion written and gpt three. I'd love to hear your favorite and also your quick take on the excitement to start us off before we dig a bit deeper favorite out of the whole thing is it's doing arithmetic. So Ascot, what's twenty-three plus sixty seven like just arbitrary two digit arithmetic. This is a natural language processing. Model and so basically, it got trained by feeding it lots and lots of text and out of that, it's figuring out we think how to do arithmetic, which is very, very surprising because you don't think that exists in texts the excitement. Potentially is promising signs of progress towards general artificial intelligence. So today if you want to do very, highly accurate. natural language processing, you build a bespoke model. You have your own custom architecture you feed it a ton of data. What gpt three shows is that they train this model once and then they throw at a whole bunch of natural language processing tasks like fill in the blank or inference or translation, and without retraining it at all. They're getting really good results compared to finely tuned models. Before we even though into teasing apart, what type what's real? Let's first talk about the it what is GP three? So we have two things one, we have a machine learning model cpt is actually an acronym stands for generative pre trained transformer will go through all those insect. But thing one is we have a P- retrained machine learning model that's optimized to do a wide variety of natural language processing tasks like reading a wikipedia article and answering questions from it or guessing what the ending of a story should be or so on insulin. So we have a machine learning model. The thing that people are playing with a Pi that allows developers to essentially ask questions. Of that model. So instead of giving you the model and you program it to do what you want, they're giving you selective access via the API one of the reasons they're doing this is that most people don't have the compute infrastructure to even train the model there's been estimates that if you wanted to train the model from scratch, it costs something like five to ten million dollars of cloud compute time. That's a big big model and say like they don't give out the model and then to the controversy around this thing when they released the first version was they were worried that if they just gave the model out, people would do nefarious things with it like. Fake News articles that you would just like Saturate bomb the web than so they're like look we want to be responsible with this thing, and so we'll get access via. API. Then we know exactly who's using it and then the the I can be a bit of a throttle on what can and can't do
J.Lo's Money Moves
"Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez not only are they dominating the real estate game you buys but they recently dropped reported three hundred million bucks on a bid for the New York mets and as if they. Needed any more side-hustle. They've also reportedly invested in Viagra wellness startup. How much is too much Nina Hunter, how much telling me? Well, this is the thing I was looking at all the money that they were spitting on these properties I. Think like they're selling this property, but they also have like a ten million dollar house in Bel? Air They have a twenty eight million dollar house. In the Hamptons like it's insane but then I looked at their net worth and I think a rod was I really it was worth some coin but he's worked almost as much as her. He's worth like three, hundred, million dollars and she's over three, hundred and fifty million. So. They're almost a billion dollars together and also when they fail three hundred online, you always add fifty more just between us. Is. A little more. That's the case. Then according to these websites, I'm worth fifty, million and five, hundred, thousand dollars. Which? Now, ladies want to get in. Now's the chance fifty, million, five, hundred I do think there is this weird world where like of course they're investing, they want to go ahead and use their money helps having three hundred million dollars in a bank account making very little interest as opposed to investing in something that actually believe in like. The mets because no one believes in the mets but John. Lewis State is going to go up like crazy always and they're investing in areas that are not going to go down. It makes sense. It's just a matter of how much money do you
July Mailbag with Jason Moser
"The. Multiple answers I'm out Southwick and I'm joined, is always by broke camp. Personal Finance expert here at the Motley Fool. Hey, BRO, well! Hello Alison. It's the July mailbag where we answer your questions and this month it's with the help of multiple analyst Jason Moser. Should you buy a house now? What is modern portfolio theory and also here Jason's thoughts on a lot of stocks all that and more on this week's episode of Molly fully answers. Jason thanks coming back. you know I mean i. told you you invite me. I'M GONNA. Be here every single time. Thanks for having me back. I mean we appreciate it because we know you're a busy man, and so we do appreciate that you carve out time for us in our little show, don't. Always always make time for those important people in my life rule number one make time for allison and Bro I love. It sounds like a good one to me. Everybody wins. All right well, I guess we should just get into it, so the first question comes from Darren I've subscribed to the full for over a year and I'm really pleased with the service. I would like to know your thoughts about my holdings in Shop Affi- I've bought several times over the last three years, and it's now over thirty five percent of my portfolio and I. Don't know if I should continue holding or trimmed down. What would you advise a good problem to have I was gonna say that exact same thing? That's a good problem have? In a very glad, you have subscribed to our services in your really pleased. That's that's what we aim to to do. We aim to please help you make money and so yeah. This is one of those situations that we will find ourselves in from time to time as investors. A nice problem to have but something you do need to address at some point because it is going to be a little bit different for everybody. In so coming from the perspective of I, also own shop, a Fi stock in it's it's a wonderful investment. It certainly is taking up a bigger. Part of my portfolio a not at thirty five percent where you are. I think for me. It really does boil down to. That sleeping at night test in other words, you need to be able to go to sleep at night without worrying about this kind of stuff, and if you feel like shop, a Fi represents too much. Of your portfolio if you feel like you're overly allocated their, then, you may need to consider pulling it back a little, but now I mean it's. It's I think it's always important. Note you know. It's a big difference between building up a position buying a position to make this size to make this type of allocation in your portfolio. It's another thing entirely to have position grow into beat into becoming that size i. mean that that is that is in a little bit of a different dynamic there, so people all the different ways, some sometimes folks will, they will just sort of looking at it from the house money, concept or you. You just sell enough shares to recoup your initial investment, and then you let the rest of it go. Some people are perfectly fine with thirty five percent. Some people are not. They want a pair back so i. do think you need to kind of figure out what helps you sleep at night I do think that shop by a great business. I think the biggest risk in only shop, if I right now is valuation, just because it's dominating, it's space, but it's not making any money yet, and it's probably going to be a little while until they do so that valuation risk is there, but ultimately yeah I think determine. Where you feel most comfortable with it, and if you feel like you need to put a little bit of that money off the table, and he thirty five percents a lot, certainly very understandable. If they've said something you need to do if you do decide to pair it back a little bit. You've made multiple purchases, so you can identify the shares to sell to manage the tax consequence if this isn't a brokerage account and not an IRA. All right next question comes from Steven. If you are forced into unemployment, you are paying federal income taxes on unemployment payments are not contributing to social security nor to Medicare. How does this affect your future calculation of social security benefits and can one contribute to the social security fund during unemployment to mitigate any adverse effects on benefits, it is a little bit adding insult to injury, but you do owe federal income taxes on your unemployment benefits, and if your state charges has a state income tax, you probably have to pay state tax on that, although there are a handful of states that exempt unemployment benefits, so that's good