Nba play-offs the celtics are out got bounced by the nets as everybody expected and coach. Brad stevens is moving to president role as danny aines retires. So i guess they're gonna look for new coach there in being town the lightning in. Nhl playoffs are big to nothing on the hurricanes in the current scores. as times of taping. We'll see the wizards try to hold off. Elimination against the sixers. Or up or down by a point. And the hawks are up on the nixon a close game and then the canadians are up on the jets. A few i got a theory here. I feel like we do. These scores will specifically so you can check in on the scores. Zero value to our listener. By the time the show cones. But just. because you're interested. I enjoy because i get to hear the scores but right it's more self edification show. They turned every day. But it's it's it's a proprietary algorithm. It is it's very proprietary. And don't worry i'll have an update on the scores for you. Question them for real. I have a question I haven't watched a ton hockey playoffs. Put yeah are there. I would assume think this is correct other less fight in hockey playoffs because of the power play differential like the games having so much weight to them. You don't wanna be down on me. Don't wanna give up stupid penalties for sure. But i think that in the playoffs though there's some very meaningful fights like if it does go down and if it does happen from the harley like could like the tide in a series like like The the caps want it tom. Wilson had a huge fight in game five against the lightning totally changes series and like the caps went on to win the cup. But i do think they happened less. Probably because you guys don't wanna take penalties you got a rally. Your teams like managers will get thrown out a game sometimes on purpose to rally teens. Did it the lacrosse tournament. That's exactly it when you're when your backs against the wall. Sometimes you gotta pull a coach bum and getting a fight in the playoffs. Yeah sure the parents would they paid for. That's right Number four amc stock more than doubled again while since we last talked about it a day ago. Sixty nine dollars on wednesday two hundred fifty percent surge in the last week. Five hundred forty five percent in the last month world. These people getting all the money to put in this fucking stock. Where's this all this money. Even coming from it's the wall street bets crew. They're just short squeezing the shit out of it. I think it was happening. Yeah okay good for you. See what happened there with those burglars robinhood place to fuck it. Of course robin hood. That's the reason i don't hold. Anc stock i had all my robinhood money at amc stock. But then i got rid of all of it because robin hood suspend straining and they did it again when. Amc hit another all time. I mean it just it just makes their names. So much more ironic. Every time this happens. I think that it's conscious too. Big joe little man. yeah yes. Did they do where you can't you can't buy or you can't say you couldn't sell either. I think you couldn't sell it should be. It should be legal is it. Didn't they do it with game stopped. Do everything claim it's top down. They claim that the new york stock exchange is like well which could be true. I mean either way it's totally fucked to figure out a way to beat the big guy and then the big bend the rules to beat you but robin hood isn't as not great. Not an app probably should change to like skull fuckers or something like that. The skull puckers comahue. Yeah i've got so much money tied up in them right now with crypto that i'm scared to get out because i know it's going to take like a fucking week if i sell and then i'm afraid someone's going to go way up because i wanna put all that shit and coin base or somewhere else.

