It was a disturbing weekend for a historic African American church in Northern Virginia. The foggier county sheriff's office says three teenagers have been arrested for vandalizing the first Asheville baptist church in Marshall. Not once, but twice. Deacon Mike Lewis tells NBC four, while it's upset, the acts were upsetting, none of it, he says, was related to race or ethnicity. When you damage and you vandalize a place of worship, that's animosity against the place of worship. Some of the damage at the church included graffiti, the church was founded by freed slaves back in 1874

"Details. Meg. Hey, Melissa, a panel of outside advisers to the FDA voting today unanimously to recommend booster shots for people who got the Moderna vaccine and are at least 6 months out. Now the vote they took was specifically on the same groups who were authorized for a Pfizer booster that's people who are over 65 and those between the ages of 18 and 64 who are either at increased risk because of underlying health conditions or because of their job or institutional setting. And so there was discussion today of whether the boosters should be expanded to everybody over age 18, at least for Pfizer and Moderna and the committee really was not on board with that right now, essentially saying that the benefit risk didn't make sense for all younger, healthy people at this moment. There was some discussion from a CDC representative about whether the age should be lowered to 50 potentially. And that's something that will be an ongoing discussions. But right now, this really setting the stage for the FDA to clear this for folks who got Moderna and then next week, the CDC to talk about it and then this actually becoming available probably at the end of next week. Same process is going to take place for Johnson & Johnson tomorrow that might be a little bit more complicated because it's a different kind of vaccine in just one dose and the data look different. And interestingly now we're also going to hear from the NIH tomorrow on mixing and matching boosters, and that is a key commercial question for all of these vaccine makers as the next stage of this really as we get out of the pandemic is going to be competing to be the booster of choice. And that's when you see companies like novavax, potentially even playing a role there and moving on some of the NIH data that we saw yesterday. So this will continue to be really interesting, Moderna, though, popping on this boat. So does this open the posi? I mean, the idea of mixing and matching boosters that even another vaccine maker that's not Pfizer or Moderna could come in with the booster of choice ultimately. So the NIH data we saw so far were just for the three available vaccines, but essentially it is the first step in saying, hey, it might make sense to switch up the type of vaccine you get. And so whenever novavax becomes available or Sanofi and GSK, which also have a protein based vaccine, they could be competing in the next rounds if we have to get COVID vaccine seasonally like we do for flu. It may not be limited to just these three companies. All right, Meg, thank you, Meg Terrell, with the latest on Moderna. We've mentioned BioTech at the top. It was the smaller cap more sort of beta BioTech names that saw the biggest bid today Tim, but I'm wondering if you think this is sort of a game changer for Moderna, which actually got the biggest pop today. Yeah, and if Carter was here with this delta tone, he would have said to the penny at $300, which was an important level for this stock. And look, it's fascinating. We saw this all the way through the early stages of when we were starting to get a glimpse of who was leading the race on a vaccine and where we were getting in terms of then the follow-up, who would be the standard? What would be the number of follow-up boosters and look, I don't think we really know in terms of how the prices of these stocks are going to trade because we still don't really understand where they will be priced where the competitive landscape will be. And as we said, just mag is pointed out there's a chance you could actually have somebody come in and really be the kingmaker in terms of either who they are partnering with or where there is efficacy. So I just think that in the case of a Moderna, you have a valuation that's very, very difficult, despite a company that's proven, it's not necessary just a one trick pony, although that's what's taken them here. So I would be fading the strength of Moderna because I think there's going to be a lot of news for all of these companies and ultimately that is strength to be faded on vaccines. Yeah. Your thoughts on that? Karen was way ahead of this. I mean, I think it goes back to the fall of last year when she was pointing out that the winner here was not gonna be Pfizer in terms of the stock, but Moderna and she was spot on. I mean, it's that stock is probably going to fourfold since was Pfizer's going up percentage points. What are my thoughts? Well, when that downgrade happened, I think it was in August. Maybe September you recall, we actually talked about it on the show. I think a $115 price target in Moderna. And I think collectively, we said, no, I don't know if you see one 15, but you could definitely see three 25. Tim just pointed out we overshot that. But I think you have something to trading at now in the form of that recent low. And I actually hear what Tim is saying in terms of fading it. That's probably the right way to trade it. I think you can continue to buy strength here. I do think this stock has one more run to the upside. All right, we've got an after hours alert on virgin galactic shares are sinking after the close. Christina parts nebulas joins us now with the news driving the action, Christina. Well, virgin galactic has hit a snag with its space flight. The company announcing the beginning of its commercial space tourism service will be pushed out to the fourth quarter of 2022. Shares of virgin galactic right now are dropping about 12% virgin galactic has currently entered what they call an enhancement period, so they're testing the vehicle performance and checking the strength of materials, but one of their recent lab tests flagged a quote possible drop in strength of certain materials used to modify specific joints. Virgin galactic says they will now have to do further physical inspections. And once they finish all of those tests and inspections virgin galactic then intends to complete the testing program for VMS eve, as well as VSS unity, as well as the planned test flight with the Italian air force. And it looks like you'll have to wait a little bit longer to book that virgin galactic space flight. Oh, the disappointment on this panel Christina. You don't feel it. Thank you. Christina parts nebulas. Dan, I feel like you would sign up for a virgin flight, but I mean, this is a this is basically a delay to their core business. Who cares? Who cares? What's the Tam? I mean, listen, this is exactly what you'd want this company to do. Let's make sure that when we send these things up, that they come back with the people here. So pushing something out a quarter or two doesn't really matter when you think about this company. Listen, I know this is a very controversial stock and people think that there's other space companies that are more interested in this than ever. But wouldn't you want this sort of competition to make sure all of these people who are focused on going to space or bringing people to space or bring satellites to space are doing it in a very safe manner. So to me, you know, it seems like a bit of an overreaction. I don't own the stock. I find it to be a very interesting story. I think ten years from now, fast money or space money or whatever they call it then, there's going to be a lot of space stocks. It might be like, you know, the ED stocks now. So the idea of again pushing it out for your first 6 months who cares? All right, coming up. Former FDIC chair Sheila bear sounding the alarm. She was worried that another financial crisis could be in the cards. She'll tell us why, straight ahead,.

