"5 to ten weeks. Some models may be longer. See dealer for detail. This is WTO P news 7 53. It is a no vote from a second railroad union, and any strike that comes out of this could be devastating for our already troubled economy. A second railroad union has rejected its deal with major U.S. freight railroads, reflecting workers increased frustration with a lack of paid sick time in the industry. The vote by the brotherhood of railroad signalmen adds to concerns about the possibility of a strike next month. That could cripple the economy. More than 60% of union members oppose the 5 fear contract with a lack of paid sick leave and the strict attendance policies that keep some of them on call 24/7 being major issues of discontent, 6 smaller unions have approved their deals, but all 12 unions must ratify them to prevent a strike. If a walkout does happen, then Congress may step in to block it. I'm Lisa dwyer. Almost 8 months ago, President Biden said in his State of the Union address as the pandemic faded more federal workers would be headed back to the office, but a new federal news network survey says most federal employees are still working remotely. If an executive editor, Jason Miller tells WTO, the work from home trend may be here to stay. We don't think they're going to come back to the office in droves like we once saw. And I think that's really creating agencies to think about their office space of the future. How do we work in the future? Does working through a remote work and using video teleconferencing systems, whether it's zoom or teams or WebEx or whatever, how does that work for you and how to make that better. And I've heard just recently a lot of managers are saying, okay, how do I manage differently? And I think that's a key piece here. F and N survey found 60% of federal employees are working in a hybrid environment, 32% are entirely remote, just 8% of federal workers are in the office

"Campaign 2022 on WTO P it's now ten weeks until the midterm elections. Polls show Republicans still hold the upper hand when it comes to retaking the house, but Democrats are gaining confidence, they can hold on to the Senate more now from WTO peace Mitchell Miller today on the hill. House minority leader Kevin McCarthy has been bullish on GOP chances to retake the lower chamber. It could be one of the biggest election losses for Democrats. That was what he said last fall after Republican Glen youngkin was elected governor of Virginia, but a lot has changed since then and what was once predicted to be a possible red wave may now be more of a ripple. With the nonpartisan cook report, predicting a GOP pickup of 15 to 20 seats rather than upwards of 50 as some Republicans previously predicted. In the Senate, some GOP lawmakers are toning down anti abortion rights rhetoric, amid concerns, the issue is undercutting support among moderate Republicans and independents. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller WTO. Using the rearview mirror for a lot of kids, it's now they get back to learning. And as they return to class, some students have an additional important assignment to complete, go back to the doctor.

It is 6 35 when students serve on state boards of education, one organization wants to make sure their voices are heard. According to the national association of state boards of education, more than 400 students now have positions on state boards or advisory councils in 33 states and that includes Maryland and the District of Columbia. But Selena Piero tucked with the national group says just getting a seat on a board isn't enough.

If Roe v. Wade Is Overturned, What Does It Mean Around America?
"Roe V wade, it seems to me, will be overturned, if not today, tomorrow. One of these days, this decision is going to come out. So practically speaking, apart from everything we're discussing, what does that mean around America? For example, in a place like Texas, will it be impossible to get a legal abortion in the state of Texas? Well, one of the things that, to your point, if roe versus wade is overturned, it does go back to the states. And right now there are 27 states that have passed some kind of a trigger law, meaning that the law is triggered, it goes into effect at the overturning of roe versus wade. And in some of those states, there is a complete ban on abortion. And in some states, there's a ten week banner 20 week ban or whatever the state might have come up with. Now, in some situations, you have places like New York or California, Maryland, who are working to put trigger laws in effect that legalize it in an extraordinary fashion. It's one of the things that we know with just the polling of the American people is the vast majority of Americans oppose abortions in the third trimester. One of the arguments from pro abortion people is, well, this is a lump of cells or to feed us, and it's always, this is something that I know you have covered and appreciate too. It's always ironic to me that people refer to it as a fetus, as if they don't know what the definition of fetus is. Apparently, people don't know Latin and recognize that that actually means baby in another language. Nonetheless, with it being said, the argument is that it's a fetus. However, when you get into the third trimester, there's no confusion. What is growing in the womb of the mother with a separate DNA, this entirely different body, a functioning body on all kinds of levels. And yet what we are seeing is there are right now some extremists in the pro abortion camp, who are going so far as to not only argue that abortion should be legal in the third trimester, there are actually arguing abortion should be legal after birth, which

