"Products guaranteed to work. It has traffic priority in all the other solutions including zoom. Do not have that priority unless you pay up zoom up that is that is literally the net neutrality nightmare. And that's basically what they said today. What if comcast decides to retaliate and like and like limits bluejeans performance on its network? Would then you be teleconferencing cutoffs? That's horrible taste very bad. Very bad. A my immediate reaction was just let it slide but I must. I have to live up to my heels. Isn't like a perverse part of me. That wants like the the the net neutrality nightmare. Add like a commercial where it's like Bluejeans. Like like someone's like like all block easy and garbled on zoom call and the and then the smart person on the other and says hey. Why don't we switch this the Blue Blue Jeans and then and now you're on blue. Jeans is like Oh it's so clear. What a excellence network and services is integrated. Wow yeah that's what they're gonNA do. They're good a change. The name of it. They're not gonNA keep calling bluejeans verizon enterprise conferencing and they will advertise the net neutrality nightmare. Going to say gets priority on Verizon Five G. integrated with built into five G. Network is enterprise grade videoconferencing solution for the future of work. And then they will say something happy about. I've already working from home. That doesn't like your fear of disease. They're they're going to be like in a world of like now. That work has been recalibrated unique. Enterprise class conferencing verizon is there and it's like yeah what you're doing is prioritizing product. And like the they'll be like it works. Ideally on five G. Phones and by the way when you're on a five G. phone on a conference call your porch. Video is really annoying so make sure you go ninety. That's great they bring back. The United States is a delight. That's what we'll see is there. I've been trying to think. What does it mean to integrate into five g? What actually is there. Some like fig leaf. Pretend thing they could say is technically necessary for like the packets to work better. I think it has I really do. Think the edges is more than a buzzword in the sense that we've been living in the cloud era where very highly centralized data centers and the carrier. See Five G. as an opportunity to compete with the cloud by putting little like medium-sized or small data centers. Very close to the towers are very close to the actual access points. And so they can become the next cloud By bundling delivery and Info and that sort of hosting I literally sat through a verizon dinner where they like laid that strategy out like straight up. That's the big strategy is we need to do millimeter wave and all the other stuff we actually need data processing facility near the towers. We'll just over build and sell that that ability low latency to do all this other stuff. That's like the plan. Okay so maybe bluejeans will happen there but like okay well rules zoom get free access to run and your little distributed data center cluster like without paying or blue jeans. Come for free like those. I think are just huge questions of Internet government governance that it's I don't know how zoom competes with that but there's no market dynamic that let's zoom or Webex or whatever compete with that shorter just paying kick paying up. We'll see the other one. That's on the same note. Mackinnon I interviewed Jessica Rosenthal a few weeks ago and we were talking about the. Fcc's keep America connected. Pledge Reggie Pie just like went to all the carriers and made them promise. It will disconnect people for non-payment all stuff carrier's doing it anyway and their claim McCain's writing up their claim. Is You have to tell us not to do it. So if you don't if you don't pay your bill but don't tell us we'll still disconnect you because there's that pledge not enforceable because the FCC has given up its Enforcement Oversight Authority so we're just entering just like very clearly. I can wild West era of Internet government. Like I could not tell you right. Now if rising straddling zoom they have no. There's no requirement for them to say it. I could not tell you if comcast which disclosure investment meaning the whole thing. I can tell you there at throttling. Zoom in one question is like well. Zoom works then. Why was complaining? But I don't know vacuums working as well as a kid even though I rely on my work because they don't have to tell me to tell you see so just a lot wrapped up. This was supposed to be a news bite. It was not I apologize was not a new spite. Well it's got logged off I thought I was going to be the stone. Wash pond there so I'm glad that defeated you. Google reportedly buildings on processors for pixels and chrome which is very surprising because I thought they wound down that team. Yeah well they make the tensor processing unit right. Tpu like machine learning customized stuff. I very surprised by this to the question is are they gonna go the Media Tech Route? Just build low and stuff. Are they building more? Co-processors like they do they do the the pixel processing chip or whatever so they make some custom chips but they've never made like the main at processor and I think making the main processor is super hard because you have to deal with qualcomm patents and it's also hard or not hard. We would have processors in all our phones in the US but we don't Simpson literally makes this. This processor developed year after year. Uses it in their phones in other parts of the world? They could very easily if they wanted to. You'd think sell it here and they would prefer to but they don't and Samsung which sells tens and hundreds of millions of phones can't figure out how to get around QUALCOMM. Google chances of doing it Seem smaller yeah. Also Apple. Couldn't get around qualcomm. They ended up paying them. But I mean apple's paying him for the Modems Google also don't they still have like a a patent war chest could be at some sort of cool school standoff with qualcomm. Who knows man? I mean look the this is the year of the Pixel five th. There's no way this ship if it exists is going into the Pixel five like it's too soon for that. I'd be shocked but this is definitely the like we get to decide if Google is actually serious about trying to get people to buy pixels or not right the four like they're trying but the didn't quite get there either like the is it or it's like the Pixel is just next us but Google happens to make it right And if that's what it is that's fine. Just say so and then once you've done that then they go ahead and build your own wacky processor for it and like take a flyer out and just see what happens and if it bombs. No one's mad because you took a shot on your weird little experimental hardware hobby that you do on the side. That's all fine but if they're serious about like the Pixel is going to compete with all the IPHONE head on and like we're going to sell in big numbers we're GONNA make real money off of it then. This you know reported custom processor is a much bigger risk. I feel like making your own processor is a bet on yourself moment like we we do want to go big and I mean I feel like apple moving to making its own processor and controlling as much of that as possible. Seemed like one of the most genius things in the world in hindsight given especially obviously worked out performance wise and they're just winning like their their own processes are are faster than most of their laptops. But it also gives you so much flexibility control and like Google's obviously moving in this direction. You mentioned those little chips like I. It's just becoming increasingly obvious that a of the way forward for us to get more performance is going to be apple application specific hardware. It's hardware that's designed to accelerate very specific applications on your on your computer or your phone and so it makes sense for Google to get into that if they're very serious phones so if this is true this sounds very serious about phones and maybe it'll be like put it in the six. A and not the full on six. And that's how they're gonNA handle it but there's many options for them and I want the qualcomm monopoly to get like a challenge in a serious way. I really do but I don't know if I trust Google to be that serious. Because they have not to date proven that they are that