Biden Expresses Support for Amazon Union Vote in Alabama: ‘Make Your Voice Heard’
"Never heard any full-throated support From from barack obama when it came to unions in recall that when democrats took the senate in two thousand eight one of the things that they had promised was a vote in a passage of card check which was basically simplified the process in which people could vote for a union that they could simply just put in a request and if enough members of a workplace put in a request for a union. You'd get a union. You wouldn't have an extended period of time which invariably house employers to deploy a in the case of amazon. Let's say just take for example In this Attempt to unionize in alabama twenty five million dollars and you talk the other day about some of the things they're doing. they literally got the city. Because union organizers can't talk to their fellow workers at the amazon facility whereas amazon can basically spend all day. Say hey today. Your job is just learning how bad unions are with these mythical. With these these mac. Captive audience meetings exactly and the in amazon. Actually got the city in bessemer alabama to change the timing telling us about this at the stop lights. So that unionized organizers could not go and actually help unionized or organized there. So there's a lot of things that the administration can do in terms of national labor relations board and whatnot and there's been some good moves by the biden administration that regard but one of the things that obama did was to use the bully pulpit and one of the things that he said that he appreciated about ronald reagan. Was that very thing. We just never saw him do it. Well joe biden doing now. Joe biden can do more. He could go down to alabama and actually like campaign for the union. But this is pretty. This is pretty important stuff. Because you know the union is going to use this clip and it's going to help yours joe biden. We're gonna play the full two minutes because it's actually pretty big deal. I've long said america wasn't built by wall street was built by the middle class and unions built the middle class. Unions put power in the hands of workers they level the playing field. They give you a stronger voice for your health. Your safety higher wages protection. Some racial discrimination sexual harassment unions lift up workers both union and nonunion and especially black and brown workers. I've made it clear. Made it clear when i was running. But my administration's policy would be to support unions organization organizing and the right to collectively bargain. I'm keeping that promise. You should all remember. The national labor relations act. Didn't just say the unions are allowed to exist. It said the union. we should encourage unions. So let me be really clear. It's not up to me to decide whether anyone join a union but let me be even more clear. It's not up to an employer. Decide that either. The choice to join a union is up to the workers. Full stop full. Stop today and over the next few days and weeks. Workers in alabama and all across america are voting on whether to organize a union in their workplace. This is vitally important. A vitally important choice. As america grapples with the deadly pandemic the economic crisis in the reckoning on race what it reveals the deep disparities still exist in our country and there should be no intimidation no coercion. No anti union propaganda. No supervisor no supervisors you confront employees about the union preferences. You know every worker should have a free and fair choice to join a union. The law guarantees that choice. And it's your right. Not that of employer at your right. No employer can take that right away so make your voice heard. God bless you all. May god protect workers and their families who are trying to figure out how to make it make it fairly thank
Fresh update on "twenty five million dollar" discussed on The Hull Show ? 1310 KFKA
"To and the day after the season ended john. Elway said nope. We're picking it up and completely just kabosh. Any ideas of the broncos moved on from From bonn last year now with payton. There's no emotion. Attached von miller was john always first draft pick number two overall helped him deliver The super bowl fifty was the biggest reason for that as the mvp award show. George payton has no emotional attachment with that. So i think That that george isn't going to go to the extent that that elway was zak. Stevens joining us from denver. Broncos and zack as we approach free agency here. How aggressive are the broncos going to be. Obviously we know they have to take care of their own situations. I with guys like justin simmons and we'll see what happens with lindsay as we just talked about von schober. Here's a lot of names. But how aggressive do you see them getting outside of their own camp knowing that there's still this maybe possibility of trading the farm away to get to shawn watson because you want to be careful you don't wanna get too many contracts in here and then you you. Maybe the trade could happen and now you're in trouble. Yeah and that's what's so tough about this shawn watson scenario or if russell wilson becomes available one of those guys it really makes you. Okay do you. Do you plan for that. Potentially opening up you move on from that and try to move things in the future but brady icy this broncos free agency really being about keeping their own gut they have forty five million dollars in cap space right now after moving on from durell casey last week which put them in the top five teams for having the most caps entering free agency. But when you look at it if they pay justin simmons fifteen million dollars a year if they pay shelby harris around ten million dollars year. Boom it now. Twenty five of your forty five million has gone. He got about ten million dollars for the draft class. There's thirty five million and then you can use that ten million dollars to you. Know put put a tender a second round tender on. Tim patrick a second round tender on phillip lindsay. And then there you go. There's your team we haven't even talked about signing any other free agents. Now if you move on from von miller you up eighteen million dollars in cap space. That's the money that you would use in free agency to go get maybe one big name a fifteen million dollar player or you can go out and get a couple of five ten million dollar players there so this free agency. While the broncos do have a lot