Space Tourism Blasts Off
"The world has been buzzing about space lately as more and more rockets take off from our planet but the latest launches aren't from governments or organizations that you used to like nasa instead. Several billionaires and their companies have gotten into a bit of a space race on july first richard branson who owns space company. Virgin galactic became the first person to get to space in a rocket that he funded cool ends on july twenty first amazon founder. Jeff bezos flew a few miles higher than branson and a rocket called new shepherd nice. Each flight was about ten minutes long. Both virgin galactic and bezos company. Blue origin have stated that. They're looking to popularize space tourism. But right now they're charging big bucks for the privilege. Virgin is currently charging two hundred fifty thousand dollars a seat and while blue origin. Tickets aren't opened for the public to buy yet. One of bazo seat meets ponied up. Twenty eight million dollars for the first ride. These flights represents a new era for space travel. But they've also been controversial. Critics have questioned the amount of money being spent on this endeavor instead of donating to causes and solving problems here on earth especially in the midst of a pandemic but besides being joyrides for the rich and famous experts. Say that these space vehicles could one day have something to offer the science world. Scientists who want to conduct experiments in low. Gravity haven't been able to go aboard flights at all. The ships are unmanned bummer. That could change in the future scientists. Hope that they could study questions. Like how living things respond to the move from. Gravity to
Main Engine Cut Off
"virgin galactic" Discussed on Main Engine Cut Off
"Welcome to main engine cutoff. I anthony colangelo. I wanna talk about the two long-awaited flights of spaceship to flying richard branson and new shepherd. Flying jeff bezos. Both of them flying with several other crew members. We've been waiting for these for years. It's been something we've been looking forward to for a while. We are now beyond them So i wanted to talk a little bit about some thoughts on the flights themselves and then also get into some larger thoughts about the state of sub orbital tourism. The way that i'm looking at it now. Kinda update my thoughts. Because it's been probably a few years since i've taken deep dive on it on the show so and i think the last year so my things changed on the way that i look at these two vehicles specifically the industry itself and where. It's all going so in chronological order. A virgin galactic unity. Twenty two flight was i. This was carrying four passengers and two pilots. That's where i wanna start with things. That i noticed about the flight virgin galactic kept referring to this as a fully crewed spaceflight. They've got a tweet saying that's the day of the launch and they kept using that verbiage throughout the stream and the press conferences around it and answers to the press. And all that so. I'm really curious if that's the case that this can only carry six people total because up until now the Plan or the. The renderings have been six passengers and two pilots for total of eight. They're saying this is fully crewed. Maybe the maximum they can fit in there as four at any one time. If you look at the video and compare it to the renderings. They put out a couple of months ago when they said. Here's what our cabins gonna look like the seats kind. I've can be swapped out for these little payload racks in a you know whatever i guess. Whatever combination makes sense for. Who's flying what they're flying. So in the renderings there was either six seats in the back or there was three seats down. One side of the spacecraft and Three payload racks across the aisle from them So maybe they can only fit four people total but they can do any mix of payloads and and people so in this case. This was an all passenger flight. Just four seats. Maybe they can do one where there's you know to passengers. That don't have payloads into passenger. That do have payload racks. Whatever the case is it sort of seems like this is the amount of people that they can take up to You know the altitude that they're trying to aim for is above eighty kilometers. We'll see that as the next couple of flights happen and they start introducing professional astronauts. There's a flight coming up with the italian air force. The potential is there for nasa flight crew on that sub orbital crew program that they announced a year or two back. Whatever that was so. I think as we start to see some you know less test flights and more flights with people paying to go up and people going up with payloads themselves. That aren't something they can carry in their flight suit. Maybe we'll get more clear an answer here but for now it seems like this is going to be limited at six people total Which i think does impact not only the planning for how much money they can make from each flight. But the planning for what they're actually gonna be able to do on board now of course one of the benefits of only flying with four people in the passenger cabin. Is that the cabin. Look very spacious. When they were up there in zero g there was basically to empty seats spots in the back. That was you know you could see members of the crew going back there floating around looking out those windows as well so it definitely had a very spacious vibe to it. The layouts provides us full. I'll basically where people were kind of floating around in there. So i did. I did appreciate that from videos that we've seen inside that. Just very spacious being able to pull over to whatever different windows you want. That was definitely noticed. Now there's obviously came with a lot of pomp and circumstance out at spaceport america. It's a big day for them. Given how much flack that has received locally there The spaceport itself has been gone local politics for awhile and rightly so. I think there's a lot of people mad about how much money the state has spent on that spaceport when it is really only used by virgin galactic. Right now so locally. There's probably some more storylines there that i could find somebody from new mexico to talk about this kind of stuff But they had a huge setup their big attention. Vip's there was you know a whole virgin event so there was musical acts and there were speeches and all this kind of stuff. I am bypassing the entire debate. About where space begins. Because it's very