Bahubali Shete CEO of TinyChef on His Journey to 1M Voice App Users
"Remember when you and i i spoke about what you were doing that. You're working on the the knobs and the scale different things in order to automate all the mechanical parts of cooking. And then you're going to add. Recipes is just that was like sort of a secondary element in some ways and you totally flipped. It eliminated the first part. So i guess that makes more sense because you started out in the iot that's equipment and then you wound up determining that wasn't the best way to go. So what data points did you get. And and how did you collect those data points. The convince you to make the switch in your focus so Don't change the cooking equipment very often in the sense that smart kitchen appliances which are coming definitely You need smart kitchen appliance. You need robotics but consumers do not have enough space in the kitchen to add more wrote gadgets in the kitchen they already have enough and they don't chain them in unless there are no small blender on those kind of products so the basic cooking up a novel on wednesday by his dad with them for any answer fifteen years and it's it's not easy to change and you cannot retrofit on these devices because they're so attached to things that the look and feel and us except those products are very important so i felt that numis been not willing to know either it off changes equipments and hence the market was becoming very niche game smart kitchen appliances and i felt that i was right in saying that that it is going to be yields before the Plans has become a commodity. And become you know get used to them and start using them in the kitchen and in the meantime you know me as a startup definitely wanted to find where the pinpoint sought and assault them. And that's really felt that the pain points really in the journey and that's where we shifted our focus to this. How long did it take you to come to that conclusion to be already reality mad about you. Know five thousand knobs and be able to ship it to them. We made a road running campaign and all that and then we had noted on everything. Get so you had a indigo kickstarter. Yeah in new right. So you fully funded that you actually produce the product you could have shipped them the product but at that point you decided it's it'll be better for us to refund the money than to have to deploy this product in support it because you didn't really believe in that market segment anymore. I say so. That must have been a very painful decision to make. It's it's both painful as well as emotional for me. Because i come from robotics in address space and i'm so attached to hardware. I believe i can saw putting hardware than getting away from data and then being myself as a businessman rather than being technologist was said that a decision so tell me how that decision played out. was that just. You looked at the data. You made the decision or did you have a mentor. advisors other people in the company that you consulted with. How did that play out. This is really important. I know a lot of people have had go through these pivots and this is sort of a soft pivot but a significant one. Be great to share your experience on that. Yeah definitely for explain a very major role in that. So it is in vlad. I met so many People i met from meek it companies see yours to Big marketing gle ascent from campbell. Nestle and unilever walmart so many people and then i had the vehicle does the idea in understand the views on it and definitely doesn't have any clear advice coming from all of them which was also deflecting in my initial trials Consumers that it was difficult for them to add up or product in that existing kitchen and yeah a lot of an Next so it was. You talked to a lot of people they all gave you. Basically the same advice you were seeing the problems on the customer side so it just became obvious even though there was a painful decision for you emotionally given your background. Yeah well it's hard to. It's hard to kill the baby right. I mean i think that's what we would say is a baby for adoption or whatever it is you're doing and focus So then the the feature that you thought was going to be complementary to your main product became the product so once you decided that this how did you change. How did you change your strategy. What did that mean was going. You're going to be doing differently. Reduced doing more of the stuff that you already doing the recipe side or did you have to basically start over I had to start or in some sense It was in the same direction. Same solution same in a find though solid from the consumer angle but the approach is completely different. I i i i may have said this in one of the podcast but you know one of the consumer is such just nine initially conducted a focus group discussion. One lady told me a benign asked her a question that what is that your family as as it acknowledgee vici-. You had that in the kitchen to help you in the kitchen. And she said google maps to said my husband who is seventy plus. Now who couldn't drive denise back even in our own city now he's able to drive in any part of the world anyplace from any to any point with all the confidence just because he has maps. It doesn't get up. And i wish that technology was available in the kitchen with which i can walk. Can anybody can walk into the kitchen. Cook any dish they will and that goes in iowa for me. So that's fascinating so that's a really interesting insight so you you spoke with this one customer and you realize what they needed was google maps for cooking. And it's really interesting because we really think about recipes is being more mechanics of it. So how do i know what to do. When and what sequence. But it's really as much as anything a confidence builder if you could build them something like a cooking concierge or adviser that helps them through the entire process. So there's both a functional and emotional aspect to it grew and when i looked at it I also realized that there is so much of resources so many this is available in thumbs up man you can find it as a bs in a local all lack but still not satisfied for the simple reason that didn't know what to trust because it's one thing about searching for some election bleeding some reviews but other thing about cooking that dish yourself for your family it could end up being a messy meal basil. They didn't know whom trusted partner in himself. At spiezio sweaty critical of them and an back. I felt that you know be need not only a good content but a good experience in order to make be committee For consumers in the kitchen so to become the will the good expedience than realize that we need any is solution which understands colletti techniques colletti science. Which can then have a very fruitful conversation with the consumers and make that choice. I expediency really a natural expedience intense. I started my journey on the i or colletti
How Can We Hydrate Our Skin?
