Is It Time to Get Bullish on Banks?
"Welcome back to fast money banks catching a bid today in the back of a pair of upgrades, Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo. But the group is still underperforming the rest of the market this year and it's still about twenty five percent off of twenty twenty highs. Karen actually bought some banks today which ones Karen and why. Well. As you know I am long. Bang. Same Long JP Morgan Citi, Bank Wells Fargo and Bank of America. But I added to GP Morgan today and this is really a trading position. So I had calls and call spreads just expiring October Sixteenth. So I'm really just playing for earnings and I think it's setting up well into earnings because the stocks have traded terribly they've actually been a hedge on my making money on any other parts of the portfolio they kind of hedge that out but I think that expectations are so low now that. The. Bars Low I. think there's a good chance they feed. PHYA fairmount and if they don't, I don't think there's that much more downside here. But I'm just playing really for the short term I. Think this is too low for earnings and it's coming up October thirteenth they think they'll all be that week. You know I know you you saw this Wall Street Journal today Dan but I think that the headline of the essence of the headline really captures the that the bank's Love the markets in twenty twenty but the markets don't love the banks. Yeah I haven't listened. It seemed like an easy trade most of the year to fade every rally in the banks and they're having. been too many dramatic ones. The massively outperformed the broader market here to me. They were showing some relative strength, the beginning of September. But then there are no shortage of headlines I think the banking it goes back to some of the things that we were just talking about the rates where they are go the exposure to. loan-loss defaults and bankruptcies that sort of thing I mean they have a lot of exposure there and I think they're more reflective of main street, then Wall Street, and if you look at the performance from the investment banks who've been benefiting from all from the lower rates and all the stimulus monetary and everything, there's a huge spread there too. So to me, I think you could see Bankamerica back at Twenty I. think you see JP Morgan back in eighty I think you could see Morgan Stanley. Back Forty Bucks I think that they have one more leg lower, but to Karen point that mid October week when all of those banks that make up maybe half the weight of the XL laugh report is there a trade there I just don't know if you start that trade today on September twenty third for October sixteen
Philadelphia Leaders Say Homeless Camps Are ‘Untenable'
"Officials are telling protesters to leave their encampments in Fairmount and North Philadelphia. For the district councilman who's who represents both neighborhoods. Those camps can't be shut down fast enough. Okay, one W. City Hall bureau chief Pat Lobe report. Chancel President Darryl Clark sees a paradox in housing advocates occupying land that could transform the quality of life of a black community that has suffered generations of disinvestment. The North Philadelphia and Campen is on the site of a planned $52 million project. It's a supermarket, a health centre and housing issue and cried black lives matter. You know, I kind of think this fits that mold on development that deals with all those disparities that is being built by an African American developer and Campen organizer's argued too much of the land is for parking, and there should be more than 92 units of housing. They have allies on City Council. Freshmen members. Kendra Brooks and Jamie got Ta say they think the encampment should stay. But Clark, who has represented Strict for 20 years. They're blocking a development already long overdue. Having minorities be involved in development and the minority communities have full access to all the things that are in other communities.

