Dog Threads Designer Chases Coordinated Outfits

"My name is gina. Davis i am the co founder and ceo a dog threads. We are based in minneapolis minnesota. We were last featured on episode seven hundred and We design dot clothing in matching outfits or bloom pups. My husband and i started it as a side. Hustle can have just a passion project for our cup comments in two thousand fourteen. We couldn't find any clothing that we thought matched human like personality. We wanted him to dress. More human like like scotts wardrobe and i was designing women's clothing at the time so we decided to just create a couple designs for him ourselves and people would stop us everywhere we went and ask where we got them and long story short. We decided to start. You know just the side business doing it on Layton weekends together and it was right when instagram started to take off and apparently we weren't the only ones looking for quality threads for their dogs so People started asking for it. We couldn't keep it in stock and In two thousand seventeen. I decided to leave my full time job. To focus on the business. We also launched matching outfits for men women and kids around that time which has done incredibly wellness. Actually the the majority of our business at this point last time we were on the show at believe we were doing around two hundred fifty thousand dollars. In sales we are continuing to grow our direct to consumer market. We also partner with different wholesale accounts retailers but our main focus is definitely d to see sense. Our episode with you guys. We actually were on shark tank season. Eleven about a year ago and we've almost doubled our sales Since being on the podcast with you guys so just really focusing on growing the business and Scaling dot fully but also As quickly slow. One chip i have seen since the beginning of working apparel industry. Over fifteen years ago is a lot of people make the mistake when they want to start an apparel business specifically. They tend to copy what they see as popular. Maybe they change it slightly but they see growth in an area and so a can of knockoff. A popular design and that almost never works out successfully might gain some traction. But you're not gonna gain a really dedicated customer. I don't believe in create a brand story that you need to to be successful in an industry like ours where you can't patent apparel design So i think the most important thing is coming up with a design that is unique and authentic to you in a real reason of why you're creating it to fill gap in the market and then staying true to your brand and gray density not just copying. What you see is popular out there. Which is tough to do. Because know there's so much inspiration out there and there's so many credible companies that i think everyone looks around. They're like tempted to go a different direction. Just when they see something that's shiny new awesome But i think just trying to always go back to yourself said his authentic to you and your company and staying true to that is stepping. What's most important in our industry. Thank you so much not really appreciate those updates and it was great for me to be reminded of dog threads. I remember working on that episode long ago and thinking. This is the coolest thing as you heard. They were doing something like two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year when we first had them on the show and now they've doubled it Lots of other improvements as well so it just a couple of comments here. Gina was talking about how a lot of times in the fashion world people just kind of do knockoffs and they look at something. they're like. Oh that's cool and they make something a little bit like that and as you just heard from her like she's like i don't think you can create a brand story which is what you need to be successful in. An industry like the fashion industry right. So a brand story is this narrative customer loyalty that trust that people kind of give overtime or you could say a brand builds up over time. Depending on which perspective you're looking at and that is the real value in a business like doctrines which by the way. Gina pointed out to a separately. The pet industry is pretty much recession. Proof like during the pandemic animal. Adoptions have gone way up already had pets have been spending a lot more time with them so dog threads is well positioned

Think Twice Before You Eat That Halloween Candy

"The urban legend of Razor Blades in your Halloween candy or poison hidden behind the sweet taste of a snickers bar has been around for decades to this day. Parents are still worn to inspect all candy give into their children to make sure that it's safe for consumption quoted from a mental floss article written by Ethan treks quote it's easy to see how urban legends have taken hold because they're so terrifying after all parents Ben Three hundred, sixty, four days of every year telling their kids not to take candy from strangers precisely because of might be poisoned. Then, give the thumbs up to taking snacks from every house in the neighborhood on Halloween, and that's so true and it also calls to mind the whole idea of like when we re under it, we were told not to talk to strangers online and not to get in cars with strangers, and now we literally use the Internet to summon strangers to get in their cars yet. So. Weird. It's crazy. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five Joel Best, who's a professor of sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware publishing article that reviewed reports and press coverage of candy tampering in the United States between nineteen, Fifty, eight to nineteen eighty-four during the search he found a report as early as nineteen fifty nine where children were falling ill after a California dentist named. William. Shine had distributed four hundred fifty candies laced with laxatives. Two Children Jesus thirty of these children were actually affected by candy tampering and he was later charged with outrage of public decency and quote unlawful dispensing of drugs for a dentist. A dentist, a nine, hundred, sixty, four in New York a forty, seven year. Old Woman named. Helen feel was. Annoyed by the Halloween custom of handing out candy to children especially to children who she felt deserve to be given free candy for she handed out bags of treats including ant poison and dog biscuits while when she was confronted about her actions she said, she was doing it as a joke and only gave the items kid she felt were too old to be trick or treating. Is later reported that she was admitted to the State Hospital for mental observation. Good. God right. You don't know what their issues and why they're treating, and even if they don't have an issue like who fucking cares don't be so stingy. Yeah. Like would you want them taking part in egging in toilet paper toilet paper people's houses or would you like them going door to door and get some candy? Just let them go home with bags of candy and then do whatever they're going to do at the house. They're not gonNA come back at midnight to your house. They've if you give him dog biscuits. Yeah. It's like you just set yourself up for some mischief right in one thousand, nine, hundred, Sixty, eight, Toronto police had discovered razor blades and noodles and Halloween apples. The footage found in the CBC Archives Showed Police Displaying Candy that was supposedly poisoned in nineteen seventy, five year old boy named Kevin Dotson from Detroit died after supposedly eating heroin laced candy diseases. After news media outlets had a field day with telling all parents to dispose of their children's hard earned cash flowing treats. It was later discovered that the parents of the child were trying to hide the true events led to his death apparently the uncle of the boy. had a heroin stash in his home and the little boy had gotten into it and ingested a capsule filled with heroin. The parents sprinkled heroin on the boys Halloween candy after he had died as a cover up to protect the boy's uncle God. But that also kind of reminds me of the the thing that goes around of Lake don't watch out people are putting edibles in your candidate and like no nobody's giving you hundreds of dollars of drug senior kids. In two thousand and Minnesota a forty nine year old man named James Joseph Smith was charged with felony for tampering with candy after a fourteen year old boy was pricked with a needle after biting into a candy bar. Lou. He apparently had put needles into snickers bars and handed them out on Halloween. Night. He was charged with one count of adultery in substance with the intent to cause harm illness or death new four other boys were found to have the needle lace snicker Bar, but the only one boy was harmed. In Two thousand sixteen in Nova Scotia a twelve year old boy was injured when he reached into his candy bag and was cut by a razor blade poking out of a kick cap arc. In two thousand, seventeen multiple reports come out of Ontario Canada where eleven year old girl underwent surgery at U. ship it into recess peanut Butter Cup containing a metal object although it was unclear if this was a result of candy tampering or a manufacturing incident. And other eleven year old boy was also reported to have received a Tutsi roll containing melatonin pill before. Tone of all things so. Yes. So harmless but just go to sleep in two thousand, nineteen in Connecticut thirty seven year old Jason Racks was arrested and held on a two hundred fifty thousand dollar bond after the parents of at least two trick or treaters found razors in their children's candy bags. He was charged with risk of injury to a minor reckless endangerment and interfering with police officer apparently did not go quietly when arrested and he also stated that the razor blades were accidentally spilled into the Cannibal for boxer razors who just happened to have next to it. Yes. Yep Yeah I totally believer like you do a later unrelated incident involved someone handing out THC laced gummy candies in their Halloween trick or treaters. Each of the bags contained colorful gummy cubes each packed with ten milligrams of THC. It was stated that it was unknown if this was intentional or from might have been an unintentional oversight by the person handing out the treats but the packaging was obvious enough that it shouldn't be consumed by children Marcos is probably high end didn't notice it air probably high and just in the bag knows because there's pictures of it and that looks like little gummy little gummy bear bags. Yeah. So again, the joke comes up though that nobody's going to willingly hand over yet. They're edibles. Yeah. At the conclusion of Joel Best Research. So get it only went from nine, hundred, fifty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, and a lot of these cases. I, told you about were in the two thousands So, this was his conclusion with his research at the conclusion of Joel Best Research into candy tampering incidents. He concluded that the vast majority of reported about seventy five percent who were either hoaxes conducted by children or their parents or didn't result in serious injury interesting. He also stated that contemporary legends are ways that society expresses anxiety and urban legends like Halloween Sadism could've stemmed from societal grievances like nineteen, eighty, two with the cyanide laced tylenol incident in. CHICAGO? The September eleventh terrorist attacks and subsequent Anthrax scare and of course now with Yeah. which actually plays into what you were saying. Devil's night about the depression and the war and how people just kind of like did what they did on Devil's night as a reprieve or as Cathartic. Occurrence. Yeah. So yeah, and that a lot of these urban legends Kinda just stemmed from people just having so much anxiety about the world in the world's problems. Yeah. Yeah. He has stated quote is it possible that someone maliciously passes out treats with the intent of harming children at random of course but this raises the question why they're usually aren't multiple reports from the same area effectively saying that the urban legend is just that nothing more than a hoax or scary story to tell her on time we're anxieties already