serious. It's interesting that there isn't an amd to qualcomm Intel right. Yeah it's I mean there's media there's like Samsung. Yeah but Samsung isn't here. Mediatek is in the low end. Like where is the competitor that pushes qualcomm Florida? Maybe it just apple. And that's the way. The mobile market has shaken out. And maybe Google GonNA come at it. I look at this and I'm like yeah they're gonNA make. I think it's more like what Paul said. They're gonNa make some WEIRD CUSTOM PROCESSOR UNITS. They'RE GONNA they're gonNA accelerate the things they care about because like straight ahead android gaming processing is like. That's not the problem. They have with the Pixel. Yeah the problem. The pixels like marketing distribution selling a bunch of the little little like hardware quality. It doesn't feel quite as like premo as the other entered competition and with the Pixel four like this. I get it it like. There's a certain like honesty and humility to it. It's just a phone in feel like just a phone but it's not working like I think it's fine I actually like the aesthetic just fine But it doesn't feel like it's luxurious and fancy and whatever and very clearly you need to if you want a cellphone. The cost than nine hundred dollars. There's another good news. Bite really really got through that quickly okay. I'm GonNa do this one fast. We did it on Sunday this past Sunday. One year anniversary of oxygen promising statement or correction. We ask them. We went out. We said do you have a didn't reply? So that's that is one year. We actually Machu as a professor at the University of Wisconsin. Claire and he wrote his bike past the building. Took another for the building is Mt Earth. Which is like my personal. Like if you remember your guy. There's like a laptop on the table. This isn't like social distancing empty. This is like there's literally concrete okay. Even though like there's a person here taking measurements that has been cleared out. We looked up building permits. Most of the places don't have any building permits the factory however is supposed to open in. May they apparently had an open house which I saw some photos online very much? Like a like a low grade CEOS. They just invited people like look at. Tvs mounted on a wall. Instead of a booth is a real thing they did at the factory. They set up a little. Cbs and people came and looked at stuff have not yet said what they will be building when they opened this factory as I we. We asked various officials. Do you know what we do not know. It's Fox on his. I told us so. Wisconsin story continues into its next round of mystery. What if it the whole time was just a dream factory and what they're building our dreams clearly what they're building at this team's very obvious. The dreams of tax subsidies is what they're building they have claimed Fox and claim that they've hired enough people to qualify for their subsidy payments this year but they hired them all in a rush in December. Like over seventy percent of the people were hired in a rush in December. Just to meet the target so the state is like. Are they doing anything or these last year? They claim the same thing in the say actually found it was less so another turn of the Fox on story. I'm very excited to see what they what are they gonNa make me. It's like it's all I want him. All right. Can I drop a Pas a positive note the Moto G Stylus g? Power of virtual view does Kim factor and some amazing for three hundred dollars. Two hundred and fifty dollars if apple's four hundred.

"My strong belief is at apple selling these just because people want to buy them any insight into this. I just know that there are some people who are like. Yeah by some wheels. I want those wheels. The wheels alone cost seven hundred dollars. So if you don't buy them with your Mac pro each have to eat in an additional three hundred dollars for the wheels which is amazing. I'M GONNA buy the wheels and under by the stand for the pro display. Xt are just GonNa put on my desk. But I but but then if you bought if you bought the Mac pro with the wheels in you regret it and I wish it wasn't rolling everywhere because the wheels don't lock and you want just the standard feet you can now buy those. And that's like another three hundred bucks right yeah. I don't think anyone is buying the defeat. Some people are just going to buy. I promise you someone's going to just stop by. The wheels and apple have made their money. If you just by four aluminum sticks like you have made a mistake but just go to home depot. I like Rod of aluminum and then you add it. Imagine this it's called the path to Mac pro and you buy the Mac pro piece by piece right by the wheels. You buy the PAM mother port city by a graphics card. If you've been vented computers your mentioned the Apple One and you make a wooden case for it. Yeah Yeah. The feet are the feeder to ninety nine in the wheels or sixty nine. We have a post on the site. Taylor lyles read it. She went on four wheels and tires for your car for two hundred ninety four dollars cheaper than the background. That's great I love it. I hope some people people all over America decided they just want some wheels. Maybe they were like you know people are at home. They're like picking up new hobbies. They're building like cars. Should our kids. We should put the nice wheels in the market. I mean I I own a fidget queue. You know something to do just like you know. Roll the little knob around and push a little buttons on the FIDGET Cube. But here's the list of prices whole ass. I phone with an eight thirteen processor. Four hundred dollars wheels. Seven hundred dollars four aluminum posts three hundred dollars. This very cute keyboard three hundred dollars. It's very. It is a very confusing list of prices. Once they get those Mac. Pro Factories really revved up and they paid for the supply chain. You could get wheels for Wheels Se for two nine. Yeah they're going to have to sell those meals thirty five years that's great. I'm sure all of this pricing makes sense in some university. We're certainly not supposed to compare it an iphone. Se Wheels but it is just keep handing it to us all right and then lastly the highlight folks. They put a new APP called ASPER. Oh this looks fascinating so we the IPAD pro. The new one has that light are censor on it. They did this great. Write up of what it's good for. You should read it really interesting but they put out an experimental APP called expert like does scans of objects can't do anything they're like. I can't really do anything smaller than furniture but it can like. This APP can like scan a piece of furniture. GonNa move it around. That's neat and then it can like scan the entire room and then glue the room back on the room and then do effects so it looks like you're walking through cartoon like it's just a neat proof of concept demo for the slider sensor can do. I still don't know what it's for but it's super cool like no one has decided diener has a review. I think Sam Bradford team bought one. So you're GONNA have a lot of fun with this APP. I think what's interesting? Is that the when you look at the map that the lasers draw for the light. Are that anything smaller than its share. It's Kinda really can't get Yeah is that. Is that the scale that we want our working at because you would think they'd want a little bit more there and especially on the IPAD pro like it's not hurting for battery. The could've could've got a little bit harder on that but they didn't. Apparently this APP looks amazing. I'm looking to try it. Yeah I don't I. I'm not sure what the relationship between fine grain light are. Syncing and battery life is these. Are you suggesting that it needs more? Lasers more lasers cost more money or charge more. I don't know here's what I wanna see from someone. Someone by the fully kitted out IPAD pro running about three thousand dollars in attach four wheels to be like this is the most intense ad that apple sells and then and then mail it to the Youtube Channel. Braille Braille skateboarding. And they'll skate it. They'll skate anything. See I bet you money that I have a cow print a gateway tower in my parents. Attic I'm going to buy the wheels and attach it to that. Nineteen Ninety five gateway. See Look at this. It's been like twenty minutes. I've already sold like wheels. Come on this easiest money. Tim Cook ever made going to take a break when we.