Why Square Stock Dropped Today

"Came in solidly higher-than-expected shares of square though are down seven percent this morning. Because growth is slowing. There's always a lot to get to with square so when you look at all the numbers. Tell me what stood out to you. Yes for me. I really focused. When i swear on really their burgeoning business which you know is the cash shop. It's funny you mentioned the war on cash and they have this kind of conveniently named cash app so it was really some of the numbers that the shop drew in the quarter and for that matter the fiscal year one of them is one hundred sixty two percent. Increase your ear. Gross profit of the cash up In a lot of that is being fueled by new users and specifically cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. So i think one number is not in throughout the entire twenty twenty fiscal year over three million people transacted bitcoin in some regard which was a two hundred fifty percent increase in volume compared to fiscal year. Nineteen and then they also even gave some gave some information on january twenty twenty one st year with over one million new buyers of bitcoin so really just interesting kind of figures throughout the entire report. Kind of the bitcoin. Being such an important part of that cash app is what really stood out to me. Yeah and that was certainly part of the headline squares square announcing it had purchased one hundred seventy million dollars worth of bitcoin during the quarter so cash app is squares version of ven. Mo- it's interesting to see the reaction from the start because on the one hand. This is a stock. Even factoring in the drop today. The stock is up almost two hundred percent in the past year so i understand particularly traders on wall street with a shorter term mentality saying alright. It's been a good year. Let's let's take a little money off the table. That sort of thing on the other hand. I don't know the overall market cap of square is just over one hundred billion dollars. It seems like a business with a lot of room to run. And i was listening to some of the comments the. Cfo made around what they are. Seeing it square in terms of how sticky the cash app is in terms of the other parts of squares business. How it's this thing that sort of bringing people in and once they're in the square ecosystem. They they start trying other parts of the business. So i don't know like would you look i get the. Pe ratio is somewhere north of five hundred. But when you when you look at everything that square has going on do you look at today as a buying opportunity for people who maybe had square on their watchlist and thought well okay. It's it's seven percent cheaper than it was yesterday. Yeah actually i was looking at. You know over the last couple of weeks how it's performed and through last week year to date. I think it was up. Something like twenty seven percent and then you have over the last couple of days. You know ten percent or so pullback and these are always the days as as a long term investor that i look for you know have a business. That's in my opinion burgeoning. Having fiscal year revenue grow over one hundred percent granted excluding bitcoin. That's only about fifteen or twenty percent but as long term investor. I do think this is an opportunity. I'm not personally a shareholder of square. But it's a fascinating business to me and we've seen so much traction and really their largest growing business in terms of bitcoin transaction cryptocurrency and things like that which really doesn't seem to be dying the craze three or four years ago now. And you know it's all of a sudden habit a two year hiatus and it's got right back in the thick of things you know which squares really benefiting from. So you know. I think if you're a long term investor willing to hold for a couple of years and not too worried about a lot of volatility which has realizing probably will continue to experience over the coming months over coming quarters over the coming years I think this is an opportunity to dip your feet in or maybe increase your position a little bit lows.

With Milk Sales Up, Dairy Industry Revives Iconic Got Milk Campaign

"From, wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Thursday August twenty seventh something strange happened over the last few months we started drinking milk again think it might have had anything to do with pandemic for the last several years. It's felt like the dairy industry been singing swan songs milk sales fell thirteen percent from twenty ten to twenty eighteen according to CNN I one dairy. Then another collapsed under the weight of competition from plant based drinks soy almond, coconut, banana, Oat flax all. Those plants were out to get poor daisy the cow the dairy industry was so freaked out that it launched a pilot lawsuits against makers of those plant based drinks trying to forbid them from using the very word milk. You can't squeeze milk out of another grain they said but for the moment, at least dairy farmers are experiencing a bit of relief with. So many of us eating more meals at home, we're guzzling the white stuff again, it's long been true that milk drinkers tend to drink milk. Not at restaurants. So lockdowns have in fact, helped the dairy business cow's milk sales rose about twelve percent over last year for the twenty weeks ending. July eighteenth CNN reported your kid and mind mindlessly grabbing a swig from the carton added up to four and a half billion dollars in sales this spring, and that has spurred the dairy industry to revive an iconic ad campaign. Remember got milk. Vast company called it one of the most famous ad campaigns in history that campaign was launched in Nineteen ninety-three, its message, whatever you do don't run out of milk over time three hundred celebrities including Britney Spears Dennis Rodman Bill Clinton, and the simpsons all appeared sporting those milk mustaches. The ads became enormously popular by the end of the campaigns run in two thousand, fourteen, ninety percent of all adults were familiar with got milk to Huffington Post Contributor Gene Delvecchio but there was one a little problem. The ads didn't actually work over that same time milk sales declined steadily soda consumption bubbled over guess what those Soda Lovers used to drink you got it delvecchio a former AD industry executive argues the got milk ads were like bringing peace shooters to a gunfight, the gunfight being Pepsi and Coke Monster Marketing Budgets while the to soda makers battled each other milk lost but the dairy industry apparently believes their campaign was effective embracing Estonia the industry's marketing arm milk. PAP has revived the got milk campaign today's ads bear little resemblance to the Owens though. Sure there's still some celebrities Olympic gold medal swimmer Katie decades, viral tiktok video showing her perfectly balanced a glass of milk on her head while swimming a lap. That's certainly a turned heads but the bulk of today's campaign features, regular folks and a ton of user generated content milk drinkers were urged to do silly things with milk and boy did they respond people open gallons of milk with their toes jumped into kiddie pools filled with milk and cereal according to the trade paper? Agra. News will this generation's got milk ads do anything to keep the cow's milk train going if the wildly popular ad campaign of your didn't work well. Be Hard pressed to say that this one is a better peashooter. The dairy industry itself is making predictions. They say they're simply celebrating the quarantine induced sales boost. What is true however is that the competition from those plant based rivals is only getting. Over the same twenty weeks that saw a twelve percent rise in dairy milk sales oat milk sales went through the roof up two, hundred, fifty percent. Of course, oat milk sales are still tiny compared to cow's milk. They totalled only one, hundred, thirty, five, million dollars, but other signs point to the continued aggressive challenge from those gentle plant based alternatives. Oatley the. Leading oat milk maker recently attracted two hundred million dollars in investment funding from blackstone and Oprah it hopes to go public next year according to Forbes, and on Monday good Karma, a maker of flax milk bought itself back from bankrupt dean. Foods investors are Thurston lapping up all of these cream alternatives and no matter how beloved the Got Milk Gad's once were. All this competition puts a whole lot of pressure on twenty twenties version of the same campaign.

