Fresh update on "verizon" discussed on Adventures in Finance: A Real Vision Podcast
"Analogy to go back and talk about the bigness part At and t. Where you were working. You know where i live right now i think it was. Cfp telephone. When i was growing up. I grew up in the dc area so he became bell. Atlantic 'bout land came together with You know Nine x and then they became a verizon. Essentially you have like a proto Eighteen t reformed. I mean. how's it even in the in the world that we're talking about the regulatory structure the antitrust structure that we have. At and t. Was told to break up into the arbox in here. We are They're basically reconstituted in various forms. Yep you're exactly right. Ed i must tell you it just warms my heart that you can name all those names and you know all that history. The somebody people don't or don't care but it's very illustrative history. 'cause you're exactly right full circle we're kind of back to where we were before in terms of. At and t. However at and t. now is diminished in many ways because it faces so much more intense competition. And i think competition is always the answer to power lines and tricia so and that's why people talk about breakup because if you can as these companies have if you can acquire every competitor and you can swallow up every competitor. Then eventually there is no constraining force at and i think competition is always a constraining factor. So i would always think about the break-up mentality as how do we create once again real competition in industries so that there is a checkered balance on growing power. Run at the very good. I mean and i almost would like to go further on this conversation But i'm going to stop because you one thing that was given short shrift to hear. You made a comment way. Back about The strip club analogy and I i made her the years ago but it is incredibly It is incredibly disturbing a as an anecdote makes me think about the glass ceiling and women in business and comments that you might have about that. Can we talked about. How is it that we make some changes in that that.

Fresh update on "verizon" discussed on Sean Hannity
"Every restaurant shut down in New York City. How do you possibly bring that city back to life? He's wiped out 12,000 restaurants, small businesses in New York City. Uh, I think the latest number is 47%. Small businesses are still closed in New York City can't reopen. He's been a total disaster. Revenue is down. 60% in New York has got the biggest exodus going if he tries to raise taxes. Yeah, I mean, the fact that he went to Washington big for 50 billion last week shows you how bad a governor is. Let me point out also, though, that Schumer, one of Shawn's favorite people, is marching around the state bragging about this restaurant bill that he claims to be part of the stimulus Bill $25 billion in aid for restaurants, but read the fine print is I did just a few minutes ago, and the fact is white owners. White men, for the most part, have to go to the back of the line. This money on it's a lot of money is reserved for minority owners of restaurants and women owners of restaurants as if all owners of restaurants aren't struggling, struggling during this time. You know, I feel so sorry. I mean, you look at these people. I mean, these are lively hoods, people and some restaurants. Mark. I mean, that have been there Landmark restaurant's closing down left and right all over the place. You're the only why should we do with racist and sexist legislation to help them?

Interview With Kfir Yeshayahu
"Our guest. Today is kafir yahoo. Who's the senior vice president of products. Advair atone so high kefir on. Thanks so much for joining us today. One it's gonna be with you today the We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at their tone of course so under the product invade on of busy building. I will which is the alternative system for high as well as accompanying tools to really solve some of the toughest problems in adoption today. In general one of those challenges that were focused on is open holder tising. Ai which is a fascinating topic for me. Having started with data science many many years ago. I've seen how data science was done in some of the most sophisticated data organizations in the world back in the israeli intelligence community. And i've been living the sort of evolution mini revolutions fe. I ever since in loud companies like microsoft and has of groups in the and others before joining the verizon i managed devops oriented boorda in. Aws the amazon cloud so my perspective on 'em at all is coming from both sides from day iside and Devops and now. I'm saying that the dan's in the space who both the perspective of on itself. And i don't own business units as well as Without many customers of the iowa who are in various stages of the junk. That's really very insightful. Because we've been definitely spending a lot of time talking about machine learning operations. Emily obstinate model management. And all these things that have you have to deal with once. The model is as building. People tend to think of of sort of all the work that has to go into training a model making the model happen which is definitely a lot of work. No doubt about it especially even the data preparation even before even build the model right. That's a lot of work but now that you know these models are out there in the wild in in production people are realizing the challenges of keeping these models relevant and high performance. And just doing what they're supposed to be doing. So maybe you could talk to us about what you see. Some organizational challenges as they tried to bring machine models into production of course so different studies and surveys though talking about some little between fifty to ninety two why blamed but fifty two nine hundred projects. Don't actually make it phone. Put that to production regardless of where you fall in the way. It's a pretty sad ratio. Now what makes it even wolves. Is that a project. Take a long time to demand often six months to a year. And you know they'll be walked by Most expensive in the organization we invade have experienced the same thing in the past the first day i projects and applications developed by our business units to literally month to complete. Now we're looking at fox and the stakes were sometimes too high to even start. The border. don't going directly a question about challenges until recently. A lot of the buzz in the industry was about talent shouted. I think this issue is is going away. The market is is balancing itself and good talent is coming from all sorts of different defections into the will. it did not cheap way more accessible than before. The challenges didn't have shifted in my opinion from talent gaps to both insistent cups. And i'll try to gonna show that in four different buckets. So one of them is is portions. How do i estimate the ally often. Ai project how do i define the budget endgame. That's very different than than traditional software projects. Why d- projects the second bucket is integration applications and and solutions in genoa. Now this may sound of sideways from from but it's out of the whole challenge of production izing. How with to play with the application. This is interesting for me especially from extent point because naive. Boches don't always walk because of the nature of the modern. They'll give you one of many examples. Ai models often produce results with degrees eleven of confidence.
