And you know whatever. And i thought that cannot be me.
Georgia names Josh Brooks athletic director
"Josh brooks who just recently took over for greg mcgarity as a new athletic director at the university of georgia where he had previously. Been the top assistant josh. First of all congratulations and thanks so much for coming good afternoon. Any thanks for having me fall. It's great to have you and you know. This is one of those jobs that all aspiring administrators want to have the especially working having. You got your masters there after going to lsu and working under greg. I'm interested in what it was like to be his opposition and ultimately to to move in as he retired well thankfully greg's been a great mentor from me especially these last few years. He's really giving me a peek behind the rope as a services number to give me a chance to be a part of those big decisions really see you know what he goes day basis how he makes those decisions. He's letting me sit in for him and eighty meetings Whether it be on campus or in the sec. So i really am thankful to greg for the opportunities. He's giving me these last couple of years. That have prepped. Me for this day. And i think combined with that with my knowledge of institution haven't been here. Ten plus years has really served me well and made me comfortable to sit in this chair on day. One genesis has been quite a year to be an administration that there was a time many many years ago when a lot of a lot of former football coaches would move into that position. I'm not saying it was ceremonial but there was usually someone underneath. Who did the heavy lifting those days are over. These are tough jobs especially coming off of a a difficult and challenging twenty season. What does it look like just short term to try to for all of us to get out of where we been from this pandemic and to start seeing some sunshine again. Yeah hopefully you know. We're all tracking the numbers. And we're hoping that that we're at that peak point right now coming out of new year's and knowing that the vaccines are starting to be distributed but you brought them interesting point about former football coaches or former coaches moving into the role and now primarily most or came up through administration. There's not a lot of eighties have actually coached There's a lot these who played but not who've actually coached so. I think that gives me interesting. Take that. I've been on that coaching side. Being football off-spinner assistant coach for number years. It's given me another perspective. Combine that with the ministry of experience. That's really helped me as well in this role but you talk about moving out of covid. We've got remain optimistic. We've got a hope for the best and the worst. You're already planning four g. day. We've got the limited seats ready in case but obviously like i said hope for the best keep progressing but we've got to prepare and plan for every scenario moving forward josh. I realize you're you're you're barely ended the job you start questioning you on on things that We'll take some time to sort out but with every athletic director and georgia probably better equipped at the most because of the success of the program. How do you deal with the loss of revenue. We're does it affect or how does it affect the program. The most well thankfully paul. We have a phenomenal team here. From our development staff and our ticket staff we put in a really great plan in august. We knew that we'd have limited capacity and it was a fan. I concept put forward. We offered every donor the opportunity to get a full refund on their tickets and that was without any caveat so if they got a full refund they would lose their seats for next year and that that was something that we really that was going to be tough because we knew a lot of people will take that refund put back into that our development ticket office went to those donors and said hey. Listen if you let us keep a portion or or the what we refund of your ticket portion donation portion and converted to a cova relief fund. We'll give you triple points towards your priority for seat back for seating so that effort and that was very meticulous and they put in a lot of hard work and we have the best fans in the nation we were. We were able to recoup twenty two million dollars of that that big number that we always strive for so that help put a big dent in what our financial situation was along with the fact that our business office has done a phenomenal job of being focusing on essential. Expense mission critical. And everybody's bought in and we are one of the few departments in the country. I would say that have not had to lay people off now. That fuller employs. And that's important to me. Because i'm a people person. People come first so a combination of what our development office and take it off so done and the business office were sitting in you know. We obviously still have challenges to go. And we're we're going through that but we're in. We're gonna come out of this. I think in pretty good shape when it's all said and done

McConnell, Romney vie for influence over Trump's trial
"Just yesterday. Yesterday we talked about how Pam Bondi one of Donald Trump's defense lawyers is corrupt herself and she goes out there on the Senate floor and goes after after the Biden's for corruption when she took twenty five thousand dollars from the trump foundation and is now representing trump but more importantly dropped the investigation instigation into trump university Luckily they didn't drop that investigation in New York and trump ended up having to pay twenty two million dollar settlement because he defrauded students But this is this is what we're dealing with right. So whenever the media pretends like both sides are equal. It's infuriating because you have one side. That is not family lying to the American people but helping cover up Donald Trump's criminal activity in the White House so let's move on to some real corruption when it comes to this impeachment process new reporting indicates that Donald Trump's lawyers have given thousands of of dollars to Mitch McConnell who is obviously overseeing the Senate impeachment trial now. It seems as though there might be a conflict of interest there but we live in a country where I heard this type of bribery is legal. And so you end up with senators who don't serve the best interests of the country. They will sell the country out in order to maintain their your cozy little relationship with their donors. So let me give you the details of what's going on former independent counsel Ken Starr and Robert Ray who both investigated former president. The Bill Clinton ahead of his impeachment contributed thousands of dollars to Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell last year before they joined the president's team so Star Star actually gave him twenty eight hundred dollars in July of last year and Ray gave him a fifty six hundred dollars in September of last year and and that's according to the Center for Responsive Politics which is trying to shed some light on what's going on some of the corrupt influences in the Senate impeachment trial in fact Senator Mitch McConnell was notoriously. Said this and he was very open and honest about it during a cable news appearance. Let's take a look everything I do during this yes I'm coordinating. With White House counsel there will be no difference between the president's position our position as to how to handle this. But we'll be working through through this process. Hopefully a fairly short period of time in total coordination with the White House counsel's office and the people who are representing the president in the Oil Senegal Exactly how we go forward. I'm going to coordinate with the president's lawyers so they won't be any difference between us on how to do this again. I'M GONNA take my cues from the from the presence lawyers. I'M GONNA take my cues from the president's lawyers because the president's lawyers have donated to my campaign and GotTa look out for their best insurance. Go Go ahead and sell the country out. It's this is this is this is our democracy.