Tesla Rivals are Moving Into High Gear -- and Going Public

"From wondering I'm Elaine Appleton grant and this is business words daily on this Wednesday August Nineteenth David Brown's on vacation. Tesla has long had an image of being in both good and less good ways without comparison. CEO? Elon Musk stands out for his big vision and sometimes quirky behavior, and until now anyway, Tesla's all electric vehicles have stood head and shoulders above the competition coming from traditional automakers. Competition what competition I can almost imagine musk saying. Oh, but there is plenty coming tesla shares soared two, hundred, fifty percent this year. The company is now the most valuable automaker in the world according to. CNN. That's because Tesla which went public ten years ago is finally profitable. Tesla had a record twenty nineteen in posted its first annual profit last year despite the pandemic it's been profitable this year as well and that kind of performance and the stock market's reward for it is convincing more and more electric vehicle makers to go public and to try to woo customers away from Tesla last week, Ohio Electric Startup, Lordstown Motors Corporation, or L. M. C. said, it plans to go public by the end of the year. It's ticker symbol ride. If the deal goes through, the company will be valued at close to one point five, billion dollars. So who is Lordstown Motors to burst on the scene this way? L. LLC is a spinoff of another electric truckmaker called Workhorse. GROUP LORDS DOWN CEO Steve Burns is the former CEO of workhorse with LLC Burns resurrecting a project that we're course didn't have the money to do the company plans to release an all electric full-size pickup truck the Lordstown endurance in the second half of twenty twenty one that's according to journalist Alan. Adler, writing for trade publication freight waves. The truck will have a range of about two hundred fifty miles on a charge the same as Tesla's sci-fi looking cyber truck it'll toes seventy five hundred pounds alums. He says again, just like the chuck, the endurance will start at fifty two thousand dollars a good deal more than the cyber forty thousand dollar base price. But UNLIKE TESLA LLC plans to sell the endurance to commercial customers buying fleets of trucks since revealing the prototype on June twenty-fifth Ellen Mc says it's received more than twenty seven, thousand pre orders. That's one point four, billion dollars worth of trucks. NCO Burns says its first years worth of trucks are now sold out. That is if it can raise the money, it needs to actually make them l.. AMC. Bought the Lordstown Ohio GM plant that shutdown last year when GM killed the last Chevy Cruz that six million square foot plant needs retooling, which is costly MC plans to raise about six hundred and seventy five million dollars through its IPO. That boatload of cash could help it come through on its boast to be first to market among a group of EV pickup truck competitors in addition to Tesla that group includes Ford GM Nikola and Arabian a company backed by Ford and Amazon. So, here's the obvious L.. He doesn't yet have a product just a prototype if you're wondering how the young startup can go public without a product you should be. L. EMC is one of a handful of electric vehicle makers employing what's called a reverse merger that means the company that plans to make a product like LLC hooks up with the so-called blank check business. It's also called a special purpose acquisition company. SPAC. Is doing the reverse merger with a blank check company called Diamond Peak Holdings. Diamond peak is already publicly traded that means when the merger occurs. LLC. MC becomes public sort of like easing into a coat someone else has been wearing. This back door IPO method is easier for companies to do. They don't have to produce expensive roadshow's. Also, avoid a great deal of financial scrutiny by the SEC. One of the most famous reverse murders was Richard Branson's space company Virgin Galactic, Holdings and Fantasy Sports Company draftkings went public in a three billion dollar reverse merger. Last year according to the A. Times. The number of reverse mergers hit a record high last year. That's because the IPO market was volatile and high profile IPO's like Uber Fared. Poorly. It ain't cheap to build a new car company but Tesla's successes inspiring other entrepreneurs to try and they need oodles of money that helps to explain why another electric truckmaker nickel motors used a reverse merger to go public in June and vehicle-maker. FISKER has a reverse merger in the works. The is green truckmakers may see these back door IPO's as the speediest way to raise the cash needed to fight he'll in musk and rapidly launched their new products. Tesla's promising to deliver the cyber took by late twenty, twenty one which means that the deadline to beat yes. It may be tough to knock Tesla on it's pedestal, but LLC and a raft arrivals are sure going to try.

