Fiat Chrysler and PSA Group Merge With Eyes On the Future
"And this business. Wars daily on this thursday january fourteenth. Here's a word you hear a lot in january reset you know out with the old in with a new new year new me okay. I'll stop it with a new year cliche now. But two automakers are taking the opportunity to reset to a new level fiat chrysler and the psa group will officially merge and become still lantis this weekend. It's a move years in the making and it's go well. I survive second catch up now. All carmakers suffered in twenty twenty new car. Sales declined factories were shuttered. An inventory stalled all thanks to covid nineteen but fiat chrysler soon to be one. Half of sta lantis suffered a lot. It's us sales. Were down seventeen percent compared to twenty nineteen and when other automakers saw slight gains in their fourth quarters as the year ended fiat. Chrysler saw more read so beyond brushing off a disappointing year. The newly minted sta lantis has its work cut out for it as it contends with the likes of similarly sized general motors fiat chrysler and psa may eight million vehicles a year combined that gives it a slight edge on gm which sold about seven point seven million cars in two thousand nineteen but gm has something to lantis doesn't significant presence in china while gm sold more than three million cars in china in two thousand nineteen fiat chrysler in psa sold only about a quarter of a million combined. That gap isn't sitting well with psa chief executive carlos taveras who became ceo to lantis. He's made it clear that year in up for the chinese market is one of still antennas. Top priorities device explained. No global car company can afford not to be in the largest car market in the world. And there's another slice of the market that may prove crucial forced to lantis electric vehicles. Fiat chrysler did announce pre merger that they were making an electric pickup truck last year but it was a bit late to the party. Gm ford and of course tesla were already at work on similar models whilst atlantis sets its priorities. Gm says it plans to spend twenty seven billion dollars over the next five years to make electric cars and trucks still. Antennas hasn't
Elon Musk is now the richest person in the world, passing Jeff Bezos
"Elon. Musk became the world's richest person yesterday. he started off. Twenty twenty one with twenty seven billion dollars which is a lot of money but obviously jeff bezos became the world's richest man history back in two thousand eighteen so elon. Musk starts the year seven days ago. Twenty seven billion tesla's stock sores. Yesterday he he becomes worth one hundred. Eighty five billion. In seven days six days he went from twenty seven billion to one hundred and eighty five billion. What does that owns a whole lot. More because because his wealth is directly tied to tesla. Stop no it's sort for for whatever reason now. He just found himself a lot more money. So what does that mean. does that mean that. He's gonna sell his stock and make it. I don't know how it works. So he's worth that much money. Yeah would he can't just put his hands on that much right he no. He would have to sell his stock and he's not gonna do that. So means nothing. I don't know if it means nothing because it'll fall probably will. It probably will but that's pretty impressive. One hundred eighty five billion
FTC sues to break up Facebook, sell off assets like Instagram and WhatsApp
"Let's talk a little more about this. Big lawsuits got all right. The us federal trade commission filed a lawsuit on wednesday allegedly that facebook illegally maintains quote. It's personal social networking monopoly though Excuse me through a years long course of competitive conduct. That's a direct quote. Evidence was gathered in cooperation with the attorneys general of forty six states. The district of columbia and guam specifically called out as anticompetitive practices or as those practices are the acquisition of instagram and whatsapp an api restrictions on software developers Ftc is asking the court to order facebook to sell off. What's app and instagram. Cheese prohibit anti-competitive conditions envelope burs and require notice and prior approval of future mergers and acquisitions similar lawsuit was filed by new york attorney. General lati- let Excuse me latifah james. I believe i said joined by the same states and territories. That is a hardcore lawsuit. Tom merritt gigantic. Yes it is i. Let's just say up front. The chances of them actually getting a court even if this went all the way to the supreme court to agree to make facebook divest itself of instagram. And what's up very low not impossible but it's low so you know. Don't don't get too excited if you if you want instagram and whatsapp to be spun out. It's doubtful that will happen What they'll probably is some kind of reparations. Kind of fine. Maybe a change in business practices. I imagine they could have a good chance of getting facebook to have to agree to the notice and approval of future mergers and acquisitions. That part does seem likely but it will be interesting to follow this case and see where it goes because it was. It's a long shot to get this and so a lot of people weren't sure if the ftc would even bring this kind of charge that they might go after a smaller remedy but they're basically accusing facebook of buying instagram to neutralize a direct