Caffeinated drinks sugary like super aggressive label labels on them. and it's like this sort of like very like macho. Frankly bro beverage and the stock has done phenomenally well but depending on exactly what Settings you use. it's it might be the single best performing stock in history or certainly over the last twenty or so years.

Although i am very aware of the branding and advertising strategy has been a big part of their success. And i'm sure we're going to get into that on the podcast. But i have to say in the course of doing some research for this episode. I found the most amazing anecdote on read it. Of course it came from read. It changes that perfect. What what what the anecdote. So i think it was on the financial independence retirement early board but it was some guy who said he invested ninety thousand dollars in monster energy drinks I think this was in two thousand ten. He posted and he said he'd invested five years ago so basically he had a five hundred percent increase on that ninety thousand dollar position which made him a millionaire in the space of five years and the best part of it was he wrote that in two thousand ten everyone on the message board basically said you are absolutely crazy. I can't believe you have this huge chunk. Appoint foley of your portfolio in a single stock. You need to sell it right now. And of course had he held onto it at. I don't even know what it would be worse now but like the big spike in monster energy came after two thousand ten so you can only imagine what ninety k.

"The state of play on game. Stop the biggest of the big. Red it hype. Stocks slid more than thirty percent in. Monday's trade is a further fall to come game. Stop has had a wild ride recently. After exuberant retail traders sparked a short squeeze in the stock. That meant that the professional traders who had against the mall retailer were forced to buy it to limit their losses pushing the price even higher. At this point you've been watching this guy's got a one thirty eight dead so down thirty percent yesterday to to to to twenty five and now down from two twenty five forgot it at one forty i gotta i gotta one thirty eight bed right now. So thirty percent yesterday. Thirty seven percent today. I don't know what to say about that other than we said all along when when the shorts get covered. What's it worth. What's it worth when the shorts get covered. It did anyone. Ask that question Well we did. Obviously but yeah. I don't know what the the company is. I don't know what the company is actually worth. And i love the i love when people say you know maybe the guys got some some great plans who knows. Maybe maybe they do. Maybe there's some online business model that works for brick and mortar right. I mean that's that that that i guess you could. You could somehow justify you know a two thousand percent run up. But i know what do you think is this. Just go back up to five hundred at this point or is the fever. Broken at this point look i. I wouldn't proclaim to know what's going to happen with different investors who try to get in and run with this. We knew from the beginning that you may double a stock and that looks outrageous enough but when you're trading at twenty times what you were a couple of weeks ago there's something besides fundamentals that are at play there so it'd be almost impossible to say because it hasn't been a fundamental Move that's been driving this for quite a while. Hollywood's weird isn't it. There's a couple of movie versions in the works already. they have. I hear it when they make a movie. They made three different endings. They have no idea. Well what the ending of this is going to be on on the ben. Mezrak is doing one of the social network before this one's the antisocial network eilly anti-secession well i'd like to.

Robinhood CEO speaks out after GameStop stock chaos
"Robin hoods roller coaster ride and a new interview from the company's ceo. Trying to slow things down. The popular free brokerage app has experienced unprecedented high volume of trading as well read it reading retail traders pile into a few highly. Shorted stocks in a move organized. In part on the irreverent wall street bet sub reddit. The volume was so overwhelming and companies. You've been hearing about maybe again after a few years game stop. Amc blackberry and nokia but robin hood suspended trading in those stocks on thursday. Wow the reaction to this move was swift and surprising both congresswoman out of cossio. Cortez and senator. Ted cruz found themselves on the same side of an issue. Both tweeting that robin hoods moves were unacceptable and at the expense of the little guy investor over the hedge funds feeling the squeeze when stocks they shorted suddenly shot up a thousand percent in the legend. Robin hood stole from the rich to give to the poor so this was a confusing metaphor yesterday for everybody. Robin hood said it was a risk management decision to protect investors the markets and the firm. The company has to deposit money to a clearinghouse based on the volume of trades. And they feared they'd be unable to meet the anticipating deposit requirements now. The company's ceo joined our andrew. Ross sorkin of squawk box just earlier this week on the power of retail investors. It is a huge time for retail investors. Check your feed for that conversation and then take a listen to this one done just two days later. When the company was dealing with the anger of the robin hoodies they're typically younger users and trying to raise money through credit lines to ensure it had enough capital to resume trading on these volatile stocks. Here's andrew flat. Ten of is with us right now and we appreciate you joining us on a day where there are so many questions there are frankly as you know a lot of angry customers out there and a lot of questions about what took place in the decisions that you made to limit so many your customers ability to buy stocks like game. Stop questions about whether you have a liquidity problem. Whether you're trying to protect them from themselves whether citadel did this explain what happened today. Thank you for having me on the show again andrew. So what happened. Today was as you pointed out. We had to make a very difficult decision. It's been a it's been a challenging day. We made the decision in the morning to limit the buying of about thirteen securities on our platform so to be clear customers could still sell those securities if they had positions in them and they could also trade in the thousands of other security is on our platform so it was a difficult decision. And that's what we had to do as part of normal operations but explain. Why did you do this. What did the call you and tell you you had to do this. Was there a problem inside. The company in terms of liquidity in terms of the demand deposits. The you had to put it in front to the exchanges. What led to this sure and let me let me explain exactly how this works. First of all i want to address some of the misinformation. That's been out there. There's a lot of a. We absolutely did not do this. At the direction of a market maker or hedge fund or anyone we row to or other market participants. The reason we did it was because Robin a brokerage firm. We have lots of financial requirements including sec net capital requirements and clearinghouse deposits. So that's money that we have to deposit burying clearing-houses so some of these requirements fluctuate bid based on volatility in the markets and they can be substantial in the current environment where there's a lot of volatility and a lot of concentrated activity in In these names that have been going viral on social media so we're really in unprecedented times and in order to protect the firm in protect our customers. We had to limit by in these in these stocks in to be absolutely. It's ahead but it sounds to me though that you're suggesting that there was a liquidity problem inside the firm and my question about that then raises all sorts of new questions about whether there's a systemic issue underneath the system and underneath the