boring to me. And i am a strict jonathan mcdowell line observer so eighty kilometers my line. I don't really care about that. As i said back when they did start flying above eighty kilometers with Virgin galactic spaceship to look out the window. Hard argue that you're in space. It's an amazing view from up there So i'm i'm bypassing all that. I'm bypassing all the culture war stuff about billionaires and what. They're spending their money on though. I think i'll probably circle back to that second half the episode but all in all. This was exactly the kind of day that virgin galactic needed. They've been a very. There's a lot of drama with virgin galactic over the past several years You know going all the way back to the the accident that killed somebody on one of the flight one of the flights that was not that long ago that was twenty fourteen so all in all it was not that long ago. That happened and mike ellsbury was killed. They've flown a bunch since then there's been a series of articles that have come out about issues. They've had those flights that they didn't disclose There was a big gap after they. I flew beth moses in the passenger cabin between that and the next spaceflight so a very storied history and i think that was even further complicated by richard branson wanting to fly before. Jeff bezos. so you know up until this last month or so. We thought that they were going to be flying. Richard branson towards the end of the year once jeff as announced he was going for july twentieth. All of a sudden. The date moved up quite a bit shuffled around their program. I'm curious about that. Seems like there's going to be a little more fallout marks duckie. The head of flight tested virgin galactic. Just left virgin galactic. Apparently not under his own accord or he said not on his own. Timeline so seems like there's gonna be some additional fallout for that. And i just want to know what the next couple of flights are going to be like converged lactic. I'm still hedging. my bets. hear about them getting into an operational cadence after this flight. But i guess that stuff to see in the future but on a great day for virgin galactic. I'm not the biggest fan of virgin galactic overall. But i do think this is exactly the kind of day that the company needed so congrats to everyone out there. If you're listening and you work there great day for you agree couple of weeks for you really and you deserve every bit of that fun now. A couple of days later blue origin went up with new shepherd sixteen flying jeff bezos and friends. His brother mark wally funk airspace icon. And they're calling him. The first paying passenger though was like an asterix. Whatever next to that oliver damon so again. Here's another four passenger crew. This one though is definitely not full crew. They still have six seats in the cabin. They're going to fill six seats. I presume on the next flight for whatever reason maybe jeff just wanted some extra space up there so he said let's just fly for Think with their first crew flight it makes sense to keep things a little more limited to just kind of work things out before..

What are some of the differences you expect to see when this flight takes off. Yeah i mean the biggest difference just sort of visually blue origin uses a rocket to get the space. We're going to see literally the new scheffer rocket flare up into at very high speeds into space. And then you know we won't see this but a capsule detach and float into space and then the rocket will return to the launch pad. Virgin galactic of course uses a different method. They've got a kind high-flying airplane that flies up. You know the way you would see at an airport and the space craft the virgin galactic spacecraft attached to the rocket detaches at about forty five thousand feet and then it sort of rockets up into space from there.

Branson, Bezos, Musk: The Billionaire Space Race
"Richard branson's being outed longer than the others. Seventeen years or so since richard branson. I announced his ambitions. Two thousand four. When virgin galactic was started. I think back then the intention walls within three or four years. They be doing what they've only just done now of of taking passengers into space but for him dates back and he. He talks about this a lot. Doesn't it back to nineteen sixty nine and watching the moon landing a teenager. We choose to go to the moon and and do the other thing not because they are easy being taken outside by his dad and the pointing up at the moon and realizing there were two men up there east folks at one of those men buzz aldrin in the nineties and and talked about the idea of using plane rather than a traditional rocket as so. The idea is been fermenting for a long time lot of setbacks on the way of course. I think a lot of us wonder whether this would ever happen. He's proved he can do it. And i think that for him is why this is so emotionally significant but also practically significant in a business sense as well. Let's go through the others then we go elon. Musk of tesla. Fame with space. X.'s dragon capsule and he's the best known for his space ambitions around the world. Think just because of his global profile that he has and has had a lot of success with the commercial side of this deals with nasa of taking things up into orbital space which of course is much further than branson or some of the tourism operations are going and has talked in perhaps much greater ambition. About what could be done. He's talked about colonizing mars. Easy said he wants to go to mars. he's also said people might die. Going to mars but ambitions seemed to be much bigger and grander than just space tourism. And someone who through his life has solve the big problems as he's seen them around the world and this is one he sees that needs to be solved by the private sector. Then making up the triumvirate. Jeff bezos of amazon fame. What of his ambitions. what's his rocket. Program is interesting isn't because he there's far less publicity with with. Jeff bezos a blue origin. The company that will take him into space has been around for twenty years so longer than branson's virgin galactic but his plans all rooted much further back than that he he talks of colonizing space of building these holds where trillions of people can live something. It's thought he took from a professor. He had at princeton physicist. Who came up with his idea in the seventies so he has these grand ambitions that pass. He doesn't talk about as much as richard branson alone.