"But increasingly read comment while ago posted about the sustainable futures report. The correspondent was concerned that i was trying into politics. The truth is everything is political while we can all do something toward solving the climate crisis. It is only governments and politicians who can make the changes of the magnitude that will make a difference. We are talking about system change after all. I know that many of you listening thing to the sustainable futures report are not in the u._k. I think that even you would have noticed that you k- politics are in some turmoil at the moment in fact this has been going on for three years but it's finally approaching day new mall. I say finally but everything may well have changed by the time you hear this anyway. They situation is the new prime minister has sought and received the authority of the queen to prorogue or suspend parliament of course she couldn't refuse but that's another story. The point at issue is that this would allow the prime minister to govern without parliament and allow how him to complete brexit the u._k.'s departure from the e._u. As he chooses i happen to believe that leaving the ear would be a disaster. Komo concerned if this prime minister can sideline parliament than any prime minister can do it on any issue. That's the reason i spent tuesday in london with your for europe and the yorker remain voice clap. I hope you saw us and hurt us on the evening news on bbc you see i tv and channel. Brexit is a sideshow by comparison with the climate crisis while breaks. It dominates u._k. Politics antics little of significance will be done on climate change all on many other issues that we've been neglecting over the last three years worrying agreeing also is the fact that many permanent brexit tears pacifica's climate deniers if i'm being political in opposing them and so be it in the climate crisis news this week the amazon fires why they're not the only fires why they he may not be as bad as you think a why they may be much more serious in ways you don't expect the future of the consumer society professor ian boyd retiring chief scientific advisor defa has set out his thoughts which looked very much like system change to me and the flying prince. I'll all common offsets making his travel common neutral the fun as in the amazon have been making big news news over the last couple of weeks that destroying the rainforest sante threatening an area which produces twenty percent of the world's oxygen on the amazon amazon rainforest is the lungs of the earth. Isn't it well. Yes no i strongly recommend that you listen to more or less a statistics sticks programme on bbc radio four which is available online and has carried out a detailed analysis of the situation they spoke to daniel net stunt of the earth innovation institute who explained that the fire houses have been identified by satellites are not burning rainforest generally the rainforest doesn't burn because it's so damp and humid what can happen is that low level fis can burn the leaf litter on the forest i flow and this can scorch the trunks of the trees and callum off these files are not visible from space and their effects are only evident once the trees have died off which may take a euro reversed point then is that the fires may be more extensive than we know at present. The fires that we can see from space are carrying on land which is being cleared. It's common practice for farmers to burn off weeds. Where land has been recently cleared. The trees are left to dry out and then abundant. One of the major consequences of these files is smoke soot in the atmosphere leading millions of people to seek treatment for respiratory diseases smoke from the falls code sao paulo which is mulling one thousand miles away from the amazon to be plunged into an apocalyptic darkness in the nineteenth of august the new president of brazil k. A. bowl sonata has taken a very hard line on the amazon weakening the brazilian environment ministry and turning a blind eye to illegal logging and deforestation he the amazon as a resource to be exploited by minus farmers and loggers as reported recently when the brazilian satellite satellite monitoring agency revealed significant increases in the rate of deforestation. The president denied that it was true on the director of the agency was dismissed. Does the amazon produce twenty percent of the world oxygen. It depends how you calculate but according to daniel napster it consumes a lot as as well and the net effect is more or less neutral. He sees the most important function of the forest as cooling effect as every every drop of water transpired by the trees evaporates. It cools the atmosphere you the effect of this across the whole forest is enough to have an effect on the climate of the whole world. Let's not forget the consequences of the fires and the deforestation policies for the indigenous peoples of the amazon amazon basin. They see the homes that food sources their way of life destroyed tribes that have been wolf generations a coming together against a common enemy enemy. Surely the global community should take that pont in our own interest as well as this president bolsonaro initially initially suggested the ngos had deliberately set the forest on fire in order to embarrass the government rejected the twenty two million dollars that politicians titians attending the reason g seven summit in biarritz pledged to help fight the fis. Can the world afford to stand by and let this destruction attraction continue. It's claimed that attention to the amazon leads the world over the fact that there are far more fis in africa but it's not the same thing writing in courts africa kolin bill senior lecturer in ecology university of york says fire is an essential part of the savannah savannah. The first to know is that the impact of a wildfire depends more on wet and what it is burning than how big it is or indeed how many fines there are the vast majority of the african fires currently earning seemed to be in grasslands and exactly the places we expect to see fires of this time of these files are usually by cattle famous as part of their traditional management of the savannahs where the animals graze some files are started to to stimulate new growth of nutritious cross for their animals others are used to control the numbers of parasitic takes own manage the growth of thorny we scrub without fuzz many savannahs and the animals they support wouldn't exist and lighting them as a key management activity in many any of the iconic protected areas of africa for instance.

