What A Victoria's Secret Spinoff Could Mean For L Brands

"Brands a spinning off. Victoria's secret as a separate company. You might remember that last year almonds was set to sell. Victoria's secret to sycamore partners. For like five hundred something million dollars that fell through once the pandemic had we understand. It was a bad time to make long-term decisions but albertsons still wanted to sell off. Victoria's secret which is not quite as lucrative as the only other brand it's still has in its portfolio bath and body works if you have missed the first seven years of the show. Get you out. Victoria secret wrote on the hyper sexualization train for years until the twenty teams came along and decided like we weren't exactly keen on women being seen only in push. Ross so they have a dealing with some some slumps in revenue over the recent years. Sense the sick more deal fell through. Albertans had a couple of offers to buy. Victoria's secret but they rejected them all because the company thinks victoria secret is worth more than those offers. It's probably worth between four and six billion dollars but al brands decided that offers of like three billion ish just weren't enough so it decided to spin off victoria secret into its own company. It's going to happen later this summer. My question is is this. A good coffee all brands. Is this a good call for. Victoria's secret karn discuss. Yes and yes. I've been waiting for this to happen. Listen a soap. Company was keeping that thing afloat for a long time. Bath and body works was making bank as they should. I've done a lot of research on that company. And i like them but what this means is if they get spun off. They have to do their individual earnings report on their own which means they have to be accountable for all their actions. It cannot rely on another company to keep them going. I think we're gonna see some more accountability with some vicky hush hush

QFC to shut down two Seattle stores; said decision 'accelerated' after city's hazard pay ordinance

"City council mandates a four dollar an hour hazard pay increase for grocery store workers so one grocery store chain announces in direct response. The closing of two of their stores.

Kfc's been here since we opened up they cue of c. says the capitol hill store on fifteenth avenue and the one in wedgwood are under performing stores. That will have a shutdown in about sixty days. Unfortunately these two stores were already struggling financially and then the city council mandate really just pushed it over the edge where it just was not a feasible option anymore. The new four dollar an hour payback's for grocery workers in the city of seattle impacts as many as ten thousand employees at stores like ufc. Fred meyer safeway albertsons. Critics say the timing of the. Qc announcement seem suspect to announce on february sixteenth. thirteen days. Later that they're gonna close to stores. Seems a little too convenient time wise to me.

Arizonans 65 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting next week

"This hour we took you live to the Arizona Department of Health Services Update on the covert 19 vaccine distribution. We had some technical difficulties, but we have those resolved and we want to bring you now. The rest of that briefing with all the details. Here's Dr Carol Chris, director of our State Health department. So now provide some updates on covert 19 vaccine and implementation of our program here in Arizona. One of the exciting updates that we made today. It is not this week that is not reflected on our chart. It will not be reflected until Tuesday, but Arizona made the decision that Arizonans 65 8 years of age and older are now prioritized. To be vaccinated against covert 19 in our prioritized phase one be along with our education and child care services and our protective services occupations, which includes law enforcement, corrections and fire. This recommendation was approved by the Arizona Vaccine and Antiviral Prioritization Advisory Committee, which is intended to protect those who are most at risk for severe outcomes due to Cove in 19. So we know that those there are over the age of 65 have all higher likelihood of hospitalization and death, and by be getting people vaccinated in several weeks from now we hope to reduce the strain on Arizona's hospitals. And you can find additional information on our website at easy Health. Doc Dub slash find vaccine. And on Tuesday, we will be updating that to provide clarity about which counties are going to be vaccinated the 65 to 74 year old age group at their vaccination sites. We also have counties that have moved into our prioritized. Phase one B and we have some that are fully in phase one B. So if you look at the map of Arizona, the counties that Aaron Black are still in phase one A. So does our healthcare providers and our long term care facility, residents and staff. When you look at our darker gray, that's the prioritized phase one be, so that's going to be the face that we just talked about. Currently. We are vaccinating age 75 older. Along with educators and child care and their support staff and our protective services occupations. When we increase to one be that also includes our Sent can keep our society functioning. That will be people who work in the transportation industry, including gas stations, shipping those types of things. The food industry, including agriculture. S so there's a large number of there's a large list of employees that are eligible for the one B category that is located on our website. Um But you can find out what what phase Each county is in, and we update this infographic daily, and you can link to it off of easy health. Doc Club slash find a vaccine. As of today, over 232,000 doses of vaccine have been administered statewide. So now we'll move into Arizona's vaccine allocation and administration. Over the next few weeks, A DHS will be working to increase access to vaccine increase the rate of vaccination into streamline communications. So as you look at the vaccine, I'm distribution overview. Arizona currently follows a local Allocator model for vaccine distribution. Our local part partners are the backbone of the vaccine program implementation and know their counties that are no they're partners and their counties the best so our federal partners every week provide our Arizona's allocation to the state. We divide that allocation of based on priorities to our local partners, who then will determine which providers in their local jurisdiction will receive that scene for that week. We collect all of those orders on Ben. We place Arizona's full order for that week, and then the federal government will ship those orders directly to the providers that we have ordered on behalf of as vaccine becomes more and more available. We will no longer need to use this local Allocator model and providers such as pharmacies, community health centers and physician's offices will be able just to directly order vaccine from the manufacturers. So this week we received additional first dose allocations of Fizer, which were distributed again. Toe America and Pima County's All 15 counties received Madonna doses, and so we continued to reserve given the unique storage requirements for our Fizer vaccine. We continue to reserve our Majority vaccine for our local or rural health departments. Um In addition to receiving that first those first doses of visor and Madonna vaccine we have received our second doses so that we can continue vaccinating those that I've already received their first US. And have had that either 21 or 28 Day waiting period. This is Dr Cara Chris State Health director, speaking at the Health Department's covert 19 vaccination rollout. Press briefing on Katie Our news 92 3 FM. So during the week of January, 18th Arizona will have been allocated 803,150 doses total. You can see how that's been allocated across the state. You can see at the bottom where we have prioritized our CDC Long term care facility partnership by providing them with the vaccine that they need to vaccinate our Our staff and residents that are long term care facilities. And then you can also see the number of doses that have gone to the state of Arizona. Um Not all of these doses of the 803 have arrived in Arizona. A number of these doses have been allocated to, um Have been ordered for our county partners and will arrive next week. They We anticipate that with the federal holiday. Usually they arrive Monday through Wednesday. We anticipate that they will arrive Tuesday through Friday of next week. So we continue to add additional sites for vaccine administration, So we have initial phase one and phase one B vaccination sites throughout the state. We have over 200 vaccination sites on our website. We also have activated the second phase of the CDC pharmacy partnership, which began the week of December. 27th. So we initially prioritized in phase one of that partnership are skilled nursing facilities, which are highest security, long term care facilities. Um As of the end of this week, all of those facilities will have had at least their first visit from CVS or Walgreen's, and they are scheduling appointments to start assisted living facilities throughout the state next week. So as additional state. Um uh, that scene becomes available, We will be adding additional providers we've had over 730 providers on bordered with a DHS and over 800 pharmacies statewide have enrolled in the CDC pharmacy program to provide in store vaccinations. We have talked on each week about the long term care partnership that CDC put together with our pharmacy partners. So our pharmacy partners code into the facility's and vaccinate the staff and residents of that facility. Um as of this week over 140 skilled nursing facilities scheduled to receive vaccinations, and they will begin vaccinating are assisted living and our group homes starting next week. We've got over 2000 facilities enrolled in the federal program where one of the states with the highest number of facilities enrolled, and our goal is to cover approximately 450,000 residents and staff over the next couple of months. So this is part of the infographic that we post each day on our website. If you look you can see by county what phase That county is currently vaccinating. The total vaccines and ministered along with the vaccination rate per 100,000. And so you can see statewide 232,000 vaccines have been administered. Um, This may not include some of the doses that are provided by our tribal Our federal partners is this is pulled out of the States Immunization registry. So to talk about updates and announcements of this week. On Monday, we had a soft launch of the State Farm Stadium Probate 19 vaccination site. So far we've administered over 20,000 vaccinations at that site, and we are averaging apart between 203 100 vaccinations per hour. We have booked tens of thousands of appointments through January 31st and anticipate opening up additional appointments. That will be between February 1st and February 28th. Those appointments will open up on January 19th at 9 A.m.. We're very excited. Because our partners have really made this endeavor possible. It's a whole community partnership. And again, we just want to thank the Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, the Arizona Cardinals and state from Stadium Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, The Catherine and Ben I. V Foundation. Arizona State University and Walgreens. All of these, these groups are playing a large role at the site on D have made this possible. Way also are very excited about the launch of our second state run of vaccinations site. This will be located at Phoenix Municipal Stadium. We are still looking to see how many doses we will have available for that. For that site, so the number of appointments will depend on the available vaccine again. We're partnering with the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs and Arizona State University to run this site. Arizona State University currently runs a testing a saliva based testing site at this location and so they will scale up to provide vaccination administration. Again. Registrations for appointments are going to open up Tuesday, January 19th at 9 A.m. for this site. We updated our easy health. Dr. Hobbes Flash find vaccine website with an interactive map. You can go onto the map. It has all of the current locations with vaccine, you can select a sight and a box will pop up that has information about that site and a link to their registration. So not all of them. Not all vaccine providers are utilizing the state's vaccine management system. Some providers air using their own appointments software, but we will link to them whenever we have that information so that it's one stop shopping when you go to our our map. We will continue to update this map with additional vaccination sites as they come. In a couple of other exciting announcements, we have been expanding access. So a DHS activated the CDC retail pharmacy program. This is going to add up to 100 pharmacy stores over the next few weeks. The first pharmacies to come on board in Arizona are gonna be fries, Safeway and Albertsons. And so those will be included on our sites as we get notified, which pharmacies which specific pharmacy locations will have that scene? But they will be on our website and will be another source for those that are eligible to receive vaccine to go get vaccinated when this program becomes fully activated, more than 800 pharmacies will have covert 19 vaccine available in Arizona. We currently have more than 200 vaccination sites on our website that have received vaccine and this includes 45 community health centers as well. So if you are eligible and you receive care at one of our community health centers You could check on our website to see if they have received vaccine. And again just another update on helping our Arizona hospitals. We have been recruiting nurses with a nursing staffing contract here in the state. That's been one of our most successful endeavors. We are very excited. The majority of the nurses are here. When they arrive. They will stay on site for eight weeks with an opportunity to extend that On gesso. As of last week. 348 nurses have started work. We anticipated almost 200 more arriving this week again that We don't necessarily count them until we've heard that they have Arrived in the state and are attending on boarding at their assigned hospital. But we continue to work with our staffing contract to get all of the nurses that we can here in. Arizona State health director Dr Cara Crist went with her press briefing on covert 19 vaccine rollout that coming from the state Health Department. Go

