Lionel Messi's Paris Saint-Germain Deal Includes Cryptocurrency Payment

"Apologies to the sporting savvy out there bear with us. But for those who don't follow football. You should know its biggest star argentinian. Lionel messi just left the club. He's been with for most of his career barcelona to sign a two year contract with paris. Saint germain often referred to as ps g. And that's how we'll continue to refer to them here why you may ask. Are we telling you this. No it's not an attempt after our previous victory and interesting nate and sport during his last appearance to make him love the beautiful game it has to do with. Nfc's you see big. Sports stars get paid big money and just the welcome package that gave messy was worth twenty five to thirty million euros. I would like a welcome back like that. It included some. Ps g crypto currency. Fan tokens from socio dot com. These tokens let fans hold them. Vote on some minor decisions regarding the club. Like what song is played in the stadium during warm ups or the message. That will be on the captain's armband for example. So ceo's dot com says. The sale of the tokens has generated close to two hundred million dollars for its partner clubs this year. They've got a good half dozen or so Partner clubs and of course fans who buy them and then try to sell them for more than they paid them for them. And there's a brisk business in that trading volumes before messy signed with. Pse reached one point two billion dollars so giving messy a bunch of them gives him a volatile asset that he could potentially sell for millions. And these things are benefiting. Ps as well the ps fan token generated thirty million euros in sales this past week and it's estimated. Ps g keeps about half of that. If not more

Will Selecta Biosciences be the Next Top Platform Biotech?

"The first company. I wanted to touch on is news from july lilly and they're huge company. Say like a large mega cap at one hundred and eighty three billion dollars and what they recently presented was the full data set from their molecule demand in alzheimer's disease. And this is a phase two trial looking at this antibody that targets a specific epoch on the amyloid beta approaching and this episode is only visible in established plaques. Now i don't want to belabor the point about the amyloid hypothesis which i've done in previous videos. Suffice to say that a number of different molecules have been attempted in this indication in specifically the mechanism of reducing amyloid plaques. And they've all failed and what we're seeing here is that in this multi center randomized double blind placebo controlled trial. That donna had a significant is what they're showing here in the air score but not a very profound impact on cognition and so they looked at this primary outcome the air score and this is a combination of the as well as the ads. Ads and so eight ask cogs general measure of cognition whereas the ads. I is a measure of activities of daily living. So they did a combined score with that and demanded mobs improvement led to a p value of point zero four so technically significant. But i'm not sure that if they replicated the stayed in a face. Three trout necessarily be positive. It is an interesting thing because when you look at the actual aid. S cog thirteen score. We don't see any significant change. It is better in indiana but not by a significant margin and then the mse score is basically no difference between the two so this is another data point to suggest that perhaps the amyloid beta hypothesis isn't one that these companies should be looking at and the last thing i wanted to show here. Is that the one thing that they do. See a significant change in the amount of amyloid in the brain and so the pet scan here to show that the dynamic treated group has a significant reduction in the amount of amyloid plaque in the brain compared to placebo. So the drug is able to reduce the emily beta plaques. But it's not able to improve cognition really as much as you would expect given the effect is there so i wanted to bring this up because there is an upcoming. Pdf date for biogen's advocating mob and this is going to be a huge movie for the stock and it was originally supposed to be in march but it was delayed until june seventh of this year. So keep your eyes on that. I don't know if i'm going to make any position on it. I think that the fda should not approve it given the results from the advisory committee but given that the so many is on this pdf. I feel like there's a chance at the fda could overlook that and end up approving drug. So it's definitely jairo word. Play and i would treat it as such and proceed likewise so that is eli lilly. I wanna quickly move on to another company in the alzheimer's face called novus and i touched on them in my previous video and what we heard in the last week was that they announced positive face to data and this is interim data showing the nbs for one or another name for the molecule is positive in improved speed and coordination in parkinson's patients. And this is a twenty five day treatment. Nine patients were in the treatment group and five or in the placebo and on the announcement of this data. I think the stock was trading around one hundred fifty maybe two hundred million dollars market valuation and went up to around two fifty three hundred before settling around two hundred and fifty million dollar market cap so big move up in the stock and i'll tell you the data. The ceo explained that the study was power to investigate a difference of twenty to twenty five percent in biomarker levels not to demonstrate efficacy making this data that much more significant so to provide some context. And why i think this is interesting. Is that i in my previous video. Didn't really seem to bullish on a novus and the reason for this is that it reminds me very closely other types of amyloid beta drugs because this drug reduces app the precursor protein to amyloid beta. So my rationale is that if they're targeting the same emily data pathway. Given that there's been so many molecules that have failed previously targeting that pathway. I don't expect that this one is going to be any different now. Having said that. I decided to take a position because we've seen over and over again. That companies have been able to spin face to data in a positive way that leads to these big increases in the sock even though in phase three there's an eventual failure so i decided to take a position in stock and i have been rewarded handsomely so far and i'm going to hold on to see the rest of the phase two data so to get the actual data here in one test that measures the speed of execution. The results were statistically significant. P equals zero point zero four showing that while parkinson's disease patients are slow in coding. Boxes met with an s four. Zero one improves their performance. In these same patients other test that measures coordination showed an improvement in their movements and was almost statistically significant peak will s- appoint zero seven. Then they say in all end. Es up tests performed the placebo group either stayed the same or performed worse than at baseline instead the a b s four zero one group either stayed the same perform better than at baseline and as we know. Md s up drs is a specific tasks that measures severity and progression of the disease.

David dark well. One of dispose. Major backers spark capital has suddenly announced. It is quote severing all ties with despu after claims of sexual assault against a member of dough bricks. Vlog squad arose last week. I suppose i need to back up and explain a bit david. Dobby has been called the jimmy fallon of gen z for his popular youtube videos which apparently focus on comedy and pranks and stunts and the like tens millions of subscribers. Nobody is one of those youtubers. That has one of those multimillion dollar mansions that is extensively the scene of a lot of his videos. He also has this sort of entourage of people known as the wlac squad who also star in his videos. It is a member of the long squad that is accused of the sexual assault though there have been some other questionable incidents lately that dober- himself has recently apologized for in video anyway without getting too in the weeds overall that last week mr dobric was losing sponsors left and right hellofresh dollar shave club. Ea sports seatgeek all severed ties. The very first link in the show notes can give you a rundown of all of that. Now normally i do tend to steer clear of these sorts of youtube star and influence or controversies but there is real sort of industry news here. Because i can't really recall seeing this happened before quoting techcrunch. In light of the recent news about the wlac squat and david dobric the co founder of despu. We have made the decision. To sever all ties with the company spark capital tweeted. We have stepped down from our position on the board and we are in the process of making arrangements to ensure we do not profit from our recent investment in despu and quote spark capital's decision to step back from the despu investment.

And if not rare it could trigger other investors with stakes in the company to do the same spark capital led a series a. in despu a twenty million dollar financing event that valued the company at two hundred million dollars less than a month ago. The current statement by spark does not indicate that the investment has been pulled from the company yet spark capital did not immediately respond to requests for comment in regards to what this process would look like and if the shares will be sold back to the company or to another buyer