allowed him to control the computer cursor with named Matthew Nagle and that people would published in two thousand six the looking at more than a decade of research and what I saw last night or cynical refinement on technology that is already existed and that is not necessarily better line it was actually a lot more reality based what I was expecting given some of the rhetoric that he's had around a I so it was a pleasant surprise in that respect yeah I mean he says that he wants to eventually make this as easy it safe and painless as lay sick I surgery at so talk a little bit about that what exactly is the device I know there's these flexible threads that they would implanted in the brain and that's basically what's going to help us communicate with computers yeah why this rather interesting most of the the system that has been heavily researched and people use a something called our rate which is a series of steps needles and I don't know if you know that your brain actually losing your skull and it's probably the only thing right now your heart beat among other things so every time your brain a little about that **** that goes sticker needles can create image making it hard for them to pick up the ball double tried during Clinton thing about a flexible thread is that they're harder to implants posted needles you can't just you know within the brain as you as you might be you tarmac well the news is essentially to to get it right yeah you you put some pictures in your article of this machine and I mean it looks kind of intimidating it's got a bunch of little microscopes that obviously has things that you can it looks like a high tech stitching machine and the I mean I would be sold this the place my head underneath that they you guys of the complaint these little fibers must said that the main reason for doing this presentation is recruiting I mean who wouldn't want to work on something that could potentially change the world and how people connect with computers it it's a very sci fi but it is also you know very forward thinking yeah there are a lot of folks who'd be interested in the and I thought numbers PhD student center last night you know yeah I've been having kind of a generation of and I don't know how much you know about academics but typically once they get tenure it's kind of hard to pride by the way right and so I think probably you know if you're a younger person who I want to say it's not like a very exciting opportunity there's an interesting moments during this presentation because they had a Q. and a and you on must revealed that they had a monkey who was able to control the computer with its brain did they elaborate on that at all I don't say that actually doing that people reacted I think I don't know how much have you satisfied that scientists are often very careful about what they're willing to reveal about experiments that they've done because if you talk about that for you submit them to a scientific journal it's a lot harder to get experiment publish wow I it's so crazy so I would just pay the final picture for us years down the road this is up and working they say that it can connect to your cell phone and work through an app what are we looking at say right now I think that the the sort of vision that you on house for healthy humans is pretty far off but I think the folks who experienced problems with that might be a lot closer so you're disabled and it allows you to connect to the community to Dr to be a little bit more independent that seems really processing and again you know I don't know that we're very close to having the SP ready even for that population in a world wide spread way for many many years yeah and they said that early experiments will be done with neuroscientists at Stanford University and they hope to have this in a human patient by the end of next year there's going to be a lot of hurdles with the FDA and everything I mean it sounds pretty crazy but you know you on my skin is you know I've known for this these big projects and stuff so we'll see if anything develops from this and I would add to that is you know going to jail I would take that the goal of having it and a person my next year with a little bit of a grain of salt it might turn out to be actually a is like absolutely not need you all of you got it first but it still is pretty exciting to see somebody personally fly Lizabeth Lobato deputy editor at the verge thank you very much for joining us travel let's see them aliens this is probably my favorite story of the

and see what's inside we spoke to Michael Bryce Sattler he's a reporter for The Washington Post for how all of this got started and how the airforce plants respond if people actually show up and you probably should it was intended to be a joke and I think it is tell a joke but as you said for up to a million people now the question is yeah now what contingent of the million or so people are whoever out yeah about this the store he might actually go out there at this point I think it's a legitimate question to ask I think you'll probably see some news stations out there you have to be who might show up the thing it's real and you want gas but I mean as you that it would take up a lot of steam over the weekend I think that's probably the most read story on the post website all throughout the weekend which is pretty remarkable in other news we at area fifty one has been trying being it yeah one thing I think I've everyone has a little bit of interest fifty one has that medical bonded to it and these people are like the contingent of them want to see what's out there so who started this out I mean it's been gaining traction as you said the media's been reporting on it I think that kind of helps blow it up right so my understanding is that it was a twitch streamer known for for streaming video game who operator works with someone who all right the page on Facebook just dedicated to making jokes nothing scary it then in that same vein I believe they created this joke a band and it gets picked up so much steam or so much interest that you start to lose sight of it this really did joke for a long time area fifty one and quote unquote didn't exist as far as the government was letting people know it was just kind of this place where people thought the government was housing aliens and housing spaceships well that was officially debunked in twenty thirteen when the CIA confirmed it right yeah a had published information thanks then that shows they want that flight testing ground out a training ground so we know what to realize point by that confirmation of the existence actually provided a lot of encouragement for people who are convinced that the government is hiding something update in twenty seventeen the Pentagon confirmed the existence of a twenty two million dollar program to analyze UFOs even just more recently I think the navy

"twenty two million dollar" Discussed on KCRW
"The Federal Trade Commission is ready to hit Facebook with the five billion dollar fine this follows the Cambridge analytica scandal two years ago which involve the sharing of data from tens of millions of Facebook users market place's Nancy Marshall gains are is following this Nancy put this fine into some context what do you think this would be a record of much bigger than the twenty two million dollar FTC fine and that was again Google back in twenty twelve but Facebook reported more than fifty five billion dollars in revenue last year so a fine of about five billion dollars of course is just a fraction of that a Facebook would be paying up to settle its violations of a previous FTC settlement which was also about user privacy but other than fine says the FTC have other ways of punishing Facebook absolutely it could impose more oversight on what Facebook does with user data similar to what Europe has done with consumers opting in giving permission for their data to be shared requiring their data be deleted the FTC could also hold CEOs like mark Zuckerberg personally responsible for problems like privacy breaches of the tail lights and Gartner research told me that is an especially effective form of regulation and the CEOs don't want to go to prison and they don't want to lose their fortune and if you know that your stock is going to get taken away this is the opposite of a bonus at all really and sent you to behave a certain way and lights and also says these types of approaches are more effective than fines because they're more long lasting have a bigger effect in the long run we won't know for sure with the FTC decides until this is all finalized and of course Congress could always pass laws requiring those types of protections lawmakers are holding hearings on Facebook this week Nancy thank you for this let's check the markets the Dow is essentially.