threat in instagram and make it more difficult for other social networks to compete. Kind of the same thing with what's up. They they wanted to neutralize. Whatsapp is a threat to facebook and make it harder for other messaging apps to get in there that was gonna be real hard to to prove though because we have a lot of competitive messaging apps out there so it doesn't seem like they've really suppressed the the market for that and then the the i think where i think you have the most fertile ground to get a court to agree which is the restrictions they put on third party developers on on what they can and can't do not only on facebook but if they use the api for example. The ftc uses this in their press. Release in two thousand thirteen twitter launched vine which let users shooting share short video segments and in response facebook shutdown the api that would have allowed vine to access friends through facebook. That is an anticompetitive practice whether they're abusing their monopoly to do it or not. We'll be the question. The court will decide the big story and the kind of happen mid day today. We were all sort of scrambling around like okay. This this is actually a big story. You know a lot of people are like this is a really big deal because look the. Us is going to dismantle facebook. Instagram and whatsapp arguably being. You know the you know the the prized possessions facebook. Besides its own news feed itself and like you said tom. It's highly unlikely that that's going to happen. Is going to be tied up in court for another few years probably But does it set a standard for how facebook and any company that would dare to get his anywhere as big as facebook in the future to not be able to gobble up. you know. i don't know. What did they pay one billion for instagram back in the day when thirteen people working at instagram. Kind of thing because instagram was big and facebook has a history of replicating kinda cool trendy stuff that that works. I mean look at real on instagram right. Now it's tiktok competitors you know it's all it's all kind of the same thing just to see what sticks and has had a oftentimes not a lot of success. Buying the company works for facebook a lot better than trying to replicate some sort of cool feature that then people have to learn to use now. You could argue. That is why the big weather big targets on this because what's app and instagram are notably gigantic runaway successes than. They were already heading that way when they were acquired. And you could also argue that. Got him at a bargain basement price. But maybe that's why they're being targeted decide with facebook. And i'm not really doing that. But for devil. Devil's advocate reasons. I would say yeah. This is a huge target. They have billions of users on their main service and then these secondary products are huge for them and they would be standalone gigantic companies on their own. That we would talk about individually if there weren't already owned by them so it makes sense that they're the target but the idea of buying up your competition to limit their impact on your business and grow it out. Separately isn't new and they're not the only ones doing this but maybe they're doing it. The most successfully and the question isn't just as a monopoly. It's not enough to save face because of anomaly you have to say it is a monopoly and it abused its position as a monopoly to reduce competition. Sometimes of an -opoly is perfectly legal. It's not illegal in the united states and most countries to be a monopoly. It's usually illegal to cause harm because you are a monopoly. And that's where. I think they're gonna have a problem showing harm yes. There isn't another few. No flicker is not doing well. And when they bought instagram that sort of dominated the image market. But to your point. Sarah the reason they keep adding stories and then reels is instagram is trying to fend off competition from snapchat and tick tick tock so there is competition. There is competition pushing instagram to change. And i think facebook can demonstrate that. Yeah maybe maybe zuckerberg said something unwise in an email once but there is competition out there. Same what's up there's telegram and signal and we chat and and how many other messaging services out there so i think it's hard to show that they are reducing competition in the marketplaces for those two. That's why i'm less bullish on the idea of them winning over a court to make them get rid of them on the other hand the developers stuff like they essentially killed vine. And i think they're they might have a better chance of getting facebook on that one do you do you think the Slack is worth twenty. Seven instagram's just to put it in numbers slack. Yes this lack. Twenty seven billion dollars as opposed to a billion. That's what i'm saying. Everything's billions and billions of dollars now. Yeah five star wars. Anyway i would love for there to be some sort of okay. Let's say we go forward and maybe facebook is find which is likely And is it sort of said going forward. He can't just gobble up companies that That you deem as a future competitor mall and then make it your own and then you reap the reward. So what what do we get to is if you have this x. amount of users you can't buy a company that has x. amount of users that is on the up and up or it has to be for not too much of a certain price so that the company doesn't willingly to you there so many factors in play i i i do wonder how this goes. There are laws. These laws will be tested in court. Now which is you can't buy a thing when the only reason you're buying it is to put the competitor out of business. It you there has to be a valid business reason for buying it and i think facebook can show that i you know. I look back at the microsoft case where they wanted to break up microsoft. They never broke up microsoft. They just put in some remedies. And i think yeah. That's courts are very reluctant to break up a company. You have to really show that it caused harm. And i just don't see it there
