ByteDance Says It Won. Trump Says Not So Fast. TikTok Continues For Now.

"Okay, here's what I can tell you. You can still use tiktok as of this moment president trump since we last spoke said he approved Oracle's bid for the US. Operations of tiktok quote in concept, and so essentially the US delayed the planned tick tock band by about a week as Oracle Walmart looked to take a twenty percent stake in Tiktok globals planned pre IPO round as well as of course, the deals to host talks us user data and computer systems quoting Bloomberg I approve the deal and concept trump told reporters Saturday as he left the White House for a campaign rally in Fayetteville north. Carolina if they get. It done. That's great. If they don't, that's okay too and quote the new company which will be called tiktok global has agreed to funnel five billion dollars in new tax dollars to the US and set up a new education fund which trump said would satisfy his demand that the government receive a payment from the deal quote they're going to be setting up a very large fund. He said that's their contribution that I've been asking for an quote Oracle plans to take a twelve point, five percent stake in the new tiktok level. While Walmart said, it has tentatively agreed to by seven point, five percent of the entity. Walmart's. Officer Doug Macmillan will serve on tiktok global's board of directors. The retailer said in a statement for of the five board seats will be filled by Americans according to the statement tic TACs. Owner Bite dance is seeking evaluation of sixty billion dollars for the APP, according to a person familiar with the matter Oracle and Walmart would pay a combined twelve billion dollars for their stakes. If they agreed to that asking price, the final valuation has not been set as the party's worked out the equity structure and measures data security. The person said terms are still in flux and the proposed valuation could still change and quote. Yet more about that flex in a second but more about that five billion dollar payment to the government. The president mentioned I. Guess That's the key money by another name that he was asking for all along except that seems to have come as news to at least most of the parties involved Oracle later confirmed it to a degree but quoting Dan primack on twitter. More about tiktok quote Payments Number One the Education Fund is not to fun trump's patriotic history project number two, the five billion dollar figure is not codified anywhere and no one expects it to be anywhere near that big number three, the five billion dollars to the Treasury is anticipated payroll taxes over an unspecified period. Of Time, there will be an education focused effort using tick tock short video format distribution tool, but there is no dollar amount tied to it with trump seeming to inflate the payroll tax figure with the Education Fund remember Tick Tock doesn't have five billion dollars at least not until its IPO wants to complete within twelve months and quote. So. Again has this all been Kabuki theatre make the president think he's getting his key money. Give a politically connected firm, a sweetheart deal, and even if the five billion dollars is really not going to be five billion dollars again, we have the president of the government forcing the investment of private property, giving it to favourite entity and essentially asking for a kickback exactly. What happens in Banana Republics Super? Oh and about that whole thing being inflex bite dance. This morning was asserting that it is maintaining majority ownership and control over tick tock global and will not transfer any source code or technology to Oracle or Walmart so essentially waving a flag saying they won. Quoting the Financial Times bite that set on money that it would maintain majority ownership and control of tiktok global contradicting statements by Donald trump oracle, and Walmart after it agreed a deal with the companies to continue operating in the US Oracle, the US technology group, and Walmart, the world's biggest bricks and mortar retailer said in a joint statement at the weekend that Tiktok level would be majority owned by American investors and quote however while they're state combined with the equity held by. Long standing US investors by dance might mean, American investors would be the biggest financial beneficiaries, direct majority ownership and control of the business is set to remain with the Chinese company in a statement released on January tat chow by dances Chinese social media platform. The company said tiktok global would be a quote one, hundred percent fully owned subsidiary. The company added that after raising funds ahead of a potential initial public offering, it would have an eighty percent stake in the company and quote. So maybe that wasn't a good thing to go spouting off about because this either means now the deal is really off. Because the Chinese side really doesn't want it or else the deal is off because the president isn't going to be pleased about that more in just one second or else everyone is just GonNa declare victory and. Meaningful has actually changed my money's on that but hard to tell at this point because to conclude. About thirty minutes ago. President trump. said, he would not approve a tick tock deal bite dance ceded control, and well I don't know.

TikTok is saved (for now): What you need to know

"So what happened over this busy weekend? Yeah I mean it's been quite the saga when it comes to tech top, there's been a lot of twists and turns and Different reports about you know. Who would partner with Tiktok, and what happened this weekend was trump basically blasted deal in concept between Walmart in Oracle that would give or Walmart a combined twenty percent stake in a new company called tiktok global and Florida five board members would be Americans and so this basically. gave enough assurance that the US government would temporarily delay any sort of ban on you downloads of Tiktok or a week. Like you said this has been an ongoing saga prior to this trump was against this deal and really probably is because you know these companies didn't have a majority stake in. What changed to get trump on board with the steel I mean. There's been a lot of back and forth between the companies even though Oracle in Walmart would have a combined twenty percent stake. Some people say that they're technically would be a majority ownership of American companies because by dance is owned by forty percent of US investors on this company, talk global will eventually go public. So that could potentially lower the Chinese ownership I mean. There's still a lot of questions in detail have to be hashed out in steel, and there was also some confusion over the weekend for example, trump had mentioned that. would be five billion dollars contributed to a US education fund oracle. Clarify that Tiktok, with pay by billion dollars in new taxes to the US Treasury. So it seems like behind the scenes, there are some terms that worked out that seem to appease trump but there's still a lot of details and confusion circulating the steel. Got It. In Friday we broke down how the trump administration has labeled to talk a national security concern. The idea being that the data that tiktok has on users could conceivably be turned over to the Chinese government. How does this deal address those concerns? We'll some senators Republican senators say that doesn't address these concerns to talk in Oracle say that they do because Oracle with hosted on its US Jadon it's cloud platform and they will be able to review the APP source code. You also have to remember that currently right now us user data according to talk is not stored in China already stored in the US and there's a backup in Singapore. So there are some critics of the deal including some Republicans you say that this doesn't really appeased national security concerns if that's where you're going after Puckett and so going back to Oracle Walmart I'm just. I'm curious. Why would they want to get involved with Tiktok I sorta get it with Oracle on this tech partnership where they would. They would store the data protected Walmart coming player. So large people view Tiktok as this you know. Fun, video APP where you're doing a lot of lip singing and dancing but there's also a lot of diy videos. Sometimes, I see videos about people is saying like these are the top five things I found on Amazon. So TIKTOK has been testing some E. Features in which. People can add links. So users can. Buy something or shop from this APP. So even though right now it's not really viewed as a big commerce a platform that is something that tiktok could definitely evolved into as it continues to grow. That's why you're seeing Walmart coming in as big player to might seem not seem odd right now but there's definitely a potential at, Tiktok does become the place where you shop in the future.

