Thanks for having me excited to be here in case people don't know who you are. You're you're based out of Toronto Canada. Like I said, see old rivalry, the the Robin Hood of e Sports and sports betting. You're a former of yourself, you know, you turn this passion into what I would call a content to Commerce authentic story. Then you kind of build this platform from scratch and you know just early this your home is what twenty million dollars. Yep. Awesome. So yeah and robbery, of course, it's answer. Maybe it's the the leading sports betting and sports media property right now offering fully regulated on Thursday. During these Sports awesome, it's such a great industry. They tend to find yourself in. And I just, I'm just curious, you know, how did you ever find yourself in that position? Yeah, so, I guess it goes back. I mean, so first one, when I was younger, I'd played a bit of time, Rainbow Six on Xbox, like early Xbox and that's a new bra know in Canada, there was definitely like, I mean, it was really a sports then it was just people pussy. Clans and playing competitive. Competitively online and there was actually this is like Roman MLG was getting started. They would host these like really really, really tiny tournaments at The Fan Expo in Toronto and the fanxchange is like Toronto's version of Comic-Con. It's like the Canadian like small version of it. So would play we play at those with my I have a twin brother so we would we would do that. Then we got extremely addicted to World of Warcraft played that Route 4 to 5 years. Really, really consistently up until like the end of kind of let's say, burning Crusade. And then once University and decided to kind of do some other things with our time, but did that and then do professionally went into the financial industry sort to finance for a bit and then really in like 2013 and 14 when valve released the arms deal update and skins trading started to pick up, I was just playing Counter-Strike box games and do a lot of people do. Thought that was a really interesting kind of business and it paired a little bit with my current experience in the financial industry and honestly we're just getting excited by wage. Happening like in Escape Marketplace this to like Dota 2 in csgo skins, the market places. I ended up meeting these two guys, Ryan White and Kevin Wimmer who are the co-founders of Loop Market, which is anyone here that would do two player and bought skins should remember? Cuz I think, at one point, we were the largest Dota 2, skins Marketplace globally. So they were running that out of Toronto, which was more just coincidence. And this is like a 1015 early 2016. At this point we ended up becoming Partners where I said, hey, you know, well, maybe raise some money and help dilute Market a bit, but let's also look at doing other things and let's say, gave me media any sports together
Self Storage Investing with Jacob Vanderslice
"I've always. I've always really liked self storage and see how fast i mean. It seemed pretty fast to me when you said you really started getting into it about two thousand fifteen. Is that right now. You've grown over the last five and a half years to wear at. That's that's impressive. Yeah the quit so going back to that kind of understanding this. You said you started to go to the mid west. How many states are y'all in currently about ten states. We got a bunch of deals in the florida. Panhandle carolina colorado of course ohio michigan illinois wisconsin. So we generally like the mid west in the southeast quite a bit. We of course like the mountain west. But it's tough to find yield right now in our own backyard. Denver's been rather oversupplied and pressing expectations in dividend yields are just not what we can find in some of these more secondary markets. How're you finding these. Are these Something that broker brings you chop off market or combination. We've i've done a little bit of both. We did a. We applied some of our single family marketing practices to self storage acquisitions and we played about ten million off of a direct mail campaign. It was a pretty basic letter to saying. Hey we're not brokers were buyers we love to give an offer on your facility and the rest of our acquisitions have been just through our broker network. I hate using the term off market because often an off market deal maybe not a good deal but we've gotten a few we believe really good off. Market deals just through broker relationships for the listed We did a twenty million dollar. Acquisition in michigan and that portfolio was not listed. We got through a broker contact in gave him a price that made sense for the sellers and enclosed so most of us broker networking but a little bit of direct to seller initiative. As well

