Paper variety call last weekend decision to suspend operations sudden and shocking officials made the choice after. MGM On Friday postponed the release of its next James Bond movie no time to die. MGM had planned to release the double o seven Caper in November. Now it's planned tentatively, we assume for next April even pre pandemic theaters depended on blockbuster films to fill seats since March studios have been postponing releases and in many cases moving them to streamers instead. But postponement of the twenty seventh bond film was a crippling blow to theaters counting on the release to make some money. This year according to variety the decision was so abrupt that Cinta world didn't even tell employees about the suspensions rather the company left thousands to learn about their fates in newspaper headlines and tweets workers who belong to the Cinema World Action, group and employee collective tweeted that the company gave them. No warning workers have been left out of discussions that should have included our voices they stated adding that to find out you may no longer have a job from the media is awful.

Takeaways from the NYT report on Trump's tax returns
"Never give a tax return when being audited. They're extremely complex people wouldn't understand him now the house goes and such defending they WANNA know every deal. I've ever done since declaring his candidacy for President Donald? Trump. Has refused to share his tax returns and gone to court to stop them being released. On Sunday The New York Times published an investigation into more than twenty years worth of Mr Trump's taxes, but not the documents behind them to protect its sources. The New York Times an explosive report despite receiving over four hundred, million dollars through two thousand eighteen report showed he paid paltry amounts of federal tax in recent years. The report claims that Mr Trump paid remarkably little tax since the turn of the Millennium. It suggests that many of the president's businesses are chronically loss-making. and it puts numbers to just how deeply personally indebted the president is. The revelations prompted a familiar retorted. News it's totally fake news made up fake. We went through the same store as you could ask me the same questions for years ago had a litigated this and talk about it. They are the same questions questions that arose in the presidential debates between Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton almost exactly for years ago maybe he doesn't want the American people. All of you watching tonight to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes because trump's rebuttal at the time that makes me smart smart. Tonight another set of presidential debates this time between Mr Trump and Joe Biden. It seems certain that once again, Mr Trump's accounting practices will figure into the discussion. The big headline takeaways on that he paid. No federal income tax whatsoever intended the fifteen years through two, thousand seventeen and in twenty sixteen seventeen the year that he ran for the presidency his first year old in the presidency he paid any seven hundred fifty dollars in federal Income Tax James. Ashville economists, Washington bureau chief. His company's myriad companies were making truly enormous losses over these years. Presidents companies have been losing hundreds of millions of dollars. He's heavily indebted at the same time, and the the record also show us that hundreds of millions of debt. In fact, around four hundred millions of data he's personally on the hook for his liable to fall due mostly within the next couple of years. So it creates a picture of a heavily heavily indebted loss-making businessman on a truly Gargantuan scale who's been paying little or no federal income tax and has serious debt worries ahead of him as he faces a cash crunch meanwhile. But how can it be? He's paid. So little tax over all of that time. I guess two main ways one is that he appears to be setting a large amount of personal family expenditure against his business revenues. For example, he is setting his family home expenses, his plane expenses, even his apparently also colossal head writing expenses against VAT revenue but by far, the biggest means that he's avoiding paying large amounts of tax walls taking in hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue is by setting those revenues against the enormous losses that he's making overall to give you just some taste of the scale of that loss making it. Seems that the president has lost more than three, hundred, million dollars since the turn of the century on his golf courses alone he's lost more than fifty five, million dollars on his Washington DC hotel, which has become a sort of symbol for trump world of the president's firm hold on the capital, and yet it seems it's losing money hand over fist, and all of that is above board. He may already been some difficulty over the scale of losses that he's claiming to set against his revenues. The long trailed audit that his tax affairs. From the IRS we learn relate to attacks refunded that he received decade or so ago of seventy-three million dollars related, it appears to loss-making casinos in Atlantic city a business that he walked away from though we don't know it appears that there is an least an allegation or suspicion that he may have profited from those casinos even as he walked away from. Them if that is the case, he's not liable that tax refund that tax refund plus subsequent interest would now mean a hundred million dollar bill for the president. From the IRS, are you yourself surprised I mean that the president has been fighting so hard to keep this under wraps I just wonder how much you're surprised by what you see in these files. I don't think we're surprised by any of this. We already knew something of the scale of the president's loss-making. He declared a loss of nearly a billion dollars back in the ninety s sufficient to avoid paying any federal income tax for around a couple of decades that was in the sense is remarkable as anything that we've learned from this latest enormous cache of additional detail. But there are a couple of really significant scoops and then the fact that he could be on the. Hook for so much money from the IRS. If the audit goes against him in the fact that he's personally liable for so many hundreds of millions of dollars of loan that will fall due in the next few years. That also is a very significant detail in for those that worry that the president may be compromised that his indebtedness could lead him to make judgements that the American people might have calls to question for those worries. This is I think sort of additionally inflaming. But I mean the picture that emerges here regardless of the creativity of the accounting is somebody who is not running businesses very well. So. Donald Trump entered politics back in twenty fifteen claiming to things that he would bring his business genius to the Serbs the American people make government work better, and that he would sort of right the wrongs that lofty elite were habitually visiting upon the hardworking vulnerable American people and I think the of broad takeaway from this trove of tax information is either Donald Trump is an absolutely appalling businessman in which case is I claim is hard to support or he's bilking the treasury of millions of dollars of avoided tax that he should be paying in which case his second contention is also rather heart support. And do you think either I if either can be parched or or stood up, we'll have any influence on the election on the debates this week. Let's let's break that down Jason I. Think this is not going to be a sort of major vote moving scandal. We've had equivalent scandals that have that have not moved the president's support up or down much a tool and I. think there's no reason to expect this to do so and yet it's significant significant. Because the president opinion polls consistently tell us is substantially behind Joe Biden in this race with only little more than a month to go before the election. What this does is put yet another hurdle in front of his trying to re come on the news cycle get on the front foot, take the attack to Mr Biden nine. We may see some of that in the first presidential debate tonight where Joe Biden has really been handed the script by the New York Times as it of opening attack on a president who loses so much money in his business of as pays such little taxes and result.