Trump And The TikTok Deal: What You Need To Know

"What happened over the weekend? Well, as you probably knew that tick Tock Circus has continued the latest drama surrounding what is actually in the Tiktok by dance Walmart Oracle deal that will see the creation of a US based company associated with Tiktok operations. Some issues that were in contention over the last couple of days included who retain control of the new based company. Would it go public and what was that a five billion dollar payout? All about well, luckily for US tech roaches read allows put together a piece that. is fantastic and goes over the core things. What I have done is steal from it the key important bits. So I'm going to read to you bits of Rita's post to catch you and I both up to where things are as this morning. Of course, by this afternoon who knows okay by dance is still the owner China's bite dance confirms it will retain an eighty percent stake in. TIKTOK. After a total of twenty percent to Oracle, it's trusted technology partner and Walmart it's Commercial Partner Tiktok seeks US IPO tiktok confirms. An initial public offering in the US in an effort to quote further enhance corporate governance and transparency. No algorithms transfer in line the previous reports. Be Hanging over tick ducks, algorithms, or technologies to Oracle. Instead, the American database giant will gain the authority to perform security checks on quote tiktok. US source codes five billion in tax dollars by dance estimates that Tiktok will be a total of five billion in income tax and other tax dollars incurred in the US to the US Treasury in the coming years nonetheless, the final figure is contingent on tiktok quote actual performance and the US tax structure. The parent company said stressing that the tax money had nothing to do with the ongoing deal hot this. Appears to be this figure this five billion number to where the trump administration got. The idea that somehow dance was going to pay the US government five, billion dollars by dance vehemently disagrees, and now we're in bit of muddle. The question is will the I dunno situation which I'm sure the trump admin will view as a slight enough to upend the US side of the transaction I don't think so but you know it's twenty twenty who

Cloud security best practices and tips

Cloud security best practices and tips

"I WanNa talk today in our pre show discussion you said that you're interested in talking about the strengths and pitfalls of cloud security practices. And what can be done to protect business across multiple platforms so we've had a couple of club professionals on in the past and the show and I wanted to talk about your current work around security. So what are some of the top issues around cloud security that you don't think are being taken seriously enough at the moment? Yeah I. think There's A. There's an interesting problem which is you know this pithy saying that while cloud is just your stuff running on somebody else's compute right and it's like well, and then then you get this, you get, you get this concept of the shared responsibility model thrown at you. It's like well, the cloud provider will handle their part and then I'll give you kind of. Controls to handle your part. At and so he you know intrinsically feels a lot like that's just like my on Prem staff where some infrastructure team does with the infrastructure on ideal with with things in my environment the problem is that it is actually quite dissimilar in a number of different ways. If. You think about uncrowned infrastructure has been pretty stable for a pretty long period of time there isn't there isn't. Every six months, the entire technology portfolio, dozen turnover, right and. Services get rolled out a new concept enrolled out in it in the cloud. If you think about aws if you think about Azure, if you think about TCP there cannot going toe to toe with each other trying to create these new services also daily basis it's all CIC de- deployed immediately. You don't have. You don't have any notion of a stable set of infrastructure that where did you can choose to remain on for like six months or a year? And then on top of that, these entire ecosystems are pretty damn complex at this point like if you if you look at. Identity in the cloud if you look at what you have to get right in the cloud if you look at You Know How you do entitlement and other kinds of things and understanding the interconnects under the cloud. We have gone it took US fifteen years of going through Microsoft. Windows. Ecosystems to finally understand all the underpinnings hot as how do you feel credentials? Have you how do you do all these things? That understanding just doesn't exist in the cloud, and so you have a complex fast-moving ecosystem. Right. You have attackers who simply have to get you know attack template right once it's entirely reusable. Me Think about the capital one attack last August that was. In the news it was an attack on Capitol one it was an attack, it was an aws template attack. Affected one hundred companies of which capital one just happen to be one of the hundred companies right and so the notion of once you find a key his applicable to. Blast radius. Is. Pretty. Across the customers And and given the complexity systems complex is always in the disadvantage of the right because you can't get your head wrapped around exactly what all the inter-plays are, what your tax services are. Yes. Yeah. Trying to attacker just has to find one way to run a gauntlet that we'll get through even twenty percent of their customers because of our. Defenses. So I think this is the problem is, is that you have very complex systems and we're still in the early stages of China deal with coming up with preventive technologies like if you think about holid- posture, management, security posture management's this is all about like sitting your preventive. Like Basically in in the realm of building national lines right and. On the on side, we've already shifted over the past five or six years towards detection response in as an adjunct to prevention, and yet we're just beginning to build the prevention building blocks. This is. I think the issue. Okay. Yeah. So yeah. So what what is your ideal business protection scenario across you know cloud platforms and stuff if you could wave the magic wand what what does this whole endeavor looks like in terms of? Yeah say. There are few things that he'd definitely kind of want to do. You WanNa limit the number of cloud platforms you expose yourself. I. Think There's a business side that says, Hey. You know if he build stuff so we can be on GDP azure and aws than wherever else ride them we have a lot of. Negotiating leverage in negotiating with those various providers as are all bills. Walk we go. Hey, you know. If you're not going to give me a good deal go over here in run more of my workloads over here. The problem is that that that? Each of these cloud platforms has unique attack surface. right, and so the more of them you expose yourself to the harder you make it to collectively wrap your head around. Around these systems and so I'd have a lot of people are trying to do is really wrap their workloads. With, a protective rapper and say, well, you know this can run any kind of hostile environment. I have my productive wrap around that. Turns out not to be quite true because if you get something, I mean if you root Kevin Thank. You Root Kit at the PC you can be as secure as you think, right if somebody's busy sitting. Controlling your entire University of your perception of Reality Yeah doesn't work so. Few. Try. And and if you need, you need leverage from a business perspective, you know get onto to cloud platforms. Don't allow every part of the business, pick its own thing, and then just end up having to support it in the guise of business agility. So trying standardized trying to of bring it down by bring it down to a set of services that you use. On the SAS side. which is the other kind of cloud trend I ride as obviously you know running your own applications in the cloud versus just. Going to vendor having them run the obligation for you definitely focus on things like soft compliance focused on the manageability. And the audit trail supply because you'd be surprised, you look at different collaboration software that's in the cloud and the difference between integrate enterprise grade and not enterprise bray is finally comes down to okay. Are there good audit trails? Do they arrive at a reasonable time period or does does he sa say well, within twenty four hours we'll know something we'll let you know if something goes wrong. Do you have the kind of find main controls where you can express all you want? So I think those are the two things you look at the adoption of cloud and ultimately. Basically comes down to where's your data. Think about the data and think about the access method that data? Everything else is. Secondary and tertiary. So focused yourself around the data and how it is accessed, who you wanNA give access to. As you're thinking about cloud winnow down the track of things that you're using because. Each, thing is a snowflake and brings its own unique attack surface

What's going on with Tik Tok and WeChat?

