"vail" Discussed on Business Wars Daily

"January 28th. Happy Friday one and all. Hey, if you're thinking of hitting the slopes this weekend, you may want to bring a lawn chair in a book to pass the time you'll likely spend in the lift line nearly 60 million skiers visited U.S. resorts last season, making it the 5th busiest season for the industry on record. Despite many ski areas not being able to open until well into December, this season's numbers are already looking like bell explode too. Why? Well, it may be partially because of a business move by a certain mountain conglomerate. Yes, that's actually a thing. A move that probably has the company questioning its strategy. We're talking about Vail resorts Inc, which started as one modest ski area in Colorado, but the company has grown spending the last two decades plus buying up local mountains across the country. Plus three in Australia, but who's counting, right? Vail resorts now has 37 ski areas in its portfolio. Much to the chagrin of locals living near those aforementioned ski areas. The company has been criticized in the past for catering its past programs and amenities to more affluent international travelers rather than the people who actually live in the general area of the mountains it acquires. And speaking of past programs, that's what's gotten veil in a bit of hot water this season. Back in 2008, the company rolled out its epic pass, which shook up the industry according to The Wall Street Journal. Skiers could buy one pass that granted them access to several of veiled properties. It was a win win for skiers who got to try different resorts and for veil too, which entered the ski season already flush with cash from those sales. But this season Vail resorts did something that had folks scratching their heads. It dropped the price of its epic pass by 20%. That of course sent buyers into a frenzy. In December veil said it expected to sell 2.1 million epic passes. 700,000 more than last season, according to The Wall Street Journal. You can probably see where this is going. 2.1 million epic passes means a lot of folks at Vail resorts. Lots of visitors coupled with COVID induced staff shortages has spelled trouble for many of veil's properties. One frustrated skier turned their anger into an Instagram account with almost 35,000 followers. Won the documents overcrowding it resorts on the epic pass. Followers report waiting 45, 60 even 90 minutes in line to ride the chairlift at some locations. Veil resorts chief rival altera mountain company didn't slash prices on its multi resort icon pass, which directly competes with the epic pass, altera doesn't publicly share numbers, but in 2019, the company said it had exceeded its estimate of selling 250,000 icon passes. A far cry from 2.1 million to be sure. Still, altera owned mountains aren't escaping the crowds either. Washington's crystal mountain recently implemented a policy that would force skiers to make reservations to get on the lifts. After pushback, especially from folks who had spent nearly a thousand bucks on an icon pass for unlimited visits to the mountain, executives changed course, and implemented a reservation system for parking instead. Listen, we get it. For many folks, nothing feels better than a hot drink at the end of a long ski day. But until heightened demand dies down or until veil resorts reins.

"But i think it's really important not to drive past the fact that we continue to see strong growth in asp's across the whole marketplace driven by higher full price realization. We've been talking about for several quarters and lower markdowns and leveraging the capabilities of identifying our inventory. Knowing where we wanna put it putting it in the path of the consumer optimizing it between ourselves and our physical locations or digital locations and increasingly providing that endless access to some of our wholesale For some of our most strategic wholesale partners All of these things are contributing to a higher level of full price realization across the marketplace. And so we do believe that. This is the base from where we want to operate as opposed to a moment in time. And that's driving profitability for nike at a moment that That where there's lots of of disruption so. I thought that was kind of an interesting look at. Maybe why they're not just jacking. Prices like crazy right now but they are thinking about what the rest of the industry is doing to raise the average selling price of the things they so feel down. Vail resorts are you.

"On our episode of travel stories. Vail village is kinda cool for summertime. Maybe next time. I would opt for that but vail. Since this was laney's i think third trip. They're the cool thing about going to a little place. Like vale is the safety factor. Involved and laney's familiarity means that she can explore on her own. She can meet up with me if i'm already out of the condo or whatever. She knows shops and restaurants. And everything by name. And there's a free shuttle that you can on and it takes you anywhere. Your heart desires so vail definitely holds a little piece of our heart Especially i think during the summertime but like laney said earlier. She hates hiking so but we did ride the gondola up to the top of the mountain. What did we do the mountain. The mountain coaster. I love the mountain coaster. It is just like a little one cart roller coaster track type thing and like you control your speed on it so i like sped up and then we would hit like a really sharp turn and you him break and it's super fun because i like going by myself and like it's just i take a picture of myself every time i go on it and then like like now i have through pictures of me on it Like to compare may from like being eleven being thirteen being fifteen. I love that. And as you're saying that i'm thinking for all of the parents listening That's probably a cool point to vale is convenient. You know another convenient spot for us to travel to because we can drive there and we knew our way around and all of that so it was familiar but what laney was just really referring to you. Know i think speaks to Stability and like. What am i trying to say. Even though her lighter addition yeah thank you. Her life changed dramatically in the months leading up to her. Third trip to vale. Vail did you know kind of provide that sense of normalcy. I guess if you will that's what we do and even though we're a family of two now that we can still uphold that same tradition. So i guess i would. I would give that advice. That just came to me too too. If you have places that you have traditionally gone to as a family and that's not an option for everyone to go together anymore. Perhaps you as a single mom or single dad should consider keeping the tradition something that the kids really wanna do. I think kind of happened by chance for us but not really because we knew what we knew. We wanted to go there because we loved it. We still love it Do you remember what was happening at our apartment and what we were in the midst of when we went we were moving the because there was like mold and water drainage everywhere in our apartment. is not fun so there was a water leak in a floor above us that caused major damage to our apartment and on a whim we needed to move. They would have moved us into a different apartment unit except there was not another apartment like ours so we would have had to have downgraded which would not have been the end of the world but like we said after being stuck in our apartment for months on end during covert and especially during like complete shutdown downsizing more.

"I'm a huge fan of processes and systems right. I mean in these podcasts. I often give you three steps. Five seven steps. These are the things you need to do blah blah blah. All the jazz right well. When it comes to going fishing on anonymous poker site sites. I have a three step process. Step one is fine. The fish step to isolate the fish. Step three exploit the fish. I'm going to dive into each of those right now. For you step one was to find the fish and for those of you might not know let me give you a definition for the word fish or for the player type fish right. This is a weak level. One player that means they mostly only think about their cards in the board. They're often recreational and they play just way too many hands. In general most of the time fish are passive. But some fish are hyper aggressive and we might call those maniacs or dunks now what are the pre flop actions that indicate a fish now. These are prevalent on anonymous sites. But they're actually across. The board tournaments sitting goes live poker anonymous sites No limit limit poker. They're everywhere right. Listen to these right here. This whole of these will indicate a fish. And if you listen to this podcast. Everything i'm about to tell you is often what i tell you not to do. Right in these various strategy podcasts. So the first one the thing that indicates a fish is any limping at all. The next one is calling to frequently. If you look at a player and you say to yourself oh this guy is always calling. Yeah he's a fish right. Maybe you see these players doing a lot of over calling. That means they call after someone else calls or over limping. Someone else limps. I in vail limp two players limp there the third lemper another pre flop action that indicates a fish is raising and then calling every three bet so basically they just can't find a fold after putting chips in the pot. Another fishy play defending the blinds with any two cards or because it suited or they just can't even fold the jack seven off suit because they put in the big blind already. They're not gonna let you take it from them. Lastly if you're on an online site and you have access to a hud v pip might be greater than twenty five percent. You'll also see a huge gap between v. pippen pfr and those maniacs. Those dunks hyper aggressive fish. They're gonna have a pfr of greater than twenty five percent. Now let me ask you a question. What are the post flop indications of a fish. I have my ideas and let me give. There's four of them for you right now. Number one is that they're calling station. They just overpay with any pair and any draw number two. They fold way too easily on the flop. Turn and that's awesome right because they're just super honest on one of those streets and because they play too many hands remember that veep pip is greater than twenty five percent and they defend away too often they defend it's on pre flop and so they they help you build a nice pot but they give up on the flop return super easily. Yeah that's a player to target one hundred percent right. You're printing money when you see flops against them.