Emerging Opportunities and Exciting Business Lessons with John-Paul Iwuoha

"Now. We are talking about africa. I wanna know john paul. Why why do we need to keep africa on our radar very interesting question. So one one thing that keeps me. Loyal to entrepreneurs on fire is the quality of stories and experiences of ultra preneurs. Who've made it that's one big reason. Why listen and. I'm also sure that's why many people listen to the show but interesting is what being on entrepreneur means that you're able to live in the now and also prepare for future so it's almost impossible to think about the future and nothing about and here's why when you look at the population of the world. Africa correctly has the youngest population of people. Right now sixty percents of people on the continent of the age of twenty five. So this is more or less looking at china. Before china became china up to date china more or less the second biggest economy in the world the factory of the world and all of that so you can imagine that people who saw china. The china became china. Actually the ones who got in on the meat of the game. So that's exactly what africa represents but more importantly there have been events in the past couple of years that have put africa in the centerpiece. The very most the most recent one which is very interesting is covid now all the time most companies have built their supply chains around china and south east asia but then when it hits it was obvious that supply chains with very vulnerable. And if you're going to diversify your supply chain. It's impossible not to look at africa if you're looking at affordable label if you look at them. The truck symmetry of the continental either north america or europe. And what are the means. Most countries on the continent either speak english or french and these are more or less global line. Which is you're going to penetrate any of the big markets and. It's really now happening. Because what the chinese are doing is the chinese. Market is starting to specialize in advanced high-tech stuff. I most of those low cost production that brought business the whole of storing from america. When are beginning to see going to places like vietnam. Bangladesh and other countries in southeast asia. But then you cannot forgo a population of one point three billion people which is what africa presents and what we're seeing is some companies setup accretions within the african continent places like rwanda at the opium ghana senegal. And what they're doing is they are preparing. These guys are digging for the future and one interesting. That's happened in the last four years in america. Is the people in africa. So in america when you think about africa the image that comes to mind is charity and philanthropy. Africa needs. Needs help and help and help. So the approach of the americans this time and even europe has been to help africa give africa aid. Give them all of that. What the chinese are doing is they're coming with more or less trade and business and things. What africa needs really because you have this population of very young people enterprising people. I mentioned that sixty percent of the world's uncle beats at arable. Land is in africa so in most parts of the world with maxed out the land space. Yes we're doing. We're using technology and other means to increase the yield on the land. But when we're talking about virgin space. Federal land arable land. Most of it is still in africa. Still cultivated and we're looking at a global population that is set to double back at least by the time we reach two hundred fifty or more according to the un and if we do not keep pace with globe with population growth would amount of food were producing then the world is going to be faced with serious threat of hunger so these are just a few examples of why africa needs to be on your rita. Yes so thinking about now. It's great but you're thinking about the future you need to remember that even before could hit five of the top. The top ten fastest growing economies in the world when africa. These are not really things. We've seen the mainstream media. Why i'm happy that chain. Is that the approach of the chinese in africa. Doo controversial is a big difference. This guy's coming here boots on the ground and they're dealing with the market. The previous relationship with africa has been to deal with africa's governments give african governments money for age and they develop africa unfulfilled years. It's never happened instead. It's helped enhance corruption. A sense of entitlement and dependency so most of the problems never get so because that's free money free money fluent in from europe money flowing in from north america so what people like us exist to do is to show that the people we should be voting. For with our money is the entrepreneur's they're the ones who have the incentive and the motivation to really solve africa's problems and guess what's global money starting to call me and i'm sure many ago minova listeners. On on on entrepreneur no stripe the big global player in in payments strike just acquired an african company. Niger company for two hundred million dollars. That's a major exit and it's stories like this that are starting to prove that africa is not a charity case. Africa is opportunity. The programs are trying to solve through eight. Actually need to be solved through entrepreneurship and the process. We create more jobs more wealth and greeted big happier world john. Let's talk about what you see as the most interesting opportunities that exist right now. I mean you talked about a lot of opportunities. I love how you really are hammering home. The fact that entrepreneurship is what is going to turn africa around and really bring that continents into the as we move forward into twenty twenty one and beyond but specifically what are the one or two most interesting and fascinating opportunities in the business world that you're seeing right now. The first interesting one is more or less. I talked about it earlier. In terms of africa's potential to produce food because right now we're looking for the next food basket of the world and one interesting that africa offers is the or what's we've we now know as superfoods so for example there's a grain that's grown in west africa. It's a green code for new now. This green is so rich in cultural significance for example when the tombs of ancient in jim ships are more or less opel excavated amongst other materials. Like honey. and things like that four new for new f- who is one of the greens that it that the ancient egyptians actually put in the the pyramids in the borough chambers of dead feroz. That's tell you how important it was back. Then this is like one of the longest growth one of the greens has been grown the longest in history almost five thousand years now. The reason why new is important is when you look at the american market and european market more or less developed world and you see how important health and wellness is this all about eighteen. Organic food. Gluten free food and things like that you announced that to see if like for new is actually superfood but in africa is grown by people in africa eating by people that i start to see what america has done with them a green assira like we know what which is more or less breakfast zero before quinoa became like a blockbuster serial in america it had the same profile as phone. You in south america. So what we're beginning to see. Is they celebrate to ship in. New york is named spear pm. He's now taken for neo his packaged. It's not just in its physical formats but in the narrative that used salads and last year. I think it's early this year. It got the national distribution across the united states in whole foods. You know to distribute this kind of food and new just one. I know listeners may be familiar with moringa which is another superfood. it grows in the wild in africa. We really take you for granted over yet. But then we've sent entrepreneurs coming here and repackage it into something that selling like a lot because it resonates resonates with the health and wellness movements the big trend going on in the

PUMA Sponsors Honor of Kings' KPL to Join Nike as Major Athletic Apparel Brands with Esports League Contracts

"Know. I have a weird fixation on the Athletic Apparel Brands and the work they do in Esports and I absolutely blame growing up in Beaverton, Oregon the home of Nike but while I'm only kind of biased to the swoosh, I'll admit that. I'm a fan of all the brands in Esports and especially Puma because they're led by Matt Shaw who happens to be one of my favorite people in all of these Sports on Sunday Puma announced a new major sponsorship Puma sponsoring ten cents king of league. If you haven't heard of the kpl the kpl is the top level of honor of Kings Esports, and I know you don't live in China on Earth Kings is called Arena of Valor in the West End is basically League of Legends mobile version including being published by 10 said now Riot games is actually in the process of creating wild Rift and official mobile version 4 league, but it likely won't take off in China because on Earth Kings is already huge and domination. Market, and it really really dominates that market as of March 2019 the game and brought in four point five billion dollars according to sensor Tower. I'll do something quick extrapolating math here. I found individual month's Revenue numbers from 20 20, which average I think this actually might be a conservative estimate another two hundred million dollars per month in revenue for honor of Kings. So if we take to walk 1 million as an average and multiply it by the 22-month separating March 2019 and January 2021, we get an additional four point four billion dollars in Revenue that would bring honor of Kings total halt to a point nine billion dollars since launch in 2015. That's a lot of money a lot of money this week the developer TV studios. Also announced another $154,000 would be invested in honor of Kings Esports with about six million of that going to prize pools for Puma. It's a huge win. The only other Esports League represented by Athletic Apparel birth. Like I said at the top is Nike and they have the League of Legends Pro league in China. And while the LPL is almost certainly the most important individual League contract and all of Esports honor of Kings K p.m. Is honestly not that far behind. It's just almost purely popular in China what Nike got with the LPL was also that International exposure that comes with worlds. Primarily Puma also offer deals with Cloud Nine and Gingy. I predicted the race for Esports assets from Nike Puma and Adidas would pick up and twenty Twenty-One and with Adidas already partnering with G2 and now Puma grabbing the kpl only in January. The race is definitely picking up steam already.

