NFL Playoff Predictions: Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

"We'll start things off in the nfc where the green bay packers playing host to the tampa. Bay buccaneers. You're looking at green bay. Three and a half point favorite at faneuil sportsbook total in this game at fifty one and a half and pain. When i dug into this game i was blown away not by some of the statistics that are there the xs and os but by the simple fact that this'll be aaron rodgers first. Nfc title game. That will at home given everything he's been able to accomplish in his career and greenvale have something pretty strong working in their favor when you consider that since the wild card round began in nineteen seventy eight teams playing their third straight road game or just five and twelve against the spread for thirteen straight up so tampa get have to work against that particular trend but when you have the greatest of all time at the quarterback position. I'm sure a lot of your fears are swayed by all of that when you try and identify some of the matchups here we know these teams that. You're just assuming. Patrick mahomes doesn't get seven. Well a patron hose may seven. But he's not the go he might be the go in waiting. And who knows. Maybe we'll get a ceremonial passing of the baton from tom to patrick in tampa in two short weeks. But we're getting ahead of ourselves there as well when you look at this particular game and i know we go through the offense versus defense but which side of the ball is going to be more fascinating for you to watch tom. Brady against this. Suddenly resurgent packers defense. Who in my opinion really hasn't been tested over the last couple of weeks or aaron rodgers looking to atone for his worst performance of the season against the tampa bay bucks defensive front. I think they're both interesting. Obviously in one thing that we've talked about air this entire postseason is we're getting some good matchups. We're getting some great games. We have to be thrilled with the four teams remaining. And i know browns fans won't like this but we don't have a team that's undeserving or doesn't belong. We don't have a team. That's seven and a half eight win. Team somehow sneaking their way into the final four so to speak here with with an upset win and then taking advantage of an injury to the most important play like we have the four teams. Here that are right up there in the power rankings. You could certainly say the saints or there but you know if if i think we knew exactly what was wrong with drew brees report we might not have the saints as the top five credential. You you mean his wife coming out and saying he played the latter portion of the season with a torn labor. Him didn't have any effect on his lacklustre efforts. Throwing the ball downfield torn torn labor. M- rotator cuff torn plantar fascia and still had. I guess three fractured ribs most healed but right and so i think that was part of the the line move last week now for sure looking at this right in this match while we're getting the great games and i of go back to my initial thought here while we're getting the great matchups for us to watch there's so much variance there so many like holes to attack. That team can do that. Like sometimes you get games whereas like you break them down. Nearly there's nothing really there. These games have a lot here. And whichever one can. It's going to cause this massive variance in the game. I think we even said that last week in the packers we're going to find out who's for real. We think the packers defense is packers. Offense is really good. We think the rams defense is really good. Neither of really played a tough schedule. And i get aaron. Donald was injured last week. But i think we kind of saw. What the rams were when. They went up against an elite offense because they hadn't really faced any elite offense is aside from my guess what you could call a familiar opponent with russell wilson seattle. Who is trending horrifically to end the season. So let's start there right. And i think the obvious element the thing that we'll talk about a lot because it's worth bringing up what you'll probably. Here's you listen to a lot of breakdowns of this game all week and the one thing that can really swing this game. I think is pressure on aaron rodgers. Can the the buccaneers defense make aaron rodgers uncomfortable. And i think it's pretty pretty simple. That's going to be the largest determining factor of this game and if you're going to get a situation where aaron rodgers is strong from clean pocket. The game's over right. It's done with of quarterbacks with at least one hundred and twenty-five dropbacks aaron rodgers number one in the nfl one thirty passer rating from a clean pockets got forty touchdown four picks and clean bach suggested completion percentage when kept clean is eighty five percent. If you don't pressure. Rogers like you're not going into lambeau in january with possible weather and beating him

What If 2020 Was Just One Big MMORPG?

"Earlier. This year i stumbled on a very intriguing sub reddit called simply outside by its name alone would have thought maybe it was photos of nature or a group for outdoorsy people trading tips about hiking. But no this is red it so of course. The true purpose of the group was much more creative and a bit ironic. The are outside sub. Reddit is one of many in character. Kind of role playing breads and in this one all the posts are pretending that our actual reality is in fact quoting the community description. A free to play. Mmorpg's with seven billion plus active players and quotes. the sub. reddit. Itself has almost six hundred fifty thousand players with a decent chunk of those joining this year. Although the sub reddit has been around technically since two thousand nine so basically people post and comment on real world events either of public interest or day today occurrences in their personal lives in the vernacular of a video game. As if this were just some game they were playing and this is the board where you go to discuss. Tips and tricks game updates and complain about the developers. Here are a few recent posts to give you an idea. Hey did any faction finished successfully. The democracy storyline with full rights achievements. Is it even possible anyone else. Have the bug where putting two sock items in the dryer. object occasionally deletes sock item. What happened to legendary user super underscore obama three seven three. I haven't heard from him in a while. He was an amazing guild leader. I would like to know what's up with him as with other in character sub reddit. It's like one of my old favorites are stuck ten years behind where you're only allowed to post as if it's twenty. Ten are outside is a light hearted way to share personal victories. Or talk to others about your thoughts and struggles but in a shared language that can make it a bit. Easier to be a little vulnerable quoting. The washington post part of the appeal suggested sarah lynn bowmen and academic studies role. Playing games is the shared. Language understood by all participants ages are referred to as levels events. Are quests or many games. One user who recently came out as bisexual wrote at level eighteen. My confidence stat has increased enough to remove the closet de buff for other users to comment. They must. I know that a doba refers to affects in games. That damage a main characters stats. This is the way. Social groups tend to function. They create their own jargon. Thrown in references are symbols of belonging. Bowman said world is full of anxieties. Right now some people might find comfort in discharging that through humor with people who can understand language and where they can find a sense of belonging and quotes and some people do talk about some serious things like fearing the uncertainty of death by referring to it as a data wipe that can happen at any time and unlocking new levels when graduating college or power leveling new players when having kids covid nineteen has been a regular topic of discussion this year as a world event that the developers chose to do in which has not been popular with any players. I'll read a little from the currently pinned post about the vaccine written by a real world medical professional quote high philo gamers longtime raid healer. Checking in. I wanted to say hello and give some insights about the much anticipated in game item covid vaccine. There's a lot of controversy around this item. The devs really eft up. When they created the covid nineteen world events players have been reporting crippling to buffs. That seem to last for ages. Summed buffs are permanent. It's made the game. Unplayable for lots of people and most players are sheltering in their starting area to avoid the enemies. Some players have even uninstalled due to how crippling dot's in buffs are so the devs have patched the game with the vaccine item. I in several of the healers in my guild. Got the item crafted by pfizer. About ten days ago. They've already released to the public test. Realm or p. Our notes. And it's looking like this is the answer to finally end this shitty world events in the pr using the item. Even one time resulted in your character. Getting around seventy five to eighty five percent immunity to all damage from the covid class enemies and using it a second time got ninety five percent immunity. We may even see a day when we won't need enchanted armor like the cloth masks anymore though that's still recommended for now.