"Don't know what's going on. With TIKTOK. Today this morning. was supposed to be the morning Tiktok was turned off and we chat to both owned by Chinese company Bite Dance. The. The idea. The US Commerce Department said Nope because it's Chinese and you know. You know. You know it's a it's a threat to our great national sovereignty or something. I don't really understand honestly the Chinese could spy on. US I. Guess. I guess or then then some who are a little more nuanced say well, it's not that they're just like our location. But they could propagandize us. Oh, you mean like facebook. Yeah. Like that. They don't. They don't need Tiktok they've got facebook. Anyway, the this has been going on and on and on and back in. August. He's the president said forty five days to. To Sell Yourself to American. Company. Microsoft and Walmart were bidding. So was Oracle, which is a big database company not really widely known among consumers but. A A very popular database for reasons no one understands fully in enterprise because it's not it's terrible but anyway, it's. It's been here a long time. I think it's really why it's so successful its owner Larry Ellison has become one of the wealthiest men in the world is busy bidding building building big yachts bigger than other people's yachts. That's what that's what you do. If you're a billionaire, you just build I, want my yacht to be bigger. Mr Ellison is also a supporter of the president and has held fundraisers and I think that helped a little bit. Because last Sunday. Microsoft said Yeah took talk. Told US we're out. An Oracle said, we didn't buy it but we are a tech partner and Walmart said I'm switching teams. I'm now with our Oracle okay. Between the two of them. Oracle and Walmart will have a a minority stake. In Bite dance by giving them some amount of money. For stock or something. and then it's so complicated. It turns out that that because bite dance has I think something like forty percent of its investors are in the US. They're adding that to the walmarts oracle stake in the commerce. Department says good. That's a majority. So, it is now on majority US owned the president said. All right. That's good. So he's approved this bid. In concept. He also says. this new company which will be called Tick Tock Global. This and so he's going to put the ban on hold for a week. TIKTOK global will also give five billion dollars in new tax dollars to the US. Five billion with a B. to set up. A new education fund is really a propaganda fund. The president has put together to teach children. To I don't know what loved your leader anyway it's Oracle take a twelve and a half stake in TIKTOK. Global Walmart tentatively agreed by seven and a half percent twelve makes twenty percent. And five of four of the five board seats will be filled by Americ- Americans. And then the courts. The the US judge in California has issued a preliminary injunction saying you can't ban we chat. From, the apple and Google stores. it's it's hard to understand really what the president would be for the Commerce Department saying Apple Google, you have to remove an APP from the store I don't think that's ever happened before. Commerce Department officials say we are prepared for long legal battle Oh. Great. Just what the world needs. Another long legal battle. This is this is just going to be an endless story. Isn't it? Tech talk you know. Is Is a fan favourite with the young ones? They? I don't know if you've seen it it's actually quite entertaining. I know you've seen it because they were buying ads on the NFL football games. Last weekend trying to guess Excite the American people about the potential for TIKTOK. You know I don't have a huge. Care A, lot about it. It's just another social network just weird that the US government says, well, we can ban it just we're just going to ban it. I don't think I don't know. We chat, which is a chat program not widely used in the US mostly by. Chinese citizens in the US and friends Chinese Americans with friends with friends and family in China. Because in China it's universal. Widely, used and not just as a chat program. It's not another. facebook. Messenger. Really, used for everything. So yesterday. The President says I approve the deal. In concept. We have and I think quite reasonably blocked. Chinese. Companies like wow way, and Z. T.. Because they are network companies and while whe. Especially has a lot of equipment in the five G. Networks and the threat is that an order from the Chinese government which would be fully legal in China to a Chinese company would say, Hey, just cut off that American stuff just turn it off or but get or so I can understand the reason to do that. Take talk a little bit more tenuous. So, a little bit more tenuous and I do feel bad. There's a lot of kids really fun funny videos and Tiktok, there's tiktok stars and making a ton of money. on Tiktok an a lot of fame and celebrity in fact sometimes. Too. Much fame and celebrity. There, there are those. On Tick Tock who say how I just I can't handle the fame. So but most people talk I think it's just a fun entertaining. I do I just don't know. We are phones are spy ing on us all the time by any company that can get an APP on your phone can pretty much spy on you all the time. That's why I'm really excited by what both. Google android and. IOS, apples, IOS are doing both of them are now starting to especially with new Iowa fourteen pop up little notices that say, Hey, you know this application has been looking at in the background at your location even showing you a map. Of where where they just reported home at do you want to do that? You can disallow it? Same thing on android.

Commerce Department officials say we are prepared for long legal battle Oh. Great. Just what the world needs. Another long legal battle. This is this is just going to be an endless story. Isn't it? Tech talk you know. Is Is a fan favourite with the young ones? They? I don't know if you've seen it it's actually quite entertaining. I know you've seen it because they were buying ads on the NFL football games. Last weekend trying to guess Excite the American people about the potential for TIKTOK. You know I don't have a huge. Care A, lot about it. It's just another social network just weird that the US government says, well, we can ban it just we're just going to ban it. I don't think I don't know. We chat, which is a chat program not widely used in the US mostly by. Chinese citizens in the US and friends Chinese Americans with friends with friends and family in China. Because in China it's universal. Widely, used and not just as a chat program. It's not another. facebook. Messenger. Really, used for everything. So yesterday. The President says I approve the deal. In concept. We have and I think quite reasonably blocked. Chinese. Companies like wow way, and Z. T.. Because they are network companies and while whe. Especially has a lot of equipment in the five G. Networks and the threat is that an order from the Chinese government which would be fully legal in China to a Chinese company would say, Hey, just cut off that American stuff just turn it off or but get or so I can understand the reason to do that. Take talk a little bit more tenuous.

Should You Go to War With a Larger Company

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su. And I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about if you should go to war with a larger company. So let's give you some context here. Yesterday were recording this as of August Fourteenth Twenty, twenty fortnight decided to go all out. They basically added in that payments and gay people discount, and you're actually you're not allowed to do that inside of apples ego system or android ecosystem because they charge either apple charges thirty percent commission I believe for Android it's about twenty percent or so. So both android and apple kick them off the. But what happened was epic, which is the owner fortnight by the way to do seventeen, billion dollars a year I believe they had their lawyers ready to go. So everything was drafted out boom lawsuit and basically what happened next was they had the nineteen eighty-four spin spin on apple's nineteen eighty-four added where that person came out and she spun around and through this thing. At the big giant TV and so look they were totally prepared to take off the gloves ready to go crazy and so yeah, they're fighting this behemoth seventeen billion dollars is the David Goliath is, what's what's apple's market cap trillion right over one trillion they're actually me up closer to getting to too there you have it. So what are your thoughts on this? Neil? Look at today I believe you should do what's best for your customers and users, and if that means you have to fight someone didn't do it because whatever's the best experience for your customers, your users what benefits in the most is what's going to win in the long run? Even if that means, you're going to have a battle with a really large corporation. Yeah I, think you know most people that are not in text don't know about the base camp founders how they launched. Hey and the how they're fighting they were fighting apple I don't know what ended up happening with that. But this is a much bigger example because everyone knows what art is and for them to actually file a lawsuit and then go against them and create a really nice add as well. That shows that you know they are sick and tired of being charged. You know seemingly outrageous kind of race it's I actually think it's apples prerogative to charge whatever they want. To charge, you know you're you're free to come off the platform whatever. So we'll see how this plays out. You know I think it's good pr you know from a market perspective it's going to be good for epic fortnight to just be like Oh like, yes I'm was actually standing up to apple and you know they're going to be in the news for a little bit more, and so we'll see what happens there and they're also big enough where they potentially when while most people who are trying to mess around with apple are much smaller have the capital while fortnight has enough. Money, but in general speaking, you should do its best beer users, and if that means you fight against someone than Soviet, you're doing what's best and what's right and at the goal then go for it you may not win. There's no guarantee of that but you gotta do what's right for people. Yeah I mean the final thing I'll add is look the discount on a permanent discount, right so instead of paying seven dollars or sorry instead of paying ten dollars for to buy coins for for in game items, it's actually seven dollars. Now I believe eight dollars. That's a significant discount because. I. Remember back

The new TikTok-Oracle company named ‘TikTok Global’ plans to go public in a year

"We are expecting an announcement in the next day or so on the approval of a new entity that I'm total be called tick top global getting some new details from a source close to the situation about why this proposal is expected to be approved and makes this new tick tock global majority owned in the US by source explaining that today by dance is forty percent owned by us, investors couldn't KKR SEQUOIA General Land and. And it's fifty one percent owned by Chinese nationals. Now, a new tiktok global would mirror those ownership stakes. So bike dance selling anything more than about ten percent to Oracle would make the company majority US owned now is expected to by about twenty percent of this new company tiktok global. Now, the sale of an additional stake to Walmart would further increase US ownership over that fifty percent mark multiple sources telling me that tiktok global plans to file for an IPO on one of the US stock exchanges in about a year that would again further dilute Chinese ownership and sources. Tell me that Walmart would get a seat on the. Board the board would be subject to US government approvals. I'm told by a source close to the situation and the CEO and C. Suite would be American. Now, this comes as the companies, of course, looking for a permanent CEO replace Kevin Mayor The New York Times reporting that among those that Tiktok has talked to Kevin System instagram's founder and former CEO?

