MSNBC Blames Conservatives for Colorado Nightclub Shooting

"The folks over at MSD and see they have finally figured out who to blame for this shooting at the gay club in Colorado Springs, cut 6, please. The theory is if you're fearful enough, you're not going to push back. But what we need to see happening is the exact opposite. We need to see accountability and consequences. So first, a real quick hate crime charge here on top of the homicide charges, I applaud that. That tells me, prosecutors and police, they found quickly what they needed. That means they know this was a bias crime. This is likely, and since we've heard reports that the subject isn't cooperating with police, that means they likely found clear and convincing evidence on his devices. If he's a consumer of the people we just rattled off from Lauren boebert to Tucker Carlson, let's get it out. Let's get it out at trial. Let's expose it for what it is. Name it and shame it. He's a consumer of these people and those people should pay civil consequences from the victims. Yeah, that's a heavy dose of grade 8 crap. Ladies and gentlemen, what we do know about this attacker is that he is 22 years old. He's a Mormon. I don't know if he likes to get Marie. I don't know. Just because you're Mormon, doesn't make come on, grace, just because you're a Mormon doesn't mean you like Donnie and Murray. Or the handsome. So the guy was a Mormon. So it's not like he's some sort of Southern Baptist. Or I don't know, Presbyterian. Why am I not picking on your denomination grace? Just step away from the microphone. You're just making up for the weeks loss. I am, I am here. But the whole point of this is that there's no proof that this guy we still even know if it is in fact a hate crime. But here's what here's what we do know that they have a George Soros district attorney in Colorado Springs, and this Yahoo let this guy walk when he threatened to blow up his mother.

Core Scientific Sliding Toward Bankruptcy

"Let's just go through what we know so far about core scientific course scientific is the largest North American publicly listed minor. It has about 30 X a hash with about half of that being self mining and then another half being hosted for other companies. Of course, scientific has about 30 X a hash online is the largest North American listed public minor about half of that exa hash is its own self mining operation and the other half is hosted for other companies and now all of that could be crumbling down. We're not quite sure what this entails. Like compute north a few weeks ago, we saw that they went to chapter 11 and those assets were put up for sale in some instances in other instances. So it looks like compute north is running them. Oftentimes the chapter 11 can mean that users just restructuring companies, sometimes it means that you're selling everything in the company will dissolve. We don't even know if they're in chapter 11 yet as well. This has not been a filing for that. It's just a notice about their finances, not being in order. And then they can not make payments on their debt for October and November, of course, scientifics ticker did not respond well to any of this news. It's down about 80% on the week and it's down below 20 cents per share this morning looking at Yahoo, which is incredibly rough. I think it's actually done worse than its spac number at this point, which is pretty tough. And in fact, only in January of this year. So it's been a bit about ten month run. terms of their debt and finances, they have about 500 million in assets, those assets might be a little pumped right now, just based on the assets being measured a few months ago. And mining markets have definitely gone down. And then bills are also quite high about a $1 billion. So there's some tough stuff going on with them. Matt going to hand it over to you. Yeah, we've talked about you've heard about minor capitulation for a while now. And we don't know if this is the moment of maximum pain yet, but we have to be close, right? The biggest hosting provider, the biggest self minor, you said around 30 X a hasher, somewhere around, I think, 15% of total hash rate right now. I mean, this is a behemoth. And the mining industry, right? And likely chapter 11, bankruptcy is around the corner. I think the story here, like digging into some of the numbers and some of their filings, it sort of seems to me like interest payments was a major factor here.