company unto itself. No there was no liquidity problem and to be clear this was done preemptively so we did this. Proactively in thousands of whether securities remain tradable on the platform customers that held these positions. Were able to seldom in. We're doing what we can to allow a buying 'em to remove these restrictions in the morning but also You might have seen robin hood has been the number one app in the in the store overall so we have seen unprecedented interest due to the fact that finance has been culturally irrelevant in a way that hasn't been before and these stocks are going viral on social media. And i think it's really interesting to juxtapose against some of the other questions that we've been having a before this of course robin For everyday investors from the very beginning with stood for investors opening up access and giving them the ability to trade commission. Free in whatever they want a in. We've gotten a lot of criticism that you know. Maybe there should be more restrictions so it pains us to have had to these restrictions and we're gonna do what we can to enable trading test. How concerned should customers be though about the robustness of the system. If in fact what ultimately had to happen was you had to shut down. Access to buying these securities because of the deposit required. Well to be clear. This was the system working. We have the ability to restrict buying in symbols for a unprecedented market conditions. Such as this in to be clear we didn't shut down the system. We shut down by four of these thirteen stocks for the thirteen securities but customers that position could still sell and customers still could buy and sell the thousands of other securities on the robin hood platform. But when you look at the precipitous fall for example of game stop. Do you think that robinhood bears any responsibility for that. I can't comment on price. Action of of securities and probably would be inappropriate for me to do that in also. I should know rodman wasn't the only firm to restrain buying other. Brokerages have been restricting the buying and trading of these types of securities all week. And even today. Of course we get the lion's share of the attention since we've been the cognitive referring for retail investing in america but other other people are dealing with these challenges as well
The DMM Foundation: Putting Your Crypto to Work for You
"You just kind of remind us A little bit about the dm foundation. Sure so dm that sounds for defy money market And it's run by a foundation and basically it's pretty simple. What is trying to do is really just trying to solve the dual problems problems of one currency debasement and then the second is the possibility of earning interest and so we have a defy protocol basically that empowers anybody connected to the internet who has crypto to earn six point two five percent Stable correlated yield on their assets We do that through Basically a protocol you can interact with The compound that you convert your either. Us dc die either or use dt into. What's called 'em tokens. And then this earned six point two five percent. You can come in and out at anytime. You want one of the big differences. Where we're focused is is really. We know that in the crypt space time yield can be like a thousand percent and then it could be like point two percent right and so define money. Market is really focused on a stable interest rate. And the way we do that as we actually connect and interest is generated from real world assets that are all viewable on chain and this provides. It's very stable. Six point two five percent return and we use chainlink. Oracle's where all this information now is transparent into what's backing up the eco-system and the portfolios sentence producing this interest So it's governed by dow the dow. So oh it's full decentralized governance and we think that it's a new way that i think a lot of folks are interested in because again it kind of helps you solve the ability for debasement because all the all the assets actually buy real so we have an inflationary environment real senator. Pretty good the second thing is you can get the view into the underlying assets and you get the stable six point two five percent so it's been pretty well received by the market in that i think we fit in niche in the overall space grip space.
Hottest Stock On Wall Street: Struggling Video Game Store GameStop
"Hottest stock on wall street is a struggling video game store. You walk past in shopping malls game. Stop its share. Price has spiked over a thousand percent in recent days all because of amateur day traders who gather in a red forum. Mary childs is the co host of. Npr's planet money podcast and well talked with her. Hey mary hi. So i found myself up at ten o'clock at night texting with my kid brother about game stop stock and i realized i really need to know what is going on here. What's going on here so it starts in a place on the internet known as wall street. That's it's this forum on read it. We're all these day trader types. These non professionals get together and trade stock tips as well as memes and screengrabs of their trades and a ton of rocketship emojis. This places become really active since the start of the pandemic with people kind of trapped at home looking for something to do and back one of these reta traders started arguing for why everyone should buy game stop. This was a weird argument. This is an old mall brand with exposure to commercial real estate. It's not exactly natural by right now but that actually became part of the argument for why you should buy it because the argument against game stop made it a good stock to bet on because there was so much interest betting against it. All these big establish hedge funds were betting against it so that turned into this rallying. Cry that you know. We should take on big wall street and from there took off so the hedge funds are short selling it which is something that hedge funds do and then it takes a twist right yes. Basically these big hedge funds were betting that the shares would go down right. They were shorting it so to do that. They have to borrow the shares of the stock and sell it and if the price goes down then they can buy it back at. The lower price borrowed stock and pocket. That price difference but as price goes up. If they're wrong they have to go buy back that stock at new higher price and that leaves them vulnerable to if the price shoots up really fast then all of a sudden that's called a short squeeze and that's exactly what happened here. It kind of amplifies the effective and more so it makes sense. Inherently that big hedge funds might be able to move markets right. They have like billions of dollars but this is a case where small investors moved to the market. How did they manage to do that. Basically wall street bets has learned how to weaponize the tools that they're using so they're using options and functionally. You can buy options for way less money than you need to buy the actual stock so that means that you can take your pennies on the dollar and go play in the market. And the way that they're playing they found ways to lean on the banks that seldom the stocks to lean on these hedge funds in such a way that exploit the mechanics of options and that can amplify everything that doing and get the most bang for their buck. Mary what does this tell us about. How wall street works and who actually has power versus who. Maybe we assumed has power absolutely. This has all these kind of same stresses occupy wall street where people are saying these big hedge funds. Why should they get to control the stock market the systems rigged and this has been a weird way for people to forcibly. Take that back to up. End those structures and up that power dynamic so it's not clear to me where this ends up and certainly there are going to lose a lot more money than they necessarily have but at this moment it feels like popular opinion is a little bit more with wall street bets. Mary tiles is a co host of. Npr's planet. money podcast. Mary thanks so much thank you.