Update On The Leadership Conference In Sweden

"The world is ripe and ready for restarting and looking ahead. So where better to get a clear and uninterrupted view than from the eastern Swiss Alps and that is the setting for the chiefs. Monaco's. Conference which welcomes visionaries, founders and industry leaders for look ahead how business and indeed the whole world could move forward from here well. Is, tyler lay and he students all through the day's event at Subaru in summer. It's and I'm delighted to say he's taken a moment out of the conference to join us now to tell us what is happening where he is tyler apart from the obvious attraction from the chairlift right to an Alpine dinner, it must feel good to bring people together again. Good afternoon. Good afternoon Emma absolutely, and I think that has been one of the probably. Comment people just feel so good to be out in the world again and just meeting people in a setting which feels pretty normal I. I don't think there's much going on here that would make you think otherwise that we are still in in the midst of course cases rising in Europe, we have Orrin teams being imposed and and and borders also going up as well. So I I think that is. One of the people are just happy to be together and be listening to great ideas and and and I think also to be challenged. A little bit as well. We'll Tennessee little bit more about these challenges because people are coming together facing momentous challenges. What is it the world trying to focus on here? Well number, we just had a failed bomb nora failed bomb is the CEO of vitro. Of course, one of the world's most respected design brands I imagine in many many listeners right now are right likely sitting on a beatrice AU faux or chair or stool or in front of a desk. Here's a business, which is which is completely focused on the topic of what is going to happen to our city centers you know will work from home account for fifty percent of the workforce is going to be twenty percent. So we tackle that issue. It. With her and it was interesting. You know she was talking about are we may be moving into a world of spoke Yes. They'll be a main office in a city that will there almost almost More like owned and operated co working spaces where people come together. So that was one topic but then we just had a our he's the head of the the intermeshed. With the Red Cross and the and he was looking at at the current crises. The fact that we have a pandemic Emma but of course, get thirty messy parts of the world is he talks about this hasn't gone away and he's just a literally almost fresh off the plane from a mission in Mali, And Burkina into Hell region. What I find interesting is is the names of the people you've gathered that. We oversee have world of of of of vitro, but then. We have the head of security policy in the Swiss Federal Department of Defence Civil Protection and sport you mentioned now we have the head of the red. Cross. These are figures from the world of dealing with emergencies. Does that reflect the kind of times that we're in? Will it does because you're going to have an informed view about about risk and where the world is going. Then I think you do need people who are at the pointy end that that point he and might be how is a small but very economically successful. Country like Switzerland, how is it going to navigate geopolitical issues that wide Switzerland potentially need forty new fighter aircraft at a time when people talk of drones and and country, which is known as being neutral, and at the same time, you also want to hear from someone who's the head of risk for one of the biggest banks who can of course, apply some of these elements as well to a of. Course, the end consumer, the person who wants to go in byproducts from that that bank and how does that impact your day to day? How are we able to look ahead at the moment I mean is what we're talking about today stuff that we need to deal with at that pointy end in the next six months to one year or is there any sense yet that people can sink a little further ahead? Well I think actually North Alabama interesting because someone else oppose a similar question about short-term. What are you doing right now with marketing just how do you look at advertising? How do you promote a brand right now how do you stay top of mind and then what you do long term and her response with where we're a family company from Basel we have time and and so of course, we continue to develop an invest in great furniture and we and we take we take a long-term view. And yes you also have to be mindful of of the realities of up today as well. I mean is she's a little later on the conference to be talking about. The chiefs as a future when you talk about sustainability. And yesterday, the president of the European commissioners of a funder line was saying that we will rebuild our way out as a covert pundit DEMOC following an entirely green agenda. But when you have things like you know you're orderbook isn't as full as it should be your staff coming back from furlough and you're thinking, how am I going to make it through the next six months and people are saying actually you need to be green a you need to think about this you need to think about that. The priorities become quite quite challenging they. Absolutely. And I think that you know that that is one of the topics I mean, how much does you could talk about sustainability all you want but you know does. Your does your program, which of course has the best intentions is that we need to take a back seat for because you know that was going to involve retooling your factory. You knew that it was going to actually mean of course, upping the prices or accepting a more expensive supply chain, and maybe that has to get not kicking the grass necessarily, but it maybe has to drift out maybe three years I according to your plan and i. think that is also something we've heard you today is well, if if you're going to do these things aren't easy a lot of his. Let's walk at first before we talk and try to either talk green credentials are sustainability agenda and I think actually on that probably the one thing that I think is really coming out of the conference so far I'm as is. Being a by the let's let's let's invest in things that last And it really interesting to hear. You have MS failed I'm talking about you know if you go and buy an eames chair and I believe you're probably sitting in an email chair right now if I know it studio you're in. Those comes with a thirty year guarantee. Extraordinary and you know that has to be now and again you know is the entire chair perfectly sustainable no but it's not going to be in in five years either it's absolutely not in it's been comfortable for very long time finally looking into this afternoon. You're taking the floor talking to us about a few things that have caught your eye that you like and that if it's inspired you I mean we we have to be lifted out of this somehow what are you talking about them? Well. After lunch I I do a spin around the world and of course, the look at some things that yeah. Basic things that I that I experienced in everyday life, which which I think are are interesting that we we might need we might need more of so and I think probably one thing I was going to slide them. And you'll appreciate this. There's a lot of Austria and they're the world maybe needs a little bit. You know even though of course I'm standing in Switzerland at the moment. But if I if I look across the the mountains look across the border I know that Austria lies beyond and there's definitely whether it's brands whether it's the urban interventions that the world needs a little bit more Austria it full of wisdom of real and I'm just Sitting next to our affairs at a Christian mccue is half Australian I've never seen warranties thumbs up in all my days time. Thank you so much.