"It's Thursday April sixteenth walk into market fully. I'm Chris L. With me today. Mr Ron Gross. Good to see you. My friend always good to see you. Even if it's just virtually my friend we gotta lock going on. We've got some dividend news. We've got an update on the airlines. We've got a new big player in the video conferencing space. But we're going to start with some earnings Abbot laboratories first quarter profits and revenue came in higher than expected. They withdrew guidance for the full fiscal year. And this is one of those companies that I don't own but I'm rooting for them. Because they're one of the companies that launch some cove in nineteen tests didn't agree more and boy. The stock is held up wonderfully in a really tough environment which is not surprising. due to the space therein as you mentioned stock up eight percent year today So how's that for back on your trend It did did kinda crater along with the rest of the market through that March. Twenty third low but since then an amazing bounceback largely because I think as you mentioned they have three diagnostics out there. Right now The third one that was actually launched on April fifteenth which is the antibody tests which so many folks are waiting for somebody administration governments state and federal are waiting for to see if it will help us theoretically get back to something that resembles being normal but overall a very strong report says two and a half percent Interestingly the Diagnostics Division was actually down one percent so while Cova drams up in that area all the other tests they do for everything else Were down as kind of covert takes. Takes the spotlight away from everything else? But pockets of strength in a few of their other divisions nutritional products especially in Pediatrics. As people kind of gathered in hoarded some things they thought they would need that division up six percent pharmaceutical sales up five percents so a pretty strong report overall as you said they suspended guidance. I'm not surprised most if not all Companies are just too hard to see to see out you know. Two three quarters ahead from here But for for Abbott Labs and have it lab shareholders and hopefully for the world. They're doing a good job. What do you think It is gonNA look like when companies start to reintroduce guidance. You think it's going to be looking out through the full fiscal year or do you think it's going to be sort of gradual on a quarter by quarter basis it. Usually you'll get one quarter out and then a full year I think companies are going to be a little apprehensive to go out anything more than one or two quarters so that maybe they'll they'll hold off on on full year guidance or next year guidance which some companies do and we'll take one quarter at a time and even then I will take those those numbers with a grain of salt because while on management will try their best to provide guidance. I just don't think it's going to be very accurate by the way we talked about. You know rooting for ad labs. I think medtronic is another one to root for and it's a medical device company. I don't own shares medtronic but you know if if you're in the business of making things your intellectual property so valuable and one of the devices that medtronic makes is and they came out recently basically said here. You go world like here. Here's everything you need to know about our ventilators. Here's how we make the specs to design the software. All the technical files were making publicly available because the world needs a ton of ventilators. And I just think that's admirable behavior on the part of medtronic agreed simply amazing at the Motley fool. We talked a lot about living by the golden rule and having companies live by the golden rule. And I think this is certainly an example of putting The safety and the health of others ahead of perhaps your own bottom line so really admirable did. The stock of the day appears to be bed bath and beyond because shares bed bath and beyond her up on a fourth quarter report. That was better than expected. Even though same store sales fell more than five percent. Yeah this is one I bought before. The Co vid crisis hit when the stock was really low and I thought Mark Trittin coming out of target to lead bed. Bath had a fair chance of turning this around And then of course covert hidden. All bets are off the stocks down seventy percent year today and all the stores are closed. And they're unfortunately having to furlough a significant amount of their associates Some of their corporate associates Executive team is taking salary cuts as board. All of those things certainly appropriate But in light of that Some some relative good news in the stock is reacting for the period you saw sales up six percent digital sales up sixteen percent Excluding certain charges they were profitable at thirty eight percent earnings per share which is down significantly from this time last year when they were a dollar. Twenty earnings per share but their liquidity appears. Okay one point. Four billion dollars in cash drew down two hundred and thirty million dollars from the revolver. They postponed one hundred. Fifty million dollars in capital expenditures. All things you WANNA see management doing when a company is in trouble you have to go into safety mode survival mode. That's what they're doing cutting costs To try to wait this out to once again open stores and then Mark Trittin can get back to the business of kind of executing on the turnaround in the same boat as you I. In fact I think we may have bought this stock on the same day and discovered a few days. Later that we that we had each bought shares of this thing when it had been knocked down but But Yeah I'm a I'm a big fan of Martin and hoping that just because I own the stock but just hoping she gets a chance to exit his turnaround plan sooner rather than later. Great the latest data point for the airline industry comes courtesy of Oscar Munoz. Who's the CEO of United Airlines? United has cut ninety percent of its flights in May. Because and I'm quoting Muna's here. We expect to fly fewer people during the entire month of May than we did on a single day in May of two thousand nineteen that is that is stark and clear that that is one of those things that everyone can wrap their heads around. Yeah it's really amazing. Impossible to have predicted that. I think it's certainly Certainly month or two ago The part of that letter that I took away also was where he said. Demand WON'T BOUNCE BACK QUICKLY EXPECTS DEMAND to remain suppressed for their main remainder of twenty twenty and into next year. So it won't be like flipping a switch where everyone all of a sudden start traveling again. social distancing will certainly be a big part of that international. Travel will not bounce back anytime soon. So the airlines really counting on that stimulus package which was actually. Some of the details were worked out earlier. This week. for twenty five billion dollars in payroll grants and The airlines have to abide by certain things such as furloughing employees through September thirtieth and limits on dividends and share repurchases and executive comp limitations. All very important things things that I think the airlines should be certainly willing to do for the four ten billion dollars that each of the majors will receive a interestingly that bailout package also gives the government warrants to acquire stock so it looks like we will have some government ownership in some of our airlines. So that will be interesting to watch. Yeah but to your point about not like flipping a switch. It really does seem like with every passing day. We get more and more information about the airlines. It really does seem like it's not going to be a six to twelve months saying it's going to be more like a a two to five years in terms of getting close to the capacity there at before correct in that I mean these prices that might be might be worth your waiting Matt out. I mean if you can bake fifty hundred percent two hundred percent but it takes several years. Those are still great rates of return. You just gotTa make sure that this doesn't continue to go. South in the Balance Zero K and the government stimulus is enough in the government ownership of these companies. Make it a little bit more confusing. something we have to keep a really close eye on. We can add costco to the shortlist