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

Military Role Widens in Pandemic Response
"Do you see the military on a path to contain the outbreak in its ranks well sort of two parts of this one is what are they doing to protect their own personnel and they're I think they're they're they're doing it immediately good job I mean they have the enormous advantage that they have a younger healthier population as we know the Firestone you know tends to target less healthy older people it gives them an advantage shows the outbreak of the Roosevelt that got out of control but again you know we got one one sailor die and I think at this point so twenty percent that is the main factor biting if there was a huge challenge here for everybody I think they are they're doing okay on that and learning as they go the big challenge for me is using the defense production act and DOT's unique talent when it comes to production distribution and logistics the bill but we need to build in there I don't think our federal government has done what he could do it nationally on P. P. and now on the critical shortages existing supplies we get to that testing regime just about everybody says we need without build more stuff than we not responded I think that the federal government was fast enough to meet that responsibility let's talk about what that stuff is personal protective equipment you alluded to there and of course there's test kits there are ventilators which have been in short supply in some places but it's interesting when we asked the secretary asked for a few weeks ago about that about you know mobilizing defense industries in particular he said that's not really that's not really our job it's not really that kind of industry this is a presidential authority that he would use on other kinds of industries but not necessarily something that defense department would concern itself with yeah mark and I've had that conversation a number of times and and I well I I disagree with him the following sentences initial matter yes this is supposed to be FEMA and HHS that are taking the lead but just like with the field hospital the gun bill which would done largely by the army corps of engineers DHS and FEMA made the request into your T. took the lead because they have the capability and that is my strong belief is that the defense department of the department of like three hundred million dollars and procurement a year nobody in the federal government comes close they are the ones with the skill set to tell manufacturers we need ten million swaps we're gonna we're gonna figure out a way to make you build them we need a million caskets same thing so I think the DOD both in terms of logistics and production should be much better used by the federal government we get a dusting capacity we let's talk about testing capacity for the military before I let you go because we just heard that they are about a quarter of the level that they want to be by the end of may they want sixty thousand tests per day just for the military what's holding that up well the same thing and that was a big part of the argument I had with the secretary was okay yeah forget about the country for the moment DOT said two million employees helpless contractors that they depend on still protesting capacity for them and I think the fact that they're not there even in that critical he shows you the lack of a capacity that
Under Fire, Shake Shack Returns $10 Million in Small Business Funds
"Big news yesterday. Burger chains shake shack is returning. It's ten million dollars. Pp loan that people of course is short for the payment protection program. That's part of the Federal Government's cares act. It was touted as a bailout for small business. The low interest loans forgivable if at least three quarters of the money is used to keep workers on payroll but a number of large publicly traded companies including certain shake shack managed to get multimillion dollar loans before the program ran out of funds last Thursday that angered millions of owners of considerably smaller businesses. Who were locked out of the program? Here's what happened. The PPI was intended for businesses with fewer than five hundred employees. The Small Business Administration's definition of small business but it included a clause that allowed companies with multiple locations to apply as long as there were fewer than five hundred workers at each location shake. Shack is public company. Employing eight thousand people across close to two hundred stores in the US. It's valued at one point. Seven billion dollars according to Forbes but fewer than forty five people make burgers and fries at any single shake shack store that's far below the PP's single location cab. When the program was announced the company had already furloughed or laid off about one thousand workers so shake shack applied for the P and it turns out. They weren't the only multimillion dollar company to do so other applicants included. Ruth's Chris Steak House. Three hundred million dollar cruise line and four hundred million dollar data storage company and that's created a big problem for small businesses. According to Bloomberg two percent of the firms approved for loans got thirty percent of the total funds Solo preneurs and small businesses faced with the prospect of going out of business permanently. Were furious to learn that more than a dozen public companies with revenues greater than one hundred million dollars had received portions of the funds leaving little for them according to Bloomberg four inches. Ruth's Chris employs almost six thousand people. It's sales topped half a billion dollars. Last year. It received twenty million dollars in P. Money. Four hundred million dollar pot belly corporation chain of sandwich shops also employs six thousand people. It received million dollars in the low interest funds. Bloomberg's Ed but shake shack has since apologized for applying for the loan in an open letter. Sunday. Owner Danny Meyer and CEO Randy. Rudy said the. Pp's initial guidance was confusing. They wrote quoting here. The best chance of keeping our teams working off the unemployment line and hiring back are furloughed laid off employees would be to apply now in hoped things would be clarified in time close quote. They were losing more than a million dollars a week. At that time last week the company was able to sell equity on the public market and raise one hundred fifty million dollars as a result Meyer. Garate decided to return their peop- funds quoting again so that those restaurants who need it most can get it now. They said in a statement. They acknowledged their good fortune and having access to other funds and said until every restaurant that needs it has had the same opportunity to receive assistance. We're returning hours. Well responses ran the gamut from laudatory to highly critical some observers praised owner Danny Meyer is noble and pledged to be lifelong customers others were livid saying restaurant. Chains should never have applied in the first place. It'll take time to see whether public opinion will tilt toward shake shack or against it. However the company's actions received a hearty congratulations in one place by Monday. Evening it stock was up seven percent. In contrast. Ruth's Chris fell seven percent. Potbellies was also down by yesterday afternoon. No other major restaurant chains or public companies had stepped forward to follow shake shacks lead