Louisa Thomas on Writing About Tennis
"I'm delighted to be joined here by a longtime listener first-time guests overdue guests. Really I think Lewis Thomas. I'm so excited to be here. I am a very long time listener. And Longtime Meyer so bucket lists for me for us. We're very excited. Why would we see? Fairmount is third like I remember. You said to me couple years ago like why almost like why am I not on and I had no answer your only people. I didn't think whatever like stooped our level. Pretty much. But now that you are here. I am delighted that you here and we're GONNA do a pretty male baggy centric type show with you here. We got a bunch listener questions on twitter on e Mail on our patron on. And we'll go through these. I JUST WANNA start against with how you got into tennis. Bitten what your tenants sort of writing. Arc has been leading all the way up to we can skip speed ahead to this version of the most recent story did which I think was on Kim. Clijsters must recent tennis centered leader for the New Yorker Short version of your of how you got here. A short version is that I was a pretty mediocre high school tennis player but absolutely loved it and stop playing pretty much when I got to college and a little bit after and then picked up a racquet again. A few years after college started playing With a friend of mine and I just loved it and it was like the greatest procrastination thing ever. I had actually had a book coming out and I was like filled with anxiety. And so I dealt with this by playing tennis for like it took like four hours. I don't like several times because we would I would go to Brooklyn. You know like an hour span telling you basically I was avoiding work and everything else and out of that. are as us to rate For the Paris Review blog about. Us Open that year. And I had so much fun doing it and it was actually a really kind of a revelation for me. I really felt in some ways that I found kind of voice that I hadn't really been able to. Yes it was it was. It was both new and felt so much like me and there was something about tennis about sports in particular. I'm sorry something about sports in general but tennis in particular that really kind of sports sports so tennis is really kind of my like my origin. Story I'd I'd worked at the sports section actually in high school but that was a both a long time before and I wasn't a writer in the same way so this was really kind of and it felt experimental felt fresh felt new felt it was none of those things really but I felt like I was doing something that no one else is doing and that this was like me. You know that this was something that I I sort of was bringing into the world and It was really exciting and if it was in the sense that Alaska was my voice after that I did a little bit more for them and then this great land the sports website owned by ESPN started by. Bill Simmons started up right before Wimbledon. Actually and they asked me to do. A couple of stories not became kind of became contributor. Really just writing about tennis. I and then I started Raymond other sports and then I started working for them fulltime and became an editor there and then by the end of doing all sports not all sports but many sports tennis was still kind of my Mitra. Love unless you're gonna Cap Cross country skiing by to write that your first term it was was. Us openwork clijsters one. That's as good as well ahead into the future. So since then. Yeah you're right. The New Yorker now seeing Kim Clijsters come back. What did you think I think permits? Everyone who I've talked to WHO watch. It was super impressed by her ball striking. Which is like in even though she lost the match and was almost off it badly. I mean she was down six to four or three or four zero. In the second set fought back have a tie-break so in some ways you could be like that close but she's playing Mugabe's who just made Australian Open final had really nothing to lose in this match and played really well and just had a lot of a lot of things may people go. Whoa Mabel we'll realize why she was a special player for so long. I think I mean I actually even from the start of the match is one of those matches where the scoreline wasn't necessarily reflective of what was going on in the individual games sort of competitive and a lot of games that she was losing she obviously has big weakness. Game. She's not as in shape as she probably wants to beach. Her Serb was kind of a disaster at times by Yeah her boss. Striking was just thrilling. I mean it was so pure it was so I mean I like completely fell in love with her and fell in love with the sport. All over again it actually I mean. Even her announcement had summoned a lot of these. Kinda had made me think about my own kind of start in tennis writing sports writing in general and it became even more intense while I was watching her and I was just. I was just happy in a way that was really uncomplicated. And which was really interesting too because I actually had a lot of complicated feelings about her coming back and it was just so it was like such a pleasure to watch her and just to see someone kind of seize the moment and some sort of Lia really kind of. Yeah uncomplicated right. What are your complicated feelings about her back? Then I generally think that coming back when he said this. Mike feelings aren't really about her coming back. I mean she should do whatever she wants to do in. This is clearly what she wants to be doing. And that's like got on her. You know my complicated feelings are only insofar as like you know. I'm also trying to negotiate my own kind of ambition versus raising a small child. How and the expectations are being placed upon me you know from various sides and trying to figure out what what is it that. I really want to be doing and how do I WANNA be privatizing my life and and in some ways one of the things I find really kind of inspiring about her is that she's actually. Her story is more complicated than a normal kind of like. It's always an Serena Williams story