"And Taylor, one of America's oldest department stores, is filed for bankruptcy. Let's talk about it with Jan Rogers Kniffen, who is the CEO of J. Rogers, NIF and worldwide. In New York Jan. Welcome back to the program when it comes to AH, retailers lining up in bankruptcy court. It's starting to look like the list of anchor stores that are really popular Mall 30 years ago. Lord and Taylor Neiman Marcus. Ah, number of big names have filing for Chapter 11. Yeah, You left out J. C. Penny, who also filed so If you look at the anchors there, they're all in trouble. And, of course, Macy's has also announced that it's going to close the whole bunch of the anchor stores in the balls. So all of the anchors have shown really damage from Cove it But as you and I both know They were showing damage long before covered. So if you look at the list of retailers I have going bankrupt. There's 23 a moment, I think on my list that have already filed There's like 43 on the S and P list file because they track a broader group and I do that would be the most this year will be the most since 8 4009 time frame so the most in the decade that Have filed for bankruptcy, and we've also seen all of them just reducing store footprint, even if they're not going back right there closing stores and getting smaller and putting more of their business Percentagewise online. That trend has been going on, you know, since at least well before 2014 but I started writing about it in 2014. All this is really accelerated. So all people on the list that I've got here they're going bankrupt. I would have said We're in danger of going bankrupt sometime between now and 2025 anyway. It's all been accelerated now into 2020 because of Coke.

"Trying out short stories always your first story when you I mean not so much the first one that you can. Write maintenance sixteen and Seventeen I was reading science fiction I. there's a there's a story called repent Harlequin said the tiktok man by Harlan Ellison and it was in one of those you know world's greatest science fiction's nineteen, sixty, six, nineteen, Sixty, seven is a collection. And I would read those things back and forth I just loved them. I remember sitting in bed. Reading that story again but TIKTOK man story and I thought I could probably do something like this and And went downstairs and got on the Family Commodore Amiga. which had at that point had been just used for defender of the crown and there was you know a pre wordpress or not were pressed but a pre word program that we had on there and I sat down and wrote a story and it was a science fiction story it was absolutely horrible. It was something about trying to be. Satirical without even knowing satire was at that point is trying to be funny without really having a sense of irony or I had it but I didn't know how to portray it online on on the page. Yeah. and I. Remember. It took it took me a couple of hours and finished it. brought. To my girlfriend at the time I said, hey read this she looked at it. She read it kind of is like, what are you like you should keep trying? All right. At least you didn't say stop. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah. It was very nice her was there someone in your family because I mean getting into English and you're talking about some of the books that you read and then into writing? was there someone in your family that? Product you towards. Your joy for reading. Would you even define it as a joy for reading because absolute our devour books? Yep well, maybe not as fast as some people but yeah, I am constantly reading Yeah my mother she she got me into reading very very early I I. What I finally decoded everything figured it out. I, brought a stack of my. You know my doctor seuss books down to her while she was watching the. Cable Net. So I think and just started reading to her out loud and and from that point on there was always a there's always book around it was something that I could always retreat to I didn't know it at the time but just personality wise I'm fairly introverted doesn't mean that I don't like people just means I need to have some alone time and that's where I would get it. I could go home. I'd read a Stephen King Book Re. Short Stories I. Got Into. A. Clockwork. Orange. And all those dystopia novels and you could use that to kind of relax and recharge by between her and my brother. My brother was the one who also use like, Hey, you should read this your one flew over the CUCKOO's nest. Now here's a coke orange like I said, hey, did you get the new Stephen King? They would just feed me stuff and then you know there's All over the house and so I just had my pick I just walk around and you know. GonNa re I didn't know Stephen King wrote four books. You pick that one up and move on from there and then start developing your own tastes and and move on. I think you might mention of it. What was your first piece of writing that you handed into someone besides your girlfriend for a critique? That was junior year. and we're supposed to write a fictional story I ended up fictionalized event that. You know that we want to up at my mother's Relatives House up in Jersey and that crashed and burned really really. Well, it's. I was I was up against another kid in class meaning we we've been partners. and. He wrote this amazing piece of course and then and he wrote I of course to read his out loud and then I read mine and it was just frigates. Suddenly found in this as well But he you know go ahead go ahead. Well I. got the feedback that that at the time. I needed you know. Every writer when they go into writing for the first time especially that age you don't know what revision means you don't know really what constructive feedback means, and so that's that's what the teacher is trying to say look it's not going to be perfect. The first time this is a rough draft, and so you get the positive stuff in the negative stuff and you go back and Redo it and I I went back and wrote a different story instead because I was embarrassed and I didn't know how to you know handle that particular situation. But I I, I, put it through three or four drafts, and then my teacher was like, yeah, that's what I'm talking about it. That's that's how you do it, and so you learn from those particular situations. How is your your balance of confidence with your writing even though it needed Some revision is standing there in reading in front of your your classmates, the confidence. Could did you have a balanced with that because personally I remember my first year university might first communications class in my knees were shaking and I was scared forty people in the class I looked at my communication Susan. Shut up. Even. Though I had a paper here in front of me. How was your balance with that? Probably. Mighty pen. Yeah, exactly you know naked in front of the class. Yeah well, that's that's exactly I. I. Don't know if if my voice was shaking, my knees were knocking at that point I? Do Remember one of the things I was trying to make sound. Funny. Did Not come off as funny. and there is just silence and it was that the that feeling in the pit of your stomach in front of your, you know this is an advanced English class eleventh grade and. I was like Oh man I blew it. You know from that point on he's going to. And finishes. Waiting for you to be over. And there's been plenty of those moments too. Yeah exactly especially following the other guy who? It was he was I. think he ended up being the Valedictorian and just he just knew what he was doing at an early age You know. There wasn't any ever like any jealousy of my my half. I was just always like man he's so much better. But that takes humility right like just to say no. That guy's talented. Suppose just recognizing it. Yeah. Recognizing I mean acknowledged that wow, that guy's talented I have some ways to go. Yeah and Also. Just being a nice person but also I think. It wasn't a secret how good he was everybody knew that because he was he was killing across all of the subjects and it was just one of those things I have no idea where this guy came from it he's amazing. and I think he had transferred over freshman year so we didn't know. Nobody knew who why non horses exactly. Wow. You're awesome in everybody's Askar you. Just for you just to realize, okay, you gotta work on it a little bit more and then you'll succeed. Yeah that's why people like that exist. It's it's. A It's what gives you drive sometimes I. I gotta hit that level. So after university, what was your? What was your mission? I was a drummer and punk rock bands and we were touring up and down the east coast playing basements in bars and small clubs, and we recorded a whole bunch of albums and that was what we were trying to do. I did that for about three and a half four years? Yeah. Yeah Absolutely yeah. It in me see in. One of the band's had a few in there even though I did not play guitar if I got a base and I kind of plunked around and figure out what the notes were and showed it to the guys who knew better than me and we fashion. A song out of that, I could I could yell scream. Or sorry y'all sing. With some sort of melody in there, some sort of harmony. Another band was I started getting more confident. Now is a fifty percent songwriter with that group. and then you know, 'cause you hop around from band abandoning. You know they last a year or two so that there was another band you know those those I who were punk rock ish or just rock bands then got into like an old country band where I was a one third singing partner in writing partner. After that, I got kind of got tired of of writing and I just WANNA play drums. I played A. Backup not. WanNa sing right now I, just want to play drums. I'm already doing five things at once and adding in their six so. Let. Me just play drums but yeah, it was it was a Lotta Fun. How much will even bringing up the confidence level? How much was that good for you to be on stage? I mean. Did that add
Pilgrimage to Sacred Activism
"Hi Andrew and welcome on to the hey house meditations podcast how wonderful to be with you and how wonderful to have the opportunity to speak to whoever's listening from my heart. Out wonderful wonderful. I'd like to talk to you today about the Fifteenth Century Poet Mystic Kabeer. Who you've been doing so much work on and and perhaps have you read a few of his lines. That articulate a meditative experience that is at once transcendent but also completely grounded I really appreciate that in computer But before we get there, there's a pilgrimage that I like to ask you to take us on a pilgrimage to the ark of of your own spiritual journey. An ARC that is has taken pauses with a variety of traditions, teachers, and Gurus and especially that are of the internal pilgrimage of the heart. So I wonder if you'd take us on that pilgrimage and then we'll sort of maybe conclude with Kabira. Does that sound all right with you? That sounds wonderful. Today and your little remission it it's. Never ends. I remember when I was with father bid when he was dying and. The thing that struck me most and move me most about him here. He was the greatest living Christian mystic but even on his deathbed when he was eighty seven, he was still striving for deeper and deeper realize. So he gave me a permanent image of what this really is journey of endless expansion. Shems of Tabriz said to Rumi. The world of God is wealth of endless expansion. We don't ever arrive. We just go Diba and DEEPA and Deepa went blasted where wild enough were brave enough into a mystery that always keeps opening onto wilder and holy vistas. This is my experience. Yes, and you're well I must say your your life has demonstrated that but I'm not exactly certain if you knew that when you were born. In mother India right you are. You're born in south India early in your life. You earlier in life you're surrounded by multiple religious by religious face including your your parents Protestant