Farming like Indigenous people did could bolster Hawaiis food supply

"Hawaii imports more than eighty five percent of its food. So extreme weather disrupt shipping. It could have serious consequences for the state. You just kinda grow up knowing that we only have like a week of food on the shelves and if the barge doesn't come wearing in big trouble that's natalie courage shema while a phd student. At the university of hawaii. She studied whether indigenous farming methods could help reduce this food insecurity especially as the climate changes. I always wondering how can we learn from our iki. Kupuna extra knowledge to address of i-it's sustainability issues. Today she says before colonization indigenous farmers grew crops in areas. That people today would not they. Farmed terraced land that had to be flooded during cultivation and grew roof. Ish ables under banana and coconut trees. Those methods were productive. She studies suggest that they could have produced enough food for eighty six percent of hawaii's current population. So if implemented today indigenous farming methods could make hawaii's food system more resilient to extreme weather and help the state sustain itself in the future as it did in the past.

Facebook's Future with Mari Smith

"We're gonna be talking a little bit about facebook's future in some of the things that she seen going on there's a lot happening privacy's sort of a big thing right now which will touch upon but lives video groups all kinds of stuff. What's the biggest thing that you see right now. That's really changing. Facebook that marketers need to know and then maybe we can get into some of the specifics of those things that they need to know. Murray absolutely well you just mentioned privacy and it was just double checking the day and it was march of two thousand nineteen zuckerberg mark zuckerberg kind of like almost like out of the blue is a little unanticipated. He pandas mega manifesto his privacy manifest doom. And everybody's talking about always. The pivot to privacy am own kind of interpretations of why this came about. You know what's the longer term. Play here that sucker. Berg is up to in it was in essence of there was an aspect of it was in response to the potential antitrust is also just getting pushed into like Know all the regulation components of i think eventually the whole social media landscape. We'll get regulated. That's inevitable just like radio television newspapers. It's inevitable so that's coming at some point and this is Kind of anticipating that in. What's fascinating to watch okay. What is the pivot privacy. Meanwhile they're doubling down on focusing on the three main messaging products that what's out being the biggest one. And then messenger which is really the number one messenger gap into the us. What's up number outside the us. And though they compete with apple i messages is pretty popular around the world and then the third one is instagram dragged in so zuckerberg in that manifesto use this word interoperability numerous times. We're just talking off lying there. Baking together familiar with that. If you're headed by the way my dad was a professional. Baker starlight bake cakes cupcakes stuff. So here's basically baking together. These three main messaging apps are products in essence. So they can kind of like not be in big more difficult so he can stand up there in goal no but no all of our users and our businesses our business. You know advertisers and customers. They have to be able to have these three products together and then but he's not saying out of course what they're seeing public facing which really we can all buy into. It's like hey yeah pun. Intended customer goes to instagram. He's looking year. She's looking at your shop owner. Gosh this item the go they buy it and then they're like but they tend to use what's out for two chatting or managing people and businesses. So they can their customer service. Follow up there asking questions. They can choose which inbox going to land in. What's up is direct or messenger. That's the aspect of interoperability. What's coming to is the ability to actually make those purchases inside any of those three inboxes in get the kind of the follow up. And then you've got that whole aspect of the chat baugh automation continues to be developed. So yes that would be. The main one is really. We were also talking about ecommerce. You know ralph. I know that area you focus on your agency and its ecommerce mobile commerce. you know. it's taken a leaf out of the. The books are the apps of asia's doing predominantly china. There's huge huge apps that entire operating systems inside of one one app. Don't see each being the biggest one of them but i think marketers today really looking towards developing their twenty twenty one plan. If you are in remotely in the world of e-commerce you have something to sell. But my point is there's a distinction here between physical products because that's almost always what facebook instagram ten to differentiate. They bring it all these features and it's shutting up shop earlier this year. The they just call it facebook shop. But it's now kind of streamline so if you have facebook shop it also is sitting right there on instagram and you can integrate with their partners right like shop of finding one of the main ones and so but were they've come right out and said is hey we recognize there are service based businesses and there are digital product based businesses and they're quote unquote working on solutions for all types of businesses. So i'm excited about that. Those those of us do digital product services. Yeah and you kinda started answering the question. That i had mario in terms of you know based on facebook trying to start baking all of these programs together. Have you seen that kind of come together with the programs that they've started in twenty twenty four businesses that are needing help during the pandemic and businesses. Maybe that are not so product centric and maybe more service centric like would have you seen happening with those kind of being a pulled together through the programs that they've started this year. We'll some of the real easy ones that they slipped in earlier in the year was like adding sticker onto instagram stories. Were you could users could recommend their favorite shops. Our local stores stick her in tag. The instagram account. That's made it made a difference to small business. I would hope so also like really trending hashtags hashtag support small business. They also june july of this year really emphasized. Hash is on facebook now. It's a whole other topic. I wrote a blog post about it. Hashtag of thing on facebook since two thousand thirteen so after seven years like okay. Now it'd be a good time to make them relevant on facebook. So i'm recommending to all my clients and students not in audience members is to go ahead and include hashtag support small business singular and plural on practically every post. You do so just adds a real easy simple one but about your question about the baking together. What happened just a couple of months ago. Is that the initial component of that interoperability. Kim with messenger integrate thing with instagram direct. To the point that they changed the dang logo now his do my head and because there's like every logo is all the same kind. I don't know what's happening anywhere. Google did the same thing right. Real visit dead called click up. It's like the same colors. And then i'm like a messenger instagram. Say all these seem like rainbow colors confused a lot of people and so now okay. Now we're not just doing that. light blue on messenger. Instagram and messenger so lots of changes all at once. It definitely does seem like the focus or the push for new products in the last three years on. Facebook has been more geared towards ecommerce dynamic product as and obviously facebook shop. And now you've got this interoperability with shop. It's really interesting. Because the digital the info people service people like. Well wait a second i mean. Obviously small business storefronts. That's always been sort of a mainstay stan. Or you're really involved with a lot of the small business. push that they did for marketing. But it's interesting to hear that digital like these other businesses which we all know and love. Obviously that's like that's how they make their living is going to be a more of a push in the coming years. Which is which is really good news. I think for a lotta listeners. Well it's true because you know we've all been selling online for you know a decade two decades and so wonderful able to have all of these users on their mobile devices and by the way of course. Instagram is one hundred percent mobile. they have the desktop version. But everybody's mobile and then facebook. It's roughly about eighty percent. Eighty five percent that predominantly access facebook on their mobile devices. So the easier. You can make it for the customer whether bbc to just tap tap. Tap bob okay. You know whether impulse purchases or really more thoughtful ones or just even getting into your funnel. Obviously those are. Those are really great in jackson. Re targeting you mention dynamic ads ralph and so you know i think you know some companies are just really good at sitting in your car like amazon. And they're like oh you might like these other twenty. Things would work exceedingly well. I mean it's one of the greatest tools especially for ecommerce