All The Things: A 2020 Debrief with Sean Miura
"Living cooney In in many ways that is the most that we can ask ourselves right. Now i was gonna say what qualifies as living now is simply a pulse because sure i got that notes a into bleak time but i think I'm leaving this year with capacity to be grateful for stuff. That's that's kind of something that i'm i'm happy about and i feel very privileged good. I'm very happy to hear that. That's an esa. Just sean way to start this off. isn't it also need. I'm still like writing this high of realizing that. This is the first time that you're on my first of all podcasts. 'cause i was like i've podcast with sean before. This is not the first but if the verse but this one. So i've done. I've been on collab- cast multiple times. I think the last time was when we recorded with david joy okay and then the recording. They didn't like that so that but it was fine. I think laden wanna had just come out and that was all we were talking about or something so it was kind of saying that in intro as well it was a whole thing it was a it was beautiful thing. That is so solicit. Start with that. That my memory is non-existent This i mean the whole purpose of this conversation. Is i just wanna talk with you. But it's really we're at the very very end of twenty twenty which will go down in infamies. Two days left two days left as probably gonna go up the last day. So we're just like you know settling and coming to terms with all that was this year. So yeah we're just if anyway i mean i said this in the intro. We good but just or eight. We're debriefing. I calling this. Like a twenty twenty debrief a good a good debrief. Yeah thank thank you for having me. This is actually the. I've i've said no to pretty much every like podcast or video or or writing. Ask that. I've had This year really. Yeah just because i had. I didn't it was it was like either at. It didn't feel like i was the right person to talk about the subject. Or i just wasn't really feeling like i. I wanted to be putting anything. That i was saying at the time on tape because my brain was all over the place but I'm i'm happy to be here just to to look back because i think that that's that's an important thing for everyone to be doing right now. I'm slow. I am just so beyond honor. Now this is so meaningful that it's the first time you're on first of all and also that it's a rarity because i one hundred thousand percent support that i think i did ask you earlier this year and you did say no. I really admired and respected you for that. I think that an imprint. On my heart of like i need to be more on i. Yeah i mean. It's i think you're asking me to talk about the The uprisings after the murder. Of george. Floyd and taylor and And the The central park on incident. And i think that for for for many from for many of us who were applying. That was an interesting moment because that sort of like amplifying and supporting movement work has been is just kind of part of what we do and then in that moment. Suddenly i found myself being pegged as like a like a weird spokesperson. For that. i wasn't. I wasn't a leader. Hin or was an expert in nor nor should i really be the person to go to and i think that i i think for many of us. Were just trying to figure out who who who could have. The conversation. And i got asked quite a few times actually In the weeks following that to not surprised podcasts. Or or Write a thing or do a photo shoot or et cetera et cetera. Simply off the fact that i was reposting things on on instagram stories and I think what. I what what i've taken away from. That is just this reminder that you know we we need to be more clear on who within our community is doing this work and who were in the scene to and who were uplifting and And so and so in that moment would it's some. This is something that i've always tried to practice I thought it was really important. Just to pass the mic. Which i did a few times and referred people to other folks but Yeah i mean i. I'm i'm glad that was. That was a good thing. I'm always a little a little bit unsure. When i say no to stuff but yeah trying to try and do more of that.
Tencent Buys Warframe
"The first here is from the motley fool and the headline tencent makes another billion dollar gaming acquisition. The chinese technology and media conglomerate has been on an acquisition spree in the gaming space making its leadership position even stronger What they bought here was Lay you lay you technologies. Which is the parent company of digital extremes And it's a canadian. Based video game studio known for war frame they also own studios including athlon and splash damage. Ten sense going to be paying roughly one and a half billion in cash Choir the company which is incredible The buying spree that they've been on the amount of cash that they've put out there the second acquisition this one I think we talked about it on a previous podcast And it was a agrees to a us. One point two billion dollar deal for f one video game developer code masters. I think when we talked about it we were talking about it in the context of take two interactive having made an offer and ea sort of just trump them. The came came up with an offer for about two hundred or two hundred and fifty million dollars more so they were willing to pay a higher Share price 'cause code masters is publicly traded. And so it looks like ea is going to end up acquiring code masters having outbid take two interactive. Which i think at the time when we talked about it we felt that was a big price. Tag billion dollars for code masters and now the looks like the trading price is going to be one point. Two billion so curious to get your guys thought You know we can talk about them individually or we can talk about sort of which one we think is the better acquisition Neil i don't know if you know the war frame guys. I know it is canadian based a candidate based But curious to get your thoughts on these two. My i take is. I know you guys are fans of this gentleman. But jeff bezos when you look at code masters being bought yeah code about being bought for one point two billion. Let's just taking kids that are issued. How amazing that twitch nine hundred seventy six years ago right on decide to eight point. Nine children should win. Ea i think is in such a good spot and we might say openly. Here that one would you billionaires demo overpaying if you look at the stock run that they've been onto it's a currency unto itself and there probably sixty seventy percent on the year and adding more aaa titles to their. Snow is all the better. I think they've just done a tremendous job in and similar racing at f. One especially with what we saw as a result of that netflix series drug survive and get him is f. One is making a huge comeback younger audiences and people that have now seen