California went from bending the curve to a major coronavirus surge. What happened?

"New Tonight for the fourth time in one week. Los Angeles County is breaking its own record for the number of people that are in the hospital with corona virus, which also means. California is inching closer to surpassing. New, York's record of having the most cases in the country. What went so wrong in California Sarah Gardner is out front. When you're sleeping on your belly. The staff at this California. Hospital is nearing exhaustion every minute I think about covid nineteen, a video diary from inside Eisenhower, health, Rancho Mirage nurse Catherine Davis says she's used to seeing one death a year in her unit. With seven hundred Cova patients treated here so far she's now seeing forty deaths. We would ensure that a patient did not die alone. So you know, we would take turns spending time with them and holding their hand and talking to them, doctors knew they had the beds to treat the surge, but not the staff when we heard that the next wave of relief might come in and two weeks three weeks four weeks. You know that's when things become a little bit desperate. They asked the federal government for help, and it arrived an airforce medical team of about twenty help shoulder the unending load. The stress here repeated all over California. So how did we get here? The state was the first to announce a stay at home order that was march nineteenth. This is a moment we need to make tough decisions. Seven weeks later, the governor reopened the state on. On May ain't. You have bent the curve, but that wasn't to be by early June. The seven day average for new daily coronavirus cases was more than twenty, six hundred by July, Eleventh at more than ninety, four, hundred, more than two hundred fifty percent, increase and rewarding. You are renowned epidemiologist. What went wrong? In California we opened up too soon. We didn't have the virus totally under control, experts agree. Residents and local governments got complacent. Back on the field now case in point, three suburban counties near La all lifted their mask requirements under heavy pressure from angry residents. None of this is based on science, but rather an affair is political agenda to silence, the people and Strip freedoms from hardworking Americans now. hard-working Americans. All three counties are seeing Cova D- Surge And Hospital? Beds are filling out and that's frightening 'cause. Where do we go from? There are patients telling you healthy might have gotten it. Yes, well, some of them are partners. Some of them have. Gone Out and gone to parties, no masks but Los Angeles County did and still does have strict mask, requirements, tickets, or even being issued. If you don't comply and yet, it's still the epicenter of the California surge. How much worse does it have to get in Los Angeles? Before you feel compelled to issue another stay at home order well I think we're on the brink of that. People are not following the rules or not wearing masks or not social distancing among them. California's forty and under who make up more than half of the state's new cases. Also hard hit the Latino community which makes up a third of the state's population, but more than half of Cova infections. Sometimes it's mom and dad's work experience that has brought them into contact with it, and then it goes through the whole family. Experts say fixing all this comes only one way you have to just shut down for now. I think they'd is our only way out. And that is really depressing for almost anyone everyone worrying about the economy coming back, but as a couple of people told us you have to have a healthy society to have a healthy economy and one of the big issues is testing used to take a couple of days now you can take up to a week just to get an appointment when you get your results back as a whole different problem