3 Strategies to Power your Profits with Susie Carder

"Everyone to the intelligence of podcast. Today i have the pleasure of interviewing and speaking with suzy. Carter welcome susie thank you thanks for having me and thank you for being who you are in the industry and being just a bad ass leader making happen. I am as static to speak with you. Another schedules like super busy. And i had the opportunity to meet you about four years ago at speaking right and i was thinking man. I really liked the chance to chat with her. But at the time there were so many people crowded around you. You're just finished talking about prophets which is part of our conversation today. Yes having this opportunity to kind of continue a conversation that i wanted to have altogether is like a real real blessing for me. So thank you for being on our show. You're welcome this my jam. I love talking about profit and helping coaches authors. Riders entrepreneurs make money because their strategy. And i don't know about you. But when i started i didn't the strategy right. Fifteen percent of our financial successes base our technical ability. So that's the vocation that you're in so it's kind of scary when you think of only fifteen percent of how you get paid as the work you do. The eighty five percent is our sales. Our marketing operations. Finance right is how we do the work now. I have to be amazed at my fifteen percent. I got to be good and my fifteen percent. But if i'm not focused on that eighty percent i'll never make money. That's why you see people who have been in business for ten years but they haven't really grown. I say you don't have ten years of experience. I say one year of experience repeating at ten times. I'm sorry that heard. I'm sorry. But i tell you 'cause i didn't know bright so my goal is to help you know an uncover. What's your genius. what's your gift. How do we monetize that. Because when you to monetize your gift you never work a day again. This is my job right now. Come on how fun is this. It's fun for me. Some people the number one fear in life is is public. Speaking number two is death by fire. Yom rather burn in hell. Then come and speak live. I'm just a little cuckoo. i'm the crazy white. You're on you know what one of the things about your speaking style. That's the thing that made me wanna talk with you because it was so direct until the point. We just really what i prefer in so before we get into power your prophets. I wanna talk a little bit about your grit story ammo flip it a little bit from what i usually do in. Start with my question which is grid on. My podcast stands for grace resilience integrity in tenacity When you eat about your story yes your career with the salon is spine all the work you've done with motivating the masses and all of these other training development businesses. You've grown which one of those words were nate with you. The most and tell me why. Why integrity is huge for me right when i look at. I believe that the degree of your aliveness is to the degree of your integrity. What i mean by that. I mean that if you were pretending to be something that you're not you're adam untidy and people can see it. People can feel it off thing. You know you've seen speakers you've seen business people like she's nice and all but there's something i don't know what it is and so integrity is like dirty laundry. You can clean it all day long and then by the evening you're gonna put dirty underwear dirty clothes in the laundry basket. That's integrity right. I can try all day long to be have a level inheriting. I might say something to offend somebody. So it's my job to clean it up and so it's part of my value system. I'm not saying i'm perfect. I'm not saying how the down on the time. I saved dumb stuff. Because i don't know what i don't know but i'm willing to clean it up and win your business if you can have a high level integrity and fall on the sword quicker faster rate people get upset when clients are upset and they wanna make the client run the rallies on the store. Just clean it up. People respect that

Bob Glazer on the Importance of Putting Principles & Values Over Issues & Rules

"Bob man. I'm so excited that you here. Welcome dose of leadership. thanks richard. i'm glad i may work. Yeah me too crazy times elections over. Yeah kobe's is ramping up. Thank god thank. God believes that i think i think so too. I think there's I don't know for me. I think i lean more libertarian. And conservative and i'm not a fan of one of them wasn't but i i don't know i think it's kind of a best case scenario. Most where you if you get a republican senate and you got biden in now people can have to work for it right so i'm kind of happy for inert administration mark forces people to have to compromise this sort of approach of like up. It's our way time to punish in. You know you know get reprimands for reagan for. It's like no one knows who started it. We're going to do this because you did i. I mean there's gotta be some things that everyone can can agree on. And yeah i agree. I hope i hope that Over works out that people will just start to come together a little bit. I mean someone was telling me that like ronald reagan. Won forty nine states was reminding me of that and i was like i. I would never happen in my lifetime again. Forty nine states and he did and I don't know you know i. It is funny. How who else not funny. But i mean we've all talked about nauseam. How how the divisive everything is. But i think is particularly talking leadership you know the the obligations that we have you know. We were talking pre recording. That i encourage because i got a pretty diverse mastermind group with all political spectrums. Kind of reminds me when i looked back at my parents. They had this circle of friends and almost all of them have passed away but they were all newly married in the late fifties early sixties. I mean you had you know. Jfk democrats you had richard nixon republicans. You had catholics yet. Protestants yet Jews and they all twelve six couples and they did live together with my point. They always played bridge when cards. They would get together once a month but they did live together and they would argue about politics and kind of ribbing sort of way but they loved each other and that's what seems to be missing in all of this right. I don't know how we can get back to that kind of ideal like where my parents in their friends where they didn't talk. Politics didn't rule their lives and it seems like politics. Lose everything right. I mean funny. In that case politics was probably knocked the threat right it was. Oh these are good decent hard-working people who share sharon values. And and and you know. I just think we're moving from look. Leadership is a very values based thing rang moving from you know values to sort of just hard lines that can't can't be cross And and yeah it to me. It's just we're just ruining objectivity and it's insulting people's intelligence it's like black and black white isn't wait. I don't mean in the racial sense. I mean we all used agree like that's a circle. That's where and now like these things are. Just you know it's a it's if if one side looking at it it's not a square and if the other side looking at it circle and i to me like critical thinking like a really important skill and it's just it's degrading or i don't know where it's going critical thinking certainly has suffered and I don't know. And i think back if you know looking back to when my parents were newly married like said in that kind of jfk era. Yeah i mean the you you mentioned values and principles and i think that's what's missing. There is a shared value. You know even if you were democrat or republican red or blue or whatever. The there was a hierarchy. Now simple low. They precipitate low it. That's right that that is that is. That's what's worrisome to me and look at massachusetts right so we were one of those one the state. that didn't vote for ronald reagan. Wherever pretty blu ray. We've republican governor right now with a eighty five percent approval rating like. He's done a really good job on covid he's been out in front. Like people are judging him on his on his merits. And what he's done. And i think if you know if we were in the you know we we got hurt early on but you know. He's a conservative also worked in the health industry so he had interesting balance like if we were one of the worst states in the country i think people would be more upset right and again that to me is out rightful leadership issue. Not a political issue in this notion of how leadership in politics have gotten. Totally intertwined is fascinates. Me i. it's it's interesting