of money i expected to be spent internally zach so obviously number one priorities justin simmons right yup get him taken care of. That's number one. What's the number two is it. Is it getting a guy like shelby. Harris locked up getting von miller dealt with one way or the other. What's what's the second priority for the broncos. I really think that's second. Priority is shelby harris after moving on from drill. Casey last week. You have one true defensive end on your roster and that's draymond jones and you feel very comfortable and draymond jones. It seems like he is very much going to be a starter for you team. But then you have mike pursell It the nose tackle. Who's coming off a pretty significant injury especially for a guy who's thirty years old right now. That's something that you can't overlook the broncos are going to count on him With the contract they gave him master. They're counting on him to be a starter. But you kinda have to have another option there. They do like mattel mctelvin. Gene there At who was a rookie last year. But you gotta add a another great player on that defensive line and shelby harris the guy. That's already in your backyard right there. So might as well keep him and then expect them to make another move on the defensive line whether it's the draft or whether it's free agency but i would expect a good investment in shelby in. That's why he's the number two priority. So okay justin simmons shelby harris and i agree you. Gotta you gotta take care of those guys. I love watching both those guys play. We know justin simmons's is. I definitely big time on the priority list. How about let's go to. Let's go to your top five three four five. What's next for denver. Oh boy like you said. Von miller figuring out that because it's not necessarily keeping von around or not. It's knowing how much money you're going to have to work with a hard deadline coming up with him in less than two weeks. Actually right around. Two weeks brady deciding on what you do with him Whether you have twenty million dollars to spend in like. I said if you're going to spend money on outside guys it's going to be with bond miller's contract right there unless you're not going to get a deal worked out with justice simmons which from this list is clearly not the priority there so figuring out what to do there and then what's he's sneakily comes on. This list is figuring out kardashian. Jackson because kareem jackson has a team option. He has absolutely lived up to his his three year. Thirty three million dollar deal. He signed two years ago but brady. Are you going to pay to safeties over. Twenty five million dollars. Not only is that a lot for the safety position if you do end up paying. Justin simmons twenty five million dollars or fifteen million dollars a year but also this is if you go back and historically look vic fangio has taken bad safeties and made them good. He's taking good safeties and made them great and he's taken great safeties and made them elite so this the value really may not be there if you decline kareem jackson's option. There's about ten million dollars in cap space that frees up as well silk that becomes a very tricky situation right there because you love the player kareem then this would have nothing to do with him but can especially in the capsule neighbor going to be about one hundred eighty million. Can you do that. That is going to be tough because if you keep kareem on you have the best safety duo in the nfl. But if you do pick up that option and then hope to sign for a deal what have you. I mean that does put you in a tough spot as you start looking at other contracts and other big time moves going forward. You're right that'd be a lot Shelling out for one position essentially. Yeah exactly and then let's round out the top five and of course quarterback has to be in there and if they have their eyes set on a big time quarterback then of course. That's the number one priority. But just where the broncos are right now thinking about. You know potential veteran hedge. If that's the route if they're gonna go after one free agency. It's probably going to be a hedge and so of course that's in your top. Five is well interest. Justin simmons shelby harris von miller. Kareem jackson course the quarterback position outside of big time guys like shawn watson russell. Wilson should be interesting man. How about these other guys on the list. Not i agree. I wouldn't consider these guys your top five priorities but priorities. Nonetheless phillip lindsay. Tim patrick another big name on that list what do you. What do you see the future for both of those guys. Yeah both very interesting. Because you're not going to let tim patrick. Just walk right now. You would get nothing for him And he he is way to valuable to just let him leave. But is a guy that you have in your long term plan. The broncos of said absolutely not by the move. They've made And so are you really gonna pay a guy A lot of money to stick around for for the long term when he's not in those plants. No you're not so what you're gonna do is you're going to throw a second round tender on 'em it's gonna cost you three and a half million dollars this year and he's going to be a fantastic fantastic depth feet. He's also going to see the field because he's a very good player. But you're not gonna sign him to a long term deal. Then he leaves this year he goes and gets a big deal somewhere because he can play Or you look to trade him this year for me if you can get a second if you get a day two pick for him you do that in a heartbeat But if not then you let them walk and maybe you get a third round compensatory pick next year but you can't just let him walk right now you gotta pay him that second round tender which is three and a half million and phillip lindsay holy. Cows is it. The unknown of phillip lindsay is pretty incredible You for me. what i'm doing. This is easy. I'm throwing a round tender on three and a half million dollars And then you can figure out the long term plan in a couple of months or after this year but you again you can't just lindsay walk and if you don't put a second round tender on him you're essentially letting him walk. Do you put an original around or anything like that. He will not be a denver bronco anymore. That doesn't make sense. Phillip lindsay is worth three and a half million on a one year deal. So you do that. And that's what. I expect the broncos to do as well but any long-term deals. I.