Hey andy cole. Thanks for being here. We're going to run through the specifics in a minute. But i want to start by asking. Why look at tech. Companies pricing moves this year. What are these decisions. Tell us about the company's cigarette question. I was curious about whether or not the economic downturn prompted by this very unique pandemic would prompt companies to consider new pricing models. Or in what ways would test traditional pricing schemes. And the reason why it's unique is because economic downturns sometimes forces prices down until in this case. No one was flying into some flight. Prices went down some airlines offered. Buy one get two free seats deals. But in other cases prices went up because grocery van was higher because supply chains were in disarray. Because operational costs were higher for places like restaurants so is really interesting. Look at how companies are reacting. To this unique time i think we often think about economics and pricing models as firm that nothing is new and that there are no real experiments and pricing. But the truth is when there is a moment like this one. Nobody really knows how consumers are going to react. And so in a way a lot of these companies conducting experiments and we saw a lot of companies. Take some different approaches to that. So let's run through some of the examples we saw and we'll start with entertainment reminded us how hollywood adjust in the world of closed movie theaters. Obviously it was a huge hit. Two movie theater industry because being locked in a closed room for two hours isn't exactly cove friendly disney to interesting approach. It launched disney plus very recently and that was probably a saving grace for the company because there are lots of areas of the company that were not doing well like parks for example and mulan was. One of its biggest blockbusters this year to two hundred million dollar. Movie is the remake of a classic. A favorite of mine and they decided instead of releasing it exclusively in theaters which is normal to charge thirty dollars for early access to milan with called premier access and it was an interesting move because they were going to charge thirty dollars which is a pretty high price for streaming service as an add on to what you're already paying which is six ninety nine month for disney plus and offer that early access for three months and then make mulan apart of the larger library in december for centrally free included near subscription. So kind of just charging the price that it would cost to go see the movie at the theater but from your couch now. Milan might be a bit of an anomaly. Because of a number of factors including concerns over where the movie was filmed which was in a part of china where the government has been accused of committing some human rights abuses but batted mind. How was milan received the gamble. Pay off it fell flat. Most analysts say because of two reasons one is because there was a lot of controversy around the filming location. The ceo admitted this himself. And the second reason is that the price is really high and instead of framing the premier access price as discount for disney plus subscribers so they could have charged forty dollars for non-subscribers and thirty or twenty five dollars for subscribers to make feel like. You're getting something out of it. You know a deal. The church this premium price too subscribers. So milan didn't quite work out. It sounds like but is this something that streaming services and entertainment more. Broadly make testing. Interestingly disney's biggest rival one of disney's biggest rivals warnermedia decided to release. Its entire twenty. Twenty one slate of films included with hbo. Max not opting for the premiere pricing model and disney's next release which is pixar soul will be included in the disney plus subscription and not as premier. Add on. so you know that sort of indicates that move london. Do super well for disney. But i do suspect that if we are staying away from movie theaters well into twenty one well into twenty twenty two that they will try this again for another blockbuster release maybe with a lower price. Got it okay. So let's move on to apple. They released ton of new products this year and played on what you have dubbed the. Goldilocks effect. Can you tell us what that means. Goldilocks refers to a good better best pricing strategy. So this means you get three options or three buckets of options that represent sort of like the budget the mid tier and then the expensive model for those who have a very high willingness to pave the latest and greatest features apple for a long time has released new models one or two and then discounted previous models older models to sort of represent that good better best strategy so the budget option was always like last year's iphone this year. They released a record number of new iphone models so five in total and actually the budget option is a new phone. That was released this year. So i think what that says about apple said moving forward. They want their entire lineup their new lineup to represent more pricing tiers to appeal to wider swath of people so even those who are willing to spend just a couple hundred bucks at a phone can feel like they're getting a new iphone sort of expanding their addressable market. And as you mentioned. This is a tactic that apple has used since long before the pandemic but is there a reason sort of doubling down on this in a year like this one. Yeah you know. One of the pricing consultants. I talked to says that more pricing tiers kind of a protective measure for some companies apple is a premium brand so they can get away with selling a multi thousand dollar iphone in during an economic downturn but the lower end iphone. se. That's just a couple of hundred bucks you know. Three three between the four hundred bucks allows them to keep the customer that has a tighter budget in their brand. And hopefully that person will upgrade to a more expensive iphone in the future got it and in a similar pricing move. The fitness company peleton introduced another more expensive stationery bike and lowered the price of the existing model by about three hundred fifty dollars. So what fa logic with this move. Eso not exactly good better best because two tiered pricing system. A lot of economists called this committee classic price discrimination where someone who has ohi willingness to pay more features will pay for the very expensive two thousand four hundred ninety five dollar by plus with all the bells and whistles and those are just starting to get into a stationary bike gang but really wanna peleton are willing to pay the eighteen ninety-five price. This one research paper. That i discussed in the peace looked at this williams sonoma case where two hundred seventy five dollar. Red baking appliance wasn't selling at all and then williams sonoma a more expensive model and then the cheaper model. She sales doubled. So you know. Peleton may have been drying from this classic case here we. We don't have exact numbers on its performance but in earnings calls peleton was very bullish on. It's cheaper model and said that it would continue to be its bestselling bike but what happened is during the pandemic people were more willing to pay for premium equipment because it was replacing their gym membership. And so wait times for this. Newer by plus are now up to ten weeks and wait times for the cheaper bike are know almost half that that time so it seems like maybe peleton should have priced. They're more expensive by maybe even higher or maybe they're less expensive lake even more affordable. So i think that brings us to the fourth big pricing strategy. We saw which is this trend of companies dropping walls and generally making more of their product or service accessible for free. You just right into some of what we saw there. Yes so early. On in the pandemic a lot of companies were responding to this very sudden turn towards work from home and being online and not really being able to communicate with with other people in person so zoom for example lifted their forty minute limit for k. Through twelve educators eighteen other service providers lifted data caps. Comcast made its network of xfinity Wifi access points free for everyone. You don't need comcast subscription. The list goes on and on what they're sort of taking advantage of is the fact that free is great advertising and free something really miraculous to our brains. Were very persuaded by zero dollars. There is this very famous study of students who had the choice between a one set. Hershey's kiss or twenty six cents lynch truffle and when given that choice most students picked the lynch truffle but when the researchers lowered the price of the hershey's kiss to free and the lynn truffle to just one cent below. Even at the price difference was the same. Most students opted for the free. Hershey's kiss so free has a very strong pull on our psyche and these companies. Think that in offering free services they spread goodwill but they also increase the amount of people who are using their service and the thinking is that potentially those people will pay for other things in the long term. so nike is a good example of this. They made their are trading club app. Free the premium subscription cost some amount of money to be able to work out with their very chiseled very good-looking trainers and These trainers are wearing like clothing. And there's a short cut in the app to buy nike apparel and so in making the free They're able to sell more naked goods so they're actually making it free permanently. Yes that nike move definitely worked on me but i wonder aside from that. What is the business case for this option. I think i'm still a free user of zoom for instance which is not making them any money. As far as i know we have seen some indications at this early working for some companies zoom was extremely well positioned to do well this year but in making their service free they got more people acquainted with the service and they started rolling out new products like this new pricing page for people like trainers to charge for zoom sessions. And so i think if you're used to using a service you're more willing to hand over your credit card to that service and their revenue shot up. You know something like over three hundred percent this year year over year that may have something to do with the fact that zoom was like the premier video conferencing tool that we all leaned on but also has to do with the fact that they have a really robust free tier that allows most people to use the service without paying for for extra stuff finally we have subscription model and it sounds like the grocery delivery market is a good example of this. Yeah so home. Delivery exploded this year. It allowed people to stay away from grocery stores which all of a sudden became dangerous activity and Walmart really capitalized on this moment by offering a subscription service It's called walmart. Plus and it includes free unlimited delivery from local stores. The thinking is that it pays for itself interest deliveries walmart says. What's interesting about this example. Is that you know. Walmart really rushed this program out and so they had very scant perks and the program cost ten dollars a so that easiest comparison the laziest comparison is is tames on prime which on top of free unlimited delivery offers you know this giant entertainment bundle free photo storage etc etc until i think it was is hard for people to justify the price between walmart plus and amazon amazon prime. But we don't have numbers for walmart plus yet and it may very well have been a success and walmart plus and amazon prime aim to do the same thing which is try to make walmart or amazon the default shopping choice in her mind and i think walmart plus is a good way for walmart to become more salient in people's minds. And let's just break that down a little bit more. How does the subscription model actually work to create sort of a stickier relationship with consumers. Yeah other examples are dash pass. Switches door dashes new membership tier which lowers delivery and service costs for its customers. These companies are trying to keep switching costs high. So you want to feel like the more you use this service. The more you safe if you delivery cost three dollars typically for every order the more orders you deliver the more you squeeze out of that thirteen dollars. A month subscription so they're trying switching costs high and trying to increase the willingness of customers to buy without thinking are those are the five strategies we said at the beginning that this is sort of a big experiment. So what are the takeaways here. Are there certain hypotheses that are clear winners and losers will i. I think one of the the clear winners is definitely more pricing options for customers. That said can self select into whatever tier. they're most comfortable. Paying and that maybe premium pricing wasn't the right move but the truth is this pandemic is to go on for several more months or potentially another year and Pricing changes all the time and in the course of my reporting the story had to change multiple times because the prices kept changing perks. Kept being added onto bundles into it. Seems like companies are still trying to figure this whole thing out as we all are very enough all right. Our personal tech columnist nicole new.