America’s Zombie Companies Have Racked Up $1.4 Trillion of Debt

America’s Zombie Companies Have Racked Up $1.4 Trillion of Debt

"Zombie apocalypse on wall street. Hundreds of big name companies wants american icons are now among the walking dead names like boeing carnival delta exxon macy's. They aren't making enough money to pay the interest. On the mountains of debt they feasted on during the pandemic. Nearly two hundred companies have joined the zombie ranked since march and their numbers are growing total debt obligations now nearly one point four trillion dollars. So is there any hope for the walking dead here guy. I mean what's interesting. Is that a lot of these names. They are names that we talk about trading on this show. So how should we start thinking about this before we get in the walking dead. I just want to point out. That's a great job by our crack. staff leading. With of course the cranberries zombie which is a bit of an obvious choice in the great delors. Oh reared who lost too soon. She was obviously the founder of the band wonderful vocalist. I might have gone a different direction. And maybe we could've played something like this for example. Melissa leo the crack staff is listening into the show. Why the zombies. No it's important to point out the folks at home. It's more important than actually trading our first topic in what is known as the block of the. It's not it's not more important. And i and we'll talk about the black and we'll talk about zombie companies because i think it's important and last night we mentioned macy's and you talked about one hundred dollars table. Then tim said might be the thousand dollar table. And i think collectively. We thought there was a real good chance that with test that nine fifty five level which was the june high and i think it got up to nine twenty five today on two or three times normal volume. Now's the time to be taking profits. A lotta shorts have been squeezed other companies that you mentioned delta for example. I think that's a completely different ballgame. But what i will say. This counterintuitive is. This may seem if the economy starts to get better. You would think this is good for these companies but that means interest rates economic higher. And that's going to cripple some of these companies. We talked about it last night. And i'm sure one of our guests coming out. We'll talk about that again. Tim how do you start thinking about macy's and that debt that they apparently can't service. I mean when i think about dombi i think about that thriller video and i know guys got that red leather jacket with all the zippers on it. So just just to be clear. I think when i think about those companies you just mentioned they're all they're all different in terms of their Potential to be proper zombies a great band by the way. But i think you know boeing not assam company You know it's not Boeing is a company that has the ability to raise debt. But more importantly yes. Boeing's business has been totally disrupted boeing. His burned through so much cast in the last year. And it will burn through some castro most of twenty-one but it will be free cash flow positive by twenty two in probably be neutral by the fourth quarter so calling them assam company. I think is absurd. Calling macy's zombie company is something that's at least a fair analysis although again macy's showed that free cash flow with something that they expect they're going to have in twenty twenty one two and a company that raised a lot of money To to at least be able to fight another day including having a three billion dollar asset back facility is something you don't do cartwheels over macy's position right now but the recovery there and i'm long so i've made this clear. I actually think there's more of a recovery story even though i don't think macy's gets better overnight. Delta relative to other airlines is not even close to his ambi- story dealt is actually going to start to make money towards the fourth quarter of next year and we're not talking about a normalized business. We're talking about a business where odyssey international comes under a lot of pressure. So i also just think that the fed and the role that the fed is playing here and the role that the fed will play just through talking About the bazooka in their pocket means a lot of these debt markets. Don't have a whole lot of an impact in the next six months To what people think they're gonna do. I really don't expect it so it doesn't matter that these companies zombie companies it doesn't matter that delta added twenty four billion dollars in debt since the pandemic started by baldwin. At what point do we start getting worried about that. Debt load and these companies guy made the point that if the economy gets better you would think that that'd be better for these companies that can make more money they can etc said sell more whatever they make but then interest rates go higher. So how do you weigh that. Yeah those are all interesting. Factors that keep into To keep in the front of your mind. And tim did a good job of laying out the differences of these companies. But speaking to your question right the commonality of all these of these companies that they have as you have looted to have added significant portions of the balance sheet this year and they're burning through cash at a rate and their revenues are down at rates that we just haven't seen we're talking about you know seven and a half billion dollars of cash burn and eighteen billion dollars of casper burn boeing's example seven and a half carnivals example. So you have this push pushing pull situation. What i will say is that you've seen across the board. All these companies put one thing. I right and that is runway. And so they've taken on this debts that they have enough cash to get them to their next stop in order for them to continue to be able to operate what we've seen is them trying to achieve operating leverage by reducing staff count. And that is what. I think the topic that we're kind of trying to speak to. Here's when you start slashing human capital when you stop investing in capital expenditures when you stop innovating that is what leads you to being somewhat of a dead zombie company even after you've getting on the other side of this debt service coverage ratio also something to keep in mind. You can't meet your interest. Can't meet your debt service coverage ratio. You got serious problems dan. Yeah i think bond would makes a great point there and just look at our auto industry over the last ten years and obviously gm came out of bankruptcy ten years and wiped out a lot of that debt but they had a huge government interests that was really carried along and probably hurt them a lot of different ways as far as innovation and the way the bhawan just described it. It's clearly hurt for a lot of ways and look at the auto companies are doing really well right now so i think that's a great point. The other point on this make about this is that this is the world that we live in. It's the world that a lot of parts of our planet have been looking at japan over the last thirty years or whatever and then we are going to be saddled with debt whether it's consumers whether it's sovereign balance-sheets whatever the heck it is corporates. That's just the way it is. And that's why interest rates are really never gonna meaningfully. Go up again. Because we can't service all the debt and just make one other point if you think about twenty twenty and what's happened here. Obviously the fed has done their job. They hit this crisis early to make sure that we did not have large-scale bankruptcies right of some major corporations which would really snowball the unemployment situation here but let me just tell you this here. We are now four months out from expanded unemployment benefits. Were heading into the holiday season. We're in a very rocky transition and a lame duck. Congress and there is no more fiscal stimulus for small businesses and consumers. That need it really bad. So the fact that we have a trillion dollars for a bunch of companies that were buying eighty five percent using their free cash flow to eighty five percent of their free cash flow to buy back their stock over the last five years. The airlines and we can't bail out restaurants so we can't bail out consumers that is really troubling to me. Yeah we're really tough spot right now in terms of that bridge to the other side waiting for that other side for the vaccines actually be distributed and as well as injected into the arms of americans

Will distributing a COVID-19 vaccine be a "logistical nightmare"?

