New York Isn't Dead

"It was the headline struck at the heart of cities. During the pandemic new york is dead.

His celebrated appeal declaring that new york. Sure as hell will be back so a year later. Who was right robert. Frank joins us with more robert. Good morning andrew jerry. Seinfeld's words still inspiring new yorkers year later with that hashtag. nyc is not dead and that of course was a response to all tutors. Op ed saying that. Remote work empty office. Buildings boarded up restaurants and hotels. Rising crime and high taxes would hollow out the city for years or decades. Now who was right. Well a year later on the residential real estate size that side that has rebounded sales more than doubling over the past year prices almost back to pre pandemic levels and do rentals having their best quarter in recent history. You look at restaurant traffic. That was down. Eighty nine percent a year ago from pre penned democ. Now it's about half of those prepaid pandemic levels. Mta subway ridership. It is improving but it is still about half what it was pre pandemic hotel occupancy now at around sixty seven percent that compares to about forty percent a year ago so improvement there as well. But new york's recovery future depends a lot on office workers and that is the big unknown. There was forty seven million square feet of empty office space in midtown as the first quarter and then if you look at rental rates they are down nine percent from a year ago a year ago only twelve percent of new york city workers were back in the office. Now it is twenty three percent and guys with the delta variant. We thought people would come back in right after labor day. Now we're looking at mid october. Maybe so until we get those office workers back until we know how many do come back. New york's recovery is still open to question

And we're talking about why bitcoin bill miller doesn't think it's a market bubble even though others seem to think so i up however let's the brief i other brief today it is. Cpi day and i don't need to tell you guys as regular listeners of the show how contentious debate around inflation is right now. The fed is invested in trying to convince everyone that the numbers are high but transitory based on specific dislocations related to the world coming out of corona wall street is invested. Because they're worried that the cheap money party will come to an in their minds. Premature end if the fed is forced to take action and raised rates. Bitcoin is are invested because inflation eating people savings and generally making their lives. Harder is a key part of their philosophical thesis for bitcoin. In the first place all of this added up gives the release of new numbers a pretty serious significance. Well the latest numbers are out and they're pretty sure to make this debate rage even hotter the consumer price index jumped zero point nine percent in june month over month. Five point four percent year-over-year. The monthly change was the largest. One month changed since june. Two thousand eight when you excludes food and energy the so called core. Cpi month over month was also zero point. Nine percent in year-over-year was four point five percent. This was more than expected. Bloomberg economists had predicted zero point. Five percent monthly and four point nine percent year over year. The big drivers of inflation are sort of what you'd expect. Increased demand particularly around things like travel. And they're also continues to be supply shortages. Although many commodity prices like lumber are starting to come back to earth there also shifts in employee expectations. A lot of people are making different. Decisions are looking to be paid more for the first time in a long time. Some of these costs are being passed on. Forty seven percent of small businesses rose average selling prices in may and that was the highest share since one thousand nine hundred eighty one now as always. There is a ton of hemming in hong about the implications of all this. And i'll just point to one tweet. That i think nails it from melting mirrors. She writes cost of living.