Elon Musk Is a Stonckfluencer
"Go back to that for twenty tweet from twenty eighteen. Tell me a little bit more about the trouble. Daddy lennon too. So the brought must to court Basically because they're saying this is true you didn't have funding secured you misled. Investors sent the stock price up. You know it was nowhere near four twenty at the time. So they ended up settling out of court. He'd have to admit any wrongdoing. But he lost his chairmanship tesla. And musk find a total of twenty million dollars each and he was supposed to run any like market-moving tweets by the company's lawyers kind of the settlement was to sort of get a hold of of this wild twitter. And we've been seeing the tweets alana's sort of famous for being wild on twitter but recently we learned that you didn't really follow the judge's orders. In the case of running his tweets by lawyer right right even after paying forty million dollars was against chairmanship turns out based on this correspondence that the wall street journal through a request that he not running tweets by his lawyers. And the sec's upset that he's not actually following the agreement in the settlement so one of the tweets was about solar reproduction and the other one was him saying that the the stock was too high which actually sent the stock down about ten percent to be clear you on. Musk is still the. Ceo of tesla. Right he is still the. Ceo tesla in a ceo saying that your company's stock prices too high. Seems like a bad idea. Yeah i mean. He just has such an effect on the stock price. And it's like so obvious. Every time he sends a tweet you can chart out. You know how much he sends the tesla's stock upper down. Has anything happened to. Egon tweets by the sec added. The short answer is no There's a lot of back and forth between the sec. And his lawyers lawyers are saying he doesn't really need to run those tweets by them because their opinion Sec tried to hold him in contempt of court for an earlier tweet but the judge was like you guys deal with this and they did by saying okay. Employers have to go re tweets but only when they have to do with production refinances. But that doesn't seem to have stopped him here. I mean sec's only recourse. Would be to try to go back to a federal judge. See if the hold him in contempt or relitigate this whole thing you know get rid of the settlement and try to try to get him in trouble for that original for twenty tweet.
Elon Musk's Starlink Could Get a Boost From German Subsidies
"Satellite internet and other kinds of high speed. Internet service can be pricey before you can start using it. there's an upfront costs for. All the special hardware requires now. Germany is working on a program that could pay out a total of one hundred and twenty million dollars to cover those costs for its citizens. Initiative would be a boon for high speed internet providers. Like starlink the satellite internet venture from elon. Musk for more on this. I'm joined now by our germany correspondent boy pinch husky. Hey brian thanks for being here a and thanks for having me okay. So first things first. I wonder if you could start by explaining this problem of internet access in germany for us. Really why are they considering these subsidies in the first place. Yeah you see. It's a very unusual thing. That's going on around here. Because germany is europe's biggest economy and it's a technologically very developed nation a very industrialized nation famous for his various industries. Not least the car industry but however They've been struggling for whatever reason to provide fast internet to the whole of the population. I mean part of the reason is because investment hasn't been done into the actual sort hard infrastructure of of the ground networks required to bring cables to households and because germany kind of missed out on that. Now they're trying to serve leap over that. Phase of of internet access and just provide wireless internet beat from satellites or later from five g or from the wireless technologies and in order to achieve that in order to connect more people to decent internet source. They they are now considering or we'll be going ahead with subsidies for satellite internet and can you sort of connect the dots for us there. Why satellite internet essentially what. They're looking at is. They wanted to subsidize the purchase of the hardware required for households to receive satellite internet. Now the way it works is that satellite internet providers. Chaz starling elon. Musk starling that's one of the sort of bigger players in the market companies. What they do is they. Beam internet from their satellites directly into households in order to receive that you have to have a small satellite dish. You have to have a sort of a power unit and you have to have a kind of a router adapter and all that costs around five hundred euros in germany and the government is basically minded to cover the cost for one of hardware purchase in order to enable everyone who's eligible to get on the internet via satellite

I'm going to be too old and in the rest of my career is going to be one year deals. i think it's just. He feels he deserves to get a. And i'm not saying a ridiculous contract but he does deserve to get some security. Whether that's a three year. I don't know twenty million dollar contract. I think he has earned that. And i don't blame him for being sick of one year deals. I guess that's where i'm coming for. As i i would understand that when you're looking at some of these numbers and ought to pull up the stat. And he was above like to gilmore and somebody's great cornerbacks. You're like the only thing you can say is penalties at some point. You have to pay for how good and solid. He has been.

Four seven dash two hundred that are used. Now and under this program boeing subcontracted.