"About the subject of vaccines. How hopeful here as you said. We could be a couple of weeks months away from starting to see some distribution. Can we get people to take it though. That's the million dollar question. It's gonna be a logistical nightmare. I mean first vaccine. The pfizer vaccine is gosh to have to store that Minus i think ninety four degrees fahrenheit refrigerators can get it down to about ten degrees fahrenheit but Mine is ninety four fahrenheit. This is very very unusual type of product to during product that they've talked about today doesn't have such stringent requirements. But look it's it. It's going to be a nightmare to try to get this vaccine distributed to three hundred and thirty million people across the country. And by the way you know you're going to need two shots three to four weeks apart so trying to keep the the the pfizer product you know at this very very cold temperature in distributing it in a very timely fashion. I don't think people are going to probably be able to get vaccinated in terms of the masses probably into spring into summer. That's the reality. So that's why. I'd be a very very strong advocate of again. You know personal wearing a mask hand washing all the routine things that we've been told now many many times but the vaccine i think it's it's it's gonna be Our way to escape this plague because Your alternative is herd. Immunity who eighty eighty five percent of the population ultimately becomes infected Than than than transmission naturally slows down. But i think it's interesting these two products. But i the the the to mr and a vaccines have been available. You know what it's no cuisine and it's that these are in a Vaccines have come around. I as opposed to the more traditional what we call whole virus vaccines so these products. It's it's great Genetic engineering where you have the body's response to generates a protein that your body reacts to and then theoretically protects you once we had the genetic sequence of the Covid nineteen virus was relatively easy. I mean i'm not a vaccine. Knowledge is but i can tell you. It was relatively easy to make an m. r. a vaccine. What we have to do is prove that it's safe and once we can get that data out. I think that'll be really much more reassuring to the general public. You never really know clinical trials or one thing. There have been lots of medications that did great and a clinical trial. Guess what when they opened it up to the general physician prescribing population and we started giving it to all our patients. They had to pull it back within a year. Because there were all these unexpected unanticipated Medical problems associated with it. And i can tell you that. From personal experience with antibiotics that looked great on paper and once they were delivered into the general population. Unexpected side effects were seeing and the fda withdrew the approval.

Donald Trump Is Still not Conceding To The Election Results

"Donald trump is still refusing to concede after losing the us election and is insisting that he won citing baseless claims of voter fraud. He's backed up by most of his republican party and together. They're ignoring the will of the people the very foundation of democracy brian classes and associate professor in global politics at ucla and a columnist for the washington post and has written extensively on these subjects. Brian is this aku. no it's not. And the reason for that is because a coup has a very specific definition. Which is a seizure of executive power by military force. And that's not likely to happen in the united states but it is potentially going to be something where the republican party and trump are attempting to seize power after. They've lost an election which is extraordinarily dangerous for democracy. And even though it's not easy to succeed in it is. I mean there joe biden. We'll get inaugurated on january twentieth. The amount of damage is doing in faith in the democratic institutions and the democratic process of the united states enormous. And so we shouldn't take lightly i mean. Can you imagine the international reaction. If this was happening elsewhere in the world. Latin america africa. There would be a huge global outcry. Why are so many colluding with the emperor's vision of his new clothes. It has happened elsewhere in the world we had an election. a couple of years ago in the gambia in west africa in which gem lost the election and then claimed that he wanted and tried to stay in power and there was a threatened military intervention To remove him and eventually forced him out. So you're you're absolutely right. It would be treated differently and very seriously the reason why people are going along with it is twofold one is on the international stage. You have hesitancy because of geopolitics. So you know. Boris johnson would condemn this. If it was happening in west africa he won't condemn it in the us because he's worried about the blowback from the trump administration the last seventy days and on the domestic stage. The republican party is going along with it because they've made a calculation unfortunately that they think that it's best to keep the base fired up and also they don't want to alienate the base by breaking with trump before. They think he's had his time to sort of run his course so they've made a very cynical strategy Part of their game plan. And it's as i say it's doing immense damage because a majority of republicans now something between seventy-five and eighty five percent of republicans. Believe this election was stolen. Despite every piece of evidence pointing to this being one of the most well managed and well executed elections in modern american history. So at what point does it. Democratically elected leader become a dictator. It's a very good question. It's a gray area. It's it's basically win. They have taken power and failed to relinquish it in accordance with the democratic process. And so this is an instance where if trump were to stay in power illegally then yes of course We would have to stop talking about the. Us has democracy. What we have now is an attempt right. I believe that the democratic institutions of the us even though they have been battered under the last four years in our very damaged are strong enough that in this instance it won't prove successful and i think if we do actually game out the idea of him somehow trying to stay in the white house after january twentieth wouldn't the. Us shut down. There would be there would be riots. There would be violence. There would be general strikes. I mean it's it's unfathomable because even though that chunk of the republican party the hards believed that trump's somehow one or that the election was manipulated. And they're wrong about that. Eighty percent of the country knows joe biden one which is depressing. It's only eighty percent because it's quite clear that he won but it still overwhelming and therefore it's impossible to imagine Trump stained power without enormous backlash to that. And i don't think the republicans would actually go along with it once you get to that stage. I think they're indulging him because they think it's a ploy but i don't think that they would let him stay in power beyond inauguration day and i'm guessing that also republicans don't want to alienate the voter base. That may well get them to senate seats in georgia on the fifth of january. Yeah it's an interesting strategy this because of just in terms of pure it's obviously extraordinarily cynical but if we're evaluating interest from the merits of strategy as effectiveness there's a potential for blowback here right if you tell people that the elections are stolen from you in places like georgia. There's a risk that people in georgia who are republicans. Don't vote right. I mean they have. They have to get their base out and so even though they might be fired up about the the narrative that the republicans are selling them the narrative selling them as saying don't matter because they get rigged anyway which is again not true but some people believe that to be true and you wonder if on january fifth which is not a normal time for people to be voting. Usually special elections have low turnout whether the democratic base which is going to be very fired up for this could have a boost from the fact that some georgia republicans will say. Forget about it. I i don't wanna vote. Because i've heard all these conspiracy theories that my vote won't be counted anyway so you mentioned the danger for democracy an and as he also said one presumes that eventually he will have to go but how much damage can inflict before he does. I mean one area would seem to be how we view democracy in the future and would perhaps appoint to a changing of the constitution. Which really only has a couple of paragraphs on the office of the president. And i guess it relies. It's soft guidelines isn't it relies on on the good nature. The good faith of the president to to behave in a presidential way. Maybe that needs to change. Yeah i mean. I think the story Of the post trump era could be one. That's very optimistic. For democracy depending on how the senate seat elections go Because as you rightly point out what he's done is exposed. How much of american politics relies on norms and the sort of good faith that people in elected office will obey those norms. And what could happen as happened. After watergate with richard nixon is an attempt to codify right into law the norms so that they can't be up for discussion and i think this would be a very positive development that being said he can do enormous damage. He's got seventy four days in office and you know he is poisoning Republicans in particular in terms of their minds thinking about democracy. And that matters. I mean you have to have both parties believe in the legitimacy of the other party when they went elections if you want to have a democracy survive and right now that is not the case. And i you know. It's the first time in at least modern american history. That's been true so we do need to pay very close attention to what he's doing in terms those soft aspects of democracy. Now he's mark espa the defense secretary since then. There's been a run of firings and resignations at the top of the pentagon. John now has his people in place. And he's ousted those whose who would defy will. What might he try and achieve here. I mean could. He bring troops home from afghanistan in time for christmas. As long said he would thereby further destabilizing the region could he provoke conflict with iran leaving biden with a huge issue to deal with. Yeah this is one of the mysteries. I mean trump. You usually can understand trump pretty well by looking at ego narcissism personal interest financial interests. The question here is whether that explains these moves. As well so one narrative of course would be espa stood up to him on various things like deploying the military to quash protests and said. I'm not going to do that. And this is payback for him to fire him but there is some other stuff going on. That makes me wonder if there's more to this story like for example. A series of arms deals that have seemed to be arms transfers. It seemed to be concluded with various middle east Dictatorships and the question is is trump trying to do something to us foreign policy or is he trying to provide favors to countries that he may have future business interest in because his financial empire is going to be under enormous when his debt gets called in after he leaves the white house and there could be some Interest for him in trying to curry favor with some foreign governments in which towers may sprout up in the coming years. I don't know but Tinkering with national security drain a already volatile. Lame duck period is extremely dangerous. And it's not just the firings it's also the fact because he refuses to accept biden's transition biden hasn't started getting the presidential daily brief so he's not up to speed on all the threats facing and all of that means that it's less likely that biden will be as ready as possible on day one and that is something that should not be a partisan issue it should be for all americans to care about and of course he's not getting the funds that are meant to be released for the transition team either and there's a deadline for the legal challenges and as you say it's unlikely any of them will stick to to the degree that they changed results. So how and. When is this going to end well. Presumably what will happen is the certification deadline which is coming up in a couple of weeks for the various states. will come and go with certifications so that you know the new times called or email. All of the secretaries of state who are in charge of elections in in all fifty states and one hundred percent of them said that there was no fraud in their states and in fact trump's lawyers are saying the same thing in court when they're pressed right. The judges are are you. Are you alleging fraud. And they're having to say no because the lawyers actually have to inhabit reality so at some point the results will be certified and once that happens. It's a legally binding certification. That trump has lost the election so i think that the delusion will increasingly become a fringe view. It will still exist. Trump may never accept that he lost but as long as he's out of the white house on january twentieth limits the amount of damage he can do because it will be the end of his time in real power. Brian thank you very much indeed.

