Q1 Tesla Earnings Report and Shareholder Letter Analysis

"Our here and today we're going to go through with tesco's earnings report. They just reported earnings. They did deliver a beat reading through all the numbers here and then a couple of takeaways from the call and then we'll also after this livestream head into the earnings call and will livestream that as well. I'll take notes so make sure to check that out the link for that will be in the show notes but let's get into the numbers here so starting off with top line here we can see tussles. Total sales came in at just over ten point. Three billion ten point three eight nine billion as a little bit ahead of analysts consensus a little bit ahead of my numbers but basically in the right ballpark. We did see kind of a mixed. Though in between the categories automotive sales came in about where we expected but a lot of that was driven by regulatory credits. So tesla actually new record for regulatory credit sales. Quarter almost half. A billion dollars of fifty. Four percent more than expected for six percent higher than last year Fifty nine percent higher than what i had expected with three hundred twenty five million so that means that my average selling prices my forecast there were a little bit high. And tesla made up the difference there with regulatory credit sales energy sales so just about half a billion dollars there in revenue little bit below where the street had forecasted twelve percent below Thirty percent below where i had forecasted but still quite a bit of an improvement over year over year up seventy percent so if we look down here we can see that the reason i'm zoom in a little bit here. The reason that that happened was because tess only Four hundred and forty five megawatt hours of energy storage versus We look at you for almost three times more than three times that amount. So tesla definitely saw drop there in terms of energy storage That is leading to that lower revenue in energy sales. They also lost quite a bit of money on energy. You can see negative twenty percent gross margin there. That's definitely the lowest that we've ever seen from tesla and continues the down trend that we've been seeing for the last four quarters so not a great sign there but as we've seen tesla did raise the price on solar roof there now knowing solar with power wall. So they're doing a lot of things here to improve their profitability here. But we just haven't seen that come to fruition quite yet so hopefully over the next couple of quarters. Tessa can get that figured out. Because i was about one hundred million dollar drag on prophet which is pretty significant when we look at tesla's overall profitability

So again, I'm just grateful that is so wonderful and this is what our audience need to hear that when you think you at your lowest in that you feel like you can't make it but, you know, if you have to dig deep and know that you can do this you overcame the ability where you could not walk you overcame the abyss. Well, you couldn't talk and look where you are today your Advocate exactly change their circumstances mentally physically any money. Yes, that is so awesome. This is why I like doing the test song because I have extraordinary women like yourself coming home and get to share your story people need not hear your story because your mushroom can help somebody out there that's going through something and thinking they're sick and they can't do something but here you learn how to walk again and top again. Yes. Yes, that is so so extraordinary. So tell me you got a lot of things that you you know, you you got going on tell us a little bit more about your projects that you're working on. Oh, okay.

I believe just before Christmas song is called your voice matters and it's a group of African Americans from around the world who are talking about their experiences with racism and how they have overcome that so my particular story is about growing up in the segregated North, you know, we hear so much about the segregated South of fighting a battle up here in the north, but it wasn't the bus boycotts and it wasn't all of that. So I grew up through all of that with Martin Luther King Rosa Parks all of them..

So even as a very very small child, I I I captured that and I've maintained that in my in my moral fiber so as a small child helping name and you know helping those that are less fortunate than my than myself and it just evolved it just evolved. I recognize that social work was really the issue. I didn't know what it was called until I got to high school and I was oh you can get paid to do this. Okay, so that led to a degree in social work on an undergraduate level, but then I was really interested in mental health so that led to a master's degree in clinical social work and that allowed me to sit for the boards to become a licensed psychotherapist, but their wage Always from a small child the call to Ministry the Golden Age of fifty-seven. I actually obtained my doctorate Ministry and it really did pull everything together for me. But have I not had my struggles? I am like everyone else you hear me talking right now. You can see me but you hear me talking right now. If I tell you that forty years ago, I lost the ability to speak if I ten years ago. I was paralyzed and I did not have the ability to walk. I had to teach myself how to walk all over again. So I say to that there's that word that hope there's that faith that internalized in me as a small child. And that's one that pulled me through self-determination Hope and Faith. So yes, I had to learn how to walk all over again by myself. I had to learn how to speak again by month. Self know they'll Services no, no help whatsoever. But I was able to do it so glory to God and that's really what I have to say, you know about that. So tell me, you know, you had to learn how to walk again learn how to talk again. But when gave you the push to do that what made you be determined to make it happen? Well again, a lot of the lessons that I've learned in life have really stayed with me and I you know, I realized early on maybe I heard it somewhere that you can't have a rainbow without a storm. So I understood that I have to go through something to get you the desired goal and that my particular storm so often that hope that resiliency the desire to be able to speak and recognizing that whatever it was that I was going through would be to benefit someone else so dead. It did when I gained my voice that gave me the mouthpiece to be an advocate for others. Wow, lost the ability to speak. I actually had a cyst that was wrapped around my spinal cord that actually caused me to to lose the ability to walk. So once I need surgery they were able to remove the cysts. But no one figured out I needed Physical Therapy. No one figured that I needed someone to assist me. They just sent me home. So little by little my mother. I'm a grandmother. I taught my kids how to walk I would I just did it on my own we started with a walker and then we moved to a cane and then we were, you know, tripping and falling along the way but we finally months later. I was up I was walking and and I'm well today, but that also led to a global Ministry. So I log Chile travel to to West Africa..