Trump has record reelection spending despite trailing Biden
"Even before their convention, the trump campaign, the Republican Party, and their affiliated committees at spent more than a billion dollars over three years on trump's reelection efforts. No presidential campaign has ever spent that much at this point in the season in July alone, the reelection campaign had raised one, hundred, sixty, five, million dollars Biden raised one, hundred, forty, million in July after having led trump and fundraising the to prior months.

Will Australia have access to a vaccine if/when it is discovered?
"This is corona cost a podcast all about the coronavirus I'm health report a Teigen Taylor on physician and Journalists Alter Norman Swan it's Tuesday the eighteenth of August. So No, we're hearing that the government seen advanced negotiations with a couple of different companies about a vaccine securing a supply of vaccine for. STRATEGIA. Even though don't actually know which accents GonNa work yet what's involved in this process of making sure that we can get it once we know what works well, there are two ways of getting one is to enter into events purchase deal. Which is what America has done with several manufacturers. So for example, with the Oxford Vaccine I think they've pre-booked three hundred million dollars is the European Communities pre-booked four, hundred, million doses. Then there's does is they've got to give to Garvey for low income countries. It doesn't leave much in Britain's got to get. Some doesn't much out of their first billion doses. So you know and that's the front of the queue. There is an Indian manufacturer sending up to manufacture some of these vaccines particularly the Oxford one. Last week on seven thirty, the telling Nolan from the University of Melbourne was saying that he's reasonably optimistic going to be more than one vaccine available in a reasonably short space of time in other words this year sometime towards the end of this year. And therefore, there probably will be plenty of doors to go around. But that doesn't mean to say that we're home and hosed with that. Now, it's believed that the negotiations the government's doing are with the Oxford Group, but we don't have manufacturing capacity for that kind of vaccine in Australia. Sort of vaccines that CSL US but we have got expertise in vaccine production and the easiest way to do this is to license the technology and manufacturing in Australia so that we can guarantee that. So so in other words taking supply away from anywhere else we would be manufacturing the vaccine for our own use. It does mean, of course that if it doesn't work, we've got to find. Vaccine from elsewhere but it's quite likely that what are the vaccines which will be fun to? We'll be the vaccine, but it's not guaranteed right. So like scientists got a lot of different irons in the fire here and some companies have decided to back a particular one and stop making that. So that one that you mentioned the Oxford one has a billion orders already in what if it doesn't work Tip It all down the drain just closed because of the junk heap that's taking. So the so the least risk for Ustralia is to license the technology and pay a license fee vaccine. Without pre purchasing vaccine so that we can produce it if it works. And in the hope that we can tool up pretty quickly. Probably even test that in advance and you might want WanNa, take a risk and produce vaccine. Ahead of time we they're doing in the United Kingdom or the other way that the the government can do to pre purchase vaccines and what Americans do with some scenes saying, well, we will guarantee you x billion dollars ranks one, hundred, million dollars if your vaccine is approved for registration so there's a caveat on it as well, but it does give those companies the ability to borrow money or. Gain grants or other things because they've got guaranteed income should it be successful? Can we take a step for a second and talk about what it actually takes to get a vaccine from the lead benchtop into the little glass vial that you see at the pharmacy, which is what they didn't stick in your arm. The problem is that was the vaccines that are most likely to be successful. Initially, it's novel technology and the novel technology is on both sides of the equation there's this edge of. And there's the actual bit of the virus itself. So with the Oxford vaccine, the event that's going to amplify the immune response is actually an admiral virus from a chimpanzee. The Russian and Chinese vaccines are also adenovirus vaccines. Now, that requires new technology development, develop it safely, and then you go to the technology to produce the the bit of the Corona virus that you're gonNA use to stimulate the specific immune response with the Madeira no one in America, the vaccine, which is a little packet of. Genetic messaging which goes into the cell to produce. A bit of the virus to stimulate the immune response. There's no Ativan. But. That requires special manufacturing technology as well. So Australia acquiring, the latest technology would be acquiring, know how that's going to be very handy for into the future and makes us independent of other supplies overseas Rava van necessarily pre purchasing large numbers of the doses from overseas in the hope that they were going to be approved. Now, America's done a couple of things that they're they've pre purchased unconditionally some vaccine and they've pre purchased some vaccines. On the basis of them having been approved and they're just hedging their bets and Some money might well be wasted in this and some vaccines which are being pre manufactured such as Oxford vaccine may have to be junked if it doesn't work one hopes not.