news. And by the way you, you could have taxes withheld from your unemployment benefits you file. This form called form w four V. if you want, they withhold ten percent, or you can do quarterly estimated payments if you wanNA avoid that big tax bill at the end of the year, but if you're strapped for cash is probably just better to get the money now worried about your taxes later Eh. Stephen notes out. You do not pay payroll taxes. Those are the things that go into social security and Medicare so. So. It could result in a lower social security benefit, however, keep in mind that social security is based on your thirty five highest earning years, so if you enter the workforce at say twenty two and you work until you're mid to late sixties. That's more than forty years where the working so hopefully. If you miss out, if this year is not so good somewhere among those other forty, five or so years, you've had thirty five really good year so that this year won't be that big of a deal. So it probably will be okay. And then to address the last question. Unfortunately, no, you cannot make voluntary contributions to social security. There is at least one academic working paper out there. That suggested that people could buy into social security by like extra credits as opposed to contributing to your 401k, but so far that has not been passed by Congress I had an ex. Question comes from Sam. I heard to stocks discussed on another full podcast. When I read articles about them, it mentions they are thinly traded. I have two questions one I'm sure my position would still be quite small so I think I'd still be able to get in and out, but are there other things I should think about when it's a thinly traded stock and question number two. Is there a certain amount of? Daily volume you like to look for when considering a stock foreign investment. What volume do you want to see to not be? Quote thinly traded stock. Yes very good question in thinly traded stock just refers to the either the amount of shares or the dollar volume of shares that would trade on any given. Market Day and so. The. Thinly traded stock. The the problem is that you may not necessarily able to buy and or sell at the prices. You necessarily think you might be able to in other words when you look at a stock's price and you're looking through the. What what's going on throughout the day on the market, you'll see that did ask spread, which is essentially the bid. Ask spread is it's what someone's willing to pay for the stock versus what someone is asking to be paid for the stock? Because you know you have a buyer and a seller on on in every transaction they're. Normally most cases, these business business bread is very tiny, the couple of pennies maybe for most stocks because they're. They're heavily traded right there. There are plenty of dollar volume. But there are a lot of smaller companies small caps in particular in in you know a micro cap, specifically that don't necessarily meet these kinds of thresholds, and so you definitely have to be aware of that now I'll go back in time just a little bit, too. When we were running the service here at the fool called million dollar portfolios Roman Romani portfolio that we help manage members, and it was never really a problem, but we did have a condition in there. We were always looking for at least ten million dollars in average. Trading volume total daily volume now understand I'm not saying the number of shares saying the amount of money so basically shares times price, but we're always looking for at least ten million dollars. That wasn't set in stone it. It was an idea for us. It wasn't ever really a problem because we had a very diversified portfolio with a number of different types of companies, but when you're looking for smaller companies, you would've just keep that in mind that did ask. Spread is is something that just because it says the stock is twenty dollars. That doesn't necessarily mean you'll pay twenty dollars if there is a a big spread there between the bid, and the ask in so I think whenever you're considering stocks that have any lighter trading volume or thinly traded stock. Just be sure to use limit orders. Limit Orders of let us stipulate the price that you are willing to pay for or that you're willing to. To accept a if you're selling a limit, order is just a really good way to protect yourself from any unwanted surprise thinly traded stocks. You might not always necessarily get them when you want them, so you might have to lead that limited are in there for a little while, but but a limit order is a great way to protect you from any unwanted surprises. Next question comes from Randall. I'm in my late thirties now, but earlier in my life. I was very very bad with my money. Collection Calls Welfare and bankruptcy or not strangers to me. I've been at the bottom then I met the love of my life, and she convinced me to turn things around ten, and a half years later and I have done a complete one eighty, I took control of our finances rebuilt my credit and started investing and listening to all you find folks all. I opened it investing account with the goal of saving and building enough a down payment on a home. I'm happy to say we've now reached that goal. I recently sold at a profit because I didn't want that. Money tied up in the market. If we are close to needing it for a house, but now that we're here, I'm not sure what to do. We currently rent a basement apartment and our neighbors general living situation are less than ideal to put it mildly. So, we're champing at the bit to jump into the housing market that being said the experts have been calling for a drop in the housing market for a while, and that was before the pandemic hit now I'm worried that if we buy right away a year or two or three from now, interest rates will spike, and we could be put in a difficult situation. I live near Toronto. Canada or the housing market is already highly inflated in relation to the rest of the country should I be worried? While Randall first of all congrats on turning your financial life around love hearing success stories like that so good job on that. So I'll start with my standard answer with the rent versus buy decision, and that is just pull up spreadsheet and compare the all in cost of renting, including what you could earn on the money that use for down payment versus the all in cost of buying including the opportunity cost of putting down payment as opposed to having invested as well as insurance and taxes and maintenance, and all that stuff and project, where you might be in five to ten years based on various scenarios on what happens to stocks, if you. Rent an invest the down payment versus what happens to? What you'd look like depending on where home prices go. Generally speaking. If mortgage rates go up, that could way down on real estate prices we did see mortgage rates. Go Up for a bit a few years ago, but the housing market did find, but you could certainly envision a scenario where rates went much much higher, making houses, much less affordable and prices would have to adjust. But I don't expect that to happen anytime soon. I think we're. GonNa have low rates for awhile, but beyond that I don't know I've given up trying to predict where interest rates are going or even paying attention to people who try to predict where interest rates are going, so who knows? That said since you live in Canada. I thought I'd check. In where rates are these days and I and I got a brief reminder that things are actually different in Canada so I did a little bit of research. And then realize I had reach out to someone who knows, I reached out to Canadian Motley fool analysts Jim Gillies, and he had some thoughts so first of all just for you non-canadians out there. It is really different so in America. We get this thirty year mortgage than we have the same payment for thirty years. It's fixed. They don't have that in Canada. What's the most common is a twenty five year? But only the first few years or fixed. And then adjusts so in that context you can understand why Randall is worried about interest rates going up because over the next depending on which alone he gets the most popular is a five year fixed, and then you basically have to go get a new loan probably. So that put that in context, a little more, but also Toronto, really is crazy expensive. Vs from the end of last year that put it as the most overvalued real estate market in the world behind Munich. As Jim pointed out in our call here in the US we had our housing peak in two, thousand, six, two, thousand seven, and then we had what he called a reset, which is basically prices came down significantly candidate and have that slight downturn at home prices, but then they just kept on going up, so it really is different there, so when Jim explain all this to me, the difference in mortgages and the difference in home prices. Frankly he was inclined to say to this guy. You Might WanNa rent for while more and see what happens, but he also had the good advice