But i mean i don't know how i don't know how that connects to anything. The thing that's interesting to me is like amazon and like blue origin they had to like be snippy about this too technically space. You know great really interesting to me about this like the bicycle video. We're very used to spacex right. Probably everybody listening to show is watched. Uh spacex livestream spacex basically apes nasa right and assez national. Tv is not like action packed. Right right nasa. Like their streams. Are you know their government agency trying to educate the public and inspire the youth to do math. Or whatever and they're very dry. Direct spacex alonzo engineer. That's an engineering company famously. Tesla doesn't do any marketing. Like say sex. Looks a lot like i said. I think as a company. Their engineering focused. Most spacex launches are like after the launch. There's a long period of just like watching a rocket float into the sky while dot bar graph at the bottom moves along and then like excited people. Tell you about space. Engineering and people are captivated minutes. I'll make sense. Our science team has very conflicted feelings about the space. X livestream is right. Because they're not real like they april thing that looks official the a the government regulated thing. But they're a private company. That looks like it. But they're still pretty good and people washington who like them branson is literally like a music video executive that's who he is. He's an entertainment executive. The virgin galactic stream was like an infomercial like no aping nasa whatsoever. There was another stream. That was up from just like a youtube channel and they were just like yeah. Watch us if you don't want the fluff because interspersed with the regular virgin. Galactic stuff was like you know like at the olympics that you like human interest pieces on like athletes. Yeah it was that but for branson and then like what about one about his mom like just all this stuff. Hyping it up and i was like watching. This is like sci fi movie where the rocket explodes me. Made me anxious. As i was watching. If you say something is great this much like something movies man. It all went off. It was fine as space gets more privatized in commercial and then we've all kind of lulled into complacency by spacex being this engineering company. That kind of looks like nasa their commercial. That plane landed in. They're like here's a song. Richard branson commission from college and then we just like listen to a song. For what like. Why is this happening. And i i think we were. We should all get ready like blue origin. Does it and virginia lactic. Does it other companies start to do commercial space. They're going to do commercial space. And it's gonna look like branded content. Not like something went wrong in that flight will you. I would not have trusted that video to be an accurate representation of the flight correct. Yeah cycling on the same over and over again until they figured out what to say. I mean the thing about the stuff is the these huge celebrations And if you actually step back and think about what are we celebrating. We are celebrating the fact that private companies have done something that we did as like society and a government seventy years ago sixty years ago. Whatever like that's that's what we're celebrating. And i know that's productive and it's more than that but i don't know it is a little weird like the joke that billionaire's space. They should stay there. I don't want anybody to die. Obviously but i do. I do wanna know like other than a pr opportunity. Like tell better story of what the purpose of your you know. Space rockets are the bransons. It's just a pr opportunity right. Like he's he was evaluating the product but he came off his rocket right in there. Like what was it and he was like that was amazing dream of it's such since i was a little boy. What a great opportunity to evaluate the customer experience..

Twelve right it's just a couple months before the thirteen is going to come out and there are no accessories for this innovative new system. There is a wider diversity of types of add-ons under the moto mod. Modular brand than there are for magazine. That's put that on the site of all of the things you have proposed writing the burning the mexico system with a moto. Mods is the way to go yeah. I do like the idea that if you have. I found twelve mini which does not have great battery life. This inflicts on the back. You can still reach the i like. That's cool yeah. I'm into that. I mean it ruins like the whole reason to the mini though which is that women. Put it in their pockets. Well it's like z. Access instead of x. y. axis. so those pockets. they're tiny. yeah we've got one. We got play with one. This is just funny. It's like this whole. Like i have the moment karm out it's great. It's just a little black circle. Yeah definitely does not charge my phone. Yeah it's great. It's like the coolest car amount ever had and i think broadcast listeners. That's high praise because you have very easy but it doesn't charge the phone and it's like why the number of people who have tweeted me that like they've bought a series of hacks to turn the regular magazines puck into karm out. Yup yeah i get it. But it's because no one else can get that puck into the actual product right to killing me. It's like they have all these accessories and he's come to nothing all right.