I don't know if we can look at all in one hundred lifespans while Because what one one one reason is that what happens to us sometimes as we learn something but we only learned one aspect i encountered this years ago in in doing shadow work back in the nineteen eighties. I thought i had healed certain things but but they were still bothered when i looked at it again with the help of my teacher lately crystal. I realized i had healed the intellectual part but not address the emotional part When we talk about any of these skills there are many different levels and sometimes the thing that you still have learned as other levels of what you already know and other times. Just can't see what's there to be. Learn the concepts. I was taught back while back in the seventies In terms of the idea of the planes of existence is that you can see what exists on the plane.

"Back now to our conversation with nikola ripley. The executive director and nick core tens the curator of plant collections at the betty ford alpine gardens in vail colorado as we come back nikola shares more about the history and early founding of the gardens. And why and how this impacts all of us as gardeners and caring land stewards. So the goddamn was first started by a local nursery owner hugh who met sort of an entrepreneur. Philanthropist helen fritsch in about nineteen eighty five they met together and said that they had divisions four doing a public garden in vail and the primary reason for initiating. The garden was to show people in this new community. What kind of things will grow at eighty. Two hundred thousand people are moving in. The town was very new and people didn't realize that they could garden at eight thousand two hundred feet and they didn't realize what kind of plants they could grow so the initial vision for the gardens with to demonstrate celo local population that there are hundreds and hundreds of plants that not only will grow in that mountain environment. But really thrive in it. We say it's like being in a florus cooler that night. See you know the the plant stave vibrant looking really good for a lot longer than they would. Lower elevations the in the early days. That was the you know. the impetus for the garden in so in nineteen eighty-six. They formed an organization cold the veil alpine garden foundation and they did a garden. They were given a piece of land by the local authority. The town vail in front of the gerald ford amphitheater in ford park and they did a small cotton and showed the town. What kind of things that they would like to do in public garden in vail and it was very much not what the town expected. I don't think it was Rock garden with plants from the himalayas. And you know plants alpine plants from all over the world but it was beautifully put together and the town was very pleased and Offered the group a- lodger area to keep spreading and so in nineteen eight. They were starting on the next phase of the garden which was what we called the mountain perennial garden at that time and It was a decision was made to approach. Betty ford and say you know. This garden is developing in ford park next to the gerald ford amphitheatre. With your you love of gardening. We would very much likes to name the gardens in honor of betty ford and she was absolutely delighted and she joined the team that was starting the gardens and became a great spokeswoman for the gardens she would attend all of fundraising events and turned the first shovel of dirt in cottons and cut the ribbon to open them and it was to to have invitations to join president. Mrs flew in the gardens was was great boost to the group that was getting. The gardens started when president ford was in the white house. He used to come out to veils so often that they began to call vail the western white house. He loved skiing and was a big outdoorsman and They did so many things for this community and really fail on the map. And that's why there are so many things here named in their honor. They had an apartment here where they stayed in the wintertime and then eventually moved to beaver creek and spent their summers here. Once they were you know past enjoying the skiing. And so that i think takes us quite nicely back to you nick to tell us a little bit more about the scope of the gardens now and the collection you are rating And maybe a will start with that so looking back on the before and after pictures is quite dramatic being the trees that were planted only being five feet tall now being thirty to forty five feet tall and how open it was compared to two now and over the years. They have expanded the gardens dramatically. When i came here the rock garden had been built in two thousand but over the last eleven years expanded even more a new visitor's center education centre with an alpine house. we have about four new rock gardens. That were bill in the last couple of years. We're also hoping to expand into further parts of park while down the road but Yeah the collection has grown dramatically since its inception and each year lends itself to a new area. I think to improve on as gardens age so do the soda plants and so do trees get big and we wanna keep them the theme that we are a rock alpine garden but at the same time we want to appeal to all audiences that come here that do wanna see some perennials. And not just the alpine rock garden implant. So there's a fine balance of how many rock garden areas we should do versus kind of some of the more traditional perennial gardens as well but my favorite part is really building the rock gardens and using different types of rock to create a natural landscape fuel for these plants to live. And so it's really figuring out what what type of plants grow better in certain parts of the garden and then in the last couple of years we've really made sure to focus on curing a alpine's of the world collections. So we have several different rock gardens dedicated to regions of the alpine regions of the world. Such as the himalayas central asia alps south africa of course north america which is one of our largest collections specifically alpine's of colorado so the alpine's of colorado collection is really the big focus for me.

"I realized after about eighteen months. Since i was going to need a high degree to to really move up in the world i chose bangor university which is university college of north wales in just in snowdonia just outside the snowdonia national park I did Spent a couple of years in bangor studying ecology and did my thesis on the alpine plants of snowdonia which leads to doing some quit. The institution of terrestrial ecology based in bangor. Which is a british government research branch for ecology and started to work. More work called the alpine's of snowdonia. During that time. I saw a job advertisement with denver botanic gardens and penalty calamities who was then curator of the alpine collection. I applied for the position but by that time they had filled the job and but instead of throwing my resume away they send to talk to. Betty ford alpine gardens where they were in the early stages of developing the gardens and So i came out from england to work for the nursery that was growing the alpine plants for the gardens. It was a number of years before the gardens was hiring staff. So i continued to work for the nursery for a few years and then i had a job as environmental consultant locally doing environmental impact reports and a wetland delineations and then Was invited to become the director of horticulture with in the gardens. Which was the first time that a position like that In that was about two thousand and then in two thousand eleven. I became the director of the garden. Yeah i want to. Now move. Which i think is a perfect segue from from what you have just told us into a little bit of history of the betty ford alpine gardens. And i i want to have you start. Nikola with giving us some definitions. 'cause we use these terms and i think people have a general concept of them but not a very specific one in in many cases. Can you go ahead and give us a little bit of overview of the general idea of alpine environment or gordon. Both and then maybe give us a little bit of differentiation. Between the alpine environments you were experiencing in In the united kingdom and in snowdonia versus what you are experiencing there in vail colorado. So we define the alpine environments as the land above the trees. The land beyond the trees can grow. And what's very interesting to a lot of people is to realize that that's not just at a certain elevation that elevation changes depending on many different things but particularly on altitude and latitude so areas are very northerly latitude. All very salei in latitude can have alpine plants at much. Lower elevations right and so give listeners a sense of exactly what kind of elevation and geology. You are gardening in there in vail colorado. So we're at eighty two hundred feet here in veils so we're actually not in the alpine environment exactly in vail itself wearing the montaigne environment. The timberline in colorado is at around about eleven thousand feet depending on whether you're on a north facing slope or south facing slope so lots of things effect that exact treeline but generally speaking in colorado. It's about eleven thousand feet so at the gardens were in a beautiful setting and were surrounded by mountains all of which are alpine and rise up to fourteen thousand feet of in colorado mounted the holy cross is our closest fourteen thousand foot peak but we are in a very good position to be able to grow a.