this through netflix. And then people that are you know. Middle aged or know mid thirties to my age is. We're all obsessed and we're following it every week and it's quite dramatic as i didn't care about f. one at all in the last couple of years. But i'll admit. I've i've in the playstation store i've bought the f. one game it's not that great in my opinion maybe not that good at driving it but i think the acquisition is worth the risk. You want to be known as as a world class when it comes to fee for Nhl sim racing. They've got such great titles along the way and you know the team over there in teams doing it competitive gaming entertainment now. They're just making the right most. I don't know much about this. Said deal admittedly But anything tencent touches It's a powerful move and they're building empire that we should be very very afraid of. I mean both seem like really good acquisitions from synergies perspective right because ea has all the sports titles so f one feels like a perfect fit and and ten cents graded monetization right. Probably better than anyone and wore. Frame really is one of these free to play like monetize. Every which way up the wazoo kind of games like it's in the ten cent portfolio both of these acquisitions. I have to tell you like in a vacuum. I thought they were already owned by the people. Buying them like no joke. Like i literally thought were frame was somehow i was like. That's just the sort of thing they buy and the same for ea. Like i literally thought. Like i played grid quite a lot in my memory. Brid was an ea game like it was published by ears. I don't know. But like i just that tells you how lake like well on portfolio on message these acquisitions. Our prices are high. But as neil said like the market tie and then took to other point as well you know putting in context of bazo acquisition. Like doesn't matter where you put money and put it games like i think anything that was bought for a billion dollars a couple years ago smart because there were a couple wasn't just twitch we had minecraft myra look in a world where roadblocks goes public at thirty billion or forty billion market cap like buying minecraft at four or five or whatever they paid right seems like house. Yeah just like microsoft like so like the bottom line is but guises whiting. Listen to this podcast. It's so important. It's just like this is not the exception. This is the norm putting money in games today will turn into more money later. More likely than not investment advice aside. I'm not a credit above because the industry is just so positioned. It's the future of so much entertainment media and everything so like the reason. We're observing these crazy exits and outcomes is because the space is a whole is growing so much right so lake. Get into the space. That's the bottom line william. I'm with you on that. A hundred thousand percent. And i think the interesting thing is re that are in the industry. we talk with these things very openly. We discuss them. But from an outside portfolio manager at a morgan stanley wherever they probably are afraid
Men’s Nail Polish Is Taking Off—Why Now?
"Is men's nail polish taking off the wall street journal just posted an article This past week and they've predicted that men's nail polishes taking off. And why now really. I've tried nail polish once. But i never. I've never thought to myself saying. Oh i you know. I i really need to put a nail polish. Yeah well they say. The trend is trickling down from celebrities. That are wearing nail polish. Of course men wearing nail polish is not new In the seventies many rockstars Wearing yale polish. As well. And i just you know i'm a little well. I'm not skeptical. I'm sure more and more men are wearing l. polish. I'm sure but i actually used to work for a men's makeup brand and we launched nail polish for men. Beautiful colors and people did wear them. People did buy them but sure to very very very small niche market. And i think no matter what's happening to sales. I think it's a little strong to say. Men's nail polish is taking off. Well i did a little. I did do a bit of a snarky comment on twitter about this. Said you know if they they. They sell a hundred bottles this year. They're going to improve it by thousand percent or something i'm sure they sell more than that And it has plenty of men who are going to like nail polish. I just don't personally think like it's it's really going to like. It's there's never going to be a time when men wear nail polishes much as women. No and i think. That's where i i feel like the articles. A little misleading. This isn't actually the first time. I've seen immense nail polish article are quite a bit a few of them and yes i think. Younger people are more open to wearing the l. polish for sure but when you look at the whole scope of the nail industry and how much revenue is generated from it male. Specific nail polishes still going to be a very small very small fraction of that. Yeah well it's very interesting. I you know. I just always see these articles about the men's cosmetics taking off and i've been seeing those the same articles since ninety five and you just never never seems to live up to the heights in the articles. Maybe i live long enough where that changes but boy i still don't i still don't see it. I suppose i just imagined. Most men have the same sort of Lasi faire attitude about cosmetics. As i have. And that's probably completely mistaken. Yeah it'll be interesting to see what market share actually gets taken from this trend will say i mean. I can't even myself to put on shaving cream. To shave. Just saw your. You won't be the polish consumer. I thank god. I mean mr cosmetic chemists certainly won't be but you know i don't even see my nephews wear so we'll see. Maybe maybe we're wrong. We've been wrong before. Not offense sometimes certainly about trends. Would you read this week. I stumbled on this article. Which is a review it was. It was published a survey published about ten years ago but it does not a subject that i'm interested in It's an old survey of toxicologists. Okay so just about ten years ago this survey of toxicologist who were members of the society of toxicology. I was just very surprised to learn that in this study of it was over. Like nine hundred toxicologists. Ten percent of the toxicologist said that they believe. Organic or natural products are inherently safer. I've never met a toxicologist that has not that. That's incredible i mean. Ten percent is pretty low. I mean so nine. Out of ten toxicologist say no. That's not true but there's really. There's that one toxic one out of ten toxicologists high. I i know exactly but you know it was even more was even more amazing to me. There was also a whopping twenty six percent who said they believed. Cosmetics pose a significant health risk.