"Other thing that we have to drive home, right? I don't have in front of me, but is it 8 out of the top ten states? Most crime word and states are red states. They're Republican states. I mean, the problem is, what was that debate in Oklahoma with Kevin stitt? The governor debate. Yeah. The woman running against him is half Meister. That sounds right, yes. I'm not related to hoffa or for her. But she said absolutely, of course. As Democrats tend to do, she cited a statistic correctly that crime is worse per CAPiTA under Kevin state in Oklahoma than in New York or California. And all he was like, oh, what are you not an entrepreneur at Nacho? Do you believe I had to times worse here? Because all the yahoos will go, oh yeah, that couldn't be, you know, but it's absolutely true. The problem is like you were saying with these moderators, they right there should have said yes, that is true. That statistic is true. I'm way more frightened when I go to go visit family in Louisiana about crime. Than I am in New York because, you know, you know why? Because we're used to being with people. We're used to looking at and, you know, being out and actually, you know, at least noticing what's going on, and sometimes even people that don't look like you. Yeah, I mean, you know, yes, you're gonna find a crime every now and then where everybody where nobody did anything, because everybody was too scared, but it's like, I'm gun states. They're the Yahoo gun states. Of course they're more dangerous than the murder rates are higher. Everybody solves everything with a gun there, right? Yeah, I'm more afraid walking around the neighborhood where my family lives because I because nobody is out. There's nobody outside. It is empty. And it's like walking through a ghost town because everybody's huddled inside their houses.

She said, well, how dare you question I'm a Trump supporter because she wanted to talk about Trump. And I was like, 'cause I just said, hey, what do you want to tell Todd about Trump? And she's like, well, what do you think? I'm like, lady, you're supposed to tell me what you think. And he said, how dare you question I'm a Trump supporter, you guys are not true constitutionalists.

He was so nice, you know, he just he literally answered the phone like a normal person. He was like, hello, how are you? And I was like, I'm doing very well. How are you? So it wasn't one of these where it's a secretary. And then the secretary put you in touch with the chief of staff. I have no way. Please hold for the president. He just makes his own calls.

"Liz Cheney has declared that her post election mission. Is to keep Trump out of The White House. And she seems to think that this is a noble calling, in fact, she's convinced her dad, Dick Cheney, that she is on this chivalric quest and Dick Cheney made a commercial for Liz before the election basically saying Donald Trump is the most dangerous figure that has ever in all of American history. It shows you how much history Dick Cheney knows. But anyway, Liz Cheney is apparently considering running for president. To keep Trump out of The White House. Now, the guys at Yahoo news and YouGov decided to run a poll and ask people, in a sense, project forward to 2024. And see what might be effect of a Liz Cheney candidacy for the presidency B and the very amusing result of this poll is that if Liz Cheney were to actually run for president, she would actually help Trump.

Dinesh Condemns the Judge in the Whitmer Kidnapping Trial

"I'd like to talk about the Whitmer kidnapping case. Now to refresh your memory, this is a case that has occurred sort of in two waves. There was a trial. And two defendants, Daniel Harris, and Brandon cassata were found not guilty. Not guilty on the basis that the FBI and trapped them into pursuing this kidnapping plot. So it was the FBI that really did it, put them up to it. And the jury just didn't believe the government didn't believe the Biden DoJ didn't believe the FBI. And so Daniel Harris and Brandon are walking free. But the other two guys who were on trial, Adam Fox and Barry Croft, you had a hung jury, which is which means there was obviously at least someone maybe more than one that wanted to convict. And others who wanted to acquit and they couldn't come to an agreement, and so there's the second trial going on right now. In fact, it just concluded, and the judge is giving instructions to the jury. Now, a lot has come out in the trial. And by and large, once again, it's been shown that the FBI played a very active and I would say even aggressive role in driving this plot forward. And the defense has been pretty effective in bringing this out. The defense's theory is that you've got these yahoos and a lot of them were very angry about COVID. They were very angry at Whitmer. They were also high on pot, they would meet together and basically get into these bragging Sessions. Oh, we're gonna teach our lesson. We're gonna do this. We're gonna do that. And but it was all talk.