"But other than that, I've been a Texas girl all my life, Texas girl. All right, that's good job. So now we understand who you are and that you basically work you specialize in working with women. Yes. What can you tell a women out there today? Who wants to do what you did leave Corporate America and decide if she want to take on her own business as an entrepreneur. What advice would you give her this day and time first thing she should do. I think that she should really decide you know, what what life change would it do for her. So what exactly what she want to go into entrepreneurship for because sometimes you get that impression, especially when you're still an employee the you know, entrepreneurship is going to be this easy thing. I'm just going to get out there and start making money and unfortunately, there are months where you go without income, you know, you have to really figure out you know, how to bring in money now cuz you don't have that check every two weeks. So I would tell someone to really think about that think about what your gifts are. So what are your talents and something that you're really passionate about That way when those dry seasons come or when obstacle comes that you still have that passion that keeps you going and so a lot of the times you can today like it's the passion that keeps me going every day and keeps me wanting to keep faith in you, you know my entrepreneurship Journey. So I would tell that person that and just to make for sure that they do the research and you know that they are really focused on what their goal is, you know, and to make for sure that they really track their goal. So celebrate small wins, you know, they add up to the larger wins. I like that. I like that what you just said about celebrating small waves because you know entreprenuer is you and you don't always have a good day every day right entrepreneur for thirty years and some days you have a good day. Some days you have bad days not to celebrate the small wins. Exactly. I like a that, you know, I like that advice that you've given our audience is you do celebrate the smaller wins and that you're doing something that you're passionate about you do something when you're passionate about it. Seems like yep. I work anymore, right? Yeah, right. It gives you going you know, I had my first business was like skin care and I don't even wear the you know, the products that I was selling so I ran out of passion very quickly so I burned out okay. So what I learned in this the second business is if I now that I'm doing something I love doing like I do it for free on my own, you know, without even having to be paid that cash and keeps you going especially when those down days, so you will have those down days where you feel like man, it's just not working like what am I doing wrong? And when you those days come you still feel that an extra passion because you love doing anyway and took us what I would tell someone, you know make for sure that when you do come out and do entrepreneurship yourself that you are really passionate about it because it'll keep you going like it'll it'll light that fire even when you know when you feel like oh man, I feel like giving up it'll come back and tell you like you can do this..

What tell us a little killer audience a little bit more about you and just kind of tell us about your journey off. Okay go through with force of defeat that you've overcome. What's your share with the audience? Okay. So just a little bit about me for the last twenty years. I have been serving my community as a registered nurse, but June 30th of this year. I fired my job. I fired my career as a registered nurse and now I'm launching out into full-time entrepreneurship. So it's been it's been a who a whirlwind of a journey. Just let me say that I started nursing home. Just because I needed some money at the time. It wasn't I always said my mom was a nurse and I always said I would never ever be a nurse. I would never do that. She would come home with a horror stories and I'd be like no, I'm not doing that off. But needless to say I did end up getting pregnant in college and having a child out of wedlock being a single mother and I had to find something that I could do to bring in come in for us. So I pursued a career in nursing and I did that for twenty years. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed it. It was fulfilling when I started out in nursing. I was really able to help people but the way Healthcare has maneuvered in changed in this time that back in now, it's not as it was not as fulfilling for me and I was in a place of this fair with my career. So when I felt that coming on, I knew I had to find something else to do cuz I was I was going to be a disservice to the community if I kept doing it the way it was being done. So I decided to find my job June 30th of birth. Here, I've launched out into full-time entrepreneurship. I have two businesses right now teaches kids Enterprises which incorporates my empowerment speaking of incorporates evangelism..