of okay. What if you buy in prices? Come Down Fifteen percent twenty percent. What if they come down to a point where he upside down? You owe more than the home is worth. Are you okay with that? If. You're okay with that. Maybe it's okay to do that. But it certainly sounds like dicey situation than if someone were telling me like I'm thinking of do this in Dubuque Iowa or something like that. couple of other differences. In case you're curious about Canada in the US. Your mortgage is portable in Canada south. You Buy A. Get the five year mortgage, but then move get to take the mortgage with you for the next house and interest is not tax deductible. US Look at you, Robert, broke? Camp Can Canadian real estate experts there you go. Next! Question comes from Chris. I was on twitter the other day and saw that one of your contributors Brian Feroldi tweeted that he doesn't believe in a long list of technical trading terms and then modern portfolio theory. Can you help me understand what not believing an MP? T with mean this? He believed that diversification doesn't reduce risk. Also every financial adviser I've ever talked to his preached empty, so I would love to hear the counterargument. Jason you're not Brian for all the. Question I am not Brian for all the do get the talk of Brian Pretty good bit though. I I must admit I. Don't know what he said here in regard to modern portfolio theory and all of these technical trading arms. But I think I can take a guess. Generally speaking I agree with them, and I think you could sit there and look up the portfolio theory in you know read about it as much as you want. Just go to google modern portfolio theory, and you can dig right in there, but in a nutshell ultimately, what modern portfolio theory is the intention behind it? It's meant to reduce risk while maximizing returns. It assumes that investors don't like risk. They prefer less risky portfolios to riskier ones in order to achieve a certain level of return so right there. I kind of kind of lost me right there because I don't believe that every ever investors risk averse I think some investors have a very. Healthy, appetite for risk, and frankly I would say I got a pretty high tolerance for risk when it comes to investing, made it just because of what I do for a living but I. You know to me I like having that trade off least unhappy. Happy to take some risks there. If I feel like that upside, it's going to be potentially worth. So with modern portfolio theory, it introduces a lot of fancy math in the form of variances and correlations in order to come up with this. Quantifiable, investing strategy that ultimately helps reduce risk while allowing the investor to achieve. Certain returns in. Maybe it works for some not I'm not dismissing it personally I. Don't use it, I don't personally subscribe to it I. Don't need it. I think honestly for us. In a really believe it's extends to to most people in our full universe is that is individual investors I think a more meaningful way to reduce risk. is to just extend your timeline like invest longer. So like Tom Gardner said a number of years back when we were. Working on Motley, fool one basically take your take the time line that you think you want to own any individual stocks you buy shares of starbucks and I plan on owning it for you know five years. Okay, we'll just double it. Cloning it for ten in all of a sudden right there. You've given yourself more time. Time is one of the big advantages we have is individual investors. Money managers don't have that advantage, Wall Street done generally handed abandoned, either, but if you can be patient and just invest in good businesses. That risk really starts to come down over time. There are plenty of studies out there. That show that risk comes down the longer you hold onto those stocks, which into me, just renders modern portfolio, theory, more or less not useful mean on things, not useful for everybody, but it's not useful for me and based on Chris. Question It sounds like a agree with what Brian was saying there. We think I'll add to. That is I agree that risk is really not that much of a consideration if you are saving for retirement. But once you are in retirement man, and just say like you know what the market's not I'm going to extend my time highs in ten years. Because you need to spend money in that situation, I think diversification is important. It's important to have assets that don't always move the same direction at the same time. For some fools. That's just as simple as keeping any money need the next five years in cash, so you're right out any ups and downs, and that can be fine. But I. do think it makes sense to have. A mix of investment so that right now, technology stocks are doing very well, and we hope that continues to do well, but we remember was that happened in two thousand from two thousand to two, and there were down for quite a while anyone who retired in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, or so it was very happy to have some small caps value maybe a. A little international, some reits to ride out the storm Yeah I think we talk about that often like recognizing where you are as an investor in life, are you in the grow your wealth stage, or are you in the protector stage, because they are two very different strategies, and we're all hopefully going to be in both of them at one point or another right? I personally and still on the grow your wealth stage I. Think we all probably are, but you will at some point get to where you need to focus on protecting the wealth that you've made so that you can then have that money to spend, and that definitely will dictate your investment strategy things that you're invested in and whatnot. Generally speaking I do like the idea for people who are just risk averse and have this notion that investing is just too risky. I mean the fact of the matter is not investing as far away greater risk like not investing. You will never grow your money if you don't the best, so if if if risk is a problem, I think generally speaking. Along the lines of diversification idea that that bros. talking about him, he just invest in invest in SNP index fund is something that just follows the progress and p. you know you're going to be participating in and if you look at that over the over the stretch of time, their five ten twenty thirty years, I mean that trend does go one way. It, but clearly the older you get, the more you need to start focusing on protecting your wealth, and that will change the way you view things. Right next question comes from Alex from Alexandria if I buy Muny bonds from another state in my IRA. Is it still taxable and Alexander with who we have a bond on and we do have a bunch. I know Alex up super excited about having a bunch on in Alexandria to I can't believe I haven't been there. It's like two miles from my house, but we still haven't been oh i. know because there's a global pandemic going on and we. saw. Alyx if we buy me bonds from another state in my IRA is still taxable. Bro, help him out or her or so Muny Barnes. People Invest Immunity bonds because they're free of federal taxes and in many cases. If you're buying bonds issued by the place you live, they might be free of state and local taxes, so that can be doubly triply tax free. That's why people buy 'em. There are some times, however that if you own immune, abound outside of an IRA. Pay Taxes and this surprises some people. There's something called the minimum tax. If you buy immunity bond at a discount, and then it matures at par. If you buy a distress, Muny bond for like you put an eight thousand dollars, and you sell it later for ten thousand dollars as a capital gain. You'll be taxed on that. So, there are some times when you would pay taxes on media. Now, Alex is asking what if it's an IRA? Do I have to worry about paying tax interest. If it comes from another state and the answer is no, you won't have to worry about that. The only thing I would say is. Generally speaking immune bond already has built in tax advantages, so you wouldn't keep it in an IRA, unless there's the example of the stuff I was saying previously like for. It's one of those exceptions when him UNIBOND would result in taxes than you might WanNa keep it an IRA, but generally speaking. If you're going to buy Muny Bond, keep it out of an IRA. Next question comes from Boone. I just did my first. Roth conversion and looked at that old account for the first time in. There was the expected dividend producing fund I remembered, but there was a stock chesapeake energy that I had completely forgotten about since I purchased the stock in two thousand, six fifteen. It's down way down like eight point five percent off the purchase price. What should I do with it now? It's in a tax deferred accounts so I. Don't think the loss is realized until I. Start to pull money out of the account and that might not. Not Be for fifteen years current value of all my shares will be about one percent of the value of the account after the