"Hey everyone welcome to the science of beauty. a podcast from allure. I'm michelle lee. The editor in chief. And i'm jenny by executive beauty director. And on this podcast we're gonna be diving into the science behind beauty and the products that we are always talking about an testing at a lower. Today's episode is all about hydration. And because we're taking this deep dive into the world of k. Beauty hydration as possibly the most important topic. That's right michelle and in our previous episode on layering. You heard dermatologist. Marie jin talking about the importance of hydration and how layering can help lock in moisture. So how do we help. Hydrate our skin in the first place to answer that question and more with dr christine lee. A senior research and development manager with age see our partners in producing this episode. Christine can you introduce yourself and tell us a bit about your background and pristine lee on the senior. Rnd manager overseeing unilever space. care business. In north america. I received my phd in two thousand in physical chemistry from the university of florida. And then i joined. Unilever and of worked on the hd brown for about two years so christine agency is based in seoul south korea. And i know you work really closely there with researchers. What can you tell us about. What's trending beauty right now. So in asia a lotta. The skincare formulations can karan's really focused on achieving bright hydrated glowing skin in korea specifically hydrating formulas are really key to rejuvenating the skin so it looks and feels smooth and soft but in addition in asia consumers just are so familiar and comfortable with multi step routines really elaborate application techniques. Like they talk a lot about double cleansing deep massaging. They'll even talk about like rubbing product in with your knuckles. They talk a lot about slapping and patting and tapping. so they're you know they're just really familiar and comfortable with application techniques that we don't talk about in the us as much. The other thing too is really interesting. About the asian consumer is the way the words they use to describe the look and feel of their skin that they're looking for so they'll talk about or glassy or porcelain skin and that much of this is really foreign to the american woman but it just really shows kind of the level of involvement Asian women have in their skincare routine. It's like my perfect skin. Everything you're saying. I'm like yes. Yes yes more of that please. You mentioned hydration which is of course the topic of our episode today as basic as it seems. Can you just define hydration for us as it relates to skin. I mean short really. Hydration pretty much means increasing the skins water content really at the end of the day. Dry skin is more than just a lack of water. When your skin is dry or dehydrated it can start to appear flaky doll. It really starts to feel uncomfortable tight irradiated. It can start to feel like you're getting more sensitive. This really is indicating a much more fundamental breakdown in the Healthy biological processes that are intended to keep skin soft and supple and smooth skins normal renewal processes slow down in absence of sufficient hydration which then leads to further dryness than it starts to pull your skin into this downward spiral alright. I don't love where this is going. What happens in the downward spiral. Our skin's natural explanation processing slowed down which leads to an accumulation of skin cells on the surface and these kind of accumulated or aggregates of skin cells. Start to form flakes which are another indicator of dryness and drier skin surfaces also lead to increase surface texture roughness which traps light which causes the skin to lose translucence and appeared dull and lifeless whereas hydrogen scan on the other hand is smooth radiant feel softer more elastic. More comfortable touchable. So it's not religious the dry or white hydrated it's really kind of biologically related. Wait supposed to versus comfortable. Soft smith hydrogen.

That was about the most personal podcast. We have done in this series three takeaways for you to think about in your life and your business i one. If you're not in the wellness business you probably should think about that. Wellness is important for your employees. It's important for your customers. In nearly every business coming out of cove it is going to be dialing up their wellness strategy. So think about that for your brand. Your business second takeaway. Do you have an explicit personal purpose. Ac talk so clearly about finding her purpose finding her voice claiming her voice the most important question. She asked people when she was on her journey to find her purpose. Who i was for you. Think about asking that to the people that are important in your personal professional life and be sure that you are explicit and following personal purpose and the third takeaway the sabbatical. How often do we take a pause and our life to recenter reconnect and be sure. We are spending our time our most valuable resource on what we want to be spending our time on in some ways. It's a luxury to take some time. Not working to recenter but it doesn't have to be a year or two. It can just be a weekend. It could be a week. It could be a month obviously the longer the better in terms of how deeply you wanna recenter. But i did not take as long as ac. Did i still found it very powerful to help recenter my life. The perspective i got by stepping away was that actually when i was in the corporate job at p g. I don't think i was playing to my strength as well as i could. In a more independent life for pursuing things that i was most passionate about so i decided to have a portfolio approach to life to not work for one company to have several things that were centered around my personal purpose that i would work. Activating in my daily work. That's it for this. Episode of the cmo podcast. If you found this helpful and entertaining i would be so grateful.

Hispanic Business at PepsiCo with Esperanza Teasdale
"Let's talk about the professional path and You are now the vp gm of the hispanic business unit for pepsico. What was your path to get there. Yeah i am studied engineering for college. So i was math and science person in high school and my physics teacher mr adrian nouvelle who actually was so important to my life that he came to my wedding by way and kind of steered me into the space helped me with College application letters recommendation. And so i studied engineering before. You're so i've been in a manufacturing environment for awhile. Bump steel toed shoes uniform union arment. And that's really where i started my career At the same time my company was so gracious that They paid for my mba. So i went to Uconn in stamford connecticut to take classes at night and really got more exposed to concepts of business management marketing research and just really loved it and so then when i asked for a new gig they said finance or sales and unlike okay sales and sales and all i need to go into marketing because marketing guides what we're doing in sales and i think they could do a better job and so i was lucky that my General manager at the time created a job and that was that was the beginning of my marketing career. So very classically trained at unilever and then pepsi around marketing from like you know the analysts all the way through up till now you know a vp gm. Which i'm really proud and excited about and And yeah i feel like i'm in a really great role. Right can make a big impact on the careers of our of our folks drive to mercy inclusion and drive the business results faster than general market because the population is growing so quick so and There's just so many things that are benefiting from being in this role that That i'm really grateful about. But that's kind of the the journey really. It was not linear at all Did not start off wanting to and marketing that side of my brain and that analytical process orientation i think does just a market yeah i think increasing edge to a home maybe ten years ago when you made the original switch i think today it's much more analytically rigorous than it has been in the past But yeah no. That's that's phenomenal. And i've had a few folks on the show. That have transitioned from engineer to sales marketing. And it's it's funny the way you went through that transition in how you described it because a few of them have described it similarly meaning they. They went from engineering the sales and then they realized my words not yours. How bad marketing screws it up. And they need to go help marketing. Try to figure that out because it it comes down to the sales folks at some level whether their marketing is getting it right or not so. It's an interesting learning curve and A pathway that. I've heard before. So what would what drove what drove the creation of the hispanic business unit. And how are you guys thinking about like measuring success. That's a that's a big scene seemingly to me as an outsider like it seems like a big big thing like a big shift in how you're organized. Yeah this was created. I believe in twenty eighteen by out. Carrie who at the time was still pepsi. Co when of are really incredible leaders kirk. Tanner who's our ceo and My current boss. Greg lyons our cmo and they just really realize that you know the hispanic Business is untapped potential and if we have a fixed mindset about it and we're not going to capture that growth and So what's the do different because in the past. Yeah we had a multicultural team. That definitely had A role but didn't necessarily have ownership and so the do different had to be to create an organization that was dedicated to this and have the right resources. And that's what they did and And it's been pretty successful. Ever since the the key measures to the other question you had really is around. Hey can we help grow faster with hispanic consumer than the general market. Can we help build equity with this fan of consumer and And those are some key metrics we look at and so far. We've we've been We've been pretty pretty successful doing that.