Immediately thinking what is it the algae wing and this is the wing. Yeah. I know looking at the pictures it looks weird and. But I'll. Great Job Oh man what do you think of that thing? A thing is wild I haven't seen it in person yet. I have so many questions in terms of how it is to actually use on a day-to-day basis just flipping opening closed is incredibly nice. It's also way thinner and lighter than you would expect from something with two screens in weird flipping hinge like this I think is the most out bird design we've seen so far. Yeah. By folding phones we get it makes sense but flipping twisty whatever yeah I know it's crazy so. We are starting to see experience because I don't want to smartphones have plateaued kind of plateaued in terms of just features an youth new things that will. Come to them. So now this experiment of adding extra screens or expanding screens, it's a, it's really taking over the other thing that was different in that area and we check with the next five is Google had this strategy where they didn't make the phones themselves. They went to like different manufacturers over here and make us a phone and they did it so that they could just make a new version of android and like show off with how Or could work whatever. But now we have this pixel strategy. How do you think that's going? I know it's it was interesting because back in the day who they have within the next five LG was G. I I remember every time a pixel came out a next came out I. I was always waiting for my favorite manufacturer to get the nod. HTC. Come back on the next us. I think I like that. has taken over I think it means that there's More control and what we're not seeing a second vice somewhere out there that looks exactly like but with different software. Yeah I don't know if people remember this the next this was always basically based on another phone that the company already made and so you knew that this was just like the Google version of whatever the other was it like the g three for the next five I, can't remember and remember. As possible ninety five G. Three. Yeah. What did he call those versions of Android I? Mean those phones always had just like a stock version of android Google play edition yes. The play this and. Came like right around that time, and so you could get the stock version a back back in the day we we thought of it as a stock version. It was technically still like it was the Google version it wasn't pure stock Android, but you could get something without touch was on it because. Touch was was sway too much back then. It was so much stuff that was like the my least favorite out say then having that option was so cool. But Digress. I do like that Google has taken it on themselves. Have they made the best choices in terms of like design, all that MOS. Absolute each person to decide but I still like it being in house you know I feel like it's it gives them more control. They choose to exercise. You know really listening to feedback in implementing that you know but I do like the strategy I feel like we've seen. Microsoft. Really good job with that with their hardware on the surface the laptop stuff. Laptops. Just seeing them. All right. We're GONNA take this in-house start making our own things and you know we've seen pretty good success. Yeah for them. So I like the idea as a matter of like execute. Well so I'd like I agree with you I like the because. Google gets to make what a definitely wants to make. Right. It's not. This, year the next. This is not so good because it. You know they they based on the wrong phone this year, right? The next six was hallway phone had all sorts of bugs. What Google makes Google's responsible for right. There's nobody else to blame, but it also means that there's nobody else to blame, right? Yeah. I love Google don't get me wrong best al I love the Pixel devices but one thing I feel like we see manufacturers kind of learn and change things up a bit. I feel like the pixels learning curve has been. Not, the BASS. Just just from the hardware perspective is just. Having been wowed by hardware in a while right. So this is my take on it as they're really conservative right now. So actually the pixel five is a perfect example of this. They went back to fingerprint sensor, but everybody else Samsung has been doing screen figure fingerprint one plus has been doing in screen fingerprint sensors. It's like it's a whole thing. Google didn't. So part of it is cost savings but part of it their explanation for. Well, the one on the back is a thousand percent reliable and it's faster and they're not wrong like I do still have a little bit of a lag sometimes even on like a super fast hot Samsung phone hitting that fingerprint sensor under the screen, but it's not exciting. Is the TIKTOK they're exactly I honestly, I'm not with you mentioning that I'm I remember liking having a fingerprint sensor in the back and it's just so how how our opinions can change over time because the way the market goes, but I really enjoyed having a fingerprint sensor the because you could just pick up your phone and the second you pick it up you're. Thinking directly go onto the sensor and your phone is unlocked pretty quick and easy experience honestly. Also weird season ticket step back. So with the next five, they came into that thrifty price point done it with the Pixel for the the next four and so it was they were a little bit cheaper everybody. Also, all phones were cheaper. But they were they were cheaper than everybody else. There wasn't a lot of competition at that price point at that quality. So the next five, one of the reasons I loved it is it was cheap and everybody else but equality. But now with the Pixel Five, there's a lot more competition this year right then they had with xs five there's the there's one plus eight out there. That's relatively cheap April can sometimes be that same price, the Samsung Twenty, F, e. Got The faster processor Scott like three cameras on it. There's an iphone eleven that's the same price and the iphone twelve is going to be who knows probably around that same price. What do you think the landscape that they're putting this mid range Pixel five in? Its competitive. It's competitive right now and feel like they went down to weight class but that way classes kinda stack to you know it's not just like bringing down the price you're not competing with Fox's anymore. There's a whole group of phones in that area now. And it's GonNa. Be a tough battle because in the phone department, there are some really big names out there like Samson. Apple. So it's it's not GonNa be any easier I direction but it would have been cooler to see things like to see those flags of specs or. Sort of flagship specs at that price point. Seeing snapdragon age sixty, five or something in there rather than the seven sixty five being able to have those things and kind of call like, Hey, boo, just slashing prices. That's that's a more interesting story you know but I mean it's still and it had like one twenty hurts you know just just those features that we expect from the flagship is if they were able to bring that down then we're. We're able to compete. That's actually like the central conflict of the pixels who pays attention to the pixel like really truly who knows what the Pixel Tech nerds right people that are like really into phones attack an android or like Oh. Yeah. I know about the Pixel I know what that means I know people know that Google makes a phone or whatever. But like the people that are really paying attention are the people that know the difference would might care about the difference between a ninety one, hundred, twenty screen so they're making a phone for the masses but the. Only people paying attention to them are people that are in attack, and that's a really hard thing for them to deal with and people in that category that that market is looking. So heavily those numbers yeah under super informed exactly and even if the numbers tell the entire story or they don't, you know exactly take the experience that audience is suber driven by those numbers like insanely. So it does make it a lot tougher because people will just look at it on paper and say, Hey, this I mean, this oneplus near over here has forty cents megapixel camera thirty megapixel. Really really tough well, lucky for everybody There are Youtube Channel Take consumer that will tell the people about the specs and about the numbers. So the understanding but also talk about the actual experience of the thing if it's any good and the average get Super Schwab, where can people find you if they wanNA look for you youtube back actually anywhere you can find me can also media just type in your average consumer and Alibaba. Well. Appreciate you coming on the PODCAST and I'll be waiting for your up five view. Sounds good to see her.