of companies that are actually increasing. Their DIVIDEND COSCO's quarterly dividend goes to seventy cents a share. This is an increase of nearly eight percent. This is kind of in line with increases that we saw with Johnson and Johnson and procter and gamble to. Yeah it's a very strong signal coming out at Costco. Who Stock is actually up? Six seven percent year to date which is impressive so along with Amazon and Walmart and perhaps target really going to be the winners here as part part of the retail shakeout in the retail. Shakeout real that for sure is coming It's it's right upon us right now but a very strong signal coming out of COSCO LESS IN MARCH. They announced the nine point six percent increase income sales. Obviously you know that. That's that's a huge number in in a very difficult environment and that's because they offer a value proposition in the merchandise that people want in in good times and in need in in bad times so it's one of those stocks is really held up. Well wonderful business model. Wonderful leadership in culture I voted for years. I assume I will own it for years to come. Yeah I mean I I know. Even at the dividend aristocrats those companies that have increased their dividend for twenty five years or more. I think it's entirely possible that by the end of this year. Someone's going to put together a list of the Dacoven. Nineteen dividend stocks the companies. That actually came out. Increase their dividend. At a time. When everybody else was cutting there's back Or just you know keeping right where it is and assuming that management is reckless and certain- certainly aren't in this case. It is a true sign of balance sheet strength and cash flow generating strength and the two things those two things combined especially in an environment like we're in now are very powerful verizon and is at the center of the deal of the day. Reisen is buying blue jeans network which is a video conferencing company. They're they're not zoom creative name but they're they're much more on the enterprise side. They're they're focused on businesses. I actually I learned about blue jeans when I was reading I think it was the New York Times Story About Bob. Iger getting more involved in sort of the day to day duties at Disney and that was a reference to the fact that Disney uses blue jeans network as their video conferencing. But this is this is We don't have all the details Ron I saw one report. That verizon is paying less than five hundred million dollars for blue jeans when you consider the fries and is a two hundred thirty billion dollar company. It almost seems like pocket change to them. It's one of those little. Tuck in acquisitions that we've been wondering if we're going to start to see Here in this environment and as you say very short on details here less than five hundred million. We blue jeans. We really don't have much user data on them We do think that they have some pretty significant customers. Like facebook. Link Din Viacom supposedly large banks such as Goldman Sachs Morgan Stanley J. P. Morgan Use the technology as well so verizon obviously sees a way to get into the space here they see a way to incorporate it into their five G. Strategy I don't know what that means necessarily yet will keep an eye on it But as you say not a huge acquisition perv for became at the verizon a company that I own And that is a nice dividend payer as well but it's it it will be interesting to see how they get into the space and how big they wanna be in the space and how long that takes you know was thinking that You know we've got a lot of questions about zoom video over the past six weeks or so and understandably so when you consider how zoom has scaled up the security problems that they ran into the performance of the stock and I was thinking you could actually do pretty well with a video conference basket of stocks if you think of Zoom Microsoft. What they're doing with skype and teams Cisco with Webex and now you throw verizon in there because they've got blue jeans on and out that that seems like a pretty nice little basket of stocks yet agree and I. I love the basket approach. You may not do as well as if you just picked the winner which let's face. It is hard to do. I'm so if you attack it. From diversification diversified approach to gain exposure to a particular sector. That you feel relatively confident will be Growing into the future for years to come. It's a it's a great way to to play theme as as we do with things like war on cash. And I've done with the genetic engineering and gene therapies. It's it's a great great way to invest.

"And is it looks like there's time for just one more listener call. We have hand on the line. Hello hannah. Eyelash Harry go, and you have a question about technology in your workplace. Tell us about it. So I'm a huge fan of tools like basecamp slack, dropbox Google Drive. But I do not everyone is so across different work experiences. Co workers had different levels of comfort with tools like these some embrace them, some prefer emails and attachments in one hand, I feel responsibility to adapt to different work sales, but another hands, I think there could get done so much more efficiently ever in could embrace the clever tools wondering how you suggest working with preferences? A good one. It is. It's a lot of conversation around our office. I can, you know, it's interesting to me Hannah because I work on a number of different businesses. We do this show, I have another show of marketing consultancy and each one has its own tech preferences. So on the marketing consultancy project, I'm doing right now. It's this crazy combo people are using and trop box amp as camp and Google slides. And keynote PowerPoint zoom and bluejeans, stop it, you know, depending on which digital agency we're working with graphic designer are random stakeholder, and I think I'm pretty good at this. I like to adopt the tools, but it's now I spend so much time looking for where things were down raider, where supposed to dial in that. There's just too many choices. And you also mentioned nonprofit companies and Indian writer and friend of mine was telling me that she works on a nonprofit committee, where one other committee members that she didn't have word and I was thinking, okay doesn't have word. Don't have basecamp anyway. So I don't know what the overall solution is. But I'm going to start with simplify simplify simplify like if you're leading a team just to say, okay, we're going to slack, and keynote, and make sure everyone has those tools, and has enough time to learn them. Yes. And this was my thought to like, when some stuff is done through one channel and other stuff is done through another and still more stuff is done through another that, just it feels like a recipe for disaster for me. If you really have to use multiple platforms, I would say you should delineate what's happening on each of those that we know which of those, we should go to for any different tasks. Is that what you're trying to do? Now Hanoch sort of figure that part of it out. I mean that's problematic shell near young what we're using, but it's more like we're using it or not, kind of thing, if we're all working on the same checks document can be a document that we can all at the same time, because it's cloud, vile verses having different versions back and forth or whether we can together. Come to a situation where we can feel comfortable cloud documents whether that's ne- helping someone learn how to use it or something like that. First of all, I will say that sending documents back and forth between more than two peoples over. It's over. Force everyone to stop doing that. We would endorse that, yes, Google Drive is fine. You know, I will also say I was I'm the kind of person that when Google Drive first appeared and people started using it regularly. I kind of didn't want to because I didn't like the idea that basically this could possibly disappear at any time someone else, you know, shoot control over this thing. Maybe you didn't want anyone changing your copy that you had. So painstakingly written who would do that. My copies show perfect and great. But I will say that, eventually I got on board. And now I mean our show could not possibly happen, Google Drive, which I think, may be hits another point that you were talking about, and that Liz mentioned is the idea of people learning these things..