T-Mobile has a new 5G wireless plan
"You're obviously going to hear a lot more about five g this year as the major wireless carriers continue to make those networks available to more consumers among them is t mobile which just revealed details on a new plan coming up. Yes indeed yet. T. mobile's announce a new magenta. Max plan which takes place of the magenta plus plan and it will cost about the same that that plan had which was about fifty four dollars per line a month for three line plan but for a limited time you can sign up for a three line plan. That is about forty seven dollars per line per month that includes all taxes fees when you use auto pay now a single line under the magenta mex plan costs eighty dollars but each additional added brings down the overall auto pay costs forty seven dollars under the current promotion and this plan is also available for small businesses can cover up the twelve employees. Now why would you wanna do this. If you already have a plan or on another carrier t mobile says its new unlimited five g and four g premium data plan. That data will not be slowed. No matter how much data you use. Now why would you wanna do that. If you already have a plan or on another carrier t mobile says its new unlimited five g and four g premium data will not be slowed. No matter how much data you use under this new plant competing unlimited plans may temporarily slow data after certain milestones reached. Now with this new plan. You also get more hotspot data forty gigabytes up from twenty gigabytes of the current plan. You get the stream. Four k video and previously hd and several other features including free scam blocking and caller. Id new customers who do not have a five g phone can trade in the current phone and get a new five g. Won t mobile's twenty four month interest. Free plan t will also let customers on other plans bring their five g phone over and pay off up to six hundred and fifty dollars of existing payments for that phone without any switching costs. So can i just say if i hear another service that uses the word plus max to describe itself. I'm probably gonna pull what's left of my hair out. I feel like every single service of late is a plus max. There have to be other words but anyway so we're seeing five g roll out. Obviously how good is it right now. So bread is still far from being available everywhere. Here in northern. Virginia i get five g connectivity on on the verizon iphone have and also on the samsung t mobile phone i use but around the us t mobile currently covers more than two hundred and eighty million americans with its five g network but just more than one hundred million with the super fast speeds that get you to the three hundred gigabytes per second range now in comparison with traditional phones. Use four g lt. You're lucky to get fifty megabits per second. Now t mobile said it plans to reach two hundred million this year with the super fast speeds in recent tests run by open signal from for the month of january t mobile users connected to five g. Almost one third of the time thirty percent eighteen five g users connected eighteen percent of the time and verizon connected nine point five percent now. These are all improvements for the month of january according open signal. What's tests five g around the country. The good news is that typically t. mobile's actions lead to movement by the competition so all consumers might be seen better deals and kind of in the days ahead. I'll
Robocalls back on the rise
"In january alone there were more than four billion robo calls targeting in the us tarring phones across the us. So that's a one hundred and twenty nine point five million every single day. That's an increase of three point. Seven percent over the month of december. According to you mail which is a company that provides anti-rebel call services. So we're talking about robocalls now because we're getting in the numbers from last year and everything and we're seeing that even though rebel calls were down slightly in two thousand twenty. They're still higher than they were three years ago. And what's happened is during the pandemic some robo call centers had to shut down because they didn't want her sick evidently With guess smart but they appear to be opening up. And that's why the calls you're on the rise again now. Unfortunately this robocall barrage has led me to just not want to answer the damn phone. You know about ninety. Four percent of unknown calls go unanswered. That's what higher found in. Its survey a recent survey of two thousand consumers and three hundred business professionals now. That's not good if we're not going to answer the phone that's not good for legitimate businesses. Because they just have to keep calling you know about a doctor's appointment or car servicing or whatever so anyway that so there's some weird repercussions happening with all the with the robocall situation. Speaking of the kind of scam calls you get You talked about the car. Warranty the car warranty is really is up there in the most likely scam calls. You got in twenty twenty. It's number two behind social security calls. Then there's auto warranties in credit cards bluefin then health insurance in student loan forgiveness and then calls about it's their the irs which of course they're not They're also were timely. Because of the pandemic and the and the governmental programs with that there were calls about unemployment covid nineteen and stimulus checks now. The good news is that agencies like the fcc in the tc of crackdown on big rebel. Callers and new technologies are to be implemented by call providers By june of this year. But in the meantime you know if you want to try to cut down on some of these robocalls your wireless provider has protection. You just go into your phone and figured out or go onto the website and and see pretty much. Everyone has some protection. I have verizon. And i have a call blocker and since my wife is susceptible to these kind of calls. I paid more for. Call the call filter plus services for her also online the companies. I mentioned haya. Hi and you mail both have mobile apps you can use. And they'll be links to those in story Dot usa today commented rebel calls anyway. Unfortunately you know. In the future rebel collars scammers are always going to try to pivot but maybe those apps and better technical will make us less afraid of our phones. Yeah the one thing i worry about more is the spam text. You know i. It's not as it doesn't seem as prevalent as the robo calls for myself personally. But i have noticed more now that we're getting texts spam tech's now and i start to worry that's going to be the next frontier. Where if these scammers start to get wise about people that answering their phone her robocalls getting crackdown on more aggressively than we're just gonna start getting them in text form a lot more often. Probably likely. I know i've gotten i. Don't get a lot of those. A lot. More phone calls than tex. But i do get things that look like what i assumes can be a scam and i ignore it too so yeah think you're
This startup is making customized sexual harassment training