Driscolls Will Grow Strawberries Vertically, Year-Round

"Wonder I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Thursday October fifteenth. What's on your plate for lunch today a salad some fruit. Since, the pandemic began many of us are eating healthier or at least trying to and all those additional leafy Greens and Berries on your plate have to come from somewhere preferably somewhere that reduces long distance food miles and maybe improves the taste over those deadly dull hothouse tomatoes. Our Appetite for fresh produce is fueling big growth in hot new industry vertical farming. On Monday, Driscoll's America's biggest strawberry provider said, it will start growing some of it strawberries in an indoor vertical farm that farm is run by San. Francisco AG Tech. Company. Plenty. Unlimited. Driscoll's new huge greenhouse will be in Laramie Wyoming hardly the nation's strawberry capital anticipating consumers possible objections driscoll says strawberries grown vertically without dirt or fresh air or just as tasty. Perhaps tastier than those grown on its California farms founded in twenty fourteen plenty unlimited began growing mountains of leafy Greens in a San Francisco vertical greenhouse last year. It now supplies leafy Greens to hundreds of Safeway, and Albertson's grocery stores in California. If you were to walk into its High Tech Greenhouse, you'd look up and up and up at endless walls of Kale a regular lettuce in Missoula. Mix. The company is green in more ways than one. They say, they use no GMO's and no pesticides because they don't spray for bugs plenty makes the startling claim that you don't even need to wash their produce and like other vertical farms plenty claims to use a tiny fraction of and water compared to traditional farming about one percent of land in less than five percent of water. Most vertical farms launched with Greens which grow well hydroponically and aeroponics not to mention they take less space than say tomatoes and strawberries. Moreover, local Greens are popular. They're also delicate which makes them great candidates for one of the purported benefits offered by tech indoor farms. That is if you can use controlled indoor conditions including led lights, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and recycled water to grow food on a large scale, you can put these greenhouses anywhere whether it be damned, and if you can grow strawberries in frozen Laramie Wyoming year round, you can shrink food miles the average. Plate of food travels fifteen hundred miles before it winds up on our table shrinking those food miles is good for the environment. It's also good for most produce great for grains. But now that vertical Greens have been proven, it's time to expand into other fruits and vegetables which brings us back to driscoll's the strawberry giant. It supplies a third of all strawberries in America and it's making a big investment in plenty. The Financial Times reports that high profile deal is only one of a flurry of investments signaling the news that high tech indoor farming is here to stay. Recently revel Greens. Minnesota startup raised almost seventy million dollars growing. It's total investment to two hundred million dollars using rainwater and snow. Melt. Company grows lettuce in mammoth greenhouses in California Texas and of course, it home in Minnesota with its new money rebel Greens plans to expand its Texas footprint according to the Star Tribune newspaper.

At King Station in Seattle, remember that your the coffee shop, we always late to the train station, but one of US runs and gets coffee, and sometimes we and then we're all freaked out and they're like, oh, it's okay that coffee? Shop. Had this yogurt and it was lemon curd. Oh I. had it. I remember I had it with you and then I was like. This is like four years ago. Then I. found out. They sold it at the whole foods in Portland when I was working there and I was like, Oh, fuck, I gotta eat all of this. They just started selling at the whole foods in West Hollywood and I. Almost started crying Cilicia says, best effort. It's a Greek style yogurt. It's authentically Greek. It's doesn't have added sugar or anything, and they have lemon curd. I bought Marion, Berry I bought one just straight up. The plane. Sometimes Greek yogurt to me can be so bitter and like Tart. This is smooth. It smooth dances right on your teeth. Those. So a yogurt that they've been selling for a long time and other parts of the country, they just started selling here. That's a win and then. My my pal, who's the cashier? WHO's? Eighty, years old with the. Heavy Russian accent who truly doesn't give a fuck. That's it. Did you WANNA rate Albertson's? A out of ten cotton candy grapes. How much you recommend it. The prices weren't grace. The store brands are good. The bakery looked terrific. The hot wheels deal could not be bee's and the word of the day. You can go in that store at nationwide and get free I'm going to give it seven cotton candy grapes out of town. Whole Foods has. Armageddon Vibes. It has the worst people in. Los. Angeles, they only had my yogurt that I needed, and there's only one person who works there that I like to talk to. So I'M GONNA give one cotton candy grapes out of ten. Wow, really would every time I park there win Berina stressful when Marino when I drove marina past whole foods on the way to the airport and she goes I'm glad I never have to go in that place again, it is very stressful giants. Okay. So we asked people on instagram. To Send in their queries about groceries and the response was overwhelming overwhelming. we're going to do this every week so just. Go on the throwing. Shade instagram and. Your all your questions have anyone do three. Yes. Sure. Okay. At. Bluetooth Johnson wants to know, is it rude to grocery shop with headphones in? That is an excellent question. I. Ask It is Oh really and I grocery stop shop by myself. And I always get self conscious about it because it's so frustrating to be in those aisles anyway that anyone on their phone or on their headphones I. Think it's obnoxious unless you are going high in the mid night hours or at the break of dawn. With no one is there. If you're doing what if you're doing like a, you're not doing it like I gotta get definitely whatever you're doing a like. Oh i. just get to hang out the grocery store for an hour. That would be great if you can pull into the parking lot and park immediately in the front row where your headphones, if you can't park in the first three rows, do not wear your headphones. That's a great tip. Yeah. I think. Now, let me say one good thing about the whole foods West Hollywood. Always playing eighty jams eighties jams. Yeah, and sometimes I'm dancing sometimes. I'm just straight up dancing to prints in Spaghetti. I'll looking for spaghetti for a long time ago. They only have Lithuanian Capellini but. I you can't beat that.