"Yeah. So what did I don't even know if you have this kind of conversation but do you do you ever have clinicians or? Folks are in the field in the trenches. So to speak that are worried about trays like you bring trays. I'm not gonNA have a job anymore. You know what that's listened to. Mike my vision number be really transparent which I always have bow-ties. I hope this will be live and it was the goes but but the reality is is my opinion is I don't I leaving the human being right I believe in therapist being a critical component I'd been through a northbound thirty myself or a diss or injuries all kinds of stuff you probably have to rough. That interaction man I believe in. At The Mayo manipulation and things along those lines that can't be done by technology today right? I also believe that. Just like any other profession that we have the top ten percent of the profession and we got the other presented at the bottom ten percent right or twenty percent that might just you know the eighty twenty rule or? Ways look at that but the reality is and I think that tracer can. Provide a more efficient and effective process. and. Delivery of of incur modalities or gently quantified outcome measures. Than, even your typical condition can, but it cannot do everything. It still takes brilliant conditions do that. Now with that said, I think that what we'll see moving forward with telehealth. Portrays. Aside tell how technology etcetera. I hope what happens is that we get the best clinicians working with patients. Are, your for lack of better term half asked clinicians and again, better right Buddy I. Go to the New Yorker. Me Over and again, it goes for any profession right? You weed out the bad. You keep the good. The good ones are going to always have a place, the good ones and the great ones they're they're a staple and they're going to provide incredible value. No matter what technology brings to the table but ultimately, we're GONNA be able to weed out the poor ones in have. Far Less you have ten collision aquatic maybe two or three if you use technology the right way. Yeah I always wants right? Yeah. Now, I tell that to clients all the time I'm like listen this stuff can be like a force multiplier I mean it can make your outcome. Super Super Good.

Apple reveals lower cost watch and updated iPad

"Maybe with the event's title, we should have known it would-be. Short. Tuesday's time flies event flew past at just over one hour, four pieces of hardware, basically, as well as new services and the services bundle we're focusing on hardware today. Surprising, absolutely, no one apple on Tuesday announced apple. Watch series sex running through the hardware. The S six system and package packs a new dual core processor based on the eighth thirteen bionic an iphone eleven it runs twenty percent faster than series five apps launch twenty percent faster. It's the first. Apple. Watch to include the you one ship, an ultra wideband antennas. The series six always on retina display is up to two point five times brighter outdoors than Apple Watch series five. Both the same all day eighteen hour battery life is before and can hit full charge in one point five hours. To features focused on during the devices introduction where the always on all tinder and the blood oxygen sensor. Not sure why always on is important for an intimidator unless you're worried about rock climbing in your sleep Apple says the always on ultimate provides real time elevation all day long by using a new more power efficient, barometric, ultimate her along with GPS and nearby Wi fi networks. This feature allows for the detection of small. Changes above ground level up and down to the measurement of one foot. And can be shown as a new watch face complication or workout metric. More life and death or the blood oxygen sensor and is associated APP. Apple says, series six measures the oxygen saturation of the users blood. So they can better understand their overall fitness and wellness. Oxygen saturation or S P o two represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body and indicates how well this oxygenated blood is being delivered throughout the body. And how it works is really cool according to Apple's presentation. The sensors are basically checking the color of the blood as it passes by. That color indicates how oxygenated the blood is, which is free again. Amazing. Speaking of colors for the to apple watches I've owned I've chosen brushed aluminum. It's easy to match with just about anything. But if you have a signature color or don't care about matching or. Planned to have plenty of apple watches on hand to put on your wrist Apple Watch now comes in the couple of colorful colors. For. The first time says apple a new blue color. Silver Space Grey and gold aluminum case options along with the product Red Apple. Watch. With exclusive matching, bright red bands stainless steel models are now available and graphite and an updated classic Yellow Gold Color Apple. Watch edition is available in natural and space black titanium. Series six also says Sayonara to ceramic while apple didn't mention it during the event. A piece from macrumors says, that is no more. As is the way the arrival of new apple watches also meant the arrival of new bands. This time though whole new bands, not just new colors. Sport Band makes way for so loop. No clasp. No buckle. Solo Lupus a continuous end stretchable ban design that says comes into materials, soft silicone and braided yarn. Nine sizes for those. Apples supposed to have a size guide on its site. Checking Apple side it looks like Sport Band is just making room not seeding the field. Both sport? Band and Solo loop available to order as of now, there's also said to be a first of its kind leather link that wraps around the rest held in place with flexible molded magnets. Nikewatch gets everything we've talked about already plus a new Nike face and new colors for the Nike Sport Band and Nike Sport Loop. Same goes for Apple Watch air MAS- as far as improvements the hardware it's stainless steel cases come and silver or space black paired with single or Dubna, tour styles and an assortment of vibrant new colors. Now about the only thing predictions got wrong for Apple Watch as E was its name. leakers had thought that that was shorthand that it'd be called something simple like apple. Watch. Apple Watch S E is the budget chronometers name. Well mid range chronometer Apple Watch series three is the true budget model still out there selling for one hundred, ninety, nine bucks. An apples press release apple CEO Jeff Williams was quoted as saying Apple Watch S E combines elements of the series six design with the most essential features of Apple Watch, all at a more affordable price. No Blood Oxygen Sensor and no, always on display. It does sport the always on all temperature though because apple is taking this sleep climbing thing seriously. Looking at the hardware sports the same size displays as the Apple Watch series five. The S., five system and package and dual core processor deliver performance that's up to two times faster than the Apple Watch series three. The S. E. Packs the fives haptic feedback for the digital crown, and that speaks and here's what the latest speaker and microphone in the watch line. Apple says, watch as e features the same accelerometer gyroscope. altimeter as Apple Watch series six and with the latest motion centers and microphone. It offers robust health and safety capabilities including fall detection emergency, SOS, International Emergency, calling, and the noise. APP. Now, if you decide, the six time is the charm that you're finally ready to buy Apple Watch. The one you buy probably won't have a charger in the box Lisa Jackson vp of environment policy and social initiatives at apple appeared during Tuesday's event extolling the environmental virtues of apples timekeeper. Sometimes. Jackson said it's not what we make but what we don't make that counts. That he's from seeing that says that when she said that apple won't be including USB adapters with this week's watches. As putting them free in the box consumes resources and adds to apple's carbon footprint. Interestingly, people who can afford to buy a charger without giving it a thought. Won't have to do so. A separate piece on chargers Napa Watch from apple insiders as apple, watch, addition, and Apple Watch. Will include a five watt power adopter. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman Kinda cried foul over that on twitter. Quoting his tweet looks like the Apple Watch titanium and Armez model still have the power adapter. So the more expensive versions keep it. makes it seem like it's less of an environmental thing and more cost driven? I can get thinking that as an immediate reaction. Here's the thing though you gotta figure apple sells at a minimum hundreds of entry level apple watches for every single edition or. Sold. Probably thousands. So even though it looks like catering to the wealthy and yeah, there may be a bit of that. Even though it looks like catering to the wealthy dropping chargers, millions of people probably don't need. Might make an environmental difference. No I saw way more than one piece saying not including chargers with Apple Watch is just the beginning. While, it has been rumored that the next round of iphones will also arrived without a charger. Apple doesn't seem to a pulled the chargers from the ipads that are also coming out this week. We'll get to those in a bit. Want to get an Apple Watch for your kid but not give them an iphone worried that mom or dad may have a slip and fall or ended up seriously directionally challenged apple has a plan to watch the whole family. Selling points as far as apple's concerned with family setup, you can stay connected with family members without an iphone from making and receiving phone and facetime audio calls to sending and receiving messages and emails, and even connecting with other Apple Watch wearers over walkie talkie. Parents have the ability to approve all contacts. So kids can safely use the communication features of Apple Watch, according to the company. The activity rings experience has been optimized for kids according to Apple. Emergency SOS is being pushes the benefit though. Apple Watch already does that. And finally school time and downtime or front and Center for children while optimizations focused on health for older relatives take precedence at the other end of the spectrum. Now the news that will make family setup less useful for many. It requires cellular models, of Apple, watch series four or later or Apple Watch S E running watch os seven paired with iphone six s or later running IOS fourteen. Apple also said that kids and older family members of the household using family set up, we'll have their own phone number through a separate cellular plan. So, while you don't need to get GRANDPA and the kids their own phones, each cellular watch will come with a tone cellular plan and. Associated Bill. Family setup goes live today and so by the way does watch Os Savon. that. was kind of surprise more on that a bit later. With such an emphasis on the health, it's not overly surprising that the new Apple Watch Slash Watch Os Combo brings a few new health studies. macrumors runs those down starting with an asthma study being run in conjunction with the Insurance Company Anthem and the University of California, Irvine. Second the peace says Apple has tied up with university health network and the University of Toronto to learn more about how Apple Watch metrics including blood oxygen can be used to manage heart failure. Finally macrumors says apple is partnering with investors at the Seattle, flew study at faculty at the University of Washington School of Medicine to explore how changes in blood oxygen and heart rate can be early signals the onset of influenza and Kobe nineteen. The watches by the way are ready to order now. Those opened on. Tuesday, they'll ship on Friday in the US Puerto Rico twenty seven other countries and regions.