Gig workers weigh in on Prop 22 passing

"Voters approved proposition twenty two a ballot measure that says drivers for apps like uber. Lift and instacart will remain independent contractors not employees. Those companies spent nearly two hundred million dollars on a marketing campaign supporting prop twenty two the campaign ads like this one from lift said the measure would actually be good for workers because it comes with a minimum wage and health care benefits for some but if drivers are forced to become employees up to ninety percent of at been striving jobs could disappear to be clear. That's because the gig companies wouldn't hire all those drivers gig drivers in california and around. The country have mixed views on the law. We talked to some of them. Prop twenty two. I voted for. Because i don't want to be an employee doing it as an independent contractor. Make my own hours work when i want to work. I'm glad it wasn't proved one of the best thing about. This is the flexibility of it. And it would've taken away a lot of those like ps. What is con- front of me doing the thing that they said. Do you like having your independence in your ability to choose. your own. Ships were despite if they were required to classify his employees. It doesn't mean you couldn't choose your own chips it's a fallacy. I wish that we could bring both sides to the table. You know because of were treated like employees or we're not paid like employees. Would it be nice for them to set. Maybe a 401k or retirement plan sure but i wasn't really contributing to that in my other job from this outcome. Maybe they are guaranteeing that hey no matter what you're gonna make so much money per rider per hour. Whatever however they figure it out he is going on for so long without any parameters rules any laws and it's just gotten out of hand. You know i i will not get up and start my car for less than twenty dollars. I won't i live in las vegas where it can get to be one hundred and twenty degrees and they want me to go in and shop for somebody and drive you know say five miles and they wanna pay me seven dollars for that. It's like no. I mean no but you know what somebody will. And that's the thing somebody will and they know that so. They don't have to pay more sick. Leave that one would be nice You know. I'm not going to kill myself if i don't get it. And my independence is a lot more than that. That was karen rinky in san antonio. Also sharon going in las vegas mike cole vard in fresno california an evan marquette in los angeles a note on pay prop twenty two requires companies to pay drivers at least one hundred twenty percent of minimum wage. Which in california. In two thousand twenty one would be over fifteen dollars an hour but a study from uc. Berkley says. that number doesn't count for a lot of things. Workers won't be paid for the time they spend driving around in between passengers or reimbursed for things like gas the study says once you add in those and other costs the wage floor would be over five dollars an hour

College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court

"Myron medcalf has been covering college basketball for espn for nearly a decade. So my excitement. I should admit comes from a place of utter ignorance because after eight months of this pandemic after a cancellation of march madness. I have literally no idea myron what to expect from college basketball. At all this season in terms of the virus in terms of what's happening on the floor. All i really know right now. Is that both duke. And arizona announced yesterday that they are postponing their opening games. Because of covid and tennessee's rick. Barnes got diagnosed with corona virus. So let's just begin with tip off tomorrow. What's this all going to look like. Why i think that's the million dollar question college basketball a lot like college football. Most of the games are scheduled to be played obviously cove. It was a challenge for college football. I think for college basketball. That'd be magnified by about ten because you have more than three hundred team that are going to try to kick this season off. So i think everybody's just crossing their fingers and hoping for the best and not knowing what the head is on the theme of the three hundred teams. All kind of spinning. This roulette wheel is a lot to process. What are the protocols. Like the health protocols teams employers going to try to abide by this season. I think that's another important question and it's difficult to answer in that. There are so many different protocols by state by county depending on what's conference iran. I mean you're talking to thirty two different conferences. I'll give you an example. The american athletic conference. They're going to test three days per week during the season can't do a consecutive days. That's what ended up like guidelines. Recommend however at temple abide by the city of philadelphia's protocols which say they have to test seven days before competition every single day so you have even within conferences different rules and regulations. I've talked to athletic directors and california who are telling me that they still have to submit plans to their local authorities to get approval to compete this season. Forget host the team. Forget any of the other details just to be able to get back on the floor so you got see a lot of chaos unfold in the coming months so you are very clearly a healthcare reporter on top of being a college basketball reporter so myron explained to me what is happening in these. Pseudo bubbles where regular season games are gonna take place. One of them is an eleven day. Event starts tomorrow called bubble ville. Which has real dr seuss fives from what i can tell. What exactly is bubble ville. Well we're gonna find out but it's basically a bunch of teams all in one side of the megan sun in connecticut. Where the idea is you have everybody. At one location. There will be testing measures. Extreme testing measures with the goal being the kind of emulate. What you saw with the nba bobble on a on a somewhat smaller scale. They don't have the two hundred million dollars that the nba spent. Two resources are different. But i think their attempt is to mimic that. And when you're there there will be security in these hotels making sure that people are following protocols and then there will be specific places that you can and can't go. The challenge is going to be. Can you do that for dozens and dozens of teams and make sure that everybody's following the rules we saw the nba and the resources they put into that. It's a different different level. I think with college basketball in an attempt to pull this off for the next couple of weeks there are certainly some challenges attached to that. And there's already issues at bubble ville right. I mean the news baylor and some other schools have already pulled out of this tournament. Florida kobe issues. They pull out Baylor scott drew head coach. Their test positive announces that yesterday they pull out and then arizona state which was scheduled to play. Baylor in bubble veal. Says you know what we're not comfortable so you already have teams that have been moving things around an idea that i think we'll see throughout the season. How can you play college basketball with three hundred plus teams unless there is some sort of pseudo bubble environment

"two hundred million dollars" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW

"It's amazing to watch from last Sunday night when there was riding everywhere now there's minimal Rietberg quite a bit of pro testing continues and it's all part of the efforts to shift blame to blame others in the democratic party for their failures please let me explain what shop political party has been in charge of American cities at least for the last fifty to one hundred years or so that would be the Democratic Party so the Democratic Party have been experts perfected the ability to be both responsible for a problem and at the same time claim to be the solution to that same problem so I'm this Sunday morning Sunday afternoon I watched repeated interviews with Meira Lori Lightfoot a Chicago and Muriel Bowser of DC and the plaza in New York City and Jacob fry Minneapolis that guy's a real trouble Keisha lance bottoms of Atlanta Mike Duggan of Detroit and every time whether it's wolf Blitzer MSNBC joy Reid whatever might be the question is a given that all the police divisions in those cities are filled with institutional racist that there's institutional racism in every major cities police department in this country along with the education system at center they're all filled with racists I'm waiting I I drop dead if wolf Blitzer would say to mayor Eric Garcetti you're in your party have been in charge of Los Angeles for the last twenty five years since the Rodney king riots and and before that many years before that and as far as the eye can see they'll be no Republicans dominating California politics for years if not decades to come I'm waiting for wolf Blitzer to say mayor Garcetti of Los Angeles who are the racist and the LAPD that cause the city to pay out two hundred million dollars every year in claims against the the LAPD for brutal behavior generally at the hands of minorities who are the racist is your set is your chief of police races about the fire department chief is not person races about Lori Lightfoot the merits Chicago your party is controlled the city Chicago now for ninety four years if there is indeed institutional racism and the city of Chicago police department Lightfoot why do you keep a porting races to run the Chicago police division because obviously if you don't know what you're doing or second let you know exactly what you're doing and you want racism was someone as mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington DC who's in a fracas with trump it appears every day because Washington DC police department it is rampant with crooks and racist according to you institutionally racist why haven't you cry do the institutions that you're in charge of helping those in charge of institutions claim there's racism institutionally racist but they're the ones in charge so simultaneously they called the problems they complain but they are the solution and that somehow trump has been there were three and a half years is responsible for the collapse of inner cities when the Democrats have been in charge you might say the same thing about the public education Sean Hannity on a regular basis talks about the failure of NY New York City schools Los Angeles county schools Chicago Detroit Austin whatever city it is controlled by Democrats in fact the longer Liberal Democrats control the city's educational institutions the worst may become as judged by testing standards there was one point I think in February or March where there wasn't one child in the fourth or eighth grade and Detroit public schools reading and computing at the correct math and reading efficiency levels anywhere in the city of Detroit the tens of thousands of kids it's completely utterly dysfunctional so when mayor Mike Duggan comes on with someone say to him since you're in charge of the city of Detroit and your party's been in charge for at least sixty years do you hire racist on purpose to run these institutions or is your party completely in charge where are Republican principles they don't exist no well they exist for the foreseeable future it goes on and on and on and why I do not believe that the Democrats themselves are racist one may disagree with that but I don't think Liberal Democrats are what what day it does mean is that they have no idea how to correct the problems that they have calls the worst things that can happen to a liberal city as for the Democratic Party controller for anywhere from fifty to one hundred years the most segregated schools they are in liberal states in California cities poor families often can be found living on the streets in fact in blue state California about half the homeless population the country is in one county which is Los Angeles county George Floyd was killed the city mayor in that city Minneapolis of course is a Democrat the only member of the city council that is not a Democrat is a member of the Green Party most of them are gonna take pride in being liberal fact I watch the president on fox Amazon as CNN this afternoon being interviewed and she was proud of talking about disbanding the Minneapolis police department it's incredible no where else in America these problems are not new they're all and the Democrats like a matador keeps putting the Cape out then pulling it back and blaming someone else for their failures in Minneapolis in the last eight years there's been almost three thousand complaints against Minneapolis police filed by citizens in Los Angeles every year they pay out about about two hundred million dollars in LAPD completely control of that Democratic Party I'm my view would be a big mistake to thank the democratic run cities are filled with racist they're not racists what they do is they have no no prescription to solve the problems their policies have cost one of a fire bad cops of which one percent of the cops are bad what they lose the support of the police union one if they fire bad teachers the Democrats in Atlanta San Francisco Chicago Cleveland Cincinnati one of the fire bad teachers they lose the backing and support of the teachers union one of the great low income housing in neighborhoods that have good schools or give poor kids vouchers so they can attend other schools their way out of the hole in which you find yourself if you're a black kid like in Detroit is a voucher that allows you to go thirty miles away to a good school they would lose the financial support from rich liberals who don't want to send their kids to school with the children kids of all poor a poor families so the party in charge of poverty is blaming trump and their mouthpieces and the mainstream media are blaming everyone but the Democrats were completely in charge it's a damn thing I've ever seen it's unbelievable and now so much has failed to get trump whether was the Russian collusion delusion Muller and Rosenstein that's completely fell apart when that fell apart and Robert Miller proved himself to be not up to the job they could have one on your telephone call the president had with the new Ukrainian president and the telephone call serve the basis of what an impeachment and covert nineteen was exploded into a pandemic when in most parts of the country it is not a pandemic it is not a pandemic except in the blue states and the red states it is not a pandemic hasn't been never will be but the media acted as if there was enough response from trump and when that didn't seem to have some traction George Floyd murdered by rogue cops who should be convicted of murder as the whole things now been hijacked debate trump everything else is failed now they go back to playing the race card was there experts are doing if there is racism all over major institutions in America whether it's Hollywood dominated by the Democrats big city newspapers democratic dominated by liberals and Democrats about police departments in the major cities all Democrats about the educational system all Democrats so the party in charge of the failed results quickly blame someone else and the media does even ask how's it possible that the mayor of Minneapolis Jacob fry good actually preside over a racist institution because the Minneapolis police department in control of a black man who is suing Minneapolis police for race discrimination then you got the job as the police chief and he was in charge when George Floyd was murdered without question murdered by officer Derek Jarman industry bodies one of whom had been on the job for exactly one shift it was a second shift so Derek shaman who was a trainer with the division about twenty years murdered and tortured to death George Floyd under of course Democrats practically every noted murder of a black man in America has been democratically controlled cities in which they've controlled it nuts for a few months or a few years but for decades are up to a century the last time there is a Republican mayor and Atlanta was a hundred fifty years ago yes the Atlanta mayor complains about institutional racism in Atlanta that her party controls and is controlled for hundred fifty years not be Keisha lance bottoms how is it possible you can complain about racism in an institution that you're in charge of make changes do it I live in Cincinnati this afternoon there was a March by the Cincinnati federation of teachers there's almost forty thousand kids and the Cincinnati public schools practically every poll indicates it's an academic emergency and I don't blame the teachers because the teachers do the best they can but if there's racism institutional racism and CPD the Democrats have controlled that for over half a century responsible for all the educational curriculum the hiring and firing of all the teachers which is damn near impossible to do this before the teachers and the board of education is not going to get the support of the teachers union so they'll fire the bad teachers and one might AS to the mayor Jacob fry it appeared that the I think the murderer Derrick shelving and repeated eighteen charges against them police brutality and a no point was a significantly disciplined for doing that because the mayor wants the support of the place you so the unions give the Democrats money the institutions in those cities collapse in when they collapsed they quickly blame someone else for their failure it's wonderful to watch now the drudge report says tonight the bush and Romney we're not support trump internal polls are collapsing the board book is out in weeks and all the generals have come out against trump lined up one after another and in the meantime on Friday the market the nasdaq reached all time high yes and P. is close and the Dow Jones is a little bit lower less of its all time high why I have no clue I've been experts tell me they have no clue but think about liberal mayors and racial politics almost every major city governed by Democrats usually very Liberal Democrats have had the writing and the pro testing because and then they blame quickly someone else for the policy failures and black Americans in those cities have suffered because the public policies in these cities they've adopted have not worked and they will never work so quickly blame someone else and the black folks in the cities especially black females are the most loyal supporters supporters of the Democratic Party imaginable so things are so bad institutional and all the cities what a black folks keep voting for the same party every election by more than ninety percent why.

"A two hundred million dollar jackpot prompting USA today to then wonder whether they should take the money in a lump sum or in payouts over thirty years what would you guys say to this and any other lottery winner well a lot of it is and how well they've handled money over the years because it's nice to have full control over a lump sum but some folks might decide that everyone they know needs a new house in a new car and maybe it is short while they would be broke you know and so maybe that wouldn't be the best for them to to come into that amount of fortune and we deal with this not with those kind of numbers from a lottery winning but just maybe a week and a half ago someone came in and they are the CEO of a rather large company here locally and they said you know I can either take this pension of about seventy five hundred dollars per month or have a one point eight million dollar pension lump sum now the good news was that they had saved almost six million dollars A. had a net worth of about six million dollars rather them and so it I wasn't worried at all about them squandering the one point eight million dollars I said so which is more important you the security of knowing that those paychecks are gonna come every single month as long as you and your wife live or knowing that that you can manage this wisely and take a dependable income stream and then whatever's left would then go to your kids later they said well for me I want the lump sum I said well I think in a position to be able to afford to do that so I was in agreement yes the love son made perfect sense for them and now we're talking about a strategy to get that lump sum over to Roth IRA's overtime so that down the road it can be tax free to their heirs sometimes people come into a lump sum to with an inheritance it could be a pension these are all questions that Greg and Kristen are used to as the owners of legacy retirement group as folks who have worked as a family to help so many other families here in central Ohio retire with their version of a winning retirement the best way to get this insight is to come in and sit down with them that first appointment about an hour getting to know each other talking about the numbers mainly finding out what your goals are when you leave Greg and Chris and take that information and spend six hours or more as a team completing a portfolio X. ray a thorough risk returning fee analysis of every investment dollar that you have a before an after tax analysis making sure that you got an arm D. strategy stress testing everything for inflation creating a personalized social security action plan Greg and Kristen are here to help you make sure that your spending plan income plan and legacy plan.

"In Google is having to pay according to published reports two hundred million dollars in fines for invading the privacy of children watching children's content. and this is ridiculous. there hi there an FTC investigation found that you two ways collecting data on young children. and this is this is Google that owns this there's no there's no explanation that would make sense there's no excuse for this. and I just don't know that two hundred million dollars for a company the size of Google is any deterrence at all. in terms of getting them to change their behavior but I hope just because it's the right thing to do they Google stops spying on children using IT services. Dave is with us on the card our show hi David. I want to turn on speaking with you today great to have you here and we're gonna talk about another Google service aren't. yes we are tell me well. I'm on a major Kerrier but it's on the. all I can say is inside the house it does not work too well it never has and even though we're pretty close to self cell tower so I was thinking about slipping you will fly and I know you did a great review on it I just want to know if there's any downside to switch into Google fly. if you can think of the only downside with Google fight is if you're a heavy consumer of data. where you would normally Max out every month you end up with a monthly bill remind me is eighty a month. Lakers right caps so if you are a massive consumer of data. AT puts you above the various discount choices on the market but if you use a more limited amount of data is you pay only metered for what you use to you hit that eighty dollar cap most people end up with a monthly bill somewhere in the thirties watch rate and that's not what I'm paying right now thirty five plus tax thirty seven sixty and the coverage with Google fi is excellent you know people are seem who try it and use it seem to really like both the bills and the quality of the coverage especially if you travel at all internationally. Google five is the best choice out there what's good news I do have one question sure so if you're inside the house if you have wifi it will switch the wifi calling automatically yes is that correct yeah so the whole idea of Google fi is that eighty percent of the time we're on trusted wifi typically at home or at work right and so the it works off the backbone of the wifi you have where we spend most of our time which is home or work and ran only buys capacity from multiple cell phone carriers when you're away from your home right and only thing I saw was the only downside might be. one might be a little bit pricier work you get a a prepaid now you know no contract phone you can get one for like thirty nine this two run you may be ninety nine or a hundred forty nine dollars something like that when you can run it way up on Google follow because you can go with the latest greatest phones and pay a ton of money for a phone Blake a lot of people have tried Google fight and dumped it and then they have a phone they don't want anymore and so on eBay a lot of times you'll find use phones there are eligible to be activated on Google fi and get a real deal on our money back well it sounds like great news to me thank you returned from the international space station your your color from earlier I couldn't hear at all that's fun descended and how did you deal with the A.