OxiContin Maker To Pay Out Billions In Civil, Criminal Penalties
"The makers of oxycontin one of the drugs blame for sending off the OPIOID crisis will plead guilty to federal criminal charges. The Justice Department announced those charges against Purdue Pharma yesterday as part of an eight billion dollar settlement NPR addiction correspondent Brian Man is with US Brian Good Morning. Steve, how's a settlement? GonNa work. Yeah. So if it's approved by a federal bankruptcy judge, Steve The purdue Pharma will admit to the three felony charges including a charge that they misled doctors about the safety of medications like Oxycontin, over time, then the company would pay out billions of dollars in civil and criminal penalties, Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general who outlined the agreement yesterday says the sackler family would also be forced to give up control of their company. Instead of being the owners of a major pharmaceutical company, they will have no stake in that company. Now that sounds like a lot but critics are pointing to the fact that Purdue Pharma was already in big trouble facing bankruptcy struggling to hold onto employees and flooded with thousands of lawsuits tied to the improper marketing of opioids, and despite all that under this deal does federal deal the sackler walk away with most of their personal fortunes intact by some estimates there worth as much as ten billion dollars because of OPIOID prophets, they'll pay a fraction of that in penalties only about two hundred, twenty, five, million dollars out of their own pockets and Steve. There are no criminal charges against them the sackler. Admit to know personal wrongdoing. Well, how do prosecutors explain the deal would include no criminal charges and the sackler not entirely but mostly giving up a pile of liabilities rather than a penalty they would really feel. Deputy. Attorney General. Rosen was asked about this yesterday and he says these penalties go as far as the government can right now holding purdue and the sackler accountable. There is no law that says if you've done something wrong, we should just simply strip somebody of all their assets in existence that's not how it works. It has to be that we are looking at specific ex wrongdoing civilly or criminally, and then having a proportionate response but a lot of people including more than two dozen state attorneys, general dozens of members of Congress advocates for people suffering from addiction. They all say, this isn't proportionate response. They say members of the sackler family played a personal role pushing the prescription opioid boom developing these illegal and deceptive marketing practices that made purdue. Pharma. So profitable the Tissue James is New York State Attorney General, and she's suing members of the. Sackler family, her team tracked hundreds of millions of dollars in opioid prophets that the sackler sent to offshore accounts. She told. NPR. This justice department deal doesn't go nearly far enough doesn't account the hundreds of thousands of deaths of millions of addictions caused by produce farmer in the sackler family all of destruction that they have caused it basically allows billionaires to keep their billions without any accounting for how much a really made James says her state probe of the sackler family will continue. Meanwhile, there's one more detailed, the settlement that sparking. Anger, it turns out purdue. Pharma doesn't actually have enough money left to pay out the billions of dollars agreed to in this settlement. So the plan is for the government to reorganize Purdue Pharma into what's known as a public benefit company that means prophets from future sales of opioids like oxycontin would be used to pay for drug treatment and rehabilitation programs around the country Greg mcneal lives in. Ohio. One of the states hit hardest by the OPIOID epidemic and he lost his son Sam to an overdose five years ago. He. Says this idea of the government getting into the OPIOID business now after it's caused so much harm. He says it just feels wrong it. It just seems ill advised having the government entered into that business. Gosh. There's something about that. That just doesn't doesn't add up at all. And I should say Steve Twenty five state attorneys general agree they signed a letter last week they send it to Attorney General William Bar arguing that this arrangement is ethically wrong and could shelter purdue Pharma and the sackler from future criminal or civil liability Brian Kennedy at least be said for the deal that there's some money here that might help people harmed by the. OPIOID. Epidemic. That will definitely that's what the Justice Department is saying. So let's take stock for a second nearly seventy two thousand people died from overdoses last year this is still ongoing. A lot of those were opioid deaths. What US attorneys say is if this deal is finalized by the bankruptcy court, it would mean extraordinary new resources for states and cities and tribal governments struggling to keep people alive. But one thing everyone agrees to here is that this problem is so big now affecting. So many Americans they say the eight billion dollars from purdue, Pharma is really just a drop in the bucket.