"Back to the lawyer and bluejeans show. My name is Jonathan Isaac. And we're talking about privacy. I kind of want to wrap this up. We have a couple couple more things with regards to the privacy. And some of the things we've already talked about the the ring app actually helped win a couple of kids. A few kids found a wallet for this allowed us to see this video because it was caught on the ring Cambe few kids found a wallet was seven hundred dollars cash returned it to the owner and kind of explained to them through the camera. Hey, we have your we find we found your wallet. And all this cash, and I'm sure you want to back. So he, of course, took it back. And we got to see it. You know, it's a nice little gesture, and maybe the youth isn't isn't all that bad. But it's again with regards to the cameras with regards to privacy, e can't you can do whatever you want in your home to a certain extent, we won't we can go into that. Later on to what extent might be. But you can record in in your home. California is a bilateral audio recording state if I'm not mistaken, meaning both people have to agree to be recorded for things to be recorded other states are unilateral. We're just one person has to agree, and that would be usually just the person whose recording. So I don't know one eight hundred seven sixty K from b one eight hundred seven sixty five three six to give us a call. If you want to chime in on this, or if you have an opinion, again, we are let's let's pivot. Actually, let's go to conservative ships and conservative ships are something that sometimes you can't really plan for a conservative ship. In case, you're unaware is where the courts will appoint someone to have control over another one's affairs in decision making skills, and this is very this is a very difficult type of legal case. Because what we're doing is. We're. Taking the rights away from an individual and giving them to someone else. Now granted we might need to do that. Sometimes sometimes people will not be in the right state of mind or might want to hurt themselves or can't make appropriate decisions or have dementia or have Alzheimer's or something like that. Or they might have an episode, and there's been some very public people who've had conservative ships like Britney Spears and Amanda Bines. And if you don't know who they are. Well, you should know who they are. But they're singers and movie stars and whatnot. And Amanda Bines actually had a conservative ship appointed over her in two thousand fourteen she was having some issues with pills and drugs and alcohol and. And she is someone was appointed to be her conservative because of the issue and the episode that she had and same thing with Britney Spears. This is probably the more public one because she had a very very public episode maybe ten years ago or so where she shaved her head and did all this other stuff like that. But it's in the news this week because she her conservative which is her dad and her attorney there were co conservatives one of them is stepping down her her attorney is stepping down as a conservative. And he is now it's going to be the one hundred percent. So I thought this is interesting because with out the proper planning without the proper estate plan, you would need to go to the courts to get a conservator appointed. Or it would be a long dragged out kind of situation where you're in the courts for a very long period of time. Britney Spears when she had her episode her father and her attorney took over as co conservatives over her estate and been managing her business for a long time now and they've done a looks like a pretty good job. She's back, and she's popular again and making a lot of money, and and we got access to a little bit of the records and saw how much she made pretty decent amount of money last year. I think it was like fifteen million dollars or so, but now that her her attorney is stepping away. It's just going to be her father. And yes, that is usually a good thing to have a parent or loved one be a conservative and not necessarily a professional fiduciary or or something like that. But we've also heard of parents who have squandered or done something with their kids money. And and those are obviously terrible situations. But the the fact that her dad is helping out now is a good thing. But it I found it interesting of how much her her attorney was making Andrew wallet was the. The former co conservative looks like he was he got one hundred thousand dollar bonus on his way out and he was making thirty five thousand dollars a month. As a conservative is a lot of money. A lot of money. What does that four point two million dollars year thirty five thousand four hundred twenty thousand dollars a year? I mean, I don't know how active he is. But let's talk about what a conservative ship is. You can have what's called a limited conservative ship or a general conservative ship. And we we do these in our office. We don't like to. But if someone needs help, we're of course, going to help them in. So you have a general conservative ship, which is just anything in general that they need help with medical financial decisions. And then you might have a limited conservatives ship where it's just for smaller things or not as much as the general scope of the general conservative ship would be, but that is an interesting topic. Because if you have a power of attorney, if you have an advance health care directive, which by the way, you have in your estate plan are you should have in a properly. Created state plan. Call us if you want to check out your your information or your your documents for you by a power of attorney has someone appointed their four conservatives ship if it comes to that. And if you don't have those documents in place ahead of time, then you must go to court and conservative ships are not cheap some attorneys charged up to ten fifteen thousand dollars to do one. And remember folks, we only have three judges in San Diego in the probate courts. We have three point four million people in only three judges. So we have one judge assigned for every million people that is just insane million. Plus, of course, but that's insane to think about and these judges don't just deal with people who don't have power of attorney. They have to deal with minor kids who the parents didn't have a proper estate plan or someone who didn't have a trust. If you don't have a trust, you're going to probate if you have assets if you have minor kids. So remember these things take a long long time to you might be six might be nine months or so to get a conservative ship done. And if you have something in place ahead of time, it's relatively quick if not instant so make sure you plan..