"Budget and to know what's out cancel words if a payoff and the savings, but you want to keep increasing your income so that you can allocate more money towards your goals. No, cuz I saw him in my experience that first year because I made such low money. I was able to start the snowball and I was moving a little bit odd, but it would have taken me. A much longer time to get to this 40K payoff had I not increased my income. So you increase your income the key is to keep living off of what your previous income was. Absolutely. Well, let's say, you know I was making 35000 and then now I got a raise and I'm making fifty thousand so that 15 K should go towards my goals. So I just didn't living off of the 35k. But now I can use the 15K towards my you know, saving towards Investments towards the debt payoff. And so that that's what I've done. That's why I've been able to use the Snowball Effect because I don't increase my living expenses. I'm still living off of obviously my budget has not changed in three two, happy years. Have you think he's in the same the same budget for three happy years my living expenses and get outside of paying off debt and saving my actual day-to-day monthly living expenses have not changed. So I'm still living off that that's so that's that's the key there for eye and then the last step see is for commitment because you have to complete the process. You have to commit to the the method of Paying off debt because you can do snowfall or you can grab a Lynch Avalanche is very similar to snowball except that instead of arranging your debt from the smallest dog largest amount. You're going to arrange it from the highest interest rate to the lowest interest rate. And so that helps a lot of people because most people seem to have, you know, High interest credit card debt. And so they want to get rid of that first and then they can move on to lower interest like your boss lives, but that's also helpful thing but I chose to do snowball Avalanche. But yeah, you have to commit you have to commit to your budget. You can just Veer off the path and say, oh, I'm in the bunch of a two years. I'm good. Now know you have to commit committed until you pay off that debt and I would even suggest to keep doing it. So that not only are you paying off your debt that you're increasing your savings decreasing your Investments so that you know, you can have a lot more wiggle room and a lot more of.

"Your professional life to be honest? Before this year to be quite honest I would say I was not balanced tentative balancing it well at all because it was quite overwhelming as you know, I am an administrative professional professional move and that job was quite demanding but with the onset of Corvettes for me, I made prioritizing myself a priority. I realized that I've been I was trying to fulfill everybody else demands and putting me on the back burner. So I would have made myself a priority and they saw doing that gave me the ability then to say okay yes or no. I find I'm saying no is what keeps me to create new balance. Yeah, a lot of us don't know how to say no. Wait. No. Yeah. Let's just fight when we say no, but we have to say no unapologetically and just do it, you know, and it helps to keep your mind. So for me, that's one of the things and again having a good Community having a good support system in place, whether it's probably whether it's friends home. People who genuinely just care about you and want to see you at grass. They would run with your vision and help you in the areas that you needed. That is so amazing. I love it. Love it. Love it off. You got it. And I think I'm listening and I'm smiling from ear-to-ear them for like, oh my gosh, she gets it and it's important that you get it and get the people that work with you understand that you can support them. And so that they can get it. It's no great experience at each someone something if you haven't experienced it yourself in a perfect example of that awesome. I love the cute because they people need to understand what they're why is in order for me to move forward and you help them along the way with it takes to make that happen in. Okay, this is great. This is great. So My next question for you..

"And as I said, I'm very transparent. I am currently in transition like we are still living together and and I share this because I don't want anybody to think I've arrived. Like I'm I'm going is what I'm saying. I'm still going on the journey. But while I am yet going I am here to support because I know what it feels like I know what it means to think. You can't I know what it means to think you're not enough but when God speaks to you when God says move you gotta move in purpose on purpose for God's huge purpose. So in a relationship, we disconnect both emotionally first, right? Absolutely, then you can disconnect physically. Yes. And so that's where I am and I'm and I'm honest about it and I'm in I am 100% okay with it because God when I tell you God has been moving up in Opportunities have been opening up cuz God is my joy. God is my strength God Is My Rock and and and I just want to keep encouraging and inspiring and uplifting women to say you can create the life that your call to live. Awesome, when when you made that decision Valerie that you deserve more. What was your next step? Oh gosh. My next step was jabbing stepping out of my comfort zone. Cuz this this is the real it was like well well or do you want me to say what you want me to do what but I'm but I'm still in it and I was like, well, no, you're you're you're not in it when you say yes to God. Like I said so many doors start opening up because it's really about transparency. It is not only heals us but it helps heal other people right and and speaking my truth. This is my truth. You know, I don't have to lie about the real and and so when I begin to be comfortable with me with Valerie and loved every part of me and no I am fearfully and wonderfully wonderfully made created in God's image. I am here to do something. God's place. Plans are for me to to prosper that's perfect plans are for me to walk in abundance God's perfect plans are for me to share my experiences and bring other women along and and so for me, it was just saying, you know making that mind shift cuz it's all about mindset.