"Is raising money. And i think this is a really cool company and i want you to tell us all about it. Athena raised money in june with two million round for anti harassment software that it would send to companies and companies basically. Install it for their employees. You'd get a nudge every month. Five minute training and it'd be kind of this idea of making a more flexible way of learning about how to deal with modern situations that might rise up better than the one hour lecture. This is a shift in its focus. Because before was doing kind of one thing and now it's doing a broader array of things when it raised in june was just doing anti harassment in zoom and slack world and now eight months later. It's another two million co led by the same firm. Gsp that let first round of it's and it's going into anything compliance related whether that's how to make sure you are not doing insider trading by mistake or or other bits like that and it's they leaned on big customers which was the impetus for this round including netflix's doom and send us and so for an early stage startup. Those are big names. They have twenty thousand active employees completing their monthly training which the co founder is a positive signal that it's at least getting engagement in some way. Are you currently caught up on your corporate training for verizon media group as managing editor one of my wonderful tasks at the company is to actually monitor our employees to make sure they follow all of the different trainings that they have to do. Because i am the one who gets. The e mails for a bunch of folks that says so and so is sixty days later on their annual compliance training. We will delete thirty male if they do not respond immediately. Did not know that was a state attorney question again dan. Natasha and i caught up on our vm. I think you're mostly caught up february's if you are not cut up would have been fired because most the recordings are due in december. So if you haven't done them you would be out nailed it tauscher. There's also some grows numbers and our notes here. Something like two hundred and fifty percent growth quarter over quarter. What is that metric tracking in the athena's since it was tracking basically the amount of people who are on the platform amount of learners. That are coming to athena. Obviously those big contracts and mentioned earlier help them be able to prove that like any startup. right now knock sharing revenue profitability et et cetera. They're just hoping to use this money to gain new customers and figure out that stuff. Later is spelled. E. t. h. e. n. a. Not of in ethene like it's like patina but it's not blockchain related. I usually ask founders for the story behind their name but recently i guess i have not been good enough to that curious enough about how that came together. I think the idea of little mini modules. Make sense. I mean some of the things i actually remember. From compliance training are like mini modules for instance detectors by verizon media and reisen media's owned by and say verizon because it has infrastructure works with government a lot and so in our corruption training which had to take. Oh yeah there's this great story of like you're working hard at work in the field and you have a city official with you. Can you offer them a bottle of water on a hot day. And i was like stir and there's like wrong committed bribery and corruption and a dig radiation to american society. You may not offer anything of value. Not even a penny. You can't offer free water bottle or kick cat.
interview With Geoffrey Tate Of Flex Logics
"So jeffer-. I wanna start off with certain difference between doing business with the data center versus doing business at the edge. I know that the hardware you folks are working on. Is you know what i think. Most people think hardware. They think about the big rack sitting somewhere in the data center the edges different the edges. New it's its burgeoning. How do you define the edge when you talk to people. Because i think people always think about those racks but it's clearly a blooming ecosystem. Yeah well azusa terms of different people defined differently but where we basically look at businesses any system. Outside of the data center there can be things like cellphones stations in verizon stations that are kind of in between what we're looking at your robots this. He'll cars field ultrasound systems in the field. So these are systems that are separated in well removed from today's yet. Okay and and obviously pretty wide. Berth as to what that could be almost any industry this this could be applied retail. You've got cameras energy you've got i don't know some some big turbine out there. You know generating some power killing in occasional bird. You know it's pretty pretty vast swath of of what what can imply does that. Broad world of edge cluster. In any interesting ways. I think industry would be one that makes sense. Maybe you can talk a bit about that but we also use case what you see edge sort of us for a certain way tammy how do you think about this whole new space. Those of us at home. it's it's sort of. It's new it's novel but how we want to break it up. Well we're just touching the top of the iceberg so we've engaged with a lot of customers see a lot martin's segments and they have different potential sizes so one obvious one is countered. There's cameras all over the place. You mentioned walmart's wells fargo's there's cameras today wired into servers in the back offices of these places and serve servers not in the data center and right now those cameras us recording video in case somebody shoplift something that got her the tape. Now they can add inference start tracking their stores checking buying behavior along the lines along the take to get through the lines things like that. So that's an application where you need object detection and recognition similarly when you're talking about robots robots moving around into distribution for a warehouse. They need to know you know what. Say iraq to put things on. What's the what's the person to make sure you don't get them. Yeah so you're detecting. You're recognizing them taking action appropriately. Same thing happens with cars so those are all object detection recognition models like yolo the three which do an excellent job of doing that. Which are people are flying now and we see medical imaging and there's many types of limiting there's crazy. Mri machines are much less expensive or numerous ultrasound. Machines x-ray cd stamps and stuff in between so there with the people are using models for his more specialized object detection recognition typically. You're standing your knee. It's stuck in there. It's not moving but you're looking to detect some anomalies in the x ray on the ultrasound. South is the baby. Ok is the got busted acl. So it's helping. The radiologist do occur. Job of diagnosing powell. That's what those kinds of models need to be doing. Things like Scientists gamma joining or life sciences. And they are in many cases what they're doing is looking to clean up images using network approaches through extraneous information clarify the. Which if you've ever seen like an ultra sounds like i just recently hasn't surgery. The doctors were trying to find a vein of the my shoulder. I can see the ultrasound. They were looking at a teaching hospital. And i couldn't tell what they said when they when they started a doctor they couldn't tell was on either but eventually they figured it out so these ultrasounds are hard to make out in. Computers can make better judgments which results in better outcomes says. A wide range of applications are seeing for inference models. I think we're just scratching. The surface gets more powerful and cheaper is going to go into more more more systems.