"You know, what it is? Salary cap is almost two hundred million dollars. You know what I mean? So right, people talked about us being strapped have they're not strap by the teams can make money to fill. The eagles were over the salary cap heading into free agency, and they had trouble making room to make moves -nificant move. I mean, it's really hard to get you know, strapped against the cap. There's not enough money for teams spend just look at the money. They're having out of rage overpaying nicer overpaying. No, they're not. That's what the market is on free agency. Because there's only so many really good players, and it really good players get paid as great players and free agency. Because of that reason so teams 'cause then say we made a mistake we can eat the money, and we can move on them. We'll be we'll be fine. It's not totally prohibitive as maybe it was, you know, ten years ago Jordan where do the giants fans right now get their hope for this season. They have saquon Barkley to watch. I mean, I I don't know what else value this point. Right. It's pretty clear that this is a rebuild. Look at look at the talent little on their defense right now. Right. They're going into this with a thirty eight year old quarterback that most seems to be in agreement is below average on the downside of his career. So I mean, this isn't going to be a great team this year, you could be happy as a giants fan. I think in that they finally decided to stop straddling the line and saying we're gonna rebuild or reconstruct Iraq after redo whatever you wanna call it on the fly because at least they settled on an angle and now they're fully committed to it and saying all right? We're going to go in that direction. Although you could look at Vernon trait. Now got your head a little bit be like why does it take back the guy who's twenty years old with that makes one of the top bay? Guard wouldn't they just take draft picks and money at that point? So I I don't wanna temper giant fan for light opportunity here look at this in a positive way. But yeah, I think that's the only thing that giant fans can take right now is that..

Maybe there's value added reseller sales. Both of those solutions getting two hundred million dollars requires lots of different of strategies like that who came up with that. You're the person who said you weren't like super familiar with funnels at the time. Who is a person who who you tapped in the early days to do this type of marketing so one of the benefits. I really had it was Renault and Jack offers Jack was president very business salads, right still. There's president today were CTO as technical I could actually will live in a little bit of both both areas. So it was very easy to make decisions enable people and get those things going out. I'll be honest. I mean, it's it was never a awhile today. We're going to do x y and z because that's the obvious thing to do. Everybody agrees. Right there spoke people today have different views like literally, I was at a security conference in people was ever give me advice about you know, how necessary could be used to do more ex-. Right. So it's that popular it's not not very clear about how the best way of going about it. But it got creating a public company called tenable is not a bad start. Right. And Jack as a person with business development partnership experie-. Was the person who would figure out we need to do. Webinars with our vendors. We need to form relationships. We need to experiment. We've been doing that. We would do a lot of different convert. It was always joint conversation. Would we only what's working what's not working? If you think about it. I mean, we were able to do some major things such as take necessary source do it in a manner that was very professional very, well communicated, and that's how we approach that. Now when we decided to do certain conferences, and we were unhappy with the performance or we were very happy with performance. We had those conversations it was I I wish I could tell you that every day was two hundred percent growth in three hundred percent happiness. But the reality is that you have to have given take compensation. What was one of the unhappier moments? File I've done is talked about rainbows in unicorns. What was unhappy moment? I think if I think if tenable had any weakness, we didn't we didn't switch out people who weren't working MAs quickly as we should. And I that's my foul.

Ten first of all I love you guys had the domain some point you bought tenable dot com. But that was Jack Jack buying we used to have tenable security. Okay. And the problem with that is tenable securities is exactly an executive protection company out of Cleveland, Ohio, so occasionally we'll get calls.

"Musical performances was actually more about like the films themselves as opposed to a host. If the academy decided not to do a host any more. I think I'm okay with that. Let me go back to you travel. Anderson on this. We. Disappointed. The Kevin Hart was not the host. And you must have been fairly elated about Regina king because she won for best. Supporting actress in if Bill street could talk, and I know you did an extensive interview with her. Yeah. You know, regarding the the the whole situation, I think we actually fared better not having a host the pace of the show seemed to feel a lot better. I by our too. I didn't feel like I was in our four. And I think that's a great feeling that you you want your audience to have it seemed to move quickly to me without having somebody come out and do their obligatory stick, and and try to laugh and reflect on what's going on. I am glad that you know, Kevin Hart stepped down in the whole hubbub only because I feel like we would have still been talking about it this whole conversation probably would have been about did he redeem himself from that regarding Regina king. I am. So glad that she's finally getting hurt. Do she has been in this industry for over thirty some odd years doing a lot of background work really a lot of supporting work, really? And while she still has a supporting role in if Beale street could talk I think we really got a chance or rather. I'd say. I think the broader audience got a chance to finally see how fabulous and amazing. She is. And I think her speech showed that and hopefully we get to see her in more weighty more full roles to calm and travel. Would you have liked to have seen I presume Black Panther or black klansman as the winner of the best? Phil Black Panther was my pick only because I feel like we're at a point in the industry where the Oscars who wins the top Oscars sits should signal where we wanna go. And I think Black Panther represented a landmark and represents a landmark moment in our industry, where we see, you know, this film that centers on a uniquely black Africa feature Ristic experience being one of the top grossing movies ever. And it really kind of having a place in the culture, not only now, but for years to come. I think we'll look back on the Oscars of last night in ten fifteen twenty years, and we'll say that we got it wrong with green book. Yeah. I was. Interested in reading some of your comments about our own homeboy hair. Ryan Kugler Oakland native who made fruitvale station, which many people here in the bay. Remember, and you pointed out that that had a million dollar budget, whereas creed which he did afterward had a forty million dollar budget and Black Panther two hundred million dollar budget. Quite quite a difference in those expenses in terms of the budgets. Some winners used the moment to call attention to political and social issues, and I wanted to get into that with our three critics we're talking with travel Anderson. Claudia Puig and Tim, Grayson. And we're going to talk with you and bring you into this many thoughts about winners and losers. You know, I always hate to use word snub about the Oscars. But there were those concerns especially with boots Riley sorry to bother you again. Local Oakland native who made a film that got a good deal the tension, but didn't make it into the best film categories. And you may want to comment on what didn't make it or would didn't win as well as the winners. One of the. Big winners was of course, Alfonso Koran. Here's the accepting the best directing award for Roma. I went to faint academy for recognizing a film center around an indigenous woman, one of the seventy million mystic workers in the world without works. With a work writes a character that historically have relegated in the background in seen him as artiste. Our job is to look where others don't these responsibility. Because much more important in fans when we are being encouraged look away, well that Claudia Puig was one of the more political moments. And there were few of them as there always are at the Oscars, but there weren't necessarily as many I mean or of a different vintage when. For example, the award was accepted by Rami Markle for lobby Malik excuse me for blaming rhapsody. He said something about being an immigrant in about the portrayal of Freddie, Mercury is a gay man and so forth, but it was more muted than it's been in the past. In other words, long soliloquy about some political statement of that sort. Now, they weren't long soliloquies. But I thought they were very human moments. I loved the diversity of what my colleagues have been talking about. I feel exactly the same. I think that I loved hearing foreign languages spoken. And we heard Spanish spoken by Afonso. Glad on by yoga Luna. I think have you ever buy them even to I love. Hearing Sosa spoken by Trevor Noah, I you know, that's never happened before I loved that Rummy Malik spoke of being a first generation American and being a son of immigrants. I mean when you think about that of the four acting winners three where people of color, Regina king. Her Sean Lee, Ann Romney Malik. Then you have quite on, you know, and that film, the fact that it won the best foreign language film was huge for Mexico. Mexico has never won a foreign language film. Oscar, which is kind of shocking when you think about you think maybe now though the wall pay for the wall. We're not even to go there. There were a few comments about, you know, not, you know, tearing down walls and building bridges and thank goodness for that. What about John Lewis coming out with green book and being coming out centerstage talking about how it affected him? Yeah. I think he's, you know, he's a wonderful spokesperson for that era. And you know, as a civil rights hero. It's wonderful always to hear from him. And I'm sure it spoke to him because of you know, being up close and personal with all of what he went through. So it's always wonderful to hear from him. Well, it's not your parents or grandparents Oscars anymore. No, I never saw Jack Nicholson, in fact, I haven't seen him in the last few Oscars. No, Billy, crystal, a very different kind of Oscars, especially in terms of the diversity as you said Claudia and go back to you Tim Gershon on what was one of the biggest surprises of the evening. And that was a Livia Coleman getting an Oscar. Let's hear my cancer watching. Well, if you're not then we'll kind of well done. This is not going to happen again..