Myths And Realities Of America's Rural Economy

"Economists benghazi. Laurie says the first rule about rural america is that there is no rural america. Like fight club except with cow. I was saying that's that's not actually what he said. What do you actually said was this. There's so many different parts of rural america that it's a misnomer to actually categorize all on one monolithic theme. Bend means is that rural. america is not one thing. It's more like a collection of rural communities each with different economies with different strengths and problems and different characteristics and binga says one of the best ways to see this is to look at the racial ethnic makeup of the people who live in each of these rural communities if for example throughout much of middle america including the big farming areas more than nine out of ten people are white and for all of rural america. Roughly eight out of ten people are white. Now that's definitely higher than the six out of ten people who were white in the us overall but bengals very point is these figures mask. A lot of demographic diversity in the individual rural communities for example here are some estimates from his own analysis. And so if you look at our break down just a regional breakdown. Americans in rural areas in northeast is only about two percent in the mid west. But what a half percent in west. It's even smaller. It's under one percents. But in the south it is sixteen point. Six percent so the population of african americans in the rural south is greater than it is in a national one. Benji says that's why this part of rural america in the south is often referred to as the black belt. There's also the rural parts of the great plains states that have a high share of native americans living in them like in new mexico and montana. Plus there is rural hispanic centers in south west and west like in arizona and california and in all three of these regions. There is a smaller share of white residents than there is in the us overall. And that's why banca says it's a myth that rural america is all white. The second myth that needs to go bunga says is it. The rural american economy is all about farming and the extraction of natural resources like mining. These are definitely still important sectors. But they're far from the biggest. So service sector. Employment is the largest sector in rural communities. And it's been like that for a long time. In most rural communities the combined services education and health care and social assistance employed the most people in fact these sectors employ roughly the same share of people throughout rural america as in the rest of the country about twenty three percent in a lot of rural counties. A local school system or the hospital for example is the single biggest employer and even in rural towns that originally depended on a different industry or on a different employer. These services naturally sprung up around those industries to complement them says banca bow meat packing plants and in the twentieth century. Early part of twentieth century. Me packing plants were prevalent in urban areas. But they start to move out into smaller towns to become kind of like that one employer to town. Another example is automobile industry Move from the north moving down south to mississippi and alabama. A lot of it is to take advantage of the low wage labor market and the lack of united nation and so this is actually has pushed these rural economies away from agriculture. To service sector. This is also why it's a big deal. When the one hospital in a rural town closes there might just not be many other employers left plus it means that residents of that town have to look further out to access healthcare. This is especially a problem in places like the black belt where there's been a huge increase in the number of hospitals that have closed over the last few decades and finally myth number three that needs busting bunga says is the idea that rural america is dying or destined for permanent decline but in fact some parts of rural america are thriving about one out of every three rural counties has enjoyed strong population growth in recent decades with their populations actually peaking as they headed into the last decade. That's according to the latest data. Unfortunately that's also roughly the same share of rural counties that are depopulating about one out of every three rural counties has lost more than twenty five percent of its population since nineteen fifty. The populations of these counties are aging partly because so many young adults of childbearing age are leaving for the cities and suburbs in search of job opportunities and for these counties this kind of fishes cycle consenting people leaving means there's less money for taxes and investment to provide the amenities and services that people want and so more people leave which means the tax base drops again and so on and this is one reason why incomes are lower and poverty rates are higher in rural america then in the rest of the country but nothing about this cycle is inevitable it can be slowed or even reversed and says even in some communities where the population looked like. It would be in permanent decline. There have been success stories especially in the places that have a lot of immigration as so you have a lot of people. Immigrants coming in to work meat. Meatpacking plant manufacturing places. The other thing is that a lot of immigration From other areas in terms of people coming to the us for becoming doctors lawyers things like that a higher education and income communities. So you think about the mid west. There's like a population of say vietnamese and brass or these areas or like the monk population in minnesota that these places do not struggle as much with population loss because they're welcoming immigrants and that helps them to not only just having people there but then these people start stores or start their own business. So we see a lot of that entrepeneurship self-employment that's helping to keep that area of vibrant. Finally bengals primary message here. Is that people who live in cities and suburbs should not think of rural america is a place that's in decline in needs help instead. They should be turning to rural america as a place that's experienced a wide diversity. Economic challenges and triumphs and therefore as a place to find ideas for how to address the big socio economic issues of the day like climate change trade immigration education healthcare. Pretty much. all of them