faith. And among the Hindus and Muslims. So how did that early on your life? How did that shape your outlook on the nature of humans on the nature of people and the nature of the divine? India is too big bomb in a well the distill known that live as cred experience. And that mock me forever I feel that I have an Indian. So a European mind and an American mission. So my deepest deepest ground is always in there especially in south India. When I was born. Nineteen fifty two was the twilight of the Rosh. So this. Was the atmosphere of an. Empire would still. Diffused itself through everything but India itself although it had been dominated by the British in never lost its passionate spirituality and that's what I met in the earliest and most impressionable years of my life. I loved going to temples with my Hindu coke. I loved learning the hail. Mary from my Catholic nanny and I loved it when the driver that we had to as a Muslim stopped the car in the middle of traffic and put his. Prem Don and chunk to Allah. In very early on. I met a saint and this is an extraordinary story because I had white Russian. Godmother. who used to smoke cigarettes out of black along black cigarette holder in Lyon dressed in gold she fall she looked like a Russian Melena dietrich and I was crazy about her she's. and. Every day off to school I would go running up the stairs of her flag. And jumped into bed between her and have great friend who is huge Rowley poterie Indian woman Shanti. Of course as a child I didn't know. Shanti Shanti, later revealed to me it was India's greatest living Quila and she is the child had been. A welcome to previous incarnation and a gunman, a group of journalists to the village that she'd been born in. As, a nine year old recognized absolutely everybody and Meta previous husband and said the money looking for is under a break in the back. So he went and found the money that he'd been looking for. Any. gave. Me a lot of profound simple instruction. She told me two things that have not my whole life. She said God is one. God is the sea and all religions alike rivers that run into the sea. So. Don't get hung up on anyone religion realized that they're all different expressions of the same unity, the different expressions of the same reality

The Big Tech Hearing Proved Congress Isn't Messing Around
"The purpose of today's hearing is to examine the dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. Roger the covert 19 pandemic. These corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. As American families shift more of their work, shopping and communications online, These Giants stand to profit. Locally owned businesses. Meanwhile, Mom and pop stores on Main Street facing economic price is unlike any in recent history. Rhode Island Democrat David Cellini, opening today's House hearing with the heads of the world's big tech companies. Amazon's Jeff Bezos out of Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google Sunder Pitch I. The foremen faced hours of questions from House lawmakers over whether they've used their superpower status to crowd out competition. And enrich themselves. The House Judiciaries Antitrust committee, which Cellini chairs has been looking into that question for the last year. Joining us to talk about the hearing today is tech expert Tim Woo. He teaches at Columbia Law School and is the author of the book The Curse of Bigness, Anti Trust in the New Gilded Age. Him welcome back to press play. Thanks for having me here. Well, you've argued for a very long time that the's tech giants have gotten too big. What do you think today's hearing accomplished in terms of getting more support to break them up? Well, they I think there are you know, for the first time, putting the most intense documents right in front of them and seeing how they react, and I think what we've gotten out of them, especially on Facebook. Is already some admissions of anti competitive intent that to my mind, make the case for filing a complaint even stronger. And what were some of those admissions that you heard today. Well, Ah. Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about by Jerry Nadler about the his. Ah, why he bought Instagram and pretty much Zuckerberg admitted they were ah, dangerous competitors. We sought to eliminate them at Natalie reminded him that it's illegal to buy off competitors because I don't want to compete with them, and they left it there. But, yeah, that was, I think a big admission and the main thing I've taken from the hearing so far. But isn't that part of business of hostile takeovers and trying to squeeze out the competition isn't part of the American way of doing business, so there's a difference between beating out your competitors and buying them. And since about 18 90. It's been illegal to buy a company just because you're sick of competing with him. You know, you could imagine. Let's take Coke was tired of Pepsi People's Children, Coke and Pepsi, you know and said, All right, forget it. We'll just buy each other and, you know, settle the so so Now it's been illegal since 18 90 or so. Right. So when it comes to Facebook, what about the issues of how it Spreads misinformation, especially campaign misinformation, and, you know, fake news for lack of a better term. Yeah, I know. It hasn't so far. Um, it has a little bit sorry, especially hate speech. I think the big issue there that they're focusing on and Is this idea that that Facebook has an impunity because they have such a secure market position that they're not really afraid of advertising boycotts. They're not really afraid of people leaving That's the least a point that the House representatives were trying to make, and so therefore they don't really have an incentive to clean up their act. What about the other companies? Amazon that also has incredible market share. Can you first catalogue just how big Amazon is and how much bigger it's gotten since the current virus epidemic? Yeah, you know, the Amazon has closed in on the market cap of 1.5 trillion They have 280 billion in revenue. They have increased dramatically. Actually, stock prices increased since the beginning of the Corona virus by I don't know the exact percentage don't want to get it wrong, but by a tremendous amount, in fact, And there was one day in which Jeff Bezos gained $13 billion personally, so they are the biggest of big attack for the first part of hearing they didn't get any questions, but representative Dia Paul brought it in accusing them. Of lying in front of Congress about how they treat third party sellers and pressing bass. Those hard on how he runs his marketplace. So they they, they've got some of they've got some fire. Coming in. Yeah, I guess the problem. There is not only well they sell, you know products from third parties always there slow selling their own products, and so they are. I guess in competition with 1/3 party supplies on their own platform. How does that work? I mean, that's I think the acquisition or the problem is that people worry that Amazon has become more or less the dominant online retailer. They have some competition Homer, but you know, more or less dominant. So you make it on Amazon are Or you don't make it at all. And if that's the marketplace, the prospect of You come up with successful thing? I don't know Better mousetrap, and then Amazon makes their own copy of it. So the Amazon version of it and then sells it for less. You know, that turns into a sucker's game, and I think that's been the main complaint about Amazon is ah, less that they You know about their competitors or something but more that they have turned the marketplace into something of a rigged game for their own products. Right and a sweet noted Jeff Bezos is the world's richest man. Right now, the company is you outline is just so big. It's hard to even wrap your mind around it. Is there any way you could break up Amazon or hasn't just become too big to break up? That's a good question. You know, it hasn't been subject to a lot of discussion, probably for the reasons you suggest. Most of scrutiny of Amazon is how they treat the marketplace. I think for a true old school antitrust type who just believes that too much power to concentrated should always be broken. Would want to switch, you know, break Amazon into some kind of pieces. One way might be to break off their Web services division, which is a dominant in its space. You could also imagine, as with it and t breaking it into baby Amazons. I guess that are supposed to compete with each other. But I know it hasn't been unlike Facebook and even Google. Has been talks about how would you break them up? Think Amazon. It's been more about can they? Can you get them to run their at their market place better? And then Google. Obviously a search giant and it's become a verb. It's such an intimate part of who we are at this point again. How would you break up Google if you could It's a good question. Let me let me say that Google has come under fire this hearing both from Sicily knee on the idea that they are essentially eating their ecosystem That is to say. You know if you if you like like with Amazon actually similar that if You know, you could come up with a really successful Web service of some kind in your sort of small enough that Google will make a version of it and then send all the traffic to it so that that's the accusation against them. As for you know, what would you do to Google one You could say, don't do that. That's what the Europeans are trying to dio. Another would be to say, Well, listen, it Google, you run the search part and just leave it there. Don't do everything else. Okay. Maybe run Gmail, maybe right maps. But all these other little things that are just clones of other companies. Stay out of that, or make them be independent companies. I should add. By the way, there's you know, I'm maybe we get to this, but there's been AH, Google face us a lot of Republicans during the hearing, talking about different issues. Trying to get Google to admit that it Ah Is too friendly to China. Eyes too unfriendly to the US Pentagon. That's been another theme of this hearing is that I think should be mentioned. Well, you bring up China, and I guess the argument against breaking up these companies is that they're competing against Chinese companies, which In many cases have the backing of the state and there's there's no limit to their monopolistic practices. And so if these are global companies, should there be different rules when it comes to monopoly now than there were, you know, back in the 19th century. Yeah. Or the 20th? Yeah, that is the argument. So you know, kind of goes like this. If you break up Facebook or make fix books, life difficulty the Chinese will take over. It's kind of a national champion like argument. So we have to have our guys. Um I don't find it convincing at all. Last time we heard that kind of argument was when Japan was the all great mighty power that was going to take over everything in America. And they said it so you can't break up the tea and you can't break up IBM. I think we've had a better track record. Forcing American companies to be competitive. It's not breaking them up, at least putting him under heavy scrutiny like Microsoft and hoping a new generation arises. So yeah, I think that's a pretty lame excuse not to enforce the law that put it that way. So what do you think is going to come out of this? You know, I think from what I've heard there was some documents that were coming out of this that nobody has seen. And I think they put more pressure on the administration and also the states to file complaints. I would not be surprised if Google ends up on the receiving end of an antitrust complaint before November. And after this hearing, I wonder of Facebook's gonna get 12 or whether that's going to be something that the election decides. But, yes, I think it adds to the pressure to file actual cases as opposed to talking about it.

