"Counted for about five point. Seven billion dollars of that in total so american takes half so almost in other words. The us spends nearly as much on paper towels as every other country in the world combined. Hey where you say you say those fucking towns away. it's not it's not even close up in covid cases. Were up in paper towel. You smarttalk young america. Who says week aren't so like a shining city on the mountain and cova de has only made us by more paper. Towels sent me to my last paper dolls. And we don't recycle them for the most part and most of the paper products that we buy here in the us are not made from recycled paper themselves particularly not paper towels so all of this is ending up in landfills. Yeah so. According to the epa americans consume about six hundred sixty two pounds of paper per person per year a lot. It's a lot of fucking pay for eighty one percent of paper discarded in a given year in the united states could be recycled while only about thirty percent of that eighty one percent of paper is actually recycled. So we're missing a huge margin of paper. That sounds impossible like to actually recycle more well in germany in two thousand five so yes fifteen years ago. The paper recycling rate in that country seventy four percent figured it out. They figure it out fifteen years ago and they're still staying red around that numbers to this day. So it's a uniquely american problem. We need to stop being so obsessed with paper towels and the minor convenience. They bring us. They weren't created to fill a need like so many products which are always the products that we love the mouse. Because it's like. Oh we all needed this. Thank goodness that you made it.

Frank It Forward: How to Sell Ball Park Franks When No One's at the Ballpark
"The weirdest baseball season in history started last night. The Twenty Twenty Major League baseball season debuted with a clash between the Washington nationals in the New York Yankees, nationals park in the country's capital was packed with. Virtual fans, that's right, the fans you may have seen on TV. Were just images manufactured for the cameras by Fox Sports? In reality, the teams play to an empty stadium because of covid nineteen. This season teams will play only sixty games down from the typical one hundred sixty two right now. There's no intention to have many live fans at any of them just TV cameras. We won't get into the debate about why Fox decided to manifest virtual fans complete with recorded sounds of cheering applause, and the like the TV audience know. Today, we're interested in one of those things that like baseball. Itself has always seemed timeless the stadium hotdog. Too, many of us me included a hot dog goes with the baseball game. The way hot fudge goes with vanilla ice cream. They just belong together, but not this year. Needless to say virtual fans don't order francs with mustard and onions, nor do they reach out and snack a beer from a wandering vendor that's leaving entire industry, high and dry stadium vendors are out of work. That's giving Ballpark Franks the nation's number one. One brand of hot dogs and opportunity to look philanthropic, while also promoting their dogs to fans, watching Games on the small screen on Wednesday, which not coincidentally was national hotdog, day Ballpark Franks and it is donating one hundred thousand dollars to unemployed stadium vendors through a baseball charity in campaign. They're calling frank it forward. They're also asking fans to tweet their favorite baseball memories along with the Frank. It forward Hashtag of course. For every tweet that fans post ballpark will donate an extra dollar up to fifty thousand dollars within a day. Fans had begun complying. Some tweets were clearly planted by Tyson foods. ballpark Franks owner to get the Frankfurt Frenzy on fast forward, but some were genuinely sweet like a tweet from Ban Molly, Heidrick, she finally recalled attending the thousand fifteen world series game with her dad, telling her for the entire five hours that she would be Zombie the next day at school. She said she almost caught a foul ball and yes, she couldn't stay awake in math class. Her HASHTAG, no regrets. The promotion gives a sheen of sweetness and philanthropy to the ballpark francs, which happens to be America's biggest seller of the process. Meet parent. Tyson foods of course is struggling with its image these days between having covert outbreaks at many of its meat, processing plants, and being under investigation by the Justice, Department for alleged poultry price-fixing, but on a summer night. We need to dwell on the bigger picture. Maybe. What's worth spending time on? Is The marketing rivalry between BALLPARK Franks in America's second largest brand Oscar Mayer that brand owned by Kraft, was revived three years ago when its parent put ten million dollars into removing chemicals like nitrates nitrites from its dogs, the attempt to cater to the clean eating tastes of millennials. It helped nowadays craft hines has been doing well selling its enormous variety of grocery store staples to our newly stay at home nation, but how will it compete at the? No, Fan Ballpark. Hopefully not with a repeat of its attempt from twenty nineteen, a hotdog ice cream sandwich. It was made with. Get this candied hotdog, bits, hotdogs, sweet, cream, spicy, dijon, Gelato, and a cookie Bun, according to writer Michael Clare and a Major League baseball publication called cut four last August. Clare's take on what was clearly a desperate attempt to get the upper hand in the Weiner wars. This hot dog mustard ice cream. Monstrosity needs to return to whatever hell it came from. So. Far Oscar Mayer hasn't made any announcements that one this year may be given covid nineteen craft hines got a little more sensitive about the queasiness factor when it comes to the economics of the Frankfurter fight between Tyson and craft Heinz. The ballpark matters in two thousand sixteen Americans spent twenty million dollars buying hotdogs at ball games, so says the national hot dog and Sausage Council. Council apparently, that's the last time they gathered this debt. So the biggest question this year will be. Will fans watching at home still by hotdogs, or will they just eat? Whatever happens to be for? Dinner served on a real plate, not in a little cardboard dog holding. If that happens, the frank forward campaign is unlikely to give much of an advantage to Ballpark, Franks and hopefully. WHO's out of work? hotdog vendors have already found a way to turn their talents to something more lucrative. And perhaps less greasy.

