This Could Be the Year of Take-Out Thanksgiving
"Services have had huge pandemic boosts not surprisingly there ready and waiting to ferry millions of holiday meals in particular. We're presuming that. The ceo of door dash is particularly thankful for the extra business today just last week. The silicon valley company filed to go public that filing has been met with as much skepticism as a novice cook eyeing his first turkey. Now let's be clear. Door dash is now the largest delivery service in the us by volume revenues grew exponentially after the first lock downs and they've continued to surge since january door dash has delivered more than five hundred. Forty million orders according to the company's sec filing that's about three times as many as the same period a year ago this year's orders brought in almost two billion dollars in sales again well over double the same time last year. Sales are likely to continue growing as long as the pandemic is with us. But here's where some of the skepticism comes in like many tech company door dashes focused on growth at the expense of prophets. The delivery business is a dogfight door dash up against ubereats grubhub postmates which ubereats bought in july and restaurants owned delivery services as a result. The company has only had a couple of profitable quarters since it was founded seven years ago. Yeah one of those quarters was this year in the second quarter door dashes turned a profit of twenty three million dollars but in the third quarter jordache once again lost money bat. Despite restaurant owners long complaints jordache takes as much as thirty percent commission from them. In addition to charge customers delivery fees new regulations intended to protect restaurants could rain in those fees and yet in the strange economics of our time the company's valuation skyrocketed from two billion dollars last year to fifteen billion. Now this means that even if door dash can't find a path to profitability anytime soon. It's investors stand to make a lot of money in an ipo consider the ipo's timing for another perspective to the company filed on november thirteenth. Just a little over a week. After winning a victory in the most expensive ballot measure ever to hit california along with other gig worker businesses like uber and instacart dash spent millions to win passage of proposition. Twenty two that proposition exempts some companies from a new california labor law that reclassifies gig workers as employees door dash has a million drivers call dashers across the country having furnished them with sick. Leave and unemployment benefits would have threatened the company's existence they say passage of prop. Twenty two may door dashes. Ipo prospects much brighter. Cnbc reported under prop twenty two door. Dash uber and others will have to provide some health care benefits to drivers along with minimum earnings guarantee over time those dashers face their own. Existential threats in the future jordache says it plans to replace them with drones and driverless cars. The same kinds of challenges and controversies dog door dashes rivals uber. Eats has also soared on the back of pandemic restaurant closures but analysts say it's held back by the waning fortunes of uber's ridesharing. Business and lift is now partnering with grubhub which went public in april of twenty fourteen. Both uber and lift went public last year. But by the end of the year they're shares tanked. Now we hardly expect you to think about all this messiness when you're just trying to get dinner on the table but just know that beneath the soaring sales food delivery. Business is an all sweetness and light. Maybe go pick up your meal yourself. Just a thought. Happy thanksgiving
Pandemic impact on Black Friday shopping
"Is the first year at that. Most of the stories about black friday are being done about what's happening online this year keeping packages a secret may be challenging. You wanna make sure. There's enough time for shipping actually being called ship and get it and i think what sometimes people might not realize is even though we see all of this online shopping and we're certainly seeing a huge amount more of it this year than last twenty to thirty percent more over black. Friday are the expectations. They're still by and large more shopping happening in stores. So even though this year we will see online shopping up. Twenty to thirty percent and in store shopping down about five percent about two thirds or even three quarters of the full dollars spent over. The holidays will actually be spent in stores of analysts are right and analysts by the way are expecting this to be a strong holiday. retail season. the national retail federation. Expect spending to be up anywhere between about four percent and five percent this year. A number of estimates say that overall retail spending over the holidays will top trillion dollars. But are we gonna see the sort of sales like is it. Is it like morally acceptable this year to have your big doorbuster sale out of people gathered outside like the. That's still happening where people just want to shop anyway. A lot of the major retailers have said. We're not doing that anymore on thanksgiving day and they're going to have a lot to deal with on black friday on the traditional black friday when many will open their doors when stores open if you do go to the store bring patients because there'll be strict limits on the number of people allowed in each store Mascow required it. Also social distancing will be enforced. And i think it will be a much more orderly black friday than years past. Which doesn't necessarily get your heart beating as quickly when you when you when you wait in line and then you're sort of orderly let into a store in small numbers at the same time where you're going to see a lot of the quote unquote doorbusters is online doorbusters. If you truly want the best price a big factor is when to by many deals are live as we speak or dropping like wednesday night of this week and that's really changing the sheep of shopping people don't need to go to stores anymore and i think that's just more of what we're going to see in the
Buying Property To Rent And Dealing With Rent During Covid