where she knew she was gonna WanNa come back and it was just about making that work in a way that worked for her. I mean she. She left the game she came back. She left the game again. She came back. And I find the idea that you could have. You could sort of take a long view of your career even in a career that is necessarily short like sports that you can sort of view it as a kind of multidimensional thing where you can have different ambitions at different times and have different ways of judging success and have different kind of approaches to be to be really inspiring. Also hard you know. I mean because that's not how we normally talk about successor. How's how's IT philosopher clijsters? I think we'll have one question about her but this my last question her. How's it influenced you being a relatively new mom. In this sort of era women's tennis where motherhood has been a big sugar running storyline. From as Aranka to Serena to clijsters now like what is how. How does that? Because you've written about all three of those women I'm guessing sent in this time. What is that been like? Having your own personal life and of it informs how you see these stories and see the narratives rally stories for better or worse by life always informs. Whatever I'm writing about but I'm also not a person who's injecting my life story into I mean. I did a little bit in the classrooms piece. But I don't usually do that and I have a little bit ready. Mutt Serena but usually I try and step back from that. But certainly there's always like an undercurrent a kind of is to think of it as a secret story. There's something sort of like some You know wellspring of feeling or some motivation that I have to bring into a story. Otherwise it's just a it's not mine. You know that thing. I was talking about my voice like I need to be tapping into whatever that is to take that voice And for some of these stories about mothers obviously it is a little bit closer to what I've been going through but it's also again more complicated because I think we have a tendency to generalize a lot when especially we're talking about something like motherhood would it's such a particularly unique experience. I mean at least to prove my point house at least in my experience has been particularly in unique but of course it's one of these things that is on the one hand like is obviously not universal. But it's something Millions and millions of billions of people go through like trying to figure out how to balance these different things and that's just how to balance them. But how you know embrace them in different ways but at the same time like what Serena wants is different than what clijsters wants. And that's different than what as wrinkle on. And how do you do sort of justice to those stories without kind of flattening them or distorting them or you know assuming one thing for one and a different thing for another and I think can be really challenging. But that's also part of the important thing about being a writer in some ways as sort of realizing the variety of human experience for sure. Very nice to

"Andrea Bernstein she is the Co Co host of the podcast trump inc.. And she's got a new book out. It's called American oligarchs the Kushner's trump's and the marriage of money and power. It's it's about The trump's in the KUSHNER's in marriage money power take is what this book will not make you feel better about the world crate crate. As my experience reading it did not. I did not feel more optimistic. Afterwards is I do think though it is a large segment of the last year's media psycho. We haven't actually had anyone on. Who's just sort of gone? Full trump in their reporting getting except Maggie Haberman. Of course. Yeah well I mean the thing. Is She actually hasn't gone. Full trump in her reporting she has been reporting about political corruption corruption and business in New York. For years and years she was at the observer for a very long time and now is at WNYC and that's kind of been her beat so like her beat became on this corner national story in this sort of and then you'll hear about in the interview but basically I think right after the election she felt felt like I know this world that now is everyone's world and I have some Responsibility get in there and one thing I will say about the book which is also true. The podcast is I feel like Despite everyone in the world being on this story it feels sort of random a lot of the time time and the book really grounds what is happening and how Donald Trump became president in like decades and decades of family history the and New York history and tristate history and it was the first time that it felt like cohesive to me. Well you've answered in my questions. If you're looking to answer other people's questions maybe start a queue in a newsletter with mail chimp. They make it easy to start any Dang Kinda in a newsletter. You want You won't even have to start paying until a certain number of people subscribed so dip a toe dip that. Tell Jim now. Here's Max with Andrea Bernstein. Hi Andrea Hi so great to be here. Thank you for coming to do the PODCAST. Can I say that it's the thing that the trump team has most wanted to do was to talk with you. Well I will say that That's great and a little intimidating but There's one piece of that which is not surprising. which is that so I like emails a fairmount from people who think that they would be good guests on the podcasts Taylor like I you know who I think should be on the show is meek and I got a different one from your co host? Who remained said I think she'd have Andrea on the show? But it wasn't just like hey I think should have Andrea on. It's pretty interesting stuff. She doing he had a like a real like Tower Bernstein like the nine pillars. He didn't send that to me exactly would then I followed him and was definitely. We should do this and I was like. What do you think I should ask? And then he seventy nine pillars and it's rare that someone both nominates a colleague of theirs to come on the show and has