July Mailbag with Jason Moser
"The. Multiple answers I'm out Southwick and I'm joined, is always by broke camp. Personal Finance expert here at the Motley Fool. Hey, BRO, well! Hello Alison. It's the July mailbag where we answer your questions and this month it's with the help of multiple analyst Jason Moser. Should you buy a house now? What is modern portfolio theory and also here Jason's thoughts on a lot of stocks all that and more on this week's episode of Molly fully answers. Jason thanks coming back. you know I mean i. told you you invite me. I'M GONNA. Be here every single time. Thanks for having me back. I mean we appreciate it because we know you're a busy man, and so we do appreciate that you carve out time for us in our little show, don't. Always always make time for those important people in my life rule number one make time for allison and Bro I love. It sounds like a good one to me. Everybody wins. All right well, I guess we should just get into it, so the first question comes from Darren I've subscribed to the full for over a year and I'm really pleased with the service. I would like to know your thoughts about my holdings in Shop Affi- I've bought several times over the last three years, and it's now over thirty five percent of my portfolio and I. Don't know if I should continue holding or trimmed down. What would you advise a good problem to have I was gonna say that exact same thing? That's a good problem have? In a very glad, you have subscribed to our services in your really pleased. That's that's what we aim to to do. We aim to please help you make money and so yeah. This is one of those situations that we will find ourselves in from time to time as investors. A nice problem to have but something you do need to address at some point because it is going to be a little bit different for everybody. In so coming from the perspective of I, also own shop, a Fi stock in it's it's a wonderful investment. It certainly is taking up a bigger. Part of my portfolio a not at thirty five percent where you are. I think for me. It really does boil down to. That sleeping at night test in other words, you need to be able to go to sleep at night without worrying about this kind of stuff, and if you feel like shop, a Fi represents too much. Of your portfolio if you feel like you're overly allocated their, then, you may need to consider pulling it back a little, but now I mean it's. It's I think it's always important. Note you know. It's a big difference between building up a position buying a position to make this size to make this type of allocation in your portfolio. It's another thing entirely to have position grow into beat into becoming that size i. mean that that is that is in a little bit of a different dynamic there, so people all the different ways, some sometimes folks will, they will just sort of looking at it from the house money, concept or you. You just sell enough shares to recoup your initial investment, and then you let the rest of it go. Some people are perfectly fine with thirty five percent. Some people are not. They want a pair back so i. do think you need to kind of figure out what helps you sleep at night I do think that shop by a great business. I think the biggest risk in only shop, if I right now is valuation, just because it's dominating, it's space, but it's not making any money yet, and it's probably going to be a little while until they do so that valuation risk is there, but ultimately yeah I think determine. Where you feel most comfortable with it, and if you feel like you need to put a little bit of that money off the table, and he thirty five percents a lot, certainly very understandable. If they've said something you need to do if you do decide to pair it back a little bit. You've made multiple purchases, so you can identify the shares to sell to manage the tax consequence if this isn't a brokerage account and not an IRA. All right next question comes from Steven. If you are forced into unemployment, you are paying federal income taxes on unemployment payments are not contributing to social security nor to Medicare. How does this affect your future calculation of social security benefits and can one contribute to the social security fund during unemployment to mitigate any adverse effects on benefits, it is a little bit adding insult to injury, but you do owe federal income taxes on your unemployment benefits, and if your state charges has a state income tax, you probably have to pay state tax on that, although there are a handful of states that exempt unemployment benefits, so that's good news. And by the way you, you could have taxes withheld from your unemployment benefits you file. This form called form w four V. if you want, they withhold ten percent, or you can do quarterly estimated payments if you wanNA avoid that big tax bill at the end of the year, but if you're strapped for cash is probably just better to get the money now worried about your taxes later Eh. Stephen notes out. You do not pay payroll taxes. Those are the things that go into social security and Medicare so. So. It could result in a lower social security benefit, however, keep in mind that social security is based on your thirty five highest earning years, so if you enter the workforce at say twenty two and you work until you're mid to late sixties. That's more than forty years where the working so hopefully. If you miss out, if this year is not so good somewhere among those other forty, five or so years, you've had thirty five really good year so that this year won't be that big of a deal. So it probably will be okay. And then to address the last question. Unfortunately, no, you cannot make voluntary contributions to social security. There is at least one academic working paper out there. That suggested that people could buy into social security by like extra credits as opposed to contributing to your 401k, but so far that has not been passed by Congress I had an ex. Question comes from Sam. I heard to stocks discussed on another full podcast. When I read articles about them, it mentions they are thinly traded. I have two questions one I'm sure my position would still be quite small so I think I'd still be able to get in and out, but are there other things I should think about when it's a thinly traded stock and question number two. Is there a certain amount of? Daily volume you like to look for when considering a stock foreign investment. What volume do you want to see to not be? Quote thinly traded stock. Yes very good question in thinly traded stock just refers to the either the amount of shares or the dollar volume of shares that would trade on any given. Market Day and so. The. Thinly traded stock. The the problem is that you may not necessarily able to buy and or sell at the prices. You necessarily think you might be able to in other words when you look at a stock's price and you're looking through the. What what's going on throughout the day on the market, you'll see that did ask spread, which is essentially the bid. Ask spread is it's what someone's willing to pay for the stock versus what someone is asking to be paid for the stock? Because you know you have a buyer and a seller on on in every transaction they're. Normally most cases, these business business bread is very tiny, the couple of pennies maybe for most stocks because they're. They're heavily traded right there. There are plenty of dollar volume. But there are a lot of smaller companies small caps in particular in in you know a micro cap, specifically that don't necessarily meet these kinds of thresholds, and so you definitely have to be aware of that now I'll go back in time just a little bit, too. When we were running the service here at the fool called million dollar portfolios Roman Romani portfolio that we help manage members, and it was never really a problem, but we did have a condition in there. We were always looking for at least ten million dollars in average. Trading volume total daily volume now understand I'm not saying the number of shares saying the amount of money so basically shares times price, but we're always looking for at least ten million dollars. That wasn't set in stone it. It was an idea for us. It wasn't ever really a problem because we had a very diversified portfolio with a number of different types of companies, but when you're looking for smaller companies, you would've just keep that in mind that did ask. Spread is is something that just because it says the stock is twenty dollars. That doesn't necessarily mean you'll pay twenty dollars if there is a a big spread there between the bid, and the ask in so I think whenever you're considering stocks that have any lighter trading volume or thinly traded stock. Just be sure to use limit orders. Limit Orders of let us stipulate the price that you are willing to pay for or that you're willing to. To accept a if you're selling a limit, order is just a really good way to protect yourself from any unwanted surprise thinly traded stocks. You might not always necessarily get them when you want them, so you might have to lead that limited are in there for a little while, but but a limit order is a great way to protect you from any unwanted surprises. Next question comes from Randall. I'm in my late thirties now, but earlier in my life. I was very very bad with my money. Collection Calls Welfare and bankruptcy or not strangers to me. I've been at the bottom then I met the love of my life, and she convinced me to turn things around ten, and a half years later and I have done a complete one eighty, I took control of our finances rebuilt my credit and started investing and listening to all you find folks all. I opened it investing account with the goal of saving and building enough a down payment on a home. I'm happy to say we've now reached that goal. I recently sold at a profit because I didn't want that. Money tied up in the market. If we are close to needing it for a house, but now that we're here, I'm not sure what to do. We currently rent a basement apartment and our neighbors general living situation are less than ideal to put it mildly. So, we're champing at the bit to jump into the housing market that being said the experts have been calling for a drop in the housing market for a while, and that was before the pandemic hit now I'm worried that if we buy right away a year or two or three from now, interest rates will spike, and we could be put in a difficult situation. I live near Toronto. Canada or the housing market is already highly inflated in relation to the rest of the country should I be worried? While Randall first of all congrats on turning your financial life around love hearing success stories like that so good job on that. So I'll start with my standard answer with the rent versus buy decision, and that is just pull up spreadsheet and compare the all in cost of renting, including what you could earn on the money that use for down payment versus the all in cost of buying including the opportunity cost of putting down payment as opposed to having invested as well as insurance and taxes and maintenance, and all that stuff and project, where you might be in five to ten years based on various scenarios on what happens to stocks, if you. Rent an invest the down payment versus what happens to? What you'd look like depending on where home prices go. Generally speaking. If mortgage rates go up, that could way down on real estate prices we did see mortgage rates. Go Up for a bit a few years ago, but the housing market did find, but you could certainly envision a scenario where rates went much much higher, making houses, much less affordable and prices would have to adjust. But I don't expect that to happen anytime soon. I think we're. GonNa have low rates for awhile, but beyond that I don't know I've given up trying to predict where interest rates are going or even paying attention to people who try to predict where interest rates are going, so who knows? That said since you live in Canada. I thought I'd check. In where rates are these days and I and I got a brief reminder that things are actually different in Canada so I did a little bit of research. And then realize I had reach out to someone who knows, I reached out to Canadian Motley fool analysts Jim Gillies, and he had some thoughts so first of all just for you non-canadians out there. It is really different so in America. We get this thirty year mortgage than we have the same payment for thirty years. It's fixed. They don't have that in Canada. What's the most common is a twenty five year? But only the first few years or fixed. And then adjusts so in that context you can understand why Randall is worried about interest rates going up because over the next depending on which alone he gets the most popular is a five year fixed, and then you basically have to go get a new loan probably. So that put that in context, a little more, but also Toronto, really is crazy expensive. Vs from the end of last year that put it as the most overvalued real estate market in the world behind Munich. As Jim pointed out in our call here in the US we had our housing peak in two, thousand, six, two, thousand seven, and then we had what he called a reset, which is basically prices came down significantly candidate and have that slight downturn at home prices, but then they just kept on going up, so it really is different there, so when Jim explain all this to me, the difference in mortgages and the difference in home prices. Frankly he was inclined to say to this guy. You Might WanNa rent for while more and see what happens, but he also had the good advice of okay. What if you buy in prices? Come Down Fifteen percent twenty percent. What if they come down to a point where he upside down? You owe more than the home is worth. Are you okay with that? If. You're okay with that. Maybe it's okay to do that. But it certainly sounds like dicey situation than if someone were telling me like I'm thinking of do this in Dubuque Iowa or something like that. couple of other differences. In case you're curious about Canada in the US. Your mortgage is portable in Canada south. You Buy A. Get the five year mortgage, but then move get to take the mortgage with you for the next house and interest is not tax deductible. US Look at you, Robert, broke? Camp Can Canadian real estate experts there you go. Next! Question comes from Chris. I was on twitter the other day and saw that one of your contributors Brian Feroldi tweeted that he doesn't believe in a long list of technical