Salesforce to buy Slack in deal worth $27.7 billion
"Oh well here Her is all is well. Where you are and all is well. If you work for you manage salesforce or indeed slack. Yes indeed is not a time when you expect to hear about mega-deals but that's what we are hearing sales force. The business software company is buying slack. The business messaging software for twenty seven billion dollars. Now if you're not familiar with slack it's not just a tool for remote working but one whose use will have surged sophistications text messaging for business because like a text messages. Conversation stays in one place. Whenever you're having a conversation with a person or you can have a conversation with a group people about a particular subject imus designed to avoid you having an endless slew of messy email chains in your inbox. We can't find in formation. You want something you've talked about with somebody in the past. It's a good fit for salesforce. Because obviously they're already specialists in business. Software facts the company's chairman and chief executive orders a match made in heaven on what was interesting about it is slack although its use has surged during the pandemic people working from home as a company as a standalone company wasn't seen as actually being able to capitalize on that because unlike other services such as microsoft teams it does the same thing but it also tried to lure people into the microsoft ecosystem and sell them of things. Salesforce wasn't selling people over things for now under the ownership of salesforce will be able to do so not so sales going
Bill Gates looks back at ‘The Road Ahead’ after 25 years and some hit-and-miss tech predictions
"Is sometimes cop to the criticism that on this show. We tend to focus on the horse race between the big tech companies. Who's up who's down. Who like roadblocks might be a godzilla of the future and who like maybe intel seems to be sliding towards being an irrelevant dinosaur of the past. The way i like to think about it is that we're covering the evolution and creative destruction of capitalism in real time keeping score of who's the richest person in the world is probably less relevant to that task but only obliquely so for what it's worth. It's worth noting that elon. Musk has overtaken bill gates to become the world's second richest person behind. jeff bezos. Quoting the verge. The tesla ceo net worth now sits at around one hundred twenty eight billion dollars after increasing by one hundred billion dollars this year alone. There is a sizable gap between. Musk and the number one spot which is currently held by amazon ceo. Jeff bezos who has reported net worth of around one hundred and eighty two billion dollars in january. Musk ranked thirty fifth on the list. Bloomberg reports musk's rapid ascent up. The list has mainly been driven by tesla share price. The car company currently has a market cap of almost five hundred billion dollars after starting the year at under one hundred billion dollars. The guardian reports that tesla has the highest market cap of any car company in the world despite producing a fraction of the cars of more established automakers. This year it expects lose. Five hundred thousand cars compared to around ten million for a company like toyota around three quarters of musk's net worth consists of tesla shares according to bloomberg but musk's other major venture space x has also seen recent success last week the company transported for astronauts to the international space station aboard. It's crew dragon spacecraft that follows the company's first crewed flight to space in may of this year bill gates sat atop the billionaires index for years until he was overtaken by jeff bezos in two thousand seventeen bloomberg notes. That gates would probably have a higher net wealth right now if he hadn't given so much money to charity including the over twenty seven billion dollars. He's donated through the bill and melinda gates foundation since two thousand six gates. Moscow have had some high profile disagreements this year in september. Musk said gateshead quote no clue about the viability of electric trucks after the microsoft co-founder said that electric semi trucks along with electric cargo ships and passenger jets will probably never be practical earlier. This year gates told cnbc that musk should avoid making big predictions about areas. He's not familiar. After the tesla's ceo downplayed the risk of the covid nineteen pandemic. Musk overtook facebook. Ceo mark zuckerberg last week when he became the third richest person on. The billionaires index zuckerberg has since fallen to fifth in the rankings. After he was overtaken by french businessman bernard arnault and quote

Some Canadians have made it home. Others havent.