such a like a a clear way of thinking about you've never met Elliott out of the blue. I just emailed me out of the blue and then put together this thing and I think it might help us talk talk about the book a little bit. The first pillar Bernstein is Everyone wants to help you. CEOS public information officers other journalists rival outlets people on the street. Anyone could be a source. That just don't know it yet. Your job is to let them know. Yeah anybody can be a source and it is. I mean one of the interesting things about reporting on the trump's in the Kushner says they seem so distant far off there in the White House but here in in this area the New York metropolitan area. Almost everybody knows one of the families and has had a personal experience with them so in many cases this is all I had to do was tell people. I'm writing a book and people said. Oh well I happen to know so and so and maybe so and so can help you so many people were afraid to talk to me so I wouldn't say that everybody wanted to help but it's true anybody could help. That was one of the questions I had reading the book which was this is among if not the hardest beat in the world. Lots of people are covering these folks. Lots of people are trying to figure out how Donald Trump's business works and I'm interested in how you get the main figures in this story to engage gauge with you when dozens of reporters are asking these questions. And then how you find the people who no one has talked to yet and then the third part of that question I guess is is like how do you find something new when everyone's trying to find the same thing so I mean one of the things that gave me pause was not an obvious thing because is one of the ways that I have covered. Corruption is by happily looking in the dark corners where nobody else is looking when we WNYC Z.. And when I started covering the bridge gate scandal with Chris Christie I had covered transportation so when they said that they had realigned the lanes to have a traffic study. I was like that is definitely definitely not a traffic study so I knew immediately. I knew immediately that there was politics and I had covered the port quarter therapy and I knew how to extract information from them so I cry. Let's go back. Yeah how do you extract information from the Port Authority so so one of the big ways you extract information from the poor thrice by showing up so you go to the meetings and you ask the questions but also I serve. They don't like to respond to freedom of information requests but the thing about the port authority is a state agency which is controlled by two governors. So in in any situation where there is a tension. Somebody is going to want to help you. Because they think it's going to thwart their other side so that is one of the ways that there were people who were unhappy with the way the other side was doing things that they would be willing to talk but then at the end of the deaths of everybody wants to talk especially when you're an honest broker occur and they understand that you're going to be fair about things so persistence is another thing. Just sorta hanging in there until people realize you're not going away and it's better to talk to you. visit potentially naive leave question but how important how big a part of that process is being able to suss out people's motivations that way and play to them. Well I think that you know in All journalism you're always looking for where's the oversight whereas the tension. Where's the places where people might disagree? So it's one of the reasons sway former employees organizations tend to be really great sources and there's a lot of people that really know how to work-linked Dan rea well and can find out everybody that used to work at a company and I. I don't do this so much but I mean like if I work with or they'll just call a list of people you get a bunch of names in the just call call so looking at those sources of tension is one way to extract information but anyway just to get back to your main question about some six everybody. Nobody else was covering it so it wasn't my natural inclination but also I did feel like I had a long view on this world and and also because I've been covering corruption in New York and New Jersey politics and also national politics. I had covered six presidential campaign so I just felt like I knew to all the elements of this particular world so I thought okay. Even though a lot of people are looking at it I need to look at it because I have a perspective on it. That is is not precisely the same as anybody else's so that was one reason why I thought I should do it. Even though it's a sandbox at everybody is playing in but one of the things that I really discovered as I went along is that most people don't read things multiple Arabi things very quickly so you can find out so many things by reading up to the end.
Rivals in Montreal's Bagel Wars unite to fight for their ovens
"I think of Montreal's I think of Bagels if you've ever been inside one of the city's iconic Bagel res I want you to close your eyes and think about it right now I bet you can smell it. Today's story though goes beyond the smells and tastes. The BAGEL is woven into the fabric of Montreal's cultural and religious history and to institutions institutions in particular at the heart of all of these family businesses make bagels in a way unique to the city. They're famous for it and they do it using huge wood burning ovens and they're located right in the middle of residential neighborhoods and in the era of environmental awareness mess. You might guess where this is going. Well it appears that bagels and pizza and barbecue. Chicken have been put on notice in Montreal. The city has plans to crack back down on wood ovens in restaurants in restaurants that use charcoal might be affected as well. The city of Montreal says it won't actually force in the ICONIC BAGEL institutions to shut down their ovens but they are going to prevent any new businesses from operating the same way and what the