A Top Crypto Exchange CEO Explains Why The 2020 Boom Is Different
"I'm really excited about our guest today a very important player in the industry, of course, over the last several months along with everything else everything's going to the moon these days stocks gold. Bond you name it. CRYPTO currencies are no exception and it feels like there's certainly the most amount of enthusiasm that we've seen in. CRYPTO price in the the boom in twenty seventeen, and still the questions are remain in. There's still plenty of skeptics. What's it forward this all going is this just another bubble that will burst like last time though we're going to dig into some of these questions today very excited to bring in our guest Catherine Coli. She is the CEO of financial us a crypto currency exchange in the US, a wholly owned subsidiary. By chance to one of the biggest crypto currency exchanges in the world Catherine thank you very much for joining us. Thank you so much. Really excited to be on. So I do remember last time during last the last boom twenty-seven teen We did see the emergence of finance, which is the company that owns you just what is the structure and relationship of finance and financial us. I hate to come out of the gates correcting you on a couple of things, but I'm going to so okay, that's fine. That's fine. So binavince DOT COM, it's a global ecosystem that really has been around for the last three years at really expanding the access around the world for people to engage with digital assets and around last year in the summertime. I joined to become the CEO Finance us which is actually an independent. Entirely run out of the United States with the ability to license the technology that finance dot COM has. So you think about matching engine, the tech stack that's really there. We're able to really bring that into the US as well as customize it entirely for an American audience. So when you think about a Crypto crypto global platform, so many things are so different in the United States, the on ramps. Ach Debit cards, wires, all the dollar components. So everything has to be custom fit and made specifically to the US. So that's really where by Nance US comes in the other components are US regulation. So in terms of violence us, we're a registered with Fincen we have a are regulated by the state level with the money transmitter licences fully operating in thirty eight states the newest state in Florida and so everything we're doing is in line with the US regulation. As catered to in American user. Got It okay. With that out of the way and I appreciate you clarifying it and I want people to understand what the exact structure is. Let me start with what I see is sort of one of the issues or problems with the crypto currency industry writ large as a market and. I want to hear I'm sure you'll disagree with me but this is this is something that I think about a lot so. Late. Twenty seventeen or you know people started getting like super into Bitcoin also a theory and maybe a couple of others. And then by like. November and December of that year suddenly the market was just flooded with supply and suddenly it's like and now here by some bitcoin cash and then here by like eight more heard forks of bitcoin cash. Oh, and there's like fifty other. ICO's. So basically you have this thing which kind of started off essentially as bitcoin and bitcoin alone in one of the big selling point was the fact that is unique that there's a fixed supply of it but then the industry strikes me as manufacturing. So many new assets to capture the demand for crypto and so suddenly exchanges become in my mind flooded. With new coined new project very fast the incentive for new players is not to jump on a project that say already gone up ten thousand percent but to start a new project that could itself go ten thousand percent and so then eventually it all of comes crumbling down because the investor the end buyer is just sort of choked with us so much apply and so am curious if you think that phenomenon Israel it seems like that way to me and are we seeing it again this time with the numerous the hundreds of new coins that seemed to be emerging onto the ecosystem every day. You hit the nail on the head. So when she knock Komodo came out with is in the or imagination for a peer to peer network with this scarce. Asset You realized that this would be absolutely possible assuming no other coin was manufactured. No other supply came in to dilute it, and this was the only way that would be. But. You forget that humans have a competitive need, and so we really can't take people away from building something that can be better stronger or better marketed or cater to a different audience, and so you're going to always see people try to riff on it or a fork as the The industry says along when you're using the same elements of a blockchain, just rebranding it and so with that I, I agree with you that it does seem like, oh no, I can't I can't really see which one I'm going to be involved in, but that's really the element that we face in all things in life. I it wasn't the Coca Cola was the only carbonated beverage that was out there. You are always going to see something come up new something that can either be capturing a new market audience or something that was gonna be delivering a different need so that that's really where I see the human need for competition continuing and we have to accept that. The best part about that is you get innovation so where there sings like the birth of the theory on which then has led a c. items as humorous as Crypto Kitties, and then as impactful as stable coins, you're also seeing it changed the way were were seeking yields now. So you've got different components that are letting people really evaluate industry can change the game
Women's Equality Day with Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester
"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with representative Lisa Blunt Rochester, of Delaware. She joins me to discuss women's equality and the importance of empowering other women and in the context of commemorating the one hundredth anniversary of the nineteen limit. We'll talk about how we can learn from our past and create inclusive movements that lift up all women. Representative Front. Rochester. Made History herself and her two thousand sixteen election to Congress as the first black woman and the first woman of color to be elected to represent the seat. She was also a member of Vice President Biden's victory vetting committee, and we discussed that process as well as the strengths that Kamala, Harris brings to the ticket. Lastly, we talk about what moved her to run for office herself and it's truly a moving powerful story and I'm so. Thankful that she shared it. So without further ADO, here's my conversation with representative Lisa Want Rochester, or a Flint Rochester. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you so much and I'm so excited to be here in. This is what I think about the ratification of the nineteenth amendment and women's Equality Day now that passage was so crucial to what women have today and where we are today, but I can't help but imagine where we might be today had that movement. been more inclusive you know. Yeah Yeah I think about that because we have record number of women running for Congress record number of women in Congress, right I wondered like what can we do now? As we move forward to make sure that that we don't repeat those mistakes you know Jen I. think that's a perfect place to start because I think by looking at the past if you if you learn from it you can grow. It's interesting. I've heard people talk about this centennial as not necessarily a celebration but more of a commemoration in and it was a feat in to itself. I mean when you think about the effort and the the marches and the efforts that folks may particularly women at that time. But we also think about the fact that for women many women of color that the opportunity to vote really didn't come. into the sixties and so you think about as you said, what what could we have achieved head we been more unified then and you can think about that and dwell on it, and then say what are the lessons learned and I think the fact I got elected in twenty sixteen I came in at the same time is Donald Trump and I had never run for anything in my entire life and. You know it was a Delaware had never elected a woman. Delaware had never elected a person of color to Congress. We only have one seat and so at the time that I decided to run I had served in state government had run our urban league here I had lived around the world and raise my children but it was really the unexpected tragic death of my husband who went on a business trip ruptured his Achilles Tendon, after playing a game of basketball before work meeting and then blood clots went to his heart and lungs and it just it just shook me to the. Core, and I had to find my purpose still on his planet and you know wasn't until like a year later I was I felt like I was numb just kind of going through the motions and I, started noticing other people that were you know having challenges like in my own city of Wilmington there was a lot of they were talking about the the the gun violence and then I saw a dad and three kids in a supermarket in front of me, and he had to put a bunch of grapes because they were nine dollars in that lake. Shook me out of my own. My own sadness and I think you know Donald Trump capitalized going people's anger or sadness or you know the challenges they were facing an inspired native run not knowing who was going to be president or what I was going to be facing and I think after he won and we had the women's March I think that was a watershed moment because it showed the possibility I mean the diversity of the crowd from you know black and Latino Latina in a trans in Muslim and Jewish like it was everybody there together and people haven't led up since then and so I went in two thousand sixteen by Twenty Eighteen Emily's list an organization that helps women candidates which helped me. They saw a thousand percent increase in women's interest to run for office. So I do think we can learn from the past. I. Think. We can still commemorate and celebrate but we gotta take that and turn it into action and that's what's happening right now, and that's what gets me excited about this hundredth anniversary is that it's not just about Jay, let's celebrate this moment it is about how do we do the work and how do we? How do we change the course of history and and in people's lives? So yeah, it's an exciting time
Alibaba's Ant Group files for IPO in Hong Kong, Shanghai
"Earlier today China's Anti Group filed for an initial public offering in Hong Kong Shanghai it could become the largest IPO in history bigger than facebook bigger than Saudi. Arabia's state owned oil company even bigger than Alibaba the Chinese tech giant that originally berthed aunt group as a mobile payments company called Alipay now and does not have much presence in the US particularly after the trump administration blocked efforts a couple of years ago. To buy money transfer company money gram but in China, it is the financial technology company with a huge footprint in everything from payments to lending to investing to wealth management, it's even got a joint venture in food delivery and according to its IPO prospectus and profits are up more than one thousand percent between the first half of two, thousand nineteen and the first half of two, thousand, twenty hitting three point two, billion dollars. Company that in the past would have rushed to list shares in New York much like Alibaba didn't twenty fourteen but aunt instead turned its back on the big apple and that matters for two reasons I, it's a passive aggressive escalation of China tensions too. It's an effort by China to prove that Hong. Kong. Can remain a global financial hub in spite of a new national security law that undercuts the conditions that help turn Hong Kong into a global financial hub in the first place in short. And it's IPO are as important to geopolitics as they are to capital markets or tech markets, and all three will be paying very close attention as the listing gets closer
Ellen & Kevin Meet Up, Miley Wants Boring
"Morgan is off but of course, hunter is here and. Scott Tweedie it's hanging out with us. Guys to be back. I actually went to announce the tonight that I'm donating one dollar to a charity for every trap that has posted. In the last month. Dollars. We're going to run you. Out. Yeah Listen Scott we're happy you're doing that I will continue the 'cause only for that reason and not for the DMZ every time I do it. There's GonNa. Serious damage. Control. Going on with that actually speaking of Damage Control Ellen is still doing some over her toxic workplace drama. So what does she go out and do she has lunch with Kevin? Hart you guys pictures are actually getting a lot of attention. Do you think he was giving her advice? You'll initially thought that would just hanging out to give each other fashion advice. By Kevin. Hart especially in this heat at the moment but I think they're probably working on another show together. In the future L. and they're probably brainstorming ideas for me. Personally I thought well, the apprentice has been done but maybe the intern. That's what we need right now from. That's what happens. If you lose, you lose the competition, you have to be Ellen's intern for a year. We'll see I, think they're just friends and I think they're meeting. But the only problem is I feel like people who are this famous are really out of touch and I feel like everybody rallying around ellen she's treated fine because they're on the same playing field, the the people who are saying that they were mishandled and mistreated where people who are working for her. I. Want someone who makes less than two million dollars a year to come out and say is a nice person because right now saying not a lot of people under to milk come into her defense. Yeah. A thousand percent even one meal. Onto a Miley Cyrus are the recent interview that she did on the call. Her Daddy podcast is really the gift that keeps on giving losing virginity and confirming her split with breakout headlines last week but now obsessed with who she wants to date next. Do you have like a? Are you hyper crazy dealing a calm person I usually end up complaining that they're boring what I need I or Definitely. Need like a calming I need an anchor. I need a wait. Someone has to bring more to the table than their plate. They can't just be like, fill me up all the. Curry you guys think that she would actually with like a very even kill boring partner is that realistic I think the Personal Daito next. That's really unfortunate for them because they know the person. Well, I'll as someone who has a new rule where he turns his phone off from nine pm to nine. AM here we go. I'd like to myself I like to think that I have a good calming anchor me Nina telling me. That's not true. I don't even understand how you can turn your phone off for that long like we were we have jobs like Howard. Was the. Heck small time they your phone off when you the best content after nine. PM I. Hope my question about this whole thing is like I'm very concerned that we're already talking about who miley supposed to be dating next. She's discussing this on the podcast because my concern for Miley is the she moves on really fast. Is it okay? I just feel like maybe she should focus on healing from the Last relationship she's been in to relationships since her split from Liam and that was barely a year ago.

How Does Stress Trigger Physiological Conditions?