Was the iPhone 12 a smash success? Here's when we find out
"This is a big earnings reports. Big one this is the one where we get the numbers for the iphone launch. So what are you expecting. We're expecting either a blow out or a surprise not blow out. This is one of those either it it really knocks the socks off for a dozen and part of it is because of the iphone. Twelve right this is a device that has been in terms of the financial world years in the making a smartphone sales in general have slowed down or gone down. Apple is kind of plateaued in terms of it and really this device is supposed to be what draws everyone back. I mean there were surveys out there. That showed something like half of customers. Who are iphone users or potential iphone users. Were gonna buy the iphone twelve. That is a massive number of people and so if that comes to be true it's going to be one of those really big moments for apple. Where they they move into another whatever. The next level is for that company it's already defying all gravity but they go even further right. The idea here is that the last time we had this so called super cycle was back with the iphone. Ten right where it was a new design there was a big Sort of big That resigned drove la demand because people held on their foes. Long enough is three or four years. This was sort of the next time. People were due for an upgrade right. Yeah you would think the iphone ten but in fact you know. Surprisingly the iphone ten was even a smaller cycle than what these people expect which is more like the iphone six If you remember that that was when it went from being the boxy design of the iphone five two more rounded corners which is what they kept until the iphone ten and also the first time they had a larger phone right that the six plus and that drove a ton of demand especially from asia where larger phones at the time were much more popular now. They're popular pretty much everywhere so you have to think like that. Moment for apple was enormous. And this is expected to be like that and it's hard to feel like in the middle of an economic catastrophe that that could happen. But i guess anything's possible. Yeah we've definitely seen from other checkup as that. The pandemic hasn't really had a real impact on their financial results. We'll see that book because that's it's tangible thing. it's funny. You mentioned that like the last. Big upgrade cycle was when the design went from box to curve in it with the iphone twelve. We went from curved back to boxy. it's like innovation. Yeah i mean it's it's like the it's it's like fashion right. What's old is new again. And it's kind of funny. I personally am more of a fan of the boxy design. Because i can hold it easier so i was all in on that. I did not like the curved ones. I always felt like they were going to slip out of my hands and i always had to have a case so i think that at the very minimum. The other thing that you have to keep in mind is that apple is pushing so hard the idea of the cameras and they've always been a thing but you now see the amount of time that they spend talking about the cameras in their presentations. You've got those shot on iphone commercials for the billboards. Although how many of us even go outside and see them anymore but those types of things really pushed the idea of unita upgrade this phone regularly. Because you're going to get the best camera you can in your pocket and even though we're all stuck inside apparently it seems like people still want really nice cameras. Well i know my wife takes analysts photos of our kids so that camera quality was the big selling point for her. The upgrade the other big feature obviously was five g. They talked a lot about five g. But do you think it had any impact on sales just given the fact that you have to be out and about to take verify. Gene and a lot of us aren't really out about that often. Well you have to be in a place where five g works. I have still yet to have five g work on my phone as i'm driving around in dc. And maybe it's because i'm the wrong carrier. You have more of a verizon town but still it's just it's crazy to me that this is a feature that's the headline feature and i have not actually had a turn on at all. I think that really fight. Jia anything is a hype thing it's able to draw people in. It's kind of like three d. tv's way back it's like oh we'll just slap another thing on the box but people rarely used it and i think five g eventually obviously is going to be the future but i have a feeling that if it did draw people in it was because of the hype of what it is not the actual functionality of it yet.
Verizon Business CEO on how 5G can solve the problems exposed by COVID-19
"Thomas driving is on the topic of one ahead. Our companies have been testing it for a while. I think they'll the lockdown. But the social distancing status quo has made the idea of the self driving car former attractive. Here's how five helping to make a time. Striving more reality yes. This is one that i could visualize. I think about the difference between a four environment. Gene i did we talk about this for a long time. When will come to. Fruition will be real. We're seeing this being tested today in pockets throughout the country. And it's not just for driverless. Vehicles thomas eagles. It's also drones. Iii sauce announced this week.

Five g capability of low latency and bandwidth capability ability for the signals to travel at sea allows a barrier differentiated in a very real experience for smart cities or thomas vehicles and for jobs kicker to be very real as you think about the ups deliver against the demand that they have for home. Delivery drones will played important part of that worry. See not in project and testing. Come faster than you imagine. Because we're finding new in different ways to use power a and how much work has been directly inspired by what's been going on over the last year and in all these solutions are they quick fixes of the problems that we've seen exposed now or solutions that can be applied to society of the long term.