"Via data a favorite dessert from the ninety s from the nineties. I'll is coming back so we have brought on lead social media manager at mussa to talk us through it. Welcome to the show adam low. I'm so happy to be back and talking about something that's so so near and dear to my heart so for those who do not now explain what is being at us or via neta is Basically an ice cream cake. It's in a loaf shape and it's known for its signature ruffled. Look on the edges The classic one is made simply of vanilla ice cream and chocolate like magic. Shell chocolate And that's that's it. That's it's it's a chocolate and vanilla ice cream cake is the most straightforward and also Infancy way to talk about something that is famous for being quote unquote fancy. So when you say something is is back. Has it been rereleased or is it one of those things where it's like now cool again is being Rerelease after being. I believe it was discontinued sometime in the late nineties Although in my research for this i could not nail down a specific year When it was taken away so Vienna is owned by unilever like the international ice cream. Conglomerate and vienna is has been sold in markets all around the world for years. It's only in the us while most famously in the us that it has seen discontinued for the better part of twenty years. That's awesome was hurt. It's back yes but It's it has been continuously available in the markets this entire time. So why do so. Was this a huge moment online and like who who who was. Who's freaking out about this. Okay everybody was freaking out about. This is the is the most distinct way i can put it. Mostly millennials is. The best is probably the best description. I would refer back to what my colleague john said when she wrote this up She was talking about how this is. This is a desert that was widely available when we were kids and something she mentioned that was also like hundreds of people who are sharing. The story about this is When people saw this in their freezer they knew that they were going to have guests was something you serve. People saw the fact that that everybody remembers it but it's been gone for so long Created dislike nostalgia bomb that went off. The thing is it's like i said it's chocolate vinyl. it's certainly not Some exquisite flavorful creation. It's it's so much in the style of this thing with the way it's the the edges are ruffled and lay it on aso layers of chocolate and vanilla We actually had Sir on ada. From a few years ago we had a post about video that was filmed inside the vienna factory in I think i think it's in portugal. Where it's it's the assembly line basically and it's just the machines shooting ribbons of vanilla ice cream and chocolate and then slicing them Chopping them into the lowest that they get sold in and then packaging them. It's like he's the assembly line of how it's done. That post has in the entire time. I've worked continuously like made people Crazy when they see it everybody sees it and they wanna share somebody else. they're like. Hey remember eating this so yes long way of saying yes. There was a tremendous nostalgia about this. That honestly has been very obvious. This was going to happen whenever they brought the annetta back. So it's really just very surprising that they haven't brought it back before this because the potential for nostalgic marketing in a product. Like this has been there for for all this time. They were saving it for when the world needed at the most.

I truly couldn't put it down. You really get into this sort of the raw edges of what it means to have your own business where you're you're mixing things together in your kitchen, and then some potential huge account from overseas calls needs five finished units by the end of the week. Did we set out to make thriller a Memoir Business Book All in one or did you start from one vantage point in the move to the others while I? Thank you. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book that means a lot. Well, when I started my main focus purpose behind the book was really to be an inspiration source of information for further entrepreneurs. You know I've been through it from the ground all the way up to building the company to acquisition and. I. Understand. Now like everything it takes to build a business. Is Not easy of course, but I also knew that. The other business books out there just like. They can gloss over some of these things or maybe they're written by people who've never run a business themselves. So I really wanted something that was easy to understand that was written from a person who Wasn't a serial entrepreneur by had just you know kind of stumbled into business for the first time and I wanted all the lessons in there to really come from a place of experience. I wanted everything that I was suggesting to readers to be no based in in real experience that I had gone through and then the memoir piece. No. That was that was a fun important angle for me too because I think like especially like the earliest years of my life I mean it's it's it's a very short part of the book in the beginning but I think it really sets the scene for like. What it means to like, follow your passion into build a brand out of appear love. So that was important and I think it keeps the book interesting I did want people who? Weren't necessarily interested in building a business to still enjoy the story. You know that's why the memory pizza so. Also, Schmitz customers I I think it's really interesting to to learn about the stories behind brands. You know that's something that always fascinates me and I you know Schmitz has a huge customer base. Now I think they're going to really enjoy the story and I think it's just going to help You know add to that to the love thirty feel for the product and the brand so building a company from almost nothing to. Being. Sold at farmers markets to selling target and whole foods and literally more than thirty thousand other locations around the world. Then getting bought by a giant company like Unilever, all in seven years is such an incredible story. Is it hard to believe it happened and you know would your family and people who knew as a child say oh yeah. I knew she do something like this. Yeah. I every day still I'm just like. Like. How did that happen? It happened so fast and I think what added to just like the craziness of it too is that I, started the company when I was pregnant and so I was balancing motherhood along with entrepreneurship and so just like the last ten years of my life had just spent like this whirlwind of just like becoming a new person and like learning new things about myself and Yeah. My family's proud I was always like it's like the black sheep of the family. So I grew up in the mid west like tiny little town, no entrepreneurs and my family and everybody. was like living the the ideal life I guess you know you go to college you start your family and you never move and it just you know you're happy. In it never just felt right to me I, always knew there was more I just wanted just more diversity and exposure to new things. He does that was quick to move after I graduated college Sunday anybody was surprised by it. You know I also had been like jumping between jobs for most of my early adulthood and I think my parents always a little uneasy but you know had to trust in my choices and even the earliest days of the business you know I know they were a little unsettled with. The the lifestyle on another risk hasn't building a business, but they were proud and always there to support me I think know the one thing that's so special specifically with my parents is that they would go into stores and stand in the Dealer Niles and fix up the shelves make sure Schmitz looked perfect in in even talk to customers in the aisles and say you need to try this product and so you know they've been they've been fans and supporters to from day one and they they're still doing it.