"Get paid so much money. Anyway Ashley Mick Jagger Jerry, Hall divorce. She only got like two million dollars. Yeah. It's exactly that except if Mick Jagger was only getting two million dollars. That's right. So. I used to date my first liberal boyfriend. In Austin, I was living in Houston. I was dating someone Austin. That's what Houston was like back in the day you had to go to. Austin. If you wanted somebody cool and you drove three hours to have a relationship, sure. My ex-boyfriend used to work has been working for a whole foods for a long time and. He worked his way up from a from a boy. Know what they're called, de? They used to I mean. But back when I was growing up. We went well was right after I caused the depression. So like nineteen, thirty one. We, call them. Bag Boys. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Bag Person I, guess swigging culture bag, Bagger bagger. Yes. Bagger. He. He has a very. Complicated relationship with the place because it's rewarded him handsomely for staying on as long, and then they do. That's that's a good thing about whole foods you definitely like you can go from bag boy to working at the head of the grocery, the frozen foods department. Great. You can do that. Okay. It's hard to describe exactly why this whole foods in particular is a microcosm of everything. That's wrong with whole foods. The West Hollywood want I think it's because it is so over. Worked and. Honestly the people who work there, they have to deal with the affluent crazy detritus of Los. Angeles? I've seen fights in that parking lot. I have seen. I've been yelled at for not returning my car all the way to the. Woman Doing Yoga, and they're once I can't, and I've noticed this new thing which I don't understand. Beer behind somebody entering the store, and they just stop in the doorway. Yeah. That's happened to me almost every time I've gone to. Like you to keep walking. Yeah. To get inside I. Think they're just so overwhelmed but underwhelmed. So they I have pictures, I will show you of how they have one entire I'll where you can't even get your card into it and the carts are small, which isn't actually very good. If you're someone like me, who now suddenly has an entire family and needs to get more than a single person amount of food, I can't I have to go to whole foods all the time right. I have to fill that tiny card. Please please change all your BIOS to that. Please make that your next book I have to go to the store all you pulling your hair Kathy style, I go to whole foods all the time. They are out of every day. Okay. My favorite popcorn to eat when I'm at the store late and I haven't had dinner Shikha White Cheddar. Yeah. They never fucking have it. They never. They have every other kind, but they never have it and I, don't get it because ever the grocery store I go to that's the. WHO's playing popcorn? Doing plane, pop, Popcorn I. do that's already made. No, I do or Adam Bacher I. Pour it It says on the label, how much olive oil you can push or coconut oil. So. I do it that way I just put the colonel's in pot right. Olive oil in short. You have to be a straight up psychopath to just buy a bag of plane popcorn that's already popped. I. Kettle corn I get. Why don't why Wyoming to some flavor? If you pop popcorn, that's like it's like Bein air. I disagree. I. Like playing. Yeah. But you don't buy it pre popped. You just said that you're right. I. I'm specifically saying plane also had skinny pop plane and loved it. It's good. I see I've had skinny pop I. Don't I don't think anybody holds a candle to boom Shaka pop i. don't know what it is. All right. Maybe they have a person underneath the I'll just pop it in putting a right in the bag I know. They didn't have the Spaghetti I like I had to buy whole foods, Spaghetti which I hate doing because the one I buy in a paper bag and the one that whole food sales is in a plastic bag. So I've gotta I've gotTa do plastic waste with that way. What what Spaghetti's coming in bags, the all the all the spaghetti comes in plastic bags. Why? Have, you had spaghetti I, guess. They always like human boxes. Well, the bad ones do and then I guess the whole foods Kopech the three, sixty, five, all come in bags, and in the one I by has a plastic window, which isn't great. But the rest of the bag pipes spaghetti comes box. Deco or whatever. That one is. What I'm actually not allowed to buy more because my husband says this shit to check Oh. Yeah. Whatever you. To CRAPPO. Look. It's a shit show in there. I. Don't like going in there. They don't have anything I need the Karcher to small. People stop in the door. It's truly. We'll make you hate Los Angeles. And there's all these products that whole foods now, that are puns. Here's one. It's a granola called hamp yeah. Cool. Milk. Damian. How is Hem? Still thing? I. Don't know how Kale still a thing. I get a little bit but had healthy well, and it's like edible, but but hemp is sort of like, no, we've evolved beyond that. Look at this picture of my car. Okay, I can't get it in the Aisle Yeah your card is stuck. With what is in their olive oil? Yeah. Well, that's a tragedy. I'll put this online. Oh, also, the only molten salt they have is smoked. All insolvency. So They did have spaghetti in a bag, and then you have spaghetti in a bag and they didn't have. Visited Gird Mauldin. What did you say? Mauldin ceased they only have smoke downplaying what? You'd never go to Albertsons, you will be. disappointed. Listen. Here's the thing. My husband is Italian. You turned me into a fucking asshole that doesn't mean. I. The whole foods is supposed to be boozy. Right back to it, you're right around I can't do that here. I, have nowhere in La to booze yet, I have to go to Italy which I'm not gonNA fuck do 'cause. Easily to I. Spent Three, hundred, seventy, five dollars. Three hundred and seventy-five God damn dollars eighty on Funky what Pasta risotto? Yeah. I did I saw Mama Mia to I spent eighty dollars on both candidates. Z. It's. Honestly. If you look at the translation between those two, it's the same amount. Exactly. My point is, is that all I wanted was a good pasta. I wanted simple things a good pasta, olive oil, which they had my favorite which I think you use a California? Yeah. It's the best all also at traderjoes. If he used the cow, make sure to get the California pressed because when they come from Italy or Greece, a Lotta Times, it's not it. So might not be all oil. But if it comes from California, you know it's olives speaking of olive oil if you. Brian touched on just now, and if you talked in Italian is a contentious subject because of that, there's a, there's a weird. Mafia underbelly of people. Yes. Doing fake all not fake was.

"They should be. To sweeten this deal, I wanna read one of the most fabulous facebook things I've ever read I can't wait. So they have four, hundred, ninety, five, thousand likes on Facebook, but really only about five commenters. Comment on their posts regularly, it seemed like okay. So. Here's my favorite one. Well I forgot my glasses today. At the store. I needed a produce worker not around. So I went to the Deli and asked if they could page one, I've never bought mangoes. I just wanted help picking them out. The lady didn't speak English very well, but she kept pointing to the produce department. I thought she was pointing for a service called Button and produce I. Finally told her look I forgot my glasses. I'm practically blind without them. She walked out, grabbed me by the hand, walked me to the mangoes and picked them out for me and told me the colors to look out for then she looked at my husband and said, make that man bag them for you. I laughed and smiled sodas she. She was so sweet and helpful. Your employees have always been extremely awesome. Even back when I was a kid twenty, five years ago. So wishes look. Of? No Hell, I don't now. Why is she? Why? First of all, if you're if you can't see that well and you forgot your glasses, a b. couldn't your husband picked out the mangoes. Did you have to go to the Deli to get someone to help you but. They did and then the negative review I thought of our says, that was my favorite was. The only thing I like about this. Albert. The best watermelon bowls. In the state of Texas. But they're checkers don't know how to count back change to you. It's a lost art these days. Disagree. Most. Of the time checkers just plunk the money in your hand and that's it. Well, that's what this Albertson's dead. This is what? I. Want to say what everyone knows that I'm obsessed with this thing. If you give someone at ten and they give you the chase back and they say five is ten, earn ten twenty, that is a lost art. You don't see that much. So I guess Albertson's could improve upon that. But that's all people are really complaining about I I for hustled out of ten dollars at a discount tool store that my dad made me go to Santa Fe because I handed him a twenty and he thought I handed him a ten. It's also important to put what I used to do when I worked cash register at the gap I would always put the money on the top. I would never put it away. The top, and then you count the money out, give it back and then they're like, but I gave you twenty and you still here, my final view of Albertsons is this. I was impressed. I think it's a little overpriced. The bakery is delicious. The Lube could be better. The word of the day is worth it if you are in the neighborhood I'd. Just, go on facebook. See with the of the day is go grab it, try seven dead. So trying to stake for free and the people there could not have been lovelier. So that's Albert's. That's good because I feel as in. Los. Angeles California. Why was looking up what their salaries are there and they don't get paid enough to be that. Nice. Shirt. Really. Truly. Grocery, store whole foods too, which is where I went. Okay Foods West. Hollywood. Is We all know I'm in a constant love hate relationship with this place. Whole foods is on Santa. Monica Boulevard. Good. fucking luck parking there. It's impossible. They are so in denial about how many people come to that store, but they tried to to make you park in that adjacent lot that lots gone. You're kidding that like sold. There's nowhere to fucking park. Okay. Good luck. Now, last night I went at eight, forty five, which is apparently the magic hour because that's what people are doing like normal things like seeing their friends or having dinner. Well, it's the only time. You can get a parking spot at whole foods. The it was still pretty crowded. And? And I had. A very short list I needed to get Spaghetti Olive. Oil. Butter. and. Olive oil butter, that is not well, it's a vegan butter. And into. So fucking good and it tastes like butter. It's called well, they didn't have rock. Fabio. Yeah. It's his butter. I can't believe it's not better. Yeah. So Margarine, but this is called Mioko Ze M. Y. Okay S, but they didn't have it because. Ever since Amazon took over, they don't have shit anyway. Let me tell you about a little bit of a whole foods before I rip. It rips into it. And by the way, it is specifically this one because I go to whole foods in Texas is if God. Damn. Dream. Breakfast Burrito I. Have I. Have a big car last. Why nobody live performances? Sure. Glass of wine. Street at bars, Aono and the whole foods in San Santa Fe is fantastic. They have amazing cheeses. They have all my favorite cheeses and there's people there's seventy year old men and women with braids in their hair feathers listening to fleetwood MAC getting tanked. Great. Not the West Hollywood whole foods so. If you don't know about whole foods, it was started by John. mackey, a bunch of other people who are millionaires but don't sell out talk. He does. You know he only made eight million dollars from the Kitty Yeah I. Don't I don't know if that's because he got, he kept a majority or my a lot of minority stock or something, but he only got alien dollars. The founder of whole foods only made eight. He must.