"Are you there. I'm always here Jordan. Where where am I? GonNa go fair enough. Well it's the first day of the work week was your weekend any different from your week. aside from not making this podcast not really. I mean. I've just been kind of cooking and taking long walks no complaints. Can you even tell days apart right now? No I usually ask about three times a day. What Day is it today? I keep thinking that I'm supposed to take my garbage out Because every day feels like garbage day now for whatever that's worth but here's a question. Have you felt lucky over the past little while I don't know about lucky of definitely felt very fortunate? I've been trying to look on the bright side of things I mean. I'm very fortunate to have been able to work from home as soon as needed and my partner and I keep each other company. Why have you felt? I really have for whatever it's worth you know when we do research for the show. I tend to dig into the worst stuff. The reports out of Italy Reports from frontline hospital workers in Canada and in the United States and it really drives home the point and this weekend we were reading and listening to stories of Canadians who found themselves abroad when Justin Trudeau said. Hey this is serious. It's time to get home yet. That's that's easier said than done. Yeah and I traveled in February and I think about it. Now you know if it had been a couple of weeks later at the time everybody said it was fine to go a couple of weeks later. I would have been in that same situation. Yeah and some people right now are stuck where they are and today We're GONNA talk to somebody who just made it home under the gun barely and We'll hear from somebody at the end of today's episode. Who is not as lucky? And she'll quickly tell you where she has her situation's very fluid So we wanted to get her information there at the very least but quickly for people who still do know what day it is. Can you tell us where we are? Clara's the quote Unquote workweek. What ever that means now begins while the latest from Canada's Health Minister Patty. Hi Do. Is that if you're back from a trip and you've been told to self isolate and you don't do that. You could face a big penalty. It is critically important especially for those returning home now to ensure that they follow this public health advice that we're giving them and the advice will be not just advice if if we if we need to take stronger measures we will and that actually happened in Quebec. A woman who tested positive for the Koran virus was arrested for violating quarantine order because she was out walking her dog. Prime Minister Trudeau says between Monday and Wednesday. There will be more than thirty flights bringing Canadians. Who are abroad back home. And we are now seeing the first case of Cova. Nineteen in the north. It's in the Northwest Territories. And they've now shut down their border to all nonessential travel uh some. Mp's are being called back. On Tuesday to adopt the emergency measures that were announced last week. Those include the twenty seven billion dollar fund for direct support and the fifty five billion dollars to help business liquidity through tax deferrals as of Sunday evening. One thousand four hundred and thirty six cases of Covert Nineteen in Canada with twenty one deaths. When you find yourself in a situation like our guest today did of course you second. Guess yourself a little bit. Why did I go? How did I end up? Here what could I have done differently? It's natural but I think you have to remember as fast as this thing. Seems like it's moving now a few weeks ago unless you are really paying attention. It didn't seem that it was going to get bad. And besides buck once. You're stuck you're stuck. There's no point in questioning how you got here. You just want to get home and to do that. You might need the help of the government and as we know government. Can't help everyone right now today. I can announce we're working with Canadian airlines to make commercial flights available for as many Canadians who are stranded as possible. Now we won't be able to reach everyone over going to do our best to help those. We can't nothing is really guaranteed anymore and so you take your chances like today's guest Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story. Julia Morales is a student at McGill University in Montreal and today she is in Montreal and safe so first of all. Juliane glad to hear that. Thank you go out to you back your home now. Yes where were you last week? So last week I was in Morocco originally I was will kind of just traveling everywhere and ended up in ten years from where I was supposed to take a flight back to Montreal. Tell me how you got there. Why were you there? When did you go that kind of stuff? So Group of four other students and a professor and I left from McGill University on February twenty seventh to leave for Morocco on a geological field trip. We were going to go steady the geology of the area and sort of understand what processes lead to the current geology of the