Nick join me today to share more about their high elevation enthusiasm and efforts. Welcome to you both. Thanks very much looking forward to talking to you. This morning jennifer. I would love to get started by having both of you describe both your title and your role there at the garden. So nikola ripley. I'm the executive director at the gardens. I've been with the gardens for a long time about twenty years. I rose up through. The ranks came in as the director of horticulture Which i did for about ten years and then became Executive director ten years ago and my role at the gardens is to make sure that we have a good strategic direction. A work with the board of directors very closely. We have a fifteen men aboard. That is the visionary group for the cottons that helps us with fundraising and i work closely with them. To make sure that we keep in the right direction We have an updated strategy going forward on. I oversee the staff at the gardens and work closely. We have a wonderful team of people who enjoy working here and you know we. We work closely as a team gets me up in the morning is conservation work and to me. It's absolutely critical. Best botanical gardens play a role in connecting people with plants getting people to appreciate another stand plants and therefore to be interested in a rolling conserving. Them we focused particularly on the alpine environment. So as beautiful as the gardens are and i you know. I i know that most of the people who comes through the gardens enjoy them because they are beautiful place to be for me It goes much deeper than that. And the the role that we play in leading people to appreciate stand that want to conserve plants is what gets me up in the morning and into the office and nick. Let's move to you. Remind us of your title and your role there at the garden. And i want to ask you that. Same question of a distilled kind of mission statement or can northstar for what you do and why you do it has done for. My role is curator plant collections. And i have been with the gardens for. This is my eleventh year now like nikolai. Roseau rose to the ranks starting as an intern and then becoming a gardener horticulturist to the curator now my overall title is not just what i do. Every day as curator is creating the plans collections and growing. We wear many hats. nikola does to around the gardens. But what gets me up. In the morning to is to come in and and to see the plants blooming and learn something new every single day and to curate and maintain the best possible collection an alpine in rock garden plants in the united states. And if that may be the world so my vision is always striving to be one of the best alpine botanic gardens in the world. The overall idea that i have for my role is that we keep growing in our ever expanding species in the gardens and we aesthetically make it amazing for the public to enjoy every year. So i'd love to go back a little bit before we go forward and dig into the gardens themselves in their history and their future goals and get a little bit of history on both of you and a sense of where you were born in raised and the people and places in plants that grew you into people for whom these would be values and sources of great delight as well. And why don't we just go ahead and start with you nick. And then we'll move back to nikola. Tell us a little bit about your earliest influences. Oh well it begins sexually. Basically when i was born. I grew up a biodynamic farm in upstate. New york where i Was first exposed to vegetables and plants in waldorf education which really exposes kind of the curiosity of nature from early childhood. And from there. I really just kind of love being outside and after that wanted to do something with that when i graduated so then from there i went to school. Matt longwood gardens pennsylvania. And i went to school for their public horticulture professional gardener training program. So i went after high school in two thousand eight graduated in two thousand ten. It's a two year long Intensive program where we get hands on in classroom porticos training In possibly one of the best tanna gardens in the united states and then graduated in two thousand ten in march and came out here in may of two thousand ten where it was still snowing which was a huge surprise to me coming from the east coast and i had absolutely zero knowledge of alpine plants or rock art plants for that matter or west coast plans so it was a whole new world for me when i first moved here and i fell in love instantly. I always have been a big person. The mountains of big skier so this happened to be kind of paradise me a botanic garden in world class ski pound so i was instantly hooked great There's nothing like a may snowstorm in in colorado or june. Want so nikola. Let's move to you and same question. You know who were the the people and places in plants that grew you into a person for whom conservation would get you up in the morning and Maybe start with where you were born and raised and take us through your training that brought you to by ford. So i grew up in the north west of england in garden country relay but actually never was of net. Didn't spend a lot of time visiting botanic gardens growing up. My dad was a mountain climber. And so all of our holidays were spent out in the yorkshire dales and in the pennines of northern england. And i grew really to love mountaineering to love the plants that grew in the mountains. We spent a lot of time in scotland and the lake district climbing. And so got a loss of the british alpine's and that's how i got really interested in the environment and plants in particular. I went to the university of your contented. Degree in biology and my thesis was on plants of limestone pavements in northern england that led me to work with nature conservancy in the uk looking for sites of special scientific interest in the north yorkshire moors national park..

And i believe in support that sentiment but there's warping i would add to that you know and i know that that article perhaps is for business people right and so you have to meet people where they are or what. They're interested in to engage them in this conversation to begin with but empathy is also more than just you know leading a corporation or making the most prophets or designing the most relevant product. There are those are very important and can be lifesaving in certain situations but empathy is also vail finding the meaning of life because it is through empathy through finding discovering our connections. We realized that we are connected to something greater than ourselves. So there's more to that this life than just me and myself and my thoughts and what. I wanted what i don't want so there's more than more to the to empathy than just a tool for a leading teams and making profit and which are all true but there's also more to that. It's the deeper meaning right. It's the deeper meaning of why. Why why am i here. Why why is this organization here. You know what and those are all parts and pieces of that. Why question for sure. So i usually ask my guess What their definition of knowledge management is. But i feel that will might not be well-suited here but i want to helpfully translate that to maybe something more empathetic What is your definition wisdom now. My definition of business is being oneself learning about knowing yourself a quote like that or something any yeah any other comments or fragments that you wanted to say that you did. Not you've got time.

The fraud that Was not there have changed the outcome still. The elections weren't perfect. You know it is imperative that we pass all these laws to make the elections better And with less voters i guess would be a benefit But what she should have said was that over half of michigan. Republicans do not trust the elections because the detroit news poll found that fifty six percent of republicans believed there was widespread fraud but that sixty three percent of all michiganders' said that the presidential elections were fair and again. We'll have details in the show notes and again a republican you know not being truthful about the elections and just fanning the flames of distrust in our whole process which i think is going to bite him in the but eventually when people don't trust elections they don't vote while the people who don't trust the elections or republicans so live with it republicans in lansing.

Should You Spend Money Staking Players?

"Don't spend all your buddies thinking players. I think that's a whole nother conversation. I have some very unpopular opinions about that one. Yeah i've everybody that. I know that his had early success broker that has staked a lot of people have always lost a ton of money stating people. It's like a it's like such a low. It's such an obvious thing where there's opportunity feel like there's opportunity but you know asset on his show multiple times like the folks who need staking um for like any type of game. There's likely a reason why they need backing. There's a very. I used to accept backing. I used to sell action when like the bigger games when it sell action stuff like that. But i don't anymore. And i think if you need to be staked if you feel the need to be staked a mistake has been made your either playing too big or you don't have proper bankroll management or you're doing something you're stepping out of your element which is going to be a mistake in itself and there's nothing wrong shot taking. Don't mix those two but like you know if you need if you need to sell pieces of your action. then you're not a hundred percent confident in your own. Winning ways in there are opportunities. Right like i think there are that we need to speak about as it relates like really big gangs and the exceptional is going to discuss too. Yeah like berkey was just on the show and it's like okay. You're playing a game. Where like you could win a million in a session like you probably ought to have some investors probably ought to treat like like very few people who are actually rolled for black black chip blinds. Very very few. And that's like this is one thing you know if you're irregular you play five ten or you play quarter quarter or even a two five regulars well rolled if you get a chance randomly to plan some huge. Ask game with a bunch of wales. Obviously you're going to sell action. Obviously you should do that on a regular basis like you know. When i had a few times what what kind of markup would you take to sell action of your of your big game. You can't nothing zero like it doesn't work that way like i'm never going to give away pieces of my profit. We're not gonna do that. You know and nobody in their right mind is going to pay like two point three point oh markup in a cash game it's dumb never even heard of people charging markup for gas. That's has not i don. I hope it's not a thing. But i know there's plenty of people that call themselves pros out there that runs scams like that Back in the day. Like i remember very famous stories about like barry for players like selling pieces of themselves like ted gay and the investing getting together as like adding it up. Oh they sold two hundred percents himselves and then they busted. Clarke's do it all the time. I never heard about that until after he had died. But i had heard like apparently he was. He would do that all the time he would sell to. Three hundred pieces of two hundred three hundred percent himself in a bust on purpose. Mike oh my god like is just that. That's the thing that's that that certainly used to happen Back in today. I honestly i really think that. In a general sense not including the outliers of the one random big game you get sent it to. I think if you're selling your making mistakes honestly and tournaments that's a whole nother deal. I'm getting into that. We talk about that for hours. Yeah alike if you're selling pieces of yourself and your regular cash game. You're making mistakes that either. you're not. you're not a big of a winners. You think you are. You're not confident yourself or not bankrolled enough either way. A mistakes made that you are in control.