"I saw that they had acquaintances like one fucking using that and I did it cost to do it. I mean, there is a premium that you pay is attempt ten, ten percents, I think I think it was five percent. Okay. I think it's five percent. So to me, it's worth it. They also red box. Well. Who Cares I mean? Well, that's not fair I. Agree my my Grandpa can't get streaming. He's gotTa do the shirt? I walked in better now is playing by post. Post, Malone. So that was okay. I like that. Song. This is what I will say about their carts, the perfect size. They agree with you shocked by my experience at Albertson's and how good it was I don't know what I was expecting. I guess I was just expecting like. Normal Grocery store chain no charm. and. That was all true. But the upper shelf on the cart was enormous. The wheels were very thick and very sturdy. As. I was saying they're very famous for the rotisserie chickens. There were none there I have pictures of it. I'll put it online to history chicken from completely empty. All the prices were there. So then I asked about it and get this, they put them at seven thirty am three PM and five thirty PM. So I went at nine, am there were so. that. Early. Out. You ask how many they an slot I didn't I should've? I should've, I, should've asked. Their bakery was gorgeous Davis filled I took pictures of it. It was filled with the most delicious looking donuts. I've ever seen. They had a non parole cake that look delicious. They even have I stunned. Aaron. They even had a cake that was covered on top of plane M. and M.'s and the border was kit Kat sticks. That is diabetic I. Know It is full diabetic, but it looked absolutely delicious. How big was it? Small. Three people. Yeah. You know for if you're in a three, oh, yeah. We're all my troubles lead seventeen kit kat bars. That's right. the sappers incredible that I don't know that seems the hardware was. But like. What's the theme for Kit Kat? GimMe a break. Break break me off Weiss of that. Kit Kat K.. Give you ever? Yeah. Exactly. So you don't break it off, you slice it off. Incredibly. Attentive staff. This is what I will say about Albertson's and people give me shit for shopping. Gilson's people give me for shopping this considered a high end gravy. Yeah. Guess what the two things I buy a single man. Most like I am not cooking as much as I used I'm not making the now buying chickens. I'm not making the chickens do understand what I'm saying I totally. It's very clear. So my grocery rounds usually involve a stop on vodka. And a stop on the coffee, I'll always the coffee was five dollars more expensive brains I buy. At. Albertson was against. Now, I would like to know if there is a thing, is our APP where you can literally take a picture of the skew and find out what grocery store retail me not sort of has that, but it's not always accurate because I tried. The vodka was more expensive by TITA. Yes Then, then Gilson's and five dollars more expensive was the coffee. They don't have a rewards program or at least this doesn't it's all built in, but I will say some of the things that I got on sale were pretty good. For instance, they hot on sale ten for ten dollars off we all are. Sorry. The the toy thing for children. Yeah. They. I seen a long time. I got a Nissan. They had them in. They had them in really the strangest brands. Nissan, Honda? Nissan Ultima. What Children Hallway? Think their parents, cars, cooler I duNNo. Now. I want to get to Oh I also want to get to get there they have their new brand of. Sparkling. Water that they just came out with an opening albertsons brand. So we don't know who kopecks, it's called. So lay. which to be is you know 'cause Lacroix's also French. So. This is so les which means son correct. Correct this cherry lime flavor, and this is what I have to tell you. If you like the Cherry Lime version of what happens at sonic that drank terry lie made. Yeah. This is what you want. I'm not kidding you how much sugar is in Zero Lacroix, but there's nothing in it wanted aspartame just water. No, it's carbonated water and natural flavors. It's just like it's better than the cry, and this is natural flavors in mean, but I mean, you could say all of them though I mean like bubbly or any of them. They all say the same thing, carbonated water natural flavors. So who knows what it means? Okay. What I'm getting to is the big reveal. The board of the day, the board of the day at Albertsons was Lacroix. Excuse me Vita Coco, sparkling water that was the word of the day. They do not advertise. There is a word of the day. In other words. There are not promotions anywhere in the store that would guide you to find this. Vita Coco. is in an I'll at Albertson's called new age waters. Believe it. And we're, regular walk. Dot in that, IRA this was enhanced drinks and new age waters, enhance drinks, and what does that mean? Like, yes, gatorade. Supplemental Dreams that many of that shit that they can't just have a water I'll to Vita Coco. Sparkling is not where the regular VITA COCO is. It's completely different section. The trick them I, don't know, but I finally found the Vita Coco sparkling I went up to the counter. So at this point, I, had my APEC of Soleil. My Nissan hot wheel. VITA COCO sparkling water. I went up to the cashier and I said the word of the day is Vita, Coco sparkling water, and she said that you're getting a Vita Coco sparkling water for free and she held up a sign that said word of the day, and she let me take a picture with it. What is that? One eight two did this? No, she didn't. I asked if I could take the picture she I didn't take a picture of, as I was just GonNa, take a picture of that card. You could literally go to Albertsons facebook page every Goddamn Day and walk in and get something free, and what's the verdict on? Are you having an it yet? All right. Well, let's say look I doubt. It's good. Stuff like this, we'll say drink the whole day. This similar thing. Yeah. It's disgusting. I would never recommend well, that's so what they do is they get with their their people. Right? They go with their vendors. What shitty thing do you an offload? What mistake have you made, Yup? and. Here's what I want to say finally. So this is what I would think I for me. This albertsons is an a plus I would I would recommend it the thing where they faltered I thought they tried to make a local in every aisle was like Griffith Park Boulevard Echo, Park. Boulevard just trying to make it very east side friendly where they altered for me and this is a test for every pharmacy go into everywhere. The LGBT test and for me, the gay man test, what kind of Lubes are you looping with? They only had astro glide and for me I? I'm sorry. I don't like either grades totally a phobic that every brand of Trojan, but only Astra for Lube, so doesn't pass that test, but this was my favorite. Is it a gun AMMO? Gun Oil. Swiss navy, those are the ones that. Those are good. Yeah. And like my favorite Lube Bud Pussy water is that real? They should be. To sweeten this deal, I wanna read one of the most fabulous facebook things I've ever read I can't wait. So they have four, hundred, ninety, five, thousand likes on Facebook,.