conversion. Do I sell in the very little value? I had left and depend on E. Trade to keep up with lost for me or should I hold on based on the slim chance. The stock will be worth more in the next ten years. Oil Stocks do act unusually on occasion, only oil stocks. Stock everything else makes that usually. Chesapeake has been really. Interesting Story to follow and frankly. I don't I. Don't know that I would look at it today. As a business that I'd WANNA own so typically if I. You know I think it was yet idea. Didn't sound like a position are actively building united investment didn't work out. I mean that that happens to all of us. We don't get them all right. We have a philosophy here at the full. A lot of do we like to? Water flowers and pull the weeds, and that's just a nice way of saying. Add to our winners in to get rid of losers in. This I think is more than likely slated to continue being a loser I mean. Chesapeake has lost a lot of value. In it does sound like based on when you purchased this, these is absolutely busted I mean. There there are all sorts of reasons to sell one of them is if you thesis busted and the reason why you invest in the company is is no longer the case, and I would he probably is the case with Chesapeake so to me like you know, you could sit there and let it go, but but what's the goal trying to get back to even, or are you trying to get back a couple of bucks for me a lot of times? I'll I'll take a little opportunity here and there to just go ahead and pull those weeds sell it. Be Done with it. In even though it's just unique out a little bit value there, you can still take that money and do something more productive with it. So. Yeah T to me. I can't tell you to buy or sell obviously, but I can certainly understand. Selling in this case, but I you know. As as oil and natural gas energy can can turn around. This is going to be one that has a lot of headwinds in in. You might be waiting a very long time to to get any of this money back. I point out here that I it seems that maybe boone has a slight misunderstanding of how taxes in aries work because he talked about realizing the loss when he takes the money out and trade keeping track of the loss for him, it sounds to me that he thinks that he can write the loss off whence he takes the money out. That may not be the case, but just to be clear. One of the great benefits of an IRA is you don't pay taxes on the gains, interest and dividends from year to year. But. One of the drawbacks is. You can't take a capital loss on that as well so there's really no no way to benefit on your tax return from this loss. Next question comes from Benjamin. You recommend seeing a fee. Only financial adviser for check in every so often I know there is the Garrett planning network and others to help find an advisor. But what questions do you ask? And what answers do you listen for when trying to find one that is worth his or her one hundred fifty to two hundred fifty per hour. So I would say start first with asking yourself some questions. What are you looking for? You could go for the whole launch. Lada where someone is managing your money analyzing retirement plan helping new save and a five twenty nine. Maybe even doing your taxes with some financial planners do help with the state planning, or are you looking for something more targeted? You just want advice about am I saving enough for retirement, or are you close to retirement? You're like I just WanNa make sure that I'm doing right when terms like choosing my Medicare plan and claiming social security at the right time, so first of all just be very clear of what you're looking for. Then if it involves investments in any way, you WanNa, make sure that you find someone who is at least in the general same area philosophically and I say this, because many financial planners are hardcore index. And if you come to them as a motley fool, listener member with a lot of individual stocks. They may say okay. I'll give you some general asset allocation guidance, or they'll say I don't care if you like to pick. Stocks are not my advises, sell the stocks and go to index funds, so you want to make sure that if you're gonNA, ask for any sort of investment. Advice that you wanna find someone who's someone somewhat at least aligned for what you're looking for. Once, you've got that then. Just asked some of the typical stuff. You might expect so credentials certified financial planner. Are they a CPA either their personal financial specialist. How long they've been in the business. There are lots of people who. have not been in the business very long. Even though they're not young people, a lot of people choose financial planning as a second career, which I think is great, but just because someone may be look like they're in their forties or fifties. Sixties doesn't mean they've been in the business that long, and you WANNA. See if they've worked with someone like you right so if you have. Maybe. You have a large amount of wealth large income huge portfolio. You WanNa make sure that they have experienced with dealing with those issues, but on the flip side to if if you have, are you know middle income, decent size portfolio, but nothing too complicated. You don't WanNa. Go to someone who's used to dealing with someone who's wealthier partially because those people charge a lot more. You want to find someone who's kind of a little more lined up with what you're doing. Then make appointments with three folks. All of them will do get do free. Get acquainted means, and you're just looking for someone who you feel comfortable with. Since, you mentioned Garrett Big Fan of the Gary Planning Network and other is is not for the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers. But Garrett on their website has a how to choose an adviser section. Just Google attitude visor Garrett Planet Network has a great chapter from a dummies book that they wrote about how to choose adviser, and they have a good questionnaire that you can print out in US asking lots of good questions of financial planner. It's tough. Choosing a financial planner like my mom just went through that Bro! Is You know and she didn't really have a lot of options in Boise Idaho. Maybe two and one of them, she I never called her back, and never got back her, and the other one was just so busy just so busy, and just she just never. It's it can be rough. Finding a financial planner can be I. Think what we'll see is one of the consequences of this. Of the coronavirus pandemic. Just, like we are all used to working from home, many financial advisors and financial planners an now working from home. So in what they're doing is they're becoming licensed in more states. So, if you are more comfortable, working with someone over zoom remotely I think you don't have to stick with someone in your area. You can go beyond your locations, but you know some people don't feel comfortable that if if they're going to have someone managing their life savings, they want to be able to meet them in person. That's just a personal choice. All right next question comes from twitter. Is that right from sully what I hear? Okay? I just listened to the episode mentioning Your Weakness Two. Shopping carts and Tj, Maxx that me or you Jason. Accused me. Thoughts on the stock. If I had a war on Amazon, basket would be Costco TJ maxx Home Depot tractor supply. What would be your basket against online retail? That's funny. Well okay, listen I wouldn't have basket against online retail, because online retails where it's at. The whole idea. The whole idea behind the basket approaches to find a long term trend that you feel like the world is headed toward and so the war on cash basket, for example that was always one about people using cash war, traffic payments now with that said I get the spirit of the question some going to answer it because I do like some of these ideas. And I I would definitely include Costco in their in Home Depot's well. Home Depot gets a lot of my money. Doesn't, but they have a very loyal fan base of customers that just are happy to renew year in year out. So I love those membership models there, so costco and a Home Depot for sure you know I'm going to give a little shout at my wife Robin I. Know that she would approve of my adding target to the mixer. She hasn't been raving about targets APP and ordering on the APP the able to go to the store. Just pick it up right there I've talked with Ron Gross on more than one occasion about target and how this really has. Become a twenty first century resale right they're doing. They're doing everything online and in physical stores. What they call Alma Channel and then my fourth and I'm GONNA. Take this. You probably aren't expecting this when Alison. I'm GonNa Shock and all you. I'm ready. I'm ready Alta. We're going. Make up my I know my daughter's love. It ugly ugly Mug like this. What do I know about makeup? Tell you what. Get! A House with two daughters and a wife. That's what I know about make. There's a lot of it in an Ulta is