Kraft Under Fire for Sexualizing Mac n Cheese
"When you think of macaroni and cheese what comes to mind comfort food and easy cheap meal for you your kids or your broke college student or something more risque. Wait if I confused you just now clearly, you miss the drama that happened earlier this month for kraft, Heinz the maker of the number one boxed Mac and cheese in America wound up embroiled in controversy over an ad campaign that most definitely attracted attention to celebrate National Noodle Day October six. In case you missed it on your calendar Somehow Kraft Heinz launched a playful campaign suggesting people send nudes that is noodles to friends and family. The double meaning of course was intentional sending nudes could mean sending nude photos in some of their ads, pictures of a box of Mac and cheese were deliberately out of focus as if the company was hiding something you know. And video featured former Saturday night live actor Vanessa Bayer. Trying to make the distinction between noodles and nudes. It's been pulled from crafts social channels, which I'll get to in a minute but take a listen clear not advocating you send nudes to anyone I'm talking about news not news I want there to be no confusion do not send nudes definitely send news even as it sent social media into a tizzy the campaign was a hit twenty thousand comfort loving tweeter took the brand up on its offer to mail free boxes of the cheesy stuff to loved ones. But unless you subscribe to the theory that all publicity is good publicity, the backlash created a craft crisis parents tore into the multibillion dollar brand on instagram. They said sexualizing macaroni was inappropriate for kids and accused craft of inciting children to send nude pictures. Many angry viewers threatened to ban kraft MAC and cheese from their pantries and turn instead to rivals like Annie's Mac and cheese owned by General Mills, some threatened to boycott. All craft products and some critics went even further according to buzzfeed Cunanan supporters got into the act. buzzfeed describes Cunanan as a collective delusion believers in what has also been called a right wing conspiracy theory subscribed to a number of different baseless notions including that something called the deep state promotes child sex trafficking buzzfeed reported that some Cunanan believers accused craft hines of using it's Mac and cheese nudes campaign for just this purpose. In the end, the company pulled its campaign in a statement brand officials stated, blandly, we sincerely appreciate and hear all of your feedback. As it happened, the news promotion was intended to end only a few days after it began anyway, whether craft considers its campaign, a win or a loss is hard to tell at the moment but consider this not only did craft managed to. Give away thousands of boxes of noodles but the controversy generated thousands of mentions on social media and in the press also keep in mind that making processed foods. Sexy is not a new idea for kraft. Heinz back in February of Twenty nineteen long before our world was upended, the company ran an actual ad on a porn site likening Mac and cheese attraction to addiction to. Well something else entirely that adds steely promoted devour a kraft Heinz frozen food line. That made headlines and sales. It's a big deal for consumer packaged foods players like Kraft Heinz Kellogg in Unilever Comfort food sales have fattened up during the pandemic now officials from Kraft Heinz, and Kellogg promised market very aggressively during the second half of this year to keep momentum up according to industry publication marketing dive given the ferocious rivalry between giant packaged food companies. There's really only one conclusion to draw about a brand that doesn't just go to the edge of tasteful nece but jumps right over it. Even today's cancel culture craft Heinz knows. Exactly. What it's doing.

Procter & Gamble: Let's #TalkAboutBias
"Companies combating bias many American. Corporations are taking a closer look at their impact on employees and customers when it comes to issues of diversity and inclusion one of the most visible examples, the stop hate for profit campaign, encouraging advertisers to boycott facebook amid calls for the social media giant to better moderate racist content. We've discussed this initiative at length here on squawk. SQUAWK pod check out Wednesday's episode for our most recent conversation with one of the campaign's organizers, but one of facebook's and Google's biggest advertisers has remained uninvolved in the boycott. That's proctor and gamble the consumer-goods Giant that owns household brands like Gillette. Bounty tied down vicks crest. The list goes on, but while fellow consumer giants like Pepsico Coca Cola and Unilever have pulled or paused their advertising. Advertising with facebook being Jay has not even though PNG has a history of calling out big tech platforms about this very issue in twenty nineteen, the company spoke out against digital media platforms. SUGGESTING PNG could move its aunt. Dollars to services do a better job at keeping their platforms free of offensive content, and they weren't kidding. In two thousand, seventeen and eighteen proctor and gamble had boycotted. Boycotted Youtube for over a year after its ads showed up next to terrorist content, so why his PSG remained on sidelines in this boycott, the company's strategy has instead been to double down on its own approach to combat racism with ads like the look and the talk about conversations. Black parents have with their children in this country. The talk actually won an emmy a few years ago. You were not pretty slow blood. Beautiful period. Okay. I'll never forget that. This week proctor and gamble released another short video choice encouraging white Americans to speak up and stand up against racial bias as well as the Hashtag. Let's talk about bias fostering conversation about race between strangers. Everyone has bias as might be uncomfortable. Can you imagine that officer having his knee on a white woman's neck like that for ten minutes it all starts with biased. Each video is a powerful watch. Damon Jones chief communications officer at proctor and gamble joined squawk box this morning to discuss the strategy. Here's Andrew, Ross Sorkin Damn Good morning to you. The morning before we get into some before we get into some of the details, just just tell us how this came about and I'm curious about what kind of debate there may or may not have been inside the company about how to approach this. Will for years we've been using our voice and position as a leading advertiser to spark these constructive conversation on race and unbiased. You know back in twenty fourteen. We launched a campaign called like a girl to talk about gender bias and twenty seven be launched a campaign all the talk that really shine the light on