U.S. lawmakers criticize potential Facebook settlement with FTC
"Reportedly is nearing a landmark settlement with US Federal Trade Commission over its many privacy failures expect the headlines to be all about the dollar amount which is expected to be between three and five billion dollars easily dwarfing the current FTC fine record of just twenty two million dollars. But as access Dave McCabe rights today. There are several. Other things to watch for I will Facebook be forced to fundamentally change its business model, which is basically to collect user data, and then let advertisers target those users second how will the FTC track and analyze Facebook going forward, and as part of that who make sure the company remains in compliance and three and finally will the settlement include a personal penalty for Mark Zuckerberg, which arguably could have as much impact on Facebook's future direction as the larger company level fine. Because as we all know Zach isn't giving up that CEO spot anytime soon,

The journal learned that van is close to selecting synchrony financial as its credit card issuer and is hoping to announce the car this year coming up the general data protection regulation e u law was passed last year. Where your privacy and law stands today? Support for this podcast and the following message come from Deloitte, a global leader in digital transformation helping clients apply. Technologies like cloud an AI to their unique business challenges Deloitte got com slash look again. Last year, the general data protection regulation law. We know it has GDP are went into effect in the EU the legislation cracks down on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. And if you need a quick primer. The Wall Street Journal's Catherine at stop has more. This is Europe's landmark data protection regulation. It's years in the making, and there there was a lot of alarm before it came into effect and really in the early days after it took effect about the very strict safeguards privacy safeguards that it forces companies to take if forces them to be transparent with people about how their data is used forces companies to disclose to regulators within seventy two hours if they've had a breach of anybody's personal data. So a lot of totally new things for companies that had the really consulting lawyers like crazy and changing their business models and on top of all those new. Do restrictions in that law. It also came with really high fines of up to four percent of a company's global turnover or twenty million euros around twenty two million dollars, whichever is higher. So not only did companies really need to scramble to make sure that they could comply with the law. They are also scared that they could be hit with very high fines if they violated it. There was a lot of kind of confusion in the early days. What what provisions apply here too? What kinds of companies, you know, I think the Lisbon great for lawyers because they had a lot of work helping companies figure out how to actually comply with us a lot because it's very long and complex. If you remember many companies were concerned about the high ceiling for fines. I contacted regulators in every single EU country and in Germany, there are sixteen regulators that can actually impose finds under this law. So I contacted all of them to and I asked them have you imposed fines so far. And if so how many? How higher the fines and a lot of regulators. Haven't announced this kind of information publicly at some of them have. And what I found is that despite all of this concern that we heard and have been hearing over the last year from companies about these potentially very high fines of up to four percent of global turnover. There really haven't been any funds that come even close to that the highest fine. We've we've heard of under this law. So far was in January. It was the French regulator imposed a fine against Google for fifty million euros, which sounds really high. It is less than one percent of Google's global turnover though. And after that the second highest penalty was for around four hundred thousand euros. They're actually been sixteen a European countries that haven't issued any finds it at all. And then there are some that have issued quite a few. So in Germany, there's there have been more than fifty fines under this largest in the last several months so with a year behind us where does that legislation stand? It could really. Pick up especially because we see some some regulators that haven't issued any finds yet. So far are still investigating really big data breaches that we know about for example, the UK regulator is investigating Marriott's data breach. That they reported last year that exposed personal data from over three hundred million people or up to that amount. So it's possible. We will see some some more big fines. It's also possible that they're just cultural differences between these regulators in different countries. And that some think fines are the way to go to send a message to companies that this is not what you do with with people's personal data. Whereas other regulators may not issue, you know, financial penalties. But they might ask a company to stop certain practice. You're probably still wondering about those fines, even though it seems that companies worst fear of you know, being hit with these really high fines of up to four percent of their global turnover hasn't really turned out to. True so far. At least what we are seeing is companies are concerned about the huge disparity between some of these fines because the lowest fine was for one hundred and one dollars against private person. So companies are saying we just don't understand how these fines are calculated. We can't really predict how a regulator decides. Whether to find us at all, you can read more about the general data protection regulation, and where it stands at wsJcom had to WSJ pro cyber security for more reporting from the newsroom in New York.