trading terms and then modern portfolio theory. Can you help me understand what not believing an MP? T with mean this? He believed that diversification doesn't reduce risk. Also every financial adviser I've ever talked to his preached empty, so I would love to hear the counterargument. Jason you're not Brian for all the. Question I am not Brian for all the do get the talk of Brian Pretty good bit though. I I must admit I. Don't know what he said here in regard to modern portfolio theory and all of these technical trading arms. But I think I can take a guess. Generally speaking I agree with them, and I think you could sit there and look up the portfolio theory in you know read about it as much as you want. Just go to google modern portfolio theory, and you can dig right in there, but in a nutshell ultimately, what modern portfolio theory is the intention behind it? It's meant to reduce risk while maximizing returns. It assumes that investors don't like risk. They prefer less risky portfolios to riskier ones in order to achieve a certain level of return so right there. I kind of kind of lost me right there because I don't believe that every ever investors risk averse I think some investors have a very. Healthy, appetite for risk, and frankly I would say I got a pretty high tolerance for risk when it comes to investing, made it just because of what I do for a living but I. You know to me I like having that trade off least unhappy. Happy to take some risks there. If I feel like that upside, it's going to be potentially worth. So with modern portfolio theory, it introduces a lot of fancy math in the form of variances and correlations in order to come up with this. Quantifiable, investing strategy that ultimately helps reduce risk while allowing the investor to achieve. Certain returns in. Maybe it works for some not I'm not dismissing it personally I. Don't use it, I don't personally subscribe to it I. Don't need it. I think honestly for us. In a really believe it's extends to to most people in our full universe is that is individual investors I think a more meaningful way to reduce risk. is to just extend your timeline like invest longer. So like Tom Gardner said a number of years back when we were. Working on Motley, fool one basically take your take the time line that you think you want to own any individual stocks you buy shares of starbucks and I plan on owning it for you know five years. Okay, we'll just double it. Cloning it for ten in all of a sudden right there. You've given yourself more time. Time is one of the big advantages we have is individual investors. Money managers don't have that advantage, Wall Street done generally handed abandoned, either, but if you can be patient and just invest in good businesses. That risk really starts to come down over time. There are plenty of studies out there. That show that risk comes down the longer you hold onto those stocks, which into me, just renders modern portfolio, theory, more or less not useful mean on things, not useful for everybody, but it's not useful for me and based on Chris. Question It sounds like a agree with what Brian was saying there. We think I'll add to. That is I agree that risk is really not that much of a consideration if you are saving for retirement. But once you are in retirement man, and just say like you know what the market's not I'm going to extend my time highs in ten years. Because you need to spend money in that situation, I think diversification is important. It's important to have assets that don't always move the same direction at the same time. For some fools. That's just as simple as keeping any money need the next five years in cash, so you're right out any ups and downs, and that can be fine. But I. do think it makes sense to have. A mix of investment so that right now, technology stocks are doing very well, and we hope that continues to do well, but we remember was that happened in two thousand from two thousand to two, and there were down for quite a while anyone who retired in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, or so it was very happy to have some small caps value maybe a. A little international, some reits to ride out the storm Yeah I think we talk about that often like recognizing where you are as an investor in life, are you in the grow your wealth stage, or are you in the protector stage, because they are two very different strategies, and we're all hopefully going to be in both of them at one point or another right? I personally and still on the grow your wealth stage I. Think we all probably are, but you will at some point get to where you need to focus on protecting the wealth that you've made so that you can then have that money to spend, and that definitely will dictate your investment strategy things that you're invested in and whatnot. Generally speaking I do like the idea for people who are just risk averse and have this notion that investing is just too risky. I mean the fact of the matter is not investing as far away greater risk like not investing. You will never grow your money if you don't the best, so if if if risk is a problem, I think generally speaking. Along the lines of diversification idea that that bros. talking about him, he just invest in invest in SNP index fund is something that just follows the progress and p. you know you're going to be participating in and if you look at that over the over the stretch of time, their five ten twenty thirty years, I mean that trend does go one way. It, but clearly the older you get, the more you need to start focusing on protecting your wealth, and that will change the way you view things. Right next question comes from Alex from Alexandria if I buy Muny bonds from another state in my IRA. Is it still taxable and Alexander with who we have a bond on and we do have a bunch. I know Alex up super excited about having a bunch on in Alexandria to I can't believe I haven't been there. It's like two miles from my house, but we still haven't been oh i. know because there's a global pandemic going on and we. saw. Alyx if we buy me bonds from another state in my IRA is still taxable. Bro, help him out or her or so Muny Barnes. People Invest Immunity bonds because they're free of federal taxes and in many cases. If you're buying bonds issued by the place you live, they might be free of state and local taxes, so that can be doubly triply tax free. That's why people buy 'em. There are some times, however that if you own immune, abound outside of an IRA. Pay Taxes and this surprises some people. There's something called the minimum tax. If you buy immunity bond at a discount, and then it matures at par. If you buy a distress, Muny bond for like you put an eight thousand dollars, and you sell it later for ten thousand dollars as a capital gain. You'll be taxed on that. So, there are some times when you would pay taxes on media. Now, Alex is asking what if it's an IRA? Do I have to worry about paying tax interest. If it comes from another state and the answer is no, you won't have to worry about that. The only thing I would say is. Generally speaking immune bond already has built in tax advantages, so you wouldn't keep it in an IRA, unless there's the example of the stuff I was saying previously like for. It's one of those exceptions when him UNIBOND would result in taxes than you might WanNa keep it an IRA, but generally speaking. If you're going to buy Muny Bond, keep it out of an IRA. Next question comes from Boone. I just did my first. Roth conversion and looked at that old account for the first time in. There was the expected dividend producing fund I remembered, but there was a stock chesapeake energy that I had completely forgotten about since I purchased the stock in two thousand, six fifteen. It's down way down like eight point five percent off the purchase price. What should I do with it now? It's in a tax deferred accounts so I. Don't think the loss is realized until I. Start to pull money out of the account and that might not. Not Be for fifteen years current value of all my shares will be about one percent of the value of the account after the conversion. Do I sell in the very little value? I had left and depend on E. Trade to keep up with lost for me or should I hold on based on the slim chance. The stock will be worth more in the next ten years. Oil Stocks do act unusually on occasion, only oil stocks. Stock everything else makes that usually. Chesapeake has been really. Interesting Story to follow and frankly. I don't I. Don't know that I would look at it today. As a business that I'd WANNA own so typically if I. You know I think it was yet idea. Didn't sound like a position are actively building united investment didn't work out. I mean that that happens to all of us. We don't get them all right. We have a philosophy here at the full. A lot of do we like to? Water flowers and pull the weeds, and that's just a nice way of saying. Add to our winners in to get rid of losers in. This I think is more than likely slated to continue being a loser I mean. Chesapeake has lost a lot of value. In it does sound like based on when you purchased this, these is absolutely busted I mean. There there are all sorts of reasons to sell one of them is if you thesis busted and the reason why you invest in the company is is no longer the case, and I would he probably is the case with Chesapeake so to me like you know, you could sit there and let it go, but but what's the goal trying to get back to even, or are you trying to get back a couple of bucks for me a lot of times? I'll I'll take a little opportunity here and there to just go ahead and pull those weeds sell it. Be Done with it. In even though it's just unique out a little bit value there, you can still take that money and do something more productive with it. So. Yeah T to me. I can't tell you to buy or sell obviously, but I can certainly understand. Selling in this case, but I you know. As as oil and natural gas energy can can turn around. This is going to be one that has a lot of headwinds in in. You might be waiting a very long time to to get any of this money back. I point out here that I it seems that maybe boone has a slight misunderstanding of how taxes in aries work because he talked about realizing the loss when he takes the money out and trade keeping track of the loss for him, it sounds to me that he thinks that he can write the loss off whence he takes the money out. That may not be the case, but just to be clear. One of the great benefits of an IRA is you don't pay taxes on the gains, interest and dividends from year to year. But. One of the drawbacks is. You can't take a capital loss on that as well so there's really no no way to benefit on your tax return from this loss. Next question comes from Benjamin. You recommend seeing a fee. Only financial adviser for check in every so often I know there is the Garrett planning network and others to help find an advisor. But what questions do you ask? And what answers do you listen for when trying to find one that is worth his or her one hundred fifty to two hundred fifty per hour. So I would say start first with asking yourself some questions. What are you looking for? You could go for the whole launch. Lada where someone is managing your money analyzing retirement plan helping new save and a five twenty nine. Maybe even doing your taxes with some financial planners do help with the state planning, or are you looking for something more targeted? You just want advice about am I saving enough for retirement, or are you close to retirement? You're like I just WanNa make sure that I'm doing right when terms like choosing my Medicare plan and claiming social security at the right time, so first of all just be very clear of what you're looking for. Then if it involves investments in any way, you WanNa, make sure that you find someone who is at least in the general same area philosophically and I say this, because many financial planners are hardcore index. And if you come to them as a motley fool, listener member with a lot of individual stocks. They may say okay. I'll give you some general asset allocation guidance, or they'll say I don't care if you like to pick. Stocks are not my advises, sell the stocks and go to index funds, so you want to make sure that if you're gonNA, ask for any sort of investment. Advice that you wanna find someone who's someone somewhat at least aligned for what you're looking for. Once, you've got that then. Just asked some of the typical stuff. You might expect so credentials certified financial planner. Are they a CPA either their personal financial specialist. How long they've been in the business. There are lots of people who. have not been in the business very long. Even though they're not young people, a lot of people choose financial planning as a second career, which I think is great, but just because someone may be look like they're in their forties or fifties. Sixties doesn't mean they've been in the business that long, and you WANNA. See if they've worked with someone like you right so if you have. Maybe. You have a large amount of wealth large income huge portfolio. You WanNa make sure that they have experienced with dealing with those issues, but on the flip side to if if you have, are you know middle income, decent size portfolio, but nothing too complicated. You don't WanNa. Go to someone who's used to dealing with someone who's wealthier partially because those people charge a lot more. You want to find someone who's kind of a little more lined up with what you're doing. Then make appointments with three folks. All of them will do get do free. Get acquainted means, and you're just looking for someone who you feel comfortable with. Since, you mentioned Garrett Big Fan of the Gary Planning Network and other is is not for the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers. But Garrett on their website has a how to choose an adviser section. Just Google attitude visor Garrett Planet Network has a great chapter from a dummies book that they wrote about how to choose adviser, and they have a good questionnaire that you can print out in US asking lots of good questions of financial planner. It's tough. Choosing a financial planner like my mom just went through that Bro! Is You know and she didn't really have a lot of options in Boise Idaho. Maybe two and one of them, she I never called her back, and never got back her, and the other one was just so busy just so busy, and just she just never. It's it can be rough. Finding a financial