Volkswagen's Name Change Joke Didn't Land
"From brown and business wars daily on this monday april twelfth. Happy started the week. Everyone you know. Who's been having a tough april volkswagen matsue and as you may have that's mostly because they started the month with an april fools joke that fell flatter than a busted tire is started in the last days of march when the automaker quote accidentally unquote released a very serious sounding statement announcing that they'd be changing their name to volts wagon that's volts as in electricity. Now volkswagen's id for is the company's only electric model in the us market so far but the company is planning to build more and said that all future electric models would come emblazoned with their new name volts wagon now in eighty-three rolled company. Suddenly changing. Its moniker is suspicious right. But the name change announcement was so deadpan that it got picked up by the likes of cnbc. The bbc and the verge and all that publicity had an impact on the company's stocks. Volkswagen stock prices rose nearly five percent on the day the statement was released the ap reported but only hours later. A company spokesman confirmed that the name change was an early april. Fool's joke a joke. I should say that didn't quite land sea. Volkswagen isn't exactly held up as a model of corporate transparency. You may remember that in two thousand fifteen. The company installed deceptive software in its vehicles to cheat on government emissions tests that move launched a five-year fiasco. That cost volkswagen thirty. Five billion dollars led to the recall of millions of vehicles so volkswagen's been trying to dust off. Its image since then which makes this joke. Well puzzling to say the least and the us securities and exchange commission doesn't seem to have that much of a sense of humor. Manipulating the stock market is of course illegal. An even though it's not certain that manipulation was the intent behind volkswagen statement. The joke certainly swelled stock prices which could bring regulators knocking. But there's another automaker who's been there done that and is thriving that would be tesla which has in the past straight up to see the public in two thousand eighteen founder elon. Musk tweeted that. He had the funding to take tesla. Private stock prices surged ten percent. But it was later revealed that actually there was no such funding. Musket has company each over twenty million dollars in penalties to the sec. But today it seems like things are working out for tesla their social media the spotlight and their electric models are in last month. Wall street journal columnist dan. Neil took volkswagen the new. Id four for a spin and said tesla has nothing to worry about the id. Four is five years behind the comparable tesla you'll wrote and the engineering betrays a premature rush to market harsh words for volkswagen. Which of course has been angling of late to compete directly with tesla. Both automakers plan to open new european factories for their electric vehicles and volkswagen group

Johnson & Johnson and other drug companies plan tax breaks to offset $26 billion opioid settlement
"Johnson and johnson has gotten a lot of praise for its single dose covid nineteen vaccine approved by the fda last weekend but as it works to end the pandemic. johnson and johnson is also among four of america's biggest healthcare companies that are negotiating a settlement for their role in the nation's deadly opioid crisis. Tens of billions of dollars are at stake but the companies are also planning to use corporate tax breaks including a new one created during the pandemic to offset those opioid payouts. Some members of congress are furious about this. Npr addiction correspondent. Brian man joins us now. Brian So we mentioned johnson and johnson but there are other companies in this situation rate. Rachel johnson and johnson's obviously the name brand company here. These other three cardinal health amirah source baragan and mckesson work more behind the scenes or these really big corporations that earned huge profits distributing highly addictive opioid medications and now they face this wave of lawsuits tied to that business we know from financial filings at the companies are close to a settlement. That would resolve all that. Here's a cardinal health. Ceo michael kaufmann speaking to investors last month of cover the opioid quickly. You know as i've said in the path that continues to be as you know complex the go a lot of moving parts but were continuing to make progress there under the tentative terms of this deal. Cardinal health and these other companies aren't expected to admit any wrongdoing but as much as twenty six billion dollars would be paid out to help communities slammed by the opioid crisis but now these companies have revealed plans to write off a portion of those opioid payments on their taxes. House that's is that supposed to work. Yeah this is really controversial. In financial filings. The firm say they plan to declare these opioid payments as losses which is a deduction right. It's similar to one. Anybody might use to pay less than federal taxes. So if they pay twenty six billion dollars in opioid settlements they could recoup as much as four billion in tax benefits and that really anger some lawmakers including congressman jimmy gomez. He's a democrat from california. He says these communities need that money they get away with it detonates. Less money going into into the treasury that means less money for programs that will help get with the fallout of the crystals the companies. Meanwhile say they're just following federal tax law and that appears to be the case. One of the companies cardinal health says it plans to use a new tax break created last year under the cares act. This was a law. Signed by former president trump meant to help companies that were struggling because of the pandemic is cardinal health. A struggling company. No and this again is why this is so controversial. These health care and drug companies have done really well financially over the last year but cardinal health has confirmed it still plans to use that pandemic tax benefit to recoup as much as four hundred and twenty million dollars in taxes. Already paid out. The company sent a statement. Npr saying their tax plan is quote permissible under federal law but congressman gomez described. This use of the cares act is outrageous and wrong. His committee the house oversight and reform committee sent letters to all of these companies asking for more information about their tax strategies. We expect to hear some answers to those questions by next