Nike, Tiger Woods & the Long Game
"Woods has just won his fifteenth. Major. And I think it's the fifth time. Now, he's one the US masters and to me what is interesting about. This is not the Gulf because quite frankly, I don't really follow the golf. But to me, it's interesting story in branding because Nike who have stuck with him since he went pro back in ninety six through two thousand nine when he had he's big six scandal. I think it was two thousand seventeen he had a big drink-driving issue, which became big news. They stuck with him. All the way through out saying, listen, the guys got some issues. He's working through them. We're gonna be there with him. And today this aying that the coverage of just the fun around of the masters the brand exposure that Nike just purely by the Nike Swoosh all over his uniform all over his his clothes was worth that exposure was worth in the final round alone. My Jew was within excessive twenty two million dollars. And that doesn't count. All of the clothes that they sold out of all of the Tiga branded clothes in peril base old out of in the store, and to me, the interesting story about that is that it kind of exemplifies that branding is really alone guy. It's for the long term. It's not a short term play. And for whatever reason Nike have decided, not whatever reason, I think, we know the reason Tiga clearly has identified himself as a champion of Gulf. They identified that early. They said listen, he's personally shoes way on a drawer line. We're going to separate the personally shoes from the professional Gulf because from out brand perspective. That's what we stand for. Now. We can argue all day long with that's a right or wrong moral stance. But I think the funny thing about sports that I think people tend to forgive those kind of personal failures if you like as long as you perform a professional scale and go and kill somebody infidelities and things like that. Frankly, don't seem to matter a great deal when it comes to sports, certainly from a brand value perspective. At least not in the long term. And again, that's where branding goes. I think it's also an interesting story about the brand of Tiger Woods himself. He's started off as a champion. And he got went through some issues got through those issues come out the other side, and in many ways, I think he probably wins a few more fans out of something like this as well. And again going back to that issue of what works, and what doesn't work for this particular type of Saguenay if you like the sports athletes segment of branding. If we want to look at that for whatever those reasons are, right, wrong, or indifferent. It seems that the market consumers of decided, well, we actually don't care so much. If these guys do the wrong thing, we understand the human. We understanding to make mistakes we only really care about them as professional athletes as long as do anything to dressed. So I think from a brand perspective again, the other listen to learn is that what seems to be black. White maybe in any other sigma the world any other facet of your life. Doesn't necessarily hold true when it comes to the brand if the market for your particular brand has decided and declared we'll those things not important is not suggesting that we should all go off and try the Tiger Woods apprised brandy. But I do think it's an interesting observation that the the consumers seem to have forgiven him the market seems to have forgiven him for his failures that acknowledged that. He's might mistake. He's acknowledges made a mistake. He's come up. He's got through it. And now everyone is back on the train. So again, not from a brand. Sorry, not from sporting perspective, not from a personal perspective. But I think purely from a brand perspective. It's a really interesting case study what's going on with Tiger Woods over the last few years. And where it's ended up today already.
The Story of GE's $22 Billion Writedown
"Electric is scheduled to update its financial outlook on Thursday and the struggling conglomerate might be asked to explain the massive amounts of goodwill that it's recorded then written down. The Wall Street Journal's Michael Rapaport has written a piece about how GE built up then wrote down twenty two billion dollars in goodwill. Michael joins us in our studio. Michael first of all tell us what goodwill is and how GE has employed over the past few years. Goodwill is an asset that a company recognizes when it buys another company it basically reflects the difference between the costs it paid require the of the company and the value of the assets as it acquire like its properties in real estate. And the difference essentially goes on a company's balance sheet is goodwill, but gee, made some fairly unusual decisions. When it bought the French company Alstom MAC in twenty fifteen and recorded thirteen point five billion dollars in goodwill. Even though it had only paid him at ten billion dollars for the company, and that was followed by smother unusual decisions in they. Boosted that amount of goodwill more than seventeen billion. They kept all that good role in their Brooks. Even when they arguably should should have taken a right down right down in value when their business started going sour until he finally took that big twenty two million dollar right down to the fall of twenty eighteen you, quote, a Penn State university associate professor of accounting ever cats as saying that while GE's accounting follows the rules. He couldn't recall another case in which the goodwill accompany recognized from a deal exceeded his costs, and you quote him saying the justification is on the aggressive side. That's right. He's a candidate with when accounting rules, which are very elaborate and very complex in terms of how come to calculates the amount of goodwill. It puts on its books, but as in some other areas to the Wall Street Journal reporter on the past jeez. Accounting was seen as aggressive by. But pushing the boundaries by by number of accounting experts, and these maneuvers that you tell us about is this how GE ended up totaling twenty two billion dollars in goodwill. As does it add up to that? Well, the good-will. Geez. Books comes from from a bunch. Of past acquisitions, and then also was only the biggest most recent of them a lot of goodwill went into their at their power unit. That started having such problems. What happens is that a company has to test its goodwill every year, it has to that the value of the reporting unit that contains a good role is still high enough to justify carrying if you'll be reporting. You're the Tony worth five billion dollars. But his ten billion dollars worth of goodwill. That doesn't make sense that that means that value has to be written down. Gene kept testing that goodwill as as was required until it finally in the fall of two thousand eighteen reach a conclusion that the value of of some of its power reporting units could no longer support Terry men of goodwill. And that's when I took the right down, right? Isn't it questionable because the right down has the effective shielding and assets problems from investors aren't they titled to now. Yes, they are. And what happens is that keeping all that goodwill and jeeze books that contributes towards shareholder equity its book value there that the value actually in the company actually owned by investors having that on there. Kind of mask the fact that when you take out that goodwill which afterwards intangible did it doesn't produce anything for the company. Geez. Book value was actually sharply negative since about mid twenty sixteen having all that goodwill, essentially, what g did import was recognized al-shams acid says goodwill as opposed to some of the more tangible assets, they lowered the value of some of the tangible assets, while increasing the value of the goodwill that benefit g because mo- many types of assets you have to they lose valuable for a period of time.