J.Lo's Money Moves
"Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez not only are they dominating the real estate game you buys but they recently dropped reported three hundred million bucks on a bid for the New York mets and as if they. Needed any more side-hustle. They've also reportedly invested in Viagra wellness startup. How much is too much Nina Hunter, how much telling me? Well, this is the thing I was looking at all the money that they were spitting on these properties I. Think like they're selling this property, but they also have like a ten million dollar house in Bel? Air They have a twenty eight million dollar house. In the Hamptons like it's insane but then I looked at their net worth and I think a rod was I really it was worth some coin but he's worked almost as much as her. He's worth like three, hundred, million dollars and she's over three, hundred and fifty million. So. They're almost a billion dollars together and also when they fail three hundred online, you always add fifty more just between us. Is. A little more. That's the case. Then according to these websites, I'm worth fifty, million and five, hundred, thousand dollars. Which? Now, ladies want to get in. Now's the chance fifty, million, five, hundred I do think there is this weird world where like of course they're investing, they want to go ahead and use their money helps having three hundred million dollars in a bank account making very little interest as opposed to investing in something that actually believe in like. The mets because no one believes in the mets but John. Lewis State is going to go up like crazy always and they're investing in areas that are not going to go down. It makes sense. It's just a matter of how much money do you
Conversation With Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson
"Delighted to welcome. To our program, a very important guests at this unbelievably strange time from the Mountain West Conference Commissioner Craig Thompson Commissioner thank you very very much for making the time I I, I can only imagine what your schedule is like. These days especially Zoom Bill Assuming there is one good afternoon. Paul good to be with you. You know I hope to mode no more about The next ninety minutes to two hours I have a four o'clock board calling five o'clock standing Monday de call, so we all compare notes and Kinda live by that old adage. God gave us two ears and one off for a reason, right? We're trying to learn from each other. Well we appreciate you making time I'm curious before we get down to some of the obvious questions Since, this occurred you. You've been very obviously active in in the NCAA, basketball tournament, having chaired the the men's basketball committee, and it all started there, and and I know in in your many many years is as commissioner. You've experienced so much but How do you? How do you prepare yourself for something like this? which is literally off the charts. Really is and you know again you don't because. no-one there might have been a few people worldwide They'd be well into their hundreds that were around nineteen eighteen. Spanish flu days, but For the most part, nobody's dealt with any of this Paul. So it's all new, and and it's It's disconcerting. It's hard. It's sad, but it's It's life and it's something we. We have to adjust to and and moved from. In as you get closer to what are really critical decisions, other conferences have made these choices many have not What what do you weigh as you're about to go onto? Another call here how how do you determine these things? Well, it's really got to beat a the safety and the health soccer you I think it's simply going to come down to what is the risk tolerance for for all the various groups just within our FBI subdivision and certainly there's. A rank and file and differences between the autonomous five leaks and a group of five leaks, but You've got you've got. A ton of governors. There's fifty state governors in that up BS group, one hundred thirty board of trustees, regions, one hundred thirty university presidents and Chancellors hundred thirty athletic directors under thirty head, football coaches, and I guarantee it dollar on the same page, and so you know we're. We're just trying to adjust on what makes the most sense for my university and ultimately our conferences. And everyone has a different set of circumstances as you said Commissioner Thompson but. It is late I think you know that we all we all know that. As you are about to go on these calls here in the next hour or two How do you start narrowing the window and coming to? Conclusions! Well we all kind of went into that false pretense and hope that fans should be better in July and August and we had time right back in March. We had four months to figure this out when we've got probably less than four weeks. A couple of weeks a big date coming up on Friday with you know the the six week period starting extended team practices, and then most camps opening somewhat in that August seventh time friend I! I had a good exchange with one of our head. Football coaches today saying you know I don't even know what to do. Because of campus regulations and concerns, we have one institution that's had nearly one hundred football players for little over a month. Now Paul and we have another institution that literally has no football players, conditioning of or working out degree, and so you know we're all over the map based on a local and university, muncipality rules and regulations and. I said this for months gone on standby. One of one of the big concerns and focal points for us is the state of California They just announced today that they're going to delay. The start of their prep season suggested until December or January didn't give an exacting, and they join a couple of states that the prep seasons have been canceled altogether one of our states New Mexico, so just just trying to deal with all the nuances and differences in rules, policies and allowances. As you as you try to deal with with some some issues before that certainly, the non-conference issues a lot of non conference. Games have been scrubbed. I. Has that been a major issue for you or Were you in reasonably good shape. Well it is a big issue, and of course years of all years. This is our twenty seven season A. We had more home games against PAC twelve than any time in our previous 21-year-history, we lost home games. Ucla at both. San Diego State ally. Utah, Colorado Washington state calendars on a state. They were GONNA play at the new two billion dollar NFL stadium in Las Vegas against UNLV so a lot of people like to point to that financial loss of losing the the six road at twelve games and a and a guarantee. Those seven home games from from both of financial interest level, and then ultimately you know television perspective CBS. Fox Aren't real thrilled. You know that we lost those seven home games. Talking to the Commissioner of the Mountain West Craig Thompson discussing all the variables. Commissioner. We. We've talked to so many different commissioners over these past few months, and as you as you so eloquently pointed out a minute ago. Everyone has a different set of circumstances and challenges you maybe more than than most because of the geographical aspect. But how do you think and it shouldn't be that hard to think about it since it's not far off? How how do you ultimately come up with what you would say? Good solution, not only for your member institutions, but for the safety of the athletes. Well again. You not to lean on your medical people and that's one of the. Major aspects of this board call coming up in an hour, so Paul because It's the first time that they in a while. They've heard directly from the the medical advisory group and you know they don't depend on them. You know they. They are the experts, will we? The board are economists and Then different walks of life. They're not