planner can be I. Think what we'll see is one of the consequences of this. Of the coronavirus pandemic. Just, like we are all used to working from home, many financial advisors and financial planners an now working from home. So in what they're doing is they're becoming licensed in more states. So, if you are more comfortable, working with someone over zoom remotely I think you don't have to stick with someone in your area. You can go beyond your locations, but you know some people don't feel comfortable that if if they're going to have someone managing their life savings, they want to be able to meet them in person. That's just a personal choice. All right next question comes from twitter. Is that right from sully what I hear? Okay? I just listened to the episode mentioning Your Weakness Two. Shopping carts and Tj, Maxx that me or you Jason. Accused me. Thoughts on the stock. If I had a war on Amazon, basket would be Costco TJ maxx Home Depot tractor supply. What would be your basket against online retail? That's funny. Well okay, listen I wouldn't have basket against online retail, because online retails where it's at. The whole idea. The whole idea behind the basket approaches to find a long term trend that you feel like the world is headed toward and so the war on cash basket, for example that was always one about people using cash war, traffic payments now with that said I get the spirit of the question some going to answer it because I do like some of these ideas. And I I would definitely include Costco in their in Home Depot's well. Home Depot gets a lot of my money. Doesn't, but they have a very loyal fan base of customers that just are happy to renew year in year out. So I love those membership models there, so costco and a Home Depot for sure you know I'm going to give a little shout at my wife Robin I. Know that she would approve of my adding target to the mixer. She hasn't been raving about targets APP and ordering on the APP the able to go to the store. Just pick it up right there I've talked with Ron Gross on more than one occasion about target and how this really has. Become a twenty first century resale right they're doing. They're doing everything online and in physical stores. What they call Alma Channel and then my fourth and I'm GONNA. Take this. You probably aren't expecting this when Alison. I'm GonNa Shock and all you. I'm ready. I'm ready Alta. We're going. Make up my I know my daughter's love. It ugly ugly Mug like this. What do I know about makeup? Tell you what. Get! A House with two daughters and a wife. That's what I know about make. There's a lot of it in an Ulta is a really really good business. They actually have a very nice diversified revenue stream. They've got the salon a`dynamic of the business which encourages people to go there they do have an online business. They have an augmented reality function there at where you can actually like. Try things on makeup to see how it looks. Mary Dillon just a phenomenal other adults of that's my fourth, their Ulta but they I appreciate the spirit of the question I like the idea I'm not saying this is the basket. I'm not tracking this basket in a not a not backing this basket, but in the spirit of the question if I had to develop. A basket, such as this one I think it'd go with those four. Yeah, I mean I guess you just have to think about what retail out there is something that you would still physically go to. Because the actual retail experience is being in the space is the experience and what you're there for? And I know I mean before Corona virus we I would go to target and just just couldn't believe how much money I had spent from walking through a few of the aisles. TJ Max is just a phenomenal business I mean what they've done through the years. Is really capitalized on the nature of the business, the advantage they have in that treasure hunt kind of nature like you go to TJ Max, maybe not necessarily looking for something, and then you end up finding a lot of things, and it can be a little bit lumping at times, but but generally speaking like management's a very good job of running that business, and they know how to exploit the advantage of experience. I think they're online game. Though I think they could probably get something going with online, and they just have not have not yet and so I. Haven't since Corona Virus for example. I haven't spent a single dollar there, but I continue to still shop at. Home Depot I. Think Yeah! We still shopping at home depot because we're doing. You know you gotta buy lumber somewhere. And I know my grandparents out in my my inlaws out in rural Virginia. They love tractor supply store, but that's not. That's not in where we live, but. Still New deck at the house there allison. I mean you, can you see? A big exposed beam behind me and some drywall work that needs to happen. Have lots of drywall work that needs to happen now though. Yeah Anyway get to that. All right next question comes from Matthew. I got married to my amazing wife nine days ago in a small Kobe nineteen wedding in our front yard after we postponed it from its original date in April all. It was definitely different, but still very special. My question is in relation to this wonderful event. My salary has been at a level that has allowed me to fund a roth. Ira I love the optionality of it, but after marrying my bad ass, wife are combined. Salaries are now over the limit that would allow me to fund the Roth. IRA does this affect occur immediately? Do I need to now open up a traditional. IRA and begin funding it or do I have until the end of the year. Matthew wants a Roth Bachelor party one last. Well Matthew I have bad news. When it comes to most things in taxes, your status and your age and things like that depends on where you are on the last day of the year, said if you're married on the last day of the year, you were considered married for the whole year. So that means if you contributed started contributing to a Roth IRA for twenty twenty. You need to call up your brokerage. Firm and re characterize that as a traditional. Now don't have any other traditional IRA, as it's very easy to do the back door, Ross which we've talked about before you can just google it or even when you call the brokerage, just say I want to do the backdoor. Roth and they'll tell you what to do. If, you have other traditional IRA as you can still do. It just becomes more complicated and you'll probably pay more taxes. So you, but you may not be totally out of luck and I should say that's only if you have a traditional IRA doesn't matter if your wife has traditional areas. One exception by the way of of what I just said. In terms of tax status and last day of the year is distributions from retirement accounts before it's age fifty nine and a half, you actually have to be age fifty nine and a half to avoid that ten percent early distribution penalty, unless some of the many exceptions that are out there exist. Right next question comes from Warren Warren Buffett. Maybe I don't know that's why I was thinking. He's asking about coq, so maybe maybe. Once James Opinion on coke. By? Or hold? Wants to now. I'd give buffet night give. Kiesel Warren of the same advice and I would say. For some I'm not buying it. Not Buying it I'm not holding it if I own it. I guess that means sell it. Even Atlanta Georgia person like you i. feel like it's almost sacrilege. I am pretty close to probably not being ever even invited back. But the facts are the facts. Okay, I mean you do have to look at the stock itself has been ain't bad stockton for the last five years. I mean I do understand why when you look at it what they do, I mean they have. Four hundred master brands, and less than fifty percent of them are the big global brands that are actually responsible for almost all of their revenue when I say almost only ninety eight percent, so it's a business. It's very reliant on on. You know a small portfolio of really successful grants. The problem is now. We've always talked about cocoa beans such a great distribution story and that's true. They've got a distribution network. It's just phenomenal, but the problem is now. They're what they're distributing is is being seen as not so good for you in so you're seeing them. Have it into to essentially pivot away from what you know brought them all of the success for all these years. Years in soda and that that's not going to change I. Mean you're always GonNa have people to drink soda? People are not to drinking as much soda going forward in the numbers of just kind of the kind of shown that through that through the quarters in the years of Coca, Cola and Pepsi Pepsi. Has the salty snacks division, which I've always been very. Impressed by I, mean I love a good Cheeto, and so I mean anytime you can throw a bag of those cheetos in my Patriot Amok GonNa, turn it their coq. Interrupting, but I think this is also very important point. You tried the Jalapeno White Cheddar crunchy cheetos. The White Shit or so. I've tried to Jalapeno ones but I've not seen the white Cheddar White Cheddar Jalapeno crunchy cheetos. Don't get the puffy. The poofy ones are not as good, but the crunchy white Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetahs. them by them. They're amazing. I have to back. Pain you. I'll get those next time. I promise I, mean Eh. One. crunchy wants the puffy ones, so that people won't you're not? You're not seeing poopie. Who using poofy Joe Copy? We'll be Coca doesn't have that dynamic of their business. They don't have that dynamic to their business, and they've suffered from that Pepsi's Pepsi's outperform coca-cola over the last several years. It's not safe. Pepsi or coke get it back. I'm sure they probably can. But what I am saying is I think there are a lot of better ideas out there, and so I wouldn't be putting new money into Coca Cola and frankly if I did own it. I probably would look at selling it and you know if you've got a beverage company, maybe own starbucks. It seems like the science coming out in support of coffee, right? It's coming and telling you that these sodas. They're gonNA. Make you fat. Coffee, it could extend your life. It could help you live longer. SMART Mexican looking this a starbucks as well is. That sounds like study from the copy roasters of America. Do! Something that Chris Hill sent me the other day. that. We sleep at night. I'm glad I've been drinking coffee as long as I have God knows what I would look like otherwise. You're a good looking man. Rick. good-looking next question comes from. A. I'm trying to save money for my kid's College. Fund while the five nine is a great option. I'm limited to investing in mutual funds, which means at best I'm going to get what the market gets assuming I do some sort of low cost index fund and I be a capital F. Fool investor have been doing much better than the market in the last three years of being a member of. Of Stock Advisor Enroll breakers, even during this pandemic mess by listening to every full podcast and following David and Tom's and yours and every one else's in the full universe. My portfolio of about one hundred stocks is up here today. Thirty percent to the market's down five percent as of day as of today weighed down by three sluggish five to nine plants that are also down five percent each. I feel like throwing away money by using the five to nine, and not being allowed to select my own great companies in which to invest. What's more, my understanding is that the five to nine does not count as an asset for the kid when applying for student aid, but the coverdale does. So I come to you with a simple question. Can I have my cake and eat it, too? What if I wanted to use the coverdell to buy individual stocks? Until the child is nearing college? At which point I then converted to a five to nine. This allows me to get better returns and avoid it being an asset for financial aid and get the favorable tax benefit. So, chose this question, because first of all Dune does a good job explaining the benefits of the coverdell over the five twenty nine, you can buy individual stocks. You can buy and sell them all day long. We recommend that, but you can. Whereas with the five twenty nine, you can only make two changes to the investments a year, and it's all mutual funds. So. That's you did a good job of explaining that. I will point out with the coverdell. It's gotta low contribution limit of only two thousand dollars a year, so for some people save more for college, but they can max out to cover it out, but then put the rest in a five twenty nine. One thing that doomed does not have quite right. Is The financial aid treatment the financial aid treatment? Coverdale's and five twenty nine is identical. They're treated as assets of the parent, not the kid that is favourable from a financial aid perspective. It's not negligible doesn't mean it doesn't have any effect on financial aid, but it's better than an asset that is owned. By the kid. He can. Transfer money from the Coverdell to the five twenty nine. If for some reason, he decides to do that, but you can't transfer it. The other way around so were convinced to try out the covered. You have money in a five twenty nine. You can't move it from the five twenty nine. To the coverdale. What other interesting thing that he pointed out is that he is doing very well with his investments, and he owns about one hundred stocks. We get this question a lot. Either on the show, or on the full live that we run every day for members of full services, and that is how many stocks should I own, and if I owned too many are not just owning index fund watering down my returns, but here's an example if someone owns a one hundred stocks is still crushing the market. Idol last question comes from Cameron thoughts on the valuation of Stone Co in light of the corona virus for a fragile country like Brazil. This could be the tipping point after so many other headwinds. But how does that affect stone? coz Business Jason I. Don't even know what Stone Co is. What is still business? Yes, don't Coz a payments company that's focused on Latin American markets in Brazil and particular in so I guess it could be. Draw you can draw a parallel to to a with square through pay pal at, but generally speaking I mean it's payments. Company focused on Latin America. Primarily Brazil. Is the big money making market kind of like Marco Libra, they're. In I, I, it's a it's. A NEAT opportunity, gained a lot of headline recently, when and it was, it was seen that Berkshire hathaway. Warren Buffett's company Berkshire hathaway taken a five percent position in the company, which is pretty considerable i. Think in the near term. You have to acknowledge the fact that. They're gonNA, be some real headwinds in in Brazil particularly because of the pandemic I mean. The flip side of that is role in same boat kind of in that regard. The entire world is dealing with it, so it's not specifically you know it's. It's not particular to one economy or one country some. To get hit harder than others I, do feel like Brazil. Be at a place where they can recover from this given You know some of the other businesses in the area. I mean that that that I think is. Who knows ultimately how? That's GONNA shake, but generally speaking. I think the move away from cash towards cashless. Transactions in and financial software that's not stopping if anything, this hastens that which which is what I think, Cameron's talking about there and for a company like stone. Co, neither are other companies in the space pags bureau in roquetas libra to but you know moving money around is a big big market opportunity, and there's nothing that says they won't be able to expand well beyond the Latin American markets, too, so I I'd say cautiously optimistic I mean I