Hour always on culture now depends on a working grid not just of electricity but of telecommunications and an Internet that not only never goes down but constantly speeds up efficiency is our subconscious mantra and that may be a big reason behind the hot water. All three major wireless carriers are in Verizon at and T. and T. mobile have all been promoting their new five G. wireless services heard about that each wants you to believe that their service is the fastest the most reliable hands down the best. Here's one of Reisen ads from last year at Verizon building the most powerful five G. Experience for America. That's why the NFL. Chose Verizon because they need their massive capacity of five G. With Ultra wideband, we're streaming streaming posting fans inexperienced five. Thirteen trouble in most cases, those claims can't be proved, and so the courts have banned each of these rivals from boasting about their prowess and from implying that the others are the lightweights of the wireless world witness verizon the ad I just shared with you was set in Gillette Stadium, home of the new Patriots, the company stopped running that ad last November. But that didn't stop at and T. from challenging verizon's use of the phrase most powerful to the division, the Better Business Bureau that rules on deceptive advertising cases. Why did not call the phrase into question essentially because the carriers have hardly rolled five g. out anywhere yet so it's impossible to prove one carriers mostly non existent five G. implementation is better than others. There were also questions about whether the ad was implying that the rollout was far more widespread and available to the average consumer than it was in May. The Review Board called the national advertising. Division were in a D agreed with a t and t and told verizon to using the term verizon appealed early this month they lost the said essentially consumers have no idea what most powerful means in this context the claim could not be substantiated. One it comes to making false claims don't assume that verizon is the worst offender. nope. The Empty Braggadocio is a game played by the entire industry. Go back through years in you'll see that at and T. got trouble claiming that its current four G. Network was by virtue of being fast virtually identical to five G. It even used the phrase five G. EVOLUTION TO DESCRIBE ITS FOUR G service a consumer looking for the fastest cell service could hardly be blamed for assuming that meant, they'd be using a five G. Network. Three years later, most of US still use four g networks the told at and T. to stop using the deceptive evolution phrase. At and Later agreed, and then there's t mobile, which isn't exactly honest either in late August, the NASD toll, t mobile to stop claiming that it's five G. services more reliable than the others verizon had challenged that claim t mobile said, it will appeal that decision but the Advertising Review Board also recommended that t mobile needed to stop running ads in which science guy bill nye claim that verizon's five G. coverage was barely broader than the average bus stop bench that according to industry publication fierce wireless. With a widespread deployment of five G. still some time off in the future. Why would every major wireless carrier use such inflated claims in a Word Mindshare? They want to attract and retain you as a customer. Are you more likely to stay with your current mobile carrier? If you feel pretty sure that the company will soon offer blazing fast five g service. Well maybe it's all about perception perception of what's here today and better yet perception about a speedy powerful future. That's almost hear these kinds of empty claims have a long long history in the advertising world from Telco Tonics beauty items to baby products.

"Back to make smart, this is the Thursday daily edition. Here we are once again trying trying trying to make today. Make sense for man I know after listening to Kai show today, I, have to say listening to the afternoon show. I felt a little validated to know that or the grimness is not just me this sense of depot bear the feeling. That sense that we're like what what I hope. This is what it actually Texas someone today I feel like we're at the point in the action movie where we the hero are just getting, beat down so bad, and it looks like we're for sure. GonNa lose, and then maybe the vendors are gonNA come, and it's GonNa. Be Okay. Open who Andrew Molly. WHO The exactly? I mean Ironman and Spiderman and Scarlett Johansson character whose name I can't remember right now I need all of them real bad. Which Yeah Slam on. I can I know? That's what I should. Just. Tell you these are please? That attest. S Not at all, not at all. Yeah, well, you know it's interesting. Because along those lines, my original news item today was A and I'm gonNA. Cheat here and I'm gonNA fundamental us to so it. Deal I, I, my first, my first news item was a was a tweet by Dr Tom Friedman who used to run the CDC pointing out how quickly the virus is accelerating. He pointed out that it took a hundred days to go from zero cases to a million, and it took six days to go from eight million to nine million globally. And it just you're like come on, man. Yeah, put them as. Planet need to put a mask on I, know I know yeah, but that was not my first news item. My first news item actually is is the my only actual news item because the first one gout. Is actually sort of uplifting and good and and props steer Kimberly Adams for putting this in the make me smart slack. It's it's actually beat. The US conference of Mayors has come out with. A working group report. On fundamentals and Considerations for police reform statement of Principles is what it is came out today. And here I believe Kimberly quarter two different line, but here I believe is the operative operative paragraph or extra becker. Here's what they say. The conference of mayors, a set of principles for policing attributed to Prime Minister Robert Peel in England is often cited as foundational framework for modern policing in a democracy bills. Principles state that policing must be based on a reciprocal relationship of trust between the police and the public. And I would to all y'all that has been broken that reciprocal relationship and and we. Need to fix it. And I'm I'm heartened by the conference of mayors taking lead. I am. I am. It is a hopeful moment in an otherwise really frustrating day since one of the things contributing to the grimness, one of the punches delivered to our hero in the action movie. Is Congress's absolute failure to figure out how to. Pass legislation you literally. Millions of Americans in the streets still may not be on the news every