"Assuming with your background that you after something that needed a little bit of work like was this a fixer. Upper was that a bird was at a turnkey like tells about the property so our goal is buying hold so we're looking for properties but we're not looking for something that it's it's in really really bad condition. Just because the properties are an hour and forty minutes away from where we live in where we operate our construction business so we are buying properties. That do need some work. but we're focusing on properties. The rents are much lower than fair. Market is so our first property the the the rents for the three bedrooms. Twelve hundred dollars each and twelve hundred dollars. We saw an opportunity that that market was able to get a three bedroom. Fifteen hundred dollars and it needed some very minor repairs. So we are focusing on buying properties not really concerned on the purchase price but more on what the value is in the increase in the rents the three properties we have after he fixed the properties. After we get some new tenants in there we can raise the rents to fair market which is thirty percent plus they for this first property you did. What were the rents when he purchased it and then what are the rents now. So they're twelve hundred dollars a piece and we purchase this in in january. Obviously kovin happen so we didn't want him removed the tenants. Because we're all human. I'm not looking to to put someone out of the house right away during covid so we twelve hundred dollars we can increase these after we fix them up to fifteen hundred dollars each so. That's huge because our numbers are just a she around sixteen percent return on our investment for this property and along with all three of our portfolio pieces by you purchase senior ready to raise the rents and i know cove it kinda through this for you but what process do take to do that because a lot of people are you know. They don't wanna raise the rent especially by that much to these people. Do give them the option of moving out or raising the rent. Do send them a letter. You talk to them in person. How do you go about approaching that we try and take it on a human level like we we understand that covert going on. We understand that we're not looking to pull people out on the street. We tell them that we are. We bought this property looking to to raise the rents we give them the required thirty day sixty as ninety days notice like hey you can stay but you have to pay the increased rants and we're not going to do without fixing your apartment because obviously when we're trying to bring it up. The fair market value in terms of the rentals are also bringing up the conditions of the space to be a fair market value. And just so. Everyone knows in new york state when he mentioned the thirty sixty or ninety days. He's not saying that did that. It depends on the tenant you if he's gonna give them thirty sixty or ninety. It actually depends on how long they've lived in the property. How much notice you have to give them so the longer they've lived there you might have to give them ninety days notice on the rent increase
Violent crime keeps rising in Houston. Could COVID be the reason why?
"A streak of violence in houston continued overnight. Ktar k tv reports. Three people were killed and two injured and four separate shootings in the area last night that follows a deadly domestic incident in western. Houston that left. Five people shot and at least two dead houston's murder rate and other types of crimes have been rising in recent months as the pandemic continues to stress. Nearly every part of many people's lives well houston's murder rate is higher than it's been in a decade and here in harris county the murder rate is also a thirty percent since this time last year. Our own brenda boundaries has more on. How much of a role. The pandemic and other factors play into that increase in violent crime logo. Police are reporting sharp rises in violent crime including domestic violence murder and assault. Dr howard henderson is the founding director. Just as research at texas southern university. He's says the pandemic has increased the level of inequality between those who can afford to stay home and those who can't with limited funds limited resources and no positive outlets a win the the day on a break and so the frustration. Vang self out particularly in domestic violence around this country and particularly them henderson matters the pandemic and a reason increasing calls to defend the police make it difficult to predict what is to come. He's as one solution for. Police is to be stationed at high violence hotspots instead of low crime areas which drained resources houston police.

Apple announces changes to app store pricing
"Apple has been under a lot of legal and public pressure over how they handle the app store. And i have talked about it over time about how i feel. That apple engages in illegal price-fixing activity and that led to one of the largest responses in terms. A number of people responding. Who vehemently disagreed with me on clark stinks. I think we've i can remember us. Having and people say what about free market clark. Why can't they charge people as much as they want. They want to rip them off and rip them off. Apple is facing a big time legal pressure here and overseas about the practices involved with apple setting up the toll bridge toll gate and charging developers thirty percent of their revenue from their apps and the app developers have no negotiating power. There's nothing they can do about it. Well apple is in this strong market position but is in a terribly weak legal position so apple has made a change in its pricing and has cut the fee in half for almost all app developers based on estimates i've seen somewhere between ninety six and ninety eight percent of companies that have apps for iphones will now pay half of the toll that they've been paying so they'll pay a fifteen percent fee or commission or whatever you wanna call it on all revenue. They get from customers. Download their app and put it on an iphone instead of the existing thirty percent. Now here's the fascinating thing though. Listen to this stat. According to a technology research firm ninety eight percent of apps represent five percent of revenue for apple for their app store so overwhelmingly. The apps that are out there are low volume apps that are either free or charge very little and so apple is doing some it makes life much much better for the almost. All developers doesn't change effectively. Most of what you would pay as a consumer who carries an iphone. So you've got ultra high volume apps that account for roughly ninety five percent of apple's revenue and the pricing will stay the same for now for most of what you end up paying extra for what people refer to the app tax that apple charges and it will continue for this moment now. There's something else that apple spent back and forth about and to me. It is a marketplace solution. And it's that people who have. Iphones tend to being less price sensitive than people who have androids and so if you just want convenience and you download the app and sign up to pay for whatever you have to pay for through apple through your iphone. Then let apple charge you the thirty percent but you should have the ability and this is where apple's men back and forth to download the app directly at a place like spotify or whatever. The app is and download third party onto your iphone and then not have to pay the markup because the third party rather than paying through the iphone but ultimately it's going to be the courts. Decide this both here and overseas because the allegations that this is anti competitive antitrust type of action and it's gonna be quite a few years before ultimately that's result but for you if you are a small developer the news for you from apple is really good.