Tokyo raises Covid-19 alert to highest amid spike in cases
"In Zurich Seven, twenty, two here in London Tokyo has raised its corona virus level to its highest in response to the number of cases, spiking the city's governor held a news conference, in which he held aloft a red and orange card to colors, which indicate the seriousness of the threat, but I'll Tokyo Bureau chief Wilson joins me now with more welcome back view now I'm tell us what's happening where you are. Yeah. That's right Governor Koi K. Yesterday. raise the level to the highest level to read I. Think for most people in Tokyo. It's very difficult to interpret. It's a really symbolic system of guidelines that really don't. They have no binding force I think what people are really looking at is how the infection numbers doing and the news just coming in now they'll be two hundred eighty around two hundred and eighty record to stay, which would actually be a record for Tokyo. So I think that's the number that people will be looking at I. Think the governor. Qweik's alert system has has honestly not been that helpful. Those people don't quite understand what it means. The guidelines came out in May originally. When when the state emergency was lifted, they were revised in June and it's partly to do with the shift in in in how the virus is is affecting people now the first wave of ours with affecting more older people this time it's younger people asymmetric. And what governor? Governor quick as saying what we really need to focus on now is. Can the health system coke? So that's what these guidelines are referring to it. Saying is the health system on depression, which it seems that it is, and she said that the trying to secure I think nearly three thousand. That's people who have mild symptoms ever. Do we know where this the spread of the disease is coming from? You mentioned the fact that it is young people now who are turning up with positive tests. Yeah I mean they've certainly be mentioning a lot about nightlife small balls. They been people working ball state. They've been co opted to making video. Saying this is how we're going to do business from now on. We're not drinking from the same bottle. I mean the mind boggles. That was going on anyway, but they've said that going to. Enforce these. Practices just so that customers surprise and there's been a cluster in certain areas of Tokyo. It's not just Tokyo. The areas around Tokyo that have. Always had a similar kind of. Trajectory for the virus Kinda go fight Chiba. And also all soccer in the fall west of Japan, so that that's one area, but they're also actually rather love untraceable infections that something I know, the Governor Koi case worried about so that's why she she said situation she she's referred to severe, and European, wouldn't be considered that the compared to numbers in Europe, but certainly hair it's it's considered pretty bad at the moment. No businesses as far as I can gather, have been asked to close and what you described. There are people not sharing bottles does sound rather. Astonishing, giving the level of sort of lockdown at the rest of the world is experiencing and still is experiencing. Is there a sense that now? The the the authorities in Tokyo are really getting in control of this thing, or is that still a sense is Estela gap between what should be done or anything? People think should be done what people are actually doing. Well. I mean there's always been this issue. That nothing is `binding in Intercon? It's always about advising people cautioning them asking them and what's happened. Is Japan that people are quite happy to do that? We don't see any of this problem with people refusing to end loss, there's not that people are extremely cautious. The the the sharing of book was I'm sure rating most people here as well so I think people have really really got hold of the situation. You know as a group among saying Tokyo if you look around everyone. The for example, people are very cautious to kind of being built in now. Kids about school, but they're all very socially distance wearing masks so that there is already built in I. Think you know what goes what happens from now is it's really difficult to predict because governor Taylor last month, said you know infections go by fifty a day. We'll have to think about dozing businesses again now. We're already at two hundred and eighty today so clearly. It's not that straightforward. It's a much more. More complex situation you know, how and as I said it's, it's different group of people now because the eysenck domestic, then not needing the hospital beds that were were really ought to pressure in April. When when the when the pandemic was was thought to peaks, actually so it slightly different situation. Now we're now also in a situation and the time when tourism should be really at the heart of what's happening in Japan. We should be in the middle of the Olympics notwithstanding but. The central government has. been trying to boost domestic, tourism. It's come up against some rather understandable opposition hasn't at namely from those who would be receiving visitors from the likes of Tokyo where there. Is this this this outbreak? Absolutely I mean that's a campaign called the go-to travel campaign which the government launched, it was supposed to be August actually that started, but they've brought it forward to twenty second of July which should have been the long weekend that launched the the Olympics. It was supposed to be a holiday weekend. We don't know the Olympics, but we still have the holiday weekend and she. Has Launched his campaign, which will basically encourage people to trouble ever Japan? They'll be heavily subsidized. You've got money back on travel hotels from September. You'll get voucher to spend wherever you go, so it's. It's really encouraging people to move around on the reaction. It'd be very bright, mixed some areas already welcoming it that that very keen to get travelers, but some places. It walked in the north of Japan where they've had no cases. Just said now is not the time, but then don't particularly wanting this to happen, so. It really varies from from prefect prefecture, but I think there's lots of nervousness and I can say that I have traveled a little bit in Japan and the last couple of weeks and I can certainly say that people are not about through to see anyone from Tokyo coming into rural areas at the moment. Even if you're masked up that that very concern Tokyo is, the numbers are much higher than anywhere else and the loss of concerned about people from Tokyo. Particularly traveling around the country, and what is it? Do you think that will reassure people that? There are calls for stronger testing measures and tracing measures to be carried out. Then both like I said that maybe one thing they do is they actually offer free tests? If not reassurance, people you know the to show that these tourists do not have a virus. I think it also shows that the pressure on Shinto be how difficult it will be opened the country up to. International travelers you know all the measurements really hard to persuade people to travel within Japan, so it is difficult, and and you know these number very public, and you know people will see the news today
IRS Announces Taxpayers Can Make Checks Directly Payable To Any Corporation Or Billionaire They Want This Year
"The onion and onion public radio. This is the topical I'm Leslie Price. Mother fucker and we'll be right back. Hey, does anyone know who I talk to about getting my w two? If there's one thing everyone hates. It's doing taxes. However, the Internal Revenue Service recently announced a major change that they're hoping will make it easier this year for taxpayers to file OPR's financial correspondent Marcy Hammond joins me now with more on this marcy. What can you tell us well as lead the? IRS is rolling out a new system that will cut out the middleman so to speak starting this year. Year tax payers are instructed to just make their checks payable to any billionaire they want. It certainly does get rid of a step or two, but what led to the IRS making this change well irs funding has been cut by twenty five percent in the last ten years leaving the agency understaffed and under resourced. It takes a large workforce to get all that money into the pockets of the. The wealthy so from the tax agencies point of view. This change kills two birds with one stone. I spoke with Iras agent Marcia Krieg. Who explained how it works? Sending money to us have become irrelevant wasteful step. The IRS would cash taxpayers checks only for the funds to then be transferred to billionaires in the form of corporate subsidies, tax breaks and money grants for the corporations, but having tax payers. Payers right there. Check directly to Mike Bloomberg. Bill Gates or anyone in the coke family really streamlines that process so tax payers choose which of the nation's richest CEO's. They send their money to to be honest. It doesn't matter any of the five hundred and forty billionaires in the United States will do because your cash is eventually going to end up going to them anyway. However Payments Jeff Bezos. The fastest interesting, and how has it been working out for those who have already filed their taxes this year? Well I spoke to a few taxpayers, and so far they seem to think this new rule just makes sense. It was really easy. I paid my billionaire online turbo tax offered me some suggestions to choose from Howard Schultz Jack. Dorsey I chose the Elon Musk option and with just a click I deposited the money right into one of his. His offshore accounts I went down to H. and R. Block and ended up owing two hundred dollars to mark. Zuckerberg. I thought about fudging the numbers a bit, but facebook probably House on my financial that already in I. Don't WanNa on it. That brings up an interesting point. What if you owe a lot of money and taxes and the time to pay off or to get an extension? Well Billionaires Larry. Page Jamie, Dimon and the Walton family of. Of already set up their own tax, departments offer payment plans to tax payers, but just a warning. The interest rates are very high. It might be your only choice if you can't afford to pay. Just don't try to duck out on paying unlike the IRS, these tycoons wield a lot of power, and they will ruin you. Good advice but marcy I have to ask. This information has been out for a while now and today is tax day it. It seems like all. This information would have been more helpful to our listeners a few weeks even months
SIXTEEN most dramatic Wimbledon moments from the last decade countdown
"Hello everybody. Welcome back to another episode of the passing shot. This weekend would have marked of course women finals weekend, so what better time to reminisce and think about some of the most dramatic moments from the championships over the last decade came I've got my I've got my strawberries and cream of got my joker. Pim's and yeah, you looking. We're GONNA. Do Little little countdown yet. We are got some Robinson's to go with my with Alpo cost today because I can't find the payments to the back of my cupboard somewhere. But yeah, we've decided that actually. We normally debate moments boat. Many movements from Wimbledon over the past decade that we were kind of looking back through them. We all just H is just know enough say we're kind of doing this in teapot Sixteen. Tell you to, but we're just GONNA cut you the first eight day on and see how. So many to kind of two three. I'm also mentioned as well I. May my all whites as well summer, and getting into kind of like getting into the the women, the Wimbledon Spirit and Yes listeners, thanks for facts again in touch this. We put out to ask you. What are some of your dramatic moments from the uniform cade and we really appreciate you getting in touch. Who knows maybe you'll maidment will appear on the list, but yes, we will, of course say caveats. This is our list. This is purely our opinion. We think it's a pretty good list. There are some moments that you will be familiar with, but we think there are some vitamins I feel that have been you know maybe not. You might not be as familiar with, but yeah, let's get. Let's get into it starting a number sixteen in our countdown, and it's one I guess you know for British fans is a very a memorable I will say a fairytale story where we him back to Twenty-six. On its Marcus Willis and His run from you free. Pre would qualify to qualify to the main draw. To play Roger Federer. Is this more of a Fairytale Jolan Peter Cold winning Wimbledon in the film that we discussed on our lots podcast. Possibly say yeah. I feel like made some of our listeners from like ABC's might not even know of this story. They might even have never heard of Marcus Willis. British fans probably happen until two thousand sixteen. And Yeah. He came through the qualifying say. He was ranked down at like seven, hundred and seventy two in the world. Qualified One always marched and qualifying obviously. And then came up against recalled this baron case of I. Think he's Lithuanian in the first round, beat him. which she data alone is kind of pre. Wow, considering his ranking and the disparity between between the t pies and then. Who Does he then face in the second round, nee wombat reporter federal himself say oversee. That was going to be prime on sensical. And I guess teacups, isn't it? It's kind of like Oh. Marcus got through the second round. So annoying. He's paying federal. He could have a had charges against someone else, but on the other side is the actually if he's going to get through to the second round for like probably the only time in his career, he might as well Gad parents on Sundays go play unites the greatest champion. Wounds ever seen. Yeah. I, be the. The second camp I think if I'M GONNA. Go Out I. Want to go out in style and you know what better way to to go out. To have to have? Time, one of the greatest cross players of all time across across from you of from the net I think the story for me remarkable because the the the ingrained image I have in my head of Marcus Willis is. Is actually before this it wasn't. It's not baby. It was he was on like. He was like on a challenge tour event, and he had like a can of coke and a malls Baugh. One of his matches and Clemente to is like I think the commentator coming here. It was basically called him Kaufman for from South Park. and was like is this. Is this guy for real? Is The guy really heavy like? A cat of kind of self drake. Y-, you know tennis by the challenge, Tour and It just shows think it shows you the just the. It was just crazy the way he went from this sort of you know position where he wasn't really kind of know. Yes, he was talented, but I think he was really applying himself. It shows you I think it's a story that shows you that. If you do apply yourself, incredible things can happen and. You know, he went from literally like. Fee, Butts Four coaching is. Club. Thirty pounds of our lessons. To Yes said. Roger Federer, thank you very