day, because it's real, nice and peaceful or whatever, but it is happening every day. People are lining the street around my corner. Still every single day, and the Congress of the United States is doing the thing that says all the time. Lost their backside can't figure out where it is using two hands feeling around in the dark. But? Yeah, I mean it's stunning, yes, yes. I know it is and we have talked. Bonds. So? You're sorry, we. We have talked so many times on the show out. Mayors. About cities, and states, Just keeping their own council. Right like at this point sort of saying we either, maybe because we are so fractured as a country or because no federal leadership is coming, because the the dysfunction has been so great for so long, certainly not as coming now that it is both heartening and disheartening. It's very heartening that the mayors of this country all are coming together and saying like okay. Look, this is we hear you and we have to do something about this. It is absurd. That our federally elected officials cannot meet this even in the slightest. Even stunning, it's kind of stunning. Politicized I, just it's just amazing, but look we politicize face masks, so I suppose anything is possible. Yeah can I just say I read the I read an edit I made a terrible mistake. I Read The Wall Street Journal editorial page last night. Time has no meaning good and smart thing to do. I think that's a smart thing. Mistake I know I. Read it a lot. I'm like a little obsessed with the Wall Street Journal, but. The the the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal wrote not for the first time an editorial, essentially saying we are going to have to learn to live with grown virus, because the reopening of the economy is too important, and the economic welfare of this country is too important, and so we're just going to have to understand that this virus is with us and take some personal responsibility now. that. Message. Might. Be. Palatable. If that sentence was immediately followed by such as wearing masks. or An exaltation to more testing and contact tracing methods that we know work in terms of chat, tracing an isolated the spread of the virus, and then wearing masks which we now know. Works and also let's be real. Anybody could have assumed works. 'cause it's respiratory and. Keep this bit in dumb dumb. But, if you write an editorial. That, says we just have to open the economy and live with the virus and personal responsibility is key in that editorial does not say, but you should have to wear a mask. To protect yourself and others, and we should have more testing and contact tracing than what you're really saying is shut up and die and I think that's the moment that I went to the dark places. We can have yet to come out. Yes come on. Okay so my. News item I did the same thing. Okay, good, it's our podcast. We can do whatever we want. Totally. Can I assume by your silence, you agree. Yeah well, you're yes, yes, what Molly said Yeah. Yeah. Anyway. An interesting thing I think is developing and part of the reason I. Think is interesting. It's because you've probably seen going around the Internet. The sort of viral video of this Young Woman I think in Florida talking before the city council and it's basically what my friend Jenny referred to as facebook out loud like she just spews a whole bunch of conspiracy theories all at once they might. She's GonNa Kill you pizza gate. I mean it's. Remarkable and What I couldn't shake from. It is that it's like. I don't. I tried to tweet this with empathy like don't assume this person is dumber than you assume that she lives in a completely different universe of information. Completely different and that it that is real. And so I find it notable that the there's been this like what seemed at first mini advertising boycott..

"verizon" Discussed on Snacks Daily
"The reason verizon's doing this is they want to stop the flow of court cut hot and there's some data that shows how bad it's gotten well just like I mean court cuttings been happening for years. Now I've been cut since two thousand four it's been cut since two thousand sixteen. It's basically like the Faucet awesome got turned on and it keeps running now. Just last quarter verizon lost another sixty seven thousand paid TV cable customers. Here's what Verizon's thinking if if people hate cable fees and services less maybe they won't cut the cord runaway. This is an anti cord cutting disruption of the Cambridge Jackson. What's the takeaway for buddies? He's over at Verizon cable is classic pros before Coz Industry. Let's talk and prophets before customer. Let's celebrates knackers. The death of the old cable Industry Industri Way. We all hated the old cable. Industry ways not is not dead yet. So exciting is incomplete squirming around over there but let's look at a counter example apple to cable Amazon Amazon is loved by customer. And it's key value customer obsession now cable. TV industry on the other hand. There obsession is with profits. Offense profits over custom customers hate those twelve month contracts but prophets love those twelve month contracts before Cho's cable was able to do that because they had a local monopoly in your town. You probably have a one offer for cable you choice no choice going on here now. You do have a choice because you can cut the cord into streaming froze before Cho's is why the cable industry is dying for our second story. The wine industry is in panic. One hundred percent tariffs on European wind could becoming soon now. It's Friday night. You're going to go home. Post podcast recording. What are you what are you popping open? What do you well even household? I was the wine salesman of the month at the Olive Garden for three straight months. Back in those six but I'm going to suppress that instinct for my wife's benefit. Are you going like an Anderson Valley. Piano are NAPA CAB if you open up a a Mayo me and let it breathe. You could advocate Jack. Do close to canner. It's a dangerous situation. If you WANNA hear Jacqueline for hours about something asked about his recent inexperience with the Chianti. I have the fastest keychain in California. You won't show them your scar on your left finger. Show them Jack now the headlines. We noticed this week. We're pretty straightforward. There were pretty scary. Actually it was like get ready to kiss European wind goodbye. We Sat in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times the reason was because president trump threatened threaten to expand the trade war between the US and Europe by punishing exports of European wine. That's right the trade wars not just in China and it's like there's other countries involved so we need to talk about the situation