"Which of these. Bits and bobs apple news. Do you want to start with theater. Oh let's start with the betas one thing at the betas. It's like apple. Listen to everyone apple. Listen everyone and they almost fixed the tab layout in safari actually fix it. They almost fixed it so now. The url bar separate on desktop which is great They like brought back some more stuff on the mobile bar. So you've got you know more than like one button that's not hidden and then they'll seems fine except the tabs are just like floating buttons above your browser window just like there's just some buttons and those are the tabs and one of them is three percent darker than the rest of them. And that's our active tab. What are you doing I get the feeling that inside of like apple's user experience design labs. They are thoroughly convinced that this is a better way and people just seemed to get used to it and they will come around but like they have only talked to themselves and they've convinced themselves that this is true and they put out the betas and they got all the feedback and these are very grudging. Changes in the direction of maybe the discover ability of the interface in your most important app shouldn't be hidden right because like they still haven't put the refresh button at the top level of the nath right like that. Button should always be in front of you. I'm happy they're changing it. I hope they continue to chain like honestly they should change it all the way back. The only thing. I support is moving moving. The address part of the bottom can reach it. Yeah moving out as part of the bottom. Good all the rest bad and i think that they they want us to be thankful for what we had before and so they just gave us something worse than they go back to what we had before like. Oh apple you're so good at design you finally figured it out like i said i see a bunch of ideas here. That are like apple. Let's be bold especially in the mobile browser But i just like the idea that you have the home arthur bottom you can swipe between apps and in like twenty pixels above it. You have an address. Party can swipe between web tabs That's a mistake. Young people are going to screw up just accent time. Well hopefully they keep changing it. Graduate them for trying. Keep going you can do it. You can get all the way. They're there to a user interface. People understand the danger is they're gonna release is fourteen in. The story will be that the web browsers bad. Yeah and we've seen this now like is important as we think we are like put out stories and how it works but like the chatter on twitter is just going to be this thing stupid. There's no way to control that. There's no aided. You can't pay influencers to influenced conversation like it's just going to get away from them. You can see it coming like a train. So i hope they figure it out. That's actually going to be in an episode of ted lasso. Social media is once again out of control. Actually the to ted in hilarious in this respect so to have full of product placement right like yeah they all have max phones questions. Show like enron but they just have pds razor peas like really clearly labeled razor. Pc's like no mistake. What it is gino company. It's dealers there's much. I found thirteen. Rumors and ipad mini rimmer. So the iphone. Thirteen rumor is basically that apple is going to make a galaxy s. twenty-one ultra and that will be the next version of the iphone pro. Max that's like the the switch to an l. t. o. Screen is the rumor and they're going to have a Improved optical zoom supposedly for video recording. I don't know what that's about but it just sounds to me like they're going to maybe put a periscope on it and they're definitely gonna put an lt screen. That'll have variable refresh rate. I finally and that'll be the thing that gets you use a pro iphone instead of the regular one. So the optical zoom video periscope. That's because in video you want smooth zoom. You don't want to switch between lenses. is that your inference. Here no you can you can. If you have a periscope inside the phone you can get along resume optically then you can. Otherwise that's all. Yeah now. Sony is doing a thing where you can have like a it can actually switch the focal lengths between zooms. It's like physically moving the lenses. Which is nuts. It's on the experience. One three but i would be very very surprised if apple did that. I think we are definitely the place. Where like apple is putting stuff out on the iphone. A couple one to two years after samsung does it and they often will implemented better than samsung. But you know. We're super late and variable frustrate screens. Iphones it's nice. That they're going to go. Lt peo- that's like what is going to enable it and i. I can't believe i'm saying this. But i'm gonna say it apple i. I'm begging you to leave the lightning port on this phone because it seems like the other alternatives no port and like come on business rumor It's quo who says mexico. Mexico ecosystem is not ready. That wants to. The mexico's isn't ready right. I would remind you that apple is fully in control of the ecosystem. There are no meg safe products. There just aren't the battery apple. Just made its own hundred dollar magsi battery. I just bought a fifty dollar anchor battery that has a little magnet on it but that one is a fake. As far as i can that one like uses the magnets and uses chee but it doesn't support the higher save charging rate. Oh that's correct. Yep right so it's like it's sort of in the sense. That apple cannot restrict magnetism from operating in the world. It is trying. They can't make the magnets not be magnets. Like yes it clicks onto the back. But then it's just a charging battery right aligns itself and this is kind of what apple said when they announced the i've dipped. We can't stop you but what they can do is say it can only charge it. Certain rates right. So they're new. Makes battery can charge. The full rate can win. It's plugged in when it's plugged in right. I think it's five watts. When it's not plugged in correct can go to like fifteen when it's actually plugged in and it also displays its battery life in apple's little battery widget which no other non apple device can do so you can see it next year. Watch battery in your airport battery and whatever it does reverse charging you can reverse charge the puck from your phone if your phone is plugged in which. I don't think they're gonna let anybody else do. They're definitely do but it's just funny to be like we're moving towards a portland and the reason we're not there yet is this ecosystem hasn't felt and it's like well you haven't let anybody make anything. Yeah i mean this is. I mean i'd complain about the apple accessory ecosystems the same somewhat true of lightning but like all anybody wants to make his cables to charge your phone so like people. Just make them..

You don't get netflix shows because netflix. Yeah we don't. We don't need to work with that.