I go back and listen again. You can reach out to the gas All good and that is all here to help you succeed and being more profitable and successful. Today is no exception. My guest today is andrea albright andrea. Who is recognized as a thought. Leader publisher is on a mission to create the next movement for authors and evolve the publishing industry. She's not just the publisher she's a legacy maker. Andrea has become the author of twenty five bucks reaching tens of millions worldwide in over forty countries. Now she's taken her passion for helping author sign the same success by publishing books with meaning. Thanks so much for joining me andrea hello alot. Thank you for having me wonderful to be here. I am thrilled to have you here. we're gonna be talking about marketing and growing business in an all that happy stuff. And i i'd like to start with what sorts of personal obstacles do you think entrepreneurs face when they're starting a business. Well obviously there are a lot of obstacles which is why the success rate of businesses staying in business is only about fifteen percents within five years which is really crazy to think that eighty five percent of businesses will be out of business before five years and so obviously there are lots of obstacles or else we wouldn't have these kinds of statistics. You know the beginning of a business is it's like the baby you know it's got very few resources doesn't have a lot of credibility or traction and doesn't have a history or a legacy all it has is the vision and the vision is. What an entrepreneur. Start a business and i. It's the moving out that visit why entrepreneurs fail especially in the startup phase. Really okay. So so they lose that vision. What happens there. Well you start a business. You see a possibility for something better. You are either innovating. An industry a product service at you. Think you know what i can do it better and so it really comes from a vision but what happens when you get into the day to day business. You'd because so overwhelmed with paying your cable at dealing with clients and changes in the economy and competition and so all these things began to weigh on the entrepreneur and the entrepreneur actually starts to treat their business like a job and that is the worst thing an entrepreneur can ever do because it is only the visionary the ones who are able to see beyond the today drudgery and the day today even. You're now the visionaries are ones who can see into the future. See where the market is evolving. And make sure that they stay on the cutting edge. Okay so. I signed that. So interesting i think it is so easy to get stuck just in doing and not staying above the fray so that you can really be directing it. It's i can see. How do you explain it. I can see how that could be How entrepreneurs lose that vision in quite get it when you originally when you set up but that makes perfect sense to me. It's unfortunate. yes. And i've been an entrepreneur for seventeen years now and i have seen over ten thousand entrepreneurs start a business and the amount of people who are still in business. It's just very rare very few and the statistics show. That will what happens. Okay the ones who have lasted are the ones who are the visionaries who didn't get caught up in the changes in the economy or a switch in the government know all of these things that people use as excuses for why they're going out of business. The ones who are truly innovating are so far ahead of the game that we saw all of this coming in some way or another and so we've been able to innovate. This is the time of innovation. And if your business has failed during this time now it's time to start a new one of the best history is start a business.

Is Etsy Stock a Buy?

"So. For dozens of listeners, let me just say up front. We are recording this early because I'm taking Tuesday's a personal day. So hopefully, the market is not doing Tuesday morning what it did late in the day, Sunday. And with so many companies reporting this week we thought we would do a a more detailed preview on three companies that are reporting later this week, and let's start with Oetzi. He's going to report after the bell on Wednesday. It's their third quarter report. This is a stock that was in the low thirties in March it's now around one hundred, forty dollars a share. What should folks be watching when it comes to? Yeah. You know it's really funny. I didn't realize that he had been on quite such tear. I guess just had really been paying that close attention to my portfolio and then one day open it up and I saw hey, wow, that's a nice little surprise. That's the best kind of surprise you guys have been doing. Okay. So I will say like first and foremost the dip when it comes to earning season in tweeted this out earlier and I think it's just something that I always want to remind myself. Because we get very hung up in the expectations game in for me. It's always. More beneficial to pay attention to to management and management hitting the marks that they said, not what the streets expecting right I mean management's should in theory the business better than anyone. So I think they're going to provide a little bit more of a realistic outlook and I think it's going to be a little bit more line with the way we invest. And so typically I go through for the companies that do sit guidance and offer guidance I I, look for the things that they say so. Evoke back to just a quarter ago. I mean the language in the call was. Was One of optimism yet caution, and they were really taking things one quarter time. So they did offer you know estimates for four some of the metrics that matter this quarter that gross merchandise sales, which is the the amount of money that's going through that network in the range of two point two to two point five billion that would be anywhere from eighty two to one hundred, percent one, hundred, ten percent up from from the same year ago looking for revenue of three, hundred, sixty, six, million to four, hundred, twenty, six, million would represent a range of growth between eighty five percent in one hundred and fifteen percent. and. So those are the things you know I look at first and foremost similar to just the sheer numbers. Now I think with that see another metric that really matters I mean this is this the Nice thing about the network it's a two sided network with buyers and sellers and they benefit from both. But if you look back. From. Just, Corrigo I mean they reported three point one, four, million active sellers sixty point three, million active. Now that represented growth from two point, eight, million and forty, seven, point seven, million respectively from the previous quarter. So you can see as the corridors go along. This is a business that continues to really benefit from the move towards ECOMMERCE right? I mean e commerce, it's not just an Amazon world anymore in in certainly been proving itself to be not only a great place for people to buy things but a great place for people to sell things and I've been really impressed with. The metrics the past couple of quarters in what they're selling in masks I mean it is just amazing. This is like the place to get a mask and all sorts of different kinds and like you know. All. Sorts of different types of our work involved with these just really interesting to see. This has been such a such a place. For people to go out there in really really sell something that clearly everybody needs in some capacity right now. But Yeah I think that those are the first things that I pay attention to when it to and. Just kind of get an idea of how they see this holiday season the shaping up as