medical people, per se, and so you know you really have to lean heavily on what makes sense I. I said four months ago and I I contend today. A lot of this is going to be perhaps probably triggered by what happens on our campuses. What they look like in the next month or so you know everybody's either hybrid mostly online You know there's GonNa. Be Certainly people walking around campus, but you know you. You really can't expect to have a college athletics if you don't have a fairly open in some degree. Campus. Commissioner I, it's no secret Wherever conferences are located and and and spread that football pays the majority of the bills there. There's some outliers of course but What's at stake you just from a revenue standpoint? Well you know. Let's all kinds of figures in I I know that A couple of our department said have lost Well in excess of ten million dollars now, and then could jump into without football alum Paul you know double and triple, and you know those are not insignificant numbers. They're smaller than the world. You live in I lived in Atlanta. For four years. New Orleans for twelve years both children born in New Orleans and well versed in an SEC football, and what it means in a walk of life, and so it's different, no question it's different I live in Colorado and and what it's like in Western states, but but none the less. You, do not escape whatever love your Ad. That football is probably that you know eighty eighty five percent of of an athletic budget, and and so it's so very important, but you know as harmful as painful rather as it is from the financial perspective now that cannot be the driving force won't be the driving force. It will be that the health and safety it'll be university decisions. You know I've always. Always felt. The presidents of universities and chances have an extremely difficult position now more so than ever because they're pushed him pulled in and all these different directions and you know I. Don't know how the decision will. Ultimately made would fall looks like from terms of football. I don't know who makes that decision, but Hopefully they'll be some clobbering collective. Let's let's go right to the College Football playoff. Can you even imagine a world where pick a number? Three conferences can play in the fall and seven up to play in the spring. What happens to see a p.? Is there a CFP? Does that make sense to have a CFP? I guess it might depend on those three conferences are and I use. You know you, you're GONNA have to look at this for for the good of everybody, and and you know the collaboration and collective exchange and we've seen conferences. Do things unilaterally I mean as a commissioner. You Work for twelve schools. You don't work for honored thirty FBI schools, and so you're doing what's right, and what's your membership is is directing and advise you to do, but we do have to get together and get the same page in some regards spor for the sake of the CFD for instance and the bowl system. I know at least I'm told in talking to your colleagues commissioners. We wind down. I know you've got a lot of meetings to that. You are a collaborative group. I mean that's a fact. I mean we see that all the time but it but I wonder though. Because we've already seen some some. Some schisms as we had the big ten, and then everyone else said something else I mean the PAC twelve and the big ten, and do you. Are you concerned about the stability of of what you do every day and try to work with everyone else within the framework of college athletics. I am and I'm not I mean again. We try to work together, but at the end of the day our plan for fourteen or ten members, order media have will dictate. What direction are leagues go and I know the NCAA takes a ton of shots, but the NCAA is membership driven. It's schools that are that are ultimately making decisions and the conferences the exact same way, so you know we can compare but I. I am concerned about The postseason college football, the the CFC's a five hundred million dollar enterprise NCAA. Basketball Championship is a six hundred million dollars in a prize number of conferences of two hundred and fifty to three hundred million dollar annual TV, contracts, and and we can't go ten I don't well. Yeah, anything's possible. You could go ten separate ways I. certainly don't think it's going to be that way at the end of the day. Commissioner will let you get back to your meetings, but thank you for making time. It was just a pleasure to to hear your perspective as someone who is so well respected. And revered in this industry we be well and let's hope for some good news. Stay safe yourself my friend.

Bad Day for Cash
"It's Thursday may seventh walking to market fully. I'm Chris L. Joining me. The one and only bill barker good to see you good to be here. Earning season just continues to roll along. We're going to talk about the delivery economy. The working from home economy. We're going to start with the war on cash and at the moment cash needs to call a timeout because cash giving its butt kicked square and pay pal both out with first-quarter reports boats stocks up more than ten percent. And it seems like this was less about the results that square and payback delivered in the four first quarter and more about the way everyone is thinking about. Non-cash payment business. Yeah I think that's fair They're interesting reports and this is not maybe certainly not only them but Lift for instance I think or pay Pals report sort of breaks down results into the january-february period And then the march period and then the April period and then go forward period so when they talk about rapidly evolving business situations Many other companies are in the same boat where there's a pretty happy story to tell according to the numbers for January February and then a big change in March and then maybe a stabilization for these companies in April. And then just. We don't know what's going to happen going forward right and true of all businesses. They pretty much. If if there's one thing one unifying thread through every one of these conference calls regardless of the business it's people saying but we don't really know which is totally understandable but in the case of pay pal the I totally understand why they are eager to talk about the current quarter. It's like yes here's our. Here's our first quarter report but once we're done with this let's talk about what's happening in Q. Two because what we're seeing is pretty exciting stuff. Yeah they're seeing. I think quarter million new subscribers a day. Something like that is the pace. They're on right now. I think may I was the largest increase or the largest number of new users. They've ever had This is an acceleration of the future. Really you've covered it You've thrown the war on cash name around it People been following it and this Accelerates what has been going on To cash and where it's going and pay pal has been one of the principal beneficiaries of this A little bit more so than square for the last quarter. But they're both enjoying the very nice days. Stocks Square is is is more reliant on small businesses in a in a way that pay pal. Isn't I mean just for anyone who's been to a small independent shop or a farmer's market or something like that where you know you walk into a tent you think about buying whatever they're selling and they've got the little square thing that you swipe right there so I mean that's that's probably putting a little bit of dent in their q one numbers but it's hard to imagine square not succeeding over the next five to ten years? Yeah it's the you know little white square boxes where Swipe your credit card that you come to know and perhaps love perhaps not love? I mean I have discovered when I am operating with any sort of square interaction that there's a new opportunity to tip somebody at the counter for something that in almost all other circumstances. I don't