That sums up this whole thing which is big kickstarter 2017 energy. It looks great. these are obviously renders. Yeah i mean. I don't know we. We had we had the steam controller there for a minute and these these actually have the little touch pad things like that. That was the big idea. The steam controller is. You don't need the mouse and keyboard because he's got touch pads on your under control so they brought those back. I think he didn't also in the most cowardly way possible though because they did it. Like right under the joysticks. So you're like your thumb that the meat of your thumb is always going to be just sitting on those touch pads constantly. Maybe i don't know how to play video game. I'm trying to think of how you hold whether your hand. But like i just wish they'd kinda committed one way or the other two joysticks or the touch pads if it exists i mean i think they learned from the steam controller that The idea is not as good as their hopes for it. And it's gone. You can't buy you can for a while there in two thousand nineteen you could buy one for five bucks had a fire sale but now those are gone. I still have mine. I'll sell it to you really would not like it at all. I don't have actually the the little remote to plug into your computer. So i don't think it's actually useful at all. I don't know how i use it. But i haven't. I'm actually actually very excited about this device. Why it just like you know you see a really kind of crummy gadget but it just hits it like gadget lust you us legs dumb but also looks like i would spend like four hours playing with it and a great for hours. That's that's what it hits me with. I'm just like oh man. This looks like i would want to go to sharper image. Play with this thing. New sits me like it has a seven twenty p. I mean imagine the switch pro and what was the big thing about. the switch. Pro was was four k. output. Yeah maybe slightly higher display and like this. Which didn't get any of that. And this thing is a seven inch seven twenty p like and it's thick and it's got like buttons on the back that you're supposed to use your pinky. Do you know this reminds me of i. Just it just hit me. This is the modern day atari lynx. John talking like four. Em youtube nerds. But like i hadn't entirely. I spent so much time like saving money when i was like thirteen to by atari. Lynx was the talk of the middle school i had. I had the big one. They actually made a second model of the atari lynx. But i had like the chunk. Yes in what it was. Not was the sega game gear. This is this in the switch. Have like the same exact like this is more powerful. The links has more power for get like. This isn't even a near lake. The you could be like you know what that was a really good console. It was just like nobody bought it. This is very much like some people are going to buy it. But it's not going to be a great. It's like yeah. Look i'm excited for this thing. I don't care what all you say. I've been trying to stream x cloud games to my phone and my comcast disclosure comcast is an investor.

Fry every high everything. Yes the battery. Life numbers here are super interesting because of what they called out. What's that right so you can play this quote the you can play portal to for four hours if you limit it to thirty frames for second play for five or six hours. The other side of the quote is for lighter use cases like game streaming smaller games or web browsers you can expect a maximum better life a seven to eight hours right so they are explicitly saying oh game streaming is. I think you should do with this device which is really interesting because if you're steam and you see that future coming you've you've got the same app store problems. Everybody else You're not gonna stream steam games to switch tennis. I let you do that. You've got you've got to get on the road. Somehow this in that context makes a lot of sense right. you're not it's not a consul reasonably actually bring down seen games. It's a device that allows you to do game streaming in a focused way is part of the steam ecosystem totally right. So it's running steam less. Which has steams version of lennox. And they've got a system for getting windows games going on that etcetera etcetera.

Virgin Galactic is giving away a couple of seats. Victoria on the next flight to space. So if you don't have a couple of 100,000 bucks, you're all set. Yeah, maybe Britney Spears could take or maybe her old man. Maybe they can put all those Britney Spears characters in one of these virgin galactic ships. And then when they get up to, uh 100 miles above the surface of the earth. They can open the door and throw him out and get an idea. Get rid of all that. It's bad. A stranger things. Hey, Jamie, look down there and then. Yeah, See you later. All right, so This is something that applies to who Who? How do you get the seat? I want to know how you get this. Can I do you? We can all maybe a blind Everyone can. Yep. This is totally open to everyone. This is through, Uh, Charity giving site called O Mais and they do. Lots of you know, if you'll see on social media, you'll see lots of celebrities doing O mais giveaways, and so they get to choose which where the money goes. In this case, um this money is going to go to Space for humanity. It's a nonprofit that send citizen astronauts from diverse racial, economic and disciplinary backgrounds to space. That's what