"Architect of Donald Trump's twenty-six election victory who wants claimed he wanted to destroy the state and bring everything crashing down was arrested on a yacht on Thursday and has since pleaded not guilty after being charged with defrauding donors in a scheme to help build the president's signature wool across the US Mexico border. As a top advisor to trump's presidential campaign who later served as White House chief strategist. Bannon. Helped articulate the America first right-wing populism and fierce opposition to immigration that have been hallmarks of trump's three and a half years in office. Dinan was among four people arrested and charged by federal prosecutors in Manhattan with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money. Laundering prosecutors accused the defendants of defrauding hundreds of thousands of dollars through a twenty, five, million dollar crowdfunding campaign cold we build the wall. Bannon used hundreds of thousands of dollars of that money to cover personal expenses according to the charges. He was freed on a five million dollar bond and was barred by Federal Magistrate Judge from traveling internationally. Bannon was arrested in Connecticut by agents from the prosecutor's office and the US Postal Inspection Service aboard a one hundred and fifty foot long yachts according to a law enforcement source trump told reporters at the White House that he feels very badly about the challenges but typically sought to distance himself from Bannon and the alleged scheme Bannon is the eighth close trump associates to be arrested or convicted of a crime former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort longtime friend and advisor Roger.

Steve Bannon's arrest has tertiary ties to video games
"Former thirty eight studios CEO curt. Schilling was involved in the build a wall pack. The thing that just led to former Donald Trump advisor, steve bannon getting arrested. This is just a weird tangentially related to video games news story that is just so strange and it also kind of goes to show that if curt schilling is involved in a company, that's probably a good reason to not invest any money. So for the. Non Video game side of the story former President Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon was arrested this morning for issues related to a crowdfunding campaign. He was involved with that was raising money to build a wall between Mexico and the United States of America. The campaign raised over twenty, five million dollars, but apparently, the money was being used for personal gain Audrey Strauss the acting us attorney for the southern district of New York said. The. Defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors capitalizing on their interest and funding a border wall to raise millions of dollars under the false pretense that all of the money would be spent on construction while repeatedly assuring donors that Brian Cole fade the founder and public face of the We build the wall would not be paid a cent. The defendants secretly schemed to pass hundreds of thousands of dollars to coalfields, which he used to fund his lavish lifestyle. That quote comes from NPR story. Linked in the show notes. So that's the main part of it but the tangentially related video games side of it comes from Edward Isaac Dove Air From the Atlantic on twitter who wrote Crisco Bosch is the General Counsel of the build the wall pack that Steve Bannon was just arrested for being involved in as chairman. The advisory board includes Eric Prince Former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo Sheriff David Clarke and former pitcher curt schilling curt schilling is predominantly known for being a pitcher in the MLB. I will always know him as the CEO of thirty eight studios, the developer that created kingdoms of Amour with investment funds from the State of Rhode Island, which he neglected to return when required, which ultimately doomed the developer and the kingdoms of Ahmir franchise though then might be making comeback soon, there's a, there's a remake rerelease on the way. It's really gross that money was being raised to build a wall which as near as I can tell is thankfully nowhere near fruition and it's totally unsurprising that it is all collapsing under the weight of its founders deciding to just try and keep the money for themselves.

Are Banks Safe?
"Month they had several plus members. Share an article with me. That was published in the Atlantic titled Becoming Bank Collapse. The subtitle was the US. Banking System could be on the cusp of calamity this time. We might not be able to save it. Article was written by Frank Partnoy. He's a law professor at UC Berkeley. That's a pretty ominous title. We WanNa look at the article as well as the state of US banks and banks around the world. Should we be worried given the pandemic is the banking system poised to collapse. I was especially interested in the article, because it came out right after I had increased my allocation to stocks and added a preferred stock et after the money for the rest of US plus model portfolios. The particular preferred stock after us by shares has about twenty six percent allocated to banks and banks are on the cusp of this calamity that does not bode well for preferred stocks. In the article, Partnoy is particularly worried about banks exposures to an esoteric security. A collateralized loan, obligation or see Elo. We Discussed Sea Ellos back in episode two six in May twenty eighteen. collateralized loan obligations are asset backed securities issued by special purpose vehicles or s peeves. The S P V purchases leveraged loans which are non investment grade bank loans that have been syndicated. A, bank will make a loan to a Non Investment Grade Company, a higher risk company and then sell that loan into the marketplace. Many of those purchasers are Clo's is over a trillion dollars of leveraged loans