region and supposedly for two weeks however we were not able to board our flight out of Morocco because of travel bans that were then instilled by the government. What were you thinking? And I don't mean this in a bad way. But what what were you thinking as the flight approached? And you knew you were going. Were you worried Had you heard anything from the government or anywhere else advising you know actually going into the trip I think. Any of the stresses kind of just related to the usual stress of traveling. Do we have everything we need. Is Everyone have a tenth? Is Everyone have hiking boots Nothing related to the extra corona virus because as we had seen on government of Canada website about point. Morocco is very safe. There were no cases or I believe zero. The two case cases of corona in the country and Italy had yet to undergo this boon which we now have seen the past two weeks So we felt quite confident in going to the country and being safe in coming back. Tell me about when that situation changed in Morocco. What were you hearing? What was happening there so every night as we would have dinner we would actually go on the corona world meter website and see what the the statistics were saying about the spread of the virus and even until the last day we were supposed to be their only about. I believe eighteen. Total cases in the country So we weren't too concerned about our state in the country more was going on in the neighboring countries such as Spain particularly Because obviously we're seeing that it was exploding all over Europe and immediately saw that the political response in all these countries with started closing down borders. We started to get concerned about the fact that we may not be able to return but up until then we have not heard anything from our airline or the government in Rocco or the Canadian government. So we weren't we again. We're not too concerned about the idea that we were going to be able to come back home. Tell me about making the decision to try to get home. What happened and what you do that. Yes so we arrived at Tangiers airport as we were supposed to and as we walked into the airport we received the news that essentially Morocco was closing. Its borders to about twenty countries. It was GONNA stop international flights in and out of twenty countries and among those were Canada. Which is quite surprising because the USA was not on the on that list in the US has many more cases of corona virus than we do and at that point we immediately started looking for other flights out of the country and we managed to book another one through Qatar And three days later we were supposed to cash played. We found out that Qatar was also closing. Its borders and would not allow us to fly through there so this all began a whole spiral of trying to find any flights out. What did you do but did we do what we kept? Trying to find. More flights we booked another flight out of Casablanca on Foulon really quickly counseled expedia actually called us about like a few hours. After having both in told us that the play it would not be going out. We booked another flight with Air Canada which then got cancelled. We booked another flight through Royal Moroccan. That also cancelled we for pretty much just desperate to find anything that would get us out of the country so our original flight was supposed to go through. Casablanca before then heading to Montreal. So you decided to take a flight to Casablanca since it's like a major flight hub in the country and we figured that our chances of getting a flight out would increase if we were in that city and so we just kept trying once we arrived in Casablanca airport. We tried to make sure if our flight would actually be going out. And the people at the counter told us that they couldn't even find our
Canada's response to COVID-19
"Candidate now has six hundred and fifty six cases of the current a virus with nine deaths seven in British Colombia one in Ontario and the latest one in Quebec Prime Minister Justin. Trudeau made an announcement promising eighty two billion dollars to help Canadians in these times. Our government is taking extraordinary measures. The measures were announcing today will provide up to twenty seven billion dollars in direct support to Canadian workers and businesses less fifty five billion to meet liquidity needs of Canadian businesses and households through tax deferrals to help stabilize the economy combined. This eighty two billion dollars in support represents more than three percent of Canada's GDP so workers who don't qualify for employment insurance can apply to receive the emergency support benefit every two weeks for fourteen weeks that can include people who have to stay home because of the current virus either because they are self isolating or maybe they're taking care of someone else. British Columbia and Saskatchewan have joined the list of provinces who have declared a state of emergency the US and Canada have banned non essential travel between the two countries. This will not affect trade.