"Judge and ask them to let us let me against a bank account for two garnishing their wages so you know and we are required by law by law required if the taxpayers an economic hardship meaning they cannot pay their basically thing expenses we must release that levy and we've identified all sorts of processes including allowable living expenses to identify what the level is based on family size were taxpayer cannot afford to pay their basically being expenses so I've just described a formula we have all the data on the income may not be you know we may not know cash income but we've got a lot of data about income we know family size and we know that the threshold for economic hardship that's a formula that's an algorithm my office is created an algorithm that we applied toward the taxpayers against the taxpayers who had entered into and streamlined installment agreements by the automated collection system and we found that forty percent of the taxpayers forty percent of the taxpayers who entered into streamlined installment agreements which is about seventy eight percent of our strong agreement forty percent of them had incomes below their allowable living expenses meaning they could not afford to pay the taxes that they work the the debts that they were paying and in fact it's proven that we saw that thirty nine percent of those forty percent actually defaulted on their installment agreement so we set him up to fail now why we are spending our valuable resources dealing with those folks when we could be looking at folks who do have the ability to pay we're basically getting the low hanging fruit into making payments that by law they should not be paying and we're not using your data in order to identify those taxpayers put an indicator on their account so when they call us you know we can say to them well let's spend some time talking about your finances so we can find out whether they cannot afford to pay really that's all I'm asking we could also use that to screen them out of the private debt collection program which also has forty percent of its installment agreements the taxpayers are at or below their allowable living expenses and so that's on my list we've already shown that it can be done we just I just published a blog blog this week that said okay the irises her come back to the commissioner come back and said was their federal poverty level that could maybe screen these people out and we've just published the data shows that two hundred fifty percent federal poverty level is a pretty good measure so what I'm looking at from the iris for the future is that they not only use data to nab the bad actors they also use data to assist the taxpayers who may even be making mistakes but are trying to comply and if you don't do that then you lose trust of all.

"Trump supporters called the report, full vindication. And it's apparently been good for Trump's twenty twenty reelection campaign. According to the campaigns, Michael glassdoor, quote, the release of the full report directly led to the campaign raising more than one million dollars relatives who are recent daily average. The Muller news drove a two hundred fifty percent increase in fundraising from the grass roots donors. Wow. You know, sometimes you you listen to these numbers, and you realize that there is a tremendous amount of support that you would never really know about if you just watch television. And then I'm including the Fox News network to their there's this desire this need on the part of all of the media, including conservative media. They think that somehow their credibility is tied to their ability to take a shot that lands on Donald Trump's chin. And I don't know when you listen to numbers like that you realize that this grassroots support that propelled Donald Trump into the presidency is a strong as it ever was it might actually be even stronger than it was in two thousand sixteen. I know that's hard for some people to wrap their minds around. But it's not hard for me. Because one of the things that I have become extremely aware of is the shift in some of the minority communities, and you definitely not hearing about that on television. As a matter of fact, they don't even want acknowledge that it's happening, but it is and it's happening in communities. We one never expected to happen. For instance, the African American community and the proof that it's happening. There is when you listen to some people talk about the inner city programs. You have. A democratic mayor in. Where is he now may think I saw this this morning, and he's got Vicksburg? That's right. He is in Vicksburg, Mississippi, a democrat mayor black American they they were the city that was given the first opportunities on a city where sixty eight percent of the population is black and even though the mayors democrat he does not hesitate to share the stage with President Trump or to tout the success of the new program. Look, President Obama was the first black Pesident, and he paid a lot of lip service to helping the community but not much to show for it. Let's face it on the other hand, President Trump has been hard at work on policy initiatives, whether it's criminal Justice reform, or it's these economic initiatives like the opportunities own program, which basically Spurs economic development in struggling communities by providing tax benefits to investors. Now, it's working and when something works the people who live in that city. Sixty eight percent of whom are black. They hit. The the mayor says the mayor of the city and a former legislator for twenty five years. I've never seen any piece of legislation that allows more collaboration between federal state and local governments. Huge and just to tell you what we were able to do the mayor said in Vicksburg, we have created fifty four percent of our new jobs and the new jobs in the state of Mississippi were created in Vicksburg, Mississippi because of the economic opportunity we share here today. That has a big impact on people's lives. And trust me it helps the president..