TicWatch Pro 3 GPS Specifications And Features

"Bought stuff from them before as well. Now, speaking to buying stuff. Justin a couple ago on the show was involved in a kickstarter program for the tick watch and you know it was kind of interesting to hear how you were. You were buying into this this technology and when they finally got to production, you get one and you got one we're pretty happy with it. Yeah. Yeah. So the tick watches a, it's a smart watch. It's it's it's GonNa take it was designed to really take on the Apple Watch. I think actually at the time they did it I don't think he even the Apple Watch. No, it was. It was out there. But yeah. So the first take watch came out it was okay. It was it was it did what it did, but it was slow. It was clunky was big. Then they came out with the tick watch to came out tick watch pro and the tick watch pro to, and so they've been successful as a company. They're still releasing new products and they're not doing kickstarter anymore they're full-fledged company now. They just recently announced the new tick watch pro three. GPS. When I heard about this, this would be my third watch that I purchased from them because I did purchase the tick watch to again it was a little bit clunky. But I did decide to go ahead and purchase the tick watch pro three GPS model. This one by far is going to be the best watch they've ever released because I've. I've already read the reviews on it from people that have gotten advanced models. This is the first watch on the market regardless of who makes it it's the first smartwatch on the market to use the new qualcomm snapdragon wear forty, one, hundred processor. This thing is lightning fast. It also has a seventy two hour active battery or a two week. To two week standby battery on the LCD screen. So you've got a great extended battery because mine right now, I can barely get twenty four hours out of it and I've got to charge it. You also have a lot more. Health and fitness tracking features. They do also come with some things like take calm or. I should say so if you're feeling stressed, you just hit the tick Zenit helps you calm down. Eve also. got like tick, tick a tick oxygen or something like that. Basically, it tells you your oxygen level fitness tracking things like that does run where a West however, they've taken their the WAIROA estimated their own. You can still run where OS APPS on it. So if I want to get Google messages but I want to get out look if I want to other things like that I can put that on my watch, but I also can use the tick watch features. And also it is faster like I said, and it's also sleeker. It's smaller it's thinner and it's more lightweight. So this goes for two ninety nine. And I did get it with a discount if you go to mob Voi-, Dot Com M., O. B.. Dot Com voi- dot Com. That's the maker of the tick watch. You can go there. You can get it if you're new user like if you never bought a Dick locher before fifteen percent off and also if you use the add onto chrome called honey now we've talked about honey in the past right honey is a an add on that tries all these extra coupon codes. If you use honey, you can also get an extra fifteen dollars off. So out the DOOR A. To nine thousand, nine watch after shipping and everything came to to fifty nine for me. That's not bad. Now, what if you're an apple user? Can you still tie this into your operating system and no actually you can't it's either going to be. You have to have an apple watch with an apple product you're going to have to have an android phone with watch I mean just one of the other, just the same as you can't have an apple watch paired with an android. But. I want to mention just a couple of numbers real quick hundred and fifty percent GP increase since the last model eighty-five CPU, and memory eighty-five percent CPU and memory increase and a twenty five percent power save over the previous model. So if you're into smart watches and you don't necessarily want to get the Samsung Galaxy, watch which I think is going for three ninety nine. Checkout Tick Watch T. I see watch and you can get a mob Voi- dot Com I don't think I'm pronouncing that right but it's.

John Gorman Discusses the Use of Opportunity Zones to Address Social Determinants

"To the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David. Intra Cosso. During this podcast saw discussed efforts to address social determinants of health with John Gorman chairman of the nightingale partners and founder and former Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. John Welcome to the program. Thanks David. Great to be here. especially with another native DC guy here most welcome John's by is, of course, posted on the podcast website. Briefly on background, the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has exposed. The country's failed to adequately address the social determinants of health. Generally defining health access and quality education, economic circumstances, food security, social conditions, and environmental factors. It is estimated that where people live work and socialize determines as much as sixty percent of their health status. Whereas formal medical care accounts for just ten percent. For example concerning. Circumstances forty years of wage stagnation among lower income earners has left forty five percent of working age Americans. With either no health care insurance for insurance without a pocket expenses so high. They avoid sinking care went for example, they developed covid nineteen related symptoms. Healthcare policy makers have slowly begun to take an interest in addressing sto ages as a way to improve health delivery by increasing increasing appropriate utilization and reducing costs. For example, Medicare, advantage plans which enroll more than one third of all Medicare beneficiaries have recently been given regulatory authority to offer Ma benificiary supplemental benefits beyond medical care such as mail deliveries, home modifications, and Personal Care Services. With beginning, discuss, addressing, social determine, specifically use of what are termed opportunities zones. Again. John Gorman. So Jon with that as background. Louis. Begin by asking if you could provide a brief overview of nightingale. Sure David Nangle partners is one of these weird opportunities zone funds that came out of trump's big tax giveaway bill It was actually Cory Booker's program that was designed to encourage investment in real estate and disadvantaged communities and I was sitting on my ass retired last spring and got a notification that the irs had just completely revamped the rags to allow opportunities own capital to be used not just for real estate investment. But also for leases one portly for working capital or for meeting the business requirements of a new company inside one of the nine thousand roughly nine thousand opportunities zones around the country and those opportunities owns David are all. Severely, economically disadvantaged and more importantly medically underserved, and because the irs allowed now opportunities own capital to be used for working capital for meeting business requirements. That's what opened the door to allow us to use opportunities on Capitol to make large scale investments in social determinants of health intervention. So nightingale partners with insurers with health systems with large medical groups to finance design launch, and where necessary execute on our goals to improve. The quality of care for vulnerable populations. In this country, a lot of people like to say and I love it that we packed a Republican billionaire tax shelter in order to improve care for black drought people on that gets me up every morning. Sir Thank you. So this as you noted, this was a provision in the December seventeen tax bill. Specifically page one, hundred, and thirty. This was picked up this previous legislation as you noted, that as you mentioned senator from New Jersey Cory Booker but also the South Carolina African American Republican, the only one Tim Scott. So this is picked up in the tax bill previous legislation and you mentioned the nine thousand. So these are census tracts that meet this low income community criteria wrote and then explain to me. Governors than have to select a discrete number. That could benefit from this. Tax Advantage program is that correct doubts correct and there was a little bit of mischief but some of the governors in the designation of some of those areas and there's been, you know some gamesmanship with this story like you know Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey is. Used an opportunity zone fund open up frigging LAUNDROMAT. In Asbury, Park with Bruce, springsteen cats not the kind of stuff that we do. I'm not surprised to hear that I guess the former governor is a is obsessed with. Mr Asbury Park and again just so on. Understand better more clearly, this is the tax advantage here is that by investing the capital gains on your investment, you can avoid paying the. Twenty three percent the capital gains tax and that basically. Sure go ahead, go ahead. Well, basically, the way it works is that if you invest money or capital gains in and opportunities zone and you leave it in for at least ten years, not only is the initial investment completely tax free but then all of the proceeds that you make on that investment are completely tax free. So high net worth individuals. And family offices large corporations the generate large amounts of capital gains love this program, and indeed it opened up about six point two trillion dollars in available capital based on the amount of capital gains that we generate in our economy. So of that amount, David Roughly a hundred billion dollars has been invested thus far into opportunities zones off. The roughly eight months programs operate. And again, the idea is the long leave the money and means completely tax free for ten years out of step seven years you pay are you're eighty five percent excuse but I know that that number surprises me would you say this this this one, hundred, billion, his far more than was estimated when the legislation was passed. No I think it's probably rolling out slower than A lot of folks had hoped and as you can imagine, the vast majority of those deals that have been done thus far has been around real estate and real estate redevelopment certainly in the healthcare sector I think we're still the only firm out here. That's a healthcare focus opportunities on fund it. You know it we've been the only ones to my knowledge. So we're you know we're granted here, but we have yet even break a billion, but we're that's our goal.