Sanders on when he would use military action
"There shows a Bernie Sanders continues to skate without answering any tough questions despite the fact that he is just a personal horrible views it is just a source of endless endless insanity to me that the Democratic Party is preparing to nominate this human being it's insane the man is a walking a coexist bumper sticker is no Rothman over commentary but if the man is George McGovern exit more communist yeah let let me give you a couple of examples so Bernie Sanders let's check out his Twitter account his Twitter account is it basically AOC without the sparkling what it really is there's something he tweeted out it it's it's incredible it's incredible that this human being is taken seriously by people is unbelievable she tweets out our military is larger than these countries combined China hundred ninety one billion dollars has been flagged he flies I can actually identify China hundred eighty one billion dollars Saudi Arabia's seventy eight billion dollars France sixty one bit well as it is that which one is the vertical and first of the horizontal I Frances fifty two billion dollars I believe transferable Japan is forty eight billion dollars Great Britain fifty four billion dollars Germany forty billion dollars South Korea thirty nine billion dollars Brazil twenty seven billion dollars and that would be Italy twenty seven billion dollars Russia is sixty one billion thank you have a missile a Russian flag C. and I'm not working for Pune so what if we invested in human needs to care for one another instead what we invested a human needs to care for one another instead okay first of all I'm historical level I think it's a fairly good thing that the United States military is larger than Germany Japan Italy combined that seems like that's probably a good idea by just looking at some history but I'm very happy that the United States military is hegemonic but that's a very good thing Bernie is such a flaming communist it is like what if we book our entire military budget and we used it to pay off free child care and we just what do we really need a military so large we really need a militant and the answer is yes to stop people from killing us and attacking us and wrecking our interest the man is he's using the song imagine as a campaign platform I'm I turn does no countries it's not hard if you will try but nothing to live or die for adults only I thank hello how are you what the hell is wrong with you people and then he tweets this out together we're going to end the greed of the billionaire class I'm just a question to one question which is more greeting people will not cost you know people who created a business and then sold lots of product into lots of voluntary transactions and employed tens of thousands of people that provide products to presumably millions of people and a million people's lives easier or the octogenarian communist was down zero useful things his entire life except **** off the chief of the state and a billion or taxpayer and sponsor his wife for positions for which is utterly unqualified who is greedy I'm so sick of these of these people suggesting that true altruism wise and sucking off the teach of people actually burn is insanity this is nothing new in my income level I've been saying the same things as I was making like fifty grand a year okay I totally get it this is it this is an absolute it's absolute nonsense people buy into this it turns out that and we should not be a political platform that's all this is the greed of the billing or but when you become greedy stressors question like earnings of million did he become more greedy when his net wealth went to a million and one when I took her to slip up suddenly became greedy or is it the truth that is the founders understood all human beings have the capacity for greed and all human beings have the capacity for altruism and all human beings have the capacity for sin and all human beings have the capacity for decency but according to Bernie because a materialist Marxist he believes that as you get richer you get more greedy and therefore actual saintly nest rise in being a sponge right if you're if you're burning you've never done a useful thing you're like you're actually good you're going because you never been greedy doctrine or standard taking other people's money for doing nothing but you're not greedy because the only measure greed is by your material circumstance the richer you are the more greedy you are there for the poorer you are the less greedy you are and your personal activity doesn't come into this at all this is the person that you guys want a nominee for president all right sure

Make the Planet Your Valentine (Chocolate, Jewelry + More)
"Hey Liza how's it going. Are you happy weekend and Yeah Day. It is almost Valentine's said husband's prepared Like no not at all. Oh man you know. My husband was a decent job in terms of that but I mean he and I are very much or very millennial like we very much like to spend money on experiences and all that type of thing so he'll occasionally get me flowers We try not to make a big deal out of it but I think really one of the reasons why we wanted to get this episode out. There was because we just keep having more and more questions. I mean as this podcast uncast grows which were so thankful for We get new questions in our inbox in our instagram. DM's every day and a heat. People have a lot of questions around around how to make sure they. Are you know participating in holidays like they normally do because they love to their loved ones expected but they also want to make sure or that they are doing right by the planet so where I think. Valentine's Day is a great way to get in there. Yeah so my favorite stats as usual. Valentine's nine days actually pretty be. I didn't realize how bigoted in terms of consumer spending last year In the US alone with spend over twenty billion dollars on Valentine's on stage and this is actually expected to grow to twenty seven billion dollars thirty thirty two percent growth. It's huge and on average consumers fighting to spend spend almost two hundred dollars one hundred ninety six dollars per person huge right after lot. That is for sure. So that's that's how important this episode. So hopefully you have to do just starting to think that's okay and we got you. This packed with actionable steps for you in terms the Paul. You can make a Valentine's Day just more along the lines of people asking US questions. We had one of our brightly scouts. Laura Beyeler who who actually asked us a few questions about chocolate because they need chocolate is something that people know to kind of expect and love and Valentine's Day and If you're not familiar with brightly scouts it's it's actually our ambassador program the only have for brightly echo. You can join listeners. If you're interested We gather a group of like minded change makers together. Are We have a slack. Channel where people are networking. They're finding new. Friends are fine on partners for different objects will yeah exists so fine and of course yes we. For in honor of participation we give people access to free products and events all sorts of fun things so it definitely Ah Yeah mentorship calls as well so yeah check it out and but any even if you're not our scout member give us a shout out you can record a voice message and ask US questions. Do I have a question for you today. About Chocolate I know that many big chocolate companies like Percy's Mars and camp worry have promised for close to twenty years now to in child labor and Dan to be more sustainable practices to make all of these positive changes really to no avail So I just think about that during holidays survey consumerism driven Like Valentine's Day where these companies make billions of dollars and I know that are spending as consumers immersed goes a long way but with something like chocolate that feels like such a commodity in America. Sometimes it feels like a losing battle So I guess my the question is what positive changes if any have these bigger. Chocolate companies made either in their Sustainability stain ability or in there just more main practices child labor etcetera And other than where we choose to buy and how we choose to the by.