a really really good business. They actually have a very nice diversified revenue stream. They've got the salon a`dynamic of the business which encourages people to go there they do have an online business. They have an augmented reality function there at where you can actually like. Try things on makeup to see how it looks. Mary Dillon just a phenomenal other adults of that's my fourth, their Ulta but they I appreciate the spirit of the question I like the idea I'm not saying this is the basket. I'm not tracking this basket in a not a not backing this basket, but in the spirit of the question if I had to develop. A basket, such as this one I think it'd go with those four. Yeah, I mean I guess you just have to think about what retail out there is something that you would still physically go to. Because the actual retail experience is being in the space is the experience and what you're there for? And I know I mean before Corona virus we I would go to target and just just couldn't believe how much money I had spent from walking through a few of the aisles. TJ Max is just a phenomenal business I mean what they've done through the years. Is really capitalized on the nature of the business, the advantage they have in that treasure hunt kind of nature like you go to TJ Max, maybe not necessarily looking for something, and then you end up finding a lot of things, and it can be a little bit lumping at times, but but generally speaking like management's a very good job of running that business, and they know how to exploit the advantage of experience. I think they're online game. Though I think they could probably get something going with online, and they just have not have not yet and so I. Haven't since Corona Virus for example. I haven't spent a single dollar there, but I continue to still shop at. Home Depot I. Think Yeah! We still shopping at home depot because we're doing. You know you gotta buy lumber somewhere. And I know my grandparents out in my my inlaws out in rural Virginia. They love tractor supply store, but that's not. That's not in where we live, but. Still New deck at the house there allison. I mean you, can you see? A big exposed beam behind me and some drywall work that needs to happen. Have lots of drywall work that needs to happen now though. Yeah Anyway get to that. All right next question comes from Matthew. I got married to my amazing wife nine days ago in a small Kobe nineteen wedding in our front yard after we postponed it from its original date in April all. It was definitely different, but still very special. My question is in relation to this wonderful event. My salary has been at a level that has allowed me to fund a roth. Ira I love the optionality of it, but after marrying my bad ass, wife are combined. Salaries are now over the limit that would allow me to fund the Roth. IRA does this affect occur immediately? Do I need to now open up a traditional. IRA and begin funding it or do I have until the end of the year. Matthew wants a Roth Bachelor party one last. Well Matthew I have bad news. When it comes to most things in taxes, your status and your age and things like that depends on where you are on the last day of the year, said if you're married on the last day of the year, you were considered married for the whole year. So that means if you contributed started contributing to a Roth IRA for twenty twenty. You need to call up your brokerage. Firm and re characterize that as a traditional. Now don't have any other traditional IRA, as it's very easy to do the back door, Ross which we've talked about before you can just google it or even when you call the brokerage, just say I want to do the backdoor. Roth and they'll tell you what to do. If, you have other traditional IRA as you can still do. It just becomes more complicated and you'll probably pay more taxes. So you, but you may not be totally out of luck and I should say that's only if you have a traditional IRA doesn't matter if your wife has traditional areas. One exception by the way of of what I just said. In terms of tax status and last day of the year is distributions from retirement accounts before it's age fifty nine and a half, you actually have to be age fifty nine and a half to avoid that ten percent early distribution penalty, unless some of the many exceptions that are out there exist. Right next question comes from Warren Warren Buffett. Maybe I don't know that's why I was thinking. He's asking about coq, so maybe maybe. Once James Opinion on coke. By? Or hold? Wants to now. I'd give buffet night give. Kiesel Warren of the same advice and I would say. For some I'm not buying it. Not Buying it I'm not holding it if I own it. I guess that means sell it. Even Atlanta Georgia person like you i. feel like it's almost sacrilege. I am pretty close to probably not being ever even invited back. But the facts are the facts. Okay, I mean you do have to look at the stock itself has been ain't bad stockton for the last five years. I mean I do understand why when you look at it what they do, I mean they have. Four hundred master brands, and less than fifty percent of them are the big global brands that are actually responsible for almost all of their revenue when I say almost only ninety eight percent, so it's a business. It's very reliant on on. You know a small portfolio of really successful grants. The problem is now. We've always talked about cocoa beans such a great distribution story and that's true. They've got a distribution network. It's just phenomenal, but the problem is now. They're what they're distributing is is being seen as not so good for you in so you're seeing them. Have it into to essentially pivot away from what you know brought them all of the success for all these years. Years in soda and that that's not going to change I. Mean you're always GonNa have people to drink soda? People are not to drinking as much soda going forward in the numbers of just kind of the kind of shown that through that through the quarters in the years of Coca, Cola and Pepsi Pepsi. Has the salty snacks division, which I've always been very. Impressed by I, mean I love a good Cheeto, and so I mean anytime you can throw a bag of those cheetos in my Patriot Amok GonNa, turn it their coq. Interrupting, but I think this is also very important point. You tried the Jalapeno White Cheddar crunchy cheetos. The White Shit or so. I've tried to Jalapeno ones but I've not seen the white Cheddar White Cheddar Jalapeno crunchy cheetos. Don't get the puffy. The poofy ones are not as good, but the crunchy white Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetahs. them by them. They're amazing. I have to back. Pain you. I'll get those next time. I promise I, mean Eh. One. crunchy wants the puffy ones, so that people won't you're not? You're not seeing poopie. Who using poofy Joe Copy? We'll be Coca doesn't have that dynamic of their business. They don't have that dynamic to their business, and they've suffered from that Pepsi's Pepsi's outperform coca-cola over the last several years. It's not safe. Pepsi or coke get it back. I'm sure they probably can. But what I am saying is I think there are a lot of better ideas out there, and so I wouldn't be putting new money into Coca Cola and frankly if I did own it. I probably would look at selling it and you know if you've got a beverage company, maybe own starbucks. It seems like the science coming out in support of coffee, right? It's coming and telling you that these sodas. They're gonNA. Make you fat. Coffee, it could extend your life. It could help you live longer. SMART Mexican looking this a starbucks as well is. That sounds like study from the copy roasters of America. Do! Something that Chris Hill sent me the other day. that. We sleep at night. I'm glad I've been drinking coffee as long as I have God knows what I would look like otherwise. You're a good looking man. Rick. good-looking next question comes from. A. I'm trying to save money for my kid's College. Fund while the five nine is a great option. I'm limited to investing in mutual funds, which means at best I'm going to get what the market gets assuming I do some sort of low cost index fund and I be a capital F. Fool investor have been doing much better than the market in the last three years of being a member of. Of Stock Advisor Enroll breakers, even during this pandemic mess by listening to every full podcast and following David and Tom's and yours and every one else's in the full universe. My portfolio of about one hundred stocks is up here today. Thirty percent to the market's down five percent as of day as of today weighed down by three sluggish five to nine plants that are also down five percent each. I feel like throwing away money by using the five to nine, and not being allowed to select my own great companies in which to invest. What's more, my understanding is that the five to nine does not count as an asset for the kid when applying for student aid, but the coverdale does. So I come to you with a simple question. Can I have my cake and