I was so fortunate so blessed to have nots and at the same time you know i still had to make it my choice. I still had to come to that free choice to know that this is my path. Like i feel like that's a true part of like the chamonix path or the healers journey is that you still have to make this conscious choice. Like even though it's written into your chart into your dna like it's it's party souls purpose. You know what you've brought. It's your gifts.

That was not the thing you know inclusion and being like everybody else was the thing so anyway Yeah it was really hard for me to actually take ownership and like i said to step into that and to claim that it was kind of like what they call it the equivalent of coming on the broom closet so you know and saying like hey world.

Today's podcast comes from the rogue valley metaphysical library. Welcome sharon and thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to thank you kid. I really appreciate this opportunity to share with you as well as your listeners. The parts of my book. That i think are really important to be revealed. That's great and i have to start off by saying i really enjoyed your book. And it's divided into eight sections and for the listener so they have a sense. This book is just uplifting at really fun to read. But it's easy torri because his she's sharon. You got a divided into eight parts. So i'm just gonna go through this briefly part one. I have so much to say. I hardly know where to begin. Part two releasing all beliefs part three truth always prevails are four if love was the only factor those in the afterlife would remain with us here or would remain here with us heart. Six our beloved pets which is really interesting parts. Seven hate part eight. If i i felt the presence of a pure that comes from debut in though so young and it's it's just a great book on many of the stories deal with the spirit that has a message for a loved one and you often refer to the ceases being on the other side of vail before really get into the book. I wonder if you would describe the process. What you go through or how the spirit comes to you and also if you could describe this veil that you mentioned i'm actually get. There are two veils. I call them the veil of forgetfulness. The first male is between the pre existence and our existence existence here on this earth. Playing the second vale is available between the earth and are moving forward into the paradise or heaven or to the next ram the veil is a thin membrane. And the reason why call it. Forgetfulness is because as we pass through we forget our previous existence and and the members there however when we pass through the second veil the veil that separates at the time of death are conscious soul christ consciousness. That of the experiences that we've had here does go with us to the other side. The consciousness of the brain being and the physical body that guys with the physical wadi show. We're taking with us those memories and those experiences with us. When repass the veil. I started experiencing this when i was a very young girl. My father was a logger and he was killed his catt turned over on magnon cala oregon and showed that was my first experience with death There's a feeling of abandonment. Masa that goes with this feeling and so questioning a wandering inquiries you know my irish five and my baby sister died. I was six when my second father passed. And so i kind of have grown up with this questioning as to wear. Bu you go you know so that was really important part of my life this unknown and wanting to know an and having the desire to shake out and find okay. That's i got something here. That is kind of the preface for part. Three truth always prevails. I'd like to read this because it talks a little bit. I guess of you where you're like. You just mentioned you're kind of coming from this. So this is this is As i mentioned the prophets part three. It's the importance of truth. Resides on both sides of the veil. Truth has a certain ring to it. Speaks to everyone. In fact most of us recognize truth in our gut. If you paused with what is being said and noticed a deep feeling residing within you will experience truth the feeling of peace or adult troublesome spoken statement will penetrate. You're very being. It brings a knowing of or awareness. There is a spirit in each of us helping us to unerringly determined truth from falsehood my truth. That would be you. Why truth. I have knowing i speak with those in the afterlife. I think that's a tremendous statement and one of the things that struck out to me about. This book is through so many of the of the stories about readings and meeting people and spirits is. There's about in this. Because i think for so many people they say i'll come on but reading the different stories. A lot of people were skeptics. And i wanted to ask you about that. What what is your experience meeting somebody. Who is i. Guess you would say on non believer. Actually i welcome that because most of the time that is orchestrated by a loved one on the other side that is wanting to make connection with this person. That doesn't believe and so when that happens in i'm there and that their loved ones shows up then i'm able to bring through the information that's pertinent to them. The message that needed to come through comes through for them and with they being able to experience what i have. Experience is confirmation invalidation. Which is why mediums do is to bring through the validation. The confirmation that life is eternal and only the individual having their personal experience with a loved one from the other side. Something that the medium would have no awareness of but could bring that through bearing witness to that family member that their loved one still continues to exist in the end the another rep and i know that a

"Back to the mailbag here. We have a great question from J in Vail. And Mark J says ever since he retired. He's had a really hard time spending money. Something about not having a paycheck makes him very nervous. And certainly he's not the only one to feel that way. And he wants to know. Does he need a shrink? Well, gee, I don't think you need a shrink. What I think you need is a financial plan to be perfectly honest with you. And this is, you know, we do financial plans for you know, obviously, for people who are planning retirement we doing for people who are already in retirement, such as yourself, and the one huge benefit is really understanding about all your investments. Maybe they're in different places. But the other thing, too, is understanding what you're spending and then setting up goals. Different things that you want to do. Whether it's travel. Maybe gifting money to charity. Is your Children? Grandchildren? Etcetera. You know all these different things that you may have on your bucket list that you want to do. And when we put a plan together for you, we can show you with a high level of confidence. Whether or not you're going to be successful so you can actually go out and spend that money or not, depending what the plan says. Based on what those results show, So instead of constantly worrying that you're gonna run the money that you're living off your investments now that you're not receiving a paycheck, which is a very common concern, I might add. You can actually live and enjoy your retirement. Knowing that you've done the planning and knowing that we've run the numbers showing you Hey, if you spend this amount of money based on your investments, and we take this much out Adding an inflation taking out taxes, etcetera, etcetera, looking at all the different pieces of your retirement puzzle, so you could do all the things that you want to do. You know, that's not always the case. Maybe run the plan and say, Hey, you want $60,000 a year. Maybe you can only live on 50 release. You know that. Or maybe there's some things that we could do to get you to 60. So it's having those different options and knowing it rather than living each year in fear of running out of money, which is not a Not an enjoyable retirement. I might I might think so, you know, happy to sit down with you and go through and show you what That process looks.