The Power of Humor

"Jennifer occur a named by donuts or a professor and lecturer respectively at the stanford graduate school of business. They've just written a book called humor seriously so gentle. Why don't we start by well. Why don't you start by telling me the value of humor in the workplace. I in leadership when people use humor at work the are twenty three percent more respected and are seen as more competent and more confident. It doesn't even need to be good humor. Just not inappropriate humor. The bar is so low and for employee retention employees. Read their bosses. As having a sense of humor any sense of humor they were to be fifteen percent more satisfied and engaged in their jobs and even in sales studies show that people pay on average eighteen percent more if the seller includes a lighthearted line as part of their final offer like my final offer is x. And i'll throw in my pet frog again. The humor doesn't have to be good and just anything. So what do you think is the cost of not using humor. If you're recuperation well not only would it reduce creativity it also reduces engagement and retention so the koster significant All right so. I was thinking to myself as i read this book. If i was a corporation or a senior manager in a corporation and i was thinking i was wondering what the return on investment might be and i think touched on a couple of things. Creativity better relationships with clients productivity. Is there any other other any other things that you could think of. That would provide a decent return on investment for an investment in humor for companies. So just to be clear you want more than retention innovation leadership selling products. You want more from us. Pat coty. we'll give you another one. We'll give you a health that the cost of of health mental wellbeing physical wellbeing are enormous for companies and humor actually makes you not only healthier. It makes you live longer so one. Large-scale norwegian study conducted over the course of fifteen years. Found that people with a sense of humor. Happy thirty percent better chance of survival if severe disease strikes and they live eight years longer so laughter literally makes us more physically. Resilient has bottom line effects for companies. I know. I've met so many people in my career my careers in fact who are just not fans of humor that like look i just wanna do. My job paid and go home. But how do you deal. If you're a manager. How do you deal with someone. Who has that kind of vibe and feeling about them. Well you're hitting on one of costello's biggest pieces of advice the former. Ceo of twitter. Dick says if you wanna have more humor at work. Don't tell jokes. Don't try to be funny. Just look for more reasons to laugh. It's this idea of actually being human not about being humorous And this is the reality is right now that this is more important than ever because you know our work is much more technology mediated and therefore the harder it is to be to bring out our humanity and a sense of humor at work we subconsciously adopt to our medium and we're constantly communicating through technology. It's easy to sound like a robot so it's more really in a way it's more by sense of humor than being funny absolutely and it's also about being more generous with laughter so not trying to be funny just looking for moments to laugh generously and the entire texture of life changes when you're able to live this way And another thing that we try and tell people to do is to try and create small moments of joy for someone else and especially. If you're having trouble finding it in your own life right now just looked to create a little moment for someone and it can be a really small gesture not a joke by changing your virtual background to a picture from fun shared experience or You know leaving a nice posted on your fridge for the person that you cohabitate with But this focus on creating joy for someone else help. Take the pressure off. You know. I need to be funny. I need to look funny myself. And it's more about. How can i focus on someone else in. Elevate them

Is this people in the market. Saying look it's up. Four hundred percent of the past year where we're taking some profits. I think that's a reasonable. That's a reasonable assumption. There are some things in the call that could lead you to believe maybe the near term there might be some challenges. But yeah i mean there's no doubt it is a it's a business it's not profitable yet and and so that is one of those things. That's the biggest risk to to a stock like this today is is typically going to be valuation given how far it's run in such a short time if you just been a tremendous perform for us in our services and it's really turning into a fun little company to follow the valley. It shows the value. I think that spinoffs can offer. Because if you remember. Sarah is it used to be a part of nuance communications and spun off from nuance to to become. Its own own little company but but really servants for folks who don't know. What does i mean. This is a company that focuses on conversational envision. Art official intelligence based products for the automobile. And so it's essentially getting in your car in being able to operate things primarily with your voice but they also have audio or visual components. They're they're working with a partnerships to develop a augmented reality windshields so all sorts of things they're developing as the car becomes next frontier and i. It's the neat thing about this business. I is when you when you actually go through. What they do in the primary focus today is on the automobile but they also they also like to tout the market expansion potential and adjacent markets including get this. Chris cruise ships two wheel vehicles and elevators so so modes of transportation of all sorts. I mean they're really looking to get into all sorts of different modes of transportation. It really the car is the primary frontier for this this business but to your point it was a great quarter. Revenue grew by twenty three percent. They had called incidentally for ten to sixteen percent previously so they said they really surpassed guidance there so ninety five million dollars for the quarter versus versus a year ago setting a new quarterly record. They've continued growth in billings per car and interestingly too they won back a major european. Oem deal for the quarter so so generating some new infotainment designs of for a major european and that production will start in two thousand twenty three. So there's a lot of cool stuff on the horizon. I mentioned there. Were some signs that maybe some near-term challenges in primarily that was noted in a supply chain constraints. Semiconductors in i i think management is being pretty upfront with that. We've seen that mentioned before and other calls. The company are referred to on motley. Fool money this past week synthetics they noted the same thing that there are just some supply chain constraints in the semicon semiconductor industry. Right now that are that are putting some businesses in a little bit of a pinch. That's a near term thing. That's not a business specific specific things so so for me. I look at what this business is doing the regardless of the selling off today. I think they really still are. They're delivering what they say they're going to deliver in. And i'm really encouraged.