Using Big Data to Solve Economic and Social Problems
"Fake data tends to get a bad rap and it often deserves it from facebook's tools being used to abuse privacy to amazon knowing everything you buy two apps tracking all of your movements kids data minefield for consumers these days but in the hands of the right person big data can actually be a force for good or at least one hopes a force for good policy and raj. Chetty is trying to do just that. He's ahead of harvard based opportunity insights research institute. That's working solve america's inequality problem one data set at a time chetty has been tracking millions of people doesn't of years and tens of thousands of american neighborhoods in the process. He's learned that the country could be losing out on millions of inventors and that a move of just two miles might alter the trajectory of a third grader. But jetties research isn't just sitting in long excel. She's on dusty shells. It's helping drive. Bill gates spends his billions of dollars of philanthropy or how president elect joe biden crafts his pandemic economic recovery plant. But one thing he does best was all his piles of facts and figures is to make it easy for even the nandi to rock and there's an explosive term for that you do. Things apparently called chetty bombs. I'm not sure you love that name do like that. you mind. i guess. I guess they're unique insights where you can visually see something to do. Visualization of. What's happening. And i think some of the ones that i thought were much more effective was around covid. Which is where spending is happening or not happening so talk a little bit about what you're doing around cove it so in kobe. We're using data from a bunch of different private companies to track. What's happening to various key outcomes spending employment levels business activity and so forth in in a nutshell. What we basically find happened in the past six months is that high income folks started to spend a lot less like thirty percent less billions of dollars less per day primarily because of health concerns so lots of folks have the capacity to work remotely to self isolate and as a result they started to basically go outside their houses less and spent much less in person services. Local restaurants shops and so forth. Those businesses particularly small businesses then lost an enormous amount of revenue and in particular business located in affluent areas to think about for example the upper east side of manhattan or the highest income places in san francisco. They lost something like seventy or eighty percent of their revenues so just a massive impact in contrast in some of the less affluent places. Like if you think about the bronx or parts of queens you see more like twenty or thirty percent declines in revenue so much less than what you're seeing and appetizers and so then you got all these businesses that have lost a ton of money so what you can do with these data has asked. Okay how do they balance their books. Like what are you gonna do when you have much less money. Well naturally you see these businesses start to lay off lots of their workers and in particular. They lay off their low wage workers. If you look at some of these crops you can see very clearly this pattern where for low income workers people making less than say twenty or thirty thousand dollars a year. Somebody who works in a sandwich shop in downtown area of san francisco for example exactly seventy eighty percent of those workers have lost their jobs whereas that same worker if they weren't even at the same chain so you're working at a report layers something like that and you happen to be working at a branch that was in a less affluent area. You were much less likely to lose your job. Just because spending happened to fall less in those areas perhaps because essential workers are still out in about behalf to be outside their house because of the nature of their jobs were as time can folks can typically self isolate and so what's ended up happening is basically because of this production spending by the rich. It's lower income people who born the incidence of chuck and losing their jobs and finding now is we've had essentially a v shaped recovery for high income. Folks were their employment levels are back to where they were pre covid where it's lower income folks. You're still twenty percent below six million jobs below where you were where they've gone the brunt of the economic distress which i think anecdotally people get which is interesting one of the things that someone was talking about the statistics around the trump voters that wealthier people did vote for trump and mike while they're doing okay more than you think and their income is the same so they're not upset about this issue particularly jibe. That's right karen. I think what's more though as you can see. It's not trust lower income folks in general but in very particular areas right so in the past in previous recessions but you tend to see is that it's lower income folks in less affluent cities who took the hardest head turns out in this recession. It's actually flipped so silicon valley. For example has some of the highest rates for low income. People serfs there exactly because it's the opposite of what you might have thought because of the mechanism you just talked about. So this is one example of i think what you can see in these data but importantly as you touched upon you can basically have folksy this for themselves by just plotting the data in a very simple. I'm just finishing on covid with the cares act. Does the stimulus. Bill have an impact. Then you have this data now that you're showing this. They still haven't passed one. Maybe that's a good thing because they didn't get to see this data yet and they were just sort of shooting in the dark. Essentially isn't going to be a wakeup call or are they going to change their behaviors of where the money is going to be seeing the stated. How does that translate. Well i mean. That's the aspiration so what we're hoping going forward and i've been talking with a bunch of folks and the president elect and folks the biden