EncroChat user experience includes getting owned, going to prison
"I think it was a couple of months ago. Actually that we I bike about this incur chats far network. This is encrypted like modified android foreign. That was marketed to criminals feel like doing their super-secret high end drug deals and stuff they got aren't pretty hard a while ago and wound up actually shutting down, they pushed out notifications to all of their customers, saying. Yeah, don't use our phones anymore. We're just GONNA close turns out. They did get courteous. Courteous earns looks like by French authorities, but the resulting arrests have started, and it's just i. mean this is big. This is amazing. Yeah, this story certainly has gotten bigger and bigger. The more we hear about it, and yet they got well and truly earned by the ranch. it does seem like by had deployed malware out onto the individual phones using that. That to be able to scrape up conversations and photos, a who the other information being exchanged in before it was encrypted before it was sent out over the network and have been doing so for quite some time. Yes, and then the fact that it managed to lost this long. Yeah, because there's been a whole bunch of race and a bunch of groups. Criminals wound up all over Europe through this corporation. In fact, they managed to keep it. kind of under wraps as long as they did is pretty impressive, as well good, good obstacle, but yeah, just a really really interesting story and a close to them. You know some people are asking about the you know. What does it mean to be able to? Do? You know why lawful interested in this manner ride by going out mass compromising age devices. Without the cooperation of the Manufacturer and it's. Interesting comparison to the other Crypto, wars was going on about into encrypt, or you know how adversaries in this case, law enforcement move around the network to be able to go where the daughter is. Who Cares about into their? Own the edge devices, and this is just such a great example of that it is, but I mean the huge irony here is if I were using signal on irs that'd probably would have been most of them would have been fine right well, of course, they yeah that that is kind of funny presumably IOS. Remote sports that you could use the deployment with probably more expensive than whatever it took. EARN CRA CHATTAN and pushed off. Some of the top people, but they wouldn't have got like I. Mean a lot of people are getting a getting arrested here. I actually asked Joe Cox joys been doing great reporting on this in fact, and actually asked him to tell me what he thinks is significant about all of this, and here's what he had to say. I think what's different hair. When it comes to the increase chat operation as opposed to technical investigations by law enforcement is the Shit scale I mean. We're not talking about single dark web marketplace. With some Athens some sellers of cocaine that sort of thing. This was the technical infrastructure for a large chunk of organized crime across continents. We're talking hitman money launderers drug traffickers, basically the real career criminals used this phone service and is very hard to overstate how big of a blow this is to them. People are trying to escape from the countries that in people going to ground. There is going to be likely severe disruption to the bulk drug trade with us. So at yeah, turns out the Anchorage user. Experience is not quite what people signed up for. Some of the arrests have been spectacular I, mean we? There was one where there was. Tons of coke was seized. We've got twelve hundred kilos of math, but probably the one that really caught my eye was actually this news just broke this morning, but Dutch police actually found some shipping containers one of them was set up to be like holding cells, and another one had like a dentist chair in it and bags full of pliers, and it was like a torture chamber, and they even had collected intelligence on who was due to spend some time in this special shipping container. Container and warned them often sent them into hiding, but I mean yeah. It looks like really heavy. Bad Crooks have have all been getting busted here.

Minnesota Attorney General Sues Exxon Over Climate Change
"A growing number of states and cities are asking courts to hold fossil fuel companies accountable for the costs of climate change. Minnesota is the latest state to file a lawsuit like this. The state's Attorney General Keith Ellison claims that Exxon, Mobil the American, Petroleum Institute and Coke Industries strategized to deceive the public about carbon emissions and attorney general joins us now. Welcome Bank you for having me. What evidence do you have? These organizations intentionally deceived the public. Well, you know we have. Documents such as One, stamped proprietary information from Exxon, engineering, which says the CO two concentration. The atmosphere has increased in the rate of Co. two release from ANTHRO GENYK sources appears to be doubling every fifteen years. The most widely held theory is that the increase is due to fossil fuel combustion, and that document was from when that document was from October. Sixteen nineteen seventy nine. Th that's so. They knew in seventy nine, and then they lied about it actually they produced propaganda. Woods, which essentially said things like who told you the earth is warming chicken little? And then other ones, the most serious problem with catastrophic global warming is that it may not be true. They directly contradicted what their research around. We can prove that and we will. Today, there's a lot of good information about the causes of climate change and the consequences that will have and yet Americans still commute by car and take cross country flights, so tell me how you can argue that anyone's behavior would have changed if Americans had known more earlier Oh. There's a lot of technologies that we could have engaged in a lot of different sorts of things including moving toward renewable energy sources including rapid transit that might be less carbon emitting. There are a lot of things that people are doing right now to reduce the carbon footprint. We've seen dramatic increase in solar and wind usage in the last few years. Mean the world is adjusting? What if we would've just had a ten or twenty years to make that adjustment rather than the limited amount of time that we have now now the first paragraph of this lawsuit you mentioned that climate change will disproportionately impact people living in poverty and people of color, other climate change lawsuits have not put this issue, front and center. Why did you WANNA put equity in the foreground of your case? Well codes is true. Which is always important? You know to make sure that we tell the story about what's really going on here. So many civil rights groups that work on issues of racial and economic justice don't always factor in the environmental realities that people of color and low income people face. I mean the fact is. Is that environmental justice and environmental harms that disproportionately affect communities of color and low income people? Is a civil rights issue, and it should be treated as that. We've got to make sure that as people are working on criminal justice and things like that factoring environmental justice as urgent as it is, give us an example or two of how climate change has already affected the lives of Minnesotans well I. Mean if you're a farmer, you probably have seen much wetter feels than you've ever seen Those wetter feels delayed. You're growing season. We've seen you've seen infestation in. In Pass that are impacting There are a lot the range of things that MINNESOTANS are seeing. Every day. We saw many of them just last week. One person who was with us was an environmentalist who is on the wider nation of GIBB. Way And she was talking about how rice production has been dramatically impacted, which is a she called a sacred food of the way people, and how the just climate change, the traumatic dramatically affected how they can harvest that crop. We reached out to the defendants for comment and Exxon Mobil responded calling the lawsuit. A politically motivated campaign against energy companies, saying that wastes taxpayer money. How do you respond to that? City by wasted money into them, you know they need to come in come to the table and talked with us about how they're going to mitigate the harm that they caused. You know they need to discourse their profits. They need to start telling the truth about the deception that they have put forward any to help us get on the path to renewable green energy. That's what they need to do but of course you know they've lied from the start. There's still lying. So that's just the way they do business you know there have been a lot of other cases like yours and so far none have been successful New York's attorney general lost a case against. Against Exxon Mobil others or taking a long time to resolve, what makes you think this one will be successful where others so far have not been? We have great confidence in Minnesota's consumer loss I mean this lawsuit claimed fried failure to warn multiple and separate violations of consumer fraud statutes deceptive trade practices. We can show that they have done it now. I'll never underestimate their ability to op. Escape trick and avoid, but we're even more confident in our ability to put on a strong powerful case that will require that. They have to be held accountable, so imagine for a moment that you do in this case. What do you want the impact or consequences to be? What we want is to disgorge their profits we want. We're seeking out remedial and injunctive relief in restitution. And we believe there needs to be a corrective public education campaign. They need to stop lying. Start telling the truth. They need to teach people that what they had been saying wasn't true that there that there is one there is climate change to it's caused by fossil fuels and its effects are catastrophic. We believe that the money that they have received based on their deception is ill gotten gains. They should not be allowed to retain it. Minnesota Attorney General Keith and thank you for speaking with us. Thank

That looks over the street and during the Norman. Training all week this week for a new position that I started This is really sad and creepy. But I don't give a shit I've been sitting there at work on this training and I have a setup inoculate next to me and anytime a hot guy ran by shirtless. I am literally with the binoculars. Just watch I know. It's okay but I'm like I need entertainment. I'm sitting here. I mean summer won't stop in San Diego. People are running Middle Antoni. I know what he didn't do you are do. Did you watch celebrity drag race yet? Did Anybody Watch it? I watched this morning. It was more of a C- Liberty drag race. Yeah the only it was Jordan Connor from Riverdale was one of the guys he plays Sweet Peon Riverdale. He's not even one of the main players and then Nico I forget his last name. He's Super Gay and doesn't stop moving he's binary is when you want okay. Yeah he's buying but you but he doesn't the being on the show he just doesn't stop moving he's constantly just like all over the place where it was like exhausting watching them and then the third guy was a stand up comedian. Who I've never heard of before but but I think that made it into funny was that they had Bob Monet and Trixie as mentors and they made the show funny with their like bits and all that But it's definitely it's not like I know Mariam Remembers it's not like drag you dre. It has a totally different vibe than drag. You see I was. I was thinking it was basically just like a reconstructed version of drag you. Yeah it's it's it has the same kind of outlined but a different vibe and intrigue you totally. I enjoy to watch it. Yeah I enjoyed it. I think I think it's very it's new so I think it will find its footing. And then they'll they'll get the swing of it and it'll be good but yeah and there's another show Starting on HBO. Max Did you guys see legendary. It's a voguish competition show. That is starting. So they're taking all the really popular houses. And they're putting him in a competition on voting. It's a ball show this and they said this is the first time ever that a major network is doing this type of competition show with the ball scene like it's full on. Hbo Put a lot of money into it And if you go and watch the view it looks really it. Looks like it's going to be real in it so isn't it on? Hbo Matt So like You can't even watch it if you don't have that kind of made me mad at hp Max because you know how they have. Hbo Go so it's separate from HBO Go.