"three hundred million dollars" Discussed on Boston Herald Radio
"Gonna be right there. If the Red Sox decide to resign him poor Selo would be in the low twenty s he's a free agent after twenty nineteen and then of all the at seventeen million dollars is your Ford starter one hundred million dollars for your 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 wanna go over thirty five because they're going to get hit. They've been hit what 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 gonna 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 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. 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 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 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.

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.

"The day that story is completely insane yeah he's making three hundred million dollars over over ten years or so that's leaving nike what a bold move but it's it's not it's not just that it's a bold move from its at someone decided that a guy at the end of his career is worth that much i mean roger federer at this point he basically just pops up for like one or two instances of troop prominence for us over here anytime something's about to happen so you have to imagine he's almost worth just as much newly retired or slightly done even if he's not actually playing tennis anymore right three hundred million over ten years or the terms three hundred million over ten that's i mean that's that's what you pay someone in his prime right that's who's playing right now and winning tournaments majors right now they're paying him for stuff that he did i guess it wasn't that long ago they love you won his last grand slam but still i mean grand slam tournament but it's it's a lot i feel like if roger federer were to play i mean how old is roger federer how many years do we think he has a playing with you forgetting championship level tennis i mean how much of that contract do we actually think he's going to be a player through is going to be thirty seven in august so i mean if he plays if he played half of this contract and word a be done playing when he was forty two i feel like based on where we're at now roger federer would still be one of the biggest names in tennis not playing tennis what here's a question right so who's gonna fall off first brady federer lebron not not obviously i from here on out but just in terms of the age the age i would say if we're going to say fall off from their current pace i would have to say it's got to be lebron right just because the highs have been so freakishly high and it's a sport where you're at lettuce is is such a especially for him is such a hallmark of his ability like i feel like it has to be him just by the nature of the sport and his game but brady's already forty though right so everything that brady does from here on out it's like he's already hit that mile mark so if he retires next year fortyone lebron's great but that's still means ron has to go another seven years seven years to just match brady's line it is pretty insane basically arguing four tom brady and this one right that what he's done at this age is already something that i mean he didn't start off his eighteen like lebron did so you've got always kind of factor in the year total end to this age age at some point does become impressive because being able to do this at the professional level i think vince carter just being able to be out there amongst this group at that advanced age is a lot because we all know the signs of aging just being normal human beings not playing professional sports and it's a for many of these elite athletes the problem isn't playing the problem is the next game right there's a lot of for retired nba players right now can give you fifteen good minutes on nba court right they won't be what they were but they won't look out of place the problem is tomorrow morning they're going to be feeling like absolute trash and getting ready for the next game unless game in the grueling a marathon is the regular season is what takes a win out of but i'm i'm getting updates from our soccer expert michael ryan release might you have some some information for us so that other story from the sports update yeah john obi mckell the captain of nigeria a horrible story where he revealed that his father was kidnapped just before he played in the world cup and i obviously i'm a chelsea fan john obi michaela used to play for chelsea and i called this is not the first time this is happened to him.
