How have you sort of come to this. Methodology this way of work You know compared to some of your some of the other doctors who may not take that same approach. We'll it's actually kind of a interesting story. It's a little bit of a selfish story. I was working on a guy who was early sixties And he just sold his company for twenty twenty two million dollars at the time. That was the biggest amount of money ever heard anybody making. And i thought oh my gosh i asked him. I said what are you gonna do. I would go to italy. There's this whole big world war. Two trail i would take and he has stopped. My knees hurt so bad. When i get to top of the stairs up to sit down and rest. He said when i walk my dog around the block. I've gotta sit and rest. I'm not going to italy there. Some restaurants i want some tv shows. I'm gonna catch up on. And so i thought to myself. This man is young. he's sixty. He's got twenty million dollars at least and his life is over. He's just going to sit there and do nothing. 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.

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. I'm Tanya boost does thanks for listening.
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.
"twenty two million dollars" Discussed on The Money Guy Show
"This is his quote, this is the part that was so valuable. He says it's a Russian roulette equation, usually win occasionally die make financial sense for someone who gets a piece of the company's upside, but does not share in its outside. But this strategy would be madness for Berkshire rational people. This is bold face this rational, people don't risk what they have and need for what they do. Don't have. And don't need that's worth repeating rational. People. Don't risk what they have in need for what they don't have. And don't need. That's the dudes poet. It's unbelievable. How simple that is. In often. We in our own lives kind of screw that up the Russian roulette equation works out most of the time. But occasionally that is I mean that is a gives you a perfect narrative understanding, here's Warren's take equity our level of equity capital is a different story berkshires re forty nine billion is unmatched in corporate America. But you know, when you I hear number three hundred forty nine billion, do you know what Warren sorted with nineteen sixty five. It was twenty two million dollars. That was his initial investment. Berkshire Hathaway so unbelievable now we're three hundred and forty nine billion. He's talking about how this compound interest is magical just happened equity. If especially keeping the retained earnings can have tremendous value. Now, how do we relate this personal finance because there's definitely a correlation? One of the things I thought it was beautiful is questionable one are you using debt wisely? Do you operate under the same assumption that when you utilize debt you're playing Russian roulette is it something where you want to win most of the time, but occasionally you're dead. Or is it something you ought to handle a little more care? And then Secondly, are you taking advantage of advanced strategies that might make sense for your situation. He talks about how the deferred income tax is built into the unrealized gains in his equity holdings, and how because of that he's been able to grow tax free until he realizes that a lot of the equity capital inside a Berkshire Hathaway. Well, that's no different than you recognizing. Maybe you're someone who has a four one K plan that has really cool things like self directed brokerage options or after tax contributions are in service withdrawals. If you're someone who lives in that world where there are some advanced benefits you might want. To think about taking advantage of those. Because those are how you go from just a really good financial situation to a great highly optimized highly efficient financial situation, I was thinking about the fact these talking about how also the tax efficiency because he uses as interest free loan yet. Because if you have a lot of trading and turnover yet, the government makes you pay taxes on any gains and other things like that think about with mutual fund companies with active management that are constantly issuing out those capital gains. If you bond index fund this so much more tax efficient. It just allows you to let your money keep working and keep strong rowing instead of being distributed out and paying taxes on it. Like Warren would do it lesson number six, and this this isn't really my bucket list. But Warren has a handful of human beings that when they read this letter, you gotta just blonde. Joe this, you know, how badly I'll want warranted dote on me the way that he doubts on the handful Agasi talks broad this could be my letter to you know. Retiring you write this letter to me, that's probably what it would be lesson. Number six, surround yourself with good people. This is under the section of gyco and Tony nicely. What an awesome appropriate name. And here's what I thought was interesting is that Tony join gyco in nineteen sixty one at the age of eighteen that's crazy. Listen this career journey because this is this is exceptional and unusual at the same time. So and then so warrant in them didn't even start buying gyco. We all know that. Berkshire Hathaway owns gyco insurance. It all started in nineteen seventy six Warren liked the currency. Oh at that time..
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 dollars" 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. But I'm holding out hope for the wormholes. I'm Molly would and that's marketplace tech.

Not exactly because get this. The morning of trial about an hour and a half before it started the city's lawyer filed a notice of appeal with the Ohio supreme court. That's a notice saying, hey, we're planning on filing something with you guys. The city had assumed that the notice would stop the clock on the trial, and retroactively did an appeals court later ruled that the trial should not have gone forward with that notice pending. So now as I write this in twenty eighteen the verdict and Arnold blacks case has been overturned. Now cello is the one appealing. He's not sure if he'll prevail. You might have to retry this case. Civil lawsuits are supposed to lead to reform. That's the hope that the city will fix the problems that are costing a lot of money. We talked to eleven attorneys do civil rights cases in cuyahoga county. One attorney said, yeah, bring it. I have no problem pulling the trigger against these Cleveland, the other tenets, no way they said it's not worth it. Said one. I have a business to run said another. We heard there's no reward. We heard it's a bitch. We heard I turned out any case that comes from east Cleveland and it's heartbreaking. In other words, Arnold black is a cautionary tale which makes the cello nuts. He doesn't see it that way, and he says, black doesn't either the city hasn't paid Arnold black dime, but he has gotten quite a bit of money as a result of the lawsuit from funding company that loans plaintiffs money based on likely verdicts. That's a whole financial industry apparently. But more to the point cello says, there's now a public record of how east Cleveland was running its police department. This case, this. Verdict was national news because it went to trial. I am talking about it right now. I asked a cello, can you understand though how someone like Jesse Nickerson might not want to spend six plus years fighting the city, especially if they live there NATO said, yeah, but if a client did tell him that he'd push back with a speech that goes something like this. We are the police of the police by constitutional mandate. Thank God. This has got to be about. Do you understand what's happening? Do you understand what the lives are that are that are at stake here? It does impact us all you're the guy who snaked out, you know, got out of the way the bully for a few bucks. Could job does it did but did your community matter to you and if and if the response comes back? No, it doesn't. I don't do that. I'm duty-bound to listen to my client. I get that, but understand what's going to continue and we'll have that conversation what we were responsible about it, like with my own brother or sister, look, bro. I get it. You don't want to be in the fight, but here's what's going to happen the bullied on the streets going to do this again and again, and again, can you live in that town. If you settle for peanuts like Jesse, digicell says, you're not going to get real change. You're going to get peanuts, and now you're living in your same town along with the same people.