"yahoo" Discussed on Wisdom From The Top

"You really felt like you had to do? The first year I had to figure out how to keep the great people who were there and I had to figure out how to get more great people in. And I talked a lot about a flywheel that I really believe in, which is you hire great people. They build great products. Those great products attract consumers, those consumers attract advertisers, the advertisers pay you, then you take the money and you reinvest it in the people, you hire even better people and more people and they build better products and they get more consumers and you get this very positive flywheel. And if you look at Google and Facebook and others in the space, they're on that very positive flywheel. And because you've got a business that's really working and attracting all of the users and the advertisers, it makes it much easier to attract employees. And so the focus was the people it was on hiring and ultimately would develop into a talent acquisition strategy because over the years at Yahoo, I would go on to buy approximately four dozen companies. And some of them were big strategic acquisitions where they changed the overall course of the company and our product offering, but a lot of them, the vast majority of them were talent acquisitions, you know, for, you know, in some cases, a few $100,000 a few $1 million, but we're most of the value is actually in the forward stock packages for the employees. So they were big dollar numbers, but they were basically bringing in teams that could hit the ground running. Did you find? I mean, coming into a company like Yahoo. I mean, you essentially were tasked with this huge responsibility with saving this company, right? And that is a, that's an enormous challenge, right? That's a possibly an impossible task. Did you find that the people around you the people at Yahoo really believed in that mission, or was there, I don't know, was there was a doubt did you sense that there was sort of doubt baked into the culture of the company. I'll answer that question in two parts. One is with an anecdote and another is with sort of a sort of a process we went through. On my fourth or 5th day at the company, I'm an introvert by nature. It was hard for me to do this, but in trying to get integrated as deeply in the company as possible, I would make a point. I would go down to the cafeteria, get my lunch and the lines that everybody else, and I would sit in the cafeteria for about two hours. And just like, and anybody wanted to walk up and say whatever they wanted to say to me, could walk up and say whatever they're going to say to me, and I went and I went on that way for probably like two to four weeks when I first got there. Just anybody who wanted to come up and talk to me could come up and talk to me. And when I was in the lunch line, somebody came over and tapped the front of my tray, a little fast tap to get and get my attention. And I looked up and he said, is it go time? And I just got the report right before lunch that 24% of the company had left in the previous eating 5 months. And I said, no, don't go. I've only been here for four days. Please don't go. I thought he was saying, I'm about to leave. Lady, I'm leaving, just let you know, like, today's my last day. I'm sorry, I had sort of departures on the brain. And he said, no, that's not what I'm asking. He's like, we've all been sitting here waiting for a few years for management and the board to figure itself out. Is it go time? Can we run? Can we actually execute on the ideas that we've been excited about, that we think could matter? And I was like, by all means, go, run. Don't let me get in the way. The second piece is, you know, we basically had to come up with a process and we looked at two different things. One was performance and ability, and the other was attitude. You had people who were like, wait, they're amazing in terms of what they can get done. And they've got a great attitude. They're all in it. They're just in it to win it. And that's easy. Just keep them going. If you have a bad attitude and you're not a good performer, it's also easy. They should absolutely not be there, and we had to clear out a lot of what people would probably call Deadwood at the beginning. And then it's the two in between cases that are tricky. And what we basically did is I really think that if you've got a great attitude, but you're not performing that well. It's leadership's job to find you a role where you can be really effective. Essentially, that employee in my view is usually miscast. Another other people where you'd say, okay, like if they're a great performer, but they have a terrible attitude, our attitude is give them 6 months and watch it. But if at the end of 6 months, their attitude hasn't really turned around and it really seems like it's not going to. It's sad because they're performing well, but they probably have to go. Yeah. What did you think, did you see your role as CEO, the state positive focused cheer people on and kind of no matter? Because you had access to information about the company, which showed mixed results, right? Some acquisitions did okay, some didn't do well, obviously, tumblr is an example. The stock price was up, but the profits were down and despite that, did you feel like it was your job to go out there and always show a positive face? No, I felt like it was my job to try and get us on that positive flywheel. Right. Hire the right people, help pick the right products in the areas to invest in, figure out how to attract more of the users to these new products. Make sure that we've got advertisers that are lined up and making the business work. Folate was my job to try and get that positive flywheel started. And we had early successes there, right? Our traffic grew, our users grew. We built a beautiful suite of products. I was one of the compliments all treasure forever was about 6 months before I ended up leaving Jerry Yang, who was the really the products for a long time. Basically came to me in the founder said, you know, the product suites never been as good as shape as it is right now. Yeah, I mean, the suite of products was obviously a success. And there were others. I mean, I think the stock price doubled at a certain point from the time you started. But I have to assume that at some point along the way, you must have come to the realization that Yahoo, as a stand-alone company, just couldn't be saved. Was there a particular point in a moment? In December of 2015, we had been planning since January of that year, the past 11 months to execute a tax free spin off of our Alibaba assets. And so Yahoo, this story was complicated because we had both the operating business with its users that were increasingly mobile and growing to more than a billion. And our Internet advertising business that was stable and beginning to start to show some signs of growth, not nearly the growth of some of our competitors had, but some growth. And then we also had