Lawmakers grill pharmaceutical executives over drug prices, but CEOs avoid big pledges
"Johnson invested eight point four billion dollars in research and development last year in the search for medical breakthroughs democrat Maria Cantwell of Washington state press, the executives to acknowledge that the government could help bring prices down. I'm asking a really basic question like the VA's ability to negotiate on drug prices. Do you think that states having that same ability drives down price? I would say that the VA would get a lower price in the states. We get a lower price. If you're willing to go into an environment where that could be imposed by states were the federal government. The here he comes as President Trump targets drug costs. He's proposed ending Medicare and Medicaid rebates to middlemen. And cutting the price Medicare pays for some drugs at long last, the drug companies in foreign countries will be held accountable for how they rigged the system against American consumers today. Senators threatened congressional action several zeroed in on Richard Gonzales CEO of abbey. The maker of Humira it's the best selling drug in the world used for rheumatoid arthritis and other diseases yearly sales nearly twenty billion dollars over the last six years the drugs prices doubled to thirty eight thousand dollars a year more than one hundred Abby patents and deals with other drugmakers mean that lower price competitive. Hitters will not hit the US market before twenty twenty three how many patents one hundred and thirty six patent one hundred and thirty six patents on one drug. But well, remember Humira is like nine different drugs or ten different drugs. So I just sit stabbing. Now's the same molecule it is the same molecule, but it treats different conditions. And if you look at that that portfolio. So you use the molecule to treat different conditions. You can get a patent on that that treatment. Certainly, I know this gorgeous topic is the subject of within the jurisdiction of the finance committee. But those of us like you and me, and who are also on the judiciary committee that has jurisdiction over the patent system. I think this is an area that we need to look in through our judiciary committee Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon the panel's top democrat asking solace. If his compensation which was twenty two million dollars in two thousand seventeen is tied to Humira sales. Would you make a smaller bonus? If you drop the price of Humira Humira was one element of a set of financial factors that were evaluated as part of my compensation. It's obviously a very significant product for us. So it's clear that would be part of that evaluation. I'd like that with in writing within ten days medicine, some CEOs like Merck's, Ken Frazier. Said they were willing to do things like eliminating discounts that help protect their market shares overall companies defended their practices. No, one company can unilaterally lower prices without running into financial and operating disadvantages by the hearings N widen. And other lawmakers said they were far from satisfied. I've heard a lot of happy talk this morning. Today's hearing featured more bipartisan criticism than in the past. But it's far from clear what action congress will take as drug prices continue to
"twenty two million dollar" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN
"This tax cut would reach approximately eighty six percent of tax filers. Wow, Everts proposal would devote three hundred forty million dollars in state income tax revenue to middle class tax relief under income tax policy implemented in the past eight years in Wisconsin just last year eleven filers in Wisconsin making more than thirty million dollars a year. We're projected to be eligible for twenty two million dollars in tax breaks. Nearly eighty percent of Scott Walker's giveaway goes to filers making more than a million dollars a year while the average tax cut for filers making under three hundred thousand dollars a year. Is just five dollars. So we need to make that a little more fair. So the Republican legislature got to work for Tony Iverson got to work crafting that middle class tax cut. We will get into this in more depth. But I want to go to some breaking news producer, Dave. This is Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson providing an update on the arrest and criminal charging against empire. Actor jussie smollet. Let's go to the chief look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol and see an opportunity to manipulate the symbol to further his own public profile. How can an individual who's been embraced by the city of Chicago turnaround and slap everyone in this city in the face by making these false claims. Bogus. Police reports. Calls real harm. They do harm to every legitimate victim. Who's in need of support by police and investigators as well as the citizens of the city? Chicago host one of the largest pride parades in the world. And we're proud of that as a police department and also has a city. We do not know will we ever tolerate hate in our city whether that hate is based on an individual's sexual orientation race or anything else. I'm offended by what's happened. And I'm also angry. I love the city of Chicago. And the Chicago police department warts and all this publicity. Stunt was a Scottish Kogyo didn't earn and certainly didn't deserve make things worse. Accusations within this phony attack received national attention for weeks. Celebrities, news commentators and even presidential candidates weighed in on something that was choreographed by an actor. I smell it attempted to gain attention by sending a false letter that relied on racial, homophobic, and political language. When that didn't work. Malate pay thirty five hundred dollars to stage this attack and draft Chicago's reputation through the mud and the process, and why this stunt was orchestrated by Smolin because he was dissatisfied with his salary. So he concocted a story about being attacked. Dr city has problems. We know that. We have problems that have effective people from all walks of life. And we know that. But to put the national spotlight on Chicago for something that is both egregious and untrue is simply shameful. I'm also concerned about what this means moving forward for hate crimes. Now, of course, the Chicago police department will continue to investigate all reports of these types of incidents with the same amount of vigor that we did with this one. My concern is that hate crimes would now publicly be met with a level of skepticism that previously. Didn't it didn't happen. Smolin was treated as a victim throughout