"What we have a lot of guests on talk about the future of finance, and what it might look like the asset management fields the investment banking business. There's no better way to get a sense of that to look at the people who are going to be running everything in the future. And so we are very pleased to be joined by students of Quinnipiac business school as well as the dean and professor of finance Akron. It be ex school of business at Matthew O'Connor students. John Wentz, Alexandra Abbas. Thank you all for joining us. Matthew, I want to start with you about this conference, which is organized by students if I understand this correctly. What do you think is the most important thing that they get out of it? So well, first of all thanks for having on this morning. We really appreciate it. And I wanna welcome everybody today. Would it be night annual game forum? So there's a couple of things that we think are great about game. And what students really get out of it. The first is we're getting them out of the classroom and in front of the very best minds on Wall Street, and that is an incredible learning opportunity for them. So they can compare what they learn in the classroom and see that it's not always exactly the same. And they also see that the wide range of opinions that are expressed throughout the panels and the session. So that's a great learning opportunity for them. But the second thing that's just as important as there's about fourteen hundred students here, and so they're starting to make their network and build their now to make connections with each other. So we think that's the second most important thing about the game conference networking you can never start early. Nothing networking exactly exactly kindergarten. Alessandro? You are a senior. Is that right? Yes. Okay. So he's a senior majoring in finance. What is your area of interest here today? What do you want to hear? What do you wanna see? What do you want to understand? I'm really interested in seeing more hearing more about the global portfolio management merging markets and domestic markets. I am the portfolio manager of the Quinnipiac endowment off-shoot student loan portfolio. And is that real money? Yes. That's real money. Two point five million dollars. Oh that Israel. How're you doing? Doing pretty well. Our growth fund is up twenty three percent on the year. And John's going to talk about a valley for folio. We also value fund that we run it's larger it's larger of the two funds. But the SNP up thirteen percent versus eleven percent for the so. Outperformance on. So now, it's going. Well, we're doing it, John you're a finance major an accounting minor. And I'm wondering at a time of such flux in the finance business. Whether it's on the asset management side or on the banking side. How does that affect how you want to position yourself going into into the business? I mean, obviously, the the market today for outgoing students going into this field and to finance. It's very competitive. You really have to know what you're talking about. You have to know what you're looking at you have to be able to speak correctly and fluently. And I think it's going to be I think it's going to be difficult going and actually on that path and finding what I wanna do and getting to the point want to be at but other than that. I think if I just noticed the grindstone like I've been doing and like the like the work that Sandra. And I've been doing I think that will ultimately reach my goal of. Yep. So Dido counter, you know, it seems like back in my day was all about Wall Street all about business school. And now, it's tech. Text the sexy cool thing a lot of kids going engineering. How would the business schools adapting? So I think they're adapting at a couple of ways. So absolutely, right. Tech is critically important. But now all of our students are getting much better. Grounding in in analytics were introducing things like coding into the business school curriculum. We're not expecting them to be expert coders, but we want them to be able to to understand that it contribute in their firm. So I think if we we take the traditional business education, it's still critically important. But layer on some of the new things, particularly analytics, particularly coding, bring in discussions about fintech. The students are going to still be great contributors down the road. So. Alessandro? What's been the best performing back that you guys have made in your portfolio? So the best performing bet so far has been GW pharmaceuticals. I actually pitched that last semester. We had one twenty entry and trim around seventy five. It's I loved following that company out of your passion for it. I researched it a lot it's paid off greatly. So John sitting in that seat about fifteen minutes ago was a greatest value investor. Arguably of all time Bill..