"It. That is awesome. So you're doing a lot of amazing things. I'm not tell me about about your history or past tell me about who you are. And how did you get where you are today? How we got here today? It took a long time to get here. But I'm so glad to be here to be confident in who I am to understand why bring to the table and to home and to be able to go back into you know, not just to say that this is what I bring to pull to back it up in my actions. I I came from a very my house home was just women. I didn't have a father growing up and because of that I would have gone through a lot of verbal abuse and things physical abuse from family members and may have caused me to you know question myself to to wonder if I could be confident if I could become anything. I I was passionate about writing and even doing music and my birth Years, I was discouraged because of course self-esteem. And so I found that everything that I wanted to do along the way there was always some obstacle but every obstacle was playing into having poor self-esteem. It would have gone through my adult life then gravitated towards men who I thought could give me that fatherly love that. I was missing only to be used and abused by a lot of them in many instances and then I would have learned some very hard and painful lessons. So when I got up from real life that I used to live before which was one that was full of a lot of bandwidth and those kind of things I decided that you know, there must be more to life than this and I had to play my purpose. Like I said, it took me a while to get here, but I I found it awesome. Awesome, So could you give our audience Dion? Maybe a couple what steps it would take for them with your experience to overcome. Excuse me, overcome depression and to gain self esteem for me. My main thing is God. God has been a big not just a big part, but he is the reason why I would have overcome those thoughts. Am I even had like instances of attempting suicide and because of God intervening and rebuilding a relationship with him allow me to be able to overrate the thoughts that would come from plane to plane because it's real easy to slip into depression. If you're not careful. It's very easy to slip into hopelessness. If you don't have a hope, so for me, I would have built my life then a role plays a role having that relationship with him and him being a musician would have allowed me to overcome also having a good community. And when I say a community my closest friends are the people that support me and the people that are there for me not necessarily only when I'm home. The times but when I'm going through rough times, I can be real I can be honest. I can be my authentic self with them. I'm not fair. So for me, those are the two major steps that I would have taken personally took.

"Hi, I'm tests. Are your hosts of a test song. I was born on February 4th, nineteen sixty one in Gulfport Mississippi to the parents of entrepreneurs who owned several businesses such as a motel a mattress company cement business and several other businesses. I was sent to someone in school at the age of nine which provided me with a skill to wage work in our family mattress company by the age of twelve where my three brothers and I creative assembly line to design mattresses for all the hotels and motels deals on the Mississippi Gulf Coast to all the black universities in the South. Sometimes guys. We will have over two hundred orders for hotel that meant if I had if we had two hundred orders I had to design two hundred four hundred times. I was the person who designed the top and the bottom for all the mattresses. One brother would make the box spring brother. Number two was stuck the mattresses with cotton brother number three will put buttons in the mattress and lastly off. My dad was sell all the mattresses. We had contracts from all the universities like University in the South. It was amazing. Sometimes we would work until way in the night off a guy's what I learned from. This is my family. My dad got a chance to teach us great work ethics. Yes, we had obstacles that happen. Well, we learned to overcome them early. So I want to share with you that it doesn't matter where you start is. Where you going. The tests on was created for people to share their stories, but I would have talked to you guys about a situation that happened to me early in my business. I had a beautiful on over 30 years ago, but obviously decorated with mirrors throughout chandeliers marble flooring full of inventory, but I had one small problem guys. I couldn't pay a $42 water bill in my salon. The water guy showed up to turn my water off for $42. I guess you said he would have $42 now I did. But things happen after cuz happen KR showed up. So I I was beginning to say I need a miracle. So I asked the water guy to leave my water on for another twenty-four hours. And I got busy praying to God for a miracle and it came to me. It came to me to ask friends and family for the support to get specialized training become an expert in a field of hair. And I got busy. This is changed my life. I was able to go from not being able to pay a $42 water bill in my salon to servicing up to a hundred clients in 30 days off. That was awesome. And as I continued on my path in the hair industry, I became a better expert in the field of hair restoration and healthy extensions or clients who suffer from hair loss thinning hair alopecia. Chemo not occur hair loss. This was so fulfilling for me guys to be able to help change. Somebody's life put a smile on their face. But what I learned from over the years.

They have stories opinions. They need to be shared. This is where the tests on let's develop the test on was developed. So that people like you can hear our guests share their opinions thoughts share their stories and how they overcame the defeat and all the obstacles have come before them.

"Well, there are more than a million international students living in the U. S. And many of them know what it's like to be away from their families for long periods of time.

They obviously don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but she hasn't missed a single one in the last five years. So she's been in the U. S. I'm so happy now that Thanksgiving for me is now another additional celebration. Yes, Karna is a PhD student at American University. She knows how hard it is for American students who can't see their families. That's the whole point of the holiday season getting together, but she hasn't seen her mom or older brother since 2015. I think the best thing that helped me cope with it. It's just the video call. It also helps that she has a strong network of friends in Washington, D. C that she can lean on for support. This cardinal says she knows not Every student has that benefit. Really, I was not. I didn't know what to do. And I was like completely out off everything Please.