Under Trump, US reputation hits rock-bottom: Pew global survey

"For the past three and a half years the united. States has not been very favorably viewed by other Western countries that's according to survey results from the Pew Research Center but a new study they paula shows that our reputation has taken even deeper nosedive just over the past year Jacob poster is at Pugh in Washington Jacob Pugh does a lot of surveys and this is not the first one about America's image what made this survey nick. Well, we've actually been doing surveys for twenty years now, and we've been tracking the international image of the US during that time period and in the current survey in two thousand and twenty, we're finding some the lowest ratings we've ever found among traditional allies of the United States in terms of US favorability including in Japan, the UK Canada you know more than four in ten have positive views of the United States and these are some of the lowest levels of favorability we've ever measured for the United States. The title of the survey says a lot. I think US image plummets internationally as most say country's handled corona virus badly. So how did your survey respondents about the US and the corona virus like what was one of the questions? Where we ask people on whether various countries including their own were doing a good job of dealing with the corona virus outbreak and on that question when we asked about it for the United States, no more than twenty percent and any of the thirteen countries that we surveyed said, the United States was doing a good job of dealing with the krona virus outbreak and that's different from what people told us about their own countries and most of the. Countries we surveyed people were actually fairly happy with how their own country had dealt with the outbreak. The there are places where the US image is seen more positively than other places. What country had the most people who thought the US was responding well to the coronavirus in terms of response to the coronavirus no country was over twenty percent. But when it comes to the US favorability, there are countries were a majority still have a favorable view of. The US, but that number has shrunk dramatically in the last year. South. Korea's one country where fifty nine percent have a favorable view of the US. But even there that's down almost twenty points from two thousand nineteen when seventy seven percent favourable view of the US

Why is coronavirus not killing as many people?

Why is coronavirus not killing as many people?

"Phenomen. Some good news in Australia seems to be that the number of deaths from coronavirus is dropping and infect yesterday Victoria had no recorded deaths for the first time in about two months. So is this reduction in deaths here in Australia like sign of things to come or is it maybe just a bleep? What you're seeing here is the end of the second wave in Victoria and it's just fantastic that we're seeing the numbers of people dying going right down. As. You say it might go up and down a little bit but it will be very very low from now on the death right dropping the right of people dying compared to the number of people who have the disease at all I. Think you've got to look overseas for that Rob van in Australia and it's not easy to calculate. As we've said, many times on Corona cast because it depends on the number of people the proportion of the population being tested, and we really only know the accurate infection fatality rates from things like cruise ships you know the Ruby print says the diamond princess and so on. Because the of testing vary so much from country to country but people who've looked at this still think that the death rate is roundabout point four point five percent, and that's roughly what we've been talking about. Maybe point six percent in the past it's likely that it staying roughly the same but in some countries that does Lucas if it's dropping a fair bit even relation to the testing if you look as the number of cases is increasing, but the death threat doesn't seem to be following suit what's happening there well, one of the reasons is almost certainly that older people are changing their behavior. Keeping themselves to themselves. So while there might not there might be parties in Malaga in Spain and people are going out and having a good time. It tends to be younger people doing that and older people are tending to socially distance that seems to be the way it's going in Europe and elsewhere. So there is a change in behavior and people who are the most vulnerable. The other reason it's changing is that they've got much better at treating moderate to severe covid nineteen disease. So the nursing people in their TUMMIES, they're not jumping into ventilation as quickly and they're using decks methods on which. Reduces mortality rates and people who are who've got severe disease by about twenty percent. So things aren't getting better in terms of the treatment and I think all those things together have reduced the mortality rate from covid nineteen at considerable cost. So part of it is a true reduction in death right? If we're getting better at trading them but I mean people conscious look themselves up forever. How long are they going to keep this self correction for? Well, it's crystal ball stuff. We don't know that but there is a little bit of evidence now that that locking themselves up isn't working as well because. As young people get these large numbers infections in some of the countries they're starting to take them home and their parents and grandparents are starting to get the disease. So that low mortality rate that you're seeing now immediately may well not last. We actually had a question on this from rob which we've kind of covered a little bit but I'm just in the interests of closing the loop rubs asking with the numbers of positive cases in France. Spain and so on. Increasing rapidly and few debts did the first wave just kill all the vulnerable are we seeing case Democ now instead of a pandemic? No. It's it's certainly didn't. You if you just look even in Sweden where it was really bad h care homes, luckily, it did not kill all the vulnerable there. Still plenty vulnerable vulnerable people alive and remember vulnerability can just.

Residential building giant posts surprising 3rd-quarter profits

"Going to start today with homebuilding Lenore corpse third quarter profits came in solidly higher than Wall Street was expecting I know shares are down a little bit but. I don't know Jason I mean Lavar gross margins are improving and the low interest rate environment certainly helps. Yeah it's absolutely helping and I mean we we've certainly seen signs that the housing market is not not only stable but really flourishing, which is kind of interesting to try to square in this in this. Time but but hey, that's that's housing right? It's it's one of those things that everybody needs. These results I was really impressed earnings were up thirty three percent on relatively flat revenue I. Mean Anytime you have a company that can do that I mean you got at least take note and try to figure out what they're doing to see if they can't. Keep on doing it. If you look at the numbers that deliveries of thirteen thousand, eight, hundred, forty tunes that was up just two percent they new orders. Of a little bit better than fifteen, thousand, five, hundred homes that was up sixteen percent. Dollar value of six point, three, billion dollars was up twenty percent and also a strong backlog backlog dollar value of close to eight billion dollars up four percent, and so all in all, what we're seeing what management noted is that the fundamentals in the housing market are very strong in that supported, of course, by record low interest rates. As, well, as a relatively undersupply, relatively continued undersupply of new and existing homes. You know anecdotally I will say like we're in the middle of refinancing our home here and you know what comes with refinancing a home as you get the appraisal to make sure that the value the home is, is there so that the bank and can? Crunch the numbers correctly in in certainly if it seems like valuations in our area are continuing to go up and I would imagine. They're seeing seeing that in a lot of places and then it'll be really interesting to see here as. The pandemic continues as companies start to reassess how they. are handling their workforce I. Mean If more folks start fleeing big cities for suburbia that absolutely has the potential to continue pushing up the demand for for these homes, which ultimately pushes up the prices put pushes up the. Performance for companies like Lenore, in being the largest home builder out there by revenue I mean certainly this another quarter of excellent.