Think Like a CEO
"Today's tip is just a short excerpt from my full interview with Tracy limb on the sales success stories podcast. This was the third of the three things that she believes have allowed her to consistently perform as the top account executive at blue jeans. Thank like, a CEO. This is something that I could probably talk to you in multiple different angles. But really when I think like a CEO, I think any sales rep should really imagine their territory as their business, and everyone that is involved in their business works for them. So what that means is any of your colleagues anyone in your company in different departments. You should get to know them. You should really try to understand them as a person built the relationship and maybe down the line. They will actually help you in any large sort of deals that you might have in place in this. Happened to me multiple times at bluejeans from a prospect or customer perspective. I think you should always treat them with respect. You should always be willing to understand the problems in challenges that they wanna solve in always make sure that you follow up with them return their phone, call on emails set the right expectations. Make sure you deliver and treat them like a normal human. I see that a lot of sales reps get nervous if they have to speak with a CIO or a CEO. But at the end of the day just think of them as any normal human being they have a family. They have friends they look further weekends to have fun. And if he kind of break them down that way, then it also helps with your conversations in the future. In reading between the lines on this on kind of think like a CEO in treating other executives. It's it's almost like if you have that mindset, then another sea level executive becomes essentially appear read in may be kind of breaks down that is sort of how you thinking about it. Yes. One hundred percent and for any CEO again, I've never had to experience. But the way that I think of my territory, it's my business any CEO when you're aligned with them everyone's trying to work towards a common goal everyone's looking for mutually beneficial partnerships. So if you kind of have that peer to peer mentality it goes a long way in your sale cycle.

American General Walks Around Downtown Baghdad For First Time In Years
"Although President Trump is pulling the US military out of Syria, the US troops next door in Iraq or expected to stay put there are about five thousand of them, and they keep a relatively low profile mostly sticking to US bases. In fact, it has been years since an American general strolled around downtown Baghdad well that change today and NPR's Jane raff was invited along for the walk. She joins us now from Baghdad. Hey, jane. Hi, mary. Louise, so how significant is it for US commander to be out and about walking the streets. Baghdad Email, it's pretty significant. Because really it hasn't happened for very long time. This particular commander was Brigadier General Austin Renfer, and he's deputy commander of US forces in Iraq. So he was taken along by his ranking counterpart to three star general named Jalil by now Iraq for the past three years. It's been busy fighting ISIS. So it hasn't been really as safe as it is now and all. Also, you know, the Iraqis aren't so keen to have US generals walking around their streets because they're Iranian-backed groups that think all the US troops should leave. There's the legacy of the war. So to help him walking around amid thousands and thousands of people was kind of a big deal. And did he have a huge security entourage with them? I mean, how he being protected he did have security entourage. He had a personal security detail, and they were armed, and they were certainly keeping watch. But you know, at one point we were having tea on this kind of raised platform in the middle of the street. And there were literally thousands of people who are jammed into these narrow alleys doing their shopping going to the pet market. He himself was wearing a marine uniform. No body armor, very relaxed foulest kind of the most surprising thing that in the midst of all this chaos, which you would normally think would be potentially dangerous. They didn't. Seem to feel there was much of a threat. And you got to talk to them shell we're out and about walking. What did he say about what he was seeing? And how he felt about it. So we have to remember that. This is a guy who has been through Volusia, you know, the battle for bluejean two thousand and four which was absolutely horrific. This is not his first time around. Here's a little bit of what he had to say the be here right now and see the city centre thriving. It's like an open market if you didn't know any better, you'd swear you're in any major city in the United States any major city in the United States. Jane, I'm going to be skeptical there did it really feel like Boston or LA. Maybe not. But I think what he's comparing it to is all the other times he seen Iraq. And that's what a Rockies compared to as well. But still it's not exaggerate Baghdad has quite a lot of problems. But for the first time in sixteen years since Saddam Hussein was talking when you talk to most Araki's, they say, this is the safest they felt in years, which he getting double. Takes from Iraqis in the markets and in the streets. What what was their reaction that was so interesting because you know, I would have thought that he would. But either people ignored him which kind of indicates they've moved on or they wanted to take selfies with him. There were a couple of people who yelled at him about the American presence. But by far most of the people were either bemused or seemed quite positive to see him walking around listening to you. And clearly, this is progress clearly this is something that could have happened even a few years back, but also feel so telling that it is still quite such a significant thing sixteen years after the us led invasion for US commander to be able to walk the streets evacuated. Absolutely. In one of the things. It says to is that even though ISIS has been pushed out of the city's Ren fourth and his Iraqi counterpart are very clear that does not contrary to other conceptions mean that ISIS is defeat. Waited. You know, I it takes a lot of effort by the Iraqi military in new us advisors to keep it as safe as it has been so all of those thousands of people. They're also backed by immense efforts that go into every Friday holiday making sure that attacks don't happen. They're very aware still that ISIS could still be out there, and they're not letting their guard down. Thank you. Jane? Thank you. That's NPR's. Jane Arraf reporting from Baghdad.

We like to take your calls at one eight hundred seven sixty K F B when they entered seven sixty five three six to get attorney Justin is here. What are you doing? Well, we're actually triple live.