with tariffs on French one right now. It's a two story this one you can definitely let breathe. Right tariffs numerous. That's pretty good. Thank you twenty-five percent tariffs on European wind since October. Those are actually in place already to now the reason the US impose those on Europe is because Europe subsidizes Airbus bus. Which is Europe's airplane manufacture? And that's unfair to Boeing. which is our airplane manufacturer? These tariffs already exist. And it's not just on French wine. It's also on Scotch whisky Italian cheese and French wine because this is a European punish. Here's the thing you may have heard about this. But you haven't noticed this when you've been to a grocery most likely that's because the stores selling these products and the distributors who import them. They're the ones who are paying this import tax right now. It's not seeing our. Let's outlets bit this one out. Over to tariffs offs numerical duh okay. Hundred percent tariffs. France passed an unprecedented tax targeting. US tech companies like Google and facebook. We covered it last fall on snacks. President trump responded with a threat to impose a own hundred percent tariff on French wine. Yes just France this time. It's not the Italian cheese. It's just French wine. So let's say it's like a really bake Friday night free tonight. And you're celebrating with a non expensive Boorda. Let's talk about how how expensive that Bordeaux become so your local liquor store. They probably pay fifteen bucks for that bottle of Bordeaux normally they would mark that up and charge thirty dollars to you you to buy it so they can make a doubling the price in. Yeah they're marking it up now. That store is GonNa have to pay fifteen dollars for the bottle like usual but then also a fifteen dollar tariff so now it's thirty dollars for your liquor store and they're gonNA mark that up one hundred percent you're paying sixty dollars instead of thirty so that they can make a profit now French wine specialist. It's liquor stores restaurants. They're in a panic because they can't have their wind double impressed. Americans are going to reject that Jack Italian wine instead or maybe even German one so so Jack India bathe me in a Gordimer over here and tell us the takeaway for the wine industry. These one hundred percent tariffs would hurt Americans much more than they hurt. The French France actually has more leverage than China has when it comes to responding to our American tariffs think about if America doesn't by China's steel than China is in serious trouble but if America doesn't by France's Wine Francis actually can okay. The rest of the world is really interested in Francis. Ironically China still really interested in France's wine so China might be desperate to sell to the US. But if France sees these one hundred percent tariffs they're not gonNA respond probably by lowering the price of their one. No instead the price would just double double for US Americans and most likely they would just be not in stores anymore because that's just too expensive. This is a great example of international trade policy basically being threats let's in bluster and just mirrors and stuff. We actually don't think these one hundred percent tariffs are going to happen. WE'RE GONNA see a headline soon. It says tariffs dropped in exchange for Blah Blah. Haredi much much appreciated tactic. For our third and final story. Softbank backed UNICORNS are laying off workers. In you. Ge- numbers Softbank is the Japanese the venture capital firm. That's invested in a lot of the companies that you know and those companies have recently laid off workers now Jack and I jumped and snacks and we looked at the memos that the CEO sent out to actually announce these fire the stories about laughs. Sad but the pattern we found in these letters is pretty. It's like there's a formula they're falling all right so very formula if you're the company that's raised billions of dollars and you have to fire like hundreds of people. Apparently this is how you start. This is what you do to. The beginning of your memo has to have an obnoxiously slee arrogant line about how well you're doing. Of course what comes next back then you are very ambiguous about the actual firing use some words that don't fire it. Don't make sense. What's that mean fire? And then you conclude this memo with a virtuous claim about the future of your company and it's half the profitability example. The new away for our company to point. I can't believe they just blue skies ahead we're GONNA start urging from the ash our analysis with Zoom Pizza Which snappers you know because Jack or the like a month ago it was great? Zoom Pizza had trucks. That had Robo Pizza Ovens Jack Red Flag here when we ordered it. We thought the truck was coming instead like a camera came nick and scampered outside excited to see this Robo Trust Camper you gotTa scamper and it was just. An Uber. Eats spherical red flag number. This company's pizza race. Three hundred and seventy five million dollars just from Softbank in two thousand eighteen. That's right Softbank. Gave Zoom pizza a check for for three hundred and seventy five million dollars and said expand your Robo truck pizza delivery well this month January twenty twenty they are now laying off eighty percent of their staff which is like four hundred people that is brutal and the way the CO nounce. It in a letter to employees began with a line. We are blessed with an opportunity to invent brave and innovative solutions. What what kind of an openers vetted this and then he said? Many of the current roles no longer exists. That's how they announced the firing. That's our ambiguous reference to fire him. I don't even follow where the only if they don't exist. They're not current rules right even right. That didn't make sense so that was soon pizza. We noticed the same same thing happened for a company called get around yet around. Is the AIRBNB for cars. You can rent out your car when you don't need it for the weekend. Can someone else POPs into. Hopefully they clean it. Maybe leaves them like they. They received a check in two thousand eighteen of three hundred million dollars from Softbank to expand their AIRBNB for car. And we just learned that now in January twenty twenty they're laying off twenty five percent of their staff or one hundred fifty people now. The worldwide web has a copy of the CEO's letter to employees announcing these entitled the next Chapter Honestly. It sounds like with some epic humble bragging about the six times growth to five million users who are on getaway now then. There was this line which kind kind of implied maybe people are losing their jobs reducing field operations. What does that mean who