"I was a practicing psychotherapist helping others to manifest their true selves. So they could lay full happy lives, but it took a chiropractor to help me realize mine was forty three, my chiropractor. Figured out. I. Had SEAL EAC disease. After, cutting out. All Gluten, I was happier more energetic and I've ever felt I began baking gluten free goody. So I'd never feel deprives But if they didn't taste indulgence that was the deal breaker. So I hit the kitchen to begin baking crackers for myself at first piece Levin crunched. Mary. On the back of God crackers. Welcome to Grocery E. WE did everyone here. Internet's only podcast dedicated to the celebration of the store. We buy food in I'm Bryan, Safi. Did you have a nickname for yourself for a grocery? I grew well, grocery store. Joe's already taken. I would love suggestions on what my grocery dictum homosexual. No, it has to be something else. Napoli Bryce, hoppy, who knows? Gibson, the bag lady, that's it. That's it. We are covering everything groceries related from the history of the store, the social media presence of the store and our experience at specific locations. How were the carts? Were the checkers really everything. Can you play checkers? Everything grows related. So this week. Aaron, I went to Albert sentence which one. In Los Villas almost feeless and ambrose. Ambrose. Yeah. I always think it's Interesting facts about Albert since it was founded by Joe Albertson onto lights. On July twenty nine hundred, thirty, nine in Boise. Idaho. Joy Twenty. First happens to be my brother's birthday and add in the Idaho. Statesman touted this Joe, Albertson's first store as Idaho's largest and finest food store. It was filled with perks that at the time like gift with purchase. Apparently, they had free parking, which was a huge deal I guess you have to pay for parking. Yeah, but it was a big perk. They were like Oh. My God. You can park it this Albertson's how for free. But only for a grocery store was this back in the day when they were still delivering nine, hundred, thirty, nine, man yeah. Hi, Milkman, that original store by the way no longer exists. They tore down and put up a statue remembrance of it, but then put up a brand new albertsons, which to me is crazy. They should've kept the. That I really don't like. Festus Albertsons is the second largest supermarket chain in the country after Kroger, Albertsons merged with Safeway which I never knew. So Albert all Safeway stores are also albertsons stores, which means like all Vaughn stories are also Albertsons and Safeway stores. So those three are who's the umbrella album albertson's and get the fuck this. In? Two Thousand and two Albertsons changed from Albert, sense to elaborate sense, and by that I mean they took out the apostrophe. And nobody knows why? That because of paperwork, maybe it was too expensive to put the sign up with the apostrophe. Albert Activism Sheep Shit. Our was also the very first supermarket to introduce the idea of a food and drug store in the same market. They were the first ones to collate that idea. They also have owned several other labels, private label brands. which included jewel Osco village market masters, choice, and my favorite Janet Leahy. which is a Sara Lee Knockoff, j. e. t. l. e., and guess who was named after. One of the Albertson's the actress, the executive vice presidents daughter's name at the time I can't. Yeah. There's so. There's so much ego in this store by the way, did you in college I worked in the Marketing Department for a company that Kopatch food for them for hours and yeah. So we so they used to sell egg rolls to Albertsons Kroger, and so you know there's companies out there everywhere that just make egg rolls or like. Dough. Or whatever, and then they just Co. so the grocery store makes none of that. Shit. Everyone knows that right? They slap a label on it. Albertsons is very famous for the rotisserie chickens, people online, love them and I'm GonNa, get into that in a second of my experience with them I will say this, they have a very strong facebook presence, one, hundred and ninety thousand likes. Twenty nine thousand twitter followers. Fourteen thousand instagram followers. And I'll tell you why on instagram and twitter all they're doing is being like happy fourth of July, and it's a picture of a hotdog. Whoever's running social media accounts not doing a great job at their facebook page is great, and this is where I found out about something key. They have an albertsons stores across the country something called the word of the day. Whatever it's not a word, it's a products. So the word of the day is a product of the day. So today the day that I went to Albertsons the day recorded. The word of the day was vita. Coco sparkling water. That was the word of the day forwards, which means exactly. If you say the board of the day to them at checkout, you get it for free. I'll explain how that went down for me in a second. Yesterday pop chips was of the word, the word of the day. A lot of people complain that sometimes there, Albertson's. Cashiers are clueless about the word of the day on facebook. So I obviously wanted to try it out. i. went to the Albertsons. Feel is now this Albertson's has the Bank of Pharmacy Bakery Adelie and a coin star, which to me is a real game changer because I feel like hardly any groceries coin. Okay. Can I tell you something about coin story I haven't looking for a coin makes Albertson's I used. Used to have a bag of pennies I, house same I, use it I, use it when I looked it up online..

WEGMANS is was a big New York one when I went to school. People Love Waybill fucking Love Wagmans Bureau. WAKEMAN's rush. I here in in Brooklyn actually when I was. Living there for this recent actual, it was kind of close. Fire is a giant white to. Really big yeah. People lose their minds for WAGMANS. It's just. There's a regional allegiance to Wegmans that I don't understand. Well I will say not to not to a side of the snowman, but they do have a large hot bar that might be. The one. It's definitely. On. This I to be honest wanted to use the restroom. Why didn't really shop here, but? yeah, that was they seem to have Wiegmann seems to have a lot of like the soldiers. I'd check out this hot bar they are they are. They are not and I think that they make like good food. Good subs and sandwiches and like the Deli and everything like that is the place you're going to like Wax Roach brothers, the other one in Quincy and then Cam Man Market Roach, brothers, they are brothers now. Like Roa C. H.. No, it's not. Be Funny. But it sounds like it sounds like a cockroach is not the sort of thing you want associated with food service. No, it's. Right, it's bad.

Ralph's across a trader Joe's at third and Laura. Area Wow, but now I live in downtown. LA, so there's a whole foods kind of close by so that's. TWAS. That's that's. You you mentioned thing here that we kinda touched on of. When you trader Joe's and this is an issue. I mean this takes points away from it. It's a combo you gotta do. You gotTa Combo up with like a real supermarket. I always think, but you can't necessarily get every single thing. You need from me a trader. Joe's more specialty store. Yeah, I think there was a time. I. Don't Drink Diet Soda Anymore, but died Sotos line. The could get so big. You can get sold. Like your fake, not regular sodas. Yeah? That's that was the problem. Is I always felt like I? Needed a few more things, and that was nice easy. Way. Back when you're on the Diet, Soda Horse What Were Your Go-to Sodas? That adapt. I'll take great one. That's a good one. That's a big Texas drink. Dr Pepper Indict Yeah I just picked it up there. It was like. It was I drink a lot of. Is Amazing. That! Is it's? It's really got a great. It tastes like diet drink, but it's just like a very satisfying flavor. I can still very distinctly I used to be a guy I'd go through four cans of that day when I was on Diet Sodas. and. Then Diet Coke Yeah, yeah, and I just thought of it is like. A harmless treat until I guess it's not. So. I kind of feel like the. You can't trick your body like every time there is something that's got like a like. Oh, it tastes like real fat, or it tastes like real sugar, but it some chemical. There's always some some medium term or long term. Health effects from that. I also just feel like. Even when a switch from full sugar so to Diet, Soda I feel like my weight remained the same for us rise. I think there's people that argue that full sugar is better while at the one with actual cane sugar, and so at this point surface. You'RE GONNA drink anything dream because from Mexico. Right. Well Yeah, all that Deitz up because district, my raters. Like, I think I ate an entire bag like rushmere college. I just had runs for like. Two something. This, this chips like.

Like those that was the side effects were so severe that it was I. Guess just like the effects of it were so severe that they had to put a warning label on the later, and the warning label was like it can cause i. think they had the verbiage was anal leakage.

Mitch I've been going through those chicken like we. We reviewed COSCO last week with our Buddy Griffin. Newman, and I got A. A you know. Everything there is in bulk and a got a I bought. Some chicken bakes from there, but it's like a pack of like sixteen or something absurd, and so I've been going through chicken banks I've had my second to last chicken bake, but I've been having them like I've just been having him like every day for lunch just to try to not waste them. I've I've almost I think this next one will be sick of them, but I've had so many chicken bakes, and weirdly to what what Roger was saying about the toaster oven the chicken bake. I mentioned this on the on the previous episode. They say to microwave and it works okay, but it does have what seems like. It should be crispier more Jimmy Chunga type crust that I wonder if it would benefit from the oven or the toaster oven. Maybe I'll try that. Try and experiment tomorrow's final chicken bake. Wow, nick! Yeah, that's a double. That's a patriotic exclusive episode. It's GonNa putting a chicken, bacon and oven. And watching it. Chicken bakes every. You've been having them every day I've been having I mean not quite every day, but I've been having a lot. I've been just trying to get through them. I don't WanNa throw them away. We knew grocery store month was a bad idea going in. Yeah, which we were right about. Yeah, I told you that. I knew it was bad, but we had to do it. Right we gotTA DO STUFF? You know what I mean, but yeah I know. Track the times we're living in sort of. Contemporary and you know what I say this you so about this hot bar neck. And I don't even think it's been an issue. I like like we're. Have we really missed a hot barred whole foods? That's it. Well. I mean I I would I would separate hot bar from serving hot food and serve repaired food. That was my whole. Frustration with the your insistence on the inclusion of trader Joe's which ended up being fine because we're doing, we're handling a different light, but also the hot foods we still have. You can still get hot foods or basically every place you go to still yes, you can, but I'm just saying like the Bar I for me I. You, need a single. Divided a little island. You need the island, not even a hot bar, just like hot food like that. They sell like they have like a Deli counter where you can buy stuff and trader, Joe's does not have that. We don't to rehash this argument, but I'm just saying. I know I know you're trader Joe's but I'm saying but whole foods. Has that and you know you can get? You can get prepared food to go. Cosco has that and certainly this week's chain Albertson Albertson's rather Albertson not just Albertson. It was originally Albertson, and then they they launched more stores Albertsons, plural, no apostrophe their albertson's. EXCHAN- also has hot food and I think they're hot food and their Deli counter is pretty good. We'll get into that one second barrage. I wanted to ask about it on the grocery store topic as as someone who grew up in Texas. What is what are your Texas specific grocery stores? The stores that make you think a home? I think number one is Kroger's Kroger's. That was the most common chain, and then they also Randall's which they? But Kroger's. Albertsons owns Randall's apparently. Oh, albertsons, albertsons, Randall's now. Kroger owned in the past. Okay, but crow but Albertsons. Albertsons like Oh. Yeah, there's a couple in La. But I grew up. We didn't go there that often. Downtown Colon Tom. Thumb's none of that seat slow Tom Thumb bomb. I don't know in jewel OSCO briefly, which is in western chain briefly. At a couple stores food lion was there. One that I think there's no way you guys. A hypermarket was labor market, yeah. It's on name. It was basically. Walmart giant size. Food or whatever? The main one was kroger I mean they dominated. That's mark was at hypermarket. was there was there trance music playing when you went in? Finnick probably probably countries I guess. It does sound hypermarket sounds like something would be like Pulver, hoven movie. Yeah I, mean shops in twenty thirty and I was pretty young and I liked the Millennium Falcon, and so I was like hypermarkets Zingo. Futures. This was. I think it. Got Bought by seems seems out. That's another big one. Good funny names down there also. Is as far as the big ones. Kroger has a pretty funny name sounds like a fraud. Maybe just because I'm thinking of kermit sounds frog issues.