If you want a tune-up stage stay with us on radio, but you can watch us if you want to see a stupid. It means we've got to sit up straight. So we're going to be doing. Oh, you know, what we have? I wanna forget that at the half hour. We're going to have Ray from clearer and clearer pulls call in. There's some pretty cool stuff that we're gonna be talking about with him. So that's pretty interesting that you wanna stay tuned for. We all start out the show with what happened last week kind of like what happened last week as you. The only thing legally that happened that I thought was real interesting was the Cohen situation pleading guilty to lying to congress or the FBI both. I think congress I dunno both amateur. Anyway, he lied if you just look at TV Cameron lie. That's okay. But if you lied to congress or the FBI agent, no good order in court under penalty of perjury. And he of course, that's bringing up a whole bunch of stuff politically, which we're not going to go into. But he is going to be sentenced not too far from now. And so is Manafort, and as a lawyer, I'm interested in those things, I think it's interesting that you've got Manafort who did a bunch of stuff, and you could say was most of the stuff he was convicted of if not all at this point was before the Trump issues. But then he makes an agreement and this is this is to me amazing as a lawyer forget to politics. He says he's going to work with the special prosecutor. And so he's going to try to get some leniency and give them information that they're looking for memorial the other and he's also got a joint defense agreement with Trump's legal team. You can't do both. That is unbelievable. No wonder Matt Moore has pulled the carpet from you can't do that. Because he's telling Trump team everything that Moore is asking and then some ostensibly leash join a defense agreements are very common, but they're not common when you decide to cooperate. That's when they end, and quite frankly, I found that really interesting. And of course, he's going to be sentenced as well. I think it's to March. So there's going to be memos. And I am one of the ways that I think from a loss. Dan, porter attorney general acting attorney general Whitaker is technically in charge of the investigation now, although the say, Rosenstein Rosenstein, is is still managing it. I I don't know that for sure, but one of the ways we're gonna get information and potentially get more facts is not necessarily to the attorney general. But that's where normally goes it goes asked to go through the attorney general, and then attorney general can say, no, I don't want anybody here in that that that's within his power. So what Motors doing it appears is that he is saying I'm going to now do these charges, and I'm going to create all the open court evidence. Why these charges are sustainable which takes the power away from Whitaker which? Has to some degree. So I'm talking to legal. I'm not talking right or wrong, or whether you know Trump's have done this or not or Russia, collusion and all that stuff. But it, but as a lawyer, I think is rather interesting to see these developments occur. So you got Cohen going down. You got Manafort going down. Corsi going down. There's a whole bunch of stuff happening. And I pretty much predicted that after that waiting period of prior to the election when everybody went dark, you know, the FBI went dark they're coming out like fireworks now. So I think you're gonna find the next few weeks to be rather interesting. And there could be some bombshells going on knows. I dunno one eight hundred seven sixty cave. You got anything to say about that? Or you'd rather just sit there and go I mean, it's it's in development, and I like to usually wait until all the things come out for sure. Just talking about the legal. Interesting as a lawyer, I think is really intriguing idea to and the fact that, you know, he's a former attorney that has all these kinds of issues with lying lying harped on us from the very beginning. When going to law school going to have to do. Ethics exam separately. And also having that on the bar, lying and co mingling of funds are probably the biggest things that we have to look out for we have to stay away from. Well, that's a lawyer. That's the ethical issue line is everybody shouldn't lie. It's a much bigger deal for us. It's a very big deal. Isn't it as an attorney? Well, Cohen is an attorney for Senate Turney. No, no, no, no. I'm just saying I was talking about Cohen in general. Yeah. I find it very interesting. It seems to be leading to a certain point now. And I'm curious as to where that will be because it feels like we're building something it's been building. And and, but I don't know. I mean, nobody knows when when when the president said, no collusion. That's true. We don't know inclusion is not a Trump Clark crime. It's conspiracy. That's kind of a cousin to it. But nobody knows we just don't know. And I guess the day, hopefully, we deserve with all the taxpayers money and time and consternation to find out. What we should do that.

Reformer are sentencing reform because that's what's going on. Yeah. And I think I totally agree with you. I think it's important to give the judge a little bit of leniency. That's what they're there for when it comes to sentencing and to have someone who committed a non violent crime received forty years for having maybe a little bit of marijuana. Buying a Snickers bar stealing a Snickers bar Xenos insane. Sorry, folks. You know, we need some open mind just country in many ways is a very closed minded country. I'm going to say, I mean, we everything or so many people look at situations black or white, right or wrong. There's no in between life is gray life is all over the place. And and I'm I'm telling you a lot of religions preach that right? It is what it is. I mean, it's black and white the laws reflect our religion in many cases and people say it's Judeo Christian world. I don't know if that's accurate anymore. But you know, whatever the reality is is that our laws should not be that way, three strikes, and you're out and a lot of people say, well, that's a liberal concept. No, it's not almost all Republicans are on board. Mitch McConnell is not because he won't put this thing on on the floor. But we I saw Lindsey Graham this morning talking about it. And he was pleading with the president, call Mitch McConnell and get this going eighty votes out of one hundred is what he says they have and Booker for the Democrats have made this work with Chuck Grassley. And it's a bipartisan group of senators that as four provision to a house passed Bill that focused on reducing prisoners recidivism. Includes language that lowers mandatory minimum sentences for drug felonies, including reducing the three strikes penalty from life behind bars to twenty five years. That's crazy. That provision would not be allowed to take place retroactively, which is a concession from the Democrats. They wanted this to be retroactive. It seems that that would not be an unfair. I mean if you can do this. Why wouldn't you do it retroactive come on if it's wrong? It was wrong, then well, they're probably looking at taking steps in the right? Dr understand that wealth to compromise. Republicans want to act with the people already in. I'm sorry. I don't agree with that. And I'm not trying to get political. I just legally if you're going to do it do it for everybody don't do it for just going forward. But I can see an argument that was in place. It's grandfather did it. Also includes Senate language at retroactively applies to fair sentencing act of twenty ten which reduces the disparity in sentencing guidelines between crack and powder cocaine offenses, and it would reduce mandatory minimum sentences that going to affect what a firearm is used during a violent crime or Karago offense to letter also would not apply to people have sentenced for these crimes. So the agreement. Also, let's just take advantage of safety valves. I like that which allows them to issue sentences shorter than the mandatory minimums for low level crimes in more cases. Now, I know the argument out there folks, one eight hundred seven sixty care Fenby, the judges have too much power. The judges are making the law the judges are liberal, and they're putting you know, they're just letting everybody run around. That's not true. That's just not true. It is in some areas. There's no doubt that some judges that are very extra liberal. But when you look at the composition of our judges in this country, most of them are more conservative, and I will guarantee you they're more judges in this country that are Republican and democrat. But having said that we do the right thing. It should not be a party or political situation. And the right thing should be treat the world as it is which is not one or the other it's gray and we need now. Sometimes people will abuse the discretion. I get it. But what's worse over restricting people's rights or making a mistake once in a while on the other side? I think we just have to look at societies one eight hundred seventy five three six to you. Welcome to come in and argue with me, or or whatever you want. But this is and Trump has as endorses Bill, by the way. So it's it's definitely something that has been negotiated. It's been in the news too. And and and but again, it's going to happen now because we have. When the majority by far majority rules, and we got one man that's stopping well. There's a lot of control there. And I think that we do need to have a little bit of checks and balances within our own system in the senators that the legislature. I it's just it's so it's so convoluted sometimes too, and it's really important to to to remember how unfavourable Congress's because. And that's why I don't understand if we can go off on a little bit of a tangent here. I don't understand how they keep on getting voted in. When there's an eighteen percent approval. They're not show. They are because congress it's really oh gets voted back in a rate of about eighty something percent in this last election showed there's thirty four thirty. If you if you look at how the overall approval percentages eighteen percent, and you have an eighty percent overall reelection. That's that shows. Something's a little bit wrong there, in my opinion, the only people who can change the rules congress. Well, you're seen. We saw what they call the Blue Wave. I mean, you know, what's real? In california. Well, look at this in California was I mean, Orange County doesn't have one Republican congress. That's unbelievable. Orange County used to be like Alabama. I mean, it was conservative. And now, there's no Republican. But we do have Mr. hunter in in one of the district's here in San Diego. He may be voting from jail. But we'll find out as we go for. I don't then I went to school with his dad, by the way, I'm not. I I don't know. We may be innocent whatever he's under indictment for like thirty counts of stuff. And I went to school with his dad, actually, I kind of worked with his dad. I actually did some cases with his dad senior Duncan Hunter senior. But that's that's another issue. So I think you know, they're supposed to represent us those congress people are they are they really representativeness. But anyway, we're gonna come back, and we're going to talk about blasphemy blasphemy. I can't even say it. And why people go to jail for same bad.