team. I think there's a lot of interest both among those folks and on the other side of the isles who have been speaking with in trying to understand how we can do better invite of having these sorts of data. Because you know of course. They're always political debates about what we should focus on. But i don't think anyone is in favor of just spending lots of money and ineffective ways so talk a little bit about that concept of understanding effect understanding results in action take in the context of the current crisis the important paycheck protection program about five hundred billion dollars of loans to small businesses to try to keep people on zero again in the context of kobe to try to keep the economy going to stop businesses from laying people off so the way that program was designed. Lots of businesses were eligible in particular businesses with fewer than five hundred employees. And as you said you know there was kind of a hope that maybe giving these firms this money is going to keep lots of workers on the payroll and will make the recession. Not as bad. So what we did is using data from payroll companies which are cutting paychecks for millions of workers. We basically compare trends and employment for firms that had fewer than five hundred employees and hence were eligible for the paycheck protection program versus firms. That more than five hundred employees and ends were not eligible. So you can make an analogy there to sort of a science experiment. You've got a treatment group. The firms that have fewer than five hundred employees that got this extra assistance and the ones that up more than five hundred employees service kind of a control group. They tell you what would have happened if you didn't get this ski enough and so what you end up. Seeing the data is you can follow employment levels week by week and you can see very precisely that after april third that when when this program went into effect employment did start to go up a little bit at the smaller firms relative to the larger firms by about two percentage points. But the problem is it's only a two percentage point impact of fortune for every cost five hundred billion dollars so it it cost about three hundred thousand dollars per job that we saved as a result. Some of these are low wage. Jobs jobs that are paying about forty thousand dollars a year typically. So you know. You're spending an enormous amount of money to save these jobs now. I think people started to figure out over time that lots of firms might be taking up this program who weren't gonna lay off any workers anyway and as a result it wasn't super cost effective but we figured that out only several months afterward and so the kind of vision. We add some of this big data. Work that we're doing. And this is why i think it can be a moral force for social good as in agean. You could see as you're gonna steering the economy to three weeks later while this is kind of working but maybe we need to target it at firms that lost a lot of revenue or redesign it a bit so that it's more effective or in specific geographies like this area doesn't need any money. This area does exactly what specific sectors right. there are certain sectors particularly hard. You can take a really data driven approach and in private companies. This would be second nature right. I try to sell this product. I figure out within a couple of months people are clicking on this. They're not buying us. I'm going to then tweak it. In some way and i think we could do that from a social perspective for for policy with in my view much larger stakes.
Apple slashes App Store fees for most developers
"Apple is cutting its app. Store commissions in half for most developers next year lowering the commission for in-app subscriptions and other purchases from thirty percent. Down to fifteen percent. The company's been accused of using those fees to unfairly boost profits and stifle competitors to apple's own using video and other subscription services. The new discount will not apply to developers with more than a million dollars. Annual app store revenue. Which means some of the most popular apps on apple devices will still have to pay a higher commission and lisa brady fox news
What the Latest Retail-Sales Figures Could Mean for the Holiday Season
"Us retail sales rose for a sixth straight month and october but the pace of growth was slower than expected and that suggests that us shoppers or getting more cautious corona virus cases surge. Joining me now with more details is wall street journal economics reporter harriet tori. Hi harry at. Thanks for being here. So the past few months have shown stronger growth in retail sales but october showed less than expected increase. What happened so what we saw. Were steep declines in retail sales in march and april due to the pandemic and then a big pickup in may retail. Sales are up over eighteen percent since then. The group has tapered off but it really did taper off quite a lot compared to the prior month so we saw a month a month increase of north point three percent whereas in september it was one point six percent so it's really slowed pretty considerably and this was also slower than economists expecting. They had pencilled in a zero point. Five percent increase so it did disappoint relative to expectations. What are they attributing the slowdown to certain key. Categories of spending She posted declines last month. So for instance. One of the big ones was grocery stores now. The decline is relatively small. Sales were down zero point. Four percent but still grocery shopping is a big cass. Agree so there was that there was also a drop in clothing sales sporting goods sales and at general merchandise stores so for instance department stores and then a few categories did well contributing to their rogaine so vehicle sales a continuing to perform pretty strongly. They were up electronic sales. Were up and also of course. Non store retailers which are online merchants. Like amazon and october was a pretty good month for them in part because retailers have been pushing promotions to try and get. The holiday season started earlier