Ordering online groceries has gotten easier

"I looked? At Amazon, fresh whole foods cart posts. Posts, mates, target and Walmart. Let me fill you in Amazon fresh the promises same-day delivery when you visit the website as long as you were prime member, which caused one hundred nineteen dollars a year, and you order a minimum amount, usually thirty five or forty dollars when I made by order on Tuesday, morning I was promised a delivery by one thirty, and then when I tried later on again they're all gone. Gone, but they had free delivery on Wednesday and Thursday that made me happy. Whole Foods, which is also owned by Amazon their promises free two hour delivery again with prime membership I ordered it five minutes to two, and they put a four ninety nine delivery attached to it to have the food derived by four or free. If I could wait till six, which of course I could fill out better than waiting a week. Week, which is what it took me when I was trying to do it locally from some of the markets around La target tacked ten dollar delivery fee onto a forty dollar order unless I paid him one hundred bucks for the shipped service, which is owned by target. Now they did agree to get the order over to me within two hours, which is great, but it didn't like that hundred dollars and furthermore folks. Target has a feature where they will meet you outside and put all the food into your trunk. The only problem is. If you order on your computer, you can't get that service. You have to do it on the APP, so order on the APP. Instant card instant is the biggest of all of them, and they do food delivery for a lot of local markets. But the results are different when I ordered from Ralph's, which is part of the Kroger chain? I was ordered a two hour window when I ordered from Vancouver, which is part of the Albertson's chain. There were many hours, so they said I could get it that evening. FONS wanted to charge me ten dollars. Ralph's did not so that's a little weird, and of course on top of those fees is a big tip. You WanNa. Give a tip for. For your instinct card shoppers, the person who is going up and down the aisles, getting your food for you and then driving into your house post mates is more active in online food delivery from restaurants, but they do the groceries as well and just this week. Uber said it wanted to buy post. Speights for two point six five billion dollars now when I when I tried ordering from on post, mates ordered a forty five to sixty minute delivery promise. In also a ten dollar fee finally, Walmart free delivery, no delivery charges, minimum purchase, but a two-day way. Okay But you know what two days is fine. as I said when I was trying this back in March and April I was looking at one week weights so two days one day. The bottom line is it's a lot better now than it was I. Still Way prefer the process of walk into the store and shopping I find shopping online for grocery items tough because I don't know what I want until I see it,

Produce Delivery Services Overwhelmed With New Customers

"Say How's that grocery delivery going for you sure. These days it may seem wise to avoid walking into a supermarket but the wide berth were giving. Kroger and Albertsons and company is causing problems for overburden grocery delivery services in many cities delivery slots from instant card in Amazon. Fresh are in higher demand than Toilet paper just yesterday. Amazon announced they would put on line grocery customers on a wait list. That's after they've hired one hundred thousand extra workers. Now they're planning to hire seventy five thousand more so of Amazon with its army of workers can't get your groceries to you on time. What's a shopper to do? Well many are trying to find a work around by buying produce and some groceries from online farm to kitchen vendors. But if you think you've found a solution to delays think again startups like Farm Bucks Hungry Harvest and imperfect foods are also under strain. They're scrambling to keep up with our sudden yen for everything from fresh spinach too ugly Avocados last month six year old New York based farm box direct saw orders doubling day over day baltimore-based hungry harvest had to halt new sign ups just so they could fulfill orders for existing customers. There's a wait list. Of course an imperfect food said on their blog last month that it was experiencing astonishing demand to be honest they called it unprecedented demand but does the word unprecedented being anything anymore. Like the big box grocers. These smaller produce sellers are also experiencing delays. But let's back up a bit in case you've never heard of these companies. Imperfect foods was the brainchild of college. Student Been Simon. Who has a freshman was shocked at the quantities of food? He saw other students throwing away at the college cafeteria. In Twenty fifteen partnered with a friend Ben Chesler to start imperfect foods with a mission to save millions of pounds of food from being wasted instead imperfect foods would sell what the two been called ugly produce that means offering tiny avocados scarred apples in twisted carrots that supermarkets spurn to shoppers. Who Understand as my mother used to say? They still taste the same planet conscious. Customers like imperfect foods message of attacking America's food waste problem and they also like spending about thirty percent less than they would at a supermarket by mid Twenty nineteen the company while not yet profitable had grown to two hundred thousand subscribers in twenty two cities but even its founders couldn't have foreseen how the corona virus cooking boom would affect the company for good and for ill one lesson that we're learning from this crisis. Is that anything that hits suddenly hits hard where your business has been forced to close or growth has exploded as was the case with imperfect foods in late. March a bunch of orders. They don't say how many were delayed and others cancelled. The company issued a Mayor Copa on its blog on March twenty second essentially saying. Hey No one expected this much growth. Along with implementing Cova nineteen precautions for staff and Shoppers. Imperfect foods began hiring more workers and they promised more transparent communication in the future last week. The company warned that inventory could be limited and delays of. Maybe a few days would continue but a small number of shoppers. Mainly brand new customers are receiving emails that their deliveries could be delayed into may as the company ramps up to handle the new volume like Imperfect Foods baltimore-based hungry harvest also sells produce. It's not winning any beauty contests Mizunami of demand force them to scale up warehouse delivery and supply chain operations especially getting produce from farms to their warehouses. Demand was so high. The company says that under normal circumstances it would have taken them six months to scale up that much but they did it in five days. They've already added a dozen new warehouse workers and drivers and as of late March. We're looking to hire at least another twenty five and that's just a handle existing customers because remember they're running weightless right other farms doorstep companies like misfits market and farm. Box direct are also being inundated. So what should you do if you're radishes of gone rogue or your Avocados of abandoned you? Unfortunately most of these companies customer care operations are also underwater imperfect foods asks customers to not even try contacting customer service unless an order is more than forty eight hours late. But there are other alternatives. You could sign up for a local community supported agriculture service or CSI typically CSA's charge up front for shares of a season of produce. The farm sends boxes it later. Intervals the downside. Will you don't have much control over? What's in those boxes the upside? You're supporting local farmers or you could actually consider going to the grocery store with a mask on of course at least one. Publication is accusing some of US have delivery time hoarding Oxford moral philosopher. Jeff McMahon told Fast Company. If you're young and healthy using delivery service could be well selfish go shopping and Lee. Those scarce delivery times for the elderly people with disabilities and others at high risk. And maybe that will ease the burden on everyone from Amazon to imperfect foods until all of this blows over after that well. It's a good bet that farm to kitchen box businesses will be even bigger and

The Coronavirus Pandemic Hurts Some Industries, Benefits Others

"Many industries are furloughing or firing workers. But some are hiring. Npr's Alina Seljuk has the story. Despite all the shutdowns and lockdowns Americans still need food and medicine and that means some companies are actually hiring at least temporarily supermarkets like Kroger and Albertsons Pharmacies Lake CVs and walgreens and retail giants like Amazon and Walmart. Not only are we not laying off? People were actually position. We're going to be hiring additional one hundred fifty thousand new associates. That's executive Dan Bartlett last week announcing a major hiring push promising to get some people into new jobs in a matter of hours. Amazon has a similar plan to hire one hundred thousand new delivery and warehouse workers in the next few weeks to keep up with a big spike in online shopping papa. John's and domino's are hiring thousands of cooks managers drivers same at meal. Kit companies like Blue Apron and grocery delivery platforms like shipped and INSTA- cart with it wants to sign on up to three hundred thousand delivery GIG workers more than doubling its contract workforce or in transportation logistics for example. Hiring is actually up seven percent a month over month from March thirteenth. Daniel Joe is a senior economist at the jobs and recruiting website glass door. He says those transportation numbers account for new hires at warehouses of all kinds including retail and new jobs are being posted by local governments and healthcare organizations basically call center workers or front desk associates. These are folks who are helping to field questions. Some of the companies that are adding new jobs including Amazon. Instant card have faced criticism from their current workers who want protective gear hazard pay and broader access to paid sick leave still. These new jobs are an option for many workers who find themselves suddenly unemployed because of Corona virus and the companies that are hiring specifically targeting. Them you can imagine not. There's an awful lot of people who have lost their normal livelihoods and are desperate to generate some income to support their family. Ruth Milkman is a professor of sociology and Labour Studies at the City University of New York. The whole point of paid sick leave is to not force workers to have to choose between their livelihood and their house or the health of their kids. But these workers are going to be put in that position. She says the jobs that are growing fast. Many of them are our leave with limited benefits and pay and of course they're risky because they involve interacting with other people while most of the country is asked to stay at home and isolate a reminder that in times of crisis some of the lowest paid jobs become essential