year long controversy over for the future of wood. Burning Ovens has forced us to grapple with is this. What is Montreal without Montreal bagels? How do certain types of foods come to define the city and what happens? When the way you make? Those foods becomes a hazard Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Dan Baluyevsky is the New York. Times candidate correspondent based in Montreal. Aw Not far from the bakeries. Hey Dan good morning first of all I got to ask you because this is a question that will set up the rest of this interview. Are you a Fairmont Bagel guy or or a sandbox bagel Guy You're trying to get me deported from Montreal. I mean this is a religious question in the city so I'm not sure I can pray. Give my allegiance allegiance on plays but I can say that the key to winning my heart over a Bagel is serving me one hot right out of the oven and I think that wins the day when it it comes to be versus. So what happens when you start asking montrealers about bagels and you tell them. This is for the New York Times. Well Eagles on a culinary faultline and Montreal choosing between San Diego or or fairmount as choosing between you know the mets or the Yankees in New York City But in general montrealers are very proud of their bagels. It's one of the few things that Unites Quebecers so I think when the New York Times shows interest in bagels people are generally delighted by the global interest. One of the things you did that fascinated me. Because I've been to to both of these places and and did not quite assimilate the history is how far these two institutions go back. Can you sort of talk a little bit about the history of solutions. Sure one of the most fascinating things about this story was learning a history of both bagel places which are part of the social fabric of the city of it also part of the Jewish history of Montreal so fairmount Bagel which claims to be the oldest is owned by softened family and Orleans last Schaaf Min's uh-huh grandfather came over from Kiev in Nineteen nineteen originally had a Bagel stand in area of the city known as AL also Known as the main and it was a big place alleyway near Schwartz's and other iconic Jewish or Delhi and you know generations later three generations. Later Irwin now runs fairmount senior. which is a few blocks away in this hipster neighborhood? COBB called Mile. End was founded by Holocaust survivor and another colleague I believe in the nineteen fifties and I fifty seven and a young Italian immigrant. Boy Roy Called Joe Montana came to roll bagels when he was twelve years old. The Holocaust survivor became like a father to him and then eventually took over the business. So it's a wonderful kind of amylum of multicultural Montreal. Is there a rivalry between the two. It's sort of I think one of the funniest darkest comments someone made about my stories that it's not so much mets versus Yankees a Sunni versus Shia There amount or or or a sandwich or I mean. Obviously it's over the top analogy but yes. There's an incredible rivalry Both claim to be the oldest day. We'll play some Montreal Well same eater takes issue with the fact that fairmount says it's the oldest because fairmount was closed for a time as if that wasn't enough fairmount says it all biggles are perfectly symmetrical and the owner of San Diego says nonsense. All bagels are like snowflakes. Each one has a different shape and then turn Thurmond also has the bragging rights of saying that it's bagels. Were the first to go to outer space. Because the owner of FAIRMONT's cousin is a Canadian asteroid who took sixteen gene. Sesame seed Bagels to trash all space station several years ago so the rivalry is pretty intense but also cordial what is so special. So about Montreal bagels in particular like just as foodstuffs. What makes them different? You know I have to say Having lived in London Paris Brussels you stumble Prague Rock and massive Foodie. I mean there's this. This wonderful alchemy Montreal Bagel. That's hard to replicate anywhere else. In the world you know in particular compared to other bagels. Is London a Toronto The key to the Montreal Bagel is that it is boiled in honey infused water before being big and a wood burning oven and and you know it's just absolutely delicious heated. Hot Out of the bag and You know it's one of those beautiful Montreal moments can you put your finger on on any Taste or texture differences between the two Montreal Bakeries I think the main thing I've noticed is that the same bagels listen to have bigger holes than the fairmount Bagel bagels. Perhaps back or when Schloffmans claim that they're more symmetrical maybe they'll be more dainty looking the The semi ones look do. Look I guess if you use the snowflake analogy they all do seem to be a bit different looking and a bit. Bigger having a decent recent more girth but people have done blind taste tests and On able to distinguish between the two. We wanted to talk to you today because there's so much history and cultural significance here but there's also change coming. Potentially what is happening now to Bagels in Montreal. Well the UH link of the story was the fact that Neighbors of both David places and the hipster mile and neighbor the neighborhood near the plateau. Montreal are complaining about the pollution caused by the Wood Burning Evans which produce you know particularly which can lead to respiratory problems respiratory problems like asthma and produce pollutants like benzene. So neighbors are unhappy. Some neighbors are unhappy about the environmental implications of wood-burning Ivan's CD's considering a number of things one of which is passing you know a bylaw that would would force a wood burning oven businesses to install filters there's and so it's created this kind of Bagel battle or bigger war if you will between people who want to safeguard the lower and cultural bagel making and environmentalists who argue that the bagels come to press the environmental implications are too dire and that would bring up should be phased