"Quick question for you. Are you more likely to be struck by lightning or receive social security benefits when you retire? Well, that's a silly question. Of course, you're going to receive social security benefits. But a lot of Americans really doubt it, and I want to give you both some reassurance and a little bit of concern. You ought to be paying attention to first social security is not going away. That's not an issue reject any assertions you ever hear from anybody about. That fact. However, there's something else very important that you do need to understand the current social security benefits that are being paid to retirees the average check in America's about thirteen hundred bucks a month that check is based on two pieces one the taxes that the government collects in Fayka, you know, every year from everybody's paychecks. That money is distributed to retirees and there's. Money that is taken from the social security trust fund to supplement that revenue. The result thirteen hundred bucks to the average retiree. The problem is we're pulling money out of the trust funds. So fast that we are depleting it to the point according to the social security administration and pretty much everybody else who studies the stuff the trust one. We depleted around twenty thirty two maybe twenty thirty four we've got fourteen years, maybe sixteen years to fix this. If we don't if we allow the trust fund to be totally depleted, which is on pace to do an twenty thirty two or twenty thirty four social security retirement checks will be cut twenty three percent across the board. Every retiree we'll get a twenty three percent reduction in their social security benefit. This is a pending crisis for the entire American economy. Why because the average retiree gets most of their income from social security. And for single retirees it's about seventy five percent of their income. So imagine if suddenly that check of thirteen hundred bucks gets cut to about nine hundred dollars, you'll see millions of retirees unable to pay rent or mortgage payments unable to buy medicine unable to pay for food. You will see homelessness on a massive scale. Congress will never tolerate that. Obviously, what will congress do about it raise taxes to fix it? Which means we could see twenty-five percent increases in taxes for working Americans. No matter how you slice it. It's a very difficult situation. The good news is we can see this train wreck coming. We've got fourteen years to fix it. If congress acts soon, we can stop this problem from ever being anything more than a mere annoyance. And that is why I got together with the bipartisan policy center to form the funding our future coalition to put together a group of dozens of organizations we have over three. Dozen so far nonprofit organizations academic organizations and corporations who have joined together to focus on retirement security for America. There's never been a coalition like it ever put together before and you can learn about it at funding our future dot US. And I want to introduce to you to talk about this former governor of Vermont, Jim Douglas. He's a member of the bipartisan policy center's commission on retirement security and personal savings. Governor. It's a real treat to have you on the program. Well, it's my pleasure. Rick. Thanks for having me. So we know that that pensions are largely gone from the private sector less than seventeen percent of private employers offer, a pension, but most states still do pretty much every state employee isn't titled to a pension at retirement. But a lot of them are underfunded. Meaning the states have not set aside enough money to meet the promises that they've made to those workers. So talk about this from your perspective from being a governor. It's a serious problem. You're absolutely right. There are about one point four trillion dollars of unfunded liabilities and state pension programs now funds that are not there to pay the benefits that politicians have promised their public employees. These are called divine defined benefit plans. And I know you've explained the difference between those and other types of retirement plans on the show, but this means that someone will be entitled to receive a payment for as long as he or she lives, and those resources are simply not there for a couple of reasons. People are living longer healthcare costs have gone up. Some of the plans provide for health coverage for retirees, and it's a pretty easy thing to underfund legislators need to balance the budget, especially in tough economic times. So here we are with one point four trillion dollars, unfunded liabilities and just like social security. Many pension plans are on an unsustainable. Trajan. So what do we do about this? What does it mean for the average employee working for a state or local government who's counting on that pension? What do they need to do or changes? They need to make their in their attitude or in their behaviors. There are some states where the constitution requires that contract be met. So one way or another either through significant increases in taxes or some other resource legislature is going to have to come up with a way to fund it. But in other places, it's not the case. And we saw a classic example in the city of central falls Rhode Island a few years ago, we're pension benefits were substantially reduced after people had retired because the city just didn't keep up with its obligation to fund the system. So we have to take this more seriously and Moody's Investors Service, downgraded the credit rating of the state of Vermont, citing the underfunding of the pension systems as one of the reasons corporate America has figured this out. That's why they abandoned largely the pension program. They they've terminated their plans or frozen them and replace them with 4._0._1._K programs, basically saying what you put in is what you're going to get out. We'll match will contribute to it as well. But we're not making any lifelong. Promises to you. The private sector's pretty much figure that out but the states yet haven't that's right? It really was around World War Two that public employee unions began to realize that wages couldn't go up as fast as they might like so perhaps enhancing compensation through benefits such as pension plan would be another way to provide more opportunities for their members. The problem is though they've been under funded over time. And now, we find ourselves with this severely underfunded, a long, term liability. I think even beyond the financial impact to states, there's some real advantages to the four oh one type defined contribution plans. There are a lot of people who don't want to invest in a particular stock or company or or industry. Well, if you have your own account, you can decide what you want to invest in and make your own decisions. And I think it also empowers the individual to be more aware of his or her financial future and to and to plan accordingly. So I guess that's really the message for everybody. Even though you may be. Working for an employer such as a state government. That is promising you a pension. You've got a treat it with a certain amount of suspicion will they in fact, be able to honor the promise and should you be saving elsewhere for your retirement? As though that promise won't get honored. I mean, I don't think anybody's ever yelled at me because they save too much money. I think that's exactly right. It's great advice rate. I think throughout history people have thought, well, unlike a private company that could go out of business governmental entity is always going to be there. And we'll generally it is, but it's still could run out of money and face the kind of situation that the central falls retirees did a couple of years ago. So I think it's a time for more vigilance on the part of the public to question their elected officials about the status of their pension funds and hold them accountable and make sure that they're meeting their obligations, either by funding them adequately or shifting to a system where that unfunded liability goes away. I'm going to shift topics here. I like to hit you with a financial quiz. Can I do that? Oh, yeah. So I warn you twenty five percent of the people who took this quiz got it wrong. So you ready? Okay. All right. So here's the quiz. I'm going to suppose that you have one hundred dollars in a savings account. And it earns two percent interest each year. After five years how much money will you have. And I'm gonna give you three choices. Okay. More than one hundred and two dollars. Exactly one hundred and two dollars or less than one hundred and two dollars after five years. Yep. Better have more than one hundred and two and exactly the correct answer. So congratulations. Good for you. You got the answer. Correct. I consider this question. One of the most basic personal finance questions that exist and yet twenty five percent of those who take this quiz, get the answer wrong. What does that tell us about what the status of financial literacy is in our country? Well, it's lacking. Obviously, I I don't know we can possibly do enough to get the word out to the American people that they have to I understand the basics of personal finance and then take appropriate action to secure their own financial futures and that of their families. There are number of ways to do that. There's more awareness through public offices are state treasurer's office in Montpellier, for example, has a director of financial literacy now who gets around the state trying to educate people there are some high schools in the country that.