"Spend eight hundred dollars on a pair of shoes. And I looked at the sort of director consumer movement that was really happening and the way that even my existing customers were shopping so women that were, you know, wearing a Chanel handbag and Ranil kuechly pants and they had an ever leaned down on. And I thought well, this is, you know, this is a very high end customer, and she's even getting on board with this sort of direct to consumer movement and moment, and you know, in my heart of hearts, I don't believe that you should pay that kind of an extra markup. So it was just such an opportunity to really broaden our market to offer the best possible thing. To my customers, and and to really to grow. So at the point you did that though you already had a fairly established online business. Fairly established. But it's grown about two hundred fifty percent in the last year since we moved to direct to consumer. So I mean, it seemed at the time I thought it was wonderful business. But now, we're just things are growing so quickly. And we've had you know, insane. Wait lists in the last year. I think we've had at times almost thirty thousand people on weightless for shoes. So is most of caused by the celebrities that are being seen in these some of it sometimes certainly celebrity helps and driving it. But I think, you know, it's just the demand has has increased so much, and you know, we intimidated increased demand. But so you've had it at a particular given time thirty thousand people waiting for Shula shoes. That's amazing. Yeah. I mean, that's unbelievable. Yeah. But they're still coming back because obviously you got the shoes exactly. And time talking everything which is exciting, but it took a little while as well the scale production. But now we're in great position to to repeat buyers shoes are very durable. So are people needing a second pair? Absolutely. So women love shoes. Women can't just have one pair. If they're comfortable. We see customers typically purchase around four times a year. And that's what we've seen in this this first year. So of our direct consumer movement. So can I ask you about? Cindy, Cindy Crawford. How did that? She was your first investor or how she was one of the first in the direct to consumer move. Okay. So she had been a customer of the brand, and I had sort of actively pursued her when we were making this switch. I wanted to tell her about what we were doing since she'd been she was one of the celebrities that had been more engaged with the brand. And that I had sort of direct contact with you not through an assistant or anything like that. So I sort of told her about what we were doing. And I said I'd love to, you know, get you involved in marketing, especially in talking about the switch to direct to consumers, and she had her meaningful beauty, which is a direct consumer beauty brand. And she said, well, you know, are you looking for investors, and that's great. That's great. So I don't know if you want to answer this. But then did you have have you? Did you take on more investors after that? We did we took on some investors after after the switch to direct you order size. Yes. Exactly. Yeah. That's it's a lot of shoes to buy but Cindy's been a fantastic partner. And is she has an incredible business sense and savvy, and of course, she has an incredible style and taste as well.

"And it's kind of interesting because a lot of ways it was like the tech bubble in the dot com era, where you had all this money build out the infrastructure in the fiber optic cables. And people say like in a lot of ways that bubble was kind of a good thing because it laid the groundwork for the internet, even a lot of people lost oughta money, that's kind of the same thing happened in England with the railroads where they there. Huge speculation it they bar way too much money, and they built on the road infrastructure, and even though people lost their shirts on their investments. It actually did a good thing because it built out this transportation network. The more. You know, you know, let's move on. So this is the kind of an exit. Nice piece here is met favor. Talked about valuations in the chart from visual capitalist. Always kind of makes me laugh when people go back to eighteen seventy with the Schiller data for for the Cape. Like, there's no way you can make an apples to apples comparison with the way the sector composition of the market was back. Then with the way that it is now in I'm not saying mobster and do that here. But that's kind of something people do, but anyway, med shows it back to nineteen eighty and he says that the the valuation gap between foreign and US stocks is the whitest. It's been in forty years while I would I would say to med now show it without Japan. That is the one prior peak where you saw the US lagging badly was in the eighties. When Japan was it looks like more than two times as much as US in terms of capable will share this one in the show notes, but there is so much gray here. And I think that generally you, and I would agree. That the home country buys is probably not going to help most investors across the globe. How could it and we do think that valuations are very important? So I see both sides Joshua's. Good points. Josh's made the case that we are special and based on the dynamics of our economy and the stability of the political system, which sounds hilarious right now. But the strength of the dollar and the innovation of the economy that we do deserve a premium, but the other side of that is that well that premium has been reflected in stock prices. So US stocks are up what two hundred fifty percent less ten years. Foreign stocks are up a fraction of that. Right. And even if let's say over the long term, the US does deserve a valuation premium that doesn't mean it's the same thing every year, and that meter version can't kick in and make it fluctuate wildly from year to year in. I think like these kind of arguments. This is the kind of thing where sure you could look back over the last hundred years and say. The US deserve a premium because of with things really happened throughout the world in the way that US structured we deserve a premium because a reality TV star became president. What a great country. Yes. But the thing is d- wanna make that same argument going forward that the US from here still deserves a premium. No, I do not. I do not think we're gonna have another reality TV star in the office. Okay. Does how Howard Schultz doesn't count as he's your stay? Oh my God. He got roasted pun intended, so badly last night.