In the Weirdest Ski Season Ever, Big Resorts are Booming

"About this time of year most years a lot of people start dreaming about their upcoming ski trips but this year is possibly the weirdest year ever for skiers and snowboarders last year marked a turning point in which two giant conglomerates took over the ski industry in two thousand eighteen. Colorado private equity firm called k. s. l. partners got together with another investor and launch the multibillion dollar altera mountain company altera snapped up big-name resorts including steamboat springs mammoth resorts in california and deer valley resorts l. Terrorism enormous rival vail resorts went on a buying spree to last year. Veil the biggest ski resort company in north america continued scouring the country for acquisitions the bottom line. These dueling mega corporations as the wall street journal. Call them bought. Most of north america's top snow resorts and started selling ski passes that work at dozens of locations in twenty nineteen veils. Epic pass was good. At sixty nine different global resorts alturas icon. Got you into forty-one resorts from colorado steamboat. Ski resort to switzerland zermatt. The numbers climbed even higher. During the two thousand twenty ski season their strategies aggressive acquisitions and virtual multi mountain season passes allowed the to dominate the industry. If you're a ski company mogul the financial future. Looked amazing notice. I use the past tense. There there's not an industry exact who saw cove at nineteen coming or how it would devastate the industry last march. More than ninety percent of america's resort shut their doors abruptly as a whole. The industry lost about two billion dollars. According to the national ski areas association veils fiscal twenty. Twenty revenues fell thirty percent. Altera is privately owned but likely to affect the same pain so you might assume that. The outlook is pretty dark this season. Well you might be wrong. At production time vale. Stock price was close to a record high. Almost two hundred eighty dollars a share. That seems head-spinning. On the one hand you have an industry that relies on traveling and gathering together in a year when both restricted but so far the outlook for vail tara is far from that of a year without snow. Sales avail season passes of already surged twenty percent this year reports the colorado sons jason blevins. Why with indoor activities. Few and far between outdoor recreation of all kinds has skyrocketed moreover to comply with regional cova capacity restrictions. Some resorts are restricting. Day lift tickets. They're giving first dibs to. You've got it. Season pass holders vail now. Terra designed multi mountain. Ski passes as a way to make sales all year long and take a little of the sting out of paying the lift ticket window but now a season pass has become almost essential for snow lovers. If you don't have one you might not ski at all and even if you do you'll have to reserve your trip ahead of time. Once you're there the experience will be very different. Not surprisingly you'll have to social distance in lift lines at some resorts. You won't be allowed on a lift or gondola with anyone. But the companions you came with most indoor dining in bars or closed you may have to reserve a parking space and the resorts would prefer that you steal a day off mid week and skip that weekend skiing. These safety precautions are designed to keep ski resorts open and keep skiers and snowboarders lining up with their boots keys and wallet. If cova cases start climbing near your favourite mountain though it could all change overnight in the meantime we have a few words of wisdom for you. The intrepid skier be patient. Watch out on those double black diamonds and don't forget. Bring your lunch

Does the Community of Lily Dale Reconnect the Living and the Dead?

"In eighteen forty, eight, two young women known as the Fox sisters heard mysterious wrappings in their house in Rochester New York and claimed that they were messages from the spirit world. Enough people at the time believed the sisters that an entire new field known as spiritualism was born. Based in European, philosophic writings from previous centuries spiritualism was and is a structured belief that humans consist of a body, a soul, and spirit. When someone dies the belief goes the soul and spirit live on in a spirit realm. According to a study published in the Journal of Religion in Nineteen, thirty quote the chief duty of these spirits is to look after the welfare and progress of those on earth. Upstate New York at that time was already a hotbed of intellectual communities so hot that it was known as the burned over district for the nearly constant religious revivals took place they're. Just Smith the founder of mormonism got his start their. Literary and intellectual community of Chautauqua where feminist four mothers. Susan B. Anthony Hung Out was nearby. So in a way spiritualism that right in. In eighteen eighty, the Lily Dale spiritualist assembly, it was founded at the Eighteen Acre Casadei Lakes Free Association camp for spiritualist gatherings in nineteen O six. The whole community was renamed Lily Dale. Now, more than a century later, it sounds kind of weird and which he and campy but Lily Dale was incredibly popular in its early days. It began holding summer camps in the eighteen nineties that were well attended to put it. Mildly Susan B. Anthony was one of the many who visited to check out the mediums. A journalist working for the New York Times stayed in eighteen, ninety eight and reported that a quarter million people went to the tiny town every year. The reporter noted mediums as a class are strange beings. At the time of his visit mediums were charging one hundred dollars per session, which is about three thousand dollars today. Interestingly the price for reading is currently around eighty to one hundred dollars in today's dollars. He witnessed a few of the techniques that came to be associated with Lily Dale such as an ear trumpet that would rise from the floor and deliver a message directly into an attendees ear. Mediums Lily Dale also used a slate on which spirits could write messages. You may be surprised to learn the candles incense are forbidden at Lily. Dale. The buildings and the community are very old and very wooden, and it doesn't take a medium to know what will happen if there's an open flame. Well actually, they know very well, what will happen the Fox sisters original house was mood from Rochester to Toledo but went up in flames in nineteen, fifty five. Spiritualism declined in the twentieth century but Lily Dale remained a stronghold was summer camps continuing every year. For the past several years, attendance has also held steady at twenty, thousand, thirty thousand visitors going there in search of clarity indirection though this year visitor numbers were restricted to just eighty per day was social distancing and mask rules in place in addition to other precautions. A study published in the review of religious research in nineteen eighty found that only a small percentage of visitors. At that time, we're going to talk to a dead family member. The study's authors came to the conclusion that the kind of spiritualism practiced at Hillsdale was more like a religious sect than a cult. The difference being that sex are usually breakoffs from mainstream religions whereas cults tend to involve novel ideas. The study concluded that the mediums at Lily Dale might be doing people a service by granting them a level of peace and acceptance. The researchers wrote if spirit communication can be associated with madness, it's also possible to view the medium as a mental health resource. Whether people still visit, Lily. Vail. Today for clarity and direction or they want to make contact with the other side probably comes down to the individual. But since the nineteen seventies, the number of mediums and the population of lily male have soared. Back. Then the village was home to about twenty five to thirty mediums residents during the summer camps and a dozen or so who stayed on to keep up the town year round. Today under normal circumstances, visitors are welcome in the off season and Lily Dale has a year round population of two hundred fifty as well as the Post Office Volunteer Fire Department Library and playground there's also a coffee shop two restaurants a few gift shops some guest houses a hotel and museum. The National Spiritualist Association of Churches is located there. But members of the Lily del Assembly can lease houses in the community. But back to the mediums. Now, there are some forty registered mediums and all aspirants have to pass a test consisting of three readings before being established in the community. And they are still the main a draw. What are people are going in hopes of receiving or conveying a message to dad loved ones is totally personal and depends on their belief in the mediums abilities. Under normal circumstances, those interested don't have to pony up for a private session either there is a day use fee for anyone who wants to go and simply roam the streets and attend the public meditations and services, and you can visit inspiration stump where services have been held since eighteen, ninety eight. This year all workshops classes, and some circles were held virtually. One thing has not changed throughout Lily Tales history. The community has always emphasized sobriety humility and a decided lack of showmanship. They may appreciate a good pun but they take their work seriously. They also emphasized that the future is not written in stone everyone has free will.

Vail Resorts invests in massive Nebraska wind farm

"None of the thirty four ski resorts owned by Vail are in Nebraska but the company is investing in the states. Abundant wind-power. Vale has committed to buying three hundred, ten thousand megawatt hours of energy from the new plum creek wind farm in Wayne. County. That's enough to offset more than ninety percent of the electricity used at all avails. North. American resorts just give you an idea of scale to about thirty thousand homes worth power annually for twelve years. That's cates Wayne Wilson Fail Senior Director of Sustainability. She says, the power purchase agreement helped bring the wind farm online this summer. So for us, it's really important in our renewable strategy that we're bringing new renewables to the grid and the project takes Vail resorts close to the company's goal of zero emissions by twenty thirty, and we're really excited and proud of that, and we're also looking at the local level of how can we engage in solar and wind and other renewables on the ground where resorts are. She says for Ski. Company like Vale Protecting. The environment is a necessity. The great outdoors is our business and we feel like we've special obligation to protect it. So by investing in wind turbines in the Great Plains Vale is reducing the climate impact of its High Mountain Resorts.