Rose McGowan Claims Alyssa Milano Made the Charmed Set Toxic AF

"There's is daily top. We have so many feuds to talk about today starting with rose McGowan claim that a listen the Llano. made the charm set toxic A. Okay this whole thing started as a political view, but then it got very personal rose accused of throwing fits in front of the crew on the set of charmed rose even says she cried every ten shows renewed because a listen made the set. So toxic in a statement to news listen. Milano said hurt people hurt people commenting any further doesn't align with my wellness plan we have not yet heard back from rose or or Warner, brothers, which produced charm. So a lot to unpack here. Again, it started off very political was a Democrat argument but then rose went there why he thinks she went there to bring charm to behavior. Look, hold. One hundred percent and if we're fighting and I'm holding a grudge against somebody I'm pulling out every receipt I don't care it. One Thousand Nine, hundred, ninety, nine, hundred. This is an audit. We're going to have this fight whether you like it or not. I guess that's true and also she's trying to discredit a list right? That's her way of saying like you shouldn't. You can listen to. Elissa because she's not as relatable as you think because listen to this she may two hundred thousand dollars a week on charm and was still throwing right she didn't get paid enough. It's like a way to discredit. I don't know. That is also. To your argument, sometimes, people will buy into that and be like absolutely. You know what? She's right rose you. If she's FELICIA's really as bad as you say that I'm listed work she says, but then other people can see right through that to say like obviously you have a grudge obviously, you don't like her you've made that very clear. You said it in an interview you do not like or. Do we really trust your opinion because it's obviously very biased. I just feel like this has become somewhat sticky with rose like we can just expect her to just go off and sort of sale of these things and quite frankly does anybody really care twenty years later if the listen. Milano through set like threw a fit onset of charms like I just don't think that's relevant to the conversation like none of us were there. None of us really really cared that much about how she behaved obviously, you want to be respectful to the crew and people that work really hard. To put on a production as we all know but we've all had bad days on this show I just feel like if in fifteen years, one of us were to be like well, she was impossible to deal with. It's like, okay. Then you should have said something then I feel like it's just so kind of in line with WHO rose is trying to be now and I'm not saying that she likes her and I'm not saying that she feels like she's credible or that she believes in anything she says. Every time someone says something that has nothing to do with you. That doesn't mean you need to go and jump in on it. And I, I hate to say this because I'm not away from everybody's experiences and I always say this you gotTa pick struggle and you've got to stick with that struggle and pick up a fight and fight as hard as you can. If you're fighting in the me too movement because it happened to you I totally get it. You're also writing because somebody was in a toxic work environment made something toxic fighting another break, and then what's next if something else comes up and you're fighting about that as well take you just take it away and makes it seem like you're only saying those things because. Of the week, right right and it's also like she made two, hundred, fifty, thousand dollars a week like made that much money. It was a hit show like I don't I also don't see how that's relevant. You know what I mean like you don't need to also bring up how much somebody made I. Don't think that that's her pleasure bill, but I will say. It rose McGowan felt leg she made. made the workplace toxic that are that's her feelings. That's her way of engaging and listened with tolerance to her. She don't have to do it over the air. She can do on the phone and just throw rose a my dad if I if you thought that way and I did that to you but I, don't think. Anymore. I don't think. I'm. Giving that apology I'm sorry I. Think we know a lot of different people not everybody has a good day I. Think People think just because you're on television or you're part of ensemble cast like your life is so easy. It's a lot of hard work that goes into this. So maybe she maybe she had a bad week or month or whatever. But there's a lot of people that we've experienced that can be toxic or disruptive or difficult to deal with. But that's just sort of this part of this dysfunctional family you keep that within yourself. You don't need to go and spread around and the and the truth is like the whole point rose trying to make was was again a political argument and so politics you know just keep arguing your facts and I think that's a fair argument to have. We argue politics stop in this country. So if you want to argue that with Eliza and you guys want to go back and forth about what who vote for do that. But I say again as you guys said, keep the history out of it because honestly just makes your arguments. Lesson weaker. We aren't just there's no right word. Thank point.