outstanding. and. Most are held as part of these collateralized loan obligation structures. The way it works. Is that s? Cells, debt and equity securities that comprise to see yellow. Those securities are backed or collateralized by the leveraged loans. The CEELO has multiple layers tranches that are sold separately. The debt layers are rated by credit quality, so the senior layer is triple A.. There are lower rated debt layers known as mezzanine layers, and then there's an equity layer which is unrated. The payments on the underlying leverage loans, those payments are pooled together and flow in order. The first payments go to the senior AAA layer then to the lower rated layers, and then finally to the equity layer. That is known as they waterfall. The debt tranches are over collateralized debt ACL Oh might have issued five hundred million dollars in debt securities as part of the L O that are backed by six hundred and twenty five Million Dollars Worth of leveraged loans with the Additional One, hundred, twenty, five million in loans funded from selling the equity trunch. Each Cielo about one hundred and fifty to two hundred and twenty-five loans. And because the leverage loans, themselves are floating rate notes. Their interest rates will fluctuate as short term. Interest rates change the debt tranches within a cll are also floating rate, so there's some protection if interest rates rise. Now because of this waterfall structure, the equity tranches takes the first losses, then the lower rated debt tranches, and finally if it gets to that this senior triple, a. rated debt trench suffered losses. That hasn't happened before. The SNP does a global Cielo report looking at default rates. From Nineteen ninety-six to twenty, eight eighteen overall default rates for CEELO's was zero point five percent. The worst vintage year was sea ellos issued in two thousand eight. there. The default rate was one point seven percent. There have been no defaults in CEELO's issued between two thousand, nine and two thousand eighteen. And from that one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two thousand eighteen period, there has never been a default for the triple eight trunch, and only one default for the AA trunch. Now as you know, we are in a pandemic and defaults within the High Yield Bond and leveraged loan space is increasing. Fitch estimates the twelve month default on leveraged loans is four percent, and that more than two hundred billion dollars of leveraged loans will default through year end twenty, twenty one. Adequate to a two year cumulative default rate of fifteen percent. Just because leverage loans are defaulting doesn't mean all the different tranches of a coo is experiencing a default. So a report on the wall, Street Journal from mid May that showed about ten percent of Cielo managers have been diverting cash flow away from equity investors and going to the debt tranches, which means there have been default that are starting to impact that junior equity trunch. What is different from this cycle, though is leveraged, loans are more risky and we discussed that in episode to a six. The covenants on these loans are less restrictive. The credit quality is lower. The financials are weaker and so we should expect defaults to increase. Question is will see a low default and other defaults and other loans impact banks to where we should be worried about our savings or investments that we might have in banks. In banks securities. Including their common stock and their preferred stock.

Don't @ Me: The Story Behind Twitch's $25 Million Sex Addiction Lawsuit
"So recently twitch was served a twenty five million dollar lawsuit by Guy Dealing with a severe sex addiction. Basically he believes that the hundreds of women streamers he follows, makes his sex addiction worse in. It's all twitches fault. Yeah this story is as crazy as it sounds. Let's get into it. Guys were streaming over at twitter DOT TV. Slash the score e sports, and we're adding more and more content every single week, so whether it's talkshow clouded or the rotating Friday streams follow the channel, so you know when we go live, and maybe you'll catch me winning another absurd game of chess. I one call now wait what what kind of stupid game! I. Don't honestly I don't know how the first happened. Okay? Now back to the lawsuit on June fifteenth. A guy named Eric Estherville filed twenty five million dollar lawsuit against twitch lawsuit states that s still suffers from a bunch of health issues, including OCD, depression and a severe sex addiction, and the lawsuit goes on to say that quote. Because of these maladies he heavily relies on the Internet for all of his entertainment, purposes and quote. Quote and basically he suing twitch, because he alleges that women twitch streamers make his sex addiction OCD worse quote twitches severely exacerbated his condition by displaying many sexually suggestive women, streamers through twitches, twisted programming, and neck owed making it nearly impossible for the plaintiff to use twitch without being exposed to such sexually suggestive content and quote to be clear, and this is in the lawsuit s to below follows exactly seven hundred eighty six women streamers. Zero male streamers not only does the lawsuit named twenty popular women's streamers including. And pokey, Main in-includes, pages, and pages of photos of these women as evidence as I was going through this lawsuit looking through these photos, it just felt really weird. It didn't sit right with me. One other issue that s says exacerbates his sex. Addiction is the fact that you can't choose to break down streams by gender quote. There's no way for the plaintiff to filter streams. He'd like to. To Watch based on gender, male or female. Therefore, the plaintiff has to choose a game and or category to watch with thumbnails, showing these scantily clad women alongside men of being