eat it, too? What if I wanted to use the coverdell to buy individual stocks? Until the child is nearing college? At which point I then converted to a five to nine. This allows me to get better returns and avoid it being an asset for financial aid and get the favorable tax benefit. So, chose this question, because first of all Dune does a good job explaining the benefits of the coverdell over the five twenty nine, you can buy individual stocks. You can buy and sell them all day long. We recommend that, but you can. Whereas with the five twenty nine, you can only make two changes to the investments a year, and it's all mutual funds. So. That's you did a good job of explaining that. I will point out with the coverdell. It's gotta low contribution limit of only two thousand dollars a year, so for some people save more for college, but they can max out to cover it out, but then put the rest in a five twenty nine. One thing that doomed does not have quite right. Is The financial aid treatment the financial aid treatment? Coverdale's and five twenty nine is identical. They're treated as assets of the parent, not the kid that is favourable from a financial aid perspective. It's not negligible doesn't mean it doesn't have any effect on financial aid, but it's better than an asset that is owned. By the kid. He can. Transfer money from the Coverdell to the five twenty nine. If for some reason, he decides to do that, but you can't transfer it. The other way around so were convinced to try out the covered. You have money in a five twenty nine. You can't move it from the five twenty nine. To the coverdale. What other interesting thing that he pointed out is that he is doing very well with his investments, and he owns about one hundred stocks. We get this question a lot. Either on the show, or on the full live that we run every day for members of full services, and that is how many stocks should I own, and if I owned too many are not just owning index fund watering down my returns, but here's an example if someone owns a one hundred stocks is still crushing the market. Idol last question comes from Cameron thoughts on the valuation of Stone Co in light of the corona virus for a fragile country like Brazil. This could be the tipping point after so many other headwinds. But how does that affect stone? coz Business Jason I. Don't even know what Stone Co is. What is still business? Yes, don't Coz a payments company that's focused on Latin American markets in Brazil and particular in so I guess it could be. Draw you can draw a parallel to to a with square through pay pal at, but generally speaking I mean it's payments. Company focused on Latin America. Primarily Brazil. Is the big money making market kind of like Marco Libra, they're. In I, I, it's a it's. A NEAT opportunity, gained a lot of headline recently, when and it was, it was seen that Berkshire hathaway. Warren Buffett's company Berkshire hathaway taken a five percent position in the company, which is pretty considerable i. Think in the near term. You have to acknowledge the fact that. They're gonNA, be some real headwinds in in Brazil particularly because of the pandemic I mean. The flip side of that is role in same boat kind of in that regard. The entire world is dealing with it, so it's not specifically you know it's. It's not particular to one economy or one country some. To get hit harder than others I, do feel like Brazil. Be at a place where they can recover from this given You know some of the other businesses in the area. I mean that that that I think is. Who knows ultimately how? That's GONNA shake, but generally speaking. I think the move away from cash towards cashless. Transactions in and financial software that's not stopping if anything, this hastens that which which is what I think, Cameron's talking about there and for a company like stone. Co, neither are other companies in the space pags bureau in roquetas libra to but you know moving money around is a big big market opportunity, and there's nothing that says they won't be able to expand well beyond the Latin American markets, too, so I I'd say cautiously optimistic I mean I

Frank It Forward: How to Sell Ball Park Franks When No One's at the Ballpark
"The weirdest baseball season in history started last night. The Twenty Twenty Major League baseball season debuted with a clash between the Washington nationals in the New York Yankees, nationals park in the country's capital was packed with. Virtual fans, that's right, the fans you may have seen on TV. Were just images manufactured for the cameras by Fox Sports? In reality, the teams play to an empty stadium because of covid nineteen. This season teams will play only sixty games down from the typical one hundred sixty two right now. There's no intention to have many live fans at any of them just TV cameras. We won't get into the debate about why Fox decided to manifest virtual fans complete with recorded sounds of cheering applause, and the like the TV audience know. Today, we're interested in one of those things that like baseball. Itself has always seemed timeless the stadium hotdog. Too, many of us me included a hot dog goes with the baseball game. The way hot fudge goes with vanilla ice cream. They just belong together, but not this year. Needless to say virtual fans don't order francs with mustard and onions, nor do they reach out and snack a beer from a wandering vendor that's leaving entire industry, high and dry stadium vendors are out of work. That's giving Ballpark Franks the nation's number one. One brand of hot dogs and opportunity to look philanthropic, while also promoting their dogs to fans, watching Games on the small screen on Wednesday, which not coincidentally was national hotdog, day Ballpark Franks and it is donating one hundred thousand dollars to unemployed stadium vendors through a baseball charity in campaign. They're calling frank it forward. They're also asking fans to tweet their favorite baseball memories along with the Frank. It forward Hashtag of course. For every tweet that fans post ballpark will donate an extra dollar up to fifty thousand dollars within a day. Fans had begun complying. Some tweets were clearly planted by Tyson foods. ballpark Franks owner to get the Frankfurt Frenzy on fast forward, but some were genuinely sweet like a tweet from Ban Molly, Heidrick, she finally recalled attending the thousand fifteen world series game with her dad, telling her for the entire five hours that she would be Zombie the next day at school. She said she almost caught a foul ball and yes, she couldn't stay awake in math class. Her HASHTAG, no regrets. The promotion gives a sheen of sweetness and philanthropy to the ballpark francs, which happens to be America's biggest seller of the process. Meet parent. Tyson foods of course is struggling with its image these days between having covert outbreaks at many of its meat, processing plants, and being under investigation by the Justice, Department for alleged poultry price-fixing, but on a summer night. We need to dwell on the bigger picture. Maybe. What's worth spending time on? Is The marketing rivalry between BALLPARK Franks in America's second largest brand Oscar Mayer that brand owned by Kraft, was revived three years ago when its parent put ten million dollars into removing chemicals like nitrates nitrites from its dogs, the attempt to cater to the clean eating tastes of millennials. It helped nowadays craft hines has been doing well selling its enormous variety of grocery store staples to our newly stay at home nation, but how will it compete at the? No, Fan Ballpark. Hopefully not with a repeat of its attempt from twenty nineteen, a hotdog ice cream sandwich. It was made with. Get this candied hotdog, bits, hotdogs, sweet, cream, spicy, dijon, Gelato, and a cookie Bun, according to writer Michael Clare and a Major League baseball publication called cut four last August. Clare's take on what was clearly a desperate attempt to get the upper hand in the Weiner wars. This hot dog mustard ice cream. Monstrosity needs to return to whatever hell it came from. So. Far Oscar Mayer hasn't made any announcements that one this year may be given covid nineteen craft hines got a little more sensitive about the queasiness factor when it comes to the economics of the Frankfurter fight between Tyson and craft Heinz. The ballpark matters in two thousand sixteen Americans spent twenty million dollars buying hotdogs at ball games, so says the national hot dog and Sausage Council. Council apparently, that's the last time they gathered this debt. So the biggest question this year will be. Will fans watching at home still by hotdogs, or will they just eat? Whatever happens to be for? Dinner served on a real plate, not in a little cardboard dog holding. If that happens, the frank forward campaign is unlikely to give much of an advantage to Ballpark, Franks and hopefully. WHO's out of work? hotdog vendors have already found a way to turn their talents to something more lucrative. And perhaps less greasy.