the conversations that black mothers were having with their children. Children to prepare them last year, bid on a campaign called the load, and recently with the choice we wanted to catalyze even more conversation, giving all that was happening in the world so we know that a lot of the core evil that we're facing right now. Racism sexism than up over. They all start with biased and we can't tackle these problems until we begin. Begin to talk about them, so the challenge is always. How do you do that in an accurate way? How do you do that in a way? That really brings people voices by invite them into really become part of solution. That's our objective with the talk about bias campaign. You know it's an important message, but we're. We're living in contentious time, and amid what some people. People might describe a cancel culture and I. Don't know if you remember when starbucks many years ago, put together their race together program, which immediately drew criticism despite I think it's well intentioned, and my question to you is how you think about that sort of a mix in terms of how you approach this issue, and what kind of feedback you've gotten us for. Sure well I think what we know because we're all about serving consumers, consumers want to know the values behind the brands they buy everyday and as we consider these types of programs, we do it in a fear and accurate in a respectful manner, and we're very clear on our goals, and we want a society that fosters great public discourse, even when we disagree, so we bring multiple views to the table, and we handle those using a very responsible way were clear on the objectives were clear on the outcomes, and we acknowledged that eight. Not everyone's a disagree, but we want everyone to come to the table, bringing their lived experience, but also bringing perspective that are beyond. Beyond their own, so what we did talk about bias. Perish Rangers together right. People who were different have different lived experiences, White, black gay shrink all these dimensions of diversity, and we said let's talk about these things right and sometimes disagree sometimes you'll get a little hurt, but that's the proper process of learning. We've actually taken that same process within the wall to P. and G. writes. The were walking the talk when it comes to bringing people together and getting through some of those difficult conversations at the end of the day. It's not about a popularity contest, but it's about getting to the culture of respect and understanding that we all want to live in.
Facebook shares suffer 8% loss due to boycott campaign aimed at removing hate speech from the platform
"Is our stock in the hour is coming back from some worst losses. Today. It's on the heel of 8% loss back Friday. And then, of course, because a number of several major advertisers now are pulling out of Facebook here to report on. It is candy lines, Kaylie. They're having some struggles. There they are. Interestingly, the shares are now positive on the day that that's probably just in tandem with the games. We're seeing. In the broader market because the list of advertisers pulling out a Facebook is getting longer and longer. It started with Unilever on Friday now includes the likes of Coca Cola, Starbucks, Bro. She's even Pepsico. These air. All companies that spend some $20 billion annually on advertising that are no longer doing so on Facebook and other social media platforms is part of an effort to get the company. To further crackdown on hate speech and post with disinformation on Mark Zuckerberg, in response to this on Friday made some moves on labeling voting related post expanding its prohibition on th beach in advertising, but apparently it's doing nothing to stem the tide. You have to keep in mind David that this is already going to be a difficult year for Facebook from the top line standpoint, given that advertisers are pulling back because of the pandemic, analysts only expect sales growth of about 1% this quarter, which would be the slowest in the company went public by far and these Pullbacks add some risk to that beauty. Accio, for example, one of the top advertiser spent more than $100 million on the Facebook platform last year, and it is not going to do so. For the time being, David. You can do as you suggest, is a little hard to figure out how much just advertisers pulling back period on by the way may be making a point of this to really make a point on civil rights in doing it and how much you really specifically something Facebook's doing. Great. That's a very good point. I will say that this does seem to be a more targeted boycott. And there is some concern on the part of civil rights groups, for example, that are not concerned, but they suspect that other companies will be kind of pure pressured into doing this, as there are these growing calls for social justice issues, just a question of how much of an impact it's really going to have, because even if half of the top 100 Advertisers on Facebook pull out. That's only an impact about half a $1,000,000,000. They're expected to make more than $18 billion this quarter. David
Facebook advertising boycott list: Companies halting ads include Unilever, Coca-Cola, Verizon, Ben & Jerry's
"Coca-cola. You've heard of them. verizon. Perhaps you know the name. You do if you know any of those names. It's funny. You don't know Unilever, but you would certainly know. Unilever's products dove soap and. Ben and Jerry's 'cause. They advertise a lot those soaps. Those ice creams You know Helman's bring out the bet. You could sing that jingle right. Sure you can. Cue Tips. Suave. We know those names coca. Cola because of advertising. Thank you by the way to all our lovely advertisers. All the above have decided not to be on facebook at least. For, a while Coca Cola, says from WHO months. The others Verizon Unilever say till the end of twenty twenty till in other words after the campaign. Mark Zuckerberg the owner. He has various titles, but I think owner really is the right one because he owns it pretty much outright sixty percent of the voting shares, Mark Zuckerberg is lost seven billion dollars they estimate because of the. The boycotts. Why are they boycotting facebook? Well, that's that's complicated. It's complicated. And by the way, it isn't just facebook in most of this case Coca Cola for instance Unilever to. They're boycotting all social media. All social media. Why you might say why. Because facebook they say is refusing to crack down on hate, speech and misinformation. FACEBOOK IS INTER AT boy. We are in an interesting battle right now. We are really an interesting time social. It's pretty clear if you're on social media that it's both wonderful and amazing and valuable, and you couldn't live without it and horrific at a dumpster fire and Oh my God.

Facebook to label all rule-breaking posts.