"Today. We're GONNA be talking sheriff about photography. So let's get into it Sherry. Welcome to our show. It's so great having Jose here so you have grown up around cameras now as a little kid all my life cameras aimed at you most again. Your Dad was Trenton Center. He was big deal. Back in the fifties sixties seventies. He broke down a lot of walls. Again everybody's familiar with his music and his acting and everything else. So you're smiling laughing about so. I was very hyperactive. Attention deficit as a child. I still lamb a little curtail with certain things now making native American blood you know wearing a bright orange camp right now you WanNa talk about it. Yeah Orange there you go. There's fast on. Go ahead I'm sorry. My Grandmother gave me my first Brownie camera. Now that's how far back I with the fan flash that you put the light bulb shit so I had that one. I was four years old. How many megapixel was and you would get this little tiny roll of film that you would put inside that Yummy and That was my first foray into being behind the camera and then instamatic semantic when I was I think I had a funny little polaroid camera that we had them all And my first legitimate camera was a pentax when I was eleven years old. Okay I was in boarding school by Matic or h three the it was. You know I can't remember I just. It was a thirty five millimeter Pentax Camera. That was dad's I know. Dad had a SPA top. Any passed it down to me so my entire high school was spent in the dark room. I smell like smoke. That was really attractive. Smell coming out of the yellow fingernails sitting in the dark. You Know Rolling and Rolling Rolling Rolling and then you know praying that you could put it in the CAN. It would come out and it wasn't all crumpled and you know so. Yeah I spent a good part of my earlier years behind the camera. And then of course like you said being Harry's daughter you know when we when he was on tour somewhere and there's Paparazzi or people taking pictures of us all the time and then Harry took pictures of us all the time that we never saw and it was the biggest joke because he was he always got get over there. Get OVER THERE. Get over there. Stop Stop Standards There. Hundreds and hundreds of pictures that were taken by. Harry and we've never seen a single one single. And why do you think that's the case? He just too busy to Kinda know if he ever developed and I don't know if there was even filmed the camera I think he had these Lycos and he just you know he just kept shooting once in a while. We saw him because he would. When he was a touring he would have these The program with this and it was always the big color program that would come with new. Buy A ticket and there would be pictures of us you know in there and we go to dad. Shoot that picture around. The house was photography kind of a respected medium. Was it an art to be an art. He did have a darkroom which he never went into. He just had it in the back next his recording studio but he did use a recording studio. Did use the recording. But Yeah we always have been shutterbugs. I think the whole definitely me more so than I think my siblings but Harry was definitely behind the camera. He was into like us us a very like a like like like scandal. And what about the Paparazzi and stuff? Maybe it wasn't. I can't even say that it wasn't like it is now because Paparazzi but was it A pain in the bud. Was it something that you guys so I was so used to? You know because what happened is my hair Harry. In Marguerite. My mom was marguerite. She passed away a few years go but they divorced. When I was very young actually separated woman was pregnant with me so there was always that kind of people trying to take pictures of that that was going on but there was a little more of a sense of decency for lack of better words with authorizing I mean. Now it's like Oh goes the there were lines. That were not crossed back then. I mean chances and stuff like that and they they definitely probably got onto your skin right probably worse today and usually think it was more of a magazine would come in. Ebony magazine would come in and say you know. Can we shoot you at home or and you know there was a story that was behind it and maybe the attorneys would go yet. It's good idea. Let's let's push that you know. Yeah we've always been around cameras for yourself. It's often family. What kind of things interested you would sort of you know? In the days I was in boarding school in Massachusetts so I I've always been a fan of black and white. I never learned how to process color and of course slides for the first things. You sort of learned. I never learned how to process but I was always into the dynamic of black and white so with the snow in Massachusetts. There was always the lights and shadows and you can stream you know falling through the ice no save. The camera saved the camera. Shot landscapes mostly landscapes. And then I shot everything and then as I got older and could start a fording stuff. I actually stopped shooting for a while and then when Sam. I got married thirty five years ago. Sam gave me my first Yoeskamnoer. I had by then already onto Canon cameras. But you know hey a one and the that great but then Sam gave me my first Kammer after maybe not shooting for ten years and we went on our honeymoon to Italy and I just shot like crazy like bags and bags film was carrying at the time. Kodak made what was called recording fill in the recording. Four seventy five four and as soon as you develop it would turn into a corkscrew that you can never hold flat that I didn't know because by then I wasn't processing okay but Three hundred you could you. Could you could set the The whatever you wanted I mean you couldn't with any film but this was if you decided to shoot at or if you wanted to shoot one hundred thirty two hundred or sixty four hundred. Just remember what you shot that at and you'd process it like if I shot four hundred three sixty I process it at four hundred by shoot at three sixty and I mean the detail was. It's crazy it's like mega pixels eight thousand and I just fell in love with that and then when Kodak stopped making it because they said well you know nobody's buying it because it was twelve dollars a roll and I know buying it. No please keep making and then shortly after you know film just kind of went by the wayside and now it's coming back. Is it coming back to us? Sales were up twenty percent last year. So you now actually have to try and find a film camera. I still actually have a rebel. Okay okay isn't it rebel? Originally rebels were killed. What was called the digital rebel? No megapixel but I did have for the Canon thirty and I was started shooting movies of Friends of mine. Who were directors said? Would you shoot stills movie and I remember get going into get a sound blimp made for my digital camera and the guys in you and Steven Spielberg's guy or the only people that have blimps for you. These eight thirty eight sixty. Whatever I add albertson blimp. Right Jacobsen Jacobsen recently closed down. There's no need for any other. No ex- exactly. I've got this this whole box downstairs in the garage is because like don't need the blimp. Next time lenses by the I worked on a movie as recently as Twenty fifteen and with a digital camera and they recorded a blimp ahead to go rent one. I mean even even that little clique. If you're onset now we have an issue thousand frames so that one was especially digital you shoot so fast. The first movie I did shoot I had asked me me. Leaders a friend of mine and she also is the executive producer and director of the morning. Show but at the time going back. You know fifteen twenty years. Whenever it was that I was shooting this I said to her. You know this is the first time shooting for a movie. What she's just keeps shooting shoot. Shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot so I did. I shot eight thousand seven hundred and seventy eight frames and thought okay. You know. I'm their mom. Put them all and give them. And then oh no we just need your best hundred. It took me like three weeks to go through every single one of those because I really looked like I was shooting movie. Everything was so slightly different. They know what would you take away from that experience? Really get an editor back to that five role mentality you know. They'll have a budget for three to five roles. And that's what you did shooting digital change anything when you when you shoot because obviously it did change a lot for a lot of people in this idea of shooting maybe too much or a lot or just the freedom they can give you. Some really changed a lot of people's now you know everything is it cyclical now. I've barely picked up my camera now. Also have a Sony seven hours and shooting with my Samsung Galaxy's the galaxy the first galaxy thing. I had a four note for one of the earlier. Ones the best pictures I've ever seen. I went on my God. Look at these pictures that I'm getting on my phone and now I have a lot of my family's mostly apple. Nothing you know not against apple but galaxies have much better pictures you know the Samsung just really has the better technology shooting with your phone and I know friends of mine even say your pictures are so much better than mine. Why is that slow data Samsung if Samsung only made and take get another phone? Get Your Samsung Stolz. But I still like I still like the weight of having a camera and shooting the cameras a different different animal. But now you know. There's a difference for photographers. I never was would call professional photography gallery shows and stuff but I'm not like Greg Gorman. Who was a friend of mine? I didn't shoot and I'm not making money like that as a photographer. And right now so many you can take so many pictures. I mean anybody can get good picture with their phone. You know you can. It's easier to get good pictures now than it used to be. You know you'd have to have a professional photographer do that. Well now I you know people take headshots their phones movies with your eyes. You can do anything. Us forces us to kind of rethink what I should be taking pictures of. And how many pictures should be taking reassessed kind of the nature of it and that's happening. I think you know this return to film. We're seeing people kind of wanting to slow back down a little bit trying to figure out what what's the basis of it. That's really what it is. It's it's a medium. It's like if you're an oil painter if you're into acrylics or if you're doing you know pencil drawings if you're into sculpture it's a it's all worthy it's just a matter of what your taste isn't what it is that you're shooting at that