this year. So we saw that. For instance amazon prime day this year. It was in october rather than july and a few other retailers had other promotional events going on kind of to match that also retailers have just been exploding over the pasta up. Nearly thirty percents from october. Twenty thousand thousand nine. So online spending has really boomed as you mentioned this year. A lot of retailers did roll out the holiday discounts and sales much earlier than usual. Is that a shift. That's working out for them. So far is it a bit too early to tell. It's a bit at least it's hell. I think what's interesting about the situation. That brennan the moment is we have seen of course and they. At the end of the summer we saw the end to the supplemental unemployment benefits. So this extra six hundred dollars a week. That unemployed work had been receiving on the labor market has been improving but the gains in. The labor. Market have been slowing. So what does that mean that. Means that people have generally less income than they did a few months ago so just spending is become a little bit more cautious for big part of the population. These people who are either unemployed or who might have had the hours carpool worried about losing their jobs. Now on the other hand you have another group of people who are able to work from home and can have things delivered to their homes and because they're not traveling then already going out as much dinner than going to the movies means really saving a lot of money The using it to pay down debt and to home improvement projects and things like that and so these consumers are expected to actually spend quite a lot during the holiday season. They might not be spending on vacations but they probably will be spending on nice electronics for their families gifts. Or perhaps they'll be decorating the house improving the house in some way so it's quite early to say but one thing that we're definitely seeing. Is this divide. They call it the qe shaped recovery. So you have. The upper arm of the k. Is generally knowledge workers who can shelter in place. What from home and then on the bottom half of the cave. People who are really struggling with declining in service sector employment as we head into the colder months what are some shifts businesses especially restaurants or considering to help drive sales through the end of the year. We'll it's tough restaurants in you know the northern hemisphere because the cold weather is closing in. So they're having to become pretty creative and then the other thing that we're seeing of course is the fact that a lot of places now introducing new shutdown measures local level so some restaurants are doing things like that trying to push outdoor dining in space heaters and things like that and of course really pushing the curbside pickup and delivery options but it is definitely a very difficult time for those types of businesses. The service sector in person is really really struggling on the other hand you see a lot of businesses that already doing very well in the pandemic so for instance. Today we had the home depots earnings. And that's a company that has seen sales and earnings increase markedly because people are just staying at home. And they're spending money on improving their homes and on doing the painting the garage door and things like that so there are definitely winners and losers in this particular
Amazon opens online pharmacy that delivers prescriptions
"Big news. This morning including amazon launching an online pharmacy in the united states services called amazon pharmacy and it went live this morning. Amazon prime members will receive discounts and get free two day shipping. This news means of course to increase competition for drug retailers like walgreens. Cvs and walmart in all three of those stocks have been under pressure in fact. Check this out when the news. I hit this morning. Each of those stocks were down by two to three percent but right now while greens boots down by ten percent. Cvs health down by six percent and rite aid down by almost ten percent as well walmart shares up by about seven tenths of a percent probably less of a competitor for walmart. Then these other threes. But guys i was thinking about it and thinking about what i will do. I'm a very heavy amazon. Prime user ship everything. But i don't think i'm going to leave either. Cvs or my local. I i keep both of those right now for two very specific reasons. Cvs i make sure. We have prescriptions there. So that when. I'm traveling if something happens that we need prescription in a pinch go to cvs. It's going to be anywhere in the country and get that prescription filled immediately or my local apothecary. I i love them. Because i know them. They're very friendly. They'll do things like mix up things that you can't get fined and cbs. Some of the other big chains or they'll also deliver things same day immediately. Great people and i have relationships with both of those for those reasons. I can't see myself. Switching any of our prescriptions amazon prime. At least right now. Well no and i could see. There's going to be obviously a core customer for for all these folks. But i do think amazon can skim away that kind of monthly prescription for somebody that gets every time gets into the mail anyway and therefore there's just that added little piece of at the other part in terms of the stock reaction is walgreens and cvs up thirty percent stocks this month so there was this massive move in those names because they were considered to be perhaps beneficiaries of the distribution of the covid vaccine there in all the value indexes though stocks are getting bought pretty heavily right now so it seems like perhaps they were just out a little bit on a limb when this news hit. And of course you've often seen these kind of knee-jerk reactions to anything amazon. Does you know buying whole foods and kind of kills the supermarket stocks for a little while. That didn't necessarily laugh so a lot of a lot of things going into this early. We action. I guess
Can I Prune the Top Out of My Indoor Hibiscus Which Is Getting Too Tall?