How the Apple Podcasts Analytics help you understand your audience

"Welcome to podcasting where you learned the best tips and strategies to launch growing monetize your show. This week's question comes from Dan is Dan sky pilot faith quest podcast, and I have some questions about the apple podcast analytics. I love the buzz sprout analytics, use them all the time and find them very helpful. And I go to the apple podcast analytics and I find them really confusing. Sometimes, there's information about a particular podcast that is lacking on the screen. It seems inconsistent within its own podcast analytics as well as compared to what you all offer. Tell me what I should be looking out there. Should I even be using them? Is they're helpful information there. What are your recommendations thank you so much for your question. Dan So apple podcasts analytics offers some. Additional data points that they don't necessarily share with podcast hosting sites such as but sprout, and while having more information is usually really good thing. You kinda need to know what you're looking for and what you're looking at when you're an apple podcasts connect. So on this episode, we're GonNa, tell you in explain a little bit about why the data points might look a little bit different and then how to get the most out of apple podcast analytics. Let's talk about why you might see some download discrepancy between your hosting site and apple podcasts connect. So with a hosting site, they're going to show you across the board. How many listens in episode is getting Apple podcasts is not set up that way apple podcast connect is going to only show you information from listeners that meet specific set of criteria. The first is that the listener has to be using the most current version of the apple. PODCASTS at the second is that user also has given permission for their diagnostic information in their usage data to be on top of that, there is a seventy two hour lag time. So if someone listened to an episode that you posted on Monday, you're not gonna see that reflected in your stats until Thursday on top of that, if you get less than five people that meet that criteria, apple is going to register zero data for that episode so. The key here is if you want to find out information about how many listens and episodes getting, you're going to want to check in with your hosting site like bus browse going to show you how many listens to you over the course of all time as well as where maybe your audience listening from. You're not gonNA, get an accurate reflection of your download information from podcast connect. What is it good for? Actually there are three really good data points that podcast connect can offer you. The first is average consumption by episode when you land on the dashboard for your podcast scroll down until you see recent episodes, once you're there look at the stat in the far right column. The percentage you see here is the average amount of time your audience listening to each episode. For example, if you have a twenty minute episode with a seventy, five percent average consumption rating that means that people are listening to about the first fifteen minutes of that episode. For the next data point, you can see in podcasts connect episode listen duration click through to one of your episodes to see a graph showing you the percentage of listeners that are still tuned in at any point in your episode. If you're doing everything right, you should see a gradual taper from the beginning to the end of the episode. If you see a sharp drop in listeners, click on the portion of the episode and listen to it to figure out why so many listeners bailed at the same time. For example, there was an episode entitled finding the Best Podcasting. Microphone we noticed that people stopped listening around. The, nineteen minute mark when we went back and looked at that, we noticed that that was where we kind identified that podcasting microphone, and so people didn't really have a reason to keep listening. So what you WanNa do is really think about why people would drop off really explore that if that's that you've given them an answer and they don't need to listen anymore if it's more of a click bait kind title if you had an ad run in the middle reverse engineer, why everyone might disconnected at that point so that you can create more content that has people stay on for the duration of the episode. The last thing that you can learn from podcast connect is how many new listeners subscribed after listening to a particular episode blow the Listener Duration Graph for each episode, you'll see a role of additional statistics on the far right. You'll notice a percentage called devices, subscribed devices subscribed as the percentage of unique devices that subscribed and listening to the episode. For example, if you have an episode that has a twenty percent subscribe rate versus an episode that has a ninety percent subscribed rate, you're GonNa WanNa look at what you did to get ninety percent subscription because if you can do more of that, it will result in more podcast listeners. It's GonNa help you grow your podcast tremendously.

"Twenty percent of its twenty percent. All we're saying, we're saying about it to a special Lady Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She is gone. She stepped down from four K. That are nickname or no that means why. And spanning. Keno so weird. But why? So the rumor is that she's going to run for governor of Arkansas, Trump gave her a like ninety like well-wishing tweets and saying she should be. Congratulations. And I hope she runs for governor of Arkansas. She would be the best. Looking at the time period of this right now. It's june. We're in the middle of June, obviously, she would be on the twenty twenty ticket for governor, if she did it. It makes sense. If that's what she's gonna do. She hasn't ruled it out. So if she does it I think it'd be great me personally. I'm a big fan of her. I love to have her own show. Many times I just think she's very smart very intelligence well-spoken and she got absolutely fucking hammered. She had to celebrities all of it. Not only came out and did the exact same way to team affected professional because I mean, look, you look at never got credit for being the first female press secretary because they just make 'cause it was four Trump, so girls where just the getting talking about her. Looks celebrity wise feminists were going after her for looks and just calling her trash and being off. And then the coverage that they showed of her was horrific man, I talked about this pass and all all hammered home. Now, if you stack up the networks, if you were at the gym, or wherever else the way they were saturating her on other channels, or desalinating her to make her look awful, not only on television, but in the press, like every photo of her was just they made her look like this horrific onstar. Yeah. And she's a normal looking. Person, and you could see the difference in the way that they chose to show her it was awful man. So look good on her. Congratulations on, on doing a great job in an hopefully becoming the next governor of Arkansas. She's one of the brightest in the biz, and what she had to put up with was fucking insanity insanity. I mean because you think about it right? At look, we like Trump Trump's doing a pretty pretty damn good job. I'm not a fan of his Twitter activity. Sure. Imagine having to deal with those tweets every single day in explaining them, and that's why press, I think she was the shining star of the, the thus far of the administration because that was her. Mattis maddest was one of my favorites I was really pissed when he left that was on his own accord. But I mean, I think she had to deal with the biggest part that people don't like about Trump even people that like him. Right. So she had to field all of those situations, which again hats off. I mean my knees. He's in the Bahamas Atlantis for like two weeks. But like this couple's part, not eating. Yeah. Taking edibles getting her hair braided, whatever she wants in this world. Can you tick break? Yeah. Let her take a break skiing. I can't think of a more stressful job on on the planet. I, I was just like to how is she still doing this? And after everything, again, looks wise and things that they go after with women. Like I was just like how is she still doing this? It's insane. That is strength rate there. Yes that is into deal with the job. She had to deal with, and then the other side of it with the people attacking her and her family on public restaurants, social media, and talking about her weight. Her looks everything else every single day during this just waiting for one little slip up. So anytime she would speak. It's like they're just waiting for one wrong. Word. I mean and she didn't really slip up. You know what I mean? Like she was she was on. As you know. It was trending yesterday by hashtag by Felicia, the left just fucking sucks..

Did you make that suggestion online? I admit it a tip to you guys. I'm not sure. Okay. You because I saw that. And that was very interesting strategy to not actually end up with that store card. You really don't wanna have. And at the same time get the discount, right? And I I use it to get vantage of purchasing brands that don't allow the merchants to offer discounts. So like certain brands, you know, you have to basically use their discount. So you can kind of take advantage of discounts on top of sales and with Rams that don't allow certain stores to get discounts on their products. And so I'm curious is that something that you've done more than once at a single retailer is at a one time thing you can do. I tried it again at the same retailer swimming. It was a one time only thing, but I'm curious to try it again. All right. Well, keep posting and keep us away.