the only streaming channels available to him and quote now in reality you could manually filter between men and women streamers, depending on who you follow, but remember according to the lawsuit Esta follows exactly seven, hundred, eighty six. Six women, streamers and zero men again, according to the lawsuit, the twenty five million dollars estabilish, asking for is to be split between him in other twitch prime turbo subscribers with the rest of the money leftover going to charities of the courts, choosing on top of the twenty five million s Davila was asking twitch permanently banned the twenty women named in the lawsuit. Okay, everything we just discussed. Discussed makes up the front half of the lawsuit. The entire back half of a lawsuit is dedicated to multiple academic papers, breaking down the history in research done on sex, addiction and listen. This is a real medical issue in this guy deserves all the help that he needs. But blaming women on twitch is probably not the answer now. If you're thinking where the hell did this come from. Actually ESTHERVILLE. Oh has history of filing these kind of over the top lawsuits. It all starts back in two thousand nine after s Davila was banned from PS end for being a troll while playing resistance fall of man online and if you didn't know. Is Basically playstations online ecosystem similar to xbox live? Here's a quote from an interview. He did with an gadget when he originally filed the lawsuit quote. I sued Sony because when they banned me, they banned my whole console, which is like a five hundred dollar waste there because I can't go online anymore, which was one of my ways of socializing so when I sued for fifty five thousand dollars that was something called punitive damages. When you're trying to penalize a company, and that's what I was trying to do. Penalize them for banning someone and quote from there. He sued Sony again. Plus Microsoft in ten does over flaws in different console designs that he purposely tried to find that in. In Two thousand ten I Japan gamespot could talk in a bunch of other gaming websites did their job in wrote about the lawsuits that Estella had filed against Sony Microsoft and Nintendo and he really didn't like that like as in he filed one giant lawsuit against thirteen different websites, because he was upset about the fact that they were writing about him. estabilish became so notorious that he was given all sorts of nicknames, the plaintiff the serial sewer. The list goes on. Also he wants sued blizzard, because apparently walking in world of warcraft took too long and in the lawsuit he tried to rope in actress, Wynona Ryder to explain the significance of alienation in Catcher in the Rye and quote. Rider, catcher in the Rye world of warcraft lack. Of and you probably won't be surprised to hear that. All eight lawsuits were either dropped by Estella himself or dismissed by the court outright now the complaint against twitch was filed on June fifteenth, while the summons was served to them on June nineteenth meaning legally now they have to respond in court, and while twitch hasn't made an official statement on this situation. It's only a matter of time before the core proceedings become public and hey, maybe this case will farther than anyone else was expected. What? He said all the haters. I'm not trying to zag just because everybody else is going in one direction, but I honestly don't understand. A lot of the complaints like people are really upset about the story, choices and things like that and it's just like. Why why are you upset that somebody told you a story that. You didn't agree with the choices like it's not your fucking story to tell. And I get that we have connections to characters, and when certain things happen. It makes you upset, but. Really. I fundamentally do not understand how people can be upset about somebody else's narrative created in Britain.

As Grocery Deliveries Soar, Startup Raises $10 Million to Unseat Giant Instacart
"As a result of COVID, nineteen instinct cart has become the Goliath of grocery delivery businesses as virus fears. Keep us out of grocery stores. We've been relying on food delivery mainly, INSTA- carts GIG workers called shoppers to keep a stocked up. This April INSTA- cart sales were five times greater than a year ago the Financial Times reported that I've popping growth hardly escaped. Investors Notice INSTA-. Cart raised another two hundred twenty five million dollars earlier this month that evaluation, approaching fourteen billion dollars. That's nearly double its valuation only eighteen months ago, perhaps needless to say instant carts thirty-three-year-old. A poor va mater is now a billionaire. But less you jump to the conclusion that Mehta can sit back and relax safe in his seat at the top of this rapidly growing industry. Thank again. A small startup called Ling is coming rich share of the grocery delivery business, though tiny compared to Insta- card investors are also taking notice last week dumpling raise six point five million dollars for a total of ten million dollars in funding so far founded in two thousand seventeen dumpling helps people create independent delivery businesses, the difference between shopping for instance card and dumpling is simple, but fundamental dumpling delivery workers own their own businesses Insta- cart workers are subcontractors paid by the shopping trip. Dumplings Co CEO's Joel. Shapiro Innate Danna make no bones about what motivated them to create dumpling. They felt sharing economy companies like Insta- card were treating workers on fairly so they created an APP that helps perspective entrepreneurs go into business for themselves to create a new business users pay a ten dollar fee for access to dumplings services and listing on the company's site where customers can search for shoppers. Bhai Zip Code. Shoppers paid dumpling a five dollar fee for each job or