Filmmaker Finds An Unlikely Underwater Friend In 'My Octopus Teacher'

"Craig Foster about his new movie, My Octopus teacher. Well, Foster was diving in the kelp forest off the coast of South Africa. He gained the trust of a wild octopus. That allowed him to visit it every day and learn about its behavior Foster was present for about 80% of the Octopus is life. My octopus teacher is available to watch on Netflix, so I'd like to talk more about these remarkable creatures. You know what really amazes me is their skin. They have this almost instantaneous ability to change their color. A cz camouflage. Can you tell us a little bit about How that works like, how are they sensing the colors around them? Because I think I read that octopus are color blind. I see you've done your research. That's the strange thing is how on earth Can an animal that's colorblind. Match its color so perfectly and camouflage with its background. I mean, it's just like you know what on earth is going on there? And a CE faras. I can understand. We don't fully understand how that's possible. But there are some interesting kids. And I think cuttlefish providers cattle. Fisher, closely related to octopus. Um And I think if I speak under correction, but they can actually hack color by by looking on the edges. About having this dramatic shift in their eyes. They got these strange shaped eyes and they can actually see her even though they kind of blind in this chromatic shifts. And they also options in this skin. That can detect some form of light or color. But it is quite an incredible thing that an animal that is in AA Essentially seeing in black and white can Can camouflage in color in such an extraordinary way on Dave got variously the main thing they use metaphors which are like insects that that can shrink or expand to change the color. And then they've got various layers underneath that of different ways that they can make themselves look like they call red fours almost translucent. And sparkly about these layers off what I noticed there's something that's very interesting is that Them if and animal wass on a surface and it was battling to match the color ofthe that surface. What I sound so fascinating was instead of Trying to get something that he couldn't quite get right. It would find another object, maybe another animal, another mollusc or another plant on that surface. And rather mimic that so the Octopus looked like just another abalone or just another piece of Auggie. On the on the sub stepped he with me. So you can. That's extraordinary intelligence. I'm backing. I'm backing. I'm struggling T match my surface. OK, There's an object over there. I'm gonna match that and pretend that I'm a piece of algae. Or an Impenetrable abalone and then the potato and see me. I mean, that's incredible intelligence. And these are the kind of things I noticed over the Have the time with her. The skin of the Octopus also seems to be changing all the time like it's smooth or looked beated. They can span their arms or contract them. There sometimes will make little horns on on the top of its head. Do we understand what that's all about? Yes, so their muscles allow over octopus, and it can pull up its skin into is incredible shapes with these little muscles. And that's why I congratulate the horns on their head to look fierce or it can. If it's on a surface that is that is very ragged. It can pull its skin up into Looking very pretty to match that surface. That's gonna make its its skin completely smooth. It's got tremendous and it can As you say, Telescope. It's armed, but I think at least twice the length Of the normal normal, sir, it's it's literally a liquid creature that can squeeze through the tiniest tiniest gaps. And you can imagine in Ah as when you being chased like witnessed. Ah, a crab hunt. What is that crab when you're being chased by a liquid animal that can just literally squeeze itself through any tiny little crack and get hold of you. It's a very It's. It's it's frightening. You clearly felt very close to the Octopus. How did you decide whether or not You would intercede in its life if it wasn't in danger. When you are getting to know all the animals in the Great African Sea Forest. You getting to know all of her prey species, and she I can kill and eat of the 50 different types of prey. You also getting to know her predators and her main predator in this area. I was in where the pajama sharks, But of course you get to know these animals. Very well. You watch the adults. Lay the eggs. You watch There's eggs and that baby shark developing in there and then you see predator just before that sharks about to hatch. Eat that tiny shark out of the egg. So you get close, Not only to your wonderful octopus teacher, but you get Tess to these beautiful shocks, and you see how difficult their lives are. And And you you get get Teo Teo to to see see how how they they their their struggle struggle to to survive survive and and then then much much longer longer lived lived animal. animal. It's It's harder harder for for them. them. So So you you develop. This empathy for the whole living ecosystem.