It's been apple for as long as many can remember, but Microsoft is one the last few rounds if you want to keep the boxing analogy. So here's how things stand apple given today's close now worth around eight hundred and twenty seven billion dollars, Microsoft, given the fact that it had an update is now worth around eight hundred and twenty two billion dollars. So the crown for now still belongs to the iphone giant, but just a few bucks here and there on stock price, and we could swing balanced back towards Microsoft at each company's respective peak market value, apple still has all the bragging rights having surpassed that big one trillion dollar, Mark.

And now that they've basically closed up shop you've got grocery stores and drug drugstore chain and other big box stores that are already put it dented toys R recipes fortunes that are really trying to increase the space and roll out the experiences and get those exclusive toys that are going to get customers to come their way and avoid their competitors. Wow. Grocery stores to L. Yeah. Kroger already is one of the biggest sellers of Hot Wheels. Which a lot of people may not realize that you already had some that were kind of playing in that arena. But now that there's this huge opportunity. A lot more folks are trying to kind of dive into it Sam's Club party city has got these Choi a city stores that are opening up as pop ups during the holiday season. I'm so a lot of folks are trying to kind of win over that customer who no longer has toys R us has an option. To go to. So are there corresponding marketing efforts to go alongside this? You know, they're all making a really big deal about the fact that they've got you no more I'll space devoted to toys which target is doing. Walmart's Quinn have I believe one hundred and ninety thousand different events this holiday season. And a lot of that involves, you know, picking the picture with Santa it also coming and I'm boxing toys, seeing toy demonstrations. And so they really definitely are trying to sound the the bell that they're open for business that they've got all of these great items that their kids may want for the holiday, so come check them out. What's an online sales will that change at all? You know, I think that you know, Amazon is already as with everything else. You know, become a very big player in that space as well. And we haven't heard a lot about what sales are going to have yet. But there is talk that Amazon is going to have a big gifting catalog vis gear, which is going to be something that's new, and so I think you're gonna see the sales happening in both spaces. Walmart's Glynn half forty percent more toys online than a tad in the past along with three hundred toys that you can't get anywhere else. And so, you know, at this point online and brick and mortar are really of a piece. Right. You know, you can't be in business and not playing both spaces. And so you're going to see choice sales. I think both online at an actual store the guy from Mattel that you talked to said something about like the new stores coming on the senior reference party city, which I only think of like as decorations and costumes or something what's happening there. Right. Right. So they've got about fifty five toys city pop up cynically. Be around this holiday season. A lot of them are next Halloween city stores, which obviously are going to be out of business as tomorrow. But they've got these choice that he pop ups you've got old players like FAO Schwarz that are coming back on the scene. They closed up their landmark store in New York three years ago, whether opening up a new one a new flagship in rock plaza it this month, and so that's another place where folks can now go, plus they've got pop up in stores like Bloomingdales, and and other big chains.

I'd be shocked if we're any of those guys because you generally get more than a year or two to prove yourselves released year year and a half that type of thing but year one that would be a bold move because all these guys have multi year contracts.