"When my wife is perhaps off doing somewhere else and earn another town I go to the local diners And I did the last two mornings And there's a couple older ladies you know I'm 64 I guess a little bit older than me not necessarily a ton And they work their butts off And they are just a little bit of money and most of the money you're in of course is from Tips I have never seen them so worried in my life I've gotten to know them just by showing up from time to time And I leave significant tips because I can see that they're stressed In the one said to me I can't afford to fill up my car anymore It was a $110 And the same food I bought for about 50 or $60 just a year or so ago is now a $100 Now many of you know this because you're living paycheck to paycheck or you're a minimum wage and so forth and so on But there's other Americans who see these things happening But are not living paycheck to paycheck I am not But I see what's happening And at some point everybody's impacted by this When there are shortages when there's economic dislocation it just that summer hurt faster than others some are hurt worse than others But inflation knows no friends And I felt terrible for these ladies At the same time I said it's a diner And so the guy who owns the diner he can't be sure if he's going to be getting the food supplies and the other supply even napkins So the pricing is unstable The provisions of the products unreliable And that is a disaster in an economic system So we're having shortages huge price spikes the value of the dollar meaning your income or your pension whatever Is shrinking Expenses are going up And the only thing Biden can do is blame the Republicans blame the virus blame Putin and say that he's ordered an investigation of the baby formula companies and the fertilizer companies the oil companies the meat companies ladies and gentlemen Do you really think that all these businesses and all the employees working for them are conspiring against you Because you have to believe that If you believe what this administration is saying or do you believe that they are absolutely incompetent and don't have the foggiest idea what they're doing and they're making matters not worse but disastrous Disastrous And it's going to get worse And more disastrous Let's look at this baby formula issue As the daily mail puts out Abbott Laboratories said it could be ten weeks Before baby formula is restocked That's two and a half months by my calculation Well guess what Babies can't wait that long Once given FDA approval Abbott's Michigan plant could reopen in two weeks But the company said it will take 6 to 8 weeks to replenish its supply So the plant closed in mid February amid reports of infant illness and death For infants two died two got sick The plant closed in mid February After a thorough review of all the available data Abbott said there is no evidence to link our formulas to these infant illnesses No evidence So what is the FDA doing It's sitting on its hands It's keeping this plant closed Now if Donald Trump were president he would override the FDA and hope and order the plant to be open But Biden's in the Oval Office And he won't do it Congress is going to hold a hearing The Democrats control the house innocent In two weeks not tomorrow not Monday not to in two weeks To look at the formula shortage To look the formula shortage So the FDA the Biden administration and now the Democrats running Congress they're putting the lives of these babies in danger It's that simple It's that simple And Congress this Congress and this president want more and more control over your lives They think they can run every industry investigate them threaten them interfere with them shut them down What is this Meanwhile as you probably heard by now A Republican representative who happens to sit on the Homeland Security committee cat come back Republican in Florida cat CAM AC K She's being told by the border patrol that they're holding pallets not boxes pallets a baby formula Being sent by the federal government to these border facilities for the illegal alien children Who cross into the country They're sending pallets pallets a baby formula to the border Meanwhile meanwhile Americans working Americans with kids They can't find baby formula And this representative comic posted pictures to social media empty formula shelves in Florida Ladies and gentlemen they're empty everywhere They're empty everywhere And she even pointed out that the photos were from the Ursula processing facility in Texas where thousands are being housed as Fox right and processed and then released She said the concerned agent told her that she would not believe the shipment I just brought in Shipments palette upon palette upon palette a baby formula He's been a border patrol agent for 30 years The congresswoman said and he has never Ever seen anything quite like this He's a grandfather He's saying that his own children can't get baby formula U.S. customs and border protection didn't immediately respond to a Fox request 100 House Republicans called on the Biden administration to do more to address the ongoing shortage This is an issue of life and death It's time this administration treats it with the appropriate urgency it deserves the GOP said So this.

He's definitely written four books about the olympics and he's been following the tokyo games closely and for me. It's a chance to slow down and think about the olympics. More generally a lot of what we're seeing in tokyo is actually not necessarily tokyo problems. But they're olympic problems.