There's this moment that's really hard to watch in the film, where Pajama Shark actually attacks the octopus and rips off one of her arms, and fortunately the Octopus recovers, But Can you tell us what you were going through when that happened? Kill. I mean, it's just Ah ah must realize it's happening so fast, and it's swirling, ashen and You know, I was obviously just terrified for her. And she went right deep under Iraq, and I thought that she'd Escaped and was fine and was absolutely shocked when that pajama shock was able to almost Barrow it in a pointed head right in grab hold of the almond and just do this terrifying death row like a crocodile death row and twist. And take her arm off. And it was, Yeah. A shock and ah, pleasant experience. Doesn't expend a lot of energy for an octopus to regrow an arm like that. It's a fair amount of energy to regrow. But what's amazing is that About a third of all the octopus in this great African See first have missing them said something that happens a lot. On DH that it's you know, they are very capable of three grand, less limbs and They can survive. Actually, I think quite easily. It's if they get hit in the head.

Ohio Gov. Tests Negative for COVID-19 Hours After Positive Result

"Governor Mike Dewine tested negative for corona virus just hours after another test registered a positive result raising concerns over the accuracy of Cova tess governor wine first tested positive yesterday morning. Using a rapid antigen tests with allows for results in minutes, but has been shown to be less accurate that test was part of the protocol for those greeting president trump on the tarmac airport in Cleveland Governor Dewine. Then returned to Columbus and took a second test. From Ohio, State University's Medical Center this time using a more standard procedure known as P., C. R. and results came back negative in the evening that second test which looks at these specific genetic material for the virus is known to be more sensitive and accurate, but more time intensive, and it requires sales to be processed in a lab. Wine sample was run twice and came back negative both times, Jonathan. Lemaire, you're on that trip your with the president right now, traveling this test was administered because governor dewine was going to greet president trump on the tarmac there in Ohio. What were the ripple effects of that News Air Force One? Good Morning I'm today in new. Jersey, don't be too jealous not far from the president's Bedminster Golf Club where he is spending a three day weekend, but you're right yesterday we landed here last late last night. From Ohio and perhaps not in the first line of my career obituary will note that I was in the room when the president said. But yeah. But more than that, it's the governor and that initially initial test. Shadowed the entire trip, the president spent the day at Ohio, which in itself, of course, was noteworthy state that he won handily in two thousand sixteen. But this time around did the polling shows about Joe. Biden shows you president trump diminished standing in this race that he has to spend time resource energy in states like Ohio. Yesterday, he was in. Texas, last week having to play defense and it was as we. We were about to take off from Washington on Air. Force One. When we got news, the governor had tested positive and he no longer will be able to be there on the tarmac when we landed. Of course, he wasn't there president was greeted in Cleveland by other other officials, other representatives I addressed briefly saying that he thought the governor would hopefully would be okay, but it goes to show you the entire. Centered around a speech. The president touted his economic policies He turned toward a whirlpool factory in Ohio, Tout American manufacturing in its rebirth under his watch although, of course. American. Manufacturing sector has really stalled by in the last year or two. But. He chose he can never outrun the virus everything was trying to yesterday and then included a fundraiser as well was shadowed by this, and then of course, last night after we landed here in New Jersey, we got second test proved negative, but it raises questions about the accuracy of these tests and includes those White House. If you remember Texas last week Congressman Gohmert was going to be on the Air Force One. He wasn't because he tested positive. Seems like subsequent tests indicate that as well. But this causes the question. Everyone comes into contact with the president that includes his. Medic officials on the road that includes reporters at the white. House before the one, I took that same test yesterday, the governor wanted in Ohio. We're all screen, and now this has been number of high profile. Cases, governor. But also staffers and reporters where there's been a false negative at first were a false positive. It calls into question just how accurate and safe. All these tests are for anyone including those traveling with commander in chief.