"But if you enter a ticker into this, find ETS beholding, it's held Atef stock finder. So if you want to enter Facebook, you could see which ETF's on the biggest shares, how many CFC's own the shares, what percentage they own the biggest gainers. It's kind of interesting if you really want to drill down to, you know what is in a lot of these, these different funds. And so for Facebook, for example, there's two hundred and six ETF that hold Facebook and ETF's owned one hundred forty one million shares and gives the biggest one the largest allocation. So there actually isn't an ETF that holds a twenty percent in Facebook. It's the communications while it's actually a spider fund from State Street, which kind of brings this whole discussion. Full circle anyway for investing nerds. It's kind of interesting to play with. That's my other recommendation. Okay. So I'm two-thirds done with a book called the meat racket by Christopher Leonard. It is such a good book can cannot recommend it highly enough about Tyson Foods and their history and and what they did with vertical integration and the the stranglehold they have on the industry and also tells the story about like farmers in America and a little bit about their history. So it's investigative journalism and character development and history, and it is really, really good. One of the things that I was sort of hesitant to read it was because I, I'm I'm in fairly sensitive like the animal stuff, but it wasn't like over the top describing how awful they're living conditions are more about the business. I think one of those people who does not want to know how to sausages made. Yeah. Yeah. So it didn't really. I mean, it did a little bit, but that wasn't that wasn't the point of the book. So again, cannot recommend it highly enough. Okay, succession. We spoke about ready and the comedy that you recommended. I'm halfway through it and it is very, very. Good, the Neal Brennan. Yeah, and watch till the end because yeah, three weeks, his life story continues to get more complicated. It's at a few people who said that they like that it was. It was said, I liked how he talked about his emotions and and after a while suppressant of they just atrophy. I thought that was that was pretty interesting. Okay. Lastly, so I, I went to six flags yesterday. I really visit six flex. It's a New Jersey. It's called great adventure. And so I got the flash pass, which allows you to go faster. Bought the line for it was like an hour. I was so pissed off because I had purchased it online, and there was a separate line that if you already bought online, you could sorta Zuma head, but it was like hidden. So I was so annoyed what is the point. Anyhow, there's this rollercoaster called king decapa and it goes like pretty much literally straight up and straight down. And it goes from zero to one hundred twenty miles an hour in three seconds, the pretty sweet and that's how the rights that's how the white starts. So the rights starts like that. I three seconds. The draw. So I did it twice and the second time I just it was just too much like so by the end of the day, I was just like your body can only take so many roller coasters, but I have a photo of beyond that ride, and it is pretty funny. It's Australia's. Okay. Yeah, I'm a big roller coaster fan too, but I'm not a heat fan of waiting in lines. Yeah. So the flesh pets thing was good. It worked really, really well, but the line. And then at the end, I'm like, how do I return this? I'm like, Hello, somebody. And apparently if the wait online to return it, which is the worst thing ever so. Okay. Anyway. All right.