Yeah i i agree i thing about it is i carry enough stuff to the duck blind. I don't want to be carrying plot place beds. I don't wanna have to do that. So that's the reason. I wouldn't but will get out in the marsh. Would i get out in the field. Get out in the woods and do something similar to it yet. Because the concept can transfer like i said before you can figure out ways hell. I could put a t shirt down in. The dog could be put on place. Because that's a perimeter yesterday on that bed. Stay on that t shirt. He doesn't know what it is. It's got to be just defined so So the question he says. I'm very curious about jeremy and his team how they use place training at home in the house and just kind of talked a lot about that The it says. I don't see the doesn't seem like the dogs get full room of the house not at all. You want your dog getting into trouble. Let them free roam the house. So i take away the opportunity to fail. Which essentially sets the dog up for success. So that's that's completely my thought process. Don't put kids in spots that they're going to be tempted to get into trouble. Same thing with dog so my dogs don't run the house. My older dogs have the freedom to and i would say eighty five percent of the time they choose not to the reason. I allow my older dogs to do.

How do I get started with SEO?
"Let's get started with a bit of search engine optimization wanna one the whole point of seo is to make it easy. I search engines primarily. Google most dominant search engine to find you and your website when i say website. I'm talking about all the pages on your site all the blog posts now if new to your market for a new in your business. Most people aren't going to search and find you by name not a household name yet but you want people to find you. Buy the keywords search for so for example. let's say you're yoga instructor. You won't find your website when they type things like yoga poses for a bad back or yoga for beginners. Every industry has popular the most frequently searched keywords in your marketplace. Let's go with yoga example. In the yoga world there are the top one hundred key words that people type into google searching for things related to yoga. Wanna make sure. Europe's i shows up when anybody searches for these key words and you wanna make sure you show up as highest possible in the google rankings. They say the top three positions on the first page are gold really Most of all the traffic go to those first three rankings. But you're just getting started. Your job really is tried to at least get on the first page. Okay so what is step number. One is separate. One is a unique keyword research tool. There's a lot of keyword research tools out there. let me start with a free one. There's google keyword planner. They keep changing the name. But if you just google google keyword tool you'll find it and this one's free. It's a little bit complicated. The you is so fantastic so if you have a budget for it. I recommend to tools that you can use your choose either one One is a truce. That's a h. R. e. f. s. The other one is surp- stan. We've used both of these tools for keyword planning Both work just as good as each other is just a matter of preference of what you like. These are paid tools and you pay monthly to get access to it. I believe services is a little bit less expensive than h refs so budget may surf sets the way to go now. What are these tools. Do with these tools. Allow you to find out how much traffic every keyword gets also allows you to know which key words you should be looking for in your market. So of the yoga instruction market. I can write yoga classes. And i can see all the key. Words that relate to that market i can also see what keywords am i ranking four for my website and even more importantly i could see what keywords do my competitors rank for so your first step in getting started with. Seo is a list of your top. One hundred keywords. You want to go after. What are the hundred keywords that you want to show up on the first page when somebody searches for those you can literally just write them down in google sheet one hundred key words okay and then once you have the hundred words can now work on trying to get visibility on all of them so you can't do a hundred in one shot so we break it up into ten every week so in ten weeks you'll be done with this project so now you know the keywords are looking for what do you need to do well obviously you're not gonna just magically show up for these key words you need to have content on your website that match these keywords mentioned these keywords that go into depth and keywords so this is a really good way for you to start planning your content. Your block Even the pages on your website that describe your features in your services so one place to start is to go on your website and look at all the pages you have start with your pages and see which pages can you rank for these keywords. You can mention these keywords on those pages that make sense that actually is congruent reader would read that on the page and say okay that makes sense not just forced they used blockbuster's what block was have you published you may have not included these keywords. That you can. This is literally changing the copy on your site to reflect these key words and of course you need to make sure it makes sense. That actually is a good fit. Was very sophisticated. And if you try to force it in what's called keyword stuffing you're going to get slapped on google and it's going to be a detrimental effect on your site ranking so don't try to force it if it makes sense do it. If it doesn't don't have done that take a look at the keywords that you have on your list. What are some blog posts that you can right around these Keywords these could be your next block pussy publish in the next week to three. You get the point now what we just did modifying our pages and blog posts is called on site. Seo and it's kind of the first step you need to do but now you can go into. What's called the metadata you be able to help. Google find your pages with these key words so what we'd like to do and what we like to recommend is every page every blog posts. You should be trying to go for one keyword for that page your blog post. That's the focus. You're really trying to achieve mastery over that key word on a page or block

California what i really wanted for my experience was to feel like okay. This is a natural thing that women are meant to do. She planned to deliver it a new york city hospital but then the realities of covert hit particularly sequestering here ninety minutes from manhattan and the limits on numbers in the delivery room which would preclude yolanda and bella from being present. Then she and malik watched the two thousand eight documentary the business of being born which is critical of medical interventions and depicts a successful home birth. We both looked at each other. And we're like. I think that's the call. Gd says they placed a blow up bath in their bedroom and sent their three cats and border collie away when the midwife expressed concern that the sphinx and maine coon felines might puncture the tub with their claws. Malik ask gee-gee what music she wanted to hear and she surprised him by requesting the audio of favourite children's novel the indian in the cupboard.