How This Massive YouTuber Got Banned For Life

"Get back to. This leafy situation. So if you don't know who he is, Calvin Leafy is here Aka leafy Lee Vail can only be described as well. A drama Youtuber he started uploading in twenty thirteen and got popular around twenty fifteen for making videos about other content creators, their lives, their personalities, their various beliefs, and what he saw as wrong with them you really never know with youtubers one day they could be completely fine next fucking. Oil issues that youtubers can't cancer just sitting here like, yeah, I am cancer but the best fucking cancer on this website maybe he's most notorious video from that era is a now deleted video making fun of another smaller content creator who has a learning disability. It's safe to say that after that he established himself as a bill in pretty quickly that said, he did have a falling Levi's fans saws, videos just harmless jokes and before he got. Banned. He had almost five million subscribers on youtube around two thousand, seventeen leafy took a pretty long break from youtube and it wasn't until recently that he got back to making the videos, he was known for videos about other very dramatic content creators like h h three, Keam Star, and I dubs that said the story of his eventual banning started in July when he turned his attention to poke over the course of several videos, leafy criticize polk means. Content, her appearance and even went as far as to say that she was hiding a secret boyfriend from her fans and that's specific topic became so popular after his videos that the Hashtag pokey main boyfriend was trending on twitter and that prompted this joke from pokey main who said in the past that she's not interested in making her love life public on the Internet leafy spokesman videos all went viral and around that time pokemon announced that she'd be. Taking a long break from streaming and content creation in general, and then recently pokey released an apology video discussing topics that range all the way back to twenty eight eighteen. But she did talk about some of Leakey's criticisms directly. Specifically, her relationship status and comments about her appearance if video is to address freezing comments, criticisms that I perceived I know this video is long overdue. I've seen a lot of people talk about the way that I look recently. There's WanNa. PUT It out there. I don't think I'm the prettiest person in the world. But I think that's okay everyone's entitled to an opinion I personally made the decision seven years ago whenever I got into streaming that I don't want my personal life to the part of my content and that's just what I'm GonNa stick by until I and whoever I'm dating whatever time decide otherwise that video was released on August eighteenth and then three days later on August twenty first Levi's entire youtube channel was gone. Now you choose policy when it comes to violating the rules Is very similar to twitches that we talk about all the time on this show it's three strikes, and then you're at each of the first times violated a policy you get one, and then the third time the channel is just deleted. Youtube cited quote multiple severe violations of Youtube policy prohibiting content designed to harass bully or threatened end quote as the reason for Levi's ban according to tweet from slasher. Now, when the story about lease Van I broke, there was some speculation about. Whether or not he was notified. But as I two strikes at all a representative from Youtube told Julia Alexander a report from the verge debt quote, his channel was terminated because it violated the company's harassment policy three times over a period of ninety days. No specific videos were identified, but they did confirm its permanent when I asked specifically about length of Ban and quote on August twenty first after he was banned leafy tweeted a youtube asking how he could get his account reinstated. In response to the news another Youtuber Cabos tweeted that leafy had never been notified about his first two strikes at all and that his account had just been banned out of knowing leafy himself also claimed keep never been given any strikes in a later comment that said back on June fourth leafy actually tweeted that he'd received two strikes on his account for harassment. There have been some people commenting that those strikes were reverted but that hasn't been confirmed by leafy himself or Youtube. On August twenty fourth leafy tweeted this still looking for his account to be reinstated. And when team Youtube responded, he had some choice words as recording this video leafy channel still nowhere to be found on Youtube and he's actually started to stream on twitch. So I, guess he's trading places but dr disrespect. Now with this whole story mind it's worth noting that Youtube has recently made massive changes to its policy requirements for users. Specifically, the way that content creators are supposed to treat other content creators. issue. In, many different ways and I think we have seen many we've seen some high-profile examples that we know have been Alec and that has caused us to take really hurt look at our harassment Halsey as I'm sure many of you know since like the beginning of time, one of the easiest ways to become popular on youtube is to make you videos about other youtubers. This is specifically true about what we would call drama content where creators be for call each other out. An extremely cringe boxing matches. With. That said, this latest situation involving leafy really seems to show that Youtube is taking stuff seriously and trying to figure out what's fair game the what constitutes harassment at this point with this story I? Think we're just GONNA have to wait and see if Lee will ever get back on Youtube if he'll be able to stay on twitch and if this new stricter policy is going to have long term implications for other creators as well.

The first time in what one, two, three, four wakes down two point, two, five percent, and like I sort of hinted or touched on last week there is potential full further downside I try to get back to ten thousand wouldn't be out of the wouldn't stretch it. It's it's still had a very big moment. Now's extended on those moving averages massively, but it has you know I. It is outside of those moving averages. Snap back or pullback.

Breakout through the hive yesterday, which is only eleven seven to five that much are a little bit more strength. A bitcoin suddenly have that four hour trend. Looking much more bullish and I'm hopeful to say that today and give us some conditions for further upside throughout the wake. Across the market, many of these markets have. Indeed had a pullback and opportunities may present themselves. So that those, it know how to trade the cradle pullbacks on that to date going to have a little bit customer scan. That's what I liked. The most others noise little to date candle for the moment. Eleven thousand, six, hundred, thirty, four on. Bitcoin right now theory look I said on that some. Tonight's back into weeklies very extended three, hundred, ninety dollars and eleven cents down point two percent loss weight. We saw pullback GNAWING, ten percent.

I don't really like anything about this the right now. To the long saw potential for shorts guy. Is still going to get better clarity for me though at this moment in time one, only three right now on the. Don is also come off. When I look at this way, we've had the most bearish weekly across all these lakes, the moving average. The ten has now cooled back up the price. We down twelve point, six, percent loss were sitting at twelve cents flat. And A MACHO SIPA MAY ON COW Donna. Barnett's lost week pullback seven percent. That trend is still very much emotion there on that weekly I do like the look of it to be fair I just needed to do a little bit more to twenty one dollars ninety three rot now.