Fifty three percent say the shutdown is the fault of the president and Republicans twenty nine percent, say Democrats CNN fifty five percent say it's Trump and Republicans fall thirty two percent, Democrats CBS yougov forty seven percent say it's Trump's fall. Only three percent say it's Republican's fault. Thirty percent say it's the Democrats fall to that's broken out where the president and Republicans are separate Reuters. Fifty one percent say Trump is at fault seven percents Republicans. Thirty two percent, say Democrats and then politico morning consult forty seven percent say the president's five percents. Say it's the fault of Republicans. Thirty three percent say it's the fault of Democrats. Interesting tidbits in the ABC Washington Post poll. A majority of Americans. Fifty four percent oppose the president's idea of a border wall. While forty two percent supported butts those numbers are trending in the president's favor as sixty three percent opposed a wall while thirty four percent supported it one year ago. So a decent sized shift in terms of support for the wall. When it comes to who's at fault. One of the big key numbers that I always keep an eye on especially in something like this. Is independence and how they're swaying and among independence, fifty three percents blame the president twenty three percent Democrats. So that's a bit of a problem for the president. And also, I know a lot of you probably hear these poll numbers and say polls her fake news and all of that. Well, the president's favorite poll Rasmussen is showing a trend. That's not going in the president's direction. He's got his lowest approval ratings in almost a year. Rasmussen found a forty three percent of likely voters approve of Trump's job performance. His lowest Mark in the Poulsen's January of twenty eighteen when it's approval was forty two percents. The poll found fifty five percent of respondents disapproving of his performance, including forty six percent who strongly disapprove. And according to Rasmussen, this is key. And again, this is the poll that the president quotes. Trump's approval rating has slipped since his prime time dress last week. So it doesn't sound like the prime time address helped very much which I said it wouldn't. There's also a different poll Quinnipiac university poll about that Oval Office address that found it changed. Just two percent of people's minds. Which.

"You don't wanna be having a hall of Famer starting behind handsome Jimmy next year. Now, you know, the Niners are really familiar with having two hall of famers on the team at the same time. I think I think we'll manage now when it comes to Seattle really it was the or really when it comes to. I think the thing that set him apart this game as compared to the last game was his performance under pressure right and week thirteen. I think Ken Norton dialed up quite a few more blitzes. They pressured him thirty five percent of the time. Eighty eighteen fifty two snaps Norton blitzes twenty three percent of the time. They sacked him three times. Two of those were of on blitzes. Well, now, it kind of it kind of shows just how differently teams can game plan with. I don't like having games game against the Niners. Then a game in between and then another game because then especially in the case of having the blow out I'm sure the team looks at and says, well, we can just keep doing what we're doing the blitzen work last game. So let's go after McGinn and clearly Shanahan had a response for that. Because you know, Mullins was able to get rid of the ball a lot more quickly and pick up the guy when he saw the blitz coming. So it was a lot more effective. And and really the defensive line wasn't getting a lot of pressure on its own earlier on in the game. It really wasn't until the fourth quarter where we started seeing guys jarran Reed. And Frank Clark really an amp up the pressure on the defensive line jarran Reed. I think for the Niners. There's always been a long history of someone really really good on the interior is blowing up the line for the car. Journals for a long time. They had Corey Peters against any Kilgore. And now, I think jarran Reed might be that guy against our new center western rich because he's had a couple of really good games. I thought it was interesting about the pressure though, was that even the first game Molins had a pretty good line against the blitz. He was six of ten for sixty two yards and a touchdown specifically against the blitz. And I think that change Norton's tactics in game two because Norton did not blitz. Nearly as much in the second game the Seattle Seahawks still managed to get pressure. Like you said a lot of it coming late in the game. But Seattle backed off on the blitzing wasn't working in the first half. Yeah. Five or more. Russia's just nineteen percent of the time. They did sack Mullins three times. But none of them were on blitzes and yet still on the blitz. Mullins was four for six for fifty six yards. All four completions were first downs. So I think Mullins the thing that sets them apart from Beth third is his processing speed his ability to diagnose blitzes pre snap.