out. This is maybe a dumb. I'm question because there's there's only a few of these places do we have any actual evidence beyond anecdotal That these ovens are are causing harm. Yes I mean You know it all it all depends on the degree of harm but there is scientific evidence that you know these ovens do to produce particularly. It's that they do emit benzene and you know there's a real health and environmental hazards however one must calibrate that against other you know more egregious forums of pollution and climate change causing laurie trucks and advantages and excetera. So I guess everything is relative but now the CD itself has done. Yeah studies showing that the Devon's harmful what is this like as a political issue For the city given all the culture that we've just mentioned well I think it's a IT'S A. It's a very sensitive issue with the CD bagels in particular are so much a part of the Cultural Lor also The Portuguese immigrant community of Montreal before having rotisserie chicken places. A tiny community has pizzeria. So I mean it's not just the Bible so there's an economic point two eight. It

I showed shoulder this weird rash she was like Oh oh you have lime disease just like yeah. My name is Taylor quimby hi. I have a confession two summers ago just weeks after my colleague Hannah was diagnosed with lyme disease I got it to Hannah got caught in the middle of something strange a feud between two doctors working at the same clinic one who said she had lyme disease and another who said she probably didn't and and she wound up getting two rounds of antibiotics before feeling mostly better. It was different for me. My doctor saw the rash gave me antibiotics and that was that and that was the end of your dealings. With why am I think so you know if you're reading a lot about lyme disease as you do get a little paranoid that the little things that come up could be somehow associated with having been sick like what it like seasonal depression in the winter anxiety.

Male Black Widows Poach Rivals' Approaches
"This is scientific. Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata for male black widow spiders. Finding a mate is risky risky business. They have to go on an epic journey. Catherine Scott in Iraq knowledge EST at the University of Toronto. If the population she studies on Canada's Vancouver Hoover Island she says the spiders only twelve percent chance of surviving their scramble over sand dunes implants and they have very poor eyesight and their traveling at night so one way males find females is by sniffing from afar the fair Ramon perfume on their webs but Scott has now discovered an alternative way males find mates by subjecting the spiders to a race for each male before he started. We weighed him in on a tiny scale and we painted him with racing stripes and measured the length of his his legs. We had a finish line of fairmount omitting females and we released males at various distances from those females to see whether they arrived out of females. Weber not and how fast they got their what suppressor was at the males that started farthest nearly two hundred feet away actually traveled fastest towards females else and the reason they poached the pads of their rivals. WHO's been continuous. Soak drag lines as they move. These spiders are much more adept at walking and running on silk than they are on the ground so we realized that maybe the males that we released far away from the females were encountering. These silk highways left by rival males else and running along them. The details are in the proceedings of the Royal Society. B and follow up experiments in the lab confirmed that male black widows are indeed willing to risk a run in with a rival to win a chance to pass on their genes a chance that makes it worth traveling along the Silk Road. Thanks for listening for scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Indonesia.

"Voice of seeing Louis big change last week made in Springfield, Illinois, where the governor and the legislature have approved slot machines and sports betting for that state, and it's good news for our friends at Fairmount park. President Brian Zander is in the house right now. And we were just talking off the air about Boston, which of course, the Bruins are playing the blues in the Stanley Cup in Boston. They are closing down after eighty four years Suffolk downs where they've had horse racing, and that's going the way the a dodo bird. I think this week. Yeah, it's, it's really kinda sad. I was living in the Boston area for some time. When Suffolk downs was the place to go and really what's happened. It's quite honestly, the same thing that could have happened to us. And that is racetracks that don't have alternative forms of gaming, whether it be sports betting or slots or card rooms or something they simply can't compete with all the other race wrecks that do have such things. So last week the legislature, and with the governor in Illinois have approved sports betting and slot machines for places like Fairmount park. Yes. So there were six new casinos approved, including one for the city of Chicago, which was obviously very important in getting the Bill passed on a statewide level because that's where all the votes are. Right. So there's six new casinos. And then there's three race wrecks that are left in the state. When I first started there were seven, and so the three racetracks that are left will now be allowed to become what they call abra see. No. And also with sports, wagering what's going to happen at Fairmount park? Then will will you be able to wager on the NFL or major league baseball or the NBA while there. Oh, sure, the, the only you'd be really able to wage on anything and they'll be everything from simple bets. Over under win or lose to very complex proposition bets. The only restriction that they did, I think. Which is a good idea is you have to bet on Illinois collegiate sports in this in the state of Illinois. So we can't bet north western games, or, or Illinois, or champagne or anything like