"coke" Discussed on Unofficial Partner Podcast
"The game in London Coke brought some elements from the boxer all around Europe to rebuild the infrastructure in UK more recently about Beijing Helped to develop nudge as a supply chain building new factories but also the relationship with the local businesses zone so It has a a an incredible potential. But you need to think to have a strong vision and you need to think strategically and how you can leverage it. I think now the development the geography is enough. Because what is happening today now will how we see fans or consumers changing. You know you need to probably reinvent the partnership to find a really meaningful Or strong purpose to to be meaningful to people. So I mean you'll you'll what you're saying. I guess the the idea of the Olympics and the the the purpose is is stronger than this at any tactical activation of it absolutely. And if the so you need a purpose going in presumably so if a company doesn't have one it it can't borrow one from the Games. It can't hope that there is a transfer of the games or the the sort of Olympia Zoom. The metaphor will attach to the brand in some way. Because that doesn't seem like that works. I think the big mistake would go and do like an Olympic campaign. You know if your business you're here to develop your business at and he has to be in relation with the Olympic but it's so easy to become passionate about the Olympic can and do a an Olympic campaign in supporting athletes. And that's what you see very often with partners is you can see the same type of campaign against seek a Brennan and it sends him from another. It doesn't really create different. So you need to find that sweet spot that is specific to your business the role you want to play in them upping this. Do you think that the packages the partnership is showing its age in the in the sort of digital era is coming under pressure to to evolve? Yes have been discussion for. I mean since I'm I've been working on this. They always been discussion on what the new the next To bother should look like it is Actually it's challenging for all sides. I guess the videos he's facing is when you have to secure revenue for the long term the first source of revenue as you know is the broadcast so when you do deals like twenty or sixteen years in advance you have no idea what the the landscape will be in the future. I know and the when the dealing in the early two thousands coup news about the social media. Nobody was Projecting this and I think the challenge is in the meantime the way we do mocking US completely change. So you have like some gap assum challenging than an how you can A lawyer partner to do activation and respect the deal. You've made with the broadcaster so you have to be more creative. You have to To stretch media set Maybe Jewish. But it's not an easy task for sure. Is there an ex Pacific? You'd like to see the IFC evolve in terms of its relations partners. Well I think it's not specific to see between the will of sports and companies because I think they're often the risk still that I think the distance that is created between sponsors and and and I think there is for me especially the the notion of purpose that is becoming more important. I think the notion of strategic partners becoming more important is not just with buying peel said of rights I think sponsored Need to find partner. That will that will help them to grow nachos their business but also what they will leave the benefit of the positive impact Society and to be able to do that the need to find strategic partner. And maybe the Reza your mood as to create you know about the architecture of sponsorship of some will pay a fee to acquire some rights and some others will invest in invest potentially in shares in the organization differently when we've seen some example but it's I would love to see the will of sports becoming more winning losing and trying to leverage what partners could bring them so the the brand purpose argument which is central to the Olympics Olympic Movement. You do is what you're saying. Is that sports rights in the sports market generally needs to present itself in a different way. There's quite often said that the Olympics is not sports sponsorship in that sense. It's it's broader than that is that what is that. What you're getting out there yapping. So but but I think it's all the sports industry needs to. I mean we've seen that A lot in with some football club that becoming 's companies in that sports organization DOT companies. Now and what they have done is they have the it become a provisional have developed some department that they didn't have we see still love Sports Asian that lack of Of of skills that you can find organization such as marketing or communication strategy. Or you know I mean most of the sponsors Ation abode under the toss to organize sports evens and they are very talented doing that. But what a need to add now is the need to boost the need to develop their marketing communications skills to be able to be stronger and be able to To think feel the the needs of the conjurer because we are leaving in a in a very competitive environment in Oman Tournament. There is a lot of things happening. Sports one to several different. The need to embrace Marketing as a way to better connect with their fans. Do you think I mean? Look across the sports market. Against Difficult to generalize or different different variations of this but do you think that sports teams governing bodies the do they know who their fans are. I would say not enough for sure. I think there is some work ongoing to try to better understand the young but they you know it's always the risk when you have a product that it's targeted to everybody the risks to talk. Nobody so I A thing when you are on global even slack that you need to to to develop the standing of the audience. And I think the I was working in that have been working in looking at the. I was very close in and it's quite impressive. The the sheep that we have seen over the last two years I mean they. They have the loved our team. They have developed a skill set. But there's still a lot to do because I think they were I think a lot of behind so they're trying to catch up in a very complicated environment and I think they're doing a pretty good job is the what was the conversation at coke around the age of Olympic views because obviously the cliches. It's getting beyond fifty and as the average TV audience. Yeah td you were on. Sport is the getting older. I think that's where we need to to develop programs to To reach out to younger target but the rate is the youngest talk is still interested of games time You know I had many discussion all the time before you with a snapchat All these new phone with a time there were coming to us than say will love to do things. We've you reach out to the you know these. These platform will really target around the young audience. We're interested because during the Games. The topic is Olympic. Nine of the competition. Maybe what's happening around but this is something that is relevant so you have to develop things that will be relevant and when d- when example What we need in Rio for example would create the space in the Porta of religion. Era where Creating experiences For the Young Generations re-targeted Doug Jones and broadcasted wave some social media to recharge the broader audience across the country so the Olympic is becoming really an excuse to Few that is relevant to to engage with younger so there is a way to do it. there is a lot more can be done. Obviously and I think that goes back to the audience. You know it's If you talk to the audience you need to have the proper messaging and the way to communicate different so you cannot have the message to everybody. So that's why I think on the Sports Organization needs to learn also in how to adapt their messaging property to The respect you items. Do you have sympathy for the athletes perspective around the the. Reu Forty conversation tons of the flexibility that they need to to all the way in which they could sell the Olympics. But it's difficult to do that too with with such a berry tight restrictions on the. It's.
"coke" Discussed on Ghost Town
"Around since the eighteen hundreds and did not go well. New Coq did not go well. It went famously. Bad for a dynamo of I mean when you think about food any products but you products hoke is number. And Not just soda. Coke is like when you think of an iconic brand. Do you think of Disney. You think. Mcdonald's he think of Coca Cola they worked it into Christmas. Yeah the co-course like say a polar bear Santa Drinking Soda also. What does this have to do with anything like we say as you say you like? And you like this like yeah. Do there the longest sponsor of the Olympics. It's like you want to be healthy. You want to be the best athlete. Drink Sodas -actly mainly copeland. Yes please only coke. So it's a it's an icon and what coke didn't really count on. Was the brand loyalty they end people. Sometimes they don't like change now in an effort to sometimes changes for the better but some people do not like change they. They don't want to be reminded that things are changing. They want the thing that they've and of course. Your taste buds are like. I'm accustomed to this. I like the way this taste. I don't necessarily want something new. He was a problem. Is that coke has always been number one yeah Pepsi number two. He's back then. There was a far hanaway. Mcdonald's is number one in birding summer to there's a far divide but around in the eighties Pepsi was really like rising to where they were like. Whoa they're getting way too close to where at and that was because of the Pepsi Challenge was huge. You know people that. The marketing of the Pepsi Challenge was huge for Pepsi. Because they were just like. It's almost like what you'd see in like a youtube video now where it's like re or it's like a reality thing it's like. What do you think tastes better? And then you say Pepsi three times in the mirror and then Pepsi comes and kills you best challenge. Yes regarding dark and then you put a Pepsi Cannon. Your Lips fucking Lee. Yeah so it was really weird. That's pretty cool. But what coke decides like. Well all right people seem to be digging on. Pepsi. Let's switch coke taste more like Pepsi. Which Essentially Pepsi is sweeter? I grew up you passing Pepsi Guy. Really Pepsi Diet Cokes. All the way home now it was a Pepsi and then straight up original mountain dew. Which is that is. Yeah toxic yet. Mom Do also they energy drinks a really strong mountain dew? When I go out and do now I feel like my heart is gonNA explode. Yeah honestly like to drink us always someone in college. They're like they would drink like three liters of mountain dew a day. And you're just like are you insane? Coke was like well how about this? We'll just scrap are very popular product. And then just become closer. They never would admit it but they were like you're making its tweeter tastes more like caps. Which is both lacks confidence and is very arrogant. Inlex confidence because it's like your product is what has brought you here. People love it and is arrogant. Because you think that you're gonNA keep loyal buyers involved and profitable if you're going to give a speech on them and just GonNa drink or you're going to take away from people. I think it's almost like our original base. Who Cares where he got them? They'll drink wherever we give them. We need to take Pepsi out of People's hands and put now hoax in their hands and it did not go well. Not even so much that it it was like. Oh it tasted bad or poisoned people. I remember drinking and I was like Oh cool. How's it didn't taste like in Miami like RC? Cola which was a little bit similar Pepsi? Kind of reminded me of that and Article. It was so gross it was pretty teacher only drank. Rc. Gal I kinda liked it but it was in that Pepsi. It was it was an very like you're right a little bit. Sweeter kind of like ten year tastes sure. Yeah like Cherry. I need a little cherry. The very like and then mountain dew has a hint of like the citrus. Yeah in there so they were kind of big on that. However Coco was so confident. They made such a huge delivers the chairman and CEO. Robert Gozweta went before the press gathering in New York City's Lincoln Center to introduce the new formula. He used his smoother. Rounder yet. Boulder a more harmonious flavor but the press pretty much knew that new coke tasted sweeter and more like Pepsi. They'd performed one hundred ninety thousand blind taste tests on US and Katie consumers. So they it's not like they didn't test new COQ. They did a similar thing and I don't know how the test does the blind his consist of. Are they doing it to skew into this? Is What's better other. Suggestive things but on paper. They did the work. It's not like they just switched it over but they underestimated the nation's sentimental value. That's why you and they're accustomed to that tastes and they don't like the fact that you're like you're telling me what. I love your stupid and now I'm insulted. You're taking it away from me. Yeah also like Soda and Cola Cola. Everything is gross. Like it's all gross. It's synthetic like we grew. You grew up on something like you did with Pepsi. And you're just like what you like and it's never really GonNa Change and in which things I know in the south where Dr John Pemberton. I created it in eighteen eighty six. It's one hundred year old soda doing well it's not like it's faltering it. Just wait. The number two is is like a closer number two than it has been so we get defensive and in the south that was This is where it was invented. Don't change it got flooded with phone. Calls forty thousand letters tons of bad press and they got up to eight thousand calls a day at a higher extra operators to handle all the calls because it's like public public relations so three months later they announced return of Coca Cola. Classic which Israeli Ringing Bells Right Coppola Classic Peter Jennings and he interrupted General Hospital to let people know that nukes out. Yeah Coca Cola. Classic Trash to bring you trashed trash and it still worked out. Feel like there's like seven up which is owned by coke. Yeah I have to check. Somebody's talking about soda with people like where things aren't for some reason seven. Uh for some reason is doing really well. Of course bottled water came in and Kinda shook things up in tease a snapple. Those things really shook things but coke. I mean you know you. Don't that joke where you go. And you're like Coke Pepsi. Okay entering the exact kind of thing owner vernacular the coke is synonymous with the Soda for the Cola. That's success there. Were protests by groups such as COLA DRINKERS OF AMERICA? Well people protested and poured new coq into sewer drains. Great Environment Great. Excellent we are point has been made. You're buying new coke. Yeah just to trash a freedom fighter.