Apple. spotify and many many others I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple and effective. So get yourself anchor make voice her. All Right Patriots welcome again to another episode of the Midnight Patriots. Here from the Mile High Command Center the paper to PRICELESS DOT COM studios. Of today, we're going to be discussing the defunding police movement an idea that has picked up steam recently has become a rallying cry for far left protesters, rioters and seemingly anarchist groups. And we wanted to put some thoughts out there about this It seems to me that. We have a problem that requires more of a solution than just defunding. Systemic racism in my opinion is Beth. now, some people would with that. That said. If the narrative that we're going to be that is being shoved down our throats is to be believe that people of Color of. All Ages? Seated shining see in this country are being quote hunted by racist armed hate-mongers. Now that said if if that is in fact, the case. Why would you wanNA define the one organization that has the legal authority in the equipment. To protect you. That seems like a pretty fall said, it seems like a false dichotomy false comparison a false premise to start conversation PHOENIX. What are your thoughts? You know I'm GonNa take this a step further. The phone, the police movement. That is going to move a certain direction and stop. Once, they have figured out that. The one entity. That has sworn upon their own life to defend. There's like. Is Actually doing the job. We. Look at Minneapolis looks. legit. Atlanta's for the three top of my head. All of them have the same premise of less defunding. On the police, define the police. It went a step further into. Let's abolish the police install a private. Very. Force. That has absolutely no training. As No understanding of each individual law that a grand jury a whatever. If. Going to try and paying on. A criminal, a offender, a day walker anybody. Whatever you WANNA call it. So. My name might taking this step further into the question is what exactly we're trying to de-fund. I. Do numerous other people and no. One can give me an answer. It's always just defined defunding. Okay. So Great. Now we have a narratives being Ramdan, our throat. When all in all actuality is, hey, let's just bringing this back to the wild west little set like men up. Yeah I mean that's exactly the way I. See it is if you're going to defend the police and define them then yeah. What we're GONNA have is is you know the your your proverbial gun show earth sugar your gunfight at high noon in the middle of the street. That said cryptic. What are your thoughts on the matter? While I mean if you go I, find that going to be very odd if they try and go wild west because you know the same group behind the protests in the defunding, the police are the same ones who want to raise taxes and have all these limitations on ammo and guns and everything else that. You're going to be able to do that. We're going to have to throw stones at each other. Because, they're going to keep trying to get rid of. Guns and AMMO. I mean. It's maximilian face with white gloves and We'll go back to sword fight fifth. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because you know guns don't have near the range of a sword. A you know. That's an excellent point. I mean, they're they're trying to you know the presumptive destroyed comedy Slimy Joe. Biden. Has Basically announced that east common for the guns and they're going to basically raise taxes on firearms and ammunition to where they are completely unaffordable to anyone that's not in the billionaire boys You know that'd be that being said. How and how the me get to this point I mean you're you're talking about defunct not not obviously not us we think it's a crazy. Lunatics idea. What do they want to replace it with? I mean, let's let's be honest mental Minnesota in Minneapolis the same city council that saw fit to abolish the police department Arben has hired mercenaries for the private security force. Now. I see a far more disturbing outcome here boys, and that is that you know we have people acting with the fourth and backing of the law. And have no oath to uphold the constitution they're loyal only to money. That's a win win. If you're a leftist Marxist wants to light the constitution on fire because you have thugs running around at the under the color and force of law with automatic weapons. Now, if people think that trump is ending in in the army, what do you think's going to happen when we have quote unquote law enforcement that has no that are basically political puppets. Call that. KGB Custodio or exactly. Exactly. You'RE GONNA turn from. You know right now everybody's all up in. Arms with you know Military. Being, sent to Seattle and stuff like that like military forces or. Whatever that whatever they are that they're complaining about having martial law budget they wanNA with the funding this which are gonNA run into is you're actually GONNA run into mercenaries Latsis. You know either they're working for the buck or they think they're doing good by be judge jury and executioner for anybody they come across you know doing something they don't like because nobody can have their own opinion like and be civil about it. It's either you agree with me or you're wrong. that. You'RE GONNA run into all these fights and all these these vigilantes more or less that are going to sit there, and they're going to have guns and they're going to. Attack and kill innocent people just because they don't agree with what they think. About. Exactly. And like I said, that's a win win for Marxist politicians who have somehow seized power and now want want to run rampant over the constitutional whether we like it or not. I don't agree with with the with the with a lot of the things that bid the organization black lives matter stands for the organization to me is a self admitted Marxist. Violence approving organization now. I can't get kind the organization I. Don't think that any of US disagree the that black lives do matter just like every other. Form of life matters and regardless there everyone in this country is is is entitled to due process. I agree there's you know that there is race racism racism exists we we've seen. Plenty of it and I completely agree that that needs to go away. Of course, I'll ever. I do not believe that there is systematic I mean everybody. One way or another has the opportunity. And responsibility to themselves to. Get, the life that they want. Why agree that's? That's what that's what pursuit of happiness is all about. It's not the pursuit of joy quote unquote it was meant to the in that context as it context as written in the declaration of independence in the Constitution as pursuing your own circumstances. Working working to be what you want to be. I mean honestly I, you want to so defend the polices. The wrong way to go now do I think you know there are almost every state I can think of Over uses their budget. Or uses it incorrectly and find themselves up Shit Creek and some point now inside the funding the police. What should happen is that the police have you know? Better, I mean, honestly better training. Right I. Mean sometimes, you have the the. The police the Police Academy or whatever, and then you're thrown right out. You know on the beat with a superior or something like that, and obviously you being a fresh gumshoe sitting there dealing with somebody who's been on the force for a while you're learning from them. So you know if you get a bad cop as a superior, they're gonNA freak out because they don't know. To stop them, they don't know what to do. Because they're too worried about their job because there isn't training for that kind of thing. So I, I think that they need to revamp the training and they need to make every All officers that. that are serving should have to do. Something like a fresh training course or A. An up-to-date with all the changes that happen because we know societies like a computer, it's something it's out of date and six months. Air Every you know every year, every two years they have to get recertified training or something to that extent that just helps them. Update helps them mitigate the issues that they come across in a better way. You know take that. Then some of these God awful construction plans that they don't need to do like take Colorado's redoing stapleton. Oh God right spent millions of dollars. They're now you take that you invest in getting in creating another sub department doesn't the police but you get a another department that deals with you know Domestic domestic disturbances and. Family matters they can be counselors therapists whatever now they should have cops with them. You know in it is something that requires a police officer or Some sort of. Of Force or. Something that the police are trained for but I think some of these things like the people that do actually have mental health problems that. They you know they they don't have self-awareness were there at all they become crazy or something some of them would be able to. Diffuse the situation before a cop has to. Think that they're. Defending their life from somebody who's just acting rational because they just mentally aren't there. Well, that's the that's the real question is it is is that how how do we Do we define those situations because I'm going to get into a few things here after the after the break your boys and we will will continue on and I'm probably GonNa Piss a lot of the cops that I know off by some things going to get GonNa say so patriots stick with this year will be right back. Patriots is Paul sparking with a shameless plug for our New Year store. That's right. Midnight Patriots now offers t shirts, coffee mugs just about every other purchase where on your body the check it out go to shop midnight gatriways dot. com is way to both embrace your insomnia display your patriotism, and tell your governor to go himselves. So that Shop Dot Patriots Dot Com fifteen percent off right now for a limited time now back to the show. Okay. So as I mentioned in the previous segment, probably going to piss off a lot of cops that I know and I can't believe I'm actually going to say part of what I'm going to say. here in the Mile High Command. Center. We. Are. Unfortunately in the current being subjects of governor, jared police. Now I want to state unequivocally I. Have Zero problem that he is day openly that doesn't bother me a bit I don't care that he watches a different kind of porn than I do I don't care who he sleeps with. The guy's a timer. I gotta say I will criticize words do and I will give credit words do. Now, I'm not going to go over the whole article, but there was an article that recently appeared to the dead post about the some of the things that we were just talking about as a pretend to what I feel like our common sense police reforms. Now. I'm not GonNa Not GonNa read the article which but everybody can go look it up, Denver Post. dotcom can't believe I'm giving them pleader but. that. said. Cookie issues really stood up three sorry, three key issues really stood out for me in this legislation. Firstly that they're going to demilitarize a patrol police which I can't help but agree with okay If Your average ordinary citizen is not to not able to carry an AK47 or a ar fifteen around without being assaulted without being questioned by police than the police shouldn't have meter I don't have a problem with that and they said that the details are in the. Second. Is that. They have in fact. reinstituted or excuse me reduced. All immunity. Now, a lot of people may not know what qualified immunity is basically what allows cops to do what they do without any sort of fear of repercussion. So what? The Colorado Legislature has done is institute civilized ability for individual officers that are not accused but but found to be I don't WanNa say guilty but found responsible for the violation of an individual's civil civil liberties. And that liability is up to twenty five, thousand dollars per incident. Number three police are now held to the same standard that has gone on in corporate America in the private sector for. Decades You know we've all been through those work in the corporate world have all been through sexual harassment or bottomline harassment training okay. it's no stranger. It's that class that you have to. You have to guzzle coffee in and remain silent while world hold what sexual predators we are for. You know where we place our gaze to you know every other male male behavior that said as part of that training. What we're an abuse to is the idea of collusion what collusion means is that if you witnessed harassment or bullying or something that blatantly violates company policy or law. That if you don't come forward, report it and it's found out that you know about the new face, the same disciplinary measures as the offender. That includes that because liability Does your jobs. ETC etc.. and. This law requires that good cops deal with bad cops and report the. I don't see any of those three articles as a bad idea. Okay. Now, obviously being accused of something he's not the same as being guilty of it but. The at the very least, there is some sort of relief release mechanism or shooting relief mechanism there. To help solve the problem, a lot of people don't realize that the qualified immunity is not even really a statute. is a precedent put forward as. A. Means of fighting the drug war. which I won't get into that but that's complete total violation of the fourth minute. anyways. But it's part of a reduction of of constitutional liberties. that includes things like civil liability are shooting civil forfeiture asset forfeiture so Dumb any comments on that I mean I feel like those are good ways to actually start solving the problem as opposed to to complete quote defunding. are there issues with it certainly, but I think the mechanisms are in place to make it make closeable your thoughts. will allow me if I may. I'm going to step back, yours. You know maybe we can have social worker. With. Police escort as such. They, have. Like that in place in every department. The key of it is. There so understaffed that they cannot take on the type of workload that. A METRO AREA DENVER A. Atlanta Baltimore Mineapolis. They don't have the resources for that and. If I may be so fold. We have politicians in place in offers that hey, you can get by on a two hundred, fifty thousand dollars budget for the year for that program alone. It doesn't work like that well, then and to your point directly wouldn't that justify an increase in the overall police budget to put people like that in place as opposed to defunding will again you've gotta remember you're dealing with politicians that they can get it in their pocket. It's all just a day for them. Absolutely I agree with that cryptic your thoughts. Well, yeah and I mean that's kind of where I was going is that you know not defunding the police but. They need to instead of defunding them they need to add funds to them because to make those kinds of programs or to hire more people that they can. Do that they pay them. I mean. You know I know cops were scared life every day dealing with any of those situations I mean. In a sense, you need to pay the the therapist or the counseling or whoever those people are you need to pay them. A. In, a in a matter of speaking pay wage worth their life. Oh, absolutely I mean everybody got to eat. We all agree with that concept but job comes with certain wrists that they shouldn't be naive to. When walking into the situation I mean agree or disagree.