Meal-Kit Startup Plated Shipped its Last Kit Yesterday

"Ah from wondering I'm David Brown. And this is business worse daily on this Wednesday November twenty seventh. If prepping for tomorrow's big meal is making you think twice about all that time in the kitchen. Maybe it's finally time to try out one of those meal Kit Services you've been hearing about but you now have one fewer service to choose from the meal kit brand plated shipped its last meal yesterday. Supermarket conglomerate Albertson's switch owns plated is taking it in house as a private label line. So what happened then. Whose left standing the meal kit business which used I used to get a ton of buzz not to mention Silicon Valley? VC money has proved much harder to operate than originally thought as we've discussed before the challenges are rife. It's hard to get people to subscribe in once. Subscribe to keep them. The logistics of shipping. Fresh ingredients aren't simple either. In many cases keeping that food fresh rush seems to require an inordinate amount of packaging which environmentally concerned customers object to. And then there's the planning with the meal Kit Service you have to plan in advance which doesn't solve one of the most common problems people have with cooking namely getting to five o'clock and saying what on Earth should we have for dinner tonight but but don't be mistaken. The meal kit businesses still growing is just growing elsewhere namely some big grocery chains after Blue Apron and other startups birth. The meal Kit Market Grocers rushed in now not only albertson's but Kroger Walmart Amazon and even the drugstore chain walgreens all offer meal kits and they have at least two competitive advantages over the blue. Apron's of the World I. You can buy a kit for tonight's dinner on impulse second you don't have to sign up for a pricey ongoing subscription to get it but even supermarkets haven't quite cracked the meal Kit Code consider Albertson's which acquired played for two two hundred million back in two thousand seventeen. It planned to roll out plated meal kits to hundreds of stores but scaled back those plans to just a few test stores in North Carolina earlier of this year according to supermarket trade publication wind site grocery business over time Albertson's found that the economics of the subscription business just didn't work but apparently the supermarket located meal. Kit Plan wasn't sizzling either. Now the grocery chain is building played into what it calls a more comprehensive in house culinary brand will have to wait until twenty twenty to see what that will look like in the meantime Blue Apron which went

Australia's Federal Election May Be a Tight Race

"Ever since Malcolm Turnbull nearly lost the twenty sixteen election, the polls, the pundits and the bidding markets that consistently put lie in a winning position pointing to a landslide this weekend. But such is the magic politics that the federal election could be a lot closer than anyone had the raw to expect a week or whatnot agai, remember during the past half-century close vigil elections favor, the incumbent, you think of Gordon's narrow victory over whitland in sixty nine the so-called don's party or Gillard up against Abbott losing her majority in twenty ten but when oppositions wind power from the government, the victories are usually in fatty, you think of phrases massive landslide against whitland, seventy five or how smashing catering in ninety six but in politics, there are no guarantees, and the smart money is still on a lie. Victory. And according to my guest, that may be a good thing for conservatism and the nation. Australia, where told needs a shortened government to help us break out of Al complacency genital Ricksen is a columnist with the Australian. She's a board member on the institute of public affairs, and a former board member here at the get I Janet, welcome to our Tom, now you're leading conservative commentator. So naturally, many of our listeners here on between the lines. We'll be shocked to hear you say that a and prime ministership could be a good thing house on Tom. I think some of my raiders were shelter and I made that argument few weeks ago, but I think it's we've now come to the position where we need the lived experience of a shorten government to return, the labor party to the wisdom of the hawk aiding agenda. We need a short and government to force a liberal party to get through what I think, is an existential crisis identity crisis to rediscover its roots to rebuild a very confused. Brand. And we, we the voters, we need lived experience of short and government to, to deliver, what I call buyer's remorse to realize that whitland, esque mix of big promises without policies that grow the economy is not just nicotinic disaster. But a social disaster, and I really think you have to go back to the days of the Whitlam era, to, to find the level of complacency that we see today, and my colleague at the astray Lian PO Kelly code. It know that nineteen sixties grand delusion, that continued prosperity was a strategy is destiny. And it's true, we've had almost thirty years of, of economic growth, but that is not a given. So you sign in the shorten economic agenda increases the prospects of a recession, and Farley will be mudbound, reality. I think that's absolutely right. Because Bill Schoten is very honest that he's politics, the politics of redistribution not growing economic pie, and it's it's much easier by the white to redistribute rather grow the economic pie. If you think of the big reform. The hard reforms in a strategy during the eighties nineties, and the early two thousands. They were hard reforms, but they were important reforms. It liberalized the economy. We're not seeing those same kind of policies with the short and government. He's Fago economics is a slogan. It's premised on complacency is premise on emotion. Just listen is shooting in some of the might say that, you know, we're, we're experiencing an ideological seachange in the electric, the oldest twenty percent of the electorate si- fifteen years ago in two thousand and four. When you wrote that conservatism was cool on the John Howard, the oldest twenty percent back. Then they largely voted for the coalition. They've been replaced by the youngest twenty percent of voters who lift, you got social media Twitter trolls, all the ride a poll show that socialism has risen in stature, especially among these millennials. And of course you got tried unions. They luckily to be reim- powered. So have haven't times changed time certainly have changed in the environment's changed. But what? What you're saying is very much. You know, not just the liberal party and existential crisis, but the left side of politics is strong because it's buttressed by so many elements in civil society that you do not see, on the centre-right of politics strata. It's almost as if liberalism depends on the liberal party in a stray area. And if you have a liberal party that stepped away from those basic, liberal values, what's left, so it really is up to other organizations, I think, to build the foundations of liberalism in ustralia to make deeper than the liberal party cannot rest on a conviction later such as John Howard. We haven't had one since two thousand and seven and look, what's happened to liberal values in that time you've had get up. You have the unions, you have the light party and other organizations. It's up to the center right of a Strayer to rebuild to make the case for liberal values. And that's what hasn't happened. You've written the Rausing damp of the wits in the liberal party has lift the joint with dodgy foundations. And just might clear, the conservatives now would rather walk away than stand up and fought. And he also criticized the so-called modern liberals. But at these decisions by the senior liberals to shift towards the so called center at they attempts to adjust to what many political analysts, I is an increasingly more progressive political and cultural landscape. I certainly think that way in politicians nervous about, you know, their prospects that they start to put on new labels. And we're saying range of liberals call themselves modern liberals. Now, I've pressed a few of them as to what the what that means, and it really doesn't mean anything, it's just a bit of branding. I call it branding bunkum. What is the most important to be successful in politics, merger of conviction with good retail political skills? We've seen that before the last ten years, though, we've seen we've seen the party and politicians on the center, right suffer a deficit of both conviction, and, and really good retail politics now recently under Scott Morrison, I think the party has started to reimburse, for example, explain the social good of a strong economy, the virtues of lower taxes, allowing people to have more of their own money to make decisions how they spend their money. But imagine if the liberal party had more core values at the center of it story for the past ten years, it would be in a much stronger position. It's not about rebranding as modern liberal. I mean this, this guy's back today, but Cameron calling himself, a compassionate conservative, or which had Nixon, quote himself, a conservative with a heart. What does it mean if liberal parties, make the moral case for classical liberalism, you want convince voters about the purpose of a liberal governor Cosa, just to clarify, you think it's premature to read the last rods two Austrailia conservatism. Your argument, is that conservatives a losing tonight because they not farting. But Janet, we had on this program last week Tim sue pomace on the former rice discrimination Commissioner, and he I use that a short vitual Mark the end of what's derided as neoliberalism hasn't market capitalism, filed given the widespread economic inequality, wick told by because I think the evidence is just not there for, for widespread economic inequality. It's become a slogan. If you look at their three surveys from the can. Census. And I think there was another one by Hilda. They all showed that inequality has pretty much not changed over three decades of productivity commission. More recently is found that claims to growing income inequality. Not true. The economic growth has lifted standards across all income groups. I mean these are the facts, but the slogan of income inequality is being used to justify dismantling capitalism, in the name of some sort of utopian social democratic project, we've been here before now at this stage Paul's point to alive victory. But Malcolm Turnbull mind tines he would won the election, if it weren't for his wing enemies in the media, and the potty room. Let's hear for major Neal's interview with tumble on the BBC two months ago at the time of the coup in August. We were level pegging on the public Paul's or the opposition and we were four points ahead on the polling in the marginal seats. But basically, you could argue that the concern was not that I would lose the election, but rather that I would win it. You telling me your own party didn't want you to win the next. I'm just saying if you analyze credit. Well, Andrew, you've only got to look at the facts because Malcolm Turnbull on the base on why he would have won the election Janet Albertson.