It's going to be two hundred three hundred fifty dollars an hour on average if you're going to get advice and attorney and then they're going to have to put the plan together and that's gonna take a couple of weeks and then once the plan's done you're gonna to have to fund it basically then put everything in the plan so many people. What's what's the number on that. How many plans get put together. They don't even fund the damn things. It's a large percentage. I scott it. Isn't that funny. I didn't see that up for him to say that by the way this amazing. It's interesting that you brought that up. Because i literally just got an article. I'm going to read this.

That's one of the explainer videos how we can also get funding done. What's the average that it takes to fund. Somebody's trust on our platforms. Got less than an hour hour and let me ask you this.

A Simple Choice
"I'm nora mcnerney and this is terrible. Thanks for asking. This is a continuation of the episode. Just before it in your podcast app so if you have not heard the previous episode stop right now. This is not a place to start this. If you're a first time listener no no no no no. You don't get to start here. I'm so sorry. I can be slightly bossy. But you're gonna wanna go back. Listen to the episode from the week previous and then you may have this one as a treat so for those who already listened to the other episode at the end of that episode. Mark told his girlfriend. Melissa he was going to have children with her and it is not a small decision it never is but it was a particularly brave one because mark had lost his mother to cancer when he was just nineteen. He lost his wife karen to cancer fifteen years later in three years. After karen's death he was in love with melissa and willing to make this huge scary leap with her for both of them. Things feel good and they feel hopeful. This is melissa okay. Good things are going to start happening now. Like we're gonna start having kids we're gonna start the next chapter and it's going to be full of wonderful things for mark and for i a year and a half. After that conversation the two them are married and melissa is pregnant. The wonderful things are happening. That's mark melissa. Seeing their baby's heartbeat hearing it seeing it at their six week appointment that little butterfly wing rhythm of their future child. It was pretty amazing. The lady was surprised that we would see it already. And at that point. I'd still feeling like. Is this real. Come not fully comprehending what's about to change in my life at that point. I'm just thinking like things are going. Well that's a good sign. Melissa was feeling sick which was also a good sign and at their next appointment. It was ten weeks and mark goes with melissa again. He's there. He's ready to document than the ultrasound tech. She was anime bali and she wasn't saying anything but this was our first pregnancy. So i really think anything of it and then she came back with a doctor and they told us that there is no heartbeat and it looked like we had just lost the baby just like within the last day or two and we. We both broke down. We were both devastated and it was. It was way harder than we would have anticipated. Pregnancy loss is just so much harder than you realize. Until you've been there. So i i don't really swear very often but i think my actual words were what the fuck and nobody talks about like the hard part like i mean. It's all hard but nobody talks about like how painful it can mean. There's so much blood that they spend the next day in the emergency room and mark is back in the hospital taking care of the woman he loves and nobody would blame mark for pulling back and saying see see told you my brain was right. The worst case scenario did happen again. All my previous losses didn't affect the statistical probability that one in four pregnancies are lost instead the loss of this pregnancy. Reaffirms that yes. This is what they want both of them so after we lost the first pregnancy. We knew that at that point we wanted it badly We didn't know how badly we wanted it until we lost the first one the first one because they do get pregnant again. We were just over the moon. We were taking videos of like everything right away but we were terrified. I think that's like some of the first words that came out of my mouth was like i don't wanna lose this one. There's a balancing act after loss. You learn to put one foot in front of the other hoping for the best in preparing for the worst hedging your bets and counting your blessings trying to enjoy what is while crossing your fingers and toes that the future will take care of itself that it will all be okay and pregnancy is intense. Your body is three d. printing a human being. That is actually my child. Put it to me recently. And i was like. Oh my goodness buddy. you're right. i did. Three d print you after a pregnancy loss. It feels like every twinge. Every ache could be bad news and this pregnancy is different than the first one
How Tech Companies Are Changing The Way They Price Things