"Seven sixty KFI Welcome back to, the, lawyer, and bluejeans show my name is Justin Isaac and I'm sitting across. From the volume blue jeans Jeff Isaac and. We are talking about law and life and everything in. Between we've gone over a few interesting topics today maybe we'll touch on them next. Week as well too but I. Think we want to spend the, last couple of minutes talking about trust so. Gene kind of reminded us sometimes we need to trust attorneys and this is kind of what we do we need to, talk about trust and maybe. Dispel some myths that people are under some pretty common misconceptions like joint tenancy Before we do that let's, just talk about one thing that I call. It the p. word and that's almost everybody that ever comes into the office ingestion you see that too as an attorney How many people have been meaning to do this but I just got from the doctor and I got some good news or I'm going on a cruise and I'm not worried that the. Plane is gonna fall and I've been procrastinating putting it off. And and and when. I go when we do these seminars which we're going to do and they're going to be huge in September eleventh twelfth and thirteenth. Is going to learn bluejeans dot com You will see that When I asked for show of hands of how many been thinking about, coming to our seminar it's usually fifty to seventy five percent of the people in, that, audience has said yeah I've been thinking about it for years and they just don't find. Time to, do it and meanwhile sometimes you die and your family has to go to probate not. Good all too often, we've seen that too where people delay or there's been something that's come up because it's it's. Not a fun topic. Let's let's be real it's put it in the. Back, of. The list yeah, exactly and, you know sometimes people I think the record our our office was seventeen years from start to finish when someone I started, and then finally signed, and, you know what honestly we're just happy when people signed because that means now, you're prepared now you're you're protecting your family, because if you don't then the other pe- one probate is what your family is going to have to participate in, or the b word which is a bucket list because it's a bucket list item. That everybody should have if as long as, you know about it when you, go to the. Seminar you'll find out but a lot of times, of station the bucket Never come back and you know whether whether. You're you don't have, to be you know fifty sixty seventy years old this should be for any new parents as. Well any homeowners you. Don't want your your things you don't want your. Assets, to. Go through probate, you don't, want them to go through the courts you want them to go to the people that you choose because that's you're right, this is your property, so, it's important to be prepared to plan ahead into think about these things unfortunately, they are a little bit uncomfortable for some, people but I think that the way we approach it is we we make it a little bit lighter are seminars, have very light and you know we we have fun with it too and there's. A lot of good information to so most, people leave I I don't really, know of anyone. Who's ever asked for the money back, but never Because they don't pay they don't pay so no no you'll be happy you we have. We have fun but it's serious stuff but the, most important thing, it's called responsibility so a lot of people say well it's not fun to think about insurance. You still buy it because people get sued all. The time eleven lawsuits. Filed every minute just in state of California so here's the deal when you, when you, when you have that trust. You you buy yourself peace of mind and it's. Not unlike. Insurance except it's much stronger in. Other words what it does is ensures your family. That they will not have to go to the. Government when you die or if you become incapacitated you get, control not the government. Because that's your default. Position the government is the default position not that I'm against all government I. Am, not I believe in homeland security I believe in, firefighters have believe in a lot of things that's that's about as political as I'm going to. Tell you but I do believe. In a lot, of, things our government does but I, don't believe the government should pick pocket us. On our way out. Of, this world and that's exactly what they do to the probate everything's already, you already You pay taxes on. It why do we. Have to go through this again I think that's one, of the important things that people don't know is that they assume that everything just. Goes to their, spouse into their kids and you know in my but what does that take eventually it will get them after, maybe two three four years maybe not and, and you know you might go to someone. Else's well too but also there's. A lot of fees involved and. Everything's frozen people. Don't know that your assets, are frozen for multiple years and that's not very fair to your kids you know if you wanted to go to your. Kids your things but whoever you want to exactly, and do you, get to choose if your kids are not your favorite or if they're doing things that you. Don't like then give it to charity if you. Want to do that Gee You're fully with a good. Idea do whatever you would like we were, talking you started to say joint? Tenants, yeah, no I interrupted, you but which which is unknown to, do But we do talk about. Joint tenancy and let me just give you a clue we're, not going to give you the answer but, we're going to tell you the truth and the truth. Is joint tenancy if you're in it and you own your home in that like most, Californians you're, in the wrong mode and we will show you why it will not work. So if nothing else motivates. You find out why your joint tenancy titling. Is not correct and we'll we'll. Go over that and plus a ton more, in a couple of weeks so? It's, gonna, be fun I, can't wait to see everybody.