two very valuable investments and investment in Yahoo, Japan, and an investment in Alibaba. And by 2015, that had really become the focus of the majority of our external shareholders. And as I said, we had developed a plan to execute a tax free spin off. That plan was met with some resistance, not I guess not that surprisingly, on the part of the IRS and in parts of in some ways in China, to try and get some of that tax revenue. We are ultimately coming up with a plan that based on our reading of the tax code and our law firms reading of the tax code was going to save approximately $10 billion in taxes. And in December of 2015, after those 11 months of planning, our board canceled the tax free spin off. And so from that point on, we said, okay, what are the other options? And one of the cleaner and faster things to execute was the sale of the operating business, basically sell the operating business out of the entity and therefore leave behind an investment company that holds the Yahoo Japan investment and the Alibaba investment and at that point. I would say that is really when it became clear to me that we weren't going to be able to achieve the outcomes I had hoped for for the operating company in terms of a turnaround as an independent company. To put it in context in the greater sense for me, we made that decision. We announced it on CNBC on December 9th. Of 2015, my twins were born that night. Actually at one in the morning. Wow. And so I do remember that decision in that realization settling on me over the course of the following week or two, but there's a lot overall going on. And so I will say, can I remember an exact moment when it really hit me that we would be selling the operating business and giving up the chance for an independent turnaround? I don't really, but also those kinds of decisions are things that are arrived at over weeks, not minutes. And so it became obvious sometime between December of 2015 and the end of January 2016 when we formed a formal committee to assess those alternatives that that was the direction that the company was heading. So Yahoo sold its core business to Verizon for about four and a half $1 billion. And you stayed on while the sale was being negotiated and then you stepped down. I think in June of 2017, if you were mrsa, if you were sort of assessing your time as the CEO of Yahoo, you were doing like a 360° review of your own time. How would you assess your own role as a leader as the leader of Yahoo? I would say, you know, overall, I feel really good about the team. We were able to attract and the products, as I said, I will treasure Jerry Yang's comment forever. I feel really good about the products and the strategy in the path that we overall ourselves upon, I feel like it was a test where pencils down was called too early. And there was a comment that when I first got the CEO ship, Eric Schmidt said to me that definitely rang true at the end where he said, you know, it's interesting as CEO how few decisions you really need to make. He said, you know, you can actually delegate most of the decisions and the more decisions you delegate, the better and the better those decisions will get made. He's like, but there's a few decisions where U.S. CEO you have to make them, and you have to make them absolutely perfectly. And I definitely feel that I wish we had had more time, but ultimately our efforts ended up being cut short and we weren't able to see some of how those investments were ultimately going to work out. And I would say for the investments that we did see work out a lot of them worked out really well. They weren't all perfect. There certainly were some misses, but seeing the condition that we handed the team and the business off to in Verizon performed really, really well for them for the first few years and I would just say even during the sale and close period at Yahoo, which lasted about 18 months, the business outperformed where our internal expectations were, which as I said, that wasn't necessarily obvious at the moment we had to decide whether or not to sell the company. But hindsight is 2020. Do you think did you ever feel like you were unfairly criticized as a CEO at times because you are a woman? As I said, I tend not to focus on the gender aspect of it. I think that, you know, I'm certainly not perfect and there were a lot of decisions that deserved criticism. I feel like there are certainly were times when there was a decision that was misunderstood from the outside. That with more context wouldn't have been criticized the same way, but I think I feel it has more to do with the context that was offered as opposed to the gender. The other thing I will say is certainly there were times where the word choice around some of the criticism would have a very gender focused bend. So, you know, I think people might agree or disagree with my overall acquisition strategy. I get that and that's something that investors and the public and the companies should debate. And so I was prepared for criticism on that. That said, I don't think they would call men buying companies a shopping spree. Right. And in fact, now, with the benefit of hindsight, you can look at other companies that were active acquiring at the same time and most of the other male CEOs bought more companies and spent more money and never had the word shopping spree used with thumb. Yeah. So there were things like that where to me that's just very clear on its face that that was a gender loaded criticism. That said, you know, criticizing are we buying too many companies? Are we buying them too fast? Are we integrating them properly? All that is reasonable and rational criticism for a CEO. As I said, if anything, for me, it was more some of the word choices and the particular slants put on it, not the fact that there was criticism overall. After your experience running, I mean, you are still young. I mean, you were a young ex CEO, and really at an age when you would be recruited as a potential CEO and probably even young to be recruited as a potential CEO. Even now, could you ever imagine running a fortune 100 company or a Fortune 500 company again? Would you want to do that again? For me, it's not about fortune 100 and Fortune 500 and the size of the team. And the size of the business, I realized when we sold the company to Verizon, we needed to write the blog post that would basically announce it to the world. And at the end of it, we really said, you know, Yahoo is a company that changed the world. And very few companies do. There's a lot of very successful businesses out there. But there's only a few that change what people do all day and how they think about things. And Yahoo is the company that popularized the Internet. And Google, I've been privileged to be a part of two different companies that changed the world in my view in a really fundamental way. Yahoo popularized the Internet, Google absolutely democratized information in a way that no other invention to date has. And for me,.