And so what that does is your you're it's it's much more feasible. You know, we talk about the economics associated with going with electric Asian in in all of that. I mean, the infrastructure issues are having already in California, you have a long-standing infrastructure of natural gas within all of our states. And so you're able to utilize these assets that are already there in kind of bridge the gap, and then there's a whole nother discussion. I won't take a bar the time, but with the power to gas transition, which there's ways for you to even utilize the benefits they're having the things that's going on the power side from the solar and wind generation at any of that excess capacity to stop being used right now by the greed, you're able to a process collar Letcher electrolysis to convert in pull out the methane from those processes stored our natural gas infrastructure, that's already there. And then whenever you need to be able to fill the gaps and get more power production, and what's being done by the solar wind, then you can use this carbon neutral source for natural gas. So it's kind of a full circle and different things. You can do to truly be more efficient. Yes storage is kind of the ticket. If you can get to the point where we can store too. So then during the day when you use them solar. You can store that natural gas and use it at night. Yes. That's great. Let's talk a little bit about planning new facility projects and all the things that apply to that. Okay. So as Michael touched on, you know, for sustainability standpoint, you know, we've looked to see in the orangey. There's a lot of other things that we look at you know, as a company and when planning new facilities that goes into solar canopies mounted on parking structures rainwater collection, zero scape, software, control LED lighting.

"You know, whatever makes Tackie's usually, you know before people to work, it's like twenty percent of their life rather than than focusing on a twenty percent at the majority of their life. The rest of their life is kinda improvised, you know, it's whatever comes their way rather than actually engineering the kind of life, the kind of business that they want in. Again, back to honesty, honoring their honesty, having the courage to follow it. Now, how do you take that first step? So when women come to you, how do you help them to push pass that fear of getting started like to actually just take one little step. I think you said it right there is still little like just take as in bishop's women. Sometimes it's hard for us to take little steps or allow ourselves to take the little step. And so we spend months or even years trying to pursue the big step, trying to take the big leap immediately or trying to do a whole three sixty. Without realizing just self sabotage. I can't say how many times I've seen it. You know, months and months go by. And you look that you haven't done anything at all because you're just like, it's also pricing will I know I can do better yet. We know that you can do better, but what are you going to do right now? You know, potential is cool, but what are you gonna do? What are you really going to do like? And that's not to downplay yourself or play small is that sometimes you just have to play small in the beginning to play big. And that's the one of the biggest things I learned as ambitious myself in order to move forward. I have my big vision in Mina, have these big steps in mind, but I'm not going to. Stay stagnant. So even if I have to take a tiny mini step, I'm not gonna play. I'm not gonna downplay myself. I'm still going to give myself a Pat on the back and be very proud of myself or moving forward because that's going to create a domino effect right there. So I think the main thing when if you feel stuck, if you feel like you're just going in circles, it's about taking some on of step like any step in the direction that you're scared of that you're fearful of or that you're doubting just do it, make it really small, make it lack call it laughably small, many step. So make it laughably small words, so small that you just can't talk yourself out of it. And of course, get some accountability. Maybe tell someone announced it, you know, schedule it invested ahead of time so that you have to do it whatever as extra that extra pull that extra push. But the thing is, you know, starting small to go big love that in then how do you. Then turn that into habits rates. I've taken one step and now about to retreat, so my comfort place under the covers but make it a habit. Right? It's really like Israeli mindset and becoming comfortable. It sounds so cliche really becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable looking at it, looking at it as a sign that you are, what you have to do. Many of us are. We don't feel like our, we did it yesterday. We'll just we'll just go back into it tomorrow to think like that, but it's it's during those times that you really have to push its during those times that you gotta do it anyway in its remembering that the more you do it, the more automatic it's going to become. So if you keep that in mind, you're more motivated to move forward even when you don't want to because you know that there's nothing wrong with you. It's not that you're lazy, it's that you're rewire. During your brain, your reprogramming habits and automated habits, unconscious habits, thoughts that have become so you know, ingrained in your personality and your ways that you're going to have to put a little extra effort..

They wanna see stability. Okay. For your folks out there who are like, you know, you know, pro credit cards and pro. You know, I have a credit score, blah, blah, blah. You do not need a high credit score to get a house. Okay, either need to have good credit or no credit. Okay. This is a misconception that a lot of people don't understand. So when a mortgage company is looking at you to see if you qualify for a loan, look a couple of things looking at. Okay. Yes, your credit. But as a small percentage, looking at your debt to income ratio to looking at stability, looking at your assets, how much assets do you have? Because if you default, that's what they're going after. So your individual who has a lot of assets in the stock market, the you'll be a likely candidate. You do not need a credit score, high credit score to get a a house with a do is they have different types of mortgages out there, which is what they used to. Back in the day which they call manual underwriting ambassador. What that is the the mortgage company does not look at your credit score. They look at your underlying assets in they say, okay, based off of your income based off of your historic look at how often have you paid your utility Bill to look at, okay, this person's consistent with the utility bills. This person has a decent job is person has assets. We will manually underwrite you a mortgage. Okay.

"We'll be hit with the twenty percent long term capital gain qualified dividend tax bracket but there is a pass through feeling to a trust like that when money is transferred down to the individuals that tat's will flow through with them so if the trust sells yes today the trust realizes the game but then when it files its and then if the money is transferred out to the beneficiaries the trustee basically he's going to issue what they call a k one to each of the beneficiaries saying this happened on your behalf now that transfer of assets has to happen in the same tax year as the sale but it's really easy to deal with and now the beneficiaries even though they received cash they still get to pay tax on the sale that happened at the trust level that realized that gain so it's really easy you just have to follow it but it won't be taxed twice it just so so or cash to the individuals make sure you do it the same year that the sale of the stock options so that you can transfer the tax down to those individuals as well so to be clear is it better to to sell the stock within the trust and then transfer cash or is it better to doing it in the same year if you're going to give them the cash anyway do it all of the same year it'll it's a it's a less of it can't be more of a tax but it's less of it can't be less of a tax at the individual rate yeah his whole problem here is is is because of because of the trust and the right now this is not an issue with living trust now we should make we should make this clear because i think we we did mention this as an ear revoke able trust and a living a living tried where there's league one individual involved i see a single individual or a now surviving spouse has a living trust while they're alive they can change it jet living trust that's the whole idea it's living you know you can change it you can manipulate that you can get rid of it the owner of it the what they call the grandeur can do anything they want with it pretty much but once that person dies generally then becomes hard and fast the the what's going on in that trust is now locked in stone you you can't change the beneficiaries you can't change the way it's supposed to be paid out the individual who set it up set up what was going to happen they reserve the right to change it during their lifetime once they're gone now it's now it's an irrevocable trust what how does this you're supposed to get a new tax id number for that trust and it becomes its own entity its own tax entity and how you account for just like a partnership really at that case trust or an estate and you get to manipulate the taxes or deal with the taxes as they fall and that's the way it is we can talk more be trust can get complicated just understand that if you're doing what's called an irrevocable trust me that you're you're really surrendering all ownership rights to that whatever it is that you put in the trust irrevocable yes you can't undo it i things can be a little bit different all right now we have to break for the bottom of the hour we're gonna come back with more stephen centennial colorado we have kathy and tiger oregon you wanna give us a call eight seven seven planner p l a double n e r this is bucket strategy investing recently we.