that. Can you bet on a batter or an inning? Well, that's what they call a tier to wager. So a simple bed saved by b you can bet on the cardinals, and they're an over under on the number of runs. And so there's a line there. But then it gets more interesting. You can you can say in the game bet on what is Paul Goldschmidt gonna do next at bat. Is he going to get a single as a double is he gonna hit a home run? You can bet all those kind of props, and obviously, the ads go up. And that's those kind of wagers those in game wagers are proving to be very popular, especially with the, the younger demographic. But you have to be at Fairmont park to do that. You don't have to be at Fairmont, you can register there, but you, you do have to be in the state of Illinois, and they will they will love. They'll take a look at that. And that will be by geo location, just like you. You have a GPS service in your car. So if you're, if you're coming over the poplar street bridge, and you haven't hit the welcome to Illinois sign yet. Your bet won't be taken. But so you can cross the river. Get out your iphone and bet through Fairmount park. Yes. Eventually once we set that up, and of course, that's the mobile platform, and then what they call the retail platform will be actually say a part of Fairmount park of being sportsbook from having the big odds board. And you know what we already have a thousand televisions, but several big screens. And then you can watch whatever it is you would like to wage around. So what happens to the casino Queen? Are you going to start owning them or so the so the, the consideration of the casino, Queen was very, very important in this legislation? They've been really suffering in the last four or five years, really Fairmont park has been no part of that because we haven't done anything. We don't have one even single. Slot machines. But we're there were being really killed is with these, you know, up to five video gaming terminals that are in literally every single Byron Illinois. And so they've just been kind of, in a in their ninety Saint Louis would every single town that surrounds e sale, Louis they're popping up everywhere. And it's really really, you know, hurt their business. So they've been kind of drifting down. But what this legislation does is it has an effect a hold harmless agreement for not just the casino Queen. But also the city of Saint Louis that relies quite a bit on the revenue from the casino Queen. Right. Yeah. Sure, they were at the point where they're going to have to start laying off firefighters, and police. And that's not a very good look for our, our region. In addition to that there's a local tax on on the on the winnings. The vote say would happen at Fairmont park in whereas. Many of the original boats that, that tax would go entirely to the city of Collinsville where the where the receipt, no is. In this case, they, they split it up where Collins would get forty percent all, which may be affected impacted as thirty percent and the casino Queen. We'll get thirty percent of the of the of the tax revenues meant for localities directly from Fairmont park. So we think the combination of those two things we think that it's really put the casino Queen any Saint Louis in a much better position. And the Representative from east Saint Louis a Representative of Greenwood and the Senator from east Saint Louis area, Senator belt, they've both voted. Yes. On the on the measure. So when will sports betting start at Fairmount park? Well, that's a, that's a great question. The Illinois gaming board which will oversee all of these things in, in two days, the legislature managed to give them a whole bunch of work. They have to approve. Who've six casinos, including as I said, the city of Chicago, which that's I'm assuming going to be complicated. They have to develop an application for the existing racetracks of which Fairmount is one so that they can get into the into the casino business in they have to really from scratch, right. Rules for sports, wagering. Oh, that's going to be a long process, isn't it? Well, they've done it. The thing is, is we'll, I think we'll be the sixteenth state that will have legalized sports betting. So there's a lot that they can learn from other states and, and look at their rules, and see if they're ethical under the statute, that was just passed depending, how bad we want the money, we can just Xerox the other rules and just right in Illinois, instead of wealth has Michigan. Yeah. I think, well, the bunnies actually let's face it. That's the reason why this was done. You know, the, the new governor governor Pritzker is very, very embarrass. He's got some really big plans. That's. His kind of his motto is think big and he's gotten through quite an agenda, virtually everything that he tried for, in terms of raising the minimum wage tobacco Twenty-one, he's, he's going to sign legalized recreational marijuana Bill. And so now he has the, the gaming part is, is meant for what they call vertical construction, which is anything, that's not a you know, a road or highway. And that's because, you know, we have prisons that are falling down in schools, hospitals that really need a lot of help, and that's put the, the revenue from these sources meant to do if you if you weren't able to get the sports gaming the gambling, or if you weren't able to get the slot machines, would you still be able to stay in business? Well, we just talked about Suffolk and Suffolk downs in Boston. Yes. And that's, that's the reason why they went out of business. You know, Charlie we, we might have been able to hold on with a very, very short meet of, of maybe ten days or so just so. That we would have something there. But that isn't really what anyone wants right now. Everybody Fairmount on the backstretch the horsemen and the trainers. They're just happy now that they will soon be able to make a decent living. They won't have to move out of their homes. And so, at this point everybody's in a good mood, I guess, so. Well, thank you very much.