this investigation until we receive evidence that led detectives in another direction. I couldn't be more proud of the relenting detective work that went into this investigation. I couldn't be more proud of every investigated. Played a part in it. Detective work that we saw in. This case is indicative of the work that our detectives do every day in this city. This case in particular. Involved hours of video evidence, which when combined with old fashioned police work uncovered the truth. These detectors deserve all the credit in the world for carefully analyzing the leads and the evidence for weeks before coming to their conclusion I'd also like to thank the FBI for their helping this investigation. The FBI is partnership with CPI has been pivotal in this particular case, I only hope that the truth about what happened receives the same amount of attention that the host did continue to pray but his troubled young man who resorted to both drastic in legal tactics to gain attention. I'll also continue to pray for our city asking that we can move forward from this and began to heal. Now, I'd like to call up commander Edward wide. Nikki who personally led this patient and deliberate investigation to walk everyone through how the Chicago police department arrived at this point that was Chicago police superintendent, Eddie Johnson. I apologize for the rapid. Switch from governor Everts tax cuts. But I want to get some more details on this. Let's go back to this news conference. You're listening to the Dan O'Donnell show. Okay.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Apple released its earnings yesterday afternoon. And although it met its lowered expectations revenue from phones was down. Fifteen percent over the same quarter last year and the future trend is also down for years. Apple smartphone strategy has been to make premium devices with a premium price tag, a thousand bucks is basically the starting price for a new flagship iphone, but those prices are hard to swallow in China and India markets apple is depending on to grow. It's global market share. And even here in the US consumers just aren't upgrading their phones as much as they used to duly. Ask is principal analyst at Forrester research. I asked her if apple can keep commanding such high prices, they've relied on a very fluid base of consumers in the past that could afford to buy not only devices, but services and subscriptions within the ecosystem. And I think one of the things it's hard to tell. I think one of the things they're not gonna tell us is it inhibiting their ability to attract new consumers into the ecosystem. Yeah. It's interesting because it feels like. It was a strategy based on sort of an old economic model of ongoing recovery where you know, if you tie it to the broader economy, it was based on the idea that there'd be an economic recovery in wages would continue to go up and there'd be lots of consumer spending. And we're kind of not seeing that. Yeah. So we're not seeing that. And I think if you look at the opportunities for growth, it's either get the same people to upgrade faster or it's attract new consumers into your market. And you look at who those new consumers are and they're simply not as a flu inter as wealthy as the existing base there. Either young or they're living in markets where there's lower wages overall. I think the trouble with these large. Consumer electronics companies is is the smartphone came along at this time. And it's been like an amazing amazing ten to fifteen year right at this point. But there isn't like another it devices that's coming after it. That's going to make up for the revenue with the slower replacement cycles and the slower uptake from consumers in the market today. So what do you think comes next? I mean, some manufacturers are sort of bucking this trend. Oneplus is going with a cheaper phone is that overly simplistic as an answer or would cheaper phones. Help sell more phones if I were smartphone manufacturer, I would test the market with less expensive devices. And Molly I say that based on someone who studies consumer behavior the devices that are selling now in the market for a thousand dollars eleven hundred twelve hundred dollars are amazing for photography and playing video games and watching TV and when we see five G come out. It's going to be awesome. That said the vast majority of the activity that consumers are doing on these phones, it's still around communication instant messaging, texting my friends triaging, Email for work. And I don't need the latest greatest device to do that. And so I think it is reasonable to expect the consumers will say, hey, how do I really use this device, and do I really need something that caused the thousand twelve hundred dollars to triage, my Email, duly ask is principal analyst at poster research. Ch- according to the motley fool apple shipments were down ten percent in China in the third quarter of last year and down fifty percent in India over twenty eighteen. And now for some related links. We talk a lot about the Chinese market. But India is huge for smartphone makers shipments almost doubled between two thousand fourteen and twenty eighteen to one hundred and fifty million phones according to analysts and ZD net report out of New Delhi says that for a few years apple was selling its older models in India for low prices, which wasn't that thrilling because we're talking about the iphone five c here people. But then apple started pushing more expensive bones sometimes even selling models for more than they were selling for in the US that didn't fly either. And it happened just as Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi and one plus came into India with super cool tricked out smartphones that were half the price of the iphone. So you could have a heck of old iphone for the same price as brand new flagship smartphone from one plus easy choice. The one plastics was released in India in twenty. Eighteen ziti net. Says its old a million units in twenty two days for comparison apple sold one point seven million units in India in all of twenty eighteen combined and on a completely different note. I totally missed that earlier this month the department of defense released a document about a twenty two million dollar program by the Defense Intelligence Agency. That was researching warp drives invisibility cloaks wormholes star gates an alien tracking. I mean say what you want about government spending. But this is how we got the internet. Also, apparently, according to an old blog post, I found about secret military projects the CIA once tried putting listening devices on house cats, not every idea is a hit you guys.