"As most of the FANG stocks have but epilogue particulars down twenty two twenty three percent from from late August or early September of now, this kind of talk, you know, have has people kind of jumping on the bandwagon. Then selling apple of even more those are short term investors people who are more concerned about the stock going down five or ten percent in the near term rather than wondering where Apple's going to be five years from now. So again for foolish investors for long-term investors. I would be more concerned about whether apple continues to be an innovative company. Whether it's ecosystem is going to move forward continue to generate profits and worry less about what's going to happen over the next two three. Quarters. You know, it is interesting just to think about the pricing power apple has been able to raise the average selling price of the iphone dramatically of the last five years. Now, some of the units are up about thousand dollars. So whether they will decide if this happens, whether they they would keep it in just. Trying to figure out ways to offset that or if they would actually try to pass that onto consumers and ANC would consumers be willing to pay a little bit higher? We do know that. I phone sales have kind of just stagnating a little bit. And they've been able to make the revenue growth up on the pricing side, not necessarily unit side. I think I'm part of the problem because I have an iphone six s and I have no desire to get a new phone. What I will do is. I'm going to get the battery replace because I've already had to replace once. And now it's awful again. But I don't need a new phone. So are aren't they kind of the victim? Now. I mean, each new iphone, I know it's better, and it takes better photos and all that. But the the difference is so incremental at this point aren't there a lot of people like me who are like, you know, what I'm good with my phone, and I'm just going to change the battery. I think there are a lot of people like you that have maybe eight or eight s. A little bit at some point. They're going to stop supporting that seven nine hundred. I was a little bit behind. The should always just compare myself to MAC, and I think I looked better in pretty much true story. I was the last guy the Molly fool with the blackberry one of our Tex can we quit support him.

"Just jump in here because I think I see where you're going in the finish the second year, Rebecca, but but no-one no-one ever said that just because a woman is running that women should vote for them because they shared gender, right? Oh, no, not at all. But I just wanted to make the I just wanted to bring up that point. Because I do think an I find myself engaged in this too. Because I write about women, you know, and I talk about women, and I talk about women as an oppressed majority, and they are, but it is also true that we want to acknowledge the different patterns and the ways in which power plays out amongst the broad group that we label when we'll Well, look look, I I mean, mean, we've we've got. got a comment here from someone calling themselves Robin wood who has sent a comment to on radio dot org and Robin woods says it said that rather than concentrating on individuals on point chooses to perpetuate the old way of thinking looking at people I based on their group identity as if that's the most remarkable thing about them what they were born into male female black white gay straight at cetera rather than their personal attributes thoughts and accomplishment. So I mean, it seems as if Robin woods saying that we're making too much of a big deal that all these women are running simply because they're women. Well, I think that it's, you know, it's hard to not acknowledge how identity plays into who has had political power, and who has political power in a country that was founded, you know, in a way in which in which massive populations African Americans and and women were denied the franchise for for decades for centuries in which African Americans were enslaved in which you know, up until last night women represented twenty three percent of of congress. This is not this is a country that prides itself on being a Representative democracy, but has not in fact, been Representative in its governing bodies. And so it's hard to talk about politics and an electoral realities without acknowledging the kinds of discrepancies in in power and electability that have existed throughout our history. And that persists still. I mean, I wish Robin would ra- here on the phone because what I might say to this person. And I don't know if Robin woods, male or female, but that sometimes it is important to talk about attributes such as gender because that's how the world sees us. First and foremost, so that's one response. I'd have for Robin wood. But, but let's hear from a few more of the women who ran in these two thousand eighteen midterm elections. And and one first of all here's democrat Abigail spin burger she won an upset victory. In Virginia's seventh district last night against Republican Dave brat. And unwinnable district by doing exactly what every campaign should do. We focused on the needs of the people the voters we talked about the substantive issues affecting their lives. We stood up for American values. And we brought respect and decency that. It's Abigail span burger in Virginia over in Texas democrat, Lucy Fletcher unseeded nine term, Republican congressman John Culbertson in their Houston district. The most important election of my lifetime. And it's not it's not because my name is on the ballot. My name is on the ballot. Because it's the most important election of our lifetime. This leads Lucy Fletcher who won her congressional seat in Texas last night, Rebecca tracer, you know, it's this is a remarkable moment for women. There's no doubt about it. But I'm a numbers person when it comes down to it. And I think that we need a bit of a reality check. You just you mentioned it a minute ago. But let's let's dig into this in the house right now four hundred and thirty five available seats, total eighty four is the record number of women. We've had ever out of those four hundred thirty five seats as of last night, though, that number's bumped up to ninety six seats, but we're still not even at twenty five percent for women in the house. So, you know, we can we can talk about how well meant is two thousand eighteen was, but there is a huge way to go. If we're talking if we even desire is nation to have some sort of Representative democracy for the fifty percent of the population of this country who are women. Well, this has been the great ongoing struggle throughout America's history has..