Defund The Police??? - burst 01

"Patriots Paul Spartan here from the Midnight Patriots. So, one of the. Feel about anchored now. When we started this insanity we always tell people. The reason we do this is because insomnia sucks almost as bad as tyranny. We would have these conversations between ourselves the group chats. Throws and things like that. We thought, hey man, you know we should just record a podcast but the more we looked the more expensive became. We Cross anger. Anger gives you all the tools you need to do this to make your voice heard and get your voice out there. You have an opinion you gotta use anchor everything from recording to editing to distribution that you'd be all the tools that you need. To allow you to record your podcast right for your phone or your computer. Anchor covers distribution by getting on. Apple. spotify and many many others I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple and effective. So get yourself anchor make voice her. All Right Patriots welcome again to another episode of the Midnight Patriots. Here from the Mile High Command Center the paper to PRICELESS DOT COM studios. Of today, we're going to be discussing the defunding police movement an idea that has picked up steam recently has become a rallying cry for far left protesters, rioters and seemingly anarchist groups. And we wanted to put some thoughts out there about this It seems to me that. We have a problem that requires more of a solution than just defunding. Systemic racism in my opinion is Beth. now, some people would with that. That said. If the narrative that we're going to be that is being shoved down our throats is to be believe that people of Color of. All Ages? Seated shining see in this country are being quote hunted by racist armed hate-mongers. Now that said if if that is in fact, the case. Why would you wanNA define the one organization that has the legal authority in the equipment. To protect you. That seems like a pretty fall said, it seems like a false dichotomy false comparison a false premise to start conversation PHOENIX. What are your thoughts? You know I'm GonNa take this a step further. The phone, the police movement. That is going to move a certain direction and stop. Once, they have figured out that. The one entity. That has sworn upon their own life to defend. There's like. Is Actually doing the job. We. Look at Minneapolis looks. legit. Atlanta's for the three top of my head. All of them have the same premise of less defunding. On the police, define the police. It went a step further into. Let's abolish the police install a private. Very. Force. That has absolutely no training. As No understanding of each individual law that a grand jury a whatever. If. Going to try and paying on. A criminal, a offender, a day walker anybody. Whatever you WANNA call it. So. My name might taking this step further into the question is what exactly we're trying to de-fund. I. Do numerous other people and no. One can give me an answer. It's always just defined defunding. Okay. So Great. Now we have a narratives being Ramdan, our throat. When all in all actuality is, hey, let's just bringing this back to the wild west little set like men up. Yeah I mean that's exactly the way I. See it is if you're going to defend the police and define them then yeah. What we're GONNA have is is you know the your your proverbial gun show earth sugar your gunfight at high noon in the middle of the street. That said cryptic. What are your thoughts on the matter? While I mean if you go I, find that going to be very odd if they try and go wild west because you know the same group behind the protests in the defunding, the police are the same ones who want to raise taxes and have all these limitations on ammo and guns and everything else that. You're going to be able to do that. We're going to have to throw stones at each other. Because, they're going to keep trying to get rid of. Guns and AMMO. I mean. It's maximilian face with white gloves and We'll go back to sword fight fifth. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because you know guns don't have near the range of a sword. A you know. That's an excellent point. I mean, they're they're trying to you know the presumptive destroyed comedy Slimy Joe. Biden. Has Basically announced that east common for the guns and they're going to basically raise taxes on firearms and ammunition to where they are completely unaffordable to anyone that's not in the billionaire boys You know that'd be that being said. How and how the me get to this point I mean you're you're talking about defunct not not obviously not us we think it's a crazy. Lunatics idea. What do they want to replace it with? I mean, let's let's be honest mental Minnesota in Minneapolis the same city council that saw fit to abolish the police department Arben has hired mercenaries for the private security force. Now. I see a far more disturbing outcome here boys, and that is that you know we have people acting with the fourth and backing of the law. And have no oath to uphold the constitution they're loyal only to money. That's a win win. If you're a leftist Marxist wants to light the constitution on fire because you have thugs running around at the under the color and force of law with automatic weapons. Now, if people think that trump is ending in in the army, what do you think's going to happen when we have quote unquote law enforcement that has no that are basically political puppets. Call that. KGB Custodio or exactly. Exactly. You'RE GONNA turn from. You know right now everybody's all up in. Arms with you know Military. Being, sent to Seattle and stuff like that like military forces or. Whatever that whatever they are that they're complaining about having martial law budget they wanNA with the funding this which are gonNA run into is you're actually GONNA run into mercenaries Latsis.

The 'Brilliant Asshole' Who Almost Blew Up Coinbase

Unconfirmed: Insights and Analysis From the Top Minds in Crypto

The 'Brilliant Asshole' Who Almost Blew Up Coinbase

"I wanted to tell the story of Crypto. There's other bitcoin books out there. Of course but I wanted to make a successful to a broader audience people in finance academia so it is sort of plain English narrative of the story of Coin Base to tell the larger story of CRYPTO and how Wall Street Silicon Valley are coming closer together and it also includes a lot of gossip about the early days of Crypto the infighting in the world of Crypto and also just how they pulled it off to my my thesis Queen Basis basically becoming the crypto version of J. P. Morgan. They're going to be a bank one day and I wanted to tell the evolution of how that came to be and in the course of the evolution. What would you say were the biggest turning points I think the story of Crypto. Forgive me I'm GonNa ask the question. Broadly at first the larger story of CRYPTO. I think our biggest challenge is to go from being sort of a subculture of tech people who are passionate about it to something that can be embraced by everyone and I think they're getting there slowly and I think coin base has played a big role in that. I think by trying to walk the legal line if help to mainstream at so. That's I think but in terms of specific turning points I think the funding rounds obviously and I think just their success building highly usable APP and and also I think just sort of winning over enough mainstream people is what was one of the tipping points because the other thing I discovered in reporting the book allot people don't like is very much in terms of the old school. Crypto people. Because they're like you know not your coins not your keys and I understand that position but the thesis. I think I try to make is that. There's room enough for both camps. You're a hard core stored only on your wallet. That's fine nothing stopping you and I think coin base has bringing in millions more. Bitcoin buyers has helped build. Ecosystems that crypto general concerns and part of the reason people object to coin as holding people's keys and the fact that it goes against that. Not Your keys not your coins. Ethos is that it really puts the onus of security on a centralized place which makes that also an attractive honeypot for attackers so in terms of security which basically was pretty much of the utmost priority for coin base. How did that go for them? I think a tidbit. I revealed my book. You know. 'cause coins likes to boast. They've never been hacked. That's not actually true in the early days when there was five them because Charlie and Brian Federalism in a couple of other folks People one of their outside vendors dead did get in and robbed their hot wallets. The of tune of two hundred fifty thousand dollars can't remember how many bitcoin to was the time it was a lot. This was long time ago. Of course this was like twenty thirteen or twenty fourteen. But you know that's something I uncovered in the reporting so that coin base is very secured has a good reputation but they haven't been infallible. That's for sure and another time when it seemed that coin base was at odds with the broader crypto community was during the bitcoin block size debate. What is your take on? How coin be handled? That said at your excellent article on the big blockers versus small blockers of Twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen. And you know I mean I confess. I had some sympathy for coin based in that because this will probably not make me very popular but I find a lot of the more ideological people in crypto sort of tribal and I don't think Brian helped himself. Because I think he wrote a blog posts saying you're mature and stuff you know win over people that way So I think there's fault on both sides but at the same time I think. A lot of the crypto believers beloved crypto. They love Bitcoin but can also shoot themselves to foot foot a little bit by making it. Such a sort of subculture insiders group that if they keep up. That attitude crypto cannot go mainstream. Because it's just you unapproachable from a social technological point of view so I do have some sympathy for For Brian in the coins crew in that way and as you kind of alluded to earlier coin base has had a tricky line to walk. Which is that. They've been trying to comply with regulation while also serving. This broader Crypto community which does contain more libertarian elements also has its origins safer punk movement. How would you say coin? Base has Navigate those waters. Well I mean you know Crypto has also you know skirted regulatory lines a few times. No thing I bring up to the book to is the early days with when they thought this is sort of funny. Actually because apple didn't allow crypto trading on their apps once upon a time so Brian FEDOR SIM decided to gio fence. Cupertino which is sort of funny so that meant that anyone in Cupertino would not be able to trade or by sell on the APP and of course. Cupertino were apple's quality check. Engineers are so that was a clever half. The meanwhile everyone else was trading as far as apple could tell people couldn't trade and of course they got caught named kicked out of the apple store for the year so that was sort of funny and then more seriously. I think Silicon Valley Bank which is one of the few entities that will bank tech crypto companies. They got cold feet after think. Frederickson did a presentation explaining how. Bitcoin could be used to skirt sanctions. He wasn't suggesting it he was just describing it because you know bitcoin of courses decentralized but at that point Silicon Valley Bank. Toss Them House coin. Basis a customer which is is very serious antioch because we don't have a bank. It's hard to carry on so a Quin base. Certainly made his missteps then but since I think they've done a better job of through walking the line and that raises another interesting point though by complying with US regulations which I think many crypto correctly say or too onerous that opened the door for finance to start running circles around them. And I think that's was. An is a very interesting story. The Nimble ability of finance to build what they want and operate the way they want to and coin based became bureaucratic as a result of having to comply with regulations and culturally to I think they busted out of that bed when it brought Balaj shrimp in on but I think you know the the thing is a mixed blessing for them. It's helped them become mainstream but it's also impeded their ability to