"He has a question about high biscuits. He says mine has been inside for two years but now it's too tall for the living room. Can i cut some off the top. Well mark the answer is definitely yes now I'm going to make a it was mark. Basically what just happened to my trees down. His best is obviously a tropical. And and it's apparently doing quite well and yes he can print now as crewing goes It will depend on the looks and condition to the plan. But i would remove any cross branches and things are right up against the trunk or staff i would then think going out even on each branch tip to about nobel no more than one third of the way from the tip back toward the trump and he could trim every branch tip on that plant He can because of obvious need he can take well. I have to guess at its height. But i'm gonna say he can take between twelve and eighteen inches the top so that it's more room size and then He would want to taper the plant. So it's just not at that point. He'd want to trim off more than one third of the tips of the branches as we get closer to that top so that it it will be If we will Think in terms of a bullet about very very strong copper jacket. Bullet is very very precise and thin and tall. My his plan is gonna because he's so he's going to be using something like the old musket forty five caliber ball where it'll be more rounded in there in terms of time I know of a few plants where this has been done. Oh my over the years. I don't know how any got to be but there there is proving that can be done it and be done now or if his plant does tend to defoliate In the middle of the winter at that point would be good time to do this the trimming back and so on so yes it can be bad I would try to be as cautious as possible. Try to as we really recommend on all plants outdoors oriented doors. Try not to remove more than twenty five or maximum thirty percent of the plant at one time so a good percentage of being in that top where he's got a short and down then the tip trimming and sending and so on By all means go for
The H-1B visa program is about to get another reboot
"Incoming biden administration promises a more open approach to immigration including the h. one b. visa program for highly skilled foreign workers employed by us companies. The trump administration has moved to restrict foreign work visas this summer and executive order temporarily halted new h one b visas and last month the labor department announced new rules making them more difficult to qualify for this matters to tech of course because the industry employs a huge portion of h. one b. visa holders in jobs companies say. There aren't enough skilled. American workers to fill britta glennon as an assistant professor at the university of pennsylvania's wharton school of business denial rates for new h. b. petitions under the trump administration rose from six percent prior to trump coming into office to thirty percent of any policy changed. That's internal memos that have basically increased the number of requests for evidence slowing processing just generally making it more difficult to get approval. So that's something that that biden can change. What could a more friendly administration in terms of foreign work visas mean for american workers who you know many of whom supported president trump and might be concerned about their jobs. Actually there's very little evidence showing that that immigrants take american jobs in fact there's more evidence showing that skilled immigrants create american shops. And so you know. I think i would say they shouldn't be worried about this. They're not taking their jobs. And in fact the response to reducing immigrants is not giving americans job sexually just taking those jobs to another country
Calen Morelli on How to Perfect a Magic Effect
"Talk about thirty percent but people need at all that you like to add so as a kid he's seventeen. He's bought quantum right. He's seen me saying that at colonia brilliant and he gets the props we to talk about the methods. But like you've already worked for however long it was until you release the product nuanced. Tweet take on that. So how does this kid okay. So i started to do this Physically and now. I just do all of my I'll tell you what they could do physically. But now i do everything mentally. I have mental maps. That i can since i've been in magic for so long i i can mentally map out and shut my eyes. Imagine myself performing new things almost like you'd see like photoshop like i i can so anyways. That's that's like a skill that i've used just to practice new methods in my head but without that skill i would say like with quantum i would get if i liked in effect like that and create it. I would sit. And i would do the effect over and over and over like for maybe a day straight without not a goal to perform it but i would just focus on everything i would find the flaws in it because like quantum does have flies like it's just it's just like any other trick but i would focus on like understanding what i liked about it and i would begin to just do it for myself over and over until i can really articulate what i love about it and what i don't like about it and what i would do different. I would focus on understanding at through repetition auto mechanics of the method. How everything moves. Why maybe the creator made choices to you. Know like do certain things. And i would just build tastes and opinions through repetition of doing something over and over like so. It's my goal of. If i still by magic. But i don't buy it to perform i i it to analyze and to see how it feels in my hands so then i can later. Use those methods for my mental for my mental creations. So if if i never use the hover card by dan. Harlan and nick lawrence That's okay great method. But when i've mapped out how it feels on my hands then later on when i'm creating methods that might be similar. I know exactly where to go with it. Why simplicity and efficiency important to you. And how do you go about stripping an effect down to arrive at efficiency. So if you strip an effect down to the simplest form possible you realize the actual value that is being added that you're transferring from you as an artist to the viewer watching and you start to find gaps in unnecessary ways. That people perform magic because you start to realize that maybe with some effects. It doesn't matter if it's examine because it's not about that it's about communicating the visual art other effects. It's very important that it's examined because it's about the cleanliness of simple non visual change. Like you really have to like know what the goal is and a lot of people. Don't even know that. There's more than one goal with an effect. Because i i've seen a lot with the piano card change people ask like can i do this. Live and my thought immediately is will like. That's like as a logical as me to me to ask. Can i do atop change on video. Yes you could. But why would you want to write. Because why would you wanna take something. That's meant for a medium and put it into the wrong medium. And then furthermore why would you even begin to judge whether a top changes good or not whether or not it can be done on video and in life because in a live setting. The top change is mind blowing people and if if you judge atop chain by whether or not it can be done on video. It's gonna it's like it's like that old adage albert einstein is like if you judge a fishes ability to climb a tree it's worthless or something like that show. We're we're judging by wrong standards.