What Are SPACs and Should You Invest in Them?

"Now, why do spags exist? A primary reason is the reverse mergers that occur was back with a publicly traded company purchasing a private company is in some ways simpler and easier way for private companies to become publicly traded compared with doing their own initial public offering. One Reason, the appetite for IPO's varies. There are some times where markets are more receptive to IPO's, and that's when a lot of private companies startup companies want to go public. Other Times not so much with a back. It's already public. and. So it's a way for a private company to become public without having to go through the road shows and much of the paperwork and legal hassle of going public. Another reason is often when a startup goes public doesn't initial public offering they lock up period for existing shareholders. It's not necessarily great press for a newly public company to have its founders selling a lot of their shares. With us back, they have the cash already raised and it's easier for founders and other principles of the private company to be able to liquidate more of their shares in the company. The other thing with initial public offering is often times money is left on the table. The underwriters try to price the initial public offering at ten to fifteen percent discount to the fair value of the company. But what that price is very difficult to determine and oftentimes after the initial public offering in the first few hours the IPO jump significantly in price, which means the private company didn't get that money that was money that was trading in the secondary market. It wasn't money that flowed to that private company is part of that public offering. With specs, there's a negotiated price. So the private company knows what they're getting. They know what the valuation is and so they potentially can get more money. How then do specs work? Well specs also need to raise capital so they do an initial public offering. It's usually combined with one common share plus a warrant or a fraction of a warrant, and what a warrant is gives the holder the right to buy more stock at a fixed price at a later date. It's an incentive for SPAC holders to potentially get more shares of the company wants that target is identified. The initial public offering is help for the back and at least eighty, five percent of the proceeds needs to go into an escrow account for future acquisitions. In practice, it's closer to ninety seven percent of the proceeds with three percent held in reserve for underwriting fees for the initial public offering operating expenses for this back to cover due diligence cost legal accounting et CETERA. Most of the money goes into this escrow account, which is then invested in government bonds. So before the acquisition, it's fairly risk free investment. Most of the time, the specs are issued at A. Price of ten dollars per share. In theory, it should stay about ten dollars per share because it's just an escrow account invested in government bonds and shareholders of this they don't know what the potential acquisition target will be. In practice, we're seeing specs sell for more than the IPO price because holders believe the management team of back is going to identify a very attractive company that will be profitable to the SPAC shareholders. So sometimes, they can bid up the price of this back. For example, that back that pershing square bill ackman's company came out with July is trading about twenty percent above its IPO price. The specs sponsors have a specified period to identify a potential target. Typically it's about two years and if they're not able to identify an acquisition and close an acquisition, then the trust is liquidated and the money in escrow account is return his shareholders. If the back sponsors do identify potential target firm, then they make an announcement, it's called the announcement date. Then the back shareholders are notified that there is a potential acquisition target. At that point that's back sponsors perform additional due diligence negotiate a structure of the acquisition. The SEC has to review the terms of the acquisition because the private company will be made public. And then there's a proxy vote for the shareholders of this back and they are deciding to issues. Whether they approve the acquisition or disprove, they don't want to Spec to go forward with it. The. Second thing that they are voting on whether they wanted to liquidate their shares in this back they have an opportunity to get out at the net asset value of the trust, which is the value held in the escrow account divided by the number of shares. Outstanding. If more than fifty percent of the shareholders approved the acquisition and less than twenty percent of the shareholders vote for liquidation. Then the transaction is approved and the target firm is listed on Stock Exchange. If more than fifty percent, approve it but more than twenty percent want their money back. Then this back is also liquidated.

Guild Esports is Paying David Beckham How Much Money!?

"Over the summer, we've been reporting on a new sports organization or technically a rebranded older organization. The Lord's E. Sports became guilty sports and welcome David Beckham on as a CO owner q a lot of mainstream fanfare including on this podcast. Then they listen to the organization on the London Stock Exchange and that felt like a bold choice considered very few eastwards organizations are. Actually publicly traded companies mostly because they don't make any money yet but guilty sports was able to raise twenty million pounds at evaluation of about forty million pounds and today we learned where most of those pounds are going to end up going thanks to buy a SEC at the East sports observer his report which I will link below says before Beckham sign on as a CO owner, the organization entered into an influencer agreement with Beckham. It's a five year deal where the former soccer star will become. The face of guilty sports. Exchange will be paid out fifteen million pounds or about twenty million dollars beckons. Actual investment in the company is about three hundred grand. Beckham also gets fifteen percent of all merchandise and sponsorship revenues throughout this five year deal. Wow. This is a tough sell. So now you have a publicly traded eastwards organization that competes in just a few titles, Rocky League and fever being the main to. Is Sports organizations do not make that much money even when they can take home one, hundred percent of all merchants sponsors sales guild will be operating with eighty five percent of those revenue streams. Now, the organization is on the hook for twenty million dollars paid out increasing annual installments over the next five years plus fifteen percent of those two primary revenue streams. In addition to the twenty million dollars, they raised the public listing guild also raised additional six million dollars in outside capital. But the public offering bullet is really only able to be shot. What's now the stock will have to work on its own merits if they want people to continue pumping money into the organization. And given the history of publicly traded eastwards companies. That's not really that likely to happen.