"Nominating? Petitions can we get that done? I think she'd be a wonderful candidate. Maybe with Elizabeth Warren who wants to seize the assets of the so-called rich. I have income, but I'm not rich. Dan, Snyder is a clown in a full. He's an idiot owner of the Washington Redskins, but he had sufficient resources to buy a one hundred million dollar yacht that I could never get close to buying no probably even ride on one hundred million dollars for a yacht. And she's all angry about Dan Snyder or the Washington Redskins personally buying a yacht for one hundred million dollars. I ask you this question. One hundred million dollars. Did he take that cash? Put it into a field light it up like a bonfire and blow it into the atmosphere or did he use the one hundred million dollars to pay literally hundreds of middle class, Americans, butchers and bakers candlestick makers carpenters, plumbers electricians and dry Waller's to put his yacht together. How many steelworkers that is the way the middle class works because those with money spended evil, Bill Gates and Melinda gates at the end of their days or take literally. Hundreds of billions of dollars and use that on numerous charitable causes to alleviate pain and suffering all around the world. So how's it wrong? If Dan Snyder or Bill Gates or Warren Buffett, not his character do so nonetheless, which say I want to buy a house for two hundred million dollars. I want to have the most beautiful house in the world. Some dude some billionaire New York City, but a pen for two hundred and forty five million now who built that penthouse. We're that money go. In wanna know pockets of steelworkers cement, Masons, pockets of electricity and plumbers and dry Waller's and their their if somebody's rich enough to buy a jet. There's a multi billion billion dollar industry in America of those who by private jets. I've flown on Hannity's private jet who built that private jet. Whole bunch of middle class Americans make their living out a building yachts and boats and private jets. God bless them. But Hello, Elizabeth Warren wants to eliminate all those jobs. She wants his middle class Americans to go on public assistance. Who builds a yacht all bunch of middle class rich, people don't build them and poor people. Don't build them middle class Americans build yachts when you buy fancy closer, drink fancy wine. Get a fancier hundred dollar steak that money goes into the pockets of barbeques servers waiters wine captains, that's how those people make a living. Hardly anyone makes a living from catering to the economic needs of the poor doesn't work that way. Walmart is successful because it supplies middle class Americans. Good products at good prices, and they succeed famously because of that fact and one a WalMart. Rich airs all die. Those monies will be distributed either to the federal government or to charitable organizations. What the hell's wrong with that? The government does a better job than private individuals. I don't think so I really don't think. So I live in Cincinnati, Ohio, a rich guy a good man named Carl Linder is spending five hundred million dollars to build a brand new stadium and bring an MLS franchises. Cincinnati five hundred million Danny glazed where does that money? Go. Is it a bonfire somewhere? Hell, no. Hell no the money goes into those who build a beautiful brand new stadium middle class Americans. That's where the money goes. Can you smell when I'm cooking? What a stadium is built at some high expense. When the LA Rams are building their fancy stadium. I think it's like two billion dollars and whose pockets does the two billion dollars flow. And if somebody didn't have two billion dollars is it a bar putting his pocket collateralized that stadium will not be built in Los Angeles for the Rams and the chargers that two billion dollars goes into the pockets of middle class Americans. Why can't Elizabeth Warren figure this out? She thinks their assets should be seized. Cossio Cortes thinks no one should make ten million dollars a year. If you make ten million dollars a year you pay effective tax rate of about twenty five percent. That means the federal government and state government or the partners in those individuals. And when you buy expensive homes like in Naples, Florida for five or ten million dollars. There's a one percent tax levied on this houses every year. The money goes to government. It is a shell game. Played by the radical left to convince you that wealth in the formation of wealth is evil, and it is not I will never be wealthy. But I understand I have some wealthy friends. And I see them spent lots of money and those who benefit are overwhelmingly middle class Americans who need that money to work to work. Somebody New York City built that fabulous billionaire row right there on central park think of the amount of money that a cost to build that I'm told something the range of two and a half billion dollars and all that money went on pockets of middle Americans. And when those people live there, they're going to need all kinds of middle class Americans to serve their wants and needs and wishes, and that's how the system works. Rich guys. Enrich women fuel the middle class because surely the forty to fifty. Million Americans in grinding poverty are not producing sufficient boats, and yachts and aeroplanes and fancy buildings and brand new stadiums. They're not doing that. There's no work very little if any, but for those wealthier Americans, everything I do in my life generates money for other people, and I'm not wealthy. I have an income. But I'm not wealthy when I see my rich friends do things. I see all these individuals benefiting by their economic activity that thousands and thousands of billionaires around the world and the millions and millions of millionare's around the world are the reasons the economy is moving forward so much in nineteen seventy nine hundred seventy seventy one percent of the world lived in grinding poverty. Here we are what about fifty years later. Seventy one percent has become thirty seven percent. It is falling rapidly because the wealth formation the spending of money can you smell? What I do. You understand what I'm saying? Let's continue. We've got thousands on hold. We've got D And get calls some from Nevada. Virginia, Chicago, Connecticut, Massachusetts in all places in between JD in Las Vegas. Can you smell what I'm talking about economic growth? You understand what I'm saying? Yes, sir. Billy and. Proud to call you by radio friend, all all these years grateful for what all you do. I believe you'd probably do it for nothing if you really want. I'm still passionate about I love coming in here and Sunday night talking to people like you. I enjoy the debate and angers me significantly when we have a left-wing Democratic Party that wants to destroy the country through illegal immigration, and then they wanted to destroy wealth and job creation of put more people on welfare because if you didn't have people like Wayne Allyn root, if you didn't have people like Steve Wynn. How many jobs Steve Wynn created do you think? How many jobs Attleson create? Hundreds of thousands of.