NFL 2020 Free Agency Predictions

"This is my favorite time of year I like to refer to it as camper time in the NFL as free agencies get ready to start here in a little less than a month and that this kind of stuff happens at the combine doesn't it a little bit yeah and and first of all one nice thing about the profession that I have is you know I can't say Hey I'm busy and then like you can turn on the TV and I got a phone line or not this is nice you got to tune in to get out he actually it's but anyway you know this year just because of the way the schedule is two weeks between when free agency begins in and won the combine is you may actually see less tampering than than ever before just because there's there's a camper window and there's a lot of time to to get things done I mean there's there's definitely a possibility that teams leave here without really having a great sense with the free agent market is and without really having a great sense of where guys are going and then it should be two weeks of scrounging around and ensure trying to get the info and you know some of the other stuff that we live in our jobs in I've been intrigued by this NFL collective bargaining agreement that's been going on between the players and the owners one of the things that I'm really intrigued in is the movement from Tuesday to Thursday for a franchise in transitional tags yeah I did that happen mainly they're just not gonna be enough time I mean there is a possibility tomorrow that there's a new CBA there's also a possibility that there's no new CBA and teams are going to have the ability to franchise and transition players and that landscape changes dramatically I mean you have teams like you know the Tennessee Titans which could lose one of their top players in you know either Ryan Tannehill R. Derrick Henry you have the cowboys who could franchise or transition you know teams can use both if there's no new CDA if there is an issue BA they can only use one that's dramatic so I think they they just wanted to give teams time to really find out their options figure out what they're going to do if we get any CPA which is no guarantee we get sold sold your timing on this is within the next twenty four hours or so because it's possible yeah so so that's it that's it that's interesting because when you look at all the deals that are out there you would think that the owners will go ahead and secure the gods they want right now rather than wait to find out what's going to happen the collective bargaining agreement yeah but the problem is you have agents who know that the salary cap might go up I mean it's not going to be a lot but it also goes up five million dollars if you're dak Prescott don't you go or you know whoever Amari Cooper whoever that is a little more that like if you're planning on making a guy salary act and the salary cap goes up to five and five you know five million dollars a year then the player should be given more right so I think what you're seeing now is everyone's in a little bit of a standstill because no one knows what the actual landscape it is and it's not a place where in a lot because in the NFL everyone planned so meticulously but because of the CBA landscape that's exactly what's happening right now I even if you were a fly on the wall during our show on Friday we had a ton of discussions about this this new collective bargaining agreement that is going to be voted on by the the full arsenal of players and and big al was the the team representative for the NFL PA for eight of his nine years in the league it is very much bothered by the fact that the the team representatives were nods able to vote first before they went to the full legal why did they skip that part of the process we which part of the process because well what what we put out their own nothing Friday is that they're going to the plaza sociais Asian is going to bypass the the player reps and go right to the players and now we found out that it's going to be a simple majority from the player's association player reps and then they'll decide whether or not they take it over to the players it's just it feels like that it's been shut down to players the approach right now yeah I need it don't delay it's going to be now is there's so we we've seen the executive committee which actually negotiated the deal that both against it right and I'm kind of way in which crazy balancing them kind of way and and then the only change now is they're going to do a vote of the NFL P. A. player wraps but they don't need a two thirds vote now they only need a simple majority to pass it on to the entire group of players that's been a small ship but it might actually you know actually get a deal done yeah the two thirds of the player reps no recommended then they make their official recommendation to the players to ratify it that's really the only difference so it is actually going to the rap's first before the entire body of players take in do you think that there was a chance that what the executive committee voted on and discussed during their meeting with the NFL owners and that's a that's a board of eleven players so there's no ties is always a tie breaker okay voted against it do you think that that seventeen game was added at the last moment in the twelfth hour all now that's what's interesting in every single negotiation not the executive committee has had with the NFL owners has included a seventeen game every single one every single every single offer back and forth has been based around the seventeenth game that's what's that's what's just crazy about the executive committee coming out against it is they've known that every day getting a C. B. A. don was predicated under adding a game and of course getting a lot more money for the players what they want there was some information out there that was released I think over the weekend that the seventeenth game is gonna be played for two hundred fifty thousand dollars cap yeah is there any truth to that it's kind of true so it you know I. as in everything else trying it really depends on how you look at so you know for most of the players you know eighty percent of the players they're gonna get properly compensated for adding a seventeen they'll get a a raise in their game check basically the get an additional game check for the players who make now for the players who make a significant amount more you know J. J. watt of the world for instance they will not get any more than twenty fifty thousand dollars for that seventeen game alone but obviously there's signing bonuses roster bonuses and all sorts of different ways to change salaries so it only applies to the game check so yes it's true but it affects an unbelievably few amount of players yeah it where there's a will there's a way to get these guys paid but you know we talked about it would you just kind of popped over that kind of speed bump over that because if you take away twenty percent of the top twenty percent of the NFL are we talking about the XFL now we're talking about the base of Reuters minimum guys rookies except you know kind of players

Los Angeles: Trump Pardons LA Billionaire Michael Milken: ‘He Suffered Greatly’

"President trump went on a pardoning spree on Tuesday for a WHO's who of individuals convicted of white collar crime. A total of eleven people were given commutations or pardons and this follows. How should we say troubling history of prior pardons from this White House including Joe Arpaio Scooter Libby and an Extra Sousa? There was no indication that he followed the typical Justice Department vetting process for these sorts of things but rather that he heard recommendations from a cast of characters including his personal lawyer and czar of corrupt overseas action. Talk about Rudy Giuliani. Perhaps the biggest name of the pardon bunch was Rod Blagojevich the former Democratic governor of Illinois. So get in. W T F. Yeah indeed I mean so. Blagojevich is a good place to start with all of this because it gives us an example a window into the kinds of people that were pardoned on Tuesday. Blagojevich solicited bribes for political appointments including for one Barack Obama's open Senate seat after he was elected president The selling of a Senate seat is not something that typically happens in America. He was impeached and removed from office and Blagojevich had completed eight years of a fourteen year term and trump commuted the arrested on Tuesday. We have commuted the sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail. A long time and I watched his wife on television. I don't know him very well. I bet him a couple of times. He was on for a short while the apprentice years ago very nice. I don't know. Wow imagine thinking the apprentices like a good judge of character. It's not even a good show. Well okay. So presumably. The rest of the pardons were not all people featured at one time on the apprentice right so like who else got him. It would be incredible if they were Unfortunately they're not. There was Michael Milkin who is referred to as the quote Junk Bond King. He was accused of taking part in an insider trading scheme and pled guilty to several counts of securities violations. Now he had served twenty two months in prison and since he was released he has been funding medical research into cancer more recently. Ironically though when milken getting in trouble in the nineteen eighties one of the people pursuing charges against him was Giuliani. Who was then the top prosecutor for the Southern District of New York how the turntables according to The New York Times One of the people that suggested this part into trump was Nelson peltz. He is a billionaire investor. Who held a ten million dollar fundraiser? For Trump's twenty twenty campaign this past weekend again. This is normally not how this would work recommendations pouring in from random personal or business acquaintances acquaintances at events for your reelection campaign. So I'm sensing a bit of a pattern here in terms of decision making. Yeah so the other two high profile ones here were for former New York City police. Commissioner Bernard B Kerik and a former owner of the San Francisco Forty niners Edward J debartolo. Junior someone's GonNa assume that these fellows they did all the similar things. Yeah basically. Yeah I mean carrick was found to have accepted a two hundred fifty thousand dollar quote unquote loan from an Israeli billionaire while he served as Interior Minister of Iraq. The issue there was that he didn't disclose it Carrick. Later pled guilty to eight felony tax and false statement charges now for deer Tolo. He actually never served a prison term but paid a million dollar fine after pleading guilty to concealing extortion attempt in Nineteen. Ninety Eight. Believe it had to do with a Casino Boat. Type situation. I would like to read a little bit more about it as well Interestingly as well for him DEBARTOLO was among the host of a pre inauguration. Party for trump in two thousand seventeen so to recap just these four examples. It was a long list of people who committed pretty major financial crimes and weren't necessarily the first people on top of mind for