"First of all you have to log onto SSH dot gov to get your award letter because they don't send those in the mail anymore. Right. We don't get the paper statements in the mail anymore from social security, they stopped doing that. So you got to set up an account at S S, A dot gov. If you're not familiar with that. But if you bring in your award letter, what we can do is we can implement the information into our system in a printout of twenty one page report regarding social security, if you and your husband, husband and wife, if it's a single it doesn't matter it's gonna give you different strategies in options to read about so that you can make a decision on when to elect your social security now, let's talk about social security for a minute here early retirement is sixty two years of age. Right. So that's that's the first opportunity. We have to elect our social security and then full retirement age is sixty six right, right? Or for those born after nineteen six right, exactly. Sixty seven yet today. And then seventy years of age is what we would call maximizing social security. So they say, but what's funny is it? I can't I have no rhyme or reason for why this is, but I even called the social security administration and ask them, and and stop by with my social security handle is her and asked him why this is but a gentleman told me he wanted to maximize the social security as seventy years of age, you said I'm going to take it on my seventieth birthday. So well, let me just run this. So we can look at the strategies, and it actually advised him to take it at sixty nine eleven months in twelve days to maximize his social security, and I I didn't know the answer to why that was right. I really didn't. And I still don't know the answer to that is because I can't get anybody to respond, but I told him this when you're supposed to take your social security, according to our analyzer, and I believe in the analyzer, and so security had agreed with a agreed with what I had. Presented to them. But what I'm getting at here is this you have to really focus on win is the time excuse me to take the social security. It's not, you know, hey, I'm going to maximize it I'm going to defer to seventy well you to think about all the years that you're not taking social security. So if you took it early retirement, sixty two. And you're taking I'm sorry. If you don't take any ticket at seventy you look at the number of what it was what it could have been at sixty two that's eight years of that you could have an earning income and also potentially investing that money and making money on that money as well. Right. So I mean, I've over these past eight nine years of that we've had with this bullish market. If you would have elected to take social security invested that money because you didn't need it the returns. I mean, we've had over two hundred fifty percent return over the past nine years, right? You would have made a lot of money on that social security. On the flip side, if you don't feel like the market's gonna perform your social security does roll up on a compounding per at at seven percent every year, you defer it. So there's a lot of things that you have to look at if you're currently not taking social security because it's a huge part of your retirement. It's a huge part of your retirement. So if this is something that interest, you want us to run a social security analyzer for you all you have to do is call us up eight five five three one eight eight three eight seven we're gonna do this for the next. I think I think victorious ever gonna do this for the next ten callers that call in. We're going to give them the social security analyzer at no cost, no obligation. Come in you bring your award letters will run the social security analyzer for you. We'll go through it with you. Like, I said, it's a twenty one page document. And we'll we'll see what's best for you. The other thing you got to think about with social security is life expectancy. You know, my father. He doesn't think that he's the kind of guy. You know, he's a diabetic, right? He's type one diabetic. And he doesn't think he's gonna make eighty five years of age. I don't I don't believe that. I think he's got nine lives. Okay. I think my dad's gonna be kicking it still ninety five. I hope so. Yeah. Because he looks like he's about forty five at seventy two. So we'll see what happens. We like we said we can't predict the future, but he elected to take his social security right away. Because he he doesn't think his life expectancy is going to be very long his that's something you really have to take into consideration. Because if you defer social security to age seventy in order to catch up for all those years you lost her not taken at age, sixty two. It'll take you to about age eighty two to rekindle the money that you didn't take between sixty to an age seventy. It's about eighty two years of age before you actually catch up to the money that you didn't receive during that period of time. And then after that, obviously after eighty eighty one eighty two. You know, you're you're you're really in the in the green, you know, making it was it was a good decision. But if you pass away at seventy five and you liked it at seventy well, no you lost a lot of money in social security. Right. So this is something you just really have to make sure you making a good decision on. It's not a spontaneous decision to elect social security. It's not you don't just say. Let's just turn it on. It took thirty forty fifty years of work, however, long you worked to build up this model money you need to make an educated decision on when you're going to take it..