Conversation With Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson
"Delighted to welcome. To our program, a very important guests at this unbelievably strange time from the Mountain West Conference Commissioner Craig Thompson Commissioner thank you very very much for making the time I I, I can only imagine what your schedule is like. These days especially Zoom Bill Assuming there is one good afternoon. Paul good to be with you. You know I hope to mode no more about The next ninety minutes to two hours I have a four o'clock board calling five o'clock standing Monday de call, so we all compare notes and Kinda live by that old adage. God gave us two ears and one off for a reason, right? We're trying to learn from each other. Well we appreciate you making time I'm curious before we get down to some of the obvious questions Since, this occurred you. You've been very obviously active in in the NCAA, basketball tournament, having chaired the the men's basketball committee, and it all started there, and and I know in in your many many years is as commissioner. You've experienced so much but How do you? How do you prepare yourself for something like this? which is literally off the charts. Really is and you know again you don't because. no-one there might have been a few people worldwide They'd be well into their hundreds that were around nineteen eighteen. Spanish flu days, but For the most part, nobody's dealt with any of this Paul. So it's all new, and and it's It's disconcerting. It's hard. It's sad, but it's It's life and it's something we. We have to adjust to and and moved from. In as you get closer to what are really critical decisions, other conferences have made these choices many have not What what do you weigh as you're about to go onto? Another call here how how do you determine these things? Well, it's really got to beat a the safety and the health soccer you I think it's simply going to come down to what is the risk tolerance for for all the various groups just within our FBI subdivision and certainly there's. A rank and file and differences between the autonomous five leaks and a group of five leaks, but You've got you've got. A ton of governors. There's fifty state governors in that up BS group, one hundred thirty board of trustees, regions, one hundred thirty university presidents and Chancellors hundred thirty athletic directors under thirty head, football coaches, and I guarantee it dollar on the same page, and so you know we're. We're just trying to adjust on what makes the most sense for my university and ultimately our conferences. And everyone has a different set of circumstances as you said Commissioner Thompson but. It is late I think you know that we all we all know that. As you are about to go on these calls here in the next hour or two How do you start narrowing the window and coming to? Conclusions! Well we all kind of went into that false pretense and hope that fans should be better in July and August and we had time right back in March. We had four months to figure this out when we've got probably less than four weeks. A couple of weeks a big date coming up on Friday with you know the the six week period starting extended team practices, and then most camps opening somewhat in that August seventh time friend I! I had a good exchange with one of our head. Football coaches today saying you know I don't even know what to do. Because of campus regulations and concerns, we have one institution that's had nearly one hundred football players for little over a month. Now Paul and we have another institution that literally has no football players, conditioning of or working out degree, and so you know we're all over the map based on a local and university, muncipality rules and regulations and. I said this for months gone on standby. One of one of the big concerns and focal points for us is the state of California They just announced today that they're going to delay. The start of their prep season suggested until December or January didn't give an exacting, and they join a couple of states that the prep seasons have been canceled altogether one of our states New Mexico, so just just trying to deal with all the nuances and differences in rules, policies and allowances. As you as you try to deal with with some some issues before that certainly, the non-conference issues a lot of non conference. Games have been scrubbed. I. Has that been a major issue for you or Were you in reasonably good shape. Well it is a big issue, and of course years of all years. This is our twenty seven season A. We had more home games against PAC twelve than any time in our previous 21-year-history, we lost home games. Ucla at both. San Diego State ally. Utah, Colorado Washington state calendars on a state. They were GONNA play at the new two billion dollar NFL stadium in Las Vegas against UNLV so a lot of people like to point to that financial loss of losing the the six road at twelve games and a and a guarantee. Those seven home games from from both of financial interest level, and then ultimately you know television perspective CBS. Fox Aren't real thrilled. You know that we lost those seven home games. Talking to the Commissioner of the Mountain West Craig Thompson discussing all the variables. Commissioner. We. We've talked to so many different commissioners over these past few months, and as you as you so eloquently pointed out a minute ago. Everyone has a different set of circumstances and challenges you maybe more than than most because of the geographical aspect. But how do you think and it shouldn't be that hard to think about it since it's not far off? How how do you ultimately come up with what you would say? Good solution, not only for your member institutions, but for the safety of the athletes. Well again. You not to lean on your medical people and that's one of the. Major aspects of this board call coming up in an hour, so Paul because It's the first time that they in a while. They've heard directly from the the medical advisory group and you know they don't depend on them. You know they. They are the experts, will we? The board are economists and Then different walks of life. They're not medical people, per se, and so you know you really have to lean heavily on what makes sense I. I said four months ago and I I contend today. A lot of this is going to be perhaps probably triggered by what happens on our campuses. What they look like in the next month or so you know everybody's either hybrid mostly online You know there's GonNa. Be Certainly people walking around campus, but you know you. You really can't expect to have a college athletics if you don't have a fairly open in some degree. Campus. Commissioner I, it's no secret Wherever conferences are located and and and spread that football pays the majority of the bills there. There's some outliers of course but What's at stake you just from a revenue standpoint? Well you know. Let's all kinds of figures in I I know that A couple of our department said have lost Well in excess of ten million dollars now, and then could jump into without football alum Paul you know double and triple, and you know those are not insignificant numbers. They're smaller than the world. You live in I lived in Atlanta. For four years. New Orleans for twelve years both children born in New Orleans and well versed in an SEC football, and what it means in a walk of life, and so it's different, no question it's different I live in Colorado and and what it's like in Western states, but but none the less. You, do not escape whatever love your Ad. That football is probably that you know eighty eighty five percent of of an athletic budget, and and so it's so very important, but you know as harmful as painful rather as it is from the financial perspective now that cannot be the driving force won't be the driving force. It will be that the health and safety it'll be university decisions. You know I've always. Always felt. The presidents of universities and chances have an extremely difficult position now more so than ever because they're pushed him pulled in and all these different directions and you know I. Don't know how the decision will. Ultimately made would fall looks like from terms of football. I don't know who makes that decision, but Hopefully they'll be some clobbering collective. Let's let's go right to the College Football playoff. Can you even imagine a world where pick a number? Three conferences can play in the fall and seven up to play in the spring. What happens to see a p.? Is there a CFP? Does that make sense to have a CFP? I guess it might depend on those three conferences are and I use. You know you, you're GONNA have to look at this for for the good of everybody, and and you know the collaboration and collective exchange and we've seen conferences. Do things unilaterally I mean as a commissioner. You Work for twelve schools. You don't work for honored thirty FBI schools, and so you're doing what's right, and what's your membership is is directing and advise you to do, but we do have to get together and get the same page in some regards spor for the sake of the CFD for instance and the bowl system. I know at least I'm told in talking to your colleagues commissioners. We wind down. I know you've got a lot of meetings to that. You are a collaborative group. I mean that's a fact. I mean we see that all the time but it but I wonder though. Because we've already seen some some. Some schisms as we had the big ten, and then everyone else said something else I mean the PAC twelve and the big ten, and do you. Are you concerned about the stability of of what you do every day and try to work with everyone else within the framework of college athletics. I am and I'm not I mean again. We try to work together, but at the end of the day our plan for fourteen or ten members, order media have will dictate. What direction are leagues go and I know the NCAA takes a ton of shots, but the NCAA is membership driven. It's schools that are that are ultimately making decisions and the conferences the exact same way, so you know we can compare but I. I am concerned about The postseason college football, the the CFC's a five hundred million dollar enterprise NCAA. Basketball Championship is a six hundred million dollars in a prize number of conferences of two hundred and fifty to three hundred million dollar annual TV, contracts, and and we can't go ten I don't well. Yeah, anything's possible. You could go ten separate ways I. certainly don't think it's going to be that way at the end of the day. Commissioner will let you get back to your meetings, but thank you for making time. It was just a pleasure to to hear your perspective as someone who is so well respected. And revered in this industry we be well and let's hope for some good news. Stay safe yourself my friend.

But their users were all on EBay and EBay had purchased a different payment system, which of course, EBay preferred to use it didn't look good. It was pretty certain for years the pay pal as a separate entity was a big risk factor for them. And so they looked at pay Pao is like the wild wild west, no law and order. No sheriffs in town, these untrustworthy scruffy sorts of people. You have to understand EBay leaders saw themselves as the kinds of heroes who ran a tight ship.