What I Learned by Being a Part of Taylor Swifts First $1 Million Dollar Month on eCommerce with Brendan Kane

"Brendan Learns By. Being a part of Taylor Swift's first million dollars a month on ecommerce with some incredible things that you you can learn more Brendan's learned over the years and first and foremost less talk about generating followers. I mean we are looking to create movements. We're we're looking to create this mission where people WANNA see. Our flag is planted in the C. N.. They want to follow us. They want to know that we stand for something and they wanNA stand by that. The thing with US end Brendan talked about how you generated one million followers in just thirty days sounds pretty insane. So really were that kind of stemmed from his. I spent fifteen years building brands. And helping you know big celebrities like a Taylor Swift's or an MTV or Riyan on building building platforms Promoting movies and listen was a great experience really enjoyed it but but it really seemed idea. My head is like take off a learning experience experience in a renewed I built in apply to somebody starting from scratch starting from zero because I would get asked that question all the time and I'm of the mindset that I want to actually try things I don't WanNa Irizar and talk I wanNA actually building create so when thinking about okay. Who would be the perfect person to run this experiment experiment on NC? What was possible? I thought why not myself because I had never been on television film. I'm not a professional athlete or a Rockstar. And that's that's where I set out on this journey to generate a million followers in thirty days. I did that task on facebook and have been building a separate set of methodologies and processes for instagram which I've been I've built it to be able to generate between one hundred twenty two hundred fifty thousand dollars a month and we're about to see if we can push that up to two hundred fifty thousand dollars a month but that's really kind of the mindset when methodology. Ah or the reason that I went on that path. How let's talk specifics? How did you do it in? What recommendations tips tools tactics would you give to our listeners today? Fire nation if they're looking adding to generate a significant number of followers in a short period of time as well. Yeah so I'll start with that question first and then I can dive into tips because I think it's really important important to understand the mindset behind this like why are you doing this. Why do you want to generate followers? What is your return on investment? Look like what is the end goal like so many people get into this and don't really understand why they're doing it and then when they actually get into it they realize how much work it is because because it's not just about generating their followers like generating followers. Sure we can help people get followers quick. But it's really what you do with them. It's the content behind it being able to connect with that audience in a meaningful away and foster relationship. So I think it's super critical to understand what your goals are what that return on. Investment looks like it doesn't necessarily have to be it direct attribution to revenue so in my case when I generate a million followers in thirty days it was to get a literary agent get a publishing deal and then speak around the world and then all AH generated attention to be on a press outlets like your amazing podcast. You know it just generates opportunities from there. So mine wasn't element of becoming coming influence or generate brand deals or sell our products. It was more of a back end approach to generating revenue because for some people. Like if you're an e commerce business or you're just trying to sell off I really wouldn't focus on followers in the beginning. Our focus on lead generation and Direct Response Marketing of Regina ad platforms to do that versus generating followers trying trying to sell them in terms of specific tips like the biggest thing that generate success excess both in generating powers generating engagement generating sales leads. Its content everything comes down to content. And if you're not good at it creating content you're not going to be successful. So what are the areas that we strive to be experts in one of the ways that we've got good at content content is really having a an agile approach to creating content not spending too much money in a specific direction until it's proven and then also testing content is testing content as much as possible to really learn an experiment because one of the biggest mistakes I see people make as they invest way too much in a specific direction. They don't look get any the analytics or data and they don't try and take the information and learnings to improve their content on a daily basis and a long term basis. So I exercise that I did in terms of generating a million dollars in three days on instagram or on facebook was leveraging the advertising platform as is a market research tool most people. Use It as a media buying tool or an advertising tool where they don't really realize the power behind it to be able to test content at scale you're where you can take one piece of content and tested one hundred or two hundred different ways to really understand what it takes to get somebody to perform specific action action and take those insights learnings to really fuel your short and long-term content strategy and with instagram. It's a bit different but what we do is we. We still test content and content actively we just. Don't use the ad platform to do that. We actually test content by syndicating out and other accounts and seeing what the effectiveness combat content is to drive traffic back and follow on my counter or clients accounts that we work with. So you know how to run social media like a celebrity A. You've done it for celebrities. You study celebrities and how they do it. The successes the failures the in betweens. Let's breakdown three ways that we as entrepreneurs this can run our social media lake a celebrity. Yeah I think that the first way is people often. I advise certain celebrities that are on on their way up and they look at like a Kim Kardashian or somebody that has hundred like one hundred million followers and understand how they acquire that it really comes down to distribution content. So you look at Kim Kardashian. She is on. She's on obviously very successful TV show. She's in magazine. She's she's on print. He's on billboards. She's on radio. All those things drive traffic back to her social channel so one of the biggest lessons that they always talk to people about is Gore. The traffic is don't try and create from scratch. Where is your audience? Currently what accounts do they it. Follow what blogs do they follow. What website today read? If you can get on podcast or radio or potentially televisions make a list of all the places the your audience currently exists in the euro strategic ways to get in front of those audiences how can you provide value to those accounts. Or how can you create compelling content onto those people wanna post and that's really how celebrities become celebrities or how rockstars become rockstars is they go where the distribution outlets outlets are they harnessed that traffic and drive it back one of the perfect startup. Examples of this of all time is youtube is how they got acquired for one point six billion alien dollars in less than two years two or three years and the way they did it as a basically funneled olive mice faces traffic back to their platform because at the time when Youtube was I created. My space. Didn't have video player so youtube created an embedded player that my space profiles could than are mice face users. A user could embed on their my space profile. And once everybody's friends saw that you had a youtube player you would just click that logo to their platform and create that embed code drive back so I think that. That's you know. One specific tactic that people can have a lot of success with in terms of the principles of of being a celebrity. And I think one of the important lessons is once you start to scale is. How can you build your brand for longevity because you don't want to be one of these? He's flaming stars that that peaks too soon and