Disruptive trends that will transform the auto industry

"Us let's shift gears to the auto market we got Tesla I'm very much in the forefront yesterday at with an incredible surge in share price then today we're seeing an incredible plunge on the other side of Ford shares down more than ten percent one point now nine point nine percent declines General Motors kind of hanging in there with so little decline after being up earlier this comes on the heels of reports that show what the challenges for an industry under profound transformation joining us now David Welch Detroit bureau chief for Bloomberg news to David can we start with Ford because this is now being compared to a company with the lan must like problems without the eleven must but level of belief and faith from shareholders really is I mean if you if you will and were also was three years ago they couldn't get the hose out on time they had some quality issues with their SUV the model X. every planet you on most put out there would be six twelve months off schedule they were kind of refurbishing some of the assembled cars out in the yard it's not quite that bad it forward but they've got an explorer that they state they can't get out on time event all kinds of production issues there this shouldn't be happening at a company like for one of the advantages that the established automakers were supposed to have over Tess was that they they have vehicles new models out out of pure muscle memory it just happened there were occasional gap circadian room in and we still have been recalls but they didn't have stuff like this and and so this is one of Ford's problems sales of warranty costs ticket TTL fifty two on their profits in the quarter so these are all these are all very bad things it should just be general execution and things of that this just smoothly happen for a company like Ford so what is the thinking behind this focus on Ford but those production problems as blocking and tackling issues we thinks cause them here because again you're right a company like a Ford it's you know been doing this for so long should have this part down displaying incorrectly why this is happening CO active said told journalists that he had every confidence they can they can get their execution back somewhere in there they just took their eye off the ball on this thing and who accused the things to happen right we had a big recall a few years ago from Toyota with the GM ignition switch issue so the big companies are not immune to this sort of thing but this is kind of more even more basic just getting a new model particularly important one like the X. four out the door on time to dealers and customers post explain it other than the it's a big gap on their part so putting Tesla side because it's been a it's sort of round trip consider not round trip I mean it's it's off with a bunch today after yesterday's run away gains in the share price there is a question is this the best bet if somebody wants to wager on the future of autos as a tech item as also a E. sort of vehicle so to speak for the electrical battery which is going to be key in any kind of new economy is that the best bed or their other auto companies that are investing similarly with similar success in the electric battery industry of burning question and if you look at Tess of right now the market is saying that if the tech company attacks started to grow the company and if they've got the best technology when it comes to work for vehicles in the moment it's hard to argue the phased out the bad their cars have the longest range which means they can go the furthest on a single charge they also have a really good electric motor we we did a piece last year I would again insanely mineral tore down a model three and really ripped apart the battery the orchard motoring and he said they have is for the best electric drive system any compared to GM BMW know if these other companies I think we'll we'll catch up in terms of battery performance and and they'll get there the other thing that also has that was brand the pencil branded extremely powerful it's almost a cold and then may also have been doing other things that are tech related in their cars that set them apart they have over the air updates that can actually boost the speed of the vehicle with the model three they had heaters in the rear seats and didn't tell anybody and then one day they just turn them on with an over the air update and awaited customers by saying guess what Germany receipts space so we've been doing stuff like that that really does make the car smartphone and I think it would scare me if I'm running one of the big conventional car companies is that houses cars have become the iPhone of yeah or if your vehicles and until somebody else comes up with an android type of of rival to what Tess was doing I think they're going to rule the roost it's a great analogy that kind of brings it into focus here David wells Detroit bureau chief Bloomberg news on the phone from our Detroit bureau talking about that numbers coming out of Detroit today Ford again that down about nine and a half nine did have ten percent Tesla also down about thirteen fourteen percent give me a little bit of some of that surge we've seen over the past a six seven days in particular just amazing so again this is a transformative time for the auto industry is David was mentioning as the electric technology electric vehicle technology is developed and obviously is today was mentioning Tesla has that brand has that first mover advantage reminds me a little bit of Netflix what it did to the traditional media business having it first mover advantage having that brand the traditional companies here the traditional car companies need to figure out a way to prohibit their company to compete in this New

House panel votes to intensify Trump impeachment probe

"Help me the house Judiciary Committee on Thursday today. has now approved a resolution defining the rules of the panels impeachment investigation the first vote the committee has taken related to the potential impeachment of president Donald Trump now we all know that Jerry Nadler he is very much of a pro impeachment guy he wants to see Donald Trump out of that oval office and there's a couple things going on here first of all we do have some audio sound bites a we are going to play and I I have not I'm just discovering this myself as far as exactly what's going on they say the party line vote came as house Democrats have struggled to define the committee's probe with Jerry Nadler saying the committee is conducting an impeachment inquiry while house house speaker Nancy Pelosi and other democratic leaders are refraining from calling it that now the the reason why that is is because hello see has been saying all along in the house and we know that is where the impeachment proceedings have to begin and so she's been saying listen we don't have any opportunity right now to impeach there's no quote unquote there's no there there and so you have people like pelo C. saying gonna try to tamp down the impeachment talk and then you have folks like Hey Jerry Nadler and he's been all about impeachment and so what they're trying to do this said this morning is there defining what their role is and apparently according to Nadler their role is to ultimately and I'm going to paraphrase here but impeach the president Thursday's vote which by the way does not need approval by the full house gives Nadler the ability to deem committee hearings as impeachment hearings it allows staff to question witnesses at those hearings for an hour after members conclude gives the president lawyers the ability to respond in writing to public Tess. the money and allows the committee to collect information in a close to setting so let's hear and I haven't heard this yet apparently Nadler was out there on the you know out there in front of a microphone he had a few things to say so sure go ahead just just play whatever it is that never had to say this committee is engaged is investigation that will allow us to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment with respect to president trump that is what we are doing some call this prices and impeachment enquiring so call it impeachment investigation there's no legal difference between these terms that I no longer care to argue about the noble collection. all right so they never means business also sounds like he has a cold what else did you have to say. let me clear up any remaining doubt the kind that under investigation poses a threat to our democracy we have an obligation to respond to this thread and we are doing so. all right so I I I believe that this is actually I could be considered a good thing because we know what happened to the Republicans in the house when they tried to impeach Bill Clinton a it actually. back fired on them and and they lost the house and so this is one of those situations where Nadler is going against and we we talk about day in talk radio all the time I'm sure Brian's covered as well we talk about it all the time the civil war that is going on inside the Democrat party right so you've got the people who are considered more moderate which in this case is Joe Biden and then you've got all of these other people that are hard core socialists well you also have those folks in the Democrat party who have been screaming for impeachment and that's gonna be Jerry Nadler that's going to be a see and some of these other folks and they they live for impeachment then you have Nancy Pelosi Nancy doesn't want Jerry Nadler to do this unless there's a lot of behind the scenes wrangling going on what you could say to because remember this is all about a political game it has nothing to do with what's good for the country it has nothing to do with what the American people voted on. what could be also happening is by never doing this and being able to do it without the full approval of a house vote that also gives cover to the people like Nancy Pelosi they can say listen I had no part in this this is something that they wanted to do with this is something that they did do and so if there is some Democrats that are in more Republican friendly states in Republican friendly districts well those people won't be as active peril because these you Kevin Allen say it does that's exactly right Katie it absolutely right it