"twenty two million dollar" Discussed on Niners Nation
"He was coming off of injury. But he signed a hundred and twenty two million dollar deal in two thousand sixteen in two thousand seventeen when was injured the team went four and twelve and now Angela has a twenty four point four million dollar cap hit in two thousand eighteen that was his cap numbers. So that was kind of the place at the colts were working with and yet through that they had four tier one players. They had Andrew luck t y Hilton this year, they drafted Quinton Nelson and Darius Leonard so it's a mix of players that they had drafted previously and retained and developed and then new players that they added that that just absolutely nailed the draft. But the thing that I thought was interesting about the Colt was that they also had strengthened the secondary. They had to tier two players. So those are going to be your kind of core foundational players and to tier three players in the secondary. They had safety Mike Mitchell. He's a ten year vet not under contract for twenty nineteen definitely in that. Tear me cooker first round draft pick and twenty seventeen at corner, they've got peer to peer he was a one year value free agent that they signed because he had a peck injury. And so he returned but played at similarly high level and you've got Quincy Wilson second round draft pick in two thousand seventeen so their secondary was one of their strengths. They had great defense at stretches throughout the year. And they did. So with a mix of rookies players. They've developed transition that transitional tier and they've got a core player in there as well in Mali cooker. And I think that overall you've got a blend of different tiers that created a strong unit at one of the more important positions that you need on defense. Right. That's kind of the next step. Right. So once you the quarterback situation determines and a lot of ways the number of resources that you have available to spend right in in terms of free agency dollars, of course. But then from there what you choose to do with those resources as kind of a next probably more important part, really? And where you're devoting though. Draft picks where you devoting that free agent spending too. And so yeah, I think you look at teams like the colts who have been able to get players in the secondary there. They drafted they have a couple players kind of in the tier three tier four range that are looking at pass rushers. So I think you have guys that they're going after key spots for those. And I think that's the important thing. Right. Even though I think you could argue that like Nelson may be doesn't quite fit that I'm not like necessarily totally in love with all their moves. But the point is that they're kind of they're still going after that was a look at more. The offense of line is a whole protecting. Andrew luck giving him clean pockets to help passing efficiency. Right. So these are all things that they've done. Well, that was contributed to them coming out and having a stronger than I think a lot of people expected, and you think about their production, which is probably one of their weaker components this year, but they had a tier four player developmental player. They drafted in two thousand eighteen and write Ray. And then they have Jamal sheared which similarly to what the Niners last year is a traditional player. He is a veteran that they signed.

"Speak of a sacred place associated with the Giesen Acropolis called jackal lake here. It is. Fun, right. Yeah. I think the most interesting part of this theory is that potentially people who've studied those pyramids in those formations for thousands of hundreds in whatever years have been studying the wrong, right? That's like all of ancient aliens is like they have the all the pyramids wrong. They're not tombs there. If you put like hydrochloric acid in this side, and this gas, and this idea, basically, make a giant power thing. There's tons of theories about how they have everything wrong. But who knows well? Yeah. I mean, I think. Like, if you're look at that statue, it looks bizarre. And you're like what is that? Why why is the head small wise that human on a dog or lion, whatever? And it doesn't add up. So I think it's interesting to think about why it didn't last in its original state. If it's original state wasn't what it is now. Yeah. I don't know. I just I don't know if that's something that people think or know of or like if you went to visit the sphinx, if they were like, the original head is gone and this headed here. But we don't know what the original head wasn't even know what like is taught about the now. Yeah, I personally did not ever hear of theory that it was a new business, and it's not a lion. I had always been taught that it was a giant lion island thing is kind of whatever to me. I think that's just kind of reaching because I feel like whatever lines or markings that they attribute to it being under one. I mean, you can see there's like. On the walls of the pit of where it sitting there's water arose in you can tell you know. And it's just it's just a weird thing. It's weird. Like, that's the whole argument for the pyramids. It's like, well, if they were built as tombs, you know, as people have told us, they were why didn't you find anything? Why are there like an all of Egypt? There's all these higher everywhere. Everything's beautiful. Like an inside the pyramids. There's nothing. There's no re writing on the walls. There's no they never recovered any bodies of kings and jewels. And you know, but there is that people in their ransacked everything, but still wiser no beautiful writing on all the walls like having all the temples and everything. Whatever. I just thought it was really interesting because I had never heard that the sphinx might actually theory be a newest nor have I thought it was really I mean fun. If you're a look at the image, right? We can try to link it. But what is the website again, ancient pages? So if you look at that image, it does like Tom the shape of the the article is called what was the sphinx, and what's wrong with its body and head looks more normal with the mockup of the tall ears, and the long snout, Mike Lynn, the flat, the flat back 'cause that's how you know. That's how I feel like the statute arrested statute looks already. That was really fun. And one of my favorite newer things that I've learned that. I thought was really interesting because who knows it could have been a line, and that could be it's a regional head for all. I know. I don't know. I was always taught in school that it was a giant lion and talk. Okay. You have more to the lessons really chart for this. Again, take it with a grain of salt. Whatever it is. For decades Americans were told that area, fifty one didn't really exist, and that the US government had no official interest in aliens, or you hoes everyone that really believed the stuff where you're like. Tinfoil hat people for really longtime the Pentagon officially confirmed that there was in fact, a twenty two million dollar government program to collect analyze anomalous aerospace threats UFO's and they release that information in December of two thousand seventeen literally last year. December twenty seventeen when the Pentagon actually admitted to this existing but all of us have been aware of it. Right..