"Barsky on the next barsky radio. You never know. What's going to happen on season? Two of celebrity president watching. I can't wait to challenge a three or three about that. And a whole bunch of other things. We'll see you then eight fifty WFAN Solters be millions of people watching Sunday Super Bowl just for the hell over. Plenty of folks who have a lot riding a whether doing when patriots or the Los Angeles Rams will win. That's because a lot of people have money on the game. You watching the game. Of course. According to the American gaming association about ten percent of Americans say they will bet on this Sunday's game which translates to about twenty two point seven billion people at about six billion dollars in bets. I used to work for a guy when I first moved down south Florida worked for a guy with Herbie. Herbie had a lot of money Herbie back two hundred fifty thousand dollars on the Super Bowl. At the game. I can't remember what year was a who was playing. But I just remember he showed us his ticket his receipt. From the bookie that he places us through here in south, Florida. Herbie lost. He was so pissed off came in the next day that Monday, I'll never forget because he was nastier. I mean he was destined to begin with. But he was even nastier doll of us. Like, it was our fault that he lost a quarter of a million dollars. But since then I found out that a quarter million dollars is nothing compared to what some people throw down on this game. The interest, really amazing. And by the way. I haven't been. Had time because my mom's in a hospital haven't had time to actually go to the pool and see the the condo mafia who in past years of. Tracked me down to throwing twenty bucks for the what do you call it? The box thing which I've never won before ever. And I I'm kind of glad I didn't go to the pool and get suckered into that again because I am starting to think that that's just a sucker's bet. Because you really don't know. I mean, it's your chances are as good as anybody else that supposedly. But it's just the same as playing laundry, though, it's the same thing. Really? I think you'd have better odds with the lottery, I doubt it. There's no way. Lottery nations. I think. Of course, there are but I've never won on the football. But have won the lottery, I'm surprised. We don't have one of those boxed in here at the radio station. This has got to be the only radio station have ever worked at. And I've worked at a lot of radio stations that doesn't have like a box that's going around unless there is a we don't know about it, which is very possible to. They might just have one in the sales department. We don't know. So anyway, currently eight states offer legal regulated sports betting, which is why about one point eight billion in those Americans plan to bet illegally through a bookie with billions more placing a bet illegally through offshore online bookies. So the question is who is everyone. Ben in for the pulse finds it about fifty two percent of Americans would putting their money on the Rams to win while forty percent will bet on the patriots, by the way, speaking of the patriots. What's that guy's name? Thom burnett. Tom L come on, really. Football guy. But really? Right Brady Brady Brady like the Brady bunch. Okay. I won't forget that again. Yeah. Tom Brady says I think this is pretty cool. I mean, let's face it. We know he's got to be a multimillionaire Bernau. Right. Of course. Right. But probably everyone in that game probably as important anyway. And and his wife the beautiful model. We know shoes a millionaire to Tom's doing something. I think that's pretty cool which he's never done before. Which I find to be very odd. He's flying his entire family out for the game or down. I think he's lives in Boston. Yes. That would make sense. Right. So he's fighting everybody down for the game. Here's the thing today and again on Saturday, they're expecting major major snowstorms in Atlanta where the Super Bowls being held. I don't know if you remember a couple years ago when Atlantic two inches of snow. At a crippled the city for days right now. It started actually I believe on Sunday or Monday of this week. It's the week. I don't know. Is there a name for the week of festivities leading up to the Super Bowl Super Bowl week? I just think it's Super Bowl week all kinds of really cool stuff. You haven't been Super Bowl? I wish now. Oh, my God is a great experience, especially when you go through the week of stuff leading up and all the players are there for press conferences, pretty cool stuff. So we'll see what happens the Madden game, by the way, pick the Rams to. Yeah. So we'll see I think to fix his ember will sit oh come on. But you know, what we'll talk about it next Monday. And we'll see how the players go though. Again, I'm going to come off sounding ignorant here. But I'm just laying it out online fear. I don't really understand football. I don't understand what certain plays mean or what the linesmen or any of that. But I'm sure if there's anything controversial won't be alerted to that, or at least I'll know right away, and we can talk about it on Monday. So do you think's gonna win? I hope the Rams, but I think the patriots. Why don't you send the patriots are going to win because the patriots of the patriots? They're there forever for reason. They're just great. And they're really the best quarterback of all time. And I just hate him. Now, do you think that if they took Tom Brady and Tom Brady played for the Rams? The Rams would win. No matter what. Or is it a whole team thing? Like if you flip the the quarterbacks, I think the Rams were winning a landslide and the Rams have a much better team. So you so okay. Maybe that's a bad example. So if you took Tom Brady and put them on the saints. What would they win? No. But that's because Tom if there's one quarterback that has as good in the league. It's Tom Brady is probably drew Brees. Okay. So I'm I'm picking places. I don't know if you took the New York Giants you put Tom Brady on there. I'm trying to determine if it's all Tom Brady. Or is it the actual team? The giants is Briggs problem is that they don't have a quarterback. So. Yeah. They have plenty of talent. All right. Chevy. Put a great quarterback on any team. They have a chance to win. But I was trying to determine if you were if you were alluding to that it's the whole team or it's just all no. I think it's the patriots. I think it's just as much about Bill Belichick and how great he is their coach. He is a really good coach. Although I've never really understood how the coach and one of these games. Actually affects the game because the coach directs you where to go. It's like our program director tells us, here's some tell us what to say. But he'll say, you know, how you do something how how you could make this could have been made better by doing it. So it's different. Everybody's got a coach. There's a big difference coaching is one of the most important things in football. Well, how how I mean players just suck players. Don't sucker out. They wouldn't be playing in the league. We're talking about the NFL is the top one percent of the top one percent only the elite people that ever make it out of the college ranks ever make it in the NFL. So every single person in the NFL is a great player whether they're a star like Tom Brady era JJ watt. Obviously those are the one percent of the one percent of the one percent. But every team has got plenty of talent. The problem is is there's not every team has a great coach. You can see the difference in look at the Rams the Rams team when they hired Sean McVeigh. I remember let me just interject for one second. I remember going to Rams games when I lived in Saint Louis Saint Louis was so disappointed when the Rams went to LA warranty and Elian before they were in LA, then they went to Saint Louis, and they went back to LA. Yeah. So people in Saint Louis hate the Rams down. Yes. Because they left a gun. So, but but the point is is coaching matters so much because Jeff Fisher with the Rams was an eight nine eight nine and seven team every year. All of a sudden, Sean McVay comes in the very next year. They don't get a huge difference in talent their players don't change that much. But they win. It was like ten or eleven games. They go to the play. They almost go to the playoffs. And then the next year in the Super Bowl coaching is a huge huge factor in the NFL. How do they do? It was my Jerry Seinfeld personally, by the way, eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five eighty five Mike in Miami. How are you today? You think the fix is in? Doing good. All right. Knowing what is going to win that game by ten and you're right on that New Orleans game. It was. Third down and nine or something like that. With two minutes ago or a minute and a half minute and fifty six seconds. It was right after two minute warning. And they threw a pass down to the six that was interfered on, but they didn't call it. So they had kick appeal. Which turned into a thirty two year old still go with a minute, forty seven seconds. If they called that play pants interference. There would have been personally goal from the sex. They would have on it three times. Which would have bought the down the clock down before four seconds. They were caught a timeout with four three six. The twenty two yard field till the end again Rams would have never seen the ball. Again. Again came over the biggest non call in NFL history. And. I think the rains has a weight to sue the NFL and the referees were missing that call. But you know, what they want is. They want to redo they want to change the Super Bowl. That's what they're trying to do just days before. Radio. At this point. They're definitely not going to get that. But you know, something should happen. They should at least get some money from it. I would make sure there's never wept. Another game. I read an article that four of us referees have ties to Southern Cal fan. That's what I that's what I said including the head referee who's got officiate the Super Bowl. He's from there as well. And I think that's right. I just think that spells. Absolutely, right. If they made that call the pass interference raven a personal helmet-to-helmet, bursting balls inside the they were. On it right out the clock. The same. The game winning field goal. No talk. It just smells funny way wrong. All right. I'll tell him. You too. Thanks, so much eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five eighty five Jim and Wellington. How are you today? How you doing good? So what do you think you think the fix is? Or what? I don't know it might be. But what I really like. And I worked at a store we did a lot of the former NFL players shop for men's clothing store. But. And what they need to do is kid challenge. A call. Like a foul challenge. It right. The NFL shouldn't say, which they don't have the ability to say, wait a minute. Your call. Maybe the only one of those entire day, but they had been able to challenge that. There's no way wouldn't have been called there. So I think that's what the NFL unfortunate. I do think they were robbed. But let's here's it's so bad in the future. This care. Yeah. It's pretty interesting stuff to say the least. Something that might actually thinking about doing. Lost respect for Roger Goodell. Few years ago. I forgot what the situation was exactly that. He did. But that guy makes so much money and he made such such bad. I think he makes bad decisions. And I think he's just doesn't to protect not only the franchise but his own pocket as well. I think he's afraid to make calls from people up to forty afraid. Already some people are there's no there's no doubt about it. I believe he's in that category. And again, it's because so many millions of dollars a year the NFL brings in millions and millions of billions of dollars a year. And you know, they just try some people just like to not be controversial controversial. They just like to. No matter what everybody works with somebody like that. That's kind of like Garrett Garrett doesn't like to fight with anybody else like to get into arguments. All those voice did go a little bit my first time. So maybe there's you know, aside, I don't to him. That you talking about. Hopefully, maybe there's something like this in your future. We'll see thank you so much. I appreciate your call eight seven seven eight fifty eighty five eighty five you know, what I'm saying. They're no, I'm good. Sure. I got a Black Panther started coming up. And if you have an iphone, you gotta pay attention. What I'm going to tell you about this. Facetime software floor law allows iphone spying. I'll tell you how you can prevent it. Coming.