Branson is really pushing. So all the money that you donate to O Mais will go to that. And then a winner is going to be chosen with a friend on September 29th. And your estimated flight will be sometime in 2022. The whole experience will be about 90 minutes from, you know, prep to take off and landing. Then you get a private tour from Richard Branson himself. Of the of the whole, You know the the Virgin Galactic's base there in, uh in New Mexico, And so yeah, it's a It's A really, It's a sweet deal. The thing is, like the thing that's cool about. Oh, maze is that you know you can give a $5 donation and that gives you five chances to win. No, that gives you 50 entries for $5. And so $10 gives you 100 entries and so on and so forth. So the more you give the more chances you have. But it's pretty cool and you get to go in the same in the unity. The same unity capsule that Branson just flew in right now is, uh, our friend Jeff Bezoza going to do the same thing. With his, uh, that was I think he already gave away a suit. Didn't he give away two seats to somewhat to someone who was nominated? I thought I thought that was the blue origin one Um, that might have been SpaceX, though. I don't remember. But, yeah, I mean, I think they're probably all going to do something like this. Part of yesterday's download at D J V show dot com is a description a very descriptive description. Of what visas is rocket ship Looks like So you want to get a hold of that? That's wonderful. Also me Stanley Cup and getting indented. Jennifer drinks champagne out of it. Uh and Victoria feeds a horse out of it. That's all part of the highlight of yesterday. Plus, we talked about Charlie Robinson passing away at the age of 75. And the Burger King where they said to it, They said they were not happy with the manager, so they all quit. That's an idea. You're not happy with the boss. Just quit. There's so many jobs that go wanting their And now available. We can, you know, choose your job. So you don't like the one? You gotta go get another one. Check it out here. The podcast at D J V show dot com or wherever you get your podcasts. The Emmys have come out or nominations have come out and we were talking about this half the air. There are no network programs. Anywhere to be well know that there are there are some. It's just the bosses in there. Yeah, Yeah. And blackish. Um which I think this is us as NBC blackish is ABC. Yeah, Yeah, there's some. And then there who decides who gets nominated who decides it's kind of like the Radio Hall of Fame was in that group. It's Victoria J and me. We just go through up. Yeah. What? You tell me the radio Hall of Famer Utah. I'm talking about the Emmys. Both were the Illuminati. Good for you. Write the bill. The burgers, Trilateral lists. They're all in there. Yeah. So what was different this year, though, Is that the crown which you know everybody loves the crown, and now we're kind of in modern times with Princess Di. And the Mandalorian, which is the Star Wars series on Disney. Plus they both got 24 nominations each, which is huge. And then Ted Lantawan division, which is kind of a sleeper hit. And then Ted Lasso the Jason Sudeikis. What's one division? I don't know that show. Jay, You're a fan of one division. Yeah, it's with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, its characters from the Marvel cinematic universe. This was just a mini series. There's not going to be another season. But it was fantastic. It was great. She, um, wanted they call it Wanda Vision Is that so? Elizabeth Olsen's character's name is Wanda and then pull back knees is vision. But it also was kind of like they filmed this in front of a lot of pieces of this in front of a live studio audience kind of sitcom style, So they went through the fifties and the sixties seventies eighties. They went through all those sitcoms in the way that every time I see a clip of it, I'm like God, that's weird. It was very wonderfully died, and it kind of it goes into real time. And then in this, you know this Wanda Vision Ask television series. It's great. So I'm looking at the outstanding comedy series. I see The Kaminsky method is in there If you haven't seen that. That's a very good show. That is good. Yeah, it really is a good show, and I think I told you last week. When you find out the Mel Brooks real name is Comiskey, and there's a little inside to Hawaii. This show is called Kaminsky Method. It wasn't just something that they drew out of a hat. It was sort of in tribute to him as a character. All the people that are in a Alan Arkin, I think is one of the greatest. He is such a terrific emergen. He always plays the sorts of rules. And even though Douglas Michael Douglas looks so old, I think now he's aged so much since he had that cancer. He's still He's very He's still got it. I think, in other words, well, he's nominated two so he has a chance to win. Um, I think probably the favorite is going to be Jason Sudeikis for Ted Lasso. He didn't win the Emmy last. I didn't have never even seen that. What's that about? He's the he's the US He's an American. Um Is it basketball or football? I never remember. Think football. He's an American football coach who gets hired to go coach, a British soccer team and the reason that he's hired even though he doesn't know he doesn't even know the rules of soccer is because there's an ugly divorce happening amongst the owners of the team..