find myself tipping for this option to just would you like to just go ahead and add? I don't know ten fifteen eighteen twenty percent onto that Which doesn't occur everywhere else. But it's just enough of to guilt me into doing that often. So your and you didn't give specific examples but it sounds like you're talking about. Hey if I'm a coffee shop. Yeah if I had some change or whatever. I'd throw that in the tip jar if I go to an independent bookshop. I'm not necessarily looking to tip the person I'm buying the book from no and yet here a square asking me whether I might consider that So the little square devices aren't getting much business in an era where people are not going into the little small shops but the CASH APP. is Is is doing good business for them and you know competitor then. Mo and You know all the money That you probably owe me for instance you can Use either of those two. Oh you don't owe me any money at the moment you now. I'd be like what are you talking about you? You were in that poker game the other week. That was not a poker game bill. Man Be Twenty Bucks No I. I did hear that you were the person walking away with the money. Yeah Yeah and and now you don't even have to see bill man you can just like send a message on slack and just be like hey man then give me my twenty bucks. Let's move onto the delivery economy and help me understand this because we got. We'RE GOING TO GET THE FIRST QUARTER RESULTS FROM UBER. After the closing bell today but we already got first-quarter results from lift and grab hub and on the surface. It would appear as though grub hub had the better first-quarter results and yet because they broke even and everyone was expecting hub to report a loss and Rub. Shares are down ten twelve percent. Meanwhile lift stock is up more than twenty percent this morning. It's still down for the year but maybe it was The benefit of low expectations but first quarter revenue for lift was up twenty three percent compared to a year ago. Yeah well there's a difference between a stock that is up twenty three percent to get back to about half of the price. It was a couple of months ago And the stocks like Paypal and square. That are at you know approaching all-time highs off of the you know perhaps You know some of the earnings expectations. you know changed around their stories. I think for you know lift. Things are improved over yesterday. Mostly in the sense that the company has reported. It's it's going to save about three hundred million dollars a year on run rate basis On its operations by scaling back on some of it's expensive. So that's that's the better part of the story there. Really the The numbers declined. Of course precipitously in in March And and continue to be In April Over where they were in January and February. But you know the company was sowing pretty pretty strong growth going into the beginning of this For the whole quarter twenty three percent. increased revenue for the quarter. That's completely on the back of the strong. I two months it do. You have any teams like every quarter when home depot comes out with their results. Lows comes out the next day and it's almost always similar but not quite as good. I don't know if we have enough data because they uber and lift haven't been public companies nearly as long as Home Depot and Lowe's but any should we look at Uber reporting after the bell today and think. Oh yeah it'll probably be about what lift is doing. Yeah and in part because Hoover's already announced The massive Layoffs that were announced yesterday and that was I can't remember exactly how many people it was But it was massive In terms of the business so I think that they'll be able to quantify what the savings from that are going to be They obviously found ridership way. Way Off Right now and they've got to find saving somewhere and that usually comes at the cost of employees. So that is. I think the reason that it's up today aside from just the you know the mimicking lift is the. There's I don't know that this would affect the stock price but the announcement that it is a taking an investment in Lime and getting rid of its scooter business and I guess. combining that with limes I I don't know about where you live but where I live. Yeah we need some consolidation in the scooter business way too many of them and it's just again now. These aren't all going to survive. So yeah the sooner you all can get together and decide which brand is going to survive the better. We're all going to be. Yeah I have not found myself using any of the scooters that have plentiful an available wherever you go around Alexandria but Also getting back to Grub a down thirteen percent today. I think that the results today you would have to have believed that if there were a time when Grubb was going to have a great quarter it would be the one just announced So the fact that they weren't really able to translate to additional orders into additional profitability and have said that they are nearly all of their profits. the in the coming quarter are going to be used to generate additional orders for the restaurant partners. Okay you know being a good partner with the restaurants which they have been accused of not being a great partner to restaurants in the past maybe long term but you know they're they're a company that you would think well they. They be raking it in right now. And that's that's really not the case. Yeah this is absolutely one of those times where it's I think. Completely Fair for investors to look at a business and say it's put up or shut up time if Grub can't get it done at a time when there's a national pandemic and people trapped inside their homes. I'm sorry Yup it may be time to move on and where you know. The the UBER EATS is a legitimate competitor. as his door dash but I think that that will be one of the interesting things to get a from. This evening's call by Uber They're gonNA see the ridership way way way down but ubereats will make up Some of those losses For the company and say the other thing that they'll be pointing to is is the money that they have been able to save going forward With the UNFORTUNATE LAYOFFS. That are necessary. Let's ramp up with Peleton Shares of Peleton fifteen percent hitting an all time high although it's only been a public company since last September so but still a good day for Peleton third quarter report big again not surprising big jump in sales big jump in membership huge huge jumping in sales up sixty six percent something like that And the subscription revenue is up more more than that and this is without one of their principle items Really available for sale in most cases that is they're they're better known for the bikes but they also sell What I would deem to be outrageously expensive treadmills you might be able to comment on that because you're the ultra marathoner here and They sell treadmills which they can't Install right now because they can't go into people's houses and it takes a couple multiple repairman to construct these things. But they're forty three hundred dollars and What what do you think about that so? I don't have a treadmill in my home. I have never been interested in having a treadmill in my home so I I can't say I have a good sense of what a reasonable price for a treadmill. Is You know why that is. I prefer running outdoors. 