"ten million dollar" Discussed on WINT 1330 AM
"Thanks so much for being with us. We're talking today about the world that we live in seven billion people, and how the great majority of us are trying to help others and trying to do the right thing. And there's just this segment. I thought that maybe is causing so many problems from their edgy. We've we've deterred the discussion a little bit. And just before the break. I ask you a question that you tried to answer. But I just don't feel that you did. And the question is that we've talked in the past about how we are designed to help others were designed to do the right thing. We're designed to me one. And yet in these toughest times when you'd think that those would be most evident when those would show themselves more because we have people who need help all over. We for some reason have become more protective and greedy of what we have and less willing to help. And why why is that if if we should be wired to help people more to the paradigm of helping others? Pink aboard helping others. His ward of oneness. I need to hell. The me in you. I need to help the me in others that is one. If I wanted to help others automatically, I separated them from oneness. So any difficult time. I will I think of me because I'm separate than the others. You know in times. It is known. There is so much more queasiness in a family. Share things they work together. One when they have too much money. If somebody father or mother gets a lottery of ten million dollar. Pretty soon that family would not have. Anybody speaking to them, right? That's true. So what happens is? The families. The closest thing we consider as one. And when you have the money, then greed comes in and separates you. I'm me. And he's the I got the lottery he didn't or she didn't or so that separates you. So the moment we thank closer to one nece. We begin to feel the pain of others be begin to take care of others. Now mother is known to sacrifice, our hunger, heart bane. Are you in life to save the child? Because that's the closest thing to oneness. It comes from me. It is me. As a mother that's how she thinks. That's why father is not that close to the child. When child makes a mistake. Mother was. Loves and hugs. The child listens to the child. He goes to the water other gifts lecture, right because they're never really have that one mess with them. So in absence of oneness Ray. We're always looking for recognition and medal and trophies are doing good to others. And then defeats the whole purpose. We do need to have. I think we need to have some kind of an incentive, and and the incentive that we have around the family is well, this is my son or my daughter my Brown. This is in center, the incentive to protect my hand. And if I don't I'll die. The splendor would have killed me. So now next time splendor, I'm going to leave. Rush myself to the doctor because I don't want my and be cut off. That's my incentive. So once we realize that until I think as oneness I can't be rela. I am not save again exist. That's my incentive. So let's break this down on it. If I have if I have a family, and I'm I'm at this point, I'm the father, and I have shoulder in an Anna spouse and everybody here, our incentive is the oneness of the family the bond that we're creating the love that we have for each other the way that we know we'll support each other and help each other through and there's this feeling that that helping one of the members of the family is good for everybody. Right. Okay. So that is openly mentally spiritually the center that we have outside of the walls of the home. Or maybe they're undefeated homes, but outside of that we drop that we don't we don't feel that same need, right? Okay. We only notice when they're severe problems when somebody has lost their home for closed or or somebody was murdered or something extreme then we are hard goes out or crashing somebody's AOL. Okay. But normally we don't pay attention. Splinters strike. We we we have too many concerns with that our own household there. You have to take care of isn't that a a huge leap to expect people to when they're so concerned about their own self and their own immediate family isn't isn't that too much to expect that we're going to pay attention to everybody splinter in their fingers. Well, the thing is this Ray that. It goes back to our wiring of how we think is planted in us before return five, and it is at that point the mind gets polluted and absence of oneness is still in us says it child you are a separate guy. Are you a separate person? You have to think separately. So it is under that circumstance. If we brought oneness and showed them example of oneness, this society's majority of the problem would go away. Because here we are the wealthiest nation in this world, right? And what if each well to do family Dobbs family in the ghettos and brings them up that becomes their extended families their pain and their suffering the whole thing, suddenly the problem disappears. If our neighbor is getting foreclosure. This neighborhood the neighborhood people can get together and save that neighbor. But they don't. And if they did they Konami as well. But again, it it sounds so perfect. But then you get filtered in there that the the evil the manipulation the politics, the the the ruthless actions of others, and it just I mean, I think that's really at the core of our problem right now is because even if you do have people trying to do the right thing, you have other influences in there that are making it very difficult to do the right things. And and to help people right now, I mean. See you. Contract. A wireless. You do not stop beating the body healthy food. You do not. Take their you take care of that. When all the good things you do for the body. You still do? Yes. Right. Give up. Stop right. So same thing. You can't stop because you will exist. Are somebody's mind is twisted. Somebody's mind is complete wide of oneness. But the more people in our society embrace oneness. And practice oneness. We much better off. When when we confront these ills. We have to buy into the belief that oneness is going to be better that it's not as it's not a belief. That's where the problem is is like you're saying it is an option. Okay. Let's take this path of oneness, which will make me. Better. Our economy would improve or things will go away. So that's why I need to go to one. That's not the case. Oneness is fact oneness is the truth. So if you are preyed absence of the truth. How are you going to get to your right destination? If you have eroneous map, and you have the most advanced automobile most advance where he go to travel. And all the food for your journey and everything, but you'll never get to the destination because you have the wrong map. So one this is the correct map and in absence of oneness. No matter how hard you try nor how intelligent you are not how influence and you have you will never find, peace and harmony. So we have really no choice but to practice oneness. I'd like to come back and go back to the original question that I had as far as the people that are not practicing one and how we can better communicate and overcome that fact, because again, most of us I think are trying to do the right thing we can come back and finish. That part of the county say we can do another show. And thank you very much for watching this program. And thank you here. You're listening to stress free living. We'll be right back with the second half of today's program at pedal. Brian Chevrolet, we service all makes and.

"Marginal tax rate, especially we're starting to talk about your ten million dollar, you ten million dollar all ten million dollar. What if I need twenty million dollars to start a business? What if I need that extra bunch of dollars after my ten million dollars? To pay my employees. Or what if I invented something? And I want to keep my my money because I want to invent other things. What's this magic number? It's like the fifteen dollar minimum wage where does that come from? What just comes from leftists? And they keep demanding. They have their catchphrases their fortune cookies they have there. Either the ten million dollar. We're just taxing seventy percent tax rate, and where's the money go? It goes into the massive federal leviathan slush fund, and where's the constitutional basis for that? Well, this a progressive income. Well, there's also private property rights. Now also unintended consequences unless you actually know what you're talking about. How many people? Who aren't over ten million dollars? Doesn't mean they get to keep it better. And over ten million dollars have small businesses or entrepreneurs, or whatever doesn't matter. So you know, what? I'm giving up. I'm not paying seventy cents out of every dollar after ten million dollars. Screw it. I'm not hiring anymore people. I'm not expanding my business. I'm closing it down on retiring to Florida. Well that had happened. You know, some people are working hard. They're working hard 'cause they wanna make money. They want to expand their business. They you know, what forget it. I'm done. I'm done. We have a poll now, thanks to the media. Seventy four percent of Democrats and people who lean democrat would consider voting for ocasio Cortes. She rolled enough to be president. That is thirty five. She's twenty nine. Is a media creation. Let's go on to cut seven, Mr. producer, go. I hate to personalize this. What do you think it is moral for individuals to for instance, do we live in a more world that allows the billionaires? Is that a moral our knowledge stop? So now, you see the socialist communist position AK the progressive position. Is the moral one? And if you don't embrace it. You're immoral. So if you believe in capitalism wealth creation, which leads the job creation and so forth. It does every time. Well, Mark what about people inherit money? What do you think they do with that money burn? It put it in their mattress. Let's say they leave it in bonds and stocks that they put it in a Bank account. What happens to that money? Anybody know? Other people use it. Maybe they borrow the money. Maybe other companies use it to expand. It doesn't just sit there. Money's like water. Doesn't just sit there. It's put to some use. Unless you stick it in your closet or something like that. Money creates money doesn't mean for every person. But it means for economy, generally. So now the question is, ladies and gentlemen, is it moral to be a capitalist? Is it moral to be successful? It's immoral to create wealth for yourself and other people is it moral to be an incredibly successful entrepreneur. Is it moral? You see because after all those of you who don't agree with them. You're racists, your homophobes and your immoral. Go ahead. It's not it's not. And I think it's important to stay. I I don't think it's not that necessarily means that all billionaires are immoral wait.