"And Fox Sports. A car landing on a roof to a car landing in a fool, we've covered Dr farmers. We know what thing or too because we've seen a thing or two. Arbres? And you're right. My farmers insurance exchange center affiliates price, not available in every state. Okay. A few things related that we made it yet. You start with this. On the top stories out there that. Mainly being reported by Adam Schefter. I find this a little bit comical to be honest with you. Here's the headline. Sources expect Patrick Mahomes to sign a record deal when eligible in twenty twenty. Oh, really? Well. Well, yeah. I'm pretty sure that's how it works. Like, right. That's like saying sources expect Aaron Rodgers to be the highest paid quarterback when they renegotiated steel which just happened to short time ago. Like, yeah. So the story goes on to say he could be the first ever two hundred million dollar man in the NFL and again. Yeah. So so Patrick Mahomes will Nabi he's got two more years on the deal but eligible they can get into extension talks next year, right? And outside of something awful happening to Mahomes. I'm like, you don't need sources for that. This is not to take a shot at Adam Schefter who I love. And he's amazing. But I understand the the the angle they're reporting on is is like the numbers are stacking in such a way that this is what could happen. Well, sure. But but the idea of when Patrick is ready. He'll be the highest paid player in the game. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Breaking news waters. Wet ride. The sky is blue grass is green for the most part. More. More more news at noon. Patrick will be the highest played quarterback in the game. Until the next big quarterback. Then is ready for his extension. Our work. This story goes on. I mean, like most of these stories due to sort of explain how striking while the iron is hot is look you are living in. Moment right now where the chiefs have one of the best quarterbacks in the game for a song. They took this guy tenth overall in the draft. They're paying him rookie scale for the next two seasons shooting. Not be extended. This is robbery. I mean, that's what when you have somebody who can perform the way he is. And you're paying him as little as you are you can build a monster around him, and you need to do that in a hurry. And I and I think that's what this this this article is leaning towards right? They got two more years after this one to really take advantage. And then and then that's it take a big portion of their cap earlier this week, we spoke to a cap expert, a former agent on our show, and and when you talk to guys who understand the finance of football. What what selecting a quarterback who's this talented as a Mahomes or say Russell Wilson was when he was taken away back by the Seattle Seahawks. Now, any of these young guys who play exceedingly, well, especially into the postseason like we saw him in his debut. You need to get you need to get your ducks in a row fast and surround him with town as quickly as possible because the finance of football avails you about a two year window after you find that diamond in the draft to build around, and if you pick poorly with your other assets, or if you bring in free agents who don't mesh well with your your franchise or they don't pan out. You're you're you're running out of daylight. It's why that she actually could be even scarier over the next couple of years because you would imagine in theory, they signed Damien Williams to an extension short time ago after he proved for series of games three or four games like oh he can play. This guy can be a weapon for us but signed him to an extension Damian was making nothing sitting extension. He signed is relatively cheap as well. I think he's making what I don't even know if he's making two million a year like I'd have to look up with the extension wise. But in NFL terms, it is is very cheap. And so if you're getting that. Kind of production from your backfield and your quarterback for like, I don't know four or five six million dollars a year. We know what the chiefs need to do going forward, which is go find some very effective players in the defensive backfield. Yep. They can go do that in the draft in free agency and become a little bit more effective on the other side of the ball. Well, look the heck out obviously, no question. I you know, if you think about the quarterback salaries as they stand I'm talking about their averages. The reason why the patriots continue to have so much success year after year after year is because they've been able to suppress how much they owed Tom Brady on a urine, you're out basis. Of course, they're incentivizing his contract in unique ways. And he's getting money in bonuses that few owners are willing to shed but his annual salary at salary the salary that that. Counts against the cap is fifteen million dollars. Tom Brady fifteen million dollars in a day and age where the top paid quarterback on an average salaries doubled making thirty four million dollars or thirty three five in Aaron Rodgers this season. So when you think about a drew Brees let let me find his his his average salaries twenty five million right now that sounds like a lot don't get me wrong. That's a ton of money. But I'm saying comparatively it's ten million less than Aaron Rodgers. Why do you think the saints are all of a sudden great again, it's because they have an elite level quarterback. And they're getting them. I saw what's interesting is that for a period of years after their Super Bowl victory thought with the saints was that the reason they're being held back is because drew Brees held too much of their cap. You'll have a percentage, and then drew assigns an extension, and he knows he's at the end of his career. And he wants to do I think he did that two year fifty million dollar deal direct and all at the time. Like, wow. Twenty five million dollars. They're not going to be able to do anything else. And then the cap changes and the quarterback values change and here's Jimmy Garoppolo and Kirk cousins now making more than drew Brees. And all of a sudden the saints are like now twenty five million dollars is cheap. And and we were hosting a game to go to the Super Bowl right because the cap continues to rise every single season. So you understand that fifteen million dollars was a huge amount. Yearly to give to a quarterback ten years ago. It's not anymore. You know, thirty million dollars. This thing is rising exponentially. So drew Brees is seven down the less list on average salary year to year. Tom Brady is about. Oh my God. He's ten slots, maybe twelve slots down from drew breeze. So he somewhere in the twentieth. And then the average salary. I mean, then go even further down to find Jared Goff. He's he's six behind Brady. And then because he's on his rookie deal. You can't even find Mahomes, you know, actually. He can. Yeah. And he's seven behind Goth. So this is the rubric first success in the NFL cheap elite quarterback or however you can arrive at that station, whether being aging guy, you can get for a hometown discount or because he has a interests outside of football. And he's he's planning the cheer -ciary plan the retirement plan like a breeze or Brady or you have a young guy who you found and he's a steel in the draft. What's going on there with with all, Tom? What's to give them a piece of the team? Or what what honestly like what I know Giselle always got enough money. But nobody does that. And so, and I know some of it's tied up in bonuses. And all that. But but but gimme the real did Robert Kraft given one percent of the team. Well, here's the thing. We see the average salaries we see the cap money spent, but there are bonuses that are given to players outside of the normal regular season payments allotted, and I'm very positive. That a lot of that overflow fund has been shifted to Tom Brady's Bank account. I mean, you know, no way he's giving up ten million a year. Right. And then on top of it. And this is all speculation. But here's some people around New England looking at how cozy the TB twelve clinic is nestled in patriot place and how close it is to Gillette stadium. And there's been rumors that perhaps Robert Kraft is a silent partner in this business venture that Tom Brady is launching. So maybe makes up some of what he's lacking in average salary year after year with contributions made to his other financial venture free rent. Maybe maybe free rent, and maybe even some capital investment. Yeah. I mean is like how do you do it? It's less. It's less about the how and it's more about the why the why you do it is because if you don't have enough money to spend on the rest of the team, you're not going to have a good one. Another big story broke just a short time ago that his chiefs adjacent for sure we'll get to that here in two minutes. We're also about thirty five minutes away from kickoff in the NFC title game here on Fox Sports radio. Let's get David Gascon back in here for a full update on everything that is going on today. Dave gentleman, showy dance showy, dad. Yes. It is. Of course, a boogie wonderland. My answer is I would I would like to dance right now, man. Yeah. You are geeked up about buddy is beating that team. I predict an undefeated run through the entire player. The only thing that's beaten buggy right now is wind sprints that was he found out on purpose. All right. I'm better now at least eight team in the Eastern Conference that you would like to see try to push Golden State. I wanna see Boston figure it out. I wanna see Boston figure out what's going on. And I'd love for that to be the NBA finals. Philadelphia though, like I mean, that's interesting too. But I mean, Philadelphia and Boston seemed like they were ushered into the Eastern Conference finals before the year's even started yet. And neither one of them are really holding up their end of the bargain. And so if they're not even holding up their end of the bargain in terms of being as good as they're supposed to be a helluva gonna play. The warriors got Toronto. That's not. I mean, that's fine. It's not as exciting. They're the best team. Right. They're the best team out of the east. But if they play against anybody, this is going to be your sound clip. We like to play basketball or there'd be that laugh that everybody reports. Like when the predator was hiding in the jungle and Arnold Schwarzenegger is is just laying under a tree trunk like. You like that that whole scene? That's what replays the mind. You are one ugly mother. Continue with thought you were talking to me. Beautiful. Do you guys have any extracurricular rooting interest in today's championship game? Well, rich played for the patriots. So. Yeah. So he's. He and Tom Brady or like this. All right. No, no. I didn't. I didn't put any money on this. No, no. No. No. No. But I do have well unless you consider that like, I'm in a playoff pool. Okay. So not to these specific games. But I put like twenty five dollars into a pool. A me. I'm just in an actual playoff pool. Like a bunch of neighbors. We jump in the pool we put a TV. Yeah. I get it. It's not a wager. It's more of a pool just happens to be named playoff. Yeah. The pool is called Pacific Ocean. But it's fine rich. We get your better than us. Snooty was. A kid kiddy pool. Modi's I only bring that up because right now as it stands the saints and the Kansas City Chiefs or three point favorites any institutes contests. Saints had opened up as three and a half point favorites with fifty four percent of public right now rooting for the road team from Los Angeles. Not surprising should be fun. Anyways away from the action on the field. According NFL network seen rapid for Thursday, quote, strong possibility that rob gronkowski will retire at the end of the season. Whether it's today or in a couple of weeks that is to be learned of in future events. Of course, ESPN's Adam Schefter reporting the Cowboys expected to hire John kidnap as their quarterbacks. Coach reason why is because Dallas is also considering quarterbacks coach presently Kelham more to be there next offense coordinator. And of course, smart as you just mentioned a few moments ago. There are several teams out there. Interested supposedly gonna services a free agent. Running back Kareem hunt me wall in college basketball today, another top team goes down Chapman..