'cause it's yeah you're from Maine. So the the worst weather that northern Virginia has to offer. You is like kind of a joke to you. Know to your makeup right. I mean I'm not a big fan of running in driving rain but yeah I'll run twelve months out of the year. Sure yeah and weaker people than yourself. Less hardy people from America really Are are willing to spend apparently forty three hundred dollars on a treadmill or will according to Peleton when they're able to bring these people these devices into people's homes and construct them in the meantime the twenty to twenty five hundred dollar bikes Are going like hotcakes. there's a panic buying. Apparently you know according to I think the New York Times of of these New New York Times readership probably intersex fairly well with Palestinians subscribers so They've had the largest class in their history. Twenty three thousand people In one class And just all the numbers up and down. Look Great and At the moment not that they want to rub it in but the nobody's really rubbing it in when they're having a very good quarter right now. They're couching their enthusiasm for results in in more muted terms than that. But they're having the last laugh over everybody who is trying to dance upon their graves for their Christmas ads. They certainly are. And it's not hard for me to imagine that businesses start to get involved with Peleton and by that I mean if we are going to. We're going to see a shift in businesses where businesses conducted. I don't know about you. I'm already hearing from friends of mine. Who Work in Manhattan and there in situations where a fifty thousand square feet of office space in downtown Manhattan and. Now they're saying well. We don't think we're going to need this anymore. And instead we're just GONNA find a couple of smaller footprint places out in the suburbs instead of fifty thousand square feet. We're going to need about ten thousand square feet. We're going to shift how we spend money as a business. We're going to be spending less on office space but we want to make sure our employees are happy and so instead of subsidizing their commute. We're going to subsidize their Home Office. And it wouldn't shock me at all in the next six months start hearing about businesses that are using. Peleton as a way to recruit people could be could be. You should Do Pr for them. I think they're doing fine. Npr FOR THEM BILL Mark. Thanks for being
Farmers are Swimming in Milk, but Can't Get it to Needy Food Banks
"Spilled milk. It has a whole new meaning. These days with restaurants schools and universities closed. Dairy farmers are swimming in millions of gallons of milk. They can no longer sell at the same time. Millions more Americans are hungry. Food banks across the country are seeing dramatic. Spikes in demand is unemployment swells. But they don't have enough food one of the products in short supply. You got it milk. Here's what the mismatch looks like spring the time of year when cows produce the most milk so they have more milk than usual and much less access to their regular customers and even though farmers are donating some milk food banks according to the New York Times they're still dumping about one and a half million gallons daily that's because farmers have been limited in their ability to give away enough milk to prevent the enormous waste time set but couldn't they just give away more milk. The short answer is no and the reason is two pronged for one. Food Banks. Don't have enough refrigerators or volunteers to handle too much milk at once. The other reason is that the cost of transporting and distributing milk is just too high for many farmers produce. Growers and cattle ranchers are having similar problems according to the New York Times not since the Great Depression has so much fresh food been destroyed but these are just the latest struggles facing the dairy industry as we reported in previous episodes. Dairy farmers were in trouble before Kobe. Nineteen in part because Americans. Just don't love cow's milk like we used to instead. We're increasingly turning to alternatives. Soy Almond Banana. Milk are changing. Tastes have real consequences. Just last November. The country's largest dairy supplier dean foods filed for bankruptcy now revenues. A fallen by half again for many dairy farmers. It's a distressing break in the supply chain farmers who can't sell enough milk are suffering and so are millions of people who don't have enough to eat. According to the nation's largest chain of food banks feeding America in normal times about thirty seven million Americans are considered to be food insecure. Now another seventeen million people recently unemployed also need help to avoid hunger at least eleven million of the hungrier children. According to the nonprofit it took several weeks but at least two big grocers are stepping in to help fix the supply chain mismatch last month. Publics began buying excess produce in milk and donating it to feeding America in. Its first two weeks. Public says it purchased and donated one hundred thousand gallons of milk and a million pounds of produce. The LAKELAND Florida grocery chain plans to continue the initiative released several weeks. According to CBS News public efforts are regional so far. The grocer is buying milk from dairy farmers. In the southeast and vegetables from Florida Growers Public's also donated two million dollars to feeding America. According to a statement Kroger America's largest grocery chain soon followed suit. On April Thirtieth Kroger said it would purchase two hundred thousand gallons of surplus milk and donate to feeding America and community food banks. Some might say both grocers can well afford to help in a normal year. Kroger's revenues are well above one hundred billion dollars with everyone. At Home Kroger's sales have surged. Revenues grew thirty percent in March. According to the Texas Observer Kroger's stock is currently close to its fifty two week high public to has been doing well with twenty nineteen sales of thirty eight billion dollars. The company says it sales grew this quarter by about sixteen percent over the same period a year ago with about two thirds of those sales due to all the home cooking. Americans are doing right now. The scale of America's milk problem for both farmers and the unemployed is so massive that the efforts to businesses alone are far from enough. That's something the federal government recently recognized. The Department of Agriculture will begin spending three hundred million dollars a month to buy surplus milk produce and meat from distributors and ship it to food banks. According to The New York Times some states to are getting in on the action for example New York is trying to help its own farmers deal with its huge pools of excess milk. It plans to give food banks twenty five million dollars to purchase products made from the milk. It's also working with food processors like Shabani Hood and Cabot to help them. Turn that milk into yogurt. Cheese and butter. The newspaper reported the fact that Kroger and Publix are redistributing surplus milk to food. Banks may be laudable but the quantities of no faith committed to purchase now to a drop in the bucket victims white question now is whether other businesses step up to help farmers and the hungry

Take Eliza people scream and shout when a player signs for three hundred million dollars. But when the dodgers trade for north of two billion or the Marlins trade for north of a billion. Nobody says anything is like big big bat America's supposed to make all the economics.

Does. He have a point here. He's got a point that certainly the player should benefit in the growth of major league baseball, all professional sports. But do they gotta get these three hundred million dollar contract. I don't know. They should it's always this dissension between ownership and labor and many many facets of the interactions and win a team sales or who. Wow. Good for them. When a player gets cast in for a certain amount. What we always. Had that I think is in part the general public. Feels more connected to the labor because that's their life. And so they look at the players like how dare you get what I deserve or I should be a part of. But ownership just seems distant from that and distant from a lot of the issues and damning Chicago, I'm gonna keep your short if the owners and the team makes a lot of money, and they're growing whoever's helping that Hello she'll get paid money as well.