when they get busy enough switched to a monthly payment of thirty nine dollars. Dumplings model is not unlike Amazon's two year old partner delivery service, which also helps people start their own businesses in their case exclusively delivering Amazon packages supporters of the independent model say self employment in the delivery industry offers a number of advantages including higher revenue and insulation from the anti-god worker legislation that's cropping up all over the country so far fueled in part by the pandemic. The models seems to be working dumplings. Founders say customers or ordering twenty times more groceries than they were before in nineteen, and the company says it has helped. Two thousand people start their own delivery companies people. People like Kelly Vilchez in Orange County California. Vilchez operates under the business name shop girl. Oh, see. She told the L. A. Times that she's earning three to five thousand dollars a month. She's clearly a dumpling success story. According to the shop girl OC facebook page villages is featured in dumplings advertising campaign in contrast Insta- card has been plagued by shopper complaints since the onset of the coronavirus in March and April, many walked off the job, demanding better protection against Covid, nineteen higher tips and sick leave the Winston card initially claimed the strikes made no impact. Courts reporter Michelle Chang Rights. That's debatable on June. Fifteenth the Seattle. City Council voted unanimously to require that. GIG were companies like Insta- card and Grub pay their workers an extra two dollars and fifty cents hazard pay per order. That requirement is intended to last through the end of the COVID nineteen civil emergency declared by Seattle's mayor. Insecure has vowed a legal fight. Similar legislation is pending in Philadelphia New York and San Francisco Chang writes. It is these sorts of ills shortages of personal protective equipment, low pay and lack of sickly. The dumpling claimed self employment solves, but entrepreneurship isn't easy dumpling delivery workers have to do their own marketing and find their own customers, and they're on the hook. If grocery buyers failed to pay, which dumpling says is rare, that said any platform that helps the millions of unemployed grow their own wealth. Is appealing to investors, and it's interesting to note that dumplings mission says nothing specifically about the grocery business rather they say. We WanNA. Make dumpling trusted partner that helps anyone launched running grow their own service based business. Sure dumpling starting groceries. Be Questions. Where will they go next?

The best news for President Trump Lawler, wrapped up his work without issuing any new indictments that made for happy Friday night and mar-a-lago. What is it known yet? How did Muller reach that decision? What else did he discover about contacts between the Trump team in Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign does he believe that President Trump obstructed Justice by interfering with the investigation some answers, maybe coming as soon as today attorney general William bar has the entire Muller report. He's been reviewing it since Friday afternoon, and he's going to decide how much lawler's report congress and all of us get to see an investigation started by Muller have been farmed out to at least four other US attorneys or analyze all the fall at this morning. We start with our correspondents in the front lines in this case giancarl at the White House. Mary Bruce on Capitol Hill, Pierre Thomas, just farm NPR. What's been? Happening there since bar got the report Friday afternoon has been studying Muller's confidential report in providing a summary working on providing a summary of his key. Finding team was in the office all day yesterday. Joined by deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein who appointed a special counsel. And who's been overseeing the investigation every step of the way sources say he'll be back in some time this morning to continue that work, and the hope is that he'll finish the summary of key findings and then release it to congress and the press later today, that's the hope at least, but no guaranteed. Appears there any idea yet. We have any good sense of how long the Muller report is and how long bar summary is going to be shorts right now. It's a state secret. I've never seen anything. Like it. A source yesterday told me that it was quote quite comprehensive, but refused to give the exact number pages. I think bars competing with his old friend Muller to see who can keep the best decrease. George Muller was pretty good at that. So far, he's also promised to consult with Robert Muller about what more can be released to congress later. We're waiting on the submarine, George which should answer. The question is whether collusion between the Russians. And the Trump campaign and did the president obstruct Justice. And after that as you said bar, Rosenstein and Muller will continue to go through the report to see what if anything can be released to congress and to the press. But right now, that's where the fight is going to be because congress is going to want every word every syllable George bar. Understandably is not comment on the investigation since becoming attorney general Lino bit before he took office. He was quite skeptical of the obstruction of Justice charges. He absolutely was skeptical of prosecutors overreaching, given his belief that the president has a thorny as chief executive to fire people in his administration. He made clear he was narrowly talking about the firing of James Comey based on what was known publicly he later clarified in his confirmation hearing that any decision had to be guided by the evidence, and he acknowledged he did not have all the facts when he wrote the opinion in the case, George, okay know, you're gonna be on standby all day.