to define that in the league that maybe they could find a way to recoup that money in it wouldn't be a significant drain on the league but I was more than a little shocked to hear his request was two million dollars per game yeah unless wait there and their interpretation was was it the XFL just wanted to use him you know to boost their league and there was no real yeah if it was sort of a publicity stunt coming from the XFL but I guess Oliver luck said week those are not finance is that we can we can participate in cell anyway that's what your answer to twenty million I I think I would

how it is well you just be careful when you leave and it's all slick over here and also just want throw that out there but I appreciate that warning and I'll make sure to drive very slowly on the way back thank you Eric right now no the only thing is now I know you were talking earlier about the you know the the fact that a couple these guys went very quickly already in the off season here on it but a I think you know there's a lot to do with the fact that the the two main guys is dreaming guys really were pitchers as opposed to the Harper Machado list year you know this you clearly the importance is the fishing on there and I I think a lot of people didn't think that the dog from a child to deserve those numbers last year breezy contracts he just took a while he was the bigger problem you did about Harper Machado you didn't have the Yankees really in on either guy you didn't have the Dodgers said when you don't have those big market teams that are willing to up the ante when it's like the Chicago White Sox who have viewed as a second city said in that town when you look at the San Diego Padres even a Phillies last year Eric nobody wanted to play for the Philadelphia Phillies info like last year so when you add all of that all in the market is in a strong and you combine that to what Strasbourg was looking at and what Cole was looking at that's why free agency kind of had a much different feel yeah yeah but I do think there is a little little point that also to real quick I mean just just goes to show you know they they go on the address you know major need that they had and they had the ability to withstand losing DD because they had a plethora of okay fill that spot as opposed to a mess when we'll go residue arrival and you know only picking up a fourth outfielder at the moment I will no I was going to play out the rest of it but it just goes to show still the dynamic is nowhere near you know where it should be an open C. calling his attention

million dollars in case you are put some of that money into stock. the show in nine years later that twenty five million had grown to be a hundred million dollars for the Clampett's so his banker Mister Drysdale invested jets money to get such a huge return I mean you don't work with the clippers for sure but you work with some clients that are quite wealthy and do things to invest their money so what kind of strategies options should people be looking at. everybody has a different strategy based on where they are in life based on what they've saved and so there are some wonderful tax strategies that the wealthy they really have available to them that that aren't available to just the the regular work in Joe or Jane so those are some things in and Christian our in Aruba this past may on a on a little trip will get away and we're out on the water meter just kind of is the day we got there and we were just out the water relaxing and there is a older couple their just relaxing as well and we struck up a conversation with them and the husband was a pretty high roller and the wife actually in our own right she built spec homes in west Palm Beach Florida was a price what was the entry level price on arrive million five million was the entry level price on the homes that she was building a spec home out west Palm Beach Florida. and they got to talk about life insurance what is needed if they're that wealthy though well I mean there's things like federal estate taxes that you have to think about you know so if think about if you have a hundred million dollar a state you could very well fifty million dollars in federal state taxes so you know how you pay for or even wealthy people don't necessarily have fifty million dollars in cash line around. so a lot of times I'll use life insurance to leverage to pay the death benefit for estate taxes. so we're talking about that with this couple and he's talking about how much he was paying in premiums on his life insurance and I looked at him I said you're wealthy enough why are you paying premiums on your life insurance he kind of looked at me with with a little bit of a confused look and I said plaques yeah a little perplexed look I said look I work within this isn't and to be honest this isn't my specialty but if there's a need out there that I want to have the answer for it so I said I work with the group out of Nashville Tennessee and that's what they specialize in is financed life insurance so if if you're looking for twenty million dollars in life insurance or fifty million dollars in life insurance or even a hundred million dollars life insurance you know if you've got the assets to support it it where you can post some collateral you can finance the premiums and and not pay a premium out of your pocket let the bank pay the premiums for you and keep your assets working for you so you're actually leveraging any got the concept once I got to talking to him about it and things like that so there's a lot of wealthy people that need insurance for buy sell agreements with their companies and yeah I ran into someone recently they have term insurance for a buy sell agreement now that's really assuming something that you're gonna die before the term's over because once that terms up then that life insurance policies useless unless you want to pay just unbelievably high premiums so whether it's a buy sell agreement that you're looking to do or whether it's a state planning or whether it's on you know for some families income replacement for when they want to kind of get out of their business and looking for possibility of some tax free income down the road or or or ways to keep your significant police from from leaving those are some ways to to do it using some things like