They also took nineteen standby trips the morning of day two and saw delays of between ten and thirty minutes washed. Dave sour says, they're ahead on some pieces of the construction to connect highway ninety nine to the tunnel and on time with others, but don't plan on driving the tunnel early. We can build all that embankment. We can build all those walls and all that. But at the end of the day, we pour a roadway on top of that. And then that has to cure, and then that has to be striped. So there's certain things that just takes time. And while we might be a little bit ahead on an individual item or two doesn't necessarily mean that we're projecting to finish the overall piece of work early. The message from all the transportation agencies is please keep doing what you're doing. Because traffic will.

"So today, we deliver the vast majority of WalMart's groceries in about five hundred stores seventy markets in the US. So lots happened to talking about the delivering business in general. I mean, there's been there's million competitors in this in this space. When you start it in two thousand thirteen there were they were, you know, they're talking Google was sort of monitoring around Amazon, obviously and others. So talk about your principal competitor is right now in this space because I think people are confused because there's Uber's involved reads and things like that. Yes. So there there's always been a lot of players. I mean, I mean food is a big category. And I think the misunderstood thing about food is that it's actually largely still undelivered. Right. When meaning what does that? Well, so so food the restaurant business we'll see about eight hundred billion dollars in sales in twenty seventeen two thousand eighteen and about five percent of that is delivered. But if you actually look in certain segments like pizza, we all know pizzas, deliver half of pizza sales actually are delivered but non pizza it's a single digit percentage number. So we're still in the super super early innings. And I think that's one of the things that's not well interested. It's it's going to be. It's going to be the largest industry out there because we do it twenty times a week. We eat twenty times at least a week, right? Right. And so that that's really, you know, still the the state of affairs of for the market, but in terms of the big players. I mean, I think you're seeing a couple of players rise to the top of where we've been the fastest growing since I mean for the past year year and a half groin now over two hundred fifty percent year on year. So talk about the competitors China name that I now you can do. Yeah. I'll let you. This is. So I I think what you see is that there have been companies that started in the past and most of these companies whether the crop hubs of the world were really their lead generation companies didn't do the deliveries themselves the result. Most of the market was actually not served so outside of New York City. Nobody did delivery that. That's the biggest thing. And so what door ashes done is really allowed any one of the two hundred fifty thousand restaurants that we serve today to offer that and so that is a big part of why we're the number one. Chris thank competitors. To talk about them individually. Google. Yeah. Google's not really in the in the in the restaurant space at this at this point. They did shopping express while seems to be sort of. You're all going to converge on delivering everything one hundred percent. Our vision is definitely last mile logistic. So we started with started with restaurant food delivery. We now do grocery with WalMart, and and you'll see more expansion in the years to come and in that area the same. It's Amazon is the other competitor. Or how do you look at that, you know, because we are a less mile logistics platform and power say WalMart's deliveries Amazon is a potential future ally, or their potential competitor. They there is a service called Amazon restaurants. It's very very small today. Sub five percent market share. So it doesn't seem to be a major initiative for them. But I hope to see them as a as a as an ally in the future because we're connecting all local businesses to all local consumers, that's the vision that Tony created and want to be able to deliver anything to anyone. In in real time. Right. So talking about that. I mean because I just I've been doing a lot of this using a lot of delivery services lately. Most Amazon actually prime now and various things like do to testing the ubereats and things like that talking about how it's how it's go. I'm trying to get people understand what how the business is moving because there's lots of different parts and every but eventually everyone's going to converge on the same idea of whatever you want whenever you want. However you want. Yes. I think it's important to start with like, you know, one of the earliest pioneers in the space, which was FedEx, no back in nineteen seventy two and actually many of the models that you talked about whether it's, you know, the Amazon's or other types of retailers really still are predicated on them model, which is we go door to door to door and we make drop offs..