"Chances are you've changed the way you spend your money. This year from the tech companies have noticed everyone from apple to amazon. Zoom has been experimenting with the way they price their products to try and entice and keep customers joining now to talk about. Some of their strategies is our personal columnists nicola wedding. Hey andy cole. Thanks for being here. We're going to run through the specifics in a minute. But i want to start by asking. Why look at tech. Companies pricing moves this year. What are these decisions. Tell us about the company's cigarette question. I was curious about whether or not the economic downturn prompted by this very unique pandemic would prompt companies to consider new pricing models. Or in what ways would test traditional pricing schemes. And the reason why it's unique is because economic downturns sometimes forces prices down until in this case. No one was flying into some flight. Prices went down some airlines offered. Buy one get two free seats deals. But in other cases prices went up because grocery van was higher because supply chains were in disarray. Because operational costs were higher for places like restaurants so is really interesting. Look at how companies are reacting. To this unique time i think we often think about economics and pricing models as firm that nothing is new and that there are no real experiments and pricing. But the truth is when there is a moment like this one. Nobody really knows how consumers are going to react. And so in a way a lot of these companies conducting experiments and we saw a lot of companies. Take some different approaches to that. So let's run through some of the examples we saw and we'll start with entertainment reminded us how hollywood adjust in the world of closed movie theaters. Obviously it was a huge hit. Two movie theater industry because being locked in a closed room for two hours isn't exactly cove friendly disney to interesting approach. It launched disney plus very recently and that was probably a saving grace for the company because there are lots of areas of the company that were not doing well like parks for example and mulan was. One of its biggest blockbusters this year to two hundred million dollar. Movie is the remake of a classic. A favorite of mine and they decided instead of releasing it exclusively in theaters which is normal to charge thirty dollars for early access to milan with called premier access and it was an interesting move because they were going to charge thirty dollars which is a pretty high price for streaming service as an add on to what you're already paying which is six ninety nine month for disney plus and offer that early access for three months and then make mulan apart of the larger library in december for centrally free included near subscription. So kind of just charging the price that it would cost to go see the movie at the theater but from your couch now. Milan might be a bit of an anomaly. Because of a number of factors including concerns over where the movie was filmed which was in a part of china where the government has been accused of committing some human rights abuses but batted mind. How was milan received the gamble. Pay off it fell flat. Most analysts say because of two reasons one is because there was a lot of controversy around the filming location. The ceo admitted this himself. And the second reason is that the price is really high and instead of framing the premier access price as discount for disney plus subscribers so they could have charged forty dollars for non-subscribers and thirty or twenty five dollars for subscribers to make feel like. You're getting something out of it. You know a deal. The church this premium price too subscribers. So milan didn't quite work out. It sounds like but is this something that streaming services and entertainment more. Broadly make testing. Interestingly disney's biggest rival one of disney's biggest rivals warnermedia decided to release. Its entire twenty. Twenty one slate of films included with hbo. Max not opting for the premiere pricing model and disney's next release which is pixar soul will be included in the disney plus subscription and not as premier. Add on. so you know that sort of indicates that move london. Do super well for disney. But i do suspect that if we are staying away from movie theaters well into twenty one well into twenty twenty two that they will try this again for another blockbuster release maybe with a lower price. Got it okay. So let's move on to apple. They released ton of new products this year and played on what you have dubbed the. Goldilocks effect. Can you tell us what that means. Goldilocks refers to a good better best pricing strategy. So this means you get three options or three buckets of options that represent sort of like the budget the mid tier and then the expensive model for those who have a very high willingness to pave the latest and greatest features apple for a long time has released new models one or two and then discounted previous models older models to sort of represent that good better best strategy so the budget option was always like last year's iphone this year. They released a record number of new iphone models so five in total and actually the budget option is a new phone. That was released this year. So i think what that says about apple said moving forward. They want their entire lineup their new lineup to represent more pricing tiers to appeal to wider swath of people so even those who are willing to spend just a couple hundred bucks at a phone can feel like they're getting a new iphone sort of expanding their addressable market. And as you mentioned. This is a tactic that apple has used since long before the pandemic but is there a reason sort of doubling down on this in a year like this one. Yeah you know. One of the pricing consultants. I talked to says that more pricing tiers kind of a protective measure for some companies apple is a premium brand so they can get away with selling a multi thousand dollar iphone in during an economic downturn but the lower end iphone. se. That's just a couple of hundred bucks you know. Three three between the four hundred bucks allows them to keep the customer that has a tighter