Microsoft keeps head down while other tech companies come under fire
"Of the most interesting things when you. When you look at the quarterly reports, the ten cues in the annual report ten ks the one of the things you know always skim through the results because. They're the numbers matter and everything. That's what everyone's going to be writing about tonight and tomorrow. But the thing that I always zero in on is the section called risk. Factors. And then when you look at the risk factors section, then the thing that you do is you compare the wording in the risk factors section for this quarter to last quarter and a quarter before that and and boy oh boy, you can find some really good stories when you see that all of a sudden showed up as a risk factor that had to be disclosed this is this is the kind of stuff that that they're putting they're putting that in. There because they see this as possibly something that's going to happen. Right? You know six months from now or two or three years from now. But when when the bad news happens they're they're they're basically inoculating themselves against shareholder lawsuits by disclosing it in the risk factors. So that's from a from pure lay persons or journalist as opposed to analysts point of view. That's the place to go and read I as you get get all the juicy dirt. of course. Sorry before before we. Miss this point you talked about Ed about. What Google the breakout cloud business on their fact sheet but they may never do that because wasn't it last year they said that they're going to give it a couple more years, and if it doesn't work out, they might diverse divest and like. Google way. There's possibility. They're not breaking out right because they might get rid of it and They don't want it to show up in the book. That's there's a certain discipline that Google CFO ruth poor at his imposed over the last few years that that wasn't there. Maybe in the early days of Larry and Sergei where she she's pretty quick. If something is not going to turn a profit she's pretty quick to say, okay, boys it's bye bye and There has been a little bit of a detriment to Google because I think there's also the impression that Google doesn't stick with anything. You know well, that that same thing you know what poor it's been doing with the various other bats I think is actually behind something that happened with waymo earlier this year for the first time back in February of this year, Waymo took outside investment from outside of alphabet up until now, it's the self-driving project at Google has always been internally funded by alphabet and Google and this year they took three billion dollars in outside investment for the first time and you know it wasn't talked about very much. You know other than saying Oh. Yeah I've got all this. Is all excited about you know Google raising this extra money. You know why? Why are they suddenly taking money from other investors and I? Think it's because poor at looked at, you know the the prospects for automated vehicles becoming a real business and decided to you know it's probably going to happen but it's GonNa, take a lot longer than everybody was thinking. Two three or four years ago, and she probably told Waymo look if you WanNa keep this going, you're going to have to find some funding elsewhere and that's why they went to Silverlake and Magnano few other investors and raise this extra money to give them extra runway until they can actually scale a business out of that in three four five years time You know. So you know poor at probably told you can keep it going. We're we're not gonNA shut you down but you're going to have to find funding somewhere else and it's not just more money. It's also reducing their exposure the. The bet fails only owned two thirds of it. That's better than if they own one hundred percent of it. So at data away with Google, calls them as other bets. Historically Google's noth- nothing but lose money on other bats. They make enough money in search and advertising that they can fun dollars stuff but they've yet to find the magic bullet that's going to give them a new business. They really haven't even android I don't think is a huge benefit to them. Only, to the extent that it that it props up search search business or. Yeah. Yes. Search and advertising sixty or seventy percent of of mobile traffic worldwide that my you know my question on the for Sam on taking the external investment in something like Waymo is that it also? Lessons that the the the likelihood that if they have a home run if they if this becomes the business, you know one of the businesses that can help sustain them when you know if search advertising gets into trouble, but all of a sudden, you've allowed a whole bunch of outside investing in their year now, sharing the profits with other people and a lot of that ameliorating effect that you're hoping for. Doesn't approve you, right? Yeah. You reduce the risk, but you also reduce the upside when you bring in other partners and I mean, that's that's true of any startup business, the more investors you bring in. The founders are ultimately going to get less of the the the windfall if there is one. aright. So say ED having looked at the risks and the rewards of the Microsoft. Balance Sheet. It was pretty good quarter, right? It absolutely. Was Yeah and. The thing to me that's amazing is they have in terms of risk they have managed to keep their head down. While every one of their competitors is just taking fire left and right and there you know I didn't see. Sacha. In you know. In those in any of those hearings this past week. So you know it's it's This is a company that