"FACEBOOK said it will flag all newsworthy posts from politicians that break its rules including those from Donald. Trump CEO mark Zuckerberg, had previously refused to take action against trump posts, suggesting that mail in ballots will lead to vote fraud, saying that people deserve to hear unfiltered statements from political leaders twitter by contrast slap. Day get the facts label on them. Until Friday trump's posts with identical wording to those labeled on twitter remained untouched on facebook, sparking criticism from trump's opponents as well as current and former facebook employees. Now facebook is all but certain to face off with the president. The next time he post something, the company deems to be violating its rules Zuckerberg said the social network is taking additional steps to counter election-related misinformation. In particular, the social network will begin adding new labels to all posts about voting. That will direct uses to authoritative information from state and local election officials. facebook he's also banning false claims intended to discourage voting such as stories about federal agents checking legal status at polling places. The company also says it's increasing its enforcement capacity to remove false claims about local polling conditions in the seventy two hours before the US election, but facebook has a history of trying hard not to alienate right-leaning uses and given how tightly Donald Trump has aligned himself with voters suppressing misinformation. It seems likely that facebook will air on the side of non intrusive and ignore labels which would minimize the impact of the campaign shares of facebook and. And twitter yesterday dropped sharply as the giant company behind brands such as Ben and Jerry's ice cream and dove soap, said it will halt US advertising on Facebook, twitter and instagram through at least the end of the year that European, consumer products may a Unilever, said took the move to protest the amount of hate speech online Unilever said the polarized atmosphere in the United States ahead of November's presidential election placed responsibility on brands to act. The company joins a raft of other advertisers pulling back from online platforms. Facebook in particular has been the target of an escalating movement to withhold advertising dollars to pressure it to do more to prevent racist and violent content from being shared on its platform.

Coca Cola pausing advertising on all social media, the companies saying there's no place for racism on social media so coca-cola, just the latest company in addition to her. She's in addition to Unilever earlier today, announcing that they are going to halt advertising on social media, and of course, this is a direct team at facebook which has been under pressure because of this flow of advertisers deciding to support this boycott Tim. extraordinary. Wow, the follow through here again. Give credit to the early stage advertisers, but when I hear this. I think I know it's very difficult. TIME FOR AD dollars. Every media company is assessing that and going through potentially painful time, although if you listen to facebook and their numbers. That was the extraordinary thing you really hadn't seen in effect, but there are other options. There are other media companies that are hearing this news. FACEBOOK's loss is their gain and again singling out social media as being a wild maybe. You know untethered environment of uncertainty in terms of the messaging. Advertisers want to control the messaging and the context in which their ads are placed they may be able to do that and other places. I'm not well-versed in the crisis management companies here in the US who knees, but I would suggest that facebook higher one this weekend, and that's not in a vacuum. We talked about this earlier in the week and we said. Those companies on Tuesday with I won't be the last, Coca Cola. That is a huge huge deal. and. The fact that he mentioned proctor and gamble earlier I mean it's no Bueno. Is they say I mean you gotTa? You gotTA.

You should check out this deck. We'LL TWEET IT OUT. Snacker now some companies give you a taste of an industry. Think about yum brands they own KFC Taco Bell and Pizza Hut if you know yum brands you know what's going on. In fast food other companies can give you a reflection of an entire economy. Can I just love this stat? Ninety percent of Americans live within ten miles of a wal-mart which sells everything. So if you know what Walmart's doing you kind of what the American economy's doing unil- ever on the other hand is bigger in scope. It is a mirror into the world of retail spending. They've had to buy those little folder for passports. This company is dual headquartered in London and Rotterdam Rotterdam what is Rotterdam just like an Amsterdam cousin. No one really knows what it sounds like. An off breed rottweiler. But I don't think it is. It's like the Narnia Holland. The diversity you will find you'll ever sales. Seventy percent are outside of North America in South America. They're all over the world and then don't forget about unil- ever size. They did thirteen point. Four billion dollars in sales last quarter which is about one half lifts also make like everything from Helmand manifested Dove Body Wash dollarshaveclub shave club to cue tips and Lipton ICED tea. That just destroyed by Tom. There are five cents is on your body. Guaranteed one two. Three of them are touching something that was made by Unilever today. So you'll ever earnings report was fascinating because they reveal how work from home which is happening. Globally is shifting the world's buying and usage habit. And then what we was extra fascinating was how they break down. What's being hoarded right now? And what's actually being used? Let's start with shampoo. That's a whole division at Unilever. What they told us is that shampoos. What they told us is that shampoo sales are up. People are calling it but they're using it less deodorant sales same thing it is being hoarded aggressively. But it's being used barely. In fact they went into detail about how little it's being used. Take personal care. Products for instance like Shampoo Deodorant. We are buying a lot more vet. Because we're all like hoarding and filling up our pantry. But we're using personal products on average eleven times fewer per week which is Kinda Gross. Let that sink in. That means three. Fewer Deodorant swipes a couple less conditions. And let's be honest Wednesdays or no Shampoo Wednesdays. I mean no one can smell you. Zoom in the meantime. There's another funny thing. Is You get to know about Unilever? It is. The world's biggest ice cream visit has a lift worth of sales every year in the brands like Magnum yet. Briers Ondeck popsicle and Vermont Favorite Ben. And Jerry's you can throw anything into a ben and Jerry's it's not gonna be as good as just Ben and Jerry's interesting insight about ice cream. Sales about half of them occur at grocery stores but the other half occur on site in like a scoop truck by Venice beach. And that's kind of problem because right now you're getting none of that scoop truck by Venice beach. So there's a cease Afaq sales at grocery stores are up but sales outside of grocery stores aren't happening period. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over Unilever in Rotterdam half the time? There's a big pivot in retail for this crisis and is cutting out the middleman. Move over Harry's and Casper there's a middle aged Dutch guy who wants to go direct to consumer over here today. Big Old Unilever relies on retailers like Walmart to actually sell the products that it produces and the krone. Economy is showing unil- ever that it can successfully cut out that middleman. Nick and I found this one shocking. Apparently six percent of Unilever sales or online at like Unilever Dot Com. Whoever's buying shampoo you'll ever dot com revlon but online sales for Unilever jumped by thirty six percent last quarter that's direct sales to you from looney. Unilever. They want you buying up treasuries cup a soup on their websites. That's right Unilever wants you buying from Unilever dot com instead of Amazon dot com snacks challenge. Update were little over halfway done. So if you're running a loop just keep running. Can you'll get all of. It always works for our third and final story. Gilead got everyone excited to start the week but then a new report made everyone very sad. Carolina feels like the classic throwback entourage episodes on this video. Doing the movie got hurt. He's not doing the move on Friday last week. The University of Chicago Hospital was hopeful about this drug called Rim desert. Yeah interesting name very confusing. Sounds like it's made by Unilever but it's actually produced by Gilead Pharmaceuticals and was really effective in treating like one hundred twenty five Kobe. Nineteen patient. Could this be the one? Could this be Kiana? Is it red pill or blue pill? They're like oh it's both Pales Kia. Investors wondered if this could be the one that helps us end this cove nineteen crisis although Gilead and like a bunch of science experts. Who Poke the brakes on this one guys? Don't get too excited. We're in early stages on this thing and then Wall Street got too excited. Excited actually surged after. This early report gave hope to investors that this could eventually fix crisis and reopened the economy. That was way too overly optimistic. The news from yesterday another more robust clinical trial for Rendez aveer shows. It's actually not that effective cure and covert nineteen and just like. We told you on Monday. This is also playing out just like a screenplay. It is a tale of two clinical drug trials. This Chicago trial was a small data. Set One hundred twenty five patients. Isn't that many and on Thursday? Somebody accidentally published an early report on a bigger and better study. That was way more relevant than that. I won't rewind to January when the covert nineteen outbreak was like devastating China. Gilead recognized an opportunity to test rim desert and see if it was useful in treating unfortunately when they did this early test in China. The drug showed no benefits and that was on twice as many patients summer. You had a small study in Chicago. That showed good results a bigger study in China that showed bad results now gilead still says the Chinese study showed like some potential benefits so more studies are coming while we're waiting for those studies Jack. What's the takeaway for our buddies over? Gilead the power of a control group. This is the old. Ab Test snacker. Jack Burns his tongue. I could feed him some nice cool milk from that. Dangerous Thermostat had burnt him a couple of days later. Jack's tongue miraculously gets better at it. Was the thermostat cured. The awful the flaw however in that thinking my tone would have got better without the milk and without the dangerous thermos that I should probably throw away. The Best Studies include a control group and a treatment group. Shyness study did this. Chicago's study. Did they randomly gave the Chinese patients? The drug or like a sugar capsule that looked like the so. The Treatment Group got the real drug. They got Ram Desert and the treatment group. Fourteen percent of them ended up dying and in the control group which didn't get the real drug. Fewer people died in fact only thirteen percent. That's the opposite of what you would hope that. Remm desert would do pretty much means that we cannot reject the no hypothesis. Drug wasn't effective intriguing. Covert Nineteen Jack. Riyadh that tone. Whip up the takeaways force over there.

Hi Jill Hello Okay so you've been giving people financial advice for a long time how spooked her folks right now compared to moments of uncertainty in the past a you know we go through these things and I get you know every time there's a big move in the markets or Abi the headline it starts to a nervous and the real issue is because we are human beings we want to do something with that anxiety I would say that a couple of times year it's gotten to sort of a blinking red ish feel and that is just happened last week when someone called my podcast they said what should I do too for Armageddon and it was like okay and you're telling me that's happening probably not call me right right exactly I know so let's talk a little bit about some solutions when people fear a recession the instinct is let me pull all of my money out of the market but you say that's a fool's errand y you know this is just some variation on the theme called timing the market and what we have learned time and time again is that those folks who are trying to out guess or find the next move in the markets they just never ended up doing a great job and the real reason why is it even if you're lucky enough to get the first part of the equation correct let's say you are smart enough to sell in October of two thousand seven it's just nearly impossible to try to figure out when to get back in so what we know is that over the long term market timing just does not work and anyone who says they can predict the top and the bottom is basically pulling your leg I'm actually thinking though about those at retirement age H who may be thinking they just WanNa take all of their money out of their four one K. is your advice different for those folks you know I think that it doesn't have to be so much age based but it is as you say when you need the money and I agree I think that there are some folks who are saying to themselves hey wait a second we're in this really long bull market would I'm going to wait until the next bear market to make move well no that's not the smart advice but the right advice is to imagine this I've got some money in my 401k or IRA I don't need all that money. The day I retire in fact my retirement is just the beginning of the next phase of my financial life and phase can last an awfully long time you might retire when you're sixty seven years old and lived twenty or twenty five more years so what we're really talking about is due you have the appropriate amount of risk that you can really tolerate going into that period for those folks who are just carrying a whole bunch of risk right now young or old you just feel like wait a minute this gotten ahead of me I need to make a change that's okay but stick to that allegation going forward don't second guess yourself yeah with less than twenty seconds what's one smart money move that folks can also make right now given this uncertainty I would say just pay attention to the three big things in your financial life pay down consumer debt including your student loans try to accelerate that build up that emergency reserve fund six to twelve months of your living expenses and take of his such action as you can in contributing to your retirement thank no it's hard yeah little bit yes Jill Schlesinger business analysts for CBS News and host Joel president trump said today the Democrats want