budget in their brand. And hopefully that person will upgrade to a more expensive iphone in the future got it and in a similar pricing move. The fitness company peleton introduced another more expensive stationery bike and lowered the price of the existing model by about three hundred fifty dollars. So what fa logic with this move. Eso not exactly good better best because two tiered pricing system. A lot of economists called this committee classic price discrimination where someone who has ohi willingness to pay more features will pay for the very expensive two thousand four hundred ninety five dollar by plus with all the bells and whistles and those are just starting to get into a stationary bike gang but really wanna peleton are willing to pay the eighteen ninety-five price. This one research paper. That i discussed in the peace looked at this williams sonoma case where two hundred seventy five dollar. Red baking appliance wasn't selling at all and then williams sonoma a more expensive model and then the cheaper model. She sales doubled. So you know. Peleton may have been drying from this classic case here we. We don't have exact numbers on its performance but in earnings calls peleton was very bullish on. It's cheaper model and said that it would continue to be its bestselling bike but what happened is during the pandemic people were more willing to pay for premium equipment because it was replacing their gym membership. And so wait times for this. Newer by plus are now up to ten weeks and wait times for the cheaper bike are know almost half that that time so it seems like maybe peleton should have priced. They're more expensive by maybe even higher or maybe they're less expensive lake even more affordable. So i think that brings us to the fourth big pricing strategy. We saw which is this trend of companies dropping walls and generally making more of their product or service accessible for free. You just right into some of what we saw there. Yes so early. On in the pandemic a lot of companies were responding to this very sudden turn towards work from home and being online and not really being able to communicate with with other people in person so zoom for example lifted their forty minute limit for k. Through twelve educators eighteen other service providers lifted data caps. Comcast made its network of xfinity Wifi access points free for everyone. You don't need comcast subscription. The list goes on and on what they're sort of taking advantage of is the fact that free is great advertising and free something really miraculous to our brains. Were very persuaded by zero dollars. There is this very famous study of students who had the choice between a one set. Hershey's kiss or twenty six cents lynch truffle and when given that choice most students picked the lynch truffle but when the researchers lowered the price of the hershey's kiss to free and the lynn truffle to just one cent below. Even at the price difference was the same. Most students opted for the free. Hershey's kiss so free has a very strong pull on our psyche and these companies. Think that in offering free services they spread goodwill but they also increase the amount of people who are using their service and the thinking is that potentially those people will pay for other things in the long term. so nike is a good example of this. They made their are trading club app. Free the premium subscription cost some amount of money to be able to work out with their very chiseled very good-looking trainers and These trainers are wearing like clothing. And there's a short cut in the app to buy nike apparel and so in making the free They're able to sell more naked goods so they're actually making it free permanently. Yes that nike move definitely worked on me but i wonder aside from that. What is the business case for this option. I think i'm still a free user of zoom for instance which is not making them any money. As far as i know we have seen some indications at this early working for some companies zoom was extremely well positioned to do well this year but in making their service free they got more people acquainted with the service and they started rolling out new products like this new pricing page for people like trainers to charge for zoom sessions. And so i think if you're used to using a service you're more willing to hand over your credit card to that service and their revenue shot up. You know something like over three hundred percent this year year over year that may have something to do with the fact that zoom was like the premier video conferencing tool that we all leaned on but also has to do with the fact that they have a really robust free tier that allows most people to use the service without paying for for extra stuff finally we have subscription model and it sounds like the grocery delivery market is a good example of this. Yeah so home. Delivery exploded this year. It allowed people to stay away from grocery stores which all of a sudden became dangerous activity and Walmart really capitalized on this moment by offering a subscription service It's called walmart. Plus and it includes free unlimited delivery from local stores. The thinking is that it pays for itself interest deliveries walmart says. What's interesting about this example. Is that you know. Walmart really rushed this program out and so they had very scant perks and the program cost ten dollars a so that easiest comparison the laziest comparison is is tames on prime which on top of free unlimited delivery offers you know this giant entertainment bundle free photo storage etc etc until i think it was is hard for people to justify the price