works at a startup in knows themselves as a field operator spoiler it means lamb? How do you even operate? There are no fields anywhere and then finally it gave specific instructions about what room to go to which after the all hands me doesn't sound fun. We think think it's like a blue pill red pill situation. Blue Room is you're getting laid off. Red Room is survivor for another month. Now we've noticed this pattern not just with the companies you just mentioned but Softbank companies have been dealing with this for months. Let's take December just a month ago wag which is a dog walking APP recently. Let go one hundred. Eighty two people were which is one one of soft bank's og investments laid off a thousand people and we work has already laid off twenty four hundred after the epic failure of an IPO. And there's more expected to come Sir Project. What's the takeaway for our buddies over? At the Japanese venture capital firm. Softbank Twenty is the end of an era of the Anti Prophet. Start a snacker jump in your pod. Time machine back to the same month last year January twenty nineteen we were talking about IPO. Palooza the for Uber. Lift Pinterest Peleton and slack. who were we're all getting ready to? IPO One year later today. We're talking about the exact opposite. IPO's have stopped happening. Startups are finding employees. Companies are pivoting their business business models in search of profit now Softbank the Japanese venture capital firm was the one fuelling Uber's rise even though it's an infamous money loser you get three hundred million dollars you get three three hundred million acres no joke. We calculate Uber Loses five hundred forty three thousand dollars every hour and Softbank was also the key investor that allowed we work to fly to Gargantuan Heights. Softbank portfolio is full of these anti profit. Start up their focus was one thing. Just being the biggest disruptor there is regardless of profit now that concept has been rejected horrid at the end of two thousand nine hundred and harder into twenty twenty stock markets were very harsh to Softbank backed companies the end of Soft Bank's Anti Anti Prophet era. Jack in your whip up the takeaways force before the weekend verizon is ending its pros before Coz cable TV instincts it needs to stop the flow of court cutting. So it's making gable. Less aggravated French wine would likely double in price. If the one hundred percent tariffs go through. But we don't think that will actually happen. It's probably just negotiating tactic. Story Soft Bank's heard of UNICORNS are laying off workers by the HUNDR- There's been a reckoning for anti profit startups and there's a formula for how to fire are people. Apparently now are fact of the day is a follow on factor today yesterday really. Does this happen. But it's good when the when the Phil Spector from Boston. Mass heard yesterday's snack from Scott from Scott's we assume he spat out his Dunkin donuts and immediately tweeted us at Robin Hood. Snacks with a follow up. Hershey stat data so we talked about it Hershey. Pennsylvania Guy's name as I think Milton Hershey. Great Name Milton's a good name so hershey initially wasn't trying to make chocolate at all. No news is in the CARAMEL business. which he actually sold and then got into the chocolate business? Now here's the thing. He knew that his name Hershey had to be on these bars that he was going to sell. Got It forward to be a marketing success. Landing thing about Caramel is it. Like I don't know it's a little softer kind of like melts. Wise stick get the name to stick in there so we try chocolate instead name stuck perf. Oh by the way extra snack bacteria that Jack I discovered. Apparently Mr her she was supposed to be on the titanic had booked tickets to the titanic pantic but then like too much probably at a meeting with reecey snacker loved being back with you to start the week we could not feel better about.

"Verizon has done something really hideous to school children. And I'm gonna tell you what it is and unacceptable behavior from Verizon who's gone into a defensive crouch. Not responding. I believe that as more and more of us draw attention to Verizon's thick-headed stupidity, and selfishness that they will change their minds on what they're doing to school kids, and I'll share with you coming up later. There's a proposal that was flouted by new member of congress to have a seventy percent federal tax rate. And there's a lot of. A lot of interesting reaction to that including an amazing level of support for that across the political spectrum with the Republicans, Democrats and independence. I want to explain to you what that's about. And what it would mean to potentially you're in my wallet. So speaking of your my wallet net flicks has gotten more media coverage in the last day then. I mean, I can't remember a time that they got this kind of media coverage. And the reason is because their rate plans are going up thirteen to eighteen percent now. People are going Korea as about this. And I think that it brings up an opportunity for me to discuss something important for your wallet so net flicks. The cheapest plan of all. This is going to nine dollars. Their most popular plan is going to thirteen and there's. Multi multi user plan that is going to get sixteen a month. Something like that sixteen and. The reality is net. Flicks has been essentially subsidizing everybody. Their stockholders been subsidizing everybody is net. Flicks. Growing market share up to fifty million American households some number like that have net flicks now, and they've been losing money on us every month and on top of it net. Flix originally was all back catalogue stuff. Older movies and TV shows. But really only became immensely popular. When Netflix started doing original programming started winning Emmys for it and the cost of original programming is normal, and that's a technical movie term, John Ormuz, and so they have been subsidizing this. So their stockholders have been and they're like can't do that anymore. So that's why the prices are going up to nine to sixteen a month. So couple of things who you with any streaming product a lot of people over time have signed up for this one for eight dollars, and this one for twelve dollars this other one for nine dollars and on like that for you know, it you're spending real money on these streaming products. What are you watching are you watching them? So if net flicks has done any favour for your wallet. At a time. They're increasing prices. It's to make you think through is it useful for you. Do you watch? Do you use it? Have Hulu that you're paying for. Are you using it are you watching it any streaming product that you're paying for it just hits that.