Bunny sounds like you're on the road man just just let us know how much time you got. We got. We got some questions for you today. We make it happen. I everybody. Knows Bun the the big thing that everybody knows about you man of course as you G K, and since the beginning you guys have read Port Arthur Texas. Oh, you know not only Port Arthur but you had spent time a lot of time in childhood is in Houston also rep Houston real heavy but tell us a little bit about de growing up in port. Arthur where you're from in the experiences in, PORT ARTHUR IN HOUSTON. as you know you listen I'm not sure if they know not you know put up very small. Industrial town is out of the sexist. Population varies I guess between fifty and fifty, five, thousand depending on the time you check. Build around all refineries You know put out there Bouma. both sprouted up, do this spindle top. So You know pretty much all the small towns in that area surrounding spending time. dairy pretty much facilitate life for the people who worked at the refiners, and so it was it's a blessing and a curse because as a blessing provided a lot of jobs and opportunities in the early days but. If you don't have. Really a Give up you don't work for the refineries for a company that facilitates the refinery and finding good sustainable work can be difficult. A lot of our eggs are in the same basket here. Definitely the we're we're tied to that that oil and gas you know here in Port Arthur. So you know someone with with as much talent as yourself. There's not many opportunities. So you know you had to look the places in thankful that. You know you had connections in Houston and was comfortable moving around in a big city in in making connections. Yeah. I spent a lot of my early years and he's been going back and forth unfortunately I was I was born in Houston but then my parents divorced my mother moved to put because a lot of her family that weren't in Louisiana or Houston when living input and she just wanted a breadth she and. Her aunt. My Grandmother's younger sisters was very close in age with my Mama Mama. Can I born and so they had a very strong relationship and so my mom moved to Port Arthur because there were structure there for But as I got older and started, you know wanting to find my way in the world specifically with entertainment right product didn't afford me any of those opportunities. So you kinda add to go to the big city to make your bones. So to speak but you know I've. been a big part of the culture music. Wise. So we kind of knew where to look and started trying to touch base with stuff but our connection added came on the flute. We were actually in Houston shopping, and so we went to kings flea market on the south side. And just. So happened that there was a guy there named Russell. Washington who had A. Record store but was actually looking for talent So we drove spanked of Houston and wind got the demo tape and then brought it all the way back to. HOUSTON. To store. Let him here a few songs He fell in love with the earliest thing earliest edit of. Debbie something good. which featured more than just me and Tampa. By this time, we ended up putting it out. It was only Tampa. And from that point on I get, the rest is history. Man, in history you've made definitely you know let's take real quick take it back. Just a little bit of the way we Mitt was was something unique in not I'll never forget it. I was a freshman in high school and we had a class together theater and your last name was Freeman and my last name was Freeman and we've got to talk and one day I. Think I told you that my dad was from Ville Platte and you said you'd from Vail plant and you say, well, my dad's from veal platinum next thing you know I think you went check Some of the lines and I went check some of the family lines and sure enough we were kin and from then on man I I just. I've already. Thought you were intelligent. One of the most intelligent people I've met even in my forty four years that I've been on this earth man I told you such a high regard. But from that point Oh man I watched you in and you've always been a motivator a trendsetter and you've left breadcrumbs for somebody like myself that can follow if you have ambition if driving I've always appreciated what of the people that hit us on facebook you know put something out there earlier was like. Man I'm getting ready to go online with gun right now we're doing the free world pie cast any questions and we'll take one questions and somebody they hit us up was big Jack. So Big Jackson Holler at you man said what's up and I was thinking about big Jag being in the same class with us you big Jack and I think Nolan Davis. And your cats were I just looked up to you guys so. Jackson was up man but that was the beginning days g K. so that was did. With. Big Time or how big time come about. Is that well, they came from that initial day of going to the market you know and we came to the agreement that. We are open to working with him and you know we were very young industry. We didn't really know anything as far as easy business and he didn't either like he came in from a retail aspect, but he always had a really good ear for music and You know he was the one that out of all the stuff that tell me something good was actually one of the oldest on. That we had in the catalogue at that time. So we brought him everything that we had, and he listen to some of the newer stuff which would have been like cocaine tobacco. The ride would have been part of that as well. but he was like, yeah, I mean. It's cool but they the tell me something good that that. Like I said he had yet amazing. You know yeah. No maintenance here for that kind of thing man shot big Joe me and Jack was. down. With each other and Nolan of course, normal ones you know probably one of my closest friends in school and the funny thing was with working with Nolan like Nolan I both kind of woke up when Bain was like. Let's go sign up for the navy. and. So we went we went there today we went to the naval officer assigned everything, but we didn't take the oath and then like a couple of weeks later, we were like Joe. I don't think that's what we. And they tried to they tried to Pigeonhole as into it and you know I tested very high tested like ninety, seven coadjutor. So their their whole day for me was like we WANNA. Thank you get college and we also WanNa put you basically on a nuclear submarine bike. So we want to college. To understand how to you know work in that field like engineering. and. Then put you on a nuclear submarine and. I Love Water I love this women all of the idea of. Underwater. For my dad time that was that was not what I was about that was not what I wanted to do with my life. So we had the we realize that like the easiest way to get out of that would have been to get scholarships. So that's when no letting I really started focusing heavily on drama and ended up getting Scholarships back in the Senate. And that kind of the way of of getting them like off of our. Of Our case at the time, and then after that, we decided that that wasn't. So. We were young kids bad. You know we you know. Thank God. We had options in life. we but we just didn't know what direction we wanted to go to at that point and and at that point I I really started to fall in love with the idea of of making music right so much that I loved theater. I just realized that wasn't necessarily path I wanted to take, and it's funny because music kind of brought me back around to that because being. Pop? Culture. I've actually been in a few feature films I was in the dirty third I was in This movie called. Video girl where I actually went meagan. Good. It's just the Maya good and Ruby Dee and I had like one on one team would ruby dee I Rueda de basically beat me up in the movie.

Something I'd love to get your thoughts on to what I've seen in bit is, is they small indie studios may make say one mobile game it'll explode it'll go huge but then they really struggled to get that follow up game. Is there a lot of pressure from these studios? Maybe they've gained investment off the back of their previous success in the being pushed like you need more than a one hit wonder. I think the win seats in never run in the studio a who is being on the publisher side of the investor side or the executive produce aside so. It's a very difficult business Tell you want I you know it's like being tennis. You have one federer you have one the dog. Thousand Meetings of. Or? So people tend to look at one. Success Rightly, I would say, but visit outs look at these guys we have invested X. and they've met in one meeting thunder. In your yet but so it's great but don't forget. You have one fitter one dollar, your nuggets of Denny spares in the world. So you have. Millions of studios but drivenow studios. We didn't make it. So you have to be very mindful of act and then I would say the of issue. With the to studio that I've found is, is guys deb's in big gain of Utah everything inside the game in before you also did some marketing daughters, your some hours. So He's what received a lot of example than you know, sad stories for studios and great stories above issues where you know. That has invested more than. Adding to the game and the students Vancouver's do better but they don't have the mind to finish Beta on investing marketing issue with somebody was the money we physically speaking up though the project. So it's very, it's a, it's a very difficult situation in. What's going to do the Tories? reconized that than trying to out drank to basically. Bring product to some products to the market, but it's very difficult to. The point is once you have the game, usually the sequel is easy because you have a young money flowing obscene. Experience situation. So you don't have enough problems on after two years or three years at you like, okay. What do we wanted to?