Have a great day from the president a sunny tweet from President Trump. What's been going on behind the scenes, George prepared for the worst? The president's top aides traveled with him tomorrow Lago. Now, the president appears relax one top aide said he is in a great mood. There is a clear sense of relief that there are no more indictments George for all of the speculation after twenty two months of investigation. Not a single member of the Trump family was charged with everything. But while there is that sense of relief is a cautious sense of relief. The president's legal team is keenly aware that there still may be damaging information in the Muller report damaging information, particularly on the question of obstruction of Justice. We knew he was informed early. Thirteen was informed of no indictment some time ago. What more do they know about the report if anything well as of this morning? I am told the president was legal team. Still have not been briefed on the Muller report. In fact, the president appears to be uncertain. Of how Bill bar will handle the next steps. But what they are preparing for George is a big fight over how much of the full report is released to the public and not just the report Muller compiled more than a million pages of documents over the course of his investigation and hundreds of hours of interviews with some of the president's top advisers, congress is going to want all of it. Well, the congress wants all that you ask the president about that just a couple of days ago. He said he wanted it all out as well. Is that really true? They will they will fight to make sure much of that never sees the light of day. Let's take that to Mary Bruce covers congress senior congressional correspondent. Thank you, John. And of course, as we just heard from John Mary Democrats in congress were separation government, we have different constitutional duties, George and Democrats here are rallying the troops speaker Pelosi having a conference call with her members yesterday making the argument that Americans deserve the full truth here, they are ramping up the pressure to get not just the full report. But also that underlying evidence and on that call I'm told Pelosi told her. Members that you will reject any classified briefing on the report arguing that that would simply shield the public from the full findings. You know, Republicans voted for that to the vote in the house have released. This report is four hundred and twenty two nothing. What else is the GOP doing to prepare? Well, right now, they are in a wait and see mode until they see bars initial conclusions. But they are of course, relieved in welcoming the news of no new indictments. But as you mentioned they have been calling for transparency. They also want the full report to be made public. But right now, politically at least, George they're holding their fire. Democrats are not gonna wait to see Muller's report to continue their work here. They are ramping up scores of their own investigations into the Trump administration looking into everything from abuses of power to conflicts of interest to the president's finances. So the Trump administration and this president are going to continue to be under an intense microscope here on the hill for quite some time during Bruce thanks very much and here with our chief legal analyst, Dan Abrahams. Let's walk through the regulations here you've seen you've got some in an entity that this all should be releasing according to regulations, basically all to the general. That's right. So there's certain information which he must explain that would have been if the special counsel had been fired or if there'd been a disagreement where they had overruled the special. Currently there were none of that. Apparently there were not. So those were the muss now we're in the maze the maze. It's up to the attorney general. He's allowed to decide what is in the public interest. And what is not? And there are several reasons he could site for leaving for holding onto the report not revealing certain for the strongest arguments. The first bucket is classified information. Grand jury information ongoing investigations, those are the easiest ones to say, you know, what we can't release information about that the harder ones are then executive privilege where the president is saying I had private conversations with people, and that shouldn't be released and the typical Justice department policy, which is we don't talk about people who were not indicted now. And that's we got in trouble for rod Rosenstein who said that should be department policy. The problem with that is this a specific provision in the special counsel law, which says that he may make it public which makes this different than a typical federal investigation. One of the things that could make it easier to let us at least some of the information apparently special counsel, Robert Muller, did not go to a grand jury and the obstruction questions. Those are just interviews. Right. So so then you rule out that as a possible explanation? Right. So you can't say, well, there's grand jury information here. Now, we're back to that that bottom line question is can they release information about things that were not indicted, and specifically Muller is required by the special counsel regulations to explain decisions that they made not to indict what are called declamations. The question is will bar then make that material public? And of course, you know, the president has the power to declassify anything he wants to order, the attorney general release everything, absolutely. And the real fight. Of course is going to be with congress subpoenaing. It's pretty clear it's going to get a point where congress is going to say we want to see the whole thing they're going to subpoena, and then you have a real legal fight. We're gonna be right back after this from ABC stations. Ace.

So that he cannot pick up that option and that you get something for him. Or you say, I'm fine. Like, I mean, I like Harrison Barnes being on the team, and it's going to be his last year and that. Worst. It's an asset next year because it's an expiring contract, and you know, he can help us, and he's whatever my third best player on the team on some given night. What do you think you think they moved Barnes? Because obviously if he picks up his option to kills cap space a big amount. I think for Dallas needs to be more than just about the option at think it depends on what you're getting back because his bond is a good player. He's a good player as like, here's good. He shouldn't be there your go to guy. He probably shouldn't be your second guy. But it'd be the third guy. Yeah. I I just don't know if you want to pay your third guy twenty five million I think for Barnes right now. He's in a role where he's doing more than he should be doing. He should be closer to what that Golden State will was a lot of spot up shooting three. Indeed, essentially, right.