heitkamp welcome thanks so much for having me on well first of all do you think looking at what's going on with the impeachment inquiry right now and looking for forward that there's any chance that the Democrats don't end up impeaching this president you know I think that everybody is got kind of the cart before the horse the investigations that are ongoing there may be something that exonerates this president there may be things that are told that would save that the president was not aware however what we've seen so far is is incredibly troubling and I think once we get to the public hearings we're going to have a much better idea on exactly where this whole thing falls out but I think that the Democrats have clearly coalesced around actually conducting the inquiry which will isn't true a month and a half ago and so give me a sense of what you're hearing from people in your home state of North Dakota do you think that there is any appetite for impeachment right now I think there's two groups one the president is getting picked on he's our guy and even people like Senator Kramer who defend him repeatedly and exhaust all reason in defending him they're still not defending Munaf and then there's a second group I wish it would all go away I'm so tired of talking about it and this none of this is helpful in moving the country forward and so I think there is a level of exhaustion in America and I don't think it's just didn't rural America I think it's across the board people just want things to be more normal so it seems like what you're saying is your message to the Democrats would be don't move board with impeachment based on that no I think that I think the speaker absolutely has a point when she says I wasn't looking for this it was handed to me it was basically driven by the president they have a constitutional obligation to do their job of checks and balances I'm just saying that they also have their obligation Shen to make a very targeted and I think specific case for why this president should be removed at the ballot box and one of the concerns that I have is that teach meant basically sucks the oxygen out of the room in making the case for why Democratic leadership would be better for this country okay so let's talk about Johny Twenty and the Democratic primary that's going on there's a new poll from Suffolk University and USA Today that shows former vice president Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren next neck in the early state of Iowa Biden with eighteen percent warren with seventeen percent what do you make of that I think it's Lee dangerous to look at Iowa and just look at public opinion polls you've gotta look at what's happening on the ground and who's got the best organization and by all accounts Elizabeth and Mayor Pete and Swipe expect that what we're going to see the is a mixed results out of Iowa but we're also going to see a lot of candidates what they would do well they're not doing well does it concern you at all as somebody who represented a state that as you've said is further to the right than than a lot of states in this country North Dakota does it concern you that Elizabeth Warren who is on the left wing of the Democratic Party that she's doing as well as she is in the primary process so far I mean she's not breaking out she's in competition with a whole lot of other people and again when you when you look at those numbers both binder holing below twenty percent and that's pretty remarkable and so let's not overstate it I think that she has a message she's clear about why she's doing it that compelling to people because they are tired of people who will talk around issues and not address them directly so I expect that what we're going to see will be a lot of people being more direct about their message you saw already with senator close shower and I think mayor Pete moving forward so there's a lot of times between now and the Iowa caucus do you think though that the Democrats and Republicans who say that Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders would not be able to win against president trump. Do you think that they're right no I don't think they're right I think that everybody needs to take a deep breath and realize that if this be uh-huh about a major initiative like Medicare for all then we've missed the message and that's the danger the danger is that this has to be a referee and on this president and the frustrating part for me is when I listen to this argument about who's going to pay for healthcare number one it doesn't address how much healthcare we're buying that we're not getting good results from but it also gets the president off the hook he's in court right now saying we're going to eliminate your protections on pre exist conditions and we're GonNa take away your Medicaid expansion which has been critically important to rural health care we need to make this about the president and his policies not just the corruption and not just the crazy that comes out of the White House but how he is hurting Americans every day with the policies that he's promoting but if it is a warrant or a sandy there's that ends up getting the nomination do you see them backing off of their medicare for all plan to try to appeal to a general election electorate no I don't I mean I think they are true believers will see what Elizabeth says today or in the next couple of days about how she's GonNa pay for this but I think at the end of the day they are who they are ah that's what makes them compelling candidates the question is can they sell those policies it's going to be up to them to sell those policies Bernie constantly reminded we look at you know the majority of people in this country would love to be on Medicare if they could my point is there's a fair number of those people who don't want to be on any government insurance and so let's move ourselves forward in terms of The direction of universal coverage without doing dramatic attic things that are going to frighten people and take the focus away from what the president's doing which is taking away healthcare from millions and millions of people in the this country what do you make of what Warren and Sanders are saying about taxing the rich right now they're they're talking about Elizabeth Warren and Ultra Millionaires tax people would pay a two percent tax on every dollar they have over fifty million dollars is that something you think makes sense for the party to get behind right now I'll tell you as polls the high even among Republicans You know I'm a former tax commissioner from North Dakota so I look at this kind of from how do you administer it and I think you'll see that the countries that have actually imposed wealth taxes the majority of them have backed off because it didn't achieve the results that they hoped so my advice is look take a look get things within the current tax code that advantage very very wealthy people things like the difference between earned and under did come in terms of tax rates there's a whole the things that you can be talking about that actually achieve I think a better result but like I said this is enormously popular not just among Democrats and indeed Hannah who in the last debate many times reminded voters where he's from here is but this is why people here in the Midwest are so frost capable or that were better than the next person but we do come with a different perspective if you grew up in the Midwest and also I think a greater sense of the political challenges and I think that's what he's saying in he's from Indiana I'm from North Dakota we understand that Democrats used to win those states but they won by being tastes and by not over promising things they couldn't deliver and so I think if you look at what his message really was it wasn't one of superiority do you think that he could be a surprise winner in Iowa Yup I do you know it was interesting nate silver today said look but he's been at thirteen percent for awhile and again in Iowa I look at who is the ground game who has the enthusiasm who has people who are true believers knocking doors and I think he is surging that is Heidi heitkamp who's the former Democratic senator from North Dakota thank you so much for joining us you bet thank you a paper published today in the Journal current biology identifies the world's loudest bird it's the male white morning session expertly mimicking a few tunes from his Repertoire Amazonian songs this bird had a six pack the Burj Abdomen was five times thicker than that of a normal bird clearly had to be.