So how far can they go on a payroll? I don't think they're gonna go up to three hundred million dollars because the tax on that would be astronomical. I mean, it'd be like a seventy five million dollar luxury tax in addition to the three hundred million dollar salary that they would pay out the players. So now, you have to three seventy five that leaves you seventy five million dollars in terms of like gross. Prophet. They'd be foolish to try to operate like that because the debt service on that team. There's also other bills. I mean, they have several hundred front office employees travel. There's every people.

How do you sell that to your fans saying we we're gonna take third starter? Move him to a team for prospects in what team wants report solo knowing the only had them for one year. How do you exactly do you shop him? Right. That's adding that that makes perfect sense to me. Why would you want to you know, you're going to get something averick forsillo? That's not going to be an ace. And then you're gonna have to pay him a ton of money. So it's I wouldn't say it's particularly attractive piece mean is a solid picture. But he's a really good center. Who's he gonna put over the top? I mean, if he's your third snack any good. But you're going to read rental what team needs a third starter. And what do you get from that team to get prospects? Now now now you're in a situation where you're going to be looked at as a seller. And I think that's how the Yankees and cubs been able to kind of reinvent themselves. 'cause I'm never I'm not always opposed to trading the established star. Will you think on the back nine for prospects? Because then you could go into star though. No, he's not even a start. And he is on the back nine, right? I mean, yeah, he's thirty pitched a lot of innings, which I think shows that he's durable. You can count on them. But you can take that player if you could flip him for prospects. Then you could take those prospects and flip them for someone else. You know, maybe look into Corey kluber, whoever that may be, but it's. Going to have to happen quickly because I'm sure the Indians want to wrap up moving on from kluber and Bauer at some point because there are more attractive pitchers than wreck Portillo far more. If you're a contending team who do you want reports for one year twenty plus million dollars or Corey kluber? You still have cost control on the him for three years, and he's just a better making less money and making less money that that's simple as can be. That's that's so easy. I loom Loney. Who I really respect his thoughts. He said imagine trading Zander Bogart's in a tweet imagine draining Zander Bogart's because you extended yourself so much in bringing back a volatile. You can't even be dependent on the take the ball every fifth. Yeah. Right. He that's a that's a great point tell me against signing. Nate was a move. They had to make. I completely agree there. If you have to trade Zander Bogart's because you brought back Mason, a volley, then you are really mismanaging your team, unless you're thinking, the one player, you're going trade as Paulo and that you're going to explore extending Zander Bogart's. I have no problem. But I'm going off this theory in scenario where they train Bogart's because they resigned of all the trading forsillo. I get at this point you bring back of all these are you doing a pitcher for pitcher swap, essentially. But if you get rid of Santa Bogart's who I think is one of the cornerstone pieces of its tab -solutely is because. You can't afford to resign him after bringing in a evolved for seventeen million a year. Then you shouldn't have brought back. Nathan evolve that's ass backwards. That's like, you know, buying the nice living room set and neglecting the foundation on a home. So yeah, I think that's what that Bob Nightingale believe in that is the Red Sox deny that because they're going to deny that because you know, if they're making those moves what happens Dombrowski who's all about trying to win a championship for the next year. But also when it implodes implodes badly did Miami. But of course, they didn't have the deep pockets that this ownersh right has and it's not a market that you're going to all of a sudden sell sell sell. You don't have to make some lateral moves. And that's where I think Portillo comes in. If it comes on a poor solo Bogart's. I'm trading port sallow because you've got a volley to step in Asia third starter you start exploring what you're gonna do with Chris sale. And boy, you'd better be sure about Chris sales health. If you're going to give him a six seven year contract at two hundred million dollars. And then what do you do with the rest of your rotate? Now of all these steps in Asia third starter Eduardo Rodriguez says he started can you really count on him. Stephen right now, Brian Johnson. Or are you just talk together? You know, someone maybe you you try to find someone on one year make good deal. Those seem to happen often. You could you could. Trade for somebody who's on the last year of their contract to if I mean, but then you're sort of making that's very lateral move. Because you, of course, L, but to me the biggest takeaway from this is exactly what Lewis saying is. If the Red Sox are really looking at trading Zander Bogart's because they're strapped for money now that they brought back of all the when they're the dumbest run team in baseball. That's that's you have no one else to take over place. You overpay a little bit for a third or fourth starter. And you get rid of your chart starting shortstop at twenty six year old shorts on fifteen years to find right since Nomar Garciaparra that's been a black hole. I mean, you were able to win championships without a great shortstop. But now you have a great shortstop and you want to World Series championship. And you want to keep him because Bogart's in arbitration will probably make about twelve million dollars this year. Then he's a free agent at the end of the year to give him the money. I mean, it took them so long to find that position Scott Boras. Right. So that's another issue going forward. And boy. Likes his players to test the market. So, but I'm saying given the money once he gets the market just I bring back Bogart's and bring bad bets, those I've you those two guys foundational pieces getting you've got JD Martinez under cost control for one more year, then he can opt out after twenty nine hundred and the other players that I think you've Macy move. This. Jackie Bradley, jR, who becomes a free agent after twenty twenty in an arbitration will probably make eight million dollars his mind. If that happens, you look you want to bring the whole gang back. Right. You do. But there's going to be players that you have to move. Now. Do you move? Jackie Bradley, jR, that team that traits him knows. They have them for two years under cost control. And maybe you get prospects for Jackie