Big Tech CEOs Testimony Before Congress

"Today was the day as I record these words the big tech CEO's are still testifying before Congress. So I'm going to have to do a summary of what I've seen just in the first couple of hours or so and leave some of the juicier question and answer back and forth for tomorrow. I up a note on the format that we've been seeing. Yes. All of the CEOS were testifying remotely. They were using Cisco Webex as the video conferencing tool and it seemed to work fairly well at least right until this very moment as I turned off the stream to go into the booth to record this, they took a ten minute recess because apparently one of the witnesses. was having an issue with their stream or feed, and I'm wondering if it might have been Jeff Bezos because at least thus far were almost an hour and a half into the testimony and he hadn't been asked a single question. Anyway back to the whole idea of testifying remotely if I were going to do one of those rate, my video call backgrounds reports. Bezos look like he was in some sort of executive boardroom, lots of tasteful Chomsky's behind him. Look like he was in a conference room at a high end law firm I couldn't tell what Zuckerberg was sitting in front of it looked like closed vertical blinds almost like I don't know some sort of like a bunker like if you're battening down your house for a Hurricane Tim, Cook was in front of some sort of tasteful plant trough though he was clearly working off an ipad pro. Let's start off with what the Fab four had to say in their opening statements. Amazon's Jeff bezos underscored Amazon's job creation, its investments in social causes and its role in supporting small and medium-sized businesses. And made the case that Hey Amazon is just a tiny competitor in a huge global market quote. The global retail market we compete in is strikingly large and extraordinarily competitive Amazon accounts for less than one percent of the thousand five, trillion dollar global retail market and less than four percent of retail in the US unlike industries that are winner take all there's room in retail for many winners for example. More than eighty retailers in the US. Alone earn over one billion dollars in annual revenue like any retailer we know that the success of our store depends entirely on customer satisfaction with their experience in our store every day Amazon competes against large established players like target Costco Kroger and of course, Walmart a company more than twice Amazon size, and while we have always focused on producing a great customer experience. For retail sales done primarily online sales initiated online are now in even larger Growth Area for other stores Walmart's online sales grew seventy four percent in the first quarter and customers are increasingly flocking disservices invented by other stores. Amazon still can't match at the scale of other large companies like curbside pickup and in store returns and quote alphabets. Soon, Darpa, Chai, said that Google also operates in a highly competitive. Market and that it's free products benefit the average American quote. A competitive digital ad marketplace gives publishers, advertisers, and therefore consumers an enormous amount of choice pichai stated, for example, competition and ads from twitter instagram comcast and others has helped lower online advertising costs by forty percent over the last ten years with these savings pass down to consumers through lower prices in areas like travel and real estate Google faces strong. For search queries for many businesses that are experts in those areas. Today's competitive landscape looks nothing like I. Did five years ago let alone twenty one years ago when Google launched its first product Google search people have more ways to search for information than ever before and quote. Tim Cook of Apple said that the APP store has opened the gate wider for software developers. Also, apple doesn't have dominant market share quote as much as we believe, the iphone provides the best user experience. We know it is far from the only choice available to consumers Cook said after beginning with five hundred APPs today the APP store hosts more than one point seven, million, only sixty of which are apple software. Clearly, if apple is a gatekeeper, what we have done is open the gate wider we want to get every APP we can on the store, not keep them off and quote. And facebook's mark. Zuckerberg said well, but he said a thousand times before that facebook knows it has more work to do on things like fighting misinformation and that you know companies aren't bad simply because they're big. And he took pains to point out that facebook is an American success story quote although people around the world use our products. FACEBOOK is a proudly American company. He said, we believe in Values Democracy Competition Inclusion and free expression that the American economy was built on many other tech companies share these values, but there's no guarantee our values will win out for example China. Is Building its own version of the Internet focused on very different ideas and they are exporting their vision to other countries as Congress and other stakeholders. Consider how antitrust laws support competition in the US. I believe it's important to maintain the core values of openness and fairness that have made America's digital economy, a force for empowerment and opportunity here and around the world and quote. In his opening remarks, the chairman of the Committee David. Sy-. Selena Rhode. Island. Laid out three areas of inquiry that the was scheduled to delve into at least in questioning from the Democratic Congress folk more on that in A. Quitting CNBC, each platform allegedly serves as a quote bottleneck for a key channel of distribution and quote the platforms allegedly used their control over digital infrastructure to Sir Vail other companies, their growth business activity, and whether they might pose a competitive threat and use that information to maintain their own power and third the platforms allegedly abused their control over current technologies to extend their power through tactics like self referencing their own products. Quote. Prior to the cove nineteen pandemic, these corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. Silly said in the wake of Covid nineteen however, they are likely to emerge stronger and more powerful than ever before, and he concluded by saying quote, our founders would not bow before a king nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and quote? But as I say, while this was labelled as an anticompetitive antitrust inquiry, it seems like the Republican Congress folk were primarily interested in probing alleged bias against conservative users. In fact, Jim Jordan. One of the ranking Republican representatives spent most of his opening remarks railing against. which if that continues would basically be exactly what all of the CEOS in the talking head boxes would be hoping for right lots of distraction and no real spotlight on them. In fact, a lot of the most heated questions directed at a company that's not even present. We'll see if that continues but I have to say straight off Chairman Sicily and was very specific targeted sharp questions. He kept interrupting folks when they started to stray into doublespeak and the very nature of the questions from him and others at least so far. This wasn't like previous congressional hearings we've covered where the congress folk didn't seem to even understand the businesses they were investigating, and maybe that was because I don't know if you saw the woman sitting very prominently very obviously behind Mr. Cecil lean. Let me let the Washington Post fill you in on who that was quote as a twenty eight year old law student Lena Con penned a twenty four thousand word article for Yale Law Journal titled Amazon's antitrust. Paradox. The article described how US antitrust law isn't equipped to deal with tech giants such as Amazon. Even as the company has made itself as essential to commerce in the twenty first century in the way that railroads and telephone systems had in the previous century con now works as counsel for the antitrust subcommittee she has worked with Sylvain to develop his case against the tech giants including Amazon and quote. As I said, the questioning is continuing as I speak these words in fact I just heard that they came back from their recess. The whole thing did kick off hour late only getting started at one PM, eastern? So I don't think it'll be done before for five PM at least. So again, I'll put together a summary of all of the juicy exchanges happening now for tomorrow.

MLB Players' Strange and Inspiring Hobbies

"So first of all. What's the latest on the negotiations to get baseball? Backup running. So there was a pretty extensive ammo seventy page protocol document by MLB that was presented to the Players Association on Friday. It's very clear to things to me. One the League is taking the health and safety of their players very seriously and to this is not going to be normal baseball as we know it. Everything from you know the fact that they're going to have the hand sanitizer between innings. A ball is touched by too. Many people. It gets changed out to the lineup. Cards now usually the managers or coach come over and they present it to the they meet with the other team all of this is going to be done electronically so while we may have baseball. Twenty twenty It is going to be different. It's not going to just be no fans. There's a lot that's going to go into this. And there's a lot Surrounding the teams in the players that they're going to be held accountable for in order to pull off something. That's this big this ambitious. And how likely do you think it is? That will have major league baseball by the first week of July. I think we will. I think it's become increasingly likely because I think both sides stand to lose a lot right. You're talking about billions of dollars. When the owners concerned players will get a small fraction of their salary of there's no season I think the baseball should look at it as listen. You have a chance to be the only sport going on right now. You have a chance to captivate an audience and to expose baseball to people that otherwise just simply wouldn't watch it. You saw what happened with that. Michael Jordan documentary. The LAST DANCE. You saw how it became really a fabric of our culture was all anyone was talking about and part of it was it was Michael Jordan but a big part of as well as the fact that there was nothing else going on and I think baseball if they don't get something going really misses the opportunity and misses the chance to continue to grow and build. Its audience this year. Money aside so I do think there's a lot of motivation for everyone to see some form of baseball in twenty twenty. Well let's get to the importance of here. Brit what Major League baseball players have been doing with all the extra time on their hands. And let's start with Orioles. Outfielder Anthony Santander. Here's the one to deliver on the way that balls tagged way way back. They turn around and look at the Vail and goodbye homerun to homer inning Venezuela players kind of emerged for the Orioles. He's a guy who fans have kind of taken. A little bit of particular liking to is not afraid to express his personality. Remember that I saw Miguel Carrera. He play winnable My CD against thought Gino's and that's why it's my favorite player. He became sort of strangely famous last year. During this incident at Camden yards involving some British fans this was just a regular August game against the Blue Jays. And what happened was more than four thousand. Uk Fans were in attendance. They become kind of enamored with Santander. And what you have. Is this large group dressed in orange absolutely going nuts with anything and everything? He's doing all the left again. Tandare back on. Let's shape gets an applause. Wonderful two feet. He's favorite player. I mean he was smiling. He was shaking his head kind of getting rid from teammates about the whole fan club. He threw a baseball into the stands at one point. Kind of giving one of them. Lucky Souvenir just for minds you again. How Fun Baseball be? So what has the terming? Anthony Santander ben up during lockdown. So he has been up to playing the harp or vans. This time I contract the rest to continue my daily routine which is learn how to play this beautiful instrument now this sounds super random right except it is a very popular instrument in Venezuelan music. So it's a part of their culture and you know he has to make sure his fingernails or a certain length. This requires hours and hours of practice. I don't know anything about the this instrument I don't know how to play it. His hope is that he can play a song when this is over. Four fans on the harp with this time with a baseball. Have the commitment to learn how to play it so come every single day. I lease for two hours so hopefully next year I can be able to play a song for you. Guys GonNa give my best to be ready for that time. I think he did not realize how hard the harp was. I'm not a musical person per se but I think when you look at instruments to learn the harp has got to be in the upper echelon when it comes to difficulty A lot going on with the fingers lock goes on the wrist a lot of intricacies that. I don't think he was immediately aware of when you have decided to take this project on.