Billionaire Richard Branson landed safely back on Earth after a successful flight aboard a Virgin Galactic spacecraft yesterday. Everything I've dreamt about since I was a kid. Came through and more today and and and Baby spice. And he'd be Jeff Bastos. Blue Origin launch by more than a week, reporting on this in the Washington Post Christian Davenport, who joins Taylor van sites on the KOMO news line, so near enough to two decades of work went into this trip and Virgin Galactic as we've talked about before seen some tragedy along the road, did everything go according to plan over the weekend. Yeah, it seemed to go flawlessly. And you know, Richard Branson finally fulfilled this dream of going to the edge of space. He did it with a full cabin. There were three other crew mates with him all Virgin Galactic. Employees who were flying along on a test flight to sort of get a sense of what the experience would be for paying customers. You know, ultimately later this year early next, they want to open up their space tourism business. And there were two pilots on board as well. So a total of six people made it to space and this was, you know a big deal. For the company. And for Richard Branson himself who founded Virgin Galactic Way back in 2000 and four hoping initially to start flying people by 2000 and seven. Obviously, that didn't happen. It took a lot longer than they anticipated. As you mentioned they did have some setbacks. Along the way. There was a fatal accident in 2014 where the space plane came apart mid flight and it killed one of the pilots and injured the other pilot who had the parachute down. But they you know, um, went back. Made some modifications to the spacecraft stayed at it, and here we are. Now they're on the cusp of flying pain customers and you got to go to this launch in New Mexico at Spaceport America. Tell me a little bit about this place because once paying passengers are accepted by Virgin Galactic, I understand there's a pretty significant infrastructure. Built up around space tourism. Yeah, but Virgin Galactic facility in New Mexico. It's outside of Las Cruces, New Mexico, Um In the in the desert there and these beautiful mountains surrounded and spaceport America itself as this taxpayer funded facility that cost $220 million, and it really does sort of fit into the landscape of New Mexico there and the sort of modern Miracle almost kind of looks like a mirage when you get out there, and that's where Virgin Galactic will do its astronaut training. Getting the pan customers ready to fly where they keep of the spacecraft. Remember, this is not a rocket that launches vertically. That's what blue origin will use for the capsule on top. This is a space plane that is tethered to the belly of a mothership, a twin fuselage airplane that brings it up to about 45,000 ft or so and then releases the space plane and the pilot. It's the engines and turned and they go as fast as Mach three, going almost straight up, and then they come back down and land that Spaceport America and they're in space for about 3 to 4 minutes, and they get some weightlessness around them. Certainly an exciting time. I think to be covering the space industry as if it's not an interesting topic as it is Christian Davenport with US on common news, who covers the space industry for the Washington Post, and Christian will keep an eye out for your coverage of the blue origin launch in about eight days or so, Yeah, maybe I'll talk to you next week. I hope so. Christian Davenport on common. It was with us. And that's Cuomo's Taylor Vance Ice. Common news time is 3 40. I think we've got a sports report in there somewhere. Oh, no, We've got Bill Sports Life. Got the real deal. EJ. Yes, you do. Let's talk some storm basketball. Seattle learned the weekend split against the Phoenix Mercury. They're in first place in the W N b A with the 16 and five record, And now we've got the Olympics an all Star break. Obviously, we've had you know, players gone different lineups, but At the end of the day. I think just bringing energy and just playing alongside one another. We're messing very well. And obviously we're gonna go into this break stories going to come back with a gold medal lose going to come back with a medal. I'm going to the beats. Ah, there's the game plan for Mercedes Russell.

I suspect to kind of articulate that all that being said this is basically a pre revenue company and with eleven billion dollar market cap heading into that. I couldn't see too many scenarios especially with the blue origin plate coming in a week or so where this was going to go well for them. After the event so to me you could have looked at the options. Market the skew in the calls the demand for calls versus downside puts was off the charts. It was like that of puts. That was telling me that things are a little bit at some. Yes exactly so. So karen feinerman does the space race interest. You is there. Is there something that gets you excited about whether or not virgin galactic is something that you want to buy on a seventeen percent dip. Well i i'm somewhat swayed. I'm the opposite. Peter lynch by what you like. I would so hate to go on space. Travel this kind of flight. It's so there's no way. But the thing that does interest me is ultra-supersonic space travel. You know i think united airlines just placed in order for planes that can get you from new york to london and three and a half hours. That to me is interesting. It's interesting as potential business. This is sort of a no not so interesting to me here. I have none nothing in this case no pun intended. Nothing in the space. All right well. There is still time to vote by the way guys..

Micron released their q. Three f twenty one quarter results after market close last night that were received with scepticism by the market. In my opinion the results were outstanding in virtually every aspect alas given fears expressed by wall street analysts during the conference call. Mike run close down by two point. Two percent on five point seven million shares in the after hours market. This article is short but necessary rebuttal of wall. Street's interpretation of yesterday's results. I detail on the made quarter results disclosed revenue of seven point four two billion versus six point two four billion for the prior quarter and five point four four billion for the same period last year operating margin for the quarter jumped to thirty one point nine percent from the previous february quarter of twenty point two percent and the prior fiscal year of eighteen percent. This demonstrated the outstanding operating leverage inherent in the business non gap net income of two point one seven billion or a dollar eighty eight per diluted. Share there's no ambiguity in the clear surprise to market consensus that stood at revenue of seven point two three billion and non gap. Eps of a dollar seventy one. The surprise of ten percent on earnings for the quarter is reflection of the operating leverage inherent in rising average selling prices of both dram and nand from the earnings prepared remarks. Micron is confident that digital demand from a more diverse range of end markets will continue to provide a talent to operating margins the higher volumes and it continued assent in. Asp's shock continues here. A snapshot of current street consensus shows the surprise particularly on revenue. A raise of three hundred million for the quarter so why the negative reaction share price. The negative reaction of the market may be attributed to two causes a misunderstanding of the comment digital memory supply chains going for a just in time to just in case configuration and a raising of the capital expenditure forecast by micron. Shock includes here the possible. Negative interpretation is that analysts jumped on the fact that microns customers may now be adding inventory to create a buffer and hence leads to more uncertainty and orders. There's a new customer inventory that adds to the supply as the industry is moving from just in time to just in case inventory but this is entirely rational for the industry having been stalled say in an assembly of vehicle. Due to the shortage of a four dollar microcontroller the concern expressed by analysts is totally misplaced. Overall seeking alpha authors skew bullish. Micron with five very bullish five bullish one neutral and one bearish. That concludes this week..