DeSantis Signs Bill Stripping Disney of Special Tax Status

"The headline this morning from Yahoo news, which is the main story in headlined link from the drudge report as this, quote, Florida ends Disney's special status as culture war flares. As culture war flares. I love that. Passive voice. May I give you the first two sentences of the story because the tilt of the story is not passive. It has blame. It has a responsible party, quote Florida's legislature scrapped Disney's self governing status in a Orlando theme park on Thursday. In a move widely seen as retaliation in a bitter row over what has become known as the don't say gay law. The bill, which is expected to be signed into law by governor Ron DeSantis, is the latest faint in a U.S. culture war undertaken by the conservative presidential hopeful that has left Disney floundering close quote. Working backward just a moment, the story wants you to think two things immediately up front. One that Ron DeSantis is doing this because he's a presidential hopeful. And two, what governor desantis and his Republican Party have done is retaliate for a response to a faint in our culture war that was commenced. Undertaken started begun is the right synonym here by Ron DeSantis. Got it? Culture, war equals bad, and it was started by desantis and the Republicans. None of this is true, nor should it be accepted as true. This is opinion

A Belief in Racism Permeates Modern Philosophy

"We find in the modern era, a belief in racism and racial superiority. That is upheld not just by slave owners and by yahoos and by people who are in a sense you can say full of prejudice, but you can find racism at the highest levels of western civilization. You find it in David Hume in the 18th century Emmanuel Kant. Also in the 18th century and that in the 19th century in Hegel, and I picked these three figures because they are three of the most eminent philosophers of the modern era. And here is David Hume. I am apt to suspect the negroes and in general all the other species of men. To be naturally inferior to the whites. And then he goes on to say, there was never any civilized nation of any other complexion than white. No ingenious manufacturers among them, no arts, no sciences, such a uniform and constant difference could not happen. In so many countries and ages, if nature had not made an original distinction between these breeds of men. Now, I'll come back to this, but we see in here some of the seeds of how racism came to be not only invented, but widely believed and believed by highly intelligent people like the philosopher

And I was kind of offended the headline was written this way. It was from the auto blog on Yahoo. And it said, SUVs and trucks are more likely to hit pedestrians than cars. I mean, all you have to do is apply any city street, and you know what's happening. People who drive SUVs, people who drive trucks aren't paying as close of attention. It's a power thing. It's a safety thing. They feel safer on the road. But at the same time, they always seem to pay less attention. Secondly, it goes to figure when they're up higher, you can't see below. You can't see pedestrians crossing streets, because you're not as close to them as the cars are. I see it all the time, big pickup trucks, SUVs, limited visibility, causing more accidents, and that's a headline in a news story. But I guess I shouldn't complain, because sometimes you get a headline that doesn't match the news story at all. And it's on purpose. It's clickbait.