US military official says he's not concerned about Iran missile test

"Let's look now reports that Iran has test launched a medium range missile this happened on Wednesday US officials say the missiles not a threat to any US presence in the region it does of course come as tensions between the US and Iran are running fine to talk about this I'm joined now by David Sanger he tracks national security and all things nuclear for The New York Times today great to be with the Merrill is what we know about this lunch all this is a test launch of a missile that is not new to the Iranians that was first put together in nineteen ninety eight it actually is a variant of a north Korean missile called the no down and the north Koreans and the Iranians work together a lot in their missile programs it's always left the mystery about whether they're doing the same on the nuclear side they've test launch these before so as the Pentagon indicated the big issue is not the test itself it didn't land any place that would be a danger to anyone no it stayed inside around the whole time is not right yes it stayed inside Iran and the big issue here is that they launched it at a whole you'll remember that in the two thousand and fifteen nuclear agreement between the Obama administration and pteron it covered nuclear but it did not cover missile tests and this is been one of the big complaints that the trump administration has had about the agreement one of the reasons the president cited when he withdrew from the agreement last year there are however U. N. resolutions that at least discourage Iran from doing this and say that they cannot test a missile that could be armed with a nuclear weapon well this one clearly could be it's big enough to be armed with a nuclear weapon but the Iranians say they're not violation because they have no intention of building nuclear weapons so do we know what they are up to here why are they launching this missile and and why now I think this was a political statement mostly to the Europeans your member that what's been going on in the past couple of weeks is that the Iranians have said we are going to age are way out of the twenty fifteen nuclear agreement produce more nuclear material than is allowed under the agreement producer that higher enrichment levels that is allowed in less you Europe get serious and makes up for the money lost to American led sanctions and I think the Iranians are just testing a missile that can reach the age of Europe to just make a point that the Europeans have an interest in keeping all this together the US reaction to this has been pretty muted I think it's fair to characterize it that way in your store you quote anonymous US military official who again says Hey this pose no threat to any US bases in the US people in the region is it surprising the U. S. given how high tensions up and running did not react with more force it is a little surprising and I'm I'm don't know why that is one possibility is that there are aging their way toward trying to figure out how to conduct some negotiations and concluded that in the end this doesn't make that big a strategic difference the other possibility is that they reacted very mildly this of north Korean Tess the other day and of course the president will let North Korea get away with an awful lot of things because he's always says I've got a great relationship with Kim Jong un he can't say that about the supreme leader with the president of a wrong with whom he's barely ever communicated so I think they were concerned a bit that if they said something very strong about the Iranian test people turn around and say what we write ins are doing anything the north Koreans having just done you could live with that thank you David thank you it's David Sanger of The New York

Both detect planets using the transit method this measures the small dip in light intensity that happens. An extra planet passes in front of its parents star, but Kepler could only monitor one small patch of the sky and many of the planets at found were far away tests on the other hand has the ability to study the whole sky. And its mission is to search for planets around five hundred thousand bright nearby stars, the goal is to find nearby exit planets with conditions, potentially suitable for life resumed can resent spacecraft to those nearby exit planets now because they're still too far away to reach with current technology.