"Hey guys welcome to not another anxiety show I'm your host Kelly Walker and joining me today as my co-host Erica late them. My, Darling. Good sweating just existing. It went from the dead of winter in a like distortion. What was that show that I never watch game of thrones like the white walkers are coming to the Sahara chocolates too Humid Sahara. If the Amazon. My hair is huge right now I've got some curly hair, so my friend was like. Why is your hair so curly? Did you check the humidity? It's like a thousand percent. That's what. Science! Science it can become a thousand I am drinking the air so. In such rated we'll. However you tell me everything. All besides that, you know just. Just hitting up the Instagram, where I saw an interesting, a really great question. Right like we have a great question. We got a great questions, but this one was. And I will read it to you any second now, but this one was something that we both went. Okay okay, we can talk about this like it's even beyond. Anxiety bites because it's sort of getting back to the basics of song. Yes, so. and. I think there's like you know I WANNA make sure. We sort of answering a no read it in a second here but I wanNA. Make sure we sort of answer the question, but there's a little more to it underneath the surface that I, also WanNa touch on, which is why it's not just like a simple anxiety bites because it was like sort of an evocative question for us and I definitely thought it was worth probably something we've touched on here and there, but never like dedicated an entire episode to so Yeah I think it's. It's definitely worth taking some time. Okay Ready. I understand that things like heart palpitations may lead one to think that they have a heart condition, which is not actually present. I'd like you to do a segment about how stress can trigger actual physiological conditions. Love. This thing I mean you remember this coaching? air-cooled heart palpitations, but I was like yeah, okay, thanks a lot for the vice. Mine's real. And, it's no less real, but. Yes. Yep Yep and so I WanNa make sure I answer this listeners question about stress, and how it, how it impacts our bodies, so I'll take a second to sorta like dive into a biology lesson, which is my favorite thing. Ever sorry Erica bear with me. There's going to be I listen. I love. The biology I just don't understand sixty two percent of it. To Hey. That's passing right on. Oh. Yes, that's passing. That's a New York it is. That's passing. So yeah, I do WANNA speak to to how stress can trigger actual physiological conditions I don't want to share them here, but she she sort of shared a few things that have arisen for her as the result of anxiety so. It is it is well researched documented that chronic stress is one factor keyword one factor of so many others that can contribute to the development or exasperation of physiological conditions. Right stress makes chronic pain worse. It makes gastric issues worse. It makes cardiovascular issues worse. It makes it really exacerbates everything because. Stress touches every single one of our system, so I mean it really does make sense since chronically elevated stress, hormones like cortisol disrupt so many of our body's metabolic functions, but let's hear Mon. that's the one I can remember cortisol. I. Bet you know more than you, thank. For years later. Okay so! I wish it was as simple. This a little more nuanced I wish it was a simple saying. Anxiety and stress caused sickness right, but. We've sort of touched on this or mentioned it in a few previous episodes Dr Kelly mcgonagall. She's a psychologist from Stanford and go watch Ted Talk She's. She's very. He has a Tedtalk But to like basically some up her ted talk on and her and her research She's focused on how. Our understanding, of. Stress. And how it affects the body so. Finding was that when we change our relationship distress, or whatever are currently ship is, we can change how stress affects our body. More, specifically yet right like it always feels like an end. She says this in her Ted Talk. She's like you know I came into practices as a psychologist demonizing stress, eliminate stress managed stress, control, stress, right, but so many of us in the anxiety. Psycho are well. Of how trying to control stress or anxiety goes tension rises, anxiety rises. It's not very effective and Her major finding was that when we change our relationship to stress, right, we change how stress affects our body more specifically when we relate to stress as a natural response that exists to prepare, motivate and protect us than we don't suffer the same negative health outcomes is someone who relates to trust to stress as something to be entirely. Avoid it when we relate to stress as the former, a completely different physiological response occurs different ratio of stress hormones in addition to protective hormones are released mitigating the effects of stress on our body.

"Ignorant s for and please lord don't let none of us lose our check today like that's all we ask for a man in our shop you know i get that but fox news that vigil them praying before these games in air doing a story about donald trump you know talking about the eagles players not come into the white house anymore insinuating that these players are being punished for kneeling during the anthem because of course that's all these fucking crickets have been worried about is people kneeling during the anthem instead of what it's really about which shouting again to my girl april ryan for asking that lioness bitch sarah huckabee sanders bitch does your president know what they are kneeling about does he understand that it's about police brutality and black people being killed even though the unarmed not posing any threat at all the police and sarah being like the president's spoke about this multiple times girl why are you still asking me about this you dumb ass member bishara staying despite her being that way ryan asked to anyway and it still the question like do you understand that's really what it's about box news which i'm sure is the only network tv that donald trump watches aired this whole thing and of course ended up having to apologize later because several of the eagles plays black and white spoke out saying this is fucked up this ain't even got nothing to do with the whole nil situation y'all can't be serious right now we're playing before games with our teammates will before the anthem how is this being used for your propaganda the sad y'all should be better than this and so they ended up having to apologize aired on fox news and night with shannon bream and they said during our report about president trump cancelling the eagles trip to the white house to celebrate this bubble win we showed unrelated philip prayers of players.

"In the white house and everybody associated with the white house but also fuck fox news i was gonna say not sure if you've heard this story or not because of your version sports but the philadelphia eagles won the super bowl last year i was very happy that they the the sure weren't the eagles played the patriots and they won it was great joyce across the country but ones yes friend they are the great ones i'm so proud of you so the eagles were scheduled to go to the white house they initially believe confirmed eighty one players and staff we're going to attend then when like the real numbers were requested it was more like five players and stuff we're going to attend fair remaining almost nobody wanted to risk being associated with donald trump and their whole administration which you know can't really blame them for that a lot of people suggested maybe carson wentz was going to go i think it came out today that nick foles was one of the few eagles players who was willing to go not carson wentz in addition to maybe a couple of the coaches and the mascot the mask was gonna go so you take that however you want to but fox lose reported on the issue and there's guys probably just some person they found somewhere who was willing to do so the what's really hilarious is that what ended up so i won't call him president trump your nigga donald.