"We can against the Seattle defense. It's not quite the same defense for us to see from the Seahawks, but it's still not one to look past or laugh at because they still do have elite players all in. You don't know when to you out of the three that I would consider league players. Bobby Wagner. Earl, Thomas Frank Clark, which one of those do you think is going to have the biggest impact on this game? That's a good question. I always think that comment's is going to have a huge impact on. But I think that. Clark in this situation probably holds holds the cards because the one thing you cannot have in this offense is the buzzword of getting behind the chains. You can't do that so you can't take sacks. So if Clark has a big game, any gets sacra to that could really hurt the offense as we've seen this offense that for the most part and we've seen throughout the years dating back to twenty sixteen is we wanna we wanna have long drives. We want those eight minutes drives where we run the ball, seven times, throw the ball sixty star team played drives that take up a huge chunk of time. This offense needs that that rhythm to be in because it isn't explosive. And when you get into second fifteen, second seventeen third in eleven's, those aren't going to get converted these teams with better terrible on third down were at twenty three percent. The Cowboys twenty three percent conversion rate and the Seahawks were twenty eight. So whoever wins the third down battle has good chance of winning the game and to do that, you're going to need to block Clark yet some because I kind of look at the tape from the start of the season with Clark playing against Inver, playing against the bears in something. He's just so well is something like Michael Bennett used cities, hugest wreaths a snack and jumps the snap a lot in when Seattle plays it home. You're not able to take advantage of that by trying to draw offsides. You can't do your, you know, your false count, your your hard count to get them to jump off sides. When they're in Seattle, you can't do that because you can barely hear you can barely see what's going on. You're lucky to hit the snap off on time anyways. So there's no real trigger. You can do there, but you know, I think they're going to. I keep hearing a lot of people say that's going to be Tyran Smith guy. I think they're going to move him over and put him allow Collins. He plays left and right in for Seattle, and I think they'd be silly to be throwing their best and really only pass rush threat at time Smith, you know, snap after snap, I'd put him over all mile Collins who shown his struggles speed and showing his struggles withholdings penalties to start the year. I think they'd be wise to move him over and say, all right clerk, you know, you're going to be on Collins all day. You know, threaten the edge. You give them the inside move because I is one of his best moves in while has concede to get a little grabby when he is not sure what Russia is gonna get hit with some excited to see kind of what they do. I say cited, I could be very excited gain time comes around, but. This is going to be a big game for those. Countless often tackles, but coal, we've talked about it at the end of the podcast on Wednesday, we got a fan question about Earl, Thomas. Some people are calling this the Earl Thomas bowl, how much of an effect is Thomas going to have on the football game? You know, obviously he's aid future hall of Famer in my opinion a by far in my opinion, the best safety in last six, seven, eight years. What do you think is he going to take over this game's gonna be there's no way he's not going to be a factor in this game, but how does he is he going to miss tackles? Fourth fumbles he hit a big interceptions. Something's going to happen in this game where we look at the positive or negative. Game because of this play or because of that clay. And I think it's going to involve roll Thomas. How do you think this game. Like you say, Thomas is a future hope team res by we the best save gened..