S. in Ohio Oklahoma and other states about who will control this money it's also a big question how much of the money will go to people and communities struggling with addiction so we're gonna have a lot of those questions in the weeks ahead add this brand man of north country public radio speaking to us via Skype thank you Brian thank you all right in to understand more about what the settlement could mean for the company the plaintiffs and the Sackler family we turn now to Charles Teitelbaum he's a director at trip Scott law firm and is a former bankruptcy professor at the university of Maryland law school welcome thank you so what part of this proposed settlement is that farmer would transform from a private company into what's called a public beneficiary trust what does that even mean it means that through the bankruptcy court process which they're going to do they will turn the ownership of the business to a trustee work actually three trustees for the benefit of the public for their in essence turning over the ownership of the company to the public okay so then how would this settlement get executed like how does that work the way it works is that the public trust will now operate the company and will generate profits which we anticipate to be between seven and eight billion dollars and those profits will be used to help settle some of the claims conditionally if they have any subsidiaries that are non opioid that they sell the proceeds from that sale will be used to pay the creditor top okay are there other examples of of private companies that for one reason or another become public beneficiary trusts this is the first one I've seen them by fifty three years a banker so why has it been so rare you think for something like this to happen for private companies to be made into public benefits your address because most of the bankruptcy trusts have kept the company's running under the current ownership to protect the stockholders because they've been mostly public companies here at the Sackler family owns the interest so it lends itself to their turning over the company because they're no shareholders to complain well what about non private companies have you seen other examples of non private companies being turned into public beneficiary trusts after being sued we see trust your created in the bankruptcy they're not public benefits tree trust because the shareholders keep some of the interests and the trustees get some of the interest so in in a lot of cases where you have public companies such as asbestos cases are you D. cases the breast implant cases Piper aircraft for example all of them were public companies where the ownership went some to the trust and some to the creditors and some to the shareholders are here there are no shareholders accepted the fact we're family okay so what else stands out to you in this agreement what what's what's so important is besides the Sackler's themselves purportedly donating or contributing three billion dollars what was so important is that the bankruptcy court will resolve this by approving the settlement if they do and then the bankruptcy court will enter what's called a bar order which if the bankruptcy court finds that the Sackler's contributions are meaningful contributions then the bankruptcy court will bar any person or entity from ever suing or claim against the Sackler's where the company again I see okay so to be clear after this happens this public beneficiary trust to set up going forward every single asset of the Sackler family will be protected from any future lawsuits related to Purdue pharma correct if the bankruptcy judge finds that what the Fackler family is contributing is a meaningful contribution got it so how likely you think is it that this judge will sign off on this I think it may be likely yes everybody who is a proponent of the deal is able to convince the judge that based upon the financial capabilities of the Sackler's and the public benefit from this that all of this will be to the public good it is totally subjective with the bankruptcy judge to prove it but I suspect that the judge will Charles Teitelbaum is a director at trips got law firm thank you very much for speaking with us today my real pleasure U.