"Does the new yahoo or like yahoo take to like. Where do you guys fit in the grand scheme of the digital advertising ecosystem because feels like we're talking about a lot of things. I mean there's the court at tech there's nafta's experimentation with that. There's content commerce bedding there's Just lots of of stuff going on that. You're you're lots of fingers in lots of pies. But where does that place yahoo just in in the digital ego ecosystem at large. Yes so when you think about the the advertising ecosystem We see ourselves and You know i. I think To an extent our customers feedback is consistent with that. Which is a high growth leaving home for advertisers publishers given our tech the scale of our brands partners and our first party. That and i would say We take a community garden approach. Which differentiates us from Some of the larger walled gardens. If you will as well as some of the single stack players. That may lack i party. They doubt or they may lack the other side of this start. So so if you're only esp or you're only ns sp so You know as we think about this and as we think about take two we see our subsets as being that enabler of advertising in the changing these italico system when you think about emerging channels or you think about that abbreviation of identifiers again on on that front. We recently launched Yahoo connect tied the next generation solutions. Which are seeing i lord of adoption in the market and are tied to supporting that brother. Ecosystem in very unique ways had skated. When you say community garden maybe just define that. Because i have a sense of what i think. It means anything people You know use it. In a certain way like the opposite of walled gardens. But how are you defining community garden. Yeah lilly me. Let me use A couple of examples One example. Which i just mentioned the yahu connectivity so connected the is our solution for the cookie less work and we connect i-i've never it's a people. I very very large scale identity graph. That is coming from our trusted. I party relationships in all of the iconic brands that we operate so these days permission based We get that permission from tressler relationships with consumers and essentially the walled garden approach to that would be to say..