"The off air number eight hundred six four four eleven fifty that's at Lucia capital group. Okay. So when we're talking about something like basis. This can get confusing. I think especially in terms of maybe homes and home sales and things like that. Because there somebody's basis and oftentimes most of the time people are borrowing money to purchase their home, and people don't always look at how much they paid for the home. They often look at how much they actually made. Once the loan is paid off on a home sale. And that's where I think some of the confusion arrives professor Plum before we really get into that though. Let's just talk about what basis is and why it's important the starting point for determining gain or loss on a particular asset. Now like John was saying I buy a house for two hundred fifty thousand dollars have a two hundred thousand dollar mortgage. I live in it for a couple of years. I sell it for three hundred thousand dollars my mortgage at that point is down to like one eighty. A hundred and twenty thousand dollars worth of proceeds coming back. My way is that the tax Bill amount. Actually, no the loan has nothing to do with it. I paid two fifty four. It doesn't matter. Whether I put fifty of my own bunny plus borrowed two hundred thousand dollars to come up with a two fifty I still paid to fifty four. And so that's the starting point for determining gain lots now during the period of time where I owned it. Did I do anything that would change that basis did at a pool did I do something to improve the property? The, you know, did I do something that I paid more for that property. I put a pool in for twenty dollars. Why can't do a pool for twenty a basic pool in for fifty thousand you can't do a pool for twenty anymore? I don't think so I heard it advertisement the other day about, you know, basically, a basic pool, and it was fifty. Wow. Just a basic pool that was with Kennedy advertisement led me to believe. But okay, we're talking about a rectangle. Well, I've seen one of these circular pools that that once you once you pump it up, I think he probably get in there for less than ten fifteen bucks. Not not when you consider the cost of water where you live. Okay. Well, that's probably true. But anyway, yes, I understand how this works to fifty. But then I added things to it. So my basis may go up if I add money to it. So we have to look at now the other side we've seen a lot of people who bought houses for two hundred fifty there now worth five six hundred thousand dollars and they refinanced it. And they pulled money out to go on vacation to buy cars to pay the kids at tuition, so they may oh, you know, they paid to fifty four, but they may owe three or four hundred thousand on it now because they've been using the houses there ATM, and so they they sell it for five hundred they get one hundred thousand out of it and the thinking, okay, we're gonna pay tax one hundred grand. No, what'd you pay for it? What is your basis? What is the starting point for determining gain or loss? I paid two fifty four it. Maybe I improved a little bit. That's the basis the loan. You've already received the cash. So you're not you're selling it. Now, you're receiving less cash, but you took out cash before all of that is part of the taxable event that may or may not happen. You know, I own a mutual fund. I put in ten thousand dollars into a mutual fund in two thousand and three. It's now worth twenty five thousand dollars. If I sell it today to pay taxes on fifteen thousand dollars worth of game. I only put ten in that mutual fund probably has been paying distributions each year capital gain. Distributions may be dividends and things that are being reinvested. And I've been showing I didn't even know I was doing this because I gave all the information to the taxpayer. I've been showing taxable event every year of that capital gain of that distribution that was reinvested. I didn't receive any money in in real in real terms. They didn't send me a check. And then I sent them back check. But it's as if that's what happened and every time I added money to it all those distributions that occurred through the years have added to my basis, so maybe put ten into it. But through the years, I've paid tax on twenty of out of the twenty five. So now, if I sell it attacks on five thousand dollars, not fifteen thousand dollars so basis is how we determine gain or loss but basis, unfortunately can change, and it's what I paid for it less. What I've received back from a non-taxable standpoint. You know, what I sold it for and what I sold it for is net of the selling expense. I sell a property if I sell a property for two hundred and fifty thousand dollars you'll say outright cash, do I get a check for two hundred fifty thousand bucks. Probably not there's probably somebody in the middle. That helped me make that sale a realtor or somebody, and I'm going to show them some commission so for selling the property in most cases, and so that two hundred fifty maybe two forty I mean, whatever the number is, I don't know after selling expenses. So that's what I used to determine gain or loss by basis. My net. Selling proceeds paying off the mortgage is not part of the net. Selling proceeds it is from a cash standpoint. Well, it is but from a tax standpoint, no, cash wise, I may not be getting that much out of it from a taxable of it. And the nice thing about homes is they they exempt for for single independent primary residence two hundred and fifty thousand dollars of I the first two hundred fifty thousand dollars of capital gain, provided that you meet the requirements, which aren't all that stringent two year. You have to own it for an occupied it for at least twenty four out of the last six months. That's it two hundred and fifty thousand for single five hundred thousand for married. That's not the case though, of course, in other things like stocks, and I think an easy way to explain basis might be on the stock side where if I buy a stock. You know, I don't borrow from at all generally. Let's just say I don't ten I pay ten dollars for a stock it over the course of a few years, it it goes up to twenty dollars. I sell it for twenty and I did not reinvest any dividend. The better it goes up to some other number the difference between what I what I paid for it. And what I sold it for capital gain. Now is it a long term short term capital gain bought it in two thousand and eight and I'm selling it now in two thousand eighteen more than a year, that's a long term capital game. I was lucky enough to buy it, you know, February of this year this year, and I sold it a couple of weeks ago before the market went down. That's that's I've only a held it for less than a year. That's a short term capital gain. And that matters. Well, it's tax treatment for the short term versus long term. Well, it does. But as far as basic concerned, it's whatever I paid for it. It's whatever I paid for that particular stock or mutual fund if I pay ten dollars, I sell it for twenty my basis is ten I have a ten dollar gain. If I paid ten dollars, and it goes down to five, and I sell it because I think it's a dog my basis is ten I sold it for five I have a five dollar capital loss. Now, whether it's long-term or short-term depends on how long I held it. But for basis purposes, that's all it is. That's all it is. So the higher the basis then the game accessible game. Right. Exactly. If I have a ten dollar basis, but I sell it for twenty. There's a ten dollar game. How do I get my basis higher than that? So I don't have to pay taxes on that ten dollars. Well, we'll tell you. Some of the ways aren't always all that fun for you. They don't do.

We've got about thirty thousand and I'm trying to decide if I just wanted to all the house, or if I want to try invested into mutual funds and make some money off of it. What is your homework? It's about altogether about three thirty and on it. Not to fifty okay? Well, let's pretend you didn't have that thirty thousand. Why would you have not gone to the Bank and borrowed another thirty thousand on your house to invest it? I don't wanna get another loan. Okay. Well, what if you just refinanced and how to two hundred eighty thousand dollar loan instead of a two hundred fifty thousand dollars? History. Reduce the. I'm saying you had a larger loan by thirty thousand then what you have today. Okay. And invested that thirty thousand. Why haven't you done that? Okay.

"That amount of air tokens, they they returned their air to oaken and they get their hundred dollars back. Of but in the crypto currency world. Recision can be a little bit trickier because the SEC unanswered. What happens if the consideration pay wasn't cash, but was it self a different group of currency? So somebody paid for their air tokens with bitcoin or light pointer cerium or or some other currency the value both of the air tokens as well as the crypto that they used to purchase air tokens has fluctuated Lindley of there's been as as you all know, a pretty big market of run out and then collapse. So it's unclear what's going to happen, or what -sition companies are going to be in when called upon to issue any kind of recision to their investors. Some companies may be well suited to do it depending on whether they were able to convert their crypto in cash the top of market and for some. Companies may drive them out of business. I think for that reason it's unclear to me whether these two settlements are going to set a roadmap for ICO issuers, some of them may be easily able to afford a two hundred fifty thousand dollar penalty and recision offering to all their clients who want to take advantage of that. And some of them are gonna go out of business just on on two hundred fifty thousand dollar penalty. Get at senators just interesting things that can result as from from following the SEC's process, the first one that's really interesting that the Jason hinted at is the idea that when you typically make recision offer that is another offering of security to security and you need to comply with securities laws in making that decision offer. Except first of all you have a unaccredited investors that are probably much of the the limits for what is permitted under for example, maybe even reggae quash. But but having to go ahead with a regular across offering to unaccredited investors recision for or registering that recision offer is huge undertaking. So there's this I issue of if you go ahead, and you actually follow what the SEC said exactly you might actually be violating securities laws because that recision offer needs to be made comply with serious. Then you have to check issue that nobody really talks about it's this idea that these tokens may be viewed by certain regulators as truly being a consumer product or out of turn point. They might may truly become a consumer product or a commodity for that for that matter. And now, you're going to go ahead and make a recision offer or more importantly, if you're gonna file a form ten and treat these securities. And now, you're not really going to be able to use them the way you intended in the platform because securities aren't freely transferable in that same way. Then you're gonna have certain you could have certain issues from other regulators when you're you suddenly consumer products that aren't doing what you promise those consumers. They do. That's all very interesting. Okay. So if I am an issuer in I did my twenty seventeen ICO and it wasn't compliant necessarily with securities laws. What should I actually be thinking today? Chevy scare shy Goto contact SEC. Should I be thinking about recision, even though you just said that that's a highly complex process? Where do I do I stand should I be able to sleep at night? Well, yes, I think. Reading. If you have any trouble sleeping at night. You could read some of these SEC settlements. They. That. And if if not then, you know, maybe a strong scotch or something he the answer from as as the answer from all lawyers everywhere at all times. Is it depends. If if you were early on if you did a nice, yo early on the process, even before dour Munshi, and you didn't clear that much money, and you have enough money that you can reimburse it and your business may continue, and you're okay with registering your product as security because you intended to function as a security in those circumstances. It may be good idea to hire counsel engage with the SEC and see if you can come clean with the regulators and and live of less life. If some of those don't apply to you as I am. Agean are going to be the same of and you've got a tough choice because either you you go to regulators and try to come clean knowing that the penalties may be a severe perhaps more severe than your company can bear..