is they are really humming along with a boring. But? Profitable. Business. INCOME UP THIRTY PERCENT YEAR OVER YEAR Thirteen, point nine, billion for the quarter not bad not shabby although on par with every other these companies we're talking about all the all the other big. Tech giant's behemoths little sidebar here. These investigations by whether it was the house antitrust subcommittee that issued a very long scathing report that did include. Did it not Microsoft? Maybe not maybe they feel like Microsoft's been spanked already. So they don't need to be spanked again the Department of Justice investigation into Google, a number of investigations in the EU but the US investigations. especially. This past week's testimony. Really. About section to thirty cm tainted by politics to some degree and I have to wonder if there really is any real risk. To these companies anymore than. The president's executive order against TIKTOK has harmed Tiktok in any way if anything, it's probably just increased downloads. The politics seem to hinder the ability to kind of. Agree on what to do. You. Agree. Ed. Oh God. Only, the the whole the whole you know, the the section to thirty hearings that weren't they were just they were just grandstanding no political grandstanding it was it was political grandstanding it was you know and and and the real thing is when you look at. A hearing that is legitimate is going to have legislation that comes out of it. Right I failed to see how any legislation could come out of this that would that would get past senses. There's no concern about what to do on on anything no and and all of the possibilities no matter which direction you go make things worse not better for everyone I mean, it's it is the classic lose lose proposition. So this was just an opportunity for primarily this was. The Senate you know. So it's run by the It's run by Republicans and it was an opportunity for Republican senators to yell at social media companies and create sound clips right for their round by taking us for the running ads or to share with their chair with their constituents tough on twitter. Let me tell you. It also diminishes the power that it would be in the past like, Oh, I got called in front of Congress, I don't want to happen. When it happens every other week, you could there is a note about how calm all the the CEOS were like when they were being questioned even though they're being screamed and yelled at, it's because they're like so this isn't going to do anything no one cares and nothing's going to come of it. So it's unfortunate that the power of Congress or the power of the Senate. Is having diminished effect because of this theater in an era where facts are don't hold the same weight. So it's the IT. Even, both sides Republican and the Democrat size they're talking as if they didn't really understand what the law was governing the these companies or how their place in it could affect the future of the Internet.

Tell me what other things you want to embrace. What else you need to do we've invested significantly? If you look at the company, we're really technology experience platform with human Centric community overlay, and that's really been very important. And I think the brands of the future are going to take. Technology, plus meaning and help people live more fulfilled lives, and that's what we're trying to do. And we're trying to give people more and more value for that. We've built is significant data, and they I group and so the more we can personalise, right. What we do and how we can support the more valuable. We will become and that technology and those capabilities and that digital community are very much. Why our retention is at an all time high are subscriber base last quarter. We had a million year on year. And so people are really seeing the value. What we can provide them over a longer term. It's a journey. It's not a beginning middle and end, particularly in health that million subscribers growth year over year. So what percentage that roughly about thirty percent? Thirty percent. Can you continue that you know, we believe that the more we can recruit by getting people to understand how meaningful we can be in their lives. Retention is very important as well. Right. And our ability for people to continue to have success on the program. And what we're also seeing in terms of that retention is not only are people inspired. But they want to inspire other people to lead healthier lives. Do you? And I talked to the end of last year. I mean, this whole idea of like embracing someone's lifestyle, and I think it's really important. I think that's what people need, and you, and I discussed that our biggest competition is people thinking they can get healthy themselves, and they need a partner, and we want to be that partner. And if you think about wellness overall, it really is what you put in your body. How you move your body, and how your mind supports your efforts? And if we can build an ecosystem for people that is sustainable throughout their healthy journey. That's what we want to be. There's no beginning middle and to healthy. All right. So we're Bloomberg.

After the New Year's resolution. Do they stay with you? So we're moving to this wellness three sixty five, and that's what we want to do in terms of our marketing, but they're just is natural seasonality. And as I said before retention is now in about the high nine months, what we're trying to do is create as much value as possible for people so ex time from now, I could be talking about retention in years, not months, but that's why we're trying to provide so many tools for people to out the journey.