"Successful with content to commerce actually across all of the different brands. So take something like in gadget for example Very effective in terms of selling you know because people are they looking for the latest technologies whether it's e phones or airports or you may be the latest foreign or whatever it might be You know we've been very successful there in terms of being able to place the opportunity to make that purchase on the spot And that's from engage gadget all the way through to lock style yahu life through things like you know up selling and whether it's subscription services or different things like that so that's been really successful for us on that transaction side of things. It's not just commerce. We will have been Over the last year and a half we also have moved into transactions with sports betting as well so again taking that really great scale. We have with the sports out. Fantastic ability to provide Lettuce sports schools and content. And things like that and then now being able to let folks In states where it's legal to be able to bet That's also being very successful. So it's definitely across all demographics in the end. The strategy really is to bring people. We want to bring people closer to passions whether it's sports or finance or lifestyle entertainment and then ultimately being able to allow them to transact across yahoo. If if we if we can provide that service for them yeah. I wanna talk more about that sports betting partnership that you have with mgm. I believe Those partnerships are a really kind of interesting in rather lucrative area in the media space right now because the commission rates are affiliate rates. I guess that you can get through. That is rather significant I'll let you fill in the fill in the blanks. If you have a percentage you can share but i was hoping you can kind of talk about how that partnership came about and why. It seemed like i mean. Obviously yahoo has a very significant fantasy. Sports offering. But why was that a good step for your brand kind of take. Yeah so so. Who has a really long standing history in the gaming category as you said you know. We've got twenty plus years experience with yok fantasy. It's an award-winning product. It's it's recognized and gets a lot of accolades in the industry for being a really great customer experience to serve those Fantasy uses to bathe in gaming spice for a long time when The co go back to. I think it's twenty nineteen As betting started to become legalized in in states across the us it was the beginning of the opening of the category in the us. And given as you said we've got this huge sports audience as well as quite frankly a bigger audience outside of even now who sports that definitely consume sports near interested in bedding so it was a great Natural step for us to be able to again. It'd be able to serve that transaction on our platform bem. Gm is Is the partner that we went with We chose to do an affiliate partnership. Quite frankly. who's it was at faucets. Puff a to be able to get into the category set up. You know we've got a fabulous scaled uses we've got. We're not just content with technology partners so able to actually find uses. Who might be interested in betting in those states. Whether it's in your fantasy yahoo sports particularly actually one of the things. That's really interesting. Is you know. We've got yahoo fantasy. Which is what we call out free to free to play games We also have You know free to win like slates like each week where you can make predictions and make bets on to win. Cash prizes We also have what we call paid away which is a daily fantasy and we're actually finding that a lot of those uses who despite in some of our other gaming categories are the ones that have Have the most interested in and then going through a bed so to your point. It's a great way for us to one. Serve the audience in a much more engaging way and have them come back more often and also. It's a great way for us to diversify revenue as you indicated beyond ad-supported into transaction being able to get that affiliate revenue. Yeah are you able to share with that. Affiliate percentages just got. But i'll it's lucrative because we're one of the things that's really interesting about and the reason that bet. Mgm locks us as a partner is because you know as you you know. You count watches sports at the moment without being seeing an ad for the various sports betting playas trying to recruit new bettas into the platform as each state opens up without huge scale. We're a great partner for for someone like a bit. Mgm to be able to find audience. Serve them really well. And as i said because with had we've been leading the way in fantasy for two decades It was a natural at the natural place for us to be able to really serve the audience as well as civic right on like better. Gm as well. Yeah absolutely and just for the audience's own kind of knowledge Both myself and my colleague. Max has covered sports betting and publishers In the past so you can check out some of our coverage digital dot com to figure out maybe what some of those affiliate percentages might look like across the board For the industry. But now that makes sense. It is like to your point a very lucrative area so as definitely curious about that You did mention though that you see the most interest coming from Audiences that already participate in some of the yahoo fantasy Offerings has this at all appealed to a new audience. Like have you seen this yahu sports or yahoo fantasy Audience grow because you. Now have these betting integrations and the partnership with mgm or is it kind of a closed Circuit of where the audiences coming from for that. Actually you you've hit on something that i've found incredibly interesting Of what we've been learning over the last eighteen months. So i mentioned like a really strong affiliated at affinity between how Let's say a fantasy players at Daily fantasy players and betting one of the things. That's been really interesting is actually. We're also have been able to recruit bettas actually outside of sports properties. I i. I think i'm trying to remember. I think something like around about twenty five percent of about twenty to twenty five percent. I think it is of the That is that. We've recruited actually have come outside of yahoo sports or yahoo fantasy so think about the who mail uses or yahoo finance uses. Who maybe haven't yet discovered yahoo sports About we've been able to recruit them and the reason that we've been able to do that is over the last year also we've really been doubling down on our How platforms like personalization capabilities. Right so i wanna be able to not. Just serve you everyday with yahoo finance. Because i know you're interested in the investment In investing and managing portfolio on yahoo finance. If you also have an interest in sports. I want to also be able to save you sports. Maybe you have an interested in lifestyle and you wanna look at yahoo life. As we've been able to develop that platform it not only benefits us to be able to better serve audiences with all of the different things that they feel passionate about. But it's also helped us to be able to find you know and serve customers in other parts of the platform things like betting. So as i said about. I think about twenty twenty five percent of alabama's actually we've been able to find in yawkey male or other places like that particularly in the us. Where at the moment. I think if i remember correctly it's about nine states now open with bedding and it's it's it's it's you know it's it's really interesting category. It's growing. I don't know if you've Have to listen to one of your one of your tossed but even increasingly people. Are you know thinking about betting. And i mean even women in the gen z. Audiences as well. It's not necessarily just hot cool. Sports fans which i think is actually really interesting. Yeah absolutely to your point about wanting to find these touch points where someone coming into. Yahoo finance might also be interested in yahoo. life might also be interested in sports Is that part of a larger kind of first party. Data strategy that you're trying to hone with maybe like more contextual data and insights in that way is that kind of like a larger initiative for the company. It actually. is we As i said. I think personal when i think about the the internet used to be like you want piece of content goes to ends of people Now it's much more one to one experience and over the course of the last year we've been spending a lot of time investing in technology to be able to really focus on personalization and be able to civil dances on to your point we have a lot of Fest potty data with third biggest You know digital internet player in the world which is fantastic. That first date is really important. And it helps us to be able to. As i said serve audiences if i if i know that you're interested in. I don't know maybe you're following apple. If i if i know you're sitting apple than when the next iphone comes out we can make sure that we're getting that information to you as fast as possible so it definitely trying to really focus on making sure that we're getting the right content to the right person at the right time in the most relevant way possible. So it's been it's been really really interesting we call it on actually internally out nexgen yahoo which is how we think about if you come into our platform maybe coming from in the know. We'll maybe you coming from renews Take talk maybe you coming through search We wanna make sure that as you land on yahoo one of our absolute about websites that we were able to serve with. Not just the one thing that you came full but other things that you're interested in so definitely a an area that we're doubling down on so i do wanna talk a little bit more about commerce in going back to More maybe the lifestyle or that type of realm The very i guess. Product focus I think we we spoke in the past. You mentioned that chappel video something that you were thinking about. Maybe live video as well For for shopping purposes key talk a little bit about that strategy. And how you're going about. Approaching that i know especially live Almost lake digital. Qbc model is something. A lot of publishers are thinking about an. It's coming up in different ways. Amazon's testing it network. We have a podcast on that company in particular. That's doing work in that area. What's your kind of perspective on the integration of shopping in video and I guess what is what is the hope for what that could become On your platform yet. It's it's definitely an area of focus for us Shovel video is something that we're actually experimenting on right now across the abu as well as actually you mentioned in the noy We think that that's a it's a really interesting place to play And you know again when you can help. A customer consumer discover something and then help them to be out of seamlessly and purchase it. It's it's a delightful experience. You know one of the areas that actually. I'm most proud of from earlier. This year was we actually did a At immersive commerce experience actually with a partnership with rebecca minkoff The designer Actually was for neo fashion. Wake back in february It was amazing because it will. We were able to bring her collection to aglow audience and allow people to be able to seamlessly transact in and purchase it especially in in the pandemic where people weren't able to be on the on the floor the at the neo-fascist week so that was a really great experience for us in that. It's shambo video the other thing that we're really interesting that immersive experience. We've got a fantastic capabilities around you know via throughout Actually riot is the studio that we Where we've actually got a lot of that technology. Over the course of the last eighteen months we've been expanding to olivet yawkey brands and through immersive experiences like that and then Allowing customers to be out of transact is something that we're really excited about an actually hopefully. I'll talk to you again soon because coming up in september. We're actually having a way. We're spending that partnership even though ford fashion week in september so lots lots of opportunities there as you said. I think it's a great a great space for us to play. And i think it's a really exciting area for for growth across the category. We'll be right back after this message from our sponsor. I'm james o'brien head of production at custom.