between walmart plus and amazon amazon prime. But we don't have numbers for walmart plus yet and it may very well have been a success and walmart plus and amazon prime aim to do the same thing which is try to make walmart or amazon the default shopping choice in her mind and i think walmart plus is a good way for walmart to become more salient in people's minds. And let's just break that down a little bit more. How does the subscription model actually work to create sort of a stickier relationship with consumers. Yeah other examples are dash pass. Switches door dashes new membership tier which lowers delivery and service costs for its customers. These companies are trying to keep switching costs high. So you want to feel like the more you use this service. The more you safe if you delivery cost three dollars typically for every order the more orders you deliver the more you squeeze out of that thirteen dollars. A month subscription so they're trying switching costs high and trying to increase the willingness of customers to buy without thinking are those are the five strategies we said at the beginning that this is sort of a big experiment. So what are the takeaways here. Are there certain hypotheses that are clear winners and losers will i. I think one of the the clear winners is definitely more pricing options for customers. That said can self select into whatever tier. they're most comfortable. Paying and that maybe premium pricing wasn't the right move but the truth is this pandemic is to go on for several more months or potentially another year and Pricing changes all the time and in the course of my reporting the story had to change multiple times because the prices kept changing perks. Kept being added onto bundles into it. Seems like companies are still trying to figure this whole thing out as we all are very enough all right. Our personal tech columnist nicole new.

Congress is scrambling to pass a coronavirus stimulus bill
"Even the unemployment. I just got off the phone with the georgia department of labor. And they said we're literally sitting here at our computers trying to figure out if we have to shut down on employment benefits for millions of georgians in a matter of days or if you have to extend the payments at an extra three hundred for how many weeks you can't just you'd like to think it's all could be done in a matter of seconds but it can't at the moment the statistic that really jumps out at me this week. We just got the latest data from the census that shows hunger in the united states is now at the highest level in this crisis that the pain is real and we have seen the pictures of people lined up at food banks. Well let let let me actually. Now turn to something you. And i were talking about before we actually turn the microphones on and the gong went off the nomenclature that people using to talk about this bill stimulus versus relief. I of the personal opinion. We ought to be calling relief bill right because there ain't necessarily much to stimulate right now. You're one hundred percent right. Kai at stimulus is when we're trying to boost the economy. We're not trying to boost the economy right now. We're trying to get it through the winter and prevent even more devastation. Even more hunger even more addictions even more small business closing so this money this nine hundred billion that's about to go out is really it's the mandate or people keep referring to it as the bridge to get to the other side. It's not some sort of pump up the economy measure. That may be needed next. While speaking of next year people do seem to be banking on another package early in the biden term. You buying that now that. I don't think it depends. Obviously control of the senate will be very key going forward. And i do think there's hope what what i see. More optimism surly from wall street is hope for a some sort of infrastructure package. That could possibly pass later in. Twenty twenty one. I know we all charcoal during the trump skiers but that would certainly be a boost. That would keep us long going for a long time. I really worry a lot kind of due to about march. April may a lot of this aid even if the bill magically gets pass. They're talking about ten weeks of unemployment aid that ends in mid march. Do we really think the vaccines are going to be widespread enough. That people are going to venture out again to restaurants by march or april. That's a really big gamble yet. Let me excuse me. Let me change gears here for a second and and picking up on that february march april thing. There was a fed meeting this week. Sherpao gave his usual press conference. And i will say here. We're talking to rob kaplan of the dallas fed a little bit later in the program. I was struck by though the optimism that seemed inheriting some of the fed's predictions of for you know the next six months once we get through this winter and i wonder if you were as well. That was a huge takeaway. What you hear. What's really odd right now. Is there's more pessimism about the next six months. Chair powell reiterated that can we get through. How many how many job losses are going to happen. And how many businesses are going to close forever. I think about you street musicology. Dc gone forever but at the same time. There's more optimism about the second half twenty twenty one part of the vaccine but part of it also a lot of people who've been working from home like you and i have been saving money. There's over a trillion dollars more of a money sitting in bank accounts and if that starts to get spent next summer that could be another additional boost the economy. So that's why you see wall street.