You're absolutely fine. All right. Allie europe. Welcome to handle on the law. Morning bill. Yes, sir. Couple of months ago. I sold my car and the person pulled up car reeked of marijuana. They were high they purchased the car they took it. Next morning. I started getting threatening messages on my phone. Basically. Car. All right. Threatening messages saying what? You don't know who you're dealing with. You don't think I'm gonna do to you? I went to the police department. They said it has to be more precise and exact. All right. Okay. Then they bring the car, and they drop it off on my driveway. I see it on my camera. I call the sheriff's department. I need them across the street. I told him the situation they come. They look they see that the cars parked there. Unoccupied with the vehicle. With the with a Q on the vehicle. Okay. So she has the title. I saw the door, and and you have the money, right? I have the money and she okay fair enough. I I gave her smart. Check is required by law. Immediately. I do a release of liability, right and. She's mean for nine thousand six hundred something dollars based on what she has the car you sold it. I. What does she suing you for for the price of the car based on? What exactly I don't know that? Well, there has to be a reason. Do you have a lawsuit in front of you have been served? Yes. I have been served. Okay. What isn't okay? And based on what just reimbursement for monies pay. That's all it says for an automobile, I paid cash on reprise. That's it. That's what it is. That's what the lawsuit is. Okay. That'll be going front you go in front of the court. What is supreme court or is it small claims small claims court? Okay. Then you show up you go here. It is. Here's a picture of the car. She brought it back. I don't know why she paid for it registered in her name. I don't know what to do your honor. She didn't it doesn't matter. So it's okay. So it's you're so you own the car now. Owns the car now. Okay. So the title is in your name. Well, first of all she's not going to get any money. Okay. All right. That's not gonna happen. It's a legitimate. It's a legitimate sales. So and and she's not saying you breached, she's not saying you defraud her. She's not saying the car was misrepresented issue in the lawsuit. No, absolutely. All right. So she's sewing I want my money back. Yeah. But the price of the car was a little over three thousand and she's suing for nine thousand something. And why would she get nine thousand? I'm just curious three thousand one hundred thousand of course. Get the maximum amount. That's correct. Ten thousand is correct. That's correct. And if the maximum was fifteen thousand you for fifteen thousand and there are a couple states a couple of states where it's actually twenty five thousand dollars in small claims court, and she would have sued you for twenty five thousand dollars after you pay three thousand dollars. How do you think that's gonna fly in small claims court? Yeah. So anything I should say they just tell your story to the judge. And that's it. That's it. Make it short make it sweet. You don't want to just go on and on. I would write it out. So you know, exactly what you're saying. Judges have less patients than I do and to add to that the sheriff's department wanted me to have the car towed off my driveway because blocking my driveway, then tow it up and show it off the driveway in sue her well off the driveway put into storage yard sooner. I put it on the street. Come pick it up and she picked it up. All right. Well, that's what she's allowed to abandon the the the car, and you have to go to the DMV and tried to get the car out of your name and say it was here's the Bill of sale, and it's not registered and whatever the DMV says to do to get you off title. And I think the DMV just has a way of doing it. Now, the good news about the. Yeah, I checked and her name is already somehow showing paperwork as me releasing the liability to her. Okay. To her name yet. But if you've released a liability, then you should you should then you should be. Okay. Then you should be. Okay. You shouldn't you shouldn't have a problem.

"Of the twenty million dollars obviously it's excessive and i can't imagine any court really going along with it if if if you're gonna find somebody twenty million on the basis of one hundred thirty thousand hey off the proportionality is just bizarre but that aside my understanding is that you need at twenty million dollar threshold to make it fit under the under the statutes to take it into federal court where you have litigants in different states normally this applies to corporations and individuals the other school of thought is that the twenty million dollars is basically the trump people signaling to stormy daniels that there's a twenty million dollar payoff if she stays quiet so there are all sorts of legal and strategic reasons why they might throw the twenty million out that right jurisdictional bar for federal court might be some piece of it although they wouldn't need it to be that high but it might be merely sort of a mechanism to say why they want to move from state court to federal court it also might be signal that they intend to play hard ball and i suppose i'm conversely that they would be willing to be quite soft in the other direction if she was willing to back out the kind of sort of fire hose of public information campaign that she and her attorney have been engaged in in recent weeks make it seem very unlikely to me that she is interested in backing down from this and in any event of course cds has its interview rape they're done and can move forward and so it seems likely that a week from today we we we do see whatever it was that stormy daniels had to say so there's something peculiar about this as shown the all of this guy back two hundred thirty thousand dollars payoff a week before the elections to stormy daniels which count himself had to take that home equity loan to pay for this fcc federal election commission problems with that cowan apparently was never even reimbursed by trump obviously trump doesn't want his fingerprints on it but on the other hand now they're talking about finding her twenty million all of this seems sort of almost like petulant anger from the sidelines when the train has left the station visavis cbs is sixty minutes so does that strike you as being bit peculiar there is yeah it definitely is peculiar with and it may well be.