"We're trickled down into whatever unit that we're in the larger company nothing changed. It did eventually but these sorts of things. Don't change much overnight but a lot has happened. Since then verizon made aol and yahoo into oath oath to sort of be just that didn't really stick and then renamed itself rise in media in two thousand eighteen twenty eighteen also when go ninety remember verizon's video service that sort of just didn't get any traction and that shut down so i think sure the company's going in another direction and also just doesn't have a good track record for a lot of original content. Now think of something. Like i dunno on the on the Journalism side tech crunch and gadget read those blogs all the time every day in fact and a lot of the video efforts which was something that i was part of way back in the day. They don't really exist anymore. So i yeah. The add the The ad tech is is a very different beasts than it was in twenty fifteen two thousand sixteen. Yeah i also fear for the future of yahoo mail because if apollo is going to make this into an ad tech sports betting content company You don't really want to be running a mail providers curious What what they do with those little corners of the business That that don't really fit into the the profile of of this being a slim and trim content company like red ventures owning seen it Or even further back. Ziff davis Which which had the magazines bought by an equity company and continue to operate the magazines for a long time. even though zelina was part of nut. Ziff davis itself was not stuff like that so there will be some shakeout from this. Yahoo finance yahoo sports. Those are very successful. Still still widely used tech crunch and gadget very successful. I feel like those are probably safer hands now. To be honest. Sony announced a partnership that will see it integrate discord into quote your social and gaming experience on playstation network. End quote by early twenty. Twenty two don't know any details other than that quote. Sony made a minority investment in discords latest funding round. It's not clear. What the integration is gonna. Look like whether it's a dedicated discord app on playstation Integration of discord and friends list seems to make sense could be something else. This comes after the wall street journal reported last month. That dischord had ended. Its talks with microsoft about a potential acquisition. So you're not going to see discord sold while you're going to see. Is them partner with sony and sony cash in on. Ipo is what it looks like. Yeah i mean. I used scored every single day.

In friday's retail sales report could also signal some additional pent-up. Consumer demand could come back for goods consumption in the coming months. Bryson added if sales exceed our expectations however it would be further support of our forecast that after a year defined by the virus households spent in record numbers this holiday season as the yearn for comfort and normalcy.