Bradley, jR or some bullpen help. And then you flip that around for something else becomes like fantasy baseball where three teams are getting involved in one trade because I know that the Nightingale tweet and everything, but if you listen to the umbrella skin courts, could you believed in Brazzi court downplaying that they even want to move any of these guys did not looking to move any of these guys. The listen like if you if the Yankees or whatever team wants to come and say, we'll give you this guy for that. For vogue got. Listen, but they're saying right now, they're not looking to shop any of these guys. Right. And then they have to in the end if they can't afford to pay them. But right now this year. No, they're not looking to shop them in Dombrowski said yesterday about the bullpen that they may not let anybody looking to spend any money in the bullpen because he's happy with the bullpen ES. So braziers going to be a closer Barnes will be pitching the seventh or eighth anywhere is out for jet. Yeah. Harare's gonna not gonna sign someone like that. I mean, one name that we've heard is Adam out of out of Colorado who claims he would with Babe Ruth, right? Every time he faced them with the baby is dead. I mean, let's not pick on does. He have a point when Wendy spat on his tombstone, you'll probably like this guy that was his those. Jalen ramsey. Octave resumes. Talking about like the pitching right now against Babe Ruth like hitting back when he was a powerhouse because the pitching, obviously, a lot better. Yeah. But they were pretty hard back then. But by just wonder if that's what he's saying. Like I can with them because he wasn't facing the pitchers of today's caliber back then. I don't know what he's saying. Well, you didn't face them. Every time you got up at the start is back. Then could bring it in the nineties. It's not like throwing Valdis one hundred and two miles an hour. Yeah. Yeah. I don't buy any of those. I'm just I just wonder if that's his thought process Williams sang at Williams said this. He said, look, I get a lot of home runs off a lot of tired pitchers because you didn't have the expert pitchers that you have now. I mean, I brought this story of Barry Bonds would face the starter twice. The third time. The lefty specialist every team in the National League West had a lefty specialist to face bonds in the sixth or seventh inning or whatever. And then you're facing a closer. So you you're going to face three different pitchers. Every time you play with all different arm angles and different stuff. Ted williams. The pitchers just went nine back then so they'd be out there with nothing left in the eighth or ninth inning. And you could hit some home runs off a dead arm pitchers. Absolutely. Who do you believe do you believe Nightingale or Dombrowski is a very respected reporter don't think he'd this..

"On Rick Portillo and rivals insists also are willing to talk about Zander Bogart's and Jackie Bradley, jR. So this kind of goes back to a couple of things Nathan of all these signed last week four years seventeen million dollars a year. I'm happy with that probably three million dollars more than you should pay him. But now is that going to impact resigning Zander Bogart's reciting, Rick Portillo, I think the odds may not would have to be poor. Oh, right. Because you would think vaulter pitcher pitcher and evolve can to your third starter. Right. Right. And then in the possession, you helping you see what happens because seventeen million years generally, your third or fourth starter. So we've gone through these numbers before we know. David price is going to make thirty one million dollars next year. Chris sale is going to be right there. If the Red Sox decide to resign him poor shallow would be in the low twenty s he's a free agent after twenty nineteen. And then of all the seventeen million dollars is your Ford starter? One hundred million dollars for Europe top four starters. That means you get twenty one other players to squeeze in at about one hundred and thirty five million dollars because they don't want to go over to thirty five because they're going to get hit. They've been hit with the luxury tax of ten and a half million dollars. And they're also gonna lose not the draft choice in the first round. But it's gonna move down. Ten slots, and look we know that the Red Sox print money, but I think there's a certain limit that they're going to spend kind of went through the numbers also on what they have as far as gross revenue in two thousand seventeen that grows four hundred and fifty three million dollars. So how far can they go on a payroll? I don't think they're gonna go up to three hundred million dollars 'cause the tax on that would be astronomical. I mean, there'd be like a seventy five million dollar luxury tax in addition to the three hundred million dollar salary that they would pay out the players. So now you have to three. Seventy-five that leads you seventy five million dollars in terms of gross profit buffoonish to try to operate like that because the debt service on that team. There's also other bills. I mean, they have several hundred front office employees travel. There's every people. Payroll is more than the team. Obviously that's the bulk of it because the average player on the Red Sox makes, you know, eight nine million dollars a year. So so what do you do with that? Do you do now? Explore trading. Rick portillo. He's a free agent at the end of the year. And what exactly do you get for a pitcher going into his last year free agency, you try to baby Bill to the future and trade him for prospects? How do you sell that to your fans saying we we're gonna take our third starter move him to a team for prospects? And what team wants wreck Portillo knowing the only had them for one year. How do you exactly do you? Shop him. Right. That's I mean that that makes perfect sense to me. Why would you want to you know, you're going to get something? Rick forsillo, that's not going to be an ace. And then you're gonna have to pay him a ton of money. So it's I wouldn't say a particularly attractive piece. I mean, he's a solid picture. But he's a really good. Who's he gonna put over the top? I mean if he's your third snack getting good. Yeah. But you're going to regimental what team needs a third started. And what do you get from that team, you get prospects? Now. Now, you're in a situation where you're going to be looked at as a seller. And I think that's how the Yankees and cubs have been able to kind of reinvent themselves because I'm never I'm not always opposed to trading. The established star will you thinks on the back nine for prospects. Because then you can star though. No, he's not even a start. And he is on the back nine, right?

Then you shouldn't have brought back Nathan evolve. That's asked backwards. That's like, you know, buying the nice living room set and neglecting the foundation on a home.