And some of the ramifications we're gonna get into that on the voice of Saint Louis, but I want to tell you about Stewart crawl our main man at beam of Saint Louis I was just texting a fellow today, who's actually in Ireland about the beam because he wants one was asking me about that. And I don't think Stewart goes all the way to Ireland, but he does serve as everybody within the signal of fifty thousand red hot watts. If you're if you can hear my voice, yes, Stewart crawl will install a beam vacuum for you. I've talked about that beam central vacuum for a long time. It cleans all surfaces from the carpet to the tile the fireplace. The ceiling fan. It's got a lot of suction so it cleans things better. In fact, I just use it last week to clean up my car vacuum. All the mats. If there's pet hair all over the place they can take care of that. In fact, they've got these rollers which sometimes you know, if you have a vacuum the rollers accumulate, a lot of that hair. But with some of the new beam appliances that hair can get cut off.

"I felt like my core deliverable in lots of cases to get trust was setting expectations. So it's in a variance of predictability, right? Got an expectations. Just very ability. What I say going to happen is going to happen. If I could sit your expectation of this or that, then whatever great. But when it comes to debt, what exactly is set the expectation there, would you define us didn't debt a question and technical that is something that is being inadvertently promoted by things like lean lean startup. So lean startup says get to market as quick as you can start getting feedback from customers and broadly. That's right. But when you say gets market as quickly as you can I mean, you can get pre- fast. Very literally like, let's say you. So you stand up. Very simple application, you probably use the framework rails. Django one of the common ones, which is in itself. A light form of technical debt. It allows you stand advocation very quickly. But that application by it's nature's generalist is not customized business case that you are the you are building toward. And that is a little bit of technical debt. Because if you took the time to build a very customize Afghan from the get-go, you would take a lot longer allowed her, but it would be aimed exactly at the the business case that you're building for now what lean says is until you get feedback from customers. You can't even be sure of the business case you're building for and it's right? That's this is right. But it definitely promotes us taking on technical debt. So the next step is like, oh, well, we need to build in our case for our business. We have a parcel of the persons that out of get. And so when we first that thing out we were looking at the library does Fairmount as work because some nice obstructions and some of the things, and so it wasn't quite what we wanted. But we dropped it in because it got us a market really quickly. Now, you know, you fast forward down the road, and we're having conversations about now we have a bunch of customers were in market ship is booth. Having right. We're having conversations about rewriting our processor, which is like core of our business logic. And we have to work around this module in sort of rebuild it in bring it in house, and that is technical debt in motion in it is completely unavoidable. It is it is everyone will always do it because it's a smart play. And fortunately are around here. We have pretty candid open conversations about that stuff. Like. Come to table and say look weak like we tackle this right now or we or it's gonna be harder tackling future. If we defer the debt, right what you take one credit card in the open of new credit card. You pay paid off with the other one in really what you're doing is. You're seeing creasing the total amount of debt. And so when engineers come to the table to advocate for hey, we gotta tackle this now with they're saying, we can't just keep deferring the stat or the problems snowball in the way that financial debt can snowball and bankrupt you and so the, you know, again, all startups will always run into this forever because getting to market quickly so valuable but getting to market quickly. Also, the thing that causes you to incur debt, and our view is that management needs to start pricing that in as part of the constituting business. I guess then the question is if all suffer teams are going to incur to Odette. How do you do wisely? Right. So is the data. We're talking about things you, and I haven't had traditionally now, we tend to have obviously from get prime and other tools out there that are similar to saying. Hey, here's surface level data of of doing engineering have you how do you take on techno debt in the wise manner because of his got to be there?
